You lived in a large body of fresh water in the middle of a forest.  Your body of water had a waterfall and fish and was very deep so you could swim around to your heart's content.  But as happy as you were you still felt something was missing.  It was probably friends.  You were the only mermaid that you knew of and you couldn't exactly sprout legs and go look for others.... Or could you? You didn't really know since you had never tried to get out of the water.  All the friends you had were the fish and the ducks that lived near the water.  Occasionally a hiker would walk by your body of water, so you knew what humans looked like but never actually talked to one.

You were gathering algae and other green plants under the water.  Your long wavy (h/c) hair flowed behind you as you swam swiftly around.  Once you had gathered a good amount of greens you swam up to the surface.  You swam to the edge of the water and rested your arm on one of the many rocks there.  You took a big piece of algae and stuffed it in your mouth, chewed it and swallowed.  That was what you ate.  It's all you had there in the water.  Suddenly you heard leaves crunching loudly.  Someone was coming! You quickly hid behind a larger rock and peeked out slightly to see the human that decided to walk loudly to your spring.  He was a rather tall boy with sandy blond hair and a silly cowlick.  He wore a pair of glasses and a white t shirt with jeans.  In his hands he held a plastic bag full of something, you weren't quite sure what it was but one thing was for sure.  It had an....interesting smell.

"UGH!! the young boy sighed irritated, man was he loud.

He dropped the plastic bag and sat down on a rock for a rest.  You continued to watch the loud boy.   Suddenly Blinkie, a Mallard duck you befriended and named flew down and landed on the rock you were hiding behind.  Blinkie let out a loud quack as a hello to you.  The boy looked over at the duck sitting on the rock loudly quacking at nothing.  You kept shhing Blinkie but the duck didn't seem to get it.  Finally the boy stood up and walked over to the duck.

"What are you quacking at crazy duck?" he asked as he peered over the rock.  You had no time to hide so you just sat in the water as the boy starred at you with a confused and puzzled look.

"What are you doing in the water lady?" the boy asked.

'Maybe he didn't see my tail' you thought.

"Ummmm I like it?" you answered, though it sounded more like a question than an answer.

"Isn't it cold?" he asked.

"I'm used to it." You replied.  You weren't used to communicating with people so this was very awkward for you.

"oh....  I'm Alfred by the way."  Alfred said holding out his hand.

'Why is he holding out his hand?' you thought confused.  You had never talked to a person before so these social things that humans did was new to you.  You just starred at his hand thinking of why he could possibly be holding out his hand.   

"Is something wrong?" Alfred asked confused.

"no" you replied.

"Are you like germaphobic or something?" he asked still holding out his hand.  You were panicking.  What was with this human and all his strange words and ways of socializing?.  

"what's that?" you asked.

"the fear of germs" he stated as if every person knew that.

"What's a germ?"  You asked confused.

"come on don't play that 'what' game with me" Alfred said smiling.

'What is the What game? What is wrong with this guy?' you thought.

"I gotta go now, see you later" he said as he got up grabbed his bag and walked off leaving you still confused.

It had been a week since Alfred came to your spring.  Even though everything he said to you that day confused you, you still enjoyed talking to the strange human and wished that he would come back to chat.

You were lost in thought thinking about Alfred, when you were snapped out of your daydream by the crunching of leaves.  You looked over and saw Alfred happily walking over to your spring.  Once he spotted you he waved his hand.  You weren't quite sure what that meant but you mimicked his actions and waved back.  He came and sat down on a rock near the water.  

"Swimming again?" he asked smiling a goofy smile.

"yes"

"I never caught your name, what is it?" he asked still smiling.

"[Name]" you replyed.

"Cool" he simply stated.  

"Is the water warm?" he asked.

"I suppose" you answered.  Then Alfred went on to talking about random things.  You listened closely though you did not understand most of the things he said.  'It must be a human thing' you thought.

Eventually Alfred had to go, but he asked if he could meet you here the next day.  You agreed seeing as you didn't really go anywhere and you enjoyed talking to him.
I have always liked the idea of mermaids so i made this I am planning to make more but if nobody likes it then I won't so please comment and tell me what you think!

No prob. :3 I see you're uploading these pretty quickly, and that's fine, but just remember if you look a story over before posting it, you can notice and correct a few grammar mistakes and stuff.

I read the other two chapters of this, I'm loving it so far.
