Fall into the first story of this Adult twisted tale of your favorite fairy tale story.
My life was almost perfect until the unthinkable happened. Darkness began to surround me everyday, almost to the point I’m tempted to let it take my humanity away just to end the pain.
My best friend Edna is the only one that talks to me anymore. My own mother even despises me. She is a mermaid like me. The only difference is, she wants to lose her humanity but not until she makes my life miserable.
Most of the town thinks I murdered someone, but I didn't. I would never kill the only light I had in my life. My ex boyfriend Gage and his father Mr. Cada are threatening me and using the town to get back at me for a crime I didn’t commit.
The only way to stop both my mother and Mr. Cada is to sacrifice myself. Something I really don't want to do, but have no choice. I don't get to have a happy ever after.
