The Siren’s Secret

My Captain

Surely you must know by now there is no longer a need to plunder, nick or pillage any longer, searching the horizon for a glimpse of my rainbow-hued scales to break the water.

You’ve already stolen my heart.




The ultimate question: are you on your way to steal my mermaid?

  8. This could be the beginning of a wonderful new love story. Pirate captains and mermaids… too much fun.

  9. This put a HUGE smile on my face. I think “Fondly, Meri” was my favorite. Gorgeous!

    • HI CC,
      thank you for the visit. I’m glad you liked it as a letter, it seemed right for a mermaid, instead of being stolen to admit she already “had been.”

      I appreciate you coming over to read.

  11. A love letter! Brilliant. Makes me think of the Ghost and Mrs. Muir, one of my all-time favorite movies. Luscious.

    Love your take on the prompt Kir.

    • If I find this captain and can pry him from Meri, I promise a proper introduction.
      Thank you so much for visiting and commenting, I appreciate it very much.

    • I’m so glad you liked it Kymm, it was the first thing I thought of when I read “mermaid”…and after a few rewrites it was the one thing that stayed.

      Thanks for the visit!
