Magical Monday: Merfairy

Posted on July 2nd, 2012 in Stories


“Am I a mermaid or a fairy?”

Her mother lowered her sunglasses and smiled.  ”You’re whatever you want to be, honey.”

Blue eyes scowled behind pink goggles.  ”Mom.   This is important.”

“What’s important is how much detangler it’s going to take to make you look human,” her mother replied, reaching forward to muss the mass of white plastered to her daughter’s pale skin.  Even under the sweltering sun, her daughter remained the color of china all year long.  Thanks to SPF 85, of course.


“Ok, ok.”  Her mother sighed.  ”A mermaid.”

The little girl pouted, curling her arms around her pink noodle as she bobbed in the water.  ”Oh.”

“Ok, then a fairy.”

“You can’t be both,” her daughter sighed.  ”And you already said I was a mermaid.”

“Why not be both?”  Her mother glanced at her book, the chapter calling her fingers closer and closer.  ”A merfairy.”

“A merfairy?”  Light sparkled in identical pools of baby blue.  ”Like a sea fairy princess?”

“Exactly.”  Her mother had already cracked the book open.  ”Go play, honey.”

But the merfairy never heard her.  For the glittery fins slipped under the turquoise surface, gliding silently as she dove into a world where seahorses and unicorns danced with dolphins and dragons.

Because as a merfairy, she had the best of both worlds.

Stay tuned, Invisible Friends!  A new fun post mañana!

    I wish I could be a mermaid. I don’t know how to swim so if I was a mermaid I could swim where ever I wanted to.
