Merstruck by a Mermaid
I can’t speak about what I saw in the water. She forbade me. I must obey. I have no choice. I am merstruck – enamored and beholden. I am devoted entirely to the mer. My life is in her hands now. When she claims me completely, when there is nothing left of myself, when she has lain my empty shell on the seabed, this will be the only record of what happened to me. These words will be my only remains.
