It was a dark, yet still night out in the ocean. The underwater people were dormant and sleeping in the deep reefs that none of the humans knew of. Their civilization was hidden away from the human eye to protect those who dwell there. One of these mermaids was Kieara. She was a beautiful mermaid. She had long brown hair with a pearly colored seashell comb in it to hold her hair out of her eyes. It was straight looking in the water, but when she sat on the rocks it was curly after it dried. She had bright golden colored eyes. She had fair skin and a birthmark of a crescent moon on her right palm. Seashells covered her breasts and some of her upper stomach in a type of tube top like wrap, and a necklace that had a shark tooth on it hung from her neck. Around her wrist was a seashell bracelet. Her tail fin was a bright baby blue. It stood out vibrantly in the water. It was beautiful, and at the tip of her fin the tail was tipped silver. This was an unusual color for a mermaid, and was dangerous. It made her stand out easily, and easily hunted. She wasnt as happy go lucky as her peers were usually in their utopia though. She had been swimming about that day, and stray too far from her safe haven underwater. She now found herself on a secluded area of beach with a deep gash in her side. She was bleeding and weak. She was still partially in the water. She was barely concious, and couldn't even move. She was laying on an old abandoned dock. Her side bleeding. The planks had collapsed and were partially in the water but led up onto the land. There was also a cove to the left of this. Above that were the rocky cliffs above the sea.
