"Where have you been?!" Mum screamed at the top of her voice.

"Sorry Mum, I didn't realise the time." I fibbed.

"Well next time, turn off your phone." she sighed.

I felt so scared to face her at college tomorrow. Sitting next to a real life mermaid is hard to get your head around.

Although, I am quite curious to find out about mermaids and I want to know if there's any other creatures apart from them.

I brushed my long, dark hair into a loose ponytail and begin moisturising my skin after a long day.

My pyjamas were dirty and screwed up on my bed but I dressed myself in them anyway.

I then snuggled up in my duvet and drifted off in a deep sleep.

I couldn't breathe properly. I opened my eyes and I couldn't really see anything. It felt like I was floating so I tried to move my arms around. I noticed I was swimming, drowning and I began to panic.

A blurred creature was swimming towards me but I couldn't make it out. As it came closer and closer, it looked like Marina but in mermaid form.

Her eyes didn't have pupils in them and it was almost as if she had fangs. Then she just stood still in front of me. Everything silent.

Then out of nowhere, she screamed like those monsters in horror movies, her voice echoing throughout the ocean.

I woke up clinging onto my bed and to the sound of my alarm ringing. Somehow, Marina screaming turned out to sound my alarm.

"Good morning sweetheart." Dad said cheerfully.

"Morning." I replied back, shutting the door behind me.

When I got to college, I saw Marina standing there on her own. So, I strolled over to her.

"Wow, you had a weird dream last night." Marina chuckled.

"How did you know about that?!" I questioned. How does she know what I dream about.

"You dreamt about me being evil and that I would hurt you. When people fall asleep, I can watch their dreams. I will tell you now, I will never hurt you." she said.

So many things were going through my mind at this moment in time. First, I found out mermaids exist. Secondly, I just found out that they know what I dream about which is creepy.

"How many mermaids are there and can they all see my dreams?" I asked.

"I have no idea how many. I know a couple but as far as I know, I'm the only one who can see into dreams." Marina replied.

Now, I wished I'd never asked her anything. I wish I would've left Marina alone. I think I've got myself into a huge mess which I shouldn't be involved in.
