What seemed to break us out of the staring was my phone going off.
I picked it up and answered.
"What was in the package?" it was Ned.
"I'm gonna have to get back to you on that," I told him before hanging up, cutting off his protests on the other end.
I looked back inside the box, there was no note or anything else in the box.
I looked back at her, she was about the size of my hand, about six inches long.
She looked wary as I sat in my desk chair and rolled closer. Now that I was eye-level, I guessed I wasn't as scary to her.
"What are you?" I murmured as I tilted my head.
She tilted her head, mimicking me, I realized.
"Are you copying me?" I asked raising an eyebrow, she mimicked my eyebrow.
Well, this was better than her being scared.
"Rude," I told her a bit playfully before getting out of the chair.
"I have no idea what to do with you," I sighed.
What did she eat? Would she stay that size forever? How did she get here? Where did she come from? What even was she?
I glanced at my backpack, I did have homework to do...
I woke up to my alarm blaring.
I jolted up and looked around the room, the giant pot was still on my desk, where I'd fallen asleep.
I glanced at the mirror, there was a mark on my face from the pencil.
I hit the snooze on the alarm, which had startled the little fish/merperson.
She had her head above water and was squinting at me, that's when I realized her vision was probably not the best because she was used to being underwater.
I wasn't sure how to fix that though... What was I going to do with her while I was at school?
I picked up the pot and put it under the desk, she gave a squeak of protest but didn't do anything else.
"Sorry, but Aunt May can't find you," I muttered as I grabbed a set of clothes and ran into the bathroom to get ready for school.
