For all those who felt the Disney version was a little too happy or wondered if mermaids have souls...may I present the original mermaid story, Hans Christian Andersen's classic tale. 

This story was written as part of Hans Christian Andersen's collection of fairy tales and is now in the public domain, which is why I have posted someone else's work on my profile.

The mermaids in my stories do not endorse this work. It has been denounced as a work of fiction and anyone who wishes to discuss this work with Vanessa, Belinda, Maria, Sirena or any other mermaid has been warned.
