Disclaimer: I own nothing that you recognise!
People always ask me why I love water and everything to do with it, and yet never go in it. To be fair, it wasn’t an observation I would have thought huma- I mean other people could make. Okay, never mind. Probably best for me to explain what I meant by that….comment.
To put it bluntly, I am not exactly the most human person you will ever meet. What I mean to say is that I wasn’t born here. I mean I was born on Earth, but not on it exactly. I bet I have really confused you now, haven’t I? Okay, here goes it. I was born in the ocean. There, I said it; the ocean.
I was born to a mermaid, but she wasn’t really a mermaid when I was conceived. Urgh, I hate that word; conceived. Anyway, she was human when I was… formed, but when she found out she was expecting me she decided to go back home and raise me the way her father, my grandfather, approved. You see, there’s this sort of biological rule that says that a mermaid or merman can become a human, but a human cannot become a mermaid or a merman. I don’t know the full details but it has something to do with a gene that you can only be born with, because when you transform into something else you usually receive certain genes to make the transformation complete. It’s called genetic manipulation. Only that doesn’t work as far as merpeople are concerned because we are what muggle scientists would call a genetic impossibility.
One more thing before I continue, there are different types of mermaids. The ones that live in the Atlantic Ocean are more…. Savage than we are, and the ones in the pacific are what muggles call Sirens. We are basically the perfect combination; beauty, intelligence and kindness. Not to mention the transformation ability, which other mermaids cannot do by the way.
Okay, back on track. I was raised in the ocean, away from my father, whom I can honestly say I have never met. I had a lot of friends and loved my life completely. My mother was the kindest mermaid in the entire ocean and my grandfather was the most powerful. Surprisingly, this only made our family stronger, these opposite traits. Everything was perfect and I thought that that would never change.
How very wrong I was.
On April 9th, my eleventh birthday, my mother took me aside and explained how I had a human father and that she spent ten years of her life as a human. To say I was shocked would be the biggest understatement of the century. She also happened to mention that seven years of her human life was spent at a place called Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. As merpeople naturally possess magical genes it was too easy for her to pass as a witch. This also happened to be the place where she met daddy dearest. She was sorted into Ravenclaw, a house that prizes intelligence and he was sorted into Gryffindor, a house built on bravery. She never mentioned how it happened; only that it did. Apparently he had left her when she had found out about me so through pure heart had done the only thing she could; returned.
If all of this wasn’t enough, it was on this day that I found out that I would also be attending Hogwarts. Apparently as Princess it was my royal duty to form bonds with the human world. Aha! I knew there was something that I had forgotten to mention. My grandfather was King of Seven Seas, my mother a princess, and me obviously a princess. Anyway, this was the reason I was going to be attending Hogwarts.
My first four years at Hogwarts went by like breeze. I was sorted into Gryffindor House, just like my father, and made friends with three of the girls in my dorm; Marlene McKinnon, Alice Darcy and Lily Evans. I also made a few enemies, namely four boys who had deemed themselves the Marauders. I swear to Merlin, these boys will be the death of me.
So there’s Chapter One! Please review, it will make my day xx
