an excerpt

The porthole opened. Right on time. 

The swirl of mermaids brought the old, exhausted girls off the rock wall and new, rested Merme quickly took up empty slots in the line. Silently, the two women agreed and grabbed my arms. 

“Come on,” Luce said. 

“I can’t.” The words floated out of me. 

But they didn’t care.   

The line moved forward. More girls came home. More returned to work. 

My fin stayed limp in their hands. 

“I wasn’t made for this,” I murmured.  

The toll on my body had me destroyed. Working as a Barre? 

Monotony, forever. The repetitious motion over-and-over. 

An eternity of this? 

Hell no.

It was nauseatingly simple, but every inch of my being hurt too badly to be mind-numbingly bored.  

“I don’t belong here.” My voice eked out the sound. A whisper in the crowded room. It caught the scar-girl’s attention. The one who’d bet on me, or technically bet against me, the first day I’d arrived. Her fins were grubby and worn from a long day on the line. She abruptly stopped. Her one good eye, that vicious lens, turned on my skin. Stared me up and down, hanging between Chassie and Luce’s strongholds. The vehemence behind her gaze turned me ice cold. 

“You’re no better than the rest of us, Water Nymph. Get to work.”
