A New Encounter (The Boy and the Mermaid – part 1)

He dives to catch it, but another set of hands lay under his. A girl in the water. He sits up. She cups the little fairy in her hands bringing it to her mouth and swallows it. She then disappears into the water.

 

The boy spends the next week capturing another fairy.  He then  returns to where he saw the girl, but she’s not there. He leaves the fairy in a jar. Returning the next day he sees the fairy gone and the jar filled with water, in it she had left a little fish.
