Mike got home around one in the morning, collapsing on his couch in his costume and all. He ripped of his mask and tossed it across the room.

“I quit.” He didn’t mean it. He could never stop being a hero. But being beat up every night was really put a damper on the whole thing.

He was almost asleep when his cellphone rang, the screen lighting up and buzzing. Mike sighed and answered without checking the caller id.

“Listen, I don’t think-”

“They killed my parents.”

He shot up, already starting to change while he was still on the phone.
“Maya, where are you?”
“At home. They killed them Micheal.”

“Give me twenty minutes.”
In 15 minutes he was walking through her front door, past her personal guards. When he reached the study the scent of blood was already strong. Maya was crouched next to her father’s head, cradling it in her lap. Slowly he moved beside her, gently putting his hands around her shoulder.

“Were you here when it happened?”

“No, I had called you as soon as I found them. But it hasn’t been long.”

I packed up a small bag full of the essential things that I wouldn’t be able to get at the island. I told my friends that I would be back to the mainland in two weeks and my family that I would be home in three.

The boat ride felt long and as the mainland escaped my sight I wondered if I would ever see it again. My worst fear was drowning in the ocean and never being seen again. If I was bitten by a shark they might be able to find my body. But there was hushed talk about mermaids there and I had to see for myself. I had a camera and a diving kit so I could get close enough to see them in real life.

Mermaids were thought to be practically extinct long before I was born so I only heard stories of the wonderful creatures that spoke in melodies. My parents used to tell me that they weren’t really gone, they just swammed down deeper than anything man made could go.

There were so many different types and even more that land people didn’t know about. This could be their last reachable habitat so if that meant that I had to take a small boat to a tiny island then I would do it.
