Kyou’s tablet makes a noise. It briefly interrupts the music in the background.

“People vary.”

 

“And mermaids aren’t it.”

The noise makes him freeze, for a moment. 

 

“...what else is there?”

“Selkies, yeti, other things you’d expect. Microdimensions like this one. You’ve been in a temporal disruption. Mimics. There’s plenty. It’s a large field.”

“A mermaid. Don’t worry about charming.”

He stands up.

He follows, one hand on the wall to steady himself.
