"I didn't know I was going to get super-healing! It's neat."

Permalink

“It’s what keeps us young when we get big.”

Permalink

"We're not going to get old? Cooooool! How old will we get, will we just be kids forever or what?"

Permalink

“Nah, we just get grown up and then stop. You’ll still look real young and strong when your grandkids have grandkids.”

Permalink

"It's good that I'll get to try being a grown-up, and it's really really good that I won't get old and die! That's the best news ever!" She impulsively goes to give Michael a hug.

Permalink

Michael hugs back. “You’re cuddly for a lizard!”

Permalink

Margaret laughs. "Well, you're cuddly for a mer-person, so there!"

Permalink

“Mer are very cuddly!”

Permalink

"That's not what I would have imagined, but you're the only one I know, so that sounds pretty plausible!"

Permalink

“You should totally mate with a mer when we’re bigger. Maybe they’d actually have scaly tails.”

Permalink

"That would be cool, yeah! But having kids requires, like, kissing and stuff, which, ew. With anybody, I mean, kissing a mer wouldn't be any better or worse than kissing anybody else. Maybe when I'm older it won't sound as gross."

Permalink

“Probably. The grown ups seem to like it.”

Permalink

"I'm not sure how much to trust that; at least some grownups seem to think having wings and scales isn't cool. But if human grownups and mer grownups both like it they probably aren't all crazy."

Permalink

"Well, human grownups can be really weird about it."

Permalink

"What kind of weird?"

Permalink

“Well, you ever notice clothes mostly cover the bits involved?”

Permalink

"Yeah. I mean, I used to wear clothes over everything because . . . I don't know why, it seemed like a good idea at the time. But yeah, clothes always cover those parts."

Permalink

"Also, that marrying thing they do."

Permalink

"I could see myself getting married someday if I liked someone enough. Do Mer grownups not get married?"

Permalink

"Nah, they just mate with whoever. Way better. Keeps the genes all mixed up."

Permalink

"Huh. I never thought of humans as not having their genes mixed up enough, but whatever works."

Permalink

"Stops things from getting boring, too."

Permalink

"Does that mean mer don't fall in love with each other?"

Permalink

"Hmm? I mean, they do. But I guess variety is nice. So, what do you wanna do today?"

Permalink

"We could go visit your parents. Or my parents; I think they still think I'm missing."
