2 Works in Real Mermaids Series - Hélène Boudreau

Spring Break my Freshman year was turning out to be a bit odd. Okay, so my whole life was turning out to be a bit odd. But it had somehow become my new normal. And I was okay with that. I was even more okay with things being better than ever. Yet something told me some even bigger changes lurked just over the horizon.

I felt like I had a relationship with a certain park bench. Plenty of important life events had happened while sitting on it: finding Mom after we thought she'd drowned; the Change event; Luke proposing to me; going into labor with our first child. Sure, things had been really weird for a while, but I was finally ready for things to get back to normal. Pft! Who was I kidding? My life hadn't been normal since the summer of my fourteenth year when Mom had drowned...or so we'd thought. Then the following May I'd discovered, to my horror, that I was a mermaid! And...things kind of went downhill from there. Little did I know that my forty-fifth birthday would bring the most earth-shattering surprise I could imagine, and I didn't mean my latest unborn child.
