Today was a great day for a performance.
The waters were clear and the plankton were glistening. Royal mermaids and men had been practicing Ciel-mermaid's grand debut choreography for weeks. This coming-of-age ceremony at which the next in the long line of royal fish would sing for the masses was the highlight of each mer-year. The shell-stage had been polished and various marine instruments were tuned to perfection.
Unfortunately, Ciel-mermaid was currently fluttering his fins as quickly as he could in a direction that would take him, not to his Royal Debut, but somewhere near the closest shore.
It was unheard of for the aquatic bourgeois to be anywhere near land. Surely only mer-commoners should be risking their lives to retrieve tasty plants that grow in the sun soaked shallows, as there was nearly nothing else of interest in these human-infested waters. But today Ciel-mermaid was on a mission.
For several nights, the eye-patched mer-shota had seen a mysterious floating human contraption (a...shop? a ship?) near here. One night he had hoisted himself up along the outside of the structure to peer inside. There wasn't much that was special up there, but he had spotted a person unlike any he had previously seen. The demonic looking man had flowing, black hair and red eyes and was throwing some curious pronged utensils at a wooden target.
Ciel-mermaid was taken aback—every silver implement hit squarely on its mark! Such accuracy and efficiency! Only one thought then came to his mer-mind.
"This human shall become my butler!"
