A Mermaid "Tale"

Once upon a time there was a beautiful mermaid at the bottom of the sea.  And she lived in a princess castle under the sea.  Her flippers flapped in the sea breeze as she flipped her tail up and down as she was swimming in her castle.  One morning the mermaid woke up to see beautiful pieces of coral.  It was a coral reef around the whole castle.  And she found that they were growing.  Another morning the coral reef was still growing.  The creatures that lived there were sea horses, groups of fish, and also there were beautiful other mermaids that flapped their fins in the breeze as they swam to the castle that the other mermaid lived in. And they had a great mermaid feast. The end.
