Merfolk's Lullaby

To Whoever Finds This…

Kareen, my love, I hope you never read this. Today I made the worst mistake of my life. I was such an idiot. I recognised her livery on the horizon and thought I’d pick a fight with the famous Briggsy. It wasn’t her! Well it was, but cursed! Her flesh mostly rotted away, and so fierce. Like a wild animal. She didn’t kill me, only threw me in a cage. She said starving my way onto the ferry would teach me a lesson. I’m so hungry, and this is so cruel! I don’t know what Briggsy is now, Kareen. I just know she isn’t human any more.
