Dakkar plunged into the sea pool, ignoring the cold that ate into his body, making his joints ache and nearly forcing the precious breath from his body. The old fisherman had said that he’d caught a glimpse of an old sea chest down here. An old sea chest and something glittering, golden and bright.

The water pressed in on Dakkar as he swam deeper. Seaweed swayed and danced amongst the coral and rocks. Millions of silver fish scattered in front of him as he lashed his arms out, powering down towards the bottom.

Then something moved. A slick, slithering motion in the corner of his eye. What was it? A shark? A conger eel? Dakkar began to wonder if diving into this adventure had been wise…

Dakkar was scared he didn’t know what it was, he was trying to swim away but his foot got caught on seaweed. He got scissors out his pocket but he dropped them “oh this is just great,” he thought.

His gas tank was near enough empty he was panicking. He managed to get out of the seaweed. Dakkar swam down and down to the very bottom it was a …chest of gold. It was being moved by a killer whale, his face was pale as the whale turned around and started swimming towards him.

The whale took no notice of him and swam away.  “Phew!” thought Dakkar as he carried on swimming towards the glittering chest of gold.  Suddenly, out of nowhere, an electric eel appeared, he jumped back in shock as it approached him. The cold was unbearable. His limbs were paralysed with cold, shock and fear. The air in his tank had almost run out and the electric eel was getting closer every second. He held his breath and prepared for the worst –death. He closed his eyes and hoped for the best. Then the eel spotted a long school of fish.  Dakkar looked and noticed an oxygen tank lying beside the treasure chest on a dead body.

                He inched over to the man and slid the tank off his shoulders. He put the tank on and breathed in. It was full. That was odd. He swam carefully towards the chest and forced it open. Dakkar gasped. Inside the chest were glittering jewels. Suddenly a gust of bubbles shot upwards from the chest, pushing Dakkar miles away from it.

Dakkar looked around trying to figure out what he had witnessed. Although he could

see clearly through the water and silver fish, he found nothing. As Dakkar continued

swimming further down, it became more strenuous. He heard the sound of fins

swimming through the water, Dakkar looked around and was dumb founded by what

he saw. A creature with the body of a snake and bright green eyes and scales was

starting to circle him. It was like nothing he had ever seen before, a creature so elegant

and pleasant to look at. It was silent as it swam through the clear blue water. Its green

eyes and shiny scales gave it a friendly look; it was 7ft long with a somewhat wide

body. It had a thin layer of skin sticking up from the spine acting as a fin and it had

2 antenna on the top of its head with 2 half inch bits of flesh on the top, shaped like

orbs. They glowed pleasantly even though it was in the midday sun.

Dakkar was entranced by the beauty and gracefulness of this magical creature.

Is this my imagination, or is this even real? He didn’t realise that a creature could be as beautiful as this. He realised that the thing in front of his eyes was getting closer. A few. seconds later it touched me with its webbed hand. I was knocked out cold…

A few hours later, I woke up from my deep sleep. Where was I? Washed upon a shore in a cave. The water was gently lapping over my feet. I tried to stand up but I couldn’t. Why? I looked at my legs. OH NO! These aren’t legs this is a….. TAIL! They were wrapped in scales. They were shining in the water. I shuffled to the back of the cave were I studied my new body. Moments later I got back in to the water and swam down, down and down until I had sight of the gems glimmering. Suddenly I realised that I was breathing without my tank. I felt around and found something unusual. They were gills. I was reborn. Dakkar was ready to begin his new life as a creature of the sea. He went searching for a new place to live. He thought that the best place to start would be the mysterious cave that I woke up in. As he started swimming he came across a village of mermaids. This will be his new lifestyle.
