Ta da! And that's the end. Fourteen pages, making it the longest story in THE BOOK OF LIES so far. Thanks to all the readers for keeping up with it. I usually post stories all at once, so I wasn't sure how people would feel about posting one page at a time, but people seemed to enjoy it.

Two quick things for people who like the behind the curtain part of writing --

While the story is meant to have the feel of a story from Native American mythology, really I just made it all up. I'm a huge mythology fan, from Greek and Roman (which I read as a kid) to Norse and Chinese and South American and yes, North American too. However I hate doing research, so while it would have made sense to try to find an actual myth/story to work from that really isn't what I do.

Second, a word about the framing device. For fans of Neil Gaiman's SANDMAN it might feel familiar. The prolog story to DOLL HOUSE involves a boy going out into the desert where he is told a story by a tribal elder, a story told only to boys. After reading that so many years ago, I wondered what a story told only to women would be like. Both stories involve gods and tragic love stories, although they are pretty different in how they deal with them. If you liked this story and haven't read Neil Gaiman's SANDMAN I highly recommend it. Some brilliant stuff in there!

Aw man, now we'll never know what he wished for. But on the other hand, I like how much it leaves open to the imagination.

The third question.. D:

Love can be so painful. Because it's so powerful. I think I see.. There was only one way out of this. D:

"Watching they married, as they had a child together…"

I think you are missing an "as".

Whatever he wished for, it appears he got it in a way that didn't unravel the space-time continuum, so I hope he's happy. Powerful story.

Good one! Good one! You should write a woman's love story too. But I think The Little Mermaid could be of that theme.

Thanks. This story is kind of a response to the prologue story to Neil Gaiman's SANDMAN: DOLL HOUSE, so that's kind of the woman's version. I do have a mermaid/romance story done already -- THE GIRL I SHOULDN'T LOVE. I'm also working on another story which is a darker version of THE LITTLE MERMAID set in a swamp. That's going to be my first graphic novel length story. The artist is about half-way through, so hopefully it will be done by the end of April! That story is called WITCH OF THE WATERS, and I'll be posting info about it on my facebook page once it's a bit closer to completion.
