You're working at an Aquarium which has a unique attraction. A real life mermaid. Other aquariums do get them from time to time. But at least around your area this is the only people be able to see for miles. Yesterday, you helped clean her up after some kid threw garbage in her tank. She offered you some of her food in exchange. Or at least you thought it was in exchange. You did some research and it turns out mermaids will often offer some food to the weakest member of their group.

So yeah, that was a bit of a blow to your masculinity. Today you decided to eat lunch by her tank. That way she can see that you're fully capable of hunting down your own food (just as long as it came pre-packaged and the barcode wasn't scratched.)

"You know, I did some research on you," you said between bites of turkey and swiss. You didn't know if she could understand you at not, but it was better than eating in silence. "I hear you guys are pretty smart."

You hauled herself a bit further out of the tank, her fishy breasts squishing under the weight of her torso. You weren't sure if she was interested, or just craning her neck towards the sent of your lunch. Her big gold eyes were locked on yours, but you could see her nose twitch a little. Her long tail swished through the water behind her and the pectoral fins where her hips would've been fluttered lazily against the wall of her tank.

"You want some?" You cut a slice off of your apple. Common green-scale mermaids like the one trying to snag your lunch were pretty omnivorous. Not to the point of some shark-maidens who'd literally eat anything that'd fit in their mouth, but their taste was at least as wide as a human's.

She sniffed the apple slice, licked it cautiously, and pulled her head away. Oh well, maybe she was more curious than hungry. You shrugged and chucked the little slice into a garbage can.

>Maybe you can find a toy or something for her to play with, the aquarium keeps some on hand for smarter animals that like to play
>Keep talking to her (write in: subject?)
>Just watch her swim for now.

"Stay right there, okay?" you said. You still had time on your lunch break, and you had a few ideas about how to kill the time with your new fishy friend.

The mermaid shot you a look. Either she could understand a word you said and was just drawn to your sudden movement or she was unsure where a tank-bound creature like herself would go and thus questioned why you'd need to tell her to stay right there. Great, you were being judged by a fish.

"'least I have knees," you muttered defensively. You knew the aquarium had a stash of various pool toys and things. Usually the otters used them, but they weren't actually labeled for any particular animal. It didn't take you long to find the storage locker.

You grabbed a few floating, stackable cups that you knew the otters like, a ball in case she felt like playing catch, and floating box with shapes in it. Maybe it was childish, but it was the best you could find on short notice.

You collected everything and trotted back to the mermaid's tank. By the time you arrived she was floating belly-up swimming lazy laps around her tank. You'd never really seen her from this angle before, you hadn't noticed the fish girl had abs.

Not ripped cheese graters, she was still a fish with a nice coating of insulating fat. But if she was a girl her tummy would be more than toned enough for a killer Instagram account. You could tell she was working with at least a six pack down there.

You shook yourself out of your temporary girlab-induced trace and set the collection of toys on the waterproof grating by the edge of her tank. "Hey," you picked up the ball and bounced it in your hand. "You play catch?"

She rolled over on her belly, dove slightly and broached at an angle near where you were standing. You couldn't tell if she understood what you were saying or just recognized the sound of your voice.

"Catch its..." you tossed the ball up and caught it again. "you know, catch."

She blinked at you, squinting a little. You had no idea if anything you said was getting through. It might be time for a practical demonstration. You lobbed the ball underhand, giving it just enough speed to meander through the air right at her. She followed the ball with those golden eyes of hers, only to wince as the ball hit her square on the nose and bounced off into the pool.

Right. It's probably hard to play catch underwater. "sorry!" you said, hoping your tone at least got your feelings accros.

The mermaid pushed off from the edge of her tank and crash dove so fast she left foam. For a second you thought you'd scared her away. Then she came rocketing up from the deep, hurling herself from the tank through momentum alone and snagging the ball with both hands. If that ball had been a seagull it would be lunch.

She smiled and swam over to you. She squinted and chucked the ball with both hands at you. Well, not really at you so much as in your general direction. You managed to catch it despite her lack of skill.

She started for the other end of her tank. She's barely gone ten feet before she stopped and looked at you. Clearly she though you were slow in the brainpan. She swam back to you, pointed at the ball then took off again.

>>
You took the hint and lobbed the ball to her. This time you were extra careful to throw it nice and soft, and you tried to aim near her without quite throwing it at her.

With more space to make a decision she was able to catch it this time. She darted to the side, her impressively developed lats flared as she snatched the ball out of the air with a diving save. Or... Tried to, anyway. The ball skidded through her fingers and skipped off accros the tank.

You saw her sigh and shake her head. She swam over to the ball and looked at you like you were the dumbest thing on two legs. She tucked the ball under her arm and swam back to you.

But instead of handing the ball back she chucked it back into the tank and darted after it. She caught it while it was still skipping off the surface and rolled onto her back to look at you. You could see hope on her face, hope that you understood, but not much.

She tossed the ball back to you and waited.

And then throw the ball skidding over the surface of the water, she wants ti catch it there
>>
"Okay, fetch," you said. You didn't really expect her to understand you, but you wanted to get her used to the sound of your voice. You chucked the ball toward the opposite end of the tank.

She took off like a rocket. Or a torpedo, that was probably more accurate. She dove slightly, only her dorsal fin slicing through the surface like a knife. You could barely see her through the choppy water, but she seemed see well enough. She piched up, broaching the surface at a sprint and snatching the ball from the air.

She smiled and swam back to you with the ball tucked under her arm. She swam up to the edge of the tank and chucked the ball to you.

The two of you played fetch until your watch beeped. Lunch break was over, back to work. You collected your stuff and started to leave when the mermaid tossed the ball back to you.

She looked upset, but understanding. You tossed the ball back to her and collected the rest of the toys. "see ya," you said with a wave.

You busied yourself with your work until you had a chance to chat. Luckily it didn't take long, today was a slow day and there weren't many teenagers around to cause trouble. Before long you had nothing to do but gossip with your coworkers about the firshgirl.

"Hey, Glenda." You sidled up the the rather brawny woman who was your nose more through inertia than anything. "What's up?"

She shrugged and stuffed her hands into the baggy pockets of her cargo shorts. "Nothing much, Anon. You got that puke cleaned up good."

You had to think about that. Oh, right the task she'd given you before you left the other day. "oh, thank."

"So," Glenda rocked on her heels. You could tell she was really bored too. "What's on yer mind?"

"You hear anything about the mermaid?" you asked.

"Who, Midori?" said Glenda.

"Midori?"

"Her name," said Glenda. "'cause she's a greenacale? Look, it feels weird to just call her 'the mermaid' ya know?"

"I guess," you admitted. Midori... You figured it was as good a name as any. "anyway you hear anything about her?"

"she likes the kids," said Glenda. "always smiles and waves at 'em. Other then that, nah. I hear Jenny has a story though."

(1/2)
>>
You knew Jenny. About everyone did, she was one of the divers who did regular maintenance on the tanks. You didn't really talk to her much, but you know she loved swimming. Neither you nor anyone you knew had ever seen her in anything but her swimsuit. You caught her coming in to work once, but even then she was obviously wearing her suit under her shorts.

You had to look around for a while to find her. She was sitting on the edge of a tropical fish exhibit with her long legs trailing into the warm water and her scuba gear resting beside her. "Hey, anon," she capped her water bottle and waved.

"Hey, Jenny." You settled into a squat beside her. She was still soaking wet and droplets coming off her swimsuit had left a puddle around her. You didn't dare sit down.

"Don't usually see you," she smiled at you. "'least without a few feet of water between us. What's up?"

"Not much," you said, being careful to keep your gaze respectfully above her collarbone. It was easier said than done, Jenny was thick like an athlete and her slick one price hid just enough of her figure to make it worse than if she was flat out naked. "You have a good day?"

She nodded and a drop of water fell off the tip of her nose. "Spent the whole day day in the water," she said with a happy smile. "so that's always a good start, you know?"

"Mm," you mumbled noncommittally. You were a strong enough swimmer, but you weren't a professional diver like Jenny was.

Jenny took a long swing from her water bottle and ran a hand through her sopping wet hair. She sighed with pleasure and wiped her mouth with the back of her damp hand. The futility of the gesture made her giggle. "Oh, I forgot! I was in the shark tank this morning and the black - tips kept trying to swim up for headpatts."

She smiled at the memory until the chub of her cheeks squished her eyes into a squint. "They're so cute. Like lil' sea doggos."

She kicked her feet in the warm water and hastily adjusted her swimsuit a bit where the hem had ridden up her hip. "You should join me some time. I'm a SCUBA instructor if you need to learn how to dive."

You do, actually. You're a strong enough swimmer, but you never learned how to scuba. Especially not at Jenny's level.

Jenny was about your age--younger, actually. You're pretty sure she's still solidly in her twenties--but you knew she was a skilled diver. You weren't really sure how skilled, as some of the stories about her had the air of fantasy about them. Still, learning to dive seemed like a great idea.

"I don't, actually," you said. "Dive, I mean. I'd love to learn though."

"Oh, it's super fun," said Jenny. "I'll bring my books over tomorrow so you can start studying." She paused and slowly retreated into herself. You could tell this wasn't the first time she'd mistaken polite conversation for genuine interests and overexposed herself. "I mean... If you want."

"I do, actually," you quickly reassured her. "It really sounds fun, and you seem like a great teacher."

Her face lit up like a searchlight. "Great! Yeah I'll bring my books. If I forget remind me, okay?"

"will do," you said. "Hey so I hear you've got a mermaid story?"

She nodded and shifted a bit to get comfy. "Yeah, it was really weird. I was cleaning her tank and she kept checking on me."

"Checking on you?" you said with genuine confusion.

"Yeah, like..." Jenny waved her hands around. "you know, hovering near me. She never got in the way but she was always there. She was really interested in my scuba gear."

"is that so odd?" you asked. "I thought a lot of the fish like the bubbles."

Jenny shook her head. "nah, she was interested in the rig, not the bubbles. And..." she bit her lip. "I swear she could tell it was something I was wearing. She kept going like this--" Jenny held an imaginary regulator to her lips.

"Huh," you said. Realizing a diver was a human with some special kit and not just a really oddly shaped fish was... something. You didn't know what it meant, but you sure it meant something. "You know, I played fetch with her today."

"You did?" Jenny glanced over at you in eager surprise. For a moment her eyes were as huge as her smile, then a moment later she mediated her expression a little. Maybe she was afraid of coming off as creepily over-interested, but you didn't mind. Playing fetch with a mermaid wasn't something you did every day. "I mean... uh... cool."

It was hard not to laugh at her puppy dog enthusiasm, even as short-lived as it was. "Yeah," you said. "Brought some of the spare otter toys up. I tried playing some catch with her, but..." you shrugged. "She was more interested in playing fetch. You should've seen her... had to spoon feed it to me."

"Spoon feed what?" Jenny scooted closer, rolling her weight onto the meat of her meaty thigh and leaning in closer. "Spoon feed what?"

"That... that she wanted to play catch," you explained. "Had to mime it all out... she looked at me like I was the dumbest thing on two legs."

Jenny laughed so hard she snorted. "Oh... oh I wish I'd been there to see that. I had no idea she was so sassy!"

"Wasn't... exactly the word I'd use," you said. "She was more adorable. Like a puppy or something."

"Oh man..." Jenny shook her head. "Man, I'm so jealous, that sounds like the cutest thing!" Before she could say more her big expensive diving watch chirped at her. "What? Oh dang." She looked at you with a wounded expression. "Sorry, I gotta get back to work. See you around?"

"Y-yeah." You stuttered a little as she pulled her legs out of the water and stood up. Something about the way water ran in rivers down her legs was mesmerizing. Also, seeing all the muscle and fat squeezed into her almost-but-not-quite-overthicc body was... something else. She smiled at you, picking up her scuba gear with one hand and adjusting the butt of her swimsuit with the other. That was an image that'd stick with you.

You tried not to think about it too hard though. You had the rest of the day to get through. You still didn't have much to do, but it was enough to keep your mind occupied until the end of the day. You swung by Midori's tank on the way out, and as you were passing by the submerged window you heard a muffled bang on the glass. You looked over in time to see Midori tap her hand against the glass again and smile when she realized she'd gotten your attention.

She waved at you, then pulled her hands back through her vast mane of hair until she'd grouped it all into one bundle at the base of her skull. Then she did it again, then a third time. On the fourth she held her hands behind her head and looked at you expectantly.

"Just a minute," you said, holding up a few fingers. You weren't sure if she could even hear you through the glass, let along understand you. But saying nothing just felt wrong. You jogged up the stairs to get to the tank-top access. To no suprise Midori was waiting for you there. She'd hauled herself half-up on the grated step inside the tank. Her breasts--which it had to be said, were almost shockingly big for how round and plump they were--were piled up beneath her like pillows with her arms folded around them like the walls of a castle. Her long hair flowed down her back and into the tank.

"Hey, Midori." You said to her. She seemed to perk up a little when you said her name, her big golden eyes squinting at you. She smiled and clapped her hands together. You tried not to notice how certain parts of her fishy anatomy jiggled, but it was hard. "Got something in your hair?" You crouched down next to her and she obligingly placed her head on your lap. You ran your hands through her mane, but it didn't look like anything was stuck in it.

"Uh... ponytail maybe?" You asked her. You were starting to wish you knew how to braid hair. Maybe that's what she wants. "Like this?" You grabbed her hair and gathered it behind her head. She nodded, careful not to tear her own hear out. "Okay, Okay..." you looked around for something to tie it back with. Luckily the aquarium was a public place frequented by at least one woman. Where there were women, there were hair elastics. And where there were hair elastics, there were *more* hair elastics. The darn things bred fast as hell. "Here," you found one not too far away and rinsed it off in the tank. "this okay?"

Midori sniffed it briefly, then her face lit up in a smile. She closed her eyes and rested her head on your lap while you tied her hair back in a ponytail.

"There, all done." You tousled the hair on top of her head. You could feel her purring as she slipped down into the water and darted around the faux-coral breaking up her tank. After a few laps she surfaced again and smiled. It seems you made a good impression. With that taken care of, you said your goodbyes and headed home.

You did a quick workout when you got home--couldn't have Midori thinking you're a weakling, and now that you think about it you wanted to impress Jenny too. After you'd showed and made yourself some dinner, you settled down in your comfiest chair in front of your computer.

I kinda really enjoy the idea of someone dead-set on discovering leprechauns or something, and using mermaids as their argument that they might not be crazy.

>Whether there are any people who have made a career of training a mermaid to help them in their work. ("Why yes, I would LOVE to pay ten times more for this fish since a mermaid caught it!")
If mermaids are generally considered just intelligent fish, I can see a personal account from someone who works closely with them giving some hints on whether that's true or not.
>>
>>3786069
Well, we both know the main reason for the anatomy but there's some fun to be had regardless. Like at what point does the skeletal structure differ from humans. Do mermaids lay eggs or are they live bearers(like guppies and platties)? Do they mate for life? What is their life expectancy?
>>
>>3786065
>Look up how they communicate. Also anatomy.
Nobody's been able to decipher mermaid communications. The most studied species is a kind of Caribbean shark maiden known for being very sociable and chatty. They were happy to talk to researchers in exchange for food (first chum, later cheeseburgers) and more of their song is recorded than any other. Unfortunately all attempts to decipher it have failed.The leading theory is that the sharks were saying gibberish to keep their meal tickets coming, but some researchers who've worked directly with the sharks think it's more likely the sharks were deliberately attempting to screw with the researchers. It's apparently the kind of thing they find funny.

Orca Maidens are more studied. We know they have an established communication protocol that nearly all their songs follow ("Sender, Intended Recipient, content of message") but nobody's been able to understand more than a few "words", and the orcas ignore artifically produced songs.

>Anatomy
Uniformly across species mermaids bear live young and nurse them for a time. Some species of shark practice adelphophagy though. Bony mermaids have skeletons similar to humans from the hips up, though more adapted to moving along the long-axis than short-axis. (i.e. looking "up" instead of "forward".) The construction of the tail depends on species. Some have horizontally aligned flukes, while others have vertically aligned tails. Nearly all have a set of pectoral fins where you'd expect their hips to be. Shark maidens lack bony skeletons and instead have cartilage in its place.

>Male Mermaids
Nobody has a good answer to this question. Some claim the males are just visually similar the females, and thus many observed males were erroneously recorded as females. Others suspect the mermaids are born male and transition to female later in life like the Barramundi, while still others believe mermaids are an all-female species like Amazon Mollys that use the males of other species to stimulate egg production.

(QM's note, those are both real species. Also, I left this vague because its a really prickly question without any good answers. I'd love to hear your thoughts on it though)

>Human mermaid interaction
Interaction between species has been limited by each species inability to survive in the other's realm. Even in places where humans were aware of mermaids, they generally didn't interact at any length. There's been claims of mermaids trained/partnering with humans to accomplish certain tasks, but these are regarded as outliers at best and urban legends at worst.

>Life Expectancy
Depends on the species. Midori's species usually lives to be 50 or 60 in the wild, though proper medical care and not having to hunt for food could stretch that to 80 or 90. Some species can live for longer. Some species are hypothesized to die only when they are killed.

Look up communication between mermaids. If we can't replicate their own brand of speech then maybe we can go the sign language route like Koko the gorilla instead.

You came in early the next morning, your head still swimming from all the research you'd done the last night. You were just putting your things in your locker when Jenny walked up to you.

She was wearing a cardigan over her trademark overstuffed swimsuit, so you assumed she'd just gotten in. She had a few beaten-up and dog-eared books clutched to her chest, and you could see the muscles in her thick thighs clench as she awkwardly shifted her weight from one foot to the other. "Hey, Ian," she said, looking past you like she was reading off an invisible teleprompter.

"Hey, Jenny." You smiled at her. For a girl so hot she seemed terribly nervous. Of course, she was trying to rope someone into her rather particular hobby. You could see the tension on her face. She was sticking her neck out, hoping she hadn't misread polite conversation for serious interest.

"So, I was wondering if you're still interested in learning to dive," She cradled the books against her tight tummy. You'd never seen her without her one-piece, but you were sure she could at least compete with Midori in the girl-abs theater. "I brought my books if you want to borrow them. You know, get the book learning so I can teach you the practical stuff."

> "I'm... not really that interested, sorry."
> "Sure! I'm not sure when I'll have time to dive with you, though."

There's not many accounts period, and essentially all the reputable accounts have the mermaids acting in what could reasonably be considered self defense. (Either of themselves or of a pup.)

"Sure!" You were quick to reassure her. You'd been in her place before, having to stick your neck out and see if someone really was interested in your hobbies or was just feigning interest out of politeness. It was never fun, and you got the impression Jenny'd been rejected more times than she'd care to admit. "Yeah, that sounds like a ton of fun, I'd love to."

"Yay!" She jumped with joy. All her jiggly bits jiggled, but less than you'd expected. She must be in better shape than you thought, though given her legs that should've been obvious. "Okay, start with this one," she handed you a hardcover book. "But this one has some really good tips. I think this one has some cool stories if you want to do advanced stuff, but you don't need to read it unless you're bored."

"Advanced stuff?" you asked. You didn't really know what kind of diving Jenny did. Well, you knew she was a diving instructor and apparently pretty experienced. But beyond that? "Stuff you've done?"

"Some of it, yeah," Jenny rocked on her heels, her hips swaying in a more unambiguously happy motion. "That book really got me into wreck diving."

"You've dove wrecks?" you asked her. From what little you knew of scuba diving you thought that was a pretty advanced course.

"Oh, whenever I can," she said with a huge smile. "There's not a lot around here, but it's super fun. Anyway..." she glanced at the chunky dive watch on her wrist. "I gotta hit the pool. Got a new hire I gotta qual."

"Good luck!" You waved at her as she trotted off. Her sweater was just short enough to show off her bouncing butt when she walked. You had to say, Jenny was hot. Not... like... *fish* hot, but hot. You're not sure what kind of a person thinking that made you.

You her bubbly swimsuit-clad butt out of your mind as much as anything that round could ever truly leave your mind. You had work to do, and more importantly you had a fish to impress. You went through your duties on autopilot, stopping briefly to help some kids pet stingrays at the petting tank. Then it was lunch and time to fiddle around with your fishy friend.

You'd left her some toys and you were eager to see which she'd enjoyed the most. But when you walked up to the edge of the tank Midori looked more upset than anything. She was floating on her back, her face scrunched up in frustration as she smashed a set of floating plastic cups together.

As soon as she spotted you she swam over. As a demonstration, she placed the medium-sized purple cup into the big blue cup. It fit just fine. But when she tried to add the small red cup it just wouldn't fit. She smashed it together a few times, glared at you, then threw the small red one at you in a huff.

*Bonk* the little red cup bounced off your head. You'd tried to dodge it, you really had. But Midori had an arm on her. Actually, she had more muscle definition than you did, you could clearly see where her deltoid folded into her bicep and where her tris gently perturbed the backside of her arm. And the less said about her lats the better. You didn't want to know how much Midori could bench. Except you really, really did. "Ow! Okay, okay," you held up your hands in surrender.

Midori pouted, folding her arms with what you swore was a huff and pointedly looking away from you. You noticed that she still had her hair in the long, flowing ponytail you'd helped her do the other day.

"Look," you knelt down by the side of the pool and collected all the cups. "You just..." you tried to stack them but ran into the same problem. You tried every order you could think of, but the cups just wouldn't stack. Maybe they were in that dusty corner of the storage room for a reason. "Okay... I think I gave you unstackable cups."

Midori glowered at you from across the tank. The way she looked at you you'd think you were the dumbest thing on two legs. She shook her head and dove underwater. You watched her through the ripples while she swam a few laps before surfacing again and rolling onto her back. She spread her arms out wide, sunning herself from the skylight over her tank.

With her light-colored belly exposed, it was hard not to notice her... well... everything. Her waist was almost as slender as Jenny's with just the slightest hint of a divot for her belly button. Her abs were well defined even under her insulating blubber, and with her arms spread wide you could see her... um... you know... those muscles on her sides kinda beside and above her abs?

You couldn't remember their name, and it was hard to think when you couldn't look at them without also staring at her big stonkin' fishtits. They were big and round but surprisingly full for their size. Midori clearly didn't need any seashells to cover her C-shells. She didn't have nipples though, just slightly darker patches of fishskin. You weren't sure what to make of that.

I figured OP copied the situation from the gif and just got mixed up in his wording. The actual story behind the gif is that they were testing otters' problem solving skills and so decided to give them stackable cups and see how long it took them to do it right. The otter in the gif had the order mixed up but I believe it got it eventually.
That or OP didn't get mixed up and I'm being a colossal faggot. Either theory is equally valid.

Well crap. You'd just angered the fish. Or... at least annoyed the fish. Which wouldn't have bothered you so much except... well... the fish was hot. As hot as a fish could be, really. You hadn't been all that into fit chicks, but watching the way her abs clenched when she twisted at the waist and dived... you were starting to really see the appeal. Oh, and also the big fishtits.

Point is, you couldn't bear to have Midori mad at you. Luckily, the ball you'd given her wasn't far from you. You had to lean way out, but you were able to snag it with your foot and get it bobbing towards you. "Hey, Midori," you said, tossing the ball in the air and catching it. "You want to play more fetch?" You mimed the action to her.

She looked at you from the other side of the tank and shook her head. Either she wasn't in the mood or she was still upset about the cups. She dove for the bottom of her tank and started swimming around the faux-coral by herself.

You sighed and settled back to enjoy your lunch. At least you could watch her swim. She didn't swim like any person you'd ever seen. Her tail slashed from side to side, the hips on her fins twitching like the fins on a rocket. She was fast too, fast but graceful and agile as she darted through the rocks.

You idly hummed to yourself, singing along to a wordless tune in your head. Then you had an idea. Mermaids communicated through songs, right? Songs that carried better through water than air. Maybe she'd understand you if you sang underwater. Or... if not understand you, at least realize that you were trying to talk to her.

You took a deep breath and stuck your head into her tank. The water was warm and not salty enough to sting your eyes. You started to sing.

It was about then that you remembered you had lungs and not gills, and that your body was probably like that for a reason. You pulled your head out of the water, sputtering and coughing up water. In the deepest part of the tank Midori looked at you with an expression of utter confusion.

She clearly found what you'd just done so utterly bizarre there wasn't any room in her fishy mind to be upset at you over the cups anymore. So... win?

Okay... that was a mistake. In your defense, you'd never tried to *sing* underwater before. You just didn't have the technique down to do it without getting water place water does not want to be. That and... well, you'd ended up staring right at her big fishtits, which would through any man or lesbian off their game.

Maybe with practice you could get the technique down, but... That was an adventure for another time. You ran your hand through your damp hair and tried to finish your lunch in peace. Midori surfaced near you and squinted at you with obvious concern. After a while though, she seemed satisfied and went back to swimming laps around her tank.

She really was beautiful. You know, as fish went. Her long tail flowed like an evening gown and her hair flared behind her like an oil slick. It looked pretty in a ponytail. Too bad you didn't know how to braid hair, otherwise you'd offer to braid it for her.

You tried to offer to play a few more times, but she didn't seem interested. You finished up your lunch and bid her goodbye while you went back to your actual job. You did manage to find an actual set of properly stacking cups though, and you made sure to drop them off for her.

You'd never seen a fish look so suspicious, but eventually Midori took them. After testing that they did indeed fit she smiled at you and rolled onto her back to play. A part of you wondered if getting so much joy out of simple stacking cups was a sign of limited intelligence. Of course, it could just mean she was a sweetheart who found joy in all the little things.

You were about to leave when Jenny came running over. As usual she was soaking wet and water ran in rivers down her hips and thighs. Her suit less so, it was about as soaked as it could get. "Oh hey, Ian!" She slid to a stop and smiled at you.

"Hey, Jenny," you said, trying to ignore the way her hips swooshed from side-to-side while she waited nervously. A girl that hot shouldn't be that timid. "What's up?"

"I was just, ah... I was gonna hit the pool after work." Why a girl who worked as a professional diver would go swimming in her down time was beyond you. Maybe it was just an excuse to wear that swimsuit more. You know if you had an ass like Jenny's you'd jump at any excuse. "I was... do you wanna come? I mean... I could give you some lessons, make sure you have the technique for diving and... um... stuff..." she pursed her lips and looked a you expectantly.

"You know, not everyone wears swimsuits as clothes." You said, trying not to look at... well... any part of Jenny's body that was covered by her swimsuit, or any part that wasn't. You settled on looking into her big sea-blue eyes and doughy smile. Honestly, that was probably more dangerous than staring at her butt, but you were locked in now. "I don't have any trunks on me."

"Oh," she wilted a little. She didn't seem upset, just... disappointed. At you, at herself, at the situation in general, you couldn't tell. But Jenny was sad, and this could not stand.

"I'll have to swing by my place," you added quickly. "Pick up my trunks. But yeah, I'm in. That sounds like fun."

She brightened up again. "Oh, great! Yeah..." she nodded to herself. "Yeah, that's... We have a pool here for diver training and stuff, but if you've gotta leave anyway--" she coughed and cut herself off. "Um... what I mean is that if you've gotta leave and come back we'll probably be here late. I could dip over to my place and grab some dinner for after?"

She shrugged, rocking on her heels while she waited for your answer. "I'm a pretty mean cook, you know."

"Yeah, that sounds fun," you said. You liked hanging out with Jenny. Hot body or no she was a sweet girl, and you could tell she was a little starved for friends outside of work. How someone with thighs like that didn't have boys falling over themselves to accompany her everywhere was a mystery to you. "I could give you a ride if you want, save you the trip."

"Really?" She beamed, bouncing up on the balls of her feet like she was seal snatching a fish from the air. "Thanks, Ian. That'd be great. Let me get my shoes." She trotted over to her locker and, after toweling herself off a little, pulled on a pair of beaten-up high-tops. She didn't even bother putting anything else on, even though you swore you saw a pair of jean cutoffs wadded up with her other stuff. "This is okay, right?"

"Huh?" You blinked. "Oh, yeah. Sure." No point in her getting gussied up for a drive to your place. It wasn't like you were taking her on a date or something. Unless... would having Jenny wear just her swimsuit make it more like a date? Whatever the case the moment's passed. You threw your stuff in your backpack and motioned for her to follow you out to your car.

It was... a car. That was all you could say about it. Not a slick sports-rod that got panties wet and skirts dropping. Not a manly 4x4 with mud caked over the wheel wells. Not even some beaten-up old rust-bucket with character. Your car was just... *a car*. Three thousand pounds of extruded automotive product pressed into the same kinda-sleek kinda-stylish shape as every other econobox on the market. You darted over to open the door for Jenny.

"Aw," She blushed a little and slid into the passanger's seat. "Thanks, Ian."

You shrugged Mama didn't raise no cretin. "So," you settled into your seat and checked your mirrors. The parking lot was pretty empty by now, but you wanted to make sure Jenny thought you were a safe driver. "I did something dumb today."

"Oh?" She fiddled with her seat-belt. She might not have the rack of fishtits, but she had enough of a chest for the belt to cut between her breasts like a knife through soft, supple butter. "What?"

"Well, I was watching Midori," you said. "I figured I'd try and sing to her. You know, like another mermaid."

Jenny stifled a giggle. She could tell you had more to say, but she was clearly enjoying herself already. "And?"

"So... I stuck my head in the water," you said. "But... I dunno, maybe it was because of the angle but I just ended up swallowing water."

Jenny snorted and smiled at you. "Hah! Maybe I shouldn't teach you to dive!" After a second she got nervous and hastily continued. "I... I mean, I'm joking. I really want to teach you if you're still interested."
>>
"I am," you said, waiting at a red light. It was kinda nice having someone to talk to on the ride home, especially someone as sweet as Jenny. You figured you should make the most of it.

So... looks like two votes for asking about her swimsuit and two NOT wanting to ask... gonna keep votes open until you decide.

This, but imagine the smell.

>Why she loves diving so much
>why she doesn't have a boyfriend

Do not talk about the swimsuit, will make her subcouncious about it
>>
>>3790094
Don't imagine the smell from our avatar's POV, btw, just in general.
>>
>>3790103
The ass water from her damp swimsuit is soaking up the car seat as we speak
>>
In case it wasn't clear, she has several swimsuits. It's not like she's always wearing the exact same one. She's just been wearing the same general style (dark-colored competition one-piece) every time you've seen her.
>>
You wanted to ask about her swimsuit. You really really did. But... that was a conversation for another time. "You're really into diving, huh?" you asked Jenny.

"Oh yeah!" Jenny beamed. "Like... I can't do a lot of the really fun stuff at work, but... man, I love it."

You chuckled. "Yeah, I kinda guessed. Why do you like it so much?"

"There's a whole world down there," Jenny waved generally towards the ocean. "A world that's so alien... so full of life that we're only just scratching the surface of." She twisted to look at you. Her eyes were wide and dreamy. She was clearly over the moon just to have a captive audience for her pet hobby. "Did you know there's almost two thousand new marine species discovered each year? Each year!"

She bounced in her chair, giddy with excitement. "And anyone can be part of it! You know how hard astronauts train, just to look for... like... little alien bacteria and stuff? Anyone can be a diver and we get to see way cooler stuff."

You couldn't help but be draw in by her sheer enthusiasm. She was like a puppy with this stuff, falling over herself to gush about her chosen hobby. You wanted to reach over and fluff her hair a little, but you concentrated on driving for now.

"I'm really glad you're letting me teach you," she said with a big dopey grin.

"I'm glad I have you as a teacher," you said, turning into your driveway.

how's our house?
if it's organized and not a mess, invite her in
if it is a mess just run there and grab what we need

on the way back comment on the boyfriend

"so do you have many friends that dive with you? or...a boyfriend?"

if she says she doesn't have one, get confused and ask how a fun girl like her doesn't have one
after she answers we affer to dive together after she teaches us

>>
>>3790127
Your place isn't *messy*, but it's not NOT messy. Your bed's not made and you could probably do with a good sweep, but it's not like there's garbage everywhere.
>>
Honestly, not sure why we would invite her in in the first place? We'll be here for like two minutes, why make her go through the trouble of getting out and then immediately back in again?
It'd be another matter if we were going to leave her in the car for any length of time, or this was the end of a date instead of a pitstop at the beginning, but all we're doing here is grabbing our trunks so we can get to the place we're actually headed for.
>>
>>3790139
It's good then, take her in, we can compare apartments with her later
>>
>>3790162
I kinda figured the same, but I didn't want to railroad you. I'd need to call a vote anyways to see what ya'll wanted to talk with her about on the way back, so adding an extra option was easy.
>>
>>3790117
>Just run in and get your trunks. (Also, subject of discussion on the way back?)
Did we already ask her what got her into diving?
>>
Hey, anons. Sorry I gotta call it here for now. Talk among yourselves, bring up things you want to do while swimming with Jenny or want to make sure you have on hand when you hang out with Midori.
>>
>>3790243
I was thinking, how about a white board and a marker? She can draw and we can too to communicate.

Get some diving tips with Jenny when we are at the pool
>>
>>3790246
>a white board and a marker?
How would that work while we are underwater though?
>>
>>3790259
Not putting it underwater obviously, at the side of the tank
But maybe there is a water proof version of it?
>>
>>3790243
-Hair brush (preferably one meant for thick hair)
-Whiteboard with colored markers (Won't get ruined if she splashes it, she might enjoy drawing, and if she's smart enough could be used to show what she wants without charades)
-Stackable cups that... actually stack. Maybe a set that's bigger than the first one, as an apology.
>>
>>3791074
>Stackable cups that... actually stack
Didn't we already find them though? Also maybe learn how to make her hair into something other than a ponytail?
>>
>>3791074
>>3791301
Yeah, we already gave actual stackable cups. OP trolled the smartasses.

"You wanna come in?" you asked Jenny.

"Hmm?" She seemed honestly if pleasantly surprised by the invitation. Her cheeks flushed a shade and she shook her head. "No, that's okay. Thanks though."

"No problem." you ducked into your place just long enough to grab a towel and set of trunks. The next stage of your drive was mostly taken up by Jenny giving you directions to her place, so you weren't able to talk to her much. Her place wasn't far from yours and it wasn't anything out of the ordinary. Just one of any number of apartment complexes in the city. You didn't know what you were expecting, but it certainly wasn't something so plain.

"Be right back," Jenny slid out of the passenger seat with startling grace and jogged up a flight of stairs to her apartment. You... you had to admit, watching her run from behind had a certain appeal to it. But you tried not to linger on her jiggles, you were going to be sharing a pool with her soon, you needed to be on your game. A few minutes later she re-emerged with a bag full of groceries resting in the crook of her absurdly curvy hip. She waved at you and you popped the trunk for her. "There we go," she said, joining you in the passenger seat. "I'm excited."

"For swimming?" You asked, navigating out of her parking lot, "Or dinner?"

"A bit of both," she said."I'm not a bad cook you know."

"Well, we'll see about that," you said with a teasing smile. "Hey, Jenny... You have any friends you dive with? I mean... outside of work?"

She shrugged, adjusting her seat-belt so it didn't quite cleave through her... well, cleavage. "A few, yeah. I don't have a boyfriend if that's what you're asking." She blushed and fiddled with the hem of her swimsuit.

>Drop the subject.

>>
You wanted to ask. You really really wanted to. But the better part of you grabbed the wheel at the last minute and you decided to drop the subject. You're sure it'd come out in time if you spent enough time with Jenny. Either because she'd tell you or you'd figure out for yourself why nobody wanted to get with a thicc-thighed swimchick like her. Maybe it was the swimsuit?

"That's, um..." you coughed and changed the subject. "Hey, do you know how to braid hair?"

She gave you a sideways look. "I guess a little, why?"

"Midori," you said. "She came up to me the other day. I think she noticed how many guests wear ponytails and... well, she asked for one. I think."

"Really?" Jenny leaned over as far as the seatbelt would allow, positively beaming at you. "I didn't know she could... wow, that's so cool!"

You laughed despite herself. Something about Jenny's puppy-dog enthusiasm was infectious. She was smiling so much she almost had to squint. "Yeah, anyway, I figured maybe she'd like it if someone braided her hair."

"Yeah," Jenny nodded. "Yeah, I can totally teach you." She nodded again as the two of you pulled back into the aquarium. It was locked up now, but both of you had keys. "Let me put the stuff in the break room fridge," said Jenny. "Meet you in the pool?"

"Which..."

"The big one in the back," said Jenny. "The one we use for diving practice, remember?"

You nodded. You hadn't gone back there much. Most of the aquarium's tanks were full of fish, but it was useful to have a spare pool in case you need to swap things around or whatever. "Right, I'll see you there." It didn't take you long to get to the pool. It was dark, with the pool's underwater lighting dominating the room. You could see out into the glittering city lights and there was just enough warm ambiance from exit signs and walkway under-lighting to make the whole place feel... a little romantic.

You'd barely gotten in the water when Jenny came sashaying out to join you. Perks of always wearing a swimsuit, you guessed. She didn't have to change. "Thanks for coming, Ian," she said. She sat on the edge of the pool, then arched her butt forward so she slid gracefully into the water and only kinda displayed all her shocking collection of curves. "It's nice out tonight, isn't it?"

She swam over to you. You were still in the shallower end, so the water just lapped at the narrowest part of her belly when she stood.

>What do?
>>
>>3791822
>What do?
Start trying to learn how to dive and shit
>>
>>3791822
"It is quite nice isn't it, the company helps too"

Don't wait for her to answer and start swimming

"Let's warm up a little"


Then we ca do dive stuff later

>>3791822
Warm up a bit you do not want a sudden muscle cramp because you did not stretch.

>>3790117
>A world that's so alien... so full of life that we're only just scratching the surface of.

Man the paths the quest could go anywhere from that one line. It can range from rival exhibitions, sabnautica style exploration, social and mermaid fluff, maintaining exotic animals, mermaid conspiracies, and maybe hidden mythology.

Sorry, anons. Got roped into things since it's such a nice holiday.

Okay, sorry that took so long! Back for a bit
- - - -

You started warming up, stretching as best you could remember this late at night in a dark pool with a gorgeous girl swimming around you. Jenny was clearly pleased with your focus and started warming up too. Seeing her flexible little body in her tight little swimsuit did... things to you. Made thoughts you weren't proud of pop into your mind.

"Hey, Ian?" Jenny kicked off the edge of the pool and coasted towards you. "Thanks." She bit her lip, her cheeks were flush as she slowly came to a stop. "It's really nice hanging out with you, we should do it more often."

"Well... we will be," you said sheepishly. "You're still up to teach me to dive, right?"

Her blush deepened. "Yeah, but... I mean..." she shook her head and dove under the surface only to come back up for air a few moments later. "Would you believe I didn't have a lot of friends growing up?" She shrugged and floated on her back. "I was always that weird fish girl. And then when puberty hit..." she kicked her long, gorgeous legs. "I was still that weird fish girl, but some girls were jealous and some guys just saw a nice pair of hips and a hole, you know?"

She shrugged, closing her eyes as she floated in the pool. "You're a nice guy, Ian. I mean it." She laughed and splashed at nothing in particular. "I hope we're friends."

>Yeah, we're friends.
>Um... you're teaching me to dive, that's really it.

She's cute, but she needs social interaction and someone to joke around with more than she needs to get laid.

Also, I really don't want to crush her feelings if we start cheating on her with a literal fish after she finally managed to get a boyfriend.

QM mentioned a possibly side quest where we can play as a new MC so Jenny can have her own husbando
>>
>>3792659
Actually, I was thinking of a side quest as Jenny, not as another Mc who could date her.
>>
>>3792779
Oh, my bad. Sorry QM.
>>
"Yeah, we're friends," you said. You put just enough stress on the last word to make sure she didn't think you were trying to come onto her. It wasn't... necessarily that you couldn't see yourself going further. She was cute after all, but you could tell she needed social interaction and someone to joke around with more than she needs to get laid. Besides... on the first date?

"Oh, good," Jenny smiled and settled back into the water. She rode low, her well-toned body offering little in the way of buoyancy. "Just friends."

"Yeah," you said, swimming in circles around her. "You know, sometimes guys try and move on me as soon as we're alone."

"Really?" you said with what you hoped wasn't obviously feigned surprise. With legs like that you'd be lying if the thought hadn't crossed your mind. "No..."

"Yeah," Jenny shrugged. "I don't... I mean... this sounds really vain, but I know what I'm working with." She ran her hands down her flanks and glanced up at the ceiling. "Still... you know... it's nice that you didn't. Good to have a friend, ya know?" She rolled onto her belly and managed to get her feet under her. "You're one of the good ones, yeah?"

"I hope so." You said. The two of you swam for... who knows, maybe half an hour? You were a pretty strong swimmer yourself, but nothing like Jenny. That girl was like a rocket underwater, and she never seemed to get tired. After a while the two of you regrouped by the pool side. You were exhausted and panting for breath, but she seemed energized by the activity. Her whole face was flush and she was smiling like a school girl.

"So," she tugged at the front of her swimsuit. Her boobs weren't quite falling out, but she was showing a hair more cleavage than when you'd started. "You know Midori, right?"

>Yeah, what happened? (This will trigger a mini-side-quest. Jenny will tell Ian a story that you will play through as Jenny)

"Do I ever," you said with a smile. "why, what happened?"

Jenny chuckled. "so there I was..."
- - - -
So there you were, diving in Midori's tank for some routine maintenance and inspection. You had your full diving rig on over your swimsuit: air tank on your back, weights around your waist and a belt of brightly colored tools and flashlights to get your work done.

Long story short, you must have looked very strange to a fish. You were brightly colored and spewing bubbles from your regulator. You were used to fish being interested in the odd visitor to their tank, but this was different.

Midori was swimming alongside you. She wasn't crowding you and seemed to be taking pains not to get in your way, but she was still clearly observing you.

More accurately she was clearly observing your tits.

You'd... Never been the busty one of your friends. Even when you finally did hit puberty all your curves developed below the belt. It's not that you minded being small around the boobs, but...

Well... There was no graceful way to say it... The fish was stacked. Midori's boobs were the perfect set of comic book chest balloons, and surrounded by water she didn't even have to worry about sagging or back pain.

You weren't jealous of course. You just saw what she had going on and wished on some level you could have it.

Wait, that's jealousy isn't it. Well it would help if Midori wasn't staring so pointedly!

How DARE she? We are Jenny, she who instills a sickness for the thickness in the hearts of all straight-shooting men! Clearly we must challenge her to a duel of cup stacking!

>>3793616
Abs, obviously. Not to say that tits are inferior, but you gotta have at least those upper abdominals showing.
>>
>>3793594
>>you're ahead of schedule anyway, you could humor her for a bit.

>>3793594
>>you're ahead of schedule anyway, you could humor her for a bit.
>>3793616
Fishtits obviously.
>>
You sighed, something that was much easier said than done while using scuba gear. But you were an experienced enough diver that the gesture of mild exasperation was second nature to you.

You had to admit you were a little... Well, touchy over Midori's big fishtits, but it really wasn't her fault. The two of you weren't even the same species. At least she didn't have thighs like you did.

You rolled over to face her. You got a good look at her tummy in this light. Fish had abs. Not... Not that she really held a candle to your belly of course, but her muscles weren't hidden under a swimsuit.

Midori smiled when you gave her attention. She put her hands against her ribs like a living underwire and wrapped her palms up over her fishtits. She only barely managed to cover the faintly darker spots where her nipples should be before she ran out of hand.

She looked at you, then her milktanks, then back to you. She gave herself a little squeeze and looked at you hopefully

>nope! Nope, you're not getting tit envy from a frigging fish. Just get back to work.
>maybe... Does she want you to feel them?

>>3793692
This is a brief pov shift to Jenny, who's not half as blessed in the boobs as Midori is. Anon has been voting along the lines of her being a little touchy about her comparative flatness
>>
>>3793657
>nod, but wait for her to make the next move. She's trying to tell you something, but what?
Mybe point and grab your butt to prove your bigger some where eils
>>
Nope. No, this is not happening. You are not getting boob envy toward a frigging fish. You're not even the same species! You don't even live in the same environment! If she had to carry those gozonkas around for one day without having buoyancy to support the weight she'd be begging for a nice svelte chest like yours.

Of course, she didn't live on the surface. She did have water around her to support her massive milktanks. She was perfectly and beautifully adapted to her environment, just like you were better suited to yours. Sure, you were still a little jealous, but you were starting to see the wonder of nature.

You flashed her an OK gesture and mimed feeling up your own breasts. You at least wanted her to know you understood her. You turned back to your work only for Midori to tap you on the shoulder.

She repeated the same gesture, forming a bra from her hands and gently squeezing her breasts. She gave you a look like she hoped you understood her *this time* then reached for your chest.

>BAD TOUCH! BAD TOUCH!
>you're curious now, she seems like she's trying to communicate, not just cop a feel.

This.

>you're curious now, she seems like she's trying to communicate, not just cop a feel.

Let's set a precedent for the mermaid to be touchy with the MC]
>>
You doubted she was just trying to cop a feel, so you humored her. You let her reach for your chest and tried to keep still.

She frowned as the harness of your diving rig got in the way, but her exploring fingers finally managed to work down to your swimsuit. She awkwardly managed to cup your beasts in her hands and shot you a confused look when she felt a certain part of your anatomy that she was obviously lacking.

You weren't used to having your tits fondled by humans or fish, but Midori seemed like she was up to something. She squished her hands against you and dragged them all over your chest. It was clear that she was trying to get a point across, but the straps of your tank and buoyancy control vest made it hard.

Do you have a plan to confirm this?
>>
>>3793767
>you got the message. She's trying to say... (write in)
That we look a little too small for our age. From a mermaid's point of view such a small chest on an adult is probably really, really weird. It would probably only happen in cases of severe malnutrition, so maybe she's concerned for our safety.
That or we're the mermaid A-cup equivalent and she's just shocked an adult could even have such pitiful funbags.
>>
>>3793767
>surface and ditch your air. You're a good enough free diver.
>>
>>3793782
>>3793785
She was interested in breasts before she found out about nipples.
Maybe it's something about diving clothes?
>>3793786
Her breasts are covered in scales, right QM?
>>
>>3793785
You don't have your phone with you. You left it in your locker so you don't have to worry about it getting wet while you're diving.

Also, mermaids nurse their young, she's familiar with the purpose of tits.
>>
>>3793799
Yeah, her whole body is covered with the same sort of flesh.
>>
Enough of you are on the right track that I'll give it to you. Writing!
>>
You didn't understand what she was trying to say. Was she just surprised at how small your boobs were? You were a ways from flat but you couldn't compare to her big fishtits. Maybe to her you *were* that flat. Maybe she was worried about you. She thought you were underfed?

No, no that didn't make sense. She saw people all the time through the walls of her tank. You were no tittymonster but you were bigger that at least a reasonable proportion of the aquarium's visitors. Besides she looked more questioning than worried.

Maybe she was confused by your nipples? She didn't have any, and having your tits fondled so throughly was doing certain things to certain parts. But you discarded that idea too. She'd been interested in your chest before she'd ever touched you and you'd made very sure your swimsuit didn't show any pokies.

So what then? You didn't know why she found your boobs so interesting. You were wearing a swimsuit, it wasn't like you had your tits... Out... Like her...

Duh! How could you be so stupid! You held up a finger for her to wait and made for the surface. You shrugged off your gear and took a deep breath before diving again. This time without your harness in the way it was easy for you to pull your suit away from your body.

You waved your hand over the garmet. Midori smiled and clapped her hands. You were right, she was curious why you were covering your boobs. She might even want a top of her own!

- - - -

You listened to Jenny finish her story and hoped you hadn't been too interested in the parts where she talked about tits (fish or otherwise) being fondled. "She wants a swimsuit?" you asked.

"I think," said Jenny. "I mean, it's a good guess, right?"

You nodded and added that to the list of things you'd have to get for your new fishy friend.

"If she wants a swimsuit maybe we should get her one," you said. Now that you really thought about it, it did feel a little odd to be staring at her naked fishtits all the time. If she really was human smart, or at least close to it, she should wear clothes. "You got plans tomorrow after work?"

"Not really, why?" asked Jenny.

"I figure we could go shopping," you said. "Buy Midori something to wear."

"Oh," Jenny smiled. "Yeah, that sounds like fun." She thought for moment and smiled. "Yeah, there should be some pretty good deals this time of year. Good idea, Ian." she shrugged and floated on her back. "why do you want me to come?"

"Because you're nice to hang out with," you listed off reasons on your fingers. "because you know more about women's swimsuits than I do? Because a single guy my age poking around the bikini aisle is getting asked to leave faster than you can blink?"

Jenny laughed. "point taken, Ian. Sounds like fun. I've been meaning to pick up a new suit or two, you'll have to help me decide."

You're not sure if you're phisioligically capable of handling that but said nothing.

"So," Jenny drummed her rock hard belly. "you hungry?"

"totally," you said with a smile.

Jenny brought the fixings for some pretty bomb-ass sandwiches. The best roast beef you've ever had, smoked cheese and crisp lettuce just to start. It was all easy, portable stuff, but you hadn't eaten so well since you moved out. The two of you sat by the edge of the pool eating and staring out into the city at night.

"Thanks, Ian." Jenny said through a stuffed mouth. She swallowed and smiled at you. "I'm glad we're friends."

>what say?

"Me too, thanks for inviting me and the diving lessons later too."
>>
"me too," you said. "thanks for the food, and the diving lessons later."

She giggled and splashed at the pool. "you're always welcome, Ian."

For a while the two of you just stared into the evening. Eventually Jenny announced that it was late and she should probably get to bed. You agreed, and after helping her clean up the two of you went your separate ways.

I wasn't planning on going that mechanically in depth. You're always going to be a vastly inferior swimmer than Midori so it's not worth tracking how much she's better than you.

I'm just considering Ian as building general fitness. The rest of the cast are all fitchicks so he's got a while to go.

It was late by the time you finally got home, so you weren't able to get as much done as you'd hoped. Still, you managed to get at least some kind of workout in and make a plan for the morning. You made sure you woke up with time to spare so you could swing by the store on your way to work. You couldn't find a chalkboard for Midori, but you got a nice wide-toothed hairbrush that should do wonders on her coarse mane and a bunch more hair scrunchies. You also made sure to pick up a tape measure so you could get her sizes.

You arrived just as Jenny was closing her locker. She smiled at you, but she was too busy to do more than give you a brief hello before heading to collect her diving rig. You waved back at her and wandered off to check on your assigned exhibits. The stingrays were acting up (again. Darn mischievous sea-pancakes) but eventually you were able to get some time to yourself. You trotted up to the edge of Midori's tank.

To nobody's surprise she was waiting there for you. Your lunch break wasn't long enough to change into trunks and dive in to get her measurements, but you could at least offer her some new toys and get her used to the idea. "Hey, Midori. I brought you something." You waved the hairbrush and ran it through your own hair a few times to demonstrate.

She waved at you and swam up to the edge of the tank. Her long tail trailed behind her. She hauled herself up until almost her whole torso was resting on the tank-edge grating. Her breasts squished comically under her no-doubt impressive weight and her elegance vanished as she basically beached herself.

You settled onto your haunches and she obligingly placed her head in your lap. She actually closed her eyes as soon as she was settled. and started purring before you'd even started to brush her long hair.

You ran the brush through her thick, tough hair and started talking. "So, you want some clothes, huh?" You knew she couldn't understand you. But... you could tell that she knew you were saying something to her. She might not be able to understand your language, but she at least understood that you were speaking to her. "I don't blame you. It's not weird for animals to go around naked, but people?"

You shook your head and pulled a bundle of her hair aside. You'd practiced braiding after Jenny (and the internet. Mostly the internet) showed you how. "And you're not an animal are you? You're a people." You separated her hair into chunks and started working your way down her long mane. The only kind of braid you could remember how to do was a fishtail braid. It... it'd seemed appropriate at the time.

She snuggled closer to you, clearly enjoying resting on your lap while you busied yourself with her hair. "You've got such beautiful hair, you know. So thick and shiny." You could feel her purrs intensify. It was a very deep, low sound. One you more felt than heard. But she seemed happy enough. You kept talking to her about nothing until you'd finished her braid. Unfortunately, that was about all the time you had in your lunch break. You were able to give her the spare hair elastics in case she wanted to do her hair into a ponytail again, but then it was back to work.

After your shift was over you met up with Jenny in the locker room. "You gonna try and measure her?" she asked, hands on those wide hips of hers.

"Yeah," you said, collecting your trunks. "Meet me by her tank, okay?"

She smiled and trotted off, leaving you to get changed in peace. It didn't take long before you were standing next to her at the edge of Midori's tank, measuring tape in hand. "So..." you looked at Jenny. "How do you think we tell her we want to measure her?"

Jenny shrugged. "You're the fish whisperer!"

You'd already taken off your shirt, and you were flexing as hard as you could manage do you didn't look like a complete weakling in front of Midori. And Jenny, now that you thought about it. You've never actually seen her belly without a piece of dark lycra in the way but from the way her wet swimsuit hugged her belly you could tell she's got the kind of abs you could grate cheese on. Of course, you're also sure Jenny's far to sweet a girl to make a big deal of it. "Hmm... okay... how do we demonstrate this to her..."

Midori looked from you to Jenny, clearly interested in what was going on, even if she didn't understand it. Jenny put her hands on her hips and quickly adjusted the butt of her swimsuit. The trials of being so stupid thicc you guessed.

"Wait, I got it!" You snapped your fingers. "Jenny, put your arms up."

"Why? Oh!" She smiled and did as you asked. "I see where you're going with this." She squared her shoulders and puffed out her chest in a way that she probably thought was subtle but really wasn't. You ignored it though and wrapped the tape measure across her breasts. You tried to get it as close to the fullest part of her tits without actually... you know... touching them. You weren't that kind of friend. You held onto the place where the tape crossed itself and moved so you could show Midori the circle it made.

That did the trick. She smiled and clapped. You weren't sure if she'd understand numbers, but she at least got relative lengths. "Okay, stand still." You dropped into the pool and swam over to her. It was the first time you'd actually been in the water with her, and you suddenly realized just how big she was. From the hips up she had the body of a girl maybe your height, but her long tail trailed off at least another three feet and probably closer to six. Not only was she big, you could see all her muscles flex under her greenish skin as she carefully held position near you.

You manged to steady yourself on one of the faux-coral outcroppings decorating her tank. She held up her arms like Jenny'd done and let you wrap the tape around her impressive fishtits. You called out the number to Jenny. You didn't have any frame of reference for these things, but it must've been big because you saw Jenny blush as she scribbled it down.

You kept working down Midori's body. Getting her underbust measurement was trickiest, but her waist size... you'd never felt something like that. She had a nice thick layer of dense insulating blubber, but underneath you could feel toned abs that flexed slightly in response to your every touch. Midori was one fit fish. Finally you finished and tousled her hair in thanks. "Good fish."

Midori purred and nuzzled you with her hawkish nose. You swam back to Jenny and hauled yourself out of the pool. "Those numbers make sense?"

Jenny just gawked at you. "She... she... hot damn she thicc."

"Damn, Jenny." You said with an exaggerated smile. "I didn't know fishtits got so big! What do you think she is, an F-cup?"

Her cheeks went red and she bit her lip in a pout. That didn't stop the energy building up inside her and her cheeks puffed up from holding in whatever she was going to say. Finally she huffed and slapped you upside the head. "She's a fish, okay? She's not a person. Those could be normal for her, we don't know!"

She crossed her arms over her rather smaller endowments. "Besides, she spends her time in the water! She had a rack like that on land and she'd be begging for tits like mine in no time!"

You chuckled. "You know I'm just teasing, don't you?"

Jenny pouted at you, then a smile broke through. "Yeah." She bumped her hip against you and giggled. "Hard to be too jealous when I got an ass like this, right?"

>Right?

"Yeah," you stammered, sweating internally as her big bubble butt slammed into your hip. Jenny might not have fishtits, but she was certainly thicc where it counted. At least... where some people counted it. You weren't sure if you were one of those people. You weren't sure of many things, really. Jenny in a skintight, sopping wet swimsuit had utterly short-circuited what little brainpower you had left after feeling up Midori's massive fishtits. Thankfully, while your lust had taken your brain out to lunch your pride was able to seize control. You would not be bested so easily! "See... you know what you got," you said. "No need to be jealous of the gigantic," you drew out the word for emphasis, "fish titties."

She shook her head and sighed. "So you wanna go shopping or what?" she said.

"Yeah, let me change first." you said, eyeing her curiously to see if she'd make the same offer.

"What?" she put her hands on those thick hips.

"I'm just... curious?"

"You don't think I own any clothes, do you?"

You refused to answer on the basis that it would incriminate you.

"C'mon, dude," she shook her head. "I work in the water all day, of course I wear swimsuits at work! Give me a minute to change, I'll be right out. Oh!" She snapped her fingers. "I rode my bike to work. Think you could give me a lift?"

"Yeah, no problem," you said. You showered off and changed. Jenny beat you to it. She was waiting for you in a pair of tiny cuttoffs and a jacket that was just baggy enough to somehow be worse than if she was stark-ass naked. You couldn't tell if she was wearing her swimsuit underneath. Only part of you wanted to know. "Shall we?"

"Yeah," she said, trotting along beside you. "You thinking one piece or two for her?"

"Won't it have to be two-peice?" you asked. "'cause... the tail?"

Jenny shrugged. "I could always re-hem it. Turn it into like a tank-top." She shrugged at your look. "What? I know how to sew! I actually make most of my swimsuits. It's a hobby."

You shrugged and slid into your car.

Your mind was racing before you'd even put your car in drive. Playing dress-up wasn't exactly the manlyest of activities, but you didn't care. With Midori's ripping girlabs and massive stonking fishtits there were possibilities there you'd never even considered. You hoped you'd find something she'd like, and you were sure whatever it was would be infinitely more dangerous than just her bare breasts.

"Hey, Ian?" Jenny stretched out in the seat beside you. The hem of her cutoffs was visibly struggling to contain her thickness and you could see some healthy skindentation where her legs disappeared under the denim. "Thanks for taking me."

"No problem," you said. "I wouldn't know what to look for without an expert."

She laughed and threw a lock of her hair behind her ear. "That's not what I meant. Thanks for being a friend. Usually by now guys have written me off as that wierd diving chick. Or... They're just ignoring everything I say in a single minded attempt to get in my pants."

>she's been a good friend to you, make sure she knows.

"You are a good friend Jenny, you had no reason to help me out with the diving stuff or any of this, so thanks"
>>
You gawked at Jenny like she'd just grown a third head. "You own pants?"

She crossed her arms with a huff. She was putting on a decent act of haughty annoyance, but her quivering cheeks betrayed how much she wanted to smile. "I own pants, yes," she said through pursed lips. "it's just summer and I like wearing shorts."

With thighs like that you don't blame her. You didn't say that out loud though. She might be the hottest thing on two legs, but you'd rather not let her in on the primal fantasies of your caveman brain. "You're a good friend, you know that?"

She blushed and sputtered something to minimize her efforts.

"I mean it," you said, pulling in to the parking lot. "you didn't have to help me out with diving or anything, but here we are."

Jenny blushed and smoothed her hair. "you make it easy, Ian."

You pulled into a parking space at the mall and the two of you wandered in to the first shop you came across. You noticed something right away, a tiny string bikini with just enough fabric to cover the model's nipples. "what about this?"

"for Midori? Nah," Jenny shrugged. "She already swims naked, if she wanted to show off she wouldn't need a swimsuit."

"point," you acknowledged.

"Ohh," Jenny held up a tank top with TUNA written over the front in block letters. "we have to get this."

You flashed her a thumbs up and kept looking. Finding a racing suit for Jenny to modify was easy enough (after the pretty shopkeeper girl almost fainted at the measurements you gave her) but you wanted to get her something else. A bikini that would really show off her figure.

"What about this?" Jenny held up a nice blue patterned top. It would pretty much cover her fishtits while still framing her delts and traps nicely.

> looks good, let's move on.

>>
You collected everything you'd picked out so far. The racing one peice Jenny promised she could modify to fit Midori's tail, the TUNA shirt you just had to give her, the bikini top that'd show off her muscles and one more suit.

Another bikini, but one with a high neckline. Her cleavage would be totally covered, but the cut left a lot of the outside and top of her fishtits exposed. You thought it looked nice. A classy way to flaunt her curves. You were about to go check out when Jenny tapped you on the shoulder.

"Hey, I found something I really like, mind if I try it on?" she clasped her hands and rocked her hips interrogativly.

"Yeah," you said said. How could you say no to puppy dog eyes like that.

Jenny smiled and vanished into the changing room. She came back a moment later in the hottest bikini you'd ever seen. It was a double layered affair with black covering the essentials and blue striped white giving more shape and style. It managed to accent her breasts and make her killer hips even more eye catching.

Or it would have, if it wasn't also baring her stomach. You'd never seen Jenny's tummy before and now you knew what your were missing. The girl was working with at least an eight pack and ever one was defined enough to grate cheese and wash clothes simultaneously.

Yes, that metaphor made no sense but it was the best you could manage with girlabs like that in your face.

"so," Jenny did a little twirl. "do you like it?

How is it that all the girls in your life have shredded fitness-insta abs. Mind you, you're not complaining at all. Big tits are nice but there's something about tight toned tummies that really brings the whole look together and elevates it beyond the sum of its parts. "you look good, Jenny," you said with a thumbs up. "you and swimwear is a natural fit!"

She shook her head. "Ian, with thighs like these nothing is a natural fit for me."

"Okay, fair," you shrugged. "you still look good though."

She beamed. "thanks. I'm not usually a bikini girl, but these colors just spoke to me."

She trotted off to the changing room. It didn't take her long to switch back to casual clothes and buy the layered bikini. She threw a few bucks your way when you bought the suits for Midori and the two of you wandered out to find the rest of your shopping list.

It was a quick trip until Jenny saw something and tugged on your shirt. "Hey, Midori likes stacking her cups, right?" she pointed to a shelf of duplo blocks.

I’d trust her with lego, but honestly keeping track of all the smaller pieces underwater sounds like it would just be a massive annoyance for her, even aside from also having to worry about the smaller fish she shares a tank with thinking they’re food and getting sick, which would probably get us in trouble with our bosses.

You bought a box of assorted duplo blocks for Midori and a smaller mecha set of real legos. Ostensibly that one was also for Midori but really it was for you. You could tell from Jenny's smug smile t that she'd seen through your cunning deception. That said, she'd picked up a small set herself so she wasn't so above it all.

The two of you were about to leave the mall when Jenny's stomach let out a loud rumble. She winced, blushing as a passersby double taked at such a hearty sound coming from such a slender tummy. "sorry," she said. "I had a light lunch."

You stifled a giggle as Jenny hugged her growling gut. "How's pizza sound to you two?"

Jenny rolled her eyes and scoffed. "pizza sounds great! Don't eat it much these days."

"really?" you asked.

"yeah," Jenny nodded. "all that grease? Goes straight to my thighs."

You looked pointedly at her massively thick and well muscles legs before the two of you burst out laughing. You placed the order on your phone and drove back to the aquarium. Just about everyone had already left so you had the place to yourself.

You changed into your trunks and Jenny wandered off to break in her new bikini. Midori was swimming laps around the bottom half of her tank when you arrived. She smiled at you and gestured inquisitivly towards the surface.

You smiled back and flashed her a thumbs up. By the time you'd reached the tankside Midori was waiting for you on the surface. She'd rolled on her back with her light colored tummy basking in the sun and her massive fishtits on full display.

"I got you something," you said, pulling the swimsuits from your shopping bag.

She smiled and clapped and swam over to have a look. She hauled her torso partially out of the water and inspected each one on detail. First the skimpy blue bikini, then the high-cut but sideboob baring suit, and finally the TUNA crop top.

She nodded and looked back at you inquisitivly. She pointed from one to the next to the next then back to herself with a quizzical expression.
>>
>what do?
>>
>>3795918
>nod
>"Yes, those are for you"
>>
>>3795918
Yes, they are all for you

Want to try one on

Get really close, maybe make her sit at the edge and help her put the top on
Midori raising her hands to put a short will do wonders to her fishtits
>>
"Yes," you said with a smile. "those are all for you."

You could tell Midori was trying to look grateful, but she was more frustrated than anything. Not unstackable cups frustrated, but still. The language barrier was getting on her nerves.

She picked up the TUNA shirt and held it to her chest. She pointed at you and quickly flashed a thumbs up and a thumbs down. She did the same for the two swimsuits before setting them back down.

She pointed to one, then the next, then the next, pausing over each to watch your expression. You could see hope in her big gold eyes

>what's she trying to say?
>>
>>3795950
She wants us to pick?
>>
>>3795950
Asking for opinion.
Give thumbs up to everything
especially to TUNA crop top
>>
>>3795950
>Maybe she’s trying to ask which one we like best? (TUNA, obviously :v)
>(Also start quietly freaking out a bit with Jenny if right, cause... huh, those are definitely signs of understanding language she’s got there, aren’t they?)
>>
>>3795950
I think she's asking our opinion. Like, which one's our favourite. Or maybe she's asking us to try them on too.

"Sup, Ian?" Jenny walked over in her bikini. You noticed Midori shoot a dirty look at the diver's rock hard abs for a moment before looking back at you.

"I... I think she's trying to get me to choose my favorite," you said. "Right? Favorite? Fave-" you picked up each swimsuit in turn and flashed a thumbs up, but when it came to the TUNA shirt you flashed two.

Midori nodded and clapped. She smiled from ear to ear when you finally made the connection.

"Ian what the fuuuuuuck," muttered Jenny. "that's--"

"I know," you were giddy yourself. That degree of complex thought? That had to be a sign of language! That meant she was totally closer to people then animals. Which made it doubly important to get her massive fishtits covered.

"Okay, arms up." you mimed the gesture and Midori obligingly followed suit. Her well developed lateral muscles flared like the hood of a cobra and her already huge fishtits thrust out further.

"nobody that big should be be that perky," grumbled Jenny. Midori just preened as you helped get her the crop top on.

It was a bit of a tight fit. The shirt was a hair too short and left a small sliver of underboob uncovered. But Midori didn't seem to mind. She smiled and grabbed handfulls of her chest and kneaded them through her new shirt. Apperently satisfied she flashed you a thumbs up.

"Let's break out the toys," said Jenny a bit hastily. Midori seemed to recognize the word 'toys.' she swam over and stopped next to you with her boobs piling up on the tank side walkway like it was a shelf.

>yes, let's
>tease Jenny first
>something else
>>
>>3795989
>>yes, let's
>>
>>3795950
She wants to know what we like, huh? I'm surprised she's using thumbs up/down. Maybe we should try teaching her sign language after all.

"Yes, let's," you said hastily. You gave the duplo box to Midori and opened your own box of legos onto a tray. You weren't sure why the aquarium had trays like that laying around, they didn't seem to have any specific purpose, but they were just generally useful.

Midori watched the two of you with interest then did likewise. She tore open to he box and dumped her pieces onto a tray. She smiled as the chunky plastic bits spilled out and immediately started staking them into a tower.

"Now you're getting it!" you encouraged Midori with a pat to the head.

She smiled and purred and started talking her tower apart to build something else. Before you could see what it was your phone rang.

"pizza guy's here," Jenny craned around to check your phone.

"I'll get it," Ian dusted himself off and padded down to collect your pizza, leaving you alone with Midori.

You didn't know what to make of her. On one hand, you were dead certain she'd teased you over her enormously bigger breasts. She didn't have to arch her back like that when Ian was helping her dress, and even if that was an accident she didn't have to flash you such a smug look.

On the other hand though, recognizing the... Small... Wholly understandable streak of breasts envy you might have been displaying indicated a startling degree of cognitive development. Recognizing your tit-related insecurities and exploiting them so quickly gave you a fascinating look onto just how smart she was.

But on the other other hand, she'd made fun of your boobs.

So really... You didn't know what to feel. You were half miffed, half surprised and excited, and all hungry for greasy ass pizza.

You contented your self with playing with Lego while you mulled the thought over. Then Midori did something interesting.

She picked up one of her big duplo blocks and weighed it in her hand. Then she set it on your tray and made a little pile of some of your parts next to it. When she'd made the pile she slowly pushed her brick toward you and looked up with curiosity.

>what do?
>>
>>3796060
Trade with her, that's what she wants
>>
>>3796060
>Trade with her.
To really make her flip her top, we can show her that lego and duplo are compatible building blocks.

>>3796063

>>
>>3796060
I'm lost really. I thought it could be offer of trade but she grab our blocks. So what she wants to trade our blocks for our different blocks?
>>
>>3796065
She probably figured that out, that's why she is asking for some
>>
>>3796070
She didn't actually take any of yours, she just made a little pile of the ones she wanted so you'd know what she was interested in.
>>
>>3796070
She wants to trade one of her duplo blocks, that are bigger, for several lego blocks, that are small, based on weight
>>
>>3796072
I think she wants to trade for trial and error, not out of definite knowledge. Also, Duplo combining can get a bit finicky, so I think we may have to show her how.
>>
>>3796076
Maybe, but let's see what she does with it first or if she figures out by herself

Damn, I wish Ian was here to see this
>>
>>3796060
trade blocks
get worried she is smarter than we think
>>
>>3796060
Trade. What's the Lego-Duplo exchange rate?
>>3796065
Wait, they are?
>>
>>3796060
Mybe shes trying to trade? Since hers blocks are biger she thinks she can get more for yours??
Could try to build something with her
>>
>>3796060
I would say not to trade till after we finshed makeing our lego model ( show off how better our blocks are mahah), then we can trade with her.
>>
>>3796060
Trade.
>>
"so... You want to trade, huh?" you shrugged and pushed the little pile she'd made toward her and took the duplo brick for yourself. Midori was... It was fascinating watching her. You were starting to think she was way smarter than you thought.

Midori smiled and collected her new toys. She turned one of the bricks--a common two by four-- over in her hand. Then with a smile she flipped a duplo brick over and connected the two.

"You are smart!" you couldn't believe what you'd just seen. Sure you wouldn't be able to finish your model now but that was so cool you didn't care. "good fish!"

She preened under the praise and toyed with her legos. She clearly enjoyed the real deal more. She was already eyeing Ian's pile curiously. She blinked and looked conspiratorially at you.

You gave Midori a wink and pointedly looked the other way. She got the hint and snagged the pieces she was eyeing, and not a moment too soon either. She'd barely added them to her collection when Ian walked up with a stack of pizza boxes.

Your belly let out a loud involuntary grumble and fishtits over there covered her mouth in a noiseless giggle.

"what's going on here?" Ian shook his head and settled down cross legged by the tank. He offered you the first slice. You took a big wedge of cheese and pepperoni and folded it into the mother of all sandwiches.

It was a good way to cap off the evening.

- - - - end of JennyQuest - - - -

The next morning you (Ian) came in to work excited to spend more time with Midori. Jenny too, now that you thought about it. You'd never hung out with her before, you'd expected her to be more of a haughty bitch considering... You know... Her hotness.

Instead, you were intercepted by Glenda before you'd made it three steps into work. "they want to see you in the office," age grunted, all but grabbing you by the scruff of your neck.

You could see it in her eyes. She had a problem wat above her pay grade, and you were somehow involved!

>apologize for... For everything that you can think of
>admit nothing! Deny everything!
>keep your mouth shut. The suits see with echolocation. You think.

Oh, we didn't get to give her pizza!

Let's hope we are not in too much trouble and cam still spend time with Midori

You've seen enough television to know where this was going. She was about to blame you for some minor incident or give you a trivial task and if you started blubbering she'd realize she had new and more important things to be angry at you for. Instead you kept your mouth shut and followed her into the office.

There was another man waiting there. His hair was the color of brushed steel and you could tell he was older, but he didn't have the body of a man his age. Even through his deep blue suit you could tell he was fit as could be.

"Mister Carson?" his tone was polite, open, but utterly in control. Suddenly you realized the double breasted suit he was wearing wasn't a suit at all. The sleeves were ringed with gold braids and his chest was adorned with a small mountain of medals and decorations. "Captain Ramsay, united states navy." he offered you a hand.

>wat do?
>>
>>3797294
Shake his hand. Ask what we can do for him.
>>
>>3797294
Take his hand

"What can I be of help"

Calling it right now, WE ARE NOT turning Midori into a lab rat for these milutary fucks
>>
>>3797294
>shake his hand, ask him why he's here and why he wants us specifically
Be cool, relaxed.
>>
>>3797299
Doubt. Mermaids are common. If the military were doing something they're not going to recruit a civie and a common mermaid from an aquarium. At least I hope QM is not doing that. Reminds me too much of that stupid plot point in the new Jurassic park movies.
>>
>>3797294
>wat do?
>Shake his hand
>Pray to whatever god you believe
>Shit our pants
>>
>>3797309
You never know, maybe the level of openess Midori showed with us is very rare, we never read anything about her level of intelligence when we stidied, I'm afraid

Maybe we will have to Free Willie Midori out of the aquarium

That would be a cool adventure
>>
You shook his hand. His grip was strong, but restrained. He didn't try to crush you into submission, but you were pretty sure he could if he tried. "Captain," you said cautiously. Wasn't that like the highest you could go in the navy without getting stars?

"I understand you've been training... What was her name again?" he glanced at Glenda. You could tell he already knew Midori's name, but you appreciated how he phrased it. "Her" name not "it's" or "the mermaid's". You could tell that he thought of her as more than just an animal.

"Midori," she said.

"Midori, yes," said Ramsay. "you've been training her?"

"Well..." you shrugged. "Not training her as much as... We're friends I guess."

The captain smiled. "friends. I understand she's shown an unprecedented degree of openness toward you?"

"Yeah?" you said cautiously.

"Son, I'm sure you understand the strategic advantage mermaids could provide," said Ramsay. Now that he mentioned it you remembered a few programs during the cold War to train mermaids for military purposes. None of them went anywhere though. "We've tried it before, but met with degrees of failure every time. I think we could do it right this time, and I want you to help."

>what say
>>
>>3797337
Why? What can she do that machines can't eventually?
>>
>>3797337
Pretty much this >>3797342

I'm not sure what they could provide that the Navy doesn't already have something for.
>>
>>3797337
She just likes my company, I'm not doing anything special here

Try to brush it off

We will need to take her away, military will try to disect her to see whats different about her
>>
>>3797294
Shake it and say you name and ask what his here for, cant be for a tour is it?
>>
When we have a chance we should tell about this to Midori, in the off chance that she understand us we can talk to her and offer to help
>>
>>3797337
Sounds like its a bit over my pay grade, what would this place, me and her get from this? And what type of training?
Also dont you has robots that can do anything they can or did you just want a cheaper version of the robots?
>>
>>3797367
Supporting.
>>
"Why?" you asked, curiosity overwhelming you. "Don't you have drones and... And ships and stuff? What could mermaids do for the navy that you don't have machines for?"

Ramsay smiled, genuinely happy to hear your question. "Son, a 688 attack boat can't dive past fifteen hundred feet before she implodes from the pressure. There's species of mermaids who do more than twice that on a single breath."

He started to pace the small office. "These people have been plying the depths since before man even imagined the submersible. Imagine what we could learn from them."

"Didn't the navy already try that?" you asked.

"We did," he admitted. "I firmly believe our failure lay in treating them as animals to be trained when they're clearly intelligent beings."

You pursed your lips. At least he wasn't proposing dissecting Midori or anything. "So where do I come in?"

"You and Midori developed a remarkable bond in a short length of time," said the captain. "I'd like to bring you, Midori, and..."

"Jenny," said Glenda.

"...Jenny on base where we have a number of other mermaid who've proven intelligent. I want to see what we can learn from them?"

"Why me?" you asked. "I'm just a random civilian."

"You're a natural at befriending the mermaids," said Ramsay. "but to answer your question I want people who think outside the box. People not afraid to question... Shall we say moral boundaries."

>accept
>ask for some time to think about it
>refuse

>>3797337
I mean how did you treat them liek peoples or liek dogs? I hope you can understand my worrys meda, movies and the govment dont paint this kinda thing in very nice light

Need to discuss with all parties involved. If it's just for research purposes I don't see why not, but the Navy wouldn't be knocking at our door for that.
>>
>>3797377

>ask for some time to think about it

We have to try and talk with Midori about this, try to make her understand

And why the hell would Jenny go along? Just for questing purposes?
>>
>>3797391
And the main thing, if they are intelligent they can't force them to do things, or dangerous stuff against their will
>>
>>3797391
Jenny has a good rapport with Midori.
>>
>>3797377
>ask for some time to think about it
Well, holy fuck, we can't just refuse. They'll just kick us out of the way. We need to accept, but we also need some time to think about how we're gonna fuck over the entire navy.
>>
>People not afraid to question... Shall we say moral boundaries."
hahahaha
NO

>>3797377
>ask for some time to think about it
>>
>>3797377
>moral boundaries sir?
>ask for some time to think about it
>discuss it with Jenny etc

> I want people who think outside the box. People not afraid to question... Shall we say moral boundaries
Oh boy he will be disappointed
>>
>>3797405
Yeah, I'm full on support of mermaid romance but I'm afraid they'll want mermaid torture and indocrination

Damn, poor Midori
>>
>>3797411
That's not actually what I was trying to have him say. Ramsay's worried that an all military team would ignore moral ramifications in the interest of getting results. That's why he wants civilians, he's hoping they'll be more resistant to just mindlessly following orders.
>>
>>3797419
Ok THAT makes sense.
>"Oh I see you have friendly relationship with that mermaid"
>"Be prepared to do some fucked up shit boy!"
>>
"Moral boundaries, sir?" you asked cautiously.

"The greatest failings of our last attempts," said Ramsay. "Treating the mermaids like animals and not the thinking beings that they are. It's why I want civilians like yourself included in the project. Military men have a way of setting conscience aside when ordered."

You could tell he wasn't just telling you what you wanted to hear. You saw honest shame in his face and an eager desire to do better.

"Could I have some time to think about it?" you asked. A part of you was worried he'd try and pressure you in to signing up here and now, but instead Ramsay just smiled.

"Of course," he said, giving you a small card, "take as much time as you need."

You excused yourself and almost immediately ran into Jenny. She was soaking wet and giddy as a school girl. "Can you believe it?" she squealed.

You blinked at her. "Uh... Jenny?"

"The navy, they talked to you too, right?"

You nodded

"It's so cool, working with mermaids!" Jenny giggled like an implausibly thick schoolgirl. "I don't know how much he told you, but I hear they have a tiger-backed sharkmaiden! They're super rare in captivity, I've always wanted to see one! I hear they'll let me swim with her."

"Aren't... Aren't tiger-backs apex predators?" you said, trying not to get caught up in her boundless enthusiasm.

"Yeah, so?" Jenny shrugged.

You laughed and tousled her dripping wet hair. She really did love the ocean.

"It'll be nice for Midori to have some friends like her," she said. "Other mermaids, you know?"

>what say?
>>
>>3797424
"If mermaids are actually as intelligent and social as humans, let's just hope Midori isn't anti-social amongst her peers."
>>
>>3797424
"But if they are inteligent, isn't it wrong to keep them locked up and studying them for the military?
I want to try and communicate with Midori, see what she thinks

We tell her we would go to a different place and that there may be more mermaids like her but we don't know whats gonna happen

If we do go we ahould stay all the way with Midori to make sure she is alright
>>
>>3797436
Maybe if Jenny is so exited to work with mermaids she could accept their offer now and go ahead of us, and then call us to tell us if it's safe for us to take Midori there
>>
>>3797424
>>what say?
>I guess so. I'm kinda iffy on military use of mermaids. But I guess it's good opportunity for all of us.
>Accept job offer.
>>
>>3797424
Let's head to Midori's tabk before accepting

Signaling for her, then counting more numbers, then making a singnal for her and us being together there by pointing to her, then to us and approaching both fingers
And lastly asking for her confirmation with a thumbs up or down
Depending on what she says we accept, its for her sake and it will affect her the most after all
>>
"But if they're so intelligent isn't it wrong to keep them locked up in captivity?" you asked.

"you mean like we do to Midori?" Jenny shrugged. "I mean... A nice safe tank, all the food you could eat, plenty of loooove," she batted her eyes at you and giggled. "if I were a fish I wouldn't want to leave."

"You're not Midori," you said.

"She seem like she wants out?"

You didn't have a good answer to that. You hadn't been paying close attention to Midori for very long, but you'd never seen her act restless or morose.

"Besides, if she's as smart as they say shouldn't we let her make new friends?" asked Jenny.

"what if she's anti social with them?" you worried.

"She'll find comfort in your loving arms," teased Jenny. "Hey, I gotta get back to work. Talk tonight?"

"sure," you said. The two of you parted ways. You got through your tasks as quickly as you could and made time to see Midori.

She'd built a little submarine from her legos and was happily swooshing it around her tank. She was still stuffed into the TUNA shirt, and the sopping wet fabric did her massive fishtits no sins. She smiled as soon as she saw you and pointed to the surface with an inquisitive look.

You flashed her a thumbs up and joined her at the top of the ship tank. "Hey, Midori," you said.

She waved at you. And swam up to edge of her tank.

"so... We," you drew a big circle on the air around the two of you. "might be going to a different place."

Midori mimed picking something up and putting it elsewhere. Then she looked to you for confirmation.

"Right!" you clapped. "somewhere else."

She pointed to something behind you with concern. You realized it was the bucket her food usually came in.

"Don't worry, you'll still be fed." you pointed to the bucket and gave her a thumbs up.

Midori smiled and clapped. Then she put a hand over her mouth like a scuba regulator and squished her boobs as flat as she could manage with her other hand.

"Yes, Jenny will be there too," you said. You were never going to tell Jenny about that particular sign.

She smiled again and flashed you a thumbs up.

"Well be working with the navy," you said. You picked up her submarine and jabbed it at things making what you imagined torpedo noises sounded like. She didn't really get it, but it was a hard concept to articulate to a fish.

Midori stared at you, then swam back and flexed her arms. Of course the fishgirl has bigger biceps than you. She patted her muscles and looked at you inquisitivly.

"Yeah, you'll be using your strength, I think."

She smiled and clapped for you. You did your best to explain what you knew. She was a little hesitant at the idea of having more mermaids to be around, but after you reassured her you were still going to be friends she was all for her new adventure.

You played with her a bit and presented her with the chalkboard you'd gotten her. It took her a while to get used to drawing, but before long she was engrossed. You gave her head a pat and wandered off to find Jenny.

She was in the breakroom scarring down a huge sandwich. It always astonished you how much that girl could eat. "Sup, Ian."

Friendly G-man or no, the government is only in this for military results. If they want something bad enough they'll do anything to get at it, even casting their empathy for sapient species - human and mermaid - aside.
We've got a big, BIG task ahead of us if all three of us want to get out of this the same as we came in.

why are you guys so trusting of them? why would we put Midori in danger without confirming things first?

Not everyone is as willing to treat mermaids as people instead of equipment.

Really guys you want them go by themselves? MC is stupid let's not add coward to the list.
>>
>>3797843
did you understand it well dude?

it's for Jenny to go first since she wants to work with mermaids
Midori stays here with us, and then when Jenny gives the ok we take Midori there with us
this is not us being cowards, it's us making sure that Midori will be safe and not taking her there blindly without checking if the military dudes are up to something sinister
>>
"Just thinking," you said. "worried about how the navy guys would treat Midori."

Jenny smirked. "aw, that's sweet. You really think they're not on the level?"

You shrugged. "I'm not sure what to think. But if there going full Mengle on mermaids I want to know."

"I... Hmm..." Jenny thought.

"You're excited to work with them, right?" you asked. "what if you went ahead? Scouted it out?"

"ooh all cloak and dagger!" Jenny made a gun with her fingers and shook her hips to the tune of the James Bond theme. "I can send you a message in code!"

"I'm... Not sure that's necessary, but good enthusiasm." you said.

Your plan unfolded perfectly. Jenny jumped at the chance to play with some high end military diving toys and from what she told you the navy mermaids lived like queens compared to even Midori's tank. She hinted that there was even more cool stuff but she didn't want to ruin the supprise.

The navy sent a truck to pick up you and Midori. They'd fitted a big tank in the back for her to rest in. You were worried she's feel cramped with no room to swim around, but any discomfort was canceled our by the excitement of moving without swimming.

She was like a puppy, gawking out the windows at everything you passed. You'd never seen her so giddy. Before long you were at the base.

Jenny was waiting for you on the loading dock. As usual she was wearing a very snug one-piece and the poor sailors standing beside her were struggling not to stare at her ass. "Hey, Ian!" she waved. "Hey, Midori! How's my favorite fish?"

Midori swam over and nuzzled Jenny thigh.

"So, let's get her in the tubes, boys," she waves to the sailors.

>wait, tubes?
>you've done well for yourself
>so, what's that surprise?

"Wait," you said, mentally taken aback. "Tubes?"

"Yeah," Jenny put her hands on her hips, visibly bursting with enthusiasm. "There's like thirty separate tanks and pools in the complex. They're linked by... Actually most are linked by open topped canals, but there's a few tubes so that's what we call the whole thing."

"They can just go where they want? The mermaids I mean?" you asked. You didn't want to imagine how much this complex would cost.

"Unless they're like in the medbay yeah," Jenny laughed as Midori was rather gracelessly flushed from her holding tank into the tube system. She seemed to enjoy it though, the mermaid flashed both thumbs up and smiled.

"They can even go outside if they want," added Jenny. "One of the tubes leads to the open ocean. They usually hang out here though."

Midori looked from you to Jenny, floating in a canal maybe four feet wide. She looked curious but not at all scared.

"Wanna check out your room?" Jenny smiled to her and jumped into the canal. She folded her hands and mimed sleeping.

Midori nodded and motioned for Jenny to lead the way?

>questions while en route?

And, Midori seemed happy, that makes me happy and more at ease too

QM seems to be avoiding the evil military trope. I'm interested now.
>>
>>3798099
But thats going to be the evil twist at the end
>>
>>3798124
God would that be lame, I mean if one or so of the guys are dicks then yeah i get it but the whole military, nah.
>>
>>3798124
No, the twist is they're trying to breed amphibious fish-men for aquatic operations by having human men breed with mermaids.

The actual twist is that the guy who first proposed this plan had a mermaid fetish, and through a series of fuck-ups had somehow passed off his mermaid fapfiction that he had accidentally brought to the Navy secret project meeting as a possible military project. The admiral thought it had promise, so he gave him a couple million to pursue it.
>>
>>3798170
Would totlay back that, we become best bros.
>>
>>3798170
it seems we have something in common then

>>3798099
it's not that they are evil, but military institutions are often awfully pragmatic, and that means ignoring emotional and moral inclinations quite often
>>
>>3798170
hell yeah fish babies
>>
>>3798208
We will try with nationalistic pride.
>>
Even though it might lead to drama later on, I really hope we see a few more recruited handlers at the base.

It would make me feel a bit better than knowing that the Navy literally grabbed the first couple people to vaguely fit their criteria, and there would definitely be a lot less pressure to bond with lots of mermaids other than Midori if at least some of them already had humans they were close to.
>>
>>3798369
we will sing the national anthem while making fish babies
>>
>>3798403
You'll see at least a few in passing. You probably won't interact with a lot of them, I don't want too much character bloat.
>>
You walked alongside Jenny and Midori. The canal was raised above the floor so you could look right accros at the two of them. Really, there was no reason for Jenny to swim, but it was Jenny so...

"What are you training them for?" you asked.

"We're learning from them," said Jenny. "Figuring out how their bodies do what they do."

"And?" you said abruptly.

"And we're teaching them how to use spy gear and stuff. I don't really handle that part though."

"So I'm guessing there's other trainers?" you asked.

"Yeah," Jenny nodded. "Mostly in the south wing though. They're good people though." you couldn't help but notice her cheeks go a little flush at that.

"how many fish you have?" you asked.

"About a half dozen total. Only one in this wing, the rest are usually in practical training."

You gave her a look.

"The navy has guys who train them on... Like spy gear and demolition and stuff," explained Jenny. "We're not qualified--I mean I am but you're not--anyway we don't teach them that."

You blinked. "you're qualified around explosives?"

"It's an old work thing, before I started at the aquarium," Jenny shook it off. You'd always known she'd had a varied past, but explosives is new to you. "anyway, we and the other civilian trainers are here to look after the girls. You know, make sure they're doing okay, stuff like that."

You understood why captain Ramsay wanted civilians for that. "The mermaids can just leave, right? Why don't they."

"I dunno," Jenny flashed you a teasing smile. "warm water, no predators, all the food they could eat, toys galore... I've got no idea why they hang around."

Midori gave you a look. You could handle sass from Jenny but now the fish was getting in on it.

Before long you were at Midori's "room". It was smaller than her tank at the aquarium but still big enough for her to swim around in. She did a lap and at Jenny's prompting settled under a secluded under hang for a nap. The truck ride must've really taken it out of her.

"so," Jenny hauled herself out of the water. "you hungry, or you want to meet the other mermaids?"

>"Yeah," Jenny nodded. "Mostly in the south wing though. They're good people though." you couldn't help but notice her cheeks go a little flush at that.

"I could go for some dinner," you said. You tried not to laugh when Jenny shook herself dry. You'd never seen Midori shoot someone such a dirty look. At least not until Jenny slipped a finger under the butt of her swimsuit and tugged it over her ass.

"great!" Jenny clapped. "I'm... I dunno who'll all be there, but I'll introduce you when I can." she led you through a hall with a wide canal built into it and into the strangest mess hall you'd ever seen.

The serving line was set in a peninsula in the middle. One side was walk-up while the other was set against a pool. There weren't any mermaids in the water, but it was obviously set up for their convenience. The pool wound through the room. Tables sat right up against the thick glass divider so man and fish could share a meal together.

Other than servers the place was pretty empty though. You saw Jenny deflate a little. "Dang, I must've missed lunch."

You shrugged. "introduce me another time." you followed her to the serving line and loaded up your tray. You just got some chicken and veggies, but Jenny loaded her tray down with a mountain of fish and potatoes.

"You sure you've got enough there?" you teased her.

She looked at her plate and shrugged. "I mean... I am eating for two now..." she cupped a hand over her middle.

Wait, I thought we were supposed to get the mermaids pregnant, not the other way around...

...I mean, it’s still hot, in a way, but...
>>
"Wow," you said, honestly floored. Sure, Jenny was hot and all, so you're not supprised someone would want to fuck her, but a momma? "uh... Congratulations. Who's the lucky father?"

"there isn't one," Jenny settled into a chair. "it's part of an expiment, see... The navy wants to see if mermaids can be raised by humans. I volunteered of course," she wolfed down a slab of grilled fish. "they implanted a bunch of mermaid eggs. Give it a few months and I'll have a litter of the Lil nuggets."

You squinted at her in disbelief until you saw the corners of her mouth twitch. She was desperatly trying to contain her laughter.

>call her out.
>go with it. See how much longer she can keep up the act.
>>
>>3799448
I was wondering why you and Midori were spending so much time swimming together. Careful, though, you’re going to need to lay them in a safe spot in case of barracuda. Have you picked out a coral outcropping yet?

"Well If that what's going on no wonder that your thighs didn't get bigger with how much you eat"
>>
"Wow," you tried not to giggle as she rather obviously tried to push her belly out a bit. You could still see her abs through her swimsuit though so it didn't really work. "you know, I was wondering why you and Midori were spending so much time together."

"oh, yeah," Jenny nodded. "I think I still got space in the oven for a few more buns if she's willing to lend the eggs." you could see it in her strained face. She knew she was in too far, but she was determined not to crack.

"careful though," you added. "make sure that you lay them in a nice safe spot to keep away the barracudas. Have you picked out a nice peice of coral?"

She bit her lips. Her cheeks puffed put and she was almost crying from holding in her giggles. Finally she collapsed back in her chair with heaving guffaws." Ian, I'm... I'm not pregnant with fishes."

>of course not, I was just teasing you.
>so you're just fat then?

>>
"I know," you said. "you had me for a while so congrats, but you got greedy with the experiment angle."

"Darn," Jenny snapped her fingers and sighed. "oh well funny while it lasted."

"Anyway , other than shoving eggs where the don't shine how are the people here?" you asked.

"Oh, they're great," said Jenny. "there's this one guy from Australia who's..." she whistled.

You laughed. "maybe you will leave here with a baby." you had to dodge the roll she'd chucked at you.

"be nice," she said. "I haven't decided if I like him or not."

"uh huh," you shook your head. Midori was more your speed, but far be it from you to keep some presumably dashing aussie from finding solace between those killer thighs.

"Hey," Jenny smirked as the two of you returned your trays. "let me show you the other mermaid we'll be working with."

She lead you down a few more of the oddly wide half-canal hallways and stopped at a hefty door. A hand lettered sign read "Mako had been fed. DON'T BELIEVE HER LIES." it was signed and dated a few hours ago.

Jenny rolled her eyes and fished an ID card out from the front of her still damp swimsuit. "C'mon," she motioned you inside.

The room was like Midori's but bigger and far more cluttered. Legos were scattered on a desk like surface a few inches above the water and you saw at least a dozen foam toys and balls floating around. All of them were missing bites.

"Mako, I have friends!" Jenny called.

(cont)
>>
One second the water was still as rippled glass. The next it was a froth of chop and foam as something huge exploded to the surface. It, or rather she, was a massive shark maiden.

From the hips up she had the body of a star athlete maybe six feet tall. Her arms were thick with muscle, her belly defined even through the tight modified one piece she wore, and her beasts huge and full as Midori's. Her tail was easily another six feet. Her fins whipped like knives as she powered towards you.

Her mouth opened to a craggy maw full of nothing but row after row of razor sharp teeth. She slammed to a stop right accros from you, splashing you from the violence of her stop. "Cheeseburger?" she half-requested half-demanded.

>did that fish just talk?

You gulped in surprise. Also a bit of fear from seeing all those teeth attached to an apex predator who could probably rip you limb from limb given the definition of her arm muscles. Also maybe a tiny bit of arousal because hot damn that was one fit fish. "Did..." you stammered and looked to Jenny "Did she just talk?"

Mako settled down against the wall of her tank with her huge fishtits resting on top of the divider between your world and hers. You weren't sure, but her boobs might be even bigger than Midori's.

"Yeah, she can talk," said Jenny. "it turns out most mermaids can, they just have trouble doing it in air at frequencies we can hear. The navy came up with a thing to translate."

Mako nodded and pulled back a lock of her thick white-black hair. She had a choker around her thick neck with contacts pressed against were her vocal cords would be.

"It helps pitch their voices so it's comfortable for them to speak but at a pitch we can hear." Jenny put her hands on her hips and smiled. "apparently the hardest part was rigging the battery so mako wouldn't eat it as soon as we turned our backs."

Mako ignored Jenny's accusing look and preened herself. If anything, she looked proud of the accusation. She glanced over to you and threw some of her long hair over her surprisingly muscular shoulder." cheeseburger? "she asked again, miming eating in case you hadn't gotten the point accros.

"mako, we fed you an hour ago," Jenny shook her head.

Mako pouted and flexed her arms.

Jenny scowled. "fine, you're a growing girl... One cheeseburger." she glanced at you. "you wanna feed a shark?"

>sure, I'll be right back with her burger.

"Sharks... Eat cheeseburger?" you said in quiet shock. Even knowledge of plurals briefly escaped you.

"She's a tiger-backed shark maiden," said Jenny. Mako meanwhile rolled to show off the striped markings along her back and massive tail. "they'll eat literally anything that fits in their mouth."

Mako preened, presenting her admittedly beautiful figure to receive praise and adoration.

"you realize that's not a compliment, right?" said Jenny.

Mako shrugged.

"Anyway, yeah. Mako likes cheeseburgers." Jenny chuckled. "you should see her pack them away at dinner time."

Mako smiled a mouth full of crooked teeth.

"Hey, Jenny. You mind getting her food?" you asked.

"yeah, no problem," she said. Mako watched her leave then turned to you.

When will we get a pov form our mermaid?

I hadn't planned on that, I thought it would detract from the experience. But I'd be open to the idea if Anon wants it.

>>3804638
maybe later when we are already on speaking terms and we can establish her personality

>>3804641
For that very reason I'd probably do a bit with Mako's POV before I do Midori. Mako's already verbal and is a lot more used to using her words.

>>3804565
So when'll we fuck our mermaid? Or atleast get her as our gf?

Midori's girl half is already on the higher side of average for a girl and mako's girl half is proportionate to a girl who stands over six feet.

You want an even bigger mermaid? A whale shark or orca?

It turns out that's literally the only art of that girl that exists, so I might scrap her for another tanned, well-muscled tomboy in a tight racing suit.

noooo that one was perfect, no need for tan on my part
>>
>>3805027
Yup, although more as a background character/s then a romance option, just to show how diverse the species is.

You weren't sure where it was safe to look. You didn't want to be the guy who got caught staring at fishtits. Even though it had to be said Mako's pair were as perfect as they were massive. A small voice in the back of your head pointed out that with boobs like that she'd be able to nurse many children should you choose to impregnate her. You tried to ignore that thought for now.

As an alternative to staring at her boobs you tried looking her in the eye. Big mistake. If you did that you could see her teeth. Her many, many teeth. Your mammalian hide brain wanted to run and hide at that.

"So, uh... Wanna play fetch?" you asked, looking around her tank for a ball.

"Catch," mako pitched a nerf football with a set of deep tooth marks on it to you. Or more accurately at you. She launched it at your head. And with cannons like she had the ball fit you like a freight train.

Mako doubled over with creaking guffaws and clapped. "Okay?" she asked once she was able to speak again.

"yeah," you grunted. You tested the balance of the ball and chucked it back to her. She darted sideways and snatched eye ball from the air with a smile.

"so," mako tossed the ball back. "you. Jenny..." she scowled as she searched for the word. "banging?"

>nah, we're just friends
>Jenny? Me uh... Its... What was the question?
>why, you like her?

But the why together with this works too

"Why, you like her?" you said. There was a wall between her tank and where you stood and you were at least reasonably sure mako couldn't jump out of the water far enough to reach you.

The huge sharkmaiden shrugged and returned the ball. "she nice." she said noncommittally.

"That she is," you said. That wasn't even flirting, it was just a fact. Jenny was a hell of a nice person and you were sure she'd eventually make someone very happy.

You weren't sure if you wanted that someone to be you. You only knew that you didn't not want it to be you. And speaking of, you hadn't even tossed the ball when Jenny came meandering in.

"Hey mako," Jenny waved a small package wrapped in shiny foil paper.

"Cheeseburger!" mako giggled like a two thousand pound puppy and bolted to the edge of her tank. She moved so fast she drenched you with her bow wave. You were certain that if her massive fishtits hadn't smashed into the tank wall first and absorbed some of the impact she would have crashed clean through.

"just the one, okay?" Jenny tossed her the sandwich.

Mako's snatched it out of the air and gobbled it up whole, wrapping and all. She swallowed dramatically and rolled onto her back to idly tool around her tank. Her swimsuit might cover her gut, but you could tell the fish had abs.

"So," Jenny put her hands on her hips. "what'd you talk about."

"he loves you," said mako. "he wants you to have his babies."

You blushed. "no, that's..." you couldn't bring yourself to say it wasn't true. "I didn't say - -"

"relax," said Jenny. "mako's just trying to get a ride out of you. She's kind of an asshole."

"yeah!" cheered mako.

"you realize that's not a good thing, right?" said Jenny with a sigh.

"Don't care." mako preened.

"Hey," Jenny rocked on her heels. "so, I checked on Midori. Poor thing's out like a light. I was gonna let her sleep. Probably do the same. Want me to show you to your quarters?"

>yeah I'm a little tired myself.
>I want to play with mako more.

"yeah, I'm a little tired myself," you said with a stifled yawn.

Mako pouted for a minute and shrugged. "bye friend."

The two of you waved goodbye and Jenny lead you through the compound to your quarters. As trainers they'd made special accommodations for the mermaids. You rooms had... For lack of a better word a porch where the mermaids could swim right up to if they wanted. You had a door you could close if you wanted to keep them from your room proper through.

"so," Jenny paused. "that's my room. Yours is the next door down." she bounced on her heels and chewed her lip. After a moment she stood up on the balls of her bare feet and gave you a hug. "good night."

>huh her back, offer to hang out a bit more if she wants. The navy must have some movies...
