"What is this place?"
"This was my mother 's house, before she and my dad were married. When she died, my dad forgot about it. It 's my hideaway now."
"This is what you wanted to show me?"
"Yes, one day I 'm going to live here."
"That sounds wonderful."

"This was her room, it 's mine now."

"What is this place?"
"The mermaid 's rock. My favorite place in the whole world."
"We have a mermaid rock too!" "Yes, we do."
As the sun slipped behind the ocean they swam back through the first hole into the cave but Ella quickly stopped short.
"Wait, James, watch the walls when the light hits us under the water okay?"
"If you say so."
When the moon hit the water they dipped their heads under and looked at the walls. A green glow surrounded them brightly before the moon passed and the light faded away.
They slipped out to the boat and paddled to shore. The moment the boat slipped to the sand she grabbed her things and ran inside. James hopped out and followed her.
"Where are you going?"
"I 'll tell you if you can catch up with me!"
With that he started sprinting to meet her and in the end they stumbled side by side onto the roof laughing and pushing. They collapsed into a heap of laughs.

They worked on cleaning up and putting everything back in place.
Ella turned the corner to see James watching her.
"What?"
"Will you come here a second?"
"Of course, what 's wrong?"
She walked over to him and he enveloped her in his arms. Then, he suddenly let go and went down on one knee.
“What are you doing?!"
"Ella…"
"Hold on!"
"I know were too young to get married, so I wanted to ask you to marry me later and wear this until you 're ready."

"Yes."
"What!?"
"Yes, I say yes."
"I love you."
"I love you too."
"That was a beautiful story mommy."
"Thank you. That 's how your father and I fell in love. See, I still wear the ring."
"Can I see the inside?"
"Sure."
