Mermaid stories aren’t always happy.
I know that when we think of mermaids, the first thing that comes to mind is the story of Ariel and how she fell in love with a human. Her tale also had a nice conclusion because they got married and fell in love. However, in truth, the original story on which Ariel is based was much darker than the Disney movie. Ariel transformed into foam at the conclusion of the original tale. I realise a lot of people are already aware of this, but I wasn’t until recently.
And even while I adore mermaid tales, there aren’t many mermaid-related movies available nowadays. Certainly not ones that are any good. Therefore, it is always pleasing to watch artists bring their stories to life through distinctive and lovely artwork. Lily May steps in at this point. This is the tale of a mermaid named she. She does fall in love with a human, as you might imagine, but the story has more turns than you may anticipate.
The art style is what drew me in but the story is what kept me from stopping.
This is May, the mermaid that lives in Lily Lake.
She found a human drowning so she tried her best to save him.
However, some other humans saw her and wanted to capture her for their amusement.
She tried her best to run away but they weren’t letting it go.
They finally managed to catch her and there was nothing she could do.
As it turns out, the guy from the beginning was in on it as well and was only faking.
So she was brought in and kept in captivity for a long time.
When he realized that what he had done was wrong, he tried his best to free her.
He brought her to her home, Lily lake and she was quite happy.
However, he was shot along the way which left May devastated.
But she wasn’t about to let him pass away and she had powers that could bring him back.
After all, his man had saved her in the end.
And so he lived because of her.
We owe Andy Ivanov, a resident of Ukraine, praise for this lovely tale. He posted the first chapter of this mermaid tale quite some time ago, and he didn’t write the second chapter until many people began to demand it. This undiscovered gem really gained a lot of attention and earned Andy more than 370k followers, which is an accomplishment in and of itself. He also has a lot more illustrations in the works, which you can see straight on his Instagram account. However, this isn’t the only thing he draws.
But the story doesn’t end there as there is a second part as well.
She brought him back to life.
And he was quite thankful to her so she brought him to a secret place.
After all, the others were still hunting her.
So he followed her to a place that hopefully no human could come.
And she showed him her heart, the lily that was now a part of him as well.
But the hunter found them again and waned the treasure of the Lily.
But this time, the guy stepped up.
And fought the hunter so he couldn’t hurt her.
However, it was already too late and she was soon fading away.
Until all the life was sucked away.
But he knew that a part of her was within him.
So he did the only thing he could think of.
And she opened her eyes as a human.
That is how the story ends for now.
