because sensible fisherman geno came to the maritimes because the fishing was good, and the money is better, but he doesn’t know that many people in town — he knows flower and vero, who run the local inn and know everyone, and james, who despite being an idiot is a fairly decent bartender, and paul, who rents out the cottage where geno stays
and it’s not that geno doesn’t have friends here in the village but there’s a certain quality of loneliness that comes of days out on the water, nothing but you and your boat and the sky up above you and endless waves, endless stretches of water like glass
so geno goes out and comes back and sells his catch and mends his clothes by the fire and drinks at flower’s inn and goes to bed alone, and he’s saving up money for his mama and papa back home so they can buy equipment for the farm but still
he’s just so lonely
but one day the older men say there’s a storm coming. “smell it on the air” they say, nodding to themselves, but geno needs the money, and he’s a strong sailor. he can make it out and back safely, he’s sure —
but then the storm does hit, and in the midst of the rain and the lightning and the waves geno’s boat capsizes, and he’s so certain he’ll drown that he’s almost resigned —
only he doesn’t.
at first, when the town doctor asks, he says — there was a man, he thinks. he remembers arms around him, dragging him to the shore, warm and strong.
but that’s impossible. there’s no way — nothing could live out there.
and yet, when geno goes out a week later, fully recovered but still slightly wary of the clouds out east, he swears he sees a man in the crest of the waves, dark-haired and serious, staring up at him through the water like glass. so he waves, because even if it is nothing, well. it never hurts to say thank you.
to geno’s shock, the man waves back — and then, he swims closer, head bobbing as he surfaces.
up close, geno can see that he’s almost beautiful, dark hair clinging to his head and eyes bright.
"i’m glad to see you’re alright," the man — the merman, because geno can see his tail, long and dark and scaled — says.
"yes," geno replies, too shocked to say anything else, and then he remembers his manners. "thank you for saving me."
"it was nothing," the merman replies. his smile is small and crooked and changes his whole face.
he makes to dive down again, but geno doesn’t want him to leave, can’t let him leave.
"what your name?" he asks, leaning over the side of his boat, as close as he can get to the water. "for next time i see you."
the merman’s smile grows, just a little. “sid,” he replies, and then he’s gone.
