Waiting for Ships MD35

Once, a long time ago, a young mermaid chanced upon a handsome ship's captain and promptly fell in love.  Now she waits amidst the rocks and sea spray, waiting for his ship to return.  Meanwhile, she becomes impossibly more beautiful, her chestnut hair growing ever longer, her emerald and aqua fins and tail shimmering ever brighter in the sun. Does he still love her? Will he come back? The story is yours to finish.
