A heartbroken boy rescues a beautiful girl from drowning...but can he really save her?

Draven isn't looking for a summer fling. Coral doesn't need attachments. But sometimes the riptide of attraction grabs us and pulls us under.

If you're a fan of The Little Mermaid by Hans Christian Anderson and other poignant tales, you'll like this story. If not, please take this as a warning. Sometimes, life is gritty.

This story is a novella first published in the anthology, LORE.
