She was the prettiest girl in her village until a jealous swamp witch cursed her. For a month, she lay at the bottom of the bay, a tangled pile of miserable tentacles. But she consoled herself that at least no-one would ever recognize her: She could start a new life, pretend to be something else, to be someone else, and no-one would ever know that the monster in the bay had once been the prettiest girl in the village.

But, finally daring to explore the bay, she found a lost mirror, and she learned the awful truth: All would recognize her, and forever see the shame of her curse.

MerMay? Close enough. I'm gonna count it, okay? My goal's to get to ten for the month, and she's number seven.
