...ou even think of going to see her?’ the panicing crab exclaimed. ‘How can you go against your father and your country like this?’
‘For love, Sebastian. Father doesn’t understand. He would kill Eric if he knew I loved him, and all because he’s a human, and I’m a mermaid.’
‘Humans are evil too!’ scremed the crab.
'I don’t believe that. And nothing you say can change my mind.’ And with that, Ariel flipped her tail, throwing off the crab and speeding away through the currents, heading as fast as she could towards the sea-witch’s cave. She knew that she was taking a huge risk. If her father found out that she loved a human, her life wouldn’t be worth living anymore. Her only hope was Ursula, the exiled sea-witch.
She looked back to see if the crab and her fish friend, Flounder, were following her. She didn’t see them, but she didn’t slow down.
Eventually, she saw the cave where Ursula lived. She hesitated for the briefest of moments before swimming inside.
‘Welcome, my dear.’ Ursula said. ‘I’ve been expecting you.’
‘How did you know I was coming?’ asked Ariel.
‘Well my dear, I’m a sea-witch. I know lots of things, such as why you have come to me today.’
‘Then you know what I came to ask, but can you do it?’ asked Ariel.
