This is [name_f]Ariana[/name_f] [name_f]Lyra[/name_f] [name_u]Brooke[/name_u]. She loves the sea and music. She doesn’t like the company of other humans. She likes to sit on a rock or stump of a tree and play her guitar and sing. In her previous birth, she was a mermaid named [name_f]Ariella[/name_f] and she lured men to the rocks with her song. However, she doesn’t know this in her present birth, but her present parents know it because a fortune-teller told them. They hide it from [name_f]Ariana[/name_f] because they think that she will do her mermaid things again and bring danger to the people, especially men. She has a beautiful voice and she looks pretty, so she might find out who she was in her last birth and bring danger to the people. Her parents try to stop her from finding it out, but at the end, she finds it out.
