Thinking of beautiful Libi, Sylvan Seahorse's mind went mushy and he drifted into her.
"Hello," she said.
Heart pounding, he feared his eyes would pop out. He was tempted to let a current take him.
"You l-look nice," Libi stuttered.
Hope flowed through Sylvan. "And you're beautiful." Seeing her eyes light up, he sang of his admiration and fear of rejection, the gleaming waves echoing his message.
Bubbles rose from Libi's mouth as she warbled of shyness. Worry she'd be rejected.
Sylvan and Libi's bodies changed colors as they danced and twirled in eddies. Entwining their tails, they floated away.
