St. Clair - Rose Christo
""You know what I like about The Little Mermaid?"

A smile spread slowly across my lips. I forgot to shake my head.

"She's mute. She traded her tongue for legs. She can't talk to anyone, even when her sisters come and visit her at the surface of the sea. She can't talk to the guy she loves. But she doesn't need to talk for people to see how good she is. She dances for the prince, even when he marries someone else. She can't bring herself to kill him, even though it's the only way she can go home to her family. She's got the best heart. It doesn't matter that she can't speak. Everybody knows it."

He touched his fingertips to my cheek. To the birthmark on the side of my fave.

"Everybody knows it.""
