Blue Tail is a young merman with a secret desire to walk on land like people do. In desperation to make his dreams come true, Blue Tail strikes a deal with the sea witch—she gives him legs, but for an undisclosed steep price.
Blue Tail is soon captured by a crew of hungry wolves on a ship. While Blue Tail should feel fear and terror, he instead feels something…pleasurable. And this only serves to attract the attention of Captain Wolf and his whole crew, putting his life at risk. What a price to pay for human legs!
Given Captain Wolf’s keeping an eye on Blue Tail, and keeping him safe from the crew, is he perhaps not the big bad wolf he appears to be? Could he offer Blue Tail his protection?
Of course, there’s a catch. And it could change Blue Tail’s life forever.
“From a physical proximity, to a shared experience, to a permanent attachment…” Blue Tail has just this hint from the sea witch to go by. These words may not make sense to him, but they definitely make sense to his destiny.
A destiny that could make room for another existence in his life.
Little Blue Tail and the Big Bad Wolf is an 8,000-word short story.
