Haha, that story has been written and I cannot change that. But of course she could be some completely different mermaid... Anyway, don't be sad! While her body becomes sea foam, her soul leaves with some kind of air spirits. If I remember correctly, she will earn immortality for her soul after she does good things for 300 years.
yes that's the ending..when i was a kid i used to think..oh good so she didnt just go away...something good happened to her...but now i understand it's the part added so that as kids we wudnt cry of her death ...i still feel so sad when i read the story.....but yes she can be another mermaid.... but truly she is very very beautiful ... i sure bet she is very intelligent one too
Try to see the 'good' things of that story. For one, she was able to choose what she wanted to do in the end. And second, to love somebody so much that you would die for him must be a very very much intense feeling that is precious itself. I think many of us cannot even imagine what this is like. Perhaps parents would die for their kids, but I have nobody in my life that I feel so much for. When I was a kid I was sad because she died but somehow now it is different.
