Chapter 6.32

Liam

I was getting some research done on the new object one of my collegues discovered when Zack knocked on my office door at home. He walked up next to me and said, “Why are you being a royal dickhead to Charlie?”

Charlie? Oh, he meant Charlene. “Come on, Zack. You know I’m not supposed to talk about my students. That’s between me and her. And anyway, it’s not your problem.”

“It becomes my problem when I can’t see my girlfriend because she’s consoling her best friend since an evil professor took away her privileges to go on some expedition. An expedition that was going to help her find an old magical relic.”

“Oh please! That expedition is just for entry level students. We’re not going to find anything of significance. It’s just some old bones we placed in the sand and they use the dig techniques to find them. It’s really no big deal.”

“If it’s no big deal then let her go. I think you’ve been too hard on Charlie this whole semester. What gives? Do you like her or something?”

“Like her? Oh God, now you’re sounding like Mother. No. I don’t like her. She’s a student. A kid.” A strong pain pierced my temples. Charlene Darby was getting on my last nerve at this point. Who did she think she was talking to Myla and trying to needle me into letting her go through my brother?

He crossed his arms. “You need to figure it out. Letting her go on the expedition would make my life easier, Liam. The poor girl is beside herself crying and feeling like a total loser. And she wouldn’t belike this if you didn’t make her feel so badly about herself. This shit isn’t right.”

I shook my head. “Whatever, Zack. You don’t know what went down and how irresponsible she is. She’s a spoiled child. No. She’s not going. You can tell your girlfriend that you coming in here to pressure me didn’t work. Now if you don’t mind, I’m going to bed.”

I strode out the door to my room.

Fuming, I pulled my sheets back, worrying I wouldn’t be able to sleep. Today had been a nightmare already. I just wanted to fast forward to the next day and put it behind me.

It was times like these when I missed Ginny the most. I was so fucking lonely, it stabbed through me. Was I being too hard on Charlene? Why did I care how she acted so much?

I drifted off and suddenly found myself under water, gaping at a mermaid.

“Hello, babe.” The mermaid smiled at me.

It was Ginny!

Somehow I was flailing in the middle of the ocean and I could breathe. It was such a strange feeling. And exhilarating.

“I’ve got a bone to pick with you,” Ginny said. It was as if we were really in the air except the water felt cool and wet on my skin.

“Ginny!” was all I could get out. I wanted to hold her so badly.

Sweeping my arms around her, I tucked my face in her hair and neck, wanting to never let go.

“Ginny, honey, I’ve missed you so much.”

From there, we were catapulted onto a dock somehow. In the back of my mind, I knew this was a dream but it felt so real and so right, I never wanted to wake up.

Stroking Ginny’s hand, I said, “I’m so glad you’re here. Where have you been?”

“Liam, I need to say good bye. I can’t be with you anymore. Not ever. You have to let me go.”

Bewildered, sadness flooded me, then Ginny grasped my head, pulling me closer to her. She kissed me with such tenderness, I wanted to bring her home and make love to her.

Then she pulled back just as suddenly. “You’re being too hard on that girl, you know. Liam, I want you to be happy. Bring her on the expedition.”

So confused, my dream self wasn’t even a professor so I didn’t understand who she was talking about. “What, Ginny? You’re not making sense.”

But she didn’t say anything. Flopping into the water, creating a huge splash, I watched helplessly as she swam away from me.

Instantly, I woke with a start. “No, Ginny! Come back!” I whispered.

And right then, I realized it was all a dream. But inside I felt the conflict. And the message. I needed to move on. Ginny was never coming back. And maybe dream Ginny was right. Maybe I should give Charlene one more chance.

  1. Ginny! 😭😭😭😭😭😭

    She made such a beautiful mermaid…what a shame Liam will probably never see her again. I wonder if she died, or something else happened to her. Something supernatural.

    Anyway, I’m glad Charlie gets to go on the expedition now! Can’t wait to see what disasters she creates…

    1. Rofl…disaster IS coming. Heh heh…

      And yeah. Ginny is SUCH a pretty mermaid. But Liam has to really say good bye and move on in order to gain true happiness.

  2. Ahh, too bad Zack is taken. What a catch he would be for Charlie. I’d switch ships right away, hehe.
    Liam! You’re supposed to have erotic dreams of Charlie not Ginny! Ginny was pretty as a mermaid. I wonder if she really became mermaid considering her childhood encounter with one. That would be a nice ending to her storyline. Better than throwing herself in the volcano for sure.
    Onto the expedition and more Charlie’s shenaningans! Soon, I’m hoping.

    1. Zack and Charlie would make a cute couple! He’s so thoughtful. And maybe he’d watch over her so she wouldn’t hurt herself. 😉

      But yeah…Liam is still hung up on Ginny but maybe he’ll heed the message of the dream?

      Ginny never threw herself into a volcano. lol…the rumor mill of a university! 😀 She’s gone and maaaaaybe she really IS a mermaid! We can always hope she’s swimming with another merman, making merbabies…cute ones.

      YES! Onto the expedition. And I will promise Charlie shenanigans galore. 😉

    1. Aww…yes, poor Liam. 😦

      And Ginny? Yes, by the end of the gen, we’ll find out what really happened.

      Lol…Charlie a rebound? She wouldn’t allow that. 😉

  3. Ohhh. Ginny! 😍😍😍. That was so bittersweet. It would be cool if Charlie found Ginny … dead or alive. It’d probably be dead. 😭😭😭. Regardless, maybe Ginny took over Charlie’s body so he could find her one way or the other. But Charlie’s big, whether or not she’s the end game or a means to the end, I can’t wait for the expedition to begin!

  4. Aww This was so bittersweet 😭 I’m glad to see Liam finally learning to let go, and maybe even open his heart again (whether romantically or otherwise!). I think he’s had his heart closed for a long time, to everybody. Thank you to Dream-Ginny got helping him open it again ❤️

    1. Good old Dream Ginny to the rescue!

      And yes, Liam has closed himself off for a long time out of protection. And Charlie is about to give him a hard time. 😉

    1. Hee hee! Ginny DOES look like the Little Mermaid! (I actually think she’s prettier but I’m biased.)

      Hmm…that theory has been bantered around a lot. Time will tell if I’m going to be that despicable to poor Liam. The guy has had enough tragedy in his life. Having to choose between two loves? That’s criminal. 😈
