Sidgeno Mermaid AU anon fic
<< [Chapter 2/?] >>
It’s not until the morning when he’s looking over the pictures again when he notices the same figure in the water that he saw the night before.
The diner in town opens at five.
Geno gets there at 5:30 and rolls his eyes at how chipper the waiter sounds when he tells him to “take a seat wherever you like, I’ll be right with ya.”
His name tag says Jake and he doesn’t bat an eye at his sullen look when he pour his coffee and puts down the menu.
He’s young, fresh out of high school, maybe, and he doesn’t look like he knows who Geno is at all.
Geno’s already made up his mind to tip him very well.
“You’re the one that moved into that shack down by the beach, aren’t you?”
He coughs as the coffee goes down the wrong way. It burns his tongue.
“How you know?”
“This is a tiny, little island. Everyone knows everything. Is it haunted?”
“I’m Geno and it’s not haunted,” he grumbles. “Not a shack.”
“The walls are falling in on themselves and it looks haunted.”
