Almost before the words were out of my mouth I regretted saying them. I mean, come on. I was potentially dooming myself to who knows what fate, and for what? Originally I had planned to have some random transformations or whatever happen, and then change back after a week or so, but I had made the wish so vague anything could happen, and I forgot to put the end clause in. Panicking, I opened my mouth to finish the wish, but found words being pushed out of it without any thought or desire on my part.
"I wish that all human beings are now mermaids. I wish that 90% or more of the Earth's surface is covered in oceans 100 feet deep or shallower, and that the Earth's flora and fauna types will change to reflect that. I wish that Karyn and I are more than friends in this world, and she will believe and remember when I tell her about the wish. Finally, I wish that in this alternate world, even if I don't have the stone I will posses a source of magic of comparable power."
After the words had left my mouth I was left sitting there dumbfounded at what I had done. The world and everything I knew was about to be turned upside down. It was difficult to decide which part of it was the worst. Sure I would still have Karyn by my side, whatever more than friends meant, but at what cost. No, I defiantly know which part was the worst. I had said mermaids, not merpeople. So the one guaranty was that I was going to be a girl.
