I’d just polished off my sixth Budweiser and was half-asleep when I felt someone plop down in the sand beside me – a beauty with sea-green eyes and white surfer girl hair that rippled like waves around her hips.
“Well, hello, beauty,” I said, staring into those mesmerizing eyes, “what’s your name and where the hell did you suddenly come from?”
“The name is Lorelei and I’ve just walked out of the sea.”
“Sure you did, baby,” I grinned, “and your old man’s name is Neptune, right?”
“I see you know my family,” I think I heard her say, but I can’t be sure; I was too busy staring at the webbing between her toes.
