He sliced the air with his hand, cutting her off. “You must cease dying this very instant. Whatever must be done to get better, do it.”

Despite her resolve to stay stern, a grin crossed her face. He sounded like such a Mer. Her people, if they could still be called that, didn’t understand how life worked outside of the ocean waters.

  17. I agree with everyone else, the contrast between his sense of command and his obvious naiveté gives a wonderful insight into his character.

  20. Bossy but clueless--what a setup for comedy and drama both. The implied collision of worlds in the background just underlines it.

  25. Does she really have that power, or does he just hope she does? It's always moving when a strong man becomes weak over the person he loves.
