They had come to terms with their new situation surprisingly well. Perhaps it was the daily ration of beer that was brought to them. Perhaps it was the noncommittal small talk they shared with their female keeper when she came to visit, who sometimes even leaned over the rim of the tub in her low cut dress with no fear of being pulled in by the three. Of course, many thought it a drastic means of dealing with the chronic sex addiction that had tortured these poor souls before the operation. But the three had willingly signed the release form the Danish doctors placed before them, and seemed content with their modified existence. Even the harshest opponents of the solution had to admit the men were kept in a humane fashion: The daily gourmet fish dinners they received were scrumptious and for recreation they were driven out twice a week to swim in the sea. Indeed, since the surgical transformation into mermen with sexless lower fish-torsos, life had become completely carefree.

The minute I looked at men in the picture I knew you'd imprison them;))))

LOL I have to say I got a chuckle out of this one. I never saw the mermen aspect coming at all.

This one was very hard to write, and written rather late in the evening, whereas many of the other stories were spontaneous, or mostly spontaneous. I was worried about not having anything to post in the morning. But I'm glad it worked out. Thanks for all the feedback, and feel free to let me know if something goes wrong, as well. I'll probably be the first to agree with you.
