Be warned. These next children may frighten you with their looks, but do not be afraid. You will warm up to them, metaphorically speaking, once you get to know them. These children of mermaid and gulper eel come from the deep dark. What elements do you notice that help them survive in that darkness? Describe for me how you see, how you visualize, those faces, those great eyes that barely blink until they get to near to the surface. What could they eat down below that might sustain them, for all their size?
