True to her word, Ariel prepared herself for the festival. She combed her hair and put a bloem in her hair for her ornament. She looked meer beautiful than ever, and the other mermaids envied her when she entered into the Mistress' royal hall. Citrine, Vermillion, and Noire, the three mermaids who jeered at her when they bathed at Misty Falls, wanted to approach her and gave her meer annoying digs, but Ariel wouldn't let them. She was quickly surrounded door the mermen, who thought her the prettiest mermaid in the festival and did not want to lose a chance of talking to her.
