  "You can never again become a sea princess. You will never get back your fish’s body. You can never go back to live with your sisters. the prince must love you so much that he will go away from his father and mother. If he does not marry you, you will die. The you will be changed to water in the sea."
  "I still want to become like the land people," said the little sea princess.
  "there is one more thing," said the old woman. "You now speak and sing very beautifully. When you are like the and people, you cannot speak and sing. You will not to be able to speak and sing."
 "But how can I make the prince love me if I cannot speak to him?" the sea princess asked.
  "Your beautiful body, the way you walk, and your speaking eyes," the old woman answered. "It will not be hard to make him love you. Do you still want me to make you like the land people?"
  "Yes," said the little princess.
  "Here is the magic drink," said the old woman. The little princess took it in her hand.
  She went away from the old woman’s house.
  She looked once again at her father’s house. There was no light in it: everyone was asleep. She did not want to go in. She was going away from her home for ever. She was very sad. She went into the garden and took a flower from each of her sister’s little gardens. Then she went through the blue waters, up and up.
  Before the sun came in the sky the sea princess went to the prince’s house. She drank the magic drink which the old woman gave to her. It ran through her body. Then it gave her GREat pain. She fell down and knew nothing more. When the sun came into the sky, she awoke. There was a burning pain in her arms and in her feet. But she saw the beautiful young prince standing near her.

  “你再也不能变成海公主,再也不能有你的鱼身体,再也不能回来和你的姐妹们一同生活了。王子一
定非常爱你,不惜离开他的父母。如果他不能和你结婚,你就会死去。然后你就会变成海里的水。”

  “我仍然愿意变得同陆地上的人一样。”小海公主说。

  “还有一件事。“老巫婆说,“你现在说话和唱歌的声音都很优美,当你变得和陆地上的人一样的时

  “如果我不能和王子说话,我怎么能使他爱我呢?”海公主问。

  “你有美丽的身材呀,你走路的姿态呀,还有你富于表情能说话的眼睛呀。”老巫婆回答,“你很容
易让他爱上你,你是不是还要让我把你变成象陆地上的人那样呢?”

  “是的。”海公主说。

  “这是具有魔力的药水。“老巫婆说。小公主把它拿在手里。

  她从老巫婆的屋子里走出来。

  她再一次看看她父亲的宫殿。那儿没有灯光,人人都入睡了。她不想进去。她要永远离开自己的家了

,她很难过。她走进花园,从每个姐姐的小花园里摘下一朵花,然后穿过蓝色的水,浮上去,浮上去。

  海公主游到王子的宫殿时,太阳还没有升起来。她把老巫婆给她的摩法药水喝了下去,药水流遍了她的全身,她疼痛难忍,晕倒在地上。太阳升起来的时候,她才苏醒过来。她的手臂和两腿火辣辣地痛。可
是,她看到年轻美貌的王子正站在她身旁。
