"Come on Marty. We've been out here for hours. Let's just go home already." A teenager said as he watched his friend fish.
The two friends decided to go on a fishing trip to Senecaville Lake in Ohio, after they made it their mission to collect data from everyone known lake in the Tri-state area. They've been to all of Indiana's lakes and now made their way to Ohio.
"Just a few more minutes, Dan. I have a feeling I'll catch something." Marty said as he continued to watch his bobber. After 5 more minutes, Dan was getting angrier. He reeled in his line and began to pack up.
"I'm done. Let's go." Dan said.
"Fine…we can g-" Marty said as he was interrupted by a pull on his line. "I've got something!" He said as he stood up.
"Reel it in! Come on!" The other friend said as his mood changed.
Before he could reel in his line, whatever was pulling on the line pulled him off the boat.
"Marty? Where'd you go?" Dan yelled as he lost his friend underwater.
A few minutes later, Marty rose from the water.
"What happened?" Dan asked.
"T-t-t-the fish…it wasn't a fish…" Marty said shaking at what he saw.
"Well what was it?" Dan asked as Marty swam back.
Before reaching the boat, Marty was dragged back underwater. Dan jumped in after him but was quickly dragged underwater as well.
Dean and Sam Winchester were driving down I-71, coming from Pittsburgh, where a Shapeshifter terrorized the hillside.
"Dean, where the Hell are we?" Sam asked as he woke up.
Dean was too busy listening to some AC/DC and didn't hear him.
"Dean! Where are we?" Sam asked as he turned the volume down.
"Good morning, sunshine. We're in Ohio. You hungry?" Dean asked as they continued to drive.
"Yeah, I guess I can eat." Sam said as he sat up.
They pulled into a diner off I-71 and parked the car. The two walked inside and sat down in the both next to the window. As they quickly glanced over their menus, a young and excited waitress approached them.
"Hey there. Are you two ready to order?" She said, with a voice of an angel. Sam was too distracted by her looks.
"Hi, yeah. I'll have the omelet, extra bacon. Sausage on the side and some coffee." Dean said as he looked up at her, not falling for her looks like Sam was.
"Okay, and for you, sweetie?" She said as she looked at Sam.
"I, uh…I'll have the same thing." Sam said as he looked away.
"Okay, it'll be ready shortly." The waitress said as she finished writing down their order and walked away.
"Dude she is hot!" Sam said, in a childish way.
"Yeah…yeah. Little bro has a crush on a waitress. What else is new?" Dean said as he looked at their book for their next assignment. "Whoa, check it out, Sammy." Dean said as he turned the book towards Sam.
"What? Mermaids? You actually believe in Mermaids?" Sam said with a laugh as he picked up the book.
"Sure, why not? We've killed weirder things then that." Dean said.
"Yeah, but Mermaids are a myth. Just like Bigfoot and Unicorns." Sam said as he continued to look at the book.
"Hey, Bigfoot's out there somewhere and there could be Unicorns too. But in any case, look at the report. Marty Sullivan and Dan Merrian went missing while they were on their trip to Senecaville Lake. That's only 50 miles from here and it's marked by dad." Dean said as he whispered. The waitress brought them their food.
"Thank you." Sam said as she walked away. "Okay, we'll go check it out later. And by the way, Bigfoot doesn't exist." Sam said as he closed the book and started eating.
"I'm going to punch you if you say that one more time." Dean said as he began eating too.
"Bigfoot's not real!" Sam said, mocking his brother. Dean reached over and punched his brother in the arm.

After they finished their breakfast, Dean and Sam headed to Senecaville. After 50 miles of Dean's awful 80's rock, they arrived at the park. Sam quickly changed into a suit and tie as Dean parked the car.
"I'll go find the park ranger. Meet me when you're done." Sam said as he got out of the car.
"Alright Sammy." Dean said as he got out of the car and started changing into his suit and tie.
"Excuse me sir." Sam said as he approached the park ranger.
"Yes, can I help you?" The ranger said.
"Yes you can. I'm Special Agent Bragston with the FBI. We've received reports of 2 missing men that were last seen here at the lake." Sam said as he flashed his fake badge. "My partner will be with us shortly."
"Of course, Special Agent. Yeah, two fishermen disappeared about a week ago or so. We've had local police search the perimeter, while divers searched the lake. There was no sign of either of the men, except for their boat." The ranger said as he led Sam to the lake. Dean quickly followed.
"So what do you think happened here?" Dean asked the park ranger as he buttoned his suit.
"It's a simple missing persons' case. I don't know." The ranger said.
"Come on. Two people don't go missing and only the boat remains." Dean said in a smart-ass tone.
"Well, I believe something's out there. But what branch of FBI did you say you were from?" The ranger asked.
"Just one more question. Have you seen any weird going on in the sea? Like someone or something peaking above the surface and quickly going down?" Sam asked, diverting the ranger's attention from Dean to him.
"What? No." The ranger said, seeming to hide something.
"Thank you sir." Sam said as he closed his pocket book and went back to the car.
"That ranger's hiding something. I know he is." Sam said as he put his suit in the trunk.
"What do you expect? Park rangers are always hiding something. Hell, I wouldn't be surprised if he was the one of caused the two dudes to disappear." Dean said as he started up the car.
"Look, I'm just saying that he knows something and isn't telling us." Sam said as he got into the car.
"Well, we'll come back tomorrow and investigate ourselves. Alright?" Dean said as he pulled out of the parking spot.
"Alright. Let's get some food." Sam said as his stomach rumbled.
Later at their motel room, while eating their carry-out, Sam began looking over his notes and other reports around this area.
"Hey Dean, listen to this. 50 year old man found dead on the banks of Senecaville Lake. 'Cops suspect foul play when they found the man's neck ripped by a fishing hook.' So far, all three have two things in common. They're single and they're men." Sam said as he ate part of his Chinese food.
"Ah, nothing's better then a little Chinese food." Dean said as he flushed the toilet and walked out of the bathroom.
"Really? Not even going to wash your hands? Whatever. Did you hear what I said?" Sam asked in disgust at his brother's poor hygiene.
"Yeah, yeah. Three lonely dudes. One gets shanked by a fish hook. Two go missing. What's the big deal?" Dean said as he sat down.
"What's the big-. Dean, this was your idea to come here. I'm the only one doing work right now." Sam said, amazed by his brother's stupidity.
"Okay, okay. You're right. So they are three lonely dudes. Tomorrow we'll go do some investigating. Alright?" Dean said as he hopped into bed. Sam closed the book and went to bed as well. The two brothers quickly fell asleep.
"Winchester…Sam Wiiiiinnnnchester." A voice said in Sam's head. "Sam…come to the lake. Join me…JOIN ME!" The voice said as it appeared to be in the room.
Sam sat up, sweating. He looked over at his brother, who was snoring like a boar.
"What the Hell was that?" Sam said to himself as he went to the bathroom. He splashed some water in his face and looked into the mirror, where he saw the reflection of a woman, similar to the waitress at the diner. When he turned around, no one was there. "Weird…" Sam said as he did a double take and went back to bed.

Sam woke up early next morning to get started on the case. He quickly took a shower, brushed his teeth, and got dressed. Before Dean woke up, Sam took his car keys and left.
He drove all around the Senecaville, looking for any leads, until he came across an old fisherman on the docks. The man had a long white beard and held a fishing hook in his hand.
"Ok, if it's a Mermaid, it's a homicide." Sam said in his head as he approached the man.
"Hello sir. I'm Sam with the Columbus Dispatch, covering the murders on this lake. Do you care to comment on what's been going on here?" Sam said as he approached the man with his pad and pen.
"No. Three people disappear around the lake. What's the big deal?" The man said, oblivious to the fact that it's a possible triple homicide.
"Well, have you noticed anything weird going on by the lake? Anything strange?" Sam asked as he changed his angle.
The man startled for a second. His eyes grew wide and sweat began to roll down his face.
"You…you wouldn't believe me if I told you." The man said as he faced the lake, going back to what he was doing before.
"Try me." Sam said as he stepped closer.
The man whispered something under his breath.
"Sir, what did you see?" Sam said more forcefully.
"Mermaids, alright? I saw mermaids in the lake." The man said, waving the fishing hook.
"Thank you for your time." Sam said as he backed away from the man and went back to his car.
"Damn reporters. Never know when to stop asking questions." The man said.
As he continued his work, he heard an alluring sound coming from the water. Before realizing anything, a woman rose to the surface. She was a young Caucasian woman with brown hair and brown eyes.
"Come to me." The woman said as she signaled for the man to come with her.
Without hesitation, the man jumped in and swam out to the woman. Just as he made it to where she was, the woman was gone.
"What the He-" The man said as something brushed against his leg and pulled him down.
The man struggled in the water, until he gave up when he saw what was pulling him. The woman that had called for him was pulling on his leg. He let out a smile, thinking that she was only playing. His expression quickly changed as her face changed. Her hair turned into a green color, while gills popped out of her neck. Her mouth grew larger and fangs formed. The man could see her tail flapping in the back. He tried to scream, but the water quickly filled his mouth. The monster screeched and slashed his throat with her now-grown claws, and ripped his head clean off. The man's lifeless body floated up to the top, while the creature fled with the man's head.
"Well the man looked scared. I'll go back and talk to him lat-Ow. What was that for?" Sam said as he rubbed his arm from where Dean just punched him.
"That's taking my car while I was asleep. She's my baby." Dean said as he sat down in his seat, looking at his food. "So the man really thinks he saw a mermaid?" Dean asked as he mixed his eggs and sausage.
"Yeah. At first, I thought he was the murderer because he had a fish hook, but when I asked if he saw anything weird, he started acting very strange." Sam said as he drank his coffee.
"Well, let's go get him." Dean said, thinking that the man was the mermaid.
"Dean, he's not the mermaid. He doesn't fit the basic profile of a mermaid." Sam said as he took the book out. "Mermaids are seen as brunette women with enchanting songs with a fish smell to them. That man was anything from enchanting and smelled like crap." He said as he closed his book.
"Alright, we'll go back tonight and check it out." Dean said as he continued to eat.

Thank you for reading this
Sam and Dean pulled up to the lake as the sun set over the tree canopies. What was more eerie then the way the sunset hit the lake was that fog rolled in and sat on the top. Dean signaled to Sam that there was a boat sitting on the docks, ready to go.
"Dean, are you sure we should take this?" Sam asked as he stood on the dock, watching his brother sitting in the captain's chair.
"Sammy, do you want to find your mermaid or not?" Dean said as he fired up the boat. The motor was loud in the quiet Ohio evening.
"Well yeah-" Sam said as he was interrupted by his brother pulling out of the docks. "Wait!" He said as he jumped into the boat.
"There. No going back now." Dean said as he turned on the radio. "Here we go." Dean said as he began to rock out to Headstrong by Trapt.
"Hmm, fitting. I didn't think this was your type of music." Sam said with a small laugh.
The two continued to ride out, until the fog was too much for them to go any farther. The sound of the wake hitting their boat could be heard as well as a thump.
"What was that?" Dean asked as the thumping sound could be heard next to his side of the boat. He peeked over and let out a small yell.
"What? What is it?" Sam asked as he stood up.
Dean pointed over the edge and saw what he screamed about. A decapitated body floated and slammed against the boat.
"Well, there's our fisherman." Sam said, recognizing the outfit that the body was wearing.
Just as they sat down, the sound of singing could be heard what seemed like ten feet away.
"Dean, do you hear that?" Sam asked as he, again, stood up.
"Yeah, way a head of you." Dean said as he cocked his sawed off shotgun.
"Winnnnnnchester!" A voice came out from the fog.
"Come on out, you ugly ass bitch!" Dean shouted.
"Dean, don't provoke her. You don't know what she's capable of." Sam said, opening the book. "She'll rip you to shreds." He said.
Just as he finished, a woman arose from the waters. She looked exactly like the waitress at the diner and the woman that was in the mirror.
"Hey there hot stuff." She said as she looked at Dean.
"This is your mermaid? She's kind of hot." Dean said as he looked at Sam.
Before realizing it, she quickly transformed into her green, fanged form. Sam's jaw dropped.
"What, Sammy boy? Can't handle the ladies?" Dean said as he turned and faced the mermaid. "Whoa. You can have her." He said as he took a step back, pointing the gun at her.
The mermaid let out a large growl as it jumped onto the boat and charged toward Sam.
"Sammy, look out!" Dean said as he fired his gun at the beast.
*BANG* the bullet shot out of the gun, making contact with the beast. It had no effect. The mermaid continued to walk towards Sam.
*BANG* another bullet shot out of the gun, stunning the beast as it collided with her head. The mermaid flipped over the edge of the boat and fell into the lake.
"Go!" Dean told Sam.
Sam quickly sat into the captain's seat and drove the boat quickly away. He headed back to the docks and fled to the car.
"What the Hell? Why didn't bullets work on them?" Dean yelled as he sat in the driver's seat.
" I don't know! You were too busy checking her out." Sam said as he looked back at the book. "It says that we have to get her out of water and on land in order to kill her." Sam said, thinking of a way to her out.
"Hmm a fish out of the water." Dean started laughing as he pulled out of the parking lot.
"Yeah, yeah. Real funny." Sam said as he rolled his eyes his brother's attempt at a joke.
Dean looked in the rear view mirror and saw the mermaid stick her head out of the water. She transformed back into a normal woman.
"I'll be back for you later, bitch." Dean said in his head.
Later that night, Dean began tossing in his sleep. He kept picturing the mermaid hopping onto the boat.
"Deeeeeeeannnnn. Deeeeeaaannn Winnnnnnchester. I'm going to rip you to shreds. Your head is going to be mine!" A voice said in his dream.
Dean woke up, sweating.

Aw thank you for reading this
Dean sat up in his bed, still afraid of his dream. He looked over at his brother, who was snoring like a wild animal. Laughing a little, he went back to sleep. The next morning, the Winchesters woke up and got dressed. Heading to breakfast, Sam started thinking of ways to draw the mermaid out of the water.
"So what's the game plan, Sammy?" Dean asked as he mixed his eggs and sausage.
"I don't know…Wait, I've got it. What if we use bait?" Sam asked as he looked up from the book.
"Bait? I know she's a fish and everything but I think she's smarter then to fall for a worm on a string." Dean said with a laugh.
"Not that kind of bait. She targets single men, right? Well what if we use one of us?" Sam said as he took a sip of his coffee.
"Well, she's obviously after you, so it's only fitting that you be the bait." Dean said as he started eating.
"What? Why me? I mean you're single too!" Sam protested.
"Yeah, but without me, you'd be dead." Dean said.
"With you, I'd be dead." Sam said under his breath as he took another sip of his coffee.
After breakfast, the two went back to the motel and checked out. They stopped by a local gun shop to pick up various ammunition and shot guns. Dean drove towards the lake, while Sam slept for a few minutes. After 45 minutes of driving, Dean parked his car next to the lake front.
"Alright, I'll tie myself to the tree while you take cover in the trees." Sam said as he walked over to a maple tree.
Dean nodded his head and started climbing an oak tree 10 feet away. Minutes turned to hours as the day went on. Around 7 o'clock, as the sun set over the canopy, the eerie fog rolled in. Sam, who was vigilantly looking out for the mermaid, yelled at Dean to wake up.
"What?" Dean said as he scrambled and fell out of the tree.
"Quickly, hide behind the tree!" Sam yelled as he looked back at the lack.
Dean quickly jumped behind the oak tree, cocking his shotgun. After a few minutes, the woman's head appeared out of the water.
"Sam Winchester. Either you have a death wish or just lonely." The mermaid said as she approached him on the bank.
"Why don't you come and find out for yourself." Sam said cleverly.
The mermaid let out a snarl and moved towards him faster. Finally she made it to the lake edge and climbed onto the shore. The mermaid transformed as she walked up towards him. Her fangs and claws grew as she continued to walk towards him.
"Now Dean!" Sam yelled.
Dean rolled around the tree and fired at the mermaid.
*Crack* the sound of the shotgun echoed throughout the woods. This time, the mermaid fell to the ground, wincing in pain as she crawled for the lake.
*Crack* Dean fired a second shot. This time, it killed the mermaid. With one final screech, the mermaid collapsed and ceased to move.
"Quickly, cut off her head and burn it!" Sam yelled, fearing for the worst.
Dean quickly ran to his trunk and grabbed an axe and a gas tank. With 2 clean swings, the mermaid's head came clean off. Lighting the whole body on fire, the smell of fish was unbearable.
"Good job, now untie me." Sam said with a smile.
"Nah." Dean said as he walked to his car and started it.
"Dean, this isn't funny. Dean, untie me now! DEAN!" Sam yelled as his brother backed out.
After a few minutes of trying to free himself, Sam sighed and started kicking the ground. Dean finally rolled his car back towards the lake front and untied Sam.
"Very funny, dick." Sam said as he got in the front seat.
"I thought it was." Dean said with a laugh.
The Winchester boys left the lake, when Bobby called them.
"Hey Bobby, what's up?" Dean said as he answered his phone.
"Hey Dean, I've got a case that I think you'll like." Bobby said.
"Well what is it?" Dean asked with anticipation.
"Bigfoot in Denver, Colorado." Bobby said.
Dean quickly hung up the phone and punched Sam.
"Ow! What was that for?" Sam asked as he held his arm.
"Told you Bigfoot was real." Dean said with a smile.
"Oh you've got to be kidding me!" Sam said as he rolled his eyes.
The Winchester left Senecaville and didn't look back.
