What Is He Wearing?

Saunders wishes he had a simple choice to make, like which t-shirt to wear. When I was writing Saunders’ Choice and getting to know his character, I asked myself what clothes this lost soul would wear (once he is able to manifest and not be dressed by Velvet). These t-shirts fit his style and depict key moments in his story.

What do you think? Do you recognize which scenes I’m thinking of?


Mermaid Velvet has always had a special fascination with the World. And studying its two-legged humans has given the aspiring comedian unique skills to make her audiences laugh. But when she saves a human who believes he’s drowning, she’s stunned by the magic that flows between them.

Saunders is trapped between two realities with no memory of his past. Lost in a strange, underwater domain, he comes face-to-face with an alluring goddess of the sea. When he disappears from her realm, he’s desperate to reunite with the entrancing beauty.

As Velvet continues to bring Saunders out of the darkness, her love for him grows along with her fear that his next disappearance might be his last. And as his memories slowly return, Saunders must decide if he’s willing to leave the World permanently for a chance to be with the mermaid he desires.

Can Velvet and Saunders overcome his terrible fate and sink into each other’s perfect arms?

Her hand felt solid in his. Holding hands. On their way to a comedy show. Is this a date?

Saunders didn’t want to spoil the experience, but he had to ask – “Why do we need to hold hands? Is it to anchor me here?”

The question flustered her. He could tell by the way she froze where they were and wrinkled her brow. “I – I don’t like how much I don’t know. I used to think I was a knowledgeable creature, but your questions have been stumping me. Why would you need to be anchored?”

That wasn’t what I asked. Why doesn’t she answer the question? He waited, watching her.

They hadn’t moved far from the ship graveyard. The water was warm around him. The bottom of the ocean would be cold if it wasn’t a dream. And he’d be dead. Maybe this was the afterlife.

Holding hands in the silence started to feel awkward. She must have agreed because she released his hand.

“I guess we could swim to the club together like this.” She clasped her hands together and held them at her bare midriff. Her bottom lip trembled.
