or “Les deux frères” in french
« The legend says that the two brothers found an
injured mermaid on the beach one evening. They took
care of her and fell madly in love. In their madness,
they killed each other. The mermaid before returning
to the waves, begged Poseidon to leave them an
apparent form in memory of their passion.
