You don't know who gentled the water, or why

They've spent too much time exploring the coastal cliffs.

The tide's come in with strong and dangerous currents. They're trapped overnight on a tiny rock island.

Dusk has fallen.

Arthur moves around, studying their little world.

Half-asleep, Merlin suddenly senses malevolent magic.

Arthur, tense and still, now stands staring into a tide pool, its surface smooth as glass.

"No!" Merlin pounces, pushing Arthur aside. "Never look at your reflection in one of those!"

There's a splash. Angry ripples cross the pool. Merlin glimpses a long fish-tail, and an eerie-sweet voice whispers; "Damn! I nearly had him, too!"
