Story Summary

A lovely modernization of the classic selkie myth. Jessie always thought the face of Neptune on her grandfather's clock looked just like her grandfather, with kindly spiderweb creases. But when her grandfather disappeared and the same kindly creases showed up on one of two dolphins playing in the waves, Jessie knew that her grandfather had returned to the sea to be with her departed grandmother.
