Sorry about the header ads. It was either that or pop-ups. And I HATE pop-ups.

King Triton left, and Ariel began to cry. The sea witch’s eels, Flotsam and Jetsam, swam up to her. “We know somebody who can help you,” they said. “Somebody who can make your dreams come true. Come with us to Ursula, the sea witch.”|
Ariel looked at the broken statue, and thought about how much she loved Eric. “All right,” she said. She followed them out of the cave.
Sebastian and Flounder saw her going towards Ursula’s cave, and they followed her. Ursula’s cave was full of little weed creatures that tried to pull at Ariel as she went by. Ursula told Ariel that she would turn her into a human for three days. If Prince Eric kissed her before sunset on the third day, she would stay human forever. “But,” said Ursula, “if he doesn’t kiss you, you turn back into a mermaid – and you belong to me.”
Ariel thought for a moment. “I don’t have anything to pay you with,” she said.|
“You can give me your voice,” said Ursula.
Ariel was very afraid of Ursula, but she wanted to be human more than anything. So she agreed. Ursula made a spell to take her voice, and then she turned Ariel into a human. Sebastian and Flounder pulled Ariel quickly up to the surface, and then they began to help her to the shore.
