ENCOUNTER: Awakened (3) by CoffeeAddictedDragon ENCOUNTER: Awakened (3) by CoffeeAddictedDragon
He moved.

A single twitch of his claws. His fin.

Feeling was slowly returning to his body, unfortunately the more feeling he gained, the more pain he became aware of.
While he gaining awareness, his eyes still refused to open, and his own body was heavy and useless.
'Where am I... What time?...' somewhere in his muffled, drowsy mind he managed to form a coherent thought.
Slowly he raised his dorsal fin, feeling for the ocean's tide to tell him what time it was and where he was...

Yami's eyes shot open, and his mind snapped into wakefulness.

Wrong.

Something was VERY wrong.

Where was the tide?

Yami lifted himself up, fighting against the massive amount of pain that washed over him and looked around, panicking. The water around him was stagnant and suffocating. In a frenzy, he swam up towards the surface to try and get some baring as to where he was. What he saw next made him go from panicked to furious.

It was night. Around him was a concrete tiled floor, a large room with lots of big windows and a massive skylight. On the other side of the room he could hear the gentle lapping of another body of water and the faint flashing lights of human technology on the far side of the room.

He'd been captured by humans...


Mahad walked up to the door from the public exhibit and went up the stares to the private work area. Even before he opened the second door at the top of the stairs he could hear it, a loud howling caterwaul from inside the room. 'I highly doubt that's Mana... Leaves only one other candidate...' He thought with amusement before entering in.

"Guess who's awake..." Harry said in annoyance, trying to drown out their guest's unhappy yowling with a pair of headphones.
Mana, curious and a tad bit put off by the new sounds in the aquarium had come to the edge of the main tank. She looked at him questioningly, clearly confused. Mahad smiled reassuringly and pet her head as he passed. "It's alright girl, our guest is just throwing a temper tantrum..." Mana blinked over at the medical tank before slipping back into the main tank.
 
"Looks like the sedatives we gave him wore off..." Ishizu said, watching the medical tank. As Mahad walked over, he could see the water in the tank sloshing up over the edge as the mer inside lashed around and swam in circles. He had to admit, even injured the power in this mer was miraculous. "At this rate he'll reopen his wounds again..." Ishizu remarked. "Hopefully darky will tire himself out..." Mahad laughed. "Darky?"

"Well until we can either figure out his name or think of a better one, we call him darky. We can't just keep calling him 'him' or 'the mer.'"

Mahad chuckled and looked back at the tank. Curious, he walked closer. "Careful Mahad, his flip out has made the floor slippery with water." He nodded and walked over, keeping about 4 feet away. Even though the water was agitated, he could still see the Ebony Royal angrily swimming form one end to another, pushing off the walls and occasionally roaring at the top of his lungs to showcase his anger.

"You better calm down or you'll hurt yourself more..."
The mer froze and snapped to look and face him. For a moment the two made eye contact. Mahad was stunned, the mer possessed bright amethyst eyes. He would have expected him to have dull eyes, what with such injuries, but no. Sharp, angry eyes stared back at him before he was suddenly snapped out of his trance by a loud angry shriek from the Ebony Royal before he turned and dove deep into the corner of the tank. Mahad blinked and moved a bit closer, watching him. The mer had firmly planted himself on the bottom near the farthest wall from him beneath the agitated water's surface. Even from here he could see his spines shuddering in warning, his injured back arched, his tail curled protectively around him and teeth bared.

"Scary..." Ishizu muttered.

Mahad grinned and walked back over to the main tank. "Impressive... Scary or not, he's hurt and we're going to help him...

Man am I tired.I'm just gonna warn you, this is a lazy pass time thing so the text maybe sloppy and the way the story moves along may be a bit more rushed and amateur then what you may be used to like from TEOIC. (Speaking of which I AM working on writing chapter 5 so hang tight. ^^)

um....I'm of the understanding that 'Darky' is kind of a racial slur....

CoffeeAddictedDragon Featured By Owner Oct 10, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Oh I understand. In here it's simply because they don't know his name and he's an Ebony Royal, thus he is very dark in color on the tail.
It wasn't meant to be a slur in anyway, just a name until they learn his real one. 
I'm very sorry if I offended you or anyone else. It's a bit to far in the story to change it now, but it won't be used for that much longer.
Again, I'm sorry if I offended in anyway, it's just a name instory.

This actually is my favorite pick in the picture series so far, so I'm glad you like it.
Angry Yami always seems easier to draw for some reason. Eye shape me thinks.

I don't blame him for acting the way he did. It can be scary to wake up in a place you don't recognize. The design for this is amazing. I love the furious look he has in his eyes. It is as if he wants to attack someone. Nice work.

You're welcome.True and feeling of being trapped is something that no one loves to feel. His expression is what shows his anger really well.
