ENCOUNTER: Downhearted (6) by CoffeeAddictedDragon ENCOUNTER: Downhearted (6) by CoffeeAddictedDragon
The pod was beginning to settle down for the evening, mers assigned to be the guards took their posts and began patrolling, eyes bright and alert for leviathans or sharks. Tea was returning from her evening hunt, comfortably full and very tired, but she wasn't going to sleep quite yet. In her claws she held a fish tightly in her grip. There was someone she had to check on.

Ever since Yami's disappearance, Yugi had been searching for him. Day in and day out he'd swim up and down the area where he had last been seen, but to no avail. Yugi hadn't hunted for himself in ages, and could hardly sleep. Tea and the others had to remind him to eat and make sure that he did sleep, but regardless he kept looking.

Tea now swam up beside Yugi, who was now laying on the silt and sand like the rest of the pod, staring off into the distance. Noticeable bags had begun forming under his eyes, and his frills were low. "Hi Yugi." She chirped as she settled beside him, placing the fish close by. Yugi glanced at her and her body stiffened, he looked completely beaten...
"Oh Yugi..." Tea murmured and shifted closer. "Still no luck?" The Gold Midian shook his head, ear frills lowering even more. (if that was even possible.) "I've looked all over, Tea... I can't find any trace of him..." Yugi's eyes grew huge. "It's been two weeks... He... He can't be dead..." Tea shook her head vigorously. "Yami? Dead? No no no... You know him better then anyone else... Nothing can kill him." She said, trying to give a reassuring smile. It seemed to work a little, but his eyes still looked tired and worried. She sighed and curled her tail around him reassuringly. "I'll help you look for him again tomorrow okay? Joey and Tristan can help again too if you'd like."
Yugi glanced over at her and blinked. "Y-yeah... That'd be great... Thanks..."

"You're welcome. I know how close you guys are, and he's our friend too. Now get some sleep..."

Incase you're curious, Yugi is a Gold Midian like Mana, and Tea is a Common Zephree.

We needed to see how Yugi's taking his brother's absence. Needless to say it was worry then panic, then relentless searching and now a hint of doubt.
He'll pick up the search again, he won't give up.

I was debating on whether Yami was Yugi's best friend or brother XD but...thinking of how
close they are you would assume both X3 also the expression on Yugi's face really shows how empty he 
feels without Yami with him. Thank goodness Anzu is there to support him and try to keep him in good health.

It is indeed both, even though Yami is essentially adopted.
Yup, he really is worried about Yami. He'll usually vanish for at most a day or two, but never two weeks.
Anzu has most definitely got his back.

Yugi will be okay, he'll pick up confidence again soon, and it won't be long before he will be with Yami again.

OMG Yugi's expression... so CUTE! Even my heart melts. Yugi can do that! I love the worry smitten all over Anzu's face and the background is so very well done with its soft hues. The lighting adds to it emotionally as well as environmentally.

Ah thank you kindly my friend. ^^
Worrysome Yugi is pretty cute, but sad too.
I like Anzu, I wanted to put her in a better light then other people do. It's a shame she's usually portrait as a selfish and jealous individual...

Indeed, it is a shame that Anzu is shown in that way....really, who would not be confused about liking both a old childhood friend and then a spirit that shares his body?

CoffeeAddictedDragon Featured By Owner Jun 28, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yeah. Personally I feel that Yami is sort of a highschool crush with all the intensity of one as well. I mean, they are all hormone crazed teens. I like the idea that even into adult hood Anzu and Yugi would stick together. That's my ship though. To each their own.

Ah true.... those who are easy to stereotype. It is a shame.
But yes, such a revering and calm, sad, sweet scene. These kind of pics are particularly emotional.

Yup. Mostly people who see her as a threat to their TOP.

I'm glad the emotions transcended over well.
