ENCOUNTER: First Encounter (1) by CoffeeAddictedDragon ENCOUNTER: First Encounter (1) by CoffeeAddictedDragon
Mana had seen mers before. Usually they were off in the distance, far away from the shallower areas where she liked to swim. They always seemed reluctant to come closer, for what reason she couldn't understand. Yes, Mana had seen many mers before, but not one this close...

Or in such bad condition...

It was one of her days out of the aquarium, Mahad was in a boat above her making sure she didn't get hurt or in trouble. It had been a normal swim when she had smelled something odd. Something like iron or another kind of metal... Blood.
She had followed the smell vigorously, curious to find what it was coming from. She was quickly reaching the edge of the shallows near where the sand dropped off into colder, deeper waters. Just before the slope, Mana saw him. A jet black mer, concealed within a cloud of his own blood.

She grimaced as she got closer, her dorsal fins twitching nervously. The smell of blood was now overpowering, but regardless, she was still intrigued. He was odd looking, definitely different from her. His scales were jet black with many violet hues along his body and the strangest looking hair she'd ever seen. As far as she could tell, he was still breathing weakly, but he wouldn't remain like that.

She'd need to retrieve Mahad...

I can't even... Good grief. A sloppy text version of how they "met" but they don't officially meet each other till after he wakes up in the aquarium.

Sharks should be closing in unless they are wary of mer but this much blood...  They should be closing in so hurry Mana!

This happened recently, and sharks bigger then a more are uncommon in the area he's at. Plus he's in a shallower area, so they'd be less keen to go there.

Hhaha oh well don't you worry! 'Sides, the blood cloud would be pretty intense, pretty much obscuring the injuries. Makes it realistic even though such realism does hide all that detail you put into it!

I think it's good!
And besides, I'd like to see how Atem/Yami acts when he finds himself in the aquarium. So it was a good way to start. Wonder how he got so hurt...?

He got into a major fight with a rogue mer.
Thanks! You can just call him Yami if it makes it easier. ^^
