ENCOUNTER: Introductions (8) by CoffeeAddictedDragon ENCOUNTER: Introductions (8) by CoffeeAddictedDragon
"Alright, so we're all in agreement right?" Mahad asked, gaze flickering from Ishizu to Harry and back again.

"Yeah.... Yeah I agree..." Harry muttered.

Ishizu nodded. "Yes. Darky is ready to be moved to the big tank."

The Ebony Royal was healing well, and it was about time to move him to a larger tank. The bandages would soon no longer be needed, and only stitches and and water resistant bio glue would be needed. It was agreed among themselves that Darky needed to start rebuilding his muscle mass and to be able to actually swim. It was apparent in his behavior that he was becoming way more restless then usual. True, there was a risk his wounds would reopen, but he wouldn't bleed enough to be cause for any real concern.
2 and a walk weeks into having him, it was time to place him in the big tank.

"Everyone ready?" Mahad asked, approaching the water's edge so he could see the transfer up close.

Harry walked over to the computer and got ready to send the activation code, whilst Ishizu got the sedative dart gun encase something went wrong.

In between the medical tank and the main take, there was a small passage way blocked with two remote doors that could be activated at Harry's computer. It made it easier to get Mana in and out quickly. Now it would serve as Darky's passage into the bigger tank.

"We're ready Harry."

"Right. Sending the opening code."



Yami's ear frill twitched as he heard something mechanical clank on the far side of his tank. 'What now..?' He though in annoyance.
There was a moment of silence before something on the far wall moved. A door had opened. 'What in the...?' Yami narrowed his eyes skeptically, slowly inching forward. As he got closer, he caught a whiff of something from beyond it. Blinking, he opened his mouth slightly, allowing the water to pass over the glands in the roof of his mouth, tasting for the scent. 'Seaweed?... Sand... Another mer...'
Curiosity getting the better of him, Yami slowly moved forward, unaware of Mahad and Ishizu watching his every move. He kept inching forward until he was fully in the passage way. Suddenly, the passage behind his went shut with a loud KA-THUNK. Yami snarled, the space was too tight for him to turn back, so instead he ended up lashing around angrily. How foolish he had been to fall for something like this! Before he could do much else however, another door in front of him suddenly slid open. This time, he didn't move forward right away. He let the scents wash over him, waiting for some other trick. However, beyond it, he saw blue. He saw sand and open water, and coral and large rocks. 'What...? The... The ocean?' Yami didn't hesitate, he bolted out at high speed, an aquatic black bullet. "FREE!" He yowled as he glanced around this strange cove. He looked to his right and saw it! The endless blue ocean. He could go home. Yami turned and swam quickly out towards the ocean, overwhelming joy flooding into him.

As he got closer however, he noticed something odd. It was faint, very faint, but it was there. Yami slowed down as he got closer, his hopes sinking like a stone. A reflection...

Glass...

There was glass between him and the ocean. He hadn't been freed, he'd just been moved into a bigger tank.
Yami slowly bore his teeth as anger rose again in his being, his faint reflection snarling along with him. He turned away, he couldn't bare to stare out into the ocean. What a cruel mockery, to be placed from one prison into one with a view of his past freedom in sight and only a few inches away.

Yami growled and swam away from the glass.
So his escape would take a bit longer...

At least this tank appeared to have more opportunities.


Mahad watched from above, sighing. "Okay. He's in.


Alright Mana. Your turn..."


It was certainly much MUCH bigger then the med tank.

At least they had the decency to give some hiding places... Rocks and coral stretched up almost all the way to the top of the tank, most of it on the was where the entrance to the med tank as. On the bottom there was soft yellowish sand, seaweed and plants waving gently in the manufactured tide. Fish of all kind swam around form one end to another and back again. Yami continued to investigate, still annoyed that he was still stuck here. He suddenly felt as though he were being watched. His frills raised and he glanced to his right. Beyond a large, long panel of glass he could see movement. Yami narrowed his eyes then hissed as he realized that a dozen or so humans were watching him, pointing fingers and gaping. He backed up, immediately unnerved by the fast that he was outnumbered.
He hissed, frills raised and eyes wide. 'Why is there an entire pod here!?' He continued backing up, he was so unfamiliar with this place, he didn't know how to react.

There was a giggle behind him.

"Why are you all puffed up?"

Yami spun around, yelping in surprise.

The female gold midian from before swam from her hiding place cautiously, all the while giggling at his surprise.
"Sorry! I didn't mean to scare you..." She said, trying to calm her giggling.
Yami grimaced and blushed a bit. "I-I'm not scared! You simply startled me..." He then blinked as he recognized her.
"Hey... It's you..." The maid blinked and shrugged playfully, swimming a bit closer. "Yup. Me! I'm the... Oh... What did Mahad call it...? Resident mer. Yes that's it!" She then smiled brightly. "I'm Mana! Who are you?"

Yami blinked and relaxed a little bit, despite the fact that there were humans still watching them.

"Yami... My name is Yami..."

Mana leaned forward a bit "Yaaaamiii." She said, testing the word on her tongue. "Hmmm... I like that name."
Her eyes suddenly widened and she grew excited. "Oh! What kind of mer are you? I've never seen a mer like you...!"
Yami blinked, a bit taken aback by her eagerness. "Uhm... Ebony Royal..."

"Cool! Wanna see the rest of the tank?" She yipped, nearly out right interrupting him.

"W-wha-"

"C'mon!" She suddenly barked, already beginning to swim off. Startled by the sudden change in gear, he followed. This mer was odd, even for a pet. "What about the humans watching us!?" He called ahead, still worried about them and taken aback by this maid that he had met not 30 seconds ago.

"Oh they won't bother us! The worst they can do is tap on the glass!" She continues swimming, talking all the while and growing more and more excited as she did so. "This is going to be great, there hasn't been another mer here in ages, and the last one was super old and not very exciting, but you're wild! You must have lots of cool stories to tell! You'll like it here, they serve fish every morning and evening and-..."

Yami relaxed a bit. Despite the fact that she had already begun talking his ear off, he couldn't help but feel a bit more at ease. While he still hated the situation he was in...

At least he now had company. And now he finally knew her name.

'Hmmh... Mana... What a pretty name...'


'Better then 'Darky' at least...'

So you've played Skyrim?
I've heard Fallout 4 is pretty  good, both made by Bethesda and have a lot of quality.

Yeah it is pretty crazy and epic. I am ADDICTED. Just as well I got into it as well, and jumping back into Skyrim after a long break - because Bethesda isn't going to make Elder Scrolls 6 for a long time.

Yeah. It is going to happen though, but not for a while. I wonder what province it'd take place in though...?

My cousin and I assume Blackmarsh, and that whoever or what ever the threat is will be targeting the powers of the Hist.

Yas!
Oh, he's still mad, but he doesn't feel as cornered so he may be a bit more calm.

I bet they had a big gathering on the other side of people waiting for the Ebony Royal's debut.  Mana will tire him out and he'll sleep well.

Surprisingly, not a lot.of people are allowed in the aquarium cause it's so new. Usually it's just staff and a few VIP guests.
