ENCOUNTER: Patience (4) by CoffeeAddictedDragon ENCOUNTER: Patience (4) by CoffeeAddictedDragon
It had been several days since he had been captured, and still, Yami hadn't managed to find any means of escaping his chemically scented prison. Even though he hadn't made any progress is his escape plan, he hadn't been ignorant to what happened above the waterline. He learned that the humans came in the early morning and started turning on certain devices, and left late at night to where ever they went to sleep. Daily, he counted only three humans that came in everyday, a black haired female with tan skin and calm voice, a pale skinned black haired male with hazel eyes and rather sulky, serious demeanor, and him. The brown haired male... Yami assumed he was the leader, as he constantly oversaw everything and seemed to be the one the others went to for advice. He disliked that male... He always came to look in his puddle of a prison and comment on his condition. He wasn't a pet, he was an Ebony Royal Mer, and he'd remind them every chance he got. He'd shriek when they got close till his throat grew sore, he'd lash out if they got within range, and he'd glare from his pool with all the seething hatred of a leviathan. He even refused to eat the dead fish they tossed into the tank for him, he wouldn't be fed like some pet and eat whatever they gave him. However, after a few days they began to put live fish in. The instinct to hunt and the growing hunger eventually forced him to give in...

There was one thing that he hadn't figured out yet.

Yami would occasionally here what sounded like the chirping and barking of another mer. Anytime he came to the surface it would stop. Once he had though he'd seen a gold fin vanish under the water of the other, massive tank, but he could never be sure...
How many other captives did they have here?...


"Mahad, a moment please."

Mahad turned to Harry and blinked. The morning feedings were done and he had just been heading towards the stairs to let the other staff know they were ready to open. "What's up Harry?"

"Ishizu wanted to know how we're going to go about replacing darky's bandages, they're starting to get real soiled." Mahad rubbed his chin. That was a problem... He glanced behind him at the Royal Mer, who was currently glaring at him angrily. "Yeah... That IS a problem..." Treating Mana was one thing, she was simple. Since a young age she had been handled by humans and so was very comfortable with being treated. Their guest on the other hand was a wild mer, they knew nothing of his history and he had a nasty temper towards them.

"Hmm... Well, I hate to say it, but we may need to dart him with a short term sedative..."

"Doesn't sound like a method you're fond of..." Harry commented.

"I'm not a fan of it, no... But he needs his bandages changed and he won't work with us... I'll distract him and Ishizu can dart him. Agreed?"

"Yeah fine... I'll go get her..." With a glance over at the med pool, Harry turned and made his was over to the tech section.

Mahad sighed and turned to move closer to the medical tank. As he approached, the spines on the mer's back rose and rattled like a cat's back or a rattlesnake's tail. "You a little trouble maker huh?" Mahad commented softly, smiling a bit. The mer hissed, baring his teeth to the point where his gums were visible. He chuckled. "Well, it's good to see those injuries haven't rendered you without your personality..." Again, the mer hissed, louder this time, before turning and diving deep into the tank.
Mahad sighed. 'This one's going to be a challenge...' he thought. He hoped that, if it came down to it, putting him in the big tank with Mana might help his impossible temper...

I am exhausted...

I just got back from our first Kayaking lessons with my little sister and my mom.

I think I finally found and outdoor activity that I love. ^^ It was fantastic. Incase you don't know, we live at a gated lake community so we have easy access to a large enough body of water. 4 hours of Kayaking and surprisingly the only part that made me sore was dragging the boats back up, the actually paddling and stuff was hardly an effort.
I also gained a nickname thanks to one of the elder women that were there with us.

Everybody, my name is now Crash.
(not that I actually crashed, we were pretty good. XD) Everyone was wonderful, a bunch of elder women and a few men. Just fantastic.

On the the actual art, enough about my life. XD

This more or less shows some of the lay out for the working floor at the aquarium, also we get Yami's input on his current situation.

He can't let those dirty humans think he's weak. XD
He's especially mad at Mahad cause of his "cruel words of comfort."

Now, hopefully, Mana might meet him and maybe 'open his eyes'...
