Your name is Eisire Aquina. You are a hyper-intelligent seadweller who creates fearsome creatures for a living. But, right now, you are unable to breathe under water. About a week ago, your past caught up with you and you were attacked by pirates, the only reason you are still alive is because of your friend, Theiyw, who you most definitely have a huge pale-crush on. Your rib gills are injured, leaving you land-locked until they can heal. You haven't slept in your coon since the accident, too nervous about getting sopor in your injuries. The cut on your forehead still hasn't closed, and you're beginning to wonder if you'll need to stitch it shut. But the idea of sewing your own skin makes you shudder. Until your gills become functional again, you cannot access your labs, which are all completely underwater, so you are unable to start any new projects. You spend an hour each day using your husktop to program commands into the small bots that keep your lab running smoothly.

You have alerted all of your clients to your absence, although only one kicked up a fuss. It was a bizarre form of concern, because if you die her armies would be severely weakened. With your lusus hibernating and you unable to stand for more than an hour without your gills feeling like they are on fire, you are unable to protect yourself. Three hours after contacting her, she sends the first guard. He was easy to scare away, you just had to shout and growl at him. The next day, you scared off the new guard by summoning your eldest dragon. The following evening, you frightened off the third guard by firing bolts at his feet. You were not a wriggler that needed to be protected. Your injuries made you grumpy and frustrated, you just wanted to stay on the couch and sleep straight through the next two weeks.

Your name is Aarush Dasura and you really need to keep better track of your mobile device. It had been buzzing like crazy for the past thirty minuets. You hive was a mess again, both from searching and from your restlessness from not hearing from your flush for a while. When you tend to get stressed, you tend to drink. There were bottles all over your hive again. Your morail has been helping you with your problem, along with your flush, but not hearing from one of them for a week has caused your relapse.

You finally find your mobile device and as predicted it was filled with imperial orders. Wait... this wasn't your thing. Protection orders? Yeah, you suppose laughsasins could be used as bodyguards. As usual there was a deadline for you to get there, instead of when to turn in a head, and the location and blood caste. Protect a pinky... right. Well this was going to be fun. You put on your armor, you had to get a new set after all. Going up the mountain and putting up with the others of your cult... yeah that only compounded the reasons why the moment you got back to your hive you opened up a bottle.

You leave your mask off to the side of your head as you walk over to your bike. You had packed a couple of bottles in a bag, along with some clothes and a collapsible coon. You had no clue how long this gig was for, it could be days it could be sweeps. You call up Ducita to tell her of the situation as you tie your bag onto your bike. You didn't need to worry her, you just asked her to check up on your hive every now and then, and that she was welcome to it as usual when you were away. You adjust your armor before sitting on the bike. You had gotten a bit of a upgrade, there were black metal peaces attached to the leather that was light and flexible and could become camouflage as needed. You also got a larger and more ornate shoulder peace and a less ornate one for your other shoulder, they said it was for coming into your own, because of you finally inheriting your Ancestor's Cursed Eye. Right. Your devotions to the Wicked Ones hasn't changed, but your trust of that Carnival was not quite there.

You don't hurry too much. You had a bit of time, as you passed over a seaside town you decided to pick up a little gift for your sick/injured master to be. A pair of fin peirceings usually worked for all genders. You get a nice set in the shape of the Imperial trident, they were gold with accents of red along the center. It was a nice, yet not too personal gift. You may have lingered in the city a tad too long for the rest of the journey was a bit of a rush. It wasn't untill you arrive at the island do you realize who's hive it was.

Eisire!!!

Okay now you were panicking. Did she get hurt? Did some other troll cull her and take over her hive? Did pirates capture her? Your mind was racing and the spirits of the drowned were coming to your panicked calls, they settled over your shoulders like a shadowy cape as you run up the docks to her door, a hand griped along the hilt of your short, curved blade.

You had managed to fall asleep on your sofa, only to be awoken by someone running along the docks. Each breath you took moved your gills, which was painful to say the least. Sleeping through the pain had proved troublesome, so you had been taking cat naps whenever the pain dulled for awhile. You hissed, sitting slowly, carefully, your hand pressed to your gills. Your hair was tightly braided back and you had grabbed whatever was clean in your room to wear, so a pair of neon pink pajama pants and a black sports-bra with an old white shirt thrown over top. After coughing a few times, you managed to stand, picking up your crossbow. The Empress must have sent another guard, despite that you sent the last three packing.  You touch the bandage around your head, thinking it didn't need changing and then feeling crusted blood in your eyebrow and hairline. You must have not tied it tight enough. Using the furniture to steady yourself, you stand in front of the door, completely unaware that it was your flush coming to guard you. A territorial growl rumbles in the back of your throat as you wait for the knocking to come.

You try the door. It was locked as you expected. You pause a moment trying to organize your thoughts slightly. You stopped when you heard movement in her hive. Slow shuffling steps, it could be her... It could be another person. Your worry was mounting, with a growl you went on the side of the offensive and slammed your foot into the door to nock it off it's hinges. You had a throwing knife in your hand, but you were quick to realize who was it at the entrance and quickly take off your mask.

Eisire!

The relief in your voice was painfully obvious. You walk over to her quickly.

I'll fix your door later, are you alright? What happened? Pirates? Fuck your head is bleeding.

Who ever did this was going to die quite painfully and horribly at your hands. You gently touch her head trying to see the wound, but not trying to disturb the bandages too much. Your hands were shaking, you were shaking. Your cursed eye shone in response to your heightened emotions. You needed to calm down before it started to drain you.

You are alive...

Your crossbow went back into your syladex immediately, the snarl on your face turning into confusion. "Aarush? What are you doing here?" Your head spun, and you grabbed his arm to steady yourself. Your confusion mounted at his questions, all you could manage to say was "my door...?" Oh, your door was off of its hinges. You felt horribly guilty, you should have messaged him, but you were too frustrated with your inability to leave the couch for more than fifteen minutes at a time that you'd hissed at your palmhusk whenever it buzzed. You were dizzy as hell, pale and slightly fevered from the pain in your gills. You grit your teeth when you inhale a little too deeply, the hand not on Aarush's arm going to your side.

Who... did this?

You were trying to conceal your rage now, you even closed your left eye but the dull glow could be seen behind your eye lid. You carefully pick her up. You noticed where she had grabbed her side, she was warm too. There must be a reason she was not in a coon. You set her gently on the couch.

Hold on... Let me... get some more bandages... You might... need a few.... stitches... on your head.

You speak slowly. Control, everything was about control right now. You had to keep yourself in control. She was hurt, you had to help her. You get up and go to your bike, and take your bag off the back. You had packed the first aid kit that you kept in your hive as well. You take out the bandages and the things you needed to clean and stitch up her gash.

You hiss when he picks you up, the movement making your gills hurt. You cough a few times, covering your mouth with your hand. Each cough felt like fire licking your gills. You could taste blood again, the injured gills did connect directly to your lungs. "He's dead," you reply quickly. You didn't want to rehash all the details right now. You relax into the couch, too tired to be nervous about getting your head stitched up. Closing your eyes, you laid back down on the sofa, curling around one of the pillows. Aarush was gone now, perhaps you had hallucinated the entire thing? It was possible to hallucinate out of sheer tiredness. You mull this over as you drift in and out of consciousness, your breath on the ragged side.

You fill a bowl up with water and pour some of your all purpose ointment into the water and soak a length of bandage in it. You also place the needle you were going to use to stitch up her gash in there. The needle was clean but some more more antiseptic would not hurt. You take the bowl and the bandages and set them on the coffee table next to the couch.

Don't worry Princess... I'm not going to leave you alone...

You slowly remove the bandages around her head. You take the length of bandage that you had soaked to clean the wound of any dried blood so that you could see how bad it was.

You are gonna need a couple of stitches... I'll be quick.

You take the needle from the bowl and quickly fit a thread threw it. You did move quickly, sewing her up neatly and carefully. You tie off the last stitch and clean the wound again before wrapping it.

I'm gonna get you some medicine and then you sleep okay?

You force a smile onto your face. Your stomach was in knots. Why Eisire? Why not you?

You blinked a few times, a sleepy smile settling across your face when he came into view. Everything was a blurry mess, your over-tired brain was barely understanding anything. You hiss when the bandage gets pulled away, and your nails dig into the sofa when you feel the needle weave in and out of your skin, but you are too tired and confused to move. You cough into the pillow, your body rattling with the movement. You were overly tired, getting an hour of light sleep every so often had left you weak and confused. You're barely registering what he's saying, but you return his smile. "Aarush, when did you get here?"

Don't worry about that... here I have something that will help you sleep and keep the pain away.

You would give her glass filled with a another type of drug mixed with water. It was a sopor biased recipe one of the things taught in certain Carnivals, not widely known.

It tastes awful... but drink it all okay?

You unbuckle your shoulder peaces letting them fall to the ground with a clamor. If they couldn't handle the abuse you put them threw there was no way they could be useful in a fight. You hold the glass for her even when it was in her hands. You didn't want her to spill it on her self. You fight to keep your hands steady. Fuck... You needed a drink yourself.

You sit up, hissing at the movement and coughing twice before drinking the contents of the glass. You wrinkle your nose at the taste, but you drink all of it. You hiccup and rub your eyes, all logical thinking out the window. That background stream of DNA sequencing was jumbled, random patterns jumping to the front of your thoughts. You put your hands over his shaking ones, feeling worried. "Are you cold? You're shaking." Currently nothing made sense, and sleep was quickly dragging you under. You laid back down (more so 'flopped'), mumbling nonsense and curling around your pillow before entering a deep sleep.

I'm fine Princess... You just sleep...

You kiss her gently in between her horns. You had work to do. You took the glass from her hands when she had fallen asleep and put away the bandages. You took the bowl and the glass to the kitchen and cleaned them and set them on a clean towel to dry just like you do at your hive. You then take your bag into one of the smaller back rooms you remember were  on the floor here, probably storage rooms. You rearrange things as needed and set your travel coon to fill and grow to size. After you had changed out of your armor into a light weight t-shirt and comfortable pants. You took a bottle out from the bottom of the bag and popped it open taking a long drink before going to look at the door you had knocked off the hinges. Okay, she would need it fixed. You set up a makeshift work area outside on the dock and after a search for tools you start fixing the door that you had broken down.

You just kept moving. Keeping your hands and mind busy. You paused occasionally to take a drink from the bottle of soporific. You kept a ear out for her as you painted the door to match her hive, and the area. You end up taking it a bit farther then you had meant to and painting a mural of the island and the ocean on the door.

You woke about five hours later, the ache in your gills demanding to be felt. You had sighed in your sleep, the full inflation of your lungs pushing at the frail tissue of your gills. You woke coughing, propping yourself up on one arm as your lungs tried to remember how to be lungs. Your head was clearer now, the memories of what occurred before you slept hazy. But you had managed to sleep for more than an hour, and you felt slightly better. You touch your forehead to find fresh bandages there, and you remembered that Aarush was here. Moving slowly, you walked to where your door used to be, leaning against the doorframe as you watched Aarush paint your door.

You were less painting now as more drinking and looking out at the waves as you wait for the door to dry a bit before adding on the varnish needed to keep it weather proof. There were a couple of empty bottles by your feet. You didn't notice her as you looked out across the waves. Ever since you started to get some control of that damned eye you've been seeing just what you could do. Right now you were some ways under the water looking threw the eyes of a spirit of a drowned troll. His ship had been caught up in a hurricane, he had no chance. He had been a slave and chained to the ores. Now he was just haunting the bottom of the trench. There were so many treasures down there. You blink severing the connection long enough to get another drink and then go back to exploring the bottom of the trench with this ghost.

You walked quietly down the dock, wanting to see the door. Your eyes widened, it was absolutely beautiful... You admired it for several minutes before turning to Aarush. Holding your side, you sat beside him. He didn't seem to be quite 'here', so you just watched the waves with him. You unbraid your hair, combing it with your fingers, then braided it again, aching to go swimming. But your gills were nowhere near repaired enough, too sensitive to even be in the water, much less participate in the respiration process. For now, you could just watch the waves. You drew your knees to your chest, settling your chin on one of your knee caps.

You pull away from ghost as you feel your eye starting to hurt. You bring your fingers up to it and felt the blood tears at the corners of that green and black orb. You blink a few times completely severing the connection, so you hoped. Sometimes you would get feedback anyways, flashes of memories from the spirit or spirits. You bend over to open a new bottle and blink when you see Eisire there. A smile crossed your face.

Good morning Princess...

Fuck you feel a bit stiff from sitting for so long. You stand and crack your neck and shoulders.

Ya could-a poked me... What do you think of your door? I got a little carried away with it, just waiting for it to dry up so I can place a protective coat on it.

You speak a little slower then usual thanks to the bottles of soporific you had been drinking almost mindlessly as you traveled with the ghost.

You plant a kiss on his cheek. "Good morning, Aarush." You push the bottle he was about to open out of his reach. The empty bottles were enough of an indicator that he had been drinking, the slowness in his voice confirming your suspicions.

"You looked so relaxed, I didn't want to disturb you. I've put you through enough stress tonight, I wanted you to have some peace." You lace your fingers with his, looking back to the door. "I love my door! Its absolutely beautiful. Where did you learn to paint like that?" You coughed a few times into your hand, wiping it on your pants the instant you noticed a few drops of blood. Your gills were 'leaking' into your lungs, almost. But your coughs got rid of it before it could create too large of a pool.

Your smile turns into a grimace when she pushes the bottle away but you relax quickly, gently pulling her onto your lap, careful to not bump into her sides.

You can disturb me any time... Nah... don't worry about me... I'll be fine.

Your hand tightens around her's when she places it threw your fingers.

I don't know really. Sweeps ago I just started makeing pictures with left over paint and things. Helped me to get the ghost's memories out of my head and remember things that were actually me... Can't say it works that well any more but, it still is calming. Better then flying off into a rage and doing something I'll regret later.

You laugh, but it doesn't sound as carefree as it usually is. A frown crosses your face as you notice the blood, you touch the faint stains on her pants before taking a large breath and exhaling it.

Who did this to you Princess?

Your voice is soft still slow, but with a menace to it similar to how he had sounded when they had first met. Just a hint of that frightening tone. You open and close your hand slowly into a fist. You needed that bottle damn it. You reach for it.

You chirp when he moves you, relaxing into his arms. You rest your head against his shoulder, smiling peacefully. "I am always going to worry about you." You close your eyes, resting as you listen to him. "I'd love to see more of your artwork, if that's okay." You just want to stay this way, happy and in his arms. But your smile fades when he notices the blood. You chew on the inside of your cheek, thinking of how to answer. In the corner of your eye you see him reach for the bottle, and you quietly take his other hand in yours, pulling it back towards you.

"Just... Just some pirates..." You mutter, glancing away. You knew that eventually, you'd need to tell Aarush just how violent and bloodthirsty Erisie, your other half, is. But... you didn't want to scare him away. You had killed your ex-matesprit two years ago, and his moirail had come for revenge. Both were now dead, Theiyw had taken care of the later with his hammer. The night after he had left, you had burned the dead pirates and let the ocean breeze take care of the ashes.

I have a few more pictures at my hive... I sold a few of them over the sweeps, but I should have a few nicer ones still that are good to look at.

You smile slightly gently hugging her. You were starting to calm down some as she talked. Being next to her was better then drinking a bottle of soporific any day... You should have came sooner but no You had drown yourself in.... You let out a huffing growl resting your head agenst get shoulder.

I should have come sooner... And not becouse of a damned order.

You keep her in that hug. You hated yourself and those pirates. Just Becouse they were dead, it did not save them from you. Anger burned in you but you kept a mask over your face. You would make the afterlife a hell for those pirates.

You close your eyes again, melting into his arms, feeling more relaxed and safer than you had in the last week. You had been jumpy since the attack, each unidentified noise making you snap to attention. You always kept your crossbow in your strife deck, even as you slept. You were constantly on edge; typically you would drown yourself in work until the stress was smothered. But you couldn't reach your labs, which only made you more stressed out. You were a workaholic, but you never did anything about it because you loved what you did.

"Aarush, there was no way you could have known what happened." You squeezed his hands, trying to reassure him. "I'm happy you're here."

I could-a figured that something went wrong when...

You sigh and hug her a bit tighter. She was right, as she usually was. You got too wound up about something that you had no control over. Still... Seeing her hurt like that made your stomach tie in knots. You manage another smile as she says how happy she was that you were there. Of course you were here, where else would you have been?

I am too.

You look out to the sea, listening to the waves for a moment before letting out a long sigh. You nuzzle the back of her neck, fucking pirates.

How bad did they hurt you? Is there anything you need?

You look at her again.

I saw you holding your sides... Did they hurt your ribs? Your gills? ...Maybe we should go to one of the Hospitals, your tyrian caste... they would have to help you.

You sit with him peacefully, syncing your inhales and exhales to his. You chirp and giggle when he nuzzles the back of your neck, then chew on your lip when he starts asking questions again. You just wanted to shut yourself in your lab and forget the incident ever happened, but you couldn't. You quieted before speaking, watching the moonlight shimmer off of the waves.

You considered your injuries; the black eye and dark bruise on your jaw was pretty much gone, along with the other bruises. Now that the cut on your head was stitched up it should heal faster, the only issue was your gills. You only really looked at them when changing the bandages, and the skin surrounding them were black with bruises. You wondered if you had a fractured rib or two. "The pirate captain hit me pretty hard in the side with his mace. I don't really know how bad it is, but my gills are damaged enough to the point where I can't use them." You look down at your small hands woven about his, uncomfortable with the idea of going to a hospital and having strangers poking at your gills. "I-I don't think its bad enough for a hospital..."

You try to keep the worry out of your voice but it was almost impossible.

Aren't damaged gills almost as bad as a pierced lung?

Of course you knew that the gills were the weakest point on a seadwellers body. How many times had you exploited that weakness yourself? A knife in the gills to kill slowly and painfully, piercing in between the ribs to nick the lung so that blood would slowly fill the cavity. Or a knife into the neck gills to sever nerves and heads. Your hands clench as you grip them tightly together.

You should get checked out at least by the docterors... I mean, if you are bleeding into your lungs...

You trail off. What if you were endangering her life more by waiting so long already. Maybe you should just take her but, the only vehicle you had was your jet bike. The forces against the body at speeds were not safe for transporting someone as injured as she was now. Your knee starts to bounce as you try to think of some way to get her to the hospital safely.

You were definitely nervous now, nervous about if your injury was worse than you thought and nervous about going to the hospital. You remember trying to see how bad the damage was, your gills were partially unsheathed instead of being tucked under your skin when they weren't in use, the slits that held them leaking blood. As if on cue you start coughing, sticking your mouth and nose into the crook of your arm as your lungs tried to get the liquid out. When the fit ends, you're quiet, knowing that you are going to need to go to the hospital, trying to think of some way to convince Aarush that you don't need to go. "I haven't taken a good look at my gills... I dunno maybe its gotten better..."
