    7,500 Words

    Job Location:
    Cedar

    Job Description:
    A kindly old man in Cedar has been settin' after taking down the Thassalus, a massive, vicious fish that's worth its' weight in gold if caught. The only problem is that he's a fisherman, not a battle master. He's left a notice in the guild halls and guard stations that he's lookin' for a group of fighters and don't care if they're wizards are meat heads so long as they've got balls the size of his ship.

    Starting in Cedar, you have to endure a 5 day boat ride to the Thassalus' lair. He asks you don't bring your own ship if you own one since it'll alert the beast and scare it off. As soon as you arrive, it's party time cause 'ole Thally's waiting for ya.(At the end of the mission he says he'll put a good word in with the shipmasters for you and walks off with a fat check for 5,000,000 Jewel.)

    A monster fish, charging in at 200 feet long with an armoured skull. The Thassalus is weak to magic, and strong to physical attacks. It can dive rapidly and blast itself up under the boat to throw everyone into the water, and there's no land around for miles. It takes 30 B Rank damage or the equivalent to take down. Meanwhile, the other creatures of the sea will be trying to kill you for entering their home.

    There's 15 of these in the water.

    Strong: Shark
    There's 10 of these in the water, they're great whites.

    Reward:
    11k jewels

    "Are we there yeeeeet?"

    Bored. Theo was epically bored. He was forlornly slung over the starboard railing, hanging not unlike a damp towel set out to dry by people actually having fun somewhere beach related. He was not having fun. This ship ride was entirely too long. Five days just to get to the area to do this job. THIS! This is why he should always read the job carefully, even the fine print. He should take mroe care signing up for things, especially without his friends who would have kept him from getting to the point of boredom that watching the water's waves being cut by this god-forsaken ship was less mind-numbing than rolling around on the deck or sleeping. Why had he done this?!

    To put it simply, Theo had wanted to see the fish supposedly worth so much in jewels. He'd never considered a living thing a treasure in that way (a human's worth was unquantifiable in jewels, that he knew), but in this case it wasn't much different than hunting a golden statue or treasure chest full of riches, was it? The general incongruence here was that this thing could apparently fight back and needed two mages to take it down, whereas other treasures were harmless and the threat was more environmental or human in nature. Freaking thieves and backstabbers. Never trust a treasure hunter! Unless it was him, of course. Theo was the most trustworthy shiny enthusiast currently alive. Myths should be written about him and published into legend. A cautionary and encouraging tale of a person as rare as a dodo bird...wait, that sounded stupid--

    A wave jarred the ship, tilting it starboard and disturbing his already questionable center of gravity. "UUWAAHH!!" Theo shrieked as he lurched forward off the rail, his face aimed at the choppy cresting waves hungry to suck him down in the depths to drown. Blindly reaching out, his hands coated in uberly sticky jello, hoping and praying for a grip on any part of the ship to avoid dying. If he was going to die, please let it be a much cooler way than taking a job for a fisherman to fight a fish only to die on the completely eventless ride there! He managed to touch the body of the ship, and that's all he needed. Pulling himself into the slick and slimy female curves of the old man's faithful water steed, he scrambled up and back to the railing, which he gripped and flung himself over. Sprawling onto the deck, his chest heaved from the fright and effort of nearly dooming himself...and weirdly, he was grinning. "At least it was interesting for a second!" he exclaimed windedly to himself, rolling to see if anyone saw his plight.

    Aura was reading her little book fool of Fairytales when she heard a cry from Theo. She never knew him before so she wondered if this was always how he acted. He seemed extremely bored which was reasonable, but yet the sailor who offered them the job seemed extremely annoyed. With a grunt, he said, "Can you please shut up. If I knew you were going to be this annoying before, I would've just slammed the door right in your face." As he said this he turned away and sat down as though he was just trying to cool off. Aura was mostly in her book the whole time so she couldn't really understand the amount of annoyance he had mustered up from Theo.

    As she looked back down at her book, she decided to look back at the job application from before. Looking at it out in the sun, made Aura realize how awful of an idea this was. Aura was not sure how this was all going to work out, especially with a fish as huge as it was entailed on the flyer. She bit her lips in frustration as she felt something beneath her feet tremble.

    She thought she was crazy for a few seconds since it stopped rumbling only a few seconds after it started. However, she realized that this was happening the second Theo began to fall. As he landed on the rail with his arms, the boat started to shake violently for almost no reason at all. As she saw Theo holding on to the railing, Aura started slipping under the ground as the boat tipped over more and more. With the slipping of her grip on the boat, Aura began to plummet. She started to plummet straight down into the water. Before she splashed in she tried to flip to the right page and saw it. She saw the page she desperately needed, the one titled, "The Mother, and the Son." As it opened, she reached her hand into it and took out the key of Pegasus. With a swift movement, she raised it into the air and said, "From the gate of stories, open gate of the trickster!" As she did this winds were formed in the air. They were colored like some sort of galaxy as they closed, and opened to reveal "Pegasus the Winged Horse."

    As he popped out, she yelled out to him, "Pegasus, help me I need you!" He seemed to hesitate for a few seconds and had a smile on his face. With tons of frustration, she yelled at him, "Don't you do anything you will regret later on. We have a contract so get down here right now!" With a heavy sigh, the horse flew to the bottom of the tipped ship and caught Aura on his back. As they flew into the air, she saw a few sharks trying to push the ship over. The second they caught her glance, they backed away and allowed the ship to be completely level once again.

    A few moments after Aura and Pegasus landed on the ground, she returned Pegasus back to his gate. She then went over to the captain, where he asked "What the hell was that? Was it that demon of a fish? I swear, I'm going to get him and then make a feast with all the mone- I mean food I'm going to get." As he finished up his questions, Aura looked at both Theo and the captain and told them what was happening. Aura explained a theory she learned from being homeless all her life to the both of them. She said, "I saw those sharks there and I think I know why. I don't think that fish you want wants us here. I believe he is the kingpin of this area which is why the sharks tried to tip us over. He wants us gone, so we need to fight back and fight back hard."

    Finishing up her speech, made the captain begin to think about her theory. It seemed to be very effective because after a few minutes later the captain gave Theo and Aura both some scuba gear and then threw them off the ship. Before Aura went under water, she realized how they got thrown off the ship and into treacherous territory, and said to herself, "Oops..."

    "You know...the water is exactly where I was trying not to go..." Theo mused into their comm-link inside the scuba helmet, arms crossed as he sunk into the depths. His magic wasn't super useful underwater in most cases. Even now he was mulling over any ways he could utilize it effectively. Jello tended to float in water and dissolved with prolonged exposure. Fire may be its primary weakness, but this wasn't good either. He may still be able to freeze it to give him more time... Either way, his words continued, somewhat indignantly. "And that salty old fish dude is kinda mean. It's not my fault it took five freaking days to get out to the middle of nowher--YOW!!!"

    Theo flinched away in the ocean's grasp, a stinging sensation assaulting his right calf. As he turned to observe the culprit, only for a majestic and devastating wall of jellyfish to meet his icy hues. There were....a lot. "YEEEEE!" he squealed, flailing. Panicking, he tried to lob jello at the stinging creatures while also trying to backstroke away, but his attacks either floated harmlessly up toward the surface or dissolved after only knocking a few jellyfish out out of the hundreds. He was so dumb to take this mission! His darn curiosity in that high-valued seafood!

    It felt awkward, but his only thought was to form a harpoon gun weapon out of ice. Ice floats too, but with his weight it seemed to even out. At least it didn't dissolve or melt too fast. Firing the large pointy spear, he skewered a bunch of jelly fish. They continued on out into the abyss as another ice spear appeared in his weapon. He continually skewed the zappy little blobs, sending them out and ultimately floating to the surface of the water.

    Once he'd thinned the herd and put some space between him and the jelly fish, he turned to look for Aura. Other than the bit boat belly floating above them nearby, endless blue stretched in every direction...filled with things worse than jiggly invertebrates. Baracudas! Those sharks from earlier, plus more! Looming in the distance, a mere shadowy blur lurked, obscured by the amount of molecules between them and it. That was probably the Thallasus...Thasalsa....Thassla...Thally. The big stupid fish they apparently would be risking their lives for. The request really hadn't stressed how dangerous this would be. Fishing implied being on a boat and trying to get the fish out of water. This was something else. Something that could get him killed. "Well...crap."
