    ~~Credits to the Original God of Death

    "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."

    Aura had put on her scuba gear, not even 5 minutes ago, and dipped her toe into the water. She felt as the cold sensation ran up her body and made her feel odd. It made her feel safe even though the waters itself weren't safe. She didn't understand why but there was something familiar about the area that was a bit off. In her state of that, she heard a gruff voice behind her that said, "Now isn't the time for lollygagging, now get your ass off this ship!" With a hard push, Aura went flying off the boat and straight into the water.

    As she was swimming through the ocean, she heard a comment from Theo. He was complaining, which was usual for him, from what she could tell. She muttered inside her helmet and said, "Not like I had much of a choice..." As she swam, she felt that strange sensation again. It wasn't just a sensation this time though, it was in the form of a memory. Through her head was a voice. It was beautiful and unique, but yet as familiar as ever. She was walking down a hallway that seemed sort of familiar, but yet not at the same time.

    The voice seemed to be humming a song. It was one Aura knew, but yet every time she thought she knew what it was...it would disappear in an instant. She couldn't shake the feeling of safety and love, but yet there was some loud sound that gave her fear. It wasn't inside this memory though, it was outside of it. As she shook her head, she realized she was back in the ocean where she was before.

    This time though, something was different. The shadows had seemed a bit more off, as though there was something creating more shadows than the ones that were made before. As she looked above the area that Theo and Aura were at, she saw fast, long objects swimming around. She gritted her teeth and realized what they were...BARRACUDAS! With a loud yell, Aura yelled into her intercom and said, "Theo there are barracudas above us. We have to fight them before we get ripped to shreds!" As she said the words, she was two shadows jumping towards Theo while 3 came towards her. They seemed vicious and their teeth were sharp, as though they were out for blood. They didn't seem to like the trespassers in their territory.

    As one came extremely close to her, she enlarged her book(its waterproofed don't worry) and opened it to a page with the title, "The Sirens." As she did this, she reached into her book and took out a golden key. She raised up her arm and yelled aloud, "The perfected harmony! Open gate of the paired fish, Pisces!" With the words of the opening gate, 2 large fish come out as they swim in a circle in perfect harmony. As they swim, they start to become to sirens of excellent beauty. Aura then looks at them with a nod. They seem to understand the danger she was in. With one quick note, they created clashing tones that pushed all the fish back. Two of them were knocked into each other, which led to their falling to the ground.

    There was one final barracuda, but Aura wasn't too worried about it. As the barracuda rushed towards her, Pisce and Isis then grabbed hands as they charged up what looked like a beam. As they straightened out their arms, they shot a beam towards the fish. It stopped in its tracks but kept rushing towards Aura. Aura ground her teeth with anxiousness. She knew that she wasn't going to let this fish beat her up though, so she asked the sirens to step back. As the barracuda rushed towards her, she felt fear running through her body. It wasn't scary fear though, it was more of an adrenaline rush. It made her feel alive, and since this ocean made her feel safe she went for it. She rushed towards the barracuda and enlarged her book. With one quick swing, she knocked it out as it fell to the ground along with its other friends.

    Aura felt herself gasping for air, but then controlled it since she knew she had limited oxygen. With her slow breaths, she looked over at Theo and asked, "Are you okay?" She then laid on her back and hoped that that would help calm down her need for air.

    "Hey! We might not die after all. That was sweet!" Theo cheered, all grins as he settled his eyes on Aura once some of the barracudas were cleared out. That key thingy that summoned those fish people was super cool. And super useful underwater, unlike what he had to work with. She deserved the rest she was taking, but Theo was wrong to think the threat was over. He knew darn well there were more of those barracudas coming, as well as sharks. Yet, here he was distracted by that shiny key his guild mate had. Theo wanted one, just because it looked like treasure. It was just an added bonus that it did magic.

    Meanwhile, back on the farm, the rest of the gang of barracudas charged forward, enraged by the defeat of their brethren, but also pretty darn scared of the scary girl with the summon. Go for the weaker link! Good instincts. Animals always played by the rules of the food chain, and right now Theo was on the bottom. Aura was tired, and really it wasn't her job to save him. He raised his harpoon gun made of ice, shooting a sharp spear at one of the toothy villains. While that was a good way to kill one of them, there were quite a few more that there was no way he could shoot them all in time.

    Panicking, all he could think about was the food chain analogy he'd cursed himself with. Really? Was this how it would go down? He'd die in a watery grave being shredded by a swarm of ugly eels? Their maws gaped open in preparation for a Theo dinner....so he spazzed. "FINE! If you're so hungry, eat this!" he hollered, beginning to shoot gobs of jello into their mouths to knock them back as if punched. It kept them from biting him while they ate the sugary gelatin, so maybe if he kept blocking their mouthes, they'd get tired and give up.

    That wasn't really the case, but what did happen was just as good if not better. They had began a feeding frenzy in preparation for eating the two humans, so the tunnel vision and viciousness lead to them continually eating jello until they just...popped. One by one, the barracudas filled with jello until their bodies just could handle no more. Death by overeating jello. What a way to go. Kinda messy...the little poofs of blood and scales accented by clumps of chewed and melting rainbow jello was a bit macabre, but at least he wasn't the one staining the waves red. That was the idea, anyway.

    Finding himself huffing from the repeated spell casting, he too took a break. A tired grin slid over his face has he treaded water. Jello wasn't the most useful here, but he'd accidentally found a new nefarious way to use it, and here it was the most obvious! Why didn't he think of it sooner? Glancing over at Aura, he slowly pointed to the looming sharks in the distance, drawn by the scent of blood and bent on defending their oversized mob boss waiting in the back. "What will we do about those?" he asked, offhandedly wondering how much jello it would take to explode a great white.

    Aura finally caught her breath by laying on her back. As she turned over to where Theo was, she saw a bunch of barracuda guts with...with...jello? She looked at him in question but heard him say a word she did not want to hear. Sharks! Great whites, the ones of her nightmares. And whats worse was that there were two of them. With a yelp, Aura turned right side up and said to the black haired boy next to her, "You take one of them and I take the other?"

    Fear traveled through her eyes as she looked back to the team where she was in her bedroom at the age of 5. She remembered her dad reading a story about sharks to her at night. It was like she remembered it so clearly. She remembered her dad tucking her in as he took out a book about sea creatures. The lesson that day was about the great white shark. She looked back on it now and realized that her dad was just trying to scare her, and it worked. She remembered how he talked about its sharp teeth and how they could easily devour and eat any type of meat. She remembered having nightmares about that night, but now her only nightmares were about the deaths of her family. She sighed but then looked back out into the real world, and said to herself, "Oh right, the sharks." She moved away from Theo to try and drive the attention away from one of the sharks, and it worked excellently.

    As she got out her book, she noticed her hands quivering with the fear of being eaten by the shark she was facing. She tried to stop it, but it wouldn't stop. It wasn't until she heard that song that she heard from before. She closed her eyes and saw the hallway she was in before getting closer and closer to the light she was trying to reach. It was like she could feel the warmth of the song, but it was so distant from her. She opened her eyes to see the shark inching closer and closer. As she looked down at her hand, the shaking was going. It was as though the song had cured her nerves. As she looked up towards the surface of the water, she asked the heavens, "What is happening? Why do you keep making me here this voice, and why can't I remember it." She looked up, hoping that she would receive an answer but nothing happened.

    She put her head back into the book, only to be interrupted by the 2 sirens next to her, whom she had forgotten. With a loud and surprised yelp, she said, "Oh right, I forgot you guys were there." They then rolled their eyes as they glared at her. She then turned back to her book to find a helpful summon. With a loud ahah moment, she reached into her book to pull out another key. With that, she yelled out into her helmet and raised the key up into the air. She then said, "The double-edged sword! Open gate of the thief, Goldilocks." With that, a heart flew up into the air. It was golden, due to the fact that the key was already touching the element of water. As the heart popped, golden hearts came down as Goldi appeared in her lovely form. Thanks to her being a celestial spirit, she was able to flip her hair with her hand as she got out. As the shark came closer, her 2 summons were ready to fight, but Aura, however, was slower due to having 2 summons out on the field. Goldilocks jumped towards the shark like an insane person, which she was, and lashed out her golden whip at it. The shark, flew back a bit as he was hit by the whip. Goldi then took this as the perfect opportunity to use her special ability. With a loud yell, Goldi said out loud, "With the golden waves of love, I condemn you!" With that, the shark became tied up by a rope made of golden light. It was so astonishing, it stunned him. Now that he was finally subdued, The summons of Aura continuously smashed it down until it could not move anymore. With every smack, Aura could feel the energy her summons was using to do this. It felt tiring but Aura knew that they had to continue on.

    After a minute or so, the shark was either passed out or dead. Either way, Aura finally felt safe but she did feel sorrow for the fallen shark. It looked so peaceful as it floated like that, and it made her feel guilty. She had to shake away that guilt though because now she had to worry about Theo. So, she immediately turned with as much force as she could muster to see if Theo was dead or not.

    Not that he knew what was going on in the other mage's mind, but Theo was also transported into memory land once the focus was shifted solely to the sharks. There was a time long ago that he was in a situation like this, but somehow he was even worse off. So much time had passed, something so trivial in comparison to the tragedy that befell him was foggy. But now that the memory was dug up and brought into the spotlight, he got to relive it.

    He'd been on the good ship Shippo, hired to travel across the sea and take care of a couple of...matters for his old guild. His ebony hair was tied back at the nape of his neck into a tiny pigtail, the rest of the strands left to frame his face shifted in and out of his field of vision in the salty breeze that filled the sails and sliced them through the ocean waves. He wore a navy yukata, one arm lazing in the fabric on his chest instead of in the sleeve. You know, because that was much cooler looking. Frosty hues seemed bored with the journey, only vaguely interested in the raven haired beauty that sharpened his sword to his left.

    Without warning, a large tentacle reached up from the depths, breaking the ship in half and drawing the crew and passengers to a watery grave. As Theo plunged into the water, his mind raced. How would they survive? A few had already passed away, crushed by the initial slap, but most of the others made a break for the surface. It seemed the life boats were still intact. As the crew saved themselves, Theo became aware that the baby Kraken intended to have a nice meal. Not today, baby Kraken! Getting a craving for some calamari sushi, the inky-haired boy swam down with his companion to slay the beast!

    He remembered that he drew his sword, but in the face of the toothy beak bigger than him coming in fast, what had he done? And why did the sharks remind him of the baby Kraken to begin with?




    The view from below really was exquisite. Chavez Clambourne didn't get out much, being a clam and all, but he fancied himself a connoisseur of the rarer things in life. He'd prided himself for ages over his knowledge of the dreaded mob boss Thassalus. The oversized, heavily armored fish had gripped this part of the ocean by the gonads, squeezing ever tighter the longer he was left to his own devices. To have the great whites, previously a band of queen-bee mean girls, relinquish their reign as top frightening force and become his body guards and harem was an unexpected turn of events, but more would follow. The top heavy pyramid of power easily brought all other aquatic life under the rule of the beast, doing his bidding without question.

    That was all witnessed from afar with intense admiration. To be so respected and revered. Clams hardly fell under the hierarchy. They were a species so insignificant that they could do whatever they liked. Most clams cherished this freedom and lived blissful, stress-free lives. Thassalus's rule had zip to do with them. But being the only clam for hundreds of miles that could produce a pearl gave Chavez Clambourne a thirst for a higher tier of living. He had to look smart, educated, and exciting to his peers to keep up the appearance of being above them, right?

    The stars in his eyes were too much for Chavez, and his knowledge of the life up top gave him a nasty idea. Even though clams were too insignificant to factor into the dynamic under Thassalus's rule, what if he were to become a Thassalus to his own kind, to the bottom dwellers of the sands? He was already special. He'd observed long enough to have the general idea of intimidation and manipulation. He had a small group of goons that hung on his every word, idolizing him enough to surely lend a strong shell clamp in his defense. He could devise a network, bringing those pearl spitting oysters under his rule to choke off the supply, making his own rare pearls that much more valuable and special. See, clams can make pearls, but it's pretty rare. Oysters, however, just spit 'em out like it's their job. Makes him look like a poser!

    Why stop at the oysters? His other cousins, the scallops, where a bit high on the hog, too. They somehow knew their taste was superior to the other mussels in the mouths of evil humans and took pride in their perceived grandeur of gouging the murderers so much per pound. He'd rule all the bivalves. Oh, and don't get him started on those scrubs the univalves. It'd take little effort to bring the conch and snails under his command. Next would be the decapods. The lobsters, crabs, shrimp, and krill would be his transportation crew and his heralds, what with their mobility. too bad Thassalus had already employed those brainless jellyfish. A horde would be quite the shield system...

    With all that support and power, he'd be unstoppable. Everyone would bow down and obey. He'd be the bees knees. Even his wife would have to appreciate him, that undeserving, unappreciative wench! His parents would have to stop pressuring him to work harder, as if he was a common laborer!

    Anyway, Chavez had been hatching this plan and meticulously chipping away at its goals and daydreaming of his new life when the shadow of that pesky old man's boat appeared. How dare he come back yet again and challenge Thassalus's reign! He was no common fish to be caught, sold, and eaten! A smug grin curled his dual shells. The human didn't know when to accept failure. At least it was entertaining to watch. But wait. This time was different. As the bodyguards rushed up to smack the ship and attempt to discourage the salty old fishermen, extra shadows moved about. Before long, two humans were dumped into the drink. A special performance, and Chavez had a front row seat! Time to observe what his idols would do in the face of a new threat. Maybe he should take notes for future reference...

    Even if he'd been able to take notes, there's no way he'd been able to tear his eyes away of the unexpected events. These two monsters decimated the jellyfish brigade! The second round of barracudas were dispatched. Nasty creatures, those. Eel-like fish with razor teeth. Surely it'd be over now...no! The female human summoned fish creatures to turn on their own kind, ripping them up while the man pumped them full of something jiggly until they exploded! This was unprecedented! Even in his dawning horror, he wouldn't wait to pass the gossip along. He wasn't yet Clam Thassalus, so touting his gossip of this event would have to hold him over!

    The great whites darted in. As if watching a rigged fight, he took comfort in the threat's end drawing near. Except, the girl drew out something else, some sort of deranged spirit that wrangled one of the mean girls in a golden whip, while her loyal sirens rushed in to lay the smack down. So barbaric!

    The male was somehow even worse. He called for no aid, but in his hands formed a long spear. As the other mean girl body guard swam at him, angry maw spread as wide as possible to offer him a horrific view of several rows of teeth, the human boy thrust his weapon forward and stabbed the roof of her mouth! Ouch! The shark recoiled in pain, but only enraged. Now within range, she chomped at the tasty human, looking for an arm or a nice hunk of abdomen meat, but there was something strange about this guy. His body moved in no way Chavez had ever seen another mere fisherman move. It was as if there were no bones inside, so he arched and twisted his flesh just out of the shark's grasp over and over, jabbing her in the sides, fins, and mouth whenever he could. The waters were stained red! Finally, those horrific teeth found their mark on the wiggly boy's arm in what should have sheared it right off. However, the limb seemed to go translucent. How in the world?! The buy cried out, but as the great white opened its maw in confusion over the lack of snack, the arm turned back to normal. The spear shrunk and was jammed in vertically, just long enough to trap her mouth open. She couldn't bite down! Holding it in place, the boy used his bleeding arm to pump out globs of goop like he had the barracudas.

    Oh no, he couldn't watch. Though he'd never liked the mean girls, it was hard to watch them be reduced to this level of failure and shame. One floated peacefully, fate unclear, while the other writhed and fruitlessly fought for freedom, only to be filled to bursting with whatever heinous material the boy's magic made. The rest of the great whites' loyalty was tested, but ultimately failed as they turned tail to save themselves, leaving Thassalus to fight his own battle. How quickly the tables had turned! Chavez had no way of knowing this twist in the story was around the bend. With great power comes greater threats. But! He still held out hope that his juicy gossip yarn would roll to a triumphant end, and not one that would dash his very dreams, steal his will to live, and render him just a normal clam with an overinflated pearl ego and champaign taste on a beer wallet. Thassalus would turn this around and rebuild his empire! Maybe with whales and leviathans this time! Bigger and better. He'd just have to win and show this ocean he was the idol! The undisputed boss! The big tuna!

    But what did he know? Chavez was just a lowly clam, after all.


    Theo was getting tired, too. And though his arm had taken only fifty percent of that shark bite's damage, it still hurt pretty freaking bad and the little holes from the teeth shed bloodlet tears into the water. The little ice stick he'd made in the head of the moment disappeared, allowing the dead shark to float away in the calm currents. It was so weird to have such a tense battle in a place where sound was slow and the waters offered faux comfort. Good thing he'd remembered that time on the Shippo and what his companion had done with a magic staff and some tricky magic, or else only Aura might have survived this far.

    Turning to the girl, Theo grinned, pleased they'd won their battles though a bit tense from discomfort. "Heh, I think we scared the other one's awa---" "MY HAREM!!!!" came a baleful roar, causing all the H2O molecules around them to quiver from the vibration. It came from the shadow beyond, which was now becoming larger and less shadowy by the second. "Oh...heck," Theo grimaced, seeing that the true battle would be upon them any second.

    Aura looked back towards Theo to see that his arm having blood seeping through it. It was odd because his arm wasn't bleeding as normally as you would think, something was different about. Though, Aura couldn't find anything wrong with it. She decided that it was time to just shrug it off, but all of a sudden Theo screamed. Aura wondered what was happening, but then she felt it. The rumbling of something big was coming. It felt like it was creating earthquakes from its presence alone. With a gasp, Aura pointed to the monstrous beast behind Theo as his screams were heard from the inside of her suit. She said to herself, "Uh oh..." With that, the beast came forward and yelled with a booming voice. He said to them, "How dare the both of you 'guild mages' come into my territory and destroy it. So many of my subjects are dead and it's all because of you. My army, my empire, its all gone and soon you will be too." Aura jumped back as the monster swung a huge fin at her, missing by only a few inches. She felt herself begin to hyperventilate as fear filled up inside her. She was frozen, not knowing what to do or how to move. She was there mentally, but not physically. She felt herself go out of her body as she stared at the horrific beast.

    As she looked around, she saw herself in shock from the beast as though she just couldn't bare its existence. It wasn't until she heard that humming again that she finally moved. As she listened to its beautiful melody, she felt herself going back into another vision. The light around her was brighter than before and she could actually make out the full vision. She felt herself have a tear fall down her cheek as she saw what the vision revealed to her. It was her mother, and there was baby Aura in her arms. She was humming the song Aura had been hearing since she got into the water. It was as though her mother was trying to lull Aura to sleep. Aura felt like she could tie that song to her now because as she looked back, she saw her mother humming that song all the time. It wasn't a song she had heard from beside when her mother sang it. It was odd because Aura's mom wasn't a music expert, so she couldn't have made it. She wondered why that was, but as she thought about it, she went right back into reality. Just as a large pulse of water came after her body.

    Since Aura was conscious again, she swam straight down as she used her weight to sink fast enough. She was almost positive that she saw something that could be useful to her. As she was looking towards the fish, it seemed like it always opened up its vulnerability whenever it went to attack. As she relayed that info to Theo, she said to him, "I will try to distract and do as much damage to him while you go and hit him at his weak points. Make sure that he will bury us in Davy Jone's locker." As she nodded towards Theo, she got ready to fight. She enlarged her storybook and opened it to a page named, "The Mother and Son" as well as, "The Traveller." With that, she reached into the book and took out 2 silver keys. As she raised them into the air, she said aloud, "The Gorgon and the girl for vengeance! Both of you have a taste for blood, show this fish that you will not back down until you draw some! Open gate of the Cursed, and get of the Vengeful. Little Red Riding Hood and Medusa!" With that, the keys shot out 2 golden lights above leaving behind Medusa the Gorgon and Little Red Riding Hood the girl with a scythe.

    The Gorgon said to her with a sarcastic tone in her voice, "Am I here to do something important? Am I, Am I?" Aura rolled her eyes at the gorgon but decided to not get onto her about it. For now, she decided that it was time to just explain to the both of them the plan for taking out this now she would explain to her summons the plans since Pegasus was able to get the fish stunned for a tiny bit. The Gorgan seemed mildly impressed by the idea Aura had, because she felt like it was one she would create herself. As Aura smiled at the Gorgon, she just hissed back and said to her, "Don't get used to me being proud of you." Her smile glowed as she looked at the lady. All of a sudden, the fish came up behind Aura and yelled aloud sarcastically, "Well isn't that sweet. Glad y'all can talk joyfully in the middle of our battle!" With anger, he swung his fin towards the three and was able to catch the leg of Aura. She screamed at the pain of the hit as the Gorgon looked back towards the offender and shot three arrows at him, piercing through the water with ease. Since he was too big to dodge the arrows, he got hit by them and screamed out. She knew that this was the perfect opportunity for Theo, so she said out loud, "Theo, now!" Hoping he heard her, she sent Red to get in close to the fish but make sure he wouldn't be able to catch her. She nodded with seriousness as Red dashed towards the fish. She was so fast, it was like she was teleporting to different areas. Each time she would reappear, a bleeding cut from Red's scythe would be left on the fish. As this happened, the Gorgon shot arrows at him. Everything was working so perfectly that it was too good to be true. As Aura thought that in her head, she realized that it was. It was too late though because as Aura yelled out to Red that it was a trap, the fish began spinning himself around and around creating a whirlpool like-ability that began to pull in more and more things. It even got a hold of Red. As she got sucked in, she began slamming into the fish and just like that, she was gone. She felt a tear roll down her face as she realized that this was all her fault. If she didn't send in Red like that, then she would still be here. She just let that tear go away though, and sent Theo a new plan. The plan was, that Theo was to use his jello and hopefully stop him from spinning so much. Then, Aura would go straight for the kill. She then looked right over to her partner to see if he was in aggreance.

    “Yup, yup, yup, okay,” Theo psyched himself up, running through spells in his mind looking for one that would be big enough and at least a little useful to set up a killing move from Aura. His face had paled a little in the realization that this enormous fish was actually strong enough to survive and nearly ignore summons. It was a fish. Granted, it talked, but the fact remained that it was something to be pulled from the sea by a hook. Oh, speaking of.. “Be careful how you kill it, Aura! It has to be in one piece to get weighed and photographed, or it won’t be worth any jewel! Then that salty old fisherman will have our hides!” warned the young man before getting down to business.

    Due to the size of Thally, Theo was coming to a grim conclusion. None of his spells were really big enough to have much effect on this monster fish. He’d developed nearly all of them with other humans or human-sized creatures in mind. This was definitely out of his area of comfort, since Jello was fairly useless in water let alone on something of this magnitude. That said...there was one. ONe move that might stop the spinning, and may even stun this biggy into holding still for a second. Physical attacks simply bounced off, but it seemed magical ones had more luck. This one move was their only hope, but he’d have to get close.

    Theo was no genius, but he knew what he had to do for his best chance. It seemed stupid to risk his life just so this fisherman could get a big payday, but at least it couldn’t be said that Theo didn’t give his all on the job. Swimming closer to the whirlpool, his brain was working. Molten jello. While he had a 100 meter range, being submerged in chilly water would rapidly cool his boiling fruity liquid, rendering it either dissolved or floating. On his best day, he was probably gonna burn his own arms with it. In this case, it would be far worse, just to make sure this Thassalus was hit. Looking back at Aura, he gave her a nervous smile and a shrug, then willingly tossed himself into the spinning waters. Once in, despite the dizzying motion and getting hit with various debris, Theo let loose a tsunami of molten jello. The whirlpool confined it to the area, keeping the heat close and pulling it in toward the fish, turning into a bubbly green tornado. Oddly beautiful, and probably delicious. While this also scalded the majority of Theo’s own body, the roar of pain from the fish signaled that it had done its job. The spinning stopped as the fish shuddered against the burning damage, the pain all but paralyzing him.

    Theo was likewise wracked with involuntary shuddering, his flesh turning red already. He gritted his teeth against the pain as he floated out in a random direction. He hated pain. Not feeling it was a powerful motivator. He regretting this decision so much! Why had he done something so stupid, knowing it would get him too? NO FISH WAS WORTH THIS. The fisherman was an idiot. This whole job was ridiculous. How dare this guy hire guild mages to catch a fish so he could get a payday. Where’s the sport in that?! Fishermen were supposed to take pride in catching their own dinner and payday. This guy was a fraud! Oh, just wait until he got back on that friggin’ boat. That salty seaman was getting an earful...for the entire five day trip back!!! That sonuva sea biscuit....

    Aura saw as Theo practically threw himself into the huge fish monster. In awe, she saw a flurry of jello stop the huge fish in his tracks. Aura gaped her mouth open as she Theo stopped the fish with a tremendous amount of jello. With a tone of gratitude in her voice, Aura said to Theo, "Thanks for that, I'm going to let Medusa take care of that overgrown fish while I heal you up with a little key I got from a shop a few months back." With that, she let the gorgon do her work as Aura same as quickly to the bleeding Theo as she could. As quickly as she can, she summoned the key of the turkey as it appeared in front of her. With a nod, Aura looked at the little bird and made sure that it would heal Theo up. So, it did its little thing and left behind a roasted turkey. Aura didn't know how Theo was going to eat it, but then again, it is a magical roast turkey. So, she just shrugged as she looked back towards Medusa to see that she finished the job. The fish had arrows stuck in multiple different vulnerable points, which made Aura nod towards Medusa, congratulating her on her little attack. So, Medusa decided she should leave and go back to the spirit realm. After that, Aura went back onto the boat as she got the phoenix to carry the huge fish out and onto the boat. The fisherman thanked the both of them as the three of them went off towards land.
