It was a beautiful day in Sunken City, and Perrin Avor knew one thing. He was tired. He had spent most of the day fighting with Jazen, his weapons trainer, and now he was out swimming, looking for things to use in his jewelry making. He had been awake for far too long, in his opinion, and his eyelids felt heavier by the minute. Shaking his head, he took another look around and something shiny in the distance caught his eye. Smiling, he took off in that direction, the water rushing against him cool and refreshing. Picking it up, Perrin drifted a bit farther towards a large rock and sat down to study his newfound treasure.
Holding it up to the sunlight, he looked it over with precision. It seemed to be some sort of larger glass pebble, perfect for the center piece to one of his bracelets he had been working on. A large yawn escaped him and he realized how warm and smooth the rock he was sitting on really was. He stretched his arms and let himself lay down across it. His eyes drifted shut as he told himself that if he rested for just a few moments, he could carry on with his day. That was, until the sun's rays slowly warmed him and lulled him into sleep.
There was a time in Eli's life when he wanted nothing to do with his parents. While they loved him and he was sure he loved them, there was always too much pushing. He was constantly being thrust at girls his age to 'ensure the family line would survive', persistently being reminded that he needed to practice the arts, and, consequently reminded of the fact that he was horrible at singing, dancing, and painting.
On this particularly beautiful day, Elias had left home in hopes that he could escape the pushing. He wanted to be free of the nagging, the tears, and the arguments. He just wanted to be alone. While he could have ventured inland, he decided that he'd rather spend time with the water. As it was, the element itself was flexible and accommodating. Elias had always been fascinated with it, though he scarcely had the spine to head out to sea and brave the tides to see how he could escape his reality.
Oddly enough he came upon another while he was swimming, someone who had distinctly feline characteristics. Why in the world were they basking on a rock at the bottom of the sea? Could it have actually been that warm, given the cool water that was surrounding them? Were they ill? Elias's blue face was suddenly distraught as he hovered above the blonde's body, kicking his feet to stay afloat.
Of course, the only option that felt reasonable was to wake the blonde up, seeing as this was a horrible place for an impromptu nap. Gently maneuvering through the water, the blue zora placed a hand on the sleeping man's shoulder and shook him gently. Hopefully he would stir.
Dreaming of a beautiful sunrise, Perrin hardly took notice of a slight shift in his surroundings. He did feel something brush along his upper arm, though, and that jolted him straight out of his peaceful slumber. One word popped into his mind at that moment: seaweed. A not so manly squeal left his throat and he skidded as far away from the nasty slop as he could. Which then resulted in his falling off of the rock underneath of him. Luckily, the water slowed his decent as he gently plopped down onto the sandy floor.
It took a few moments for Perrin to collect himself as he took a couple deep breaths. Casting a glare in the direction of the evil seaweed, he realized two things. The first being that was the largest piece of seaweed he had ever seen in his life and he couldn't help as a shiver ran through him. The second being that the thing that awoke him had not been seaweed at all. In fact, he wasn't quite sure what is was.. It looked... very unclear....
"DAMN IT!" The words flew out of his mouth in such a rushed anger, he slapped a hand over his mouth and started apologizing a mile a minute to... well to whatever it was that had just witnessed such a display. "Pardon me... I'm very sorry, um, thing? Ma'am? I can't quite tell what you are. B-but you see, I lost my glasses... and, well, I'm quite blind without them... Sorry. I'll just, ah..." Putting his hands out in front of him, Perrin slowly made his way forward in the sand hoping to find his glasses nearby. How embarrassing, this. He could only imagine what a sight this must be to take in.
Why the blonde was staring at him, Elias didn't know; what he could determine, however, was that the fellow hadn't appreciated his efforts. At the same time, though, Elias doubted he would regret this in the future. Had he just left the fellow there he may have been anxious about what had become of him for days, if not weeks afterward. Perhaps he was selfish for working his own consciousness into the equation, but he scarcely had time to pay that thought much mind.
What began to make Elias uncomfortable was the gaze that lingered on himself, as if he were some sort of creature of the deep. Sure, his skin was blue, but there was hardly a reason to behave so strangely! The teen crossed his arms and a worried expression came over his face, hyperaware of the blue eyes that were staring him down.
"S-Sorry!" Elias stammered hastily as the curse words were released from the blonde's mouth, hotness bubbling to his cheeks and manifesting itself in a shade of violet. Everything felt very awkward and he couldn't help but to cringe, thoroughly afraid of what was to happen next. The other's apologies hardly alleviated the stress that Elias was feeling, as they only brought with them more confusion and perhaps even a little shame. "Th-thing?" He looked horror stuck. "M-Ma'am?" Was his voice truly so feminine? Perhaps it was, though Elias didn't quite know how to feel. He mostly just wanted to swim away, but in the case that this guy was delusional he didn't want to just abandon him on the sea floor.
It wasn't until glasses were brought up that Elias's posture straightened and relaxed a bit, a vague expression of understanding appearing on his freckled face. "Oh." He muttered, watching as the blonde scrambled about for his glasses. "Oh, I, uh..." the blue zora began to scan the area, a sense of pity consuming him. He couldn't be mad at this fellow, right? After all, it seemed to be an honest mistake. It was also Eli's fault that he was awake, so he felt obligated to assist if he could. Goddess, this was stressful..
Perrin's head snapped up as he heard the other's voice and he felt heat rising in his cheeks. It was bad enough he had thought them to be seaweed, but he had assumed them to be male and was proven very, very wrong. "Erm, sorry... I didn't realize that you were a, ah, a guy. Sorry." As he continued to search, he remembered. His breath hitched as he scurried around faster, hoping he hadn't lost his precious treasure. In his rushed state, he ran into his blasted napping rock and he stood, silently cursing all the while. What had he been looking for again? Oh, yes!
"Have you seen a glass pebble?!" His voice was taking on a frantic tone. "I-It was r-right here! I know it was! And if I lose it... I don't know if I'll ever find another like it! Oh no, oh no... Oh goodness..." He continued his awkward shuffle, his eyes darting around not being of much use. He did, however, see a slight glint of something nearby and he rushed his was towards the source.
"Here! Sir! you must tell me, is this it?! I can't see very well, but it's shiny and you'd definitely know it if you saw it!" He stretched his hand towards the shiny object his hope soaring. What else could shine in such a way, if not for his beautiful pebble?
A sympathetic look glazed over Eli's face as he stared at the blonde, wondering what both of them were doing in this particular place at this particular time. There was bound to be something far more interesting going on elsewhere, something that was less awkward and more entertaining. On the bright side, the blonde had apologized. Elias supposed he could move on, though the uncertainty would linger.
"A glass pebble?" Elias inquired, confused as to what the blonde was referring to. Was that what the fellow used to see? The thought was preposterous, though the blue zora managed to keep his head about him. Of course, he hardly held in laughter out of respect; no, in all truth, Elias was just feeling particularly anxious. Perhaps he needed to move around a bit. The glass pebble would have provided ample opportunity for movement but life couldn't provide opportunity for long.
It took but a moment for the blonde to approach, Elias' face to darken, and mistakes to be made. "Th-this?" Elias questioned as he pointed to a button on his sleeve, something that hardly looked like a glass pebble. Perhaps there was a sort of sheen to it if the sun caught it just right, but, 'lo and behold, that was not what the blonde was looking for.
"That's my sh-shirt button," the zora stammered, pulling his arm away from the blonde defensively, lest he casually grab his arm. Elias, while he aspired to practice on living creatures, hardly felt comfortable being touched by strangers. "D-Do you need help finding it?" the altruistic teen inquired, though it was mostly just to get attention off of himself.
The question of what the purpose of the glass pebble was still lingered in the back of Eli's mind, though he didn't want to ask the man directly. Something about it seemed invasive, and that was the last thing Eli wanted to be.
Perrin jerked away as if he had been scalded. His cheeks darkened yet again, if they had ever lightened back to their natural state to begin with, at the thought of being so close to the other man. He stumbled backwards, putting some distance between them. "O-oh, a shirt b-button? Right... Well, that lands me back to square one, I suppose." Perrin sighed and started to pace.
This day was not going to plan whatsoever. All he wanted to do was to go home with glasses on his face and pebble in hand. It seemed such would not be the case, at least not anytime soon. Ah, to be in his cozy little workshop sipping on a cup of tea and relaxing... Was that really too much to ask for? Curses, if he had to buy another set of glasses, that would really put another hole in his wallet... His head turned at the other mans words.
"You would be willing to help me? Really?" Perrin's face broke into a grin, his disappointed mood lifting in an instant. Perhaps that would mean he could go home soon after all! He rushed back to the other man and began to shake his hand vigorously. "That would mean the world to me! Thank you so much!"
Perrin stopped for a moment and collected himself. He felt like he was being "too much" as his mother once put it, and he hoped he wouldn't scare this new person off. He scratched the back of his head and smiled shyly. "That is to say, I would really appreciate your help of you aren't too busy, and I would enjoy your company! Though, I don't even know your name... AH! I forgot to introduce myself! H=how rude of me! My name is Perrin Avor! It's a pleasure to make your acquaintance!"
The duo was little more than a couple of floundering fish under the sea, though the nervousness from the opposite party was only feeding Eli's apprehensions toward the encounter. Perhaps it was for the best that they had met, he supposed, as they seemed to be kindred spirits. Now that he wasn't being grabbed at, the blue youth assumed that it would be okay to begin the process of unwinding. He scarcely found a better way to unwind than taking his mind off of things by helping others.
Hand vigorously shaken, the zora offered up an awkward, nervous smile and began to look about for things that caught the sunlight. He figured the glasses would give off a slight sheen as well, so he figured he was focusing on the right aspect in his search. "Uh, yeah, I mean, it's kind of cruel to just leave someone who can't see, isn't it?" The response was timid, phrased poorly, and fairly insensitive toward the blonde's plight. It was mostly meant to diffuse Eli's anxieties toward the blonde man, though he immediately realized after speaking that it may only serve as a catalyst for continued discomfort.
The startling 'AH!' that left the blonde's mouth threw Eli into a temporary tizzy, his face turning a little purple from his jump scare. "O-Oh! Yeah. Propreity." The snowy-haired zora rubbed the back of his neck, wondering when the torture would end. "It's nice to meet you, Perrin. I'm Elias Verseau, though you can call me whatever you see fit." Oh, dear. Why had he said that? It sounded so foolish, so silly. He could have offered up a nickname or something instead, right? But it seemed too late for that now. Or was it? Oh, he could toss out an explanation, but would that make him seem even stranger? The boy's blue eyes began to search the sea floor once more in an effort to distance himself from his tumultuous inner being.
Perrin wasn't sure what to think of this newly-met boy. On one hand, he seemed like he had only the best of interests at heart. On the other hand, he seemed very skittish. Honestly, the poor boy didn't seem to know what to do with himself. Did Perrin really come off as frightening to him? making a mental note to himself to try to be less... of himself, Perrin tried his best to look in the mans general direction and offered him the kindest smile he could muster. He knew he could be a bit... out there sometimes.
Perrin noticed the was the other seemed to regret his choice of words, and for the sake of the conversation, chose to ignore it. No need to make it more awkward than it already was, right?"Elias, eh? That's a pretty neat name!" Perrin turned on his heal and began walking. "Well, from the feel of this current, I'd say if my glasses aren't here they've surly moved onward. So, I say we follow the clues!" The blonde giggled to himself at his own silliness and made his way. Hopefully, when he would find his glasses his stone would be there as well.
"At least," Perrin thought to himself, "the weather seemed to be fairly nice. Not that it had much effect right now... We are, in fact underwater... At the bottom, no less. Or perhaps it does matter? I'm not quite certain how the weather correlates with this sort of thing... Or if it even does at all? Huh." Perrin paused, realizing that he was talking out loud. Oh, how embarrassing... "I'm sorry! I didn't realize... Oh, bother..." Hiding his face in his hands, Perrin shook his head, his cheeks lighting up all over again.
In response to Perrin's polite smile, Elias returned one of his own, albeit a bit forced. The more the situation escalated the more comfortable it seemed he could become, so he hoped that, with some patience, all would be well that could end well. "Thanks," Eli muttered in response to the compliment, though he was still unsure about how he felt about his name himself. He almost preferred to go by Verseau, as it reminded him of his aquatic roots and rolled off the tongue a bit better. Despite this, though, everything seemed to be meant to inflate his self-confidence to a more bearable level.
The positively chipper attitude Perrin possessed was somehow comforting to the nervous Elias, though he didn't want to acknowledge such things aloud. Eli usually remained as realistic as possible, preferring to be pleasantly surprised than taken aback due to unforeseen circumstances. A negative attitude hadn't done anything for his anxiety in the past and he'd been working at maintaining a more positive aura, though it proved to be far more difficult than it had seemed. Somehow, though, the blonde's optimism was infectious... at least until Elias noticed the glasses in question resting on the back of his head.
As the blonde went on about the weather, Elias was trying to figure out how he could get the glasses off the back of Perrin's head without telling him outright. It seemed remarkably rude just to call it out for all to hear, so he wanted to maintain as much subtlety as the situation could afford. A positively pensive expression reigned over Elias's face, though he wasn't too worried about Perrin seeing it - he seemed to be quite unable to see much at all, as it were. A faint blush returned to Eli's cheeks as he recalled the button mishap moments before.
Perrin's momentary interlude gave Eli plenty of time to think, though he had to chime in on the subject lest he feel bad about it later. "The weather definitely has some effect on the water, though how much is dependent upon how large a body the water is." How did he know that? Well, Elias liked to eavesdrop. Gathering intel was one of his favorite things, as was eavesdropping.
Seizing the moment, the blue boy abruptly changed his tone. "Oh, hey," he exclaimed, if drolly, extending an arm and gesturing to the left. "Is that shiny thing over there the object that you had been searching for initially?" The youth's voice was hardly charismatic or intriguing, perhaps too obviously meant to be a distraction, but he didn't figure that Perrin would realize that. As soon as the blonde began to move away, Eli intended to follow after him and finesse the glasses off of his head. Would it be possible? He sure hoped so.
