It's all in the Eyes {Evi | Aphrodi}

Post by Evi Elwood on Wed Dec 06, 2017 2:25 am

A man walked alone through the marshy terrain that he called home. From the horsetails that grew up from the water to the frogs hoping around it was business as usual. Mangrove trees sprawled through the brown muddy water that was covered in green algae in many places. Other trees also towered where the land was higher than normal and it looked like they were growing from deep underwater, though the land underneath was just higher in these parts.
 
The murky depths held many predators. Alligators were the most common but also the least dangerous. Their superiors, the Afancs, were much more ferocious. Afancs were weird alligator-beaver hybrid creatures that roamed the marsh and were literally invisible in these waters. Truly the Gods were bored one day when they made such a creature. Avoiding them was the best course of action but that wasn’t always possible. Oh well, Evi would deal with it when he got to it.
 
Evi remained on the edge of the marsh, avoiding the deeper portions of muddy water so as not to fight the gators and afancs on their own terms. Evi wouldn’t mind running into a gator though, at least the gator would provide food and weren’t too difficult to kill. Evi didn’t really want frog legs again though and fish didn’t exactly live in swamp lands. He had a Crayfish trap nearby, maybe he’d fry some of those up.
 
Evi continued walking alone along the edge of the Marsh. Eventually he’d need to get the guilds boats fixed up but at the moment he didn’t know any actual wood working so that wasn’t possible. Suddenly there was a loud splash and it happened in an instant. An Alligator was dead. It tried to sneak up on Evi, and had succeeded quite honestly, but Evi’s instinct allowed him to kill it. A tendril of flesh and bark stretched out from his back, ending in a sharp woody point that had impaled the Alligator and kill it. Thus was Evi’s power. The tendril swung around and flung the alligator off to the side where there wouldn’t be others of its kind. This would do well for food, Evi though as the tendril started to sink back into his body.
 

Evi bent over and inspected the dead reptile as he heard the rustling of leaves, Evi looked up instinctively to see a rather lovely Elven girl standing a few feet away from him. Evi stared blankly at the girl, a little curious. What was she doing all the way out here in a filthy swamp like this? Evi thought.

Lihua had a habit of day-dreaming. She would just go for walks, and when she finally snapped out of it, she was usually on bad whereabouts. This was no different, as the elven girl was now amidst a swamp with dangerous beasts all around. Dammit, she thought. But, now that she was here, and didn't quite know the way back, she might as well explore it. Future knowledge is not always necessary, but always appreciated. Lihua started to sing chants and arcane words, before a small blue layer covered her body for a second, and then disappeared. What was that? One may ask. Well, it was just a simple protection spell. It wouldn't protect her against anything that isn't a mosquito, but then again, mosquitos are the devil.

She then started to venture into the marshy lands. The mosquitoes, which would be the bane of her existence at this point, thankfully were not being a problem due to the barrier. Although, she still had to travel carefully, since the swamp waters were filled to the brim with predators who certainly would like a piece of elven meat for lunch. Avoiding the water as much as she could, she ventured through the swamp, hoping to find a way out of it.

Soon enough, she did not find a way out, but she found something just as helpful. Something that didn't want to kill her... Or at least that's what she thought. As soon as he noticed her, she shyly waved towards him, her peculiar eyes shining through the usually dark swamp.

Evi lifted the gator he had just slain and threw it over his shoulder. If he left it alone something might come along and try and steal it and Evi would have to find something else for dinner, he could always gut it and skin it when he got home to the guild.
 

Once, Evi had secured the large reptile in a comfortable position on his shoulder Evi walked over to the girl and stood before her. She was Elven, cute to, but something was off. Evi’s eyes wandered around trying to figure it out, having no regard for privacy or personal space as he leaned in and stared the girl straight in the eyes with his blank, normal expression, as if he wasn’t doing anything out of the ordinary. “What’s with your eyes?” Evi asked bluntly with no regard for tact, not giving his name nor asking for hers. Her eyes were what was off. They weren’t normal. The color was initially fine but her pupils were all out of whack. They were cross shaped, and there was nothing in the dead center of the cross so it looked like she had two horizontal pupils and two vertical pupils all converging on one spot but never meeting. They were strange and had Evi’s attention and curiosity now, which could make this already strange encounter much more strange and much more long term than the girl may like. She didn’t really have a choice though considering Evi’s lack of self control.
