Mary looked at him and looked at his tail for a moment and smiled, it best suited him. “I’ve been pictured in the wrong light. All I ask you is to let go of those prerequisites that you have of me.”

"Did they say what kind of artifact they wanted?" Sunny asked Cato, but they were being escorted from the room.

"And what do you think those are?" Alec asked her.

Mary laughed as she looked above the light streaming down and shook her head. “Which adjectives to choose from? Deceitful, betrayer, unworthy, self righteous, pretentious, need I go on?” Her voice seemed strained, in the back of her throat she felt pain as is she was going to cry.

"No, I figured you can help me find something," Cato shrugged as they swam out from the council.

“O...kay.” Sunny nodded slowly as they exited the building. “So, uh, what now?”

“I don’t think that about you,” Alec lied smoothly. His face gave no betrayal of how he really felt. “I don’t understand it, but that’s not my business. Again, I’m not here for you.”

"We go back up," Cato looked at her as if that was obvious.

"Wait, can't we like, look around?" Ferris asked and Cato eyed him.
"No, I don't know if I can trust you," he said matter-of-fact and continued swimming back to where they'd come.

Mary narrowed her eyes and turned away from him. He still wasn’t opening up to her, she placed her hands up once again. She took a deep breath and concentrated, she felt a faint buzz on her fingertips and motioned in that direction. “So matter of factly, ever thought of letting go a bit?” She muttered.

“You put us in the same room as the council and we didn’t do squat,” Sunny muttered under her breath.

Alec chuckled and shook his head. “No, not even a little.”

Cato just shot her a glare over his shoulder and made a face.

Ferris sighed but nudged Sunny's arm. "Come on then, we'd better follow."

(Idk how exactly to express Ferris's power cuz it's not like. An  obvious thing to show lol)

Mary chuckled as she sped along in the water, creating a whirlpool. "Maybe you should. You're missing out." She called out.

(Maybe he can figure out how to manipulate it later on? Idk. We’ll think of something.)

Sunny nodded and followed the boys up to the surface. She wondered if Chris had stuck around the beach, or if he’d gone back to do homework or something. It wasn’t a big deal if he hadn’t. He needed to do his homework, she told herself.

“I think I’m fine, thanks,” Alec called back to her. He looked around the ocean again, searching for...he didn’t know what. Just then, a glint of metal caught his eye, partially buried in the sand. He bent down to pick it up, and realized it was Luis’ knife. His initials were carved into the sea wood handle.

Mary stopped a distance and quickly went to his side. She frowned as she took it in her hands. “Your accomplice?” She asked feeling the engravement.

(Eeee okie)

Cato popped up out of the water and frowned when he saw Chris waiting on the beach.

Sunny surfaced next to Cato, and grinned when she saw Chris was there. She held her hand up as high as she could get it and waved frantically, hoping he’d see her. He’d waited. He’d actually waited for her.

Alec snatched the blade from her hands, swallowing against the lump in his throat. “You’re not trained to handle that,” he said. Salerian soldiers never went anywhere without their dagger. It was the first weapon given to them in training, and it was useful for survival and identification.

“Geez.” Mary backed away and sighed. They were far enough that humans couldn’t out, but not close to home at all. “Then must’ve been abducted.” She threw her arms to her side with a huff.
