Oh how he missed the seas.
For so long had the Swampert traveled the land--he had almost forgotten the feeling of the tide against him, arms thrusting back to propel himself forwards. It had been a while since his last meal, the nagging hunger tugging at his stomach. Opening his mouth, he tasted the ocean, flexing his arms in anticipation. He looked upwards to where the water was lighter from the rays of sunlight cascading down. Widening his eyes, he could catch the sight of a few, small figures under the Mirage Island. Drowned's lips suddenly contort upwards in a sick grin, a deep, low chuckle emitted from his throat."DRRRRRRRRRRRRRROWWNING LeSsOnS..."
he giggled with mad delight, crawling across the murky floors, smile only growing wider as he felt their happiness radiating through the waves. They must be family, the sight of the Lanturn nuzzling the Sharpedo only providing more evidence to his theory. A little Chinchou was with them too... their child? The Swampert no longer remembered his own family, barely able to make out the face of his gorgeous sister in his mind. Shaking such thoughts away, he drew closer to the couple.
Burying himself in the filthy sands in the bottom of the sea, only his glowing red eyes stood out as he watched them, patient as he waited for the perfect time to strike. Drowned was silent, motionless. Only a few minutes passed before he burst into motion, erupting out from the Earth as he propelled upwards, catching the Lanturn within his jaws in one, swift movement. He cackled with an unnerving insanity, landing out of the water and on the shores of the cave. "PrEtTy LiGhTtTtT~"
he purrs, before crushing the fish's lamp with his bare hands.
He turned towards the Lanturn's mate, a Sharpedo, giggling in mad fits as he held he still-alive fish from her tail, the female screeching in a mixture of fear and pain. "SaY bYe ByE!"
he smiles sweetly, slowly slurping in the body of Hannah like spaghetti, a disgusting crunch resonating through the cave as he crushed each bone with his maw. As he reached the head, he clamped down sharply, the female's eyes suddenly gouged out from the pressure and hanging from her sockets. "TaStY!"
Swallowing the rest of the Lanturn down, he gave one last innocent glance at the Sharpedo, before chuckling darkly, his face transformed into one of malice and hatred. "PiTiFuL, pItIfUl ThInGs..."
he sneered, before leaping back into the murky waters, slamming his body onto the sandy ground. Suddenly, the island itself began to shake, a massive Earthquake trembling the Earth, the Swampert using this to his advantage, swimming out of the cave and around the island.
[OOC: Hannah has been killed. I will be floating here for one or two more turns.]
