Proving All Said was WRONG
Tonio rustled his feathers as he sat on a rock.
"How do you think Gil's doing, amigos?" he asked, eyes falling on Roderich and Raivis.
Roderich huffed replying, "If he's in trouble its his own fault for making a deal vith that Sea Vitch anyvay."
Raivis shivered in the water, his light blue eyes following Gilguppy who was at this very moment, swimming frantically around the Mereel wondering where his owner had gone.
Raivis smiled, gently petting the small yellow fish each time he passed by him.
"HEY!" came Roderich's loud yell.
Raivis jumped at the yell, looking up to see Roderich and Tonio were staring at him.
"Y-yes?" he asked, trembling.
"I asked how you even know the Sea Vitch anyway. You seem to know a lot about her." Roderich said.
"Okay, this is the truth. The two Mereel under Anya's control are my brothers...well actually my half-brothers. Our Father sold them off to Anya so that he could make my Mother fall in love with him. I'm considered an abomination because of what I am..." Ravis stared off, sadly.
"What are you, amigo?" Tonio asked, hopping to the rock beside Ravis.
Raivis sank himself into the water to calm himself before raising his mouth to say;
"I'm...the child of a Mereel and a Mermaid."
"VHAT?!" Roderich shouted, his eyes wide.
Raivis nodded, raising his fin.
"If I was a full mereel my fin would be a much duller red like that of my brothers. You have to understand, I am trying to redeem myself by saving them from Anya. But each time I try to get someone to listen, they push me off because of...what I am. You and Prince Gil the first to listen to me. Please you have to help me free them. Anya has to lose!" Ravis said, finishing by covering his face with his hands.
"We will help you amigo." Tonio answered, pecking Roderich to agree.
"Ja ve vill help you." Roderich said.
Roderich paced around before raising his glance up at the castle.
"I need to see how Prince Gil is doing. Have to make sure he isn't making a fool of himself." he said.
"Let me give you a ride up there." Tonio offered.
"I don't need a ride!" Roderich shouted.
Raivis glanced up and said, "A-a-actually Mister Roderich I think you will. I can't even see the stairs from here."
"Fine, Tonio take me up there." Roderich said, climbing onto Tonio's back.
"Si Roderich." Tonio replied, flapping his wings.
"Raivis, Tonio will be back shortly. Stay out of sight!" Roderich called as Tonio flew out of sight with the crab on his back.
Raivis sighed, gently petting Gilguppy.
Tonio landed on the balcony railing. "We're here, amigo." he said.
Roderich hopped off the seagull's back, landing on the ground.
"I'll go find that idiot Prince." Roderich said, rushing inside.
"Watch out for Chef Francis!" Tonio called after him.
Roderich continued along, giving no sign he had heard the seagull's warning.
"Aye aye...this won't end well..." Tonio said to himself.
Roderich scuttled along the stone floor in search of Gil when a human entered his path.
"Ahonhonhon~ What do we have here? Such a beau crab." came the voice.
Roderich glanced up to see a pair of blue eyes staring down at him.
Roderich backed up from the terror.
"Francis stop!" came a loud yell as a girl smacked the man, Francis in the back of the head.
"Can't you see the poor little thing is scared?!" she yelled.
The girl had long brown hair and green eyes which were glaring daggers at Francis. An orange flower was in her hair.
She turned to the terrified Roderich and gently picked him up.
"Husshh..." she said, patting the crab. "Its alright."
Roderich shivered thinking this human was going to eat him when he glanced up to see her soft green eyes.
"You are a beautiful crab." she said.
This surprised Roderich.
He had been taught for years that all Humans were evil and would kill sea creatures without a second thought and yet...this human was proving that to be wrong.
Things were changing now.
