"Mistress, where now?" The snivelling voice came from a man in an odd suit. It had been following her for a while now, under the guise of an underling or aspiring merman but she knew it wasn't true. He thought he had her fooled, under the impression he could breathe in the watery depths, but she knew. She could see the human device he used to be able to exist down here. Yet, she allowed his existence. For now. For a purpose.
"Oh, no-where too special." Her voice was melodious, soft and alluring like the deep ocean where her and her peers lived. She swam with her tail constantly undulating in a hypnotic rhythm, deeper and deeper.
"Not.. the special place?" He asked, getting more nervous with every meter of depth they gained.
The merwoman narrowed her eyes, smirking. Was he here to study them? His eyes had been so curious. Flitting around and about, invasive in their stare. Asking far too many questions...
"No, somewhere else. Did you hear about the Deep God?" She taunted, knowing he'd heard snatched about the dark God of the black ocean.
"Oh, yes." He stopped, and she in turn also stopped and turned to look at him. "I don't want to go so deep."
"What a shame..." She pouted, watching him coyly. "I was hoping to show you Sanctuary whilst there."
"Sanctuary?" His eyes lightened. "Oh mistress you honour me, such a special place!"
"So.. you'll come?"
"Yes, yes!" He was already diving past her, onwards and downwards. He was so ignorant and clueless to know that place was far, far away.
"I'm so pleased." She purred, pulling the blade from where it was tucked in her flowing tresses, pressing it against her snarling smile before tucking it where she could access it quickly, when that important moment came.
