::The carving was actually pretty good, if not a little macabre. In other
words, it was cool and totally fit. He was a little proud of himself for
finding it. Though he wagered the game helped with that.::

Foster: Well, horses don't exactly have fingers now do they?
Blackwell: No, but they will gesture with head and hooves.
Hael: So=E2=80=A6 Hmm we jus' gotta follow it that way?

able to have some down time with friends.::

captain and first officer. Only he knew these two better and one of the was
a girl=E2=80=A6. ::
Hael: Lagoon? Hmm ::he paused.:: Wha' you think it all means?
Foster: It sound like we're going swimming.
::Rustyy brought up the rear, almost instinctive as an older brother it
seemed. Plus he didn't want Wyn to get lost=E2=80=A6 they crept up =
on a greenish,
blue=E2=80=A6 pond. Which he assumed was actually called a lagoon.::
Blackwell:: Oh isn't it lovely.
Foster: Oh yeah, no I love swimming. I love it slightly more than I love
Blackwell: Wyn, see it this way - its simply snow in another form.
Hael: There ya go! ::he laughed at the idea that never occurred to him.::
Save fer the fact he didn' grow up with so much snow=E2=80=A6 ::shr=

::Rustyy flushed a deep shade of red at the sight of Tue jumping out of her
clothes. He hadn't expected that.. he tried to look everywhere but =
He then noticed - out of the corner of his eye of course, because he
totally wasn't peaking- she was on her knees in front of the water,=
getting in yet.::
Hael: Uh=E2=80=A6 rue? ::he toned held all the question.::

Blackwell: Oh my, there we are - it's the arch. ::She looked to the=
gentleman:: Does anyone have matches?
Hael: Uuuuuuum=E2=80=A6. ::he patted himself down.:: Yes!
::He pulled them out of small side bag and handed them to her.::
Blackwell: Well, some of the clothing we wear is presumably water proof -
bit of a swim, see what is there on the arch=E2=80=A6and light the way and =

Also handing him the satchel.::
::He looked at Wyn, shrugged and jumped in. It would dry eventually after

Hael: Ain' horrible=E2=80=A6 ::he tried to smile through the weird =
Hael: Yep, I see it. Come'on breathin' translator ::he chuc=

::The water got deep enough Rustyy's short legs didn't reac=

swam a bit aways, more of an awkward doggie paddle. When they reached the
arch, with was just as gothic in design, Rustyy felt a pull on his legs.
Not like hand grabby kind of feeling - if it was that he'd have flo=
More like an undercurrent.::
Hael: Yea' I feels it too - lookin' like ya gotta get in wi=
th us Wynnie.
::once Wyn was in the water, the satchel now wet as well as everything
else, save for what was in a dry box, they gathered together at the arch
where the water pulled at them. Rustyy was elated at the thrill, Rus not
far behind. Wyn looked ready to dry heave some more.::
Hael: Righty =E2=80=98ere we go -
::he took a deep breath and fully submerged. He let the undercurrent pull
at him, using his hands as guides to just not hit anything hard.::
