[RP with CaliforniaCombatCony] Kairi Tahelm Often goes by Kai Pelagic Thresher 23 It was finally summer, meaning vacation, which for Kai meant finally arriving at the island in her dreams, quite literally, as well as the island that was almost identically described in one of her fathers old notebooks. Cheesy as it may sound, she couldn't help but take that as some sort of sign, telling her to go to this island and visit it. It was probably all nonsense, her overthinking, or over-analyzing things and that it was all coincidence the island in her fathers notebook sounded exactly like the one she often dreamed about. She'd always loved water and the sea, though perhaps that's because she grew up on the shore, and perhaps it was just her hopeful and over-imaginative mind wanting the island in her deceased father's notebook to be identical to the one she dreamed about. She had no particular rhyme or reason for it, while she was curious about her father this wasn't some far-fetched search to try and be closer to the man she never knew. This was genuinely and solely her own curiosity, and perhaps her own desire, maybe even need to investigate the island, regardless of her fathers connection to it, something about it just seemed...right. Thus, in short here she now was on vacation with some friends at the island. It turned out to be a pretty popular tourist destination, actually, which for some reason surprised her, and maybe even disappointed her a bit, contrary to what her friends thought. Since they'd arrived, they had been out exploring the tourist locations, picking up local dates that were clad in dark tans and ripped muscles. She however was more curious in the island itself rather than the people. She did hang out with her friends occasionally to not seem as though she was entirely uninterested in them, but it was later in the evening she was able to get away from them more easily as they would be distracted partying, some even disappearing themselves with some locals. She walked down the shoreline for quite a ways, finding herself relaxing a bit more the further she got from the noise of any parties and groups. She walked for a while, not worried about how far she went since she figured it would be easy enough to find her way back, she'd only have to follow the shoreline back around the way she came. As her bare footprints trailed along behind her in the damp sand, she came to a stop when she noticed someone standing out on a rock in the crashing waves against the shore. She was a bit surprised seeing anyone this far away from the town, though figured it was likely a local. Though local or not, she couldn't help but think it was dangerous to stand that far out on a rock in the water. She hesitated a moment, about to call out to the shadowed figured when all of a sudden he dove into the violent waves, causing her eyes to widen a bit and she quickly took a few steps forward, as though that would help her see better as her eyes scanned the surface of the water for him to resurface. When that didn't happen, she started to panic a bit more, quickly throwing her sandals she'd been carrying in her hand along her walk to the sand as she crossed the cluttered rocks, walking atop them to the point she'd last seen the figure, hoping that maybe she just couldn't see his surfaced head from the shore with how dark it was. Unfortunately that wasn't the case though, and in a panic she dove into the water, hoping he was somewhere nearby and the current hadn't taken him anywhere - or any predatory animals for that matter. She dove into the water with only a little bit of concern for herself. She was more worried about the figured that had disappeared beneath water, and she also considered herself a good swimmer. She always had been since she was young, though she just figured it was a natural-born skill of hers. Granted, it was a natural born skill, though not for the typical genetics she assumed accounted for it. Unfortunately, the current was a bit stronger than even she was used to swimming in, and she didn't have long to look for the missing figured before she was struggling against the current. Mentally cursing to herself in her head, she went to swim back up to the surface before she lost all energy fighting the currently, only for something to suddenly latch on with razor-sharp teeth into her leg, yanking her further into the depths of the sea. The sudden pain shooting through her leg caused her to instinctively gasp out in pain, inhaling a mouthful of water in the process and choking on the water in her lungs, her vision blurring from the struggle and lack of oxygen, before something in her body seemed to click over from the survival instincts as she found it easier to breath, though at the moment was in too much of a panic and struggle to really realize how little that made sense since she was still underwater.
