I swam through the loch, taking in the view. It was wonderful down here. And... green. Definitely green.
I felt something wrap around my leg. I stopped, twisting to see what it was.
I saw nothing, at first. I thought perhaps a stray plant had gotten tangled around me, but there was nothing there. Then I felt something slither along my leg. I watched, fascinated, as two serpentine forms drew closer to my torso.
They were clear, like the water- the only things marking their presences were their glowing green eyes. What are you? I wondered.
Suddenly, their eyes disappeared, and glowing green runes flashed on their heads. I didn't understand any of it, but it didn't deter them from snaking around my arms. You want to come with me?
More runes. Looks like they can sense what I'm thinking. Unfortunately, I cannot understand your language. I decided to see if the famiglia might have any literature on these beings.
I got out of the loch. Their serpentine bodies were easier to see in the air, and it was apparent that they actually were made of water. I levitated two spheres of lake water, and they looked at each other before getting into a sphere. Their heads jutted out, observing my every move.
Very interesting. I shook the water off, and put my clothes back on. As I ran towards the inn, twin water balls behind me, I called out. "Anyone have any books on rare and possibly magical creatures I can peruse?"
((Apparently, strange and wonderful things abound in Ireland's lochs. Like Nessie.))
