Ever since the huge discovery that resulted in the Island Whers joining the ranks at Atricis, the entire coast seemed slightly obsessed with finding more islands. The Pearlrider’s were of course doing their part in the search. Half of the time, a rider would volunteer even, to be sent out in a new direction, swim as far as they can, and see what they could find. It was dangerous, but the Pearls had ruled the seas for turns, and their rider’s seemed more than willing to take on the extra risk.
Iver’vas and Fulgervas were no different. In fact, they had gotten the opportunity to head out, and had pounced on it. When Koda’vis heard, however, the man had insisted he join them. They were planning on going farther out than they ever had before, and the pair had just gotten the news that River was expecting. The man wasn’t about to let his woman, who was carrying his child, go miles and miles off shore by herself. There were hints that there might be a storm that direction too.
So they set out, and it was hours before they stopped. It was a peaceful, quiet journey. Swimming on Pearls didn’t always lend itself to easy conversations as the creatures slid and curled their way through the waves. River’s mind was full of thoughts bouncing around. She was with child. It was Koda’s. Her family would probably be furious, and that thought entertained her to no end. She glanced towards the man. Her ex-fiance. His family probably wouldn’t be too thrilled either. It was almost ironic, in fact. She had been sent to drag him back North to get married, that had failed. Their families dissolved the betrothal. And then they got together, as rocky as it was usually. Koda and herself seemed to thrive on the conflict between them, their interactions full of soft touches and caresses just as often as it was full of yelling and seemingly almost violent passion at times.
She glanced towards the man on his massive Pearl swimming not far from where her and Fulgervas was. With a quiet touch, her own White-Blue slowed and turned to get closer to Ukamevis. When they were at a more comfortable talking distance, she sighed softly, ”No sign of anything yet...Unless you noticed something?” She knew if he had seen hint of something interesting, he would speak up, but she was debating how much farther they wanted to go.
