The old creatures in this world that hid themselves from the humans and other creatures that walk among the dry lands. They were tied to staying away, not to be interested of the others that live above them. And yet, it was hard not to. Many others have tried to see what it was like on dry land but they ended up being slayed, captured, hunted for food, and stolen of their own water element magic. Only a few sirens that remained underwater in the wetlands were told of the rules of staying away from the monsters above. One of the sirens was swimming around as her mermaid tail sways behind her but she didn't say anything else to holding her water pearl staff weapon. Her eyes looked around seeing the waters here cold and empty for a while now but no one knows why.
She had a figure their was something here taking out the other sirens that came near this area. Her other friends that was hunted or something else. she looked around again before swimming down at the lake bottom to see other items from other sirens there but it seems others been here much longer for years now. She keeps looking around in hopes of finding something here.
Meanwhile above was a boat that was swimming around with hunting gear and other things since they were given the job of hunting creatures here in the water and even steal what value they have. In some way, they found many creatures including sirens. The boat leader was checking his crew to see them getting everything ready for the hunting out here and hopes of finding something. So far, they been hunting for a couple months before with finding fish and other non priced like things in this world but they hope of finding something.
"Alright sir, the hunting gear is done and ready. Shall we go ahead and cast the net?" One asked but he checks the waters below them but shook his head.
"Not yet, we have to be sure not to disturb the creatures since one almost ate us one time since 'someone' castes a harpoon at it." he said glaring at one crew member who looked down ashamed since he almost caused them to get killed.
"Either way, we will be ready to cast out the net when I say so. Understood?" he said as the crew nod and waited for his command. Back in the water, the siren was swimming head while trying to find out what was going on or what caused this till her eyes sees the casting shadow of the boat above her that told her of humans that came. After a while, she slowly follows after them but she held her spear that was getting charged up with water magic and takes aim. They had to be the ones that caused her own kind to almost be extinct. She keeps a firm grip of her staff before releasing a water spear attack that crashes into the boat. Brandon felt the boat jolt forward as his crew held onto what they could, wondering what was going on or what caused that.
"Sir, I think something attacked us!"
"What do we do!? Shall we cast out the nets?!" One yells as another one hits the boat to make water splash onto them and the boat. He looks around wondering what was going on before sensing something in the water moving but he feels another thing hitting the boat once more.
He didn't say to release the nets yet while seeing it swimming around to keep it from their view. He had a feeling their was something there and trying to attack them as a warning but he sees it getting closer but before he could speak, One of his crew members takes a harpoon and threw it in the water. She was ready to aim again before dodging the harpoon but more and getting thrown by the other crew members.
"What are you doing!? I didn't say-"
The boat jolted again when another water jet hits the boat but one crew member tries another idea with tossing another one that was a little more heavy. She looked around seeing the area silent again but when she tries a on head attack, the harpoon stabs into her mermaid tail that made her screech out in pain. The crew saw the water darken with blood before On his command, they pull a level and releases the strong hold nets as it splashes into the water in hopes it got their target. They waited seeing the water still dark with blood before seeing the rope getting tugged on.
They got her. Quickly, they begin pulling her out of the water as she begins splashing around but they pull her out to see her in he net but her weapon was tangled along with her. The men blushed seeing her beauty before the leader pulls the net over and has the net pull down to be placed in a holding water tank. The siren coughed slightly but still was bleeding that she sees them surround her and take her weapon.
"A siren. I thought they were long gone but I guess not. My, she sure is a beauty.." the leader said with a smile as he takes her spear and his crew places her inside while she was bleeding but changes into her human self since her tail was in pain from the spear. However, she wasn't sure why or what they want.
They head back to the city with the prize to see what they can get for her. In town, people were busy with selling and things but others was looking around for some things or others to take with him during his travels before heading back home. Some wanted to see what they can buy for dinner later on but it seems nothing was seen to interests but before turning off, a few owns eyes catches a crew of males that was pushing a water tank with a cloth covering it. Did they have something or was it just another round of fish? Whatever it was people was crowding around to see what it was they had this time and wonders if it was any value.
Later on The crew got her in a holding water dome as people came closer to see the sea siren in the water. She looked away from the humans that watched her, seeing her covering her naked top but her mermaid tail was also used to cover some of it too, even from it bleeding.
"Isn't she a beauty? It took us many years to catch every siren seen by man but we never guessed we missed one. Not anymore though, eh?" he said as the other crew members laughed in agreeing.
"True captain. Thanks to you catching this siren, you will be rich in millions. Others know how rare these sea beasts are and how much they can be when sold in the black market." another said as the captain looks at the siren once more as she was looking away in the other direction, seeing her hair moving in the water.
"Oh, don't be like that my dear. If you are lucky, someone might buy you so they can keep you as a pet or dinner. I hear Sirens are delicious to eat." He said to see her look at the captain angry as she made the water bubble a bit.
she spoke in a different tongue of some insult to humans but they just laughed since it sounded like a threat.
"Nice try my dear but being scary like that won't save you from being food or sold off to others. We will make millions off of you or we could keep you so you can be our cabin girl."
She looked even more angry before turning her face away from him but the captain saw her wound that was still bleeding. The harpoon did some damage to her scales and lower area but it didn't seem to bad since she was healing herself which the captain didn't approve of. He gets up to grab a electric rod and place it in the water as it shocks it. The siren screams out in pain from that but it came out in bubbles, curling up since he didn't want her to heal so quickly like that.
He wanted her to behave like a good Siren or else he might change his mind in letting her be sold and keep her to himself and his crew. As he and the others laughed at her misery, the captain just smiled from his victory.
