Mollusc had returned to Namek. It was a long time coming. This was supposed to be his homeworld but he was sent to Vegeta. Why he sent was still a mystery. Yet he came to pray. Not to Porunga though. He didn't know who to pray too but he thought he might find answers. He remembered Ramen and how she suggested he'd pray in harsh conditions they may give him the insight he was looking for. Mollusc sat down looking at the bright lakes. He could not say if that would help but he was just going to meditate and pray. Maybe he'd find nothing in his dreams. Or maybe he'd find what he needed to do next or should do next. "I hope I can see something. Don't leave me in the dark." Mollusc said with a solemn tone as he waited for something, anything to pull his attention away. Whatever did may be a sign if he was lucky.
PL: 3,000 (Combined) | Active PL: 750 [Verde] Namek was still.
Not to say it was devoid of life - but encounters with others out in the outskirts of any city all but ensured that one would never meet another soul on their journey. It was a bit calming, yet frightening at the same time. Nobody to bother, yet the unknown finds a way to creep in and ruin the experience regardless. The stillness persisted. Naught seemed dangerous, for the moment, and in a rare case of it happening since the Aliens had arrived on the planet, they defused. Each into their proper components; totaling four colors. None spoke. A silent agreement had already passed when they were together of what to do.
Interests were unique - partly why they had left their planet behind, to begin with. An hour of free time to explore what each wished. After, they'd meet here. Failure to do so would be reprimanded - what if they had encountered danger? For now, though, that was not a worry. As it happened, Verde was the one to find the shrine. Empty? Or not. He saw none, but that was no proof. They had yet to learn to sense the power of others, so to err on the side of caution was what they did.
He cautiously stepped in, foot softly reverberating off the structure's material. Verde paused. If any was here, they'd have heard him. To turn back now, or to continue onwards? Curiosity, in the end, won.
Mollusc sat but there was nothing. It was slient which was not surprising. He was about to leave but he heard something. He'd opened his eyes no one was in front of him. He'd turned his head back as he saw a creature with green skin. He had never seen anything like it. Mollusc pulled himself to his feet. He didn't seem dangerous or anything. He just seemed to be odd with the odd color pattern. From how he looked it made him think he was made more of water then flesh. Yet he seemed solid. Mollusc sighed. "Who might you be?" Mollusc asked trying to first figure out who or what he was talking too. Just to judge if he was friendly or dangerous.
This was not good. A Namekian had seen him enter and possibly violate a religious structure whilst they were inside. Was there retribution to be had? Verde froze for a moment, unaware of exactly how powerful Mollusc was but certainly paranoid due to his very nature. He'd never in his current state take a fight to anything unless it meant life or death. And right now, his squad was split. Not exactly able to form expressions, Verde's body language revealed what his lack of a 'face' could - nervousness. Not that he'd assume the Namekian would instantly attack, but in this particular case Verde had enough hindsight to realize he had walked onto sacred ground without stopping to consider the possible ramifications of his actions. So, when the Alien across from him opted to speak, it came as a relief.
Curiosity seemed to fuel its motive for asking - not unexpected given a Chromasian's odd biology in comparison to most species of this part of the galaxy. The best thing he could do was act intelligent and non-threatening, lest he wishes to be swiftly taken care of. He straightened his posture into a loose stance, hands at his sides as he drew to full height. "My name... is Verde. Peaceful Traveler. I apologize if I have accidentally offended you by setting foot in your kinds' holy structure. I was simply curious as to what it was at first."
Mollusc was suprised when he spoke. He was unsure if he was a creature that could. IT was just, in general, an odd experience. He introduced himself as Verde. He seemed to just want to know what this structure was. "Oh, this." He'd look at the statue of Porunga a frown forming on his face. Nothing just as he expected. "This is a statue to Porunga. He is a god on this planet. They are these orbs called dragonballs that people can get wishes from. Porunga is the one who gives those wishes so once every namekaian year he can be summoned. I've never seen it myself just heard rumors and stories." Mollusc explained waving the statue off. "Plus I got what I wanted out of praying. I was hoping to meet people. Maybe be able to gather the knowledge i'm seeking. So what brings you to namek in particular. I'm sure a traveler like you didn't just choose a planet at random." Mollusc asked trying to figure out what namek so special to this man or if he had just randomly chosen to travel to this region.
