IN DEEP WATER
CARRO's PL: 100 || LEO's PL: 200,000 (NOT PRESENT) || TIANUM's PL: 7,000
The sun beat down on South City's local shoreline, basking the scattered civilians in its warm rays. The chill of autumn was approaching fast, and many were eager to get a few last tropical vacations in before the seasons prohibited it. Carro was not one of those people.The high and mighty President of Earth lied on a sandy towel a ways away from the coast on his stomach, grumbling as he turned onto his side in a feeble attempt to get comfortable. He wore a pale blue wetsuit that was still untouched by the ocean waters. He stuck out like a sore thumb, his pale skin starkly contrasting the tanned hues of the other, much more avid beachgoers. "Come on, Carro, the water's fine!" A voice called out to him from the ocean nearby. His assistant and close friend, Tianum, had somehow managed to drag him out on this venture. He'd agreed to "go out and about" in a tired daze the day before, but a 'relaxing break' was not what he expected. "It is not fine," He corrected his friend with a growl. "I am NOT going into that freezing liquid, and that's final." Tianum rolled her eyes, her scaled arms folding. "You get used to it after a minute, y'know. You're going to miss out!"Carro was... exceedingly stubborn. More so than usual. Tianum had seen him tirelessly working- she'd expected him to take a break or at least a celebratory lunch-out after his revival, but it was straight back to work for him. She didn't think she'd ever seen him sleep since. One way or another, his friend was determined to get at least a little weight off his back. Though judging by how he turned away from her to bury his face back into the book he was reading on the beachside, that was going to be a lot easier said than done. It was like the phrase "take a break" wasn't comprehensible to him sometimes. "...Do you at least want me to go and grab some lunch at the boardwalk?" Carro heard his stomach growl. He really had to get back to work, maybe he could work on some documents from his ZPhone, but... "...Yeah, sure." Something, anything to eat sounded good right about now.Tianum sighed, thankful Carro was at least somewhat willing, quickly taking flight to hover out of the water and back to the shore. Glancing back after a few seconds to see the President quickly picking up his ZPhone when he assumed his draconic friend wasn't looking, she sighed in defeat. Someway she had to get him to relax for more than thirty seconds...
