    Default Heart soul and memory 4 A farewell to love (IC)

    Episode 8 Scene 2

    Okay, we're all together, any ideas what you want to do? Ophelia asks after calming down.

    Those words, send you in a state of panic, how can you possibly please this goddess of power?

    Allure =Indoor pool. +3 VP with Ophelia

    Conflict =Tackle football. +3 VP with Ophelia.

    Luck =Pick a good idea at random. +3 VP with Ophelia.

    If players pick the same roll and tie they both get vp, otherwise highest mod tiebreaks, and if mods are the same, they reroll.

    Alice eagerly supported Emma's suggestion. "Ooo, a pool would be perfect!" she said, throwing her arm around Ophelia's shoulders. "I mean, think about it: kind of hard to be clumsy while you're in a pool. Or we can just lie around the side of the pool checking out all the cute guys and girls in swimsuits," she added with a wink.

    Shameless justified by the fact that this is still the same day as at the end of the last episode, where I used it, so of course she's still wearing the same thing. Just couldn't work a description of her outfit in naturally there.

    "Oh right! I should have it around here somewhere..." Emma said, digging through the saddlebag on her wheelchair, "Ah, here it is!"

    She pulls out the small squeeze bottle and sets it aside, "You know, I heard other seapeople know how to filter chlorine or process it or something, but when I try it I end up just purging it out of the entire pool, which makes people mad for some reason."

    "Removing chlorine is a hazard if it is not properly moved to another location, and the chlorine is in the pool for the first place for sanitation purposes. You might consider talking to the management. Some pools make use of salt instead. If your church could find the funds, they might be able to pay to have the system replaced."

    "Yeah, I think that's what the ones I have at home use," Emma says, "Although my room is probably closer to an aquarium than a pool, come to think of it... anyway, yeah, that's a good idea. I'll talk to my followers and see if that's something we can do. Thanks for the idea, Athena!"

    Isn't too much salt toxic to water nymphs though. Ophelia comments.

    The incubus pipes up. "It's actually worse for them, most nymphs breath like amphibians. So Emma will dry out and get itchy scales. They would actually die. You want to make money; invent a non chlorine, non salt pool sanitizer."

    He shuffles around his backpack quickly. "And I have my gym shorts, so close enough."

    While Tachi might be in his element on land, Emma knows where her element is. She sets her bag gently on the nearby bench, then wheels herself as fast as she can towards an empty spot in the deep end of the pool. Her chair vaults over the edge and drops into the water, creating a huge splash that drenches anyone nearby, who in this case happens to be Tachi in his dashing pool shorts.

    A couple of seconds later, the wheelchair, now lacking its former occupant, breaks through the surface and launches into the air. As it starts to come back down, an emerald green fish tail pops up and hits it with a loud SMACK, sending it flying back onto the land. Aimed with pinpoint accuracy, it ends up skidding to a halt directly next to the bench where Emma left her belonging, none the worse for wear save for being drenched in pool water.

    Beneath the surface of the water, one can see the red-haired mermaid zooming around the bottom of the pool, gracefully darting between the other swimmers. Occasionally she breaks this up by jumping into the air, filling it with giddy laughter before she hits the water once again.

    "What are you guys waiting for?" she yells at the people who haven't yet joined her during one of her leaps, "Come on!"

    Spoiler: Roll

    Strong Luck (+1), Fortune Talisman (Tachi, +2), +3 total. Probably a waste of a power on such a small roll, but I refuse to fail the first roll since the beach episode that Emma's gotten the chance to actually be in the water.

    "Good question, Tachi," Alice said as she arrived from the changing room, coming up from behind Ophelia to put one arm around her friend's shoulder. She was, of course, wearing a small pink bikini that left little to the imagination. "See anything you like, Ophelia? I sure do - several things, in fact," she added with a wink, glancing over both Tachi and Ophelia appreciatively.

    She giggled as Emma's splash engulfed Tachi. "Yep, several for sure," she repeated suggestively.

    No doubt the nerd's carefully researched and peer reviewed discussion on water based games would have entertained someone.

    Ophelia was only partly this someone.

    A couple of seconds later, the wheelchair, now lacking its former occupant, breaks through the surface and launches into the air. As it starts to come back down, an emerald green fish tail pops up and hits it with a loud SMACK, sending it flying back onto the land. Aimed with pinpoint accuracy, it ends up skidding to a halt directly next to the bench where Emma left her belonging, none the worse for wear save for being drenched in pool water.

    Beneath the surface of the water, one can see the red-haired mermaid zooming around the bottom of the pool, gracefully darting between the other swimmers. Occasionally she breaks this up by jumping into the air, filling it with giddy laughter before she hits the water once again.

    "What are you guys waiting for?" she yells at the people who haven't yet joined her during one of her leaps, "Come on!"

    Strong Luck (+1), Fortune Talisman (Tachi, +2), +3 total. Probably a waste of a power on such a small roll, but I refuse to fail the first roll since the beach episode that Emma's gotten the chance to actually be in the water.
    Oh....oh wow.... You hear Ophelia mutter at Tachi as a little boy screams. "Look daddy, it's Ariel!"

    Allure: Strong Roll: +1, Shameless: +2, Temptation: +2, Total: +5
    +1 if Soldier of Sin activates
    Um. uh... I mean.... wow... Ophelia blushed.

I sure do - several things, in fact," she added with a wink, glancing over both Tachi and Ophelia appreciatively.

    She giggled as Emma's splash engulfed Tachi. "Yep, several for sure," she repeated suggestively.

    Allure, Shameless +2, Touchy-Feely +1 = +3 total.
    Meep! She let out as Alice got all touchy feely, with both girls wearing not very much.

    You can see Ophelia go as red as a beet.

    Emma rolls her eyes at how easily Ophelia gets distracted. Then, hearing the boy's squeals of excitement, she decides to humor him a little. She swims over to the edge of the pool closest to where he's standing, then surfaces just enough to rest her arms and head on it.

    "Hi!" she says, looking up at the boy with a warm smile, "You like mermaids, huh?"

    "Yeah, Ariel's my favorite!" He says brightly crouching down. "Her voice is so pretty."

    "Well duh, but mine isn't half-bad either," Emma said with a chuckle, "My name's Emma, by the way. What's yours?"
