Scene; The Ryu-Fujin
What was that pounding? Oh, right. Her head.
Aveline woke to the loving embrace of yet another skyman style hangover. She rose from her bed Like an undead from the grave. All pained moans and trying to learn the world again. First, she looked around the room, seeing all the maps hung in her cabin. The little trophies from good plunder. Her private liquor cabinet, placed right beside her desk, which was covered in charts and more maps. Plans for the next job. Then she saw her mirror, her nude self inside it on her bed, and the little bump beside her, still sleeping. She looked down at the woman slumbering beside her and smiled - Must have picked up someone fun last night - before getting out of bed and walking toward her cabinet to retrieve a fine bottle of spiced rum. She took a swig and set it on her desk, then started to look for her clothes.
Finding her clothes scattered about the cabin as though a small twister came through. shirt of the floor, trousers hanging on the coat hook, and her coat was... hu, in the cabinet. odd she hadn't noticed that before. Regardless, she started with her pants, grabbing them off the hook. She slipped them on and began wondering where her belt went, before seeing it tangled in the bed,
Maybe that explains why she was sore. then again, she could have fallen. Then there was a noticeable shaking in the cabin. It surprised her a second, but she felt it was familiar. Quickly, she stepped out of her cabin door -still mostly unclothed - and looked ahead at her ship, covered in shade. Looking up, she saw the underbelly of a great one. A flying whale above them, going past on it's gentle way.
"well..." She muttered to herself.
A grandiose Cetacea Gold. The markings on the whale - which had a slight yellowish-gold glow to them curving along its side and branching clear to it's massive maw from the end of its tail - gave away it's breed. For a moment, she felt sad that, likely, she was the only one on board who knew such things about the fine beasts. Oh well! That simply meant she had opportunity to teach it to the crew!
At that thought though, she gave a thought a wonder; where was everyone?
