As the moon got replaced by the early morning sun, Aqua and Yvie said their goodbyes. Both somehow knew this wasn't a definite goodbye. That they would see each other again.
"I never had a sister before" Yvie said, hugging Aqua once again, before turning into a snake, so she could swim.
"Me neither" Aqua said, hugging back, before she started tying the silver and the clothes around Yvie.
"If you go looking, you'll find more, I'm sure" Aqua continued, as she secured the knot she had just tied.
"We aren't the only children of the Moon after all" She said in a low tone, as she petted Yvie's head. The Lizard had been quiet so far, but this caught it off guard.
"What do you mean 'Children of the Moon'? She is the Mphhhmph" The Lizard outrageously started, but his mouth got shut by Aqua, as she quickly took a little water bubble around it.
"If you open your mouth, it will be ten times worse than the burning water from before" Aqua warned, as she turned smiling back to Yvie, who was amused at the situation. To her, it was very helpful that the Lizard didn't get to say anything else. Her instinct had kicked in, but she was too slow to react herself, as she currently had no arms.
"Now be a good guide, and help her instead of creating problems for her, okay?" Aqua asked, as she removed the water bubble.
The Lizard Hmph-ed and looked away, going out into the ocean without saying anything. It wasn't about to partake in conversation with someone that treated it like this.
Yvie and Aqua once again said goodbye.
'I'l look for the thing you lost' Yvie hissed assuring at Aqua, not thinking she could understand it.
"Oh, I never said 'I' lost it. I just mentioned it was something lost and important. Now, be on your way, I'll make sure the burning water isn't going to be in your way for at least a while, but hurry up" Aqua said, having understood Yvie just fine, now pushing her and the Lizard away.
Once again, Yvie was alone. With the Lizard. Who was silent. It didn't complain. It didn't try to climb on her back. It just swam right next to her, deep in thought. Somehow, it felt disturbing.
'I feel like I just got some really important information…' Yvie told herself, as she decided to ignore the Lizard for a while.
'What's Children of the Moon?' She pondered on this a bit. It felt somehow secure. Like she didn't mind that. But it once again raised more questions than answers.
'Do you know?' Yvie hissingly asked the Lizard, forgetting she didn't have the first part of the question.
"I know everything" The Lizard assured her, lying through its teeth once again, regressing back to simply pretending, as it was annoyed at everything.
'So what's the Children of the Moon?' Yvie asked, not hoping for much, but simply wanting to know a tiny bit.
"It does not matter. It does not relate to you" The Lizard simply stated, getting even more annoyed. It knew what she was, but she didn't let it tell her. It had bothered it from the start, but lately it had been bothering it even more.
Especially the part where it went with her. Had it simply just been so dumbfounded that it agreed to everything? And why was it a Lizard?
Not noticing, the Lizard had started to wonder as well. Not admitting it to itself, as it would break a core of its being. Making it doubt what it thought it knew. Unlike Yvie, the Lizard couldn't make do with admitting it really didn't know anything. Unlike Yvie, it clung tightly to the information it thought it had.
Yvie didn't ask the Lizard any further.
'What did I expect' Yvie thought to herself as they moved on. She wondered about everything she had seen so far. All of the questions she had gathered. About Aqua. About the thing that was lost, that she had to find. About the Moon.
'If there is children of the moon…' She thought,
'Then is there children of the sun as well?' She entertained her amusing thoughts, as she looked towards the shining orb, that hurt her eyes as she looked. It had once again caught her skin, making it scorch anything in sight, lighting it up, as if it tried to burn her.
'I might not like the moon very much…' Yvie thought to herself, as she kept thinking about how it felt controlling to her.
'But I don't think the sun likes me' She concluded, giving it a death glare, as she looked around for some sort of shadow, but nothing was in sight.
'What now?' She hummed to herself, as she felt excited once again, though the feeling of loss from saying goodbye to Aqua, still hadn't left her.
"Where was HER guide" The Lizard mumbled in a high voice beside her, unlike the constant mumbling it had done for a while now, but Yvie chose to ignore it. The Lizard didn't make much sense to her.
They kept swimming in silence, both swallowed up in their own world. The Lizard occasionally said something out loud, but it was mostly complaints, as it slowly reverted to normal.
Once fully over the way it had been treated by Aqua, it started trying to catch a ride on Yvie, which ended up making them both feel at ease, bickering as they were used to. The sun kept bullying Yvie, as looking for shadow seemed impossible. She wondered about simply diving, but only barely kept her clothes dry, and it would seem like a waste to dip it fully into the sea.
'I can't dry it like Aqua could' Yvie hissed a bit, feeling both a sense of excitement at what she had seen, but also feeling something else well up inside of her. Something she hadn't felt before. It kept gnawing at her insides, making her in a bad mood.
'It's not anger…' She concluded, but it felt a bit like it.
'It's also not sadness' She wondered, as she went through a mental list of emotions.
'Am I… Jealous?' She finally asked herself, feeling like it was the correct word to put on this particular sensation. She was indeed jealous of Aqua who seemed even more free than her, and could used magic freely as well. Controlling the water was amazing.
'If I could control water, I would make a water shield so the sun couldn't bully me' Yvie decided, but she couldn't.
'I don't like this feeling…' She told herself, as if she didn't already know this.
'I don't like it at all…'
