There was a random guy doing free tattoos in the cabin of her boat.

Her boat wasn't all that big -- it was built for speed rather than to accomodate a large number of people. Nevertheless, there were at least a couple of people down there with the tattoo guy plus the poor woman he was tattooing -- was that a spaghetti bowl being drawn on her arm?

Skyler snorted out a laugh and went back up to the deck of her boat, the sunset making the waters around them almost glow. There were a dozen or so boats moored to Pacifidlog, all of them sporting fairy lights and cheerful partygoers -- the beach party had slowly spilled onto the ocean and there were even more boats coming to join them.

The music was pumping out of several speakers spread throughout the docks and the boats, and Skyler found herself swaying to its hypnotizing bass.

There two bottles in one of her hands, both empty, and a huge water gun in the other. A crown of seashells peeked out from between her curls, ever so slightly askew due to the water war she'd participated in earlier.

With the ease of practice, Skyler prepared herself then jumped from her boat onto the next, catching herself amongst the throngs of people before throwing her head back and laughing out loud.

She set the bottles down on the nearest counter, making the bartender quirk an eyebrow. A lopsided, angelic grin spilled over her lips, which was made all the more convincing by the halo of wild blond curls around her face.

"Drink for one?" She leaned against the counter and quickly paid for her drink, a monstrous bright pink cocktail whose name would probably be something ridiculous like Blue Wailord Sunset or the Pecha Berry Daiquiri.

Oh boy, did he love a good party.

And Hoennian's sure knew how to throw them! Holon, while a beautiful remote island in its own right (albeit with a far weirder and alien climate), couldn't hope to compare to the well-funded and creatively designed festivities here. The energy in the room was enough to keep his Morpeko, Goodcop, well... good. And the two-faced rodent scrambled from ship to ship in search of bar nuts, happy-as-can-be while Atlan drank and met the rejection of pretty girls time and time again.

Despite his spurned flirtatious advances, however, he was having a good time party-hopping and mingling with the locals. His latest venture had him stumbling through the dance crowd with a half empty Mint Jumpluff in his hand. Through some miraculous feat of physics, none of it had spilled by the time he reached the bar. "Drink for one?"

The bartender was about to get right to it, of course, but stopped when he saw the man beside her gulp down the last of his drink without pause. When he was done, he set his glass down on the counter and held up two fingers with a wide smile, having heard Skyler but not turned around to set eyes on her yet. "Go ahead and make that dos, pal!" He added, clinging to the bar. 

And as their host got to it, the Holon native's brilliant blue eyes eventually noticed the blonde standing beside him. He turned around, not so smoothly leaning against the counter with one arm before winking... with both eyes. "Name's Atlan. Atlan Beckett. What are we having?"

No, literally, what had he just ordered?

She was waiting for the cute bartender to make her cocktail when someone else came to the bar, procceeded to down half his drink in an instant, set the glass onto the counter and asked for another of what she was having. 'Well, well...'

Skyler took the time while the man was distracted to subtly (or as subtly as she could, which was not at all) study him. Clad in a white polo shirt and white shorts, hair carefully arranged and relaxed flip-flops, he was the quintessential tourist. For a moment Skyler looked down at her own still-wet t-shirt, seafoam green gym shorts and --

'Where is my other flip-flop?' She blinked confusedly down at her feet, one clad in a flip-flop and the other bare, but quickly dismissed the question. She'd probably lost it while jumping from boat to boat. She'd find it. Eventually.

The blonde did her best not to laugh at guy's attempts at being smooth, but that double wink did her in. She snorted at first, trying to hold it in, but when she couldn't anymore she let out a peal of laughter, having to hold her belly after a few moments. "Oh man, you l-looked so dumb right now..."

She was still kind of giggly when she accepted her drink, using the straw to gulp down some of it. Hmmmm, fruity (she loved the taste of fruit in her drinks) -- and strong.

"Nice to meet you. Skyler Dross, professional diver and..." She leaned in his direction and lowered her voice, as if telling him a secret, her eyes flashing quicksilver. "...Treasure hunter."

Maybe she'd had more to drink than she'd thought. She focused her attention on her drink at his question and shrugged. "Beats me. Sweet Sour Cherubi? Pink Wailord Tonic? Clefairy Dreams?"

"Pecha Berry Daiquiri," supplied the bartender, the smirk on his face betraying his amusement. Skyler turned to Atlan and raised her glass for a toast. "There you go! Pecha Berry Daiquiri."

Atlan's smile faltered when the blonde laughed and made her remark. But it took more than that to dissuade a Holonite! Especially a slightly inebriated one. So he issued a little bow... or the closest thing to one he could manage while still clinging to the bar. "Being this charming ain't much, but it's honest work." He assured brightly, rising from his bow before leaning in a bit closer with a smile. "And at least it made you laugh, hm?"

His cheesy affections, however, were put to a brief pause when the bartender returned with their drinks. Like a kid being given candy, Atlan was quick to put it in his hands before eagerly trying it. The taste of fruit hit instantly and hard, and he made a face at it as it melted in his mouth. But eventually that expression settled into delight. Which was then quickly overtaken by astonishment at the mention of being a treasure hunter. "What? Are you kidding me? That's so cool!"

As she answered his question and raised her glass for a toast, the young man pushed himself off the bar counter and encircled her with curious eyes. "Forget the drink," He responded, clinking glasses with her anyway. "We got a real life Lara Croft over here! The ultimate fusion between babe and badass adventurer!"

When he nearly stumbled on his own feet and splashed a little bit of his drink on his arm, however, he clung to the bar counter again on the other side of her. Abashedly, the lad smiled at her before grabbing some bar napkins with his free hand and patting away at his arm. "Still haven't got my sea legs. I called the post office and they don't have the faintest idea of what I'm talking about." He, very badly, joked.

Just who was this guy? Skyler felt a flush spread over her face, but wasn't sure if it was due to the drinks, the heat or the guy's blalant (but hilarious) attempts at being charming. She noticed the way Atlan was gripping the counter as if it were a lifeline, and an amused smile stretched her lips. Now that she thought of it, though, she was also leaning a bit heavily on the counter. Oops.

"What, being a treasure hunter? It has its perks." She usually wasn't one to brag, but ah, to hell with it. She had precious few people she could talk to about her passion, she would totally seize the chance if someone gave her an opening, the poor bastard.

Her eyes immediately brightened with enthusiasm and her drink tilted precariously as she gestured wildly in time with her words, "I get to explore the ocean, go into the unknown, dive into ruins and sunken ships, find precious stones and forgotten objects..."

Of course, it was also a very demanding job and carried huge, sometimes life-threatening risks. She'd never been quite at death's door, but she'd gotten injured a fair amount of times. "Look, here!" She pointed at a scar between her arm and shoulder, looking strangely excited about it. "This is where a guy tried to harpoon me."

Yeah, she was definitely drunker than she'd thought.

She blinked at Atlan's sudden exclamation of her being a mix of -- babe and badass adventurer? This Lara Croft person sounded really cool, though. Skyler would love to be friends with her. 

She was about to say so when Atlan stumbled and spilled some of his drink on his arm. Skyler let out a snort at his poorly made joke, taking another gulp of her drink. She vaguely noticed that the bright pink liquid in her glass was halfway gone. This Pecha Berry thing was good.

"Well, let's get you your sea legs then, fancy guy!" 

The blonde suddenly got to her feet, making an herculean effort not to stumble or otherwise appear unbalanced, which was made all the more difficult due to her only having one shoe.

She grabbed Atlan's hand and made her way to the deck of the ship, where the darkening sky greeted them along with crowds of dancing people. 


Skyler grinned lopsidedly back at him, her blond curls flying every which way. "C'mon!"

Growing up in Holon, a secluded island with only a colony of researchers and their families, Atlan had learned to appreciate certain things in life others his age might have considered strange. Scars were definitely one of them, and his inebriated state shattered any timidity he might have had about Skyler recoiling from the amazed look in his eyes. "Wow... look at that." He blinked.

It didn't take long, however, before their conversation suddenly moved into action. To say he was surprised would be an understatement as the blonde unabashedly took him by the hand and pulled him towards the dance floor. Chugging down the last of his drink before setting it down on the counter, he stumbled and nearly tripped over his own feet as they headed out. Though he was quick to play it off with a smile and quick comb of his hair with his now free hand if she looked.

"So my sea legs... we're gonna find them on the dance floor, huh?" He remarked doubtfully, looking down at everyone's legs as they danced to the rhythm of the booming beat. The rocking of the boat made everything feel a bit... off-balanced. But, then again, perhaps that was the alcohol doing what it did best. "None of these look like mine, but... I'm willing to give it a try."

Talk about kicking someone out of the nest to teach them how to fly, right? He could dance, of course. But dancing on a boat tipsy wasn't exactly a niche he had ever developed before. That much was evident when the boat rocked again and he stumbled against Skyler for balance, laughing it off and muttering an apology under his breath. They could be chatting by the barbecue instead, enjoying some more drinks. But somehow this seemed like a lot more fun.

"So you gonna show me what kind of moves you got, Lara Croft, or what?"

He smirked, backing up to give her some space... but also to securely put a hand against the boat's railing.

Skyler was so intent on going out to dance that she almost didn't notice Atlan's stumbling, only looking back briefly when he seemed to be taking his own sweet time getting to the dance floor. The corner of her mouth quirked up in amusement and she all but dragged him into the crowd moving in tandem with the music blasting out of the closest speakers.

"Good," Skyler replied, suddenly noticing the half-empty cocktail in her unoccupied hand. She took the cocktail glass to her mouth and chugged the remaining liquid down, quickly turning around to shove the now empty glass into the hands of a confused-looking partygoer before turning back to Atlan, cocktail already forgotten. "How would you find your sea legs if you're not looking for them, fancy guy?" She attempted to wink at him, not sure she'd done it successfully -- but not really caring either.

She was getting into the rhythm of the music when Atlan stumbled into her and she grabbed him by instinct, holding onto his shoulders. She blinked a couple of times before throwing her head back and laughing. She waved away his apology, still chuckling, eyes bright. "Good thing I'm here to save you."

The subtle challenge in Atlan's words did not go over Skyler's head, and as it happened with all challenges in Skyler's life, she took it very seriously. She was about to move away from Atlan so she could move more freely (or as freely as one could in a crowded boat) when she stumbled on her remaining flip-flop. She flailed for a moment before her sea legs kicked in (no pun intended) and she managed to right herself.

The glare she threw at the offending object on her foot could have melted steel. She suddenly had a big brain moment and wasted no time before taking the flip-flop in her hand, throwing her arm back and unceremoniously chucking it at the crowd (she didn't want to dirty the ocean with her old flip-flops okay?).

There wasn't much that could be heard over the sound of the music, but Skyler caught the small commotion that was caused by her flying flip-flop. A couple of people were looking around and there was a guy rubbing the back of his head, but otherwise most people were too far gone to notice where the flip-flop had come from.

"Much better," Skyler said, now barefooted and feeling free as a bird. "Let's dance," she challenged Atlan back, finally letting her body follow the rhythm of the bass-heavy music.

Atlan couldn't help but bark out a laugh when she'd ripped off her flip-flop and cast it into the crowd, striking a man at the back of his head. He liked a person who didn't care enough to give two fucks about most things. Some of life's most enjoyable moments never occurred because someone was too busy thinking about the right thing to do or the right way to do it. He, himself, was very much a loosey-goosey kind of fellow.

Still, being drunk on a boat was harder than he'd anticipated. Holding onto something seemed like the safest and smartest thing to do, and it was why he clung to the boat railing and watched. Then again, he definitely didn't want that to keep him from enjoying himself either. All he needed was a little push to compel him to take that leap:

"Let's dance,"

With a half-suppressed laugh, he pushed himself away from the boat railing and inadvertently approached the blonde with a bit of a wobble. He might have underestimated his lack of balance here. The periphery of his vision started to blur slightly, making the human forms there appear almost as if they were all a mirage. If dancing on a boat without getting nauseous was a skill you acquired with experience, then he hoped that skill came fast, because soon enough he began.

It began with a few uneasy but purposefully placed steps as he gently bobbed his head. Then, when he started feeling a bit cocky, the young lad brought his arms into the rhythmic mix before issuing a sharp pivot and spin. Unfortunately, this resulted in him more or less crashing into Skyler, clinging to her to keep either of them from falling over.

"O-Oh crap!"

He expressed, that shock eventually dissolving into laughter after he realized she hadn't been injured. While he had begun the motion to break away from her again and resume their dance-off, however, Atlan eventually decided against it and tentatively kept his hand clinging to hers. "You don't mind if we dance this close, do you?" He asked smoothly, still wobbling a bit with each step but managing it all somehow.

"You're the only thing keeping me standing right now, Lara Croft." He admitted.

It was approaching late evening, although in the boats and in their vicinity the lights still glowed, proving just enough illumination to see by. Around the party, however, night was quickly descending on the landscape and it felt, at least in Skyler's mind, more dreamy and intimate. The music mixed with the fairy lights and the few cocktails she'd had only contributed to this experience. As such, she was quick to lose herself to the beat of the music, her blond curls coming loose as she lost her elastic somewhere in her dancing.

She grinned up at Atlan when he pushed himself away from the railing and closer to her, moving tentatively at first, but gaining some amount of confidence as time went on. She made sure to dance fairly close to him so that she wouldn't lose him in the crowd, but that ended up almost being her downfall -- quite literally.

"Woah! Are you okay?" Skyler felt the young man crash into her and instinctively held on for dear life, her legs finding purchase on the boat's deck and returning her balance to her -- and Atlan's too, thankfully. "I think finding your sea legs will be harder than I thought," she said, grinning up at him with bright eyes, apparently not even bothered that they'd almost crashed onto the ground. The glint in her eyes turned mischievous at his words. "I'm beginning to think that you're crashing into me on purpose, fancy guy."

Still, she held onto his hand and shuffled closer, feeling the beat of the music in her bones. There wasn't a huge height different between them, but the young man was still ever so slightly taller than her. His next words almost made her laugh, but she ended up just snorting in amusement. "Am I? You better hold on tightly, then." 

She could feel a blush on her cheeks, but that could've been a number of things, from the warmth of nearby dancing people to the alcohol to -- well, other things. 

Her thoughts were suddenly interrupted by a loud whistling sound, and Skyler looked up just in time to see the explosion of a firework almost directly above them. That first one was quickly followed by a couple of others and Skyler tugged on Atlan's hand, turning to look at him. "Feel like going on an adventure, Atlan?"

Despite the nausea, and despite his two left feet, Atlan couldn't help but smirk at her comment. And, needless to say, he hardly hesitated in accepting her offer. Especially when he took note of the blush expanding on her cheeks like a flame. As they gently swayed with the music, the young lad placed a gentle hand at her waist before drawing her in closer. The other, in the meantime, tethered itself to one of her hands. He was putting his moves on her, of course, but he also actually needed help, after all. Just as the pair really began to groove, however, a sharp whistle interrupted the moment.[break][break]

Atlan looked up just in time to see the firework pop, standing in awe as others began to follow it. Then, before he knew it, Skyler was tugging him along elsewhere. "Woah! I mean, I won't say no! But where to?" He inquired with an excited gleam in his eyes.[break][break]

Meanwhile, Goodcop the Morpeko scampered across the thick lengths of rope that connected the ships to the dock. The fireworks had spooked him a great deal, but he'd managed to escape from his last plunder with a large chocolate bar in his mouth. Now if only he could find Atlan...[break][break]

The place on her waist where Atlan had rested his hand while they danced was still burning pleasantly and Skyler did her best to smother the slightly breathless sensation, even as her fingers intertwined with his own - and that did absolutely nothing to help her already flushed cheeks. She'd definitely had a few too many drinks if she was imagining the annoying tingling running up her arm.

She looked over her shoulder at the young man, blond curls flying everywhere, and her lips slowly stretched into a mischievous grin. The fireworks were starting to bloom all over the beach and over other nearby boats, illuminating everything around them in a multitude of colors. "You'll see, fancy guy," she said, exiting the boat and moving them through the docks, maneuvering past drunk partygoers and wooden crates. Skyler did her best to walk mostly in a straight line, but she wasn't quite sure she'd managed it. She stumbled a couple of time, laughing every time she did it. "I think my sea legs are no good on land." 

At least she hadn't brought Atlan down with her - that had to count for something, right?

The darkness wasn't helping matters either, and for a moment Skyler felt like a thief in the night, except that she wasn't stealing anything. Well - she thought, glancing back at Atlan - maybe she was stealing someone. With their express permission, of course.

They finally stopped behind a wooden building. While most buildings in the humble town of Pacifidlog were only one storey, this one was slightly taller. "C'mon," Skyler whispered to Atlan, finally removing her hand from his in order to climb up a set of wooden stairs built into the side of the building. 

She was met at the top with the straw-like roof common in Pacifidlog and pushed herself up, turning around in case Atlan needed some help climbing up. Her eyes were bright with excitement, especially when she noticed the absolutely breathtaking view from this vantage point. The fireworks took up a big portion of the night sky, and they could see them all from here.

"Much better," Skyler smiled, looking extremely pleased with herself.

Walking, even on solid land, seemed to be difficult to do overall at the present moment. It was miracle they hadn't accidentally stumbled on each other's legs by now. Realizing Skyler was having similar troubles, the pair laughed together as they made their way to their viewing spot. He was in a strange place. Under somewhat strange circumstances. But somehow the girl holding his hand made it all feel... comfortable. And she, herself, suddenly felt familiar.[break][break]

Entwined hands would part, however, when they reached a wooden staircase leading up to the second floor of one of the buildings. Atlan nodded and took a deep breath in an attempt to brace himself for the climb. He was still a bit tipsy, but not quite enough to dissuade him from climbing upward. "One... after another..." He repeated to himself in a mutter.[break][break]

And, eventually, he would reach the top to find Skyler's hand. Taking it and pulling himself upward, Atlan's eyes almost immediately marveled at the sight of the exploding colors in the dark night sky. He stumbled into a standing position, gently grabbing her arm for balance, but eventually finding it as a wide grin spread across his firework-illuminated face. "This... this is something else." He remarked.[break][break]

He hadn't even taken the time to realize how high up they were yet, or even assess the straw roof they stood on. He was far too entranced by the light show. Then, moments afterward, by the charming blonde beside him. "You're something else, too, y'know that?" He smiled, eyes connected deeply with her own for a moment... then leaning in slow with a slight head tilt before—[break][break]

"Woa— WOAH SHIT!"
[break]
He slipped off the straw and hit the roof sideways, his body sliding down towards the edge before he managed to slow his descent with both arms and cling to it. "Oh shit, oh shit, oh shiiiit!" He hastily cursed, legs dangling in the air.[break]

The booming of the bass traveled through the night breeze and made its way to them, punctuated by the popping of the fireworks. Cheers and laughter mixed in with the hypnotic rhythm, yet their individual meaning got lost at this distance. Skyler couldn't help but feel as if the vantage point made her some sort of revelry queen, overlooking the chaotic abandon of the party-goers below.

Her hand went to Atlan's arm as he stabilized himself atop the roof, her silvery eyes surreptitiously watching the change in his expression as he took in the view. A corner of her lips curled into a roguish, self-satisfied grin at the awe on his face.
"Totally worth it, huh?"

Then Atlan was talking and the blonde's eyes widened at his words, the warmth in her cheeks coming back with a vengeance. Yet, when she shifted to face the young man there wasn't an ounce of shyness in her posture. Despite the pounding heart and the pleasant flutter in her belly, there was a hint of challenge in the curl of her lips, in the way she tilted her head back and focused her entire attention on him. "I didn't know Lara Crofts were your type, fancy guy."

She boldly took a step in his direction, shortening the distance between the two of them to nothing. The warmth of his skin close to hers made her shiver and she licked her lips, eyes drawn to his own. When he started leaning in, Skyler copied the motion, breath held in her throat until - until she could feel the whisper of his breathing on her lips.

All of a sudden, Atlan disappeared with a loud curse.

"Atlan! Fuck." The expletive was said with gusto as the blonde crouched down and started sliding her way the edge of the roof, cursing when she lost her grip a couple of times. "Hang on!" The alcohol wasn't helping either, making her misjudge distances and nearly fall. 

Eventually, she managed to reached Atlan. "Shit, wait." The blonde adjusted her position and grabbed onto him, using her legs as leverage to try and pull him in her direction and away from the edge.

Unfortunately, in her alcoholic daze and despite her own strength, she didn't account for his weight. Skyler managed to gain a couple of inches before the balance suddenly started shifting the other way. Countless things went through her head at that moment, none of which even close to nice. 

Then they were falling into the deep waters beneath them.

The sudden plunge into the cold waters below felt like it'd taken an eternity. In those breathtaking and terrifying moments, Atlan had somehow managed to wrap his arms around Skyler's waist and pull her in, clinging to her moments before their bodies entered the ocean below. Despite his alcohol-addled state, the act had come almost instinctually.[break][break]

Splash!
[break][break]

Suddenly, they left their world behind. The sounds of the plane above became muted. His vision became abruptly obscured in darkness, but gradually returned as his eyes grew accustomed to their aquatic surroundings. He looked up to see the shimmering lights of the fireworks in the night sky. In the water's rippling blur, he thought he could make out Goodcop's form at the edge of the rooftop.[break][break]

Oh, right. They'd slipped and fallen. How could he have forgotten so easily after the fact?[break][break]

As if shaken out of a stupor, Atlan blinked his eyes and looked back down in a desperate rush to assess Skyler's well-being. Bubbles of air escape his nostrils and the corner of his mouth at a dangerously unsteady pace. He wasn't sure whether he should keep his arms around her or let go. But, as their eyes met, at least he found himself relieved. She appeared to be okay.[break][break]

As for him, it was very clear that within a minute or so he would very much not be okay.[break]

The fall took an eternity and no time at all. Skyler didn't let go of Atlan and he, in turn, wrapped his arms around her waist and pulled her close. There was no time to react before they sunk into the ocean waters, leaving behind the surface world.

In her somewhat addled state, it took Skyler some seconds to react to the situation. The feeling of the ocean around her was a familiar one and it calmed her pounding heart, strangely. She kicked her feet so as to keep them from sinking into the depths, and raised her head to watch Atlan - why wasn't he reacting?

Her eyes found Atlan's and the relief in them was mirrored in her own. Bubbles were escaping his mouth and nose at an alarming rate, however, which made her eyes widen ever so slightly. They weren't far from the surface, exactly, but Skyler knew that that didn't make the situation any less dangerous.

Her hands rose to cup Atlan's face, thumbs caressing his cheekbones subconsciously. Silver eyes peered up at him for a brief instant, a flash of some unknown emotion passing through them.


Then she leaned forward and kissed him. 

The air in her lungs dwindled to nothing as she gave Atlan all that she had. Her lips brushed past his his playfully, warm and soft, one last time before Skyler leaned away. She kicked her legs then, still holding onto Atlan.

When they broke the surface, Skyler gulped down oxygen like she was starved. Her crown of seashells was askew atop her head and her curls stuck to her face like tentacles of some oceanic creature. 


"Atlan! Are you okay?"

There was a small sand bank nearby, and she motioned to it in case he wanted to get out of the water.
