The waters of the Rewhister Ocean have tempted many a traveler, as from the shore they seem docile and inviting. Upon reaching around 100 km from shore though, the sea floor drops greatly and waters are often violent. Sailors fear the horrors that may lurk below. (+2 stat of choice)

Return to Rewhister Ocean

The von Otts

While many sensibly fear the horrors of the Rewhister Ocean and what lurks in the depths beyond the safety of the shore, some creatures out there were not born with an inherent fear of such waters. You see, many people forget that water is just that, water. It's neither good nor bad and if you're careful, it doesn't have to be dangerous at all.

As to be expected, said creatures were of the water themselves, or at least sufficiently adapted to it so that swimming somewhere your toes don't touch the bottom didn't seem nearly so horrifying as people liked to make it out to be. Said creatures were siblings, twins in fact, going by the unfortunate names of Oliver and Olivia because all parents are evil and not to be trusted when naming their spawn.

In order to combat the confusion that their names often raised for relatives and friends both, Oliver tended to go by Ollie with those he was close with. Olivia had taken a liking to the nickname Liv. Said nicknames differentiated them enough. The fact that they weren't identical twins helped immensely, too. That would have made their lives especially awful.

Anyway. Today saw the two of them at the ocean (surprise surprise). It wasn't their main haunt, but it was one of their regular places to go just the two of them when they needed a break from the rest of the world. Not a huge amount of people came out here, you see, because of the aforementioned terrifying depths.

Not that anyone had any evidence that there was anything dangerous out there at all. Everyone just liked to talk big like that. What nobody tells you about spots like this that are supposed to be terrifying, however, is that as long as you stay close enough to shore the ocean does not drop out from beneath you and you will not die from being eaten by a giant squid.

They also don't tell you that you probably wouldn't even notice when you were out that far if you were just swimming because the ocean gradually gets deeper anyway and you can't see the bottom far before you're at risk of swimming over the depths. Anyone who's been to the beach should know that. As well at the suddenly an unexpected lesson in how to tread water.

Ollie and Liv, obviously, already knew all of this and weren't going to let some stupid rumors about this spot take away from the fact that they could come here without being bothered or having to worry about people asking them who's older and who's younger and whether or not they can read each other's minds.

Ugh.

Liv was the first one in the water. In fact, she didn't even pause once they arrived, she just walked straight in. Ollie took more of his time, looking around to see if there was anyone they'd have to keep an eye on later. Spoiler: there wasn't. People didn't come here and he was being paranoid at best.

Eventually he joined his sister in the water, splashing around with her as if they were having a great 'ol time and this wasn't just them trying to escape from the real world for a few hours before it came back to bite them both in the ass.

"Ugh." Ollie said, out loud this time, as he floated into his back to stare up at the sky.

Liv splashed him because apparently that's how she was showing her curiosity today. "I hate my job." Ollie explained, offering no further explanation. I mean. Did he even have to?

It didn't even matter what job he had. There was probably a perfectly valid reason to hate it, which, judging by the way he was scrunching up his face, he was about to explain in great detail. Joy.
