Mimzu had no idea no clue if Umiko said about the rings were true not was she too much interested in what the history of these rings might have been. They seemed shiny and cool and that is all that mattered to her.

"Oh okay." she merely replied as she puts one of the rings on her finger but found them far too small for the ring to fit. After looking the golden ring over, she gets the grand idea of slipping the ring on one of the spines on her head which proved to be a better fit for the ring. Giggleing with joy, she puts on another one and another spine, then was about to put on a third when she remembered Umiko was still here and that she should probably share since they were the one whom found it.

"Oh! My name is Mimzu! Nice to meet you too! Did you want the rest of of the... Your-Rope-Peon rings Um-iko?" asked the merfold as she had trouble trying to say 'European'. Quickly she then added "Oh and this is my friend Sebastian! Say hi Sebastian!"

The crab raises one its massive claws with a half-hearted wave before it falls back to sand with heavy thud.

"Ah, Mimzu and Sebastian... I think you better keep the rings, brings you such an excitement after all.", Umiko gave a cheerful laugh in response. Were it him, he would have pawned the rings off to be able to afford better meals for himself and his apprentice for a while. "So you are a resident of the deep sea, I can tell with a single glance... What is life like in the depths?"

"Oh okay!" happily cheeped Mimzu without complaint. She would decorate her spines with the remaining rings and toss the box aside for the beach to reclaim.

"The deep? Well... its is not as bright as up where. It is hard to see anything up here. Also its umm..." Mimzu taps her chin, pondering for a moment before she then loudly declared "BIG! Big like I could go in any direction forever! But up here it just feels... I dunno... sort of smaller?"

"I've been to the depths once... Yeah, too dark for me, and I could sense I was being watched. Of course that was a century or two ago, and it was around Japan. Saying the ocean is big is quite an understatement, I feel. And sometimes I feel like it is calling me, telling me something I have yet to understand...", Umiko turned his eyes back to the sea.

Flick hardly had time to greet Om properly as she was suddenly swarmed with friendly little goblins, some seeming a bit more mischevious than others. She quickly greeted everyone in turn, introducing herself more times than she'd had to at one time possibly ever, before finally turning back and focusing on Om. She giggled a bit, looking them over and smiling.

"Your people are friendly," she said, "I like them."

At his question, she shook her head, wild-wavy hair swishing around her pointed ears. "Nope! Not yet, but better late than never, right? Let's get that YEAST!" A pause, and a tilt of her head. "Or... was it dough? Bread? What's the expression for money?"

@Boop Sorry for the wait bubbi!

"Oh yeah! There is all sorts of things awatching in the deep! Some people think it really scary but I think it's really comforting knowing that there is always someone looking after you!" explained Mimzu, trying to rationalize the feeling best she could. As Umiko found themselves staring off to sea, Mimzu instructed Sebastian to rest and looked out to the horizon with Umiko.

"Calling you? Oh you hear them too? Do you know what they are saying? Sometimes I think I and sometimes... it too hard to tell."

"Scary? Maybe. But once you have lived through the things I did, fear is but a fuel for the strength underlying within...", and how many things Umiko lived through, things that turned him into a demon, and things that made him change his ways... "I'm not sure on what the vastness of the ocean is telling me, it is a knowledge I have yet to earn... Perhaps it is the secrets to its timeless story, perhaps something else entirely."

Om grinned at Flicker, still a bit embarrassed and glad she hadn't asked what the other goblins had said to them. They nodded at the friendly comment, "Y-yes. Gobs are, we are... hard t-to s-say in English, group or p-pack. A friend is friend for all."

Pausing in thought, Om seriously considered her next question, but that was something they didn't know either. Money was important to goblins only if it was shiny or they could trade it for something, they would never think of it as food. "S-sounds s-silly. May-be d-dough? It c-can make bread and y-you c-can have bread for money." They shrugged. "We just look for p-pretty things."

Om pointed to a spot closer to the ocean, a little bit farther than the rest of the goblins had gotten yet, but still close to the pack of them. "C-can look there! S-so much water. D-do you s-see b-big water b-before here? "

Mimzu stared listlessly out to the sea as they listened to Umiko. They only half listened to what Umiko was saying and didn't understand where he was going with conversation but nodded her head to act like she knew what was going on.

"Ummm maybe! I'm sure it will come to you if you go out and look for it." suggested Mimzu, whom was quickly distracted with the thought of discovering more shiny treasure for herself "Oh ssspeaking of looking, Imma gonna go find more treasures with Sebastian!"

With tap on the glass, the mighty crab lurched to life and started to march further down the beach. Before they left however, Mimzu spun around in her bowl to call out to Umiko.

"Oh did you want to come with? If not that is fine too! I hope you find what you are looking for umm... Um-iko!"

"Or perhaps I need to give myself some time from this endless pursuit.", perhaps Umiko really should not try to listen to the calls from the depth all the time, perhaps he needs to wait for the right time... "Oh? More treasure hunting? Alright, although I don't smell any treasure nearby. So it could either be really deep or really far.", he would follow by Mimzu's side, keeping his nose keen to any scent that would hint treasures nearby.
