    Tuesday smiled to herself as she slowly made her way to the beach. Of course he had suggested they meet there- a watery location for the water aligned dragon.

    She didnt normally go swimming since having her head underwater was mildly terrifying, but hanging out in a swimsuit on the beach wasnt something she was opposed to. She wasnt entirely sure what he had planned though so she'd worn her bikini underneath a loose black skirt and mostly sheer black top that left a portion of her midriff bare. Carrying a pair of sandals now that she was walking through the sand barefoot.

    Cami loped along beside her, kicking up sand as she stretched her legs and circled Tuesday.

    "Alright Cami, let's see what we can get into. I'm curious what he has planned...," she laughed as her companion replied to her emotions by butting her leg with her head and growling playfully.

    Marric barely even had an outline of a plan, aside from "get Tuesday to meet at the beach". Marric was a dragon who was more known for thinking on the fly,a and improvising than coming up with elaborate plans. There was so much to consider. Things falling through, plans for when those plans don't work. Oh well, everything would be fine.

    He was wearing a Hawaiian shirt and a pair of swim trunks. He also had his guitar case in tow, of course. He was almost never seen without it. Tuesday was easy enough to spot with her wolf.

    "Yo!" he called out with a grin and a wave. "Looks like you came for the show."

    Just as Tuesday was easy to spot with a wold loping around beside her, Marric was easy to see with that brightly colored shirt. Tuesday wasn't so sure Hawaiian shirts were actually in fashion but screw it, what did she care about fashion?

    She smiled back and moved to pop an earbud out of one of her ears. Using the opportunity to also tuck a little of her hair back around that ear. "Hey, rockstar! Of course I came. I love a good show," she called out as she walked towards him. Cami seemed to calm down a little and trot along behind her as she approached.

    "Hope you don't mind I brought my wing-girl. It's not good to have a poor defenseless girl meeting up with a stranger all alone." She was being facetious. The wink, along with Cami clearly being calm and not on high alert , mad eit clear she wasn't worried in the least. "But maybe you won't be a stranger much longer," she added with a smirk.

    "I thought we hit it off pretty good at the center the other night, I'd put us at a solid 50 percent strangers. But your wing girl is quite welcome," Marric grinned at Cami. He could tell Cami wasn't just some pet, and honestly the more the merrier. Now where would he start with this show?

    "I guess it's obvious why the beach. Home field advantage, manipulating water is like playing music, which is like breathing," well, he knew what he was going to do now. He just wish he'd bought some food for this. the curse of being a poor planner caught up with him. "So, you eat anything yet? Also, how are you with water, specifically being on it?"

    Cami looked up at Marric and just yawned.

    "And I thought it was just a clever ploy to get me into a swimsuit," she teased as she cocked her head to the side slightly. And stepped a little closer.

    She then shook her head. "No I haven't eaten yet. Didnt want to get a cramp and drown if we do go for a dip. But I'm guessing you could keep that from happening." The wink came without even a thought. Surely drowning was the least of her concerns when out and about with a water dragon.

    "I dont think I have anything against being on the water. What did you have in mind?"

    "Wow you can't just call me out like that," he responded to her swimsuit joke with a grin.

    "I keep forgetting that's a thing that can happen. Sometimes I eat when I'm swimming, don't think I've ever had a cramp from eating and swimming, his voice trailed off as he thought about it, before snapping back to the task at hand.

    "You'd have a better chance of getting hit by a meteor made of solid gold than drowning with me floating around. I was thinking we grab some food and I can show you one of my favorite spots to hang out at. It's definitely easier to get there by water. Or... water dragon."

    "See it's only fair. Maybe I only agreed to come to the beach because I wanted to be seen in a swimsuit," she laughed. Truth was he could have absolutely called her out for it if he wanted.

    "Guess I'll just cling tight to my own personal flotation dragon. Are you shifting or should I just climb aboard now?" Rather than actually climb on his back though she offered him her one good hand.

    Cami looked up at Tuesday and then trotted off, evidently receiving some kind of unspoken signal from Tuesday.

    "Wow played right into your hand. I knew I liked you," Marric looked out at the water. Then back to Tuesday's extended hand. In all honesty, nearly any option would work for this. Cami seemed to head out around this time as well. He figured she'd be fine on her own or mysteriously show back up.

    "Personal flotation dragon? I guess that depends on how you approach the swimming thing. Either way, I've got a few ways to do this," he took her hand and led her towards the water. He was already shift, scales were cropping up on his arms and legs. He was humming as he led Tuesday not into, but onto the water's surface.

    "Bet you weren't expecting this were you?"

    Tuesday grinned wide and let him lead her out onto the water. "I'm afraid I seem to be down a flipper so I do appreciate the unique approach you have to water travel. I admit I didn't expect this particular thing but then I try not to get too bogged down in expectations. Can't enjoy the little things if you're always worrying about planning and preparing."

    She could almost feel the tingle of magic at work. It was always amplified around her, even now Marric was probably finding the effects to be more responsive or stronger than normal. She might not technically have an actual sense to detect magic really but she knew enough to see when it was at work. Her grip tightened a little as they stepped out onto the surface of the water. Instinct telling her it was unnatural and dangerous, though the resulting adrenaline and increase in her heart rate wasn't necessarily bad. Fun was fun, even unusual or dangerous fun. And admittedly there was no way Marric was going to let her get hurt anyway.

    If she minded his growing scales she didn't show it. In fact she slunk ever closer to the dragon as they walked. Her tattoos just barely visible through the sheer top she was wearing. Or at least what parts weren't covered by her bikini. "Tell me, do you always sweep the pretty ladies out to sea with you?" She used the stump of her right wrist to adjust her hair a little as it blew a bit in the breeze over the water. "Keep up the humming though- it's very beautiful."

    Marric was in fact noticing the ease that he could control the water around them. Manipulating water was always second nature for him, but this was even more effortless than what he was used to. He recalled Tuesday mentioning one of her auras had this effect. Regardless, he welcomed the boost. "If I'm not sweeping them out to sea, I'm taking them up to the surface. Pros of being amphibious, I can show off to either end of the spectrum."

    They were both moving closer to each other. He was however notably keeping a hand free. His fingers on that hand moving almost like he was playing some kind of instrument. "Well, that's the not so secret, secret. Music and sound amplifies my ability to control water. It's practical and entertaining."

    He kept up his humming, after a bit their destination would become clear. This was definitely a more cut off section of beach, cut off by rocks it was definitely more accessible by the water. Definitely a quieter spot that not too many people would go out of their way to try and reach.
