[PRP] When the Moon Hits Your Eye... (Bay Sleep x Worlds Within Worlds)

Post by lilacfishie »


Bay Sleep's tail flicked back and forth, making a little divot in the sand by his back hooves. He was excited! The full moon was finally peeking over the water at the Cres. His chest rose and fell to match the waves receding into the murky depths. They would have a few hours for their little adventure before the moon started to pull the water back up the beach and envelop it. Even if they did lose track of time, they could swim back. Probably. Bay Sleep had never tried.

His eyes darted across the long beach and squinted as he tried to make out the shapes in the trees. The night always weirded him out a little. Weird things lurked around at night! He didn't understand why they didn't just come out during the day time. The sun felt nice! The water was warmer! Weirdos.

Sometimes, though, he guessed night adventures were worth it. Especially when a pretty doe would accompany him.

[PRP] When the Moon Hits Your Eye... (Bay Sleep x Worlds Within Worlds)

Post by Beejoux »


It had been a long wait for a clear full-moon night with agreeable weather, but Worlds Within Worlds thought the wait would be well worth it if the island was even a fraction as interesting as Bay has made it sound.

She emerged from the sparse trees and thick beach grass to make her way down to the coast, a bright spot of night dimmed color against a darker back drop, ethereal and elegant. For this adventure she'd choose to leave her shuppy and other pets back at her den. She loved them all dearly, but they could be a distraction, and the doe don't want to be distracted for this.

Bay Sleep was waiting for her near the water line for high tide, and she smiled up at him ashe she neared. Touching her nose to the bottom of his chin in a small show of gratitude and affection. "I hope I didn't leave you waiting for long."

A smile spread across Bay Sleep's face when Worlds Within Worlds emerged from the trees. Her bright features and graceful walk kept his attention fully, the strange creatures of the night pushed to the back of his mind now. He hummed happily when she nuzzled him, and tilted his head down in response. The smell of brine filled his nose as he nuzzled against the curve of her jaw before leaning back to look at her again. The very edge of the lanky buck's tail twitched happily, almost like an owlcat's, as he regarded the doe.

Before he got lost in thought completely, Bay Sleep moved one of his hooves aside and dipped his head low. Hidden beneath his hoof was a shiny abalone shell. Carefully, Bay Sleep picked it up and offered it to the doe. "All of its colors reminded me of you," he said, words a little muffled by the shell in his mouth.

He moved a hoof and the doe couldn't help but glance down towards his feet, attention catching at once on the shell before he was picking it up gingerly with his teeth and offering it to her, words endearingly muffled around the edges of it. "Oh," she said softly, scaled brows arching at the play of colors swirling along the inner curve, even in the dim night. "That's very lovely. Are you sure it's for me? You don't want to keep it?" It was a treasure, to be sure.

Bay Sleep gave his head a gentle shake before leaning a little closer to Worlds Within Worlds. "Of course it's for you!" he chimed. He dipped his head low and placed the shell at her feet before nuzzling her gently. "We can probably store it somewhere if you don't want to take it with," he added, realizing that carrying it might not be the best idea for their plans. The buck looked up at the moon, glad that it wasn't too far along its trip across the sky. They had plenty of time to spend together. His eyes travelled back down to her and he tilted his head along the beach, beckoning the doe along their path.

The insistance and the following nuzzle got a soft little him from the doe, a subtly little smile, and as he nodded to beckon her along she dipped her head to catch up the corner of the shell carefully in her maw.

Stashing it somewhere long their path seemed the worst course, so she kept her eyes peeled, scanning the beach, until she saw a very large bit of driftwood. Taill swaying, she headed over to tuck the shell I to the tangled nest of roots at it's base. Not easily noticed, and not likely to fall free. "There, safe and sound."

Bay Sleep watched as World Within Worlds stashed her present in the dried and gnarled roots of a small, uprooted tree turned driftwood. A grin returned to his face once more, impressed at her hiding spot. He would have never thought of that! When she returned to his side, he nodded in agreement with her observation that it was safe. With the beach in front of them and the bright, full moon continuing to make its slow ascent in the sky, he continued with her forward.

As they walked, Bay Sleep draped the end of his tail over the curl of Worlds'. The closeness felt nice, and he hummed in contentment. It was relaxing to hear the sounds of their hooves dipping into the sand and the surf hissing at their ankles. The latter sound reminded him of the first time he met the doe. While they continued on, he tilted his head towards her. "So, has the ocean told you anything neat lately?" he asked.

Thay little drape of tail got a subtle twitch of a smile from Worlds. She found the buck endearing. Open, friendly, and very curious. "It tells me many neat things most days," she answered, tone carrying an edge of warmth. For the ocean, the interest, or the buck himself, it was hard to say, but there all the same.

"It sings of the turning seasons, there are good things on the horizon, new life." The doe nodded sagely, careful steps quiet in the surf and the sand as she walked. The brighter tips of her tail trailing through the water.

Bay Sleep smiled warmly as he listened to Worlds Within Worlds. Her voice on his ears felt like the afternoon sun on his fur. His ears pricked up when she continued. "New things? How exciting!" he chimed. He wondered what new life they could expect! Maybe there was going to be a new creature on Moonpool Island...He'd heard about some weird fish variants hanging around The Cres. That would make quite the adventure!

They continued their casual stride down the beach. It seemed like the moon was following them to their final destination. Soon enough, they stood at the edge of the water, facing Moonpool Island. The ocean lapped at their hooves. Bay Sleep looked between Worlds Within Worlds and the opposing shore. "Just a quick swim, and we should be across," he hummed, smiling at her.
