DO NOT SEEK ABSOLUTION / evacuation

I HEARD, I HEARD ACROSS A MOONLIT SEA
THE OLD VOICE WARNING ME
BEWARE, BEWARE THE DAUGHTER OF THE SEA
BEWARE, BEWARE OF ME.
Ever since the eruption truly began, the captain has been keeping a close eye on the mountain. The lava streaming slowly down it was not a good environment to stay in and the fact that it threatened to come even slightly close to them is worrisome. She knew enough about the molten rock to know that if one even got remotely close, they'd likely end up pretty fuckin' burnt. Not only that, but the air was awful. Smoke blew in and out, growing as the flames drew closer. Once she saw it begin to reach the bottom of the mountain, she knew it was time to leave. She'd been making preparations on the boats, setting them all up to make sure they're okay to sail and trying to check in with her crewmates as they gathered their belongings and kept them in either the Deep Sea Dome or one of the few boats set aside solely for storage. All that was left now would be to make sure everyone got on. They would be leaving home for a few days.

Admittedly, she is afraid. She does not wish to leave the island and she does not know what the future will hold for it or them. She is confident that they will make it through it, but she does not know exactly how yet. The female would just need to make an even greater effort to pull her crew together and make sure each and every one of them is okay and safe. The wounded bengal makes her way through the island, scrunching her nose as she struggles around, calling out, "Everyone!" and "Listen up!" loudly in various places, to make sure she got everyone's attention. "It's time t' begin evacuating! Make sure all of your stuff's safe in either the dome or on a boat n' find your own sailboat t' stay on. We'll set out all together, so don' fuckin' leave before I do."

Delta knows the danger. She holds memories, running through the jungle with the heat on her heels and stinking smoke smothering every scent. Staying away from the worst danger meant coming back to the mammal pack – not by choice, as she remembers chasing Owen’s smell on the wind with the rest of her sisters. Gone, gone, gone, all gone. Except for the small one. The feathered, ugly one that climbs on Delta like Delta is a tree with more curiosity than instinct.

But she does not see the little raptor among the mammal pack, and she blames their rank stench and smothering smoke for not smelling her sister out. Delta sees aberrant behavior, the mammals scuttling like ants – even carrying burdens like ants carry food. She smells some of the food they carry, hunks of smoked meats and fresh meats and plants and other things she holds no interest in.

Those clever eyes sharply move from boat to boat, not recognizing their function even as Delta understands the mammal pack finds them important. This is where the creatures move all their smelly stuff, chattering loudly with their annoying vocalizations. Delta distrusts the mammal pack – she also is not convinced of their intelligence, as they follow an injured subadult that almost all of the members could overpower individually. She dislikes the floating hunks of wood on principle, not understanding how they float and therefore not trusting the contraptions to stay afloat long-term.

Pulling her lips back, Delta moves through little crowd of creatures towards the dome. But she stops in her tracks, kicking up sand and huffing as she sees how it goes underground. The lava goes down, as she remembers, like water. No, Delta wants to stand somewhere high away from the lava – there are few places like that on the island, however.

She needs to move on. Cross the tiny long bridge, perhaps. She thinks of her options, for once ignoring the potential meals around her – many of which stink of fear – as she thinks of outsmarting lava. Clearly, the mammals are no help by relying on floating wood and underground places.
