Now with the thought that her home may be safer under the guard of the strong sea friends that she had made. New and grand possibilities had opened to the little shark. The ability to travel to locations far from her home. To the other side of the Digital World if she so wished it. The ocean was now open to her and she was going to swim it with the greatest pleasure.
Although, she knew very little of what was transpired out of this little bubble, she called home. Which could prove… slightly more troublesome for the excitable shark.
But, she swam, onward. Allowing for once, the currents to guide her away from the Sunken Elysium and beyond it. However the further she traveled by sea, it became very clear. From this perspective, all look rather, mundane, similar and uninspiring.
She paused for a second, pensive. Her fins crossed as she considered what to do next. The glimmering silver crossed with the coral pink trident held fast in her mouth. The silver chain falling and rising as the ocean current moved past her.
As she closed her eyes as to think harder, something pushed past the little shark. Levi span around, the long chains spinning with her.
“Hey! Hey! Hey! Get’s outta ma’ way, will ya!”
A harsh voice spoke from just ahead of her. A dark and slightly blurred orange splodge in the clear blue.
“Fortunes are here to be made’! Ya know, ya know?”
The orange shape became clearer as the curious but slightly irked shark moved forward. Long orange tentacles flapped around the brown body which seemed to be made of some kind of pottery. Smal;l barnacle-like creatures stuck to the outside. Cold yellow eyes peered out from the shadows, deep within.
Levi tilted her head in the water, unsure of what he was talking about.
“Does you’ze mean likes’ uh’ sunkun’ tweasure or somefin’ like that?”
“Hey! Hey! Haven’t you ever heard of a real treasure. The art of the gamble? Oh come on, what you been doing living under a rock. Follow me! Come On!”
The Octomon sped forward, the long tentacles flapping behind it. Levi following behind, confused and now rather curious. It came to a sharp stop and pointed with a tentacle up into to the waters surface.
“Right there! That’s the famous, the most amazing and most elegant place that one can win some money anywhere! The 5¥ Casino. Well, see ya kid! I’m gonna get rich everything I always wanted!. I’ll catch you when I’m the richest octopi on these waters!”
“A casino-w? What’s iz?”
It appeared that in his excitement, he had failed to hear this final question. Without another word, the Octomon shot up through the water, like a cannon ball. Out of the ocean and out of sight,
Partly unsure, but also partly resolute in her choice. She rose up following the Octomon, allowing her shark fin to stick from the water. Then, she put her head above water completely. The waft of salt from the sea air hitting Levi’s nose for probably the first time ever. Or at least that she could remember.
This was when Levi got her first sight of the first but also largest, tallest and quite imposing building she had ever seen. It alongside the coast, taller than anything around. She blinked several times, trying to take it all in. But found herself dazzled by the many bright lights.
“Levi looks in the Casino-w? Me finks?”
Tentatively, Levi followed the Octomon. Launching herself out of the water and splashing down, literally, onto a long stretched out red carpet that led into the tall building
