STILL EDITING! DON'T MIND THE TYPOS!
A sailing I will go!
Charles was a young kid who joined the navy when he turned 18 years. He was of small stature and not physically tough but he had the mental acuity to become a sonar tech in the submarine force. After his year of BESS training and Sonar Tech A-school he was inducted into special projects. He was sent to be on the USS Jimmy Carter and went out on a test run. A strange blip showed up on the sonar screen and sounded like biologics... It remained there for days before vanishing again.
The hulls been breached captian!
During the time frame a number of the crew had terrible night mares and some could swear that they heard something brushing against the ship... Eventually the sounds vanished and the boat moved on. Charles himself had terrible nightmares and saw a massive Krakken tearing into the hull and dragging the boat off... After a year later the nightmares remained with Charles. After a year of training and qualifying he finally earned his Dolphins. The moment he was having them pinned onto his chest the boat shook violently
Down he goes... into the deep blue sea...Wait...why is it Emerald Green?
Charles fell over and nearly took out the captain but he managed to stay afoot. He ran to his battlestations assignment which was fire hose detail. Suddently the sickeing sound of metal being torn by bone flooded the forward compartment...Charles dropped the hoses head and tried to lead his group to the aft end and throut it's double sealed air lock. 2 out of the 5 men didn't make it and many more were killed instantly by the insane pressure. They died quickly and in a blaze of heat. (Because pressure makes heat and 800 cubic pounds per foot of water ...is well alot...* The boat continued to sink one fourth of the crew as left now..and they were to deep for the escape room to work...it was useful down to a maximum of 400-600 feet... they were already past crush depth. After a long moment...he pressure seemed to disappear and the men and charles were confused...Suddenly the krakkens beak tore through the hull causing the men to pour out into the water...many were eaten right away and some simply drowned. But a couple managed to swim... and they swam for a long time. As Charles swam up he slowly noticed the the water was an emerald green and when he surfaced he noted that...yes it was ...Perfect and brilliant emerald green. So green infact that it stained his eyes to its color.
A long swim in Davy Jones locker
After a while the man floated there on his back and looked around for some sign of land...he slowly drifted. Days, weeks, months could have passed but he wasn't certain. Time had no meaning anymore...he had no meaning. He started to swim...and when no land was insight he began to dive and searche the ocean floor for anything hey could eat. Slowly his ability to hold his breathe became better...in fact he could stay under for half an hour at a time. During one such dive he found an old sunken fae ship and on it he found an ebon and gold fleeced trident...when he twisted the handle counter clockwise the clockwork mechanics inside it would case it to shrink...counter clockwise would cause it to extend and click into shape. After a while...he felt a communion with the water and he somehow was able to manipulate it....and when he found the one small island of inpenetrable skin it seemed to call to him as well. He learned of his ogrish strenght...and of punishment... After a long while of diving foraging, fighting off the other changelings in his area...and foraging some more he came across something odd....He pulled the item out of the water and looked at it for hours on end...until it clicked...It was his USS Jimmy Carter ball cap...it even had his name in it still. His mind finally aroused and he looked down into the reflection...noting the butish beast he had become and...how much stronger he was as well...He started to swim. He didn' know why but he felt a pull in the ocean...and he headed toward it. He swam for days without rest and finally he dove...he dove deeper then he's ever dove before... Then he saw it... A..circle of blue...Blue! His mind was awash with joy as he swam ever closer to it...not heeding the large krakken that was coming up behind him. The tentcales latched onto Neptunes foot...and he stabbed it with the trident...which very well might have saved his life. The monstrosity tossed the waterdweller through the hole and up the ogre went. He started to see light. And..normal fish.He was thrown so hard he literally erupted out of the water were he promptly took a deep breath of the real worlds air...the sea salt... he so missed the sea salt. He swam and swam in the blistering cold...but the pain was nothing like arcadia..nothing...Eventually he found land and fell asleep on the shores near the Bangor subase in washington. After raiding a trashcan and reading the paper...
Back again.... But I'm not home.
it was only 1 year from the day the Carter supposedly sank... The boat was still in the headlines for it's duties it was doing for it's country ... The whole thing was covered up and replaced by another special ops boat....and his name was in the paper too!. Freaked out and pissy He ran and hitch hiked around the country until he stopped in chicago where he eventually settled down. He took the freehld pledge and was employed at the manse.
