Ryū Mikami 1 (the hunt)

Post by OpalescentDragon on Sat Jul 15, 2017 11:38 pm

Hueco Mundo, the quite wasteland where hollows roamed before the soul society closed its gates from the world. Now hollows run rampant through out the world with few shinigami to stop them. The few hollows that remain in the wastelands are far too weak to compete for food with the much stronger hollows. Ryu was one of these hollows. She had spent most of her time thus far as a hollow protecting her lover in the human world but he had just recently passed away with his soul not in sight. With her task completed in the human world, she retreated to the wastelands to find a new purpose but for now, she needed food. She was starving but not starving in the normal hollow sense of emptiness it was far worse. She ate next to nothing while she guarded her beloved it got to the point where most would be able to feel her spirit energy at all. However, this would give her an advantage on her first hunt for many Hollows let their guard down in Hueco Mundo nowadays with so few inhabiting the place. She had to build up her strength if she was going to keep on searching for her lost lovers' soul if it hasn't already been devoured by the many hungry hollows.

Ryu had been swimming through the sand dunes for hours now with few hollows along the way except for a few small lizard types that were easily devoured while she swam by. The only benefit she had to hunting here in the sands was she didn't have to think about what she ate. All the holllows here were weak and mindless, far too weak for larger more intelligent hollows to care for. After eating the hollow that turned out to be her small child she was pregnant with as a human she made a vow to not eat hollows that could further their evolution with the exception being self-defense or if the hollow was already far too injured to live any longer. After pausing her swim and raising to the surface of the sand to get in some cool air in her lungs she thought she felt a small vibration through the sand. Only her top fin, her eyes, and nostrils had risen into view. She could feel shifts and changes in the sand when fully submerged but only large ones. That meant that a larger hollow must be walking about in the area which got her heart racing and her mouth producing more saliva, The thought of a fresh big meal gave her renewed strength and she dove into the sands and swam a new toward the vibrations and the hunt.

As Ryu swam closer the vibrations became more intense letting her know that her prey was close by. She let her snout rise just above the sand to grab some air and to scent the area with her forked tongue. As her purple tongue flicked in and out of her mouth she picked up the heat signature of the hollow she was after. It was a rather large hollow and stronger than her in spirit energy but she had the element of surprise on her side. The hollow had stopped walking probably tired from hunting itself and sat down to rest. It had thick leathery skin to protect it from the heat and a huge mouth with long front canines. It somewhat looked like a hippo from the human world but its tail was long and lizard like and two small horns protruded from the top of its mask. The hippo's ears flicked this way and that probably trying to catch any noise from possible predators. Ryu had to swim slower through the sand as she got closer to the sitting beast until she was just under his neck then she dove deeper into the sand before twisting her tail so she faced skyward.

It took a long while of her to get a hang of swimming through sand. While the slippery substance she secreted from her skin under her scales make sand swimming comfortable the weight of the sand made it hard to sway her tail back and forth and gain momentum plus for a long while she had to stay near the surface because she would lose a sense of up and down if she dove too deeply. After a month of living in the wastelands, she managed to get the hang of swimming by building up more muscle in her tail to the point now where it became more natural and a bit less tiring than if she were to walk through the desert. She still couldn't swim for long periods of time without resting every now and then or without any food for a long time.

She coiled up her body a bit so she could get more momentum as she shot herself upward through the sand her nictitating membrane went over her eye making a clear protective eyelid over it like all sharks possessed. She finally reached the surface sand blasting in all directions as her head burst through the white terrain and her jaw opened to clasp onto the hippos flabby neck flesh. The hippo screamed in fright and anger as it tumbled backward and rolled smashing his head against the sand to free himself from the death grip. Ryu's tail painfully smashed against the sand but she remained on the hollows neck now trying to twist her head so the flesh she held world twist and rip with it. She didn't have teeth for ripping open flesh so she had to rely on her head movements and beak. She was also wildly smacking the hippo's mask with her front flippers hoping her single talon on each fin would catch on him and rip up his mask and flesh. The hippo bellowed and rolled trying to get her under him so she would be crushed but just before she was she managed to rip his neck flesh open which sent her sliding backward and leaving the hippos neck gushing blood turning the white sand red. She quickly swallowed the neck flesh with no time to savor it and leaped onto the hippos back racking him with her sharp talons. The hippo had lost too much blood already but rolled again this time much slower allowing the sharkatrice easy time to jump off of him. The hippo lay on its side heaving as blood pooled out of its neck and slowly the light faded from its eyes. Ryu had won her first big hunt with only an injury to her tail that would take only rest and food to heal. She dug into the hippo reaping her rewards.
