Inktober 2019 Drabble #6: “Rescue”

When Aisha, Nex, and Tressa reached the cave, they helped Nesia clear a path through the fallen rocks.

“I’ll get Kalia!” said Nex and dove inside.

The light on his Specialist suit illuminated the cave floor. Ten minutes in, he found the mermaid curled up, nursing her head. He picked her up and carried her to Tressa and Nesia.

“Thank you,” said Kalia weakly.

“Why were you girls in there anyway?” said Aisha.

“Someone said they saw the Kraken nearby,” said Nesia, “but it wasn’t here.”

“Kraken?” said Nex wide-eyed.

Aisha put her arm around him. “Back to the palace?”
