At least Pavel is surprisingly calm in the presence of an overly-excited plesiosaur.
The God's Tongue is fun to play with. But why is Cheth speaking it? Was he speaking it all along?! Dang.
Suddenly, the plesiosaur gets extremely excited, putting a fin on Pavel's paddle board, and rocking it forward. Pavel is startled as the red waves splash around him. The plesiosaur continues speaking in the same language - and says A LOT OF WORDS - but Pavel continues to be terrified.
Pavel: STOP, STOP! I CAN'T UNDERSTAND YOU!
The plesiosaur stops, startled. Then his face drops into a grumpy, annoyed frown.
Pavel looks up, shaking, clutching his paddle.
Pavel: You're... a Redtider. I've... never met a Redtider before. I didn't know they spoke the Gods' Tongue. Are... are you here to collect someone? Or... did you come here with them?
The plesiosaur asks something in the same language, looking worried.
Pavel: The Fata Morgana just attacked us. They... they took her.
The plesiosaur looks off to the side, scanning the area. But it sees something, startles, and its eyes glow red.
