Nightmare Comfort Octavinelle
Prompt: Y/N had a nightmare and asks comfort
Characters: Azul, Jade, Floyd
Fish Mafia my beloveds (✿◡‿◡)
Y/N is going to be gender neutral to the best of my abilities. They/Them Pronouns, and I’m going to try and avoid gendered descriptors <3
TW/CW: Not describing what was in the nightmare but if that ambiguity bothers you and makes your mind spiral please don’t read and have a wonderful night,
Heartslabyul | Savanaclaw | Octavinelle (Here) | Scarabia | Pomefiore | Ignihyde | Diasomnia |
Y/N jolted upright, holding their chest as it felt as if their heart would run away. They tried to calm their breathing and their thoughts, unable to shake the horrors their subconscious cruelly subjected them to. They took some deep breaths and manage to calm themself enough to look at the time. They squinted as the cheap phone Crowley gave them lights up and the numbers display on the screen. It was late.
They wondered if it may be too late to ask for comfort from someone. Of course they could just pet Grim but they didn't feel like dealing with the feline whining and complaining in that moment. So taking another deep breath both to sooth their shaky hands and for some courage, they opened their contacts to make a phone call.
Y/N stared at Azul's contact for a while. They weren't sure why he insisted on putting his number in their phone but it was safe to assume it was just easy access to make a deal with him. They sighed softly, not sure if they wanted to risk getting condescended to by the business man at a time like this. They let out a small sigh, pushing that thought to the side and called him. The phone barely had time to ring before his voice came through, as charismatic as ever.
"Y/N!" he started, "what reason do you have to be calling me so late? Answer quickly, I'm a very busy man, you know."
"Ah.. I was actually wondering if..." they trailed off, seemingly losing the ability to form a coherent sentence suddenly.
"Continue," the merman prompted them.
"Maybe you could stay on the phone with me for a while?" they hid their face as if he could see them through the phone. Saying it out loud to Azul was more embarrassing than they had anticipated.
"Hm.. I suppose it wouldn't hurt to have company," he paused for a moment, the loud sound of papers being shuffled coming through, "though it'll cost you" they could tell that he was smirking by the smug tone in his voice.
"... maybe I should have called someone else," they sighed shakily.
"No-" he said with a sudden sternness, "ahem.. I've just decided your company will be trade enough."
They laughed a little, "you don't want to be alone either, do you?"
"Don't be ridiculous, I quite enjoy my solitude," he huffed
"Okay, Takoyaki," they snort
"Did you just... you know what nevermind, I'll call you back on video."
Azul hung up, calling back fairly quickly. He already had the phone propped up as he worked. He looked much less put together than his usual professional appearance. His tie was undone, resting around his neck, as well as a few buttons on his shirt were left undone. He was missing the coat from his dorm uniform too, though it was too late to be all that worried about appearances. It's not like there would be customers this late.
Y/N smiled a little, snuggling into their covers after propping their phone up.
"Azul?" they spoke softly
"Y/N, I need to focus. How chatty do you plan on being?" he glances over at them.
"Not very.. Thank you."
"Staying here with me"
Azul's cheeks dusted pink as he looked back to his papers, looking composed otherwise, "Mm of course. How else would I guarantee your patronage?" he joked with a small smirk.
Y/N bit their lip anxiously, as they stared intently at Jade's number. The eel wasn't nearly as volatile as his brother but that was what was insidious about him. What if he used this against them later? What if he blackmails them? It was a fair assumption of course even if they considered the two of them friends but they really didn't want to be alone. They took a deep breath and called him before there was time for anymore doubt to flood their mind.
They bit their bottom nervously, fidgeting with anything and everything in the short amount of time it took for Jade to pick up the phone.
"Good Evening, Y/N," he spoke with a smooth and clearness that implied he hadn't yet gone to bed, "you're up late, is there something you need?"
"Yeah there is," they adjusted themself and took a breath, gathering their confidence.
all their confidence dissipated when they heard his signature mocking yet polite chuckle, "well, are you going to tell me or should I come see for myself?"
"You don't need to come see!" they yelped out at the mere suggestion of the eel coming to them, "..well there's nothing to see, I just had a really bad nightmare,"
"I see, and you wanted some form of comfort?" he asked, voice smooth and words calculated.
"And how exactly will I be compensated for this?" he asked slyly.
"My eternal gratitude?" they pleaded halfheartedly.
"I need a bit more than that, though you should hurry. We wouldn't want to lose more sleep, would we?"
"No.. how about this, I'll come foraging with you at some point," they suggested, though it wasn't necessarily one of their big interests they were willing. They enjoyed Jade's company anyway so why not?
"Yes, I do believe that will be a sufficient enough trade off,' he chuckled, feeling an immense amount of satisfaction from this exchange.
"So should I call back on video?"
"No, that won't be necessary."
another chuckle was heard before the click of Jade hanging up came through. "Maybe he's going to call back, and that's why he's being all cryptic," they thought up this lie to make themself feel better, getting more and more concerned as they waited, but there was no phone call. Instead there was a knock on the door, not the front door, but their bedroom door. They jumped in surprise. "Did he.. come here anyway..?" they questioned internally, getting up and opening the door. Sure enough, there the eel was, directly in front of them with a sly smirk on his face and hand elegantly drawn to his lips.
"Once again, good evening,"
"You really didn't have to come all the way out here.. you look like you haven't slept at all yet,"
"I haven't, we had a lot of work to do at the lounge,"
"Well then why are you here? What's Azul going to say?"
"I'm sure Azul will manage just fine without me, you forget he's the boss," he laughed and leaned down a bit closer to their face, scanning their features for any kind of reaction.
They pushed his face away instinctually, feeling as if he was treating them like some meek prey animal that is to be studied before hunted. He was thoroughly entertained by such a reaction of course.
"Now, I suppose I should ask how you'd like me to get you back to sleep," he smirked, taking off his coat and getting comfortable.
Y/N wondered if it would be a good idea to call Floyd. He was a huge wild card, call him when he's in a bad mood and there's no telling what might happen. That's a lie of course, its likely to just result in one of his signature squeezes or getting mauled by the eel. Of course there was a chance he'd be in good mood and they would receive some sort of comfort. They squinted at the phone but shrugged as they call him. The worst that could happen was he threatens them a little, they'd be fine. They smiled a little after telling themself this.
"Shrimpy~!" the eel picked up and whined happily, clearly having just woken up, "whatcha doing up so late?"
"Well, uh.. I had a nightmare," they explained sheepishly.
"Aw, poor Shrimpy," he teased, "how about I come give you a big squeeze," they could just tell from the tone of his voice he had the biggest grin on his face.
"Are you talking about a hug or.."
"A hug obviously," he giggled, the sound of shuffling and something dragging along the mic coming through loud enough that they moved their phone away from them.
"You don't have to come over!" they spoke, panic clear in their voice.
"But I wanna," he whined.
"Okay," they sighed, not wanting to accidentally trigger a mood swing.
"Alright I'll be over in a flash," he hung up.
Y/N sighed and pinched the bridge of their nose before getting up. They walked downstairs and waited patiently in their living room area. Ramshackle was run down sure but at least the sofa was still comfortable to sit on. They jumped as they heard the front door swing open.
"Shrimpy~!" Floyd mused loudly, closing the door and rapidly approaching.
As soon as the two locked eyes, a mischievous glint gleamed in Floyd's eyes. A huge grin was plaster firmly on his face before swiftly pouncing on the magicless human. They let out an loud yelp and squirmed but to no avail. Floyd was getting his hug Cackling while writing this part.
"Poor, poor Shrimpy. Lets get back to bed," Floyd yawned, carrying Y/N back to bed.
He held them in a similar way to how someone would hold their favorite stuffed animal. Y/N didn't mind too much, this was actually quite endearing and cute in his own little way. Floyd was careful not to crush them when he flopped onto the bed with them, though the same can't be said for poor grim who scrambled away quickly. The cuddles were immaculate
If i draw one i gotta draw the other 😮💨

Cleaner Shrimps and Eels have a symbiotic relationship: The shrimp cleans the Eels’ teeth and removes any parasites, bacteria, insects, etc from the eels. In return, the eels give the shrimp protection and a free meal. Since Floyd gave you the nickname Shrimpy, you thought of an interesting idea.
A/N: I have finally gained motivation to write again! Be expected to see more writing soon! :D
The two tweels rest inside their dorm room, doing their own thing: Jade was taking care of his succulents as Floyd played on his phone. Their heads turned to the door when they heard a knock. Jade opened the door to see your figure in front of him.
“Oya, Prefect? What brings you here?”
“Well, I read somewhere about this relationship between shrimps and eels. I then remembered that Floyd calls me Shrimpy and, well…”
You lift your both hands to both twins to reveal a toothpaste and two toothbrushes. The two of them gave each other a look and slowly grinned, showing their sharp teeth.
*.·:·.✧ ✦ ✧.·:·.*
You are gently brushing Floyd's pointed teeth while sitting on his lap in bed. You tried to avoid scrubbing them hard. Floyd is quite pleased and relaxed; to your surprise, he doesn't move as much as you had anticipated.
“Floyd, please stop squeezing me…”
“Sorry Shrimpy. You look cute and squeezable, kehehe~”
Next up, Jade bent down on your level as you began brushing his teeth. As a gentleman, he stood still and didn’t move a muscle.
“Tell me if I’m scrubbing too hard.”
“You are doing good, y/n. This is perfect.”
*.·:·.✧ ✦ ✧.·:·.*
“GAH! Floyd!” yelped Riddle, “W-What are you doing here?”
Sure this whole thing is quite unnecessary, but you thought it was an interesting experience. But if you think this is a one-time thing, you’re dead wrong. Once you started something with the Leech Twins, there’s no going back. Whenever one gets dirty or so, both would approach you.
One time, you sat with Riddle, Trey, and Cater during lunch hour since the Adeuce duo and Grim got in trouble for sleeping in Trein’s class. While having a conversation, Floyd popped out of nowhere, startling everyone at the table.
“Eh, I’m here for little shrimpy.”
You looked at the tall eel, “Oh, uh. What’s up?”
“Something got stuck in my teeth. Can you get it out?”
You let out a sigh and reached into your pocket, revealing a floss you have. You had a feeling something like this would happen and glad you trusted your gut. The three boys at the table were shocked as they watched you flossing Floyd’s teeth in front of them. Trey is mentally punching air: He wanted to be the one to get his teeth cleaned by you.
Another time you were walking back to Ramshackle dorm after Floyd dragged you to his Basketball club. You stumbled upon Jade, who came back hiking from his club. You noticed a speck of dirt on his cheek, possibility from gathering mushrooms. You walked towards Jade who noticed your appearance and took out your handkerchief. You softly wiped his cheek, “You have something on your face, Jade.”
Jade looked at you with wide eyes then smiled, “How careless of me. Thank you, prefect.”
Floyd would occasionally drag you to Monstro Lounge, keeping you there while he and Jade were on their working shifts. He kept you either at the bar where Jade works, in a table were customers supposed to be, or in the VIP room in case they both needed you. You were either doing your homework, studying, or helping the Monstro Lounge, which Azul didn’t mind and paid you with no acknowledgment of your reasoning. Azul didn’t understand the sudden relationship between you and the tweels, and why they both grew very comfortable with you.
“Because Little Shrimpy wants to take care of us,” Floyd replied, “Neh neh, isn’t that right, Shrimpy?”
You, Floyd, and Azul were in the VIP room during Floyd's break. You sat on Floyd’s lap, facing towards him on one of the couches as the octo-merman organize his contracts.
Azul looked at the two of you and raised a brow, “I still don’t understand why you’re spoiling on the twins lately, prefect. Care explaining?”
You only said nothing as you wiped Floyd’s face clean. Floyd let out a giggle as you squeezed both of his cheeks, smiling at his adorable face. Azul could only watch in envy, “I want to be taken care of too…”
“Get your own Shrimpy.”
*.·:·.✧ ✦ ✧.·:·.*
Similar to the shrimps and eels, the tweels also returned the favor. When it comes to protection, the two always kept their eyes on you whenever you were nearby.
Once, three Heartslabyul students tried to fight you and Grim when you accidentally bumped into them. Grim put out a fighting stance as you kept apologizing to not start a fight. Out of nowhere, the same three boys went pale and ran away, apologizing out loud to you and your furry companion. Grim stood there in confusion then laughed.
“Nyahaha! That’s right, fear the Great Grim, you cowards!”
You felt a presence or two behind you. Suspicious towards to boys’ reaction, you turned your back to see the reasoning.
“Ah. Floyd, Jade.”
The two tall eels stood in front of you with a grin. “Hello, prefect. We came by to see how you’re doing.”
Floyd then lifted you with a squeeze. “Shrimpy~ I’m bored. Let’s do something.” He dragged you somewhere, leaving Grim and Jade, who shook his head.
Remember when I said how Floyd would drag you to his basketball club? This would happen whenever he’s in a good mood. He wants you to watch him play as he shows off. One time, you grew bored and dozed off. Not aware of your surrounding, you heard your name called. Snapping back to reality, you saw a basketball coming straight toward your face. You closed your eyes, waiting for an impact, but felt nothing. You slowly opened them to see a hand in front of you: It was Floyd, who caught the ball on time. He looked at you with a smile, “Hehe. Are you alright, Shrimpy?” You only nodded and thanked him. After that, he turned towards his club members with a terrifying look. “Now which one of you threw this ball?”
It is nice to have the two twins by your side. As long as you take good care of them, they will take care of you as well.
The whole gym fell silent: Ace and the others gulp in fear as Jamil sweatdropped. The poor freshman who accidentally threw the ball could only stay muted and shaken on his spot in horror.
Fortunately for him, you persuaded Floyd that there was no need to search for them because there was a possibility that they didn’t mean it, which was true. After you convinced him by complimenting his reflex and allowing him to squeeze you, Floyd’s mood lifted and smiled widely.

straddling the waist of your beloved octomer boyfriend, you couldn’t help but stare at his face, admiring every bit of it. his gorgeous eyes, his hair tickling his face, his kissable lips with his little beauty mark, all of it were beautiful to you. as he gulped under your gaze, you could imagine his mind worriedly racing with thoughts, assuming untrue and foolish self-loathing things about himself again. “you’re my pretty boy, please don’t think so little of yourself, Azul,” you hummed, smiling gently at him as he lets out a cough, unsure if he had heard you correctly. “what?” he squeaked out, cheeks adorning a red shade as he tries to look you in the eyes but finds himself gazing at the floor. a part of him hoped his misheard you, but the other much more selfish part of him hoped what he heard was right, and was the genuine truth. “pretty boy,” you repeat again, a little louder this time while brushing his hair behind his ear as you press your forehead against his, fingers tracing his bottom lip as he parts it slightly, his cheeks burning even hotter than before as his eyes meet your’s again. too close, he thinks, even if the two of you were dating what gave you the right to fluster him and make him feel so special? “you’re so pretty i wonder how you don’t get it. i guess i’ll have to make you realize it myself.” before he could respond to your praise, he finds his fingers in your hair as the two of you close your eyes, exchanging many kisses.
༘˚₊➳❥ 𝐉𝐀𝐃𝐄 𝐋𝐄𝐄𝐂𝐇.
“you’re so pretty when you smile like that, especially when you show me your teeth,” you uttered out, fork digging into your pasta as you twirled it, “i also love the way your eyes light up when you talk about what you love,” you continued, blowing on it as your boyfriend paused mid sentence by your sudden comment, staring at you wide eyed and mouth agape. swallowing your bite, you look up to see for the very first time a genuine look of shock on Jade’s face, startled by your choice of words. “are you alright, Jade?” You asked as he regained his usual composure. “i am quite alright. it’s just you never seem to fail to amuse me no matter how much time passes,” he replied as you laugh a little, putting your cutlery down and wiping your lips with a napkin before getting up from your seat, choosing to move into his arms as you wrap your hands around his neck. “neither do you,” you hummed, giving him a kiss right underneath his eye as you rub your thumb across his cheek. “you’re such a pretty boy, my pretty boy. i’m so lucky to have you and to be able to listen to you talk about what you love.” with zero hesitation, one of his hands captured your free one, the other against the crevice of your back pulling you closer to him, lips meeting your’s in a slow and passionate kiss. truly, no one but you could make him feel like this, prefect.
༘˚₊➳❥ 𝐅𝐋𝐎𝐘𝐃 𝐋𝐄𝐄𝐂𝐇.
it only took a few seconds of entering monstro lounge for you to find yourself tackled into a huge hug by your boyfriend, him peppering kisses all over your face with little giggles, whining over how much he missed you since classes. “i’ve missed you too my pretty boy.” you cooed, squishing his cheeks between your fingers. the second what you said registered with him Floyd’s eyes lit up, nuzzling his face further into your palms as he squished you against him harder, eyes staring at you expectantly. “aww, does my pretty boy want more affection?” you ask teasingly, pressing a kiss against the tip of his nose and then onto his lips, deepening it before remembering just where you were. as soon as you pulled back your boyfriend’s eyes narrowed as though betrayed you’d suddenly stop as a pout formed on his lips. “i’ll give you all the kisses you want when your shift is done, alright?” you console him as he perks back up, grinning at you. “you better keep your word or i’ll squeeze you tight, shrimpy! remember, i’m your pretty boy.” he proudly said, dragging you to a table in his section where he could watch you sit and inevitably join you after ditching his shift.
@𝐑𝐄𝐍𝐗𝐇𝐎𝐋𝐈𝐂𝐒 : no plagiarizing, reposting, or claiming as your’s.
following channels [tag list] : @h0n3ysgh0st : didn’t really have much time to write recently last month, sorry! here’s a quick update post while im working on the bigger ones! i haven’t written in awhile so i needed a proper warm-up!
So I had a birthday recently, and the most awesome part had to be the cake. My husband had been joking for a while that he would put Jade or Octavinelle on it, due to, you know, my simpery, and I thought he was going to scribble a little eel with frosting or put the TWST logo or something
Instead that goddamn gem of a man got this COMPLETE MASTERPIECE with art by the ever amazing @mintmoth 😍😍
I felt so bad when I ate Jade’s face lol
The order fits into self aware au. How would Malleus, Jade and Leona react to an extremely caring reader?
I do not take any responsibility for you reading this no matter which age group you are from!
WARNINGS: Yandere themes, obsession, possessiveness, manipulation, violence, murder, injuries, family problems, unhealthy relationship
Leona Kingscholar/Jade Leech/Malleus Draconia-Player is extremely caring
Let's be honest, Leona is a sucker for attention even if he doesn't show it
I mean, house cat over there was deprived of affection throughout his entire childhood so what did you expect? A healthy headspace? Haha no
So when he was sitting there, daring at the student who just stepped on his tail when he felt it for the first time
And at first it was not a great sensation
He always felt someone looking at him, watching him, him never being able to escape...
But after he also watched the black haired annoyance he soon understood what was going on... or at least he thought he did
Malleus and his little fanclu-I mean his “friends” were known for having a rather “interesting” interest in the Overseer and since that started they were saying that they were watching them
Ok so he has his own little pair of eyes staring at him no. Great great. No way he likes tho-WHY IS HE PURRING??!
Now that things have been going like that for a longer while he does notice though that you treat him different than others
Whilst you would be like “may, I can wait with your spell material” you are with him “OUT OF THE WAY! I NEED TO TAKE CARE OF MY CAT!!!”
Whilst everyone is just trying to get a tiny bit of that attention and care he is just like “I have no idea what I did but I like it”
But I think I mentioned him being starved as a kid of attention and care from his family and his general surroundings, right?
Well it's going to show right here, right now
Whilst he basis in what you give him like sunbathing he is more or less just terrorizing others
If someone dares to try to get close to him so that they might get some of his cake he will create a new sand pit
Even though his family doesn't know Leona is aware that they would be at least thankful that his magic doesn't leave any trace to follow at the scene of the crime
Just keep that attention up! Otherwise he might just snap and make short process with everyone
Confusion. Just confusion (at first at least)
Here he is, hat stand extravagance, witnessing how an all-knowing entity starting down on them is especially caring towards him
I mean, it all started on the day that exchange student ran after their friends after they got entangled in a contract with Azul
At first he thought you hated him
You were known as someone who was for fair contracts
And danger noodle over here knows that Azul plays dirty
Like “dumping mineral oil into the sea” kind of dirty
Why else were you always sending him out there to “squeeze the fishies” (-Floyd Leech, the not-so-extravagant hat stand)?
Why else were you always staring at him when he was talking to Yuu?
You gushing about him and how much you liked and wanted to take care of him didn't even cross his mind
Well, until the team was defeated for the first time
Oh boy, you were angry
But you were even more concerned about him
S-so you were just caring for him? Ha...Haha... HAHAHA- (Don't forget to breathe, Jade)
Is he overjoyed about that? Yes
Does he play dirty to keep that care to himself? Absolutely
The next time you see an NPC they might be a bit silent and avoid you
Jade is good at collecting dirt on people, you know?
Aww how cute! We like the lighter!
Jokes aside, Malleus knew immediately that you were there even though he wasn't present in the prologue ceremony
So when Lilia came home that night he just bursted through the front door, doorknob in hand, yelling words about the Overseer
The general had to calm down so that the "young" fae could finally understand what the was saying
Ah, so you were here... WAIT WHAT??!
But then... *sad dragon fae noises*
Why? Well he thought he was either so boring that you left him alone or that you avoided him because you disliked him
I mean, imagine, the one being you always looked up to, thinking they understood you to some degree, is now staying far away from you
But then why were you always heading into battle with him? And why were you so angry the first time he had an elemental disadvantage?
When you finally had enough material you shoved that straight down his throat, saying something about “can't let him get hurt” and “not this pretty nifty little thing!”
So... you liked him? Why were you avoiding him then? ... You know what? He won't ask
That doesn't mean it's good for his ego though
Whenever he sees the house cat in the garden he just has that expression that literally screams smugness
But if someone dares to say that you don't care for him?
Roasted chicken my friend. Roasted chicken
His letters to his granny are now always filled with “how kind and caring the Overseer is” and “if there is a spell to get you here”
... You know what is waiting for you, right?

Notes: it's been years since I decided to write something but Jade has my heart so here.
Jade Leech was used to being feared.
He had never minded the fact though. No, instead he and Floyd used their fearsome appearances to their advantage in scaring other merfolk, and when they were feeling especially daring, humans going for a swim. They loved nothing more than playing pranks on anyone they could.
Sometimes they would ghost around humans, brushing across their legs to strike fear. Sometimes, they would spook them by showing them their razor sharp teeth. The twins found great enjoyment in playing around with humans, watching them try to run as fast as they could back on land, yet still clumsily stomping in water and unable to gain speed with water resistance.
On one such occasion, Jade spotted a human child close to his age, alone at a secluded beach when he was swimming along the coast. The curious child was humming a pleasant tune while picking seashells, sea glass and any other item that they deemed worthy.
With how focused they were, they were a perfect target for Jade to play with. He swirled around them, occasionally brushing against their legs in fleeting touches. Instead of panicking or screaming in fear like he expected they would, they started to giggle and thrash around, dropping their collection of trinkets as they clenched at their sides before eventually falling backwards from loosing their balance. They let out a squeal, eyes clenched shut as they braced themselves for the impact.
On instinct, Jade caught them before they could fall backwards completely, cradling them in his arms without realising how close the two of them were. The child opened one eyelid, uncertain as to what exactly happened, and once his mismatched eyes came into eyesight, their other eyelid opened immediately to fully gaze upon the orbs so alike amber and topaz.
Jade was taken aback by the child's compliment, eels weren't beautiful like mermaids. No one had ever told him that his eyes were beautiful before, maybe they were pranking him back? But looking at their big, bright eyes and their face of awe, he didn't think they was lying.
"Uh, thanks," Jade said quietly, suddenly feeling a little shy.
The child gasped, their eyes lighting up. "You can talk!" they exclaimed. "And your fins look so pretty too! And your teeth!" they gently placed their hand on his cheek, trying to get a glimpse of his sharp teeth. "You're so cool!"
Jade felt himself blushing as the child continued to compliment him. He wasn't used to this kind of attention, especially from someone he had just met. Between the twins, Floyd was always the one who would get most attention with how expressive and impulsive he was. Jade, being comparatively composed, had less of a noticeable presence. His instincts were telling him to swim away from the child, but as he looked at the them, he felt a warmth seep into in his heart. They were so curious and genuine, and he felt that maybe, just maybe he could trust them.
"Thanks," Jade said again, smiling shyly. "That's really nice of you to say." And as he was greeted by an even brighter smile, he couldn't help but want to learn more about the curious human.
As days went by, Jade found himself visiting the same spot every day to see if the child was there. Similarly, the child would return to their spot whenever they could in hopes of seeing the mysterious sea creature. He would bring them gifts from the sea, adding to their collection of seashells and trinkets, and they would bring treats like rice balls and cookies from land, admiring his teeth when eating. He particularly loved the mushrooms inside the rice balls, and found himself wanting to learn all about them.
Jade would continue to tease his new friend, but rather than scaring them, he would blow bubbles in their face or tickle them and wrap his tail around them. The child would playfully swat at him, and tickle him back until the two of them were gasping for air, sitting at the shore enjoying each others company.
Eventually, Jade introduced Floyd and Azul to his new friend. Floyd had loved meeting the human, squeezing them and poking at their cheeks. Azul meanwhile, was rather shy, and gifted the child with some seashells he had collected. The child was fascinated with the two merfolk, unable to resist petting Azul's tentacles and exclaiming their interest in him. While Jade did feel a bit jealous his human was showing so much affection, he secretly delighted in the fact that his portion of snacks were always larger, more plentiful. Rice balls with more stuffing, cookies with more toppings, or sandwiches with various mushrooms, and with how his human always reached out for him first, he found satisfaction in being their favourite.
As Jade began to realize that his dear friend was different from the other creatures of the sea, he found himself wanting to see them more often, to see them smiling brightly at them, eyes full of affection sparkling in the sunlight.
Once they were old enough, Jade had Azul brew an water-breathing potion for his human, but it did come at a price. Being friends with Azul did have its benefits though, as Jade only needed to convince a few poor unfortunate merfolk from Azul's past to make a contract with him.
His dear pearl had wanted to see their home, and who was he to deny them when they looked at him with eyes full of anticipation. Jade had warned them of the deep sea's dangers however, and made them promise they would not let go of him. While this statement was largely true, the other sea creatures wouldn't dare lay a finger on his human, not when he would watch over them, but he found it incredibly endearing when they clinged onto him.
They swam deep into the sea, where Jade showed his human the wonders of his world. The Coral Sea was a mysterious and alluring place, with its crystal-clear waters, teeming with a variety of marine life. The colors of the coral reefs were breathtakingly beautiful. As they swam along, they saw a dazzling array of marine life - schools of brightly colored fish, graceful sea turtles, and even a majestic manta ray. Curious as ever, they would ask Jade questions about all things that caught their interest. Jade would patiently explain what he knew of the creatures, and when it was safe, he would let them pet some of them, delighting in the many expressions his dearest showed.
When the sea turned dark, they knew it was time to go home. As they made their way back to the shore, Jade felt adoration of his dearest swell in his chest, wanting to never let them go. His pearl, as if having read his mind, snuggled into his hold, leaning up to give him a gentle peck on his cheek, murmuring a 'thank you' for showing them his world.
Before they had to part, Jade handed them an elegant bracelet, made of their favourite sea glass and coral, which he had carefully strung together to make the perfect gift for his beloved. His pearl smiled ever-so brightly and thanked him, admiring the intricacy and beauty of the bracelet, clutching it to their chest. To his surprise, they handed him a simple bracelet of their own, with pieces of amber that resembled his piercing eyes and little mushroom charms, made to last in the rough sea. Feeling his heart swell even more, he held out his hand, and his pearl gently tied it on his wrist, to which he reciprocated the action. Raising his wrist up to admire it, the amber piece glowed beautifully, lit up by the sunset's soft rays.
He heard his love say again, turning to gaze at them, he noticed they weren't staring at the bracelet, but him. He smiled fondly, and gently cupped their cheek, his heartbeat racing as they leaned into his touch, melting. He slowly inched closer, and gently placed a kiss on their cold lips, and it seemed that all was right in the world as they reached up to tangle their fingers in his hair.
He wondered if his dearest knew it was merfolk culture to exchange gifts as a courting ritual, and how it would tie two individuals together. Either way, he could never let go of them, for he now regarded them as his mate. He knew that life with his beloved pearl would always be full of laughter and fun, and he couldn't imagine it any other way.

the foreign sensation of cold and slimy tentacles was a weird experience at first to say the least, but not an unwelcome one. smiling encouraging at him, you urged your boyfriend to continue, tentacles embracing you gently as though you’d break under his grasp, which you would have to admit, you may from the sheer size and strength he had right now. “where’d my confident businessboy go?” you teased, wrapping the tentacle shyly tugging at you around your waist, taking another in your hand as you pressed it a small kiss, holding it against your heart. “I’m really not afraid or disgusted Azul. i love you, regardless of how you look.” you could see red dusting across his cheeks to his ears, easily flustered as ever when you were alone. looking to the side, you shook your head at him and leaned over, peppering kisses up his jaw and to his lips, nibbling down and exploring his mouth.

“it’s so pretty,” you hummed, holding out your hand as he kissed your ring finger, lightly tickling it as he placed the piece of jewelry on. “did you make this?” you questioned, raising your hand up and looking at the seashell in the middle. pulling you flush against him, his tail wrapped around your waist as his hand tilted your head to look at him rather than the ring. “i did,” his face drew closer to your’s as the two of you closed your eyes, meeting in a passionate kiss, tongues swirling around and little whimpers. even a waterbreathing potion were useless if he were going to knock the breath out of you anyways like this. parting, you panted and looked up at him, grinning while wrapping your arms around his neck. “could i take this as a proposal?” you joked. instead you found another encouraging squeeze around your body with his hot breath hitting your ear in a whisper, “of course, when do you want the wedding?”

tongue trailing along your thigh his fingers dug into your hips, nails almost causing you to bleed, it would definitely leave a bruise. humming, he pulled away happily, wiping off the blood off his lips. “haah~♡ shrimpy, try not to be so stupid again, alright?” laughing, the eel was once again submerged in the water as you cursed at him, staring at your knee. the audacity he had to say that after being the one to bring you near jagged rocks under the water. “Floyd,” you hissed as he nipped at your ankle dangling in the water, giggling to himself. massaging your temples with your free hand you kick upwards in the water, only to feel yourself dragged in from down under, holding your breath as Floyd towered you, nose red with an annoyed expression. “you’re really playful today, aren’t you, shrimpy?” struggling to hold your breath you barely manage to see his sharp teeth as he held onto your injured leg, tail coiling around you while he went in to ‘give’ you air.
