When I come back to my senses, it is morning.
"Isso, is you now?" Aqua asked.
"I understand the water-song,
You went to somewhere that I can't follow
I hope what you found there
was worth what you gave up.>
I look around.
I see Teqa has been tied up and gagged
With a black eye purpling on her face
Awake and staring at both of us
with a wary lack of hostility?
"Aqua is voice of mer-girls now," she replies firmly.
I'm not sure if it counts as a coup or regime change
if there's only two people in your government, Aqua.
I blink again.
Wait... there's something important I'm forgetting.
"Isso, here." Aqua shoved a bag into my hands.
Wait, this thing is made of plastic,
where did it come from?
I couldn't help a demented little giggle.
"Behold the instrument of our salvation!
Aqua replies, "What."
