Into the shallow water dropped a vermillion ribbon, it's color deluting soon into a deep burgundy that seemed to blend with the waters floor below. Long whisps of white hair cascaded down a pale back, the bottoms brushing along the top of the water. Her thin digits ran up through the luminous white of her hair, pulling it as it tickled the sides of her cheeks. Chastity left her hand up, keeping the hair out of her face, while the other slowly dropped to her shoulder, caressing a small wound that had been inflicted early that day. Her face presented mild pain is it shot through the nerves in her neck, making her face cringe with displeasure. Her tongue slowly escaped her lips, running along the swollen part to feel the small lump beginning to form on her lip. It was a hindrance she didn't take kindly too.
Chastity hadn't actualy expected the creature not to fall after she strung him with three arrows. But it seemed his drive to kill her was greater then hers to kill him. It was irritating to be hunted for her race. He caught her with his mighty paw, but she was able to sling an arrow into his mouth, which finally sent the beast to his knees. Chastity closed her wayward eyes, tired from having to quarrel with the creature. She was unimpressed with his behavior and perfered to just be left alone. What harm could she bring? She couldn't even scale the walls of his mind with hers, so she was incapable, and incompitent.
With a deep uneasy sigh Chastity lowered herself into the cool water, her body shivering to resemble gooseskin. It caused her eyelids to react and flutter down, baring the cold sweep that knocked her sences off their feet. She glanced through narrow eyes down at her reflection. How utterly pale she was. How utterly plain her appearence made her look. Her eyes seemed to glare back at her through the water. It was confronting her to the point where she suddenly became engulfed within the water, her skin almost glowing a cold blue in the clear water. Chastity gazed forward, her knees entering her view as she did so, though the outline of her skin appeared fuzzy, but the color was imence.
Pressure began to build in her chest as the same breath in her lungs remaind still as the seconds rolled on. Her hair began to float around her head, entering her line of vision and blinding it from the rest of the undersea world. Chastity let out a small cry, pushing her legs down onto the bottom of the lake and pushing herself up out of the water with a gasp. Rocks surrounded her, as well as a small bay of shallow water on the other side of the small body of water. Strands of white hair lay across her face as she pulled out of the water, her eyes flickering over to the clothes she had left on the rock nearby. Chastity went to pull the hair from her face in an irritated swipe, but froze as the sound of breathing slammed into her ears. She waded through the water quickly, her hand gripping the middle of the wooden bow, her fingers sliding across the feathered end of the arrow to pull it to the sting swiftly.
Silence suddenly fell across her body. The water seemed to still as she stared forwards, in the directiong her bow was facing, with hair still matted against her face, though her eyes still seemed to peer past, ignoring the blind spots that she occasionally would spot in her glare forwards. Chastity had no care for the fact she was clotheless, as her hair covered the entire front and back of her body, like a white cloak that only seemed to falter its cover over her shoulders and neck. She remind silent, only to with her pose did she present the question of 'who's there' to the being that suddenly became apperent. True, she didn't not know how long they had been there, but how long would they stay all depended on their presence being harming or helping.
