From a distance, it appeared that the sandy floor had a massive boulder protruding from the other miscellaneous rocks scattered about. On getting closer, one would see how it was merely a trick of the light, a large enchanted bubble surrounding a decent sized area. A blurry figure moved around inside, tending to various bits of greenery.
Sheers and clippers levitating in his magical grip, the hydrus Lain padded around the underwater garden, nipping buds here, and trimming an offending stalk there. His teal feathers and webbed appendages glistened with water, having recently entered through a large pool at the edge of the circular greenhouse. Curious markings adorned his breast and sides, but that was commonplace among the cursed.
He clucked approvingly at seeing some large green peppers hanging from their parent plant, accompanied by some equally ripe tomatoes. Another few days, and they’d be ready for harvest.
Waving a webbed wing shimmering with magic, Vys activated the carefully crafted sprinkler system, sending a gentle mist down upon the plans, and himself. That had been tricky to craft and enchant. Removing salt from water and then sending it misting down in just the right amounts…
Thank goodness for magic.
Vys took a deep breath as the mist settled over his own form, cursed like so many others to find water more comforting than air. There was a group he went to, it helped cope. Of course, its official purpose was to exchange bird watching information, but Vys just liked knowing he wasn’t alone in the depths.
The natural light streaming through the kelp forest began to fade, as it did every day around this time. Small stones set in seashells around the garden sparkled to life; another enchantment to try and give the plants a few precious more hours of light. They still didn’t last as long as Vys would like, but at least he was getting successful harvests now.
Gardening underwater was a chore…it was impossible without magic and engineering. At least he had one of those covered.
The Lain hung up the gardening implements near the exit pool, diving in to slowly swim around the bubbled structure, checking for any cracks or possible leaks. He then cruised away, aiming towards a small underwater cave adjacent to the structure. It was a strange way to live, but the cursed were a strange breed.
