ooc: Like the name? Anyways, I'm gonna be totally illogical and plot-challenged here by saying that they were thrown into the water by an earthquake. So yeah.
Soul could feel the earth shaking.
Having never experienced something such as this, naturally the first thing the orange tabby did was panic. Crouching low on the ground, he looked for a tree to climb so that he could freak out in the safety of tall branches, completely disregarding the fact that that went against every existing safety regulation in the book. But Soul couldn't read anyway.
He spotted a nice tall oak slightly trembling with the sudden force, but before he could run towards it and huddle, he heard a terrible snapping noise, watching in dismay as it fell to the ground.
I'm so screwed! Soul thought, glancing around with wide amber eyes. Noises erupted all around him, and he saw more and more trees crash down to the ground and crush much more lush greenery beneath them.
He was, essentially, trapped.
If he tried to take shelter in the trees, there was a high chance of being crushed by one. But if he stayed on the grassy plains beside the water, then the water level might rise and carry him out to the waterfall- which was a very, very dangerous place. You either drowned, broke a few bones, or got out with a severe psychological scarring in terms of your feelings towards water.
Option B sounds the most preferable. That's... discouraging, he thought, inwardly sighing. But there's always the chance that the water won't do that... I'll have to take the chance.
Digging his claws into the trembling dirt beneath him, he tensed his muscles and clenched his teeth, squeezing his eyes closed.
A few seconds later felt like days, but just when he thought that the shaking was getting weaker, he felt a cold, seeping feeling in his paws.
His eyes snapped open, and he looked down, startled to see his own horrified face reflected beneath him.
Soul spun around, his terror deepening when he found himself face to face with an over-flowing river. The small waves in the water were getting rougher and steadily growing in size.
"I'll have to run for it," He murmured, turning around and trying to judge the distance between him and the trees. But before he could come to a conclusion a massive swelling sound roared behind him, and then he was spinning around the face the river for the second time in less than a minute.
Only this time, there was a colossal tidal-wave staring him in the face.
The wave swallowed Soul whole.
