Random Mini-Event: Worm is the Word



In the large and beautiful trees in the mangrove exists the Teredo Worm. The long, pale mollusks burrow into the deep red wood of loose mangrove logs, creating channels and holes in the rotting wood. Considered a delicacy by some, these worm-like creatures help the breakdown cycle of the marshy area... usually.

Today, they retreat from the logs and climb away from the water and onto the surrounding trees, plants, anything they can get ahold of. Their pale bodies cover every surface and ripple the water, making the whole grove look as if it is slowly moving.

Will this scene cause those to feel squeamish, or is this delicacy a feast for the eyes?

Disgusting.  One of the few times Tachi leaves the Bamboo and he’s met with this horrendous sight, pale fat worms crawling over near every surface, like a plague devouring the land. His face is twisted, muzzle wrinkled and orange eyes twitching at the corners as he watches the mess unfold. He can’t resist the desire to crush them all, squish them under paw even if only to stop that gross, squelchy sound that filled his ears. With gritted teeth he slammed a paw down, only to grimace further at the feeling against his paw pad, the gross wetness to it, slime and squish and- worms were the worst.

Sephiran had been wading through the shallows of the mangroves, searching for a plant his mother had taught him could be used as poison. He had only seen it a few times in his life, and he was young at the time. But he remembered the bright purple flowers well, and how they grew in batches usually mixed in with other plants. Given the environment of the mangrove, there was an array of foliage, especially along the shoreline. So, the Saxe boy figured this place would be a good place to start his search.

What he hadn’t expected to find, was a swarm of slimy, pale worms crawling across nearly every surface of a clearing he approached. They seemed to appear out of nowhere, their squirming bodies appearing to alter the earth itself to create a trick on the mind. It looked like everything was moving. He suddenly stopped, eyes narrowing at the scene before him, as his lips peeled back to reveal his fangs. This was fucking disgusting, and it impeded on his search… which made him angry.

The mongrove wouldve been the perfect place to look for herbs. At least thats what she had thought before she arrived. Voodoo was not someone who felt disgust usually. Her paws pushed into the soil once she reachded further inside the winding trees she saw them. There had to be a few hundred at least they covered everything.

Some kind of worm? Voodoo looked confused her face contorted as she stared up at the bark. Wriggling on every inch she almost didnt notice one on the floor. She growled pulling a paw away. There was no way she was getting worm blood on her paws.

Tachi was a bit of a dick, to be honest. If he had to suffer these worms...he didn't see why everyone else here shouldn't. And he wasn't alone for very long either, a purple wolf appeared to be just as grossed out as he was, and that grey and black woman was growling like that would do any good. Could worms even hear? Did they have ear holes or something?

He paused for a moment, as if considering what to do next, turned around and then as hard as he could manage he kicked out with his hind legs. Punting the wriggly worms at whoever was unfortunate enough to be in the worm firing zone.

At first, Sephiran had assumed he was alone in this swarm of worms. But soon enough, two other wolves appeared to witness the disgusting oddity. A brown-colored male, who interestingly enough had fangs like himself… and a girl who seemed older but smaller than the two males. His tongue slipped from his jaws, sliding across his mouth in a perverse manner as he looked over at her, examining her. Thinking disgusting thoughts. But given the situation, this wasn’t the time to pursue such ideas. He needed to get the hell out of this place first.

As he turned to leave, he noticed that worms had crawled to his paws, and were trying to wiggle between his toes to burry beneath him. A growl resonated inside his chest, and he slammed a paw down to squish whatever was in range. Slimy guts splattered onto the ground and between his toes, which made him angrier. So disgusting.

Ooc: quick tag so we can get this done! <3

Voodoo had planned on taking herbs but maybe these worms could have an affect if she used its blood in a poison. Her eyes narrowed unfortunately in the path of the flying worms one of the large males kicked. Four or five creatures slapped onto her maw thank the gods her mouth was closed.

She flinched when they landrd but found herself not recoiling. Instead she laughed taking a paw and getting the worms off. "Great aim." she cackled before beginning to pile some worms in front of her to take.

Never suffer alone, that's what Tachi reckoned. All this slime and ickiness made him wanna beat someone up, fight anyone or anything, but any battleground would be better than here. The battlefield wasn't far and he left the Mangroves with a sourness on his tongue, a sense of distaste that wouldn't shift, not that he tried all that hard to chase it away, you know? Sometimes bad moods settled like rain-clouds, a storm looming on the horizon would roll in whether the folks down below liked it or not.

And being all around that grossness made him want to make others suffer too, not too much but enough to sate his needs.

The female tried to banter with the other male, but was ignored. Which, wasn’t all too surprising to Sephiran, seeing that this place wasn’t the ideal grounds to engage in conversation. The worms all at his feet were trying to crawl up his legs, and he started to kick them off, flinging them away. His patience had already run thin, a snarl erupting from his maw as he turned away and headed back toward where he came from. Whether the girl and the boy got swallowed up by the swarm, Sephiran didn’t care. Hell, later on, he could return and feast on their bodies if that happened. He would be returning at a later time to continue his search for his plant… but for now, he would recede back into the shadows.
