Delta
See the light as it shines on the sea? It's blinding
But no one knows, how deep it goes
You know what Delta likes?

Shiny things

Apparently, metal often gets super gross and rusty under water as well, things tend to fall apart rather quickly. The more precious objects are typically found at shipwrecks, sometimes even in boxes, so it's strange to find such an object so close to the shore.

Delta immediately notices it purely based on the gleam of it. The way the sun reaches into the water and bounces off of the round disk-like object. It seems a bit wedged between the coral and so, Delta swims up and carefully removes it, first checking to make sure that the coral is fine before finally taking a glance at it.

It's an absolutely beautiful thing, perfectly handcrafted. Why would someone throw something like this into the ocean? It's a real pity too as she actually has no idea what it is.

Good thing for the unfortunate person who lost it, Delta is only a few feet from the surface and is hopefully in perfect sight.

Fuuuuuuuuuuck.

Jack wasn't a clumsy person by nature. (Or an easy going one. Or a kind one. Or... yeah, you get the picture). And yet, accidents did happen. Accidents like taking something from the inside pocket of one's waistcoat, dragging one's compass out along with it, and sending it slinking off into the ocean along the side of the docks.

Crouching down along the edge of the boardwalk and glaring into the water, Jack was somewhat elated to find that the object hadn't fallen far. What's more, there was a definitely-not-exactly-fish shaped figure swimming around there, and the thoughts he picked up from the range of his telepathy were clear: shiny.

Knowing better than to shout into the water and expect her to hear him, Jack did the next best reasonable thing.

He tossed a stone into the water as well. Not at her, exactly. Just near enough to get attention (probably).

It must be incredibly lucky for the poor lad that Delta not only plucked up the object but also that she noticed the stone. Grasping at it with her hands, she turned it over before staring up at the surface. Who was throwing stuff down?

Cautiously, she slowly started to swim up to the surface, pausing to make sure that they weren't about to throw a knife or something stupid like that before finally poking her head above the water. Looking around, she tried to find the figure before she saw a man, peering down. "Hello? Did you throw the rock?" And if not- well, this was certainly a very awkward conversation to say the least. Lets hope that knife doesn't show up.

Crouched now at the edge of the docks, Jack let out a breath of relief as the mermaid (as it turned out) swam up towards the surface. There was no wonder or novelty in his expression; the captain dealt with the merfolk regularly in his line of business, and he found them to be reliable business partners, actually. Still, this wasn't about that right now.

"I did," he told the girl. "Wanted to get your attention. You've got my compass - that shiny thing you just found between the rocks." He nodded back to where she would have picked it up. "I'd like it back."

Never had a human actually ask her for their object back. Tilting her head, she let out a thoughtful hum. Should she be nice and give it back? That would certainly minimize any problems... but other thoughts were swirling in her head. She was a tad bit wary as well, she was kind of wanting something out of this. If this was his, she seriously just saved his compass for him. Shouldn't she get something in return?

Finally, after a brief moment of silence, the mermaid spoke up. "How do I know this is your compass? And why exactly should I give it back?" Her voice remained calm and open ended, hoping to show that she wasn't threatening him (not yet at least). This was just a simple little conversation and all she wanted was the answers to her questions: then he would possibly get his compass back.

Sensing the what's in it for me vibes in her thoughts, Jack sat comfortably now on the boardwalk, one leg dangling over the side of the docks as he regarded her. "If you turn it over, there's an engravin' on the back in the shape of an eye," he told her, nodding as if challenging her to take a look. "And you should give it back because it doesn't belong to you." As if the captain abided by any of those rules or honour himself.

"But if you want somethin' to sweeten the deal, name it. I ain't got much with me, but if you got a price then I'll have the compass back in exchange." Or he'd just wait until it was back in his hands and walk off. Who knew, honestly.

With a very obvious raise of an eyebrow, Delta looked down at the compass and turned it over. Sure enough, there was an engraving. While she would've believed him by just saying that, the specificity was only adding to her belief. This was his compass, absolutely. She knew better than to keep it from him for good, but who's to say that she couldn't get at least a little something from this? Afterall, without her, he may not have even gotten his compass back at all.

Luckily, this fellow was flexible enough to work with her and actually seemed pretty calm, something Delta could really appreciate. "Well... I don't really want or need much for this. Do you have anything that I normally couldn't find in the ocean? Most stuff like compasses tend to break away when they come into the ocean." Honestly, she was willing to take anything that he had to offer that wasn't a pretty stone or a shell. "I'm open to a lot of things. Something pretty or something I cant normally get would be nice." She wanted to seem reasonable so he wouldn't get mad at her for wishing to bargain with him.
