    Seasons came and went for Lexa who had thrown herself into guarding Cascade Bay after the riots and the tiger attack. The governor of the bay had stepped down and Lexa knew this would be a perilious time where one wrong move could send them all into the depths of the unknown. She would have put her name forward as someone to be considered for the position except she hadn't. This was not her world and her leadership skills were for a world far different and more deadlier than Pandora.

    Her feelings of not belonging here only intensified over the days and when she heard about a strange island off the coast of Cascade Bay, Lexa offered to investigate. That was the primary reason for being in Swallow Falls, arriving on the edge of the island with a wary look and her hand on her sword. So far things seemed somewhat normal, well by the standards of this world in general, but there were sounds coming from further in.

    Lexa was prepared for anything at this point.

    Except maybe a foodimal.
    thanks steel! <3

    Imra had finally got around to exploring the island as she was curious about the reports and rumors of living food creatures - something that was new even with the amount of aliens she had seen. Having her own mode of transport helped and she had flown straight out there. Landing on one of the beaches, she glanced around to notice another human female arriving on the island.

    Imra's attention was drawn to the sounds coming from the jungle a moment later. She took a step or two towards the tree, wondering what the other young woman was going to do or if something was going to approach them. With that in mind, she tensed - waiting to see what happened next and if she needed to leap into action.

    Lexa had no idea what to expect and with great reason. She stood, watching and waiting, noticing something smaller scurrying by just in the entrance of the jungle. She also knew she wasn't alone on the island, her eyes flicking towards the other young woman who seemed to be the only other human(or at least humanoid).

    "Do you know what this place is?" Lexa asked, waiting to here her thoughts before going into the jungle. She wasn't sure if she should be preparing for a fight or if she could get through this without resorting to violence.

    Her attention was half on the sounds that came from the treeline beyond the beach. She was used to all sorts - being from a place where multiple alien races were a known thing but what lived here had got her curious if the stories were true. Tearing her attention away from the forest as the other woman spoke, she wondered what kind of food-based creatures may be out there.

    "I'm afraid not if you mean what's the island called. I was just curious about the life-forms seen here" Imra replied as she scanned the island in cause someone else was out there yet she was picking up no human thoughts. At least animals would leave them alone if they didn't prove to be a threat.

    So both of them didn't know. That wasn't exactly good although it only meant they, or at least her, would have to go in without knowledge and report back if things were dangerous or not.

    To let threats go without dealing with them and them to potentially come to the bay and wreck havoc? Nope, not on her watch.

    "Makes things difficult but not impossible." Lexa mused softly. "Do you want to accompany me to see if there are any threats here or if they are simply non-violent?" Lexa asked. Two people were better than one and they could watch each others backs while exploring strange territory.

    Her curiosity was part of the reason she was out here, she was also wondering these things were dangerous. Especially with another human present, six years of being a superhero meant she wanted to help the other woman if she was just checking for threats or seeing if the creatures were like most animals.

    In other words, just wanting to left alone but moving inland was the clear way to find that out and she swung her full attention to the older woman.

    "That sounds like a good idea and of course I will" the blond girl replied, her brief scan had proven the creatures out there weren't resistant to telepathic powers. And if they ran into trouble, she had an ally during exploring the jungle.

    Lexa simply nodded before making sure her weapons were still on her person and her sword still in hand. Swiftly and silently she began to move ahead, keeping her eyes sharp for any other sudden movement. It would have gone faster if she was on a horse but also that would produce a lot more noise.

    Up ahead, sitting on a branch overlooking the pathway was another strange creature. It looked at them, made a noise but didn't attack. Lexa looked around, wondering if it had called for attackers but there was nothing coming towards them. Perhaps it had simply been a friendly greeting?

    Imra debated using her flight ring to hover just off the ground as she moved to follow the other woman but shook her head - deciding against it. No point revealing that ace in the hole unless it was necessary and she fell silent while they moved forward, the woman seemed to keep an eye out for signs of trouble.

    Realizing she didn't know the armed lady's name, she frowned - introductions could wait until the right moment. An odd noise caught her attention and she glanced up at the creature - it looked like a cross between a monkey and a meringue; one could call it a meringue-utan and she smiled a little at the thought, that was almost cute, almost. Yet it could prove a threat as who knew what that noise meant?

    Lexa was mildly confused. Pandora had shown her a variety of things that should not exist but this wasn't even in that category.

    "I've never seen anything like this." Lexa looked around. For now it seemed that the creatures weren't here to attack them, so why were they here?

    Studying the 'meringue-utan' as much as it seemed to be watching them, Imra slowly nodded so not to startle it - it could be called a wild animal. Thankfully the food creature seemed to have fallen silent but her travelling companion had spoken up.

    "Same here but considering what this place throws at you, I'm not surprised by these kind of hybrids" the blonde girl replied quietly as she wondered if she should do another brief mental sweep of the surrounding area to see what else was out there and if any of them had drawn closer.

    "What I'm more concerned about is that they're not attacking us. Either they don't want to or something else is at play here."

    The former commander carefully looked around and once she had taken a few steps she felt something nudge at her foot. Looking down to see a walking strawberry with the cutest face ever.

    "Well, maybe we haven't done anything they deem threatening. It's that or more dangerous creatures are just further inland" the blonde girl replied quietly, not wanting to spook the foodimal. The other woman did raise a good point and Imra did a quick sweep of the island - picking up no other humans in the area.

    Turning to face the other human, she blinked at what had just joined them then gave it a small smile. That was definitely cute yet she was a little wary at the same time - just in case it turned out to a pack animal and a possible hunter.

    The other woman had a point to which Lexa gave a curt nod and then looked back at the foodimal. Even if she'd never seen anything like it before, she had to admit there was a small amount of adorableness to be felt. "Their actions, or lack of, speaks volumes. I feel confident enough that, for the most part, they are not a threat."

    The strawberry foodimal seemed to understand, its smile widening and then they leaped up to which Lexa responded by holding out her arms. The foodimal seemed content to just settle down in her grasp and Lexa knew she now had a friend. "Why don't you show us where you live? I'm not interested in hurting you or your family." Lexa cooed gently.

    As the other lady swung her attention back to the second lifeform, Imra glanced around to notice the first one that she seen had now vanished. That kind of concerned her as who knew where it had gone or for what reason - activating her mental powers just enough to serve as an early warning system. She then turned to reply after her new ally spoke up "Most animals aren't unless they see a threat themselves, and an island full of wildlife, possibly food-based lifeforms seems an interesting place to explore"

    Smiling as the living strawberry took a liking to her companion, Imra was torn between stroking it as it seemed friendly enough or not in case that action scared it. She could send comforting thoughts at the foodimal if she moved to pet it but that would be an one-way thing. Settling for letting the berry make a first move instead, the blonde girl let the older woman handle things for now.

    "Maybe in your world and this one too but the one I came from wasn't quite like that." Lexa replied. Animals that had been twisted by the nuclear fallout, most becoming more aggressive and ready to rip apart anything that moved. Pauna was a great example of it - she had lost many great warriors to the creature.

    Their ecosystem might not even consider most as a threat unless actions deemed otherwise. So far her theory was true, and coupled with her ally's words made it seem more than likely that unless they did something threatening, they would remain safe from whatever wrath they could inflict.

    "Since we both are not a threat to this island and its inhabitants, would you want to accompany further in?" Lexa asked, waiting for an answer before she began moving towards the center of the island. The strawberry settled in her arms, clearly pleased about going for this walk. A pity she wouldn't be able to keep the cute strawberry when all this was said and done.

    To pull it out of its natural habitat would be cruel and she couldn't even be sure it could live anywhere else.

    "What is wildlife like in your homeworld then?" Imra asked politely, bringing up her mental barriers. One or two of the animals inland were now reacting to her psychic scans even though she had generalised it to a wider area.

    Luckily none of them were telepathic or that would mean big trouble as who knew what was out there exactly. She had got very brief snippets of instinct-based thoughts like eating, sleeping or fear of predators. Her attention was drawn back to the older woman as she spoke up, asking a question.

    "Of course I'd love to join you, this place and its wildlife seems intriguing" the blonde teenager called back before moving to follow Lexa and her new friend, eyes scanning the immediate area as they went.

    "Well we had less than what this place has. Those that remained were often dangerous, ready to attack on sight. Few were prey." At least that was in her part of the world where radiation had all but wiped the world out. There were survivors, of course there was otherwise she would not have been born.

    But it was a fraction of what it once was.

    "Radiation killed most of them. It became a survival of the fittest situation."
