He was minding his business, being a good little Nyulop and keeping his nose out of trouble. That's what Oliver always did, even when the other children ran off on 'adventures' or just to cause problems. Oliver would simply stay safe and secure in the village. There was plenty to watch around the village anyway. Some adults offered to even take him fishing but there wasn't anyway Oliver was about to go near the water. So he sat watching others going about their own days. He actually enjoyed watching others do things. He could just observed and be happy.
His gaze ended up following a small Hammin that was wondering up a small ledge near the water. Of all the creatures around the island, Oliver had found Hammins to be the most unpredictable. It was just walking around with its little feets on this peaceful day. In an odd way Oliver found himself drawn to keep watching the strange creature as it made its path up the little ledge. Paddling on to the edge.
Only to late did Oliver realize the Hammin did not intend on stopping it's patrol, even if it meant diving straight off the edge into the water below.
He didn't know what came over him as he raced over to the small creature. It was much to close to the water then his liking and any sane thought would've reminded him that this Hammin could probably swim while Oliver could not.
Just in time he caught the little creature in his paws saving it from danger.
His relief lasted barely five seconds as he hadn't the best footing and found himself rushing down into the water below.
He couldn't breath
The ringing in his ears was to familiar as he struggled to find footing. The worry of not being able to only causing him to frail about a bit more.
Finally his foot found solid ground and he pushed himself back up to the surface gasping for air.
He couldn't get enough air.
His body was shaking and he tried his best to breath in
The Hammin in his hands started to fight it's way out of his grasp, which was the only reminder that Oliver had kept holding it through all of his panicking.
If Oliver could he'd let the thing go but his body wasn't listening, it only shook as he tried his hardest to breath.
He couldn't make out the Hammins little sounds of excitement over the sound of the water around him.
There will probably be a continue of this from me, as there is more to the story. I talked some plot stuff with a very kind individual on da discord and discussed how our babies will be meeting. Probably wont be another comic next time, will probably be just a picture we'll see.
Also Ik I disappeared for a few years... Idk if I want to share what happened just yet but just know Whistlercrest lived rent free in my head this whole time. This group is amazing and so kind. ... Also have yet to draw Oliver without water in the picture XD poor baby his whole character is he's scared of water
