Pet Name: Eirianedd
It is a stormy night. The sea is wild. Thunder rumbles in the sky while lightning lights it up.
In the middle of the storm, a small ship gets tossed about by the waves. The Candy Cane, as it is known, a small vessel with an even tinier crew.
The Candy Cane's courageous crew, led by Captain Eirianedd, is doing all that they can to brave the storm. A candychan, First Mate Ceinlys, flits to and fro trying to hang on to anything so that the wind doesn't blow him away. Last, but by no means the least, Boatswain Rainblug, a gigantic Rainblug tries to hold the mast up.
This is not the Candy Cane's first voyage in stormy seas, nor will it be their last as the brave crew fights to keep the water from sweeping them away. The brave trio is holding out hope that land is not too far away so that they can get their precious cargo safely delivered.
They had left Shenkuu three days ago en route to Mystery Island for a luau. Delivering paper lanterns had been their task. The sea had been kind to them with fair winds and calm waters. A few scary encounters with pirates had been successfully evaded as the Candy Cane could sprout wings at a moment's notice and fly away!
Unfortunately, earlier tonight the wings had been hit by lightning and the ship had to crash land into the sea. The brave crew was thus limited to being in the water pending repairs. Still, the sky was in no way safer than the sea at this point.
Lightning flashes close by and a load roar of thunder joins in. A massive wave suddenly swallows the ship, and the crew hangs tight to whatever part of the ship they can. They surface after what seems like forever, and the rain that had been pelting them for so long has stopped. Soon the sea stills and the brave crew take a deep shaky breath and survey the damage.
It is not too terrible, surprisingly; everything can be easily fixed. Quickly springing into action, before the storm can make a return, the trio crew set about repairing their vessel.
Captain Eirianedd draws her faithful binoculars and surveys the horizon.
"Land 'ho!" she hollers and steers the ship towards the big mass.
Hopefully, they'll find supplies to fix their vessels and stock up their rations. Not to mention ensure their cargo has not been damaged by all the water.
Two great cheers the Captain docks the ship on land and the trio rush into the storage hold to retrieve what they can. Luckily, water hasn't breached the hold and all of the contents are safe and dry. Still, bringing it all ashore might be the better idea in case the storm comes back.
Oddly enough, the sea's water level seems to be dropping alarmingly fast. Suddenly, a bath plug appears in front of Captain Eirianedd's face.
"Time to get out of the bath, Captain Eirianedd, and into bed!"
