We’re not so bad, once you get to know us. The singing thing, that has perks for you, you know. Would you rather see us in our true form, warty and spouting spines as long as a swordfish’s snout?
It could be worse, after all. You might have fallen prey to a great white, a sting ray. Even a crazed squid is nothing to mess with around here. Stop thinking, it will hurt less that way. Closer now, you’ve almost found the edge. Yes, you’ve met the stuff of legends. Too bad we won’t be getting to know each other.
