“What?” Alaina gave a quick glance down. “Oh, shit. You know, Gabriel, I really don't think that now is the best time for you to be noticing stuff like this. I mean...Gabriel? Gabriel? Are you even paying attention to me?”
“Don't move,” he hissed. He shook his head. “No. I mean, I want you to move, just...very slowly.” Gabriel's skin had paled; his eyes wide as he stared behind her. “Let me get my sword, and-”
“Sword? What are you talking about? Is that anti-unicorn thing behind me?” she joked.
“Those creatures don't live in the water.”
“What is it?” Alaina asked, her voice trembling.
“It's...” He swallowed. “Okay, you can't panic, but...there's a sea serpent behind you.”
She broke out into a fit of giggles. “A sea serpent? This is a lake. Sea serpents wouldn't live in a lake...would they?” Alaina turned around, and let out a high pitched scream.
