Cape Holiday (Event): Wheel of Life
From Mr. Love Wiki
Cape Holiday (Event) (Lucien) Stage: 5 (Story)
Worn out from the day, I had planned to go to bed early, but then came a knock on my door.
I thought something had happened, so I threw on my sun jacket and hurried to open the door. To my surprise, it was Lucien, who had not long ago just said goodnight to me.
MC: What is it?
Lucien: I received word from the front desk that sea turtles are laying eggs on the island. Wanna go see?
I'd never seen sea turtle eggs. My need for sleep disappeared instantly.
A worker led Lucien and I to the beach under the night sky.
Sure enough, the beach-- empty just this morning-- was now crowded with sea turtles.
MC: I've never seen so many sea turtles...
Lucien was tickled at my expression of wonder and grinned wider than I'd ever seen him.
Lucien: Laying eggs is typically a collective behavior among sea turtles.
MC: You mean... they all agreed beforehand to produce eggs?
Lucien: They didn't exactly agree, but syncing up ensures that a great number of babies will hatch.
Lucien: More than predators can eat, so that ensures that some of the babies will make it back to the sea.
MC: Lucien, how do you always know everything...
Lucien laughed off my question and just clasped his left hand tighter around my shoulder.
Just then, the worker and Lucien said something, but I couldn't hear over the waves.
MC: What is it?
Lucien: The worker said if you're willing to wait, once the sea turtles go back to the ocean, we can bury some eggs.
Lucien: This way, they won't be exposed to birds pecking them when the tide goes back out.
MC: Let's do it! Let's do it!
I almost jumped in excitement. But then I suddenly remembered that Lucien always seemed to be advocating for survival of the fittest and the law of nature.
MC: Uh... So will you be joining me in this little venture, Lucien?
MC: Besides the eggs are already buried, we're just burying them a little better--
Before I could pile on more reasons, Lucien cut me off with a warm embrace.
His low but warm voice resonated from his chest, along with his steady heartbeat.
