Laughing, Bridle decided that his little game wasn't going to work after all, since Coral was so keen on getting him wet! He shook the droplets of water off his coat in a futile gesture...and then decided against it. After all, what was the point if he was only going to get wet anyway?Shrugging and sighing, he made it look as if getting in the water was such a hassle when in fact it was actually an activity he was beginning to enjoy.

He jumped into the water, very ungracefully, and proceeded to dunk Coral underneath, a repeat of his earlier attempt with Vapour, only this time he managed to suceed. When she resurfaced, he grinned smugly at her.

"That's for flicking a quite content stallion with water! And as for you..." he said, turning towards Vapour, "What's this about 'whiney stallion'?" he chased after her, knowing that it was a poor attempt, but at least it would provide some amusement for the two mares.

Coral snorts with indignition about being dunked.

"How dare you!" she tries to sound entirely disgusted without bursting out laughing or grinning.

She flips on her back and begins kicking her legs, sending large waves and sprays of water towards Bridle and Vapor, a huge grin on her face.

((Methinks I shall add something a little different... :D)

Vapor watched with drowsy eyes, the water starting to become overly comfortable for some reason. She tried to grin at Brindle and start to back away but her whole body felt like going passive. In fact she made it a step, staring pleadingly at Bridle before her head rose up as sightless eyes found the ceiling and her body went limp, quickly comsumed by the water and a thickened fog of steam. Something had happened to her to cause this fainting spell, but what it was- that was the hard thign to figure out. She had seemed fine a moment ago, then suddenly something kicked in...

((Wah! We posted at like the same time... I'll post a slightly-edited version of this under Lakegazer's post so it will make sense. :?: ))

Bridle, laughingly chasing after Vapour, knew that something was wrong when she didn't move away. When her eyes looked at him, begging for help and her body went still, he was nearly paralyzed with fear. He saw her go under, and he whinned in alarm to Coral. Without even thinking about what he was doing, he dove underneath the steaming water, looking frantically for where he saw Vapour go under. He spotted her unmoving figure and swam towards it, hoping that it wasn't too late. He dove deeper, until he was directly below her, so that when he surfaced, her body would be lying across his back.

As he paddled upwards, her body hit his back like a ton of bricks. All that pure sinewy muscle of her wonderfully fit body was suddenly not such a good thing. Even though the water made her somewhat lighter, he struggled to push upwards, the weight of her pressing down on him, sinking him more and more.

Bridle realized that he was making less progress than before, but Coral had still not shown! She must be trying to figure out where they were through the fog of steam. After all, it was a fairly large pool. He then did the only thing possible-he released her body from his back and grabbed the one thing he knew he could really pull on that would still keep his legs free-her tail. He knew she would forgive him-after all, this was about trying to save her life.

Without the extra added bodyweight on him, Bridle moved quite quickly, gripping her sapphire tail in his mouth and kicking furiously with all his legs. When he broke the surface, he dove underneath her again, this time allowing her body to lie on his back. He could hold her, hopefully until Coral got there. He called out to her, neighing an entreaty, hoping desperately that she would get there before the weight became too much for him. He tried paddling towards the edge, but it was too much. All he could do was wait and hope that Coral would spot them.

((Whee! I get to use part of my CPR training. :-D))

Coral instantly stops kicking water, and watches Bridle dive under trying to pull Vapor to the surface. Frozen for a bit, she doesn't try to help. Bridle was pretty strong anyways...

Pretty soon, Coral can tell that Bridle needs her help, and actually moves to their side of the pool, jumping out of the water to help by pulling from above.

When she and Bridle managed to push and pull her out of the water, Coral goes into healer-mode. She nudged Vapor's head so it was at an angle that would keep an open airway... and watched to see if Vapor was still breathing.

If she wasn't... Coral wouldn't know what to do. She just had to hope Vapor still was. All she knew was to make sure a fainted person/Serian/whatever could still breathe.

She frowned. It might be all the steam... which meant they would all have to get out of there.
