The White Dove sighed as it looked around, having found an area to rest in as it dragged a human into the area as well. It needed to eat after all, so it did just that while occasionally looking around in slight paranoia. It hated the idea of being caught, so it ate everything it could off of the human before standing up and pulling it's mask on again with a soft growl. It left the decimated corpse behind then, nothing but picked-clean bones and a couple of pieces of entrail that it didn't want because they was too fatty left behind. It trotted around while looking around quietly, it's cloak blowing in the wind as a haunting song came humming from it's vocal chords. It was a slow, haunting, clearly mournful song, one of a creature that was very very far out of it's element.
Gemini quietly stalked his way through a misty forest, walking at a fairly slow pace for something of his size, his eight limbs moving in fluid succession one after the other while he poked his head just above the treetops. From a distance, it looked like he was just a hallucination of a slow-moving tree, or perhaps vines swaying softly in the breeze but never swaying in the opposite direction. Quiet feet guided him around, the various eyes littered across his body constantly scanning for any signs of nearby or far away movement; anything that attracted his attention; while he silently wandered. Gemini's ears pointed up at the sound of something unfamiliar, a haunting tune he had never heard. The cryptid slowly opened his mouth in response, revealing hidden claw-like pointed teeth and a thick, slimy tongue, letting out a high-pitched shrill that only animals and the lucky human was able to hear. Any and all nearby wildlife swiftly scattered in various directions; all of which away from the source of the sound- him. The shrill served more as a warning and a tale of caution, giving whatever was the source of the song's tune a chance to run off, or at least not come any closer.
It immediately heard the sound, perking up as it let out a gentle growl. It sounded like an angry cat, but it just trotted forward and towards his sounds. If he wanted to play that game, The Dove would *gladly* play along with him. It slowly moved close, scurrying up a tree before pulling it's sword out from under it's cloak. Curiosity had gotten the better of it, so it let it's eyes fizzle out in order to be more stealthy. Given, the pastel colors on it's outfit wasn't exactly [i helping] it hide, but it kinda looked like a bird anyway with it's mask. There was an uncomfortable silence now, The Dove sitting in wait silently before starting to let that same haunting tune shakily make it's way out of it's vocal chords. It wanted to lure Gemini to it, to see what Gemini was.
Gemini's ears stayed perked up, letting out a huff of air similar to that of a whale resurfacing the water for a breath of oxygen, his thick, almost detached tail slowly whipping behind him in displeasure. All of his eyes furiously scanned his environment now, dipping his head under the tree canopy to look around with the six sight orbs he had on his face. He wasn't pleased by the song whatsoever; this was [i his] territory, and nobody dared to set foot in it unless they [i wanted] to be gobbled up effortlessly. He was the creature who plagued the area, and he wasn't about to willingly share. Gemini opened his mouth once more, letting out the same skull-shocking shrill as before, but this time being a lot lower-pitched as if to display his genuine distaste from being bothered. Though, he was unable to communicate or speak any language further than animalistic noises as it wasn't something he picked up from others as he was never around people often. He [i ate] them, after all, so why bother communicating with them? The dragon-like creature took a few more slow steps forward, keeping his eyes scanning for any and all anomalies in his surroundings.
The Dove knew that it's cover wouldn't stay for long, narrowing it's eyes behind it's mask before hopping out of the tree it sat in. It perked out from behind the next tree then, staring at Gemini in wonder. The dimension filled with creatures this large was the most full The Dove had ever remembered being, the energy from that dimension being the energy it used to teleport to others. It narrowed it's eyes quietly, thinking to itself as it drummed it's fingers on the tree's bark. Luckily it could control the song and when it started, being silent and frozen in place in order to be hidden from the terrifying huge thing. Even this spree/serial killer had it's instincts, and this thing didn't strike The Dove as easy prey. It let out a gentle growl, gripping onto the bark and narrowing it's eyes in anger. It was still hungry, wanting to hop dimensions again. So many things had disappeared from this forest because of this little gremlin.
While Gemini didn't have the best hearing in the world; it was hard to hear things closer to the ground due to how tall he was, which made it worse; he had very keen eyes, and a whole bunch of them at that. They were littered across his body almost haphazardly, all of which able to absorb visual data and search the misty scenery around him as he ever so slowly treaded around, trying to keep his horns from getting caught in the branches slightly above the head he kept hidden just below them. It didn't take the cryptid very long at all to spot something oddly pastel within the trees; the birds there in the area were nowhere near as vibrant and colourful, only the flowers and leaves were. First, Gemini glanced it over as nothing, figuring it was one of those two aforementioned things, but it [i looked] closer to a bird than anything else, which drew his attention. He took a sidestep closer, the eyes looking around stuck to his side staring intensely at whatever it was, soon deeming it, in fact, not a bird, or a plant for that matter, soon letting out a guttural growl as he turned to face whatever it was partially hiding behind a tree.
It silently tilted it's head at the fact that Gemini had noticed it so quickly, moving closer slowly before skittering up a tree and hiding itself within the tree's branches. It let out a gentle growl as it crouched on the branch it stood on, panicking a bit when the branch broke and it fell out of the tree almost onto Gemini's snout. The Dove stood up quickly and caught it's mask before it could fall off, looking up at Gemini with a silent but curious look on it's face. It's eyes glimmered and glowed with clear malice, but at the same time, curiosity made it stay stock-still. Then, it held a hand to it's chest and began that eerie song once again, the haunting melody washing over him. It was a mournful song, one that seemed to tell the story of a child lost in dimensions of which it did not know. Of hunger and the struggle for survival, of the countless dimensions it's slaughtered just to find the one it used to call home.
