Sirius had given a weak smile to the touch. He felt slighlty better sitting down but the moment he heard more footsteps, that pain would return. Making him wince before the familiar smell of others like him hi his nose. Sure enough, there they were. The Captain and some crew members stalked out of the brush, already a hand was on his shoulder and Sirius struggled to contain growl that the beast in him was wanting to make him do. That pain pulsed through his chest, a hand still clutching it.

"Gone...she left with the selkie.." Sirius replied, having to pause to get some more air.

Now he had to hope that Maria didn't come back out of the water so soon...and that he could somehow get out of this mess.

"Selkie... what selkie?" Ripper snarled as he pulled Sirius up. "Ya let 'er go? And for what?"

"He wants to make sure he's cured while the rest of us rot..." one sailor said.

Ripper's lips twisted into a sinister smile. "Is that so, doc? Ya think yer so slick?" Throwing Sirius across the ground, he turned to his men. "Go 'head 'n rough 'im up. But keep 'im breathin'. I'll go see if I can find our poor, lost lass."

Leaping into the water, he morphed into his monstrous form and began to scour the sea floor for any sign of Maria.

"Do I look....like I'm in any shape to fucking hold someone down?" Sirius growled out, feeling the pain in his chest.

Truth be told, he wasn't. Sure he could hold someone down if he used his inhuman strength but still. That would only cause him more pain and distress, make his wound worse due to the toxicity of the flower that had gotten in there. Course when the one sailor gave their own remark, Sirius gave a brief cough of a chuckle.

"I gave up on a cure, a long time ago..." Sirius retorted.

That didn't stop him from being thrown of course, and while only partially true, he had at one point given up on being free of this. Sitting on that island...living day after day with it. His human form further fading away from him...he had given up at that point. When Maria first showed up, he still had no hope of it.  He figured she'd just turn and leave knowing he was on that island and that Ripper could possibly arrive to check on him. Yet she didn't. And things had escalated from there. His belief in being cured was still low, terribly low. But he wasn't going to murder someone for it!

Hitting the ground, Sirius gasped out. Feeling his body seize up for a moment before he could feel the beast try to force itself to the surface fully. Growling out in pain and discomfort, he slowly pulled himself to his hands and knees. Deep breathes leaving him before he turned those yellow eyes at the others.

"Fuck off ya buggers." Sirius snarled.

As the crew members beat Sirius down, Ripper continued to swim about as he thought he caught Maria's scent.

Maria, on the other hand, had spotted Ripper and hid in the crevice of a rock. Watching him swim by, she stayed in place as he turned over a few boulders and shoved his head in a few crevices. She soon lost sight of him as she waited for a moment or so before attempting to slip out. A sharp gasp erupted from her as she felt something grab her tail. Turning her head, she saw a young dolphin tugging at it.

A few more gathered around her as she began to try and put some distance between her and Ripper, who was a ways out and turning more boulders over.

Sirius was unable to keep the beast down. As he was slammed into one of the larger rocks, a pained gasp left him and he felt the beast push itself to the surface. His muscles enlarged and pressed against shirt before a fist was thrown at the person in front of him. A feral snarl leaving him as his eyes were fully golden yellow and he sported the sharper fangs that were always dangerous. He was roughed up already but now he was fighting back as the beast kept gaining more control.

The punch had sent the crew member flying and claws grew at the end of his finger tips, a snarl left him as he snapped at the air toward the rest of them. A gesture that was often seen as a challenging and even taunting one. His hair stood on end before he rushed the nearest one, attempting to sink his teeth into them and rip em apart.

Maria continued to swim back to Sirius before Ripper spotted her tail and began to surge forward.

Making a wall, the dolphins began to conceal Maria and push her toward the surface.

When she broke the surface, Maria watched helplessly as Sirius threw a man across and snarled at the other. "Sirius!" she yelled.

"Oy, there she is!" one man cried.

She threw rocks at the men as she continued to yell Sirius' name and urge him to follow her back to the boat where she could throw some rope to a few dolphins.

Wolf ears sprouted to the familiar voice, perking as the man with a beast's mindset stood up straighter. Some part of this monster fueled moment recognized Maria's voice. However, it didn't follow it. Instead, Sirius slammed himself into the man that pointed her out, attempting to sink his fangs into them as they would roll across the sand. With blood that was his own but also his enemies on him, the intoxicating smell of blood had the man further pushed into the beast's mindset.

A pained snarl left him as he felt a cutless sword hit his back, causing the partially turned man to whirl around and try to get the crew member that had done the damage. Maria was going to have to do more than call his name to get the man to come to his senses.

Seeing Sirius continue his rampage as the crew members slashed at him and prodding him further, she pulled herself out of the water and rushed to him. She knew what she was about to do might end in more bloodshed, but it was worth a shot.

"Stop!" she cried, throwing herself on top of Sirius, making the crew hastily get each other to stop and stare at them.

She clutched onto his shoulders as she tried to search his gaze, tears welling in her eyes. "Go?"

Sirius snarled loudly as he whirled around as he felt someone grab onto his shoulders, he felt a weight on his back. Wolf tail bristling as he tried to see what it was. Course, with him looking over his shoulder Maria found his gaze. Her pleading eyes hitting those yellow ones consumed by a beast. As blood dripped from his mouth, Sirius took in fast breathes. The beast tempting him to grab Maria and throw hr off but he couldn't. Those yellow eyes widened slightly as they started to lose that color slightly.

"M...A..r.." Sirius started, though he closed his eyes and gritted his teeth, growling as he did.

A bloodied hand was placed against his face as he felt the beast fighting for control. The man staggered to the side, fighting to keep himself from going at the crew who were still here. The crew members were honestly surprised at this, blinking in shock. The doctor had indeed gone feral...yet the mermaid was trying to control him! Was she actually trying to use him and his curse as protection? Or was it something else.

The request to go, Sirius opened his eyes again. Pulling his hand away from his face. He felt his skin strain to keep the monster inside. His heart was pounding, the entire wound was burning from the previous full moon night. He took a step back, feeling the hairs growing out of his back under his shirt.

"I can't....urgh...the sea's too close....I'm losing...m...y grip...urrrgh.." Sirius tried to speak, though his words fell into a snarl as the battle for control pulled at him.

The man put his hands against the sides of his head, sharpened teeth growing longer as the beast hungered to hunt.

As the crew members fled, Maria pulled Sirius further from the water and toward the brush. "Calm..." she begged, pulling him along as best she could. "Please..."

It pained her to see him like this. Between seeing him attack and transform... it was too much. Continuing to pull him along, she sat in the thicket and wept. She felt so worthless! Sirius was trying so hard to pull himself together, and there was nothing she could do to help him...

The pull that his body was experiencing was in two places, the pull where Maria wanted him to go and the beast wanting out of him. The beast was determined to break free, being on a island with the enemy all around was driving it mad. It was making it so hard to keep it in. His heart ached as the wound he still sported pulsed. The remnants of the flower's poison caused it to hurt more. Maria's pulling did make him take a step backwards, followed by a second, and a third. Until he was merely staggering with her to the brush.

Taking a seat onto the ground, he took several deep breathes. Wincing as his muscles tenses before shrinking slightly. A growl escaped him as he finally started to gain some ground on his curse. Though he recalled one thing that made him uneasy.

"R..Ri..pper's...in the water..." He tried to warn her.

As they settled in the brush, Maria looked at Sirius as he seemed to get his curse under control. Her eyes widened when he told her that Ripper was in the water. She wouldn't doubt him for a second, but she didn't know how she could get Sirius back to the boat and have the dolphins pull them along so they could get to the sea witch.

Ripper continued to search the sea floor as he growled in frustration. It was bad enough that the doctor went rogue on him, and now he couldn't find the one thing that would help everyone with their curse. He began to make his way back to the surface, already in a more sour mood.

Maria placed a hand on Sirius's wound and let it be engulfed in her aura before watching the crew members gather around the water.

A few coughs left Sirius, mainly just him trying to get some air back into his lungs despite how his body felt. He let his fingers dig into the sand and starting layer of dirt under it as he sat there, sinking more to the ground as he felt his strength waning. Feeling the magic entering his chest, Sirius's body jerked as he couldn't keep the pained cry in. This made a couple of crew members look around to pinpoint where the cry came from.

Sirius took several pained breathes, shaking slightly as he raised a hand to grab a hold of Maria's. His body wasn't recovered enough for a almost shift andd while her magic was helping, his body was still in bad shape. He didn't try to move her hand or anything, he just merely tried to hold it. HE knew she was only trying to help and as much as his body was making it hurt, they had no other course to take.

"Go....R...Ripper won't be happy when he comes out...if we're both here, then there's no hope of fixing this mess." Sirius spoke in a low voice.

As he held her hand, Maria gave him a concerning look before he urged her to go. She shook her head before she sighed in defeat. There was no point in arguing with him, and she simply leaned in to kiss his cheek. She scurried off as Ripper reemerged from the water.

"Where that blasted doc be?" he roared.

"We..." One crew member said, his voice shaking. "The mermaid came back and we couldn't fight him off and..."

"Ye lost the mermaid?!" He grabbed the crew member by his shirt. "Ye need a reminder of what 'appens when ye disappoint me?"

"No, Cap'n! Please!" The crew member flailed about as Ripper pulled him back into the water, crimson pooling at the surface moments later.

As Ripper came back, he glared at the rest of his crew. "Anyone want to add to that?"

They all shook their heads.

"Good. Now head back to the ship! We need a better plan!" He glanced around to see if Sirius or Maria would show up, and he just stormed off. "We'll search 'ere again tomorrow."

The kiss was well received as he leaned in to return it. Releasing her hand, he watched her go before he started to rotate his position, trying to hide himself more in the brush while allowing for himself to see just what was going on. Ripper's display only confirmed it in his mind, they were losing their mind. Either that pearl was doing it or they were just going out of their mind due to the curse.

With the Captain and his crew leaving, Sirius mustered enough strength to go to the water. The smell of blood was all too tempting, he felt his stomach growling as he started to feel the need to eat. However he reached for the body that was there and pulled em to the shore. Checking to see if they were still alive or not.
