Pyotr arrived at the same underwater village, but from a completely different direction than Draven. There were Selkies about, but Pyotr sort of expected that, and they did not stop him as he went forward.
Tied to a statue, the three hostages were half-floating, bobbing about. They all appeared to unconscious, but otherwise unharmed, and there was obviously some sort of sorcery keeping them from drowning.
Pyotr was starting to realize he was running out of breath; he'd been underwater for over half an hour, and that was about the limit his dolphin form could take. So, using his razor-sharp teeth, he severed the rope used to tie Faina to the statue, and dragged her to the surface, trying to be gentle while also trying to hurry as his lungs burned for oxygen.
At long last, her surfaced, and his pink, rounded body quickly morphed back to his own, plain, tiny human one... but not before Faina would have woken and seen the form her boyfriend had taken. His curls, now sodden, were almost straight and reached down past his eyes, forcing him to flip his hair out of his face.
