No, you are not. And it's nice to meet you. All of you.
Oh, uh, my name's Pablo. Nice to meet all of you guys, too. (Everyone introducing themselves makes me realize that I haven't properly introduced myself either.)
(I'm confused when I see this other creature swimming up to us. Wow, I'm seeing creatures I didn't even know existed!) Oh, hey, uh, no you aren't.
A Small tentacled creature emerges from the darkness. Hi. it says.
"Hello there, Helga says to the new arrival.
"Goodness, I can't believe how many friends I'm making now," she mutters to herself. "I should have left the hadalpelagic zone ages ago..."

A pregnant male seahorse scattles by.
Hey, has anyone seen my wife and husband. They're supposed to help me with my eggs.

I havenít seen any seahorses nearby.
Goddammit, they always leave me i'm closed. I wonder if i'm just a breeder to them.
Helga should hear a tiny voice coming from somewhere near her, but she can't place it exactly.
Um...excuse me? Sorry to be rude, but can you hear me?
"Huh?" Helga looks around, but doesn't see anything.
A tiny jellyfish detaches themself from a Helga.
"Um, hi...I'm really sorry about interrupting, but I wanted to make sure I was in the right place...what was that about a Mystic Grotto...?"

"Oh! Hello! We've all had this strange dream telling us to go there, now that we can swim anywhere."
Helga strokes the tiny jellyfish gently despite how massive her tentacles are. "Are you okay? How long have you been there? Even when I was running from that orca?"

"Well, that's odd" The squid replies.
I-I'm okay, thank you...my name is Alexis, or Alex. I've been there for a while...what's your name?
"I'm Helga. Nice to meet you, Alex."
Nice to meet you too...
Alexis looks somewhat happier, if still shy, before they realise something.
wait. You all had the dream too? I thought it was just me. I've been trying to forget about it, but I somehow can't...

Yes, all of us had the dream. Do you think we should go to Mystic Grotto?
"I think so," says Lancelot, "but I have no idea where that is. I've never even heard of that place before."
I... kind of forgot about that entirely. We should probably try to learn where it is before going there.
"Oh, yes," says Helga. She thinks for a minute.
"Hmmmm... Something about that place sounds familiar... somewhere in the Caribbean sea. There's some rhyme or riddle about where to find the tunnel leading to the grotto. Where are we now?"
(Man, being around the sea horse and especially the jellyfish is making me realize just how big I am...)
Uh...we aren't that far from the Caribbean, are we? (I ask, looking around. ...Well, observing my surroundings isn't going to help.) Are we? We're in the Atlantic, right?
"I don't know, I'm afraid. I've been in the deep sea all my life. But if no one else here knows, we could try asking around. If any of us can surface, we could ask a sea bird. They travel over the surface a lot, maybe they would know-"
"...Wait. I've lived in the deep sea my whole life. How do I know what they are...?"
I was wondering about that. Iíve never left the deep sea, mostly because up until a few days ago I would die if I tried that, but I still know what surface creatures are. Why?
Lancelot is surprised to hear this.
"The same thing happened to me. Not only can I swim freely anywhere now, but for some reason, I know about parts of the ocean that I've never been to."
"I'm not sure, why, but... for me, it seems to have started after I had that dream. I imagine it was the same for you guys?"
Yeah... (I realize. I didn't really think about it until now.) I guess the dreams made us...smarter, I guess? I wonder if my size won't get in the way anymore...
"Me too. Hmm, maybe one of us will know how to get to Mystic Grotto now. I'm thinking..."
