In the water, the Basculin were still hurtling insults and accusations at each other. “Well you dimwits started this whole mess!” the red leader said.
“We did not,” the blue leader said. “Your greedy ancestors kept trying to steal our pools away from our ancestors! So it’s really your fault.”
“No, your ancestors were trying to steal our waters from our ancestors since the town was founded!”
“Well you red maniacs have been trying to take over all waters since the beginnings of time!”
“There is no way that is possible, you wimps!”
There was a chorus of growls and hisses at that. “Okay, that’s it! We’re going to massacre the lot of you! Charge!” And both sides of the blue Basculin invasion force started fighting the red Basculin defensive force.
