„The octopus doesn’t swim fast enough to lose me. I am wearing swimming fins and goggles. As I get closer to the octopus I find it sitting on a medium low grass patch. With nothing else around, with no options to hide, I can interact with it. It changes its liquid body, giving itself intimidating poisonous looking horns. I swim around the octopus, observing it, as it watches me, judging my movement, judging for how much longer I will last underwater.“
