As the sun began to peak over the horizon, stood Mononku looking out over the water with his spear in hand, yesterday he had gotten an order for twenty fish from a vendor in the market area. He stood there in the early morning air as he began his way down to the water. The water was a little colder than he was used to but he adapted fairly quickly as he stood there in the shallow water up to his thighs waiting. He waited there for ten minutes as the fish began to gather around, and that's when he lashed out his spear skewering a rather large one which he pulled out and took to shore, though this time he had a basket for the fish. He then left that area and repeated the process a couple time until he had already caught five by the time the sun was in the middle of the sky. Mon eventually went a little deeper to see if he could get some larger fish,and he was successful in catching two or so, but the fish seemed to be in a rather short supply lately, 'Probably that shark.' Mon thinks to himself as he walks back into the water. This process continues for another three hours with barley any fish appearing,as he brought his latest catch up to his basket, ' that makes thirteen.' he thought to himself as he began to go back into the water. This time he risked going into deeper water as he was waiting under the water as still as could be the fish began to gather, until they darted away suddenly. Mon felt a feeling of dread wash over him when this happened and immediately began swimming back to shore as fast as possible. Mon was maybe ten meters from shore when he heard the water behind him splash, however he didn't turn around as he kept swimming until he was on dry land once more. That's when he finally turned around to see what happened, there in the water was the triangular shaped dorsal fin of a shark. 'Well that's just peachy now I'm going to have to move my fishing else where for now. As he was grabbing his basket of fish and began to move he heard a splash again an looked back at the monstrous beast that was a little over average for that type of shark, the shark spanned seven meters in length and must of weighed close to 3628kgs. 'That things a monster' Mon thought as he made haste out of that area. After finding a new place about two miles away to fish at he made sure to be more cautious then earlier but he managed to finally catch all the fish without another incident, it only took 4 more hours he thought as he trekked back to the village with the basket of fish i his hands. Arriving back at the village Mon gave the large bucket of fish to the vendor he thanked him, after that Mon just wandered around the village the rest of the day.

As Mon woke up this morning he quickly got dressed and had a small breakfast and as he left he put his spear on his back, today he was determined would be the day he eliminated that shark that's been eating the fish out along the coast. He left his house and walked off towards the shore, as he arrived he began looking over the water, he knew this was dangerous and to some people stupid, but he felt he could do this. 'If I can't do this how will I be able to defend this village.' He thought to himself as he wades into the ocean and once it's deep enough he begins to swim until he's about a mile offshore. Out here he knew he was a sitting duck for any type of aggressive sea creature that was hungry enough but out here he knew the shark would be able to find him. Mon took a deep breath and dived under the waves and into the ocean below swimming down he takes his spear off his back until he's ten meters under the surface and waits. As fish begin to swim around him he stabs at one killing it, but also making it bleed Mon did this to attract the shark. As he waited Mon went back to the surface to replenish his lunges with fresh air. After reaching the surface and taking a gulp of air Mon dives back under to wait for the beast to show. Mon waited there having to resurface three times now and still no sign of the overgrown fish. Finally after another six dives Mon just swims back up to the shore to think of a different strategy. Eventually he decides to just fish up ten or twenty fish, so there he was catching fish after fish until he believed he had enough taking the fish he cut them up and smashed them into chum. taking this chum back out into the water he throws it out around the area and begins waiting again. He waited for twenty minutes when he spotted the dorsal fin of the beast appear out of the water going straight for the chum. Mon braced himself for the beast was moving quickly. Then all of a sudden the fin was gone Mon began to worry, he couldn't see the shark and now it had the element of surprise. That's when all of a sudden the beast leapt out of the water, devouring some of the chum as it did so. As Mon pulled his spear to the ready he swam back under the waves staring at the shark that finally noticed him. The shark swam at him and Mon barley managed to dodge the beasts attempt at biting him turning around Mon saw the beast turning to take another pass Mon once more barley managing to dodge. Mon turned around again this time the shark had stopped and was watching Mon as if daring him to move. 'I'm running out of air I need to surface soon.' He thought as he suddenly began shooting his way up to the surface. The shark began chasing him and as Mon surfaced the shark just barley missed him as it leapt into the air... and began to fall down onto Mon, who promptly dodged the beast if just barley. Mon swam back towards shore to try and get a little ground to put his feet on, the shark hot on his trail. Mon put more effort into swimming away when he finally got to shallow enough water. Mon turned around and as the shark closed in Mon side stepped and rammed his spear into the beasts side the beast shunted off the attack as it turned around and charge back Mon once more sidestepping and stabbing at the beast. However the shark did seem to have a brain and twisted its body just enough to avoid the attack. Mon lunged at the beast with an attempt of stabbing the beast in its rear. He succeeded in a slight flesh wound on the beasts tail. The shark turned and sped back to Mon its mouth wide open as Mon sidestepped and using one hand, rammed his spear through the sharks mouth. The beast swam a little farther past Mon toward the shore when it stopped moving, Mon smiled at being able to beat the beast but then winced as he looked at his arm to see a shark tooth wedged in it. He grabbed the tooth and looked at it, when he decided he would keep the tooth as a trophy of the beasts defeat. Mon went and grabbed the beast and pulled it towards the shore. Once he got it on shore he fell to the ground the exhaustion catching up to him, he looked at the shark and began wondering what he could charge for it. Putting that thought to the side he grabbed the shark by its tail and began dragging it very very slowly back to the village. When he finally reached the village after tugging the shark for four hours with numerous breaks here and there a group a vendors gathered around the beast. A vendor who sold fish asked how much he wanted for it and Mon gave him a rough estimate of what he was charging for it and after coming to an agreement Mon went home. When he entered his hut he placed the sharks tooth on the mantel as a sign of his first true conquest as a fisherman. 'First step towards proving that I can protect my home.' He thought as he went about making dinner and after that preparing a bath. He soaked in the bath for awhile taking his time and relaxing after his bath he went to his bed and slept for longer than normal not waking until mid day the next morning. He got up and went to work making his shark tooth into a shark tooth necklace.
