Seabed below Voya Nui – Two days before the arrival of the Toa Inika.
Kyrehx sat on a rock a few bio from her home, the underwater city of Mahri Nui. She and a Po-Matoran friend were tasked with observing the surrounding waters, just in case any possible danger could approach the once-great city.
“Tired yet?” asked the Po-Matoran with a slight smile as he walked through the sea floor.
“Yeah, tired of you, old friend.” Kyrehx replied, smiling back.
A mighty earthquake shook the seabed, the Ga-Matoran was knocked off the rock and was left staring at the heavens. The Po-Matoran was barely moved by the earthquake.
“What's the matter Kyrehx? It was just a bioquake.” the Po-Matoran said while laughing.
Kyrehx gave the Po-Matoran a look, and extended her hand to him.
“Just help me up you silly Kohlii-head,” Kyrehx said. “And let's move it before another quake hits!”
Just as the Po-Matoran helped his friend up to her feet, the pair heard a massive growl coming from the darkness of the ocean. A growl that both of the Matoran couldn't recognize.
“What was that?” asked Kyrehx.
“Uh, I'd like to believe that that bioquake was just the tip of the statue, sister,” the Po-Matoran muttered. “We better move quick and return to the city before--”
Before the Matoran could finish that sentence, out of the darkness a Giant Squid had appeared and started attacking the pair with its tentacles.
“A Giant Squid so close to the city? Sister, we have to warn the council!” the Po-Matoran yelled as he ducked under a tentacle.
Before Kyrehx could start running, the Giant Squid whipped one of its tentacles at the Ga-Matoran's direction. Before the tentacle could hit her, the Po-Matoran jumped and took the hit, protecting his friend.
Kyrehx walked to the fallen Matoran, as he helped him to his feet, she noticed his Kanohi mask was shattered to pieces. She gasped, and ducked to evade another tentacle.
“Brother, your mask... It's shattered!” the Ga-Matoran said.
“I know, I know,” the Po-Matoran replied. “Ugh. But I'm still active. Let's hurry back to the city.”
The two Matoran started running through the seabed back to their city. On the way, the two Matoran managed to distract the Giant Squid by going through a field of Airweed and concealing themselves from the beast. They were close to the entrance of Mahri Nui, only having five bio to run. The Po-Matoran grabbed his chest in pain, he had spent too much time without a Kanohi mask.
"Are you okay?" asked the Ga-Matoran.
The Po-Matoran nodded and ran to the entrance. As soon as Kyrehx stepped through the entrance, the Giant Squid attacked with its tentacles and caught the Po-Matoran's leg and started pulling the Matoran back to the ocean. Kyrehx quickly tried to free the Po-Matoran, but she was too weak.
“Sister... I don't think I'll make it through.” the Po-Matoran said with his last strength.
“Shut up, shut up! I won't let you go, brother!” Kyrehx replied while holding the Po-Matoran's hand.
The Giant Squid started growling and pulled with more strength. Kyrehx's hold on the Matoran wouldn't last much longer.
“It's okay,” the Po-Matoran muttered. “Just let me go, Kyrehx. I'll be okay. You know I don't go down that easily.”
Kyrehx's hand started to lose its grip on her friend's hand. Seeing his upcoming doom, the Po-Matoran muttered his last words.
“I'll see you soon, sister.”
As soon as the Po-Matoran finished that sentence, his chest light stopped shining and the Giant Squid whipped Kyrehx's hand, dragging her friend back to the depths of the ocean. Kyrehx couldn't help but stare how the ocean had claimed his life-long friend without any explanation why.
Kyrehx returned to the seabed where his friend met his demise. There, she found the shattered Kanohi Miru that he was wearing. While sobbing, she recovered all the shards of the Kanohi and left them inside a backpack. She stared to the depths, and wished that someday, the ocean would give her another chance to be with her friend.
