Events

The biggest event of the season- of the year, even- is the Anniversary Fair, and it is here again! We have a scary story contest. Our plot events are still going strong.

Season

Autumn will be here until December. All of Terrene is cooling by degrees; those in Ashfield scarcely notice because it never truly gets cold there, though they will notice the decreased rains and humidity. Winds pick up, particularly in the southern areas. Ghost types are more common this season.

She felt so much more comfortable within the forest than she did in the city. She wished she could remember why. Maybe she'd done a lot of traveling before or something. With a shrug, she simply kept walking around. Surrey could get them both back to the city later, right?

Speaking of... The Surskit was skimming across the forest floor, barely seeming to touch the leaves that littered the ground. The two didn't have the greatest of relationships, given Makana's deafness, but they made it work. The hard part would come when they had to test it in battle.

Makana couldn't hear, and she could speak about as well as a two or three year old child because she hadn't liked going to speech therapy. She couldn't pronounce attacks like Fell Stinger and Bubble Beam. And trying to use signals wouldn't work unless Surrey was facing the girl's direction.

Maybe they could find some other way of communicating during a battle. Or maybe they wouldn't and Makana would have no choice but to leave the battle up to Surrey. They both knew they needed to figure it out.

Eyyyy, my child is finally exploring even if it was an accident he is going to start regretting very shortly

~Egg Count XX~

The afternoon sun felt warm even with the chill of the air and the cold breeze, a semi-paltry but well appreciated token of heat from the fiery orb burning in the sky and a distant reminder of the more pleasant temperatures of the season he had first remembered when he... well, arrived and could remember things. Since his life here in Ashfield.

Camped out once more on the ridge he had started to almost claim as his sanctuary outside the city and place of meditation, he had dusted off a place for himself—clearing away a patch of the thin layer of erstwhile snow that had managed to drift into the edge of the jungle—and was seated cross-legged, looking out over the large jungle town. His egg, as always, was with him, never leaving his sight, but he had finally, with some reluctance, managed to find a bag to hold it so it wasn't always occupying his hands, though still he kept his tunic bundled around it for extra safety measures and tried to leave the bag open so he could keep an eye on it even so. There was little chance anything would happen to it in the bag that he wouldn't notice or feel, but even still... better safe than sorry, especially with something as delicate as a pokemon egg.

With nothing else expected or laid out for the remaining afternoon hours and night, he had also taken the time and thought to grab his instrument as well. He... wanted to play it for others, and planned at least to share his music with Shadow and Angel if time and freedom allowed, but something kept him from being comfortable playing in town. It was... it felt... too personal? It didn't really make sense to him entirely, but... it was too private and intrinsic a part of him and required too much relaxation and peace for him to keep his fingers right when he was around other people. He got too nervous, started... thinking too much.

Not that he did much else up here on the ridge but think, but it was... a different kind of thinking. Here he had the time and patience to ponder things slowly, to work out multiple angles on things and resolve problems at his own pace. Here, he still looked for the answers, but he felt no expectation of needing necessarily to find any truths just at that moment. There was no one here to dissapoint or let down, and he could be at ease with his own thoughts for so long as he could feel comfortable being alone so close to the wilderness.

Indeed this was the farthest he ever went from Ashfield. It wasn't that he held a certain affection or fondness for Ashfield, if anything he was uncomfortable in the town, but there was safety in people and security in the human structures. There was no such thing in the wilds, and he harbored no small doubts that many wild pokemon would be all the happier for a lack of human invasion on their homes or interruptions in their hunting and life. They were intelligent creatures as well, and perhaps some nearer to the town even harbored grudges for human actions and antics. In the city at least he held less fear of being attacked and more hope for receiving assistance if he was.

Not that some people were any less intimidating than a wild creature, and indeed often times he was more scared of a person than he thought he could have been of a beast. At least the reasons and methods of feral creatures are often understandable and reasoned, but people had a whole different mind and way of thinking.

Ah, but what could he do? After, he himself was all too human.

All too human.

Brushing dust off the polished wood of his instrument, he tightened the strings of his rod and tuned it before setting it in place and beginning to play. It was a jaunty quick-tempo piece but the notes were actually pretty simple and the beat an easy one. He wasn't sure where he heard it or learned it, but it came to him and seemed appropriate for the sunny cheery afternoon, even if the season was a bit too dull and harsh the day itself was a bright one.

He could not have been playing long when his music seemed to attract a curious companion. A dove p-ish creature fluttered to a nearby branch, and catching the movement of wings, he turned his head to glance up at it, his playing pausing a moment as he took notice of his sudden audience aside from the silent little egg. It seemed puzzled by his cessation of playing and tilted his head at him, chirping. He felt a smile appear at the little bird's actions and whistled back at it. It trilled in its throat, a purr almost as its chest puffed out and it hopped further down to a low vine. His smile spread into a grin as he carefully shifted his instrument to set it beside him, lifting a hand out to it in an offering and sign of peace and cooed softly, mimicking the bird in a surprisingly practiced and familiar action. It cooed back, chirping and cocking its head the other way before fluttering off. His grin faltered a bit in dissapointment, but a moment later he heard the pale bird's voice from further in the emerald jungle. Did it want him to follow? He furrowed his brows slightly before rising to his feet, checking his egg quickly to make sure it was still snugly seated in his bag and taking up his instrument and rod in hand again. Sparing a moment to brush his coat and slacks off he followed cautiously but curiously after the bird.

He cooed and heard its reply again, the bird trilling further ahead. Picking up his pace a bit, he made to catch up with it, catching sight of the grey and white feathered avian once more. Grinning in almost childish joy, he whistled sweetly to it, and it fluttered down closer to him again, trilling a reply. Hopping down to a branch just mere fee in front of him, he marveled at the beautiful bird, it's white breasted plumage in the shape of a heart and its wide yellow eyes blinking at him in a simple adoring curiousity. Slowly extending his free blue-gloved hand towards it, it seemed to examine it carefully, wary at first then merely intrigued. It trilled endearingly and bobbed its head forward a moment before a crack in the underbrush startled it, a blue bird flying overhead. Startled from its perch, it took flight again in a rush of feathers, and worried he might lose track of it he tried to follow after it, blue eyes trying not to lose sight of it amidst the thick foliage as he worked to both move quickly and not stumble over the dense jumble of undergrowth and tangled roots.

Alas he did not notice just how far into the jungle he had gone, nor was he quick enough to catch that he wasn't the only person there, the noise of his own boots rustling the leaves covering up the softer sounds of a girl also moving at a much slower more casual pace, and with the cover of the jungle growth and his blue gaze distracted searching for the grey bird there was precious little time for him to notice her until he was already upon her and all but running over her, eyes widening as he realized there was another being there and twisting to try and avoid running into her while still keeping his footing, likely—if she also was not quite quick enough to notice his presence—still partially crashing into her or tripping one or both of them.

- Sirius -
Sirius both relished and hated when the human went to the ridge. On the one hand it was out of that Arceus cursed city and away from humans, in the relative nearby comfort of the jungle, but on the other it also put the egg at more risk. At least, from the human accidentally doing something or it getting lost track of if a wild pokemon or another beast child like the last came upon him.

Then again, the city itself was probably more a danger to that egg than the jungle could ever be, even with its predators. An egg might go unnoticed among the thriving flora, but a demon amidst the human settlements was never ignored and rarely overlooked or missed. There was not nearly as many convenient hiding places in their alien man structures, and no mercy among those who had been there any significant time.

No, it was better this way, and at least it gave him an excuse to hunt up a snack without leaving it too far away from him.

Slinking through the woods, he kept his ears pricked, the slight pattering of small pokemon' feet across the leaves and beating of wings all coming to his attention as he hungrily scanned the area with emerald eyes, jaws parted to take in the nearby scents. A taillow hiding up among the branches nibbling at the remains of what looked like used to be a very young caterpie caught his attention, and eyeing the distracted prey he slowly began the process of sneaking towards it, picking his way up the vines and trees with unsheathed claws until he was roughly level with his prey. Tail flicking, he slowly pulled himself closer, inching down a branch behind its back.

Closer...

Closer...

The branch had been eaten away at by bug types, and its sturdy appearance proved to have hollow bearings. It began to rip and buckle under him, and alerted by the sudden rustle of leaves and swaying of vines the blue flying type took off, startling another flying type away as well. Hissing, he lunged after it, claws raking empty air as he landed where it had been just moments before. Lashing his tail, Sirius narrowed his emerald eyes, glaring after it. Next one was his.

She didn't notice the man, but Surrey did. She jumped into Makana's line of sight to get her attention, and then out of it to get her to follow. But the girl's reaction was still just a bit too slow. She was caught by surprise as something ran into her, crying out in pain as she hit the ground. She stayed there a moment, mentally taking stock o her limbs to make sure nothing was injured, before rolling over and sitting on the ground, rolling her shoulder to try to work out the soreness.

I haven't even been here a whole week and I'm already going to be covered with bruises, she told herself with a sigh. She slowly stood, once again making sure her injuries only consisted of bruises, before she walked over to the man. Surrey appeared from behind a bush and glared at the man.

"And just what, exactly, were you trying to do? the Surskit demanded. "You could have hurt my human!" She had seen the collision and was just glad her girl wasn't hurt after all. But this man really needed a lesson in paying attention.

Angry tiny water bug is spooky

~Egg Count XX+ (XXI)~

Oh no!

Stumbling to keep his footing, he felt a flash of alarm as he ran into the other person, unable to change his direction in time without losing his balance entirely and risking flailing into them anyways. Fumbling, he managed just barely to avoid falling down himself, realizing in a panic that if he fell he might accidentally crush his egg or it might break upon hitting the bag.

But even his worry about the egg didn't stop him from flinching and feeling a terrible rush of guilt and worry when he heard the pained cry of surprise from the other person, a younger girl it sounded like. Oh gods, had he accidentally hurt her? He should have been paying more attention! Cursing himself mentally, he whipped around to try and make sure she was alright, concern and regret furrowing his brows. He was such an idiot, letting himself get distracted like that. The rational that it was a big jungle and the fact of their two paths crossing that exactly was such a rare probability that he could never had predicted it barely even crossed his mind, and all he could think was of how stupid and clumsy he was. And of whether or not he had injured her. Even if she was fine though he had still hurt her, and even for that alone he already felt terrible. Concerned over a bird... damn he felt so moronic.

"Es tut mir Leid, Es tut mir Leid, Ich am so sorry, bitte, forgife mir Ich didn't see—Ich didn't notice you. Bitte, Ich am so, so sorry, are you alright verpasst?" A rush of apologies immediately began spilling from him—half not even English and half thick with accent in his panic and rush—as he hurriedly tried to help her up, completely distraught with himself when he realized he had knocked her over, hesitating uncertainly as she got up on her own, worried gloved hands hovering awkwardly. He was such a useless oaf, such a dummkopf. Stupid, stupid, stupid. All he did was mess things up.

Wincing as he noticed the slight discoloration of dirt and scraped skin that would probably leave a bit of a bruise that marked her where she had landed, he jumped when the pokemon darted out of the bushes, the stick legged insect hissing furiously at him. Startled and surprised, he flinched, drawing into himself as he instinctively retreated a step from the angry creature, nearly tripping himself over a vine snaking under his feet in the process. Fumbling again to keep his balance, he warily watched the creature with confused and dejected blue eyes. "I'm s-s-sorry" He murmured, shrinking into himself a little bit further as he looked at the mess of a situation he had just created.

Why did he have to be so useless?

Why couldn't he just get something right?

While the two unfortunate humans fumbled and stumbled inelegantly through their initial interactions...

//I made contact. You are it.//

There was a giggle in response, and then a splurt. //Now you are it again!//

//You have changed the rules. You stated that thrown objects do not count to transfer "it."//

//Nuh-uh! I didn't throw anything... that was my spit. it's part of me, so it counts!!//

//I do not generate spit. You have an advantage.//

//Awww!

//Do not worry, I have not given up. I will continue playing this game.//

More giggles. In the trees just beyond the awkward human encounter, two Pokemon ran this way and that, their game of tag punctuated every now and again by a small cry or a giggle.

[A very short post to start out with. I hope you two don't mind~]

Makana tilted her head to the side, giving him a confused look. What was he saying? Maybe he was apologizing for running into her. The corners of her mouth turned up and she shook her head, offering a hand in greeting. Surrey looked up at Makana, who didn't seem hurt.

My name is Surrey, and my human is Makana, she said. Her ears don't work right, so she can't hear anything. She doesn't talk either." She went silent at the sounds coming from across the bushes and motioned for Makana to follow her. Surrey disappeared into the bushes and reappeared on the other side, where she could see the two Pokémon.

Hey, a Baltoy! Baltoy were Psychic types. It would be able to communicate with Makana! And then Makana emerged from the bushes and saw the two wild Pokémon playing together. Something about them was familiar, but she couldn't figure out what. Oh well. She looked down at Surrey, reaching for one of the two Pokeballs on her belt.

"We challenge you to a battle Baltoy! Surrey said, taking on an offensive stance. One on one!

He understands... absolutely nothing :D

~Egg Count XX+ (XXIV)~

Confusion crossed over the girl's features as he stumbled about and stammered out apologies. Her head tilted to the side curiously, examining him as he trailed off miserably. He must have seemed like a loon to her, tripping over everything and saying words half in gibberish. Some strange man running around in... in the jungle.... brows furrowed together nervously, a small worried frown crossed his features as he began to realize with a start what he had done and where he was. Timid cerulean eyes glancing about the pair's surroundings as he twisted to look all around, his hands—before hovering uncertainty to help the girl then half-way drawn up to his chest in a gesture of no harm when the stick-legged bug hissed at him—now began to slowly drop as he restlessly turned to peek over his shoulder and behind himself.

He couldn't tell where he had just come from. It all looked the same, thick ropy vines draping between gnarled twisting branches and plants with broad jagged leaves spreading across and covering large sections of the jungle floor, effectively covering any traces of his trail or tracks. He... he didn't know where he was.... he didn't know what direction was out and what direction would just put him further into the jungle... any and all of his bearings had been disoriented between crashing into the girl and fumbling about when he tried to back up.

He was lost.

Oh gods, he should have never gone into the jungle after that bird. He was so stupid sometimes... what was he supposed to do now? He didn't have anything to defend himself with, he didn't know how to find out where he was or how to get out, he didn't...

Quickly falling to pieces as he became more and more aware of the mistake he had just made, he felt desperate, ridiculous, and hopeless as he looked back at the girl. She had been shaking her head and now she offered her hand out to him—a proffered gesture of greeting he recognized instantly—her features almost cheery without any apparent signs of pain or anger or fear or even irritation. Questions bubbled within his mind—what was she doing out here? Did she know how to get to Ashfield again then, or was she lost and just wandering as well? Wasn't she... wasn't she mad at him? He wasn't even certain why the last one came up or why he had expected her to be upset, but the soft smile she offered him felt unexpected and confusing. Like he wasn't sure what he was supposed to do with her silent simple dismissal of his apologies and greeting. Brows drawn together uncertainly, he hesitated before accepting her offer of a handshake, though his half of it at least was decidedly weak and limp.

The water-bug creature had skittered out on its stalk-like legs, seeming to examine the girl briefly before turning to him, chattering something in its musical high-toned voice. He faltered at the insects trilling, unsure what to make of it without being able to understand what it was saying. Based off its furious hiss only moments before his first guess was it was likely lecturing him or ranting and him, but he couldn't tell what it was trying to tell him or what it wanted from him. Was it trying to tell him something? Was it trying to warn him to go away? He hesitated as the creature seemed to pause, freezing suddenly as if distracted by something else. Laughter and the chittering noise of pokemon drifted through the jungle from nearby, reaching his ears a moment later. He felt a tug of worry draw at him as he swallowed nervously, he didn't have any pokemon or weaponry on him or anything else of the like to help if they weren't friendly. But this girl didn't look like a fighter or a hunter either, so perhaps she would just...

The water bug made a gesture and disappeared heading towards the noises, and to his alarm a moment later the girl followed after without even the slightest hesitation. "Ah-h, v-vait!" His hand extended out after her, making a grasp at the empty air. Was she really going to go hunt out and look for the wild creatures? But that was dangerous, what if they attacked her? Could she even defend herself or fend off a feral pokemon if it did attack her? He stood there a moment dumbfounded and conflicted, staring at the space she had just disappeared into. Then with a pang of panic he realized if he lost her then he would be alone out here and quite possibly have just let his only chance of figuring out how to get back to town wander off and quite possibly get injured.

Giving chase, he caught up to her quickly, the girl and her companion having stopped now that they had found the source of the sounds. Two creatures, one tan with rust colored markings that seemed to hover above the earth without any legs of any sort, and the other a squat blue and green figure with a yellow duck-bill peeping under the great green disk that rested on its back. The two appeared to have been chasing each other moments prior, but as he watched the girl and her companion he realized the waterbug was taking up an aggressive stance as it called out to the two other creatures and the girl was reaching for one of the balls on her belt. "Vait... Ich... you're... you're not going to fight zem are you?" He... but... but why was she so eager to challenge them? He didn't understand it, wouldn't it be better to just leave them alone and avoid conflict? And... and what if her companion got injured? He...

A water bug suddenly burst out of the bushes at them, interrupting their play. //Hello!// The Lotad greeted, her eyes wide and friendly. //Want to pl...// As the human came into view, her eyes grew wider... and the friendliness was replaced with caution. //Um...//

The Baltoy hovered over to levitate beside her sibling. The Lotad leaned toward the genderless Pokemon, and they began a hushed conversation. The word human came up quite a bit. When the Surskit spoke again, both Pokemon turned to stare at her; the Baltoy with confusion and curiosity, the Lotad with confusion and indignation.

//Battle?//

//Um, NO. You're not going to fight my sister. She's just a baby.// The tone was indignant and final, though coming from such a small and young creature the words weren't very intimidating.

//I am not a baby.//

//You're barely not a baby. You were a baby just a little bit ago.//

The Baltoy seemed to acquiesce to that explanation. It then looked at the two humans, then at the Surskit. //Why would I want to fight you?//

As these conversations were happening, other Pokemon were wandering in the distance, off to the right of the nervous human, Judas. One, green and amphibian and nearly four feet tall, occasionally let out a squeaky call, like the sound of wet rubber rubbing against itself. It pushed through the foliage, moving casually, glancing about every now and again. The other, a hulking red crustacean of similar height but wider build, was a bit further away. It seemed to be looking down most of the time, following some trail in the moist dirt... but it, too, was coming steadily closer, and was moving at a quicker pace than the first was.

These two new Pokemon were approaching from such an angle that they were likely visible only to Judas; the trees and the man's form would block them from Makana's view, though perhaps Surrey would be able to hear the infrequent calls of the Lombre, were she not too distracted by her conversation with the Baltoy and the Lotad.

Makana didn't notice that Judas was saying anything. Not like she was ignoring him on purpose, of course. She did look over at him and tilted her head, then used her free hand to cover one ear, while raising one finger of the hand around the Pokeball and putting it in front of her lips, in the universal quiet sign. She was trying to tell him that she couldn't hear, but she knew it didn't have much of a chance of working.

"Because battles are fun!" Surrey said quickly, skating around on the leaves, every once in a while spinning in a circle. "You can battle against others and test your strength, and then you get stronger!" She suddenly froze, staring off toward the humans' right. Her eyes narrowed as she focused, but she wasn't sure what she was hearing. She may not be as young as the Baltoy, but she was still young. She didn't know everything that was in these woods. This new sound was something she didn't recognize.

The girl turned to him after a moment, tilting her head again as she peered at him. She raised one hand to her ear and a finger of her other to her lips. He fell silent instinctively at the second gesture, his voice dying off as he watched her with confusion, trying to figure out what the whole symbol meant and what she wanted out of him. Was she telling him to just be quiet? Was she trying to say he wasn't listening? To... to what, the interaction between the water-bug and the other two pokemon? He glanced over at them anxiously, but the three seemed to have fallen into conversing rather than launching into fighting, though the other two still didn't seem at ease with the insect creature. He... he couldn't understand what they were saying though...

The hand previously outstretched after her closed uncertainly, blue eyes returning to the girl and trying to search her expression with puzzlement and worry. Why... what... she coudln't understand them either could she? But why did she motion him with her hand over her ear? Did she just want him to let her listen to the water-bug as it skated back and forth before the other two pokemon? He... he bit his tongue lightly, realizing how foolish he must be being. She probably knew what she was doing better, she seemed comfortable and at ease, he... he must just be panicking... right? Just... just getting worked up for nothing. It would be fine, he was just... lost... out in the jungle with a young woman and her water-bug companion... and what did he have? An egg and an instrument, both fragile and useless for survival, one nested in a bag and the other simply tucked under his arm still. It would be fine though... it would be fine, he just needed to stop panicking....

He nearly leapt at the squeaky wet sound, head whipping around nervously to stare wide-eyed into the jungle. Glimpses of a green half-aquatic creature leisurely lumbering through the trees and foliage, eyes glancing around itself. And another figure, red shelled and larger in build, trudging heavily through the jungle, farther away but a lot more foreboding than the high voiced water critter.

And both were heading this way it looked. He swallowed dryly, taking a step back slowly, then another, glancing at the girl and her companion with desperation in his azure gaze. "S-somezing else is coming, can ve leave? Bitte?" His voice was soft but laced with a tinge of fear, he didn't know what resided in the jungle but chances were most were not the young playful critters arguing with the water-bug now.

The Lotad squinted her eyes suspiciously at the Surskit, her undeveloped instincts perhaps suspecting an ulterior motive. But she couldn't help herself; watching the water bug skate and slide and spin about made her giggle. //If you want fun, tag is fun! We were playing tag, want to join? I was winning, but you-// As the Surskit became distracted, the Lotad, too, heard something off in the distance. Taking a pose similar to the Surskit, she held quite still as she listened for the sound to repeat itself.

When the Lombre eventually gave another call, the Lotad hopped once in place with delight. //Mama! Here mama!// As the baby responded to the mother's call, the mother adjusted her course slightly and her gait gained purpose. She cast her eyes about, and as she made her way past some underbrush, her view became less obstructed: she spotted Makana and Judas.

With a quite unfriendly croak, the Lombre's casual waddle turned into an all-out sprinting waddle. She skidded to a dramatic halt between her two children and the humans, throwing mud everywhere as she turned to face the man and girl, puffing her chest out in a display of defiance. //Humans!// She squawked out the word, her tone making it fairly obvious even to the non-Pokemon beings that she was essentially cussing. //Phooey./// Then she spoke over her shoulder: //Haven't I told you to stay away from humans?//

//Well the Surskit got here first and wanted to battle and then the humans came and I was saying no we won't battle and then you got here and we never even talked to the humans.../// Lotad rambled off her excuse, but her words got quieter and quieter as she withered under her mother's no excuses, young lady look. The Lotad gave her Baltoy sister a sideways glance. //Hm.// Was the grunting response the brown construct gave.

At this point, the Lombre turned her fatal, withering gaze on the young Surskit. Her eyes narrowed slightly, and she waited.

And still the massive crustacean wandered, the distance between he and they closing ever so slowly.

Makana was startled by the other Pokémon that burst from the brush, taking a step back from the hostile gaze directed toward her. Surrey spat out a bit of mud that had gotten into its mouth. She started skating around on the leaves again, keeping closer to Makana this time. The girl allowed the Pokeball to shrink and put it back where it had been on her belt. She held her hands up, palms toward the Lombre, in an attempt to say that they hadn't meant any real harm. Obviously the bigger Pokémon was mad, but that was as much as she could figure out.

Surrey stopped in front of Makana and turned to face the other Pokémon again. "This is my human, Makana," she said quickly. "Her ears don't work right. I was thinkin' that a Psychic type Pokémon would be able to help her better than I can. She's not bad, she just can't hear."

Makana hoped that whatever Surrey was saying would help them get out of this situation. She knew Surrey was no match for the bigger Pokémon. The man had turned toward her and moved his lips, but Makana couldn't understand what he said. How could she figure out how to get him to understand?

Another squeaky call sounded from the distant green figure, and he felt his tension rising as neither the girl nor the waterbug so much as made a move to respond to his plea. Alarm flashed through his as one of the two other pokemon started made loud noises in response, wide blue gaze whipping around to stare at the jumping blue-green pokemon excitedly calling out for the wandering figure. His gaze snapped back to the other one just in time to see it notice them, the larger green-teal pokemon spotting him and the girl with shock and aggression. He managed to take a hurried step back, flinching away as it careened in between the two groups, his free arm instinctively raising to shield his face from the spray of mud that the pokemon sent showering over them as he turned his head away and shielded his instrument with his body.

Lowering his arm, he squinted past at the other pokemon, wincing as it angrily spat out a word in it's own language but fairly clearly directed towards him and the girl. If he had to guess, it was not very happy to see them out here. Which was fair, because he was not very happy to be out here himself. Shrinking submissively back from the defensive amphibian, he watched it with wide panicked eyes, half expecting the pokemon to lash out at them, to try and chase them off or attack them. Certainly it was clearly not at all friendly towards people and they had crossed some line with it already.

Then as it turned slightly to converse over its shoulder with the two smaller pokemon behind it, realization and a touch of dread came over him as he made the connection between the smaller squat blue pokemon and this larger greenish one. The defensive posture and the fact that it was pointedly between the strangers and the two smaller pokemon only furthered his guess. This was probably the parent, or a parent, of the green disked pokemon at least, if not it's tan companion as well.

And they had been dangerously close and possibly threatening it's child from it's point of view. Seeing the whole picture, he realized just how bad things could get if they gave off the wrong impression or set off the protective parent. But what to do? Just... Try to apologize, pray it understood them, and hope for the best? There wasn't much else to do was there? The waterbug was skidding back and forth again while saying something to the suspicious larger pokemon glaring it down and—trying to appear as meek' nonthreatening, and harmless as he could before the defensive creature—he tried to keep his eyes averted from meeting it's gaze lest he offend it while he softly apologized. "I-I'm sorry, v-ve meant your little v-vones no harm, bitte" He watched the other pokemon as carefully as he dared without catching it's eyes, thankfully directed at the waterbug for the moment anyways.

The squeaky searching call didn't go unnoticed, but Sirius had decided he would really rather not tangle with a lombre much stronger and tougher than him if there was no reason to. So he saw very little reason to try and find it, follow it, or be anywhere near it or where it was going at all. Life was simpler when you didn't go searching for unwanted trouble. And as long as he stayed up in the tree branches, high above the dangers of the forest floor, minded his own business, and continued searching for his lunch, then everything would generally be much better for him. Especially when it wasn't until it was almost directly below him that he noticed the giant lobster plodding through the jungle. He held still as it passed even though it's gaze was down at the ground beneath him, eyes narrowing suspiciously as he watched it. No, much better that he stayed high up here and minded his own business indeed. Tangling with that was definitely not high on his list of priorities. Not if he wanted to keep all his fur on at least.

//Well maybe you should keep your human from robbing the nests of- wait.// The Lombre's black eyes narrowed even further and her frown deepened, which hadn't seemed possible but she managed it somehow, conveying her increasing disapproval. She seemed to ignore the male human's speech altogether, focused entirely on the water bug. //This was your idea?// Disgust dripped from the creature's voice like a foul slime. //Abominable. Fellow Pokemon treating one another as tools to be used for the benefit of humans, just as the humans do. Phooey.// After the final word, she spat forcefully on the ground.

//My baby is not a translator you can just pluck off the ground and take with you.//

//I am not a baby.//

//Don't argue with me, Baltoy.//

//Why does she say I can help her human? I cannot fix human ears.//

The Lombre sighed loudly, obviously not desiring to have this conversation here and now. //Baltoy, as a species, have some psychic powers. You haven't developed yours yet, as you are still young.// At this revelation, the Baltoy fell silent, leaning to one side, supporting itself with an arm, and staring at the ground as it immersed itself deep into its own thoughts.

There was a beat of silence as everyone considered this revelation, but it was cut short as an unwelcome guest made an appearance.

The Lotad had, by chance, been glancing around herself, the current conversations making her feel quite awkward. She let out a tiny squeak of fear as she locked eyes with a hulking red beast that had just pushed through the underbrush. The giant crab widened its sunken eyes, opened its mouth ever so slightly and spoke in a croaking whisper: //Lunch.//

After the Crawdaunt's declaration, a flurry of activity began. The Lombre twisted and leapt, putting herself between the crab and her babies, and then with a hind leg she shoved the Lotad who was thusly encouraged to break out into a run. Baltoy hesitated only a moment before following its terrified sister. With a final frantic glance at the humans and the Surskit, the Lombre took off after her two young ones.

The Crawdaunt seemed to hesitate. To go after the bigger meal, or... go after the smaller meal that wasn't yet running away? He turned his gaze to the Surskit.

It seemed the humans had a second to react. Would they chase after the fleeing Lombre and her family? Run off in another direction? Somehow attempt to fight or frighten the Crawdaunt? Whatever they were going to do, they had to decide quick. There was no telling what the Crawdaunt was about to do, but he surely wouldn't hesitate for long.

Makana tilted her head to one side, having completely no idea what was going on between these Pokémon. Obviously something had gone wrong. And then, suddenly, everything was even worse. The Lombre ran off with the other two, and a huge red thing was staring at Surrey.

There was a second when Makana was caught up in all the movement, and then she reached down and snatched the Surskit up. She could tell at a glance that this thing was way too strong for them to deal with. And with her partner settled in one arm, she automatically grabbed the other person's wrist and began pulling him away from the big red thing in some random direction, partially hoping to divert its attention from the pair of younger Pokémon and partially just wanting to get away.

She still didn't know his name.

She tripped over a tree branch and stumbled, releasing the man's wrist in an effort to regain her balance. That happened pretty quick, and a few steps later she was running again. She glanced back to see if the Crawdaunt was still following, and finally slowed her pace a bit, barely winded from the run. She was glad that, whatever her life had been before, she'd apparently kept herself in pretty good shape. That was definitely an advantage out here.
