HEARTHOME CITY [SOUTH GATE]|EVENING|1
It had been a lazy, wonderful day. Earlier, when the sun was at its peak, Leto had even seen a flock of bird Pokemon flying peacefully as if the Epidemic didn't exist. There were no disturbances, meaning he had been granted some much-needed relaxation. During the intensity of the prior daylight, he had climbed the outstretched, welcoming limbs of a towering honey tree. Its branches swayed in the wind like a dance, and the sight of that made him absolutely giddy. Once his back was set firmly against the trunks' mighty girth, it was time for a nap. But now, night was beginning to rear its sleepy head (as Leto was), so, to put it simply, it was time to party.
It was going to be totally rad. "Ladies and gentlemen!"
Leto bellowed, his tiny arms outstretched as he addressed the imaginary crowd below him. "Have I got a song for YOU!"
He gripped his headphones and pressed them tightly to his ears, and when their position was secure and satisfactory, he cried, "Let's ROCK!"
He tapped his foot to the beat that was pulsing in his head. "A ONE, TWO, THREE, FOUR!"
The Servine spiraled around on his heels, striking a pose as he began his 'concert.' "I WANNA BE THE VERY BEST, THAT NO ONE EVER WAAAAAAS."
Leto attempted to clap his hands to his rhythm, but his limbs wouldn't reach, so he settled on hitting his sides instead. "DUN-DUN-DAH-DUN!"
As the performance continued, he felt his heart soar. There were noises in the background, but he ignored them. It was just the screaming of his many fans, right? He fantasized that Jennifer was down there too, and he knew that somewhere out there, she was listening. In spirit, at least. That's why he was here anyways--to search for her. She still was trodding on this Earth, he just knew it.
When it came time for the songs' climax, he scurried up towards the top of the tree. His legs firmly planted so he could stand safely, he was set to sing (or scream) the final score. He coughed to open his throat, then caterwauled, "POOKEEMOOO---"CRASH!
His head whirled in the direction of the noise, his wide eyes reddened with concerned. Something was wrong. A fair maiden was in trouble!
With the dexterity of an aristocrat, he scampered down the trees' length. Once he hit the ground with a dull thud, he turned to the 'crowd.' "Ah, don't be upset! Technical difficulties, friends! I'll be back to sign many autographs!"
He held up his hands in a mock salute, then he was off towards the source of the clamor--the neighboring town of Hearthome.
But he didn't have to go far. Right at the gate, of which still stood to beckon the visitors of times past, were some Pokemon. Like, a bunch. They were all encircled around a behemoth of a reptile...of whose species that Leto, surprisingly, didn't recognize. His lips were pulled up in a sly grin as he approached them with a slight skip in his pace. He loved meeting new survivors, and maybe they knew where Jennifer was! "Hiya, guys!"
he greeted with the smallest of waves from his flabby arms. "I'm Leto, nice to meet ya! Ciao!"
The Servine sashayed towards the center of the throng, where a rather attractive Lucario (of which he assumed was female due to the earring) was dabbing the big guy with some type of poultice. "Woooow, this guy sure took a beating. Is he uhhh...,"
he stretched his neck to inspect the wounds, and took a sharp intake of breath through clenched teeth. His heart lurched when he withdrew (as he recalled that his trusty headphones were no longer upon his head) and he frantically palmed his body until a finger tapped against them. During his brief sprint, they must have settled around his neck. He breathed a sigh of relief before continuing. "Yeeeowch. Well, at least he's still kickin'!"
He turned to the Lucario of which had caught his eye. "Hey, so uuh, how ya doin'? Need any help with that, ma'am? I could forage some more berries for ya, I saw some over there."
He jabbed a limp, leafy digit towards the route behind him.
[[OOC; okay first of all i'm super excited to return to this team. Secondly, once Leto realizes Polnareff is a boy, he'll back off and get really quiet and awkward. I thought I'd make him a kind of comic relief sort of thing, since I'm new to that.]
