Rhea had been dead asleep, but for how long she had no idea. She felt more rested than she should have which could only mean that Virgil let her sleep rather than cycle shifts. She could hear soft buzzing, like people talking, but to her sleep filled mind it was all just noise. She could sort of make out who it was by the tone. Rhea muttered to herself as her mind began to rouse her, and anyone listening might have heard something that sounded like 'pain in the ass' and something about 'cats'.
When the egg she had so carefully wrapped her tail and arm around began scratching she peeked one eye open to look at it. It wouldn't be much longer now, and her baby would be with them. She would have to work extra hard to keep her safe when the little one hatched, because a baby would be much harder to control than a simple egg. She snorted to herself, a little amused by the mental image. She only jerked fully awake when a horrific scream tore through the small cavern.
Everyone was on alert at once, and Rhea noticed she was the last to wake. Huh, she must have been more tired than she thought. Maybe Virgil wasn't such a pain for letting her sleep in. It was still irritating though. Everyone was staring at Arceus, was it her that screamed? How odd. The bug didn't seem the type. She listened to everyone chiming in and just kept her mouth shut, as she wasn't too sure what was going on anyway.
It wasn't until a bright light filled their small cave that got worried. Suddenly, from out of the pokeball the scorpion seemed to never let go of, another Pokemon appeared. The purple bug seemed just as shocked as everyone else when suddenly she said the name 'Fynne'. Rhea sighed and put one clawed hand on her forehead. This one was acting more childish than the actual kids in the group. Just what she needed, another mouth to feed and another back to watch. She grumbled to herself, shot the duo a look that said 'we'll talk later' and stepped out into the morning sun to stretch.
Tapping a claw on her egg she looked around. Everything was still standing so that was a good thing. No natural, or in the case of the undead, unnatural, disasters had struck. So what they all needed to do now was find some breakfast and get the hell moving. She didn't want to spend another night in this swamp. Rhea wanted to raise her child somewhere safe, and wide, and open. She missed her Safari Zone. The Kangaskhan turned to Virgil and motioned him over, digging into her pouch and offering him the berries she forgot to give him last night. "You need them more than I do right now," she told him. "We'll find breakfast on the way."
She turned to the rest of her little 'family' and cleared her throat. "Okay everyone, finish your introductions to the new kid and lets get the hell out of here. I am not hatching an egg in this place."
