Coco silently fumed from inside, though she kept a neutral face on the outside. Though it's just a matter of time until that blasted Gardevoir gets the best of me...! How dare the psychic probe past her facade, past her mental walls and seek out the truth! If there was one thing that the Starly detested, it was when someone intruded on someone's past other than their own. Although she was a thief and a liar, even Coco didn't go into another person's history unless they wanted to. And even then she didn't enjoy that; it was another thing to weigh her down to one area when she could otherwise be off leeching off someone else. Flapping her wings to gain more elevation, the starling probed the outskirts of the Dreamyard busily, looking at the path that would lead to Striaton City. Of course, Coco could have easily gone ahead of everyone else and gotten a head start on the loot, but at the same time she would be exposing herself. Best let the coward croc be the leader and pick up his scraps.
Landing on the grass just outside of the Dreamyard, Coco played with her silver spoon quietly, the sun creating a sheen on its shiny surface. Heh. A small chuckle escaped her before she knew it, but for once the Starly didn't feel as if she needed to hide anything. At the moment, she stared at the spoon, hating how her siblings had tricked her but feeling smug that she was most likely the only one of the brood to survive up to this point. How superior she felt as she imagined how starvation or loneliness must have cornered her brothers, or how harsh reality must have been to the unprepared chicks that her sisters were! Almost sadistic in her joy, Coco preened her chest feathers quietly, a small smile gracing her features. So what if the humans at the Orphanage had called her 'corrupted'? Or if the other Pokemon in that wretched place called her a loner and an ass? Here that same corrupted Starly stood, alive and much better than whatever they could have coped with during these times.
"We ought to get a move on..." She murmured, now wanting to find something more filling in her stomach - with that Druddigon and the recently murdered Natalie, Coco's stomach felt just about as empty as it had a few hours ago. The Starly cocked her head, turning her body to seek out the others. If I didn't let others ruin me, then neither should the Gardevoir. With a satisfied nod to herself, Coco called out loud and clear to the others. "Let's head out now, please?"
