Khans voice was gentle and soothing, trying to coax the cat out of her stressful stake. And it was working. "-Nothing is going to hurt you. I won't let them, I promise." Locking eyes with the Lucario, an icy calm drifted through her. Something about this Pokemon gave Arsi the sense he could be trusted. Something about him felt.. safe. His long limbs, strong legs, even the sound of his voice, reminded the cat of something she couldnt place a paw on. It was warming and joyful. "Not going to hurt me.." She echoed softly. "One of our friends got ... got lost in that storm. Haze and I are going to look for him. Would you like to come with us?" Arsi's eyes were stinging from the first friendly gesture a Pokemon had given her, or she had allowed one to give her, in such a long time. Tears threatened to roll down her face as she looked into the beaming security in Khan's eyes.
Taking a pawstep forward, the Meowth pressed the side of her face into Khans knees. "I dont wanna be alone anymore, I wanna be with Khan n Haze." Warmth was radiating off the Lucarios legs, flowing through Arsi until she was no longer trembling. My mind relaxed, allowing clear thought to process in the kitten."I'm certain that you will be able to help us." Glancing up, her eyes were sad but light, fluttering with a flicker of hope. You remind me.. of my (human) family.. Khan, was family. "Ill try my best, for you Khan." She would, if she could.
Taking a step back, she was light on her paws. The Lucario had stood up again, barking in irritation at the Kangaskhan. Her ears refused to listen to them, instead they picked up the faint sound of the wind and of the leaves as they rolled across the ground. Blankly she stared, a confused expression on her muzzle, as the images from the noise behind her flashed in her mind. Khan looked back at her, his eyes still showing that security Arsi had seen before, when Haze piped up at him. Something about ra-- bink! A raindrop landed straight on Arsi's nose, instantly drawing her lips back. The low hiss from the spare drops made her claws slowly unsheathe. Heart rate picking up again, this was not the place for her. Little brown paws screamed for her to let them dart away from shelter. Instead, she let them jumped slightly at each drop that hit her. Haze was leading Khan away, and the Meowth hustled after them. Khan wont leave me, he wont. He wont leave. I wont leave him he wont leave me... I wont leave him so he wont leave me. Rain cant get me. Rain cant get me. Rain wont get me. Khan wll protect us. Khan will protect me. Khan wont leave.. She repeated the words to herself, desperately trying to keep her fear levels down.
