Nikki smiled as he felt his friends shift and waken, nuzzling the otter's leg affectionately. He looked up with wide eyes happy and sparkling as Maudie ate a few of the berries before slipping back into a deep sleep. Worried, Nikki whimpered lightly before cuddling closer to his watery friends. He was feeling much better after his berry, though the acidic ink from the Tentacruel still stung his paws, and was sure that whatever Maro brought them would make them feel better. He just had to wait...they would be okay. Right...?
Both Nikkolai and Kegan jolted at the sound of Maro shouting the great Fearow's name, Nikki beginning to cry as he saw a brown blot plummeting from the sky. Kegan hushed the small fox and bid him to stay with his friends in the bed as the fire moth moved to the mouth of the cave, witnessing Maro's snarl as she set eyes on the wicked bird from his native region that seemed to be causing all of the trouble. "Keagan, do you think the children will be ok alone for the five minutes it will take me to get Fear in here and for you to kill that son-of-a-bitch that nearly killed them both?"
Kegan looked at Maro with new eyes, the ferocity of the female whom was normally so calm an interesting turn of events. "Let me deal with the birds, Miss Maro. Fear is the size of two of you, at the least, you may not have an easy time of it." Though he was sure that his words were falling on deaf ears. The level of protectiveness radiating off of her rivaled that of his own breeder when one of his his Pokemon was in danger. "...But if you think he can get here under some of his own power then you may be able to help him back. The boys should be safe here for a few minutes." Leaving the ghostly fox to her decision the Volcarona took to the air to challenge the beast of a Braviary that was currently circling his fallen prey.
The bird didn't see the moth coming as Kegan slammed into his side, stabbing him with his slim proboscis in a vicious Bug Bite. He was resistant to the attack, naturally, but it was really just an excuse to get close enough to blast his Flamethrower where the bird couldn't dodge. Breaking off from the territorial Valiant Pokemon Kegan began trying to draw him away from Fear, giving him time to get back to the cave where it was safe. He didn't want to kill the living bird, it wasn't his fault he was paranoid and territorial, he was scared. They all were. Yes he pulled a dick move and attacked another living but in his mental state he probably couldn't tell living from dead anymore. That didn't mean he deserved to die, no, that just meant Kegan had to lure him away from the others before ditching him.
