I WILL KILL HER!"
A sharp something pierced the Rampardos' heart as the hound began to brutally slammed Bell against the ground. Bell-! He felt his hard exterior crack as he cringed instinctively, and he felt his hands clench in defeat. If he didn't back down right away, the little Poliwag would continue to be beaten before him, and he could do nothing. Seeing now that he was cornered, Braxton wasn't sure if he felt angry or just a smite sad. Last time he was given the choice of fight or flight, he had gone on a rampage, and it ended up with his beloved being killed in front of him. Huffing, the dinosaur tried his best not to charge forward and slam his tail against this monster -- red eyes dilated distrustfully as he looked at the innocent water type try to defend herself.
"We gave you the fuckin' chance to do this peacefully," he growled, though he caught his tongue and shook his head repeatedly. It was more than obvious that this fiend wanted power, and Braxton was more than willing to swallow his pride for the sake of Bell. He continued in a soother voice, "Look here, we ain't lookin' for trouble. Just let the poor lass go... please." He grumbled the last word, though he knew from experience that formality was always the best way to go. It honestly irked the Rampardos that he had to practically beg this monster, but heck, what could he do...! Arceus' sakes, I feel so useless!
Braxton tried to make eye contact with the tiny Poliwag, trying to express through his red eyes how hard he was trying to get to safety. Argh! Just a little ways away, that Jandrah and his Duskull companion were blocked by a Dragonair; he was too old to hear what they were speaking of, but he could tell from the offensive stance of the dragon that it was probably threatening. At the back of his mind, Braxton almost wished that they'd bring the disturbances over to the Houndoom, so that he'd have a reason to jump the fire type. Harumph! He just needed one sign of aggression from anyone else, and he'd have the green light to barge in himself. I'm too old for dis, bah!
