It's quiet in here -- to the point where a single drip of water echoes and magnifies, the sound whispering from its source and pinging off the old stone walls. A typhlosion lies in the room, not quite center but a bit off to the side; the slight movements of her flank shows that she is, at least, alive. The sound of slowly dripping water, echoing through the emptiness, is what wakes her up for the most part.
Her movements start slow -- brows and expression furrowing, she slowly wakes up, wondering what that sound is. Her paws scrape against the stone floor as she moves for purchase and pushes herself up gently, and eyes carefully open to see her surroundings. Her vision is blurred, at first, but it clears up in a few moments -- not that she's really looking at anything aesthetically pleasing. It's dark in here, and she can sort of see a stone wall. It matches with what she's feeling below her paws, at least. She has a bit of a raging headache -- Ugh, what did I eat last night? I feel like hell...
She rubs her eye gently, trying to get some of that fatigue out. It's still dark, so she focuses on her internal fire and feels the flames erupt from her neck ruff, feeling the warmth begin to lick across her fur and bring her warm. That's much better. Well, it's not like the fire made her surroundings look any better -- the typhlosion saw that she was somewhere made of grey stone, though considerably broken here and there -- lichen grew on the walls, and it was damp. Ew, she didn't really enjoy damp.
Slowly moving to stand up, the typhlosion tries to sort out her thoughts -- somehow, they felt particularly scrambled and she found it hard to focus on what she was doing, or where she was. Hopefully, walking around a little bit would help her to clear out her head, too. All right... Right, I'm Laurel, I evolved -- not that long ago, actually. BLITZ. Nessie. I'm in Sinnoh... -- I was just with everybody, where am I now --
Her thoughts are interrupted when she trips on something, stumbling forward a few steps. Her first thought was that she stumbled across a rock, and to internally scold herself to at least pay more attention to her surroundings... at least, until the softness of whatever she just tripped over registers in her mind. It... felt more like fur, than a rock.
She slowly turns around, and turns her eyes downwards to check on what the object was -- and, well, it's certainly the perfect size to be a rock. But peering closer, her neck flames illuminate it for her and -- shit it's a baby cyndaquil.
Good fucking job, Laurel, you're lost, disoriented, and you just stepped on a baby. Idiot.
"Oh -- hell -- are you okay? I'm so sorry, did I hurt you...?" she almost immediately asks, crouching down to the little thing; she lets her flames blaze up a little brighter to improve visibility too.
The cyndaquil wasn't really moving at first, either -- good Arceus help, Laurel hopes she didn't accidentally kill the thing by tripping on it. Seriously, it was probably too early in the morning [?] for her to be a Arceus damned murderer of her own species' babies. Or if it was already dead by the time Laurel accidentally fell over it -- well, somehow, that was kind of worse...
