Oliver felt some of the tightness in his chest loosen when Kaleo smiled at him, unable to help a little smile back at the way Kaleo smiled. "I am happy to see you, yes. And the storm should even out soon into just simple rain. Once the big noise is gone will you feel better? I would hate for you to be up all night..."

Oh, huh. He hadn't even thought of that.

"Uh- hm- y-yeah, I think so? I mean, it wouldn't be anything worth worrying about anyway- it's- not like this would be the first time." Pathetic, but true. Worrying about him because the thunder kept him up would be a waste of energy; they could spend that better in other places, anyway. "I-it'd be fine."

Oliver seems happier in his new spot, which Phobos is glad to see. This was much better than hearing his friend accidentally hurt himself because of that bed.

"I am happy to see you, yes. And the storm should even out soon into just simple rain. Once the big noise is gone will you feel better? I would hate for you to be up all night..."

Oh-that hadn't crossed his mind at all. Phobos thinks back to when he first met Oliver and Isolde, when they'd told him about 'sleep', that still-mysterious trance he only slightly understands. If he's remembering right, it's something corporeal Pokemon really need. Being up all night is his normal, but could it hurt Oliver? Kaleo's probably right to be worried... Phobos would hate it too if something bad happened. He doesn't know exactly what could happen, though; understanding non-ghosts is still hard.

"Uh- hm- y-yeah, I think so? I mean, it wouldn't be anything worth worrying about anyway- it's- not like this would be the first time." I'm already worried, though... "I-it'd be fine."

Phobos isn't sure it would actually be fine-he's way too familiar with pretending things are okay when they're not to believe that-but he knows better than to push the subject when Oliver is probably still feeling upset. If he made him feel even worse, he'd never forgive himself. "You can always talk with me if you can't sleep," Phobos points out, hoping he remembered the word correctly, "I'm always up anyway, so it wouldn't be any trouble for me at all."

If he's lucky, that will have sounded encouraging. Phobos knows enough about feeling like a burden; he doesn't want to make Oliver feel the same way.

"Uh- hm- y-yeah, I think so? I mean, it wouldn't be anything worth worrying about anyway- it's- not like this would be the first time." Kaleo's smile turned down into a worried frown at the deflection. Not being the first time meant that it wasn't impossible for him to be too scared to sleep. "I-it'd be fine."

The much larger donkey huffed nervously at the thought of Oliver being up all night by himself. Despite how anxious he was Kaleo knew his paranoia always exhausted him. No matter how hard he tried to stay up he always inevitably fell asleep and the thought of leaving the two smaller pokemon alone bothered him a great deal. "You can always talk with me if you can't sleep," Phobos offered while Kaleo was lost in his worry. "I'm always up anyway, so it wouldn't be any trouble for me at all."

Oh... That was right! Ghosts didn't sleep. Oliver wouldn't be alone if he passed out at some point and if he remained at the doorway to the closet he could still create a semi-effective barricade for the little guy to hide behind. It was the best they had at this point. "I can try to stay up until you fall asleep," he offered as well, his smile trying to come back. "But at my size I tend to need a lot of rest so I may fall asleep first. I'll wake up if you need me though."

"You can always talk with me if you can't sleep." Oliver blinked over at him in surprise. "I'm always up anyway, so it wouldn't be any trouble for me at all."

... That's right. Ghosts didn't really need to sleep. And not having much of a physical form at all, Phobos definitely didn't! Still...

"I can try to stay up until you fall asleep," Kaleo added. He was trying to smile. It was mostly working. "But at my size I tend to need a lot of rest so I may fall asleep first. I'll wake up if you need me though."

"That... that's really sweet of you," Oliver said, trying to look a little less like someone had just offered him a stash of his favorite berries. "But- um- won't you get bored, Phobos? There's gotta be more exciting stuff to do than staying with me all night! And I'd never wanna wake you up, Kaleo- especially after all that work you did today helping us with the... the grave."

Phobos doesn’t get why Kaleo would need more sleep than the others (why does his size change that? Corporeal stuff is confusing) but he still thinks it’s nice how both of them are trying to cheer up Oliver. He’s not used to that. His memories are full of him being kind so as to not make his family upset, but nobody had ever shown him the same feelings in return. Not until Phobos came across this place where humans used to live. He wonders if being as friendly as everyone he’s met here is... was normal.

There’s so much he just doesn’t know.

"That... that's really sweet of you," Oliver says, "But- um- won't you get bored, Phobos? There's gotta be more exciting stuff to do than staying with me all night! And I'd never wanna wake you up, Kaleo- especially after all that work you did today helping us with the... the grave."

Right. The grave. Phobos doesn’t want to think about it, certainly doesn’t want to remember all the confusing and awful things he found in the house. But... something about the way Oliver is talking doesn’t really sit well with him. Phobos can’t think of an exact reason, either, which is frustrating all on its own. Does he really want to be alone, but is too nice to say so? Or is he afraid of them secretly resenting him?

”I really don’t mind. I think it’d be fun to have someone to talk to! It’s..a little scary to be by yourself every night, honestly.” Oh. Phobos hadn’t meant to say that last bit. It probably sounded bad-the only good thing is, he didn’t mention Dei. ”I mean, um, if you want to be alone that’s okay too.”

"That... that's really sweet of you," Oliver replied kindly, the Chimchar's expression dancing around enough Kaleo had to try and puzzle out whether or not he was happy by the offer. "But- um- won't you get bored, Phobos? There's gotta be more exciting stuff to do than staying with me all night! And I'd never wanna wake you up, Kaleo- especially after all that work you did today helping us with the... the grave."

Grave? There was a grave? Kaleo's ears dipped back as he shifted position, front legs tucking under him as his back legs splayed out a bit to one side so he could shift his weight more comfortably. Usually he would sleep standing up but the last few weeks of their journey had been hard and he needed the rest for his joints. Plus he wanted to be able to see Oliver better. This news about a grave was troubling, however. How much trouble had found the little party before he and Akamu arrived? Perhaps if he simply sat and provided a supportive ear he would find out more. Prying was...rude. Among other things...

”I really don’t mind. I think it’d be fun to have someone to talk to! It’s..a little scary to be by yourself every night, honestly.” Phobos seemed to trip over his words but quickly picked them back up. ”I mean, um, if you want to be alone that’s okay too.”

"It is scary, sometimes," Kaleo agreed, looking over his two smaller companions. "Sometimes I can't even sleep if Akamu falls asleep first. Back home I would even have trouble sleeping if my brother wasn't with me and there weren't even monsters there. At least...not evil, dead ones. Now it's even scarier to be alone at night."

"I really don’t mind. I think it'd be fun to have someone to talk to! It's..a little scary to be by yourself every night, honestly." Oliver felt his heart break. Oh, he'd never thought of that! "I mean, um, if you want to be alone that’s okay too."

"It is scary, sometimes," Kaleo added. "Sometimes I can't even sleep if Akamu falls asleep first. Back home I would even have trouble sleeping if my brother wasn't with me and there weren't even monsters there. At least... not evil, dead ones. Now it's even scarier to be alone at night."

"I'm sorry Phobos; I'd- I'd never even considered you being scared all night!" Oh he felt awful. "I wish I could stay up with you all night every night! But I'll get sick if I do that and eventually crash anyway." His shoulders drooped. "And I- haven't exactly been sleeping well lately anyway so- I really need to- to get it where I can."

"It is scary, sometimes," Kaleo agrees, "Sometimes I can't even sleep if Akamu falls asleep first. Back home I would even have trouble sleeping if my brother wasn't with me and there weren't even monsters there. At least... not evil, dead ones. Now it's even scarier to be alone at night."

Even though he can’t understand their issues with sleep, Phobos is still grateful that someone understands. They all have their problems, but it’s nice not to be the only one who’s afraid. If only he could say that’s he scared of more than just the red-eyes. ”Yeah...I hate having to hide all the time.”

Whatever relief Phobos felt, though, is gone the second he realizes that Oliver is upset. He didn’t want that. He would never want that. "I'm sorry Phobos; I'd- I'd never even considered you being scared all night! I wish I could stay up with you all night every night! But I'll get sick if I do that and eventually crash anyway." That sounds bad. Phobos’ guilt only seems to increase in intensity the more he listens; it’s far worse than any curse Dei could ever inflict on him. If he hadn’t said as much as he did, this wouldn’t be a problem! "And I- haven't exactly been sleeping well lately anyway so- I really need to- to get it where I can."

He had to fix this. ”That’s okay, Oliver,” Phobos starts to say, trying not to mess up his own words because he knows if he sounds upset, it’ll just make things even worse. So he has to stay calm, somehow. Even if doing so is really hard. ”I‘m sorry too, if I made you feel bad. I didn’t mean to.“

As the other two apologized to one another Kaleo began to feel like a very large third wheel. Settling down he lay his head down on his foreleg and the ground, letting out a soft huff of exhaustion as his body attempted to relax. It had been such a long trip here and this was the first time he felt like he could rest, but Akamu wasn't here with him. He wasn't alone, thankfully but he missed the gentle pressure of the smaller pup pressed up against him like a physical reminder of the fact. Sleep would come eventually but the Mudbray wasn't sure if it would be sooner or later. At least the others were still up for now. Hopefully the conversation didn't die out before he was able to fall asleep.

((Sorry Kaleo isn't very talkative at the moment, it just feels weird to have him interject in anything going on so just went with a reaction post))

He had to fix this. ”That’s okay, Oliver,” said, and Oliver felt a clench in his gut at how his words sounded a little rough around the edges. ”I‘m sorry too, if I made you feel bad. I didn’t mean to.“

"No- no you didn't-" Oh no now he'd made Phobos actually upset, hadn't he!? He took a deep breath, trying to steady himself. "I just... wanted to let you know that I care? And um, that I wish I could keep you company all night, because you're really nice, and it's sad that someone as nice as you would have to spend the night alone when nights are so scary now."

He gave him an earnest look.

"I would if I could; that's a promise."

"No- no you didn't-I just... wanted to let you know that I care?”

As Oliver talks, Phobos understands he hadn’t done what he wanted, hadn’t kept him from worrying. He tried, but hiding feelings is... it’s not easy. He wishes it was, but it’s not.

”And um, that I wish I could keep you company all night, because you're really nice, and it's sad that someone as nice as you would have to spend the night alone when nights are so scary now."

Oliver looks at him, and Phobos can only describe his expression as serious.

"I would if I could; that's a promise."

He looks away, uncertain of what to feel other than shame. Phobos wants to say he believed what he was told, he did, he wants to accept that maybe there are others who like him. More than anything, really, because until the night he showed up here and met everyone nobody had ever really been nice to him. Nobody ever cared that he had been alone. It feels stupid to keep going back to that over and over again, but the more time Phobos spends here the more he realizes how the pain of being unwanted hurts even worse than the agony of Curse that Dei loved to use.

And for his entire life, until just barely even two days ago, he was always unwanted.

”Thank you,” Phobos says tentatively, unsure of where to go, hoping to not say anything wrong. ”I-I’m not used to anyone being kind to me. When you say I’m nice or that you want to talk with me, I just... don’t know what to think. I don’t know why anyone would ever want that. Not just you either, Oliver, everyone here. I don’t know if I’ll ever understand.”

”Thank you,” Phobos said, and his voice was way too small. The clenching feeling got worse. ”I-I’m not used to anyone being kind to me."

Oh.

"When you say I’m nice or that you want to talk with me, I just... don’t know what to think."

Oh.

"I don’t know why anyone would ever want that. Not just you either, Oliver, everyone here. I don’t know if I’ll ever understand.”

OH.

"Then we'll help you understand!" The words spilled out of his mouth from somewhere deep inside him. "We'll make sure you know every day that we want that, until you believe it! Even if it takes a lifetime! Because you are nice and you deserve to now it and- and believe it! R-right-"

He looked to Kaleo.

"Right Kaleo? If- if you guys stay, that is? But even if you're not staying you agree with the idea, right?"

"Then we'll help you understand!" Oliver exclaims almost as soon as Phobos is done speaking. He blinks, once again unsure how to react. "We'll make sure you know every day that we want that, until you believe it! Even if it takes a lifetime! Because you are nice and you deserve to now it and- and believe it! R-right-"

’Even if it takes a lifetime’? He should be nothing except happy, grateful even, but it’s doubt that wins out. Phobos wants to ask him what he means, if Oliver really believes what he’s saying. It almost seems too good to be true. Life has never been this kind to him before. Should he bring up Dei, maybe tell them that they might not be on his side if they knew the entire truth?

No, he’s smart enough to know now definitely isn’t the right time. Phobos doesn’t want everyone to hate him. Hearing someone say they thought he deserved to hear good things about himself... it felt nice. He wants to keep that as long as possible. Forever, a lifetime just like Oliver said, even if it meant never telling them about Dei.

"Right Kaleo? If- if you guys stay, that is? But even if you're not staying you agree with the idea, right?"

Hearing the name of their friend makes him realize how quiet Kaleo has been; he’d been too busy talking with Oliver and far too lost in his own thoughts to notice. Poor Kaleo... Phobos hopes the other Pokemon hasn’t been uncomfortable, or worried.

(n: so uh sorry for the abrupt ending, I tried to think of dialogue but Phobos wouldn’t want to talk over Kaleo. I’m sorry it’s not much to work with)

Kaleo had stayed silent after Phobos's confession, his heart breaking for the ghost type but unsure if it was his place to respond. He felt like an observer in the conversation and not actually part of it until little Oliver chimed in with his big heart pouring out through his words. "Then we'll help you understand! We'll make sure you know every day that we want that, until you believe it! Even if it takes a lifetime! Because you are nice and you deserve to now it and- and believe it! R-right-" His voice was so emotional yet confidant in a way that Kaleo both admired and envied. While they both had their fears Oliver didn't seem let his overshadow his compassion and Kaleo found himself completely drawn into the Chimchar's declaration.

"Right Kaleo? If- if you guys stay, that is? But even if you're not staying you agree with the idea, right?" He smiled as Oliver looked over to him and gave a slow nod. "I'm happy to keep talking to you all as long as we are here. It's not often we find people who are so kind and patient like you and Phobos. And...even if we leave... We'll make sure you can always remember that there are people who care. As long as that berry bush blooms it will be impossible to forget."

Kaleo smiled and Oliver felt a knot or two in his stomach loosen. "I'm happy to keep talking to you all as long as we are here. It's not often we find people who are so kind and patient like you and Phobos. And...even if we leave..."

Please don't leave.

"We'll make sure you can always remember that there are people who care. As long as that berry bush blooms it will be impossible to forget."

"Yeah," Oliver croaked, feeling something well up inside him. He wasn't sure what, but he knew he'd felt it with Anne before. "That... that's right. We all care and- and that bush proves it and always will. We got it together, all of us. And- and if you guys stay we can- we can do more things together."

He was going to make sure that bush survived no matter what.

The rush of emotions drained out like a tide, the feelings lingering but less overwhelming. Oliver could only guess it was sheer exhaustion, and it was with relief he noted that he hadn't heard thunder in awhile. "I th-think... I'm gonna try to sleep? While it's kind of quiet? You're um- you're welcome to stay here with me if you want?"

"I'm happy to keep talking to you all as long as we are here. It's not often we find people who are so kind and patient like you and Phobos.” Will I ever get used to being included like that? ”And...even if we leave... We'll make sure you can always remember that there are people who care. As long as that berry bush blooms it will be impossible to forget."

A reminder that people care... Phobos likes that thought. He has too many bad memories to count. Even though today wasn’t perfect, it would be nice to remember it anyway. After all, it’s his first day with others who are the closest thing he’s ever had to real friends.

"Yeah. That... that's right. We all care and- and that bush proves it and always will. We got it together, all of us. And- and if you guys stay we can- we can do more things together."

It’s kind of funny. The first time Phobos ever talked to them, he’d quarreled with Kaleo’s own brother. But here he is, hoping they both stay.

"I th-think... I'm gonna try to sleep? While it's kind of quiet? You're um- you're welcome to stay here with me if you want?"

Oliver does look a lot calmer now, doesn’t he? After seeing how scared he was earlier, that’s a relief. Yet Phobos can’t keep himself from feeling his own spike of dread. It’s the same fear Dei would cause any time they looked at him. Soon both of his companions would be asleep, and that meant another night by himself, watching for any sign of that horrible shadow...

But Phobos hasn’t forgotten what Oliver said, about corporeal Pokemon really needing their rest. That’s more important than him. Even if it’s hard to understand it, he would rather dissipate than hurt them just because he’s frightened. He’s a ghost, he shouldn’t be scared!

”I hope you guys sleep well,” Phobos says, though he wouldn’t know what sleeping well feels like. It sounds like a nice thing to tell them. ”I’ll stay here, if that’s okay.”

((Skipping Akamu)


"Yeah. That... that's right. We all care and- and that bush proves it and always will. We got it together, all of us. And- and if you guys stay we can- we can do more things together." Kaleo felt a small ball of warmth in his barrelled chest form as Oliver appreciated and agreed with his corny sentiment. His short, bristled tail swished lazily but happily across the dusty floor and the Mudbray tucked in on himself to keep from showing out loud how pleased he was. Very few times did he feel comfortable enough to be outwardly exuberant but especially around smaller Pokemon he had to be careful. He didn't want to hurt anyone with his heavy frame and clumsy hooves. Still...it was nice to be included and that made Kaleo so happy.

"I th-think... I'm gonna try to sleep? While it's kind of quiet? You're um- you're welcome to stay here with me if you want?"

”I hope you guys sleep well. I’ll stay here, if that’s okay.”

Kaleo looked at his two new companions and let out a small huff of contentment that resembled a tired sigh. He was more at ease in this little room than he had been in months, constantly moving from place to place and never trusting anything new because it could potentially kill or hurt them. Akamu was usually the one to pick up on such things and would keep them moving which meant neither of them got much actual rest. Today was full of rare luxuries it seemed.

"I'd be happy if you stayed," he agreed with a small, tired smile. "I don't sleep well when alone so the more the merrier. As long as you don't mind being a little bored once we've both nodded off."

”I hope you guys sleep well. I’ll stay here, if that’s okay.”

Bricks of exhaustion were hitting him one by one, and Oliver could tell if he didn't sleep it would grow into a headache. The weight of it was so heavy it took a moment to realize Phobos had spoken and by the time he did, Kaleo was already responding.

"I'd be happy if you stayed," the donkey assured their friend (friend, right?) with a tired smile. "I don't sleep well when alone so the more the merrier. As long as you don't mind being a little bored once we've both nodded off."

"Uh-huh," Oliver yawned, making sure to give the jittery ghost a smile of his own. It probably looked goofy and lopsided with fatigue, but okay, close enough. "It'd- be nice, even? To know someone's there watching over us?"

He was never one for meeting new people, but even so, he kind of hoped they'd run into another ghost soon. Phobos didn't deserve to be spending his nights alone. They don't need to sleep, but can they?

It wasn't worth pondering right this minute. He shifted in the closet to lay down, nesting in the blanket. He wished he could go get more, but this was good enough for tonight.

(Next round Oliver falls asleep and we proceed to morning, everyone! :D)

oh, ms. believer
my pretty sleeper
your twisted mind
is like snow on the road
your shaking shoulders
prove that it's colder
inside your head
than the winter of dead

(please skip me. I don’t have much for Phobos rn other than him agreeing to stay with the others)
