((Was given permission to go ahead with the time skip since Akamu stayed up all night like a brat lol))
Pallet Town | DawnA - (38) / K-(46)
Akamu's whole body was stiff as he lay upon his perch at the window. Legs tucked tight to his sides, head low with only his eyes peaking over the window sill, there was little to give away he was even a living creature beyond the occasional slow swish of his tail. This was his favorite part of the evening. With barely even a breath or twitch of muscle to disturb the serenity of the quiet atmosphere the Rockruff watched patiently for the last twinkle of starlight to fade.
Darkness quickly covered all, even to his keen eyes.
With neither moon nor starlight left in the sky to light the way everything fell into dark shadow. It was both awe inspiring and terrifying, not knowing what was in the dark, but Akamu loved it. Seeing everything swallowed up by last shred of night before the sun crested over the horizon to bathe everything in a soft, orange and yellow glow was mystifying. He smiled softly to himself as the world seemed to pause during this moment in time and didn't move until finally he saw the creeping edge of light moving across the adjacent buildings. "Dawn then,"
he muttered softly to himself.
Yawning widely Akamu stretched and finally stood from his statue-like crouch and looked around. The house was still and quiet, much as it had been all night. Some time ago the chatter down the hall quieted down and everyone seemed to settle so he simply left everyone be. Isolde seemed content in her slumber as well so rather than wake her Akamu figured it was easier to do what he always did and stayed awake to keep watch of the perimeter. It was no different than his normal nightly routine so he didn't see the harm in letting the lady sleep but now that the sun was up his brain seemed to send a signal that he needed to get going.
Hopping down from his perch he strolled over to the moth and tilted his head curiously to study the female. Was she awake yet? "Isolde?"
he questioned softly. "It's morning. It's time to wake the others."
