Something was amiss. Hide nor Kaneki wasn't around from what Plant said. There was no way that they could have just upped and vanished could they? Conan could only assumed they got lost and left them without saying goodbye. Even then they’ll meet again someday. For now its him, Alirah and Plant. Conan always wanted to have fun with Plant but this wasn’t the time. As it was, it did feel like it was about to rain and storm again. Thunderstorms did kind of scare Conan somewhat but nothing was more terrifying than the undead. If they came towards him, Alirah would protect him from the undead. Still, he had felt like Plant, feeling sad about losing someone. His mother and father who was bit by an undead.


Conan then thought about food. Breakfast would make things better and what better way than to eat with those who care. “Maybe they got lost out in the fog? They might come back if we make something yummy for them to return.” The Eevee said as he thought about his days back at the ranch. It always worked with him and his father, it should work for Kaneki and Hide.

Laverre City || Morning || Plant 73


Plant tried to get a hold of himself. He really did, but the tears kept flowing endlessly as his breath was overtaken by mucus. “No, not yet,” Alirah spoke with the sweetest voice, her words soothing despite the discomfort Plant was filled with. “I’m sure they’ll be along soon.” He couldn't pull his eyes away from the ground. Wringing his wrists Plant wondered, had they gone looking for him? Sure, he had been with Kaneki, but the Spectreon was nowhere to be seen when he awoke. The Umbreon wasn't blaming him.. but was it really his fault? Had Kaneki been searching and recruited Hide to help before losing their way? His small hands worked harder, his wrists starting to burn from the working. Where they out there now, calling his name in an empty city? Should he be searching and doing his part to bring them home? The Snivy practically chocked on his own spit. He didn't have the energy for that.

“We will go look for them once the fog lifts if they aren’t back by then, okay, you two?” Again, Ali exuded nothing but kindness, her words seeping into Plant's small bones as he tried to get his breathing under control. They were safe here. They were together. Once the sun burned off the fog they would go searching. Everything would be alright. With a couple of weak nods the child agreed. Wiping his eyes clear he mumbled a small, "Alright," before making his way back on to shaky feet. Taking in a deep breath he let it go with a rattling exhale. With several hard blinks he tried to will the tears away from his eyes and calm himself. Everything will be fine.

But what would happen until then? Picking his eyes off the floor his gaze immediately fell upon the nest of clothing he had slept in the night before. Verglas. Would it still smell like him? Plant staggered forward, the feeble hope too powerful to ignore, but his small steps brought a sudden and violent lightheaded spell. As he forced himself to calm down and walk in the present Plant's body caught up with his mind. After the whining, running, fighting, digging, crying, sobbing, and placating he was just so tired. Taking a fourth step he felt an overwhelming exhaustion and stopped step in his tracks. He had fallen asleep or something. Why was he so overly tired?

With his mind reeling he almost didn't hear Conan's suggestion. “They might come back if we make something yummy for them to return.” Food? His stomach was completely in knots; there was no way he could think about eating right now. Even with how drained he was the thought of eating made him more sick than hungry. I dont want food. He wanted to whine and cry again, but he was just too tired. He hadn't the energy to fight it, and instead just gingerly pointed to the pile of morels he had collected early. That seemed like so long ago now. "We could use those." He sighed, voice about as drained as he was. It wasn't much, but that meager offering was about all he could handle right now.

I’m sorry I can’t do more.

What a gift it would’ve been to take away all of someone’s pain. She would’ve given anything to have even the tiniest bit of that power, but instead she was doomed to watch others around her suffer while being able to contribute hardly anything.

She awed at the young Grass-type, seeming to steel himself mentally and force away his weeping. My god, what strength. She would be a blubbering mess right now and making zero effort to stop. Those growing up in the new world seemed to make resilience their norm, even as children. What choice do they have? So much suffering…

“They might come back if we make something yummy for them to return.” Conan piped up, bringing Ali’s attention to their surplus of food they’d gathered.
At least between the three, they wouldn’t have to venture for a long time to get food…
“Maybe so, Conan. Good idea,” she played along. She wasn’t willing to break it to the child that if their friends had disappeared and didn’t return, a meal probably wouldn’t be enough to solve whatever forced them away.
Plant gestured to the mushrooms collected in the floor. She could’ve laughed at the sweet memory of better times, only just hours before. Everyone was happy… ish. "We could use those." The Snivy said on a voice absolutely empty of energy and life.
She nodded at the suggestion. “We will. We just have to find a way to cook them now that Grim is gone,” Alirah sighed. “But that’s okay, just leave it to me. You two don’t have to worry about a thing.”

She could practically feel the pressure inherited to her now and it was crushing. She wasn’t sure she could protect herself, much less these two kids. But I will die before something takes them.

“We will. We just have to find a way to cook them now that Grim is gone.” Cook them. Cook them? Plant blinked his round eyes slow and thoughtfully. What did that mean? What was cook? He had heard that word before when Verglas talked about Oran 'brayed' but he had never seen one. They mentioned it earlier when they were getting foodstuffs, but his morels were all he really recognized from their spoils. Was it a plant or food thing, or did they need to leave them somewhere like when he dried grasses for his bedding? But they taste best fresh. Sure, dried mushrooms were good too but they never beat the fresh ones that were juicy and soft.

Whatever it was Alirah seemed sad about it. Her voice trailed, like this was something difficult. We needed Grim? What made him different, or able to do something they couldn't? Was it just the extra set of hands, or maybe having another big Pokemon around? Wringing his wrists again the Snivy truly did not understand. A feeling of loss slammed him again, fresh and pure as he was reminded Verglas was not by his side to explain all these foreign things. What was he supposed to do. What could he do? He didn't know these things and no longer had that comforting guiding hand to help him. “But that’s okay, just leave it to me. You two don’t have to worry about a thing.”

Ali. She said not to worry. She made him feel better when he only wanted to cry. She had done so much more than he deserved. It was almost familiar, almost akin to a feeling long lost, but the Snivy pushed that thought away for the present. Right now, he needed help. No one could replace Verglas but the Snivy was not capable of doing this on his own right now. Not yet, not so soon. Maybe, just maybe, he could ask her about the things he wanted to know. Maybe her kindness would help guide him until he could walk on his own. "Ali?" He started tensely, his small hands still working his wrists as he turned to face her for his question. "What is cook?" It felt silly, embarrassment burning under his scales. How long had it been since he was home? Back there, he did everything on his own. He cared for, fed, and just took care of himself. All these new things he was being exposed to, did he need them? What he use this knowledge? Curiosity said yes, but for the self-sufficient Pokemon it was humiliating to be so out of the loop.

She hadn’t realized until now how difficult this would be.

Without a source of fire, there was no way to heat up food. No way to warm the Boutique on the most unforgivingly cold nights. But wait— if she could make fire, how could she control it?! What if it got out of control and burnt down their shelter? What if the Boutique had to be reinforced again? She didn’t know how to do that! Where would she even get materials?

Her racing thoughts dizzied her in panic. She swayed a little but steeled herself just as quickly; she couldn’t let the two youngsters know how badly the adult was freaking out. Just take it one thing at a time… She took in a deep breath and let her eyes crawl across her surroundings. The Boutique is in good standing for the moment. As long as we don’t draw attention to ourselves, we should be pretty okay. As for the fire… that would take some ingenuity that she was too stressed to deal with right now.

"Ali?"

The soft voice made her jump, somehow in her thoughts she completely forgot she wasn’t alone. She turned to look at the tiny Grass-type, softly responding, “Yes, Plant?”
His small hands fidgeted awkwardly. "What is cook?"

She stared for a brief moment, taken aback by the sweetly innocent question. She hadn’t even considered the possibility of the children not knowing about the concept. “Well, most of the time it’s when people or Pokémon take a food item and warm it up, or sometimes make it colder. Some things taste a lot better when you do, or even become safe to eat when it wasn’t before,” she explained. “I guess it’s more of a human thing. I grew up with humans so it’s kinda like second nature for me.”

Where are you, Kaneki?

Conan got the last can of food and started making his way back to Alirah and Plant. Though one thing was on his mind. Where could Kaneki and Hide be? He wasn't sure if there was any other playmate other than Hide, but maybe Plant might come around to play with him when he's all happy again. For now it was food making time. With the last can now with the rest, now to see what Alirah is going to cook. In his mind it would be country cooking, but suppose city cooking would be okay as long as it doesn't taste like a burnt piece of toast. One thing did come to mind. How are they going to cook something without fire or a fire type pokemon? Oh bother, guess they'll just have to figure it out. If he was a flareon, then he would be able to make things nice and warm, but that was thinking to far ahead. Right now, he was going to be just him. "I got it Alirah. Whatcha gonna make?" Conan asked as he sat and looked at her with gleaming eyes that showed curiosity. His mouth was watering up as he was feeling really hungry for some food. Conan rememberd what his father said. A morning breakfast can get you started on a good day.Though the air itself though may look foggy, the morning sun did make things more cheery.
