Plant hurried and moved, tossing and stacking every object that Conan passed him. Within a short time the boys had amassed a small defense fort that was just big enough for the two of them to hide within. It would do, he thought, as anything was better than being vulnerable to a flame. The lump of a fort was not the most stable structure in the world, especially considering the child was used to working with sturdy sticks and branches, but it was just sound enough to give him an idea. Gripping a shoe within its walls he pushed, sliding the sneaker over into softer material to reveal a tiny peep hole within their barrier. Tilting his eye to the hole Plant watched with an intense stare as the adults conversed.

"My name is Shadow. I'm from the Orre region." The fire Pokemon introduced himself calmly, but Plant only noticed the tension in Ali's stance. She wasn't relaxed at all, and Plant wondered why she hadn't chased the dragon away. She had come to get them.. did that mean she needed their help?! Plant's muscles weakened at the very idea of fighting the thing, but instead of an attack Ali smoothed her pelt and continued their little conversation with the same politeness she showed them. But why? It made no sense to Plant, leading to yet more confusion on her true feelings for the new Pokemon. His own faith in the fire type remained at zero, and as the pair continued he closed his little peep hole and turned to Conan. "Can't trust them," he whispered intensely to the nearby Eevee. "Its up to no good."

“No one their age should see the hell they have, and yet they continue…” Alirah said of the kids. Indeed that nobody their age should see the nightmare that has been unleashed upon the world, yet it was a reality. Only thing that this nightmare led was to death, destruction and more undead. Shadow couldn't tell her how many pokemon he knew that was in the desert that fell under the curse of undeath. It was painful enough that Agate fell to the undead but this place, it won't meet the same fate as Agate did. Though this town had some unusual feeling to it. As if it had an otherworldly aura to it. Either that or he was thinking about it. Regardless, it felt as if there was a lack of undead around and with that he could only assume ghost types was mostly the inhabitants now days. “So what brought you here, Shadow?” The most important question which is the one that needed to be asked. “This has been my home for a very long time. I guess that’s why I never left. Also I’m not nearly as mobile as one such as yourself.” Mobility was only to that of the mind's eye. Unless she means she's not as quick then that would make a difference.

Shadow could already tell that she is in dire need of help to keep the town safe as well as taking care of the kids, so that meant he'll stay and help. "I came here to seek shelter from the rain that was coming but I'm not sure where I am to be exact. This place is foreign to me to say the least. But I'll stay and help out as you need me to." The Charizard said as he really did have no idea where he is to be exact. This definitely didn't look like Orre at all. A loud crack of thunder rumbles as the storm was about to unleash its wrath upon the town and the area. This made Shadow jump a bit as he looked out the window. "Looks like it just got here." The Charizard said as the sky was looking awfully dark and it was ready to storm like crazy. The way it was though it was a slow mover for sure. Whatever the storm had though wasn't going to be a normal thunderstorm.

Thunder could be heard in the distance, approaching insistently and growing louder with each moment. The sounds from outside had died down to silence, with not even a subtle breeze to rustle the grass and trees.
The calm before the storm… She wondered how bad the weather was going to get, if the old boutique would stand against something as ferocious as mother nature’s wrath. And then her mind wandered to Kaneki and Hide. And Grimsley. Nisha. Gods, how many they had lost in such a short period of time… Please be okay…

"I came here to seek shelter from the rain that was coming but I'm not sure where I am to be exact. This place is foreign to me to say the least. But I'll stay and help out as you need me to."

She looked back to the stranger. The rain would typically be the least of her concerns with what lurked outside but as the flame on Shadow’s tail drew her attention, she quickly understood why rain would be a dire situation for him.
“It’s much appreciated, Shadow. You’re welcome to stay as long as you need.” She replied, with each word becoming less distracted as she pulled herself out of her mind. “Anyways, you’re in Laverre City, Kalos. I’m not sure where we are in regards to where you’re from, but I would assume it’s a great distance.” He mentioned it being foreign, and things only change more and more the further from home you get.

The once-subtle thunder was now attention stealing, rocking the boutique with its mighty roar. She admittedly spooked at the sound but kept her brave facade on the best she could. What would the children think if they saw her frightened? I can be brave for you.
"Looks like it just got here." Shadow noted of the storm.
She adjusted her body to a less rigid and more comfortable position and nodded briefly.

“The weather here is typically mild, a little damp. Severe weather isn’t unheard of, though.” She responded. “We might be in for a long night.”
She moved her eyes to the supplied rations in their home and then back to the fire type. Hands, fire… this guy was an angel in disguise. For just a moment, despite the cracking of thunder and the bright flashes of lightning bleeding into the barricaded windows, she felt more okay than she had in a while.

Conan was by Plant when the talking was going on. He seemed to not like fire types that well. "Can't trust them," Plant said to Conan. Maybe this fire type isn't friendly to kids but maybe he is, they aren't sure. "Its up to no good." What could the fire type want with them? Conan worried about Alirah but at the same time he started hearing thunder. Oh no, the storm was here and he didn't want to go out of their pillow fort at all. The Eevee curled up shaking a bit. This thunderstorm was scary. Even in the pillow fort, the lightning was able to flash through the tiny holes. He really didn't like thunderstorms but then he remembered what Plant said about thunder waking up the sleeping plants.

The Eevee stopped shaking to wonder what was being said next. "What are they doing now Plant? Is Alirah okay?" Conan asked as he was concerned that she might be scared of the guest or it could be a ghost making her scared. He looked at Plant hoping it wasn't a ghost. If anything, he did hope though that this guest wasn't hostile at all and it was just them being cautious of strangers.

OoC)) Conan takes Plant's advice.

Huddling in their makeshift shelter the Snivy wondered how long they could last. Would they be left alone, forgotten, or quickly bothered for this reason or that? They continued to talk in a very adult manner, quiet and calmly, but Plant was not fooled. Something devious was going to happen; he could feel it in his bones! Poking his snout even further through the small hole he narrowed his eyes into an intense glare. He would see it, he would know to warn Ali..

Outside there was a loud boom of thunder, and the bright flash of lightning was practically in the same moment. Surprised, the child pulled his snout back into their tiny fort and listened to the roar. The storm was moving quickly, and the chill in the air spoke of rain as well. How much would they get, would there be wind as well? Another boom spoke of harsh weather ready to burst, but the Snivy was not bothered by it. However, the noise was clearly bothering his companion as he shook and cowered beside him. "It can't get us in here." He soothed, placing a small hand on the wall of their shelter. "Not the wind nor the rain." The bright flash of light permeated their tiny fort, discrediting the small comfort he offered, but the Snivy showed no fear or unease.

Whether or not his sentiment had helped the Eevee tried talking of something else. Perhaps he was trying to take his mind off it, or was simply curious of what was beyond. "What are they doing now Plant? Is Alirah okay?" Taking another peak outside he looked at the others for any unruly behavior. Nothing stood out to him as suspicious. "Alirah is fine. Looks like they are still just talking." Backing away from the hole the Snivy offered Connan a chance to look himself, though the sight offered little change. Perhaps something else would be a better distraction? Tilting his head to the side Plant tried to think of something, anything really. He had been so out of it, so sick feeling and unwell that he had very few ideas. Try as he might only one thing came to mind. "Maybe food will help you relax."

The crack of thunder had sounded throughout the boutique that it made the smaller ornaments had shook a little. “The weather here is typically mild, a little damp. Severe weather isn’t unheard of, though.” The way it sounded though, it would be rather slow to leave. Shadow looked out the window with the wind blowing hard and it looked like it was getting stronger as well as the hail hitting the ground. “We might be in for a long night.” The way she sounded, it might just be a very long night. At least this is far better than Sandstorms and Dust storms. Those two types had made it hard for Shadow to get the sand or dirt out of the hard to reach spaces. Rain though, he can't really say he enjoys the rain like the other Charizard does. The Fire type almost forgot what the other Charizard's name was. Wasn't it Mathias? Shadow thought to himself. He wondered if Mathias was more used to the rain since he was from a mainland. Oh well, guess its something he'll have to ask later if he ever runs into Mathias again.

The Charizard yawned a bit since it was quite a confusing journey for him so far. He then wondered what the two young pokemon was doing? Seeing a pillow fort in the other room, they must be playing in it. Shadow decided to leave them be for now until they got used to him. There was one thing he did have to tell Alirah. Hopefully she'll understand that it was something that he was born with. "This is definitely different from what I see in Orre. There we see sandstorms and the sand is sometimes hard to get out of hard to reach scales. Also I must tell you something. If you see my eyes glow when its dark, its because I was born with it. I don't know why my eyes glow the way they do but its something that I accepted." Hopefully she understands and in all reality it doesn't give him any advantage as he still can't see well in the dark.

"This is definitely different from what I see in Orre. There we see sandstorms and the sand is sometimes hard to get out of hard to reach scales." Sandstorms, huh? That sounded like Orre made for difficulty living— deserts meant lack of water, hallucinations and death, right? At least that’s what she always saw on TV. Nonetheless, this guy seemed like he could hold his own exceptionally well and that was going to be a huge asset if she could win over his loyalty.
"Also I must tell you something. If you see my eyes glow when its dark, its because I was born with it. I don't know why my eyes glow the way they do but its something that I accepted."

She stared at the Charizard for a moment. The honestly was appreciated and earned the dragon points for avoiding her that panicked episode later… what did she say in response. Her mouth opened slightly to speak but she hesitated out of confusion. Finally, she sucked in a quick breath and replied: “Thank you for telling me.” She said politely. “I also was born a bit… out of the norm. So I understand you.” Well to an extent… It was lucky for her that when the dead started walking, they didn’t turn cotton candy pink with the bluest of eyes.

She motioned with her nose over to their spoils. “We have a lot of rations here if you’re hungry. The children and I were planning on making ourselves a meal actually. You’re welcome to join us.”

Conan looked out the peephole seeing both Alirah and the purple charizard talking still yet no fighting. She was calm and it meant that she wasn't afraid. "Maybe food will help you relax." Yeah, that would be great. His stomach was grumbling and he was truly wanting food. Maybe Alriah will cook the mac and cheese that she promised, but he was unsure of the stranger. The Eevee didn't want to go out there since it was storming. "Is there any candy?" Conan asked Plant. There was certain candy that Conan loved and hopefully there was plenty. He then looked out the peephole again and looked right at the charizard. Why was he purple and why was he not attacking? Is he not undead? There was so many questions. Conan moved out of the way for Plant to see.

Fitting his hands into his sweater pocket Plant fiddled with the cube inside. He was tired, hungry, and uncomfortable all around, but the feeling of turning the squares was cathartic and soothing. Sure, the Charizard hadn't done anything at this point, and he was being nice enough to Ali, but he just couldn't shake the fear it made him feel. It was so purple, but absolutely nothing like Verglas, and this fire starter hadn't stopped displaying its dangerous flame. Maybe if he asked nicely Alirah wou--- "Is there any candy?" Connan answered him with a question of his own. Plant's hands awkwardly finished a turn as he stared blankly at the Eevee. A what? What did he ask for, candy? What is that? Context was failing Plant, his mind reeling for what that could be. A type of bedding, something for spying or throwing? Nothing seemed right, but even considering what he said before barely helped. A food thing..?

With a deep breath Plant forced his expression to soften. "Maybe." Was all he could say, as he truly had no idea. "We should ask Ali." His stomach churned at the idea of both leaving their fort and approaching the Charizard, but Conan still seemed upset from the storm and Plant didn't want to make it any worse. With a second deep inhale and a wave of his tiny hand he motioned for Conan to follow, crept out from their shelter, and carefully made his way toward the other two Pokemon. As his hands bundled before him, as though they were a tiny shield, Plant took in a sharp gasp to ask his question but felt it die on his lips as he stared at the burning flame on the Charizard's tail. It flickered, teasing him and making the wounded scales on his side itch furiously at the memory. No. With a hard, tense blink Plant scrunched up his face and forced the memory to go away. He was supposed to be.. brave...

"Ali, what is candy?" He asked in a pitiful voice, the fear of the flame refusing to leave him entirely. "Conan wants some." He blurted out quickly as though the words were the only things allowing him to be so close to the Charizard. His small hands started to tense up, making and releasing small fists as he desperately searched for more to say. He looked away from the others, his courage already starting to wane. "I-I think food would make him feel better.. it would help him forget about the thunder.."

Looks like Alirah had understood all to well and that would make it easier for Shadow to keep everyone calm without getting hurt in the process. “We have a lot of rations here if you’re hungry. The children and I were planning on making ourselves a meal actually. You’re welcome to join us.” That was really nice of her. He hasn't had much to eat in a while other than living off berries that he could find that wasn't rotted. However before he was able to say anything one of the other children come out. It was the snivy that hissed at him earlier. Was he that scared of charizards? Whatever the reason was, Shadow would certainly not let anything happen to him or the eevee. "I-I think food would make him feel better.. it would help him forget about the thunder.." The thunder was quite loud and the storm was certainly getting more intense. Not to mention the sounds of hail hitting the windows and walls around them.

Shadow looked at the Snivy then spoke. "Don't be afraid of me, I won't hurt you. Candy is well, um, huh, they're sugary and um, round." At least that's what he could remember but not all candy was like that since there was also chocolate and other shaped candy. Mostly, humans had carried candy almost all the time and as such pokemon are given candy exceptionally rarely because it could make them very hyper. The Charizard remembered that time when he was younger and had candy. To him, time was slower than him during that point but now he just doesn't touch the stuff. A very loud crack of thunder crashes and it sounded like a cannon being fired off. It even made Shadow jump a little. "That was loud. Well I'd be honored to join you for a meal." Shadow said as he finally sat down. Before he could let the snivy be on his way he had to ask him for his name. "Hey kid, what's your name?"
