Etincelle 149 | Melanie 149


"It is decided then. Our group shall welcome our two newcomers." With that statement it was over, and Etincelle released a held breath. A smile crossed his maw with a puff, his body excited to finally have things calm down and no longer tense over the yelling. He looked to Mel, ready to share the positive energy with her, but the Ninetale's face hadn't changed from her prior neutral expression. Feeling his energy fade Etin wondered why she was not rejoicing as well, but when he noticed her legs had not moved at all from their stiff position.. he realized she voted against them. With his face falling completely flat he wanted to cry, to gasp and beg the fox for an explanation. They had spent time together, alone with the Pokemon, hell Melanie even defended them when the time came! He didn't understand, did that mean nothing, did she want them to perish? Hurt stabbed him hard in the bleeding heart, a feeling akin to betrayal coming over him as he realized he had no idea what the large fox had been thinking.

But.. his better judgement prevented him from making a scene, and following Faux's guidance he dropped the matter in favor of food. He may have just eaten and gotten rid of the gnawing pain in his belly but he was by no means sated. The very thought of eating would have made his stomach growl once again were it not for the nauseating emotions. After a brief hesitation he muttered to Melanie, "I'll get us some," and trotted off with hurried steps toward the new spoils. The packs of berries were impressive compared to the minuscule ones that had been leftover before, and they looked more appealing to boot. While he had planned to simple grab a stemful it seemed they had mostly been picked clean, and instead he opted to grab an entire stack by the leafy base. "Let's eat over there." He suggested to the others, signalling with a nudge of his eat to move closer to Melanie. It wouldn't do her well to be forced to move once again, and with that he dragged the large stack her way.

Melanie was not surprised by the turn of the vote but she was still curious as to the sway. Had anyone else voted against them? Had Cinder and Faux cast votes or were they not allowed? It didn't matter to her, almost painfully so, and she shuffled her tails over Arry a little more. "Are you still hungry, Arry?" She asked gently, a smile returning to her face. "There is plenty enough to share now." Her own stomach churned with hunger. Between the fighting, the digging, her typing, and her injury, the fox had used an obscene amount of energy in the past day. The meager meal she had earlier had quelled her belly but the hunger didn't cease.

But she made no mention of it. She had the luxury of eating already and was not so ungrateful as to ask for more. Not when they had a growing child who needed it. Not when she was already a foot in the grave.. If brought something, if Etin shared his food with her.. her stomach growled greedily, and she could not deny the hunger she felt. A shuffling noise made its way up to her and the huffs of Etincelle as he dragged something were unmistakable. "Alright Mel," he cooed at her while rolling something between her paws. "That's the biggest one I see, so be careful." The fox nearly bit her lip. She felt ungrateful, unworthy, and greedy as she bent her neck down to tear into the berry without a single word of refusal.

Arry's tummy was growling still as the need for yummy berries was getting more up there. "Are you still hungry, Arry?" Mel asked the Aron. Of course he's hungry. Though Arry did feel sad that Cinder snapped at him. He just didn't want to see the two get forced out and possibly die because of something happened that was beyond their control. Arry looked at some of the berries and they was all nice and plump for eating. "There is plenty enough to share now." Sharing was something that he was always taught and the fact he loved being around Mel made him happy. The Aron started eating the berries and they was filled with fruity juice that made it yummy. He did wonder what the two newcomers would do? Are they going to join them or do they hunt for their own food? Guess he'll find out at some point but right now its berry time.

As Arry was about to take another bite out of the Oran berry he seen Mel tear into the berry like so. He couldn't do that but then again, Mel has done a lot yesterday that she's pretty hungry. Arry finishes one berry and the next one was a berry he didn't like to much. Chesto berries are supposed to be good but Arry wasn't one to eat them since they just don't settle with his stomach to well. So he rolls it over to Mel to share with her. "Can I give you this berry Mel? It makes me feel funny and I get tummy aches from it." With that he rubs up against her leg with love then goes to get another berry to eat and the next one was a delicious pecha berry that had a very juicy taste. "Mmm, this is very yummy." Arry said as he enjoyed the taste.

Mathias sighs with relief as the was welcomed now but what Cinder said had Mathias worried about something else. Was she going to do and is she going to try to force him out? Faux did offer them something but Mathias has always hunted for his own food. It was just the way he has done things. However there is one thing for sure that he will get straight, he's not in league with his brother or anyone that would intimidate others. Yet one thing was for sure, he wasn't going to let the quilava push him around. Fire types like Mathias has always been like that and no Charizard or Quilava will make him bend to their will. Mathias respected Faux's offer but he had to decline the food offer. It was just something he has done.

Bastet wondered why Mathias would decline the offer of food when going out there isn't a real option especially if there is an undead looking for him. The Psychic type couldn't help but take the offer. Sorry Mathias. Its just to dangerous to go hunting right now. we should take them up on the offer. She went over and sat in a spot where she could enjoy the sunlight and look out the window. Even then she waited for Mathias to join her as usual. With her psychic powers she grabbed only enough berries to satisfy her and Mathias which was not a whole lot since Mathias had ways of making a berry taste better with his fire moves. "This is a lot of berries, I heard that every now and then, that there's a plentiful harvest when it comes to the right time of the year and with it a bunch of Sitrus berries grow not to far from here. At least that's what I heard from mine and Mathias' trainer when we was younger." If they could get to it safely and back, then it would be a bountiful meal. Though likely if they did go to find it, they'd have to be careful as they are pretty much close to a charizard clan's territory.

Mathias gave in and sat down. He oculdn't leave Bastet by herself to eat. Still he knows that he would have to tell Bastet why he's extremely nervous around this part of Johto. Are you going to tell me why your nervous Mathias or do I have to do what I did when we was kids which is getting you to talk. Don't make me give the eyes Mathias. The Charizard knew Bastet would do that and it gave him a slight chuckle but he'll tell her later on when things settle down. I'll tell you later Bastet, I promise. Right now we should try to help them out as much as we can. I kind of want to know what happened here and what that quilava meant by the demon that attacked them. It can't be my brother could it? The Charizard looked at the berries that Bastet got and realized some of them can be simmered with his flame just right to give its juices the best flavor. The others he usually eats them as is. Mathias grabbed one that he was most familiar with. It was a rawst berry. To him, normally uncoooked it tastes rather bland but normal for a rawst berry, but when its cooked it tastes more wonderful. So he puts the berry up to his maw and blows a little bit of fire to heat it up. He repeats it as he turns the berry until it goes around twice. "Its been a while since I had a rawst berry so here we go. The Charizard eats it and the taste fills his maw with delight. It hit the spot.

The both of them looked at Rebel and Miyu who reminded Bastet of a lot like them when they was younger. Guess they'll get better acquainted later.

To her relief it seemed the rest of the group had settled back down regardless of their personal influence. Let it be hunger or just fatigue and need to move on each Pokemon made their way over to eat in turn. With a shift of her head the fox surveyed their wrapped up collection of berries. A quick visual examination and mental division proved more than enough to share, though the once overflowing bounty now looked meager with three extra mouths to feed. Regardless, she unraveled a bundle without a hint of concern, and would have selected something were it not for Etincelle's light suggestion of, "Let's eat over there." She looked up just casually enough to catch his gesture, though his proposition of eating by Mel would be a surprise to no one.

Watching Etincelle drag off an entire set of berries the fox only grabbed what she could reasonably fit within her mouth and trotted over toward the others. Already the Electrike was working to feed the larger fox, though it was unclear if the gesture was necessary or considerate. Not being her place to comment Faux settled down and allowed herself the chance to finally eat. I mattered not if the berries were over or under-ripe, her growling stomach was simply thankful for a sound meal.

There was now a calm in the room, the tension finally dissipating, but the negative emotions had not fully left. The new pair, while not that far away from them, had decided to huddle together closer to the window and place a small distance between them. The fox tried not to give it much thought, but Cinder must have. She sat with her back turned to them, positioned away to make a sort of proximity triangle between the groups. Was she protesting being near her friends, or refusing to take her eyes off the other Pokemon? Whatever the thought, she did not speak, and kept her paws closed around the small pile of food she had taken for herself.

Cinder's flames were bright hot, yellow leaning to white as they burned, but she refused to move or bend to use them. Instead the Quilava took each berry in her teeth and seethed out a small roasting flame with each exhale. It grew and shrunk with her harsh breaths, her mind still struggling to cope with the new 'decision' that was made. The once starving Pokemon ate quickly, but had no appetite after her ordeals. There was an effort to make small talk but she had nothing to add. What would she say, they'd have more food without them, that a fruit boom would be necessary thanks to them? Her uneasy stomach hurt more, and she tried to ignore the chatter entirely as she shoveled berries into her mouth.

"This is a lot of berries. I heard that every now and then, that there's a plentiful harvest when it comes to the right time of the year and with it a bunch of Sitrus berries grow not to far from here. At least that's what I heard from our trainer when we were younger." The fox nodded thoughtfully, her eyes nearly closed as she added the information to memory. Sitrus were the most potent medicine the natural world had to offer, and a full harvest would be an indispensable boon. Yet the fox felt her muscles twitching beneath her pelt. You said you're from Pallet. It wasn't unheard of for trainers to travel different regions, but that tidbit felt like a home-region rumor. With another bite of food Faux did her best to ignore the contradiction. It was light conversation, trust building, and she would not question new friends for something so trivial.

"Sitrus would be most beneficial, but it'd be unwise to travel right now." The undead could still be lurking, waiting for them to reappear and strike again, but she had to wonder if it was real. Would the field be alive without human caretakers, had natives stripped it clean, had the year been good enough for a boom in production? The variables fluttered to her as she gave it more consideration, but it was her spoken words that brought an epiphany. Mel. The large fox was unfit for such a distance, and Etin's limp was not much better. She takes priority. As helpful as they could be the fox doubted berries would be enough; they had to find treatment here before all else. Yet.. should she mention it, should she share the dire conditions they faced? "Besides, we need to find stronger medical supplies first, and they would likely be somewhere nearby."

Munching lightly on the berries he had grabbed, and trading off to replenish the stack within Mel's reach, the small hound ate his second meal of the day. With the amount of grief his stomach was giving him to dig in it was hard not to think of it simply as a continuation of earlier rather than a new meal, but he simply forced himself to eat slowly to prolong the meal. As the others settled in their chosen locations he listened to the light conversation that tried to fill the space. "This is a lot of berries. I heard that every now and then, that there's a plentiful harvest when it comes to the right time of the year and with it a bunch of Sitrus berries grow not to far from here. At least that's what I heard from our trainer when we were younger."

"Berries were real common where I come from." The hound mused aloud as he recalled the many places he traveled. "People grew huge fields of them, flowers too! There were a few Sitrus fields but the types used in poffins were the most common for sure." Tamato, Magost, and Grepas came to mind, berries he knew well but weren't known for their medical miracles. Sitrus berries. The Electrike shuffled awkwardly, his own injuries giving a twinge of pain to remind him they existed. "I wouldn't mind digging into a heap of Sitrus berries." Another twinge hit him, this time reminding him of how much he had eaten in comparison to the others. A hot wash of shame flooded his snout, and he looked awkwardly at his paws while slowly gnawing on another berry.

"Sitrus would be most beneficial, but it'd be unwise to travel right now." Faux kindly but firmly shot down Bastet's small suggestion, leaving Melanie to wonder where she had been raised. Back home berries were common, but not nearly in the way they were here. Shrubs produced much fewer, and rarely were they eaten simply as substance. Other fruits filled in for meals, such as apples, and non-medical berries were rarely cultivated or cared about. As she shuffled a berry about with her nose Mel knew it was one such berry, one that would not be wasteful to eat for the calories, but before she could grab it a small voice pulled her muzzle away from it. "Can I give you this berry Mel? It makes me feel funny and I get tummy aches from it." 

"Of course," she coos, feeling the soft nudge of the berry and affection from the small Pokemon. Nosing both gently with a returned affection she instantly recognized the firm, almost dusty skin of a Chesto berry, and plucks the hard fruit between her teeth. Setting it between her paws for just a moment she smiled at Arry as he grabbed another berry. "Did you Chesto berries help keep you awake?" She asked, keeping her voice light as yet another berry explanation came to her lips. "They have spores all in them that help wake you up and keep you awake. They can be really helpful in the right situation." Gripping it in her teeth the fox bit down hard to crunch the super firm berry. It crumbled before her might, chunking more like a nut than a fruit as she chewed its dry flesh. Faded memories of spore filled jungles reminded her just how helpful they could be, but that was neither here or now, and she ate it silently.

"Besides, we need to find stronger medical supplies first, and they would likely be somewhere nearby." The fox continued, her words alluded to their coming engagements. With the tiniest shift of his head Etincelle looked at Melanies swollen leg. You're talking about that, aren't you. Melanie was not fit for a long distance, even looking for supplies would likely be a lot on her, but a foreboding feeling overcame the Electrike at the thought of remaining in this building once again while the others left. After what just happened he didn't want to let anyone out of his sight, and refused to be any sort of liability or dead weight. "Maybe we should make something.. preemptive? You know, to help with any movements and whatnot."
