||Ambrette Hotel | Late Night [Raining]||
||7 | 7||
The smile that Yahto offered him was meant to be calming, Zuri knew, however his wariness and mistrust of strangers only got a narrowed gaze in response to the pleasant smile, snorting out a low huff of air that was a tad warmer than it needed to be. Eirlys had already mentioned his fire attack, and Zuri was not afraid to give the leafeon a very
personal feeling of those flaming teeth digging into his body if he did anything that threatened his charge's safety. Currently, it seemed like they were safe, but people could change like the snap of a person's fingers, Zuri was painfully aware of that from his work on the force.
He watched Yahto as the grass type looked up at him, recognising the look in in his eyes when fire was mentioned; he'd been burned before. Good. That means he'll be less likely to act out and do something stupid.
He thought, tail thumping against the ground with a low hum from the direyena. He wasn't interested in moving just yet, far too comfortable and the vibe in the hotel now that Dirk was gone was decidedly pleasant to relax in. The albino lowered his head to rest it against his paws, red and black eyes lidding slightly in content relaxation. At least Yahto seemed to know how to work with kids, that was a boon for Zuri.
Eirlys watched her brother briefly as he relaxed, giving the larger canine an excited smile, her tail wagging happily. If he was relaxing, that meant it was safe! That was great news for her, it meant she could also be relaxed, and that usually meant play time!“Wow, that’s really cool!”
Yahto's praise got an excited grin from Eirlys, and she eagerly shifted from one foot to the other on top of the ball she was using as her platform to stand on. “I bet your fire is super-duper strong!”
Her ears perked high, the still-floppy ends of them flapping about from the motion. She shook her head with a cheery giggle, one paw raised to cover her muzzle."Oh, no, no! I'm still learning to make them strong. Big brother's fire is so much stonger than mine is."
She said, hopping off the ball to pace backwards a little, planting her rear on the ground with a giggle, hind legs splayed out either side of her. "Zuri says the most important thing about fire is to make sure you can control it properly before making it strong. Having strong fire is useless if you can't control it."
She said, reciting the lessons Zuri had taught her over and over like she was the top student in a class.
She paused as Yahto stepped back a little bit, moving to get up to follow him briefly, but a short, gruff chuff from Zuri made her freeze, glancing over at him. The larger albino had risen to his feet again at the sight of Yahto's paw raising. There was a slight crackling sound from the direyena as his mouth opened briefly, the sparks of a fire fang building in his jaws. Still, he didn't follow through with the attack, slowly and carefully sitting back down once he was sure that Yahto wasn't about to put Eirlys in danger.“Watch this,”
Eirlys looked back over from Zuri in time to see all the pretty leaves appear in the air around him, flittering down to the ground like the worlds most extravagent confetti. Her mouth dropped over and she let out a long breath of awe, eyes wide in wonder. She understood that those pretty leaves could hurt a lot if they were commanded to, but they looked so pretty
! Surely Zuri wouldn't mind if he just went up to look, right? She glanced over at him, asking silently for permission“Pretty cool, right? That’s Magical Leaf!”
Zuri glanced over at Yahto as the leafeon summoned more of the enchanted leaves around him, eyes lidding slightly at his over exaggerated sneeze and fall over. He nodded to Eirlys once he was sure that it was safe, and she yipped happily, bouncing over to Yahto to look at all the pretty leaves everwhere, and to bat at a few of them."Wow! That was so cool, Yahto! I never knew that there were pretty moves like that! I've only ever seen Zuri's moves, and sometimes the moves of mean pokemon that try to attack us, but they aren't pretty like that!"
She praised, before pausing a moment with a giggle. "Well, the attacking pokemon's moves anyway. All of Zuri's moves that he uses are super pretty! Aren't they big bro?"
She said, before gasping and rushing over to him, pawing at Zuri's chest."You should show Yahto that super pretty dark shadowy one!"
She said, bouncing excitedly from one foot to another. Zuri blinked down at her, then looked over at Yahto after a moment, clearly tossing the idea up. Eirlys pouted a little, pawing at him again. "Come ooonnnn Zuri! Yahto showed off his super pretty move, now it's your turn!"
She reasoned, nodding her head. It was only fair after all! Maybe after this she could also show off one of her
pretty moves too!
Zuri made an exhasperated huff, but carefully stood up, trotting away from the two of them enough so that his attack wouldn't be a danger to either of them. Eirlys yipped happily and scurried over to Yahto to watch, planting herself into a sit right beside the leafeon. "Watch, watch! Big bro's cool shadowy attack always looks so cool when he uses it!"
She said, eyes wide with excitement. Zuri looked over at her with a good natured eye roll, before he sat down, closing his eyes.
Since he was only showing it off, he had no plans to actually put effort into the move, deciding to focus on making it flashy instead of actually useful. From where he sat, the shadows seemed to converge in on Zuri almost like they were living, taking on a deep purple color as they formed a mist that started to swirl and pulse around the albino's body. The dark pulse grew a little in size, spinning around Zuri like rings on a planet as they swirled and grew a little in size. Then, after a few seconds, it exploded outwards with various crescent shaped projectiles that fizzled out harmlessly before they even got close to Yahto and Eirlys.
Eirlys waited until he was done before excitedly running up to Zuri, bouncing around him with excited wiggling of her body. "See, see! Wasn't that cool? Big brother's moves always look so pretty! I usually cant watch him when he's being serious because he says its dangerous, but I love watching him practice whenever we're moving from place to place."
