||Ambrette Hotel | Late Night [Raining]||
||1 | 1||
It was still fucking raining.

The white horned canine sat at the window to the hotel, his tail curled neatly around his paws as he watched the skies outside with a thinned glare. Both ears were perked high as he listened to the sound of water pounding on their shelter, briefly twisting back to listen to his charge let out an excited giggle as she ran up and down the long-abandoned halls. Slowly, the old police dog's gaze followed where he was listening, watching the puppy race back and forth with a long, exhausted sigh. There wasn't much he could do in this case... it'd been raining since they arrived here, and sitting waiting for it to calm obviously wasn't going to happen any time soon.

Zuri trotted back over to where he'd set up a bed from old forgotten coats and blankets, curling around with a heafty breath out as he settled back down to rest. Eirlys was still running back and forth to run herself out, leaving Zuri to settle and watch from where he decided to wait. After a few more passes of the excitable puppy running back and forth, she skidded to a halt in front of her guardian, pawing at his nose and horns.

The direyena jolted his head up with a snort, before his red eyes looekd down at her, eyes lidding a hair. "Yes, Eir'? Is there something I may assist you with?" He sighed out, getting a soft giggle from the houndrunt as she attempted to rear up and swat at the older canine's nose again, though she found herself too short to actually reach, especially when he tipped his head higher to stay out of her reach. She sat down heavily with her hind legs resting lazily on the ground as she instead tapped her paws against the tops of Zuri's.

"I'm bored, big brother. Can't you play with me a little? There's nothing to do here... can we go outside?" She asked, whining softly at the end of her question and cocking her head up at him. Zuri huffed softly and stood again with a low grump of protest, trotting himself over to a ball they'd dragged out of one of the rooms upstairs. He swatted at it to roll the ball down the hallway, getting an excited giggle as Eirlys ran after it to bat it back over to the direyena.

"We can't go outside just yet, Eir'. It's pouring rain out there, you'll get sick. We're stuck in here for now, okay? Don't worry... as soon as there's a little break in this rain, we can go outside, okay?" He said softly, stepping to the side to catch the ball as it rolled past him again, kicking back over to Eirlys so they could continue their game. Still, his head tipped over to the window again, watching the rain as it trickled down the glass. When the storm eased a little, he said... but this storm certainly didn't look like it was going to ease up any time soon.

Yuck. Yuck yuck yuck!

The storm was one thing— a nice downpour of refreshing rain with flickers of lightning and rolling thunder - a free blessing by Nature herself! But this mud… oh no this mud was bad.

Yahto trudged through the harsh winds and rain to the best of his ability, every step causing more and more mud to squelch between his toes and cling on to what was previously an immaculately groomed pelt much to his dismay.

His direction was toward a large building he could only barely see until the lightning lit up the sky and reminded him where he was going.
You’re almost there Yahto. Keep going a little longer.

He nodded. “I hope it’s warm in there.”

Yahto finally found himself outside the enormous building, slightly intimidated by the structure now that he stood before it. What if there was a nest in there? What a bad scenario!
He sucked in a breath and nudged opened the door to slip in silently, then closed it behind him. He wasn’t born in a barn.

Is it warm? She asked.
“Warmer.”

He padded through the place, ears perked on high alert for any signs of trouble. So far so good.
Yahto rounded a corner and gasped in surprise. Something he hadn’t seen in years. Something completely unexpected.

A ball.

It rolled his way almost ominously. Where did this come from? A ghost? A demon? A demon ghost?
He stared at the purple ball for a moment and then rose his eyes to two figures across the room. His heart thumped initially but his brain processed a few things in order: they hadn’t attacked yet. They were so clean and their pelts were ivory and free of purple. One appeared to be a child. As the final thing occurred to the Leafeon, he once more took note of the ball at his paws and the child he assumed had been playing with it.

A warm smile spread over his face and he swiped his paw at the ball playfully, sending it back to the child in a gesture of goodwill.

“Greetings!” Yahto offered to the adult. “I am Yahto and I pose neither of you any harm. I’m just trying to get out of this storm. May I take up shelter here?”

Ambrette Hotel|Late Night (Raining)
23 (Continuing from Dragon Team)

With the rain falling and no clues to the whereabouts of the two noiverns, Dirk stared out towards the distance. With Peregrine's words echoing in his head that she's hostile and that she may try to kill him. It lead to one thing, if he was to see her again, he'll stop her. Yet Dirk wasn't evolved enough to have a better chance. Turning around, he went inside the hotel as the sound of falling rain continues to beat against the glass and walls. Every now and then, he seen a flash of lightning but the thunder was pretty low compared to other areas when there's thunderstorms. Realizing his fantasizing been less than a boon to him, Dirk decided to be in more in touch with reality. What he wouldn't give to return home and be with his trainer once again but how was he going to leave this place if the undead and some vile pokemon who would attack just to survive are out there waiting to attack. A sigh leaves Dirk's maw as he moves around trying to think to himself on how to survive this area's dangers. Regardless of where he is, first and foremost was staying alive out here.

The Druddigon then walked around only to see an eeveelution and two others. Not who he was looking for but beggars can't be choosers. "I didn't think there was any one else here. Though it seems this storm isn't letting up anytime soon so may as well stay inside for the night. Where are my manners though, I'm Dirk a knight if you will of the dragon order. Unfortunately very little has heard of it. And you three are?" Dirk asked as he sat down on the floor. A little bit of wind was making the rain hit harder on the window than usual but common none the less as nature tends to take its course.

||Ambrette Pokecenter | Late Night [Raining]||
||11 [Post count carried from Dragon]||
This fucking rain was starting to get old, fast. It made everything cold, and the useless gits that ambled around this town like puppets without strings kept slipping and fucking around in the mud, and then had the audacity to track it the fuck back into their shelter. Peregrine snorted from where she was curled up on the countertop of the pokemon center, her tail draped over the edge of the counter and laying down along the floor. Bright gold eyes galred out from under her mask, ears twisted high as she listened to the sound of everyone shifting back and forth around her.

A crash sounded closeby and her head snapped up, wings shifting to allow the noivern to sit upright, fixating her glare on a box of fallen potions that'd been dropped by a machoke attempting to move it. The noivern slowly slunk her body off the countertop with all the grace she could muster, slowly trailing around the fighting type until her tail could hook underneath their leg and yank their legs out from under them. The fighting type hit the ground hard, giving time for Peregrine to pounce, her wings pinning their shoulders to the ground and a threatening hiss rattling up from low in her throat.

"We ain't runnin' a charity 'ere, ye twat. S'me care wi' ye fuckin' hands next time, 'r else ye fingers will be fed ta th' fuckin' fish 'n the aquarium. 'M I clear?" He snarled, getting a fast nod from the fighting type under her grip. She snorted, coiling back off the pokemon and returning to her former place. "Good. Now clean tha' mess up ye good fer nothin' hunk'a muscle."

She watched the machoke slowly clamber back up to their feet, before turning her attention back to the rest of the group she'd gathered. It hadn't been too long since she'd gathered this following; she'd taken swift control after the previous leader had foolishly attacked the noivern when she stopped here in the town for a rest. After swiftly removing that waste of space, Peregine found some use in being able to control who had access to the valuable items within this town and gave most people one of two chances; either they died here, or they took chances with the undead that patrolled the waters below the cliffs. Any pokemon that left here was never heard from again, though once or twice Peregrine had seen body parts wash ashore for smaller undead to fight over like vermin.

She settled back in to where she was sitting, watching the door to the pokecenter. She had a few scouts out wandering the town, looking for any living they could dispatch for food amongst their group. It'd been several days since a scout had last spotted a pair of white-furred canines, though after the first interaction, Peregine hadn't heard anything else. They hadn't left the town yet, which meant they were hunkered down somewhere due to all the weather. Perhaps... if they stayed around long enough, Peregine could have some fun with them.

||Ambrette Hotel | Late Night [Raining]||
||2 | 2||
Zuri kept his eyes and ears alert as he slowly bat the ball back and forth every time Eirlys tossed it back at him. Distantly, he heard the creak of a door opening, and Zuri froze in place, batting the ball with a little more force than he first intended. It rolled past Eirlys, earing a bark of surprise from the puppy. She turned to go follow after it, struggling at first to gain traction. Before she could get too far however, a sharp, gruff bark from Zuri froze the puppy in place, and her legs stuck out stiffly to halt in place. He heard something-- and that bark meant to stop whatever she was doing immediately.

The larger police dog carefully trotted over to her, his nose lowering to press against her cheek lightly to praise her for listening. His eyes then turned up, ears perked forwards as he listened. “Warmer.” A voice; a good sign at least... but even the living were unpredictable at times. So just hearing a sane voice was of no comfort. Zuri carefully placed himself over Eirlys in a protective stance, each large paw placed either side of where she was standing, his head lowered and hackles raising slightly.

That was when he saw them; it was hard to miss the white (although muddied) fur and that purple-blue fading tail and ears. A leafeon... but odd colors. Zuri didn't move from his stance, only letting out a low growl at first, lips pulling back slightly. a leafeon would be easy to take care of, if they were dangerous at least.

His eyes followed as the other pokemon approached, having not noticed them yet, but they did notice the ball Zuri had kicked over at first, taken by the sight of it. Then their eyes rose upwards to properly see the two canines, and Zuri was able to at least tell that their eyes were not red and glowing like the infected and undead were. So... a living pokemon. His growling died down a little and his lip uncurled, though his hackles still stayed raised and he didn't move from where he was. Living pokemon were a little less of a threat at least, and if they could be reasoned with; even better.

The ball was kicked back over and Eirlys let out a gleeful bark, her body trembling as she fought not to race after it. Zuri carefully rose from his protective stance, which allowed Eirlys to spring forth with reckless abandon, pouncing on the ball and kicking it back over to the leafeon in an attempt to get him to play and kick it back.

“Greetings!” Zuri watched Eirlys closely, though his ear twitched at the voice, confirming it was the first one he heard moments before after the door had opened. Good, they seemed safe at least. “I am Yahto and I pose neither of you any harm. I’m just trying to get out of this storm. May I take up shelter here?” It was a reasonable request; one that Zuri didn't see a point in denying. Besides, it might be good for Eirlys to have someone else who would play with her as well. After some time to mull it over, Zuri slowly lowered to a sit, breathing out a low huff.

"Hello to you as well. You can stay here, yes. I am Zuri, and this is my charge, Eirlys." He said, looking down at Eirlys who paused so that she could stand tall and proud, her tail wagging a mile a minute. "Hi! It's been so long since we've seen anyone else, I was beginning to think Zuri scared them all away with his grumpy face! You're very pretty; I've never seen someone who looks like you! Is it paint?" She excitedly breathed out, darting over to Yahto to circle around him, her ears flopping a little as she ran around the leafeon with childlike wonder.

Zuri watched the two for a moment, before he paused again, hearing the sounds of more vibrations; something larger was coming. Once again, that gruff, alert bark sounded and Eirlys froze, looking over at the larger canine. "Oh! That's Zuri's there could be bad guys bark," she leaned over and loudly whispered to Yahto, watching her brother as he slowly moved himself between the two pokemon and where those thudding footsteps were comign from. "When he barks like that, you're s'pposed to freeze, like you've been stuck in place with super strong glue until he says its okay. Zuri's super strong and super smart, so he knows when its safe." Eirlys continued, nodding sagely like she had just bestowed Yahto with the wisdom of a monk.

Zuri huffed out a slightly amused breath at his charge's words, though his eyes were forward, where a large dragon of sorts made his way into view, seemingly just as taken back by their presence here as they were to see him. Zuri planted his feet a little firmer, tail raising as a show of confidence, his head held high and meeting the dragon's gaze unwaveringly. "I didn't think there was any one else here. Though it seems this storm isn't letting up anytime soon so may as well stay inside for the night. Where are my manners though, I'm Dirk a knight if you will of the dragon order. Unfortunately very little has heard of it. And you three are?" His hackles rose a little further, and Zuri let out a low growl, eyes narrowing a little as he looked at the dragon type. He didn't like the way they spoke, and he especially didn't appreciate them just inviting themselves in without asking about it first.

"Bold of you to assume we want the extra company in here," he started, voice firm as he watched Dirk, "state your intentions and maybe I'll tolerate you being here. Myself and my charge were here first, and I don't appreciate people inviting themselves in to share our shelter in that manner. You call yourself a knight but that's hardly chivalrous of you, Dirk." He answered gruffly, keeping himself between Dirk and the other two for now until he'd further sussed out whether or not he liked this new arrival. So far; they were not winning any points from him. "I will introduce myself once I determine if you are a threat to my charge or not. Until then, I will not divulge further information."

Ambrette Hotel | Late Night [Raining] | (2)

Yahto’s tail swished side to side in a friendly manner as the gruff canine eyed him over and seemed to consider his words— hey, that was better than he’d gotten from a lot of other Pokémon! People could be surprisingly unkind in a world where almost everything was out to kill you.
"Hello to you as well. You can stay here, yes. I am Zuri, and this is my charge, Eirlys."
Zuri, Eirlys… What cool names!! Yahto bowed his head gratefully to the canines and then sat down on his haunches, mirroring Zuri. “Thank you!”

The puppy, Eirlys, caught his attention with her prideful stance and wagging tail. How adorable! Yahto had always loved children and this youngster was no exception.
"Hi! It's been so long since we've seen anyone else, I was beginning to think Zuri scared them all away with his grumpy face! You're very pretty; I've never seen someone who looks like you! Is it paint?" The pup bounded to Yahto and ran circles around him in curiosity, much to his amusement. He took in a breath, chuckling warmly at the child’s antics.
“Well, thank you! Nope, not paint— The rain is so heavy any paint would’ve washed away by now sadly!” He answered, laughing.

Suddenly a loud warning bark froze him in his tracks and he immediately assumed he’d done something wrong; “Er… my apologies—“
"Oh! That's Zuri's there could be bad guys bark," Eirlys explained. "When he barks like that, you're s'pposed to freeze, like you've been stuck in place with super strong glue until he says its okay. Zuri's super strong and super smart, so he knows when its safe." The pup nodded a wise, all-knowing nod and Yahto stifled a chuckle to play along; “Oh! Thank goodness you’re here— I thought he was mad at me!” Yahto made an exaggerated motion to his chest as though his heart were beating out of control.

He could see the amusement on the larger canine’s face as he moved past them and in between them and a newcomer. Zuri struck a confident, no-nonsense posture as the creature approached. Yahto moved to the side slightly to watch the dragon— his eyes were kind but focused. He would back Zuri up if need be even if he hoped he wouldn’t come to that.

"I didn't think there was any one else here. Though it seems this storm isn't letting up anytime soon so may as well stay inside for the night. Where are my manners though, I'm Dirk a knight if you will of the dragon order. Unfortunately very little has heard of it. And you three are?"

Yahto hummed. While he had his own opinions on the new guy, he didn’t strike him as an immediate threat. Still, he kept his thoughts to himself as Zuri questioned Dirk, unwilling to overstep boundaries by inserting himself into the situation.
"Bold of you to assume we want the extra company in here," Zuri warned. "state your intentions and maybe I'll tolerate you being here. Myself and my charge were here first, and I don't appreciate people inviting themselves in to share our shelter in that manner. You call yourself a knight but that's hardly chivalrous of you, Dirk."

Yahto flinched at the canine’s tone but didn’t exactly disagree with him. You had to be extra careful when kids were involved. Yahto’s eyes moved to the puppy and he smiled reassuringly.
What a darling child.

Zuri continued, "I will introduce myself once I determine if you are a threat to my charge or not. Until then, I will not divulge further information."

What is the dragon order I wonder.

Dirk didn't expect one of the pokemon to not be too happy with him waltzing in. Then again Dirk didn't know that this was their home. "Bold of you to assume we want the extra company in here," The druddigon had no intentions to anger the Direyena. "state your intentions and maybe I'll tolerate you being here. Myself and my charge were here first, and I don't appreciate people inviting themselves in to share our shelter in that manner. You call yourself a knight but that's hardly chivalrous of you, Dirk." He was right, Dirk was hardly chivalrous but then again, he never knew. "I will introduce myself once I determine if you are a threat to my charge or not. Until then, I will not divulge further information." That did not go well for him at all. There was only one thing to do, apologize and find a different area of shelter. He was so out of touch with reality that he never realized that he made more mistakes than normal.

There was only one thing the Druddigon can do. "I apologize for intruding and I promise I'm not a threat to you or your charge. If you would like me to find a different place of shelter, I would not argue. I didn't even know this was where you lived." He said before he bowed, then he turned around and was starting to leave. Heaven knows what a horrible night this has been so far. Though what awaits outside could also be hiding within the rain, hungry for the living. Back to the entryway, Dirk looked outside making sure nothing was roaming around in search of warm live pokemon. So far, nothing was in the immediate area. Here goes nothing. Hopefully one of the buildings is still intact and not hoarded with undead. Even then, cleaning it out is required. Before he could reach for the door handle a loud crash of thunder sounded and with his helm being metallic, he'd be a conductor for lightning to strike.

||Ambrette Pokecenter | Late Night [Raining]||
||12||
The hustle and bustle of the pokemon moving about the pokecenter was a dull drone to Peregrine by this point. It was boring, nothing new had happened aside from that one machoke fat-fingering the supplies. Her rear leg moved to scratch a red talon under her chin and then underneath the edge of her mask. The noivern's head twitched and tilted into the feeling as one eye closed, scratching at one of the new-er scars that she had underneath it. Lowly, a rumbled rolled up from the bat's throat, startling a few of the nearby pokemon into looking up at her. Both eyes slowly opened again as her foot stopped to look back at the pokemon, tail thudding against the edge of the counter she was sprawled across.

"Yer eyes not workin' 'r somethin', ye hackit fearties? Quit ye gawkin'." She snarled, snorting as they quickly looked away from her, shuffling off to a different part of the pokecenter. The noivern watched the pokemon for a moment, before her eyes slid to the door of the pokecenter. She watched the rain beat against the glass with a low sigh, ears twitching as she listened to the gossip of the rest around her. Nothing interesting, per say; but it was something to listen to. Mundane topics, what the weather was like, how cold it was, a few people were bickering and there was someone snoring in the back. Peregrine slipped herself from the countertop, slinking her way to the door so she could peer outside. Rain immediately dripped down her mask and ran down the wickedly curved metal beak that sat over her nose, golden eyes looking out into the storm.

It was so slow and boring just waiting around for anyone to swing past, so Peregrine was taking things into her own claws. She snaked the rest of her body outside, pausing briefly to look back at the pokemon within the pokecenter. "'M goin' oot fer a while, ye better no' ruin m'fuckin' house while I'm gone. Anythin' outta place once 'm back an' I'll have all yer mawkit hides." She hissed out, before turning to climb herself up on top of the pokecenter roof with a grace that belied her large stature. The noivern crept along the roof of the building with her body low against the ground. Scent would be useless right now, it was pouring rain and any scent of other pokemon would be washed away as soon as it was made. That meant that Peregrine would have to rely on her other senses. She sighed and tipped her head tot he sky briefly, eyes thinning behind her mask. Damned rain... she couldn't stay out long, this rain would chill her and make flying difficult later.

That could be an asset, though. If I'm grounded, weeding my way into a group may be easier... The Noivern mused to herself, shaking her body out and taking to the skies with a powerful wingbeat. For now, she could scout from the air and see about getting information on anything new... the more she knew about anyone else who might be in her town, the better.

Eirlys decided very quickly that she liked Yahto, her tail wagging a mile a minute as her wide, red eyes explored all over Yahto's form, taking in the pretty colors and how white his coat was when it wasn't covered in mud. It was like hers and Zuri's! Though, Zuri said that was because they were something called an 'albino', whatever that meant. “Well, thank you! Nope, not paint— The rain is so heavy any paint would’ve washed away by now sadly!” Her eyes were wide and she nodded, taking in all the information. So it wasn't paint-? That was so cool! She'd never met anyone with those kind of colors unless it was paint!

“Oh! Thank goodness you’re here— I thought he was mad at me!” Eirlys giggled softly as Yahto placed a paw on his chest, though her eyes were watching Zuri, her ears perked high and her paws placed stiffly on the ground. She knew that when Zuri was talking to a stranger she wasn't supposed to move; she'd made that mistake once and had some rude living pokemon try to attack her. Zuri had to fight them off after that and got hurt. Ever since, Eirlys made sure to listen to her brother so he didn't get hurt again for her sake.

Zuri watched the druddigon with an unwavering stare, his claws digging at the carpet below his feet. The direyena's eyes went over the dragon type's body and his face, letting out an unimpressed snort. He didn't like how this newcomer held themselves, and their brash manner of entering somewhere was something the large canine considered a threat already. If this dragon's rash actions led danger to them, that meant that Eirlys would be in danger, and that was not a risk he was about to take. The horned canine stayed silent as he waited for a response to his demands, keeping himself firmly between Dirk and the other two that were sitting behind him.

"I apologize for intruding and I promise I'm not a threat to you or your charge. If you would like me to find a different place of shelter, I would not argue. I didn't even know this was where you lived." Zuri's disbelief was evident in his responding growl. He shifted to sidestep around as Dirk walked past, making sure to always keep himself facing the dragon as they wandered past. If they were already leaving without giving the direyena to say anything; Zuri wouldn't stop them. In his mind, an unpredicable threat like Dirk was not someone he wanted around his charge.

Thunder crashed overhead, and Eirlys whimpered in fear, her legs starting to tremble as she held her ground. She didn't like thunder - it was loud and hurt her ears. Zuri looked back at her and chuffed softly under his breath, giving permission for Eirlys to move. She skittered forwards to hide underneath the direyena, placing herself just behind his front legs. At least here she felt safer, and she was still somewhere Zuri could keep her safe from. Zuri watched Dirk as the druddigon hesitated at the door, giving out another low growl that turned into a lower, annoyed bark.

"If you're leaving, surely some thunder won't stop you," he commented dryly, "you never even gave me the chance to respond, so clearly you already have your mind made up. If you're leaving, then leave. I don't need such an impulsive loose cannon around a child." He said, lifting his head high and keeping his tail raised in a confident upwards curl.

As if the situation needed to be more tense, the sky itself added to the uncomfortable atmosphere in the Hotel by adding a rumbling soundtrack to their standoff with Dirk. Yahto remained silent and left all the negotiations to Zuri who, from what he could tell, didn’t have judgement clouded by a need to see the good in people.
I like that about you though, she remarked.
Yahto hummed in acknowledgment but left the comment untouched— now wasn’t the time to be conversing with her. She could talk at such inopportune times.

"I apologize for intruding and I promise I'm not a threat to you or your charge. If you would like me to find a different place of shelter, I would not argue. I didn't even know this was where you lived."
Yahto sighed a little. Relieved, he allowed his body to loosen a bit as the cues implied this wouldn’t be getting violent, or at least he hoped.

Yahto could feel the next round of thunder in his toes as the very floorboards yielded to the mighty rumbling. His ears perked when a tiny whimper cut through the roaring sky and he immediately turned his attention to Eirlys.
“Don’t worry, dear,” Yahto said warmly, “I’m sure it’ll be over soon.”
He watched the tiny child scramble from her spot over to Zuri where she placed herself underneath his protective form. Yahto smiled at the display, genuinely warmed at such a wonderful bond even in these hellish years.

He returned his eyes to the dragon, halted within the doorway outwards. Was it the storm? Changing his mind about leaving? Yahto’s heart thumped as the conclusion that maybe this would get ugly.

"If you're leaving, surely some thunder won't stop you," Zuri tossed out, "you never even gave me the chance to respond, so clearly you already have your mind made up. If you're leaving, then leave. I don't need such an impulsive loose cannon around a child."

“May I recommend the removal of your, erm… headpiece?” Yep, blank on the word helmet Yahto, great job. “It’s just… you know, with the lightning and all…”
