||Ambrette Hotel | Late Night [Raining]||
||10 | 10||
While Eirlys was far too excited about the prospect of a new story to listen to, Zuri was focused on Yahto, his ears perked high and one eye cracked open to watch him as the leafeon thought. He watched the different emotions flash across the leafeon's face, and the way his eyes misted a little. Thinking of old memories, perhaps? Zuri hummed softly, before letting his eye close again, heaving out a long sigh as he relaxed to sleep.

Eirlys looked at him briefly, before settling in against her brother's side, snuggling up against his matching white fur, her eyes up on Yahto as he started his story. “Well, let me tell you— Stunky make great friends but you NEVER nap with them. I knew one during a summer trip through Sinnoh. Bailey slept in a tent because bugs are sooooo icky,” the little houndrunt giggled at his mocking words, laying her head down on Zuri's paw to use as a pillow, “but I wanted to watch the stars with my friend. So we ended up falling asleep and they never told me about their little sleep-time inconveniences. Do you know what stunky are known for?”

Having never met a stunky before, Eirlys yawned widely and shook her head. Her ears were perked high as she listened along to Yahto's story, though her eyes were already starting to droop - meeting so many people in one day was tiring for the little pup! “As their name implies, they are STINKY. So I’m sound asleep and I started smelling something soooo gross I literally started to dream I was swimming in a giant human toilet. So then I woke up and found out my friend had farted. Eirlys gasped mockingly and giggled at Yahto's unfortunate story, her tail wagging and thumping lightly against the floor.

"Oh no--! Zuri would be so mad if I got sprayed like that." Eirlys giggled, looking over at the older canine as he huffed out a short growl in agreement. Seems he was too tired to really add into the conversation much. “Bailey bathed me, sprayed me with air freshener, even put a tiny tree shaped freshie on me. Nothing, and I repeat, nothing helped!! It eventually wore off but people avoided me like the PLAGUE until then. Me and that Stunky stayed friends the rest of summer but there was a strict no napping rule.” Eirlys giggled again as Yahto complained about his unfortunate story, her eyes blinking slowly as she fought (and failed) to strive off the sleep. She wanted to hear more stories!

Unfortunately, try as she might the call of sleep was too powerful and she yawned widely, smacking her lips a little and blinking sleepily up at Yahto. “All this nap talk has me tired!!” She nodded slowly, fighting off another yawn. "Yeah, me too. You'll be here when we wake up right, Yahto?" She asked softly, already half asleep and mumbling a little. "I miss my friends at the old home... it's nice to have other friends now..." She mumbled in her half-asleep state, before quickly drifting off to sleep, curled against Zuri's side.

The direyena cracked his eye open briefly once he heard Eir's peaceful soft snoring, glancing over at Yahto. "Rest well, Yahto. Don't worry about keeping watch; I'm a light sleeper. I'll wake up if anything comes in here." He assured the leafeon, before shifting to curl himself tighter around Eirlys, closing his eyes and letting himself drift off into a light doze. If he was lucky, they'd get a good sleep through the night.

||Ambrette Hotel | Morning [Raining]||
The first rays of light streaming through the windows hit Zuri's nose and the direyena groaned softly in his sleep, one eye slowly cracking open. He blinked a few times to clear his eyes and let them adjust to the brighter light around them, yawning widely. He'd have to find food for Eirlys soon-- his ear twitched at the sound of added breathing to Eirlys's own, and the direyena's head snapped over to where Yahto lay. He blinked a few times, before sighing softly. So, it wasn't just a late night fever dream then.

On one hand, he was glad to finally find someone else in this wasteland... but on the other hand, that was another mouth to feed. He didn't even know what Yahto would and wouldn't eat. Well... he supposed it would depend on what he could find anyway. He looked out the window from where he lay, squinting in disapporoval at the rain that still pelted the windows. Ugh. Tracking anything in this weather was a no-go, so he'd have to ransack the inside of this hotel instead for something. That was fine... hopefully there was still something here that was in date and not absolutely rotten.

Zuri carefully uncurled from around Eirlys, who was sound asleep still, crawling out from where he'd been wrapped around her. Knowing just how deeply the little puppy slept, Zuri carefully picked her up by her scruff, trotting over to Yahto where he could deposit the little puppy against the leafeon's side. She shifted and mumbled in her sleep, before rolling over to snuggle in against Yahto's side with a pleased hum. With that taken care of, Zuri took quick strides to explore around the area again, quickly patrolling the hallway they were currently sleeping in.

He wandered up to the window to take a seat, looking out over the dreary scenery outside with a frown. How long would this rain last? It had been like this for days. Would flooding be a risk? What would thay do if things started to flood here? Where would they get food? Zuri's frown grew and he stood up to start pacing back and forth. They needed to figure out a food source, and fast. There was only so much food the kitchens here would have that was still edible, and once that ran out... they'd have nothing here. And with the rain, tracking anything would be near impossible...

Zuri growled softly, looking out the window again. If this rain didn't let up, he'd be forced to go out and hunt anyway. Hopefully Yahto could at least keep Eirlys safe while he was gone... he supposed that was a bonus to having an extra in the group at least. Look on the bright side, as Eirlys always tried to tell him.

Ambrette Hotel | Late Night [Raining] | (10)

"Yeah, me too. You'll be here when we wake up right, Yahto?"
The darling pup was already being pulled into the realms of sleep and Yahto couldn’t help feeling something like a lottery winner as her final thoughts before drifting were of his presence.
"I miss my friends at the old home... it's nice to have other friends now..."

He smiled softly, perhaps a bit sadly. A sentiment he agreed with unfortunately, as the literal end of the world does tend to cause some lonesomeness.
“Yes, dear,” he assured the sleepy pup on his own drowsy breath. “I will be here.”
"Rest well, Yahto. Don't worry about keeping watch; I'm a light sleeper. I'll wake up if anything comes in here." Zuri attested.
“Thank you, sir, and goodnight.”

Ambrette Hotel | Morning [Raining]

The morning light, or maybe his internal clock, roused the snoozing Leafeon from his blissful trip to dreamland. His sleep, for the first time in months or maybe years, was undisrupted and left the male feeling as though he’d reclaimed lost time from many nights he could only drift for a few minutes at a time.
He lifted his head from the floor and felt a slight resistance, something maybe akin to a spiderweb which shot chills down Yahto’s spine until he noticed the slight wetness of his cheek.

Oh dear. I haven’t drooled in ages… How embarrassing—

It was then that Yahto noticed a small bundle of pressure at his side. The feline moved blurry eyes to the bump of white fur he’d seemingly grown overnight and smiled softly. He then scanned for Zuri and in the absence of the male, grew slightly anxious— he appreciated the guardian’s trust with the youth, but what if he didn’t deserve it? What if something overwhelmed him and was able to hurt her— he hadn’t half the fighting prowess Zuri possessed!
You are overthinking again, Yahto.
“Of course I am!” He bit back at his ever present friend. “… I am sorry. Perhaps I’m just a bit groggy and not thinking clearly.”
It is alright. I know you mean well.

The Leafeon lay his head back down upon his paws softly as to not disturb the child at his side.

||Ambrette Town | Morning [Raining]||
||19||
The early bird always got the worm.

Peregrine's eyes cracked open as the sun started to crest over the cliffside town, though the light was mostly obscured by the dark clouds that blotted out the sky above. Peregrine squinted out the window with a frown, before slowly lifting herself to her feet with a wide yawn. Reaching to grab her mask and deposit it firmly over her face, she shook her head to test the fit, before stretching out much like a cat would. Carefully slinking her way off the platform she had decided to call her bed, the noivern looked around the pokecenter she called her base of operations, noting with a low hum that most of her subordinates were still sleeping.

She snorted, before turning to head out the doors, giving a nod to the machoke that was on guard duty. They quickly nodded back, avoiding eye contact with the larger dragon as she wandered out into the rain, squinting up at the sky. Rations... a group like this needed food, and what they had stocked wouldn't last forever. Sometime today, she'd get some of them to go scavenge, to restock on what they needed. Meanwhile, she would fly to the beach below and try to grab some scraggler living pokemon trying to escape the weather. This place was such a bottleneck for those escaping the weather, there was usually something to get down there at least.

Turning to head back into the pokecenter, she shook herself off and then made her way to the counter of the medicinal building, climbing her way on top of it and tapping her claws a few times before she raised her tail, bringing it down hard on the countertop with a resounding thus to wake the pokemon within the building. They'd gotten enough of their beauty rest, it was time to kick their asses into gear now.

"A'right ye munter reprobates, it's time fer ye tae git yer arses up and intae gear. I dinnae expect ye tae freeload here. Git out there one yer functional and go looking for supplies for our little group aye? If ye spot tha' goodfernothin' druddigon ou' there, rough thae numpter up, maul 'im, do wha'ever ye feel. Lettim know thae this's my domain." She snarled out, looking at the bleary faces of the other pokemon in the center.

"Now git yer arses up, wake yer sorry arses up and git out there!" She barked, beofre slinking off the counter to make her way outside again, this time taking to the skies to make her way down the clifface to find food for her posse.

The dreary dullness of the skies was quickly becoming a bore to the canine. Zuri squinted at it with a heavy sigh and turned to stand, trotting back along the hallway, towards where the kitchen was. He may as well take stock of what was still edible. He'd had a cursory look over the place when he'd first arrived with Eirlys, but if there were extra bodies to feed, he'd have to look it over again. The former police dog nosed his way through the doors and trotted into the kitchen, his ears held high in case anything else had entered during the night aside from the druddigon and leafeon.

Quickly striding into the room, Zuri started to nose open cupboards, rearing up to get higher to look in more shelves and see what was there. Canned food would be nice to find, though hard to open with their current group. Zuri snorted out some dust, sniffing his way through shelves to see what there was. He came across a few sealed cans, and bags of something that at least smelled edible, and he pawed at them to drag them out into view. It may not be the most nutrient rich thing out there... but he would have to take what he could get.

Zuri moved to check out a few more shelves, managing to nose out a few more cans of food and more bags that still smelled in date - or at least weren't absolutely ruined. Good, he could take a closer look at these later, he had to get back to Eirlys before she woke up. Yahto was there, but that didn't mean that Zuri was completely comfortable leaving the puppy without proper backup. He gave another look over the kitchen before he left, before turning to head out, carefully nosing the door closed when he left to minimise the chance of more things getting in there while he was gone.

The direyena quickly strolled back to where he'd left Yahto and Eirlys, the decaying carpet on the floor muffling his steps as he drew nearer. “Of course I am!” He paused, ears perked high as he heard the leafeon's voice, head cocked. Who was he talking to? There was no one else here... He sniffed at the air briefly as he started to move closer, not picking up anything else in the air as he approached. Was he... talking to himself?

As he drew closer, Zuri spotted no one new around the area, glancing briefly at Yahto as he started to draw closer. “… I am sorry. Perhaps I’m just a bit groggy and not thinking clearly.” He was talking to himself, then... strange, but everyone had their own quirks he supposed. So long as it wasn't directly a threat, he wouldn't care too much about Yahto's... quirky nature. He trotted back to Yahto, giving the leafeon a curt nod in greeting. He came over to the two, nosing Eirlys's side with a huff to wake the puppy up.

She groaned in protest, swiping lazily at the air and rolling over to further snuggle into Yahto's side, complaining with a soft snort. Zuri huffed and reached to careully pick the puppy up by he scruff, depositing her back on the floor on her paws to wake her up. She stumbled about blearily for a moment, her eyes squinting at the light and then looking up at Zuri with a questioning squint. The direyena huffed in amusement, sitting down after a moment and nosing her side.

To her credit, she didn't fall over immediately, though she did stumble and thump into Yahto as she tried to wake up a little more. "Ssss m'rnin' alr'dy?" She mumbled out, looking up at Yahto when she realized that the body she was leaning on for support was not her guardian brother's. It took her a few moments of staring at Yahto before she realized that this was a new person from last night and she blinked herself more awake, tail starting to wag happily. She looked between Yahto and Zuri, yawnig widely and stumbling her way over to Zuri to headbutt his leg in greeting.

"G'morning big bro. 'S it safe?" She asked him, shuffling to sit at his side, leaning sleepily against his leg and looking up at him. Zuri chuckled, leaning down to boop his nose to hers in return. "Yes, Eir', it's safe. Good morning, Yahto. Did you sleep well?" He asked, cocking his head slightly at the leafeon as he addressed him. The upside to having someone else look out for his charge meant that at least she could get some more shut-eye than she used to. Something she'd need since she was still growing.

Yahto’s eyes were open just a crack. He could only imagine the days and days of fatigue had stacked on his exhausted body and worn him down immensely, since despite having slept soundly the entire night, he found himself lulling back into his dreams.

The rain still drummed on the exterior of their haven like rhythmic fingertaps featuring the dull roar of thunder.

It was a lovely sound. It did him few favors to ward away his grogginess however.

His heavy eyes shot back open, instantly alert and present at the sound of paw steps approaching. Yahto’s fur bristled in alarm until the familiar form of Zuri appeared, giving a nod as a hello to the spooked Leafeon. The former trotted his way to Yahto and Eirlys and nudged the pup into dismayed consciousness. She responded by snuggling closer to Yahto as if the Leafeon was willing to protest against Zuri to earn her thirty more minutes of sleep.

His pelt crawled at the very idea of the older canine’s wrath.

The Direyena finally picked the puppy up and sat her on her feet, once again to her dismay. He nudged the tiny form mischievously and sent Eirlys stumbling a little which included lightly smacking into Yahto on her trip.
He chuckled lightly at the sibling-like shenanigans. How wholesome.
Do you think we’ll play around like that when I find you?
Silence. That was okay though. Maybe she was distracted by something.

"Ssss m'rnin' alr'dy?" Eir asked groggily. She stared up at the Leafeon as she leaned against him, with a tiny spark of recognition in her eyes but the confusion on her face was all-too hilariously obvious. It seemed to click in her mind and suddenly she was overjoyed at the sight of Yahto and very much more awake than only seconds prior.

She wobbled her way over to Zuri for good mornings as Yahto finally got to his feet and stretched his back out like a lazy Persian after a long nap.
"Yes, Eir', it's safe. Good morning, Yahto. Did you sleep well?"

He dipped his head in a respectful affirmative to the canine. “Yes, sir. Quite well actually, I feel like I’ve made up for lost time,” Yahto chuckled. “You were up early this morning. Is there anything I can assist you with?”

Dirk rolled onto his back and it became the most uncomfortable feeling he's had. It woke him up enough to readjust but as he did so, he ended up hitting the side of the hotel. This woke him up completely and with little regard to how his awkward sleeping position was. One thing though was to wait for the Direyena to come out and approach him. Sitting up, Dirk felt a bit sore from sleeping like he was. I'm not going to sleep like that again. It's still raining though so chances are that food won't be easy to get today. No matter, a single meal being skipped won't do much. Now though was the matter of trying to cooperate with those in the hotel. He didn't want to cause any trouble for Zuri but even then he hadn't much experience with younger pokemon. Human children was easy to babysit since all it was to watch and keep them safe. Dirk wasn't sure if the same applied to pokemon. Regardless, he came out from the area and sat against the rocky slope thinking on what Zuri said.

Ambrette Town || Morning [Raining]
B'doke 17 || Riley 17


It was an unpleasant night to say the least.

It was cold, damp, and the wind whistled through the rattling building that the electric types were huddled in. Their shared warmth was the only godsend, their pelts still feeling moist as the dark morning finally dawned. Riley was first to wake, the droning of the rain outside talking over the deep, rhythmic breathes of her beloved. She listened for a while, eased by the sound, but no matter how groggy she was the cold and noise prevented her from returning to her slumber. With a massive yawn and puff of her pelt the Raichu blinked open blurry eyes. B'doke's face greeted her, the stress etched lines soft and relaxed with sleep. You were really exhausted.. She realized, having never known the canine to sleep well. Either that or he was sick, though his calm breaths and visage said otherwise.

Though every fiber of her being said to remain by his side the Raichu was quickly reminded of her guilt. It was her fault they were here, that he was so tired from trying to save her, that they had to sleep in his miserable shack. Carefully peeling herself away from him Riley looked on in dismay, desperate to mend what she had caused and beg forgiveness he wouldn't ask for. As the cold started breech her fur and steal the warmth away restlessness worked at her paws. She wanted to sleep and snuggle up so bad but the jittery feeling told her to do something for him. They had already done a quick sweep of this place, it offered them nothing, and with a longing glance she knew the only thing she could really do was.. go find something. Let it be food, warmth, somewhere drier, a way back up the cliff, there had to be something she could find that would lift his spirits. Was it a good plan, a solid plan? No, absolutely not, but the desperation to please was unbearable, so much so the Raichu steeled her nerves and charged out into the rain.

The instant cold and wet feeling was bracing, driving any remaining warmth and sleepiness from her pelt as she skirted about the flooded town. It looked so different in the dull morning light, even more foreign looking than she had assumed it would. Already her vague task was overwhelming her; where in the world would she start? Hell, what was she even looking for? Where we fell? It was a thought, and aside from food the only thing she really clung to. With splashing steps she ran off in the direction they had come from, or at least what she thought they had. Mud and water a constant here, and smothered all else as her fur quickly took on the same look it had the night before. Nothing looked right or smelled familiar, and just as soon as she started her mini quest the mouse wished she had not.

Making it to a random tree the Raichu shook out her pelt, regret quick to set in, her actions stupid, and disappointment heavy. "What the hell am I doing?" She mumbled to herself, clamping her paws on to her temples. This was not the weather to be messing around in, and if B'doke woke up and she was gone he would freak out. Legends she would cause him more stress.. Thrusting her paws over her maw she wailed into muffled fur; this is why she needed him, why he was the lead of everything. Good gods she would get herself lost before she found the spot she wanted.
But as the Raichu took three steps out from under the tree she froze, fear darting along her spine as she back stepped and pressed up against the trunk. She only saw it for a second, but something was flying up above. Big or small, closer or far, healthy or not, she did not catch that, but her instinctual reaction to a predator could not be ignored; she was in danger here.

Waiting as long as her nerves would allow, staring up at the portions of the sky she could see, Riley waited until it seemed safe. Whatever it was hadn't stopped, and hopefully hadn't spotted her. With trembling paws the Raichu bolted, her Agility making her race like the lightning bolt of her tail. Sticking close to structures she ran with all her fury, not daring to veer or look for anything else until she tumbled back into their shelter in an awkward heap.

"BB! BB!!" A wailing cry pierced B'doke's ears, immediately ripping the Delectroke from his sleep as his emerald eyes flashed open to her panicked cries. The bumbling steps had stirred him but her shrill voice sent alarm throughout his body. His head perked, "What's wrong love? What's happening?" he asks, voice a groggy mumble though he was genuinely concerned as he tried to come to. She slammed against his side, the icy chill from her wet pelt as good as being splashed in the face with water. Her muzzle was already buried in his side, her body trembling as she whined, "There's stuff outside! Not good stuff!" Though vague her fear was very real, and he bent his neck over to nuzzle her soaked pelt. "Calm down," he soothes, the calm to his voice betraying his riled emotions. She had gone out again, alone at that? "You're safe. Nothing can get through the two of us."


((The sighting was just arbitrary, not specifically Peregrine or some underling, but it can be helps))
