Hannibal watched the trio approach a still unconscious Etai, meeting Cassius’s glare with a smug smile.
“So little trust...” He purred, a good idea of exactly what was running through the creature’s mind. Of course, the zebra wasn’t going to thank him. If his precious doe didn’t appreciate Hannibal’s efforts, it seemed Cassius would follow suit. Standing away from the gathering for a moment, the hound eventually sighed, getting to his slender legs to take a seat to the newcomer’s left, crimson gaze inspecting the fighting-type. He didn’t know what to think of this one. In some ways, she seemed like Sil; albeit a little snappier. Apparently, his chances at seeking her assistance were doomed too. Damn...
"If you can find some healing berries around here, I can help her,"
Oh, what luck; the mienshao was a healer too. Hannibal snorted, glancing to Cassius and Sil, awaiting their participation in nursing the leafeon back to health. In a way, he wanted Etai to get better. The look on Sil and Cassius’ faces would be priceless at the truth, although, knowing his luck the damn grass-type would persuade herself that he was just as guilty as he’d been made out to be.
“I’d volunteer, but it’s easier said than done,” The houndoom explained to the fighting-type, pressing his sharp, unused fangs against the bars to illustrate his point. His tongue suddenly darted from his mouth to poke between the tiny, metal prison, to which droplets of berry juice still clung. Whilst he could crush berries that were already on the ground, he’d struggle to actually tug the items from the foliage and at best, only transport two at a time to avoid them being pulverized or dropped. “See.” He chuckled darkly, turning away from the female to slump against a nearby tree. There was a never a bad time to rest in Hannibal’s mind. It looked like they weren’t going anywhere soon, so he considered there was no harm in getting comfortable, lying on his stomach, head following the movements of the group. “Of course, you could always help that though,” He added, motioning to the muzzle, a metal clicking where one of the prongs had been previously dislodged. Resting his head on his paws, Hannibal allowed his eyelids to droop, resorting to simply listening to the remaining trio go about their business.
