The vixen had been strolling carefully through the streets, seizing this perfect opportunity to practice her walk while paying the market a little visit. Lucky for her, the streets were not as crowded as usual. It appeared as if she would not have to worry about bumping in to too many people today.
When someone else bumped in to her she was caught completely off guard. She nearly lost her balance as it happened, letting out a little squeak out of the surprise she recieved. She was able to quickly recover afterwards as she held on to her staff, a long branch which she utilized as a cane. Her legs wobbled as she straightened herself, though all in all, she was fine.
Once she was sure she had her balance back, she turned around to face the cerulean hound. Her amber eyes curiously eyed him before she realized who it was.
"TETRIS!!!" The vixen gasped, lunging towards the Riolu for a hug. For a slight second she had forgoten how big she had grown, toppling the Riolu with her sudden action.
"Y-You’re… You’re alright! I-I thought those jerks took you away! I’m so glad they didn’t…" By then the vixen choked over her own words as she began to tear up, still smiling as she was overjoyed at the sight of the fighting type. Her long bushy tail waved along to the beat of her happiness as she wiped her tears.-
Isabella paused at Dawn’s question before turning around. “Plushies, you say? I’ve never really tried, but that sounds like a fun endeavor!” Her eyes sparkled at the thought of a new prospect. “I would have to look into it before I actually begin taking orders for them, as well as gather materials… I could very well have a go at it~”
Tetris’s ears swiveled forward to hear the Audino’s commentary. She would consider it… he might have a new option for a gift, then.
Isabella handed off the blanket to Kievr, who gave payment in exchange. “Three coins, I believe,” he said, and Isabella gave a confirming nod. “Thank you for purchasing it~ Anything else you might need?”
"Well if you ever make some, I’ll definetly come and check ‘em out!" The vixen giggled, her tail wagging at the idea of owning more plushies.
Her current set of plushies is a tad too small for what she was used to before coming to Andalusst.
"There’s nothin’ else I could think of that I’d need from a shop like this. All our sitting pillows are fine, right Yue?" She had brought a paw towards her chin in thought, her gaze set to the skies as she pondered. She looked at her partner afterwards in question, to recieve a nod asserting that there was nothing they needed at the moment. "Yeah… That’s what I thought. Maybe I’ll stop by here whenever I need some new pillows too."
"Then we best be off," said Kievr, dropping back to all four paws after tucking away the blanket inside his bag. Tetris gave a nod to his partner and a wave to Isabella, who waved back and called, "Thank you~ Come back soon! And I’ll see what I can do about those plushies!"
The Riolu started to lead the others down the wide street,turning to Dawn after they made a corner. “So, where are headed? Polar Palace?” Kievr tilted his head in slight confusion. “Hm? What’s that?” he asked.
With a small hop, Tetris replied, “Weren’t we going for ice cream?” The Quilava gave a small sigh, having now remembered their promise to the Braixen. “Right, ice cream. I’ll assume this ‘Polar Palace’ is the shop?”
"See ya!" The Braixen chirped, turning around to face the Audino before the group left. She gave the normal type a quick waving of her paw then turned back towards the group.
She rushed herself to Tetris’ side, struggling to keep her balance while keeping an even pace with her friends. Her ears perked up at the mentioning of the ice cream shop, although she knew they could not yet go elsewhere without visiting a certain stall.
"Oh, yeah but… I gotta stop somewhere else before that! There’s some berries we gotta stock up on, and there’s only one place that I go to for that! It’s really close by! You guys can just go ahead without me." The Braixen said, pouting a bit as the ice cream would have to wait. She looked at her Sneasel partner afterwards, grabbing a hold of his arm before saying anything else. "You’ll have to stay with me though!”
"We’ll stick with you. I guess we could restock out own store a bit," said Tetris, subtly refusing to leave his friend’s side. "Just lead the way." He offered Dawn a paw in case she needed something to hold onto while she walked, but pulled away a bit as he realized that might not be she interpreted it as.
Kievr followed alongside the others per usual, but stood to whisper conversation to Tetris. “It’s clear you like her in that way,” he said quietly. This made the Riolu frown and blush slightly. “And what if I do? You’re not involved.”
The Quilava replied, “It might be wise to pull her away from Yue should you… confess. He seems rather protective.” Tetris shook his head. “That’s not how it is,” he muttered, picking up the pace a bit and almost leaving everyone else behind for a second.
The fox still held on to her partner’s arm, oblivious of her friend offering his own arm as she toyed with the Sneasel. Yue let out a slight sigh, clearly bothered by her action although he said nothing against it. It is a wonder where such a temperamental Sneasel could muster enough calm to endure the vixen’s annoyances.
She hung onto him as they made their way further into the market place. Occasionally she would swing his arm around as she hummed, staring at the many kiosks they passed by until they reached a certain berry stand. An Ambipom worked the stand tirelessly, utilizing her two tails to attend to her clients. She immediately paused as she spotted the vixen, even more so once she noticed her partner.
"Oh, Dawn! I-It’s so nice to se y’all!" The normal type waved at her, her eyes jetting towards the Sneasel for a second before looking back at Dawn with a slight fluster.
"Y-Y’all out of nanabs again?" She said, sheepishly placing her arms over her hips.
"Mhm!" The fox nodded. "Ya know they’re my favorite! I’m gonna need some pinaps too, and maybe a few of those watmel berries." She stared at the large stand of assorted berries, having nearly forgotten about her friends. Her ears perked up as she realized that she had forgotten to introduce them.
"Oh, you guys! This here’s Camille! She’s a friend of mine!" She said, turning to face the two of them, then back to the Ambipom.
"S’nice to meet y’all!" The Ambipom waved at them with a small smile. "Any friend o’ Dawn’s is my friend too!"
