    Thankfully, yes definitely "thankfully" that was 100% the right word for it yep, the mention of burning the body managed to break through the fog still tumbling around Leaf's head. With the threat of a mental image she really didn't want anything to do with, sure, but hey, actively needing to...

    Leaf remained quiet as the others talked, still kind of looking down at the grave but not quite having the space in her brain to process or focus on anything in particular. That was a lot of information to take in all at once; it'd sure be neat if everyone could slow the hell down for like five...

    A dead guy? There was a dead guy in there? Leaf pushed her way over to the hole to see for herself. Definitely looked like a zoroark down there. Definitely completely motionless. No clue what anyone was on about with ciphers or feigns or whatever, but also definitely had a vizor that looked a...

    No? He wasn't even gonna try? Okay then, Leaf supposed. Seemed like the least the guy could've done after all... that, but if he still needed to put himself in time out for now then whatever. Still, she couldn't help narrowing her eyes at him a little as he walked away. Long as he did something...

    "Leaf, yeah," she said, nodding. Well, he could move enough to roomba up the berry, at least—that was good. "Glad we didn't lose track of you! Everything oughta be..." Hm. "Fine" probably wasn't the right word. "...calmer now, I think," she settled on after a beat or two. She bent down to get a...

    Everything was loud and hurt and shouting and then, after a few minutes that felt like a few years, it finally stopped happening so much. It still ached a little to breathe through the last of the fog, but only a little. Definitely only a little. It looked like everyone was... mostly?... okay...

    There was a howl behind Leaf as the combined attacks finally, finally brought the Wolf down. They'd done it. They were going to be okay. That was all they'd needed to do. Now maybe they could finally figure out what this guy was even doing here— There was a howl. There was shouting. Similar to...

    Off by the road, out of immediate sight behind the cane stalks, Leaf was trying hard to catch her breath. She'd stopped pretending to cry, even done her best to have the sound sort of fade out like it was getting further away. Hard to tell how well she'd managed it, though, with her chest still...

    There were piercing red eyes, there was something huge and gray hurtling out of the earth too fast to dodge or even register, and then there was darkness. After the darkness there was... the scraggly underbrush. For some reason. That wasn't where she'd been standing. Also, she wasn't standing...

    Leaf kicked away the rocks the Wolf had thrown at her, wincing and not particularly looking forward to the fresh batch he was working up. The beldum called it a stone edge; looked a helluvalot bigger than any stone edge she'd ever seen back home. No points for guessing Swearwolf'd be a huge...

    There was something weird about the way he talked, something grating against her ears in a way that wasn't normal sound. It warped and twisted uncomfortably, the way the darkness oozing from his claws did. Was this what shadow was really like? What it mostly sounded like, though, was a lotta...

    Leaf couldn't remember the last time she'd been surrounded by so many intensely grim faces. Like, yeah, wasn't exactly a slumber party, even she wasn't dumb enough to think that, but there was a difference between being focused on a task and... whatever this was. It'd been like this since they'd...

    "Of course! We've got to train anyway, right?" Leaf said, grinning. "Still working on the 'psychic powers' stuff—" man but it'd be nice if she could toss the bandits back out the door just by thinking about it, but oh, well "—but I've gotten pretty good at this!" She turned and bucked hard...

    "Yeah, that makes sense. The gala will be huge, full of tons of guests and staff and all that; running interference as stuff goes down is probably gonna be easier than trying to outthink, what, two or four different-ish groups plus a whole stack of confused partiers?" Leaf nodded absently...

    "Ideally if we told them they'd just snap out of it," Leaf huffed. She pawed the ground, still frustrated. "But yeah, they might run to their precious bandit or mayor... we could ask if they have a plan for the gala and roll with what to tell them from there, I guess? Same way you asked me."...

    "The last time I had to deal with a bunch of crooks, my team was with me," Leaf admitted, smiling ruefully— ah, right, her team, a team, hopefully there were still some people here who understood the concept of 'team'. "What about anybody who didn't get roped into this?" She gave Koamaru a...

    Well, ain't that just lovely. You go out for a little fresh air and when you come back everyone's all hopped up on banditry and executions. There was just no leaving these people unsupervised, was there. What the hell was anyone—herself included—even doing here? Sonora, Las Picaras... Did those...

    A whomst. "A bandit came up to some of our group and asked them for help doing... what, exactly? Did they say? Why?" Why would a bandit even have approached them in the first place? Had their arrival really looked so shady that they'd attracted criminal attention right off the bat? (Were any of...

    "Gala? The one there've been a bunch of flyers floating around for?" She thought, frowned, shook her head. "Can't say I have. Overheard some locals muttering about it, maybe, what to wear this or not having an invite that. I just assumed it was some jumped-up rich people party and ignored it...

    "I'm Leaf!" She hesitated for only a second before extending a leg to shake. Eh, eff it, no point wrestling with whether old habits were weird or not if he really was human, too. "Uh, sorry if I interrupted you, by the way. I just always think it's really cool to see pokémon who want to learn...
