As for the Matriarch, she is the really really old, but really smart and powerful leader of me and 'Manda's family. The Bellus have been around quite awhile, trying to protect people."
"Oh..." Phoebe thought for a moment. "Um... do you... do you think she might help me? I mean... With controlling Ghostie? He... he hurts people sometimes... When I'm scared. He breaks things. I think me bein' scared makes him angry... And sad. And scared. I can feel it sometimes... I can understand what he says. He says mean things, like tryin' to make me scared of Miss Rua's teeth." Phoebe put her hands together a bit and twiddled her thumbs, fidgeting. "Do you think she can help make Ghostie nicer? And not so angry all the time?"

"Sorry..." Phoebe said shyly before turning back to Alex. "Ghostie grabbed Mr. Leon earlier. He was sayin' Mr. Leon was dangerous."

"Well," Kaylee said, standing and stretching, "we could always go for the other way? We go about our business and, if it doesn't try to attack us, it's not our business? She relaxed. "But Amanda's right. Three days ago, I was the only one I'd ever heard of with... abilities. Now look at the group that's assembled. I'm not sure I believe that's for no reason, yeah? Oh, and Holly? Think you can come out now."

Amanda shrugged and crossed her arms. "I doubt we would find it if it did not come this way, so why bother?"

Alex nodded at Phoebe's question. "I'm sure she could, but she could be on her way out of town by now if she wanted." She hummed at Phoebe's last words. "Maybe Ghostie just needs to learn the difference between dangerous and an active threat. Technically all of us are 'dangerous,' but I doubt any of us are actually a threat to any of the others." She said, trying to reassure her. She put a paw to her chin as a thoughtful look overtook her. "Though... we could always take her to him, he would definitely know at least something helpful."

Amanda's gaze shot straight to her cousin. "You cannot be serious! Kayl- Socks- nobody has actually met him yet, and you want to introduce him to those we have only just met?"

Alex chuckled and scratched the back of her head. "What? He could be a real help for Phoebe! And there's no time like the present to introduce him to everybody." Amanda shook her head, but didn't protest further.

Phoebe looked back and forth between Amanda and Alex before asking the obvious question the pronoun game is intended to provoke: "Um... Who's 'He'?"

"Phoebe, ghostie thinks everything is dangerous. Leon is at worst annoying, not dangerous." Rua commented rolling her eyes at mention of the entity's paranoia.

Rua actually seems upset by that. "many talented individuals unknowingly gathering together suddenly... That... Where i'm from at least, that would be considered quite a bad omen... a sign that fate is placing them where they'll soon be needed. I pray you're wrong about it having meaning." her voice is slightly lower than usual as she speaks, and when alex and amanda chime in about their mysterious figure, you can almost see the shift in rua from casual if mildly irritated to alert and on guard.

"Well," Kaylee said, "if that's the truth it's probably better we try and be friends, yeah?" She offered her Right handpaw to Rua for shaking, her left one to Phoebe and nodded to Leon. "And I don't know who they're talking of yet either."

Both Amanda and Alex spoke the name at the same time, Alex with amusement, Amanda with annoyance.

"Bob..."
"Bob!"

Alex stretched her arms behind her head and elaborated. "He fought the Matriarch once. She won, trapped him away and after awhile he's become a source of knowledge and advice for the Bellus."

Amanda chimed in, lightly. "He has served our family for the past five hundred years, bound by a spell that has not been replicated since before or after the Matriarch's death."

Alex shifted slightly. "He's helped out quite a bit over the years. The Matriarch even made him Amanda's therapist." Amanda sent a glare Alex's way, but otherwise didn't react.

Phoebe accepted Kaylee's offered hand, then turned her attention on Alex and Amanda. "Oh..." Phoebe said, not comprehending much of what they were saying. "Um... Do you think Bob might be able to help me make sure Ghostie doesn't hurt anyone?"

that response, combined with a confirmed head injury judging by his paw and right temple have bonnie mildly alarmed. "Do you know where you are? what's the last thing you remember?" she asks while retrieving a disinfecting wipe and a fur-safe bandage to deal with the surface wound. thankfully the mall staff are apparently good at following workplace health and safety rules, and keep this room well stocked.

Rua's attempt at accepting the handshake is a bit stilted. as if she's seen it but doesn't know if she's doing it right...

Jake kept himself calm and followed any instructions Bonnie gave him. "Good thing a qualified first aider was on paw, eh," he said cheerily, more for Socks' benefit than his own. "Oh, and you're probably concussed so I shouldn't pay attention to anything you said about family, hmm?" He winked at the Cat.

As the group conversed, Leon stood listening in silence, though he did shoot a bit of a 'really?' look over to Rua when she commented about him being annoying. Still, there was still this feeling of uneasiness he was having, but he had no idea what was causing it. After nodding back to Kaylee, Leon asked her "Say uh, this Bob fellow...think he can figure out what 'I' am? Rua knows what I'm referring to...unfortunately..."

"Kind hard to tell where I am when I can't see anything but you and the roof," Socks replies, "But you wouldn't have taken me far from the others. Judging by the smell of antiseptic I'm guessing some sort of nurse's station at the mall and judging by the smell of blood and the way the bunny is pinning me I must have hit my head. The last thing I remember is that... Thing appearing. Felt like getting punched in the head, all that terror all of a sudden..."

"I dunno. She's a dog. Who knows what I might catch off her? She's not even wearing gloves. What kind of first aider doesn't wear gloves?" the cat complains, unable to resist a chance to tease a canine.

"I'm all right, Kaylee." Holly answers.

"One with little choice. They don't have any paw-size ones in here, and I don't have access to my kit right now." Bonnie explains, her tone remaining professional regardless of socks' jab, while cleaning the headwound with the alcohol based disinfectant before bandaging it. "You'll have to make do with generous use of disinfectant."

- - - - - -

"Hmmm." Rua comments to herself, looking at holly. "I expected her to look a bit more fiery considering her partner's abilities... unless i missed something..."

Alex smiled at Phoebe and Leon. "I'm sure he would at least know something that could help you guys out. Maybe not totally, but something at least."

As Holly and Sandy asked 'what' Bob was Alex seemed to hesitate, only to wince when Amanda answered. "Bob is a Lich."

Alex rubbed the back of her head and chuckled. "Over five hundred years old, and doesn't look a year over a millennia... If he isn't actually a millennia old that is." She tilted her head at Rua's strange comment, but didn't say anything.

"And the fact Bonnie didn't tell you it wouldn't hurt should tell you you can trust her, Socks," Jake advised, lessening his 'grip' on the Feline somewhat.

Holly smiles gently at the bunny kit.
"Hi Phoebe. Yeah, I was hiding. Humans don't tend to like my kind. And thanks, but don't be sorry. It's not so bad, really, being dead. It has its perks." she says, attempting to reassure the kit before turning to Rua.
"... You knew I was here too? How? And why firey? I'm a ghost, not a demon. Sandy and I are just good friends. We're not magically bonded or anything."

Sandy opens his mouth to answer Phoebe's question about but is beaten to it by Kaylee. He shuts his mouth as the cat speaks, looking thoughtful.
"Oh, ith that what a lich ith?" he asks when she's done.
"I wath going to thay I thought it wath a bad word..."

~~~~~~~~
S'pose I haven't got a choice, have I? I hope you washed your paws at least." the cat tells the dog.
"... Thanks, by the way... Dog." he adds somewhat awkwardly after a bit, realising that he hasn't been properly introduced and doesn't know his nurse's name.

Rua at this point is focused on Holly but seems to be floundering in her attempts to say something, as she can't figure out a polite way to say 'but ghosts aren't a thing, even with magic'...

"Don't worry about it, kitty." misunderstanding his choice of words, having assumed he would have overheard her name at Sandy's the same as she did his.

Amanda broke out laughing, her spirits being lifted from where they were by Sandy's mistake over the word, leaving her with a good natured smile, even as she stayed silent.

Alex chuckled lightly at Kaylee's description of a Lich. "Ah. I wouldn't exactly say 'living', 'existing' might be a better word for it, but the forever part is spot on!" She put her paws on her hips and shook her head, "Like, we have no idea when he's from, and he finds it too funny having us guessing so he won't tell us."

"Existential questions, huh, hon?" Holly asks Rua with a slight grin.
"Let me know when you work out the answers. I'm dying to hear them. Well, in a manner of speaking." she jokes.
"And don't worry. I never believed in ghosts either, until I became one."

~~~~~~~~
"Yeah, Phoebe. It'th thafe, I'm thure. Amanda and Alekth'th family hath uthed magic for generathsionth. If anyone can control it thafely and teach uth about it it'th them." Sandy assures the bunny.
"Tho no more droopy earth, okay?" he grins, squatting beside her and gently grabbing her eartips, playfully standing her ears upright again.

~~~~~~~~
"No idea." Socks concentrates for a few moments but at this distance the group of pets is now blending into the general flow of emotions amongst the public.
"I can feel that thing there still. And there's some confusion and... Amusement? But I can't get anything more specific at this range."

As Leon watched Sandy play around with Phoebe's ears, he tells Alex "You know, aside from Phoebe and Sandy here, you're probably the first friendly face I've seen and talked to since moving here. Though I'll give Rua there the benefit of a doubt as I didn't really do the best first impressions on her."

Kaylee stood quite close to Rua and whispered in aside to her. "I think I need to improve my friendly face," she said in an exaggerated Southern drawl.

that just causes her to droop and scowl. it's bad enough that this place has a way to make a part of you that shouldn't ever be able to be tangible tangible, but for there not to be an answer on hand as to how and why was just unfair!

"Yes, insulting gestures have that effect." Rua states, delivering the line in a 'dead' monotone. her mind still more on the oddity of the rodent in front of her.

"Tho no more droopy earth, okay?" he grins, squatting beside her and gently grabbing her eartips, playfully standing her ears upright again.
Phoebe giggled, and the whispering stopped. Smiling brightly, she reached up and started playing with his own floppy ears, flipping them up and down, until one of them flipped completely and rested on his head, causing Phoebe to laugh.

With Rua's laughter joining in the fun, Phoebe started laughing even more. Eventually she stopped playing with Sandy's ears. "We gonna go get some drawing stuff now, Miss Rua?" she asked.

Amanda gave a small smile at the sight of Sandy and Phoebe bonding, but didn't approach herself, not wanting to disturb the calm with her frost any.

Alex also smiled as everything seemed to be going smoothly, Socks' pain nonwithstanding. She looked to Leon and shrugged. "Eh, glad to add to that bit of niceness. Granted I was given emotional training, yeah because of my condition, but also 'cause having a kit flicker in and out of sight wouldn't be very professional." She stretched her arms behind her head again in a calm pose. "But I am glad our little meet 'n greet has been pleasant, all things considered. I'd have hated to have to tell the Matriarch that I was part of a violent confrontation with other magical folk not even a day after being reassigned to what should be something of a vacation, heh."

Sandy goes crosseyed for a moment, trying to see his own ear. Then, in order to flip it down again, he shakes his head vigorously.
"BUBLUBLUBLUBLUBLUBLUBLUBLUBL!!!" he exclaims as both his ears and his lips flap crazily.
"That'th better!" he grins once ears and lips have returned to their accustomed positions.

"Maybe I'm a spirit rather than a soul? I dunno. Noah said before that I'm nothing but aura, so I dunno if that tells you anything. I'd have thought I was more ectoplasm but there you go. " Holly informs Rua with a wonky grin.

Socks snorts. "I said they were out of range. They just blend into the background noise from this distance. There are always others closer. I'm never out of range of everyone."
Finally noticing the blood on his paw, he carefully gets up and crosses to the sink.

Hlaoroo wrote:"Oh, that thoundth fun! You like drawing, Phoebe? I like drawing too!"
"Oh, then would you know the closest place to find supplies?" Rua asks, showing a rare smile. Maybe having trouble remembering where that shop was wouldn't be such of an issue.

"I... What? Those are two different words for the same thing, and 'made of aura' makes about as much sense as 'tastes shiny' or 'Spicy colored' unless there's a definition i'm not aware of..."
she's back to confused.

"Head injury, pupils out of sync, complaining of a headache." Bonnie answers, having finished up. though shedoes roll her eyes and add "No leaky brain though." in a joking tone, elbowing jake for the dumb joke that prompted it.

Phoebe's giggling suddenly turned into full-blown laughter at this that has her literally tearing up. "I like you! You're funny!" she said once she was calm enough to speak.
Hlaoroo wrote:"Oh, that thoundth fun! You like drawing, Phoebe? I like drawing too!"
Phoebe nodded. "Uh huh! It was one of the only things I could do without Mommy and Daddy... um... getting mad..." She suddenly started looking and acting rather shy. "But... um... I'm not supposed to talk about that. It makes me sad, and Miss Rua doesn't like it when I'm sad."
Buster wrote:"That's the plan."

"Well," Jake joked, rolling with the elbow, "none more than any other Cat. But you seem like you're going to be fine."

"Umm... well, I drew the sun once since I didn't think I'd see it again. But my drawing kinda turned ugly and smelly after a while..." Phoebe said. Her arms were crossed behind her back, and her ears were drooped back again. She was looking down and fidgeting. "Then, at the pet place, I drew ghostie a couple times. I don't think the people there liked it. They called this old guy in a weird long black coat with and a sort of scarf with a cross on it. I don't think he liked my drawing either. When they showed it to him, he said 'nope' a bunch an' ran for the door."

"Well," Jake admitted casually, "I agree most cats are pretty thick... Figured you and Kay were exceptions though."

"It's a pretty exceptional world. Hol," Kaylee stated, reflectively. "More exceptional than I thought it was a few days back, certainly."

Rua doesn't really know what to say to that, and lets the topic drop. instead focusing on phoebe and sandy.
CyberDragon wrote:"Umm... well, I drew the sun once since I didn't think I'd see it again. But my drawing kinda turned ugly and smelly after a while..."
And promptly had to resist the urge to facepalm as phoebe brought up that one literal bloody drawing again...

Wait she... oh wow, this place has really cowardly witchhunters if she scared one off that easily. despite such thoughts, it still has her feeling a bit protective and she take's phoebes hand, keeping her close.

Alex laughed at Phoebe's story. "Hah, I honestly forget there are others that go seeking magical problems out there. If their reaction was anything to go by then they mustn't have been that experienced. They can honestly get in the way when my clan tries to do our job sometimes, can be a real pain."

Amanda tilted her head lightly, mainly to get rid of some stiffness and responded to Sandy's suggestion to sniff out the art shop. "Or you could use the map of the mall back there." She said, jabbing her thumb behind her, where a plastic case stood with an advertisement on one side and the layout of the mall on the other. "I doubt finding it by smell would help much anyway, with how many shops there are, with so many people walking around. Plus Kaylee's winds probably would have made any trails hard to follow for awhile anyway." She then turned to Kaylee, brows creased slightly, "But, before any number of us go on an art adventure, should we not check up on Socks, Jake and Bonnie? A bit rude to not see those two for awhile and leave them tending to our hurt friend."

"Well, Kaylee. Kay for short. Why? That mean something to you?" Socks asks the dog, standing a little straighter now that the dizziness has passed.

~~~~~~~~
"Huh. What is your clan's job, Alex? You guys find magical problems for a living?"

~~~~~~~~
"Oh, yeah! We thsouldn't leave them behind! Better find them firtht!" Sandy agrees with Amanda, secretly glad that he doesn't have to try to read the map. It's been a while since he's read anything and given he hadn't quite finished school when he was forced onto the streets his skills are a bit lacking.
