"Oh, hey. neat gas mask," Maria said as the fox returned it to its bag.
Ryan looked at the monkey then back to the mask with an embarrassed look as he made one final inspection then quickly but carefully put it back into the case.
"Oh uhh thanks, I uhh got this from a uhhm gift shop heh"
Snowy said now returning his attention to the small group. Oh! and this is Ryan. He said pointing at Ryan. Hello, Ryan. This is Maria, and Metro. Speedy did the same thing after watching her brother. Hey.
Ryan knew that he had lied instinctively, which he had been doing that for a long time as he didn't like to talk about how he came to even seeing the mask, but he cherished the mask as if it were an idol since he had rightfully aquired it on his own, but the lie was only a small one, then Snowy introduced Ryan and then the presumed sister of Snowy introduced the Lion as Metro and the monkey as Maria. Ryan just smiled as everybody got familiar with each other, he wasn't exactly comfortable in a large crowd and usually when he was uncomfortable he would start to study each person, object or building around him, to keep his mind at ease but as he did this he noticed some characteristics.
To himself *alright keep calm, study your surroundings, keep your mind at ease, looks like Snowy is also carrying a case, looks like a backpack, then lets see.... oh a scar looks like a cut scar, probably shouldnt bring that up. His sister lets see, can't see a tag mabey someone will introduce her, and the regualr cheetah pelt annnd... another scar? The right shoulder guess they both had a dangerous past, though this is different the scar seems more distinct, solid and smoother, thats not a scratch you've seen it before thats a bullet scar, the constant line shows it as a graze perhaps not an entry and exit scar, gotta be careful try not to bring any of that up, you dont know how they'll react. Now the other two, first the monkey though the size and color pattern suggests mabey a Capuchin? And the belt seems to be a collar, with the golden M, though I can't see how a Capuchin would even be near a Lion, guess their owner has a wide variety of animalistic choosing, and of course the Lion, he seems to be calm and concealed but keep an eye on him you never know what could happen but he seems friendly enough just its not a good idea to get on his bad side, though i'm striking curiosity at the tag he is wearing, its the M.G.M logo of course but with his face on it, never know could be the lion though. Good to meet new people but be weary you never know they could be examining you just as well*
And with that last though he turned his head and right side of his body a little bit away from the group slightly trying to cover his own falty "Marks", which he had forgotten about and was afraid they show, as they have before.
