As they rounded the corner, Kaida's eyes were instantly drawn to the two pokemon sitting by the lake. Glad to see that they were able to get a drink unbothered by any snake pokemon, Kaida smiled even when they ran off into the woods. The pokemon in Anrui were much less friendly towards humans. Some of them were more timid, and a lot of them were more aggressive, understandably. She was beginning to get used to it, so it didn't bother her very much that they ran away.
As Marie walked to the shed, Kaida walked to the pond. Looking down into it, she could see her reflection muddled with what she could see of the bottom of shore through the tinted water. It reminded her of the pond where she first caught Chihiro. Absentmindedly, she pushed her egg into the crook of one arm and let her other hand grace her water type's pokeball. When she heard Marie's voice behind her, she turned and nodded, smiling until she mentioned the Plasma woman again. Her eyebrows furrowing, she turned back to look at the pond.
She could let Chihiro out, she supposed. It wasn't a large pond. And it wasn't connected to any other waterways. Surely, even if the horsea hid at first, she would be able to get her to come back up before she departed for Hyo City, right?
She made the decision to let her out. With the same hand that had gently touched it before, she pulled Chihiro's pokeball off of her belt and pushed the button. The ball opened, shooting a dash of red light into the water until her horsea appeared. Chihiro looked up at her, and Kaida could see the pain inside of them. They only locked eyes for a few brief seconds before the horsea turned and dove down into the pond, leaving only a trail of bubbles.
Kaida closed her eyes and sighed. She wanted to cry. Memories of her meeting with Antoinette were filling her mind and guilt was pushing down on her heart with such force that she almost needed to sit. She couldn't cry, though. There were no more tears.
Instead she turned to face Marie, putting on another neutral face. If she wasn't careful, her face might get stuck like that.
"If you don't mind me asking... Why was that Plasma woman here? What exactly... happened?" She couldn't hold back her curiosity anymore and she needed a distraction from her own mind. Hopefully Marie wouldn't mind her asking.axew egg 6/15[
