Amiee had finished showing Caden around town some time ago, and the two had settled into the mall after a little tour of that. Mostly, her favorite places to shop and a few good places to get a good meal, although she would most certainly recommend the places she had mentioned outside the mall. They were normally better, but the tour had just felt incomplete without including the mall. After all there were a lot of people from their school that choose to hang out here.
The conversation was just starting to wind down as the two were planning to part ways for the day, partially because Amiee had homework to do, and she had assumed Caden had things to do as well. Partially because she hadn’t informed her partner in the change of plans, and she was afraid if she left her for too long she would come looking for her. She had just finished taking a sip of her coffee, taking a breathe as she opened her mouth to try to start wrapping up the conversation when her eyes fell off of Caden to her right (his left).
Galloping towards them was a mostly white pup with a red striped tail with partly red ears. As she saw it a look of panic overtook Amiee as she immediately shifted from her seat to stand up to try to intercept the creature, unfortunately she had caught it too late and the two met right beside Caden’s seat. Still, rather than give up she opted to try to per-empt any possible damage trying to soothe her partner’s fears.
“I’m fine. Hes fine. Hes a friend.”
Amiee did her best to contain the mon as it gave Caden a glare over her shoulder. Seemingly unphased by her words.
”I’ll save you Amiee. Just give me a few minutes alone with the guy!”
Amiee pulled back looking her partner in the eyes.
“Look at me. Look at me. I’m fine.”
Her partner finally ripped her gaze away from Caden to focus back on Amiee and after confirming that she was indeed physically fine she seemed to calm down.
“You mean hes not holding you captive for the Dark Masters.”
Amiee let out a small sigh as the moment seemed to pass. As she spoke she glanced around the mall. Thankfully no one else seemed to notice the outburst. She gave a small shake of her head.
“I promise he isn’t. I was just showing him around town like I did with you. Now shhhh. You can’t let people hear you talking.”
”Oh, right. Still getting used to this human world thing.”
She gave her partner a small smile and a quick hand on the head letting her know it was alright.
“I’m still getting used to the idea of their being more than one world, so call us even.”
With that done she turned her attention towards their audience member.
“Caden, what you just saw here, you can’t tell anyone. Theres a lot of bad people that would take advantage of it. For me, for her, and for a lot of other people. Promise me. Please.”
If he looked in her eyes there would be more than a hint of desperation in them. Everything would depend on his answer and she wanted to be able to trust him with this. It would be nice to have someone else know after all.
