This different planet was absolutely huge, everywhere Ya'akov took Bluberion to, it felt like an entirely new world here. She wasnt quite sure if this planet had multiple worlds on it, or if it was a continuous peisage that changed the more you walked, but either way she wanted to explore it all. Luckily Ya'akov was very nice and took her everywhere with him (more or less), and when he got busy in those big structures he called buildings, she could investigate around, provided she was back where he left her in the first place so he didnt suspect she even left. That avoided scolding. Well, most of the time anyway.

He was busy now too, he told her to "not move from here", but he failed to exactly pinpoint what "here" meant, and on how much land it spread. She assumed 5 leaps.

Five leaps was good.

But she lost track after the 7th when she got sidetracked by the tiniest glowing dot near a big metal bush.

Upon further inspection, it was not a bush. It had no leaves, only metal. It smelled funny.

Bluberion grabbed the edges of what was a dumpster and hauled herself on the thin edge, crouched like some sort of monkey, having no issues with her balance. Then, seeing as the metal bush-lookalike was full, she considered it a mine of knowledge. Unknown to her, she was experiencing the same feeling a person who loved details would feel when looking at a travelling merchant's table full of little trinkets and ornaments of all colors and shapes - she just had to take it all in!

Soon her attention moved onto the shiny thing again, now that the sun brushed a ray over it to make it stand out once more. She rested her hand on some.. box? then leaned into the dumpster to reach the thing that resembled a little glowy star. Would it actually be a star? Ya'akov wouldnt believe it, that she'd get a star! Like those on her homeland's sky and those she saw through the windows of his ship! He'd be so impressed with her, he surely would forget to scold her for not staying put, and forgive her.

Right?

She tried pulling the supposed star out of the debris and clutter around it, and almost fell in the weird metal container since it seemed stuck. Bluberion let go of the metal bit, pushed herself back on the edge of the dumpster then stood upstraight, hopping a leg over to the parallel ledge to be able to try to pull the thingy out from above now. It seemed to work better than before, with more a more stable position like that, and at a big tug she plucked it from the trash, but fell back into the pile of all things unnecessary, brushing away some Smickers wrapper off her face and raising her hand to inspect the star she got-

But it wasnt there.

What??? She had it ONE second ago, did she drop it when she lost her balance and crashed? After a quick head turn, she saw the shine again outside of the dumpster, on the ground, and not too far away a person as well. There was about one leap between her and the trinket, but it seemed to be the same distance between it and the other someone.

Momentarily she was not very glad that once she snuck away from Ya'akov, her skin and hair also went back to their purple color instead of the ones she used to try to blend in with the humans. Would he scold her for that too?

Her milky purple eyes watched the stranger intently, hair covering half of her face and as such not revealing the colorful dots on her neck either. At his slightest move, she'd leap like one of those big, dotted cats she saw on a huge building "hologram" towards the object she earlier claimed. pageview supervisor_account note

everybody’s gotta learn sometime

It was just an ordinary day of picking trash - or pretending to - for Mordy. If only he knew that this day will not be ordinary at all.

He was very sleepy, after working and scouting all night for his illegal patrons. Now he had to actually show up to his official job, which he was SO not in the mood for. But his clever, entreprenorial mind thought that if he fished something really precious, he could get good money for it and make up for a day of lazying around.

So instead of picking up and sorting all the trash, he used a cane and a small, outdated metal detector to poke and prod through dumpsters, looking for ‘treasure’.

Finally, he thought he saw something so he left his machines and cart behind, then put on some gloves and goggles and prepared to dive.

He didn't notice the moving figure until it was on the opposite edge of the dumpster, reaching for the same thing he had his eye on. More than that, the figure's hands was already pulling the object, though she was struggling with it since it was partly buried under trash.

But Mordy was a pro at digging stuff up with the barest of efforts so when the figure dropped it for a second by accident, he swooped in like an eagle and yanked it hard. Fortunately, the stranger had loosened it up for him before. On the bad side, though, he miscalculated the force he pulled with and he dropped it as well. He looked at the object, then at the stranger, noticing it was preparing to steal his hard-work.

"Not today, you dirtbag thief!!" he hissed as well, like an animal - after all, didn't the other person do the same and act like a beast? This was survival of the fittest, the object was obviously expensive, right? Why else would this stranger want it? "I saw it first!" he added, as it didn't matter if it was the truth or not. For him it was, since he didnt know better - or care.

He lunged towards it at the same time, though he was obviously slower and less geaceful. He wasn't sure who got it first, all he knew now was that he was seeing stars, hitting his head on... probably the other person. His ears rang, and he fell backwards on his butt. "Motherfu-"

He opened his eyes... and the woman in front of him was purple. PURPLE.

"Gods have mercy, I can't afford a doctor" he began to lament, thinking that he must have gotten a concussion or something. "What’d you do that for?? This is mine!" he pouted and quickly took the object and clutched it to his chest, almost beginning to cry, rubbing his head with the other hand.

Was that creature trying to fight her for the shiny star? Oh, how they picked the wrong approach. Bluberion couldnt believe she had been hissed at, in this place where the people were supposed to be "civilized" or whatever?? She hadnt seen someone be so....alike her here before.

Maybe he was one of her species? He didnt look much the part, but it was most likely because he changed colors to blend in, right? He was excessively hairy, had dirt all over and didnt seem all that "proper" (when she thought of words like that, she always imagined Ya'akov wiggling his finger-uh, hands thingies in air like two lines at his sides) so what else was she to think? But if he was like her, why be so hostile?? What an asshole. Maybe he came from a rival tribe.

Then they crashed against each other, both sent tumbling, and he was quick to continue attacking her - this time verbally. Gods? Did they share them? Also what was a doctor? Why did he have to speak so much gibberish, to confuse her? That wont get him the shiny star!

Oh but it did, he snatched it with his dirty white hands like the lowest of thieves, despite being aware that she saw it first.

She raised herself on her butt, resting her palms behind on the ground, frowning at him. "I saw it first. You give that back!" Now it was her turn to hiss at him, as she jumped to tackle him and hopefully make him drop the trinket. She wouldnt go after it just yet if he did though, but stand on top of him to hold him down and inspect him, figure out if they were the same or not. Where were his neck cols? What a weirdo. Her clawed hands clasped around his wrists.

She flicked her tail at her sides, slit eyes becoming rounder as she focused more on him. She breathed down on him, sniffing and deciding he smelled like human, but also the dumpster they were just in. "Who are you?" And more importantly, why was he here to ruin her scavenging! pageview supervisor_account note

He was still confused, the small pain on his forehead was beginning to diminish, but that wouldn’t really improve his smarts. Mordy paid more attention when he felt watched, analyzed from head to toe. If he thought about it, something in her speech also sounded off.

”What do you mean you saw it first, I did!! If you did, then prove it. See, you can’t, so it’s mine” he tried to argue, stubbornly, not even realizing it really made no sense. Anyone could easily turn his arguments back on him, but he couldn’t see it.

He blinked a couple of times at the hiss, starting to realize he might have made a mistake and that this... person wasn’t going to give up so easily. The Red gasped when he was tackled and fell backwards, dropping the object in the process. In any other situation, he would be glad to have a woman straddling him... but he was starting to doubt this was one in the first place. Or at least, a human one.

For a moment, he couldn’t breathe, he couldn’t think, all he could do was stare back at her violet skin. Why was he still seeing her like this, did he really hit his head that hard?

And then, his eyes bugged out when he started to notice little details, too real to be made up from his imagination. Demon eyes, weird skin with things on her neck that Mordy was already imagining as weapons, like she was probably breathing fire through there or something. And then a tail.

He was trying to reason this somehow....

But the woman was on top of him, holding him down. He was trapped which made him completely unreasonable and most of all, scared shitless. His breathing was turning erratic and he watched her like a deer watching a predator after its teeth were already sunk in their neck. Her speech was so... normal and understandable, it just made all of this seem even stranger. So the only thing he could do right then, was start screaming his lungs out in fear, like a damsel in distress, voice turning very high-pitched. He was thrashing around and almost crying.

”GODS, PLEASE HAVE MERCY ON ME, AAAHHH” was the most coherent mumble, and then resumed more screaming and thrashing.

He answered none of her questions (which was really just one, the other was a request that he failed to fulfill) and continued to be a hurdle between her and the gift for Ya'akov instead. The people here were so hostile compared to her tribe... no one attacked each other back home, not for a serious reason. They only mauled strangers. He continued to speak in riddles to confuse her and win time to surely make an attack plan.

He freaked out so much that any remaining doubt of him being one of her species had vanished. No one from back home would start yelling from a tackle, unless they were a scared little cub. Was he still a cub? Impossible, he was too big. Still a child, maybe, since he had all that fur on, but clearly not a cub.

What was more important, though, was that his yell startled Bluberion as well, and in reflex she smacked her padded palms onto his mouth to shut him up, back straightening and raising herself from him more. She looked absolutely weirded out, and her sensitive ears were hurting from his high-pitched yell. What if this cry of his brought his pridemates over? Was she going to be in trouble? A second later, she leaped off of him in the direction of the trinket to grab it and keep it close to her abdomen with a hand as she used the other one to creep around on 3 members, watching him warily. "Baby voice." She mumbled to herself about him, remembering how humans kept pointing at their own cubs and calling them babies instead. pageview supervisor_account note

He continued his high-pitched scream and thrashing until he couldn’t anymore, feeling soft paws??? Over his face. He froze for a second, the feeling was weird, but comforting, but that made it even weirder. Like being muffled by a cute cat. Except, this was definitely not a cat, or if it was, Mordy had so many questions.

Still having that palm over his mouth, he now continued his screech as much as he could in his condition, the sound muffled, like a hum, but his eyes were wide open, frantically moving from side to side.

”Oh gods, this is how I die and I don’t even know what’s happening”

And just when he though that, the creature leaped off and left him alone... almost. It took his treasure with it, he didn’t miss that, but right then, that was the last thing on his mind. He looked at her in confusion (was it a her??? He definitely thought he felt boobs, I mean what).

”W-who are you?” he finally asked, his voice squeaking like a mouse’s, his expression just being mind-blown. But then, he got progressively more and more scared – if that was even possible. He hurried to his knees and bowed so far his nose touched the pavement.

”I am your humble servant! Please, take pity on me, I swear I’ll go to the temple three times a day from now on!!”
