Ultra Prisms RP [1x1 with Slimemold]
Grace nodded to the Bounsly's question related to her name. "That's right. The one and only." she responded with a warm and friendly smile to Natty. She ignored the noise from her Skorupi friend in an attempt to become friends with the Bounsly. She seemed like the kind of Pokémon who knew how to have fun! Sassafras remained silent as she listened to the three Pokémon converse with each other, deciding that she herself would speak once they were finished to suggest what they do from there. "Oh! Speaking of food, I'm pretty good at finding berries. Do any of you have a preference on what type of berries you will eat?" Grace asked the group. The mention from Natty that they were friends caused Sassafras' back to tingle with joy. Her eyes widened with a little twinkle, and she put both hands next to her mouth in amazement. "We're friends?" she asked in a quick, gasping fashion. Was she... tearing up a little? "Oh goodness. I was hoping we'd eventually become friends throughout our travels together, but to already consider us your friends- Why you've made me the happiest Charmander in the world!" she beamed and jumped in glee. "Jeez lady, it isn't that big of a deal." Grace mumbled to herself and watched the Skorupi leave them behind. Grace shuffled after the grump- as she heard Natty call him when she went past her and Sassafras-- so he wouldn't get too far by himself. "Hey! Wait up! You haven't answered my question yeeetttt!" she exclaimed to Sachs as she was chasing after him. Sassafras noticed the two Pokémon walking away and began following them. She stopped and looked over at Natty after she had gave her friendly adivce. "Oh don't worry! I'm used to these kinds of Pokémon by now!" she said, keeping the same smile and twinkle in her eyes.
‘’Ah, yes, that’s important’’ Natty murmured to herself upon hearing Grace’s question. Then, louder this time, she said ‘’I prefer berries that feel strong on your tongue. Y’know, like sour candy?’’ The Bounsly then looked at her side, expecting her friend to follow up with his likings. But of course, Sachs wouldn’t bother to reply her. Unsurprising, really, given he was in that one mood. Natty held the urge to not-so-gently nudge at his side. Perhaps pester him a little to get him into the conversation. Instead, she decided to let it slide and focus on the far less grumpy ids nearby. ‘’I mean, yeah?’’ she blinked and took a step back, not expecting the Charmander’s happy outburst at all. ‘’Gotta agree here, it’s not a big thing or anything’’ Even if she agreed with Grace, Natty didn’t want to play killjoy this time –Sachs was already doing a very good job with his current hissy fit– so she promptly added with a shrug ‘’but if you like having friends, then eh, who am I to step on it?’’ With both Sachs and Grace gone, she figured it was time to continue on their hunt for berries at their own pace and began following Sassafras the moment she began stepping into the grass. Returning the smile, albeit with a little less intensely –Sassafras was truly enthusiastic about friendships, it seemed-, Natty let an amused huff, saying ‘’Heh, can see why…’’ She didn’t need to pull back at all the recall the almost-fight from back at the hill. ‘’Really, what was that whole thing with the uh, Giranite, anyway?’’ she frowned, glancing ahead where, thankfully, Sachs was now out of sight. ‘’That kid seemed just about ready to rip him and also us apart for even being on his way…’’ - Sachs continued stomping his way through the tall grass, decidedly ignoring the voice trying to address him as he fumed over Natty’s words. Why was she so bent in befriending these random kids? They hadn’t even known each other for more than a few minutes and there she was, calling them ‘buddies’ and ‘friends’ already. A tiny part of him knew the turtle kid, leafy Goomy, birdy and flowery Charmander could turn out to be nice if he gave them a chance and that his issues were only with Bronco, but there was no way he’d acknowledge such a thought; anyone who treated the weird Bulbasaur or his just as weird green friend good was already on his bad side. The Skorupi didn’t stop until he reached the forest’s tree line and stood there for a bit to look for a berry tree. There was a mound of melting snow to his left –more like a puddle, really- and most to the trees across appeared to be very dead by how they had no leaves whatsoever, only bare branches and exposed twigs remained. No berries were in sight. ‘’Great,’’ he thought out loud, ‘now I came here for nothing’’ Sachs knew that it too more than just giving a glance to find berries -it was a basic skill for a would-be-explorer- yet he decided to simply turn around on his feet with a shrug and a self-satisfied smile to begin heading back to the hill where the rest stood. Natty and he could do without berries, so if any of them wanted them so badly, then they should forage around by themselves.
Grace nodded to the Bounsly's detailed response. "I'll see if there's any Aspear or Sitrus berries growing early then." she chirped, before she left Sassafras and Natty by themselves to chase after Sachs. Sassafras hadn't heard what the Petmy had uttered under her breath, but it didn't seem important since she was already gone. Instead, the Charmander forgot all about the mission and continued conversing with Natty. "Having friends is everything where I'm from!" she cheered. "There isn't really much to do in Cinnabark except spend time with the people you care about. So, that's why I've always liked making friends. So we could keep each other company during times when we had nothing important to do. Not that developing bonds between each other isn't important." she rambled. Seeing her new friend turning back to the forest caused the current mission she gave everyone to recollect in her mind. She almost immediatly began moving in the direction that they other two had rushed off to. She turned her head back every few seconds to make sure Natty was following. "I have an issue where I get really upset when a friend leaves. Yeah, these things happen all the time, but it just hurts in every instance. Giranite leaving really did a number on my emotional state before we found out why he did it, and it seems Bronco blamed him for that." she explained. "I don't know why he's still mad at him now since we're all good but... I have a theory." she stopped in her tracks and turned around to Natty. She cupped her hands together in a fashion similar to how one would whisper something in to someones ear without getting too close. "I think Mister Macho Man was more upset about him leaving than I was." she whispered to the Bounsly, despite no one else being near them. - Grace continued chasing after Sachs, though he was going pretty fast even though he was just walking. Grace had always been a very slow mover. She was thankful that he finally stopped at the forest's edge, giving her time to catch up to him. She was less thankful when he turned around and began heading back in the direction she was in. "Yo, dude. Where are you going?" she asked with shock spread across her face. "You seriously aren't giving up now, are you?" She shuffled closer to the forest and turned around to him. "If you want to find berries then you have to get a closer look than just that!"
