The Sunshine Daycare
Solarflare gasped. She didn't realized she mispronounced their name. Was that why they seemed so defensive now? Oh, she hoped that it wasn't the case! "Oh, I'm terribly sorry, Kaelin! Did I offend you? I'm very sorry if I did!" She was so busy trying to not get them to be upset at her that she didn't even realize that she was, unintentionally, frightening the other. Her tail flicked side to side as she looked down. "I'm very sorry.. I didn't mean to.. well, upset you." She felt as if she had failed in her job as a Helper. She couldn't help calm someone down from their panic attack and now she was very sad. She wasn't mad by any means, no, of course not, but she was very sad because she had yet to help the other. "Did.. I do something wrong? I do apologize, if I did! I just.. Never saw someone as pretty as you before! You look so cool!" She hadn't yet noticed that her complimenting the other caused them to get more nervous.
Tera, not really knowing what to do, found a very small looking Ponyta all by herself, so she happily walked over and introduced herself to her, kneeling down a bit to get on her height. "Hello, there, little one. My name is Tera. It's a pleasure to meet you." She bowed her head in greeting. "I know that this Daycare is a bit.. overwhelming, but we mean well." She lifted a hand up and moved it towards her, flames flickering around her body similar to how the Ponyta's body was. She was, too, a fire type. Fire and Fairy, but still a fire type! She smiled happily.
As Blaze stood there idly, she noticed a Flaroptera suddenly approaching her. Intimidated at first by the Pokemon's appearance, she quickly relaxed from their welcoming tone and greeting. "Hello Tera. I'm Blaze," the Ponyta smiled. Tera was definitely right; the place was indeed overwhelming, with many types of Pokemon running around. It almost made her dizzy, even. Blaze tilted her head. "What can I do here? Are there activities and stuff?"
Hello. My name is Mercuri! You can just call me Merc if you'd like, though. I am a huge fan of FNaF, Wings of Fire, Warrior Cats, Pokemon, and MLP.
'I'm not upset. It's fine.' As fine as I can ever get anyway. 'I just don't like other Pokemon much.' Because I've been trained to kill them. 'So I ... I guess I'll go put my handprint on then? Or wingprint, or talonprint, or, um, which is more suitable?' Kaelin floated away, hovering near the paper and awaiting answers. Don't lose control.
Kita & UltraAfter some thinking, Ultra decides to put their sashprint on the labelled paper. After signing, the Honedge backs away, and Kita smiles at them. The two eventually head around the lobby to meet other Pokémon.

Spooky: After exhausting Solarburn's head spooky swung across the ceiling... raining plaster down
Tera hummed a bit, thinking. "Well, I know that there's a nice sunbathing area out back! I often go there to warm myself up, as does Solarflare and Solarburn for some reason." She chuckled a bit, clasping her hands together. "But, otherwise, there's tons of games and things to do here! Like.. you can always get something from the kitchen! You do have to ask first.. but I don't think Soulfire really minds!" She smiled, looking at the little Ponyta. "I can bring you to the sunbathing spot if you'd like! Get away from all this group, perhaps?" She tilted her head, humming. This place was crowded even from her standards.
Solarburn sighed as he watched the Grookey from afar. He walked up to it and then grabbed one of the long sticks a coat for a human would get draped over, it really only got used by Sunny, before he gently tapped on the Grookey's back to get it down. "Hey, runt. Don't hang up like that. Sunny isn't going to be happy if you break his ceiling, you know." He glared at the Grookey, flicking his tail out of annoyance. This place was overwhelming and it was troubling to take care of them all.
Sunny took each of the slips of paper and set them down in their respective areas, smiling. "Alright! I do believe after this.. We only have one more guest showing up for a bit!" He smiled and then gently paatted Solarflare's head. He turned and then motioned towards three seperate doors. Starting with the left most door. "For your convience, and ours, there are three seperate doorways that lead to different areas. The one of the left is where our Kitchen is located and the outside area to eat. It also leads into the hallways where you will be sleeping for the night, perfectly suited for each of you." He motioned towards the next door. "The middle door is mainly used by me and my Helpers, but if you want to use that doorway please let one of us know, it's the hallways that leads out into a calming place so if you need that there's the place to go." He clears his throat and then motions towards the last door, the right door. "And as for this door.. this door leads out into the Garden and swimming areas, so on a hot day please use this door. Tell one of us where you're going so we can monitor you.. but otherwise you're good to go!" He paused. "Oh! Right, yes. I forgot one important detail; if you're wanting our cook, Soulfire, to make you a freshly prepared meal, please offer a few berries in return! It's how we do things here at the Daycare. Thank you." He bowed his head, Solarflare doing the same thing.
Fashionably late and out of breath, an older man in immaculate business wear stumbles through the door. His bicycle, abandoned in the driveway, still spins its tires with his rapid, clumsy dismount, not at all aided by the small briefcase clutched in his right hand. "Mr. Sunny!" He manages to gasp, finding the owner of the Daycare and quickly moving to hand him the package. There's a short pause as he catches his breath(at least, as best he can), then continues on. "We... again, want to apologize for the damages caused, and... hope, wholeheartedly, that the reimbursement was adequate. We were... ecstatic, to see that the fire was not as bad as reports first suggested, and... that you were willing to give the pair another attempt." Managing to recompose himself, he concludes his statements in a solemn tone. "Should they prove beyond your capabilities, and... determined to be more trouble than they're worth, my employer finds it prudent to have them released and replaced. So we, again, appreciate your best efforts, regardless of what the outcome may be." His businesslike demeanor betrays no attachment to the foxes in the case. He was merely there to deliver, and there could be no doubt they'd caused him more trouble than good times in this duty alone.

Sunny gasped quietly upon the sudden, albeit late, arrival. He had quickly gotten himself out of his shocked state after a few seconds of surprise on his face. He cleared his throat and then grabbed onto the briefcase with a smile. "Please, do not worry. I'm sure what happened last time was a mistake. A.. rough one.. but not one that cannot be trained and delt with." He patted the briefcase and then set the briefcase onto the table. "There was no harm done, really!" He looked back at the old man. He hummed a bit. "If you'd like, I can let you borrow one of my other Helpers to help guide you home. That bicycle is a bit.. out of style for a nice fella like you." He was desperately trying not to sound rude. "I'm sure one of them would be glad to help you, even if I do have to wake up one for.. later." He already knew he would be needing to get a few of his other pokemon to help with this amount of guests in the Daycare.
The older man gave a small bow of gratitude. "While I appreciate the offer, I'm sure the ride back will be considerably slow-ah, smoother. Were it not for the short notice, the bike would not have been necessary, but my employer was very ready to get these two into your hands. He has high hopes, as I'm sure you realize. Not many carers can be trusted to properly raise a Kantonian Vulpix for battle, but you've struck him as more than able, and I'm inclined to agree!" The butler announces, turning to the doors. One can hope he truly means what he says and isn't just eager to be rid of Porom. "I wish you a wonderful day, and the very best of luck in raising that pair. The very best." His cheerful adieu falls to mutters as he passes through the doors back towards his vehicle.
Spooky, upon hearing garden stopped immediately and sprinted for the door, ready to play!
