She calls you Yuki and it makes you laugh for some reason, but you sit down nonetheless. The sudden movement and laughter irritates your throat and you start coughing again, leaning against the wall.
Eventually you stop and your throat’s raw, but it’s been worse so you’ll take this. You wipe your mouth clean of blood.
I’m fine, Nanami. I’m fine.
The laughter catches her off guard and she’s reminded of the brief description of kaibutsu she had been given. Her fins flare slowly and she finds herself growling before she can stop herself, which she does as soon as she notices that she’s doing it.
you don’t look fine…
She growls and it makes your heart sink, but you laugh again despite yourself, drooling a little bit of blood. Your hands twitch and you wipe the bloody drool away.
I. I’m fine, okay? Don’t worry about me.
You try to pull yourself up, but you can’t, so you just stay sitting down, looking away from Oreko.
Her fins tremble and twitch as she tries to get them to lay flat. Try as she might, they stay flared and alert. She’d go and comfort Sabi, but something compels her to stay back.
is there any way i can help?
