Burying the dead was never fun.

Not just because of the smell either. Nobody enjoys burying bodies, not even nichelings who kill on a regular basis.

It's especially heartbreaking when it's someone you loved.

 

"I'm sorry, mom..."

Capst stood over a hole, staring sadly at Tippip's bloody and limp body at the bottom. Zaptide was helping bury the bodies, since he was the only one with digging paw.

Her mother was gone.

What kind of monsters ripped a mother away from her own child?

"I couldn't save you..."

She had nobody now. Nobody. Her mother was dead. Her father could have been anyone. The only sibling she had died moments after he had taken his first breath.

She was alone now.

 

She was numb to the sympathetic and pitying looks sent her way as she walked towards the river. They acted like they understood.

They didn't.

They couldn't.

They had all lost people, but only she knew what it felt like to lose the only one you had left.

------------------

"Hm?"

Capst startled, whipping her head around to stare at the voice.

Oh.

It was Pocky.

He was looking at her. Did he want something?

"Did you want something? Or are you here for the view?"

Oh. Right.

"Oh, um, how are your wounds?"

He shrugged, reaching a paw up to his face and rubbing the deep cut across his cheek.

"They're okay. I wasn't aware that the teeth were serrated."

Capst nodded, and silence settled over them.

Not the peaceful silence. The awkward kind.

--------------

This female was strange.

Nobody had ever willingly sat with him for longer than a minute before.

Was she alright?

Maybe she was sick?

Or maybe she was feeling blue? Black? Blue-black?

She helped him. He could at least try and return the favor.

Hm...

Maybe she would feel better if he gave her something. Gifts cheered people up, right?

Not that there was much in this place.

Let's see...

What made him happy?

Bumblebees. The taste of broken jungle branches. Soft, cold winds. The texture of sand. The color yellow. Flowers-

Flowers.

He could find some of those.

He scanned the area, sniffed the air, felt the ground, even listened-nothing.

 

Wait...

Bingo.

He jumped into the river, swimming across and pushing against the rushing tide without so much as a second thought.

Capst was telling him to come back, but he would be fine.

He was already on the other side.

Nudging away some foliage, he crouched low to the ground, sniffing at the bright plants.

A cluster of purples, shaped like some sort of daisy and smelling of berries and salt.

A patch of whites and pinks and pale blues, layers of petals and smelling of sweet things and iron and blood.

He grabbed a few of each, turned, and went right across the river again.

 

Capst was staring at him as he climbed back up, not even bothering to shake the water from his fur. 

He dropped the flowers at her paws, flicking an ear and looking at her expectantly.

She stared at the flowers for a few heartbeats.

Did she not feel better? He tried, he gave her stuff, why was she still feeling bad?

A few more moments.

She looked back up at him.

And smiled.

Fun fact: The flowers Pocky gave Capst are Asters (the purple ones) and Candytufts (the pink, white and blue ones)

Asters symbolize love (hehehe, but he doesn't know that) and Candytufts symbolize indifference (because, y'know, this is Pocky we're talking about)
