His previous encounter with a boy just a tad older than he had left the copper man in a wondering state. At first, just like a normal Keres would, he'd taunted the man to bits, grinning at the memory of the undeniable pride felt when the odd silver fellow had cowered over. But then, something odd happened. He had felt something he had never felt before. It rested atop his icy cold heart, turning it slightly warm, tingling it with an unidentifiable pain, and stayed weighing down his stomach even to this moment. It haunted his mind, and made his square paws shake as he walked along the murky tunnels he called home. He did not know what it was called, for he had never experienced it before. Then again, there's a first for everything, right?
Shaking off the encounter, the young devil tore his mind away from the past to focus on the present. Now. No use pondering over a feeling when you could be doing much better things. Besides, Keres wasn't sure if he had enjoyed the feeling, anyways. Suddenly, a shape emerged in the dim light, yellow lenses squinting to identify the figure. A female. Somewhere, deep in the depths of his mind, the lad knew this lady, however, he couldn't recall her name. Should he know her name? Was she important to her in some way? "Hilo dere, mis",
he chirped, smiling a tender smile as he trotted up neatly to the lass, puffing out his copper fur to disguise his undeniable scrawniness. "How are chu today?"
"Let me talk."
