Day one of Guppy's new attempt to lead a more anxiety-free lifestyle has seen him outside in the sunshine, attempting some yoga.

Guppy is actually quite good at yoga.

No, wait, that doesn't sound right, let's try that again.

Guppy has watched a lot of yoga on Youtube, and is confident today that he could pull some of the more interesting poses. Today he is trying something called the 'Crow', which involves balancing on his hands with his knees tucked behind his elbows.

It is precisely this moment that the massive explosion goes off from somewhere in the forest, causing him to nearly jump out of his skin, and fall on his chin.

If that was Vyvyan, there's going to be words.

Mark has recently discovered the rabbits in the forest, and is in the process of skinning and cleaning one at the lake's edge to see how the meat tastes when the explosion goes off. Random explosions aren't exactly uncommon where he's from - systems and equipment have been neglected for a dangerously long time, and sometimes things blow up.

Not usually around here, though.

There's only one other person he can see right now, so he decides to get the obvious out of the way, once his ears stop ringing.

"Was that you?" he calls out.

Mark totally doesn't laugh. Nope. He is a mature adult.

"Cool."

He's torn between curiosity, and not wanting to die. He could get caught up in another explosion if he gets too close. Or the sound could have attracted...

What? Actually, Mark has no idea what lives in the forest, outside of weird-looking rabbits. That's something to consider later, but this guy doesn't seem too concerned about wildlife.

"That normal around here?"

Well, now Mark is worried. Just a little. So he takes his skinned rabbit and moves a little closer to the building. Just in case.

He's using a kitchen knife that was never meant for this sort of work to take care of the rabbit, while a machete and a slingshot both hang from his belt. The machete shows signs of having been both recently sharpened, and recently used on something much bigger than a rabbit.

"What kind of emergencies?" he asks cautiously.

He doesn't need any impromptu emergencies here. He gets enough of that at home.

"Uh? Okay."

He'll ask about Christmas-stealing monsters later. In fact, he'd rather avoid monsters altogether, so he takes his skinned rabbit up to the bar and gets a cooler to put it in. He can roast it later, when there aren't as many possible monsters waiting to sneak up behind him when he's not paying attention.

"Seriously?" Mark sighs, obviously disappointed. "Maybe I can use it for bait, or something."

He was really looking forward to something that neither came from the sea, or an expired can.

Mark doesn't look like the sort of person who eats a lot of pizza. He looks like the sort of person who eats whatever he manages to catch with his own hands. (He kind of smells like it, too.)

"Sure. I mean, if you're buying," he says.

He has no shame. And no money.

"What was that out there? Did you find out?"

[personal profile] justmark 2017-05-18 09:56 pm (UTC)(link)
"Cool. Thanks."

He's looking forward to pizza now. He can't remember the last time he even saw pizza, let alone ate it.

"You really think it's that dangerous out there?"

It seems like the explosions were limited to one, since it all seems quiet now.

Clay is running, like a human, through the forest, since his only outfit is his running clothes.

When he notices the man bending strangely and not gracefully he is curious so he stops to watch. Still trying to learn about this place.

When the explosion goes off Clay turns in the direction of the sound and braces for combat.

He turns to the man who was making those strange poses. Clay workout a lot but not yoga.

"Yes" he walks over to the other man and gives him a steady look, "You are not injured" a strange mix of statement and question. He's seen his fair share of injuries.

"No, You?" he wonders, "Does that happen often here?" his tone somber. His accent is a strong southern twang. The kind kids in the north make fun of or girls fawn over.

Clay doesn't plan on it. Unless a Pack member was in trouble. He doesn't care if others die.

"What were you doing?" he asks.

Keep a safe distance between him and the human. It's better that they are outside but this is still a strange place and the man before him is definitely human. He knows the humans here know about shifters, he still isn't comfortable with that.

"It didn't look relaxing." he states

"And that is relaxing?" he doesn't understand this logic. Humans are strange.
