    A Curious Case of Sensory Overload

    Post by Curiosity on Wed Mar 14, 2018 2:35 pm

    Time: 1:00 PM
    Date: March 15, 2018
    Weather: Sunny and bright

    As the battle raged on the once excited hunter of hunters slowly got bored of its prey. The desynchronization of these five hunters made them trip over each other, minus the twins though they were too distracted by watching each other and not themselves. In a life or death hunt like this one you’d need to be aware of yourself more than others, frankly because once your opponent starts to see this they will exploit it. And exploit it Curiosity did.

    The hunter using the giant horn went down first, he wasn’t fast enough to dodge a deadly tail swipe paired with a spinning attack. The bleed has caused him to go unconscious and the nifty little palicos snatched him from right under his nose to cart him off to their outpost. Something so small made life challenging, but they didn’t have enough meat to make them worth hunting, unless one was in dire need of a meal.

    Once the buff-giver was out of the picture the twin dualblade users were now more vulnerable. They seemed sluggish compared to when the horn was played and their attacks seem to bounce off his fur more often than before. With a snort the Silverwing got to work on them, watching palico tails as they were retreating in the distances was not new to him. He pounced forward slashing his bladewings at the male sibling, then quickly spinning a full 360 to strike both twins as the female arrived into to meet his attack. The female had predictably jumped to his backside to support her brother, she hadn’t noticed that the beast they thought they were hunting had been watching her closely for the time to strike.

    After flinging them across the small field Curi flicked his tail into the air, sending a few sets of very accurately thrown spines onto his prey. Once again the semi-bipedal cats stole the injured hunters right from the brink of death and carted them off to safety. The Beast snorted thinking that this time for sure he might have killed a hunter, it wouldn’t be the first time of course but these felines are exceptionally good at saving their hunters.

    Curi returned his gaze back to the two remaining hunters, who seem only just grasp how dangerous their mission actually is. The gunner quickly rolled away and hid himself behind a few trees causing Curi’s attention to focus completely on the huntress. Cowards are always fun to deal with last. They usually soil themselves while they get carted out. The the oddly interesting huntress made a short almost inaudible noise, which made no sense to the Silverwind. How humans communicate with each other interested him, but he could never understand what they mean with their odd noises. It was quite clear it sounded angry and threatening towards the cowardly hunter.

    The intrigued Curi swiped his tail horizontally causing a dangerous gale to rush at the semi-distract the huntress while he made a pounce to pin her firmly into the shrubbery. The force of his attack had knocked her helmet off and allow him a better look at his prey. He paused before he could take a bite, finding something familiar about her. Her scent was one he has come across long ago. It seemed to mingle with the stench of the Gobul and jogged his memory. He had met this huntress before!

    An overpowering sense of curiosity took over him, Curi moved his face closer to the currently harmless huntress for a better look. She had grown since the last time he had seen her. Her once shoulder length flaming red hair was now mid way down her back and tied together, making it look like she had a tail to match his white spiky one. An involuntary purr rumbled from deep within him, it sounded almost happy to see a familiar face.

    By now the gunner had calmed down and peaked from his hiding place. What he thought he saw struck terror in him., his ally was about to be eaten and he has to do something about it! So he metaphorically grew a pair and rolled out of hiding to deliver a barrage of Thunder shots. The fired shots hit a distracted Curi square in the face causing him to jump to the side and shake his face so that the numbness caused by the electrical bullets to fade. He was furious and it showed as his eyes lit up to produce the famous red trails of light. Turning his head Curiosity growled has he spotted the coward who shot him. The Deviant was seeing everything in the shards of red, and that is never a good sign.

    Warning: RAGE MODE!

    With a furious roar Curi lunged at the scared to sh!t male holding the heavy bowgun. The hunter tried to dodge away, but found himself cut across the back with the Deviant’s wingblade. Once Curi’s paws hit the ground the furious beast automatically spun a full 360 and followed up with a tail slam. The spines of his tail got caught on where they smashed into the ground, but the gunner had been pulled to the side and out of the way at the last second by his cat. The raging Silverwind didn’t stop to watch the invader as he was being carted away. From the look of it the human was out cold and in critical condition. Turning to the last remaining party member, the blazing trial of red from his eyes seemed almost dramatically move in slow-motion. With his mind lost to rage he was out of control and there was no slowing him down especially as the last one standing.

    The huntress pulled her great sword out to face the Silverwind, who only moments before was purring at her. Now she was in for a beating, brought on by the idiot that shot their target into a rage mode aimed at her. It would have been inevitable as the needed to lower his stamina and such so that they could capture him, but to leave her alone in this kind of situations?!

    Curi growled and leaped at the huntress, but as he got closer a sliver of blue light blipped into existence right into his aerial path. He didn’t have time to observe it growing or even blink, as swirling blue circle quickly expanded big enough to consume him whole. It was a portal, but he didn’t know that or exactly what was going to do. Heck the confused beast snapped out of his rage mode in time to see the blue swirly lights as he was engulfed. Then the portal closed with an audible “Ploop~!”

    As the cold inky blackness surrounded Curi, he felt like he was floating in nothingness. Then suddenly he continued with the velocity of his lunge, the forward force of his pushed him onwards to what felt like another eternity.


    'What happened?...'
    'Was it some kind of new trap?...'
    'Did they just let him think that he was winning? ...'
    'Maybe she killed him with her extra large sword? ...'
    'Was he dead? ...'
    'What’s that?...'


    Straight ahead of him there appeared to be a tiny blueish-white light that started to grow brighter as he got closer. The light was warm against his fur, which seems to flatten against his body with what felt like wind. Curi started to squint to try and make out what was the light he was being pulled into, but it was too bright. Then the odd noises started and grew louder as the Deviant was engulfed by the aforementioned light. By now he had closed his nocturnal eyes and covered them with his near snow white paws, trying to shield them from the burning brightness.

    The Silverwind had’t noticed that he was spat out into a very bright and populated area.With his paws still over his eyes, Curi crashed beakmaw first into hard pavement. The rough gravel that made up the road cracked and broke from the forceful crash-landing. Against the road the strong material that made up the Nargacuga’s body was left just little bruised. An angry charging Barroth would have a better chance at causing him more damage that his fall.

    Curi moved his paws off his eyes and shook off the debris that clung to him. He shook his head sneezed thrice consecutively as the fine dust and bits of tiny pavement fragments were inhaled through his nostrils. Curi was quite sure that it was still night time from the last he’d seen. So once the Deviant opened his eyes he gave and indignant yelp as he was greeted with the blinding light of the afternoon sun. A pained grumble escaped his maw as he once more shut his light sensitive eyes, and started to blink to help his eyes. While his eyes recovered his other senses picked up multiple unknown elements from his territory, not that he knew he was no longer home.

    Once his eyes adjusted to the lighting, he sat up and glared searching for the hunters he was fighting. Then panic and confusion took him as he realized he was no longer in his territory, it was noon, and it was jam-packed with familiar and unfamiliar creatures. Everything was much louder, brighter, and very confusing. Some had a bit of resemblance to the hunters he fought off, while others were completely unknown to him. His head seemed to throb with new understanding and knowledge that don’t quite made sense to him but some how did.

    Panic over whelmed the Deviant causing him to spin around wildly and feel cornered by so many curious passerby. Questions filled his mind making his pause as he thought. ’Where am I?… Where is that huntress? Is this what happens when your captured by hunters?!’ Then it dawned on him something was different about the way his mind worked, perhaps it was nothing but it was like there were odd scribbles lined up in special orders… Words…Yes thats the word of them! Words.’ The Nargacuga thought before movement interrupted him. He spun around lashing out like a cat with a warning growling hiss and claw swipe at the air in front of the bystander that got too close.

    The force of his spinning around didn’t cause any deadly gales to be sent out, but he did cause a light breeze with his wings and size. Though his tail did smash into object that were too close to him. Most bystanders, who already knew the drill seemed to just give him a lot of space to absorb the initial shock of being taken into their dimension. They observed him for a while then went on back to their daily activities. Others people seemed more interested in him and stopped to watch, some moved closed trying the cornered beast’s patience.

    Unfamiliar noises and words made by the bystanders in the area confused him, it was making his head hurt as he was not used to knowing these things where saying. He could understand them, just not properly. He couldn’t before so why now? Some of the being he saw around him looked like the hunters and humans that invaded his territory, but all these people he could understand and unlike those from his territory they didn’t hold weapons or seem threatening. Spinning around a final time the Nargacuga was panting hard, his heart was hammering away in his chest as his senses were overloaded with all the usually thing around him. AKA everything. The information of language and speech being translated to him was starting to short circuit his brain.

    In sheer panic from a suddenly approaching person he hopped backwards, into the busy intersection behind him. His tail swung into a odd creature which seemed to be carrying someone in them. Curi flinched in surprise and spun around growling to see what hit him with a noticeable force. It was unknown to him that his tail spines had bit into the vehicle and as he whirled around his tail dragged it into a large variety of other vehicles that had stopped around him. The weight of the object stuck firmly to his tail seemed to prevent him from just taking off and getting out, not to mention he had no idea where out was.

    “GWAAAARRAAAAAAHHHHH!!!”
    (Essentially he is a wild cornered animal in pure panic, in the middle of a semi-busy intersection with his vehicle stuck to his tail.)

    It'd been some time since she'd arrived, but Scarlet had, for the most part, been getting herself accustomed to her new life. Off and on, she'd been wandering, working towards the start of her own forge, as well as learning about the new technologies of this land. Elevators, electric lights...it'd been one hell of a culture shock, certainly. After all, she'd come from a land of Knights, valor, Kingdoms at war...

    To shopping downtown.

    When the woman left the building and stepped out into the warm sunlight, she was momentarily blinded by the difference in light. Her hair was black, shining from the miracle that was conditioner, hanging loose to the small of her back. Rather than the blood red gown she'd been sporting upon her arrival, she was wearing a pair of black pants, and a cropped, white tank top. It was similar to what she'd used to train in, which had helped to make her feel comfortable...though far cleaner. And not torn to shreds. Or burnt. Or covered in ashes.

    After a moment, a loud roar had jostled her from the thoughts of her errands, and her crimson eyes darted in the direction she'd heard the sound from. That...sounded big. The knight could feel the hairs on the back of her neck standing on end, the first surge of adrenaline she'd had in quite some time...

    At least nothing she'd been shopping for was easily broken. Because she took off running without a thought.

    And the scene she was met with was...startling, to say the least. There was a huge creature, in the center of town... Its tail had impaled one of the machines on the road, and it seemed to be angered. Scarlet's eyes darted around quickly for a moment. Hopefully there wasn't anyone in the immediate vicinity that could be hurt...

    On impulse, she reached behind her, as if to unsheath a sword...only to grasp air, to her dismay. Shit...

    Well, that left one option...

    "HEY YOU! BIRD BRAIN!" She shouted angrily, pointing at the beast. She wasn't very far from it, but...she wasn't convinced she'd be able to out-run it if it charged her, either. But now wasn't the time to think about that... There were bystanders, and if that...thing started to whip its tail around with that attached to it, it could do quite a lot of damage... "DROP THE-...erm...the...DROP THE THING ON YOUR TAIL! NOW."

    ...Why could she not even remember the word 'vehicle'? Ugh...

    The Silverwing had never felt so surrounded before, the biggest number of people he encountered at once was the five hunters before he arrived. He took a step back, eye wide with panic, even as the crowd around him seem to disperse and widen. People were starting to read the situation and see how dangerous he was. They had decided it wasn’t a great enough reason to be curious and risk decapitation by wing or impalement by tail.

    The vehicle accidentally attached to the creatures tail was quite battered, luckily it seemed to have kept its rider safe from the abuse. Said rider had long ago lost her voice from screaming as she was force to endure the overwhelmed Nargacuga’s wild movements. Luckily, the woman had taken some safety classes and was protecting her head as the car was thrashed around. She had also used her seatbelt, like any good citizen did.

    By now the terrifying terrified beast had started to feel the exhaustion from his pre-portaling hunt and having to drag around a beaten up vehicle with the end of his tail. It’s not like his tail was
    holding it, but more like the spines that covered his tail had imbedded themselves deep into the passenger side of the car. The banes of having such a powerful weapon was that it had to be fluffed out almost all the time. Curi couldn’t even remember when was the last time he willingly flattened his tail spines, part of him seemed to forget that he could.

    "HEY YOU! BIRD BRAIN!”

    The words pierced his already sensitive ears causing him the beast to flinch and wince. His attention collected away from the curious crowds and on to the single human who had yelled at him. Curi didn’t quite understand what it had call him but some how he felt it was meant to offend him as much as to get his attention. This new thinking thing was very strange and more complicated than before. So confusing…

    Slowly, as if to be dramatic, Curi turned fully to face the human, the vehicle scraped noisily against the pavement making him wince once more. The world around them seemed to quiet down and move away as if they knew something was going to happen, a few bystanders even fled the scene. Their movement caught the Silverwind’s eyes, as a predator spots its preys, so he watched then warily. He noticed his heartbeat start to return to its steady pace rather than its frantic attempt to beat out of his chest. His earlier hyperventilation had slower back down to a predator’s silent breathing. It seemed all because this brave tiny human stole all of his attention, snapping him out of panicked state.

    ""DROP THE-...erm...the...DROP THE THING ON YOUR TAIL! NOW."”

    Once more he winced at the loudness of the human’s voice, did it think he was deaf? He definitely could hear them but what it was saying was barely making sense to him. So he tilted his head, much like what his kind did when they were confused. The much bigger beast leaned forward slowly, as if trying not to scare the human.

    Curi took a careful step towards dark haired figure, making sure not to make any sudden movements to scare them. He had done something similar in his territory when he wanted to know more about something or someone. The Deviant paused as to take a few sniffs in the human’s direction trying to scent them.

    ‘Female… Unknown fragrance… Not very scared… Prey?… Hunter?… ’

    Curi’s piercing nightmarish red eyes scanned the woman for an sign of weapons or threats, but he found none even if she look ed capable of swinging a sword at him. So he scanned the crowd while taking in the mixed scents slowly, to prevent a relapse of overloading his senses. Mostly the were fearful and curious, which confused the Nargacuga. He was sure that humans shared their techniques and information about what they hunted, so where were these ones not running in fear? Did they do something to him that made him non-threatening?!

    Quietly, the Nargacuga moved his wings as he inspected them, incase some one had chopped them off. He sat on his rump, feeling much calmer to know that he could still defend himself, after all he could still feel his tail stuck in the odd metal thing. The Deviant flexed all of his claws into the road, testing if those had been taken. Nope, they were still precent and still wickedly sharp.

    With an annoyed hiss the deadly creature turned to the object inhibiting his movements. He was quite ready to flick it off his tail when the bitter smell of fear found its way to his nose. Intrigued, the large predator sniffed the air trying to pin point where it was coming from, as it was very very close. It seemed to be coming form his tail tip, or to be more specific the large object he had been dragging around.

    The curious beast moved his head closer to inspect it, he had thought that it was a living creature when he first saw it, but now it could tell it was just an odd looking cart with someone inside it. The poor woman had fainted when Curi’s eyes filled her window’s view. ’Dead? Edible?’ The Deviant grasped the odd cart, his claws digging in to the vehicle’s metallic flesh as he tugged his tail away from it.

    By now the crowd had dispersed more and the traffice around the large beast found ways around him and the wreckage. No one was really hurt, but there was quite a number of broken pavements, vehicles, and of course the road itself. The woman in the car was bit bruised and shaken but other than needing some therapy and ice she was fine. Her car on the other hand was totaled beyond repair. Its tires had been scrapping the road enough to have torn open, all the glass had been shattered, and the metallic structure had been crushed inward making it almost impossible to get its rider out without cutting it open.

    Once his tail was was finally free from the wreckage, Curi retracted his claws from it and stood up. A deadly looking white spine jutted out of the battered vehicle, it looked like it could be crafted into a wicked looking dagger. With its sharpness you could gut some one form naval to chin as though a heated blade through butter. Some hunters did collect his spines to make into their armor and weapons, not that he minded since he had an abundance of them growing quickly on his tail. Any blacksmith would see its quality, and handle it with care.

    He sat down then observed at his surroundings again, this time he was in a better state of mind so he didn’t panic. He still was confused though, but this time it was paired up with awe and put curiosity. He had completely forgotten all about the woman that had screamed at him, too busy looking up and around.

    If someone didn’t stop him he might just climb up and explore this new place.

    Then he felt it before he heard it, a soft burning sensation at the center of his stomach. Grrruuuuhhhhggg!... Curi blinked before looking down at his stomach, almost comically. He was hungry and should have been able to grab a kelbi, but that fish faced stinky Gobul and the five hunters had interrupted his hunting.

    Recalling the woman in the wreckage, the beast stood up and got to work on trying to open it up. It would be a waste to leave fresh meat around, as he thought her dead. If he was still hungry there was plenty of oblivious prey wandering around this new place. With his claws he easily pried open the vehicle allowing him to sniff out his meal.

    By then the woman had come to and found herself face to face with a rather hungry looking wyvern. She gave a screech or horror as Curi's beakmaw tilted and opened up to take a bite of her. The sudden noise stunned the beast causing him to back up and try to shake it off. All the while he could feel his eyes start to glow with a start of his rage mode. It was a given fact in his world that Nargacugas were sensitive to loud noises and that sonic bombs would stun them, but right after that they fall into an uncontrollable rage. This time however, with this new way of thinking, Curi managed to shake off his rage mode.

    Grrruuuuhhhhuuuuggg!...

    His stomach grumbled loudly again, causing him to sit back down and rub his furry ears with his white scaled paws. Curi's tail, having a mind of its own sometimes, chose this time to twitch and rattle its spines lightly in annoyance. He wasn't going to throw his spines at the woman, whose scream was comparable to a sonic bomb, but it was tempting.

    When the beast before her had stopped, she almost felt...bad for yelling at it, though she'd been under the impression there was some sort of ferocious beast running loose in the city. She was half right, at least. When it'd began to approach her, she stood firm, looking slightly confused as it seemed to be examining her. Was it sizing her up? Hm... It was strange. It was a curious beast. She'd never seen anything like it before. Bianka even seemed normal compared to this. Hm... She was tempted to outstretch a hand, as if handling a dog or a cat; though with a beakmaw like that, it could easily rend that hand from her arm.

    As its attention fell to itself, for whatever the reason, she watched with her own curiosity. It was almost like it was making sure all of its killing bits came through it's portal unscathed. Only when it's attention turned to the vehicle did she return to being on guard. Her feet began to move on their own.

    At least...until she saw it was pulling it off of its tail.

    Huh...maybe it wasn't...extremely dangerous... Unless provoked. One of the spines remained, and the knight glanced in its direction with a thoughtful gaze. That...was pretty big... it might be useful down the line.

    A loud, gurgling sound caught her attention next. She cocked her head to the side as the beast glanced down at its stomach. It was...hungry? On cue, it began to pry open the car and make its way to the woman who'd been unconscious inside of it for some time. This time, she ran, trying to cover as much distance as possible to make it in time. The woman screamed when she had returned to the land of the living, and the large beast plopped back down. It...didn't look pleased. It almost looked like it was in pain from the scream itself. And the sound from its stomach had rumbled once more.

    Scarlet boldly positioned herself as close to in between the animal and the woman's vehicle as she could, shaking her head at it in an attempt to tell it 'no', before rummaging in her bag. The only shopping she'd gotten out of the way was for her dinner, but...perhaps it would dissuade it from trying to eat the lady. She pulled out a couple packs of grocery-wrapped raw meat and began to take off the plastic. It would likely only be a snack, if it even ate it, but it was something...

    The knight looked to the creature, then, and spoke in a softer tone, attempting to sound a bit more soothing than usual. "You're hungry, aren't you?" She cocked her head to the side slightly, daring to meet its gaze for a moment, before laying a piece of raw steak in her hands. She slowly lifted it to her mouth, as if to show it was for eating, before gently tossing it into its direction. If anything, she figured with it's beak, it would be able to catch it. That'd be safer than trying to feed it by hand, she reasoned.

    With a last shake of his snow-white head the Nargacuga’s ears had recovered enough to hear properly over the faint ringing. His head ache was going to last a while longer but at least he could hear again. Curi continued to rub his ears a little bit longer, as it was oddly comforting and soothing. Had he not been as close to the woman when she screamed the Silverwind would have recovered faster, but since he was just about to a bite his beakmaw was just a few inches away from her flesh.

    It was only then did he notice that the Huntress-like female had gotten defensive about one of her kind, causing him to snort with amusement. Much like a cat would show its apprehension and irritation, Curi’s tail twitched and rattled its deadly spines in warning about the sudden movement and getting in between him and his prey. When she shook her head he didn’t understand what she meant by it. To him it meant she was agitated or frustrated, something that could lead into a squabble, but since she was weaponless Curi was sure she’d make a quick meal, or so he thought.

    Once she stuck her hand into her bag, the Nargacuga bared his large sharp fangs in an oh so threatening growl. Thinking that she was pulling out her weapons Curi started to get into a threat display stance, but once she pulled out the oddly kept meat he seemed to quiet down and watch her closely. He was hungry, but that didn’t over ride his suspicions of raw meat from hunters. Curi had seen it before, a hunter chucks down some specially prepared raw meat(usually an entire kelbi leg) and if a predator eats it they get some nasty effects. Hunters usually rub or stuff the meat with special mushrooms that cause their target to get paralyzed, poisoned, or fall asleep.

    It wasn’t uncommon for them to pull out large explosive barrels and set them off beside a sleeping creature to blow them up. Luckily, those humans that had hunted Curi weren’t able to get close enough up his tree to do such things to him. Truthfully, this particular Nargacuga made it a habit not to eat what he didn’t hunt, but right now he was awfully hungry and might make an exception.

    His nose caught the distinct scent of raw meat, not quite fresh but it was meat. Curi watched the woman in front of him remove some sort of seal that wrapped around the meat he smelled. The aforementioned meat didn’t smell like anything he had ever encountered, making it quite an interest to the curious Curiosity. He watched her carefully, still very suspicious about what she was going to do with the tiny morsel. It didn’t even look like a mouthful, but the beast was already so hungry that anything would sound delicious at this moment.

    “You’re hungry, aren’t you?”

    He understood that somewhat perfectly, thanks to this mystical translating thing that happen when he arrived. Her soothing voice seem to coax an embarrassing reply from his belly, ”Grrruuuuhhhhuurruugggrrrr!…”. It caused him to force himself to stop drooling over the tiny piece of meat and to puff up and act snooty at her offering. When she met his gaze Curi snorted and disdainfully stuck his beakmaw in the air trying his best to not look hungry, although he watched her hands like hawk, a very hungry hawk. Usually when anyone holds his stare it was a challenge for dominance, but in this case it seemed more like she was curious about him so he didn't out right maul her for dinner... errrr lunch...

    When she had started to pantomime eating the offering, he turned towards her almost in horror, as he thought that she really was going to eat it. When she tossed it at him, he was too confused to react, so the raw meat simply landed on the Deviant’s beakmaw with a sloppy thud. Curi blinked, quite frankly he was a quite stunned, odd human actions out of combat always seem to bewilder him.

    Regaining back his ability to react and think once more, Curi felt the chunk of meat slide down his beakmaw. He blinked again while snatching the steak out of the air with his sharp claw, effectively impaling it at its core.  ”Grrruuuurruugggrrrr!…” His stomach complained louder as its previous pleas went unanswered. Curiosity, true to his name, gave the raw meat a few inquisitive sniffs, checking for any earthy smell of shrooms or added ingredients. Finding none he licked the blood from his beakmaw and eyed the brave woman for any reaction that might some how reveal if the meal had any odd effects. She seemed just worried, curious, and cautious about him. Or was she just a good actor?

    Regardless of what else he thought he saw, his body seemed to move on its own accord, until he realized that he was already chewing on the tiny morsel. It wasn’t as fresh as he thought it was but it seemed ok, but it was no kelbi. It was tough, bit on the lean side, and tasted more like an Aptonoth, but not as gamey. What ever creature this meat was taken from, it was nothing that Curi had encountered. Still, the Deviant preferred to hunt his own meals down, the thrill of the hunt was just as tasty as the well earned meal. Though being feed by this huntress-like woman didn’t seem like such a bad thing.

    Barely satisfied, his stomach grumble audibly softer as he watched the oblivious citizens mill about on their daily routines. Crouching down slightly, Curi prepared to leap into the air. A higher vantage point would make getting out of this settlement easier. Then he remembered the woman that fed him, the meal didn’t have any bad reactions and it might have been big enough for her to be full. He felt odd about that thought, perhaps he should replace her would-have-been-meal. She was the only one that did stop by to cure him from the sudden panic, not to mention she had given up her own meal to him. He mulled over the though quietly while curling and uncoiling the tip of his tail, much like a cat would do.

    As the steak spattered onto the creatures beakmaw, Scarlet smiled and chuckled to herself. It was a fairly comical sight, all things considered. Especially since he appeared to be so confused by it. Though, after a bit of examination, it chomped it down in a hurry. So, she'd been right after all, huh? Granted, given the creature's size, that probably didn't do much for him. She glanced down at the pack of meat she had in her hand, then back to the curious animal. It had a few pieces left inside of it... At least she'd saved enough for her week's meals. She slowly stepped forward with the leftovers, setting the small tray before it before backing off again.

    Now that she'd taken care of that, Scarlet turned her attention to the woman in the car. The poor woman was probably traumatized from being nearly eaten. And thrown around. Rightfully so, too. The knight climbed on top of the metal death-trap and offered her a hand and a small smile. "Here. You're alright. Let's get you out of there. Watch out for the broken glass..." It was a bit rough, especially with the vehicle torn up from the beast trying to...well, eat her. But, after a few moments, she managed to get her out. The woman was shaken, but thanked her, repeatedly, before taking off down the street in fear. Scarlet sighed, rubbing the back of her head, before turning her attention back to the hungry beast before her with an almost troubled expression on her face. "...Now...what to do with you, big guy."

    Watching the rest of the meat sitting on the palm of the female’s hand, Curi swallowed the tidbit he was chewing on. Holding a big enough serving of meat to take the edge off one’s hunger helped to keep their attention on you, or well on what you might feed them. The Nargacuga cocked his head slightly, showing his interest in the possible mouthful of raw meat the huntress-like woman seem to be contemplating whether to give him or not.

    Once she started moving towards him, his tail-tip started curled and uncurl expressing its own intrigue about the raw meat. As soon as she set it down near enough to him and then moved away the Deviant leaned forward to inspect it. Finding that it didn’t smell any different and that there was a lot more meat than the previous offering, he seemed to brighten up as he purred happily. After getting back on his paws he reached out with his claw tipped paw to drag the small pile of meat closer to himself, then proceeded to take the entire serving into his maw, meat and tray included. How was he suppose to know you weren’t suppose to eat the container? Besides it did give the meat an interestingly loud crunch and some added flavoring and texture.

    The Deviant quietly sat back down while chewing on the new offering. His tail-tip seemed to dance happily on its own accord, of course it didn’t care that the vehicles behind him had to dodge out of its spiky path or risk loosing a tire. The worst that could happen was they’d anger the currently purring beast and get go down his throat. They could see the wreckage nearby which was the car that had been stuck to the Silverwind’s tailspikes. The car was beaten up so badly that it barely resembled anything other than a clumped up roughly smushed together cube with four torn rubbers on one of its sides.

    ”Here. You're alright. Let's get you out of there. Watch out for the broken glass..."

    As the woman that was feeding him approached the scared to death and back female, Curi stopped chewing to watch them interact curiously. He watched the brave one help the other out of the metal deathtrap before continuing to chew his mouthful. Once is a while he would feel the crunch of the styrofoam tray mix with the chunks of meat.

    The Deviant eyed the woman that smelled strongly of fear as she stuttered while thanking her ‘savior’. Then she notices that the beast was watching her curiously and still quite hungrily, which sends her rushing away in fear of being eaten. Little did she know that fleeing just made the Nargacuga want to give chase and eat her more. It was a good thing he was busy chewing and on the meat that was given to him.

    ”…Now…what to do with you, big guy.”

    Her sign brought his attention back from the fleeing meal on heels to the huntress woman, while her words earned her a curious look. Curi continued to chew the styrofoam and meat mixture in his beakmaw, something about it was making him want to spit it out. That something was likely trying to save him from a trip to the hospital and a giant tummy ache, which he’d blame the one who offered him the treat for.

    When the knight's attention returned to the beast, the crunching was the first to give away what'd happened. The trays, as well, were missing. Scarlet sighed, glanced up at the beast, and motioned for him to come closer. "You ate your food, but you've also got something bad in there." She took a few steps closer as well, lifting a piece of styrofoam from the ground before holding it up and shaking her head. "This is bad. We don't eat bad." The knight tossed it to the side.

    Next order of business...how would she get the rest out of it's mouth without losing an arm?...Or her life, for that matter? Hmm...

    Slowly, she opened her mouth and sticks her tongue out. Maybe it would mimic her like it had seemed to earlier... That, or she'd be there, sticking her tongue out like a fool at a hungry beast. It would likely be the latter, given her luck on things. But if it did at least open its mouth, she could get the foam out. Better than him getting sick off of it.

    There was no actual reason for him to still be chewing on the raw meat and styro mixture in his beakmaw. It was more of the quiet sense of reason telling him specifically not to swallow the mixed meat. He had listened to that extra silent part of his unconscious for many events, which to this day he has never regretted. Most of these were traps set by hunters trying to capture him, Curi had chased and lead other creatures to trigger these devices, as he wanted to see how they worked. Eventually he started to dig his own traps to make hunting a bit more interesting.

    Curi once made a pitfall trap and lined the bottom with skywards pointing spikes, made from point sticks, bone shards, and some of his needle sharp tailspikes. His first victim was a large bulldrome that had charged into his territory and straight into the painful jaws of the spiked pitfall trap.

    Let’s just say that the trap needed some work since dragging the wounded prey kicking and squealing from it was more than a chore. The Silverwind had dined well that night, but had spent a long time removing the spikes that were really deep inside the boar creature.

    Chomp.. Chomp Squish  ...Squish chomp squish...

    The human turned to him, looking at him with what might be shock and exasperation. He couldn’t understand why, he hadn’t gone off to hunt the prey in the settlement and he has stopped moving too much as he may cause more damage to the structures around him, especially with his spiked tail or wingblades. Not to mention that the cars were skillfully traversing around the pile up and the two figures still standing in the middle of the road. The drivers found it best not to blow their horns, as the last hot head who did found his engine smashed and a very angry Nargacuga ripping its hood off.

    As she sighed and made odd paw movements, Curi tilted his head and paused chewing his mouthful. A shard of not meat found its way between his sharp teeth, making him try to lick it loose. It was indeed an odd mouthful of raw meat to have such things. Perhaps they added flavor or perhaps they were to make you feel more full?

    “You ate you food, but you’ve also got something bad in there.”

    The Deviant blinked and slowly processed the words the red eyed woman used. He was still getting used to this new understanding thing. After all, animals didn’t quite communicate as complicated as these lifeforms did. She seems to be confirming what he was eating was his and that it had something bad?! It did taste a little different from the first one he tried, mostly if felt different. As if it was slightly crunch and made odd noises. Now that she mentioned it, Curi flicked his tongue over the messy chunks in his beakmaw, tasting it. For the untrained eye it would look like he was going to swallow it.

    His tail warily tapped the pavement, hard, when her chose this time to approach him so suddenly. The force was powerful enough to leave cracks even with its deceivingly casual flick. It was a blunt warning of what he could do if she tried any funny business. You can never be sure with these... what’s the word.... ah Humans.. one moment they are feeding you things and the next they might try prying your beakmaw open. Just who knows what they are looking for or what they will actually find?

    When the woman bent down to pick up some odd material, Curiosity’s claws flexed out of their sheathes readying to swipe at her if the material turned out to be some type of trap. The Nargacuga was starting to regret accepting the meal, but he was just soooo hungry. As if on cue his stomach grumbled loudly, causing the beast’s eyes to widen as if it got a little embarrassed. Then his eyes shrank into a suspicious glare aimed at the huntress-like woman. Maybe she was just trying to take his meal back?

    “This is bad. We don’t eat bad.”

    Ok that made sense in the creature’s head somehow.. but why is is bad?.. maybe it’s a trick? The Deviant’s stomach complained noisily again, but his subconscious answered back just as fiercely with an urge to spit the meat out. Curiosity was torn in follow his demanding stomach or the smart voice in his head.

    This was about the time when the woman tossed the odd white thing that she had just said was bad and should not be eaten. So when she open her mouth and stuck her tongue out, Curi just sat there staring at her in utter confusion. The new gears that he’s got running in his head chose that time to fart. He realized that she may be hungry too and was trying to get him to feed her by pretending to be a hatchling. These humans are really odd...

    With a huff of annoyance the psudowyvern sat back on its haunches to tower over the female. He looked around for ideas on how to feed her the pre-chewed up, after having realized that it was technically her prey.

    Luckily, the large beast spotted a tree not too far away that had a noisy nest of hungry hatchling looking things. He watched it as a parent bird fluttered into the nest and started feeding them beak to beak. Thinking it was a great idea to feed the not so hungry looking female, he gave the meats a few more chomps before leaning over the woman with his beakmaw wide open. Imitating the mother bird he regurgitated the first raw steak and plopped the whole of what had been in his mouth on her. There really was no way to get his beakmaw down her throat to feed her so he hoped that what he did was able to accomplish the task.

    He waited with his beakmaw open wide and still over her. In his mouth surrounded by razor sharp teeth he free of bits and pieces of intestine destroying material(the styrofoam). He had noticed that some of the curious bystanders had made odd faces along with a noise that sounded full of disgust. Curi stayed still not quite knowing what’s going on on the other side of his beakmaw.


    As a male of his preceptorial species, Curiosity really had no idea on how to feed younglings. Mostly he drove out other predators, especially the young ambitious males that try to fight him for his territory. Other than that you don’t get much visitors as a deadly beast.

    For a moment, it seemed that the creature before had understood, at least to some extent. Granted, she felt like quite the fool for how she was behaving in public...but looking like a clown temporarily was better than dealing with an angry, potentially sickened-...whatever the thing before her was, tearing through the city. When it sat back on its haunches, she peered up at it curiously, closing her mouth and cocking her head to the side slightly. It was only once it leaned over her that she began to sense something was wrong. What, exactly, she wasn't certain of.

    Until a rather sickening sound caught her ears. Oh no... Nonono... Noooo...!

    Scarlet jumped to the side, just in time to miss the bulk of the gunk that came back out of the creature's mouth. It'd still caught some of her left side, which made her skin crawl, but at least it hadn't been dumped on her head... She visibly shuddered before kneeling down next to the pile, looking up at the beast. She extended a hand, pointing into the mass at some of the pieces of white, mixed in with...the other bits, and shook her head. "You ate the good, but you ate the bad too. That would've made you sick."

    After a few moments, waiting to see if it would put her words together properly, she fished out what remained of her food from her shopping trip, pointing out the packaging, as well as the styrofoam tray. "We eat this-" She pointed to the breasts of chicken laying under the plastic. "-but not this. This is the bad." She then pointed to the tray under it, tapping it gently to confirm her statement, before opening it for him. The knight felt bad for confusing the creature into losing its meal, but at least it wasn't swallowing the packaging. After getting it unwrapped, she stepped away from the mess they'd made and set the few raw chicken breasts before it. She held onto the packaging, at first, but quickly spotted a trash can, where she disposed of it properly.

    Splat!

    Most of the chunks of predigested and prechewed-up meat plopped onto the ground with a sickening sound. This caused the Nargacuga to lick his chops and close his jaws , half grinding them with annoyance of the dropped meat. She had asked for it didn’t she? And now it lay smelling funny on the cold hard ground, not that it would stop the beast from just licking up and trying to sift through the meat to remove the inedible stones and stuff. Waste not want not.

    The Deviant turned to the woman, his expression was simple, he wasn’t amused. Though she seemed to look like she got what she wanted, sort of, even with not getting the meal down her throat. He snorted and practically glowered at her expecting her to explain why she had asked him to feed her just to dodge away and let it hit the floor. She didn’t need telling or much glaring to start her explanation.

    “You ate the good, but you ate the bad too. That would've made you sick.”

    Watching her carefully point out the odd white shards in his regurgitated meal, the Silverwind tilted his head piecing together the snippets of what she had said and he made sense of. It seemed to make explain why she wanted him to spit out all the meat, though its questionable on how those white shard got in there in the first place. He understood what she meant enough to feel both grateful and suspicious of her, after all she was the one that gave him the raw meats which had the indigestible white stuff.

    Before he could act on what he understood the woman dug into her bag, which made him quietly raise his tail case what she brought out was meant to harm him. He issue with getting too trusting with these humans was quite justified, as many a hunter had taken advantage of his curiosity and approachability. Of course it never ended too well for both parties, mostly because the hunters barely made it out alive and Curi had to deal with what ever mischievous plan they had tried to use. Someone once tried to use a trap that had been base on a mouse trap, using a tree, rope, and drugged meat. Though Curi didn’t trigger quite trigger it the way they wanted he stayed awake long enough to cart them before falling asleep to the effect of the raw meat laced with sleeping inducing mushrooms. Curi had woken up groggy and sluggish to fight of a large boar creature. Luckily, the Bulldrome was stupid enough to charge right into one of the Deviant’s prototype traps.

    What she brought out interested him more than threatened him. It looked like a type of bird meat, its telltale pinkish hue and lack in marbling gave it away. The huntress-like woman seemed to never run out of food from her bag, causing Curi to wander where would he acquire one of these cornucopias of food. Then again he more or less would rather go hunting and catch his own meal. Perhaps he could share it with her so that she wouldn’t accidentally eat the dangerous white stuff that suddenly appeared in food. Then she started to explain, with caused him to realize that he had been the one to make the mistake of eating the container of the raw steak.

    “We eat this, but not this. This is bad.”

    Since she wasn’t quite classified as a hunter, Curi decided to give her the benefit of the doubt and show his gratefulness of her heroism. He stepped forward, dipping this head low enough to nudge her as gently as he could, which wasn’t very gently, but he is trying. It was his sign of respect and gratitude, but in some cases he uses it as an apology. He had learned this while still in the nest, most of the time it was sorry as his tailspikes tended to stay erect even while just playing with his siblings. Once out of the nest he almost never used it, after all you don’t apologize or thank a territory rival for a fight. You end them… or make them understand why you rule these lands.

    Once, his gesture was done he lapped up the tiny morsels and watched her dispose of the inedible container pieces. Catching the same idea Curi, with his mouth full of never before tasted bird meat, clumsily used his paws to push the contaminated meat he had spat out to the large shiny container that the female used. Once done he swallowed his meager meal and eyed the woman, as if to ask what now? Perhaps she could helping him back to his territory?

    The large creature seemed to understand what she was explaining to it, for the most part. Scarlet smiled at the thought. Hopefully, it would have a better time adapting than she had at first. After a moment, the animal nudged her with its head, which wasn't...exactly the softest. But it seemed to be a good gesture. While it was close to her, she slowly reached her hand to its head to attempt petting it gently. That is, if it wasn't jumpy about it. If it started to react poorly, she would draw back immediately. Wherever it'd come from...it didn't seem to be particularly trusting of people at first. Granted, neither was she.

    Once the creature had eaten again, Scarlet caught his gaze with a curious expression. It seemed...lost? Understandably so...if it'd suffered the same fate as she, then it was probably even more disoriented. And...the Inn probably wouldn't shelter pets. Especially of this size. "...I'm not sure what to do now, big guy. But at the very least, we should get you out of the road." She glanced to either side, frowning slightly as she set a hand casually on her hip. "There may be a park nearby...at the very least."

    Curi watched with interest as the female mouth pull back slightly, her face muscles upwards moved too. He noticed it was quite like a fang-less snarl, minus the threatening disposition. Oddly he quite liked the way it looked, it was sort of friendly and made him want to try it too. So he did, it was a lot harder to even try it will a beakmaw meant for ripping flesh and crushing bone. His lips drew backwards, his fluffy cheeks move upwards, but his beakmaw stayed the same and his canines were bared. He looked at the female with his attempt to replicated her facial expression, little did he know that he looks quite murderous instead, if not a little goofy.

    Eventually he got bored of straining his face muscles and shook the expression off, quite literally. Returning to his normal curious looking self the beast swallowed the bird meat. Though it was not enough to satisfy his demanding stomach it was something to keep it at bay. For now…

    The Deviant’s eyes wandered around his surroundings, the settlement’s lights and movements practical hypnotized him. He had never been in a hunter’s town, let alone this close to a human before, and now he was practically eating out of one of their hands. Curi was still convinced they did something to him when he was engulfed in the blue swirly thing, such a cleaver trap. Perhaps one day he would understand how it worked and maybe, just maybe, he could be able to make them himself and use them. His head was still close to the woman as he pondered the mystery of the whirly blue that he short through.

    It was only when her hand touched one of his fluffy white cheeks did he notice that she was trying to touch him in a curious manner. The beast froze unsure what to make of the gesture. Her movements seemed cautions, but curious if not a little in awe. While she patted his cheek, Curi stayed still after the initial shock wore off. He was thinking about if he liked the feeling, and what he felt about it. Whatever she was doing, he didn’t quite want her to stop as he found that he liked it, mostly the stroking of his fur made him purr happily. If she continued to pet him and/or stroke his fur she would find that Curi would lean in slightly as well as purr a little louder. “ Prrrrr… ”

    "...I'm not sure what to do now, big guy. But at the very least, we should get you out of the road."

    ‘Road?…’ Again with the confusing terms. Just what is this… word mean? Was it edible? His head tilted as he mulled over the new word. The creature’s unconscious seemed to be painting him a picture of the odd earth under his paws, perhaps thats what a road was?

    ”There may be a park nearby.. at the very least.“

    Curi had paused his thinking to listen to the female who seemed be looking for a place where he could stay… Whats a park? All this thinking and confusion was once more over powered by the call of the creature’s hungry belly. Curi nuzzled the woman’s side, fairly gently, as he started to walk towards the nearest structure. He stopped once he was close enough to gauge how far he needed to jump up to get enough height. This would have given the huntress-like woman time to figure out what he was up to and what she wanted to do about it.

    The plan was simple, get up high and find a way back home to the forests and mountains. Little did he know it wasn’t that simple, they were practically at the center of the city and there were many many large structures that would block their view of getting out. With a quick inhale of breath the beast kicked off the ground and latched on to the ledge of the structure he had chosen. With the agility of his species Curi climbed, leaped, and glided his way to a high vantage point. Whether he had a passenger or not it mattered little, as the creature was used to traversing the crowded deep jungles of his home. These hard or shiny structures hardly mattered, since Curi’s claws sank into them easily, though the shiny slippery surfaces were more challenging.

    It...didn't seem to hate being pet. That was a relief. At least she wouldn't be losing fingers. It took her a bit off guard to feel the animal nuzzling her before heading towards a building... Wait...it was headed towards a building. Oh no... After a moment, it'd looked upward, and the wheels in the knight's head began to turn.

    ...It was going to scale the building. She grabbed the spike that'd impaled the vehicle and kept it close. At least she'd have something sharp with her, if necessary...but really. Oh boy... She sighed slightly, following him over as quickly as she could manage once everything had clicked into place. "I feel like this isn't going to end well..." She mumbled quietly to herself. The knight gently touched the animal's side, petting it softly. "Can I come?" Scarlet cocked her head to the side for a moment. If he allowed, she would climb up onto his back and settle in.


    Just in time, apparently, because he took off and began scaling buildings not long after. Granted...the view from there...nothing short of impressive, to say the least.

    It had taken him a while and lots of heart-dropping leaps to get to a decently high structure, but he wasn’t on the tallest in the settlement. The view was indeed breathtaking, odd mismatching splotches of structures much taller and thicker than the tries of his territory. They made a wonderful jungle gym for him if wanted to play around them. His claws radioed sank into the hard crumbly wall, they shattered and cracked the odd slippery shiny walls that you could see through. It was the metal that The beast has a harder time with. If his class didn’t bite in when he unsheathed then he’d have to dent the wall to find better purchase. It would be more trouble some to have to punch holes into the hard material just so he could get higher.

    From where he stood he could see the mess he made on the ground, the metal vehicles piled up around the intersection that he arrived at seemed by a tiny spectacle. From the look of it some citizens had started to clean up the mess he had made. Looking up towards the trail of structures he had picked out to climb the Nargacuga watched the light of the afternoon rays played through the cracks between the structures that made up the settlement.

    Curiosity wasn’t tired yet, though he was breathing a bit faster, he only stopped because he was starting to feel the weight of his body, and something else. Did he gain weight recently? The Deviant sat on his haunches breathing just a bit faster, something about him wasn’t right and he had stopped to find out what before it could hurt him. The beast did a check on his tail, it was free from the metal death trap and weighted like it normally did. Flexing his claws he counted them along with his katana sharp wingblades, all accounted for.so what was amiss?

    Then he heard it before he felt it, something had tangled into the furs of his back. It was a wonder how this thing clinging to him stayed on for the rough journey of several buildings. Quietly he tilted his heals upwards so that he could look at his back and the flea. He didn’t want to scare them off and on to their death, hence he didn’t suddenly spin around to sniff them out. The Deviant noticed an odd patch in his fur, the fur in that area was longer and more softer looking. It actually looked cleaner than the rest of his fur.

    Reorienting himself, the Silverwind turn around to better investigate the odd patch on his one shoulder. He sniffed the long fur and found it to smell human, it was a familiar scent feminine yet rough, quite like a huntress but better washed? Then he noticed that he was just a tad heavier on one side, making him tilt ever so slightly as he moved. Snorting with confusion the Deviant prodded the lump with his beakmaw once, then twice. He found it weird that he himself didn’t feel the pressure as much as the rest of him did.

    Using his beakmaw he nudge the spot and found that it wasn’t quite attacked to him so he gave it a hard long lick. He was trying to find out what it was, but ended up with just a beakmaw full of long luscious odd tasting fur. The strands stuck to his sandpaper like tongue so he ended up having to try and untangle it in his beakmaw.

    Curt looked pretty silly shaking his head and trying to spit the fur out while sitting on his haunches. He thought he had heard the brave woman say something before he jumped up and climbed his way to where he was now. Maybe he should have taken her her with him, surely she would know her territory, right?
