    Mikani finds herself reduced to a state that anybody with a heart who's ever been confronted by a puppy finds themselves in quickly:

    "Who's a cute widdle puppy-dog? Yes you are!"

    The puppy is lavished with affection. Jamie is quite lucky Dipsnig isn't within hearing range. He doesn't react well to people calling his wolves dogs.

    The cub next to Pearl is petted in her sleep and squirms a little. Sophie, meanwhile is confused. You don't know what sleeping means?

    Mikani decides that now would be a good time to go and help Irene.

    ...but, puppy!

    So she tries to move away while still petting.

    Pearl continues to pet the puppy. Is it when you absorb nutrition?

    She pounces at the soul bit. She wasn't even trying to take the fish bowl away in the first, but was reaching for that. I'm a bit surprised now that I'm not really tired that she could even grab the bowl in the first place. She'll put the bowl down first if need be.

    The cub follows Jamie curiously. The two-legs that is bigger than Grandmummy and about as big as Mummy's master is funny and interesting.

    Meanwhile, Sophie explains to Pearl: It's when people and animals lie down and rest to have more strength later.

    ((Okay. I got confused by the "reaches out to try and take the soul-bit. Both mentally and with her hand." part. ))

    Irene pounces the Soul Bit and absorbs it. She is filled with a sense of love.

    She even gives the penguin a ghost pat on the head.

    The Clockwork Penguin gets back up and walks away. It doesn't feel love anymore.

    The fishbowl remains behind.

    The Spyrat has stayed far back from the group, and is now walking back to the main room and its master now that they seem to be done. It will look back every so often to make sure they're actually in the process of leaving, and if they don't appear to be it will stop and wait for them again.

    Then Irene and Jamie show up. You got it? Great. I guess we should be off for the next one, then.

    When Pearl tries to pick up the pup she struggles, growling. Pets are one thing, but he doesn't want to be taken away by a strange person.
    I think they'd rather stay here... although I'm not sure what wolves are doing in a mercenary base, Sophie says.

    Furt is curled up near the entrance, his collar and chain laying conveniently on top of his sleeping bulk. Seems like Slii was going to walk him at some point.

    When the light shines into the tunnel, a bleary red orb opens up to glare at Jakus grumpily, and Furt lets out a low snarl.

    "It's not bad. It's just wanting to stay here. You're a good puppy!" Mikani tells the wolf pup, and there's her animal-empathy adding reassurance to that too!

    She gives Pearl a smile and squeezes her friend's hand though as they go to follow Irene out.
