Color immediately touched Gabe’s cheeks as Naoki’s thoughts hit him. Oh hah…. A hand reached up to cover his mouth only for it to drop at the last second and a smile be forced there instead. ‘Heh…. Ah…. Well… thank you….’ he chuckled. ‘It’s nice to be called cute either way.’
Merli immediately rolled her eyes at both humans. And here he was harassing her about a small crush on the other Delphox. Unbelievable. If she was any less of a calm and good-natured soul, she would assuredly be calling him out on it. Actually, hmph. She’d lean forwad just a little to catch a sideways glance at him right then anyways. Gabe immediately forced a harder smile still, though, and she found herself rolling her eyes again instead. Whatever. At least this berry wasn’t bad, sort of an acquired taste, actually.
Gabe could not help but be a little curious of the berry bag Naoki was now going through. It wasn’t all that different from bags he had seen before, but he couldn’t help the vague interest in the seemingly endless amount of pockets that were there. He took the berries as they were handed to him— basket and all. The smell of them was stronger now, and he was aware of what they’d probably taste like over a fire, even. Ah, he was hungry already, heh.
As more berries were named and described, a curious look came to Gabe’s features. Huh, that was interesting… very interesting, actually. ‘That would be useful, yeah…’ Maybe it would have even kept a certain Sceptile from escaping his collection. Ah well, he wasn’t a Grass type trainer or anything. ‘What do you think, Merli?’ Merli let out a slow hum. Those berries smelled awfully sweet, and she really wasn’t about that, but maybe they would attract other Pokemon, perhaps. She shrugged after the fact, and Gabe snorted a little. ‘I can pay for a few, you know…’ Taking
without outright stealingwas weird to him right then.
