((Hey Rider, it's worth mentioning that Cool and I agreed on the headcanon that Moon gave Lillie the baby Cosmog from the Cosmog event and she named it Nebby Jr, despite having no technical familial relationship to the original. I figure Hau would probably be ICly aware of that. ||D))
Blue smiled sympathetically at Hau. On one hand, her legs hurt and she was tired! But on the other, she didn't think she had the strength to look Hau in the eyes and tell him she thought Lillie was gone. She didn't want to hurt him like that. Maybe some pain was worth putting that eventual reality off. As White appeared though, Blue's eyes were immediately drawn down to her rather round stomach. It looked a bit like she was hiding the better part of a watermelon under her shirt, so not exactly hidden. She “...It's good to have the energy to search better. Are you sure you aren't hungry, Hau?” Blue asked, lightly concerned.

White paused, glancing down at herself for a moment. Hau asking her if she was hungry did elicit a bit of a smile from her. The irony of that amused her. "...Nah, I already ate." White replied. She wasn't confident that Moon would appreciate her obliging. "And... Yeah. Moon's here." White replied, pointedly placing a hand over her stomach. "You can't see her, but she can hear you and stuff. She was suffering from Hypothermia when I found her because of a pokemon, so I had to put her somewhere very warm..." White added, patting her stomach a couple of times in a once again pointed manner, guiding Hau to realize what she was saying without outright stating it. "So if you hear any muffled voices, that's why. She's safe though. That's what matters. Speaking of what matters though, Victini, was this who you saw? I don't think either Hau or Blue can pass for a blonde." White asked, turning to her pokemon. (Mmnope! She had a pokemon for a friend, not another human.) Victini replied in pokespeak, shaking her head. "Victini says she saw someone who might've been Lillie. We were just going to try and find her when we came across you two. Wanna join us?" White offered.

Moon shifted awkwardly at White's acknowledgement. It felt so weird being talked about in front of her friend and idol while hidden... let alone hidden inside another girl. The thought was enough to make her shift around... rather futilely at the hand touching and patting her from outside... Well at least White was hinting at it and not being forward. She'd rather not too much attention be brought to her right now. She did not say anything... since there was no point trying to communicating like this at the moment.
Meanwhile Nebby stopped at the sight of the Wooloo. It was in a combat stance and seemed to be swaggering to her in preparation for a duel.( "You approach me?!") The moon bat scree'd in... a light hearted manner as it spread it's wings to show it's moon like wings in full... she was an easily distracted Legendary.( "... A blonde with another Pokemon? Oh! I know who it is! Nebby Jr~! Nebby Jr~! Nebby Jr~!") the moon scree'd in song as it danced around Victini... well it was optimistic at least.
Hau just... blinked a couple of times as White was trying to talk around what was going on with Moon. Somewhere warm... but she could hear and speak to them? And there were going to be muffled voices because of that? But she didn't even say where Moon was! (Although it was good she ate beforehand. Maybe Moon was hungry though?) This was confusing; is this how adults talk to each other? Hau thought that adults like to talk, but if this was how they do it, then Hau wasn't sure he wanted to grow up. Blue's question jogged Hau out of his head for a moment, and the young man mustered a smile. "...Nah, I'm good. I had a big breakfast! And I think I got ya, White! We gotta find Lillie soon before it gets too dark."
Hau's stomach growled again. The young man laughed and scratched the back of his head sheepishly. Truth was, he was starving. But... Lillie probably was more hungry. So... The Malasadas he brought should go to everyone else, and especially Lillie. Then he could eat.
The Wooloo bleated at the massive Legendary showing no fear; rather it radiated massive amounts of confidence. ("I can't beat the living tar out of you without getting closer, Zubat-Face,") it replied, stepping forward towards the giant Bat Pokemon. It's distracted turn to speak about some Nebby Jr. made the Wooloo roll it's eyes. ("Yare Yare Baaaaaaaaaaze... So this Lillie chick is still alive, huh? Good, the free-loader was getting worried.") Did... Did it mean Hau?!? What a rude Wooloo!
Hau glanced down at his Coolshades Wooloo seemingly "talking" with Lunala and grinned. "Eh, Lolo, you meeting Nebby, huh? I betcha Nebby can help us find Lillie sooner than later." The Wooloo glanced up at Hau, his shades revealin it eyes to show a skeptical glance at his trainer. Hau laughed a bit, before coughing lightly. "So, uh... Which way do we wanna head out? I think we should stay together this time, though. I don't wanna get sick like Moon... Also cuz I get the feeling there ain't much more room in the place you put Moon... Also, where is Moon, exactly? Cuz y'know, you were kind of dancing around where she actually was and now I don't know..."

"--It couldn't hurt." White replied rather thoughtfully in response to sticking together. If they already had a clue as to where Lillie was, splitting up had lots its purpose. "Victini said she saw someone over this way, so I guess we just have to follow her for a bit longer and hope we find Lillie. As for Moon..." White explained and began, only to trail off for a moment. She really did prefer being forward. It seemed like Hau hadn't even understood her. Ah well. "...She's warming up and resting inside my belly." White somewhat hesitantly explained, lightly gesturing to her round mid-section. "So I'm actually very full. But I can carry her, and I'll take good care of her. So let's focus on finding Lillie before we lose her trail." White continued to explain.
("It's high noon...") Victini chimed into the conversation between the two pokemon in her best impression of an action movie hero delivering a one liner. ("...Sorry. I thought we were doing something else. The human I saw was this way!") Victini ushered, waving and moving to lead the way!

A good few minutes travel away, spotted earlier by Victini, a familiar figure could be seen wandering about the beach, her head hanging low and starvia bugs fluttering about her head, a light aura of starvia beginning to hang about her. “...Nebby? You're still with me, right?” Lillie asked, seeking an anchor. She looked to the nearby pokemon, but merely seeing him wasn't enough to reassure her. She'd learned not to trust her eyes and ears as her infection worsened. They often showed her things that weren't real, or distorting her vision in frightening ways. She'd taken to closing them for long periods of time to give herself some respite from the distressing hallucinations. Nebby Jr. did a little dance in the air in front of Lillie, a bit more resilient to the starvia than their trainer. (“Sure I am~! How're you feeling, Lady?”) Nebby Jr replied, not that Lillie could understand them. Lillie smiled weakly, reaching out to lightly brush a hand across the top of Nebby Jr's body. “...I don't think I'm getting any better.” Lillie apologetically remarked. (“--What do you mean?”) Nebby Jr. replied. “...And I don't have any idea how to get back home--or anywhere safe. I'm sorry...” Lillie finished apologizing. “...”

Hau being... very slow to realize the point in asking where she was did not strive off her embarrassment at this situation anymore... Still, the thought of White protecting her and... trying to preserve her dignity somewhat clicked with her somehow... She loved all the girls that have became a champion in some way but since meeting White she has felt.. special in a way that was harder to describe. She respected and found inspiration in Blue but it wasn't the same kind of drive and joy she got from being around White. She also always had this effect that made her more... nervous than she usually is around other girls. Her confidence was built and strengthened over time, it was usually hard to shake but White made it easy... Hm... maybe it's a bad time for self-reflection and self-diagnosis. All that really matters is the thought of White taking care of her was enough to make this experience... less horrible.
At the Victini chiming in Nebby decided to... glance upwards for a moment. Now Li was not exactly full of nutritious light to devour but she likes to think she has a good perception of time as a creature of the night. ("I think it's more evening, actually...") Nebby deduced... not being the most familiar with westerns. Moon tended to watch a lot more Anime stuff since she was from Kanto and it was like a look back. And clearly so was the Wooloo! It's a match made on... wherever they are! ("Oh right! Lillie and Nebby Jr! Let's go!") the bat scree'd in understanding. "Hey! Tell Nebby to not run off!" Moon attempted to call out... Assuredly Nebby was trying to pull ahead of Victini despite not knowing where she's going.
("Lillie! Jr!") A cosmic scree sounded as the bat of the moon was trying to lead the charge once again. However she stopped after a moment, noticing something. Now she wasn't a doctor, that was Moon's thing, but she did have access to Moon's research notes when she was watching Moon study. And this looked like one of them artist depictions of the Starvia sickness... except a bit less... dramaticized. Too bad the actual doctor was a bit cooped up at the moment and Nebby wasn't exactly licensed for diagnosis. Instead of charging in recklessly she decided to follow White's and Moon's guidance from earlier and hang by White in case she had to actually listen to her trainer for once.

Blue paused for a moment. Well, if they were going to be open about this she supposed it wouldn't hurt. She leaned over and placed a hand on White's stomach, lightly patting Moon through it.“Well! I can't think of a safer place to hide away while we finish the search.” Blue fondly remarked, reassuring Moon that they'd continue the search with her.
Why don't you become one of my pokemon? A cutie like you would be a perfect fit for my team~! Think about it, okay?

White sort of lightly jogs to keep up. She wasn't going to try and run or sprint because she was sheltering a life inside of her and she wanted to keep the bouncing to a comfortable minimum. "--Nebby wait up! You're worrying Moon." White called out.
As they actually reach Lillie though, White slow to a stop and takes a very deep breath. "...It looks like we found someone, maybe Lillie? Blonde girl, white clothes, green eyes, pink backpack... skirt..." White described for Moon as she cautiously approached Lillie. "--Hey!! Are you Lillie??" White called out as she approached, trying to get Lillie's attention.
Post by Pokémon Trainer Lillie on Nov 4, 2020 10:46:49 GMT -8
Contrary to White's calling to get her attention, Lillie barely even recognized there was another person. More odd voices trying to get her attention? At least this one wasn't calling her mean things. She actually just walks right into White, also blind because the starvia had already taken her eyesight from her more or less. It's only once she bumps into White, very lightly squishing Moon in the process, that she even recognizes she isn't alone. Huh?? What the--She'd probably be upset about touching something big and squishy like that if she weren't already dealing with much bigger discomforts.
“--Huh??” Lillie remarked in confusion. ...No, this was just her losing her mind. Better keep walking, following her single minded desire for a city or something that could rescue her.
(“...Help! Mama needs help!!”) Nebby Jr. cried out in a rather sickly fashion. She wasn't doing so great either. She was of course referring to Lillie there, as she was the one who actually hatched her egg. But she was at least coherent enough to be aware of the world around herself, whereas Lillie was on death's door.

White carefully steps in front of Lillie, grasping the smaller girl by the shoulders to hold her in place. She was mildly afraid Lillie might hit her, but... Lillie looked like she hit like a sissy even when she wasn't very sick, so she wasn't that afraid. "--Uh, Moon? I don't think Lillie knows where she is right now. I might need a little help getting through to her." White hesitantly remarked.
Post by Coolshaymin on Nov 4, 2020 11:08:29 GMT -8
Moon blushed at the comment from Blue, geeze, this was so embarrassing... Nebbie slowed down a bit at White's call... Oh yeah that was right. She had to stick around and listen to White's instructions. The moon bat floated at pace. ("... Lillie? Lillie? Lillie?") Nebby floated around the girl as... she seemed like she could not even notice her. "Yeah, that sounds exactly like Lillie..." Moon spoke up.
Moon was then suddenly squished lightly by someone bumping into them... that stung a little but Moon kept her lip shut. "... She can't tell where she is? She might be in worst condition than I thought she'd be... if we don't do something she will be completely lost..." Moon commented in concern. "... Stay near her. I'm going to try and call out..." Moon decided after a moment. She had little dignity left as is but if it was choosing between her pride and a close friend... well, it was no contest. "Lillie! It's me, Moon! Can you hear me? This might seem weird but I promise you it's real! A few of my friends and Nebby have come to rescue you! Anything you do, do not wander! Please!" Moon tried to call out as she pressed a hand forward.. Nebby looked to Nebby Jr before back to Lillie... well she wanted to get close to Jr but she knew who needed more help. Nebby moved toward Lillie to brush her head against her, trying to get her attention that she was here too.

White made a point to get a bit closer to Lillie, cautiously closing what little distance remained so that they'd be as close as possible. She doubted anyone could be more than five feet from her and still understand Moon through her tummy. She took notice of a hand bump appearing as Moon pressed outward. Oh--That felt so cool! ...Er, she was thankful she didn't say that aloud, but she returned the gesture by lightly rubbing her tummy around where she felt it, teasing around Moon's fingertips. Normally she'd be a little less handsy with herself in front of others, but she felt like not being acknowledged would make the experience unpleasant for Moon, and her comfort mattered a little more than her manners.
Lillie was quiet for a good moment as Moon called out to her, momentarily confused. “...Moon..?” She hesitantly asked. Lillie kinda wobbled unsteadily as she tried to look downward without understanding why Moon sounded as if she were below her. Perhaps it was just a trick of her hearing... “Y-You came to rescue me...” she softly blurted out, quickly becoming emotional. More than anyone else, Moon had been who she wanted to see the most. Lillie lurched forward again in a searching fashion, stumbling off balance into White's arms and embracing her, inadvertently squishing Moon between them. She kinda bonked her forehead against the brim of White's hat in the process, which was weird because hey new hat, but she didn't think much of it. She had too much else going through her head and heart. “I'm sorry. I was so wrong about being ready to be a trainer. I made a big mi-mistake leaving you...” Lillie softly sobbed. It seemed that surviving her ordeal had crushed her self-confidence.

White was taken by surprise as she found herself mistaken for Moon, shifting her hips underneath Moon and kinda bending over a bit to try and give her a bit more room so that she wasn't squished between them so much. But well... She couldn't say no to the hug either. Poor Lillie. So she just kinda held Lillie for a bit, soothingly rubbing her back and sides in an attempt to get her to calm down so that they could stop squishing Moon. But it seemed like she definitely needed a moment. Moon could feel White's heartbeat begin to race a little in response. “Uh--” White softly murmured, unsure if Moon wanted to do the talking or if she should.

Moon felt the tracing for a moment as the attention pleased her a bit. It felt nice... Which made her blush and retract her hand. These feelings were too weird for her to grasp. She knew she had a crush on White but this situation was not normal even for girlfriends!... Which they weren't... Will White even be able to consider her one after this-Thoughts for another time.
She was thankful she did though as suddenly being squished by Lillie would of hurt a lot more if her hand was still there. She really wanted to be outside right now but understood she was still in no state to as White tried to make sure she was not too squished by her friend. Moon just listened to Lillie for a moment... She felt so powerless right now. She wanted to comfort Lillie but knew in this state that wasn't possible... physically.
".... Of course I did. I could never turn my back when you're in danger... However, you're wrong about something. One mistake like this does not mean you're not fit to be a trainer. I may of started pretty good but I was practicing long before I came to Alola. I made mistakes, lots of them. I know me and Hau were both feeling bad when we let you get captured. However you won't ever succeed if you stay down when you fall. You need to get back up and keep trying again until you're able to succeed," Moon replies before pausing... this one was a bit more personal.
"... I know it's easier to do that when someone is there to lift you up though. So keep trying and if you ever feel you need help or advice, I'm here for you. I should of made sure you were more ready. I did not know this'd happen..." she adds a bit of guilt as well. "First I need you to come back with me though. If you're untreated too long the results could be really bad."
