Setting: East Hallways
Time: Night 005, shortly after Alphonse splits up with the hounds
Summary: Alphonse runs into some trouble on the way back to Red XIII, Lorenzo comes and help him out? Then they have...a talk. :|
Warnings: Some violence
Alphonse had split up with the hounds not long before, deciding to...control himself, and get back upstairs, to Nanaki - Nanaki had been asleep when he left, and he really didn't want his friend to wake up, find him missing and worry about where he went...so hopefully he could get back and get away with it. So that was why he had tried to apologise to the hounds, before turning to dash off.
But perhaps, when Alphonse had split up with the hounds, he should have considered a few things.
That was probably why he was now standing in the middle of the hallway, posed in something...that was somewhere between his typical battle stance, and the posture of an animal ready to lunge for its prey. He couldn't see them, of course, but he could hear them and smell them, and even though he had before...they'd left him alone, before, but now he...could tell. They were running toward him, and he wasn't sure how to react -
And so he lunged, too scared to do anything else, tying to bite at the strange, humanoid monsters he couldn't see, even as it hurt - the flesh and muscle at the corners of his mouth continuing to rot and tear as he spread the bones wider, revealing even more teeth than before.
