As Malik moved to sit down, Haiiro did as well for now. A few small signs were given to both Shadow and Steel, the latter widening his circle to keep an eye on the Fraxture while the prior quick to come back towards Haiiro again. After that though, Haiiro sat down across from Malik and allowed his Umbreon to climb right up in his lap. She happily folded into that dark coat and mumbled a few tones to herself.
It's nice when a Pokemon is a long time friend. Haiiro's gaze raised to Malik again, and a subtle curl of his lips was given before a nod was. He could guess as much that he meant Steel, but Shadow had been with him for nearly as long. She was his second Pokemon raised as an Eevee, and he adored her closeness and relished in her regular comforts. Whereas he had trouble expressing himself from time to time, she did not have any trouble reading and understanding the subtle shifts in his body that made up the bulk of his 'expressions'. She took pride in what she knew, pride in how close she was with Haii. Maybe just a little too much pride, but whatever right?
The lull in the 'conversation' was vaguely nice for Haiiro. Both eyes closed, and he simply drew in the touch of warmth from above and the subtle shifts in the air. It was comforting and compelling to be in silence from time to time, and he always did find he could think clearer this way. It would be upwards of fifteen minutes before Steel's call had Haiiro jolting some. Clearly he and the still nameless Fraxure come across something, but who knew if it would really be of interest.
Shadow could already feel Haii moving, was quick to leap off his lap and look around with him. The Skarmory in the distance was a good beacon for where they needed to be. Looking back to Malik, Haii gave a quick few hand signs only to stop and remember that this one didn't know them. Fishing out his pad of paper, he wrote out a simple word: Pokemon before showing it and starting in that general direction.
