From behind her, Zerori had sensed that Zuqetta had floated away with hardly any emotion left to feel besides the negativity that she knew her people were so sensitive to. Even her mother, whom had looked to Zerori with a gaze full of pity, had seemed to feel the same emotions she had. Yet, the sliver of hope that came with Ise following her was enough for Zerori to hold out that they weren’t done yet. The war, yes, but trying to find a place among this chaos…? The words of her offer echoed back at Zerori as she floated up into the air with her mother following suit and led all three of them back to safety.
Safety in the form of her home that she’d come back to time and time again, even if she’d come back to it alone. Landing on the ground and beckoning Zuqetta and Ise in, Zerori would glance at her mother to see an expression she wasn’t used to seeing. Guilt, maybe? Well… good. Better to be alive and guilty than dead and… I don’t know… She was still scared that she was about to lose everything in an instant back there. Her mother, her best friends, the promise she made-
Losing the war, in comparison, was worth more than trying to win it thanklessly.
“So, uhm… I’m hungry. Don’t look at me and say you guys aren’t, either,” She looked back at her friends, forcing a tired grin, “We’re all Saiyans, even if I’m part Demon. We can talk over food and then, I guess…” She hesitated, knowing that there would be things even they probably couldn’t fix in a day. “-We can go our separate ways, if that's what ya'll want...” It was hard to say, let alone admit to herself.
Her mother, trying to be helpful, was the next to chime in, “Charbroiled Screaminies?” She asked, earning a look of excited surprise from Zerori before she realized that Hellacasies may not be familiar to her mortal friends.
“They’re like… uhm… rabbits? I don’t know if you guys saw those on Earth, but they’re pretty good! NOT like Saiba-dogs,” She pointedly teased Zuqetta, hoping to at least get the ghost of a smile from her. To Ise, she’d add on, “It’s better than that cake I made for you, trust me. Mom is actually a pretty good cook.”
“It’s still magic, Zerori,” Zriracha piped in, preparing the spell.
“And it’s better than mine - shut up and take the compliment,” Zerori groaned in response, approaching the large table that they shared and making sure the other two chairs were offered to her friends. They, of course, were placed on either side of her and her mother - tactly separating Zuqetta and Ise in case things were… still tense. Upon the table, three reddish looking creatures that looked like a cross between a pig and a rabbit materialized on separate plates - blackened to perfection just the way Zriracha and Zerori liked it.
