You glance up as well, wincing a bit at all of the damage. “I’m re4lly, re4lly 5orry 4bout th4t….” At least the view was pretty? Now that you were not hurtling past them at vicious speeds, you could appreciate the beauty of the land’s aurora borealis. It reminded you of your own land.
However, his next question drew you out of the mesmerizing colors and forcefully dragged you back to the current issue. It hits you like a ton of bricks and suddenly you are on your feet, perhaps even accidentally knocking the other two over in your haste. The remaining ice clinging to you crackles to the floor in a frost and even as you wince in pain, you are looking around for the door.
"I- 4gh… I-I h4ve 2 go b4ck! I need 2 help him! Evvie… E-Evvie will kill him!!" You exclaim fearfully, mismatched eyes wide with worry. It has already been so long; what if it was too late? What if Rua had already killed Hev and was now tracking you down? Oh Kringlefucker! "You’re in d4nger, I need 2 le4ve-"
You don’t have much of anything to say before she’s on her feet, which, did in fact, knock you and Romeo back. The cat-like fandom makes a choked hissing noise as he falls back, his tail bushing up under him, both things you’d later tease him about. But not right now.
"Woah, woah, woah, okay, slow down, Candycane." Romeo says while sitting up, much to your surprise.

That doesn’t scream safe. Also, you’re still recoverin’, so I’m not lettin’ you go anywhere, no matter who you’re talkin’ about."

"I think what he means is," You start, "is that we might be more compliant if we can have a little more explanation. What’s the danger supposed to be, and who’s ‘Evvie’?" Romeo narrows his eyes at you and looks ready to protest, but you shake your head and glare back at him.
The nickname catches your attention, but it is those snapping fingers that finally get you to focus your gaze back on the talking kitty. However, you are obviously still in panic mode, nearly to the point of hyperventilating as concern and worry flood your system. In all honesty, you almost look like a spooked horse, ready to bolt at any given moment.
"B-but you h4ve 2! He need5 me! He c4n’t t4ke him on 4lone, he’ll be killed!!" You argue immediately and without hesitation, almost moving to push past him when Furry speaks up. It is enough to make you pause and switch focus to him, but before you can answer his question there is a loud-
