It's a hatching day in Primary Village! What new friends will hatch today?
She...isn't sure she likes being bumped into?
Next time it tries it she will HOP.
She hops over its ears!
She lands on its rigid tail, flipping it over sideways and throwing her landing off somewhat as well.
"Choro. Choro," it beeps plaintively, from its position balanced on side, ear, and tail.
She attempts to nudge it over and upright.
With a little experimentation she can figure out where to throw her weight to flip it back over.
"Choro," it beeps, and it rolls on the way it had been going.
She eats some more grass.
Grass! Delicious grass! Over enough grass the airy taste goes down, but the fresh taste persists.
Eventually the winged blob leaves off eating and starts hopping again, flapping its wings.
The airy taste was the BEST PART, though. Once the airy taste goes away she starts hopping and wiggling again too.
Her leaves must be bigger now, or they catch the air better - she can nudge herself around in the air with them! They can get her some more height and air time, or she can push herself to the side of where she had been going to land.
!!! She will hop SO HIGH.
She LIKES hopping!!! Hop hop hop.
Her hopmate experiments with variety in hops - long hops, sideways hops, hops with flips.
(Around them, eggs continue to hatch, and other blobs try other explorations.)
After a while, another blob comes hopping up. It's round and yellowish, with a big fin on its head.
She cannot flip, but she can do a sort of welcoming sideways hop?
It hops up and bites one of her leaves.
!!! She does not LIKE being BIT.
She wiggles her leaves furiously to dislodge the biter.
The finned blob, knocked back, giggles "bububu." It goes in for another bite.
No!!! She will HOP ON TOP OF IT.
This knocks the blob back and squishes it somewhat. It hesitates a moment, then bounces off crying.
...That's not fair. It bit her, she was just defending herself!!! Why is it crying?
She hops off after it.
A much bigger red creature walks up alongside her, matching her pace and keeping out of its paw range.
When she reaches the crying finned blob she bites a piece of grass off the ground and nudges it towards it.
The sobbing creature takes a moment to notice, but when it does it looks up and hesitantly nibbles at the offering. Then it cheers up somewhat and continues eating grass.
"Tsubu," it says.
(The red creature watches at a distance, still and low. The floaty blob is nowhere nearby; presumably the chase left it behind.)
"Nyoki!" she says brightly, then turns back to...
Where is floaty friend?
...Floaty friend is not here. She must have gone a ways.
Whoah! Big person???
She hops up to the larger creature. "Nyoki!" she chirps.
