That sounds like a dismissal. "Okay. Thank you, Mrs. Yoon."

For the next few days, Ninio tries to bother people as little as possible. He eats grass, because he isn't sure if he needs to eat to maintain his new body and wants to err on the safe side. He digs. He explores a little bit, but not very far, because it is scary. He avoids other animals. He sleeps a lot. 

It's very boring, but he likes boring. Interesting events tend to involve him being slapped in the face.

Amina is pretty sure she's got the hang of this flying thing, until there's a tree branch where her wing was supposed to go and then she's upside down and there's another tree branch right where her beak is and all of a sudden she's tumbling to the ground below.

"Are you all right?" Ninio says, before it occurs to him that if he talks to someone they might yell at him. 

Permalink

"Oh sorry for crashing near you, I think I'm okay,"

Amina starts to uncrumple herself but stops and lets out a panicked chirp when she tries to move her left wing. 

Permalink

"I didn't know people could get injured in Nirvana!"

Permalink

"I didn't either!" 

What if she tries walking. Oh no nope those toes are not supposed to feel that way at all

Permalink

"Uh, should we-- talk to someone?" He says this in approximately the same tone he'd say "challenge Asmodeus to a one-on-one duel."

Permalink

"Oh um... do you know someone to talk to?"

Permalink

"They said I should talk to Mrs. Yoon if I had any problems? Do you have someone you are supposed to talk to if you have problems?"

Permalink

"No? They just told me I'd find help when I needed it."

She tries to stand up slowly this time but her toes complain about that too and she falls down again, onto her back this time.

Permalink

Ninio has a sickening feeling that he is the help in question. 

"Should I... go fetch Mrs. Yoon?"

Permalink

"You don't have to? I can keep trying myself."

Amina tries to figure out how to wiggle so she flips back over without hurting her leg or wing.

Permalink

...okay that definitely seems like the sort of thing that will hurt her. But on the other hand he doesn't want to contradict her, because then she might get mad at him. 

Instead of doing anything, he goes tharn. 

Permalink

Amina wiggles around for a bit trying to get up before noticing that Ninio seems frozen.

"Are you okay?" 

Permalink

He stares at her, his eyes wide, unable to move. 

Permalink

Hrm, if she wiggles right she can scoot over on her back towards the frozen bunny.

"Do you want a hug?"

Permalink

"...sure?" he says anxiously. 

Permalink

Amina gives him a small soft hug with the wing that isn't hurting.

Permalink

Oh!

That's nice. 

"I haven't been hugged in years."

Permalink

"Oh... I actually don't think I've hugged anyone but myself for a while now."

Permalink

"You can hug yourself?"

Permalink

"Yeah, you just sorta wrap your arms around yourself and squeeze how tight of a hug you want."

Amina demonstrates on herself with her good wing.

"It works better when I'm not hurt like this."

Permalink

He tries this. 

"...I'm not sure bunny arms are long enough."

Permalink

"Hm...maybe if they were crossing each other and sorta hugging your front instead of wrapping around?"

Permalink

He tries this.

"That feels nice."
