Hachi is blushing again as Connor mentions Meridith possibly liking him any more than a normal customer. He replays the events in his head up to this point just to double check what all was said back and forth.
" Well, I did request a bit of good company. However.... I wouldn't mind it a bit if you were right on the mark, Connor. "
As they get to where the trees are, the winged-wolf walks around the stumps and looks over the fallen trunks a bit, surveying the area thoughtfully. He considers some options for a moment or two before looking back at the otter.
" I'll get the stumps up since it won't take long and may get a bit dirty. Then, after I scrub up, I'll clear the trunks. Where would you like the wood stacked? "
Once Hachi gets the answer he turns to face the first stump, looking over the lightning wound. He doesn't figure it will cause him any trouble. The trunk may be a different story. He puts a few good paces between himself and the stump then turns to look at it. He closes his eyes and concentrates, extending his telekinesis to feel out the root system. Soft crack sounds can be heard coming from underground as Hachi crushes the tree roots in several places, cutting them to make it easier to lift the stump. His plan is to leave about 70% of the roots in the ground to decompose.
Satisfied that he freed it up enough, the wolf opens his eyes. The deep brown eyes have a faint glow to them as they stare at the stump. The ground shudders as the roots still attached to the stump move toward the surface. Soon it all starts to break the surface and the stump rocks a bit to one side before ripping free and floating up several feet in the air. Seeming almost alive, the remaining attached roots crackle and pop as they curl up under the stump, clumps of dirt and pebbles and such raining down from them. Hachi gives Connor a smirk.
