Booking it with the group
Unless Shadow makes any moves to disengage from Marrise's hand, the little girl will continue to hold onto her. In fact, she prattles on to the poor tired wolf-child.
"My name's Marrise. Though you can call me 'Mari' for short if you'd like- that's what my lil'sisters do. This has been just an awful day, hasn't it? I'm sure it'll come out fine."
Shooting Shadow a grin she continues. "I can supposedly manipulate fire, but I can't generate it like you can. My teachers say I'll have to learn to control it, but the last time I tried it just ate part of my dress-OOF!"
She grunted as they picked up the pace unexpectedly. 'Bought time he snapped out of it' she thought, letting herself be dragged (and dragging Shadow along too if she's still attached).
Marrise took a moment to glance over Jean and Frank. 'More students. And another talking animal on two legs. There are a lot of those in this group...' She thought, giving each of them a nod in turn as they pass.
By now Myra has caught up and made eye contact. The pale girl just smirks and rolls her eyes in response. She isn't paying much attention to anyone besides Matt, since if she didn't watch him she wasn't sure where they were going.
"Hey, do you know where the bunker is?" She asked at the two arguing leaders. "'Cause that would be good to know right now. Don't know if we could pull what we did back there a second time."
