If Ciri were a morning person, she may have been perceptive enough to spot the cat hairs near the driver’s seat, on her sheets. If Ciri were an organised person, she may have seen the few black hairs on the dashboard, and recognised them as belonging to a cat.
If— but she was neither of the two, and her morning ritual of turning around to rest a bit more made most of said hairs end up on the ground anyway.
She rose earlier than usual, as she’d gone to bed earlier than usual (too early to her liking, but what can you do with a bunch of children in bed). Hardly any attention is payed to the three guests (they aren’t even registered) in the back when she stretches out, slouches outside to splash some water in her face & completely (if such a thing is possible at eight in the morning) wake up. Buckets she always places outside when it rains— used it to wash herself, even cook when there was no river in sight. The rain had thankfully stopped mostly by now— save for a few pathetic drops, the aftermath of those huge black clouds last night.
When she enters again with damp crown & moist, splashing steps, one of her buckets is in her arms, and then her eyes spot the already awoken girl.
"Wash," She voices, pointing at the water. "C-cer—eal. Or fruit." Pointed at the cooling box, the plastic bowls and box of cereal next it.Simple words, simple orders— though they were not meant as such, just instructions on where to find everything, in case they needed & wanted to use them.
"Clean, up. L-leave by ten." She counted on Kanashii to repeat her instructions to her brothers later, since she definitely won’t.
She quickly scurries around trough her brothers, waking both of them receiving a single grunt from the wolf, while the human sat up, golden eyes squirming as his first seconds from this day. While he remained on stand by, breathing countless times to wake himself up but giving up to lay down again, the cat girl was tempted to touch literally everything in that van. She’s seen vehicles before, but she’s never been inside one, and it was even more interesting because look at this thing!
Hands behind her back, Kanashii quietly took another tour trough the van when she heard its owner coming back, giving a short glance to see Ken motioning for her to sit down beside him. She did so, having her mind starting to clear with the few seconds until Ciri walked in the van. “Morning.”
Black eyes were rubbed once or twice as the instructions followed. She nodded countless times with each information. “Alright. Thank you Ciri.” Despite the tremendous storm that washed over them the last night and the trades made to keep the brothers with a shelter, Kanashii was not very hungry. She became used not to eat for a long time, stomach pain wasn’t something she worried about often.
The cat girl took a hold of the redhead’s collar and pulled softly to make him stand with her so they could both clean themselves. Robba would probably wake up right before they leave. He’s the one who’s been awake for more time, after all.
It took them about ten minutes to get cleaned and dressed, so while the middle brother prepared their package to continue their travel, Kanashii did what her curiosity desired: getting to know about new people. A few moments standing beside the driver answer a look in her eyes would do.
"Where do you come from, Ciri? Do you have a house? This car’s got vists before me and my brothers????"
