He wished that he was better able to understand this language better. Latin was the superior language according to his parents, but he heard the common tongue when he spied on many others, and this girl here! Why not teach him the common tongue better? He didn’t quite understand, but he had to do his best right now.
Her scowl in reaction to his words hurts him more than he likes. He liked it when she smiled and was perky, and apparently the way he talked...took that away, even for a moment. She speaks kind of fast and he tries to put together what she says….something about teaching her, perhaps teaching her Latin. He then nods excitedly, at least excited for what he thinks she wants.
”Yes, teach. You, teach also, common tongue to me?” he asked, head tilting slightly. He does not really know how to teach her Latin, or how she can teach him, but he was sure he would figure it out. When she did talk about the tongues, he did not quite understand, and his green eyes mirrored the confusion of her words. But the adult was here, and he knew that adults had all the power. He didn’t want to displease the adult and get chased off from his new friend, and Lucia then bumps into his shoulder, he felt and young energy flow through his black and copper form, as she asked what kind of name it was. He finds himself perking up a bit, a smile crossing on his muzzle.
”Er, Aeon- mean life,” he explains, looking to her with his tail starting to wag high behind him.
”Lucia- mean light,” he says, his eyes bright with her image as he does so. He was indeed a clumsy boy right now- destined to be a large boy from his line, and not grown into himself. He uses her shoulder to right himself, and he felt he could hang out here forever.
”Play- ludere,” he says, repeating the common word with the Latin word, hoping that she understand and connected the two. Lucia did not seem too concerned with the adult, so perhaps they could have fun indeed! She asks about...eat, if he was going to eat, her, and he found it an odd question and wondered if he heard it right. He scowled himself, shaking his head.
”No eat- ludere!” he says as she paws his shoulder, her giggle ringing in his ear as she started to bound away. He was not about to let that angelic voice leave his ears! He chases after her, his form bouncy but still clumsy on the rocks. He manages to get closer to her, and he certainly did not hold her grace, but he threw his muzzle out and reach out for the tip of the tail. He hopped to grab onto it gently, and tug her back towards him. He would then try to pounce on her back end, so he could nip at her ear. If he does not get a hold of her tail, he would simply just attempt the pounce ear nip- if his clumsy body will let him!
