Breathing heavily, Nathan slumped down against the wall onto the tile of the employee bathroom. He wiped his face, sweaty and covered with a few minor cuts. The weasel had chewed on his arms and scratched up his face something fierce, but nothing serious. He was just playing around... mostly. Kyo was resting on the other side of the room, panting similarly. The human had put up a fair fight of running around the bathroom and waving his arms about As the very least they had worn each other out. After a minute or so of rest, Nathan rubbed his face against his arm and noticed some blood there. "You don't... have rabies... do you?" Nathan asked. Kyo didn't respond. It might've been because Kyo's vocabulary seemed rather limited at this point, even mentally, but Kyo probably didn't know what rabies or other zoonotic diseases were. Nathan sighed, and forced himself to stand up and walk over to the sink. He looked in the mirror. Noticeable, but not too bad. No black eyes or anything, just a little blood. He turned on the faucet, and pooled some water in his hands to splash on his face.
It froze, obviously. Oh, right, THAT. Nathan had almost forgotten about that.
Nathan tossed the ice chunk away and decided to go find a first-aid kit. However, when he opened the bathroom door and walked back into the storeroom, he noticed someone he didn't recognize, who wasn't wearing one of the coffee shop aprons. Very long hair, and bearded, probably a hobo that had wandered into the back of the store and was now opening the garage for some reason.
"Hey, guy, you can't be in here!" Nathan shouted, pointing his finger menacingly and approaching. He was too late though, and the garage door was already opening quickly, revealing a bear and a bobcat, and their companions. While Nathan had seen the bear, after the freezing magic and attacking weasel, he had almost forgotten about it! And now the bear was there, with a friend, and probably about to kill them. Nathan started stammering a little, taking a small step backwards, trying to back away slowly.
~Calm. Similar.~ Said Kyo, hopping out of the bathroom before climbing up Nathan's back and onto his shoulder.
"What, are they ferrets?"
~fool. Here to help.~ Kyo replied.
Nathan took a deep breath. "Well I guess I already got magic and an animal sidekick, so whatever!" Nathan murmured to himself. Then he said speaking to the people that just showed up in the garage door, "Well, hurry up and come inside, but I sure hope you all have an explanation ready if the cops find us."
