Greed is Like a Little Pet
(AUdrey) "There's plenty of places like that, if you don't mind hunting for animals yourself. I... I'm really glad to hear you're in. We might not all know one another well, b-but... we need to look out for each other against our common enemy." She pauses to stoop and pick up the empty bag, aiming to throw it out later. "I'll be s-seeing you, all right, Ave? I'll bring you coloring supplies and more food next time. Bye," she says on her way out, locking him in again to avoid suspicion.

"See ya’ ginger." Ave growls after her, settling down for a nap, satisfied at least for the moment. A grin spreads across his face, showing his teeth again,

"I’ll be looking forward to your next visit."

Sorry, gotta pop right in or Ghost will see me. Anyway here, I got you one *hold Thneed out to him*

*He perks up and slinks across the floor, sniffing at it before snatching it from her hands and scampering away with it. He sniffs it again, burying his face in it, and then wraps is around his neck with a grin.*

Niiiccceee, its really soft! I’ve never felt anything this soft before! This is great! Hahaha!

*pops in* Hey Ava! Guess what I got for you!

*hiss in surprise and skitters away to a corner of his cell, teeth bared*

Don’t do that! You know I coulda’ ripped your head off! Now what’d ya’ bring me…?

(AUdrey) "Oh, well, that's good," she murmurs in regards to his interaction with Ted, but then she sighs. "I was afraid of that. W-what would you say if... i-if I were working on a plan to break you out of here?" she asks cautiously. "I-I've been trying to make keys for everyone, a-and then... we would have to mutiny against G-Ghost, or else he'll come after us, b-but... we'd be free. We can't live around people, but at least we could find a place to live our own way, in peace. Are you in?"

Avarice stared at her for a long moment, just chewing on mouthful after mouthful of meat, the tip of his tail twitching. Then he stood up, stretching out all his legs, and tossed the empty bag back at her feet. A sneer stretched across his face, his bloodstained fangs showing as he grinned,

"Sounds like fun, gingerbutt. As long as there’s a place to go with plenty of food, I’m game. Anything to screw Mister Ghost over…"

(AUdrey) "O-okay, yeah, I can definitely get those things. I'll give them to you the next time I visit, all right? In the meantime, I w-was wondering... have you been seeing or speaking to any of the other experiments? And Ghost... how has he been acting in general s-since I... left?" she wonders aloud, keeping a safe distance but peering over at him intently.

Avarice cocks his head to the side, tearing a chunk from the meat and staring at her as he eats. Then he swallows and says,

"Yeah, I talked to Ted. He’s kinda whimpy but he’s got some cool books. Ain’t talked to anybody else ‘cause they’re dumbbutts and I’ve got better things to do."

His eyes narrow at the mention of Ghost and he hisses, “He’s been an ass and he always has been. Nothin’ new. I hate him.” A shudder rippled through his thin frame and he bit down into the meat again, tearing into it with a viciousness to hide his fright.

(AUdrey) She shrinks back and adverts her gaze, reaching for a bag she has. "I brought chocolate-chip cookies... and meat, c-courtesy of Moirin. I thought you m-might like both." She produces it and hands it to him meekly. Of all the experiments, she's always been weary of 6R-33D, because if he truly wanted to, he could undo her stitching and rip her to pieces in an instant with those strong, multiple limbs of his. But she's hoping they'll be friends instead. "Is there a-anything else you need?"

Avarice grins and snatches the bag from her, digging through the contents. He sniffs at one of the cookies, nibbles on it, and then jams it into his mouth, followed quickly by another. 

He sets his back sections down, tail curling around him, and watches her as he continues to greedily stuff his face, speaking through mouthfuls of cookie crumbs,

"More crayons! And markers! And colorin’ books! Oh, and meat!" He adds, pulling out a hunk of the stuff and licking his lips eagerly, "As much as you can bring me. I’m always hungry…"

(AUdrey) "H-hey, um... I hope you won't actually bite me? I brought you some food... I'm trying to go around and help as many of the experiments as I can until I figure out a way to free everyone. But for now, I-I can bring things to you. H-how are you, by the way, Ave? P-probably bored, I know... Did you want anything to help with that? I c-could find something to entertain you, and sneak it back to you," she murmurs as she uses her copied key to slip into his cell.

Ave perks up, his twin stomachs growling at the smell of food and his long tongue lolling out to lick at his lips. He slinks across the floor, stopping a few feet away from her, his lips curled back to show his teeth.

"Gimmie the food, gingerbutt, then we’ll talk," He grumbles, grasping at the air with all four hands.

BORED!

*pops in*  When are you not bored?

*grins, showing all his sharp teeth* When I’m eating.

So when you’re eating or drawing you’re not bored.  Gonna guess that you don’t want either right now or you wouldn’t be bored.

*hisses* I don’t have anymore crayons, they’re all little useless stubs that I can’t color with! And Mister Ghost hasn’t FED ME YET! 

I’M HUNGRY!
