The two lie somewhere in the territory, purpose unknown. Roman, fighting the urge to fall asleep, lazily blinks up at those puffy, white things at the edges of his vision. Clouds, aren't they? Clouds sprawl across the wide blue above them; some are cautious drifters, others are smooth sailors, and still others seem to race breakneck across the sky. The sky is an ocean today, washed with cloud-spotted sunshine and cerulean watercolor. His eyes are permanently darkened in shadow, but they still find the brilliant daylight almost blinding—it's just that nice of a day. They were supposed to out on a patrol today. Something like checking up on the vortex those Ruiners fell out of, right? His strained eyes rest themselves on the grass beneath them, and they're forced to blink away drowsiness before thinking any further. Ah, they've decided to just pick this spot to sit on...for surveillance. There's an ache in his belly, familiar stresses trying to push their way through from both their zombies and the Ruiners. It seems rather far away right now.
Self-care counts as productivity too, he's sure. He stifles a yawn with the paw he lays on, letting out a tiny huff of laughter instead. "How high have you ever flown?" the fox muses. While his head doesn't shift to the golden boy next to him, his eyes do, casual, curious. Content. If the Ruiners intended to attack, he wagers it'd be a little later than today. Besides, they're in a nice position to leap to their paws and warn the others if something did happen.
