Capper let loose a sigh, holding out his gloved hand. Little droplets of water splattered across his palm slowly as the darkened clouds above began to let loose a drizzle. The weather did report for a ten-percent chance of rain, which would be followed by a storm. That was a chance Capper mistakenly brushed aside, it seemed.
The messy saiyan male rolled up a long blueprint he had laid out on the park bench, slipping a whitened pencil back behind his ear. The saiyan turned, eyeing his bags and bags of purchased mechanisms, gears, and gizmos, all of course being used to build his newest masterpiece that was detailed on the blueprint. No longer would he we weak and stepped upon by tyrants and terrors like Xylo or the Solar Empire- maybe, just maybe, he'd be able to manage for himself now that he as planning to...
A beep tore Capper from his thoughts. "Hey, Alphs. Doin' good?" The saiyan cooed, leaning down and eyeing the small floating sphere drone beside him. Alpha's green eye locked onto Capper- the little robot, Alpha, just adjusted a leaf he was holding to keep himself clean of any stray raindrops, beeping back to Capper. The saiyan undertsood the gibberish beeps, putting a hand to his chin. "Yes, yes, I'm fine. Don't worry." Capper tried to reassure his longtime friend. "Let's just try and get home before the storm hits, alright? I bet Retsu's starting movie night without us by now."
Capper found it hard to believe, but... He seemed to be feeling a little better now? The loss of what was essentially his whole central family left a permanent hole in the saiyan's heart, but... His parents wouldn't want him to feel down for this long, but still, his heart was aching and empty even despite their wishes from the Afterlife. Perhaps he really was getting better-- or he just became better at masking his growing melancholy.
Capper picked up his pace through the spiraling rain as it began to increase in bulk, holding a bag full of snacks and goodies for his Baoflix marathon later while Alpha carried the bags of technology with his telekinetic abilities. The saiyan nearly lost his rushed footing ona puddle, feet splaying apart as if he had slipped on ice. Luckily the weakling somehow caught himself, grabbing onto a nearby bench with his snack bag in his teeth. Alpha whirred in concern, only earning a muffled grunt from his creator. "I'm fine, I'm okay, we're good, we're good!" Capper stood back up straight, shaking himself dry of the rain. A clap of thunder caught him off guard, causing his hair to spike with a vigorous flinch.
"...Okay, Alpha. Plan B." Capper bluntly spoke, glancing about. His partner questiningly buzzed, earning another response from the saiyan weakling. "Just follow my lead- I will NOT get everything back in one piece in this weather."
Making a mad dash as more thunder roared and rain began to pour, Capper lunged under a canopy of a neaby lodge of some sort, sucking in a deep breath of relief. He pulled a few stray strands of brown hair away from his face, spitting out some water as well. Alpha hopped right over, setting their goodies down beside a bench. "...So I guess we just wait this out then, huh?" Capper smiled weakly back to the Plexbit drone.
Sitting down on the bench while wringing out his hair, Capper's eyes trailed to the suspended sign hanging right near the building he was taking shelter beside. 'Cherry Valley Loft', it read. Oddly enough, the name rung a distant bell in Capper's mind, though he couldn't put a finger on where he heard the name before. Nonetheless, the saiyan sighed, putting a hand on his little drone buddy as the robot curled up and nestled into the soaking saiyan's lap. "...Love you, bud." Capper smiled, genuinely for once. Alpha beeped back-- though his gibberish was only translatable by Capper, just about anyone could make his words out as a 'Love you too.'
