Haggis felt a smile tug at his lips as he watched Audi attempt to juggle two apples in her paws. He did find it amusing, even if it was just a little flicker of happiness that bubbled up in his chest. It made him feel like an older brother, or something akin to that, teaching their younger sibling important life skills that would be needed for them to survive. They would grow up and learn these skills and become important people one day. When they did, you knew they would thank you one day, no matter how stressful learning that skill was. And there was that sense of pride Haggis could feel in his throat now.

Except, he was not an older brother.

And Audi was a completely different species from him.

And they were not related in any way at all.

But still, he felt it deep down somewhere.

"I know," He murmured, leaning down and taking Audi's hand in his own in a weak attempt to ease her claws off of the apple, "It was hard...really hard for me too. It takes a while." He took the apple from her claws and let it drop into her hands, wiping the apple juice that had dripped over parts of his fingers onto his jacket. He gave a warm smile to her as a chilly breeze blew past them. Standing up straight, Haggis looked around the vast array of fruit trees and vegetable roots, taking in their tantalizing and fragrant scent. "And if you feel like taking a break," He hummed almost half to himself, "We could always go and see what other kind of fruit is out there. There are a lot, and I bet they all taste good...if you want o-of course."

A disappointed pout was on her lips as she watched Haggis remove the apple, and as she caught it, she chomped down on it immediately as if in revenge for its lack of cooperation. Despite his reassuring words, she still seemed rather resentful as she chewed the fruit. It wasn't like she'd expected she'd succeed immediately, but somehow, it was still a slightly bitter feeling to just fail completely like that. The tip of her tail flicked in irritation. Oh well. She'd practice later, and she would master it eventually. She gave a firm nod, more to herself than to him, and looked up just in time to see him smile. She returned it as she stood up as well.

Her ears perked up at his suggestion. More fruit? There was no way to say no. Quickly, she bent over and picked a second apple to munch on as she looked around. To be honest, once she had found the herb garden, she hadn't even considered venturing further... And now, the trees and bushes around all seemed to hold promise of unspeakable, and edible, treasures. She gave a small squeak and bounced excitedly.

"Yes!" Her eyes flickered around as she seemed incapable of deciding which part of the garden to explore first. Finally, she looked to Haggis, almost pleading to make the decision in her place. "Where?!"

A smile graced his lips as Audi peered around. After a moment he peered up as well, green eyes searching the entire spanse of the garden to find just the right area for them to explore. It was a hard decision, he had to admit, with so many tall trees, various smells, and colorful fruits growing in abundance all around the two students. Taking in a deep breath of happiness, Haggis let his nose guide him to the best fruit amongst the trees. After a few moments, a delicious scent hit him and made his mouth water, making his eyes snap up and search for that one smell. Taking a few steps forward, he peered around amongst the trees until his eyes landed where his nose had led him. A grin spread across his face as he pointed up and called to Audi, "How about some of these?"

The tree was one of the tallest in the orchard, but it also held the largest abundance of bright red pomegranates in the entire garden. They sparkled and shone and emitted a delicious scent. One that basically screamed to the world 'that's right, we're ripe and ready for picking!' and Haggis would not ignore that! He reached out his hand, wanting to grab one and pull it down so he could crack it open and taste the delicious red seeds inside, only to blush and put his hand down when he realized how high up they actually where. Even if he jumped he probably couldn't reach it, he realized before blushing in embarrassment.

"Ah, they're a little high up though." He smiled nervously, "To bad... pomegranates are really good..."

Full of enthused energy, Audi pranced after Haggis, hopeful eyes pinned on the boy as he sniffed around. Some jealousy began to churn within her as she wondered what was it that he could smell. What was it like? The thought was brief and quick to pass, though, as she followed his hand with her gaze up to the tree.

It was huge and impressive, and the fruit on it were nothing like what Audi had seen. She stared at them curiously, waiting for him to grab one. When he resigned and spoke instead, she turned her head sharply to look at him. Well, now. That was hardly a problem! Smiling to herself at the fact that she had an opportunity to prove her usefulness, the ratgirl quickly scurried over to the trunk of the tree, climbing it as easily as a spider walks across a wall; as if normal rules of gravity didn't apply to her in that particular moment. This tree, however, lacked in branches thick enough to support the whole of her weight, so she had to remain with each limb clutching a different branch as she let go with one hand and grasped a particularly red fruit. She held it up to her good eye to examine it, mouth watering, then parted her lips to bite into it... but then she remembered about her ginger companion, and glancing behind her, she chucked the pomegranate at him. A few more soon followed suit - she aimed to gather enough to last a while when she climbed down and rejoined him to snack on the loot. Hopefully, he wouldn't scarf them all down while she was still up in the tree...

Haggis watched, awed at the climbing skills his new friend possessed. Goats were not built for climbing, at least not climbing trees. Sure, he admitted, he was very dexterous around hills and mountainous areas, but forests were areas he really didn't feel comfortable in. Too much unknown things ready to jump out at him. He was quite content to watch Audi climb with speed and natural agility. He didn't really say anything until the first pomegranate was chucked at him. With a bleat of surprise, he caught it in his hands.

A smile spread across the boy's lips as he stared down at the delicious red fruit. "Wow, these look amazing." He hummed in approval as more littered the floor around him. "Oh!" He smiled up at Audi nervously, "Um, you're a g-great climber. I wish I could climb like that...i-in trees anyways..." A nervous laugh accompanied the compliment before Haggis got to work on the fruit in his hand. Gripping it tightly, he cracked the red shell and tore it in half the best he could. Iniside, millions of beautiful red seeds gleamed in the sunlight that filtered through the treetops. His mouth watered and he heard his stomach growl with need.

Sticking a finger in, Haggis gathered some of the seeds and put them in his mouth, making sure to lick off what he could of the juice that now stained his finger tips. Pomegranate juice tended to do that. Looking up at the rat girl in the tree, Haggis held up the other half of the open fruit in offering. A small smile accompanied the offer. "These are really good ones," He complimented quietly, "you did great in picking them."

Audi smiled happily at the praise. It was true, she was proud of her climbing skills. Ratfolk had natural abilities in that direction, being able to grasp with all four limbs and sharp claws, using their tails for balance, but Audi herself shined even amongst her clanmates. It was one of the few things that made her stand out at all; she wasn't particularly big, or strong, or fast, or sharp-toothed, or smart... here, though, even things that were the average amongst her kin were special. It felt nice.

She slid down the tree easily and approached Haggis, picking up several of the fruit she'd collected on the way. Giving him a quizzical look at the way he ate the pomegranate, she just raised one to her mouth and chomped down on it, taking out half of it at once. Juice streamed down her chin as she chewed on the fruit contently. It was delicious, indeed. Seeing the fruit he offered, she swallowed quickly and took it out of his hand with her teeth. Then, with a mischievous glint in her eye, jerked her head up to throw the half of a pomegranate into the air, then caught it and ate it. There was a certain expectant look in her eye as she peered up at the boy, hoping to be praised for the trick. For some odd reason, she liked his compliments a lot.

Haggis watched her as she bit into the pomegranate like an apple. He couldn't help but wince a little at the loud (but succulent sounding) crunch the fruit made against her teeth. He continued to only eat the seeds as she accepted the other piece from his hand. His eyes widened in surprise as she flung it into the air. As he chewed up some of the seeds, a smile spread across his mouth as he licked his lips, which were slightly stained in the corners with pomegranate juice. As he fished out the last of the seeds, he placed the shell on the floor next to him and attempted to clean his fingers off by licking a few of them. The stains, of course, did not com out, but they did taste awfully delicious.

"Wow," Haggis murmured in awe, "Th-that was really cool...I can do that with grapes but...not with a pomegranate." He smiled half to himself and peered up. The sun was a little lower than the middle of the sky, it must've been a little past noon. Maybe 1:00, or 1:30? The day was already beginning to cool down from it's afternoon high temperature, and a slight breeze ruffled the boy's long hair. Sighing in comfort, Haggis closed his eyes and ran his fingers through the cool grass beneath him. "Now it's your turn," He mumbled, opening his eyes and peering over to Audi with a lazy smile, "What kind of fruit do you want to pick next? O-Or are you f-full?"

Like she thought it would, joy fluttered in her chest at the praise. Still smiling, she reached for another of the fruit she'd thrown off the tree and bit into it as she settled down into the soft grass. It was ever so inviting... Swallowing the rest of the pomegranate, Audi curled herself up on the ground, resting her chin on crossed forearms.

With half-lidded eyes, she returned his look and gave a contented low murmur in response. She could keep eating, sure, she always could; but the drowsiness that came upon her was something she would have trouble resisting. Slowly, she allowed her eyes to slide shut and began drifting off to take a nap in the last of the day's warmth, feeling as happy as she could be. This was home.
