Jessy dusted off her palms and swept her hair back from her face. A few stray strands had fallen loose from the bandanna she wore during chore time. Svan trotted alongside her, saddlebags bulging with fresh hay to be raked into the last stall in the barn.
"Thanks so much for your help today Svan! You've been a lifesaver!" Jessy hugged the amaura cross pokemon around the neck before pulling the saddlebags off. The flaming mane and tail whipped about harmlessly as Svan shook herself from head to her pointed toes.
The pokemon trainer raked the hay into place, straightening the name-tag on the door as she stepped out from stall. Svanhildr. Jessy smiled as her companion trotted in, inspecting the hay and making sure it was just as it should be. Satisfied, she blew out a snort and knelt down, eyes closing for a nap. Jessy was content to watch for a moment, but a loud crash outside caused her to jerk to attention.
