Ash just grunts in response.

"Did they eat already?" Jay asks, looking around at the empty room as he approaches the man.
"Just finished," Ash replies.

"Sounds dangerous," replies Ash.
"It's not," says Jay, vaguely annoyed now. "I'm here for guidance, not control. Besides, I get better information when I leave them alone."

"You really are an oddball," responds Ash after a moment, an eyebrow raised.

"Thank you...?" says Jay, confused.
