His voice deepened, his eyes narrowed as he changed his personal pronoun, "Speak very carefully now: You are now referring to me. I am Udyr. I am as free as the clouds, no one can control me or tell me what to do unless I let them. Everything and everyone is driven by instinct. Humans are lucky to have emotion as it can be used to empower said instinct. Love, compassion, friendship, these weaken the survival instinct as you put others before yourself. Anger, anger can be used to forge instinct into an undeniable force. One can use anger to push past their limits and achieve heights never thought imaginable. Emotion is meant to be controlled, not discarded. That is a part of the human condition." Udyr took a stance, little embers flickering about his body. "Tell me now, what do you think you were wrong about the mighty Udyr?"
Zyra now looks confused, her eyes strained on Udyr,
She doesn't speak for a while, when she does respond the confusion only
"...I believed you did not use human emotion. Another false assumption...."
Not seeming to care that he had changed pronouns, she only focuses on the embers,
"So. You think human emotion can empower ones instinct if controlled... You believe I should embrace my human emotions? Such as fear? Fear is telling me to retreat from those embers for fear being burnt. But curiousity has me standing here before you... Asking you questions even though you are clearly angered by them."
She seats herself on the ground, as she tries to sift through her thoughts,
"Confusion has me sitting instead of standing in order to run or fight... I simply wished to know if you considered her a friend..."
She looks to Udyr, an odd expression on her face, as she speaks the four words that were constantly burning in her mind,
"I do not understand."
