You shut your beak with a click as you look over at her form.
'Wow... I really covered her.'
You shake your head to get the remains of the dirty thoughts out and stretch a bit under the warm water, waiting a minute to let your fur and feathers get thoroughly soaked before taking the shampoo and lathering yourself up with it, sticking mostly to easy the easy to reach parts of your body and waiting until Nocturne was done with her face before talking to her, turning around when she was.
"Want some help with your back," You ask, "Claws might be better lathering your mane and tail as well."
"Go ahead." She nods; flicking her tail at you.
You put some more shampoo on your claws and start cleaning her mane with them, taking the time to play with her mane a bit more during the process. You rub the soap into her scalp and slowly work your way down her mane to clean out the remnants of your previous fun, nearing the end of your cleaning when you stop for a second.
'What if the pills don't work? What do we do?'
"Y-You, uh, what i-if I-I-we..." You stammer; then stopping to calm yourself down and speak normally, "I wonder what would happen if you stuck your muzzle in one of my bubbles and just screeched into it for as long as you could, we'd need hearing protection.
You then quickly start to scratch a bit at her ear, making her let out a sigh and lean in a bit into your scratches before slowly working your way down her neck.
'Dammit, I can talk to her about stuff. This isn't the worse thing I've asked her about.'
You get some more soap onto your claws to start to wash her wings, working your way up slowly and then back down to make sure you got every part of her wing before doing the same to the other.
"...I'm kinda glad you blasted me with the ray," Nocturne admits, "I had a fun time and I hope you did as well. Though I would've gotten you a lab coat if I knew you were going to play a scientist for a bit."
What do you do?
