The creature simply stared at the mage, uncomprehending. What did the man want? Why didn't he take his magicking stick back? Perhaps, the creature thought, it had been contaminated somehow. That was probably his doing but he didn't feel the least bad for it. The human shouldn't have left it with him! It was the magicker's own fault then. What did he expect the creature to do about it anyway? Then again... the man had picked it up. If the two-legger was willing to touch it then it couldn't be that contaminated.
It took the creature perhaps a bit longer than might seem necessary to decide that Ontaros meant for him to take it. He looked down at the staff in the man's hands, considering them closely before crouching in an attempt to get a look underneath as though he expected to find something there. Perhaps something propping the man's hands up? It was impossible to say, but the creature took his time inspecting before making a hesitant grab for object of attention. As he reached for it his toes lengthened and a fifth appeared as his pseudo-thumb moved back to make room for it. He grasped the staff in his hand made to fit in the place of a paw and drew it back to himself clumsily. It was a little misshapen, the thumb still not quite properly oposable, and he seemed to significantly lack dexterity and range of motion, but it was, undoubtedly, a hand. On his other side, the same changes took place at a slower pace but he didn't seem to notice.
He never took his eyes off the pale not-creature-not-man as he moved. Still a little uncertain, he watched the two-legger's face for any recognizable signs that he was right or wrong. He didn't give a rat's a** about the stick, but he struggled to understand the magicker and the magicker cared about the stick. More than that, though, he wanted to know how the man would react to the way he took the stick. After watching the humans, it seemed a good idea to try to emulate them -certainly useful in this case anyway- but he needed to know it would be okay. Just because the mage decided to turn himself into a creature didn't mean he wanted the creature turning himself into a two-legger.
