It was the first time around that probably was the most gross out part of eating a live meal, but the feeling was more of something came over and he snapped back into a clear mind to realize what he was doing. Feeling the movement stop in his palm, Frank did what he did to finish the task by eating the limp rodent just as the others. The stomach pain was gone, but the awkward feeling was still on his mind as he got a good poseur back.
"That'sss going to take a little bit more time to get ussse to, even the ssecond time trying issss weird ssstill." Frank tried to say more but met with wiping down his mouth again from the saliva dripping from his mouth.
Jeremy grabbed the rag and handed it to Frank, with a seldom smirk from the situation.
"You'll get usse to the whole speaking think after sssssome practice with moving around the tongue and fangs to get vowelsss out, you're just all wild up from the pain that your fangssss are out becaussse you're being defensive. Relax a little bit more and they should go back into their sheaths."
Frank took a few breaths after finishing the mess, and slowly could feel the fang pull their way back into the roof of his mouth. It was still a strange feeling for Frank, but to add it all up it the matter of feeling things differently from in his mouth and the growing tail that finally went quiet.

Frank sighed and felt the heaviness lift off his chest. Tobias smiled and placed his hand on his friends shoulder. "You'll get use to everything in time. Took me some time with these." He motioned allowing his talons to extract and retract back under his nailbed. "You'll get the hang of your new appendige in time as well. Take my wings as a good example. I still knock things down by accident because i forget how large they are. But, i suggest going down to the workiut room with Marcel and im sure my partner can teach you to fight well with it."
Frank smiled lightly and nodded in approvel while giving his rattle another shake in assurance that he could control it.
It didn't take too long for him to make up his mind as Frank went down to the basement level to get a good little lesson of how to use his tail, at the same time the idea of using it as a weapon had him really rattling in excitement. A little strange to think about, but in sorts thought of his tail to be connected to his emotions happy or angry. Marcel was down by the weights when he got the word about giving Frank a little lesson in actually being able to put up in a fight, even though it would be rare but with the boys in the house roughing it out he would stand a chance.
"Looks like hiss boy is becoming more snake like by the day, at least that's what I'm hearing from upstairs." Marcel snort slightly hearing Frank's rattle a little bit in the back.
"What do you know? Toby thinkssss that it could be ussseful in cassssse of a fight I would be not much of a loossse end and have a built in weapon for defenssse."
Marcel looked at the tail that was slowly trying to slip out again, and knew this was going to be interesting when an obstacle was in the mix.

"My question to you then is can you even control it?"
Marcel questioned very serious as he started to move some soft mats an lay them out side by side.
"I ask this because if you can't control it, then you can hurt yourself and those around you. A good example, i want you to do your best to lift this 5lb free weight with that tail of yours."
Frank looked perplexed at the task but shrugged and gently moveed it out of his pants with some wiggle room and a few short rattles and cusses.
Sounded like a pretty easy task to do, but thoughts can be greater than an action when it came to this. He looked down to the weight for a moment to get an idea of how to move the thing, as he tried to move his tail it rattled for a moment before staying in it's place going into a slow rattle. Of course rattling was pretty much down, but Frank started to get more agitated, making the thing rattle even faster before Marcel pepped in.
"Your letting your frustration make it rattle, but think of it this way, that tail is now part of you so that means your mind is connected to the nerves met to it. Try to 'think' of moving it."
"That'ssss better ssaid than actually done." Frank hissed as he heaved a breath.
Slowly he closed his eyes to think about the connection, and knew now that it was a lot harder to do with something new just like Toby and his wings but in a smaller scale. Marcel looked on as he watched Frank's tail rattle a little, before giving a slight twitch and started to sway slowly.

It wasn't much and Frank gave up hopelessly.
"I'm not even suppossse to be like this I just told Jeremy no." Frank sighed before quietly turning on his heel to walk away in defeat once again. He yelped in surprise when he felt his tail gently get tugged from behind him. He turned to see Marcel gently handling his tail and was guiding it in swaying back and forth.
"You need to feel this movement and start recognizing it. From there, we can work on that weight lifting."
Frank, still feeling defeated, did what was asked and didn't realize that Marcel and let go and he was freely moving it and curling the tip back and forth. He didn't say anything other than to let him move his tail around the barbell. Frank did so and gently wrapped his tail around it twice before picking up and look up to see Marcel with his hands in the air.
"See, you could do it!"
A little smirk curled on his face, though he had just finished pouting over what seemed to be a difficult task became pretty easy for a start. Curling the rattle was a good start now that Frank knew it was going to be a inter connection to what he thinks for his tail to do, and actually using the muscles to move it. Now that the idea was placed in mind, he tried a few times to curl his tail a little bit more, wrapping it around the weight to get a good grip while at the same time getting the sense of touch going. It was still a little strange that he could actually feel the slightly cold metal around the scales that were touching the surface.
This took a few times to register, but Marcel watched as his friend was slowly getting the hang of curling his tail on an object. Frank tried a few times at lifting, but it was a slow process to let mind and strength take hold. Instead of throwing the towel in a matter of moments of trying, Frank was just registering everything baby steps at a time.
