(We didn’t establish it but my thought was Milo and Orville shared the bed but like, on opposite sides, not all the way sleeping together)

(Yeah I feel you!)

Orville smiled a bit seeing Milo curled up in bed - They were a very adorable monster - and then opened the door. A smiling woman who seemed...mostly human, save for two long black horns extending from her head, smiled and held a large tray of various breakfast foods - French toast, fresh fruits, eggs, bacon, the works.
"Oh, ah. Thanks!" Orville gave a good natured smile as the woman handed him the tray. "Good morning."
The woman simply smiled back and shut the door. Orville took the tray back and set it down next to the bed. It felt...wrong to eat without the person he was technically partnered with.
"Uh....wake up, sleepyhead?" Orville tried, in an attempt to wake Milo up peacefully.

The knock on the door woke him from a deep sleep. He woke in a start, confused by how dark it was, before the memories of the previous day sunk in. Oh, right. He dragged himself out of his 'bed', yawning and stretching, and opened the door.

A similar sight met Kal - A short, mostly human individual with multiple eyes stood with a tray of warm, assorted breakfast foods and offered it to Kal as soon as he opened the door.

When morning came she was woken by the knocking and the glorious smell of food. She rolled off the couch and opened  the door

A tall, broad-shouldered man who...actually looked 100% human aside from the height stood in front of Lina, also holding at looked to a tray of freshly made food.
"Ah...I've got breakfast for a...Lina and...Abi?" He asked shyly, offering the tray to Lina.

Aphis opened the door and was met by a woman with pale skin handing her a breakfast tray silently, which Aphis felt would be very heavy if she didnt have four arms. She shakily thanked the woman and turned to face Oz as the door shut.
".....They brought us breakfast." She finally said.

Kaia watched from her blanket peephole as Kal was greeted by a monster with food. Now that the door was open, it smelled even more fragrant than it did before.

"Thanks." Abi said with a bright smile and closed the door. "Now, we need to come up with a plan for getting you home." She said quietly.

"Of course they did." Oz grumbled. "Now shut up, I'm trying to sleep."

“Eggs?” Milo mumbled. They turned around to face Orville, still lying down. “Nice.”

"Of course they did." Oz grumbled. "Now shut up, I'm trying to sleep."

Aphis huffed. "So I guess I'll just eat this all myself. Starve if you want." Lazy human. She thought bitterly as she set the tray down on the kitchen countertop. Was this routine going to become her life? She'd honestly rather die.

“Eggs?” Milo mumbled. They turned around to face Orville, still lying down. “Nice.”

"Yeah! And fruit, which I honestly haven't had in....a while, heh." Orville's diet had sort of become whatever cheap, easy meals he could make and eat quickly so he could get back to work faster. And those rarely included fresh fruit.
His expression became less cheerful as he saw the darkness of the sky through the windows.
"....You doing okay, Milo?" He asked quietly. "I know that some of the others are upset, or scared...and you don't seem too upset or anything, but still, with everything that happened...how are you holding up?"

“Um...” Milo sat up and grabbed a strip of bacon. “Okay, I think? Trying not to think about it. The bacon’s good.”

Kal happily took the food, nodding at the little monster in thanks before he turned and brought the tray over to Kaia. He set it on the bedside table, then made the sign for 'early food'; or, breakfast.

Kaia surveyed the food. “Thank you,” She said. She was still shaken up over being here, the idea of settling and falling in love with Kal - as nice as he seemed - to be a bit unnerving.

Teresa heard something coming up behind them and turned quickly, ready to strike quickly if needed, but hesitated a bit when the Pokemon - a Zangoose - stopped and asked them a question. "Service?" She asked cautiously.
