"Well?" Koda said, as if he were asking 'what are you going to do?' at the end.
Nomi paused and considered her options for a moment. She could interviene and potentially save the fish from its turmoil, but was that really the best thing to do? Was this a test her dad had put before her? No, that didn't seem right. Just because she had briefly diagreed with him didn't mean he would stand over her shoulder and judge her for her response to a tiny sardine caught in the current. That was completely silly to even consider.
She swiped her claw through the water slowly, causing the current to change around her and letting the little fish break free of the onslaught of water. "There you go," she said softly to it, though it couldn't possibly hear or understand her. The little fish slipped away into the river, not to be seen again.

Twilight-Claw: Lol, those puppies are comically cute in appearance! I feel like I might have seen them from somewhere else with their baby stage, but more because of their pudgy stage and short limbs. x3
