some may still be wondering about her stomach but rest assured, it is relatively tiny. while it is soft its one of the few parts of her that isnt oversized.
but nature magic is quite taxing on one that was meant to burn, to counter this she must eat many, many times what she is supposed to to store all the mana, giving her a extreme appetite to go along with her size.
yes your average offering of a plate of fried tofu and a bottle of sake are not enough for this fox, we instead need crates and barrels, her stomach's size after the fact betraying the idea that she ate even a fraction of what she did
but unlike other foxes of her power she is much more kind and sweet, after finishing off the sake and there is a male around she gets all lovey, dovey, and cuddly. but at the back of her mind is always the love for her "little adventurer" that she grew up with. it would hurt her so to betray him. so she makes sure to just go to sleep and dreams about the day he finds her before she can do something she would regret.
and those dreams often lead to daydreams the next day about when they two were still together.
she was horrible malnourished at the time with a withered tail, putting everything she could into her studies of nature magic. she would neglect her body much to anon's fright.
he had to make sure to interrupt her at the perfect moment or else she would refuse to eat for another few hours, and when she did eat it was never the full plate, only a few bites.
he had to spray her with water if she was staying up far too late to get her to snap out of the study trance, but if he did it at a key moment in her study then it was another all nighter.
oh he did not take the news of her going to a god pantheon well, it would mean that he couldn't be there to look after her.
but her studies were over then, she no longer had to burry herself in books or practice extremely draining magic for hours on end. but even after hearing that he was still worried, she hadn't properly taken care of herself for years.
he denies it but when she left he was in a sobbing mess. crying about how "she couldnt afford to miss another meal" and "root smoothies are not substance for a meat eating kitsune!"
and at the end of that part of the daydream she would always think
>oh if only he saw me now
