The hybrid saiyan flown here to pick up enough fruit to last the family household for a week, deep down Russe knew he will most likely make three or four trips comng here, both himself and his mother will devaor the nutrients in less than a minute. He is contemplating on whether or not he should just buy watermelons, they are the biggest fruit in the market with enough content to keep them full, the blue haired boy examined the food list as he walked through the area.
"Apples, Oranges, Watermelon, Grapes and Strawberries, I don't know why mother doesn't just have me buy the big fruit, it will be gone the next day" he complained, he has no idea why the cosmic entities cursed his race with colossal appetites. Searching for a buggy he found one nearby and retrieved it to began his shopping.

The fruit markets were one of Zhalla's favourite places to go and get food for the kids, not only because of the prices but also the fruits here were fresh, cared for and it was good for their little appetites, and her big one too. The majority of them loved at least one type of fruit that she'd put into a massive fruit salad for them so she saw it as quite the win. Healthy eats and no ridiculous prices. She had brought with her today just one of the sheltered kids to help her pick some fruits and to let them have a bit of a walk around outside of the shelter area. She did this often and usually took out three kids at a time to not only stretch their legs even more but to get them all used to the rest of the outside world for when they grew up eventually too. This time the individual she had brought with her was a young Namekian boy who seemed rather shy and tended to hold onto one of her legs, which he was no taller then.
The Saiyan women would carry one basket and she'd let the Namekian boy hold one as well since he had expressed rather eagerly that he had wanted to before arriving. Since the boy was probably a bit too short still to see most of the fruits in the stalls, Zhalla would scoop him up and hold him up in one arm, "Up we go! Now you can see all of the fruits! Are there any that you'd like Uba?" She'd ask softly as she let the boy take a proper look around the markets now that he was up higher. Uba then eagerly pointed to the stall that had all the big watermelons. "The watermelons huh? We can getcha some of those, I know that tends to be a favourite back home" It was one of the sweeter tasting fruits afterall. "Do you want me to carry the watermelons?" She almost laughed at how quickly Uba shook his head, "Alright alright, but only carry one, okay? They're very heavy" It wouldn't take them too long to get three well sized watermelons bought and into the bags, Uba carrying the smallest one while Zhalla carried the other two. "Blueberry?" Zhalla paused for a moment, she wasn't sure if she had actually seen any blueberries yet, but she wasn't about to say no "Sure! Let's take a look around" Picking him back up again she soon spotted something blue, but it wasn't berries. It was the hair of another Saiyan, maybe he would know where to find some?
Approaching Russe, Zhalla would let Uba gently tap him on the shoulder before then hiding in Zhalla's hair, to get his attention. "Hey there! Sorry to bother you uh, have you seen any blueberries around or do you know if they've ran out already for today?" She didn't intend to take up too much of his time but she hoped she wasn't pulling him away from anything important still.
The namekian succeeded in getting his attention, Russé swooped around to face a another saiyan, her height is pretty intimidating enough for the blue haired boy to feel slightly startled. He noted the small namekian perched on her shoulder, judging by her body language he felt no trace of il-intent from this woman.
"The blueberries are straight ahead, they are on the left section in-between-the cherries and grapes" he pointed towards the isle ahead of him. In the corner of his eye on the right section, the watermelons are within his site for him to take, he didn't leave just yet wanting to make sure this woman is directed to where she wants to go.
Russé's slight startled state didn't go exactly unnoticed by the other Saiyan after he had turned around but she was glad it was only a first reaction and not a lasting one. She didn't want him to be scared or anything after all. "Sorry if we startled you" She'd add just in case though, offering him a small smile while Uba still hid his face in her long curled hair.
When he explained where the blueberries where, Zhalla would give him a thankful nod, "Cheers! Thank you for pointing them out!" She'd gesture to the Namekian still clinging to her, "Blueberries are some of his favourite, we wouldn't want to go home without them!" She'd then give the child a small encouraging bounce in her arms, "What do we say Uba?" Slowly, they came out of hiding and looked shyly towards Russé, "Thank you" He'd say so softly, it was almost a whisper, but it was loud enough for the two to hear.
Happy he had managed some words to another person while they were out, Zhalla hugged onto Uba and then headed off towards where Russé had said the blueberries would be, and sure enough there were only a couple few left. "Lucky lucky Uba, you pick up all the ones you want and I'll pay, go ahead" She'd say encouragingly as she set the small boy down to pick them out for himself. While Uba did do this, he also kept looking back to the blue haired Saiyan they briefly spoke to, maybe something was on his mind?
The spiky-haired saiyan's habit of analyzing people's strength wont go away anytime soon and this woman is no exception, he attempted to sense her power while focusing his attention on the young namekian, a smile is all he could give for him and who wouldn't do that for children. "No worries, His name is Uba huh and he likes blueberries? Haha I prefer watermelons, the ones with no seeds in them, I can eat so many of them without having to worry about swallowing seeds." he played off as if being started never happened, he watched the pair headed for the other section as he went to go get some watermelons.
He felt bad about using the little guy as a shield to hide away his curiosity, he noted her eyebrow scar and took it as a sign of hardship, on top of her being tall he wondered how strong she really is. Russé placed two watermelons into his kart, he went to grab some apples in another section, If Uba realized something was on Russé mind, he was probably right.
