"Well, then, let's workout a ton, so eating food right after would feel really satisfying!" Valt answered. Honestly, yeah, he's getting hungry too. He really want to hit the restaurant quickly! It'll be far better than this cold water after all... Hrrr...!
"I can't help but to want to eat first before continuing though... So Cass, what do you think if after getting to the boat we stop first and eat? I'm kind of hungry, eheh... Although I think going back to the water right after eating is bad idea... but then again, your species is made for underwater feeding so I guess it's fine for you?"
Either way, Valt gave Cassie a kiss on the cheek to motivate her more. There's a swelling pride in him looking at Cassie keep going at it, even if this is her first training. Valt kept swimming beside her, making sure that the traffic wouldn't disturb her. Plus, he hope that by being with her, he could motivate her better.
"You can do it, Cass! Just a bit more!"
And true enough, they arrived on the place where the boat parked. Valt quickly rose to the surface. Ignoring the chilly wind, he helped Cassie unlatches all the weight and pulled it to the shore. He grinned at his Gomamon X lover and gave her a lick to the cheek.
Caught up in swimming with her weights on, Cassie didn't respond to Valt immediately; focused more on keeping on moving forward, towards the end goal..! The suggestion of them taking a break to eat, though, did seem like a good idea - and she'd only respond to Valt with the briefest of nods, before she turned her attention back to the canal ahead.
Ophelia, though, seemed puzzled by something. "... Why's it a bad idea, to go back into the water right after you eat?" She'd ask, tilting her head a little. She wasn't going to be swimming anytime soon, so it wasn't like this information was particularly relevant to her, but... It didn't exactly make sense to her, either!
Still; Valt's affections and encouragement would help, in motivating her to push forward - her muscles were starting to get a bit tired, even as she persevered! It raised the question, faintly, in the back of her mind on if she'd be able to manage pulling the boat like this - but...
"Hell yeah, Cassie; lookit you..!"
... Before she knew it, she had reached it. The removal of the weights would allow Cassie to finally relax, sighing heavily as she gently held onto Valt with a flipper, and slowly nuzzled him. "That was getting tough, at the end there..." She'd murmur softly; smiling warmly to Valt and Ophelia, at the praise that they both heaped on her. "... But I did it..!"
"Because the temperature difference sort of affects your metabolism," Valt answered. "In colder places, your body's focus is how to keep warm, thus your body stockpiles fat if it rests. If you do activities, generally you'll lose fat faster in cold places because your body is trying to keep you warm. In warm place however your metabolism is slower because heat is not as necessary.There's a myth how by dipping to cold water after you eat you'll get stomachache, but it's not true. The idea is the same as why you shouldn't immediately run or do physical activities right after eating. The activity just upset your stomach."
Valt honestly was ultra proud at Cassie. Upon her clinging at him with a flipper and nuzzled him, Valt nuzzled back and booped their noses together. "Ehehe~ You did well, Cass~ You're a champion!" At any rate, Valt climbed up to the boat and helped Cassie to hop in. The cold made the dragon shivers, but he quickly dried himself and turned on a no-electric source heater. The small machine hummed and spread warmth that he seriously appreciates.
"Right, so... Time to eat~ Ophi, would you like to jump to this side?" Valt pointed at the side across where she stood, right beside the canal. "And while at it, let's nab some snacks."
So the temperature affects your metabolism, and how it processes fat...? Ophelia would hum as she thought it all over, before nodding. Though she never did totally get these biology things, it all made sense to her otherwise. "So, depending on whether you exercise somewhere cold, or exercise somewhere warm, you could influence whether you gain or lose weight?" Ophelia would ask, figuring that was the obvious conclusion to the information that Valt provided. "Damn, that'd make a pretty handy way to lose weight fast!" She'd laugh briefly; though it wasn't exactly a lose-weight-fast trick that she needed. She was already pretty fit!
Instead, she'd simply watch as Cassie and Valt exchanged affection - Cassie giggling cheerily to Valt as he nuzzled her back and booped their noses together. "I'm not a Champion yet, silly..!" She would jokingly poke at Valt, smiling gently and humorously as she climbed up into the boat with the V-mon's help. Though the water against the cold air was, indeed, cold... Cassie could handle it easily, with her blubber..!
She'd simply take a second to grab a towel to dry herself off - the tufts of fur being the only real spots she wanted to dry off - before settling down next to Valt and the heater. With a relaxed hum, she would rest her head on her mate-to-be's knee; her tail wagging lazily as she was able to rest her muscles, after a good bit of workout.
Ophelia, meanwhile, would perk up at Valt's call; glancing to the spot that he had indicated, on the opposite side of the canal. "Sure! Gimme just a second..." She'd respond; backing away from the canal a few paces, so that she had the space for a running start, and crouched down low - bracing herself, muscles bunching up. Once she was prepared, Ophelia would dart forward on all fours - claws digging into the ground for traction - and proceed to LEAP at the last second, sailing through the air.
Though the leap was quite the impressive one. it would - initially - look as though she wasn't going to make it! However, Ophelia didn't expect to cross the canal in one leap; she had a plan. She'd first land atop the boat - rocking it slightly from her impact - and use it like a springboard, bouncing off of it and maintaining her inertia to leap across the rest of the waterway..!
Cassie was unable to help a surprised squeak as the boat shifted underneath them from Ophelia's impact, but was otherwise okay; simply giggling a bit at Ophelia's antics. "You go, Ophi!" She'd cheer with a wave of a flipper, grinning happily.
Ophelia, grinning, would respond back with a thumbs up and a "Hell yeah!" as she landed on the other side of the canal; perfectly dry - save for perhaps the tip of her tail, which she flicked a bit of water off - with her quick thinking.
