Eleroo 133 || Seek 123


Eleroo groaned as quietly as he could before standing and noisily shaking out his coat. The fall had been stark and awakening, tossing away any hopes he had of easing into the morning. His side hurt all the way down his body, and his jaw ached where it tapped the floor, but for all his noise Seek still seemed at peace. With a sigh of relief the kit awkwardly brushed the fur on his face with one paw before padding off to check on Felix. To his surprise the Sylveon was no longer in his spot on the floor, and before a panic could arise the Radeon saw him not too far away. His face lit up upon seeing him upright and well, his eyes bright, fur no only matted with sweat, and breathing back under control. Bounding the few paces up to him Eleroo could not keep tail, or more so his entire hindquarters, from wiggling. "Felix!" He squeaked in a hushed tone as he vainly tried to keep his voice down. "You're awake. How are you feeling?"

The excitement buzzed throughout his being and could only be released by his paws as they worked the ground and bounced slightly. He looked so good! Suddenly all the struggling yesterday felt worth it, the effort had paid off in full.With his mind so wrapped up in his friends well-being Eleroo hadn't even noticed the bowls lining the floor. Had he gotten these for them all? Was it a thank you? Smiling, the kit's head tilted to one side. "Aw, that's so sweet." A nostalgic feeling warmed him throughout as he stared at the bowls. How long had it been since his owner fed him with something similar, since he felt the smooth yet hard surface on his chin? These ones weren't quite the same shape or material, but the gesture was still kind.


Seek's ears stared to flick. Something had changed and her conscious stared to lift. Even as she curled herself into a tighter ball and felt comfort beneath her she could not keep herself within the quiet of her unconscious mind. With a quivering brow her sky colored eyes drifted open. It was dim, morning perhaps, and still calm. Nothing had come for them. With a slow blink and a massive yawn the vulpine sat up and rubbed her eyes with one paw. It didn't feel like they were under attack, but despite her desire for a much needed morning wash she had to be sure first.

Hopping slowly off the couch onto wobbly legs the Aiveon trotted with her head low toward the other window. Uxie looked like he hadn't moved all night. Was he even awake? Her vision was a little fuzzy but it didn't matter; it was impossible to tell anything with those closed eyes. He could be deep in slumber as far as she could tell, and her question may have gone unheard. "What's the word?"

Shenron still slept even if his mind registered his companions moving around. His paws moved a little planting firmly and rolling him over on his back. He stretched some and got up only to flop back over. It had been so long since he was able to sleep without serious anxiety. He shouldn't get used to it. He really shouldn't... But he was so sleepy. Shenron groaned scooting himself with his back paws towards the door thudding his head against it and quietly opened the door just a bit. The cold dawning air and rain fell on his face snorting him awake immediately. He sat up fully closing the door and yawned before looking around. "Sorry about that, good morning everyone. How did we sleep?"

Everything was prepared and it looked nice. Each bowl an equal distance from each other and in a circle. If Felix didn't know any better he had certainly did a nice job. There was a feeling though that was nagging him. He wondered what happened to R'hia and Asura? Then again pokemon have randomly vanished in strange ways and its quite a strange phenomenon that it happens. A voice then caught his attention. "Felix!" Eleroo was excited to see him up and moving around again. Eleroo's voice was a bit up there with excitement. Then again he did have everyone concerned. "You're awake. How are you feeling?" He was glad that the radeon asked that. In one sense he doesn't like getting others worried about his own health, but in this point he felt happy. "I feel a lot more better now. For a while I thought I was going to be unable to do anything anyore. Thank you Eleroo. I'll thank the others as soon as they awaken." With that said he waited for the other pokemon to join him and Eleroo.

Looking at Eleroo a bit the Sylveon seen the poison eeveelution inspecting what he had done. A smile came from him as Felix looked a bit more. "Aw, that's so sweet." Since it was a way of saying thank you to them, this made Felix smile. However they would have to still consider the threat of the Floatzel posses if it comes back with an entire mob. Felix stretches out a bit more, getting his legs woke up a bit more. "Sorry about that, good morning everyone. How did we sleep?" Looks like Shenron is up now as well. All that is left is Uxie and Seek. With the three of them up it was only a matter of time before the other two come and join them for breakfast. The sound of rain being heard outside had been coming down still, but hopefully the rain will stop soon so they can get some distance towards their destination before the next rain band comes in.


The Sylveon then sniffed the air. It was no different from when they arrived to that place they're at now. "I slept quite well. In fact I feel quite energetic today. How did you sleep Shenron?" Felix asked the Charizard as he had sat down waiting patiently for the other two. Even then he was still able to support the others with solutions to problems if it ever arises to that point. For now though a simple conversation with the others would feel more better. Since they was at peace for now, it was best to get to spend time relaxed before they make their way back into danger.

The sluggish motions of the others had already started to change and pick up as they each greeted the new day. Shenron in particular gave himself a blast of cold air to jostle himself awake when the allure of a quiet morning was too much. The icy fingers trailed over to the legend, making his skin prickle and crawl as it too was awoken from its calm state. Language met the air, giving the still room a new breath of life within minutes.

Little to none was directed his way, leaving the being to silently stare at the rain beyond. Only one approached him, the stressed looked to her eye a give away to the toll this roll was taking. "What's the word?" She asked softly and breathlessly, the tug of sleep still obvious on her tongue. It would be a wonder, he thought, if her dreams had not been filled with the same tension.

"Five unique Pokemon passed multiple times. However, their activities were kept to a distance. I can not say with certainty if they had any interest in this abode, but their interest seemed to be about their own business."

"I feel a lot more better now. For a while I thought I was going to be unable to do anything anymore. Thank you Eleroo. I'll thank the others as soon as they awaken." Eleroo's rump wiggled when his tail could not. Though he felt his actual role in receiving the medicine was... very little, the praise still felt nice. He practically purred as he spoke, "I know they'll appreciate it." He could only hope that R'hia too could feel the gratitude. A muffled noise drew Eleroo's attention back. The room was quiet, but he knew the sound to be coming from inside and was not surprised to see one of his companions making it. As Shenron yawned with his own form of waking up he spoke in a deep mumble. "Sorry about that, good morning everyone. How did we sleep?"

Letting the others respond first Eleroo prompted his own with a nod. "It was a little rough falling asleep but I didn't wake up even once." He was a chronically light sleeper, and he had doubted how well he'd rest given the circumstances, but with Seek's embrace it felt almost nostalgic.. The child swayed on his paws, his thoughts lost to times long gone. As if prompted by those memories his stomach churned, begging for food once more. He recalled the berries and snacks they had gathered yesterday but not if they had enough for everyone. The machine had more, not that he was about to crawl in it again, but going out would probably get them a scolding.. "Do we have enough foodstuff?"


"Five unique Pokemon passed multiple times. However, their activities were kept to a distance. I can not say with certainty if they had any interest in this abode, but their interest seemed to be about their own business." Five unique..? Did that mean species of beings? The kit was too tired to play games with the legends words. Regardless of that answer a dread was growing deep in her belly; their numbers were equal if not greater than their own. Could we win in a fight? That point seemed moot with a legend on their side, but Uxie's hesitation to intervene could easily could their numbers as one less. Not if we are outnumbered.. Tossing her head to the side Seek could see the others were already awake and chatting. Felix was among them, looking prime and healthy once more. A silent sigh puffed from her maw; it had been worth it.

But, that didn't account for her failure, and the predicament she had placed them in. "They passed? Doing what? Do you know if they went into their storage at all? Was it anything unusual, or were they holding anything?" Though her voice remained as calm as it could questions toppled rapidly from her maw. It was inevitable that they would find her prints, but if they hadn't yet, if they still had time-- The Aiveon forced herself into a rough swallow. She paused her thoughts, suddenly recalling the Floatzel from yesterday and the sack that he had. "Was that Floatzel there? Did you see him?" Whatever it was doing it couldn't be good. If it was about like these other Pokemon.. they may as well be in the trap already.

Shenron chuckled at Eleroo's response and smiled seeing Felix in good health. Good, it is excellent to see you in such high spirits Felix" He raised his wing gnawing at the scales to knead warmth into it. "I understand Eleroo, it seems hard to sleep given the state of things. It is good to know you managed to rest though" Shenron looked over at the vending machines as Eleroo spoke. There were still some things. He hadn't eaten all the popcorn just a single bag he cooked on his fire. There was a lot left unless one of them had raided it for a little late night snack. "I can check the machines for expiration dates but I'm sure there are still things in there  that we can eat" Shenron got up and stretched before wandering over to look. Vaguely recalling Eleroo becoming stuck in the machine with the hole still in it from Shenron recovering him. That would be a good way to peek in.

Seems everyone so far is excited he recovered. This was a good thing but while he still waits for the other two, his thoughts wander off to what happened with R'hia and Asura. Felix wanted to thank them personally but they're not around to tell them. Only thing came to mind was that mysterious flash of light that happened to him as well as any other pokemon. This is by far puzzling to me as I see time go by. I hope those two are okay out there. Now then where was I? Ah making sure everyone knows how thankful I am. If they had came to late then I would have been in a world of trouble. The Sylveon thought to himself as he stretches out a bit more. The stretch had felt good enough to wake up all the joints to the point where he was ready for action at a split notice.

Shenron had said something about the machines for expiration dates. It was okay for that part. Its better to be safe than sorry. "Alright, its better to check than all of us getting sick from food poisoning. It would suck to get sick a second time." After that he took a look around to make sure nobody other than them had been inside with them. Though it was a small area he checked it looked all clear for the time being. Hopefully Shenron will bring back some good things for them to eat along with the berries.

The child's words came quickly, a rising panic smothered only by rapid thought execution. It almost made Uxie's own thoughts wander, pondering how someone so young had survived this pandemic without learning to cope with stress. "They passed? Doing what? Do you know if they went into their storage at all? Was it anything unusual, or were they holding anything?" While she was attempting to cover all bases the young one seemed blind to the fact these Pokemon had other priorities that also had to be tended to.

"Most appeared to be doing a border patrol of sorts, while others left and returned with edibles. The others I can not say for certain."

What had the Pokemon that were awake so early been doing? Guard swaps, parameter checks, feeding the group, collecting fresh water, repairing damage from the storm. Uxie didn't claim to know what activities filled their daily lives, but while some of the other Pokemon were certainly thinking of them they couldn't all bind their time with that. Such methods would never survive.

"Was that Floatzel there? Did you see him?"

When Seek reached for something specific Uxie turned to face her. Had yesterdays encounter resonated fear within her? Pausing to allow a proper inhale for them before he exhaled a simple, "Yes," before continuing the thought on a new breath. "He skulked toward the Center and passed the center point again shortly after. He left again recently, with another, and was the last Pokemon to pass by."

Eleroo 135 || Seek 125


"I understand Eleroo, it seems hard to sleep given the state of things. It is good to know you managed to rest though." Eleroo could practically purr. Shenron's interest was likely just that of polite conversation, but it felt good nonetheless to know someone else understood. Still struggling to blink the sleep from his eyes the kit knew he must have slept well; he only struggled to wake like this when he slept well or hadn't slept in days. "I can check the machines for expiration dates but I'm sure there are still things in there that we can eat." Eleroo nodded, thankful that someone else was, more or less, offering to retrieve their next meal rather than have himself crawl in the machine once more. The idea still sent shivers down his spine, though he pushed it aside knowing it would not happen again.

"The stuff I had wasn't that bad." He mentioned, hoping that his two cents would mean anything to his friends. If it was packaged that meant it was safe, right? He couldn't recall feeling unwell from food the day before, but for all he knew it was just a lucky draw. "Alright, its better to check than all of us getting sick from food poisoning. It would suck to get sick a second time." Unable to argue, and not that he disagreed, Eleroo stood and followed after the dragon. "It's nice to have food at hand." He mused absently as he stared at the lifeless vending machines. "I think I wake up from the rumble of my own stomach more than I do from nightmares."


"Yes," was all Seek needed to hear to have her heart sink. That Pokemon was an active threat. "He skulked toward the Center and passed the center point again shortly after. He left again recently, with another, and was the last Pokemon to pass by." With each word Uxie spoke the Aiveon felt herself go colder and colder. Of course, of all the Pokemon that could have seen  her trail it would be that one. The one that was willing to attack, the one that glared daggers and had some sort of vendetta against them. With a labored swallow the eeveelution took a step away, and turned her head as she could no longer hold eye contact. This was all her fault..

"What does that mean?" She practically whimpered through her whispered voice. "That he went to get back up, a second opinion?" The cold feeling spread throughout her body but her heart was on fire as it beat. It could mean a lot of bad things but one was for certain; they were running out of time. Hopping past Uxie and the end of the couch the Aiveon stood on her hind paws and looking out the window. The pouring rain looked the same as it did last night, aside from the sunlight, and she couldn't see any Pokemon coming to run them out. Pressing her face to the glass she strained to see anything but could only watch as drops of rain ran down the glass, fishbowling her view.

Backing away from the window the Aiveon stared with wide eyes. She had just woken up but sleep already felt like it happened years ago. What if the other Pokemon had used that time to plot, to plan, to wait for them to awaken? Uxie had seen several, they could be surrounded for all she knew. We're wasting time. The stress quickly seeped throughout her body, screaming at her to take action and move. Bounding on her heels the Aiveon practically flew across the floor as she bolted for the center of the room. "We need to leave!" She announced, her voice shrill with stress.

Eleroo's head whipped around, his red eyes wide as he looked at her. "What?" He muttered, wanting more information or clarification before letting himself panic. His gaze flipped between Seek and Uxie, wanting for answers. "Is there someone outside?" Seek shrank down to the floor, a foolishness and shame burning hot beneath her pelt. Her jaw quivered, the words refusing to come. "Well, no.." She managed to choke, her voice growing sheepish as she tried to form a ration thought. "But they've been to the Center! They are probably plotting an attack right now!" Eleroo could only stare as the vixen whined, unsure what to make of her fears. He looked at the others, trying to figure how they felt about a sudden departure. Suddenly, his own head hung low, reminded how he would be little other than a burden once the time came.

Shenron dropped the snacks he had collected into a novelty bag and tensed up hearing Seek's cry. He peeked at her listening to the exchange between Seek and Eleroo. "Hold on kit, don't be the child who cried fire in a burning building without seeing or smelling something... We can't be certain until they attack or get close can we?" He said this because not all of them had been fortunate enough to rest all night. Shenron shook his head pointing to the snacks he had gathered so far. "At the very least eat something and think about it. I understand your concerns and fears. Let's keep the atmosphere calm so we make rational decisions" His own fears were up and running now but he hid it well and sat down holding a bag of popcorn in his hands starting to pop it. He knew it was extremely childish to think if he just didn't think about it then it wouldn't happen. But hyperfixating on it would just stress the kit out more.
