Pallet Town [Beside the Memorial Tree] | Dawn | 37
"Born and raised, years ago, until I left to become a Pokemon master, like all kids, with Umbreon here." The faces of her human kids flash much too clearly across her crystal gaze. At one time she may of been their starter, their companion for a Pokemon journey when the world was pure, but they were dead now. Youre fault. You attracted those undead. Snapping her eyes shut the pictures wont leave. Those awful, awful pictures of the innocent both yelling hatred her and screaming for their lives... Im sorry.. They can never forgive you. She chokes on the truth. I didnt mean to.. That wouldnt fix anything.
In one swift movement Khan lifts her, the cat making a tiny surprised squeak before falling completely silent. "I-I'm sorry, I need to-- Mew is my friend and she's..." Bundled up in a tight ball her thoughts race long with Khan. A Legend was hurt? Legends could be hurt? There was multiple nearby.. oh no please dont be dying. If they interrupted a funeral.. she'd just lose it if she had to watch a legend die. Could legends.. die? What if their was a fight, a fight that even the legends needed help with?? So many thoughts swirl through her mind that time is lost. It seems like only a few seconds pass before she is placed back on the ground, legs wobbly and weak for no reason.
Looking up her entire body is pierced with icy terror, knees bending her into a crouch. Is that.. Suicune?! Not only that but Zapdos and the tiny shape of Mew. The stories are true.. The legends were here, they were real. Khan was kneeling, sobbing out praise as she merely stared with her wide eyes. How was someone like her, someone so insignificant able to be in the presence of legends? "F-forgive me.. f-f-for intr-ruding.." She manages to sputter weakly as the pink legend floats closer. Unworthy filth. It was true. Peasant. She didnt deserve to even be in their presence. Legends are real. And they were in this... cursed city. Are they here to vanquish the dragons?
Though Mew had moved closer and spoke it was the mighty bird that her eyes were locked on. The storm bringer.. For the love of.. er, anything else, she begged for the Electric bird to please keep those at bay. "This is Khan, as he said.... He's my friend, and is very important to me. He was of great help to me last I was here.... I consider him to be equal to us... him and any companions he may have..." Arsi's body shook violently. No that was a lie. Khan was worthy, so very worthy of great things while she was just a mess. She was a mess that was cowering before creatures that were meant to protect the world. They all look so pained.. hardships clear on their worn faces ans she was afraid of them?! They had to deal with the Epidemic, the omnipresence, and she was being submissive.. "M-mew! Are you.." What right does she have to address a god?!
"Sounds like you deserve Legends status more than me, heh... Welcome Khan, I am Zapdos. I wish we could meet under... nicer circumstances--" BOOM. Far off thunder roars in her ears, popping the cat off the ground for a moment. Not thunder, anything but thunder. Please.. please keep the storms away.. The cat flattens against the ground, forepaws covering her ears in a desperate attempt to block at the sound.
But its useless. The thunder roars, sending her heart on a marathon of panic. Gotta hide, gotta hide! But how could she hide from Legends? How could she even think to move without dishonoring them further?? "YOU! You will fry!!" Her eyes flash open, unaware of who the great bird was referring to. "No!" Zapdos was no longer before her but instead a massive monster made of yellow. A grizzled face like a jack-o-lantern, no discernible shape, cackling laughter and screeching. What was this creation.. BOOM, BOOM. The thunder, the lightening. Legends stop it, just stop it all! "Please, stop!" She cries, eyes wide like saucers but looking at no one as she skitters to the side. Why, why now! The hallucination grew larger under it swamped her vision. It was no longer a Pokemon, it was hardly a demon, just a giant sun-colored mass of evil.
"Zapdos!" Khan! No matter what it seemed his voice was always clear. "Stop! He means no harm!" Who meant no harm, Zapdos? Because this thing clearly did and she could no longer see Zapdos. Another BOOM, with a flash of lightening, and shes done. A second longer and her life would be over. RUN. Die maggot. Letting pure fear and instinct guide her paws the feline moves in one fluid motion, the soil beneath her flying to the side as she dug her way down. Dig had never done her much as an attack but it always seemed to save her hide. Pathetic. Pathetic..
