The serpent rose, climbing higher until she was before the dark cavern's threshold. She grumbles to herself, hating that she was going to accommodate to these land-lovers in a damn cave that she loathed just because they needed to breathe. You're losing your touch.
Spouting out a mouthful of bubbles she headed into the gap in the rocks, avoiding her own thoughts.
Afternoon sunlight filtered in, the breeze pushing the waters surface too and fro. The water wasnt that deep anymore, perhaps ten feet at most in this cave, with plenty of room for air to swirl above. Why in the hell did I accept this.
The surface moved constantly, making tiny plops and shifting everything for the Huntail that was water-bound. At least at the bottom of the water the only thing that moved were currents an suction force, not fucking air
. "Rest while you can. They wont bother you out here."
She said as the others trail in, technically meaning she could ditch them now. After all, she had no business with them anymore and finding safety that worked for them
had been more then they deserved out of her. She had no reason to help them any longer and if anything they now had a debt to her for saving their lives and
finding them a shelter. Ya dont deserve it.
Her gold eyes lock on the Floatzel, eying her suspiciously. It seemed her original observations had been correct- she didnt smell of rot and displayed no purple splotched or glowing red eyes. Clean enough.
The way it gasped for air and flopped over in exhaustion was a good sign of being living and not bloodthirsty. Good.
At least she didn't have to worry about that right now, she seemed too tired to put up a fight anyway. Turning away from her the Huntail coils up into a small ball. So this was it. Sitting in some small, shallow-watered cave with Pokemon she really did not want to associate with while her home was overrun by little shits. Just kill me.
How did she get herself into this mess?
The Poliwag flapped and paddled her tail as hard as she could. It was hurting, it was hurting and hard to move but she kept going in the direction she hoped
was the right way. She was a good swimmer, and definitely faster in the water then on land, but by no means could she go as fast at everyone else. "Please wait!"
She wails but she can't even see either of their blue shapes anymore. A fearful loneliness pangs at the childs heart. All she could follow now is the orange dot that was growing further and further away. She didn't know what it was but it seemed to be going the same way the others had. Dont leave me behind!
She paddles harder, seeing the orange shape go higher toward who knows what.
Bell panted, her chest tightening with worry and labored breaths. Why wouldn't they wait.. she didn't understand. She couldnt keep up even when she tried her hardest.. The orange blob vanished and panic clouds her thoughts. No, no she didn't want to be alone! She didn't want to be alone in this unknown place with those things
chasing after them. Forcing herself to use the last burst of her strength the Poliwag speeds up and spots the cave entrance. Woah, that was cool looking! Even in her fear she instantly recgonized an interesting location. If nothing else it wasn't open ocean and she could rest in there. Just maybe the others were there too.
Swimming up and into it Bell's eye goes wide as she releases a relieved sigh. The other Pokemon were in here, and they had stopped running! She found the others and a new cool place to explore that wasnt the ship! Her wide eyes look around in awe, taking in the structures and other Pokemon in here. The Huntail was here, did that mean they could explore this without problem since she wasnt yelling for once? Her mind swirls with questions but also fatigue. Noticing a flat rock jutting out of the water the child leaps out of the water and flops down on top of it. She made it.. she found them and didnt get left behind.. Panting and feeling every muscle in her body aching for once she doesn't have the strength to argue or explore. She was just.. tired.. Ill just rest here a bit.
One question remains in her mind though, something she cant let go of. Why did those Pokemon attack them? They were.. different.. somehow in a way she couldnt place her tail on. "Hey,"
She hears the Huntail say in a monotone voice, "Who are you?"
She was staring at the orange blob that Bell could now see was a weasel. Her dark brown eyes grow wide as they see the shiny shape sticking off the side of her hat. It was so pretty! "Wow, where did you get that, what is it ma'am?"
She asks, so excited she bounces back onto her small feet.
The Huntail lets another spout of bubbles trail upward from her gills. She almost wishes the Whiscash was still here. Almost. "Only going to say this once,"
She grumbles unwillingly, "Those little shits are Phione. They live in the upperhalf of that ship and most of the inside. They are cunning and kill any moron that thinks its a good idea to go explore."
The end of her tail flicks irritably. "I live at the very bottom. They dont usually go down that far unless something set them off. Like a big group of 'adventurers'.
Her gold eyes narrow, burrowing deeply into the Vaporeon. "Now those shit have taken my home as well."
The seething rage is mixed with an errie calm to her voice, a dangerous mix that obvious to see. What she wouldnt give to attack all these Pokemon. Even if she didnt kill them legends did she just want to sink her fangs into something
She mutters, forgotting what some would call the most important thing. "And Im Saferi."
What good were names anyway.
