Rae’s fingers slowly regained feeling with each passing moment she trudged with the Mightyena securely in her arms. His pelt whisked away the cold that threatened to turn into frostbite and for that she was very grateful.
She stopped briefly as a howl, distant and almost mournful, echoed through the mountainside.
"Soon my parents will pass and join the great pack. The mountain I've called home will fall silent and then it will know peace once more." His words were surprisingly collected, content even. He must’ve made peace with their passing long ago. How strong a soul this creature must’ve had…
"I've wondered this for some time. How do humans act with others?" Maka asked. She could see a smile on Drake’s face from her peripheral and hummed in thought.
“Well, no two humans are exactly alike.” Momma. Granny and Pop. “Some people are very kind and loving. They’ll go out of their way to assist other humans in their day to day lives, even if it’s a small gesture like holding a door or saying good morning.” Her dad. Vile. Evil. Self centered. “But some others are not kind. They hurt people, even ones they love to get what they want. These people are blights to humanity and make good people afraid.” She kicked a small mound of snow with her boot, realizing, awkwardly, how dark that became. “And then there are the inbetweeners. Wouldn’t sell their soul for you, but also wouldn’t push you off a cliff. Probably,” she laughed, trying to lighten the mood. “Did that answer your question?”

What kind of person am I?

Venge brushed against her leg, purring the word “Kind,” as though she had read her master’s very mind.

Rae watched in content silence as Arkturus bounded atop a picnic table and scanned the area. He announced a road in their path, a surefire way off this damn mountain. Roads always lead somewhere, right?
"Cool, we can take the road down and it should take us to the next route which would be easy. The mansion should be off the road a little ways but it should be just before we head into town." Drake confirmed. "Also I would be very excited to see how many of us will play games. Once we get there, I can light the fire in the fireplace so that it would feel nice and warm before night.
She could feel her stomach turning slightly queasy. No, no, controlled fire was fine… it would be fine.

The sight of the campground took Jack back to when he was a young pichu. Memories of the past when he went on his first trip to the campgrounds for a picnic with his trainer. The pokeblocks Jack had with his salad was always the best thing, but now everything is different. Jack's trainer was dead, his pokeball might have been destroyed in the process so that means he's no longer owned. The Pikachu spaced everyone out as if he was lost in his own memories. Eventually Jack snapped out of it, but when he did he stared down Finn with the intent he was planning. Yet, he held off on hitting Finn until they got to the mansion. Even Finn knew his punishment wouldn't be long until it is given to him.

Finn stayed quiet the entire time. No words could describe how much he hates himself right now and his own reasons for doing what he does. Not long after that he lets out a sigh as he knows that Jack is going to hit him. Suppose he does deserve it, but one thing he needs to get under control is when he's overly agitated in combat. Finn needed to remember that he's not the only one trying to survive out there. The others are pulling more than he has. Was it the fact he blames others for his own failures at evolving or was it that he keeps it bottled up inside him? Who's to say for sure, but one day he'll tell someone and get over it.

Jack looked around seeing Drake starting to navigate them. "He seems to know the way more than us. I haven't been to a campground in a long time. Last time I came to a camp was when me and my trainer had a picnic when I was a pichu. Thinking about it now still hurts. If only I'd known before hand." The pain still was shown, but at least his trainer was released from the nightmare that seemed to last forever. The wind had a light breeze though that made it feel at least not as bad to keep them cool on their travel to the mansion. "What do you think Ark? Do you think that there will be some medical supplies to treat Maka's leg at the mansion?" Of course though asking Ark for a second opinion on whether there is medical supplies for Maka or not would make their travels more longer. Jack looked at Maka who was showing some comfort still while being held was at least some relief to see trust from a wild pokemon. Maybe that's what the world needs now days is trust in each other to fight as one and survive. The road was close which was a good sign. All was left was to follow Drake and hopefully they won't run into any undead along the way.

He looked over at Jack when he asked about the medical supplies he'd pause a little and then look over at Maka, then to the trainer and the others with them. Then he'd look back to Jack "It's certainly possible they will have medical supplies, however we'll need to be prepared for the idea that there might not be. If that is the case.. we may need to risk a Pokecentre. I know.. it'll be dangerous." Ark would look out and away at the horizon as they would walk down the road now. He could remember his own wandering into such a place on the hunt for medical help only to encounter a virtual nightmare. Something he did not want to relive at all.

Ark shuffled slightly before picking up back at his regular walking speed "If we don't have any supplies for it, Rae might be able to treat it. I see humans look at their computers allot when doing things. Maybe one has information that could help?" He'd offer as a suggestion to them. It might not be the best suggestion by any means but it was likely one that may prove useful on the long term.

As Drake leads them all, he heard what both Ark and Jack was saying. Medical supplies was always a thing. Drake used to get hurt all the time as well as his human. As far as Drake knew, there was at least four areas in the mansion where there was medical supplies stored. Hopefully Maka would be able to hold out long enough for them to get there before his pain gets to much for him to handle through the day. If he was in Maka's place it would be simply nothing new to him, but he would gladly switch places with Maka so the Mightyena didn't have to deal with that injury. However Ark was on to something since humans do use computers quite a bit. Hopefully the connection would work out in this middle of nowhere.

Maka felt a slight discomfort but it wasn't really much to complain about. What Rae told him though it made sense to him. There are good people and there are people who are terrible. Even then, they are no less different than each other. As a pup, he has seen multiple mightyena go at each other over dumb things or rushing to conclusions without knowing things. So comparing it to his own daily life back then, it made perfect sense. "That's how my pack acted sometimes before all of this. My father had to settle the disputes amongst the pack." No matter how different things are, all of them are connected. Seeing the road that they're on now, its gotten so broken up that vegetation has grown from the cracks. There wasn't any signs of life outside of plant life as far as the eye can see. It was sad. Though the bird pokemon sang their songs, it was only a piercing of the silence until nightfall.

Drake looked back at Maka when he said those words. Suppose memories do have a longer impression than just saying. Maybe he could lighten up the mood. "Well since were on the road, maybe we can sing some songs or even make up a song that is as long as possible? I mean, we're all out here together so why not, right?" It would be cool to see what they all can make up while they walk to the mansion. As his human once said, it takes one to sing but its more fun to sing as a group. Since Jack is mostly a leader, he could start first.

The air was slowly warming. Though it remained cold the bitterness of the snow was dissipating with the lowering altitude. The old neglected pathway showed new life in the form of plants that popped up from its worn surface, free to sprout in the harshness of the mountainside. Kolven's paws were just grateful to be free of consistent patches of snow, and that his aching pads could finally warm up. In a way, it was like the environment itself was finally coming to life. Still, it did little to lighten his mood. He had gone quiet during their travels, keeping his pelt close to Clover's through she remained just as subdued. The others prattled on, filling the quiet between them with some conversation, but Kolven couldn't find it in himself to join in.

Jack asked Ark about medical supplies, a telling sign of his faith in and value in the lynx's opinion, but it was odd. Wouldn't Drake know more of what was in his old home, of a medicine cabinet of sorts? When he didn't add anything to it Kolven decided he would search the house for some if the need arose. Though his life was always aloof and free he had some experience with human dwellings that was both old and new. Then again.. would that be safe? Glancing to his side the tom watched his sister as she hobbled along. She was no doubt exhausted, and dragging her through and unfamiliar house could be dangerous. Though he trusted the others the idea of leaving her on her own always made him feel sick was dread. Maybe.. he should let Drake go through his own home.

The cat forced himself out of his thoughts. There was no need to be all broody, though it was understandable after the terror they had been through. Drake piqued, posing a suggestion for them all. "Well since were on the road, maybe we can sing some songs or even make up a song that is as long as possible? I mean, we're all out here together so why not, right?" All Kolven would muster was an amused smile and warm chuff. He still wasn't cheery enough to chat, let alone sing, but it would be entertaining to listen if the others gave it a go. "It's been a long time since Ive heard a real song." Most music had died out with the humans, and any singing nowadays was somber. I wonder if any of us even know a same song.

"What do you think Ark? Do you think that there will be some medical supplies to treat Maka's leg at the mansion?"

Jack’s question reminded Rae the invaluable commodity she was getting low on. It briefly crossed her mind that if she found medical supplies before anyone else, maybe it would be in her team’s best interest to supply themselves first in secret…

She shook her head, metaphorically throwing the idea out. No, that was horrible. Damn intrusive thoughts.

Ark responded, "It's certainly possible they will have medical supplies, however we'll need to be prepared for the idea that there might not be. If that is the case.. we may need to risk a Pokecentre. I know.. it'll be dangerous."

Rae nodded in agreement. “It’s sad irony, really… Pokémon Centers are supposed to be a sign of universal safety… now there’s raiders, traps, undead nests, or even undead that went there alive looking for help…” She sighed heavily. How awful the world had become. “If there’s any local clinics that are less obvious, we’re probably more likely to find supplies if looters don’t know it’s a medical facility.”

Plenty of those places offered her free supplies out of kindness, when her party was on its last leg and PokéCenters weren’t an option. How nice it would’ve been if she could’ve spent her life working in a place like that. Maybe in an alternate universe…

"If we don't have any supplies for it, Rae might be able to treat it. I see humans look at their computers allot when doing things. Maybe one has information that could help?" Arkturus suggested.
Rae hummed in thought. “The internet probably stopped working very early in the epidemic. But, if they have local copies of the information stored on the computers, it would be absolutely invaluable.” She paused to take a breath. “In my line of work, Pokémon Centers weren’t an option for us. I took care of most of my team’s injuries over the years. So I’m confident even without info I can at least keep our wounds free of infection.”

Jack couldn't imagine the state of the pokecenters being heavily raided, damaged or even destroyed. The Pikachu looks down the road seeing a lot of overgrown grass on the shoulders. It was times like these that he wished that the world would return to normal but even then it was impossible on its own. Drake's suggestion did sound kind of fun though as singing some song would help them keep their morale up. Since his trainer did listen to a lot of rock and roll back then, it would be keen for him to do that. Yet he just couldn't do it. The pain of his loss would be to much to handle right now. Though Drake did suggest something else like making up a song, it would be actually fun to do. Eventually, Jack had felt the gentle breeze that made their walk less tiresome. Guess Maka had been right on that. Good fortune smiles upon them.

Finn however felt like he had to not sing or anything that he felt was his own disgrace. Instead he kept hismelf silent in a way like a pout and wanting them to feel sorry for him, but he knew that his punishment would be coming, but when? It was only a matter of time before Jack would make his attack on him. The only wanker around here is me. I still don't trust the undead meowth but she hasn't done a thing to us so far. Perhaps Jack did see something in her. Yet I berated her like she was filth. This isn't like me to speak out of line. Bloody hell would I make any more problems. Once we get there then I'm gonna go on a self improving journey. Once I finish then I'll be mates with them again. So the Braixen thought as they made their way down the road.

Jack then started to sing. "This fair land, it was the best, but it was not supposed to be this way. But time has called for us to fight for the future. We are a team of misfits, but we're no weaklings. We are warriors and we fight in the name of the light." A start to the song was made and it was empowering in a way. Once they are emboldened by singing then they'll work more into fighting as one.

OoC)) Making up a song while they are walking so around possibly five to six cycles they'll be halfway to the mansion.
