The Battle Arcade | Afternoon | (127)(57)

Temporary peace filled the room. Like a gunshot right beside you, the lack of sound was so ironically loud in the Eon siblings ears, having moments before been filled with the vicious sounds of battle.

"G-ghost..?" Mel’s voice was hushed, the one quiet word taking strain to be heard by the Joltie and Eevee. "A ghost?!" The room immediately felt colder, more dangerous as a trick of the mind. Undead were one thing and a bad enough sundae on their own, a maniacal ghost with obvious hostile intentions was a cherry they didn’t order. Faux’s skepticism waned as the team accepted, albeit with heavy disdain, their issues also included Casper the not so friendly ghost. "If it's a ghost then we have bigger problems." Yeah. Like being snatched up out of nowhere for Arceus knows what…

Meanwhile the lioness turned her attention to the space where the eyes had been. Now free of undead targets for the moment, Amber fired a bolt of electricity at the location. Everything was pure light, like a firework had gone off inches from their momentarily blinded eyes. The loud, crackling electricity faded. The room was now quiet, the air heavy. Adrenaline continued pumping as the darkness smothered them, making the unease infinitely worse as the idea of being watched sunk in and became paranoia.
Miyu was obviously affected worse by the feeling but her brother was on edge, whether it was obvious or not. Things continued to spiral downwards.

"Did it.." Cinder’s voice broke the silence, "did she get it?"
"We would have seen it," Faux responded. "Even a ghost would have to be corporeal before fading."
Miyu let out a small, drawn out whine in chagrin before Rebel nudged her to be quiet.

"Then what could of--" The Quilava was silenced before another word as everything lit back up-- the board and the lights themselves felt like they were taunting the Pokémon, showing no mercy as the game continued.

"Game No. 2 has been completed. Victory is awarded to the challenger!"

It didn’t feel like much of an achievement…

“Where are you going?” Rebel asked matter-of-factly as his sibling paced away, nose leading her towards the scent of metal.
“Arry,” she stated simply. The room may have been full of shed blood, but it was old, it was rotten. Her nose caught whiffs of clean iron free from illness, leading the kit to an overturned box. He was scared…

“Arry, are you alright?” She asked gently. “The bad ones are gone for now, but more might show up…” If a fair warning was all she could provide...

The Battle Arcade | Afternoon
Etincelle 103 | Melanie 112


The loud and sudden crackle of electrically made Mel react without thought. Her legs buckled, dropping her down into a crouch as the hissing soared overhead. That's not Etin. It couldn't be, he was beside her and that sound started too far away. It wasn't on the right side to be from Rebel's voice, so that meant.. The Luxray? What had it attacked, was she helping or hurting them? She didn't hear anymore undead. "Face us!" It roared, confirming the fox's suspicion, and while the others quickly verified it tried to attack this new threat nothing came out of it.

"Even a ghost would have to be corporeal before fading." Faux's words sent a fresh chill down Mel's spine. "We don't know if it is a ghost." She swallowed roughly. I was just throwing out an assumption. Static continued to buzz in her ears, the quiet room now void of moans but lacking calm. Overhead, the screeching voice chimed in again with a, "Game No. 2 has been completed. Victory is awarded to the challenger!" That was a good thing.. right? Beside her, Etin's fur brushed coarsely against her flanks. "These things usually come in three's, don't they?" While she couldn't see his face the fox knew he was concerned, and making a valid assumption himself. "Let's hope not. We shouldn't need a tie breaker."

Etincelle shook out his pelt and let the hairs settle lightly back against his body. Whatever was left, regardless of what it was, seemed to be avoiding them. It was sticking to the shadows and only launched a ranged attack, its form still hidden. Now that they all knew it was there as long as they were vigilant it shouldn't be able to sneak up on them. With a light sigh the Electrike wondered what they should do next when Miyu marched purposefully past him. For a moment, he wondered if she had seen something that needed investigating, but her next move instead just tore at his heartstrings.

“Arry, are you alright?” The Eevee called gently as he padded after her. The poor thing. Despite all the fighting and pain, the kid was probably having a worst time of them all. "Arry?" He echoed the Eevee, trying to sound as sweet as possible to calm the child. “The bad ones are gone for now, but more might show up…” Arching his head back Etin looked out at the field of rotten, mangled bodies that now littered the battlefield. This was no place for a child.. "You've been really brave Arry," he cooed, smiling gently. "Can you keep being brave for a little bit longer?"

The fighting continued for a while and Arry kept himself quiet as much as he could. Somehow though he didn't feel alone. Something was in their with him and around him at the same time. Like something had been there waiting for them. "Game No. 2 has been completed. Victory is awarded to the challenger!" That eerie voice from the speaker sounded off again and the fighting stopped along with it. Arry started pushing the box again trying to get uncovered when he heard Miyu speak. “Arry, are you alright?” Miyu? Where is she at? The child tried to find where she was but all he could see was darkness. What she said next made him feel the need to get the box off of him. “The bad ones are gone for now, but more might show up…” More mean pokemon? What a horrible day he's already having. He lost to many things and the fact his fears continue to interfere with his judgment. He wanted to get stronger and fight against the mean pokemon. Somehow he felt a little brave spurt coming up.

Another voice had spoken and it sounded like Etin. "Arry?" Etin must of been worried for Arry after all that fighting. The steel type still couldn't figure out where the voices are coming from but he had to do something. "You've been really brave Arry," Arry didn't know about that. The kid still felt terrified somewhat. "Can you keep being brave for a little bit longer?" If he could call a box on top of him being brave. Still with nowhere to see any light he started pushing it more until he started bumping into something that felt like a solid wall. But as he got tried to push again he bumped his head on the side and the box didn't move any further. "Owwie, that hurt." So he shifted over to another side and started pushing again and moved along the floor to try once more to getting it off him.

Each push continued to make the box move; ultimately he bumped into something else and it felt like a leg with metal. It must be the luxray. "Um, c-can you g-g-get this off of m-me?" He wasn't sure if Amber would hear him, but he didn't know if it was her in front of him or not. He heard something smack the box and it was a thud like that of a tail smacking against it. Perhaps it could be Faux as well. He waited for someone to lift the box up and while he waited, he tapped his tiny claws onto the floor a bit silently to listen to the sounds it makes. It didn't sound like the floor out there. It was more hard and not as amusing. "I wanna go play with my toy again. This place is scary still." That he can't deny since coming into this room that it has done nothing but scare him more and more. At least though the box made it easier to hide from the undead pokemon that they was fighting.

The Battle Arcade || Afternoon | 22


Amber's clenched fangs parted slowly with saliva strings hanging between them as she stared at the empty ceiling. She could still see the hidden figure within, but it gave no signs of being wounded by her attack. Coward! It would choose to hide rather than fight or even flee? To attack from the shadows as a pitiful excuse despite itself? A growl rippled through her throat muscles. With her focus placed, she could feel its power now. The thing was no pushover, and such behavior was nothing but cowardice.  

A pair of Pokemon passed her, their distance kept, but she paid them no mind as her baleful red eye stared at the one spot. How could they carry on with their own desires while a daemon hung upon them like a looming storm cloud? Amber trashed her battered tail, the voices of the passing Pokemon surprising close and interrupting her garbled thoughts. She took a few paces forward and rejudged her distance and the angle needed to launch another attack. The thing had not moved, she should attack again! She would teach it that she was aware of its presence! Spacing out her paws the big cat let an orb of light start to form at her jaws when a horrified gasp brushed her ear fur, and something straight-edged thunked against her leg.

"Um, c-can you g-g-get this off of m-me?"

The voice was muffled, barley an interest to the large predator as she bent her neck and over breathed with a gaping maw. The hard tinge of metal brushed her palate, along with dusty material and the buried scent of something living. The last was faint, barely a tickle to her hunting instincts compared to the pungent taste of fear scent, but the cat did growl in response to the taste of iron. The crate shifted slightly, the movement catching her eye's attention. Whatever the creature had said, she had missed it, but its distraction was enough to send irritation prickling down her pelt. It would pay for this mistake.

Shifting her weight onto her haunches Amber reared up and brought her massive forepaws down on the crate. A gasp rang out nearby, but the sound was drowned beneath the creaking of the wood as she put more and more pressure upon it. The crate splintered, bowing inward beneath her weight while the sides pushed outwards. Each slate suffered, cracking and shifting until massive gaps formed between them. Small noises outside the snapping drew her attention downward, and she dropped her head to peer between the splintered sheet.

The small tinge of silver did not interest her. It reeked of iron, a substance of her cruelty, but did not hold the same pain that it had once brought to her. This was something different. Dragging her claws forward the cat growled bitterly as she scoured long gashes in the wood, and as they caught the raised edge it tipped with her weight. What remained of the crate toppled toward her, forcing the cat to back up and blocking her view of the child. Her interest faded, irritation sparking through her pelt as her tail lashed, and realization that she forgot her real prey flung the cat's head around.

She stared hard at the wall, her x-ray vision peering through the dense material like a sheet of rice paper. Though the darkened ceiling could hide things from normal eyes it could not hide a hidden figure from her, but still it remained empty.
In her careless distraction she had lost her prey; the creature had moved.

The Battle Arcade || Afternoon
Cinder 121 || Faux 92


"These things usually come in three's, don't they?" Faux's ears flicked toward Etincelle's voice. That was very possible. A three set match was often standard, and they had already completed two. The third would be pointless now, unless this place was set for a progressive challenge. The fox felt a chill run through her spine. With undead as the enemy they wouldn't stop at a loss, but at death. Endless 'challenges' until we finally succumb. What a cruel, pointless way to go out. We can't let that happen. Taking a few hurried steps toward the roulette board the fox stared at it while her body was on high alert. The lights were chasing and flashing in a way not like before. Had something happened to it when the power faltered?

Cinder couldn't stay nearly as still. Peeling her eyes off the board she watched the others head toward the boxes Arry had hid in, but before they could truly check on the kid he started creeping away from the sounds of their voices. Horror dropped in the pit of her stomach like a stone as she watched him inch all the way to their undead alley, and panic lit her nerves on fire. The cat's eye was wild, as though the battle had not ended for her, and while others starting racing for the crumbling crate Cinder's paws were rooted to the spot, voice gone. Scenarios ran through her head like bolts of lightening, how could they be so foolish, but before she could watch yet another Pokemon die before her eyes, the cat turned away, the box broken, and interest lost.

Cinder puffed out a held breath, relieved and a bit disappointed in herself that she had doubted their tentative alley. While her gaze still lingered on them her focus was lost. Cinder's paws were shaking, her mentality just as unsteady as she tried to find her center. There has to be a way to get out. Their hidden foe aside, they were still trapped in here in a sea of dead, rotting bodies. Was Faux's door viable? Could they find a way to get up to it? Taking in ragged breaths the Quilava turned to follow both the Luxray's and Faux's gazes. They were staring at the roulette board, its lights chasing and flickering strangely while its back-lit panels glowed and darkened. The fur along her shoulders stood stiffly. Was it getting ready to start a new round? Were about to face yet another set of abused enemies? She swallowed as the overhead lights started to flash once more.

The flashing stopped with the room being even darker than before, as though only a third of the lights remained lit. The glow of the game board blazed against her retinas, with only her personal flames standing testament against it. The panels stopped flashing, and the lights fell into a constant chasing pattern. The piercing shriek of the intercom came back, followed by a voice that was only vaguely familiar. "Challenges, you have done well." The sound was off, no longer sounding like a recording despite the voice being the same. Faux dropped her torso defensively, tails fanning out as she slowly slide her paws back. "Be on guard!" She called back to the others. While the next round was expected, the board came back with a question instead. "Do you think yourselves worry of our challenge?"
