Mahogany Town (Hideout) | Evening
{24}

It was Ariana's harsh footsteps-more like stomps, really-that caught Daisy's attention just in time to see her kick the young boy with blue hair, knocking him to the ground. She flinched when both him and his companion shout, nearly in unison, and the sharp, homophobic insult Ariana aims at the boy feels like a needle was stabbed into her chest. It's a pain that's all too familiar. As the Rocket woman goes off on her rant about her hostage's supposed uselessness, Daisy can only watch and pray that her words about killing him are just that-words, thrown out to keep the prisoners in check. That might only be a false hope, but she didn't want to hear gunshots. She didn't want Mars to have to watch her friend die in front of her.

Even though it involved treating the rest of them as mere resources, Archer manages to talk her out of killing the boy. She left him alone after one final, gruesome threat, but tension still kept its stranglehold on the very atmosphere of the room as more time passed. Fenix and Tyranny had yet to return, and after her violent outburst, being in the same room as Ariana feels as though Daisy and the others are stuck in the same cage as a starving animal; something awful happening was inevitable. She'd wished for one of her Pokemon to be by her side earlier, but now, she knows it's best that they stay out of sight. Better that than to be a potential target.

After all, once Ariana orders Archer away, it's clear to Daisy that the ones who remain are obvious enough targets themselves. The apprehension and dread that'd already carved itself into her only worsens once their one ally on the opposite side is gone; she can only hope that everyone who left returns before anything ugly can happen.

At last, she removed her foot from his chest.

It would be nice if she did this because her tantrum was over, but no; her next victim was Archer. Not that Saturn noticed this, too busy sucking lungfuls of air down to pay attention to much else. Did she break anything? He tried to sit up, will himself to stop trembling, Ariana's screaming at Archer a dull roar in the back of his head as he took stock of the damage. No, nothing felt that sore-

Gentle ribbons twined around him, easing him up, helping Saturn drag himself up into a sitting position. "Don't be afraid," the Sylveon soothed in a soft voice. "You aren't alone, I promise."

"Th-thanks," he coughed, touching a hand to his ribs. Ow. Sore. But no, not broken. He pressed his back flat to the wall behind him as though he could scoot further away from the raging woman, the pain from what had just happened warring with Flynn's comforting aura. Hesitantly he reached a trembling hand up to pet the Sylveon's head, automatically, then remembered himself in time--this isn't Hellena; you can't just pet a pokemon you don't know--

"S-sorry." He turned red, eyes sliding back over to Ariana. He shivered and looked to Mars.

Mars had sat back down, red eyes burning, burning, burning; if they could literally light someone on fire, Ariana would have exploded to bits.

I hate you. I hate you. I hate you. You monster.

How could she? Why would she?

It was a really stupid question; the answer to both was 'because she can.'

This was exactly the kind of shit she'd fought so hard to eliminate. This was what they were supposed to wipe out of existence. This animal who violated people and struck them and humiliated them for no other reason than it made her feel better and she could get away with it.

If they had succeeded all those years ago, she wouldn't exist.

Her palms' screams of pain finally registered and she relaxed her grip, inspecting the half-moons of blood her nails had left behind. She'd bandage them before they started digging again.

Right now she'd like to keep fantasizing about Giratina squashing Ariana flat.

Across the room, Saturn bit his lip. Mars was beyond furious. He winced when she inspected her hands, aware of what she was doing and why.

That he could do nothing but sit here and watch her stew and not even attempt to reassure her--and maybe beat back some of those thoughts about wishing Cyrus had succeeded--was one of the worst feelings of helplessness he'd ever felt. She was upset.

And trying to make her feel better would only make her more upset, because Ariana would murder him.

"Shit-"


Archer hadn't thought he'd sneaked up on Fenix. His footsteps had been the only sound in the corridor, echoing far too much for his liking. He'd heard every footfall, every breath, every rustle of fabric as he moved with painful clarity, as if his entire body had been miked and the sounds projected from dozens of speakers. So when she jerked in surprise, injuring her hand and falling back, Archer's heart dropped into his stomach and his face drained of color. Oh... Oh no.

He didn't move as the woman stood near him and they both watched in horror as the clicks of the traps unlocking made their way cheerily down the hall. And while Fenix seemed to be waiting for some sort of explosion, Archer knew better. His breaths nothing more than shaking gasps, his ears strained to hear the telltale noises of what those traps did hold. His stomach plummeted into his feet when the red eyes appeared. Fenix took a step forward and he reached out to stop her, but both were too struck by fear to move beyond those initial steps.

Fenix's flashlight suddenly sprang to life and illuminated the Electrode rolling toward them, others joining it.  "Fuck..." was her initial word, and though it was appropriate, it was quite the understatement. She grabbed him, forcibly pulling him out of his stupor and back toward the room where they'd left everyone waiting.  "Fuck fuckfuckfuck we gotta go. Archer- move it!"

He sprang to life, Tyranny already halfway back to the hole. Shit. There was no telling when and how those Electrode would detonate. If those monsters did explode, it could bring the entire building down on them. Fuck. Fuck, fuck. How did they get out of this? They needed to one-shot each of them, which they didn't even know how many there were. How... How were they getting out of this?

Archer let Fenix go ahead into the tunnel before ducking in himself, barely keeping his expression controlled. Ariana even seemed to pick up on it, and her eyes looked between the two of them before settling on Fenix with a glare. "What did you do?"

"The traps were triggered," Archer quickly replied, trying to divert Ariana's anger away from the blonde. He quickly looked about the room, seeing that the younger ones were separated, and that there was still a bit of lingering tension from earlier. But that didn't matter. "Several Electrode are coming this way. They can't fit through the hole, but it won't take them long to create one large enough. Plus, the structural integrity of the building will not withstand such power."

"Shit!" she hissed. With a last glare to Fenix, she looked around herself. "Someone better come up with a plan, because I'm about to start chucking people at them as fodder. Starting with the smallest, most useless one here." She glared down at the little blue-haired shit stain, and once more, Archer interrupted her line of thinking.

"No! We can't have them exploding inside the building, Ariana," Archer hissed, trying to pull the hostages one by one closer to the actual door that led outside. He held out a hand for Max to take, knowing the wounds on her back would impede her progress and speed. He wasn't entirely sure if he could get her out alive.  "There's other solutions. Does anyone here have a Pokemon with the Damp ability, or something similar? That prevents attacks like Explosion and Self-Destruct from going off?"

"Th-thanks." Flynn offered a small smile to the injured boy and sat down patiently at his side, watching Ariana out of the corner of his eye as he continued to press his aura towards Saturn. She was still pacing like a caged animal but after Archer's distraction she hadn't turned her attention back to her previous victim. Instead she seemed lost in her own mind as her fury continued to boil just under the surface. Dangerous, yes, but it offered them all a moment of respite until the next eruption.

His attention only drew away from Ariana when a hand came near his head before startling and drawing back. "S-sorry." Flynn's tail curled slowly as he watched Saturn war with himself about trying to pet him and answered the boy's question for him by leaning forward and bumping his head against Saturn's hand, letting it rest there until he got the hint and began to scratch. He wouldn't be allowed to purr, for fear of drawing Ariana's attention, but the physical contact would help soothe the both of them. "Don't worry about it."




Fenix was glad Archer didn't require any more prompting to move his ass and her long legs drew her back to the entrance nearly as quickly as his Persian who had a head start on her. Dragging herself back through the hole, tearing the bottom of her shirt and ripping a large hole near her stomach, Fenix practically dropped out of the hole and onto the floor. Flynn jumped as he watched the blonde hit the floor and barely catching herself on her feet, moving away from Saturn with a small nuzzle to go check on her. The panic was rolling off of them in waves-

"What did you do?"

It was no surprise to anyone the rushed return triggered Ariana's bad attitude but before Fenix could put her own two cents in Archer quickly and flatly explained the situation. They didn't have time for drama and Fenix knew she would get caught in it if she said anything. "The traps were triggered. Several Electrode are coming this way. They can't fit through the hole, but it won't take them long to create one large enough. Plus, the structural integrity of the building will not withstand such power."

"Shit!" Ariana hissed angrily, glaring at Fenix who only gave her an ugly frown in response. "Someone better come up with a plan, because I'm about to start chucking people at them as fodder. Starting with the smallest, most useless one here."

"No! We can't have them exploding inside the building, Ariana," Archer tried to reason, already stressing that Ariana's solution was to kill everyone. "There's other solutions. Does anyone here have a Pokemon with the Damp ability, or something similar? That prevents attacks like Explosion and Self-Destruct from going off?"

Fenix shook her head. "Not really my area. I have one Pokemon that could take out electrics pretty easy but-" she turned to look at Ariana with a level glare. "She's a little indisposed, at the moment. Everyone else I have wouldn't be able to take them out before they exploded, at least not without the lot of them all going at once in a coordinated strike."

There was a sudden flurry of activity when Fenix squeezed back through the hole so quickly that she tore her shirt in her haste. The movement and raised voices brought Max back to the present, and it didn't take a genius to figure out something went wrong. However, her heart stopped, and the blood drained out of her face when she heard "Electrode." She all but tuned out the squalling redhead's snipes as Max quickly ran through what she still had on her person to defend herself with. Her hand itched as she reached into her pocket to pull out her designated powerhouse, but she stopped herself as she remembered who she was with. Sadly, she looked up at Misty, and the Ponyta was trembling.

The sight of the pony being so afraid made up Max's mind, and she steeled herself. She shakily stood up and flinched as she threw her bag onto her back; there was nothing she could do about that now, and she couldn't afford the bag sitting awkwardly on her front this time. The burning sensation was currently ignorable, though, and the adrenaline helped her focus on the problem at hand. A hand reached out to her, and she was stunned when she realized who it was. Archer was trying to help her? Knowing that she needed to do this, she accepted his offer as she grabbed his hand. "There's other solutions. Does anyone here have a Pokemon with the Damp ability, or something similar? That prevents attacks like Explosion and Self-Destruct from going off?"

Unfortunately, she had no such Pokemon with her, so she shook her head in apology. "Sorry..." However she looked Misty, and gave her a short order. "Agility."

That snapped the Ponyta out of her freeze response enough to make her respond, "Wh-what?"

"Agility. You're gonna need it. Electrode are stupid fast."

"B-but..."

"Agility. Whether you run or fight, you need to be fast." Her voice was tinged with urgency.

Misty gulped, but with her human grounding her to the here and now, she finally nodded as her body glowed faintly blue.

Something is wrong-that much is obvious when Fenix tears through the hole in the wall as though her life depends on it, Archer and his Persian not far behind. Something sent them into a panic, but what, Daisy has no idea. She’s almost afraid to hear what has gone wrong.

"The traps were triggered,” Archer says when Ariana questions them, ”Several Electrode are coming this way. They can't fit through the hole, but it won't take them long to create one large enough. Plus, the structural integrity of the building will not withstand such power."

Electrode? Legends, Daisy had been expecting something bad, but this was something else entirely. Her fear over learning what had panicked them had been right. If those Pokemon were to self-destruct in these fragile, close quarters... well, Archer had already spelled it out for them. They could easily be buried alive. The thought alone makes her sick to her stomach.

"Shit! Someone better come up with a plan, because I'm about to start chucking people at them as fodder. Starting with the smallest, most useless one here."

What the hell-that wouldn’t help; she’d just get them all killed! Was Ariana really so spiteful that she’d risk blowing up a building with herself still in it, just to get rid of one young man? The idea alone is so petty and evil, Daisy can believe she might actually go through with it if given the chance.

"No! We can't have them exploding inside the building, Ariana," Archer protests, "There's other solutions. Does anyone here have a Pokemon with the Damp ability, or something similar? That prevents attacks like Explosion and Self-Destruct from going off?"

”I’m sorry, I don’t,” Daisy answers, though it looks like she’s not the only one. That’s not much of a reassurance. Truthfully, her options to help are limited; Maggie and Snowy are a no-go, she won’t dare risk them, and they’re not battlers anyways. That left her Porygon-Z and Blastoise. One’s not going to take them all out by themself, and the other is a Water-type. Not only that, Daisy also doesn’t want to see what a powerful Surf might do to this place. That, however, leaves her with nothing useful to offer.

"Don't worry about it." Saturn, despite everything, managed a little smile of gratitude when the Sylveon moved forward and shoved his head against his hand.

For that tiny second, everything felt... better. Not okay, but better. Tiny mercies were always appreciated.

And it was gone in an instant. Pandimonum erupted and Mars and Saturn, unable to actually move closer together, were stuck sending terrified glances across the room to one another as they scrambled up, Saturn making sure he didn't accidentally step on Flynn.

"Shit! Someone better come up with a plan, because I'm about to start chucking people at them as fodder. Starting with the smallest, most useless one here." She glared at him, and he paled. What the hell did he do? Was she really this mad over them being friends?

Like hell you will!

"No! We can't have them exploding inside the building, Ariana," Archer pointed out, and the stress was so thick Mars thought she could see it hanging over the room. Their survival hinged on Archer talking sense into a madwoman. "There's other solutions. Does anyone here have a Pokemon with the Damp ability, or something similar? That prevents attacks like Explosion and Self-Destruct from going off?"

Both shook their heads, stomachs sinking as they sent nother quick glance at one another.

No, they had no partners who would be of help, here. And, Mars realized as sweat trickled down the back of her neck, anything that could dispose of them quickly would be unusuable because ground types in a building were a recipie for disaster.

(This is so bad and I am so sorry but it's just not getting any better. ><)
