Seek was right about that stuff. Guess only thing they need is to make the tropius look like its there and set a maximum amount of fear into them where it could keep the other pokemon from coming out to help their leader. ”Right, we just need them to buy what they’re seeing.” The Sylveon went and got what Seek needed for things. Though something tells him that the minute Uxie teleports them to where they need to be at, they’ll be on their own. At one point though the syvleon thought of a scary story that involved the grim reaper and it always had made him shudder in fear as well. The very visage of Death was always a fear that every pokemon dreads to see face to face. All they need is one to control the jaw and voice out enough to set a message in.

Felix returned with what Seek needed. ”Got them, though I have a feeling that we’ll be on our own for the return trip or escaping.” Should they be on their own, it would be basically taking extreme caution. Now that he said and got that thought out, it was time to get going.

His morbid suggestion had been heeded, and with a collective effort the small group decapitated the deceased and collected its head for later use. While the legend would never go back on his word or regret his choice the readiness the group showed to accept such a defiling and gruesome task spoke ill of their remaining morals. Would their bluff end up being real, the use of the head in later activities being more than a scare tactic? Or would it's presence alone serve to scar those Pokemon for life?

If events went south would these Pokemon go so far as to contaminate the shelter for those that claimed this sanctuary? Would they still refuse to acknowledge their intrusion upon this territory and multiple chances while shattering the lives of those that live here?

"You've made it clear you don't want to 'interfere' with this, but what about a little help?" Seek intruded upon his own thoughts with what appeared to be a humble request. The legend did not respond, as no query had been made, but turned to show that an audience was being given. "I've wasted our time.. could you just, I dunno, teleport us to their nesting ground, or their base, or anywhere closer? We don't have time to wander around."

Without knowing the locals true intentions every second was precious in recovering their lost safely. Though planning was key when wandering into an adder's nest they had dallied plenty with back and forth bickering. He refused to take a side, to truly align himself with either, though any outside perspective would say he was with the visiting group.

"Such use of my power is within my grasp. If it is your desire I shall lend you such a boon."

"Such use of my power is within my grasp. If it is your desire I shall lend you such a boon." Seek's face widened with frustration, her annoyance with the being growing and she fought to hold her own tongue. "Yes," she gasped between clenched teeth, "that would be most helpful." She had already asked for his assistance quite clearly. Why did he insist on always getting a second yes? Heck he didn't even say how much he'd be willing to help! Irritation itched in her paws worse than the scratching mud, but for all her mettle the kit managed to keep it together. Just be happy he's willing to move us. It would counter her wastes of time, and maybe give them an edge of surprise. Either way, it would only be beneficial.

"Right," she said firmly with all the confidence she could muster. "We get in, get Eleroo, and get out of this town." Maybe they wouldn't have to fight at all. Their bluff could go unused and thrown away without the Pokemon being any wiser. They could finally leave this godforsaken town and swamp behind... With a shake of her head Seek glanced at their prior shelter. It was in poor shape now, covered in undead blood and a body. Was there anything they needed to take? "We won't be coming back here." She said aloud, her mind trying to piece together logistics of taking extra food and water. It'd way them down in a scuffle, and they couldn't come back for it. We have to take the loss. Eleroo was more important than any snacks.

Walking closer to Felix she motioned for the small group to come together. "Twenty minute adventure?" She joked halfheartedly. Truth be told, for all their lollygagging they didn't come up with a plan. Nothing concrete, nothing about an escape. No telling of one for all or all for one. "Whatever happens.. remember the goal." If Eleroo was recovered.. nothing else mattered.

Shenron got everything together and came close with everyone. Unfortunately Seek was right. They couldn't and shouldn't come back. This place was good to them but it wasn't safe. Not anymore. Not to mention it was a good percentage of why they were leaving... He looked at Seek and nodded. The goal. Rescue the kit. Get out alive. Avoid casualties and damage. His tail lashed a bit behind him before he turcked his flame safely under his wing. "Rescue the kit, get out alive and avoid starting fights" Though as he repeated it vocally. He wasn't entirely sure...
Could they realistically get out without a fight..?

"We get in, get Eleroo, and get out of this town."

Such wishful thinking befit the youth as she rallied the others to her side. Bloodshed was never the answer, even in a life and death situation the legend knew there was always an out in teleportation. This situation would not be as forgiving due to numbers and motives, but the legend would not hang himself upon unnecessary emotions.

With the small party together it was a simple matter for Uxie to fly forward with his magic energy radiating. The faint glow upon his gems only indicated the use of power, and were it not for the predisposed method it could have been used as any number of things. He had passed this town many times and seen his destination both near and far, thus readying an image in his mind. "Prepare yourselves." He said as the only warning before triggering the controlled spurt of energy that instantaneously allowed the allotted to move.

"Rescue the kit, get out alive and avoid starting fights."

What were their chances of things being that simple? The closer the legend moved to them the faster her heart started to beat. What if they had no chance, no hope of doing the one thing they desired? What if they all got killed in there?? Fighting back the rising panic Seek stared at the pixie as it started to glow. It was too late to go back and, at least for her, there was no other choice. I can't leave without him.

With a choking swallow the Aiveon steadied herself as best she could, and stood tall as the tinge of energy touched her sodden fur. I'm the big bad boss. I'm A big bad boss. A BA boss! The mantra did little calm her, and faster than she could blink or scream the world disappeared before her eyes. Within a heartbeat it returned, and as she blinked her vision clear the child immediately noticed the change in temperature. The place was much warmer, dryer, and without biting wind and rain. Gaining her bearings with a sweep of her head Seek knew they were inside a building, presumably the gym they sought. The room was small, dark, and gave no sound of other life. A door stood ajar to their side, and trotting up to it she did not relax her ears for a moment.

Reaching a trembling paw forward she hooked her muddy claws on to the door, but stopped before moving it even the slightest bit. All her confidence seemed to drain out through her paws and into the floor. Her trembling legs did not want to go through with any plans, but with a clenched jaw she forced herself to act and creaked the door toward her. Nudging her muzzle out just an inch she peaked into the hall and waited to any signs of life. It was quiet, the well hall empty as she primed all her senses. Backing away from the door the Aiveon quickly wiped her muddy paws clean [enough] on the floor and stared intensely at the others. Shenron's tail flame gave them just enough light to see one another, and the vague remains of the gutted out washroom.  

"O-okay," she said as hushed as possible, "It coast seems clear. Nesting ground would probably be toward the back.. whichever way that is." Legends, she did not want to go through with raiding a nesting ground. She didn't want to be here, to do this-- with her head held high the Aiveon walked back to the door with faux confidence. Peaking once again outside she slowly pulled the door open, and motioned for the others to come closer. "This way," she breathed, pointing to the longer end of the hall. "If something sees us.. don't let them make a sound."

Shenron snorted finally glad to be free of the accursed rain. He carefully raised his temperature drying himself and anyone near before shaking off. He watched Seek wander and pace around before going to the door to look as well. "It seems so... Understood" Shenron raised his head sniffing the air a bit and couldn't smell anything besides the damp humidity of the gym. Every Water type dream stank of sitting water, chlorine and rubber or plastic depending on what sort of obstacles or flotation devices they kept poolside. "Hm... They wouldn't keep eggs near the pool. Hatchlings that aren't aquatic could be harmed... We'll have to follow our nose and be careful..." Hopefully such a thing was possible. Shenron's claws shuddered in anticipation.
He was ready if not...

Felix stayed quiet as he followed Seek and Shenron. Like so with most he was following her orders and made sure they stayed out of sight. Of course though stealth is the best option but getting spotted means they would have to silence them before they raised the alarm. The Sylveon detested that option but it was either a them or us situation and right now they couldn't risk getting an entire army after them. So he spoke quietly to Seek. "Do you think at least one of them would give us the information that we'll need?" Felix asked as he kept his guard up and watching his surroundings.

OoC)) Short post, couldn't really think of anything to add.

Eleroo 151 || Seek 150


Creeping wearily into the hall the Aiveon breathed fervently through her nose. Smelling and listening for the first sign of danger there was nothing about their current position that felt safe or wise. "Hm... They wouldn't keep eggs near the pool. Hatchlings that aren't aquatic could be harmed... We'll have to follow our nose and be careful..." Though she wanted to press the dragon for specifics she decided to simply let her nose do the job. The thick smell of moisture, something reminiscent of a public pool, was everywhere, but as they reached a T at the end of their path even she had to admit it was stronger on one side than the other. We're coming Eleroo.

Pressing against one wall she checked ever so carefully for incoming Pokemon before moving on. With a small gesture to one side the Aiveon directed their path further into the den. It was so far so good, and in her focus she nearly jumped at the jump sound of Felix's voice. "Do you think at least one of them would give us the information that we'll need?" It was a good idea, but as she started to ponder it her mind instantly thought of Eleroo, if he was alone and cornered by strange Pokemon pressuring him for directions. What would he do? The poor boy would be scared out of his gourd, barely able to speak and struggling to point in a general direction as a means of communication. Would he break under pressure? She didn't doubt it, but to willingly give such important information.. he would protect his kin. With a shake she spoke on a sigh, "No one with morals would willingly put babies in danger."

Though she held conviction in her words she knew the Floatzel's actions spoke otherwise. But.. Eleroo isn't a baby anymore. In more than one way he had grown, most noticeably in his evolved body. Unlike the meek stumbling boy she had grown up with he was bigger, wiser, braver, and had the biggest heart..! It didn't make things any better or okay at all, but the Aiveon forced herself to recognize the difference between taking a preteen and snatching defenseless eggs.

Lost in her thoughts she had lost focus for just a moment, and her paws were moving on autopilot until a new sound made her come to a very sudden stop. Flexing her wings out she formed a small barriar to tell the others to halt, and pressing herself to the wall Seek perked an ear for danger. She now realized it was a voice, its lone conversation quiet and just beyond the wall as it rustled about. They had found trouble, and already her heart started to race. Creeping forward ever so lightly she peered through the crack above the hinge of the ajar door. The blue shape was fiddling with a bundle or sorts, muttering to herself as she collected the material and started walking toward the door. Crap!

The panic surged through her, tensing every muscle at once. There was no time to run, to get the upperpaw-- the Aiveon's jaw was tight as the Marill's round body breached the doorway. Her small arms were filled with stacked blankets, obscuring her view as she turned the same direction they had been heading. Perhaps, just maybe, they would follow without being noticed, but Seek's body reacted out of sheer panic. With a sudden leap she bolted, tackling the Marill and knocking her to the ground. The blankets toppling around them as Seek pressed the rubbery Pokemon into their plush fibers. Her cries were muffled by the cloth, her struggling nearly too much for the Aiveon to hold back. Pressing with all her might Seek hissed as quietly but fervently as she could, "D-do something-!"

Great Marsh|Morning (126)

Shenron shook his head following quietly behind everyone. Watching around him. His anxiety cooled but not away. It was hard to discern scent with the moisture in the air. He glared behind them briefly before whipping back around at Seek's hissed exclamation. Shenron's eyes widened and he extended a hand. Immediately the thought of the screaming mouse getting louder if Shenron held it down hit him. He was heavy. And clawed! His mind swam with panic and he looked around hoping to not hear the dreaded sound of reinforcements coming. His heartbeat raged in his ears and he swallowed.
"F-Felix? Do you..?"
