Eleroo 151 || Seek 154
Having made her decision Seek tried her best to hold her resolve. They needed
to do this, they all more or less agreed to it before they came in as their best chance. Her stomach was in knots though, and the decision didn't feel good or right in any way. Its for our safety.
This wasn't about morals or personal gripes; they needed to play all the cards they could to get out in one piece. Seek took in a tense breath, every muscle in her body as tight as her nerves. These Pokemon were relying
on her, and the young Pokemon had not realized everything that entailed. In truth, could she really believe they were looking to her when she fell back on them so often? "It sounds impossible but take a breath and ease your nerves. The situation is not ideal but you've made remarkable strides forward. Not many would suggest what you did even in better situations."
The dragon's kind words hit home, her confidence quaking. She was making noticeable
growth, her choice being accepted instead of loathed. With a heavy sigh the Aiveon tried her best to steady herself. "I'm just.. trying my best."
She breathed, taking his words to heart as best she could. Uxie had already checked the hall and was motioning to leave the room, and in a bid not to be left behind the small Pokemon hopped forward to join-- Thunk
. The flustered Aiveon had not checked where she was going, and in her misstep crashed headfirst into a shelf.
Her protective wear prevented even a bruise, but the small avalanche continued to pound her as she sat dazed for a few moments. The collection of sounds wasn't too
loud but it enough to make her pelt go cold. Thrusting her head toward their knocked out prey the Marill did not stir, remaining unconscious within the collection of blankets. For several seconds Seek stared and remained still as she listened for any Pokemon approaching them, but all was quiet and calm as it was before. Crisis averted. Releasing another tense sigh to rid herself of panic the Aiveon wheezed, "Sorry,"
as she gingerly stepped away from the clutter, but something caught her eye before she could leave the room.
The shimmering discs were a familiar sight, though it was one she had not seen in a very long time. "Hey,"
she said lightly, as though she couldn't believe what she was seeing, "Those are TMs!"
Running a paw lightly across them the Aiveon spread out the small collection of precious discs. What were they doing here?! Weren't these things valuable, at least to humans? With a tilt of her head Seek wondered if these wild beings didn't know how to use the items, or if they even knew what they were. Regardless of the answer it would be their gain, and she nosed them lightly while giving the others room to see. "I don't know what moves they are."
She said bluntly, the discs giving away nothing aside from the different alluring colors they came in. "But humans usually put good attacks on these!"
Her own moves had been invaluable, saving her hide on countless occasions, and she'd be stupid not to take a new one. However, with nothing but colors and etched numbers she couldn't read to tell them apart it was yet another gamble she would be playing at, but it was one she took without hesitation. Nosing them gently she grasped the first that caught her eye, and learned it before she could consider otherwise. Grabbing more she stuffed them into her cloudy mane alongside her berries. You never know,
she thought, and readied herself for their next objective.
