The Furret glanced back at Dave, sniffing the air and his tail twitching slightly. "Hm, tough question..." He mumbled, his eyes darting from side to side and across the city. Suddenly, something didn't feel right. There was something, or someone, watching them. Right before he was about to tell Dave, Dave swiftly fired a Charge Beam at an oncoming undead Skarmory, who's facial expressions clearly showed signs of confused anger as he screamed loudly and reared back, giving enough time for Dave to body slam him, though they attack didn't faze the undead steel-bird.
"Dave, let me help!" Alex yelled, though he knew he couldn't do much, he wanted to try. Yet, before the long body pokemon could even move an inch the avian swooped down and started heading towards Alex. Dave, who took quick action, yelled something Alex didn't understand, jumped and pushed Alex out of the way and putting himself in the spotlight of danger. The Skarmory slashed into his side, and flew back up. Alex quickly got up and ran to his friend, leaning down beside him. "Shit, shit, shit!" He screamed, turning his head around and looking for Viator or Taro. It was unlike him to act like this, he just had a special connection with Dave, something he had long forgotten until now.
Alex grabbed Dave's shoulder and attempted to shake him awake, his efforts failing however. He stands up and gets in a fighting stance; no way I'm leaving this Skarmory without a fight! Though his thoughts were quickly dismissed as Taro burst out of nowhere and Skull Bashed the Skarmory into the surf. She quickly came over and picked up a squirming Alex by the scruff. She placed him down under her and examined Dave.
"... Will he be alright?..."
