The Vaporeon kept inching forward with tentatively light steps. The thing seemed to be alive, unnaturally placed amongst the dank scene of the dinner area. "That, Is Visiyn. The cacturne I mentioned. As I said, he's somewhat weird." He, Cacture, Visiyn. Connecting the words to each other Artemis stood a bit taller, casually yet firm as unease still pricked through her scales. "Anyone hungry? Or are we all just tired?" Phantom found his paws aching with exhaustion and desperately wanting to lay on the floor but he forced himself into a comfortable sit. "If you have enough to share, food would be wonderful." His stomach feels hollow and dry, hopefully food would soothe its aching. "We should probably rest in here during the heat of the day as well."
Resuming her investigation the Vaporeon creeps toward the Cacturne. Moving close enough to see the worn fibers of his scarf her head tilts the slightest bit. The dry plant flesh looked almost delectable in her exhausted state.. A strange sound sends stiffness though her muscles. With a feeling of ice down her spine its eyes light up with a demonic glow. Grains of sand trickle down from its grinning mouth intensifying her anxiety and pestering a dry stop in the back of Artemis' throat. Her body is tense, rooted to the spot in fear from the unholy being. Its glowing yet dark gaze sweeps over the present Pokemon making her thick tail twitch."How thoughtful, you bought water."
Water? No no no there was no water here. They were in the middle of the damned desert for Lugia's sake! What the hell are you talking about? Her heart pummels hard against her ribcage and Artemis' breath comes short and rapid. What did it mean, water? Her cyan eyes are wide but not focusing on anything until a green arm flashes mere whiskers length in front of her. Squealing and scurrying backwards she flees from the threatening limb. Was it the water? The Vaporeons head is swimming with panic as she thrusts it the opposite direction. The cactus Pokemons face overtakes her vision with its wide green grin. "Gotcha~!"
With claws screeching on the floor the Bubble Jet Pokemon scuffles in place, trying to run but going no where. Was it going to drop or spit water on her? Soak her with the stuff? What the hell was it going to do?! Dont fuck with me! Yet the Cacturne is calm, an eerie pleasure to his dry-breathed voice. "My name is Visiyn and may I say that you are certainly a vision too." A vision? A vision of.. water? Visiyn extends his arm toward her. Panic-stricken the Vaporeon stares wide eyed at him, "Get the hell away from me!" In a vain attempt to defend herself from the possible liquid threat a Shadow Ball forms at the tip of her muzzle. With a sharp gasp Phantom leaps in front of the female, "Stop, both of you!" The Shadow Ball fizzes out harmlessly. With a hard stare at Artemis then Visiyn the Growlithe speaks firmly, "Greetings Visiyn, my name is Phantom." He pauses, "And this, is Artemis."
Artemis thrashed her tail hard behind herself. Rage and fear boiled inside her hot, dry body and she growled loudly, "You said weird not insane!" With a short bark Phantom silenced her, "That's no way to treat your host." Nerves pick lightly in his pelt. Why was she so spooked all of a sudden? Sure Visiyn had surprised her but this was a bit much. No, it was too much. "Just keep the water freak away from me!" She spat, her voice laced in pain and tail thrashing hard. Of all places a damned desert should of been safe.
