    Rustboro City/Late Morning (32)

    The only thing that Seth could do in his condition was to prop himself up on his stump as high as he could manage while the battle raged all around him. His good arm lay at a right angle on his left as his talons clawed at the stone pavement, itching to hoist the battered old body to its feet so it could aid its comrades. While he sat half-upright, Seth was able to detect where exactly the pain in his back was coming from - the lower base of his spine just above his pelvis. The fact that he was able to sit up a little was reassuring to know; it meant that no bones were broken. If I can do this, then I can surely stand.

    The effects of the Trick Room were starting to wear off and the distorted atmosphere began to revert back to normal. The Scyther was in a bad way, with half of its abdomen torn to pieces and being knocked forcefully to the ground by a Hidden Power attack from Wayfarer. They are doing so well... Seth knew that he did not have time to dwell on how proud he was of his friends; he had to get up somehow, and he had to do it quickly. He knew that as soon as the Trick Room disappeared then the Scyther would regain its usual speed, which was perhaps only rivaled with Wayfarer's. He could already see the hideous creature starting to regain some of its movement, and as a Fire-type, he knew he could end this.

    With a strained groan, Seth reached his arm upwards and grabbed hold of a metal beam that hung horizontally out of the partially-collapsed building he lay next to that had obviously fallen from its ceiling. Hoping that the beam was strong enough to support his weight, he hoisted himself off the ground, firmly gritting his teeth together as to not cry out in pain. It pained him even further to stand up straight, so merely resorted to staying in a slightly bent over position, using the beam as support. Looking up at the battle with a tear-stained face, he noticed a Pokemon, that he immediately recognised as a Manectric, charging straight in there and delivering a Thunderbolt attack to the Scyther's battered hide. How brave! The Bug's wings were badly burnt - there was no way it could fly now. Do it now!

    Seth raised both of his legs in turn - the right felt uncomfortable to lift but he was sure that he could bare to run in a quick burst if he ignored the pain for a moment. Glaring at their foe as it recovered from the Manectric's attack, he dared to let go of the beam - he winced and tottered a little bit, but stayed on his feet - and his wrist erupted into intense, orange flames. With a cry, Seth charged forward. Raising his fist and witnessing the look of surprise in the bug's eyes as he rapidly approached it, he delivered the Fire Punch attack directly into the creature's chest. Foul-smelling purple blood splattered from its open jaw as it was sent flying backwards through the crumbling wall of the Trainer's School. The building's fragile ceiling began to creak at the impact and it collapsed, burying the screaming Scyther and crushing it under several tonnes of brick and concrete.

    "...It is done." Seth took deep breaths as he dropped onto all three limbs, panting heavily. Looking wearily up at his comrades - no, his friends - he gave them all a relieved smile. "You all did so well ... thank you." Turning his head and spotting the brave Manectric that had helped make his attack possible, he realised how ridiculous and helpless he looked and, using the trunk of a decorative tree for support, pulled himself to his feet again. "Come here, young one." His eyes, still wet with pain and exertion, only began to glisten only at the admiration he had for the courage of this Electric-type and the way that she had helped them without even knowing who they were. "Please, tell me your name."

    Whoa, don't want to get on his bad side. Wait. He looks like he's about to collapse! Carter rushed over to the Blaziken's side and used her body as a support for him. "You okay sir?" I haven't called anyone sir in a long time, not since... Mentally shaking herself back to the present, Carter eased him up so he'd be able to stand somewhat comfortably leaning against the tree. She looked up to his eyes and spoke "I'm Samantha Carter sir. I saw the commotion and thought I could lend a han-err, paw. And you are...?"

    Rustboro City/Late Morning (33)

    Seth smiled wearily and nodded his appreciation at the Manectric as she helped to support him to his feet. "Thank you. You are very kind." The elderly Fire-type felt genuinely touched by the kindness of this stranger, his gentle eyes filling up as he regarded and admired her selflessness. Even in a world like this there are still people around who think of others besides themselves ... it almost feels like a miracle. He continued to smile down at the Electric-type as she introduced herself.

    "I'm Samantha Carter sir. I saw the commotion and thought I could lend a han-err, paw. And you are...?" Seth would've executed his usual bow if he wasn't in so much pain. Instead he simply nodded as he continued to cling onto the tree for support. His back felt as if it had received a Giga Impact to the lower spine and he housed a nasty headache. How on earth am I going to deal with this? He pushed those thoughts aside, however, when he remembered that he owed this Pokemon a debt for helping them and making his attack possible. And the way that she had called him 'sir' - so polite! "My name is Seth, and this is Wayfarer and Dominic. We are pleased to meet you, and eternally thankful for your help."

    Suppressing a groan he turned his head northwards to the Devon Corporation Building in the near distance, just a mere street away. "Would you like to come with us, miss? My dear friend Wayfarer has offered to share his supplies with us. It would be beneficial to have you with us. There is safety in numbers, yes?" Seth had no idea how he managed to remain so polite and dignified when he just wanted to collapse to the floor and stay there until the pain went away. However it decides to... But he was still a leader, as he had been for most of his life. A leader and a teacher; one who was looked up to by the younger ones, and this epidemic had not changed that. Besides, Wayfarer would be the first to detect any changes in his behaviour, if any, and the last thing he wanted to do was to worry or disappoint his old student.

    "Come on then," he groaned, using the tree to push himself a little more upright. "Let's make haste." He began to limp forward, still keeping himself in a slightly bent-over position as he walked. In the corner of his eye he spotted a small Pokemon that he recognised as a Quilava hiding nearby. "Oh?" He pivoted himself around on his good leg and regarded the little Fire-type with a look of curiosity. "Were you hiding from the battle?" He smiled gently as he reached out his arm and gestured for her to come towards them. "It is over now. Come out, little one. There's nothing to be afraid of!"

    Vera almost jumped when she realized the Blaziken had spotted her. "Were you hiding from the battle? It is over now. Come out, little one. There's nothing to be afraid of!" The Quilava was a little hesitant at first, since she didn't recognize who these characters were. However, the Blaziken seemed nice, since he was gesturing her to come over.

    Carefully, Vera padded forward over towards the group. When she got closer, she realized that the Blaziken only had one arm. There was definitely some sort of story behind that, and it made the Quilava curious. She moved a little closer to the group, which now had a Manectric among them. Vera was soon with the group and sat down in front of them. The silence in the area was deafening, so she timidly spoke up. "H-Hi... I'm Vera..."

    Rustboro City || Late Morning



    =-= Quicksilver | Rustboro City | (Post Count 16) =-=


    After his attack upon the scyther, Wayfarer watched as Dominic brutally struck out against their opponent. The scyther went down after a speedy bout of swings from a large staff of metal Dominic had ripped out of a nearby wall. Dominic was brutal in his attacks, and Wayfarer silently thanked the legend Victini that the psychic was an ally. He looked like he was actually really enjoying the brutal battle.


    After a few attacks were landed, Dominic teleported to the side of the concrete road. Around the battlefield, Wayfarer could feel the flow of space beginning to reorganize itself. The trick room was fading, and Wayfarer prepared himself to take on the scyther next. But before the anomaly’s effects faded completely away, a large blue canine rushed out into battle. It charged by the scyther and released a few electrical bolts into its wings. The scyther sluggishly picked itself up afterwards, and Wayfarer prepared his hidden power to knock the undead back onto the ground.


    A sudden movement from Seth’s direction stopped his attack. During the time of the battle, Seth had managed to lift himself up onto his legs. The wrist of his single hand was practically exploding with fire. The scyther could do nothing but hiss in horror as Seth let out a furious shout and rushed towards it. He swung an infernal fire punch straight into the insect’s gut, propelling it straight into a dilapidated building. It then died a horrible death as it was buried beneath a thick layer of structural debris.


    Seth collapsed after the attack, falling to his arm and legs. Though he was fatigued, he thanked them both. “....It is done. You all did so well.... thank you.” Wayfarer slithered up to his companion, and gave an easy laugh. “I knew a little mantis like that couldn’t take you down, Seth.” He was still very concerned for Seth, but after such a vicious battle all he could really do was laugh at the fortune they have had.


    As Seth thanked the manectric who had helped them win the battle, Dominic watched. She returned shortly after, but was moved with concern for Seth’s moment of weakness. Dominic slithered back in amazement as she gave some support to the blaziken, helping him to rise back to his feet. Her respect is great, he admirably thought. “I’m Samantha Carter sir. I saw the commotion and thought I could lend a han-err, paw. And you are...?”


    After Seth rose to his feet, he introduced her to the team. Wayfarer nodded to Samantha as his name was addressed. Afterwards he proposed that she come with them back to the Devon Corporation building. Wayfarer could not agree more. Seth then ushered them along towards the Devon Corporation building. As they went along, they also noticed a Quilava hiding among near the side of the road. She shyly came out and introduced herself as Vera. Seth welcomed her and asked for her to come with the rest of the team. Although Wayfarer was cautious about how many people were coming onto the team, he knew he had a large enough stash to last them all for a day or so.


    =-= Dominic | Rustboro City | (Post Count 9 ) =-=


    The trick room was beginning to dissipate, and as it faded away the scyther began to lift itself from the concrete. Dominic leapt over an abnormally fast swing as he backed up from his rising opponent. He prepared to block another succession of attacks from the Scyther. But with the brief respite came another threat, as Dominic detected a surge of movement coming from behind him. Its owner was far too large to be Wayfarer and far too small to be Seth. Without looking back to see who it was, he teleported far out of its way, landing next to the right side of the concrete road.


    He watches as a speeding canine turns aside from the scyther. As it does so it releases two dense electrical bolts into the insect’s wings, causing it to convulse violently upon the concrete. After dispensing its attacks the manectric charged around a building. Dominic did not sense a malign presence on the newcomer, so it must be supporting him and his associates.


    Dominic looked to Seth, expecting the bird to be dragging himself to his feet like the old geezer he was. His eyes widened in utter amazement as he saw the blaziken standing upon both legs, his wrist exploding with a furious flame. Seth focused upon the rising scyther, and let out a speeding charge towards it. The insect’s face was wreaked with terror as it saw Seth close in on it. Dominic watched in amazement as Seth crushed the scyther’s torso with a one-armed fire punch. The infernal fist sent its victim flying into a nearby building, where the impact loosened a concrete rock slide. The scyther hissed and screeched as the world crumbled down around it and it was buried beneath no less than a foot of building rubble. As the insect hissed its last, Seth collapsed to his knees. “....It is done;” Seth looked to him and Wayfarer, smiling in relief. “You all did so well....thank you.”


    Dominic nodded to Seth, and then walked over to the buried insect. Indeed, the scyther was beyond dead. Dominic could sense no more movement inside. Dominic was sighing in fatigue from the battle, so he spoke to Seth telepathically. ”Damn, Seth! That was an impressive punch, I’ll give ‘ya that.” With such a trusting and powerful opponent on hand, maybe he should stay here for a while. Sure, the old bird was weak and obviously suffered some serious pain from the scyther’s earlier attack, but he seemed to have a lot of fighting spirit in him.


    Dominic watched passively as Seth kindly spoke out to the manectric who had helped during the battle. After the manectric and blaziken were finished talking, Dominic offered a telepathic thanks to the canine. ”Hey, Samantha--Thanks for the help back there. You got some good aim with those thunderbolts of yours.” The team set out soon afterwards. They also found a Quilava along the way, but Dominic remained wary of the quiet alleys of the crumbled city. He certainly did not want to get into another fight with a big opponent, and he had no need to introduce himself to the others since Seth already gave out his name. That was enough for them to know about him.

    "What the...?!? Oh." Carter barked out in alarm before realizing it was the Psychic type speaking with her. "Never mind, no need to worry." She turned her head to the Beheeyem and thought to him You weren't bad yourself. I was wondering what kind of Psychic type moves you use, being a special type specialist myself. Coupling those with my electrical abilities... "Let's continue this conversation when we get inside, shall we?" Carter followed after Seth, watching him carefully in case he needed any support, and she found herself reminiscing about days long since past...

    ((Filler time!))

    @#$%! How the hell do you expect me to be able to steer myself in mid-air and attack at the same time?!? It's #$%^ing impossible! It was the first time I was training Twilight on Aerial maneuvers. The foul-mouthed plush doll was only good at physical attacks, Terra did away with those in favor of much more powerful special moves. Being the Specials expert on the team, I was delegated to teaching her. Twilight may have respected Terra but it seemed like she had a death wish for everyone else, and all the time she spent hanging around those salty sailors certainly made her vocabulary more colorful. Well, maybe if you aimed where you were jumping and used your ghosty powers to steer yourself. That is if you could actually use them properly. I don't know what it was, but man did saying the word 'ghosty' piss her off. I outta sell ya' dumb #$%^ to the next chinese restaurant Terra drags your fat @$$ to! Well, let's see you try to catch this fat #$%*. That is, if you actually can. Okay, I may have gotten her mad on purpose, But she deserved if most of the time.

    RAHH!!! Screaming bloody murder, Twilight lept at me with speeds that would have made a Rapidash blush. I was barely able to avoid it, but in the end it was one of her Acreus-aweful claws that caught me and sent us flying, almost ripped me a new one too. We crashed in a tangled heap, Twilight already smashing my head with a rock. I kill you! Wait! Why are we covered in honey? Twilight took a break from trying to murder me and we both looked around at our predicament. We had crashed straight through a Beedrill nest, how they got there I'm not sure, possibly we were near the Safari Zone and a few stray Beeedrill had gotten out and built a nest, but the minor details are still somewhat hazy. I need to review it with her if she's still alive. Our eyes dilated as we took in the massive swarm of Bug types, their eyes as red as Twilight's. Oh dear Arceus.

    We were able to run away, but not without a few stings as souvenirs. Carter looked up from her daydreaming to look at the entrance of the Devon building. It was dihabilitated like the other buildings but to a lesser degree, some of the windows were still intact and it was only slightly stank of death. Taking a cautious glance inside through the window, Carter ventured inside.

    Rustboro City||Late Morning ((4))

    Carter silently prowled around the ground floor, on the look out for any infected. She only came upon a single (Infected) Zigzagoon which she dealt with a simple Spark. Shoving the charred corpse into a corner, she walked to the door and barked out to the group outside "All clear! The ground floor is empty." She gestured the group inside while holding the door for them. Putting a nearby stop in the door to hold it open, she went back inside to grab a few packaged snacks from the reception desk she spotted earlier. I knew it was a good idea to come to this town, I just walked in the door and already I find some supplies. I just hope I can find what I'm looking for...

    Not long after Dominic spoke to her, Samantha barked in surprise. He supposed she did not expect to be spoke to telepathically. But she quickly noticed that he was the one speaking. The focus he saw in her eyes prompted him to listen to her thoughts for a reply. ”You weren’t bad yourself. I was wondering what kind of Psychic type moves you use, being a special type specialist myself. Coupling those with my electrical abilities...” She halted her conversation, and spoke out loud to him. “Let’s continue this conversation when we get inside, shall we?”


    Dominic let her walk on ahead of him. He nodded in surprise at her compliment; Samantha’s reply honestly impressed him. She knows how to be courteous, and she appears to know how to strategize. And it’s true that the scyther would have been far more troublesome without her help. As the others walked on ahead he grinned to himself, silencing a chuckle. Everyone in the group seemed to be nice--too nice, in his opinion, for a group of Pokémon surviving in the middle of an apocalypse. This group is just full of saints, he humorously thought to himself, isn’t it?


    =-= Quicksilver | Devon Corporation Building 1F | Post Count 17 =-=


    After so many delays and so much effort, the team has finally passed through the main gates of the Devon Corporation building and made it to the front entrance. Wayfarer looks up and down the sturdy building. The building, despite all of the events of the Epidemic, has managed to remain in fairly good condition. There are sections of masonry missing in certain parts that showed signs of Pokémon attack, but there was nothing serious to be seen. It was as if luck was actually playing on their side for a while. He could not help but bother and think when this great building would fall, just like the many other buildings of this ruined city. Samantha strode up first to the front entrance. After taking a cautious look through a window she opened up the door and went inside. Wayfarer slipped in after her, entering the dull light of the reception area. He noticed a mangy zigzagoon huddled nearby and backed up. The corpse hissed in surprise to the sudden intrusion of living Pokémon into its territory. However, it was quickly noticed by Samantha and zapped to a pungent crisp. As she went to let the others in, Wayfarer slithered aside.


    After everyone had entered the area, Wayfarer spoke clearly so all of them would pay attention. His voice was humble but he did his best to keep it just loud enough for them to hear.


    “Now, could none of you please =go up to the second floor just yet? I have set down some traps on that floor, and I have to go disable them. Besides, I’m sure none of you want to be impaled by triple-layered Spikes.” Wayfarer shudders at his own thoughts, imagining someone making a misstep and horribly injuring themselves. “Yeah, just a precaution I take against The Undead. Moving the traps out of the way should not take too long. I’ll call you all up when a pathway to the third floor is cleared.”


    Wayfarer leaves to the right, heading up the stairs to the second floor. Gripping onto the wooden rail of the flight of stairs, he slithers up it.

    Hmph, a very wise precaution. Those spikes must be very useful for fortifications, I wonder if their electrically conductive...I have friends to feed however. I'll talk it over with Quicksilver when he comes back. She walked back over to the group with several brightly colored packages in her mouth and placed one in front of each member. "I found these in one of the Human's desks," She ripped her package open and took a deep sniff of the chips, getting the spicy flavouring up her nose. "*cough* From the looks of them they're still good." bleh "Now, I know some of us may not be used to eating this sort of food...But hey, it's here and it's not gonna kill you. Carter ate her super spicy chips, although rather reluctantly at first, she soon gobbled them up without complaint. She ran back to the reception desk to grab one other thing she found. She grabbed a silver-wrapped plastic bottle and bit off the top before slurping it down eager to be rid of the spicy taste. Oh thank Arceus it's diet. The dog guzzled the drink down quickly, licking her chops thoroughly afterwards.

    "I'm going out to go do a quick patrol of the area before nightfall, Anyone is welcome to join me." She headed out the door right after her statement, careful to shut it behind her quietly. She tensed up, and cautiously began to prowl the area, alert for any sound or movement.

    Rustboro City|Late Morning(1)

    Nazo shivered in his protective skull though it was not to be seen. His tiny paws were sore from walking around through grass, water and now the cracked pavement of the big place. M-Momma..? He squeaked hearing a voice and went limp making the skull clatter to the ground. Nazo peeked through the eye hole seeing nothing before scurrying a few steps forward, sniffing and freezing. His nose was stuffed up and no scent could pass it. He assumed there were no scaries around but that meant neither was momma... Nazo took a few more waddling steps forward and gulped stepping his front paws through a gate and squeaking in surprise when he got stuck. He flailed his tiny paws desperately before a strong gust of wind caught the skull knocking him back into the helpless Squirtle position. Nazo blinked his wide eyes before struggling around and managed to land back on his paws.

    Nazo passed through the big place finding a way around the gate. He still hadn't seen anyone. Not even the scaries for awhile... Nazo wondered exactly where in the big place he wa-... He grunted feeling some fluffy, squishy resistance against the skull. Nazo tipped the skull back and yipped at the creature before him before stepping back. It was a Pokemon but the red eyes! S...Sc...SCARY! He turned and ran away yipping like a hurt puppy trying to put distance between him and the scary. Nazo did not see the big blue and Yellow Pokemon in his path and squeaked as he tripped over its front paws and rolled head over paw into the road. He went limp under the skull hoping they would not find him... Nazo did not want to get eated. He would not taste very good!

    Rustboro City: Devon Corporation Building 1F/Late Morning (34)

    Although Seth still had a rather prominent limp in his right leg, he felt that the pain in his back was slowly starting to dissipate. He felt a little awkward as he followed Wayfarer into the Devon Corporation Building; after all, he was usually the one who led the way. It had been so for most of his life. Telling his pride to calm itself for a moment, Seth listened as his old friend told them that he had some traps to disable first and that he'd call them when the coast was clear. "Your ideas never cease to amaze me," the elderly Fire-type chuckled, placing his arm on the dusty reception counter for some support while he waited.

    Carter trotted off and returned with several small bags, similar to the ones full of miniature berries that they'd found in the Poke Mart, and said that they contained 'chips'. "I can't say that I am familiar with these." Seth, used to a lifelong diet of berries and fruit, carefully bent down and picked up the small package. Clamping his beak down on it, he pulled on the stretchy material in a vain attempt to open it, but couldn't. Embarrassed, he went to hand the package to Carter so she could open it for him, but the Manectric was half-way out of the door by this time, saying that she was going on a patrol. "Oh do be careful." Seth's voice was tainted with concern for the Electric-type as she disappeared, guilty that he wasn't in any state to lend her a hand, so to speak.

    Sighing and placing the slightly-chewed bag of chips on the counter, Seth offered Dominic a kind smile. "I was impressed by your skill during that battle, Dominic. Wherever did you learn such a remarkable battle style?" While he genuinely did want to make conversation and keep the Psychic-type feeling comfortable, he couldn't help but be intrigued by his odd appearance and strange demeanor.

    Rustboro City || Late Morning

    =-= Quicksilver | Devon Corporation Building 2F | Post Count 18 =-=

    Upon reaching the second floor, Wayfarer lands lightly onto the floor. His eyes can clearly see in the dim light exuded by the lightly boarded windows at the far right of the room. The spikes are hard to spot in the mild darkness, but he goes to them with a clear memory. They were lined haphazardly, with the majority of them being concentrated in the hallway that led past the desks. He begins to clear them all to the side with sweeping tail motions. Soon, a clear and visible path down the hallway was made and piles of Spikes were resting like a earthen brown pathway to the distant office floor staircase.

    Along the way he finds an impaled undead Delcatty, as well as an undead Magby whose entire body has been horribly mangled by layer upon layer of five-pointed spikes. He cautiously neared the rotting cat, which upon sighting him began to hiss and snap. It attempted to crawl closer upon its bony stubs, but all it succeeded in doing was fumbling over and landing in more spikes which proceeded to tear its flesh apart even further. With a simple concentrated blast of his hidden power he blasted the rotting cat’s upper body apart, leaving the bloody chunks to forcefully fly backwards while leaving its lower corpse to slump forwards onto the spikes. Now that the hallway was done, he could take care of the desk-filled section of the room.

    This part of the spike clearing was easy enough. He cleared the traps by simply sweeping them under the few intact desks that remained. It only took him a minute or so to finish. After that, he slithered up the stairs to the third floor. At the top, he brushed away the final layer of spikes sitting in the doorframe leading to the building’s main office. Wayfarer then slithered back down to the uncluttered hallway and nodded as he browsed over the cleaning. He shall reset the traps at night, but he will have to plan out an escape route in case of an Undead swarm. And he still wanted to speak with Seth, but there should be plenty of time as the team goes about their daily duties. With his own duty finished Wayfarer slides back up the wooden rail of the floor’s downward stairs and slides back down into the lobby.

    =-= Dominic | Devon Corporation Building 1F | Post Count 11 =-=

    As Wayfarer slithered upstairs, Dominic decided to take in the quiet of the building. He looked about the lobby area more cautiously as its inner world was defined to him. Nothing seemed abnormal, aside from the roasted undead zigzagoon lying dead in one of the room’s far corners. Samantha had already located food, having apparently pilfered it from the reception desk.

    She placed one of the bags down in front of him, of which he accepted. The beheeyem parted the chip bag’s sealed opening with a light psychic pull. He looked inside, to see that the chips were barely even stale! Wow, these chips have been around for years and yet they aren’t expired? He took one out and tried it. They were spicy, but he did not mind it at all; he’s been around Humans for long enough to enjoy their food anyways. Human food was so hard to come by these days, and he could be eating one of the last bags of fresh chips in existence.

    Seth attempted to bring up conversation after Samantha left, to which Dominic listened to while half of his attention was focused upon the delicious chips he was still eating. The spiciness was having no effect upon him--he was actually enjoying the cheesy, spicy flavor of his particular bag of chips. “I was impressed by your skill during that battle, Dominic. Wherever did you learn such a remarkable battle style?”

    Even with his attention skewed, Dominic could hear that undesired, kind edge in the bird’s voice. It bothered him a little, but he tolerated it nonetheless. Dominic gave a mild smile back to Seth. Before he gave his reply, he saw that Seth was having trouble opening his own chip bag. With a hidden pity for the one-armed bird he lifted the bag from the counter telekinetically. Without a word spoken he unsealed the bag. He levitated in front of Seth and simply said “Here.” Dominic quickly finished up his own bag of chips, crumpled his bag up, and tossed it behind himself. “Thank you for your compliment. And as for your question: I’m an ex-trainer’s Pokémon. The team needed a good psychic, and my unorthodox fighting style fit my trainer’s bill. And you think my skills are good? You’d be surprised to see what sort of destruction an Escavalier or Octillery can do under a good Trick Room.”

    After hearing Seth’s reply, Dominic heard Samantha say that she was going to scout around the building before nightfall. Though it was still pretty early in the day, he supposed an early check could prevent them from being cornered in the situation that an Undead group enters the building.

    Dominic senses the subtle presence of someone else behind him, and without turning around knows that Wayfarer has returned from the upstairs areas. The accelgor descends from the staircase’s rail and comes over to him and Seth. Wayfarer quietly and quickly reports his work to them all. “The upper floor have now been cleared of spikes. Oh,” Wayfarer interrupted himself, “where is Samantha?”

    “Outside, doing some scouting.” Dominic said to Wayfarer. He began walking towards the room’s front entrance. “I’m gonna go help her.”

    Dominic had caught Samantha just in time, before she prepared her patrol. He also saw a small creature hiding under a skull ducking in fear between an undead skitty and the living manectric. With a sigh he launched a Psychic towards the small cat, grasping it telekinetically by its neck. It hissed and gurgled as it attempted to call for help, but he dispatched it by forcefully banging its neck against the Devon Corporation building’s surrounding metal fence.

    Vera decided to lay down and rest her legs for a little bit. Everyone else was inside and she didn't feel like joining them at the moment. She sighed as she began to think about Kibo, wondering why she chose to leave him. He loved her, and she loved him. The Quilava began to wonder how he was doing. Was he still alive, keeping her doll safe? She remembered why she left the doll with him.

    'And to give me a reason to come back... I want you to hold on to this.'

    That was how much she loved him. She was willing to give up something that held such sentimental value to her to the one she loved. She was about to close her sad ruby eyes until she felt something bump into her side. It was a skull. The sight of it made Vera jump. But what surprised her was that it ran away. She chased after it until it tripped and stopped. The Quilava cautiously approached the skull and used her muzzle to nudge it and lift it a little. Underneath it was a small and very young Eevee.

    He was just too cute, and it made Vera's heart melt. She got a little closer to him and sniffed him, just to make sure he wasn't undead. "Hello there," She said with a soft smile. She leaned closer to nuzzle him gently to show that she meaned no harm. "You can come out from there, if you like..."

    Carter jumped when she felt the sudden impact on her paws. Quickly recovering from the shock, she got into her battle stance, her fur bristling audibly with electricity. "What the...?!?" Just a Skull? No... Carter bent over and took a sniff. She could smell the fear dripping from the cowering pokemon, still cautious she nudged the Skull upwards with her paw. It revealed a small Eevee who squeaked once before forcing the skull back down. Why on earth is he under a skull? No matter, I just hope I didn't spook him. A motherly smile graced her face, and she laid on the ground in front of the skull and called out softly "Hey there little guy. I'm Carter, what's your name?"

    It's been such a long time since I saw any children...All of them have either been eaten by the infected or left alone to die like this little one. Some parents probably faced the undead but succumed to the infection themselves. Worse yet are those that abandon their children to try to escape. I have no pity for the fools who committed that act. The Children are our future, and our only hope of survival is with them. They are inexperienced to this apocalpse, and I promise that I'll defend them with all I have. She looked up to see a an oncoming Infected Doduo. It had snuck up on her without her even noticing! Only it's gurgling cries aleted her to it's approach. Damn, I need to stop with all the Monologues. Jumping up and firing a Thunderbolt at the infected. The electricity proved to much for the undead bird, and it's remaining head exploded in a spectacular fashion, covering the surrounding area with gore. "Well that was interesting." She said nonplussed as she wiped the rotted gray matter off her pelt and then cleaned the Eevee's skull.

    Rustboro City|Late Morning (2)

    Nazo squeaked hearing the scary right outside. She was gonna eat him! But the scary spoke... From all his wanderings the scaries never spoke. Nazo carefully tipped the skull up a little and blinked. The Pokemon he thought was scary was not so scary even though it was a girl... Nazo slipped out of the strap holding him with the safety bungee holding it close to him. He sniffed the scary before giving it a soft lick on the snout. She did not taste scary... Nazo sat back looking the red eyed Pokemon over and declaring she was not a scary and wasn't gonna eat him. The sudden arrival of the two headed scary made him yip in surprise and hide again. The blue and yellow Pokemon made it go away though and Nazo felt obliged to thank it. However he had indeed forgotten his limited knowing of words. He yipped happily to both of them which to him sounded like Yus! Yus! No more scary! but to them it might look like he was having a squeaky seizure...

    Nazo wondered why they had been in the big place. Was there stuff for his belly in there? Momma always brought him really soft Pecha berries and gave him milk from her belly. Maybe they had momma in there! Nazo wagged his fluffy tail and looked at them both with excitement in his multicolored eyes. Momma? He raised his paw towards the big place they came out of. If they had momma in there then Nazo would feel safe again. Momma kept all the scaries away and licked his head and sang him sweet songs at night. The reminder of what his mother did to keep him safe made him really want her back. It also excited him! Nazo yipped excitedly and danced a bit on his paws before remembering there were girls looking at him. He blushed a bit before ducking back under his skull into the strap. No need to embarass himself in front of the girls just yet...

    Rustboro City (Devon Corporation Building: 1F) / Late Morning (35)

    "Th-Thank you!" Seth's mouth trembled into a smile, gasping out an embarrassed chuckle as he took the opened bag from Dominic's psychic grasp. Dipping his beak inside and scooping out a chip, he listened as the Beeheyem explained that he had once been a Trainer's Pokemon. "I see. That explains it then," Seth said as he swallowed his chip and plucked out another. "I had a Trainer too, but that was long ago now. Certain..." he gave his half-arm a brief but solemn look, "...circumstances forced me to leave. But I have not stopped battling for one day since then. It is not only wisdom and courage that get you through a life like this one, hm?"

    He ate a few more chips and then spotted Wayfarer slithering down the banister, declaring that he had disabled all of his traps and then asking where Samantha was. "Outside, doing some scouting," Dominic replied, making his way towards the door. "I’m gonna go help her."

    "Vera didn't even come inside in the first place," Seth mused quietly, crumpling his empty bag of chips and limping towards the door. "I hope that everything is all right."

    Rustboro City || Late Morning

    =-= Quicksilver | Devon Corporation Building 1F | Post Count 19

    Wayfarer went to the front door, curious as to what was going on outside. As he went there, he heard Seth muse his own worries. “Vera didn’t even come inside in the first place, I hope that everything is all right.”

    Wayfarer could hear a little bit of fighting outside and he, just like Seth, became concerned. But when he went to the front door, he stopped in surprise. “A-apparently the girls found an Eevee kit, Seth.” This was a very unexpected encounter, and Wayfarer looked to the scene with his strange, bug eyes. How on earth could a child have survived in this time? The idea boggled his mind. “What a lucky kid, surviving in this brutal world by himself.” Wayfarer said silently to Seth as he came to view the scene.

    =-= Dominic | Devon Corporation Building, Front Side | Post Count 12

    Dominic watched as the girls looked with curiosity down to the shifting skull. After they inspected it a little--and killed off an oncoming undead doduo--it was revealed that the creature underneath was a young Eevee. Though the find made Dominic raise his brows in slight surprise, Dominic did not care too much. He continued to watch the scene with a quiet, eyeless stare before stepping down from the front steps and looking about the area. Sure, children were important since they embodied the future of life and all that stuff. But right now, he believed there were more pressing matters than looking after a kit. His psychic senses defined the realm around him, and with them he could see no other Undead coming to attack. Things were silent for the time being. With that in mind, Dominic leaned against the left side of the building as he waited for Samantha to finish dealing with the current situation. He was not too particular to introducing himself to the kid, and so he left that task to the others.

    They needed to know as little as possible about him, so that he can search this place for his old teammates and leave. But as he stood there, he thought about what Seth said. “It is not only wisdom and courage that get you through a life like this one, hm?” The bird could not be further from the truth, he grinned in his thoughts, as he browsed his psychic gaze over the ruined city of Rustboro. He would have to get back to Seth on that; as much as he was keeping himself detached from other Pokémon, it was an interesting conversation.

    “What a lucky kid, surviving in this brutal world by himself.” Dominic overheard Wayfarer say at the door. Although the comment was probably intended for Seth he gave his own reply to it. “I guess I’ll give him some kudos for that.” The kit squeaked in joy after it had been saved, and seemed to already be accepting the females of the group. At least it was good to know that the child was found before those Undead got to him.

    Vera blinked as the Eevee sniffed her to make sure she wasn't dangerous. She smiled when he gave her a soft lick on the snout. Carter also took notice of the little Eevee before killing an undead Doduo. The newcomer came out of his skull and looked around. He was asking for his momma, which made the Quilava tilt her head in confusion.

    "I didn't see your momma in there, dear..." Vera giggled a little bit as the Eevee was doing a little dance on his paws before stopping. He went back into his skull, embarrassed that he would do that in front of girls, apparently. She lifted up the skull a little bit to get a better look at the Eevee. "What's your name, dear? I'm Vera, and I'll be sure to keep you safe until we find your momma."
