Deep within Meteor Falls | Current Time Unknown
Alduin  | Gale 
The youth had been alone for so long, so used to being on his own, that he almost did not pay attention to when he first entered the caves. He had been running, that he was pretty sure of. Amidst trying to escape those he wished him harm, the ground underfoot had turned from grass to dirt to stone. He didn't slow down, though, and there he ended up. Moisture built around the bottom of his eyes. The Charmander walked slowly then, his long tail bent around his body so that his tiny claws gripped it in front of him, the flame illuminating his surroundings enough to tell him that it was in fact a tunnel, but every time he saw darkness growing to one side, signally another tunnel breaking off, he tried desperately not to cry.
The loudest sound emitting from the CHarmander was the occasional sniffle, a runny nose a result of his silent crying. A-am I going to d-die here? All alone and in the dark and cold? Alduin wondered to himself, but of course he had no answer to that. The only trainer who had cared for him had given him that name, a powerful name and a sign of good things to come, she had told him. Alduin had never felt less deserving of his name than he had in that time, though. Pathetic, if something snuck up on him in the dark, he was more than likely to be dead before realising it was there.
His fears were realised when suddenly the close walls all around him vanished, giving way to a much larger room. Extending one arm in an attempt in using his tail like a torch, Alduin was not able to see further than a few feet. This cavern must be huge! he realised with a whimper. And with his flame tail, anything was going to see him before he saw anything else. Undead or living.
Powerful strides and a pair of alert ears ad eyes meant nothing to the darkness, Gale was all too soon realising. Cursing himself for the tenth time for entering the unknown cave, he would have given a week's worth of food just to know the way out. Pausing in his steps, the Arcanine pulled back his lips, opening his jaws wide to release a burst of fire into the air. His flamethrower technique had proved to be the only source of light, but he could not use it forever. Gale had to use it only once in a long while. Time was sucked up similar to the way light was within the dark caves, but even the large canine's discipline was proving to falter. He used the flames too often, his throat was becoming sore. Despite the uneasiness within him, the fire in his belly just wasn't going to save him this time.
Stifling a cough, he knew that if he could see the ground in front of his nose he would see blood. Come on Gale. Get yourself together. There's got to be a way out of here. Growling in determination at himself, the Arcanine straightened himself back up and continued his strong pace. He had yet to encounter any powerful undead in the caves himself, but he had no doubt they were lurking. The things could even be following him, waiting for him to run out of fire before attacking. Growing threatening again out loud, Gale thought, Let them fucking try. I won't go down without a fight you bastards.
But exhaustion was a real factor, and Gale could feel his massive paws drag. His legs were exhausted, he could have been walking for three days straight and have no idea. Without the sun to gauge time the fire type felt as if he were simply in another dimension. No fire type should ever feel the pain of going without the sun for o long. Stifling a sigh, he suddenly felt twice as tired as before. How long could he go on before starvation kicked in? Frankly the sun was the last of his problems.
But the air around him suddenly felt larger, the walls having more space between them ad him. Gale paused. That could mean any number of things, but at least luckily for him it seemed he had just simply walked into a large cavern. His instinct wanted him to light up the cave with a powerful flamethrower, but what if there was something else in there he didn't want to disturb? Unhappy with his perdiciment, the Arcanine opted for merely squinting through the darkness instead.
[ ooc: Alduin and Gale have entered the same cave, feel free to have anyone run into either of them first. The cave is shaped like a U, so really more like a massive but short tunnel, thus why they couldn't see eachother yet. ]
