Clover 96 || Kolven 76


The conversation was quick to pick up, the chatter truly stirring life in the old house as everyone joined in. Kolven stayed out of it for the most part. Too rich for his blood, too much rattling on about the obvious or already mentioned. Instead he continued to eat his Pokeblocks, the odd flavor a sort of comfort in this frigid environment. Would the berries they were discussing be able to survive up here? He knew the greenhouses were meant for just that, and that most berries these days were hardy, but it just seemed so unlikely in such a harsh environment.  

He offered Clover another Pokeblock, but the molly had lost all interest and ignored it completely. She sat with a deep hunch, her shoulders protruding practically above her head as she stared blankly at the chittering Pokemon. Was something on her mind, anything at all? Her tail swept slowly across the floor, back and forth, back and forth. Was she picking up on the conversation, ready to add input? Kolven could not tell, even as Drake pointed and called her out she did not add in. He kept his own mouth shut as well, not wanting to set the Braxian off yet again as he mentioned more self-pity.

Kolven pushed the Pokeblock dispenser away. He appreciated the free food and the needed calories, but he didn't have much of an appetite. The thought of walking obscene amounts after the past few days travel was already making his paws ache. "We shouldn't go too far." He warned after hearing Drake mention more than one town. "We shouldn't risk getting lost or exhausting ourselves when this town already sounds like a rough trip." He wasn't worried about them getting caught in the dark; it was early, and it'd be foolish to be out that long, but if they found trouble turning back would be the wisest option. "Damaged buildings just make it easier for opportunists to move in, and I doubt they'd like to see a group of trespassers in their territory." Wild Pokemon generally avoided human towns, but after all these years they were simply another territory options, and accessible dwellings made for easy dens.

Jack heard all the opinions and came to a decision. They will start at the closest area and slowly move outwards. As for other survivors if there is any, they would have to not take theirs. But if they was attacked then they would need to defend themselves. For better or worse, there will likely be bloodshed if some decide to go to killing just to survive.  ”Damaged buildings just make it easier for opportunists to move in, and I doubt they'd like to see a group of trespassers in their territory.” Chances of that is there but what if the undead has gotten to them? It would just be another town and city of the dead. If any are infected and dying, who knows what they would do to them. Regardless, it sent shivers down Jack’s spine by the mere thought of it. Still, they need to get supplies and just relying on farmlands isn’t going to do much for them in the long run. They need to eventually go into Dendemille and eventually Lumiose City.

Finn doesn’t know much around this area but he does know that Lumiose has a lot of things in the restaurants that can be used for Rae to cook classy dishes. “What about Rae? We can’t just let her starve can we?” The Braixen then forgot that Rae isn’t into meat that much. Salads are the easiest thing to make. There is also desserts as well which Rae could make if they get ahold of the items. He looked over to Jack and Jack just gave him a look that showed Finn that Finn didn’t listen that well. “I forgot.”

The Pikachu then told everyone his decision. ”After all that was said, I decided that we start small and work our way out. I’d like to avoid damaged buildings just for safety reasons. Though I do see the chances of Dendemille and Lumiose might be areas of the dead. We still need to consider the potential of finding lone survivors out there willing to help us. So lets go get the seeds and bring them out. The closest farmland would likely be somewhere that Drake knows of.” Jack said as he turns to Drake to lead them to the farms. This would give the Charmeleon to show them around a bit more.

Ark sat there listening as the others spoke up, his tail flicking this way and that before he ate his brick. "Then we make sure we eat properly, do not waste our food here." Arkturus would speak up as he stands and glances at Jack. ”After all that was said, I decided that we start small and work our way out. I’d like to avoid damaged buildings just for safety reasons. Though I do see the chances of Dendemille and Lumiose might be areas of the dead. We still need to consider the potential of finding lone survivors out there willing to help us. So lets go get the seeds and bring them out. The closest farmland would likely be somewhere that Drake knows of.”

"Alright, lets go get them. Everyone stretch yourselves out and make sure you're feeling rested. Then we shall go. Okay?" Arkturus stretched out his limbs, front legs, back and then flexed his back legs and flexing his rather sharp claws. "Lets go kids!" He looked to Drake and Jack, ready to follow.

“Damaged buildings just make it easier for opportunists to move in, and I doubt they'd like to see a group of trespassers in their territory.” Kolven stated and with good reason. Ever since the absence of humans, Pokemon that had endured the undead’s reign of terror had likely set up a nest to protect themselves. Not only that, they would likely defend it fiercely from anyone including other living pokemon. Some even might have went into insanity from fear of the undead finding them. There is even a risk that some would kill in order to make a sacrifice to the undead to spare them from their ravenous hunger. It was all the reason to prepare for that kind of scenario if it ever happened to play out. If fighting other living in order to survive was necessary then they would have no choice but to do that. What was said next caught Drake by surprise. It was none other than Jack that said it. Wait what? Drake had no idea what Jack was having him become a leader for their trip. How was he supposed to keep other safe if a fight ensued? Guess he wasn’t given much of a choice but if its to be temporary then it wouldn’t hurt. Though Ark did make a bit of humor out of what he said. ”Alright, lets go get them. Everyone stretch yourselves out and make sure you're feeling rested. Then we shall go. Okay?” What got him was what the Luxray said next. ”Lets go kids!” Funny thing was, Drake even knew Jack was a full grown adult.

Maka stretched out but not to much so he wouldn’t strain his leg to much. Once he finished stretching, he was ready to go back out there, but before they went, he made a prayer to the great pack. ”Oh Great Pack, protect us in our journey. May the pack watch over all of us from the evil spirits that haunt the lands.” It was short but enough to make him feel more better to have the spirits of his once former pack and ancestors watching him and his allies. ”I’ll be able to keep up so no need to carry me.” Maka sprang around just to make sure he wasn’t feeling any soreness and none was present. It made him feel at least in his mind a bit more like a young teenager again. Now that he finished the bouncing around he was ready to go outside again. 

Drake had finished stretching. It was time to head on out. How much can they get and bring back? It was not a thought but just an estimate that they could bring back at least one large back and several pouches of berry seeds. ”Ark, you do know that Jack’s an adult right? Well anyways, lets get those seeds and any berries that aren’t rotten. I don’t feel like having stomach pains like I did the last time I had a rotten berry.” Remembering that, it was a bright sunny day and it was warm outside during that time. The berry that Drake had was a oran berry but it was expired and the inside tasted like a stunky’s stinky spray. He hated that taste so much that he wouldn’t eat oran berries but also the berry had caused him to feel stomach pains for a few hours. Never again will he do that stuff ever again. ”It’s cold outside so might want to be ready for snow in case it does. Opening the door to the outdoors, the air was still cold and it greeted him with a light breeze. ”Lets go get them.” Drake was ready for anything.

"Then we make sure we eat properly, do not waste our food here." Ark spoke firmly, leaving no room to argue as he continued to eat his rations. Kolven cringed internally, was that a personal attack? Pawing the pokeblock back toward himself he begrudgingly continued to crunch through them, though his appetite said otherwise and his willingness was limited. Looking at Clover he hoped that his actions were spur her to eat again, but the molly had started to wash her face in vain. The sound of brushing her skullen face was an uncomfortable one, but it was something Kolven was used to and could tune out as the conversation continued.

Jack took their points to heart and made a quick plan of action for them to follow. It was mostly reiterating prior points, but having it said in his authority made things feel more official. His points were seemingly ignored once again as both towns were mentioned, but the Meowth didn't feel like arguing; the road would tell them how far they could go.
"Alright, lets go get them. Everyone stretch yourselves out and make sure you're feeling rested. Then we shall go. Okay?" With a light meow and a nod Kolven stood and gave himself a good stretch. Feeling his spine twist and pop out any stiffness he was greatful for what was left of his youth, and with a gentle brush of his tail encouraged Clover to do the same. She grumbled, whiskers twitching indigently before she too followed suit with a big stretch.

"Lets go kids!" Kids. He chuffed, ease melting into his face as he laughed to himself, He's one of the youngest ones here. At least physically, he followed up his own thought as he cast a sideways glance toward Rae and Finn. Nudging Clover forward the pair started making their way toward the front of the mansion. Kolven's paws were already aching at the prospect of a long trek, but he did not complain or show any misgivings. ”It’s cold outside so might want to be ready for snow in case it does." Drake gave a last warning as he opened the doors.
Cold air was quick to make an entry, rushing in and making both cat's whiskers twitich, but Kolven's body was already acclimated from his prior jaunt outside and did not shy away from the cold. Stepping out onto the porch and waiting until Clover was at his side Kolven took in a deep breath of the crisp, chilly air. "So Drake, when was the last time you made a trip into town?" He asked curiously  as he padded onto the cold earth. The Charmeleon lived here but the specifics of his situation seemed very up in the air. He had vaguely described the state of the town but living at the top of the slope could mean he was simply observing from a safe distance.

"Lets go kids!" Kid? Oh haha, this made Jack want to jokingly say the two words to Ark on that but he wasn't sure if Ark would take it like that. Drake already went on ahead and opened the door up. The cold mountainous air was coming inside after Drake opened the door. From what Jack can tell, it did have a smell of moisture in it as well. Looks like Drake maybe right, it could snow any moment. This was actually okay with Jack. He lived on Mt. Silver long enough to know that feeling anywhere and he isn't going to ever forget it anytime soon."So Drake, when was the last time you made a trip into town?" Acutallly, Jack wanted to know too. It had to be a while since the undead are likely still in those towns. Now that he thought about it, they would need a lot more to even remotely attempt to enter those towns. Regardless, it was time to get the gate back open again and like so he needed Ark to help him jumpstart the motor.

Finn looked around outside. For a first this was unusual of him to take in the scenery like he was. Yesterday it was warmer but today, its a lot cooler. Its like winter just decided it wanted to show up early. "Is it me or did nature decided it wanted to be winter mates?" Yeah, it felt like it wanted to be winter all of a sudden. Then again, why waste time thinking about it when he knew that the weather is always changing and nothing that they can say or do will change that. Even then, moves like sunny day or any weather changing move will only temporarily change it but it won't stop it. But then again, snow was something he would at least enjoy. Since he was outside though, might as well practice some of his moves while traveling. Who knows when a well placed psychic or a flamethrower would work.

Jack had been amped enough to send a current though one side. He just needed Ark to power the other side of the motor to have Rae pull the gate enough where they can get through. "Ark, looks like we need to get this thing powered up again. Can you give me a paw on this?" Releasing an electric current to power up the left side of the motor, he awaited Ark to power up the right side of the motor. It felt a bit more colder than yesterday and was definitely feeling like it could do something. Maybe if it put down enough snow and deep enough to jump in it to make a snow glaceon or a snow charizard which is the most challenging thing for him so far. But, he would even try to make a snow lugia. That though needed a lot of snow. "So, if we get enough snow, you guys wanting to play in it? It would be something to do for fun and I haven't done that since leaving Mt. Silver that day. Jack asked and he for one was willing to have some fun.

There was just... something about big, old houses.

Sometimes, if she just closed her eyes and blocked out the world around her, she could believe it was her big, old house. With that one creaky stair leading up to the first floor that shrieked hideously when stepped on, and the rich red wallpaper on the hallway leading upstairs, and the wrap-around porch. The sound of dogs barking and, if they were lucky, children playing...

Something's wrong.

Florges's eyes snapped open, skin crawling with a... presence. She wasn't sure how else to describe it but that; the persistent feeling that someone was nearby.

Something boiled beneath her skin. Nearby. In her sanctuary.

She drew upon the vines crawling and clinging to the side of the mansion that allowed her to hang in a hammock from a window, using them to lift her down, vine over vine, closer and closer to the presence. For a wild moment she considered--for the first time--that maybe she was making such a feeling up.

But no. Because then there were voices.

And her figurative hackles rose as she directed her vines to bring her to the loudest two she heard.

They were the loudest because they were the closest, and that was a folly that, this time, carried the death penalty.

Her vines brought her to the ground behind the Pikachu and the Luxray, her eyes catching the Pikachu first. The bright yellow was an assault on her eyes and memory, her vision turning red quite literally as soon as she registered it was a Pikachu.

Him.

There was no more thought as her vision flashed red, her vines reaching to grab the mouse in an iron grip just as unconsciously as a breath might be taken. And just as unconsciously, she was going to crush him, but-

The lightning bolt that hit her in the face broke the trance.

So sudden was it that she actually blinked, the real world returning in a sudden burst of color. It almost hurt her eyes, even.

But the return to reality was soon swept away by two realizations.

First, someone had hit her.

And two, that someone was familiar.

She dropped the Pikachu, the red returning as she grabbed the Luxray instead, accompanied by a sinking, shrieking feeling in her stomach and chest that was both intensely familiar and strangely out of reach in terms of recollection.

In an instant, the fate intended for the mouse was forgotten and given instead to this new target.

The lion was dead much quicker than she might have otherwise meant, his neck snapped with a sickening sound akin to a twig. Once again she was struck dumb, this time as she stared at a body hanging from her vines.

She... didn't usually end it so quickly. Why did I...?

No, no time to think. Just as quickly as she'd come, she left, dropping the body to the ground with a thud, her vines grabbing her and hauling her away enough to, if she had been alive, bruise her.

Florges tried, but no conscious thought other than away would come, as if words remained just beyond a veil that she couldn't reach through. She was shivering.

What happened back there?

(I do want to specify, just in case it isn't clear, that nobody here is actually familiar to her. She's experiencing delusions about bad people she knew in the past, imagining them in every person who looks like them.)
