Mauville City [Mauville Hills]/Late Night (12)
This was one hell of a pickle. Gramps was right; casting any form of light would attract any undead that were down there, so shooting a bolt of fire from his staff was out of the question. Not to mention accidentally burning the entire place to the ground, like Kenna had mentioned. "Anything right below us? Like another one of these platform things?" she asked.
Sirius leaned over as far as he dared and straightened up a few seconds later with a shake of his head. "No, I don't think so. I mean..." He thoughtfully scratched behind one of his large ears. "I might be able to Psychic one or two of you down, provided you're not too heavy and don't mind that, but ... where does that leave the rest of us?" Well, damn. He should've known it wouldn't be plain sailing for long. If only they could climb down in some way...
"...Wait!" the Delphox suddenly cried, dashing back into the room and beginning to tug on the dusty curtains that were hanging on either side of the door. "Maybe if we roll these up and tie them together, we can make a rope." He glanced back over his shoulder towards the bedroom door. "We can use the bed sheets too." Of course there would be a solution somewhere. Hah, he was smarter than he looked.
"Somebody give me a hand with this," he said, pulling hard on the stubborn curtains. "And see if there's anything else we can use somewhere." He was so excited; they were going to get out of here. Orion too, and then he could dodge his brother's furious attacks once more while he tried to talk things through in a rational way. Everything would be normal again.
Except, in all the excitement, he did not notice that his brother was gone.
