Panthera looked over at Buck and saw that he was starting to dig for a grave for Woe. The Liepard weakly got up on her paws as tears continue to fall from her eyes. She then began to move over to where Buck was so she could help with digging the grave when she saw the Lairon enter the scene and offer her own help in digging the grave. Panthera was grateful for the offer and smiled at the Lairon as she said, "Thank you for offering to help us bury our friend Lapis." She had caught the Lairon's name as she introduce herself and she began to use her paws to help digging the grave with the two of them while she ignore the pain from her wound. She knew that the ice is easing it and the poison but she wanted to give Woe a proper burial before she went to get some of the Pecha berries.

Nuvema Town || Noon | 12

Saphalom was still burrowed deep within his own mental plight when he had heard Buck shout out in anger. It was the sheer, raw emotion that burned off of the Sneasel’s spirit that impacted Saphalom, making him ignore the questions and throbbing ghostly headache. In turn he also saw the heavy sorrow of the others, the likes of which were so strong it made him think even deeper about his motives, about his fate. It triggered something within his fragmented thoughts. He turned to look at the forests in half-vigilance as he thought.

The others’ sorrows made him recall someone, someone that was dear to him. It was an important person, some elder figure that cared for him at some unknown time. The memory, sadly, was left in tatters, giving him nothing to reliably recall. Whoever they were, it was as if they were calling out to him through a stubborn conscience. Do not kill the others. It warned. That is the duty of Murderers like Jacques. You will find a better purpose; trust me.

Saphalom gave a look back to the others, still caught in a raging crowd of new questions. The insanity was being reasoned with by what common sense he still held, as he grew confused and even ashamed over his own behavior. These people were becoming the fault of his anger, were they not? He should just leave them, or even murder them! By killing them, would he not also be saving them from their own sorrows? They would be free, he would be free, they would all be free! Turning his back again to the others to try to give the guise that he was keeping watch over woods for any more Undead, he held up his left hand in front of himself. The unnatural darkness of a Night Shade writhed and crawled in his palm. He stared at it for a good while, before dissipating it within a clenched fist. He was silenced by his own thoughtfulness. Rationality was returning to him. Murder would not solve anything, would it? It was just an excuse for his frustration. Why does he want to kill them so much, and how did this craving even come to be?

It began to snow lightly, making Saphalom shift his eye upwards towards the sky in idle curiosity. As he watched, something else came along to disrupt his chain of thoughts. It emerged in the form of another soul coming from the town’s surrounding forest, coming from underground multiple times and then heavily tromping into the entire group’s presence. Giving a stolid look over to Buck he watched a Lairon with a bloody, fabric-covered left face pop out from the ground. Saphalom stood there apathetically, not sure what to even think of the newcomer. Instead he ignored anything else other than the name of Lapis Lazuli as he considered the team’s plight. His team’s plight....? They showed true acceptance of him, and not deceit--a thing he thought only a joke in this mad Epidemic. Maybe it was not so ridiculous after all?

With a newly considerate mind, he stepped over to the corpse of Woe. With Panthera, Buck, and Unique all digging--along with the newcomer Lapis if Buck accepts her help--it would take little time for a hole to be made. If any more people joined it would just be counterproductive, so instead he waited for them to finish. Saphalom was a proficient user Psychic, so with Buck’s permission he would gently place Woe into his resting place. And yet he could not help but stab at the dark humor of laying another Ghost’s corpse to rest. What a ridiculous ritual it was, even though it held sentimental value for them all.

((OOC -- If you all want me to, Saphalom could put Woe in the grave with Psychic :1))

(That works just fine with me Veil)

Panthera weakly finish digging the grave for Woe. She knew that she will have to get those Pecha berries soon before the ice completely melts on her side and the poison will spread in her body. She laid down near the grave where she helped Buck and Unique dig the grave. She began to pant a bit as she tried to get some strength back in her body so she could get those Pecha berries before the poison gets worst inside her. She knew she still had enough time to consume them and destroy what poison is in her body.

Both Panthera and Unique opted to help dig the grave. Buck felt an urge to tell them both to piss off and let him do it himself, but he had neither the heart nor energy. The cut on his knee throbbed and the blood tickled his leg as it drizzled down. He didn't want to remove the glass from it; the glass that had once been a part of Woe's body, now embedded into his leg and causing yet more pain. As if he wasn't feeling enough already...

Still, he continued to dig relentlessly, tossing large handfuls of dirt behind him. Slowly the hole started to get big enough to fit Woe into it. But just then a silver head popping up from the ground startled Buck and he almost fell into the hole himself. "Hi......Want some help?" the Pokemon asked before introducing herself with a name that Buck didn't want to try and pronounce. Regaining his balance, Buck gave the Lairon a sardonic look. "Oh no, no, not at all! We have it under control!" he snarled, his voice oozing with sarcasm as he carried on digging. "You could get out of the way, though, that would be great." The nerve of her to just turn up like this and poke her nose where it didn't belong! Piss off, he silently urged her.

Once he was satisfied that the grave was wide and deep enough, Buck finally stopped. Wiping the sweat off his forehead he turned to Saphalom. "Could you ... perhaps ... get him in here?" he asked flatly, too tired to form a proper sentence.

As the grave was finished, Unique walked a bit backwards. Then he turned back into his normal form once more.

He looked at Woe, sadness in his eyes. But he knew this was how it would always be for him. At least until the day his body could no longer keep the virus in his system. But for now, he was still walking. He could still fell the pain of losing someone he knew. He looked to the sky as he let the memories he had with Woe roll though his mind.

Post by Lucario Sun Aug 19, 2012 2:00 pm

Days! Days he had been tracking her! All over this damn region, but she always remained underground. The one time he had seen her he caught a glimpse of something shiny and it held his focus ever since. It reminded him of...something. Maybe it was the color? It was a very strange shade of blue...Shaking his head the canine reached out with his aura sense to find where his prey had gotten to, and when he tracked her to a small town he was elated to see that she was above ground for the first time since spotting her.

The sparkling blue gem caught his attention once more and Lucario moved quickly so he wouldn't be spotted. Keeping to shadow the dark purple canine blended in easily, his glowing red eyes as he traced the groups auras the only thing thing that might give him away. She was near a group of other living pokemon, surrounded by what looked like the work of one of his brethren. A sense of sadistic pride swelled inside him at the thought as he surveyed the scene, and maybe if he was lucky he could catch up to his brother. But first, that sparkling blue would be his.

While the others busied themselves with digging a grave for his brother's kill Lucario made his move. Using Psychic he lifted the female Lairon from the ground and sent her flying away from the group and closer to himself. Trying to figure out where the blue shiny was he slammed her around multiple times, taking out a few walls around the town and leaving plenty of large craters in his wake. But the sparkling blue object was nowhere to be seen. Enraged, Lucario dragged the Lairon to him before dropping his Psychic to let her fall.

"You...you have hidden it!" He screamed, blasting her with a Dragon Pulse. "Where is it! Tell me!" He didn't realize that in all of his thrashing he had left the female unconscious and she could not answer, so his anger only grew. Tiring of her games he charged a massive Aura Sphere and sent it straight through the middle of the prone form. The ball of energy blasted through the creature with such force that it took chunks of her innards with it and splattered them across the town, leveling a small house when it finally made contact. But he still couldn't find it.

"Where?! Where is it?!" He began lifting her with a Psychic again, shaking her about even as blood and organ rained down upon him, making his sickly purple fur turn an ugly shade of brownish red. Finally, something popped loose from around the female's foot and a sparkling object hit the ground. He paused in his assault of the Lairon's corpse to watch a small blue gem roll into the grass. With an almost forgetful reaction he released his Psychic and the body fell to the ground, sinking into the weakened ground.

With an almost childlike innocence Lucario picked up the small blue gem and admired his prize. A smile grace his muzzle as he held it up to the light, wiping clean the few flecks of blood that had gotten upon it. "Pretty..." Completely ignoring the rest of the group the Lucario coveted his prize and fled the town, wanting to keep his treasure all to himself.

At last the others had finished the grave for Woe, and stepped back. It was amazing just how fast the three of them managed to dig that hole, but he was grateful that they had taken the task up and given him time to come to his senses.

“Could you....perhaps....get him in here?” Buck asked flatly, fatigued from the digging. Saphalom closed his eye and nodded lightly to Buck. “Yes, I can.” After making sure that everyone was a safe distance from the grave, he began to lift up the corpse of Woe. Gently, in a careful psychic grasp he lifts all of the shards and scrapped metal. Not a piece is left behind, with all of them being placed carefully down into the hole. They were placed together at the bottom, in a minor attempt to put the body together neatly. Saphalom dimmed down in sorrowful respect for the ghost that showed so much determination for all of them.

After a moment of silence he addressed the others once more, raising up and gesturing with his hands. “Step back everyone, please.” Taking the dirt from the sides of the hole with his telekinetic abilities, he drags the mounds in carefully, filling up the hole. The dirt falls in like a waterfall, a cascade that covers what remains of their old friend, all while he makes sure that it does not disturb the corpse’s state. Within just half a minute it is done, leaving a flat mound of earth amongst the green grass of the town. There was nothing left to say, except that Saphalom hoped inwardly that Woe would be at peace. Just before he died, he could see the Chandelure’s soul dissipate into the afterlife, into whatever otherworldly realm he was destined to. Wherever he had gone, at least it would be better than this wicked world.

It was then that Saphalom sensed something lurking nearby, a force that caused even his ghostly body to shudder in disturbance. There was a malignancy to it that was all too similar to the Undead Charizard’s, which brought images of another hideous and powerful Undead to his imagination. The Lairon that had appeared earlier asking whether they wanted help was being pulled slowly from the ground, just out of his field of vision. He looked over in time to see her slothful dragging turn into a violent hurtling through the air. A telepathic blue energy was enveloping her, the telltale sign of Psychic. Her heavyweight body was thrown effortlessly about the town of Nuvema, and Saphalom sensed in the forest the terrible presence that was causing it--it was a horrific-looking Lucario, with rotting features and furiously crimson eyes. It was pleasing itself by crashing the Lairon into the earth and into the sides of buildings, leaving dirt craters and splintered sections of wall. Like some powerful god it toyed with her, until it then drew her in close. After a bout of livid and distorted words the fallen Aura Pokémon blew her to pieces, leaving a gem to fall from her blasted corpse. It picked it up and muttered to itself in wonder, before it fled from the town.

Saphalom was utterly horrified. To see another death just so soon after the first was enough to put his mind over the edge, as his stare remained fixed upon the obliterated Lairon’s corpse. This Lucario just picked up and murdered her like that, and apparently all for a gemstone lodged in one of her legs. The idea disturbed him. The scene had tormented his scattered memory, forcing even year-old parts of it back together. It made him recall some sense of cowardice, of fear that he had participated in. He could recall freshly the screams of both angry and fearful beings alike, as they polluted the atmosphere of his mind. The sound of laughter and images of Humans and Pokémon being flayed and devoured by their own family and friends.

Once again traumatized by what he had seen, Saphalom could not feel much else. He simply put a clenched hand to his forehead as his eye sealed up tightly. If the Undead were to come now then he would not care--Everything was falling apart to him, and nothing else really mattered. The helpless world was being strangled by a disease that showed no mercy, and it evoked a confusing mix of emotions from within him. Both the Lairon and Chandelure were destroyed within just under the past few minutes. So how long would it take for Panthera, for Buck, for Unique, for anyone else to die? Days? Hours? Minutes? He was both confused and angry by his own thoughts. If he could sigh right now he would have, but instead he simply chose to try and calm himself, to keep his anger under control.

Panthera had her eyes closed tightly from the pain she was feeling that she wasn't able to see when the Lairon that appeared suddenly was taken in the air but her eyes did open when she heard something being slam on the ground and the building. The Liepard watch with shock when she saw the Liaron being thrown around all over the are by what looked to be Psychic. She looked up and saw a canine she recognized as a Lucario. This caused her to glance once again at the Lairon but she wasn't able to do anything to save her as the Lucario finished the steel type Pokemon off with an Aura Sphere before picking up a blue gem that had fell off the Lairon and then walking off. "No," was all the Liepard can say. She then glance to the side to see that before the Lairon's death that Saphalom was able to finish Woe's burial which she was grateful for. Something glem in the afternoon light not far from the new grave. She looked over and saw the earring that Woe was happy, yet at the same time upset, when he saw it. The Liepard got on her paws and gently pick it up in her mouth. She knew she will have to get one of the othes to do so but she will have it put on in honor of Woe's memory. She didn't know what she could do about the Lairon but she knew she had to get some Pecha Berries before the poison gets worst. She looked at Buck, Unique, who she noticed was back in his Ditto form, and at Saphalom before she said softly, "Guys I have to get those Pecha berries in me or I'll be usless if we have to fight. Can you two see what you can do about the Lairon and then meet me back inside the building where we can regroup before we find a way out of this place." She hated ordering people around, especially her friends, but she knew they had to get out of this place and soon before more trouble finds them, that is if they can.

As Saphalom regained some of his composure, he heard Panthera speak out to the entire group. Her voice was firm and resolute, demanding for even his attention. His eye reopens and the livid pupil dims, as he listens. “Guys I have to get those Pecha berries in me or I’ll be useless if we have to fight. Can you two see what you can do about the Lairon and then meet me back inside the building where we can regroup before we find a way out of this place.”

Saphalom looks to the distant, distended body of the Lairon. Doubtlessly, her body will gather unnecessary attention from Undead. In that case it would be a good idea to bury it. So he nods to Panthera and speaks to the others. “If any of you have anything else you need to do, then you can do so. I can bury the Lairon’s body myself.” There was no sense in having Buck or Unique waste any more energy trying to dig. He barely even did anything, so this would be a good time to pull his own weight.

He steps over to the forest at the town’s outskirts, where the victim lay. The snow was still falling lightly, making the walk almost ironically calm. Saphalom could sense no Undead stepping from the forest or from the air, and did not sense the unholy energy of that demon Lucario. He makes it to the corpse, looking down at it with a strange contempt. How sad it was that someone went and gone so fast. However, without giving it any other thought he begins to use Psychic, ripping chunks in the ground beside the body to create a grave. While he worked he still kept a passive caution for any Undead, considerate of the idea that he could be pounced on at any moment. The sooner he got this grave dug the better.

“If any of you have anything else you need to do, then you can do so. I can bury the Lairon’s body myself.” Panthera heard Saphalom said and was grateful that the Dusclops will take care of the Lairon's body. She moved carefully over to the building they had recently left before all this horrible things happened with Jacques and then the two undead. The Shiny Liepard went up the stairs and entered the room where the berries were left. She was glad to see the pink Pecha Berries not to far from the stairs. She went over to them and ate two of them to be on the safe side before she look up and looked around the room memories of what Woe did in here. She sighed sadly at the memory before she laid down to rest a bit while she waited for the others to join her in the building.

Nuvema Town/Early Afternoon (36)
((You don't mind if I move the time along a little bit, do you Silve? ^^;))

Buck watched in silence as Saphalom gave Woe the burial that he deserved. He had nothing to say, no parting words for the Chandelure as the hole was covered in dirt, sealing his body away forever. Woe had known how Buck had actually viewed him as a friend instead of a mere acquaintance or a hindrance. He didn't need to tell him that he'd miss him. The last tear that fell from Buck's eye landed on the dirt pile and sunk into it. At least that would always remind Woe that Buck would never forget him.

Sighing ruefully, he turned away from the scene. He planned to take Panthera back inside and find some berries to cure her poisoned wound, but then more chaos erupted. A Lucario burst onto the scene and immediately began to brutally attack the Lairon that had appeared before. Buck squeezed his eyes shut and shook his head, clutching it. Not able to witness another death so soon after the last one, he took off into their building. After hobbling up the stairs, leaving a trail of blood from his injured knee, he sat in the corner of the upper floor, holding his head in his hands. No more... He shook it again, fiercely, as he tried to block out the screams of pain and fury from outside. Who's going to be next...?

A creak in the floorboards startled Buck, but he looked up and spotted with relief that it was just Panthera. The Liepard ate a couple of Pecha Berries on the ground and then settled down nearby. Shakily, Buck got to his feet and limped over to her. On his way he picked up two Oran berries and another Pecha. He sat down next to Panthera and rolled the Pecha Berry towards her. "One more," he said, his tone flat as he ate the Orans that he'd found, hoping they'd take some of the pain out of his knee.

Nuvema Town || Early Afternoon | 15


Saphalom telekinetically lifted one chunk of earth after the other, until a hole large enough to hold the Lairon was made. Satisfied, he lifts the fragmented and gory corpse with a heave and drops it carefully into the hole. The grave size was unnervingly perfect. It caused him to shudder ever so lightly, as his own imagination sadistically exploited the moment. His mind willed forth images of himself burying not only the grave of Woe but also those of his remaining companions’, their bodies maimed in similar ways to the hapless Lairon. One hard blink was all it took to push the disturbing thoughts to the back of his mind, though, as he took the dirt at the side of the grave and dragged it in. After it was all in he packed it down tightly, leaving a scar in the earth where Lapis, the unknown Larion, was not buried.

He left the scene of the burial eagerly, heading straight towards the humble two-roofed building on the other side of town that sheltered Panthera. Seeing that Buck was nowhere to be sensed, Saphalom also assumed that he must have gone into the building also. As the Dusclops walked through the quiet town he looked to his left, towards the small Pokémon Center near the exit of the town. The inferno that had encompassed the structure has now reached the peak of its life, belching embers and dark smoke from its insides while the fires lapped upwards through the windows to ignite the fragile wooden skin of its victim. Thankfully, the building was not close enough to the forest to catch it on fire. The winds were also calm--almost as if their breaths had died down in solemn respect for the strife that has plagued this town of few members.

As he walked by he noticed that Unique was still lying near Woe’s grave, having reformed into his Ditto form. He was mulling over his thoughts as he looked to the sky, and Saphalom felt the need to extend some courtesy. However, a certain trouble came to his senses--throughout the Ditto’s forms he had noticed the purple splotches that constantly tainted his being. So Unique is infected? It disturbed him to know that eventually they would lose another person sooner or later. But for the meantime they all needed to get back inside. “Unique,” he suggested, “I am heading back to Buck and Panthera. Maybe you should come as well so you are not caught alone by any Undead?”

Saphalom continued on, taking his trip back to the shelter cautiously. Now that he had considered the idea of the Undead coming, he began to grow alert again. The shadows of the day were getting longer, advising all of the onset of the early afternoon. There was still so much time to burn until nightfall. But what should they do after these events? Hide away and wait for things to settle down? That would probably be the best option.

Outside Nuevema Town ~ Early Afternoon ~ (27)

Thud!
Dust flew up from the dry path as the hero Infernape found herself pinned down to the ground by a mass of rotting meat that smelt worse than a Garbodour and leaked flames like a broken radiator. Her five-fingered hands were pinned under her by the creature’s rotting bulk; she could see the piggy greed in its tiny red eyes as the Darmanitan opened its large toothy mouth and roared at her.
Get your stinking hands off me you great dirty ape!” Flame screeched back; a purely animal sound of desperation as she fumbled to get into an attack position.
She tried to raise her arm and had to wince in pain as her still unhealed bite wound cracked and oozed more blood onto the inside of her Defence Scarf.
The Undead thought it had won and it gloated in a stupid animal kind of way as Flame’s head blaze flared defiantly in the face of approaching defeat.
It raised one meaty hand powerful enough to lift a dump truck and the Infernape planted her feet right in the middle of its stumpy chest and kicked backwards with all her might.
The Darmanitan was sent flying as the hero Infernape swiftly pulled herself to her feet and into the air, twirling around in a few back flips before ballooning her cheeks and blowing out a solid column of burning flame out at the undead.
You won’t extinguish me that easily” She taunts, beckoning with one black skinned finger.
The undead roars and charges blindly at her as the Infernape hoped it would.
Like a Matador taunting a Tauros Flame dances around it, using her incredible speed and agility to dodge the creature’s wild swipes and laughing. She leaps onto the Darmatitan’s back as it flails at her and drives a Thunder Punch straight into one gooey rotting eye with a splash. Dark goo still sticking to her fingers as she leaps free Flame pulls a face of disgust.
When the Darmanitan turns snorting with rage to try and ensnare her again she does another back flip and faces it head on.
The Infernape crouches low to reduce her centre of gravity. One false move from her opponent is all it will take to turn its opponent into a cart-wheeling acrobatic wheel of fire and fists.
As it staggers round in a circle, disorientated by the loss of its eye, Flame hones all four sets of her claws to a razor sharp edge and her tangerine furred tail twitches in anticipation.
The stupid fire gorilla had ambushed her, to Flame’s derision. She had just been walking along on her eternally drifting path through Unova when it had the cheek to drop out of the trees on her and try and unscrew her head by the ears. The sheer cheek of it!
Well she had turned out to be a bit spicier a meal than the undead had been expecting and she was not going to get killed by some stupid drooling Infernape wannabe.
Hey Stink-breath!” She yelled after it and the Darmanitan turned around, snorting vast clouds of steam from its blunt nose in a rage. “I’ve had better fights with a baby Turtwig!
Making the ground quake with the movement of its charge the Darmatian hurtles straight towards her faster than the Infernape had been expecting.
A bead of sweat runs down her silver-furred brow as Flame mentally calculates the speed at which the other fire/fighting type is approaching. She has no time to get out of the way and if this attack doesn’t work the Darminitan will hit her with enough force to shatter every bone in her body.
Her slowly fading to purple eyes focus as she discards her worries and draws her strength inwards.
She can hear the deep boom of approaching steps as the Darmanitan’s knuckles graze the ground.
She can see the way the dirt clods jump in time to every beat.
She can even feel the beginning of the sick rotting heat whooshing from the Darmanitan’s toothy mouth but she puts all of those things out of her mind as she holds her hands loosely and brings them around to rest oh her chest, fingers splayed and wrists connected. A spark of light grows between her hands as she focuses all her energy into one powerful blast.
Thud!
It’s coming closer…
Thud!
And closer.
Flame’s eyes flash open and she swings her hands around with a screech of pure simian fury. The Focus Blast explodes outwards like a laser from her black-skinned hands and hits the stinking undead firmly in the stomach, sending it flying back into the forest from where it had come from. It does not return.
The Infernape blows a wisp of smoke off her fingers and smiles a cool, laidback kind of smile.
Flame 1, Stinking Dirty Ape 0
It is only then a stinging pain from her arm reminds her that she has torn open the Druddigon bite wound again and she winces in pain. Did a wound from an undead take longer to heal than an ordinary one or did it just not heal at all…
Flame shudders at that last thought and swiftly continues on her way to Nuvema Town. Her fingers absentmindedly play with the knot of her Defence Scarf as she drops to a four-legged lope for extra speed.

Nuvema Town || Early Afternoon (44)

(Nah I don't mind Night)

Panthera sighed softly as she tried to relax until she heard someone moving over to her. The Shiny Liepard looked up and saw that Buck was in here with her. She was surprised that she didn't noticed him earlier but figured that she was in too much pain to pay attention. She heard him say,"One more," before he gave her another Pecha Berry. She smiled softly before she nodded and took the berry and ate it. She had heard the flatness in Buck's voice as he spoke so she looked at her friend with deep concern. She wanted to nuzzle him in a comforting way but she wasn't sure if he will accept it so she just used her tail to lightly touch his cheek in hopes that it will comfort him while she said softly, "Thanks Buck." She wish to do more to comfort him but there wasn't much she can do because she knew she has to rest while the berries take effect. She had noticed Buck's limp and was glad that he was eating Oran berries. She hopes that they will help him for now until they rest up. She knew they may need to find another place to go and, hopefully, find something that will help with Buck's limp so it won't become permanent.

Nuvema Town/Early Afternoon (37)

Buck chewed his Oran Berry slowly, savouring the many flavours that danced on his tongue. He licked the blue juice from around his mouth and sighed as the wound on his knee started to feel a little better. He'd still have to find a way to stop it from bleeding though. Maybe I can tie a leaf around it or something ... or perhaps there's some water nearby. I am kinda thirsty...

He jumped as something soft touched his cheek. It was Panthera's tail. Buck wondered why on earth she was doing such a thing; was she about to try something? But the look on her face was not seductive, but gentle and reassuring. She thanked him for the berries he'd collected. "No problem, I guess," he shrugged, trying not to sound too fussed. "Shortly I'll be going out to see if there's a fresh water source around here somewhere. Let me know if you want me to bring back any more for you."

With a soft groan he got up and maneuvered his leg, bending the knee back and forth. It still stung but at least he could move it better. He made his way over to the window and hopped up, watching Saphalom and Unique conversing and hoping they would come back in soon. The room was getting a bit stuffy in the warm weather so he opened the window a little to let in a cool breeze. His ear flicked as he heard aggressive yelling in the distance, and he called down to his friends, "Hey, you guys should come back up now!" The last thing he wanted was for something to come smashing out of the undergrowth and killing anyone else. He wasn't sure if his heart could take it. Besides, he needed someone (except Panthera) to go with him to collect water, and he wasn't quite ready to go back outside yet.

Unique was still lost in his thoughts the second the ghost one, he had forgotten his name, walked over near him. “Unique, I am heading back to Buck and Panthera. Maybe you should come as well so you are not caught alone by any Undead?” he looked at him and nodded, following when he started walking. He slowly got lost in thoughts, when Buck called out at both of them. "Hey, you guys should come back up now!" Unique looked up at him. And since he got uneasy, he looked at buck and used transform one more time on him.

He looked back. The mark on his back clearly had grown bigger. He then quickly climbed up to the window that buck was standing in, looking off to try and see what Buck was yelling about.

Nuvema Town || Early Afternoon | 16

A cacophony coming from behind him assured Saphalom of his undead paranoia. It was coming from far down the main road leading into Nuvema Town. The sounds were those of utter carnage--a distant voice was throwing loud insults while some large, unknown beast was emitting furious bellows. It was all plainly audible over the ambience of the immolated Pokémon Center, echoing through the muted town air.

Just as Saphalom had wanted, Buck had also taken full notice of the same conflict. The sneasel had pulled up a window and called out to both him and Unique. “Hey, you guys should come back up now!” That was certainly a good idea, especially until they knew who was causing that chaos. Saphalom resumed his stride to the house, nervousness spurring his walk into long strides. As he came within a few feet of the first floor’s doorway, he could sense Unique clambering up the wall of the house--he was probably scaling up after transforming into Buck. It did not really matter to him.

After entering the comforting darkness of the building, Saphalom took a moment to quiet his thoughts. The fight had finally stopped. However, not until after it ended with the brutal climax of an explosive attack that was followed by the rumbling of a few trees. So this stranger wielded impressive power as well? Saphalom had so many questions that he was eager to learn the answers to, and in his curious mind he was even quite eager to discover what sort of being this was. With the fight finally over, he went up the stairs to meet with the others at the second floor.

Saphalom was still questioning who this oncoming person was as he walked up the stairs, unable to move away his eagerness to learn. There was no questioning that this stranger was coming towards the town, for where else would they be going? Whoever it was did not care about yelling, and whoever has the gall to do that is certainly sure of their power. Until he and the others are sure that this person is not a large threat to them, they should stay in the dim lighting of the building. Once they learned of the stranger and proved them as a threat or non-threat, then the team could get to whatever they needed to do before nightfall.

Upon reaching the second floor, Saphalom quietly glanced the others’ situations before joining Buck by the window. The dusclops’s gaze was intently focused upon the wide dirt pathway leading into the town. Now, who was this person coming to town?

Nuevema Town ~ Early Afternoon ~ (28)

Immediatly the charred harsh scent of the burning fire is the first thing to reach her long before she even sees the black smudge of smoke on the horizon.
She speeds up, looking swiftly from side to side to make sure there is not some other undead setting up a potential ambush for her. The forest is dark but no red eyes she can see are peering out at her.
The Infernape's downy white furred chest rises and falls with the effort of her loping run. Her black skinned feet push firmly off the dusty path as the torch-like flame that flares on her head cuts a bright streak of light in the air behind her.
She is barely through the screen of foilage with the faint scent of ocean air devoured by the stink of the inferno.
Flame's light blue eyes widen and she raises her arm to the knotted scarf and the oozing wound that lay beneath it.
She could not be the hero here; the pokecentre had been alight for far too long. All she could do is watch the blaze continue its gluttonous feast of the building and pray to Arceus there had been no living trapped inside when the fire had started.
No hint of a breeze disturbs the solid wall of the inferno, the air here seems death and tastes as heavy as mercuary on Flame's tongue.
Dark things happen here,the shadowed buildings seem to whipser to her. Death happens here.
The infernape turns her head towards the sky.
The smoke cloud had bleed an ill and unnatural thing across it just as the infection would soon spread its taint over her.
She shakes her head and tries to shove such undesirable thoughts from her head.
'What kind of place had this town been before?' Flame thinks as she catches her breath and absentmindely scratches a good luck sign in the dirt with her toes.
But she was still Flame the Hero. It was a title she had earnt and the Infernape would never give up. She would protect the living for as long as she could.
Carefully Flame undoes the spotted cloth of her Defense Scarf and bites her lip rather than let out her gasp of pain.
The wound is worse, the marks of each jagged tooth now surrounded by the spreading purple discoloration of the infection. The bite itself is red and inflamed and as Flame watches a thick drop of infected blood oozes down from the wound and splashes onto the dirt.
There is no hope of retreiving any medical supplies from the pokecentre; she glances over at the blaze and it belches out a tongue of fire as if mocking her.
Shaking her head Flame surveys her surroundings closely.
This town still has a bad feel about it and there is no sign of any other living, at least as far as she can see.
In a cynical kind of way that makes thing easier.
The memories of Paladin and Pure were still fresh in her heart, bleeding slowly just like her wound was.
The big question rears itself in her mind.
What to do?
Her wound is still aching horribly. Time was Flame could have taken that Darmanitan with no damage at all but now she had to be carefully in every fight that her wound would tear open. The fang marks are deeper than from any other bite the simian pokemon had ever had. If they got much deeper she might lose her arm altogether.
With the pokecentre in flames the Infernape heads determinedly to the Pokemart in search of some cloth she can use for bandages.

Panthera listened to Buck's words before he went to window to call the other's in. She lifted up her head to look over at him with concern but figured that fresh water will be a big help for everyone. After a bit she heard Saphalom join them and then she saw the other Sneasel, with a glance at the purple spot on it's back, got Panthera to realize that it was Unique. The shiny Liepard got up on her paws and walked over to the window carefully before she stopped beside Buck to look outside and then turned to try to clean up some of the dry blood off her fur that was there from the cut she got from Jacques. She knew she will have to have it covered soon or it will start bleeding again soon. Right now she was just curious about what grabbed the others attention.

Nuvema Town/Early Afternoon (38)

Unique and Saphalom promptly made their way back up to them, the former transforming into Buck again and joining him at the window ledge by climbing the drainpipe. By this point they were all watching the silent town outside, watching and waiting to see if they could detect the source of the shouting. For a few quiet minutes there was nothing, but then something ran out of the undergrowth surrounding the town and started heading towards the Poke Mart.

"What the hell is that?" Buck cried, pointing to the primate-like Pokemon as she ran. He couldn't see much but he had a feeling that she wasn't infected ... or she wasn't dangerous, at least. "Hey!" Savouring the idea of having another ally, Buck jumped from the window and started to pursue the Pokemon. "Hey, wait! Come back!" He could only hope and pray that he wasn't just about to attract the attention of an undead ... if that was the case then he'd deserve it if she decided to kill him.

Nuvema Town/Early Afternoon (36)

Panthera looked out the window with the others and caught sight of the Pokemon just as Buck did. "Hey!" she heard Buck said before he jump out the window. Panicking for the safety of her friend Panthera got up on the window seal and got ready to go after him since she wasn't sure if that Pokemon was safe but as she did so she was reminded of the gash in her side causing her to cry out in pain. She clinch her teeth together and tried to help ease the pain by taking some deep breaths but she knew that in her condition she couldn't go with buck so she asked the others softly, "Can one of you two please go with Buck and make sure he doesn't get hurt. I can't or else I'll bleed even more then I am already from this wound." She then looked at Unique and Saphalom hoping that one of them will do as she ask.
