Rock Tunnel Entrance/ Route 9| Morning
Torrent's mind and eyes were still fixated on the beyond, on the curing waterway that led to the Power Plant. Cerulean was a dangerous bet, but so was that godforsaken building. It was once the main supplier of all of Kanto's energy, countless electric pokemon making their nests in the underbelly of the building to further the plant's power. Zapdos himself had been rumored to roost there occasionally. But the humans had long abandoned it when the wild pokemon grew too numerous, and let it run by itself. It would be decrepit, it would be full of debris new and old... but its isolation away from humans and more nomadic pokemon would likely be its saving grace. Maybe there were only a few undead lurking there...
"What's our first goal for this morning?"
Therese's question started Torrent out of his reverie, his stoic gace flicking to her as he quietly mulled her question in his mind. "...Food, clean water, shelter," was his short reply. They needed all three, in that order. Food was likely going to be berries, so hopefully their juices would be enough to slake their thirsts. However, his plan of action was soon tossed aside as the little riolu pup just lit out.
"W-wait! No come back!" Torrent turned to see Noir dashing after her, and his body went rigid with fear. "Yue!"
"Noir!" he called, his large, bulky body lurching forward into an all-out dash after the little cubone. He couldn't lose another kid. Not another one...
