    Battle Tower [4th Floor]|Afternoon
    117|80

    Following the others, Mathias had thought of the threat his brother brings to the others. They won't be safe from him much longer as long as he's around. Wanting to leave the others for their own safety, the Charizard was about to tell Bastet that she'd be safer without him but realizing that even if he did leave, they would still be in danger and what if Cinder said was true, then Gabriel would go after them after he's done with him. There was no way out of this. His look shown that he was very worried about the others well being. Maybe they'll be safer without me. I can't risk Gabriel coming after them if what Cinder said is true. No, I know how Gabriel is, even if he did find me alone and infected me, he'd still come after the others. Damn it, what to do? Then Mathias realized what would happen if he ran away. It would have been no better than him trying it back in the past. Even then, Bastet was always able to detect his thoughts.

    The Charizard hears Cinder and what she said that made things more of a danger to use the lift. "So what, we try the elevators again? I thought we deemed them unsafe." The ones back on the seventh floor was unsafe, especially the one that was on the opposite side. Then he heard a whirl of the machinery coming to life and activating as something was coming down. There was one still in full working order. "Look at that, its still charged!" Most of the machines had to be charged through Etin's electricity. Looks like their luck is getting better. "Send us to the ground floor!" Etin chants. Mathias gets in and places the box in the corner so that it wouldn't be in the way of the others.

    Bastet picked up something with her psychic powers. though it wasn't Mathias' it was something else, it was crying and saying it doesn't want to feed on the living. It just wanted to be left in peace so it can forever be with its trainer in the afterlife. Poor thing, undeath is a curse and it just wants to rest in peace. there's nothing we can do for it. Getting into the elevator, the espeon then shut the undead's thoughts out of her mind. There was nothing they could do for it at this point. Then she thought about Xiao, would he be able to find them? She had no doubt on that but from his own expressions, Bastet would have to say that he's got some other things going on. "Odd that this one still works. At least now we can get back to the first floor to see where Arry's hiding at. Poor kid's probably scared being all alone." She said as she was worried about Arry as well. Then she looks at Etin, she couldn't help but have a cheerful smile on her. "You're really excited Etin. Hmm, you seem to like elevators a lot, they are fun after all when you're riding with friends." Bastet said happily.

    Mathias held the door open so that the rest can get in. "This should hold us. Odd though, shouldn't this had lost its power over time?" Bringing up a valid point, it was different from the one Etin had to power. Even then, something felt off. Not in a bad way but enough to make it feel like a mystery to him. Even then, Mathias shrugs his shoulders and doesn't think of it. "We're coming Arry, please be okay."

    The Battle Tower [1st Floor] || Afternoon
    Cinder 225 || Faux 185


    "Look at that, its still charged!" Etincelle was gleeful, and waltzed into the elevator without missing a beat. After their concern on the higher floors Faux was grateful that the others were putting aside their reservations without complaint as they filed into the small space. Even Cinder kept her mouth shut, giving little more than a shrug as she took her spot and impatiently waited to keep moving. "Send us to the ground floor!" Etin barked again, and once everyone was inside Cinder smashed the button a few times to get them rolling.

    "This should hold us. Odd though, shouldn't this have lost its power over time?" The doors rolled closed, and with a small shudder the car started to move. "It hasn't been that long, but being a moving object likely helped." An elevator was unlike a standard vehicle, but perhaps much like a car motion would help the battery hold the charge they gave it. Traveling another few floors would jazz it up again, but after their departure it would discharge once more from inactivity. Hopefully though, they would not need to return here and deal with it a second time.

    As the elevator cruised downward it passed through the last few floors. The glass walls held back nothing aside from smell, and while curious Cinder turned her gaze toward the floor as they passed through the horrific scene. Faux kept her gaze locked forward, unwavering, but even the windows were dark with splatters and made for a dim sight. Decomposing bodies, blood stains, pain.. Within seconds they passed it by, but she could pull several assumptions together; whoever had lived here made camp on that floor, and whatever brought their end came up from the ground floor. An undead raid perhaps, or some rival faction that blocked off their escape. Had they followed those that were returning home, or did they want this building for themselves? Another heartbeat passed, and they slide down another floor. The sunlight returned, filtering in through the windows, and with it Faux pushed those grim thoughts aside. It would do her no good to fester, and those lives had long since passed and could not be helped.

    The journey only took a few seconds but it felt like forever before the elevator finally settled on the ground floor and let the doors slide open. Cinder had almost forgotten how battle-stained and disheveled the first floor was, but no amount of apprehension would stop her from searching. "Arry! Arry you around here?" She calls out, voice bouncing loudly around the room as she charged forward. The dusty place made it hard to smell anything, and their own scents still lingered from when they were entered earlier. Her face twists, ears quivering for the slightest noise. Where is he?! Tromping around the room the Quilava sniffs and looks for any signs of the child. Some place he could be hiding, anything that could have caught his attention. "...He wouldn't just leave, right?"

    Etincelle 201 || Melanie 201


    "Odd that this one still works. At least now we can get back to the first floor to see where Arry's hiding at. Poor kid's probably scared being all alone." Shuffling inside Melanie took her place among the others. "He knows to be brave." She assured Bastet, but was compelled to continue for her own sake. "He's more resilient than you think." Arry had surprised them time and time again, and while this one was not welcome it was no different than before.

    With hurried steps Etincelle followed along, his steps light as he made his way inside. "You're really excited Etin. Hmm, you seem to like elevators a lot, they are fun after all when you're riding with friends." "I just think they're neat." He quipped while pawing at the wall. "We didn't have anything like this where I come from." He was a wild Pokemon after all, and even the trinkets his father brought home could not compare to this. With a deep breath he pushes the memory away and grounds himself in the present. "But I just want to get to Arry as soon as possible."

    "This should hold us. Odd though, shouldn't this had lost its power over time?" Was that why all these electrical devices weren't working? "If it did I could always give it another jolt!" It had been a bit strange the first time, and the grease wasn't great, but with growing experience in electronics under his belt the Electrike was confident he could move them along once again. While it was unneeded this time around he was still more than willing to volunteer, and eagerly tapped his paws to be ready at a moments notice.

    In no time at all the elevator rolled back down to the first floor, the charge holding just fine and its speed making their entire journey seem like a crawl. As soon as the doors were open the Pokemon were charging out, and Cinder called, "Arry! Arry you around here?" Melanie took cautious steps out, the strength in her leg nearly a foreign sensation, but she could hardly acknowledge it as the stank of the lowest floor hit her once more. Whipping a paw her snout the fox winces at the smell of the disgusting room, but powers through as she starts sniffing about for the young Pokemon. "Arry, come out!" She begs, voice gentle but loud enough to carry. When silence returns to their calls a stone settles within Melanie's belly. Arry would not ignore or hide from them, even if he was in trouble he would want their safety. That could only mean.. "...He wouldn't just leave, right?"

    Nestling her nose to the dank floor the Ninetales sniffs about, her head weaving around until finally it hit a fresher scent trace. Her tails shoot upward instinctually at the find, paws following the scent without wavering a single step. Arry made a straight line, his path clear and unburdened, and increasing her speed the fox was only stopped as she crashed into a wall. Flicking a paw forward in front of her, and catching the scent of fresh, clean, outside air, Mel felt her heart drop even further into the pit of her stomach. "..He sure would."

    Mathias waited for the doors to open and once they did the others made a dash to find Arry. The charizard grabbed the supplies before heading out of the elevator. There wasn't much time before something bad happened. For a time, Mathias had to keep his speed down since the contents could fall out. There was no way he could keep up with the others.

    Bastet looked everywhere for him as she kept up with the others. "...He wouldn't just leave, right?" The espeon began to have fears that he may have fled. There was only small clues of the direction he went. Then it hit her, he must have gotten outside as the tracks lead to a hole in the wall. "..He sure would." The hole was small enough for him to fit through so no doubt he had gotten outside. The espeon could squeeze her head out of it if she wanted to but she'd end up getting stuck trying to pull her head back in. "He got outside, maybe we could check for any clues to see if he's around still. There has to be a sign at least that he's okay." Bastet said as she couldn't pick up Arry's thoughts anywhere.

    Mathias finally caught up to the others, keeping ahold of the supplies as he looked around seeing the others expressions. He didn't need "Damn it, where could he have gone? I can't do much carrying this around." The charizard really couldn't and it would leave him as an open target with no way of defending himself from attack. He looks at Cinder hoping she would let him head back to the battle castle to place the supplies inside so he could have his claws free again.

    The Battle Frontier || Afternoon
    Cinder 226 || Faux 186


    Kicking up a storm of papers, boxes, and other debris Cinder raced about while upturning any possible hiding places she could spot. Arry wasn't capable of going back up the Tower so he had to be down here. Yet every box she flipped, furniture piece she nudged, and crevice she peered in to turned up empty handed while the young Pokemon's scent grew more and more stale. Their calls remained unanswered, and the silence was smothering to the fervent group of Pokemon as they waited with baited breath.

    Faux sniffed and searched, following along the larger fox as they tracked the small Pokemon's lingering scent. It trailed about the room, fearless, no scent of fresh blood or chasing undead, and offered no further clues to why he ran away. Bastet found small tracks in the mess, thin dots from his short legs, and an even more worrying gap with fresh air coming from it. "..He sure would." Melanie shudders while sniffing the hole in the wall. Bastet does the same, but the space is much too small for any of them to fit through. Even as the next smallest 'mon the Vulpix did not like the prospect of squeezing through the gap, and her head instantly snaps to doors they had entered from.

    "He got outside, maybe we could check for any clues to see if he's around still. There has to be a sign at least that he's okay." With a quick trot the fox passes the threshold to the outside world. The afternoon sun was still bright and things looked unchanged from when they had entered. Aside from the front landing, the raised building only had a thin strip of walkway going around it, leaving little for them to explore. Immediately the fox heads for area they had sniffed on the inside. A flowerbed rimmed the building, though it was long dead and taken over by weeds. When they finally located the hole behind tall stalks of grass fox once again picks up Arry's scent. He had emerged, and small divines from his feet marred the mud. "Look here," she directs, pointing with her nose. The pinprick stubs of an Aron would sink in any soft ground, but they had little for mud to cling to. A few tracks trailed away from the hole and back toward the main walkway but quickly faded away afterward. Following after the specks like a hound dog Faux barks again without stopping. "He's on the move."

    Standing tall Cinder lets her gaze slide over the landscape of the Battle Frontier. Despite the stress and priority of this situation her mind cant help but picture it in its prime, people and Pokemon milling about the fantastic venue. Arry did not know the glories of this place, or what to expect from it. He had no preconceived notions other than what they had experienced with him, or at least she could assume. The state of the place was a far cry from what she dreamed of, but to a child it was still fantastical and huge, and was a wonderland for imagintion.
    Thus, she wondered, what would Arry would do next if left on his own?
    Picturing the Frontier from a lone child's eyes a few possibilities came to mind. For a more timid Pokemon like Arry, she could picture him returning home on some old lesson from his parents. That it was a safe place, the right place to go when separated from the others when staying still was not an option. Spying the Battle Castle in the distance she knew he could make it make with a little bit of bravery, and as Faux's path took them down the stairway to ground level, Cinder could almost picture the Aron racing off toward it.

    Running up to Faux the Quilava could not see the path she trail she was following. Arry's scent was light, the wind dragging it around, and the tracks had ended long ago. "At least theres no blood." The fox grumbles as she marches onward, her mind solely on following along his path. Cinder's eyes refused to stay on the ground. Even though Arry was a low-bearing Pokemon, one would look up with wonder. Wide eyes to the sky, full of life and imagination. As the group turns and the faded pink shape of another facility fills her view Cinder's heart sinks. The wonder of another unexplored place was hard to ignore, and without a firm guiding hand to tell him no Cinder could see little that would dissuade him. "Oh gods we're facing the Battle Hall. What if he went toward it, or inside?!"

    The Battle Frontier || Afternoon
    Etincelle 202 || Melanie 202


    Melanie can feel the fresh air coming from the hole in the wall, the gap surely large enough for a small Pokemon to fit through. Had something scared him out or caught his attention from the other side? Scratching her paws against the ground anxiously Melanie backs away from the hole and desperately sniffs for another trail or any sign he had gone another way. "He got outside, maybe we could check for any clues to see if he's around still. There has to be a sign at least that he's okay." Bastet confirms her fears, and as quick as they found it the group moved outside to continue investigating.

    The texture of the ground outside made Mel uneasy, her head swimming already as she tried to keep her bears. Etincelle did a quick check on her before heading to the weeds, his sniffer going furious in search. Arry's scent did not linger in the area, the trail quickly continuing onward along with a faint few yards of prints. "He's on the move." Faux grunts, pushing them forward without room for argument. Nudging Mel down the raised walkway and to ground level the physical trail had already vanished. The lad's scent was thin, their own scents from earlier still lingering on the path as they retraced their steps.

    "At least theres no blood." Faux sighs, her voice tense rather than relieved. A hesitant 'for now' passes through the minds of the Pokemon as they follow along, their fears always present in the backs of their minds. "He really did just wander off.." The Ninetales sighs as well, a fresh wash of shame weighing heavy on voice. If she had been watching him then they would know if he was safe or not. Instead they where on a wild goose chase with an unknown ending or destination. "Damn it, where could he have gone? I can't do much carrying this around." Etincelle sympathized with the exasperated Charizard, the cumbersome box would make most things difficult let alone searching for a little one. "Maybe he just went back to the Battle Castle. Its a familiar place, and we took this same path to get here." He suggests, trying to stay positive and keep tensions down. It seemed like the most obvious place to him, or at least the most optimistic.

    Melanie shook her head, her pelt itching with unease. Should they start calling out for him? At what point would he be able to hear them instead of possibly alerting anything in the area and putting him in further danger? Her ears flick, listening for any unwanted creatures. "Oh gods we're facing the Battle Hall. What if he went toward it, or inside?!" Cinder suddenly exclaimed, the fox unaware of their proximity to the other facility. "What?!" The Ninetales yelps, the possibility horrifying. "He wouldn't, surely he wouldn't!" But this entire stunt was already not like him. Given the horrors they had seen in all three buildings they had secured thus far she could only imagine this place would be no better. He'd be goner......!

    Feeling faint and weak in the paws Melanie starts pacing the group, sniffing furiously at the ground and calling Arry's name. Seeing her distress Etincelle's paws start working the ground uncomfortably and he has to stifle a whine. He wanted to find their missing charge as much as anyone, and he was probably their best tracker!, but given Mel's state he knows priorities must shift. "Mathias, Mel and I will go back to the Battle Castle with you to drop of the supplies. Then we can check if Arry came back while we're there." Voluntelling the Ninetales for a different task would hopefully distract her, and checking their base was a valid and nessecary step. "And then everyone else can make sure he didn't.. wander in to that place."
