Nevan's tail tucked in beneath her as her ears and body lowered close to the ground. Her stomach was only an inch from the floor as the sound of hooves tapped across the floor. She knew of a few hoofed animals in the area, however the tapping also sounded like claws against a chalk board. As if the hooves had gotten sharper, and one was being drug. A putrid stink began to filter throughout the Pokemart. It was enough to nearly make the Espeon vomit. It was a stink of rotting flesh... flesh that had been decaying for quite some time now. Whatever had entered the store. It was without a doubt, undead.
Her heart pounded as Nevan's jaws opened to reveal tiny fangs. More and more she lowered herself, until her amethyst eyes were just able to see beneath the shelf she hid behind. All she could see was was slender legs. One of the hind ones had a bone jutting out right at the ankle, and was also the one being drug on the floor. The sight of it made her cringe, and she further observed the specimen. Its four hooves were badly splintered. Its fur mattered, and much of it loss. It was slowly tapping around, and was in the isle over from where she was. Was it about to turn down her isle? Was it following her scent? Slowly, she began to back away from the shelves when her rear bumped into a small stand. Causing a number of cans and items to tumbled down, one in particular hit her in the head and fell to the ground with the loudest clink she had ever heard. Her eyes followed it, and recognized it as a Potion...
The noises had definitely attracted the attention of the monster in beyond her isle. For a low, hoarse bleat suddenly echoed through the desecrated building as the monster reared up. Its front hooves thrashed forward and down the shelves came, Nevan was to shocked to move out the way. However, she did grab hold of the Potion. Tightly holding it in her jaws, the shelf collapsed on top of her while a mountain of items piled on top of her. Immediately, the creature went to stomp at where it had last seen her. The Sun Pokemon suddenly shot from beneath the items, a dazzling light followed behind her as she kicked off the ground and landed on the counter. The Potion still in her jaws, her fur bristled and her tail furiously whipped from side to side as her fur stood on end.
Turns out, the creature was a Stantler. Its body bloated and a sickly gray while its intestines hung from its belly. Crimson eyes turned on her, and the monstrosity came charging. Its sharpened horns shown red as blood glistened on its points. The attack Nevan had been charging was suddenly released. From her gem, blasted a powerful Psybeam headed straight for the Stantler however it quickly sidestepped and the Espeon gasped. She launched herself into the air, while the horns of the undead slammed straight into the counter. Completely destroying it. She barely had time to recover from her land, for the Stantler had removed its horns from the now tattered counter and was running at her again. Whatever happened, she had no intention of releasing the Potion. Her gem glowed faintly, releasing a ball of white energy into the air. It floated up and suddenly disappeared into hanging lights above.
Nevan charged forward, suddenly gaining speed as she used a Quick Attack to give her a boost. The Stantler slammed its horns to the ground, trying to smash and mutilate her when she was close enough but she had bounded right over it, landing on the other side. It went to whip right around, but Nevan was quicker. She fired yet another Psybeam, this time landing a direct hit on its rear and causing it to stumble. It let out another terrifying ghostly bleat before turning on her and throwing itself at her. She managed to once again avoid those nasty horns, however it stepped just in time to roughly dig its shoulder into her chest with a great deal of force. It was enough to send her flying across the room and right into the wall. The impact made her lose her breath, and for a moment her body felt as if it were paralyzed. Thankfully she still had control.
Another bleat sounded in her hears, and her eyes widened to see the monster looming over her. Its two hooves reared in the air ready to stomach her brains out, when suddenly the energy she had sent above came raining down. Powerful bolts of energy shot out from the lights, striking the Stantler directly and throwing it off balance. It screeched as it was forced into the wall right next to Nevan. Immediately, she fired another Future Sight. The energy was once again temporarily absorbed by the lights as she bounded away. However, she gave the monster little time to recover. A Psybeam was fired, and she didn't let up. Each paw was firmly pressed to the ground as her eyes grew brighter and brighter. The attack growing more and more powerful. It had hit the monster right in the chest, and was keeping it pinned against the wall. It thrashed all above. The tear in its abdomen only grew bigger and bigger, until finally all of its guts came spilling out on the floor.
She was getting tired, her body aching from having been so forcfully slammed into the wall. The Psybeam suddenly ceased, and the Stantler went about thrashing around madly inside the store. Setting down the Potion, Nevan panted. Opening her mouth as a white light charged up. The Stantler lurched at her for one finally attack, but she had timed it perfectly. As she fired a Swift attack, the bolts of energy from the Future Sight seemed to return stronger than ever. The two attackers hit the beast in mid air and sent it flying backwards, right back into that same spot in the wall so that it went flying through. Creating a gaping hole in the side of the building. It lay in the rubble, its body terribly misshapen from the attack. It was motionless, and hopefully, dead. She heaved, kneeling down and picking up the Potion. Hopefully she wouldn't run into anything on the way back.
She silently made her way out the Pokemart, aching and tired.
