Everything that happened after she was attacked happened in a blur. Birds scattered, and then she was dragged away into a building.
"Are you alright, miss?" One of her two rescuers asked. "Y-yes....thanks..."
Aria replied, looking over her body at the wounds; stopping when she looked at her neck. Her Soothe Bell was gone, the Grass Snake panic'd. "My Soothe Bell! Those birds took it...I have to get it back!"
Aria said in a worried frenzy, heading back outside. She returned to the spot where she was being attacked, a few Starly lay dead and she looked around.
Her Soothe Bell was nowhere to be found. Then a loud, earsplitting pokemon cry was heard; but the cry was pained and distorted. Aria looked up only to see a large Staraptor in the first stages of rot. Tied around the filthy birds talons was her Soothe Bell. Aria hissed in rage and shot her vines at the zombie Staraptor with Vine Whip. They barely grazed the bird but got its attention.
Angry, the rotting creature turned and circled above Aria, as if taunting her. The Grass Snake Pokemon was not pleased. Before she could even start preparing a Leaf Tornado to blast the bird with, it flew at her, charging towards her in a Quick Attack. Aria was too wide eyed with panic to attempt to dodge and was sent tumbling backwards, a large bloodied wound on her chest.
Using the bird moment of temporary disablement Aria used her tail to to slice the creatures wing and most of its tail off with Leaf Blade. The bird blood sprayed everywhere as it screeched in agony. Aria took the bell back and strung it over her neck with a light smile and slithered back too the others, but the Staraptor was not about to give up. It ran at Aria and jumped on her back, digging its talons into her leafy flesh. Whimpering in pain as she tried to prevent herself from screaming, Aria slashed and hacked at the filthy creature with Leaf Blade but to no avail. The Staraptor simply ignored and continued to claw at the skin on her back with its talons, turning her back into a bloody, pulpy mess as it began to dig its cracked, salivating beak into her flesh.
