Phenac City[Outside The Pre Gym]|Late Afternoon|12
Polnareff growled, and Artemis felt her breath catch in her throat, but then he sighed and stated, "Problems started with some Ludicolo in Reagalm Tower. I was on vacation here with my trainer and she teleported out of there... without me." Polnareff sighed, and Artemis felt sympathetic for the bird. To be left alone by the one you love out of fear, is this what everything has came to? She vaguely thought of Elijah, how she had fought to protect him. It was all out of love. What was the purpose of living if you knew you never even tried to protect someone? To know you weren't willing to be a martyr for the one you were close to?
"If I ever see her again, I'm not sure I'll forgive her. She was an OK trainer, but she was kind of... odd." He pointed a steely feather towards a large tower way in the distance. "You can see it in the distance, can't you? It's kind of small from here but it's huge up close. We should stay away, though, people brought strong Pokémon there to fight. It's where the biggest battles in the region happened that were open to the public."
Artemis nodded. Strong living Pokemon mean strong infected, she assumed. She stared off towards the tall building, her eyes filled with wonder. She then realized how far she was from her home, and recalled how she was still a fugitive.
"Polnareff? Did you ever do something there that left a...bad mark on you?" She knew it was probably not a good question to ask, and she still didn't speak her sympathies for what has happened to him. But she wanted to see what happened...maybe pry into his life, yes...She knew she shouldn't, but what if he was somewhat like her? What if he felt as alone and afraid as she did?
