Echo nodded as she listened to Spirit. "So... you do what you want when you want? Jack would never let us do that. We have a strict hierarchy. Orders, rules, stuff like that. It' the life we lead and I really can't complain. I was pretty wild when I was first taken in, and that really helped. I learned how to treat others with respect, when not to stab someone with my claws. If I hadn't had it I guess I would still be running around like a maniac." She giggled a bit, "I mean it is restrictive sometimes, but it's for the best. Could you imagine Charlie running around without any rules? That would be a nightmare!"

She ate some more berries, "So, do you have any hobbies you really enjoy? I really like music. I don't sing it, but it's very pretty when someone else sings or plays a instrument. One time we went to a music performance and it was so good!"

Julia Blackwood - Heroes' Loft
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Julia guessed Kiba was right about Entei. She had never tried to ride him before, seeing as flying tended to be faster. Regardless, Kiba decided that this would be a... perfect place to just stop and cuddle. This sent a nice blush to Julia's cheeks as the two got... rather close together. Sheesh! Kiba, what would the neighbors say?! Quick, close the excellently picked out curtains! Julia returned the embrace, but when she spoke she sounded a tad unsure.

"Well--Didn't you hear the pikachu back there? If we don't go, we won't get there in time to get good seats..!"

She glanced into the distance.

"And it can't be a date if we never get there...~"

This time her tone had been a tad hinting. She was sure that sitting down and enjoying eachother's company would be far superior in this instance. And they needed to get moving, now! She flashed an awkward smile, the two's faces pretty close together at the moment.

"If... you don't mind, that is."

She couldn't tell. Perhaps he was /trying/ to avoid getting there? Maybe he was afraid of /clowns/ or something. Would they even have clowns? She certainly wasn't about to rule it out.

Catch a Ride on the Firey Tiger-Dog! Next Stop, the Circus!



Spirit tilted her head slightly. Well... I suppose the reason we're friends with Kiba in the first place is that we're friendly. I don't think Kiba would be friends with a Pokemon unless it was at least kind to some degree, and not running around maniacally. We like to live peacefully, but we do like to battle. And honestly, he does spend time with everyone, but more so with Ki. Those two are attached for more reasons than anyone else knows. She paused a bit to consider the question. ... Hobbies? Hm... ... ... ... ... Do practical jokes and scaring people count? Because otherwise I don't think I have any.

~

Kiba thought for a moment, even though the extremity of the embrace was greatly distracting, making it difficult to gather his thoughts properly. It took him a moment to respond, "We could... Ride Flare! If he's okay with it anyways..." Kiba formed his lips and created a low-pitched whistle, seeming to hold the note perfectly. After a few moments Flare had come up to them. First, glancing at Kiba, in shock to see him up and walking already. Then, even more shock, to see a girl had wrapped herself around him. Seriously, it must be the Twilight Zone! This sh** be crazy!! Flare, at a loss for (Pokemon) words, sat before them. Once the shock settled, he chuckled slightly, at the fact that the two seemed so madly in love.

Kiba simply gave the Arcanine a glance, and after a moment, he nodded and faced away from them, waiting silently. Kiba smiled (more) as he faced Julia. "Need a lift?" He laughed a bit before looking slightly serious; beneath the happy, of course. "Do you think we could stop at my tent first? I would like to dress nicer than... Well... This." 'This' referring to his shorts, lack of a shirt, his hair down, and just about every detail that he seemed to find improper.

Julia reacted with mild curiosity as Kiba made a whistling noise. What was he--She heard steps, and turned her head to see an arcanine approaching. Her eyes widened a bit and she glanced at Kiba. Had... he summoned that pokemon with a whistle? Not with a pokeball? Did it respond to all whistles, or just his natural one? How... unusual! And had he just implied that he was asking his pokemon for permission? ...Julia was beginning to get the impression that Kiba wasn't all that into battling. And yet he was at the tournament... Why /was/ he at the tournament, anyway? That was a good question.

"Flare..?"

...But she saved it for later. For the moment, she said Flare's name in a questioning tone, as if asking for confirmation that this was in-fact Flare. Kiba asked her if she wanted a lift and Julia's response was a light giggle. He then continued however and asked if they could stop at the tend. Julia seemed to think about it for a moment before responding. Well.. it didn't seem remotely unusual anyway!

"Sure..! Why not?"

And then a wobbufett popped out of the ground and knocked Julia on her head whilst exclaiming it's name. Only, not really. Julia glanced back and fourth between Flare and Kiba a couple of times, as if unsure how they were going to be getting on. Did Kiba need help? Did she need to let him go first? She had no idea.

To the tent; THEN the circus-thing!



Kiba grinned slightly. He seemed pleased with himself to cause her such astonishment. Though her thoughts seemed to match his at this point. How exactly were they supposed to sit? He'd never considered this scenario before. After a moment of thought, he simply took her hand and led her onto Flare, climbing on after her, arms around her to keep her from falling. They made their way over to the tent in which Kiba had been bed-ridden for so long. He smiled at her as he walked into the tent, trying to get every last moment to see her before he was inside and out of sight. He remained in there for a few minutes, and emerged looking much different.

Exiting the tent, he made his walk toward Flare and Julia. His hair was retied into a ponytail, while the front of his hair was now more neatly swept to the right side of his face, showing his eyes in their entirety. He had quickly groomed out the minor details, and was now wearing his most formal attire, a soft gray-black Kimono, with gentle white marks in some sort of pattern. In a way, he seemed to look like royalty. Without a thought, he made his way back to the two, climbing back up as Flare carried the two toward the big show.

Echo smiled at Spirit as she ate some more berries. "No, those are hobbies. I used to claw people us as my hobby. I was good at it." She chuckled a bit. "If you want to have other hobbies, you just have to go around and see what interests you. I know Foxtrot enjoys literature... well, the ones he can read of course and I know that Alpha likes cleaning his pendulum a lot as well as watching the stars whenever we are kept out at night. Whenever we're near snow I like to make snow angels." She giggled as she looked down with a blush, "Had a lot of fun in the snow." She was silent for a moment before she looked at Spirit. "You know... I really haven't been this open with anyone in a long time."

“So you’re telling me you guys are out of stock too? This is the Lilycove Department Store for crying out loud! How could you possibly be cleaned out?”

“Sorry sir, it just seems that we still haven’t been able to restock.” The clerk had that same apologetic tone and fake smile as every other clerk he’d seen today.

Jimmy was in disbelief, he had went to every single flipping store in the Hoenn region and none of them, not a single one had anything regarding potions, revives or status heals(there was one measly full heal, which Jimmy did purchase.) Jimmy wasn’t sure if he should laugh or what. It was like there was a huge region wide tournament going on that everybody except for him knew about it. If that was happening there would’ve been posters hung up everywhere, but there wasn’t a single flier about a tournament whatsoever. Looks like his plan on visiting the Kanto region was going to have to be postponed. “What a waste of time,” a slight chuckle escaped his lips, “hopefully Annie isn’t too tired from all that flying around, note to self... pokemon center before I leave.” Jimmy decided it might as well be time to hit the beach and relax a little bit seeing as he wasn’t going anywhere.
-------------------------------------------

The cool breeze of the sea hit him square in the face, it refreshed him. Jimmy hadn’t been to the beach in about two years, since he met his parents.. He took two steps into the sand and then a flash of light took him by surprise. Jimmy was now blind, momentarily of course.

“Jeez, couldn’t warn a fella could ya?” Jimmy could barely make out a faint human figure. Suddenly, he regained his sight. The man was wearing a relatively large trench coat and your standard creepy dude hat. “Nice beach wear buddy!” A large smile crept its way upon Jimmy’s face.

The weird dude didn’t even respond, instead he simply put on a pair of orange sunglasses and yelled at the top of his lungs, “YOU THERE! I CHALLENGE YOU TO A BATTLE! One Pokémon! DO YOU ACCEPT?!”

Jimmy was pretty impressed, he thought the sunglasses looked awesome. “I’d love to battle you man, but first you have to tell me where you got those shades!” Nothing, nada, this dude just didn’t really talk much did he. Jimmy sighed. “Fine, forget the shades... I guess they aren’t that important.” He reached behind him, clicking one of the small pokeballs attached to his empty bag, which was usually full and bloated. At the same moment the stranger releases his own pokemon and a fully grown Walrein roars, letting it’s presence on the battlefield be known. To greet the large creature was Coop, taking the roar as a challenge, the Zangoose rose to his hind legs and snarled in return.

The man called out his first move and a ice ball the size of Jimmy’s head was sent flying towards Coop. As it reached Coop, he crushed the ball sending pieces of it flying all over the place, one hitting Jimmy in the cheek. Jimmy brushed it off, “Swords Dance!” Suddenly, swords formed around Coop, clashing against his claws, sharpening them and increasing his power. “Charge at em, Coop.” Coop ran towards the Walrein at great speed, destroying and dodging various ice balls of all different sizes. As the Zangoose closed in, the man called out for his Walrein to use Ice Fang. It was too late too dodge, the large seal had already clamped it’s jaws down on Coop’s left arm. “Coop here’s your chance! Use Close Combat!” Grimacing in pain Coop retracted his claws, and began to smash the Walrein's body with his right hand. No longer able to hold the grip on Coop’s arm the beast released it’s grip. This was a mistake, and probably a fatal(not really) one. With two free hands Coop began to pummel the Walrein repeatedly. Jimmy could tell the large pokemon was about to drop until the strange man recalled his pokemon sparing it from further unnecessary damage. Zangoose stood for a second perplexed but then trotted back to Jimmy.

“Great job kiddo.” The man had somehow ended up in front of Jimmy. “Here you go,” he handed Jimmy a map, a brochure, and a badge case. “By the way, shades are classified kiddo, sorry. But tell your parents I said hi, shame I can’t myself, I’ve got to jet.” Jimmy’s attention was at the brochure but at the mention of his parents his head sprung up. He was gone, this seemed odd but Jimmy returned his focus towards the brochure.

“So this is why the stores are cleaned, everybody has been preparing for this...” He laughed, Jimmy realized his trip to Kanto was more than postponed, it was over before it even began. The crappy part about this was that he had no idea where this thing was taking place... Wait, that man mentioned his parents, maybe they had a clue. They lived on the shore, and it wasn’t a far walk from where he was standing. Jimmy rubbed Coop’s furry head and they both headed towards the house that harbored love for them but was still so foreign.
-------------------------------------------------------

*Knock Knock*
The door flung open and behind it was a face similar to Jimmy’s, but with a genuine loving smile and long brown hair(Oh! And no facial hair.) “Hey, honey!” Coop immediately took off towards the kitchen giving both son and mother a puzzled look.

“It’s nice to see you, mom.” He smiled and gave her a warm hug, even though his parents were former Aqua and that drove Jimmy slightly crazy, he still loved them. They were his parents after all. “Where’s dad?”

“He’s out, but what brings you here? We both know you don’t visit just for the heck of it Jimmy.” He could spot her tone, mocking, but lovingly mocking.

“Well, you see...” And Jimmy explained the whole thing, the stranger with the cool shades, the mention of his mom and dad, and the stuff he was given(specifically the brochure.)

“I’m impressed Jimmy, you’ve been invited to quite the tournament, anyways... I can arrange a ride for you from an old friend of your dad and I. You’ll meet him in Slateport, tell him about us and you should arrive at Lethia by nightfall, if worse comes to worse, maybe tomorrow morning.”

“Lethia?” Jimmy titled his head in a confused look. He’d never heard of this region but it appears that his mother knew it like all the others. “How come I’ve never heard of it?”

His mother smiled at him, “Don’t ask questions dear. You know, it’s a shame you don’t visit more often. Judging us on our past isn’t very fair of you, Jimmy.”

“Mom, I’m over that Aqua stuff, it’s not important anymore. I’ll come visit after the tournament but I really should get going. Coop let’s go!” Both of them knew that was bull, Jimmy was still upset with the whole Team Aqua business. They had one more embrace and Jimmy left, Coop bolting out the house behind him.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Jimmy was about as ready as he could’ve been. Pokemon all in their balls, all healed up and no potions at all. Oh well, he would manage, he usually did. He was able to find some supplies from the Slateport Market that would serve him well. Some water bottles, berries, and whatever else he had already forgotten. “Let’s see... where would someone be if they were waiting to take me on a sea trip.” He chuckled, pretending not to know where to go. The building easily stood out, being the tallest in Slateport and right next to the sea. Jimmy went inside and instantly spotted a man drowning himself in a bottle of beer comfortably relaxing on a wooden chair. Next to him, Jimmy could spot the upper quarter of a dark blue submarine, hatch open and ready for passengers.

“Hey dude, are you my parents’ friend?” Jimmy walked over to him.

The man put down his beer turning his attention towards Jimmy. “Oh so you’re the kid! Hah, you do kind of look like your mother, cept for the beard..” He smiled, revealing gross yellow teeth and some gaps where Jimmy presumed other yellow teeth once filled. “Well what’re you waiting for kiddo, get in the sub!”

Jimmy was at a loss for words, he quickly stepped onto the sub, balancing himself so he wouldn’t end up taking a swim. “Nice, no stairs.” Jimmy jumped in and took a look around him. Wasn’t huge, but it wasn’t small either. A small couch was place at the end of the sub. How the couch got here Jimmy had no idea. In the front there was your standard controls system, the steering wheel and another wooden chair, except this one was attached to the sub and could spin! The man followed behind, landing with a loud thud. Smooth, Jimmy though. The man reached up and grabbed the hatch, slamming it shut and turning some valve to keep it shut.

“Might as well relax kid, couch is over there. This might take awhile and trust me, you’ll need the rest.” Unlike before, the man carried a serious tone to the last sentence. Apparently this tournament was going to be tough! What a surprise...

Jimmy decided he might as well listen, after all he was taking him to Lethia free of charge with no strings attached. He laid down on the couch, stretching and then closed his eyes in an attempt to get some rest.

Oh well that was lovely. It might seem apparent based on his hesitation that Kiba wasn't sure what to do either. Regardless, the two wound up on Arcanine's back, presumably figuring out that 'horse-riding position' was the only remotely safe way of doing this (Lest they go flying off mid-ride) ...She was okay with this, namely because it wasn't a long ride. Though, she found she had somehwat lost her land legs when the two slid off. Julia decidedly stayed with Flare for obvious reasons, occupying herself with examining Kiba's arcanine whilst she waited. She couldn't help but compare Flare to Entei, physically speaking. Though, their fire was a completely different style. You could braid Entei's hair or give him dreadlocks.

When Kiba emerged, Julia just sort of stared for a moment. Her expression was a combination of surprise and being impressed. Was that... a kimono? How did he know to wear something like that? After a moment, she decided he couldn't have known, unless...

"Where did you say you were from again?~"

She was flirting ever so slightly with her tone.

Spirit gave a small laugh. Love snow huh? Me too. Then again, I was a Froslass.

~

"Where did you say you were from again?~"

She had used a tone Kiba had never heard before, but something about it seemed to show that she was sparking interest for him. "Oh, I'm from the noble town, Lavender, Kanto." He seemed satisfied to come from a 'noble town'. Though his speech wasn't over. "My parents both used to run the Pokemon Tower, so we had plenty of haunting as the ghosts would follow them home. Of course, they never payed any attention to me. I left to start my journey, shortly after they took down the Pokemon Tower and built a Radio Tower."

"There was sort of a terrible incident after they destroyed the tower..." He sort of trailed off for a moment. "Anyways, I left. With Flare. He was only a Growlithe pup at the time. I went all around the various regions, battled in all of the championships. No one took me seriously because I didn't use all six Pokemon like everyone else would, but I still won. I think they underestimated me. Anyways, I just got back from Unova before I came here." He watched the distant tent. It was coming closer, somewhat slowly.

It was as if he could feel the question burning Julia up from the inside. "I didn't come here for this contest, I more so came just to explore the new region, maybe make some friends, find some old friends. I came here with just Flare and Mello, that Meloetta that was asleep on me in the tent. Oh, and an egg that became Spirit, the Misdreavius. She used to be my Froslass, so I guess the name was sort of Ironic." He laughed lightly. "I guess Ki found me while we were in that battle not long ago." For some reason, remembering the battle also reminded him of his wounds, causing a bit of a pained expression.

"On top of that, I never use money. I've earned food by working shortly for it, or simply by being kind to people. You'd be surprised how much that helps. Otherwise I find berries and plants in the wild. I still have a lot of them in my bag." He paused for a moment, as if catching his own error. "I-I'm sorry. I'm rambling."

Serenade Hawthorne

"Finally."

Serenade plopped down where she was standing and shuffled through her bag. She pulled out some berries for everyone, and laid them out for everyone to choose from. All her Pokemon were pretty good about sharing. She wanted to make sure everyone was full and happy before she put them back in their balls and entered Heroes loft.

Rise gave her an pleased look. Serenade was good at reading the expressions on all of her team's faces, especially his. Serenade sighed, and looked at the rest of her Pokemon. They all seemed pretty content the way they were, just getting a chance to relax.

Serenade threw her arms up into the air and fell back on to the grass, sighing. She'd been here only for a few days, and she was already exhausted. Everything had happened so fast. She'd gotten into that battle with that crazy recruiter, and bam, here she was in Lethia. The only trainer she had encountered so far was an easy match; a kid slightly younger than her, that only had a Furret and a Houndoom to protect himself. He seemed like a genuinely good person who deserved a shot at the prize too, so rather than taking all three of his badge pieces, she just took one.

Other than that, she hadn't really encountered people aside from a few vendors. And the vendors seemed pretty rude, so she didn't really count that as human interaction. The mountain vendor though had seemed pretty decent, and he was the one who pointed Serenade in this direction, to the Heroes Loft.

Serenade couldn't wait to get a full nights sleep. Seeing as she was traveling alone, she had to keep Rise or Navi up to keep watch whenever she needed to rest. And it just seemed unfair to her, so for the small amount of nights that she'd been in Lethia, she'd just take short naps most of the time. Besides, everyone needed a chance to rest and prepare for the many more difficulties to come.

Actually, now that she thought about it, she wasn't too sure how she had traveled so far without any companions. Other than that first battle, she hadn't really ran into anyone else, which must have been pure chance. Serenade figured that since a lot of trainers were in the challenge, she'd run into a lot of them.

Rise put his paw on Serenade's stomach, breaking her free from her thoughts. He looked at her with his eyes narrowed, and gestured to the entrance that was about a hundred feet away.

Serenade stuffed the leftovers back into the bag, and returned all of her Pokemon, except Rise. She adjusted herself, and made her way into the Heroes Loft.
Outside of the Pokemon world, my interests include:

Echo smiled at Spirit as the ghost laughed and she nodded her head, "Uh huh! I really do! I am an ice type after all!" She smiled fondly at the memory and ate some more berries. "Well, I've told you some stuff about me. Tell me about you! How was your life as a Froslass? How did you meet Kiba? Do you have certain pranks you like to pull on people?" She asked eagerly as she just looked into her eyes and smiled at her. It had been so long since she had been on a date, but she thought it was going well. No interruptions, no mistakes, no wrong wordings. It was just perfect! And that was what Echo strived for with this. Perfection!

Jimmy suddenly woke up. The sub was being thrashed about by something, something big. His body was flung off the couch and he came crashing down hard on the cold metal floor. “What th-” The sub turned and Jimmy was sent rolling until he smashed into the wall. He groaned, rubbed his head and slowly got to his feet only to be thrown back against the same wall as before.

“You’re kidding me right, what’s going on?!” Slowly and carefully, Jimmy edged his way across the sub, keeping his back against the wall. He hoped that there wouldn’t be any right turns.

The helmsman kept his focus steady but for a second he quickly glanced at Jimmy, flashing a smile. “Don’t worry about it kiddo, just a herd of Wailords. Be grateful they didn’t eat us.” He paused and began to laugh rather loudly. “Woo! That was a close one wasn’t it.”

Jimmy couldn’t help but smile. Soon enough that smile turned to laughter. “Definitely. How long until we get to Lethia?” Jimmy had no idea how long he’d been out or what time of day it was and he was itching to get to the tournament. Something about it just intrigued him and for the first time in years he was excited for something. The old man sighed, “Not sure, bu-”

Jimmy rudely interrupted, “Do you even know where Lethia is?”

“Of course. This isn’t my first time kid, but it certainly is my last...”

Jimmy raised an eyebrow. “You’ve been there before?”

“Yep, Aqua business. Long time time ago, something you wouldn’t understand.” Like that the atmosphere went from normal to tense. This guy definitely knew how to push Jimmy’s buttons. Jimmy decided to leave it alone, there was no point in pursing this conversation any longer. He retired to the couch and rubbed his back, which was sore from the thrashing he had received earlier.

Hours passed and Jimmy was slipping in and out of reality, attempting to stay awake. “HEY, we're here kid.” The initial “hey” was so loud someone could probably hear it outside the sub. Jimmy yawned and stretched his arms. “Really?” The excitement in his voice was obvious. The man got up from his seat and walked over to the hatch. He spun the valve, opening the hatch and motioned for Jimmy to see for himself. Jimmy sprung up from his seat and jogged over. He plopped himself out of the sub enough to get a good look. He saw the island, he definitely saw it, except that it was at least five hundred yards away. He hopped back in, “You have got to be joking.”

“Nope, I’m gonna teach you a lesson. For so rudely interrupting me earlier, you’re going to have to swim the rest of the way.” The old man smirked and then gave Jimmy a serious look, “and don’t even think about flying or I’ll blast you and your pokemon right out of the sky.”

Jimmy could tell he wasn’t bluffing, he was dead serious. “Alright, alright... But at least me let change. I’d prefer not to get this wet.” Jimmy gestured to his current outfit.

“Go ahead, just hurry up.” The old man walked over to a wall opposite of Jimmy and pressed his head against it. Jimmy nodded, quickly changing only into a new pair of shorts he had bought from the Slateport Market. He stuffed his other clothes into his bag which was conveniently water proof. Well, it was suppose to be, the thing was about four years old, who knew if it still worked or not. Ready to go, Jimmy pulled himself out of the sub and nudged over to it’s edge. His feet flirting with the water below, he took a good look at the piece of land in front of him. “So this is Lethia..” Jimmy was surprised to say the least, all he saw was mountains and more mountains. He hoped this was just due to the side they had arrived at and that there was more than just rocky terrain.

Jimmy stood up, he was about to dive but then he hesitated. Jimmy wasn’t a superb swimmer but he had done his fair share of swimming before, when he didn’t have Annie to fly him around. As he thought of his Altaria, the thought of flying to the island came to him but then he remembered the warning he had received. He wasn’t going to risk it. Jimmy took one deep breath and dived in. Once his bare skin came in touch with the cold ocean water it initially shocked him. He focused himself, shook it off and rose towards the surface. He heard the hatch slam shut behind him, there was no turning back now. He looked up towards the sky trying to guess the time of day. He had to hurry before it got too dark but Jimmy knew he would have to pace himself if he even had a chance to getting close. He gave himself a faint smile as if to reassure himself and started to kick.

Julia glanced at Flare. He had only come here with two pokemon? Well geez! She suddenly felt privileged, having an entire team consisting of at least one legendary pokemon on her. This only occupied her thoughts for moments though, as she had more interesting things to be focused on. Namely, Kiba had just expressed that he was from Kanto, namely Lavender Town. Lavender Town was famous for it's ghosts among tourists, though she honestly... didn't get that. Freaking tourists

"It's alright. I /thought/ you might be from Kanto! I'm from Maiden's Peak!"

She paused a moment in thought.

"We had some ghosts up there too..."

She shrugged it off, though the way she had said it had been quite vague.

"So... you won a championship...s with one pokemon and you say your misdreavous was a froslass?"

She sounded slightly skeptical, as if to ask him if he was serious. The idea seemed kind of silly to her. Pokemon didn't change races! Hah! And they almost certainly didn't reincarnate! Of course, she honestly had no idea how wrong she was. She wasn't a pokemon expert! That's reserved for confused old men. In addition, how did one win a championship with only one pokemon? As an expert on teamwork this baffled her. A proper team should've walked circles around even the most powerful pokemon sent out alone. Even legendary pokemon could and would be overwhelmed by teamwork. She'd seen that first hand. That either made Flare hilariously powerful or Kiba's opponents incompetent... perhaps a mixture of both.

She had resisted the urge to ask if Kiba was vegetarian. She somehow got the impression he was.

Spirit pondedred the thought for a moment. Well, I used to love freezing the ground under people as they walked, but I'm not sure if I still have any ice powers or not.

"It's alright. I thought you might be from Kanto! I'm from Maiden's Peak!"

Maiden's... Peak? He had heard of it, and knew that it was in Kanto, though it's exact whereabouts were unknown to him. So she was also from Kanto.

"We had some ghosts up there too..."

How... Detailed. With that much information he could write a book about it!

"So... you won a championship...s with one pokemon and you say your misdreavous was a froslass?"

"I fought with whichever Pokemon were with me at the time, but every championship I've gone to has been one on one, usually up to six pokemon limit, though I never used all six." He paused for a moment. How many Pokemon have I used in one championship before...? He snapped himself back into reality. "I think the most I've used in one tournament was... Three different Pokemon. Of course, that was the one we had lost..." He seemed to be speaking his thoughts aloud. "But when we went back we won... All of the others... I think Only one or two per fight." He just sort of shrugged to himself. "I think the fact that I used less of a team made them sure that they would win. That's always somewhat of a major downfall in their defenses."

He realized that once more he was rambling, without even answering her question. "Spirit used to be my Froslass, yes. It's ironic now, but that was her name. I never named any of them, I let them us their own names." Pretty much expecting confusion from Julia, he continued, "Ki can translate for me, so that I didn't give them a name when they already had their own. Uh, let me think..." He seemed to go over things aloud in his head. "Kanto League, Flare was the only one to battle. Johto League, Ki and Flare. Sinnoh League was Mello, Flare and Spirit. Then Hoenn was just Ki. Unova was Flare and Ki... And a few others that weren't worth mentioning. There were smaller Leagues I went to, but they weren't anything like the real ones."

Flare barked, notifying them that they had arrived at the show. Kiba carefully climbed off (nearly toppling over, still having issues walking), before helping Julia down. Flare sort of just padded inside and sat beside Jev, Mello and Aviath. Kiba smiled slightly toward Julia. "We could find a seat, and keep talking...?"

Jack saw that Kiba and Julia had finally arrived, and they were talking! He chuckled to himself as he turned around and just watched the stage for any movement. He didn't want to interrupt their moment anyway. The rest of their pokemon were here as well and if his wanted to partake in conversation, then so be it. Alpha stayed seated as he glanced over for a bit and idly wondered how Spirit and Echo's date was going. Delta just hung in the air with his typical happy look on his face. Bravo had her arms crossed as she grew irritated that the play hadn't started yet and Foxtrot was all too happy to be here and not playing waiter to the lovebirds. Lilith just sort of lay her head in Jack's lap as she looked at the stage, wondering just what this play would be about.

Echo smiled, "Well, you cold always try and see if you have any left. Just maybe try an ice beam or something over there." She said as she pointed at some grass. She leaned forward in her seat and giggled a bit, "It will be fun to see if you do have any."

[hr]"Now, now, will the audience please sit behind the yellow line; we have no chairs, so you will need to provide your own seats. You may use Pokémon to provide some height, however you will need to prepare them in the back or part way from the back. We will begin the show soon enough. Any league officers need to follow the same rules, biggest in the back while the smallest sits near the front and leave some space for the humans." Jev dragged the bed containing Avaith and Mello. He then took the time to prop them up gently and face them towards the stage when he got them as close as he could. Shadoan sat on the ground, crossing his legs, leaving some space for Jack as Ulla perched himself on his shoulder while Light and Stella sat side by side. Light feeling a little uncomfortable as Stella cuddled up alongside him. Irek perched himself upon Shadoan's head. Irek laughed a little as he sat back and relaxed. Shadoan looked over aside to see Kiba and Julia joining as the lights dimmed and the show begins.

Spring Origin - Star fall
The lights within the room dimmed as specs of light floated above the crowds head. At the center of the stage, a large body of water rises and forms, hovering over as it drips down beneath the audience, the water sand below the ground level of the audience, still visible as it waved beneath to simulate an ocean. A red Exploud stood in front of the audience and he began to speak. "Long ago, before the need of trainers and Pokémon alike, a war was raged across the land. Over food, water, supplies, weapons. From here in was a never ending conflict battle that spread. It isn't long until the sky started to fall. From the starry skies meteorites fell, containing the building blocks to create the first forms of life. Several had fallen across the land; one everyone must know about is the meteorite in Mount Moon where your evolutionary moon stones originate from." A large red and fire blazing bolder was emerging from the darkness overhead as it fell slowly and collided with the water, splashing the audience near the front. Where Jev shook the water off from his face as Avaith chuckled a little, the red burning stone produced steam as it hit the floating body of water, creating an eerie mist. "Another meteorite that fell far sought from Kanto held different properties, for that it was here that this stone began to form as an island, a land, which started taking form. This land is later discovered by its first settlers, seeking refugee and looking to begin life anew."On the stage as the mist settled, a boat began to float in; carrying a several humans as the boat slowly collided with the cooled stone. Each over of them stepped out from their vessel and walked over the rugged boulder. "As they began to explore their new-found home, they soon discovered its dangers; The Leviathans." From the bodies of water, a few Draonairs in different colors wearing large masks appeared, surrounding the settlers upon the large stone. "From here, the settlers fought the Leviathans, with wood, steal, stone. The great beasts did not succumb to each attack as their war continued on." As the dragonairs closed in, bashing their heads and breathing flames of the dragon rage attack amongst their opponents, they began to knock 3 of the settlers over as the rest stood their ground, using spears and shields, stepping forth and fighting back as they attempted to stay on solid ground. "As their battle continued, there was a moment of peace, looking upon the land they stood on, an ambassador or leader from each group approached the one another, seeking a non-violent solution, a way they could continue to live in harmony without bloodshed." The fighting between humans and Pokémon was brought to a standstill as a black Gyrados rose from the side of the stage, wearing a larger mask similar to the ones the dragonairs were wearing as a settler wearing a red scarf approached the black Gyrados. Stone columns even begin to rise. "The beast of legend to this region, Grimor spoke for the rest of the beasts as the first human approached, asking for peace." The black Gyrados roared over the audience as the dragonairs fled from the stage back into the water, only to vanish from the crowd’s sight. "Grimor accepted this peace and spread its influence throughout this new region of life, bringing an end to their pointless conflict. Though the fighting was brought to an end, it was not without its price. Folk from around the world had heard of the Leviathans and approached the newfound region in hopes of enslaving them, for profit, for study... and for amusement... Unable to cope with the overwhelming presence, the remaining beasts dive themselves deep into the earth and continue to thrive underneath, the region itself... In order to honor the memory of the leviathans that had left, the origional settelers named this region Lethia." The stone with the settlers atop sunk to the stage as the water dissipated from its floating form and ran across the grass, drying out quickly as the Pokémon, and actors came out and gave a simple bow. "That concludes Spring Origin - Star fall. The next play in this 3 part story is summer’s Soul - Earth Rise, The first Earth and Sky tournament."
-Heroes Loft-
Upon arrival, the various vendors were selling their wares as a few trainers were entering the hotel to reserve their rooms. The job vendor called out to Serenade. “Hey! Lass! Looking for work? There are a few people out here in Lethia looking to pay in badge components if you can help them with their troubles! There’s a few left if you’re interested!”

-Outer Rim of Lethia – Ocean-
As Jimmy swam, he was tossed a preserver. Looking up, was an old man in a sea admiral hat and tattered captains coat was looking down below at Jimmy. “If you’re here for Earth and Sky, that wouldn’t be my choice of getting to Lethia...” He chuckled as he started walking back a little. “If you’re looking to get to the mainland, climb the rope on the preserver… Before the green exile begins his attack… again.”

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Julia simply glanced at Kiba in a mildly skeptical manner in his response to winning all these tournaments. How could someone so disinterested in battling propose that she believe he could be the world's best trainer? Was... he trying to impress her? She decidedly wasn't sure /what/ to think and simply dropped the subject. It wasn't all that important anyway, ...right? What was ironic about Spirit's name? It honestly kind of flew over her head. He discussed the pokemon he had used throughout his journies and one thing in particular stuck out to her. Had... he just insulted those other pokemon? They... weren't worth mentioning? That honestly didn't seem like something she would've expected Kiba to say, and so she found herself wondering why. Why weren't they worth mentioning?

...And yet she couldn't bring herself to ask.

As the two dismounted Flare and began to enter the area o the upcoming performance she spoke up, seemingly having been in silent thought up until then.

"I've never been in a tournament before now. We... um... didn't last long enough to join a tournament before this happened."

She shrugged it off.

"I got most of my team just before I came here--MacGyver is actually from Maiden's Peak. Gotta wonder if he used to play pranks on the villagers!~"

...The way she said it almost seemed to imply she didn't know what MacGyver did before being caught, which was perhaps slightly strange if one didn't know she hadn't been the one to catch him.

"--Let's squeeze in over there!"

She abruptly pointed outwards, before leading Kiba over to a spot fairly close to the front. To those watching, they may notice she was content to hold his hand, or perhaps to have hers held by him.

"What do you think this is all abou--"

Julia was interrupted by a loud voice. The show was starting. It was... a story. The story quickly became strange to Julia? War between Pokemon and humans? Now that didn't make sense! Psh! Whaaaaat? No way. Disregarding her immediate lack of a suspension of disbelief she found herself somewhat interested. Whom had written this story and how had they come up with it? Was this folklore or fiction? Perhaps she could ask Chester later. He seemed to be quite the informed fellow. After the play had ended Julia was honestly surprised at how brief it had been. Huh! They certainly made a big deal out of this story. This inclined her to believe it was more folklore than fiction. That'd have to be some really dang good fanfiction yo! She still had a hard time considering the plausibility of it, though. I mean... how in the world could humans stand up to Pokemon, let alone ancient humans? She was pretty sure an army of /ratatta/ could demolish humanity if it tried, let alone some of the more terrifying specie out there.

...Her mind drifted to Lumine. She immediately forced her thoughts away. That wasn't the world she lived in, and she refused to believe /her/ pokemon would ever murder helpless innocents. Well, at least, any of them except Entei. She didn't necessarily trust him not to try if threatened enough, namely because well.. he'd tried to destroy /them/ in the process of catching him!

Julia glanced over at Kiba and gave his hand a light squeeze.

"Soooo... what'd you think?"

Spirit sort of just shrugged (if that were really possible) and watched a certain patch of grass... For about a full minute. Slowly, she began to focus, and... PEW~! It was no Ice Beam, but she had somehow managed to fire a decent number of icy shards at that poor patch of grass. I.... I still need practice, but I can do it!

"I've never been in a tournament before now. We... um... didn't last long enough to join a tournament before this happened. I got most of my team just before I came here--MacGyver is actually from Maiden's Peak. Gotta wonder if he used to play pranks on the villagers!~" And, as he was about to speak, she continued, practically dragging him Marriage, amiright? over to a seat. "--Let's squeeze in over there! What do you think this is all abou--" And it began.

Kiba had been... Rather absorbed into the play. Understanding glittered in his multi-colorful eyes, as if he were watching it from the eyes of the Leviathans. Only Julia's slight hand squeeze snapped him back into reality. She began to ask, "Soooo... what'd you think?"

"That was... Amazing, informative... I felt like I was there. That was wonderful... I can't wait to see the next part." He smiled at her. "I think it makes an entertaining first date." He was distracted for a moment. "Where are my friends..." He glanced around. Flare was off to the side, seemingly soaked from the water splash, and just plain unhappy. Mello was over with Aviath and Jev, seeming to be seated comfortably. Ki was... Kiba closed his eyes. Where are you... I just have to sense... "There you are!" Kiba had pointed at a seemingly pitch black spot, up near the ceiling, though after a few moments, the Lucario's red and purple eyes opened, glowing in the dark with a slight nod. He glanced around. "And Spirit is... Still behind that tent with Echo. They missed the play..."

He suddenly turned his attention back to Julia. "I enjoyed the play. Learning about this area's history seems like the sort of interesting adventure I was looking for here. After this show ends, we could hang out, it looks like it'll be pretty late, and that's the best part of the night." He glanced at the entrance for a moment. "I'm sure Ki is expecting me to get back into training..."

~

Mello created a weak psychic shield, blocking the splashes that neared her and Aviath, though purposefully leaving an opening for Jev. This was amusing to her, and she giggled slightly at his "misfortune". She pressed herself closer to Aviath as she they watched the show.

Jimmy was swimming for how long? He had no clue, all he knew was that it felt like an eternity since his ride ditched him earlier. But it honestly wasn't as bad as he had thought it would be. At this point the water’s temperature was no longer a bother to him. It felt relaxing, swimming in the vast ocean, almost peaceful. In fact, Jimmy would’ve probably considered this fun if not for the current circumstances. He began to ponder how he would fare when he got to Lethia. Okay, so the swim would definitely leave him exhausted and from first glance he hadn't noticed any buildings in sight, he imagined how far he would have to walk to find a hotel or something. Seemed pretty promising, didn't it? Lost in his own thoughts, Jimmy failed to hear the splashing noise that had just occurred in front of him. Suddenly one of his outstretched arms had knocked into something, looking up he noticed a life preserver had been thrown to him.

“How convenient.” Jimmy grinned, help had arrived. Some good luck had come his way after a not so lucky situation earlier. He followed the direction of the preserver’s rope with his eyes, curious to who his savior was. The outfit gave it away from the spot, the hat was one only a captain of the sea would wear, the coat the same. This old man was a sailor and hopefully, a damn good one. The coat was obviously worn out, revealing that either this man had dedicated most of his life to the seas or just bought some sort of cheap captain’s apparel to look the part.

“If you’re here for Earth and Sky, that wouldn’t be my choice of getting to Lethia...” The old captain chuckled at Jimmy. Jimmy decided he was legit. Being polite, he returned his own chuckle to the old man. He wasn’t necessarily forcing it, in fact he found the situation relatively humorous. He must’ve looked like a clown, swimming his way to Lethia. Most of the other participants probably took a boat, ship or some other method to get to the tournament, much more conventional methods compared to this. Well, at least he had a new ride, this was probably the best Jimmy could’ve possibly hoped for.

“If you’re looking to get to the mainland, climb the rope on the preserver… Before the green exile begins his attack… again.” As the captain spoke, Jimmy was already tugging his way towards the boat. He tossed the preserver back on board, before climbing on board himself. The weight of his soaked shorts surprised Jimmy, derailing his first attempts at boarding the boat. Jimmy began to contemplate what the old sea captain had just said. Something about an exile attacking? Well, Jimmy guessed every tournament wasn’t complete without it’s own set of problems. Especially one like the Earth and Sky. It sort of intrigued Jimmy, the way the captain spoke of the exile, he seemed to be an extremely dangerous man. And seeing as how "lucky" this day had been so far, Jimmy was probably going to get a taste of how dangerous this guy actually was.

For some reason, Jimmy felt like he was forgetting something. Right, his bag, he immediately reached behind him to check it, perfectly dry, Jimmy sighed in relief. If his clothes or stuff got wet, oh man that would’ve been terrible. Finally, Jimmy walked over to the old captain, with a somewhat curious look on his face, he extended his hand out towards him. “Thanks for picking me up, sir. Uh, if you don’t mind me asking, what do you mean by the green exile attacking?” As he finished speaking, a large gust of wind flew in behind the capt. It pressed Jimmy's cold, wet hair against his forehead and dried his body, leaving an odd, cold lingering feeling causing him to shiver.

“Hey! Lass! Looking for work? There are a few people out here in Lethia looking to pay in badge components if you can help them with their troubles! There’s a few left if you’re interested!” Serenade smiled as soon as she heard that. She was exited to actually start doing something other than wandering around aimlessly.

"Yeah!" Serenade replied, and walked over to the vendor. "Whatcha got left?"

"The green exile I speak of was suppose to be cast out of Lethia for murdering several trainers, pokemon and causing casualties that rival any villainous organization on the planet... The leagues task force recently cast him off the island to be caught and placed back into prison." A large explosion was seen over the sea as the boy in green that attacked Heroes loft slowly approached the mainland from the distance. His eyes with what seemed to be a murderous glow as he slowly approached Lethia. "However, he's no threat on his attempts towards reaching here, though he keeps my hands tied." The sea captain raises his hand as his old battle worn laprus rises from the deep, casting ice beam,, creating an ice spire that forced the green trainer back as his meganium peered its ugly head from the water to let out a few seed bombs. The laprus countered with swift, striking the Meganium, forcing the exile further from the island. "... If your new to Lethia, take note, exiles are Earth and Skies previous elites. They cycle out every few years to live peaceful lives... Or murderous ones... I myself am an exile and spend the rest of my days protecting trainers on their safe passage to the mainland." He walks back towards the rear of his boat and into the superstructure and comes back with a towel for Jimmy and gives it to him. "Opening ceremonies were the first of spring, however since your here, Ill rely the rules to you like everyone else."

The captain then reaches into his pockets and gives him a folded up map. "The first rule is you cannot conduct your survivalist battles for your badge within designated towns, irregardless if your on or off Lethia, the fighting in this league is brutal and we do not need any casualties or authorities interfering. You will be banned from the league if this rule is broken... The second rule is to never kill another for the sake of obtaining your badge, this rule as well leads towards banishment and you will be reported to the authorities, even if we have to carry you there ourselves... Rule three is the theft of badge components is not entirely acceptable, there is no punishment for this, but if you want to survive your battles with the elites, see that you work hard to earn each piece to the letter... The forth and final rule..." The captain pauses a moment the take a deep breathe in and sigh. "Is to survive, by any means possible... Lethia is full of dangers, territorial pokemon and weather beyond prediction, be sure you can survive the trials ahead..." He pauses another moment to chuckle as he walks towards the superstructure and walks back out with a wrapped package. "Eat up, You'll want a full stomach when your feet hit the main land. My final notes that you need to keep in mind is if you have a phone, radio or internet device for entertainment, get the most you can before 8. There is only one radio tower that connects Lethia to the world, the workers all head home in the evening, so do what you want or need too before then. All GPS devices in Lethia are useless, so use that map to the best of your ability and pick-up a book on survival when we get to the town from the mart to at least know the plants here, see whats safe for both you and your pokemon to eat. The rest, you'll learn when you arrive." The captain once more entered the super structure and switched the engine on, moving it towards the mainland, Lethia.

-Heroes Loft-

"This is all I have left miss. Interested in any?" The vendor provides her with a chained binder, bolted to his booth as he hands it to her.

Shadoan was looking up at Irek. "That was kind of...short...informative, but short." Irek was grinding his teeth a little. "They left out a lot... They use to have the star illusions fall into your pa-....ahem, hands... and the announcer was sort of new, it use to be just plainly a musical experience with actors, they would then proclaim what had happened after the play that they would tell everything... The only thing they got right was the water." Shadoan sighed and looked up as Irek hopped down from his head into his lap. "There was a war before, but it was before the discovery of the first pokemon and far before the invention of the first few poke balls..." Shadoan held up his hand to have him stop. "When we finish the job and begin our journey through the mountains again, you can tell the rest when were cooking dinner."

The green exile was more dangerous than he thought, murdering trainers and pokemon? What would drive somebody to commit such violent acts? Apparently, he had been recently captured, but since the captain warned him about the exile, that must have meant that he would be able to escape confinement almost effortlessly. From the corner of his eye, Jimmy noticed a huge explosion. Looking over, he saw a boy dressed head to toe in green making his way towards Lethia, riding on some sort of pokemon. “So that’s the green exile...” Jimmy reached for one of his pokeballs, he was about to do something reckless.

The captain stopped him, “However, he’s no threat on his attempts towards here, though he keeps my hands tied.” An old, battle-scarred Lapras emerged and launched an ice beam towards the exile, delaying his advances. The exile’s pokemon revealed it’s head, a Meganium, Jimmy was unaware it’s species were able to surf. It’s eyes were fierce and ugly, it didn’t look like your average Meganium. It fired back, tiny seeds flew towards the ships direction. The Lapras countered the attack and landed a hit on the exile’s pokemon, forcing them to momentarily retreat from their path. The captain looked back at Jimmy, "... If your new to Lethia, take note, exiles are Earth and Skies' previous elites. They cycle out every few years to live peaceful lives... Or murderous ones... I myself am an exile and spend the rest of my days protecting trainers on their safe passage to the mainland." He walked away. So some exiles were good and some were bad. Jimmy was glad to get that clear, the first exile didn’t necessarily make a great impression for all the others. Surprise, surprise, so the captain was also an exile, Jimmy wondered if helping trainers get to Lethia was actually the captain’s job, or just something he did for his own reasons.

The old captain returned, handing Jimmy a towel. “Thanks!” He began to dry himself, furiously rubbing his hair, leaving it a mess as usual. The captain mentioned something about rules and placed a folded map into Jimmy’s free hand.

"The first rule is you cannot conduct your survivalist battles for your badge within designated towns, irregardless if you’re on or off Lethia, the fighting in this league is brutal and we do not need any casualties or authorities interfering. You will be banned from the league if this rule is broken... The second rule is to never kill another for the sake of obtaining your badge, this rule as well leads towards banishment and you will be reported to the authorities, even if we have to carry you there ourselves... Rule three is the theft of badge components is not entirely acceptable, there is no punishment for this, but if you want to survive your battles with the elites, see that you work hard to earn each piece to the letter... The fourth and final rule..." The captain paused and took a moment to take a deep breathe in and sigh. "Is to survive, by any means possible... Lethia is full of dangers, territorial pokemon and weather beyond prediction, be sure you can survive the trials ahead..." The captain chuckled and left once more.

The rules seemed pretty straightforward. Don’t battle in towns, don’t kill people, stealing is legal but it’ll screw you in the long run, and don’t die. It seemed simple enough on paper, but then again, most things look easy on paper. Jimmy took a moment to soak it all in, hopefully he wouldn’t forget anything too important, too bad all of it was equally important. Once again, the captain came back, this time with some sort of package. He handed it to Jimmy, “Eat up.” Jimmy’s stomach growled, he realized he hadn’t eaten the whole day. He was so concerned with buying supplies for his original plans and the tournament that food hadn’t crossed his mind at all. If the old captain was trying to make up for the other exile's first impression, he was doing a hell of a job. He unwrapped the package, Jimmy wasn’t quite sure what the hell it was, but at least it was food, he gladly ate it. As he was chewing, the captain mentioned something about electronics and seeing as Jimmy didn’t own any, he didn’t bother to listen. Then, the captain mentioned something about a survival booklet and to get it from the town’s mart when they arrived. “Right,” Jimmy mentally wrote it down as he finished his meal. For the third time, the captain left, this time the ship began to move, and it was heading towards Lethia. Feeling the rush of the air, Jimmy walked over to the side of the superstructure, hidden out of view. “Well since I’m not swimming any time soon...” He took off his bag, grabbed his regular clothes and changed into them before walking back out onto the deck. Lethia was getting closer with every second.

"This is all I have left miss. Interested in any?" The vendor provides here with a chained binder, bolted to his booth as he hands it to her.


Quote:
  • I need materials: I require materials that Pokemon produce in order to create various survival items. I need some silk webbing from a Spinarak, discarded baby pokemon egg shells and any empty Metapod cocoons, nothing alive in them. [Reward:2 badge components]
  • Bounty: To any trainers, if you come across any other groups belonging to team rocket and defeat them, return with their hats or an article of clothing. The security will pay for each item turned in from money to badge pieces. [Reward: 100 - 1 badge piece]
  • Constructing Culture: I am a contractor and developer that wants to expand human population in Lethia to attract tourism and raise business for the local town. To do this, I want to setup a second town or settlement in Lethia. However I need body guards, protection mostly from Lethia's hostile pokemon and the dangers on the island itself. I am willing to pay any trainer or trainers handsomely for their assistance for the week while I and my team prepare an area for defenses and construction. [Reward: 100000x per day!] {Still up for grabs, 3 days remaining before the week is finished]
  • Mountain Herbs: I need some herbs in the mountain region to create some home brewed potions. Will be willing to pay for each herb brought to me.[Reward:500 x per herb]
  • Entertainment!: We are looking for a trainer to where they and their pokemon can act as waiters or waitresses for the hotel located in Heroes Loft. It is only until the security grid is installed. [Reward: 1x Travel Voucher, 1000x per day.]
Serenade skimmed over the list. I did just spend a lot of money.. And being a bodyguard is easy enough. "I'm interested in the constructing culture job. How far away is it? I want to make sure I can make it on time." And then, almost as an afterthought, she added, "And I'm also interested in the bounty."
Outside of the Pokemon world, my interests include:

Drawing[http://hatehatersmadly.deviantart.com/], and... Reading/watching a ton of Fairy Tail.

Echo giggled and tapped her claws together. "That's awesome!" She said happily. "Yeah! You can practice and then it will be even more awesome! You'll be firing ice beams in no time!"

Jack and the others had finished watching the show and Jack was impressed by it. It was more of a history lesson but still, rather informative. Bravo had actually fallen asleep and was snoring rather loudly as she sat there, the others at least seemed interested by it. Jack got up as it ended and returned the slumbering Banette to her pokeball. His pokemon followed after him and once they got out they quickly scattered, doing their own things once more. Jack just made his way back to his tent. It seemed like Kiba and Julia were doing well, so that was always good. He wondered how Echo was doing. She wasn't at the event so she obviously had something important to do.

He remembered when the Sneasel wouldn't let any of the others so much as touch her and now she was acting much more social. Maybe this whole trip hadn't been too bad.

(Sam? LightningShy? For the record the main group is currently undergoing the "Constructing Culture" job.)

Julia Blackwood - Heroes' Loft
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Julia just sort of gave Kiba a somewhat skeptical look before coming to accept that... maybe they hadn't seen the play the same way.

"Informative--...You don't believe all of that, do you? A war between pokemon and humans?"

She seemed to find the idea a tad ridiculous, or at least very hard to believe. Given, Kanto was not necessarily a wealth of pokemon history. As far as she knew, humans were pretty bad at this fighting thing in comparison to Pokemon. She got up and brushed herself off, making sure her clothes weren't disheveled before glancing around at the two's surroundings.

"Anyway--Don't forget we've got a job to be doing. I can't be relying on you guys to save my butt when it comes time for the final parts of the tournament~"

She winked at him in a flirtatious manner and turned her back, still keeping his hand held within her own. Now... why would she turn her back on him like that? One would have to wonder, since it certainly wasn't standard procedure to turn your back on someone while you were talking. If she were a cat this might be a bad thing. However, one could be fairly sure she was not. CONSPIRACY Perhaps she wanted to leave, or perhaps was this simply more flirting? It was up to Kiba to decipher her body language. Her tone didn't sound impatient anyway, and she didn't make a move to tug Kiba along. IT'S A TRAP! IT'S A TRICK QUESTION! WOMEN MAKE NO SENSE! ABORT MISSION! RUN! RUUUUN!
