Mary's eyes lit up like the sun at the sight of Reanne's war bonnet. Her chest tightened with anticipation and a soft little gasp escaped her as she took a deep breathe at the sight. Oh. My. Freaking. Arceus. ...She was working with so much more hair than she originally anticipated! And it was braided! She was going to get to braid that back up~! "No way... Your hair is wonderful, Reanne~!" Mary chirped rather affectionately before beginning to set to work on it. Thankfully, Reanne's trust paid off. Mary had a gentle and purposeful touch, always very aware of any knots she came across and never tugging all that hard when she encountered them. It seemed like she took special care to treat Reanne's hair with as much love as she treated her own. It was likely that it would take her quite a bit of time to finish, but she worked diligently without complaint.

Nearby, Rose was not sure whether to pity Reanne or continue being jealous of her. One of the benefits of having shorter hair was that she didn't often have to deal with... that. Yet, it seemed like they were both enjoying themselves. --Nope, wait. There it was. Jealousy. Yeah, definitely jealousy. She quietly took a moment to try and snuff that emotional wildfire out. She had to stop thinking that way; it wasn't proper, and it was going to start hurting if she let those feelings run wild.



Mary popped her head out from behind Reanne to address the conversation going on with a smile that didn't at all reflect any of the hardship they'd been through. "My name's Mary, and this is my sister Rose! We're from Unova." she explained, drawing Rose back from her thoughts. Her gaze drifted to Nathaniel in particular. She was trying to read his aura to get a read on him. However, once again she didn't find what she was looking for. This time, that was probably a good thing. "Let's let our Pokemon do all of the fighting between us. We're not going to be able to rely on any sportsmanship from the land itself, so better enjoy it while it's not in short supply." she thoughtfully chimed in in agreement. I mean, if all the death on arrival hadn't made that clear she wasn't sure what would. "Like my sister Mary said, my name's Rose. Rose Maple. Nice to meet you guys too!" Rose introduced, her gaze shifting to Manny. " . . . Your name sounds a lot like 'manly'. Is that on purpose?" Rose light-heartedly accused, giving Manny a playfully shrewd look. It was his turn to fall under her piercing gaze as she attempted to read his aura. "This is our first journey away from home, but we've been getting to know our pokemon for a while now and we both felt like we were ready to challenge ourselves." Rose explained. At this, Mary leaned out from where she was delicately braiding Reanne's hair with the handle of her hairbrush gripped between her lips.

"Mnoeshnot!" she interjected, unable to speak clearly. It sounded like an objection, though. Rose passed her a glance, smiling lightly at her before returning her attention to no one in particular. "I mean--That's why I'm here anyway. Rose just wants to travel and see the world. I don't think she even cares if she wins this thing." Rose sassily remarked. Mary took the brush from her mouth at this remark, no longer needing both hands to keep the braid she'd just finished from falling apart. "That's not true! I want to give it my best shot so I can support my pokemon and my new friends later~!" Mary explained rather cheerily. "By that you mean you want ...one of us to win." Rose flatly accused, receiving a little shrug in response. "--Well, yeah! I know how important it is to you. I think I'd be happy as long as the winner is one of my friends." Mary replied as if it were the most obvious statement in the world. Rose softly rolled her eyes. She knew that that just meant Mary would be trying to befriend as many people as she could along the way. She just had to keep an eye on Mary to make sure no one took advantage of her better nature. She'd probably be really popular with any boys their age they came across, knowing what boys their age were like.

Seeing that the crowd had started to thin a bit, Mary decided it was time to take Reanne up on her earlier request. No secrets. "My sister Rose has strange eyes. She sees stuff nobody else can. Mary explained in a rather goofy attempt to sound spooky and mysterious. This drew a rather visible flinch from Rose, whose eyes widened in alarm at Mary's choice of words. She seemed to become very uneasy, lowering her gaze to hide her eyes behind her bangs and squirming slightly where she stood. " . . . I'm not crazy. Please don't look at me like I'm crazy." she softly replied in a very nervous tone. It seemed like Rose was a little sensitive about being crazy 'seeing things', whatever that meant. One got the impression that she was probably crazy and would react violently if you used that word she had probably suffered some ostracization, partially as a result of her condition. "She's fiiine. I like her strange eyes~!" Mary light-heartedly added. She, of course, would be diligent in continuing her work on Reanne's hair, even if they got off of her musharna and walked into the pokemon center. She was probably about halfway done.

    Tex and his group drop off the attacking tribe onto their territory as Tex Raised his arms to act like a scary beast as the hunting party ran off in fear of the psychic pokemon's strength. On their way back towards their tribal lands, They located a Snivvy lying in the ground, out cold. "....Why on earth is a grass type doing out here this far on the plateau?' The Machoke picks it up and carries it back over to Tex. "....☼§▲, Do you have an Oran on you?" The Lucario pulls out an Oran Berry and attempts to force feed the Snivvy by crushing the berry and placing a portion of it in it's mouth. "You awake child?"




    Out on the track, a group of Electrodes and Votorbs begin sabotaging a train leading to Lux Bravio in Ignea. As they place stones on the track, they wait patiently as the train rolls into sight. As the train hit's the stone's, the engine begins to tilt and totter back and forth until it falls off and the rest of the train cars follow. The chaos erupts as the cars go flying in different directions while others are nearly rushed completely by the force of the other carts.




    Joseph walks up to reclaim Static and walks outside to see the group. He passes by to walk towards the bus office and present his pass. The office attendant nods and replies that they've radioed for help and are sending another transport from Lux Bravio to take them the rest of the way. Joseph thanked her and walked away to see the others. ".... I suck at public speaking...*ahem*.... Sorry to interrupt, But the next bus to Lux Bravio may not be for an hour or so."

    "I don't think it's crazy.... I mean, we just escaped a bus that got vaporized by lightning and attacked by pokemon who we're nearly as organized as trainers, met a pokemon who could speak capable english instead of just pokemon speech and lead by said pokemon all the way to safety..... If anything, today's been awesome!' Joseph gives a cocky grin and a thumbs up.

    “I’m Emmanuel, you can call me Manny if you'd like,” he said with a light tap of his chest, “from Orre. Nice to meet you guys. Except you with the Earthquakes."
    "Where in Orre do you rein from Manny?" Joseph asked as he pulled out his Camera and snapped a shot of the current group who survived the bus trip so far. "... Aside From the Maple's, is there any other reason everyone's come to Ignea?"

      "It's okay, everything will be fine."
      Bus Stop
      Reanne


      Minutes past for a short float onward led her and her companions to a brighter disposition. As if a terrible storm had dissipated entirely, the sky that greeted them was an exquisite blue gradient. The sun was absent through first sight. Yet, it was evidently there, it was just raised too high for anyone to reach it now. But have anyone ever felt what it feels like to touch that? It might sounded ridiculous, but the thought remained. If they had the chance within their grasp, would they do it?

      Cross-armed, Reanne sat straightly still on her Pokémon, feeling her long hair gently tugged constantly by Mary from the back. Mary seemed to have done a great job at grooming Reanne's hair, strand by strand, to what it should've been formerly. At least, her effort made Reanne's hair to be weighed down by gravity, some of it fluttering as the warm breeze came spreading across the open canyon. After engaging a successful proposal, Reanne remained silent as the others, one after another, had exchanged their names--including Tex the Slowbro as an unnecessary bonus. Her sleepy gaze wasn't exactly a nonchalant display of laziness or running out of nice things to say. Instead, the subject just became more interesting when they added even more things related to what they've been just through.

      There were earthquakes? I didn't feel anything when I was doing this contest thing. The two sisters didn't mention anything about it either... The thought remained inside her mind, whereas she blinked as if she remembered something obscure, ...Ah, it must be them being too far apart from Shimmer. Should I explain it to them? She paused a bit before continuing, ...Nah, there's no need. Maybe next time.

      A moment later, Reanne heard a light whisper from her back. It was Mary, who happily volunteered to tidy her hair as a mutual sign. She turned to face her, "Seeing stuff nobody else can, eh..." It didn't appear as obvious to her, but her mind was elsewhere when she thought of see-through matters. It must've been hard for Rose to see things she didn't ask for. So hard that Reanne would actually like to have the same ability as well. She might not be too gifted in terms of inheritance or the like, thus, the thought envied her that she didn't realize she was making a weird face.

      "Eh heh, um, that wasn't so bad, was it?" Reanne's voice sounded reluctant as she tried to quickly divert what she had in mind, "Mm, I'm not the one who could really comment anything about one's possession. You know your sister more than I do, after all. In return, I..." Reanne winked reassuringly at Mary, "...have nothing to hide either. What you see of me is what I am." She continued, "Back to what you're doing, I must say that a thanks won't be enough to express my gratitude. You saved me the trouble of doing such tedious work, so I will do anything for you. How about that?" She dared herself, without thinking much of what could happen if she were to say that to anyone else.

      As soon as she did, Reanne noticed one of the Trainers who took the questioning to the others. Deciding to hop in, she answered, "I come here to find out about what kind of contest is this. It does sound like fun." She giggled.

      Jotting down a few final words in his journal, a voice resonated through the pokemon center. When each trainer's pokemon was refreshed a number was called. "Number 6, please!" the woman behind the counter announced. "Looks like that's me." Toru mumbled as he glanced down at the ticket he had placed on the table. Snatching it up he returned to the counter and presented the piece of paper to the attendant. "Glad we can help, sir! Please come again!" the woman behind the counter was quite cheerful despite the location they seemed to be placed in. Toru reattached his pokeballs to his waist and began to make his way out of the building.

      Mmm, I better make sure I'm not late to catch this bus... but before that...

      Gripping one of the balls he had just put away, Espeon appeared. "You must have been cramped, huh? I don't think you've ever stayed in these things for that long before... Sorry!" he chuckled a bit as he poked fun at his partner. Espeon sat and turned it's head away from him as if she was shunning Toru. "Hehe, I didn't expect anything different..." his voice began to trail off as he began to reflect on the pokemon that had spoken to him.

      I wonder if I could eventually learn to understand you.

      Shaking it off, Toru continued. "Let's get going, yeah?" The duo finally emerged outside, however this time it seemed like the whole atmosphere had changed. The storm riddled skies had taken on a new life. Displaying a beautiful open view of blue where only a few clouds could be seen trailing throughout. Beside him the psychic pokemon gave out a loud purr-like noise. "Pretty nice, huh? Completely different from before..." he responded before approaching the bus attendants.

      Toru presented his ticket to the attendant who glanced it over quickly before giving him a nod. "You're all good to go! However, we're looking at a bit of wait... I'd say could be up to an hour." Toru stuffed his ticket back into his pocket and reverted his attention back to his pokemon. "Well what do ya say? Let's enjoy this peace while it lasts right?"

      ...He didn't think she was insane. That boy over there--Joseph, wasn't it? He didn't think she was crazy! ...Maybe he was crazy. Maybe they were both crazy! No, that would make them normal. Why wasn't anyone asking any questions?? She would be asking questions if someone told her they saw things that weren't real! Rose's cheeks turned a subtle shade of red as she tried to process people being nice to her. And like a dork, she wound up bashfully flashing a thumbs up back at Joseph after a moment, unable to collect herself enough to respond with words. However, Reanne had a very different reaction. Her aura bristled, and that look on her face--She barely even needed special eyes to figure out how Reanne was feeling right then, but it certainly took out the guesswork. That was an emotion she was very familiar with. She'd witnessed it dozens of times from her girl friends back home and at school. She knew exacty the color, shape, the texture, the way it moved. That was envy. But... why? For all her insight, she could not imagine why anyone would be envious of her eyes. If not because Mary had made her sound crazy but because...--Was that another feeling hidden in there? What was that? Ah well. If Rose spent all day trying to figure out what every mysterious emotion was in everyone's auras she'd get nothing else done.

      "Ehehe, it's okay. If I see anything interesting, I'll be sure to let you know. That way, my eyes can be your eyes too!" Rose sheepishly replied, trying to work around that envy. If one were particularly perceptive, they might've noticed the sharp change from shame and embarassment earlier. Almost as if she knew the air had changed. "--I kinda need them for other stuff though, so they'll need to stay with me." Rose went on to add with a wink.

      Nearby, Mary finished braiding Reanne's hair. Before she could even begin to gush over her work, Reanne expressed her gratitude by making ... a promise? Her eyes widened with wonder at one word in particular. ...'Anything'. Anything?? It stole the breathe right from her lungs, and she had to take a moment to gather it back. Mary beamed rather invitingly at the other once she registered that Reanne was being serious. "Wow~! That's one of the most romantic things anyone's ever said to me! It's a deal~!" Mary chirped rather eagerly in response, drawing an eye roll from Rose. "...Dork." she remarked, poking fun at Mary's choice of words. She knew Mary well enough to know that Mary tended to use the word romantic in a rather archaic way. It had gotten her sister some unwanted attention of her own from bullies, but Reanne didn't seem like the sort to take it the wrong way. Mary seemed unfazed by Rose's remark though, giggling at the teasing a bit.
      "Apparently a new bus will be here to take us the rest of the way in about an hour. We should get any small time shopping we need done now before we're stuck here waiting for it to show up." Rose suggested.

      "If you wanted, I could travel along with you once we get to Ignea. Then I could do your hair more often~!" Mary offered, seeming to have taken a strong liking to Reanne. One got the impression that she simply enjoyed the time they spent bonding together. Or in Rose's case, she got the impression that Mary had lost her freakin' mind. A spike of jealousy jabbed its way right into her heart. "--I thought you were going to travel with me!" Rose protested, not too thrilled with the implicit volunteering. "I wanna travel with both of you~!" Mary replied rather brightly. Rose averted her eyes down at the ground, feeling rather left out in spite of Mary's words. " . . . Would that be okay if my sister came along too? We can all figure out what to do together~" Mary suggested, taking notice of Rose's sulking.

      Emmanuel "Manny" Chapman
      Emmanuel smiled, taking the playful comment as a compliment. He was about to say something in response, Rose’s long gaze caught him off-guard, causing him to swallow his words. The smile slowly gave way into a curious look, Emmanuel unsure of why her eyes were focused on him. Was she expecting a response? “I’ve never thought about it like that, but I think it fits.” He finally said, pulling his shoulders back so that it pushed out his chest. Posture was an important part of looking manly.

      He took a moment to size up the others, partly to avoid Rose’s gaze. He eyes eventually found their way over to the brunette, Rose’s sister, Maple, when he heard muffle something in response to Rose, then over to Reanne, the girl whose hair Maple was braiding. Emmanuel’s own gaze lingered for a moment, and then the thought crept into his mind, how old was everyone here?

      His gaze shifted downwards as his hand went rubbing against his chin. It was a matter of great importance for Emmanuel, and he had never been good at guessing ages. He thought to ask, but as he opened his mouth, he stopped himself just short. On second thought, he realized, probably not such a good idea.

      “Where in Orre do you rein from Manny?” He heard voice ask him. He looked up to see Joseph, the younger man that had just introduced himself earlier. Emmanuel was thankful for the interruption to his thoughts, and it showed on his face. “I’m from Gateon,” he said fondly, “but I spent a lot of years in Pyrite. Lots of great memories and battles there.” He nodded along to himself reminiscently.

      Having arrived at their checkpoint, Emmanuel noticed the Pokémon Center and excused himself to the group. “I’ll see you all later,” he said cheerily, jogging off to the building.

        Hours pass as the bus finally pulls into the station. The bus honks it's horn as the group kicking the dirt take notice. Joseph Boards the bus anhd yells at everyone that the bus arrived. As Joseph climbs aboard the steel machine and walks towards the back, Releasing Caboose from his pokeball and feeding him a little food he picked up from the local mart.




        (Note: This is for when players post boarding and arriving)

        The bus travels a short few miles as a barren land gains shades of grass as the sun dips low over the horizon as a hot pink light comes up from over the distance. Neon signs everywhere, attracting everyone to a casino, a piano or jazz club, minor arcades, love hotels and get-hitched churches. "This is Lux Bravio?.... The world..... It's just an over-glorified city of light s.... does anyone ever sleep there?"

        As the bus stops, and the group get's off, there is music in the air with electronic trumpet fanfare coming from the entrance to the city with a banner for Pokemon Earth and Sky hanging above and a speaker coming up on stage. The speaker was a slim man with greasy hair, a stylish white tuxedo, white gloves wearing a pair of rose tinted colored glasses that seemed to reflect like mirror shades. He began to address the short crowd from a small stage in the center as the speakers in the city began to crack at his voice before the vocals came in, the entire city was addressed at once."All trainers! I welcome you to Lux Bravio! The city that never sleeps and never wakes! Don't ask me who calls it that, I just work here! I also welcome you to out first competition in hope's to attract the pokemon league comity out here to our land to get some business driving in. Earth and Sky does not work like most contest's, you do not enter our 'champions' indigo plateau unless you perform one of the few actions." He holds up a pokerchip. "By dawn, if you return to the city entrance and claim you are in the contest, you'll be given a stamp with special ink an a bag of these poker chips, 10 of them. From here you can wager your chips against other trainers and either lose or win more. The trainer with 100 chips earns themselves an entry into the championship. You can also gamble these tokens in our casinos or many arcades and win your entry into the championship if your lucky enough. You can also buy your way in, though these chips are about $10,000 each if you buy from us. IT will be better to earn them yourself. Don't spend them all in one place!" He chuckles a little and sighs. "If you loose all of your chips, it doesn't mean game over. There is another method! Our there in the wild, there area treasures being guarded by a few factions of the locals who may refer to as the tribes. If you are able to attain 1 of these treasures, you attain immediate entry in the championship. If you attain 2 or 3 of those treasures, you can face the elites yourself without having to go through the trouble of fighting in the tournament. If you or say, a group of friends attain or locates all 5 of them for yourself, the contest ends and you will be declared as an instant winner where you'll receive the grand mystery prize!!!... And I promise you, the prize ain't some mystery box or something that one would refer as chump change like the tickets for our comedy club. It is something big and for all you know, it could be claiming the entire city of Lux Bravio for yourself.... Or maybe a legendary pokemon? Maybe we'll clear some land to build a new city! Bigger and better than Lux Bravio to have your own Pokemon gym to symbolize you and others have arrived!.... Runner's up will receive a cash compensation. To all of you trainers out there, good hunting!... Also for the contest participants, The love hotels Garmans Love House, Jynx's Hide Away and Smoochum's Playroom have been instructed to give trainers a free night; on us! Food and snacks will be provided until 9AM in the morning; from there you'll need to pay your way in. Whether to get your freak on or grab some shut-eye after a long trip. We could care less! Enjoy!" The speaker bows and steps off of his stage as he disappears into the lights.

          It seemed like at least they were heading to somewhere new. A new place to explore, who knows what quests lie ahead for him?

          And then there's a guy who seemed to question his methods. “Jury’s still out on you,”

          "Oh, Manny, is it? Well, its not like we're in serious trouble for the ruckus I caused anyway, eh?

          The name's Nathaniel, but Nathan is fine. Its a competition anyway, might as well go bold and be offensive rather than... looking after anyone else's behinds. I'd be more concerned about fending for myself, even if the occasions get bad for all of us you know."

            Hmm, how should I describe it? We Trainers came from different places, cultures, and now we're tied to an objective we didn't have to agree with in the first place -- the contest, one of the several things that intrigued our curious-minded will. They told me it will be a short trip once we got on the bus, and it was. I sure hadn't known the exact time, though I could only see how lilac the skies were, almost as if evening is about to replace noontime.

            Each time I see a cactus had gone past, I got the feeling that I'm sitting my way through, nearer to the unknown, further from home. It's been just a day that I got here, but I've never thought that I'd miss my old lonely life back in where I used to live. I imagine how it was like to stargaze from the rooftops... counting how many bright things and write them off everyday, making a wish whenever it falls... floating on Shimmer to see if I could grasp myself one at my leisure...

            ...Yet in here, the gaze of the barren land blending in with the grasslands is just as amazing, I couldn't never get tired of seeing things like these. If it was to impress people from the outer world, it sure did succeed to make me feel like home. But of course, this isn't where I should sleep on a sleeping bag. Night have always been awfully chilly that I'm too used to wear this gift from my father, even in my sleep, and today, I had taken it off because Mary wanted to adjust my hair the way she wanted it.

            I couldn't really shake off how I feel about being attached with somebody, but I did realize one thing, that being in one's company makes me feel comfortable. It makes me wonder still, where they could have gone? That's my only wish, and I'd be more than grateful once I caught vision of them. Someday...



            Once the second bus had stopped on its tracks, being the nearest to the door side, Reanne pushed the door wide to reveal a newfound atmosphere surrounding her and the group before her. She set her foot on the road, trying to get a clearer view of the city in the open, eager of how lively the place proved to be. Reflections of various lights of a rainbow were very dominant in the eye, and in the distance afar, blurred a burning golden glow that reeks pure commerce.

            "So it seems. We've arrived." Said Reanne, spreading her stiffening arms wide, taking in things bit by bit as she faced through the group who should've followed suit. Though, her attention were driven away as music started to spike up at the other side of the bus' entrance. Slowly, Reanne made herself appear to see a crowd of people and Pokémon, watching a man in white suit making his introductory speech toward the supposed competitors. They weren't so late, after all.

            ...And of course, it didn't take long for him to finish. Though some of the listeners weren't very enthused with his manners, most of them gave a nod towards each other, and the rarer species did threw off his clothes while screaming loudly, drumming his belly with unmistakable hype. ...But why? Scratching that detail, the most important thing to discuss is what should they do before dawn comes.

            "...That was...most unusual." Reanne expressed herself toward what she just heard, and saw. It dissipated soon enough from her enough as she picked up her tone back to ask the group, "But anyway, I'm sure most of us are taking part of this contest, right? So, have any of you got some suggestions? Places to visit and so on, before we get ourselves a free pass inside that one hotel?"

            Rose's playfully faux suspicion melted away when Manny played along, chuckling good-naturedly at his response. It was nice to stop and laugh a little after an uncomfortable brush up against death.

            ...The bus finally arrived, and the two sisters were spurred along to their final destination. Upon their arrival, they quickly joined Reanne in stretching after their long bus ride. Or well--Mary did. She'd managed to stay awake, while Rose wound up falling asleep against her. Speaking of Rose, she was looking slightly disheveled, but thankfully a...--well not a good rest but an okay one, proved to be enough to take her mind off of her anxieties for the time being.

            "I really like that cool cat giving the speech." Mary murmured to Rose, keeping her voice relatively low so that they could still hear the speaker. Rose's brow furrowed. "...Dude, that dude puts more product in his hair than we do." Rose replied in disapproval, matching Mary's quiet volume. "He must love his hair even more than we do." Mary replied. "...That's not love. He looks like he smells like he looks." Rose replied rather flatly. "He looks like he could star in a movie! I bet he owns a BMW and an MBA~" Mary cheerily replied, unfazed. Rose shook her head. "Maybe as the grody villain... What are you--?" Rose began, only to do a double take as the speaker brought up love hotels. Huh? Had she misheard that? "Oowow!! Love hotels~!" Mary gushed, her eyes full of stars. That sounded like ... the most amazing hotel ever conceived! "...No." Rose firmly stated. "--But why? I wanna get my freak on~!" Mary innocently replied, thrusting her hands together in a pleading motion. Rose's face twisted a bit in mild disgust. She reached out and gently pressed her finger to Mary's lips, hushing her. "Shut--...Don't ever say that again. This is what Mom and Dad warned us about. Besides, ...I don't think those places are for girls." Rose softly scolded, passing a shifty glance over her shoulder as she tried to banish those thoughts. "But I see girls heading into one of the hotels right over there!" Mary countered, pointing over the crowd. Rose followed her gesture, catching sight of a group of women in matching uniforms. "I think those are employees." Rose explained. "...But why would they direct us to a hotel that isn't for girls?" Mary asked in confusion. Rose sighed softly. "...Honestly Mary, a lot of girls' parents probably wouldn't let them travel to a faraway region alone. That or they're chasing boys and settling down near their home town instead of adventuring. ...You know Mom got fired just for having us? It's still kind of a boy's world out there. Most of the contestants are probably boys too." Rose explained with mild distaste for the topic. "Oh... I guess that makes us rebels without a cause~!" Mary remarked, raising a fist and flexing an arm in an enthusiasticly competitive gesture and flashing a wink at Rose and Reanne, assuming the other was paying attention. Rose softly chuckled. "Sure. Why not. Just stay out of any love dens or anything weird like that. We're just here for the beds. ...The empty ones, with no one else in them." Rose decisively explained, only for her choice of words to immediately betray her and earn her an entirely bewildered look from Mary as she went on to correct herself. Her sister didn't have a clue what she was on about, and it showed on her face. Oh well...

            Turning to Reanne, Rose smiled half-heartedly. "Hey Reanne? What do you think about going after those tribes? I figure we can battle any time we want any region we want, but we'll never get another chance to take on the tribes and whatever challenges they have in store for us. Plus, we can all get into the championship together that way!" Rose suggested. Mary considered this for a long moment. The logic was sound. The path was lined with mystery, intrigue and adventure. Her heart raced at the thought. "Oooh... I like that idea! Do you wanna do that, Reanne?" Mary eagerly chimed in, both of their attentions now settled on their de facto leader.

              Getting down the bus, Nathaniel's eyes basked in the surroundings. It seemed to be a lively atmosphere, with most people getting excited as they eagerly listened to a man in white, announcing something rather important.

              "THIIS IS SOOOOO HYPEEEE! I CAN'T WAIT FOR IT TO BEGINNN!!" a man nearby exclaimed loudly, while removing his shirt and bellying his own drum.

              ...was that really necessary? he thought.

              And then he heard those two words. Love hotel. Oh dear, this is one of those places, isn't it? It's hilarious that they're in here for serious business and yet, of all the place they could stop by, they had to stop at a lounge for... partners.

              After hearing Reanne's suggestion, he said, "Well, I think we should check out the arcades first. Who knows if they might be pretty easy to win, I've got a good knack in gambling too!"

              Emmanuel "Manny" Chapman
              Emmanuel whistled in amazement as he stepped off the bus, taking in the sight of the city. He could hardly believe something so vibrant and lively was just sitting out here so close to his hometown, separated only by a range of desert and barren land, already forgetting the danger they faced to get here. The speech, despite the flashiness of its speaker and setup, drew little attention from Manny, whose eyes were feasting on the bright lights and bustling bodies of people moving about.

              “This is gonna be fun.” He said to himself, the excitement bounding through his limbs. Manny fondly recalled the memories of his nighttime escapades back in Orre, and what he remembered could only pale in comparison to the allures of Lux Bravio.

              By the time the speech was over, the crowd beginning to disperse, Manny had wandered off some distance away from the group he had arrived with. He had practically forgotten about them under the bright neon lights of the city. It took only a few buildings until Manny found what he was looking for, a club. It had been awhile since the young man had let loose and he wanted to enjoy himself while the night still lasted.

              Still early into the night, Manny found his way into the club without much of problem, the bouncer had yet to begin cutting people off. Even though the night was just starting, patrons already crowded the floor and Emmanuel wasted no time in joining them.

              His body moved fluidly to the rhythm of the music, sliding into a group of some men and women. His eyes locked with a woman’s, and they began to match their movements to one another, a sort of flow between their movements taking shape. It was brief, interrupted as she was pulled back into the arms of a seemingly irritated partner. She gave an apologetic smile and then they disappeared further into the crowd.

              Emmanuel wasn’t especially bothered, things like that happened sometimes. He continued to dance, scanning the crowd, hoping to meet another person’s eyes. It was a brief search as he felt a pair of bold arms slip around his waist from behind, slowly turning him around.

                The moment Reanne asked them about what to do, some already gave their answers expectantly. They were all coming from none other than the ones she spoke to the most, but not truly the answers she was expecting as they all are for the coming dawn, not the present night as the skies started to fade their light into darkness. That's not going to be a problem, she thought, because she's confident they'll find a way to spend the night, and hey, it's better than listening to the winds,

                "Ah, that idea isn't too shabby at all. Y-yeah, that's right..." Reanne commented smilingly, feeling a sweat dropping for sounding awkward, though regained her composure quickly, "Ahem. Actually, it's apparent to say that we all think alike. That's also what I'm considering after what we've heard so far, but figures, I should've known better that there are people who have their fair share of competitiveness." She winked an eye at the two girls, "My answer should be obvious enough to guess. Besides, wasn't that the reason why we're here, right?"

                Then, Reanne turned to face Nathaniel curiously, who encouraged the group to try their luck in gambling. "Ah, glad you're not running away from us. I recall that you want to bet and obtain hefty profit from it, and I'd..." She continued, keeping a smile that kept her past experience well-concealed, "...say that we shouldn't. Gambling is only good if you win, but should the inevitable happen, what can you say to what has been lost?"

                After having given her thoughts to the two, Reanne continued her turn to speak, looking a little weary than usual, "Well, that's unexpected. It's not like we've got nowhere to go to during the night, but we probably start moving our legs and look for a place to stay on. Honestly, my back feels sore just from sitting for hours. Not only that, it's starting to get cold in here..."

                Without hesitation, she made her first move onward, taking the lead to the deeper portion of the city through the raised sidewalk to the right...then paused. The realization of not knowing where's where hit her like a toy brick, but the concern was realer than her love for bakeries. Judging by how big the city was, she'd get lost in no time if she wandered out by only herself. She only managed to avoid such mistake as a Skitty passed by on the way, stopping her for a moment to let the Kitten Pokémon to cross and reach the other end of the road, then gone as the view was closed by passing pedestrians who glanced at the Skitty momentarily. That was a curious sight, where could she be heading to? The thought intrigued her, but it might be better to leave it as it was.

                "...Hey, what are you waiting for? Let's go!" Reanne beckoned the group to catch up on her pace. Though that was done in an attempt to keep her cool, it's profoundly safer to travel in groups than going solo... Now that she thought of it, it felt like she didn't catch a glimpse of somebody who was there a moment ago. She wasn't sure with the number count being odd, could it be just her imagination? The probable occasion lay obscurely within the cold air...

                Wiping away a bead of sweat from his forehead, Toru had almost lost track of time since he had been waiting for the next bus to arrive. Grazing his fingers back through his hair he wrapped a tie around his curly locks and knotted the mess into a bun. "You must be enjoying this sun a bit more than I am at this point!" he motioned to Espeon as the Pokemon purred in pleasure. Finally, a horn rang through the air signalling the bus' arrival.

                Hmph. Finally.

                As the other trainers had made their way onto the bus first, Toru found two empty seats so his partner could accompany him on the ride. Slouching back and releasing a hearty sigh, exhaustion finally overcame him and he began to doze off.

                Now that I think about it, I think this might be the first time I've been able to get comfortable since the attack on the last bus ride... here's to hoping this one goes a bit smoother...


                As quickly as he was able to fall asleep, the bus came to a stop at their destination. Toru groggily let out a large yawn and began to rub his eyes in an attempt to regain consciousness. "Huh?" quickly coming to at the sight of his new destination he became awestruck by the sight before him. A lustrous, colorful city filled with various attractions glowed outside the bus window. The group of trainers he had been traveling with were already gathered in front of a stage and were listening to the sounds that seemed to be blaring from the speakers surrounding it. In a state of panic Toru rushed off the bus with Espeon in tow and stopped himself as a man in a white tuxedo began addressing the crowd on the rules of an upcoming competition. Toru stood still and began to take in everything that was being presented to him.

                  "Well, if the majority would not want to do it, I can only digress and follow through," Nathaniel said with a shrug.

                  As he said that, he caught a glimpse of some odd-looking hotels.

                  Love hotels, huh. Wonder why they had such a shady name for a hotel. The city itself seems to be bumbling in life, with peak activity from each and everyone there, with a sense of belonging.

                  Perhaps its just part of their culture huh? Going into such hotels to do such... things.

                  Wait a minute. Weren't they going to stay in one of those hotels? Those notorious love hotels famous for those sort of *activities*?

                  Oh dear.

                  But they're gonna stay in different rooms right? So perhaps there won't be room for such *activities* in the first place.

                  Oh get your mind straight Nathaniel! You're here to win the contest, not fulfill your inner desires!

                  He shook his head as he followed the group towards their next destination.

                    Joseph observed the entire city after the annoucements of the contest as he had to squint his eyes in sight of all the neon. The trainer's rush into the city, heading into the local Casino's and Arcades while the hungry go into the local restaurant's. A small Delibird is seen carrying around a platter of drink's it's pulling from it's bag to serve it's denizens fresh alcohol and juice. At the center of the city, An ad runs on the massiv eTV advertising 'LAZER RAYCE!' Which looked like a combination of Tron and Mario Kart, shoved together... and the cart's wall's don 't fall or reset until they finish a lap. Joseph Squints his eye's, unable to deal with the issue, he make's his way for the Love Hotel, Smoochum's Playroom. Inside, 9he register's with the front desk that he's a trainer checking in alone. They give him a room Key as Caboose wanders off to the nearby Buffet and start's stuffing his face with the spread while piling food ontop of it's head. "Hey, hey, HEY, HEY! Caboose! Stop eating all the-! Too tired to argue..." HE release's Blaze from his ball and request's him to get Caboose; Though he joins Caboose in the feast. He ask's the same of Static, though Static joins the other 2. "oh COME O-" Caboose stuffs a banana in his mouth and put's a grape soda in his hand while pushing him back into a couch in the hotel Foyer. Joseph gives a glare before he give's up, eat's the fruit while watching his team stuff their faces.

                    Joseph got up as the 3 finish up, leaning back satisfied and begin following him up into the room. The bedroom didn't have anything extreme with the exception of the heart-shaped bed and red sofa. The VHS case was stocked with plenty of movies from out east, everything from Primeape-Zilla to Frankenstein starring mostly Pokemon. Jospeh steps into the bathroom, showers and start's wrapping a headband around his forehead to hide his scar as he get's dressed into more appropriate city wear and start's walking out, leaving his team to sleep. He steps out looking for the local poke'mart, which was difficult seeing as there was a casino or bar within every 5 steps, though he located it, stocking up on pokeballs before walking out and making his way back to a hotel.

                    He looked up at the Earth and Sky Ad and wondered if he should participate in the contest's hunt while looking for what he was intending to find while he was out here.



                    To Move onto Day, A majority of participants must retire to a hotel.

                    Blaze :: Good - Caboose :: Good - Static :: Good
                    ::Chapter 1 - To Ignea!:: 99%

                      The night before dawn...


                      A few blocks ahead, to the left of an intersection, then to a stop. Where crowds were seen on the elevated entryway, they followed suit in discerning the correctness of direction. Ascending through a wide staircase, two Trainers found themselves staring at a large building that stretches far up into the starry skies. Above the entrance, a plaque made out of silvery structure was embedded with a name, and a sentence describing the purpose of the place -- "Jynx's Hide Away - A safe hawen for everyone."

                      "Well let's see, it seems like an idyllic place for shelter. Not sure why a Jynx would be referred to here though." Nathaniel commented.

                      "Maybe the owner really likes that Pokémon, for whatever that could be." Reanne replied.

                      "Hmm, wait a second, what's this?" He took a glance at the plaque, and pointed out something peculiar. "Why, they spelt haven wrongly, that's silly of them..."

                      "Well, everyone make mistakes." She chimed in, keeping up with her pace, "You can't always expect them to have things the way they want it, right?"

                      "While that might be true, wouldn't that leave an unprofessional imagery to its visitors?" He explained.

                      "I suppose you're right." She shrugged, "But I'd say, give it a chance. If the service wasn't any better, there sure won't be a lot of people hanging around here, am I right?"

                      "Good point." Nathaniel said while taking the lead as both of them reached the entrance, "Well, here we are, let's go."

                      In spite of the mistake in the wording, upon gaining entry through the revolving glasses, they were awaited a luxurious sight. White walls embellished with crimson curtains and symbolic carvings of a certain humanoid Pokémon, highlighted by the lamps fixed in opposition of the surrounding foundation. The floor was carpeted with tint of bright red, adorned with twined lines taking shape of the golden hair of the Human Shape Pokémon. Following the path, stood a wooden counter, behind it a woman dressed in a blazer adorned in gold. When she gave a smile, you can feel the shine emitting from her golden teeth.

                      Assuming that the rest were following, Reanne didn't hesitate as soon the next in line had their business over with. "Hello, we're Trainers who are participating for this so-called contest. Is there a room for three persons?" She asked the woman who sat beyond the desk whose job is to greet visitors from anywhere they come.

                      "Trainers, eh? Let me check if there's any with three beds." The receptionist immediately hovered her fingers for a quick search in the monitor, then turned to face Reanne once more gleefully, "We're sorry, miss. Everything fitting for three and more are all occupied. Currently, we could only provide three rooms, for two."

                      "Room for two? Well there's five of us... doesn't that mean one of us has to stay alone?" Nathaniel asked. He looked around. It seemed a bit unbalanced... three girls and two boys. So most likely one of the girls'll have to be alone? Well, Nathaniel doesn't mind staying alone but... that would mean one of the girls will have to stay with Toru, no? He ain't sure if they're gonna be comfortable with that...

                      "So the rumors were true!" Failing to understand, Reanne exclaimed, "People like it better to be in company with more than one, in a hotel of affection they said!"

                      "Um...ah...ahaha..." She calmly chuckled, though sounding illusive in response to the perplexing nature of Trainers she had greeted tonight. She sighed afterwards, "We're afraid that there's a great misunderstanding in the air. Therefore, we must apologize for the misinformation you might've heard from the speech recently. As a matter of fact, some of our guests found it uncomfortable with the mention such as 'love' in our principles, but we've reassured them that it wasn't truly the case."

                      "Ah, I see." The blond-haired Trainer crossed her arms, her cheerfulness unchanging, "But that doesn't really matter. In fact, we came here to look for a place to stay. So, we intend to make reservations for some bus buddies."

                      "I believe so." The receptionist smiled while fetching a sheet and a pen, both of which presented to her, "If you will, please write out your name as well as your friends' name."

                      "Alright." Reanne bent over and started scribbling on the handed out paper. In the meantime, Nathaniel decided to stroll around a bit to... explore the insides of this majestic place for a while.

                      The interiors had been well decorated with luxurious materials and carvings. Even the washroom had a golden bidet shining, stainless. It felt really odd to him to use such luxurious facilities, when he was so used to the middle class life.

                      As he went on, he stumbled upon an aquarium, barriered by the transparent glass walls. Schools of fish roamed the waters, seeking food, or protection from bigger fishes. Nathaniel noticed various sort of sealife lurking in there, a Corphish appearing beneath the sand, a Clamperl closing its clams shut, a Basculin snapping away at goodness knows what. It was an interesting sight to see, the water habitat being within your reach, yet unreachable.

                      "Young man, is there something wrong?" He was probably there for a long time, but his concentration was finally broken down by an elderly hotel assistant.

                      "W-What? O-Oh, nah, not really. I'm just... admiring this aquarium." Explained Nathaniel.

                      "Ah, yes, the pride of our humble shelter." The hotel assistant turned his sight at the aquarium, "Visitors often flock into here, to catch a glimpse of such a beauty. It's a shame that visitor numbers have been dwindling recently."

                      "Dwindling?" Curious, the white-wigged man asked, "This place is so fancy, why'd that happen?"

                      "Ah, young man! You see, back then, there was a rumour, that spread far and wide." He continued as he cleared his throat, "...Guns and knives may hurt a man, but words can destroy a city. It was a terrible rumour that I cannot tell you, but it has stained the name of this hotel such that simpletons have avoided this abode like the plague."

                      "Why can't you tell me the rumour? Is it that bad?"

                      "Well, young man, apparently there's not much I can say since my job may be on the line, but apparently there's a treas-"

                      Before he could finish, his watch seemed to give a small beep.

                      "Ah, a request from another customer! I must bade my farewell, so till we meet again, young one. Youngsters these days surely have it easier, hahaha..." As he said that, he slowly makes his way leaving Nathaniel to observe the aquarium peacefully once more.

                      What an odd fellow, Nathaniel thought. What was he going to say earlier? Ah, perhaps it was nothing important. No time to waste, he should get back to his other Trainer pals that are probably waiting for him already.


                      "Certainly." The receptionist nodded as she pulled out and placed three keys with numbers inscribed in its metallic plating on the counter, "As instructed by our superiors, the fee for staying tonight is free. These are your keys to the room you might find in the left hall." She winked cheerfully, "Be sure to not lose it now! You'll find a hard time if you do. If you're unsure of directions, feel free to ask one of our staffs to usher you to the right place. Enjoy your stay!"

                      "Thank you very much." Reanne expressed her gratitude by trading hand waves, turning toward Nathaniel while stepping to the side to let the others get their turn. Once she locked eyes with Nathaniel's, she approached by and passed off the key. "Lookie here, this is the key to your domain."

                      "Ah, thanks." He slipped the key inside his pocket, "So, have we decided who'll share rooms?"

                      "Hmm, at least I have." Reanne thought for a bit before answering, her other hand went holding her own hip, "...Looking by the way it goes, it seems, I won't be sharing rooms with anyone tonight."

                      "My thoughts exactly." Said Nathaniel, "I mean, I don't see how we can separate the sisters either, and obviously..."

                      "...Yeah, that goes without saying." She sighed, "It's sure a shame that I can't be together with them. so I can only hope that there'll be no objections with my decision here."

                      "I guess that's for the best. Will you be fine staying alone, though?"

                      "I'll be fine." She reassured, "I sure am going to be lonely, but not for long."

                      "Well, if you say so..." Upon having said that, Nathaniel turned to see familiar presences entering from the revolving entrance. Talk about the devils, there are things that are seemingly inseparable, and having to see the same faces can make things look a little boring.

                      ...is what he'd say. It's not rare to see this occur somewhere else, but being this up close, he couldn't help but feel blurred by their happy reunion. Even the receptionist gave a little giggle while they were having their moment, though still maintaining her work as efficient as possible whenever it is in demand. Today wasn't exactly the most hectic day he's ever experienced, spent mostly waiting for a long trip to the unknown and face an odd skirmish, but he was reminded of the fact that this was all simply the beginning of something larger than what he has seen recently.

                      ...Especially, there's a nagging feeling about something that he heard from somebody who spoke to him not long ago, left hanging by a disruptive call.

                      "What was the rumour about?"

                        The night continues until the violet colored dawn paint's the sky with blue and purple as the sun slowy rises and the neon from the buildings begin to blur and attack the senses less and less. The morning sun comes to the city as the evening businesses pack up their signs and prepare for the next evening. The bars close+ and Cafe's start to open their doors. In a matter of minutes, the casino night-life town transforms into the Urban city daytime talk show in a matter of minutes. Poke Mart shops open up in hopes to jack up their prices for trainers participating before they have a chance to figure out they're being ripped off and in the back alley's the trucker's pull up their vehicles and start driving back towards to local outpost on the outskirts of the City. With the path back to Orre sealed off by impassable terrain, they would be stuck for a while.
                        A feather charred Pidgeot is seen overhead landing somewhere in the city as other street pokemon
                        In the back Alley, a man wearing a vintage vest, cotton black Khanki's with brown shoes that have battered and scratched steel tips and blonde hair with white aged tips, roughly giving away his age. He rubs the back his returning partner and inspects for any major injuries. Retrieving the money and plucking the charred feather's from the storm before feeding it a handful of Oran berries. He leads the large bird to a truck and allows it to rest in the bed before putting his foot down on the pedal and driving off.
                        start their morning prowl for scraps left behind by the drunk or wasteful humans. Stepping out with his team recalled to their respective pokeballs, Joseph steps out and makes his way towards the gate to see a large group of people in multiple lines around what looked like ticket booths. The trainer's standing at these booth's we're given stamps with an odd looking ink, electric cards and a map. Joseph check the time and shrugged as he got in line and picked up the goodies the booth's gave; the map was most of Lux Bravio and how to find some of their big league supported casinos along with payout rates and chances listed of winning for each one. Most of the trainers leaving the booth's we're leaving for the Casino while the rest just hung around aloof in town, only a handful left out into the vast wasteland.

                        Joseph looked out and noticed the trucker's outpost and decided to make his trek out there. He released Caboose and started out there, discarding his map in the nearby trash bin and keeping his charge card in hopes they can be used out here. On his travels, he notices a truck drive past him with a large bird pokemon in it's truck bed with soot covered feathers and a familiar looking vest.
                        The vehicle looked like it was moving south, kicking up dust and blocking view of the rest of it's occupants as it disappeared into the blazing heat.
                        "Hey, there's on of those kid trainers; think he's heading to the outpost?" The Pidgeot in the nods it's head. "Well, we may get some business out here after all." He chuckles as he shifts the vehicle into high gear.

                          Lux Bravio
                          Reanne


                          Once it reached out high for the blue yonder, beams of light shot out from the crevices of a closed curtain, basking the room slightly lit with dust and morning sun. Slowly, they crawled over to bring their shine deeper into the room, one of them hitting the still closed eyes of a girl who rested alongside her Musharna, Shimmer, on the other side of the twin bed.

                          "...Ngh...?" Having been disturbed by the nature's call, Reanne covered her eyes with her hand while peeking at the sudden rise of brightness. A little glance toward the window shows that it's currently morning, but what does it have to do with her staying in here? Her eyes blurry, her hair messy, she yawned and closed her eyes once more, trying to sleep a little longer.

                          "Mumumu..." Just when she did, Shimmer approached by and began to glow in a pinkish outline. The blanket covering her fell flat on the bed, unaware of what her Pokémon was doing, she slept on without realizing that she was floating and being moved at will by her companion.

                          *THUD!*

                          "Ow, ow... What was that for?!" Her voice indignant, she carried herself to a stand, assessing his mischief with a grumpy look.

                          Feeling content, Shimmer let out a deep, childlike giggle. Reanne too, while still feeling pained for being dropped down onto the floor, giggled along without bearing grudges. There has to be a reason why he did that, after all, and it's not something she could forget easily so long as she's not home... despite her inadvertent choice in getting late.


                          Within a time gap of 5 minutes, she have had shower and
                          changed clothes back into the usual.
                          Red short-sleeved shirt and white undershirt, along with grey skirt and knee-length shorts.
                          Grabbing hold of her green bag and putting on her red beret, she gave another look at herself upon a vanity mirror. Nothing about it looks or smells that bad, nor being lazy for convenience sake. It just never gets boring to wear the same garb so long as they find it comfortable.

                          "Alright, I'm all set. Shall we?" Reanne gestured at Shimmer who followed suit, looking eager even when his eyes aren't opened. Without further ado, she stretched her hand to reach for the doorknob.

                          *click* *click*

                          "Eh? Why isn't it opening?" She tried a few more times, but the door remain locked. She pushed it as she try to open the door before eventually kicking it off, but to no avail. Is she missing something?

                          Wait, a locked door simply means she just needed to insert the key to flick it open. That's right! But where's the key? She wasn't sure where she kept it the last time she's seen it, so Reanne began her thorough search by inspecting her pockets, bag, every nook and cranny of the room.

                          Yet the time ticks on, only for her to run out of the most likely places she could've placed it. The result was fruitless. The room went haphazard. Eventually, she gave up and nodded at Shimmer with a sigh. She can safely assume that the key was missing, and if it's the only way to go, she inhaled a bit before having to go through the trouble with a worried grin.


                          Soon, a door could be seen blasting off squarely onto the vacant wall, letting out an earful attracting bystanders who were nearby. Coming from the gap among rooms situated collectively in a circular corridor, Reanne withdrew Shimmer back into his Poké Ball and quickly stormed off to the exit while passing by without a word, taking hold of her worn headgear along the way. Those who didn't work in the hotel but witnessed the occasion were unsure of the reason, while those who did, rolled their eyes for their unusual nature.

                          Once she slows down to reach the exit, she is eventually met with a crowded atmosphere. Trainers from many places are already making their way in, lining themselves in wait for their turn to go. That's definitely going to take a while, but at least she's not that late either. Anything that she should do now? Probably wait, for whatever worth this contest could give to her.

                          Emmanuel "Manny" Chapman
                          Emmanuel's eyes fluttered shortly before becoming wide in panic. It was a thick, balled substance, it’s texture like coarse cloth. The flavor hardly seemed fit for someone’s mouth. His hands grasped the object with utmost urgency as if expecting it to be lodged deeply within him. It came out easily, its contents coming unraveled and saliva residue dripped onto his bare chest.

                          “What the hell!?” He exclaimed, tossing the now unrolled towel onto the floor with disgust.

                          “Mmm… quiet down…” The small murmur came from besides him and he felt something kick him.

                          “Huh? What do you mean, quiet down?” He said, keeping his voice level against his tone. “You stuffed this grimy ♥♥♥♥ing towel in my mouth!”

                          “You were snoooring…” She said almost immediately, still in that sleepy murmur of a voice. The sheets shuffled and the woman sharing his bed turned towards him, a deep, closed mouth smile on her face accompanied by half-opened eyes.

                          Any anger and frustration Emmanuel felt dissipated all at once. Her smile was just so disarming and cute, so cute. He smiled back, scooting in closer to the strained springing off the bed. “♥♥♥♥, must have been real bad, huh? I don’t blame you.”

                          “Really bad,” she repeated. “Un—believably!” She teased out the word, singing it. Then, she poked Emmanuel in the chest and turned away, her back to him now. “Goodnight!”

                          “Night…?” Emmanuel looked around. The room was dimly lit, the lights were clearly off, but it wasn’t dark. He looked at the window, and although the curtains were fully drawn, the shimmer of faint light ran all around the rectangular border.

                          “Night as in… I’m going back to sleep. Goodnight.”

                          “Right.” He said, a tinge of dejection in his voice.

                          Unlike his bedmate, whatever her name was, he couldn’t fall back asleep. Sitting up, Emmanuel looked around the room. Directly across from him Emmanuel found his bag, his clothes from yesterday crumpled up atop it. Clothes that he could only presume belonged to her were on a nearby sofa. He could hear the clock hung high on the wall ticking now.

                          “Oh ♥♥♥♥.” He sprung from the bed, tossing his sides of the sheet in the air. He heard a small grumble but paid it no mind. As Emmanuel rushed to dress himself in yesterday’s clothes, a sudden crashing noise came from outside. He flinched, his balance coming undone as he fell backward, pants dropping back down to his ankles.

                          “What the hell!” He heard her shout from underneath the covers, the drowsiness from earlier completely gone from her voice.

                          By the time Emmanuel was dressed and out the door, whatever had happened was over. In its wake was a stray door, loose from its handle and smashed against the opposing wall. “Ok…”

                          "Morning sleepyhead~!" Mary's cheery voice greeted, approaching Reanne as she exited her hotel. Rose visibly untensed a bit, taking a deep breath in relief at the sight of Reanne. "Hey Reanne. Are you alright? I felt really bad about you sleeping alone like that." Rose greeted, a light smile gracing her face. "We got you some stuff from the booths!" Mary went on to explain, holding up an arm full of stuff(TM) just waiting to be inspected. "We also picked up some breakfast~ Blueberry, banana and chocolate!" Mary announced, holding up a couple of muffins and what appeared to be oatmeal chocolate chip cookies, offering them all to Reanne. They came accompanied by a bottle of what appeared to be orange juice. Still somewhat cold! Rose produced a map, an electronic card of some sort and a stamp accompanied by a somehow weird looking ink. She'd gotten enough for all of them. "...Rose was having trouble sleeping, so we got up early." Mary finished explaining. A quick examination of Rose revealed that although she'd did her best to pretty herself up and hide her exhaustion, careful observation of her face and general quietness revealed that she was pretty out of it.




                          -----------------------------Earlier-----------------------------
                          ...Rose had never felt less like a human being. "It's amazing to think all of these people are here to find someone to spend their life with." Mary softly mused aloud from nearby, one hand in Rose's at the other's insistence. "...Yeah." Rose replied without any heart behind it. She didn't have the strength to correct Mary. She felt nauseous. Everywhere she looked, she saw desire. A terrible desire completely distinct from the hotel's namesake. She knew what love looked like. But this--This was just gross. She passed glares at those who dared look at either of them with those feelings in their hearts, sharp and hateful in response to their unwanted attention. Most of them didn't even understand what they'd done.

                          ...The two sisters shared a bed that night, but only one of them slept in it. Rose was up at the devil's hour, listening to people walk by their room and staring at the door like a hawk. Every time she tried to lay down and rest, she wound up getting upset and being unable to sleep. She hated being here, and somehow she felt most comfortable standing guard. Perfectly silent, she pondered what she would do if anyone actually tried to creep through their door. ...It was locked. She wasn't sure what she was expecting, and nothing ever came of it. The morning came, and with it Rose's strength had waned. She felt sore and sluggish. Her nauseousness was now coming from unrest, rather than disgust. She wasn't sure how she was going to get through the day, but it was too late to look for someplace else to sleep. Mary stirred next to her, sitting up and brushing some hair from her face. "--Morning, Rose~♪" Mary greeted. "Murnning." Rose murmured in response, slurring her speech a bit. She hadn't been fully awake. Catching onto this, Mary examined Rose for a moment. " . . . Did you ever get to bed??" she asked, slipping out of bed to change out of her pajamas.

                          Rose deigned not to answer. As much as she knew Mary cared about her, these weren't feelings she wanted to share. How could anyone else understand? They didn't see the world the way she did--Mary least of all.
                          ----------------------End of Flashback----------------------



                          "I hope you're going to be okay! It'd really stink if you got sick on the first day of the contest." Mary gently remarked, attempting to get some energy out of Rose. Rose looked up and offered a weak smile. "I'll be alright... I feel a little more awake now that I've gotten up and started moving." she replied, though one could still detect the weakness in her body language. The way she held herself, the hints of exhaustion in her face. She did a good job of pretending to be okay, at least. "How are you feeling, Reanne? Are you going to be ready to head out and go on an adventure once we finish eating~?" Mary asked, her eyes lighting up with delight at the prospect. She hesitated for a moment, seeming to consider someone missing. "--Is Nathan still around?" she asked.

                            The glint of the sunshine dawned on the window next to where Nathaniel was sleeping. Unfortunately, he was too busy sleeping, dreaming about something intense.

                            A cliched dream, in a universe where a well-endowed princess, pleaded to be saved.

                            The warrior, with a sword in his hand, was ready to strike down the dragon that had brought the entire world on its knees.

                            But a dragon is not a mere enemy to be slain easily, for he breathes fire and slashes at anything considered a threat, with its poisonous claws.

                            One step closer to the edge of the cliff. The seas below roared in the night, its waves crushing the rocks beneath. The warrior's enemy was right behind him, ready to pounce and roast him into crisp. But he was anticipating it, ready to make his move.

                            He rolled to the left, rolled to the right, dodging his enemy's attacks.

                            "Hah! You have good speed, young one. You may dodge my fire breaths as easily as you may. You may somehow be immune to my poisonous claws. A true man you are. But can you survive this!?"

                            And with that said, the clouds start to darken, signalling impending thunder, and perhaps doom.

                            But there the warrior saw his opportunity. Just one slash on the dragon's neck.

                            Just one more roll, and he'll make it...

                            And that was how Nathaniel woke up in the morning, his face planted on the floor underneath his bed.

                            A bit shaken, he got himself prepared after realizing how awfully late he was. The contest should be starting today, how could he have overslept, damn it!

                            After hastily putting his clothes on, he barged out of the door and clumsily moved towards the location, where the contest was about to begin.

                            There seemed to be a huge crowd already, waiting in excitement for what's in store for them. He looked to the left and right, hoping he wasn't already abandoned by his teammates. A leap of joy occured in him when he saw Rose, Mary and Reanne in a corner. He squeezed past the crowd and finally caught up with them.

                              A few minutes out into the heat, Jospeh began to sway a little about 100 feet from Lux? Bravio before he stops and makes his way back to the city with Caboose attempting to keep him upright. As soon as they reached City limits, Jospeh walks into the Air Conditioned Pokemon Center and starts his way to the pokemart built inside. He purchase's a Visor, A few large bottles of Sun Block and a larger canteen of water before he started making his way back to the front.

                              He took notice to Mary, Rose, Reanne and Nathaniel joining up. Joseph chuckled as he walked towards the group. "Good Morning folks.... Is anyone attempting to head out into the wilderness? I recommend stocking up; the temperature is above 90 degree's, I didn't even make it to the Trucker's Stop outside the city!"

                              -Outside-
                              Within the hilly areas and the rough terreign within the mountain terrein, a small tribal village is established. There are small cave's and tent's established into the cliff side made from the remains of clothes among other foreign materials. Several pokemon are roaming about the village either repairing damage from the constant wind storms or pulling the fruits and vegteble's's they keep growing using collected rain water to nourish their community.

                              Tex returns as his escort remove their poncho's and store them into a crate they keep handy as they return to their mate's. Tex approach's his tent as an old Fearow donning a yellow-worn out garb across it's back was waiting. "☼▲☼ It's good to see you." " ▼¶▌█▄♣◙‼" "... I choose to practice their tongue in order to uphold my purpose, the next lead in my stead will continue to do so to fulfill what we vowed." The old bird shake's it's head as it attempts to speak, though it's word's are primitive. "...Very Well. How...Doing, you?" "I'm doing as well as I look. The village is well fed, noone is sick, hurt. We have good ground with 'him' in Fool's Garden and good trade. All in all, we're doing well. The only trouble we've been having is with the other's out further west beyond the valley Magma Catcus Fields." "The '$↓§'? They worried... preparing for human contest..." "Contest? What contest?" "Earth, Sky. Contest giving winner land, wealth to construct human settlement. Larger than known settlement." ".... Your sources say where they are intending to build?" "No... Secret. Not trouble now.... Trouble are rules... Human must gather wealth in disk's..... Or seek 'treasure' among tribe's. Seek our promise." Tex frowns as he gaze's upon the old bird. "... Someone seeks the power from the old world. This is troublesome..." Tex sit's back and sighs, resting against his old shell. "What you do?" "... I'm going to protect our portion of the promise. If they come in and beat me to claim it, they can have it fair and square as the rite state's..." ".... When human's claim?" "Then I'll lead my family, my village out of Ignea and establish a home in Orre. Does 'he' know?" ".... He knows... He prepare's home for eventuality..... He leaves, all us will face d-....f-..." The old bird curse's in it's own speech before Tex helps him finish. "Difficulty? I know... I'll talk with him to see if we can get him to stay as long as he can until the last minute. I should probably prepare... Thank you for your visit brother." The Fearow bows before stepping out and spreading it's wings to fly off and out of the village.

                                Not long after making her exit, familiar voices shouted her name among the crowds. Reanne turned and immediately took notice of the two sisters standing nearby, both who must've beaten her in getting up from the bed, and carrying lots of things to boot! How energetic they could be? Reanne can only assume, since it's the day they all have been waiting for, it's natural to be excited.

                                "Morning, you two... Eh?" She greeted back, but why's Mary handing out these food at her? Reanne cupped her arms on the goods in response, having not said an agreement to anything yet just as she made her exit through the revolving door. Her current position didn't make her the most attentive during the whole conversation, Reanne can only listen to what they were doing in the morning before she came.

                                Once Mary asked her the easiest thing she can answer, Reanne finally spoke, "Well, a sleep is all I needed, so I'm fine as I-"

                                Halfway the moment she tried to continue, something went rumbling soundly. A red gradient went across the girl's face, realizing that simply looking at these food -- particularly bakeries -- made her equally as hungry. "Sorry for that, I think I skipped meal and just went to sleep last night..." So much for trying not to look like a glutton for her appetite, Reanne picked up the pace, "But never mind that. It puts me in relief to see the two of you here doing better than me in the early hours. After all, I've promised yesterday to explore the world out here together, so..."

                                Coincidentally, Reanne caught sight of Nathaniel who approached at them post-haste, as well as Joseph from a more further side of the city. Speaking of the devils! ...Although there might be some missing from the list, but it's likely they'll show up soon enough. While taking his advice to the heart, Reanne modestly pointed at the yellow muffin packaged neatly in a plastic wrap, "By the way, can I have this one?" She requested.
