The weather was in perfect condition today; the sun shining brightly overhead with some giant fluffy clouds slowly inching their way across the sky. Sending out her Mareep Daffodil to share the experience, ABL gazed out across the rolling hills with scattered trees that provided the perfect shelters to take naps under.

While Daffodil darted around, happily chowing down on some of the lush grass, ABL took a moment to rest against one of the trees and appreciate the peaceful setting. She smiled as she watched her Mareep frolic about, darting up and down the hills while not straying too far from her trainer. However, in a bout of momentary carelessness, Daffodil let out a shocked bleat and took a spill, rolling head over tail down the hill.

ABL quickly got up and rushed over to her Pokemon to make sure she was okay. Daffodil quickly got up and shook it off, looking around perplexed. She had tripped over what seemed like a piece of firewood; a neatly chopped tree branch that rested conspicuously on the hillside. ABL picked up the mysterious piece of wood, remarking how the cut was too clean to have been created by nature. The edges were rounded and smooth as well. She looked around to see if there were any settlements nearby to no success.

Suddenly, her attention was caught by a faint cry coming over the hill behind her. “Muh muh muh!” a pink blob wailed as it bounced its way over to them. Upon closer inspection, the incoming Pokemon appeared to be a small pink Munna with little purple flower-shaped spots on its back. Its focus was locked in on the piece of wood ABL held in her hand, incessantly hopping up and down in an attempt to retrieve it. Not wanting to be a hindrance, ABL set the piece of wood down next to the energetic Pokemon.

Munna seemed to calm down quite a bit, pleased that it was now in possession of the wood. However, as it began to push the branch up the hill with its nose, ABL could tell that it was struggling quite a bit. She quickly scooped up the wood once again, causing the Munna to chirp back into a frenzy of “Muh!” sounds and carried it up to the top of the hill next to the tree where she set it back down. Munna quieted down once more, but it had a panicked look on its face. It appeared as if it wanted to tell ABL something, but it was up to her whether or not she felt like sticking around to listen.
ABL squawks in shock as her little Mareep takes a sudden fall down the slope. This started off as "ABL had a little lamb", I don't want it to turn into "Jack and Jill went up the hill". With that thought in mind, she hurries to check on Daffodil, but taking extra care to ensure she doesn't go tumbling after. Much to her relief, Daffodil seems to be unharmed from the spill.

The trainer briefly has an opportunity to examine what seems to have caused the mishap - a lone tree branch? She looks around at the trees in the area, but none in the immediate vicinity look to be missing any limbs and so the branch definitely seems a little out of place. ABL frowns.

Before she can delve any deeper into this mystery, an odd little Pokémon comes rushing over, clearly in some sort of panic. ABL willingly relinquishes the piece of wood, hoping this will help soothe the pink creature, but it remains in a highly agitated state. It seems very determined to do something with this branch, but what? Of course, ABL hates to see a Pokémon in distress and very much wants to offer her assistance, but what could the goal of all this be? The trainer scratches her head.

"What exactly is the matter, little one?" she begins, speaking in a soft and hopefully calming voice. "You don't look like the kind of Pokémon that would want to play fetch. Are you trying to build something, I wonder?"

She looks over at Daffodil, hoping she might be able to help interpret some communication here, or at least indicate what the nature of the problem is.

"I want to help you, so please don't worry," ABL tells the flowery ball. "It'll be alright, just show me what it is you'd like me to do, okay?"
