You decide the best course of action would be to carry the orb out by hand after all. And so you pick the heavy orb back up off of the ground with a great heave-ho and turn your attention towards the exit once more.

You walk over to the rim of the well-reservoir and put your right foot up on it, ready to rock your body forward and swing yourself up with the forward momentum. As you pick your left foot up off of the ground, you nearly lose your balance and go tumbling into the well; however, you clumsily pirouette around and just barely manage to hold your balance. Torchic visibly breaths a sigh of relief at your nice save as you turn back around and peer down the corridor beyond the now-open doors. It looks like an ordinary stone hall, much like the ones you've been through before, although this one has a stone ceiling covering the hall for the first fifteen feet or so. The water splashing down over the doors occasionally reaches you, gradually moistening your dress. You can't stand here forever. With a hop that's far less graceful than you intended, what with your arms dangling before you with this heavy blue ball in them, you manage to land safely on the stone floor on the other side of the well. You can hear the roar of the water overhead as it flows from some unseen source, over the roof, and down into the well below and now behind you.

Torchic is still in the room behind you. He readies himself to follow by hopping up onto the lip of the well-reservoir. He perches there, however, unsure of whether he can safely continue or not. With waterfalls on either side of him and water below, he looks concerned. He chirps to you, catching your attention.

What do you do?

Pokémon in the area:

FFA Inventory:
x1 parchment
x1 blue orb
It didn't really surprise her, or the sighing Torchic apparently, but this thing had not magically become lighter. In the world of Fizzy Bubbles, magical things happened, but heavy items in an object of doom deciding to give her a break... Was not one of them.

Alice almost dropped to her doom, but with a cocky little spin, she saved herself, and smirked at the feat. After a little mental torture and deliberation, the trainer was ready to go before she had drenched clothing weighing her down, too. However, a reminding chirp from Torchic drew her attention.

"Oh. Are you stuck?" She asked, frowning. He must have been afraid of the water. "You'll be alright, Torchic. It's just a bit of water. Use your Focus Energy to concentrate, then do a running Bounce. You'll make the gap, I promise." The girl said reassuringly, but braced herself incase she needed to hurry and return Torchic if he fell.
