"I have this water proof gauze and some medicinal tape for water-types. I can take the harpoon out and apply this if the Lapras would let me..." She told you. "Though it will stop the bleeding, I feel it'll only be a temporary fix. I don't want to move the Lapras at this point. I know! I'll go grab Nurse Joy once Lapras settles down. Though, you'll need to defend it. Are you okay with that?"

You nod, and Lauren starts to prep. Meanwhile, you look at the food in your hands. A Chocolate Pokeblock and a Passion Pokeblock. Both of them had sweet flavors, and you hoped that the Lapras would enjoy them. The shining plesiosaur sniffed them, and then happily ate them up. It chewed them with great enthusiasm. It then looked at you, happy for a treat it never had before. You had a feeling it would definitely enjoy some of the other leftover confectionery you had. Lorin let out a happy cheer as the Lapras ate, and the Transport Pokemon looked safe.

It then swam over towards Lauren, baring the side with the harpoon. While it did eye her suspiciously, you could tell the Lapras knew the help the girl was offering was vital. She grabbed the harpoon and started to pull it out. The Lapras winced in pain, and let out a few cries until the spear was gone. Tossing the bloody spear aside, Lauren started to apply the gauze and medicinal tape to the Lapras. Your Lotad continued to act as a support for the Pokemon, and soon after the wound was all patched up. Though, you could tell that there was a heavy blood flow, from the gauze quickly turning red and the water around the water turning red. You hear something in the water, and a Sharpedo jumps out. It looked hungry, and you could tell from its gaze that it was what was watching you.

"Quick, Alice, dispatch it! I'll stay here for a bit to make sure the Lapras is okay before I go grab the nurse," Lauren shouted, and you knew she was right. Lorin looked ready to defend his new friends, and patiently awaited orders.

What do you do?
"Yeah, that sounds good to me." Alice replied after Lauren's explanation. "Well, maybe 'good' isn't the right word for it." She added thoughtfully, referring to this disaster of a situation. When the Pokemon floated closer, Alice's blue eyes lit up, a bright and adoring smile lifting her features. It was clear that she held admiration for the Lapras that many humans might, but not in a way that made her want to grab a fucking harpoon. Arceus' sake.

"Ohmygosh, you're so cuuuteee!" It was an excited little squeal as the water-type leaned down to take the food from her hands, and Alice's heart raced at how close they were. Exciting! She wished she could reach out and try to pet her, but it was vital not to spook the patient and if the Lapras moved she'd probably end up in the water. The expression broke at the other's pain, visibly cringing at the sight of the blood that dyed the water a deep crimson. "Lotaaad..." Lorin obviously wasn't happy, either. No, this definitely wasn't a permanent fix.

"-- Oh, fucking shit, fuck!" The string of curses were loud and shock-induced, and Alice stumbled back from the water's edge as if the Sharpedo might suddenly turn on her. Lorin was alarmed, too, but he recovered faster, rallying his trainer with some determined cries. Lauren's orders helped, too. "You're right. Lorin, time to go to work! Astonish Sharpedo to make it flinch, and then use your seed bomb and giga drain! Try to keep it away from Lapras until we can help her!"

Frillish still looked angry from being shocked, after all,and while cotton spore didn't seem to be necessary – she certainly wasn't risking getting closer yet – the upcoming attacks would only make her angrier.

And that was definitely the case. The shockwaves hit their mark, the ghostie looking significantly weaker already. The ghost was trembling with anger, eyes glowing from her rage, and she responded with a heavy amount of absorb. It did nothing to Parker in comparison to what Frillish had already suffered, but after those moves were delivered... She seemed to fade away.

The sailors all balked in bewilderment, looking around as if they might spot her. “Where did she go?” One of them asked. Another warned you to be careful. He didn't trust that she had fled.
“Look out! Behind you!” Following the sailor's words your Pokemon called out as well. Looming over you was the furious Frillish, veil-like tendrils reaching out for you. To paralyze you, to drag you to the depths, to shriek as she pried the pieces of your soul from your drenched corpse at the bottom of the sea.

What do you do?


There was no respite for the damned... no solace for the drowned. Austin realized what the Frillish's plan was the moment she appeared in front of him. To take away his soul from his waterlogged corpse. Why was it that everything tried to kill him? He came here to Minnao for a vacation after his last two hellish adventures. Literally, he was in what he could only call hell. And then after that he was almost decapitated. This was not the summer break he wanted. He just wanted to relax and fish, not get drowned. Oh well, he'd be dead if he didn't act soon. How about... Yes that would work. Being reckless was always fun. It would at least change the monotony his life had begun slipping into. He started to rummage through his bag, not making an effort to run from the Frillish. He didn't have much room to begin with. He then grabbed on of his empty Pokeballs, and started his orders.

"Parker, wait until she gets me. Then ensnare both of us in a Thunder Wave. If she wants to paralyze me... She's gonna have to go through that same fate! Then send out a Shock Wave. If you hit me too, I don't care. That should be enough... Enough to get her..." Austin contemplated for a second if this was the right decision. He would smash the Poke Ball in his hand onto her after the Mareep executed his actions. Though, there was no time for hesitation anymore, he could feel the jellyfish's tentacles start to entangle him.

The Sharpedo let out a fierce cry, obviously hungry and attracted to the scent of blood. The Lapras let out a small, meek noise, a bit afraid of the oncoming predator. Lorin's rallying call, though, quickly comforted it and seemed to give the Lapras back a sense of hope. It let out another noise, seeming to cheer on the pink Lotad. It was obvious that the shiny Pokemon was in no condition to battle, so it was doing its best to give the small lily pad its support.

With your orders in mind, the Lotad starts to turn around from the Sharpedo. He then swiftly jumps off and gives an astonishing tackle to the shark. He lets out a cry of pain, seeming to be hurt by his foe's Rough Skin. The Sharpedo seems a bit out of it, before switching its attention on Lorin. While the Astonish looked like it barely did any damage to the shark, it certain caused it to switch its aggression towards Lorin. It bit down on the Lotad, shaking him in its maw before throwing the Lotad out of the water and into a wall. He slinks down to the floor, taking a decently sized chunk of damage from the Sharpedo's Bite. Lorin, not willing to give up, starts to channel his inner grass-type, and formed seeds within his mouth. He shot them out like grenades, the Seed Bomb raining down on the Sharpedo. The shark lets out a cry in pain, and then stares down the Lotad in a look of pure hatred.

The Sharpedo's stare starts to get more and more intense, as if it was focusing its energy on taking down the Lotad. A red aura started to surround the Sharpedo, soon beign absorbed into the water and dark type's body. Lorin takes advantage of his foe boosting up by using Giga Drain. Green tendrils erupt from Lorin's pad, and wrap around the Sharpedo. They start to drain the shark's very life force, and replenish Lorin's. The Lotad starts to look more and more healthier, as if any of the damage he just took was nullified. The Sharpedo, not in a particularly happy mood after its life force being drained, starts to twist its body. A geyser of water erupts, carrying the Sharpedo out of the water. With the force of a torpedo, it slams into Lorin with an Aqua Jet. The shark then uses the momentum to bounce back into the water. The Lotad just laughs, barely taking any damage from the attack. You obviously had the edge in this battle, and your Lotad awaits his next set of orders.


Ironthunder:

Seeing you pass out, your Shuppet and Skarmory quickly realize the severity of the situation. However, Hope is also filled with uncontrollable rage. How dare that Gyarados do that to her trainer? Staring down the raging serpent, the Shuppet let out a Shock Wave. Electricity traced the air, before a wave of it flew towards the Gyarados. It let out a roar, and switch its attention to the Shuppet. With its teeth becoming shrouded in darkness, the serpent crunched its way through the shuppet, rapidly biting her like a chew toy before throwing her off to who knows where. Caeda, seeing this, quickly starts to move your unconscious body to safety. The Gyarados does not take notice of this, and starts to charge another Hyper Beam. Was this how things going to end...? Your adventure barely has even started... And this was your fate.

~~~

You wake up seeing a bright light. Were you dead? Were you in heaven. It was really hard to see anything, and your body was aching from pain. Did the dead feel pain? At least, those not cursed to feel their demise for the rest of eternity? You couldn't tell. The scent of chamomile wafted through the air, and you were on a soft bed. You could hear the crackling of a lit fire, and the soft pitter-patter of rain on a wooden roof. You weren't dead, that much you were sure of. You then hear a voice.

"Ah, finally awake? Be happy I found you when I did. I don't know what you did to piss off the King of Orta, but he was incredibly pissed. And if the king is mad, then we can't have people fish here. The conditions are simply too dangerous. Oh, excuse me, where are my manners. I'm Maie, Maie Ruddson. My husband and I live here in this quaint little shack near Orta Lake. We run a fishing business for both tourists and residents of the island who want to try freshwater fishing. Our son Mason also helps us out occasional, but he's been out on an ocean fishing trip with his friends for the past few days."

You turn your head to see a short, stout woman. Her dark, raven hair was tied back into a bun, and her skin was sun-kissed. She was relatively well toned, most likely due to fishing almost every day in her life. Her eyes were warm and motherly, and she held a cup of tea in her hands. She took a sip and looked over you. She let out a small chuckle, before leaving her seat.

"You're a greenhorn, aren't you? I can tell a fresh trainer from the sight alone. Anyways, where are my manners? What is your name lass?" You then tell her your name. "Liawe? An interesting name. Anyways, my Breloom and Jellicent were able to help subdue the king enough for me to bring you here. I'm not sure what you did, but it seemed you were reckless enough to cause the king to get mad. Every trainer needs to learn the best course of action when it comes with dealing with both people and Pokemon. And speaking of actions, you're going to atone for yours. Rest up for the night. Tomorrow I'm going to help you out in making an apology for the king. I will need you to go gather the ingredients. Luckily they're all in the little grove behind my house. Let me know if you need anything deary, just stay there and rest. Your Pokemon are being treated by my husband now. He's out in our shed. If you want to see them, let me know. I'll walk you over there," the woman lectures you as she starts to prepare food. You were luck enough to make it out of that situation with your life. Though, it seemed that you were in for a long day tomorrow. Best to rest up now, but your Pokemon must be worried sick.

What do you do?

At first Alice had been worried for Lorin. She had been stupid to forget the shark's rough skin, and on top of that, she had been convinced for a few long moments that the predator was going to bite her baby into pieces and devour him. "Lorin! I'm so sorry!" She called out, running over to the Pokemon as he slid down the cavern wall. The optimism of having Lapras cheer for them had been dampened, but not for long.

"Lotad, Lotad Lo!" The dual-type snapped, butting his head as if to shirk his trainer back. It was obvious why when Lorin fired off the planned seed bombs and then began to heal himself with the Sharpedo's energy. The battle was continuing, and Alice was unsafe where she was - as the aqua jet proved. At least she was out the way for that. Her Lotad laughs, a mockery in the enemy's face. As strong as it was, its typing was nothing against Lorin's.

"Okay, boy, I get it. I got you." Alice took a breath to try and cool off. They'd be fine. "Be careful of Lapras, but pull Sharpedo into a whirlpool! And while it's trapped, use more seed bombs! If you take anymore damage, use giga drain again!" She ordered. Lotad waddled a bit closer to the pool to ensure his aim, but stayed out of the water where Sharpedo could get its teeth on him more easily, and then began to execute his moves, round eyes narrowed with determination.

Though, it seemed that you were in for a long day tomorrow. Best to rest up now, but your Pokemon must be worried sick.

What do you do?
Liawe came to, which was a surprise in itself. Rolling to one side, realising she was in an actual bed, she became aware of two things. Firstly, a splitting pain in her head, reminding her of her trials previously. Secondly, she saw another person, who lectured her about pissing off the lake king. Ashamed, she looked away, and as the woman left to check on something, she curled up on the bed. Her squad had been annihilated by that monstrosity. Almost killed. As had she. What was supposed to be a calm, quiet picnic and a sketch had devolved into a near-death experience for her and her team. She took out the sketch she had begun at the lake. It was definitely one of her better ones, but now it was ruined. Rain-soaked, torn and scorched in places, it was fit for little more than fire-lighting. Setting the battered, half-finished sketch to one side, she rolled to one side, curled up and cried herself to sleep. They should have left her out there.

She was awoken the next morning by an inquisitive boop on the nose. Opening her eyes, she saw a vague green and black shape that resolved itself to be Calem, her intrepid little Caterpie, stood on the bed in front of her and wiggling happily like a madman. She then became aware of the goings-on elsewhere in the room, with Caeda stood at the foot of the bed, keeping watch, while Anna and Kaitlyn snuggled into the nook of her stomach caused by her being curled up. And finally, Hope floated around the room, moodier than Liawe had ever seen the spiteful little spectre. Swivelling round, Liawe stood, only to sit back down hard once more with a vicious bout of light-headedness, dizziness and nausea. Clearly Caeda had done some damage when she was slammed into her, and that wasn't going to go away any time soon. Slowly, and gingerly, Liawe stood, using a nearby chair for support. She wasn't going anywhere fast. Merely standing made the nausea flare up, and she reached for a nearby bucket, barely getting to it in time before she retched and puked a couple of times. Judging by the location of the bucket and the barely-identifiable stuff solidifying in the bottom, it wasn't the first time she'd had to do that on her stay at this place. Her Pokemon stared at her, worried. They'd never seen her like this before. And it probably won't be the last time, she thought grimly to herself. Settling into the chair slowly while she waited for the effects to recede, she was greeted by the rest of her squad in typical manner: Caeda rubbed her head against Liawe's right leg, while Kaitlyn hopped over and hugged the left leg. Anna floated over and snuggled on her head, while Calem crawled onto her shoulder. And Hope just floated around angstily. The defeat must have really gotten to her, Liawe realised. She told her team that perhaps they shouldn't have responded as violently as they did, 'for next time', and returned them all to their Pokeballs, which she put back in her bag after checking that everything was still there. It was, but to her dismay it appeared that her tent was utterly shagged. She'd need to scrape up the cash for a new one. Disheartened by the loss of what was basically her home, Liawe slowly pulled onon a spare change of clothes, remounted her armguard and slowly staggered outside, where she promptly threw up on the grass. Concussions, she decided once again, were not fun. Moving slowly so as to minimise the bouts of nausea, she stumbled around to the back of the cabin, so as to meet the mysterious old lady and collect the necessary ingredients to appease the 'King of the Lake'. Liawe just wanted to go home. Or at the very least, go and get a new one to go home to.

Instead, you and your talkative Pokemon put your noggins together and came up with a rather sensible plan.

The Snover escorted you as you slowly tracked the sounds of a worried Sewaddle and the rustling of leaves high up in the trees. As you both went, you made a point to shake your open bag, trying to lure the thief back in the direction it had come from. It took a bit of time – or so it felt when worrying for your poor Pokemon – but the criminal came back with a vengeance. The rustling increased tenfold, coming closer, and Benny braced himself. All of a sudden, Leif came hurtling towards you, wiggling his little limbs in distress; and then behind it shot out a blur of colour. Benny responded as quickly as he could, shooting off a powder snow attack. It didn't fully catch the attacker, but it did enough to surprise and hurt it, forcing the Pokemon to divert its course from you to the wayside. When it landed on the ground, paws furiously trying to remove snow from leaflike fur, you see it for what it is: an energetic Pansage.

What do you do?
As Anna continued to search for Leif and the unknown thief, she found herself getting more and more worried. It had been much too long since the Sewaddle had disappeared into the trees, or so she felt.

"I'm sure we'll find them soon." Benny said, almost as if reading his trainer's mind.

"Yeah." Anna replied with a nod, before stopping to give her bag another shake. Though she appreciated the Snover's words, the young trainer was unsure if she truly believed them.

Continuing to track the sounds of rustling leaves, it didn't take too much time before the sounds grew....louder?

"Here it comes!" Anna exclaimed, causing Benny to brace himself for what came next.

It was then that Leif came flying out of the tree branches, and right towards his trainer!

"Leif!" Anna exclaimed, her attention from the mysterious thief briefly stolen by the distressed bug.

Unlike Anna, Benny's attention was still fully on the unknown criminal, who shot out of the branches right behind Leif.

As quick as he possibly could, Benny let off a Powder Snow attack! While the attack didn't seem to score a direct hit on the Snover's target, it did manage to divert it's course to the side.

Upon landing on the ground, the thief's identity was revealed! It seemed to be...a strange, green Pokemon.
Anna had never seen a Pokemon like it before! Judging from it's reaction to the Powder Snow, as well as the plant on it's head, the young trainer guessed that it had to be a Grass type.

Now wasn't the time for that though, Anna realized. It wouldn't be long before the Grass type hurried off again..or maybe even attacked! They needed to make their move, and fast.

"Hey Benny, can you try talking to it?" See if it'll give back the missing stuff?" Anna asked. "I just want to see if we can avoid a conflict, right?"

"I can try." Benny nodded, before turning to the Pansage.
The Ice type then began to repeat Anna's request, this time in his native tongue. While the Snover wasn't all that confident that the grass monkey Pokemon would listen to him, he didn't want to be so quick to disobey his trainer's orders. At the same time though, if the Pansage tried anything funny, the Snover wouldn't hesitate to abandon Anna's idea of a peaceful resolution, in favor of a Powder Snow to the thief's face.

With Benny focusing on their target, Anna took the time to check up on Leif. After being pulled through countless branches, she couldn't help but feel worried for the Sewaddle.

Lorin started to waddle over to the water, ready to execute the next round of orders. He channels the currents within the water, starting to entangle the Sharpedo in a small Whirlpool. There was a good amount of distance from the shark and the Lapras, so the purple plesiosaur was safe from the Lotad's pull. The Shark, realizing it had nothing to reliably attack the Lotad with, just loud out a small snarl as it got swept away in the attack. Aiming carefully, the grass-type once again produces explosive seeds. The Seed Bomb flies into the Whirlpool, exploding and giving the Sharpedo a good knocking. The Sharpedo just stares at the Lotad, and decides to cut its losses. It swims away from the cove at high speeds, grumbles being heard from the Pokemon. The Lapras lets out a cheer, happy you were able to chase away the predator.

Lorin has gained 1 Level!

"Hey," Lauren started to speak. "Seems the coast is clear now. I'm going to go head out and try and get Nurse Joy. You'll be okay here by yourself?" You gave a nod. "Okay, good. I left some supplies next to where I was in case the gauze needs to be redressed. I believe in you Alice, protect this Lapras the best you can."

And with that, she started to run out of the cove. It was just you, Lorin, and the Lapras. You could see your Lotad and the wild Lapras starting to converse once more, and it eyed you every so often. While the Pokemon has warmed up to the Lotad, it seems a bit wary of you still. It makes sense, considering the state you had found it in. Anyways, what was with that harpoon. You could try to investigate it to get an idea of the poachers, or try and befriend the Pokemon with you some more.

What do you do?


Ironthunder:

As you make your way towards the back of the cabin, using the walls as support, you see the woman from yesterday chopping some logs. Her ax swung down, cleaving the wood in two. She picked up the logs, and tossed them into a pile. Putting down her ax, she swipes her head and notices you.

"Good morning Liawe," she smiled at you like a mother would her own child. "I hope you slept well. Anyways, I'm just creating some more firewood. That was a a decent storm last night, and some of our old logs got soaked. Anyways, I got a list of what I need you to go harvest. I've already gotten the meat prepared. As a carnivorous predator, Gyarados tend to eat smaller fish. Though, once in a while they don't mind some terrestrial food. I have a few Miltank steaks preserved in case the King gets wild... That usually calms him down. Anyways, I need you to go collect an ingredient. A jar of Honey. There's a honey tree just north of here. I checked stock today and I have the rest of what I need. The Combee there are a bit timid, so don't startle them. Usually they're fine with people taking their honey if you give them some berries," she explains, and then hands you an empty jar. It's small enough that you should be able to completely fill it up with honey.

With your task given to you, Maie returns to chopping firewood. Seems simple enough, head north, get honey, and then come back. Considering your injuries, things could be way worse. The sky was clear, and nothing out of the ordinary was in sight. Then again, yesterday seemed like a perfectly ordinary day for a picnic that ended in you almost being killed by a Gyarados.

What do you do?

The Shark, realizing it had nothing to reliably attack the Lotad with, just loud out a small snarl as it got swept away in the attack. Aiming carefully, the grass-type once again produces explosive seeds. The Seed Bomb flies into the Whirlpool, exploding and giving the Sharpedo a good knocking. The Sharpedo just stares at the Lotad, and decides to cut its losses. It swims away from the cove at high speeds, grumbles being heard from the Pokemon. The Lapras lets out a cheer, happy you were able to chase away the predator.

Lorin has gained 1 Level!

"Hey," Lauren started to speak. "Seems the coast is clear now. I'm going to go head out and try and get Nurse Joy. You'll be okay here by yourself?" You gave a nod. "Okay, good. I left some supplies next to where I was in case the gauze needs to be redressed. I believe in you Alice, protect this Lapras the best you can."

And with that, she started to run out of the cove. It was just you, Lorin, and the Lapras. You could see your Lotad and the wild Lapras starting to converse once more, and it eyed you every so often. While the Pokemon has warmed up to the Lotad, it seems a bit wary of you still. It makes sense, considering the state you had found it in. Anyways, what was with that harpoon. You could try to investigate it to get an idea of the poachers, or try and befriend the Pokemon with you some more.

What do you do?
"Good job, Lorin, you're my boy!" Alice complimented brightly, happy that her Pokemon had succeeded in chasing away the Sharpedo. She would have preferred a knock out to ensure it didn't return or try to rally some forces, but this would do. Lorin perked up, proclaiming his name with pride before waddling back to the Lapras to check on it and express a bit of pride about his victory. Not too much, though - he was a humble little thing, mostly.

"Oh, yeah." She said, nodding and saying little in response as if she were a Warrior of Light or something. Lauren's words meant a lot, especially as seeing the leftover medical supplies was daunting. Alice wasn't the most practical, and the idea of having to try and stop the bleeding and such was a bit intimidating. The way the Lapras kept eyeing her, she wondered if they were talking about her, but there wasn't really a way to ask. So, instead, able to sense the Pokemon's nervousness, Alice moved to investigate the harpoon. She probably wouldn't be able to figure out shit, but it was more for something to do than anything else.

Having staggered slowly around to the back of the house, she was tasked with something seemingly simple: Collecting Honey from the tree. The walk was long and arduous, never mind lonely. Clutching the small jar for all it was worth, Liawe finally made it to the designated tree. Leaves of amber, with Combee flitting around it. Busy as bees, and twice as dangerous, especially when aggravated. Reaching into her bag, she fumbled around a bit and pulled out her Berry Box, opening it to remind herself that she only had the one. She hoped fervently that these Bugs liked Aspear Berries, and that they weren't massively hungry. Holding the berry in one hand, she walked slowly towards the tree, seeing the thick, gloopy honey already oozing from within. All she needed was a jar full. She could do this. Jar in one hand, berry in the other. Keep it slow, don't startle them. How hard could it be?

Leaving the Lapras and Lorin to their own devices, you decide it would be in your best interests to investigate the harpoon. Even if you didn't figure anything out from it, it was at least something to do at this point. You look over the speak, noticing that the rope still seems firmly attached to the head of the spear. Did the Lapras break free from the grip of the harpoon? No, that didn't look right. You noticed that the end of the rope was black, and that there were scorch marks on the harpoon. A fire? That seemed to be a likely possibility. Yet, why didn't the Lapras look burned at all. That was most certainly... Strange.

The harpoon itself was made of metal, most likely iron. Besides the tip being caked in the blood of the shining water-type, nothing seemed to be out of the ordinary. There were some notch marks in it, but it looked to be from when it was loaded in. Besides the black spots similar to the rope, nothing seemed out of the ordinary with it. The only lead to whoever did this to the Lapras was the fire markings. Yet, it wouldn't be safe to leave the cove at this rate, wouldn't it? This was most certainly a conundrum. While you wanted to wait here for Lauren, you couldn't tell at this rate when she would be coming. The light from outside still stayed the same. The Lapras looked at you, mouth open. Was it hungry again? Already? It certainly must've not been that long since you gave it the PokeBlocks from before. Though, that did beg the question. How long was the Lapras here?


Ironthunder:

You meekly made your way towards the honey tree, a bit wary of the buzzing Combee around you. The last thing you needed was being swarmed by them. You hear a buzz, and one of the Combee come up to inspect you. You can see the red dot characteristic of a female one, and she sniffs you. Her three faces buzz to each other, determining if you're intentions are pure with their honey. Noticing the Aspear berry, the little bee takes a hefty bite out of it with the dotted face. Deeming you worthy, the Combee leads you towards the honey tree.

The tree itself was large, and seemed to hum from all of the buzzing of the Combee hive. The Combee who lead you to the tree hovered over you, watching you with a certain look. One misstep here and you'd probably be stung by her. Carefully, you put the empty jar on the oozing bark of the tree, and watch as the yellow goop slowly filled the jar. As it got full, you pull the jar away from the tree, a small amount of honey dripping off the side. The Combee let's out a happy buzz, seeming to be happy with how much honey you took. She gives you a little nudge, as if to tell you to head back. Putting the lid on the jar, you made your way back.

The walk through the woods back was quite uneventful. You could swear you could hear a buzz every so often, but when you turned around you heard nothing. It was a nice, comfy walk through nature. After your encounter with the king yesterday, this was a sorely needed break. The Pokemon around you gave you a curious glance as you walked past, but returned to their usual business afterwards. Not long you made your way back to the little shack.

"Hello there Liawe!" You heard Maie shout, the stout woman sitting next to an even larger pile of logs. "Seems you were successful. I'll take that honey from you. Seems you have someone who wants to have a little chat."

Confused, you look behind you to see the Combee from before. Did she want to see the honey was delivered safely? You hand Maie the jar of honey, and the Combee gives a happy buzz. She flies around you, happily buzzing. Seems the little bug has already taken a liking to you. With a little convincing, it wouldn't be hard to have her join your team.

What do you do?

Liawe approached the tree, allowing one of the inquisitive Combee to take her Aspear Berry as she did. The diminutive bee seemed pleased enough with the offering, and guided her to the tree to collect the precious amber goop. Closing off the jar, the Combee prompted for her to leave, which she did both quickly and gladly. She had no intention of aggravating the locals again, especially after that shitshow with the Gyarados. Returning to Maie, Liawe handed over the honey to the woman, who took it from her, before pointing out that the Combee had had followed her back. Tentatively, Liawe raised her hand to the Combee, allowing it to lick off the berry juice that had leaked onto her hand when it had been eating from there earlier. "You're a nice one, aren't you?" Liawe asked, as she fumbled for a Pokeball from her bag. "How'd you like to join me for some adventures? You certainly seem like you'd enjoy it." She placed the Pokeball in her open hand and awaited the creature's response, preparing to capture it if it agreed.

Alice went and picked up the harpoon, being careful in how she handled it. For one thing, she was probably tampering with evidence (but hey, Lauren did it first!!!) and secondly, Alice didn't want the Lapras to think she was going to have another go at it. The rope was still attached to the item, and that along with the scorch marks was making her noggin hurt. Lapras didn't seem to be burned at all, so had the harpoon already sustained damage before it was used or was it just that the burn hadn't been enough to even show on the Lapras? It was part water type and naturally a tough Pokemon. So, maybe...?

What did she know? The trainer set the harpoon down after a bit, deliberating on what to do. It was a lead, however vague, but Alice had promised to stay put and she planned to adhere to her word. It didn't seem like long had passed. Lorin called for her, and Alice glanced up, seeing that the Pokemon wanted more to eat. She grinned. "Yeah? You hungry again? Well, we know you like something sweet. Gimme a second." She meandered over to her bag, crouching down to rifle through again. This time, Alice produced a Black Pokeblock, expression wavering. "I know it's bland, but here. I have nothing sweet left..." Alice explained awkwardly, "Lorin, could you ask Lapras what else it likes and help pick some things out? I don't want to feed it something that upsets it..." She explained, hand outstretched for the Pokemon. Lorin nodded, explaining himself to his fellow water-dweller as he waddled over to his trainer's bag to nose through. "Even pokefood would be fine, honestly."

The Lapras ate the black Pokeblock, at this point not caring about its bland flavor. At this point it makes sense, the whole lot of you have been in the cave for a while. At this time you can start to see the sun setting. The water turned from a crystalline blue to a vibrant orange. Krabby could be seen emerging towards the front of the cave, and they started to blow bubbles. The bubbles drifted in and popped all around you, but they didn't feel harmful at all. It was pretty, considering the how simple it was. Though, you were here for quite a long time. Surely it wouldn't have taken Lauren this long to return, right?

Speak of the devil, and he shall appear. Lauren soon appeared at the front of the cove, looking uneasy. Before she can speak, you see another figure behind her. You hear a low, gruff voice, but can't discern what was being said. You then see an older man, and he shoves Lauren into the cove. You run over to her, hiding the harpoon within your clothes, and he looks at the both of you in disgust.

"Girly here said my prey was here. She wouldn't tell me but-" he shows his pistol, " I had a way to make her talk. Now listen here girls. Gimme that Lapras, and you don't get shot. Got it?"

Now this situation was a risky one, though at the very least that what happened. You could see a burn mark on the man's right arm. So his ship was the one that tried to poach the Lapras here. You take a quick glance at Lorin and the Lapras, and both of them are huddled together in fear. He had a gun, you had a pretty rusty spear and a Lotad. it would be a miracle if everyone got out of this unscathed.


Ironthunder:

The Combee looks at the ball, and gently taps it. The Pokeball flies out of your hand and plops onto the ground, wriggling in place. It shakes rapidly, as if the Combee is stuck between the decision of being captured or not. With one last shake, a red light emits from the ball and it lets out a loud noise. You go to pick it up, and examine it for a bit. The Pokemon didn't seem that it would be coming out unless you let it. A sort of... anti-climactic way to catch a new Pokemon, but it was still a new friend none the less.

Congratulations, you have caught a Lv. 7 female Combee!

With that all said and done, you wonder where Maie had gone. Smelling something delicious coming from the house, you go inside and see a giant pot simmering. The woman adds in honey you gathered, and turns the pot from a boil to a simmer. The sweet smell of herbs and spices wafts around the house. After a while, the sauce seems the be complete, and Maie begins to lather the meat with it. The sounds of meat being seared echoed through the house, and the offering was complete.

With the offering dish completed, Maie hands it to you. You're instructed to place it at the lake side, and sit next to it as the King eats it. Maie told you she would be in the distance in case things went awry. So you did as you were told, and put the plate on the shore. You waited as the ground started to tremble, and the Gyarados from yesterday looked at you with murder before seeing the plate.

The serpent bent down, and started to eat the plate. It looked at you while doing so, sizing you up. Giving a respectable grunt, the King of Orta Lake retreated back into the depths. After a few moments, the Pokemon returns with something in its maw. A pearl. How lovely.

"Those are worth about $400 at a Pokemart. I know it might not be enough to pay for a new tent. Anyways kid, you're done here. The king has been sated, and we can go back to our daily lives. Oh yeah here, some of the left over honey. Anyways, next time you're here, make sure you watch what both you and your teammates are doing," Miae yells out as she walks towards you. She then shakes your hand and pushes you towards the town. Your first adventure has come to an end, and there was more to explore in this word than the Minnao Islands.



Rewards:
1 Lv. 7 Female Combee
1 Pearl
1 Jar of Honey

With your nest post you are officially done with your adventure. Thank you for adventuring at the Islands~

You take a quick glance at Lorin and the Lapras, and both of them are huddled together in fear. He had a gun, you had a pretty rusty spear and a Lotad. it would be a miracle if everyone got out of this unscathed.
Alice's expression once again lit up, happy to appease the Lapras. "Oh, good, you like it!" She remarked cheerily, although her expression faltered when Lorin began talking away to her. It was obvious he was trying to express something, stubby legs indicating towards the outside. At first she hoped to see Lauren, but then realised that a lot of time had passed. "Damn... Time flies when you're having fun." Her voice oozed sarcasm. Lapras must have been hungry. Quite frankly, the fact it wasn't dead was amazing enough.

"Oooh, Krabby! So kyuute!" The young woman crouched once more, admiring the bubbles that floated through the air. "Y'all look like my lil Kenji-kun, yes you do!" She hadn't brought him, though. Her orange menace was back at home for the moment. Alice spent time otherwise wandering and trying to keep warm, getting increasingly anxious until Lauren finally arrived. Something wasn't right, though. The guy would be 'not right' - shady as fuck, in fact.

"Oh, god, Lauren!" Alice ran over, Lotad beginning to follow. She took the other girl's hand, holding it comfortingly, tensing up at the sight of the gun. Lorin froze. Shit. She took a moment, stunned, mind racing. They had to figure this out safely, or they were all dead - Lapras included, probably. "Look, neither of us have caught Lapras. We were just trying to heal it up, or it'll probably die. We'll go over here, and we'll let you do whatever you want to do, and nobody gets hurt." She assured, and with that, Alice began to very slowly lead Lauren backwards with her. She kept her eyes on the armed villain, steps deliberate, only occasionally glancing back to make sure that she didn't trip them on anything. "Come on, mister. Come on. Over here." Alice added to her Lotad, who shakily obeyed, following his trainer's lead.

Alice had her thoughts, though. She let Lauren go, shaking too, and crouched down to seemingly pack up her bag of anything left out and apparently comfort Lorin. She scooped him up, kissing him as if to help them both, baby voice overexaggerated and babying and quiet. Tell the Lapras to dive. Use water pulse and seed bomb. If they could injure the gunner and drop him in the water, with or without use of the harpoon... The Sharpedo might have something to snack on after all.

A horrible fate, but she'd rather him than any of them. So. That was the plan.

You whisper your plan to Lorin, who seems to instantly understand what you're going for. You put the Lotad down, and go back to make sure Lauren was okay. The man didn't expect anything, and he started to walk towards the Lapras. At this point your Lotad was already back with its friend, telling the larger Pokemon of your plan. You could see the fear in the Lapras's eyes dissipate, and in return a sense of determination started to swell up in its eyes. It was ready to do what it needed to do.

"Ah, such a beauty," the man spoke, examining the Lapras. "You'll fetch a fine price for sure..."

It was time to put your plan into motion. As he got closer to the water's edge, you gave quick nod to Lorin. The Lotad tapped the Lapras, and it understood it's part. The Lapras dived under the water, shocking the man for a split second. At that point Lorin jumped up and assaulted his face with a point blank Seed Bomb. The explosive force of the seeds temporarily blinded the man, who started to flail around and stepping back from the water. Lorin continued his assault, giving the man a water pulse to the face. At that point he started to understand he was getting ganged up on, and tried wiping his eyes to get clearer vision. At this point every second mattered, or someone would get shot.

You ran up to the man, brandishing the harpoon. While it was a precautionary measure, as you got closer to him you realized you wouldn't be able to simply overpower him, even in this state. Just as you get close to him, he turns around to face you. You could see his face filled with fury, and he had a good idea of where you are. This was your only chance, and you thrust the harpoon towards him. BOOM! You feel a sharp pain in your abdomen, but at this point the adrenaline pumping through your veins makes it seem like a non issue. You see your mark hit true, and see the harpoon jutting out of his chest.

The man starts to stumble back into the water, and falls in. The Lapras reemerges, and uses it's head to propel the bleeding man towards the entrance of the cove. At this point you can see water start to ripple again, and the Sharpedo from before returns, happy that it's finally getting a meal. You hear the screams of the man as the Sharpedo devours him, tearing his body limb from limb. You decide to look onward, making sure that everyone else was okay. Seeing no one else unharmed, you smile before falling forwards. Everything fades to black.


~~~

You wake up to blinding light, and it takes a few moments to adjust to the lighting. Your side hurt immensely, and you meekly try looking around to see what was going on. As your vision cleared, you see Lauren peering over you, holding your Lotad in hand. The two of them had worrying expressions on their faces. You give them both a smile, and they look like they're flooded with relief.

"You were brave there Alice... A lot braver than I ever would've been," Lauren started to speak, setting your Lotad down next to you. "I was jumped by that man on the way to the Pokemon Center... Seemed he was tracking that Lapras for quite a bit. Anyways, after you passed out, the Lapras offered to put you on its back. I dragged you onto it, and the Lapras carried you to shore. It wouldn't let anyone touch you until I came back with the medics. The Lapras is now in the aquatic department of the Pokemon Center, and you're here on the island's hospital.. . It seems you've won over that Lapras's heart. You certainly have won over mine."

Hearing how the events transpired, you can't help but smile. Just one simple act of bravery was at times more than enough to win over a person or a Pokemon. Especially if you risk your life. Your nurse soon came in, and explained to you what had happened to you. At least, happened to your body. You were told to rest for a few weeks once you were given the clear to leave. It was miraculous in itself that the gun shot didn't cause more damage.

"Oh yeah, Alice, once you get given the clear, do you want to go see the Lapras?" Lauren asked.

It was certainly a question to ponder.
