Not really sure where to post this but... yeah. Here's the start of the tale again. Enough said :-X. ~~~Chapter 1 part A~~~ “Keep running,” was the only thing the girl told herself. An Oddish was in her arms, breathing heavily the girl walked into a clearing that housed a cliff face. The girl stuck out like a sore thumb, so hiding was out of the question. She had light brown hair that fell to the middle of her back; she wore a light lavender shirt, a tank-top to be exact, under her lavender jacket with dark blue shorts that were just longer then her purple skirt that fell just above her knees, a pair of purple sneakers and lavender socks covered her feet. She was tall like her brother, five foot two, to be precise. “Ha, looks like you got no where to run now little girl,” said a woman’s voice. Startled the teen flipped around to see who spoke. She had sharp green eyes that looked like emeralds, her face was bordered with blonde hair that looked pale in the moonlight, and she wore a grin that covered the lower half of her face. There were four of them, three men and one woman, wearing the same uniform, Black in main color with a yellow belt and a pair of yellow gloves and boots. In the same shade of yellow an L went from the left shoulder down to the bottom of the shirt and went across that. “Oh yeah, we’ll see about that,” the teen said trying to sound brave, but her voice quivered with fear. “I hate it when they struggle,” the first grunt said revealing a pokéball in his hand. “Yeah me too,” the second said also having a pokéball. “Why don’t we just take it by force?" the third said pulling out a pokéball and pointing at the Oddish. “No,” the woman said to the others “we might injure the target,” she put her arm out, to stop them. “So you must be the leader,” the teen girl said, still holding the Oddish close. “Yeah, so?” the leader said in a sharper tone, pulling out her pokéball and she threw it. It hit the ground with the other three, releasing the pokémon inside. Four flashes of white light revealed a Tyranitar, a Kangaskhan, an Ursaring, and an Exploud. “Four on one that’s hardly fair!” A strong male voice said out of the teen girl’s sight. With a soft thud a teenager landed on the ground in front of the teen. The second teen had short black hair and dark brown eyes. He wore a white T-shirt with a black buzz saw pattern on it, a black jacket with a white swirl pattern, his black pants and black shoes look like they blended together. He held a pokéball in his right hand and his left hand was in his jacket pocket. “Hey are you alright?” He asked the teen girl. Uh, yeah I am thanks,” the girl said looking down at her shoes not realizing see blushed. The Oddish looked at her trainer smiling. “Get out of our way!” the leader said in a very sharp tone, "Tyranitar! Use Crunch!” she said to her pokémon. With a roar it ran toward the boy, causing the ground to shake, it opened its mouth its mouth so that it could bite him. “Alright now, Zac you’re up! Come out and use protect!” the new teen said throwing the pokéball, releasing the pokémon within. It was white and blue with red claws. It had a mean expression on its face; grinning wickedly it threw its arms across its chest, causing its fur to stand up on end. The Tyranitar bit the mongoose on the shoulder. Causing the Tryanitar to howl in pain, apparently the pokémon’s fur became sharp as needles, leaving the Zangoose uninjured. “This is getting irritating. Tyranitar! Use Stone edge!” the leader said in a venomous tone. “Take down that Zangoose”! The Tyranitar stomped on the ground causing rocks to break loose. The Tyranitar’s eyes glowed with a black aura, as the rocks started glowing with the same aura. Hurtling and the Zangoose the rocks were moving so fast that the teen girl could hear the air billow past them. “Dodge it!” the Zangoose’s trainer said through gritted teeth. The mongoose weaved in and out of the rocks, crushing some of them with his claws, the rocks crumbled to dust as they hit the ground or the mongoose’s claws. “Awesome! Now use close combat!” the trainer said waving his arm for a more dramatic atmosphere. The teen girl gasped when see saw a scar running vertically from his middle finger to the beginning of his wrist. The Zangoose ran forward on all fours running up a tree, and then jumping from the crown it hit the green behemoth with a series of kicks and punches causing it to fall creating a cloud of dust the Tyranitar fell to the ground. “C’mon! Let’s go!” The boy said grabbing the other teen’s wrist, causing her to blush again. Being pulled see dropped her Oddish but the Zangoose, running on all fours again, caught her on his back. After ten minutes of running they came to a clearing that had camping gear belonging to the boy. “That was close,” the boy said, panting. “Oh yeah my name’s Megan Koal,” the teen girl said to the boy, also panting, looking down again. “Megan, that’s a nice name. I’m Kaos Torque, so how did you get mixed up with Team Lancer?” Kaos said rather hesitantly. “Thanks for saving me Kaos. So who exactly is Team Lancer?” Megan said to her hero Kaos. “They’re an organization who steals pokémon for profit,” Kaos started explaining. “Then they kill the pokémon’s trainer”. “So they were going to steal Petal and then kill me?” Megan asked in disbelief, looking at her Oddish. “Yes they were,” Kaos told her “just like my parents”. “I’m so sorry to hear that,” Megan said, putting a hand to her mouth. Moving her hand so she could talk, “I got separated from my family about three years ago”. Petal started to shiver. “Oh I’m so sorry Petal! Return,” Megan said returning the weed pokémon to the pokéball that was her home. “Good idea, Megan. Zac! Return,” Kaos said returning the pokémon to its pokéball. “Oh that’s too bad!” said a very harsh voice from behind them. It was Team Lancer again. “Tyranitar, Blow that girl away with your dark pulse!” she told her pokémon, pointing at Megan. The Tyranitar roared in response before a black orb formed in its hands. Thrusting the orb in to the ground it exploded with a dark energy. But, instead of a radial blast the pulse was directed straight for Megan. It was an ‘Arrow’ of shadows; so to speak, it rushed forward and hit her in the gut. She hit a tree causing her to black out. A human silhouette could be seen through the dust. When it cleared nothing was there. “Where did they go?” a Lancer grunt said to his admin named Alexis. “I don’t know where they went!” Alexis snapped at the grunt who spoke. “Pull out, we’re leaving!” The admin barked at the grunts. “Yes, Ma’am!” the grunts said synchronized, returning their pokémon. The admin returned her Tyranitar to its pokéball, before leaving the clearing with her troops. ~~~~~~~ Kaos left the forest with the unconscious girl in his arms. Running to Rustboro Medical as fast he could, with out making Megan’s head bounce up and down. The sliding doors opened as he walked to the waiting area. Breathing heavily he set Megan down on a purple plastic chair, he walked to the counter and was handed some forms to fill out. It didn’t take to long to fill the forms and get a room for his new friend. “Right this way” the nurse said as she stood up and walking to a door leading to a hallway. Picking up Megan, he walked over to the nurse and she opened the door she walked quickly down the hall to a room marked ‘181’. “The doctor will be with you shortly,” she said smiling at Kaos. “Thank you,” was all he could say as he entered the room. It had white walls with black and white tile. The bed could be shifted into a sitting position so the patient could eat. The sheets were purple with ‘get well soon!’ sewn in with lavender thread. He set Megan down on the bed and brushed the hair out of her face. “I’m Dr. Harris, so what happened to her?” a strong voice said. Kaos looked up and saw that the voice's owner was reading something from the clipboard in his hand. He had gray eyes that shined behind his rectangular glasses. His face was freshly shaved and had a toothy grin plastered on it. “She was hit by a Tyranitar’s dark pulse, and then she hit a tree causing her to fall unconscious.” Kaos explained to the doctor. “Well, nothing seems broken. We’ll need to keep her here for about a month, but it’s odd you don’t normally see Tyranitar around here.” Dr. Harris said looking at Megan then looking back at his clip board. “Why will you need to keep her here?” Kaos asked standing up to look at the doctor in the eye, a hint of bitterness in his glare. “Well based on the information you gave us she was a target of Team Lancer, so to keep her safe we need her to stay here so we can keep an eye on things,” he said to Kaos, Walking over to the bed to tap a device above the bed’s frame. Kaos assumed the device was an x-ray of some sort. “Are you telling me the truth?” the doctor asked turning to Kaos. “Yes I am,” Kaos growled at the doctor, looking at Megan his eyes full of worry. Kaos then visited Megan every day for a month, while the whole incident made its way to the back of their minds. "I've got to make a call, so I'll be right back," Dr. Harris said as Kaos looked back to Megan. He closed the door as he went through; Harris quickly dialed in a number calling a friend. After ringing a few times a sharp voice flowed out of the device. "Hello, who is this?" the person on the other end asked, wincing Harris thought how to ask the question. "What did the kids that prevented the capture look like?" he asked readying himself. "One had almost all black on with white swirls, the other wore mostly lavender," Alexis said in the tone that Harris knew so well. "I'm coming back to headquarters," Harris stated before ending the call. ~~~~~~~ On the last day of Megan's stay Kaos came as per usual. But this time he brought a few gifts. Kaos softly knocked on the door. "Come in," a voice said through the door. He turned the door knob and with a soft click it opened, he found a nurse changing the flowers in the bed side table. "Good morning, Kaos," Megan said greeting him as he entered. A soft smile came from deep within Kaos. I'll leave you two alone," the nurse said giggling, as she walked out the door closing the door as she went. "I have presents," Kaos said holding up a leather pouch and picture, handing them to Megan. "Oh thank you!" Megan said enthusiastically taking the items. She opened the pouch first, a small stone fell out. It was in the shape of a small sun, and orange in color. It gave off a warm glow like a sun; Megan held it glancing at Petal's pokéball. "Ooh, A sun stone thanks!" She said warmly. She put it back in the pouch and brought up the picture so she could see it. It was stunning, the leaves were just turning golden orange and bug type pokémon could be seen through the trees, as the autumn season was starting to settle on Hoenn. "I took that a few days ago, I'm not very good at 'capturing the moment' so to speak", Kaos said looking out the window. Right on time Kaos thought as he saw a silhouette of a bird on the horizon. "Kaos, can you come here please?" Megan asked as she lowered the picture. "Sure," Kaos said looking away from the window. He walked toward the bed to see what Megan needed, not noticing that Megan was blushing. "See that painting," Meagan asked Kaos pointing to the painting. It was a painting of a Komodo dragon that was rather large and covered in dust.
