Re: PEFE-B: The Part Where He Kills Us
Somewhere in the Surface
A large purple Pokémon with spikes and yellow-ish spots is curled besides a pile of rubble, sleeping well past the nighttime, as it has been the trend the last two or three days. Maekrite is content dreaming with home and greenery.
And as has been the trend the last two or three days, his dreams are cut short when a smaller furball appears out of nowhere, climbs up the Nidorino's head and growls to his ears.
Silentran♂: <Hey, listen!> -- pokes.
Maekrite -grumbles: <…ngggg, five more minutes, Crerah... we have time for four more kits...>
Silentran♂ tilts head, decides to poke harder a couple of times, not for much effect, and finally resorts to what usually works - nibbling the Nidorino's ear.
Maekrite: <…Ouch!> -- wakes up, looks around -- <awww~>
The Nidorino yawns and pushes the Nidoran♂ away, the smaller Pokémon doing a backflip to land on the ground. After the two Pokémon greet each other with some soft growls and rubbing against each other, the Nidorino takes a look around.
Maekrite: <Uhm... what happened?>
Silentran♂: <You overslept, as usual... but I found something!>
The Nidoran turns tail and tries to quickly run away, but finds himself hanging in mid-air as he has just been picked up by the Nidorino; after flailing for a moment, the Nidoran lets out a sigh and is then let down.
Maekrite -raises a paw: <Can't run around without care! This is not the forest, it's a place of metal and lasers and a friggin' AI trying to kill us!>
Silentran♂ -frowns: <But I checked. That's why I found something. Come on, there are no turrets or cranes around here yet.>
Maekrite: <We should have some food before exploring.>
The two Pokémon stare at each other for a moment, probably mentally infighting over who is the boss in the team (or two). When Silentran♂ fans ears out and Leers, Maekrite simply chuckles and stomps on him with a leg.
Silentran♂: <Let go!> -- flails.
Maekrite: <Don't think so. Now, you're supposed to be under my care so we do as I say.>
Silentran♂: <I'm your trainer and I'm the one who knows this place.> -- growls, flails more.
Maekrite: <I don't suppose you have thumbs or a Trainer card to prove that?>
Silentran♂ looks up at the Nidorino, buffs and then stops flailing. He mumbles something and then flattens his ears.
Maekrite: <Thought so...>
The Nidorino finally lets his charge stand up, then the two spend a couple of minutes cleaning themselves and shaking off some dirt and rubble. When that is done, they walk together along the pile of rubble, inspecting the place looking for any sign of danger or of activity of that particularly annoying AI. After they've cleared the area out, they trot downhill and head towards one of the settlements the mons have made in the island, hoping to find food and equipment before they resort to anything else.
