The Legendary Awakening [ SU Thread ] A Pokemon Roleplay Sign Up Thread | Discussion Thread (Credit to FairyWitch for the banner) ☙ Seven Days Prior to Necrozma Returning ❧ Desert Resort, Unova Two young adults rushed through the desert, their breathing labored as they ran as fast as they possibly could through the twisting sands. A loud buzzing was following them, causing their ears to ring as they ran. The shorter of the two adults, blue hair waving behind her, turned her head to face the buzzing, seeing only thousands of small insects rushing at them. "Luna! Don't stop running!" A masculine voice called to her, causing her attention to shift back to the swirling sands in front of her. His breathing was becoming faster as he ran, being careful as to where he placed his feet as he ran. One small misstep could lead to him falling... and he certainly didn't want to see what these insects did once they were upon him. "Kar! Kartana!" The insects screamed, seemingly in unison --- becoming one voice as they continued trying to catch their prey. The young girl kept running, hearing her blood pounding in her ears. She could hardly hear the scream of the insects as she ran alongside her companion, trying desperately to reach their destination. "There!" She called out, pointing towards a large castle in the distance. Her eyes lit up as she ran, jumping into the air as she screamed out a cry that was anything but human. The man did the same, jumping up and landing back on the ground as a large white lion. He let out a roar, and the woman never fell back down --- in her wake floated a large blue bat with piercing pink eyes. "GET THEM," Screamed the insects, shouting loudly as they rushed towards the transformed duo. The bat swooped down, grabbing hold of the lion and flying with aggressive speed towards the deteriorating castle. She flew in with haste, slamming herself and the lion into the quicksand pits within. She could still hear the insects behind them as they flew through the halls, finally arriving at the deepest point of the temple. "Go! Come on Luna!" Roared the lion, excitement and fear in his voice as they quickened their pace and slammed into the back wall at the deepest point of the temple, disappearing instantly. The insects froze, before slamming themselves into the back wall, only to bounce off or shatter as they rebounded off the wall. Confusion rose in their eyes as they prodded the wall, trying to figure out where they had gone. "Lord Necrozma was right... these two are crafty." Spoke the bugs again, exiting the temple. "We'll get them next time. Come, we must prepare for his arrival." They flew high into the sky, disappearing into the horizon. --- Beatrice Calder Kyurem Icirrus City, Unova "Help me up..." Murmured Beatrice as she looked at her vixen companion, her hands gripping at the fence on their property. Khione rolled her eyes, looking the the tall fence in front of them. "First, you make me jump out a window with you... now you want to jump the fence..? Why didn't we just quietly sneak away? You know that Dee can sleep through anything." Beatrice turned to the fox, glaring at her as she grabbed at the fence once again. "Even if she's asleep... her parents will tell her I left when she wakes up. I don't want her to worry about me... besides, we need to get to this Hall of Legends or whatever." Beatrice sighed, forming an ice spike with her hand and jamming it into the fence. "It's just easier this way... besides, you know I hate goodbyes." The fox gave her a pitied look, watching as she used the ice spikes to get over the fence. "Fine..." Khione let out a sigh, looking at the tall fence in front of her as she heard Beatrice land with a soft thud on the other side. "Now, how do I get over?" She asked, tilting her head. Beatrice dug through her pockets, producing the Love Ball that usually contained Khione and recalling her into it. Once she was inside, she released her vixen companion beside her, looking down at her with a smirk. "So... where to Kio?" Beatrice asked, looking down at the fox. "Um. I hate to say it, but I'm still not sure... the scent of the place I've seen in your dreams is so... familiar." Explained Khione, looking up at her master and sitting on her haunches. "I feel like it's close... but I couldn't tell you where." Beatrice sighed, crossing her arms and looking at the route ahead of her. "That's.. fine. Let's just walk, maybe something will come to us." She looked back at the house, sighing. "I'm sorry, Dee. But I have to go..." She murmured, beginning her long journey to the Hall of Legends. --- Veronique "Vera" Maoz Keldeo Strange House, Lentimas Town, Unova Vera packed her bag with the essentials, tying up her pack and slinging it over her shoulders. Keeb looked up at her, his hands trembling slightly as he watched his master. It was beginning to sink in that this was all very very real, and that him and Vera could be in real danger, more danger than they had ever been in with the Wildfang Clan. He shook at the thought of the Clan, realizing that because they had to travel their chances of being caught by the clan was higher than it had been in years. "V-vera," he began to speak, his voice trembling slightly. "This is going to be very dangerous... not only this whole Hall of Legends business, but there's a chance the Wildfang will find us." Keeb put his paws together, as if to plead with his master. "We need to be careful." "I'm not an idiot, Keeb!" She exclaimed, somewhat irritated. "Besides, careful is my middle name." She smirked, patting Keeb's head and straightening herself out. "I want to go down the mountain first, if someone wanted to hide something... that seems like the perfect place to hide! I bet the Hall is there!" She smiled, closing her eyes and giving a triumphant cheer. "We're doomed..." Murmured Keeb, rubbing his paws on his face.
