The owl locked its talons around Critter and tried to take off with him--but Critter was just a little too heavy for it.
"H-hey!" I finally shouted. "You jerk! Let my rock go!"
"Hoot!" the wild Pokemon shrieked, unperturbed.
I scowled at it, but quickly flicked out my hand in an order, "Freya, teach it some manners!"
The Pidgey flew off my shoulder and flapped towards the foe.
"Gust, now!" I ordered.
Freya started flapping her wings furiously, whipping up a fierce wind that tore at the owl. It was blown backwards, causing it to release Critter. The little rock quickly scurried to my side and hid behind my leg.
The Hoothoot didn't seem to happy with that escape. After recovered its feet, it hooted furiously. Then flew towards Freya with a Peck attack. When the attack landed, Freya let out a painful, frustrated screech. Without waiting for my orders, Freya flapped her wings fiercely once again--but not in a Gust attack. This time, she summoned up a Whirlwind. Before I knew it, the Hoothoot was caught up in a swirling vortex of wind and carried out of sight.
I frowned disappointingly. Well... so much for getting another Pokemon...
Freya flew back to my shoulder, looking rather pleased with herself.
"All right," I sighed. "At least we're back together."
Glancing down at Critter, I scolded, "Don't you ever go off running again!"
The rock kicked its foot abashedly.
"Let's get back to the main road," I said, turning around. And, we did.
"Hello?" you hear someone say from right behind you. You jump a little and turn around.
"Oh, sorry! I didn't mean to freak you out. It is
pretty freaky under here, isn't it?" A teenage girl is standing before you. She looks kind of unkempt... as if she's been out in the forest for a while.
"I'm Elaine," she says, reaching out to shake your hand. "You're the first person I've seen in a while. You wouldn't happen to have the time would you? It's so dark, I can't tell anymore. I was supposed to be in Navi Town by yesterday but I got completely sidetracked. You couldn't point me in the right direction?" she asks flusteredly, finally taking a breath.
