The rocks were the size of baseballs, and the branch about 4 foot tall, 2 across, covered in leaves. I laid the branch on the ground, and bashed the rocks together. After a few times I finally created a spark, which caught on one of the leaves. It burnt slowly, and I got on my hands and knees and blew, making the flame bigger. Damn I wish I had a Torchic or Charmander now. The flames grew bigger, and eventually engulfed the entire branch. I could feel my hand starting to burn, but knew that I had to deal with it.
"Kirlia! Magical leaf from the flaming branch!" I said. I felt the burning leaves pulled off the branch, as the flew towards the beast in the creek. I heard a spine tingling scream as all the leaves hit home. The glow of the leaves, plus the fire, were harming the beast. After a few seconds of screaming, it descended into the water. I stood back, hoping this would be the end of it all (hint hint)...
As soon as the light from the fire gets going, the beast begins to recoil. It thrashes wildly, its tentacles hovering in the air, unwilling to come any closer to the flame. The fiery leaves spin toward it. It lets out a horrible cry. As the leaves hit, they burst straight through the shadower creature. There is no sound, but wherever the light hits, there is a gap in the shadows. Tentacles are sliced off and disintegrate and finally the shadow monster is nothing more.
You look down at Pikachu. Its eyes flicker open. It jumps to its feet and looks around. Its eyes are a strange colour, deep purple like the mist. It seems to be back to full energy. When it spots you, sparks crackle from its cheeks. It frowns a little. "Chu!" it cries, getting down into a battle stance.
