Re: Journey from the Valley [RP]
“Got any better ideas?" the glaceon was saying. "No? Then tough it up.”
It took a moment for Bladestrike to realize that the pokemon was talking to him. Somewhat startled, he looked in her direction, pure confusion crossing his face. He couldn't tell if this was a pokemon he was supposed to know or not, but she certainly didn't sound like a friend. A little taken aback, he stepped backward a few paces, still keeping his eyes on her. "We should stay here for a while," he stated loudly, though he sounded uncertain. All he knew was that he didn't know if he'd be able to keep up if he left, and this pokemon did not seem to understand why it was hard. He shook his head stubbornly. "It's not that easy!" he shouted, suddenly sounding angry, but it only lasted a moment before his fearful look returned, and, suddenly looking afraid of the glaceon, he shuffled back toward the tree.
Nightfang gave him a perplexed look before turning to the ice type herself. She understood where the eevee evolution was coming from, and in a way, she felt the same, but she didn't feel right about simply leaving the other scyther behind. "Let's wait just a bit longer," she said after a moment of thought. She then raised her voice so all the nearby pokemon could hear. "Everyone, start to get ready. We leave soon." She was about to say more, but was interrupted by a new voice.
"Are you pokemon from the Valley?"
The mightyena whirled around, a bit alarmed that she had been distracted enough not to notice the pokemon approaching before. That, along with the fact that the swamp disguised most other scents, unnerved her even more about being in a strange place. The startled feeling quickly passed, however, as she realized that this gallade did not seem hostile. Stepping a few paces toward him, she nodded her head. "Yes," she told him. "We are."
