thanx for the feedback guys. This isn't that bad, is it?
The next day Nevada walked down to the pokemon store again. If she was lucky there'd be a new installment of cards. She walked in the automantic doors and headed straight to the card counter. Nothing new whatsoever! With a sigh, Nevada turned to leave, but almost instantly saw a flash of light up the back of the shop. Like yesterday!
she suddenly remembered. This was as good a time as any to check it out, so she headed up the back of the shop.
She turned past the last aile and saw nothing. There was a collection of pokemon stuffed toys, and a few mechanical toys, but nothing that she could see as the cause of the light. Nevada gazed at the collector pin stand for a moment, then turned to leave. Out of the corner of her eye she saw something shiny on the floor.
Nevada paused, then walked slowly over to the glint of light. She bent down, and after a minutes searching, found the source. It was a small medallion, about the size of a large marble, lying abandoned on the floor. It was made of clear glass, and had a piece of metal twisted around the top to form a loop for the thin silver chain it was hanging on. Nevada picked it up and studied it. It was not very heavy, and the clear glass was cool against the palm of her hand.
"You like it?"
Nevada jumped and almost dropped the medallion. Turning, she saw a small man with white hair and large ears.
"I ... what is it?"
"It's a medallion."
No, really? How observant of you
she thought. "What does it do?"
"Nothing. Do you want it?"
"What?" Nevada stepped back in surprise. "Is it for sale, do you mean?"
"No. I give it to you. As a gift."
"Well..." Nevada examined the medallion again. It was
nice, and for free...
"So? You want it, you keep it, yes?"
The moment the word had left her lips, the medallion in her hand started to glow. It glowed brighter and brighter, and a wind began to blow around her.
"What's happening??" She choked.
"They are free! Free once more!" She heard the little man giggle and dance around, but the light and the wind were now so strong that she couldn't see anything. The light grew brighter and the wind around her stronger. She struggled to stand, and in a huge flash, she heard and felt no more.
