Pokemon Declaration


Two Pokémon playfully ran from one side on a brightly colored paveway to another. Every time they looked up at the tall verdant trees, they sounded out amazed. A young boy supervised his two Pokémon from afar, but he kept a more reserved face. Except for an occasional small smile while his Pokémon threw out sounds of amusement. Then, one of his Pokémon with a gray fur swished her tail, taunting the other Pokémon with a game of tag. The other Pokémon, a flightless Water-type avian, took chase. The Minccino went on all fours, running away from the Piplup with a massive smile on her face. The Piplup followed, giving chase to the Minccino, but she zigzagged away from the Water-type Pokémon every time. Thankfully, the Pokémon never went too far from their master as he kept walking in a casual pace. He kept his arms tucked to the pockets and quietly observed, though he spilled out a laugh whenever his Piplup flapped his arms trying to fly while chasing after the Minccino.

This was one of the few breaks Titus was going to allow. Most of the time, Titus forced his Pokémon to wake up in the morning to train, battle, and exercise day and night. His Pokémon’s normal breaks were simply controlled lunch made by Titus to make sure that they were healthy. Then when nighttime fell, he ordered his Pokémon to sleep. Some would accuse him for being mean. But to Titus, that wasn’t cruel and unusual way to treat his Pokémon. It was only natural to constantly prepare to battle. This was his proof of love to his Pokémon. And in order to love his Pokémon, they have to be the greatest fighters in all of Godai and he has to be the greatest trainer ever.

The only reason he slightly deviated from his strict and hardcore training regimen was because they were heading to an oasis in the middle of a dreadful collection of glass buildings called Sangproctor City. A beautiful massive park was at the center of the city where the grass and trees were fresh green and the rivers and basin left untainted by the city. But he was only going to allow 30 minutes of them having free time. Afterwards, he was going to train them harder, no matter how much blood, sweat, and tears ran down his tiny legionnaires’ faces.

The Minccino looked back at the Piplup who was chasing after him. She gave out a cheery yell, encouraging him to catch her. The Piplup nodded his head, throwing out a confident yell, though the pants that escaped his mouth say otherwise. The two Pokémon ran back to their master and circled around his feet. Titus made sure not to step on them, but they amazed him whenever the two squeezed between his legs to chase each other. Finally, it culminated into a stalemate as the Normal-type Pokemon grabbed on Titus’ one leg while the other grabbed to another. The weight of the Pokemon dragged Titus to a standstill, and the two were not willing to let go.

“Hey! Hey! Play tag anywhere else but my legs!” commanded Titus with a stern face. Imperator and Pearl obeyed, as a soldier would to a commander, and the two ran ahead to chase each other in circles.

“Not too far away!” hollered Titus, gesturing them to come back. Obediently without question, they came close to him at just the right distance. He nodded to them and smiled, proud how well they behaved.

Titus breathed in the air, but thick air made him cough it out. He felt his lungs burning from the fumes alone. Somehow, the boy sensed the bitter taste of gasoline from just breathing in. He raced to his backpack and took out a bottle. It was his tiny oasis, and he forced all the water in to get rid of the taste.

How could people adapt to this? He never remembered a city smelling this bad. Not even Cascadia City was this dreadful. But, people walked passed Titus looking forward with their mobile devices out as if there was nothing wrong with the world. His Pokémon danced around Titus’ feet, never caring about the smog as if immune from all this. Everything was alien to him. Everything from when he arrived at the train station to when he arrived at the local Pokémon Center.

At one point during his walk to the center of the park, he saw a homeless man holding up a rusty can. The smell of garbage and the dirtied clothes that seemed ready to fall apart was enough to repel bystanders and Titus. Titus glanced at him before going on his way, but that was his mistake as the homeless man called him out.

“Please. I need money...” The homeless man’s rough and gritting voice shook Titus to the core, but his red eyes shook in desperation. When the trainer turned around, he yelped in shock as the smelly can was shoved near to his face. The nauseous smell emanating from the can almost knocked the boy out. The man closed on him, invading Titus’ personal space and making him panic.

“I… I don’t know what you want,” trembled Titus as he tried to step back. The homeless man shook his head, rejecting his answer. The man hunched over to close the distance, but his Pokémon dived in between the two and formed a wall. They growled at him and leaned towards him threateningly, forcing him back.

“Money… please…!” beckoned the homeless man, showing his unclipped dirtied fingernails. It was scary enough that this stranger approached him, but the mere fact that he knew about his affluence scared him even more.

“I’m sorry. I have to go!” He couldn’t stick around to ‘help’ that degenerate old man. Titus and his Pokémon turned around and fled to the Central Park. It was disgraceful for Titus, a descendant of noble knights that formed his family, to turn his head away from him. The boy was supposed to help the man in need, but he didn’t want to associate with that disgraceful garbage image he sported and smelled.

Soon, he arrived at the central region of the park. His Pokémon raised their eyebrows and mouths in amazement. Even the air was more forgiving than the city streets of Sangproctor. People and Pokémon played around the flat plains; it was the city’s own tiny Eden. If he could have a picnic here, he would have popped one right now.

Pokemon Declaration



Sangproctor City, a giant thriving town with tall concrete buildings everywhere in the near vicinity, to some this forest of flats and houses might be something they love and feel at home in but to Finny it was the opposite. The young fox enthusiast prefered a little more space, not even taking the fact that there were people, cars and worse everywhere into consideration. Though even cities like this had upsides as Finny hated to dwell in to negatives, because of course a big city meant many shops and many shops meant a lot of places to buy yummy foods, and once again the detective in the young girl was activated ready to find out the yummiest thing for herself and her friends in this sea of concrete.

Seconds after the switch in her head was turned, her frown turned into a sparkly bright smile as she frantically looked around while trying to follow the signs out of the train station that almost seemed like a giant maze. “Hey Fae, this place is like the perfect area for a big game of hide and seek the only problem are the millions of people who could trample on us,’’ Finny joked as she turned her head and smiling towards her little four legged friend, who wagged her tail in approval. Uncomfortable with all these feet that could step on her, the somewhat nervous Fennekin let out a small howl looking for her trainers attention. The sudden howl made Finny realise something might be wrong as Fae wasn’t a very frequent barker. The young girl quickly turned around to see what was wrong but bumped into a tall and chubby man with a giant pointy mustache and a very shiny bald head. The man looked at her with a disapproving glare. “Sorry,” she whispered trying to mutter the words out as she picked up Fae and quickly ran out of the station while almost tripping over her own legs.

The young girl was finally greeted by warm rays of sunlight that blinded her poor little fox who quickly used her own ears and finny’s hair to escape the burning light. Having escaped the crowded and scary station Finny felt a large sense of relief as she let out a huge sigh ’’ We did it Fae ‘’ she exclaimed while trying to catch her breath. She disliked the big station and was happy to finally see some trees instead of people. It wasn’t like the trees were growing free they were planted and caged in these giant concrete pots but she couldn’t complain as it was a sign of life for her.

Finny knew that it was going to be necessary to fit in with the large masses around her. That way it would not be too hard to stay under the radar, which was exactly what she was planning to do. The young girl decided it was a good plan to switch the clothes that made her stand out, to something that would look like she was more of a pea in the pot. Thinking of peas she shook her head and looked at Fae ‘’I don’t want to be a vegetable, are peas even vegetables?’’She asked her fox who was very confused and answered by tilting her face making both of them laugh out loud..

Continuing her stroll through the crowded city the young girl was carefully scanning her surroundings hoping to find some cute clothing stores or places that sold yummy local snacks.
Food obviously being her priority. While getting distracted by the thought of belly bribery Her eye was caught by this small little boutique that was almost swallowed by the various big stores that surrounded it. As the curious fox trainer peeked in through the window she noticed how the clothes they sold weren’ perse fashion items, but they did stand out way less than what she was wearing at that moment.

Happily pondering through the cozy store that was so stacked with clothes there barely was room to walk, Finny enjoyed places like these, she liked when things weren’t too tidy and everything was symmetric or perfect. The shop was like a treasure room or maybe like a home should be. There was too much information for her eyes to handle ‘’I wish I was an owl and could spin my head around’’The girl randomly exclaimed while sniffing her way through the mountain of clothes.

Like always Finny her thoughts started to drift off, Sometimes you got to ask yourself, is anything better than shopping for clothes with a fox on your head? Except for shopping for clothes with two foxes on your head. She shook her head, knowing that it would probably be frowned upon to take a Pokemon inside the store, they didn’t say anything about Fae but she didn’t want to push her luck. Soon after the train of thought had passed it’s station she settled for a very cute filmy green summer dress which had a nice frilly contrast weaved through it. She also decided to go for a big straw hat with a big ribbon on it and some very cute sandals with little flowers printed on them to finish it off. It wasn’t her usual clothes but worked for the day!

Leaving the store Finny felt proud and accomplished and very content, though maybe a little silly as she was now carrying even more bags the young girl her journey continued, off she was to find a bakery. Finny had recently been giving the honor of taking care of four pokémon, an Isdan Vulpix whose owner passed away and was put up for adoption. The two had bonded very quickly and Finny couldn’t resist taking her in. There also were Happiny and Mawile who she had received from a very kind professor who even though a little weird gave her the Pokemon. Happiny liked Finny a lot when she visited for a play date and couldn’t let go of the young trainer. Mawile is Happiny’s big brother and decided to come along to protect her but was also quite interested in Finny. Lastly there was a Teddiursa who snuck into Finny her backpack when she was out for food shopping, the little cutie bear never left her alone since. Today was going to be all about bonding. she decided to bring Fae and Mini along aswell to make the day even better.

After her raid on the bakery where she literally ordered to take out one of everything with chocolate and a ton of croissants. she then moved forward to get her Pokemon some yummies at a very luxury poffin store not too far away from the bakery. She had decided to get some Pokemon treats as well. mainly because she didn’t want to feed the Vulpix chocolate as it would be hard to get out of her sparkly white skin, giggling to seeing the image of an Isdan vulpix with chocolate on her nose. Her other reason to get them treats was because she heard that some Pokemon were actually allergic to chocolate and other human foods and it was bad for them, after this she went onward to fulfill the last of the things on her to do list.

Moments later, while carrying another bag in her arms and a Fennekin on her head, The young girl pondered forward. Contrary to her intentions she was getting quite a bit of looks while on her way to the park! She went to find a nice and empty spot,to have fun time while playing and eating tons of snacks. As the young girl settled beneath a giant tree that was blocking the sun for her she finally was able to put her collection of bags down while she let herself fall in the grass as she stretched out. This made her hat with Fae on it tip over as it plopped right onto her face and launching Fae forward but Finny somehow managed to catch her. Both giggled about their own silliness as Finny smiled and said ‘’ I am happy to be alive.” Making Fae wonder where all the seriousness in her voice came from.

The rest of the party was then summoned as a big group of Pokemon all attacked Finny ready for cuddles, only MawMaw was a little bit of a reluctant Relicanth as he just stood there rubbing his head against Finny her cheek before looking around to observe the area. MawMaw was a Pokemon that liked safety, as he didn’t want their trainer nor Happiny to be in danger. At times he still kind of struggled to enjoy the journey they were on as he constantly was quite tense. Happy was a little more careless, she was jumping around on Finny’s lap not realising that she was a little heavier than she looked, which made everyone laugh. Happy had no idea what she was doing wrong, it was a cute combination of innocence and silliness which was much like her new trainer.

Teddiursa found a great friend in Fae and Mini as they were already seen playing around together. The Teddiursa was trying to mimic other Pokemon making Fae and Mini laugh. Meanwhile Finny her new Vulpix curled up against Finny her shoulder putting her head in Finny’s neck purring comfortably as she was treated to her trainers body warmth. Slowly rubbing down on her Pokemon the young trainer smiled even though she wasn’t allowed to bring all of her Pokemon into the public she knew she had made a great deal of friends and was oh so happy to have them all.

Taking out the treats she had bought earlier along with her life serving of chocolate pastries the gang happily started to nom away enjoying the already great day.

The smog may have dimmed the colors of the city, the grass and trees glowed as if it was a sunny day. Before Titus made even one step on the ground, Imperator and Pearl bolted into the greenery paradise. “Hey! Come back here!” ordered Titus from afar, running after them. His Pokémon ignored his orders and dug themselves into a flower bed that had every color of the rainbow. They cupped the flower in their hands and breathed in a relieving fresh air. It smelled like fresh air for the first time.

Suddenly, a shadow overcast them blocking out the sunlight. When they turned around, they saw Titus glaring daggers at them, scaring the daylights out of them.

“Before you go running off, we need to find a spot first. Follow me,” explained Titus as he crossed his arms. This time, Imperator and Pearl obeyed without question.

They found an empty spot in the fields and claimed it as their own where Titus claimed the land as his own. It was far away from the people walking by and the children throwing sticks at the canine Pokémon. Finally, it was time to call out the Pokémon.

“Alright! Out!” Titus threw the Poke Balls in the air. His remaining team erupted out from their spherical homes and landed in front of him. Titus’ Pokémon stood no taller than the size of his boot, yet they seemed disciplined as ever.

“Attention!” Immediately, his tiny legionnaires formed together in a straight line. They stood erect and proud as proper soldiers. On the field was his Piplup, his Minccino, his Baltoy, and his newly caught Ralts. Only the Swablu resting inside his Pokemon never came out; she was too young for Titus’ rigorous training. Titus gazed down on his team and nodded in satisfaction. The rich boy always trained his Pokémon as warriors. He lusted for battle and victory and by training his Pokémon that way, Titus will win every battle.

“Look at you. Proud and smiling soldiers in my army.” Titus grinned with pride. His team returned the same confident gesture. Except one.

Standing out like a sore thumb was a downtrodden Pokémon twiddling his fingers. His giant head drooped down by the weight of his own depression without even acknowledging at the other Pokémon. Titus sighed in disappointment. That depressed Psychic-type “knight” was Galahad. He barely caught the Ralts, barely doted on him, and the Ralts barely had any confidence to just exist in front of Titus.

“Where’s your courage Galahad?!” screamed Titus like a drill sergeant. But the “courageous” Ralts felt like Titus was stabbing his ear with his intimidating voice. The Ralts stammered, gasped, and then backed away from Titus with his head bowed down in disgrace. To be fair to Titus, he was trying his best to bring out the confidence in his small knight. However, he hid behind his closest friend the Baltoy named Gravitas.

“Come on! You are now a member of the House of Hastur! I can’t let you be timid and weak like that!” ordered Titus. This time, he sounded a lot more enthusiastic as he forcibly raised his voice. But Galahad hiccuped in response and retreated behind the Baltoy. Galahad’s knees shook viciously.. At this point, Titus sighed and gave up.

“Just go and play, you guys. Don’t worry about Galahad.” The trainer dismissed his Pokémon to play tag while he plopped down on the ground, sighing in disappointment. Titus tried to turn his head to make eye contact with the Ralts, but the timid Pokémon turned his back just as fast. Titus was just as disappointed and as angry as the Ralts for being what he was: a timid, scared, weak Pokémon.

Titus could force the tiny knight to be a warrior, but that was going to take him a lot of work.

A day like today was one you could almost call perfect, having a great time in the park relaxing with her Pokemon, while enjoying the sunny weather. She even felt quite safe in her new outfit. Anxiety had been a part of Finny her journey, especially now she was basically a wanted person and a lot of people were looking for her, well that didn’t really matter to her, she knew that not a lot of people would search for her while she was in the other side of Godai, this with her new clothes were the reasons that she was able to feel quite safe. This didn’t mean that she wouldn’t be cautious, This was why she hadn’t brought most of the Pokemon that she was sighted with before, except for Fae she just couldn’t let her best friend wait for her while she was having fun, nor that Fae was someone who would let Finny leave her alone.

Honestly life was good, life was fun, Finny was ready to continue the positive trend flowing through her life. Even though the young girl that had a ton of baggage she wasn’t going to let that slow her down. No! Finny was ready to have fun! She’d worry once there was something to worry about, not that she had the ability to worry even if she wanted to.

Letting out a little sigh of relief after stuffing down a double chocolate doughnut with rainbow colored sprinkles in her mouth in one go, almost choking thanks to the way to big bite. Gasping for air Finny finally managed to catch her breathe again. The first thing that she was greeted with was her worried Pokemon family looking at her with dismay, especially queen Fae who glared at Finny for not taking better care of herself. “All that for a doughnut with only 6 different colored sprinkles, how dare they call that rainbow sprinkles,” Finny muttered as she focussed to get her breathing back on track, admitting that it wasn’t a smart move, But it looked so delicious!

The young girl let out another sigh because of all the struggles she was facing in her life. “Oh what a struggle it is to have too many things to eat,” she said while giggling as she let herself fall on her back. She stretched out, Swinging her arms like she was a splashing magikarp as she tilted her head backwards and came eye to eye to Vulpix who licked Finny's nose with her cold tongue. “Cooooold!’’ Finny screamed as she used her arms to scoop up the Vulpix holding it upside down. Finny was holding slushy dangling above her face before slowly rolling it onto Finny her chest, making the Vulpix make a few surprising almost bark like sounds. This little Finnercoaster ride made the rest of her team jealous.Thus they decided to all hop onto their trainer because it was time to pile on Finny! First came Fae, who excitedly jumped on almost bumping into the vulpix as she rushed to Finny her neck, where she rolled up as that was the best position and the place for the queen. The sassy Fennekin was followed by Happiny who was struggling to climb on, though Mawmaw noticed this and lifted her on. MawMaw shook his head almost as if he was disproving the ongoing situation. Teddi and Cinccino were also ready for cuddles and happily joined the others.

“I think you guys deserve some tickles!’’ Finny exclaimed with tons of excitement in her voice and a smirk on her face as she wiggled her fingers, but then dropped her head again. “Nah too tired,’’ she said while laughing a little as she closed her eyes for a little. MawMaw wasn’t happy his trainer looked like she was napping in the middle of nowhere and moved over staring into Finny her closed eyes. “Oh hey MawMaw,’’ Finny said as she opened her eyes thinking she sensed something behind her, “Don’t worry I won’t fall asleep, I think.’’ She continued while yawning loudly making the Mawile shake his head.

Finny then sat up using both her arms to catch Fae and Vulpix, who both snarled at her a little angrily making their trainer laugh a little. “Sorry little ones, I thought we actually needed some more food,” Finny said without a care in the world. Before moving over to the giant bag she had received at the bakery she looked in with a smile but then had an idea “Oooor do you guys want to see if there is a pond or something in the park so you can play in the water while I eat’’, having Fae and MawMaw protest right away but the rest of the kids thought it was a great Idea. “Don’t worry guys, who knows they even have a pond in here’’ Finny questioned with a little frown on her face as she was already looking forward to some water fun this sunny day.

The young self acclaimed Fox Pokemon trainer and the 6 of her Pokemon then left their spot strolling through the big park wondering if they’d find anything exciting. Finny was holding MawMaw’s hand who on his turn was holding and dragging along Happiny. Finny’s other hand was held by Cinccino as Teddiursa had climbed onto Finny her backpack, Behind them were Fae and vulpy who were bonding as they both were foxies. The merry gang moved forward curious to see what today was going to bring.

While Titus’ “problem Pokemon” kept sulking, the Piplup, the Baltoy, and the Minccino agreed on their favorite game: hide and seek. But before Imperator the Piplup could utter a sound, the other two Pokemon darted off into the bushes to hide. They ditched him and left him to be the seeker that has to work hard for it. But that didn’t bother Imperator. The Piplup was going to scare them the moment he finds them.

For Pearl, she chose the perfect spot: a shaded enclave with a giant tree in the middle surrounded by a wall of bushes. Her plan was to wait it out while she giggled and stomped her feet about how Imperator was never going to find her. The Chinchilla Pokemon heard Imperator’s high-pitched triumphant cry, but it was too far away to be meaningful. Occasionally, she peeked out of the seclusion in an gleeful anticipation. She knew Imperator wasn’t going to find him. For being Titus’ favorite Pokemon, he was the worst seeker ever!

Then, a loud rumble echoed from her stomach. She was hungry. The chinchilla tried to find any berries to eat, but the enclave hiding spot was bare of any of them. All green with twigs and nothing to eat. Pearl grumbled to herself in frustration, wondering why she herself hasn’t eaten yet. The stomach growled for a second time and this time, Pearl slouched at the tree stump with a sad look on her face. Pearl tried to scan the area for berries again, but, all the hungry chinchilla saw was the looming tree and large clumps of green surrounding the small hiding area. She found herself between a rock and a hard place. Starve or lose quickly? Pearl doesn’t want to lose and she gave out a big “hmph”. She was going to wait it out.

Then, the stomach growled again. This time it was louder.

Suddenly, her nose twitched and it picked up something so heavenly. Pearl sounded out in excitement as if she had a revelation. It smelled like a bakery was nearby. It caught her attention, with the thought chocolate melting in her mouth. The hungry chinchilla stood up and tilted her head up to gather the delicious scent again. It smelled so beautiful and her tongue went around her lips. She closed her eyes, picturing the assortment of desserts right in front of her like a croissant or a doughnut. Pearl formed a fist and a determined face. She had to nab a bite of the sweet source! It was going to be quick, and she won’t be gone too long.

Pearl held her nose up as her natural compass, pointed the direction to the source, and slowly tiptoed to the edge of the bush. The scent grew stronger the closer the Pokemon was at the source. At last, she found it. At the edge of the bush, the sugary smell was on the other side of the spot. Whatever was beyond it had to be food of some sort. Pearl nodded to herself, tilting her head up, and entered into the thick bushes again.

When she emerged from the bushes, Pearl’s eyes opened wide in amazement. The source of the heavenly mixture of chocolate, sugar, and butter was there, bundled into a pastry paper bag. From just the sight and smell, Pearl can taste the divine taste of custard, bread, and sugar coated on top melting in her mouth. Pearl beamed in happiness, stumbling upon the sugary treasure. The chinchilla stretched out her arm as if she was ready to grab it.

Unfortunately, her chance to nab a bite hit a bump. A young girl, nearly the same age as Titus, and her vulpine Pokemon friends seemingly guarded it. The girl, Finny, took a croissant from her bag, indirectly claiming the stack of pastries as her own. It was hers. She bought it and it was rightfully hers.

For a moment, Pearl stepped back and held back her arm. She mumbled to herself, pondering if stealing one doughnut was the right thing to do. Obviously, stealing was wrong and she didn’t want to see Finny cry if that happens. But even worse if somehow Finny told her master about it. She shivered at the ominous thought. A full week of intense punishment training followed by terrible Pokemon food. On the other side, her stomach craved and rumbled, demanding the baked muffins as tribute.

But the little selfish thief in her tempted her, which made Pearl remind her of her past. Back in the day at Cascadia, the devious girl acclaimed herself as the greatest pickpocketer ever, stealing things that looked shiny and tasty and stashed it in her secret hideout. It used to be a survival instinct, but stealing grew to be a favorite hobby. She smiled and hung her trophies back at her nest. That encouraged her to steal more and more.

Then, she tried to steal Titus’ mother’s jewelry. Unfortunately, one of the bodyguards caught her in the act. She could have been thrown out or been killed, but the heir to the House saw a different use for her. Now, she was part of Titus’ team. She was born a thief and she was a thief, whether under Titus’ supervision or not. It sounded like her stomach agreed with her with a loud rumble. The trove of doughnuts was going to be hers.

But why have the doughnut if she can plunder all the treasure? All the spoils for her friends, and the words his human master would say:

“This is awesome, Pearl! We’re not gonna go hungry for days with all the desserts! Thank you so much!”

The compliment was going to be the sweetest thing from Titus’ mouth. A prideful dash of smile formed on her lips. Pearl felt the inner thief within her rising. She blew a calm breath and went on all fours.

The stealthy Minccino made noiseless steps towards Finny and her sweets. The only noise Pearl allowed were the rustling spring leaves, Finny’s laughter covering her approach, and her own silence. The Cascadian thief prowled closer the doughnuts right before her, miraculously drawing no attention. However with each step closer to her target, so did the risk of being caught. She could be discovered at any moment. Her heart skipped several beats as she frequently look at Finny, who was within arm distance of Pearl.

But, they all looked away, oblivious to Pearl’s existence. A devilish smile formed on her face. They won’t suspected a thing.

There, she was arm distance of the desserts. Her paw touched the rim of the pastry bag. She couldn’t wait to plunder the girl’s edible treasure. Pearl’s mood lit up brightly, completing her first difficult task. If Finny didn’t notice then, she and her Pokemon won’t notice now. Pearl tugged on the bag, ready to drag it off but realized how heavy the bag was. The hungry chinchilla shook her head in disapproval; that won’t do at all. Pearl grabbed the edges and tugged again, this time with success. She let out a silenced yell of triumph, her mouth opening wide. Her heist was going to work, it seemed. Pearl took the entire bag and began dragging it back to her hiding place.

She was meters away from reaching to her hiding place until -snap-. The sound reverberated all over the area. Her mistake. Then, she squealed in shock. Her blunder. She tried to correct it by sealing her mouth shut with her hands, but it was too late. Her eyes slowly looked up and there was Finny looking down at her along with her entire gang of Pokemon.

The young girl stretched out vigorously as if she was moving an entire mountain, letting herself fall on her back after, her croissant still stuffed into her mouth, only to see a little mouse carefully sneaking around behind her, possibly attracted by Mini who was their evolved version, ‘’ Hey little one’’ Finny exclaimed with mouth full of dough. Taking a bite and swallowing it Finny sighed with relief and smiled at Pearl, wondering what the little mouse was doing here, it looked as if Finny busted it but she gave it no mind, she decided to use the Special ninja technique called Lots of love which wasn’t actually a ninja technique but was used to pamper a stranger so much that they wouldn’t attack you. Cracking a smile and waving over Mini she decided it was best to let the mouse meet another mouse, it was a great day afterall and Finny didn’t plan to get angry on a great sunny day like this, was there anyone capable of getting angry when it looked like the clouds were smiling at you.

‘’ My name is Finny and this is Mini’’ Finny exclaimed as she hold up the Cinccinno who was busy trying to decide whether to wave at Pearl or glare at Finny for lifting her like that, He decided to just laugh and wave at the fellow specimen.

Pearl gasped and froze in shock as if Finny casted a Glare attack to paralyze her. Her eyes precariously rolled to Finny, who discovered the tiny mouse and possibly her entire heist. All 6 Pokemon’s eyes forced her into the bright spotlight, making Pearl feeling exposed and vulnerable against some of Finny’s best Pokemon. They were going to beat her up for attempting to steal. The chinchilla was done for. She lifted up her arms in a guard formation, but she couldn’t even think of fighting back when Finny’s Pokemon surrounded her.

However, Finny’s friendly disposition showed otherwise. The human smiled to Pearl, showing her bright pearly teeth, although it was dirtied by the chocolate sticking to her teeth. Her cheeks puffed out when she talked in the most adorable way as she chowed on the croissants in her mouth. Mimi, the tough and fit Cinccino, waved an affectionate greeting to her. Both the trainer and her Pokemon’s eyes showed nothing but interest in Pearl, the same kind of eyes Temperantia and Imperator would make whenever they want to make new friends.

Pearl relaxed her tense muscles as she looked up to the Pokemon trainer, lowering her defenses and reaching out to Mimi with her paw. The Cinccino grabbed Pearl’s hand and shook it with both of them showing smiles on their faces. Pearl let out a sigh of relief. They seemed benevolent. Even Finny’s Pokemon howled out their adorable greetings to Pearl with some of them wagging their tails.

She was still hungry and with a needy face, Pearl pointed to the dessert pile, went on her knees and cried out to her, asking Finny for a bite.

The young girl cracked a smile as her Mini and the Minccino shook hands, there must be something like a brotherly feel as they both were the same species of Pokemon, well not all humans were brothers either. Most humans were scary according to Finny but she thought it be a different case for Pokemon as there were so many different kinds of them.

Mini was happy to see the Minccino and hopped of Finny her lap and walked around the little creature he once was to inspect it, after a few seconds it decided that being a Cinccino was way better because he had better swirls, putting his thumb up to Finny while winking he hoped to show his owner his approval of having evolved him. Finny answered by a smile as she tried paying attention to the Minccino who was on her knees begging for food.

Finny wasn’t sure why the Minccino was here and what it wanted from her, she itched her head while thinking, something she did often when trying to solve cases it was a habit of ‘detective’ Finny. The young fox trainer had a lot of theories whether this Pokemon had approached her, the way it moved and how theatrically it fell on his knees begging for food meant it knew how to play humans, thus it probably had a trainer, or atleast used to have one. If it was a wild Pokemon it would have been more likely that they would steal Finny her bag of food instead of coming to beg for it. Looking around her Finny saw no trainer. She decided it would be best to play along and see where things would go, being around the cute mouse wasn’t a torture anyways

" Aren’t you a little glutton, you want a piece of my croissant’’ Finny asked the little mouse as she carefully tore of a little piece and hold it up hoping that the mouse would eat out of her hand.

Without any form of hesitation, Pearl jumped up, snatched the piece from Finny’s hand, and consumed the entire thing in her mouth. In an instant, the croissant melted into a creamy sugary taste while the flavor burst in her mouth. Her cheeks puffed out as she chewed constantly, closing her eyes as she let the taste buds color all the good in the world.

The croissant was so good and delicious and pure, like a divine blessing from heaven. Pearl had to have more! She yelled in front of Finny and jumped in excitement, opening her mouth and begging for more.

Meanwhile, it was time for Titus to pack up and leave. Lunch break was over and in order for him to be ready for any battle, he and his Pokemon planned to do nothing but train for the entire day. It was a demanding schedule, but it proved that it made his team stronger and closer together. Most of his Pokemon were ready to experience the tough love, pushing their muscles beyond their limit. They were more than willing to do it for their trainer, who loved his Pokemon very much.

Imperator, Gravitas, and Galahad lined up, standing straight like disciplined soldiers in the army. Their backs were straight, their eyes looked forward without flinching, and their face showed discipline and courage. Although, the Psychic-type Pokemon broke his unflinching stance when he hiccuped. As soon as the Ralts realized that mistake, he whimpered and bent forward, feeling embarrassed for falling out of line.

However, Titus seemed jubilant as always, especially with that glowing smile on his face. “Steady, Galahad,” reminded Titus. Obediently, the Ralts let out a calm stream of air from his mouth and resumed his disciplined position, though he felt guilty for not looking brave for Titus. The young trainer was not mad at Galahad. He can be shy and timid and be cute for all he wants; in fact, Titus loved Galahad’s shy attitude. As long as the two worked together in battle and loved each other, that was all that mattered. Plus, the rest of his Pokemon seemed in good order. Only the Swablu had to rest inside her Poke Ball after having too much fun playing tag.

“So where is Pearl? All we need is her and we’ll be on her way,” asked Titus. Imperator, Galahad, and Gravitas gave each other concerned looks. They have not seen Pearl ever since the hide and seek game. They cried out in a sound which Titus recognized as a “no”.

“Wait. You don’t know where she is?” The trainer’s calm tone grew distressed, realizing that Pearl was missing.

Finny was happy to see such an excited reaction from the little mouse, they had sure liked the croissant and even wanted more, being captivated by the Pokemons attempt to charm Finny in giving more food she carefully tore of another piece of the bread and stuffed it in the mouse her mouth. It was kind of funny feeding a Pokemon like this, it was usually what she’d do with Archie and her Zorua too, so it was quite fun to feed the Minccino. Fae was getting a little jealous and decided to rub her head against Finny her arm signalling it wanted food too, ‘’ Don’t worry Fae, you won’t have to be hungry either I have tons of pastries left’’ Finny exclaimed hoping to calm down her gluttonous fox.

While Finny and the Pokemon giggled in pleasure, Titus roared in panic. “Pearl! Where are you!?” He and his Pokemon crashed into the same reclusive area Pearl used to hide from Imperator. The trainer scanned the area, circling around the giant tree several times in a frantic pace and motion. However, the chinchilla was nowhere to be seen. Titus and his Pokemon went on their knees, trying to find a hole in which Pearl burrowed herself in. Still nothing. He tore into the wall of bushes surrounding the large tree with an abrupt force, but she was not there. The boy threw out a frustrated sigh as he ran out of places to look for. Where, oh where did the Minccino hide? Titus tried his best to calm down, but the thought of losing a teammate and friend made him lose control. It was his first day in Sangproctor City, and Titus cannot lose her on the first day. He really that Pearl was still playing. Otherwise, the trainer might assume the worst.

“She couldn’t have been hiding all this time, right?!” Titus turned and faced to Imperator with scowling eyes, ready to blame him for losing her in a hide and seek game. The Piplup cowered for a moment, fearing the trainer’s wrathful voice, but stood firm and gave a firm sound to him. The Water-type companion shook his head, not even knowing where she was.

“Keep searching!” Titus ordered his Pokemon, and they scrambled to get to work. A calm stream of air came out from his mouth. Titus admitted it was not Imperator’s fault, but Pearl’s disappearance made him worry.

“Pearl!? Pearl! Where are you!?” cried out Titus, hollering into the air. When his voice reached to Pearl’s ears, she opened her mouth in shock and turned her head to the direction of the source. That was the sound of his master, and the loud panicked-stricken voice told Pearl that he was not happy. Feeling sad that she made her trainer worry, Pearl snapped into action.

The quick and inquisitive action led her to eye on the croissant, the sugary bundle of sweets that was sure to make anyone smile. It sure made her smile with the chocolate debris in her mouth. If the chinchilla could appease Titus, he would forgive her. She opened her eyes, yelling out happily thinking it was going to be one happy ending. Pearl dug into the bag of pastries and pulled out a croissant lifting an object twice her size with her tremendous strength. Then, she took off with the croissant, heading towards the bushes.

Fae was keeping close eyes onto to the Minccino, and at the moment it struck she decided to strike as well, Jumping in front of Pearl growling angrily to tell her, she needs to return the croissant, at the same time Mawmaw got ready as well because someone stole from his master. Finny looked at the scene unfold and sighed a little ‘’ You are one naughty Pokemon, I fed you and now you steal, I don’t like that’’ Finny said with a very disappointing tone as her Pokemon cornered the Minccino. Happy, Mini and slushy hid behind Finny as they didn’t want something bad to unfold while her Teddiursa stood in front of Finny protecting her. Finny sighed, ‘’ I didn’t mind feeding you but I think you should return the croissant, stealing is bad you should at least ask for it’’ Finny continued glaring at the Pokemon. Finny honestly felt bad for the Pokemon, she realized it was hungry but had to stand by her decision to not let it get away with stealing as it would show her own friends stealing was bad. She did hear someone yelling a moment away, wondering if that might be the Minccino’s trainer she decided to quietly wait for the Pokemon to return the croissant and apologize.

Pearl rushed back to her hiding spot. To her delight, she found Titus and the rest of the team right in front of her. She yelled in a joyous tone to Titus with a bright smile on her face, waving the croissant to win her trainer’s smile. When Titus turned around, Pearl got a different reaction.

“Pearl! There you are!” cried out Titus with a worried look on his face. The other Pokemon turned around and rejoiced when Pearl returned back to Titus. He was concerned that Pearl away from him so she could do mischief or that she hated him. The bright smile on her face showed that she was still loyal to him. Still, he can’t help but chastise her for making him worry.

“Where have you been? I got worried because of you!” scolded Titus. He kneeled down and picked up Pearl with his hand. The Minccino felt bad for making Titus scared so she showed him the croissant to try and lighten his mood. However, that earned Minccino a puzzled look from Titus.

“Wait. Where did you get that?” asked Titus, pointing to the pastry. With a big grin on her face, Pearl jumped down from Titus’ hand and sprinted towards the direction to where Finny was, forcing Titus and his Pokemon to follow it. When they emerged from the other side, they stumbled on a young girl and her Pokemon.

Titus was following Pearl, but already he felt awkward in front of the girl. A nobleman like Titus shouldn’t look stupid in front of a young lady; that was not how Hasturs behaved. He cleared his throat and straightened his back, showing off his aristocratic and noble stature. Then, with a calm and gentlemen like voice, he presented himself to Finny.

“I am sorry, but have you met a Minccino before?” asked Titus.

Finny frowned as the Minccino miraculously managed to escape her Pokemon who had encircled it. Sitting back down with a big sigh she winked her hand for her Pokemon to come back, ‘’ At Least we have tons of other yummy foods!’’ Finny said with a bit of a trembling voice, trying to cheer up her Pokemon. It was true that they had a lot of other pastries left but it did feel bad that a Pokemon managed to steal their food, it was weird as her Pokemon were supposed to be much faster but the thief miraculously disappeared. ‘’ Leeeet’s cheer ourselves up with eating’’ Finny tried once again as she took out a hand full of Pokemon snacks from the other bag as she scattered them around the field, her Pokemon storming at them.

As her Pokemon were happily trying to find the food she scattered around Finny stared at the bushes in front of her as the Mincinno that stole from them came back, she wondered if it came to steal more food. Following the Mouse Pokemon was a boy, he looked like a bit of a rich kid and maybe a bit of a snob. Finny knew she wouldn’t normally get along with people like him but she also knew to not judge someone before they spoke. She got up with a sigh as the boy took on a weird pose, Finny stared at him for a weird second as he saluted and asked her if she ever met a Minccino. Smirking a little she pointed at Mini the Cinccino and said ‘’ Mini used to be one, but now she is even cuter’’ she stated wondering what this boy would do now.

On further inspection she noticed the trainer had a few more Pokemon, they seemed loyal to their trainer but they weren’t as cute as her own Pokemon. Looking back at the boy who’s Minccino had stolen her croissant she wondered what to say about it, he didn’t even apologize yet, he probably was feeling to good about himself to apologize, Finny forced a smile and waited for an answer.

Titus glanced at the bag next to Finny and her Pokemon and saw the bag of desserts next to her. It was probably where Pearl got the sweets from, and he was feeling guilty for not knowing that she was going for the lady’s belongings. He kept his humble gesture and showed Pearl in front of her.

“What about this one?”

When Finny saw the boy lift up the Minccino that had robbed her of her croissant she knew how late that was, sighing she said ‘’ Ah that croissant thief was yous, it got good taste but it lacks manners’’ She said trying to not start a whole rant on how to have your Pokemon behave. She looked at her bunch of ragtag Pokemon and realised she was quite sure none of them would go steal food, probably also because she fed them tons of yummy stuff. Looking back at the boy and the Minccino she decided to wait for their reaction before continuing her rant or deciding what she would do.

“Then I have to apologize. My Minccino was a thief before I caught her.” Titus sighed in self disdain. Then, he got close to Finny and went on his knees to meet eye level with her while the rest of his Pokemon followed. He was ready to expect to pay damages to the young lady, as expected from the little gray thief that used to love stealing everything.

“So what did she do to you? Any earrings she swiped from you or cash she took from your wallet?”

Finny was a little surprised that the boy she suspected to be a brat had manners, they were a bit different from hers but at least he apologized. Looking at how he and all his Pokemon apologized she shook her head, ‘’ nothing of that kind, she only stole a croissant, bet the little mouse was hungry’’ Finny answered not being as agitated as before. ‘’ The mouse is a little stealyface?’’ Finny asked as she forgot the word kleptomaniac existed. Finny was curious why the Pokemon was roaming free, maybe the boy was a new trainer?, well she’d keep her thoughts to herself for now and tried to focus on the conversation at hand.

“Uh… uh ‘stealyface’?” Somehow, that creative word stunned Titus, expecting the beautiful lady to use more sophisticated words. He couldn’t control the tiny sounds of giggles coming from his mouth; it was the cutest and dumbest word he heard in a long time. However, he found himself to be rude so he cleared his throat and resumed his calm demeanor. “Um… yes. In your terms, Pearl here is a ‘stealyface,’ or rather a kleptomaniac, though I do try to correct her behavior.”

‘’ Ah kleptothingy that is the word I was looking for’’ She muttered under her breathe ‘’ I think stealyface sounds more cutesy though’’ she continued before diverting her attention back at the young boy. So this mouse had a history with stealing, she never had a problem like that but might have a suggestion for the boy, though she hated meddling in other people their affairs and much rather avoided giving advice, though for the sake of all croissants in the world she scratched her throat and took a deep breathe of fresh air, ‘’ well uhm, I think the stealing is most likely because she is bored, I’d look in giving her more things to do when she isn’t in her Pokeball.’’ Finny said before sighing in relief, almost as if she had ran a marathon. People just weren’t the easiest things for her to communicate with.

“If that’s so, then you know the punishment Pearl!” scolded Titus as he turned to Pearl with his glaring eyes, scaring her. His other Pokemon spoke nothing as they knew how harsh Titus’ punishments can be if they ended up in unnecessary trouble. However, a lady was present along with her Pokemon so he had to drop his autocratic attitude for her.

“May I know your name?” asked the young ace trainer in the most polite way possible.

Finny heard the boy infront of her talk about punishment, the poor mouse probably would have to skip second dessert tonight then, well it deserved that so all was fine. ‘’ Punishment?’’ Finny asked in a soft tone, kind of worried what the trainer would do to his Pokemon. ‘’ My name is Finny, how about yours?’’ She said answering the boys question.

“My name is Titus Hastur,” greeted the young heir, who offered a handshake to Finny. “And yes. Punishment. Usually, I would force my Pokemon into extra training until they couldn’t take it anymore and just fall flat like that. Basically, military training!”

Finny accepted the hand while muttering ‘’ Nice to meet you’’ as she felt super uncomfortable while shaking Titus his hand, she wasn’t used to things like this so it was a bit hard for her but she completed another achievement, which she was proud off. When Titus told her about the extra training till the pokemon fell flat she frowned, ‘’ When you mentioned punishment I thought you’d mean no dessert, not torturing them’’ Finny said as she frowned a little, she didn’t like Titus his methods at all. ‘’ Pokemons are friends, we should cuddle them instead of make them hurt’’ Finny said hoping that the trainer in front of her would agree.

“It’s the perfect way a Pokemon gets stronger. How I’ll get stronger!” Titus trumpeted proudly, while placing his hand on his heart in a selfish manner. “Hugging a Pokemon is good, but there are times where it has no place on the battlefield. I always train them to be in top. They’re warriors after all.”

‘’Battlefield?’’ Finny repeated with a surprised look on her face, ‘’ Pokemon are friends, there ain’t no wars in Godai, we shouldn’t treat our Pokemon like tools’’ She continued getting a bit agitated by the way Titus was talking, as if he didn’t care for his Pokemon at all. Finny and her Pokemon were great friends, when they battled they did so for a reason and yes, she did train here and there but she’d never treat her Pokemon like they were soldiers, so the way the boy she met today talked about Pokemon had agitated her a lot. ‘’ I do hope your Pokemon are happy and not suffering ‘’ She said looking at the ground, thinking about leaving this place as this trainer had gotten her down.

“They are! Right guys?” Titus turned to his Pokemon with a wave of fervor. However, the enthusiastic attitude died at an instant and he was getting mixed messages he got from his Pokemon. Imperator cheered on for his master as he was used to Titus’ harsh training. Pearl froze in place and stared at Finny with her shaking eyes, dreading the punishment the Hastur would give to her. Gravitas never cared and just laid there staring into the sky, and Galahad sighed in discontent. The mention of training and honor and the greatness of the House of Hastur irritated him constantly.

“Uhh… umm…” The ace trainer was stunned and unable to make a response to the lack of morale from his team.

Finny sighed as the proof of Titus his Pokemon not being treated as greatly as they should presented itself as they were asked for their morale. Finny looked at the young boy who was at a loss for words and then looked at her Pokemon and smiled back at Titus, ‘’ my Pokemon are almost always happy, aren’t we you lot?’’ Finny asked as Fae happily responded by some happy howls, Mini stood their laughing together with Happy. MawMaw didn’t show much of a response, except for a confident smirk and a relaxed pose, he knew for sure that his Trainer was more awesome than the guy in front of them. Teddiursa and slushy were happily playing together rolling around in the grass, so they didn’t give much of an answer. ‘’ I am not saying your methods are wrong, but don’t my Pokemon look happy’’ Finny said, mustering in some courage, as she was always doubting if she was good enough for her Pokemon, so their reaction really made her feel great.

“It seems so,” replied Titus with a genuine smile, appreciating how close Finny and her Pokemon were. The way that her Pokemon seemed carefree and happy reminded Titus years ago when his Pokemon were like that. However, he begged the question of the state of readiness from her Pokemon. If anything, they seemed ill prepared if someone were to force her into battle. His Pokemon were constantly ready, that was the fact and her Pokemon weren’t, and that was reflected with a stern look at MawMaw.

“However, how will your Pokemon survive in battle?” asked Titus with a serious look.

‘’ If needed my Pokemon are here for me, if I ask them to battle for me I am sure they will give it their all, and I give my all for them’’ Finny answered as she sighed, why was this guy so obsessed with battling, Pokemon were friends there to be by your side, yes there were people who went to gyms, even she kind of wanted to be a Pokemon master but she would only battle if her Pokemon wanted to, and only when she was sure a Pokemon center was nearby, she didn’t want to take any risks, she just wanted to have a happy time with her friends. Finny looked back at the boy, he smiled so maybe he did agree that it was good to treat Pokemon better, but then his battle remark didn’t make sense. Finny was a little confused and looked back at Titus waiting to see if her answer was a good one.

“Hah!” Titus let out a huge laugh throwing his head back, amused by the lady’s answer. Then, he turned to Finny with a mean-spirited provocative face. “Then how about a battle? I’m pretty sure your Pokemon can handle it with the bond that you and your Pokemon made.” He asked with his usual polite tone, but beneath his good manners, he was mocking Finny’s philosophy of how to get stronger.

‘’ I don’t really battle a lot to be honest, I just don’t see the need to battle here and now’’ Finny exclaimed as she looked at her Pokemon, but MawMaw was raring to go, the remarks made towards him and the staring got him a little irritated, and his defensive nature made him jump up, ready to protect his trainer’s honor. ‘’ Ah it seems like MawMaw wants to battle, okay let’s do this then’’ Finny said in a slow manner of speech, she wasn’t really excited to battle but if her Pokemon was ready to prove the guy in front of them wrong, she was too.

The Mawile stood ready, looking at Titus his Pokemon wondering who he was going to fight.

“Your Mawile knows to be ready!” chuckled Titus, admiring the brave Steel-type’s bravado and impetus. His Pokemon cheered on at the sound of battle, marshalling in front of Titus to scruff and growl back at MawMaw. Even the noncaring Baltoy and the scared Minccino rallied to Titus and readied to give their all. Only the despondent Psychic-type slumped down on the ground, not feeling the enthusiasm of battle as the rest. Still, that didn’t stop Titus from being confident in his abilities. Battling was in his blood and he was more than fired up to show Finny what he was made of.

“How about this? As a knight of honor, I have to give you a fair fight. If I win, I have to make you and your Pokemon stronger as I see fit. If you win, I’m yours to command. Acceptable?”

‘’ We need rewards in a battle?’’ Finny asked with a frown, hers to command this Titus was a bit of a weird one to be honest, why couldn’t he have fun with his Pokemon instead of acting stiff. She didn’t really want to accept but her Mawile was pumping to go, so with a little sigh she said ‘’ okay, I agree’’. Finny took a deep breathe to prepare, ‘’ Alright MawMaw, let’s do this’’ Finny said wondering if Titus was ready.

“To battle then!” declared Titus with a confident tone. “Galahad! You’re up!” ordered Titus with a hand gesture. The Ralts cried out to Titus, complaining on why he has to be the one to do it where there are other Pokemon willing to. Titus was unwavering and with his one hand, he shoved Galahad into the front to face against the intimidating Mawile in front of him. The chomping ‘hair’ from the Deceiver Pokemon seemed ready to chew him to bits and that shook Galahad’s already broken soul to the core.

Finny had no idea who Galathingy was until the ralts cried out, ‘’ Poor little tree’’ She mumbled as she looked at the disappointing Pokemon who was going to fight her Mawile. She didn’t bring Rin here, who was probably next to Fae her most practiced fighter, though MawMaw was very strong aswell and she knew he could get the job done. ‘’ O-okay, if you really wanna battle, let’s do it’’ she mumbled as nerves got the better of her. Looking around she saw there weren’t a lot of people around here and there was enough open room on the field of grass to fight, looking back at Ti, ‘’ Do you think this be an Okay spot to battle or do you want to move somewhere else? ‘’ In the mean time she lifted up Slushy as she loved something to hold and squeeze during the battle, Teddi felt left out and started climbing on finny her leg, oh how her Pokemon loved her.

“Hmm…” Titus was so worked up for a battle that he didn’t think about what kind of battlefield he wanted. The young ace trainer thought of an uneven field that he could use advantage against. But then, it would never be a fair fight and he never would gain real victory from this. So a fair field where both had equal chances satisfied him.

“There’s a small arena I passed by the park. We could use that,” suggested Titus.

‘’ A park arena? Is that something new?’’ Finny asked with a surprised expression on her face. She frowned a little wondering why they couldn’t have the battle here. Finny sighed again, she didn’t like being in the spotlight, she didn’t like people observing what she did so an open area for battles wasn’t her preference.

“Yes. As trainers, it is their duty to show their might in battle,” answered Titus. Finny received a glare from Titus from just her cowardly statement alone. That sentence would have not been uttered back at Titus’ mansion. But all he got from Finny was no. It was pathetic being scared to battle in front of people, but he set that aside for now.

“I know an arena where we can battle alone.”

‘’Okay, if you don’t think this area is good enough I’ll have you lead the way’’ Finny said trembling a little. Honestly, Finny hated battling as her Pokemon could get hurt, her Mawile was rearing to go through, the taunts Titus made angered him and he really wanted to do something about it.

Finny looked at her Pokemon who were just being their normal cheerful selves, maybe Finny was overreacting, maybe a battle wouldn’t be a problem at all, as long as her Pokemon enjoyed it maybe it was okay to have them fight others? Fae noticed that her Trainer was still conflicted in thought and rubbed her head against Finny her leg making Finny laugh, ‘’ I know Fae it’s okay’’ The young girl said as she pat her fox. Slushy then slid her head under Finny her arm signalling she wanted pets too, making Finny and the gang laugh, finny gulped and looked back at Titus ‘’ Okay lead the way’’ She said as she was ready to do this battle.

Titus got up and escorted Finny into the central region of the park. When they arrived, the two trainers saw the small flat arena about the size of a basketball court. There were stairs that led down to the arena. Park benches and trees surrounded the battlefield to give it a nice decor, the decorative concrete walls surrounded the arena, and the spectators would watch from above.

For Titus, it was a perfect setting. The area was flat, which meant that neither trainer held advantage against each other. Not only that, but it gave a sense of formality when the two battled. While people walked around the arena, no one was interested in watching which means that the two can battle without interruptions. Then, Titus introduced the arena to Finny.

“There’s a reason these types of arenas exist. Not only do people use it for sports, but they use it for battles. Some people are disdainful of stray attacks damaging valuable property, so they built small arenas across Godai to create a safe battling environment. What do you think?”

While following her challenger, Finny went from nervous to confident and to scared in mere seconds, in every step she did she felt another emotion sometimes even excitement came through, it honestly was a weird experience. Upon seeing the court and listening to Titus his description she scratched her head thinking to herself that this wasn’t much better than the field they were on meree minutes ago. As she saw Titus walk to one side of the field she decided to go to the other half. “ I should have brought Pompoms for you lot” She said eyeing towards teddy, happy and Mini as all three were in great and happy moods. Meanwhile Slushy had fallen asleep in Finny’s arm and Fae had climbed upon her head because the view was better from there. As she took of her backpack and placed it onto the ground she rested Slushy in it so the foxy could continue her sleep. MawMaw was feeling pumped up and moved onto the field where the battle would take place, waiting for his opponent to walk out.

At the same time, Titus went to the opposite section and stared at his opponent from afar. He was already plotting different ways to defeat Finny. His eyes caught Finny shaking on the spot. He grinned, and showed off his razor teeth, ready to devour Finny and MawMaw. It was going to be a fun battle, but they were easy prey. Choosing whether he was going to defeat them elaborately or through brutality gave him pleasure.made him smile. Deciding how gave him pleasure.

He summoned his trusted knight to battle as MawMaw came forward, sure of his inevitable victory. The page slowly waddled his way into the battle. Unlike his master, Galahad bowed his head as if he already lost.

“Galahad! Bow!” ordered Titus, audibly annoyed by the Ralts’ attitude. As a sign of respect, the Ralts gave a small but hesitant nod to his Steel-type opponent.

Titus’ Pokemon cheered on for Galahad, encouraging him to do his best. Even the Baltoy, while the enigmatic Pokemon made no sound, waved his appendages around to bolster Galahad’s courage.

“You’re representing the heir of the greatest family in all of Godai!” proclaimed Titus, puffing his chest out. “You’re going to win this!” But the unwilling knight shook in front of the opponent that he felt he was not going to make a dent of.

MawMaw taunted and snarled at the Ralts. Her jaws gritted its teeth and snarled, shaking Galahad to its core. The Ralts only knew one thing: the Mawile was scary.

“ Let’s do this MawMaw” Finny said as her Pokemon returned the little bow and stretched out a little looking at his trainer for advice on what to start with. “ Uhm uhm, Raltsy is a Psychic-type which means a bite might be a good idea” She said in a soft and hesitant tone. MawMaw responded very positively though showing his thumb up as he lunged forward towards the Ralts.
As the Mawile who ran at a fast place neared the opponent he hopped into the air launching the maw on his head towards the Ralts using it to launch a bite towards Ralts.

Galahad’s knees buckled as the Steel-type opponent descended towards him. The opening giant hair-mouth paralyzed the knight, ready to eat him alive and bring a swift end to the battle. But Titus’ authoritarian voiced boomed him back to reality.

“Dodge! This should be easy!” ordered Titus. Immediately and obediently, the Ralts split himself into several different versions of himself, and the Mawile found himself biting nothing but an illusion. Several copies of Galahad sprang up surrounding MawMaw with their stubby arm pointing towards him, as if he was aiming for an attack. Concealing himself from multiple copies, he breathed a sigh of relief that he got out of that one.

Looking how nicely Galahad performed an attack, Titus gave a subtle nod. All of Galahad’s attacks at the moment was not going to hit MawMaw’s attacks due to his Steel-typing. But, the young ace trainer felt like he was at better ground than Finny. He showed no fear and opened up a smile, ready to see the battle done as he saw fit.

Finny was surprised by how the Ralts had suddenly had managed to get away and by how he had created copies of himself, she knew that they were fake. The young fox enthusiast took a deep breathe and told her pokemon ‘’ MawMaw, they are fakes, let’s expose the real one by using your fairy wind!’’, Finny was really enthusiastic and had a lot of fire in her, she wanted to win.

MawMaw nodded as he jumped back a little and whipped up a blast of fairy wind that flew through the room towards the Ralts and all his clones. The mawile wasn’t well versed in special type moves but his fairy wind would be more than enough to get rid of the clones.

The sparkling gust of wind from the Fairy-type attack wiped away the illusions like an eraser. The air rushed through Galahad in an attempt to damage him, but the attack was so weak it only ruffled the side of his leg. While it did little to no damage, the Ralts threw out a frustrated growl not because he wanted to hit back, but because he wanted to end the battle early.

“Oh! Clever! I guess I have to step it up a notch. Confusion!” ordered Titus. The Ralts nodded, although begrudgingly, and concentrated his telekinetic power in an attempt to throw the Steel-type Pokemon to the wall.

Finny saw how the opposing pokemon charged up a little before shooting a wave of kinetic energy at her Mawile. ‘’ MawMaw, endure this and then hit back with a vice grip’’ Finny exclaimed hoping that her Pokemon would agree with the plan. MawMaw nodded slightly as he braced himself for the attack, placing his Maw in front of him while crossing his arms when the attack hit. The kinetic energy pushed him back but didn’t manage to lift MawMaw up. Panting from his opponent’s attack, MawMaw knew that this wasn’t a game he had to get serious.

“Wow.” He muttered under his breath, noting the Mawile’s perfect lunge at Galahad. MawMaw’s fierce scream was the most beautiful thing ever, reminiscent of knights long before.

He quickly ran towards the ralts keeping his maw to the side before rapidly lunging it at his opponent once he came close, hoping to catch the Ralts.

“Teleport!” Titus ordered with a smile on his face. He crossed his arms, so confident that the battle was going well. If someone was watching the battle, they would have pointed out the obvious: MawMaw was a Steel-type and he was going to crush the poor Galahad. But if it was his father or cousin battling, they would have won within the next 30 seconds. That was how powerful their family was at battling. And he tightened his fist, excited to show off his power.

He saw the Mawile reforming itself and readying to attack again. The attack was too strong for Galahad to take on.

And all the better for Titus to take advantage of. He couldn’t hide the smug forming up on his lip. There was no way for Galahad to force his way through MawMaw’s impenetrable defense. So, he was going to literally make the Mawile hit herself with a barrage of Confusion.

He eyed on Finny and nodded to himself grimly. It was desperation coming out of her. A small hint of guilt rose in Titus. It was wrong to humiliate a lady, but she was going to make a good example of how great of a trainer he was. He expected a purple flash of light from Galahad to make that Vice Grip attack clumsy. He tapped his foot on the ground. It was going his way.

Except, none of what Titus planned happened. In fact, Galahad never listened to his command at all! The next thing he saw was his own Pokemon squeezed to death by the Mawile’s jaw. Even Galahad’s cheerleaders stopped, listening his screams. When MawMaw judged he had enough, she spit the beleaguered knight to the ground.

“What?” Titus was dumbfounded. No matter how brilliant or strong Titus was, he found himself on dangerous ground. The spineless girl suddenly found the courage to usurp the House of Hastur’s heir. She, of all people, was going to win. But he shook his head furiously. There was no way Finny was going to win.

But to Galahad, the battle was pretty much over. A few more hits and he was done for. He beseeched to his master with tears in his eyes, stretching his arms to end the battle and take him back. Titus refused.

The trainer’s orders were desperate and cold. Galahad was ready to cry. He was stuck between a Pokemon that was going to eat him alive and a trainer barking at him. Gravitas couldn’t watch his friend get thrashed on the battlefield. The spinning top tried to rush to his aid, but Imperator stopped with his arm. The Baltoy swiftly turned to his “leader” with a sharp gash tune. The Piplup shook his head solemnly. Even Titus’ “second in command” was powerless to do anything.

Especially when his trainer was still defiant.

Finny then noticed that the ralts wasn’t feeling happy, he wanted to quit but his owner forced him to battle, which actually angered Finny, she didn’t want to hurt the Ralts but as long as Finny would have the fight continue the Ralts would maybe suffer even more. ‘’ Hey MawMaw, the Raltsy doesn’t want to fight, I was thinking can you just knock him out without hurting him too much?’’ Finny asked scratching her head wondering if something like that existed. Could you knock someone out without hurting them? MawMaw shared the same worries, honestly he didn’t understand half what Finny was saying, probably more than that, she talked way too much and human speech was always so hard to understand. Honestly MawMaw was just aggravated and frustrated that his attacks kept missing, but not this time.

“Galahad! Watch out!” But Titus’ warning came in as muffles to Galahad. Before the Ralts could ever even think, the jaw snapped to a close with Galahad flailing inside. At this point, both Finny and Titus felt sickened by it. Probably, even MawMaw hated it to the point where she had to spit him out. Not even Titus’ team could cheer on from what they are seeing right now.

Galahad got up and pleaded for his master to call off the battle. But Titus never laid an eye on him nor heard his own Pokemon screaming.

The plan was still good in his eyes. Titus was so sure victory was going to be his that he tightened his fists to the point where it seemed like it was going to tear through his gloves. The same Confusion tactic was still viable and Finny was still weak as ever. That was his justification and it became a fact.

“Galahad! Position!” The Ralts yelped, but did as he was told aiming his arms at his determined opponent. But really, the beaten page had nothing else left. He never wanted to face the dark slimy mouth again. But deep down inside, he was going to and Titus was not going to care.

“Get out of there Galahad!” The Ralts tried to get out with another Confusion attack.

As the disgruntled Ralts had launched a confusion upon MawMaw, yet his attack wasn’t aimed properly as it moved right passed the Mawile who stood there with a surprised look on his face. “ MawMaw, let’s put out the poor tree out of his misery, I feel sorry for him having such a mean trainer who doesn’t cut him some slack” Finny said mumbling to the ground as she took a deep breathe before exclaiming loudly “ Let’s go with Vice Grip, try and knock him out gently“. MawMaw didn’t share much of Finny her sympathy but could agree that Titus his methods were plain wrong, he nodded to Finny before launching himself to the Ralts that was only a few feet away, as he planned to grip the Ralts his head tightly.

The Psychic-type Pokemon stood up, but his head wobbled all over the place feeling dizzy from being shaken a lot from the Mawile’s mouth. His trainer bombarded him with more loud orders that grew more unrealistic than the last and at this point, he had enough of his “master”. The tired Ralts blocked out everything from Titus, bashed his head with his fists, and threw out a childlike growl. He was tired of all this and he wanted to just run away.

But Galahad was slow to realize what happened next, especially as his eyes gazed on the ravenous opening jaw. MawMaw yanked Galahad by the feet, chomped him repeatedly, and threw him on the floor, leaving the Ralts motionless and lying on the ground face down.

The battle was all over. The trainer himself prided himself as the son of powerful knights, but knelt on the ground defeated. Even worse, his loss was also his first battle and was an embarrassment for his House. There was no way he could face his own family after losing to a girl that looked like she never held a Poke Ball in her life.

Finny observed how MawMaw had knocked out their opponent by his fierce Vice Grip. It was a powerfull move and honestly even Finny herself was a little bit scared of MawMaw in battle. Not scared that it would attack her, but more that it would overdo things on the opponent Pokemon. Mawile instead stood proud on the battlefield before returning to happy and lifting her up while making funny faces, the battle was done and he could now return to being a bit more silly.

Finny looked at Titus and almost felt bad that he had lost, he was just standing there with an open mouth surprised of his loss while his Pokemon was hurting. Finny rushed over to see if he was okay, and it only seemed that he had some rough bruises, slowly the Ralts awakened a little. ‘’ Hey Titus, maybe we should go to the Pokemon center and see if your Pokemon is fine ‘’ Finny exclaimed worrying that Titus would not go there if she hadn’t suggested it first.

“If he could have done that one Confusion attack, I would have won this!” blurted out Titus, aiming his anger at Finny. But as quickly as he showed his glowing red eyes to Finny, he quickly rescinded, cleared his throat, and toned down his voice. No amount of anger could fix the truth in front of him: he lost and it was his fault.

“You’re right. Let’s get back to the Pokemon Center,” replied Titus in a more calm manner, though residues of anger remained. He walked towards the failure that fainted and took out his Poke Ball and recalled him back so he could heal.

“Why didn’t you fight hard enough?” He questioned his fallen knight bitterly. But he wasn’t going to complain loudly… yet.

Upon hearing Titus his comment on how he could win she shook her head “ If only you’d love your Pokemon as much as I do, you’d win. I think MawMaw could have taken another one or maybe more of your attacks” Finny exclaimed as she recalled her Pokemon except Fae in to her Pokeballs and pointed yonder, “ I think that the Pokemon Center is that way”. Finny was feeling a little conflicted, she both was happy she won and sad she’d hurt the Ralts but maybe it was a lesson for Titus.

The walk towards the Pokemon Center was awkward at best and tense at worse. Finny would prance her way to the Pokemon Center as if the world was filled with goodness, but Titus showed a muted response. The loss from the earlier Pokemon battle stung him, his honor as a Hastur. Even worse, people watched him lose. Whenever Finny would turn her head to Titus, he would simply turn away.

If Finny were to ask what was wrong, Titus would return with an apparent smile just to make her smile. The moment she turns back to her own little world, Titus would sulk again.

The two trainers arrived at the Pokemon Center where they gave their Pokemon to the nurse to heal their Pokemon. After getting their Pokemon back, they sat down together at an empty table. Titus took a quick glance at the entirety of the Pokemon Center. The place looked lively as nurses shuffled around passing out Poke Balls back to waiting trainers standing or sitting all over the place. For a massive city, it certainly fit in the atmosphere.

He tried to look away from the face of Titus’ defeat, but she was there and a loss was a loss no matter what angle Titus looked at it. Then, he looked at Finny, who he avoided eye contact during the entire trip to the Sangproctor Pokemon Center because he was still ashamed of losing to her. “I’m sorry. I shouldn’t have spoken up like that. It wasn’t polite,” spoke Titus, this time more sincerely. “I never expected person of weak stature to defeat me.”

Finny had decided to follow Titus to the Pokemon Center to make sure he’d treat his Pokemon well and wouldn’t scold them for losing, it was a good time to have her Pokemon healed up as well, mainly MawMaw as even though he didn’t took that much of a beating he probably did sustain some damage,

She sat down next to Titus who had apologized for his earlier speech, making her smile and nod showing she was fine with it, whenever finny nodded her hair would move with it just a little bit always getting in front of her eyes. While finny plucked the hair out of her face she looked at Titus who said something that sounded a little disrespectful towards her ‘’ Stature? What is that, is it a type of bread?’’ Finny asked as she wondered if she should be offended or not.

“It’s a… Wait. You don’t-” He squinted his eyes at Finny, startled at her lack of vocabulary. Her smile seemed genuine, but the young girl’s eyes looked as if they were staring blankly into space.

“What kind of lady doesn’t know what stature means?” Titus impulsively threw out the question almost accusing her of being stupid.

“I don’t, not that I’d consider myself a lady, you should be with my sister for that,’’ Finny said as she sighed, she didn’t like the fact that Titus almost made her sound like an idiot, she did have somewhat of an idea what the word meant but wasn’t too sure about it. Finny then kept silent and just looked at Fae who looked up at her trainer wagging her tail waiting for a signal on when to burn or bite Titus.

“Stature. Look it up,” finished Titus in a dismissive tone. Then, he turned to Fae and got nervous when he saw her belligerent stance against him. So, he cleared his throat and slowed down his words further to sound even more polite.

“Your sister? Is she… more polite than you?” asked Titus, trying his best to be nice to her. Titus crossed his fingers, hoping that Finny’s watchful spiritual guardian approved of that.

“Polite? No she’s a meanie, when was I impolite to you?’’ Finny asked raising a brow looking at Titus, she didn’t know what to think of him but she started to get an opinion about him and it wasn’t all too good yet, shaking her head she threw her arms backwards to stretch. She was getting quite sleepy, even if it wasn’t late at all, maybe she was just crashing but after the amounts of sugar she had that would be almost impossible’’

“No. You’re not impolite yet- Hey! Hey!” Titus got up in panic, almost knocking the chair over, and shook Finny in an attempt to save her from sleep. “We still have to talk about my Ralts! I didn’t get why would he just lose like that!”

Jumping up as the boy she had just met started shaking yelling at her, it almost seemed as if Titus was worried she’d fall asleep. Finny couldn’t resist giggling to herself once she had calmed down from the surprise of the sudden yell, though falling asleep like that was something in her skill set.

“Oraclair,” Finny said mumbling as she didn’t really like talking about her past, honestly she just wanted to get away from it all and thus decided to quickly change the topic. ‘’ Me asleep? Nah’’ Finny exclaimed while yawning again, it was just a little afternoon dip, maybe she was in need of more sugar! When Titus mentioned that he wanted to talk about why his Pokemon lost and that he couldn’t get it Finny shook her head, ‘’ That’s because my MawMaw is stronger, and my Pokemon love me and want to fight for me’’ She exclaimed while at the same time using her foot to interact with fae, who was playfully chasing it. Finny found Titus his reaction a little childish, as if he thought bad of her and great of himself, for this reason she was only more proud that she had won their battle.

“MawMaw is stronger?” Titus rolled his eyes over and scoffed at Finny’s answer, dismissing it as nothing but stupidity. “Maybe the Mawile is, but I had a perfect strategy for that. If only things played out the way I saw it,” accused Titus, giving Finny a sharp lethal look.

“We can fight again,’’ Finny said as she looked deep into ti’s eyes to show that she was serious, honestly she didn’t really like battling but she didn’t mind proving Titus his methods were wrong again and again until he knew he should treat his Pokemon better. Finny looked at Fae who was raring to go,” You know Ti, if I can call you that’’ Finny asked carefully. “I think you want to do too much battling, and I don’t battle enough, my Pokemon want to battle more and maybe even train more, while your Pokemon would like some rest here and there.” She continued before even getting an answer.

“Rest?! My Pokemon can't rest! As heir to the most powerful family, I have to be battle ready at all times!” Titus’ answer sounded out of place and provocative to Finny, especially to today’s Godai. But that was how he and his family viewed the world. They had to stay mighty in order to be mighty. Simply “resting” meant that they lose their noble status.

A noble status that doesn't exist anymore. Titus took out the family emblem and examined it. It was a symbol of power and prosperity, but also a painful reminder that their traditions don't matter.

Finny frowned a bit when Titus asked her what she was trying to say and looked at her feet ‘’ I was just trying to help ‘’ she said with frown wondering what was going to happen now. She shouldn’t even have tried to help, unless others Finny liked learning and adapting now she found out her Pokemon liked battling quite a bit she might even try a gym, but with titus his behaviour she didn’t even feel like it anymore, she let out a little sigh and waited for Titus his reply.

Only when he heard Finny’s reply that he let go of his attitude. He nodded, appreciating that FInny was trying to do her best to help him as a trainer.

“Okay… okay… what do you do to train your Pokemon?” asked Titus. However, he gulped, fearing the kind of weak-willed answer that may come out of Finny’s mouth.

‘’Hmm...’’ Finny started as she needed a bit to think ‘’ That depends on the Pokemon, for Fae I have her do tons of running and climbing which strengthens her little legs, Mawile does a lot of lifting for his upper body. I have Mini do a lot of precision training, happy and slushy are too young to fight so they get to rest, but i do have them do running to build condition, in playful ways I train them too so they listen well to me. Teddi only joined me recently so his training hasn’t started, then I have some other Pokemon who are stored for now but Rin is my strongest fighter, he’s not with us but he is amazing’’ Fin said as she talked with a lot of arm movements trying to add to her explanation.

Finny didn’t lie she just twisted her words only a little, it was true that Fae ran and climbed a lot but that was because it was always following finny around and always trying to climb onto finny for hugs or to being carried. Mawile did a lot of lifting as Happy often wants to be lifted by her big brother, and he lifts her and spnis her around like a helicopter. Mini Likes sweeping and helping Finny with her handy works, it had learned how to clean and even how to use scissors. The three younger members were mostly goofing around while looking for treats and cuddles, which they were very skilled at finding. Smiling at her own ingenuity. She then looked back at Ti ‘’ What do you think of that?’’

“Uhh… wow. I'm amazed.”He was dumbfounded, leaving his mouth open. He stared at her Pokémon who playing with her leg. Happy and Maw Maw were more kids than warriors; playing around with a trainer doesn’t make them the most powerful trainers. Titus frowned at it the more he compared to what Finny’s Pokemon was doing and to her training regimen. It seemed impossible. He was ready to point a finger at Finny and call her out as a stupid liar.

Then again… she won against a rightfully proclaimed ace trainer who carried the blood of the most powerful trainers in Godai’s history. Every time the scion relived the battle in his mind, he clenched his fists tighter. Still, he lost the battle and so did his grip. At the least, he had to hear what the victor said.

“So how much time do you commit to your training every day?” asked Titus, leaning forward.

Finny let out a huge “hmmm” once she was asked how much time she spent on her training every day,” That depends on the day but I try different ways of training through the day, most of my days are filled with hours of training, often around 8 or 10” Finny exclaimed as she needed some time calculating how much she trains on a regular day. ‘’ How about you Titus?’’ Finny asked while lifting up Fae and throwing her in the air tiny bits before catching her again, much to Fae her annoyance, who then puffed up her cheeks and looked at Finny who then placed Fae on her lap while patting it.

“Uhh…” Titus dragged on his voice,astonished again at how Finny seemed dedicated to training. 8 to 10 hours a day was usually the amount of time ace trainers spent their entire day to Pokemon training. Was Finny an ace trainer deep inside? But her girly clothes don't scream ‘elite and almighty’! And Finny smelled more like she frolicked through a rose garden than sweaty. Maybe it was the ambient atmosphere at the Pokemon Center, especially that he eyed on a group of girls puffing out a spray of perfume. Or maybe Finny was outright lying.

But, Titus snapped back straight away and showed off his normal smile once again. “A lot more. You could say 12 to 14 for me. My Pokemon must be constantly ready for battle!” He sported a powerful smile and showed off his arm muscles.

Finny shook her head with a surprised look on her face, she was surprised someone would torture their pokemon that much on a day, she wondered if it was even possible to train that much. It took a few seconds before her mouth closed, She then looked back at ti and wasn’t sure what to say. She honestly felt a bit uncomfortable to even talk to him but opened her mouth anyway, “ Don’t you think that is a little much, I mean Pokemon are living creatures, your friends!” Finny exclaimed as she looked at her legs.

“Yes, but they're also soldiers in my army!” Titus raised his voice in a triumphant crescendo, standing up and saluting himself. “Generally, I want them to be strong. They'll constantly fight for me and die for me. It's the way to bring out the best in Pokemon! If only Galahad knew…” Titus poured out his verbal passion to Finny in one grandiose poise, leaving him nearly breathless and excited. It was the romantic tale of warriors pouring out their passion and fear in a glorious ensemble of war. He was taught that way to see it that way. It was how his family lived and prospered and how he and his Pokemon be triumphant.

Titus never saw battles and war as people bashing each other until one fell dead. But that's how Finny saw it.

Finny sighed while shaking her head, she didn’t seem to be able to safe Titus and thus his poor Pokemon. She looked at the floor as anger filled through her, she was trying as hard as she could to not yell at him, even though Titus raised his voice at her which did scare her a little. Finny continued looking at the floor “ I think that Ralts would prefer training less and doing more fun stuff, he is not a machine” Finny said causing tears to well up in her eyes, wanting to run away from this mean and inconsiderate person.

“He’ll earn his ‘fun stuff’ when he’s a full fledged knight!” retorted Titus with a wave of his hand, unleashing his full arrogant attitude towards Finny. With a sharp breath, he continued pouring out his entire bravado. “Galahad knows nothing. When I make him into a warrior, he’s going to love the sweet taste of victory! I’ll show you!” finished Titus with an imposing smile at the end. He took out a Poke Ball and sent out Galahad on top of the table.

“Pokemon are meant to fight for their masters. In turn, we die for their Pokemon and look after them. It’s how the world turns,” explained Titus. “Without the glory of battle, how can humanity create bond with Pokemon? Isn’t that right, my little Galahad?” Titus leaned closer to his tiny squire, ready to dote him with lots of praises of his cuteness and his potential as a strong warrior.

But the young page turned around to his master with watery eyes. That trainer that shoved him into the front lines with only his selfish drive for ‘victory’ and ‘glory’. That trainer that let him get mauled by a Pokemon with a ton of sharp flesh-grinding teeth for hair without thought that he might die from that ‘friendly’ battle. He stumbled back as Titus’ hand got closer to him and crawled away leaving sounds of whimpers behind.

“Ga-Galahad?” concerned Titus as he tried to approach him again. This time, the shy Pokemon got on his legs and ran away from him, only to find Finny at the other side. That was the girl that sent out that monster with mouth-for-hair. No matter how angelic or pious the sweet Finny was, she seemed just as monstrous as the Mawile in battle. He tried to make a complete 180, but going back to Titus only for him to send him out to his death seemed suicidal. In a desperate attempt to save himself, he jumped down on the floor and ran for the nearest column to hide himself from the two.

“Buuuuut he is a Pokemon not a knight, they only fight when we tell them to, mine only fight if they want, im not forcing them to get hurt for no reason it is mean and sad,’’ Finny blurted out with a lot of anger in her voice. She couldn’t deal with all this commotion and felt a little uncomfortable. Finny sighed as she looked at the poor ralts being all scared around Titus. Finny looked at the ralts who ran away from Titus but seemed scared of Finny as well.

Finny took a deep breathe and spotted the ralts hiding behind a column she then knew that Ralts was scared of her and grabbed for Slushy her pokeball. Letting out the Isdan Vulpix who sneezed some ice in Finny’s face making her giggle. ‘’ Hey Slushers, can you relax that Raltsy, he isn’t feeling so fine? Slushy nodded and slowly moved over to the Ralts. As the vulpix slowly waddled towards the ralts and rubbed her face against Ralts as it slowly made a happy like bark sound hoping to cheer up the Ralts.

The moment the cream-colored vulpine Pokemon touched the panic-stricken knight, all of his shaking just… stopped. Just like that. And Galahad began to smile again. Suddenly, all the fears and anxiety wreaking havoc in him just vanished. Even the traumatic memory of being eaten alive by that mouth-for-hair monster was just a distant memory. When Slushy gave the miracle touch, a quiet hum of awe came out of the Ralts’ mouth. No more fears. Only the sweet touch of friendship and Galahad can’t help but love it.

“Huh?” Titus shook his head in disbelief, witnessing what he thought was a bizarre miracle. “How did… you do that?” That's unbelievable, Titus thought to himself. He crossed his arms quickly and jerkishly, frustrated that he, an ace trainer, couldn't do it.

“Slushy over there is just a real friend, she loves hugging and caring for others and ist a lovely little creature, she is also an ice type meaning she is cold blooded and will thus cool down those who she touches, meaning that it will calm down poor Raltsy’’ Finny said as she stood up and slowly moved over to the Ralts, got on her knees when she was close and smiled at it. ‘’ Hey there little friendly, don’t worry about it okay? I’ll try to talk some sense in your trainer’’ She said as she carefully pat ralts his head.

Galahad hiccuped as her hand touched her forehead, bouncing around as if he was a spring. It was a completely weird feeling from a weird person. However after one or two pats, Galahad hummed out a low-key melody that almost sounded like he was purring. Titus tried to do the same, but now Galahad whined and even backed away a little from his master. The young Hastur recoiled his hand away in complete dismay. The look of defeat showed all of his face. It was as if Galahad was not Titus’ friend.

“Galahad. You know everything I do is for you to be better.” Titus plopped down on his chair sulking in front of him. But, Galahad shook his head slightly in fear. Titus growled in a low tone while clenching his fist. Even though the frost Pokemon cooled him down, he was still unwilling to follow Titus. Begging wasn't going to help.

He had no choice. The worst thing that could happen was his own team turning against him. He sighed and decided on entertaining Finny’s idea.

“Uhh… Finny?” Titus looked up to her with a desperate tone and expression. “Do you think you could help me?”

Finny was surprised that Titus admitted that he needed help, it was like he agreed that his methods of training weren’t good and he needs to take better care of his Pokemon. Finny nodded and took in a deep breath of air before looking back at the shaking Ralts, she then eyed back at Titus ‘’ I could help I think, I think your Ralts doesn’t agree with your methods of training, I think it be better to actually let your Pokemon decide if they want to battle or if they want to train, because if pokemon can’t rest their training won’t be as effective’’ Finny started, struggling as sweat dropped down the shy girl's face, she hated talking and now she was giving a whole speech to Titus but this was necessary. Taking a deep breathe she continued ‘’ Pokemon are friends, relax with them talk with them and play with them, have them relax and rest and just treat them as you would want to be treated. I wouldn’t want to do a 18 hour training, it just be too much, why not do just a few hours here and there and have way more fun’’. Finny was out of breath and shaking a little as she didn’t feel too comfy talking but was proud of herself speaking up for Titus his Pokemon. Seeing that her trainer wasn’t feeling too well Slushy jumped onto Finny her lap and then tried to climb towards her shoulder licking her cheek in the process, hoping to cool her trainer down. Being really proud of Finny speaking up, Fae joined Slushy and jumped on Finny her lap. There was a little ying-yang fire and ice circle on Finny her lap as the two foxes cuddled up with each other, as they knew if they’d fall asleep Finny wouldn’t move.

But, Titus couldn’t meet the same bold expression Finny showed. His eyes wandered away from her frowning at this crazy idea gulping because it went against everything he learned.

Titus was a descendant of gallant knights of the old. They never had this thing called ‘fun’ and ‘hugs’. They trained and died on the old glory days of battle. It was how the old world of Godai turned. The Hasturs were as strict as any officer in the military. And yet, he turned back to her leaned closer trying to find out why.

“But how can my Pokemon get stronger if I can train them hard enough?”

‘’ they get stronger because they do train, but if you let them rest and have fun they will want to fight fully for you, and if you overwork them they become so tired they won’t even improve’’ Finny explained, kind of scared by how Titus was moving around and making a fist, was he going to hit her? Was he so frustrated and angry he wanted to hurt her? Finny felt scared and kind of wanted to ran away but decided to try and relax and not make the worst of it.

“Would your Pokemon sleep on your lap and Would you let them do that if they wanted? ‘’ Finny asked as she looked at the two foxies on her lap. It may sound like a weird question but it actually was to see if Ti trusted his Pokemon and visa versa. It seemed like Titus and his Pokemon didn’t have a great bond, Finny hoped that she could help learn the trainer she met earlier to treat his Pokemon in a better way. ‘’ Well. how about you just try to have more fun and only train like a few hours a day it will be a much better experience’’ She said in a considerate voice.

“You want me to… not train?” He asked Finny in a sheepish voice. But then, the young scion frowned at that idea.

“I want you to train less, like a few hours here and a few hours there just not all day as there should be time for fun’’ Finny answered as she rubbed both foxies heads playing the purrchestra. Patting and babying her Pokemon was like therapy for the young girl as it made her cooldown and feel relaxed. ‘’ I think it is important to have your Pokemon be happy and content, if your Pokemon isn’t content it might run away or just slack off, but if it loves you it is more likely to give it his all and do everything it needs to to win’’ Finny proudly explained thinking back of some of fae her victories.

And then, Titus looked up with a sudden revelation on his face. “It… it makes sense.” Titus nodded to Finny, conceding every argument that was about to happen between the two. He sat up and leaned forward once again, willing to listen to what the victor had to say.

“So… uhh… playing with them is… another way of getting stronger?” For a person that came from a family of powerful Pokemon trainers, Titus couldn’t wrap his head around that idea. He looked at Galahad with a worried look, and the Psychic-type wouldn’t even turn his head. The tiny Ralts made a small glance to Titus as he sense a sudden change in his master’s heart, but he averted his eyes away from him, fearing that it was nothing but a ruse.

‘’ Not only playing, but also eating together and just relaxing together helps as well in the bonding process’’ Finny explained as she found it hard to hold such a long conversation she wasn’t good at paying attention in class and now she had to be the one that was teaching. ‘’ Basically what I am trying to say is that if your Pokemon don’t consider you a friend they won’t be able to give their all for you’’ Finny continued still petting her foxies.

“Okay,” sighed Titus, bowing his head to her in resignation. He gazed at Finny with his ears fully open to her. “You convinced me. Now what do we do?”

Finny itched her head as Titus asked her what to do, she looked at yonder and then shook her head, she kind of wanted to get her Pokemon supplies before hopping on the train towards her next location but couldn’t leave Titus struggling like this. “ Why don’t you show him that you can be kind and have fun instead of being a strict boss” Finny said wondering what would be the best thing for her to do now.

“Uhh… uhh…” Titus stammered, blinking as his eyes stared into nothingness and his mouth numbly open. He shook his head in a furious manner, snapping himself back to reality. But still, he stared at Finny with a shocked expression on his face. “Hmm… I don’t know how to do that…”

“ Well for starters why don’t you get or make your Pokemon something they like” Finny asked as she shook her head, wondering it this person was joking because how could you not know how to make your Pokemon happy. Finny wondered if it be okay to show Titus the ropes or if she should say goodbye and leave for her own safety so they wouldn’t spot her.

But, Titus shot down Finny’s answer, deliberately shaking his head. “One of my Pokemon is a warmongering hugger. Another one tried to steal your treats. My third one is lazy. My fourth one is too young to fight. And then there’s him,” explained Titus with a flair of sarcasm, pointing his finger at Galahad. He tried to lean closer to the point of violating Galahad’s personal space and screamed at his ear.

“Can’t you love me!?”

Galahad screamed in horror and retreated to Finny’s arms, apparent on where his loyalties lie. The frustrated Titus let out a growl. “It’s harder to deal with them than you think!”

It seemed like Titus was overreacting a little and and just needed some help in how to handle his Pokemon. “Mousey stole the croissant because it was bored and probably craving something yummy, you just have to feed er more and let her know stealing is bad and it will all be fine,” Finny said gasping for air after as she wasn’t used to making long sentences.

Finny didn’t have any time to relax either as the Ralts jumped at her when he was startled by Titus “Hey you silly little tree, I know you are scared but he actually does love and care for you he just doesn’t know how to show it, so don’t worry okay?” Finny said in a calm and friendly voice as she addressed the terrified Pokemon.

“Wait. Did you just call Galahad a tree?” pointed out Titus.

The small Pokemon gave a subtle nod, oddly obeying to her soothing call, showing his full back to Titus as Galahad paid attention to the beautiful inviting voice of hers. He raised his head looking to her hand, waiting to see if Finny could spoil the timid knight even more by touching his head.

“I didn’t realize that Pearl was hungry,” admitted Titus, though he was not used to humbling himself to a trainer that looked like she was ready to collapse at any moment. “And why is my Galahad looking at you like that?”

“I think you're too focussed on training that you don’t see what your Pokemon need and want, if you’d be a bit kinder to them they’d all open up and feel better” Finny said as she continued petting the ralts. She eyed over to the Pokemon in her arms and asked “ why don’t you try hugging with you trainer I am sure he won’t hurt you” Finny said as she put her thumb up hoping to show the Pokemon it all be fine.

But Titus and Galahad swiveled towards each other, opening their mouths in exacerbation. Then, they turned towards Finny, not uttering any sound but simply showing how stupid the idea was. Still, she sported a smile and was adamant on what she said. The Ralts looked at the strict trainer behind him and then turned to Finny. It was worth a try.

Slowly, he pivoted his entire body to Titus, looking back at Finny several times, before facing his own master. He was still shaking to the core, but to be honest it was the bravest Galahad was ever going to be. Besides, the young “tree” could count on Finny to rescue him should Titus punch him. That was how scary he was.

Titus looked up to Finny, waiting for her permission to go ahead. All this time, the young trainer bit his lip as doubts began to crept on him. It wasn’t going to work. The moment he laid a finger on the Ralts’ head, he was going to teleport back to Finny’s arms.

Or it could work. All he truly wanted was to fight alongside Galahad.

He took off his right glove and went closer to the tiny Pokemon. Titus could have withdrew his hand, accusing Finny that her idea of bonding with Pokemon was stupid and ludicrous. He could have shamed her in front of the entire Pokemon Center. But then, he found himself touching the soft baby skin of Galahad. His one thumb stroked the entire head as light as possible.

Galahad made no movements so Titus continued to console him with his fingers. And as he continued to dote on the top of the knight’s head, he muttered in silence how they could journey together and to be friends forever. That was one of his deepest desires, but he never dared to show it. Only because it showed weakness and a Hastur never shows weakness.

Then, a small cry escaped from the Ralts’ mouth, which alarmed Titus. Galahad sounded like he was grunting, but he didn’t back away from Titus.

Rather, it sounded like Galahad was enjoying all of it.

‘’ Don’t worry little one, I am sure Titus is trying his very best’’ Finny exclaimed as she tried to soothe and calm the Pokemon with a smile on her face, she was happy that this proud and strong person listened to her. Looking at how the Ralts was enjoying his trainers attention Finny thought it might be time for step 2 ‘’ Why don’t you hold him or at least hug him, and maybe apologize for hurting him’’ Finny said, being really curious how Titus would do this.

“Apologize?” Titus shot back with a proud and overly dignified face, shaking his head furiously. “I can hug him, but I don’t owe him an apology.” Galahad yelped and threw Titus’ thumb away, rewarding Titus with his own contempt. If Titus doesn’t give the little “tree” a nice head rub, then his master doesn’t deserve much love.

Finny shook her head as for one second she had forgotten how much of an hardhead Titus was. Looking at Galahad who pushed his trainer back Finny realised that the two had ways to go. ‘’ Maybe you don’t owe him an apology, but you did push him too far and do things he didn’t want to’’ Finny said as she looked at the floor kind of scared that Titus would snap at her.

“I don’t,” spoke Titus with a straight face. “But… he does deserve attention.” He bowed his head, surrendering to Finny once again. This was definitely out of his nature. He was a proud knight who wasn’t willing to bow down to anyone, but right now he was desperate for some affection. To do that, Titus just had to do what Finny asked. So, he cupped Galahad from the table and enveloped him with his arms. The young trainer looked up to Finny nervously waiting for another sign of approval, crading Galahad on his arms like a little baby.

Galahad peeked up to stare at the kind girl. The more Titus rocked him, the more he hummed out a quelling tune. Titus sighed, feeling like he accomplished something.

Finny smiled at how Titus cuddled his Pokemon, which was a normal thing to do in her mind and thus she was feeling good that she was able to be a help. Winking at the Ralts while letting out a little smile aimed at Titus, she wanted to show that she thought he was doing well. “ Feels good right?” Finny asked as she wondered about how they had experienced it.

Galahad gave out a small nod to Finny, humming out a lulling tune as Titus continued to sway him like a gentle wave. “Well I’ll be darned. He seems to like it,” remarked Titus. “Still… I don’t see how babysitting my Pokemon means winning battles. It seems… contradictory.”

“If you treat your pokemon well and like they are friends instead of tools they will always want to fight for you” Finny exclaimed full of pride, the young and shy girl was proud of her way of being a trainer and even if it was hard for her she’d stand up for it!

“I’d like that… if that were true,” admitted Titus, though he never attempted to speak as loudly as her. In fact, he kept his mouth shut after marveling that sudden burst of confidence that erupted from Finny, especially that it seemed out of her nature. “Okay. How about a rematch, but you can use Galahad? Let’s see if your theory holds true to what you say?”

“A rematch?” Finny muttered as she felt a little shy, but she couldn’t say no as it would make her seem like she didn’t have faith in her ideas on how to train. “ Okay, only if Raltsy agrees to it, if not can I use Fae?” Finny muttered as she looked at her feet a bit afraid of this challenge but Fae sensed this and rubbed her head against Finny to cheer her up.

Titus set the Ralts down in the middle of the table. Both trainer’s eyes fell on the young knight. He was now the center of attention. It dawned on him of a dreadful task the Ralts was going to do again. The Ralts sighed with a complete solemn resignation; he was going back there on the field of battle. He was going to wound himself, but this time he was going to fight for some complete stranger. Plus even if Titus agreed, he wasn’t so sure if fighting against his trainer was the right thing to do.

But Galahad’s master gave him a firm nod. “It’s okay. I won’t hold it against you.” Then, his eyes pointed towards Finny repeatedly.

“I’ll lose to your Fennekin. It’s… simply statistics,” stated Titus, though he eyed away from her because he wasn’t proud to admit it. “I’m kinda curious to see.” He tapped his chin with his index finger, inquisitively eyeing on his newly caught Pokemon. Galahad turned back to Titus, showing his concealed eyes. The tiny Ralts cooed to Titus like a child asking for guidance. The young trainer gave an encouraging nod with a warm smile on his face, giving him permission. Titus knew it all to well from Galahad’s expression. It was a sign of unwavering loyalty and the little knight was to be rewarded.

Then to Titus’ surprise and delight, he waddled towards Finny and raised his head, wanting to be petted again.

Finny smiled at the interaction between Titus and Galahad, it was good that they finally communicated and agreed on something, she was also surprised to hear Titus say that Fae would win which felt like acknowledgement. As Galahad wobbled over to her she happily patted its head, “ we can win this don’t you think little one?” Finny asked encouraging the Ralts. “Who will you be using, and where will we battle?” Finny asked eyeing at Titus.

The tiny Pokemon cried out, bursting forth in confidence. Titus nodded at Galahad, accepting the two as his opponents. He gave a playful wink to Finny and his not-so-timid knight, happily accepting their challenge. It was something that he wanted all this time.

However, Galahad’s smile was erased as Titus pulled out a small Poke Ball to show to Finny and tossed it in the air. “Well… I’d like to test him using use my personal greatest…” Titus mused.

Looking at how Galahad’s smile changed when Titus pulled out his Pokeball Finny wondered what kind of Pokemon his opponent would use. Shaking her head, she decided that she wouldn’t worry and try to help Galahad win the challenge as well as she could. The young girl was rather fired up and ready to do this, yet she was a bit nervous as she didn’t know a lot about the Pokemon she was going to command. With a little nervous twitch she eyed at Galahad, ‘’ Just making sure I know all you can do!’’ Finny explained as she happily started discussing things with the Ralts who just nodded his head to anything that sounded familiar.

Galahad nodded definitely at Finny and then swiftly turned back to Titus and brandished a tiny fist in front of him. Titus noticed his eyes shaking at the thought of battling again, but this time he seemed like he was set for it. Titus smiled; he thought it was cute. But Titus eyed on Galahad’s expression and noted the same kind of reaction everytime one of his Pokemon wanted to battle. Everytime one of his Pokemon does that, they always wanted to prove something towards their trainer. It’s hard to find out what they’re exactly thinking, but it seemed like the Ralts wanted to prove some sort of bravery to him. He eyed on Galahad, sporting his proud smile towards his tiny knight. “Alright. Show me what you got,” commented Titus.

“I’ll let you choose the battlefield this time!”

“Battlefield? Doesn’t have this Pokecenter have a field to battle’’ Finny asked as she itched the side of her head. She went from feeling excited to feeling super nervous and scared every two seconds thus it was hard to constantly be fired up. Finny took a deep breath and popped her head to the side and saw what looked like a field where one could battle “Yay i was right, will save us having to walk’’ Finny said as she stretched out again “Now I will only have to get up’’ she said sighing a little while looking at the foxes sleeping on her lap, ‘’ hey sleepyheads you got to wake up for a bit’’ Finny said as she lifted up Slushy, gave her a big hug and then returned her to her Pokeball. She then lifted up Fae hugged her and placed the little fox on her shoulder, “Now you can cheer us on” Finny joked as she got ready to make the long journey to the field where they were going to battle.

“Alrighty,” nodded Titus. “Let’s head there.” The two got up from their chairs and headed to the battlefield. While he followed Finny to the designated battlefield, he hummed out a nursery rhyme while tossing the Poke Ball repeatedly in the air. It was an ancient tune that rummers would sound whenever they march to battle. Titus felt like he was proudly marching out to battle and glory once again. As he exited the Pokemon Center, he eyed on his Psychic-type companion nesting and cooing on top of Finny. He looked so sweet and beautiful bobbing his head as Finny continued to walk.

Finny looked at the little Raltsy before they went into the ring, she smiles a little as she pat his wobbly little shrub like had, “ your such a cute little tree, just remember that, oh and remember that you are super strong and that we can win” Finny said as she punched her hand in the air while doing some funny movements making Galahad smile.

“It’s… Galahad…” He tried to politely correct her, but Finny giggled and whispered in the friends ear, some names of moves could be heard and the little pokemon nodded when he knew what they were. “ It’s nice I read up on you little buddy, I’ve wanted my own little tree too” Finny said in a very excited manner. Her outside demeanor didn’t reflect how she was feeling at the moment, she was scared and nervous but knew she could do this. Finny took a deep breath before getting on her serious face, “ Let’s do this” .

“I’m ready as you are,” replied Titus, snatching the Poke Ball in the air for the last time. Titus placed his left hand inside the pocket, looking cool and confident as the last battle. But he was concealing the fidgeting that was happening in his left pocket.

In fact, he was getting worried. He forced out a smile, but then he bit his lip again. Titus was going to send out his Piplup named Imperator and he never played nice in battle. He and Titus shared the same thing: win at all cost, no matter what. If he threw the Poke Ball and sent him out, Galahad may not liked him anymore. He didn’t want to lose the battle, but he didn’t want to lose Galahad too.

But the thing was that Finny and Galahad were dead set on doing this, and so Titus nodded, ready to fulfill their wishes.

He tossed the Poke Ball into the air and summoned the battled-hardened Water-type Pokemon on the ground. The little flightless Pokemon scraped his feet on the ground as if he was ready to charge. His eyes and beak pointed at Galahad’s horn, ready to shatter it into a million pieces. If Imperator was going to make Galahad cry out in pain, the horn was where he would hit. He gave a small nod to Galahad, slightly unhappy that this adorable tree was his opponent. Imperator doesn’t want to hurt his new friend, especially when under the command of a nice girl like Finny. Still, true to his nature and duty, he was not going to give the newbie any letup.

“Your move.” He spoke.

Finny squealed as her opponent brought out a Piplup, the cute penguin seemed like an ultimate victim for cuddles but his dangerous glare seemed like he wouldn’t be up for that. Finny gulped as she saw that her Partner in this battle was shaking a little, “ Don’t worry little one I have a plan, if you listen to me we should be fine!” Finny exclaimed as she saw Fae was cheering her on from the side. “ We can’t lose now” She muttered as she moved up her sleeves while taking a deep breathe.

Finny took a second to analyze the situation, as her opponent was a water type a magical leaf would be a good way to do damage, though not the best way to start out, Finny knew it be best to make sure her opponent wouldn’t do as much damage to the fragile tree. “ Let’s start out with a Growl” Finny called out with a bit of an evil smirk.

While Looking a tad confused Galahad decided to go through with the call Finny made and showed her a little nod. The Ralts got ready and let out an endearing growl hoping to startle the Totus, lowering the damage his attacks would do.

“Well… not bad,” complemented Titus, but it was anything but sincere. He growled and bashed his toe on the ground at just the fact that Galahad was willing to obey her. The fact that she was able to do it and not him showed how much weaker Titus was. He couldn’t accept it for one bit.

But Imperator sported a smile back at his opponent. The Growl attack surprised him, but the adorable “tree” was trying hard. The Piplup didn’t want to crush him and his cute effort, but his master had other thoughts.

“I guess I’ll have to reply with this! Bubble!” Titus ordered in a much bitter tone than before.

The Piplup opened his beard and unleashed a barrage of spheres at the opponent.

‘’Okay Raltsyface, hang tight they won’t even hurt that much’’ Finny said as she was a little worried about the fragile little tree but knew that he could hang in there.

“Galahad!” commented Titus, trying to claim some superiority over her by announcing it.

The Barrage of bubbles floated towards Galahad and burst close to him, the little shockwaves that came from the bubbles hurt him but his battle-harded face didn’t show any pain.

‘’ Good on you little one, now lets counter with a magical leaf’’ Finny encouraged towards Galahad who gave his temporary trainer a small nod before slashing up a rather large handful of magical leaves hurling them towards the Piplup, Finny knew the type advantage of this attack would hurt the cute little penguin quite bad, making her feel a little uncomfortable as she didn’t want any Pokemon to have to feel pain but this battle was a necessary one.

The radiant shining leaves twirled towards the penguin. Its sharp blades grazed through the Water-type Pokemon, wounding him a thousand times all over his body. When the attack subsided, bruises and cuts formed all over Imperator. The Piplup wheezed, trying to control his breath. The attack was too much for the little penguin Pokemon, but he was not visibly angry at that super effective attack. Underneath the fatigue, Imperator was giggling and laughing at Galahad. The timid little “tree” was suddenly brave. It was an awesome sight to see the little knight stand up proudly on the battlefield.

“Magical Leaf!? What else you’ve been keeping from me?” complained Titus. He didn’t know that Galahad had that attack, which meant that there was no way for Finny to know it instantly. Titus and Imperator growled together, but both of them had different thoughts. Imperator was willing to go at it a few more, even if it meant suffering more bruises. But Titus couldn’t stand Finny getting an upper hand again. This time with a Pokemon she never fully understood.

He could simply aim for the horn with a physical attack and make Galahad panic. Then, finish him and show Finny what he really was capable of. But Imperator turned to his master with a sharp glare. The Piplup saw the blood in Titus’ eyes, knowing he wants Galahad possibly dead. So with a loud cry, Imperator barked at him.

“Really?” Imperator narrowed his eyes. Titus immediately relented.

“Okay. I get it… Another Bubble!” ordered Titus. This time, his voice was a lot humble. If he couldn’t hit Galahad too hard and couldn’t stand that Finny can command the Ralts well, then he saw only one outcome.

As the array of bubbles flew towards the nervous ralts he closed his eyes and protected them with his arms, hoping that it soon would be over. Finny was not having any of that though, she wasn’t letting Galyface getting more damage than he should, taking a deep breathe she looked at the bubbles and smiled, ‘’ Now use magical leaf once again, cut through the bubbles before reaching your opponent!’’ Finny commanded proudly, Fear and passion combined seamless through her voice, she was having a great time but wasn’t ready to accept that of herself yet.

The Ralts fiercely nodded as he braced himself and threw his arms up conjuring a storm of magical leafs that cut right through the remaining bubbles, some still popped but Galahad remained strong, he could endure this pain with ease, as the last of his leaves had cleared the bubbles and were now flying at his opponent, at a very high speed almost as if they were a flurry of tenfolds of darts. Galahad sighed in relief, this girl actually was able to lead him well, he at that moment had decided to give this fight his all, fighting was fun and now he didn’t want to lose anymore.

But before the Magical Leaf attack landed a final blow on the beleaguered Water-type Pokemon, Titus rushed in and spread his entire body wide. Imperator gasped in shock as the shuriken of leaves pelted on Titus’ chest, which forced the young heir to kneel on the ground. The young trainer grunted and cursed at himself. It was painful, especially when taking in a fully determined attack from a Pokemon.

“You did good Galahad…” muttered Titus. Despite the pain, Titus smiled and nodded with swagger. In fact, he took worse years before when his family trained him. He gave a silent nod of respect to Finny and Galahad. At least they know how to fight now. Still, he couldn’t say more. The scion turned away from Finny, wondering why he was prevented from going all out against Finny. Especially that apparently she new more about his own Pokemon that Titus did.

Finny was on the offensive, she and the Ralts had a good feeling together, the little tree like Pokemon was rather into it. Finny watched as the magical leafs tore through the bubbles she wondered how the poor penguin was going to react, she felt bad for hurting him but that was part of the fight. To her surprise even before the leaves hit her target, his trainer jumped in front of the attack, surprising both Finny and Galahad, together they rushed forward to see if the young boy was okay. On closer inspection he seemed well and asked if he could forfeit, Finny nodded “I don’t want anyone to get hurt, so yes that be a good plan. Smiling a little at the Ralts she got on her knee and pat him, then she also pat the Piplup hoping he was well. Getting back up she went to give Titus a hand ‘’ I think you have fun and strong Pokemon’’ Finny said full of praise as she was still shaking a little from the overload of adrenaline.

He looked up to Finny, blushing slightly when she showered him with praise. All of his negative thoughts about her disappeared and a quiet voice came out and said, “Thank you.” Titus grabbed Finny’s hand and hoisted himself so he can stand up.

He turned towards his own Pokemon, who put out a small smile when he realized he won. “Now if only you showed your bravery when you were battling her Mawile…” mused Titus, but he could only give out a small nod as a compliment. The young boy was proud of his Ralts for fighting hard against Titus’ most battle-hardened Pokemon, but Galahad shook when Titus’ gaze fell on him and retreated back a little bit.

“Maybe this will earn your trust?” Titus knelt down on the ground started petting his soft head. For a moment, the tiny Pokemon forgot why he was scared in the first place.

“Am… I doing it right Finny?” asked Titus, seeking her approval. He was still uncomfortable doing this petting thing.

Battle Summary


Finny gently smiled as she saw the scene afold in front of her eyes, the Pokemon was still shy but seemed like it was slowly approving his own master. Finny was feeling proud, she had a fun feeling in her belly and knew that she did well. The young girl calmly eyed back at Titus she nodded ‘’ You did well, this will help you a lot with building a bond between the two of you’’ Finny said smiling softly, she was quite proud of Titus and knew that his bonds with his Pokemon were going to Improve. “How does it feel Ti?’’ she asked wondering how being kind to his Pokemon instead of being so strict was feeling, in the end Pokemon were supposed to be great friends and not tools of war.

“Confusing,” spat out Titus. His eyes narrowed at that same crazy idea that Finny was spouting out. The young boy continued to graze the top of Galahad’s head, but it was less affectionate than before. The little knight pushed Titus’ hand away, because he felt no more affection and effort from Titus. Only the confusion and absurdity inside him. Titus sighed and slouched forward, knowing he failed again in trying to coo his little Pokemon.

“Well.. where I come from, affection is… umm… an unimportant thing.” Titus spoke to Finny as calm and solemnly as possible, expecting some form of rebuttal from her. “So this is all new to me…”

He slanted his eyebrows as the memories of his special family. The special family that dominated the aristocracy of Godai, which no longer exists. The family that earned the scorn of every person in the country.

“My family only cares about power, so petting and hugging is a secondary thing. To make sure that we stay forever on top, we constantly train and hone our skills as Pokemon trainers. We aren’t allowed to be beneath anyone. Not even the Champion. People call us ‘elitists’ but that only makes us more invincible.” He finished describing his noble house strictly and proudly.

“Normally, people who care about their Pokemon too much gets swept aside. But then you won against me twice.”

The young sasqueen frowned as noticed that Ti struggled to pet the Ralts, she felt bad for the two of them but knew that they would learn in the near future. When Finny heard Titus saying that affection was not a common thing in his life Finny looked at her feet and shook her head ‘’ It wasn’t in mine, well in my family but not for me’’ Finny muttered as she continued looking at her feet. ‘’ I just want to give my Pokemon what I didn’t have, a lovely home, my pokemon are the family I never had and we just make the best of our little weird family’’ Finny continued muttering as she didn’t like talking about these things, she prefered happy topics, like Cute Pokemon or Chocolate. Itching her head while thinking of a way to change the subject the young fox Pokemon trainer jumped up a little and out of nowhere asked ‘’ What is your favourite dessert*.

“Wait a minute!” Titus pointed at her red handed. “What happened to your backstory?” But Finny kept up the big happy expression on her face. Titus frowned at her, seeing through the playful mask Finny put on. But Galahad jumped up and down at the thought of sweets, so Titus sighed and gave in. But, Finny’s tragic backstory lingered in his mind as if he was still concerned for her.

“I… are you hungry for desert?” asked Titus.

‘Cookies? Tiramisu? Chocolate? It all sounded good, there were so many yummy desserts and she could never choose which to eat, thus she would often eat many at the same time to deal with that dilemma. When Titus asked if she was hungry for dessert she nodded gently, summoning a cheeky smile on her face while her starry eyes twinkled for treasure. She then shook her head a little, ‘’ Dessert? Me? Why would I be hungry for Dessert, Oh uhm, I mean why wouldn’t I be hungry for Dessert’’ Finny continued, hoping she wouldn’t confuse Titus too much, but this should be enough to change the topic completely. ‘’ I am a bit of a glutton, buuuuut nothing is wrong with a bit of belly bribery now is it?’’ Finny continued while imagening all the different kind of sweets she could have.

“Hmm…” Titus pondered for a moment. However, the thought of cramming down sugar wasn’t in Titus’ mind.

Then, Titus’ tiny Pokemon soldiers swarmed around his feet, jumping up and down happily at the sound of delicious sweets. Their happy squeals broke Titus’ concentration as they circled around the feet, chanting for sweets.

“It’s going to make you fat!” object Titus, worried that increased weight will slow them down. But they countered by simply staring to Finny, in hopes that she sways Titus.

As Titus army of Pokemon puppy eyed Finny she knew that she had to help them on their quest for sweets. ‘’ Buuuut Tiiitus, Did you know sugar is energy and they will burn those calories right away with moving thus it’s practically not unhealthy’’ Finny said giggling a little as she wondered how this thing would go. She found it hard to sway people or to even discuss with someone. Her sympathy for the sweet loving Pokemon were bigger than her fear of conflict, ‘’ I do think that having chocolate cake would be a good plan, I am going anyways’’ Finny said smiling a little. .

The two Pokemon continued to beg for the sweets and with Finny teasing Titus forced him to give in to their demands.

“Fine. If it’s going to make you guys happy, I’ll give you some,” groaned Titus. The two Pokemon cheered while he bit his tongue in a sour manner.

Finny raised her eyebrows as the stars in her eyes sparkled brightly and full of joy, it was almost as if her eyes could light up a whole room, the premise of baked goods was enough to fill the young trainer with enthousiast and almost completely diminished her normally shy and modest personality. With a bit of Theater Finny picked up Fae and placed the little fox on her head ‘’ you must be tired from all the walking’’ she said singingly, it was certainly noticeable that she was happy. Following Titus she wondered what to do next, maybe she had been out in the open too long and was it time to continue towards her next destination.

“You seem a bit too happy…” mused Titus, worried that she might be mental. The two were not far from the bakery, as they turned to the right at the next intersection. Cutting through the crowd was not as bad. Several people and Pokemon migrated indoors as they noticed that the sky was darkening. He was a bit relieved by that, yet he was still worried about Finny. She may sing a happy tune, but something was off.

“So what made you want to go on a Pokemon journey?” Titus turned towards her to give her the fullest of attention. Did he want to know? Yes. Did he really care about whatever Finny was feeling? No.

The young fox enthusiast’s mind drifted away by the thought of indulging on countless of baked sweets and goods. Finny was a special breed of sweet tooth, one that was able to feast on enormous amounts of sugar without ever reaching a fill. The struggle of what foods to pick had already begun, and thus she was focussing more on this than on Titus his question why she became a Pokemon Trainer . Silent followed for a few seconds before she stood still and smiled mischievously from ear to ear while blurting‘’ Chocolate croissants’’ out loud. After that the young girl decided to hide in her jacket while she looked for a way out of this, ‘’ Oh and uhm because well it’s better than being at home ‘’ she said in a much softer tone while shaking her head. This is what she’d get for dreaming off mid conversation, though blurting out random things was still better than running into very well hidden ninja lampposts.

“Better than being at home?” questioned Titus. He moved closer to Finny, pressing for more information. “Why is it better here than- There it is!”

His interrogation was cut short. They were here: the most high class restaurant ever. Titus exclaimed, dragging her to the entrance. “Only the greatest people in Godai can enter in and I want to give you a little taste.” Like a gentleman, he bowed to Finny before gesturing her to get into the door. The two could see the dimly golden lit aristocrat-like atmosphere inside with patrons coming in and out wearing elaborate dresses and coats only worn in formal events. It was the perfect place for Titus.

And only for Titus. No commoner allowed.

Galahad and Imperator approached to a sample dessert shown at the glass window. It looked delicious from afar, but then the two gasped and gagged at what they saw. They eyed on that disgusting oozing thing above it. The thing had brown ooze coming out of it while it was stuffed with green slime. Then, the thing erupted a red liquid and drenched it along with the plate. Apparently, it was a croissant and it was a pricey one at that.

It was the one Titus wanted. As far as he was concerned, he could afford it.

Following behind Titus and his Pokemon Finny had already dreamed off again thinking that Titus, the penguin and the tree would be a really good title for a movie, she quickly snapped out of it realising they had reached their destination. Taking a big glance through the shops front wondering if it was really as great as Titus made it be, she realised this wasn’t an ordinary bakery. Something like this was called a patisery or at least she remembered something like that, it was very fancy and a place she’d probably meet her parents or sister in. As Titus hold the door Finny froze and looked back at Titus ‘’ uuh, are you sure this is a good idea’’ she asked while shaking in her boots.

“You… have the money, do you?” asked Titus. Even if she didn’t, he wouldn’t mind paying for her. Courtesy from Titus, the son of the most noble family of Godai.

Finny scratched her head and looked at Titus ‘’ uhm I think so, but- but ‘’ She continued, having no idea what to really answer, she hadn't even seen the prizes yet. As Finny started sweating and shaking all the sounds around her slowly turned into a tsunami of sound that was about to crash into the young girl. As tears formed in her eyes she turned back and ran off ‘’ I am sorry, I can’t’’ she muttered while freezing in place and thought

“Wait! Finny!” Titus tried to grab Finny’s arm, but her arm moved away faster than him. Before he could look up, Finny was running away and then gone. And now Titus and his Pokemon found themselves in an awkward spot as the center of the scene. Even worse, everyone was watching and they made Titus blush even more.

“She had to leave me like that! Ughh… people are watching… But… why does she hate that place?” He grabbed his hair as if he was going to yank it off his head. “Follow me!” Titus gestured to the two Pokemon to follow him, and the three ran in pursuit, shoving through the crowd as he fought his way just to find a glimpse of her.

Suddenly, the crowd grew dense again. Titus sliced and shoved his way through. It was even worse as they seemed to fight back by brushing up his shoulders. Several people cursed at him for it, but he was all focused on finding Finny. Then, Titus stopped running in the middle of the sidewalk and saw a familiar orange tail buried within the masses.

“Finny! Finny!” yelled Titus. Imperator and Galahad caught up to Titus, but the Ralts was already out of breath.

“You can’t catch up!?” chastised Titus. But, he never pressed the tiny Psychic-type further so he scooped him up to continue closing the distance on the fox trainer. “Finny! Finny! Wait!”

Finny took the first turn and halfway down the block she leaned against the wall, slowly sliding down till she was sitting, at this time her Fennekin tackled into her. Fae rubbed her soft face against Finny’s while carefully licking her tears. Finny Couldn’t talk yet and instead just pressed Fennekin against her chest closely. She didn’t know what she’d done or why, but the feeling of the place just reminded her of home too much, she couldn’t really place this emotion and instead remained silent as the tears continued dropping down her face.

“Finny! Finny!” A familiar echo grew louder and louder until the young boy popped around the corner and came after her. When he finally arrived, he looked down and crossed his arms in front of her. Titus was not happy that he was left behind like that at the island. But before he opened his mouth, Titus saw tears rolling down in her eyes.
Instinctively, the Ralts couldn’t help but save her from the depression she was sinking in. He hopped from Titus’ arms and leaped in front of her, crying out to her to ask what was wrong. Somehow, Galahad was going to save her and stop her crying.

Titus himself knelt down in front of her. The heir couldn’t stand Finny rolling tears from her cheeks unless he started joining in with the tears. Galahad cried out to her to calm down. The Pokemon of empathy even tried to clean off the water that was dripping down on her clothes.

No one ever runs away from a restaurant like that. She was crying and shaking just like the knights of old whenever the battlefield was too much for them. Her childhood must have been traumatic. Titus looked back at the direction of where he came from and nodded to himself. No one ever runs away from a restaurant like that. The ace trainer was already putting the pieces together.

“Finny. Why’d you run off like that?” Titus was forceful in his words, but he was concerned.

Finny didn’t know what to say to Titus, she contemplated getting up and running away even further in case he’d come searching for her but knew that she couldn’t do that to him, and it was already too late for that. The footsteps of someone running became louder and louder, and when she slightly turned her head to the left a flying tree came her way, instinctively catching it she realised it was Titus his Ralts. Soon after Titus himself arrived at the scene while Finny couldn’t do much more than looking downwards, noticing the ralts was doing his best to cheer her up she carefully pat his head. Before arriving she heard Titus saying several things but he had now stopped talking for a while.

‘’ I’m sorry’’ she muttered right after she was asked what had happened. Shaking her head she didn’t speak for a while. ‘’ I don’t know, it's not your fault’’ Finny continued. She didn’t know what to say or how to explain things, to be honest she didn’t even want to explain anything. Taking a deep breathe trying to stop herself from shaking she continued staring at the ground, not moving an inch, while muttering ‘’ It’s just a bad memory, I’m sorry’’. There were hundreds things the young girl wanted to say here but nothing else came out of her mouth.

Titus nodded in silence, took a small breath, and contemplated on the next move. The answer pretty much confirmed Titus’ suspicion. He gave a weak smile to Finny, trying to soothe her in any way. At the least Galahad was making things better. When he leaped to Finny to save her, he saw a little knight in her. That was the basis of a strong Pokemon.

The ace trainer looked at Finny with a straight face. He opened his mouth and forced the next question on her but never raised his voice. “Your family ran away. Why?”

Titus his questions were actually hurting, she knew her family didn’t like her but hearing it from someone else made it seem worse for some reason, shaking her head she took a deep breathe, she didn’t like running away but felt like trying to escape this situation. A lot of thoughts passed her mind, should she ask her fennekin to make a smoke screen so she could get away? Maybe that was a thing only working in movies, Titus seemed like a person that wouldn’t give up anyways.

“I Don’t know.”

These three words were all that passed her lips. It wasn’t probably enough to answer all his questions and she knew that it wasn’t enough to answer all the questions asked. It took a lot of courage to even bring this up but the past few weeks had been a rough rollercoaster ride and things were coming out sooner or later.

“I am the younger of two twins, they only wanted one kid’’ Finny exclaimed trying to keep her tears from flowing more and more, she knew that if she wanted to stop this conversation now she needed a strong weapon, she allowed her eyes to quickly scan the area and only by looking up saw a sign that said ‘’ Hot chocolate’’. It was kind of ironic that chocolate make her break but was again an escape for her, she got up still holding the ralts and Fennekin while taking a deep breathe, ‘’ Sorry Titus but I think we deserve some hot chocolate after that’’ The young girl exclaimed,’’ I know It’s not the shop you wanted, but I am kind of nervous to go back now’’ Finny said looking at her feet, hoping Titus didn’t mind.

Titus nodded without any word. He was going to slowly press it further, but only after Finny calmed down after a delicious treat. Then, he offered her a hand, bowed to her and asked with a polite tone. “If you don’t mind, I would like to escort you. Believe it or not, I’m a descendant of knights. If you want, you can carry Galahad.”

Accepting Titus his hand Finny tried to smile and thanked him. ‘’ A knight? ‘’ Finny mumbled slightly in disbelief, ‘’ that is awesome!’’ she said, not realising what it really meant. Instead she was reminded of childhood stories where a knight riding a shiny Rapidash defeated a rampaging Druddigon with only a Doublade by his side. Finny nodded at Titus his offer of carrying the Ralts, whos name after all this time she still couldn’t pronounce. Still feeling a bit uneasy, Finny was ready to have Titus escort her.

Titus pulled her up from the ground and escorted her to the hot chocolate place that she saw across the street. He never let go of her hand, pulling her so that she could follow him while the Pokemon followed behind. The two trainers never spoke during the slow walk. The atmosphere was too heavy and solemn to make any light talk. For Titus, he couldn’t grasp fully on why her family would simply discard her like that. He just kept silent and pretended to simply not care and focus on the chocolate place she wants to go to. Maybe the a choco drink will make Finny talk again.

A little droplet patted on both of their foreheads. Then, more came down and suddenly the two realized that it was going to rain. They didn’t want to be drenched by the rain and ran across the street, dragging her without letting to, and found cover near the entrance of that “hot chocolate” shop. Titus breathed a sigh of relief that he made it before the rain intensified too much. He opened the door so that she and the Fennekin can walk in first.

After Finny went inside, he went inside. But then, he froze in shock and never moved away from the spot. He gulped nervously and scanned the alien and dirty environment around him. People were dressed plainly in ordinary t-shirt and jeans. Titus accidentally made a few eye contacts with people sitting down with coffee in their hands, but they seemed to send daggers back at him. Titus scraped the heel of his boots on the floor, but he saw the disgusting scratches and foot marks that seemed like no one bothered to clean it.

The radio played a very different old tune, which was very different than the noble and classical music musicians play for his family back at Cascadia City. It was too disgusting to look at. How could Finny think this was a good place? He turned around to get outside, but the rain grew into a torrential bombardment. Those unlucky few outside scrambled to find cover.

“Finny… I hate this place.” He spoke to her cold while he crossed his arms.

Finny didn’t understand the problem Titus was having, it was a place that was nationally known for great hot chocolate and apple pie. Finny looked at Titus and shook her head ‘why would we go somewhere else? They have apple pie!, grandmother's apple pie to be precise. Well the recipe is apparently so old that it was made by the grandmother of someones grandmother’s grandmother! Isn’t that awesome!‘’ Finny asked full of enthusiasm not really understanding why anyone could have a problem with a place like this, she prefered a family joint like this to something like a dessert bar for the elite. The portions were also a reason for Finny to go here, you’d get a whole giant pie for the price of 2 macarons at the joint Titus was wanting to go.

Realising Titus his weird acting wasn’t stopping she sighed ‘’ I guess we can just eat out then, I don’t mind. ‘’ she stated as she waved at the cashier and let out a very long and giant ‘’ Hmmmmmm’’ before spinning a whole circle on her feet and pointing at the apple pie ‘’Can I have one apple pie and two hot choc to drink on the go ‘’ She spoke really fast and let out a cheer right after as she succeeded talking to strangers, something she never liked. As the giant box filled with a whole pie was placed on the desk and they prepared some hot choc for the two Finny carefully counted her change and put down 20 Dians, the change she put into the national Skiddo protection fund that a little jar on the counter was asking for.

Looking at Titus she waved him over ‘’Caan you carry the hot choc? I’ll carry the treasure! Let’s go to the park ‘’

“Back to the park?” He raised his eyebrows in shock, happy to hear that they were going to leave this place. “Let’s get out of this dump- I mean… We should head back to the park!” exclaimed Titus followed by a forced laugh. If it meant escaping from this place, then by all means.

Then, he turned his head away from Finny to apparently check the rain. But the two defeats still lingered in his mind. If we get back out, I can force Finny to face her reality. That thought lingered on for a few more seconds, but then Titus found out that he was still in front of the door and Finny was still waiting. The rain intensified and no one was out there to willingly withstand against the downpour. He cursed silently as he realized he never brought an umbrella.

“Do you have an umbrella?”

‘’ A umbrella? Oh hey yep it's raining. I might have one, buuut if it’s raining why don’t we sit inside, it’s not like they will eat you. ‘’ Finny answered unsure why Titus was being such a baby about not wanting to sit at the bakery. ‘’So what is the plan? ‘’ Finny asked while wondering what was their next plan’’

Finny was just wondering what they were going to do now, she didn’t really care for either of it but prefered just sitting inside and warm, though maybe her Pokemon shouldn't all be able to share the pie right there but hey she couldn’t do anything about that, maybe just fae and slushy be okay.

“I… uhh… I don’t know…?” He forced a smile once again. But Titus stared outside, and it looked like the rain was dropping an entire ocean to the streets.

“Umm… we could stay here?” He whispered the idea to Finny, but it was the worst idea he could think of. At the moment, the rain seemed better than the bakery. However, Finny had better and logical reasons than whatever Titus could come up with.

Finny shook her head and smiled ‘’I’ll protect you ‘’ Flexing her arms and smiling a tiny bit ‘’ So wanna sit there? ‘’ she pointed at a nice couch in the corner which looked quite clean and had enough room to sit with her Pokemon and Ti ‘’ Slushy! Apple pie time!!’’ The young fox trainer hold out her with sprinkles decorated pokeball and caught the white form that hopped out of the Pokeball. The white six tailed fox rubbed her head against Finny carefully licking her chin and let out a tiny howl of happiness. While smiling Finny grabbed her other Pokeball and let out Fae the fennekin who managed to climb on top of Finny her head right after getting out. ‘’Look it’s a foxhat. ‘’ Finny said being a lil silly, which made Titus giggle.

He and his Pokemon sat down on the opposite side. “Well… you look so happy,” complemented Titus. Suddenly, the Piplup next to Titus shuttered, but he didn’t know why. When Imperator looked up, he saw Titus’ eyes narrowing. Something bad was going to happen and Titus was going to do it. “But why run away from your family? Without them, you’re not going to live long.”

To Titus, he was right. As far as he knew, he was strong thanks to his family.

The young girl shook her head ‘’ let’s not talk about them ‘’ she said in a very rushed manner hoping to avoid this topic. The young fox trainer was surprised that Titus still hadn’t realised it is a very rough subject for her. Fae wasn’t very pleased with him making Finny uncomfortable, thus started growling towards the rich boy. ‘’ It’s okay Fae, we will have some pie and be on our way ‘’ Finny stated while forcing a smile. She looked at the box and opened it carefully, like it was a very delicate treasure, as the box opened the fresh baked pie shone like a jewel, that magically conjured a smile on her face and sprinkles in her eyes. She happily took a big slice out of the box handing some of the crumbs to her foxy friends, who happily nommed it out of her hand. ‘’You should have a slice too’’ Finny said aiming at the boy sitting infront of her.

“Sure.” The young heir took his portion of the sweets Finny bought for him and shared it with both of his Pokemon. It was what Finny did and so Titus thought he should do it too. However, he wasn’t feeling as happy as Finny seemed to be. He looked at Finny as if she committed a crime. Then out of the blue, he took out a fork and pointed it at her.

“I already figured you out.”

‘’Figured me out?’’ the young girl mumbled out as she stared in front of her, she was very confused and kind of scared of what he was going to say next.

“Well I’ll start with your training. It’s nice and all to have a relationship. But how is it going to help you in the long run,” continued Titus, ignoring the threatening growl coming from her Pokemon.

Finny shook her head in both disbelief and disappointment, that instead of Titus stopping the conversation and changing subject he made it sound like she was the one that had been in the wrong. Taking a deep breathe, trying to control herself she looked at the floor, vainly trying to stop the tears from flowing. The damaged girl wanted to run, she wanted to disappear. Once again she had been proven people were mean, rude and judgemental. She wasn't sure what to say and decided to remain silent, sadly even the pie stopped to taste as nice as it should. It was like the young girl had entered a grey world where happiness didn’t exist, her only solace was carefully holding her foxes who hopefully weren’t going to leave her alone.

He leaned closer to Finny and interrogated her. “Hugging isn’t going to help you survive any longer. Soon, you’ll be caught.” And there, he zeroed in on her. A bakery patron gulped when he saw Titus leaning closer to her like a predator. Why would he do that to a sweet girl?


Finny left her chair as she felt really intimidated by the boy in front of her, she wanted to cry, actually she was crying, how could someone be so mean. She, got on her knee in front of the cute Ralts, to give him a final rub over his wobbly little head ‘’ Take care of yourself little one, I’d kidnap you but that would get me into giant trouble, I am sorry, you are awesome’’ she said looking at her feet while still contemplating on saving the ralts from the rude jerk that was called titus. ‘’My Pokemon love me, I love them, Do you love your Pokemon an do they love you?’’ Finny asked as she failed to control the tears, which were breaking up her words and making it very hard for anyone to decipher what she was saying. ‘’ No, they won’t catch me, I have to take care of my friends, I have to be happy’’ she continued as she felt a very proud feeling surging to her body as she had never stood up for herself like that.

“Hah! See? That’s why I’m better than you!” He stood up and slammed his hands on the table. “If being happy is all you want, then that’s a very weak answer. You’re family’s going to catch you. You’re playing a hide and seek game that you’ll ultimately lose. Happiness isn’t going to help you anywhere.” That provocative answer shocked Imperator. Knowing how hard-headed his trainer was, he punched his legs to force him to sit down. But Titus continued to stand, just like how his family would. Meanwhile, Galahad whimpered once again. He knew what was going to happen next.

The slam on the table brought back old memories of when they’d hit her, Finny tried to block it out but failed. Hanging her head down in defeat she looked around her and sighed ‘’Okay ‘’. Nothing else came out, she was unable to say anything else, she was filled with incredible sadness that she felt through her whole body, she was not going to argue anymore, she needed to get out of here.

“That proves that I’m ultimately right! And that your thing with hugs and loving your Pokemon doesn’t mean anything!” He was going to get his little victory against her. The scion of the Hasturs was going to prove to her that he was always better. Those two losses stung before, but this time he was going claim something back. Even if it meant making her cry.

‘’Okay that’s it! I am leaving Ti, YOU MEANIE!, you don’t understand anything, w-why are you such a meanie, you meanie!’’ Finny blurted out as she started to break down. Meanwhile Fae was growling and fuming, about to set the whole shop on fire, Slushy tried to calm the Fennekin by rubbing her head against Fae’s while blowing slightly cold air at the fire fox who managed to calm down just a little. ‘’ It’s okay Fae’’ The flustered young girl mumbled while trying to control sniffing. ‘’ Thank you for the pie ma’am it was amazing’’ Finny exclaimed to the stunned woman behind the counter as she tried to not look rude and ungrateful, Leaving the shop owner to be very confused and worried, but unsure on what to do.

Picking up her bag, she removed slushy’s pokeball from it, returning the little fox back to it. ‘’ I am sorry slush, we will cuddle soon’’, she continued by putting the box filled with pie in her bagpack which barely fit, but she felt bad for leaving it behind, especially because Titus didn’t deserve another crumble. While Trying to control herself she lifted up Fae holding her tight.

‘’ I don’t want you to follow me Ti, you were rude and don’t understand the situation, I was betrayed! not my family. I am going to leave you now if you follow me I’ll have Fae use ember on you. I don’t want to see you again, please leave me alone.’’ Finny said as tears were flowing over her cheeks, it wasn’t as if she was super close to ti, but she thought he was okay yet decided to hurt her. ‘’ Oh, take care of your Pokemon well, they are nice little creatures ‘’ She said as she turned around and left. She should have done this earlier, but it wasn’t smart to stand out in her current situation.
