Taron walked among the trees that had been planted in the garden
of the gym. Procyon walked next to him, with Bulletwing not far behind.
"Hmm, okay Taron, says here that my battle with Erika will be in one
hour with yours shortly thereafter." Taron breathed deeply taking in the
aroma of flowers nearby.
"Fine by me." He said Procyon nodded to him.
"Right. Well I'm going to go get my pokemon ready, see you in an
hour Taron. Come on Bulletwing." With that he led his three headed bird
Taron sat down in the shade of a nearby tree planning out his
battle strategy. "Hmm, well Talon is an obvious choice, but he would be
the only pokemon that has an advantage to grass type pokemon." Suddenly
he had an idea. The more he thought about this idea, the more he
thought it would work, after awhile, this idea turned into a strategy
Taron reclined against the tree behind him, satisfied of the
strategy he had come up with. It was a shame he didn't have a fire
pokemon though, then this battle would be a breeze.
He heard the sound of footsteps approaching and turned his head
towards the sound. Which was pointless, since Taron is blind and
wouldn't be able to see anything anyway, but some instincts die hard.
"Hello?" He said. Waiting to hear a reply. It might just be Suik
or Procyon trying to sneak up on him. As a joke.
"Yah! Oh jeez, don't do that!" Said a young woman, by the sound
of her voice Taron judged her to be somewhere around his own age. She
was probably one of the gym trainers here.
"I'm sorry, I didn't mean to surprise you." Taron said shrugging
his shoulders The girl frowned and shook her head at him, causing a
lock of her light brown hair to fall over her emerald colored eyes, she
quickly brushed it away.
"What are you doing here anyway?" She said a mild hint of
annoyance in her voice. "This gym is for women only." He eyes narrowed
suspiciously, "Are you some kind of Peeping Tom?" Taron laughed.
"No, I'm not, even if I wanted to be I couldn't, I can't see."
He stated bluntly. The girl gasped, then coughed nervously.
"I'm sorry." She said after a moment or two of silence. Taron
grinned good naturedly at her.
"Don't be, I'm not. I was born this way and I'm used to it." He
then fixed her with a curious stare. "What's your name?" He asked.
"Why do you want to know that?"
"I dunno, I just have this feeling that some guy named Saint is
getting tired of describing you as The Girl."
"What kind of a name is Saint? And while we're at it what are
you talking about?"
"The answer to both questions is, I don't know" She fixed him
with that suspicious look again.
"Your weird, and my name is Amanda."
Amanda grinned. "Hey, did you know that if you spell your name
backwards it spells 'No rat?'"
Taron blinked at her a few times. "And you say I'M the weird
"Real funny." She said, grinning despite herself.
"Hey, how come you haven't told me why you're out here. I told
you why I was out here."
"No you haven't."
Taron paused to consider. "You know what? You're right I
haven't. Well I'm just waiting for my turn to battle Erika. And you?"
"I'm here to check on the Oddish garden I planted earler this
week. Hmm Nothing yet though." She sat down on the grass next to him.
"So, you're going to battle Erika huh?" She reached into her pocket and
withdrew a small spray bottle, "Here this might help." She handed the
bottle to Taron.
"What is it?" He asked.
"It's a Paralyze Heal, I made it myself."
"You know ow to make these?" Taron said staring at Amanda with a
newfound respect. She grinned and sat up proudly.
"Of course, I have the recipe memorized," She closed her eyes.
"Three teaspoons of parasect's pollen, One cup of Dandelion leaves,
three cups of Gloom sap, one tablespoon of powdered acorns, seven and
one half cups of water, put it into a pot and let simmer for seven
"There's got to be more to it than that." He said. She blushed.
"Well yeah, but that's all I can remember" Taron facefaulted.
Then over the loudspeaker.. "Will the Pokemon Trainer, Procyon please
report to gym floor for his scheduled match with Erika." The message
repeated itself. Taron stood up to leave.
"Where are you going?" Amanda said grabbing his arm.
"Procyon's my friend and I'm going to watch him battle. Maybe I
can study Erika while I'm there, you know, learn her strengths and
weaknesses and stuff."
"I'll come with you I always like watching Mistress Erika
Amanda led the way to the Gym Floor.
Ehh, not much happened but I have writer's block so sue me
