Subject: [PW!] The Ship Moved! It's a Miracle!
Her eyes closed and her hands clamped together, Maria considered where on board
to start searching for the Rocket she could trust with the task of buying her
stolen Pokeballs, no questions asked. Taking a deep breath, she rose to her
feet. It was time for a good look around. Just then, she heard hard footsteps
coming towards her, and fast.
Maria's brow creased and she whirled about, prepared to throw Estro overboard.
"You don't know when to-" She screeched to a stop as she suddenly faced Mimic,
who brought himself to an unsteady stop. "Mimic!" Her eyes widened joyfully,
then she squealed and glomped him.
"Erk!" Mimic felt himself suddenly squeese inward like a piece of silly putty,
before he was able to recover and stablize his form. He put his arms around
her. "Mimic glad see Maria, too. But no can stay on spot, trouble come."
Maria blinked. "Trouble? What kind of trouble?"
"Trouble like me." A figure in dark clothes turned the corner, followed by
two others dressed in similar uniforms. "Global Police. This is going to be
Team Rocket's last cruise and sinking of the SS Anne, we intend to make sure of
Mimic blinked this time. "Global Police?" He narrowed his eyes and scanned
the area. "Look like thugs hold back at moment...but which better, thugs or
Maria grit her teeth. "Careful Mimic...these guys aren't Team Rocket....and
they certainly aren't a bunch of screw ups like ATR. They mean business."
"Indeed." The GP officer in charge held his hand out. "Just give us the
children and come along quietly. For their sakes, let's do this the easy way,
Maria and Mimic exchanged an uneasy look. Mimic could feel the Rocket thugs
lurking just nearby...to suddenly teleport now could be the equivalent of
jumping from the frying pan into the fire. He felt Maria's arm reaching behind
him to where the twins were strapped. "Wait..."
Just as Maria slid the pack from his shoulders, the entire boat shuddered
violently. The unexpected movement of the ship sent them sprawling across the
deck. She gave a shocked cry as Seth and Hope went sailing into the air....and
right into the arms of one of the officers.
Then the ship lurched again, pulling out to sea at last. Pulling herself up to
her knees, she found the officers were still thrown about, but there was no
sign of the twins. Frantically, she looked around, finding Mimic gone as well.
"Mimic! Where are you!?"
Maria sweatdropped and looked down. She got to her feet, and ripped the
flattened Mimic from the deck. He immediately popped back out to a full three
Maria grabbed his arm. "Mimic, the twins, did you see where the twins went?"
He had no time to reply, as...
"Psy yie yie..."
