"Way ahead of ya!" Yolei called out as she dove down the Onix's tunnel.
"Hey! Wait up!" said Lynkeru as she dove in after her.
Yuki ran up to the hole and stopped. She put an ear to the wall and
listened for a while, paying special attention to the Onix's seismic
"This way," she said, running into a nearby tunnel.
Drake and Memuyo glanced at the Onix hole, glanced at the tunnel Yuki ran
down, then at each other. They shrugged and went after Yuki.
Lynkeru and Yolei slid down the Onix hole and tumbled out into another
chamber of the cave. It was like any other part of the cave with rock
surfaces and barely enough light to see anything.
"Where is it?" Yolei asked as she scanned the cave. There wasn't much to
see other than the Zubats clinging to the ceiling and the near-infinite
number of small insects waiting on the floor to swarm over any unfortunate
Zubat that falls down and can't fly away before being eaten alive my
millions of carnivorous bugs. Why such insects were on the floor instead of
the ceiling where there was a veritable buffet is anyone's guess. Of
course, if the bugs were on the ceiling then the Zubats would be on the
floor which would make it a tad difficult to walk around.
Lynkeru stood, staring at one of the walls. Yolei dusted some of the bugs
off her then looked at the wall out of curiousity. The wall didn't seem to
be doing anything particularly interesting, so she turned her attention to
Lynkeru who drew her swords and took a defensive stance.
"Whats..?" Yolei asked just an instant before the aforementioned wall was
shattered by an incoming Onix, causing a good number of Zubats to fly about
in disarray. It growled loudly, shook its head, and snorted in an attempt
to dislodge Indi the Fairy from its left nostril.
Lynkeru wasted almost no time in lunging at the rock snake, spinning so to
slash with both swords in one motion. The Onix bellowed in pain, then
attempted to ram its face into her. This did it little good, as Lynkeru
barely dodged the Onix wound up with bugs and rocks up its nose.
"Steel and water attacks do a lot of damage to Onixes," Yolei said to
herself as she reached for an empty PokeBall. "I better stick to catching
it if I want it to remain conscious. PokeBall, Gooooooooo!"
Yolei flung a PokeBall at the Onix. Unfortunately, by this point the Onix's
nose felt so tickly it sneezed in Yolei's direction. A mucus-covered ball
splattered into her face and oozed off as Indi hung from the Onix's face by
a thread of snot.
"This is SO gross," Indi complained.
"All right, let's try this again," Yolei said with a sour expression. She
took out another PokeBall and hurled it with as much strength as she could
muster. A shaking ball landed on the ground with an Onix inside and Indi on
top of it. Yolei went over to pick it up.
"All that's left now is to name it," she said. "How about..."
The ball burst open, sending Indy flying into the air and Yolei tumbling to
the floor. The Onix rematerialized and the dazed fairy landed on it's head.
It took off, taking Indi along for the ride.
"Hey! Come back here!" Lynkeru called out as she chased after them.
"Yolei! Come on!"
"Hold on a sec," Yolei said. She pulled a towel out of her back pack to
wipe the mucus off her face. "Stupid Onix boogers..."
