Hours later, Splash is still wandering around the now empty scene where the
concert took place, searching desperatly for Murasaki. After the body guards
had took him aside, they had made two things very clear. Neither of them was
Murasaki, as was obvious by their total lack of psysical attraction to him, and
that he was not to go near the entrance while they were there.
And so, Splash had made his way back to where both Murasaki's had been waiting
for him, only to find out that neither was there now. Realizing this, he began
to search the grounds for her. Either of her. But she wasn't in the line, as
every Murasaki he saw had no idea who he was. Figuring that she must have made
it inside, as she had wanted to in the first place, he waited until after the
concert had been over. He then went through the same process with the entire
line of people exiting the concert. To no avail.
Murasaki was gone. How could she have been gone? Just this very day, she had
told him that she would be staying with him forever. She wouldn't be going
anywhere. Why would she have lied?
"She wouldn't have," Splash said aloud to himself as he paced back and forth.
"No!" Splash heard as his foot snagged under a treebranch and send his body
rushing towards the ground.
"I didn't think so," Splash smiled, then went white as he realized something.
"Who said that?" Looking around, Splash noticed that what he had tripped over
had not been a treebranch. In fact, there were no trees nearby.
In fact, what he had stepped on had been a living being. It blinked it's one
eye at him and stared.
"What ARE you?" Splash asked the one-eyed creature as he focused all his
attention on this one being. "Are you the letter 'M'?"
The creature did in fact look like the letter 'M'. In fact, with it's one eye
closed, it could be passed off for a metal replica of the member of the
alphabet. But it was, in fact, not metal. Answering Splash's question, it
responded the only way it could.
"An 'own'?" Splash wondered aloud, stroking his stubble. "What is an 'own'?"
"UNOWN!" the shiny creature repeated angrily. How stupid was this human he had
"Oh, an 'Annon'!" Splash cried, slapping his forehead in embarrasment. "Okay
Annon, I've decided! I'm gonna!" With that, he reached into his pocket and
quickly threw an empty Pokeball at the pokemon. Suprised, the Pokemon was
sucked inside, but escaped moments later.
"Darn. You'd be a perfect gift for Murasaki. I guess I'll have to weaken you
first. Go, Murasako!" Throwing the only Pokemon he owned into battle, he
expected the battle to go pretty quickly, with Murasako victorious. He was
"Krabby!" Murasako cried as the red beam of energy took her form and promptly
started to attack Splash.
"Ow!" Splash cried as he pried her pincers off of his leg. "Don't attack me,
"Krab?" Murasako sweatdropped and looked at the man who had stolen her from her
owner. What was an 'Annon'?
"This!" Splash shouted, irritated and pointing to the letter Em. "Attack this
"Krab," Murasako replied, not wanting to help Splash. Lunging at her target,
"Damn it!" Splash cried, throwing the pokemon down to the ground. Picking up
Em, he was more than prepared when Murasako attacked him again.
With strategic split-second planning, Splash was able to slip the oblivious Em
between the Krabby and himself, safely ensuring that the Pokemon would be
Once the Krabby had injured the Unown, Splash once again used an empty Pokeball
on the Pokemon, although this time instead of throwing it, he simply pressed it
against the shiny Unown and watched at it vanished from his grip and was sucked
inside the ball.
Holding his breath, Splash waited, and waited. It seemed that Em wasn't going
to be coming out of the ball.
"Thanks Murasako," Splash smiled as he recalled her into her Pokeball. In the
moments before being sucked back into the ball, Murasako lunged at Splash, her
attack falling just inches short of its mark before she was turned into a ball
Holding both Pokeballs in his hands, Splash's expression turned grim. "What
have I been doing? I should have been searching for Murasaki! Foul play must
have befallen her. She wouldn't have left me otherwise. Even Annon agreed with
me on that!"
Behind him, Splash didn't notice a small circle, high in the sky, of Fog begin
to appear. It had been waiting for a while. Waiting for that Ditto to leave so
he could play with the human again.
At first, playing with the human had been fun. Watching what it did to him had
been fun. But it had grown boring. So it was time to play with the human again.
Time to be entertained.
Had someone been staring at the up close, they would have seen the faintest
impression of a smile begin to form.
