Are Smeargles common around here?" "Not that I know of. In fact, they only come at Ruins of Alph." "Huh. Well here's one now!" Suddenly Vixxen gasped behind them. "You're that bad Smeargle that pushed Jimmy into the well! You bad bad pokemon!" She stalked forward and thwapped it on the head. It looked at her, confused as to what it must've done to deserve that, then used it's tail to paint a smile on her face. She touched the goo it used as paint and grimaced. "Oh that's just disgusting. He's all yours, Jason." She padded back to her spot and started to scrub off the goo. "Oh and don't think I'm letting you off easy!" she shouted at the supposed bad Smeargle. "Uh...right. Remind me to call the creators of Laddy, kay?" Jason mentioned to Amber. "Right. Now battle!" (I'm going to let Marco handle this.) ----------------------- Jeff griped at his unconscious brother in the tree. "Aw come ON, Bob! I always get stuck with the ice types!" "...zzzzzzzz..." "But Bob!!" "...zzzzzzzz..." "Hey! Why don't I just go hack into your computer and destroy the hard drive!" "You do and you die. Feed the ice types." "So you ARE awake!!!" "...zzzzzzzz..." "Aw man! Damn it." "Don't use that language. Make sure you save some food for Amber." "What?!" "...zzzzzzzz..." And so it went between the brothers. It was finally with a hefty guilt trip added with a special promise that Jeff went to feed the icy pokemon. Suddenly Bob jerked out of his sleep and rubbed his eyes. "Strange dream. I ought to go feed the ice pokemon now..." ----------------------- "Country bumpkins. We could take a lot of Pokemon right now. They're all so tame!" "Yeah. I see. Well why don't you go grab that 'tame' Nidoking while I settle for this nice Pidgey?" "As if. We aren't going to go the Nido pin. We're going to go to THAT one!" By a terrible error on their part, she pointed to the ice center. They carefully made their way around until they reached the huge freezer building. Ivory tried to thrust the window in, but found she couldn't. (AAAHH! I forgot what pokemon they had! O.O Well the fire just died apparently.) "Go! Konchan!" A vulpix streamed out of her Pokeball and sat on her lap. "Vul?" it asked roughly. "Ember that window. Now." Konchan lifted her head and let rip a torrent of fire. The ice around the rim melted and it gave way. She patted Konchan over the head. "Good girl. Return." She let her Pokemon back into the Pokeball and stepped into the freezer. The floor was slick with permafrost and as she touched ground, she lost her balance. With a cry of surprise, she fell, sliding right to Bob's feet. "Today is not my day," she said, dismayed. Jack tumbled right next to her. They both looked up into the angry blue-turning-green eyes of Bob who was obviously not happy. TBC Waaai! You're in college? That makes (counts) four college friends I have. Man, I must be the youngest one here! >_<()
