Subject: [PW!] Alyssa's cure!... well, sort of...

Previously: In the post "Bill-sensei and a new companion", Alyssa joined up
with Angel and arrived at Bill's lighthouse, seeking her cure. In this post,
she gets it... but there's another problem...
The sound of Alyssa's hooves hitting the floor echoed through the halls
as Bill led the two girls to his lab, talking about all the new headway he'd
made in Pokemon research, and showing off all the new Pokemon he'd acquired.
Alyssa would normally have found it fascinating, but she was a little
impatient at the moment.
"NYTA PO!" she finally exploded as Bill was talking about the stat gain
research (ooc: I had nothing else to put!) he'd made, cutting him off in
midsentence. Her flames actually burned hotter. The young scientist jumped
and rubbed the back of his head, grinning apologetically.
"Sorry about that," he said before gesturing to a large bit of apparatus.
Alyssa eyed it skeptically - it looked like a big metal chamber connected to
a bunch of pipes, dials, buttons, and little flashing lights.
"Pony ponyta ta?" (This is gonna cure me?)
Bill nodded, smiling. "It might look a little suspicious, but there's
nothing to fear, trust me!" He opened the door to the machine. "Go on in!"
Alyssa cautiously entered the monstrosity, hoping to high heaven that Bill
knew VERY well what he was doing. The door shut behind her. She took a deep
breath and let it out, emitting a little flit of flame.
Outside, Bill was turning dials and pushing buttons, putting the machine
through its pace. Truth to tell, he was pretty nervous. There'd been no way
to test this first, so he was basically working on theory. Finally, he hit
the last button and exhaled, stepping back to watch the machine anxiously.
Mace, looking worried, bounced up to the machine and put his hand on it,
almost reassuringly. "Wigglyyy," he said quietly, looking mournfully up at
the huge door. Angel picked the little pink Pokemon up, hugging him
"This *is* going to work, right?" she asked the green-haired researcher.
"Well..." Bill hesitated. "In theory, it *should* work. But there's always
the chance we could run into a few snags..."
"Wigglytuff," Mace doomed.
About ten minutes later...
The chamber door opened. Mace's ears stood straight up as he watched the
door alertly. Bill and Angel also watched as the smoke cleared and Alyssa,
human, came out of the chamber, coughing.
Alyssa, human. And male.
He looked up at Angel, Bill, and Mace, who had the weirdest looks on their
faces. He pikued. "What's wrong--hey, what happened to my voice?"
"Ahhhh, nothing!" Bill assured hurriedly, sweatdropping. "Nothing at all!"
He laughed nervously.
Alyssa got a 'don't give me that' expression on his face. "I want a mirror."
Mace bounced out of Angel's arms and retreived a small hand mirror, handing
it to his trainer. Alyssa looked at his reflection in the mirror, and his
eyes went wide.
A very loud scream could be heard from Bill's lighthouse.
Alyssa had wanted to beat a hasty retreat from Cerulean - after all, what if
somebody he knew SAW him like this?? However, Angel wanted to get a
Cascadebadge, so Alyssa decided, for reasons even he couldn't fathom, to
stick around. As he sat outside the gym, flipping through James' info, he
noticed a purple-haired girl in the distance. Curious, he went over to
OOC: Ooookay. Karana, you can get your Cascadebadge from here, and Dree,
this'd be a perfect time to have Aislynn interact with Alyssa ;)
