The confused trainers collected at a clearing in the woods where the sun was
allowed to hit the ground. The events of the past minute were still knocking
on Simon's mind to understand what had happened. It seemed out of no where,
Trent Retwin materialized and dematerialized a second later. Simon didn't
think he was going crazy, for the others had confirmed the same image, and when
Sirius's Cubone went to investigate, it was flung backwards quite oddly.
"I can't be going crazy....." Simon said. "..........the bastard can't
already be here...."
"I remember those guys..." said Raven, "They were on the SS Anne with me...
That guy! That guy was the James you had been talking about!"
As the name registered in the expanse of Simon's paperbag, it initiated a
thought process that would be deemed ungood by any judgement day trial.
"......James....." Simon whispered under his breath, squinted his eyes and
clenched his fists until his veins almost popped. "James is here..."
Underneath the bag, Simon's smile grew a little evil, as the words revenge was
somehow made apparent in him. Simon's demeanor wasn't as pleasant as it was
before, his posture grew more rigid and hard, as he tensed all over.
Sirius was kneeling on the ground, examining a mortally wounded and rare silver
butterfree who had almost fainted. He pulled out a potion, and applied it to
the Pokemon, "That other guy.... he's my father's arch rival." Sirius said.
Simon turned to the dragon trainer and looked very serious, "Sirius...... that
other guy...... is here to kill you."
From the woods ran the other two trainers, a very out of breath Gohan was
trying to say something. He finally caught himself, and said, "Derrick.....
Derrick is gone! We can't find him!"
"There's something really screwy going on..." Fox said. The group examined
the surrounding woods, hoping that no raving psycho pokemon were on the
Simon couldn't take the silence, his enemies were messing with his mind.
The shout startled the other trainers, and simultaneously each man's heart
began to pick up speed. Simon's was the fastest, he motioned for his Pokemon
to come to his side to prepare for the unexpected.
Out of nowhere, and heard from everywhere a laughing echoed. "Gen gah gah gah!
"Aww damn.... it's a Gengar." Dern said. The laugh grew louder, and a lot
more lunatic, one by one the trainers unleashed their Pokemon. Sirius moved
the silver butterfree out of harms way, and sent out his own cubone again.
"GEN GAH GEN GAH GEN GAH!" The laugh continued, trying to spook the trainers.
Simon waited, for anything to happen, but it just kept going.
Until......... "Shut the hell up!" Yelled a familiar voice.
"Awwwwww DAMMIT!" Trent Retwin appeared out of know where, he seemed his usual
pissed off self. "Awww good. Two birds with one stone."
Simon who revealed no emotion through his paperbag yelled back, "Go away Trent,
the six of us vs you.........you wouldn't stand a chance."
"Oh yeah?" Another person appeared, wearing a Rocket uniform and a smirk on
his face. Simon knew that smile, belonging to no other than James. "Hello
Simon. You're looking rather well."
"No thanks to you...." Under his mask, Simon smiled. He awaited this moment
for a long time, needing to ease his vengeful soul, by taking James's life.
The others remained quiet, Sirius's eyes fixated on Retwin to make sure he
wouldn't try anything.
"Six on two! Ha!" Raven shouted, beckoning for the other two to come out in
"No.... James is mine." Simon said, "I need to settle something." The evil
that revenge brought out in Simon disturbed Gohan and Fox, but they were
prepared to defend themselves. No way were they losing their Pokemon to any
"Oh crap…" Dern said. "Hey Simon…. You invite more guests to join the
Simon kept one eye on James and turned around…….clear across on the other side
was another Rocket. She was wearing the typical Rocket Uniform, with a
trenchcoat. On her shoulder, she sported the latest in pokemon weaponry, a
Prime Grade A Wiggly Launcher, and aimed it directly toward the non Rockets.
"Taking Pokemon straight from your pockets, With the power of the stars, its
Maria Rocket!" She said coolly.
"What the," Fox laughed hoping to show disrespect.
Beside her, was another figure, to Simon, it appeared to be her Pokemon, but it
started laughing all of a sudden. "Fwahahahahaha!"
Simon knew that laugh from the first time, none other than Car'tos. But this
Car'tos, was a helluva different than before. He was encased in some sort of
respirator, and his skin was all blue. Not only that, he brandished some
"From the Skys to the Ground, Car'tos takes your Pokémon, and makes them
"Awwww crap…" Simon said as he, Raven and Sirius kept an eye on Trent and
James, while Gohan, Fox, and Dern kept an eye on the other rockets.
Maria, climbed on a nearby bolder, getting a better aim. "Anybody who messes
with one Rocket, messes with us all."
"Meowth! That's right!" Shouted a meowth.
"What the hell is this!" Gohan shouted, "You can't have our Pokemon! Not
without a fight!"
"Then a fight it shall be!" Her next motion, was the contraction of her
finger, as it pulled back the trigger of her launcher.
Simon didn't even have to look, he felt James smile behind him as he and the
other trainers gazed into the barrel of the launcher.
(I hope I didn't mischaracter anybody! And this would be the perfect time for
Dreadite and Owens to drop by!)
"Huzzah!" said Simyn Locke, "You don't have to like me, I just tell it how it
is, and you tell it how it might be."
