Feeling hot, he tore the coverings away from himself. He was still in the bedroom, but he saw no sign of anyone else. Sitting up on the side of the bed, he noticed a dull ache behind his eyes wouldn't go away. Finally, he stood up, walking stiffly. Moving towards the curtains, he looked out to see the sun setting in the sky. His emerald eyes blinked in surprise. "Seth awake! Feeling okay?" "Yeah....just this headache. Did I sleep all day?" Seth looked around at the sound of Mimic's voice. As the dresser in the corner grew into a dark shape resembling himself, he sat back on the windowsil. "Seth had some sort of bad nightmare. Mimic feel psychic presence....but in current company, hard to tell really." "Hmm." Seth rubbed between his eyes. "Nightmare......never had one like that before. It felt real." Mimic leaned against the wall with his hands in his pockets. "Maybe Doppler? But Mimic don't feel Doppler.....what was the dream about?" After Seth had explained to the best of his ability, Mimic was frowning up at the ceiling. He appeared to be lost in thought. After a minute or so, Seth reached out slowly and tapped Mimic on the shoulder. Mimic focused again and looked over at Seth. "What do Seth think nightmare was?" He had an intent look on his face. Seth almost shrunk away under his stare. "Well.....I don't know. But I don't know if we should keep going on to Sabrina's gym. Maybe there's another way to help Aerie." "Perhaps. But would we find out in time? Aerie grow worse as time pass." "I know.....but maybe it'd be worth the risk." Seth looked out the window. "Where is Aerie, anyway? And Slasher?" Mimic nodded towards the window. "Slasher still outside. Aerie go see him a few minutes ago." "Oh." Seth drew the back of his arm across his forehead. "Boy, it's hot." "Yes," Mimic nodded. "Since Seth better, Mimic think it much more comfortable that we travel by night." "Yeah, we, WHOA!" Taking him by surprise, a big mischievious grin spread across Mimic's face as he pushed him out the window. "AAAAHH!!!" Seth hit the ground hard, sending a puff of dust and grass into the air around him. Arms and legs spread, Seth opened his eyes to an even worse headache, and the sight of a Butterfree floating down towards him. "Freeee? Whoops....Mimic sorry, Mimic thought Seth's reflexes faster than that," He hovered around him sweatdropping. "Heh heh heh..." Seth bared his teeth in a wild grin and grabbed Mimic by the wings, flinging him up and over his head. Right behind him was a small pond on the inn property. Mimic went splashing in, wings flailing around. Groaning, Seth rolled onto his stomach and went crawling towards the lake. "W-Who's slow now?" Seth chuckled. He got a Bubble in the face as a response. Drenched, he blinked at Mimic now floating in the pond as a Poliwhirl. "Seth!" Squeezing the water from his hair, Seth turned to see Aerie running over in the distance. He could see Slasher behind her in the trees. A shudder went through him as he was reminded of his nightmare. "Mimic," He looked into the water. "Don't tell her what I told you....." "Mimic won't. But what to do now?" "I don't know. But I'm not taking her to Sabrina." Aerie tackled Seth into the water before Mimic could respond. The Ditto floated away a bit. Momentarily, he thought he saw a strange light hovering nearby. But it vanished as he turned to look.
