Blizzard turned around. In the grass was the cute >>little curl that told of a Jigglypuff. As Blizzard turned to look, the Jigglypuff's ears pricked up, alert. "Jiggly?" "Persian..." Blizzard whispered, dropping low to the ground, and stalking towards the balloon-like Pokémon. "You seem a bit disoriented... purr... Could it be, that you are lost in these woods, away from your home?" "Jiggly puff puff..." It nodded, sadly. "Siannn.... Not to worry, though. I'll help you find your way home." Blizzard licked her lips. The Jigglypuff stared deep into her dark blue eyes, as if in a trance. Suddenly, the Persian was dangerously close... "PUFF!" Jigglypuff cried, inflating itself to twice its normal size. "Jigglypuff puff!!!!" "Persian?" "PUFFFFF!!!!" Jigglypff raised an open palm, and brought it down across Blizzards face. Then again. And again. And again, and again, and again. "PUFFPUFFPUFFPUFFPUFFPUFFPUFFPUFFPUFFPUFFPUFFPUFFPUFFPUFFPUFFFFFFFF!!!!!!!!!" Blizzard fell over backwards, as the Jigglypuff snorted, and hopped off into the underbrush. "Hmm..." White Blade mused, staring after the Jigglypuff, "That didn't go especially well, now did it? Say, Blizzard, what do you plan on doing with the Jigglypuff, once you capture it?" Blizzard was busily brushing down her fur, trying her best to appear nonchalant. "Purr..." she mumbled, "I suppose I'll chase it around, until it pops...." "Lofty goals..." The Clefairy sighed. Blizzard eyed her companion carefully. "Speaking of goals... what's this about you wanting a Moon Stone?" TBC... -Beth "Ii kanji!" http://members.aol.com/bandraptor
