PokeWars! Searing mists.
'Saffron city during sunset has a wonderful yellow glow'. Or so the sign
said on the ledge where Dreadite sat, watching the mist below flit
through the trees outside the city, the lights giving everything a dull
glow as dusk set in.
Dreadite watched the scene in quiet refection, as the sun slowly dipped
away. Hours drifted away as the rocket just sat there. Occasionally a
passer-by would stop to see if he was still alive, and then move on.
Slowly the mist grew thicker, and the stars above faded away. Hours flew
Dreadite opened his eyes and looked behind him at the mention of the
name. A trainer sat down beside him, looking like she had been awake for
days. The trainer panted for a couple seconds, caught her breath, and
turned to Dreadite.
"Ever seen Mewtwo, man?"
"Once." Dreadite paused a second. "Why do you ask?"
"I'm out to catch him," the trainer replied, fire in her eyes. "I need

towing structure, visible still over the canopy of mist. A trail of fire
zipped by, leaving embers in the air as it passed, flying at a rapid pace
for Victory Road. Dreadite paused, watching the bird Pokemon fly into
the distance. His Pidgey eyes shimmered as he watched the other bird
Dreadite landed on Silph HQ after no more firey trails flew past the
night sky. He looked around, and waved his hand twice to the monitor. A
helicopter fitted to the building, the gusts created as it landed blowing
the random dust from the building. Dreadite stepped aboard. He sat in
the back, and the pilot looked in. "Sir, you don't look so good."
"Just fly." Dreadite closed his eyes, and tried to sleep as the
helicopter set out for Veridian.
*Water. Cold, dark.*
Dreadite opened his eyes slowly. "Did you say something?"
The rocket shrugged. "No sir."
TBC? (Well, I guess I should.. I suddenly lost the point of this post.
The darkness, all around. Ghosts are like shadows,
escaping death but for a moment,
like shadows flitting from light.
Ghostly we are, flitting from death but for a moment.
