Officer Jenny pulled up to the Celadon Shopping Center and got off her
motorcycle. "Stop, thief!"
The thief, a thin female, turned around and sneered. She dropped the
barrel she held and pulled out a long, barbed whip and a Pokeball,
saying "Would you like to re-think that move?"
Officer Jenny pulled out a gun, and two Growlithes ran up to flank her.
"No, actually I wouldn't. Drop the whip, and step away slowly." She
pointed the gun at the lady, who didn't back down. Suddenly a gleaming
object flew from the roof, knocking the gun away. The dagger stuck in
the ground at Jenny's feet, and the gun was now yards away. A man clad
entirely in black, with black mask and 'pointy shoulder things', did a
flip off the roof, landing behind the thief, who had already released a
Scyther from it's Pokeball. The man grinned.
"Nobody stops the Triad of Eternity. Call off your Growlithes before
they come back on their own... in pieces."
Officer Jenny looked around for help. Seeing none (the townspeople were
naturally cowering), she snapped. The Growlithes backed down. The man
bowed. "Thank you for your cooperation." He whistled, and a truck pulled
up. The two thieves grabbed the barrel and jumped in the back, and it
sped off. Jenny stared in bewilderment. "How odd, that's the fifth
stolen keg of gunpowder this month! At least now we have the face of one
of them, and their group's name..."
Speeding off, Grixil, Cecile, and Rangoth gave each other high fives.
Then Grixil spoke. "Good haul... we should now have enough gunpowder to
blow up the whole volcano! Now all we need is transportation, and I have
a good idea where to get some!" He was still miffed about losing that
dagger, but he had spares at camp. No big deal.
Cecile nodded. "Nothing can stand in our way. But Grixil... what was
that 'Triad of Eternitry' crap? I thought we agreed not to use any
stupid code names."
Grixil grinned, balancing a dagger on his finger. "Ah, that's just to
give the media a field day, and another false lead for the cops. I want
people to know who blew up the world. Soon, let's 'let slip' our actual
names... anyway, Rangoth, head to camp. We've gotta rest up, there's a
big day awaiting us! We're heading to Pewter!"
