I remember you too! You may not recognize me now, but in the past I was both SonicChannelPSN and... ugh, BATTLEBEARSFREAK101. But anyways, yeah, I'm doing just fine. Just trying to chug through life to see if anything interesting happens. How are you holding up?
Chapter 2: A Cause for Alarm
03 March 7PM, Base of Icicle Mountains
The blizzard hit fast, we had to set up camp at the base of the mountain and wait it out. We are probably going to be stuck here for the night, as this early in the year, it gets to dangerously cold temperatures in the mountain, even in the daytime. We had Foxtrot light a fire so we wouldn’t freeze. Revolution and I will take the night watch to spare some our less experienced soldiers the pain of having to climb a mountain tired…
04 March 2AM, Base of Icicle Mountain
All was quiet, for the most part. By this time, everyone had gone to their tents and was sound asleep. Anarchy and Revolution were awake, but silent.
“What is the plan of action after we visit Articuno?” Revolution finally asked.
Anarchy, having slightly dozed off, snapped awake “Hmmmm….? Oh yeah, the plan. To be honest, I don’t know, I hoped Articuno could lead us somewhere.”
Some time passed, and this time it was Revolution who was dozing off when Anarchy shook him awake.
“Do you hear that?” Anarchy asked. Revolution said “Boy and I thought you were the mature one of the two of us, there are going to be noises out here. They are just wild Pokemon.” Listening again however, Revolution heard a howling, and it was getting closer.
“Warn the squad.” Anarchy yelled “Quickly!” Revolution ran off, and Anarchy looked ahead “Houndoom…” He muttered “Great, just what we need already…” He fired off a Bubblebeam as a warning to the oncoming threats, but they did not stop, they just charged forward. “These aren’t just any Houndoom, these guys are really out for us!”
As the Houndoom approached, Anarchy cloaked himself in water and fired off towards the enemy with Aqua Jet.
03 March 7:30AM
It has begun to snow, I halfway expected Diamond to be complaining at this point. I filled Diamond and the crew in on our new plan: First, we must traverse through the Icicle mountains nearby and speak to Articuno, who lives there. As the Icicle Mountains are the closest land barrier to the Kingdom, I figured that maybe Articuno might have some insight on what happened to the kingdom that fateful night. We exit the Kingdom’s boundaries at 8:00, who knows what we will find out there. I have faith though, I have my brother and crew behind me, and even though I am not happy that Diamond decided to come, I know she will be a great addition to the team.
Anarchy prepared to attack before being held back by some force
“...........................!” Before Anarchy could say anything, in his head or otherwise, Diamond spoke up.
“You sure do act fast upon your actions don’t you, it was but last night that you can up with this crazy plan.”
Anarchy could hardly contain his anger “How did you….?” before hearing a voice in his head again.
“You know telekinesis was not the only power I gained upon evolving yes?”
Everyone looked around, seemingly having heard the voice too.
“Mind reading was another useful skill I gained.”
Diamond released Anarchy “How could you leave without me, I am strong enough, I don’t want to be left behind in that kingdom anymore.” She points to the castle
“It was for your own safety…” was all Anarchy came up with
“So you are saying all this time we have spent together, all that training we have done, was for nothing?! I am coming with, and there is nothing you can do to stop me.”
Diamond yelled with tears in her eyes
More silence followed
“If our relationship means anything to you, we are going together, regardless of the dangers that lie ahead, ‘We will be together until the very end’ wasn’t that your promise?”
