705 words - LET'S GET LEONA MOVING!
Today was the day. Months and months of training, learning, and suffering through the seemingly endless torrent of people who lived in Ashfield, all led up to this moment. The moment she would leave Ashfield and explore the world. It was thrilling, and relieving. She still had so many bottled up emotions that she'd never gotten a chance to process through, not properly anyway. Sure, there were day excursions into the forest, but she needed more time than that. Always coming back to that little family, who didn't even want her there aside from the boy, was less than helpful to her thoughts.

She loaded up the supplies she'd purchased into the bag they'd been kind enough to help her get. Really, she was sure the couple was simply happy she was finally leaving there lives. The feeling was mutual, of course, though she would miss Max a bit. He'd been so clingy to her, and despite her loathing the clingy demeanor, it was hard not to like the kid. After all, they did share one of the most important events to her life, and he was always so gosh darn happy. She really appreciated that about him.

All packed and ready, she moved into the living room where the whole family was waiting. The toddler crawled across the floor, moving towards the faithful luxio who laid off to the side, eyes flickering between the toddler and Leona. The others looked up at her, Max sprinting over and throwing his arms around her waist. Yeah, that had pretty much been the reaction she'd expected. He had not been happy when she announced she was leaving to travel to the mountains, but after a good discussion he understood why she was going, even if he didn't like it. He was a really mature kid.

"I'm gonna miss you so much Ona. Things won't be the same without you. She placed a hand on his head and smirked. "Yeah, I know. But it's about time I get out of your parents' hair. She detached him, keeping his hands in hers, and crouched to look at him in the eyes. "I'll be back, no worries. So you just focus on getting bigger. And hey, maybe one day we can go on an adventure together." His sad eyes brightened up at that idea. "Yeah! I'm holding you to that!" They shared a final one-sided hug, and she even went so far as to pat his back.

They split, and she nodded at the man and woman sitting, watching the two of them. "Thanks again, for everything. I do appreciate all you did for me." Her relationship with them had never been positive, only neutral. She knew from the start this was not an arrangement they'd been interested in. They'd only entertained it because anytime they tried to push her out, it led to a screaming fight with their adopted son. But now they would all be better off, living their lives separately.

The jolteon padded into the room behind her, heading for the front door. It was time to leave. She moved to the door and opened it, the fox sprinting out and getting into the sunlight. The woman spared a final look at the dark-skinned boy with the curly hair, soaking in the bittersweet moment and casting her final good bye. Max said goodbye as well, tears bubbling at his eyes, and she stepped out of the door and closed it behind her, taking a moment to collect herself. This was what she wanted. This is what they both needed.

Leona started off, jogging towards the trees on the edge, finding the trail that had been carved after many years of trade good being moved between Ashfield and Crater city. Based on the map, Crater City was on the way to the mountains, and traveling through the plains would be much easier than trying to navigate the thick forest. She needed to stick to the trail as best she could to make good time and ensure she wouldn't get lost. She sped up with a smile as Jolteon silently challenged her, the two of them starting their adventure off with a brisk run.

@Kaien

The Western Great Forest was indeed dark and thick and unfriendly to travelers. Heading directly for Crater City would at least give her a faint path to follow; assuming she and her quick-footed partner remained focused and aware enough not to lose the trail, they would have it to guide them for most of their journey there. It did get a little patchy during the middling miles between the two cities, but if they kept their heads about them, they'd have no problem. But that was neither here nor there; that was a problem for future Leona and future Jolteon.

Present Leona and present Jolteon didn't seem to have a care in the world as they made a hasty exodus out of Ashfield City. Whether startled away by their speed and confidence, or perhaps out of sheer luck, the duo ran into neither Pokemon nor person for hours, and hours, and hours, and hours. In fact, the entire day passed by without either of them glimpsing more than a fleeing Rattata or a Pidgey winging overhead en route to some distant destination.

The weather was as unobtrusive as the local fauna was. Late summer was, of course, still hot and humid- but compared to days previous, the temperature was much more bearable. Light, wispy clouds obscured the sun here and there throughout the day, somewhat lessening the day's intense heat. A delicate breeze from the south blew past them, as if encouraging them on their way.

All in all, it was a peaceful, uneventful day and evening; Leona and her Jolteon partner were free to do with it what they willed.

1046 words - Happy Travels :D
The woman continued along the carved path between the two main cities. She'd studied up on where she was going, and knew from gossip around the town that this path was the common route between Ashfield and Crater. Not her end destination, but simply the first piece of her trip. She decided, this being her very first time travelling, it was safer to break the trip into pieces rather than journey through the plains in one go. After all, she'd never even been outside the forest, let alone far from the city itself. She had no intention of simply dying of starvation or otherwise from being lost on the way to the camp in the mountains.

Jolteon was right by her side most of the times, sprinting ahead from time to time to get bursts of energy out. Of course, she wasn't one to turn down a challenge, so many times she would sprint alongside her partner, a wry smile on her face as they pushed forward. But her human body tended to get tired out much more quickly than the fox's lithe frame, so inevitably she'd have to slow down first. But that didn't stop her from going at it once again after little breaks, the two of them weaving through plants and trees along the very edge of the path to add a little more fun to it, little pokemon in the shadows skittering away from them.

She should hunt. She knew that, and had considered from the beginning hunting a bit here and there along the way to the next city. But then, she was making such good progress so far. No pokemon showed themselves, no people on the trail, the weather was absolutely perfect, the warm sun beating down on her skin. It was a rather perfect day, for her and the creature traveling with her. Besides, there would be a few more days on the trip likely. She'd have other chances to hunt. For now, she could simply enjoy herself as they made great time, being uninterrupted.

Eventually they'd be required to stop, twice within the span of the day. After all, despite their eagerness to keep going and never stop running, the both of them did require food. Since they'd left early, they stopped once in the afternoon for a brief snack and then once in the evening for the rest of it, saving some of the supply pack to snack on later. The lovely leather bag weighed on her shoulders, slightly aching by the time the sun started to descend, marking night time. But it was no matter. She was confident those muscles would build up the more she worked them.

The sun would start to disappear on the horizon, marking the shift from day to night. As it grew darker, the two of them had to call it quits, the path head growing tougher and tougher to see. She didn't want to trip and hurt herself, and besides, they could use a little rest. If the next day went this well too, they'd be at the plains in no time. Not that she was especially rushing the travels, happy to be out and in the wilds with time to think, but she was a little giddy about being somewhere new.

Her thoughts had been swarming all day, about things past, things forgotten... mostly, things forgotten. Every day there was something new she discovered, some little inkling of knowledge or a trick she didn't know she could do. And every time, Leona was filled with anger. Frustration tore at each fiber of her being, threatening to tear her apart from the lack of knowledge, of understanding, or basic human memories. It was her greatest hate in the world, that which was towards her situation as an immigrant.

But it fueled. It was the whole reason for the trip. The idea that she could have answers soon glimmered deep within her core, pushing her forward. Keeping her excited to go to the mountains, to meet this so called 'witch'. It would happen. She was going to make it happen, and nothing and nobody would stop her. Her concerns only intensified as they set about making camp, no tent and only the two of them to account for. It was easy to find a small spot close to the path, where no pokemon seemed to be lurking. Staying close to the path meant less chance that something would bother them in the middle of the night.

Leo finished the night by collecting wood, starting a small fire, and finding a comfy nook in the folds of large roots sprouting from a nearby tree. As many of her sides that could be covered, the better. As the fire started to flicker out, only the embers remaining while her mind continued to spiral down the many paths of what she might find on this journey of hers, Jolteon moved in and laid across her lap, the bag strapped backwards to sit in front of her body as well. Her hands moved to pet the fox rhythmically, her routine that helped clear her head and ease her to sleep.

And sleep she did. Rather soundly, comparatively to normal. With no toddler around to wake up at ungodly hours of the night, screaming and crying incessantly no matter what her parents did, she was able to stay asleep the entire time. Well, mostly. She woke a couple times, stirring and listening before falling back asleep, no creatures threatening the two of them as they rested. Eventually, morning came, and she stirred awake, seeing the colors in the sky marking early sunrise. She stretched and gently stirred the yellow-furred creature awake, the both of them letting out a mighty yawn in unison.

It didn't take long to pack up, as they hadn't really unpacked in the first place. She set her backpack the correct way on her shoulders, and nodded to the Jolteon as they both set about taking care of their own business before breakfast. Once they'd eaten and gotten ready, they took off once again, the morning air crisp on her skin as she pushed forward on the trail. They were ready to take on another day, excited for the possibilities it would bring.

@Kaien

As the duo stretched out their forms, rousing their bodies to begin another day of travel, the sunrise cast a pleasant orangey glow...

Over a battlefield of carnage and destruction.

The Jolteon would likely be the first to sense it, due to the advantage the fox had over the human: a keen sense of smell. Singed fur and cooked flesh and spilt blood were on the air, but there was no wind this early morning, so they would not be warned of the bloodshed until they were practically on top of it.

Two reptiles faced off across the path that Leona was tracking, both low to the ground and silent as they regarded one another. One was a lizard, deep gray and black with a long, whiplike tail. The other, well, was all tail, as snakes are, and was a light purple.

They were utterly still, their heavy but subdued breathing the only noises for just a moment longer. Then in a flash of speed, the lizard flung her tail around and forward, dashing the snake in the face with a spray of dirt. Before the snake could recover or react in any way, this was followed up by a spit up of small burning embers which followed the sand and soil, burning shallowly into the snake's face.

Less than a second after the lizard had launched the attacks, the snake had shot forward, barreling through the attacks in an attempt to encircle the lizard- who dodged out of the way just in time. Not to be outdone, however, the snake's tail took on a silver sheen and it flailed out to slam down hard onto the lizard's head.

The lizard stumbled back, releasing a thick plume of purple from her nostrils, which wafted forward and enveloped the snake, who hissed and convulsed as she breathed in the tainted air before she had realized what was happening.

All around the battle site were slain prey; this was, quite obviously, what the two reptiles were fighting so ferociously over. Two segmented caterpillar creatures, tan and adorned with stingers on their ends, as well as a purple rat, lay motionless off to the side, warmth leaving their bodies as their predators duked it out to determine who would win the feast. Well, they weren't all entirely dead; if Leona paid close enough attention, two of them were still breathing, albiet shallowly. The unfortunate rat seemed entirely out of it, as though he was barely hanging on to life. He had a large gash on his belly and likely would not be living for much longer. One of the bugs, however, had been the sole creature to notice the quiet arrival of the human and her fox companion, and his eyes fixated onto her.

Instinct told her that the human was her only chance at life. She wasn't sure how good the chance was, but... she was willing to take a risk. Ignoring the searing pain that came from the burn across her face and the long cut down her back, she began to gradually crawl toward Leona, an intense determination shining in her eyes. This pain was nothing if it meant her ultimate survival. Her eyes stayed fixated on Leona, her goal.

765 words - Oh Leona -n-
Well, this was interesting.

She crouched immediately at the sight of pokemon, her training kicking in immediately. If there was one main takeaway from Stern's lessons, it was the importance of not being seen. Which, given his tall muscular build, was really saying a lot coming from him. She took it to heart, pulling behind a bush. Jolteon's fur stood up, a couple subtle sparks popping as she jolted behind a tree, waiting for her trainer's signal. They needed to get an idea of the situation first, before deciding on how to proceed.

It was a lizard versus a snake, the snake seeming much more intimidating than its opponent. It was much larger and longer, which meant it likely would have more strength to accompany the shape. Though she was a living testament to size not determining the winner of a fight. She was a fierce hunter, despite being smaller than most. What she lacked in brute she made up for in quickness and cunning, much like the partner that followed her around. She enjoyed that they seemed to make a good team.

One of the dying bugs was crawling over towards her, having noticed her. She cursed under her breathe for being seen by the creature, as it could give away her position. Peeking through the bush she hid behind as the weedle continued to get closer, she watched the fight carefully. The little salandit released a toxic gas that seemed to have quite the affect on the snake. That was certainly something to avoid. She and Jolteon couldn't afford to become poisoned, especially this far out on their travels. Therefore, she knew who's side to take immediately.

Perhaps if they played their cards right, they could manage to get through this fight with minimal injury or effort. A team effort with one of the fighters would be good, and she definitely wasn't going to go with the already poisoned one. Her money was on the lizard winning already, so that was the team to jump on. Of course, the fox was much more suited for this kind of thing, so she would be the one to go in and join. Leona's strengths lied elsewhere, though if the opportunity presented itself, she could potentially help. A snake was a dangerous opponent for her, as it would be difficult to detain and take out quickly.

She locked eyes with Jolteon as the weedle made it over to her bush, looking up at her with needy eyes. It was prey, already beaten and practically dead. Did it expect her to heal it? Leo focused on the more important take for the moment, locking gaze with the fox. She drew a lightning bolt in the air, and pointed to the snake, making sure to over shoot the direction slightly to emphasis which one to attack. They both nodded, and the yellow fur started to spark a bit more and rustle as electricity collected in it.

The pokemon stepped out, pulsing in energy that she quickly fired off towards the ekans. Her thunder shock shot across the distance, attempting to strike the ekans. Once the attack was finished, she channeled her energy to the salandit, speaking her intention quickly. "Allow us to help. Give it your all." The energy from the helping hand would hopefully boost the pokemon's next attack, causing the battle to be ended even more quickly. If the ekans made the mistake of coming after her, it would be the last mistake the snake ever made.

Leona returned her attention to the weedle, who was clearly suffering. Another lesson from Stern - Pokemon should not be made to suffer. Those she hunted for food should be treated with respect, as any creature should be naturally. It was a sentiment she agreed with, so seeing this bug suffering wasn't good in her book. She carefully reached for the pokemon, seeing it in terrible condition. If it allowed her, she would place her hands around it gently lifting the creature up, careful to make sure the horn wasn't within striking distance of her without effort. Then, she adjusted her hands, softly inspecting the burns and wounds on the creature. Her hands shifted around the caterpillar, while she decided what to do.

If it had given her its trust, it would be a mistake. Deciding silently it was past saving, she would move to snap its head, attempting to finish it off quickly and painlessly. No creature deserved to suffer from the pain of all these injuries. She wanted to end it quickly for the poor thing.

@Kaien

"Past saving" was a matter of opinion, and the bug creature's opinion of her own situation was vastly different from Leona's opinion of it. But the bug's opinion was not asked, and death came with nothing more than a snap. It wasn't exactly the cleanest break. It started to snap, but the neck resisted Leona's attempts somewhat for one long second before snapping the rest of the way, head finally twisted, the bug's eyes screwed shut and frozen that way in death as she had realized at the last moment what was happening to her. Providing the service of a quick death was something that Leona apparently needed a bit more practice at.

Both the Salandit and the Ekans gave a hiss as the electric fox first stepped out; each assuming that they were about to be ganged up on. They tensed. The Jolteon made clear her side in this fight quickly, however, much to the displeasure of the snake, who leaked another, softer, angrier hiss as the bolts of electric energy shot toward her and pulsated swiftly through the length of her serpentine body. Ignoring the Jolteon's words but eager to take advantage of the situation, the Salandit breathed in deeply as the foreign energy flowed through her. She spat out embers onto the hesitating snake, peppering the opposing reptile with skin-deep burns.

The turn-around of her odds had happened so fast, the Ekan's head was spinning. It was time to cut her losses and get out of here. The odds were definitely not in her favor anymore, and as much as she was loathe to turn her back on such a large, belly-warming meal... the risk was too high. Still, she couldn't resist firing a few parting shots- poisonous ones- at the interfering Jolteon as she attempted to slither sideways out of there, abandoning the battle and the carnage... assuming the other two would let her flee.

795 words - :D
Well, the look in the weedle's face told her she wasn't quite as good at instant execution as she had hoped she'd be. Didn't matter now. Leona simply continued to work, shifting again to truly put the pokemon out of its misery. Even if the death wasn't as painless as she'd wanted it to be, at least it had been quicker than if the thing had been left to slowly wither away and die from natural causes. No innocent creature deserved that.

The electricity hit its target perfectly, and the jolteon smiled in pride from it. That snake didn't stand a chance against her alone, much less with the help of the little fire lizard, who promptly shot off more fire to follow up in the attack. Her words weren't answered, but she hardly cared. All that mattered was that it cooperated for now, and hopefully they'd get some food out of it. Though they hadn't really done the work here, and she was curious how the human would attempt to split the takings.

But unfortunately, the ekans wasn't quite finished. The stings soared out from the snakes mouth, pushing across the clearing and towards her. She was too busy being distracted as her mind ran at a million thoughts a minute that she was too late to dodge the attack. That was definitely not something to be proud of it. She was likely the quickest pokemon alive, and the first strike from a snake hit her. Whelp, she'd have to try not to get distracted next time.

Luckily, the stings hadn't piered her skin to deliver any poison. While she had a few surface pricks from the stingers, nothing delivered deep enough to allow the poison entrance into her system. She wasn't keen on going on a search for something to cure it, and who knew whether the human would be helpful. She was a bit of a wild card when it came to, well, anything. Some things she could do, others she couldn't. And either way she seemed pretty clueless.

Leona dipped her shoulder to allow better entrance into her bag, shifting the opening open large enough for the body. It looked a bit awkward, and the others were wrapping up their battle still, but it was necessary, she felt. With the one weedle in her bag, she looked at the situation, and noted the snake slithering away. Well, that was quick and easy. Good. She caught glimpse of Jolteon getting him, but she seemed rather unbothered by the attack overall.

With that over, it was time to claim prizes. Which also came the risk. The salandit had been fighting for the whole haul, surely, but hadn't expected intervention from a third party. Leo assumed she probably wouldn't want to share, because she sure wouldn't in the same situation. If another hunter sniped in on her prey, she'd be furious. Well, the one was already stashed away, so she was keeping it. But the other two...

Yeah, they didn't need it that badly. She elected to give those two over to the lizard. Best to keep the peace anyways, and avoid having to battle and wear the fox out more than necessary. They had a long trip ahead, or so she'd been told. She picked up the bodies nearby, assuming the salandit would be waiting to see how they would move with the fight now over. She held them out, and towards the pokemon, locking eyes with the creature. Wordlessly, as it wouldn't understand her even if she did speak, she moved towards the lizard and placed both bodies in front of the salandit. They were her winnings, and she wouldn't impose any further on that.

She nodded to the creature, and started to walk back on their path. The woman waved to the jolteon, who rolled their eyes. Why had the hunter given up all that meat for free? She could have at least tried to get one body for each of them. That was even, right? Well, regarding wild pokemon's opinions of humans, and the fact that she hadn't actually done anything in the fight, she could understand if the salandit would be resistent to that. She turned her head to the lizard. "Plenty more where that came from, if you wanna tag along. Would be nice to have another creature to actually talk to, since this human can't understand anything. Plus, she's an adequate hunter."

Leona turned to look, seeing Jolteon conversing with the salandit. She spared the lizard a curious look. "Eh? If you want to come along, I wouldn't complain, I guess." It would be another mouth to feed, but it's also an ally in hunting. Plus, fire was good for cooking on the go.

@Kaien

The Salandit puffed out her chest as the Ekans fled, glad to see the snake go. She turned away, having no interest in pursuing the defeated opponent. She was no fool- she knew a cornered, desperate enemy was a dangerous one, and she knew that she wasn't invulnerable. She'd fight when she was confident with her chances and if there was a good prize to be won that was worth the risk of injury. There was no such prize in chasing down the fleeing Ekans. Her prize lay here.

She kept the human and the Jolteon in her sights at all times, even as she threw her gaze over the battlefield. It was highly suspicious that two complete strangers had come out of nowhere to aide in making her battle much swifter and easier than it would have otherwise been. The question was, why had they done it. There was always some ulterior motive to everyone's actions, and this was particularly true of humans. She didn't have much personal experience with humans, but what experience she did have backed up the stories and the rumors that she had always heard.

As she moved across the battlefield toward the fallen Rattata, she realized that one of the two bugs was nowhere to be seen. So that was it. Her eyes narrowed as she gave a soft hiss as she glared toward the two of them, but she swallowed the fiery anger that rose in her throat. That was the reason she had gotten into the fierce battle with the Ekans- the other reptile had had the audacity to try to encroach upon the spoils of her hunt. But she knew she would not win against a Pokemon so healthy and rested when she herself was so battleworn, especially not one who was accompanied by a tricky human. Besides, she had to admit that she had been lucky to come across and fell three prey in one hunt. She also had to admit that the Jolteon- and by association, the human- had done her a favor, saving her from further injury from the Ekans.

So she'd allow the stolen bug to go unchallenged. But she certainly let them know that she knew, hissing a second time at them as she settled herself down beside the Rattata, rolling it toward her until the fleshy back of it was toward her. They seemed to be about to go on their She clawed at the fur and the skin to get to the fat and muscle beneath, her gaze flicking upward as the Jolteon began to speak. Hadn't they been about to leave? She was fully prepared to ignore whatever the fox had to say, but... she found herself intrigued by the offer that was made.



befriending attempt + encounter results
I'm setting the befriending chance at 45. She's a suspicious lizard, and she is confident in her ability to survive on her own. Still, she is smart and she knows opportunity when she sees it. RNG says... 70. :u But while I'm here, I'm awarding Jolteon 4 EXP for her brief participation in the fight against the Ekans.


She didn't know them, she didn't trust them. They seemed strong enough, but she was, too. She didn't need them and it wasn't worth the risk to give them the benefit of a doubt.

//I appreciate you shocking that Ekans, but you've already taken your spoils. Let me eat mine.// Her response wasn't angry, merely blunt. She returned her attention to the meat of the rat before her, bloodying her long snout with her meal. She would not protest if they stayed; unless, of course, they attempted to steal any more of her kills. But she was hungry and she would not be distracted from enjoying her prize.

416 words - Whatevs.
Leona watched with a quirked eyebrow as she wondered what would happen next. It seemed the lizard was weighing them, as if thinking deeply. So, perhaps she had been correct about Jolteon wanting it to come along with them. It seemed odd, as she didn't feel a need to have any other creatures or humans around besides the fox. But eh, she wouldn't complain about the extra help. And hey, maybe the pokemon just wants someone around she can actually talk to. Legendaries know the two of them have no real way of conversing.

Not that she was entirely interested in idle chatter, but she was curious about the fox's thoughts from time to time. And even though the woman preferred to be left alone to her own musings, sometimes she did crave a little interaction. And this jolteon was the closest thing to her in the world. Her and Max, were the only two she felt some attachment too. Well, and Stern, but those emotions were all tangled and confusing. Plus, he'd left at first light anyway. So there was no point dwelling on... whatever that had been. She started to blush, and quickly diverted her thinking.

Jolteon shrugged and turned away from the salandit, totally okay with leaving her to her winnings. Well, it had been worth a shot. Wasn't as if they could force the lizard to come along after all. At least they'd gotten away from the two poison types without getting poisoned. She was certainly thankful for that. Being poisoned was super annoying, and she doubted the human had enough knowledge to track down an antidote, so it was better this way. Plus the pain was pleasant, and she didn't enjoy unpleasant. She trotted up next to the human, who'd turned and started off at her approach. Their silent communication was on point after months together.

Leona had assumed by Jolteon coming over to continue on, and the lizard staying behind to eat, that they did not have a new addition to the team. Fine by her. It was one less mouth to feed after all. It wasn't as if she was pushing either way, but was curious what the fox besides her had thought about it. Pointless musing, but entertaining enough. She started into a comfortable jog, not warning the electric type. But, she didn't need to. Her partner sped up immediately and went a little past her, looking back as if challenging her.

And it was so on.

Their silent competition wouldn't have much time to fall into a rhythm; perhaps only a mile further along the path, a prepubescent voice and some flashes of orange would catch the attention of Leona and her fox. The sources of the noise and color were not directly on the path, and thus could be entirely avoided if that was Leona's choice, but they were making no effort to be hidden and were easily heard and spotted from the path.

"Again!"

A little orange monkey, not more than maybe a foot tall with a tuft of hair on his head and a tuft of flame posing as a tail, spat the tiniest of flames at a vine hanging from the branch of a tree, aiming for the spade-shaped leaves that sprouted from the main line of the plant. The leaves were peppered with holes and scorch marks as the embers mostly landed on their marks, with a few falling harmlessly to the rainforest floor, their orange or red glow puttering out and leaving nothing but the tiniest pinch of ash behind.

The Chimchar was breathing heavily, its entire thin form heaving as he struggled to regain his breath.

"Progress. Good job, Ears. Do it again, and follow it up with a scratch to cut the vine down so we can use it for later training. Then you can rest."

For a boy who couldn't be much older than twelve or thirteen, he apparently ran an intense training regimen for his fire monkey. After gulping in a bit more air, Ears the Chimchar obeyed the boy's commands, leaping up and loosing another couple of embers to pepper the leaves with, before crouching and jumping up again, higher this time, stretching out his arm and claws to scratch where the vine attached to the branch, cutting it so that it crumpled to the forest floor. The chimp grabbed the vine and brought it over to the boy before collapsing at the kid's feet.

"Good. You're getting good at that fire attack." The boy praised, crouching down beside his Pokemon and fanning the panting primate with a large leaf that he held in both of his hands.

At this point, if Leona or her Jolteon had stopped to watch, the boy would look up and over at them with ever-so-slightly squinted eyes, but would say nothing unless spoken to.

522 words - Stealth Points/EXP? Current: +1
Leona's ear twitched at the sound that didn't belong. A voice. Based on the word spoken that she could understand, it was from another human. This far out? She decided to investigate. No one could be trusted, especially in the wilds, and she wasn't about to get caught by surprise. She slowed and stopped quickly, the yellow fox falling in step as well. She was much less bothered by the noise, but was sticking with the fun human nonetheless.

She carefully stepped through, watching the ground and the duo as they continued training, the little monkey spitting rather tiny flames from its mouth. It was a somewhat pathetic display, but she wasn't here to judge. She tried to keep her self silent, attempting to make sure she didn't step on anything, as she moved behind a tree and peeked around, looking to inspect the both of them more clearly from afar.

She watched, noticing the boy was rather young. Older than Max, but not by much. It was a bit of a pang to the heart, but she quickly brushed off the emotion to focus on the situation at hand. She pretty quickly ruled out this kid as dangerous, especially given that he was training so hard. But she thought about how far out she was from the city, well over a day and still a few days to the next city over, and wondered why this kid was all the way out here.

Though she had absolutely no interest in returning to the city for some dumb kid who wandered out too far, she still found herself peeking through the brush at the kid, who was now fanning and praising his rather tired pokemon. That was even worse, given his pokemon was worn out while he was apparently alone so far into the forest. It was a pokemon eat human world as she saw it, and this boy seemed like a perfect target for any roaming predator.

She couldn't just walk away, apparently.

Stepping out of the tree, more relaxed in her posture, she moved towards him, calling out a monotonous 'hey kid' in his direction. She didn't get too close, not wanting to appear to be a threat to him, but made herself visible. Jolteon was right by her side, but couldn't be more relaxed about the situation. Her eyes passed around the surrounding woods, searching for any sign that this was a trap, or that the boy and monkey were not alone, aside from the two of them.

"Isn't it a little dangerous to be this far out all alone? Are you here with anyone besides the little fire monkey?" Her question was blunt and to the point - she had no interest in casual chatting with some kid. She was on route to Crater, and didn't want to waste a second more than she had to. Part of her mind was still screaming at her to just walk away and continue on. This boy was none of her business. But she found she couldn't just turn a blind eye to the kid, so here she was.

For now.

As Leona spoke to him, the boy's stare was deadpan. Instead of answering the questions, he flipped them back to her.

"I dunno- isn't it a little dangerous for you to be this far out all alone? Do you have anyone with you besides that..." he trailed off and furrowed his brow as he looked down at Jolteon. He wasn't sure what it was, exactly. "...um, dog?" Okay, his hesitance there at the end kind of detracted from the presentation, but the point was still there. His bluntness matched Leona's own as he continued speaking, his brown-eyed gaze flicking back up to meet her own, apparently unintimidated by the woman.

"You think, because I'm younger than you, that I'm stupid or weak or both. You're wrong... And yes, I do have one more Pokemon with me, he's in his pokeball." He patted one of the pockets of his (clearly immigrant, because of all the metal zippers and snaps) cargo shorts to indicate where the ball was.

"So. Unless you've got items to trade, or you want to help me train... I'm good." His gaze lingered on Leona for another beat, before dropping down to look at his fire monkey again.

The Chimchar, while his trainer was speaking, managed to recover somewhat and was breathing a little less heavily, though he didn't appreciate that his trainer had been somewhat distracted by the conversation and was no longer fanning him as effectively. Still, he remained cordial enough, lifting his hand to wave somewhat at the Jolteon that accompanied the female human. He couldn't quite manage words yet, as he was still panting a bit and didn't want to waste air on what was likely a pointless greeting.

403 words - U DON'T KNOW ME
Leona ground her teeth as the boy spoke - getting snide and pushing her questions back at her. She was just trying to check in, to be nice to the kid. She never stated he couldn't handle himself, simply that its dangerous to be out all this way alone. The nerve of this boy to get all up in arms about it. And then he started saying what she was apparently thinking, according to him. And that was what really got under her skin. He couldn't read her mind. He couldn't actually know what she thought. How dare he assume her thoughts based off a stereotype he'd created from interacting with others, and lump them together.

"Maybe you should try asking questions before coming to conclusions." She retorted, moving straight into answering his question. "Yes, it is dangerous for me to be out here alone. I don't have the skills or knowledge to do much, and I sure can't remember crap outside the last couple seasons. I took a calculated risk to go follow some stories that could help me remember my past." She leaned her weight on one leg as her brow furrowed, continuing to stare back at the boy.

"Don't assume to know what I, or anyone is thinking. I didn't stop because I thought you were weak or stupid. You just... remind me of someone I know. Don't read into it." She got out the last words of what she wanted to get out, taking a breath after. She paused, before continuing. "I don't have anything to trade, but no training right now. I've still got too far to go to risk wearing myself out too early. Best to be prepared in my book." She spared another look at the little monkey. "Though it looks like your little friend there needs a break anyway."

Throughout the exchange, Jolteon simply listened. As her human started piping up in that annoyed tone of hers, she laid down on all fours, realizing this could take a while and she was already bored. She did, however, raise a paw and bark softly at the monkey. "You okay there? Look like you're about to fall over." She snickered, which sounded like a few curt breaths. The poor thing really did look like it needed a nap. She was glad her human didn't try to make her train like that.

@Kaien

The little boy's gaze was, and remained the entire time Leona spoke back to him, unflinching. He never broke eye contact during their verbal power struggle. Behind his stalwart brown eyes, his mind was struggling a bit with the bigger words and the more complex and abstract concepts that accompanied Leona's words.

"I don't believe you," he said, "I think... I think if I was as old and as big as you, or even older and bigger," he gestured upward and outward to to emphasize his point, "you wouldn't have stopped. Or... or you'd have said something... different. Hmph." His eyes squinted at Leona as he made his statement- though he seemed to be struggling a bit to find the right words to express his idea- and then his arms crossed over his chest. Despite his proclaimed disbelief, he listened to everything that Leona had to say, albeit with his eyes stuck in a squint.

"Fine. I reminded you of someone who can't survive in the forest. You reminded me of someone who wouldn't believe in me and would try to tell me what to do. I guess we can both be wrong." He finally dropped his intense stare and looked down at Ears as Leona brought him into the conversation.

"Yeah, he's tired. That's why we stopped, obviously." He bit his tongue to keep back the don't tell me what to do that threatened to escape. Apparently he couldn't quite drop his defensiveness, despite his sort-of-half-hearted admission that he had been wrong about the strange girl that had come up to him. "But he's a lot stronger already than when I met him." He paused, considered something, and then looked back up at Leona. "where are you going to?" His curiosity, apparently, was stronger than whatever grudge, earned or unearned, he had against Leona (or, more likely, against adults in general).

Ears, meanwhile, had given a grin in response to the Jolteon's greeting and questioning. //Ayay, I'm good! Boy would I love a nap, though- actually, I'd love a tasty lunch! Mm, I hope Brenton's caught a bug in one of his little traps. I'm so hungry I could eat a Scolipede, heheha!// The little primate giggled and snorted. //But look at what I can do, now!// He spat a tiny burst of embers, not at Jolteon, but at the ground right in front of his own feet. It hit a fallen leaf which threatened to burn away, but the leaf was too green so it didn't catch. Still, the Chichmar looked mighty proud. //Sometimes it's even bigger!//

511 words - Stickin' around... for now
She was still not pleased with his accusations - whether misguided or not - but she was willing to move past it. It wasn't like she'd ever see this kid again anyway, so what was the point getting up in arms about something so tiny. Of course, her snide comment had still been warranted in her book. His skepticism about her response, but willingness to keep an open mind and shape his prejudice about her due to her age was respectable at least.

She shrugged. "Believe what you will. Not like I can change your mind about what you believe, even if I wanted to. Which, let's be clear, I don't." This was just some stranger in the forest. Sure, she had been reminded of Max a bit, but this boy was much more fiesty and angry. A bit more like her than Max. That alone was enough to separate whatever strange emotions she had about the child she'd left in the city, despite his protests.

"Smart. Some people don't know their own or others' limits. I don't really tell this fox here what to do, since she just kind of tags along, but I've seen others barking commands blindly at pokemon before." Though it was technically a compliment, there was no sugar-coating or lighter tone to her words. She was simply speaking bluntly what she thought, not looking to impress this kid.

Though it was odd to talk to him about her destination, she mentally shrugged it off. Not like it would hurt to tell him, right? "The mountains. Heard talk that someone there might be able to help find some... missing information." More specifically: Her memories. Those were the key to figuring out what the heck this place was, who she was, all the things she didn't know. And if this 'witch' or whatever was close to finding something about that? Who cares how he did it. She wanted answers.

Leona tapped her fingers on her leg awkwardly, unsure why she was continuing the conversation. She should probably just leave. That's what she felt like doing. But was there really harm in figuring out this kid? If she was honest, she was curious. "This your normal training grounds? Must be nice to be so far away from the city." There were entirely too many people in Ashfield. No place to think peacefully or really be alone without going into the forest. Out here? She'd almost never see people.

Wasn't that a nice thought.

"A whole scolipede? What a treat that would be." Jolteon's huffs cued her laughter, joining in with the light humor of the chimchar. When the fire came shooting out in a small ember, she jumped slightly for effect. "Wow! Look at that! Next thing you know you'll be shooting a flamethrower. Just be careful of the trees now." She winked at the little monkey, humoring the pokemon. In truth, it wasn't a bad attack to have. Her human would probably appreciate not having to start her own fires at night too.
