The Flame of Resolve - Part 2"It'll be okay, Ryoshi. I'll be right here with you."
As Amy gently grasped the Mawile's hand and hugged him while helping him up the mountain through the frigid air, she knew that it would take some time and effort to help Ryoshi get over his fear of fire to the point where he'd allow a fireplace to be built in their house.
After he had told the story of why he was afraid of fire to her, there were several times when she wished she could have just gone back in time and punched out that stupid Magmortar before he even ran into Ryoshi and tried to burn him alive, that jerk. But what was done was done, and if there was any hope left, it would be that she would still be able to fix the mess that Magmortar made with her husband.
Though getting over a fear certainly wouldn't be an easy feat, as she herself knew that it took her forever to get over a debilitating fear of Pokémon with sharp, pointy stingers back when she was 12 (and even now, she'd still get nervous around guys like Ne
We're All With YouRyoshi woke up slowly with the morning sunlight. The Mawile sat up gently so as to not wake his wife who was sleeping on the other side of bed and stretched. Another day of patrols around the kingdom...
He got up and sleepily put on his gear, although all the while keeping a suspicious eye on the fireplace Amy had convinced him to let it be installed. He wasn't sure he'd ever be completely over the whole fire thing, but at least it was warm in here now.
With all his clothing on and his sword strapped to his back, he gingerly cracked the door open and was greeted by a harsh flurry of bone-chilling air and snow. He quickly closed the door again and shivered. Even with the sweater and toboggan Amy knitted him, today was way too cold. With a grunt, he started throwing off all his gear again. He could sacrifice one more day of patrol work if it meant he could stay with his wife in warmth today.
With one more nearly-silent grunt, Ryoshi crawled back into bed and wrapped his arms around the s
The Flame of Resolve - Part 1"Come visit us again anytime, Amy!"
"Yeah, see ya!"
And with that, the door closed as the snowsuited Jigglypuff's sisters left from dropping her off at her house.
Her much-colder-than-the-teepee-with-a-fireplace-in-the-middle house, for that matter.
Sometimes, Amy wasn't sure whether to be happy or disappointed at coming back to this house. Sure, it was Ryoshi's house—her HUSBAND'S house—but now that she thought about it, it was pretty bizarre how it never had fire or anything really to keep it warm during the final, coldest month of the year, especially compared to the teepees that her tribe had set up. Every single one of them had fires in them!
She hadn't really noticed it at first since she was so excited to finally be living with Ryoshi after their marriage after a month ago, but now that it was getting colder and that there was still no sign of a fire...wait. She then remembered how just the previous summer, there was a huge bonfire, and that Ryoshi stayed far away fr
C-quel Chapter 1Chapter 1: Back for One More Case
"You can run, but you cannot hide from Mr. X, foolish children!"
The voice boomed through the alleyway with what felt like enough force to rattle the very ground itself. Said children, a group of three Pokemon, ran with all their might, for their very lives were at stake. Their breathing was heavy and slightly labored, but they didn't dare stop.
"You can't catch us ya big meanie!" The younger-looking of the two Chikorita shouted back over his shoulder.
The older, golden-brown Chikorita glared at him. "Don't shout! He'll find us!"
"Help! HELP!" The Petilil, who seemed to be the youngest screamed.
The dark voice only cackled in response to the children's screams. "I'm going to catch you, you silly kids! And when I do, I'm going to-"
The three small Pokemon halted in their tracks, and so too did the much older Bayleef that had been chasing them.
"I told you not to run in the house!" The Lilligant huffed. "P

"We've got it now!"
"W-Wait, what's it doing?"
"Crud! Get back, get back!"
"-ey, are you ok? Can you hear me? Are you alright?"
The barely conscious boy could hear the voice calling out, smooth and gentle like a young girls, but he was unable to answer. It was like his brain was on, but not his body... he couldn't manage to move any of his limbs, utter a single sound, or even pry open his eyelids.
"Ohhh, this is not good!" The voice cried. "I'd better get help!"
The boy lay there and listened as what he could only assume was her footsteps ran off. He was left to lie helplessly by himself. His entire body ached like he had been attacked, but... He couldn't remember why. Actually, he couldn't seem to remember anything before waking up. But... Why not..?
As he laid, he began to hear the sound of waves crashing against a beach. "The sea..? I don't think I was near any water before..."
Then, the footsteps ret
