The sunlight slipped in through the thick treetops above as me, Jessie, and Meowth walked along a path that I've never been down before. The path was covered with loose light gray cobble stone that I could hear shift in place with every step I took. "Jessie, where are we going exactly?" I asked out of pure curiosity. I mean she was leading us to our destination so who better to ask?
Jessie looked over at me with her dark blue eyes. "It leads towards a river and a cave." She then gave a slight smile as she crossed her arms. "I've heard rumors of rare gems washing up at the rivers end and more rare gems inside that cave. Maybe if we find something than we'll be able to cash them in for a great amount of mony." She seemed happy with her plan and I was as well since I honestly didn't feel like getting shocked halfway to death by that pickachu that we're always after again.
"Seems like a good plan to me Jess." I smield warmly as a I gave my response. Maybe there would be something there even though I know most of out plans to make money in any way always seem to result in failure. I guess the only thing I can do is hope that luck is one our side today.
Meowth looked up at us, "you two do know it's just a rumor right? Knowing out luck it'll be nothing here." He then gave out a long sigh after stating what had just crossed my own mind. Even Meowth knows that we probly won't come up lucky and he doesn't seem to have any amount of hope either.
"Come on Meowth don't be such a downer." I gave a slight chuckle as we reached a large clearing covered in sand. "Oh would you look at that we're here." I looked around the area for a few moments, letting the scenery sink in. Besides light yellow sand there where rocks, a small lake that sat in the center of a clearing with a long winding river connected to it, finally there was the cave which sat at the bottom of a what seemed to cliff.
"Alright you two get searching." Jessie commended while walking towards that cave, determination glinting in her eyes. Meowth said nothing, but instead gave a nod before he began to follow her.
I was about to say 'okay' whenever I caught a glimpse of something out the corner of my eye. I looked over at it and to my surprise I saw a heap of dark gray and crimson red fur huddled up on the ground near the bay of the lake near a few large rocks.
I took a few steps towards it, uncertainty about if this was truly the right thing for me to be doing began to set in the closer I got to it. I mean it didn't looks like anything I've ever seen before but I'm pretty sure it's some kind of Pokemon. But the question is, what kind of Pokemon?
It seemed to be a canine like creature of some sort but it had small little red dragon wings on it's back, a very long and slender tail with a tuff of red fur on top, and large pointed ears. 'What a weird looking creature....'
I slowly placed my hand on it's soaking wet pelt happy to find out that it was still warm and breathing. Now and what do I do with it? Do I wake it up or try and help it? "H- hey, wake up." I shook the creator as I spoke, hoping that it would wake up from it's slumber.
My head was pounding like a drum as I laid there next to the rocks that stood along the lakes shore. Those two houdoom where hopefully gone for now since I didn't need them on my tail. I had to find out why I was turned into whatever I am right now. You see my dear reader, I was a human but I don't remember my human life- well other than being surrounded by this strange multi colored fog and someone saying, "Mindi you need complete a task for me." It was then, when I watched my own pale hand turn into a paw.
Yeah strange I know- I know, but it was after that when I woke up in a cage in the middle of the woods. I heard two people conversing about how they had never seen anything like me before. I didn't know what they where gonna do to me nor did I stick around that long enough to find out. Instead I pushed open the cage since the humans didn't lock it up and I climbed out. Easy right? Well no because than those two just had to get there houndooms after me and then they chased me until I leaped off that cliff into the icy cold water.
And that's the story of how I- Mindi- ended up here on the ground like this. A heap of soaking wet fur and soar paws.
I felt something touch my back but I couldn't force my eyes open in order to see what it was, or so I thought because I surly did the second I heard his all to familiar voice say "H- hey wake up." My head bolted up as I looked at a man wearing a white outfit with the letter R written on his chest in bright red. His green eyes, which seemed familiar to me, looked at me with a tad bit of shock at my sudden outburst. Why does this guy seem so familiar to me even though I have no idea who he is but it seems as if his name might being with the letter 'D'.
Whatever it doesn't matter, he could be a threat to me. I quickly folded my large ears back and showed of my sharp fangs. I just didn't care if he seemed familiar to me, for all I know it could just be my mind playing tricks on me. I forced myself onto my paws and growled, a low threat filled growl. "S- stay back." I spat as I locked eyes with the lavender haired man.
He slowly stood all the way up and took a shaky step back. "I- I'm not going to hurt you." He was frightened it was written all over his face.
I took a step back as well, pain stung in my left hind leg which forced me to close my eyes and let out a whimper of pain. I quickly forced my eyes back open and looked at the man whose face was no longer filled with fear instead it showed of sympathy. "You have a huge gash on your leg." He spoke ever so calmly.
"And!?" I barked out trying to reclaim my threatening presence but I knew that I no longer looked as if I was a threat and well the truth is I'm not. I'm just a small little dog thing with wings that can't even be used to fly because their so small. "I'll be fine..."
The man knelt down on the ground next to me and looked at my hurt leg. "Your in pain." He stated while taking off one of his gloves and tightly wrapping it around the gash on my hind leg leg, and well I just let him since I was already weak and my leg felt better without the air hitting my wound.
"Thanks....." I muttered while looking away. Was he going to do something to me and if so than what?
"No problem." He smield before he asked, "Do you have a name?"
My ears perked back up, he didn't seem as if he was going to hurt me or do something awful to me. I slowly nodded as I spoke almost silently, "My name is Mindi...."
"Well nice to meet you Mindi, my name is James." He spoke ever so cheerfully. Well it seems I was wrong about his name starting with a 'D'. Maybe my mind was just playing tricks on me after all.
"Thank you, James..." Was my response, though it came out kind of dull. I didn't mean for it to come out that way honest. Truth is my mind was pretty scattered with the thoughts of, 'where was I going to go from here?' Or thoughts such as 'what am I going to do now?'
James looked at me and tilted his head slightly. "Hey- uh do you have somewhere to go because if not you can come along with me." Did he know what I was thinking or something?
The offer was nice but should I really just be so trusting of him. Whatever, maybe this human could be of some use to me, well at least until my memory returns to me that is. With a quick nod of my head I said the simple worlds of "okay take me with you."
