"Thank you!" Bennett grins at Voss. "And don't worry, I have a lot of pokemon but we are just one BIG family! I keep them at my own ranch of sorts. Though some are out and about and helping. . . such as with the firefighters or police or with nurses. Or even mail!" He chuckles. Cabella looks up suddenly, and smiles. She absolutely loved going there. All of the pokemon are happy as can be. And at the sight of her father their happiness only seemed to increase.
Cabella then glances outside, and looks at her dad. "I think you should go home. . . to mom. She called me and she was crying dad."
Bennett looks at Cabella, and then over at the door. He smiles lightly and nods. "I suppose I should. Haven't seen your mother in a while. . ." He sighs, frowning for a moment. Then, he is up and grasping Cabella in another bear hug. "I love you."
"Love you, too." Cabella smiles, returning the hug. They separate, and Bennett chuckles, "You're going to turn out to be something great my little rose. I can see that as clear as day."
He places his hand on her head, and then gives her a quick kiss on the forehead. "Just be good." He then turns and heads for the door. Before he walks out, he says to Voss, "Remember to keep that head held high and your dream forever within sights. And never let it out of your view. You've got a lot in you. OH. And DON'T touch my daughter." And then, Bennett Rose is gone.
Cabella takes in a deep breath before looking at Voss, and lightly smiling.
"I already told you." Cabella gives a heavy sigh, her shoulders sagging somewhat. "We're going to have to take the ferry. From here that's about a day away. So we should check into a room here at the inn and then we can get going in the morning." She says, gazing out the window for a moment. The moon would be a full one. Cabella always loved the full moon.
"Do you want me to pay this time? Seeing as you've paid for all our food and stuff so far." Cabella chuckles, rubbing the back of her neck.
"Sounds complicated." Cabella mutters under her breath. She then looks over at Croconaw as it puffs out its chest, and she gives a quiet laugh. She still couldn't believe her Totodile had evolved. Part of her felt. . . sad, though. Yet, she was happy. She just missed the sight of her little Totodile.
When they get to their room, Croconaw makes itself at home on the only couch. Cabella stares at the floor for a moment, wondering which spot would be the best.
Cabella bites her lower lip, and she tries to hold her breath. She gathers the strength to move her foot up and lightly kick Voss back. She sits up, and looks at him, shaking her head. "Not tonight." She says. "I'm sorry but. . ." She looks away. "I'm ready to go further but I will never force anything on you. I'll wait until we are both ready." She smiles. "That's why I've been sleeping away from you. So just go to bed." She sheepishly laughs, grabbing her clothes and getting off the bed.
Cabella just looks at Voss and shakes her head. "I don't trust myself." She says, pulling away. "I'm an honest person Voss. You know this." She huffs, walking over to the couch and trying to push Croconaw off. But he was no longer a tiny Totodile.
Voss just lays down ...he rolls over to see Rioulu in his bed...
"Rioulu" the pokemon says... Voss's face changes...."Nothing buddy your just not who i wanted to go to bed with" he says
"Well goodnight Rioulu" he says
"RI...ou" Rioulu responded
A Few Hours Later
Voss wakes up ...he has a feeling... and looks out the window and notices the boy on the Salamence....
He didn't want to wake Cabella....He grabs his pokeball and throws it out the window before jumping out as the boy notices the light then flying before him is a Honchkrow with Voss on top of iilit.
"WHAT ARE YOU DOING HERE" he says angrily
(Boy) "My... my... thats quite the large Honchkrow you have there.....Salamence Flamethrower" he says
The two attacks collide in the middle and push both trainers back but they are still atop their pokemon....
"It won't be as easy as the last time" voss says
(Boy) "Really surprising considering my dad took care of you guys quite easily...even the great Bennet Rose" he says
Voss is shocked..."Ferroh is your father"
(Boy)"Ding..ding...ding... and we had it all wrong we want the girl Cabella... we've been watching her she is linked to one of the three great powerful Pokemon...Nebusteria... the most powerful actually...so we'll be taking her" he says
Voss gets angry...."HONCHKROW....NIGHTSLASH" he says as Honchkrow's wings glow purple it comes real close to hitting Salamence with the attack but it barely slips out the way...but the two get close enough to exchange glares....
"OVER MY DEAD BODY YOU ASSHOLES WILL TOUCH CABELLA" he says
(Boy)"HA you'll see ....you still have some time we're just waiting for the link to grow so if i was you i'd fuck the bitch while i still could" he says
Voss looses it..."What did you call her" he says as even Honchkrow is mad and moves forward to attack Salamence...."Once close enough Voss leaps off Honchcrow and punches the boy off Salamence... and they both fall to the ground.
"WHY YOU" the boy says as he gets up and kicks Voss in the face... then the stomach.... Voss coughs up a little blood
The boy goes to punch Voss again but he catches his fist then punches him in the stomach...Voss then punches him in the face twice causing his nose to bleed before kicking him in the chest.....sending him a few feet away tumbling....
The boy gets up as Voss runs after him to continue the attack...."SALAMENCE" he says as Salamence prepared a hyperbeam to fire at Voss
HonchKrow see's this and dives down...trying to get to Voss in time......it gets there to take the blast..."KRROOOOWWWWW" it screams being blasted into a tree...."HONCHROW" he screams as he goes to his pokemon.
Salamence picks up its trainer... then breaths out a smokescreen.....
"HAHAHA....see you around" the boy says as Voss returned Honchkrow and saw theboy leave
Cabella hadn't even been asleep. She had been pretending. Sleep was. . . impossible. She just lays on floor beside the couch, as she couldn't move Croconaw. The pokemon was definitely as stubborn as she is. She had heard Voss leave, and thought about following. But, she didn't. She knew he needed space. And every now and then she did, too. Nothing wrong with that.
She sits up, and looks at where a television would typically be in her line of sights. But, there is none. Not in this room. She gives a quiet sigh, closing her eyes for a moment. But, only to catch a glimpse of something. Nebusteria. She quickly opens her eyes and shakes her head. "Don't go back there Cabella." She scolds herself. Yet, a part of her really wanted to. What if. . . she doesn't fight it? What if she just lets it take her?
"No." Cabella mutters to herself, giving another shake of her head. She sighs, tucking her knees to her chest and letting her head fall back onto the empty couch cushion as she sits on the floor. "At least not yet."
Cabella is instantly on her feet at the sight of Voss, and she opens her mouth to scream at him. But, instead, her hands ball up into tight fists and she holds back tears. This was because of her. And this is the way things would continue to be, because of her. She was fine with being the one who is attacked. But when he attacks Voss. . .
She clenches her teeth together and closes her eyes, starting to glow somewhat. "I'm going to kill him." She whispers, beginning to shake. "I'm going to kill him." She repeats, louder. And the purple aura around her grows stronger. "I'm going to kill him!"
"I ATTACKED HIM CABELLA" he says raising his voice to counter hers. "I got some hits in myself... its ok I just dropped Honchkrow off at the pokemon center... its ok.. you using that weird aura and power is why they want you now... so stop it now" he says to her now
Cabella slowly opens her eyes to look at Voss, and she frowns. But, the awakened Croconaw is relieved to see that she was no longer glowing. She takes in an uneven breath, nodding. She then makes her way over to Voss and grabs his face. She tilts his head slightly to get a better look at the black eye. "Look at you. . ." She frowns. "Let's get you cleaned up. Okay?"
"Well then we'll find you a damn dragon, if anything you could have asked my dad for one. . . he likes to give pokemon to those he trusts. And he clearly trusts you if he didn't kill you." Cabella lightly chuckles as she finishes cleaning the blood from Voss' face. She had removed his shirt and was letting it soak. She looks at him and gives another sigh, "Now to take care of that eye. . ."
"I know, I know. To both of those statements." Cabella chuckles as she manages to find a pack of ice in the miniature fridge. But as she places it against his black eye, the ice pack glows purple. Startled, Cabella drops it, and takes a quick step back. She looks at Voss and gasps. His black eye. It was gone. "Shit. No. No no no. I do not accept this." She shakes her head repeatedly.
"Crooooo." Croconaw says in awe, eyes wide and mouth open.
"No!" Cabella gives another quick shake of her head. "This isn't even me. This is that damn Nebusteria!" She tries not to scream. "He's the reason they are after me. A-and I don't even know what he wants. He says he needs me. But that's IT." It was clear that Cabella had reached a certain point. "And because of him I can't sleep or anything!" She starts to pace around the room. "And now he's going to be the reason we will all one day end up dead!" She starts to hyperventilate. "I don't even know why he picked me!? I have no clue what's going on and when I ask for answers I get NOTHING!"
"Well the kid says Nebusteria is the strongest of 3 great powers...so what we know is that legendary pokemon have a certain element that that they embody like how my father wanted to use Dialga and Palkia to reshape space and time. ...so figure out what Nebusteria controls so we know what the Aeon Hunters seek to control.
Then we find the other two pokemon hopefully the Aeon Hunters haven't found them...call your dad maybe he knows about the other pokemon or what nebusteria can do" he says
"There's no way I can call him tonight. I'll have to in the morning." Cabella sighs as she makes her way over to the couch and sits beside Croconaw. Her pokemon is quick to give her a hug, hoping that she would feel better. He didn't like it when Cabella was upset or distressed. She lightly smiles at her pokemon. "I'm okay. . ." She gives an attempt of a laugh. With a sigh she looks at Voss, "This time when you go to bed. . . actually sleep instead of wandering out. I care about you so much Voss. When you returned all bloody and what not. . . I seriously wanted to tear that boy to shreds for what he had done. . . Voss. I love you." She looks at him, the words having spilled out smoothly. Croconaw gives a low muttering growl.
Cabella lays down on the couch and stares up at the ceiling, with Croconaw curled up beside her and snoring away.
Cabella had just gotten off the phone with her father. He had explained everything to her. And it was actually quite a bit for her to take in. She is up and about, getting everything ready for them to continue their journey. Croconaw jumps around the room, and then onto the bed to wake Voss up.
Cabella mutters something under her breath, and she looks at Voss, giving him a slight glare. She slings her bag onto her back and shrugs, "I'll let you know when. . ." She glances up at the ceiling for a moment, thinking. "When the time is right." She gives another shrug before leaving the room with Croconaw trailing at her side.
Cabella looks at Voss with an arched brow. Croconaw looks at her, head tilted somewhat. She shakes her head and continues to walk, "We'll pass." She gives yet another shrug. Croconaw stares at Cabella's back for a moment, a bit upset that he could no longer ride on her back. Now Croconaw has to walk. And it was clear that neither of them were in the mood for a battle. Cabella was exhausted. She needed sleep. This was either three or four days without sleep. . . she had lost track. She actually felt dead. And Croconaw was too busy trying to watch if Cabella was going to fall over any time soon.
Voss couldn't take it anymore
"Duskull...use hypnosis" he says as the pokemon comes out and uses hypnosis on Cabella. ..she was no use exhausted the only way to get through this was to delve into it...he thought
