PostSubject: A lot of Mountains   Mon Apr 16, 2018 11:14 pm

It was around midday by the time Lennox's travelling companion, Yigo the Sandshrew, had led them to the pass that would take them into the mountains. It hadn't been a small feat getting here; the distance between the marsh and the mountains was not small; doubley so for those with stub legs. He had been wandering pretty much constantly up until this point though, enough that he had grown accustomed to the slight burn that would develop in his legs from time to time. With Yigo there with him to help navigate, he had even been able to curl up and roll a good part of the way; something he hadn't been able to do on his own without getting himself horribly lost. Finally he had gotten to see the mountains climbing over the horizon. He had been looking for them for so long that the vision had started to seem surreal.

Each day that had brought them closer to the mountains had also brought Lennox more frustrations. He didn't like how the mountains loomed over him as they drew closer and closer, casting their shadow over the both of them. He felt taunted once again by something bigger than him; something that saw him as less. They didn't feel inanimate to him; they felt alive in their colossal stature as if they had been put there to taunt him. It made him feel restless, annoyed. Every moment he had to sit there and face the looming giants as they stood in his way caused displeasure and anxiety to bristle down his form. He wanted to shut those mountains up. He wanted to get rock under his feet so that they couldn't look down on him anymore. He fully intended to get to the height of the range, to prove he was bigger than some piles of rock that had size on their side.

Yes, by the time they approached the pass, Lennox was more than ready to climb.

"Is this the place?" he asked the sandshrew. It was mostly a nicety, but he also wanted to be sure. He was eager to cross that threshold and find out what the mountain held for them. "'m glad there's still some daylight out. You weren't kidding when you said it was far." He took in the darkly-tinted rocks in their surroundings, and how indifferent and cold they looked against the mildly cloudy sky. It was about as foreboding as he had expected it to be, which got the excitement pumping throughout his body. He ignored any feeling but the rush of confidence coursing through him.

The passing had been arduous albeit somewhat calm. The mossy environment ceased to appear in their surroundings, feeling the group under their feet tall grass from the forest, lawn from plains, dirt from the base of hills and gravel from the passes between the mountainside. However, the bug type had a much better idea, one that felt much more fun for his partner, a sandshrew by the name of Yigo. They would both roll to their destination instead of simply walking. Why that sudden change was unknown to the ground type but he was not going to complain at such an entertaining mean of transportation.

Rolling forward felt incredibly satisfying. The earth often stuck on Yigo´s back making out of him a small boulder which needed to be crashed upon something resilient before letting the sandshrew out of his shell. 'Inexperience with rollout' he usually claimed to the venipede who had to stop from time to time so that Yigo could recover. Definitely, the highlights of the journey were the downhill sections, in which both of the pokemon could achieve really high speeds. Compared to the marsh, the journey to the mountains had been enjoyable without a doubt, much better than travelling through the marsh and beating travelling alone by a longshot.

Unfortunately, all of that fun was coming to an end, as the road that leads to the passages through the mountains started leading them to the Blacktooth kingdom, their destination. Yigo took some time to rest after such a fun yet tiring journey. Looking back, he could see the forest as nothing more than small buds of leaves, his hand being able to cover it all from his perspective. They´ve gone far...

"Uh?" Lennox managed to snap the ground type out of his thoughts. Yigo checked around, sniffing the pure air in those free mountains. Steam and ash could be smelled from where they were. The columns of smoke and evaporated water should be easy to identify from where they were. "We´re almost there. I believe that we just have this last bit uphill before we reach one of the peaks. From there, it should be even ground" Yigo sat down on the ground, looking at the road ahead of them. He needed a moment to regain stamina which he used to gaze at the clouds, being gently carried away by the pleasant breeze. That motion gave Yigo an idea "Hey, Lennox. Why don´t we make conquering this mountain more... fun? Let´s see who gets to the top first!"

He peered up to where Yigo had gestured and, sure enough, there was a flat pass where the faces of the mountains were fused and wound around each other. That was fine, he guessed. Admittedly, it was a little disappointing to come all this way to take a flat path. The attraction was the mountain, after all. He had been expecting something more along the lines of scaling sheer cliffs and navigating thin outcroppings. He reasoned that he shouldn't complain, though. The ashen rocks didn't seem like they would provide much traction for climbing, admittedly; not to mention there were bound to be all manner of large pokemon calling this place home. He wasn't a slacker, but he wasn't suicidal either. It was probably best not to tempt his ego and risk both his and Yigo's safety. There were bound to be plenty of adversities even on the relatively level road ahead of them. He could accept taking on a more reasonable route during his first time in a foreign land. Besides that, he didn't want to put an excessive burden on Yigo.

The sandshrew surprised him with a friendly challenge. It wasn't unwelcome, in fact, it was far from it. He forgot his gripes immediately as a new burst of enthusiasm bust through him at the prospect of some friendly competition to liven the trail. "Sure; if you think you can keep up," he smirked with confidence. "'m guessing we'll both be rolling. Do you want to start the countdown?"

He paused to think for a moment. He thought back on the fight with the Dratini he had met in the woods. They never had decided on who was the winner there; well, he hadn't. It hadn't exactly decided anything at all because neither of them really agreed what they were deciding (well, the Dratini obviously agreed with himself because he had won). The places where he had been burned tingled with agitation as he thought about it. In light of that, the vagueness of their goal bothered him the slightest bit. He tried to shake it off, reasoning that it shouldn't matter that much in a simple race. He couldn't help but stop to confirm, "Maybe we should go for that bare tree by the path?" He found that, for whatever reason, that little bit of confirmation satisfied that nerve that was twitching in his head. Not that he didn't trust Yigo to be more reasonable than a snake who talked to trees.

All that was left now was to start. The trail had a wave in it here and there, but Lennox was sure he could handle the maneuvers they would require of him well enough. So sure, in fact, that he subconsciously began identifying paths where he could shave off some time; little rocks and bends that he might be able to jump. When Yigo called, he knew he'd be ready.

When Lennox agreed to play a game with Yigo, a broad grin showed immediately on his face "Yaaay!" He shouted before dashing near the bug type. Getting on his hindquarters Yigo scouted for the tree that was set to be the goal of the race. With a nod and a hum with an agreeing tone, Yigo decided to add another bound to the race that they were about to have. Extending his arm and pointing his claw to the ground, he drew a line from with which start "You bet that I´m ready and expect me to roll as fast as I can! Even if the road goes uphill, it´s the fastest way to move on my end. As you suggested, the goal will be that tree and start from here. Your paw and head right behind this line" Yigo gave Lennox an example by getting on all fours, nose barely hovering over the ground and his left front paw right beside it, almost touching the line.

"Are you ready?" Yigo asked, looking at his side to see whether or not Lennox was ready. Yigo observed the road ahead of them. There were a few curves and twists. The road was long and had some cracks. The easiest way of crossing the pass was just running on his fours and being careful about any geopebbles he could stumble upon and stay away from the ledges... but where was the fun in that? He was going to win or, at least, become a worthy opponent to Lennox. His claws dug into the gravel and start readying his body as it curled and curbed, ready to jump into the shape of a ball and start rolling "four, five, three, two, one, go!" he shouted, following his words right away with a small sprint that gave him enough momentum to turn himself into a ball who rolled through the road. His speed was decent even though the ground below him was not the most optimal. It was tiring and somewhat annoying but he could keep up the pace.

Lennox squared up at the starting line, mimicking Yigo's ready stance. "I'm ready when you are," he answered with a nod. He was in his go mode now; his little legs were tensed and he was only holding back for the signal. His heart pumped a bit quicker in anticipation as Yigo started to count down. When the sandshrew got to "go!" and the race started, Lennox launched as hard as he could. His muscles contracted and quickly pulled him into a tight ball for rolling, boosting his speed up past his starting momentum. In this new form, the edges of his plated exoskeleton stuck out and caught the ground, digging into the dirt and propelling him forward.

He didn't have the best vision in this position, but he could see at first that Yigo had gotten a bit of a lead on him in the first stretch. Lennox leaned into the first curve of the road and ripped around it as quickly as he could in an attempt to make up the distance. He kept close on the curves, not even balking when he got a little close to the edge of the road that led to the downward slope of the mountain face. Not dangerous at all. Now that they had been going for a bit, he felt better about his pace and he started to loosen up. He learned the feeling of the silty ground beneath him and how it softly gave way as he pushed through it. He looked for flat rocks that would catch on his body and give him a chance to add to his momentum. He was picking up speed, and even tugging ahead a little to his delight. He couldn't quite take the lead though. With the tree growing closer and closer, he started to look for opportunities to gain just a bit more distance or maybe enough traction to get some speed for that final push. A flat, jagged rock peaking just out of the dirt caught his eye. Yes, he could use that. He rolled towards it, eager to get that final push...

As it turned out, it had not been solid surface. It was a very weak formation that broke apart beneath him, throwing him off balance. He went skittering to the side, holding his eyes shut so they wouldn't get hurt as he went skipping over rocks. He eventually landing about ten feet to the left of where the tree was. He was... pretty dizzy, and a little shocked. Not scared, just... shocked. He wriggled himself up onto his legs and had a look at where he had ended up. He was pretty far off to the side... in what looked like a campsite? There was a smear of old ash on his shell from where he had gone flying through the fire pit. He didn't see anyone around, but there were remnants of a meal nearby that made it look like maybe there was someone still using it.

...Drat! He had lost the race, hadn't he?? He started to scramble up over the little shelter, calling, "That was a slip! I hit a loose patch of dirt, pretty sure someone's messing with the dir over here or something."

[Energy = 1 + 10 (Oran Berry) = 11]

Lennox´s experience with rolling was something unknown to Yigo but, for the sandshrew, rolling was his life. Whenever he was scared, he´d curl into a ball and roll to forget any pain or sadness. Whenever he wanted to laugh, he´d spin and get dizzy and then stumble around until his feet couldn´t hold him anymore. When he felt brave, he´d roll, trying to ram into something tough or riding onto a slope to make a jump. Many of the latter didn´t exactly end up well but, regardless, they were a valuable experience to Yigo. In his spherical shape, Yigo could not see but his other senses amplified. His ears, although they were getting flattened by the ground they were rolling on, could catch the surrounding sound. His skin felt the earth pulse gently, letting Yigo know which patch of dirt was the softest or more packed - which usually was the most traversed and, thus, the correct way forward. Yigo learned to roll before he had learned to walk on his hind legs; it was second nature to him and it must have counted in that race since the only other source of traction was coming from behind him. He could feel Lennox trailing behind him, spinning faster yet less efficiently.

The road had been one easy to traverse if it wasn´t for the volcanic ashen and dark stones that shattered under his hide. Many big rocks turned into dust, gravel or ash from which you could get stuck and were particularly dangerous on the curves. Moreover, those stones that turned into more resilient, solid shards were able to harm the hide of Yigo, so used to the fine and loose sand. Despite all of those issues, he kept onward, making sure to stick to the loose rocks as fast as he could until, finally, he felt tree... his whole back fell the tree upon crashing onto it. He had been so focused that he didn´t even notice that he was already at the goal! His back aching and sending out complaining murmurs, Yigo uncurled with his back planted on the tree´s bark, feet over his head while the latter maintained the body straight thanks to the tree´s support. Still upside down, he looked around. No signs of the bug type. Lennox was neither at the goal nor on the road leading to it from which Yigo could´ve spotted him. "Leeeennox!" He shouted, trying to catch his attention from wherever the venipede might be.

*thump* "Ouch!" A berry had fallen onto Yigo´s head. An Oran Berry had replied instead of Lennox. Yigo looked up again at the bare tree. It looked lifeless and incapable of producing any fruit. Besides, didn´t berries grow on bushes? Not forgetting about the newfound and welcomed berry, Yigo rolled to his side, stood on his fours and lied down by the tree´s side and on the lone patch of grass on which it had planted its roots. Next, his front paws took a hold of the berry, placing it between the two while the ground type nommed on it in small bites, enjoying the fruit. Yup! Definitely the Oran Berry. He really needed that if he was to continue. Now he only needed to wait for Lennox...
