[Important inventory: Rainy Orb, Shocker Orb, Allure Seed]
[Energy: 17 - 11 = 6]

Recently, Valen had learned about an exploration organization called the Windrose Scouts and its base in Fallen Leaf Copse. Along with Saturn, the Cubone who had told him about the organization in the first place, Valen had decided to become a member. Especially as Valen was also a member of the Aileron Guild and the Peak Academy, some might have said that it was too much for one little bird - but Valen himself felt confident that he could manage. In fact, almost right after joining, Valen, along with Saturn, had decided to investigate one of the rumours on a Windrose Library bulletin board.

So, someone says "flowers made of frost" are appearing in these woods, huh. Valen thought. Could that really be true? I mean, from what I've heard and read about, this place is basically autumn all the time, so how could there possibly be frost here? Maybe someone mistook white flowers for frost or something - or they're just making things up?

Now, Valen was outside the Windrose Scouts base, but still inside the woods themselves. He looked around. There were, of course, the trees with their beautiful orange and yellow leaves that were everywhere here - but as far as he could tell, no frost, in fact nothing white whatsoever was present. Then he remembered something.

The rumour said they're at the bases of trees and on branches on the ground - and I haven't really looked down yet! So Valen did that. There was a carpet of fallen leaves, and Valen could see some small plants growing as well - including a few flowers. But again, none of these were frosty or even white.

So now, they had to explore some more. At least everything was in the same dungeon as the scout headquarters itself was located in, so Valen hadn't had to travel very far already after deciding to investigate the rumour - one reason he had chosen this one in the first place to start with. But then Valen thought: What if this really is just made up? Then how are we going to prove that there are, indeed, no such flowers? Do we really have to search the whole of Fallen Leaf Copse? Well, we can certainly at least search one part of this place to begin with...

Valen turned to Saturn. "Saturn," he asked, "have you seen anything here now? You know, any frost or anything that looks at all like it?"

As the little Bug pokemon and its seasonal friend trotted up, Saturn was busy rifling through an odd-looking tree that was about his height. Its trunk was long and thin, with a dense bush of leaves at the top. He saw what looked like some kind of berry, although it had a rather tough surface and smelled spicy. Saturn figured he would take the two ripest-looking ones for himself to inspect later.

As he was foraging, the shrill, high-pitched voice of the Ribombee stole his attention. He saw the tiny creature flap its wings, whipping up a sparkling breeze that Valen seemed to... relfect back? Odd, he'd have to ask about that later. The brown deer pokemon came trotting up immediately after, seemingly anxious about the situation at hand. This prompted him to take action, but not before a small orange-and-white bird, followed by a Piplup came onto the scene. The orange bird seemed about as worried as the Deerling, but the Piplup was rather nonchalant and polite. The more this situation progressed, the more puzzled Saturn became. Did something important happen that he missed while checking out that bush? Why do I always do this to myself? WHY AM I SO EASILY DISTRACTED?! In a rather humorous display of dramatic irony, his inner frustration over his short attention-span almost made him fail to notice the Ribombee's wings vibrating at an increasingly alarming frequency, beginning to make the very air itself buzz at headache-inducing levels. Saturn was not having any of this. He let off a particularly forceful Ancient Power in its direction, the rocks rising up in a sort of semicircle and whizzing straight past Valen, all converging on where the Ribombee was.

Due to its small stature, only two of them hit, the rest of them finding their mark in a tree right behind her. The attack itself, despite being super effective, only seemed to excite the Ribombee even further. She stopped mid-attack, as if frozen in place, her face twisted in an expression so saturated with glee that it left the Cubone rather shaken. He'd been in over his head before, that was one thing, but this disgustingly cheerful Ribombee, despite its petite size, actually struck fear into his heart. She was simply too happy.

As the soon-to-be subject of Saturn's nighmares locked eyes with him, her entire body bristled with aggressive energy. The collected pollen on her fur even started to suffuse into the air! With an overly-delighted sing-songy tinge to her voice that sent chills down his spine, she said, "Myyy tuuurrnn!", before abruptly lunging towards Saturn. The resulting impact swept him off of his feet, causing him to drop his bone. The Ribombee gave him no quarter, rapidly punching and kicking into his torso, giggling all the while. Saturn, on the other hand, was desperately trying to pull her off of him, to no avail. "Someone... Please... Help...", he stuttered out between ragged breaths.

Those Oran Berries he bought were sounding really good about now.

A bunch of things were happening at once. There was the appearance of a Fletchling and Piplup on the scene. There was Saturn firing rocks at the Ribombee. And then, the Ribombee seemed to decide to start viciously attacking Saturn instead of Valen.

Not again! Valen thought as he desperately heard Saturn calling for help. "Anyone! Help! A Ribombee's hurting Saturn!" Valen shouted as loud as he could. And then he rushed in, as he had done so many times before in other situations, to use Peck. But he ended up flying past the Ribombee, and his attack landed on the Deerling instead.

"Ow!" cried the Deerling, who hadn't been expecting an attack just then given that Valen and Saturn had been focusing on the Ribombee so far. And then the Ribombee turned towards the Deerling momentarily. The Ribombee brushed her hand over her pollen-covered body, taking some of it and quickly throwing it towards the Deerling. The injury from Valen's Peck on the Deerling seemed to vanish.

What was that? Valen wondered. Looks like a healing move - could be a problem.

As Arietta came upon the scene with the four strangers, she found herself at a bit of a loss. The Deerling seemed to be rather worried, but the Ribombee looked and sounded like they were having the time of their life. Was this an attack or a mutually agreed battle?

The Fletchling didn't have to wonder for much longer as the Ribombee viciously attacked the Cubone, both them and the Pikipek the bug had been fighting earlier calling out for help.

Arie didn't waste any time, dropping the single sign that she still carried as she spread her wings and took flight. Much faster in the air than she had been hopping along the ground and unburdened by the signpost she carried, Arie sped across the impromptu battlefield. The Pikipek's attack missed, instead colliding with the Deerling, but as the Ribombee turned its attention to its companion, Arietta used to distraction to strike.

Cloaking herself in fire, Arie gained another boost of speed and struck the Ribombee with an aerial Flame Charge. It wasn't enough to prevent them from throwing some pollen towards the Deerling and the Pikipek, but it was enough to knock the Ribombee to the ground and hopefully deal a substantial amount of damage.

Watching the fight unfold, Clovis could tell that no one had heeded his ahem. The Cubone attacked the Riombee with some rock move, and despite hitting with some of the projectiles, the Riombee took the attack in stride and went to wail on the Cubone with her fists, landing blow after blow in a flurry of punches and kicks. It'd probably have been an admirable display of martial arts, had it not been for the Cubone's groaning for help between hits and the Riombee's sanguine laughter throughout the whole thing.

From the Pikipek came a cry for help, then an attempt at an attack whereupon the bird rushed to this "Saturn's" aid by attacking the idle Deerling with their beak, missing the Riombee in the process and generally contributing little. Clovis sneered slightly at both the Cubone and the Pikipek. There were two of them and the Deerling wasn't doing anything, how could this little bug be causing them such trouble?

Relenting from her attacks, the Riombee quickly threw some pollen at the Deerling who the Pikipek had just struck, which seemed to alleviate some of her pain. How sweet-- they must have known each other. Perhaps she'd decide to stop bullying the Cubone soon, and use that healing move on him? It'd be a nice way for them to settle things. Twas naught but wishful thinking on Clovis's part, however, as his companion surged forward to join the fight herself. A bit rash, Clovis thought, but guild members tended to have quite touchy senses of urgency. More so than him, anyway.

As Arietta wrapped herself in flames and charged straight into the Riombee, Clovis remained back without any direct attacks of his own. Arietta's flames certainly looked like they hurt, and he didn't want to do anything further while the Riombee was down. He hardly understood the situation, after all. If anything, he found that he respected the Riombee more than the Cubone or Pikipek because she had held her own against the both of them, and supported her friend in a meaningful way with her healing pollen.

Clovis only strolled forwards, looking around at the pokémon surrounding him. He moved off to a few yards from the Riombee and stood still with straight posture, exchanging glances with first the Cubone, then the Pikipek, then the Deerling. To the Cubone, his face portrayed pity for having taken a beating, to the Pikipek, a bit of contempt for his off-target attack, and to the Deerling, confusion and empathy for the complex nature of the scenario. This would all be cleared up soon, hopefully.

[Energy: 0 + 1(new page) =1]

Saturn kept trying to shake the insufferable insect off of him but the Ribombee was giving him no quarter, imparting each strike with a level of force he didn't think would be possible considering her minute size and petite frame. Just when he thought this terrifying adversary was going to do him in, she abruptly stopped, turning toward her Deerling companion. Saturn didn't notice (or even hear) Valen's attempt to help due to the sheer intensity of the Ribombee. Everything about her from her shrill cackling to the overpowering scent of her pollen (not to mention her raw strengh) was an absolute sensory overload. He barely had time to back away from the attacker before seeing a fiery red streak sling its way across his vision, crashing into his merciless assailant with enough force to make a wave of hot, dry air radiate out from all directions at the point of impact. The sound of the Ribombee hitting the ground was music to the battered Cubone's ears. Surely that was enough to wipe that smug grin off her face., he thought.

As it turns out, he was right. The Ribombee sat up from her laying position, looked down at her singed fur, and promptly started bawling her eyes out. "WAAAAAUUUGGH!!! YOU'RE MEAN!" She then flew off into the treetops, away from the group, her wailing echoing through the forest. "Hey, don't just leave me here, you ditz! Ugh, you do this to me EVERY TIME!" The Deerling's exasperated complaints echoed off into the forest, her companion either out of earshot or refusing to respond. She looked back at the group of strangers next to her, reluctant to look any of them in the eye (especially Saturn). "Sorry about all of this, seriously. I know it probably doesn't seem like it, but she has a good heart. She just... gets a bit too enthusiastic when it comes to battling." "Yeah, that's one way to put it...", Saturn interjected, tentatively rubbing his bruised midsection. The Deerling lowered her head to the ground, a look of guilt apparent on her face. "I've been trying to condition her to not be so rough, but she simply never listens to me. Sometimes I wonder why I even bother trying to help her." She looks off into the direction the Ribombee fled, her brow furrowed in frustration. "It's like all she cares about is herself."

At this point, Saturn had finally started to recover from the beating that Ribombee delivered, and was rather interested in what led up to the events that just transpired. "How did you even end up becoming friends with that pokemon, anyway? She doesn't really seem like the type that anyone would want to follow around, considering how aggressive she is. Or is she not always like that?"

The Deerling processed his inquiries, a mildly confused look on her face. "Well, she wouldn't dare attack me, since I'm the main reason she doesn't starve during the colder months, when there aren't as many pollen-producing plants around. Ribombee are very energetic, you see, and require a lot of food balance out all the calories they burn. Most members of her species have the foresight to store clumps of pollen in the form of Pollen Puffs to tide them over, but because she never plans ahead it's up to me to make sure she doesn't starve.", she says through clenched teeth, her disdain apparent in her voice. "As for how we met, well... it's kind of a long story but the gist of it is that I was abandoned by my herd because I was too slow to outrun predators and too weak to adaquately defend myself. I was cold and scared and alone and... I had stored up a lot of food hoping I could bribe my way out of any future encounter. One day I woke up in my den to the sound of her rifling through my food stash. She said she was going to stay with me because she really liked the berries I picked and I wasn't about to stop her, as if I even could. Not even a day later a Usaring tried to take our berries for himself and in response Ribombee threw pollen in his eyes and sent him running off. We've had a mutual agreement of sorts ever since. I provide her with plenty of food and she fends off any unwanted guests. Although, ever since she evolved it's like all she wants to do is fight. She hardly eats or sleeps and..." The Deerling cut herself off. I'm sorry. I really shouldn't be venting all of this to strangers like you. I'm sure you're all very busy. I'll be going now..."

The Deerling turned to leave, worried about where her friend ran off to. "She's probably curled up in a tree somewhere..."

As Valen was trying to fight the Ribombee, the Fletchling suddenly covered himself in flames and flew at the bug Pokemon, knocking her to the ground. Then, to Valen's relief, the Ribombee started crying and fled. So at least she won't bother us anymore, he thought.

After that, the Deerling started talking about her life and how she met the Ribombee to Saturn. Valen could hear what she was saying, but as the Deerling didn't seem to be directly talking to him, but to Saturn instead, Valen looked around. When he looked into the face of the Piplup from before, the gaze of the blue Pokemon seemed to show... contempt?

Why'd that Piplup show that expression to me? Valen wondered. He didn't even do anything besides come here and look! And seriously, he's a bird Pokemon that can't even fly! Does he really think he's superior?

As the Deerling turned to leave, Valen could hear leaves loudly crunching. He turned - along with the Deerling - towards the sound, and saw two large Pokemon walking towards the group. They were Sawsbuck - the evolved form of Deerling. Could they be related somehow?

"What?! It can't be - why are you here?" the Deerling told the Sawsbuck. She sounded both shocked and angry. Why angry? Valen was confused again. Maybe they're enemies or something, not relatives like I thought before?

"We're - we're so sorry -" the Sawsbuck said in unison, but the Deerling cut them off.

"You were my parents, but you both chose to abandon to die. Now you're back, right when I was telling these good Pokemon just what happened to me, and that's all you can say? Get. Out. It goes without saying that you don't want me, so go back to your stupid herd and leave me like you did last time. I have far better company now," the Deerling replied in a scathing tone.

"Please! We didn't want to leave you! We were forced to do so!" one of the Sawsbuck said. This one's voice was high-pitched, so maybe that meant female? But Valen knew that assumptions of this sort could be incorrect. Especially since although he was male, he had a higher-pitched voice himself - and in fact, apparently sounded much like Vesper, another Peak Academy student who was female. Although it was somewhat ironic, though, he decided to keep making the assumption in this case unless there was more proof otherwise.

"Really? Then why didn't you tell me that before? And even more importantly, why didn't you stay with me anyway if you truly loved me?" the Deerling said, still with the same tone of voice, as Valen was thinking.

This time, the other Sawsbuck responded - with a deeper voice - which if the assumptions were correct, meant a male. "We love you, but... it was the whole herd commanding us to leave you. There was no way just the three of us could stand against all of them. It may be hard for you to understand, but if we had tried to do anything - even just tell you we loved you back then - they could have done something even worse, such as have us all put to death right there."

The first Sawsbuck started talking again as well. "Even now, it has not been easy for us, either. There are still many in the herd who worry that there is something wrong with us just because we had you. Especially when the flowers started to be covered in ice - something that should never happen here - there were calls for our exile or worse as bringers of disaster. I just barely managed to convince the others that we could find what was actually causing the frost, and they probably only allowed it because we would be away from the herd for that time."

Wait - so they've seen frost flowers? Valen realized. After waiting so long for this, he was so excited that he wasn't really thinking of whether it was an appropriate time to talk about this, given the seriousness of the matter being discussed already. So he spoke up. "You've seen frost flowers? Where are they? I actually came here with Saturn -" and Valen pointed a wing towards Saturn - "to find them and see if the rumours were true!"

"We can lead you to the flowers," the apparent father of the Deerling replied, "if you will try to help us find their true origin, so we can return to the herd."

Suddenly, the Deerling started talking again. "For some reason, I was listening to you. I thought maybe, somehow, you would actually say something that would help. But obviously not, you still just care about yourself. Even if you can go back to the herd, what about me? I'll still be slow, I'll still be weak, they'll never accept me. You're complaining about your own small problems while ignoring the fact that you abandoned me to die."

"I don't think you're slow or weak," Valen said, "I mean, even with the help of the Ribombee, who's just one Pokemon after all, you survived for so long in a dungeon... I think that you could do just fine now with a whole herd backing you up."

"What is wrong with you?" the Deerling shouted at Valen. "I thought you weren't like them, but now you're suggesting that I go back to the herd that betrayed me?"

Valen wasn't sure what to say now.

(OOC: For once, the assumptions are correct - the one with the higher-pitched voice is the mother (speech color #ff6699) and the one with the lower-pitched voice is the father (speech color #ff33ff) If they speak in unision, the color is #ff6633.)
