PostSubject: The Beginning Of A New Path   Sun Dec 08, 2013 2:48 am

Her open jacket waved with the wind yet it never dared pull her hood from her head as Rai stood sternly in front of the Luna Mountain Town Gym building. Its leader was said to be that of Granite Saunders who was a woman Rai had often heard about but rarely seen. This being said, Rai knew little to nothing about her on a personal level but clenched her fist with a look of ferocity as if she had found the hiding place of an old rival. It was actually beginning to worry Luke quite a bit since he'd never truly seen her look so angry with so little explanation behind it, yet he refused to say anything. Eventually she'd grow tired of just standing there and would attempt to push open its doors with her fresh wounds still healing beneath soft bandages.

The doors would open into what appeared to be a cave. One should have figured since the Gym was built right into the Mountain. However, there were the tell-tale statues that indicated the place was a gym. The cavernous path went forward several feet before opening up into a large area that was too dark to see from the entrance way. The sound of a waterfall could be heard coming from deep in the gym though.

"Venture forward, if the future is something you seek, regardless of what reason you may hold."

The voice of a woman spoke out through cavern, almost as if speakers were in the walls.

An interesting scene for the sightseeing type to take in, but Rai wasn't here for that. She kept her eyes directed down the path ahead of her while approaching the opening, her demeanor remaining unchanged by the voice of the woman. She'd show her a future worth seeking.

As Rai reached the open area, she would see that she now stood on a cliff. A waterfall cascaded out of a giant stone Aerodactyl Mouth, going far down below to what looked like an underground ocean. To her left would be a mountainous path leading down, still able to clearly see everything. If she looked closely, she would see at the very bottom of the cave, where the underground Ocean was, there was a room set on a floating rafter. The gym leader had to be in there.

The path that lead down into the gym however, had smaller rooms along the path, like checkpoints before she would reach the bottom. Whatever puzzle/test the gym had would most likely take place in those rooms.

There was a brief pause in her movement as Rai stood at the top of the cliff in order to look over her surroundings. A mere moment later she would be down the open path before her, anxious to get to the bottom. She was determined to focus on the objective at hand and nothing else while keeping up a constant pace until reaching the first room. It was then that should and Luke would both enter with thoughts of what was inside.

Entering the room, Rai would be met with a typical scientist lab, much like one of the labs of the Prof. However, there would be a single person here, looking over a tube full of what appeared to be dirt. The person was Male with dark skin and sleek black hair. He wore frameless glasses and held a serious look upon his face. He seemed to be about 22 years old. When he noticed Rai enter, her would raise an eyebrow before sighing and placing the test tube into a small slot holster.

"You must be another gym challenger. Well, let's get this over with, since I'm sure you have some type of fighting, water, or ground type pokemon to deal with us...just like every other trainer out there."

The scientist was extremely unenthusiastic about this. The Luna Mountain Town Gym was extremely underrated, mainly because of the many weaknesses that most rock type pokemon had. Every trainer has exploited them to some extent, leaving the trainers of the gym with very low self-esteem.

"Before we battle, you have to answer a riddle though, as a quirk of this gym. Though they're just as easy..."

He rolled his eyes and pulled out a pokeball.

"Wartortle is to Squirtle as Graveler is to what?"

Her hand tightly clenched the door handle upon seeing the scientist in front of her and not Saunders. She figured something like this would happen, but it pissed her off all the same. His lack of excitement for seeing her didn't matter to her either. All she wanted was to get this over with. But there was a bright side; her pokemon had the chance to stretch their legs.

"Geodude..."

Was all she said and nothing more. Not even wasting her breath on an explanation as she had more important things on her mind. With that said she would take her position as she prepared for the battle that would inevitably take place.

With another sigh, the scientist tossed his pokeball, shaking his head in fatigue. Just as Rai said, out popped a Geodude.

"Ding ding, you're right."

Once again, with no energy.


Geodude (Male) Lv: 20
HP: 52/52

Rai scoffed at the presented pokemon before Luke started to move forward. She wouldn't allow this however and thus would gently pull him back with a pokeball in her hand she thought perfect for the situation. Once activated, Eos would pop out onto the field ready to battle and, to start things off, she would give the first order.

"Eos, attack with Metal Claw."

She said calmly, knowing the risk she was taking with such a match up. Still, Eos needed some more experience and Rai was willing to roll the dice as she ran towards and lunged the Geodude in attempts to strike it down with such a technique.

(Wow...)

"Geodude, Defense Curl!"

The researcher called, however, it would not matter. Even after boosting its defense, Aron would unleash a metal claw with pinpoint accuracy, snagging a critical hit and taking the pokemon down in a single blow. The researcher didn't look surprised and simply shook his head.

"Well that was uneventful..."

He sighed and returned the fainted pokemon. Shrugging, he held his wrist up and transferred some funds into Rai's account, giving her 250 pk for winning.

"You can go now..."

He mumbled before turning to resume his work.

Exp Drop: 600

A successful strike followed by victory! Certainly this would have been enough to bring a smile to any beginning trainer yet Rai stood there holding up a look of apathy unflinchingly. Commentary on the situation was unneeded and thus she wouldn't give it. All that needed to be done now was to return Eos to her pokeball before continuing to the next room with Luke and her spoils.

Money: 150PK=>400PK
Eos: Lv: 24 (13800/15650)=>(14400/15650)

As Rai exited from the first check point, she would see that she was scaling down the cliff side towards the lake like water source in the center of the gym. There was another check point a bit ways down and after that, just a winding road on the face of the cliff that lead to a small boat that would take her to the central room that was floating in the middle of the indoor lake. No doubt that's where the gym leader was now.

The sound of the raging waterfall from the stone Aerodactyl's mouth would be louder than before once she exited from the first room. If she looked closely, it would seem as if the statues eyes were glowing now. But it was only faint.

Continuing onward, Luke's suspicions of his trainer only grew. Something had definitely changed about her and there was no denying it. This would leave him no other choice but to get to the bottom of things, but how? Asking about it would have been an appropriate to go about things though not at a time like this. Perhaps after they left the gym yet he might not even need to wait that long for the answer to come out itself. Only time would tell, one supposed.

Now, leaving the first room, the sounds of the raging water would be acknowledged with only a glance before Rai kept her focus forward. The brief glance would pass right over the faint glow of the statues eyes and not notice it. Luke would be keeping all his attention on Rai as they entered the second checkpoint.

Just like the other check point room, this one would be a lab. However, it was much more colorful, having different types of rocks in vials and bowls. A smell would drift into her nose and let her know it was all candy at that. Some of the smells would ease her mind just a bit, however, a few seconds later would give way to a smell that would make her stomach drop. It smelled like death. It was wafting from a bowl of black rock like candy. One could only imagine what it tasted like, or even what it did when consumed.

"Mwahahaha! Welcome to my lab puny human!"

The voice of a young girl called.

Spoiler:
 

"I'm Koi Koi Negirina. And you're just in time to be my next guinea pig er, I mean, helper! All ya gotta do is eat one of these candies and you can go on!"

The girl didn't even look to be 7 years old yet, and she was a scientist? On top of that, she didn't even really seem to pay attention to Rai. It was more like she were reciting her lines again while continuously working with different chemicals. She had only glanced at Rai two times throughout her little challenge.

Scattered about the room would be different colored candies. There was a bowl of red candy in the shape of diamonds. A bowl of yellow candies in the shape of coins. A bowl of blue candy in the shapes of shattered rocks. And a bowl of black candy simply shaped like gumballs.

Her nose tingled and the welcoming smell enough for her to wiggle slightly as she entered the room. Too soon to trust the scent however as she would be greeted with a more miasmic odor. She coughed a bit before quickly shielding her nose with a part of her clothing. Luke had no other choice but to shake off the smell.

"Yeah whatever, kid. Just pull out your pokemon so we can get this over with."

Rai said after a few breaths through her clothing. She was in no mood to comply with this young girls challenge. Her very presence in this gym was in question. Truly, what was a child like this doing here?

Koi Koi would pause in one of her experiments, holding a test tube with bubbling green liquid in it. She would puff up her cheeks angrily and turn towards Rai.

"Didn't ya hear me you stupid old monkey? Eat one of the candies first! It's part of the gym challenge!"

She would go on to mumble about ignorant moronic people who were barely smart enough to tie their own shoes. Then she would put a drop of some orange liquid into the bubbling green liquid. As soon as the two chemicals touched, the tube exploded and a cloud of black smoke filled the room. A couple of coughs and hand waves later and the room would be cleared, though Koi Koi would have black soot on her face.

"Yay it works!"

She cheered before accidentally tossing the vials behind her and causing another smoky explosion!

"Stupid old monkey..."

Rai repeated to herself in attempts to fathom a response, but she couldn't. Nothing she thought to say would make this encounter go any faster than if she just went along with the child. The only other option with her type involved force and to do that to a child was out of Rai's boundaries. Well, it was for now at least...

She grew skeptical seeing Koi Koi's 'process' going on in front of her and even more once she through them back. Rai quickly covered the rest of her face from the bursting smoke and would wave as much as she could while making her way to one of the bowls. After a few seconds she would find her way to one of the bowls and grab one of the pieces to consume. It just so happened that she had found her way to the bowl of black candy. Chewing on the gumball shaped candy she would speak.

"Are we done here...?"

As soon as Rai's teeth sunk into the black candy, the smell of death would vanish and be replaced with the taste of black cherry. The gum would be the sweetest thing she had ever tasted and would make her mind a bit fuzzy with forced joy. However, it only lasted about ten seconds, and then she would return to normal.

"Death candy, Black Cherry flavor is a success!"

Koi Koi called. When Rai would look around, she would see all of her pokemon on the ground, shaking in pain. Koi Koi's evil smile would reach Rai and then she would point to the door.

"All of your pokemon are at 1 hp. Have fun fighting Granite you stupid old monkey!"

She called before returning to her work.

Sweet indeed, though however sweet it was Koi Koi would see how bitter the situation could turn as a result. With her joy faded away, Rai would turn to see her beloved pokemon afflicted by the seemingly harmless candy. It didn't make sense. Not one bit of it. How could this have possibly been a part of the gyms challenge? Seemed like a real dirty move to Rai. One that didn't sit too well with her.

Digging into her bag, she would pull out the only supplies she had to fix her pokemon as best she could, but it wasn't enough. All she had to give was a Full restore, which went to Luke, and a potion that she would save. She figured she'd return her other pokemon to their pokeballs and get the medical attention elsewhere. But, before that, she had a few things to take care of first.

"So, what was the purpose of doing that?"

She said to Koi Koi in her usual tone of voice though her calmness should not be mistaken for acceptance.

Koi Koi looked at Rai with a bored expression.

"Weren't you just in a hurry? I've got work to do, I don't need a neanderthal tainting me with stupidity. Shoo! Shoo!"

She waved Rai off, not answering her question. Afterward, she would pick up a piece of the black gum and chew it herself, her face flushing red with joy. A dark aura would seep from her ears however and travel down to the pokeballs at her waist. However, the pokeballs had a protective casing and the dark aura dissipated ten seconds later.

"Answer my question, child..."

She spoke once more, tipping over the bowl of black candy in the process. It was a task done with ease in attempts to get a reaction out of the girl before continuing over to the next bowl. She did nothing more, only waited for a response with Luke by her side.

Tipping the black bowl over was a bad idea. Not only did the smell of death fill the room from the candies shattering on the floor, but Koi Koi's eyes narrowed at Rai's tone of voice.

"You have a problem with the way we do things in this gym, then get the hell out you stupid old monkey."

Her voice wasn't bubbly and cheerful anymore. She stood from her seat, being barely half the size of Rai, but standing her full height.

"Just because we are one of the first star gyms doesn't mean you should be cocky enough to walk in here like you have some authority."

With her words, the shattered black candy floated swiftly into the air, forming hundreds of needles positioned around Rai and Luke. In addition, the other candies joined them, making rainbow colored senbon in the air. The red candy reformed next to Koi Koi, forming a hammer three times her size and twice the size of Rai.

"My challenge was for you to choose one of the candies I designed to give status ailments or stat boost. You choose wrong so deal with it. Unless you want me to put you at 1 hp as well."

It was an interesting observation. One that brought a smile only dulled by the stench of broken candy to Rai's face. She wasn't expecting such a reaction from the little girl, but it wasn't something she let break her focus while listening. In fact, it was what she said that almost took care of that. Rai didn't care what star gym this was nor did she care about being viewed as cocky for what she had done. She just didn't like how they ran things and so she sought to change them. Koi Koi's explanation of her challenge only further filled Rai with disgust.

Not feeling the need to justify her own actions, Rai took out an empty pokeball and returned Luke to it. After this there was little more that could be done. The wise thing to do would be to drop the case and move on seeing as how she was clearly outmatched. Still, this did not seem to matter in her decision.

"I find that challenge to be ridiculously unethical and will not stand for it. If you have a problem with it then what's stopping you from waving that weapon of yours?"

Koi Koi held Rai's gaze for a few moments before puffing up her cheeks again.

"Mou, you're making me fall behind on my work! Just go fight the gym leader already, for the love of Arceus!"

She tossed the hammer up where it burst into hundreds of candy pieces before raining down all over the lab. The candy that had formed needles all dropped to the floor too. A few moments later and two robots with brooms for arms emerged from a wall and began to swiftly clean the room. Koi Koi sat back at her desk with her cheeks still puffed as she continued to look over her research materials.

'Why do people like her...plague this region?'

Koi Koi thought to herself sadly.
