Team Shining Leaf: Twisty Dungeon Trip
I woke up early today, must be something exciting going on I could safely assume as I washed my face as I got ready to move on to Juicy Mix, Fun's parlor not far from the guild issue housing that is. I left a note before leaving, I just hope she could make it to the guild while I'm gone.
I took my time enjoying the walk to the parlor, as I happened to be stumbling upon Team Whiteout "umm... kinda wondering, what's with everyone rushing for?" I asked him when the familiar vaporeon popped from on top of him with a smile.
She tapped her chin for a moment then remembered "there's gonna be a dungeon briefing~ better hurry up" she chirped as they continued their journey to the guild as I waved them goodbye before going back to my track. I came to Fun's parlor to be greeted with some jazz and the usual greetings from him.
He has my pancake ready and my favourite juice for the day "so... I heard today is a big day for your team" he nudged me while chopping the berries with his psychic ability from that shard thing on his scarf "of course it is, anyway, I'm so stocked at how there's a number of team coming by which I hopefully supplied them enough berries for the trip" he chirped as he went in chattering about the joy of getting some teams to his parlor. I could see the familiar drowzee and hoothoot back from the frosty festivities, Illusia and Athena respectively apparently discussing about chemical properties of some traps around the dungeon while enjoying a bowl of berries. I slowly ate up my breakfast as the bell rang, indicating another customer coming in "anyway... Via has a few words with ya but... take your time with your breakfast, no rush" he said as he jumped off from behind the counter to take the customer's order.
His customer is an explorer team, Team Wishlings that consists of a skorupi with a wish vest and a castform with a wish headband. I jumped down from my seat as I head to the door leading to the greenhouse with Via currently harvesting some berries "there you are, all by yourself I see" she acknowledged my presence as she sat down while her psychic does the work "listen closely cause this what adventuring is all about" she told me as I took out my notebook and pencil from my bushy tail "right then, when going on an adventure, always stick together !" She gave that lil emphasis on the 'stick together' part then she stood up "if you ever have to split, split within the area and don't stray too far" she continued as my writing tries to catch up with her "finally, use the surrounding to good use but after hearing about from this eevee twins that is, to not fully destroy the area" she ended as the eevee twins sounded so familiar oh that's right, Team Cookies 'n Creme I thought to myself as I closed the notebook and stored them in my tail.
I thanked her as I was about to leave, she levitated over a good amount of berries. She smiled at me as I made my way back to the parlor area as I'm bring pounced by a shinx "Mr Stormy!" She spoke happily as I lifted her off from me "whatca doin?" She asked me as I lifted her onto my back.
I made exited the parlor "I'm getting ready for a dungeon adventure" I answered her briefly as I could feel her cute lil paws kneading my back in attempt to obscure my sight of the road ahead.
Her tail wagged about, softly slapping my neck in the process "daddy brings me all the time too" she replied innocently when the smell of cooking muffins wafted the area which filled me with delight until something wrapped my paws. I yelp in surprise as I was dragged into the shop "Uncle Sizzle!" She snapped playfully as she ran towards the source of the rope.
I dangled in front of the quilava as he untied me "right then, I have to say, I'm quite happy to hear for you to head into a dungeon" he complimented me as he lifts up Anna "do remember that dungeons has no specific layout, they shift about" he reminded me as I took note of things "if you want, there's books on disarming traps and I have their exercise book to test you out" he said with a grin as I take a look at the book, it does live up to my expectations "and remember, which I assume you knew it all along" he said as he finished up the toast in his paws.
Then I approached the counter "oh, Firestorm, pleasant to see you" said Autumn softly as she went to the back room and came back with a paper bag "something extra for your adventure" she stated as I accepted the bag when suddenly something starts to yank it away as I counter the pull.
I pulled hard with my psyshock to be seeing Pepper being dragged along "Pepper! No! Let it go" the voice demanded as the psychic pull from him is being released "you know we already have one similar to his" she pointed as an audible whine can be heard from him as Flora approached me "sorry bout Pepper, you know how he is, right?" She told me as I nodded in agreement as I followed them to their seat.
She kinda blushed at me for being together "so, a bit excited for the dungeon?" I started off as she hid her blush with her tail "I-I mean, the place is quite something alright" I stammered as she giggles at me.
She picked up a berry and passed it over to me "I may be scared of heights, but I am very determined of showing my commitment to the guild" she said with pride as I ate up the berry she gave "anyway, talk to you later, we need to rush" she jumped on Pepper's back and he whined again "no time to waste Peppy, I might just promise to have more time to spend with you cooking up more delicious treat when everything's over" she tried to cheer up the arcanine as he nodded joyfully as they got a move on.
I sighed at the sight of them leaving as Summer approached my table "ah, the sweet lil girl and her buddy" she spoke as it startled me a lil "anyway, I just wanna wish you a safe journey to the dungeon and don't forget to tell us all the great adventures you had" she reminded me before going off to a table with a notebook in her paws taking orders of the bergmite with a black shawl and the Klink sitting there Team Bitter Cold, there's somebody the hunters need to escort, wish I knew more I huffed as I heard laughter from behind me Soul the sableye from Team Dark Glamour, what could he be up to this time as I turned to see poor Autumn trying to get his orders straight as I shook my head before going back to see Sizzle.
I talked to Sizzle about the exercise book as he lend it to me "take me with you!" Anna jumped onto my back as I fell down from her impact "sorry~" her innocent like voice made me accept every sort of apology from her. I head out the cafe and navigate my way to the local library "aww, library are no fun" she pouted as I entered the library while ignoring her whining.
I got around the dungeon section "library is a fun place, daddy and mommy sure went to this place alot" I tried to convince her as she rolled on my back with a soft grumble "you better grumble now grumpy face cause you might need to use this place in the future" I continued to tease her as she continues to grumble more as I giggled softly. I got a nice place by the window, the sunlight brightens the area just like it's being potrayed in romance novel as I made Anna comfortable "say, why don't you go find a book? A lil reading leads to a brighter future" I told her as she first looked away but when I mentioned about 'bright future', she got up and scurries into the aisle.
A familiar giggle can be heard as the shiny eevee approached me with a smile "pleasant surprise meeting you here Stormy" she complimented me as she took her seat with a few books wrapped in her Iron Tail "traps are always something interesting and curiosity inducing topic too" she spoke as she flipped about the pages as I gulped down that nervous build up.
I shook my head then gave her an awkward smile "you do know I'm one curious guy, right" I told her as I opened the exercise book to test my skills "and also, I think this might just come in handy for you" I added as I levitated a copy of my findings about Nevermeltice "I may be in the explorers but let's just say, I have the smartness in this sort of things that is" I continued my work as I can hear the sound of somebody running towards us.
Anna came back after finding a cute lil book adventuring I wonder if she has been taught to read yet I wondered as I levitated her up on the table cause of her size which I'm not goin to complain about. I think I finished up alot of exercises on trap diffusion "I think I have to go now, Glitter might just be annoyed for not showing up on time" I told her as I made my way out with Anna until I stumble upon a lock picking book on second thought, I might just stick around a bit longer since I know somebody with Iron Tail I smirk at the thought as I took the book and got into my study mood as I took notes as fast as I could before Glitter comes by. I was about to finish up my notes when somebody bit my tail "Glitter! You know this is a library!" I snapped as she giggled at me mischievously that I brushed my tail from the bite "anyway, I've made notes for you to lock pick your way through the dungeon doors" I shoved the notes to her face as she smacked me with her tail. I somehow managed to guide her into the lock picking business "let me see, you could just hit the lock with the Iron Tail but that could warn the rest so lock picking is the way also, if your claws can fit the lock, that could do or maybe if the Iron Tail could fit the key hole then use that instead" I told her as what seemed like a somewhat familiar topic is being discussed across the table.
The spewpa rolled about the shiny sableye's book "come on Alexander, we're losing all the adventure!" she whined for being stuck with him in the library as he lowered the book "quiet now, this is a library plus, adventure needs thorough and upmost preparation to be able to traverse the dungeon like a breeze" he convinced her as soft grumpy like grumbles can be heard a bit.
I went to the librarian to help manage Anna's book and then exited the library when I felt like somebody scooped both of us up "you want a ride?" The arcanine asked with a jolly tone as he placed both of us on his back "back to the cafe! Last call for muffins" he chanted all the way to the cafe as all I could do is giggle at his passion for pastries. The cafe is quite far from the library so the only way to go there is through the market place. The market is packed with goodies and supply especially the dungeon expedition to Geoda if I'm not mistaken from what Flora told me not long ago.
The view from Pepper sure is nice as my ears caught something "I could've sworn we have alot of berries back home" said a riolu with light blue eyes sporting a pair of pink gloves to the other riolu with blue eyes sporting a pair of aqua colored gloves "can't simply blame somebody for being hungry" he replied with a shrug as the hearing range went out. Then a zangoose with a zigzagoon on his shoulder continuously chanted 'advwenture' throughout their walk around the market Team Lyrelight and Team Bluestar respectively, always be ready for everything I thought to myself with a smile as we finally reached the cafe. Pepper gave way to a ninjask with a notebook and a shedinja could have sworn those are interviewers just by the looks of them I thought to myself as I tried to not accuse myself for not recognising them. Anna then jumped off Pepper to be meeting back with her parents as we head to the dungeon entrance.
The dungeon entrance has a large number of teams murmuring about the dungeon layout, some got enthusiastic to enter and some just kept calm for whatever the dungeon will throw "oh the joy!" said Flora joyfully while giving Pepper's neck a hug then jumped down from him as she took a deep breath "adventure awaits us!" She announced then jumped back onto Pepper and got closer to me " and... for the comfy room " she whispered as Glitter and I jumped down from Pepper as we waved goodbye. Then I gave a nervous look about the dungeon ahead of us as Glitter smacks me again.
She got behind me and began shoving me into the dungeon as I tried to resist "come on Stormy~ you don't want to disappoint your Flora, eh" she teased me as I grumbled in the midst of entering the dungeon entrance "see, what else could go wroooooooong!!" She screamed as I managed a psychic pull on one of her flailing arm "o-ok, guess it's b-best t-to stay together and cooperate" she stuttered due to the fall as she clinged onto me "it's dark in here" she commented as she instinctly used Flash that brightens up the area "holes... holes, everywhere" she let go of me as she begins to secure planks over the holes of the room as I went to help along securing holes.
Suddenly I hear somebody approaching "I smell with my tiny nose, some unwanted guest" the voice said as I pulled Glitter into a shallow hole "you can't hide from me, my nose is like, the strongest" the voice added as I peeped out to see a barboach soldier with a... plunger? I gave a hearty laugh when suddenly, something sucked my head "hah! Found you lil rascal!" He snapped as I struggled about then once I'm free from the grip, I charged at the soldier into a hole nearby "if you know what's good for you, then you won't run" the soldier spoke angrily as I walked aimlessly around the area.
I bumped alot, the plunger obstructs my view and I'm now feeling silly of doing so "oi! Get over here and get this plunger out" I called out as I stopped moving as I felt some tugging going on "I think it's almost out" I said as the plunger came off with a loud pop and Glitter tumbled towards a hole.
I quickly got on my paws to chase her down only to have failed to do so "Glitter!!" I called out as she then came flying out with a burning tail "gah! Fire! Fire!" She screamed as she ran in circles as I caught her with my psyshock "don't just stand there! Put it out!" She demanded as I quickly extinguish the fire with some of the dirt on the ground as she then groaned in pain.
Placing her down, I searched for a lum berry for her to chew on "argh, the burn" she winced as I immediately stuffed the berry into her mouth "you know, you could have warn me" she complained as she sat by a corner of the room as I continued to cover up the holes with lil stones found lying around the room except for those with traps.
I gestured Glitter to come by as she approached me with a grumpy face, still not enjoying the pain but at least the lum berry is doing its job "alright Glitter, I need you to lower me down, I've got the rope secured and I need you to bring me down slowly cause there's a trap here" I explained the situation as she nodded then bit the rope. I approached the hole and began to disarm it, slowly taking out one of the trigger of the sparkler then carefully emptied the bottle of flammable liquid and finally tugged the rope as a signal to pull me up. I gave a sigh of relief as Glitter fills up the hole "man... that trap was something" I told her as she simply nodded in agreement as she support me up "right... back to adventure" I got up to my feet as I continued to fill up the holes with the help of Psyshock then remembered something.
The barboach that I pushed him into the hole "you! Get me out this hole at once!" He demanded as I levitated the poor barboach and once he emerged from the hole, I played my apricorn ocarina "such music... mu...ch soothing..." his voice starts to go softer the more I played and then, snoring. I settled the barboach down in one of those rock formation and covered the formation with larger rocks. Then we ventured deep into the room, the intricate hallway of the said room is as if we could be walking in circles if we took a wrong turn.
Finally we came to a number of doors "alright then, let me see..." I squinted my eyes while tapping my forehead eenie meenie mynie moe, catch a skitty by its flow, run around the mistletoe, got too dizzy fall too close to a-box-filled-with-scones I sang that lil nersery rhyme as my paw points to one of the door into the beat of the nursery rhyme. Then, it came to the wooden door with a lock on it "hah! I knew my first choice was a locked door" I exclaimed as I gave Glitter the notes as I watched her claws fit the key hole. I guided her slowly since my handwriting is a mess and only those talented can understand a messy handwriting "alright, be sure those pins are being pushed correctly" I told her as she did as being told to then a sound is made causing the padlock of the door to 'burst' open. I peeped through the door to be seeing everything to be slightly tilted "coast is clear for now!" I called out as I entered the room but something felt wrong as my tail felt what seemed to be like an odd protrusion.
Glitter tapped me then pointed at the odd protrusion "trap" she squeaked as I slowly got up as to not set up the trap then tapped me again, luckily we're behind a seemingly convenient placed rock "fat barboach" she squeaked again as I shut her mouth from making any noise.
I looked around " don't say that! You know what might happen if they find us! " I whispered angrily as I began to disarm the trap, slowly opening the cap of the button when suddenly the room shakes as I punched a hole in the rock to hold on.
The squelching noise that came from the other side of the rock seemed to me like a very fat barboach after a big gulp of a barrel full of berries "ugh... why did King Wussy Whiskey Montgeomery Mudsuckery Sedimus Munge the fourth, his grace, bring me here... I have a few more barrels full of berry-" the barboach paused as he took a deep breath "- all to myself" he snickered as I could here a rolling squelch "to finish" hearing a pat on the barrel as I could hear it beginning to tip about then stopped. I had a sick look on my face for thinking of being under that pile of lard as I continued to disarm the trap when a loud clicking sound is being made "who is it now! You will never take my stash of berry cause it's mine!" He yelled as Glitter steps out- I failed miserably for preventing her from doing so "you! You wanna steal my berries!" He accused her as I peeped out to be seeing him hugging his barrels "what do you want!" He demanded as Glitter pulled out a loaf of bread as the fat barboach gave a puzzled look "bread... ok...?" he mummbled as he took the bread and then looked at it aimlessly.
Glitter then proceeds to take the bread and made a berry sandwich using our berry supply as I simply groaned at her action nice going Glitter! You just wasted that I angrily thought about it as a hearty laugh followed by audible chewing "there, see, a better way to enjoy that barrel full of berries" she concluded as the fat barboach gave some of his berries and... a key to a door maybe in exchange "aww, you're too kind" she complimented him before coming back to me with a smile "see, a lil help won't hurt" she teased me as she flicked her tongue at me as I looked away with a grumble.
We approached the door, both are locked as I tried the door in front but it didn't fit "ugh... they even labelled it!" I snapped as I went to the door on the right as I could hear voices from the other side. The locks open and as I entered the room, Team Emerald Bloom, surprise seeing them again.
I could see a barboach stuffed in a bucket "Flora!" I voiced my joy to be seeing her again as she turned with a smile "so... whatcha doin?" I looked over her shoulder to see something blue floating in a spot as she carefully scooped the said object.
She placed the object into her pack then jumped onto Pepper's back "apparently these could be either dusts or spores from a plant" she postulated while writing it down in her notes "I'm off to find more info about this dungeon and their wonders" she boasted as she points to the door behind us as I simply blushed when she left the room. I looked about the room, nothing much to explore as I head to the door not far from us as we opened the door, something felt unusually uneasy.
The area sure has some narrow paths and some are also blocked off "G-Glitter, t-this room is c-creeping me out" I fumbled as I felt like sudden paranoia just kicked in as I used Power-up Punch to widen the path in front of me "seriously Glitter!" I quickly make the path wide enough for any construction workers to walk through when I turn around, Glitter is nowhere to be seen as I bumped something gooey that it made me used Flamethrower at the thing.
The thing turned out to be a barboach sporting a bucket, frantically squirming with a burning tail "PUT IT OUT!! I AM ON FIRE!!" The barboach blurted as it stormed out the room as I too ran to find Glitter when I my head collided with a wall. Everything turned blurry that all I could hear is the sound of a flowing stream.
I tried to wake up but it's so comfortable being on this plushie that it simply drifts me to sleep. I woke up with a shock that it made jump into the stream "gah! Help!" I called out for help as I saw Glitter rushed towards me with a plank. I bit the plank as she hauled me out the water, taking deep breaths from the adrenaline rush "no... more... shocking" I panted as she looked away gloomily, I got up to place a paw on her shoulder with effort "don't worry, you're still my favourite shocker" I cheered her up as I was interrupted by her constant licks. I stood up and looked at the stream, it does lead somewhere but better not deviate from the given objective as I levitated a plank, nailing down the planks together while Glitter assist me in laying the makeshift bridge across the stream "hopefully this makeshift bridge won't break" I hoped as I got across slowly when a squirt of water came out of nowhere that it made me hugged the bridge.
I looked around in order to find that lil bugger as my eyes are locked on to a barboach, a bit skinny and look so... ordinary "h-halt" he fumbled, looking scared "y-you sh-sh-should n-n-not be here" he stuttured as I got up and levitated the poor thing out the water "please, I mean no harm" he pleaded as I placed him down and offered him a muffin "r-really? M-much appreciated" he went off to the other side of the bridge and then an ice beam suddenly being emitted as the end is being secured with ice. I quickly rushed to the other side and thanked the poor servant as I approached the meatroot.
I pulled it out with ease, I gotta credit my use of Power-up Punch for this effortless work in pulling out the meatroot "you stay out of trouble, especially with that muffin" I adviced the barboach before running back to the other side as I store them in Glitter'a bag to only be grumbling at my action "well... mine is full of supply" I pointed out as we went out the same door and surprisingly the place isn't as paranoid as I expected. I made my step to be feeling the floor is wet! I quickly jumped on Glitter's back then used light screen as a sort of levitated platform from the ground as I watch a buizel and a shinx leaving the room clean. I was about to stop to ask for direction only to have left for another room "welp... that escalated quick" I sighed as we proceed in the direction they went. I looked around for them but my eyes aren't playing tricks, surely they walk pass that doorway "is it just me or this room is sweltering hot" I pointed out as we explored the room with Glitter on my back soon, after few ordeals around, I have to carry her around on a light screen. Suddenly, as I was enticed in exploring, something felt off for the moment "hey Glitter, this area has no floor, how odd" I spoke with a raised eyebrow then looked down as I frantically tried to grab the edge of the hole.
I began to fall when somebody bit my tail "not my tail!" I yelled as I went on spewing flamethrower everywhere when a fimiliar figure came into sight, the panting of the arcanine and that made me give an awkward smile "hey... how's it goin there buddy, doing good? Yeah, you sure do" I joked around then he tossed me onto his back as I landed in front of Flora.
She shook her head "you know, you should be careful next time" she teased me, flicking her tail as she wrote something that can benefit from this hot room "there has to be something that makes the room hot, and no, volcanic heat isn't my huge conclusion here" she analysed her surrounding as I was about to open my mouth, she snapped them close "not now, I think I'm coming close to my conclusion" she denied my suggestion then grumbles for unable to come up with something "oh well, a lil more adventure might work" she said with a shrug as Pepper went to pick up Glitter "together onwards!" She declared as we got a move on.
The room is hot, really hot that I'm forming steam throughout the journey "I'm bored..." Pepper whined as he looks around aimlessly, finding a way to entertain himself "I spy... with my lil cute eyes, something reddish orange" he said as I pointed at what seemed to be a small pool of lava "never mind, I found it" he padded over to the source of heat that it formed more steam the closer we get "off to another room" he announced before breaking into a run which made Glitter and I held onto his fur. Our travel back to the door is quite the chat, suddenly, we picked up speed "what is that!" He exclaimed as it made us fall off as I recovered quick as I chased after him cause I can see a faint elevation on the floor "it's a fleshcap! Fleshcap!" He exclaimed as I can't save him from the trap. The pressure plate is being stepped and the walls soon shoots out poison dart "help me!" He cried out in pain as some hit his paws as I responded with a light screen around him while disarming the trap "F-Flora!" He pleaded as I continued to burn some wires and jamming some gears, soon, the walls stopped shooting darts and por Pepper lying there helplessly"h-h-help me" he gasped.
I got to his side, taking out the darts "Pepper! Just hold on!" Flora helped out taking the darts as she rummage her pack for a pecha berry "eat this, hero" she assists Pepper in eating the berry as I managed to pull out 10 darts as I can see her feed a few more "that was close" she gave a sigh of relief as she covered the area with a band aid soaked in pecha berry juice "lets just go find a safe place for you to rest up" she spoke softly as I hoist him up onto his feet with my light screen.
I kept watchful eyes for anything suspicious while navigating our way back to the door "umm... t-thanks Stormy" thanked Pepper as he gave me a lick as he hobbled in effort to get a move on "s-sorry for causing trouble" he whined for all he could do as a sign of regret is sag his tail, creating a path where his tail rests on the ground. I jumped on him and gave him a pat on the back, he's all good in my books no matter what. Once we made it back to the door, we entered an... ordinary room. The room of nothing much interesting can be said about it and just... that, enough said.
Flora finds a nice place for him to rest up his wounds "this seemed convenient" she added as she laid down a bunch of dried leafs for Pepper to lie down "rest up now big boy, you made me worried alot" she spoke softly as she slept between his big paws. I glanced at them before heading back the door we came in and this time, we came back to the tilted room with that fatty barboach, still eating his barrel full of berries "hey guys, I need some help" he told us as I approach the barrel, there's a hole I could see through "I'm stuck in this barrel when I was busy choosing what berry fits what, umm... help?" He pleaded as I rolled my eyes and helped him out of his barrel as he rolled all the way towards the door on the left as I hinted Glitter to fetch the fleshcap. I grab hold of his slimy fins and tried to budge him out "you know, the odd thing about me is that, the only area slimy is my fin" he admitted as he gave us a hearty laugh. I sighed as I gave another pull as he came out the barrel with a loud pop and my worst dream came true, being squished under his lardiness.
I levitated him, at least to being able to roll is quite enough to make me stretch my muscle after the squash that is "smash the lock Glitter, I have to stretch these muscle" I groaned as she simply went to pick the lock for the sake of keeping me cool. I was being supported by her to the door as I can't help like I owe her for helping out "t-thanks" I stammered as we entered the room, I leaned against a rock. Observing my surrounding, the room is full of vines... interestingly enough, the area is full of dried leaves too "meatroot, come on, let's pull it out" I invited her as I secured my psychic powers on it as I tried to pull it out but again... it wouldn't budge when Glitter held onto me to help pull it.
We tumbled down the room as the loot landed besides us and we're in an awkward position, Glitter on top of me "uhh... umm... yeah..." I flustered as she nuzzled me which made me blush for her action as I levitated her off me "speak nothing about this to anyone" I said as the door from where came in opened up, a jolteon and vulpix pair came in briefly then came back to where they came from "h-hey! Team No-Regrets! Wait up!" I exclaimed as I was too late to even get them to notice our presence. I felt dejected for the moment as a familiar paw pat my shoulder "thanks..." I said as we followed the door they went in.
This dungeon is confusing! First, we're in this room and when going to another, they shift! We came to a room where the rocks are spongy for no reason "watch out!" I yelled as my reaction was a bit slow to prevent Daniel the vulpix from a trap but lucky him that he manages to run from it. I stayed behind those spongy rocks "Glitter, you know what to do" I smirked as she quickly dashed around the room, occasionally used Flash to attract their attention "this is gonna be a bucket loads of fun!" I grabbed the barboach commander's bucket hat and gave it a few knocks like a bell then fled back through the door.
I slipped upon entering the room and slide like almost half way through the room when a psychic energy pulled me behind a conviniently placed rock "who made the floor slippery!" I snapped hard that I accidentally used a strong Psyshock at the attackers by banging their heads with each other and then concealed myself in my own light screen cube all cranky with very little grumbling noises made.
I tire myself from my tantrum as a few knock on the psychic glass woke me up "hey stormy, you ok in there? Listen, just hold on a lil longer cause I'm gonna be asking around for directions and maybe... treat you a trip to an ice cream shop one day" she spoke as I sort of notice a shiny umbreon and spiky eared pichu pair just about to exit the room "wait up!" She called out as they stopped to answer a few question in her mind.
She came back with a smile "chin up now, we're not gonna give up this easily" she told me as she lifted me up then flicked her tail "Subseed Forest and Basalt halls, twisty indeed but did we give up?" She questioned me as I shook my head with defeat "did I sat around and threw a fitting tantrum?" She continued to question me that I had no choice to take everything in "then get up and get going cause all of these twisty dungeon will not be looked at again after this" she spoke with determination as we went to another door not far from this seemingly ordinary room's corner.
Upon entering, Team Electric Feed left the room that is quite unlucky for us cause I feel like to ask for directions now despite the constant shift of the dungeon "this room is so cold, even my fire couldn't seem to melt the ice wall" I complained as a recognisable giggle can be heard from the door Team Electric Feed came out from. I took a deep breath and combed my fur as the door slowly slides open.
The door now open wide reveals Team Emerald Bloom with a shiny espeon on Pepper's back and a shiny eevee bouncing into the room "Firestorm~ you have got to see what I got" she called out like that one teacher back at school as she jumps down to be showing us two spoolstone "anyway, back to exploring" she said as she tossed the spoolstones towards Pepper then turned back to face me "right, forgot something, this is Team Shining-Stars" she introduced them as Glitter and I waved back at them "anyway, the door we came in is quite sandy but due to the shift of the dungeon, you might be lucky not to cross it" she told us as I held open the door behind me before going towards the door where the area is full of large chains hanging by.
The eerie atmosphere lingering made it uncomfortably for me to travel deeper into the room "Stormy please, will you just move" she spoke as I managed to yank her tail from squirming "what's the big-" she hissed and then came to realisation that a glint from the trap caught her attention "disarm this thing! I've had enough of burning tail for one day" she complaint as she ran behind me, leaving the trap all to me to handle. I chuckled quietly while disarming the trap "look what I got! A meatroot!" She exclaimed as placed it into her bag as I gave a sigh of relief that the trap is disarmed. I took my time to look around, the sound of the metal chains is just enough to startle me as I gestured Glitter to follow me back to the door.
We came to room where something is hanging up on the ceiling "well... that is something creepy you don't see everyday" I commented as my paws felt something loose that it gave way. I had no time to spare to react that I plunge to my fate of an empty hole that I broke my right hind paws "argh! Such a deep hole" I complained as I tried to use my psychic ability only to be causing more pain "Glitter! Catch the rope and be gentle on me!" I added as I levitated the rope towards her as I waited for the rope to come falling towards me.
There's grunting noises at the surface and soon quiet down "haha! Got the rope knot free!" She exclaimed which attracted my attention towards the mouth of the hole "grab on to it Stormy! I'm gonna haul you out of there in no time" she instructed me as I grabbed on to the rope with my teeth, slowly being pulled up to the surface. Suddenly, I began to fall a gew feet down and then being yanked "sorry! A yawn came up so... yeah... my tail takes the shift" she told me as I huffed in annoyance as I look at the surface, approaching me at a gradual pace. Of course, the trip back up has their lil entertainment along the way like a nice chat, a lil teasing, and some prep talk about my predicament.
So, this is the first time I had to be carried around due to injury. Even though I could simply allow my psychic energy to levitate me around, I fear that I would hurt myself in the process "alright Stormy, you had your lil laugh now but if I'm injured, your turn to carry me around and no fancy light screen" she huffs before making our way to the door not far "I have an odd feeling that beyond this door, shadowy stuff might fly by and cause either one of us to be spooked" she predicted as we went in, she was right all along. A shadowy like creature just flew by and went straight back through the door we came in "lets just get out of here, I hate to see you injured" she spoke, ignoring the looming shadow as we made it to the doorway that soon lead us to a room with a wooden chest "a chest, what lies in it truly is a big topic to chat about" she continued to make her way to the chest when a fat barboach halts us.
He turns to look at the chest and back at us "listen, His Grace told me to guard this chest that has an egg in it but I'm so hungry so please take it away from me" he pleaded as we inspect the chest, it's well decorated with a rain drop pattern on every faces of the chest "I have a tendency to eat anything that is kept in storage" he added as we took the poor egg with us when the light source grew brighter the closer we get.
The sun shines so bright as if a good weather is guaranteed throughout the day... oh, no point even thinking of bad weather since its a desert anyway "at last, freedom! Now to wait for Team Emerald Bloom" I said with joy that I felt a tap behind me, coming from a rather large paw.
I turned to look at the arcanine then levitated both Glitter and I onto his back "Geoda, here we come!" Pepper announced, traversing the desert towards our destination. I have to say about Pepper's spirit, no matter what happened to him, he never wants to fail anyone he finds dearly and even the bandages meant nothing to him!
Upon reaching the HQ, I took my time to just relax on Pepper's back after exploring too much and also due to my broken leg. I kinda have to join them explaining their findings of today's dungeon which I myself don't mind at all.
