After getting his starter from the lab and saying adios to the people he met there Shin was eager to set off -and more importantly, to see family again. Specifically his grandparents. He couldn't wait to introduce them to the newest addition!

Said addition happily agreed with this idea, leaping up to cling to his trainer's arm!
... with his jaws!

"Ack! ow ow ow- " The boy frantically waved his arm about, making worried faces and running in short circles. Man he hoped no one was watching this, he probably looked ridiculous.

"-N-now now, say it with your words, not your teeth~" He gently chided, flinching here and there while he pried his exuberant pal off, who then swung about on that same arm as Shin watched, a chuckle bubbling up into light laughter. Well, he hadn't bitten that hard -really it was just more startling than anything.

Yeah, he was sure he could get used to this.

For the time being he found a small parkette within the area, in which he plopped himself down and set about organizing his bag while his totodile made busy playing with one of the unused pokeballs by balancing on it.
Hey, he was even having some success with it!

                                                  Natalia stepped calmly out of the lab, but the moment the door closed behind her, she practically fell back up against it, breathing hard and panicking. Now what? He was going to come outside any minute, was she supposed to just keep up this friendly charade until he left her alone Or should aha actually try to stay with him? As guilty as she felt, staying with him didn't seem like a good idea. She was about to have a panic attack just seeing him again as a stranger, so she couldn't imagine what she would do if he got to know her better and she had to keep a tight cover up.

                                                  Sure she had thought long and hard about her new persona and the answers to any background question she might be asked, but she didn't think he would be the one testing it. Shaking her head, Natalia got off the door, quickly before anyone came out, and walked over to a nearby bench. Perhaps meeting her new partner would help cheer her up. She'd always gone to pokemon as a child for comfort, and she wanted to return to that habit. Releasing the Cyndaquil from its pokeball, the little fire type stretched and took note of her surroundings. "Hey there~" Natalia smiled. "Quil....?' The Cyndaquil turned its head slightly and hopped up onto the bench next to Natalia, then came onto her lap, putting her paws up onto her chest for support as she examined her new trainer closely. Natalia couldn't help but chuckle. "You're fearless aren't you?" The Cyndaquill seemed to give a small smirk and dropped back down, curling up into Natalia's lap. "Haha, did I pass your examination? I'll do?" Natalia smiled, gently stroking the fire type's head. She seemed to like that, nuzzling into Natalia's hand, and little by little, Natalia's anxiousness faded away. She had always been bester with pokemon than people... How did she ever lose sight of what Pokemon really were....?

✦ ✦ Stepping outside of the laboratory, Aiden took a deep breath of fresh air as he surveyed the quaint little area that was New Bark Town. In all honesty, it didn't seem to have changed too much since the last time he'd been here a few years ago. But no one said that remaining unchanged was particularly a bad thing, after all. For the most part, he was content enough knowing that nothing bad had happened to the place and that Professor Elm was just as busy as ever. For Aiden, today was the day of a brand new start, a new journey with new Pokemon. He supposed that he could get used to it, even though it would take a bit of time...
But for the time being, Aiden felt that it would be a good start to this new journey to first get to know his new partner. Taking the Pokeball he had acquired from his belt, he held it out and gently tapped it to release the Totodile inside. A thin beam of light shot out from the ball as it opened, the little blue Water-type materializing in front of him. The Totodile yawned as if it had just awoken from a nap, its little jaws opening quite wide to reveal the sharp, dagger-like teeth inside. They were quite notorious for biting just about anything and everything they could get their jaws around, Aiden figured that he'd have to be a bit more cautious when handling this Pokemon depending on its disposition. After taking a bit of time to stretch itself out, the Totodile surveyed its surroundings with its half-lidded red eyes, before finally turning to look towards him. It narrowed its eyes slightly as it looked him up and down, occasionally craning its neck about as it sized him up, apparently wanting to get a good look at him from seemingly every possible angle. " Hello~" he greeted the Totodile cheerfully, " Hope you don't mind having me as your new trainer~" The little blue crocodile tilted its head slightly, still-narrowed eyes seeming to consider his words as it got what was likely a thoughtful look on its face.
After a few moments of careful deliberation, the Totodile gave a sharp nod in answer. " I'm sure we'll be great friends~" Aiden said, smile widening as he gently reached a hand out towards the little croc, hoping that it wouldn't try to bite him at the very least. The Totodile stared at his outstretched hand for a couple of seconds, before it moved closer and lightly headbutted it as its own way of acceptance. " I'm sure you'd like a name as well? Although... hmmm..." he started to say as he gently ran his fingers along the Totodile's smooth scales, his voice trailing off as he realized that he wasn't sure of what his Pokemon's gender was. " How about this, nod once if you're a boy, twice if you're a girl," he suggested, knowing that the Pokemon could understand him perfectly enough. The Totodile seemed thoughtful for a moment as it processed his proposal, before nodding its head once to indicate that it was a boy. " How does the name Samoa sound to you?" Aiden asked with a small smile on his face. His mother had told him that it was good practice to ask your Pokemon whether they liked a certain name you wanted to call them by or not. According to her, Pokemon could be quite sensitive if they were called by a name they did not particularly like, and Aiden had absolutely no intentions of giving his Pokemon inane or insulting names of any sort. Thankfully, the Totodile seemed pleased with the name as its little jaws curved up into the faintest hint of a smile and it gently nuzzled against him.
" Great~" the blonde-haired trainer agreed, his smile widening as he continued petting the newly dubbed Samoa. It seemed to be fairly comfortable with him as of now, which was all he could ask for as far as first impressions went with his new partner. Straightening himself up, Aiden glanced around the rest of their surroundings, seeing a few trainers already heading out of town. Perhaps they should be looking to leave as well, their journey would only be able to truly start once they set out on the road. However, the sight of the trainer girl from moments earlier caught his eye as he saw her sitting on a bench nearby with her Cyndaquil in her lap. He couldn't help but smile sadly at the sight, remembering back to how he would handfeed berries to Rocket while the Cyndaquil would sit with him. Though he was looking to head out soon, perhaps it wouldn't hurt to feel what it was like to be with a Cyndaquil, if only for a few seconds... " Come on, Samoa~" he said with a nod towards the Totodile, who looked towards him for a moment before following alongside his trainer.
As they approached the girl, Aiden looked back to Samoa, having noticed that the Totodile hadn't said a single thing ever since being released out of his ball. " Not much of a big talker, huh?" he asked lightly, remembering how Rocket had been pretty much the exact same way when they had first met. Samoa simply looked up towards him, blinking slightly, but otherwise said nothing as they made their way over towards the girl and her Cyndaquil. " Hello again~" Aiden greeted her politely as always, smiling warmly to the girl before his gaze unconsciously went over towards the little fire mouse Pokemon in her lap. " Cyndaquil, huh? A great choice, if I say so myself~" he complimented amiably as he bent down slightly, just enough so that his face was level with the Cyndaquil's. It looked so serene and adorable curled up in it's trainer's lap like that... and it seemed to be relatively comfortable with the girl as well. Even so, his smile slowly faded away, his eyes clouding over the longer he looked at the little Pokemon, memories of what it had been like when he'd once had his own so many years ago flooding his mind. Samoa regarded the girl with a careful gaze, instinctively moving to stand close to his trainer as if he sensed the strong emotions coming off of the boy and felt the need to protect him. Aiden broke his gaze away from the Cyndaquil after several moments, glancing towards the girl and giving her a weak smile. " May I...?" he inquired softly, sincerely wanting to pet the little fire mouse Pokemon but uncertain of if its trainer or the Pokemon itself would allow him to. Of course, he would understand completely if they wouldn't, people tended to be quite protective of their Pokemon, and he was a stranger to them after all. He would be disappointed, yes, but at least he would be able to take some comfort in being able to see what it was like to have a Cyndaquil, if just for one last time before he set off on his journey across Johto.

                                                  Natalia debated a name for her new pokemon. A fire type, but of unknown gender, since male and female Cyndaquil didn't have any physical differences. "Blaze is a nice neutral name, but I would like to know if you're a boy or a girl..." Natalia wondered aloud. Blaze looked slightly offended, as if it was obvious what gender she was. Natalia put her hands up defensively. "I'm sorry...! I'm not a pokemon..." She took another look and thought it over. "You seem like a pretty calm pokemon, so I'm guessing girl, because only a girl would get worked up about this kind of thing if she was generally calm. A boy would probably try to show off instead.... Or I'm completely wrong and you can get mad at me again." Natalia laughed. "So did I guess right or not?" She asked. "Quil.' Blaze nodded reluctantly, not quite sure if she liked the reasoning behind her guesswork, but at least she got it right.

                                                  Aiden's cheerful voice made Natalia stiffen as he greeted her again. "O-oh! Hello..." Natalia gave him a cursory glance and quickly looked back to the ground, focusing on his Totodile and giving a little wave with a smile in as he complimented her choice of starter. "Mm..." Natalia nodded, looking to Blaze and stroking her head. She would have said more in agreement, but her tongue felt thick, recalling the Typhlosion he'd had when they battled. She stole another glance to him and quickly regretted it, seeing how sad he looked. The knot in her stomach writhed, and Blaze seemed to since the tension and discomfort, looking at her trainer somewhat worriedly. Aiden however, asked a question inclining to if he could pet the Cyndaquil, though his voice was softer, and his smile weak.

                                                  Critical hit. Super effective.

                                                  Natalia internally winced, for she dare not do it outwardly now, and forced herself to speak clearly and normally, something she was thankfully good at after all of her undercover work. "Well it's fine with me, but ultimately it's up to her." She suggested lightheartedly, hoping to cheer him up a little with some slight humor. Blaze gave Aiden a once over, cocking her head slightly, but sensing his kind heart and the fact that he was grieving, she wiggled a little closer to the boy, as if inviting him to pet her, or even pick her up if he so desired. Natalia giggled at the sight. "I'd take that as a yes. Go right ahead~" She insisted, though her happy demeanor soon faltered. "...What's wrong...?" She asked gently, though she knew the answer, however if he told her, she'd have an excuse to grieve with him like she so desperately wanted to. She pat the empty space next to her on the bench, inviting him to come sit with her and talk for a while.

✦ ✦ The smile remained on Aiden's face as the girl nervously greeted him back, though he hoped he wasn't alienating her too much. As far as he was concerned, he was a stranger to her, and most people tended to be fairly cautious when talking to someone they had just met. The girl gave him a quick glance before she looked away, turning her attention towards his Totodile. Samoa tilted his head slightly as she smiled and waved to him, trying to determine what to make of her as he was unsure of how to respond to her gesture. However, his trainer seemed to be okay with her so far, and if Aiden felt that she was trustworthy to some extent, that was all he needed to know. The Totodile nodded in return, still not saying anything as he remained close to his trainer.
Aiden's smile widened ever-so-slightly as the girl nodded in response to his compliment regarding her choice of starter, bending down so that he would be able to see eye to eye with the Cyndaquil in her lap. The longer he looked at it, though, he felt the still volatile emotions of grief and sorrow well up within him as memories came flooding back to him. It felt as though he could no longer look at it without the horrifying images of his Typhlosion being brutally slaughtered by the Void assassin's Pokemon playing in his mind over and over again like a broken record. Out of all of the Pokemon on his old team, Rocket and Daguerro's deaths had been the most brutal... Even still, he was trying his absolute best to hold himself together, feeling Samoa nuzzling at him in an attempt to comfort him. He unconsciously reached a hand out to pat the Totodile lightly in return, before he pulled himself together enough to ask the girl if he could pet her Cyndaquil, his voice soft and his smile weakened.
He felt his heart skip a beat as the girl said that she wouldn't mind if he did, but it was ultimately up to the Cyndaquil if she wished to be pet or not. " Of course," he agreed with a nod, giving a soft chuckle as he returned his gaze to the Cyndaquil in her lap. His sky blue eyes watched as the fire mouse Pokemon looked at him, tilting her head as she scrutinized him. Suddenly, she moved closer towards him, a sign that he was welcome to pet her or perhaps even pick her up. His smile widened as the girl giggled and said that it was perfectly fine for him to pick her Pokemon up since the Cyndaquil had gladly agreed. " Thank you~" he spoke softly with a nod to the girl, reaching up and gently lifting the Cyndaquil up and into his arms. Holding her in a way to ensure that she was comfortable, Aiden smiled warmly as he stroked the little Pokemon's head. " You're absolutely beautiful..." he whispered to the Cyndaquil as he pet her, letting his fingers take in the silky softness of her fur, feel the pleasant warmth emanating from her small body that indicated the fire burning within... He felt as though he wanted to just live in this moment forever, indulging in the much happier memories that were now surfacing to the forefront of his conscience.
However, he was snapped out of his daze when the girl asked him what was wrong in a concerned, gentle tone. Aiden's smile faltered at that, though he was more than happy to accept her invitation to sit next to her. Moving over towards the side, he seated himself in the empty space she indicated. He gently deposited the Cyndaquil back into her trainer's lap as he did so, reaching down to pick up Samoa and placing him in his own lap. The Totodile looked up towards the boy, the expression on his face still blank and unchanging, but the concern for his trainer was palpable in his red-eyed stare. " I don't remember the last time anyone had ever asked me that... Was it really that obvious?" Aiden began with a soft laugh, bringing his sky blue gaze towards the girl while he held and gently pet his Totodile. " But to be honest, there are just so many things that are wrong... I don't even know where to begin, really," he added, any previous cheerfulness having fled from his voice for now, " I guess the better question would be 'What isn't wrong?'..." His voice trailed off towards the end, the blonde-haired trainer turning his gaze towards the Totodile in his lap. The cloudiness returned to his eyes as he continued gently stroking Samoa's scales, seeming unsure of how exactly to go about answering her question.
A few pregnant moments of silence hung around the solemn trainer before he spoke up again. " You know... someone once told me, many years ago, about how Pokemon are like children..." he said, a sad smile dominating his lips as the words passed through them like wind through a valley, " You raise them as your own... love them... discipline them... respect them... cherish them... They become more than just partners to their trainers... They become your best friends, perhaps even family..." He felt the bitterness and sorrow grow even more as he recounted his mother's words, his stomach felt twisted, his throat thick... " And in return, they give you their undying love and loyalty... They will remain with you no matter what, even when the darkest of hours eventually rears its ugly head... They will follow you to the ends of the world and back again, and sacrifice their own lives to protect yours in your utmost time of need... because they love you just as much as you love them..." he went on, trying to keep himself from choking up, " And they say that the worst experience that any parent can ever go through... is losing their children..."
As he spoke those last words, he could now feel the full weight of his grief pressing down on him, the loss of his parents, the destruction of his home, the demise of his old Pokemon team... There was only so much loss that a single person could handle all in one sitting, and Aiden was certain that he was well over that unknown quota with everything that he had been through thus far. " It's the hardest sight for a parent to endure... when they can only watch helplessly as their children are mercilessly cut down in front of them, one by one... The children they had put so much love and devotion into raising... The children whose love and loyalty towards their parent are as undivided as the universe itself, all gone... Their lives all cruelly diminished in one fell swoop..." he finished, raising a hand to wipe away at the tears that had already started to trickle down his cheeks, " It is not an experience that I would ever want to wish upon anyone, after having experienced such tragedy in it's entire brutal, heart-rending horror..." Even though it had been months ago since his old team had been killed, it felt as though the loss was fresh from yesterday as he spoke about it. Samoa frowned deeply, unsure of what to do in this kind of situation, before ultimately settling for nuzzling up against his trainer in an attempt to provide some comfort.

                                                  Natalia smiled as Aiden held Blaze, who seemed to blush slightly as he called her beautiful. She cuddled herself contently into his arms, and Natali had to fight the urge to give her to him. He deserves her more than you... Natalia hesitated as she heard whispers and jeers at the edge of her consciousness. It was time to take another pill, but not here, not now, not in front of him. She tried to tune it out, focusing on Aiden, happy that he took her invitation to sit next to her, though he seemed surprised how obviously upset he was. Natalia chuckled hollowly. "Well you don't exactly seem like the depressed type, so I can't imagine many people would think you were sad, but I can tell. Call it instinctual empathy." She suggested with a small smile. Or a good memory... Another voice suggested snidely, and natalia grimaced, but thankfully Aiden didn't seem to notice.

                                                  As he went about reliving the painful memory of their last encounter, Natalia felt each word killing her, slowly but surely, like a sweet poison. She made herself sit through it though. This was her atonement and his retribution, whether he knew it or not. She couldn't look at him, she could only hide her face by looking at the ground and letting her hair fall around it. Quietly, she let the tears fall. This is all your fault. You've caused him so much pain.... How can you live with yourself...? You can end his suffering.... Smother him now, make him choke on the words that hurt you so. Natalia didn't know what to do. Sitting here and listening to him was making the voices worse, and she didn't want to take any medication in front of him, or he'd wonder what it was for. Maybe she could lie and claim it to be stews medication? That was technically true wasn't it? Oh no, but then he might feel like he was causing her stress. technically he was, but she didn't want him to know that.

                                                  Comfort him.... A soft voice told her. She liked that voice, it was the only one that didn't drive her off the deep end, but she rarely heard it, which made it not worth the price of not taking the medicine and dealing with the others. Natalia turned and pulled Aiden into a hug. "I'm so sorry..." She said quietly, squeezing her eyes shut. She was apologizing for her actions, but he would take it as a sympathy apology. A win win. After a moment though, she let go, feeling awkward and slightly flustered. "Ahh.... I'm sorry for that too. That was... Um...." She shook her head and started over. "Getting hugs from a complete stranger is not something you need right now." She sniffled and wiped her tears. Oh no... What if he thinks you're a creeper weirdo now?? Natalia grimaced again, deciding it was high time she quieted these voices. She was already starting to get a headache.

                                                  That's it! Headache. She could say the medication was for migraines that she suffered from. Another half truth, but a normal explanation that he would probably accept. Natalia opened her satchel and pulled out the large bottle, taking out a pill and popping it into her mouth, swallowing it whole as she put the bottle away. Slowly but surely, she felt the dizziness and headaches and whispers fade. Her vision cleared, her focus came back, and she felt a weight lift off her shoulders. Maybe now she could breathe and relax, act like a normal person even. "So perhaps, if we weren't strangers, it wouldn't be so awkward anymore...?" She offered a hand. "I'm Fey Marquee, and you are....?" She asked. The lie left her lips easily. She hadn't used her real name in years, for she had to constantly adopt new ones, so it was nothing new.

Where am I? New Bark Town~
Who am I with? Fey, her Cyndaquil, and Samoa~
How am I feeling? Feeling a bit better, I guess
What am I thinking? ' It's been so long... I guess I've nearly forgotten what it was like to have someone who cared...'

Movement: 3/3
Wild Pokemon: 3/7

Item Quest: Great Ball 6/10


✦ ✦ Aiden couldn't help but smile as he held the girl's Cyndaquil in his arms, cuddling her as he gently ran his fingers through her smooth fur. He chuckled softly as the little Pokemon seemed to blush a little when he said she was absolutely beautiful, holding her against his chest while he continued petting him. However, his brief moment of happiness vanished almost as quickly as it had come when the girl asked him what was wrong. Gratefully accepting her invitation to sit with her, Aiden returned her Cyndaquil back to where she had originally been in the girl's lap and allowing Samoa to sit in his own lap. He was fairly surprised how the girl had noticed how upset he was... Maybe she was just that good at reading people, or maybe he hadn't done too good a job of hiding his emotions. Either way, there was no denying it now that she already knew. When he asked her if it had really been the obvious, he gave a weak smile as she chuckled humorlessly, saying that he didn't seem like the depressed type and she felt that not many people would've known he was sad. He raised an eyebrow slightly at her mention of instinctual empathy, though he nodded and gave a tiny smile in return, " I suppose that's your way of saying that you can read people pretty well, huh?" Not that he would really be surprised, there were people out there who actually were quite skilled at reading emotions. He just hadn't really met anyone like that before, at least up until now.
Nevertheless, he went on to answer her question as he recounted the most recent tragedy he had gone through with the loss of his Pokemon. He kept his sky blue eyes down towards the ground, or more specifically on Samoa in his lap as he pet the Totodile as if hoping to garner some form of comfort from doing so. It felt rather weird, that he was telling all of this to someone he had just met not even ten minutes ago... But she had seemed so genuinely concerned when she had asked him what was wrong... And once he had started telling her about what happened to the Pokemon he'd once had before their brutal, untimely deaths, it felt like he just couldn't stop until he had gotten it all out. By the time he had finished, tears had already started trickling down his cheeks as the dam was threatening to burst. He wiped them away with a hand, doing all that he could to not break down into an emotional wreck in front of the girl he didn't even know the name of yet. The trainer felt the light touch against his arm as Samoa nuzzled him, the Totodile not quite knowing what to do but still willing to provide some form of comfort. What he hadn't expected, though, was for the girl to suddenly pull him into a gentle embrace as she said she was sorry. The action caught Aiden off guard for a fraction of a second, though he made no move to push her away. He couldn't remember the last time anyone had hugged him... not ever since his parents and his friends had been taken away... " I... Y-You don't have to apologize..." he spoke, trying to find his words as he unconsciously reached up, wrapping his arms around her to return the hug, " It's not like it was your fault... But thank you..." It had been so long... it felt as though he had nearly forgotten what it was like to be around those who actually cared... But it felt rather nice... and he felt somewhat better after getting all of that out. His mother had always told him that it wasn't good to keep such feelings bottled up inside...
After a moment, they broke the hug, the girl apologizing awkwardly with a flustered look on her face. Aiden felt a tinge of heat erupt on his cheeks as well, though he gave a small smile as she said that getting hugs from a stranger was not something he needed right now. " Well, I... To be honest, that actually helped me out quite a bit, so there's no need to feel sorry about a hug~" he spoke in a gentle, cheerful tone, raising his hands up in a reassuring manner, " Stranger or not, it was actually quite nice... Thank you..." Still, when he saw that the girl had been crying as well, he couldn't help but feel a bit bad. " Really, I should be the one saying sorry... I hadn't meant to unload all of that on you," he added, shaking his head slightly as he looked towards the ground, " I guess that I just couldn't stop once I started... So, sorry about that."
He glanced over towards her again, watching quietly as she retrieved a large container from her bag, taking out a pill and swallowing it before putting it back. Though he felt that it was really none of his business, he couldn't help but wonder what she needed pills for, considering the size of the container they were in. Then again, there were plenty of reasons why people took pills on a regular basis, he just hoped that they weren't for the wrong reasons... knowing how people could potentially overdose and die from taking too much at once. He returned his gaze back to her completely as she suggested that it wouldn't be so awkward if they weren't strangers anymore. " Well, I don't see why not~" he agreed lightly with a nod, a hopeful feeling rising in his chest at the thought that he just might have made a potential friend. His smile returned to its usual bright warmth as the girl extended her hand, introducing herself as Fey Marquee. " Quite an interesting name you have, Fey, I like it~" he replied amiably, taking her hand with his own and shaking it, " Aiden Ellithorpe, a pleasure to make your acquaintance~" After a few brief moments, he let go and withdrew his hand, gesturing towards the Totodile in his lap, " And this is my partner, Samoa~" Samoa's red-eyed gaze went towards the girl again, the Totodile looking her over once again before giving a small wave towards her. " So, I guess you've come to Johto for a new start as well?" Aiden asked, tilting his head slightly towards Fey, as his sky blue eyes remained concentrated on her face. He had a feeling that he already knew what the answer was, but he felt that it couldn't hurt to ask anyways. Perhaps she was maybe looking to head on to another region, that was what the train station on the town's border was for, right? Well, if that was the case, then maybe this was potentially the first and the last time he would see her. Still, if anything, he was at least glad to have gotten the privilege to at least know her name.

                                                  Natalia was glad she was still hugging Aiden as he insisted that she didn't have to apologize, because it wasn't her fault, because she wanted to wail, and had to hold it back. She bit her lip and held Aiden tighter. Oh if he only knew how wrong he was....

                                                  When she felt composed again, she let go, albeit somewhat flustered for holding on for so long. She apologized again, but he dismissed that apology too, pointing out that the hug had actually helped, in spite of it being from a stranger. He did apologize for unloading everyone on her, but Natalia absolutely refused to let him apologize for that. "No no! Don't be. You clearly needed to get it off your chest, I don't mind listening and being a shoulder to cry on." She insisted.

                                                  She was thankful that she didn't get questions about her pills, even though she had a good excuse planned. It's not like the bottle was marked in any way other than the strange triangle pattern. He did however, appreciate her name. Good thing too, she'd spent a lot of time coming up with that one. "Thank you." She smiled, shaking his hand as he took it and introduced himself. "Likewise~" She nodded, turning her attention to Samoa as he introduced him. She giggled as the Totodile gave a small wave, not unlike the one she'd given him before. "It's nice to meet you as well Samoa. Oh! And this is Blaze." She gestured to the Cyndaquil in her lap.

                                                  When Aiden asked if she came to Johto for a new start as well, Natalia's content expression sobered. "Yes... Something of that sort..." She fidgeted uncomfortably. She'd originally had a plan and background set in mind for Fey, but Aiden deserved better than that. While she couldn't tell him the truth, she refused to outright lie to his face either. "My family life was.... Rough, to say the least. For a time I took my frustrations out on other people, and worst of all, my pokemon. I closed everyone and everything off, my team became a means to vent my anger rather than a family, and by the time I'd realized who I'd become, it was too late." She shook slightly. "I'm.... Not proud of the things I've done... I wanted to start over, to try and make things right... But you know what they say about ghosts of your past.... They tend to haunt you..." She said quietly.

                                                  "I fear all I'm doing is running from the inevitable, but that seems to be what I'm best at..." She sighed and gave a tired smile, standing from her seat. "Where are you headed Aiden? Anywhere in particular? You seem like good company, and if you don't mind I'd like to travel with you for a while longer." Just a little while at least. It was a big step out of her comfort zone, and if things started getting bad, she would bow out and be gone, but perhaps she could handle trying to make friends with him.

Who am I with? Fey, her Cyndaquil, and Samoa~
How am I feeling? Cheerful and eager~
What am I thinking? ' Travel partner, huh? Well, I don't see any harm in it, I can't remember the last time I've had such good company~'

✦ ✦ Aiden couldn't help but notice the girl's hold on him tighten as they hugged after she apologized, even though he insisted that there was no need for her to do that. Had he upset her somehow? He hoped he hadn't... or maybe it was because of something else? Nevertheless, they broke contact after a few moments, both of them looking rather flustered as she apologized for it while he kept insisting that she didn't have to. The hug actually did help quite a bit, whether she believed it or not, and Aiden honestly was feeling much better than he had been about a minute ago. He couldn't remember the last time he had received such a friendly gesture... perhaps he had spent too much time alone on the long journey he'd made to get here. When he apologized for dumping all of his troubles and sorrows on her, she adamantly insisted that he didn't have to be sorry, that he had needed to get it off his chest and she didn't mind listening and being a shoulder to cry on. Aiden still seemed a bit uncertain about it, but he gave a small smile and a nod of understanding, " Well, if you say so, then I'll take your word for it~"
Soon enough, they had moved on from the initial awkwardness of the hugging scenario as they introduced themselves to each other. Aiden had to admit that she really did have a nice name, he hadn't actually met anyone named Fey before up until now. He smiled as she thanked him for the compliment, shaking her hand as he introduced himself in return, the two of them reciprocating formalities between each other. He even introduced Samoa as well, the Totodile giving his own greeting that he had apparently picked up from Fey as he waved to her. Samoa seemed to be feeling a bit more comfortable around her, if at least such that he didn't just simply stare at her. Aiden's gaze went down to the Cyndaquil as Fey introduced her as well, smiling warmly, " Blaze is a lovely name~ It's a pleasure to meet you as well," he said in a good-natured tone.
The girl seemed so happy now that they had gotten well-acquainted with each other as well as each other's Pokemon, Aiden couldn't help but feel bad when the contented smile fled from her face when he asked if she was here for a new start as well. She seemed a bit uncomfortable as she answered, saying that it was indeed something of that sort. He was about to apologize for unnerving her, even though he really hadn't meant to, but listened as she went on to explain what had happened before she'd come here to Johto. The blonde-haired trainer's expression became solemn as she explained her rough home life, venting her anger and frustrations on other people and her Pokemon, and that she was hoping to try to make up for everything. He nodded slightly as she spoke about how ghosts of the past tended to come back to haunt them, " Of course, I know exactly what you mean..." It made him feel guilty that not everyone in the world was able to have a nice, stable home life like he'd had. But then again, they weren't exactly living in an ideal world, because if they were, then it was likely that Team Void wouldn't even exist to begin with... The expression remained on his face as she said that all she was doing was just running from the inevitable, but it seemed that it was what she was best at. " Perhaps, but, I'm certain there will come a time where running away isn't an option, and I hope to be prepared for when that time does come, as much as I'm hoping that it doesn't..." he said, giving a weak smile as she stood up from the bench.
Figuring that maybe it was about time he got moving, Aiden made to stand up as well, pausing momentarily so that Samoa could climb down from his lap. Straightening himself up, the blonde-haired trainer glanced over towards Fey when she asked where he was headed. " Well, I figured that Cherrygrove City would be my first destination, I really have no intentions of leaving the Johto region anytime soon," he answered earnestly with a small smile. He had done more than his fair share of traveling between regions for the time, and he figured that he would consider exploring places outside of Johto once he had a capable team. He blinked slightly in surprise, however, when Fey offered to travel with him, saying that he seemed like good company. Even though they had only met a short while ago, Aiden felt that it would actually be nice to travel alongside someone else for a change. " Well, I don't see why not, I've certainly been enjoying your company as well, Fey~" he replied, a wide smile on his face as he nodded in agreement," To tell you the truth, I've been rather lonely for the past few months before coming here... It would be nice to have someone other than myself to talk to, you know?" In all honesty, Aiden had pretty much shut himself down to the rest of the world after losing his old Pokemon team, despondent and unwilling to really carry on a conversation with anyone... He had just felt so... numb, distant from everyone else around him... It would truly be a nice change of pace to have a travel partner, they could maybe even become friends somewhere along the way. Samoa seemed to agree on the idea of Fey coming along with them, the Totodile giving a nod as well as the tiniest of smiles that had not made much of an appearance to show his consent. " Seems Samoa agrees too~" he commented with a light laugh, adjusting the straps of his backpack so that it wasn't listing to one side. With his cheery disposition now seeming to have returned for good, and a new sense of confidence in his heart, he nodded towards Fey. " I'm ready to go when you are, partner~" he said with a bright smile, quite eager to get going on the road and take the first few steps to officially start their journey.

                                                  Natalia nodded solemnly as Aiden gave his own two cents about running from the inevitable, agreeing with him. However, Natalia cleared the air of the depressing topic by asking to travel at least a little longer with Aiden, and much to her surprise, he agreed. On one hand, she was happy to have a traveling partner, but on the other, she was absolutely terrified. Fey would have been thrilled, but the Vesper within her didn't want to be found out. She wanted to disappear into nothingness, like she'd never existed. It didn't help that Aiden claimed that he'd been lonely for the past few months, because she knew why. Nevertheless, Natalia gave him a small smile and nodded. "Yes, I'd like that too." She agreed.

                                                  "Cherrygrove sounds like a good start. Besides, it's not like we can really go any place else first without flying or surfing." She chuckled and nuzzled Blaze, holding the Cyndaquil gently in her arms. She could see why Aiden wanted to hold her; she was so very soft and warm and cuddly. Natalia laughed slightly as Samoa gave his convent to her tagging along. "Well thank you Samoa, I appreciate it~" She giggled and nudged Aiden gently with her shoulder as he declared that he was ready to go when she was. "Well then let's get going slowpoke~" She teased. Perhaps this wasn't going to be as hard as she originally thought...

✦ ✦ Aiden's eyes remained on Fey as they talked, seeing her give a solemn nod as he spoke about running away from the inevitable. There was really no real way of being able to truly outrun your troubles, and it seemed that the only way to escape them was to face them head-on. The blonde trainer couldn't help but wonder, with that thought, if maybe Team Void was still looking for him. They might have assumed that he was already dead, or maybe they figured that he wasn't much of a threat towards them now... In the months that he had spent traveling alone, he had wondered if perhaps the Void assassin would return to finish the job while he'd had no means to defend himself. He recalled back to the battle they'd had... the fight that had ultimately cost his whole Pokemon team their lives... His own Pokemon were slowly dying from their wounds in the field, and the assassin's Pokemon were encroaching on him, preparing to land a finishing blow on him... And Daguerro... Daguerro had saved him at the last minute, taking the full brunt of the attacks that had been meant for him even though he knew he wouldn't survive... The Jolteon had always been a tenacious little guy, and would have done absolutely anything to ensure his trainer's safety... Not a day went by that Aiden told himself how much he missed them... and if he was able to rescue his parents, would he be able to break the news to his mom that her beloved Daguerro was dead...? He remembered how much he had cried when the Jolteon had died... and remembered how the assassin would have easily been able to kill him while he'd been vulnerable, as he cradled Dag's torn, broken body in his arms...
But she hadn't... instead she had run off, with her Pokemon in tow, and had never come back around since then. Back then, Aiden had been so torn up, mentally and emotionally, he had almost wished that she had followed through with her intent and had taken his life as well. Why did she spare him? Where had she gone? Would she ever come after him again? So many questions, and not enough answers... For now, he supposed that he could hopefully assume that he had fallen off of Team Void's radar, though he had no doubts that they might come for him again eventually. He just hoped that he would be better prepared for whatever they might throw at him when that time did come...
Aiden brought his focus back to the conversation at hand as Fey asked if she could accompany him on his travels. The proposal caught him off guard a little. After having no one but himself on the long road he'd taken to get here, the idea of having someone else with him seemed nearly foreign after enduring several months of solitude and loneliness. But Fey seemed like a genuinely nice person, and had proven herself to be good company to share conversation with. There was no way Aiden could bring himself to refuse her offer, in fact, it would be rather nice to have someone else to talk to while on the road for a change. He was all too happy to agree, and smiled when Fey agreed on his statement of being able to talk to someone other than himself. She seemed to agree on his proposal of heading towards Cherrygrove, commenting that they really couldn't go anywhere else until they would be able to fly or surf their way there. " Of course, though I'm sure we'll get there sooner or later~" Aiden consented with a smile and a soft chuckle as he looked between Fey and Blaze, whom she held in her arms. While it would be nice to go and explore other regions when they were able to, he figured that was for the best if they remained in Johto for the time. His smile widened when Samoa agreed to the idea of them sticking together, the Totodile nodding in return as she thanked him for the consent.
With their Pokemon and bags ready, the two of them were prepared to set out towards Cherrygrove City. He grinned as she nudged him, saying that they should get going and calling him a slowpoke. " Heh, we'll see who's the slowpoke soon enough~" he retorted back lightly with a laugh, " Let's go then~ We might be able to reach the city before nightfall~" It was still fairly sunny out, and there was not a single cloud in the sky. Perfect weather for starting a Pokemon journey. With a wide smile on his face, he turned and headed for the path leading out of New Bark and towards Cherrygrove, keeping a good pace to ensure that he was walking beside Fey while Samoa strutted along on his other side. " You sure you don't want to be carried, Sammy? Or I could return you to your ball, if you want," Aiden offered as he glanced down towards his Pokemon partner. The Totodile looked up at him, tilting his head slightly as he pondered the apparent nickname he'd been given. Samoa seemed to find being called 'Sammy' acceptable, though the Totodile shook his head at both offers to be carried or returned to his ball. " Independent type, huh?" he commented with a chuckle, remembering how Rocket had been the exact same way. It was almost as if the Typhlosion had been reincarnated in the body of a completely different Pokemon, but with the same personality... Still, he pushed the thought aside for now, trying to think about those things less now that he had a whole journey ahead of him.
His gaze went back over to Fey, a thought coming to mind. " You know... someone told me once that everyone goes on a journey like this for a reason. Some want to find themselves, some want to reach a certain destination before settling down, some want to ascend to the top, to become the best of the best, and others have entirely different goals in mind," he said, a contemplative look crossing his face as if he was considering something, before giving a small smile, " If it's not too much to ask, what are you hoping to accomplish on this journey, Fey?" In the time he had spent traveling, he had come across many different people and Pokemon from different walks of life. Some went on to become Pokemon Coordinators, training their Pokemon to compete in contests and win fame and fortune. Some wanted to become the region's Champion by taking on the Elite Four, which seemed to be a fairly common goal among many trainers. Contests had never really been Aiden's forte, he preferred to watch rather than participate, and he had no real intentions of becoming Champion either. He had other goals well in mind already, and as far as he was concerned, saving his family and friends was his very first priority. He could only hope, though, that he wouldn't be too late by the time he was finally able to get there...

                                                  Natalia was grinning from ear to ear as they walked off towards the road, tossing teasing slowpoke comments back and forth. Things felt a little lighter, natural even; something Natalia didn't feel very often these days. It was nice. Blaze seemed content to be carried, however Sammy continued to silently decline Aiden's offers for the same treatment. Natalia couldn't help but smile slightly as Aiden commented on the Tododile's independence. She turned her attention back to Aiden as she felt his eyes on her, and though she knew it was in kindness, she still couldn't shake the nagging feeling that this was wrong. He should hate every fiber of her being, and he probably would if he knew who she really was, but here they were, talking and giggling like the best of friends. As much as Natalia would have loved to believe in the charade herself, a part of her felt wrong. She frowned inwardly and shook the thoughts from her mind to listen to what Aiden next had to say.

                                                  He commented how someone had told him that every trainer had some sort of goal in mind, and wondered what hers was, if it wasn't too much to ask. What did she really hope to accomplish....? All she was doing was running, she'd wanted to start a clean slate with this new persona, but it was clear Arceus wasn't going to allow that. Putting Aiden in her path couldn't have been pure coincidence, this was atonement for her malicious deeds, and she had too much self discipline to just leave him. Obviously she couldn't tell him that her goal was to make amends with him using this persona, but she had already told him she'd wanted a clean slate. "Well, I suppose that my goal would be to raise a team with love, and challenge the gyms with that kind of team. Like I mentioned before, I used to treat pokemon so horribly, looking back on it now, I can't believe I was so blind... I... I want to do things right this time around. And I suppose.... Find myself as well. This journey is going to be a sort of retake for my original, to replace bad memories with good ones, and experience things with my eyes open." She explained thoughtfully. She had no real goal in mind, she just wanted an adventure, one that a normal trainer went on, one that was happy and alongside friends.
