~~Ancient Growth Forest~~
[The group had been stunned by a strange attack from a Nightmare who had apparently been in league with Pryme. They have been rendered completely useless until night time. One of the Phaze Guardians have appeared, but could not help the group, at Celebi's words at least... He has run off in pursuit of Pryme, and is attempting to stop Darkness' plans for Safa. He believes this is the disturbance of the Eclipses... When it is far from correct.]
...
[Still early morning.]
Ray: Urk... I... I wonder how Safiri is...
Slianna: Yeah... I hope she's okay... Right now, we're useless...
Celebi: Safiri... I hope you are safe...
...
...
...
[Stillness...]
...
Celebi: (...I can't... I can't time travel... Something's preventing me from doing that... Ugh... to lay helplessly through the ruin of this wonderful place...)
Ray: I guess we really have to wait... and hope for the best...
Slianna: Ray, we have to believe... It's all we can do...
Ray: If that's true... then I believe that Safiri can pull through...
...
...
...
[Unexpectadly, the sky darkens...]
Celebi: Huh...? Hey, is it getting darker?
Ray: It is! ...But why? What's going on?
Slianna: ...This... this can't be... there's no way...
Ray: Slianna, what are you talking ab--...Oh... That... Y-you're right! How could be happening so early?
Slianna: It's never come this early in the year...
[The sky becomes even darker...
Celebi: What? Hey, um... what's going on? Is it bad?
Slianna: No... it's...
[The sky darkens even more... Slianna tilts her head upward.]
Slianna: An Ancient Leaf...
[Ray pulls himself to his feet, shaking his head in recovery.]
Ray: We're saved!!
[Celebi manages to move again. She sits up, curious.]
Celebi: The Ancient Leaf? Oh! I remember! Slianna, you said it happens every year...
Slianna: Turning day to night...
Celebi: [Stands. She looks to the dark sky.] We really are saved...
Slianna: It's a miracle...
Ray: ...You two... do you feel that...?
Slianna: The forest is calling out to us...
Celebi: (It's similar to the Connection...Yes, I can feel the Ancient Growth Forest calling to us for help... It has saved us, and now we're going to return the favor...) [She turns around, facing the direction Aren dashed off in...] This beautiful place... won't fall to Pryme!! Let's hurry!!
Ray: Right! Let's get going!
Slianna: All right!
[The three delve deep into the forest in pursuit of Pryme and the Nightmare Alpha.]
...
...
...
Ray: [Running, panting.] Hey... Slianna!
Slianna: Yeah?
Ray: The energy in the forest... It's close to dying.
Slianna: ...You're right...
Celebi: Safiri's presence... it's... it's changing... It's weird...
Slianna: [Gasps.] Do you think she's okay!?
Celebi: I... I don't know...
[The three come to a stop before the almighty Ancient growth. The trees of the forest come to a circular clearing before its presence. As Celebi, Ray, and Slianna come closer, a faint lighted, tube-shaped elevator appears before them. It is flickering, low on magical energy.]
Ray: Pryme has to be within the Growth. Let's hurry!
[They step inside of the transporter. Within a second, their bodies become small lights that shoot up into the air, through the tubic transporter... it flickers as they ascend.]
...
...
...
[Suddenly, the transporter powers down. It vanished, and the three revert back into their original selves.]
Slianna: Huh!? [Looking around, she begins falling.] Whaaaaa!!!!!!!
Ray: [Falling.] Ahhhhhh!!!!!
Celebi: Gotcha! [In flight, she catches Ray's arm and Slianna's tail. Celebi struggles to keep her direction of flight, which is up.]
Slianna: Celebi!
Celebi: Ergh... [Looks up. She spots a pink glow coming from the sacred chamber of the tree...] Can't give up here!! [She ascends...]
...
[Within a minute, Celebi reaches the caved in chamber of the tree, where she spots Lea, Pryme, Aren, and who they assume is Safiri. Aren is struggling to stay on his feet, Safiri is knocked out, and the two of Darkness are locked in battle with Aren.]
...
Celebi: Aren!!
[Lea and Pryme turn around.]
Pryme: What!?! How did you get up here!?!
Lea: Awww, look who it is! Hello there, little Miss Celebi... How did you get up here? [Places her free hand on her hip.]
Celebi: [Floating into the chamber, she releases Ray and Slianna and they prepare themselves.] Lea! Pryme!!
Aren: Y-you three!! I'm g-glad you made it!!! But be careful!
Slianna: What have you done to this place!?
Ray: You'd better leave! Or else!!
Pryme: [Aggressive.] Or else what!? What are you going to do, Ray!?
Ray: Erm... I... I'm going to fight!
Slianna: I am too! You'd better stop this mess!
Celebi: Safiri!!
[Before Celebi can run to Safiri, the very same Nightmare Alpha from before rises from the ground in an instant and creates a transparent wall of dark electricity...]
Celebi: Whoa!! [Leaps back, almost falling off. She regains balance.] You!!
Nightmare Alpha: You have luck... Celebi.
Lea: I do apologize, dearie... but we don't have the time for a tea party right now.
Celebi: This is no tea party, Lea! What did you do to Safiri!?
Lea: If you have to know, we stole Safiri's power, using that to steal the energy of this little forest.
Pryme: You can't stop me now! I've got the power of an Eclipse!
Ray: Saf-firi!!
Celebi: Grrr... You dirty scum...
Lea: [Gasps.] Why you--! You watch your tongue! I'll have your little squirrel friend neutralized in no time!!
Ray: Wh-what!?
Celebi: [Shields Ray.] As if you haven't caused enough trouble...
Lea: ... [Giggles.] Well! It certainly does me nicely to know that you're taking Naught's little challenge seriously! Hee-hee!
Celebi: Lea...
Aren: N-Naught's challenge!? What is she talking about!?
Lea: I'm sorry, but you can't know~! Hee-hee! Now's the time, Pryme! Ooh~! I like that!
Pryme: It's Pryme time! [With Lea's assistance, he conjures a dark portal... Lea pushes Aren into it, and The Nightmare and Pryme leap into it as well...) Cacth'a later, losers!! Haha!
...
[The wall of electricity disappears, but the portal and Safiri remain. The other trio rushes to Safiri.]
Celebi: Safiri!! [Kneels.] ...[She bobs her head back a bit...]
Ray: Wh-th...that's not Safiri...
Slianna: Who's... who's he?
Celebi: No, guys... this is Safiri...
...
[The differentiated Safiri coughs, startling the three.]
Safiri: [Cough, cough.] Agh... Ack.
Celebi: Safiri!
Safiri: ...Oh... my head... Sheesh, what on Safa happened? I feel... exhausted...
Slianna: Saf! You're okay!!
Ray: Thank the Acnients!
Safiri: [He turns himself over, facing up.] Slianna? Ray?
Ray: Whoa...
Slianna: Yikes!
Safiri: You two... [Smiles.] I'm glad to see you... W-...why do I sound...?
Celebi: Like a boy?
Safiri: Huh? [Turns his head.] Who're you? You look... a little strange for a Safan... Ah--no offense...
Celebi: I'm not a Safan... [Smirks warmly.]
Safiri: ... [Manages to pull himself up... Safiri comes close to Celebi, studying her.]
Celebi: ...(The Eclipse of this world... Safiri... I've missed her... And this boy is the same person... This may very well expand beyond Safa... Even still... I missed Safiri.)
Safiri: [In awe...] ...It's... It's you...
Celebi: I've missed you...
[Safiri walks up to Celebi and snuggles his head against hers. Celebi returns this and hugs around Safiri's neck.]
Safiri: Chris... What's happening to us?
Celebi: Don't worry... we'll get you back to your normal self again...
Safiri: ...But... what about you?
Celebi: ...This is who I am... My name is Celebi now...
Safiri: You're... You're intending on staying feminine?
Celebi: Oh, that? That's all Lea's fault. I'll get her back for that, trust me.
Safiri: Heh-heh-heh!
[Celebi releases Safiri. He turns around to his other friends.]
Ray: Safiri... I don't care what you look like, we still love ya!
Slianna: We were so worried!!
[The three come close together. {Safan group hug. Very affectionate scene going on here.}]
Safiri: We're finally back together! Ugh, I was discombobulated this entire time... I didn't see any of this coming.
Celebi: [Staring at the portal...] (They left the portal... I wonder...) Hey guys...
[The three turn to Celebi, questioning her.]
Celebi: Pryme took the power of the Ancient Growth, with Lea's help... And now he's off to cause trouble somewhere else, with your power Safiri...
Safiri: [Growls.] Pryme... That jerkface dingo. We have to stop them! We can't let the forest stay like this...
Ray: And we need Safiri's power back!
Safiri: ...Well... To be honest, I still have some of my power...
Celebi: (So... It is like the Mew situation... Mewtwo only took some of his power... the transformation power... Safiri had the power to control most plantlife... We'd make a great team with the powers I manitain now... ) Wherever those two are, I just hope we can deal with them...
Safiri: ...[Looks up at Celebi.] ...You...you mean "we" as a team?
Celebi: Of course. Just like old times!
Safiri: All right!! This'll be great!
Ray: Let's make this an adventure to remember!
Slianna: Yeah! Today, we save our world!
Celebi: (I just hope Naught isn't leading me into a trap...) C'mon. Let's go. This should lead to the world Lea and Pryme escaped to...
[The four leap into the portal, unsuspecting what lies in wait for them on the other side...]
...
...(Naught... These challenges... I can tell it's a race against time... And this ability of time travel... Its the only way I can possibly beat the clock... It's to set that very clock...)...
