Chapter 2 – Bag-Thief
It was silent. Too silent.
The Crimson Road is a home to a gang of Sneasels. They have stolen bagpacks and food from people bypassing the road since the time they migrated here, from Elune Forest. Jaina was aware of this, so she gripped her bagpack lash firmly. Chansey did the same, but with the basket.
“Did you hear that?”
Jaina heard a swift movement deep in the woods of Crimson Road. Jaina began to panic. She reminded her Chansey to hold on to the basket, as the food supplies packed in the basket are the only supplies they have. The brunette’s mind spun around.
A sudden breeze chilled Jaina’s spine from the back.
A dark and purple-colored Sneasel snatched the basket right from Chansey’s hand and ran away swiftly. Jaina stood there like a statue, still shocked by the event.
“Chase the Pokemon!” shouted Jaina.
She took out a Pokeball from her bagpack and then threw it to the air. The ball opened wide open and a red beam of light was released out of the ball- resulting an Altaria to appear. It was covered with a fluffy and white cloud and its light blue skin shone like a diamond. It began to growl towards the night sky.
Jaina and Chansey took off on Altaria to chase the Pokemon thief. Altaria began to get a whiff of the air and detected the Sneasel, which was hiding behind a dark-colored tree. Altaria took off into the woods to catch it. Sneasel was aware of that, and then ran off from its hiding tree.
Altaria sniffed the air once again and detected it running off towards a broad river, far from Altaria’s spot. Altaria then flew towards the running Sneasel.
Altaria reached the river in a matter of seconds. When it arrived to the river bank, the Sneasel was already running away from Altaria on the opposite side of the river.
“Damn!” cursed Jaina to herself.
She didn’t want Altaria to cross the very wide river, since she doesn’t want to take a risk that a dangerous Pokemon like Sharpedo swims out of the river and bites Altaria when it is crossing the river.
Altaria landed onto the ground gently.
An ugly-looking fish suddenly splashes the Altaria with water. Altaria screeches back at the fish. Jaina saw this, and developed a notion to capture the golden fish.
“A Magikarp, perfect for battling when it evolves to Gyarados!” said Jaina.
The beautiful teenager sent back Altaria to it’s respective Pokeball and sent Chansey out to battle the Magikarp.
