Awsome



It was much warmer in Gigarte now. Only a few days ago there were inches of snow, and it had all melted. However, it was still quite chilly in the grassy fields above the underground city. Yet despite the cold conditions, color was starting to return to the landscape. The brown of the grass under snow had quickly transmogrified into a healthy, young green. Young creatures, human and Pokemon alike, too were being revitalized...

This was a busy time for those working in the fields above. The Himan family ranch was no exception. The flowerbeds would need to be weeded, and the perennials watered. The Miltank were ready to be let out into the pastures after being cooped up in the barn for months. The Combee, would wake up soon and begin producing the honey, the main product of the ranch.

Cousin Sandy from Destrixia was visiting for a few weeks at the suggestion of her parents who wanted her to experience a farming lifestyle, which was very different from the urban life in Destrixia. Amelia hadn't seen Sandy since they were seven and Aunt Jamima had invited Sandy's family to stay at the ranch while Sandy's parents stayed in Gigarte on business for their electronics business. Their visit started out badly: Amelia got angry at Sandy and pushed her into a mud puddle. After the apology, however, the two had gotten together well.

This would be Sandy's first day of work, and Amelia was glad they had an extra hand. There was just so much to get ready for this time of year. A few days ago she could spend her days curled up by the fire reading, training her Pokemon or advertising her business. Everybody had gone to bed early to make sure they were ready for the work tomorrow.

Aunt Jamima woke up first and opened all the windows to let in fresh air. She then headed into the kitchen where she promptly gathered all the ingredients for flapjacks. Soon the smell of Flapjacks had aroused Uncle Joe, Aunt Jamima's husband and Amelia's favorite Uncle, out of bed. He went and woke up Amelia's parents. The three of them began to set the table as Aunt Jamima continued making the scrumptious Flapjacks.

Little Sammy (Amelia's little brother) and cousin Jed had somehow managed to smell the delicious aroma of Flapjacks in their dreams and were racing to get down stairs. They rambunctiously played Samurai warriors in the next room while the flapjacks were frying. Aunt Jamima told them to be quiet; gra'ma was still sleeping.

Aunt Jasmine and Uncle Sebastian, who lived in a small shack next to the main house, had smelled the food during their daily training sessions with their Linoone and ran into the house, accidentally slamming the door behind them. Luckily, Gra'ma didn't hear it but Sandy, who wasn't used to such chaos in the morning, was able to hear it and made her way downstairs just as Aunt Jamima began to dish out the pancakes. It wasn't unusual for Amelia to be late to breakfast, so the group said the blessing and began to dig in to Aunt Jamima's savory pancakes.

Like always, Aunt Jamima left a batch of Flapjacks out on the the windowsill for Amelia when she finally woke up. The sweet aroma of the Flapjacks was softly caressed into the outside world as a gentle breeze blew fresh air through a house that had been locked all Winter...

And a Golurk



“Wait…I smell pancakes.”

Darius and his charmander, led only by the fates, continued their quest for fame across the continent. As it turned out, fate had led them back to Gigarte for one more task. Either that, or the trainer and charmander ran around in circles, passed out under a tree, and never left the Gigarte area to begin with. Whatever the cause, the dragon trainer found himself in the middle of a farmland springing to life. Fields of flowers were painting the grasses with reds, blues, and yellows, among other colors. The sky was equally colorful as the night surrendered to the dawn amidst a sea of red-orange dotted with purple clouds. The sounds of chirping birds getting ready for the day provided for the early morning soundtrack. Though the smell of the morning dew was refreshing, it was the smell of food coming from the Himan house that ultimately had the pair drawn to the household.

Darius took a moment to look upon the charm of an old-fashioned farm house. He had not seen anything like them amongst the Spartan homes of Blackthorn or within the areas of Opelucid. It was strange that something so simple for many could garner the attention of someone whose mindset focused on the fantastical. His observation did not last long as his charmander began knocking on the door. Darius had arrived at the front step just in time to see the door open.

“Er, Greetings!” Darius said as he combed his horned hairdo with his fingers. “Darius Dovakin, dragon trainer. I’ve traveled all the way from Unova searching for fame and high adventure! On my way, I couldn’t help but notice the delicious smell of pancakes. Me and Bindy here have been traveling for quite some time, and were wondering if we could partake in your feast. In exchange, you will have the services of a mighty dragon trainer for the entire day!”

Darius saw this as a win-win. He’d get a home-made meal AND the opportunity to impress the farm family with his mad skills. As for the Himans, perhaps against their better judgement, allowed Darius inside. They must have needed the work badly to let a guy dressed in armor and a cape into their home. However, one man’s dragon trainer was another’s strong ranch hand.

And that’s how Darius and his charmander Bindy found themselves at the Himan table with a stack of pancakes. Two kids, Sammy and Jed, gravitated to seat close to the dragon trainer, especially at the sight of the sword hilt at his side. While his charmander was trying to master the fork (all she could do was poke holes into her meal), Darius recounted an adventure of his within Blackthorn. Well, maybe a little exaggerated…

“All this food reminds me of the time I journeyed into the Icy Cave with the Drake clan. We were exploring the basement when a trio of jynx invited us to their table. They had a fantastic smorgasbord of frozen treats. You’d think they robbed an ice cream shop! Anywho, we trusted the pokemon. Little did we know that we had fallen for their charms. Despite their innocence, jynx are still predators. Any longer and they would have skewered us to icicles and peeled the flesh off our bones for months!”

"AHA! I see so Jynx are not as nice as they seem." Lane stated as he peeked in, his head right side up as he was peeking in from the his comfy position on the roof. His long hair and pack hanging past his head to farther below him. Not even noticing the startled faces of the residents in the room, he lifted his head back above the window and nimbly, using his strong climbing fingers, swung himself into the room below landing with a flip.

Still bent over he brushed himself off, though the dirt on his body seem layered and there wasn't much he could do to remove it. Straightening up he exclaimed "Lane Jacobson, explorer extraordinaire, at your service!" flashing a victory pose and sticking out his tongue. The large, currently engaged in a meal family could do nothing but be in awe at how forward this young tanned blonde seemed to be. Caden, a bright eyed Chimchar popped out from behind Lane's toned shoulder, copied the action cutely, before curiously noticing the flickering flame tail of the charmander, preoccupied with the use of a fork, and ventured off to investigate.

Lane finally noticed the curious faces within the room and finally went on to explain, as a Solosis who seemed to be enjoying the situation wholly appeared in the window landing promptly on top of Lane's head. "Well, I just left Daigake, with Wiley" Lane explained pointing upwards towards the Solosis snickering, nestled in Lane's unruly blonde hair, "and Caden here" Lane gestured to baby Chimchar about to place his hand into flame dancing at the end of the Charmander's tail. "I decided that I would head off in a random direction, and sure enough a weeks later, I am strolling in a beautiful field of flowers when I see a man in full armor." Lane flashed an excited look towards the spiked red haired man clad in armor and cape. "Frankly, that was just to cool to pass up."

By the time he finished Lane had positioned himself right in between Sammy and Jed, the boys already accepting him into the what seemed to be an Armor Fan Club. Lane's eyes shining likes star in admiration at the armor, while Wiley had gone off to aid Caden in playing with fire, his prankster streak taking control. "I want it" Lane stated bluntly.

With a huge grin on his face, Lane boldly exclaimed "Give it to me" holding out his hands expecting his reward as if it had already belonged to him...

Lilly was riding were the wind took her. Nothing could make her happier then being outdoors. "Wait a minute. Do I smell pacakes?" She guessed that the general area was ranches, which did not make her happy. Land couldn't have trees for people to be able plant crops. She would just get wet if it started to rain. She let out her pokemon and asked them, "do you smell pancakes?" They all agreed with her. It would be great if she could eat something besides berries. Ember, her Ponyta, thought she knew the way to the pancakes. So, Lilly hopped back on her bike and said, "led the way." Before long she was coming up on a little house.

She stood there wondering if she could just walk up and ask for pancakes. Ember really wanted pancakes, even though she had never had them before. She started to walk up to the house when a guy, that she did not even notice, swung off the roof and into the house. Knowing that Ember would startled she hushed, "steady girl."

When she walked up to the door, and she saw the guy from the roof. Also, a guy in armor, she had seen alot of his type in Blackthorn, he was a dragon trainer. Just then the roof guy, as she decied to call him for now, said, "I want it. Give it to me." Holding out his hand like the dragon trainer would just give him something. Lilly would have slapped his hands, it is insulting just to bluntly say, I want it. Give it to me. Though what could roof guy want from the dragon trainer, then, of corse his armor.
"Um, you have no right just to say, give it to me. I'm surprised he didn't slap your hands." Then Lilly adressed the people who lived here, "I was just wondering if I could have some pancakes. But seeing that you already have people here, I'll just ask for some for my ponyta. She has never tried them, and would like to. I have money and can pay you back. Me and the rest of the gang can have berries." Then after thinking a bit added, "seeing that this is probably a ranch I could do some work for you. Anything outside is good, and would love to help."

Lane turned, if not morosely away from his interest in the armor, to gaze upon his lecturer. He stared blankly at the teenage girl standing confidently next to a Ponyta. Grasping the situation he just caused, Lane stood up and laughed embarrassingly to himself, scratched his head and began apologizing "Im sorr.... Gurr..guullll" Just as he started the remorseful apology of his intrusion, a most delicious smell reached his nostrils, urging his stomach to make some rather disturbing noises.

Chuckling again, " I guess a few more wouldn't hurt right?" Lane asked with pleading eyes towards the on looking family, as he rubbed his stomach in anticipation. The family probably had two options at this point, but one wasn't something they could let their children see. So reluctantly Lane was accepted into the meal party.

By this point, Caden had already lost interest in the flame of the charmander's tail and had enlisted in Wiley's assistance of sneaking him onto the back, for a ride on the Ponyta that had just entered the house. Wiley seemed more than pleased to aid him in his tomfoolery.

Lane had once again gone back to his hijacked seat in between Sammy and Jed, and after giving a quick apologetic nod to the first arriver, sat down and began to stuff his face with the already prepared pancakes before him. Saliva dripping from his mouth as he let his gluttonous side take control. Struggling to speak between the mouthfuls, Lane said "if everyone else is to help, I suppose I'll lend a hand too. After all, 'is the least I can do."

The roof guy, upon apologizing, started to dig into the pancakes. Lilly sat down against wall, to start her breakfast of berries. Her ponyta still wanted pancakes so Lilly told her, "Go on. There are some pancakes on the table." Ember looked at the table with longing, and then looked back at Lilly. "Go on; if you want pancakes go get some." Ember finally walked, cautiously, to the table to eat some pancakes.

Lilly let out her other two pokemon, for their breakfast. Ice Beam, a spheal and her very first pokemon, and Zeus, a very crazy caterpie, took in their surroundings. She explained to them, "Because there are already two people here we are not going to be rude and eat more of their food." Ice Beam nodded in agreement, since the spheal's personality was almost just like Lilly's, though Zeus on the other hand wanted pancakes. "You have had pancakes before and Ember has never tried them. Eat your berries...wait I think I have some crackers." Lilly pulled out a small thing of crackers and split them. Zeus was very happy with berries and crackers.

While the three of them ate berries and crackers, they looked at the house. Lilly could kind a see Ember, but judging that she had not come away from the pancakes, she liked them. Her parents weren’t fond of fire types, so Ember never got the pleasures her other pokemon got. Ember then snorted and stomped, Lilly thought that it was strange behavior of her ponyta. Though, Lilly went back to her breakfast. Suddenly, Ember squealed “EEEEE” and reared. Zeus upon hearing his friend’s distress rushes in to help. Lilly calls “Zeus don’t anything to rash.” Then she sees what caused Ember to rear, there was a chimchar on her back. Ember was freighted of the chimchar when it suddenly climbed onto her back. Lilly had no idea what to do, but Zeus would not be a help. “Zeus get back here, I’ll deal with it.” “Okay, whoever’s chimchar is on my ponyta’s back could you please get it off. It really scared her.”

Awsome



Aunt Jamima happily allowed the visitors into their home, after all, Gigartians and former Lenoilians tried to be as hospitable as possible just to contrast the stereotypical, "Heartless Petropolians." Likewise, The Himan's were not strangers to rowdiness, as conflicts were bound to arise whenever large quantities of people were crammed into one place. However it was unusual for three trainer to come in on the first day of work.

The boys were so engrossed in Darius's tale that they barely noticed the other entering until Jed was nearly trampled by a rampant Ponyta. He let out a large shriek, but was quickly pushed out of the way by someone sitting near him. Unfortunately, his plate of Flapjacks did not land with him, but rather on Darius.

Spilling the food was a trigger for all the Himans (Gra'ma did not like being wasteful and she beat the habit into the rest of the family). Immediately, the family formed two clumps to settle the problem. While some tried to calm the Pokemon down, others went to help clean up the mess on Darius.

Upstairs, Amelia was awakened by Jed's screech. She haphazardly got dressed, not even bothering to shower and fix her bed head because of the hard day's work ahead of her. Hope, her Vespiquin, was already awake and was doing her morning stretches in the corner of the room. Sometimes Amelia wished she could harness Hope's morning personality.

Lately her room had become more crowded, not only did house numerous magazines, several police reports, and small farming equipment, it housed her Pidgeotto, Austin, and his nest along with Hope's hive. Before they evolved, she bought some training equipment so she could keep her Pokemon as well trained as one of her friends, Daniel Worthington. However, after her Pokemon evolved there was little room to maneuver with all the extra stuff and two larger Pokemon.

Luckily for Amelia, Austin had taken it upon himself to guard the Miltank barn from intruders during the night; even though the Himan Compound mostly produced Honey, the family produced other foodstuffs in order to set off expensive bills for feeding so many mouths. Austin's absence during the night as well as most of the hours of the day had freed enough space up in her room to make it manageable.

Amelia yawned out the window, only half-caring if Austin had heard her cry. Austin, who did hear her cry from the Miltank barn, immediately set off towards the Himan Dining Room. Likewise, Hope gracefully fluttered across the house towards the dining room. In stark contrast, Amelia went galumphing down the stairs.

Still half asleep, Amelia ignored the chaos of the dining room and went to the windowsill and started eating her flapjacks. After taking several bites she felt a little bit more awake, and started out her greeting going left to right across the swarming clusters.

"Mornin' Ma'n Pa!"
"Mornin' Amelia"
"Thanks for the Flapjacks, Auntie!"
"No, problem sweetie."
"How ya' doing Litl' Sammy?"
"Good, sis'."
"How you do'in Darius?"


"DARIUS?!"

Amelia was jolted awake seeing her weirdo acquaintance again. Spikey-hair was back, and eating breakfast with her family! She thought that she had managed getting rid of him a few days ago following the incident in the Agriculture District. Now he was in her house bonding with her family. She didn't mind tourists when they were buying her honey, or even if they stopped by the farm to work for a day, but it was extremely annoying when tourists kept popping up in your life and started bonding with your family. Tourists were made simply in order to supply their business with the money it needed to survive!

Amelia quickly fixed her tank top and sat up straight. She was also mildly embarrassed of speaking so casually in front of Darius. He probably thought she was country hick now. Compared to Sandy, Amelia looked poorly dressed and careless, even though Sandy's outfit was much less practical for yard work. Sandy was offering Darius a napkin to help wipe off the syrup.Amelia felt her anger starting to flare. She needed to calm down and promptly took a few deep breaths trying not to lose her temper.

"Darius what in the world are you doing in my house?"

And a Golurk



With pancakes flying all over the place as new people and pokemon collided, the morning had a rather hectic start. Darius however, took it in stride. Family members gathered around him to help him clean up. Now this was hospitality! The dragon trainer picked a flapjack off his shoulder and rolled it up like a taco. His charmander took note of the technique and ate accordingly. Though syrup was a good filling, the dragon trainer would have preferred some eggs and meat. This didn’t seem like the crowd to mention that to, however.

Shortly after, Amelia arrived at the table in all her morning glory. Darius looked up, rather surprised at the odd coincidence. He flashed a smile as the girl came to the horrible realization that the man she thought was long gone was now munching at her breakfast table. Bindy waved wildly in between bites while her trainer raised a pancake to answer Amelia’s question.

“Why am I here? Well, pancakes of course.” He cleared his throat of pancake with a glass of juice and continued. “Also, I’m lending my skills for citizens in need. I’m here for the whole day!”

As he said this, he gladly took the napkin offered by Sandy, another girl who looked like she preferred the great indoors over green acres. He offered a curt “milady” and a sly smile as he used the napkin to wipe his mouth.

“Nice hair by the way,” Darius said to Amelia. It was still quite early in the morning but the dragon trainer had his witty tongue already armed and ready.

Awsome



Sandy giggled, charmed by the handsome and foreign quest, and went to clean up some of the mess. Amelia fumed at her unexpected house guests while her family swarmed around Darius, making sure he wasn't badly injured. Amelia had a familiar dizzy feeling, then noticed that Darius had a new pancake adorned on his forehead. What a strange person: wearing food as a hat! Strangely, she was starting to feel much better, despite the astonished look on Sandy's face.

Amelia, not realizing what she had done as she oftentimes did when her anger arose, calmly began eating her Pancakes. Things began to settle down as breakfast continued, though Amelia continued to give Darius the cold shoulder, in sharp contrast to the warmth of her family towards their guest. Amelia had already tried to represent Gigarte to this guy once, and it was early in the morning now! She wasn't ready for wierdos in the morning.

Darius on the other hand seemed to have a retort for everything she said. Despite his clear lack of navigational skills, he obviously made up with his wit and character, which her family found fun and exciting much to her chagrin. Little Sammy and Jed were especially mesmerized by his farfetched tails, while Sandy seemed much more interested in his good looks and charming accent.

Cousin Seth suddenly burst in, announcing it was time for work. Cousin Seth was something like a manager to the family. He crunched the numbers and created the work schedule, he also seemed to keep his distance from the rest of the family, eating his meals separately from the rest of the family and living in his own house on the outskirts of the farm. However, he was an essential cog in the machinery of the family.

Seth went and began to break the family into their groups; Amelia was going to work with Sandy, Jed, and Darius, while he would work with the other two guests and Little Sammy. The adults were similarly broken up into groups. Amelia frowned; though she liked Sandy, she didn't want to put up with showing two ill-prepared people how to do basic farming tasks but she dared not question the managerial genius of Seth. Their first task was to take care of the Miltank in Barn B.

Disappointed in the composition of her team, she passively gathered the crew.

"Come on, I'll show you guys the barn."

After taking Amelia’s offering of another pancake (“Flying food must be a tradition around here.”), another family member barged in and told everyone to get to work. Before Darius could finish his juice, he was organized into a team under Amelia, along with two of his new admirers. The dragon trainer promptly recalled his charmander to rest and digest as they all headed out the door.

“Ah, the wide open plains!” Darius commented to his fan club of Jed and Sandy as they followed Amelia. “No destination in sight, no roads to corral you to some preordained location. And when there are no roads, there is plenty of adventure.”

As they walked, Darius scooped a stray purple wildflower and proceeded to slip it into Sandy’s hair. She walked a bit ahead with a spring in her step, giving a smile to him as she walked with Amelia to learn more about this new acquaintance. He gave a nod and a smile right back before turning to Jed.

“Jed is it? I couldn’t help but notice your trainee swords in the house. Maybe we could test your skill out after all of this. I’ll even throw in a few things I learned from the Swordmasters of Blackthorn.”

In the short time that he was here, Darius was making connections through the Himan family. “Who knew grumpy ol’ Amelia belonged with all these kind and generous people”, he thought.

Leaving the cramped house, Austin and Hope took to the sky. The fresh air did much to make her feel better. It was as if the vast expanse above Gigarte was freedom and liberty. Like those who founded Lenoilia and Gigarte, it did much to calm her being open to the great blue expanse. Amelia suspected the awe of the serene landscape above Gigarte was the only reason why the free spirited artists of Gigarte rebuilt their sanctuary in the cramped underground city.

As the two flying Pokemon majestically flew above ground, Darius galavanted with Sandy briefly before settling alongside Jed to talk about something boyish. Amelia was not very fond of the idea of Darius getting close to Sandy, though she was somehow less distressed about him befriending Jed. She had to overcome her anger issues and be a role model, like she was supposed to be.

Amelia bit her tongue as she told Sandy how she had met Darius a few weeks ago when they had volunteered to help the auspicious botanist known as Mr. Darsay with a pest problem. She left out the part about the conspiracy of the poorly-explored caverns and grottoes surrounding Gigarte; there was no need to have her worry about it, besides the police were still investigating the Gigarte Grotto incident and the mishap near the agricultural district.

Perhaps that explained part of her anxiety about Darius being here. She was normally a very good host, even if she had a tendency to attract... eccentric people, with whom she had a little less patience. While Darius had assumed that they had vanquished the threat to Gigarte, but in reality they had merely halted a beachhead of a much larger and sinister operation. He had been so content in his service to Gigarte, and she did not want to rain in his parade. She just assumed that he would never cross her path again. Would someone with his mental uniqueness react well if he found out that they hadn't stopped the bad guys, and there was nothing that they could do about it?

That, and the fact that the novelty of his cultural and mental differences were beginning to wear off. Though she could see why Sandy liked Darius, he was rather dashing and maybe even slightly gallant, despite being stupidly quixotic.

Meanwhile, Jed smiled as he began to converse with Darius about swordplay. This mysterious stranger was probably the most exciting person he had met in his entire life. Sure Amelia had helped stop a meteor from destroying the planet, but she never played with him and didn't care a lick about important things like swords and fighting. All she cared about was work and money, and the honor of Gigarte. Mr. Darius knew all the cool things.

"Really!? That would be totally wicked, can you really show me some of your sword moves? Maybe I could finally beat lil' Sammy."

------
The party eventually reached Barn B. It was not the largest barn, but the Miltank here were more moody than the main barn. In fact, this barn was for Miltank that were acting up. Little Sammy and the two other guests would be at Barn A, the easiest barn to handle despite being the largest. Further on was Barn C, where pregnant Miltank were kept from shortly before they lay their eggs until about a week or two after the calf hatches. Since that group required more care, they were more difficult and one of the adult groups were given that task.

"O.K. everybody; tread lightly. The Miltank in here are easily startled so be careful not to make any loud sounds or sudden movements. I'll explain what we are doing once we get inside!"

And a Golurk



Darius entered the barn with Amelia and the others. It appeared to be a typical barn, complete with stables lined with hay. Within each stable was a plump cow pokemon, none of which looked terribly happy to see the humans. The dragon trainer’s eyes met with one of the miltanks, resulting in an aggressive growl towards him.

“I don’t think it’s a good idea to be around these ones,” Darius remarked, averting his eyes to the ceiling. “At least, not without a quick glare from my ekans.”

Darius had the pokeball in his hand as he formulated a plan. Snake would use glare, causing paralysis and allowing the beginning ranch hands to milk the bovines without fear of getting stomped. One of the miltank saw the pokeball and mooed loudly to alert the herd. Soon the rest of the cow pokemon were mooing, filling the barn with their echoing cries. Darius had to put his hands over his ears to lower the intensity.

“If only I could just faint them, this would be much easier,” he said to no one in particular. The warrior had reached his first hurdle on the range. It looked like he’d have to learn some new skills from Amelia in order to get a refreshing drink.
