  1. Pokemon ran from the motorcycle that was roaring down the long, windy path in the plains of
  2.  
  3. Licentia.  They had no idea what the machine was, or who was on it.  The person who was
  4.  
  5. driving it, of course, was Aries.  He had needed to get away from the base, since the doctors
  6.  
  7. had finally cleared him.
  8.  
  9. So he had come to the plains, taking a motorcycle to ride.  The bike had a lot of power, and he
  10.  
  11. was going as fast as the stupid thing could, though he wished it could go faster.  He was
  12.  
  13. running.  Running from the thoughts of recent events that plagued his mind, simply because he
  14.  
  15. didn’t want to reflect on them; he would though.  He had no choice.
  16.  
  17. He wasn’t wearing a helmet, instead just a pair of sunglasses.  He only wanted the sun out of
  18.  
  19. his eyes, he didn’t plan on crashing.  He blinked, and his mind wandered, leading him to
  20.  
  21. thoughts about the one who got away, Nikita.
  22.  
  23. Nikita.  Why had he liked her so much?  Stockholm syndrome that was what Brandon had
  24.  
  25. attributed it to.  He was probably right too, although Aries assumed at least part of it had to do
  26.  
  27. with Nikita’s looks.  He’d chased her wildly until the Christmas party, when he’d decided that he
  28.  
  29. would give up on her for a while.  He had, and then he’d been injured again.  Brandon had
  30.  
  31. then taken the liberty of telling Aries that there was no chance he would ever get with Nikita,
  32.  
  33. and that he needed help.  The boy now attended therapy regularly, though he saw no point
  34.  
  35. to it.  The shrink hadn’t really helped him.  It was more calming for him to spend time with his
  36.  
  37. friend Victoria.
  38.  
  39. Victoria.  The small girl whom he had met at the park in Stratford; she had been crying over her
  40.  
  41. dead parents’ bodies.  Aries had chased down the hoods that had killed them, beaten them
  42.  
  43. until they revealed their base of operations.  He took Victoria back to the base, then diverted
  44.  
  45. his attention to the highrise, where he’d made what he’d almost thought would be his final
  46.  
  47. stand.  His life had flashed before his eyes when he’d been tossed out of the window by the
  48.  
  49. Tyranitar.  Attila had caught him, and Attila had saved him.
  50.  
  51. Suddenly, Aries came to a complete halt.  He didn’t know why but he just stopped, and the
  52.  
  53. bike was lifted into the air, and he was thrown off of it.  Suddenly he regretted choosing to not
  54.  
  55. wear a helmet.  He collided with the ground and jumped to his feet as quickly as he could, less
  56.  
  57. hurt than he assumed he would have originally been.
  58.  
  59. He turned a glare onto what ha d thrown him off.  He froze when he saw it had been an Entei;
  60.  
  61. he wasn’t afraid, he was just shocked.  His time with the Chosen had numbed his sense of fear,
  62.  
  63. leaving him with only his pride and his honor.  Both of those emotions screamed at him to stand
  64.  
  65. and fight this beast.
  66.  
  67. Live or die, at least he’d go out with honor.
  68.  
  69. His common sense overrided his pride on one point: He would not, at least not immediately,
  70.  
  71. attempt to fight the Pokemon with his fists.  Instead, he chose to snatch Beowulf’s Pokeball off
  72.  
  73. of his belt, summoning the Pokemon to his side.  The giant, purple, horned beast stood before
  74.  
  75. his trainer, waiting for his orders.  “Rip it in half,” Aries growled, sticking a finger in the Entei’s
  76.  
  77. direction.  Beowulf’s deadly teeth showed as a feral grin crawled across his lips.
  78.  
  79. The Nidoking turned to his enemy, surveying the prey.  He was able to sense that it was a
  80.  
  81. legendary.  A true test of his abilities!  The Pokemon’s pride caused him to roar, and the Entei
  82.  
  83. roared back, accepting the challenge.  Beowulf charged him, claws outstretched.  The Entei
  84.  
  85. ducked under the arms of the lumbering beast, and then sliced upward with his claw, dragging
  86.  
  87. it along Beowulf’s stomach.
  88.  
  89. For the first time in a long while, Beowulf knew true pain.  He howled and the Entei spat flames
  90.  
  91. into his opponent’s face.  Beowulf shut his eyes as the fire tore over him, his face suddenly
  92.  
  93. aflame.  He collapsed, defeated for only the second time in his life.  The Entei batted him aside
  94.  
  95. effortlessly, like a kitten would a ball of yarn and then turned his attention back to Aries, daring
  96.  
  97. him to approach.
  98.  
  99. Aries gawked at what had happened.  Beowulf the invincible, Beowulf the mighty had fallen.  
  100.  
  101. The Entei hadn’t even broken a sweat either, and he seemed ready for more.  Aries clenched
  102.  
  103. his fists at his side, angry welling up inside of him.  [i]How dare this fucking [b]thing[/b] do that
  104.  
  105. to his Pokemon![/i]
  106.  
  107. He bit down on his lip to try and quell the fury that was growing in him.  He didn’t [i]really[/i]
  108.  
  109. want to fight the Entei, not one on one anyway.  That would be suicide, and he wasn’t that
  110.  
  111. close to the edge yet.  He had—or at least hoped he had—people back at the base that cared
  112.  
  113. about him.
  114.  
  115. Licking his lips, he returned Beowulf to his Pokeball, and grabbed the next one, tossing it on the
  116.  
  117. ground.  Out popped his battle-hungry Fearow, Attila.  “Go.” On his commander’s words, Attila
  118.  
  119. rushed at this new Pokemon, attempting to stab its eye out with his horn.
  120.  
  121. The Entei was much smarter than Attila had expected, and snatched the bird by the beak.  He
  122.  
  123. closed down with powerful jaws, slamming the bird into the ground once, twice.  Attila was
  124.  
  125. then released, and collapsed to the ground, in maddening pain.  Aries returned him silently, his
  126.  
  127. lips twitching into an enraged snarl.
  128.  
  129. He had but one Pokemon left that would even pose a moderate threat to the Entei.  Did he
  130.  
  131. want this?  Not necessarily.  No.  What Aries wanted to do was attack the Pokemon himself.  If
  132.  
  133. you want something done right, you’ve gotta do it yourself!
  134.  
  135. All common sense was thrown out of the window as Aries reached to his side, his hand closing
  136.  
  137. around the cold steel of the gun he always had on his person.  The weapon had never failed
  138.  
  139. him before, nor would it fail him now.
  140.  
  141. He drew it and pointed it at the Entei, storming toward the Pokemon.  He would kill it now and
  142.  
  143. be done with this madness.  Yes, that was what he would do.
  144.  
  145. [i]Aries, stop.[/i] A voice invaded his head.  A new voice, not the one that encouraged him to
  146.  
  147. kill; it was strange and it surprised him.  The gun clattered from his hand, landing harmlessly on
  148.  
  149. the ground.  The Pokemon began to approach him, fiery paw prints being left on the ground as
  150.  
  151. he did so.
  152.  
  153. [i]Yes, I know who you are.  My name is Remus,[i] The Entei spoke calmly, benevolently.  Aries
  154.  
  155. reached out unconsciously, reaching for the cloud-like substance on his back.  Remus watched
  156.  
  157. his hand, following it with his red eyes.
  158.  
  159. Aries, seeing that the Entei wasn’t fighting him, snatched the cloud into his grasp.  Almost
  160.  
  161. immediately afterward, his mind was flushed of all the hatred and anger that had been festering
  162.  
  163. in the back of it for ages now.  He was at peace with himself again, for the first time in far too
  164.  
  165. long.
  166.  
  167. “T-Thank you.” Aries stammered, having no idea what words he could use to truly convey his
  168.  
  169. gratitude.  Remus nodded, pulling away from Aries; and the boy shook himself, doing his best to
  170.  
  171. stop the shock.  Remus licked one of his paws, watching the boy with a look of amusement on
  172.  
  173. his face.  He didn't really understand why humans thought that the Legendaries ability to clear
  174.  
  175. their minds was such a big deal, but he [i]had[/i] been watching Aries for a while now and
  176.  
  177. knew that the boy had some serious mental issues.
  178.  
  179. [i]Do you wish to go for a ride?[/i]  Remus asked, nudging Aries' hand.  Aries stared, unsure if
  180.  
  181. the Pokemon meant a ride [i]with[/i] him, or a ride [i]on[/i] him.  Either way, Aries was nervous,
  182.  
  183. but it would be worse if he were to ride on the Pokemon.  Remus shook his head, the great
  184.  
  185. mane moving back and forth with his motions and he smiled.  [i]On my back.[/i]
  186.  
  187. Aries nodded again, slowly taking the cloud into both of his handds the lifting himself onto the
  188.  
  189. great, lion-like Pokemon's back.  [i]Ready?[/i]  Remus questioned, and the youth gave a nod.  
  190.  
  191. With that, the volcano Pokemon took off, jumping this way and that, the ride being rougher to
  192.  
  193. Aries than the time he had crashed a helicopter.
  194.  
  195. "WHAT ARE YOU DOING?!" Aries demanded, feeling like he had been stabbed in the back by
  196.  
  197. this Pokemon.  He had trusted him, and now he was trying to kill him!  It wasn't fair!
  198.  
  199. [i]Just hold on, Aries,[/i] Remus murmured into his mind, and he picked up his pace.  Aries
  200.  
  201. grunted, but his months of training with the Chosen had built up unparalled amount of muscle
  202.  
  203. and the Entei was finding it much harder to throw him than he had anticipated.
  204.  
  205. Within a few minutes, Remus decided it would be best to give up on throwing him, and so he
  206.  
  207. did, coming to a stop atop a cliff that looked out over the ocean.  He leaned down and Aries
  208.  
  209. slid off.
  210.  
  211. "What the hell is your problem?!" He shouted, glaring at the Entei.  "Were you trying to [i]kill
  212.  
  213. me?![/i]"  Remus just pushed at his hand again.
  214.  
  215. [i]I've chosen correctly.[/i] The same soft voice invaded Aries' mind again and he looked at the
  216.  
  217. Entei with a clueless, blank look.  [i]What I am talking about is unimportant.  All you need to
  218.  
  219. know is that you have been chosen.[/i]
  220.  
  221. Aries bit back a retort, then closed his eyes, rubbing his temples.  "Whatever.  Can I go home?"
  222.  
  223.  His eyes remained closed and he breathed deeply through his nose, exhaling through his
  224.  
  225. mouth.  Keeping himself calm was important.
  226.  
  227. [i]Yes, but I have to come.[/i] Remus nudged a Pokeball on Aries' belt, trapping himself in the
  228.  
  229. ball. The ball rocked, and Aries was too shocked to stop it before it clicked.  The man shook
  230.  
  231. himself and released Remus, climbing back onto his back.
  232.  
  233. The Entei started to run, galloping through the plains on a highspeed run back to the base.  
  234.  
  235. The ease with which the Pokemon went to the base frightened Aries; because it showed that
  236.  
  237. the Pokemon had been there many a time before.
  238.  
  239. Aries slid off the Entei a few hundred yards before he entered the Chosen terroritory, and
  240.  
  241. returned the Pokemon.  He would jog the rest of the way, and then he would show Brandon
  242.  
  243. his newest companion.
  244.  
  245. Oh, Aries was a happy--if curious--boy indeed.
