Chapter Three - Part One
Deino - They cannot see, so they tackle and bite to learn about their surroundings. Their bodies are covered in wounds.
The red and white sphere flew across the grassy battlefield, bursting open in midair. A white light seeped out in the form of a plasma-like substance. It formed the shape of a small, quadripedal creature with a scruffy mane and a sharp head spike. The plasma flew off in several white sparks, leaving behind the solid black and dark blue creature... also known as me.
My name is Seven, and as you can probably tell I'm a Deino. I was captured a few months ago by my trainer, Rose. She's nice and all, but she just doesn't get that I don't like fighting. I end up in more pain than it's worth, bleeding, tired and sore.
"Seven, use Headbutt!" Rose commanded. Reluctantly, I lowered my head and charged my mysterious foe. I caught a whiff of apple... meaning my foe was an Emolga. Concentrating on where the smell was strongest, I charged, breathing heavily and on the verge of tears. I felt myself slam into fur and knew I had hit my target. Both of us came crashing to the ground, driving all the air out of my body. What felt like mud flew onto my face, covering me in grimy dirt that seeped into my skin and itched terribly.
Emolga let out a pitiful whimper and said no more, obviously unconscious. In the distance I heard the referee's whistle, signaling the end of the match. I staggered over to Rose, taking deep breaths to calm myself. I was bleeding a bit on my left front leg from my rough landing, and a thin coating of mud covered my face. Rose lifted me up, giddy with victory, until she saw me.
"Poor thing. You're a fighter though, you know that, Seven?"
Yes. A fighter.
Exactly what I don't want to be.
