"That looked like a set-up move," James explained. "That Acid Spray in and of itself didn't hurt, but the next move probably will."
"Ow ow ow OWWWWW!" Gardevoir screamed within my head as the acid burned her skin. The attack didn't do too much damage, but it looked extremely painful. I had spilled some weak Hydrochloric acid on my hand once, and it was not a pleasant sensation.
All of a sudden my skin felt like someone was taking a huge hot iron and placing it against my skin. I winced and tightly grabbed my upper arms, trying to concentrate through the pain. I knew that nothing was actually happening to my body. The emotional bond that Gardevoir and I had together was so strong that we often shared even our physical pain with the other. It was the downside to being able to communicate so well with her, but it was worth it.
I looked at James, who I figured might become concerned. "I-I'm fine" I said dismissively. Turning back to Trubbish, I felt the burning sensation subside. Gardevoir seemed to be less affected as well, as she stood up straight, her eyes starting to glow slightly. "You alright?" I asked.
"Yeah, I'm good. It just hurt a lot that's all." she replied. She looked down at her white dress. "Aww, man, this is going to take weeks to get out..." she whined, referring to the acid burns in her dress.
"Alright, alright, now's not the time to worry about that" I replied, ignoring the snort of disapproval she made. "You did make sure to set up an offensive attack with that Future Sight, right? I asked.
"Yes..." she replied with an exasperated tone. I swear I caught a glimmer of an eye roll behind the blue glow.
"Okay, good, Let's counter that Acid Spray. Lead off with Captivate (OOC: Trubbish is Male), and lets follow up that Future Sight attack with a little Confusion. We're trying to capture this guy, so lets not go all out on this guy alright?"
"Yep, no problem boss," she replied with a sarcastic flair. Her demeanor completely changed, however, as she twirled around, her dress billowing out. She turned her feminine charms on to the max as she stopped and gave a cute wink towards the poor Trubbish. Like a black widow though, she immediately took on an aggressive stance, using her mind to attempt to lift the Trubbish into the air, its body covered in a blue aura, and send it flying backwards into a wall.
