"Well, going by observation, I'd say that side loses, since as soon as he went down, everyone else went almost obsequious." Calvin said. "He was actually almost too easy."
"Calvin. You are a Lucario hybrid. Bishop's a Bisharp hybrid. Bisharp has a quad weakness to Fighting-type attacks. Combine that with a STAB, and what happens?" Amelia stated flatly, left eye twitching.
"Calvin, when did you become a hybrid?" Joshua asked with a raised eyebrow.
"Might I say that no one said anything about the fact that I came back alive." Adam deadpanned before looking around. "You guys are rude."
"You could have been more sociable. Good way to get people to notice you. Besides, there is such a thing as academic attendance reports." Alma suggested.
"I was punished for my insubordination." Amelia said, pointing to her faded scars on her face.
"After the shit people have put us through over the years, we learned that you can't trust anyone." Calvin stated bluntly. "Opening up to people was a mistake that nearly cost our lives. So we gauge people from a distance to decide of they're suitable. Maybe we're paranoid, though. Maybe society's problems are all in our heads. But how would I know? I'm just an unfortunate orphan."
"Alright, I think we've waited long enough. Roserade, would you wake her up? Everyone else, stand by." Camille said, snapping her fingers and pointing to Reese's sleeping form. Roserade, pointed at flower at Reese and released a sweet aroma from it. Gardevoir went to work setting up an Imprison field, while the others remained alert, or as alert as they would be while Roserade was using Aromatherapy.
"Well, there are some honest-to-good people out there." Alma said, a frown on her face.
Reese stirred to life, moaning as she tried to get up. She was wide awake when she couldn't move.
"I know. I happen to be standing in a room full of 'em." Calvin said nonchalantly.
"And the sleeping princess awakes!" Camille said in an overly dramatic tone. "Did you enjoy your slumber? I must say, you looked like a little doll. Oh, and don't worry about the bindings. As long as you're a good girl and give us your full cooperation, things won't get ugly. Got it? Good." She walked around the bed, sporting a smile that dared defiance. "Now, let's start off with your name, hmm?"
"D'aw, thank you!" Alma said, going over and tightly hugged Calvin.
"Reese." The Reiuniclus hybrid said softly, her skin taking a greenish tint. She winced in pain when the restraints were tightened. "Don't try to slip out." Chloe said with a firm tone.
"Well I'm an orphan too." Adam deadpanned at Calvin before turning around and beginning to walk towards the next room. He winced a little and looked down at his shoulder, the effects of using level 2 were beginning to affect his body but he couldn't let the others noticed. Finally Adam reached the other elevator. "Come on then."
Maria groaned and awoke to find herself inside a dark room. 'Where are we?" Maria wondered before turning to Piper.
The attacks had fainted Beartic, being too much for it to bear so Perry returned his Pokemon except Gardevoir and Gallade, keeping them up for protection he ran towards the next floor and arrived where everyone else was. "Guys!" Perry called out reaching to Adam and the others. "Beartic's down, tell me we are getting closer" Perry asked as his Pokemon checked around for any hidden dangers
Piper only stirred, still not quite conscious in the waking world, images in her sleep reminding her of the day Umbreon had been taken from her. Reaching out to save Maria, Umbreon distracting the woman so Piper could do the job done, and the next time they saw each other was a battle against Umbreon. "Umbreon.." Piper muttered out loud in her sleep.
Calvin would have replied, but this required oxygen, which he was unable to obtain. He just stood still and reached into his pocket, finding a button on his Pokénav to auditorily convey his will to breathe.
"Strike one, Reese." Camille said sharply. "Now, I want some info on your boss."
"Yeah." Joshua nodded his head before walking into the elevator. "There's only one more room left."
Alma burst out laughing, letting Calvin go seconds before the alarm ran out.
"He's untouchable. He has the power of an Alakazam and the body of a Metagross. He will mess with your mind and you'll be none the wiser." Reese said in a terrified tone.
