    Eck...looks like he jogged her memory there, unless she shivered to a breeze he didn't feel. He was going to apologize when she offered that playful suggestion of hers...she was giggling at a time like this? She was...Wally couldn't help but smile now. She was always smiling, and it always made him smile, like it was a contagious disease. She could always make people smile. So, he shook her hand, his own still trembling a little from crying. "K-kay, deal. Just..." He squeezed her hand a bit, looking down a bit. "...promise not to leave me behind. I don't wanna be alone..." She knew he had breathing troubles. The air was so much cleaner here, now that the city was dead, but he was still frail. She might leave him in the dust, and if he lost her...he didn't want to think about that.

    May's smile softened, and she patted his shoulder reassuringly. "You know I wouldn't leave you. We need each other, you know." She brightened, knowing smiling and acting happy was the only thing keeping her from completely breaking down. "Did you grab your inhaler? Or was it...?" Her eyes dulled a bit as she cut herself off from saying 'like the Capsules'. If her Pokemon were gone, his surely were too - and the thought of little Ruru, gone forever, cut through her defenses a bit too much.

    Wally shivered and snapped his eyes shut, feeling a cold trickle of ice crawl up his spine. Like the pokeballs...he could practically hear her say that. She might as well have; it hurt just as much. He could care less about his inhaler; it didn't even matter. If the air was as good as it was now in a place like Petalburg, he might never need it again. But he wasn't focused on that. The pokeballs...Ruru...his babygirl. Little Ruru. Gone forever. Just like that, totally out of the blue. No reason, no goodbyes, no...anything. Just up and vanished, along with the rest of his life and the world around it. Everything he knew was gone, and the best friend he'd ever had was gone right along with it. "I'm sorry," he muttered, looking down at the ground, feeling the hot sting of more tears gathering up in his eyes. "I-I said...I'd take good care of her, a-and she's..." He shuddered, shoulders jerking. "I...thought I'd t-take g-good...c-c-care of...them..." His shoulders jerked again, and at first he thought something was going on with him, like a seirure or something, when he realized he was crying. But not like last time; that was out of panic. Hysteria. This was...heartbreak. All his friends, his pokemon...all gone...he never got to say goodbye. He thought he'd be with them forever. That happy little giggle of Ruru's ran through his head, remembering how happy and cheerful she always was, bubbly and giggling twenty four hours a day...it felt just like yesterday he last saw her, and now she was gone. Everyone was gone. Somehow, he felt like he failed her; poor Ruru...she must have sat there in her pokeball, wondering what happened, until the circuitry of the pokeball failed and the pokemon inside simply ceased to exist...he failed her. Poor Ruru. It was his fault. He failed Ruru. She never got to see him again...never got to evolve, like she wanted to. "I-I'm s-s-sorry..."

    May jerked forward, frowning and tilting Will's chin up with a concerned expression. It softened a bit as she remembered her own team. All of them, from her tiny Amulet, to the goofy Herman, to the kind and motherly Tigerlily... all gone. Every one of them, wiped from existence like they'd never lived, never breathed, never smiled, laughed, loved or lost. No more would Gane do extravagent twirls while flying, Herman wouldn't bark every time she walked through the door, and Amulet would never again purr and curl up next to her while she read. Just - nothing. She fought the burning tears in her eyes formed by a mixture of panic, despair, loss and frustration, and locked eyes with Wally. "Listen to me now," she whispered, voice shaky but determined. "You didn't let them down. Nothing you could have done could have changed any of this." She blinked, smiling sadly. "Alright?"

    Of course, Wally didn't believe her at first. This had to be his fault somehow. If he hadn't put them back in their pokeballs...he always left them out to sleep. He hated leaving them cooped up in those thigns, but his mother always made him put them away...the one time he didn't sneak them out at night, and they died in those damned spheres. Just...gone. Spent the rest of their lives in the places he tried to keep them out of the most he could. How wasn't that his fault? Wally blinked and felt hot tears trickle down his face, locking eyes with May. He missed Ruru. She was always his cuddlebuddy, and he carried her around like a security blanket...he needed Ruru. She was what made him strong. All his friends were gone...he couldn't take it. He felt his lip tremble, pinched his eyes shut again, and pressed his face against May's chest, once again starting to cry. Not as many tears came out this time, having already cried some before, but he still sobbed, mourning everyone he'd lost. Whatever happened turned his entire life upside down and took away everyone he--they; they were in this together--ever cared about. He'd never felt so heartbroken in his entire life. He knew what it was like to be sad...but nothing like this.

    This realization, she could see it bloom in his eyes, like a deadly fire fueled by guilt and anguish. It hit her like a punch to the gut, the complete and total loss of everyone in the world - everyone in both of their worlds - was gone. Suddenly, the panic was gone, replaced by a never-ending pit of nothing that stretched as far as she could see. She closed her eyes and rested her chin on Wally's shoulder, bottom lip trembling with her short, panicked gasps. This was too much. It was all too much - but then, she couldn't be so selfish. She fought the almost welcomed darkness, slaying the fuzziness stuffing her ears and mouth that felt like cotton balls. She couldn't give up, not when Wally was counting on her. So what if it was her fault that her family Herman Gane Tigerlily Amulet Rosco Melvin was gone? She had something bigger than herself to live for. She wasn't living for one, she was living for two.

    And that was enough. For now. "C'mon, Wally. We'll get through this, one way or another."

    Wally had a good cry, letting out all the grief and horrible realization as he could in the time alloted, before clamping the nozzle shut and turning off his firehose of emotion. That was enough for now...enough tears. Now was the time for survival. They would certainly have enough time to mourn later...and it would certainly take more than one cry to mourn everything effectively. There was simply too much to cover in one sitting. Wally wiped his face with his sleeve a bit, drying off the moisture that he could, nodding to May. "...kay." Necessities had to come first: shelter. There wasn't much around here that would prove very suitable, hence his suggestion for the gym. It was built to last and to sustain damage without buckling. It was built to house battles between some seriously powerful pokemon, after all...he just hoped it wouldn't pain May to be remind her of her father. She practically worshipped the man. Supplies to be gather later...right now, Wally just wanted to sit down somewhere sturdy and...he didn't know. He had no idea what he wanted; just that May being there made it feel better. He clung to her hand tightly, as if assuring that she wasn't going to slip away, leaning into her a little bit while he could. This affection, wonderful feeling though it was, wasn't boudn to last too much longer...

    May nodded shortly, turning and tugging Wally's hand gently as she headed in the direction of the gym - a route ingrained in her mind like the ability to walk. "If we start now we'll have more time to get food and water. Do you think the old grocer's would have some? I remember they carried a canned goods section." If she kept talking, she wouldn't have to focus on the bones of the houses that had once lined the street with joyful warmth spilling from their windows. A lone Starly cawed at them, glaring angrily and taking off with an offended air.
    Arceus, but all traces of humanity in this place was dead and gone.

    Wally nodded slightly, wincing at the sound of that Starly. The pokemon certainly didn't seem to recognize them...humanity had all but been completely forgotten, even by the race of creatures that were both enslaved and befriended by them all those years ago...how long had it been, anyway? The lack of knowledge was complete torture; what he wouldn't give to know something! "Maybe...if nothing's broken the seals, it should be good for years..." Hundreds had passed, by the looks of things. Could a jar of preservatives really last that long without going rancid? Hopefully the cans didn't rust or break...they might be going all natural for a while, if they did.
    He didn't know about May, but Wally didn't feel especially talkative, head hanging slightly as he looked down at May's feet, walking along so as not to step on them, looking rather downcast. Well, at the prospect of never seeing the ones he loved and cared the most, who wouldn't be? If anyone was truly happy after having this happen to them, something in their head wasn't right. You just couldn't overlook this sort of thing...Wally couldn't, anyway.

    Honestly, this whole air of devastation and pure nothingness was making it hard to concentrate. She sighed, running her free hand through her hair and shifting her hairband awkwardly. God, what was happening? There was nothing lft, nothing - and getting off that train of thought, what if there was no food? No water? What if that was all there was - nothing? "If nothing's broken the seals," she muttered, eyes darkening as she struggled not to boil over. One question bounced around in her mind, over and over like a demented bird flying with a crooked wing -
    What if this was man's fault? Was that why they were all gone, leaving only Wally, her, and nature alive? Why were they alive, anyway?
    Why weren't they dead?
