Mikael was restless. He looked over at Laura, sleeping in Bryan's arms, before he quietly got up and crept out of the room.
Mikael froze in place, then turned. "Hey, Emmy..."
The little emolga looked worried as she flew onto her spot on the zoroark's shoulder. "You alright?"
Mikael turned his head away. "No..."
Emmy gave Mikael a loving look and tried to pull his head back towards her. "Talk to me, love..."
Mikael shivered and she could clearly see his fear. "I don't want to die tomorrow..."
She reached up and grabbed his ear. "You're not going to die. Don't even think it."
Mikael glared at Emmy. "If we lose... It won't be that grumpy camerupt who dies..."
Emmy pulled hard on the illusion fox's ear, causing him to yelp in pain. "IF you lose. I may not like that ball of anger, but I don't want her to die either." She climbed onto his head so she could look him straight in the eyes. "
Don't start talking like this is goodbye and stuff. You're strong."
Mikael smiled sadly at Emmy. "Okay..." He sighed. "Emmy? Could you find our favourite little oshawott?"
The sky squirrel smiled back. "Pretty sure I can. Why? You want to talk to her?"
Mikael nodded. "Yeah... Just in case..." He grimaced when she flinched and raised his arm out straight. "Can you do that?"
Emmy patted Mikael's fluffy head. "S-sure." She used Mikael's raised arm as a runway and launched herself into the air. "Be right back."
Mikael waited until she had gone out of sight before he pulled Bryan's tablet, Sully's ultraball and a couple of TMs out of his mane. He released Sully, before tapping away at the tablet. "Hey."
Sully blinked, then scowled as she realized who released her. "What do you want..."
Mikael raised his arms defensively. "Hey, hey... I'm not here to cause trouble, honest."
Sully snorted in contempt, as her humps began to smoke. "You always cause trouble where ever you go... "
Mikael growled, but returned to tapping away at the tablet. "I have a plan for tomorrow..."
Sully pressed her head against Mikael's body and shoved him into the wall. "Two of us are dead because of you and your dumb idea..."
Mikael snarled. "It's not my fault that we are stuck here fighting for our lives! Blame the legendary who runs this place, not me!" He glared at Sully. "Do you want to live or not?"
Sully simmered for a minute, then huffed. "So what's your plan?"
Mikael held a TM in front so she can read 'TM 68' on it. "First, how do you feel about a new attack?"
"DAMN THIS GRASS!"
Mikael snickered to himself as he quietly stalked a cursing Sully, taking care to blend into the tall grass. He glanced back at Laura, standing outside the terrain, then turned his attention back onto the eruption pokemon.
"DAMN IT, DAMN IT, DAMN IT!
" Sully cursed as she stamped the grass flat. RUSTLE!
A pink and cream ear poked out of the grass ahead of Mikael, before it quickly vanished. He quietly followed it and used the grass to trip an audino up, making her fall flat on her face with a loud THUMP!
"DAMN-" Sully whirled at the sound of the thump. "Found you." She stamped the ground, her earth power barely missing the audino, who rolled out of the way.
Mikael snickered as Sully stormed after the audino and used grass knot again to trip her up again. He heard a slight rustle behind him, just managing to dig away before the audino's monferno teammate could land an attack, and hid underground for a moment.
Mikael erupted from the earth, hitting the audino before he skipped to Sully's side. "Having fun?" He dodged, narrowly avoiding a flame wheel. "Isn't it a bit warm here?"
Sully fumed, her breathing laboured. "F#@& no!" She staggered, feeling the effects of a toxic, before launching herself at the audino with her new attack, giga impact, just missing thanks to her slowed movements.
Mikael panted, using double team constantly dodge the flame wheels and actrobatics. "It is pretty warm here..."
Suddenly, Laura's voice rings out. "MIKAEL! SULLY! The grass is on fire!"
Mikael turned, caught the smell of smoke. "Damn..." He looked up and realized that the frozen sun was even brighter. He raced to Sully's side again, stopped and suddenly got an idea. "HEY SULLIVAN!"
Sully whirled on Mikael. "WHAT!
Mikael tripped their opponents, transformed into the monferno and waved his butt mockingly. "You couldn't hit a Wailord if it floated in front of you!" BOOM!
Sully humps exploded, sending fire and lava cascading all over the arena, forcing Mikael to dig to dodge.
"YOU BETTER COME UP HERE MIKAEL!"
Mikael snickered underground. "So worth it."
