I awoke with a start. I was fearful and tired. "Where am I?" I look around a bit confuse but it could not be help. I try to remember what I was doing here but nothing came to mind. I can’t remember who I was or where I came from. All I is that my name is Wayna. I look around. "I'm in some kind of forests." There was trees everywhere. I then spotted a lake and felt like I could use a drink.
I drank some water slowly and yawn. I look into the water and saw my reflection. I look down into the water and saw that I was a Fennekin. “Oh man! I’m a Pokémon!” I look around and found saw no one. “How can this happen?”
Just then three Beheeyem came out of nowhere. They all look at each other and then come towards me. “Excuses me?” I ask them with my ears back. “Who are you three?” they then attack me and I yelp in pain. I then turn to run with three Beheeyem chasing me.
As I ran I bump into a Nuzleaf. “What are you all in a fuss for?” He ask me I look back fearfully. I jump back in fear at how a Pokémon was talking to me but. It made sense I’m a Pokémon now. I should be able to understand them. He jump back at my excitement. “Whoa! What did I do to you?! Oh sorry. I’m Nardhon.” He was trying to calm me down. “It’s alright now, so just calm down.”
I then calm down with my ears back. I then turn around to see the three Beheeyem chasing me. My ears went back as they attack me. I jump out of one way. “Whoa! What in the world?! Eek I’m scared!”
We then ran off into the forest. We ran for bit in fear, then Nardhon stop in his Tracks. “Oh no… Aren’t that once of them Mystery Dungeons up ahead?” We then heard our pursuers behind us both. Nardhon look up set and sigh. “Ahhh! There ain’t no other way to go!”
We then ran in to the Mystery Dungeons. We face many tuff Pokémon in the Dungeon. He took out a few and then he shown me how to do it. We were moving so fast we did not get to know each other. He led the way thru for me and for that I was happy. We went deeper and deeper into the forest fighting all types of Pokémon. To be honest if we were not being chase it would have been fun.
We finely ran out of the Dungeon and were both tired. Nardhon was struggling to breathe. “I’m a struggling…*Paint paint* I reckon we should have us a little break…” We then turn around in fear. “But… Them fellers that attacked us all of a sudden… They’re a kind of Pokémon called Beheeyem, I do believe…” He then growl at me and I step back a bit. “What are they following you for? Did you cause them some kind of trouble? Why, your childish pranks even got me caught up in your mess young lady! I reckon!”
“Childish prank?” I said a little upset. I then think about it so it can make sense what he said. ‘Do I look like a kid somehow? Maybe I look like a child to Pokémon. But I guess it don’t matter.
“My Name is Wayna.” I spoke with my ears back. “I don’t know who I’m at all or how I got here. I don’t know why those Pokémon want me or why they attack me. In fact I’m not even a Pokémon. I know for a fact that I’m a human.”
“Hm? You reckon you don’t know why they were attacking you?” Nardhon spoke crossing his arms. “You ain’t got no memories at all?! Can’t remember anything but your name huh? You’re saying you’re a human Hu. That all you reckon you can remember?” it took him a moment but he was surprise. “Wait. What?! A-a-a human?!” Before he can say anything the Beheyem were coming. “I reckon that’s the light from them Beheeyem!” He then growl as I look back at him. “I reckon we ought to get to running!”
We then ran into the other half of the forest. We fight wave after wave of Pokémon we did not talk or anything. Nardhon was very maternal with me. Thanks to him I even learn ember. Somehow we made it out. I was thankful.
Nardhon was panting trying to catch his breath. “I think we done lost them Beheeyem… We lost ‘em…I reckon. Whoo” He then fall down on his bottom. “I sure am beat! But I calculate we got away from them trouble makers! Phew…” he then got up and growl at me. “Consarn it! You sure did drag me into a fine mess!”
"I didn’t mean for it to happen." I said looking down. "I don’t know why they attack me. They came out of nowhere. I am sorry."
He growl for a bit then sigh. "Well I guess it cannot be help. Alright I’m gone. I have to get home. Good luck kid. I got to get going. I bet you got to get going to."
“Um ok..." I spoke looking down. "I guess i got to get home, if I had one."
He began to walk off leaving me there. I look down sadly he then stop in his tracks. He turn around and look at me. Nardhon growls and ran over to me. “I just can’t help it. I can’t let a child get hurt or leave them alone. How about you come live with me child?”
I then smile. “Sure I would like that.”
“Yeah? I reckon we ought to get moving’.” Nardhon then turn around and pointed to the hills. “My village is just over yonder.” He then turn back to me. “Now, it is a fair bit of a walk, so… I reckon you might better stick real close to me and don’t go getting lost!”
“Ok.” I spoke with my ears up.
And so Wayna ended up heading to Nardhon village together with him. Traveling down deep Valleys and up over rugged hills… Camping out beneath the stars when night fell upon them… until…at long last…
“Oh! There it is! You can see it now!” Nardhon spoke with a smile. “I reckon we’re finally here! You see that there lake? That there little village on the shore is where I live… Serene Village.” Nardhon then turn to me with a smile. “Now listen I’m a plant eater. As a meat eater you have to eat meat. I suggest I take you to a Mightyena. He knows how to hunt for magic karps. We’re nearly there now! I reckon we should push.”
“Alright I guess learning how to hunt is important. To be honest I look forward to it.” I spoke with a nod of my head. “Now we should get going.” We then head off to the village.
And Wayna, once a Human and now brought to this world as a Pokémon… With no memory of what had been left behind, came to Serene Village. To the Village where Wayna is destined to meet a certain Pokémon… Who will become the partner of a lifetime in the adventures ahead.
Once we were at the Village I brought my ears back and look at Nardhon. “I reckon we’re here.” He turn to the little house in front of us. “This here’s my house.”
We walk into him home. I look around the little home and smile. The home was a two part. One part was wide open with a platform and a bed. He walk me over to the other part that was very cozy looking. “This way…Here you are.” He then turn to me. “You can bunk down in this room for now. It may not be much, but take it as you will. And, well… as for the rest of it… What do you reckon you’re gonna do?” I look down sadly and look back at him. “I can’t wondering why them Beheeyem were coming after you like that… But all the wondering in the world won’t give me nothing but a headache… We could get some answers it an’ when your memory coms back. But until then, you can just stay here. Sound good?”
“Yes I I would like to learn how to hunt as soon as possible.” I spoke with a smile. I stated wagging my tail. “When can that happen?”
“Soon I will need to ask her first. Alright she should tell you how to live as a Fennekin. She should teach you about cultures and ideas of Fennekin, Delphox and Braixen. To tell you the truth I know very little about them.” Nardhon spoke rubbing his head a little embarrass. He then stop rubbing his head and got a bit serious. “I wouldn’t tell the other folk in the village about them Beheeyem, though. Might scare ’em off.”
“I guess you’re right.” I spoke with my ears back. “I don’t want the village upset.”
“Leeetttsssseeee.” Nardhon began to think. “That right. You’re about school age from the looks of you… So I reckon I should get you enrolled at the Village school. People wonder even more about you if you aren’t going to school at your age. I reckon I’ll go an’ get that all took care of right away. So don’t you stick one toe outside this house till I get back, you hear?”
“Yes.” I said with a nod of my head. He then left me there and I look around the room.
Before he could leave completely he turn to me again. He wanted me to make sure I understand. “You hear? You’re not to go outside. Not even by mistake or nothin’!”
I not my head and he was gone. I walk around the little home and found that it was a very nice home. Well grounded, made out of wood. I walk next to the window and a gash of blue fur went past it.
“Gasp! What was that noise?!” I spoke with my ears back and tail between my legs. I walk up to the window and a big shadow was next to it. “Yelp!” I went in fear and ran away from it. As soon as it came it was gone. I heard the crunch of a bush and more crunches. “There’s something outside… Could it be those Beheeyem? I thought I’d lost them once and for all, but…” I had no choice I needed to check and make sure. I knew what Nardhon would be upset but I had to see. I just hope he would not be too mad.
I walk outside and look around. “Nothing strange so far.” I spoke with my ears back. “Nothing out here. I can’t let my guard down! If I’m not careful, then…” Behind me a Riolu step from the bush.
“I knew it!” the Riolu spoke with a gleam in his eyes.
I turn around with my ears back and tail between my legs. “Augh!” I scream in fear.
The little Riolu seem not effected by my fear. “I knew my eyes weren’t playing tricks on me!” he spoke happily. “I totally saw you go inside with Mr. Nardhon just now! Where are you from? What’s your name?”
I look a little bit confuse by this and try my best to answer. “Er,well…My name…” Before I could answer he spoke.
“My name is Red!” He stated happily. “I live nearby, with my old pops!” He then pointed to the brown and blue high lights house behind Nardhon home. “That house right there! So where are you from? You’re not SERIOUSLY Mr. Nardhon kid or anything, are you? Like that could ever happen! Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha! Oh, Right! But this is your first time here, isn’t it? In that case, I’ll show you around the place! Come on!”
He grab my front paws and drag me along. I knew I was going to get into trouble when Nardhon found out. As he drag me he spoke the whole way. “What did you say your name was? Or-wait. Did I ask you that already? I didn’t ask you, did I?”
“Um My name is Wayna.” I spoke walking next to him.
He ran in front of me with a smile. “I see! So you’re Wayna, Hu?” He spoke with excitement. “Sorry about that! I went and asked and never even gave you a chance to answer!...Hmm? Am I annoying? You’re totally thinking about how annoying I am right now, Yeah? Well, quit it! Sheesh! Gimme a break, you big miltank! Heh! See what I did there? A little joke? With the Miltank? HA HA HAHAHAHAHA!” I was a bit embarrass. This guy sure was energetic. “Which leads us to…” he turn around with his paws in the air. “Ta-daaa! Here she is! Serene Village! And her heart is this plaza here!” He turn back to me. “It may not look like much, but we’ve got most of the basic facilities here. There Is a Deposit box. You can put your Items and money there. There a Kecleon’s shop. You can get all sorts of items there. Probably too much to take in all at once, so… I’ll tell you about each facility in turn! Let’s see, to start with, we’ve got-”
“There you are! Red!” We turn to see a Lombre by the name Loemen. He walk up with an upset look on his face. “So this is where you’ve been! You’re the one who tramped all through my lotus pond, aren’t you?!”
“I-it…it w-wasn’t like that!” Red spoke with fear. “I was just trying to have a little adventure!”
Red then turn to leave me, to go on the run. He then stop on his tracks. “Red! Stop! Right! Zere!” An angry Hippopotas came down the path. His name was Hithaerdaer. “You! You are ze one that vent into my cave, aren’t you?! And vat more! You took Ze treasure I had hidden inside, didn’t you?!”
Red look even more fearful. “N-no… I was just exploring a dungeon, and I happened to…uh…Well, you know how it is! You gotta have a reward after clearing a dungeon, right?”
Red try to run the other way but was stop in his tracks. “Stop right there! Red!”
“Pop?!” Red scream in more fear.
“Oh OI’ man Carracosta Calemirdaer!” Loemen spoke with a bit of fear.
“This where you’ve been loitering, child?” Calemirdaer he growl at red. “What about your chores back home, eh? Playing hooky again to wander around, eh?”
Red look even more fearful. “No, pops! I have a real reason this time…”
“And I know you’ve been snacking on Oran Berries from my field again!” Calemirdaer snap at him. “You’re in so much trouble!”
Red then looks upset. “I have not!”
Calemirdaer became even more upset. “I want the truth from you, child!” He growl stepping a bit closer to Red.
“Yeah, I did eat them.” Red spoke happily. “They were delicious!”
I was brought back at how forth coming Red was. Oh man he sure was laid back or a complete trouble maker. I could not decide.
I then notice some other Villagers. “Hey I see Red over there!” everyone turn to see the villagers. “Everybody! Red been sighted!”
“Gahhhhhhh!” Red scream in fear and then ran off.
Calemirdaer then growl. “Don’t you dare run? We’ll catch you!”
Soon there was a whole mob after Red. “Oh man what do I do now? I bet I’m in trouble when I get home still I should check this place out some. Sigh.” As I walk around I notice a Deerling and a Shelment having an argument.
“What Goomy did?!” The Deerling spoke with worry. I soon found out this Deerling name was Daerion. She was pink with two antlers.
“Yeah, well, he insisted on going…” Thirisdir spoke none caringly.
“No more excuses, Thirisdir!” Daerion spoke with her ears back. She was growling upset. “Tell me the truth! You and that Pancham Pephennas Pushed him into this, didn’t you?”
“That not fair, Daerion!” Thirisdir snarl upset. “He’s the one who said he wanted to go! How can you stand there and blame us?”
“Quite easily!” Thirisdir growl at him. “You’re the ones who are always teasing that poor Goomy after all! Someday you’re going to go too far, and it’ll be too late for sorries then! You’re going to show me the way there. Right now.”
“Those Kids. So what do I do?” I spoke with my ears back. I should go see what happening. “It’s not like I have anything else to do.” So I follow them.
“What?! He still hasn’t come back out?” Daerion yell in worry.
“Yeah, that’s right.” Pephennas spoke with a smug smile. “It’s been a pretty long time, too. I knew he was a total whip.”
“No surprise there.” Thirisdir spoke agreeing with his friend. “He should just admitted what a wimp he is and kept his mouth shut.”
“But he had to go and talk big, like he could handle this kind of place.” Pephennas spoke with a smile. “He was boasting, saying, I’ll show you!” That what got him into this mess.”
“He’s probably huddled up somewhere in the forest, petrified and sniffing back tears!” Thirisdir agree with his friend again. As if he was some lackey.
They both started laughing at the situation.
“You’re both so mean!” Daerion growl with her ears back. “He’s not even the same age as the rest of us yet!”
“Yeah, but he’s the one who talks big.” Pephennas spoke happily. “He’s got what was coming to him. We figure it’s our job to teach him a little something about how harsh the world is.”
“And if something happens to him in there?” Daerion growl stepping forward. “What are you going to do then, huh? I’m going in after him!”
“No way! You can’t go in there, Deerling!” Thirisdir spoke with fear stepping in her way with Pephennas.
“What if something happened to you?” Pephennas spoke with fear. “We can’t let that happen to our Idol! We’re not letting you step foot in such a dangerous place!”
Daerion growl stepping back. “Are you kidding me? Then fine! You go in after him!”
“Y-you want us to go?” Pephennas spoke with his ears back a bit in fear. He turn around looking into the forest. “Into the foreboding forest? No way. Why would we do that?” He then try to look brave. “I mean, it’s not that we’re scared or anything like that. I don’t want you getting the wrong Idea or whatever. You understand right?”
“Hhm, who is this?” Thirisdir spoke. They all turn and look at me. My ears were back in annoyance. To be honest they were all terrible. Poor Deerling has to deal with them. “We’ve never seen you around here before.”
“Where did you come from?” Pephennas spoke with a smile. “You’re not from the Village.” I said nothing. If I did it would be nothing nice. “What’s the matter? Skitty got your tongue?”
“No one is ever going to understand you if you don’t ever speak up.” Thirisdir pointed out gruffly.
I then made up my mind. I was going in no matter what. Besides as a Pokémon of this world I need to know how to act. “I want to go after the Goomy kid. I’ll be back soon.” I spoke with my ears up. “Just tell me how deep he is.”
“What?!” Pephennas spoke with a shock. “You’ll go in there for us?”
“Not for you!” I growl at him and he was taken back. “I need the practice and there a kid in a dangerous forest.”
“Well ok…” Thirisdir spoke in shock as well. “You sure about this? You do know that this place is, like, super scary, right?”
“W-well… If you really want to go and all, I guess we’re not gonna stand in your way…” Pephennas said with a smug smile. “But it’s no skin off our backs if you get into any trouble in there!”
“Are you sure you’re up to this?” Daerion spoke with her head to the side. I nod my head and she turn to Pephennas. “Where was he trying to go anyway?”
“He shouldn’t have gone that far in.” Pephennas said with a smug look. “There’s a big ol’ piece of paper in the forest, not that far from the entrance…”
Me and Daerion look confuse. “A piece of paper?”
“When Pephennas and I came exploring the forest before, see…” Thirisdir explain with a smug look. “We brought it to use like a trap, so we had something to sit on. Then we got jump by a bunch of scary Pokémon. Man that was awful.” He then smile happily. “You should have seen his face! Remembering it still cracks me up!” Next to him was Pephennas. He was seething rage. “Eyaaaarggghh!”
“Back to the point. So you guys left that paper there, is that it?” Daerion spoke up, hoping to get back to the subject at hand. “And you told him to go after it?”
“Yeah. We told him to find the paper and write him name on it and bring it back.” Pephennas explain getting of his friend. “If he would do that, we said we’d admit that he had some real guts.”
“Alright you see what happing.” She spoke turning to me. “Be careful and good luck.”
I then walk off into the forest. Threw out the whole forest it was full of tuff Pokémon. But I knew if I wanted to survive it had to be done. As I fight on I soon began to get the hang of it. Before I could take a break I notice a Goomy child. “Oh! That must be him!” I spoke, I then walk over to him. He was shaking in the corner. When he saw me he was shock and step back in fear. “Is this the paper that Pancham and Shelment were talking about? It’s got writing on it…Foot writing? His writing is very hard to read. But to come here he was very brave.” I walk forward and he scream. “Listen kid I’m here to help you. The others send me in the cave to bring you out ok.”
The Goomy kid stop shaking in fear and listen to what I said. “You- You’re here to help me?” He then tear up in joy. He then started to cry. “Oh…Ooohhh…Waaaaaahhh! I was so scared!”
I then did my best to calm him down. I nuzzle him and we both walk out with each other. When we reach the end Daerion was very happy. The other two were quite shock.
“Y-you actually made it back?!” Pephennas said in shock.
“And you brought back the paper, too!” Thirisdir said in awe.
The Goomy kid walk over and put the paper down on the floor. Pephennas then turn to the Goomy kid. “You even wrote your name on it?”
“…Hmph!” Pephennas then walk over to the paper. He then smile happily. “What’s up with this writing? It’s so sloppy and all over the place!”
“It’s not sloppy!” The Goomy kid spoke.
“Too funny! I bet you were too scared and shaking to even write properly!” Thirisdir spoke happily with joy. He jump up and down in the air.
“That’s hilarious! Come on, let’s go show this to everyone!” Pephennas said with his hands in the air. He grab the paper and turn to us. “See ya, suckers! Hahahah!”
“Hey you two!” Daerion growl at them. “Ugh, I’ve had it up to here with them!” she then turn to the Goomy kid. “And you too, Gooma! I’m glad you made it out OK, but what if there hadn’t been anyone around to help?”
Gooma then look guilty. “…Sorry, Daerion.” He spoke looking on the ground. “I wanted to show them that I had real guts, too.”
“Those two will just goad you into doing something crazy.” Daerion spoke with her head to the side. “You can’t listen to them!” she then sigh with a small smile. “Well… you did give it everything you had. That’s for sure.”
“Daerion!” Gooma said favorably with a smile.
“You made it that far into the forest alone…” Daerion pointed out trying to build her friend confidence. “And wrote your name just like they asked. Even though your writing is sloppy…”
“Don’t call it sloppy!” Gooma yell.
“It’s really thanks to you that Gooma go out of there in one piece today.” Daerion spoke with a smile to me. “We really do owe you. So thank you… Um you n ever did tell us your name. If you did I don’t remember.”
I then told her my name and I head home. To be honest I was very tired and I look forward to rest. Little did I know that Nardhon had no intention of letting me get away with disobeying him?
“WHA-WHA-A-A-A-A-A-A-A-A-AT?!” Nardhon yell at me. I look at him with my head down and ears back. My tail was between my legs. “After I done told you not to leave the house! You disobey me anyway! I done told you to stay inside until I got home, did I not?!”
I kept my eyes to the floor. “I’m sorry Nardhon. I did not mean to disobey you. I heard a noise you side and I thought it might be danger.” I spoke softly. “Please forgive me.”
“It don’t matter! If there was a danger then the best place for you to stay would be inside!” Nardhon roar out to me. He then calm down and sigh. “Please mind your elders next time.”
“I’m sorry sir.” I kept my eyes to the ground.
“But…well…” Nardhon sound a lot less angry. I lift my head up in surprise. “It ain’t like I can’t understand the itch to see the wider world out there.” Nardhon explain his feeling to me. “I reckon this must all be new to you, after all. It’s a fine thing to have a love of adventure in your heart. Grown-ups will always be sayin’ you can’t do this, that, or the other… But there are things in life you’ll never learn except by experiencing’ them for yourself. I reckon I’m pretty lax when it comes to adventure and what have you. So if you get a hankering to go adventuring around the village you go right ahead.”
“Nardhon!” I said with excitement in my eyes.
“But from tomorrow morning’, you’ll be attending class at the local school.” Nardhon spoke with a smile. “So you tuck in early tonight to be all ready for you big day.”
I nod my head.
“But before that I want you to meet your private teacher. She will be the one teaching you how to hunt and the society of the dog Pokémon.” Nardhon explain to me. He then went over to the door and open it. “Her name is Muamba the Mightyena.”
I watch this big Mightyena female with red eyes and scars all over her body walk in. she look not empress with me as she walk in. “So this is the pup you were talking about.” Muamba ask Nardhon in a cold voice. “Well she is bigger than any Fennekin I know for her age.”
“Yes you see don’t know anything about the dog or fox Pokémon society. I heard it can be ruff for a dog Pokémon of any kind” Nardhon spoke with a smile. “So I reckon you could teach her.”
“I’m just fine with that. She should be a good student.” Muamba spoke with her ears up. “Tell me kid what you know about fox Pokémon or dog Pokémon.”
“Nothing really. I mean I lost my memory so I don’t know what our society is like.” I said with my ears back. “I wish I knew more about myself.”
Muamba regard me for a moment and grumble. “Alright I will have to teach her from the begging. That will be difficult.” I look down sadly but then look up. “Once that over we can focus on more harder studies.”
“Yes miss.” I said with my ears back.
She then turn to Nardhon. “I will teach her after her school study. Then we can focus on Fennekin study. You will learn the higher monarchy.” Muamba spoke with her ears up. “Now I must go I have my clan to look after.”
“Yes.” Nardhon spoke and saw her out. He then turn to me. “You should get some rest to. You have school in the morning alright.”
