I suggest reading the story. I kinda went crazy while trying to control the number of panels, it's hard to draw the most important info from the writing.Prev: [link]Next: [link]Chapter One: Oishi and Amabel
Amabel, the youngest of a Rogue team by the name of Iron Spirit, was all alone and too depressed to go on with her life. First Papa disappeared then Mama and James, why did they leave her like this? Tao Village seemed much bigger without family and friends. But, there was always things to do when you're a Rogue and the shiny Swinub couldn't let her emotions get in the way of her job. What would Mama say if she saw her slacking on work? Amabel needed to check in with Devonshire to see if he had any missions for the remaining member of this team. Heading towards the Keystone shaped building; which was now the location for Devonshire's Law Firm since the Reconstruction; Amabel overheard many ‘Mons talking about the disappearance of half of the village, the thought didn't help improve the child's mood. As she entered the haunting building, Amabel could hear Gunpowder shouting at someone deep down inside the cave the Law Firm stood over. She traveled further into the Rogues' hideout and a male Zangoose known as Dmitri stomped past her without noticing the girl, he looked quite uneasy after the Gabite's scolding. Was it a bad time to ask about missions?
"Ahoy, lassie.”Gunpowder greeted her from a rock he was lounging on top of. "Yer a rogue lookin' fer a mission, eh?" His voice sounded a bit unsure as he stared down at the green furred piggy with the gravity-defying scarf.
"Oui, Mizter Gunpowder." Amabel answered politely, adjusting her scarf as so around her round body.
"Good. Chex, I got yer escort here waitin' fer ye!" He called out into a tunnel, his voice echoing slightly. Scurrying out was a young Cubone called Chex; he had helped with removing bodies with other Rogues during Reconstruction to the Graveyard. Ever though he was mute, certain Pokémon like Amabel could understand his squeaks and chirps when speaking.
'Anana won't pay. For body removal.' He said to Amabel while Gunpowder just heard squeaks. 'She won't listen to me. She says it looks bad to pay so much. It makes Alomomola look unsafe.'
Amabel frowned. "I can zee why Mademoiselle Anana feelz that way."
Chex started swinging his pointed bone club in the air in frustration. 'She has to realize the truth. Can't hide that there have been murders. You tell her to pay me. Help me take the bodies home. Tell her you will tell everyone if she doesn't pay.'
'It is the only way.'
Amabel sighed heavily. She hated the thought of blackmailing someone to get money but if that was the only way, she couldn't object to the idea. "If youz zeyzo Mizter Chex..."
Chex smiled. 'Good. We will be on our way now.'
Oishi the Gothita was a strange kid indeed, Fresnel could say for everyone. She seemed slightly oblivious to the tough times the village was going through and quite eager to travel all the way to Alomomola Bay by herself. The Ampharos had a cold sweat running down the side of his face as he observed the girl child staring out the tree house window in awe. He feared Oishi wouldn't be able to succeed at this mission, failure was not an option for this delivery yet Fresnel didn't want to hurt the girl's feelings. While Oishi was distracted by the view of Tao from the Rescuers' Headquarters, Fresnel managed to scrounge up a copy of his letter to Anana, just in case.
Oishi had finished squishing her face against the window and was ready to leave on her first quest without Mama or Papa. She was about to explode with all the pent up excitement in her little body. As soon as Fresnel handed over the letter, Oishi dashed out the door and flew passed the green eyed Ralts wearing a black scarf around her neck who walked up to the leader. No words where exchange between the two when Fresnel gave the duplicate letter to the Ralts, knowing well she will get the job done.
