I was slipping. Slipping out of time. I could feel the tunnel winds whip my hair, my clothes about. Pain pierced me through as the Minccino on the other side reflexively sunk its claws deep into my hand, trying to keep hold. It was no use. My Aurasensors were making my head pound like mad as every heartbeat drove nails into my skull. I was slipping. And there was nothing I could do. Gradually my hand came loose of the Pokémon's grasp and I felt myself falling. Falling through time.
. . .
I remember it all. I came to in Arceus knows where. My head felt like someone had struck a bell inside it. I opened my sightless silver eyes to find the usual blackness that greeted me. I could hear the sound of lapping waves far off in the distance, and tasted the familiar sent of salty sea air. Low voices rumbled somewhere a ways off, saying words I couldn't quite comprehend. I smelled sweet flowers. And as I took in all this information, my senses became once again overwhelmed. My head pounded harder. What had happened just now? Taking a deep breath, I closed my eyes, and felt with my mind.
Sounds turned to white noise as all of my senses worked in perfect harmony with each other. Now I knew. I was close to the ocean. A small wood lay to my right, while a trail to the seashore was off to my left. And I wasn't alone. Opening my eyes and sitting up, I spoke.
"Who are you?"
A creature's voice giggled its reply. "Guardian are you?"
"...Pardon?" I asked, confused.
It then sang.
"Guardian, O Guardian, the Aura shines you bright
Guardian, O Guardian, of peril take your flight
Guardian, great Guardian, Runaway, Runaway
Guardian, great Guardian, may sunlight light your way
Guardian, brave Guardian, your tracks shall cross the stars
Guardian, my Guardian, may your Aura take you far."
"Uhh," I mumbled, half from confusion of the situation and half from my still pounding head. "What?"
Waves of happiness radiated from the small creature. "My Guardian, run away to find his sight."
At that point I snapped. "What ARE you!?" I shouted, causing my Auravision to blur. The creature now was now indigo in my sight, a colour of frustration. I was bowled over by a small tackle attack.
"You. Me. Find sight," it said.
My anger was growing. As a result, I could barely sense anything through Aura. "What do you mean!? Who are you!?" I shouted.
To this day I'm not quite sure exactly what happened in the next few moments. The creature stopped. "You come from Land of the Future to this time, here. Lord Kiess sent you. He has chosen me as guide. You! Yes no?"
I just stared dumbly into the blackness, unable to see or sense anything.
The creature continued. "I Luna. SpiritPichu I am. Lead you I will. We, travel to the HighKing Caves. We must find the sight! Yes no?"
I calmed down. "Okay, SpiritPichu, can you lead me to this cave?"
The female Pichu sprang up off of me, letting me stand up. "Together journey, my Guardian! We go to village!" She hopped onto my shoulder.
"Okay. Now where's this village?"
"Over rise, one Sunset away! Forward, now!"
"Hey, uh, if you're here to be my guide, why am I carrying you?"
"No questions, just FORWARD!"
. . .
That was the start of my adventure with Luna the SpiritPichu. Read on if you dare. You may not be able to believe what happens next. I sure didn't.
