PMD: Love in the Abyss of Time

Where the Truth Don't Lie

Author's Note: Hey people! Chapter 11! how great is that!

"What do you mean another Time Gear has been stolen!?" Basil shouted across the room at Chatot.

"Its just as I said another Time Gear was stolen!" Chatot chirped. The guildmaster's face full of sadness; as well as the rest of the guild members. Bidoof struggled to get out a word. His beaver teeth chattering. He was tripping over his words like a frozen child.

"W-was it the one Uxie was gaurding?" Basil quickly looked at Chatot. Basil's stare was intent on finding answers. He was a person that would protect and possibly give his own life to protect another person. I held my breath waiting for Chatot to answer.

"Fortunately,it was not I just-" Basil quickly cut him off. I looked over at Basil, hoping he wouldn't say anymore.

"Well, we can't just sit here and do nothing we have to-" Basil's calm state was beginning to crumble. I grabbed Basil's paw, trying to coax him into not making another outburst.

"That is enough outburst from you! We can't do anything at the moment and that is just something your going to have to accept." Basil emanated a low growl, I looked over to see him clenching his teeth and his paws in a fist.

"We should be protecting the Time Gears, and protecting the people behind it. You can't just say this is unimportant!" Basil shouted, the room became a still quiet. I could hear low breathing in the room.

"We can't! But if anyone has any information, please contact Officer Magnizone." Basil growled, slamming his fist onto the table in front of him.

"I don't want to just sit by and wait for someone to get hurt!" Basil yelled. He broke away from my hand and left the room. An immediate silence and whispers followed after a few moments.

"Basil wait!" I yelled out to him. He ran off and into our room. I ran after him to try to calm him down. I walked into our room to see Basil sitting on the straw bed. His body facing away from him, cradling his knees in a protective state.

"Now is not a good time, love." I stopped in the doorway.

"Ya, but what's with you, you never act that way." Basil stood up and turned to me, his red eyes locking with mine. His emotion hit me like a ton of bricks, his feelings passing through me.

"The time gears are very important, they keep the balance in this world. The people behind them risk their lives to keep the balance. The person stealing the time gears will probably stop at nothing to get them, even if it means killing them in the process." I walked closer to him grabbing his paw and squeezing it slightly. I opened my mouth to say something, but another voice came.

"You protect the people who are important, the people who make a difference in your life." I turned to see Sam standing in the doorway. He stood there looking down at the floor.

"You protect the ones you love, because its the right thing to do." Sam walked closer to us, stopping next to me as he spoke.

"In that single moment, you would be willing to give up your life, your chances just to see the one you love happy." Sam brought his eyes up to mine, I began to feel nervous, and slowly backed away from him. I squeezed Basil's paw tighter, waiting for him to say something. Sam looked at me hurt, and slowly began to back out of the room.

"I understand you Basil." Sam whispered as he left the room. I started walking back in front of Basil. I looked up at him, as his eyes looked down at me.

"I can't give up trying to save them." Basil closed his eyes.

"You don't have to, and I will always be there to help you." He brought his hand up to my face.

"I know you will. Thank you." He kissed my forehead as I smiled.

"You ok? You really don't have to work today if you don't want to...I can just tell Chatot that your-"

"It's cool, besides, I get to hang out with you." I smiled slightly in thought.

"Ok then, whenever your ready."

"Lets go love. We have work to do." He said as he nudged me out the door.

Basil's POV

I went to the ladder. I looked around, allowing Summer to climb the ladder first. She was about half way up the ladder when I started up after her. I heard a piercing scream, shattering the air like a whip. I held my ears with my paws maintaining balance on the ladder, but Summer fell on top of me. The back of her head slammed into the front of my face, causing me to slam onto the floor.

"Ugh, my ears are ringing." I heard Summer say. She sat up rubbing the back of her head. She quickly turned around, apologizing to me. I sat up, listening to her tell me how sorry she was. She didn't have to be.

"I'm so sorry love. I didn't mean to fall on you its just-" I leaned in to kiss her. Her apology quickly turned quiet. She smiled back moving her blond hair behind her ear.

"Its ok, don't be sorry about anything, you didn't do anything wrong." She looked down at me, a soft smile on her face.

"I'm sorry I hurt your head." She said, slight guilt could be heard in her voice. She looked away from me.

"I'm more worried about you." I said.

"Aw, your adorable." She said to me, leaning her head on mine.

"But then there is you." I said closing the gap between us. I heard Sam clear his voice, as Summer pulled away and stood up. I'll finish the moment later. I looked over at Sam, way to ruin the moment.

"What Sam?" I looked up as he pointed to Loudred. I looked over to see his teal blue body red in the face from yelling.

"DIGGLET! COME BACK DIGGLET!" I walked over toward him, the rumbling on the ground could be felt.

"What's the matter with Digglet?" Sam asked, I smiled as I looked off in Summer's direction. She looked back at me and gave me a heartfelt smile.

"Digglet never leaves his post, it is very rare that he gets stumped. I asked him who that visitor was, and he just took off." I looked back at the ladder, hearing a burrow noise.

"He's HERE!" I looked at him dumbfounded.

"Who is?" He squealed in excitement.

"DUSKNOIR!" Everyone in the guild stopped, and they all turned their attention toward the door. Their heads turned as if in beaker of a lighthouse. They all whispered in excitement, although I didn't understand why.

"Oh Yippe! The great Dusknoir is here, he's super smart and brave." I heard Sunflora squeal from across the room.

"He's a one man team, the best explorer ever..." Bidoof said while going into complete shock of what he was saying.

This Pokémon, a graceful, wise leader among my friends had walked into the room with such stride, such power. I was star stuck.

He spoke in a deep voice, the kind that sends chills up your spine.

"I'm looking for your guildmaster." A pink fluffy ball walked out of the room. WigglyTuff was considerably smaller than Dusknoir but the two were a fanaminal pair. These two great explorers talked as if they were old friends, catching up on all the explorations they had been on.

"I heard that your guild went on an exploration. Did you guys solve the mystery of Fogbound Lake?" WigglyTuff bit his lip, I held my breath hoping that he would not show our secret.

"No...we didn't find anything...a complete disappointment." Dusknoir scanned WigglyTuff for an answer.

"Oh...but surely a great and famous guild as great as yours must have found something?" I could hear WigglyTuff's slight giggle.

"Ya, we searched everywhere, but unfortunately, we couldn't find anything. The mystery of Fog Bound Lake was just too hard." Dusknoir looked down, on his face, a slight smile.

"Ok...I will be in town for a while, so if you or your guild needs anything, all you need is ask." Dusknoir turned, and left out the ladder. Everyone paused in a moment of silence before we started moving again.

"Ok everyone go on with your normal buisness..." I heard WigglyTuff sing.

"Oh my god I can't believe DUSKNOIR IS HERE! YIPPPPEEEEE! Sunflora squealed as she headed for the door.

"Who is Dusknoir?" Sunflora quickly stopped in her tracks and immediately charged at Sam.

"You don't know who Dusknoir is!?" Sam scratched the back of his neck. His face a bright red, in embarrassment.

"N-no" Sunflora punched his arm.

"He is the greatest explorer of our time. He is a one man team, THE ULTIMATE EXPLORER!" Sam looked at her in awe. Like he had never seen a great explorer before.

"Ok, Sunflora can I have Sam back, we have to go." Summer said sheepishly

"Oh...ok." She gestured to the door and we left. We grabbed a job and headed out the door and headed for the town. Summer stopped our team at the base of the guild.

"Ok we'll pick up some stuff from the market and then we'll head out OK guys." She said as these two boys ran past us.

"Hey...where you boys off to in such a hurry?" The boys stopped in their tracks. They turned to see me and I recongized who they were in a instance. It was Azumaril and his older brother Marill.

"Oh its you guys. Thanks again for saving us! We were on our way to the beach. Someone said that they saw our item on the beach and we are on our way to go get it." The brothers ran off before I could say another word.

"Oh well...good luck." I heard Summer say quietly. It was nice to see those boys so bright and cheerful especially after the Drowsee incident.

"Let's go, we have work to do." I said. We continued walking through Treasure town, and as I looked down at the town, I spotting a familiar figure by the shop. It was Dusknoir, talking to the Kalceom brothers.

Sam quickly started up a conversation with him. I turned to be startled by the Kacleom.

"HIYA! What would you like from us today?" I looked through the glass windows, a couple of gummies, apples and orbs. Nothing too special, or unusual.

"Um...Actually I don't want anything." I backed away from the counter, slightly looking over my shoulder to see Summer talking to Dusknoir. I slowly walked behind Summer, putting my hands on her shoulder as she talked.

"So, we work at the guild. We are team Firestar." Summer smiled happily at him.

"Oh that's wonderful. Well I guess-" We heard screaming and heavy panting coming toward us.

"They took it, The took it!" Azurmarill screamed, tears streaming down his face, as he cried into his brother's chest.

"What's the matter?" Sam asked politely.

Marill looked down at the floor, he gave Summer a paper with writing on it. She looked at the paper and passed it to me.

"What? You expect me to know how to read that?" I shook my head and read the paper outloud.

"Thought you were going to find you item? Well you can't because I have it. If you want it so bad come to the Amp Plains and get it back." I stopped.

"Any way you look at it, that's a ransom note!" Sam shouted. I turned to the boys.

"Don't even think about going there, if anything we can handle it!" Sam yelled.

I ran off toward the square, but someone grabbed my paw, holding me back.

"Will you help us, you did last if you knew that we would need it..." His crying eyes red and puffy from his tears. I looked over at Summer, she had already told me that she had this sence about events. I believed her even before we were dating.

"Um, my girlfriend just happened to see it in a dream, she is the real hero." The two boys looked at her in awe. I looked around to see Dusknoir a sudden perk on his face.

"Did you say a dream?" His voice sent a odd chill up my spine. Something seemed off, but what?

"Ya, it kinda helped them out...I really don't like to talk about it." I felt bad, I knew she didn't like to be put on the spot like that.

"Well that's great, now go help these boys." Dusknoir crossed a small smile on his face.

"Oh, ok we'll be back soon." She grabbed my hand, running off in the direction. I turned to see Sam sigh and follow us close behind.

Sam's Pov

The dirt path to the Amp plains was far. I looked up into the sky to see purple and pink streaks of lighting filling the sky. Sometimes both streaks would hit together to make a blue streak in the sky.

Looking through the plains, I see the yellow grass, the thunder stones we pass as we walk along side them. I picked one up, scanning the lighting bolt insignia on the side. I turned to Summer, and stopped her from walking.

"Ever thought of using one of these? Could come in handy later." Summer turned toward me, watching the stone intensely.

"No...what is it?" I held it out to her. She was about to touch it, when Basil swatted it out of my hand.

"What the hell are you doing!? Thats a evovle when you touch it." Summer shrank back down to her spot and tilted her head, her bangs hanging to the side.

"Evolve?" Basil sighed.

"Its when your body changes from one form to the next...some by level others by stones. Your state now is one that needs a stone to evolve. Its your decision on whether you want to evolve but..." Basil looked to the ground.

"I like you just the way you are." I literally barfed in my mouth trying not to hack on his corny lines. I looked over at Summer to see her blush, she's a girl I don't blame her for liking his words. Basil has always had that about him. I wish I could find a way with words like he does. If I could maybe things would be different.

"Aww, thats sweet." She said as she kissed his cheek. Basil's face turned red. I rolled my eyes, still trying to discard the thoughts about them. I looked to see him smile, a genuine smile that I had rarely ever seen him with. This was his true self, he never felt like this before;I could tell, it was written all over his face. This smile, was it love? Was he truely in love with her? My heart sank, all I had ever wanted was to be with her, but seeing him happy...I assume that at the end of the day, them being together is the right thing...even if I'm not happy, I had to make that choice.

"Sam, are you ok?" I looked up to see Summer look back at me. I smiled back. I felt my chest become tight, trying to find the words to say.

"Ya, just thinking." She simply shrugged her shoulders, and turned around, bumping into Basil, who was slightly in front of her. He turned back and picked her up of the ground.

"What did you stop for?" Basil simply turned and pointed to the item.

"Is that the item?" The item looked like a child's rattle, the one that you get as your first toy as a child.

"I guess so...lets get it and take it back." A white flash blinded me, I shut my eyes, shielding them from the incredible light.

"Ugh! Its so bright!" The white light blinded me.

Meanwhile back at Treasure Town...

"I can't believe that they helped you like about a helping hand." Dusknoir said alittle amazed at that quick accomplishment Team Firestar had made.

"Ya, I hope that they make it back here soon! I can't believe they are helping us again, they went to Amp Plains this time..." Dusknoir's eye widened, his smile quickly faded.

"What time of year is it?" The brothers looked over at Dusknoir alittle strange, didn't he already know what time of year it was?

"Um, it's the start of Summer...the warmest season." Dusknoir eye was practically popping out of his head.

"Oh, I have to go, Team FireStar is in grave danger!" Dusknoir charged in the direction until he was out of sight.

"What just happened?" The Kacleom brothers said scratching their head." Azumaril sat on the side of the road

"I hope that their ok.." Marill sat beside his brother, cradling him in his arms.

"I know they will." Marill said, reassuring his younger brother.

Back with our heroes Basil's POV

The light had finally dimmed on the open plain. I looked before me to see a fleet of Luxio and Shinx. A lone Luxray stood, his electricity surging down his black body to the tips of his blue toes. I moved in front of Summer, on guard of anything that may happen.

"Why have you come!?" The Luxray moved closer toward me. I moved my hands in a position in case I would have to use a Aura Sphere.

"Look we're not here to start trouble we just came because-" The lone leader, roared.

"LEAVE NOW!" I slowly backed away pushing Summer backwards towards Sam.

"Look we don't want any trouble, we just-" Luxray walked closer to us, his electricity growing stronger. I turned to Summer, Her cheeks crackling, as if a test in strength.

"Leave, or suffer the consequences!" I readied myself, this was going to be a fight.

"Basil, there's no way he is going to listen to you. Fight, or Flight?" I heard Sam say, to be honest, there was now way I was going to be able to take on all of this tribe. A fight for an item, ya right. Suddenly, I felt a wind brush against my fur. A flash of yellow. I saw Summer leap into battle, what was she thinking?

"WAIT!" I said leaping forward in after her, trying to keep distance from all the Luxio and Shinx.

"Sam! Create a Barrier!" I yelled, I turned to see Sam create a wall of fire, making the Shinx shrink back in fear of being burned.

"Great! Be ready to bolt when I say the word!" Sam gave me a reassuring nod. I ran through the mob of Shinx and Luxio, trying to find the sole thing I was searching for...Summer. I could see giant sparks and flashes in the distance, seeing a crowd around the ledge of the canyons. Rocks falling around it as the fight raved on. I ran through the crowd, jumping up trying to catch a glimpse. I could hear the battle cries of my love, as I was running to be by her side.

"Summer!" I yelled, finally bursting through the crowd. Summer and Luxray in a heated battle, trying to see who would come out on top. Summer and Luxray, electricity locked. The leader, growling and pushing his electric output to his max. Summer, intensely growling back. I looked to see lighting clashing in the middle of the two. Summer quickly looked to me.

"Get the item!" I ran, trying to find that item...was it really worth it? Probably not. I went to pick up the item, when I heard a growl. I looked back spotting a Shinx trying to over take me, prying its claws into my left arm. It ripped away from me, it's fangs bared.

"Ugh!" I yelped, gripping my arm. I perked up my ears to hear growling, looking around I could see I was surrounded. I only had moments to think, but what could repel them? I thought of Summer, but where would she find time to do that? I mean she was fighting the leader... Sam as a last resort? I yelled out.

"SAM! GET OVER HERE, NOW!" I felt a quick blaze, and Sam appeared behind me.

"Woah! That's a lot of Shinx and Luxio!" Sam unleashed a blaze pushing back the tribe. I quickly thought of a action.

"Use flamethrower!" I unleashed aura spheres, circling them around us. As the Flame hit them, the color changed from blue to a flamed red. Using my concentration I swirled them tightly around us. The new heat surrounding the balls was hard to control.

"Where did you learn to do that?" Sam looked at me, shocked. His talking was ruining my concentration, shooting off the balls of light in a direction,hitting most of the tribe in the process.

I suddenly felt tired, an uncontrolled sence of drowning? I fell to my knees, lacking air in my lungs. I felt like I was being suffocated, my lungs burning, I felt like I was drowning underwater. I suddenly felt dizzy, but why? I felt my self slipping away, It was a unusual feeling, like I was falling, falling into darkness, falling into a sleep.

"Basil?!" I heard my name, struggling to keep my eyes open, I was losing the fight to stay awake, I could see a yellow blur before my sleep finally consumed me.

Sam's POV

I looked behind me in shock. Basil single handedly took out the entire tribe, I looked back at him. His eyes glossy, his breathing short and raspy. His whole facial expression had changed. He fell to the floor, his face in a panic, a cry for help.

"Basil?!" I heard Summer yell, her gaze breaking from the Luxray. Her face that was once full of confidence was now in a state of shock. She quickly stopped the battle, being shocked by the electricity of Luxray, she didn't seem to care, she quickly flashed beside Basil. She kneeled down beside him, cradling him in her arms.

The Luxray looked away, seeing the fight was now over. I looked down, what happened? He had been fine a few moments ago. I looked to see Summer, looking up at me, her eyes pleading, begging for me to help her. I didn't know what to say.

"Sam...please...what happened?" Her eyes, filling with tears at every word. I tried to think of the words to say, not finding anything to come to mind. In the corner of my vision, I could see the Luxray, charging for one attack. I payed no mind to it, I looked over at Summer, her head hunched over Basil, her hiccups in muffled tears.

"Its...ok...your gunna...your gunna be ok..." Her tears spilling over him. I couldn't help but feel a scene of guilt...the poor girl. I could feel my heart breaking

"I promise." She looked up at me, tears running down the side of her face. I walked past her, no longer wanting to see her cry. My heart breaking just from the sight of it. As I walked past her, she grabbed my leg. I looked at the ground.

"Sam...please." I looked up the Luxray now ready to attack. I looked on, knowing that I had to protect them...protect them, because they were the ones who make a difference, because they were important, because I love them. I quietly said to myself,

"I will." As the Luxray shot a bolt of lighting, seeing as how it was too big, fighting the urge with my flame,

Come on Sam! You have to fight! You have to win. Don't let this be the end for you... Survive, even when all seems down, even when all seems... lost.

"NO!" I closed my eyes, hiding from the blinding light. I felt the fire swirl and the light break. I slowly opened my eyes to see Dusknoir in front of me. Had he got between the attacks?

"LUXRAY! These people don't mean any harm, I understand you were hurt, but hurting these people isn't the right thing to do!" The Luxray backed away his head slowly nodding. In a quick flash of light he was gone. Dusknoir turned back to us, I saw him kneel before Basil, Summer was fiercely guarding him, not allowing anyone to touch him.

"No, don't touch him. Nobody touch him." Summer cried, her tears flowing freely. Dusknoir stopped, his face now a different domineer.

"Just let me see." He reached out to touch him, but was shocked. Summer stood up, her face falling.

"I said, don't touch him." I turned back. A dark pulsing sensation, I turned back, her electricity completely out in the open, was see herself?

"Hey, are you ok?" I said to be suddenly blasted by electricity. I fell to the floor, the electricity still pulsing through me.

"Agh! I just want to help!" I screamed. I opened my eyes, struggling to get up. I stood up, still facing her.

"Look at yourself Summer, this isn't you...this isn't what you want, you want to help Basil...let us help you." I looked at her face, her electricity beginning to fade back. I could see it now, her face her eyes...the ones that were once brown eyes were now a dark red.

"Ok..." Her eyes changed back. Tears falling. Dusknoir slowly went to Basil, slowly picking him up. He began walking home, I grabbed the rattle running after him. I looked back to see Summer walking behind us. I stopped to talk to her, as she walked slowly.

"Look, lets go and take care of Basil...I'm sure he'll want to see you when he wakes up." She didn't say anything.

"I know..." Summer faced away from me. The next question she asked me peirced my heart, how could she ever think this.

Sam, do you think I'm a bad person?" I thought for a moment...don't say anything you will regret later.

"No, your a amazing person...I wouldn't be able to do anything if you weren't here...remember that." I said walking away after Dusknoir. I looked back to see Summer walking behind me.

Summer's POV

I walked up the guild stairs, my heart feeling heavy. I was thinking about Basil, he was fine on minute and gone the next. I couldn't find myself to think about anything but him. I looked amoung the faces of the guild, surprised as they were, they were not surprised.

"What happened?" Too be honest, I didn't even know. I was just worried something horrible happened to him. I saw him go down, and I felt a sence of dread, loss. I don't know, what to do...without him I feel lost. I walked into our room, Basil sleeping on his bed. I looked at him, almost crying at the sight.

"Basil..." I walked toward him, sitting beside his bed waiting for him to wake up, to show me, he was still with me.

"I gave the item to the boys, they were sad to hear about Basil." I didn't turn my head. I just starred at Basil.

"Ya...well thats what happens when you don't think before you act." I ran into battle for those boys, and this was the result...Basil in a weird coma. I can't even begin to say how sorry I am to him, I just miss even the thought of us being seperated is horrible.

"It's not your fault, you didn't do anything." Sam said encouraging words, following me into our room.

"It is, I should have been a better leader and protected you." I felt like I was going to break down. I was going to go into a mental state.

"Your a great leader...without you I would-" I didn't want to hear him anymore, I just wanted to be left alone.

"Sam, please just go, come back in a little is not the time." I heard the footsteps leave the room, I sighed, I didn't want to be mean to Sam, I just can't deal with this right now.

" love, please be ok."

Basil's POV

I'm in a room, a dark room. I looked around to notice I was in a corner, I looked to see their was two other corners. Summer was in one, and then Sam in the other.

"Where am I?" I said walking toward the middle of the room. I stopped, as if stuck there. I looked at Sam, his body fading into the darkness. I looked back to see Summer was still there. I fought, to try and get to her. I could hear voices, whispers in my ears as I ran.

"She lied to you, she is going to hurt you, she never cared about you, she is waiting to stomp on your heart and ripe you to pieces." I stopped running, how could anyone say such a thing about her. I ran to her, my paw out streched to her, she was mear inches from me, but she didn't seem to notice.

"Summer, come on!" She looked over at me, a creepy looking smirk on her face, that was not the person I had grown to love, I loved her because of her personality, she was funny but she had the courage to continue even if I couldn't she was brave and strong and I knew that she would do anything for me... but the voices seemed to say something else...they were wrong right? She wouldn't hurt me...she just wouldn't.

"She would never hurt me! She loves me!" The darkness spoke to me.

"She's waiting for the right moment to wouldn't play the game without getting to know the players right?" The words frustrated me.

"Stop with your lies! She doesn't play me, your wrong." I was beginning to feel trapped.

"How could she, she is too busy playing with someone else." I felt my heart sink, it was unbelievable, she wouldn't do that to me... right?

"No! She wouldn't, even if she did with who?" A single image played in my mind, the one person...would he do that to me?

"Who do you think? He's been eyeing your girlfriend since he met her...think about it." I tried to think, my mind clouded and fuzzy.

"Sam would never! I don't believe you when you say that." The darkness was silent.

"WELL!?" I yelled out, expecting a answer.

"Don't trust Sam, watch can't trust either of them...and its slowly coming to an end for you and Summer, as much as you don't want to, you'll have to let her go." I don't believe any of this.

"What the hell are you talking about, as long as our love is strong it will never end." I could feel myself sinking, into the darkness.

"You trust her too much, even when its clear...its going to get to you in the end." I felt the tips of my paws sinking in a dark goo, I looked over at the corner that Summer was in, smiling happily as I sank.

"Hey, what's going on?" The darkness said one last thing to me.

"You don't believe me now, but remember what I said." With those last words, I sank into darkness.

Summer's POV

I looked at Basil, his eyes beginning to open. I gasped, and let out a sigh of relief. I hugged him, not even giving him a chance to register what was going on.

"I was so worried about you." I cried into his chest, I didn't want to let him go, in fear of being seperated again. He hugged me back tightly, hushing me.

"Uh...How long was I out?" I sat on his lap, and looked up at him as he looked down at me.

"Couple of hours..." He scratched the back of his head.

"That...was insane." Basil laughed, then kissed the top of my head.

"Are you ok? Do you feel ok? Is there absolutly anything I can get you? I'll be right back!" I stood up to leave but he grabbed my wrist, not allowing me to leave.

"Why do you care so much? I'm ok, look at me." I pushed him back down on his straw bed.

"Well, you need to rest."

"I'll rest when I'm dead." I stopped, those words, I never even wanted to picture them. I felt a single tear roll down my cheek. Basil quickly became quiet.

" Woaw, I'm so sorry love, its just...It's ok, I'm sorry, I guess I overdid it today with that move" I cried harder, trying not to just over do it myself.

"Don't be sorry, it was my fault, if I hadn't-" He inturrupted ne, not wanting to hear me feel sorry for myself. I felt instantly calm, listening to his words.

"I over did it...don't be sorry, I should have known my limits...sorry I scared you." I felt a slight scene of guilt. I looked into his red eyes, a slight smile on his face.

"Well don't, I can't replace someone like you." I say leaning on him.

"I don't expect you too." I smiled as he stroked my hair. I shifted my position to lay comfortably in his arms. He whispered in my ear. I felt myself slip away of all emotions, becoming calmer in his arms. I felt like I was falling asleep. I felt so safe, so warm. I never wanted to leave.

"I love you..." I felt him kiss my head as I fell asleep in his arms.

Back at Fogbound Lake

"I-I knew I shouldn't have trusted them...I should have taken their memories when I had the chance." Uxie said

"No one told me about this place, I have know about this for a long time." The grovyle, inched closer to the Time Gear.

"Don't take it." Uxie shrieked.

"I have to for all of us." Grovyle said, taking the Gear. The area turned grey, Uxie ran in fear out of the cave.

"You have doomed us all!" Uxie said, her face quievering with fear.

"Hmph. I wouldn't have it any other way." Grovyle eminated a low chuckle, looking up at the forest with his hazel eyes. With the Time gear in hand, he ran off.

"Now to get the others." Grovyle said. It ran, concealing itself in the forest, off to find the other time gears.

Like...Hate... keep are loved.
