I am soooooooooo sorry for not updating soon. My family took me to Arizona for a party, internet stop for 3 hours, writer's block, and a lot of work. I didn't have time to write this. But the wait is over now, so enjoy this new chapter. And I would like to say HAPPY BIRTHDAY SANJI!
I don't own any thing except Z, her brothers, and another boy. Don't for get to review and if you have ideas for future chapters, type them down, and send them to me. I love hearing other people's ideas
Chapter V: Into Bug Territory, Explanation, Meet Some Pokémon
After Z gave us that warning, we walked into the forest. It was quiet except for the strange animal noises. I heard humming and look at Z, she was swaying side to side. I have to admit, she has a great voice. When she was singing that song on the beach, I thought she was going to attack us, but when she gave me that sad smile, it made me re-think that. I walked up next to her ignoring the confused looks the others were giving me. I heard her singing really low, but I was able to hear it clearly:
" Bring me to life
Frozen inside without your touchWithout your love, darlingOnly you are the life among the dead
All this time I can't believe I couldn't seeKept in the dark but you were there in front of me"
I don't know what song she was singing but it was…weird. While I was next to her, I took this time to observe her. She has long dark brown, almost black, hair tied up in a high ponytail stopping to her mid-back and dark brown chocolate eyes. She looks like she was in a trance but the silence was killing me. I tried to start a conversation with her.
"Hey, what song are you singing?" I asked her.
"Huh? Oh, sorry Zoro. I was singing 'Bring Me to Life' by 'Evanescence'." She replied.
"Never mind, you won't understand."
'Well, that conversation went well. Hurry up Zoro, think of something to say.' I thought.
"Hey, why did you give us that warning before we walked into the forest?" I asked.
"-giggle- Well, aren't you full questions today. Huh?" She said laughing at me, "But to answer your question, the bug types can be really protective of their territory and some of this guys are part poison." She loud enough for the others to hear.
"Wh-what do you mean by that, Z?" Nami asked, a little scared.
"This guys hate it if you mess with them and the island is split into different territories for the…creatures. Some don't get along with other types; so to try and stop future fights between them, the island has borders for them, except at the center of the island. For example, say a normal type was friends with an electric type; they can play at the lake in a clear environment. Some of the Pokémon have 2 different types but don't worry, once these guys get to know you, they'll like you." Z explained.
She stopped all of a sudden and closed her eyes. We were really confused why she stopped; but she opened her eyes, turned to us, and said, "Guys, you're about to meet some of the Pokémon, right about…"
Before she continued, we started to hear buzzing noise. Z looked straight ahead and the next thing I knew, we were surrounded by 4 giant bees with drills for hands. We were about to attack but Z stopped us and said, "Trust me guys. They won't attack, unless I tell them to or you threaten them."
I didn't want to believe her, but something in her dark brown eyes told me too. 'Might as well; she knows these…things better then us.'
I stopped the pirates from attacking the Pokémon. I turned to the Poison Bee Pokémon and said, "Hello, Beedrill(s), it's nice to see you all again."
"Hello Mother. Who are these people behind you? Are they holding you prisoner?" Beedrill said, ready to attack.
"No, no. I volunteer to show these people around and get supplies. And no, they're not holding me prisoner." I said, to clarify things.
Beedrill didn't buy it, but relaxed a little bit. Nami ran to me and hold on to my arm. I remembered one of the episodes that showed Nami and Sanji scared of bugs. I turned to Nami but still keep the Pokémon in my view and said, "What's wrong Nami? Are you scared of these guys?"
She didn't say anything and just nodded her head. I mentally laugh but on the outside I just smiled and said, "Nami, you don't need to be scared of these guys."
"A-are you su-sure?" She said, a little shaken.
"Yeah, don't worry." I said to her. I looked backed at the Pokémon and said, "You guys know that I don't mind your company, but your scaring 1 of our guest."
"Sorry Mother. We will leave because we need to patrol the area again." Beedrill said.
" 'Again.' What do you mean?"
"We're looking for Spinarak and Joltik."
They looked at each other and said, "We're it." After they said that, they flew off.
After those bees flew off, Z shook her head. It's a good thing they left but what did they say?
"Hey Z. what did they say anyway and who are they?" I said.
"That was Beedrill, the Poison Bee Pokémon. Their best attack involves flying around at high speed, striking with poison needles, then flying off. They were looking for Spinarak and Joltik because they're playing hide and seek." Z explained.
After she said that, we all (except Luffy and Z) fell to the floor. 'Those bees were playing hide and seek?!' This forest is crazy…and scary. I looked around and saw something on Luffy.
"Hey Luffy, what's that?" I said pointing at the little yellow thing on his back.
He turned around, grabbed it, and gave it to Z. He said, "Here, this was on my back. I think it belongs to you."
The little yellow thing was actually a spider with 4 legs and…fur? It looked both weird and cute in a way. Z lift her hand and the spider crawled from Luffy's hand to Z's hand and up to her shoulder.
"Hello Joltik. What are you doing here?" Z asked the spider, petting it.
"Joltik, Jol." It said. "Joltik, Joltik Tik." (Nothing, Mom. Have you seen Spinarak?)
"No, I haven't. I thought he was with you."
The conversation last for like 2 minutes until I saw something behind Z. It looked like a green spider with a face on its back. I try to tell Z but the spider landed on her head. She looked up and smiled.
"Hey Spinarak. Joltik was looking for you." She said to the spider.
"Uh…Z. Who are they?" Nami asked after she ran behind Luffy.
"Oh sorry. This is Joltik (pointing to the spider on her shoulder), the Attaching Pokémon, she attach her-selve to larger-bodied Pokémon and absorb static electricity, which she stores in an electric pouch." The creature waved her…leg in a way of saying 'hi', "And, this is Spinarak (pointing to the spider on her head), the String Spit Pokémon, he sets a trap by spinning a web with thin but strong silk. He waits motionlessly for his prey to arrive." The creature copied the other one.
The spiders started talking to Z again. She looked confused but then she looked angry.
"What do you mean you woke up Snorlax?! Do you know how long it takes for him to get back to sleep?" She yelled at the spiders.
"What's wrong Z and who's Snorlax?" I asked a little concerned and scared.
"Snorlax is a normal type Pokémon, whose desperation is to gulp down food, he even forgets the food hidden under his fur. He sleeps for hours and he lets other small Pokémon jump on his stomach. Spinarak, Joltik, may you please go get Jigglypuff and Chatot. I'm going to need their help to stop Slorlax." Z explained.
After she said that, the spiders ran into the forest. It was strange to see the creatures listening to her, like she was their leader or something.
"Why do you need their help? Can you do it on your own?" Zoro asked.
"How can those creatures understand you anyway? And are you their queen?" I asked.
"Yeah, I can do it on my own but it'll be faster with their help. As to how can I understand them, … I don't know to tell you the truth. It just seems natural to me and you just have to listen very closely." She said. "Oh, and I'm not their queen. I'm their…Mother."
After she said that we were all shocked. I could tell we were all thinking the same thing: 'She's their Mother!'
