Pokémon Poacher
    
    


Festivals. They always brought crowd and crowds meant open pockets and a flow of money and pokemon that any poacher worth their title would gladly take advantage of. That was part of why Felicity was in Hinoki Village. Not because she was planning on stealing anything, but because her crew was working the festival streets, taking a break from their activities in the Amaranth Forest so as not to draw too much attention to themselves. That and it was getting harder and harder to track down their prey. Eevee, especially wild ones, were notoriously shy and disrupting their habitat had caused them to migrate and be on high alert. Allowing the wild population to settle and replenish some would mean more pokemon to hunt when they returned.

So, having heard about the Festival, their boss had brought them out here to do what they did best: pick pockets and work the back alleys and dark corners for potential buyers for their stolen or poached goods. Felicity played her part, picked a few pockets and generally brought in just enough to keep anyone from growing too suspicious of her motives. It had taken her months to earn her way back into the group's good graces and be allowed to travel without an escort. And there were some who still didn't quite trust her and demanded their leader always keep some incentive to ensure she would return. So any time she was allowed to leave, he never let her take all of her pokemon and gave her a set amount of time to return. He always had at least one with him at all times and threatened the worst punishment imaginable if she should betray them again. So she never spoke a word to anyone about her situation and always returned before her deadline. She was little more than a hostage and she knew it.

Still, what little freedom she was allowed meant that, if the right circumstances presented themselves, she could bring the group down once and for all. She would need help, however, and with no one to turn to, she doubted she'd ever get the chance. But she kept a slim hope that something would happen to help her sever her ties with the Nimbasa City poaching ring once and for all. It was, perhaps, a fool's hope; but she vowed to escape some day, even if she had to resort to crossing the last line she had left in order to do it.

"God damn it, Samara..." she cursed under her breath, keeping in mind she was surrounded by strangers. That was just the problem, the streets were packed! She hated crowds, it gave her anxiety and a feeling of not having control if something bad happened. Which is exactly how she felt in this moment, frantically trying to find her Haunter. She nudged her way in between shoulders of people, and stood on her tiptoes to look over all of their stupid heads. Who the f*** puts on a festival about stupid blossoming trees anyway?! she thought, and practically elbowed someone that was standing obliviously in her way.

Samara grinned, that incredible Cheshire Cat grin of hers, and stalked her prey. Being transparent and able to hover, her victim was completely clueless to her existence. This is going to be a good one, she thought as she grew closer to the unsuspecting trainer walking away from her. She hovered forward, a touch faster since the streets were full of people and she didn't want her to get lost in the crowds. Within an arm's reach of the trainer now, Samara began to put together her evil little scheme. The trainer had long blonde hair, but luckily it was styled up and fancy, that made her next move easier...

It was a soft, gentle breeze, but icy cold. Samara blew a little cold air directly at the back of the trainer's neck, hopefully sending chills down her spine. From previous experiences, the trainer would either panic and turn around, or just brush away the feeling with their hand. Regardless, this was the part where Samara appeared suddenly right in front of their face, and if she succeeded, she'd scare the living crap out of them. She prepared herself for the scare, and had JUST materialized in front of the trainer when a loud voice rang out and startled her. "SAMARA!!!" Dakota screamed, catching her in the act.

Felicity was no stranger to the antics of ghost types. Several of the crew back in Nimbasa had them and they were notorious for causing trouble and trying to scare everyone. Of course, at a busy festival like this you'd think people would keep better track of their pokemon. The cool breath on the back of her neck made her paused, lifting a hand to rub at her neck as she turned to find the culprit. There was no one there for about half a second. A heartbeat later, a Haunter had appeared and someone else had shouted something causing the Haunter to startle and not follow through with whatever it was going to do.

Felicity turned toward the sound of the voice that had called out, arms crossed and an unhappy look on her features. "You mind keeping better track of your pokemon? I have better things to do than deal with someone else's misbehaved pokemon." She called over the noise of the crowd. Honestly, she'd probably have just ignored the ghost pokemon and went about her business but heck, nothing else had provided anything approaching entertainment so far, might as well see if the trainer and her Haunter would remedy that.

So...Felicity did not start that off very well, lol. I guess we'll see how Dakota handles Felicity being a snarky brat xD

Also, sorry for the delay only for me to put up a short post. Felicity wasn't cooperating with me at all. =(

(Felicity Veleno, no worries! One of the most fun things about writing like this is the unexpected, not knowing how the other person will react, and then determining how your own character will react, it's a blast! And no worries about it being short, sometimes interactions like this have to be at first. I'm just glad for the posts for Dakota! ^.^)

Her face flushed a deep red, not only out of embarrassment but out of anger as well. Samara was a trouble-maker sometimes sure, but nothing as dramatic as this! What had gotten into her? Dakota rushed forward with her pokéball out and demanded that she returned. Samara gave a sympathetic look to the stranger before disappearing into the pokéball. It took a few seconds for Dakota to compose herself, and then she stepped forward. "I am so sorry! Really, I don't know what got into her, she's NEVER done anything like that before." she apologized, looking down at the pokéball and shaking her head.

She was a little on edge already, as she hated thick crowds of people and was still just trying to find her way back to her inn. The woman eyed her with her crossed arms, and even though everything in Dakota was screaming at her to just turn and walk away, she stayed put. This trainer looked busy and uninterested in conversation, but she had to try anyway. "Look, she's probably just bored as hell. We've been wandering these streets all evening trying to find our inn. Do you happen to know where..." she trailed off, needing to reach into her bag for her pokégear. After a few quick taps on the screen, she continued, "Hinoki Village Inn, is?"

Felicity wasn't really paying attention to the Haunter as it was recalled and didn't notice the look she was given before the ghost disappeared. The stranger apologized and Felicity shrugged a bit. Apologies were nice and all but they didn't change the fact that the ghost might have made her late for something. It hadn't, but this stranger had no way of knowing that and hadn't even bothered to address it...or to leave.

Felicity was about to brush off the apology and walk away when the stranger spoke up again. She sounded annoyed and Felicity couldn't blame her. But she was also apparently lost. Felicity had to try harder than she cared to admit not to laugh in the girl's face and walk away. It wouldn't do much good since the stranger would probably start following her being irritating and then be even more annoyed when she realized Felicity was staying at the same place she was. "Look, whatever. It's fine. Pokemon can be jerks sometimes especially if they're bored." Elsa was a prime example...though Elsa was a jerk all of the time and not just part of the time. She was worse when she was bored, however. "As it turns out, I'm staying at the Hinoki Inn too. I was just on my way to grab something to eat and then head back. if you don't mind a dinner detour I can show you back to the Inn no problem."

Dakota Gilbert
Apologies that this is a month and a half late, whoops. I'm thinking we could probably end this with Felicity showing Dakota where the inn is and move on from there since this is so late? If you'd rather have us continue on and do something more with these two we can or we can have them run into each other again at some point. It's really up to you, lol. =)

The tension in the air finally seemed to subside. The stranger's expression softened and she shrugged off the incident. As it turned out, she was staying at the same Inn Dakota was, which shouldn't have come as a surprise as Hinoki is a small village and all the tourists probably stay at that Inn. The woman offered to lead her back that direction if she didn't mind stopping for dinner along the way. Had she invited Dakota to join her for dinner? Or was this more of just finishing her errands so she could turn in for the night?

"Uh, sure. That would be great, actually. And I wouldn't mind a bite to eat myself." she responded, unsure how the woman would react at this point. In an attempt to make peace and calm things down a little bit, Dakota asked Samara to return to her pokéball. Besides, people generally avoided you if you walked into a restaurant with a ghost above your head. Samara complied, disappearing in seconds. Dakota returned the ball to her bag and offered the woman a sympathetic smirk. "After you!" she said, motioning to take the lead.

-End-
