 (!) A Cry for Help, Was that a cry she heard or the wind?

Hinoki Village was one of her most favorite places to visit. It had nothing to do with the fact that she and Vex shared their first kiss here under the cherry blossom trees back at the Cherry Blossom Festival, nope! Not at all. Aside from that though, it was a beautiful little village. It reminded her of those renaissance faire's that made you feel like you were in a different time period. It was hard to shake off that fairy-tale feeling, especially after her time here with Vex. So this evening, as she took a stroll through the dimly-lit cobblestone streets, she was clearly very distracted.

She had just reached the outskirts of the village, which consisted of a lot less homes and people and a lot more trees and vegetation. She hadn't been out this far before, and exploring the wild was a touch refreshing. Not only was the night air cool and crisp, but the steady sound of buzzing and chirping bugs echoed all around her. The stars in the sky were brighter than she was used to, given that there wasn't a lot of light pollution out here. The moon was also very bright, even at half-full. There was a soft crunch of leaves and twigs with each step she took as she ventured even further out of town.

A sudden cry rang out through the trees, and Aria stopped in her tracks. Was that a cry for help? Or a cry of "leave me alone?" She wasn't sure, and chose to stay still and listen in case she heard it again. She had no idea what it was but the cry did not really sound threatening. She took another step and the leaves under her feet crunched again. Nothing. After a shrug, she continued on her walk, curious about the noise and where it came from. Maybe it was nothing, or maybe a wild pokémon stubbed its toe. Either way, she'd be here if it needed her help or she'd give it some space.

The young vulpix feared that no one would come to her aid. There were pokemon in the wilds that would just as soon take advantage of her situation, rather than help her. Despite, she was stuck, and didn't know what to do. Fretfully, she cried out a second time. Her hind leg was snared in a poacher's trap. The tight fishing line was wrapped about her foot, keeping her from moving. Her foot hurt a lot, and she wasn't sure that she'd be able to use it-were she to ever free herself. Was it possible that she'd die here?

Trembling in fear, the Vulpix called for help yet again, praying that someone would hear her. Laying down on her side, lest she cause further injury to her leg, she waited. Panting heavily, for she had struggled a fair bit in the beginning, she hoped that her rescuer would show themselves sooner rather than later. ~Please... anyone...~ she cried, laying her head down in the grass resignedly. She may be here for some time.

If no one came along-if no one came, well... She didn't think she had the heart to do what may need to be done, were no one to appear. If she stayed here and the trapper showed up she may be attacked. She had little idea of the intentions behind whomever had set this particular trap, but she doubted it was good. The snare hurt, a lot, and was capable of removing her leg entirely. She had every right to be afraid. Her fur was damp, and sweaty, from exertion. How much longer could she remain like this?

Aria Wolfe - hope it's okay ~

There it was again, another soft cry. There had to be something or someone nearby that was trying to get attention. Aria stood up on her tiptoes and took a good look around, but all she could see was the scattered leaves on the grass between the trees. A little frustrated, she reached into her bag and fumbled with her pokéballs. Who would be the best choice for this situation? She was worried she might scare whatever it was off if she chose one of her larger pokémon, but both her flying types that could get a better vantage point were a pretty good size. "Ah!" she let out, knowing exactly who could help right now. Once her fingers found the right pokéball, she tossed it gently onto the ground in front of her.

After a brief flash of light, the pokéball returned to her hand and Auron, her scruffy little Poochyena, landed in the leaves. Aria knelt down and quickly put a finger to her lips, hoping he wouldn't bark or make any loud noises. He looked right at her and his eyes widened, and he gave her a nod. "I need your help, there's a noise I keep hearing and it sounds like a cry for help, but I can't see anything. Are you picking up a scent here at all?" she whispered with a smile. His little nostrils immediately began to flare as he started sniffing, and he turned back towards the ground. He took a few steps in one direction, then another, and then turned around again... and Aria stood still not knowing which way to follow him.

Finally, he let out a little yip of excitement before trotting forward, and Aria followed carefully behind. She made a mental note to give him a handful of treats later if he found the source of the cries with his nose. As they walked, his nose led him over to this tree and that tree and this bush... and for a minute Aria wondered if he was even really following a scent at all. She was just about to open her mouth and inquire when Auron came to a stop. His little ears perked straight up and his tail began to wag back and forth. "Oh?" Aria wondered as she peered over him attempting to see what he sees.

Nestled by the nearest tree in a mixture of twigs and leaves was something furry. It was a deep chestnut brown color with a thick furry tail and black nose. It was panting, its fur was all kinds of disheveled, and it wasn't immediately running away from her. There was definitely something wrong. "Oh goodness! What's the matter little thing, are you okay?" she asked, and immediately knelt down to the ground. Not seeing anything immediately wrong with the creature, Aria tried to get a better look by moving some of the leaves out of the way. When her hand uncovered a poachers trap, her stomach sank and she frowned. Her heart broke just looking at the poor creature's foot tangled up in the snare. "Seriously??" she couldn't help but curse at whatever horrible person could put this here.

Another whimper from the creature put her right into action. First things first. The creature was clearly very stressed and in pain, so Aria started off with one of her medication-infused berries. The poor thing was probably too stressed to eat, but she set the berry near its face anyway. "This will help with the pain if you're up for eating it." she stated and continued. Now that she didn't have to worry about the pokémon running away, she could move quickly and not worry about startling it. In a swift motion she pulled her supply bag off her shoulder and dug through it.

She began to worry she wouldn't be able to help, not with the trap anyway. Sure, being a nurse her bag was filled to the brim with medical supplies she might need, but she didn't carry tools or wire cutters or anything that could help her with the metal. She did have a pair of metzenbaum surgical scissors she could attempt to use on the snare, but it would most likely ruin the scissors since it was made out of some type of wire. In this very moment however, Aria didn't care about that. She pulled her bandage material from her bag along with her antiseptic scrub and a pair of gloves in preparation for when the paw was freed from the trap. With scissors in hand, she leaned forward and paused. "If you don't mind, I can try to help set you free and bandage you up. It might be uncomfortable though, and treating your paw might hurt, but if you can trust me for just a minute and eat that berry I can help you." she explained, not wanting to dive in without warning the pokémon first.

(Of course it's okay, thanks so much for volunteering!! I originally wrote this super long post but cut it back because otherwise this might end too quickly, lol! Let me know if I need to make changes. I wanted to give her a chance to respond to the berry offering before I continued...)

{ Hey, not a problem! xD Just wasn't sure if this was the type of situation you were hoping for or what... Hope it suited your needs! I totally understand that she'd be quick to help, it's all good. I just wanted to give you a background for her that would fit Aria's current job status. }

The voice of an angel-that was the only way she could think of to describe it. Her head was terribly fuzzy, and the world was starting to go round. Sounds came in and out, only seeking to further disorient her world. Nothing made sense, other than her pain, and this one voice that somehow broke through it all. "Okay?" Was she okay? She didn't know... was she? Nothing felt certain. Infection was, very likely, already setting in. She wasn't sure how long she'd been here, like this. All she knew was that she needed the pain to stop. It was all too much.

Aria sprung into action, which the Vulpix would be mighty thankful for later on. She rummaged through... something. A boulder, a rock? Such is what the girls bag appeared to be, to the eyes of the pained fire-fox. She kept lifting her head and then setting it down again, trying to get a better idea of the movement about her. The young woman had uttered the word "help" and placed something by her. She detected concern, and desperation. Both were what she herself felt and so it was no surprise that she was hypersensitive to both. She could smell the uncertainty coming from the girl, which gave her an even greater appreciation for what she was trying to do.

If she ate... If she ate the berry? The berry would help? The fact that the girl was holding scissors had eluded her. She could only focus on one thing at a time. As tense as her stomach was, and despite how nauseated she felt, she managed to do as she was told. Swallowing up the berry, the Vulpix was quick to whimper thereafter. It was difficult to tell if her whimper was due to the increasing pain, or meant as a weak means of thanks. She was trying her best not to be difficult for her guardian angel. She wanted help, and Aria was here to help her.

The taste of the berry was bitter on her tongue, shocking her system enough to aid in semi-awareness. It would take some time for the effect of the berry to sink in, but even so, there would be relief. Aria had arrived just in the knick of time. Who knows what would have happened to the Vulpix had the girl not shown up...

(Kaskae Dawson that's so considerate of you!! Haha, thank you! I love that Aria gets to be in her element!~)

To her immediate relief, the helpless little fox worked up the strength to lick up the berry and swallow it. A tiny victory but a great start, for once the pain medication began to take effect not only would the fox feel relief, but be able to relax and not stress as well. Aria finished getting what she needed from her bag and laid down a soft towel to serve as her work space. After she was all set up, she took the scissors to the snare and tried everything she could to wear down the wire and cut through it. It took a while, a lot longer than Aria would have liked, but eventually the wire began to fray and she was able to cut through it, releasing the paw from the trap.

Moving quickly, she opened the container of antiseptic scrub and pulled on a pair of sterile gloves. Taking a few soaked gauze squares, she very gently scrubbed the torn and abrased parts of the paw, cleaning it thoroughly in hopes to prevent any further infection. She pressed some dry gauze squares on it for a moment to dry it, and then proceeded to bandage it. After applying an antibiotic ointment to the affected areas, she covered it with a non-adherent gauze pad and wrapped it with a cotton roll. After that, she pulled a stretchy bandage material over it that self-adhered to stay in place. She added one small piece of tape at the top to keep it from slipping, and then sat back on her rear and sighed with relief.

She looked the little fox-like pokémon over before offering a sympathetic smile. "I hope you're starting to feel better." she said, unsure if the berry was taking effect or not yet. "That bandage will need to stay on for a few days..." she added, trailing off as her brain struggled for the next words. This was always the tough part. She of course needed to continue to treat her, she needed medications and possibly another bandage if this one became soiled. However, it was against Aria's nature to take the pokémon with her without asking permission first. It was always up to the pokémon, because some preferred to run on home and rejoin their families or friends.

This case was a little worse than usual. The poor fox seemed to be very weak, and maybe even slipping in and out of consciousness the way its head was heavy and bobbing. If the little gal passed out, Aria would have no choice but to scoop her up and run her to back to the pokémon center in town. Honestly, that was probably the best course of action for the victim anyway, so Aria knelt down closer and gently gave the fox a pet on the head. "Actually, we should really get you to the hospital and have you properly treated. Is that okay? I can bring you back here as soon as you're patched up if you'd like..." she offered, again trailing off. Her fingers trembled as she pet the poor creature, worried that if she were to deny her offer she might not make it.

Was she free? Had the girl really done it? Slowly but surely the berry was starting to take effect. Taking a deep, shaky, breath, the Vulpix came to settle while the girl dressed her wound. It stung, whatever was put on it, but the Vulpix realized the young woman was only trying to help her. Once the wound was bandaged up, the Vulpix blinked her large eyes up at Aria. She wanted to thank her, but she knew not how. Would she understand her if she spoke? She opened her mouth, but nothing came out. With a tired sigh, she rested her head back down.

Before she knew it, the girl was talking again. The Vulpix found her voice to be soothing, especially as she began to drift off. She was struggling, desperately, to remain conscious. She just wasn't strong enough... She couldn't fight anymore... She needed to rest.

Judging by the intonation of the girls voice she was asking her a question. What was it she was meant to say? What answer would help the girl to understand how thankful she was, and that she knew everything would be alright now? A soft woof escaped her, or perhaps it was more like a mewl. Well, either way, it was a clear sound of acceptance. Then, without warning, the Vulpix dragged herself forward carefully. Up into the girls lap she went, her forepaws resting on the girls legs whilst her head had fallen in the dead centre of Aria's lap. There she would remain, at least for now...

The world around her went black, but she wasn't scared. This kind human would take care of her, of that she was sure. Not all humans were bad after all. ~Thank you,~ she squeaked, though the voice was only in her head. ~Thank you for helping me.~

The Wild Vulpix is ready to go with Aria!

The little fox managed to summon up enough strength to move, climb up onto her lap, and rest its head. Her heart broke in two just then. How on earth could anyone leave out a trap like this?? Look at this poor thing!! Her eyes filled with tears but she blinked them back and rested her hand on the fox's body. "I am so... so sorry. Whoever did this..." she tried to say, but couldn't even finish her sentence in fear of bursting into tears.

The body in her lap went limp. Aria swallowed hard and scooped the poor little thing into her arms. A single tear escaped down her cheek, but she had to stay focused. She had a job to finish. She didn't even bother to pack her supplies back up, instead leaving them in a pile in the leaves. She could come back for them later. Right now this creature in her arms needed her, and her time was fading fast. She took to a sprint, trying to move as fast as possible but keep the pokémon in her arms safe. As quickly as she could, she rushed back to town and to the nearest pokémon center.



(Kaskae Dawson Thank you so much!!~)
