???: Ohh. Didn’t see you there. Sorry that I bumped into you like that. Stranger: It’s alright. ???: I’m preparing myself to go to 1 of the most dangerous regions in this world. The Reborn Region. Stranger: Really? ???: I know. Crazy that anyone would actually want to go there. But I just want to really test myself and my team. I know people say that it’s a horrible place but it can’t be that bad… Can it? Stranger: Well from what I’ve heard, it’s gotten way worse. ???: Well anyways, I’m out and about getting stuff ready for my journey there. I actually leave in 2 days. A girl named Ame is supposed to come here and then ride back with me on the train. She’s the official of the league. Stranger: What does that even mean? ???: I guess that means that she owns it or is in charge of it or something like that. I’m excited but also nervous. I just don’t know what to expect. Whoops. I’ve been kind of rambling there haven’t I? Sorry. I’ll just… Stranger: Actually, why don’t you tell me a little more about yourself? I’ve got nothing better to do. ???: Ohh. You wanna know more about me? Well… Sure. Why not? This might actually help me relax a bit. I guess I should say hi first. Although, I’ve been talking to you for so long that it might be long overdue for that but whatever. It’s a pleasure to meet you. Stranger: Same to you. ???: You know, I never really met anyone that’s interested to know stuff about me. I mean, to be honest, there’s nothing special about me. Stranger: Ahh come on. Don’t be like that. I’m sure there’s something special about you. ???: I guess I should start with the basics. I have long hair, natural color. I got a beard. Blue eyes. And as you can see I like to eat. Haha. Stranger: Haha. Yea. Hmm? What’s that on your arm? ???: Ohh yea. This is actually a tattoo I got when I was 16 years old. But I am now 18. And yes. I have been on a Pokemon journey before but I didn’t get into it so I just… Stopped. Stranger: You just stopped? How? Why? Where did you even start? ???: Well, right here in fact. In the Kalos Region. I live in this city as a matter of fact. I suppose if you want the short version of beginning to end of my journey, I went to the Professor’s lab, got my starter, traveled up to my 1st gym, beat them and then I don’t know. I just didn’t feel like I was having fun. So, I just went back home and told my parents that I wasn’t going to continue on my journey. Stranger: Well gee. That sure is kind of disappointing. How did your starter feel about that? ???: It was angry at 1st. Ohh yes. I chose a Froakie. Anyways, after a while of relaxing at home with my parents, it got used to it. It’s more like my parent’s Pokemon now more than mine. I still love it but you know. They just really grew to like it and vice versa. Stranger: I can see that happening. So I guess that’s the end of your story about you then huh? ???: Well… Almost. Stranger: Well what is it? ???: I have this… Umm… I guess you could say 2nd personality. Stranger: A 2nd personality? Does it come out at random times? ???: No. It really only comes out when I feel like my life is threatened. So the only way you would be able to see it is if you or someone else made me feel like I was going to be dead right then and here. Stranger: Well wait wait. How do you know? I mean I’m not a doctor or anything but don’t most people not really know about their other personality or personalities? ???: Possibly but when it 1st happened, my parents were with me. They have no reason to lie. Plus, I feel myself get more… Crazy. Stranger: So this 2nd personality of yours is crazy and only comes out when you feel like your life is threatened. I don’t know if that’s a good thing. I mean what if that just escalates things and you do end up dead? ???: I’m not sure. But apparently, it does a good job at making the other people run away. Or even making me braver in a dire situation. I mean, I’m still here right? Haha. Stranger: True. But when did that happen? ???: Remember a couple of years ago when that Team Flare was here? Stranger: Who could forget. Their leader wanted to blow up this whole region. Crime even went up thanks to them as well. Crazy stuff ???: Well… -FLASHBACK- My parents and I planned to walk from Lumiose City to Laverre City. We were going to the PokeBall Factory to see the PokeBalls being made. Mom: Hey Froakie. You wanna come with us? Froakie: Froakie! Mom: Well come on then. We’re leaving. ???: I can’t wait to see how the PokeBalls are made. Dad: It is quite exciting to see. Are we all ready to leave? ???: Yes! Mom: Yes dear. Froakie: Froakie! Dad: Good. Let’s get going. We left the house and walked up to route 14. When we got there, everyone put on their rain coats except for me. I just put my hoodie over my hair. I didn’t want it to get wet. That bothers me. As we walked through the wet route, we heard something running in the water. We all turned around and there standing in front of us was a young man but he had something covering most of his face. All we could see was his eyes. My mom and dad put themselves in front of me as Froakie jumped in front ready to protect us. Robber: Gimme your money! Dad: No! Leave us alone! Robber: I didn’t ask. I’m DEMANDING! Give me your money! Dad: I said no! Now go. We won’t report anything to the police. Just go. Robber: Guess we gotta do this the hard way. The robber went into his pocket and slowly pulled out a knife. This made me terrified. It scared my mom a little bit too but my dad remained calm. Dad: Froakie! Get ready! Froakie: Froak! Froakie! Robber: You have a Pokemon there huh? That shouldn’t be a problem. Go Scyther! The robber threw out the PokeBall and out came the Scyther. Froakie stayed in place, not moving an inch. Not showing any fear. Dad: Froakie! Water Pulse! Froakie did as it was told and used Water Pulse on the Scyther. A direct hit but the Scyther seemed unfazed. ???: That… That did nothing to it. Robber: Hahaha! That’s supposed to hurt my Scyther? Scyther! Wing Attack that little frog! With great speed, the Scyther obeyed its trainers command and landed a powerful looking Wing Attack on the Froakie. It landed behind me, fainted. The robber grinned knowing he had gotten rid of the only threat in his way. Robber: Now, as I said, hand over your money! Dad: Grrr! Why you-! My dad lunged at the robber and tried to punch him. Unfortunately, he missed and the robber swung the knife in my father’s direction, slicing his arm. My mom ran over to him and knelt down to make sure he was ok. Mom: Oh my Arcues! Are you ok hun? Dad: Yea. He only got my arm. Robber: Try that again and I swear to Arcues, it’ll be your neck! The robber looked towards me. He grinned, looked back at my parents and then ran over to me and held the knife to my neck. At this point, I was petrified. Robber: Well what do you plan to do now? Mom: No! Please don’t hurt him! Dad: If you hurt him, I’ll… I’ll… Robber: Grieve? Because you try anything else and I’m slitting this kids throat. As this all was going on, I suddenly felt like my consciousness was going away. But I knew I was still standing. And that’s when it happened. I started to feel more free. More brave. But also, a bit more crazy. My body went limp for about a second or 2 which angered the robber. Robber: Hey! Keep on your feet kid or you’ll end up in a body bag! At that moment, my eyes flung wide open and I smiled a weird, big smile. Crazy ???: OoOoOoOoOhHhHhHhH EXCELLENT! Please introduce me to the bag of which you speak of. Yeeeeees. The robber looked at me and must have been freaked out with my facial expression and what I said because he let go of me and jumped back. Robber: Wha-… Stop that or else kid! Mom: What’s going on? Dad: Son? Crazy ???: Me stop? OoOoOoOo. But it is you who should stop before something OUT OF THIS WORLD happens to you guy that is bad. Robber: What is WRONG with your kid?! Crazy ???: I have laid dormant in this vessel for years. Ever since this beings journey of being created through the rituals of said mother and father! I have promised myself to protect this being for as long as I can. Which means people like you are not allowed to destroy him! Do I make myself clear? Everyone was stunned. Mom and dad didn’t know what to make of their son talking crazy and the robber was just scared out of his mind. Robber: Yo-You… I’ll be… Stay back! Crazy ???: -crazy laugh- You still wield the object that is intended to cut one’s throat. If that is the case, then be prepared to be DELETED! Mwahahahahahaha! I then started to walk towards the robber while swaying my arm in a slashing motion while chanting “DELETE!” to him. Robber: What the… Fuck this! I’m getting out of here! You can keep your money! Your son is a freak! Return Scyther! The robber returned his Pokemon back to his PokeBall and then ran away from us. I walked up to my parents, who were still on the ground, and looked the way the robber had run off. Crazy ???: WONDERFUL! I looked down to my parents. My dad was still holding his arm, which was bleeding less, and my mom was holding him up but they both stared at me with confusion but also with fear. Crazy ???: Do not worry father and mother of this vessel. I shall only emerge out when this being’s life feels threatened. Perhaps I shall see you both soon. -laughs loudly- As soon as I was done laughing, my body went limp and I fell to the floor. My mom ran over to me and lifted my body off of the floor. My dad returned Froakie to its PokeBall and helped mom to carry me back home where they laid me on the couch. -FLASHBACK END- Stranger: Wow. That’s an intense but exciting story. Is your dad ok? ???: Ohh yea. They went to the hospital after they brought me home and he got stitches. It’s all better now. Stranger: Well that’s good at least. Do you ever remember anything when you’re in your “crazy” mode? ???: I remember bits and pieces. But a lot of it is usually a blur. But I usually get filled in. Stranger: Ahh. So it has happened more than just that 1 time. ???: Yes. Several times actually. Stranger: Well at least it only seems to go after the bad guys. ???: Yea. That’s true. And I’m grateful for that. Ohh geez. It’s getting late. I didn’t know it was that dark already. Stranger: Haha. Well it was nice talking to you. Definitely made my day more interesting. ???: Haha. Well I’m glad I could help with your day. Stranger: Haha. Yea. Thanks. ???: Hey. You gonna be around here tomorrow? I leave the next day and I figured you’d want to see my team before I leave. Stranger: You already own a full team of Pokemon? ???: Yea. I’ll tell you tomorrow how I met them all. Stranger: That sounds great. I’d love that. ???: Well great. I’ll see you tomorrow then. Stranger: Sweet. Ohh wait. You know, we’ve been talking for so long and I never got your name. Haha. ???: Wait. We’ve been talking this whole time and I never gave you my name? Stranger: Nope. Matthew: My apologies for that. My name is Matthew.
