- Don't get lostShe stared down at the egg in her arms as she walked. It was blue, with a darker blue patch on the top. There hadn't been any movement since she received it, and she didn't hear any noise whenever she put it to her ear. Maybe it wasn't an egg after all. Maybe it was just a rock painted to look like an egg - that would be just her luck. All this time, carrying around a rock thinking it would hatch. People could probably tell the difference too. They probably hid their laughter until she passed. That girl painted a rock? Hohohoo! For a brief moment she considered throwing it, smashing it against the nearest tree. Then she'd know if it was a rock or an egg.
She stopped, dead in her tracks. What was she thinking? Almost as if the smol pokemon inside could hear her thoughts, she hugged it tighter to her chest as a sort of apology. She couldn't protect this egg from others, but she could at least protect it from herself. She remembered the man who gave it to her. He seemed desperate to give it to her, on the brink of tears when she said she'd take it. She supposed it was contraband, though. She just hoped it was that that he was worried about, and not that there might be some sort of terrible monster that hatches from it.
She put her head up and continued walking. She had been walking for what seemed like forever. Coryn's lab was on the far side of Hyo, and she wanted to get as far away as possible before she caught her pokemon. Or stole one. She had considered staying in Hyo, but there were so many people and thus so many opportunities to seem suspcious, or worse to get caught. So, she decided to leave the city, and head for the hills. Or, the forest that is. She had considered the cavern, but she didn't like the thought of being boxed in. Plus, at least out here she'd be able to hear if anyone was following her. Although... Now that she thought of it, it was just her and Chihiro out here (unless this egg decided to do something besides just sit there), and the horsea would have an easier time against a bunch of cavern pokemon than the pokemon she'd meet here, probably.
She hadn't let the pokemon out of her pokeball since the mauling. She wondered how she was doing, but she was too afraid to find out. She told herself everyday that "today will be the day," but she still hadn't talked to her about what happened. And if she stumbled on a pokemon, there wouldn't be time to talk it out. It would just be release, attack, and go. Hopefully. If the horsea even still wanted to be her partner.
She let her thoughts drift away as she walked, focusing more on the physical act of walking. The path was growing not only thinner, but weedier too. Every now and then, she had to step over a branch or a big rock, and there were even occasional times when she had to stop and look for where the trail continued, only to find it a few feet away in a completely different direction. Noises came from the surrounding bushes and trees, pokemon grunts and calls. Plus, the sun was going down. All in all, it was starting to get a little creepy.deino egg 7/15
