It was a perfect day to start a journey, with the sun shining brightly, and many small clouds dotting the sky.
Katsushige and his Electrike, Kiba, had recently arrived in the Arcane Realm, and had started their way down a long road that would eventually take them to their first, unchosen destination. The road winded through a seemingly endless, unchanging landscape of rolling hills and open countryside.
Both of them were staring into the sky at the clouds as they walked, (As it seemed more interesting then what surrounded them on the ground), perfectly silent, and letting their minds wander.
Katsushige, after sometime, decided to break the silence, and spoke what was on his mind to Kiba, saying "Are you really okay with this whole battling thing? I mean, in the five years of your life, you haven't once gotten into a fight with another Pokemon."
Kiba seemed to think for a moment, then replied with a short "Ra", and a nod of his head.
Continuing on, Katsushige said, "The only thing we have to go off of are those training sessions we had a few days before we left. In a real fight you could get really hurt or even...I don't want to think about it. But battles are inevitable, so I suppose there's no use worrying about it. I'll just do all I can to make sure none of those things happen to you."
After a while, the two came to a crossroad, with one path leading to the town of Mediville in the distance, and the other continuing off into the wilderness. Katsushige stopped to think for a moment, closing his eyes, and putting his hand on his chin, while Kiba sat, seemingly anxious to hear his decision.
About half a minute later, Katsushige opened his eyes, and announced his decision, saying "We're going to that town over there.", pointing his finger in the direction of Mediville. "Considering our relative lack of battling experience, it would be foolish to head out into the wilderness. Let's get some practice, and maybe then we can go somewhere a little more interesting".
No sooner then Katsushige had finished his last sentence, Kiba took off at maximum speed (Which, of course, was very fast) in the direction of Mediville, eager to get a closer look.
Katsushige sighed, and smiled, before running after his friend, who had come to a stop a short ways from the town, and was waiting patiently...
