“<Too slow,>” Champ rose to his feet, smirking. “<Good luck trying to roast the ‘C-Train’!>”
“<Hey, C-Train!>” Angel shouted from the sideline. “<Your caboose is on fire.>”
“<Wha?>” Champ turned around and looked at the fire quickly spreading from his tail to his backside.
Amber was rolling around on the ground in laughter as Champ literally jumped twenty feet in the air, hands over his flaming fundament as Travis fumbled near his belt.
“Meru, use Water Gun!!” in a flash of light, the Kitide appeared, seeing the fire immediately and shooting a jet of water right at the offending area.
Travis went googly-eyed as Champ went careening toward Amber, who had no time to get out of the way.
Upon hearing the almighty crash that occurred next, Reivyn, Angel, and Crescent all stood up and looked in that direction, where there was now a cloud of dust.
“<Wow…aggressive. If you want me back, just say so.>” Amber’s voice emerged from the settling cloud first. When it dissipated, it revealed a soaking-wet Champ lying limply over Amber, who was on her back.
“<Amber….shut – the – hell – up,>” Champ’s response came in short stabs.
“<Did I overdo it?>” Meru tilted her head at the sight, trying her level best to hold in a laugh.
“<I don’t know – am I supposed to be on the ground, feeling like I just got hit by a ton of bricks?>” Champ asked.
“<Don’t blame yourself, Meru,>” Amber said airily. “<He just can’t resist my charm.>”
“<You’d better hope that there isn’t a Pokémon hell,>” Champ grumbled. “<If you say another word…>”
“<You’ll do what?>” Amber threw Champ off herself and rolled to her feet. “<Face it – I just totally pwned you.>”
Angel and Crescent blinked.
“<Please don’t tell me that she just used ‘pwned’ in a sentence like it was a normal word,>” Angel remarked.
A huge sweatdrop appeared by Crescent’s hopelessly shaking head.
