Yo. I felt like doing a sequel to my very first fic EVER, Shadows of Fear.
Basically, this'll be a lot better than the first one. Hope at least SOME people like this.
I think I'm better at video game ratings than movie ratings, so I'd rate this.......E10, for ages 10 and up.
My name’s Skull. Skull the Shadow Marowak. You’ve probably heard of me.
If not, then I’ll fill you in.
Five years ago, I was a normal Marowak.
Five years ago, I was made what I am now by an organization of humans known as Team Cipher.
Five years ago, I led a rebellion consisting entirely of Shadow Pokemon.
Five years ago, I knocked my old human enslaver, a human named Eldes, into the sea surrounding a very deadly island along with one of his slaves, a Metagross.
Five years ago, I became famous for securing my freedom, and having a Lapras for an adopted sister.
Five years ago, I found a mate, named Bonette. Then, I had a son named Cubon. Bonette died after giving birth to little Cubon, and, despite a Marowak mother’s death after giving birth being part of nature, I grieved with all my heart.
Five years ago, I thought myself to be free from humankind, and their endless, relentless greed.
I thought wrong.
I heard news from a passing Pidgeotto that humans in armor were coming this way.
Humans I knew all too well.
Five years ago, I’d have just rushed in, beat the living crap outta them, then release their slaves. But now that I have a son, I couldn’t let him become a brainwashed, soulless slave.
I ran away, my son in tow. We ran through the mountains where we lived, through forests housing Grass Pokemon, around lakes containing Water Pokemon, and even through volcanic ash, just to escape the humans from Cipher.
But, no matter how much we ran, Cipher just wouldn’t give up. They wanted me and, possibly, my son, real bad, I could tell that. There was only one thing left to do…
…and that was fight.
I fought as hard as I could possibly can. But, despite my strong efforts, we were both captured. I saw Eldes’ face before we zonked out because of human devices called “tranquilizer darts”, and I knew that he had survived being knocked into the water by a Metagross’ collision.
Cubon was sent into the wild, deemed too weak to become a Shadow Pokemon. I desperately hoped that he would find a safe family to raise him, just as I did when I was a Cubone.
I remember glaring into Eldes’ face, hating him even more for every mocking word he said.
“Stupid Marowak,” I remembered him say “you’ve gotten weak, soft. But don’t worry, that doesn’t mean we don’t have a use for you...”
Damn...Just thinking about that human scumbag makes me wanna puke.
Anyway, the last thing I remember is being sent to a battling building called a “collosseum” in Pyrite Town, where I was to be given away as a prize to the human slave driver who would defeat the other slave drivers.
Despite my getting a bit more tolerant of humans over the years…
…their views of us being tools meant to be abused, sold and given away still make me sick.
I think the first round of the tournament is starting now. Let’s see if the one who wins is worthy of my respect…
…which I seriously doubt.
Read, review and rate!
