“<Hmm... He seems awfully suspicious out there...>” Corphish mused, narrowing his eyes suspiciously.
“Who? Blitz?” Kevin asked, casting a look his way.
Corphish nodded. “<Our lives are basically in his scythes... his razor sharp scythes.>”
“Corphish...” Jeff warned, shifting away from the window nervously.
“<Like a Scytherian Grim Reaper...>” Corphish whispered. “<All he has to do is cut that cable and we all go splat! Maybe he has unfinished business... in Jeff!>” The water type turned and pointed his pincer dramatically at his trainer.
By this point, Jeff was more nervous than a Steelix in the middle of the ocean with a child’s life preserver. He recoiled in terror, partially to avoid getting cuffed in the face by Corphish’s large claw. “What?!”
Corphish lunged up onto Jeff’s chest, clutching his shirt with his pincers and glaring into his eyes. “<You! He couldn’t kill you last time, so now he wants to finish the job! With him out there and us in here, now’s his chance! All he has to do is->” Corphish snapped one of his claws shut in front of Jeff’s face, imitating the cutting of a wire, causing the human to jump. “<And then KABLOOEY!>”
“...Why would the cable car explode, Corphish?” Blane asked, raising an eyebrow.
Corphish gave him a dry stare. “<...Uhh, we’re right next to a volcano? I thought you trainers were supposed to be smart.>”
“There’s ‘Corphish smart’ and then there’s ‘everybody else smart’,” Jeff deadpanned, trying to cover up the fact that his legs were trembling.
“<Why, thank you, Jeff!>” Corphish replied happily, hopping down beside Daedalus and Drezdk.
“<That was mean, you know,>” Daedalus whispered, gesturing to the inwardly terrified Jeff.
Corphish giggled. “<I have to entertain myself somehow. Did I have you guys going?>”
