It seemed like time had passed from somewhere from a lot to an eternity while Joshua was in the water. He had done some basic exercises now that he was in the water anyways, and had spent a long time drifting about. At least it felt that way. It had probably not been more than 15 minutes or so. Either way, he could tell Azoth was getting bored, as he swam around more hastilly than before. Maybe he was hungry? What was Jace doing? the whole situation suddenly turned somewhat chaotic for Josh, and he called to Gyarados. "Azoth, could you take us back to the beach" he said, and rather quickly, Azoth appeared from underneath him, towering high up over the water ssurface, with Josh on his head. For some reason, the Gyarados really liked it when Josh rode on his head. While this was going on, Josh, while holding on to Azoths headfin, thought about his Empoleon, and wondered where he could be. It appeared he had moved around since they got into the water, and at first glance, they couldn't spot him.
Jace the Empoleon had gone in hiding behind some of the more tropical trees by the beach, after more and more children had shown interest in him. He didn't know how, or why kids were so interested in him, but it was getting somewhat ridiculous, so he took refugee by the trees, and befirended an Exeggutor in the meantime. He could still see the water, and saw that Josh and Azoth was on their way back to the beach, with Josh riding the Gyarados like he used to do back home in Humilau City. Seeing them like that made him want to play too! But he was on guard-duty, watching over Josh's bag, and he was fine with that! His sandcastle-seplica of the Froslass caverns had been a success, until the children arrived. Their parents were around too, spouting excuses like "Oh, don't worry, they'll calm down soon.", "We're sorry to bother you, could you look after them two seconds?" and "You don't know how hard it is to get a baby at the age of 17!!!!". It had been a weird day so far, despite the fact that all this had happened over the course of about 15 minutes or so. It didn't matter, Jace liked the sun, and was always the one to goof off at the each rather than being in the water.
either way, Jace and Exeggutor had found their way back to the beach. Exeggutor just straight ahead admitted he was bored, and wanted to hang out. Apparently, being a background-image on a beach wasn't as interesting as all the Wingulls and Krabby's made it seem. Jace had Josh's bag around his shoulder, and Exeggutor had somehow gotten his shirt stuck in his leaves. The two of them steadily made their way over to where it looked like Azoth would appear, until they both froze in place. "Hey! The penguin is over there!" the sound of a squeeky girl with blonde pigtails and braces was heard, and the two Pokemon turned around to see her pointing towards them. Behind her was 4 other kids, all way too eager to find them, and they started to make chase.
Jace and Exeggutor both started running in a mild panic across the beach, while the sound of the horde followed up. Hopefully, everything would be fine once they got to where Josh would be. He would make the kids go away! Hopefully.. Maybe Azoth could eat them! Nah, that may be a bit harsh.. He could go 'boo', and they would run? too many thoughts ran through Jace's mind as he ran. Azoth did have that intimidating gaze that more often than not scared away more or less anyone who dared coming near. On their way, they saw Azoth and Josh on the beach, but between the duo and them, there was a lady and her Clefable sunbathing, while seemingly being social with another lady and her Archen and Carbink. At their speed, they would have to do some sort of awesome movie-manouver to avoid them in slow motion, but stuff like that never happened. But that didn't mean they couldn't try!
"Emp, Empoleon!" Jace shouted to Exeggutor, and the two had a brief moment of understanding. Jace nodded, and Exeggutor nodded in response, before glowing blue as he used his Psychic-Move, lifting Jace up into the air before he could hit the two ladies. In the air, Jace flapped his flippers, trying to fly the short distance before landing. Unbeknown to him though, Penguins in general can't fly well. He majestically soared over the two ladies while flapping his flippers, which of course resulted in half the bags content to spill out in the sand around the ladies, before Jace himself fell down on the sand on the other side.
The trip back to the beach was pretty chill, and from high up in the air on Azoths head, the wind almost instantly dried Josh from head to toe, saving him the trouble of wetting his towel later on. This was also one o the things he really enjoyed. Not only being in the water, but being up close and friendly with them. That's the true way to get to know people and pokemon alike, in his opinion. though he couldn't soar the skies on the head of his buddies back home, the experience with Azoth was just magical, likely by the fact of how obvious Azoth was with how much he enjoyed it himself. It also made him calm down a bit, almost forgetting about Jace, who he had caught a glimpse of in the trees earlier. The plans were that when they got back, Josh would go get something to eat, before possibly exploring the variety of stands selling merchandise. He had gotten spesific orders from back home as of what to bring and what items to buy for his parents.
Getting back to the beach, both Josh and Azoth stretched out, Azoth earning quite a few stares from people around. Josh was about to call Azoth back to his Pokeball when some commotion caught his attention. He turned around to see two ladies and their Pokemon conversing a little further away. Nothing special in particular, but the fact that Jace was having an "I believe I can Fly"-moment a few feet over the two ladies, wawing his flippers in a somewhat crazy manner, dropping half of his bags content. Josh culd only stand there, gaping towards the scenery like a fool, with Azoth doing the same. Jace then pummeled to the ground, kicking up sand in all directions. It seemed to miss any people around, but still. It was quite... interesting? To watch. The silence that followed was painful. One couldn't see it too well, but one could definitely feel the stares of people around, judging. The silence was broken off when an Exeggutor came walking past the ladies, looking somewhat worried at Jace, who was just laying in the sand wallowing in self-pity and embarrassment. As Josh came to as well, he started noticing his stuff in the sand next to the two sunbathing women. He dared not make eye contact with either of them, and awkwardly walked in a circle around them to pick up his stuff. A toothbrush here, a spare hoodie there, his boxers..? Perfect.... Hey! the towel is full of sand now!. He also snatched his shirt from Exeggutors leaves and stuffed it into the bag he took from Jace with the rest of his stuff. He then turned to the ladies, one with black hair and the other with Brown. Both looking dashing in their swimsuits. He bowed deeply as he spoke. "I am very sorry for the commotion, ladies!!" he was also blushing, and a small part of him hoped this sudden turn of events was just a bad daydream or something. Azoth was behind him, laughing, Jace was in the sand, mumbeling with his face down, and Exeggutor just somewhat danced around .... ....
