Guardian of Fate
The sounds of battle clashed harshly in a cavern several feet away from Iris. She fixed her crown as she wondered what was happening in there.
A bead of sweat trickled down her face. She swallowed her fear and boldly ran towards it. She was the maiden who knew the hearts of dragons after all. If anyone was to calm the creature, it'd be her.
Almost instantly she was greeted by a blast of cold wind.
Icicles covered the roof of the cave. Some even covered the ground, so sharp which looked like if she touched on it would break her skin.
Her eyes widened at the vicious battle she saw take place. A Simisage violently fired seeds at the giant ice dragon's side and a Serperior wrapped its long body around the monstrosity to tangle up its legs.
"Finish it up Ferrothorn! Iron Head, now!" a voice said. It was a callous and distant voice—for a moment she even wondered if it was even human.
With outstanding power, the Iron Barb Pokemon tackled the dragon.
Instantly, Iris felt a spasm of pain rush through her body—Kyurem's pain. The mighty dragon keeled over in agony. It was beginning to struggle, and its sides heaved with every breath.
It was already hurt and confused; she couldn't understand how anyone could be so oblivious to the Pokemon's feelings.
Bunching up the energy in her legs she broke out into a fast run. "STOP!" she said, her brows furrowed angrily.
The young man who commanded Ferrothorn turned to her, a warning glare within his piercing green eyes. The shadows and reflections of light made identifying him tough. He wore a defiant frown and raggedy clothes. It was clear that his Pokemon weren't the only ones who had taken damage.
With a small nod to his Ferrothorn, the iron Pokemon lumbered its way towards her at a surprising speed and swung a giant spiked vine. By instinct she flinched away, with the spikes barely nicking her throat.
Relentless and determined, it swung its deadly arm towards her again, but this time she was ready for it and nimbly jumped over it.
"Finish it, Serperior!" the boy said. The long snake Pokemon slithered streamline, positioning itself in an attack stance. Baring its fangs, a purple-blue energy formed in its mouth.
Iris knew that Kyurem couldn't take much more suffering. Quickly, she tried to grab her Haxorus's Poke Ball. If she could distract Serperior for a moment she could save it.
Suddenly, the beast's eyes radiated a blood-red. Angrily, it flailed its long neck, shattering large columns of ice. Its deadly fangs glinted a lustrous white as it roared.
At blinding speed a large, muscular tail knocked both Serperior and Simisage hard against the cave wall, shattering large pieces of rock.
"Kyurem! Listen to me—"
"Get out of here!" the boy yelled and began to back up.
It roared ferociously again.
This time it caused a buildup of ice shards around it and blizzard-like weather filled the cavern.
Large, electrically-charged icicles formed from the beast's arms.
Iris's heart pounded.
Time seemed to slow down as they were fired towards her—until suddenly, the cavern was bathed in a gentle, luminous green light.
Iris bolted awake. Small blades of grass tickled her legs and the neighboring trees stood strong and sturdy. Their stiff arms extended into the ivory moonlight as night Pokemon sung their evening chorus.
She sighed and pulled her blanket up to her neck.
It was just a dream.
