The Zorua jumped and avoided the blast from the screech, and as it jumped down from the ledge you noticed it had a pack on it, woven from grass. You thought how odd it was, but as soon as the pokemon landed, it took off back from where you had just come. Why was that?
Maybe you just scared it off, but you remained alert in case it was just another illusion. And if it was, it was a darn good illusion.
Meanwhile, the Cubone in Ares' arms ate the sitrus berry Ares handed it, But it started crying again. Why?
Was it still in pain... or something else?
These thoughts rolled over and over in your head as you and your pokemon ran down the corridor.
However, you were forced to stop again, as you came upon a split in the path, two options this time.
Down the left corridor, you heard the sounds of voices, maybe other trainers exploring the same caverns as you?
Down the right corridor, it seemed to give off heat, as if there was magma down that tunnel or a magma pool. You could carry the cubone in your arms and have Artemis fly you over the pool.
What should you do? Is it an illusion by the trickster fox? Or, are they both real paths? Only one way to find out unless you choose to backtrack.
Meanwhile, while you are at the next split, the Zorua ran back to the previous split and came out of the same left cavern you had entered, but instead of it choosing a path, it seemed to walk through a wall in between the middle and right cavern. Disappearing from anyone's sight.
The Zorua made a hasty retreat as soon as Gjoll screeched at it. "Ha" Jayson scoffed, the Zorua clearly was smart enough to know when it was outmatched. Genghis managed to get the Cubone to eat the Sitrus Berry, however the Cubone quickly started crying again. Did it not like the flavour of the berry? Or maybe he'd misread the situation with the Zorua and the fox was actually the Cubone's friend. If that was the case the Dark type would likely return and Jayson wouldn't be so hasty to just it. As they ran down the corridor it eventually split, leaving them with another decision to make. Two options, voices seemed to travel from one tunnel, while the other gave as heat. Heat like that generally had one source, magma....
Jayson was unsure on what path to take, but then suddenly he was struck by an idea! "We will use the Cubone's crying to our advantage", the trainer claimed as his Pokemon stared at him with curiosity. "Well it seems to cry more when something doesn't go the way it wants. So first we will start going down the left tunnel, just to see how it reacts. Then we will turn back and go down the right tunnel and see if it reacts better or worse! Which ever tunnel generates a better reaction from the Cubone is the one we will take. If we head down the left tunnel, you all need to be ready in case we meet some resistance." If they took the right tunnel, Jayson would recall everyone except Genghis and release Artemis once more to fly him, the Cubone and Genghis over any magma that blocked their way. His plan was fool proof or at least he hoped it was!
