    Default Ultra Wormhole: Liam

    (( Archive is here! ))

    NBP #2
    Babbs was a survivalist through and through--you didn't live as long as she did without being one. She'd learned that the world would chew you up and spit you out if you let it. Her calm came from less of experience with the wormhole and more of experience with the real world; in the Park, panic killed. Her beating heart mimicked Liam's, thundering within her chest as it always did at the thought of maybe not spitting them out in one piece this time.

    He takes it better than most. Well, better than the one that had screamed in terror, only for the silencing vacuum that swallowed his cries to scare him more. The poor kid had royally lost his mind, and kept screaming, unable to harness the strange space's telepathy in his panic. There was something primal and terrifying about not even having the power to cry out and express your fear. Babbs' eyes turn a bit hazy at the thought of it, a bit troubled, but she quickly returns to the universe she's supposed to be in as the kid drifts over.

    The youth's blue eyes drift to a vibrant pink portal, whose light casts pale against their skin and violet in his eyes. He confirms his selection, voice bounding into her head, perhaps a little louder than needed, but she knew it was hard to get used to at first. Liam drifts toward the portal and Babbs reaches, reaches out to clasp knobby fingers gently about his left shoulder in the moment before they're drawn in.

    There's that feeling again, of nothingness, but it's much shorter this time, spanning across a blink of an eye rather than seeming like it bridged decades. The world blinks into view in front of them, the very fabric of existence unraveling in every direction out to the horizon.

    Dense trees tower before them, supported by thick, ancient trunks. It's warm, damp, the high humidity causing sweat to bead at Babbs' wispy hairline almost instantly. Vines as thick around as their bodies hang heavily from the monstrous branches up above. The old woman looks around, pale blue eyes taking in where they've landed.

    Trees--just trees, pretty much forever, all as big as the first. They stand on the thick roots, which cross and pile atop one another like arms, as if the trees themselves find stability in supporting one another. It's quiet, almost eerily so, with only a whisper of the forest's noise muffled in the background. Babbs eyes narrow on the floor. Something was off. She notices small pebbles scattered across the roots, but they don't rest on it--they hover about an inch above the pale roots.

    Then, there's a rustle, and a shadow appears up above. Silhouetted against the leaves is a furry figure with long, bounding ears, a bushy curling tail, and a windswept mane bundled about its neck. Brilliant teal, almond eyes glow softly in the shadows.

    "Get out a 'mon, now," Babbs whispers quietly but firmly, quickly, with a hint of urgency that tells him that playtime is over. The hovering pebbles slowly begin to raise from their resting spots on the roots, tens of them, quivering with kinetic energy in the moment before they're launched directly at Liam and Babbs with incredible psychic force.

    As they reach the vibrant pink portal, Liam holds guard. There was no feeling in passing through the portal, but now there was a moment of nothingness. Liam relaxed and opened his eyes to see a world expand in front of them. Light appeared, trees elongated from the speck and fell solidly into the ground that came from underneath. A pit in Liam's stomach fell with them as gravity soon took weight. Clusters of vines interwove between the bulbous trunks of the jungle as heavy, steamed air filled Liam's lungs.

    Liam turned to Babbs, only to see her fixated on something else-- something nearby... something moving.

    "Get out a 'mon, now," she commanded through whisper. Liam reached for the first on his belt as he turned to see a pair of gleaming eyes in the shadows behind a barrage of rocks. Liam pushed the button on his Pokeball to enlarge it, then, with a flick of his wrist, he sent it outward.

    "Hiko!" Liam called as the gargantuan tarantula materialized in front of him, "Use your Sticky Web to cover the area and catch the rocks!"

    Yellow bristles twinged as the rocks came closer; Liam was unsure if he'd be able to block all of them. But Hiko was quick; spinning and spitting out a sticky silk that attacked the various trees and vines abound, creating a meshwork of web. The humidity only helped the web as it soaked up the moist air and protruded its own sappy sweat.

    Liam was right, however, as some of the rocks made it through the web, pelting him slightly. As he guarded himself with his arms, his headscarf blinded his view of his electric spider. He could see, however, the pink portal they came through. Unsure if Hiko had also been hit by some rocks, Liam asked Babbs, "Hey, can we go back through this thing?"

    Bright yellow arachnid materializes in a well-timed flash of neon red. Liam's command gives the spider a bit of a pause--the Impish creature isn't a fan of exactly being told what to do. He gives a little quiver of dark spinnerets, and then with a solid flex of his limbs, he stoops low and raises his abdomen, swinging it in precise motions to place the silk exactly where he needed. The tight-knit nature of the trees helps him quickly cast a web that captures most of the stones. The web droops a little beneath the weight of the pebbles, but otherwise holds firm.

    The rest, fortunately, missed their mark as they smashed into the roots, leaving impressive--but also terrifying--notches in the hardened bark in their wake.

    Their victory is short-lived, however. Even as Liam notes the portal behind him and turns to the Ranger to ask, they're interrupted by projectiles ripping through the web's supports. The firm leaves smack against the trees beside them, their multi-colored glow fading from their silk-covered shapes, and more begin to follow as the enraged Meowstic charges another barrage of the Magical Leaf.

    "We can, and we should!" Babbs exclaims, grabbing Liam's wrist and tugging him toward the portal. Not wanting to be left behind for psychotic-psychic-cat-food, Hiko scuttles after them. Babbs glances back at the Galvantula, then tugs them into the portal just as the Galvantula latches a shot of silk onto his Trainer's arm. When they pass through the portal, they take the arachnid with them, and just in time. Somewhere in another universe, a deadly flurry of magical leaves thud against the bark where their portal had once been.

    The portal spits them out in the same place they'd come from, three figures lost in space. The old Ranger turns a glance behind them. Mystical pink portal wavers, then suddenly closes--but then reappears further down the ambiguous spatial corridor. They might yet have more fateful encounters in another similar world, it seems. Babbs takes a moment to enjoy the fact that she can take a slow, deep breath, then looks back to Liam and his spider, the latter of which has latched itself to the former's back, and looks around skeptically with its many eyes. She offers him a look that asks them both: where to next?

    The sounds of sliced vines and the thuds of pelted tree bark thickened the situation. Babbs had agreed and grabbed Liam to pull into the portal. Hiko, always aware and quick on his feet, stuck a web from himself to Liam as they entered back into the void.

    Now floating in seemingly nothingness, Liam looked at his choices. The pink portal had reappeared, but he wasn't sure if we should return; what if that psychic cat was still on the other end? Instead, Liam turned toward his insectoid companion.

    "Hiko Puwere, which portal would you like to go through?"

    The electric tarantula was floating upside down and away from Liam, helpless in the gravity-free space. Upon being questioned, it took attention, and flailed its limbs cartoonishly to turn about and face the portals. Squinting his many eyes, the spider assessed the situation and all the many colors. Liam wondered if Hiko, with superb eyesight, had a wider color spectrum than he did and saw more than just incandescent pinks, neon blues, or vibrant greens.

    In thought, Hiko scratched his mouth with one of his large legs, simultaneously cleaning it with his pedipalps, until it suddenly decided. He pointed to the lighter green portal, determined and sure.

    "Positive?" Liam asked. Hiko nodded his head with gusto; proud of his decision and certain it was a good choice, Hiko remained stoic if not a bit silly.

    "All right then, you ready?" Liam asked Hiko, wrapping his arm around the web that connected the two in space. He also included Babbs in the question by looking at her and giving a slight nod before winding up his arm. Hiko readied himself in the void as Liam finally swung like a pitcher at a baseball game, pulling the web forcefully and slingshotting his scandalous spider toward the light green portal.

    Hiko shot like a bullet, clenching his legs in as he flung through the air, opening them up like a massive claw toward the portal to land as he phased through. The web lengthened and tightened, bringing Liam along for the ride through space. He reached out for Babbs to grab ahold as he flew past and into the light green portal.

    Babbs drifts idly in space as she watches the exchange between Hiko Puwere and his Trainer. Despite her nerves, and the fact that she can still feel the hairs on her arms standing on edge from their previous encounter, she can't stifle a small twinge of a smile at the corner of her lips. Hiko assesses the situation with his many eyes, gives himself a lil' scratch and a lil' groom, then makes his decision.

    The light green portal seems to brighten a little bit, like a child perking up at its acknowledgement. Frankly, it gives Babbs the heebie-jeebies, but there wasn't much in this realm that didn't. Her charge queries her preparedness, and Babbs gives a nod. She straightens her crimson kimono down with bony fingers, then grabs hold as Liam slingshots them into the portal.

    Nothing, and then everything all at once.

    A pounding thunder is the first thing to burst free from the seams of the void, rhythmic and powerful, jostling their teeth in their very gums. Then they're dropping, falling from a clear blue sky, down atop a hurtling mass of bustling bodies and tossing horns that stretches for miles on a plain of endless green grass. The portal closes above them. Hiko reacts fast--he spits a web in mid-air that grabs them both, and uses spindly limbs to reel them in. The wind whistling past them, his next shot is straight below.

    Silk splats on the massive bull's shoulders, splashing down the sides of its sweat-lathered neck before Hiko draws the string taut. The bull gives a toss of its head, but shows no signs of stopping, and in moments they find all three of themselves plopped onto the oversized creature's back. It's at last four times the size of a specimen they'd find on their own world, and Babbs suddenly realizes that it's not just this one. Every bull that stampedes beside them is just as huge, and the grass that they trample and tear up as they storm across the land is as tall as Babbs. They've not only landed in a realm of giant Pokemon, but they've landed in the worst place to be in it: in the middle of a stampede, on the back of a rampaging creature whose hooves are bigger than their heads. Babbs could barely straddle the creature if she wanted to, but she doesn't try--instead, she teeters precariously on her knees. Dropping her legs would probably get them crushed in the living bumper car game that was the stampede.

    Wriggling out of the silk slung around both of their waists with one hand (and the other clinging desperately to the matted brown mane in front of her), she turns to look back. Liam's balanced behind her, and Hiko perches on the bull's haunches.

    The stick of the web could have been a fly, but the weight of two human bodies and a thirty pound spider is a lot less to sneeze at. The bull begins to toss its head and slow, falling slowly further and further to the back of the herd, and becoming more and more agitated. Hind limbs give a surging push upon the earth as their mount begins to buck angrily. The Tauros behind it veer away at the flailing hooves, and Babbs does everything she can to hold on. They'd need to figure out something to hang on until this wild ride came to a stop, and fast!

    (OOC: fuuuuuuuuck yeaaaaaa! Male and Rash [if I have a choice :x])

    Phasing through the portal was not as bizarre this time as it had been, however, appearing in the sky was more terrifying than the last realm. Wide, blue skies extended for miles over hills of green, but the sound of a thousand hooves thundering across the plains made their landing precarious beyond the initial landing without wings.

    Hiko, however, was just as fast as ever, spitting web to ensnaring Liam and Babbs and attaching them to one of the bulls. Liam landed on the back of the Tauros torso first, knocking the wind out of him. Holding on tightly, and after sucking in some fresh air, he positioned himself more upright on the bull, similar to how Babbs sat. Looking behind he saw Hiko, clinging onto the haunches of the beast with his many legs having a dandy ol' time.

    But as the Tauros slowed to the back of the herd and became more agitated, Liam realized they didn't have much time before the bull would begin to buck.

    "Hiko!" Liam cried out, snapping the bristly tarantula out from his enjoyment trance, "I need you to try to secure the bull to the ground so Babbs and I can get off!"

    Hiko gave quick nods before wriggling his abdomen between the Tauros' hind legs. He released a Spider Web, entangling the Tauros for a second. There they had a moment, but Liam quickly realized his right leg was still stuck with web and now firmly attached to the bull.

    "Oh shit-" Liam stated before the now angry bull broke free of the Spider Web and began bucking. He didn't know if Babbs had gotten off yet, but saw his vivacious Galvantula being thrown from his position.

    "HikooooOOOO!" Liam yelled as he rode the bucking bull as it stomped and tantrumed with a reckoning. The spider Pokémon, mid air, shot back another string of web and solidified Liam's left leg to the bull as well as itself. Jostling Liam as it rampaged, the Tauros now wiped Hiko Puwere about, flinging it back and forth, dizzying the poor electro-arachnid.

    "Break free and give it jolt!!" Liam said, trying hard not to slam his chest into the hardened back of the beast. Hiko snapped its end of the web and landed some fet back. His hairs shook and vibrated against each other, conjuring up static electricity as the Galvantula aimed for his attack. Using his pedipalps to discharge, Hiko shot a small pulse of electricity toward the Tauros in a Thunder Wave attack, knowing it'd give Liam a bit of a shock too-- but it snickered at the sight of his owner being tossed about on the back of a maddening bull.

    Thick silk clings to the monstrous Tauros' knobby limb, the sticky material's other end finding desperate purchase on the flattened grass, gripping across the many layers to find momentary strength. However, it's not much of a match for the full force of the gargantuan Pokemon's momentum. It makes a dent, but not a big enough one--another charging kick and it breaks free, wispy strands floating and dancing almost daintily in the stampede's wind. Moisture on the pale strings glistens beneath the clear sun.

    The old woman in red seated at the bull's shoulders is spared the full lurching throw of the Tauros' haunches. She manages to cling on, barely, knowing that getting thrown in the middle of the stampede would be the definite and brutal end of her long life. Sweat beads at wrinkled brows. Hell, no, it ain't gonna be here! She hangs on for dear life, and barely--the weight of her pack slinging up and down on her back with every beat of the gallop nearly rips her off on its own. Only sinking her fingers into the mats on the wild creature's fur keeps her barely seated, though at the price of a very bruised behind that she'd feel in the morning. Well, if she made it that far!

    She spares a haphazard glance behind her at the sound of Liam's cries, looking just in time to see the boy and his spider being tossed like ragdolls in the wake of the bull's bucks--all the while coming dangerously close to the lowered horns of the Tauros that stampede behind them. Liam orders his spider to break free.

    "Be careful!" Babbs shouts, but her words are ripped away in the wind and drowned in the thunder of the herd. They were still submerged in the tail end of the stampede, and though the populace behind them was thinning, they weren't out of the metaphorical woods yet. Hiko snaps his end of the thread, and abruptly lands square between the horns of the Tauros behind them! The creature gives a startled toss of its head, which throws the Galvantula back up into the air, sending him into a disorienting spin. He makes his best attempt to channel the Thunder Wave regardless, swirling eyes managing to aim just well enough to cast it in the general direction.

    It works out--the ripple of electricity hits the bull's hocks as it bucks, and a stinging numbness ripples up its hind legs and up onto its haunches. The paralyzation stops there, not quite being enough to paralyze the rest of the huge creature. It gives a bellow, finally falling back and dropping out of the herd's ranks. As it slows and breaks away, Babbs ditches her bumpy ride. Both she and Hiko fall to the massive cushion of flattened mega-grass at the same time. It only takes another moment for a final buck to snap Liam's thread and send him thudding down right beside his bristly companion.

    They stand in an arena, a mile wide channel of huge blades of grass flattened to a soft but firm cushion. Hiko's many legs would keep him afloat, but Liam and Babbs would have to watch their steps. Their concentrated weight on two feet instead of more could send their foot through a layer of grass or two if they weren't careful. Babbs carefully picks her way toward Liam, not wanting to be caught on the wrong side of the fight.

    The bull slows and turns, holding its weight gingerly off of its back legs in an awkward hop. As silly as it looks, the thing's pissed. Dark nares flare as its thundering breathing heaves through its nostrils. Its huge head lowers close to the ground and sways from side to side as it approaches, twenty foot tall at the top of scruffy shoulders. The grass, even in its trampled state, still sinks beneath its titan weight.

    Hiko Puwere the Galvantula watches it warily, shifting its weight to its legs one by one in preparation for what was to come. And it does; the Tauros, with a dangerous storm brewing in dark eyes, shuffles forward. It's a bit clumsy, its back legs placing a little haphazardly, which slows it to somewhat manageable. However, its sheer size lets it still devour the ground between them as it charges at all three of them, horns lowered and swinging and hooves thundering.

    THUD

    Liam hit the flattened grass hard, but the possibly feet thick cushion of plants softened the blow. Nonetheless, Liam was already starting to feel the effects of the wildest ride he had taken yet-- flying through a portal to be webbed to a rampaging giant, then bucked and thrown from its back, man dad would be proud.

    He was glad Hiko was safe and sound next to him, and even more so that Babbs had found her way safely off the Tauros as well. He looked at Hiko, "how do they find themselves in predicaments like these?" he thought, smiling and giving out a chuckle. Hiko mirrored Liam before a bellowing huff of angry air sent the fear of Arceus down their spines-- or Liam's spine and Hiko's exoskeleton.

    They turned to see a very much enraged Tauros, now it's full, ungodly, size at scale for them to tremble at, charging wildly toward them. Its back legs flopped here and there, slowing the beast a bit, but its head-- horns lowered and skull throbbing --had nothing but a fierce lust of attack emblazoned throughout. Through the terror of it all, Liam did notice its weight wore heavy on the flattened grass.

    "Hiko!" Liam called out, turning to see the saucy spider Pokémon giggling at the floppy back legs of the charging Tauros, "Hiko come on," Liam giggled back, "it's attacking and it means business." Hiko huffed, straightening out his face, readying himself for the bull. "Look how heavy it is, Hiko, it could almost fall through the grass!" Liam chimed, winking at Hiko.

    Electricity crackled around the enlightened tarantula as he shook his thorax. Then, leaping into the air, Hiko regurgitated his stomach and sprayed the grass in the direct path of the charging Tauros with his Gastric Acid.

    "Buzz his brain too, Hiko, you got this!" Liam added, moving slightly out of the way as he realized he too was in the path of the beast. But as he stepped out of the way, his weight gave through the grass and one of his feet sank ankle deep. Liam fell over, but managed to keep himself unharmed and ankle untwisted. Hiko, however, continued his assault, vibrating his entire body, shaking thick bristles off in a cloud around him as he sent a Bug Buzz right at the Tauros as it hit the acidic rough patch.

    Urgent words stir Hiko from his inappropriate tendencies, and then Liam gives the impish spider a hint on what he wants him to do--just enough to seem like a suggestion instead of a command, and also just enough for Hiko to think it was completely his own idea. Babbs gives a small nod of approval. Pokemon like this were hard to deal with for rookie Trainers, but through this Liam showed that he'd been around the block a few times with his Galvantula. She shuffles carefully out of the danger zone, backing up several yards in order to observe.

    Her hand hovers at the split in her kimono's cloth, prepared to intervene if she needed to, though she's still figuring out what to do in her head if she really has to step in. Let Duchess fly them up, perhaps? Or maybe see if Nana had the strength to command the giant grass to bind him...

    Guts go a'churnin' and a'rumblin as Hiko sends his stomach acid flying at the grass in the Tauros' path, manipulating his volatile spray to be wide enough to cover the behemoth's path. The dangerous substance steams slightly as it devours the organic tissue of the grass, racing down the layers of stems to create quite the mushy green hole. Liam tells him to Bug Buzz, but he's already thinkin' it--the worst, grinding sound ripples out from him. Babbs clenches her hands over her ears. The Tauros digs in its hooves at the pain of the sound on its sensitive ears, but doesn't do it fast enough. Front right hoof splashes into the dead center of the hole, sending the burning, dissolving green paste flying in goops onto other nearby spots, with one barely missing Liam as it projectiles and lands right in front of where his foot was sunken into the grass.

    The Tauros gives a bellow that practically shakes their bones as it trips, the front of its sunken limb hitting the rest of the thick, layered grass and sending its furry chest straight to the ground. While the Bug Buzz slowed the creature enough to take away some of its momentum, there's only so much it could do--as the bull trips, Hiko realizes its skidding body will completely flatten his Trainer! Within moments, he scuttles over, sharp mandibles snipping away the grass that binds Liam's ankle. Long limbs push him out of the way, and he tries to follow, but he's not quite quick enough. The grass around them shakes as the impact of the bull's body quakes through it, and its skid rips up layers upon layers as it goes. One of these layers heaves beneath Hiko's back limbs and is quickly ripped away by the sliding weight.

    The grass slams Hiko against the Tauros' shoulder, and hard. He bounces off of the meaty plane and falls aside of the path of the Tauros' destruction, too stunned to right himself. Poor electric spider lands upon his back, the world spinning wildly in his many eyes. About a football field away, the Tauros finally comes to a stop, and lays there for a moment to gather its own bearings before it begins to carefully try to heave itself back up on its hooves. Though they can't see it with the Tauros' haunches down and its back facing them, it holds its weight a bit more tenderly on its front left hoof; it's ankle is sprained by the trip, and is also brimming with some nasty-looking welts from where it'd sunken into the still-active acid.

    It's slowed further, but not down for the count. Its limbs wobble, and for a second it looks like they'll give out, but one can never underestimate the sheer amount of adrenaline generated by the gargantuan bull. It swings its body around, taking slow steps with its half-paralyzed hind limbs to turn. Then, it stands, horns lowered toward them. It's rash, but not stupid--you don't live long enough to get that big without learning a few things. With three of its legs not in top shape, it knows it can't pull the charging game again. Veins throb visibly on its skull; the fact that it can't just charge them infuriates it even more. A soft red aura, barely visible in the brightness of the pleasant day, wavers about its large body, using its rage to fuel itself.

    Either way, they'll have to come to it--it was time to see how the performed on the offensive. Hiko slowly regains his senses enough to shake away his confusion.

    Liam struggled with his foot in the grass when he heard the thunderous bellow from the bull as the Tauros crashed and tumbled to the ground. It's momentum, however, did not stop; the monstrous Pokémon continued its path, only now plowing a ditch through the grass with its body-- and Liam was caught in its direction!

    "Shit!" he exclaimed, now tugging forcefully at his foot. He thought the wrapping around his foot and the sleek sock would be better than wearing a clunky boot, but the way the grass had intertwined and knotted around his ankle, he might as well have been wearing a leaded shoe. But soon help came from his trusty companion. A swift scuttle sent Hiko to Liam's side, his small, but razor-like teeth gnawing through the blades of grass. Hiko's mouth, like a weedwhacker, sliced through the trapping foliage just in time for him to use his large and elongated front two legs to throw Liam back a few feet.

    Liam barrel rolled, using the toss as a catalyst to escape from the incoming Tauros who crashed as if a freight train had jumped the tracks. Liam turned to see that Hiko had his own leg caught-- and it was too late.

    "Hiko!" Liam yelled out as the scene unfolded: Tauros, digging into the ground, coming at full speed; Hiko, leg stuck in the grass, gave a slipped glance of fear at Liam; a silent moment before the impact, then-- CRASH!!

    Tauros slammed into Hiko, a wall of grass and debris acting like a cushion between Hiko and the bull, yet Hiko was sent flying. A few moments later, the crash had lost energy as the Tauros finally came to a stop a good distance away. Hiko had landed on his back, his legs curled inward, stiff and injured.

    The initial panic subsided within Liam, but a new one arose as the sight of his electric tarantula lay still on his back. Hiko twitched, a good sign- or at least a better sign than previously. Soon the gargantuan spider unfurled his legs, slowly rocked over onto his pointed and padded feet, and shook off the confusion. Liam sighed a bit of relief; Hiko had taken a big hit and Liam had feared he was more hurt than he was initially, thank Arceus.

    But as Hiko stood and shook off the impact, the Tauros also rose. Liam noticed its legs were weakened, and it decidedly did not charge back. However, its forehead gleamed, its nostrils flared, its eyes glared, and it huffed clouds of steam. It was dangerous, but only up close. It was waiting for Liam and Hiko to approach it; swinging its head wildly, brazing the grass with its iron plaid horns, growls rumbling from within its throat-- it was Working itself Up into a frenzy.

    Liam stood up from the ground, widened his stance to better grip the uneasy terrain, and wiped sweat from his forehead onto his sleeve. He had come from a desert, a place abused by the sun, a land scarred by intense scorchings, but this new realm was different. It wasn't as humid as the jungle they had evaded, but nonetheless the sun here was bright, the air was moist-- maybe from the stamping of the grass, or the hoard of Tauros themselves. Nonetheless, Liam's headscarf was now not protecting him from the sun's rays, but instead insulating heat within his head, and it was beginning to get to him.

    Unwinding the headscarf, Liam let the dirty, gray cloth to hang around his torso, letting his charcoaled locks breathe in the open. He took in a fresh gulp of air as beaded sweat evaporated from his amber skin. Hiko let out a short, but concentrated collection of clicks-- a little spider sigh or huff. Liam looked over and saw him ready for action: legs spread wide, abdomen raised high, torso wriggling, pedipalps jittering, and eyes squinted, focusing on all things incredulous and pert. The heat and humidity must've been getting to Hiko as well as little hairs had been shedding from him. The impact had knocked off quite a few more hairs as a cloud of bristles surrounded the galvanizing arachnid. Static built up, sending little sparks chasing each other around the spider like their own webwork of electricity.

    "It's time then," Liam said, turning back to the huffing Tauros, who seemed to still and lock eyes with the trainer. They stood in that brief moment, sizing each other up, trying to out wit the other. Liam was unsure if the Tauros was going to use strategy, or do what it does best: rage, thrust, and bulldoze thoroughly enough to decimate its opponent.

    "Hiko," Liam began, keeping his crystal blue eyes fixed on the beast afar, but turning to address his Galvantula, "it's time to Discharge that static onto that angry boi over there."

    Hiko clicked and snickered in mischievous consent. He took a few hops forward, careful on his minipaws to sink into the grass, but got closer to the weakened bull. Abdomen seizing, thorax gyrating, legs shaking, Hiko built up the static energy from around; sparks crackled, electricity snapped around him, little micro-lightning storms thundered around his body as it soon climaxed. Hiko held the electric energy as long as he could, but then in one fell upward motion, he Discharged the electricity from his body, creating a lightning strike toward the Taruos. Thunder boomed from the spider, along with a screechy, high multi-pitched scream venting from Hiko's lungs and mouth as he attacked. The air had thickened and energized, the scenery looked painted in black and white as the lightning illuminated their surroundings, and Liam waited with baited breath for the reaction of the frenzied auroch.
