Cryptid Hunters - Ep. 1
"Formation! Team Cryptid Hunters Unite!"
Roy: *walking around putting up flyers for his new Crypid Hunters group* Ok...that should be enough....
????:*a voice is heard* Are you sure it would work? There aren't other places?
Roy: Not that I know of. I better head home and wait... *he takes the rest of the flyers and runs off*
*Somewhere, deep in a forest along the Applacian Trail. A creature that looks like a starving cross between a human and a sharp-toothed deer is running away.*
Wendigo: "Huff, Huff, huff." Stops to catch breath.* He... couldn't... have... followed... me... that... far...
CryoFlare: *from behind* Says the gluttonis freak.
Wendigo: Huh? *turns around and gets killed by a scythe, samurai style* GAH!!! *falls*
CryoFlare: Hmph! Another Wendigo bites the dust. *smart phone rings and answers* Hello?
Hornet: Um, Cryoflare? You won't believe what I just found.
Cryoflare: Oh, hey Hornet. What's the matter?
Hornet: Well, you are at you're job now, right?
Cryoflare: Just finished. Now, what are trying to say?
Hornet: Well, someone made a poster about forming a team called "Monster Hunters". I'll send you a picture of the poster right away. *sends the picture of the poster*
CryoFlare: *sees Poster* ... *sighs annoyed* What kind of idiot would make a Poster for making a Cryptid Hunting Team?!?! Ugh. I know I'm gonna regret this, but I better make sure these rookies don't get themselves killed. *walks away from the area*
*meanwhile in a different part of the city, a female girl is looking around the city for a hidden incubus*
Luna: ... *in thought, obviously irrtated* Where the hell is that damn thing!? How could it be so hard to find one damn incubus? *takes out a device, a custom made phone with many features, activating the radar, not realizing the danger is about to enter*
Incubus: *Is disgused as a normal human man, walking around until he bumps into the huntress* Agh! Watch it!
Luna: *crashes to the incubus* Oof! Sorry.
Incubus: Sorry isn't gonna cut it, missy. You'll have to pay for it.
Luna: Hey, it isn't—-*her radar on her phone reacts to the man*—-....Wait a second. It's you!
Incubus: Hm. Seems like you know "what" I am. Try to catch me then, cutie. *immedeity runs off to a nearby ally*
Luna: Hey, wait! *she hurries to the ally the incubus ran to see nothing but a dead end empty. She looks up and sees her target got away. She has a mini tantrum* ....Are you freaking kidding me!? God damnit!! *leaves the ally, only to see the poster. She scoffs* ...Hm. I guess I can check it out later on...
Roy:*after 3 days, he walks outside the city to a flyable ship. It was dusty but he presses a switch that cleans it out* There....now to wait...
????: Do you think there will be any here?
Roy: Hopefully....I do have doubts...*walks into the meeting room*
*someone knocks on the door of the Flyable Ship. another knock is heard by someone else*
Roy:*presses another switch that opens the entry door* There...let's pray they can help...
????: Don't worry so much. Just introduce yourself.
Roy: Okay. *he walks into the meeting room, heart-pounding*
*the two visitors walk in. no one else follows*
Roy:*sees the two visitors* Whoa....I knew the posters might have caught some attention but not this kind of attention...
Luna: *notices Roy and examines him silently head to toe* ...
CryoFlare: You thought people would come because of a poster? Ugh! I knew I was gonna regret this.
Roy: I-I'm sorry...I didn't have much to work with....
Luna: ...There's no denying it. Your a grade A rookie.
CryoFlare: And a grade A Idiot.
????: *sighs* Stop being so hard on him.
CryoFlare: ? What the heck?
Luna: ? *looks around* Who was that?
Roy:*looks down at the red emerald around his neck* Amberina, not now..
????: I'm afraid I'll have to step in if these two can't listen...
*the gem around his neck starts shining until a ray of light shoots out of it and on the ground. That light forms into a female teen with long red hair, wearing a dress and a tiara on her forehead*
Luna: *gets startled* W-What the hell?
CryoFlare: *raises Eyebrow* What the heck?
Amberina: My name is Amberina, crowned princess of the Azura region on my homeworld of Xious. And as far as I see, you both are nothing when it comes to treating others.
Roy: Amberina, please!
Luna: ...E-Excuse me...? Well, um... *becomes silent and plays with her hair, meekishly*
CryoFlare: ... *shakes head* Look "Princess", your boy here put up posters to join a cryptid hunting team... a Cryptid Hunting Team! Creatures that most people don't even believe in. The minute he set up those posters, people were bound to shrug it off. Heck, I passed this couple that said the guy who put those up must be a complete fool.
Roy:....*sighs with his head down*
Amberina:*walks up to Cryo* You made your point. Zip it. *she then flicks him in the nose and walks back to Roy*
CryoFlare: *covers his nose and growls, annoyed*
Luna: *remains silent and observes Cryoflare head to toe like Roy, curious*
Amberina: *whispers* Roy, do you really think they can help?
Roy: *whispers* They have to. Otherwise, they won't be here.
Amberina: *sighs* Very well.
Roy: Ok then...*clears throat*...so,ummm...let's get to know each other,huh? My name is Roy Ember Masuko, the guardian of the Fire Red Xious Gem. Please don't ask me about it. Amberina's the long history type.
CryoFlare: Fine. I am CryoFlare. And in case you didn't know, which I'm going to go ahead and guess that you don't, I'm a Highly skilled, experienced and Well known Cryptid Hunter. *in thought* Who only came here to make sure the fools who were in this group didn't get killed.
Amberina: Just as I thought....another well-known one. It was obvious from your attitude, which I strongly recommend you adjust.
Roy: Amberina, you're not helping.
Amberina: Those were words that needed to be said.
Luna: ...I'm Luna. And I'm a hunter as well, not so well known though.
Amberina: It is a pleasure to meet you. At least one of you isn't so hard-headed.
Luna: Er, thanks...? *in thought* I don't think he's a hard head...
CryoFlare: *snorts out snow clouds* Well excuse me Princess I think I know a thing or two about being a Cryptid Hunter.
Amberina: My name is Amberina, simpleton. And do not forget that.
CryoFlare: *makes a low growl*
Roy:*freaked out, he speaks up* OK! OK! So...since we know each other, let's take a tour of the ship,huh?
Luna: ... *nods* ...I-I guess.
Roy: Good. Hopefully, we'll start off on a better first.
Luna: *nods again. In thought* That's if we can cooperate at all.
Roy: So,if we don't got anything else to say....let's go look around the ship. *walks out*
Amberina: Ok then, both of you keep up. And don't do anything you'll regret. I might be a princess but that doesn't mean that I can not defend myself.
CryoFlare: *in thought* Too late for that Princess.
Amberina: Now, come. Roy is waiting for us . *she walks outside the meeting room*
Luna: ... *whipsers to Cryoflare* At least try to be nice... I-If you want to. *goes to meeting room*
CryoFlare: Ugh. *follows*
Roy:*stops at the first stop* Ok. This is the Holonet room. All calls you make to anyone needs to be made in THIS one room. Anywhere else will mess up the ship's navigation systems and send us falling to our deaths...
CryoFlare: *in thought* Oh great. An Idiot Rookie with an other world Princess and an out of date air ship. Ugh.
Luna: ...It's out dated, you know?
CryoFlare: Thank You!
Luna: Maybe I can fix that...
Amberina:*walks up to Cryo and flicks his nose again* Leave him alone.
CryoFlare: *covers nose and growls*
Luna: ...Please don't growl.
Roy: Ok....next room...*walks off and stops in another room*
Luna: *follows Roy*
CryoFlare: Not my fault she keeps flicking my nose. *follows*
Roy: Ok, this is the Cargo Hold. About 2 decks. This one and one below.
CryoFlare: *in thought* Eh. I've seen bigger.
Luna: Um, I have a question. Where do you train here...?
Roy: We'll get to that. Next, I got to show you the rooms. *he leads them to a wide hallway with 4 doors on each wall* These are your rooms. Consider it your home away from home.
CryoFlare: I've got my own place I can get to easy.
Amberina: Nobody said YOU had to stay.
Luna: ...I don't mind staying, with a rookie or pro. *in thought* Someone better teach Cryoflare manners...
CryoFlare: *glares. In thought* Is this girl really a princess? Because I'm having my doubts.
Roy: Ok, the kitchen is at the end of this hallway but now....*leads them into a big open area*....the training room.
Luna: ...Hm. Interesting...
CryoFlare: Hmm. Pretty basic it seems, but okay.
Amberina: This room is also a virtual simulation room.
CryoFlare: Somehow I had that suspicion.
Luna: Um, before going on to that. I want to do something.
Roy: Like what?
Luna: ...I want to fight. *turns to Cryo with a slight glare* And I want to fight against you, Cryoflare.
CryoFlare: Pfft. Think you can handle me? I've handled things much bigger then you... and me.
Luna: Oh? *swiftly grabs Cryo by the wrist and overthrows him to the right side of the room* Well, I'm no girl to trifle with!
CryoFlare: *on his back on the floor, surprised* ... Gotta say, I was not prepared for that.
Luna: Isn't a hunter's job to be ready for anything? Even surprise attacks?
CryoFlare: Yes, when their on the job. Not touring an Airship that needs an upgrade!
Amberina: I am sick of your insults and your voice.
Luna: *sighs disappointed* I-I was trying to wake you up, since you seem very bored.
CryoFlare: Oh!... You know I like you alot more then that Princess.
Luna: *surprised* Y-You do? Why?
CryoFlare: You seem nice... Also, I got a good feeling from you.
Luna: ...You did, huh? *becomes bashful and looks away* T-Thanks, I-I guess... Your pretty interesting too...
CryoFlare: Thank you. Now then. *quickly gets up and transforms into his Kitsune Form on all fours* Think you're ready, Luna was it?
Roy: Holy crap, what?!
Luna: Yeah. I am. *takes out a knife* You go since I stole your first strike.
CryoFlare: Well okay then. Blizzard Blower! *fires a stream of ice and snow at Luna*
Luna: *she jumps and swiftly lunges at Cryoflare for a tackle*
Amberina: They are...skilled.
CryoFlare: *smirks and turns into a shadow, sinking into the floor*
Luna: ! *upon landing, she quickly gets into a defensive stance with another knife in hand*
CryoFlare: *creates a mouth from the shadow and blows a blizzard from under her*
Luna: Aaah!! *takes the blizzard attack and tries to endure the cold as well as keeping stance*
CryoFlare: *moves away and takes the form of a serpent using the shadow* What's the matter? Can't take the cold?
Luna: ...T-That's nothing! I had a lot worse than you could have imagine!
CryoFlare: Pfft! You wanna bet? *unleashes a stream of fire at her*
Luna: *dodges and throws the knifes at Cryoflare, secertly throwing two more as well*
CryoFlare: *the knifes go through him and remains unaffected* Can't hurt a shadow.
Luna: Tch! *in thought* What do I do now? I can't hurt him if he's like this! *backs up alittle*
Amberina: They are strong...they proven that....I do commend their strength.
CryoFlare: *exits his shadow state and goes into his Kaiju Form. punches his knuckles together* Here I come! *begins charging at Luna*
Luna: *in thought* So now he's charging at me? Bold, but not smart. *She waits for the very last moment and moves aside swiftly*
CryoFlare: Kaiju Shell Strike! *gets in shell and spins around greatly, turning to Luna*
Luna: !? *gets slammed a couple feet away, landing on her back* Agh! Why you–-! *quickly gets on her feet again*
CryoFlare: *exits spin and pops out of shell* What did you expect? I'm also a Veteren Fighter.
Amberina: This battle is now getting out of control...
Roy: Looks fine to me...
Amberina: For now. But not for long...
Luna: I pretty much knew that since I first took a glance at you. *charges at CryoFlare, and does a sucker punch at him*
CryoFlare: ... You know one interesting thing that my Kaiju form has besides strength? *grabs Luna* Very hard scales for protection. *throws Luna across the room*
Luna: *lands on the floor, harsher than before* GAH! *gets up and charges at him again*
CryoFlare: *charges forward*
Luna: *smirks and slides under him as soon impact was about to come*
CryoFlare: *performs a roll*
Luna: *surprised but also impressed* Damn, your not good. Your pretty amazing in the battlefield.
CryoFlare: Why thank you.
Luna: Your welcome~ But play time is over, sadly.
Luna: No. I just going to apologize ahead of time for what's about to come. *she goes into a trace, eyes darkening into a bloody red*
CryoFlare: *raises eyebrow* What the? *in thought* This feeling. I've got a bad feeling about this.
Roy: W-What the?!
Luna: *she swiftly lunges at Cryoflare and punches his stomach, however stronger than ever*
CryoFlare: Oof! *is forced backwards but gains his footing* What the heck just happened?
Luna?: *she charges once again and does a dropkick attack*
CryoFlare: *takes it* What the heck? *unleashes a flamethrower*
Luna?: *dodges swiftly and tackles him full force, giggling evilly*
CryoFlare: *braces tackle. Raises eyebrow* What the? *is she channeling dark energy or something?
Luna?: I think it should be obvious, Cryoflare. "I" just took over "her"~
CryoFlare: Oh great, her darkside has taken over... Which I'll be honest, I didn't see that coming... None the less, I know what to do. *blows ice cold clouds to hide himself*
Luna?: Hmph. It's useless. *stays in place* It's almost over anyway.
CryoFlare: Your absolutely right, it is almost over... *exits out of ice cloud and shows that he's in his Pony Form, Wings spread out* ... For you that is!
Luna?: *scoffs* Try me, darling. I want you to try and hit me.
CryoFlare: You asked for it. Frozen Fire Rainbow! *fires a rainbow with fiery and icy energy at the darkened Luna*
Luna?: *takes the hit, struggling to stand*
Roy:What happened to her?
Amberina:...I sense...a great darkness around her...
CryoFlare: Had enough or you want more?... Shadow of Luna...
Luna?: ...Oh bite me. *lunges at Cryo with a dagger in hand*
CryoFlare: *grabs her in place using magic* Well, if that didn't work, then maybe this will. *starts spinning her around, trying to make her dizzy*
Luna?: *surprised* Wh-What!?!
CryoFlare: *keeps spinning her around, hoping that the real Luna comes back out*
Luna?: *begins to get very dizzy, slow turning back to normal*
CryoFlare: *stops spinning her around and levitates her back on the ground* That should do it.
Luna: *back to normal, but unfourtanetly dizzy and clumsy* Ooh~ Head spinning....
CryoFlare: Yeah, sorry about that. You were going... dark... so I had to snap you out of it somehow. Spinning you around was the only thing that came to mind.
Luna: n-no. *tries to stay in place* I should be sorry for letting her take over.
Roy: Whoa...they're good.
Amberina: And I think I've seen enough...
CryoFlare: Well anyway, you might want to try and keep better control over her. *she looks like she's becoming less dizzy and sees the form he's in*
Luna: Eaiser said than... *sees his current form* ...done. You look... Really cute in that form.
CryoFlare: Um, thank you. Funny, I was expecting a diffirent reaction for some reason.
Luna: After what you did!?
CryoFlare: No. After seeing me as a Pony.
Luna: ugh, whatever. You won. *huffs*
CryoFlare: *raises an eyebrow and looks to the screen*
Amberina: *walks up* You two are no doubt powerful. I admire of your skills.
Luna: Thank you, I guess.
CryoFlare: Thank you. *in thought* The nicest thing she's said to me all day.
Roy: Well...since we've got everything out of the way, you guys can go settle into your rooms. Once your done, meet back here so we could discuss our first mission.
CryoFlare: *in thought* Even though I already have a home and won't really move.
Amberina: *turns to Cryo* As I said before, you DON'T have to stay here.
CryoFlare: ... ?! *in thought* Did she just read my mind or something?
Amberina: Hmph. *walks off calmly*
Roy: Please excuse her...I don't know why she's acting like this...
Luna: *in thought* ...He isn't that bad as a person.
Roy: Anyway, you guys go and get comfy. I'll call you through the intercom in a hour. Thanks for joining. Really. *walks off*
CryoFlare: ... okay.
Luna: ...I'm still not sure if I really wanna join.
CryoFlare: Agreed. I only came here to make sure the rookies that made those posters didn't kill themselves.
Luna: Well, I'm no rookie. I was hunting for that damned Incubus at the time.
CryoFlare: Not bad. I just finished taking down a Wendigo when Hornet called and told me about the poster.
Luna: Wendigo? How boring~!
CryoFlare: Do you even know what a Wendigo is?
Luna: It's a deer with sharp teeth, right?
CryoFlare: ... I'm pretty sure that's something else.
CryoFlare: *rolls eyes*
Luna: *rolls eyes at him and leaves the training room*
CryoFlare: *leaves training room aswell*
Luna: ...CryoFlare, right? Who's that Hornet guy you mentioned earlier? A friend?
CryoFlare: That and my robot. He's back at my home with my partners.
CryoFlare: AeroBubble, NeoLeaf, TerraBolt and NecroSteel.
Luna: Ah. It must be nice having partners.
CryoFlare: Pretty much. Though I usually do jobs solo. Lets them take care of stuff back home usually.
Luna: I see. I don't really have any partners at all. I've always work alone.
Roy:*on the intercom* Uhhh,guys. Scratch that hour wait thing. Our first target just shown itself.
Luna: *disappointed* I guess we'll have to talk later...
CryoFlare: *sighs* Looks like it.
Luna: This better be worth it. *heads to the meeting room*
CryoFlare: Agreed. *heads to the meeting room aswell*
Roy: Oh good, there you are. *brings up the target on the main computer screen* Here it is.
CryoFlare: *takes a look* ... A Chupacabra? Are you kidding me? Those things are easy to take care of. Their Rookie level Cryptids.
Luna: El Chupacabra? ...Por Que!?
CryoFlare: ... Excuse me?
Roy: -_-; This rookie thing is really starting to get to me here...
Luna: Oh, oops! *covers mouth embarrassed* Los siento. Spanish tounge seemed to slipped.
CryoFlare: Um... okay. Not that I know any spanish or anything.
Luna: But anyway... Why El Chupacabra?
CryoFlare: Some folks must have spotted one or something. They usually mistake them for coyotes with mange.
Roy: Well, this was the first thing the computer picked up.
Luna: ...Is it near a town or city, scaring people?
CryoFlare: Oh please. We're no where near their natural habitat, the border of Mexico and Texas. That's where alot of them live now... well, that and Chile.
Luna: *rolls eyes, in thought* As if I knew that already.
Roy: Hold that thought.*walks off to the cockpit*
CryoFlare: *sighs and waits*
*the ship is directed to the border of Mexico*
Roy: Ok then. NOW we're at the border. Isn't this baby awesome or what?
CryoFlare: To be honest... not really. I could be wrong, but I think I heard afew shakes here and there on the ship... That or there was something in my ear.
Roy:....-_-;...I'm...just gonna go land this thing.
Luna: ...No offense kid, but... I don't really see the magic in this old thing. *in thought* And I promise to give it one hell of a upgrade.
Roy:*walks off to go land the ship*
*The ship lands in a open area in the Mexico/Texas border*
Roy: Ok,we've landed.
CryoFlare: Okay, so Why are we going after a Chupacabra? Again, their Rookie level cryptids and only one of us here is a rookie.
Roy: Please stop calling me a Rookie already. It's getting annoying.
CryoFlare: Well quite frankly kid, you are.
Luna: Whatever. The faster we take care of it, the faster we can get back to talking.
Roy:....*breaths out heavily* R-Right. Amberina, can you see if you can track it.
Amberina: Let me see....*she closes her eyes and is covered in a light aura*...hmmm...
CryoFlare: *in thought* He still hasn't answered my question.
Luna: *takes out her custom phone once again and uses a radar, immediately getting a small reaction* ...Hmph. It must be getting food.
CryoFlare: Probably. Blood suckers they are, but they still need food. Might be going after afew rats or bugs.
Amberina: *the aura disappers* I seem to found it...it's just a few feet ahead. *puts her hand on her head* Ngh....forgive me. I need a moment to rest from that long moment of concentration.
Luna: ...Amber, I have radar that's up to date, so you don't have to worry about your powers. Besides, I already knew that, since it's getting food.
Amberina: Very well then...
CryoFlare: So again, Why are we trying to track down a Chupacabra?
Roy: First thing on this long list of Cryptids installed on the ship's Holonet.
CryoFlare: ... That's it?
Luna: ... Really?
Luna: ...Roy boy. I tried REALLY hard to be nice. But, I don't think I can anymore. A List? No reason besides a list? Not because of upcoming danger to the humans?
CryoFlare: Ugh. So your basically going to track down cryptids just to complete a list? A list that doesn't need completed because the Cryptid Hunter's society already has files on every cryptid.
Amberina: We have other reasons....reasons we're not going to expose.
Luna: But after what Roy said.... I think I wanna call it quits.
CryoFlare: *gets out bottled water* What, are you going to show the rest of the world that their real? *drinks bottled water*
Roy: It's for other reasons!
CryoFlare: By the looks of things, Rookie reasons.
Luna: I don't even know anymore. Sorry Amber, but Rookie really killed it there. *begins to walk off, looking for a nearby town*
Amberina: I am sick of your voice. *flicks Cryo's nose again*
CryoFlare: *gets annoyed and slaps her face* And I'm sick of your additude towards me Princess! *turns around*
Roy: AMBER! *turns to Cryo* W-WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH YOU?!! Do you even know how to treat a lady or a Princess?! What you did right there was just...just...WRONG!!!
*Luna is already far off from the group*
CryoFlare: Hmph. *sarcasstically* Yeah, she's a real Princess alright. Listen Rookie, this list of yours you can do on your own. It's a complete waste of time for someone like me and an obvious waste of time for someone like Luna. You want a team of Rookie's? Go to a Cryptid society website. I'm out. *goes into Draco form and flies off in the direction Luna has gone*
Roy: I DON'T NEED A JERK LIKE YOU ANYWAY!!!! *runs up to Amberina, who's on knees and close to tears* Amber, are you ok?
Amberina:*lifts her head up* I-I think so...
Roy: Come on...let me get you something to drink. *stands her up and walks her to the nearest town*
*near a town in Texas*
Luna: *already at the nearby town in a café shop, drinking some coffee. In thought* I honestly thought this would be worth it. Being in a team for once. I guess I should stick to solo jobs.
CryoFlare: *Lands near a Pizzaria right next to the Cafe Shop. in thought* I knew from the minute I saw that poster that I would regret going there.
Luna: *in thought* ...But I guess aside from Rookie and Amber, I guess Cryoflare made the short lived experience worth while. Either way, I'm not joining a team like that again.
Roy:*walks Amberina into the café shop and sits them both down at a table* Are you ok now?
Amberina:*wiping for face* I was slapped in the face by a brute like I was some kind of...I don't even know...
Roy: I know. That was just wrong. Believe me, some men was raised to tip our hats and open doors for women so I don't know what gave that jerk that audacity to slap you in the face.
Amberina: I guess he wasn't one of those men...
CryoFlare: *A couple walk up to the Pizzaria behind him. He opens the door and offers them to go in first*
Luna: *overhears Roy and Amber from the seat where she is, but decides to ignore them, pretending they don't exisit*
Roy: Great....this whole idea was nothing but a bust....at the rate things are going now, I might have to do this on my own...
Amberina: Roy, you can't. I know that you're still upset that your brother's in a coma but it's too reckless.
Roy: Amber, you just got slapped in the face but some guy who looked like his hair was frozen solid. If that happens again....*points at his gem*...."he's" gonna react to it. You know what happened last time "he" reacted.
Luna: ...? *in thought as she overheard them* Coma? ...So he's doing it for his brother?
CryoFlare: *goes to one of the outside tables with his Pizza, goes into his original form and begins eating*
Amberina: Your other self will under control as long as you control your emotions.
Luna: *in thought* Maybe I made my verdict on him too soon... No! What am I saying? That kid deserved it. Ugh, whatever! *gets up from her seat and leaves the café, now going for a small walk around town*
CryoFlare: *continues eating*
Amberina: We might as well order something...Ummm..excuse me! Waiter!
Luna: *passes by the pizzeria, not really caring anymore*
CryoFlare: *sees Luna walk by* ...?
Luna: *doesnt notice Cryoflare as she walks by*
CryoFlare: *just lets her go, seeing that she looks annoyed about something*
Luna: ...! *stops a moment and looks back at the pizzeria, now noticing Cryoflare*
CryoFlare: *continues eating his pizza*
Luna: *she decides to go to the pizzeria and sit down where Cryo is sitting.*
CryoFlare: *opens an eye sees Luna sitting down, a pizza slice in his mouth* ... Um, can I help you?
Luna: ...Didn't I see ya around. I thought you went somewhere else.
CryoFlare: I decided to get something to eat before I went home.
Luna: I see. Well, since we're here, I suppose we can continue our conversation before we we're interrupted.
CryoFlare: Okay I guess... Where did we get to before the interruption?
Luna: Hmm... Oh, right! I think were on the partner topic. Like I said, I always worked alone. Never really had anyone to depend on, like you.
CryoFlare: Well, most of the jobs I usually do it solo while they take care of stuff at home.
Luna: Right. But still, I think your lucky to have partners.
CryoFlare: Well thank you... I guess.
Luna: Your welcome...
Roy" *sighs and sits back in his chair* I really thought that these guys would help us....
Amberina: So did I...but I guess things weren't meant to be.
CryoFlare: *finishes the last slice of Pizza, leaving only the crust* Mmm. Good pizza.
Luna: *chuckles* Ya know. I kinda wish the team worked out.
CryoFlare: What do you mean?
Luna: I mean that a team of hunters is a good idea. Rookie just didn't have right mind set for it.
CryoFlare: Pfft. Tell me about it. He used posters to get his message out. Posters!
Luna: Now now... Let's forget about him. Speaking of the little dork, a little birdie told me something rather intresting~
CryoFlare: Huh? What is it?
Roy:....Part of me is glad they're gone....just thinking of how much I was called a rookie..it just...just...*his hair flashes red for a moment and his Xious Gem starts shining*
Amberina: Roy! Roy! Calm down....
Roy:*sighs deeply and sits back in his chair* I couldn't even keep my anger under control..
Amberina: Just forget about them. We'll just start over.
Luna: That dork is doing this whole thing for his brother, who's in a coma as of now.
CryoFlare: ... Okay, I'm just gonna go ahead and say it. That makes no sense at all.
Luna: I don't know the details exactly on why though, but it must be for a good reason.
CryoFlare: Seems like a reason that makes no sense to me.
Luna: I... Suppose... *becomes silent and slightly suspicious, as if something is wrong*
*the Fire Red Xious Gem then starts shining around Roy's neck, catching Roy's and Amberina's attention*
CryoFlare: *starts sensing something with his aura abilities* ...
Luna: ... *gets up and takes out her phone, in radar mode* Something is nearby, isn't it?
Amberina: The Xious Gem is reacting...
Roy: That means something's about to happen....
CryoFlare: It looks like it. Whatever it is, I'm picking it up with my aura abilities.
Amberina: Come. We have to check this out!
*the two of them run outside*
Luna: My radar is picking it up as well. Hold on... You don't think that—-*gets a very strong suspison*!! Cryo, we have to move, now!
CryoFlare: Agreed. Let's go. *runs and follows his aura sense*
Luna: *follows Cryo*
*as they both arrive outside, they stop*
Roy: Can you where the danger is?
Amberina: I can but I need a moment...*she closes her eyes and is covered in a light aura as she focuses*
CryoFlare: *follows his aura sense*
Luna: *her radar on her phone begins to react stonger* We should be close to it by now.
CryoFlare: I know, I can tell.
Amberina:*stops and points in a direction* That way!!!
Roy: Come on! *he runs ahead and she follows*
Luna: *takes out a knife* I see~ *her radar begins to go nuts* But aside that, we found our guy.
*Roy and Amberina runs faster as they are close to the location*
CryoFlare: I know. And I know what it is too.
*The find it in an alleyway over a dead stray dog completely drained of blood. It was a green canine with red eyes and a mowahawk along the back that made it look like the creature had spikes on his back*
CryoFlare: A Chupacabra.
Luna: El Chupacabra, huh? *puts away her phone! now ready to fight* So, what's the plan?
CryoFlare: We bring it back to it's natural Habitat. This isn't the right place for it.
*Roy and Amberina then stops at the area*
Amberina: There it is!
Roy: And it isn't alone...
Luna: Better knock it out cold then.
Roy: Amber, stay back...
Amberina: *grabs his arm* Roy, fighting in your human form will get you killed.
Roy: I can handle myself!!!
CryoFlare: Or put it to sleep. *turns head* Oh great, the Rookie and the not so princess.
Amberina: Shut up, you brute! I should set your organs on fire for slapping me in the face!!!
Luna: ...EVERYONE SHUT UP SHUT UP SHUT UP!!!!!
CryoFlare: *looks at Luna* O_o
*the chupacabra looks in surprise aswell*
Amberina: *sighs and calms down, turning from the crowd with her arms crossed*
Roy:*looks at Luna and gulps*
Luna: *obviously pissed* I'm not in the mood for anymore bullshit from any of ya! If you guys don't compromise, then I WILL! *lunges at the Chupacabra, doing a false swipe*
*The Chupacabra moves back in fright*
Luna: That's only a warning. If I see you there in the city again, I won't hesitate to kill you on the spot. Understood!?
*The El Chupacabra stands up on it's hind legs, unfolds it's wings and screeches at Luna. It's attempting to make itself look bigger*
Luna: *scoffs as if it was nothing and throws the knife at his left hind leg*
*The Chupacabra flies up, avoiding the knife*
Luna: *gets into a defensive stance, ready to counter*
Amberina: I have a bad feeling about this...don't you think we sure help out?
CryoFlare: Not just yet. The time isn't right.
*the Chupacabra screeches some more*
Luna: *remains in the stance, unfazed* Is that ALL your gonna do?! C'mon, attack me!
*The Chupacabra continues screeching*
CryoFlare: *hearing the Chupacabra* ... Hold on.
Amberina: What is it?
Luna: *turns to Cryo* Hm?
CryoFlare: *turns into his Kitsune Form and starts barking at the Chupacabra. The 2 exchange screechs and barks as if talking to one another*
Luna: .... *eases up her stance, abit amazed*
CryoFlare: Mm Hm. I see. This Chupacabra became frightened when some people in an airship came to his territory. The caught one of his kind and he feared that he'd get caught too, so he fled to here.
Luna: O-Oh... That makes sense now.
CryoFlare: Yeah... But why would people be after a Chupacabra? Most people don;t believe in them and no official people have tried to get them ever since the Cryptid Hunter society was formed. Very Strange.
Roy: People...in a airship...
Luna: ...Unless... Unless there are poachers that know about their existence.
CryoFlare: Even more strange. There's something going on here, and I don't like it.
Roy: Neither do I...
Amberina: What could this mean?
CryoFlare: Well, from what I can tell... It means the Cryptids of the world are in danger.
Luna: ... *sighs* Hate to say it, but we can't do it alone guys.
Roy: Same here.
CryoFlare: Agreed. If these poachers know about cryptids and they have lots of technology, there's no telling what they'll do.
Luna: Right. And I think we should be the ones to stop them. As a team.
Roy: So that means...you guys are...
CryoFlare: Don't think this means your the leader though Rookie. Your a million years from becoming that.
Roy: Ignoring that....but before you even think about joining,Cryo, you owe Amberina a apology for slapping her across the face.
Luna: You two dorks shut up before I slap you both silly.
CryoFlare: ... Gotcha.
Roy: No, seriously. Apologize to her. I'm not letting this go til you do.
Luna: *grabs Roy* Maybe you should ease up about your girlfriend. We are gonna move on and be friends. Comprende?
Roy:*he growls and his eyes turn red* I said I'm NOT letting this go!!!
Amberina: Oh no, not again! Roy, please calm down!
Luna: *lets him go* I don't know what happened and I don't care. Are you asking to just be killed? Now calm the fuck down and apologize to Cryoflare first. You and Amber we're complete assholes to him.
Amberina:I was acting like that to him because I didn't trust him. His smart mouth just makes me sick!
Luna: I am well aware he can be a smartass, but he really has a good heart. Your just being a bitch about it Amber. Now suck it up, you little slut!
Roy:.....*his eyes turn red again, he's covered in a fire aura,his Xious Gem is shining bright, and summons his Inferno Blade sword in his hand and points it at Luna*...This is my last warning to both of you. Rookie or not, I'm dead serious. Don't you dare say or do such things to Amber or else, I'll rip your body parts off, ONE BY ONE, and watch your blood spill all over the ground! GOT THAT?!
CryoFlare: Oh stop it already. *bonks Roy on the head hard*
Luna: ... *shrugs* Calm down. I'm only saying the truth.
Roy: GAHHH!!! *Ended up falling on one knee,making the aura and sword disappear, the eyes turn back to normal, and Xious Gem stop shining* Just stop making me angry....I don't normally go and say stuff like that....
CryoFlare: Eh, I've heard more threatening from villians I've faced. You angry isn't a threat to me.
Roy: Just stop making me angry! I'm trying to keep this...."power" under control.
CryoFlare: Oh just stop.
Roy: Fine. Don't believe me.
Luna: *slams fist on the wall, making a crack* ENOUGH!!
Amberina: *turns and ignores them*
Luna: *gives everyone a very deadly glare* This has gone long enough. And your leader, you both will compromise NOW, with NO bitching! Do I make myself clear all of you!?
Roy: Y-YES MA'AM!!!
Amberina: I refuse to accept her as the leader.
Luna: Amber. I can really get nasty. And I don't need no magic for that.
Amberina: I don't care. I faced against worst during the war that destroyed my home planet so you don't scare me.
Luna: Oh? Tell me if you were forced to be alone and fend for yourself for 5 years straight. No friends. No family. No support. And no magic force.
Amberina: I had to suffer that kind of life before the Xious Gems even existed!
Roy: Ladies,ladies,come on, we can all be friends here...
Amberina: Hmph....my life is none of your concern. Nobody will even care about it. *turns* Fine. Do as you wish. But my eyes are on the both of you.
Luna: *turns, pouting* ...I tried to be nice now, but this is what I freaking get.
Roy: Females are some strange creatures.
CryoFlare: ... *sighs* Rookie, just don't bother.
Roy: Would you- You know what? Never mind. Getting ripped to shreds isn't on my agenda.
CryoFlare: Much better.
Luna: ... *in thought, trying calm her new headache* Oh, what have I gotten myself into...?
CryoFlare: *in thought* I wonder what those people have planned?
*somewhere, in a dark lite office*
Boss: *2 knocks on the door* Enter.
*the two enter, being poachers*
Poacher 1: ...The mission was successful, sir. We were able to the get the chupacabra.
Boss: Excellent. Any problems?
Poacher 2: None sir. Though one did fly into the nearist town in Texas. There were also signs that others were there not long before we arrived.
Poacher 1: More than likely, rookie hunters.
Boss: Hmph. They are of no threat to us.
Poacher 1: Even so, I shall research those hunters. I have a suspisous feeling about those fools.
Boss: Very well then. Do as you wish. In the end, nothing will stop us and our goals.
*both poachers nod in agreement*
