A Well Earned Rest

Mac stretched out slowly, wincing at the pain of her burns. She knew that her wounds would heal best if she kept herself limber. She sighed as her mind flashed to the previous day, and all she could think about was fire. She shuddered and shook her head, attempting to shake the image from her mind. ‘It’s over now,’ she thought to herself. ‘It’s done. Stop thinking about it.’

Mac nuzzled her young partner as he slept. The Munchlax responded by reaching up lazily, his hand caressing her face. His blue-green eyes slipped open for just a moment, then slipped closed once again. His arm dropped onto the bed of leaves soon after. The Chespin made her way to the door on all fours; it was a bit too uncomfortable to stand on two feet. With one last glance toward Curry, she stepped out into the night.

Mac took a deep breath, filling her lungs with the cool night air. This felt better, she was feeling a bit claustrophobic being indoors and the night felt welcoming. She stared up to the pale moon, which was particularly full tonight and smiled. It was a nice way to be welcomed. She trotted from the door to one of the fence posts that surrounded her modest abode and slumped up against one.

Everything was feeling a bit foggy now and the world seemed to swirl around her. She was tired after the previous day, but was too uncomfortable to sleep for more than an hour or two. She was glad that Curry was sleeping soundly at least; the mission seemed like a lot for such a young Pokemon. She tried her best to hide the pain that she was in, meds only helped so much. The little guy was bright and smiling just like always, so she figured that he fell for it.

She let her eyes slip closed as the evening breeze made the berry trees and bushes around her rustle. It was a nice sound; a familiar sound. Just like home. She leaned her head back against the wooden post and with another sigh, allowing herself to relax a bit. Maybe now she could let her worried mind rest for a while. The world felt peaceful around her as it steadily went dark. Mac let herself slip away, finally letting her body rest after almost two days. She rested for a few hours, til just before daybreak, where the sun had just begun to paint the sky gold.

This is a little project that I've been thinking about for a while. They're going to be kind of big, so II don't have a guarantee on how often they'll be posted. Feel free to ask questions if you have any.
