The Pokemon Prometheus Part 4
Faith lay down on her back while a pair of Blastoise used Water Gun at her open mouth. By that time, despite help from the others, the toll of living outside in the tall hills had grown onto her with unkempt fur and covered in dirt. She was also exhausted as she remembered the images created of the Great Protector and wondered how she managed to maintained her looks in those times.
She waved a pat at the two Blastoise and they stopped using Water Gun, with their cannons folding back into their shells. “I'm good for now. Thank you.”
“Thank goodness,” one of the Blastoise said as he flopped onto the ground. “Anymore and my tank will really be empty.”
“It's for a good cause, bro,” the other Blastoise said, patting the first's back.
“I don't think 'blasting water into a giant's mouth so she doesn't die of thirst' is a good cause. Especially since, if the rest of town known of her, they'll be treating her like some sort of queen,”

The Pokemon Prometheus Part 3
Adrian opened his eyes as they felt smoke, dust, and steam. His nose smelled the same as his paws helped him get up, feeling the small rocks underneath. He opened his mouth in awe before he coughed out a storm.
He stumbled around as the dust settled and the steam faded into water particles, his eyes able to see the small Vulpix sitting down in the middle of a massive crater where the star engraving once was. She was panting as her body gave out a reddish glow with smoke coming out of her mouth. The Flareon walked over to her with a deep fear written all over his face.
“Faith? Are you alright?” Adrian asked when he got near her, feeling a massive amount of heat from her.
“N-no,” Faith answered as she stood up on all fours and faced the Flareon. “But at least I'm alive.”
Adrian gave out a sigh, yet he still felt his stomach tightened. “That's good. But, where's Jirachi? Did you blast him out to space?”
As soon as the Flareon uttered those w

The Pokemon Prometheus Part 2
For the night they had stayed in a hotel, which Faith felt alienated since she was far too used to the wooden buildings of her own home that the stone buildings felt so strange to be in. At the very least the bedding was made of soft hay, which she was happy about. Adrian slept on a hay bed separate from her, which made her feel lonely for some reason, but she figured that it had to do with being so sleepless that night as well.
The next day after they paid for the room, the Vulpix and the Flareon went to various stores to get supplies for their two to three-day hike up and through the mountains nearby. Meanwhile, Faith felt a throbbing pain in her head that wouldn’t go away no matter how much she twisted and turned her head. She hoped that Adrian wouldn’t notice her neck stretches and stumbling during their walks through and out of the city, but when they were only a few steps out, he turned around and looked at her with a critical eye.
“Is everything alright?”

The Pokemon Prometheus Part 1
The bones stood as high as four Wailords stacked on top of each other in Arkanilacum. The pierced the sky, the remains of a giant Arcanine’s ribs, with the backbones partially buried in the ground. The skull, carefully maintained by the inhabitants of the Pokémon city, was removed from the rest of the skeletal remains in a century-long project and placed onto the nearby high hills up north, looking down at the city.
Stories go from an unknown number of centuries ago, when a mysterious looking group called ‘anthros’ came into the world, they brought with them knowledge on how to increase the size of anything and everything. The Pokémon of the time took the knowledge and became the first of the giants, revered as gods when they increased themselves up to the size of mountains. That knowledge spread and more Pokémon became giants before entire landscapes became battlegrounds between two macro Pokémon that could destroy mountains and forests while crea

Ashes and Portents
The anthro jackal, dressed in a long sleeve black shirt with a green vest and khaki pants, was sniffing his fresh coffee when his cell phone started playing Yellow Polka Dot Bikini. He rather hated that song, but used it as a ringtone for when his more annoying ‘friends’ called him. He pulled out his cell while looking around the restaurant.
No one around, he thought. Good.
He looked at the incoming number and sighed, realizing who it was.
“Hello Alex.”
“Hello Jack!” an excited voice replied.
The jackal responded with a cold voice. “Alex. Don’t call me Jack. You can call me Aces or my real name, Ash. Hell, you can call me TJ. Just don’t. Call. Me. Jack.”
“Eh, you’ll get used to it,” Alex disparaged.
Ash shook his head, imagining himself choking that coyote to death.
“Anyways, I’m just calling to let you know I’ve finished it,” Alex continued.

Odd Friends
I sat in the paw shaped chair, looking at the three lovers of paws
James sat at my front as the smallest member
At the size of a paw, ever seeking more
Many paws he found and many paws he hugged
Even if he was stepped on, he would only hug it
Sickness would not stop him from spreading his joy
Aussie sat at my left as the newest member
Until recently, he doesn't get what is so good about paws
Sexy? he wondered months ago while staring at paws
Since, to him, they were just stilts to stand on
Indeed, he now likes paws, though not to stepping on others
Ever he'll blame James for helping him like paws
Marquis sat at my right as the brightest member
Always wears bright orange and yellow fur
Relaxing with his bright red and black pants
Quarter part of his body had paw prints
Upon the right cheek is one such paw print
Indeed his own paws were the size of watermelons
So huge and yet as soft as plushies

Beyond Golden Gates
On a hill in brightest days does stand,
A Manor, a House, a Home,
With its richness and glory a testament to success,
Of colors most inviting, finest marble, smoothest oak,
All passerby do gawk at the luck owner
With the richest hearth, boldest paint, cleanest windows
And of course its air of perfume,
And they smiled,
But in the darkness when all eyes are closed,
A thousand thoughts are left to wander,
To wonder, to search, to seek,
And bumble through the twisting,
The climbing, the ruined, the crumbling,
Passages of that mansion,
And there in the pure and utter void,
The real solitude of self-discovery does,
A door pop to show, to unfurl, to unmask,
And allow us to brush by that which we,
Cannot hope, dare not decipher, fear to find,
When realization reveals the hollowness,
The emptiness within the confines,
Of the depths of the castle, they wince,
They pain, they bruise, they bleed at knowing,
It is empty, lacking, worthless,
But sunup, sundown they trudge,
Displaying a burnished and

A Revision
Chapter 1: . . . And a Criminal
"That was At War With the World, an oldie by Foreigner from their self-titled debut album, Foreigner. And, it is that time of the hour again, and we'll head on over to Alicia at the 98.5 Weather Channel for the afternoon outlook."
The tinny voices from the vintage Emerson squatting in the corner of the garage ricochet off of the barren, unfinished concrete walls. The echo waves by the stacks of mildewed cardboard boxes on the back floor, tool-covered corkboard hung precariously off both sides of single-car space before bouncing off the rear wall. After sailing over the Caprice at the focal point of the room, the sound dissipates out into the commotion and noise that is Baltimore.
I can hardly hear the radio over the hectic chaotic racket of the city outside. Every time a new car goes by, I get to here the wonderfully irritating pump of heavy basses, or the screech of an irate driver reproach some neighborhood kid who just rushed into the street. It's aki

Animal I Have Become
At first I didn't remember how it happened. I lay there, not a care for the rest of the world around me. Were my friends still there? Looking at my malformed body? Were they like me? So many unanswered questions I had, no one to answer them but me. I couldn't move, I was paralyzed, blind. Was I dead? Did the enormous amount of pain I had endured caused my death, or was I unconscious?
Through the darkness I saw a large white light. This is the end, I thought. A person with near death experiences often talked about seeing a white light, and beyond that was supposed to be the afterlife, or heaven, or whatever that person believes was waiting for them. Maybe it was consciousness, and that white light was opening my eyes. It turned out that neither of my predictions was right, and in fact it was my memory of what had happened tonight.
My mom had just dropped me at my friend's house; I had my party favors and food in one hand. I knocked on the door with my free hand; my friend Charlie was th

A Real Friend
        Max stared up at the starlit sky with his green eyes. His parents would be extremely mad if he was caught outside this late, but it was too dark for anyone to see him out on the roof. Max had just moved and didn't have any friends to hang out with or goof off with. In fact, of all the places he lived, he had never had any friends, and when he managed to get friends, they either left him in the dust or he moved away. This time was different however, he would try again to get friends and keep them.
        He looked down at the dark street below as two teenage boys about his age were walking past his house. They were laughing and talking, with a few bottles of cola. In one kids arm was a whole twelve-pack of Root Beer, and the other had two bags of potato chips. As much as he wanted to go to parties and pick up chicks, he would never make it past the front doors of the party. He was always a constant

An Applauding Transformation
"Next please!" the lady at the desk said
I was third in a big line-up of people who wanted to be the schools new mascot. Our school's sports team is The Middleton Junior High Wolves, my friend Ted had always teased me about how I should join a sports team, but all the spots in the football team were taken, and I was the new girl in school.
"Next please!"
I really didn't want to be like those peppy girls in cheerleading, flipping up their skirts and talking about how, "Guy's like the girls on top best." I think that that is one of those things people do to new girls at the school.
"Next Please!"
So here I was, signing up for the position of mascot because the old one had moved out just as I moved in. Hoping I make the cut.
"Name please."
"Cassie Hardwood," I said.
"Home room class?"

Sibling Transformations
This was the day, my life changed forever.
It all started on Sunday night, when I was walking home from a late-night baseball game with my friends. It was dark, and warm. My brown hair was kept out of my face by the light breeze. I was panting and sweating from the hard play and from winning, it was very exciting because I usually wasn't very good at baseball.
I was about halfway home when a strong gust of wind came down on me. It felt like someone with a giant fan had waved it directly above me. Like when a seagull flies right above your head, you feel that small gust of air as it flaps its wings. Well, take that and multiply it by one hundred and that's what I felt. I regained my breath and looked up quickly to see two black shapes above me disappear. They looked like bats.
That's strange, I thought, they looked like bats, but bats don't knock the wind out of you when they fly above you. And the last time I checked, bats didn't have tail's. I got to my feet and started jogging home.

Merry Christmas and Thoughts of this Year

Journal Entry: Tue Dec 25, 2018, 9:00 PM
"Everything starts somewhere, although many physicists disagree."

-Terry Pratchett

Mad World

Hello all. Merry Christmas. I hope you all have a wonderful day. <3

As for how this year went in general, well, it's a mixed bag of both good and bad, though it certainly piled up on the bad stuff for this month. >.|.>

For the good part, as you can see, I'm back in the writing game! Technically, I've been writing for quite a while since the last story I posted before The Pokémon Prometheus, but it was infrequent writing for the classes I've been taking and repeating because the THIRD PART OF THAT TRILOGY OF CLASSES HASN'T BEEN OPENED FOR WHO THE HELL KNOWS HOW LONG!! It was the novel I mentioned in the last journal, though when I completed it I'll restart from the beginning so it'll be more consistent. As for why I've been writing more recently, it was because of the below point since, surprisingly, Safeway is a good nondistracting environment to write in.

Another good part is that I have another job since March. I now work at Safeway as a deli working and, while it has its ups and downs, after Amazon it's not so bad. Despite the occasional customers at times calling me an idiot since a) it's a loud environment and they didn't correct me when I repeat the order (it's why I do it, not because I'm so forgetful but because I want to make sure that I heard it right) and b) they expected me to know everything about all the deli products and relay what they wanted in an incomplete fashion (I have Autism and, whenever I'm told of something in a way I don't fully understand, my mind 'translates' it as 'blah blah blah'). Fortunately, my deli manager is very supportive of me and helps me deal with them. It helps that she doesn't take crap from anyone and she knows far more about the deli than I do. ^.|.^

Now for the bad parts and it'll be pretty lengthy.

For starters, the car I've been using since I started at Amazon has been retired from use. To explain, it was a used car that my parents brought over a decade ago and one of the problems it has is that it has a leak in the oil and it has recently gotten so bad that I was getting to the point that I was spending more on oil than gas. And before you tell me, 'well, why don't you have the oil pipe be repaired', the reason is that it'll involve removing the engine and disassembling it just to put a seal on the line. We don't have the tools to do that level of procedure and it'll cost thousands of dollars for the professional to do that level of work. So, would you rather spend thousands for repairs or spend (what was before recently) $20 for oil? Besides, because of my grandmother's death (which happened last year, BTW, so it's doesn't count as a bad thing for this year), I was allowed to use the van, which, because it was used for my grandfather in long travels (he used a wheelchair and the van itself was custom redesigned so it can have him as a passenger), it only has 60K miles on it despite being just as old as the car (both are the year 2000 models).

Kinda ironic since I have to send the van in for repairs a few weeks ago and, if you haven't checked out my Twitter post about it, it cost me $1,600 for it to repair. .-.

Another tragic thing that happened was that a couple of our pets had passed away, one of which was Winky our white cat with the mismatched eyes who's been with the family since I think 1999 or 1998. He may have been a pest at times, but he does have a golden heart when he was alive. Another was our dog Mellow who we 'inherited' when grandmother passed away not too long before that year's Megaplex. It was especially sudden for Mellow to die since, while he was panting a fair amount that day, he showed no other indication that he was dying. He just laid down and died.

This one is connected with work since, while it may not have been that rough on me (working at Amazon hardened me for hard work), a fair amount of co-workers either left, quit, resigned, or were fired since I started working there. The most surprising one and the one I was salty about happened just last week ago when a co-worker of mine, while I was taking a break, decided to quit and disappeared without telling anyone, not even the store manager nor the deli manager. He just left a note saying that he can't do this anymore when I came back to an empty deli.

Finally (and this is petty of me, I admit), the bad part about this year is that my dad and sister went to take a vacation at California to our relatives there and I'm left home alone. Of course, the reason why is because the two times they schedule for a vacation are the times where I'm required for work during those days (4th of July and Christmas Eve). It still bothers me that, while they're off having fun, I'm at home with only my thoughts. I'm hoping that the next time they do this, it'll be for Easter.

Whew. As you can see, it's been one hell of a year. I'm hoping that next year will be better. Take care, everyone!

Anyways, take it easy.

Faith lay down on her back while a pair of Blastoise used Water Gun at her open mouth. By that time, despite help from the others, the toll of living outside in the tall hills had grown onto her with unkempt fur and covered in dirt. She was also exhausted as she remembered the images created of the Great Protector and wondered how she managed to maintained her looks in those times.

She waved a pat at the two Blastoise and they stopped using Water Gun, with their cannons folding back into their shells. “I'm good for now. Thank you.”

“Thank goodness,” one of the Blastoise said as he flopped onto the ground. “Anymore and my tank will really be empty.”

“It's for a good cause, bro,” the other Blastoise said, patting the first's back.

“I don't think 'blasting water into a giant's mouth so she doesn't die of thirst' is a good cause. Especially since, if the rest of town known of her, they'll be treating her like some sort of queen,” the first said as he winced at the pats. “I'm just hoping at this point that it'll worth it.”

“Come on, bro,” the second Blastoise said as he helped the first one back up. “I'm sure resting at home and refilling your tank will restore your mood.”

“Yeah, yeah,” the first one said as the two folded into their shells and spun out.

“See you later,” Faith said out loud as she rolled onto her stomach. “And thank you very much again.”

Her baby blue eyes looked around the high hills surrounding her. They did look much taller than two weeks ago when it felt like she could only be hidden if she lay down as low as she could. The area around her was also much wider to her, with more room to move around and the stones being much tougher.

“Hello there, Faith,” a voice below her said. Faith looked down and saw Dr. Erelah with Mayor Richard. “How are you feeling today?”

“Feeling much better now that I got water,” Faith answered with a smile. “Still, I also continue to hope that they'll also help wash out my fur.”

“Gal, you know how sacred the high hills are,” Mayor Richard said as he flicked a tail. “Massive amount of water could damage them in a way that we can't repair it.”

“I know,” Faith said with a shrug. “I just can't wait until I'm back to my normal size. Then I can finally relax. I hope that this week will pass by quickly.”

“It won't be all of this week,” Dr. Erelah said with a smile. “I calculated that, at your shrink rate, it shouldn't take any more than four days from now.”

“That's a relief.” Faith gave out a slight smile that shined as bright as a star. “As cool as it is to be this big, I think I'll do my best to stay as a normal Vulpix from now on.”

“Very much so, gal.” Mayor Richard poked his own nose with the back of his paw. “This is costing the town so much Poké. Oh, if only there was a way to repay it-”

The Pyroar paused when a sound-piercing noise came to the area. Everyone there cringed and covered their ears as a Pidgeot of the Pidgeot Aerial Express pierced through David's Illusion. The Pidgeot landed right between Mayor Richard and Dr. Erelah, his face etched in pure panic.

“Sir, something terrible is happening in the town!” the Pidgeot said, his face blue.

“What the hell is it?” Mayor Richard said, yelling out in anger. “Damn it, you could've blasted all of our ears off.”

“Sir, Arkanilacum is under attack!”

“What?” Mayor Richard looked at the Pidgeot in horror as his face turned pale. “By who?”

“Just one Pokémon, a strange looking Lycanroc,” the Pidgeot answered. “Yet this Lycanroc was growing in size and smashing everything in the way. When I left to came here, the Lycanroc had just reached 20 feet.”

“A strange looking Lycanroc,” Faith said and her mind pictured Maya just two weeks ago, looming over Adrian and herself. “This Lycanroc, was she strange because she has attributes from a Zoroark? Like coloring and teal on her tail?”

“Y-y-yes,” the Pidgeot answered, blinking up at the 50 feet tall Faith. “How did you know?”

“Because I met her and she could grow in size then too.” Faith's eyes narrowed. “She's also the reason why all of us are here since that Fire Stone that exploded when I tried to evolve and caused the evolutionary flux was from her.”

The three Pokémon below the Vulpix looked at each other.

“S-she's the cause of this mess,” Mayor Richard said with an angry tone. “Why, she should be captured and squeeze all the money I can get out from her so I can pay for this money sink.”

“I doubt that it'll be that easy,” Dr. Erelah said in a controlled voice. “Unless you have a secret weapon that can fight a Pokémon that big. Maybe several secret weapons since she might be even bigger than 20 feet by the time we get back.”

The Pyroar flustered as Faith closed her eyes. She imagined the destroyed buildings, smashed because of a bored, giant Lycanroc. This Lycanroc was grinning in her mind as it soon flashed to an imaged of several Pokémon getting crushed under her paw. And, worse of all, was an image of Maya with her jaws wide as Adrian fell into it.

Faith opened her eyes as they glared in determination. “I'll stop her.”

The three Pokémon below her blinked and, before they could say anything, Faith was already climbing over one of the high hills around her. Close to her was a giant Arcanine skull, much larger than her entire body, as she with a gentle walk went through the hills. On one of the hills was a Zoroark, looking at the town with fright himself. Even from this distance, he could see a growing Lycanroc rampaging through Arkanilacum.

David spotted Faith walking out of the high hills and jumped up high and grabbed the giant Vulpix's back leg. He with shocking speed climbed up the leg and soon ran up to Faith's head.

“What? Are you trying to tell me to stop? That it's too dangerous?” Faith asked, having felt every movement David made during his climb.

“Even if I did, would you stop?” David asked in turn, as he grabbed onto the turf of fur on her head.

“No,” Faith answered as her walk changed into a sprint with her paws digging into the ground, causing huge chunks of the ground to fly off.

“Then let me help you by hiding you,” David said with a grin. “So this threat won't see you coming.”

With that declaration, the two faded in sight like a mirage in a desert.

-----

“Huh. This is the maximum size I can get to at the moment,” the massive Lycanroc said as she looked down at her fore-paw and the device onto it. “It'll have to do for now.”

The Lycanroc towered over the houses at 60 feet tall, her red claws piercing anything below them, whether if they were the roads or buildings. Her tail swayed behind her, the teal on her tail smashed through several buildings at once like a huge Golem rolling through them. Indeed there was a trail of destruction behind her from the heart of town to where she was near the edge, growing larger and destructive as she gets there. Yet, despite how huge she was, the Arcanine bones above her were even larger.

She stepped forward, stepping on a building with it crumbling under the weight like it was made of paper, as her eyes saw a number of Pokémon flee before her. Maya smirked, feeling like she was some unstoppable deity of destruction, even if it was in the name of testing her technology's limits. Her eyes then spotted a familiar Flareon to her and she grinned even wider. He could've run faster, she knew, if he only didn't stop and helped out any Pokémon close to him.

With a quick movement, she stepped near the Flareon so her claws are between him and grabbed him. She could've ended it for him, but why make it quick? Better to relished in his fear, his despair in knowing there was no hope no matter how much time she gave him than to kill him the second she got him. Maya lifted him up so that he's near her nose and showed him her fangs.

“Well, well, well,” Maya said. “I didn't think it'll be this soon that we'll meet again, Adrian.”

“Why? Because you thought I'll be back in the mountains?” Adrian asked as he struggled against the claws.

“Yes, I did think so. I didn't think you'll waste a wish to get back home in an instant, let alone awaken Jirachi,” Maya answered as she, with deliberate force, smashed down several buildings as she turned to the side, towards one of the giant Arcanine's ribs. “I was hoping that, when you and maybe that brat Faith get back here, all you'll find is ruins with not even the bones here standing.”

“You sounded like you have a major beef against Arkanilacum,” Adrian said, growling as he looked past Maya's head. “Letting a Fire Stone you created fall here, not even knowing what it can do. Following the one who used it, waiting for some side effect. Attacking Arkanilacum personally when you could've just found some valley.”

“I have no idea what you're talking about,” Maya said as her voice became cold. “Everything I've done here was done in the name of researching the anthro technology. After all, science doesn't just happen when you create something. You needed to test it out on the field, hoping that any 'theories' created became true and modifying it when it doesn't. This town is just a convenient place to test them out on.”

“I will not deny that things will not go as plan. That what you think will happen and what actually happens are different,” Adrian said, wincing at the increased pressure. “But it's no excuse to just defect fault when things go wrong, like with Faith who could've died and who knows how many else if we didn't meet Jirachi in time. And, as I just said, you could've used any other to test out your machine rather than my home. You aren't doing research work, seeing what the technology you found work. You're nothing more than a bully hiding behind your so-called 'science' to justify pointless deaths and devastation.”

Maya's smirk morphed into a frown as she gave out an ugly glare. “Please tell me why I won't just eat you here and now?”

“Because I was just buying time for them.”

Maya blinked as she looked behind her. “What are you-”

“HYPER BEAM!”

Five powerful yellow beams met the giant Lycanroc's face. One she could've shrugged off, but five Hyper Beam at once in the face caused her to stumbled and fell down with a deafening crash, dropping Adrian in the progress. The Flareon twisted in the air as he braced his knees before being caught by a pear-shaped dragon with small wings. He gave a grin as the Dragonite reunited with the other four.

“Thanks, Captain Galreon,” Adrian said as the five flew up to the top of the Arcanine's bones.

“No problem,” the Dragonite replied as he along with the others landed on the rib cage. “Thank you for telling us that this could happen.”

“You're welcome,” Adrian said as he was lowered down. “I admit that I wasn't expecting her to come this quickly, but I knew that I couldn't just keep this possibility to myself.”

“If you were so worried about this 'Maya', why didn't you tell the Mayor?” another Dragonite asked as he leaned down and observed the giant Lycanroc on the ground with loads of rubble around her.

“To be honest, I think telling Mayor Richard about it could've made it worse,” Adrian answered as he looked down himself. “Knowing him, he would've made it into one big show in order to draw lots of Pokémon around the world and, with Faith nearby, he could've portrayed it as one giant battle of the century. And, with loads of more Pokémon in the town, there could've been loads more needless deaths. No, we couldn't let him know about her.”

They crouched down, looking at Maya as she gotten up, with debris flying around.

“She's a tough one, isn't she?” Captain Galreon said.

“Yes, since that was five Hyper Beams to the face,” another Dragonite said. “Being that huge made her much tougher to powerful attacks like that. And there's nothing we can do about it until we can recharge.”

“To be honest, I don't think it'll be needed for you guys to do another Hyper Beam attack on her soon,” Adrian said as he glared at Maya, who responded by roaring at them. “Besides, that surprise attack can only work once.”

“Are you saying that we should watch the town get destroyed?” a third Dragonite asked, his tone shocked.

Adrian would've responded to it, but his green eyes saw a giant Vulpix materialized and, with a sharp bite to the Lycanroc's scruff, dragged her out of the edge of Arkanilacum. The Vulpix then, with a sharp turn of her neck, threw her to the field. Adrian gave out a grin as the others looked on in surprise.

“I thought Faith will come when the news got to her,” Adrian said. “Sometimes, in order to fight a giant, you need to bring in another giant.”

-----

Faith, with a great amount of effort, flung Maya into the air. Her baby blue eyes were icy cold as, hundreds of feet away, the Lycanroc impacted the ground and rolled back with huge chunks of the ground flying. Her knees braced as she crouched low with the town behind her, like a mother protecting her kits. The Lycanroc rolled back up to her paws and saw the giant Vulpix glaring at her.

“F-Faith?!” the Lycanroc's eyes widened. “How did you become so massive?! It-it couldn't be the Fire Stone, could it?”

“Not really,” Faith answered, feeling the fire within her swelling up. “Just a mess up when we got our wishes from Jirachi.”

“A 'mess up', huh?” Maya said as she crouched low herself, looking past Faith to her prey. “I'm curious to learn more about what happened, but I'm in a strict time-frame. Perhaps if you're willing to work with me to unlo-”

“With you? You created that Fire Stone that nearly kills me, acted like it's some minor mistake in your study even though you knew that I could've exploded, taking who knows how many Pokémon with me, and you just were in the progress of destroying my home!” Faith said, spatting out the words in all the anger she could muster. “After all that, I have to be insane or stupid to even think of working with you!”

“That's a shame,” Maya said as she gave out a confident smirk. “I guess I'll have to test you and perhaps open you up after defeating you. Perhaps after that, I may have enough time to destroy Arkanilacum as well.”

Faith, seeing red, sprinted forward to Maya. Fire flowed into her throat as smoke was emitted out of her mouth, with energy swelling in there. The fire then blasted out of her mouth as she continued her charge. “Flamethrower!”

Flames met the Lycanroc's pelt as she closed one of her eyes. Maya's teeth bared as she had energy built up into her left fore-paw. When Faith was within 30 feet, Maya swung her paw to Faith's side. “Brick Break!”

The Vulpix was knocked into the air with her flailing her limbs. When she met the ground, it shook with a force that every Pokémon felt in the town with huge lumps of the earth flying into the air. Faith rolled around as the Zoroark on her was still on the air, with him flailing his limbs in panic. Faith's claws extended and grabbed onto the ground with them creating small valleys with quick speed while David landed not too far behind her.

Maya glared at the Vulpix before noticing that, during that impact, Faith shrunk down by 5 feet. “Huh. That's curious.”

“Wha-why did I shrunk?” Faith asked, yelling out as she felt the spacious paw impression on the ground.

“Perhaps it's because, in order to recover from that attack, your body shrunk in response,” Maya answered before giving out a wide smirk that would slash down anyone who saw it. “That makes things much easier for me. I don't have to deal with a huge body to carry around when I defeat you but instead your pathetic, small size.”

Faith's eyes widened as the larger Lycanroc crouched low to the ground before leaping up to the air with her jaws wide open.

“Crunch!”

Faith's natural instinct was to jump back, but instead, she ran forward and leaped. Her body twisted upwards as she felt a fireball swelling in her throat, her eyes staring at Maya's stomach. “Flame Burst!”

A concentrated fireball exited from her mouth to Maya's stomach. The fireball exploded upon impact as the Lycanroc gave out a cry. The blast's force kept her on the air, over the Zoroark, and crashing on her back with a quake. Faith panted, feeling that she just shrunk more to 40 feet, as Maya ahead of her twisted back to her feet, shaking the ground. When their eyes met Faith realized that, at the way this fight was going, she wasn't going to win as long as Maya doesn't shrink down while she does. Her eyes diverted onto the Lycanroc's legs and an idea formed in her mind.

“This has been fun, little one, but I'll end this right now,” Maya said as she forced herself up on her hind legs. She then slammed her fore-paws onto the ground as the earth shook. “Stone Edge!!”

Faith's eyes widened as the ground broke around her and huge slabs of stones shoot into the air, surrounding her. They clamped around her with a force that left her unable to move, feeling them slicing through her fur and skin. She gave out a massive hour that pierced the air for miles.

-----

“Oh Arceus, Faith's getting herself killed there,” Captain Galeron said, his voice trembled with fear.

Adrian stared downwards, feeling like something had pierced his heart. His face was filled with pain and whitening as his claws shook.

“We-we need to get down there now!” Adrian said as he looked back at the Dragonite. “We need to save her!”

“How?” another Dragonite asked. “That huge and crazy looking Lycanroc took five Hyper Beams to the face and didn't do any lasting damage. Not to mention that she managed to resist a few of the attacks from Faith, despite being nearly as big. What can we do that can stop that giant?”

“I-I'll think of something along the way,” Adrian answered, his entire body shook as if winter had come when it was only summer a few minutes ago. “Right now, Faith is in danger and we can't just watch.”

“Adrian,” Captain Galreon said as his short arms petted the Flareon, “we can't just blindly leap into action that can lead to certain death. We need a plan, something that can counter that giant, and we need it before leaping into action. Can't you think of an idea now?”

Adrian closed his eyes, doing his best to think. Yet all of this thoughts were about seeing a dead Vulpix. “I-I can't focus!”

-----

Maya gave out a harsh laugh as she walked over to the massive slabs of stone 200 feet high, ignoring the Zoroark below her in the progress. Her smug grin radiates a monolithic sense of victory since not even a Charizard could still be awake after such an attack, let alone a Vulpix. All she needed to do, she knew, was to collect Faith's fainted body, finish up destroying Arkanilacum, and she would be on her wa-

SMASH!

Maya blinked and looked up, with her eyes wide in surprise. Standing on top of the stone slabs was a Vulpix, who had broken through the stone with her now 25 feet tall body by her observation. The Vulpix gave out a soul-piercing glare as she leaped down, her body giving out a red glow. She then landed before Maya's legs and gave out a massive yell.

“OVERHEAT!!”

Flames and smoke engulfed the two giants and the surrounding area as the ground shook and a shock wave was emitted throughout, blasting David on the ground away by several feet. The stone slabs broke apart from the force with boulders flying around behind with the occasional few flying forward. David, with speed even he thought wasn't possible for him, moved out of the way from such boulders as his face screamed out panic.

The few trees and the grass field in the giant's battlefield was caught on fire, yet, despite Arkanilacum wasn't too far away, it was left unharmed from the behemoth of an Overheat attack, with the rib bones blocking the severed parts of the attack. What did go through the rib bones wasn't enough to do any lasting damages that Maya did. Every Pokémon, from the top of the high hills to the city, stared at the smoke in anticipation.

The smoke and dust soon faded and settled with Faith, now back to 1'11”, and Maya, still 60 feet tall. Maya, with a smug grin, looked down at the now tiny Vulpix while Faith glared back.

“Nice try, tiny, but I barely felt that.”

“I'm surprised that you did since I wasn't aiming at you.”

“What? What are you talki-”

POP!

Zzzzzzzz

Maya's eyes widened in horror as she looked down at one of her forelegs. The illusion device that she wore there was now melting as it gave out sparks and explosions. She gave out a horrified howl as she darkened into a shadow. The Lycanroc shadow shrunk down in size from an imposing 60 feet to an almost pathetic 2'7”. Colors came back to Maya as she stumbled and ripped out the device, with it almost burning through her skin.

“You-you little,” Maya said as she gave out an ugly glare, anger emitting off of her body. “I'll end you here right now!”

The Lycanroc then sprinted forward towards Faith as the Vulpix, teeth barred, braced herself. She felt so drained from that battle that, even though Maya with great speed got closer, she couldn't even produce flames despite her life being depended on it, let alone move out of the way. Maya leaped onto the air towards Faith with her jaws wide open.

“Crun-”

A foot met Maya's face, knocking her to the side.

“Eh, I won't let you harm my friend, so I suggest that you leave while you still can.”

Maya rolled back up and saw a Zoroark standing in front of Faith now, his arms crossed.

Maya growled. “If I have to fight you too, I will. I will get that Vulpix!”

“Eh, maybe. If you can fight off five Dragonite too.” David looked up at the ribs protecting the town, his eyes observing five pear-shaped figures flying towards them.

Maya closed her eyes. “It seems that everything's going against what I planned on doing. Good-bye for now.”

The Lycanroc faded from sight as David blinked in astonishment. His eyes shifted towards where the device Maya ripped off from her foreleg was laying, yet saw that it too had disappeared. He then turned back towards Faith and saw that she wasn't surprised at all.

“Wh-where did she and that machine went off to?” David asked.

“Who knows,” Faith answered, feeling her knees shaking before she let herself fell onto the ground. “Especially since she knows the ability Illusion. I know, she's a Lycanroc. But she told me more than two weeks ago that she gained it after a mishap with another anthro device and a Zoroark. In fact, that device she was using was making her Illusion ability reality, even her giant size just earlier.”

“That-that does explain why she looks funny,” the Zoroark said as he kneels towards Faith. “So, her being a giant was nothing more than an Illusion brought to life?”

“Yes.” Faith yawned as she lay down her head. “I feel so tired now.”

“Faith! Are you alright?!”

The Vulpix's ears twitched as she looked up and saw a Flareon running towards her. Her eyes widened as Adrian pounced her, leaving David and the five Dragonite standing there and watching in bemusement.

“Thank goodness,” Adrian said, squeezing Faith into a hug. “When I saw you trapped in that Stone Edge attack and later in that explosion in attacking her, I-I thought that you-that you-”

“It's OK,” Faith said as she patted the Flareon's back in an attempt to break off from the hug. “It was a tight fit in there, but it also caused me to shrunk just enough for me to break out from the top. I'm alright aside from feeling tired.” A massive groan came out of Faith's stomach. “And hungry.”

Adrian gave out a loud laugh as he released Faith from the Ekans-like hug. “Alright. I'll get you something to eat when we head back into town. But there's one last thing for me to do.” Faith blinked as Adrian looked into his bag and pulled out a mint-green bow. He smiled as he puts it and ties it around Faith's neck. “There you go, Faith.”

“Thank you very much,” Faith smiled as she patted the big bow on the back of her neck and her belly growls again. “Now let's go out to eat before my stomach eats itself.”

“You bet, Faith.”

-----

The Pyroar walked down the empty road at dusk, thinking about the events that happened several hours before. It's good that the problem with Faith ended a few days ahead of schedule, yet it also resulted in a great deal of destruction of Arkanilacum even if the two were only somewhat related. He dealt with a great deal of paperwork trying to cover what's been destroyed and how many of his citizens got killed, which got boring after a while.

Mayor Richard looked from side to side, now heading towards the suburban parts of the town. No one, except those who already knew the truth, knew that Faith was the giant Vulpix that saved them all. The Pokémon of the town believed that their savior died in a suicidal attack in an attempt to stop the monstrous Lycanroc rather than returning back to their normal size as Faith did. It did help that her bow that she always wore wasn't on her since it couldn't grow with her.

Perhaps he could be able to talk some sense to Faith to admit the truth. After all, loads of Pokémon died or become homeless because of the attack. With the publicity that she's the newest Pokémon who can turn into a giant in a long time would bring in every Pokémon around the world to see her. She could rake in millions of Poké just for them to see how big she can grow and how it could help the town. Couldn't she see? And, if not, perhaps his help will convince-

“Hello, Mr. Mayor.”

Mayor Richard blinked and looked around before his eyes saw a Zoroark standing behind him. His ears twitched, having heard nothing of being followed.

“Hello, boy. What can I do for-”

“Going to see Faith?”

Paused. Then he answered, “Yes, I am.”

“Eh, thought so,” David said as he walked around the Pyroar. “And are those papers of how many died or are homeless because of the Lycanroc attack?”

“L-look. What are you here for?”

“To make sure that my friend isn't in some debt for the rest of her life,” David answered as he rubbed a claw under Mayor Richard's neck. “If it wasn't for her, the entire city would've been demolished with who knows how many lives lost.”

“You know how much money I lost because of this!”

“And I know how many more you still have,” David said and grinned when he saw the Pyroar paled. “What? I've been following you on my off times and looked around your paperwork. I saw how much Poké the city really gained from tourism and how much you've pocketed.”

Mayor Richard regained his composure as he said, “You have no proof. You're just scaring me.”

“Am I?” David went into his pouch and pulled out several pictures before showing them to the Pyroar. “Hehe. Is that a sweat drop? I must say that the camera you have was very helpful in getting proof of your embezzling.”

Mayor Richard, through a pale face, gave out a glare. “How did you know?”

“Eh, it was an educated guess. When I saw the camera for the first time, I did note how new it seems. For, you see, a new camera like that, especially one made by the anthros long gone from this world, would be worth an absurd amount of money, which I thought was odd for a tight-wad like you. I did some digging, at first by my own and later with my wife's help when she was getting worried on where I was going, and I found out just how much you kept for yourself. With a convenient excuse that you don't want to shell out money because of how broke the town's income was and, thus, had to keep spending to a minimum, you managed to produce a scheme that made you one of the richest Pokémon in the world.”

The Pyroar's claws extended. “Thank you for the explanation, but, fortunately, my enforcers will silent you since I'm never alone.”

The Pyroar twitched his tail and two Blastoise leaped down on beside both of Mayor Richard's side as he gave out a sneer to the Zoroark.

“Take him out.”

The two Blastoise nodded and they extended their cannons before aiming them at the calm Zoroark ahead of them. They stood like that for a couple of seconds before they, with a grin, leaped onto the Pyroar, pinning him down.

“W-what's the meaning of this!?” Mayor Richard said as he gave out a roar. “Don't you know how much I've been paying you two?! Why betrayed me?!”

“Because they aren't your men,” David answered and two Blastoise materialized beside David, both fainted on the ground. The two Blastoise on top of the Pyroar shifted into another Zoroark and a Dragonite as the Mayor's eyes widened in horror. “And even if you did kill me, I sent out copies of the photos, ready to be read with eager eyes by reporters. There's no way you'll be able to silence them all without looking suspicious.”

Mayor Richard gave out a low chuckled. “You don't think I've paid off the reporters already? The ones who really enforced how poor our town is?”

“I didn't,” David answered with an indifferent shrug. “Good thing I've also thought of sending the pictures to the other towns as well.” He smiled as the Pyroar become white. “And I have one just waiting for Faith. You really didn't think it through at all, did you?”

“What do you want?”

“For you to leave Faith alone and to stop stealing the town's money. If you do, I'll guarantee that you'll last for the next few weeks for your 'retirement'. Deal?”

The Pyroar gave out a low growl. “Sure. I'll put it in writing.”

“Good,” David said as he gestured the two Pokémon on top of the Pyroar to get off of him. “Don't be so sad. After all, the world will know that a giant rampage and battle did happen here. Pokémon will come to visit here more than ever, so it's not like the town will be left poor or anything. Just leave your filthy paws off of the money, though.”

The three Pokémon left Mayor Richard with high spirits as the Pyroar left the other way, head low and with tail and ears drooping.

When they got outside of the Pyroar's range of hearing, Amber said, “Good thing you thought of creating copies of those pictures.”

“I didn't,” David said with both Amber and the Dragonite blinking at him. “There was no way I could think of that can create more copies of those pictures. At least, without taking more with that camera and I'm not sure how long it would've taken before he noticed that someone used up a full reel and was looking for another one. But it doesn't matter now. He accepted the deal.”

-----

Indeed, as David said, Pokémon did come to Arkanilacum in droves, in part to donate for the loss of lives and property and in part to look over the battle where the two giants, the Vulpix and the Lycanroc, fought. They looked over the paw-steps in the battlefield the size of parks and claw-marks as wide as a river and remarked how incredible they were. But, most of all, they looked at the Stone Edge remains, where the climax of the battle happened.

The Mayor noted in his report two weeks afterward that, because of what happened, tourism revenue increased by 400% (in actually 300% because of him not stealing money anymore), allowing the town to be repaired like it never happened within a month. Though it didn't improve his mood, some Pokémon noted, and the citizens were surprised when he announced his retirement, with his final day being when it was scheduled for the end of the repair period. Many believed that the sudden stress after a long lull of nothing might have broken his spirit of leading the town.

Faith, for her part, tested to see if she could grow in size again and blushed when, after using Flash Fire to absorb a fireplace's fire, she grew an extra six inches. She decided to keep it to herself and Adrian, who she told, so she could be able to live in harmony rather than be some sort of tourist spot or protector. After what she went through the last few weeks, being big like that was stressful to her and everyone around her and she doesn't want to be put into that spot again.

Though, she admitted to herself, a part of her enjoyed it and wouldn't mind if she was big again.

-----

Faith walked down the main road, her baby blue eyes looked around the shops on both of her sides. She wore a pouch around her neck and shoulder as the mint green bow flapped in the breeze. The late summer sun shined against her red-orange pelt with her white paws walked on the yellow dirt road.

“I really hope to find a Fire Stone this time and not one that's been tampered,” Faith said with a smile.

“If you say so, Faith,” a voice behind her said as her ears twitched and she looked behind her.

“That trick won't work on me again, Adrian” Faith said as she pressed a white paw against his nose.

Adrian blushed as he took a step back. “I wasn't trying to scare you this time. I just wanted to talk to you. That's all.”

“Oh? What is it?” Faith asked as she nuzzled the Flareon's blushing cheek.

“W-well, I've been thinking,” Adrian said as he shifted his eyes. “After what had happened the last several weeks, I-I wanted to ask you something.”

“Adrian, being shy like this isn't like you,” Faith said in a teasing tone. “But please try to spit it out.”

“W-w-well, here's the thing,” Adrian said while sweating. “It's had something to do with what I said during our meeting with Jirachi. Namely, I want us to live together from now on.”

“W-what?” Faith replied, blushing as well. “What do you mean by this?”

“Faith, I-I meant to tell you this. I-” Adrian said before choking on his words. “I-I-”

“Hello!” a new voice said as a Zoroark appeared between both, causing them to jump back, with Adrian on his back. “Sorry to interrupt you two, but there's a famous Explorer in the city visiting!”

Adrian glared at David as Faith said in a high-pitch voice, “A-an Explorer?! Who?!”

David turned around and pointed up the road as Faith and Adrian follow the red claw to the new figure coming their way. The foxy Pokémon's golden-white fur shined in the light with all nine tail-tips being orange in color. The green scarf he wore bore an Explorer's badge, with yellow wings on both sides. Yet the oddest thing about this sea blue-eyed newcomer's badge was a light green A engraved on it.

Faith let out a gasp. “It's it's him!”

“Who?”

Before Faith could answer Adrian's question, the Ninetales approached them.

“Hello there. My name is Daren, but folks called me A-Ninetales,” the Ninetales said. “I was hoping to meet with the leader of this town to discuss with, from what I heard, an attack by a giant Lycanroc.”

Faith held her breath, her face as red as the top half of a Voltorb while Adrian's green eyes glared at A-Ninetales, his face just as green.

“Sure. Of course, Mayor Richard won't be mayor for long, but I don't see why you shouldn't meet with him,” David said as he glanced at the Flareon with a mischievous smile. “I'll see you two later.”

A-Ninetales bowed his head to David before he gave a glance at the Vulpix with a curious face. The Zoroark gave a poke to the Ninetales' shoulder and walked for a couple of seconds, but he doesn't seem to notice, his eyes still looking at Faith. Adrian's face, if it was even possible, got greener as his claws dug into the ground.

“Didn't you noticed?” Adrian asked, his voice as cold as a Glaceon's attack. “He wants you to follow.”

“Oh, sorry,” A-Ninetales answered as he glanced at the Flareon, not bothered by the piercing glare. “Just that I also heard that a macro Vulpix was there at the time and your friend, Faith, reminded me of her.”

“Faith had nothing to do with it,” Adrian said, his tone still cold. “And, in case you didn't notice, this Vulpix isn't large like the one from before.”

“It is true that she isn't a giant at the moment, Adrian,” A-Ninetales said before looking back at David. “Sorry to keep you waiting. Let's go.”

The Zoroark smiled as he nodded and gestured the Ninetales to follow. A-Ninetales nodded back and walked behind David, though he gave one last look at Faith. Adrian breathed back and forth, doing his best to think and relax again, as Faith looked at A-Ninetales, still awestruck.

“We just met the legendary A-Ninetales! I just feel so-so honored!” Faith said with an expression that screamed out how much her mind was up in the clouds. “Don't you feel the same way, Adrian?”

Adrian closed his eyes as he lowered his head, feeling like he was next to a cliff and was about to slip down. Something was holding him back. Something said before that was trying to reach into the forefront of his mind.

“Adrian? Are you being envious of how great A-Ninetales is?”

It drifted to the back of his mind. All he could think of was falling.

“I think that he's a devious, arrogant Ninetales who's just full of himself!”

Adrian lifted his head as he realized what he just said in horror. He opened his eyes and recoiled, meeting a glare from a pissed off Vulpix.

“Adrian! How could you?” Faith said as her paw slammed against the Flareon's face. He felled back onto the ground with a stunned look on his face. “How could you not see how awesome A-Ninetales is? As a result, I don't think I want to live with you!”

Faith stormed off, leaving behind a flustered Flareon behind. Adrian's ears then flattened back, his eyes glanced towards the ground as he felt a massive pain his chest. He had a chance to be with Faith for the rest of his life and he blew it! All because he couldn't keep his thoughts straight; because he couldn't help but noticed how much A-Ninetales looked at Faith and how much she idolized him. His mind went through ways on how to apologize to Faith, how he was jealous of A-Ninetales, who knew them by-

“Wait,” Adrian said to himself. “He referred to us by our names. But we never even told him our names. How did he know? And, come to think of it, he was certain that the giant Vulpix who defended this town was a she. How?”

Adrian looked down the road where A-Ninetales walked down with David and, with a leap back onto his paws, ran down the road. Whether if this was a way to make up with Faith or to learn more about A-Ninetales, one thing was certain, Adrian realized. This Explorer might have guessed or even knew the truth about Faith and her giant part in defending this town.
The Pokemon Prometheus Part 4
Here is the final part of the story. Don't worry about how it ends, though. I admit that I do have an idea or three on how things will continue when I write a sequel to this story. Enjoy!

I would like to thank :icontails230:Tails230 who has been very supportive of me while I was writing this story. Not to mention that the characters here, aside from A-Ninetales and Saria, are as much his characters as they are mine. ^.|.^

Merry Christmas and Thoughts of this Year

Journal Entry: Tue Dec 25, 2018, 9:00 PM
"Everything starts somewhere, although many physicists disagree."

-Terry Pratchett

Mad World

Hello all. Merry Christmas. I hope you all have a wonderful day. <3

As for how this year went in general, well, it's a mixed bag of both good and bad, though it certainly piled up on the bad stuff for this month. >.|.>

For the good part, as you can see, I'm back in the writing game! Technically, I've been writing for quite a while since the last story I posted before The Pokémon Prometheus, but it was infrequent writing for the classes I've been taking and repeating because the THIRD PART OF THAT TRILOGY OF CLASSES HASN'T BEEN OPENED FOR WHO THE HELL KNOWS HOW LONG!! It was the novel I mentioned in the last journal, though when I completed it I'll restart from the beginning so it'll be more consistent. As for why I've been writing more recently, it was because of the below point since, surprisingly, Safeway is a good nondistracting environment to write in.

Another good part is that I have another job since March. I now work at Safeway as a deli working and, while it has its ups and downs, after Amazon it's not so bad. Despite the occasional customers at times calling me an idiot since a) it's a loud environment and they didn't correct me when I repeat the order (it's why I do it, not because I'm so forgetful but because I want to make sure that I heard it right) and b) they expected me to know everything about all the deli products and relay what they wanted in an incomplete fashion (I have Autism and, whenever I'm told of something in a way I don't fully understand, my mind 'translates' it as 'blah blah blah'). Fortunately, my deli manager is very supportive of me and helps me deal with them. It helps that she doesn't take crap from anyone and she knows far more about the deli than I do. ^.|.^

Now for the bad parts and it'll be pretty lengthy.

For starters, the car I've been using since I started at Amazon has been retired from use. To explain, it was a used car that my parents brought over a decade ago and one of the problems it has is that it has a leak in the oil and it has recently gotten so bad that I was getting to the point that I was spending more on oil than gas. And before you tell me, 'well, why don't you have the oil pipe be repaired', the reason is that it'll involve removing the engine and disassembling it just to put a seal on the line. We don't have the tools to do that level of procedure and it'll cost thousands of dollars for the professional to do that level of work. So, would you rather spend thousands for repairs or spend (what was before recently) $20 for oil? Besides, because of my grandmother's death (which happened last year, BTW, so it's doesn't count as a bad thing for this year), I was allowed to use the van, which, because it was used for my grandfather in long travels (he used a wheelchair and the van itself was custom redesigned so it can have him as a passenger), it only has 60K miles on it despite being just as old as the car (both are the year 2000 models).

Kinda ironic since I have to send the van in for repairs a few weeks ago and, if you haven't checked out my Twitter post about it, it cost me $1,600 for it to repair. .-.

Another tragic thing that happened was that a couple of our pets had passed away, one of which was Winky our white cat with the mismatched eyes who's been with the family since I think 1999 or 1998. He may have been a pest at times, but he does have a golden heart when he was alive. Another was our dog Mellow who we 'inherited' when grandmother passed away not too long before that year's Megaplex. It was especially sudden for Mellow to die since, while he was panting a fair amount that day, he showed no other indication that he was dying. He just laid down and died.

This one is connected with work since, while it may not have been that rough on me (working at Amazon hardened me for hard work), a fair amount of co-workers either left, quit, resigned, or were fired since I started working there. The most surprising one and the one I was salty about happened just last week ago when a co-worker of mine, while I was taking a break, decided to quit and disappeared without telling anyone, not even the store manager nor the deli manager. He just left a note saying that he can't do this anymore when I came back to an empty deli.

Finally (and this is petty of me, I admit), the bad part about this year is that my dad and sister went to take a vacation at California to our relatives there and I'm left home alone. Of course, the reason why is because the two times they schedule for a vacation are the times where I'm required for work during those days (4th of July and Christmas Eve). It still bothers me that, while they're off having fun, I'm at home with only my thoughts. I'm hoping that the next time they do this, it'll be for Easter.

Whew. As you can see, it's been one hell of a year. I'm hoping that next year will be better. Take care, everyone!

Anyways, take it easy.
