The Lady had not returned yet. There had been no messages and no sign of the ship even existing anymore. Most of the worry would have probably been brushed off if the Clergy hadn’t been acting awfully worried, which had just set off the rest of the group. The Lost had appointed the Teacher to watch over Bleakfield in his absence. As much as he disliked the Lady and distrusted her, she was still his leader and it was still his duty to go and see what was up. He had gotten on the back of the Cathedral with a handful of men, the Castle, the Eternal and the Celestial. He had managed to keep most of the Lady’s other Pokémon in the fortress, but there was no way to sway the swan and her mate. And frankly, the Lost could not blame them, especially the Celestial. They had packed up, and headed out towards the coast. The fact that no word had been heard from the Lady’s boat two days after they had arrived only confirmed that something had happened. The trip was supposed to only last for 4 days, and now it had been a week. Other sailors and boats had not reported seeing the ship either, and now they worried.
The Celestial anxiously waddled back and forth on the shore, letting out unhappy quacks as she waded through the surf. She wanted to fly off and find her owner, but all the other Pokémon there told her to stay. If she wandered off and got lost herself, then what good was she? Eternal stayed back from the spray of the water, pacing anxiously as well. The Lost sat up on the back of the Cathedral, looking out towards the ocean. He couldn’t see much out there, but he supposed it was the thought that counted. There wasn’t much he could do, in all honesty. As much as a part of him tugged in his heart to let the Lady disappear forever if something happened to her, he knew it would be trouble. Castle slowly prowled the rocks, digging his claws into them as he snooped over the tide pools.
{What if she’s just floating out there? You know how good my eyesight is! I could spot the boat! I could spot her floating in the water! We’re wasting time.} Celestial squawked, flapping her wings a few time to express to the Lost how upset she was.
The Eternal began to pace down the shore. {You could get lost and never come back as well. They’re sending out ships already to look for them. If Lost goes out on one, we will get on that one as well. Until then, we can only sit and wait.} He replied, digging his claws into the sand.
Cathedral yawned, shaking himself off. Lost staggered to keep ahold of the clumsy beast, grumbling something at him. {Worryin’ won’t do you any good. I’m sure she’s fine. Lady’s a strong human, isn’t she?} He said, swishing his tail.
Celestial sighed, pacing back again. {What if some wreckage has washed up? What if she’s not far from here?} The bird quipped, flapping her wings to take off so she could float in the air a little ways up.
Castle stopped what he was doing, turning his large armored head to look up at the swan. {They would have seen it. The whole kingdom is looking for the Lady right now. Land, sea, sky. You’re not going to find her.} He grunted, swishing his tail before delving behind another rock.
{What if-} Celestial began.
The Eternal cut her off, starting to pace down the beach towards the Castle as well. {He’s right, Celestial. They have an entire fleet out there patrolling the sea for any sign of the Lady. They have parties scouting the beaches and a few smaller parties heading out to keep a watch on other kingdom’s shores as well, just in case. We just need to wait, alright?}
Celestial sighed, circling as she followed over Eternal and Castle. Lost watched the Pokémon slowly meander down, sighing. He turned the Cathedral’s reigns, motioning the Rampardos to follow after the other Pokémon. The Lost felt bad for them, as much as he hated the woman that owned them. They didn’t understand, and even for him this whole situation was stressful and nerve-wracking.  He wasn’t really sure what to think himself. On one hand, if the Lady was gone… that solved one of his problems, but opened up a whole can of worms for hundreds of other ones. He would rather gain power through other means then… the Lady floating off and disappearing on what was supposed to be a short trip. More trouble than it was worth really. They would look weak, people would panic, oh it would be a nightmare. Lost narrowed his eye as Cathedral slowly lumbered down the beach after the rest of the party, his large feet slowly sinking into the sand. Celestial had eventually come down to land on the beach again, mournfully waddling alongside her mate. Eternal turned to nuzzle the bird, purring lowly. Castle plowed through the water after climbing down from a rock, relatively uncaring about the sea as the waves broke against the large steel beast. Lost turned his head to look towards the sea.
The sun was starting to set again, and Wingull circled the sky. There were dozens of boats drifting across the horizon; some on their usual daily routines, and others set out or were returning from the search for the Lady. The Celestial turned her head to look as well, before letting out a loud honk to the wind. Would the Lady come back? Lost was not sure. He was not fully sure if he wanted her to come back or not. For now, he would do what the others were doing: wait. Whatever happened would happened, and he would make things work regardless of what happened. He would figure out who he was. The Lady would fall. The kingdom would be his.
