A Helping Hand part 6We walked down the halls of the HQ. The workers stared at the rangers with evil glares which turned to looks of fear when I shot MY glare at them. We turned down another hall and came to a large door. My ears twitched as I recognized one of the voices on the other other side. Heath opened the door slightly and looked in."Master Ice. Visitors here for you." He said in his thick accent."Send them in then." Ice answered.Heath opened the door completely. I ran into the room."MASTER ICE!!!!" I shouted.He looked at me then took a double take. I ran at him, ready to cry. He knelt down and I jumped into his arms."I told you that I would see you again...""That you did, Riolu. That you did." he whispered hugging me.Ice narrowed his eyes at the rangers who narrowed theirs right back. I pulled away from the hug and looked up at Master Ice. I sensed his happiness for my return, but there was something else there. The emotion of anger. The hatred of my friends.~Master Ice, do you not like m
A Helping Hand part 5The dessert was just how I remembered it. Dusty. Hot. Dry. I jumped off the boat before it even reached the pier. As I waited for the rangers to get off the boat, I cast my glance all over. Out in the distance, past Hippowdon Temple, was Black Nova HQ.

A large rock creature erupted from the ground. A Rhyperior. A yellow haired boy walked up and placed a hand on the Rhyperior's arm."Riolu." He said. "You come with me."Something flashed behind me eyes. I remembered who that was! Heath! How could I forget about Master Ice'
A Helping Hand part 4~Dreaming~I sat in the corner of my cage, losing hope. All I wanted was to go home. Why did these humans keep insisting on testing me? All of the needles and strange pills, and my newfound ability to talk and communicate with them. So I just sat there in the corner, my back to the cage door as footsteps approached. I stole a glance over my shoulder to see Ice, my apparent master unlocking the door."Let's go." He said.I sighed and slowly rose to my feet and started to walk."You know, If all goes well at the final test, they just might end up releasing you." He stated.I stopped walking and looked up at him. Hope re-bubbled inside me. I could finally go home?"I could really leave? Go back to Almia castle?" I sparked.He nodded."But in order for you to be able to leave, you need to work to your full potential today. Do everything that is asked of you, and be on your best behavior.""Yes Master Ice! I promise!"The only sounds that could be heard were the sound of Ice's calm steps an
