Heading east for Eleri
After our bad experiences with Sidele that I talked about in my last story, Roger, Alex, and I decided to leave there. The best route to take, in our minds, was to the east, where the capital of Gariole, Eleri, was. There, we could either follow the river backwards to Titania, the biggest country in Boreadin, or follow it north, through Callamond. We were pretty sure we knew which way we would go.
So we got some food to last us the trip. And after realizing that having fire magic wasn't gonna cut it for the winter, we got some snow gear. We each got snow pants, boots, a scarf, and gloves. I got some goggles, for good measure. After that, we left Sidele, and headed towards Eleri.

North of Sidele, Gariole
The day we left Amery
You can skip to the next bold part if you don’t care about the journey
We decided that the best way to head was south, to Callamond’s bordering country, Gariole. That was where Sidele, the closest city to Amery, was. And of course, if that didn't work out, to the east of Sidele was the Hanola River, which flowed back up north. We also realized that since we were essentially running away, we had to pack as if we were never coming back.
Alex told us that it would be a good idea to pack while our parents weren’t home. We each got a bunch of food, some clothes, a coat and sleeping gear, and stuffed it all in some backpacks. We also got any money that we had to bring with us. Alex someho…

3 days before Amery High School gets out for winter break
Roger Seranson was a good friend of mine back then. He still is. I never thought he’d be anything except a very good artist. He certainly looks put me to shame. I was usually better in the writing department. I had always thought him and I would make a great comic team, with him doing the art and me doing the story.
Shame things don't usually end up how they’re planned.
Roger was a bit reclusive. He always made sure to follow every rule he was told to, which contrasted to the rebellious nature of most people I know. He never bothered to keep up with any of the trends started at my school, and he was clearly smart. These traits made him a favorite of …Read more >
Evan woke up early the next morning. The sun had hardly risen, and it was relatively cloudy. He wondered to himself why he was up so early. He looked around, and saw nothing to indicate he was being watched. He wondered if it was something he had heard, and waited for his ears to be awake enough to detect any noise.
When this eventually happened, he heard what he assumed woke him up. It was an irritating high-pitched buzzing sound. He searched around for where the source of the buzzing was, and it seemed to get louder the closer he got to the forest. Now curious, he decided to enter the woods in order to find out what that mysterious buzzing noise was.
As he’d thought, the noise got louder the further into the forest he went. It got really o…Read more >
A small breeze drifted through a forest. The brown leaves that had fallen from the trees littered the ground. The Sawsbucks lead their young towards their dens, as nightfall started. The Oddishes plucked themselves out of the ground,and the Cherrims closed up their petals as the sunlight faded. The night Pokemon awakened as they began their nightly activities. The forest was mostly silent.
Luckily enough, you don’t have to listen to such a boring story as that. The silence was broken by a strange sound coming from a clearing, accompanied by a flash of light. It was our heroes, who had deviously escaped from the clutches of General Forvet in the last chapter. Truly, they were never in real danger, as they could have easily defeated his troop…Read more >
