"This really can't be the right direction," a young teenage girl muttered to herself, her bare feet pressing against the pebbles underneath her, the water running past her weary feet as she treaded on. Her chocolate-brown eyes shut for a moment as she let off a small yawn, her snow-white hair bouncing with each step, despite only being extended as far as to the back of her neck. These features were complemented by her tanned skin, which had a very nice feminine figure to it all. Her body was covered with a white T-shirt, a tan pair of shorts that extended down to her knees, held up by a black belt that had two pokeballs on the side. She looked up again, thinking to herself, 'This is obviously the right direction, Kairi….' She looked up, and saw a cavern entrance, pausing in her tracks momentarily. She admired the structure as a whole, seeing beads of water drip from within the cavern, the inside dimly lit. Kairi hesitated for a few moments, before making the fateful decision to enter the cavern. She took in a breath to calm herself, and slowly she entered.
As Kairi walked into the cavern entrance, a pair of eyes within the darker portion of the cavern appeared, glaring at her intrusion. 'What is this…human doing here?', it thought to itself in anger, seething with hatred as it cautiously observed the human's actions.
Kairi glanced around the cavern, seeing that the cavern was glistening with water. She wondered what could possibly be living within the cavern, wanting to believe that it was that Pokemon, of all things. But before she could ponder any longer, she paused once more, blinking as she suddenly felt the temperature drop in the cavern, as if something had changed the temperature in an instant. She glanced outside the cavern, even seeing some icicles form on the leaves of the plants outside. 'W-What's going on?!', she thought to herself in confusion, trying to find a reason for what was occurring.
Along with the sudden drop in temperature, a mysterious mist seemed to fall in the area, making everything past two meters obscure. Kairi raised a hand, seeing the incredibly vague outline of her hand within the fog, instinctively she felt worried about the strange occurrence. "H-Hello?", she stammered out, rubbing her arms together as she tried to keep herself warm. She stepped slowly through the cavern, her feet making small splashes in a pool of water, until she stopped, the water reaching up to her shins.
It was at that moment that a figure emerged from the deeper portion of the water, breaking the still surface with such force that the resulting wave sent Kairi falling back into the chilling waters underneath her. Kairi shivered violently, her eyes full of fear as she looked about, immediately terrified by now. "W-Who's there?! S-Show yourself!", she cried out, her voice cracking a bit in the middle out of fear.
A portion of the fog lifted, revealing the hidden figure that had made the wave. Standing tall was a creature with light-colored scales, with some that shimmered with many different colors. A pair of black eyes met as the creature soon revealed itself, its serpentine body clear to Kairi's eyes now. This pokemon was no other than a female Milotic, a very rare pokemon that only few trainers have seen before. Although the creature appeared to be gentle at first glance, its glare on the intruding trainer grew more narrow, clearly showing her displeasure towards her arrival. Through telepathy, she talked to Kairi in her mind, but it sound so commanding, so angry. "Why did you come here, human? Your kind is not welcomed here…."
Kairi nearly choked, the sight of the Milotic astonishing her senses. The scales were a sight for sore eyes, the many colors pleasing to the visual palette to her weary eyes from the day of searching for the creature. After a few moments of sheer astonishment, sense kicked into her system and Kairi glanced up at the Milotic, her entire body shivering out of concern towards the Milotic's glare. She answered truthfully to the Milotic's question, her voice wavering momentarily, "I-I got lost." And indeed, she was lost.
The Milotic pondered upon it for a moment, and decided that it was a likely excuse. She was prepared to give the human teenager a warning to leave the place, but her eyes had caught sight of something on Kairi's belt that was all too familiar to the serpent. Contraptions with red and white patterns where attached to the belt, and the Milotic's impatience and anger grew. She had seen these before, and had jumped to the conclusion that this human had intended to steal Pokemon from her territory. "Do you believe I am unable to tell? I can see them around the strap you wear!" Of course, an angered look appeared on the serpent's face. "You intend to capture Pokemon!"
Kairi paused, feeling herself start to become pressured by the Milotic. It was clear that the water-type was furious towards Kairi's intrusion, and add to the fact that it didn't seemed pleased that she was a trainer, and you have an idea of what Kairi's plight was. She glanced away from the Milotic, before making a weak chuckle, trying her best to lighten up the tense atmosphere between them. She couldn't quite deny it, since it was clear that the Milotic would tell if she was lying or not. The human girl rubbed the back of her snow-white hair, her heart beating out of sheer stress. "……I…..Guess….?", was all she managed to make out. And what she would find out seconds later, it would be the thing that ignites the serpent's anger.
The once gentle aura that covered the area vanished quickly due to the Milotic's fury. This only made Kairi all the more worried, and then a loud voice rang loudly through Kairi's mind, making Kairi grasp her head as a headache developed swiftly. "YOU DARE?!", the voice said to Kairi in a furious tone. Her rainbow-colored tail wrapped tightly around Kairi's body, almost ready to choke the human to death for her insolence.
Kairi was disoriented from the sudden voice that rang through her mind, and the next thing she knew she was being squeezed tightly by the Milotic's tail. Was this really how she was going to die? In a cavern, crushed to death by the very creature she sought out? She winced, unable to speak to the serpent to reason due to the tight vice the coils had on her. "P-Please…..D-Don't…..", was all she managed to choke out, before coughing as her organs seemed to feel like they were being squeezed and crushed at the same time.
The Milotic lightened up her grip after seeing the human beg to the best of her extent. Even if the Milotic was angry at humans for their insolence, the idea of crushing one in her coils was too gruesome to think of. Yet, it wouldn't let the human leave this place and expect other humans to not come here. Instead, the Milotic had another idea pop into her mind. It was clever to say the least, but there was one particular flaw with it. She doubted the idea at first, but it was better than trusting the human to not come back.
Kairi held her breath for a moment, noticing that the Milotic lightened up her grip. Of course, she still had a headache from the sudden booming voice from earlier, but at least she didn't have to fear being crushed….For now. A sigh of relief escaped her lips, one thing off of her mind. And yet, another seemed to come along as quickly as ever. What would happen next? Was the Milotic going to freeze her as a warning to other trainers? Or, was the Milotic going to devour her? It was hard to tell what would happen next. "W-What are you going to do to me?", she asked the serpent in a worried voice, feeling her heart beat faster out of fear.
The Milotic thought about it for a few moments longer, and finally she made up her mind on how to deal with the human. Slowly, she raised to trainer to meet with her eyes, which seemed much calmer than a minute ago. But, the voice inside Kairi's head still sounded as commanding and angry as ever. "If you would steal Pokemon from this place and take their freedom, then YOUR freedom shall be forfeit!" The coils around Kairi tightened briefly as Milotic's eyes widened ever so slightly, a small glow emanating from them.
The Serpent unleashed an attack on Kairi's mind that would surely cause a great deal of mental anguish for the young trainer. Milotic's eyes seemed to pierce into Kairi's very being, the glow around the eyes entrancing the trainer enough so she had no physical will to turn away. She was focused on sealing away everything Kairi knew, giving the human a clear mind to become the Pokemon's newest servnt.
Kairi felt nothing but terror flooding over her body, the Milotic's actions scaring her immensely. She had always been taught that Milotic were gentle creatures, willing to help humans in need of plight. This clearly wasn't like the examples she saw. Instead, her feeble human mind was quickly succumbing to the Milotic, her body still shifting inside the coils. But no matter how hard Kairi tried, she couldn't look away from the beautiful serpent.
The Milotic's attack on Kairi was sure to be painful, worse than the greatest of migraines she may have experienced. She knew that most of her kind were pacifying and gentle, she was utterly upset what she saw trainers come around to the area, only to kidnap parents and children in their strange devices. "I will make you a slave, like those you have stolen from nature, and you will never harm any of us again!", she shouted inside Kairi's mind, the excruciating moment within mere milliseconds away. Soon, Kairi would be writhing in pain as her mind started to seal away her memories of her life.
Kairi shivered for a moment, expecting the worst to come from the Milotic's words. And indeed it came. There was a sharp pain throughout her entire mind, as if a knife was slowly cutting through it, and Kairi started to writhe in excruciating pain, blood-curdling screams heard from her as she pleaded for the serpent to spare her. After a few moments, the pain started to become unbearable, and Kairi shut her eyes. Truthfully, she felt like she was dying. But, instead, piece by piece, her memories started to disappear before her eyes.
Even though Milotic was neither as gentle, nor as peaceful like others of her kind, seeing the trainer writhing in pain still plucked heartstrings on her icy heart. It was pitiful to say the least, that humans seemed to be a bit too fragile when it came to their minds. She tried to tune out the screams Kairi made in order to finish with the trainer's initiation into servitude. Minutes passed, and the Milotic made a glance at Kairi. Her face looked pale, despite having a tanned complexion, probably because of the pain she had gone through for several minutes now. The Milotic shut her eyes, and loosened her coils, feeling that Kairi had enough of this torture. Kairi slipped out of the coils and landed in the icy waters below. The fog that had come to the area finally dissipated now that the Milotic had calmed down.
Kairi muttered something unintelligible as she moved a bit more in the water. She shook her head as the tears from earlier were washed away by the frigid waters, the same waters sending chills down Kairi's spine. With her memories completely erased, save for her name, she would be nothing more than a burden to the world. With them gone, she could begin her new life, as a servant to the beautiful, wicked Milotic. A few minutes passed with Kairi shifting in the waters, until she fell limp. It would have been easy to declare that Kairi was dead from shock, but the Milotic knew that Kairi was nowhere near death….
Several hours had passed, and the noon sun had started to approach the horizon, signaling that it was somewhere around five, or even six. The Milotic had lifted Kairi onto her scales, and she kept a thoughtful eye on the human. She wondered, over the last few hours, what she could possibly do with a human as her servant. She had thought about teaching the human about the pain she believed other pokemon had felt in their round prisons. But, despite despising humans for their actions, she knew that even torture like that was inexcusable. She would never be caught doing such a thing in her lifetime.
It contemplated what the best course of action was, and thought of treating this human with a little compassion while still enslaving her. After all, it was the most humane way in her eyes. The Milotic realized only time would tell, and a more gentle voice rang in Kairi's mind. It was loud enough to cause Kairi to wake up, but it wasn't as loud and commanding as before. "Human…..Open your eyes….."
Kairi stirred from her dreamless sleep, shifting her head from side to side. Her chocolate-brown eyes slowly opened, enough to where they adjusted to the light that streamed through the entrance. She raised a hand, and rubbed her forehead. "Gah, such a migraine….", she said to herself, before sitting upright on the Milotic's scales. Once her feet touched the chilling waters was only when Kairi wondered where she was. The human blinked, looking down. A stream? She glanced at what she was sitting on, and her eyes widened with fear. With her memories sealed away, she of course had no idea where she was, or how she got there. Instead, she made a yelp and fell backwards, bumping her head against the rocks. "W-What the?!", she exclaimed, sitting upright again and looking up at the Milotic, who stared at Kairi with interest. Kairi made a small shriek of terror, and swiftly she moved back until her back touched the damp wall. "W-Who are you?!", she exclaimed, terrified out of her wits as she glanced around, gulping a bit as she didn't recognize the surroundings. "W-Where am I?!", she cried out, tears starting to form in her eyes.
The Milotic had nearly forgotten that she had sealed away the trainer's memories, including those of her knowledge and career as a trainer. To help Kairi come to grips with her fear of seeing the beautiful serpent in front of her, Milotic used an aura around the cavern to help pacify the human from fearing her. And sure enough, the aura was enough to send Kairi's terrified face fleeing, and instead came a much calmer, but still scared, look on her face. She spoke to Kairi again. "You need not be afraid, human. I am your mistress, and you are my loyal servant." It was blunt to say the least, but she needed an easy answer to Kairi's questions.
Kairi blinked, her fears dissipating and replaced with curiosity. Was this the truth? It was hard to tell. Slowly, her breathing returned to normal and her heart became a bit more at ease, and she rose to her feet, still pressed against the wall. "So, you are my mistress….?", she inquired, cocking her head to the side for a brief moment, her white strands of hair reluctant to flow because of the humidity in the cavern. "And….I am……your servant?"
