-heads to the museum with Lillith-
Glaceon: -nuzzles her hand-
Yusei: Good. I'm glad she's adjusting well.
- Chrome is walking along when Ren pops out-
Ren: Took you long enough.
Chrome: <...How long have you been waiting for me?>
Ren: About a day.
Chrome: <...I hope you ate.>
Ren: I did. Say, how much do Metagross need to eat, anyway?
Chrome: <Not much, but we like meat.>
Ren: Ah... Don't you have like, four brains?
Chrome: <Indeed we do. It's quite helpful.>
Ren: Meh, I get by fine with just one. And besides, don't you lack certain... Parts?
<I very much prefer it being that way, thank you.>
Ren: -smirks- Being a human would be so freaky for you, wouldn't it.
Chrome: <Probably. I likely won't ever be, though.>
Ren: Yeah... Anyway, gotta go. See you.
-She disappears, and Chrome heads off-
Lillith: (follows Wolf)
-Joseph is wandering Holon City-
-Herbert doesn't even have time to utter a suitable profanity before he's swallowed.-
-searching for artifacts-
Yusei: -returns her smile, and places his hand over hers, lovingly-
-The Water Dragon... Spits everyone out on the coast-
Issun: <WAAAAAH I'M TOO YOUNG AND HANDSOME TO [DIE]- oh, we're alive.>
Ammy: That was close! -shakes off her fur-
Issun: <I'm gonna give the [busty babe] a piece of my [mind] next time we see her! She [took off] without us!>
-Suddenly, the Lucky Mallet appears from Ammy's hammerspace, and starts hopping up and down-
-It then starts hopping away-
<Ack! I hate to see [treasure] running away like that! [After it,] guys!>
Ammy: <Get back here!>
-She chases after it-
- Kaius may wake up to find himself in a dark room, tied up in a chair, with Duolis and Styx next to him. -
-Herbert limps after Ammy, still disoriented from the sudden swallowing and clutching his injured leg.-
Herbert: A Gyarados... of course it's a Gyarados! Why didn't I think of that? I was expecting a Kingdra or something, but no, that would have been too easy, I guess...

-Kaius does indeed find himself in such a situation-
Kaius: Urgh... huh? What the— ?!
Still feels suspicious...
Would now be a good time for Sagi to show up?
Not really. I have to go out shortly. :( When I get back tonight?
Sure. That actually works well because Ijust learned I'm probably going to need to go soon-ish as well.

-The group follows the mallet here and bumps into Rao and her Smeargle again-
Rao: Oh! Thank goodness you're all safe!
-The Smeargle blinks-
Issun: <Hey [babe,] what are you doing here? And how come you didn't tell us about that [monster?!]>
Rao: I'm sure I mentioned the Water Dragon several times...
Ammy: <Yeah, she did...>
Issun: <Bah, whatever. Anyway, you better not be trying to [trick us!]>
Rao: What are you talking about?! I was nearly eaten alive too, you know! But how did you get away? Amaterasu is a rater slow swimmer...
Issun: <Take that [back!] Ammy gets kinda [sensitive] about her flaws!>
Ammy: <No I don't.> >_>
Rao: Sorry... But the Fox Rods! If they're not on the ship, then where are they?! If they're lost in the ocean we'll never find them...
Issun: <Aww, don't be [sad.] I'd hate to see you and your [two friends] cry!>
Ammy: <Anyway, we've got a mallet to find. See you!>
- She heads off-
Duolis: Sorry I had to meet you in a time like this, Kaius... I'm Lady Duolis, the Ghost Lord's wife.
Styx: <The Ghost Lord's set up something nasty for you!>
Duolis: But Styx here and I rigged the hazards to help you win! Good luck!
- At this, Kaius starts to be lifted up on a platform through a trapdoor above -

-Herbert continues to follow behind Ammy, still limping.-
Herbert: The thing I'm wondering about is why the Water Dragon bothered spitting us out in the first place. Does it just not like the taste of Arcanine or something?

-Following after Ammy-

Kaius: -blinks- ...Thank you, I guess...?
-As he rises up, he struggles against the rope on the chair, trying — and failing — to untie himself-
-The group reaches a hole in the wall of the Emperor's castle, seeping green mist-
Issun: <Aha! Now we've [cornered] you, you... You... You [mallet]! No treasure's ever [escaped] the great Issun! I'm gonna sell you to some greedy [merchant,] and->
Ammy: <Isn't this where the green mist is coming from?>
Issun: <Huh? You lead us here for a [reason,] mallet?>
Ammy: <Hey, it can shrink people, right? Maybe it wants us to go in there.>
Issun: <It really wants us to go in that [creepy-looking] hole? Still, it might be a [good idea...] If this is the [source] of the mist, and [Lady Himiko] won't do anything, it's up to us!>
Ammy: <Alright... Let's get hammered!>
-With that, the Lucky Mallet glows, and the group shrinks and is sent inside the hole!-
-Kaius is raised up to a crowd of cheering Ghost types and human minions, plus a few "demon" mutants-
Tuck the Yamask: <WEEEEEEEEELCOME to "Are You Smarter than a Ghost Lord?"! With your host, our very own FEEEEEEEEARLESS LEADER!>
- Umbra walks in, to many cheers from the crowd-
Umbra: Thank you, thank you all!
Tuck: <AND! Our latest unlucky contestant, the former warlord of Dragnor, LOOOOOOOORD KAIUS!>
- There are many jeers from the crowd, the ghosts in particular booing. -
Umbra: -turns to Kaius, smirking evilly- Hello, Kaius. Like the little show I set up for you?
Where am I?
Kaius: -with a face that looks roughly like this◊- No. I don't.

Herbert: ...This is completely ridiculous. Which is why we're going through with it, I suppose.
-He is shrunk down to about an inch in height and sent into the hole, takes a moment to absorb his surroundings, then jumps back upon seeing Issun.-
Herbert: GAH! Arceus, Joltik look a lot more terrifying when they're twice your size...
-Lucanus is sitting in the crowds, watching the proceedings with consternation.-
Lucanus: Arceus, Illusio must be in a worse state than I had assumed if the Ghost Lord was able to capture Lord Kaius...
Libitina: <YEAH! Woo! Finally, some decent entertainment! Man, it's times like this when I wish I could still eat popcorn.>
Lucanus: Why are you cheering? Kaius is on our side.
Libitina: <Correction: he was on your side. Now shut up and enjoy the show.>
"Seems good enough for me." said Grant
Sakura giggles a bit "Back to the cafe we go then."
Speaking of Illusio, I must have missed something. How DID Kaius get caught?
It's actually kinda funny, despite all the crap I've gone through on a regular basis, I've yet to be shrunken, until now.
