Eden Chapter Eight
Disclaimer: I do not own Pokemon.

Touko snapped her head back to N, eyes wide, and the king stared back at her with the same expression, except more grim.
"Okay, it doesn't matter how. Just contact the other members and have them get back to base. Reshiram will take me back." N slammed his cell shut and opened the carriage door, even if they were at the top of the ride, just passing the half way point.
"Reshiram!" N called out into the night and seconds later, the large white dragon came flying by the Ferris wheel, trying its best not to flap its wings hard so the civilians of Nimbasa City didn't get hurt.
Touko was ushered onto Reshiram's back before N got on after her. The large Pokemon instantly took off in the direction of Liberty Garden Tower, accelerating faster than when it flew them to Nimbasa City. Touko held on tightly for dear life, ignoring the irritated growls sent her way. N flipped open his cellphone again and speed di

Everything was blurred in Touko's vision when she opened her eyes. She was confused for a moment before remembering that needle Anthea poked into her without warning. After blinking a couple more times, everything started to clear.
"Oh, you're awake," N let out a gust of air he had been holding when the smaller teen first started to stir.
"The sneaky little... "
"Please excuse her for her behavior. She prefers to check over her patients while they sleep."
"And why is that?"
"She tells me it's because she enjoys her work more when her patients don't have their guard up."
Touko slowly sat up, still blinking every few seconds, and looked over to see N at the edge of her bed, giving a small smile. She forced a smile herself, feeling much too languid to give something more. Silently, the other teen handed her a bottle of water, which she took gratefully and drank more than half before fully satisfied.

"Oh, these socks are so comfortable! Better than the thin ones I wore while traveling around Unova!"
Touko had been rummaging through the basket of goods Anthea and Concordia had gotten for her in Castelia City. One of the articles of clothing she was allowed to wear... was socks. Since she woke up in her room, the captive had been barefoot and the floor wasn't exactly warm any time during the day, no matter how much the sun beamed through the glass.
She cuddled the brush, elastics, tooth brush, tooth paste and mouthwash she got, along with other womanly stuff such as deodorant, lotion, bras and cute underwear. Of course, her mind was so set on the important things that she forgot to ask for decent books and magazines to read. So for the time being, she had to settle with the raunchy stuff.
After a shower, of course.

Touko stepped out from the stall an hour later, she felt more refreshed than yesterday, since she had been able to brush her teeth, then apply de
Eden - Chapter Five
Many men, of all ages and sizes, came into the office throughout the day, sitting in a chair opposite of N for business. Some had more than enough papers for him to sign while the others had to bring in their business reports. All of their companies had one thing in common. Pokemon.
Scizor Hair Cuts, Pokemon Clothing, Pokemon Babies and Eggs, Pokemon Daycare. All directors had to report to N and file either retirement or resignation. Since no one had Pokemon anymore, they had to give up their business and find another job. Which will be difficult for a long while since everything in Unova revolved around Pokemon. The only business that was allowed to stay open was the Pokemon Center, in case of any rare Pokemon emergency.
Touko wanted to scowl at the older men but kept composure and the teen pretended to watch the TV on silent when she was actually listening to the conversation between N and the business people. Touko could feel the stares burning holes everywhere on
Lucky. . .
"No way... " Touko breathed in disbelief. She thought for a second of rummaging through her belongings once more but knew that it would do no good after the third time, and opted to flipping her bag over and dumping everything out onto her sleeping bad. "Where are yoooooou," she whined.
"What's the matter?" Belle asked tiredly, stifling a yawn, while folding up her own clothes and stuffing them into her bag.
"I'm missing my favorite pair of panties."
"My lucky pair."
Belle's eyes widened at this and she became much more awake. "What?! You mean those... "
"Yeah," Touko nodded somberly, expression darkening along with her mood. "I was going to wear them before going up against Elesa today because I felt like I needed the boost, but now..." She worried her bottom lip.
"Are you sure you packed them before leaving home? Maybe you forgot them in the wash."
"No. I double checked my bag before leaving, I knew I had them stuffed into a ziplock bag."
"That's going a big fa

It took nearly two hours for Touko to tell the story to Hoshi and to answer his questions. The poor grunt stared vacantly outside at the dark waters, mouth hanging slightly. He couldn't believe what was going on behind the scenes, scheming by none other than a great Sage, N's own father!
"This is messed up," was all the older male could mutter, not really knowing what else to say.
"You got that right," Touko mumbled back, eyeing the book in Hoshi's hands with distaste.
Awkward silence filled the room. Neither person not knowing what to say pass this point. The Plasma member coughed nervously and held the book in front of them, stuttering a little before finally finding his bearings.
"So... this book... friendship.... "
"Yeah.. " Touko never felt so awkward in her life before. "The king was asking the difference between friends, girlfriends and boyfriends. It was difficult to explain."
"That, I have no doubt of. If you give him this,

. . .
After almost two hours in the shower, Touko stepped out feeling refreshed, with a towel wrapped around under her arms and another in her hair. If this was in a different situation, she would wear a winning smile. But instead she settled for a barely content expression.
But now, what else was there to do?
She looked everywhere in the bathroom for hidden doors or passage ways but had no luck. She even tried lifting the drain but it was super glued shut on the floor. Not as if she could fit through there, but she could have yelled, with high hopes that her echos will reach to someone in Castelia City. But there were many, many doubts.
"Oh, I know."
Touko walked over to the corner, after putting the tray on the floor and pushing her bed back into the corner, she pressed and held the grey button she never saw before until now. There was a beep that came from the speaker on her ceiling, followed by silence until a tired voice spoke out,
