Sheer, cold, darkness.
No sound was heard. No voice echoed. Everything felt cold as ice. Not a single wind brushed one’s skin. Not a single peep caressed one’s ear.
Darkness was all that could be seen. And while light might be the source of all that is good, darkness is eternal, for darkness is a cold truth that all must face upon death.
But for some good fortune of the people, darkness holds a longer expiration date, allowing them to obtain the light they hungrily want before their time runs out.
”Haa, this is life!” Kotone said as she twirled on the big black chair. Arms raised in the air, she leaned backwards and stretched happily. The Silph president’s room was grand; it wasn’t a lie. It was the biggest and widest room in the building that it can fit a Mamoswine. The tiles were gold and white. The two huge doors – right after being put back where they were – were made from the finest and thickest mahogany. On the left side were shelves, filled with books and trophies. It almost touched the ceiling and covered one side of the room. On the right side, however, was completely made out of transparent glass, acting as windows for the office. It gave off a magnificent view of the city. Long blinds dangled from each end of the glass, which one can use to cover the clear wall for privacy.
An elegant chandelier was seen in the middle of the ceiling; its lighting so bright, it could light up the whole top floor. And as if the room wasn’t grand enough, there were four statues of the Silph president. It was placed at each corner of the room; each standing on a pedestal. One was in a stance of The Thinker. One was happily hugging a Pikachu. One was standing still with its right hand placed on its chest. And lastly, positioning next to the right side of the desk was the president holding a sword and a shield, preferably resembling honour and dignity.
Silph Co. is a world-renowned company that has made billions within decades. Their branches are widely present in many regions and countries. Their president was a kind, nice old man whose vision exceeds people’s expectation. Now, thanks to him, Silph Co. has become one of the most important and expensive organization ever.
A receptionist sat quietly on her desk. Her eyes were focused on the papers, her perfectly manicured nails tapping on each sheet. Suddenly, sounds of footsteps echoed inside the huge lobby hall. Each tap got louder, indicating that whoever it was, it was moving towards the receptionist. Even so, the Silph worker didn’t look up for she was busy focusing on her paperwork.
Finally, those steps stopped. “Welcome to Silph Co. How may I help you?” The receptionist asked in a formal, polite tone. Her head never looked up to face her customer.
”Yes. I have a little favour to ask actually.” The person – a young woman’s voice – spoke.
The receptionist looked up, mouth ready to form a smile. “And what is that favour may I-“
The sound of a trigger echoed in her ears. The lady froze completely. She felt something cold touching her forehead; a gun. Her wide, green baffled eyes gawked at the person standing in front of her. That person flashed a white smile. Her attire was full black. Her hair was in pigtails and covered with a big black puffy hat.
“Mama, where are we going?”
Emery looked at his son. The child tugged the sleeve of her blouse. Pursing a small smile, she answered, “We’re going to Sinnoh to see grandma and grandpa. Isn’t that fun?”
The boy bit the insides of his cheeks. He gazed out front. The wonderful island of Cinnabar was slowly fading away from his gaze. He then focused his attention back at his mother. “But Mama, isn’t Papa coming with us?”
He saw her mother’s smile slowly fading away. Emery averted her gaze, her finger softly tapping her cheek. “Well darling, Papa has lots of work to do back home. Sometimes Papa has to sacrifice himself just so he can make us happy.”
His head tilted to the left, confused with his mother’s explanation. “Sacrifice…?”
”How can you be so stupid to have lost her?!”
”How can you be so stupid and cruel to have hurt her in the first place?!”
