Wind rushed by her, as a quick moving body ran past her. Willow said, "Hello?" but it either never reached the runner's ears, or the runner just ignored the words. A young girl, about Willow's age, was the runner, and had ran past her in a hurry. Curious, Willow followed her, to a Pokemon Center. She stopped outside, and peered inside, through the window. Many people sat inside, reading newspapers, chatting, and just waiting around. The girl who had ran inside was at the counter, and had a pokeball in her hand. Willow tiptoed to the front door, and opened it slightly. She could hear the running girl begging that the nurse would help her Charmander. Willow said to herself, "She must care for her Pokemon a lot, like me. But, I wonder what would hurt it so?" Willow brushed the hair out of her eyes, and when she looked again, the running girl was running toward her. Willow's eyes widened, as she dove to the right of the door. The running girl bolted out, back from the direction she had been originally. She said to Nettle, "I wonder where she is off to? Nettle, want to try your new vine whip that we have been practicing?" Her Bulbasaur nodded.
Twin vines sprouted up toward the roof of the Pokemon Center, and the ends secured themselves. Nettle, who was still inside Willow's backpack, focused, and began to retract the vines. Willow and Nettle lifted off the ground, into the air. "Whoa!? This is awesome!" Through the air she elevated, until her feet touched the roof of the Pokemon Center. "Wow, I can see far from this roof!" She looked and saw the running girl, who was slowing down, then stopped. "Hey Nettle, you want to go see what's happening with her?" Her Bulbasaur nodded, and retracted his vines. Willow looked over the side of the roof, and ran towards the edge. She jumped off, falling down through the air. Before she touched the ground, Nettle's vines again sprouted out, and caught them, Willow's feet just inches above the ground. Nettle retracted them again, and they were on their way.
A few mintues later, she found the running girl, and approached her. "Hello? I'm Willow. And you are...?" Willow stretched out her hand to shake, and was about to say more, when a tree above them creaked. Willow looked up, to see tree that was falling down towards them. She said, "Watch out!" Willow jumped, and shoved the running girl out of the way, and barely made it herself. Her clothes now a little dirty, and her knees scuffed up, Willow stood up. She walked over to the base of the tree, to find it had been a clean cut, a perfect clean cut. "Hey, this is from a Pokemon!" Wings began beating, and Willow looked into a dense patch in the forest. Twin blades emerged, with a green scaled body attached, a ravenous jaw, with dark eyes. A Scyther! Willow had fear in her eyes, and said, "Nettle, help, quick!" Nettle popped his head out of her backpack, and jumped out. "Vine Whip!" Nettle shot his vines out, but the Scyther just cut through them. The severed ends of the vines fell to the ground. "Nettle, Tackle!" Nettle jumped into the air, but was just batted out of the way, by the Scyther's large blades, uncut by them, due to being hit by the side. The Scyther landed right in front of Willow, and put it's blade to her neck.
A dark voice appeared from nowhere, and said, "That's enough Scyther." A figure, dressed in black, walked out.
