Jihae woke with a start. He was seriously confused. He'd never been woken with water like that. But everyone else was wet except for Yuui. Figures.

Yuui woke up as the others did. He was laughing quietly. "Good morning!" he exclaimed cheerfully. He was so happy that Hikari favored him.

Miyuki was shocked. Seriously so. "I don't understand anything you say," he said. She looked so amused.

Mireya missed all of that as she was out in the valley doing her prayers. She knelt on the now fertile soil with her hands clasped together, her head bent down in prayer.

She prayed for so many things. One of them was her express gratitude to the Chosen for being able to save this little town and its people. Among a great many other things.

As she prayed, Dialga blessed her with a vision and knowledge of their next trial. But another blessed her as well. When she opened her eyes, all around her, flowers suddenly exploded out of the ground and completely covered the valley and all the land that belonged to Floaroma.

Yuui really did enjoy being favored. He was epic pleased as he got up and stretched. "Oh, I smell flowers," he said with a smile. That was much more pleasant than the stench that had greeted them when they'd first arrived.

Jihae caught the rag with a thanks for Kuro and dried his face. He sat up and wrung the water out of his long hair. There wasn't much to be done for his clothing though. He could change or just let it dry in the heat from the sun.

Jiro was not pleased with being splashed and he was out there door before any of the guys could properly get up.

"I can't disagree," Miyuki decided as she woke up properly, glad not to have been splashed. She looked at the suddenly green landscape visible outside of the tent. "Well that's an improvement." Much better. For sure.

"Oh you surly thing," Yuui said. "It smells amazing. Just admit it." He grabbed up his things and went out of the house into the now fresh air. "Oh look how lovely it is now! The ladies here will be so pleased, I think." And so would the Chosen. This was a very obvious and positive change. That would be good for the spirits.

Jihae was only a little slower to get up, pack up the things, and also leave the home. He looked around with interest. But of course he was pleased. This was his land. These were his people. Their lives would be so much easier now and that made him happy.

Jiro began to furiously clean his fur. "It's okay," he muttered as he nipped and licked at the white fur. He was not for sudden baths. He really wasn't. But he wasn't angry with Hikari either.

"Awww, you are so full of it," Miyuki said. She wasn't going to go for his cute words all the time. But she looked around and then looked for her sister.

Megumi was returning then as her prayers were over. In her hands she held a tiny shaymin. She looked exceptionally pleased.

"Oh maybe," Yuui said. Perhaps he could but he didn't fight for it.

"It's not a rat," Megumi protested and went over to Kurogane to show him the little creature that had blessed the land. "I found her in the flowers," she said, holding it up to him.

"Oh a little God of gratitude. How cute is she?" Yuui said as he looked at the cute little thing. "Drake is quite right with the name. Aren't you clever?" He said approvingly to Drake.

Jiro sniffed the fish. And then he bit it and ran off with it. He purred his approval of the little fish. He wasn't mad at Hikari at all now.

Megumi smiled at Kurogane. She was pleased that he approved that she'd gotten the little thing to like her. She pet its soft fur, careful of the flowers on its back. "I know where we are to go next," she said.

"Hmm...I think you're being overly modest," Yuui said to Drake. He was oh so amused. But then he turned his attention to Megumi.

"The second trial is in Sinnoh. An evil force works to capture the Lake Guardians. The Chosen are to prevent that," Megumi said.

Jihae looked thoughtful. "It will take some time to get to Sinnoh," he said. Journeying to different kingdoms was not going to be easy. "Perhaps updating their equipment would be best before continuing," he said and looked at Kuro. They'd agreed the Chosen needed some training in the weapons that were used of this time. Their own were too...loud.

Megumi looked apologetic. "I may receive more details later but for now that is all that I have been given." At least they knew where to go. Though fast travel was going to be an issue.

"The closest place to get properly good weapons would be the capital but..." Jihae looked hesitant. "If time I wasn't so pressing I would suggest elsewhere."

Miyuki bristled just a little at the mention of the capital. She had no intention of going there again. None. She had no desire to to even chance seeing her father.

Miyuki's lips thinned but she couldn't say the words. She didn't want to say them. She didn't want to tell. Thankfully her siblings were actually the talkative sort but even Megumi and Jihae hesitated.

"Our father is gone a bit mad," Megumi said quietly.

"More than a bit," Jihae scoffed.

"He found out that she in love with a young woman of the court and..." But Megumi struggled there.

So it was Jihae that finished telling them of what had happened to her. How his sister's love had been burned alive, twisted into a ghost fiend that was then made to torture his sister until she too would have passed away if not for the necklace she wore that anchored her to life.

For once, Yuui did not speak. He didn't even really smile. But who knew what he was thinking other than feeling sorry for the young princess.

"Drake..." Megumi said, frowning for the very first time since she'd met them. "Our father is not someone we want hindering your trials." She wanted to say more but wasn't so sure what to say.

"If we're lucky, we won't run into our father, or draw his attention before we are able to purchase your new weapons and depart for Sinnoh," Jihae said. "But should we be unable to avoid him, I would advise caution." He looked at Miyuki. "I will avenge my sister and dethrone my father but for now ensuring your safety is more important. But do not worry. As soon as you and your sister have completed your trials, my father will not be in a position to hurt anyone any longer."

Jiro was happy to follow after Drake. Water and fish sounded nice. He didn't make any comments about what he'd seen, if anything, when it came to the future in the capital.

Megumi watched the two of them leave and bit her lip softly. She was worried. But Jihae and Kuro were right. Hikari and Drake needed new weapons and the closest place to get good ones was the capital. She sighed softly but then looked at Miyuki.

Jihae was doing the same. "I don't like the idea of you being alone with Snake. I would prefer you stay by my side," he said. "But...I can't ask you to go where father is either..."

"I won't go to the capital," Miyuki said with a shake of her head. "I have no intention of ever seeing him again." She looked at Snake. She didn't know where he would take her but she'd prefer anywhere but the capital.

"I can do that," Jiro said. That really wasn't an issue. And yes, he was pretty much hungry all the time. Even though he'd just dried off from Hikari accidentally splashing him, he dove into the water of the lake to catch fish, which he promptly ate before drinking the water and cleaning off his fur.

Yuui looked down at Hikari and put his arm around her. "It's okay," he said quietly. "Your brother may be a little darker than he advertised originally but he still has a good heart and his darkness comes from a good place."

Jihae frowned ever so slightly. "Is this what you want?" he asked his sister rather than say anything to Snake. He didn't much like the guy but he was being good about that so far.

"It is," Miyuki said.

"Then do as you wish and we'll meet with you later," Jihae said. "You know how to reach me." Then he left the little group and went to retrieve the horses so that they could depart.

Megumi felt incredibly uncomfortable. "He's not that bad," she said quietly to Snake. "He just wanted to save her as he wasn't there when Father went mad."

Jiro thought on that. "You do...but not with the hands that you possess now," he said. Which was sufficently vague that it wouldn't make a whole lot of sense to Drake until he found out the full truth.

"I know," Yuui said. "You are a Hunter. Even in these times, we know how their lives are. It changes people. Don't be concerned. As long as there is good in your heart, all will be well."

Megumi bit her lip again. Jihae couldn't have asked. She was too far gone. He had to make the choice in the moment to let her go or save her. And he'd chosen to save her. Perhaps it had been wrong but his heart had been in the right place.

"What?" Jiro asked. He did not understand that reference. "You will not use your hands. I meant the hands you had before you were born." Which didn't really clear it up.

Yuui gave Hikaru a squish. "You know, sometimes duty outweighs personal desires," he said to Snake. "Besides, every wish has a price."

Megumi leaned into Kuro, grateful that he was standing up for her brother. Jihae could be difficult but he did mean the best and he cared about her and her twin quite a lot.

'It's all right," Miyuki said to Snake. "My brother only ever does what he thinks is right. But even great kings make mistakes."
