The Shining Ember of Alola (USUM/Ben 10 2016 Crossover)
We left for Konikoni. "Don't tell anyone," I hissed. "Not about the Rattata, not about me, not about ANY of this." "...we might be a tad late on that," remarked Ben. I looked up. Several humans in strange armor were in the market, interviewing everyone. "Oh Deerling," I hissed. (Sorry it's short)
(urgh trying) "What's going on?!" cried Ben. He darted into the market, as I wound my tail around his arm. I didn't want to lose him-chances were he'd say something stupid. "A meteor fell on Akala," explained one guy. "You didn't see it?!" "Oh, I saw it!" Ben replied cheerily. "SHUTITSHUTITSHUTIT," I muttered. "You're gonna say something stuu~pid!"
(bump so it's nyot deleted)
"I was there," said Ben, as I desperately telepathically screeched for him to shut up and leave. "You were?!" asked the guy. "Ben. Don't answer that," I telepathically hissed. Ben, thankfully, remained silent this time. Either he was finally listening or he realized how bad this could get. "I've...uh, gotta..." Ben began, slowly backing away. The guy grabbed his arm. Thankfully, it was not the arm my tail was currently wrapped around. "It can wait," the guy eerily hissed. "Miss Lusamine simply must meet you. You wouldn't want to keep her waiting?" (hoo boy cliffhangeeeer~)
(WE'RE FINYALLY BACK!) Ben muttered something under his breath. He frantically yanked at the arm caught in the man's grasp, but that guy had a grip like a Machoke. "Lemme go!" Ben shrieked. "Yo guys, found a kid who was there!" shouted Ben's captor. "Let's get him to Lusamine!" The others began packing up. "Ever consider I don't want to meet your psycho boss?!" Ben screamed. "...not an option, and who you calling psycho?" replied the grunt. "Did you somehow miss the Necrozma fiasco?!" "How was that Lusamine's fault?" "If she hadn't captured that Cosmog, she wouldn't have sicced the 'Pillager of Light' on all of Alola!" ...he has a point, y'know. "It's a freakin Necrozma, who's to say it wasn't gonna slice open an Ultra Wormhole and wreak havoc anyway?!" "Lusamine still sped it up!" "Enough," hissed a voice. I looked up, seeing Ben do so as well from the corner of my eye. A pale blonde guy wearing translucent green goggles was standing there, arms folded and foot impatiently tapping the ground. "M-Mr. Faba!" shrieked the man grasping Ben's arm. "Why in Alola are you dragging around this child?" the guy with the goggles asked. "He said he was at the meteor crash!" replied the grunt. The other dude-Faba, was it?-yanked out some weird-looking radar thingy. "...well, he certainly DOES have unusual levels of Wormhole energy around him..." noted Faba. "And...hmmm, something else mixed in...particularly around that watch..." Ben seemed to take that as a cue to kick his captor in the shin. The grunt hopped about, clutching the injured limb, giving Ben the chance to dart away-which I only noticed myself when I was dragged away with a yelp. I'd forgotten my tail was still wound around his arm. (yeah, the Nyecrozma thing's common knyowledge in this 'verse)
(Sorry 'bout that wait!) (also when did I lose a reader) Ben arrowed off, me flying helplessly behind him. I didn't know the town like he did; he probably knew a few good hiding places that I nor the goons would be able to find. He ducked into a side alley and slid into a bush. I floated into it with him. "Can I do the Rattata thing now?!" he asked. "Yeah," I replied, unwinding my tail from his arm, "now seems like a good time to slip away." Ben started twisting the faceplate of the watch. He peeked out of the bush for a moment, then gave the emblem one final turn and smacked it down. Another bright flash, and there perched a little Rattata. "This is still pretty weird," Ben muttered. One of the grunts, drawn by the flash, peered into the bush, but all he saw was a run-of-the-mill Rattata. Nothing special to him.
