[IC] Setting Off  
*The morning had started off grey and dewy, but by the time Steven arrived in the Meeting Area to collect Jirachi, the sun had started to break through the clouds and the spring flowers were opening.

With the Wishing Star floating alongside him, he wanders away from the field and out towards the coastline, treading familiar ground. Although- he hasn't actually been this way in some time.

The sea is a bright, crystal blue this morning, matching the cloudless, pure sky perfectly. It's so calm, it's almost like a perfect liquid mirror, so calm and motionless. The sun is just warm enough to take away the chill, but Steven wears his red scarf even still, fluttering in the morning breeze behind him.

He smiles slightly as he spots a familiar house in the distance- the one he used to live in, the one Riley now occupies. Remembering how he let his best man have the house after he'd moved out, he smiles and heads to the front door.

Knocking on it sharply, he wonders if he's the first visitor Riley has had at this house...*

*Riley jolts up as Steven knocks on the door; he had been asleep on the sofa. He groans and runs a hand through his hair before getting up and answering the door. His appearence could be better- he has bed hair and is wearing a simple blue shirt and scruffy jeans.*

...Hey, you!

Hey, Riley!

*He grins widely when he sees him.*

I'm out travelling for a few days and I was passing by, so I thought I'd stop and say hello! I haven't seen you for a while...

Travelling, hmm? Is the psycho being too clingy?

*Steps aside to let Steven in.*

N-o, it's his birthday soon, so I'm out looking for a present for him...

Don't call him a psycho, he's very sweet to me... He just isn't too fond of you and it's too bad, that's all...

He tried to punch me, so he's a psycho. Who'd want to damage this pretty face?

Can I?

Thanks, Riley.

*Luckily for Steven, Riley must have cleaned the house recently- it's almost spotless, save for some plates and mugs. The furniture is entirely blue, and sat upon the sofa is Marilyn, Riley's Lucario.*

*Looks around, admiring the furniture.*

I like what you've done with the place! The blue furniture is very you, Riley. Oh! I didn't ask- how are you, anyway?

*He spots the Lucario sat on the sofa.*

That's... Marilyn, right?

I'm great, Stevie~

*Marilyn perks her ears up as she hears her name being mentioned. She tilts her head to one side and hops off the sofa to go over and sniff at Steven.*

Yep, that's Marilyn. You got Cairo with you?

Steven Stone: very happy[personal profile] whisperingsteel on April 14th, 2009 01:02 pm (UTC)
Glad to hear it!

*Steven smiles as the canine approaches him, then reaches out to stroke her ears softly.*

Naw, I left Cairo at home, with Steven and his Absol, Garnet. See, Cairo and Garnet had puppies a while back, and we gave most of them away. I thought it would be best to leave Cairo with Garnet.

I do have my Glaceon with me, and an egg than I'm still waiting for.

Ah, alright. Well, bring Cairo over sometime- I'm sure Marilyn would love to see her son, you know?

*Marilyn makes soft, contented growling sounds and leans into the strokes.*

...Wait, you have a Glaceon?

Mm, I'll bring him over sometime. I'm sure he'd like to see his mother.

*Eventually stops stroking Marilyn and reaches for Rey's PokéBall- shiny and red, an unusual Cherish Ball.*

I do. You remember when I ran away after Steven proposed to me? Well, he found the Glaceon out in the rain and took him in. He gave him to me for Christmas.

*He sends Reykjavik out.*

Well, to be honest, I didn't realise for a long time myself! I thought that Glaceons started life pale and grew darker as they got older.

There's a picture of some in a book I have, so I just assumed. It was Zero who pointed out he's a Shining Pokémon to me! I knew he was special, just not how much so...~

Naw, Steven. I've seen plenty of Glaceon's and none like this.

*Cuddles Rey close and scratches behinds his long ears.*

Wow, you're lucky, you know.

Steven Stone: smile[personal profile] whisperingsteel on April 14th, 2009 01:17 pm (UTC)
Mm, they're rare, aren't they? Pokémon like him...

It was just good fortune that he ended up with Steven. But it does make me wonder- did he arrive fully evolved? Are there wild Eevee here on the Island? And if there are, then are there shards of the Ice Rock here, too?

He's only young, so maybe he arrived evolved already...

*Steven smiles as Rey purrs happily in Riley's arms, leaning into his scratches and strokes.*

Well, given everything else that's happened here, another Ice Rock seems very probable. Ah, he's a little sweetie!

Steven Stone: smile[personal profile] whisperingsteel on April 14th, 2009 01:19 pm (UTC)
If that's the case, I'd be interested in finding it! Maybe it's up in the hills somewhere? Or out in the woods, where Steven found him...

Isn't he just? He's very good tempered.

So, can I getcha anything to eat? Drink?
