I am a Modest Arcanine called Cerberus. I also have a best friend who is a Empoleon that goes by the name of King. One day, we both decided to have an adventure in Relic Castle to see if we could get some rare items like fossils, TMs and maybe even gold--if we were lucky enough, of course. We barely had any trouble going through Desert Resort, except for the Sandile popping out of the sand and trying to attack us, but failed anyway. It has seemed like forever we were searching for the Castle, but my eyes soon saw an entrance on the floor in the distance. I ran to it as fast as I could. "Come on, King!"

King looked down at the entrance and then looked at me.

"Ready?"

I didn't know, I was sensing something that worried me a little but I ignored it anyway. "Yeah, sure…"

We both walked into the castle and I looked around. The entire floor was covered with sand and clay blocks that made up the walls. As I stepped more and more into the ruins, the same sense that was worrying me became stronger and stronger, so strong that it overwhelmed me a little bit. King watched me as if he knew something was on my mind. 

"Cerberus, what's wrong?"

I sighed. "I don't know man, it's just that--"

"CERBERUS, YOU'RE SINKING!" Buried in my thoughts, I quickly snapped out of it and felt something sucking me up under my feet. I had soon realized that I was being dragged down by a pit of quicksand. I tried to get my legs out with all my might, but it was futile.

"Agh, help!"

"Don't worry Cerberus, I've got you!" King said as he grabbed onto my fur, attempting to pull me up from the quicksand. He was trying his hardest, but the quicksand was so strong that it pulled us both in.

"Dang it!" He said as we both fell into the hole and ended up in a pool of sand.

"Wow... what a fall." King dusted himself off. "Are you alright, Cerberus?"

"Yeah."

I was surprised that had happened; I was never so careless before. I had made both of us fall in another room for nothing. It was... weird.

"Cerberus, there's something underneath that other sand pool over there!" King ran to the pool and found a heart scale.

"Aw, I thought it would be something more valuable." I walked up to him.

"Yeah, that would've been awesome…" King gave me the same look he did when he asked me what was wrong.

"Cerberus, what were you trying to say before we got in that quicksand situation?"

"Um, I was sensing something mysterious that worried me, like if something or someone was watching us."

King watched me as if I was crazy.

"No, seriously, King!"

"Well, if you say so, then I guess I believe you." He said. "Anyway, let's go up those stairs over there, they should probably lead us back to the place we fell. Just try to be more cautious next time."

Be more cautious?! No one had ever had to tell me that before in my entire life. Something was definitely wrong in this castle, and I wanted to find out what it was. King's guess was right, it did lead us back to the place we fell from. We jumped down from a ledge and slowly walked past the quicksand pits, seeing another flight of stairs. We walked down the stairs and saw a TM semi-buried underneath the sand.    

"Awesome, another item! I wonder what TM it is!" King said as he ran to the TM to pick it up. I darted after him.

"King, wait up!"

King picked it up and looked at it. "Gotcha!"

Suddenly, I felt the sand beginning to sink underneath us."King! The sand is sinking!"  

"Huh?" He said. Before he could even realize it, we fell into a hole. The last thing I saw at that time was clay bricks making up the floor instead of sand. 

After that, my head impacted on the floor and I became unconscious.

Eventually, I regained consciousness and received a large amount of pain in my head. I opened my eyes, but my eyesight was very blurry. I tried to get up, but it didn't work at all. It felt as if something was just pushing me back down. My ears began to pick up someone speaking in the background… 

No, two people. No, three people. No, four people. No, even more than that!

"I don't care if you need a body! Just leave me and my friend out of it!" That was King's voice! But who was he talking to? And why the hell were they talking about bodies?!

"Very well then, we will have to take it by force. Take him down." This guy had a very deep and dark voice, but who the hell was he?

"Yes, Lord Aaron!"…        

Many people said this, but who was Lord Aaron? Aaron is a human name, right? Was it a human King was talking to? It was like a battlefield; I was hearing all kinds of blasts being fired and hearing grunts from King…  

Who ever these people were, they were attacking my best friend, and I wouldn't let that happen. I took in a deep breath and tried to get up once again, this time succeeding.

Even though my vision was still a bit blurry, I could see things better. I turned around and found King fighting a whole group of Pokémon levitating. A sharp pain was delivered to my head as I groaned in pain. This was bad; King was in trouble and I couldn't even help him properly. I took a step forward and fell back down again…  

I tried another step again and still fell back down. I still kept on trying. I had to save my friend.

"Cerberus, stay back! Don't worry about me, just get out of here while you can!"    

"But--"        

"Just go!" I turned around and saw another pathway on the the other side of the room.  

"Get the Arcanine as well!"  

The dark and deep voice came back again. "Damn, damn, damn, damn, damn!" I said to myself. My skull was still hurting insanely, and the rest of my body wasn't in such a good condition either… The path had many twists and turns, exactly like some kind of maze where I was the mouse and who ever was chasing me was the cat. I picked a random way to go and followed it. I heard something like Shadow Ball being fired at me. Were these people ghost Pokémon? Not being able to run much further, I hid behind a wall, hoping they wouldn't find me.

"Where did he go?" A voice said.   

"Come out, little pig." Another voice said. My eyesight had finally come back fully, but I couldn't fight them just yet, especially if there were 2 or more. I didn't have much of a chance though, if they find me, it would be all over. I just had to keep on hiding until my head stopped hurting a bit and then I could burn them all with a Flamethrower or give them a Crunch they'll never forget, even though I didn't want to damage my skull even more than it is damaged now.

"I can tell you're scared, piggy."    

Oh crap! That voice was nearby! I wish I could have had Substitute. That may have not made a difference anyway though. "It's nothing personal, we just want your soul, that's all." I gasped.

"THERE YOU ARE!"    

They had found me! I looked up and saw what Pokémon they were. Yamask. The two of them fired Shadow Ball at me, but I was able to counter it with my Flamethrower, which produced a cloud of smoke and sent the Yamask flying into the wall. Yes! They were done for! Now I could go and save King! I used Extreme Speed and raced back to the room we fell in and saw King with his back turned.

"King! Thank Arceus you're fine!"……  I went close to him and nudged him. "Let's get out of here! Quick!" He kept on standing there with his back turned, motionless. "King?"      

"Oh, I'm fine, but you won't be." He said.

"King, stop joking around already, let's go!"

"I'm not joking."    

His voice was much deeper than usual. He turned around and used Aqua Jet on me, sending me crashing into the wall. 

"Ugh… " I coughed up blood a little.    

Yamask began appearing next to him and surprisingly didn't attack him. What ever the hell was going on, I didn't like it. King examined his flippers. "This body is powerful. I didn't expect it to be so strong."  

I looked at King. He had a purple-like glow in his eyes which he never had before. "King… why did you attack me?…"

He chuckled a little. "Sorry to tell you this, but King is no more." I gasped again; if this wasn't King, who could it be?

"I am Lord Aaron. I have possessed your friend forever."        

"No… never… " The Yamask began bleeding blood out of their eyes as it ran down their masks. "And now, you will be possessed as well. Yamask, possess him while he's weak."

The Yamask all rushed at me and vanished when they hit the surface of my face. Then, I started to feel something making me rise off the ground and levitate.

"King… HELP!" I said.

"I told you already, King is no more."

"WHY ARE YOU DOING THIS TO US?!"

"Because, we used to have bodies when we were once humans, but now we don't. We need to possess bodies to remind us what it is like to be a person with a body again." I fell down on the ground suddenly. Yamask appeared next to Aaron once again, still crying their tears of blood. Aaron looked at them. "Why didn't you possess him?"

"Lord Aaron, somehow he can't be possessed!"  

"Well, I guess I'll just have to kill him, then."

Aaron started charging up one of King's Hydro Pumps in his mouth.

"Say goodbye to your life, forever!"

…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

A sensation of heat flew across my face and hit the incoming Hydro Pump, making another gigantic cloud of smoke. But it wasn't me.

I looked around to see who it was that sent that attack, but it was too hard to see. "Where did that blast come from?" Someone said.

"Show yourself!" Another said.

There was a lot of mumbling from the Yamask. "Psst."

I looked around again.

"Over here."

I noticed someone pop out of the smoke, he had red wings with black dots in them and two blue eyes.

"Hop on my back if you want to live."

I wondered if it was a trap that the Yamask or the Cofagrigus set up, but I barely had any choice at all.

I climbed on his back.

"Hang on tight." He used his powerful wings to fly me back up from the hole where I fell in an instant, making most of the smoke disappear.

"Get off now." He said.

I got off but I needed to ask him a question.

"Thanks for saving me, but who are you?"

"You may call me Volcarona, but we can discuss that later. We need to get out of here, now."
