Chapter 1 Section 1 (Shards of 2 Broken Souls)
Spectre the quilava sat in the drivers seat of a red truck. Millions upon millions of thoughts running through his head. His eyes were puffy and wet, his cheeks wet with tears, and his pupils were small. The Red truck followed by a trailer drove through the midnight hour on a lonely dark road. Spectre then noticed the time then looked at the road ahead, it looked dark and scary. He saw a pull out to a camp site up ahead, he wiped his eyes and pulled in slowly. During the late winter and early spring seasons the campsite around these area's tend to be deserted and unused so it would be a good spot for a free night of sleep.
March 3rd 2134...
The midnight mist drifted into the campsite. The truck was abandon, but the trailer lights we're on. The young Quilava dug through several photos trying to not cry. He then pulled a group photo of several circus clown pokemon and in a young Typhlosion's arms was him as a Cyndaquil wearing his dad's hat. Spectre looked up at the closet and walked up to the closet and opened it and jumpped. It was filled with many new costumes including a box that had faded writing on it saying Jason. Spectre soon shut the closet and walked over to his bed tell his ears twitched, he looked up and pinned his back to the counter,
"What was that?" thought Spectre to himself. Spectre soon grabbed a flashlight and ran outside, quickly turning left and right with the flashlight Spectre ran in a random direction with the flashlight pointing out ever thing on the ground. Spectre soon came running and stopped again and pointed the flashlight around. He soon saw a pair of Ariados with a Salamence wrapped up in silk. Spectre dropped his light and picked it up to notice one of the large spider like pokemon shooting silk at Spectre's body. Spectre jumpped out of the way and rolled across the ground. Spectre soon felt a cold wet liquid on his back, he touched it distracted and looked at his hand, it was blood. Spectre soon felt the silk wrap around his leg and trip him. The Aridos began dragging him in closer toward it's mouth. Spectre looked around and grabbed a large branch and swung it at it's eye lid. The branch snapped and the Ariados took off, the other still hissed at Spectre as it was guarding the dragon pokemon. It soon came at Spectre in a charge, Spectre panicking, pulled out a switch blade from his pocket and began trying to cut his stocked feet free. The Ariados came charging at Spectre with it's fangs open wide ready to wrap around Spectre's neck and snap it. Spectre was cutting to slow however and kept looking back up and down at the incoming Ariados. Spectre looked around for another branch big enough to do damage with his flashlight, there wasn't one. Spectre soon turned back and it was almost there. Spectre out of pure fear switched the switchblades position and right when it got close enough, Spectre stabbed it in the head. It instantly fell on top of him. Spectre layed there for a second trying to catch his breath. He soon pulled the blade out and pushed the large pokemon off. He then finally cut himself free and ran over to the Salamence, it was unconcious, but still breathing. Spectre looked at it and began to drag it back to camp.
As soon as he got the massive pokemon back, he laid it on the queen sized bed and cut the silk off. Spectre looked at the several huge cuts all over it's body and grabbed his first aid kit. Spectre soon took some medicine and began to pure it onto it's wounds. The Salamence slowly began to come around after he was finished,
"W-where am I," said the Salamence. Spectre instantly turned around and reached into his pocket for self defense. The Salamence tried to sit up and cringed in pain. Spectre reached out of his pocket empty handed and put both hands in front of him,
"Don't move, you're really hurt," said Spectre. He began to wrap his wounds with bandages. The Salamence watched Spectre, Spectre constantly looked up and down at the Salamence then finished. Spectre finally pulled up a chair and sat in front of the Salamence.
"I heard you roar, when I found you, two Ariados were going to make a midnight snack out of you," said Spectre. The Salamence looked at the bandages then back at the torn silk and looked away,
"You should have just left me," said the Salamence. He layed his head down and looked at Spectre. Spectre looked at the Salamence in confusion then crossed his arms,
"So do you have a name?" asked Spectre, the salamence looked around then sighed,
"It's Comet, Comet Kaius," sighed the Salamence. Spectre looked at Comet and nodded,
"I'm Spectre," said Spectre, he then got up and sat next to Comet, Comet sighed then looked away from him,
"Your part of the Kaius clan, so why, why are you alone, where is the rest of the Kaius clan?" asked Spectre in confusion. Comet shook his head,
"They abandon me, they beat me up, then left me to die," said Comet. Comet then began to tear up. Spectre looked at Comet in shock,
"Spectre, I did alot of horrible stuff that I knew was horrible, but when I decided I couldn't do it anymore, they beat me up and abandon me, I can't fly, nor can I walk, no Salamence clan wants a crippled, especially one that needs help," cried Comet. Spectre rubbed his back,
"You walking problem is just caused by a loss of blood, you'll walk again by morning, but I don't know about your wings," said Spectre. Comet looked at Spectre still crying,
"I'm still a crippled, I am dead if I find a clan, I'm dead if I go to civilization, maybe I should have just died then and there," sighed Comet. Spectre rubbed his back,
"Don't think like that Comet," said Spectre. Spectre soon began to think then something popped into his head,
"Hey why not stick with me Comet," said Spectre. Comet soon lifted his head and looked at Spectre in surprise, his eyes were soon filled with wonder,
"W-what?" asked Comet, Spectre soon ran over to the closet and grabbed the box sitting on the floor with his name on it and brought it to the bed with an excited smile,
"Of course you will have a job and will work with me," smiled Spectre. Comet looked at his paws then slowly moved them toward Spectre,
"L-like?" said Comet nervously, Spectre gave Comet a clean smile,
"Well in your condition you would only hurt yourself, wait tell later today when your well rested," smiled Spectre. Comet smiled at Spectre, Spectre soon took the box and put it on the floor, he then turned off the light and went into the back of the trailer and climbed on the bottom left bunk, Comet laid down,
"Thanks Spectre, your honestly my first friend" smiled Comet. He laid his head down on the pillow and soon fell asleep. Spectre sat awake up in the dark smiling to himself happy he made his first new friend.
Next morning Comet woke up, but he was blindfolded almost instantly after he woke up, Comet began looking around,
"Spectre!" yelled Comet, a small hand rubbed his neck, Comet smiled knowing it was Spectre,
"Spectre what is going on?" asked Comet. Spectre smiled and jumpped off the bed with a small jar of make up and a paint brush in his hand. Spectre was dressed as a circus clown, already had his white make up on with his blue long sleeve shirt with yellow cuffs covered in blue polka dots. He had white gloves on, his blue hat on his head with yellow polka dots, his yellow vest with blue polka dots, and his yellow baggy pants. Spectre soon dug into the box sitting on the ground.
"It is ok Comet, I am just preparing you for your job, but I want you to listen to me and trust me," smiled Spectre. Comet nodded back and smiled nervously, Spectre soon got to work, Comet felt stuff going down his neck and hanging off his front shoulders, he felt something come around, he felt some weird tube go up his legs, then he felt Spectre pull his arm through something and put a cover over his hands. He then felt Spectre brush his hair and mess it up so it hung down his face. Comet raised an eye, but kept smiling. Spectre soon topped it off with a hat and something that stuck on the tip of his nose. Spectre soon pushed a mirror in front of Comet and took the blind fold off revealing a star over his right eye, Spectre smiled,
"All set!" smiled Spectre. Comet opened his eyes and looking in the mirror, he gasped and look all over his body and how silly he looked. His once scary face was designed with silly stars. His white chest plate was covered with a red shirt with a star in the middle carrying bells on the end. His hands that once were covered in blood were covered by yellow gloves, his feet had socks over them, his combed hair was messy and stuck out in front of him. He looked like a new silly kind of salamence. Comet soon looked at Spectre and both smiled at each other,
"You look silly Spectre!" laughed Comet. Comet's eyes were full of color and weren't darkened with depression anymore. Spectre offered a hand and Comet took it, he pushed himself off the bed and stood on two legs, at first almost tipping over, but caught himself and began to walk goofily out the trailer door. Comet soon tripped onto his stomach, but stood on two legs and got a new center of balance. Comet soon turned around and looked down at Spectre,
"Welcome to the current two man circus Comet" smiled Spectre holding out his hand. Comet looked at Spectre's hand then took it and smiled at Spectre. Comet smiled at Spectre,
"What is a circus?," smiled Comet. Spectre laughed,
"A circus is where we entertain people and make them laugh and amazed, we are pokeclowns" laughed Spectre. Comet soon jumpped then smiled,
"It sounds like something I want to do, I've had enough with destruction, I want to help others and make them smile," smiled Comet. Spectre smiled back before Comet sat on all fours and grabbed Spectre and put him on his neck. Spectre smiled at Comet then both looked at the sky,
"You know Comet, just last night I felt the same way you did," smiled Spectre. Comet looked at Spectre in surprise,
"I didn't want to be part of this world, I lost mother and my dad, I ran away from home leaving my mom behind, she forced me to leave so I could live free, I didn't know where to start, but I'm glad I met you," smiled Spectre. Comet smiled at Spectre,
"I'm glad I met you as well Spectre," smiled Comet. Soon the trailer door slammed behind them, both flipped around,
"What on earth!" yelled Spectre, both ran over, Spectre tried to open the door, but it was locked. Spectre began to beat on the door,
"Hey! Get out! Unlock this door, Right now!" yelled Spectre. Soon a voice growled from inside,
"Why don't you make me, oh that's right, I'm in here, and your locked out!" said the young voice inside. Inside the trailer the fridge closed to reveal a Poochyena digging into a box of food. It smiled and laughed as Spectre continued to beat on the door.
