LongingKayrana's journey had just started. Her companion and best friend, Aurai, her Ralts, looked preoccupied at her Trainer, the one person she loved most in the world. The forest—forests always reminded Aurai of when Kayrana and her had met, that fateful evening when Kayrana, just a kid, had gotten lost in the forest, and she came to her rescue, and from then on, they were always together—in which they were was huge and with great, tall trees. Whimsi, meanwhile, Kayrana's Whimsicott, whom they had just befriended a while ago after helping the Whimsicott escape from some captors—a story for another time—jumped excitedly in circles around Kayrana. Aurai was standing atop Kayrana's right shoulder—one of her favourite spots, for sure—as Kayrana slowly walked, looking for any good herbs she could find. She had grown-up as a herbalist, after all, taking after her parents. She loved berries, too. And so did Aurai. After a moment, Kayrana stopped and turned to look at Aurai. "Is there anything wrong, Aurai? Heh, you keep looking at me, seemingly worried, is there something on your mind?" she said, and she caressed her little friend's red horns. Aurai felt at ease. Oh, how she wished she could speak to Kayrana, Aurai thought. There was nothing that she wished for in the world than that. She could sense people's emotions, but she would trade that ability for the ability to talk to Kayrana in a heartbeat. "Ralts, Ralt!" She exclaimed, hoping, maybe, that magically her words would turn into human language. And she smiled at Kayrana, her most precious person in the world, she didn't want to worry her, after all. Aurai caressed Kayrana's cheek with her little hands, and seemed joyous. "Hey, I love you, Aurai! Let's keep going, shall we? For us two together... there's nothing to stop us!" she said as she beamed, facing Aurai. Aurai wondered if her feelings were as hers. It would be a long trip to the next town, after all. ------------------------------------------------ Chapter one. This is a series where I'll be exploring Aurai and Kayrana's relationship. They are my OCs. Just something—shortish, probably—I'll be writing for fun when I get the chance. Comments are encouraged and appreciated! Please let me know what you think .
