ch. 7 Castle Viper Hollow

It has been about 2 weeks since the research ship had sailed off from the Canal and Curitiba. Satoshi had been doing a lot of studying in his room on the books, trying his best to learn how to control himself, and see if there were anything he could use to make a potion that would make him and the world more perfect, but so far he had come up with nothing. He got all of his dirty clothes back all cleaned. However, Satoshi had to keep up with his work as a boiler controller, talking with his friends, and keeping up his Pokemon doctor training with his Pikachu, helping it when it got sick, and cleaning up it's messes. He was glad to be back working with machines, the feel of oil and the cracking of machines was oddly relaxing to the boy. Plus Satoshi was doing a lot more interactions with the gang that Barry hanged around during lunch and his free time and learned of all the locations of the ship so he wouldn't get lost, and he got re-antiquated him with the weird numbering on the doors. And how the third floor had rooms valves that help the boiler room. Not to mention the fact that about haft of the rooms had three layer bunk beds since there were a lot of people. He quickly learned of a stadium like room on the main deck level which was one level above the level Satoshi was living in, where large events of some sort would happen when they finally reached land. Satoshi also had Pikachu go out and exercise with him and eating in the cafeteria. Though the food was good, Satoshi would always have it with a bit of blood from his bottles, which were described as wine. Satoshi wished that it was actually wine since he missed the taste so much. Usually the bottles were emptied out, but that was probably because he was only using the small bottles for now. Though Satoshi couldn't feel the fear he enjoyed when he drained the host. Satoshi also got equated some more with Bellrock and the kitchen crew and learned more about cooking. But the kitchen soon realized that the boy was bad a making tea since he added blood to the drinks, so they made Barry the one to bring tea to the boy whenever he needed it, which was every morning. Unfortunately, it was the getting harder and harder for Satoshi to wake up in a good mode ever since the boy kept having bad dreams about him either being exactly like the movie version Dracula, which he learned all about from the sailors, and attacking random villages, or attacking and raping several boys the teen had seen while he was on the ship which was really weird since he had seen plenty of women. His tea was the only thing that made him feel more happy and alive after the nightmares.

Today, Satoshi was waiting for his morning tea. He was very aggravated since he had another nightmare, and his hair reached midway down his back. His sideburns also have grown, but Satoshi didn't really care about. He did have to shave now since he had a five o'clock shadow now. Satoshi sighed as he touches the fuzz on his face. 'Shavings going to be a pain without a reflection!' Satoshi yelled, he was dentally not happy. Pikachu was now skinny like and more tall. It looked at his master in worry. Ever since his master desired to learn to be more 'perfect' he was feeling more cold and distant to not only his friends, but the little mouse as well. Pikachu nuzzles up to his master. He wanted him to genially smile again. It had been so long since the last one. Satoshi looks the mouse in irritation. Satoshi held his head, trying to keep himself from yelling at his mouse friend. He needed something to calm himself down. Suddenly a knock was heard from the door. "WHAT IS IT!?" Satoshi screams, his eyes were now ruby red. "I-it's me... Barry... Satoshi... your getting more and more scary the more you mature. Anyways, I have your tea." Barry said, scarred of his friend. Satoshi smiles. Pikachu smiles at this, it wasn't the crazy smile his master usually had on him. Satoshi opens the door. "Th...thanks." The vampire said as he grabs the cup from his friend's hands. Soon he drank his tea. He sighs in relief. "Ah, yes. That hit the spot. Sorry about yelling at you earlier. I'm not myself until I have a cup. I think it's my intelligent side in activation," Satoshi said, noticing his bad moods in the morning. Barry laughs. "No problem." The yellow blonde said. He walks into Satoshi's room, there were a lot of books on the spare bed. "So these are the books you've been studying on." Barry said. Satoshi nodded. "I'm almost haft way done with my collection of medical books," Satoshi said. He looks at his medical bag. He sees that Barry had also brought him some breakfast. "Oh, here's breakfast... Anyways the guys are wondering why you're acting so weird. You seem much more cold, especially in the mornings." Barry said, he was worried too. Satoshi grabbed the plate and sits on the floor, he goes his medical bag and sees that all of his small bottles were now gone. "I just wanted to say that since you've been so cold to me," Barry said, kind of glum. Satoshi felt sorry.

"Sorry about all of that, mate. But I've been to busy studying to really notice." Satoshi said. He didn't want to tell the real reason to his friend, which was the guilt he was feeling for the kills he made. He didn't want Barry learn that he was the real killer of the two vampires. Barry smiles. "Now would you be a dear and clean of my small bottles?" Satoshi asked as he gets out a medium sized bottle from his bag, which he had put in the bag yesterday. He soon points to his medical bag which was full of empty bottles. Barry nodded. "Of course. Besides glass bottles aren't that though on blood like your clothes are. Some people asked why there was blood on them, but I was able to give them some good answers. Man it was hard getting all that grim, blood, and smell of," Barry said as he remembers how the washing workers complained about Satoshi's dirty clothes. Satoshi smiles. Barry looks at Satoshi's movement. "I haven't noticed until now, but your a right handed guy," Barry said. "Yeah. Well, that's not really important. So I never told you. Besides, why would knowing what my useful hand mean anything," Satoshi said. "It isn't, but your right arm is also where your birthmark is." Barry said. Satoshi nodded. Satoshi soon ate his eggs and ham, and drank all of the blood. "Man that's good." Satoshi said. He really like the taste of blood. Then he became sad. "So good that it almost makes me forget where it came from," The vampire said as he looked at his empty plate in sadness. Barry soon gets out a small mirror. "Hey, here's mirror, I got it from my friends. They said you can have it. Besides you look a bit messy." Barry said. Satoshi puts down his plate and looks at the mirror. However he had no reflection, but oddly his clothes were fully visible. Satoshi looked sad. "Remember, I'm a Vampire. I don't have reflections. The only thing we learn is that my clothes don't disappear." Satoshi said, annoyed. Barry soon remembers as he puts it back in his pants. "Whoops. Sorry. But that's an interesting trivia." He said. Satoshi sighs. He grabs a book he had already started reading earlier. Barry grabs the plate. "Maybe your so jaded in the morning is because of how you sleep. Sleeping upside down does sound uncomfortable." Barry said. Satoshi looks at him, then nods.

"Well, the ship will be soon reaching London. Satoshi, this is your chance. Now you can go outside and learn more about the world, maybe find an older vampire that will teach you the ways of being a better vampire. And we can do that together." Barry said with a large smile, he puts his arm around Satoshi in a friendly manner. Satoshi smiles. Pikachu holds onto his master's shoulder as the teen gets up. "Yes. I believe this is a bond that will not break." Satoshi said. Suddenly a horn was blown; however, it was different than any other horns currently heard here. "Attention passengers. We'll be arriving in Camelot within a few hours. Please come to the main holding area on level 0 for group instructions. Repeat," A speaker voice said. It soon repeated itself. "Group instructions?" Jekyll said in confusion as the message was repeated. He never heard of that before, but that's probably cause he didn't read that much of the panelist, and it never came up when he talked with Barry since they were talking about their past friends and their family. Satoshi looks at Barry. "OH! Those things, I remember those group things being mentioned in the panelist. According to them, the ship will be divided into three teams. One will deal with one part of the area, one will deal with the big city that we land in, and another goes to another area. But I haven't been told what the order of the group is and where they go other than the fact that one group has to stay in the city to study how human and Pokemon relationships have grown." Barry said. This caused the vampire to worry. "But what if you and I aren't in the same group? What should I do?" Satoshi said, scarred. Pikachu was worried as well. Barry smiled. "Don't worry, even if that does happen, this would be the perfect time for you to met new people and become friends with them." Barry said. Satoshi looks at him. "Do you think they'll accept me?" He asked. Barry nodded. "Of course, you're a great guy. Just don't mention the vampire thing, they might not be ready." Barry said. Satoshi nodded. "Well we better get going, don't want to be late." Barry said. The vampire agrees. Soon Barry and Satoshi walked out of his cabin and walked over to the hall where the vampire sees the Caption along with a few scientists.

The vampire recognized the head scientists, they were Prof. Juniper, Prof. Birch, and Prof. Rowan. Behind them was a large sheet behind them and a projector in the middle. Satoshi was pleasantly surprised; he didn't know they were on the ship. 'Man I need to talk to more people on this ship so I won't be surprised by things like this. Though Barry should have told me about them.' The boy thought to himself, a little angry at Barry. He soon noticed that he lost Barry and sighs. He looks at Pikachu, who was excited. 'Well this was bond to happen. This place is crowded even thought there's only 90-ish people on board who aren't the main crew.' The boy thought. He soon stopped and looked at the adults. "Okay, let's have a roll call to make sure everyone is present." Prof. Birch said. Soon Prof. Rowan began calling out people's names. Satoshi sighed. Even with 90-ish people this was going to take a long time. After the long, boring roll call count, things finally got underway. "Hello everyone. I hoped everyone could make it to this session. With the roll call out of the way, let me introduce you to London and areas of Camelot where will send you for three months." Drake said as the slider was turned on. The first slide was of the island nation of Camelot which was divided into 9 sections. It was kind of shaped like a long log with pieces jagging out. London was in the south east part of the land and had a whole section to itself, but it didn't look like there was anyway for the ship to land in that harbor with the trigonometry they have. "The ship will dock at the dock port city of Halesworth with is in the West Sussex Region. First we will send the first group to the seashore town of Crystal Cove in the Hampshire region, the second team will go to the lake town Andover and live in the Castle Viper Hallow in Berkshire, and the third group will be London in Greater London. Crystal Cove is a small town that team one will be exploring along the lives of salt water Pokemon, Flying Pokemon, how Pokemon can be used to help us create new things, and the miracle of breeding.

"Viper Hollow is a large castle in the middle of the country a few miles from London that team two will be exploring along with the small town at the foot of the base of the castle, they will learn about cave Pokemon, Lake Pokemon, Forrest Pokemon, and the lore of this land. And Team three will be in London where they'll learn the connections between humans and Pokemon, Electrical and Mechanical Pokemon, and Contests." Drake said as he pressed a button that changed the slides which fallowed the man's speech. Satoshi smiled, this will be interesting. Then the man pushed the button again. It soon showed three circles and the Japanese's Alphabet. The circles were of the area they were standing in. Satoshi forgot that the nation of which all of the regions the people come from was called Japan. "In team one people with the last names A-H and will have Professor Juniper looking over them. In team two people with the last names I-Q and will have Professor Birch looking over them. And in team three people with the last names R-Z and will have Professor Rowan looking over them." Satoshi felt his jaw drop. He couldn't believe it, he and Barry wouldn't be in the same team. Satoshi soon remembers that Trip's last name was Summers so it meant Trip wouldn't be with him as well. 'Drat. I'll be all alone now, which means I'll have to make new friends in this group. This makes me wish my last name was Hyde or something like it so I wouldn't be separated from my friends. Hopefully one of Barry's sailor friends will be with me on the trip.' Satoshi thought as he forgot what the sailors he and Barry hang around were named. He sighed. 'Some friend I am for forgetting their names.' The boy thought, angry at himself. He was especially angry at himself for not making friends while working in the boiler room. "Now the groups will be divided up into the groups here, and when we reach the port, they will be divided up into four for the charades." Drake said. Soon the people began moving into the group. Satoshi waited in his area, waiting for the place to clear so he could properly get into his group, only moving so another person could go to where they were going. Satoshi soon moved to the area on the map where I-Q was as the area began to clear.

Satoshi was in the near edge of the circle of people, all of which he didn't recognized. Satoshi felt his anger rising. None of the sailors he knew would be with him. He looked at the other groups with jealously. He soon shocked his head. 'No, I'm fine. I can handle this. *sigh* It'll be like Privet school again. Hopefully I can make more friends than at there.' He thought to himself, but the nagging thoughts of his story still haunted in his mind. He still couldn't understand it and whether it was real or not. The scientists first came up to their respected group. Birch smiled. "So, is everyone with the last names I-Q here?" He asked. Everyone agreed. He looks at the other groups. He waited a little while encase someone accidentally got mixed up. Thankfully that didn't happen. He smiled. "Well, now with everything cleared up, I need to tell you that the charades that will take us to the castle are colored Red while the charades that will take people to London is Blue, and the charades that will take people to Crystal Cove is yellow. You will be waiting in front of your colored charades while everything is being packed up. When everything is ready, I'll divide you into groups of 6 or 4. Does everyone understand." Birch asked. Everyone yells yes. He smiles. "Okay, you better get packing. You don't want to leave anything behind, it maybe important to you." He said. Everyone agrees. Soon everyone said goodbye. Satoshi walked back to his cabin. He looked at his room, thinking where to begin with his packing. Pikachu looked at him in confusion. "Pikapi?" It asked. The boy was being very quite ever since the groups were announced. "Oh, it's nothing Pikachu. It's just we have to make new friends, that's all." He said to the mouse on his shoulder. Pikachu nodded. "Well, we'd better get packing." He said. The mouse nodded. The boy soon grabbed the bags under his beds and puts them on his old bed. He grabs the books that were on the other bed and began to put them in there. He soon grabbed the calender he forgot to put back and looks at the date. It was the 20th of September, 1970. If he still had school, he would be back at it by now. He grabs his pen from his notes section and marks the date with a circle and puts the letter "L" on the white area.

After he did that, put it back in his bag, and sealed up his ink. He cleans his pen, caps it, and puts it, his science notebook, and the ink pot into his bag. He looks through the bag to make sure everything was in there. Once done, he seals it up. He grabs the other bag, it had all of this brown vest combo. He smiles as he remembers all the clothes he remembered getting back. He soon shocked his head. Now wasn't the time to think of it. He noticed that all his other clothes weren't in his room at all, so he asked the crew and they said they were in a auburn cubit. Satoshi sighs as he remembers this little fiasco. Hopefully he'll have all those clothes when they reached land. Satoshi packed away all of Pikachu's food, and his chemicals. Once everything in his room except for his clock was packed, the boy sighed. He soon remembered he only wears his goggles when he's doing work and when he first came to the ship. He grabs his goggles from his bag and puts it on his head. Satoshi sighs since he could adjust it since he needed a mirror to do so. He looked at his mechanical clock which was the last item. It was 9:30 o'clock as the arms of the clock read. He smiled. He loved his machines. He puts the item into one of his bags and zips everything up. He checks everything, and once done he smiles. "Well Pikachu, this is it. Our first ever trip into a new world. I wonder what it'll be like. We've never been outside of Kanto before." Satoshi admitted. He soon clutches his right arm. The Pikachu cheers in excitement. Satoshi smiles. Suddenly there was a knock on the door. "Yes?" He asked. Soon it opened revealing Trip and Barry. "Hey Ash." Trip said. Satoshi smiled, he had actually gotten used to the name Ash. "Hey Trip. Hey Barry." Satoshi said. "It's a shame that we aren't in the same group. I was so forwarded to letting you see Empoleon, instead of just describing it to you. I also wished we had more Pokemon. Empoleon is probably very lonely since he couldn't get out of his ball." Trip said. Satoshi nodded. The boys only had one Pokemon each. "Well, hopefully in Kalos we can be together." Satoshi said. The others nodded. "Well it looks like you're all packed up." Trip commented. Satoshi nodded. "Well, so are we. Man it's great to be all done with packing." Barry said. Satoshi smiled.

Soon a whistle shrieked. "That's the whistle that we're reaching dry land. Everything will be going soon." Satoshi said. Trip and Barry nodded. "The ship will be checked in and reported for food and other stuff. They're going to check everyone in the crew for 'unwanted people'. They're still looking for the killer. They know that it's not one of the people who paid for a ticket since they already checked the records so now they're checking their men." Trip said. "Do you know who did it Satoshi, I heard from your records that you were a 'master of deduction' or something like that." Trip said. Satoshi frowned. "Yes, yes I was. But how did you get into my records?" Satoshi asked. "My parents did it. They were worried when they read the name Jekyll." Trip said. Satoshi sighed. "Well okay." Satoshi said. "Um...what's a master of deduction?" Barry asked. Satoshi smiled. "It means I can solve mysteries with ease. I can solve a mystery in 10 to 30 minutes. They were always a breeze for me. I sometimes wished I was a detective because it would allow me to do all the things I love. Science, Reasoning, Machines, and Pokemon." Satoshi admitted. "But you said your books were all adventures books that were for your medical study, so how do you know about mysteries?" Barry asked. Satoshi smiled. "Simple, I file all mysteries as adventure books. Because to me, all mysteries are just adventures but in a bit of a reverse order. 'Regular' adventure goes forward and leads you to an ending. While 'Mysteries' is the ending but you're trying to figure out how it all began and how it all went. Although some detectives are idiots who don't know what's right in front of them." Satoshi said, angry. He soon shocked his head. "Anyways, we're about to dock, so let's do some work." Satoshi said. The others nodded. Soon three sailor men come into the boy's room. "Oh, hello sailors. What are you doing here?" Satoshi said as the three boys saluted to the sailors. "We were told that you were one of the passengers who had heavy and fragile equipment to carry. Is this true?" One of them asked. Satoshi nodded. "Yes. It's over there." Satoshi admitted. Two of the men soon walked into the room.

"We're here to carry all of these things and the other clothes which your servants left us to the charade you were already assigned for." The head man said as the other sailors grabbed two bags. "Assigned for? Um...okay. Just be careful since there are glass in one of the bags." Satoshi said, hiding the fact that he was angry. Soon the man guy comes in as the other two leave with the bags. Satoshi and his friends got out of the way by getting out of the room. As the men got the boy's stuff, the three friends began to talk out in the hall. "A preordered charade, so I guess you're parents were the one for this organization of the group." Barry said. Satoshi nodded in anger. "Remember, in your father's letter about his friend, this prearrangement is obviously for this friend who is in the castle." Trip said. Satoshi sighed. "Yes, yes. Of course. It's just a shame that this prearrangement accidentally splits me off from you guys." He said. The others nodded. After a while, the ship stopped and the place rocked a little bit. "Well, we've landed. It'll be nice to see what London is all about." Trip said. Satoshi nodded. "Man Camelot is so weird, it has regions but all the regions are for one country and act like pieces of a whole. This is so different from Sinnoh, Kanto, or any other part of Japan." Barry said. The others nodded. "Well, goodbye. See ya in three months." Barry said as he puts his right hand out. Satoshi puts his right hand out too. "Goodbye. I'll miss you. Hopefully I can make more friends." Satoshi said. Pikachu agrees. Trip puts his left hand over their hands. "Me too. Three months is quite long. But know this. I will be reading the newspapers and if 'Satoshi Jekyll' is in there and it's negative and it's you who did it, then you're in trouble." Trip said. Satoshi sweats. "Yes. I understand." Satoshi said. Soon they raise their hands in unison. "I promise to remember you." They all yelled as their hands stretched for the sky. After a while, everyone began to leave the ship. They walk down gang planks from the top of the ship to the ground. Satoshi was walking down the planks with Pikachu on his shoulders as he looked around the area. It was a fair sized town town with shops booths, an inn, people all around in odd looking clothes, and three gates that lead to the main roads. Satoshi soon hears odd noises coming from the streets but couldn't understand where it was coming from.

After a while, Satoshi finished walks down the plank, walked up to team two's charades and sees professor Birch in front of a few other people who Satoshi didn't recognized. Birch was talking to them, but what it was about, Satoshi was sadly too late know about. The professor soon turned to the crowd. He soon noticed the vampire. "Oh hello Satoshi. I've been told that you have your own charade. It's that nice." Birch said. Satoshi nodded. He looked at the red ones. All of them were large with sleek edges and gold colored outlining. The creatures that carried the charades were new to him. They were brown, they resembled Rapidashs but without the horns, and they had hair instead of fire. Satoshi and Pikachu were at awe with them. "Um, what are these creatures?" Satoshi asked. "These are horses. Normal type Pokemon. The people of Camelot, or to coin the term, British, don't really like Pokemon and only use normal types for their everyday needs. They are really scared of the magical creatures." Birch said. Satoshi nodded. "So which charade is mine?" Satoshi asked. "It's the large one over there." Birch said as he points to it. Satoshi looks at it, and is embarrassed. The thing was bright red with golden edgings, rubies encrusted in the edgings, it was big enough to hold 4 people, and two 'horses' pulled the thing. Satoshi blushed. "Is that really the thing I'm going in?" He asked as he sweated. Birch nodded. The vampire sighs in defeat. "So who's accompanying me on the trip?" Satoshi asked. "3 boys. The Jefferson boys, but they're dead, and a boy named Russel Parker." Birch said as he checked his notes. Satoshi sighed. Suddenly a man came up to Birch. "Um...sir...what are going to do with the Jefferson's seats?" A sailor asked. Birch frowned. "I don't know. Satoshi, why don't you choose someone." Birch said. Satoshi felt his body freak. "W-what!? ME! But I can't chose anyone. I only know Trip and Barry. I don't know anyone else." Satoshi said. Birch sighs. "Oh well." He said. He soon sees two boys walking besides each other. They looked very friendly towards each other.

One was a young boy of 16, had medium size blonde hair with a mullet, sharp blue eyes, wore a red jacket, a white shirt, blue pants, and black shoes. This boy was kind of short and his friend was medium height. The boy next to him was slightly older at an age of 17. He had a single colored black shirt under a fighter jacket, white pants, brown spiky hair, brown eyes, and brown shoes. "Hey, you two! Are you in group 2?" Birch asked. They nodded. "Well good news for you, your going to ride in this big charade." Birch said. The two boys look at the big thing and became supper excited. "Really!?" They asked in glee. Birch nodded. They smiled and rush towards the charade. Soon another boy came down. The boy had smooth medium size red hair that covers his ears, cold yellow eyes, wore a thick brown jacket, brown pants, brown shoes, and had a yellow headband. "Hello Russel. Glad to see you. You're going to be in this charade." Prof. Birch said. Russel smiled. Soon he walks to the charade and gets in. Satoshi knew it was his turn to go in. The vampire enters the charade and sits on the right side of the back choc. The choc itself was red with nice cushy seats. The two boys from earlier was on the other side of the choc, the brown hair boy was in front of him, the blonde hair boy was at the left, and the Parker guy was to Satoshi's left. After a few minutes or so, the charade began to move. The boy hair boy looked at the blonde boy next to him. "So Markham, how's the family? Did you get a letter back yet, or do we have to wait another month or so?" The brown haired boy asked his friend. "Yes Dylan, I did get a letter back from my folks, and they're very worried about me and the crew of the ship. If those madmen who impersonated Brandy and those other sailors are still around, they might get one of us in trouble. I...I can't go back home now, especially after my village spent so much money to send me on this trip in the first place." Markham said, fear in his voice. Satoshi looks at the blonde, his mouth watering inside from the 'delicious' emotion the boy was emitting. Dylan notices the strange look in the vampire's eyes. "Hey, are you okay?" the boy asked. Satoshi nodded.

"Y-yeah. Just a little hungry, didn't have a full breakfast meal. Plus I'm a bit sad that I've been separated from Barry and Trip." The vampire lied. "Oh, your that guy who freaked out a few weeks ago, okay." Dylan said. Satoshi nodded although he was embarrassed that he was only know for that. He turns to the boy that was next to him. "Anyways, while we're here in this charade. Hi. I'm Satoshi Jekyll, what's your name?" The boy asked the other teens. The red hair boy next to Satoshi suddenly smiled. "Jekyll? That means you're apart of Kanto's greatest doctors. Wow, that's so cool." Markham said. Satoshi nodded. "Yes, yes. I am. But what about you guys?" Satoshi asked. "I'm Markham Ignus from Orren, and this is my friend Dylan Kull from Almia. Although I have no idea who the guy next to you is." Markham said. "Well, if you want to know who I am, I'm Russel Parker from Jhoto. And I'm surprised that you, Satoshi, didn't noticed me earlier, we've worked in the Boiler room together and we share similar 'hobbies'." Russel said. Satoshi raised an eyebrow. "So you like science, mysteries, and the violin as well?" The boy asked. The boy shocked his head. "No, I'm more of a Pokemon trainer and my parents are butchers." Russel said. "I kind of wish I was a trainer too. But I have to keep the family business alive. Plus it's the only way for me to do any science works." Satoshi confessed. Dylan smiled. "Man, you sure have a lot of hobbies Jekyll: Science, Medicine, Machinery, Music, Pokemon, and Traveling. You sure you can deal with all of that? You'll be a very busy guy and if you don't specialize in at least one area. And if you don't do that then you'll have too much work to do that you won't be able to do anything. Maybe if you were a detective, but not a doctor." Dylan confessed. Satoshi nodded. 'He's right, I do have a lot of work in front of me, plus no one except Barry and Trip know about my long term goal of splitting the human mind. Even with an immortal life I can't handle all of that together. *Sigh* Which means I'll have to drop something off now so I can learn more about it when I'm much, much older. But what? I know it'll have to be the traveling part, but what else? Should I drop my love of machines, or my love of Pokemon? I know I can't drop my psychology work. I...I can't loss that. It's the only thing that will end my nightmare. But my stupid parents won't let me drop the human doctor. UGH!' Satoshi growls in anger. The others noticed this.

"But hey, if you do want to take all those fields, that's your right." Markham said. Satoshi soon noticed the kindness in his voice and their eyes. "Oh...s-sorry. I didn't noticed I growled outside of my thoughts. But your right. I have been focusing on too many things. Although the violin thing is only a hobby. I don't plan on making that anything bigger. But I am just trying to find the right path for me that would fit with my parents wishes of me becoming a human doctor. Although I wish I wasn't forced into the role and just decided it on my own." Satoshi confessed. The others smiled. "Well, at least we'll figure things out on this trip." Dylan said. Satoshi smiled. He looked out the window and saw that they were many yards out of town now, but looked like they were still in the middle of the country. "This is going to be a long ride. That's for sure." Satoshi said as he looked out of the window. Pikachu nods. The others nodded. "So what should we talk about while we drive to Andover?" Russel asked. "Well, let's talk about that murders on the Canal and those two boy's death. I find it all so strange that they happened so long after we left Kanto. It's like they've been waiting for the ship to reach any country that wasn't in japan. I mean we were only a few weeks away from the canal, so they would know about the docks." Dylan said. Satoshi gulped. "Oh, that. Yeah, it's very strange. But I doubt anyone will find them though, since they could disclosed themselves as anyone they want." Satoshi said, trying to hide the fear in his voice. Markham nodded. "Yeah, but they were able to get a guy into trouble. I don't want that to happen to another guy." Dylan said. "So, how would any of you guys find out who it was?" "I don't know." The two boys said. Satoshi smiled. "Well, if I was them, I look at the crime seen, look at the bodies, and the blood covered clothes. I'd look at the rooms and see if there was any hair or item left behind. Then I use my own...hehe...methods of deduction and figure out the crook and have him or here in jail in 20 minutes flat. The detectives are just incompetent." Satoshi said, upset. The other boy's were impressed.

"So, what's your idea of justice?" Dylan asked. Satoshi smiled. "Ah justice, it's been quite a while since I thought of this subject. I'm a big fan of it, although I really do not like how society that corrupted it. Justice is stopping bad people from hurting other people, and makings sure the poor and down trading have their day. But all of High society think of it is a way of keeping the poor down and to make sure their terrible ways are kept in check. *Grrr* I hate how boring high society is and how they don't know how to have fun. I especially don't like how Queen Cynthia is seems to be doing nothing to stop it." Satoshi said, angry at the queen of Japan. "Satoshi, don't be mad at her, she's been very busy, she is also the champion of Sinnoh, and that job is very time consuming. Hopefully lords of the castle are helping out." Markham said. Satoshi sighed. "Yes. Your right. She is busy." Satoshi said. He looks into Markham's eyes. They shined as he smiled. Satoshi felt his heart beating fast. "So, what are we going to do while in Camelot?" Dylan asked. "Well, I'm going to train my Pokemon, capture a local Pokemon here, and do the daily courses of work. I don't have that much on my plate," Russel said. "I'm going to hang around, look at the mechanics of the place, and look for any news on the flying machines. I don't have anything else other than hanging around with Markham," Dylan said. "And I'm going to be working with the local doctors to help become one myself. My village will be so happy when that day happens," Markham said. Satoshi felt his heart beat faster. 'T-this boy has the same idea of medicine as me. Wh-what's going on with me?...M-my heart is beating fast. It...It feels just like when I was around Delia. But...but this can't be right. J-just calm down. I-I'm fine.' Satoshi thought. Markham notices this. "Hey, are you okay?" Markham asked. "Um...y-yeah. I'm fine," Satoshi admitted, "I'm also going to work with the doctors, learn a bit more about the land, and do some chemical medical work." "So your going to be a 'drug' doctor?" Dylan asked. "Well technically all doctors use drugs be it for something minor or big, and yes I am. I'm also going into psychology to help ease the patients and help them learn what their problems are." Satoshi said.

'Although the main reason is to prefect my theory, but I don't want to tell them about it.' Satoshi thought to himself. "Cool. Although, my village calls it Herbal medicines instead of drugs. It's much more nice sounding." Markham said. Satoshi nodded. "You focus more on the raw elements while I focus more on the chemicals plants, bacteria, and other creatures emitted. Plus there are even many chemicals not made by living creatures, so it's all very complicated." Satoshi admitted. The others nodded. The boy look out the charade to see that they were nearing the end of the country hike. Pikachu climbs onto Satoshi's lap. The charade was in a village with tons of people with brown, red, and yellow hair. They kind of looked very similar. Satoshi puts his ears to the glass and he hears the strange sounds again in the busy streets. "What is that sound?" Satoshi asked. The others look at him. "What sound?" Parker asked. "I don't know. All I do know is that ever since we entered this country." Satoshi said. The others had surprised. "Oh! I think what you're hearing is the langue of the British. They call it English. Many people who took part of the Opium war said that Camelot, Esperanto, and many other Countries have their own words and ways of speaking, but instead of having accents, they're langue is something we can't possibly understand unless we spent many years learning it. If we talk to them, they would have no idea what we're talking about, and if they spoke, we would have no idea what they are saying." Park said. Satoshi was surprised. "Wow. I never really knew about that. I never learned about other countries outside of Japan. I guess I've been ignorant to the rest of the world." Satoshi said. The other nodded. "By the way, is this Andover?" The blonde asked. "I don't know." The boys all said. "Jinx!" They soon laughed at the jinx. After that was done, Satoshi looked at the sky. "From my calculations, it is 12:00 pm, aka noon." Satoshi said as looks at the sun. "Whoa, you can calculate the sun's position at this angle. That's so cool" Markham said. Satoshi laughs and blushes. "I also noticed that your Pikachu is never in it's Pokeball." Parker said. Satoshi nodded. "Yeah, Pikachu doesn't like being in there. But then again, I doubt I would either. I kind want to know what makes the other Pokemon not resist like Pikachu." Satoshi said in curiosity.

"I studied the Pokeball Pikachu came in, but because I haven't seen the manual to one, I don't know if it's working at 100% or not," Satoshi admitted. "Maybe I can take a look at it." Dylan said. Satoshi nodded. They sigh as the charade kept moving. Satoshi and the other soon got bored and began asking about their pasts. "Okay, I'll go first. I was born on Friday July 13th 1853, my family was already rich and famous by that point and everyone was happy that I was borne. My father and mother said that they took me everywhere when I was a baby as publicity and to make me used the high life. As I grew, I was given many privet teachers and a nanny. They taught me a lot of things, and during my very young youth I met my best friends back at home. I was taught sword fighting, boxing, swimming, food placement, dinner ware placement and how to use it, how to be a host, calculations/math, politics, the violin, science, machines, and medicine at an early age of 8. I also had to go to a lot of Party dinners and small events. Never went to a ball or any of the big and probably more fun events though. I was told not to talk to anyone in case I said anything stupid. The parties were boring, I felt like I was asleep haft the time, the woman were shrill little ninnies who while complementing me also clinched my checks, and I felt alone since my family's party meetings didn't feature any of my friends. However dad punished me every time I was out of bounds, and the punishments were harsh. He lashed me with his belt, wiped me with that BLOODY CANE, and he punched and kicked me multiple times. He called me an idiot, a psycho, a monster, and many other insults. I...I was so helpless against it. He...he never said he was sorry for going overboard or anything, just saying that I wasn't strong enough to be a man...I...I...I JUST WANTED HIM TO STOP HURTING ME AND LOVE ME LIKE A REAL FATHER!" Satoshi said as tears entered his eyes. He soon crimes in agony. The boys held the boy's shoulder and Pikachu was sad at the boy. After a while, Satoshi stopped crying and everyone soon continued their stories. Parker was a butcher boy and was happy with his family. Dylan was born to karate teacher, he was inspired to be a pilot by the Wright brothers, he lived in the middle class, and has a fiance back home. Markham was a boy born in an impoverish village, he hopes to be a doctor to help his family, and he is single. Satoshi smiled at the news.

After telling all their stories, the boys looked out the windows. It was now about 4 o'clock in the afternoon and the charade was in the middle of the country again. "Okay, so that wasn't Andover. Okay. Now what do we talk about as we wait for the charade to arrive at the town?" Markham said in annoyance. "Well...I could tell you this theory I've been developing for some time. But I'm not sure if the world's ready to hear it. And if anyone has anything else to say, I'd gladly put it aside." Satoshi said, feeling nervous. "Nope. I've got nothing." Dylan said. "Me neither." Parker said. "I want to know about this theory of yours. It sounds so interesting." Markham said with enthusiasm. Satoshi sighs. 'Just stay calm and keep all rage against people away.' Satoshi thought. "Well, I theorize that there are two sides to people. The Intelligent side and the moral side. The Intelligent side is smart, chaotic, has no emotions, uncontrollable, is where our animal instincts are, and where all our bad thoughts come from. Meanwhile, the moral side is where are emotions come from, where our good thoughts come from, is where our humanity is, where the power of god is, and holds a lot of wisdom and love. If I found a way to separate the two, then the good can be able to do anything without being held back by the pain of wickedness, and the wickedness can go somewhere far away from the good and would be able to be free from guilt and the pressures of society. It can live like it should as an animal and be happy as it is. Many insane asylum patients would be able to go free into the world and we wouldn't have to worry about people going mad. If we split man and the world, then everything will become happy and wonderful for both sides. And all the diseased part of the world and the mind will eventually go away at one point and all that would be left is the good." Satoshi said with a wide smile on him. The other boys looked at him with awe and disturbance. "That's an...interesting theory for sure." Dylan said. Satoshi frowned. "So you don't think that it'll work. Just listen to my idea. A world without pain, a world without the horrors of murders, terrorists, and a world without all those terrible things is a good world. I know it is. It's a place where justice is supreme and no criminals are to be found." Satoshi said with a wicked smile as the thought of this perfect world filled his mind. He longed for said world to exist.

"Yeah, that does sound nice. A perfect utopia without all the nasty things, and you won't be getting rid of freedom or emotions. That sounds really nice. But...I doubt such a world could ever exist. Humans are dual nature and there is no way of undoing it." Parker said. Satoshi frowned. "There is a way. I KNOW IT! We just haven't figured how. Well I will find out how and will split the mind and make humans perfect." Satoshi said. "But...what if you fail. What if the bad part comes out and it's free. You've just created a monster out of the man who you experimented on. And if that kind of monster is released, I doubt there would be anyway to stop it other than killing it. And how do you plan to put the two minds into different bodies." Markham asked. Satoshi growls. "I knew you guys wouldn't understand. I'm still developing everything and haven't figured out everything. But I will make my dream come true. Even if I have to use myself!" Satoshi others and Pikachu were taken back by this comment. "Wowowow. Calm down. Don't do that. Doom always happen to a guy when he does experiments on himself." Dylan said. Satoshi breaths heavily, and after awhile he nodded. "Y-yeah your right. I have heard the tales. And the men who do experiments with little or no funding are branded as 'mad men'. I know many of these 'mad men' but I am most found of Maxwell Frankenstein, his work fascinate me even though I am never going into the field of bodies like he is. I prefer my work to be on living things even if it's a bit harsh." Satoshi said. The others nodded. Satoshi looked out the window and sees that they were now entering another town and it was around 5 pm. Satoshi smiles. "Well, it looks like we're about the reach the village. This place looks like a lake side town and I remember the town was obviously near a large lake, and in the vast distance I saw bits of the lake." Satoshi said. The boys looked outside. The village was designed like a spiderweb with a big circle in the middle, and it was on the foot of a small hill near the large lake of Hyrule. The beach had bright white sand. The only road that didn't have many little roads on it was the road to the large castle at the top of the hill.

Satoshi and the others oohed at the strange houses they saw. They had see a few of them when they looked at the village they passed before. The houses were a bit more rustic and a bit more mid-evil. Satoshi remembered about 20-ish years ago, before the Opium war, America forced Camelot to open it's borders and trade with the eastern countries so it was okay that the place was still old fashioned. He even heard that the regions used to fight each other even more than the regions in Japan. The charade soon entered the city circle. There was a pub, city hall, 6 smaller streets full of houses, houses in front of the streets, and many shops. In the middle of circle was a statue of a man who the boys didn't know. Satoshi looked at roads, mesmerizing the areas, and making sure he knew the layout of the land. Once the couch was out of the town square and on it's way to the castle, Satoshi looked out at Markham with hungry eyes. Something about Markham was just so beautiful about him. He didn't really noticed it when he first looked at the boy but now with them having many, many hours together, he really liked the boy. Markham was a bit shy like him, and he was nice and good hearted. 'If only my heart was less wicked, then maybe I can be like Markham.' Satoshi sighs. "Well we're almost at the castle." Satoshi said. The other boys nodded. "Man, it's quite big." Dylan said. The building was 4 stories high and about 100 squared yards wide and long. It was divided into two parts, the top part being 1/4 smaller than the bottom. The front yard was big and a few charades were already there. After a while, their charade stopped and parked. "Okay, everyone get off." The charade man said. The boys smiled and gets out of the wagon. The boys looked at the large castle in awe as they walked up to then entrance. They soon noticed Professor Birch was already there with the men from earlier. "Hello boys. Welcome to the castle. This is our interrupter Julian McFly, but thankfully the owners of the castle and it's staff already know Japanese, so Julian is here to help get used to the other people in the village." Birch said. The interpreter was a short pudgy man with beetle like eyes, blue eyes, and red hair and a mustache that was connected to his hair.

"Please wait in the main hall until all of the people in our group arrives. I'll be waiting here for the other kids." Professor Birch said. The boys nodded. The other men nodded as well. Soon the boy's entered the building. They were imminently in the main hall with a long red carpet, shields on the walls, and suits of armor in rows. The boys 'oohed' at the black bricks and the lighting of the candles. "This place is very rustic." Dylan said. The others agreed. They look forward and see a small group of people in front of a man who was standing on the second layer of the room where the stairs were. The stair case was covered in the red carpet, and it divided into two sections, one going left and the other going right. Satoshi noticed that there was a black thing around the man's body like an aura. Satoshi soon realized the man was a vampire. He was around his mid-40's with long smooth white hair that covered his ears, red eyes, wore a red thin jacket with a fluffy shirt under it, puffy sleeves, black pants, and a black cape. 'This guy kind of looks kind of like a female. I think I heard a term for such men, a yeah, a be-she. Such an odd term.' Satoshi thought to himself. "Hello there, Sir Satoshi, I see Doctor's Letter was correct about your arrival." The man said out loud. Satoshi blushes as all the people already there turn to him. "Um...hello there friend of my dad." Satoshi said as he turned away in embarrassment. Markham smiled. "I am Lord Noriko Demenico, ruler of this castle and the mayor of Andover. I hope you and the others like it here." The man said. Soon a boy with short black hair with a white strip down it like a skunk came from the left stairs. The boy was of 5 years, had red eyes like the lord, and wore very fancy clothes on. It was a small red shirt, brown shorts, and black shoes. "Oh, hello father, it looks like everyone hasn't come in yet. Sorry that I came in too early." The boy said. Satoshi looked at the boy, expecting the father to yell at him. To say he was an idiot and to go to his room. But none of that happened. "Everyone this is my younger son, Andre Demenico, and his older brother Vince Demenico will come down quickly." The lord said. Satoshi looked at the boy in shock. 'So that's what it's like to not have my father. Someone who cared for you, someone who loved you.' Satoshi soon held his right arm. He felt the nagging feeling of loneliness in his soul again. He wanted to be loved, adored, and cherished like the little boy. He wanted that love. His stomach soon growled. 'Oh yeah, I didn't have any breakfast or lunch.' Satoshi thought to himself and then sighed. He looked at Markham and blushed.

After awhile, all of the passengers and the crew men who were supervising them had came into the room and Vince came down the right stairs. Vince had white hair with a black stripe, had blue eyes, wore the same kind of clothes as his father, and was very hansom. Satoshi felt jealous at the man, but didn't know why. Was it because he was hansom? Naugh that can't be it, everyone at home knew he was hansom too, so it can't be that. Satoshi soon shocked his head. Now wasn't the time to think about it as Noriko welcomed the guests. "Welcome everyone. I am lord Noriko Demenico, ruler of this castle and the mayor of Andover. I hope you and the others like it here. I was at first a bit resident to have the passengers of the foreign country of Japan especially after the Opium war 5 years ago in Esperanto, but the crew convinced me and others to take part of the whole event of this voyage. I will help you learn the history and legends of the land, the langue of English, and help you learn more of the 'Pokemon' that live near this area. There's a cave a few yards to the west of us that we'll be exploring later on after we learn about the lake Pokemon here. However it isn't just learning about Pokemon and lore, there will be a few days off once a month to make sure you are relaxing and having fun. I hope all of you enjoy your stay here." Lord Demenico said. "And before we move on, there are a few rules that you need to know. Rule 1, no one is allowed to leave the castle after dark. After all, there are some dangerous Pokemon out there and I don't want any trouble makers doing something they shouldn't be doing. Rule 2, no one is allowed to have sex or have a relationship with one of the village girls. We don't want babies or the such to worry about while on this trip. Rule 3, no one is allowed to get involved with the politics of this land or try to make 'democracy' happen. Camelot is fine as it is. And Rule 4, no one is allowed to go into the bedrooms of the bottom floor, they are for the 'special' people who we know about. If anyone breaks these laws then there will be major consequences to happen, one of these will be being expelled from the area and being sent back home. Also I have the world famous Doctor Strix Xathar in the castle as a guest. I hope Mr. Jekyll, doctor Xathar, and I will have enough time to talk about his father's letter after this evenings lecture and dinner." The others nodded. "Another note is that everyone will have their own rooms. My castle is big enough and your group is only of 40 people that this can happen. Hopefully with the larger space, people will be able do the things they couldn't do with company around." Demenico said.

"Alright, the time is 6 o'clock, it is time for dinner." Vince said. The others nodded. The lords of the castle soon escorted everyone into the dinning hall where all the food was prepared. Satoshi stomach growls as the boys and girls were arranged from richest to poorest with the richest sitting near the lord and his sons, while the poorest like Markham were way in the back. Satoshi was seated down right next to the young son Andre. The lord himself was at the end part of the table, and Doctor Xathar was next to Vince. Doctor Xathar was a tall dark hair man with black auburn eyes like Satoshi. He wore white robes and belts on him and looked like he came out of the feudal era of Japan. A woman of 20 give Satoshi a large cup of red wine along with the others, but Satoshi noticed that he saw little black marks floating up from time to time. Pikachu covered it's nose in discuss. He looks at the boy who was drinking milk. 'Poor Andre, if I'm right about Noriko, then he's going to grow up to be just like me and the other vampires. A monster. And look at those innocent eyes, he probably has no idea of what he will become. Just like me.' Satoshi thought. "Sir Satoshi, is everything alright?" Noriko asked. Satoshi soon looks up and nods happily, trying to hide his sadness for the boy. Satoshi soon drank a bit of the wine and suddenly he felt and odd feeling in his thorough. Then he has visions of a Mexican man day laborer. "¿Eh? ?Qué fue todo eso?" (Huh? What was that all about?) Satoshi asked, but soon noticed that he spoke Spanish. Pikachu tilted his head in confusion. The vampire soon coughed. "Whoops, pardon my Spanish, the wine tasted off to me. I also wanted to impress your lord-ness with my langue knowledge." Satoshi lied, he didn't know a thing of Spanish, but somehow he instantly knew it. 'This must be blood, that's how I know the langues so thoroughly now even though I never heard of it before. Man that's amazing. It also shows that the ship or this guy know that I'm a vampire. Great, just great.' "Well it was nice." The lord said. Satoshi smiled. Soon everyone began eating. Doctor Xathar and Demenico talked about how they hoped that everyone would behave and no one would break the rules. They soon talked about politics. Satoshi sighs as he eats properly. He wished he could dig out and not worry about who sees him, but the rigorous training by his parents couldn't make him forget.

Once dinner was done, everyone began unpacking their stuff and handing it over to Demenico's staff who knew what rooms they were assigned too. After everything was unpacked, Demenico gave everyone a map of where they are, what the rooms they were located were, what the other rooms contained, and what the hallways were like. He soon gave Satoshi a map. The vampire looks down and sees that he was in the basement. 'So he does know I'm special. Okay. Well at least I know where to go.' The boy thought. Soon he noticed Markham. "Oh, hey Markham. Good to see you." Satoshi said with enthusiasm. Markham looks at him in confusion. "Huh? Oh Satoshi, hello. Um...why are you still talking to me?" Markham asked. Satoshi rubs the back of his head. "well, you, Dylan, and Russel are the only ones that I know on this trip and I like you. I hope we can become friends." Satoshi said. Markham smiled. "Sure, and since we both want to be doctors, we can help each other out. Especially you and your money." Markham admitted. Satoshi nodded. He had brought a lot of money with him but since he was on a ship he didn't have any reason to use it. "And be glad everyone uses Pokins as currency because dealing with that kind of work would be really annoying." Satoshi said. Markham nodded. "What room are you in?" Markham asked. "I'm in the third room on the bottom level. I'm rich so people think I'm super special. And while that's true, I kind of feel embarrassed about it since people will think I'm weird." Satoshi said. "I don't think you're weird." Markham said. Satoshi smiled. "Anyways, I'm on the second floor in this is area near the liberty. That's pretty cool." Markham said. Satoshi agrees. "Well see you latter." Markham said. Satoshi agrees and sees his friend leave. After a while, the boy was alone. He holds himself. He soon notice the two adults coming up to him. "So Satoshi, we got a letter from your father. He says that your in the transitioning stage of becoming a full fledged Vampire. Is this true?" Demenico asked. Satoshi nodded. "Your correct. But that doesn't mean I have to become a monster. I've been learning to cope with my new way of living, and hopefully you'll teach me to behave and act like a vampire who's also acts like a human. I don't want to be caught." Satoshi said. "Yes, no one wants that to happen. Now with that out of the way. We have some talking to do." Xathar said. Satoshi yawns along with Pikachu. "Sorry, but can it wait until morning. Me and Pikachu are really tired." Satoshi said as he feels his pet falling asleep. The two adults sigh. "Fine." Demenico said. Satoshi smiled.

He uses his map to walk to the big staircase and go under it which was were the stairs that went downwards where. Satoshi then turns right, walks a few meters and reaches the door of his room. It big, and a lot nicer looking than the plain wooden doors the others had. This door was red with long cross strips of metal in it and blue glass in the middle of the crosses. "Wow," Satoshi said, then he opens the door. The room he was in was huge with 4 cabinets leaning against the wall that was in front of him. A large sturdy wooden table with mini drawers and his chemistry set was already on top of it was to the right of him. And the big space to the left of him was red roses, his favorite kind of flowers, in a large circle around a large black, sleek coffin with his family's symbol on it in gold. The coffin was being held by a small white table. Satoshi looked at the room, it was like his own personal Dracula area. The boy was happy and disturbed since the place was fabulously designed, but there was still a giant coffin in the left side of the room. Satoshi noticed that the wall behind the coffin was a wall of books. His books. It kind of felt like home. Satoshi shocked his head. Satoshi walks over to the coffin and sees a little bed for Pikachu on the thickness, stumpy-est, and longest of the the cabinets. Pikachu gets off the boy's shoulder and goes to the bed. It soon falls asleep. Satoshi smiles. "Good night Pikachu. Have good dreams. I hope I do as well." The vampire said, a little dreadful since he hadn't have the best of nights. He sighs and opens the coffin. It was laced with thick, rich, purple leather and looked like it belonged to royalty. Satoshi chuckles. 'Man, they sure are pampering me. I wonder why? Is my family really that famous? I never believed it before, but then again I don't believe Kanto is that special at all except for Professor Oak and his research. I can't remember anything good and memorable about it other than it's my home. Hopefully with this kind of outsiders perspective, maybe I can learn what's so special about it.' Satoshi thought. He soon yawned. The teen soon entered the coffin, shuts it and falls asleep. Never feeling awkward that he was sleeping in a coffin.

...

Satoshi looked at Markham with hungry eyes and a wicked smile on his face. The boys were in a black room with only one door that was chained up. Satoshi had the key sticking out of his pockets. The boy pushes the key down his pants pocket as he closes in to his target. The vampire was about to do the usual the thing in this kind of dream and rip the other boy's clothes off, beating him up so he couldn't move and speak, and then getting his own clothes off. But suddenly the vampire touched the boy's chin. Satoshi smirked as Markham cringes in fear. The other boy had handcuffs on so he couldn't use his hands to escape, which was odd since the dreams didn't feature handcuffs before. Satoshi soon laughs. "Oh Markham, I usually never speak to one of my 'lovers'. But you, YOU are different. Maybe it's the patheticness of your life, or maybe it's that twinkle in your eyes whenever you're happy. But whatever it is, I just love it." Satoshi said, his voice sounding oddly younger than normal. "W-why are you talking to me then?" Markham asked. "Oh, because I want to, not only to hear your fine voice but to also inform my moral form of what we truly feel. I'm surprised that the moral side of me hasn't realized earlier about our 'true feelings' about love. After all, we are tired of women hurting us so why not men. Mom, Delia, and all the girls that ignored us in the ship and in private school are not worth us. But men, men who aren't daddy, they never betrayed us, they never truly hurt us. Sure they try, but they usually say their sorry and make it up in the end. *hehe* That is unless we get to them first. This is what I want to show to my morel side. I was at first not sure of these feelings myself, but once I taught Averian the true meaning of pain, it all made sense." Satoshi said. "Y-you are crazy. Morel and Intelligent side? Just say you have two personalities already and stop pretending like you're still the same guy as when you're awake. What you've done is nothing what the other Satoshi would do." Markham said. The vampire growls and slaps the boy. "Shut up, boy! You know nothing about me!" Satoshi yelled. Suddenly a purple glow came from his right arm. Satoshi holds it in pain. "N-no, your not Markham, your my fears." Satoshi said.

"How do you know? All you know about me is my appearance and my back story. You know nothing about the real me either." Markham said. Satoshi growled. "Shut up. Please. I...I just want you to love me." He soon began to cry. "A-All my life, I've been ignored, I've been mistreated by my family, I've been hated upon by my peers. I...I just want someone to love me. I...I almost had it too. If... If only she didn't leave me. If only she didn't leave me alone and left me as I am. I wanted her for so long, and now SHE'S GONE FOREVER! Gone...gone..." The boy said, his emotions fluctuating between anger and sadness as he cried. "Why can't you move on? Why can't you just learn to control yourself?" Markham asked. Satoshi looked at his hands. "B-because I don't remember control. It...It may sound so funny to you. But I feel like that word was lost to me a long, long time ago. I bet even before I was born." Satoshi said. Markham just sat there. "Markham...please...don't leave me. I...I can't have another wedge in my heart again. You have to be the 'one'...I...I just know it. And...And if you aren't. If...If you can't love me." Satoshi said as his eyes sharpen. "Then ...Then...*Hahahahaha* I'll make you pay. Yes! PAY! I...I will make everyone pay. Someday. SOMEDAY! But first I have to keep focused." Satoshi yelled. Markham shocked back. "If...If I don't 'love' you, how will you make me pay?" Markham asked. Satoshi laughed. "Oh, I won't ruin it for you. Let's just say, you won't be staying around the ship for quite some time. Hehehehehe." Soon he grabs the boy's clothes. "Now. Let's have some fun..." Satoshi said as he wickedly smiled. Soon the screen turns to black as Markham screams in pain and Satoshi rapes him.
ch. 7 Castle Viper Hollow

It has been about 2 weeks since the research ship had sailed off from the Canal and Curitiba. Satoshi had been doing a lot of studying in his room on the books, trying his best to learn how to control himself, and see if there were anything he could use to make a potion that would make him and the world more perfect, but so far he had come up with nothing. He got all of his dirty clothes back all cleaned. However, Satoshi had to keep up with his work as a boiler controller, talking with his friends, and keeping up his Pokemon doctor training with his Pikachu, helping it when it got sick, and cleaning up it's messes. He was glad to be back working with machines, the feel of oil and the cracking of machines was oddly relaxing to the boy. Plus Satoshi was doing a lot more interactions with the gang that Barry hanged around during lunch and his free time and learned of all the locations of the ship so he wouldn't get lost, and he got re-antiquated him with the weird numbering on the doors. And how the third floor had rooms valves that help the boiler room. Not to mention the fact that about haft of the rooms had three layer bunk beds since there were a lot of people. He quickly learned of a stadium like room on the main deck level which was one level above the level Satoshi was living in, where large events of some sort would happen when they finally reached land. Satoshi also had Pikachu go out and exercise with him and eating in the cafeteria. Though the food was good, Satoshi would always have it with a bit of blood from his bottles, which were described as wine. Satoshi wished that it was actually wine since he missed the taste so much. Usually the bottles were emptied out, but that was probably because he was only using the small bottles for now. Though Satoshi couldn't feel the fear he enjoyed when he drained the host. Satoshi also got equated some more with Bellrock and the kitchen crew and learned more about cooking. But the kitchen soon realized that the boy was bad a making tea since he added blood to the drinks, so they made Barry the one to bring tea to the boy whenever he needed it, which was every morning. Unfortunately, it was the getting harder and harder for Satoshi to wake up in a good mode ever since the boy kept having bad dreams about him either being exactly like the movie version Dracula, which he learned all about from the sailors, and attacking random villages, or attacking and raping several boys the teen had seen while he was on the ship which was really weird since he had seen plenty of women. His tea was the only thing that made him feel more happy and alive after the nightmares.

Today, Satoshi was waiting for his morning tea. He was very aggravated since he had another nightmare, and his hair reached midway down his back. His sideburns also have grown, but Satoshi didn't really care about. He did have to shave now since he had a five o'clock shadow now. Satoshi sighed as he touches the fuzz on his face. 'Shavings going to be a pain without a reflection!' Satoshi yelled, he was dentally not happy. Pikachu was now skinny like and more tall. It looked at his master in worry. Ever since his master desired to learn to be more 'perfect' he was feeling more cold and distant to not only his friends, but the little mouse as well. Pikachu nuzzles up to his master. He wanted him to genially smile again. It had been so long since the last one. Satoshi looks the mouse in irritation. Satoshi held his head, trying to keep himself from yelling at his mouse friend. He needed something to calm himself down. Suddenly a knock was heard from the door. "WHAT IS IT!?" Satoshi screams, his eyes were now ruby red. "I-it's me... Barry... Satoshi... your getting more and more scary the more you mature. Anyways, I have your tea." Barry said, scarred of his friend. Satoshi smiles. Pikachu smiles at this, it wasn't the crazy smile his master usually had on him. Satoshi opens the door. "Th...thanks." The vampire said as he grabs the cup from his friend's hands. Soon he drank his tea. He sighs in relief. "Ah, yes. That hit the spot. Sorry about yelling at you earlier. I'm not myself until I have a cup. I think it's my intelligent side in activation," Satoshi said, noticing his bad moods in the morning. Barry laughs. "No problem." The yellow blonde said. He walks into Satoshi's room, there were a lot of books on the spare bed. "So these are the books you've been studying on." Barry said. Satoshi nodded. "I'm almost haft way done with my collection of medical books," Satoshi said. He looks at his medical bag. He sees that Barry had also brought him some breakfast. "Oh, here's breakfast... Anyways the guys are wondering why you're acting so weird. You seem much more cold, especially in the mornings." Barry said, he was worried too. Satoshi grabbed the plate and sits on the floor, he goes his medical bag and sees that all of his small bottles were now gone. "I just wanted to say that since you've been so cold to me," Barry said, kind of glum. Satoshi felt sorry.

"Sorry about all of that, mate. But I've been to busy studying to really notice." Satoshi said. He didn't want to tell the real reason to his friend, which was the guilt he was feeling for the kills he made. He didn't want Barry learn that he was the real killer of the two vampires. Barry smiles. "Now would you be a dear and clean of my small bottles?" Satoshi asked as he gets out a medium sized bottle from his bag, which he had put in the bag yesterday. He soon points to his medical bag which was full of empty bottles. Barry nodded. "Of course. Besides glass bottles aren't that though on blood like your clothes are. Some people asked why there was blood on them, but I was able to give them some good answers. Man it was hard getting all that grim, blood, and smell of," Barry said as he remembers how the washing workers complained about Satoshi's dirty clothes. Satoshi smiles. Barry looks at Satoshi's movement. "I haven't noticed until now, but your a right handed guy," Barry said. "Yeah. Well, that's not really important. So I never told you. Besides, why would knowing what my useful hand mean anything," Satoshi said. "It isn't, but your right arm is also where your birthmark is." Barry said. Satoshi nodded. Satoshi soon ate his eggs and ham, and drank all of the blood. "Man that's good." Satoshi said. He really like the taste of blood. Then he became sad. "So good that it almost makes me forget where it came from," The vampire said as he looked at his empty plate in sadness. Barry soon gets out a small mirror. "Hey, here's mirror, I got it from my friends. They said you can have it. Besides you look a bit messy." Barry said. Satoshi puts down his plate and looks at the mirror. However he had no reflection, but oddly his clothes were fully visible. Satoshi looked sad. "Remember, I'm a Vampire. I don't have reflections. The only thing we learn is that my clothes don't disappear." Satoshi said, annoyed. Barry soon remembers as he puts it back in his pants. "Whoops. Sorry. But that's an interesting trivia." He said. Satoshi sighs. He grabs a book he had already started reading earlier. Barry grabs the plate. "Maybe your so jaded in the morning is because of how you sleep. Sleeping upside down does sound uncomfortable." Barry said. Satoshi looks at him, then nods.

"Well, the ship will be soon reaching London. Satoshi, this is your chance. Now you can go outside and learn more about the world, maybe find an older vampire that will teach you the ways of being a better vampire. And we can do that together." Barry said with a large smile, he puts his arm around Satoshi in a friendly manner. Satoshi smiles. Pikachu holds onto his master's shoulder as the teen gets up. "Yes. I believe this is a bond that will not break." Satoshi said. Suddenly a horn was blown; however, it was different than any other horns currently heard here. "Attention passengers. We'll be arriving in Camelot within a few hours. Please come to the main holding area on level 0 for group instructions. Repeat," A speaker voice said. It soon repeated itself. "Group instructions?" Jekyll said in confusion as the message was repeated. He never heard of that before, but that's probably cause he didn't read that much of the panelist, and it never came up when he talked with Barry since they were talking about their past friends and their family. Satoshi looks at Barry. "OH! Those things, I remember those group things being mentioned in the panelist. According to them, the ship will be divided into three teams. One will deal with one part of the area, one will deal with the big city that we land in, and another goes to another area. But I haven't been told what the order of the group is and where they go other than the fact that one group has to stay in the city to study how human and Pokemon relationships have grown." Barry said. This caused the vampire to worry. "But what if you and I aren't in the same group? What should I do?" Satoshi said, scarred. Pikachu was worried as well. Barry smiled. "Don't worry, even if that does happen, this would be the perfect time for you to met new people and become friends with them." Barry said. Satoshi looks at him. "Do you think they'll accept me?" He asked. Barry nodded. "Of course, you're a great guy. Just don't mention the vampire thing, they might not be ready." Barry said. Satoshi nodded. "Well we better get going, don't want to be late." Barry said. The vampire agrees. Soon Barry and Satoshi walked out of his cabin and walked over to the hall where the vampire sees the Caption along with a few scientists.

The vampire recognized the head scientists, they were Prof. Juniper, Prof. Birch, and Prof. Rowan. Behind them was a large sheet behind them and a projector in the middle. Satoshi was pleasantly surprised; he didn't know they were on the ship. 'Man I need to talk to more people on this ship so I won't be surprised by things like this. Though Barry should have told me about them.' The boy thought to himself, a little angry at Barry. He soon noticed that he lost Barry and sighs. He looks at Pikachu, who was excited. 'Well this was bond to happen. This place is crowded even thought there's only 90-ish people on board who aren't the main crew.' The boy thought. He soon stopped and looked at the adults. "Okay, let's have a roll call to make sure everyone is present." Prof. Birch said. Soon Prof. Rowan began calling out people's names. Satoshi sighed. Even with 90-ish people this was going to take a long time. After the long, boring roll call count, things finally got underway. "Hello everyone. I hoped everyone could make it to this session. With the roll call out of the way, let me introduce you to London and areas of Camelot where will send you for three months." Drake said as the slider was turned on. The first slide was of the island nation of Camelot which was divided into 9 sections. It was kind of shaped like a long log with pieces jagging out. London was in the south east part of the land and had a whole section to itself, but it didn't look like there was anyway for the ship to land in that harbor with the trigonometry they have. "The ship will dock at the dock port city of Halesworth with is in the West Sussex Region. First we will send the first group to the seashore town of Crystal Cove in the Hampshire region, the second team will go to the lake town Andover and live in the Castle Viper Hallow in Berkshire, and the third group will be London in Greater London. Crystal Cove is a small town that team one will be exploring along the lives of salt water Pokemon, Flying Pokemon, how Pokemon can be used to help us create new things, and the miracle of breeding.

"Viper Hollow is a large castle in the middle of the country a few miles from London that team two will be exploring along with the small town at the foot of the base of the castle, they will learn about cave Pokemon, Lake Pokemon, Forrest Pokemon, and the lore of this land. And Team three will be in London where they'll learn the connections between humans and Pokemon, Electrical and Mechanical Pokemon, and Contests." Drake said as he pressed a button that changed the slides which fallowed the man's speech. Satoshi smiled, this will be interesting. Then the man pushed the button again. It soon showed three circles and the Japanese's Alphabet. The circles were of the area they were standing in. Satoshi forgot that the nation of which all of the regions the people come from was called Japan. "In team one people with the last names A-H and will have Professor Juniper looking over them. In team two people with the last names I-Q and will have Professor Birch looking over them. And in team three people with the last names R-Z and will have Professor Rowan looking over them." Satoshi felt his jaw drop. He couldn't believe it, he and Barry wouldn't be in the same team. Satoshi soon remembers that Trip's last name was Summers so it meant Trip wouldn't be with him as well. 'Drat. I'll be all alone now, which means I'll have to make new friends in this group. This makes me wish my last name was Hyde or something like it so I wouldn't be separated from my friends. Hopefully one of Barry's sailor friends will be with me on the trip.' Satoshi thought as he forgot what the sailors he and Barry hang around were named. He sighed. 'Some friend I am for forgetting their names.' The boy thought, angry at himself. He was especially angry at himself for not making friends while working in the boiler room. "Now the groups will be divided up into the groups here, and when we reach the port, they will be divided up into four for the charades." Drake said. Soon the people began moving into the group. Satoshi waited in his area, waiting for the place to clear so he could properly get into his group, only moving so another person could go to where they were going. Satoshi soon moved to the area on the map where I-Q was as the area began to clear.

Satoshi was in the near edge of the circle of people, all of which he didn't recognized. Satoshi felt his anger rising. None of the sailors he knew would be with him. He looked at the other groups with jealously. He soon shocked his head. 'No, I'm fine. I can handle this. *sigh* It'll be like Privet school again. Hopefully I can make more friends than at there.' He thought to himself, but the nagging thoughts of his story still haunted in his mind. He still couldn't understand it and whether it was real or not. The scientists first came up to their respected group. Birch smiled. "So, is everyone with the last names I-Q here?" He asked. Everyone agreed. He looks at the other groups. He waited a little while encase someone accidentally got mixed up. Thankfully that didn't happen. He smiled. "Well, now with everything cleared up, I need to tell you that the charades that will take us to the castle are colored Red while the charades that will take people to London is Blue, and the charades that will take people to Crystal Cove is yellow. You will be waiting in front of your colored charades while everything is being packed up. When everything is ready, I'll divide you into groups of 6 or 4. Does everyone understand." Birch asked. Everyone yells yes. He smiles. "Okay, you better get packing. You don't want to leave anything behind, it maybe important to you." He said. Everyone agrees. Soon everyone said goodbye. Satoshi walked back to his cabin. He looked at his room, thinking where to begin with his packing. Pikachu looked at him in confusion. "Pikapi?" It asked. The boy was being very quite ever since the groups were announced. "Oh, it's nothing Pikachu. It's just we have to make new friends, that's all." He said to the mouse on his shoulder. Pikachu nodded. "Well, we'd better get packing." He said. The mouse nodded. The boy soon grabbed the bags under his beds and puts them on his old bed. He grabs the books that were on the other bed and began to put them in there. He soon grabbed the calender he forgot to put back and looks at the date. It was the 20th of September, 1970. If he still had school, he would be back at it by now. He grabs his pen from his notes section and marks the date with a circle and puts the letter "L" on the white area.

After he did that, put it back in his bag, and sealed up his ink. He cleans his pen, caps it, and puts it, his science notebook, and the ink pot into his bag. He looks through the bag to make sure everything was in there. Once done, he seals it up. He grabs the other bag, it had all of this brown vest combo. He smiles as he remembers all the clothes he remembered getting back. He soon shocked his head. Now wasn't the time to think of it. He noticed that all his other clothes weren't in his room at all, so he asked the crew and they said they were in a auburn cubit. Satoshi sighs as he remembers this little fiasco. Hopefully he'll have all those clothes when they reached land. Satoshi packed away all of Pikachu's food, and his chemicals. Once everything in his room except for his clock was packed, the boy sighed. He soon remembered he only wears his goggles when he's doing work and when he first came to the ship. He grabs his goggles from his bag and puts it on his head. Satoshi sighs since he could adjust it since he needed a mirror to do so. He looked at his mechanical clock which was the last item. It was 9:30 o'clock as the arms of the clock read. He smiled. He loved his machines. He puts the item into one of his bags and zips everything up. He checks everything, and once done he smiles. "Well Pikachu, this is it. Our first ever trip into a new world. I wonder what it'll be like. We've never been outside of Kanto before." Satoshi admitted. He soon clutches his right arm. The Pikachu cheers in excitement. Satoshi smiles. Suddenly there was a knock on the door. "Yes?" He asked. Soon it opened revealing Trip and Barry. "Hey Ash." Trip said. Satoshi smiled, he had actually gotten used to the name Ash. "Hey Trip. Hey Barry." Satoshi said. "It's a shame that we aren't in the same group. I was so forwarded to letting you see Empoleon, instead of just describing it to you. I also wished we had more Pokemon. Empoleon is probably very lonely since he couldn't get out of his ball." Trip said. Satoshi nodded. The boys only had one Pokemon each. "Well, hopefully in Kalos we can be together." Satoshi said. The others nodded. "Well it looks like you're all packed up." Trip commented. Satoshi nodded. "Well, so are we. Man it's great to be all done with packing." Barry said. Satoshi smiled.

Soon a whistle shrieked. "That's the whistle that we're reaching dry land. Everything will be going soon." Satoshi said. Trip and Barry nodded. "The ship will be checked in and reported for food and other stuff. They're going to check everyone in the crew for 'unwanted people'. They're still looking for the killer. They know that it's not one of the people who paid for a ticket since they already checked the records so now they're checking their men." Trip said. "Do you know who did it Satoshi, I heard from your records that you were a 'master of deduction' or something like that." Trip said. Satoshi frowned. "Yes, yes I was. But how did you get into my records?" Satoshi asked. "My parents did it. They were worried when they read the name Jekyll." Trip said. Satoshi sighed. "Well okay." Satoshi said. "Um...what's a master of deduction?" Barry asked. Satoshi smiled. "It means I can solve mysteries with ease. I can solve a mystery in 10 to 30 minutes. They were always a breeze for me. I sometimes wished I was a detective because it would allow me to do all the things I love. Science, Reasoning, Machines, and Pokemon." Satoshi admitted. "But you said your books were all adventures books that were for your medical study, so how do you know about mysteries?" Barry asked. Satoshi smiled. "Simple, I file all mysteries as adventure books. Because to me, all mysteries are just adventures but in a bit of a reverse order. 'Regular' adventure goes forward and leads you to an ending. While 'Mysteries' is the ending but you're trying to figure out how it all began and how it all went. Although some detectives are idiots who don't know what's right in front of them." Satoshi said, angry. He soon shocked his head. "Anyways, we're about to dock, so let's do some work." Satoshi said. The others nodded. Soon three sailor men come into the boy's room. "Oh, hello sailors. What are you doing here?" Satoshi said as the three boys saluted to the sailors. "We were told that you were one of the passengers who had heavy and fragile equipment to carry. Is this true?" One of them asked. Satoshi nodded. "Yes. It's over there." Satoshi admitted. Two of the men soon walked into the room.

"We're here to carry all of these things and the other clothes which your servants left us to the charade you were already assigned for." The head man said as the other sailors grabbed two bags. "Assigned for? Um...okay. Just be careful since there are glass in one of the bags." Satoshi said, hiding the fact that he was angry. Soon the man guy comes in as the other two leave with the bags. Satoshi and his friends got out of the way by getting out of the room. As the men got the boy's stuff, the three friends began to talk out in the hall. "A preordered charade, so I guess you're parents were the one for this organization of the group." Barry said. Satoshi nodded in anger. "Remember, in your father's letter about his friend, this prearrangement is obviously for this friend who is in the castle." Trip said. Satoshi sighed. "Yes, yes. Of course. It's just a shame that this prearrangement accidentally splits me off from you guys." He said. The others nodded. After a while, the ship stopped and the place rocked a little bit. "Well, we've landed. It'll be nice to see what London is all about." Trip said. Satoshi nodded. "Man Camelot is so weird, it has regions but all the regions are for one country and act like pieces of a whole. This is so different from Sinnoh, Kanto, or any other part of Japan." Barry said. The others nodded. "Well, goodbye. See ya in three months." Barry said as he puts his right hand out. Satoshi puts his right hand out too. "Goodbye. I'll miss you. Hopefully I can make more friends." Satoshi said. Pikachu agrees. Trip puts his left hand over their hands. "Me too. Three months is quite long. But know this. I will be reading the newspapers and if 'Satoshi Jekyll' is in there and it's negative and it's you who did it, then you're in trouble." Trip said. Satoshi sweats. "Yes. I understand." Satoshi said. Soon they raise their hands in unison. "I promise to remember you." They all yelled as their hands stretched for the sky. After a while, everyone began to leave the ship. They walk down gang planks from the top of the ship to the ground. Satoshi was walking down the planks with Pikachu on his shoulders as he looked around the area. It was a fair sized town town with shops booths, an inn, people all around in odd looking clothes, and three gates that lead to the main roads. Satoshi soon hears odd noises coming from the streets but couldn't understand where it was coming from.

After a while, Satoshi finished walks down the plank, walked up to team two's charades and sees professor Birch in front of a few other people who Satoshi didn't recognized. Birch was talking to them, but what it was about, Satoshi was sadly too late know about. The professor soon turned to the crowd. He soon noticed the vampire. "Oh hello Satoshi. I've been told that you have your own charade. It's that nice." Birch said. Satoshi nodded. He looked at the red ones. All of them were large with sleek edges and gold colored outlining. The creatures that carried the charades were new to him. They were brown, they resembled Rapidashs but without the horns, and they had hair instead of fire. Satoshi and Pikachu were at awe with them. "Um, what are these creatures?" Satoshi asked. "These are horses. Normal type Pokemon. The people of Camelot, or to coin the term, British, don't really like Pokemon and only use normal types for their everyday needs. They are really scared of the magical creatures." Birch said. Satoshi nodded. "So which charade is mine?" Satoshi asked. "It's the large one over there." Birch said as he points to it. Satoshi looks at it, and is embarrassed. The thing was bright red with golden edgings, rubies encrusted in the edgings, it was big enough to hold 4 people, and two 'horses' pulled the thing. Satoshi blushed. "Is that really the thing I'm going in?" He asked as he sweated. Birch nodded. The vampire sighs in defeat. "So who's accompanying me on the trip?" Satoshi asked. "3 boys. The Jefferson boys, but they're dead, and a boy named Russel Parker." Birch said as he checked his notes. Satoshi sighed. Suddenly a man came up to Birch. "Um...sir...what are going to do with the Jefferson's seats?" A sailor asked. Birch frowned. "I don't know. Satoshi, why don't you choose someone." Birch said. Satoshi felt his body freak. "W-what!? ME! But I can't chose anyone. I only know Trip and Barry. I don't know anyone else." Satoshi said. Birch sighs. "Oh well." He said. He soon sees two boys walking besides each other. They looked very friendly towards each other.

One was a young boy of 16, had medium size blonde hair with a mullet, sharp blue eyes, wore a red jacket, a white shirt, blue pants, and black shoes. This boy was kind of short and his friend was medium height. The boy next to him was slightly older at an age of 17. He had a single colored black shirt under a fighter jacket, white pants, brown spiky hair, brown eyes, and brown shoes. "Hey, you two! Are you in group 2?" Birch asked. They nodded. "Well good news for you, your going to ride in this big charade." Birch said. The two boys look at the big thing and became supper excited. "Really!?" They asked in glee. Birch nodded. They smiled and rush towards the charade. Soon another boy came down. The boy had smooth medium size red hair that covers his ears, cold yellow eyes, wore a thick brown jacket, brown pants, brown shoes, and had a yellow headband. "Hello Russel. Glad to see you. You're going to be in this charade." Prof. Birch said. Russel smiled. Soon he walks to the charade and gets in. Satoshi knew it was his turn to go in. The vampire enters the charade and sits on the right side of the back choc. The choc itself was red with nice cushy seats. The two boys from earlier was on the other side of the choc, the brown hair boy was in front of him, the blonde hair boy was at the left, and the Parker guy was to Satoshi's left. After a few minutes or so, the charade began to move. The boy hair boy looked at the blonde boy next to him. "So Markham, how's the family? Did you get a letter back yet, or do we have to wait another month or so?" The brown haired boy asked his friend. "Yes Dylan, I did get a letter back from my folks, and they're very worried about me and the crew of the ship. If those madmen who impersonated Brandy and those other sailors are still around, they might get one of us in trouble. I...I can't go back home now, especially after my village spent so much money to send me on this trip in the first place." Markham said, fear in his voice. Satoshi looks at the blonde, his mouth watering inside from the 'delicious' emotion the boy was emitting. Dylan notices the strange look in the vampire's eyes. "Hey, are you okay?" the boy asked. Satoshi nodded.

"Y-yeah. Just a little hungry, didn't have a full breakfast meal. Plus I'm a bit sad that I've been separated from Barry and Trip." The vampire lied. "Oh, your that guy who freaked out a few weeks ago, okay." Dylan said. Satoshi nodded although he was embarrassed that he was only know for that. He turns to the boy that was next to him. "Anyways, while we're here in this charade. Hi. I'm Satoshi Jekyll, what's your name?" The boy asked the other teens. The red hair boy next to Satoshi suddenly smiled. "Jekyll? That means you're apart of Kanto's greatest doctors. Wow, that's so cool." Markham said. Satoshi nodded. "Yes, yes. I am. But what about you guys?" Satoshi asked. "I'm Markham Ignus from Orren, and this is my friend Dylan Kull from Almia. Although I have no idea who the guy next to you is." Markham said. "Well, if you want to know who I am, I'm Russel Parker from Jhoto. And I'm surprised that you, Satoshi, didn't noticed me earlier, we've worked in the Boiler room together and we share similar 'hobbies'." Russel said. Satoshi raised an eyebrow. "So you like science, mysteries, and the violin as well?" The boy asked. The boy shocked his head. "No, I'm more of a Pokemon trainer and my parents are butchers." Russel said. "I kind of wish I was a trainer too. But I have to keep the family business alive. Plus it's the only way for me to do any science works." Satoshi confessed. Dylan smiled. "Man, you sure have a lot of hobbies Jekyll: Science, Medicine, Machinery, Music, Pokemon, and Traveling. You sure you can deal with all of that? You'll be a very busy guy and if you don't specialize in at least one area. And if you don't do that then you'll have too much work to do that you won't be able to do anything. Maybe if you were a detective, but not a doctor." Dylan confessed. Satoshi nodded. 'He's right, I do have a lot of work in front of me, plus no one except Barry and Trip know about my long term goal of splitting the human mind. Even with an immortal life I can't handle all of that together. *Sigh* Which means I'll have to drop something off now so I can learn more about it when I'm much, much older. But what? I know it'll have to be the traveling part, but what else? Should I drop my love of machines, or my love of Pokemon? I know I can't drop my psychology work. I...I can't loss that. It's the only thing that will end my nightmare. But my stupid parents won't let me drop the human doctor. UGH!' Satoshi growls in anger. The others noticed this.

"But hey, if you do want to take all those fields, that's your right." Markham said. Satoshi soon noticed the kindness in his voice and their eyes. "Oh...s-sorry. I didn't noticed I growled outside of my thoughts. But your right. I have been focusing on too many things. Although the violin thing is only a hobby. I don't plan on making that anything bigger. But I am just trying to find the right path for me that would fit with my parents wishes of me becoming a human doctor. Although I wish I wasn't forced into the role and just decided it on my own." Satoshi confessed. The others smiled. "Well, at least we'll figure things out on this trip." Dylan said. Satoshi smiled. He looked out the window and saw that they were many yards out of town now, but looked like they were still in the middle of the country. "This is going to be a long ride. That's for sure." Satoshi said as he looked out of the window. Pikachu nods. The others nodded. "So what should we talk about while we drive to Andover?" Russel asked. "Well, let's talk about that murders on the Canal and those two boy's death. I find it all so strange that they happened so long after we left Kanto. It's like they've been waiting for the ship to reach any country that wasn't in japan. I mean we were only a few weeks away from the canal, so they would know about the docks." Dylan said. Satoshi gulped. "Oh, that. Yeah, it's very strange. But I doubt anyone will find them though, since they could disclosed themselves as anyone they want." Satoshi said, trying to hide the fear in his voice. Markham nodded. "Yeah, but they were able to get a guy into trouble. I don't want that to happen to another guy." Dylan said. "So, how would any of you guys find out who it was?" "I don't know." The two boys said. Satoshi smiled. "Well, if I was them, I look at the crime seen, look at the bodies, and the blood covered clothes. I'd look at the rooms and see if there was any hair or item left behind. Then I use my own...hehe...methods of deduction and figure out the crook and have him or here in jail in 20 minutes flat. The detectives are just incompetent." Satoshi said, upset. The other boy's were impressed.

"So, what's your idea of justice?" Dylan asked. Satoshi smiled. "Ah justice, it's been quite a while since I thought of this subject. I'm a big fan of it, although I really do not like how society that corrupted it. Justice is stopping bad people from hurting other people, and makings sure the poor and down trading have their day. But all of High society think of it is a way of keeping the poor down and to make sure their terrible ways are kept in check. *Grrr* I hate how boring high society is and how they don't know how to have fun. I especially don't like how Queen Cynthia is seems to be doing nothing to stop it." Satoshi said, angry at the queen of Japan. "Satoshi, don't be mad at her, she's been very busy, she is also the champion of Sinnoh, and that job is very time consuming. Hopefully lords of the castle are helping out." Markham said. Satoshi sighed. "Yes. Your right. She is busy." Satoshi said. He looks into Markham's eyes. They shined as he smiled. Satoshi felt his heart beating fast. "So, what are we going to do while in Camelot?" Dylan asked. "Well, I'm going to train my Pokemon, capture a local Pokemon here, and do the daily courses of work. I don't have that much on my plate," Russel said. "I'm going to hang around, look at the mechanics of the place, and look for any news on the flying machines. I don't have anything else other than hanging around with Markham," Dylan said. "And I'm going to be working with the local doctors to help become one myself. My village will be so happy when that day happens," Markham said. Satoshi felt his heart beat faster. 'T-this boy has the same idea of medicine as me. Wh-what's going on with me?...M-my heart is beating fast. It...It feels just like when I was around Delia. But...but this can't be right. J-just calm down. I-I'm fine.' Satoshi thought. Markham notices this. "Hey, are you okay?" Markham asked. "Um...y-yeah. I'm fine," Satoshi admitted, "I'm also going to work with the doctors, learn a bit more about the land, and do some chemical medical work." "So your going to be a 'drug' doctor?" Dylan asked. "Well technically all doctors use drugs be it for something minor or big, and yes I am. I'm also going into psychology to help ease the patients and help them learn what their problems are." Satoshi said.

'Although the main reason is to prefect my theory, but I don't want to tell them about it.' Satoshi thought to himself. "Cool. Although, my village calls it Herbal medicines instead of drugs. It's much more nice sounding." Markham said. Satoshi nodded. "You focus more on the raw elements while I focus more on the chemicals plants, bacteria, and other creatures emitted. Plus there are even many chemicals not made by living creatures, so it's all very complicated." Satoshi admitted. The others nodded. The boy look out the charade to see that they were nearing the end of the country hike. Pikachu climbs onto Satoshi's lap. The charade was in a village with tons of people with brown, red, and yellow hair. They kind of looked very similar. Satoshi puts his ears to the glass and he hears the strange sounds again in the busy streets. "What is that sound?" Satoshi asked. The others look at him. "What sound?" Parker asked. "I don't know. All I do know is that ever since we entered this country." Satoshi said. The others had surprised. "Oh! I think what you're hearing is the langue of the British. They call it English. Many people who took part of the Opium war said that Camelot, Esperanto, and many other Countries have their own words and ways of speaking, but instead of having accents, they're langue is something we can't possibly understand unless we spent many years learning it. If we talk to them, they would have no idea what we're talking about, and if they spoke, we would have no idea what they are saying." Park said. Satoshi was surprised. "Wow. I never really knew about that. I never learned about other countries outside of Japan. I guess I've been ignorant to the rest of the world." Satoshi said. The other nodded. "By the way, is this Andover?" The blonde asked. "I don't know." The boys all said. "Jinx!" They soon laughed at the jinx. After that was done, Satoshi looked at the sky. "From my calculations, it is 12:00 pm, aka noon." Satoshi said as looks at the sun. "Whoa, you can calculate the sun's position at this angle. That's so cool" Markham said. Satoshi laughs and blushes. "I also noticed that your Pikachu is never in it's Pokeball." Parker said. Satoshi nodded. "Yeah, Pikachu doesn't like being in there. But then again, I doubt I would either. I kind want to know what makes the other Pokemon not resist like Pikachu." Satoshi said in curiosity.

"I studied the Pokeball Pikachu came in, but because I haven't seen the manual to one, I don't know if it's working at 100% or not," Satoshi admitted. "Maybe I can take a look at it." Dylan said. Satoshi nodded. They sigh as the charade kept moving. Satoshi and the other soon got bored and began asking about their pasts. "Okay, I'll go first. I was born on Friday July 13th 1853, my family was already rich and famous by that point and everyone was happy that I was borne. My father and mother said that they took me everywhere when I was a baby as publicity and to make me used the high life. As I grew, I was given many privet teachers and a nanny. They taught me a lot of things, and during my very young youth I met my best friends back at home. I was taught sword fighting, boxing, swimming, food placement, dinner ware placement and how to use it, how to be a host, calculations/math, politics, the violin, science, machines, and medicine at an early age of 8. I also had to go to a lot of Party dinners and small events. Never went to a ball or any of the big and probably more fun events though. I was told not to talk to anyone in case I said anything stupid. The parties were boring, I felt like I was asleep haft the time, the woman were shrill little ninnies who while complementing me also clinched my checks, and I felt alone since my family's party meetings didn't feature any of my friends. However dad punished me every time I was out of bounds, and the punishments were harsh. He lashed me with his belt, wiped me with that BLOODY CANE, and he punched and kicked me multiple times. He called me an idiot, a psycho, a monster, and many other insults. I...I was so helpless against it. He...he never said he was sorry for going overboard or anything, just saying that I wasn't strong enough to be a man...I...I...I JUST WANTED HIM TO STOP HURTING ME AND LOVE ME LIKE A REAL FATHER!" Satoshi said as tears entered his eyes. He soon crimes in agony. The boys held the boy's shoulder and Pikachu was sad at the boy. After a while, Satoshi stopped crying and everyone soon continued their stories. Parker was a butcher boy and was happy with his family. Dylan was born to karate teacher, he was inspired to be a pilot by the Wright brothers, he lived in the middle class, and has a fiance back home. Markham was a boy born in an impoverish village, he hopes to be a doctor to help his family, and he is single. Satoshi smiled at the news.

After telling all their stories, the boys looked out the windows. It was now about 4 o'clock in the afternoon and the charade was in the middle of the country again. "Okay, so that wasn't Andover. Okay. Now what do we talk about as we wait for the charade to arrive at the town?" Markham said in annoyance. "Well...I could tell you this theory I've been developing for some time. But I'm not sure if the world's ready to hear it. And if anyone has anything else to say, I'd gladly put it aside." Satoshi said, feeling nervous. "Nope. I've got nothing." Dylan said. "Me neither." Parker said. "I want to know about this theory of yours. It sounds so interesting." Markham said with enthusiasm. Satoshi sighs. 'Just stay calm and keep all rage against people away.' Satoshi thought. "Well, I theorize that there are two sides to people. The Intelligent side and the moral side. The Intelligent side is smart, chaotic, has no emotions, uncontrollable, is where our animal instincts are, and where all our bad thoughts come from. Meanwhile, the moral side is where are emotions come from, where our good thoughts come from, is where our humanity is, where the power of god is, and holds a lot of wisdom and love. If I found a way to separate the two, then the good can be able to do anything without being held back by the pain of wickedness, and the wickedness can go somewhere far away from the good and would be able to be free from guilt and the pressures of society. It can live like it should as an animal and be happy as it is. Many insane asylum patients would be able to go free into the world and we wouldn't have to worry about people going mad. If we split man and the world, then everything will become happy and wonderful for both sides. And all the diseased part of the world and the mind will eventually go away at one point and all that would be left is the good." Satoshi said with a wide smile on him. The other boys looked at him with awe and disturbance. "That's an...interesting theory for sure." Dylan said. Satoshi frowned. "So you don't think that it'll work. Just listen to my idea. A world without pain, a world without the horrors of murders, terrorists, and a world without all those terrible things is a good world. I know it is. It's a place where justice is supreme and no criminals are to be found." Satoshi said with a wicked smile as the thought of this perfect world filled his mind. He longed for said world to exist.

"Yeah, that does sound nice. A perfect utopia without all the nasty things, and you won't be getting rid of freedom or emotions. That sounds really nice. But...I doubt such a world could ever exist. Humans are dual nature and there is no way of undoing it." Parker said. Satoshi frowned. "There is a way. I KNOW IT! We just haven't figured how. Well I will find out how and will split the mind and make humans perfect." Satoshi said. "But...what if you fail. What if the bad part comes out and it's free. You've just created a monster out of the man who you experimented on. And if that kind of monster is released, I doubt there would be anyway to stop it other than killing it. And how do you plan to put the two minds into different bodies." Markham asked. Satoshi growls. "I knew you guys wouldn't understand. I'm still developing everything and haven't figured out everything. But I will make my dream come true. Even if I have to use myself!" Satoshi others and Pikachu were taken back by this comment. "Wowowow. Calm down. Don't do that. Doom always happen to a guy when he does experiments on himself." Dylan said. Satoshi breaths heavily, and after awhile he nodded. "Y-yeah your right. I have heard the tales. And the men who do experiments with little or no funding are branded as 'mad men'. I know many of these 'mad men' but I am most found of Maxwell Frankenstein, his work fascinate me even though I am never going into the field of bodies like he is. I prefer my work to be on living things even if it's a bit harsh." Satoshi said. The others nodded. Satoshi looked out the window and sees that they were now entering another town and it was around 5 pm. Satoshi smiles. "Well, it looks like we're about the reach the village. This place looks like a lake side town and I remember the town was obviously near a large lake, and in the vast distance I saw bits of the lake." Satoshi said. The boys looked outside. The village was designed like a spiderweb with a big circle in the middle, and it was on the foot of a small hill near the large lake of Hyrule. The beach had bright white sand. The only road that didn't have many little roads on it was the road to the large castle at the top of the hill.

Satoshi and the others oohed at the strange houses they saw. They had see a few of them when they looked at the village they passed before. The houses were a bit more rustic and a bit more mid-evil. Satoshi remembered about 20-ish years ago, before the Opium war, America forced Camelot to open it's borders and trade with the eastern countries so it was okay that the place was still old fashioned. He even heard that the regions used to fight each other even more than the regions in Japan. The charade soon entered the city circle. There was a pub, city hall, 6 smaller streets full of houses, houses in front of the streets, and many shops. In the middle of circle was a statue of a man who the boys didn't know. Satoshi looked at roads, mesmerizing the areas, and making sure he knew the layout of the land. Once the couch was out of the town square and on it's way to the castle, Satoshi looked out at Markham with hungry eyes. Something about Markham was just so beautiful about him. He didn't really noticed it when he first looked at the boy but now with them having many, many hours together, he really liked the boy. Markham was a bit shy like him, and he was nice and good hearted. 'If only my heart was less wicked, then maybe I can be like Markham.' Satoshi sighs. "Well we're almost at the castle." Satoshi said. The other boys nodded. "Man, it's quite big." Dylan said. The building was 4 stories high and about 100 squared yards wide and long. It was divided into two parts, the top part being 1/4 smaller than the bottom. The front yard was big and a few charades were already there. After a while, their charade stopped and parked. "Okay, everyone get off." The charade man said. The boys smiled and gets out of the wagon. The boys looked at the large castle in awe as they walked up to then entrance. They soon noticed Professor Birch was already there with the men from earlier. "Hello boys. Welcome to the castle. This is our interrupter Julian McFly, but thankfully the owners of the castle and it's staff already know Japanese, so Julian is here to help get used to the other people in the village." Birch said. The interpreter was a short pudgy man with beetle like eyes, blue eyes, and red hair and a mustache that was connected to his hair.

"Please wait in the main hall until all of the people in our group arrives. I'll be waiting here for the other kids." Professor Birch said. The boys nodded. The other men nodded as well. Soon the boy's entered the building. They were imminently in the main hall with a long red carpet, shields on the walls, and suits of armor in rows. The boys 'oohed' at the black bricks and the lighting of the candles. "This place is very rustic." Dylan said. The others agreed. They look forward and see a small group of people in front of a man who was standing on the second layer of the room where the stairs were. The stair case was covered in the red carpet, and it divided into two sections, one going left and the other going right. Satoshi noticed that there was a black thing around the man's body like an aura. Satoshi soon realized the man was a vampire. He was around his mid-40's with long smooth white hair that covered his ears, red eyes, wore a red thin jacket with a fluffy shirt under it, puffy sleeves, black pants, and a black cape. 'This guy kind of looks kind of like a female. I think I heard a term for such men, a yeah, a be-she. Such an odd term.' Satoshi thought to himself. "Hello there, Sir Satoshi, I see Doctor's Letter was correct about your arrival." The man said out loud. Satoshi blushes as all the people already there turn to him. "Um...hello there friend of my dad." Satoshi said as he turned away in embarrassment. Markham smiled. "I am Lord Noriko Demenico, ruler of this castle and the mayor of Andover. I hope you and the others like it here." The man said. Soon a boy with short black hair with a white strip down it like a skunk came from the left stairs. The boy was of 5 years, had red eyes like the lord, and wore very fancy clothes on. It was a small red shirt, brown shorts, and black shoes. "Oh, hello father, it looks like everyone hasn't come in yet. Sorry that I came in too early." The boy said. Satoshi looked at the boy, expecting the father to yell at him. To say he was an idiot and to go to his room. But none of that happened. "Everyone this is my younger son, Andre Demenico, and his older brother Vince Demenico will come down quickly." The lord said. Satoshi looked at the boy in shock. 'So that's what it's like to not have my father. Someone who cared for you, someone who loved you.' Satoshi soon held his right arm. He felt the nagging feeling of loneliness in his soul again. He wanted to be loved, adored, and cherished like the little boy. He wanted that love. His stomach soon growled. 'Oh yeah, I didn't have any breakfast or lunch.' Satoshi thought to himself and then sighed. He looked at Markham and blushed.

After awhile, all of the passengers and the crew men who were supervising them had came into the room and Vince came down the right stairs. Vince had white hair with a black stripe, had blue eyes, wore the same kind of clothes as his father, and was very hansom. Satoshi felt jealous at the man, but didn't know why. Was it because he was hansom? Naugh that can't be it, everyone at home knew he was hansom too, so it can't be that. Satoshi soon shocked his head. Now wasn't the time to think about it as Noriko welcomed the guests. "Welcome everyone. I am lord Noriko Demenico, ruler of this castle and the mayor of Andover. I hope you and the others like it here. I was at first a bit resident to have the passengers of the foreign country of Japan especially after the Opium war 5 years ago in Esperanto, but the crew convinced me and others to take part of the whole event of this voyage. I will help you learn the history and legends of the land, the langue of English, and help you learn more of the 'Pokemon' that live near this area. There's a cave a few yards to the west of us that we'll be exploring later on after we learn about the lake Pokemon here. However it isn't just learning about Pokemon and lore, there will be a few days off once a month to make sure you are relaxing and having fun. I hope all of you enjoy your stay here." Lord Demenico said. "And before we move on, there are a few rules that you need to know. Rule 1, no one is allowed to leave the castle after dark. After all, there are some dangerous Pokemon out there and I don't want any trouble makers doing something they shouldn't be doing. Rule 2, no one is allowed to have sex or have a relationship with one of the village girls. We don't want babies or the such to worry about while on this trip. Rule 3, no one is allowed to get involved with the politics of this land or try to make 'democracy' happen. Camelot is fine as it is. And Rule 4, no one is allowed to go into the bedrooms of the bottom floor, they are for the 'special' people who we know about. If anyone breaks these laws then there will be major consequences to happen, one of these will be being expelled from the area and being sent back home. Also I have the world famous Doctor Strix Xathar in the castle as a guest. I hope Mr. Jekyll, doctor Xathar, and I will have enough time to talk about his father's letter after this evenings lecture and dinner." The others nodded. "Another note is that everyone will have their own rooms. My castle is big enough and your group is only of 40 people that this can happen. Hopefully with the larger space, people will be able do the things they couldn't do with company around." Demenico said.

"Alright, the time is 6 o'clock, it is time for dinner." Vince said. The others nodded. The lords of the castle soon escorted everyone into the dinning hall where all the food was prepared. Satoshi stomach growls as the boys and girls were arranged from richest to poorest with the richest sitting near the lord and his sons, while the poorest like Markham were way in the back. Satoshi was seated down right next to the young son Andre. The lord himself was at the end part of the table, and Doctor Xathar was next to Vince. Doctor Xathar was a tall dark hair man with black auburn eyes like Satoshi. He wore white robes and belts on him and looked like he came out of the feudal era of Japan. A woman of 20 give Satoshi a large cup of red wine along with the others, but Satoshi noticed that he saw little black marks floating up from time to time. Pikachu covered it's nose in discuss. He looks at the boy who was drinking milk. 'Poor Andre, if I'm right about Noriko, then he's going to grow up to be just like me and the other vampires. A monster. And look at those innocent eyes, he probably has no idea of what he will become. Just like me.' Satoshi thought. "Sir Satoshi, is everything alright?" Noriko asked. Satoshi soon looks up and nods happily, trying to hide his sadness for the boy. Satoshi soon drank a bit of the wine and suddenly he felt and odd feeling in his thorough. Then he has visions of a Mexican man day laborer. "¿Eh? ?Qué fue todo eso?" (Huh? What was that all about?) Satoshi asked, but soon noticed that he spoke Spanish. Pikachu tilted his head in confusion. The vampire soon coughed. "Whoops, pardon my Spanish, the wine tasted off to me. I also wanted to impress your lord-ness with my langue knowledge." Satoshi lied, he didn't know a thing of Spanish, but somehow he instantly knew it. 'This must be blood, that's how I know the langues so thoroughly now even though I never heard of it before. Man that's amazing. It also shows that the ship or this guy know that I'm a vampire. Great, just great.' "Well it was nice." The lord said. Satoshi smiled. Soon everyone began eating. Doctor Xathar and Demenico talked about how they hoped that everyone would behave and no one would break the rules. They soon talked about politics. Satoshi sighs as he eats properly. He wished he could dig out and not worry about who sees him, but the rigorous training by his parents couldn't make him forget.

Once dinner was done, everyone began unpacking their stuff and handing it over to Demenico's staff who knew what rooms they were assigned too. After everything was unpacked, Demenico gave everyone a map of where they are, what the rooms they were located were, what the other rooms contained, and what the hallways were like. He soon gave Satoshi a map. The vampire looks down and sees that he was in the basement. 'So he does know I'm special. Okay. Well at least I know where to go.' The boy thought. Soon he noticed Markham. "Oh, hey Markham. Good to see you." Satoshi said with enthusiasm. Markham looks at him in confusion. "Huh? Oh Satoshi, hello. Um...why are you still talking to me?" Markham asked. Satoshi rubs the back of his head. "well, you, Dylan, and Russel are the only ones that I know on this trip and I like you. I hope we can become friends." Satoshi said. Markham smiled. "Sure, and since we both want to be doctors, we can help each other out. Especially you and your money." Markham admitted. Satoshi nodded. He had brought a lot of money with him but since he was on a ship he didn't have any reason to use it. "And be glad everyone uses Pokins as currency because dealing with that kind of work would be really annoying." Satoshi said. Markham nodded. "What room are you in?" Markham asked. "I'm in the third room on the bottom level. I'm rich so people think I'm super special. And while that's true, I kind of feel embarrassed about it since people will think I'm weird." Satoshi said. "I don't think you're weird." Markham said. Satoshi smiled. "Anyways, I'm on the second floor in this is area near the liberty. That's pretty cool." Markham said. Satoshi agrees. "Well see you latter." Markham said. Satoshi agrees and sees his friend leave. After a while, the boy was alone. He holds himself. He soon notice the two adults coming up to him. "So Satoshi, we got a letter from your father. He says that your in the transitioning stage of becoming a full fledged Vampire. Is this true?" Demenico asked. Satoshi nodded. "Your correct. But that doesn't mean I have to become a monster. I've been learning to cope with my new way of living, and hopefully you'll teach me to behave and act like a vampire who's also acts like a human. I don't want to be caught." Satoshi said. "Yes, no one wants that to happen. Now with that out of the way. We have some talking to do." Xathar said. Satoshi yawns along with Pikachu. "Sorry, but can it wait until morning. Me and Pikachu are really tired." Satoshi said as he feels his pet falling asleep. The two adults sigh. "Fine." Demenico said. Satoshi smiled.

He uses his map to walk to the big staircase and go under it which was were the stairs that went downwards where. Satoshi then turns right, walks a few meters and reaches the door of his room. It big, and a lot nicer looking than the plain wooden doors the others had. This door was red with long cross strips of metal in it and blue glass in the middle of the crosses. "Wow," Satoshi said, then he opens the door. The room he was in was huge with 4 cabinets leaning against the wall that was in front of him. A large sturdy wooden table with mini drawers and his chemistry set was already on top of it was to the right of him. And the big space to the left of him was red roses, his favorite kind of flowers, in a large circle around a large black, sleek coffin with his family's symbol on it in gold. The coffin was being held by a small white table. Satoshi looked at the room, it was like his own personal Dracula area. The boy was happy and disturbed since the place was fabulously designed, but there was still a giant coffin in the left side of the room. Satoshi noticed that the wall behind the coffin was a wall of books. His books. It kind of felt like home. Satoshi shocked his head. Satoshi walks over to the coffin and sees a little bed for Pikachu on the thickness, stumpy-est, and longest of the the cabinets. Pikachu gets off the boy's shoulder and goes to the bed. It soon falls asleep. Satoshi smiles. "Good night Pikachu. Have good dreams. I hope I do as well." The vampire said, a little dreadful since he hadn't have the best of nights. He sighs and opens the coffin. It was laced with thick, rich, purple leather and looked like it belonged to royalty. Satoshi chuckles. 'Man, they sure are pampering me. I wonder why? Is my family really that famous? I never believed it before, but then again I don't believe Kanto is that special at all except for Professor Oak and his research. I can't remember anything good and memorable about it other than it's my home. Hopefully with this kind of outsiders perspective, maybe I can learn what's so special about it.' Satoshi thought. He soon yawned. The teen soon entered the coffin, shuts it and falls asleep. Never feeling awkward that he was sleeping in a coffin.

...

Satoshi looked at Markham with hungry eyes and a wicked smile on his face. The boys were in a black room with only one door that was chained up. Satoshi had the key sticking out of his pockets. The boy pushes the key down his pants pocket as he closes in to his target. The vampire was about to do the usual the thing in this kind of dream and rip the other boy's clothes off, beating him up so he couldn't move and speak, and then getting his own clothes off. But suddenly the vampire touched the boy's chin. Satoshi smirked as Markham cringes in fear. The other boy had handcuffs on so he couldn't use his hands to escape, which was odd since the dreams didn't feature handcuffs before. Satoshi soon laughs. "Oh Markham, I usually never speak to one of my 'lovers'. But you, YOU are different. Maybe it's the patheticness of your life, or maybe it's that twinkle in your eyes whenever you're happy. But whatever it is, I just love it." Satoshi said, his voice sounding oddly younger than normal. "W-why are you talking to me then?" Markham asked. "Oh, because I want to, not only to hear your fine voice but to also inform my moral form of what we truly feel. I'm surprised that the moral side of me hasn't realized earlier about our 'true feelings' about love. After all, we are tired of women hurting us so why not men. Mom, Delia, and all the girls that ignored us in the ship and in private school are not worth us. But men, men who aren't daddy, they never betrayed us, they never truly hurt us. Sure they try, but they usually say their sorry and make it up in the end. *hehe* That is unless we get to them first. This is what I want to show to my morel side. I was at first not sure of these feelings myself, but once I taught Averian the true meaning of pain, it all made sense." Satoshi said. "Y-you are crazy. Morel and Intelligent side? Just say you have two personalities already and stop pretending like you're still the same guy as when you're awake. What you've done is nothing what the other Satoshi would do." Markham said. The vampire growls and slaps the boy. "Shut up, boy! You know nothing about me!" Satoshi yelled. Suddenly a purple glow came from his right arm. Satoshi holds it in pain. "N-no, your not Markham, your my fears." Satoshi said.

"How do you know? All you know about me is my appearance and my back story. You know nothing about the real me either." Markham said. Satoshi growled. "Shut up. Please. I...I just want you to love me." He soon began to cry. "A-All my life, I've been ignored, I've been mistreated by my family, I've been hated upon by my peers. I...I just want someone to love me. I...I almost had it too. If... If only she didn't leave me. If only she didn't leave me alone and left me as I am. I wanted her for so long, and now SHE'S GONE FOREVER! Gone...gone..." The boy said, his emotions fluctuating between anger and sadness as he cried. "Why can't you move on? Why can't you just learn to control yourself?" Markham asked. Satoshi looked at his hands. "B-because I don't remember control. It...It may sound so funny to you. But I feel like that word was lost to me a long, long time ago. I bet even before I was born." Satoshi said. Markham just sat there. "Markham...please...don't leave me. I...I can't have another wedge in my heart again. You have to be the 'one'...I...I just know it. And...And if you aren't. If...If you can't love me." Satoshi said as his eyes sharpen. "Then ...Then...*Hahahahaha* I'll make you pay. Yes! PAY! I...I will make everyone pay. Someday. SOMEDAY! But first I have to keep focused." Satoshi yelled. Markham shocked back. "If...If I don't 'love' you, how will you make me pay?" Markham asked. Satoshi laughed. "Oh, I won't ruin it for you. Let's just say, you won't be staying around the ship for quite some time. Hehehehehe." Soon he grabs the boy's clothes. "Now. Let's have some fun..." Satoshi said as he wickedly smiled. Soon the screen turns to black as Markham screams in pain and Satoshi rapes him.

ch. 6 Fear and Confusion
.....
A large monster rapped in a winged cocoon was hanging upside down in a room very similar to Satoshi's room in the ship. The only differences were that everything was in black and white, and the floor, ceiling, and walls were made out of stone. The cocoon soon shocked as the monster soon woke up. It's wings opened up, revealing the bat monster Satoshi turned into. However it's eyes were reptilian red and it had a purple symbol of 6 pitchforks with slightly different number of spikes on it and around the symbol was a fire ball like design on the right side of the creature's wing. The weird thing was that they were only thing in color. The monster floats down onto the floor and changes into Satoshi, but his eyes were still lizard like and the colors of his clothes were different. The white shirt was black, the brown vest was now green, his black shoes were white, and his red pants oddly stayed red. It was weird that these things were the only things in color. The boy leaves the room and walks down corridors of stone. After a while, the boy walks to a balcony that reveals the boy was in a castle and said castle over viewed a large colorless village. The boy smiles. He clicks his fingers and a swarm of colorless zubats fly to him. The boy soon points to the large village. The zubats nodded and fly down. The boy soon transforms into the bat creature again and flies with the zubats. Screams soon echoed through the village as the beast flies above and his minions attacked the citizens. The monster soon notices a man who looks like Averian, and a woman who looks like Delia were running from the destruction in a lone ally way, except everything was in black and white. Satoshi growls and drives towards them. The monster lands and spreads his wings so he could block their getaway. "DRACULA!" The two humans yelled in terror. The monster steps forward. The ground shocked. The man gets out a sword from his back and holds it. The woman hides behind the man for protection. The beast chuckles. It soon uses razor cutter which knocks the man over and forces him to let go of his sword. The woman screams in horror. When the man lands, the woman rushes over to him. The beast soon moves in closer and looks at the two people. The man was severely injured but was still alive. Meanwhile, the woman was helplessly weeping over him.

This was now the monster's time to strike. However, it hesitated since it's heart didn't know which one to attack first. The woman resembled Delia, who he felt betrayed by, but the other was Averian, a boy who actually betrayed him. Satoshi soon turns back into his human-ish form. He holds his chest. Suddenly there was an angry mob around them. They all looked unhappy with pitchforks and torches. Satoshi felt his heart beat fast. He looked around. What should he do? What should he do? His heart was so confused and if he didn't get out of there now, they would kill him. He looked at the crowd and sees another boy in the front. Satoshi soon smiles at him. The boy was a few years younger than Satoshi, he had swirly short hair and wore a thick set of Victorian clothes. Satoshi soon transforms back into the beast and uses guest to push every one away. The beast flies up and uses his talon like feet to grab the brown haired boy and begins to fly back to his castle. As the angry mob get out arrows to try and shoot the monster down, the swarm of zubats came and attack the villagers as a distraction. Back at the castle, Satoshi stayed as his bat form and dragged the poor man back to the room Satoshi was sleeping in. The vampire puts the screaming human onto a wooden slab that was meant to hold people back while someone torture them. The man tried to get up, but the monster soon slashed at his torso. The cuts weren't too deep, but they did get out blood. The man screams in agony. Satoshi smiles as he transforms back to his human form. He soon ties the man up in leather restrictions. The vampire soon gets on top of the weeping man and licks the blood with his reptilian tongue. The man winches. Satoshi laughs. He soon rips the man's pants off, showing his underwear. "Please. Please don't. PLEASE DON'T DO WHAT I THINK YOU'RE GOING TO DO!" The man yelled in terror. Satoshi chuckles, then bits on the area where the man's neck. Blood spurts out and the man screams at top of his lungs in pain. All the while, Satoshi drank the blood.

...

It was early in the morning when Satoshi woke up in a startle, sweat came down his face. After calming himself down, he soon yawned. "Aw man, what a terrible dream." Satoshi said as he holds his head in pain. He notices that Pikachu was still asleep though on the bed. He sighs. He carefully walks down to the ground. Once on solid ground, the vampire stretches and yawns. He soon thought back to his dream. 'But, why was I Dracula and why was I only in color?' He thought to himself. Suddenly there was a knocking on the door. Satoshi looks at the clock, it was 5 o'clock in the morning. "W-who is it?" Satoshi asked, a bit grumpy. He didn't really notice the grumpiness though. "Hi, I'm Joseph and I'm on of the errand boys like Barry. Anyways, I'm here to tell you that the ship is stopping in the small country of Curitiba for fuel and food replacement, so you'll be off work for about 10 hours. The captain also told me to tell you and a few others that the trip to London will take about 10-11 days. Man, the Atlantis ocean is much smaller compared to the Morin ocean. " Satoshi nodded in agreement. "Oh, I almost forgot, the ship is going to receive a tone of mail soon. The Pelipper Express was slowed down immensely due to a storm on the Morin ocean so it took a long time to get back to the ship. It's also the reason your letter from earlier was so delayed. Thankfully that and a few other Pelipper mail have returned to the ship much earlier than these ones. Including a letter from the Queen Helena of Japan, she says that this voyage will show the rest of the world how wonderful our nation is, and that the Opium war was just a little misunderstanding. I can't believe the captain told me this and the fact that this is 'technically' the first trip around the world since the shipping trades had reopen up." The boy said. Satoshi rolled his eyes, he knew all of this before. "So? Why are you telling me all of this? I'm from Kanto you know," Satoshi grumpily asked. He soon yawned again. "Well, you have some mail from your friends. These letters will be given to you at 7 o'clock so be ready. Bye." Joseph said. Satoshi nodded and said bye. After a while, the boy's footsteps couldn't be heard. Satoshi yawns and stretches again. Pikachu soon gets up. The vampire notices this. "Oh, sorry Pikachu. I'm just really tired. I had a bad dream." Satoshi admitted. Pikachu nodded.

Satoshi looks at the medical bag, it was full of small bottles. The vampire picks up one of them and unplugs it. He drinks it, and once he was done with the small bottle, the boy pulled it away from his mouth and lies on his bed. He yawns again. 'Maybe I can have a nap before the letters arrive.' The boy thought to himself. He soon closes his eyes. He did get some sleep, but it wasn't that much since his body was trying to make him resist the bed and go back to being upside down. After a few hours or so to the boy, another knock was heard. The boy gets up and yawns. However, he still felt grouchy. "Who is it?!" The boy yelled, a bit more angry. He hears a gulp, then hears the same boy from earlier. "It's me, Joseph, you know from earlier. I'm here to give you your mail." He said. Satoshi sighs, he kind of forgot. "Okay, okay. I'm coming." He said. He soon gets up and opens the door. Joseph was a boy a year younger than Satoshi by the way he looked. He had short brown hair that was a little bit spiky, his eyes were blue, he wore a yellow shirt with an orange stripe across it, blue shorts, and black shoes. The boy soon gives the vampire a stack of letters. Satoshi raised an eyebrow. He didn't expect the pile to be this big. Satoshi takes it from the boy's hands, says thanks and goodbye, and shuts the door. Satoshi move over to the bed he used to hold his books and puts the stack of letters on it. He unties the bundle and then arranges the letters by date. He soon noticed the first date was August 4, 1870 which was a few days after his dad's letter, and the last date was August 30, 1870. Satoshi smiled, he kind of forgot it was the beginning of the 70's for him. He wondered what the up coming decade will be like. He was actually glad to be born in the same year as when 'steam punk' technology was on the verge of breakthrough. It had been used for some trains, a few machines, and boats, but thanks to the Wright brothers, Thomas Edison, and the boom of Industrial Revolution, things have been growing rapidly in the world of technology. Satoshi soon remembered his calendar he has and begins to look through his bags.

After awhile, he found the calendar in his books bag and that it was 1870 like the letters, however the date January 11th was circled along with Feburary 9th, July 13th, and December 30th. He noticed that the hole that held the months up was broken except for January's. 'Oh yeah, the 11th was Delia's birthday, the 9th was Brock's, and 30th is Gary's. Man, it felt like forever since I last thought of them. To bad the hole broke off so I kind of forgot my own birthday. July 13 is such a weird date for me to be born in, the only thing good about it this year was that it wasn't on a Friday. Stupid superstition.' Satoshi thought in anger. He soon shocked it off, now wasn't the time to think about time. He soon looked at the piles of letters from Kanto, Sinnoh, and Unova. 4 from Kanto, 3 from Delia, 3 from Sinnoh, and 5 mails from himself addressed to Delia. Satoshi was confused by this since he didn't remember writing so much mail for Delia. "Man, mail can sure pile up quickly." Satoshi said. Pikachu nodded. Satoshi grabs a letter from Unova that had the earliest return date. Satoshi smiles as he opens it and remembers Delia. But suddenly his stomach churned in discus, like the idea of her made him feel sick. Satoshi shocked his head. 'What was that all about?' He thought. He soon read the letter. "Dear Satoshi, I got your letter. It must be nice being on that research ship, even if you're not feeling that well. Me? I'm doing fine, moving into this large city was a bit more hectic than I expected, but everything is fine now. Castelia City is much bigger than any city in Kanto though and has a lot more of the steam punk stuff that you like. Thankfully I got a Skitty from my neighbor to confute me. My neighbor is really nice and a bit cute. But don't worry, nothing big will happen between him and me. Hope to see you soon, Delia." It read. Satoshi smiled, however the odd feeling of betrayal and anger still sat in his heart. He ignores these feelings, puts Delia's letter down and grabs the first letter from Gary, the date was the same as Delia's.

"Hey Ashy-boy, nice to get a letter from you, but why did you call me Gary Oak? You know my grandpa Oak is on my mother's side so I don't get the right to have that as my last name, so why did you write it on the letter? I hope you're feeling alright in the head at least. Anyways, I read your letter about how you feel sick. Well, don't worry, you'll get better, maybe it's the reason you got my name wrong. And man you're still a fraidy Meowth for falling for that lame story. Brock and I have told way better ghost stories when we were kids than this adult man. As for what I'm doing, I've just arrived at my ranger station where I'll be guarding the small town of Twinleaf Town from dangerous Pokemon. Lucky for me this is a resort town full of rich and median classed people. But the best part is that this town holds Sinnoh's longest contestant coordinator champion Johanna Carew, her husband Danvers Carew, and Dawn Carew. I bet you will really like her. She's really cute. Sincerely, Gary." It said. Satoshi got angry. 'Stupid Gary. Still calling me that. But then again I accidentally did that. Odd that I didn't notice that. I know I tend to give my friends more silly names in my dreams, but this is the first time it happened while in real life.' Satoshi thought to himself. He soon grabbed the first letter from Brock, it was a day latter than Gary and Delia's letters. 'Well Sinnoh and Unova were closer to me in the ship than Kanto when I wrote my letters, so I guess it would make sense, and there's the one letter from mom, but...what about these other letters, did something happened to them so they must send another letter to me? Because I know I sure didn't send them any more letters other than the first. But then again I got these letters addressed to Delia, so I could be wrong.' The boy thought, a bit confused. He opens Brock's letter. "Dear Satoshi, I got your letter. And I'm very interested in your strange aliment you said you have. Next time, tell me what your symptoms are so I can help. Anyways, I'm fine. It's nice being back home with dad. It's been so long since I've last seen him. Being a gym leader is really tough, and time consuming. I know since Dad decided to let me be a gym leader for a few months as he goes on vacation with mom, which also means I have to help my brothers and sisters out even more than usual. It's going to be tough but I can handle it. Hope you get better, Brock." It read. Satoshi smiled.

He kind of wished he had gotten this before his dad dropped the bomb on him. Satoshi starts on the second set of letters from his friends. He grabs Delia's letter first. "Hello, Satoshi. I've got your newest letter. My, your letter was very...aggressive. You really don't like this Trip guy. Odd that he was being so mean to you. But I hope now you will be feeling better. But...there's one thing that bothered me about your letter. You were being much more profound in your words and used a lot of bad langue while talking about the boy you don't like and to me. Satoshi, did something happened? Why would you ever use such harsh langue? I hope you will clarify everything in your next letter. Sincerely, your worrying friend, Delia," It asked. Satoshi was taken a back. 'W-what!? I...I wrote THAT in this other letter to her? But I don't even remember it. But then again, I did felt like I was blacking out for a few minutes at random parts of the day. Maybe I wrote it when that happened?' Satoshi clutches his head. 'What's going on with my mind?' He thought to himself. He shocked his head. He grabbed the next letter from Gary. "Hey, Ashy-boy, how are you? Me, I'm fine. Anyways, I'm writing to you about these strange occurrences that are happening around the town. There's been howls and cries of people in pain. But every time we rangers go to the area where we heard the sound, there's nothing to find. The older rangers soon tell us about how there are supposedly were-Pokemon going around town. Although I don't believe, but I hope you could help me out when you come to Sinnoh. Sincerely, Gary." It said. Satoshi smiled, at least it wasn't because of a letter he gave to his rival. He grabs the next letter and sees it's from Mom, hopefully she would be nicer to him and maybe tell him a bit more about his vampire heritage.

"Dear son, I'm very sorry about your father's letter. I should have sent a letter earlier, or at least make your father's letter less hurtful. But your father was so demanding and cold as usual. But I digress, I wanted to talk to you about your letter and what I think is really going on with you. Satoshi, it's about your sanity. I'm very worried about your mental health. You've been feeling pain inside of you, you're confused and scared, and your anger levels are rising. These things don't normally happen to a vampire, and no studies of vampire kids have shown these kind of symptoms. Satoshi, I fear that your mind is finally breaking after all we have done to you, it's the only way I see these things making sense to me. I always tried to help you, make you see the light, and learn how to stay happy, but I fear I am too late and the damage to you is too severe. I wish I could have been with you and helped you more, and I wish your father wasn't such of a bum raw to you, but you're mind is now too far in madness for rescue. You'll soon lose your mind in a few months I bet and you will lose everything to you. Satoshi, I just hope you read this warning and know that your mind is dangerous and very clever. My only hope is the Vampire council will forgive your sins and somehow find a way to heal you, because I know the humans won't. But then again maybe it isn't too late for you and I'm being paranoid, but base off your symptoms, it looks like your losing your mind, even before Edward's letter got to you. I hope for your safety and that your sanity is still in shape, your loving mother, even if you never believe it, Megera Jekyll." It said, Satoshi held chest. Was he now insane like his mother feared? It would explain Delia's letter. Satoshi shocked his head. 'No! I'm not INSANE! I'm ...I'M SANE!' He yelled himself. He shocked his head. He soon looked at Delia's last letter. "Satoshi, I'm...I'm done with all of these horrible letters you keep giving me. I'm dating my neighbor George now. I'm also moving to a small village where you can't find me or my mailing address. I'm also sending all your horrible mail back to you. Week after week, I've been getting your threats and your horribleness. Satoshi, I thought your horribleness would end when you were 14, but whatever happened to you, you've changed back into that monster. You're no longer the young boy who loved me, your now those monsters in books and in those Unova motion pictures. You're back to being that horrid boy who hated every boy who wasn't him. I hope I NEVER see you again! Sincerely for the last time, Delia." It read.

Satoshi felt his world crash around him. 'No. NO! No, this ...this can't be happening.' Satoshi felt as his rage boiled. He had to look at these 'terrible' letters now. He grabbed them. He soon began to read the first which was written a day after he had sent his parents the first letter and looked at his very neat hand writing. It was like all of this other letters to his friend and his parents, where he talked about his feelings of his aliment, and how he was curious of how the others were doing. Thankfully he didn't add the blood part for his friends because that would be sick. He grabs the next letter, it was made a few days later. It was angry, it about how he recalled how Trip behaved to him and how he wanted to hit him, hurt him in many ways, and how he wanted to never see him again. Satoshi noticed he used a lot of dirty langue that he learned about because of his books, his father, and from him going around town and learning about the city life. Satoshi was disgusted by this, making him forget his rage. He soon read the other letters, which were made in rapid succession, they were paranoid notes about how he wanted to know where she was, what she was doing, and being angry and paranoid about if she was going behind his back. He threats her that she better not find someone to love, that she shouldn't be with anyone else but him, and it portrays her as an item that belongs to only him and he's the only one who she should even listen to. Not to mention his hand writing was very sloppy and childish. Satoshi was discussed by himself. How could he ever write such garbage? Satoshi held his body. "W-what if mom was right? What if I am insane? It...It would explain these terrible letters. I...I don't even remember writing these, even though the writing is sloppy, this is my writing and not an impostors." Satoshi said, fearing his life. Pikachu was worried about the boy. Satoshi shocked his head. He had to carry on, he had to be stronger, he had to be a good boy. "I WILL BE A GOOD BOY! I will make me better. Me...me good boy." Satoshi said, his eyes turning into lizard red. "PIKAPI!" The mouse yells as he shoots a thunderbolt at the vampire. This snaps the boy out of it. "T-Thanks...I...I needed that." Satoshi said as the thunderbolt ended.

He quickly opens and reads the last two letters. Gary's letter shows that he had received a letter similar to Delia's, and he's worried that the boy has lost it. Meanwhile, Brock also got another disgusting letter, and hopes the boy didn't become a psychopath. Brock mentions that the boy had hurt Pokemon and Delia in the past whenever he got angry and fears that Satoshi is now insane. Satoshi steps back when Brock's letter reached the part of him hurting Pokemon and Delia. The boy winches as he remembers the incidents. He wanted to forget about these wicked deeds which was why he had only vaguely described them to Barry, and never told the boy that he was the one who caused all the pain. Satoshi soon held his head. He soon remembered the first time he was 'wicked'. It was when he was two, he bite on his nanny, Then at four, his parents had adopted some baby Growlithes as part of a welcome gift from the hospital of Pokemon in his home city. The boy was playing with them one day, and when one of them bit him, the boy soon went into a crazed state and broke their backs. Satoshi winches as he remembers the snapping sound, sound of his own deranged laughter, and the dead Growlithes. He would constantly mock and be cruel to his instructors and tutors. He remembered that his fencing teacher had to retire after the boy learned most of the sword skills because he would attack the man time and again. Trying to make him as broken as possible. At age 12 he pushed Delia down the steps outside of his house when she refused to sleighing with him and being his Christmas honey, but she wanted to instead of to play with her doll. About how he always was jealous of boys who liked Delia. Then another memory of him breaking several of his father's vase in rebellion of his father. He remembered the wiping afterward. He remembered every single time he felt his inner demon come out, however the only times it didn't was at school. He soon remembered the nightmares after all the incidents. His father said that he was being attacked by the monster that was him. This soon made his story feel more real since these incidents made him like the monster the other boys and girls called him as being.

Satoshi gets shocked back into reality. He looks at Pikachu. "Th-thanks Pikachu. I...I was stuck in my memories. I...I realized that even before I became a vampire I've been doing so much terrible things. M-maybe I am insane. But...but that won't matter anymore, I'll become perfect once my formula and my theory is complete. I will lose the evil inside of me and will cure this diseased world and make people like my father disappear. Make the bad people disappear." Satoshi soon laughs maniacally at this thought, the monstrous look was in his eyes again. Pikachu hides under the bed. Satoshi soon looks at the clock. It was nearing 12 o'clock. Satoshi smiled. "Well, I'll have to go back to my shift. You know...I should talk to Barry or Trip about the Angles and Demons. I never did get to know what the whole deal about them is. All I know about religion about is the vague notes from my friends, and the Pokelantis religion." Satoshi said. His eyes gleamed in delight. Soon, he grabbed two little bottles and puts them in his pockets. "You know Pikachu, I think my emotion turmoil deserves two bottles to drain the pain away. I can't wait to get to taste wine, Opium, and other kinds of drugs. It'll make more of my pain to go away." Satoshi said, smiling. Pikachu didn't like that. Satoshi leaves the room, after a while he sees Barry on his way. Satoshi looked at Barry in delight, now was the time to talk to his friend. "Hey Barry!" Satoshi shouted at his friend. Barry looks his way. "Oh, hey Satoshi. On break?" Barry asked. The vampire nodded. "Yep, I've been on break for quite a while. I'm sorry that I missed Breakfast, I had a lot to think about, and I got quite a bit of mail. Anyways, I want to learn more about the Angles and Demons and what the whole 'religion' is called. After all, I only learned about it about time ago and I only know the vary basics." Satoshi confessed. The idea was eating at his mind. "Oh. The angles stuff. Okay, especially since Trip didn't tell you anything deep about it when he talked about vampires." Barry said. Satoshi smiled. "Unfortunately we'll have to go back to work soon, so I'll met you in my room after dinner." Barry said. Satoshi nods. Soon the two left for lunch.

After lunch, Jekyll went back to work, pushing all of his anger and his pain into his work, and used the fire Pokemon of the other workers to make the ship faster, and hurt them when ever they stopped. He push them further than what the others wanted. In fact, one boy got so fed up with Satoshi's bulling that he soon called him out. "What!? I'm not a bully!" Satoshi yelled at the boy. The boy had short black smooth hair, wore a thick white shirt, and black pants and shoes. Satoshi growled. "No, you're just denying it. Look at these Pokemon, do they look like their having fun, do they look that happy? I heard that you cared about Pokemon and wouldn't want them to be harm, but look at you. Forcing them to make this ship faster. IS THAT FAR!? And what's the rush, what do you want to get away from?" The boy asked. Satoshi felt his body aching in pain as he refused his body from transforming into his bat form. He clutches his right arm. "I'm not afraid. I'm not a coward. I'm NOT A MONSTER!" He yells. The others step back. Satoshi soon noticed this and the scared Pokemon. 'nononononononono. No again. I'm hurting Pokemon again. I'm being the monster again. I...I have to get away this place.' He soon hyperventilate. "Hey, are you okay?" Another boy asked. "No...G-get away from me. I...I'm not well." Satoshi said. Soon he ran off. After a while of climbing, he reached his room and lies on his bed. He breaths heavily as the pain begin to go away. 'I'm not well. I'm a monster. I...I can't live in this kind of world again. I...I...I need to make this world perfect. I need to make myself perfect. I have to make my dream come true. I will make sure this dream will stay it's coarse and won't let ANYONE get in my way! I HAVE to make this separation! I have to become pure good. It's the only way for me to make these sins go away.' He said to himself. He's body soon ached in pain. He groans in pain. He had to get some sleep. His mind was in too much pain to make himself well while awake. He looked at his ceiling as his body forces himself up to the ceiling where he falls asleep.

...

Satoshi walked into the room and sees Barry and another man with him. The man was your generic sailor man with brown hair and blue eyes. Barry soon notices the vampire. "Oh, Satoshi's here. Satoshi this is Jonah, he's my room mate I told about earlier." Barry said. The man waved. Satoshi smiled and waved. "He's going to go back on deck soon as night watch. Security has doubled ever since the murders." Barry said. Satoshi sighed. "I know. I know. You don't have to remind me." The vampire said. Soon the man left. Satoshi sits on Jonah's bed. "Satoshi, before we talk about the angles and demons stuff. I wanted to talk to you about your story you told a week ago. I didn't want to mention this stuff while you were talking, since I was so entranced by your story, but now I've noticed a few ...'errors' that contradicts things you said earlier." Barry said. Satoshi tilted his head. "Huh? How so?" The vampire asked. "Well...back when we first met, you said that Ashy-boy was an annoying nickname Gary gave you, but while you were telling your story, you said that the other kids started the saying and Gary picked it up. Plus both meanings of what you said was the reason you hated that name seemed off. Although it's kind of my fault for forgetting the reason you told me earlier." Barry said holding his head. Satoshi eyes widen. "Really? Huh." Satoshi said as he held his chin. This was weird. "Well, what was my original hatred?" Satoshi asked, a bit confused. Barry titled his head. "You said you hated the name because it wasn't yours and because you didn't want be acknowledged as a boy. But your story was because you acted like a monster...Satoshi are you okay? This weird disconnect is scarring me. Plus in your story you said you attacked two boys, but a month or so ago, you said you never would attack anyone, even if you hated them. Satoshi, are you sure that story wasn't just build up rage?" Barry asked. Satoshi held his chin. His mind soon thought back to the letters that he had received. However, he wasn't sure of what to make of it.

'What if Barry is right and I'm not fully well, it could ruin everything that I've been working for...and... what if...those two boys were *gulp* actually innocent. I was very angry at them when I left, and this anger. This rage I've been holding back for so long ever since I locked away since I was 14 was actually blasted at them and my mind made up their betrayal so I wouldn't have to feel any more guilt.' Satoshi felt his stomach churned at the thought of it. He didn't know what to do. Was Barry right, or was the story right. After all, the vampire did such horrible things like that when he was really young, so it would be no wonder these terrible feelings would still be around. "Satoshi. Please tell me what really happened to those two vampires you met up with?" Barry said. Satoshi's eyes shrank. "Trip and I both know that you were the one to last see them and we know you turned into that strange bat creature for some reason. Not to mention you killed those girls at the villages. Trip even said that it was very strange for you to get a full transformation in at this early of the transitioning stage. So what happened to cause all of this. I know it can't because Trip said that you were still in the middle of the transitioning stage." Barry said. Satoshi felt his heart beat rapidly as panic began to engulf him as he remembers these exposition that were given during his night time practices. "Satoshi...please...tell me the truth." Barry said. "T-the truth." Satoshi said, scared. He didn't know what to say. What should he say anyways? 'N-no, Barry is my friend, he'll...he'll keep my secret. He always does.' The vampire said to try and calm himself. "The truth is..I...I killed those other boys and molested Averian. I...I drank their blood and at their brains to get stronger. I ...I was so tired of being weak, of being controlled by my father, that I just wanted to be stronger in the fastest way possible. Ignoring all the warnings and the laws. I just want to hurt him so much." Satoshi said, ashamed of himself. "I...I'm sorry Barry for not telling you, but you have to promise not to tell Trip. If he finds out, I'm a goner. I...I don't want that to happen." Satoshi said. "But didn't you once said that you should be dead." Barry said. Satoshi steps back.

"Y-yes, but... but I was just very sad, I'm...I'm much better now." Satoshi said, his eyes twitched for a couple of seconds as he holds his right arm. "Satoshi, I'm sorry. But..." Barry said. Satoshi felt his heart drop as Barry speaks. "I can't let a monster like you live on like this. Your a danger to everyone around you, even more than usual." Satoshi felt his body stiffen up as his mind felt it breaking. The words of his mother's letter was rushing back to him. 'It's too late for you now.' A sentence repeated in his mind. Suddenly Trip comes up with Serperior. The magical creature soon vine wipes the boy and hangs him upside down. "No. NO! I...I...I've changed. I'm a good boy. I...I won't do it again." Satoshi said as he struggles from his prison, tears in his eyes. "Satoshi, I warned you that this would happen if you killed another person, it doesn't matter that they were vampires, you still did it, and now it's time to punish you. Your time is up and you will die." Trip said as he pulls out a knife. Satoshi clutches in pain as his body ached. He closes his eyes. 'Nononononononononononono.' The words drowned into the boy's head. The vampire's eyes suddenly shot up open with them being reptilian red. He roars in anger as his body grows and brakes the vines. Green blood like things burst out of the broken limbs as the boy turns into the bat creature. It grabs the Serperior and throws it into the wall. Trip pulls out a rope out of now where and trows haft of it to Barry. They wrap it around the monster. However, before it was trapped again, the monster broke free by biting on it. It launches towards Trip and bites his hands off, a crunch sound made by the bones breaking off. Trip tires to kick it off, but the monster is uneffected by it. It soon claws at the boy until the boy was nothing but guts and blood. Barry looks in horror. "You...YOU BEAST!" Barry yelled, he soon pulls out a steam punk Pokeball. Soon it opens, and a white light comes out. The bat monster covers it's eyes, the light was so bright. "EMPOLEON, WATER PULSE!" Barry yelled. Before the monster could look at the Pokemon and get away, a large pillar of water gushed towards him and pushes him out of into the halls.

Satoshi growled and gets up, his right arm soon lights up a sick purple look as the strange symbol of 6 pitchforks surrounded by fire from earlier glowed. The monster imminently grew bigger, and bigger as his body soon became more bird like. It's head hits the top of the the ceiling as it stops growing. It had a bird's beak, two black horns, large bird wings with the strange symbol on it's right arm, a large tail that looks like it's wings, and bird legs. It roars, it's screech was a large high pitched sound that was monstrous. It soon shots purple fire out of it's mouth, which hits Empoleon. The fire oddly covered the penguin and began to burn it up. "Empoleon! USE AQUA JET TO EXTINGUISH THE FLAMES!" Barry yells. The bird did so and soon it's body was covered in water, but the fire wasn't going out. The penguin launches towards the strange bird monster, and hits it in the guts. It soon howls in pain.

...

"Aarroooooo!" Satoshi yells in agony. He soon wakes up, panting in fear and cold sweat. He closed his eyes and holds his arm in fear. His body trembled as the fear of the nightmares rewashed over him. He cries in pain. He wanted to call for his mother and father, he wanted the pain to go away. But he knew they wouldn't come, not only because they weren't there but because they didn't love him anymore in his eyes. He clutches his body as he tries to calm himself. After while of crying, the boy was able to regain his senses, but all that does was make him realize how much of a monster he was. 'S-something is defiantly very off with me. That nightmare was terrifying. I thought the last of them had gone away for a long, long time. I...I'm scared if it could really happen? And now that I think of it, that dream Barry was right, my reason from when I first met him and the story I told him and Trip are totally different and contradict each other. It concerns me about my sanity. Did my story really happened the way I explained it? I know the event happened with the boys and the party, and I did feel eminence rage towards them, but what about the rest? It's been quite some time since that time, plus my head is still a bit hazy from the lack of blood so I can't really remember.' He clutches his head. His heart pumped fast. 'I...I have to keep calm. I have to stay in control. I...I don't want the dream to come true. I...I don't want to die. I don't want to die.' He thought to himself, but soon the nagging feeling in the back of his mind came to him. 'But...why? After all I did want to kill myself yesterday.' Satoshi holds his head in pain. What was going on with him? He looks at the clock and sees that it was ten passed 8 o'clock. He had missed dinner. He looked at his body, thankfully he wasn't feeling hungry right now. Satoshi soon remembered that he had to met Barry about demons and Angles. His heart soon shocked, what if is dream came true, not only would he be caught for his crimes, but he would also lose his friends again. He shocked his head, his friends would understand, and they would help him if it ever happened. Walks down to the ground. He soon gets Pikachu and walks out of the room. He walks down to Barry's room and knocks.

"B-barry it's me." Satoshi said, still feeling uneasy from his dream. The Sinnoh boy opens the door, and smiles. "Hey Satoshi, nice for you to come, I was worried when you didn't come to dinner," Barry said. Satoshi nodded. "Y-yeah, I was fast asleep and had a nightmare. It...It was about our meeting and how I've been acting weird ever since I discovered I was a vampire. Then Trip learned about how I killed those people back at the Canal and tried to hunt me down," Satoshi said. "Really? Well, Trip would act that way and you have been acting strange, that's for sure. But I'm sure Trip wouldn't hunt you. He's our friend, and he promised to help you out," Barry said. This doesn't help the boy's nerves. He holds his right arm. "Um, Satoshi, your holding your right arm, is that a nervous habit?" Barry asked. Satoshi soon snaps back to reality. "Y-yes. When I'm very nervous, I hold my right arm. It holds a birthmark of a symbol of my family. My dad told me that holding my mark is a good luck charm to calm myself and that he has a similar mark on his back." Satoshi said. Barry raised an eyebrow. "A family mark? Satoshi, why didn't you tell me and show me it earlier?" Barry asked. Satoshi looked away. "W-well, because it's a bodily part of me. I think it's just so weird to tell someone about it. That's why I don't like talking about my allergies." Satoshi admitted. "Can you at least show me it?" Barry asked. Satoshi smiles. "S-sure." The vampire said as he rolls up his sleeve on his right arm. On the upper arm on the side of it was a strange black symbol. It was of 6 pitchforks with slightly different number of spikes and one with two spikes on the side of one of the pitchforks designed like a snowflake. Around it was a fire ball like design. Barry 'oohed' at this. "That's actually a pretty cool design. I kind of wished I had it." Barry said. Satoshi blushed, at least this was easing his nerves and made him feel human again. "Th-thanks. Although my dad also told me to not show it to anyone since he said that it looks kind of evil and dealing with religious people would be a pain." Satoshi said. Barry nodded. "Yeah, I can see that. It does look evil. Thankfully, I'm not one of those people," Barry said. "But you do know about the angles and stuff. Now tell me all about them," Satoshi said in excitement. His energy was now renominated as he remembered the cool monsters. "Okay, okay." Barry said, a bit weirded out by the boy's mood shift. He soon coughed.

"So let's talk about the angels, neutral gods, and demons. First off, there are many kinds of religions that are based of these entities, how exactly they behave, and whither or not they actually are good or not. There are even some religions that I heard of from my friends back home that either don't believe the legendaries are gods and that their just pawns of some even bigger god, or that the legendaries are just very powerful Pokemon and they are not gods. But your not here to talk about that. The religion that I've been told about and is the main religion of Japan is the Arceusism religion, where Arceus is worshiped." Barry said. Satoshi nodded. "You know, I've actually read in the scrolls of my family, that the Ancient Pokelantians believed that Giratina is the true lord of the world and that he should be obeyed, and that Arceus is a bad god. It was called Giratinism." Satoshi added. Barry was impressed. "I always wondered where that religion came from. Now it's used by people called gypsies who are travelers who go around towns doing tricks and use Pokemon to do those tricks. I heard a few people are fallowing the gypsies like acts and use them to do other things with it, but don't believe in their religion. I think their called Magicians." Barry said. He soon shocked his head. "Now isn't the time to talk about that. We're here to talk about angles and demons. Anyways, a long, long, long time ago Arceus created the world. Some people have speculated if it was Arceus or Mew who did that, but I'm digressing. In the Arceusism, it's believed that it was Arceus who did it. He created the world and created 6 entities to aid him. Mespirit, Uxie, Azelf, Dialga, Palkia, and Giratina, which were the first angels. Giratina was his top angel and his 'left' hand, while the gods Palkia and Dialga were his 'right' hand. He supposedly creates Mew, the world, and a few more angels to aid him create the world. According to legend, most of these angles were actually the neutral gods and I think one or two of them became real angles after a war that I will explain later, but anyways, Arceus and the previous angles kept them in line. Mew grew and soon the world had tons of Mews. To make sure the world doesn't get over populated, he created Xerious and Yveltal as the essence of life and death.

"After a ton of more angels were formed to help obverse and help the world, the mews began changing into different Pokemon by evolving. No one really know what they turned into or what caused the evolution other than the fact that the world was changing. Anyways, some time after that, the time not being cleared to us, humans began to roam the earth, and the angels Yvetal and Giratina grew distrustful of the people and jealous of how Arceus seemed to like them more than his creations. Arceus tried to calm them down by picking a random human to show that he did not favor the humans over them and that humans have strong wills that make him interested in them. The human was named Job, and he was given everything he wanted. The gods decided that they had to take away everything and hurt the man to break his will and show god that he was mistaken about humans. They took away all the items and destroyed most of the guy's food, but the guy stayed loyal. However, Arceus was not pleased at the two angles, and warned them to not do again. The two promised, but they didn't fallow up on it. Giratina soon used the Pokemon of the era to hunt the humans even more than usual, and Yvetal helped Giratina by planning all of his attacks and secret raids to the villages. Soon Arceus learned of these horrible acts and stopped the bad angels. Giratina then shows that all of his anger and betrayal was so he could become an even powerful god and wanted Arceus' power. Arceus soon used his magic to turn the beautiful Giratina into the monster he is now, drain the intelligence of Yveltal, and cast the two from the Hall of Origin, the place some people call heaven where good souls go two, to earth to end their troubling since he didn't have the heart to kill his friends. However 13 angels then fallowed them causing Arceus to banish them as well. But this rift between the angels and god soon weaken the power around the neutral gods which caused them to be released into our world and stay in here for all of eternity. Not a lot of people know why the neutral gods can't go back into the hall through. Giratina and Yveltal soon swear revenge against the god, and regain what Arceus had stolen from them. The humans call the fallen angels demons because they're now fully monsters. And that's about that. It is said that Giratina and Yveltal will end the world with fire and ice but that's just a rumor." Barry said. Satoshi was intrigued. "So~...what do these demons look like?" Satoshi asked. Barry surged. "Don't know, no one has ever fully seen a demon. And if they did, what they look like and which one of them it was always changes from person to person. I bet the Pokelantians know since they believed in Giratina, but since you know that religion and still don't know what Giratina looks like, I doubt we'll know for sure unless we talk to another vampire." Barry said. Satoshi gulped. "Well, let's not talk about it for now. Is there anything that I need to know?" Satoshi asked. Barry held his head, but shocked no. "No, not really. The only thing I can think of is that the general look of what Giratina looks now is a serpent with six wavy tentacle like wings, a masks that hides it's ugliness, black eyes, and spikes on it's tail." Barry said.

Satoshi took a step back. 'Th-that sounds like Mr. Crime...my...my old toy I used to play with... What does it mean? Does it mean that my family has been secretly worshiping Giratinism all this time.' The vampire thought. Maybe that was the reason he was so screwed up in the head, because of his stupid Vampire heritage. He growls. "It's all their fault! I knew they believed in something. How could they not! With the world having so many wonderful monsters covering it. It's this religion that created these monsters, I'm sure of it. And it's the reason why I'm so messed up in the head. Yes. Yes. It all makes sense." Satoshi said as his eyes looked monstrous again. Barry grabs the vampire by the shoulders. "SATOSHI, GET A HOLD OF YOURSELF!" Barry yelled. This snaps the boy back to reality. "Wh-what just happened?" The Sinnoh boy asked as Satoshi held his head. "I-I;m sorry Barry. I didn't mean to say that...I...I've been in a vicious cycle for a little bit. My brain has been in a loop as it tries to correct itself. I've been so unsure of everything that I feel like I'm falling into madness." The vampire confessed, feeling his body aching some more. Barry wasn't happy. "Satoshi, you can make it through all of this. Just forget about your parents and your roots, and focus on everything else. You can't keep on dwelling on these things." Barry said. Satoshi nodded. "Y-your right. You know what, we should have another tour of the ship again and meet Chef Bellrock again. It's been so long since we last saw him." Satoshi said. Barry smiled. "Sure! That's the Satoshi I know." Barry said. Satoshi smiled back. 'Barry's right, I have been focusing too hard on my fears and such. I need to relax and have some more fun.' The boy thought. "Well, I'd better get back to my room." The boy said. Barry nodded. Soon the vampire left.
