Days had passed since the reconstruction of Tao. The once depressing rubble left after the Sorbet incident had become a vibrant cityscape; minus the fancy buildings and all. It was all thanks to the good beings of Tao that had come together to rebuild what was lost. But it wasn't enough to call it a day just yet. Even though the guild leaders and some teams had their homes again, the land itself was still rugged. In the wake of it all a Celebi named Jasmine was summoned and sent to the guild leaders by Arianna. the reason behind this was the forests in Tao had begun to decay and if this was not stopped they would be eradicated due to the Sorbet attack. To save the forests they had to plant any form of green life into the soils of the earth. Despite the fact that it would normally take months, or even years to make this happen, Jasmine told everyone not to worry and plant anyways.
It would be nice to do something for the world. After all, they were living in it as well as breathing the air, and it was their antics that may actually destroy it. To others it would be known as "Tao" day, since they're making the area a little greener than usual and, well, it's what they call the world anyways. Answering the call of duty, Dragon and Princess geared themselves up for the upcoming event by taking a few lessons from Peapple, their green eccentric Tropius friend, about the ups and downs when it comes to plantlife.
Joining along with them in their job: Team Heat Lightning. Czar had received a letter from Lance that they wanted to cooperate with Dragon and Princess. Czar agreed to the opportunity, and replied back to Lance. A little while after he replied again, Lance wrote about something secretive he wanted to do. He asked Czar to team with Tyra and requested that he keep her busy and away from DnP's team base as long as possible. Czar pondered about this request and wondered what was going on.
Then, one letter later, it clicked...
DnP Base: Afternoon
It was a calm afternoon; not too hot, not too cold either. The perfect time and weather for afternoon walks around Tao, and fishing over at the lakes. It was also the perfect time for hanging out with friends and family alike. Some either went down to the village to gaze at its new buildings, or they went off on adventures for the day. Some even just wanted to have a lazy afternoon and just relax at someone else's home, or team base if they're part of one of the three guilds in Tao. Some members live small and convenient; like the fountain in the middle of Tao village, or big and luxurious like Draclugia's castle.
However, somewhere in Tao woods there's a tree right next to a grand waterfall in the middle of the forest. It's a great oak tree that's about as high as the tallest tree in the woods, maybe a little taller. a pokemon with wings can fly up to view the observation deck that is built upon the tree. Flying on overhead, a Pidove, carrying a letter marked to the team sygnia of PnD, steadily made his approach to the observation deck and gently sat on the wooden and well-polished railing.
The little Pidove eyed the cord that hung from the stick, and tilted his head while murmuring to himself. It took him quite awhile to look down and realize there was a sign that said "Pull here for mail." The Pidove grabed ahold of the cord and pulled down. Once pulled, sounds of bells rung around the observation deck as well as inside the tree. It didn't take too long for one of the residents of the tree to approach the observation deck and look upon the pidove with the letter.
It was Molly receiving the letter, and she opened a bird bath as well as gave the little pokemon a few berries for the return trip. But before she could let the pidove go so he could relax she gently pet the little bird's head. Then she started reading the letter.
It was a reminder letter. It stated that it would be in their best interest to help give the region a little more vibrant flora. Molly giggled and held on to the reminder letter as she skiped her way down to the first floor.
While Molly descended down the stairs, Czar began to converse with another team: Team Odd Squad. They had met during the Sorbet incident but never had time to have a pleasant chat because they were too busy rebuilding Tao and raising money for both Tao and their base.
Czar sat on a couch, talking to one of the team members that had come in for a chat. Their team consisted of a Ducklett named Virgil, a Rotom named Beatrice, and an unhatched egg. Czar sat on one of the couches inside the base while the the Duckett sat on a bean-bag chair. The Rotom couldn't sit so she just hovered in place.
"Heh, thanks for coming guys. I really enjoyed yesterday when we visited the new village of Tao. I must say, PK must have really put effort into making it the way it is. " Czar chuckles while grabbing a cup of water and gently sipping it, he then realizes he was drinking the wrong cup; it was lemonade. Czar sort of flinched a bit and started to roll his mouth a few times to get used to the rather sour taste he hadn't been expecting, "Ack, sorry Virgil, I took your cup by accident. Here, let me pour you another cup."
Czar stood up, and walked towards the kitchen to pour Virgil another glass of lemonade while looking over the counter to see Virgil and Beatrice look towards the egg. Czar closed his eyes and began to think ahead to the future. Once he got older he would like to raise a family with the one he holds dearly to his heart, the female counterpart of himself, or any pokemon that belongs into his egg group. Just seeing the eyes of his offspring and the gentle embrace of his lover would really soothe his soul... however, that dream was far away; he was still young and strong. For now he was focused on making the best adventures for him and his friends, wherever they may be.
An hour later a knock was heard at the front door of the DnP Base. Czar looked out to the backyard through the kitchen door; the kind which was split so that the top half could be opened while the bottom half remained closed, and noticed that it was quarter to two. Seeing that, Czar moved up to the door and opened it for the visitor.
"Hi Czar! Ready to go?" Saying hello to Czar was Tyra, a Charmeleon and the leader of Team Heat Lighting. "Lance told me that he's going to be busy with Kena for a while, so he told me to just go with you alone, I hope you don't mind Czar."
Czar looked behind him and saw Molly preparing some lemonade as well as making a few treats for some reason. He then looked back at Tyra and smiled, "Yeah I don't mind Tyra. Molly's going to be busy as well, some of her friends from overseas are going to visit her, and of course knowing her she would shoo me away to avoid me embarrassing her." Tyra and Czar laugh for a bit before heading off to Tao to pick up the seeds from Mike.
When Molly saw them headed off, she waited for a few more minutes to make sure the coast was clear. After the few minutes passed on by and, seeing that Czar and Tyra didn't forget anything, Molly headed up to her room and began to write a letter to Lance of Team Heat Lightning stating that the coast was clear. While writing she giggles at her writing style: compared to Czar's writing style it was more refined and royal:
"Dearest Lance of Team Heat Lightning,
I am writing to you to report that the DnP household is Charmander and Charmeleon free. Henceforth we can commence operation "Day of Remembrance" for young Tyra. I am currently preparing refreshments for the hourly activities we are about to engage in, and I hope that our household is adequate enough for your plans. Hope to hear from you soon!
With best Regards,
Molly "Fa'luna" Zuichi.
With her feather quill placed gently back into the ink, she grabbed a candle and firmly pressed the wax onto the end of the envelope; sealing it. Then, climbing up to the observation deck, she placed it on to the nest labeled "Outbox", and saw the Pidove deliver the letter back to Lance.
Within the next minute, the pidove returned back and handed Molly the reply letter, however when she opened it...
Can you um... say that again in english?
Molly did a face fault and wrote on the back of the letter.
"Just come over,
