With the Saplings and the Bag of seeds in Czar and Tyra's possession, the two Chars walked to the Creeping Forest to plant the saplings that would become the new trees of Creeping Forest. Then afterwards they would plant the seeds and berries to make it a little more Greener. Strange enough, creeping forest; as dark and rather haunting, as it wouldn't be the same after the terraformation Jasmine would do. It would be more luscious with green bushes and tall healthy trees, giving it a vibrant aura of earth to flow through the land. Then again it's right next to Castle Draclugia so the castle may give the Creeping forest its dark vibe it has.
Nevertheless, Czar and Tyra made it there with little to no effort in their part of their walk. To them it was a rather enjoyable walk since the summer sun's rays were quite harsh, making it quite the hot day In Tao, as the fire-types enjoyed the heat it gave; it seemed to escalade up to the triple digits, even then it gave numerous Pokémon problems because of how hot the temperatures are, they seem to be dropping like flies. (Granted, there's no fly Pokémon yet.) Czar Looked around to spot any familiar faces, to his dismay, he only spotted the Star Seekers and Team Pecha going through and uprooting the old trees of Creeping Forest.
"Hm, looks like they already beat us here." Tyra Pointed towards the two teams that were working on uprooting the trees. The two Golurks were working together uprooting the old stumps of the creeping forest, then once after they pulled out the stump the smaller Pokémon; Amy and Tikay, began to plant the saplings for the new Creeping forest.
"Still though, we can work on the inside; plant the bushes and all, we'll just give these saplings to the two teams outside, that way we don't have to work the two jobs." Nodding in agreement, Czar and Tyra head towards to the two teams so they can give them their saplings while the two Chars work on getting the bushes on the ground.
Czar and Tyra engaged in a conversation for both Team Pecha, and Team Star Seekers, they agreed that they would take the saplings for them to plant, in the condition that they would take their seeds in exchange. Czar groaned inside but had to do what they offered, he hoped to save time so he can make it back to his home; he remembered he had something to do later on the day. [Okay, this may be cutting it close, but at least I can make it if I use Dragon Dance to hurry my actions.] While they talked to them, Darren and Glacier used as much strength as they could to try and lift up the tree stump, to their dismay however, it was too heavy for them to lift so they had to stop before anything broke.
"I'm sorry Master Amy, but this inanimate object loves its partner so much, it doesn't want to let go." Darren explained to Amy in a monotone voice, "However It shows how caring this inanimate object is, so I'm not going to complain about that to respect its decisions."
Amy looked on to the Golurk and just smiled; she closed her eyes and pets the leg of Darren. "It's okay… At least you tried your best, "[and you're still calling me master…] she looked on over to the other Golurk and Will, all tired and plumbed out.
"Ah, Mr. Glacier, are you okay?" Will looked up to Glacier with a sense that, maybe he's doing something wrong. The Golurk shook her head and replied with. "I'm fine, it just seems that this half doesn't want to co-operate with me." Glacier gave it a focus punch to deal with it, however he was only able to move it slightly to the right, as it left a spot where something thin; like a stick, or a piece of metal, can be fitted.
Czar noticed that they were having some trouble with uprooting said trees; he tilted his head and crossed his arms, with his right claw covering his mouth. [Hm… what's going on over there?] He took a step to the right and saw the rest of the group trying to move that one stump, however it doesn't seem to bulge one bit. Curious at this, Czar and Tyra walked on over to the two teams as they tilted their heads.
Amy saw the two Pokémon and walked up to them, as she tapped on Czar's shoulder since he's the smallest and can't seem to reach Tyra. "Excuse me, but who might you two be?" Amy asked the both of them. She never saw Czar or Tyra before so she doesn't know that they're part of the objective.
"Oh hello there, you mean us right? We're from the Rescuer's branch in Tao. I'm I… Just call me Czar, I'm Czar Kaze, and with me is a friend from another team: Heat lightning. Her name is Tyra." Czar explained to Amy, as Tyra waved back. "It's nice to meet you!" Czar added in while he smiled and placed one hand out for her.
"Oh it's good to meet you too! I'm Amy, Leader of Team Pecha; with me is Chikorita the, well… Chikorita," She giggled a bit before continuing on. "...and the Golurk over there is Darren. Say hello Darren!" Amy requested the action to him.
"Affirmative, Master Amy." After the Golurk replied to Amy, she just sighed and rolled her eyes a bit. "I am Unit 301; a giant flying robot, I've come here under direct orders from Kyurem to assist and protect Master Amy and her friend from harm. I am humbled and honored to meet your acquaintance."
Even though the Golurk is polite to them, he just befuddled Tyra, as she tried to take in what the Pokémon said to the both of them. Czar however… he's always interested in terms of anything doing with industry such as Weapon Crafting, Material refining, and Futuristic Engineering. Most of the decorations he made; other than the paintings and most of the wooden furniture are inside their base, and even though they're shoddy at times, he puts his heart and soul into making such candle holders and ceramic pots.
"Unit 301, Kyurem?" Tyra murmured to herself.
"Giant flying robot?!" Czar became starry-eyed and examined the Golurk as a whole. His eyes wavered throughout the mechanics and the aesthetics of the Pokémon. However he then shook his head as he derogated from the main task. He shortly got on the ball and looked upon the tree stump; the one they can't seem to pull away. "Hm… Hey, mind if I help you with this?" Czar looked at the stump and analyzed the situation. "Hm… I need a Shovel; does anyone here have a shovel?" Czar asked everyone around him. Tyra didn't have a shovel, neither did Darren, Chikorita, Amy, will, Tikay, and Gabi, Glacier came back with a shovel though and gave it to Czar, or more of tossed it to him while trying to say "Here," only to have it warped.
"Um… Thanks I guess." Czar scratched his head in confusion, but nonetheless held on to the shovel and placed it to the little indent they were able to make. "Okay, now stand back." He smiled upon saying that and firmly stood on the ground. From there he steadily breathed in and out as he used Dragon Dance to further strengthen his strength and speed. The three teams were curious about whatever the little Charmander's doing.
"Hey, what's that Charmander doing?" Will looked at the Charmander dancing and gazed at his dance moves. Amy answered Will's question, by replying. "Hm… Looks like Dragon Dance, but in a way it's not interrupted; like a full on Dance!"
Tyra looked on over to Amy after her answer and looked back at Czar. [A Dragon Dance without interruptions? How does that go into play when it comes to battle, does it only power up only once, or all six?]
Czar finished his dance and was brimming with power. It became to the point where every time he moved, there was an after-image of him, as well as a wild purple aura that flowed through his body. At times, when in certain situations, Dragon Dance may manifest into an Aura Dragon, that in which it will affect his moves in a way. He can use Combos while in this state and uses the Aura Dragon to start up combos. Staring into the shovel and the tree stump, Czar looked around and saw that everyone was in safe distance.
"Okay here it goes!" Czar ran away from the shovel and the stump, and then he runs forward towards said shovel and stump, and doing a triple jump. On the second to last jump, an aura dragon escaped from Czar's body and augmented itself with his claws; turning it into metal. Then on the last jump, he took one mighty leap and shouted out. "Tailow Dive!" At the apex of his jump, he entered a "Diving position" with his claws out front, as his tail flame burned with such intensity, and with a Draconic roar, he smashed into the shovel; sending the tree stump sky-rocketing in the air.
Czar realized this and thought that he took it a little too far with his Dragon Dance, and was worried about their reactions. So in a hurry, he grabbed Tyra's Claw and high-tailed it out of there. Amy looked up and smiled, [Oh man, it looked like it's able to reach into space!] However, to her dismay the tree stump landed back in the same position. However they can at least continue with their work. [Aw… phooey.]
Czar and Tyra laughed it up with what they did as they moved on to the center of the forest to help plant said bushes. Even though it was a hot day, and they had an over-abundance of berries and seeds, they were able to do their missions with little to no trouble at all. Once they were planted, Czar and Tyra had to wait for Jasmine to give the okay and from there, they can leave. However Jasmine's going to be a little late; tending to the rest of the Pokémon that are planting trees, while helping them out because of the temperatures. Czar had to slip away from Tyra because he's going to be late with whatever he needed to finish. So he asked Tyra if he can meet up with him on the hill next to Tao Woods. Tyra agreed, if only he explained what he needs to do.
Czar explained that he needed to cook for an event later with him and his friends, and that she's invited, as well as the rest of her team. Hearing this, she agreed to it and waited for Jasmine to appear while Czar fled back to where ever he needed to go.
Late at night, Czar met up with Tyra again on top of the hill next to Tao Woods. Looking up and above the night sky, they were rather awestruck on how big and blue the moon was, Czar Loved the moon and it's beauty, it looks amazing when there's water around and Pokémon like him always looked down onto the water, it gave off a peaceful vibe in the dark as well as a sense of safety as it offered a dim light source. When Czar came back to Tyra, he held a picnic basket in his hand and offered Tyra a sandwich or two.
With that, the two ate together under the moon, as they looked over the progress of terraforming Tao. Even though the land was still scarred, and it looked desolate, it is recovering slowly. He knew that the process wasn't done, and that he'll have to work with Tyra again. However, in honestly, Czar doesn't mind really. In fact, after what happened in the last mission. He can never seem to let go of her, it's like either he enjoyed Tyra's company, glad that they're good friends, or perhaps something developed inside Czar that he can't describe.
After the two finished eating, they began to talk away. Czar explained that the event hasn't started yet, that they have plenty of time to talk until they had to eventually head on over. The two went on really, about their adventures, their history, how they met up with their partners, you know facts relating to work in Tao.
After breaking the ice, Czar eventually gulped in and let curiosity take its toll. "Um… Tyra… Can I ask you something?" Czar asked Tyra while trying to hide the small blush he had. "Ah, yeah sure, what's the question about?" After getting this Close, Czar shook a bit and ingested some juice, as he mustered up as much courage as he can. "Um… by any chance, do you have someone you love?"
Tyra looked upon the small Charmander and tilted her head. "Love?" Tyra retorted back to Czar. "Um… well I love my father; he used to be a great rescuer back before we were born. He taught me everything I know, and saw the best in me. He pushed me to become a great Pokémon, and to this day I still take those lessons and training sessions to heart." Tyra looked up to the blue moon, as she went on. "However, I don't really know my mother very well; she left us alone, for reasons I don't know. But I think my father took it hard. Maybe that's why he's training me, so that one day I can find my mother again, and we can be together; as one happy family."
Czar didn't quite get the answer he was hoping for, but at least he knows a little more about Tyra and her parents. "Ah well, it shows; you're a really strong Tyra Charmeleon, perhaps stronger than me of course." Czar chuckled to himself, as he took the cup of juice and sipped on the straw.
"…but you almost sent that tree stump into orbit." Tyra rebounded to Czar, upon hearing that he choked on his juice and coughed a bit while he pounded his chest to breathe. "That- that's different Tyra; I used Dragon Dance to power myself up, so that's not the case. What I am trying to-"Czar coughed some of the juice up as he went on from that. "I'm sorry, what I am trying to say is that. Tyra, you're strong because you have natural strength and talent, I just rely on a move to boost my speed and strength. But that doesn't mean that I'm not strong." Czar looked towards to Tyra and Smiled while he too, looked at the big moon.
"Because True strength doesn't lie within muscles, technique, or hours of studying, where it truly lies, is right here." Czar pointed towards the upper left portion of his chest. "It lies within the heart, the courage and determination, to protect the ones you love and care for, that's where my strength is; my heart. To me and to others, it's the heart of a dragon." Czar looked towards to Tyra and walked up to her. "But Tyra, you can have the heart of a dragon too. Just keep your bravery and courage up, and the desire to protect your friends."
After saying that, Tyra only smiled and hugged the small charmander. The hug felt like a short while for Tyra, but for Czar though, he wanted this to last as long as they can. It was right there and then, beyond Czar's stubbornness to admit it, but he had a crush on Tyra. He won't admit it though unless he's ready, after all he's still young and have missions to take. But right now; he's glad that she's around to help him. After the hug, they realized that they spent too much time, and that they're going to be late.
"Heh, come on Tyra, let's go to that event now." The two cleaned up any mess they made, and stretched from sitting down for too long, Czar's legs almost felt numb as he had some trouble getting up. Once ready and able, they set back to Tao Woods, and Czar's Base.
Once at the front door, Czar explained to Tyra that the door lock on the outside's busted, so he'll have to go in first and open the door from the other side. As Tyra patiently waited outside, she gazed at the Waterfall and the roaring waters.
Eventually Czar appeared from the door and lead Tyra in. It was kinda dark and rather quiet for some reason, the receiving hall and living room had an unnerving vibe to it, it's like someone's planning an ambush or a surprise.
It was the latter…
"Surprise!!!" Party Poppers were released! Lights were being turned on! Sounds of clapping were heard! And at the end of it all, Czar and Lance were standing in front of the Cake that sat on the kitchen!
To her dismay, it was Tyra's Birthday, and with it, Czar and Lance planned a surprise birthday party for her.
"Oh my… What's this?!" Tyra was in awe at the fact that most of her friends were here, even her own father! However, when she put two and two together, her face lit up as she had the widest smile in her face.
"Happy Birthday Tyra, hope you don't mind the little scare we may had gave you." Lance chuckled, as he gave Tyra her birthday hat. "But yeah, me and Czar planned this out for you Tyra, you see… I asked you if you can go with Czar only, as I had to take care of Kena right? Well what REALLY happened was, after you left to plant trees, Molly and Czar allowed us to use their base as a place to plan out your surprise birthday party. So while you and Czar went off to plant bushes and such, me and Molly; alongside Kena, Rita, and Lilith, helped decorate for the party.
"You mean you guys did all of this for me?" Tyra's face was gleaming, as she went to the two Pokémon and wrapped their heads on her arms. "Oh, thank you so much guys! I love it!" The Trio laughed it up and smiled. "Well, it's the least I can do, for a wonderful leader, and great friend." Lance answered back while Czar looked towards her friends and party-goers. "Heh, well even though the surprise is over, the night's still young, let's get the party started!" Tyra stopped and looked towards to Lance and Czar. "Alright!" The two nod as everyone began to dig in.
As the night went on, Czar himself confirmed that he had a Crush on Tyra; however he himself kept it a secret, away from everyone else. It's better not to say until he's more comfortable to admitting it. That and the fact that he needs to evolve into a Chameleon to make the relationship more meaningful. He'll want to confess his love to Tyra one day, but for now he's happy with the life he has. The next day though he'll have to go back to help with the Terraformation, with it he'll be co-operating with the full team of Heat Lightning, as well as Molly. But for now, he'll remember this day the most; even If it's miniscule. After all, when he does accomplish his goal, he'll always be remembering the little things that made up to one big unforgettable memory.
