During a cold dark stormy night, me and my buddy, a shiny Zorua by the name of,Julius, are walking through our home town, Tao Village, which we haven't been in in a while since our parents, who traveled together, were nomads. We didn't really get to see or meet many, but we met some, good and bad, but that doesn't matter right now! This was the day that we were going to join the rescue guild and make our dreams come true. Though we didn't expect it to rain, and our forms got wet, but I'm sure that whoever it is that works with forms can read it.
"Ugh! Of all the times, it chooses now to rain!" Julius complained as we made our way around, heading to hopefully the rescuers guild. I was just hoping that we didn't go to the wrong one, since the map was starting to ruin in the rain and I don't want to sign up as a rogue or merchant. I feel a tree in front of me, and look up to see lights. I whistle to Julius to let him know that we found it. We then walked up the path to the front door and knocked. We knock multiple times, waiting in between each one for at least 10 seconds, and about the umpteenth time we are about to knock, a gray Ninetales with some inkfilled tail tips, open the door.
"Come in, come in! My goodness, come in! I can't believe you've all been waiting outside in the rain all this time! You could have knocked earlier, you know!" he said.
"Are you kidding?" Julius said, "We've been knocking for 2 minutes! Why I oughta-" I put my paw up and shake my head as a sigh that it isn't worth it.
My name is Callahan, or Calla, for short. I'm the guild registrar, you know. I'm quite good at it!
"My name is-" Julius started but was cut off.
Oh, please allow me to take your belongings, they're all wet! I'll just hang them in front of the fireplace to dry as we go over the formalities. And the paperwork, of course! There will be a lot of that, don't you worry one bit! You do have the forms that we've mailed you filled out, yes? That does always make things go much quicker here.
I decided to give him my bag and blue scarf I got from Snowy Village since it was drenched. Julius gave him his black bandana, which you can't really see on him anyway. Calla snatches them from us and hangs them up quickly and carelessly, but nothing damaged. As for the paperwork
we got them, but
What's this? These forms are soaking wet.. and the ink has run! Goodness, we're in for a lot more paperwork than I could have hoped to dream of!
"It's not that bad." Julius said as he takes a look at it. "Oh
never mind." I facepaw. I hope he doesn't make a bad impression to this Ninetales.</b>
No matter, I have spare forms, and all the time in the world! I trust you have no pressing appointments yet, so I'll write down your information now. With your help, of course.
I sighed from this. That paperwork took too long to do and now we have to get it done AGAIN! Julius made the outburst, "You've got to be kidding me!"
Let's get right down to it, shall we? My fastest time for entering a team in the official guild registrar is a touch under a few hours; let's see if we can break the record!
All right now.. names, please?
"Rez," I said, first thing I said since I got out the house on our way over here. See, I'm not someone to talk. I say a word here and there to people I don't know, but if I trust you, I'll still talk little, but I'll talk more.
"My name's Julius." Julius said, trying to calm down.
Ahh.. what.. commo- er, good names you all have! How do you spell them?
I heard him slip when he was about to say common, but he corrected himself, so I didn't mind. "R-E-Z." I said.
"J-U-L-I-U-S," Julius said calmly, assuming he didn't hear the slip.
Interesting spelling! Are you foreign? French, perhaps? Ah, no, forget it, France is just made up here, you know. Often used as comic relief. Er, just forget that.
Me and Julius just looked at each other, both confused, obviously meaning, no.
What alias do you wish to give you lot of fellows? I hope it's something good! I've been so bored by Pokemon insisting to use a name like "Team Awesome" or anything of the sort. More like "Team Mediocrity," I like to think! I'm sure you have a much more original name.
Let me think. Team Darkaura
Team Aura Illusions
Team Illusive Aura
no. I got it! "NightAura," I said smiling under the blue winter scarf.
I knew you wouldn't let me down! Is that the normal spelling, or do you insist on losing letters, or replacing them altogether entirely?
I shake my head for no.
And.. done. All right! Next topic!
You there, lad! You seem to be the leader of the team, here. Why don't you tell me about yourself? Please make it interesting! I'm not filing a police report, you know. I don't get paid for this, either. I do it for the stories people tell! Everyone has a story! (Some are better than others, though. That's for sure..) However, I do hope yours isn't filled to the brim with angst and darkness, you know. We have enough of that as it is with the recent crises we've been going through!
I know he's talking about me, so I guess I'll say something. Right as I inhale, "Rez, I know you're leader, but let me talk since I know you don't like talking," Julius said, smiling. I look at him and smile at his consideration. Julius started. "Me and Rez have been together for as long as we can remember since our fathers were together in a team. However, we were never really able to get much combat experience until we went to Snowy Village to train. We then got stronger, but we're nothing special, only level 15 I think. However, we know some moves we can use to be effective here. We're both 5 years old, and anxious to get started.
What an enchanting tale! I can see why you'd probably like to join the Rescuers! Very well, then! It seems I have all I need in order to register you here in our peaceful Tao Village! Just to make sure all the facts are correct, please look over them and sign your initials at the bottom! Don't forget to sign off on your belongings! You wouldn't believe how many people forget their accessories, only to leave them here with me! (Please don't do that, I have so many things cluttering up my attic in dusty old boxes..)
I nodded and looked at the paper. I struggled getting a grip of the a pen to Write with, so then I started.

What's that, you say? There are only two of you? Of course I know that! I do have eyes, you know! What if, during your travels, you decide to recruit, or add on an extra member to your team? Would you really want them to fill out all this paperwork from scratch? There's no problem with me for that, I assure you! This is just a convenient foresight! There is only room enough for four signatures on here, though, so please, no more members than that!
I sigh in relief. Finally, we're done. I nod in understanding from Callahan that we should only have 4 members. Julius said, "Thank goodness..."
Well, now! I don't think I'll keep you here any longer, I have everything I need from you! I haven't broken any records for time tonight, though. Your story took up quite a bit of it! (Thankfully, it didn't put me to sleep.. it's happened before). Oh well! Time to conclude our business here!
He pushes us out hurriedly. Well now me and my partner are back in the rain, which has lightened up
wait, a drop on my nose? OH CRAP! WE LEFT OUR STUFF! I knock on the door again, and Callahan answers, however he already has it and gives it to us, says good night, and closes the door. "So what now?" Julius asked me. I look at him and say, "Let's go home," and started walking down the path, thus me and Julius will have fun, working for our goal.
