Me: Who hasn't felt out of place? Well that sounds like a cave to avoid unless it has cable and internet.
It was nighttime. The wind was blowing rather strongly at the base of Mt. Horn. In a small, rarely traveled-by part of the mountain, was a bunch of rocks that looked a little out of place. The reason was that those rocks had fallen from the top of the mountain, closing the entrance of a cave inside. A cave that had no exit.
Me: Well duh after all it is a cave. Are you going to eat him?
Inside the cave was only darkness. Except for one source of light, a faint flame that was coming from the tail of a Charizard. It was rolled up, holding an adult man protectively close to its belly.
Me: Called it. I'm thinking he's afraid of the monster that's eating him slowly piece by piece.
The man had only one arm. His other arm and both of his legs were missing. He was asleep, but the Charizard was awake. It stared at the man with worry and sadness in its eyes, almost as if it was afraid of something.
Eventually, what the Charizard feared happened. Its stomach rumbled, making a loud noise. It flinched and closed its eyes. The man woke up and yawned weakly.
Me: Ruby you've been a very bad Charizard.
"Ruby...?" he called out to his Pokémon. The Charizard replied reluctantly.
Me: Is he feeding her part by part? Why doesn't Ruby find a way out of the cave?
"Are you hungry, girl?" the man asked as he brought his only arm up and stroked the Charizard's head gently. Ruby flinched again and quickly shook her head, denying her hunger.
However, her stomach betrayed her by rumbling loudly once more. The man simply smiled.
"Come on...You don't have to lie. I already told you, you must tell me if you're hungry." Ruby kept shaking her head, trying to say that she was not hungry.
"Don't worry...It's alright," the man said, trying to comfort her, petting her head. Ruby hugged her trainer, her eyes becoming watery.
Me: Stop making her eat you. That's fucking twisted.
"Ruby, if you don't eat, you'll starve," the man whispered. Ruby only seemed to be more unsettled. She began crying a little.
"Please don't cry...You have to eat," he said, sighing a little. He stroked her head again.
"I won't be able to pet you anymore, but...I can still show you affection another way," he said, reaching up and kissing the Charizard's forehead. "Now, please, you have to eat."
The man shuffled a little so that he was "standing" up with what was left of his body. He extended his arm and placed it right in front of Ruby, who only stared at it with sadness and tear-filled eyes.
Me: You're so lying. Of course it's going to hurt when she rips off another body part to eat. Are you insane? I guess I don't really need to ask that question.
"Please, Ruby...I promise that it won't hurt me," he said, smiling. He had already gone through this three times, so this one wasn't going to be any different.
"Ch...Charizard..." Ruby cried out, shaking her head. The man simply moved his arm closer to her.
"You must eat." With that, Ruby gave up. She closed her eyes and silently cried as she opened her mouth. The man placed his arm between her large fangs.
Trying to make it as fast as she could, Ruby closed her mouth and in a swift motion bit off a part of the man's arm completely. The man winced and tried to maintain himself in place. Tears kept flowing down Ruby's face as she chewed her trainer's arm, the only food she had in that cave.
"Argh...G-good girl..." he said, smiling despite the pain.
Me: Why is he smiling? I'd be screaming. Come on Ruby do something. You can't just stay in that cave eating your trainer piece by piece.
Once Ruby was finished eating, she quickly snuggled closer to her trainer and hugged what was left of him, which was now only his body and his head. He was breathing hard, but he was still smiling all the way.
"Are...are you full now?" he asked simply. Ruby hugged him tighter and nodded, weeping.
"Good..." he said, looking at her saddened face.
"Ruby," he began, looking into her eyes, "I promise...I promise we'll...we'll."
The man stopped there, and didn't say anything for a few seconds, before correcting himself.
"I promise you'll make it out of here."
Ruby cried. She knew what he meant by that. She cried and cried, hugging her trainer tightly.
Long after the man had gone back to sleep to conserve what little energy he still had, Ruby kept crying. She cried harder than she ever had before.
Me: Yep she'd finish him off. I don't get why Ruby didn't try to get out of the cave. She's not a tiny little Pokemon.
She cried, because she knew what would happen the next time she got hungry...
