It wasn’t everyday that Touko broke the rules, but after sitting in her dorm and stressing over homework all day it was time for a break. And so the brunette trainer decided to go for a swim. Changing from the annoyingly restraining school uniform into her usual shorts and tank top she grabbed her Pokeball and rushed from her dorm room to the school pool. She had only stolen glances at the enormous span of indoor water but decided that one day she would show it to her precious Mijumaru. And finally, now was the time.
Entering the pool with a grin, the brunette kicked off her boots and expanded her Pokeball before pointing it at the water, “Alright Mijumaru, I got a surprise for you!” she called, watching the red and white capsule open and the beam of light reaching to the water where the tiny blue and white creature appeared, bobbing in the pool with an excited squeal. Clapping her hands, Touko dove in after the otter and laughed excitedly, watching her companion zoom in circles under the waters surface.
It was the first time she’d been able” to relax since coming to the school and boy, did she need it. Homework and teachers and going to class every. Single. Day. It made her wish she had stayed home and just gone on her Pokemon journey. But she did like it here, despite the stress of — creak.
Touko stopped floating and stood upright in the pool looking around, her blue eyes wide. She had heard rumors about the hall monitors, and seeing that it was the middle of the night the trainer obviously wasn’t supposed to be there…
“Shit…Mijumaru, come on! We gotta go!” Touko called to her Pokemon who began swimming toward her quickly. Making her way to the side of the pool, the brunette pulled herself out and looked around, still wary when she heard a shuffle behind her and — was that a moan? Who the hell moans in the middle of the night?
Touko turned around, eyes wide and screamed, falling back in the pool at the sight before her: a student, judging by the tattered uniform staring down at her with its flesh beginning to fall from its face. Flailing to the surface for air, the girl screamed again as the horrid looking male took a step toward her. Spitting the water from her mouth, Touko turned to her Pokemon desperately, “Mijumaru!! Watergun!!” she cried and the Pokemon followed the action accordingly, but all did was push the creature back.
Splashing through the water, Touko grabbed the Mijumaru and hugged it close, turning around as another monster stumbled through the side door, and then another…and another, until the entire pool was surrounded by the rotting monsters.
“Oh my — s - someone help me!!!!!”
