The man in the red mask ran at Michael, he rolled his eyes and crouched. Michael caught the guy's leg and lifted up, sending him face first into the dirt. The other thief grabbed a knife and tried to stab him. Michael grabbed just below the wrist and brought the arm to the top of his shoulder. The thief dropped the knife and begged, "P-please I-i'll leave you alone." Michael closed his eyes and replied, "I can't let you just leave, you haven't learned your lesson." Michael brought his arms down, breaking the thief's arm at the elbow. Michael brought his right leg up and spun around, using the momentum to land a solid kick to the side of his head.
The other masked thief ran away and Michael sighed. He looked around and then grabbed Heat's ball. "Come back out bud." Michael mumbled, releasing a red beam from the ball and setting his friend free. Heat shook it's body and unruffled it's feathers. He chirped happily to see Michael was fine and there wasn't any danger. "I'm glad that's over." Michael let out a sigh and sat against a near by tree. His stomach growled and Heat chirped. "See, this is why you eat breakfast." Michael laughed and got to his feet. He grabbed his bag and remembered he already searched it. "Oh crap, we're gonna have to go find somewhere to grab a bite." Michael muttered. He picked Heat up and put him on his shoulder. Michael began walking back to town when he heard a scream. "Food can wait, someone needs help. Wow, never thought I'd be one to say that." Michael spoke to Heat and began running towards the scream. A girl about fourteen or maybe fifteen was clutching onto a purse a masked man was trying to steal.
"Haven't I beaten enough of you idiots today?" Michael shouted, making himself known. This mask was pink and the guy was bigger then Michael. "If I do say so myself, Pink is very befitting for you." Michael taunted, trying to force all attention on him. Don't be stupid, this is how your brother died. Michael thought to himself. The brute let go of the purse, sending the girl backwards onto her back. "You better hope blood is a good color on you kid." The brute cracked his neck and started to walk towards Michael. "Blood isn't a color, but nice try." Michael continued to mock him, "If you want there is a preschool back in Hoen, I'm sure they could teach you the rainbow." Michael put Heat on the ground behind him and looked over at the girl. Heat nodded and started running towards her. The brute looked at Heat, just like Michael planned. "FLYING KICK BITCH!" Michael shouted running at the masked guy. He jumped off the ground and landed a kick to his chest, then his face. Michael used the momentum from the kicks to flip backwards and land on his feet. Michael walked over to Heat and the mystery girl and helped her up.
"Thank you for helping me." She smiled at him. Michael smiled back and replied, "No problem, these idiots weren't to much trouble for me." The girl brushed herself off and started walking back to town. Michael's stomach growled again and he silently swore under his breath. The girl turned around and laughed, "if you want I could treat you to some lunch, it'd be the least I could do after you helped me." Michael picked Heat up and nodded, "Thanks, I'm Michael by the way, and this is Heat." Michael introduced the duo and Heat added a chirp. "I'm Lexie, nice to meet you." Se replied and lead them to a small little restaurant. They were seated and Michael ordered a Burger and a plate of sweet and spicy Pokeblocks. Lexie ordered a chicken salad. "So you mentioned Hoen a little bit ago right? Are you from Hoen?" Lexie asked as they waited for their food. Michael nodded and replied, "I'm from Kanto, but I grew up in Hoen after my brother died. Thats how I met Heat, my dad gave him to me as a present, then they discovered Ichigo and I just had to adventure." Michael explained as he smelled the burger cooking and the sound of a Block Machine turning on. Heat chirped at the sound and nuzzled Michael's face. Lexie laughed and Michael smiled. "What can I say, Heat can't resist a Pokeblock." Michael laughed as they brought out their food.
After a few minutes of talking and eating they left. Lexie gave Michael her Xtransceiver number and headed home. Michael waved goodbye and started back out to the forest. "I can't believe crime rates have gone up." Michael mumbled to himself. "Kinda reminds me of when dad would tell me stories of that Team Aqua and Magma, I wonder if the same type of thing is going on here." Michael talked to himself walking through the forest. He set up his tent and cooked a can of food Lexie gave to him before he went off on his way. "Well bud, Tomorrow we'll hit the route for some training and we'll go get that badge!" Michael announced as he flung down his sleeping bag.
