The Three Riddles"Before I leave tomorrow, I want to give you guys something for the concert..." May explains as she gives Max, Norman, and Caroline a concert ticket and a red lightstick.The Three Riddles by LightningTopaz
"Nice, I got one too even though I'm coming with you!" Max smiles as he begins unwrapping the lightstick.
"Don't snap it yet--wait until the concert tomorrow night." May giggles.
"We like seeing those as we play, so if you see your sister and Dawn waving their hands a certain way, wave the lightstick that way." Brock explains.
Max grins. "I'm sure the drummer gets the best view...."
"As the drummer, I will admit I get the best view of everything." Brock smiles. "You have not lived until you've seen a sea of red waving as Ash sings..."
"We'd be honored to hear you all play." Norman smiles.
"I'll come by the Gym too, so you can see my new team!" May assures Norman.
Caroline looks at the clock. "You have a few more minutes, Maestro...so make it fast." she tells Brock.
"In a certain village lived a mother and her on
The Forest Spirit"Out of all the stories you tell, I like princess ones the best." May smiles. "Especially if the one that wins her is a commoner!"The Forest Spirit by LightningTopaz
"A princess story, huh?" Brock thinks a moment, then begins "There was once a king who had a great forest near his palace, full of all kinds of wild Pokemon. One day, he sent out a huntsman to shoot him a Sawsbuck, but he did not come back. 'Perhaps something happened to him,' thought the king, and the next day he sent out two more huntsmen to were to look for him, but they too disappeared. Then on the third day, he sent for all his huntsmen, and said..."
"Search the whole forest from top to bottom, and do not give up until you have found them all." he instructs as the king.
He intones as himself "But even these were never seen again."
"W-what was taking them?" Max stammers.
"From that time on, no one would dare venture into the forest, and it lay there in deep stillness and solitude, save for the odd Braviary or Talonflame flying over it." Brock explains.
The Magic of Jewels"I have to ask you...how come magic jewels keep appearing in your stories?" Caroline asks Brock.The Magic of Jewels by LightningTopaz
"Most of the time, it's for adaptation reasons--I've found some really strange ways of invoking magic in tales." Brock explains. "But sometimes, that's just how the magic is invoked to begin with. This next one--the first ever 'magic jewels' story I learned--is one of those 'it's invoked that way to begin with' stories."
With that, he begins "Once upon a time, there lived an old man who had only one son, whom he loved dearly; but they were very poor, and often had hardly enough to eat. Then the old man got very sick, and things grew worse than ever, so he called his son--we'll call him Allan--and said to him..."
"My dear boy, I have no more food left to give you, so you must go into the world and get it for yourself." he instructs as an older man. "It does not matter what work you do, but remember if you do it well and are faithful to your master, you will always have your reward."
Kanade and the River Demon"You all know that Kanade was one of the most famous mikos and heroines to serve the Great Lord Arceus." Brock begins.Kanade and the River Demon by LightningTopaz
Norman and Caroline nod in agreement as he goes on "But the one thing that pained her the most was the pain, suffering, and death which humankind was apparently doomed to endure. It didn't matter who you were--the greatest sage with great virtue and millions of teachings, a righteous or an evil person, or even a mere child--everyone suffered from one thing or another."
He quickly assures his antsy audience "But this was why Kanade and millions of other priests and mikos devoted themselves to Arceus--to at least ease the suffering of the world, if not end it outright."
Some applause goes up in agreement."Now, Kanade's devotion to Arceus was so great, he commanded two Legendaries to travel with her and help her battle against evil spirits." Brock explains. "Mew and Jirachi."
When he returns to his chsir, he goes on "So one day, Kanade took it upon herself to travel acros
