"Th-they nearly wiped out my h-hometown..." Gen said, clutching tighter onto Koa.
At that, Wallace's heart dropped. He knew firsthand how powerful the wrath of the gods were: Gourádon could cause droughts that brought famine to Sootopolis City and destroyed their livelihood and economy, and Kaióga could sweep away one's parents on a whim...

But such was a world where both fed on Sin. All he could do was appease the gods. All he could do was be perfect for them.

"Gen... I'm very sorry to hear that." Wallace swallowed. "Do you... Do you want a hug?"

"Gen... I'm very sorry to hear that." Wallace swallowed. "Do you... Do you want a hug?"
"...y-yeah, I w-would," Gen said, his trembling subsiding slightly. "Th-thanks."

"Th-they nearly wiped out my h-hometown..." Gen said, clutching tighter onto Koa.
Koa swallowed uncomfortably. "I'm so sorry Gen." Anger boiled beneath his sadness. How many times would history repeat itself?

"I-it was...th-the second scariest part of my l-life. Almost as scary as..."

Six Years Ago said:
Alone alone alone alone alone where was everyone why weren’t they coming no matter how loud he screamed he wanted to go home he wanted to go home he was alone he was all alone.

The Oshawott whimpered as he trailed off, memories rushing through his head.

"...y-yeah, I w-would," Gen said, his trembling subsiding slightly. "Th-thanks."
Wallace picked up Gen and hugged him like he would hug a small child. He stared into space, gently patting the back of Gen's head as he tried to compose himself. He couldn't cry. He couldn't cry. The past was scary, and the future was as well. All that was certain was the present: A person holding an Oshawatt, a person singing a song of old to a Pokémon:

"To astéri lámpei sto paidí
"fos kai kýmata thanátou
"ákouge to paidí Tzirachi
"ákouge i efchí Tzirachi"


Wallace was once a little boy, an anxious, terrified little boy who needed nothing more than a hug and love and acceptance. And now here was a boy just like him, anxious and terrified, who needed nothing more than a hug and love and acceptance.

An ajar door appeared near the back of the group. Beyond it, each person in the White Void could see where they were before they had come to this place.

"Looks like our time is up. Thanks for joining, everyone," Zinnia said, looking across the crowd. Noticeably, her gaze turned to a glare as she glanced at Dorien. "Head through the Door to return to your worlds."

"Aww, but nobody asked me a question!" Jean said, ears drooping. She looked at Gen and smiled. "I hope you and Saltriv will be okay!"

Dave glanced at Koa before returning his gaze to Zinnia. "I guess we're forgetting everything again, huh?" he asked. "Back to regular life, no idea any of this happened until next time you interdimensional psychopaths feel like toying with us?"

Gen smiled back at Jean. "Th-thanks. I h-hope we can meet again s-sometime."

"Hey, I tried to let you reunite! It's not my fault the Overseers have a vendetta against multiversal memories!" the human || Bagon protested. "And for the record, just between you and me, I don't like them either."

With the appearance of the door, the slumbering Kora started to stir and wake. She pushed herself up from the ground, stretching out her arms and yawning before smacking her lips. It looked like time was up, unfortunately. "Aw man..." Kora grumbled, then with a snap of her fingers and a shadowy cloud of energy, Kora reverted back to his normal, Zoroark form. He kept the dress though... and the mask.

"Well shoot, I didn't even get to embarrass myself," Vix said, sarcastic. "At least I got to relax for... however long this was." The Chandelure turned to Dave and Koa, smiling slightly. "And I got to see some of my old friends again, so... Honestly I'd say this trip was a plus."

"And I got to see this really wicked dress," Kora chirped, twirling in a circle and snickering. "Safe to say I ain't ever seen anything like this back in my world! Hehe, I wonder if I can make anyone jealous!"

As everyone filed out the Door, Zinnia smiled. This was fun! She should do this again sometime.

The human || Bagon took one last look around the park. It'd begin disappearing any minute now.

As she disappeared back to the reality she was the Voice of, she wondered what the White Void would be like next time.
