jncera asked: Wally suddenly tripped, reached out but grabbed nothing but leaves, and fell backwards down the hill. His stomach turned on itself over and over until his face finally settled on the muddy riverbank. "Go hiking, she said. It'll be fun, she said," he muttered as he wiped his face.
He staggered out of the mess and looked up at the sky, resigning himself to his fate. He would die in the woods- alone, covered in mud, with an intense craving for barbecue flavored chicken whizzies. The end was near.
He stared up at the hill he now had to climb all over again before he pulled his phone from his pocket. The battery warning flashed 1% before the screen went dark. Perfect. Wally pouted after he stuffed the phone back into his pocket. He let out a rough sigh.

"You really should have."
I just Wonder Traded and got a damn shiny Koffing.
…too bad I don’t like Koffing. T_T
