"Latias, where do you think you're going this time?" The shorter white haired female, sneaking along down one of the long corridors of their large home stopped in her tracks, turning around to see the taller white haired male that was her brother looking at her with arms crossed and a stern gaze. This happened much too often than Latias wished. She herself, as a legendary anyway, was very sneaky. But, when living with other Legendaries who were just as sneaky, if not more sneaky, than herself, she tended to get caught doing things she shouldn't be doing more than she liked. And most of the time it was being caught trying to sneak out. The girl did her best to gave a smile, looking toward her brother as if he hadn't just caught her trying to sneak off again, "Oh, Latios, what a surprise. How is your morning going?" The young man crossed his arms, ignoring the pleasantries his sister was saying, "Latias, you know you shouldn't be wandering off on your own like this. Its one thing to hang around the halls and find something to do here. But, I know exactly where you're heading, and you know you aren't supposed to go there." "But brother, it's just once," Latias said, stepping up to her brother pleadingly, "Don't you want to see our home again? The great city of Altomar? The gardens there is where father raised us. I want to see it again. See him again." Well, what was left of him anyway, in the form of the Soul Dew, "You and I could go together, Latios. And then when we're done we can come right back here. What do you say?" A long sigh escaped her brother as he pinched the bridge of his nose, "Latias. You know I would love to see our home again. But...it's just too dangerous." He said, looking up to her, "While most Pokemon don't even believe we exist anymore, there are other Pokemon out there looking to harm the Legendaries. That look to kill us, Latias. And I will not lose you to that. Not like I did father." Letting out another sigh, he hugged the girl, then let go and nudged her back in the direction opposite of the room that held the way back to the mortal realm, "You'll understand when your older. Now, go back to your room and get some rest. It's getting late." Disappointment in her gaze, Latias made her way back to her room and lay in her bed, yet, sleep just didn't seem to come. It hadn't been coming easily for the past few nights. She continued to have dreams, of the mortal world. Of exploring it and learning more about it. She wanted to live out that dream. To see it all in person and not just in visions within sleep. The others couldn't understand the need she felt to do so. And that need to see that world once again was driving her more and more to go there and see it for herself. Just as it was now. It was night time now, nothing lighting the echoing halls of the prestigious mansion-like home the Legendaries shared besides the moon rays that came in through the windows. As quiet as can be, she moved through out the halls until she finally came to the room she was looking for. Opening up the heavy door, inside of the room, on the far wall, as a portal, ripping like a body a water. She was nervous. Extremely so. She hadn't been to the mortal world ever since she was a small child. Ever since the Great Flood of Altomar so many years ago. She was scared. But she knew this was something she had to do. If she didn't the she would never have any peace. And if she was going to do this, then she had to move quick, other wise one of the others would find her in this room and stop her. And so, taking a deep breath, the girl stepped through the portal. .... There was water everywhere. Latias was in the middle of a great body of water. This was familiar. She remembered swimming under the water to get to the portal, her older brother at her side helping her to do so. She had been just a child then. But now, she was older, and able to swim much better on her own. She swam upwards, until finally she surfaced, coming out of a rather large and deep lake. Walking onto the shore, she smiled brightly as she looked around. This place was hidden deep within the forest, not too far from her home town. She could go there, and see her home for herself, maybe even stay there for a while, should time permit. She was at least free to do as she wished until the others realized she was missing and came to find her. But...she couldn't be seen. Reminding herself of this, she used her powers turning invisible as she floated into the air and flew high over the trees, searching. Maybe if she found a disguise? Perhaps then she could stay longer without getting found by the others so soon. It was worth a shot. And so, continuing to fly a little ways, heading across the forest in the direction opposite of Altomar, until she found a small town, one much smaller than her home, but where she could surely find something to turn into. Flying low, she swept over the town, eyes searching until she saw a pokemon that peeked her interest. It was a short of ice Pokemon, selling cold drinks that he would make cold just by touching them. What was this pokemon called again? She had read about them before....oh, yes. A Glaceon. This one was male, but then again, weren't most Eeveelutions if what she read in books was correct? A Glaceon seemed interesting enough. She smiled, watching him closely and observing his actions, as well as his looks and abilities, before flying a little ways off with a smile on her face. Just outside of the town, she stopped and landed down near a small creek. Looking around to make sure no one was near by, she turned herself visible once more and looked down at her reflection, shifting appearances. It took a few tries to get it just right, as it was difficult to mimic an appearance of someone of opposite gender, yet make it her own gender. Finally though, she had it just right. Satisfied with her now Glaceon appearance, the girl made her way back into the village, looking around with curious eyes, not noticing the stares the rare female Eeveelution was getting as she walked by different stores and such, enjoying her time in this strange new mortal realm.
