how did you two meet?
Bird: Oh, it’s a bit of a long story… and not exactly a happy one, I’m afraid. But if you have the time..
When I was younger… ah, this must have been almost six years ago, at least! I.. had a mindset that no one could be trusted. That everyone was out to hurt me, especially.. other Latios. I never had much of a family, you see..
Bird: At least, I pretended I did.. I made myself prefer it to some degree. No one could hurt me if I had no one.
So I decided to settle down here in Clearview Forest, where I’ve lived since. There’s a lake nearby, and it generally gets too cold for anyone but feral pokes around here. It’s a quiet life, but requires border maintenance in case the ferals get too comfy..
Bird: Now, living as I did, bodies were not an uncommon occurrence.. but it was usually old guys. This one was young.. not far from my age. And he must’ve been there for a very long time, but he looked almost.. alive, beside his eyes.
Bird: He looked awful.. but I got this sort of feeling from him. That he wasn’t really dead.. so, I went with my gut. I had always been good with machines, anyhow.
Bird: It would be some time before I realized who Jet really was.. what he was. He didn’t remember much at first, and still doesn’t remember everything. I kept him in the dark on purpose, so he wouldn’t leave.. he found out, eventually.
He was devastated.. he was hurt, rightfully so. But.. he forgave me, somehow. Not before disappearing for a good month or so, though! Haha..
Bird: We had been something of lovers before he found out, but after things had settled, it was even better. No more secrets. Jet knows as much, if not more than I do about himself now, aha!
This ended up being quite the tale… I hope you don’t mind! There’s still so much more, too.. Shame.
