Son of Earth- Chapter 5Route 29 is a small road that divides the Cherrygrove Woods, an impassable clump of trees at the foot of the Silver mountain range. Inside it are many clearings and fields, the largest of which the route was built on and the very place Dante found himself upon fleeing New Bark Town. There wasn't anything particularly interesting about it. Even if there had been, it would have been lost in the blur as Dante fled through the tall grass west of the village. He didn't see or hear any pursuers, but didn't want to leave it to chance.He reached a fork in the road and stopped to catch his breath. Dante was sure of his safety now and began to figure out which path to take. A line of impassable trees stood in front of him, but Dante was sure he could see a break he might be able to pass through. The other way led up some small hills and around the line. The long way.

The front door was locked but he'd expected that.
Son of Earth- Chapter 2When you think of Johto, you think of sprawling Goldenrod, historical Ecruteak, the majestic peaks of Mt. Silver, the mysterious Dragon Clan of Blackthorn. You think of the dangerous Whirl Islands, the lighthouse of Olivine, the gigantic Lake of Rage. When you think of Johto you think of all of these places and more.You do not think of quiet little New Bark Town on the southern coast.When Dante could see the rooftops of the village from his spot on the rails, he jumped onto a branch of a nearby tree and climbed down. When he was little his father would take him bug catching in the Viridian Forest and Dante had gotten really good at tree climbing. Of course, this tree was taller and older, but Dante managed to make it to the ground. The canopy so far above his head now blocked out much of the sunlight.Dante walked for a few minutes in silence, lost in the thoughts of his journey and the pokemon he wanted to raise and how he felt they could be trained best. He knew he wanted an Abra.
