As Lincoln continued to dream his dream suddenly as it went on, almost as if he went on a single road any made it to an end point where there was a pass on the right and a path on the left. The pass on the right had the original Dream with the same six creatures, but the path on the left had different creatures but the dream was similar.
Letting his curiosity got the better of him Lincoln blocked on the path to the left and there stood stood a few different creatures than the ones he had seen before.
The first creature was like the creature he had seen before in his dream as the same blue creature that appear to be wearing..."Armor.
The second creature appeared to be humanoid but not exactly humanoid, and for some reason Lincoln sensed a strong fighting spirit as well as determination from this creature.
The third creature look like it was a combination of a horse and a bug.
The fourth creature was the same ape like creature from Lincoln's dream.
The fifth creature looked like it was a combination of some kind of reptile and a bird.
Finally the sixth creature was reptile light and felt similar to the other reptile from the earlier part of the dream but was somehow different.
As Lincoln was getting a better look at them he noticed that like the last time he was holding a large golden trophy when suddenly a loud voice echoed through his head
"Choose one of these two paths! The path of Ideals or the path of Truth! You may only choose one Lincoln Loud! I suggest you choose wisely!"
"Wait who are you?! What does this all mean?!"
But before Lincoln could get any more answers he suddenly found himself awake from the dream.
Lincoln looked around and wipe the sweat from his brow as he began to question himself"...Dang it...what was that strange dream about? Wait it's morning already?"
Meanwhile inside the Loud residence Lisa had arose from her slumber without so much as a wink of feeling tired. As she looked around she was delighted as she knew today was the big day.
"Well I better get ready and it looks like parental units have to get themselves ready as well, both physically and mentally."said Lisa as she went over to her desk and begin preparing a cup of hot cocoa as she was too young to drink coffee.
As Lisa was sipping down her hot cocoa, she began to recall the conversation she had last night with her parents after the end of their call with Professor Juniper.
"Well I hope you're happy now Lisa everything went exactly as you wanted."said Rita who clearly wasn't happy with how things have turned out.
"I'm delighted actually mother. Not only will Lincoln be be helping Professor Jennifer with her research, he will be helping me with mine as well."Lynn Sr then came to a realization.
"Wait are you saying you set this up because that Pokemon League would not let you participate so you said Lincoln in your place."
"Exactly father, the league has a strict restriction regarding the age group because of this group known as Team Plasma, but as far as the leak is concerned at this point they broke up into two factions and they're not as powerful as they used to be... Anyway my point is yes I one Lincoln to go to Unova but out of all of us he will be the one that will benefit most.Rita began to look at her daughter with a look of confusion.
"What do you mean? How will your brother benefit most from this?"
"Because out of all of us Lincoln will be the one who benefits the most. Not only will he be able to go to a new land that is very rare for people outside the region to go to but he'll have a chance to explore it and really find himself as many throughout their Pokemon journeys discover what they want to do with their lives. That and I believe all of all of us Lincoln will be delighted because let's face it going to the Unova region is an adventure of a lifetime. Not many would pass it up."said Lisa with no dishonesty in her voice as she truly believed everything she was saying.
The Loud parents looked at each other and we're on the same page. Lisa had a point not many would turn this opportunity down especially an eleven year old like Lincoln who lives for adventure.
Besides at least you wouldn't have to sleep outside anymore and those dirty pajamas. And Lynn Sr knew all too well that Lincoln would prefer to go to the Unova region rather then spend the night at Aunt Ruth's residence.
"Besides I'm pretty sure Lincoln would prefer to stay in the Unova region rather than spend even one night with Aunt Ruth."said Lisa who was on the same page as her father.
"Oh come on your Aunt is not that bad...Right?"Asked Rita as soon as she noticed that her husband and daughter were giving her deadpan looks.
"Honey even Lana can't stand staying with Aunt Ruth, so what does that tell you about someone like Lincoln."said Lynn Sr dryly as possible too indicate his point.
With that said Rita just let out a sigh of the feet and walked out of the room with her husband close behind her. The two headed down to their room as they knew they had a big day tomorrow as they had to explain to Lincoln everything that was going to happen and they knew he probably wouldn't take it well at first.
As for Lisa she stretched a little before letting out a large yawn and decided it was time time for bed, unaware that someone was watching from the air vents.
"Well not even I can predict how Lincoln will take the news. Or even the fact if are parental units will even tell him everything. But that's what makes it all excited because I know Lincoln will be delighted as soon as he learns everything about Pokemon."said Lisa as she went to work on a device she planned to give Lincoln for his Journey.
Meanwhile Outside Lincoln was doing a bit of stretching before he headed into the front yard to wait for his breakfast. As Lincoln was waiting he saw the door open and saw his mother moving her head in a motion that indicated she wanted him to come in.
"Well it's about time that they came to their senses."said Lincoln who ran inside as soon as he saw his mother's gesture.
Rita meanwhile got out of the way as her son answer the Loud residence with a smile on his face, unaware of what was to happen to him.
As Lincoln made his way inside he quickly noticed that his father was sitting on the couch with a stern look on his face and when he got a good look at his mother you noticed that she had a similar face.
"Lincoln please sit down we need to talk."ordered Lynn Sr and Lincoln although reluctant complied with the order as he was wondering what was going on.
Lincoln sat down in the single person chair while his parents sat down on the multi-person couch.
"Okay what is going on? You guys are letting me back in the house right?
"... Lincoln it was decided last night at a family meeting... that you would be going away for a little while until this blows over..."said Rita with much reluctance as she really did not want to do this but knew she had no choice as it was for her son's safety that he leave for a while.
"WHAT! ARE YOU FREAKING KIDDING ME! FIRST IT WAS THIS WHOLE BAD LUCK NONSENSE WHICH I WILL ADMIT I HAD A PART IN BUT AT LEAST I WOULD NEVER HAVE TAKEN IT AS FAR AS YOU GUYS! THEN I HAD TO SPEND THE LAST SEVERAL DAYS OUTSIDE LIKE A WILD ANIMAL AND NOW YOU GUYS ARE GOING TO SEND ME AWAY WITH AUNT RUTH!"
"Lincoln it's not like that."
"OH I AM DONE LISTENING, LET ME TELL YOU SOMETHING IT'S NOT BEEN EASY BEAM ME OVER THE LAST SEVERAL DAYS! AND ANOTHER THING LYNN LITERALLY ATTACKS ME OUT OF NOWHERE AND YOU DO NOTHING AND NOW YOU'RE PUNISHING ME BY SENDING ME WITH AUNT RUTH!"Yelled Lincoln who was red in the face with anger.
"LINCOLN WE'RE NOT SENDING YOU WITH AUNT RUTH!"yelled Rita as she knew she had to get her son to listen.
"What do you mean?"Asked Lincoln as he did not understand what was going on. If they were not sending him with Aunt Ruth where were they sending him?
"At first we were going to send you with Aunt Ruth son, but Lisa suggested a more... favorable destination for you."said Lynn Sr who was twirling his thumbs as he didn't know how to explain things to his son.
"Well if you're not sending me with Aunt Ruth where are you sending me?!"said Lincoln who had calmee down a little because he knew he wasn't going with Aunt Ruth, but was still not happy about the fact he was being sent away because they still thought he was bad luck.
Lynn Sr it is lip a little before responding to his son's question"Lisa suggested we send you with a colleague of hers who lives on an island close to the nation of Japan..."
"Well... as long as it's not with Aunt Ruth. So when do I leave?"Asked Lincoln who decided to admit defeat because knowing his family they would not let this go and if he chose to not leave they would most likely send them with Aunt Ruth which not even he would send his worst enemy too.
"You leave today at the Detroit airport. So go take a shower, pack anything you want to take with you."
"Well that's a no-brainer I mean this Professor lady would probably ask questions as to why I would come to the Detroit airport in dirty pajamas covered in sweat."said sleeping with cold fury which caused his parents to flinch a little.
"...Your clothes are already in the bathroom, so when you're ready head up there and clean yourself off..."said Rita who is starting to regret her decision as the minutes went by.
"At least I won't be clean."said Lincoln as he began to walk up stairs the clean himself off as although he was still angry the thought of a shower sounded delighting to him and there was no way he was passing that up.
As soon as Lincoln got to the second floor heat quickly ran towards the bathroom and lock the door we're like his parents said his clothes were waiting for him.
While still angry at his family for the thought of sending him away at least they were not sending him with that roof but still he was not happy at the thought of being sent thousands of miles away from his home to some island he has never heard of with some friend of Lisa's.
Well at least he would have a roof over his head for a while.
So without any further question Lincoln quickly jumped in the shower after disrobing I began to clean himself with soap and water, letting out joyful noises as he did so as he was going to be clean for the first time in the past couple of days.
As Lincoln was showering he still had one question in mind, well two exactly.
"Who with those creatures behind him? And what did that voice mean when he had to choose between Ideals and Truth? Whatever it meant Lincoln had a feeling that this decision would have something to do with his trip to that island nation near Japan.
[ With Lincoln reluctantly agreeing to go to Unova. All is set in motion for a Grand Adventure of a lifetime as Lincoln will soon head off to the world of Pokemon and thus cover everything it has to offer. Will Lincoln choose ideals or will he choose Truth? Only time will tell as the journey continues]
