IRP The House of Haxa Minijina (Nik and Luthire)
#1
The weathered doors of an aged estate creaked open, creating an irritating enough sound that you'd think it was a nail on a chalkboard. The very thought of it sent shivers down Nik's spine and drove him up a damn wall. He was fearless to an extent, and someone who largely catered to the fact that he didn't believe in ghosts... well, human ghosts at least. Ghost type Pokémon were a slightly more difficult case to rebuke, one that he didn't really care to dive into a drawn-out philosophy battle with.

Nik pressed on, entering the massive mansion, one with few lights working and even fewer candles lit. He had heard about the so-called ‘haunted’ estate while training to earn a second badge, and nearly got in a fist fight about the ethereal with the random trainer who brought it up. He was a student of science after all, or at least would have been had he gone to school as his father had wished. Now, he was here trying to disprove that random trainer's argument by staying at the mansion for a night. Although he didn't really bother with working out how he'd get in touch with the ghostly believer after he disproved the fanatic, and probably didn't care to so long as we left with the 'handomse reward' that the Mr. Aucuaman was allegedly promising for solving the haunting problems. Nik circled the manor's foyer with a Minijina in tow, presumably to alert him when one of the tormenting ghost Pokémon started wreaking havoc. Because he was sure it was a ghost type Pokémon as nothing else would make sense.

“Hey!” Nik shouted, getting annoyed at the large vacant room that only seemed to be good for echoing his own voice back. “Is anyone else here? Mr. Aucaman??” Minijina stood close behind his trainer, with a hand gripping the back of his left pant leg. If he didn’t know any better, Nik would think that his ghost type was afraid of other ghost types. Something about that just didn’t make any sense, though.

Abruptly and without warning, a powerful arm latched onto Nik's right leg from the darkness below. Immediately, Nik sprang back in shock, but the malicious hand would not yield. Instead, it began to pull... and pull and pull... Nik lost his balance and fell to the ground with a loud thud... but the arm didn't care and continued to pull... and pull... and pull... And then... the beast lurking from the dark let out a ghoulish cry....

Nothing disorients a man nearly as much as being grabbed hold of by the leg and pulled to the ground without a hint of warning. Despite Nik's disbelief in any sort of notion that the the Aucaman household was indeed haunted, the sudden scare caused him to recess back to the most innate and instinctual mindset. In other words, he flailed about kicking and screaming with his free leg for nearly ten seconds or so before the mumbling of a man broke through his own cries of despair and the grip on his right leg loosened. When Nik realized that the assailant was a rather pathetic-looking man moping on the ground, his consciousness exited combat mode and attempted among huffing and puffing to regain a calm demeanor.

Things happened fast as a girl appeared quickly at the scene and began abruptly reprimanding the guy in pain about food before introducing the both of them to Nik. He was still quite taken aback, but seemed to have a better handle on the situation. "Sorry, err.. about your face, dude," he apologized in a half-hearted manner. The shoemarks on the man named Luthire's face were clearly his own fault after all. "My name is Nik anyways, looks like we all got roped into this fake ghost hunt, huh?" he asked, not expecting an answer to the obvious question. The good thing was that Nik didn't mind having an extra hand or two to help him as his only goal was to prove his point that there weren't any real non-Pokémon ghosts around.

"Oh yeah, this is Miniji-" Nik's voice cut off as he realized that the tiny ghostly badger was no longer gripping his pant leg, and was in fact no where to be seen. "Shit!" he thought out loud as his heart started racing almost as much as before. "The poor guy must have ran off somewhere!" It only made sense after all, since the pant leg that the Minijina held close was probably torn away in the scramble of incessant kicking. Jumping to his feet without a second to lose, Nik started towards the nearest doorway, but turned briefly to the boy and girl as he remembered he wasn't alone. "I have to find my Pokémon, a young Minijina. Feel free to tag along or not," he spat out quickly. Whatever silly tasks Nik had originally set out on would have to take a backseat to finding his comrade.
