ooc: This is a one-shot! Tying up an older plot loose end.
Dimity had come alone to this place. She knew its lush green forests well, and the only thing was that she did not feel welcome as she once had. It was worse knowing that once upon a time, he had moved here and shaped this world partly for her.
A blue and white hybrid creature sailed through the air to meet her as she descended. Dimity slowed to a hover.
"He's not here right now," was all that Anggun said. She might not be a full Arceus, and had been forever denied the full powers of the pokegod side of her family, and was planetbound; but it didn't mean she could not sense what was coming from above and beyond. She had picked up on the estranged white mare's arrival from a distance on her home world. And the churning anticipation sort of emotions coming from her already told her all she needed to know about why she had returned.
She would not give Dimity the quick, easy answer that she already knew. Let the confused femme suck it up and do something on her own for once.
Anggun was not the only one picking up on the other's emotions. Dimity sensed sharply the young hybrid's disapproval, and of more disappointment waiting beyond it. If you have something to say to me, just say it, she wanted to say, but she held it back, shielding it in full from the mind of Alcatraz's daughter. "Thank you," she said instead. "Do you know where he might be?"
"Probably in the Riversong forest," Anggun answered with a place in her mind that Dimity recognised. Her Suicune-like ear twitched. It was a good thing Dimity had caught her now...she herself had been about to head out somewhere... and now that she had thought of Riversong's jungle, something about that place lured her. But it wouldn't be the same place in it that Dimity was going, or where her father was. "Good luck."
"Thank you." Dimity opened up a portal, and slipped through easily.
He was waiting on the other side.
