My breath froze in the air in front of me. Dang, it was cold. But it would all be worth it once I caught that legendary, Regice.
The legends said that Regice resided in this cave. The braille on the wall had said STOP AND WAIT. WAIT FOR TIME TO PASS TWICE. So... I sat and waited. Brrr.
I shivered. My fingers and toes were getting numb. I had never seen Regice's Pokedex entry- I wondered if it mentioned how cold it made it's surroundings. Yawning, I waited a bit more. Huh... I wasn't tired before. I was pumped to catch Regice! But it was so cold... Maybe I should go home first and get something to eat?
Scratch that. I suddenly felt nauseous- extremely so. I didn't really care about getting Regice anymore. In fact, I didn't really care about anything. At all. Why was I even here? I was tired. I started standing up.
Aw, crap! I peed myself! That was so overwhelmingly embarrassing, even though no one was in there with me. "Zaw nufs," I said, my speech slurring. And now my pants were literally freezing. Great.
I tried to stand up again, but I was too weak. A shape was in the corner of the room... Regice? No... a person? Brendan? Professor Birch? I blinked. It was gone.
Was I hallucinating? What was going on? Why was I just so... so tired... maybe I could just lay down for a while... take a quick nap...
My head fell against the floor as I fell asleep.
"What the... Is that... Wake up! Wake up!"
Brendan ran over to May's side and checked her pulse. She was gone. He had come to the cave to see if she had caught Regice before him, as she did with most legendaries. He didn't expect to see any living thing in the cave. Which, technically, is what he found.
May was lying on the ground, eyes closed. She was covered in a layer of ice. She looked... peaceful, almost, despite her no doubt horrible death. Brendan called his dad and May's parents, trying to explain what he had found.
After explaining, he called Latias and grabbed May in his arms to take her body back to Littleroot. Tears gathered in his eyes as he remembered everything they had done together, and thought of everything they could never do.
Ruby: REGICE’s body was made during an ice age. The deep-frozen body can’t be melted, even by fire. This POKéMON controls frigid air of minus 328 degrees F.
Sapphire: REGICE cloaks itself with frigid air of negative 328 degrees F. Things will freeze solid just by going near this POKéMON. Its icy body is so cold, it will not melt even if it is immersed in magma.
