Red did not like being alone. Of course, he had never really been alone, not since he'd started his journey as a Pokemon trainer. For the longest time, he'd had six companions - guardians, if you will - constantly with him. Through thick and thin, no matter what the challenge, Red knew he'd be able to overcome it with the help of his Pokemon.
But this time, he wasn't so sure. The house was a different place at night, a vastly different place. What had seemed so warm and inviting had suddenly turned cold and deadly as soon as the sun had set. Red saw them, heard them everywhere he turned - the most frightening beings that had ever existed. Gruesome zombies and medical oddities came pouring out of who knows where, and with them came even more monsters. When attempting to categorize them, the Pokedex could only give corrupt data, leaving Red at a loss as to how to fight them.
Not that he would have wanted to, anyway. He didn't want to put his friends in danger like that.
And without knowing he could rely on his Pokemon, Red felt truly alone.
Upon exiting the Grand Room, Red found himself back in the East Hallway. It would have been quaint, had it not been for the sudden shift in atmosphere. The trainer could hear the sounds of monsters behind him; he knew he had to keep going, yet he felt so drained. Slinking off to one of the corners and praying he would be hidden by the shadows, Red slid to the ground and wrapped his arms around his knees.
