I walked along, head down to avoid attention. My phone buzzed in my pocket. I pulled it out and looked at the text.
Hey Raikou. Suicune says hi.
I snapped the phone shut, angry at the single line of text. I was forever getting people making jokes at the fact that Raikou was also the name of a Pokemon, which annoyed me no end. I ran the rest of the way to the lake. I picked up a stone and threw it into the water. I went down for another, but something caught my eye. It was just another stone, but it had a faint rainbow glow, and the words GREETING FROM THE FUTURE carved on it in sharp, pointy letters. I picked it up, but the rainbow glow spread to become what resembled a portal.
"Potaru?" I said, speaking Japanese rather than English. I dropped the stone and reached out. The moment my fingers touched the multicoloured swirl the lake disappeared, replaced with somewhere I didn't know.
"Ittai nani?!" I shouted. What the hell?!
