Finally. It'd felt like forever since Sparrow had been on a real mission, and although they'd replaced some of her normal team members with people she'd never worked with before - including one of the kids still in training - she wasn't going to complain just yet. Beggars couldn't be choosers, after all. At any rate, she needed to focus on the task at hand anyway and not those composed of her squad. She was sent out here to try and rectify the mistake other members had made on the last Legendary Nest raid and actually come back with some or kill those that might hatch during the process... whatever it took to keep the guardians from gaining the upper hand.
Sawsbuck crept through the forest on 801 on silent hooves, making sure to keep himself and his trainer shadowed via the darkness from the canopy above. Despite the fact night was upon them, moonlight still cast some sort of illumination on the scene. Even though she was almost positive no-one would be out at this hour... she couldn't take any chances. Digging her knees into her pokemon's sides lightly, the two turned and picked their way around the forest, Sparrow leaning forward and keeping her head near Sawsbuck's neck to look low for any signs of the nest she'd discovered earlie-- ah, yes there it was. Carefully, she slipped down from the stag's back and slowly picked up one of the eggs that were there, stashing it away in the sack she'd brought with her so she could keep any twerps from finding it.
Ah, yes. Perfect job, if she did say so herself. Sparrow smiled in triumph before mounting Sawsbuck again and moving along, eventually finding an excellent spot to hide themselves in to watch for suspicious activity. Now they wait.

Shortly behind Sparrow, Fang padded along with Tayuya on his back. She really shouldn't be out here, still recovering from her ordeal with Virizion and all, but what do doctors know anyway? As long as she didn't strain herself, her stitches would be fine! Stopping at the nest, Fang picked up one of the eggs with his tails and handed it to Tayuya, who examined it closely.
"Yep, this is a good one. Alright Fang, make sure none of those goody goodies get the last one. Go on, git it." She said. The Ninetales nodded and proceeded to roll the last egg away from the nest, stuffing it into one of the many bushes around the area. Satisfied with their work, Tayuya looked ahead and saw Sparrow and Sawsbuck and grinned, clutching Fang's scruff tighter.
"Catch up to them boy!" She commanded. Fang barked and ran up to the pair as Tayuya relaxed on her ninetales, the egg tucked away in her backpack. As the fox pokemon walked with Sawsbuck into the brush, Tayuya chuckled at Sparrow.
"What's up chickadee?" She asked haughtily, winking at Sparrow.
On the ground, Inori raced through the foliage with her ever-so-faithful electrike on her heels. Well more like trying to nip at her heels. Oi! Stop that! The girl exclaimed, trying to dodge the puppy teeth while on the run. He was just so excited it was just absolutly insane. He merely barked and yipped his excited happiness... Oh he was so loud, if anyone were around they'd hear him a mile off. She would've tried to return him to his ball but then he'd just run off like again and she'd have to chase after him like an idiot. Mad barking or a maniac chase, which would she perfer? That was a hard choice... She'd stick with the barking. So off she went to find and protect the eggs she was meant to protect with a yippie too-hyper electrike singing into the air.
Sparrow hissed under her breath and had her hand on the knife at her thigh when Tayuya approached, the dagger nearly unsheathed and lashing at the Recruiter's face when she recognized who she was. "Tch... do that again and you'll have even more stitches to worry about." Shaking her head, she patted Sawsbuck's neck as he snorted, putting her weapon back in the meantime. "Still, it's good to see ya, sweet cheeks. Nice to know I have someone capable on my side and not another academy punk." She knew very well that some of them would probably do well in the Necro world, but... they still weren't good enough for her quite yet.
The agent shrugged it off and suddenly turned her head to the right, pulling back hard on her pokemon's reigns as various... unfamiliar noises infiltrated the night scene. A shriek? From above, perhaps. Barking? Below. Sparrow's bright eyes narrowed and she urged Sawsbuck on once more, deciding that whatever it was wasn't close enough yet to be an issue. She focused back on Tayuya and Fang with an arched brow, hoping the other teen had heard it too.
As the two were running, Rai suddenly jumped ahead of his trainer. He gave his racer a look that said 'follow', and even if Inori didn't want to he'd run off in any-which-direction without her. 'Lets save the hassle...' she thought, chasing once again after her yellow and green pokemon.
What was on Rai's mind well, he just wanted to take lead and 'lead' her to the enemy. (Pffft, more like run around until they found someone.)
Sparrow nodded at her teammate, keeping alert until she swore she heard the screech again. Suddenly, she and her pokemon banked to the right, coming face-to-face with a random Moltres and a girl on its back. Hah! She knew it! This mission would have been too good to be true if they didn't run into some goody-goodies! The Agent heaved her leg over Sawsbuck and slipped off of his back as he charged in front of her, shoving an antler in the legendary's face to ward her off and away from his trainer.
"Uh-uh Paulie, we can't let you get any farther than that" Sparrow challenged, swinging the satchel that was on Sawsbuck's back over her shoulder. "Keep them back, Sawsbuck!" Whether Tayuya wanted to jump out as well or help them was up to her - she hadn't given the girl's location away yet.
