Mike saw that he fainted and then he thought of a evil prank, he flew to Steve and used a marker permanent to draw on the omnitrix and his face....'mwahahahahahh' he lauged evil in his mind, as he became invisible, so he could see his reaction.
A flash happened, and Steve turned back into his human form, which promptly woke him up. As he sat up and shook his head of the last vestiges of sleep, he saw the yellow bats on the floor all around him, and everything came flooding back to him. He immediately looked to the watch on his wrist, which now had a red coloring instead of green, and tried pulling it off.... Which didn't happen, much to his disappointment. "First a ghost, now a watch that turns me into a plant-monster that won't come off my wrist. I need to get out of here."
Steve turned to the passage he had come from, and started walking out, not noticing that he had two black mouths on each of his cheeks, put there with permanant marker by the looks of it.
As Steve tried to remember which way he had come from, he found(Ironically) that he was terribly lost. Then he thought of the thing on his wrist(It certainly wasn't a watch), and tried to see if maybe him turning into a plant monster would help him get out of there. He looked, and saw that it was once again green.
"Maybe if I push this thingy..." And just like that, the face of it extended out, and a silhouette of the thing he had become came up. As he was pressing it back in, his hand turned a little without him noticing, and the silhouette changed to that of a small frog-like creature. As the expected flash happened, he felt a different experience then what he expected. Instead of becoming plant-like, his skin turned grey, and he got smaller. A LOT smaller!
Steve suddenly felt something in his head. A BIG something. It was like all of his life's mysteries were suddenly at his fingertips, his for the taking. He understood what the feeling was, what it meant: He was SMART. All capitals.
"Interesting..." He said in his now high-pitched voice. "It appears as if this transformation greatly enhances my inherent intelligence, probably some natural trait of the species I have become, allowing me to think at a higher level than most other life-forms." He blinked as he realized what he just said. "Uh, whatever that means." While he did turn into a very smart alien, he was still not very smart him.
"I wonder... How do I get out from here?" With his heightened intelligence, he felt the air disturbances around him, and did some quick calculations in his head, factoring in air current, direction, speed of the draft, Etc... "It appears that the passage to the surface would be the one directly to the right, judging by the air quality. Judging by the distance and time I had gone prior, it should be about a half-hour walk to the surface, depending on when I change back, of course." He started off in that direction, fully intent on getting out of these tunnels.
(If you want Ryu to end up here, then you can write him in whenever you want. He's your Roleplay character, I'm just doing this guy for now.)
'i have no idea about what he said....or why he is talking loud ,but meh' he thought, as he started stalking him wanting to see if some action will happen and because he was bit of stalker.Suddenly, some steps were hearing running in their direction.
Ryu,now with his Ultimatrix fully recharged, was running in the direction of Steve and Mike after hearing the alarm of the stolen Omnitrix.
Steve's head turned in the direction the footsteps were coming from, approximately 33.47 feet away and closing in on his current position at 3.13 feet a second, judging by the resonance of the sound the footfalls were making. He blinked as he realized what he was thinking. 'I think I like being smart...'
"I wonder if that person is good or not... Better safe than sorry." Steve quickly hid in a convenient hollow in the wall he was closest too.
(No, I'm not dead. I just... Forgot about this for a little. ^^; Heh...)
Ryu ran and almost missed the Grey Matter if is wasn't for the Ultimatrix saying "Omnitrix detected,The Omnitrix is 4 foots behind you" it said in a robotic voice."I forgot that the Utliamtrix could do that ;-;" He said facepalming,then he began to search for it.
(I think i wrote some word wrong but meh blame the translate XD)
'Omnitrix...' Steve, considering that the weirdest thing in that cave was on him(As well as the positioning the 'watch' gave for it's location) made it so obvious that even regular him would understand: His own watch was called an Omnitrix, and this new person wanted it. He didn't know what they wanted it for, but it was a safe bet to say that it wasn't anything good.
Steve quickly ran silently out from the small cleft in the wall, throwing a pebble that was on the ground in the opposite direct at the wall with an arc that would make it dislodge the small amount of dirt stuck approximately 2.13 feet above the ground, and creating a much louder noise than a simple 'tik' against the wall, while also providing a dust-cloud to draw the attention of the eye. ...And he realized just how much he was thinking again. It really was hard to get used to.
As fast as he could, he headed up the tunnel that the new-comer had just ran down from, hoping that the 'ghost' would keep this person busy.
Ryu turned fast his head in the direction from where the sound came,but before he could go there ,he thought of something."Ultimatrix,where is the Omnitrix?" He asked his watch ready to run in the direction of where it said."Omnitrix is detected behind you." The watch answered,after he said that Ryu ran fast in that direction.
In the time it had taken Ryu to ask that question, and for his device to answer back at him, Steve had ran about 25 feet up the tunnel, and was steadily heading towards the exit. As his luck would have it, that was when the watch face started beeping red, and a few seconds later... -FLASH- He was back to normal. although he wasn't quite as smart as he was before.
As he continued going, he tripped on something on the ground and landed on his stomach. As he quickly got up and looked at it, he thought it looked a little like... a paintbrush. He didn't think to much on it, and kept running.
Ryu saw the red light and knew that this was the annoying flash of time out of the omnitrix and knowing that ,even if he ran he wouldn't catch him he actived his Ultimatrix and selected a hologram of a feline-like alien and in a red flash(:3) in his place was a blue like-feline alien with red eyes and a red omnitrix symbol on his chest."Time to run!" He said as he ran to the direction of the first red flash and in less than some seconds he was in Steve face."So,who are you?A thief?or what?" He asked him.
Steve blinked, thinking he heard that name somewhere before. "I already told you. I'm Steve. Do you know what's going on here?" He was really confused from everything that had happened since he set foot in the cave, from ghosts attacking him, to lightning bats, and then the thing on his wrist, as well as this new guy. It was relly starting to put a drain on his brain.
Steve was confuse for a moment by the fast-talking alien, before realizing what he said, and getting just the smallest bit angry. Okay, a little bit more than small. "Stole it?! I was exploring an abandoned cave, got attacked by some ghost, and fell down to the cave this 'Omnitrix' was in, where it leaped onto my wrist! That is NOT stealing! If it was, IT stole ME!" Steve still needed to learn to control his hot-headed side, even if it was slightly justified this time.
