"I think I need to give Grondir another chance. And don't count yourself out, either. Lemonade has a pretty strong fighter." Jaima leaned against the wall of the pokecenter, polishing off his burger. "I think I've seen the nuisance with a different pokeball, though. He might surprise us."

Jaima looked out at the darkening sky. He didn't want to go inside just yet. It felt like it would end a wonderful day too soon. "I think you should use Taillow. He's got spunk, that kid..."

"Alright! That sounds like a good idea." Mindy replied. "I'll use Taillow then. He hasn't been in a battle yet. I sure hope he's ready..." she said nervously. She thought about it for a moment, but shrugged it off. "He's got a good work ethic. I think he's a good choice to battle with." she decided. "Its getting too dark for me. I'm going to go inside and get ready for the big day tomorrow. I'll see ya later" she told him, walking into the pokemon center. She immediately went to the room after checking in with Nurse Joy. She placed her stuff near the door and immediately went in for a shower. Melinda did not even think to let her pokemon out. She figured that they would probably be tired from the day of play at the beach. Mindy took a long, nice, relaxing bath in the bathroom connected to the room. It felt very refreshing after being in the hot sun all day.

When she came out of the bathroom, to her surprise, Feebas was on the bed staring straight at her. It freaked her out for a second, but she got over it. "Oh! Feebas, you scared me there for a second. What's up?" she asked, sitting down down next to the little fish.

"Feebas!" cried out Feebas, her eyes showing a sign of neediness.

"Do you want something little buddy?" replied Melinda. She had no idea what the Feebas wanted. Feebas then hopped off the bed and rolled over to her bag by the door. She then began nipping at the zipper of the biggest pouch on it.

"Feeb, Feebas!" cired out Feebas for the second time.

"He must want something in my bag..." she thought. "I know! She walked over to her bag, unzipped it, and took out the poffins. They were not very warm, but Feebas still looked like she wanted them. She took one out of the plastic bag it was in and put it on the ground. Feebas dug right in, and within seconds, it was half gone. Melinda took it away and scolded her. "Feebas, if you eat ti too fast, you won't feel full at all." she told Feebas, hitting her on the nose. "Plus, it tastes better when you eat it slowly. Just try it!" Mindy told Feebas with a smile. Feebas smiled back and continued eating, but at a much slower pace. "Good girl!" cheered Mindy, patting Feebas on the head.

She changed into her pajamas and took out her pair of Combee slippers. By the time Melinda was done, Feebas was just finishing up the rest of the poffin, reducing it to crumbs. Mindy walked over to Feebas, nodded, and then returned her to her pokeball. She cleaned up the crumbs on the floor and threw them away. Mindy then went over to the bed and sat down fluffing up her pillows. Her bed was made perfectly, and jaima's was all in a crumpled mess. "Oh well, boys will be boys..." she thought. Mindy made his bed for him, and then returned to her side of the room. She made sure everything was ready for the next day. Melinda decided to wait until Jaima returned before turning the lights out, the polite thing to do. She stared at the clock, watching the minutes go by. Soon, it was 9:30, her usual bedtime the day before something big, like their journey east the following day. She wanted to stay up regardless. But her body refused. She fell asleep without even knowing it. Mindy fell over from a sitting position to a sleeping position unconsciously onto her bed and began snoring very loudly.

Jaima watched Mindy walk into the pokecenter, up until she reached the Nurse's counter to check in. Then he turned back to the night, thinking on the day. It had been nice, ordinary even, until he remembered the odd voice he'd heard after thinking about his father.

Thinking about his father didn't happen often anymore. When he'd been younger, he used to think about Dad every day. The pain had eventually faded, but the memory didn't until recently. Jaima wasn't sure if that was a good thing or not.

The twins were too young to remember Dad. In a way, it was worse for them. They only remembered missing something, without really knowing what.

The voice, though, was more like Mom than Dad. Except for the fact that it was in his head, and didn't sound like his mom, it was incredibly like her; wise and sad at the same time. He liked it.

I like you, too. That's why I choose you to look after her

Jaima jerked, looking around.

Please don't be alarmed. We don't do this often, but we're impressed with you. You have an aura of kindness. Please, take care of her.

"Who's 'her'?" Jaima said aloud, feeling self conscious. Immediately, a wave of approval swept over him, much less refined than the voice.

That was her, the voice "said", a feeling of amusement riding the mental phrase like a current of water. She is most enamored with you emotions.

Again, the urge to go east overwhelmed him, so he followed it. He passed a small pokémart and he felt another urge, to buy a pokéball. He did so, trusting the urge without knowing why. It was a quarter of what he'd kept from his mother, but something told him it would be worth it.

He walked vaguely east until he came to a vacant lot. There, floating in the middle of the lot, was a beautiful white and green pokémon. At first he thought she was injured, with a red object sticking out of her middle, but a wave of reassurance and amusement assuaged his fears.

She (Because, Jaima knew, this was the source of the inner voice) nodded to him, the gestured toward her feet. The tall grass there rustled, and then a tiny pokémon peeked out. She was a pearlescent white, with a green helmet-like crest. Two red triangles sticking out from the back and front of the crest. She seemed nervous, but as he knelt, she gained cofidence and waddled to him.

She is different from the rest of our clan. She is afraid that the difference means that she is inferior.

"Difference seldom means that. It usually means 'special'." A wave of pride and sheer joy nearly overwhelmed him, and the little pokémon clapped her arm-like appendages.

Jaima stared in wonder. "Does she have a name?"

She will, when you can think of one. You will be her trainer.

Jaima swallowed, but nodded. He held the ball out to the little one, who peered at it, once again jittery. "It won't hurt you, honey. It'll be like a warm home." The little pokémon looked at Jaima, then back at the larger one. "I don't even keep my pokémon in them for very long. It's just required in some places..."

Coming to a decision, the little pokémon reached out and pushed the switch. The ball opened and energy enveloped her. Before she disappeared, she looked at Jaima, radiating trust and confidence.

When the energy swirled away, Jaima looked at the larger pokémon. She nodded, sadly, then began to fade.

"Wait!" He cried, but she did not, only leaving him with this parting thought. Take care of my little one.

Jaima looked at the ball, swallowing thickly. The larger pokéon didn't teleport away. He'd heard a tale that some strong pokémon lasted as spirits, and didn't succumb to being ghost pokémon. They faded when put to rest.

"I'll call you Mercury," he whispered to the ball, and turned to walk back. When he passed the pokémart, he bought some clay and paint to decorate the ball.

* * * * *

When he got back to the room, Mindy was knocked out, on her side as if she'd been sitting when she fell asleep. Jaima smiled and, careful not to wake her, straightened her as best he could without getting too personal. "You're too cute, you know that?" he whispered, confident she wouldn't wake.

He let his pokémon, retrieved from the Nurse, out of their pokéballs to sleep, then settled down himself for some rest. Mercury curled up in front of him, counterpointing Shadow, who was behind his legs.

(OOC: I'm replying on how I *think* Jax would reply first)

"What!? I'm battling Jaima again?" Lemonade said with a smile on his face, "Now I'm going to show him how I can really battle without a tie." The pizza was almost gone and the restaurant was getting crowded, so he picked up the box, threw it away and said to Jax that we should leave now.

The trees outside Melinda’s window were rustling very loudly. It was the middle of the night. The wind made a strange ominous hum. Melinda and Jaima lay in their beds, exhausted from the day and sleeping soundly. Jaima’s pokemon were also asleep in the room, while Melinda’s rested in their pokeballs. Not far away, a Hoothoot cooed creepily. It turned out to be a very spooky night. Melinda tossed and turned in her bed. She was unsettled. She sometimes spoke strange words, and she did not even know what she was saying. You see, strange things were happening to Mindy; things that she could not understand. These ‘things’ had happened to her ever since she was a little kid. Not often, but every once in awhile. Melinda never understood any of it, so she usually just brushed them off as nothing. This one was just the same, and Melinda knew she would forget about it in the morning.

As usual, stormy emerald clouds surrounded Melinda’s peripheral vision. Tonight’s clouds were extremely thick, and it was hard to see anything. Mindy saw many images go before her eyes quickly; too fast for her to see all of them clearly. However, Melinda did catch a few of them. In the first frame, she saw four people battling. The picture was replaced like a slide in a slideshow. The next one showed two of the four trainers remaining, frustrated in the midst of battle. Following that picture, she saw two people walking on a road surrounded by a field full of gorgeous flowers. The image immediately disappeared and was replaced by another one. It was of a strange new land with clear skies and open land. There was a boy in the field, practicing with his small pokemon. She observed this one more than the rest, because for some reason, it was stuck in her mind. The boy turned around, and his smiling face gave Melinda the chills. He was extremely good looking, and Melinda thought about him for a second. But before long, the image was gone.

Melinda got the feeling that her dream was ending. Then, something completely unexpected happened. Eerie black clouds come over the entire picture, blocking out all of her vision. But out of the darkness, a gleaming light shone through. Within that light, Mindy could see clearly Jaima and a pokemon. The pokemon was not familiar looking; it had a blue alien-like head with a red horn. The mysterious pokemon was touching a pokeball that Jaima was holding. Suddenly, a voice spoke out o her from the picture. ”Mercury” it whispered. The message was barely audible, but it was said in such a way that Mindy would not forget it. The image faded, and another replaced it almost immediately. It revealed three travelers walking down an open road. The beautiful orange and pink sunset was the background to the picture. The trio was socially interacting with each other, and looked like they were having a grand old time. This time, her strange experience ended on a happy note, something it often does not do. Melinda found herself awoken by the shake and sounds of someone calling her name.

Jaima rarely dreamed. At least, he'd rarely remember them after he woke. But as he slept, he dreamed, of his first day in Furoh, of his tearful yet happy goodbyes to his family, of battles and pokemon and contests.

As the night went on, the images repeated, but something had changed. The images didn't alter in the slightest. Mariko still gave him a watery smile as he boarded the ship, Natsume still chased the ship until she nearly fell off the pier, his mother still fussed and smiled and held back tears. But more and more, feelings of distress and confusion filled his thoughts. Finally, he woke up, scowling, and sat up. Mercury was on the edge of the bed, kneeling and peering at Mindy, radiating fear. She looked back at Jaima and an image popped in his head, of a ghost type pokemon draining Mindy of energy. It was rough, almost like a little child's drawing, and a sketchy questionmark followed it.

"No, I don't think she's being attacked. I think she's having a nightmare, though." The tiny pokemon covered the area on her face where her mouth would be in distress.

Jaima stepped from the covers, pulled his boxer shorts to a less twisted position, and stepped to Mindy's bed. "Min? Hey, Min," he called softly. "Hey, it's only a dream..." He nearly began stroking her hair to soothe her when her eyelids fluttered open, looking vaguely confused.

Melinda opened to eyes to the surprise of a nearly nude young male leaning over her bed stroking her hair. Mindy was already disoriented from the night's events, and was dripping with swet. The human standing over her did not help. Suddenly, instinct came over her, and was immediate. She slapped the face of the person as hard as she could. Upon further inspection, she saw that it was Jaima.

"Oh! Sh*t, sh*t, sh*t, sh*t, sh*it!!!" she exclaimed. "I am soo sorry. I couldn't see your face." she explained. She comforted him, and checked to make sure he wasn't hit too bad. Once that was done, Melinda looked out the window to see that light was breaking through the shutters. She glanced at the clock which read 9:30 A.M. Mindy got up from her bed and opened the shutters. Light from the morning sun came flooding into the room, disturbing Jaima's pokemon's sleep. All of Jaima's pokemon glared at Mindy with irritation, all except for one. Melinda walked over to the strange pokemon and something went off in her head, like a lightbulb. "Oh! So this is Mercury! Hi Mercury!" Melinda declared. Mercury umped off of the bed and ran behind Jaima's feet. "Look likes you have a shy one there Jaima. Did you catch her last night?" Mindy inquired.

"Ow." He supposed he deserved it, seeing how he hadn't even bothered to put a tank top on before trying to wake and/or comfort her. He did just that as Mindy apologized, slightly put out until she checked to see if he wasn't hurt. Then he was blushing. After all, she was still in pajamas her self.

Mindy opened the blinds. The sun was high and bright, and very useful for waking sleeping pokemon. Ember winced awy from it, glaring at Mindy, as did Fang from the foot of the bed. Grondir tried to glare, but the sun was warm and he seemed to enjoy it after a moment. Shadow sat up and watched the girl carefully, put out by the entire events of the morning.

When Mindy called Mercury's name, Jaima couldn't stop a smile from crossing his face. "Yeah, that's her. You could say she caught herself, though. With my Pokeball, no less." Jaima didn't notice Mercury's confusion, nor Shadow's look turning suspicious. He stepped into the bathroom to check his face and brush his teeth. "I found her in a field, and her mother asked me to take her," he said around his toothbrush. "I was going to you, but you... Were... Asleep?"

Jaima spit in the sink and atuck his head out the door. "How did you know her name was Mercury?"

There was a long silence after Jaima asked Melinda the question. All that could be heard was the water rushing through the faucet in the bathroom after Jaima spit into the sink. Jaima then emerged from the bathroom and saw Mindy staring at Mercury with an unsettling smile. "I-...I don't know," she said meekly. "Its...well...Its kind of hard to explain..." she thought about it for a few seconds. "You see, sometimes, when I am sleeping, I-...I see things." she paused again, her voice growing from soft to loud as she was gaining confidence while she continued talking. "Its happened ever since I was a kid I guess. Its some kind of dreaming I figure. I see images in my mind. Not actions or sounds, just images. Its strange, almost like a slideshow. These images are strange, and I have no idea what they are supposed to mean."

Mindy glanced at Mercury for a second. "But last night, something new happened. For the first time, I heard a voice in my dream. When the picture of you with this pokemon," she pointed to Mercury, "I heard a voice say 'Mercury'. It was kind of freaky. I remember I got these chills..." she paused. This pause, however was a long one. "This is new as well. In all my years of this happening to me, I have not once ever remembered any of my dreams. But now, I can recall each of them from last night. You see, there were other pictures in my mind as well, not just yours. I don't know what to make of all of this, its all so strange..." she trailed off. Mindy was very disoriented and confused still. She had a very painful headache, and thought she might be sick from the lightheadedness.

As Mindy spoke, Jaima could tell she was getting more and more confused, and more and more agitated. She was pale now, and looked nauseous.

Mercury, who had been cowering near the door, also seemed agitated, but not frightened anymore. Shadow was next to the ralts, watching Mindy, but no longer suspicious.

Jaima pulled on a pair of blue pants with a red stripe up the leg, then squatted in front of Mindy. He reached for her hand and held it, gently yet firmly. He waited for Mindy to look up, the spoke in soothing tones.

"It's OK, you know? No one in here thinks any different of you."

As if on cue, Mercury waddled to Mindy and crawled up in her lap. She let off strong waves of comfort. Everyone in the room began to relax, as if Combee had released it's sweet scent.

Melinda stroked Mercury's spherical head as she laid in her lap. "I know Jaima, its all just soo strange... Its unlike anything I've ever felt before..." she stopped. She wasn't nervous anymore. Mercury comforted her in her time of need. She thanked her for that. Melinda got ready for the day's events. She packed her things into her bag and zipped it up. She changed into her clothes fr the day: a green tank top, black jeans and her athletic shoes. To top it all of, she put on her green headband to keep her hair form falling onto her face.

Mindy then thought about something she'd wanted to do. "Jaima, before we go to our battle this afternoon, I think we should take a stop at the Pokemart and grab some potions. That way, after the battle, we won't need to return to the room and we can just go eastward." she told him. "I want to get to the next town in at most two days." she looked at Jaima and gave him an unsettled look. "I really do not like sleeping outside at night at all, and really want to get to our destination fast. By the way, do you know exactly where we are headed?" The silence after the question was filled with much more happiness and easiness than before when Melinda was feeling the effects of last night. Now, they could continue their journey. An ordeal was finished and over with. Melinda would accept her strange quirk as it was and continue towards her dreams and goals.

Jax was talking to some group of girls in the pizzeria and Lemonade wasn't about to wait for him, so he went over to the arcade part of the restaurant.

There was a fun game called Whack-a-Diglett that Lemonade was able to get 10 tickets from. There was a game were you simulated catching pikachu, chimchar and other pokemon. Lemonade got 15 tickets for that. When he bent down to take the tickets from the slot, Azure was rustling around inside the pokeball, so Lemonade unlatched the ball from his belt and let Azure out.

"What's going on, Azure?" Lemonade asked the Zubat. Azure just stared back and started zooming around his head, then rested on his shoulder. "I'm thinking you just needed to get out of the ball, huh?" said Lemonade.

Lemonade kept playing games, and Azure was just having fun and being affectionate toward Lemonade, as if they have been friends for a long time. The little blue bat was always trying to play the games with Lemonade, she was starting to get good at Whack-a-Diglett, that was because she kept thinking they were real diglett and kept attacking them.

After about an hour of playing games and laughing at his newest pokemon, Lemonade went to the exchange counter to turn in his tickets for some prizes. There were some cool pokemon clothes that looked like they would fit Azure, so he bought her a Green earring magnetic earring and put it on Azure's left ear. For Ratty he bought a bracelet with a yellow stone in it and for Rosie a yellow choker with a green pendant.

"Do you like your new earring?" asked Lemonade to Azure. The bat did a loop-de-loop, which Lemonade took as a yes. Both of them went back in to the dining area and Lemonade realized that he hadn't seen Jax for a while and started to wonder where he went.

"Hold on a moment, let me catch up on my mail."

Jaima sat on his bed and leaned back, reaching for the package on the night table closest to his bed. Sure enough, Mr. Postman had left the package he had delivered the night before in the right room, on the right nightstand, without being told. Jaima shrugged, laughed, and opened the package. Inside were two envelopes and a second pokégear, with radio, phone, and distress signal cards installed. A second distress signal card was also in the package, presumably for Jaima's own pokégear.

Jaima opened the purple envelope and saw his mother's distinctive, neat handwriting. 100 poké was folded in the letter, and Jaima rolled his eyes.

Jaima,

Silly boy! Of course the professor can spare one for you. He threw in the cards, but said you would have to find a map there, because Furoh doesn't export cards for pokégear. He does say to head to a place named Gigarte. I think he's trying to put you to work, since he thinks the environmental mindset that the townspeople have might lead to the discovery of new or different pokémon! He sends his regards, and went on for 30 minutes about what a good student and assistant you were. Such a nice man!

I've heard from your sisters. They're doing fine, and sent a letter on for you, too. I didn't read it, don't worry! They are doing well. As you know, they picked their starters the day after you left, and left the day after that. Natsume has since caught a hoothoot and Mariko has a spinirak. She says it's helped her get over her fear of bug pokémon, because he's "soooo sweet!"

So, tell me about this new companion you were willing to drop 100 poké on. What's her name? What's she like? Is she pretty? I want details!

Love you,

Mom.

As soon as he read the last paragraph, he paled, but set the letter aside. He did look at Mindy, however, hoping the warmth on his face hadn't turned into a full blown blush. "I think Gigarte might be a good city to go to. We can get a map when we get potions and stuff. Oh! And I have three on me already, so we can heal the kids right after the battle and then pick up more.

He opened the light blue envelope and found pages scrawled with two different colored inks. He couldn't help but smile. Those kids.

Jaima! Jaima!

We're off! You were right, this is so much fun! I told you so! Don't listen to her, she was still sniffling after you left. Well, YOU almost fell off the pier!

I caught a spinirak! She screamed her head off. I did, really, but he's SOOO SWEET! He's nice, but Hooty keeps looking at him and licking his beak! You keep that thing away from my Ara!

It's funny, we heard a noise in the bushes at night outside of our camp (We're almost to Cherrygrove, but our feet got tired and it was getting dark, so we camped. I set up the tent. But I cooked!) and we each got scared and threw a pokéball in the bushes. And we'd caught them! I opened mine and there was Hooty, looking confused, and then Mariko opened Ara's and screamed her fool head off (OK, OK, he GETS IT) and then Hooty and Ara started fighting again and we had to recall them! Poor Ara, it took hours to get her not to cower when Hooty was around. Hooty didn't help much.

So, you got a pokégear for someone, huh? Is it a giiiiirl? It's a girl! It's a girl! Jaima's got a girlfriend!! What's her name? What's she like? Have you kissed her? EEWW!!

Love you bro! Me too!

Natsume & Mariko!

Oh Lord, it was worse than he thought. Mr. Postman let the twins read his letter...

He was blushing now, for sure.

"Th-this is for you. It's a pokégear. Pretty useful. I asked my mom to send me an extra one. It's got some good stuff in it. Sorry." He held out the pokégear, looking at his feet to hide his blush. He'd get those girls... one day or another, he'd GET them.

"S-so, want to go to breakfast?"

Melinda was quite shocked by the gift Jaima gave her. She took it out of his hand, her hand shaking, and turned it on. It was largely the color green, with some reddish-pink on the inside. The screen turned on and asked Mindy to put in some information. Before doing so, she got up, hugged Jaima and kissed him on the cheek. "Thank you!" she chirped. "Your the best Jaima!" she verbalized exuberantly. After she nearly squeezed him to death from hugging, she turned her attention back to the Pokegear. All of her stuff was packed and ready, so she had some time to examine the device. Mindy was completely affixed to the screen, getting to know how to navigate it. "Yeah, breakfast sounds like a good plan. You lead the way..." she trailed off. For some reason, mindy found the little machine very intriguing. She followed Jaima down the hall to the cafeteria. There, she got a bagel with cream cheese and started to eat it, still investigating her new Pokegear.

Jaima found himself flushed again, but this time he was too distracted by the squeezing arms of Mindy to worry about being embarrassed. He decided to put his revenge on his sisters in the back of his mind. For now.

He watched her go, then decided to get dressed himself. He picked a blue top this time and slid into his usual black shoes, then followed Mindy to breakfast. Once there, he enjoyed a rolled omelet, miso soup, and a bowl of steamed rice with some red bean paste.

It was amusing how absorbed Mindy was with the pokégear, and rather heartening as well. He leaned over, once, to explain where the cards went to load different functions into the gear, but for the most part let her discover it on her own. That, after all, was half the fun of it!

As they ate, Jaima accessed his pokegear and walked through the options, setting it up with his updated information. He found that his mother had updated it with his sister's numbers as well as hers and Professor Elm's. That would come in handy.

Lemonade looked around the entire restaurant for Jax. He'd searched everywhere in the building, even the bathrooms. "I don't think Jax is here anymore, Azure," Lemonade said after a while of looking, "Maybe he went back to the Pokemon Center?" So Lemonade returned Azure to her pokeball and left the Pizzeria.

The walk back seemed to take forever. There were some handmade pokeballs that Lemonade saw in the window. There were both yellow and green balls, which Lemonade noticed looked better than the ones he'd painted himself. He went inside the store called Custom Pokeballs and looked at the price (which was 1000 pokemunny) and then walked right back out. He walked a little farther and saw a battle between a Treecko and a Pikachu. Lemonade thought that the Pikachu might be Jax's and ran over.

The battle had attracted easily 35 people. He had to push his way to the front of the crowd and looked at the trainer with the Pikachu and saw that it wasn't Jax. Even though he didn't know the trainers, he stood and watched for the entire battle. The Treecko was able to pull of the win by using the move Attract and finishing off the Pikachu with a nice, strong bite. Once the battle was over, Lemonade shoved his way back out of the crowd and started heading back toward the Pokemon Center.

He was nearly half way there when Azure burst out of her pokeball. She just wanted to fly around and get some exercise. The were walking around when Lemonade noticed a Seedot walking around and shouted, "Azure, let's fight that Seedot! Use leech life!" and as if Azure was Lemonade's best friend, she shot down, bit the Seedot and and flew back up. "Now, use a wing attack on it!" Azure then swooped down, hit Seedot on the back and it looked as if the Seedot went in to hibernation. "It's using bide, so use another wing attack, it will probably fell it!" Once more Azure went and hit Seedot, and this time it looked like it had fainted. The Seedot shook his head and then strutted back were it had originally came from.

Lemonade could see the Pokemon Center from were he was standing. He started sprinting, because he thought of his two other Pokemon that would be waiting for him there. He pushed open the door and saw the Nurse sitting behind the desk with his pocket monsters sitting on the counter. He went up to the desk and she handed them to him. He thanked her and he ran up the stairs to his room.


"I CAN'T BELIEVE IT!" Lemonade shouted as he was searching his room, "That greedy little pig stole my money! And my Elekid hat! I LOVED THAT HAT!" When Lemonade first got in his room he saw that all of Jax's stuff was gone and only a third of his money that he left behind was still there. He'd searched everywhere in that room for his missing items, but they were not there. He decided to go talk to the Nurse to see if she saw Jax leave.

"Yes, he left a couple of hours ago, he seemed to be in a rush," Nurse Joy said.
"Did he say were he was going, or why he left? I need to know this because I think he stole my money and my favorite hat," Lemonade said to the nurse.
"No, he just handed me the room key and left the center. I don't know why he would try to do such a thing," said Nurse Joy with an aura of shock around her.
"Thanks, Nurse Joy, I can't understand why either."

Lemonade went back to his room to think about it. He got inside, locked the door and went to lie down on his bed. He looked at the clock and saw that it was almost 9:30, and he was getting tired. He noticed that next to the bed was a note. He picked it up and it read:

Lemonade,
I'm sorry I had to leave. There was an emergency that came up in my family. I know that we were planning on battling Mindy and Jaima tomorrow, but I'm not going to be able to make it. Just double battle them yourself, I know you can do it! About your money, I needed it to get a ticket home. I don't have any money, seeing as I didn't win any from Mindy the other day. I hope you understand.
~Jax

P.S. I really like your hat!


"That's great and all, but I NEEDED THAT MONEY!" Lemonade shouted after reading the letter. He decided that he could worry about it in the morning and needed some sleep.

▲In the Morning▲
8:00
It was breakfast time so he rushed down stairs to eat. He had some Fruity Pebbles for breakfast and while he was down there saw Mindy and Jaima fiddling around with a new Pokegear. He went over to talk to them and said, "Nice pokegear, is it new?"

Mindy was startled when Lemonade appeared right next to her, almost in her face, asking a question. "Uh...Yes. Jaima got it for me. It's really cool..." she said, losing her train of thought. The Pokegear was still amazingly new to her. Mindy has having a lot of fun with it. But she could play with it on the road to Gigarte. She finished up her breakfast and put her tray on the assembly line leading to the dishwasher. She returned to the table, where she found Lemonade and Jaima talking. Something ticked in Melinda's mind ticked, that made her think of that horrible boy that she battled two days ago. Mindy decided to ask Lemonade where he was, because she didn't see him in the vicinity. Don't get her wrong. She didn't want to see him; not at all. But she could not help but notice that he was missing and not with Lemonade. "Hey lemonade," she asked, "where is that annoying boon that battled me before? Wasn't he with you?"

"Hey Lemonade," she asked, "where is that annoying boon that battled me before? Wasn't he with you?"


"Jax, yeah he... well.." Lemonade said a little scattered, " I don't know really how to say this, so here it is. Jax left me hanging at the Pizzeria and came back here and stole my money and my cap. I don't know the exact reasoning of it, but he left this letter."

Lemonade pulled out the little piece of paper with Jax's letter on it and handed it to Mindy and Jaima to read.

Jaima put the last of his omelet into his mouth while reading the letter. His scowl deepened considerably as he did so. "Why that slimy no good..." He pressed his lips together and grunted, sitting back in his chair and tossing his chopsticks onto the tray. "That's rough, man."

His hand reached down to his belt and fingered the pokéballs clipped to it, tracing the decorations he'd painstackingly put on as he'd caught or was given... actually, had he caught one yet? He hadn't. He'd have to fix that. Mercury certainly didn't count, as she'd pretty much caught herself.

Jaima looked around, leaned in, sighing, and said as quietly as he could, "You have enough to eat on? I can lend a hand if you need it..."

Melinda's face turned red when she read the note that the rude boy left for Lemonade. After reading it, she concluded that the wretched creature's name was Jax. "That horrible evil little creature Jax! The gall of him to leave you such a note. It just makes me furious!" she yelled. She looked down at her Pokegear, as it was ringing. The screen lit up and read: "10:00 A.M." The screen then blinked and read, "ALARM" several times.

"Uh oh." Mindy sighed. "It looks like we're gonna have to get going if we are to leave on time Jaima." she said. "It was fun staying at the Pokemon center, but we have to have our battle now to stay on schedule." Melinda showed them her Pokegear. Already, she had the Calendar function set up. Mindy had blocked their day into time slots. "We have one hour for the battle, which we should start in 15 minutes," she said, referring to her calendar. "After that, we leave for Gigarte. We should arrive in Gigarte at around 4:45 P.M. Sorry to break up this gathering, but I really don't want to get to Gigarte late." Mindy announced sternly. She picked up her things from the table, put Jaima's dish away, and waited by the door for the other two.
