*Twenty Minutes Later*
"Oh Rosa, it's been a while," Emilia brings me into a hug. She has straight, brown hair to the middle of her back; green eyes; just a little taller than me.
"Yes it has," I smile.
"And I have news," she holds me out by my shoulders. "I'm pregnant."
"Really? Oh my goodness. Congrats!"
"A baby?" Bonnie asks. "When?"
"I'll have my baby girl in five months," Emilia smiles.
"I'm going to be an aunt," I smile.
"Does that mean we'll be coming back soon?" Bonnie asks.
"Oh yeah, Bonbon. We'll be back soon."
"Hey, since everyone's here, how about we make lunch and eat it outside," Emilia says.
"Like a picnic?"
"Yes, like a picnic."
*A Hour Or So Later*
"Thanks so much for having us," I hug Emilia.
"It was out pleasure," Tobias says.
"Your cooking is amazing Emmy," Bonnie says.
"Why thank you, Bonbon," Emilia smiles.
"Promise you'll be back before you leave," Tobias brings me into a hug.
"I promise. We'll be back before we leave. And we'll be back before the baby is born. Right before so we can be around when she's born."
He releases me from the hug, "I can't wait."
Then I grab Bonnie's hand and we start heading to the last person we're gonna visit today: Ash's mother.
We walk for about ten minutes before we reach Ash's mom's house.
"Can I knock?" Bonnie asks.
"Go ahead," I motion to the door.
Bonnie gives three good raps to the door, and then we wait.
After a few seconds, the door opens and we're met by Mrs. Ketchum and a boy around Bonnie's age.
"Rosalinda, hello. How are you?" Mrs. Ketchum asks.
"I'm good. How are you?" I ask.
"I'm fine. Come in," she ushers Bonnie and me into the house. Then she leads the way to the living room where everyone takes a seat somewhere.
"Hello Mrs. Ketchum. My name is Bonnie, but most people call me Bonbon. I'm Rosa's assistant back at Professor Sycamore's lab," Bonnie spills everything out.
"Why hello Bonbon."
"Mrs. Ketchum, who's the young boy?" I ask.
"Oh, this is Nathen."
"Hi," Nathen says. He looks kind of like Ash, but with brown hair and brown eyes.
"His parents moved here to work at the mall and I'm the only person around who can take care of him."
"That's very sweet of you," I smile.
"So, have you talked to Ash recently?"
"Did he tell you he found me?"
"I've talked to him once since coming home."
"Then you don't know the news."
"Ash thinks he's got a few more months before he's done with his journey over where he is. Then he's coming home."
"Of course, he's going to try and get you to come with him."
"I really doubt he only has a few more months."
"Me too, it'll probably be a little over half a year before he's done."
I sigh, "He's such a crazy boy." It's then that I notice Nathen and Bonnie are talking.
"Yes he is. Would you come back with him?"
"I think I would. I'd have to bring Bonbon and her brother though."
"That would be nice. We'd have more people in our little town."
"It's slowly growing."
"Yes it is. Which I'm happy for."
"I think Nathen and Bonbon are becoming good friends," I look over at them.
"That's so cute."
"It is. It really is."
