*A Few Hours Later*
"It's been a fun couple of hours," I say as I stand up and start stretching.
"I can't believe I'm in a completely new region," Bonnie is doing some leg stretches.
"Pichu!" Pichu exclaims as she starts running around to get out some energy.
"It's just a car ride to my home town and our vacation can begin," I smile.
*Thirty Minutes Later*
"Welcome to Pallet Town," I step out of the car. Pichu and Bonnie hop out seconds later.
"This is super cool," Bonnie smiles. Then she looks at the house we have stopped in front of. "Is this your house?"
"It is," I smile.
"Miss, here are the suitcases," the taxi driver hands me both suitcases.
"Thank you," I hand him some money.
"Thanks so much," he smiles and tips his hat to me before getting back into the taxi and driving off.
"Did you tell your mom we were coming?" Bonnie asks as the three of us head to the front door.
"I did not. I thought it would be better to surprise her." We reach the door and I give three good raps.
About a minute later, the door opens. Revealing my mom. "Rosalinda, oh my, my baby girl," she pulls me into a hug.
I hug back. "Hello mom. How have you been?"
"Just fine," she holds me out by my shoulders. "Why are you here?"
"For some research and to have fun," I smile.
My mom releases me and looks at Bonnie. "Why hello young lady. Are you Rosa's helper?"
"I guess you could call me her helper. My name is Bonnie and I'm so happy to be here," she smiles as Pichu rubs into her leg.
"Bonnie has been helping me at the lab the past few weeks," I explain a little more. "She's been a great help."
"Well, that's good. What are you guys going to do for the remainder of today?" my mom asks as she ushers us inside.
"That's all up to Bonbon," I look at Bonnie. "What do you want to do?"
"Head on over to the Pokémon enclosure," Bonnie smiles.
"Okay, but before you girls head out there," my mom says. "I was just gonna stat lunch. Go wash up and then we can all have a home cooked meal."
"Sounds perfect," I smile.
*An Hour Later*
"This place is awesome," Bonnie says as her and I walk into the Pokémon closure. Pichu is staying home to help Mom make lots of different sweets for our time here.
"It is. So, where to first?" I ask.
"There's different areas?"
"Yeah, forest biomes, water places, caves, and many more."
"Let's head to the forest one first."
"Okay," I grab Bonnie's hand and we start walking towards the forest area. "I doubt we'll be able to go through the whole enclosure today. So we will be back tomorrow."
"Okay, sounds great. I wonder how the boys are doing."
"I hope they call us tonight."
"Keep hoping because then it just might come true."
I smile, "I know. I'll never stop hoping."
"Good. Hey, is that the start of the forest area," Bonnie points to something ahead of us.
"It is. Are ready to see a bunch of different Pokémon in one area."
"Ready as I'll ever be."
"We may even get lucky and see a legendary."
"Awesome. Now I'm even more ready!"
