19. Chapter 19

I woke up very early the next morning thanks to Shade. He woke up before me and began licking my face until I finally woke up. When I tried to cover myself he just bit down on the blanket and pulled it off me. I sat up and checked the time before glaring at him.

"It's not even 6AM yet," I told him. "The sun is not even up. Why did you wake me up this early?"

He moved to the kitchen area and began barking. Figuring that he was hungry, I sighed and got up to join him. After I poured some of his food into a bowl and set it down for him I filled my kettle with water and put it on the stove. I turned on the stove then sat down at the dining table to wait for the water to boil.

"I don't have to be at the western gate until 9AM," I thought. "I'm going to need a lot of coffee or I wont be able to function."

Shade finished with his food then sat down next to me. I looked down to stare at him a moment.

"New rule," I told him. "Until the sun has gone up you are no longer allowed to wake me up. It won't kill you to wait a hour or two for your food."

He whined before going back to the futon. He jumped on it and laid down before closing his eyes.

"Nice," I muttered.

Once the water was done boiling I made myself some coffee. After downing the first cup I prepared another cup and began making myself a simple breakfast. Once the food was done I sat down to eat and finish off the coffee. By the time I was done eating and cleaned up after myself the sun was up. I quickly dressed and moved to the futon to prod Shade. He opened his eyes and stared at me sleepily.

"Let's go outside," I said. "Lilith needs to eat too. We'll hang around the training grounds until it's time for the mission."

He didn't even move from his spot as I recalled him into his pokeball. I grabbed my backpack and then left the apartment. After walking for a few minutes I found an empty training ground and released both Shade and Lilith. He immediately began exploring the training ground while she just floated in front of me.

"Food," was all I said.

I took out some of her food and set it down on the ground. She slowly floated down and began to eat. I began to follow behind Shade as he explored. Once Lilith was done eating she slowly floated behind us. We continued wandering the training grounds until it was time to head to the western gate. I recalled both of them and made my way to the train station. I took a magnet train and made it to the gate with 20 minutes to spare. Fred had not yet arrived so I waited outside the guard station for him. While I was waiting the trainer in charge of the shift kept me company. Finally, when there was only two minutes left until 9AM, Fred ran up to the gate.

"Sorry," he said to me breathlessly. "My errands ran later than I thought they would. I didn't get much sleep."

"It's alright," I said. "You ready to go?"

He nodded. "You have your mission pokeballs?"

I patted my backpack. "All set."

"Then let's head out," he said.

The gate shift supervisor wished us luck and signaled the trainer manning the gate to open it. We moved passed the gate and stopped as the gate closed behind us. In front of us we could see the path that led to the forest. Fred pulled out four pokeballs and released his Pokemon. A Poliwhirl, Swellow, Rhyhorn and Golbat appeared in front of us. I couldn't help stare at the Golbat and think about Bitey.

"Well?" he asked.

"Huh?" I responded. "Oh."

I pulled out my two pokeballs and released Shade and Lilith. Shade tensed up as he saw the other Pokemon before I calmed him down. Lilith just looked at everyone and then ignored us.

"What's with that one?" he asked me while pointing at Lilith.

"She's not really adjusting well to having a trainer," I said.

He frowned. "Can you trust her to watch your back?"

"Yes," I said, staring at Lilith. "She knows what will happen if she turns on me."

Lilith shot me a glare before she went back to ignoring us. Fred nodded after a moment.

"Let's get started then," he said.

The two of us began walking towards the forest with our Pokemon spread out around us.

"Have you been to the forest before?" Fred asked me after walking in silence for a few minutes.

I nodded. "I took my Ordeal in the forest," I said.

He winced. "Damn," he said. "The forest is actually worse than the mountains when it comes to the Ordeals. I'm sorry."

I shrugged. "I'm not," I said. "I wouldn't have gotten Shade otherwise."

"True," he said. "That Poochyena is crazy loyal to you. You really lucked out with him."

"I know," I said. I glanced over to Lilith who was out of earshot. "I just wish Lilith was more cooperative. Honestly, I don't really trust her outside her pokeball unless I have Shade with me."

"Some Pokemon just can't be fully tamed," he said. "And I don't mean species-wise. It's possible that a different Pumpkaboo would not have given you any trouble."

"Any advice you can give me?" I asked him.

He shrugged. "Give it a little more time," he suggested. "If she remains uncooperative you might have to either put her down or see if you can find another trainer that will trade for her. Someone else might have better luck."

I nodded. "I'll thing about it," I said.

After walking for a bit longer we finally reached the edge of the forest. We stopped before entering. Fred reached into his backpack and took out two radios and handed me one.

"Here," he said. "These are special radios that have a feature that we can use to triangulate each other's location. I don't want us wandering too far from each other."

I took the offered radio. "I thought we would be moving through the forest together?" I asked.

He shook his head. "It will be better if we have a little distance between us," he said. "We'll make less noise that way and wont alert too many Pokemon of our presence. We'll remain close enough that if one of us is in trouble the other can quickly move to their location to provide backup. Just keep your radio ready in case of anything."

I nodded slowly. "That makes sense I guess," I said. "So, what's the plan?"

"The Pokemon we're looking for will most likely be up in the trees," he said. "We both have Pokemon that can either fly or float up and knock the Pokemon down. Caterpillar Pokemon are not really difficult to capture so you wont have to weaken them too much. Just be careful not to accidentally kill the Pokemon you're trying to capture."

I nodded. "So we need either Caterpie, Wurmple, Sewaddle or Scatterbug right?" I asked.

He nodded. "Weedle would be acceptable too but I'm not brave enough to go after any," he said. "If you do come across any Weedle you should retreat quickly. They never stray far from their hive. If they alert any Beedrill to our presence then we're in trouble."

I nodded. "Got it," I said.

"Check in every 15 minutes," he said. "Between the two of us this shouldn't take very long. Let's give ourselves four hours or until we've both used up our mission pokeballs."

I nodded again. We walked through the forest together for a few minutes. Finally, Fred wished me luck and moved away from me. I kept my eye on him until I could no longer see him through the trees. I turned to Shade and Lilith.

"Right guys," I said. "We're looking for certain Bug types. Keep and eye on the trees but be ready in case a Pokemon on the ground tries to rush at us. If you spot one try to let me know without alerting the Pokemon. If it's one that we need I want Lilith to use Astonish to try to knock it from the tree. Once it's on the ground Shade will use a weak Snarl on it. Our objective is to capture the Pokemon so try not to kill them."

After getting confirmation from them we began slowly walking through the forest. I kept my eyes on the trees but would periodically scan the area around us. After walking for a while Shade made a soft sound to get my attention. I turned to the direction he was looking and spotted what he was staring at after a few seconds. I almost missed the Caterpie as it's body blended in with the leaves it was currently munching on. The Pokemon didn't seem to notice us.

"Lilith," I ordered quietly.

Lilith glanced at me before slowly vanishing from sight. Shade and I waited for a few seconds for Lilith to start our plan. Just as I started to wonder what was taking so long she appeared suddenly next to the Caterpie and let out a shout while releasing waves of Ghost type energy. The surprised Caterpie was knocked off the branch and fell from the tree. It landed with a thud on the ground.

Shade moved quickly for his part of the plan. Once he was close enough he used an underpowered Snarl on the Caterpie which was just starting to try to right itself. The Caterpie was knocked over again and I threw one of the mission pokeballs at it. The Pokemon was sucked up and the ball shook a couple of seconds before stopping.

I squashed the desire to yell in triumph. Instead I walked over to the pokeball and picked it up. I moved over to Shade and began to pet him.

"Good job," I said. "Both of you."

Shade wagged his tail happily. Lilith just gave me a bored look. I stopped petting Shade and we continued our mission. Every 15 minutes either Fred or I would radio each other to check in. I ran into several Pokemon while looking for more caterpillars. Many of those Pokemon tried to attack me but were chased off by Shade. At one point I actually walked into a Spinarak web and came very close to being the Pokemon's meal. Luckily Shade was able to kill the Spinarak before it could actually attack me.

By the time we reached the two hour mark I had managed to capture four more Pokemon. I captured another Caterpie, a Scatterbug and two Wurmple. After capturing the last Wurmple I started to get the feeling that I was being watched. I kept glancing out of the corner of my eyes whenever I thought I saw movement. A couple of times I could have sworn I saw a flash of white but when I turned to look I saw nothing there. I began to grow nervous and I could tell my emotions were affecting Shade as well.

"We only need one more," I told them. "Once we capture one more we can meet up with Fred and then head back home."

We continued walking a bit longer when Shade suddenly stopped and began to sniff the air. He turned and began walking through the trees slowly. I was curious of what he sensed and began to follow him quietly. He stopped suddenly behind a tree and I crouched down behind him. I carefully glanced around the tree a saw what Shade tracked down. I almost couldn't believe my eyes. In a small clearing I saw an orange canine Pokemon with black markings. The Pokemon had its full attention on what was left of a Skitty.

"A Growlithe," I thought in disbelief. "What's a Growlithe doing in the forest? They normally live in grasslands."

I continued to stare at the Pokemon until I felt Shade nudge my leg. When I looked down I saw him staring at me with an expectant look on his face. I turned around and saw Lilith staring at the Growlithe with a look I couldn't decipher. I turned back to the Growlithe.

"There's no way I can pass up this opportunity," I thought. "I have to be careful. Lilith has a type disadvantage and Shade is smaller then that Growlithe."

"Lilith," I said quietly. "Use Astonish on that Growlithe then immediately follow it up with Confuse Ray. Whether the Confuse Ray takes or not I want you to back away after that. Understand?"

Lilith slowly made an affirmative sound. I turned to Shade.

"Ready to add another member to our pack?" I asked him.

He made an affirmative sound as well and stood staring at the Growlithe intently. It was almost done eating the Skitty. It was time to act.

"Now Lilith," I said.

Lilith vanished from sight. A few seconds later she appeared in front of the Growlithe and landed a direct hit. The attack didn't seem to do much damage but it caused the Pokemon to flinch. Lilith quickly shot a Confuse Ray at the Growlithe then floated back a few feet.

"Shade! Assurance!" I ordered.

Shade charged at the Growlithe while gathering his Dark energy. The Growlithe turned to face him and opened it's mouth, releasing dozens of tiny fireballs at him. The Ember attack hit Shade and caused him to veer off with a yelp. He dropped and began rolling on the ground.

"Damn!" I thought. "The Confuse Ray didn't take!"

It was the Growlithe's turn to charge at Shade. I could see it opening its mouth and getting ready to Bite Shade.

"Double Team!" I ordered.

Shade stood up facing the charging Growlithe. He quickly darted to the side just before the Growlithe landed it's attack. Shade began to run around the Pokemon while making real looking afterimages. The Growlithe kept spinning around trying to spot the real Shade before it stopped and sniffed the air.

"Shit!" I thought. "It's using Odor Sleuth!"

"Shade! Move!" I yelled.

My warning came too late. The Growlithe leaped at Shade and bit down on one of his back legs as he tried to dodge. He let out a loud yelp as the Growlithe began shaking his leg.

"Sand-Attack!" I ordered.

Shade managed to use his front paws to dig up some dirt and kick it behind him. Some of the dirt landed directly in the Growlithe's eyes and it let Shade go with a yelp. It tried to use it's own paws to wipe the dirt form it's eyes.

"Howl!" I ordered. "Then use Payback!"

Shade quickly let out a howl that increased his attack power. He then began gathering Dark energy while converting the pain he was in into more energy. He lunged at the Growlithe and hit it hard. The Dark energy plus the Howl powered attack was enough to send the Growlithe back several feet. It landed hard before standing back up. It stood facing Shade but held one of its front legs curled up protectively next to its body.

"It's injured Shade!" I yelled. "Use Shadow Ball!"

Shade stood still and concentrated. His body began to glow, this time with purple energy. Once he gathered enough Ghost energy, he formed it into a ball and released it at the Growlithe. It tried to dodge but with its injured leg it couldn't move fast enough. The attack hit it on it's side and sent it flying back again. It landed on the ground but didn't stand up this time. I worried that Shade killed it by accident at first until I saw that it was still breathing. I quickly pulled out my spare pokeball and tossed it at the Growlithe. The ball hit the Pokemon and sucked it up. It shook several times before finally stopping. I stared at the ball for a few seconds before dropping to my knees and taking a deep breath. Shade walked up to me while favoring his injured leg.

"We did it," I said.

He barked once before he laid down next to me. I quickly examined his injured leg.

"It's not bad," I reassured him. "It just needs some Potion and some wrapping. That will do until I get you back to the Center and heal you. But first," I said.

I stood up and began walking towards the pokeball. I couldn't help the wide grin that was on my face. I just captured an uncommon Fire type Pokemon.

"Wait until Hugo and Ginnette hear about this," I thought.

I reached the pokeball and was about to pick it up when I saw a flash a white at the corner of my eyes again. This time when I turned to look at it I saw a white form rushing up to me. It raised one of its limbs as it was about to reach me and I instinctively raised an arm in defense. The creature brought down its limb and I heard a crack a second before I felt burning pain radiate from my right arm. I fell back with a yell and got a good look at my attacker. It was a Mankey. The Pokemon was staring at me with an enraged look in it's eyes and was breathing hard.

"Why was this Mankey following me for so long?" I thought as I cradled my arm and began crawling away from it. "Unless...this can't be the same Mankey that I almost caught on my Ordeal!"

The Mankey jumped at me with the intent to finish me off. Just before he hit me a dark form intercepted it in midair. The Mankey landed back a few feet. Shade stood protectively in front of me growling at the Mankey. The wild Pokemon focused it's rage on Shade.

"Shade! Assurance!" I ordered.

Shade darted forwards readying his attack. The Mankey just stood there waiting. Just as Shade leaped to attack the Mankey, it moved to the side and grabbed Shade in midair. It then began spinning while it kept it's grip on Shade.

"No!" I thought. "That's Seismic Toss! It will do extra damage to a Dark type like Shade!"

I quickly looked around until I spotted Lilith. She just floated in the air watching the events unfold.

"Lilith!" I yelled. "Help Shade!"

Instead of moving to obey me she just gave me a cruel look. She then turned back to watch just as the Mankey released Shade and he went flying. He landed hard several feet away from us. My heart froze for a moment until I saw Shade trying to get back on his feet. I let out a relieved sigh before I saw that I now had the Mankey's full attention again. It slowly made its way towards me. I began crawling away from it again.

"Lilith!" I yelled. "Help!"

Lilith just stayed put. She was clearly enjoying the situation while feeding on my fear. I suddenly remembered the radio in by pocket and quickly took it out. Unfortunately, when I tried to use it all I could hear was static.

"Damn!" I thought. "It must have been damaged when I landed!"

"Lilith!" I begged.

The Mankey was on me. It looked down at me while raising an arm to finish me off.

"Air Cutter!" a voice yelled.

We all turned to look in surprise just as the attack hit the Mankey. It was sent tumbling away from me. Once it stopped, it struggled to stand while facing the new threat. The Mankey was bleeding from several cuts that were made by the Air Cutter. Fred stood at the edge of the clearing with his Golbat hovering in front of him. His Rhyhorn and Poliwhirl stood on either side of him. The Mankey rushed forwards intending to go down fighting.

"Aerial Ace!" he commanded.

From the opposite side of the clearing a blue blur flew at Mankey. Fred's Swellow hit the Mankey from behind and it fell forward. It struggled and failed to stand.

"Stomp!" Fred commanded.

His Rhyhorn moved to obey. It rushed up to the Mankey and reared up on its hind legs as it reached it's target. The Mankey looked up just as the Rhyhorn brought down its front legs on him. A second later I cringed as I heard a loud crunch and saw the Rhyhorn crush the Mankey under its feet. It was dead instantly.

"Thanks," I told him breathlessly.

"Air Cutter!" he ordered.

I froze in shock wondering what Fred was doing until I saw his Golbat's attack hit Lilith who was about to attack me from behind. The attack did a great deal of damage. She was dripping ectoplasm on the ground and could barely remain floating.

"I had a feeling that she would turn on you someday," Fred said calmly. "I just didn't think it would happen this soon. She's your Pokemon. What are you going to do about her?"

I turned to stare at Lilith. She was looking at me pleadingly. I turned to Shade who had just managed to limp to me. He was staring at Lilith with an angry look on his face. I turned back to Lilith.

"Do you remember what I told you I would do I you ever tried to attack me again?" I asked coldly.

She began making begging sounds.

"I told you I would give you only one more chance," I continued. "Now that chance is up."

I turned back to Shade.

"Finish her," I ordered calmly.

Shade gathered all his remaining energy and released a Snarl attack. Lilith attempted to escape but could not due to her injuries. The attack hit her and she let out a shrill scream. She stopped screaming suddenly and her body dropped to the ground. We stood watching as the body burst into emerald flame and was slowly consumed. Once there was nothing left both Shade and I dropped to the ground. Fred quickly kneeled next to me.

"Are you okay," he asked.

"I've had better days," I said.

He prodded my swollen arm causing me to wince in pain. He shook his head.

"Looks like a broken arm," he said. "When we get back we'll take you to the nearest hospital and have them take care of it. Don't worry, they have a special Potion that heals broken bones. Your arm will be fine in a few days."

I nodded. "Great," I said. "By the way, how did you know I was in trouble? My radio wasn't working when I tried to call for help."

"I figured as much when I wasn't able to get through to you," he said. "I finished capturing six Pokemon for our mission and was already on my way to you. Good thing your radio was still sending out a signal and I was able to triangulate your location. I got here just in time."

"Yes you did," I said. I sighed. "It's my fault. I was so caught up on trying to capture a Growlithe that I did not pay attention the my surroundings."

He looked surprised. "You caught a Growlithe?" he asked.

"Yeah," I said.

"Lucky," he said.

"Not so lucky," I said as I motioned to my arm and Shade.

"I guess so," he said. "I guess we're calling it a day. I managed to catch six Pokemon to fulfill the mission requirement. How did you do?"

"Five," I said.

"Great," he said happily. "That means we each get an extra $100 on top of our mission pay."

"Good thing too," I said. "I don't think I'll be able to take on any missions with my main arm broken."

"You can still take some easy low risk missions if you want," he suggested. "In any case, we should get you to a hospital to get that taken care of."

"The Center first," I said. "I want to heal Shade and the Growlithe."

"You first," he countered. "Just put Shade back in his pokeball. He wont get any worse while in there."

I was about to object before he interrupted.

"I outrank you remember?" he asked. "Don't make me make it a direct order."

I slumped. "Fine," I said.

I recalled Shade back into his pokeball and stood up with Fred's help. We started to make our way back to the city state with his Pokemon protecting us. Luckily it was my arm that was broken so I didn't slow us down. By the time we made it back it was early afternoon. Fred waved off the concerned trainers at the gate and took me straight to the nearest hospital. Fred's diagnostic was correct, I had a broken arm. The doctor set my arm and then wrapped a cast around it. He then gave me a nasty tasking potion and told me to return in a week to have the cast taken off. Fred and I thanked the doctor and left the hospital. We went to the nearest train station. Fred stopped me as we reached the station.

"Let me take your mission pokeballs," he said. "We don't both have to go to the mission office since we were on a single mission. I'll hand in the pokeballs and complete the mission for us. The pay will be deposited into your account. Go back to the Center and take care of your Pokemon. Then go home and get some rest. That's and order."

I awkwardly took out all six pokeballs and handed them over. I thanked him for everything then got on a magnet train. When I made it back to the trainer district I went straight to the computer room in the Center and sat down at a station. I placed Shade and the Growlithe's pokeballs in the pokeball device and got the healing program started. While they were being healed I scanned the Growlithe's pokeball and then brought up her information.

Species: Growlithe, The Puppy Pokemon

Type: Fire

Gender: Female

Age: Three Years

Nature: Adamant

Summary: Growlithe is a quadruped, canine Pokemon. It has orange fur with black stripes along its back and legs. The fur on its muzzle, chest, belly, and tail is cream-colored, and there is an additional tuft of cream-colored fur on top of its head. Growlithe's coat is noticeably longer on its chest and tail. It has gray eyes, a black nose, and large, round ears. Its forepaws have two visible claws, while its hind paws have three toes each. Each paw has a brown pad.

Growlithe will fearlessly defend its territory from others. It drives threats away fiercely barking at or biting them, and even challenges larger, stronger enemies. Growlithe also has a powerful olfactory sense. It is able to smell the emotions of others, and never forgets a scent once smelled. However, strong, unpleasant smells can disable its sense of smell for short periods. Growlithe lives in grassy plains.

"A female Growlithe?" I thought. "That's quite a catch. I'll take her to the training grounds tomorrow to start working on her."

Once the device was done healing them I decided to obey Fred's order and went back to my apartment. As soon as I entered I released Shade from his pokeball. He rushed up to me as soon as he appeared. I bent down to pet him and let him sniff my arm.

"I'm okay," I told him. "I just have to take it easy for a week. Don't worry about me."

He barked at me before moving to the kitchen area. I gave a short laugh.

"Okay," I said. "You deserve a good meal for all the work you did today."

I went to the kitchen area and took out his food. I gave him a double portion and he dug in. I put his food away and walked back over to the futon. Fortunately, I hadn't folded it back into its chair mode so I didn't have to struggle with it now. I managed to strip down to my boxers and laid down. Once Shade finished with his food he moved to the futon and jumped on. He was asleep in minutes. I just laid there thinking about everything that happened today.

After about a hour I heard someone knocking on the door. I groaned and got up. Shade just rolled over and took over the spot I was on. I just shook my head at him and went to the door. Thinking it was Hugo and Ginnette, I opened the door while just in my boxers.

"That is not how I taught you to answer the front door," my mother said from the hallway. My brother was standing next to her trying not to laugh.

"Mom!" I squeaked. "Bobby! What? How?"

"Where are your manners?" she asked. "Invite us in."

"Come in!" I said quickly.

I rushed back to the futon and shooed Shade off it. He grumpily complied and went over to Bobby. Bobby kneeled down and began petting him. I struggled to switch the futon back into its chair mode while favoring my broken arm. Finally I managed to do it and brushed off the futon before offering it to them.

"What happened to your arm?" she asked me as she sat down. Bobby sat down next to her with Shade's head in his lap. I grabbed a dining chair and moved it over to sit in front of them.

"Just a small accident," I lied. "I just have to wear the cast for a week. It's fine. What are you doing here in the trainer district?"

"I was fed up with all your excuses about why you couldn't visit us," she retorted. "I decided if you wouldn't visit that I would. There is no law that says a civilian can't come to the trainer district. I went to the center and asked about you. They gave me your address. You should have told me you had your own apartment. I would have helped you move in."

I just shook my head in disbelief. She was right about there not being a law preventing civilians from visiting the trainer district. I just never expected my mother to work up the courage to visit me here. I tried come up with something to say.

"Do you want something to drink?" I managed. "I have water or milk."

"I'll take some milk," Bobby finally spoke up.

"Water will be fine," my mother said.

I went to the kitchen area and got drinks for them. I quickly brought them their drinks.

"Thank you," I mother said.

"Yeah, thanks," Bobby said.

"So," I said awkwardly. "How are you? Everything okay at home?"

My mother frowned. Bobby just kept his eyes on Shade.

"What?" I asked. "What's wrong?"

My mother sighed. "I need to know what happened between you and your father," she said finally.

"What do you mean what happened between us?" I asked nervously. "Nothing happened."

"You're terrible at lying," she told me. "You got that from your father. I didn't buy any of your excuses about why you couldn't visit and I didn't buy any of his excuses about why he hasn't spoken to you since your visit. Jacob, I need to know what happened."

I reluctantly told her about my conversation with my father that day. She listened to me without making any comment but I could see her eyes grow cold as I spoke. Once I was done she sat quietly for a moment.

"I thought it was something like that," she said finally. "To think he would put you through that. Wait until I get home. He and I are going to have a long talk."

"Don't," I said. "I don't want any problems between you. Just let it go."

"I will not let it go," she said. "He is your father and should support you no matter what. I will not stand by and watch him put you through any hardships just because he is afraid of you."

"Afraid of me?" I asked.

She nodded. "That's the only reason I can think of why he is behaving like an ass," she said. "Don't worry about it. I'll handle your father. Tell me how your missions have been. Have you captured any new Pokemon?"

I told them about the Growlithe I captured today. I left out any information that would cause them to worry about me. Then I told them about the missions I completed recently. Once I was done talking I turned to Bobby.

"How have you been kid?" I asked him. "You haven't said much."

My mother frowned again. Bobby hesitated for a moment.

"I've been alright," he said.

It was my turn to frown. "What happened?" I demanded both of them. "What aren't you telling me?"

Bobby wouldn't look at me. My mother stared at me before sighing again.

"He's been having a hard time since your visit," she admitted.

"What do you mean?" I asked.

"A few days after your visit he let it slip to some of his friends that you released your Pokemon in our house and let Bobby pet him," she said. "Word of that got around and now most of the parents of his friends wont let them spend any time with him."

"What?" I asked dumbly.

"It's not your fault," Bobby said quickly.

My mother nodded. "It's not," she agreed. "It the parents fault for behaving so rashly. It's not as if Bobby has any Pokemon himself. I tried talking some sense into them but they refused to listen."

"So you have no more friends?" I asked.

He shook his head. "I still have some friends," he said.

My mother nodded again. "Not all the parents are punishing Bobby because of their ignorance," she said. "He still has a few friends."

"That's something," I said faintly.

"Don't worry about it," she said. "I'm sure it will all work itself out." She stood up. "I'm getting hungry. Why don't we find your two friends that you've been telling me about and head over to the commercial district. I'll treat everyone to a nice meal."

I agreed and quickly got ready to leave. I recalled Shade and led them out of my apartment. Fortunately, Hugo and Ginnette were in their apartment. They quickly agreed to come with us. My mother took us to a nice restaurant and we all spent an enjoyable evening together. I looked around the table and couldn't help the happy feeling at being surrounded by the four most important people in my life.
