25. Chapter 25

We made it back to the western gate before the sun began to set. The gate guards spotted me and let me through before I could signal them to open the gate. I recalled my Pokemon before I entered the city-state. When the guards saw the condition I was in the trainer in command asked me if I needed to go to a hospital. I assured them that I was fine and just needed to rest up. The commander reluctantly backed off after that and let me go to the train station. I decided to head back to the Trainer District instead of going to the Central District to report the mission completion. I wanted to get something to eat and shower. Since the deadline for the mission was tomorrow I had time before I had to report to the mission office.

When I made it back to the Trainer District I headed straight to the Pokemon Center for a quick meal. I noticed that there was a handful of trainers standing in front of the Center talking. When the trainers saw me one of them broke off and ran up to me. I recognized Fred almost immediately.

"Jacob!" he called cheerfully. "I was wondering when you would be back. I heard that you went on your first solo C-rank mission today? How did it go?"

"It started out rough but I completed it," I responded. "Why are you so cheerful?"

"You just made it back from the Wilds right?" he asked instead of answering my question.

"Yeah I did," I responded.

"Then you probably haven't heard about your brother," he stated, still cheerful.

"Bobby?" I asked. "What happened to...?"

I paused for a second. I recalled Bobby mentioning to me yesterday that he was going to the Gym today to take his D-rank exam. I had forgotten all about it while I was out on my mission. I honestly didn't think he would really try to take his exam this fast. Once again my brother surprised me.

"He passed?" I asked Fred.

"Yup," he said. "He's in the cafeteria with Hugo and Ginnette basking in congratulations. A lot of us middle rank trainers think he has the drive to make it up the ranks like you do. He's definitely the best out of his year group."

We stood in silence for a moment while I thought about the situation. Finally I nodded to Fred and excused myself. I entered the Center and headed straight to the cafeteria. I glanced around the room and spotted Bobby sitting at a table near the center of the room. Hugo and Ginnette were sitting on either side of him. He was surrounded by other trainers. They looked like they were having a lively conversation.

I quickly grabbed a plate of food and made my way to the table. Ginnette saw me first. She waved to me which caused everyone at the table to glance over. One of the sitting trainers stood up and offered me his seat. I thanked him and sat down. The other trainers all said their goodbyes and left us alone.

"Jacob!" Bobby said. "I passed the D-rank exam! I'm a D-rank trainer now!"

"So I hear," I said. "I didn't really think that you would take the exam yet. You only just managed to tame Sting."

"I knew that Sting and I could pass it already," he said. "It was easy."

"Good work," I said. "Don't let it go to your head though. Being too overconfident can cause you to make mistakes on missions."

"He's right," Hugo piped in. "Do I have to tell you the story about my first Pokemon again?"

"No," Bobby said. "I understand that I have to take even simple D-rank missions seriously. I wont let this victory affect me in the field."

"Good," I said.

"Lighten up guys," Ginnette said. "Let him enjoy the moment. He has a good head on his shoulders. I don't see him making careless mistakes on missions due to overconfidence."

"Thanks," he told her.

"I think we're all forgetting something," Hugo said.

We all turned to him for an explanation.

"Today was Jacob's first mission as a C-rank trainer," he explained. "His first solo C-rank mission. Remember?"

"That's right!" Ginnette exclaimed. "I did forget about that due to Bobby passing his exam. Sorry."

"It's alright," I said. "It was just another mission."

"You are looking a bit roughed up Jacob," Hugo noted. "How did it go?"

"It started out rough," I admitted. "I was having a hard time finding Foongus to capture. Once I captured the first one and Shade and Blaze got the scent they were able to find more easily. I got more than enough to complete the mission but I haven't gone to the mission office yet. I was planning on going tomorrow morning but I think I might change those plans."

"Why?" Bobby said. "Is there something else you want to do first?"

"Actually there is," I answered. "Remember what we talked about before? About you needing to capture another Pokemon soon before Sting evolves?"

"Yeah," he said.

"I think that tomorrow we should head out into the Wilds to take care of that," I explained.

"Really!?" he asked, excited. "That sounds awesome!"

"I agree that Bobby needs to get another Pokemon soon," Ginnette began, "but why put off going to the mission office to receive your pay? You can take care of it quickly in the morning before going to the Wilds. Is there a reason for waiting?"

"Actually, there is," I said. "I didn't mention it yet but while out on my mission Shade finally evolved into a Mightyena."

"Really!?" Bobby asked.

"And you're just now telling us?" Ginnette asked.

"It's about damn time," Hugo stated.

We all turned to look at him.

"What?" he asked. "Jacob has had him the longest out of his Pokemon. Shade is the only one that was never stored away so he has had more training than either Blaze or Azure. I'm surprised that Azure was the first one to evolve. I was starting to think that there was something wrong with Shade."

"Even Pokemon from the same species can evolve at different rates," I pointed out. "Besides, you've had Cora almost as long and she hasn't evolved yet either."

"I'm pretty sure that she is strong enough to evolve any time she wants," he said. "I think that she is stopping her evolution for some reason. I think I know why but I'm still trying to think of a way to get her to let the evolution happen."

"Why-?" I began.

"Can you guys talk about this another time?" Bobby asked impatiently. "I want to see Shade!"

"Fine," I said.

I quickly finished my meal. We left the Center and went to the nearest empty training ground. I released Shade from his Pokeball. I heard Ginnette gasp when Shade materialized. Bobby's eyes grew wide. Hugo just examined Shade from were he was standing.

"He's big," Hugo said.

"Well, Mightyena are bigger than Poochyena," I stated.

"That's not what I meant," he said. "I meant he's bigger than average for a Mightyena. He's a least a foot taller than wild Mightyena. He looks a bit bulkier too."

"He's right," Ginnette said.

I studied Shade for a moment.

"You're right," I said finally.

"Can I pet him?" Bobby asked.

"He's still Shade," I said. "Go for it."

Bobby approached Shade slowly and cautiously pet his head. Shade reared up and knocked Bobby to the ground. Hugo and Ginnette both tensed up but I stood calmly. They calmed down when they heard Bobby laughing. He was rolling around on the ground while trying to keep Shade from licking his face.

"He didn't give you any trouble when he evolved?" Hugo asked.

"He tried to get me to submit to him," I admitted. "I stared him down until he backed down. After that I had no problems. Like I told Bobby, he's still Shade. He's just bigger than he was before. He's the main reason I'm holding off on completing the mission. My little apartment was cramped enough when he was a Poochyena but he's almost four times bigger than he was before. We really need a bigger place. I still have some mission Pokeballs left. While we're out in the Wilds looking for a Pokemon for Bobby I'll be looking for more Foongus to earn more money."

"You're taking Bobby to the forest tomorrow?" Ginnette asked.

"We should be fine," I said. "I know were the Beedrill nests are. As long as we avoid their territories my Pokemon should have no problem protecting us. I'll be carefull. I'm not taking any chances with Bobby's life."

"I'm coming with you," Ginnette stated. "You're attention will be divided between Bobby and the mission. I'll be focused on helping Bobby and keeping him safe."

"Try not to coddle the kid," Hugo told us. "Remember, he's a D-rank trainer now. He'll be taking his own missions now. He needs to be able to protect himself and stand on his own. My advice is to hang back and only interfere if he gets in over his head."

"You're right," I said. "I take it you wont be joining us tomorrow?"

"I have a mission in the morning," he said. "You guys will be fine."

We spent the rest of the evening talking and watching Bobby play with Shade. Hugo and Ginnette eventually said their goodbyes. Ginnette promised to go to my apartment early to meet up with us. Once they left I recalled Shade and Bobby and I headed back home. Once we were home Bobby and I released our Pokemon. I looked around the crowded apartment. With Azure and now Shade bigger than they were before we really needed to move into a bigger place. I would start looking tomorrow after I'm done with the mission. For now, we all got settled and went to sleep.
