The following morning, Jamie and Abi recommenced their journey towards Rouge City with the events of the previous night still on their minds.
"Hey Jamie," said Abi, "do you think you're ready for your first Pokémon Gym challenge once we arrive in Rouge City?"
"Uhm..." Jamie paused.
"Oooh, I wonder what this awkward silence means." Abi remarked before giving Jamie the opportunity to respond.
"WELL IF YOU GAVE ME THE CHANCE TO RESPOND!" blurted-out Jamie and then she sighed.
Jamie had just begun to train her team and she had no idea what to expect from Rouge City's Gym Leader. She had only battled two trainers so far in her journey, Angel, a beginner like her, and Abi, a more experienced trainer yet she did not battle Jamie at her full strength. Jamie realized that she needed to battle more Pokémon Trainers prior to challenging the Rouge City Gym in order to diversify her battle strategies.
"Abi I don't know if I'm ready," continued Jamie, "I think Riolu, Eevee, and I need to battle a few more Pokémon Trainers or else we may not stand a chance at our first gym challenge."
"That's fair," responded Abi, "I mean, I loved obliterating Pokémon Trainers' dreams when I was a Pokémon Gym ....
The sun set and Jamie and Abi had eaten dinner at their campsite. They were sitting beside a campfire that Abi had just prepared, which she started without the help from any fire Pokémon. Jamie was glad that she was not travelling by herself anymore, as she did not have to spend the evenings alone and Abi was quite an entertaining person to travel alongside.
"Hey Jamie, wanna hear a story?" Abi asked.
"What kind of story..?" Jamie replied.
"Well, a spoooOoooOOooky story," answered Abi.
"Hmm, what do you think Eevee?" Jamie asked her Pokémon.
"Eeee-vee!" replied the Eevee enthusiastically.
"Well I guess that means it's story time!" Jamie said.
"Oh pay attention closely, you will regret missing a second,"said Abi holding a flashlight towards her face.
"Abi the last time you said something like that, I caught myself a Pokémon," responded Jamie, "a.k.a. earlier today."
"Do you want to hear my story or not?" Abi replied pointing the flashlight towards Jamie's face, "I am the one trying to break the silence here!"
"Ok fine, I was just kidding," said Jamie, "please tell me the story."
Abi pointed the flashlight back towards her face and locked eye contact with Jamie.
Jamie and Abi were finally on route to Rouge City and Jamie's first Gym challenge. But before they arrived, Jamie knew that she needed some more Pokémon on her team in case her Eevee was defeated. The issue is that she has never actually caught any Pokémon before. And the only things she knows are from the videos that she saw at the Pokémon Trainer School.
"Jamie," said Abi.
"Yeah?" replied Jamie.
"You're petting your Eevee quite, erm, firmly..." she observed.
"Vee, vee, vee, vee," said the Eevee as Jamie forcefully pet it.
Could Jamie be nervous? Maybe it was best to ask Abi for some advice after all, especially since she claimed to have captured hundreds of Magikarp aside from the Pokémon in her party.
"Hey Abi," said Jamie, "could I ask you something?"
"Hmm... Is it about exacting revenge on one of your enemies?" replied Abi enthusiastically.
"Not that! It's about catching a Pokémon!"
"Oh, so it's a tutorial you're looking for? Then follow me."
The two walked over to a nearby stream and Abi pulled a collapsable fishing rod out of her fanny pack. She then tied a lure on to the fishing rope and casted it in to the stream.
"Watch closely Jamie,&....
Jamie looked up to where Rach was pointing. It was just an electric fan hanging upside down on the ceiling. Why was Professor Jasaan and Rach so concerned? And why was Sary laughing? Before she could understand the situation further Abi had already interjected.
"Why did you guys bolt an electric fan to the ceiling?" asked Abi loudly, "your designer is terrible!"
"That's not a regular electric fan," said Rach, "now prepare yourselves, Rotom can attack at any instance."
"Rotom? Wh–" questioned Jamie.
"Rotom, quit trying to escape the Pokémon Lab," interrupted Professor Jasaan speaking towards the inanimate object, "you lost the food eating competition fair and square."
"See Jamie, Rotom is a Pokémon that is sort of a troll..." Sary explained.
"Sary is correct," Rach added, "Rotom is able to possess many everyday appliances, so trapping this guy is going to be tricky."
As Rach spoke, she activated the 'Emergency Lockdown' switch within the room. The door slammed shut behind them, scaring Jamie's Eevee who was still in her arms this entire time. The electric fan on the ceiling did not budge, appearing completely the same.
"Could this fan just be a distraction?" asked Jamie.
"Don't think so," replied Professor Jasaan, "or else the object could not ....
The girls walked back over to the Pokémon Lab for their long-awaited tour of the facility. When they walked through the front door, Professor Jasaan was patiently waiting for Jamie's arrival since he was not aware of Sary and Abi's Pokémon battle which had just occurred. He was not concerned as he had just returned from his lunch break and had consumed enough Indian food to feed a family of 4 for a week.
"Hello ladies," said Professor Jasaan, "ugh, I'm stuffed..."
"Professor! We have a special guest with us right now!" Rach angrily whispered in to the professor's ear.
"Oh is it the one that hides in the bushes?" asked the Professor out loud.
"Score!" Abi exclaimed.
Jamie and Rach had a look of embarrassment on their faces, but to their surprise Sary remained quite lively. She was not disappointed at all by the professor's question. Even after the Pokémon battle she just had with Abi, it was nice to see her sister in a positive mood as well.
"Professor, it's the other girl," Rach instructed.
"Which one," asked Professor Jasaan, "Rach I don't think Jamie is that speci–"
"PROFESSOR!" interrupted Rach, preventing the insult he was about to mention in front of Jamie.
"I think she ....
After a few hours, Jamie and Abi eventually arrived to Soleil City and fortunately for Jamie, she had no more distracting encounters. However, this does not include the distraction from her thinking created by Abi as she did not cease announcing her vengeance plans at full volume. The girls decided to stop by Soleil City's renowned department store before visiting Professor Jasaan's Lab.
Jamie could still not ignore the encounter with the guy with the 'H' uniform which occurred earlier that day. She believed that her and Abi could possibly run in to him or any of his comrades at any moment, especially since this guy could have easily figured out where the two of them were headed. Surprisingly enough, Abi had not done anything to attract attention to herself since they arrived to Soleil City.
"OKAY JAMIE, THIS IS WHERE WE SPLIT UP!" yelled Abi waving her arms, "I WILL GO TO THE ITEMS FLOOR TO PURCHASE A NEW FISHING ROD AND MAGIKARP LURES!"
"Too good to be true..." Jamie uttered underneath her breath.
"WE CAN MEET BACK HERE IN AN HOUR, THEN HEAD OVER TO THE PROFESSOR'S LAB," said Abi, deliberately announcing their arrangements to all the shoppers surrounding them, "DOES THIS SOUND GOOD?"
Abi then walked away and left Jamie on her own. Jamie looked around herself and noticed all the kiosks on the first floor which sold an extensive assortment ....
The person appeared from nowhere and starting running at lightning-fast speed towards Jamie. She recognized the voice, yet was unable to get a glimpse of their face as they sprung in to the air.
"YOU WILL DIE TODAY CHOONG!" yelled the voice.
"WHAT THE HELL ABI?" yelled Jamie realizing who it was and quickly dodging the attack, "I AM NOT A MAN, STOP TRYING TO ATTACK ME.."
"OH! HELLO JAMIE!" Abi said and she then face-planted on the ground.
"Oh my god, are you ok?" Jamie said in reaction to Abi's failed attempt to attack her, "Wait a second, why am I trying to help you?"
"CAUSE WE ARE BEST FRIENDS THAT'S WHY!" Abi replied enthusiastically.
"Vee-vee!" said the Eevee who hopped off Jamie's shoulder to greet Abi since it recognized her scent from before and that was why it was not concerned.
"FIRST OFF, YOUR REVENGE SKILLS NEED IMPROVEMENT," Jamie said, "AND SECOND, I THINK YOU NEED TO STOP HANGING OUT IN RANDOM SPOTS WAITING FOR ONE PERSON"
"Oh well, I have nothing else to do, so I don't mind..." Abi replied nonchalantly.
"Well then..." Jamie said in a sigh, "I have to get going.."
"Ok see you!" Abi said and she hopped back ....
The girl who miraculously saved the day quickly ran over with her Sylveon and yelled, "is everybody alright?" Jamie gazed at this girl, who couldn't be much older than herself. It seemed like there were sparkles all around her, is what she seeing real? Maybe this is all a dream, maybe she hadn't even woken up for real yet?
"Oh there she goes staring at girls again," said Angel with a snarky tone.
"EXCUSE ME, I'M NOT THE ONE WHO WAS ABOUT TO DIE NOW WAS I?" Jamie yelled back at her neighbour.
"Yeah? Well-" but before Angel could finish her insult the girl who had just saved her life had finally walked over to the rest of the group.
"I hope you're all ok," said the mysterious girl. "We're fine," replied Jamie, "I don't think my new Pokémon is however."
"Oh dear, I think we need to get it to a Pokémon Center, stat!" said the girl.
"There's just one up the street from here!" said Courtney, "I'll remain here with Angel and the Professor. Rach do you mind taking Jamie to the Pokémon Center?"
"No problemo!" replied Rach cheerfully, "the nurse there is so sweet!"
"I'll come too!" ....
