We're just taking a lunch break. >Would you like to join us?" Damian responded "Sounds good" while Drake nodded. The young trainer set down his backpack and started to look through it. "I knew I forgot to get something. I donít have any pokefood." The Dragonite responded immediately. "Alright, give me some cash and Iíll go get some. I wanted to try Brockís brand, been hearing good things about it." Sarah Jane smiled once again as she said to Drake "You donít need to get some right now. I have some extra." The Dragonite shook his head. "Actually, Iím just making an excuse to leave. The more time I can keep my tail from being a chewtoy, the better." At this, Sarah Jane gave a small laugh. "Spunkyís been quiet, and I think that heís more interested in eating at the moment." As if to illustrate her point, the Male Nidoran was starting to look into Sarah Janeís pack. Drake turned from looking at the small poison pokemon. "And after heís finished eating, heíll be hard at work earning his name Iím sure. If itís all the same to the pair of you, Iíll just go pick up the pokechow." The Dragonite hastily collected the money from Damian and waved while heading off to leave. As Damian sat down, he started his part of the conversation with "So you were doing some training?". Above the young trainerís right shoulder Bulletproof seemed to echo him "Magne?" <TBC> Jeff Hauser* *Sig Sold Seperately
