"Will Ember be okay?" Mandy asked Nurse Joy.
"Yes, but she shouldn't have gone up against an Electabuzz! What in the world
were you thinking? She could have been killed! It's a miracle that she and that
oddish are still alive!" Mandy accepted the rebuke mildly. She was right.
"And as for you," Nurse Joy turned to Ron, "Were you dropped on your head as a
small child? A Weedle against an Electrode..."she trailed off then became loud
again. "You're lucky the knock didn't cause brain damage! And so close to
evolution, too! You're lucky it didn't stop her growth all together! She and
the caterpie are very close to evolving! You need to be more careful!" Ron was
silent. "Keep both of them out of their pokeballs for a week. They'll be fine
after that." Ron scooped up George and placed him on his shoulders and held
Cloe in his arms.
"What about Ember?"
"She'll have to avoid battles for about ten days. She should stay here
overnight though, just so we can watch her. You two can stay here."
"Thank you Nurse Joy," Mandy said. Amaranth said something about staying with
Ember, so Mandy let her stay. The two quietly left the room. Mandy walked out
onto the street and Ron followed. By now it was getting dark.
"Where are you going?"
Mandy sighed. "The shop we saw earlier. If we'd had some potions and antidotes
Ember and Cloe might not be so badly hurt."
Cloe cheeped from Ron's arms. "Cloe says there was nothing we could have
"That's as maybe, but we still need some potions and antidotes." The
conversation continued like this until something got in their path. The
something cleared her throat.
