Kat raised an eyebrow at him. "Excuse you?" she stuck her tongue out at him. "Over self-confidence is bad, Spec." She grinned. *snip* > Spec looked around. "So, is there anywhere to go so you can bring me up > to speed, or what?" "Umm.." Kat thought for a second. "Hey Mari.. You think you could leave us alone for a while? I have some serious shit to go through.." Mari sighed and nodded, walking off back toward the stadium. "Who's she?" Spec asked. "A friend." Kat replied. "I met her right before mom died." Spec sweatdropped. "When was this?" "Um.. A week or two ago? Hold up, hold up. I'm going to start at the beginning.." Kat sighed and closed her eyes, concentrating. "I don't remember some specifics.. I don't know why, it's really weird." She sighed again and continued. "Back in Fuschia city, I remember going to a graveyard for some reason.. I found my dad's grave.. And the woman who killed him.. She attacked me, I guess, because people told me I died. The next thing I remember is being at home, on Cinnibar, with Mom and a really weird feeling, I still don't understand it." Kat took a breath and kept going. "I met Mari on my way to the Cinnibar gym.. After I won a battle there, she and I went to the beach for an afternoon, then went back to my house so that I could get some stuff to come here, to meet Sarah Jane and the gang. When we got there, mom was dead and that same woman, the one who killed dad and apparently me, had killed her. Mari beat the woman-she was a member of Team Rocket- up, and Officer Jenny came and got her.. Then Mari and I started on our way up here.. Near Rosetta town, I called Jenny and asked her to put up that note for you.. I figured you'd go there to look for me." She stopped again to catch her breath. "Do not ever make me talk that long again." She panted. -- Jen, hoping she got the recap of events right...
