Moon again?" asked Clyde. Beep... Beep... Beep... "We're looking for Moon Stones, numbskull," answered Bon. Beep.... Beep.... Beep... "Aight," accepted Clyde. "... Buh why ah we usin' a metal detector? Beep. Beep. Beep. "Moon Stone is made of various metallic substances," explained Ian. "Including nickel. By using the metal detector, we will find the gigantic Moon Stone discovered by Jesse and James several years ago." Beep. Beep. Beep. "Ah," said Clyde. Beep beep beep beep beep.... "I think we're getting close!" announced Ian. Beepeepeepeepeepeep..... "Right there!" Ian said, pointing with the metal detector's dish. "Shine thah torch on et so we cahn see et!" called Clyde. Bon swung the flashlight around, shining its light on the area Ian was pointing at. Clyde bent over to pick up the object. "What is it?" asked Bon. "A nickel," replied Clyde. Bon and Ian practically fell over. "Don't we have a map or something that will tell us where the Moon Stone is?" demanded Bon. "Unfortunately, Jesse and James didn't tell anyone where it is," Ian told her. "Frankly, I'd be surprised if they even remember where they found it." "Why do we need this Moon Stone, anyway?" asked Clyde. "Et's naught 'ike we have a Pokemon we could us et on." "WE don't need it," explained Bon. "But EVERYone who wants to evolve their Jigglypuff, Clefairy, Nidorino or Nidorina does. If we can find that Moon Stone, we could sell it all at outrageously high prices and rake in the dough! We'll be rich! Rich, it tell you! Rich!" "Y'know, ya seem tah have this preoccupation about bein' rich," Clyde pointed out. "Yeah," agreed Ian. "Whatever happened to plain, old power?" "It's called 'Capiltalism,' boys," Bon said. "First you get the money, then you get the power, then you get the Pokemon!... Or something to that effect." Ian's metal detector started beeping again. He swung it around as best he could in the cramped tunnel. The beeping got more persistant when the device was pointed in the general direction of.... something. "Its coming from this direction!" Ian reported. He marched off in the direction he was facing, quickly followed by Bon and Clyde. Beep.... Beep.... To Be Continued... I was thinking that we might be able to work better with this.
