"A Bellsprout tossed Cliff somewhere over Cerulean City!" Smasher hurredly answered. "We gotta find him!" Morgan looked over at Cerulean City. "Must've been one strong Bellsprout," Morgan commented. They all ran back across Nugget Brindge and into Cerulean City. "Any idea where he went?" Ema asked. "I saw him flying over in this general direction," Smasher said. The four of them skidded to a stop. The street in front of them forked into three separate directions. "This is an odd looking intersection," Morgan commented. Smasher thought fast. "Okay. Morgan and Ema, you take that road," Smasher said, pointing to the right fork. "Shuriken, you go that way. I'll take this road." They all ran off in separate directions. To be continued... I've been having a hard time getting on-line lately. It's now very late and I'm very tired. Whatever happens, don't find Cliff yet. I'm planning something. -- Chet "Tech" Weaver.
