Nori blinked. "Oh...uh, yeah, sure..." She turned to follow him, and
motioned for her Magmar to do the same; but Magmar, once again worried
by the fog, was busy staring intently at the sky, as if it could clear
up the weather through willpower alone. It wasn't succeeding. Somewhat
irked, Nori grabbed it by arm, and started walking, figuring it would
either take the hint and start to follow her, or fall over on its face.
Magmar fell over on its face.
Nori sighed, and helped the Magmar to its feet, then started after
Robert again, who was now a good distance ahead of them.
"...Hmmm...You know," she whispered aside to Magmar, "I probably
shouldn't steal from him. He trusts me, and I don't betray people who
trust me, unlike Sarah Jane. Besides, it's not like he did anything
really bad to me that would warrant my stealing from him...not like
that little brat who tripped me, or that Rocket that made fun of my
"Mag?" Magmar cocked its head.
"You wouldn't remember anything about him. You probably don't even
remember the last battle you fought in...but that's okay, because
neither do I. So...what say we go to this party, and then we can go to
the Fuchsia Gym, and toast some bugs!"
"And then we can track down Sarah Jane, and kill her, and steal HER
Tauros. I'm sure that she has one, because she has all the luck when it
comes to life and catching Pokemon."
Nori glanced down at the baby Tauros, "It's not like I'm developing a
conscience or anything. I just don't wanna be saddled with this walkin'
poo factory until it's old enough to be of use. Besides, I only have
one spot open on my team, and that's reserved for Fushigidane, who's
still in Celadon. And it's wrong to separate a baby from its
parents...it'd end up clinging to me. Can you imagine how hard it'd be
to deal with a clingy Tauros? Here, you hold it." Nori dumped the
Tauros into Magmar's arms, and increased her pace to get ahead of it
before it could protest.
Magmar, who had stopped listening to Nori several minutes prior, and
was only feigning attention by randomly quacking "Mag" or "Mar" when it
seemed appropriate; spent the next several minutes trying to decide
what had happened, and what it should do as a result. Finally, the duck
Pokemon simply shrugged, cradled the Tauros in a fatherly fashion, and
hurried to catch up with its trainer.
