"Aw, cripes. It's too early to be startin' fights..." Nori mumbles, oblivious
to the fact that it's mid-afternoon. She nudges Anubis, who is curled up on the
couch beside her, and points in Electron's direction, "Anubis, Ember that thing
for me, will ya?" Anubis looks up from the magazine he's eating long enough to
hear his trainer out, barks twice in response, and completely disregards her
When Nori sees that Anubis has no intention of obeying her, she throws her
jacket on, scrambles over to where Set is standing, leaps protectively in front
of him, and wordlessly backhands the offending Magnemite out of the air.
Electron bounces twice, and rolls to a stop at its trainer's feet. "Maaaag..."
"Natu, natu!" Set chirps, ""
Nori, who probably wouldn't understand any of this, even if it was spoken in
English, scoops her Pokémon up with both hands, and begins to reprimand him.
"Now, Set. You shouldn't be playing with Magnemites. They're not as powerful as
Voltorbs, but they're still pretty dangerous. They can use THUNDER WAVE, and
"Tuuu..." Set sighs, beginning to get the feeling that he's talking to himself.
"Electron, are you okay?" Andy bends down to retrieve his dazed Magnemite, "You
shouldn't play with Natus. They're not as evil as Voltorbs, but sometimes their
Nori leers at him, "I couldn't help but notice you trying to steal my Natu. I'm
flattered that you like my Pokémon, but I just can't stand for thieves. Explain
Enimuram rejoins the group, "Andy, you were trying to steal her Natu? Why would
you want to do that? If it were a Quagsire, I could understand, but a Natu?
They're as low as Ampharos, for Magnallah's sake."
Andy blinks involuntarily. "What are you guys talking about? I wasn't trying to
steal that Natu. I wasn't trying to steal anything. And even if I was trying to
steal something, I wouldn't be after a Natu, because I already have a Psychic
Pokémon" He pulls David's Pokéball from his belt, "It's an Abra, want to see?"
Nori bristles somewhat at the mention of a pureblooded Psychic Pokémon, but she
swallows her anger, smiles, and responds amicably, "Sure. I'll wring its
"I said, 'don't change the subject'!" Nori snaps, "You tried to steal my Natu,
and I'm gonna make you pay. Let's battle!"
"You want to have a Pokémon battle?" This seems to Andy like a pretty stupid
decision on Nori's part, because neither her Houndour nor her Natu appear to be
battle-ready, and her belt is devoid of Pokéballs. "You sure about that?"
Nori raises her fists, "Who said anything about Pokémon? This is between you
Andy thinks this over, "Okay...don't take this the wrong way, or anything, but
are you completely nuts?" He lowers his voice, "You're gonna get us both kicked
out of here!"
As if on cue, Nurse Joy walks over. "I hope you two aren't planning on using
your Pokémon to settle a personal quarrel. I won't tolerate that sort of thing
in my Pokémon Center. It's disrespectful to both the trainers and the Pokémon!"
"I couldn't agree more." Nori takes the opportunity to proselytize, "People who
hide behind their Pokémon disgust me. This guy was trying to steal my Natu, and
I'm gonna kick his ass myself!"
Joy responds evenly, "Settling disputes by means of force is wrong, whether
Pokémon are involved or not. Now, find a peaceful way to resolve this matter,
or I'll have to ask you to leave." She nods empathetically, and starts back
towards her desk.
Nori shoots the nurse an audacious glare, but since she doesn't want to lose
her rooming privileges, she grudgingly lowers her fists. Besides, her anger
over Abra's existence has abated somewhat, and she's beginning to see a very
real possibility. She turns to Andy, and proffers a hand in truce. "I guess you
probably aren't a thief. I shouldn't have been so quick to accuse you." She
admits, "You know, I think we got off on the wrong foot. My name's Nori, I'm a
Pokémon Researcher. Tell me something: That Abra of yours, by any chance, does
it know Future Sight?"
