Let's go to lunch!" > > They all nodded and walked to the Pokémon Center dining room. > As the quadro(??) ate, Poncho hurried over to the counter, whispered something to Nurse Joy, and suddenly the radio was on. She mumbled a half-distinguishable "Thank you," and waited for a song to play over the commercials. "And here's 'In the End' by Linkin Park!" Suddenly she burst to life and sang to the song wholeheartedly with a beautiful voice. Jason dropped his fork with a clatter on his plate, his jaw slack. Amber and Vix still talked and laughed, while Solo looked at Poncho to Squirt and back. "How come you can't do that?" he growled. "Cause I ain't no silky-voiced lunatic like that thing!" "I tried so hard, and got so far, but in the end it doesn't even matter, I tried so hard and got so far, but in the end it doesn't even matter..." sang Poncho. Slack-jawed and staring, Jason lept up from the table and just watched Poncho sing. When it was over, it switched to "Side" by Travis, then "Everywhere" by Michelle Branch (OOC: She's from Sedona, in AZ where I live! Gotta love 'er...), and then more commercials. "AMAZING!" Jason shouted. "BEAUTIFUL, GORGEOUS!" Poncho took a step back at the onslaught and said in her squeaky voice, "Well, I, uh...that is, I had to sing in Pokemon Centers for yen when Vixxie was poor...and I uh, got real good..." Jason picked her up and turned to Vixxen. "You taught her?" "Oh, no. She's self taught. She enjoys it very much." "I see, well, you're hired!" "Hired?" Poncho asked. "You can sing, and beautifully I might add! And I have a band, a Pokemon band, and you can be the lead!" "Erm, ok!" So finally they finished, gathered up their Pokemon, and left the center to find the gym. Amber hopskipped around, feeling 100% better. She twirled and grinned and breathed in the fresh air. "Wha...It's such a nice day!" she grinned. The people on the street gawked at the three Pokemon people in the street, with the one staring suspisciously at everyone, one dancing and hopskipping, and the other walking casually as he was _normal_! One woman stopped Jason and asked, "And you're...ok travelling with...them?" "Oh sure, they're wonderful! We get along really welll. It's not their fault they are this way..." "Oh. Ok then..." and she hurried away. Darkfang chased his tail playfully, and Pocco was walking with Poncho, talkin' Pika. Dabbler bobbed up and down, grinning and exchanging jokes and snappy coments with Squirt obviously enjoying his company. Velocity was darting around breathing fire briefly, and finally they came to the gym. ~Lookee!~ Cyanide cried. ~Big ol' wormies for me to eat!~ "No, those are statues! Who ever is the leader here must train bug Pokemon..." TBC Finally, a slight plotline, with nothing going on hardly! lol; I was getting really stumped so I puzzled it out...and yes, that IS the kind of music I listen to! Linkin Park, Limp Bizkit, and P.O.D., Travis, Michelle Branch, and Korn, they all RULE! Incubus too. -- ˙Ř˙ŕ
