Upon reaching town, Bob caught up to Karl.
"Hey, *pant, gasp* wait up." Bob huffed out, taking the final few steps
needed to catch up.
"What are you doing here?" Karl asked.
"Would you believe I forgot to get something for supper?" Bob asked.
"Well then, I'm out for a cake or ingredients to make one. And you?"
"I thought I'd get something for Vixxen for her birthday." Karl said.
"Cool, well how about looking together. Two heads can be better than
one you know." Bob said, smiling.
"Couldn't hurt." Karl said, shrugging.
So on that happy note, the two boys walked into town. After a bit they
come into the massive Goldenrod Department Store. Upon going in the
door, there were big signs and a lot of lights. The pair come to the
sign, and study it.
"Hmm, the food's on the second floor." Bob said.
"The gifts seem to be on the fourth floor." Karl observed.
"Meet back here in an hour?" Bob asked.
An hour passed, and the two boys met back at that sign. Bob had a rather
large box, a smaller box and a bag, while Karl just had a bag. Together,
they walked out of the Department Store and down the road. Bob paused
in front of the Game Center.
"Um, we're too young for that Bob."
"Yeah Karl, I know. I thought I'd go sucker a favour out of my uncle."
"And who is he?" Karl asked, scratching his head with his free hand.
"Uncle Frank is the Move Tutor." Bob said grinning.
"And how are you going to convince him to do this for you. I hear he
charges a lot." Karl asked.
"Well, I AM his nephew. Plus, I have pie." Bob said, before going in.
A few minutes later, Bob came out of the Game Center with a huge
smile plastered on his face. However, his stuff to take back to the
Day Care was one pie lighter, as evident by the missing, smaller box.
"Told you. He'll be around around lunchtime tomorrow. He says to
save him a piece of cake." Bob said.
"Let's go back before something happens." Karl said, a bit worried
"I'm with you on that one."
A while later, the pair arrive back at the Day Care, where Vixxen was
immediately there to greet them.
"Hi guys, what 'chu got there?" Vixxen asked, happily.
"Pie, a lemon, leek, and pie." Bob replied, holding up the stuff
"You said pie twice."
"There's two pies."
Vixxen scratched her head.
This little exchange allowed Karl to slip by with his bag and off to the
room where Vixxen's other present is sitting, sucking on a grape or two.
In the kitchen, Bob added a bit of the lemon juice and the leek to the
pot, and left it to simmer the rest of the time. Walking back to the TV,
we find that now it's Amber and Jason duking it out on the video game.
"Got you now Amber." Jason said.
"Oh yeah?" Amber said, as she let loose the finishing move on Jason.
Rivet, who was watching cause he was hungry and it was a video game,
was laughing a lot.
"And you could do better Rivet?" Jason asked.
"In my sleep, man"
"That I'd like to see." Jason said.
Vixxen was watching the two of them play games. 'Something's going on
around here. Time to spy!' Vixxen thought, before getting up to figure
out just what everyone was up to.
