"I prefer my brains on the inside of my head, thank you very much!" In a deft maneuver, Keaton ducked into a sweeping kick. Kitsu dodged the kick, but the weight of the mace Aerie had changed herself into caught her off balance. She stumbled a few steps before falling face-first on the ground. "Wise man say," Keaton said in a sage voice. "Never run with sharp objects that alter your center of gravity." Keaton walked over to help his sister up as Aerie changed back to her usual human form. "Thanks," Kitsu said she got up. "That was a neat trick. How about this one?" Kitsu spun into her brother and gave him a hip toss that slammed him into the ground. "That's pretty good," Keaton admitted as he got back up. "But how about... Huh?" Kitsu had already run off towards one of the barns that held Pokemon with Aerie close behind. Keaton took off after them. "What's going on?" Aerie asked. "I thought I saw someone duck behind this barn," Kitsu explained. "I think he might be spying on us." The three of them ran around to the back of the barn. Much to their surprise they found a Golduck sitting on a bucket eating a sandwhich. "It's a Golduck," Keaton said. "Eating a sandwhich," Kitsu added. "Hey, have you seen any spies lurking about?" Aerie asked. The Golduck thought about the question for a moment before putting them all to sleep with a hypnosis attack. Afterward, a dark figure wearing a black sweatshirt with the hood up dropped down from the roof of the barn and landed next to Golduck. "Nice work," he said to the Golduck. "You know what to do." The Golduck put down the sandwhich and waddled over to Kitsu. It put its webbed hands on her head and began to probe her mind. About this time, Aerie woke back up. She looked at the Golduck and then to the stranger. "What's he doing to her!?" Aerie demanded. "He won't harm her," the stranger replied. "I need to find something out from her and it's imperitive that neither she nor her brother know I'm here." "What for?" "I can't tell you. You'll just have to trust me. I have her best interests in mind." "Like Hell you..." Before Aerie could finish that reply, a psychokinetic bolt threw the Golduck from Kitsu. It rolled to a stop at the stranger's feet. "Golduck," the Golduck said, rubbing its head. "Golduck gol." Keaton began to regain consciousness. "Damn," the stranger said. "Golduck, Teleport!" Before anyone could do anything, Golduck and its trainer vanished. Keaton sat up and looked around. "What happened?" Keaton asked. "That Golduck tried to scan Kitsu's brain," Aerie explained. "He was trying to find out something." "Find out what? That she has amnesia? She couldn't know anything important." "Maybe he's somehow linked to her amnesia, and your's. I think he was the same guy who came to the gym wearing that black sweatshirt." "I thought there was something about that guy. I wonder what he wants..."
