"Hey, dude, you are out early." Travis said in greeting. "I saw you earlier headed out to the beach, but you looked pretty out of it. Sleep walking almost." "You are out pretty early yourself, if you saw me heading out there." Robert responded genially. "What were you doing out so early?" "Actually, I was just returning." Travis answered. "I slept out on the beach in a small stand of trees last night. I was on my way back to wake Becky when i saw you." "I see!" Robert said knowingly. With a wink and a friendly elbow to the ribs, he went on, "So what was her name? Anyone I know? Was it that blonde karate girl?" "Nothing like that." Travis assured him. "I just had something I needed to take care of, and by the time it was done, it was just easier to sleep out there." "I see." Robert replied disappointed that he didn't get a juicy bit of gossip. "So what were you up to this morning?" "Oh! I won a gym badge!" Robert replied showing off his new prize so enthusiastically he almost dumped the Mukrow riding his shoulder off his perch. "I fought the gyn leader Chuck first thing. This little fellow here finished off Chuck's Machoke to earn me the badge." "Ah, that is what he was doing out there. I saw Chuck when I was riding in. I never thought about challenging any of the Gym leaders while they were here. I've never had a gym match before." "Never?" Robert asked surprised. "You pokemon are remarkably well behaved, then. How is it that you have never competed in a gym match? What, do you play second fiddle to that friend of yours?" "Becky has never been in a gym match either." Travis informed him. "We have traveled and trained for a few years now. I figured I would raise my pokemon to decent fighting strengths, then sweep the gym's one after another just before the league championships. That way I would enter with a relatively unknown team." "Interesting stragety." Robert commented. Before he could comment further, his stomach growled audibly. "Oh! I haven't had breakfast yet! Time to go in and see what is on the menu!" "Go on ahead." Travis replied pulling the door open for him. "Becky should be down shortly. I'm going to run over to Oldman's for a second, then perhaps we will join you for breakfast." tbc? -- Worry's first SIG sig file ------------------------------------------------------------------ *"It takes a Worried man to sing a Worried song..."
