"But I'll have to go." Turning to >Damian, she continues, "Damian, do you want to come with me?" He takes a moment as he reasons out "Well, it would be a crimp in the testing schedule for the equipment, but since they had me scheduled for a year's worth of testing on this stuff, I can make it up later." He smiles warmly at Sarah Jane as he finishes his response then stops abruptly. He looks at Hito and asks "Will you be okay on your own?" "Huh?" Hito seems a bit surprised over the sudden change in things, but recovers enough to respond "Oh, uh, yes, yes I think so. I wasn't having any problems I couldn't handle before. Now that I have Lokon back and those Rockets are either in the hospital or jail, so I think I should be able to manage things for the immeadiate future." Meanwhile, Sarah Jane has gotten the reident Nurse Joy's attention "Hi, I just received a phone call and I found out I need to leave right away. Could you transfer my pokemon to the Saffron City Pokemon Center when they're healed?" Nurse Joy gives one of her usually cheerful smiles "Of course, it's no trouble. Will any of the others that came in with you be doing the same?" "Yes, he will." Sarah Jane indicates Damian. "Your boyfriend?" asks playfully. "I, uh," Sarah Jane stammers for a second, caught completely off-guard "I don't know, maybe." Having taken notice when he was pointed out, Damian comes up to the counter and asks Sarah Jane "Do we need to wait here?" Nurse Joys interjects "Your pokemon will be waiting for you at the Saffron City Pokemon Center when you get there." "I think we should get going then," Sarah Jane directs Damian towards the door "Whatever is going on, it seemed important." "You two have a fun trip!" Nurse Joy calls out in the tone of her namesake, adding a wink when Sarah Jane looks back. When the pair have exited through the automatic doors of the Pokemon Center, Damian looks at the Magneton hovering above his shoulder as usual. "Bulletproof, we need to Teleport back to the train station in Goldenrod. Think you can handle it?" "Mag." The Magneton tilts forward, as if nodding. It then voices "Mag magneton net.", before hovering expectantly. Sarah Jane then steps in close to Damian and explains "Bulletproof said we needed to be closer together so that it could be in contact with both of us." For a brief moment, the two stand looking into each other's eyes. Then Bulletproof lands on both their shoulders and they all glow briefly before disappearing. Jeff Hauser* *Sig Sold Seperately
