By this time, Sarah was getting involved in the charades game as was Kitsu. Keaton was starting to get a little impatient, but after some persuasion, joined into the game. "Was it me, or was Drake a bit too calm about doing that?" Bob asked. "Probably, but the rider was a Rocket." one of the othere stated. "Point taken. ... Oh yeah, my name's Bob" He said, holding one hand out and scratching the back of his head with the other nervously. Amber decided to be the brave one and stuck out a claw. "Well my name is Amber ..." She started. She then proceeded to introduce the rest of the group with her. "So where are you heading?" Bob asked the group in general. "Well, the next gym is in Ecruteak, so we're going there next." Jason said, answering for the group "Would any of you mind terribly if I tagged along with you guys?" Bob asked kindly. "I'm going that way anyway and it would be nice to travel with somebody else aside from my pokemon friends." "Well I personally don't mind, but we do sort of attract a bit of trouble." Amber said. "All right. Maybe something interesting will happen then." Bob said. Before anyone could physically say how weird that sounded, a voice over the park's PA system boomed out. "All entrants into the Level 25 and under race, please report to the starting gate in 20 minutes." "Cool, maybe my Sandshrew will want some exercise." Bob said "Wait, there's ANOTHER race?" Amber cried out. TBC ------- Clayton
