"Well, good luck, I guess. The way things are going, it looks like they
might have pulled the plugs on the contests. At least for the ones here. I
wonder if any other cities here might be having them?" Trousle said. He
took Lisa by the arm and walked a little ways away from the newcomer. "I
guess we might have to start saving up some money to get to Hoenn after all,
Lisa," he said with a big grin. "Think your dad might let us borrow some
money to take a trip to Hoenn?"
"Huh? Dad? No, I don't think he would do that. At least, not if it was
just us two..." Lisa trailed off her last sentence and started to blush.
She turned away slightly and added, "I mean, he's not too crazy about me
going off on journeys all over Johto, but at least I've stayed on this
continent. I think he's go slightly ballistic if I asked for money to go to
Hoenn." She gave a half-hearted laugh and continued to blush.
Trousle remained unaware of her blushing and said, "Well, it can't hurt to
ask him, really. I mean, he might even want to go himself. And then it's
even a chaparoned journey! How would that sound to you?"
"Yeah. That would be just fine, Trousle, " Lisa said plainly. She turned
back around to look at him and said, "Well, what about your parents? Don't
you have a mom or a dad somewhere around here?"
"No, I told you, I'm from Viridian City in Kanto. My mom is still there. I
awoke here after a two month coma. My mom is saving up to come here to get
me. In the mean time, she's given me permission to stay at the Pokemon
Center here. And if I need to go somewhere else, all I have to do is ask
her if it's ok and she can call the local Pokemon Center there to give me
permission to stay. So, it's not that difficult. I don't think it would
really be that hard for your dad to do the same for us. And if that's the
case, we can start off immediately. I have a little money saved up and it
might be enough to get us a ticket on the next ship to Hoenn."
"Two tickets? You would buy a ticket for me?" Lisa started to blush again,
but this time she didn't turn around. "Gee, Trub, I don't know what to
"Ah ..don't say anything. You're much cuter when you're speechless!"
Lisa fell over and was suddenly *very* speechless, but Trousle was already
walking back towards Amber.
"So, Amber. Are you going to hang around here? If we do get to go to
Hoenn, you're more than welcome to tag along with us. There's safety in
Lisa mumbled under her breath, "Yeah, sure. Safety in numbers. There's
safety in the number *two*, you know." She tried not to show her annoyance
as she walked back over to join Trousle and Amber.
