"Someone that doesn't want their minions to talk" ------- That evening was a quiet one in relative terms. The hot springs were judiciously used to relax and to have girl talk, or so Cassandra had put it. Either way it ended up being a girls-only thing. The guys had to settle for eating and practicing their respective martial arts Later on, when everyone was fed and relaxed, the part of the Search Party that remained were mulling over facts. "We know know where he's not," Derek observed. "So where's left?" Keaton asked, looking down at the map. Cass took up the teaching role, pointing to each location as she's mentionned it. "We've been to Littleroot, Rustboro, Lavaridge, and Fallarbor. Alex and her group have hit Dewford, Mauville, Verdenturf and the Rusturf Tunnel. If he was there, we would have been informed about it." There was a brief pause whil all those assembled let the facts and the impromptu geography lesson kick in. "That leaves Fortree, Lilycove, Mossdeep, and Sootopolis." Cass said, again pointing to the destinations mentioned. "And Evergrande should the guy gather all 8 badges, which seems unlikely." Derek pointed out, more for the sake of completeness. "Looks like Fortree is next then," Aerie declared. "Sounds like a plan. When do we go?" "Tomorrow."
