Alex looked at the shorter trainer before her in surprise, then figured
things out for herself. "Nori, right?"
Nori blinked, then asked, "How...?"
"You were battling alongside my half-sister earlier," Alex explained. "She
and I really don't keep secrets. Besides, no real reason to keep the pseudonym
now that the tournament's over." She offered a hand and said, "Alex Masters.
It's a pleasure."
"Likewise," Nori replied, taking Alex's hand.
The two briefly shook, just long enough for Alex to determine that she
couldn't scan Nori; Dark-type vibes, albeit nowhere near Trent's level, were
coming out of her. "Thanks for keeping an eye out on the guys, by the way. Cass
and I both appreciate it."
"It wasn't a big deal," Nori replied. "If you don't mind me asking, how'd
you come across a talking Murkrow?"
"We kinda ran into each other," Alex admitted. "He literally fell on my
head. My own fault."
"I'm not complaining about it," ShadowWarrior replied. He added to Nori,
"Alex is a good kid, admits to her own shortcomings easily. You two would
probably get along just fine."
"Perhaps," Nori noted.
"" Surtur noted.
Nori raised an eyebrow, and Alex quickly translated, "Surtur was bringing up
the fact that you aren't a big fan of psychics. Can't really blame you,
considering the general reputation. Sabrina's past actions haven't exactly
warmed the common man up to psychics."
Nori's eyes widened, and she asked, "You can understand him?"
"I've been with Surtur for a good chunk of my life," Alex replied. "I
figured learning to decipher his language would be easier than him learning
mine. Besides, I didn't want to force him to do something that he didn't want
"" Nosedive lamented.
Alex smirked, having figured out Nosedive's language as well a while ago.
Returning her attention to Nori, she asked, "Anyway, I'm pretty much going to
be around here on the searching for any sign of Smasher with a few others, and
we're going to need as much help as we can get. Would you be interested in
lending a hand?" With a small glance to Set, Alex pointed out, "I'm willing to
bet your Natu friend could seriously give us a hand."

[NS: They sound okay to me, Surtur especially. I just hope that I did Nori
justice. I'll leave it up to you to have Nori as part of the search or not.]
