> "Excuse me," an unfamiliar voice asked the two.

> "Bob Raiser, is it?" Peabody asked.
> "Yes?" Bob asked, a little curious about how someone would know his name.
> "My name is Peabody," the Aqua replied. "My partner here is Sven. We

> "My services?" Bob asked.
> "I assure you right now, you will be well compensated," Peabody replied

> "There you go again with the karma!" Sven shot. "I say we hit him with an

Meanwhile, walking swiftly away from the Aquas were Jeff and Bob.
"What'd they want?" Jeff asked.
"Well runt," Bob started. Jeff glared. "They want me to do their dirty work. You
know that grass attacks are great against water-types right?"
Jeff's look said "DUH!"
"Well picture a human ... capable of grass attacks ... with no second thoughts
about killing enemies ... in a base full of enemies bearing water-types." Bob
said taking a break between each part for added effect.
Jeff's stunned look was a clear indication that at least he got some of it. "But
you're a nice person"
"Did I look nice when I was ordered to kill you?" Bob asked seriously.
"Um ... no ...you looked ... scary"
"Exactly. I'm guessing those guys," Bob motionned to the Aqua left behind, "want
to turn the pyro's *air quote* creation *air quote* against them. Probably through
the use of Earthquake and a rock attack ... and I'm NOT in the mood to learn any
more new attacks."
Jeff switched to happy/hyper "New stuff? COOL!"
"Not really little bro. It's like a pain where I never had an ache. But if I don't deal
with it, it will try to take over again. And I fear that you'll be the first target."
"Tell you later, all right?"
"O ... K," Jeff said, downcast and not very conviced.
"Besides, we need to celebrate! You won and you did it with style. Now I
wonder where the others ran off to?" Bob asked himself softly
"Over there," An inconspicuous woman said, pointing in the direction where
Alex and Ben went.
"Thanks," Bob said, taking Jeff with them. He got about a dozen steps before
something clicked. "How'd she know? Oh no, not her again." Bob said, shaking
his head, and looking like a condemned man
"Like I said earlier Jeff -- Pains where you never had aches." Bob said, mentally
cursing while thinking about interesting applications for a Fury Cutter
Said inconspicuous woman turned out to be a familiar gym leader with a rather
feral grin. _This will definitely be interesting._ She then tuned into Bob's thoughts.
_Such language and violent thoughts for a breeder_
