Aerie watched Lynkeru creep away, then looked back at Kitsu. Both tasks were important; both tasks called her attention. And then there was the little problem of dwindling energy reserves. "Aerie..." Kitsu began. "Kitsu, we're both tired. If we tried to have a heart to heart, I'm afraid we might say things we'd regret." Aerie shook her head. "We're just going to have to sleep together first." Alex sweatdropped. "Talk laaadah," Aerie yawned. "Sleep now." She collapsed into the arms of the wereninetails, who rolled her eyes. "Anyone know which room is Dee's?" One deafening chorus of silence later, Alex responded, "I'll take her." "Thanks." After handing the sleeping girl over, Kitsu leaned over and gently pecked her on the lips. Alex frowned. "What?" "I think Aerie needs help with more than one relationship." Alex hefted the half-ditto and began heading for the elevator. Keaton snapped his fingers. "Drat! Missed it!" "Keaton," Kitsu sighed, "don't start with me." She pocketed the pokeball for study after some sleep. "Huh? Oh, Aerie. Look, you deal with that, especially if there's a chance she's going to throw off our trail again. Whoever the sword's really reacting to was probably in that room before we grabbed her." Ehm, by now, had shadowed a certain full ditto down to the medical deck, sensing another of its kind in his body, and tried to use its proximity to temporarily jam Lynkeru's radar. TBC?

No stealing. For now...] [NS: What he said. Personally, I have no problem with it, but Aerie is going to be tempted...]
