From: Alyssa <> Subject: [PW!] Departing Psychic City Date: Friday, April 23, 1999 9:35 PM "Say what? You're going back to Cerulean?" "Thass right. I got an E-mail from Bill today. He said he might have a way to cure me, and I can't pass that up. Sure, I like my Ponyta form, but I can't transform at will." "What about Karasu? What if she comes back and finds you gone?" Alyssa Halver looked up from packing stuff into her bottomless fannypack to grin at Mars, her talking Abra. "That's why you, m'friend, are staying here." "WHAT??" "You heard me." "What if you get hurt? Or you transform and someone tries to catch you? I won't be there to help!" Alyssa smiled a little at the Abra's loyalty and the slight aura of worry she felt from him. For all their bickering, Mars was easily Alyssa's most loyal Pokemon. "Look, I know you're worried. But I'll be fine. Ponytas are fast, so I'll be able to get away without a battle, hopefully. Becides, I'll be keeping Mace and maybe Neko out, so people should get the hint I'm not up for capture. Cerulean isn't that far away, so you can stay in the Pokemon Center until I get back. I need you here so if Karasu comes back or anyone else comes and asks for me or I get any messages, you can be here and answer for me. Kays?" The little psychic sighed, defeated. "Fine. Just take care of yourself, okay?" "I will." Alyssa gave the Abra a quick hug and then zipped up her pack, putting it around her belt. She called Mace out and then left the room. ((Sayonara, Lyssie-chan,)) she heard in her mind. ((Sayonara, Mars-chan,)) she returned with a grin before exiting the Center and heading away from the yellow city. (OOC: Okay, I need someone to interact with here. Karana-kun, I'd particularly like some help from you. All you have to do is join up with Alyssa on her way to Cerulean. She'll morph just before reaching Bill's house, incidentally. And anybody else in the general area (between Cerulean and Saffron) is welcome to join up with me too. <gets on knees> I need to interact!) -- Lyssie Obssessive fan of Raichu, Mew, and James-sama "There really must be a society against cruelty to James." -- Maria (I agree! Only YOU can save James from Jessie's paper fans of death!) "I admit, I set him on fire once with my magic paper fan." -- Corynn "If you took a Mega Kick to the most sensitive part of your body, how eager would you be to jump up and run after a Pokemon?" -- James, from an IM roleplaying session "Yes, ma'am, I know everything but the answers." -- Peppermint Patty "Pretty mother, so graceful in the water. Too bad I have to kill you." -- Tentacruel, from one of my fanfics "Fungus Terpsichoreus Kawaiius!" -- Me "For some reason, I seem to be losing my liqui-ibrium!" -- James (well, how would YOU spell it?)
