There came a flash of light, and Nori dropped to the floor beside
girl looked around, blinking, clearly confused. Her skin was blackened,
clothes were sooty; she was covered in cuts and bruises from head to
Sarah Jane frowned, revisiting the thoughts she'd had about Nori earlier
day. She was about to say something, but Nori reacted first, jumping to
feet, and rushing at Sabrina.
"Why did you bring me back? Why did you let it get away? If you've
mind, you know that this is a matter of life and death!"
Sabrina's eyes narrowed, and with a wave of psychic energy, she sent
hurtling into a wall.
"I have no vested interest in you," she scowled, "Or anyone else, for
matter. I merely sought to rid my gym of *that*, for the duration of the
Nori followed Sabrina's pointed finger to Meowth, who was peeking its
from between the backpack's zippers; snuffling around, and trying to
find a way
out of the bag.
"Yeah?" Nori felt defensive, for some reason. "Whaddaya have against my
She leapt to her feet, and started back towards Sabrina; but her body
mid-step, and refused to take any of her subconcious commands. Nori
for a moment, then gave up, and resigned herself to stand in place.
"Are you going to behave yourself?" Sabrina asked, a slight smile
through on her stony facade. She turned back to Sarah Jane, and
Sarah Jane and Nori faced Sabrina. Sarah Jane became rather
uncomfortable. She didn't want to discuss her newfound abilities in
front of Nori... or the Meowth.
"You had something you wished to discuss with me," said Sabrina. Sarah
Jane nodded, unsure of how to suggest she and Sabrina move somewhere
where they could talk in private. <> Sarah Jane heard in her mind. <>
"I have three psychic Pokemon. A Kadabra, a Hypno, and a Mr. Mime. I
want to be sure that I raise them in the best way for competition. I
was told you could advise me on this," said Sarah Jane aloud. <> she thought.
"May I see your Pokedex? That way I can see what you've done with them
so far." <>
"Here," said Sarah Jane as she passed the Pokedex to Sabrina. Nori
listened to their discussion on psychic Pokemon only half interested.
Couched in the discussion, Sarah Jane and Sabrina had a lengthy
telepathic discussion regarding her new abilities. Occasionally Shields
chipped in something from his experience.
"I would suggest trading your Kadabra so it can evolve into an
Alakazam. You can trade it with someone for the evolution, then return
it immediately afterwards." <>
"Well, that's something to consider, since I really don't want to give
up Sigfried." <>
"Vary your attacks. If one of your Pokemon uses Psychic, another should
use Psywave. That will help keep the opponents off guard." <>
"Well, thank you for your advice," said Sarah Jane as she took back her
Pokedex. "You've given me a lot to think about."
"Please come and visit the next time you return to Saffron. I would be
interested to see your progress," said Sabrina.
"Are you finished?" said Nori.
"Yeah," said Sarah Jane as she waved to Sabrina. The two walked out.
"You two seemed to hit it off," said Nori.
"I guess we had something in common," returned Sarah Jane cautiously.
They went to try and find Damien and Jon.
