"Oh, I'm so glad you're here alright." ----- Rilli was taken up stairs to RK's room. She looked at the equipment and gasped when she she him lying there. "W..What happened?" Sabrina was on a deadly path. Some creature did something to here that could have killed her. RK helped but appartently the one who tried hurting her set a booby trap for anyone interfering. When he difused the mental bomb, a tidal wave of Psychic energy assaulted his mind. "Ever since that day, he's been here. Sometimes, he'd slip out of his coma and back in, but not for long. "Just the other day, he woke up again, and muttered 326 Alpha. I had no idea, but Bill thought his Pokepedia might have the answer. That's why I asked for your help. Where's Robert?" Rilli explained how they only had enough money for one ticket and happened to stumble across a couple events from last night. Erika shoook her head sadly. "I'm so sorry to separate you two. Please, as soon as I find out what to do, I'll send you back to wherever you need to go right away. I'll get you your money too. I don't want this to be any more burden on you then it already has. Now, let's see what he's talking about." Rilli opened the Pokepedia and looked at it. She hadn't used it much, so she wasn't sure what to do. "Umm 3, 2, 6, Alpha." The pokepedia jumped to life. "Accessing 326 Aplha... legends and myths. "The Clefairies have long been thought to be protectors of Mount Moon and the Moon Stones. One ancient group of people thought that they were also the protectors of life itself. "One legend indicates that once every hundred years, a Clefairy is born with a red scar across one eye. When this Clefairy used a Moon Stone to bond itself with a dying human, the legend says their souls combine into one, causing the Clefairy to be a highly more sentient creature. This new Clefairy usually has a task to perform. "By the time tables this legend uses, the last Clefairy to be born like this was born... 5 years ago. End record." ----- Erika sat motonless for a while. Rilli finally got her to make a sound. "Oh, sorry. Well, We need to find a Clefairy with a red scar on one eye. Well, I suppose I can get someone to find him for me." "Um, Erika..." Oh, I didn't mean to keep you. Come on, let's get you to your Pidgeot and get you to Viridian. I don't to keep you from Robert anymore than you need to be. Beleive me, I know what it's like to be away from someone you love. Rilli just followed her speechlessly. ----- Erika gave Rilli the 500 that she spent geting here and a couple hundred more to make up for the meal they had to missed out on. "Thank you Rilli. I've got work to do. Make sure to stop by and visit me if you're ever in Celadon again. Be that researcher RK had the feeling you can be!" She gave her a quick hug and started to hurry home.
