Robert begins to quietly sob, "Just like the rest of 'em! >Robert just isn't your cup of tea, huh, Rilli?" > >Mithril-rama grabs Robert's arm and tries to drag him over to the nearby >ranch.

With that final comment, he passes out due to the heat. *** While all this was going on, the group was still at the other house, planning their rides for the race. Jon, looking through his Pokedex, seemed undecided. Felix looked over. "Need some help?" Jon nodded. "I have two I think I could ride- Jolteon or Tauros. Tauros, is easier to ride. But it isn't as fast and I've never used it before. Jolteon might be hard to ride, but it's quite fast and obedient." Felix nodded. "Go with Jolteon. It's a sure bet." He smiled. As dusk began to fall, the group returned to the topic of the missing Pokemon. "Eh... I wonder where Robert and Rilli are..." Runt wondered aloud. "I guess it was kind of rude for us to just make them go alone... with that Dario guy..." Damian added. Lara returned from looking out the window. "I sure don't trust that Dario... but your friends sure looked smart. They'll be okay." "Maybe we should go after them," suggested Sarah Jane. There was silence, and the group grew uneasy. -------- Sig v.1.6A Deathclock says I die June 23, 2059.
