He got up immediately, gathering his things, grabbing a donut, and walking down toward the Cerulean water. Boys walked by as he was sitting down. Kevin threw a pebble into the water. It rippled outwards. Kevin sat thinking of what to do next. He tried to recall what little he knew about trainers who traveled. His dad's voice suddenly filled his mind. "Kevin, when I was your age, I went on my Pokemon journey. I got pretty good, I earned 6 badges. But I never did get the 7th. I couldn't get out to Cinnabar in time..." He remembered some of it now. The badges. The gyms. Traveling. 8 badges. And the Pokemon League if you won. Kevin set out to see if there was a gym, in this town of Cerulean. He stopped a boy, with six Pokeballs at his side. "Excuse me, is there a gym around here?" The boy looked at Kevin, sizing him up. Then he pointed. "Misty's Water Gym, right there." Kevin nodded his thanks, then hurried off. -------- Sig v.1.6A Deathclock says I die June 23, 2059.
