Meanwhile, Nise-Murasaki had noticed the young trainer's glances in her general direction. Actually, Nisemon had noticed that BOTH the young men in the diner had been looking, but the one who was serving seemed busy. The one sitting down who had the pokeball seemed the more likely selection. And what an easy target! Splash kept furtively looking over to where Nisemon was sat. Well, he was trying to be furtive, that was easy to see.

That trainer had ceased his glances in the Ditto's direction, and was now glaring at a small Eevee that was gleefully pawing at something on the ground. It occurred to Nisemon as realisation dawned that the gun the Eevee was playing with could quite possibly go off, but that did not concern the Ditto. There was no threat to a lifeform made out of protoplasm, that was certain. What was worrying Nisemon was the current lack of attention being offered by the trainer. Nisemon felt spurned. And that did not feel good. So the Ditto was going to act now. The next thing Splash saw was the woman with the body of a supermodel (painfully thin yet somehow incredibly alluring) advancing towards his table. *His* table? Surely not. He quickly checked behind him to see if there was any other possible target for the woman's attentions, but there was nobody else there. So he turned back round, just in time to see nise-Murasaki leaning on the table with one hand, while looking directly at him. "Hi!" said nise-Murasaki brightly. "I noticed you looking at me, and thought I'd come over." ('Not a good excuse,' thought Nisemon. 'I really have to buy a book of chat up lines.') "Anyway, what's your name?" she asked. "My name's... my name's... actually, names aren't important, are they?" ('Damn, damn, damn,' thought Nisemon. 'I never actually asked for that girl's name...') Splash did not know what to think, so did not respond. And the woman was beginning to look flustered, but she soon regained some degree of sanity, which was good by Nisemon's standards. "Anyway," she said. "Are you going to buy me a drink?" -TBC? - Shimarisu Sent via Deja.com http://www.deja.com/ Share what you know. Learn what you don't.
