Just outside the Cerulean-Saffron Checkpoint...
"I'm already back..." Gads sighed. That trip has been a lot shorter
then he expected. Then again, his travelling companion had been rather
tight-lipped the entire way. Gads looked over at the figure. Despite
it being daylight, he couldn't make out any of it's features. The wide,
fedora-style hat hid the face, and the black laboratory-style Saffron
Gym coat covered the remainder of it's body. Shadowy indeed...
"Say, why do you wear that getup all the time?"
After a moment of silence, the Figure actually decided to reply.
"What, this?" The figure gestured to it's clothing. "Miss Sabrina's
orders. I wouldn't make a good 'observer' if I could be easily spotted
"So, who have you been observing?"
Gads looked suprised, but then just shrugged. "How long?"
"That's my secret..." 'Better not tell him I've been following him
"Why me, then?"
"Miss Sabrina told me to. To learn more about those who live in the
Dojo. However, I noticed that you haven't exactly lived a 'typical'
life, even for a dojo member."
Gads chuckled. Not many Dojo members could be consitered the same
species as their Pokemon, nor could many float around telekenticially.
"True. So, why'd you stop observing?"
"You got involved. You're no observer, not anymore. You're now part
of this. I'm just wondering why."
"I... dunno. I mean, I see you suddenly appear and collapse. I
guess... I decided that not even something as lowly as Dojo member
deserves what's happened to you."
Gads smirked. "But I'm no Dojo member. So, the big question is: why
are you still around?"
Under it's hat, the figure blanched. "Eh... well..."
"Could it be a showing of interest, or compassion? You know, acting
on impulse and showing emotion of any kind isn't like a member of the
Saffron Gym." Gads was having fun with this...
"NO! Miss Sabrina never told me to follow any other! So, I continued
my duty and followed you!" The Figure voice, normally monotone, was
uncharacteristicly shrill this time.
"But wasn't your duty to follow a Dojo member? You could have
followed Mara..." 'Heh... can't admit that you're here because you
choose to be, can you?'
Suddenly, the security guard returned, and opened the gate to Saffron.
"Look, gate's open!" The Figure quickly bolted through, a laughing
Gads floating behind.
"Now you're showing fear of being exposed!" Gads continued down the
path to the Fighting Dojo, enjoying taunting his traveling companion.
