Dude, boss did that whole grillin thing in tha sand he does last night. Later days right?
Now you’re just trying to make me jealous.
Dylan playin in tha surf. I remember those days dude.
They were good days. I miss them.
That sounds awful, Quinn; I’m glad you’ve been spending more time with them in your adulthood, though. Perhaps we can start training them together? I was serious about tag-teaming, you know. We would be an amazing team together, what with your tact and my way of jumping straight into things concerning sparring after planning it to perfection. They have indeed. I suppose I’ve been enjoying them far too much to comment on exactly how incredible they’ve been.
Well, it’s hardly a competition when it comes to us - I think of it more as a fun way for us to learn more about each other’s skills and the art of double battling. Well, I went there with every intention to win but my Pokémons’ stats were so lowered that I lost after a few moments of battling Bryan Ryan- the fourth member of the Elite Four - due to the fact that I was careless; I forgot all of my healing potions, for Arceus’ sake! But I think that you would be a wonderful Champion if I do say so myself. Oh yes, I’ve truly found love with the art of Coordination. We must! She loves you, Quinn!
Me too. I think my life would be so different if I’d never joined the Lopez program…for one I doubt our paths would have ever crossed and that is probably the one thing I’m most thankful of at this point. I don’t know what I’d do without you Rach. I’d like that. I think of half your team as my team anyway. And I’m serious too…we’d need a bit of work, but I think we could be really great together.I mean…our teams. But without the adequate feedback, how do I know if you liked them or if I should just give up now?
It’s the hardest battle most trainers will ever face so it doesn’t really mean anything that you lost, other than the fact you were amazing to get there in the first place. Not to mention that if you’d tried again I bet you could have done it. But you have other dreams and I really respect that. I really hope so…it’s been my dream since the first time I saw a Pokemon battle. She hates me…or has a weird way of showing love.
I think dying inside is maybe a little bit of an exaggeration. But I really didn’t… It was a relief when Kurt left, okay? It was like a huge pressure was lifted off my shoulders, because I didn’t… It was never really Kurt I wanted to be with. Just things got confusing, when… I doubt you want to hear about this anyway, Quinn, so nevermind. I’m fine, really. Nothing to worry about. Yeah… sorry again. About the Rachel stuff, I mean. Well, still. I could have… you know, written, or sent you stuff, or…. something. But I kind of suck, so I didn’t, and yeah. I’m glad you’ve got her to take your mind off of stuff, then. Hannukkah presents? That sounds like a fun project. I guess I should do Christmas shopping. Thanks, Quinn. I appreciate that, but I’m still fine.
Maybe, but I was talking generally. If things are bad, I’m so reluctant to let anyone know because I don’t want to ruin their day or burden them, or even more stupidly…I don’t want them to know my life is anything other than perfect. I wasn’t talking about Kurt. I think a few of us are glad he’s gone. And I do…but it’s all about whether you want to tell me. I’m here for you…to talk to you about anything, so ultimately it’s up to you, Ry. You could have…but nobody did, apart from Rach and even then I’ve been really shitty about replying. I just really needed some time to myself. Yeah…just small things, you know? I just…sometimes it’s just easier to do something for someone else.
Ya know? N’tha little squirt is sofreak happy ta be out innit.
I bet he is. Dylan would be the same. Gizmo too.
S’body did a bit t’much raindance man.
M’look at you, Lucks.
I don’t miss those sudden Summerland storms.
No offense, Q, but what would be the point of admitting it if it wasn’t fine? But it is, so, you know, just don’t worry about it. I’m just happy to be home. I’m really sorry that all happened to you. And that I wasn’t there for you when it did, either. It all happened so fast, but you seem like you’re a little better, at least? I’m glad Rach was at least, though… She’s kind o amazing like that. I can definitely relate to that last part, but if things ever do get complicated? You can always talk to me. That’s what Bacon Princes are for.
Because that’s what I’d do. Tell everyone else I’m okay, even if I’m dying on the inside. I worry about you…you’re family. Even when you do suggest stupid things like the notion of Rachel and I being anything other than friends. I didn’t let you be there for me, so don’t apologise. I left as soon as I heard the news that he’d died. Rachel is…everything to me right now. It’s easier to just focus on her and buy her silly little Hanukkah presents rather than talk to my mom. I know…and I’m here for you too.
Thank you! That’s all I can ask of you, really. That’s very true; I was quite reluctant to battle when I was younger due to the fact that my unpaid job that I had while living with my fathers was to groom and watch over the Pokémon at the gym. I think that certain Pokémon want to battle but some don’t. On another note, your presents have been making me very happy. You’re so thoughtful, Quinn.
Thank you, Quinn. Well of course, my team was very different back then but I appreciate the compliment regardless. You did?! What did you think of it? Was I alright? I mean, I was a bit embarrassed to lose against the last member of the Elite Four as I didn’t even get to battle Jesse - and rest assured, I have beaten him at sparring several times (even though he’s beaten me close to an equal amount of times) so I would have defeated him, I know I would have! - but it still was fun. Battling with you would be incredible! Oh shush you; Nessa Rose adores you.
You’re lucky you even got to spend time with Pokemon when you were younger. Russell considered them unclean abominations. The only contact I ever had before the Lopez program was when I stayed with my grandparents. I get that…a lot of my old team didn’t, but nearly all of the new ones do. Oh? Have they now? I was hoping that was the case but I wasn’t sure considering you’ve been so tight-lipped about it all.
You were amazing. Hence part of the reason why I think even though you’ve not battled in a long time, I’m going to have a hard time beating you. Embarrassed? Sweetheart, barely anybody ever gets that far. This was years ago and only two people have been Champion since. One by default and one that was just crazy. You were just really unlucky…plus I think we’ve established that you found a new passion that you care for more. We’ll have to try it…maybe when we’re in Cinnabar? She hates me. Every time I scream she tries to attack me.
It’s fine. The whole thing was stupid anyway, and they’re gone, and I’m fine. I didn’t mean to… Sorry. You’re right. None of my business. I just meant… I mean, you guys deserve to be happy. And it just seemed like… But yeah, fair enough. I didn’t mean to insult you or anything. I know that Rachel feels the same way about you. That your friendship is the most important thing, I mean. Not anything… Er. Just ignore me.
Are you sure about that? And I can’t be happy, Ry. My life just got completely screwed with and I don’t know what’s up anymore. Rachel being here makes everything that much better and I just don’t need any more complications thrown my way.
