This woman was beginning to strike him as a problem. Not that Quilo was prone to rash action. Nevertheless, his instincts told him it would be safer for his town if she went in a different direction. "Who's to say I don't have those things? A gym must earn its keep somehow, and I'd much rather have the building be useful. In fact," He turned back to face her, Haze drifting to hover behind his shoulder as if asked to, "why not visit? I'll be having a Challenger's Day soon. If you have sufficient skill, you're welcome to test yourself against my gym. You can decide then if you think my gym is not 'fun'." He rested his hand on his sword hilt, nodding respectfully to her. "Maybe I'll give you a tour, and you can find any Team Rocket corners I may have missed."
Haze murmured something, an odd whisper that barely seemed like a pokemon sound. Quilo turned his head to her, reading his longtime companion's intentions. She felt as uneasy as he did; the delphox would be an even match for any of his pokemon alone, and though she had some experience with those types, Haze didn't feel she could protect him alone. "If you'd like to walk with me," Quilo said, cuing a surprised sound from the froslass, "I can escort you to Viridian unmolested by any other wild pokemon. I'd just ask that you leave the local children and League-goers alone. That's heavily regulated, after all."
