"Ah, yes." said Teal, still pretending to be a rich merchant. "I was hoping our mutual associate had gotten the message to you. You look familiar. Were you by any chance with the caravan that went with my Aunt to Lavender a year ago?" His father's brother's wife had went on a pilgrimage to an all-female monastery outside of Lavender almost four seasons ago, and had taken only female guards and Pokemon with her to avoid offending the Nuns and Priestesses that were there. He knew he had seen her guarding somewhere. Maybe his sister Scarlett's 13th birthday party, where she also requested all female guards?
A new man arrived at the table, and he nodded to the man. "Good, the pokemon expert has arrived." By the fact that he seemed to prefer talking to pokemon, it was obvious that he spent a lot of time around them. "Would either of you, or your pokemon, like something to eat or drink?" Peach stood up, waited for their orders, then took the two now empty tea glasses to the bar to be refilled. The Prince always drank hot Pecha tea when thinking, and she could tell that a strategy session, though encoded, was about to happen. Upon returning she offered the others Pecha berries as well, should they want some, and prepared hers and her master's drinks the same way she had upon his arrival.
"Good, now that things are ready we can speak business." He spoke in a normal voice, one that was hard to hear from more than a few feet away in a busy lunchtime tavern, but didn't whisper, as hushed conversations drew curious ears. "This Invasion has opened up key business opportunities. The way I see it, we have two opportunities. An army travels on its stomach, so if we were to control the supply lines bringing them food, we could profit greatly. We should also try and acquire some of these Apriballs I've heard of their troops using. Understanding how they work could open up new markets. If nothing else, people could turn dangerous foes into harmless pets. Though, I'm not sure how the pokemon feel about this. That's why I asked you to come." he nodded to "expert". "Also, if you feel we need more capital to put our plan into action, I know some noble investors..." he put three fingers out, hoping they'd realize who he was talking about, on the table, then closed his fist. "Who I believe would like to aid us in this business venture."@Harmony3812@Regitnui
