All things lost...
Rustboro City - Fairfax Corporation
Theo yawned then looked up and away from the computer screen. He leaned his chair back onto it’s hind legs. For all his searching on sites to see and things to do in Rustboro city, the results had pretty much told him, “Not much.” Aside from the Pokemon Gym, the Trainer School, and the Fairfax headquarters, Rustboro was a bit dry as far as attractions went. The city was renown for it’s historic sites-- featuring the “old style” buildings and such-- but Theo didn’t have much interest in a bunch of old builds, especially when they were all still used and renovated to today’s standards. What every search page seemed to agree on was the fact that Rustboro was more of an industrial city than anything else. A deep sigh escaped Theo before squeaky clamoring caught his attention. Sitting up, Theo stared over his shoulder, to figure out just what the commotion as all about. He found his Jigglypuff fast asleep on the bed but his Whismur was urgently tapping on the window and screeching toward him. “Huh? It’s just Nick, isn’t it?”
Theo asked. Harmony shook his body hard, then pointed out the window frantically. Confused, Theo strode toward the window saying, “What’s the big deal?”
Theo stared out the window as Harmony struggled to open it. Once opened, with Theo’s assistance, Harmony pointed to the empty windowsill, then gave Theo a concerned squeak. Eyes wide, Theo mumbled, “Oh no...”
He looked toward his feet, looked out the window, then began retracing his steps through the room. As Theo began checking under the bed, he worriedly mumbled, “Where’s the coin? Where’d it go? Now how’s he supposed to find us?”
He shoved his arm beneath the bed and felt around briefly before looking to Harmony and saying, “This isn’t good...”
Nick the Skarmory, circled above the city once more. Where had his trainer gotten off to? Usually there would be a sign of some sort by now-- that much was always certain. Theo didn’t forget about him. No. Theo would never forget about him. As many things as Theo tended to forget about on a daily basis, Nick assured himself that Theo would never forget him. That meant that something must have been wrong instead. Landing in the park where Theo once was, Nick began walking about, ignoring the stares of the people around him. Let them stare. Nick knew it was because he was so magnificent, so gleaming and gold, that people and Pokemon couldn’t help but admire him. Perhaps one of them would recognize him though-- know that he was friends with Theo-- and perhaps point him in the right direction.
In a bit of a hurry, Nick took to the skies again, then circled the city, because what if Theo had just now
left his sign to follow? Or what if something happened to him? The two pink ones couldn’t protect Theo like he could. No… Theo wouldn’t have made it this far with just those two pink… oh. Nick suddenly had a brilliant idea! He screeched out loudly as he flew above the city this time, hoping that one of the tiny pink blobs could hear him, and hopefully tell Theo! What a great idea! Nothing could possibly go wrong now! Nick landed in the park once more, let out a cry, before circling the city again. Until Theo found him, Nick was going to repeat this pattern, for a long as it took.
