    Mid morning in the capital of the Omnia Region, Tietokone City. The central square in the city was bustling as usual, with pokemon and their trainers on their daily routines. Massive skylines gazed over the most notable landmark in this area, the Pokemart and the small sandwich shop attached to it. Lush flowers added a flair of color to the ornate, gold stone mosaic decorating the square.

    Sitting outside of the sandwich shop, with her nose buried in a book was Lauren, and her Sylveon, Amber Tate. The girl quietly looking over the books pages, and scrutinizing the crowd. Several people had gathered to watch a group of Wingulls hovering over the nearby waterway. In the other direction, a few people were letting their pokemon rest in a fountain, conversing from the nearby benches. She didn't know any of them.

    Wistfully the girl wondered why she had come here. She wanted friends, and to get out and see the world, right? So why did it feel so empty?

    _____

    Amber Tate, in the span of the last few minutes, had moved from the chair opposite of her trainer, to the ground, then to the chair again. Now she was bored, and her trainer looked more miserable than usual. There was only one thing to do about that.

    The Sylveon playfully switched seats, settling down comfortably in Lauren's lap, the girl giving a sharp "Oof!" At the pokemon's weight, and almost dropping her book.

    "You're getting too big for this." Lauren muttered recovering the book, and holding it with one hand, while petting Amber with the other.

    "How can you be so miserable? Look at all the new sights, sounds, and smells!" The Sylveon wondered, relaxing just barely at her trainers touch. Her large ears swiveling like a couple of sonar devices.

    "At least you're excited." Lauren remarked anxiously, turning her focus back on her book.
     
  2. Storm Cromwell was in the front of a large crowd. A dark purple violin was positioned carefully in his hands. With a quick swish of his wrist, a beautiful song began reverberate throughout the square. One thing that Storm enjoyed doing was playing music, and it really showed in how his song was played.

    Frost was in front of Storm. She loved the music that he made and it showed in the way she began to dance. She started out slow and then slowly picked up speed with the song. The dance was practiced and looked very polished.

    Though there was a crowd around, there was not a collection dish. Storm did not need the money. Though there was a sign that stated that he would donate any money given to him, to a shelter for abandoned pokemon.
     
  3. Ron walked down the sidewalk, with a big headache and eye bags on his face. This is the result of going to an after party, after a party where his band had played. He lost his sunglasses and now he had to squint his eyes to see what was in front of him. He made his way to the sandwich shop, to get something in his stomach. As he entered the shop he noticed a Sylveon pounce on it's trainers lap. He looked down at his Quilava. "Don't get any funny ideas."

    ---------------------------------

    Furia, Ron's Quilava, had been walking with her hangovered trainer. He pretended to keep it under control, but anyone could see he was suffering in the sun. Fortunately, she never went to his parties, they weren't her type. She gave Ron an annoyed look. "I have no need for such childish displays."

    ----------------

    They both walked in the shop, smelling the wonderful sandwiches. After getting a 30 cm sub, they sat outside one table over the girl reading. Furia enjoyed the food, but not as much as Ron, who ate like he had been starving.

    Stacy had her nose in a book as she was on a boat that was taking her from her home in Cannonport City to Tietokone City. She paid no attention to the world around her, lost in the fantasy world that thos book took place in. Of course, she could only read one chapter of said book. Any more and she might not read anything else. No, she needed to read her factual books as well. Actually, she needed them more than the fantasy that she was reading.
    ***
    Barnard sat on Stacy's shoulder, cautious of the other Pokemon around him. All of them, unknown to be friends or foes. He peered at Stacy's book, knowing that it was one of the ones that she would be putting away after a short amount of time. He blinked twice as he started humming to himself.

  5. The moment of near peace for Amber ended when she spotted a strange human and a Quilava eating lunch nearby. "Oh HI!" The Sylveon called out to her fellow pokemon, before jumping from her trainer's lap.

    Lauren was used to Amber using her lap as a trampoline, but not used to what came next, as the Sylveon's movement knocked Lauren's coffee from the table and into the her own lap. She gasped, quickly leaping up from the heat, dropping her book, while setting the cup upright. "Amber Tate!"

    Amber's ears fell flat. Lauren never used her full name unless she was angry with her. "What? I didn't do anything!" The Sylveon protested turning to see the mess. "Oh."

    Lauren gave her pokemon a disgruntled look before turning to the mohawked man. "Sir? Do you have any extra napkins?" She asked politely, trying to hide her embarrassment.
     
  6. Ron was chewing on his sub when he heard a commotion on the table next to his. He noticed the girl had spilled her coffee and by her reaction it was the Sylveon's fault. He stopped chewing when they asked him for a napkin. He looked at his table, he had a few. He grabbed them and offered them to the girl. "Here ya go." He said with his mouth full.

    Furia rolled her eyes. "You clumsy Pokemon. Hot coffee pains humans you know?"

    Ron noticed his Quilava glaring at the Sylveon. "Settle down Furia, eat your food." He turned to the girl with the spilled coffee. "Need help?"
     
  7. Lauren smiled at the man as she took a couple of napkins. "If you don't mind, Thanks!" The girl looked at the stranger curiously. "Are you from around here?" She asked, as she cleaned some of the coffee off her shirt.

    "Hey! I'm not clumsy!" Amber told the Quilava, before moving to grab Lauren's book, and bringing it to her trainer, while wrapping one of her ribbons around Lauren's arm. "And, besides! That's one way to make a friend!" The Sylveon said happily, extending a ribbon towards the man.
     
  8. Ron finished chewing before he spoke. "Yeah, why? Do I owe you money? I'm pretty sure I paid all my debts, though I wouldn't be surprised if I made more." He bit his lower lip as he searched his memory.

    Furia sighed. "He doesn't owe anyone. But, he always comes home with blackouts from the night before. He probably does." She looked at the Sylveon. "Don't bother with him, manners aren't his strong point. I'm surprised he offered your trainer the napkins."

    "Nope." Ron said as he came back from his thoughts. "I don't recognize your face either, are you from around here?"
     
  9. Lauren awkwardly rubbed the back of her head. "Not really. I just got here actually." The girl said, averting her gaze to her book, taking it from her Sylveon. "So, uh...How are the sandwiches here?" She asked, attempting to change the subject, only to embarrass herself more. 'Smooth Lori, smooth...' Her cheeks began to flush as she unconsciously began to scrub at her clothes faster.

    Amber paid little mind to her trainer's distress, simply squeezing her wrist with a ribbon, to help her calm down. "Aw! He just needs a friend!" The Sylveon said, her voice chipper, as she used her free ribbon to collect some of the spilled coffee on the table. "Or maybe a coffee? Or both! Both are nice!" She remarked as she licked the coffee off of her ribbon. The act going unnoticed by her trainer.
     
  10. Storm was happy with the way his performance was going, but he decided to step it up. Sitting his violin down, he pulled out his guitar. With the rose painted guitar in hand, he began to strum an edgier song by one of his favorite bands. "Hey so I am going to do a cover of a song by my favorite punk rock bands. I will probably not do it any justice, but here it goes."

    With the Storm sitting on the edge of the fountain, he began to play a song by Ron Tower's band. Now he did take a bit of a softer approach to the song, but that is how his voice sounds when he sings. Though his voice was not the right sound that the original had, the song was still a beautiful rendition of their version.
     
  11. Ron took another bite of his sandwich. He shrugged. "They're okay." He noticed the book and pointed at it with his sandwich. "What are you rea..." He stopped as a certain song reached his ears. He placed his sandwich down on the plate. "Take care of this Furia." He stood up with and upset look in his eyes.

    Furia sighed. "There he goes again."

    Ron walked quickly to where the sound was coming from. He pushed his way through the crowd until he broke through to the center where Storm. "Yo! You mind telling me what you're doing to my song? We work hard on that, so we don't appreciate someone coming up and ripping us off!" He glared at Storm.
     
  12. Storm was stunned by the man who came up to him and yelled about him singing his song. His hands were posed to sing the next verse, and his mouth hung open a little. Though that was quickly remedied as he stood up and sat his guitar up against the fountain.

    "Ron Towers, it is on honor to meet you. I am sorry for singing your song, but I thought it was ok since I was not making any money off of it. I was not trying to rip you off at all. That was not my intention. If I offended you, that was not my objective. I know how hard it is to write music and for someone to come in and take it. I have just been a big of your music, and I wanted to sing one of your songs." Storm had a bit of sad look to him after all he was just confronted with one of his favorite band members. He did hope on meeting him one day, but he had hoped it was on better terms.
     
  13. Also on the boat was a teenage girl, her blue hair flowing in the winds. Eve sat on her shoulder, as usual, taking in the sun's rays. She appeared to be observing the clouds, pointing to them with her paw every once in a while.

    Allie noticed a girl reading a book - she vaguely recognized the title, Talia had fawned about it - and contemplated for a moment.
    Do I lay low and try not to be noticed..... or do I go socialize, like Mum always tells me to do?
    She thought for a moment, before shrugging. Ah, what's the worst that could happen?

    Allie sat down next to the girl, speaking quietly so as not to unintentionally startle her. "Hi! What are you reading?"

    Stacy glanced up as Barnard flapped his wings. She noted the girl with blue hair and took a second to register the question. "It's The Last Dragoniteborn. I'm surprised you didn't recognize it." She looked down at her book and continued reading the contents of the book. However, she placed half her attention on the girl in front of her.
    ***
    Barnard glanced at the Eevee on the stranger's shoulder. He flapped his wings to help alert his trainer. However, she was already looking up. He scooted closer to her while she talked and went back to her book. Hiding behind his trainer, he felt much more comfortable. She was his friend. She would protect him from the pair of strangers.

  15. She smiled, glad she'd been somewhat engaged in conversation. "The name rings a bell. Never read it myself, but I'm hoping to at some point. I've heard great things about it."

    Eve glanced down at the small winged Pokemon, who had retreated behind his trainer. Slightly saddened by this, she lowered her ears, sitting next to Allie. Why did no one ever want to hang out with her?

    Allie sat there somewhat awkwardly, trying to think of what to say without coming off as weird. "Uh - what's your name? Mine's Allie, and this is Eve."

    Without looking up from her book, she said, "Stacy, and the Hoothoot hiding behind me is Barnard." She placed a bookmark in her book and looked at Allie, unsure of what to say. She couldn't prepare for all of the questions, but she had prepared for some of the most common.
    ***
    Barnard gave Stacy an angry look. "What are you doing! I trusted you, Stacy. Going around, telling someone my name like that." He looked at the Eevee and shrunk back. Why was he so shy!

  17. "Tch!" Ron crossed his arms. "The money doesn't matter. You're not living up to the song. It's Punk, it's rebellious. Not some sweet voice pretty sounds crap. You gotta express it through energy, rage, a fuck the world attitude. That's Punk. What you just played almost felt like the Queen of Kalos would listen to it in her bathroom." He turned around and walked away, pushing his way through the crowd again, ignoring the angry stares.

    He went back to his table where his sandwich was waiting. He let himself fall on the chair and began to eat. "Too damn early for this."


    Furia rolled her eyes. "Yet you were the one picking a fight. That musician was doing your song a favor by not making crazy ruckus."

  18. The guy wants a loud and rebellious song then Storm will give him just that. He sat back for a moment and readied himself. With a deep breath, Storm begun to sing the same song. Instead of the way he just sung, this version was almost an exact copy of the original. Storm began walking towards the punk rocker, his voice becoming edgier and more rebellious then before.

    When he finished the last verse he stood right in front of the table with Ron and a girl who seemed to have spilled coffee on her shirt. slamming his hands down on the table, he looked the rude punk in the eyes. "Was that better, you jerk. Just because someone chooses not to ruin their voice, does not mean that they are not rebellious in their own way. Besides it is not like I was selling the song as my own. You could be thankful that their are people who enjoy your music. If this is how you treat your fan, then it is no wonder why the lead singer quit, it was probably to get away from the likes of you."

    With that Storm walked away and went back to his guitar. Packing up, he took his case with the money that he was given, and put it into a sealed envelope. Pulling out a deep purple pen, he wrote the name of the shelter it was going to and the amount that was inside. He would not let some arrogant rocker ruin his day.
     
  19. Lauren silently watched the two musicians got at it. Her expression was of a deer in the headlights. Amber had also picked up on the tension and promptly hid behind Lauren, the Sylveon's ribbon still wrapped securely around the girls arm.

    "What just happened?" The Pokemon mused to no one in particular.

    Lauren on the other hand, looked to her book before deciding to answer the man's question. "Um, I was sort of reading a romance novel." She spoke quickly, and looked away after, as if this stranger would hit her. If there was a silver lining it was that she had something new to talk about.
     
  20. "You just proved my point." Ron said as Storm walked away. He sighed and continued to chew until Lauren spoke. "Huh?" He had completely forgotten about her. He gave her a strange look as he remembered. "Oh right." He noticed she turned and he tried to see what she was looking at. "You lose something?" His mind processed the situation. "Oh, you're embarrassed because you're reading a love novel? You shouldn't be, be proud of your likes and dislikes. Damn the people who don't accept that."

    Furia finished her meal. "Really? You're terrible at reading people Ron. Even I understood." She turned to the Sylveon. "My trainer getting into arguments like that is normal, sorry to disturb your peace."

     
  21. Lauren blinked at the man's response. "Oh, yeah uh...Thank you!" She blurted out quickly before going inside the sandwich shop. Seriously? Was everyone in this region crazy?

    Amber looked at the Quilava a confused expression on her face. "I think your trainer gave mine a case of second hand embarrassment. Whatever that means." The Sylveon's expression brightened, as her trainer returned with some food and a pokepuff. "Oh sweet sugar! Take me away!" The Sylveon cried before leaping back into the girls lap as she sat down.

    "Amber! Seriously!" Lauren protested, before quickly grabbing the pokepuff, and setting some more healthy food in its place. "Here, eat some lunch first okay?"

    "Do I have to?" The Sylveon sighed before resigning herself to lunch.

    Lauren pulled out a pamphlet with the Omnia League's logo on it. The Omnia Leagues logo looked like a pokeball, but with three lines in a triangle shape, representing the rough layout of the region as a whole. Placing the pamphlet on the table, the girl ate while looking at it the way one looks at a big pile of laundry.
     
  22. Ron sighed as he finished his meal. He noticed what the girl was reading. "Good luck with the league." He said as he stretched. "See ya around." He placed a tooth pick in his mouth and walked away.


    Furia looked at the Sylveon. "Goodbye." She followed quickly after Ron.

    The two made their way down the street, walking slowly. Ron had nothing to do until the sun set, when the night life began in the city. Meanwhile he would probably go home to practice. Maybe, even get in a battle or two, so Furia can stay in shape.
