Xerione forced herself to sit down. Her heart was pounding out of her chest. “I was hoping I would get to see you.” The man exclaimed. “I am Lynsandre, head of Lynsandre Labs. You have a holo caster, I see. Those were developed by me.” “C-cool!” Xerione stuttered. “Kid, ‘yer sounding like Kira.” Kai whispered.

“Now, I must ask you a question. Do you think the world we live in today is beautiful?” He asked. “I think so. The lifestyle that pokemon and humans live is a nice one. Since the rise of Team Plasma, all 6 regions have been pretty peaceful… right?” Xerione replied. “Yes, that is true.” Lynsandre responded. “I desire a world even more beautiful then our current one.” He looked closer at Xerione. “You’re eyes are black.” He noted. “As pale as the Ledgendary pokemon’s.” “what do you mean by that?” Xerione asked. “N…Nevermind.” He changed the subject. “I truly must be off, sorry for my abrupt proclamation. It was nice to meet you… Xerione.” The man walked out the door. It closed with a silent, swinging motion.

Xerione sighed with relief. “Thank Arceus it’s over.” “What was that, Baka?! You were flipping out!” Flannere cried. “N-nothing. I just felt a strange sensation.” Xerione responded. “Excuses, excuses. Now, let’s go shopping!” Flannere exclaimed happily.

(Several girly moments and Kai semi face-palms later, Flannere has a ribbon tied in her tail, Kira has a tiny cape, and Kai has a stomach full of Pokepuffs.)

Xerione’s holo caster began to ring. She pressed the answer button. A small, holographic figure of Yvonne appeared. “Heya! Since it’s still Christmas, your Antie Yvonne is inviting you to tea at Café Soiel! Be there!” Xerione decided it would be good for her to go. Maybe it would take her mind off of it.
