The following morning, Mia woke up with the Rattata still lying on her stomach. “Good morningÃ¢Â?Â¦” She said, looking down at it.
“Morning,” Came the voice of Lucy.
Mia turned her head left and spotted Lucy already awake. “I hope you don’t mind, but I started making breakfast for us,” the girl said.
“No, I don’t mind,” Mia said. Rattata leapt off the girl’s stomach, just as it’s trainer sat up. Pulling on her socks and shoes, the girl headed for her bag. “Huh? Are you cooking your own food?” The girl asked, noticing none of the food she had brought with her was missing.
“Yeah. I didn’t want to go through your bag,” Lucy said.
“Thanks, but I wouldn’t have minded,” Mia said, taking a seat on the other side of the fire. “I trust you.”
Lucy blushed and looked away from the pan that she was using to fry some eggs and bacon. “You really are too trustingÃ¢Â?Â¦” The girl muttered. “Anyways I hope you like fattening food for breakfast!” The girl said, as she took some bread out of a nearby box and started to assemble egg and bacon sandwiches for them.
After everyone ate, Mia recalled her Pokemon and packed up all her stuff. Lucy also packed up the few things she was carrying with her. “AnywaysÃ¢Â?Â¦” Mia began.
“Well thanks for your hospitality. I wish you luck, ok?” Lucy said, recalling her Pikachu back to its pokeball.
“Wait,” Mia began. “I know it’s none of my business, butÃ¢Â?Â¦ Do you have a place to go? Or are you just wondering around?”
Lucy looked over her shoulder and smirked. “I’m a wandererÃ¢Â?Â¦ See you later!” She said, waving goodbye to the girl.
“Wait!” Mia said, a little more impatiently than before. Running in front of Lucy, the girl grabbed the shoulder straps of her backpack. “If you’re just wondering around, why don’t you wonder around with me?” The girl asked.
Lucy giggled. “You wouldn’t want to wonder around with me,” the girl said.
“Why not?” Mia asked, shaking her head.
Lucy took a deep breath. “Listen. You’re a nice kid, but there’s something about me you don’t know. You seeÃ¢Â?Â¦”
“You should listen to her,” came a gravely voice, from behind Mia. “When she says you wouldn’t want to wander around with her, she means it.”
