...devoir as her. Do you want to trade it?'
'Off course I won't!' I replied immediately. Gardevoir wasn't just my Pokémon; she was also my best friend. Our bond was unbreakable. No way that I would even think about replacing her. Since the moment I got her, we can even communicate by thoughts. Why would I do something as horrible to her as trading her?
'Trade me' Gardevoir's voice said in my mind. 'When you got his Pokémon, I'll teleport back to you.'
'No, I can't do that. That would be stealing. No, you are the only Pokémon I want.' I saw that she was blushing. At least, I thought I saw her blushing, but she turned away her head before I could see it clearly.
It started raining, so Gardevoir and I ran to the nearest Pokémon Centre. Gardevoir insisted on teleporting, but she lost too much strength in the last battle. She thought she could handle it, but I had to stop her from exhausting herself any more.
We were soaking wet when we arrived at the Pokémon Centre in the centre of the city. Panting we walked in, leaving a track of rain. We headed to Nurse Joy, who was checking something on her computer.
'I'm sorry to bother you' I said. 'But can we borrow some towels?'
The pink-haired lady looked at me and my Gardevoir, who stood next to me. She told us to wait where we were, and she disappeared to get some towels. It took not much more than a minute, but every second I waited, I realised that the bond between Gardevoir and me was faint.
