[It was funny, almost. Funny how numb one got to a certain kind of pain after feeling it for long enough. Maybe she'd be back, maybe she wouldn't. Maybe a lot of people could show up that never did. Maybe it didn't matter.]

[Lancer exhaled a cloud of smoke from the cigarette in his hand, both he and his Houndoom under a sky lit by only the barest traces of sunrise. Under his shirt, he felt the dull and distant ache of the scar from a wound that had nearly cut him in half some months before. Another day, another unfortunate death.]

[Damn, he thought, crushing his cigarette underfoot. I just have no luck with women.]

[Shrugging, he pushed off the wall he'd been leaning against and pulled a bag over his shoulder, leaving in the direction of Route 39 with the black fire-type trailing behind him. As an afterthought, the knight took his Pokegear out of his shirt pocket and typed out a short message.]


Heading for Mahogany. Anyone out in that direction?

Ryner and I are just outside Ecruteak, if you'd like to drop by...

*he could at least stop by and have a drink or something; Sion always has a supply of wine around the house, after all*
dreamsofahero: (in a good mood)

*Sion knows the feeling*

Exactly. And it's never a bad thing to have extra company for a drink or two on occasion.
dreamsofahero: (polite laughter)

Re: Video

*chuckles*

Is that a challenge...?

*Sion has quite the tolerance himself, after all; he probably has enough booze on hand to make anyone pass out drunk*
dreamsofahero: (I come in peace)

[personal profile] dreamsofahero 2015-07-02 10:57 pm (UTC)(link)
Well, it has been a while since I've had drinks with someone other than Ryner, and he always insists on having so little, I'm afraid.

*by which Sion means only having one drink for every two or three Sion does. and still gets tipsy first*
dreamsofahero: (cheerful)

[personal profile] dreamsofahero 2015-07-02 11:08 pm (UTC)(link)
I thought you might agree.

*oh, of course not! there's no reason in the world why it could go anything but swimmingly*
dreamsofahero: (pondering)

[personal profile] dreamsofahero 2015-07-05 06:47 pm (UTC)(link)
Not too far, it's...

*and insert very precise directions to his and Ryner's place that I forget exactly on which side of the city it's on ooops*

[He doesn't know much about the situation-- but Greed has been around for a long time; he can guess.]

I'm still in Olivine.

I'm not much good at comforting, but if you're in the area still, I'll buy you a stiff drink.

[Greed doesn't know what he'd do without the people he's come to depend on here. Fall into despair, maybe.]

I'm out by the beach right now.

Have Bido with me-- he's a Feraligatr. Can't miss him.

[Bido notices Lancer before Greed does, waddling up to him happily, looking more like the world's most excited dog than a gigantic crocodile.

Greed notices as soon as he realizes his oversized Pokemon is missing.]


Lancer.

How are you holding up?

[That earns a smile.

Still, it must suck, to lose someone you care about.]


I should still buy you that drink. The advantage of this place is nobody thinking anything much about you bringing a giant lizard into a bar.
ossifragant: (⊗ made in your image we are at least)

[That makes him laugh.]

Doesn't look like she's too keen on helping you out with that.

I can be anywhere you want me to, in short order. Travel doesn't bother me.

[It never has.]

Are you going without at the moment?

That's doable. I once made the flight there from Azalea in one night.

...Well, and most of the day, but.


[CARMEN THAT FLIGHT IS LIKE TWENTY STRAIGHT HOURS YOU ARE UNREAL]

I've been here and there. Someone I knew left again, and usually when that happens I end up with wanderlust.

I only went as far as Ecruteak this time, though, so getting back to Olivine won't be a problem.

When you're thinking of making for Saffron City, let me know. I'll put you up at the house.

Assuming I'm not already with you when you get there, that is.

I like it in Saffron. It's well-connected; four other cities are a day trip away, and a fifth is six hours by train.

It's hard to get bored, with possibilities like that.

Something like that.

I hear the fishing near Vermilion City is magnificent this time of year.
