“I don’t have time to play tour guide.”
The tall trees loomed over her head as she pushed her way through thick bushes, determined to find her way out. Flannery had been lead to believe that there was a ‘secret shortcut’ to Blackthorn City around this area by a passing trainer and it didn’t occur to her until now about how shady it actually was. Sighing in frustration, she pushed ahead, silently cursing her attraction towards to the unknown.
Finally finding some sort of open space, she steps out of the forest, taking a long deep breath of relief as she glanced around. Patches of grass lay flat on the ground, and the path was clear of bushes and stray branches from nearby trees, indicating that this was indeed used as a small path - one that seemed to be less traveled by.
A few moments later, a blue-haired trainer appeared down the trail, walking towards her with such an intense stare, Flannery couldn’t help but feel a little intimidated and stepped aside. She opened her mouth to say something as the woman walked closer but was quickly interrupted. “I don’t have time to play tour guide.”
“You have a Pokemon stuck in your hair.” Flannery murmured, as the peculiar stranger marched away with a silent Wurmple dangling at the edge of her ponytail.
