“The police just threatened you to put your weapon down and you retorted by saying that you’ll take something extremely valuable, and then you grabbed me wTF DID YOU JUST WINK AT ME.”
“Y'know, I wouldn’t be so mad about this whole ‘I was secretly a criminal the whole time thing’ if you hadn’t just killed our professor, I mean c'mon dude I know he was a douche to me but that’s no excuse to just MuRDer SOMEONE.”
“Okay, I’m sorry, but I CLEARLY got here first.”
“You got thrown into prison because you were covering for a relative/your friend and it’s so obvious you don’t fit in here and it’s actually pathetic, so how about I (someone who’s been in here for ages) show you the ropes?”
“Pfft, you’re the newbie and you look like such a wuss it’s unreal, I bet you couldn’t handle a single punc — WOAH I WAS NOT EXPECTING YOU TO PUNCH THAT HARD… okay, but you’ve GOT to teach me how to do that and I might be oddly attracted to you?? whaaaat???”
“I caught you in the middle of robbing this store and I’m so reporting this, and NO i will not be bribed; OMG WHAT THEY HAVE THIS I’VE BEEN LOOKING FOR THIS FOR AGES… okay, maybe I will. “
“okay, I know I’m a security guard and I’m not meant to talk to any of the prisoners but seriously you are just so chatty and lovable it’s kind of hard not to talk to you, how did you even get in here???”
“I’m only talking to you, the security guard, because I have a plan to get out of here but I think i kinda like you a bit more (ok a lot more) than the other guards, holy shit I might not leave because of you.”
BONUS: “What do you mean you want me to come with you??”
“Hey, you know all the expensive things you’ve been getting me the past few months? How did you even manage to afford that? … omfg please tell me you’re joking — YOU’RE NOT JOKING WHAT THE HELL.”
“you take the term ‘partner in crime’ to a whole new level.”
[🌟] - "Ahh shucks! Guess I missed the boat on this one.“
Barry stamped his foot, both in frustration and to beat life back into his cold feet. Ever since he heard of his friend taking the Champion title, Barry burst in joy and thought to visit and congratulate them. Also to give a jaunty warning that it might get taken away very soon if they weren’t careful. Maybe a few ‘good luck’ punc- I mean hugs to go with it.
But his gut told him that could wait. For now, he had to find her.
"Why don’t you stay in one place, Arceus Cynthiaaa,” he yelled into the snowy sky before ending abruptly with a cough. “Ack- *cough*, alright I got it, geez! Celestic Town you are great but this Soon-To-Be Champion’s gotta go!"
In order to combat the cold, Barry took a running start straight out of town. Sure he could ask Star to fly him back but there was no challenge in that! Though running on a snowy field is one of his many, thoughtless mistakes because, before he knew it, his foot slid on a patch of hidden ice.
"Wha!-GAH! S-s-stop-HMPF!” His head was saved from the hard ice floor by crashing into the softest, fluffiest coat he ever felt. He grabbed on, desperately trying to gain his balance and making a fool out of himself in the process.
“Hey! Thanks! You really sa-AAV!” His eyes bugged out when the very person he crashed into was the one he has been trying to find for days! “CYNTHIA, HERE YOU ARE! I MUSTASKYOUAFAVOR!”
Without waiting for the other to respond, he regained balance in record time and stood up straight, loud and proud, into his battle stance. Eyes shined bright and he had the biggest grin on. “The name’s Barry, friend of the new champion but they won’t be champion for long because I’m-!” He stuck his thumb to his chest. “-going to earn the title! So please, Battle Me!”
