"i'm with you, okay? always" for gladion
-It was sudden when Lillie asked Gladion to come visit them in Kanto.
-He almost wanted to refuse, he didn’t have the heart to see their mother
-But the way she said it, he knew it was important to her
-Everything was fine from a first look
-Lusamine was making a very slow recovery, but it was still recovery.
-And Lillie already had one gym badge and her pokemon looked very close to her
-But, like always, there was more to it.
-The first couple of nights went by okay, morning came without any issue
-It was a couple nights in to his visit that Lillie asked to talk to him
-It was just casual conversation at first, how’s Hau, how’s Sun/Moon, how is everything at Aether, etc.
-Then she finally admitted to him that sometimes she wished she could leave. She knew her mother was getting better but she was very afraid she’d only become like she was before later on.
-She continued to ramble on, looking more and more upset and frustrated with each word.
-Gladion, for the first time in a couple years, hugged his sister.
-“I’m with you, okay? Always. You can always ask me to visit whenever it gets too much on your own, Lillie.”
-She started to cry after he said that and thanked him a thousand times over
-They both knew they had to stick together, even if they were living far apart right now.
-After all, if there was still a little hope for their family, they wanted to keep that hope.
