-On the videophone-
— Well... — sound of paper sheets being turned around — there are permits and maps showing some road construction and specific tourism industry shippings past Cianwood... aaand
there's also a couple of archaeologist reports about edifications found past the mountains
-Maekrite sits at my side, ears up-
— So...? It can be done.
— Well... none of the reports so far indicate Tropius sightings.
-Another faces appear-
— There is a lot of activity going on there and we'd really not wanna interrupt...
— And the weather! The humidity!
— Come on, guys... — *sweatdrop* — don't you want to, like, actually
research wildlife? And this is your best opportunity to get experience before we go spend the winter season at the Viridian Nidoran Colony
-Cross looks around
— Well, it's not exactly "wild" life...
(from his place, sneering) — <Cowards...>
— I mean, boss... uh... there are still so many things left to do...
— We still have to help you study the childcare patterns of the Hoothoot
— ...and we're still modeling the travelling patterns of the Zigzagoon
— The Hoenn Agriculture Institute is insistently asking for the best strategy to get rid of Surskit
-Thinking to myself-
"Good thing, the more for Tagg, that thanks to Algira's... um... craziness, we have better information of their courting and breeding patterns now...
— And there's the three months of papers to fill
if you want to retain ownership of that Root Fossil
— ...Not to mention we still haven't organized the documents on Minccino
habitats, let alone the documentation you asked for about their relationship
with the Trubbish line...
— And all that before
you leave to Johto again to pursuit the trail of the Latii
— ... Right... — *sigh*
— But surely you guys can, like, prioritize
, right? I mean, not all these things are equally urgent.
-Cross looks from the other side of the screen-
— Guys! We're talking about a première opportunity here! Not to mention making Da Boss a favor
What about this? One month of extra internship at the colony
, split payment, for the one who volunteers!
-More worried cross looks-
— ...Guys You are not going to abandon me in this one, right? I gave you the best posts at [REDACTED] University!
— <I don't see their problem, sincerely. I mean we are cute! I'm sure the Viridian colony is a pretty awesome place to be, too...>
-Cross looks and suddenly a sort of smile-
— Well, Intern Firuz can go... he still hasn't even begun with the PEFE Chatroom logs anyway...
-An offscreen scream-
— What??? Guys!! But... my birthday!
— Cool! You've just Got Volunteered
, Firuz! Saddle up, and you'll be spending a nice birthday at the Nidoran colony next year!
— <Yeah, we have nifty celebrations like that...>
— Thanks guys
— It's all settled then. Firuz? I want you at Cianwood in four days tops, with a complete report on legalized foreign introduction programs and tabs on all natural migration routes before human intervention of the area.
— But... the... ah... well at least it's free...
— Thanks for everything guys! Over and out!
-Giggles from the other side as I turn off the videophone-
— <It will be fun like that. It's always nice to have visitors around...>
— Yeah... Now, to give Tangent and Basket the good news. Plus I want Algira and Xatu to train a bit, so you are going to help me look for an opponent...
(dropping ears) — <We could just go look for wild Pokémon...>
— Nah... I'm looking for a more challenging intelligence...
(jumping) — <Hey! What about Luke
— A bit out of our league... no offense...
-Maekrite and I go out-
