== > Rose: Get changed

Rose slowly makes her way to the camp, reading jane’s reply. Quite relieved that there will be no writing it the rain. It takes her roughly 15 minutes to arrive to the tent, the rain already coming down hard after the first 10. She is absolutely soaked as she heads inside the tent, the sky shaking with each crackle of electric discharge, rumbling ferociously.

“Well.” She smiles to Jade as she slides inside the tent, grateful for the space and water proofing. “It does seems like we made the correct decision in our arrangements doesn’t it?” She opens her bag, setting aside a change of clothes and the materials she bought at the mart.

“Remind me again why you absolutely refuse to use pokeballs? I know it is a challenge but honestly now.” She had wondered if Jade was going to battle at all. Of course they were taking the contest route instead of the boys who where taking the gym route, although Rose always found them to me a little…… dull. of course they required finesse rather than power, suitible due to Harley’s silly rules but it made things complicated.

“Heeey! Welcome back!” Jade chirped as someone unzipped the tent.

When Rose entered the tent, Jade did not immediately tacklehug Rose onto the ground because of reasons, but it was still a close thing! Ruffling Rose’s feathers was one of the more interesting parts of this journey, but boundaries existed to be respected! Personal space and all that blah blah. Jade might not understand it herself, but everyone was a little bit different, that’s what made the world spin round and, um, stuff? Something along those lines!

Still, boy was she relieved to being back to two persons. Gramps had told her to always make sure she traveled in a group, maybe that was contributing to her anxiety? 

Naaaaah. She’d been alone plenty of times before!

“I guess!” Jade replied, patting to the towel that had been prepped for Rose’s hair and whatnot. To Rose’s second question, she stuck out her tongue. Geez! Rose was probably convinced she needed psychoanalysing for like, lingering paranoia or something. “I already told you!” She replied cheerfully, fingering her remaining seven pokéballs. “If the world ends, because of like a zombie apocalypse, or conquest by the Alternian Empire, the first thing that is going to go kaput is the technology to make pokéballs! Super important survival skill to learn how to get on with a limited supply.”

She nodded sagely even if that was nearly all complete bs. It sounded nice, but in truth, Jade enjoyed making life harder for herself than strictly necessary! Pretending that she was in a post-apocalyptic wasteland was neat but not really ‘preparation’ for any impending disaster. I mean pft, what were the chances of that happening, right? Hahahah.

Rose raises an eyebrow as she gets changed. Something we shall all skim over her for the sake of speed because nobody wants to hear anything about such a mundane task. “Still jade, that is a pretty big IF you are placing down. Along with your rules of release it means you have as many chances as you do pokeballs.” Quite honestly, she was not looking foreward to the day Jade was down to her last pokemon.

It would be a catastrophe. “So what is on the agenda for miss Jade Harley? Perhaps she has a plan for our journey into the next city?”

She had to admit. Personally Rose was all too busy with her writing and collecting data and talking to trolls. While the majority of her time as spend with Jade it seemed more like one of them was tagging along while the other did their own thing. This was not ok. She could easily fix this. Sure she was not as outgoing or carefree as her sister (cousin) Roxy but she could easily handle an issue such as this.

"I don’t suppose you have heard from John or Dave? The boys seem to have abandoned me in all forms of contact. I am devastated." She fixes her clothes and stands up with what little room she has, before sitting down once more in a collected and elegant manner. Let wet and Chaotic at least.



== > Rose: Arrive back

GG: rose?

GG: rose??? D:

GG: rose i cant come and go looking for you!

GG: we agreed that someone had to man the camp like proper men or whatever clever metaphor that was actually a silly dick joke you made!!!

GG: yeah!! im onto you and your freudian shenanigans!!!

GG: …

GG: rose?

GG: geez!!! this is why i always tell everyone to carry at least five computational devices at once like a sensible person!!!! why is it so hard for everyone else to do this one simple thing?!! 

GG: grrr!!!

GG: …

GG: rose not to sound like some stereotypical hysterical neurotic ADD broad or whatever

GG: but if you could hurry it up with the potions that would be really really really appreciated!!!

GG: dont know why we didnt just both go looking for the stupid clinic and i had to stay behind like some useless doofus sitting on my butt-

Rose rolls her eyes, looking at the messages she has been bombarded with since she left. She had not even been gone that long. Really, Jade could be a little clingy at times, but when handling wood and forests, Jade was a natural. Clearly the girl was an expert at handling all varities of manly activities.

Hm what? Oh right. The messages.

TT: As Dave would say, the moment for that joke has passed us by.

TT: Any repeating of it would lessen the impact of the humor.

TT: At any rate, you are staying behind because it looks like we will be experiencing the full brunt of mother natures wrath tonight.

TT: Unless perhaps you are capable of setting up tents in the wind and rain?

TT: Also, you tend to over supply us on equipment we do not need.

TT: Case and point, five computers. Really Jade?

TT: If anything that just sounds encumbersome.

TT: I am not sure how you do it.

TT: After all, with each message I am sending you are getting it five times over.

She purses her lips, ennjoying the mental image of Jade scrambling to shut up all the computers like a digital form of whack a mole. Alas with each computer she would check, another would spring up loudly and make itself known.

You could actually use the simile for later. Writing on the go is such a difficult task at times. Especially with Jade.

TT: Reguardless, I have retrieved nessesary supplies.

TT: Enough for at least the next two towns.

TT: Also pokeballs, but I doubt you will use them.

TT: It is almost as if you are allergic. Oh well.

It took Jade a moment to shut everything off: given all the noise the great outdoors was making, she had put all her various computational devices on ring and vibrate and max volume and now her ears were quite aware that she was being contacted, thank you!

She read the last four lines first like a sensible person because everyone seemed to put their most important info last and then quickly shot off smiley faced reply before heading back to the top and reading from the beginning. 

GG: :D :D :D

GG: wooh! score one for rose!!

GG: but hey hey hey im pretty sure we could handle mother nature

GG: i mean im not going to be that silly surfer wandering around the beach for the end-of-the-world tidal waves like in johns dumber movies

GG: but i think i can handle myself pretty well out there!! :D

GG: even if theres wind and rain and whatnot

Actually, given that she grew up on a safari this was not, strictly speaking, accurate. Still, Jade was fairly confident that it couldn’t be as huge a deal as everyone else was making it out to be: it was just a little water, light in the sky, and noise in the wind, right? She certainly knew what wind was, in any case! The ‘storms’ she had experienced in Hoenn so far were quite disappointing to be honest! She was expecting something with a lot more ‘oompf’ given how respectfully grandpa had talked about them!! It wasn’t like she hadn’t seen rain growing up or anything!  

Okay, maybe she was a little nervous about the storm that was brewing outside right now, but really, it wasn’t a big deal or anything!!

What else, what else, boy Rose sure typed quickly!

GG: i turn my other computers off silly! the other four are suuuuuuuper important back-ups!!!

This might have been a lie.

Okay it was a lie, but usuuuuually she kept her computers off!!! So it was more a lie that held a deeper truth or something like that.

GG: though i guess i could make a sound-based attack if i had enough of them??? something to ponder later in a strategy meeting with the team :B

GG: and you know perfectly well that inventory is important and can be miniaturized! its not like well be missing out on using stuff if we get a little extra! its called the planning fallacy rose the planning fallacy!!!

GG: pokeballs </3

GG: stay safe!! well be waiting for you like useless butts being useless!

GG: ~GG

Rose smiled as she read Harley’s enthusiastic reasponse in the face of natures cruel wrath. Why it was quite the sight to see one defy nature so boldly and with nary a smidge of hesitation.

TT: Indeed, the jungle girl shall brave the elements?

TT: Using only her surroundings, her bare hands and the carcass of a slain beast.

TT: I am envious of your survival skills.

TT: Try to have everything ready for my return won’t you?

TT: This one looks particularly bad, the sky looks ready to rend itself asunder.

Indeed it did, the clouds growing thicker than the last few days, ready to rupture into a downpour. She found it a comfort to be honest, calming even. It made for such a lovely atmosphere.

TT: At least I will have suitable writing ambiance.

TT: I shall arrive shortly

Geez, who did Rose think she was dealing with? Even in unfamiliar locations and beset by unpredictable weather-related phenomena, there was no way that Jade hadn’t been ready for her partner-in-crime’s imminent return for the past breathless forty minutes.

Pooooossibly before Rose had stepped out, even! If nothing else, Jade could happily claim efficiency as one of her greatest virtues. Especially when nervous. When nervous Jade was a bundle of energetic can-do enthusiasm. 

Not that she was especially nervous now, ahahaha!!!

GG: got everything ready and waiting!!

GG: and of course the jungle girl will handle the elements :D :D :D

GG: but rose…

GG: the carcass of a slain beast? really???

GG: skinning and preparing meat is really hard work ill have you know!! 

GG: and its not like they just sell the prettiest knives to just anybody!!

GG: grandpa made me prepare my own tools once :(

GG: sooooo boring

GG: i mean who needs flint knapping in this day and age right??? 

GG: itd be like i dunno

GG: cutting your own quill and making your own ink!! really tedious!!

GG: that said i hope to see some of your writing pronto!!!

GG: alright seeya soon <3 <3 <3

Rose slowly makes her way to the camp, reading jane’s reply. Quite relieved that there will be no writing it the rain.
