Lumiose City - Professor Sycamore's Laboratory - Late Morning
"Did you spend a lot of time here? If the name of his spot doesn't ring a bell, we're pretty sure there's a... fish place or something right across from it."
"Something about rolling was in the name," Lidda added.
"I'm afraid I can't help, but I meant, Miranda, that you would be a wonderful guide here. You know this city well, yes? Being able to navigate outdoor terrain and a city are typically different monsters. I believe in your capabilities."
"OH!" Miranda shouted, a smile breaking out over Looker's face. "The sushi place! I do know that street. I always wanted to compete there but Papa said I would have to get stronger to stand any kind of chance even though we could easily afford the entry fee." Compete? Entry fee? He stares owlishly at her. "The trainers that dined there were frighteningly powerful. I bet you would have loved it there Mr. Don."
Her warm expression fell and Looker's heart sank a touch. "Oh dear, but that's all the way on the north side of the city and we're by the south exit. Pretty much a straight line from here but we'd have to pass the gym and those....people. I don't know that anyone could get there without taking the long way around."
Of course it would not be that simple.
"Well... that sounds exhausting but... I suppose if it's the only way, then it's the only way." His shoulders squared. "I'm determined to go even if it takes a long time to get there. I'd be honored for you company and your help, if you'd like to come."
