Genni woke up, and it was raining. Hard. Sitting up slowly, she eased Pichu off her face, and Dratini off her chest. Ivysaur was nestled against her side, and Slowpoke had somehow gotten into the bed during the night and was pinning her legs down.
"Good god you guys are heavy..." Genni murmured, wiggling free of her clingy pokemon and crawling out of the bed. She wandered into the kitchen and started up her usual pot of coffee,and peered off onto the porch, staring at the rain as it came down in buckets.
"I guess they're gonna cancel the contest today..." Genni murmured, actually pleased she wouldn't have to feel Jude's eyes on her while she showed off her pokemon. Slowpoke slowly slid out into the rain and let it wash down on his soft pink body. Pichu munched happily on the food Genni had gotten out of the fridge for him, and Ivysaur sat on the floor eating out of his food dish.
Meg appeared from her bedroom, looking groggy, her hair sticking up in all directions, and she immediately went to the stove.
"Should you be cooking while you're half asleep?" Genni asked. Meg made a face and got out the bacon, gently pulling the slices apart and putting them on the pan.
"How do you want your eggs?" She asked instead. Genni considered this.
"Hmm...scrambled," She murmured. Meg looked surprised.
"You're actually gonna eat?!" Meg cried. Genni shrugged.
"I'm not feeling too hot...maybe something in my stomach will settle it," She decided. Meg smiled, pleased she was having breakfast, and set to work while Genni turned on the television.
"-Anyone who was interested in entering the contest today, it will be postponed until next week due to the Hurricane coming into the hurricane these next few days," The reporter was saying. Genni blinked.
"That explains the weather..." She murmured. Meg nodded, leaning against Genni's back and staring the screen. The phone rang while the reporter continued to talk, and Genni went to answer it.
"-The pokemon center and hospital will be open for anyone who needs somewhere to escape the hurricanes. People are asked to lock and board their windows up. This is going to be a very mean Hurricane Ivan, folks-" Meg looked up when Genni hung up.
"Who was that?" Meg asked. Genni smiled.
"It was the pokemon center. They said I'm hired!" Genni said with a smile. Meg cheered and hugged her friend.
"Yay! That means I get free health benefits for my pokemon right?" Meg asked. Genni giggled.
"Maybe. If you're nice to me. But they want me to come down and help out with some of the boarding of the windows and herding in pokemon. They're afraid they're going to get hurt. They seem disorientated or something," Genni said. Meg nodded as she followed her friend to her room. Genni dressed, putting on a raincoat and jeans and sneakers.
"Can I come?"
"I don't see why not..." Genni said. Meg ran to get dressed herself. They gathered up their pokemon, and headed out the door.
