A while passed, and Rin grew thirsty. A little bit away there was a drinking fountain, and Rin got up to go get a drink of the cool water. She set Hino down and went off to the drinking fountain. She didn't realize Crim was coming with her.
As Rin casually walked to the fountain, she heard something knock over behind her. She turned around and saw that Crim had knocked into a person carrying food. This person was a boy about her age, with messy brown hair and a striped jacket. Soda was spilled over his front, and the food he carried on a plastic tray was either tipped over or on the floor. He looked really angry, and Rin ran over to apologize for what her Pokemon did.
"S-sorry..." Rin began, before she was cut off.
"That was your Druddigon?" he asked. Rin nodded. "Well then... KEEP TRACK OF YOUR STUPID POKEMON! I PAYED GOOD MONEY FOR THIS FOOD AND YOUR CLUMSY DRUDDIGON BASHES INTO ME! TRAIN 'EM A BIT BETTER, WILL YA'?" he yelled. The Pokemon Center grew much quieter, and all around heads turned to face the angry boy, who was too angry to notice. Rin, startled, took a couple steps back.
"I'm s-sorry," she repeated quietly, "Is there anything I c-can do to make it up?"
"HOW ABOUT GETTING THE HELL OUTTA HERE?!"
A hand rested on the boy's shoulder. Behind him was a pretty girl a bit older than him, with light brown hair and brown eyes. She was dressed up in fancy clothing and wore makeup. "Toru, calm down! You're embarrassing me!" she said. She grumbled something under her breath, but silenced the second she saw Crim. "Hey! What'd'ya think you're doing with MY Druddigon?!" she asked, her arms crossed at her chest.
"This isn't your Druddigon. If you owned him, the Pokeball wouldn't work," Rin said, her voice a mere whisper. Crim growled angrily at the girl, as if her didn't like nor trust her.
"Stupid girl... I was the one who previously owned that monster you have there," the girl replied rudely. "If you must know, I'm Janet." Janet rolled her eyes as if Rin should of known her name. "Toru, let's leave this trainer along, shall we?" she asked, her voice going from that of a snotty girl to a kind young lady without warning.
Rin clenched her fists out of her trestment by Janet, though said nothing. If Crim's original trainer was such a jerk, Rin was glad she was able to obtain one of her previously owned Pokemon.
Toru shook his head. "I'm not leaving 'till I get my revenge!" he said, pushing Janet away.
"Fine. How should we settle this then?" Janet asked, tapping a finger to her chin in thought. She suddenly stopped and grinned smugly. "How about... a battle?"
