Andrew groaned as the natural light hit his face. Maybe sleeping by the window hadn’t been the wisest of ideas. He rubbed his eyes and lifted his head. He could tell it was still early but it was beginning to get a bit noisier. Some of the trainers quietly packed up their things, making a conscious effort not to wake those around them.
Andrew was approached by a Chansey who had noticed him waking up. The nurse Pokémon handed him a tray with six Poké Balls on it.
"Thanks Chansey." Andrew tried to speak but his voice was hoarse. He placed the Poké Balls into his backpack and stretched his arms out. It seemed pointless to sleep again, especially now that Chansey had spotted that he was awake. Besides, he had big plans for today.
He packed his stuff and changed into clean clothes. He tried to plan what changes he’d make to his party as he brushed his teeth. Alena immediately came to mind and along with his Charmander, Sanga. He’d spent so much time training Dario and Yael recently. It seemed fair to leave them behind this time. Besides, the rest of his team were more suited to Bugsy’s Gym if he needed some backup. After making his way over to the PC, Andrew made the switches to his team. He silently waved to the nurse and the Chansey as he exited the building. Although some time had passed and most people had gotten up, he did his best not to disturb those who remained.
It seemed like a good idea to challenge Bugsy while his Pokémon were feeling fresh. He just hoped that the Gym would be open at this time. Not wanting to loiter around the entrance of the Pokémon Center, Andrew strolled into the town. After arriving to a more open area, Andrew decided to call on Sanga.
"Sanga, come out here." A small Charmander appeared in front of him. He looked much healthier than the last time his trainer had seen him. Andrew knelt down to the fire-type’s level and hugged him. "I’m glad you’re okay."
He could hear some distant voices. They seemed to be talking about the gym which put pressure on Andrew to get there before them.
"Come on, we’re going to challenge the Gym here. You’re still recovering so you won’t have to battle. It’ll be fun to watch." Andrew picked up Sanga and placed him on his shoulder. They’d move faster if he carried him.
The town wasn’t very big so finding the Gym was easy. They soon arrived at the bug-themed building. Andrew pushed the one of the front doors open and ventured inside.
"Is there anyone here?" he called out. "My name is Andrew and I’m here to challenge you." Looking around, it seemed like he'd successfully made it here before anyone else. Now he just had to find the Gym Leader.
