It was one of those crisp clear days which would have been utterly perfect were it not for the bitter bone deep cold. Small puffs of dust billowed up around the feet of the tall lean man who came to rest just far enough from the doors of the pokemonlab that they didn't open. The soft clink of metal on metal echoed through the air as he set down the end of the tall staff he carried and leaned against it. It was a quiet day. The weather might be nice, but few were willing to go out into this biting cold unless there was real need, and thus he had the road all to himself right now. He pulled his robes a bit tighter around him, trying to ward off the bitter cold now that he was no longer moving and keeping warm that way.
The soft clinking came again and the man looked up, nearly black shaded brown eyes focusing on the Haunter Daemon who was resting atop the metal circle which tipped his staff. "Abby" Valen grinned up at his other half. "You ready?" He asked her. The Haunter's response was to poke her tongue out at him "How long's it been since we left the monastery?" She asked, her question more rhetorical than anything.
"You remember what we wanted?" The daemon asked, suddenly serious. "Yes Abigail" Valen rolled his eyes. He rarely used his daemon's full name unless he thought she was nagging "I remember what we picked to ask to look at." Seeing the Haunter open her mouth he quickly reeled off the list "Riolu. Zorua. Ralts. Abra." "Alright, alright" The haunter raised a hand "You do remember" Valen just shook his head at the daemon "I'm not a kid any more Abbs"
Shaking his head again he shifted and made his way to the door. Apparently he was slightly too tall for the sensor on the automatic door, and it took waving his staff at it to get it to open up. Valen blinked in surprise at the room which greeted him on the other side of the door. It looked like his parents living room, or the backstage room the Dancer's used to relax and hang out. To the monks sensibilities, used to the extremely simple life within the monastery, despite his order being not nearly so strict as some he'd heard about, this place seemed rather luxurious.
"Hello?" he called leaning against his staff once more, Abby floating harmlessly to his left. "Anyone about?" It was still fairly early in the morning. Perhaps they hadn't been expecting visitors this early. With a shrug Valen looked about as he waited, peering curiously at the various things decorating the place.
OOC: I know he can't actually get a Riolu, But I figured he could ask and get told they don't have any at the moment? I wasn't sure about Zorua since the gen 5's aren't in the rarity list yet. Ideally I'd also like to ask if he could be offered a shiny Ralts as one of his choices once the thread gets to that point?
