[Narrator Voice] As Trip and Lucas continue their journey through the Unova region, they stop to take a est in a conveniently empty cabin in the woods and .

While Lucas continued to sleep like the dead, Trip decided to try using the gas stove to cook breakfast. Given that he only had about two meals in his repertoire of culinary skills (omelette and mac 'n cheese...) and only one of them was really appropriate breakfast food (and he didn't randomly carry a bag of elbow macaroni, okay, and cheese would go bad in a backpack&mdas; it wasn't as easily acquired like eggs and ketchup packets were).

He might've had to dry cook it, given the lack of cooking oil, but it was puffy and yellow all the same and the warm, eggy scent should waft throughout the wooden cabin.

Frillish floated nearby in case it needed to douse a fire, not that he'd admit to that.]

[Perhaps unsurprisingly, Treecko was the one to wake up before the boy ever noticed that scent wafting his way. The little gecko rouses with his snout twitching at the promise of food, giving a stretch before looking around to try and spot just where that yummy smell was coming from.

...shortly after Treecko had hopped off the bed in pursuit of food, Lucas began to wake up himself. There was something oddly... familiar about the smell - so much so that it had cut through whatever dream he might have been having before and pulled him back to the waking world.]


[Welp, the little Pokemon was off again, but the cabin was a cosy one and nothing was too far apart. Pushing himself up from his bed and yawning widely, Lucas scoots into the dining area to the smell and sight of a fluffy, yellow omelette being dished up by Trip. The sight of such a thing was enough to wake him up near instantly and he proceeds to stare at it for a good long while before he speaks up. It was almost comical, as if he'd never seen such a thing before, and yet in all honesty he knew this item of food best of all.]

Trip! You made this?

[Don't sound so surprised, Lucas.]

[Lucas is a little taken aback by the sudden blunt retort, but he can't help but notice that Trip was... blushing a little. Was he embarrassed about it? As Treecko finds his way over to the nearby table, Lucas shakes his head.]

I-I didn't mean anything bad by it! I love omelettes! I'm sure yours are great!

[He can't quite bring himself to say 'the best', that title is reserved for someone else. But he's sure Trip's capable of feeding himself just fine, being a seasoned trainer and all!]

[Trip please. There is nothing wrong with a good old-fashioned hearty home-made omelette!

Though Lucas, with no disrespect to Trip, does take his words to heart. There was only one person he knew that made the best omelettes and well... she was no longer present.

Something which unfortunately seems to sour the boy's mood somewhat, despite tucking into his own food with gusto to begin with. Lucas' pause might give the indication that he's not enjoying it, but that's really not it at all! And it's only when Treecko pipes up that he realises he might be acting a little off.]

Oh! A-ah, did you bring any food that Treecko could have? I think he might be hungry.

[He asks, rather hesitantly, and clearly with no intent to try and mask what Treecko was actually concerned about, nope.]

mission accomplished! 8D;;

[Oh good, now the bowl was a definite distraction. Poor Lucas really didn't want to cause Trip any more grief on this journey whether it was personal or not.

Anticipating some good food, Treecko heads over to Trip as he retrieves the bowl, but noting the dust and cobwebs all over it, he can't help but screw his nose up at the sight and give off his own sound of disgust: "Reeee...."]

Huh... I guess this place really hasn't been lived in for a long time. I wonder who was here last?

[They must have had their own Pokemon, right? Maybe they were on their own journey too!]

Isn't there something sad about an abandoned house? Even if it's just a cabin... I'm glad we can brighten it up a bit.

[Oops, there's that sad thinking again, sorry Trip!]

[Trip please, if he knew you'd hurt yourself he would have been right on that, never mind his weirdness!

But as it was, he was rather more concerned about Trip's question and the fact he was sitting right there, with that steely look in his eyes. Treecko offers gratitude for the food and starts eating, but as soon as Trip starts interrogating his trainer, he can't help but slow up and look his way too...

There's an incredibly awkward pause and Lucas obviously doesn't look happy, frowning and frozen on the spot. His eyes moisten almost as if he's fighting back tears. But he shakes his head and forces a smile all the same.]

There's... there's nothing wrong. Nothing! I'm fine. Thanks for the good food. Treecko says thanks too!

[See? Let him just finish off his breakfast and forget whatever weirdness he was picking up on right now.]

Trip <3

Ah... okay.

[Well... now Lucas feels kind of bad for putting Trip out like that. He'll allow a bit of space between them though as he finishes eating alongside Treecko, before heading out to find the other boy again. Maybe he can learn some more tips watching Trip train his own Pokemon?

Still, whatever Trip was doing and however long Lucas watches from the sidelines, he still can't quite shake that awkward feeling of a lingering dark atmosphere over the situation. Treecko can sense his trainer's gloom too, and starts to tug at Lucas' wrist rather urgently before pointing at Trip. Go and say something! It seemed kind of rude to just barge in and interrupt, but Lucas knew that Treecko was right. He couldn't just carry on as if nothing had happened. So when he finds a suitable pause he decides to get up and approach.]

Um... Trip? I'm... I'm sorry for being weird earlier. It's just, someone I used to know made really good homemade omelettes, for my whole family. It was my favourite food in the whole world! [See? He's smiling. It's not totally depressing.] It... it brought back memories, that's all...

wahh, it's okay Trip!! ;;

[He gives a firm nod to confirm, not quite able to meet Trip's gaze yet, and he seemingly can't quite find the strength to say it out loud. He was getting better at talking about it, but it was still a sore point. The tears still pricked at his eyes and he still stood there with his fists clenched, fighting them back. Deep breaths, Lucas. You don't want to worry Treecko, Trip or even his own Pokemon, do you?

Though he's very aware of stray tears running down his cheeks, he forces himself to look up.]

I-it's not your fault, Trip. D-don't feel bad!
