One Day Ago
"Hey Mouse. Are you sure you don't want to come to? It'll be fun." Malm said as he made his final preparations in Mouse's bookstore.
"For the last time. No. Unlike you, I have actual work that needs to be done. Tomorrow is the day when people come in looking for last minute gifts." She said as she sat behind the counter, "Besides, I don't understand your stupid human celebration. It's just a single day in the year, not any different from the rest, yet you all make a huge celebration out of it."
"I guess, in a way, it is. But it is also much more then that. It's a time to forget your worries and celebrate life. Something that I think we could all us after everything that's happen." Malm attempted to explain, but it didn't seem to change her mind. Instead the mimiga looked at his shoulder with Phosphera on it.
"So are you bringing Phosphera with you?" Mouse asked.
"Yeah. I thought she would enjoy herself there." Malm said as he petted the Pichu's head.
Mouse didn't seem to approve. "Are you sure that's a bright idea? You remember what happened when we went to get our passports."
"Yeah, and I figured she'll be alright as long as we don't end up in an enclosed area. And if she does happen to feel uncomfortable, she can just hide in my backpack."
"Alright, but don't go whining to me if she ends up running off and your unable to find her. I'm not going to be there to bail you out this time."
"Don't worry. You won't have to be there to bail me out this time. Everything will be fine. Right Phos?" Malm asked the Pichu he's petting to receive a happy chu in response.
"You know Phos. The more that I think about it, the more I think the conversations Mouse and I share sound like the one's an old couple would share." Malm made note with a soft sigh. Yet, again, Phosphera was to distracted with everything around her to give him an answer.
