Following the relief efforts of the war, helping the cities get back on their feet and returning home to rest, Balder had received a latter from a Pelipper, waiting at Stormy's house. A letter inviting him to come to Evergrande, a meeting with the Commissioner herself: Dahlia Goode. "Guess it's time to settle this huh." were the only words he could say when he finished reading everything.[break][break]

After finding the best outfit he could get for this situation, the man summoned his Alakazam and teleported right in front of the League's headquarters. It was only the third time he had come to this location, the first to provide information on the invaders and the second time to stop one of said invasive creatures from destroying the location.[break][break]

Calling his Alakazam back into his pokeball, the Alolan man walked into the place, hands in his pockets as his coat wavered behind him. Reaching the counter, the man displayed his business smile to the receptionist. "Good Afternoon young lady, I have received an invitation from Ms. Goode and was told to come at my earliest convenience. Would you be so kind as to inform her of my arrival and direct me to the proper room?" He might be crude at times, punch others randomly, but he still knew proper etiquette.

 dahlia has a habit of hovering around nervously before meetings, appointments. little desk work can be done once the clock hits ten minutes prior. perhaps, it is a good thing, she assures herself. a good thing to allow her to transition from one bullet point to the next. to arrive with full breath and full attention.

then again, today's meeting is not scheduled. rather, it's quite impromptu. "at your earliest convenience," she had wrote.

still, she's quick to be notified when the man arrives.

hearing balder's voice, she bursts through some doors, their glass frames shaking as she greets balder with a brandished hand.

"no need for that. i'm here!" she's dressed in her usual attire. whites, black heels, a practiced smile. "just through here." the commissioner holds the door open for him, which leads into a corridor connected to several office rooms. "would you like anything?"

Dahlia's entrance, by opening the glass doors and stating her presence with a loud voice, startled the alolan man that had come to meet her. It was almost as if she had been expecting his arrival today. A sort of sixth sense for this kind of meeting? Still, Balder recovered his composure and proceeded to follow the businesswoman.[break][break]

The man nodded and said a small "Thank you" at the lady for holding the door, and proceeded to go through the office corridors forming the headquarters of the League alongside Dahlia. She then proceeded to ask if he wanted to have anything. "Hmm.... What about a glass of Rhum in that case?"[break][break]

The man chuckled. "Don't worry, I jest. I'll simply take some water once we reach the location for our meeting. Although if we are going to spend a while discussing, maybe we'll need to order some food too."

 the joke does not land. at least, to dahlia. she stands, stunned briefly, as if trying to construe some polite way of saying that it would be uncouth— but the chuckling and admission that pours afterward is enough to loosen her shoulders.

"i don't believe it'll take too long." dahlia says. "i don't want to keep you for long, that is. you must be busy."

she leads him into a wider office space by the end of the hall. it opens up into a large room that faces evergrande city. with wide glass walls on one end of the room. two leather seats flank a small coffee table; there, already, coffee and iced lemon water sit in metal and clear urns for self-service. glass cups wait beside them.

"take a seat." dahlia says, gesturing to one of the leathers. she takes her seat, smoothing her pencil skirt under herself as she descends.

a thin finger reaches over to dispense icy water into balder's clear cup.

From the corner of his eyes, the man noticed the effect of his words on the lady as she stayed stunned briefly in the hallway. She had taken this more seriously then the Alolan man expected. Was she not aware of the fact he usually consumes alcohol, more then the norm at least? Not event after that Halloween party a year ago, where he had consumed the content of a whole barrel in her presence (I think she was there at that time)?[break][break]

Still, Balder disregarded her reaction and listened to her words as she caught up. The man chuckled again at her mention of being busy. "If anything, being jobless actually gives me more free time then I can use. So we can take as long as we need." His only job, if that could be called one, was making sure that Stormy was eating properly and resting properly.[break][break]

Reaching the end of the hallway, they entered a wide office with a view on the city. The man approached the windows briefly, observing the location from afar before being invited to take a seat. The Alolan man nodded as he proceeded to sit on the leather chair she was gesturing towards. Once he was seated, he took the glass of water in his hand and proceeded to take a sip.[break][break]

After tasting the lemon water, the man placed the glass on the table and looked at the commissioner. "Thanks for filling the glass. Now... Shall we go right in the subject? Might I know why I've been summoned? Because I doubt it's related to the previous meeting where I barged in somewhat uninvited." The conference before the war. He had showed up with information on the Megalopolans, by the request of Orion. But it wouldn't be on that subject right?

 dahlia takes her glass. painted nails grace its sides as she lifts it to her lips. when she drinks, the water pours a little more than expected causing her to jolt for a napkin after.

"sorry!" she laughs, setting the glass down. "well, the situation was dire. a little bit of drama is to be expected." dahlia says in reference to balder's past interruption.

she crosses her legs, her shoe bobbing to some imagined rhythm.

"i just have some questions." dahlia folds her napkin neatly into a small square. "you weren't on good terms with the league last time i checked. how about now?"

Why was she apologizing for that event? It's not like she had planned him coming over since it was a last minute invitation from Orion. Unless... She had expected it? Or even asked the council member about inviting him? If she had really planned his intervention... then Dahlia was a lot more dangerous then he thought.[break][break]

Then, the core of the meeting was brought: his view on league. With everything that Olivia had done during the New Year raid and some events prior to this, adding to the actions that league had done following that... It's hard to view them as a positive force in Hoenn. Their incompetence showed multiple times, even during the war. Hell, two targets for capture had been snatched under their nose and no one batted an eye at it.[break][break]

"I'll be honest here Dahlia." No more business speech. He had to say it as he thought it. "The fact that Olivia is not part of the council anymore, unsupported by the League, does help me view the League in a better light. Her actions had been incredibly dubious during the New year, throwing bombs at people and selecting flawed paths during the carnage, and I can't even imagine what she did in the council room prior and after these events. Wouldn't even be surprised if she had used my departure to further her own agenda and pin more blame on my back."[break][break]

After all, everyone knew that Balder could be slightly volatile after that night. It's easy to use that to push something forward on the pretense that "this man is dangerous". But if anything, Orion and Fernando had seen how he was after all of this, surely they would be able to vouch for his attitude and how he was.[break][break]

"However, that doesn't mean the League is free from any doubt I got on them. I heard of the events of Littleroot, with the tree. Plus the events of this war. Hell, there was even a fucking kid on the battlefield. A child! How the fuck am I supposed to think the League is the right organization for the job if they allow just any kids to fight in a war?!"[break][break]

In the end, the kid named was alive and he had fought well, but there was still issues to be had here. "That's not to add the disappearance of Jules and Velmos. The former got snatched in front of me, where I couldn't do shit due to the smoke and how silent the kidnapping was. I'm willing to bet that this was the work of Rocket, that they're not as dead as it's announced."[break][break]

"So, yeah I do think League is a bit better then before. But there's a shitton of work to do to make it as good as it should be. And a criminal organization to destroy once and for all to avoid further issues too." As he mentioned Rocket, the man's fists were tightened. He wanted them gone, to never return, and be able to ascertain the fate of his family.
