the top of silph tower has been fully converted to his office. mission control, if you will. it's a discernible place that both thalia parish and persephone amavi will recognize from their debrief so many weeks ago. the layout has changed since the rocket invasion but fernando does well to take care of things. this is his domain and no one dares trespass on the one place he controls by will. the various pokemon of his grand army call this place home and lie in wait, discrete, prepared.
"you have guest."
fernando eyes his display.
"let them in."
he's expecting them. there's no doubt in his mind that NIKOLAI PETROV has fled for help. however, his predicament works against him. as a rocket, one of a prestigious title and disastrous past, he cannot afford the protection of the league. only stragglers, those who dare to defy the order of the organization dare to shield such a villain from his just desserts. fernando knows them well and it pains him all the same.
the swivel of his chair turns him to the skyline. the setting sun provides him the sight of slateport's ocean side. it's beautiful. reminds him of a simpler time, one he could share between those he loved and those that loved him equally so. it's about time to give it up, and it pains him to realize it. his ambition was already kept in check by the tan lines of his cherished one. without her -whether the elder or the younger- there's no one to tame his predestination. fernando continues on the path.
hoenn will know his wrath.
fernando turns again, this time facing the elevator that will eventually open. he's expectant and readied. last night was spent analyzing both their psychological profiles. he has a grasp at what angles to work but nothing is for certain. his own psychological profile is printed and filed neatly in a folder on his overly spacious desk. they're one of many documents he has prepared for todays' eventual confrontation. time and persistence pay off well. fernando's done his research. his displays are ready. all he needs to do is deliver one hell of a presentation. for that, he'll rely on what lies in his cupboard. a gift from dahlia goode herself. it's about time he put it to good use.
