Royalty is wasted on those who don't achieve definition in conflict and build their own legacy.
One by one, the Victorian lamp posts lining the stone-paved streets of Rustboro flickered on as the hazy orange sun on the horizon continued to set. Hours previous, these same streets were bustling with pedestrian traffic as the citizens of the historic city clocked out from their 9 to 5 jobs and went home. A few tourists and other civilians still lingered, enjoying evening pastries and drinks at the many cafés and browsing the various shopping outlets that lined the boulevards as well. But certainly not enough to worry about bumping into anyone.
With his right hand interlaced with her left, Remiel led Isra through the quaint town center and towards the Kalosian restaurant they had made reservations for. It was only a few blocks away now, but there was no rush to reach it. They'd left his modest home with time after she'd arrived from Lilycove under the shade of her umbrella prior. The weekend was theirs to spend as they pleased. And if she happened to pull him away elsewhere, Remiel had learned to enjoy such spontaneity.
Though he would have preferred spending time with her alone, however, Herschel had other ideas. Far more defiant and childish than his other well disciplined pokémon, the Shiny Applin had refused to stay in its luxury ball after he'd left his home. Instead, it rolled along happily behind them as they walked. Every so often it would stop to poke its yellow eyes out from the top of the hollowed out apple and assess its surroundings.
It chirped, suddenly realizing it was being left behind before withdrawing into its apple again and continuing its bumpy roll over the stone-paved sidewalks.
Wearing a black aran-knit sweater and brown slacks, the black-haired prince regarded the Applin with a disapproving look and sigh. He turned away from it afterwards to face the young woman he'd finally managed to bring down here instead. She was looking as lovely as ever, of course. But he had a feeling she already knew that. "... Penny for your thoughts?"
