Gau sighed. As per usual is unusual manner of speaking had causes some confusion, he didn't mind really he just didn't appreciate being made to look a fool. He wasn't going to say a word though but followed behind Willow. At this point he had decided that despite her rapidly shifting emotions she was probably the only one of them with her head screwed on the right way.
As the group walked out of the pokemon centre he couldn't help but feel empty. He was used to leaving his home but he had really settled in Sandgem and he couldn't help but feel that he was never going to see it again. He made a mental note to make sure Teddiursa was given to one of his fellow travellers if he didn't make it.
He needed to talk to Julian. He wanted to know where he was from and where he had gained knowledge of military strategies. He seemed to know too much to have simply read a little about them in a brief period of interest like Gau. Who are you? That was the one thought running through his mind as they halted to collect supplies.
