    Lucas McMillan
    After Class (Day 2)

    Lucas blinked, dumbfounded. She's just gonna leave us like this? She won't even show us what's in the Ball? he thought, staring at where the Ball was. He grabbed his stuff and shoved it buck into his bag except his book. He opened it to where he left off, waiting for the crowd by the door to clear up. Ace yipped, startling Lucas. He had forgotten his friend was out. Lucas smiled, putting away his book to pet his partner. He looked up and saw that there was less of a crowd by the door, so he got up and left the class, still slightly mad at his teacher. Lucas felt and heard his stomach growl, so he started to head to the cafeteria, Ace walking beside him. When he got to the cafeteria, he got some food for him and his Pokemon. They ate fast and got out of the cafeteria even faster. ”All right. Now what? You guys up for some training?” he asked. All three of his Pokemon all made some sort of noise in agreement, so they headed out towards the forest.
    Frodo: I can't do this, Sam.
    Sam: I know. It's all wrong. By rights we shouldn't even be here. But we are. It's like in the great stories Mr. Frodo. The ones that really mattered. Full of darkness and danger they were, and sometimes you didn't want to know the end. Because how could the end be happy. How could the world go back to the way it was when so much bad happened? But in the end, it's only a passing thing, this shadow. Even darkness must pass. A new day will come. And when the sun shines it will shine out the clearer. Those were the stories that stayed with you. That meant something. Even if you were too small to understand why. But I think, Mr. Frodo, I do understand. I know now. Folk in those stories had lots of chances of turning back only they didn’t. Because they were holding on to something.
    Frodo: What are we holding on to, Sam?
    Sam: That there’s some good in this world, Mr. Frodo. And it’s worth fighting for.
