“Don’t-! Don’t tell me how to handle my own Pokémon!” Lars said, crossing his arms with a huff. When Sadie didn’t respond, he cracked open an eye to look over at her.
After staring at the image of Sadie holding the vulpix and talking to it like it was her baby for a good minute, Lars blushed and moved to join her.
