"No, it's fine," I weakly laughed after she apologized. "Freaky's one word for it."
I listened as she launched into a rushed explanations--actually, I'm surprised that I got anything out of it, she was talking so fast. Still, I got the gist of it. She was pretty desperate to get out of this Arceus-forsaken woods. I frowned slightly, wishing that we could have been heading in the same direction.
"Uh, Zayna," I shook her hand and introduced myself, still feeling a little shaken. "And sure, Navi Town is..."
I stopped, staring down the road in both directions. Suddenly, I realized... I had lost my sense of direction after heading into the woods. I didn't know which way I had come from and which way I was headed.
"Aw, crud," I muttered under my breath. Realizing that Elaine was waiting for a reply, I stuttered, "Um, well... actually..."
Blaze stepped in right then and saved me from embarrassment. Tapping on my knee, he pointed in the right direction.
"Oh, right! Navi Town's right that way," I thanked Blaze with a nod and mimicked his gesture. "If you keep to the road, you should be there in no time."
I looked her over in concern, noting her grizzled appearance. Honestly hoping to help, I asked, "Is there anything else I can help with?"
"Oh, you're a lifesaver!" Elaine smiles. "I can't wait to have a hot shower, ugh!"
She starts fiddling with her hair. "I must look like a total mess. Truth is, I've been out here for days
. I must be going in circles or something!" she sighs. "Anyway you've been a huge help!"
She turns to blaze. "And aren't you just a cutie?!" she grins. "I'm fine really," she says when she sees your worried expression. "I'm a Pokemon trainer too, I just competed in the Johto league!" She watches your face. "You don't believe me, do you?" she laughs, waving a hand dismissively. "Anyway I should go. Thanks again! Maybe I'll see you around. Next time we can have a battle!"
