Alyssa studied the map in silence. Moments that seemed to drag on for hours passed before she finally took her eyes away from the parchment, fixing them instead on Lee. The psychic held his breath, suddenly stricken by the pained look still in that sorrowful gaze.
She made her response: she could not forgive him.
A flood of emotions washed through Lee. The cloud of anger that ever haunted him settled over him first. He had to turn aside as he struggled to fight it back--but soon it was replaced with regret. Sadness. Surrender. Sighing, Lee nodded.
"I understand," he said quietly, releasing his clenched fists and letting them fall to his side in defeat. "You... you don't have to."
Without looking at her, he gathered up his things and looked to the Pokemon Center. And, of course, emerging out of it was the last person he wanted to see. Lee narrowed his eyes at Seth, but promptly turned to ignore him. To Alyssa, he spoke, "You'd... you'd better go get your team healed."
