Charms For Sale

Who: Cookie, Open
Where: The Belfry
When: Lunchtime, the week after the incident
What: An omamori stand

It was unusual for Cookie to set up so close to the school, let alone so out in the open, but these were unusual times. She sat behind a table in the hall that fed into the cafeteria. It was the kind of collapsible table usually used for entirely above-ground, school-sponsored purposes, like the sale of baked goods or sign ups to the few extracurricular events the Sinjoh region would permit. The colourful paper slips arranged cheerfully across the table looked perfectly legitimate, but Cookie’s presence behind the table - slouched lazily in her chair, feet up on another, dozing to the drone of the pop machine - was probably enough to give pause.

Ms. Poplar had already given her the gears. She’d relented when Cookie assured her that she wasn’t selling the charms - that this was a benevolent act, meant to soothe the shaky nerves of the student body. They were souvenirs originally from a trip to Ecruteak city, and now they were here, and Cookie was distributing them Out Of The Goodness Of Her Heart. Charms might be superstitious, but wasn't it enough if it helped people feel a little bit safer?

Ms. Poplar had let it go in exchange for a love charm, after issuing an ominous warning about what would happen to Cookie if she was caught later with students’ lunch money.

Luckily, Cookie was interested in plenty of things other than petty cash.

"I haven't yet but how beautiful you are!"

Rhyssa smiled gently at the pokemon, excited to meet Cookie's friend but very conscious of her nervousness.

"It's alright, don't worry, Polly. We're safe and sound here." Fallon gave a soft woo and hopped down to join the Ralts, swaying a little as he made comforting sounds. Not for the first time, Rhyssa wished she could understand him better. He seemed like he was being quite gentlemanly, though, and that was lovely.
