Samantha was up early that day, visiting Professor Oak in his lab, getting a sneak peek of the new pokemon. She was amazed at how many there were and more arising. "Wow." She said towards him as he walked towards his desk, waving a hand for her to sit in the chair beside his desk. "So, who else knows about the new pokemon, Professor?" She asked sweetly as he chuckled before answering. "Well, there is this other person, who shall remain nameless..." That was all he had to say to her. She rolled her eyes while scoffing the name. "Must be Kira." Samantha leaned back in her seat and folded her arms over her chest, letting out a light huff. "Well, you won't like what I have to tell you next then." Her eyes peered towards Professor Oak after he spoke those words. He continued talking after a light laugh. "I chose you two to be in a tournament." Her eyes widened as she jumped up out of her seat, her arms outstretched as she also paced back and forth, speaking. "What? Why him? Can you change that decision? Is it too late?" She repeatedly asked as Professor Oak looked at her and spoke in a serious tone. "Please, Samantha, just give him a chance." She stopped then stood there. "I don't give people a chance after they stab me in the back. You know what he did." She said while sitting back down with a heavy sigh. "Well, speaking of the devil, here is Kira walking up here now." Professor Oak said. Samantha eyes instantly turned to look outside the window. "I'm out of here." Professor Oak sighed while placing his hand over his temple, rubbing it in the process. "Please stay, Samantha, I want to tell you both the good news." He said as she looked back at Kira entering. 'Let the games begin.' She thought to herself while turning herself away from him.
