The curious Kecleon tiptoed to Shroomsworth’s quarters once more, placing the side of her head against the door to listen. It was completely silent. Eerily so. Quietly, she reached down to test the knob, only to have it turn on its own!
Panicking, PK did the only thing she could think of at the time. She blended in with her surroundings, as Kecleons tend to do. Staying still against the wall next to the door, she was practically invisible. If she were moving, one might be able to spot the zig-zag pattern on her belly, but that was not the case here.
Out from his room came Shroomsworth. He was carrying documents of some sort as he looked about to see of the coast was clear, before quietly heading for the HQ exit. It was far too dark to make out what he was holding, but it had to have been what he was so focused on earlier.“What is he up to..?”
PK mused. She had never, ever seen her fellow leader sneaking around like this. She had to follow him!
Moving slowly, the Kecleon followed her teammate outside, taking care not to give herself away. Any time it seemed like Shroomsworth would turn around at all, she stopped in her tracks, nervously waiting for him to continue.
It was too late for any other Pokemon to be roaming about. Was Shroomsworth going to meet someone? Why would he meet someone so late at night? It was a strange route he took. Right around behind the HQ, into Creeping Forest. What a terrible place to go!
It did make it easier for PK to follow him, though. Each tree provided her cover as she slinked between them as nothing more than a faint, bobbling red zigzag. Not even that was noticed, thanks to her expert sneaking!
