Once again, pink and white are not Melissa's colors, and she bids farewell to the second egg, admitting that it was probably best that someone else took it.

Wildfire and Cirrus both continue to fill their stomachs with berries while searching for another egg; suddenly, Cirrus lets out a surprised chirp at the discovery of two pink eyes staring at him from one of the hollows in the tree...

Pyuku mu? (Having fun?) Before the fluffy bird can answer, the creature within the hollow is gone – an Easter basket left in its place. After a brief once-over with his sharp eyes to make sure that the basket is safe, Cirrus dutifully picks up the basket and carries it down to his trainer for inspection – looks like there's an egg in here! The tan-colored shell immediately begins to crack to the sound of pecking, as an owl's face appears from the cracks. Its eyes fill with wonder at the sight of Melissa and her Pokemon companions. The little creature seems filled with hope that it might go on adventures with these brand new friends!

Melissa followed her Pokemon, not really expecting to get what she'd come out here for. At best, maybe she'd get Pikipek, which was a bird, at least, but the other possibilities she'd be happy to go home with weren't here. She'd taken a gamble and fully expected to lose; with only one chance left, well, her luck hadn't ever really been that great.

Meanwhile, Cirrus let out a startled chirp as he landed next to a hollow and spotted a pair of pink eyes staring out at him, prompting concerned calls from both Wildfire and Melissa. He absently twittered a reassurance as the Alolan cheekily asked, "Pyuku mu?" and then disappeared, not even bothering to hang around for an answer. Cirrus blinked at the sudden appearance of an Easter basket, peered into the tree hollow to ensure that the Alolan had actually disappeared, and then eyed the Easter basket consideringly. A tan-colored egg, an odd diamond-shaped crystal, an Ice TM, three Springtide Chocolate Rare Candies, and some kind of fabric folded up under all of it as some kind of cushion. The contents looked right, based on what Melissa had read out to them from the trainer chats, and the egg was probably even the one she'd been looking for! Cirrus grabbed the basket's handle and brought it down to where Wildfire and Melissa were waiting at the base of the tree, watching him with some concern and curiosity.

He twittered cheerfully as they both turned their attention to the basket, fluttering to the ground so as not to tip the thing over.

"What did you find?" Melissa shot him a smile as Wildfire looked inside and then grinned at him.

"Quil quil!"

Cirrus preened at the praise, but, before Melissa had a chance to ask again, the sound of tapping became audible. The egg abruptly became the focus of three pairs of eyes and Melissa only had a moment to register the tan-colored shell before the egg broke open, a round owl with a green bowtie spilling out. The newly-hatched Pokemon fluttered to their feet and blinked up at the three of them, hooting out a shy, hopeful greeting.

Melissa sat down, still having trouble processing the sight in front of her, but her eyes were already lighting up and a smile was starting to spread across her face. Wildfire exchanged a look with Cirrus and left her to it.

"Quil," he said before the silence stretched too long. "Cyn da quil. Cyn cynda quil cyn da quil."

The baby Rowlet tilted their head to the side and glanced at Cirrus, who twittered his agreement with a nod towards Melissa. They looked back at Melissa, down at the rim of the basket, and then hopped to the ground, making their way over to Melissa, who still hadn't managed to find her words.

They stopped right in front of Melissa and hooted expectantly.

"Hi there, little one," Melissa finally managed to say. "You have no idea just how delighted I am to see you."

Rowlet hooted happily and glanced back at Wildfire and Cirrus. Melissa laughed.

"Okay. Maybe you have some idea." She paused. " a boy?"

Rowlet hooted and shook her head.

"A girl then."

Rowlet hooted again and tilted her head in question. Wildfire padded over, while Cirrus just flew up to Melissa's left shoulder.

"Well, I try to give all of my Pokemon nicknames, though a few of them are still waiting on theirs, and I wanted to make sure it's appropriate." She shrugged, a bit sheepish. "So, what do you think of Spirit?"

Rowlet blinked and tilted her head, looking thoughtful. She glanced at Wildfire, then Cirrus, and then nodded, hooting shyly.

"Well, then," Melissa said, helping Wildfire back onto her other shoulder, "welcome to the team, Spirit."

She held out her forearm for Spirit to climb onto and then snagged the basket as she got to her feet. It took Melissa a moment to figure out which way they needed to go to head back to the mainland, but they were quickly on their way home.
