ABL Note: Apologies for the wait here Mask! OTL Your patience is appreciated.

A rather quiet young gentleman steps through the Hatchery's doors. As per usual, the lobby seems to be distinctly understaffed. But this trainer is exceedingly polite, and doesn't make a fuss despite being made to wait for some time. His patience becomes outweighed by curiosity when he hears a cheerful voice echoing down the hallway.

Upon investigating further, he finds the absent-minded Miss Lulu. Today, she's fully immersed in a game of pat-a-cake. The round pink Pokémon she's playing with has such tiny hands, the nursemaid is only using two fingers to "pat" with. It's hard to say which of the two is smiling more. The happy creature sways from side to side as the game continues, as something like a curled ponytail bobs atop her head. Within the pocket on her belly, there appears to be... another egg? No, it's too small. Surely it couldn't be a real specimen. But the object is definitely a creamy colour with muted green spots, the kind so often depicted in trainer's guides and textbooks.

The gentleman lightly raps on the doorway with his knuckles. Miss Lulu whirls her head around to see who the visitor is, while the Pokémon dashes to hide behind the girl's skirt. With a soothing hand on the timid baby, the nursery attendant welcomes Rorik in.

"Hello there!" she says warmly. "Uh, I do apologise for getting caught up with our fun there, I know I lose track of time here and there..."

Very gently, the girl guides the new hatchling around herself to stand in front of her. "Your new Pokémon is in perfect health," Miss Lulu coos proudly. Then she seems to remember something. "Ah, of course! Perhaps you already know this, but this species does like to carry small items in their pouches," she explains, gesturing downwards to the object the creature is holding onto. "And so I had this to give her.'s hand-painted, you see," she adds, somewhat bashfully.

"Take good care of her now, won't you?"

Rorik has hatched a lv. 1 female Happiny! Your Pokémon knows the Egg Move Last Resort.
