Ivy brushed her reddish hair away from her face and stretched as she took a look around her small office in the Ranger Registration Office. After about a week of adjusting to her new job, she had finally found the time to unpack her box of stuff from its temporary home on top of her desk. She didn't own much other than some photos and other homey objects like her good luck paperweight in the shape of a Pokéball, but it made the place look a little less like an abandoned closet and more like someone actually worked there.
Now that the holiday craze was dying down, she was ready to settle into the normal routine of Park maintenance and taking Trainers on runs. She weaved around the rectangular steel desk to get to the door, taking a peek into the hall and the stationary stand next to the plaque with her name on it. There was a manila folder resting on top, where she would be sure to see it. It looked like someone had dropped off a run for her while she was unpacking.
She grabbed it, opening the flap as she walked back into her office. She had a first-timer's trip lined up for today. She scanned the contents of the file, learning that her Trainer's name was Ty and that he wanted to go through the Woods. She thought that was an appropriate place to go for the first time in the Park with a large selection of Pokémon to see. He had a nice selection of partners on file as well, and she was sure they'd help them navigate the area easily.
She put the paperwork neatly on her desk so she could fill the rest of it out when they finished the run. Checking her pants pockets, she made sure she had a couple of 'just in case' items if her Trainer happened to get into a bind, as well as practical things like a flashlight and the coiled rope she snapped onto her belt. Scanning the room, there was just one more thing she needed before she could leave.
“Haxbat, Haxbat, where did you go?”
She leafed through papers in her desk drawers and peered under her chair trying to glimpse her Crobat's Pokéball. At first, he refused to come near the building, being too cautious of all the new people. Lately he had gotten used to all of them, but unfortunately, a near six foot bat was not practical inside a busy office building, so into the ball he went. If she recalled correctly, she also thought there was also a ranger here that really didn't like members of the Crobat family, and she didn't want to start anything her second week on the job.
“Ah, there you are.” The red and white ball sat inconspicuously on top of her gray filing cabinet, and she snatched it up as she headed out, sure to close the door behind her.
From there, she made her way outside, only waving to the others she saw, not wanting to disturb them. She emerged from the building into bright sunlight, and she was glad it was supposed to be a nice day. The Woods could get dark in places, and she would take any help that she could get with that.
Ivy threw Haxbat's ball into the air, smiling as the large bat stretched his wings with a relieving noise. She caught the returning ball on reflex and watched her bat fly several figure eights through the air before coming to hover next to her. The Woods was only a short ways away, so she would just wait for her Trainer here. Sometimes a Trainer and Ranger agreed to meet at the place, but the main outpost was the easiest to find, and that would probably be better for someone who had never been here before.
The Woods area was visible in the distance, the trees lining up to make a straight path into the forest. Ivy was looking forward to having a good time, hoping that they would see some interesting Pokémon on the trip. With that thought, she leaned against the front of the main outpost and waited with her Crobat at her side.
