Ranger Nick's log
"Man, I got way too much crap" I said, setting down my last cardboard box. The small room that was now my new office felt quite bland with the blank walls and unopened boxes stacked on top of the empty desk. Still, it was a lot better than no office, which was what I had at my old job as a Pokemon researcher. I mean, I loved researching, but being a ranger I can still research yet enjoy the outdoors as well.
Issac came rolling in, pushing a box that I apparently left behind.
"Whoops, thanks Issac. Guess I'm more nervous than I thought I am."
It was only my first day on the job, but I heard that I was already getting a trainer. The anticipation was staring to get to me. Any moment now someone was going to walk in the door, file in hand, and give me my first assignment.
No sooner than the thought went through my head that one of my Co-workers stepped in, manila folder in his hand. I recognized him immediately as Ranger Jay.
"Hey man," he said "guess what? we got a train- ack!"
He stopped short as soon as he set eyes on Issac. I'm used to it by now. Electrode will give anyone pause due to their tendency to explode without warning. It always makes me chuckle inside whenever someone flinches in Issac's presence. At least I don't get messed with. Anyway, nobody has to worry about Issac, I trained him for years to never explode without my command. But I wasn't about to tell Jay this, heh heh heh.
"Whoops, sorry about that." I said, recalling Issac to his Pokeball. "What were you saying?"
Jay seemed undeterred by Issac. I'm guessing he figured that I wouldn't risk blowing up half of the Ranger Station. "As I was saying, welcome to the force Nick, here's your first trainer."
He handed me the file. "It's at the Botanical Gardens. A great place to start off at. You shouldn't really find yourself in a bad situation."
"Thanks Jay," I said, taking the file and looking it over. "Hmm... Joe Smith... Infernape... looks good! Alright, I'll head over there now. Thanks Jay!"
"No Problem. Don't forget anything."
I grabbed my backpack and headed over to the jeeps. Personally, I can't stand artificial teleportation. I'd rather drive any day. Fortunally, the Botanical Gardens were only a few minutes away. As soon as I got to the gates, I spied a young trainer wearing a baseball cap sitting on a bench near the rest station. He was probably either 15 or 16 years old.
I drove over to where he was sitting and hopped out of the jeep, Issac following behind. "Hi, my name's Ranger Nick. Where would you like to go first?"
