The music ended. The curtains fell. Another musical in Nimbasa City as finished. The pokemon actors had left the stage and were now returning to their trainers.
"Good work, Oshiku." Renne called to her Dewott. Oshiku stepped over to Renne and grabbed her open hand. The two walked out and went the lobby of the Musical Theater. They were greeted by many fans. Renne signed autographs and Oshiku pressed an ink-covered paw against paper for their begging fans.
The musicals were different than they use to be. Instead of random pokemon dancing, there were actual plays writen and the cast for the plays were not handed out at random. Nowadays, if you wanted your pokemon in the musicals, you'd have to train them to be acting pokemon, and have them audition. Luckly though, for newcomers, the Musical Theater offered lessons, and there was the new Theatrical School for Pokemon and Trainers, the TSPT, which was created to help trainers and their pokemon become stars.
But Oshiku was the real star of the theater, he always had the best roles. In one play, he played as a notorious theif, and everyone cheered as he got away. In another, Oshiku was the hero, saving a poor pokemon from danger.
"Hey, Renne." Someone tapped Renne's shoulder. Renne turned and meet Nathan. Nathan was the trainer of Oshiku's female co-star Sinona, a Cinccino. Sinona stepped over to Oshiku and tapped him also, mimicing Nathan.
"Oh, hi, Nathan." Renne smiled. "What do you need?"
"I was going to ask if..." Nathan stopped. "It's crowded, I don't want to ask you here."
"Is it about the new script?" Renne asked.
"Sort of." Nathan replied. "I'll talk to you when the fans are gone."
"Alright." Renne watched Nathan leave. She felt a tug on her pant leg. Renne looked down to Oshiku. He pointed the way Nathan and Sinona went.
"We'll meet up with them in a bit." Renne reassured him.
The fans had gone and the theather was getting cleaned up. Renne and Oshiku were in the dressing room, getting there stuff together to head out. Oshiku grabbed Renne's cellphone carried it in his two paws.
"Gonna carry my heavy cellphone for me, what a kind gentleman you are." Renne laughed lightly. Oshiku smiled proudly, and followed her out the door. Renne and Oshiku went to the front and meet up with Nathan and Sinona.
"Sorry if we kept you waiting." Renne said when that got over to them.
"It's alright." Nathan replied. "Here." He handed Renne a stack of paper.
"New script?" Renne asked, she took the paper's and started reading.
"Yeah, this one has a stronger female role than male." Nathan told.
"Oh, I see, Sinona's going for lead then?" Renne asked unphased.
"Uh, yeah, I wanted to make sure you got a copy of the script though, the male roles are smaller in this one, just so you knew."
"Yeah, its alright. Thanks though, I can have Oshiku practice a bit before we come back for character auditions." Renne smiled. "Anyways we better get going, I'll see you around." Renne waved good-bye before leading Oshiku home.
