Brian blinked, mildly surprised. "PokeCafe? Yeah, my dad runs that over in Celadon. Your dad is the CEO? Mr. Topaz himself?" He chuckled. "Small world, huh?" Finally, Brian let Lemres go, satisfied he wasn't going to ditch them.
This new news made him think, though... both of their parents were well off, and yet he and Lemres were so totally unlike one another. He had never even thought of using his parent's influence like Lemres had, and he hardly kept more than a handful of bills on him in case he got mugged; Lemres was probably the kind of person who kept a portable bank with him at all times. Brian rolled his eyes for just a moment, muttering to himself: "I wonder how we both turned out so different." He glanced over at his Eevee, who yipped happily at Lemres' Luxio.
