TheKnightsFury - "I'm helping you because I'm not pig-headed like those ones. I understand what happened, but I was afraid of speaking up, as its not exactly very fun trying to convince an angry mob of partially drunk people. Also, if you just blatantly walk out the door, Xander, they'll tie you up, and probably force you to drink Rattata poison. And they'll just shoot me, so I advise we plan our next moves." Jeffrey pulled out a piece of paper from his apron pocket, then spread it out on the floor. The paper was dirty, stains everywhere, and the corners were yellowing. Clearly this piece of paper was old."
"This is the layout plan of the bar. It shows the air vent systems, all the windows and doors, and everything you'll need to escape." Jeffrey then focused his look on a large rectangle on one corner of the paper, as his hand slid towards it. "That's where your stuff is being held. Your Toxtricity fought back against them, so they chained him up. They stole stuff from your bag, but I was able to convince them to leave it alone, so they just took 4 of your Sitrus Berries and your Revive. I saw them bargaining over them, so you're most likely not getting those back." Jeffrey then pointed to the window you had seen before.
"Lotad here knows Grass Knot, so he can make some vines for us to climb on if we can't move those crates. Once we get to the window, we'll need to crawl through, then we can head through the air vents. The room up there is under lock and key, and I have the only key, so it should be empty. Once we get into the air vent, we can crawl through them and rescue your Toxtricity. Be prepared for a tight squeeze though."
It seemed Jeffrey was just a good bloke, which seemed to be a rarity around here. Had they really chained up Toxtricity?! Was this a rare occurrence for this lot, or did they do this sort of thing all the time? Xander looked over the map, making note of some of the more important details. Jeffrey's plan was to move through the vents, which didn't exactly sound comfortable. "Hmmm", Xander pondered, "the vents sound like the best course of action, but I'm not sure if both of us should go in. The way I'm thinking is that at the moment, they have no idea you've helped me, so there is no point in you putting yourself at more risk. What if you took Grookey's empty Pokeball back to where you found it, locked the door and just kept everyone busy? That way there is nothing tying you to me." Xander wasn't sure if Jeffrey would agree to his plan, but it made more sense to him. Two of them crawling around in the vents was going to make more noise and if something went wrong, they had no way of getting out.
Regardless of what option they went with, they'd need to move the crates. "Grookey, give me a hand will you?" Xander begun to move the crates with Grookey's help, making sure to do so quietly. He started stacking them so he could use them as a sort of makeshift staircase. He figured Jeffrey would probably give him a hand with the crates, once he decided whether he wanted to go with his plan or Xander's.
