Bella's not sure where she has wandered. She thought she was about to walk into a shop, but this appears to be an unattended bar. With none of the windows associated with the shop she thought she was entering. It could be an elaborate psychic assault of some kind, but it doesn't feel very... assault-y... and she was in the middle of a town and doesn't think any humans want to sic their 'mon on her. It's strange. She approaches the bar, looking around warily, hand hovering near her belt.

Sabrina is having an argument with her sister while walking. "I cannot even begin to tell you how wrong you are. I need to invent at least ten new words, that's how..."

She stops. She's sure she went trough a door that leads to a hallway, not.... where ever this is.

She turns to Ann. "Was there always a bar here or did I suddenly go insane?"

"If you have it's contagious. We'd better-"

The door they came through is no longer there.
Permalink
"Oh come on! What is this?"

Sabrina kicks the place where the door used to be. Nothing changes.

The girl near the bar whips her head around to look at the newcomers. "You don't know what's going on either, huh?" she sighs.

Permalink

"Either? I don't know if that's reassuring or not."

Permalink
"I don't know about you, but I'm going with not."

Ann looks at the stranger. "How'd you get here? I don't think I've seen you around."
Permalink

"I was walking into a store for Potions and Pokéballs and I found this instead."

Permalink

"Potions and what?"

Permalink

"Pokéballs." She pats her belt. "A couple of mine are threatening to wear out."

Permalink

"I think we have a failure to communicate. I literally do not know what you mean."

Permalink

"Po-ké-balls. The balls. That you keep Pokémon in. Because otherwise it would be hard to get some of them through doors or whatever?" She plucks one of the balls off her belt and waves it around. "These things?"

Permalink

"O-kay," Ann says. It does not sound like she understood anything.

Permalink

While the two of them have been talking Sabrina has walked up to the bar. She kicks it to see what happens.

Permalink
Excuse me, says a napkin.

The girl with the Pokéballs yelps.
Permalink

Sabrina practically jumps, and turns around. "You two saw that, right?"

Permalink

"Yeah, a napkin just appeared out of nowhere!"

Permalink

Ann walks up to her sister and pokes her. "You did this. I have no idea how, but you did this. So, you go touch it."

Permalink
Sabrina carefully picks up the napkin between her thumb and forefinger.

She reads it aloud.
Permalink

I didn't mean to startle you, says a new napkin.

Permalink
This time Sabrina doesn't jump, she merely drops the napkin she was holding.

She exchanges one look with her sister, picks up the other napkin and reads it.
Permalink

"Who is 'I'?" Ann says slowly.

Permalink
I'm the bar.

"You're a talking bar."

Insofar as writing is talking, yes.

"Riiiiight."

Can I interest any of you in a beverage? First one's free.
Permalink

"No, let's instead get back to the part where you're a talking bar. I-I don't even know where to start. Where did you come from, how do you make stuff appear out of thin air? Where did the door go, how can we get back?"

Permalink

Unfortunately, I don't have a perfect memory and can't tell you anything about how I began to exist. I have always been able to make things appear and it comes very naturally to me. Your door will reappear in time but neither you nor I can control how much time.

Permalink
"Well, isn't that convenient."

The next thing she addresses to Ann. "Do you want to take free food from a mysterious thing or person who calls itself bar that may or may not have locked us here?"
