The pavement made sharp, chipper pops beneath his tap shoe soles. Burgh attempted to shut out everything but how pleasant this noise sounded, but was hardly successful.
"I should just go home," he muttered to himself, covering his eyes with both palms and leaning heavily against his knees. From where he sat outside Lenora's party, he could still hear their sounds of merrymaking inside. Elesa's voice cut through the rest of them like a knife, making him frown.

He did have the most adorable bug costumes, and he hardly ever got to wear them. No, he wasn't upset by her motive. He was upset by the fact that he hadn't brought a change of clothes, and there was no way he was going to hang out around the other gym leaders and their families dressed in a Volcarona costume.
