Kestro trotted out of Windrose Library, stopping next to the nearest tree to make sure Saturn was behind him. The pair were preparing to explore Serene cave in order to confirm a rumor about a healing spring deep inside, but decided that Fallen Leaf Copse would do good for training and practicing record keeping and map making. Kestro was already trying to get a headstart in that regard, thinking about what he encountered when he met Russel and Deimos here. Sawsbuck... Ribombee... there were a few other Pokemon he couldn't quite remember living in the Copse, and he was sure that there were some he and the Windrose leaders hadn't encountered that day.

As for mapmaking, Kestro barely registered where Russel and Deimos had led him to reach the library, and he'd only left a few times before to check on his family and explore Monochrome Ruins. It'd be nice to get a proper map showing the way to the library from the entrance. And so here he was, not even finished with his first report and already planning another three. One can only hope trying to write up four separate reports won't strain the Cranidos too much.

Once they were outside, Saturn made note of where the sun was in the sky, which was quite difficult with all the trees in the way. Hmm. We should have enough daylight left, assuming we don't dawdle. Of course, immediately after coming to this conclusion, the Cubone started examining a nearby bush. Darn. No berries. Saturn looked over to make sure he wasn't too far behind Kestro, and picked up his pace to catch up.

"So, do you have any favored strategies when it comes to searching for items in a dungeon? Any methods that work better than others?" Saturn wasn't really sure what to do, other than make small talk at this point, at least until they got further in.

He did, however, make a mental note to repeatedly measure the sun's movement in the sky so he could record roughly how long it took to travel from the library to the edge of Fallen Leaf Copse. That seemed like a smart thing to do.

"Items? Mmm, no not really. Items ain't gonna fall out of the sky or jump out of a bush. Thankfully they're pretty unusual colors, or carried by a feral, so they're not too hard to find. I don't remember exactly how rich in items Fallen Leaf Copse is... I've only been through here once, and Russel and Deimos guided me for the most part. If I remember right, there aren't a lot of different berries." The Cranidos continued deeper into the forest, taking note of where the sun was himself before heading eastward. "Luckily for us, most Pokemon in the forest here are pretty peaceful or playful. Looking for sparring partners will be pretty easy without us having to worry about any actual danger."

It didn't take long for Windrose's tree to melt into the colorful mix of the autumnal forest. Kestro thankfully was taught how to find it, so he didn't worry too much when it disappeared. He thought about the journey ahead. By the sound of it, Saturn didn't have much in the way of supplies, and even Kestro didn't carry a massive amount with him. If they truly wanted to thoroughly explore and cross Serene Cave to find this supposed spring, they'd need to stock up. It might be a good idea to stop in Grassveil town to shop for some healing items. He'd heard of Dandy's Dyes reopening under a new name, and there was always the To-Goat Cafe.

Disappointed as he was, Saturn wasn't exactly surprised to hear that there really was no trick to finding more items. Guess I just have to get lucky., he thought. It didn't take very long for the library to stretch out of sight beyond the trees as they continued on. The dead leaves being crushed under their feet reminded Saturn that it's hard for land-bound creatures to travel through this area without making plenty of noise. This served as both a boon and a curse, but Saturn was determined to use it to his advantage. While he didn't quite have the heightened senses that some (usually more predatory) pokemon have, that certainly wasn't going to stop him from trying. Surely I'll get better at noticing small details around me if I practice at it.

Of course, there's always an upper limit to what any one 'mon can do, but there's nothing that can be done about that, short of temporary boosts from items and evolving, of course.

"So, how long have you been with the Scouts, Kestro?"

Kestro scratched his chin at the question, counting out the days in his head. "About a week and a half. I spent the first three days moving and settling in. After that I spent a couple of days picking out which kind of report to start my career off with. After that I spent another day before deciding to do a report on Monochrome ruins. Another day doing what I could to prepare for the trek, and then actually exploring it. I just returned yesterday and after sleeping through the night I had started organizing my notes and maps to write the report today."
His explanation done, Kestro turned the question back onto Saturn, "And you?" He'd assume Saturn was as new if not newer than himself. Kestro felt he probably jumped into the whole scouting business pretty quickly, and understood everyone had their own pace when it came to things.

Saturn thought for a moment, back to when him and Valen first joined together. "Well, I'm not sure of the exact date, but it had to have been about a week ago, give or take. A small bird pokemon named Valen joined with me." Upon talking about Valen, Saturn thought back to when they previously explored this dungeon while investigating a rumor about flowers coated in frost, which in turn made him think of that freakishly strong Ribombee that probably would have beaten him to a pulp had it not been for that guild member swooping in to save him. One of these days I'll join a guild, and be part of a team, and save others like she did for me... I just need to get stronger so I'll get accepted. And find someone to make a team with. Maybe Valen would be interested, or that Tempo fellow I met a while back... The thought of getting accepted and wearing one of those fancy guild bows around town really appealed to him. Yeah, that would be- Wait! Valen has something like that wrapped around one of his legs. Is he part of a guild already and I just never noticed? I mean, when we met that fire bird guild member she didn't seem to recognize him, so who knows? I'll have to ask him the next time we meet.

"So, when we get back from doing all this, maybe I can help you pick up where you left off on your previous reports. Even if it is just as simple as proofreading your work or something. It helps to get other points of view on your work, y'know?"

Kestro nodded, it seemed they both joined roughly around the same time. Not much a surprise, really. Neither of them appeared to be well known among the other scouts and visitors to the library. If anything only Deimos, Russel, and Elvire seemed well known. Given their positions, it made sense.
While Saturn seemed to reminisce about something, Kestro noticed something sticking out of the bushes. Before he could look himself, Saturn spoke up about helping with his reports. "Mmm, thanks but I don't know if that's needee. We can collaborate on the reports we make now, though. Hey, check those bushes real quick, I think I saw something there." He pointed towards the bushes, where the edge of something wooden stuck out.

Saturn looked over at where Kestro was pointing, and surely enough, he could see some kind of hand-crafted wooden object poking out. Saturn eagerly trotted up to check it out, but remembered this was no time to let his guard down. Better make sure it's not a trap... he held his bone club by the very end of the hilt and used it to poke at the bush from a relatively safe distance. From what he could tell, there was nothing out of the ordinary. So, he reached in and pulled out, not one, but two boxes from within the shrubbery. One was heavy and almost felt like it was full of rocks, while the other was so light that it almost felt empty. "Wow! This is quite the find, don't you think?" The naive Cubone tried to open them up, all too eager to discover the spoils hidden within, only to find that they were locked. He spent almost a minute trying to fiddle with the locks, hoping he could force them open. "Ugh. I dunno why I thought it would be that easy... Hey, Kestro. I don't think we can open these without some special equipment. Maybe someone in Grassveil can-"

Saturn hatched an idea upon looking at Kestro's hard, shiny, dome-shaped head. "Hmmm..." What if Kestro smashed them open with his dome skull? Nah, that would just break whatever is inside the box, too. It would never work. "Uh, nevermind. We should just see if anyone in Grassveil knows how to pick locks or something. Then we can split whatever's inside. But until then..."

Saturn looked down at the two strongboxes before him, realizing it might be a bit awkward to carry them in his satchel. "How are we gonna carry these out of here?"

Kestro lowered himself to the ground, waiting for Saturn to pull the boxes out of the bush. He found it a bit amusing that the Cubone was wary enough to poke the bush with his stick. They were still fairly close to the library. Not to mention the feral Pokemon of Fallen Leaf Copse were much more docile than those of other dungeons. At least from Kestro's experience. Kestro wondered about that for a moment.

Why would they be more docile? The Cranidos didn't know much about the history of the dungeon, so all he could do was compare it to the other places he'd been. His first home in the desert had particularly vicious ferals. Pecha forest certainly had territorial Pokemon, and Shadowhue and Monochrome ruins' ferals were more so. Maybe it's cause Fallen Leaf Copse had the protection of the lake? Travel in and out of the dungeon was slightly limited, so perhaps that lack of constant intruders just fed into the docile nature of the dungeon's current inhabitants.

He shook his head a bit, bringing himself back to the present as Saturn spoke up. Kestro didn't really follow with what Saturn's initial idea was, but he did confirm his hope of someone in Grassveil being able to open boxes. "There's a shop in the Guild called the...'It's a me' Swap-shop. Mmm that doesn't sound quite right but it is in the guild."

Kestro didn't even pay much attention to Saturn's worry about carrying the boxes. The Cranidos, almost on instinct alone, hefted himself up and walked beside Saturn. The Rock type then pushed one of the boxes apart from the other just enough for Kestro to settle in between them. "Grab two ropes and wrap them around me and the boxes, I can carry them pretty easily," he said, hooking the tip of his beak into the lighter box to lift it up so Saturn could get the ropes under it first.
