Nikolas, don't worry about me. I can handle your father. I invited here so that I could detain him while you made your departure. If you need anything else from your house, this is your chance. Your first pokemon's pokeball, perhaps?
Your father is something you will have to deal with eventually, but today is not that day. I wanted to make sure you had the chance to grow stronger before you grappled with that particular demon.
I do have a small favor to ask of you, though. A little while ago, a young man attempted to burglarize my gym. I believe he also murdered his mother before disappearing. If you happen to come across him on your travels, please let me know.

Farewell, Nikolas. Until we meet again,
