"You really don't have to clean up after me, Sally. And what's with you learning how to talk?"
"Nonsense, master. You fed and cleaned up after me for all these years, so now it's my turn to help you out. Besides, now that I'm a Salazzle, I can communicate with you better."
Lucario couldn't help but chuckle at Sally's enthusiasm. He had taken in the Salandit months ago, and was overjoyed when she had evolved into a Salazzle.
"I'm glad you're so eager to help, Sally. But I think I'll be just fine."
As Lucario finished speaking, his girlfriend Meowstic entered the room and couldn't help but giggle at the sight of Sally, who was now wearing a maid's outfit.
"It looks like your pet has a crush on you, Lucario," she said, laughing.
Lucario blushed and Sally averted her gaze.
"Ah, don't be embarrassed," Meowstic said, still giggling. "It's cute that she wants to take care of you."
Sally smiled shyly, and Lucario smiled back. He knew that Sally would always be there for him, no matter what.
