Riding the Wheel certainly hadn't been a very good idea at all. One second, Charlotte was sitting inside her carriage as the Wheel started to move, and the next, she was screaming her lungs out, clutching her dear Flare for comfort with one hand and hanging on to her seat for dear life, as it sped up without showing any signs of slowing down. The last thing Charlotte remembered before blacking out was finally letting go of her seat and banging her head... somewhere...

Speaking of Flare, Charlotte noticed that Flare was nowhere to be seen; Volcanus and Festus were still talking to each other about the Big Wheel, but the girl wasn't paying any attention to their conversation. She needed to find Flare soon, and fast - without Flare, well, she didn't even want to think about it...
"Um, excuse me," Charlotte spoke up, albeit a little bit nervously - after all, for all she knew, they could be murderers or rapists, and she didn't trust strangers easily. "Have you two seen a female Vulpix anywhere, perhaps? She... she's wearing a red neckerchief, and, well, um, she's my Pokémon, you see..." Charlotte trailed off, unable to continue. The thoughts of losing Flare forever was plaguing her mind enough already.*
