James had a girlfriend. "Had" being the operative word there. He had rescued a cute young lady named Selphy who was lost in Lost Cave. The irony was not lost on them and they bonded over the comedy of the situation. She was very flirty with James as he led her back to her home. Afterwards James could not help but think about her, so only a short while after their romantic encounter he returned to her home. She was there, but to his horror she did not recognize him! James had fooled himself, Selphy was not his girlfriend she was a girl with memory problems. James had no girlfriend.
It has been fun exploring the Sevii Islands and not knowing exactly what I will find on each island. I have not played anymore Emerald since Sunday's post.
