The Ultimate Showdown: Team Pokemon vs Team Shadow Pokemon - Page 464
Kira: You two have been a part a long time, and now the past could be coming back to huant Moonlight…
Espeon: What do you mean?
Kira: When you and Brandon suddnely disappeared, Moonlight, waited for your return. She'd sit by the windowsil waiting for you, when she was 13, she had cancer, that was killing her day by day, so I had to made a hard choice. Let her die, or risk the operation to save her life. She managed to pull through but the loss was her ability to have children of her own. She's 17 now.
Espeon: We had to disappear. We were being trained to run a Gym.
Kira: Yeah, but neither of you said about it, you just left. She wouldn't eat for days.
Brandon: That was my fault… I forgot Espeon had a girlfriend, and by the time I remembered, it was too late.
Kira: *Looks at Moonlight who's asleep* It's taken me 2 years to get the weight back on her. Poor thing look like a sack of bones….
Espeon: Well, there'll be no more disappearances.
Kira: Hopefully not. *Picks up Moonlight so she has both Espeon and Moonlight in her arms*
Moonlight: *Joins in*
Kira: You two are such purr boxes.
Brandon: They're just being cute.
Kira: Ah, they've always been cute.
