The spotlight shone in Dawn’s eyes and she brought her arm up to shield them. Squinting through the glare into the middle distance, she could barely make out the figures of nine, maybe ten people, standing, sitting, and no doubt looking at her. There were other shapes there, too – not human or Pokémon. Two of them were tall, ending in glowing yellow-white discs. They were the spotlights, she could see that now, and they were pointing directly at her. There was a long, fuzzy thing on a stick, like a Diglett – a boom mike. So that meant the other two things she could make out were video cameras… and they were also looking directly at her.
Was… Was she… on TV?
Dawn’s mouth dropped. She was on TV! It had to be true! That was what the man had said, after all: that she would be a star!
