__________________________________________________ _______________
Chapter 1

Pr: The hooded lady sat in the early morning hours at the train station, waiting for him to come. She glanced at her small silver waterproof watch, and settled with her back against the nearest tree, waiting for the next train to arrive
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Four friends walked through the sunset. It was just an average afternoon in Hoen

"Owwww!!! Whined May,

"My feet hurt, I'm tired! When do we get wherever we're going?" nobody answered.

"Hello? Ash? Brock? Max? What's up?"

"Nothing May," Answered Max,
"They're obviously thinking about somthing"

The four soon entered a town and still, the gloomy black haired boy kept silent.
"Ash!"

Ash awoke from his day-dreaming as someone stopped him.

"Ash? Ash Ketcham? Is that you? Where's Mist..."

Ash glared at the tall, thin boy with the greenish hair.

"Tracey, she's..." Then Ash became furious and shoved his old friend aside and ran around the corner, out of sight.

"What did I say?"

"C'mon, Tracey, let's head to the Pokemon center, and I'll tell you all about it." Said Brock, Taking Max down off his shoulders then walking ahead with Tracey Scetchit.

"Did I miss somthing?" Max and May said in unison as they followed the two older boys to the Pokemon center.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Ash sat in the shade under a tree,

*I can't face her...* He pulled a note out of his coat pocket. It read:

Ash, please! I beg you! Meet me in Furgonson town. I have somthing to show you! Please!

*I can't... not after what I did to her...* A silent tear ran down his face,
*She couldn't have forgiven me... could she?*
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

"Nurse Joy! I'm sick with love for you! I'll be your patient any time!"

"Come again?"

Max pulled Brock away by the pant leg.

"Um... We need a place to stay for the night. Do you have any rooms open?" Asked Tracey

"Oh, I'm so sorry but currently all the rooms are taken for the two big competitions..."

"COMPETITIONS?!?!?!?!" Cried May,
"WHERE ARE THEY! i NEED TO ENTER I..."

"Calm down May," Said Ash as he sauntered into the room,
"There's one in the next town, Furgonson. I think I know a place to stay..." he said quietly. Let's head for the train station."

"So, Ash, long time no see. It's been a whole year already! Can you believe that?" Asked Tracey is his usual chipper way.

"No, not really, I guess. It just seems like yesterday that you were nagging." Ash said sarcasticly and they stepped into a train heading for Furgonson.

"Yay! I get to rest my feet!" Cried May in her happy [annoying] way. Max, Tracey and Brock had already sunken deep into a conversation about the great wonders of rare Pokemon. May started to dose off then began to snore while Ash gazed out the window,

*Did she forgive me?*
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Sitting under a huge oak tree by the side of the train station, a cloaked girl sat, watching the trains come and leave.
*Will he come?*
She felt on her pointer finger. Without looking she could feel it was still there.
the train station clock tower strummed four.
"He's not coming, is he? I knew he hadn't forgiven himself. He doesn't want to face me ever again... But..." She said looking at her finger,
"Maybe the trains just late."
But despite what she thought, she had to leave. She walked to the train hand and gave him a letter for Ash.
"Give this to Ash Ketchum. He's looks about fourteen, he's tan and when he's not wearing his cap, he has hat head."
She walked away and then opened her cloak,
"Number 100! I choose you!"
A giant Ninetails emerged.
"Hello Perogi. I'm sorry that I have to ride you today, But I have to use you-know-who for the competitions today."
Misty got on the Ninetails and rode away.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
"Last stop. Furgonson town. Everibody off."
May snapped out of sleep to find the four boys exiting the train car.
The clock tower at the train station struck five o'clock.
"Is there a Mr. Ketchum here? I have a letter for an Ash Ketchum!"
Ash took the letter and opened it,

Ash, by what I have figured, If you are reading this letter, you have taken the four o'clock, or a later, train. But, If you have, you've already missed my first diving performance. You remember how much I love diving competitions, right? Anyhow, I'm sure May will be in the contest at six. I will be competing also, and if that make's you uncomfortible, you don't have to come, but I hope you'll come.

"Who's this from, Ash?" Asked may, snaching the note and reading it before Ash could grab it back,
"Hm, Ash, It from your girlfriend? OOH! It says she really wants you to come to a contest at- SIX O'CLOCK! COMPETITION! Hey, cool. She mentions me in here... I'm sure MAY will be in the contest!"

"Where'd you get it was a she?"

"Only a girl writes like this, Ash. And you never really hear about boys who dive and have exceptional grammer! Well, let's go! I have to enter in the next ten minutes or I'll be banned from the competition!"
May hurried the four boys along to the arena. Here we are! You guys get seats! Wish me luck!" She pulled Ash back while the others were leaving,

"Look, Ash, I know who wrote the letter to you and I'll be looking for her. And I know you will be looking too."

Then she shoved him along and went to enter.

Chapter 2

"The competition will now begin! We have 12 reigning competitors We're going to switch the contest around a little and put the battles first then the 'showing!' First match will be between May and Jessura!"

"Go, Beautifly!" Cried May as she released her bug Pokemon from it's Pokeball.
"Go Dustox!" said Jessura, seeming nervous.

"Use Silverwind!" ;267;

Um... Dustox... use... ;269;

But by that time Dustox was already unconcious.

"You stupid little twerp!"

"You're Jessie! Beautifly! Use silverwind at full power on Jessie and Dustox!"

"I'm not going to let you little kid win that easily!" Yelled Jessie as she called out Seviper,
"Get her, Seviper!" Seviper started to tackle May.

"Beautifly! Use..." Before she could instruct Beautifly Seviper was wrapped around her.

"Use Bind Seviper!" Seviper tightened.

Jessie turned to the crowd (including a whole fleet of Officer Jennys)
"If you come any closer, my Seviper will...." She was hit from ebhind by a humongous gust of silverwind and she, along with Dustox and Seviper were blown into the air. May heaved in new breathes of air.

"I'll get you TWEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEERRRRRRRRRRRPPPPPPPSSSSS !" Cried Jessie and she sored through the open arena roof and out of sight.

*I wonder where James and Meowth are... O well.* Dismissed May.

"Um... This match will be considered a forefit. May wins round one. Next round will be between a late entry, Tracey Sketchit and... Madam Mystery!"

May was still on the field as Tracey entered,

"Tracey! I didn't know you were competing!"

"I figured that since you were into it, maybe I have a chance."

Then May went backstage.

"Go, Merril!" Said Tracey, revealing his adorible Merril.

"Go, Ash!" Cried the hooded lady. Ash (the human) nearly jumped out of his seat. Madam Mystery opened her cape and cried,
"number ten, I choose you!" A Beam came forward and then revealed a black Ninetails. Black?

The whole crowd "oohed" and "awwwwed" at the sleek black figure.

"Uh... Merril, use water gun..."
Merril shot a water gun.

"I'm sorry If my Ashy starteled you, but no need to worry, I'll make this battle short." Said the lady, her eyes flashing,
"Mr Announcer, sir, may I please use my own moves that I taught him?"

"Yes, of course" Said the voice on the loud speaker.

"Alright! Here we go! Ash! Use Aqua Aurora Beam!"

The black Ninetails opened its mouth and a bright beam exploded out of it's mouth. It knocked Merril back at lease thirty feet.

"Use quick attack Merril!"
The tiny Pokemon ran at the Ninetails and bounced off and fainted out of exaustion. The Ninetails was uneffected.

"This Match is over! Madam Mystery Takes the round straight!"

"Thank you."

Tracey was in shock,
"But... a Ninetails can't use water attacks! I had the advantage."

"I'll reveal this secret. My Pokemon were around before your grandparents were born."
And she walked away.

There were six more matches that were pretty darn boring.

"Since there are four competitors left, we will now have a quick break. The finalists are Madam Mystery, May, Fergio and Balvabor. Rest your Pokemon, and then be ready to show them in ten minutes."

"Hey!" Cried May running up to Ash.
"I still haven't seen this girl in the letter."
Ash just walked away.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Meanwhile, Madam Mystery called back her Ninetails.
"Ash, number ten, you did good. Now, return and have a rest." She opened her cape,
"Return!" And "Ash" was returned.
The Madam started to leave,
"Madam! Madam Mystery! Wait!" May ran up to her,
"You were so awesome! Your Ninetails is so beautiful! How on earth did you get it to be black?"
"May, Ash is over two hundred years old. It lived in the time when Pokemon ruled. It ruled along with one of my other Ninetails, Mis... Never mind..."
"Mis, what?"
"Nothing! I must go and get ready to show... Oh, by the way May, for your own good, you better reread the rules. In this competition, for showing, you show two Pokemon." And then she left. ;038;

I liked it! It is kind of mistery but I think I know who is 'Madam Mistery'. I wonder what Ash did to Misty that he can't forgive himself. I guess I'll have to wait. Good work

You're a great writer Mysteria Pearl!

I love the idea of the two ninetails being named Ash and Misty. And yea, I'm also really curious about what happened between Ash and Misty.
Can't wait to read the rest! :D

Thank you! I'm so sorry I haven't been on in awhile to write more chapters, but I've been away and stuff. My best bud is over right now so momentarilly I don't have time to write more but I'll be on later!
;147; ;175;

Alrighty! I'm back! You asked for it! I'm totally inspired! I'm totally pumped! I totally... lost it.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Continued
"All competitors, please check in with Nurse Joy. After picking your two pokemon that you will use, leave your rest with Joy Jr. Thank you and be ready to compete in the staging rehearsal waiting room. Once again, Thank you." Crackled the loud speaker.

"Two Pokemon huh? I..."

"What do you mean I have to check in all my Pokemon! I have a note saying here, from your employer, Mr. Banks, that I can keep them with me."

May turned. the masked Madam Mystery was at the Pokemon check in desk.

"Well, mam, I'm very sorry but my mother told me that..."

Madam Mystery handed Joy Jr. the note and Joy read it over,

"well... this is his signature... and as long as you don't use your Pokemon... well..."

"You do understand, Ms. Joy, that I have two hundred Ninetails plus my other pokemon under this cape, am I correct?"

"Well.... Well.... I suppose you can bring them onto the field, but please don't cause any trouble! If you do, you'll get me fired and my mother will ground me for monthes!"

"Don't worry. I promise that my other precious ones will not be of any harm to you or me." Then, without another word to the nurse, she turned and walked over to May,

"Remember, May, unlike the regular competitions where the second phase is where the strongest wins, here the second phase means the most beautiful and best bred will come out victorious." And she walked away to the preperation room.

May raised an eyebrow,
*she's wierd.* and went to register her Pokemon with Nurse (Jr.) Joy.

"How many pokemon are you going to leave?"

"I'm leaving my Torchick and my Bulbasaur!" bubled May.

"Uh huh. And what two Pokemon are you going to use in the competition?"

"My Skiddy and my Beautifly!"
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
*I don't care if she wants to see me... I can't face her! I... alright, I don't have an excuse this time, but... I have to* Ash thought. Somehow, when he got up and left the arena during the break, he had ended up under a huge oak tree. Faintly, across the hill a loud buzzer rang.
"Shoot! The competition! I.... I'm going!" He blurted out to nobody in paticular and ran off.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Somewhere farr across the arena, a hooded woman called,
I choose you! Ash! Number ten! Number two hundred and four! I choose you! Come out Draga!" She opened her cloak, lined with Pokeballs and two opened to reveal... her slender black Ninetails and a sleek Dragonaire.

An interesting story, to say the least.

I'll get the bad news out of the way first: several parts of the fic aren't very believable. Most of that will improve with practice, but there are a few things that stand out like a sore thumb. Numero uno: the use of fan-based attacks. I recommend avoiding this, for many readers it keeps them from taking the fic seriously. Jessie's appearance was also unimpressive, there was no point to it, and her being recognized instantly with only a two-word phrase directed at her was very out-of-character. Not that I don't appreciate having Team Rocket disposed of in the early going, but when someone sees through their disguise, there should probably be at least a little more dialogue.

Oh, and you misspelled "Ketchum" and "grammar." Normally I don't pay attention to spelling errors (nobody's perfect), but those two stood out for some reason.

Don't let me discourage you, though! The story has me snagged, I'm itching to know what's on Ash's mind that he needs forgiveness for, and it was ever-so-cute to see May teasing him over the whole thing. The black Ninetails was pretty cool, too, it's nice seeing an occassional Pokemon that stands out from the norm.

Speaking of which, I do hope Ninetails has some sort of backstory behind it. It'd be a little weird for a 2000-year-old Pokemon to just show up with "Madam Mystery" I'll eat my hat if that's not Misty (provided someone supplies lots of ketchup) without some explanation as to how. Ah well, you're the writer here, not me. Knock 'em dead, fellow shipper! Overall, this looks like the beginning of a good fic, and I'm itching to read more! =D

Thank you very much for the supporting and constructive criticizem. I was kind of rushed that day and so I didnt have time to recheck, but first thing tomorrow, I'll get right on and keep writing.
But don't worry (hint hint) Jessie won't have been in that first part for no reason and tomorrow I'll go back and have her gloat more :D:D Two, tons of fanfics put different or made up kinds of attacks in and I've got a few more itching up my sleeve "AHHH That itches!!!!!!!!"
And yes, all Madam Mystery's Pokemon (I accidentally almoast put her real name in there :D) have some sort of background. And did I say that her Pokemon were 2,000 years old? If I did, oops. I was probably tired. But If I didn't I just remember saying that they were older than Tracey's grandparents. I never said anyithing about greatgreat (etc) grandparents. And, don't worry :D if you're wrong about the identity of Madam Mystery, and Im not saying you are or not, I have lotts of ketchup!

Chapter 3
"Come on out Beautifly! I choose you, Skiddy!" Called May as she kneeled down to their size.
"How are ya, Skiddy?" Skiddy mewed.
"Ya... You two are gonna compete for me! How does that sound?" Beautifly twirled around in the air and Skiddy chased it's tail.
"Yay!" May jumpe up in the air in her signature pose,
"Today, we're going to win and I'm getting my next ribbion!"

"May, please report to the stage. I repeat, please report to the stage. Showing will start in three minutes. I repeat three minutes."

After "calmly" yelling and shouting at someone in a dizzy panic, May finally got directions and hurried to the stage, accompianed by her Beautifly and Skiddy.

"... I'm Charlotte and once our final contestant gets here we can..."

"I'm Here!!!!!" Cried May as she burst through the stadium entrance.

"Good! You're finally here! I'm Charllotte, your hostess and I'll be judging you four along with Nurse Joy Sr. and the eight time world champion, Jonpaire Grestione. The order you'll be showing in is Hana Can will be preforming first with her Bayleaf and her Treeko. Then will came Fierria and her Magmar and Charmander. May will be after Fierria with your..." She checked her list,
"May, you'll be using your Beautifly and Skiddy, right?"

"Right!"

"Alrighty, May will be after Fierria using her Beautifly and Skiddy. Then, Madam Mystery will be preforming with her... Hey... This is odd... It seems Nurse Joy Jr. didn't record the Pokemon you will use..."

"I am sure that was just a coincidence. I have them here with me." Charllotte looked down at the snakey-looking Pokemon and the fox.

"So I suppose that means you'll be using your Dragionaire and your Ninetails?"

"You are correct."

"Fine. Madam Mystery will be using her Dragonaire and Ninetails. Ok. We've go thirty seconds left before we open the doors to the public so do your best!"

The competitors lined up by the stands in the order they would show.

"I'm May!" Said May as she outstretched her hand to Fierria.

"I've heard. You were the one that was late." And Fierria turned away.

Then Nurse Joy opened the stadium doors and a huge crowd slowly flooded in. May searched for her friends and finnaly spotted them... all but Ash. She saw Brock and Max, waving like crazy men and Trcey brooding next to them. But as soon as Trcey saw the eight beautiful Pokemon that were about to preform, he quickly snapped out of it and began sketching. But May still couldn't find Ash. May finally spotted him, in the first row.

"Up first we have Hana Chan!"

Hana shyly took the stage with her Bayleaf and treeko. She stood in the center of the stage with her Pokemon on either side of her about thirty feet away.

"Baylea! Treeky! Use Razor Leaf!" Within Seconds Hana Chan was encircled by thousands of leaves ripping through the air, but not touching her. She just stood there, looking a bit afraid to even move or command her Pokemon further.

"S....St... STOP!" Hana cried when a sharp leaf got dangerously close to her face. The leaves dropped and her Pokemon just stood there, looking bewieldered. The crowd clapped sypatheticly.

"Hanna, come up to the waiting stand while we figure out your overall score." Said Nurse Joy.

"Yes, Ma'am." Hanna sauntered over to the area and sat down, cuddling her Pokemon. The judges finally figured the scores.

"Well, your score is fifteen out of thirty." The crowd booed at the judges score.

Fierria took the stage with her Magmar and her Charmander. Her performance was simply awful. She tried to have her pokemon hit targets with magma and flame throwers but ended up scorching up the wall. The judges had to disqualify her for not being prepared for that phase.

"Next up, May! One of our reigning champions!"

May edged up to the stage,

"Beautifly, use Silverwind! Skiddy use Iron tail!" Beautifly erupted with a silver glow and Skiddy crashed into plates that May through into the air. The crowd was bombarded with a million sparkles. The crowd burst into applause.

"Very good! Good Job May!" Yelled Charlotte.

"Very nice." said Nurse Joy quietly. Jonpaire stayed silent.

"You may step over to the waiting stand with Hana while we figure your score." May skipped ver to the stand with Beautifly and Skiddy.

"Your score is twenty-eight out of thirty!"

"YAY!!!!!!!!" May did a little dance while the crowd applaused. all but Ash. he was suspecting the sky as if he were waiting for somthing or someone.

Then it was Madam Mystery's turn.

Madam Mystery gracefully glided onstage on Draga (the Dragonaire) with "Ash" prancing in beside her. She got off of Draga and then stood in the middle of the field. She snapped her left hand's fingers. The black Ninetail started to glow and Madam Mystery in a similar way. Then she began to float and slowly spin. She snapped again. This time her Dragonire started to charge up.

"Draga! Use Aurora Beam!" Draga's mouth open and out exploded a spectacular array of lights. Everione in the stadium was in awe as Madam Mystery was encircled by the swiveling lights.

"Ash! Use Flame Thrower!" All eyes turned to the Ninetails who, at that moment let out a huge burst of flame that was elegantly added to Madam Mystery's encirclement. As soon as Madam Mystery had completed the time assigned, she put up her hand and slowly Aurora beam and Flame Thrower faded away as she floated safely to the floor and took a bow.

The audience exploded into applause.

"Excellent!" Cried Nurse Joy.

"Wonderful!" Yelled Charlotte.

"Exceeding impressive." mumbeled Jonpaire.

"You may procede to the waiting stage! On second thought, you girls wait at the placing podium!" May and hana stepped down and joined Madam Mystery by the podiums along with their Pokemon (of course).

"Madam Mystery, we've tallied your points and in total, Madam, you have twenty nine points! The highest score making you our champion and winner! Great job! You may take your place as the top of the podium!"

Madam Mystery smiled and climbed up to the top with May and Hana slumping behind.

"Before we award you this ribbon, will you please remove your mask and reveal to us who you really are?"

The whole crowd was at the edge of their seats.

"But of course." Said Madam Mystery as she reached up to her hood and mask.

"uh uh uh! I don't think so! So prepare for trouble!" said a voice from high above.

"And make that double." said a certain purple haired man as he stood up in the crowd.

*Not them! Not now!* Thought "Madam Mystery"

"To Protect the world from Devestaion!"

"To defy all people within our nation!"

"To Denounce the evil of truth and love!"

"To extend our reach to the stars above!"

"Jessie!"

"James."

"Team Rocket blast off at the speed of light!"

"Surrender now or prepare to fight."

"Wabba..." out of the blue, Meowth clobbered him with a hammer,

"He means, thats wite!"

By then Ash, Brock, Max, May, Madam Mystery, Tracey, and Hana had all gethered at the center of the gym,

"Team Rocket!"

"Team who?" asked Hana.

A huge robot Beautifly (driven by Mewoth) lowered into the unroofed arena

"Hahaha! This time, we've got the advantage! We made a new and improved Beautifly robot!" Cackled Jessie as she and James were lifted to the robot cockpit.

"Get those Pokemon, Mewoth!"

"My pweasure! (pleasure)

"Not if I can help it! Go Bulbas... SHOOT! I left almost all my Pokemon with Joy jr!" Cried May.

"So did I!" Yelled Hana chan.

"Oh-hahaha! And I cleaned out Joy Jr!" Laughed James in his rich boy way.

"Mewoth! quick! grab the ribbon case and let's get out of here!" Shouted Jessie.

"No!" Madam Mystery grabbed the case and jumped out of the way of a netty string shot.

Madam Mystery quickly opened her cape,

"I choose you numbers..."

"Get her!"

Before she knew it Madam Mystery was being hauled up toward the sky by a giant iron claw.

"No! help! Ash! Take this!" Cried Madam Mystery as she threw the ribbon case to (the human) Ash.

"James! Mewoth! Drop her! Get that ribbon!" The giant claw snapped open and dropped Madam Mystery from a good fifty feet.

"brock! Think fast!" Yelled Ash as he threw Brock the case and ran to where Madam Mystery was falling.

"Ahhhhhhhhh!" Cried Madam Mystery as she was released from the claw.
Ash ran and then dived onto the cement, catching her.

"Oh, Ash!" She cried. Her hood and mask fell back....

Thank you for posting because now I can start a new chapter on a new reply! anyway, please look before your message because I just made the last chapter longer. And don't worry I guess you won't have to eat your hat after all!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Chapter 4
(like I said before)

It was Misty.

"It's the original Twerpette! What's this?" Asked Jessie as she saw Misty's cloak, now laying open, lined with hundreds of Pokeballs.

"Never mind that ribbon! Get her! She's got a cape lined with Pokeballs!" Yelled Jessie.

"Make up your mind!" James yelled back as he took controll and outstretched the claw towards Misty (Aka Madam Mystery)

"Get out of the way!" Yelled Misty as she shoved Ash out of the way of the claw. The claw griped her and without another word, floated away.

"Misty!" Cried Ash after the robot.

"Ash... I have the ribbon..."

"Who cares! Give it to May to hold onto! I need to go get Misty! Tracey! You come with me! Brock, max, May, you go get all of the Officer Jenny's and Nurse Joy's! C'mon Tracey!" Ash yelled as the others hurried off.

"How do we chase them, Ash? Neither of use has any Pokemon we can ride!"

Ash turned to Misty's Dragonaire and Ninetails,

"Draga, Ash, we need a ride." Tracey climbed up on Draga while... This sounds peculiar, Ash rode on Ash 0_o. And they Flew off after Team Rocket and Misty.~~~~~~~~~~~
Sorry that was short for the moment but I'm going shopping with my friends now! I'll be back on tomorrow!
Hahaha. I'm back. Anxious, wern't you? Admit it! victory!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

"What if we can't get her back?" Asked Tracey, still scanning the skies.

"That isn't an option. I have to apalogise to her for somthing. And plus, has there ever been a time that in the end, we didn't defeat Team Rocket?"

Tracey thought,
"Well, no. But heck, how would I know. I've been gone for a year. What I've read from your diary..."

Ash glared at him.

"Heheh... never mind."
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
"Nurse Joy! You have to help us!" Cried May, as she entered her fifth Pokemon center.

"Calm down. What's wrong?"

"My friends been kidnapped!"

"I see. I'm very sorry, but I cant leave my post. I have sick Pokemon here, and at any second, someone might come in with a Pokemon on the brink and need my immeadite attention."

May left the pokemon centre and felt in her fannypack.

"Yup. Still there." All two of them. The only two Nurse's May had gotten help from were Nurse Joy, from the competition counter, and her daughter, Joy Jr.

"I hope the other guys are having ebtter luck with the officer Jenny's."

"Hello May."

"AHHHHHHHHHHHH!" May cried as she comicly jumped to a tree limb.

May looked down at the green haired boy with his Masquerade.

"Oh... Drew! I thought... I thought..."

"Never mind what you thought. It's what you said that intrests me. What all this about the "other guys" and Officer Jennys?" He looked up into the tree, seeing Mays perdicament. He sighed,
"Here, May. Jump. I'll catch you." He said stepping forward and extending his arms.

Mays heart skipped a beat,
"Alright..." She swung her legs onto the same side of the tree and started to slowly lower herself down and then, when she ran out of branch, she dropped. Right into Drew's arms. She knew she must be beat red.

"Was that so bad?" Drew asked as he set her down.

"No, it wasn't." But she was really thinking *THAT WAS GRRRREAT!*

"So now answer me."

"Ok. Well, Ash has been feeling pretty down lately and then he got a note from a girl, Misty, that he... we traveled with for a long time. We went to a contest and.... Hey! Why wern't you at the contest? I thought you'd be there for sure!"

"Just keep going. I'll answer your question when you're done."

"Alrighty! Well, I was in this contest with this lady, Madam Mystery, and just as she won..."

"You mean you lost?"

"Yeah. Stupid huh?"

"No, I loose them all the time, mostly to you." He said smiling.

"Anyway, She had just won and was being given the ribbon when Team Rocket, Jessie, James, and Mewoth, showed up and tried to steal the ribbon. But Madam Mystery got there first and threw it to Ash. She was picked up by Team Rocket, Ash threw the case to Brock, who threw it to me..."

"You have the ribbon?"

"Yes! I'll show you after I'm done! So, Brock threw it to me and I hid it in my hip-pack and Ash caught Madam Mystery who turned out to be Misty, the girl Ash had gotten notes from and who he had been avoiding and somehow it got so mixed up that Team Rocket stole most of our Pokemon and now, Ash and Tracey are going to Misty's rescue while Brock and Max get Officer Jenny's to arrest Team Rocket and I've got to get Nurse Joy's but none of them will help me!"

Drew put up his hand for her to stop.

"Shhhh. Do you hear that? It's a robot/plane's engine. Its coming closer and..." He listened for a few more seconds,
"It's going that way. The Best thing we can do for your friends is follow it. Ash and Tracey might need our help and I dont think that you'll get any more Joys.
~~~~~~
"AHHH! Cupid got me again! Officer Jenny! You can put me in jail any time!"

"C'mon, Brock! The others might need Our help!" said Max, yanking at Brocks pant leg to the other side of the room. Then he went back to the front desk,

"Please Officer jenny! I need your help!"

"What's the matter, cutie?" She said as she rumpled Max's hair. Brock crouched down and turned blue in the corner.

"Well, ma'am, my friend's been kidnapped! I need someone to help!"

"Hold on! We can only spare one officer today, and that's me. All the rest are at the stadium searching for the rubble looking for any people who may be trapped or hurt..." her radio crackled.

"... Jenny1 to....ny4... got another...."

"Anyhow, I'm not number four and I've just got desk duty for the night so I suppose I could help you, sweetie." brock grew smaller in the corner

Max whispered into her ear,

"Ok. Um, Brock?" Max nodded,
"Honey... I'll help both of you." Brock returned to normal size and un-blued.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

"HAHAHAHA! How's the flight, Twerpette?" Called Jessie tauntingly from above. Misty scoweled,

"Im fine, but your plan in up in the blue! You can't take my Pokemon! I have all of them in lockballs. They wont open unless I state who they are what number and it only opens to two voices! Mine and anothers!"

Jessie spat off the side of the balcony in disgust,
"You mean unless we find that other?"

"I'll tell you their name over my dead body!"

"Clever isn't she."

"I don't know Jessie. Dont you think you're being kind of cruel? Shouldn't we even keep her captive on board?"

"No. But she better get those Pokeballs open for us! After all, I do deserve them, In fact, I deserve that ribbon too but with May, comes the ribbon and we all know that dunce, she'll step right into our trap. Because I do deserve all that, I am the most Beautiful woman ever with the most beautiful Pokemon, right?"

crickets chirped.

Everione face-faulted.

"Of course Jessie! You are in charge here!" Cried James.

"ya, I jwust gwet to dwive!"

"You disgust me" Said Misty. still in the iron claw.

"Misty!"

"Misty!" She looked down. About fifteen feet under them and twenty feet behind were Ash and Tracey.

"Ash! Tracey!" Misty Cried.

"Isn't this touching. But come one yard closer and Wheezing uses Poison Gas on her!" Threatened Jessie.

"Ash! Don't come any closer! Or they'll poison you too!" Called Misty.

"Oops. too late, Misty! Wheezing! Use Poison Gas!" Jessie yelled.

"Jessie don't do it!" Protested James and Mewoth.

"Wheezing whee ZING!" The wheezing let out tons of acid air right at Misty. Her body started to loosen.

"We don't need the twerpet, we've got your Pokemon and.."

"Thats it!" Yelled Ash,
"Hurting Misty is enough! Ninetails! Use..."

"No, no Twerp!" Or your Pokemon and Misty get it!" Ash hovered closer.

"Pikachu." said sleepy little Pikachu, poking his head out of Ash's backpack.

"Pikachu! Get down!"

"Ahh! Your Pikachu!" In seconds another giant claw reached down and snatched Pikachu.

"Pikachu! Chu! Pika! Pikka...." Cried the mouse Pokemon as it tried to shock Team Rocket with a thunderbolt but just wore itself out on the electricity-proof claw.

"Here Twerp!" the claw holding Misty suddenly started to open. Ash looked down... way down. It was more than fifteen feet down from where he was. A fall, alone, could break a persons neck, not to mention the + fifteen feet up to Misty from where he was. It was a thirty foot drop.

It dropped Misty.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
This is gettin' good! Ok, ok, I'll keep going to get the suspense off your shoulders.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

"Misty!" Ash cried.
"Ninetails! Go catch Misty!" Ninetails swooped ahead the fifteen feet so they were directly under Misty. Ash held out his arms.

Misty flew into him with such force that it knocked Ash right off of Ash 0_o. Far down to the ground. Tracey was watching in horror as he relized he couldn't help. Ash held Misty's limp body in his arms as he fell.

Please understand that this all happened in a matter of seconds.

They crashed into the ground. For a few seconds bot Misty and Ash regained conciousness. For the first time in quite a long while, Misty felt safe. She was in Ash's arms.

"I'm sorry Misty... for..." Ash sighed and fell back unconcious.
"Thats ok, Ash..." And Misty fell unconcious too.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

"Ash! Misty!" Yelled Tracey, looking down. Then he looked up at Team Rocket.

"You Jerks!" He started to decend.

"That's our cue to leave! Ta-Ta!" Team Rocket flew away, cackeling all the way.

Tracey landed on the ground next to the two with Ninetails and Dragonaire.

"Misty?... Ash?..." Asked Tracey quietly.

Of course there was no reply.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

"I cant go any further..." panted May,
"We've... been running for like a half hour..."

"Yeah. I suppose you must be tired. But hasn't traveling with Ash, Brock, Tracey and Max gotten you in shape to run alot? Well... I mean... We can stop if we can't find them in the next five minutes..."

"Thanks."
Unknown to them, Misty Tracey and Ash were less than thirty feet away. They only realized it as they crashed throught= the underbrush and almost tripped over Tracey.

"Tracey!"

"May! Drew? where's the Nurses?"

"They're coming." May poked her head around Tracey and saw Ash and Misty,

"Whats the story?"

"Well, in short, Team Rocket stole Pikachu from Ash and dropped Misty. Ash caught her but fell off Misty's Ninetails. I think he hit his head. Anywayse, they're both unconcious and while they're like that, I'm taking a chance and drawing them," He grinned,
"It's good, isn't it?"

"Sure Tracey, whatever you say."
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
"Mother! Come on! Ash and Tracey might need our help saving the world or somthing!" cried a certain blue-haired nurse in training.

"Joy! I'm suprised by you! You know that our number one job is to help Pokemon! Joy, Team Rocket stole most of our friends Pokemon and they might be hurt! We need to bring medicine! Wait outside with Cousin Jenny on her motorcycle. I'm taking the hospital motorscooter with our supplies. Go on, I know you enjoy riding with Jenny."

Joy Jr. slumped outside.

"What's wrong, Joy?" Asked Officer Jenny.

"Well, Ms. Jenny, mom is being so paranoid! All she ever thinks about is Pokemon and being the best Nurse Joy ever! She never thinks about the wellfare of people! I swear! When I grow up I'm going to change my fate and be the first Joy in the whole Joy family to be a nurse for humans! After all, all Nurse Joys in our family have pink hair and they don't even think of me as a Joy!"

"Hold on! cool off!" Joy jr. steamed off.

"Now get on." said Officer Jenny as she picked up the eight year old and handed her a helmit,
"put this on and then we'll go." With a little help, Joy finnaly got the helmit on and Jenny started for the forest.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
"She's just too anxious to grow up." Nurse Joy sighed in the doorway, watching her best friend and her daughter ride away to try and find Ash, Misty, Tracey, Max, and May.

*I should never have brought Joy to Nurse Mary's human medics lab. now she thinks nothing of Pokemon. First it was those medical books. Then it was medical classes. Then it was "just a year with Nurse Mary."* She sighed,
*I don't know. My sisters all say she doesn't look like a Joy so she can't be a Joy. Maybe they're right. Or maybe she just needs more time with herself... or Pokemon... she almost seems afraid of them. I better get this packing done...*
Nurse Joy finished her packing within minutes and then called out her Chansey,
"Chance, We're going to go help some Pokemon. Help me carry these bags out to the scooter."
"Chansey!"
Once the motor scooter was loaded and Nurse Joy called Chansey back, Nurse Joy got on and drove off to first find Brock and Max and then to find the others.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

*Nice boy, Max. His friend's a bit wierd though. Hmmm... O well... glad they tipped us. I might get a medal for this... if we succede. Of course we will! What am i thinking? The Jenny Patroll never loses!*

"We won't lose!"

"Huh?"

"What? Did I say that out loud? Sorry Joy."

"No apology needed. It's funny to hear you mumbeling about the Patroll." laughed Joy.

"Yes... well... keep an eye out for our friends."
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

"Max, are you sure you know how to drive one of these?" Asked Brock and he uneasily climbed onto a motor scooter at U-RENT-A-SCOOTER.

"Yup. May asked for lessons about how to make her Pokemon more beautiful and I chose motor scooter lessons!"

Max started the scooter and headed the way that Team Rocket went.
"AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!" Yelled Brock as the scooter reached fifty miles per hour,

"HAHAHA! This is great! May should see me now!" Cried Max.

"GET ME OFF OF HERE!!!!"
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
"Wheeeee!" Joy Jr. was having a great time behind Officer Jenny,

"This is great! Mom never drives this fast!"

"Really? I was afraid you'd be bored. I usually go at least eighty...."

"Cousin Jenny! There they are! They were just back there!"

"Hold on!" Called Officer Jenny as she swerved around to come up right in the same clearing as May, Tracey, Drew, Misty, and Ash.

"There you are." said officer Jenny.

"Ya, we've been looking all over for you!" Cooed Joy.

"Hey...," Tracey looked around,
"I thought Brock and Max were with you, Officer Jenny. Where are they?"

"Max said somthing about renting a motor scooter and meeting us here."

"Oh no!" May cried May, soap-opera like,
"max took lessons on driving scooters, but he's soooooooo fragile that... I'm afraid, he might not make it."

Seconds after the soap, Max and Brock crahsed throught the trees. Brock immeaditly jumped off and hugged a tree.

"I am never let Max drive me around AGAIN!"

"That was awesome!" cried Max, running over to May and hugging her tight,

"Did ya' see me? Did ya!"

"That was great Max..."

"Now that that's settled, I'm going to go and try to find Nurse Joy and Team Rocket," She sighed,
"I'm sure my cousin is just puttering around somewhere."

good fan fic^^

Thank you very much!

BTW is that picture of that little blonde girl named Kikki Benjiman in English? From Mew Mew Power / Tokyo Mew Mew Power? I secretly love that show. Here's a little FYI about the next chapter. Ok. So I'm not going to explain word for word but you people are smart so I'm sure you'll catch on. It's kind of a delusional dream sequence. It's between... well... you'll figure it out.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Chapter 5
Misty looked up into the stormy sky... stormy sky?

"Jiggly PUFF!"

*Wait! This is... just like that day... The day before...*

"Misty!" Yelled someone from behind her.

"Ash?" She turned and looked at him,

"Ash! What's going on? Why is..."

"No time! Misty! A tornado's comng!" He grabbed her by the hand, not the wrist,

"C'mon, Mist! Grab Jigglypuff and let's go!" She grabbed Jigglypuff and Ash pulled her into a cellar.

"Ash! What's going on!? Where's..." A huge roaring filled her ears. She looked down. No cape. Just her old Hoen traveling clothes.

Glass shattered behind Ash and the roaring wind was getting louder. Ash ran at her, grabbed her and held her, kneeling in the cormer of the shelter. He held her tight and took her hand. And she felt his hand in her own.

*No gloves*

"Ash! What's happening? Where are we?"

"We're in..." Somthing big and mad of glass shattered behind her. Misty could feel the spray of the glass. She looked up into Ash's face,

"Mist, i'll protect you... I-" his face was hit and cut with a piece of glass and then his hand. Then a large pice sliced at Misty's leg.

*This isn't how it happened! Not at all!* The thought masde her heart leap to her throat as a line of red appeared across his face.

For a second his already injured hand reached up to Misty's face and brushed away a tear. She didn't even know she was crying. Then she looked up. The terracotta roof that had been sheltering them was suddenly torn away and Ash was blown away from her and up into the swirling tornado.

"Ash! No!" And then the tornado slowly slipped away.

*No, no! I remember exactally how this happened! He only injured his hand by saving me! What's going on? We got away fine and then Jigglypuff sang and we... wait...*

"Jigglypuff!" She called, standing up in the wreckage...

Then everything went black.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Ash looked around in darkness.

"Misty? Mist? Where are you?"

Just a few seconds ago he had been falling with Misty. The last thing he remembered was being on the ground, with an emmense pain in the back of his head, looking up into Misty's face and trying to apologise to her for...

Suddenly, the black aound him turned into a gym... make that Cereulean City gym.

"O, no. No... Not this day, any day but this!"

Before him materialized a kneeling, crying Misty holding Staryu.

Ash ran up to her and started to put his hand on her shoulder,
"Misty! What's going on... why is-"

"Shut up!" She took a shaky breath,
"Go away! You! You- Leave me alone!" She said shoving him away.

*What's going on here! This is all wrong! I... I...*

"I hate you! Leave now and... and never return! I don't ever want to see you again!" Ash backed up scared.

"I told you, Misty," said a voice from above. Ash looked up. It was Daisy, Lily and Violet,
"No, We told you! He's worth nothing. You lost to him and he doesn't care. You're just like Dad, weak. And now we're gonna do to you what we did to him!" Then the Spectacular sisters dissapeared and so did Cereulean City. He was left in darkness with a softly crying Misty. And then she said the right words. The words she really had spoken,

"Ash..."

"Misty, I'm sorry... I never meant to..."

"I know, Ash... and... I forgive you..."

And then she dissapeared too.

"Misty? Where are you?"
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
"Ash! Are you there?" Misty called peering into the darkness

"Mist? Is that you?" Ash called back. Misty turned around. She could see him plain as day and "ditto" for him. (That was terrible, wasn't it)

"Ash? is it really you this time? What's happening? The last thing I remember is Team Rocket dropping me and you catching me... Then I was here and saw the most terrible re-enactment."

"So did I... Do you have any idea where we are?"


"No... i thought at first this was a dream... but now I think I'm holusinating."

"That makes two of us."

Then both of them dissapeared.

Thank you. Now, If you don't mind, I'm going to continue right here.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Continued
For the first time, after releasing the tree, Brock noticed Misty and Ash,
"Excuse my crude term but, Sweet dude."

Misty's eye lids fluttered. And so did Ash's. Finally, Misty opened her eyes.

*Why is everything spinning..." Finnaly, her eyes began to focus. She was on top of Ash with her hand on his chest and her head on his shoulder looking in his face. His arms were still loosely wrapped around her waist. Ash's eyes suddenly fell open. Everyone's attention snapped over to them. Ash removed his arms from around Misty's waist and Misty tiredly rolled off of him. Ash sat up. It was night time and their friends had built a camp around them.

"Ahh... My head hurts..." Said Ash, rubbing his head.

*Big bump but no blood...*

"Wow, Ash... I'm glad you finally came to. You two have been out cold for over an hour. You took quite a large fall," Said Tracey, helping Ash up. Ash looked back down at Misty. she had began to cough and was begining to look very pale. Joy Jr. Brock, Tracey, Ash, and Max assembled around her .

"Ash! What happened to her?" Asked Joy

"She was Poisoned by that evil Team Rocket losers!" Yelled Tracey before Ash could explain.

"Poison! Shoot! I left all of my supplies at home! In the Norm, I could handle this, but I'm short all of my medications! Mom was right," She hung her head,
"I should have been prepared... Well... Cousin Jenny said she was going to find mom, and she's been gone for awhile now, so she should be back soon... Right?"

"Yeah, Joy..." But Joy could tell that they were all disgusted... all but Ash, he was busy taking of his vest and wrapping it around Misty. Then he picked her up and sat down by one of the five large bonfires that Brock had set to keep evryone warm.
~~~~~~~~~~~~

"Can I see Misty's ribbon, May?" Asked Drew, at the farthest back camp fire.

"First you answer my question, Drew," Drew nodded,

"Okay. So why exactly wern't you in the competition?" Asked May

"Honestly, May, I wanted to watch instead of lose. I was cheering you on, though. Sorry you didn't win. But," he said smiling, "Next time I'm counting on you to do your best!"

May blushed at his heartfelt words,

"I'll be counting on you too." She took the silver and blue ribbon out of his case and sighed,

"This is the last season and If you and I both don't get at least twenty major ribbons we won't be able to compete in the Regionals. By the way, Drew, how many do you have so far?" She asked handing him the beautiful ribbon. He opened his vest and showed her the ribbons pinned inside. May counted the colorful bows,
"Holy cow! You already have sixteen ribbons?!" She was right. he had sixteen.

"Yeah... I was hoping to have more by now but there aren't many contests in the places and times where and when I go. So, May, how many do you have?"

May turned red and took out her case.

"Ten."
~~~~~~~~
"I am so stupid! How on earth could I have gotten so mad that I forgot to think!"

"You just have to think of what you're going to do," Said Tracey roasting a big marshmallow over the fire, "Then it's easy. When Professor Oak called me one and told me that he had found a rare new breed of goldeen that he wanted me to draw and look after, I almost didn't wait to hang up the phone!" He laughed, "I'll never do that again!"

"I suppose..." said Joy

"Yeah! when May said that Professor Maple had a Pokemon for me, I forgot to put on my shoes! My caterpie is so strong! Since May's been helping me, in the last six monthes, she's already gained two whole levels!"

"Only two levels in six monthes?" Asked Joy

"Yeah! Isn't May the best?"

"No, no. For you'r first Pokemon, Max, my mother told me that for the first four levels you alone should train it or it will continue to row slowly. And that's right out of the mouth of the wisest and oldest Nurse Joy in her generation!"

slowly a faint roar of motors materialized in the distance. Ash, still holding Misty in his arms, was the first to hear.

"Please let that be Officer Jenny with Nurse Joy and her medicens." Said Ash quietly as he looked down at Misty's paling face. He gently laid his hand on her cheek. It was ice cold. He took his hat off his head and put it on hers. Then he scooted closer to the warm fire.

"Mom!" Ash stood up with Misty still in in arms to see, in relief, Joy Jr. hugging her mother. Only after standing came a dizzy spell, but Ash dismissed it and shook his head.

"Mamma! Mamma! Do you have my medical equiptment? Do you Mamma?" Asked Joy hurridly pulling at her mother's sleeve.

"Yes, dear. But why do yo need them?"

Joy took a deep breaath,
"Well, Team Rocket, as you know, kidnapped Misty and then they poisoned her with a wheezing and then they dropped her. Ash caught her but fell to the ground and they were laying unconcious for like an hour! So, now Misty's weak andd slipping in and out of conciousness and is looking really bad. that's why." She breathed deeply and then grinned.

Chapter 6

Ash dizzily hobbled down to Nurse Joy and Jr. Joy.

"Ash! What's wrong?" Asked Joy Jr. as Ash swivled closer. He shook his head,

"I... I'm fine... just a little dizzy..." Tracey came behind him and held him straight. Joy Jr. Looked into his eyes,

"Ash, this isn't nothing! I think you might have a concussion! You almost just walked into the fire! Go sit down right now!" Tracey took Misty while Joy led Ash over to a big boulder. Joy felt all over Ash's head while Ash decribed how he felt.

"Well, it isn't permanant but you have to be in complete darkness for up to four hours or two hundred forty minutes. By then, the headache should be gone." She fumbled around in her medical box and pulled out a little red case of pills and made Ash eat two. Then she wrapped some tight bandages around his head, including the eyes, to block out the light.

"Hey, Max!" She called.

"Yeah? What is it Joy?" He asked hopping over to the junior nurse and Ash.

"Take Ash to his tent and make sure that no light gets to his eyes," Max nodded,
"And Ash," She said, turning to him.

"Yeah?"

"Under the bandages, keep your eyes closed. try not to fall asleep, and don't talk. Just daydream. We'll be checking back with you in case you become unconcious. Then We'd have to bring you all the way to the nearest hospital and i've figured that thats sixty miles away. Raise your hand when we come in if you're awake. Don't talk!"

"Any other instructions, mom?" He asked sarcasticly,
"And I know, no late movies and no friends over." he smirked.

"Max, just take Ash away." Said Joy. Max led Ash away to the tent.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Tracey took Ash's place by the fire with Misty, waiting for Joy Jr. to gather up all her supplies from her mother.
He looked down into her face.

*Why do I feel like this? I... I think I... have a crush on her.* He blushed and laid her against a tree. He piced up his brown drawing notebook and flipped to the page her had drawn earlier that day.
*How did Ash get got dang lucky?* Then he turned to Misty
*Well... I can dream... or draw!* He took Misty back in his arms and sat closer to the warm, blazing fire where the light and warmth were perfect. Then he began to draw. He drew what he had remembered, far back at the Cereulean gym, where Misty's sisters had Asked him to be the Prince for the Water Ballet. He had been in the water next to Misty, doing the last scene when he thought the crush striked. He drew himself and Misty with their hands together, gazing in each other's eyes surrounded by water Pokemon. He sighed,
*That was great. Maybe Daisy, Violet and Lily will let me do that again sometime*
"Uh, Tracey?" Joy popped out of nowhere from behind him, looking at his drawing.
"AHHHHH! DON'T DO THAT!"
"You like Misty? YOu know she's gonna kill you."
"For what?"
"Geez. You're just like a groupie. Drawing them you dummie! Misty and Ash and then..."
Tracey closed his notebook,
"You dare tell and I'll..."
"What? Attack me with your pencils... or no, wait, your markers?"
"If Jigglypuff can, so an I."
Joy sweatdropped,
"Heheh.. never mind then... Well, anyway hold out Misty's arm." Tracey did what she said. Joy took a needle, filled with a blue syruppy stuff, and injected it into Misty's arm and then put a band-aid over it.
"Hey, Tracey? Will you please put this blindfold on her and put her in that "medical" tent?"
"Yeah, sure," Said Tracey, taking the blindfold and putting it on Misty,
"By the way, Joy? Which tent is the "medical tent?" Joy pointed to the large red tent.
"And Tracey, If Ash's awake, tell him that if Misty gains conciousness, to tell her to stay silent.
Tracey picked up Misty and headed there. Upon entering, Tracey saw Ash on a floor mat.
"Ash?" Ash raised his hand.
"O, yeah. You're not supposed to talk." Tracey knelt down next to a mat and set Misty on it. He looked around. Seeing nobody else, other than Ash, he quickly kissed Misty on the cheek. Then he got up,
"Ash, you didn't hear that. And, oh, Joy told me that if Misty wakes up and starts talking to you, tell her not to talk until One of us checks in."
Ash put his thumb up
"Okay, then..." and he hurried out.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
"Hey May?" asked Drew.

"Yeah?"

"Have you ever really missed someone, but you're afraid that she... I mean they hate you?"

"Well," said May sleepily,
"I never really thought about it. Well... Yes... I felt that way about... you..." Drew's heart lept, but before he could say anything back, May had fallen asleep. Drew set her against his shoulder, took her hand, and thought about what had just happened.
*Could she?.... no.... well..."
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

"Ah! My vision of loveliness! You, who are prittier than a thousand sunsetts... OW! NOT THE EAR! NOT THE EAR!!!!!! OWWWWWWWWWWWW!!!!!!!!!!!!!" Cried Brock as Max pulled him away from Officer Jenny.

"Not today, Brock. Try again some other time." Joy cracked up.

"Well, if that's all setled, I can't sit around here any longer!" Cried Officer Jenny,

"I'm going after Team Rocket and you guys can twiddle your thumbs for all I care!" With that she jumped on her motor cycle and rode away.

"No! My love! Oh, well." siad Brock, shrinking and turning blue.

"Max? Joy, honey?" Nurse Joy Knelt down,
"Would you do a little favour for me?"

"Yes ma'am!"

"Sure mom!"

"Alright..." she hushed down to a whisper,
"Will you two take Brock and get some firewood... lotts and lotts of firewood?"

"SURE!" Max and Joy Jr. answered

"Okay," Nurse Joy stood and turned to Brock,
"Ahem... Brock? Could you please take my daughter and Max to go get some firewood. We're almost out."

"At your service, Nurse Joy!" Cried Brock, seemingly forgetting his recentist heart break,
"C'mon you two! Let's go get firewood!"

Max, Joy Jr. and Nurse Joy all sweatdropped (along with yours truly)

So, the trio set out to get firewood.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
"Ash!" Cried Misty Jerking awake and sitting up on the mat in the dark tent (with the blindfold still on)

"Misty? Are you ok?"

"Ash! What's going on? Where Are we?"

"You passed out again and Joy said I have a minor concussion. She said to lie down, and not talk until she, or her mom or whatever comes and gets us. So just lie down and relax." Misty lied back down.

"I'm glad you're here, Ash..."

"I'm just glad your okay." He reached out his hand, and even without his "sight" he took her hand. Misty's heart lept.

"Ash?"

"Yes?"

Misty smiled to herself,

"You're alot less dense then you were in Jhoto."

"Thanks." And he too smiled to himself.

"Hey! Tracey! Cpuld you please check and see if Mistys concious yet? Joy told me to check on tehm every once and awhile."

"Alright, Miss Nurse Joy!" Tracey ran to the tent and peeked inside,

"Ash? Misty? Are you guys awake.. uh... concious?" The two immeaditly let go of each others hands.

"Are they alright?" Called Nurse Joy from where she was busily sorting through her medical books.

"Yeah."

"Alrighty! I'll be right over!" She stood and stretched. Then urse Joy straightened her pink, poofy dress and skipped over to the medical tent.

She peeked inside. Ash was sitting crosslegged and Misty was just sitting up.

"How do you feel, Ash?" She said kneeling down and putting her hand on his bandaged forehead.

"Fine. I suppose next you'll hit me and ask me if that hurt." Tracey snickered as he sat down next to Misty.

"How about you?" Asked Nurse Joy, turning to Misty.

"Ditto here. I'me fine."

"Okay... um... next... Joy said to... um... remove your blindfold. Tracey, would you mind doing Misty's?"

Tracey perked up,
"Sure!" and with the utmost care, he carefully removed the bandages from around Misty's eyes while Nurse Joy attended to Ash's.

Misty blinked twice.
"I can see again!" She turned to Tracey. he was smiling from ear to ear. She hugged him,
"Thank you Tracey." It was just a friendly hug, mind you, but Tracey was about as red as Ash's costume of an apple (that he had to wear to tempt a snorelax in Jhoto)

By that time Ash had his blindfold off,
"Hey! What about me? I was the one who saved your life and all."

"But you said in the Orange Islands that you "don't do" hugs."

"i'll malke an acception..." She hugged him for a good ten seconds, but Ash, being "too brash" to blush, merely smiled

"Good," Tracey and Ash had forgotten Nurse Joy was still there, and jumped at the sound of her voice,
"Now I can go back to sorting and waiting for Brock, joy, and Max to get back with the firewood."
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
"Max, Brock, are we lost?" Asked Joy, timidly.

"Yup," They said in unison,
"Most deffinetly lost."

They had been lost for a good ten minutes.

"Are you sure?"

"Yup."

"Don't you guys have any flying Pokemon that could take a look for us?"

"Nope."

"Do I have to do everything myself!?" She cried in exasporation,

"I honestly don't get how Misty May and Ash got along with you for so long!" She reached into her little white purse,

"Come on out, ;165; Lady!" A little red Ladyba materialized.

"Lady! Ladyba! Ba!"

"Lady! Fly up and tell us which way the camp is!"

"Lady! Ba!" And the little Pokemon, with that, Flew up, over the trees.

"Can you see camp, Lady?"

"Ba! Ba! Ladyba!"

"Point which way!"

"Ba!" Ladyba pointed South.

"South it is!" Cried Max and the trio took off.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
May yawned and opened her eyes. With her still sleppy eyes she looked around. she was leaning on Drews shoulder. But what made her red was that drew had his right arm around the back of her waist and was holding her right hand. With his left hand, her was flipping through some notes.

"May? Are you awake?" Drew asked in a whisper.

May yawned a big yawn in response and pretended to just awaken. Just then was when she noticed that Drew's vest was draped around her.

"Drew... I'm glad I know you... that is... I mean...."

"Me too."

May stared into the fire,

"Isn't this place beautiful?"

"Yeah..." Drew blushed as May snuggled closer.

Sorry for taking me this long but I didn't have time to review it before. I'm in the middle of my tests so have to tried to study. I really liked that part of Ash(the human) with Ash (the pokemon) even though I got a little confused.

Now, what drew was thinking in this part of the fic. I think I know, Drew is in love with May


Hey May?" asked Drew.

"Yeah?"

"Have you ever really missed someone, but you're afraid that she... I mean they hate you?"

"Well," said May sleepily,
"I never really thought about it. Well... Yes... I felt that way about... you..." Drew's heart lept, but before he could say anything back, May had fallen asleep. Drew set her against his shoulder, took her hand, and thought about what had just happened.
*Could she?.... no.... well..."

I'll finish writting my review later. I have to do some work I haven't done for my final grade

I must admit, a well written fic!
Pokeshipping for life!
I am also a bit shocked that Tracey likes Misty. At least you're not having that traditional yet stupid May-and-Misty-fight-over-Ash thing. I like them both, and I hate seeing those two acting like babies sometimes. Overall, a good story!! Please continue!

Thank you both very much! I love the support! I, too get tired of the constant fight between May and Misty. I thought that maybe I'd twist it up a bit. I'm currently adding more to the last "short chapter" until I decide to end chapter 6. Then, somewhere here at the bottom, I'll write chapter 7

Alrighty! Here's chapter 7!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Chapter 7

"Hey Tracey, How's your Pokemon researching going?" asked Misty as Tracey helped her up,

"Well, I've drawn a whole lot of new sketches...."

"may I see them?" Ash muttered somthing about "stupid sketches" behind them.

"Sure... um c'mon Misty, I'll show them to you," He said, leading her outside by the hand.

Ash stuffed his hands in his pockets ad walked out of the tent and over to the fire at the right of the one Tracey and Misty were sitting by. Misty started to flip through Tracey's notebook when Tracey remembered the new sketches he had drawn and what Joy had said about them

"Wow, Tracey... These are really good! I love this one" She said, pointing to a really life-like drawing of some haunter... well as life-like as ghost Pokemon could get.
Tracey had drawn all sorts of rare Pokemon, like Misty's Tpgapi, some rare unknown, Lugia, Celebii, Articuno, Zapdos, and tons more.

"What's this?" She said, turning to the page tracey had most recently drawn on. It was the picture of Misty and himself in the Misty Mermaid underwater ballet.

"That's really good, Tracey. But I thought you said you passion is to draw Pokemon. And that You're don't love to draw humans."

"Well... um... I thought.... you... um... you..."

"Yes?"

"You were... really pretty that night... you were gorgeous... and I... uh... like to draw anything with um... beauty..." Tracey's face had shaded from it's natural tan to a bright red. Misty's had darkened with a pinch of pink. She smiled, not suspecting anyithing like that from a shallow guy like Tracey.

"That's sweet." She turned to the next page.

"Tracey..." Misty blushed to a deep red.

Tracey became nervous,

"Yeah?..."

Misty got an evil look in her eye and reached inside her cloak,

"N...no need to get violent on me Misty!"

"TRACEY! I'M GONNA KILL YOU!" She said, pulling her hand out from in her cape. It was holding her ever trusty mallat.

"AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!" tracey cried, running for his life around the camp.

Everybody face faulted (other than Tracey and Misty). Misty ran after Tracey occaiosnally bonking him on the head with the mallat. She threw the Notebook into the air and it landed next Ash. He flipped to the page Misty had last turned to. He smiled. It was the picture of Misty on top of him. It was really good. But Tracey had no right to do that.... even though it ws great...

"Hey! Misty!"

Misty stopped,

"Yes Ash?"

"Have an extra mallat?"

Misty grinned evily at Ash. He grinned evilly back.

"Here!" She threw him a large mallat.

"CHARGE!" They both jumped on Tracey and starting whacking him with the large, wooden hammers. Nurse Joy sat, innocently watching them and laughing

"Tracey! How DARE you!" Cried Misty, Whacking him again.

"What?! What'd I do! What did I do?" AHHH! MERCY! UNCLE! AUNT! I GIVE! I GIVE! STOP! Misty and Ash tumbled off of him. Ash laughed. somthing he hadn't done in a long, long time,

"That was fun, Misty. I can see why you like doing it!" Misty smiled. She hadn't seen Ash happy... well she hadn't seen Ash at all lately... in a long time. She remembered then why he was her best friend. it wasn't above him to care or have fun, unlike those other careless masters.... or at least, she hoped so.

Just then, coming crashing through the underbrush burst Brock, Max, Joy jr. and a brilliantly colored Ladyba.

"Ba! Ladyba!"

"Come on back, Lady!" Called Joy (jr.)

"We're back with lotts of firewood!" Triumphantly called Max, holding up his bundle. Brock, Joy (jr) and Max saw Misty awake.

"Misty!" Cried Max, running and hugging her (more like glomping her)

"Yay! You're okay!" Cried Joy (jr)

"Ash, you're okay, too." said Brock, rather bordly.

"Glad ya noticed." Ash said, sulking again.

"Ash... can I talk to you in private for a minute?" Asked Misty, nervously turning to him.

"Sure, Misty... I guess..." Said Ash. Misty led him into the forest.

"Brock, can we follow them? Pretty please?" Asked little eight year old Joy.

"Yeah! can we?" Asked Max, getting excited.

"Well..." Brock thought for a minute,

"We shouldn't disturb them in privacy... and I could never forgive myself, BUT, I could forgive you two for accedentally overhearing and telling me..."

"Alright! Triumph!" Cried Max and Joy, high-fiving each other.

"What do you think they'll be talking about Max?"

"I don't know, but I can't wait!"

"I hope it's romantic!" Whispered Joy as she and Max crawled silently through the brush.

Now to finish my review. What did I was going to write? OH, I remember.Your chapeter were pretty good. I really looking foward to see the next one. There was one chapter I was totally lost, I didn't know what were you talking about it was chapter 5, I had to read it again to understands it.

Oh, and the part where Max was driving and poor Brock was so scared was hilarious. I loved it. but the part with the nurses Joys I was confused. I didn't know who was whom. Oh, I have a question. Since when did Misty started training Ninetails who are fire-types? I mean, everyone knows she specialized in water-types. Or did you just do that for your fic because you needed that way?

I just read something in one chapter, which I don't recall which one was it. May and Drew must have looked so cute in the last scene, so close... *sighs deeply* so romantic. I love it!! Excellent work!

I wonder why did Misty get mad with Tracey. Are you goin' to explain dat next chapie? Coz I don't think she got mad for the drawing, right?

Thank you. I'll have to edit chapter 5 to make more sense. I love whe Max is driving Brock around too. :D It's funny. (Even if I do say so myself) I'll ty to make the Joys more understandible but dont worry because the way I plan it, when Joy jr. figures out she wasnt's to be a nurse for people she'll change her name to Nurse Jane For the Ninetails part (ok I admit I LOVE NINETAILS!) but that's not the only reason. I needed to put in a certian pokemon that could have alot of past mystery and has psycic atacks (you'll find out why later). If you have any more questions, I'll be happy to answer them, so either put them on here or pm me!

Correcto! I'll explain that, but I just got back from tidying up my room.

Yay! Two pages!

Okay. There were a few spelling errors, and erm, at times you did not cap a few letters here and there. Small mistakes, though. I do not wish to nitpick, because I know what you mean even with the errors. Try to cut down on them, though.

Why in the world would Misty wanna kill Tracey? :P That was just a sarcastic question. No need to answer. Nice story so far.

Mysteria Pearl
15th June 2005, 11:10 PM
Sounds good. Anybody else want me to clear anything up?

O. Thank you. I'll try and clear those errors up

well... I guess this is a good of a place as any to continue chapter 7

In this chapter... Well... I'm going to make this BETWEEN pg and pg13. like... pg12 or somthing. It doesn't have any swearing or anything like that it's just some people won't take it as lightly as others will.

Enjoy!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Chapter 7 continued

"Ash... I wanted to ask you somthing..."

"Aw.... gee Mist...."

"I was wondering... about back in Cereulean.... I..."

"Misty! I'm sorry! I just... I didn't mean to destroy it...."

"Yeah, Yeah, I know Ash... It wasn't your fault. Starry just wanted to fight too much! Even when it couldn't stand any more..."

"I... I..." Ash turned his face away from her. A tear escaped Misty's eye.

"Misty! Please don't cry! Please!" he took her hand. He just couldn't stand to see her cry.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Joy squealed behind the brush. Lucky for her, Max was prepared with his hand over her mouth.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
"Ash..." Misty threw her arms around him, burring her face in his shirt,
"You're my best friend... and more... I don't blame you fo anything!" Now her tears were flowing freely onto Ash's shirt. But he didn't mind.

"Mist..." He nervously took his arms and held her to him.

"I'm glad you're back."

"I'm glad to be back."

They released each other.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Joy bit Max's hand.

"Yow!" He hissed

"We better get back!" whispered Joy.

"You're right! Which way was it?" Joy pointed

"You better hold my hand so that we dont get seperated." Joy said. Max took her little hand and they scurried back to the "camp."
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
"We'd better get back to the others." said Misty. Ash agreed and they set off.

*Do I dare?* thought Ash
As they were walking side by side, he took Misty's hand. She snuck a glance at him. And he, her. They both blushed furiously as their glances met.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Max and Joy (jr) burst into the camp and almost fell into the same fire as May and Drew were "cozying" at. Max saw May... and Drew. And he immeaditly saw, from his sisters glare NOT to bug them.

"You want somthing, Max?" Asked Drew.

"Uh, no. Nothing, really." With that, he pulled Joy over to where Brock and Tracey were making dinner.

"Brock! Tracey! You'll never believe it!"

"What? Spying on them?" Asked Tracey bitterly.

"They! She! He-" But before Joy could finish, Misty and Ash walked out of the forest hand in hand with red faces. Ash had a big smile on his face. And who could blame him, he had a weight off his shoulders. They walked over to Nurse Joy (the OLDER one)

"Nurse Joy, do you know where my cape is?"

Nurse Joy thought for a second,

"Yes. I do believe it's hanging in the tent." Misty rushed into the tent and picked up her adored cape. Out of one of the inside pockets, she pulled out a long thin silver edged mirror. She held it up to her face and sighed.

"I look awful." She pulled a small comb out of another pocket. Misty sat down on a log near a bonfire and pulled her rubber band out of her side ponytail and set it next to her.

"Hey Misty!" She turned. Ash was waving her rubber band on his finger.

"OOH! Ash!" She said getting up and running at him.

"Trace! Catch!" Ash said, throwing it to Tracey. Misty changed direction,

"Tracey! Give it to me now!"

"Ash! Heads up!" But only a few seconds after he caught it, Misty rammed him and pinned him to the ground.

"Ash! Give me the band!" Ash looked up into her face, with her long hair, now loose. He blushed as he saw how pretty she was now. Well... she had always been beautiful, but with her hair down she was espescially gorgeous.

"Ash? You ok?" He looked around. Misty had him pinned to the ground about four feet away from the largest bonfire. His eyes narrowed.

He threw the band into the fire.

"Ash! You numskull! That was the last rubberband I have!" She let go of one of his arms and took his hat. She placed it on her head. She giggled,

"You still have hat head Ash! Don't you ever comb your hair?"

"No." with his free arm, he reached up and turned the hat to the side.

"Dinner's ready!" Called Brock.

"I'll let you up this time, but next time I'll get you," She said, grinning. Misty got off of him and gave him his hat back. He reached up and tucked her hair behind her ear. She smiled down at him and helped him up.

"C'mon you flirters!" Called Tracey.

Do I have to spell it out? Fine. M.A.L.L.E.T.

After bashing Tracey's head in, Ash and Misty went to get dinner.

"Brock, What's to eat?" Asked Ash, excited at the sound (ok and smell) of food.

"We have some realy great soup, some bread, rice cakes and gravy." 0_o

"Sounds great!" Ash took five helpings.

Sweatrop

"Ash, are you sure you can eat all that?" asked Misty.

"I need my energy to clobber Team Rocket and get Piccachu back!"

"Whatever you say, Ash." Misty said, taking a rice cake and a piece of bread.

"Speaking of Team Rocket," Started Nurse Joy,
"I believe It would be best to start out fresh tomorrow morning after them."

"I think it's a good idea!" Tracey and Brock piped up simultaniously.

"Me too!" Yelled Joy and Max.

"It's a good idea." said Misty calmly. Everyone looked at Ash. He grumbled.

"Do we have to wait that long?"

"YES!"

"We'll have to check with May and Drew." Said Misty. Max laughed.

"If I know May, she'll do anything to sleep... I mean get her 'beauty rest.' And I'm sure Drew will agree with whatever she says."

"Why's that?" Asked Tracey.

Max pointed at his sister and Drew cozying.

"Kay. I agree with Max."

Sweatdrop.

"Hey Ash."

"Yeah Max?"

"I met your mom before and Brock said that she has an incredible Mr. Mime! Once we go get your naxt badge we go to their next contest can we please go to your home? Huh? can we? C'mon! Please! I really wanna research it! May and I haven't been to your house yet!"
Ash glanced at brock and Tracey.

"Yeah, fine. Whatever. We can go see my mom."

Misty face sadened,

"I'm going to go eat by the fire." She stood and walked over to a fire and sat back down.

"Pssst. Ash! go talk to her." Whispered Tracey giving Ash the "eye."

Ash took his food and sat down next to Misty.

"What's wong?"

She looked sadly at him.

There was a day, a day like no other... a day fear and hate began...

"Nothing, Ash. Nothing... but..."

Mother.... Father...

"C'mon, Mist. Somthing's troubling you. I can tell..."

They sat their food down. Misty hadn't eaten a bite... and Ash suddenly didn't feel hungry anymore.

"I.. I......" She turned away from Ash.

"Misty. You can tell me." He took her shoulder and turned her to face him. She was crying. Ash couldn't stand it. He put his arm around her waist and neck and hugged her tight. Her eyes opened wide with surprise... but then... she closed her eyes, shamelessly crying.

"Ash... I'll tell you another time..."

I promise! I won't let sad memories take over my mind anymore. But I can't forget... and in some ways I don't want to... can't remember...

"That's fine, Mist... Anytime..."

Seeing things I only ever dreamed of... things I desire... that other people have... but I could never have for myself...

After taking his hanky (given to him by Misty in the last Misty Jhoto episode) and dabbing Misty's eyes, they finished their dinner, nervously chatting.

"So Misty, what have you been doing since you left me... us?"
She giggled,

"Well, if you must know, we've been remodeling. They're doing my room now... that's why I've been here. I've been here for the past few weeks and Already I've found a gym that wants to hire me."

"Hire you! I thought... well... maybe you'd want to come travel with us again." Ash said dissapointedly.

"Oh no! Don't take me wrong! I adore to go back with you guys... but..."

"but what?"

"Until the remodling's done, my sisters made an agreement with the current leader of that gym, and now, unless someone can convince him otherwise, I have to stay there."

"Who does that gym leader think he is!" punching his hand.

"It's okay Ash, really! you don't need to worry about me, not that you would care if I came along or not, but the gym leader was my father's best friend's son. He's also one of my best friends, too. His name's Keuyu (Key-oo-you)," she laughed,

"When we were little, he said he ws going to make me his bride."

Ash quietly brooded and turned red.

"Now that I think about I haven't seen him since the funeral..."

"Whose funeral?"

"Uh... Nobody's. But last time Keuyu had such nice manners, he was just like a prince!" She pulled a little picture out of her cloak,

"I have a picture, if you'd like to see..."
Ash snatched te picture. Keuyu had long dark lashes, a kind smile, and tanish skin. And did I mention blue eyes? Heck ya, bright blue eyes and light blonde hair. In other words (of any average girl) he was hot.

"A long time ago, he had a little sister, but Sheath died... well dissapeared along with his and my..."

"yeah?"

Misty swallowed,

"Well, you see, Daisy, Lily, Violet and I all shared the same mother. After they were born, their father dissapeared. Mother married the Cereleaun city gym leader, Mr. Waters, who later became my father. My mother and sisters loved bug Pokemon, *eeww* but they felt strange at a water gym, and one day, a freak accident occoured. Mother drowned. The next morning..." she sniffed, " Sheath, Keuyu and I found her, in one of the empty tanks. Daisy, Lily, and Violet got enreged, blaming my father. They were quite ruthless and locked him, and Sheath by accident, in a place that Father had made for them, a wild bug Pokemon room that he called the "reserve." it had windows all along the walls so we could see in, but we couldn't break them. Keuyu and I begged them to let us go in and save Sheath at the least from the savage bugs but they refused. I broke in, though one night, stealing the key from under Daisy's pillow and tried to search for them. I couldn't find Sheath anywhere but I did see Father... but he wasn't... alive... I returned the key and gave up hope. After a couple of days, Daisy and Lily entered, Violet was quite fond of Father, and she really wasn't part of their scheeming. When they finally came out they said that everything was closed up tight and Sheath was nowhere to be seen, there were no remains of her and no real remains of father either, just a few shreadded bands of cloth. That night, Keuyu's parents also went missing. My sisters had some men come in and clean it up and none of us have ever said another word about it. There was a funeral and the judge enered the deathes and accidental and they were dismissed because Keuyu and I never spoke up. But I know my sisters love me alot and their mother was my mother so even though I should inherit the gym, I let them take it over because I was so young and they thirteen, fourteen, and twelve. (Lily, Daisy and then Violet) The funeral came and went and Keuyu came here to Hoen and sent me this current picture. Well, I'm getting ahead of myself. My sisters got nicer and just started to kindly tease me. That's why I left, because they thought since I didn't have their "spectacular" dad, I just didn't cut it. They were always the most beautiful or the best or the most graceful. Thats when I met you guys, three years after my parents and close friends died. So Keuyu is very important to me. I couldn't stand losing one of my sisters, as annoying as they may be, and Sheath was so sweet and cute... He lost his whole family in one day and can still smile. I can't even do that. I just keep running further away, thinking about the times of the yesterdays... I..."

Ash had been listening thoughtfully the whole time,

"Misty you're amazing, you know that?" Misty was startled,

"No, I'm not that special! I'm just average... I wish I could forget what you think is impressive."

"Hey Ash! Misty! Guess what!" Max yelled as he ran up.

"Yeah?"

*You sure know how to ruin the moment* thought Ash

"There are showers set up! We can get all clean! We haven't showered since two days ago!"

"Eww, Ashy!" She giggled,

"You haven't showered in two days??? Your mom would have a fit!"

"Yeah! So wha? When was the last time you showered?"

"Max, is today still Tuesday?"

"If by what you mean is before midnight, yeah. It's Tuesday. But it's eleven."

"That means I took one Last night..."

"..."

Sweatdrop

"Please tell me you're not thinking about it!"

"Eh... heh... heh heh... uh no.... uh..." Max and Ash stumbled.

"Never mind. Max, go tell everybody else about the shower. I'm going last."

"Okay! You can go after my sister! I'm sure she'll want to go later too!" He grinned and hurried off.

Misty turned to Ash, putting her face very close to his, so their noses were almost touching,
"Honestly tell me Ash. PLEASE! tell me you wern't thinking about me... in the shower."

"Uh..."

"Well, you're my best friend and I don't want my best friend to lose his head and not be able to find it! We are best friends, right?"

"Yeah! You're the best!"

"So will you please come with me to see Keuyu?"

"Ash! Ash!" Max called running up,

"You're first! Go on! Or you'll make us all wait!" He ran off again.

Ash stood up,

"If he's a friend of yours, he's a friend of mine. Yeah, I'll go. But you wanna know something?"

"Yes?"

"You really are amazing, Mist. I know I couldn't handle what you have." He smiled and ran to their complaining friends. Misty looked down at the picture.

"He's really nice, Keu. I hope you like him as much as I do... He understands and..."

"Hey Miss Misty, why are you talking to that picture?" May popped out from behind a tree

"May! Don't do that! I thought you... Drew..."

"He went to eat. Anyway, what's with the picture? and... and..."

Misty sighed and began the whole story all over again for anxious May.

"Woah... wierd... how did Ash take it?"

"Huh? He was fine, what else?"
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
So what da' ya think our beloved Ash and Misty were talking about?" Brock asked Tracey.

"I don' know but I wish I had it on video."

"Me too, but I guess we can just ask Ash later. Or maybe May will spill it." Brock said, motioning with his head at the two girls."

"..."
~~~~~~~~~~
Ash got out of the shower (all dressed mind you! Just so ya know, he got dressed inside)

"Who's next?" Ash called as he walked back into the camp.

"Not me. I'm going tomorrow." Brock said.

"Same here." (Tracey)

"Yeah. I always take showers in the day and I took one this morning" Drew said taking another bite of food.

"Max is already in his sleeping bag and so are the Joy's. So I guess we can count them out."

"I guess May's next then."

"okay." Ash walked over to where the girls were talking.

"May, you're next to use the shower."

"Eewwwwwww! After you?" Squeeled May.

"Would you rather shower after a guy or smell like one?" Asked Misty sarcasticly.

"I DON"T SMELL!" Cried Ash.

"..." May and Misty looked at each other.

"I'll wait outside to make sure that theres no peeking toms." Said Misty.

"Thanks."
~~~~~~~~~

Ash got back to the others and laid down on his sleeping bag.

"So Ash, what's up with Misty? You guys looked real lovey-dovey." Said Tracey as he, Brock and Drew said down on their sleeping bags.

"It wasn't like that! She was telling me that... well..." He took a deep breath and began,

"Daisy, lily, Violet and Misty all shared a mother but Misty's sisters' father wasn't Misty's. Misty's dad, he ran the gym, married Misty's mom but the sisters wern't happy about it. One day their mother accidentally drown and Misty and her friends Keuyu and Sheath found her. Misty's sisters blamed their mothers death on Misty's father and locked him, and accidentally Sheath, in a room filled with wild grass types..." he took a breath,
"Misty broke in and found her father dead and Sheath was nowhere to be seen. Misty's sisters got nicer but took over the C.C. gym and Keuyu moved here and started a gym of his own and now while remodling is being done on Misty's gym, she's supposed to stay with this Keuyu guy." He panted.

"An... and... thats... it........."

"Dude, you just said over a hundred thirty words in under thirty seconds."

"Yeah... Tracey's right. I've never even heard May talk so fast. Her record's one hundred words in thirty four seconds. But let me get this straight... Misty's mom's dead and so is her dad and her sisters are really her half sisters and they killed her dad? So much for the four beautiful water flowers of Cereulean city." stumbled Brock.

"..."

"Did I say four? I meant three! Daisy Lily and Violet!"

Drew, Tracey, and Ash snickered.

"Yo, Misty! Brock's got the hots for you!" Tracey called into the forest.
Drew, Tracey and Ash all hooted with laughter.

"Well... So does Ash and Tracey!" Brock called into the forest.

"Whatever." Came Misty's voice.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

"What was that about?" Asked May from inside the shower. Misty had already drawn a romance novel out of her cape and was reading it (??????????romance novel?)

"Well, Tracey said that Brock likes me and then Brock said that Ash and Tracey like me..."

"Brock, I'm not so sure of but Tracey and Ash, I can almost completly confirm!"


"Uh... I'm sure I don't want to know, but how?"

"Well, when you were out cold, first, Ash sat by the fire with you in his arms and like, he wouldn't let go. Then when Nurse Joy came, he was so dizzy that you and he, him carrying you, almost fell into the fire and it turns out that he like suffered from a konk on the head but he was suffering it out to take care of you! and then Tracey took you while Joyie (Joy jr.) was taking care of "Mr. Ketchum" and he was all holding you and drawing you and him and then you and Ash..."

"How do you know this?" Asked Misty, keeping her eyes on the novel.

"I have eyes everywhere!"

"..."

"Okay, Fine. I had Max and Joyie watch for me.... mostly..."

"You're a sick freak, May," Misty laughed,
"And I mean that in the best way possible."

"Hey Misty?"

"Yeah?"

"Are we friends?"

"Yeah."

"Good. Just checking. I'm sorry."

"For what?"

"I don't know... well... I guess that I was jealous when I found out that a girl had already been traveling with Ash, Brock and Tracey and... I guess I was mad that I wasn't the original... twerpette..."

"That's okay. I forgive you. I guess I was a little jealous too when I found out they... replaced me with two new people."

"Eh, nobody could replace someone as cool as you. That's what Ash always said."

"So... friends?"

"Yep!" MAy emerged from the shower, fully dressed (accept for the shoes)
"Kay! They shower's all yours!"

May sat down on a boulder.

"You really think Ash likes me?" Asked Misty as she took off her [leather] boots and her cape (revealing a high quality stylish satin and pure black silk blouse and long black skirt and set them down next to May.

"I can almost assure you 99%! (ninety-nine percent not 9996!)

".................."

Misty got in the shower and took off her clothes. there was a long pole holding numerous dry toweld and there was a place to hang (the persons) clothes.

*I wonder who in his right mind would put a shower in the middle of a forest and put clean towels and stuff in here? Oh well. Ours is not to question why.*

She turned on the water. It was really cold. Just how she liked it (okay she likes all water) She shivered as she washed herself all over (we don't need the details, do we?) She finished showering and dried herself off with a fluffy white towel.

"Hope this is clean..." She muttered to herself.

"What was that?" Asked May.

"Nothing. I'll be right out so you can go."

"Okay. I'll go get some dinner." May got up and walked off.

Misty put her hair up and began to put on her "unmentionibles" when she heard somthing rustle behind her, outside of the shower.

"May? Is that you? Ash? Bock? Trac..." She stopped midsentence as her eyes grew wide with horror. She looked up to the open top of the shower. Staring down at her was the biggest spinarac she had ever seen. It was giant.

She backed up and took a towel and wrapped it asround herself. She tried to scream, but no sound would come out of her mouth. She looked up at the spinaraq unable to move, paralyzed with fear. It turned its head and looked down at her. That was IT! She couldn't take it. She screamed. (You know, I still cant hear.)

"Misty!" Ash said as he, being followed by Brock, Tracey, and Drew, tore the curtainsopen, finding Misty cowering in a corner (can a forest shower have a corner? You get what I mean) wrapped in a towel looking up at a humongus bug pokemon. Ash grabbbed Misty's hand and pulled her out of the shower into the cold open air.

"Misty? are you okay?" Misty looked up into his eyes and then laid her head on his shoulder and sobbed.

"S... spinirac.... k... killed... Father..." Ash wiped a tear from her eye.

"Where's your clothes?" Misty pointed to the shower.

"I'll go get them and try to help Brock and Tracey. Will you be okay?"

She gave a hollow nod. Ash took his vest off and wrapped it around her shoulders and ran towards the shower.

"Miss Misty? What's wrong? Where's your clothes? Where's..." Ash suddenly showed up next to babbling May (who was holding a plate full of rolls covered in gravy) and handed Misty her clothes

"Here... um..."

"I'll leave now... uh... I need to get more... Gravy!" May piped as she skipped away back towards the camp.

sweatdrop

"Well?" Asked Misty raising an eyebrow.

"What?"

"Turn around! So I can put on my clothes!" Ash turned bright red and spun around. Misty dropped the towel and slid into the blouse and skirt.

"Misty, can I turn back around now?"

Misty buttoned the back button,

"Yeah, but could you help me tie this?" she said as Ash turned around, pointing to ribbons on her shirt.

"okay..." He tied the ribbons and hung the cape over her shoulders.

"Shoot!"

"Wha? Did I tie the strings too tight?"

"No, no... I just realized I don't have anything to sleep on... N-Not that I need any help! I-I..."

"Would you like to sleep in my sleeping bag?"

"N...No! I just couldn't! I couldn't make you sleep on the ground!"

"Since when?" Misty gently slapped Ash on the cheek.

"If you two are going to make out, can you do it elsewhere?" Tracey and Brock said in unison coming out from the shower.

"What happened to the sp...spin.."

"Eh, don't worry your pritty little head off about that. We got rid of it."

"My... pritty..."

"Never mind. We'll be leaving now wont we, Tracey? said Brock, pulling Tracey away.

"C'mon Misty. Maybe Nurse Joy packed an extra sleeping bag."

"Thanks." said Misty as Ash took her by her hand and led her back towards the clearing.

*I'm so dizzy...* Misty eyes blurred and she trippd over a log.

"Misty? Are you okay? Misty!" Ash panicked as he caught her. She looked up at him and then blacked out (or in the older Pokemon games such as red, "She whited out")

Ash rushed into camp with Misty in his arms.

"Ash, don't tell me you were so awful that you made her faint!"

"No! of course not! I'm not like you! She just like collapsed! Does anybody have an extra sleeping bag?"

"Nope. Nurse Joy didn't. All she has is blankets."

"Then she'll sleep in my sleeping bag!" Ash declared as he knelt down and slipped her into the bag. He brushed the hair away from her face andd felt her forehead. She was burning up. Ash ran and got a wet towel and laid it on her head.

"Where are you going to sleep, Ash? Your bag's taken and..."

"On the ground, next to her. I'm not leaving her side."

He laid down next to her, watching her until he fell asleep.

Yes, I must be the luckiest girl in the world. I really do have wonderful, awesome friends.



Boy I am really terrible. You can tell I'm getting obsessed with Fruits Basket because I used one or two of the lines from the books and movies and Misty (When she's being all flustered) if you haven't noticed, was acting alot like Tohru Honda (Tohru-kun, Handa-san etc) But... heh... I'm not the writer (ok so tecnicly I am) I'm just the recorder! They do. I write.

A little "preview"- wel... what shall I say... Well, You know Kisa from Fruits Basket? Well, a character like her is coming! If you haven't heard over her, hey you've got a computer! look her up! But she's really cute and shy and stuff so... look forward to chapter 8!

PLEASE REVIEW AND REPLY! I'm done with this chapter. Nothing's stopping you! Seriously! If you like this part so far, PLEASE pm me! (Please be at least a bit supporting. None of this "You waste my time!" or anything!) Thank you

Very nice so far. Like mindripper said, a few errors but that's okay. Try to fix those but do continue. ^_^

I really enjoyed that! Especially the bashing-Tracey-with-mallets part, not that I hate Tracey or anything...but it was really funny. lol Poor guy!


"C'mon you flirters!" Called Tracey.
LOL He was asking for it! :D

Jus make sure that when someone's saying something, that you let us know which character is saying it, e.g like this part

Ash rushed into camp with Misty in his arms.

"Ash, don't tell me you were so awful that you made her faint!"


But like I said, it was really good! Thanks for PM-ing me, and I can't wait for the next chap!

Well like you said, I couldn't figure out who would be best to say some lines, so... well... I guess I just decided to leave it up to your guy's imaginations! You think it's Tracey? Fine! It's Tracey! You think it's Brock? Ok then! Am I being too terrible with the Fruits basket lines? like
"I'm not like you!"
"If you two are going to make out, do it elsewhere"
the whole "hotts part" like when Momiji's all "Kyo's got the hotts!"
You notice how Ash cant stand to see a girl cry like Kyo
Ash- "Please Dont Cry!" Kyo- "Doooont cry!" Kyo- "ok, why are you crying?"
and the whole remodling bit like Tohru/Misty. You can really tell I like D.N Angel and Case Closed (ok well not yet) and I did put a line in from Yugio... somthing having to so with smelling like boys... NO OFFENSE! some boys smell awesome! but My says somthing like "Just because you travel with guys doesn't mean you have to smell like them" to Tea. Anywho, I'm writing notes on the next chapter and it's going to rock! pm me if you want some good spoilers!

mindripper
30th June 2005, 8:49 AM
Not bad at all. You advanced the plot pretty well, and there were a few nice touches. I liked the usage of seperate lines for trains of thought. Nice one there.

However, there are still a few errors (not important), and a lot of speech! Action speaks louder than words, and you should have more descriptive text! Also, there was this long paragraph of speech, break it up! Allow the story to flow more smoothly.

Yup, take care and will be back for enxt one. :)

Mysteria Pearl
30th June 2005, 7:14 PM
Sorry about all the "speech." but I don't want it to sound toooooo narrated or somthing (right?) Like, "He did this." "he did that" And plus, who in real life zips their mouth closed? And everybody here says to me stuff like that "If you cant get a point across, don't bother doing anything" which I don't think is a very good perspective! But just try and work with me? I'll just try and make the speech more broken up.
In General
Anybody like anything? even the tinest "I like this" will help me. PLEASE SUPPORT!! once people tell me what they like, not what they dont like, I can put what you like in. Make sense? So instead of "I dont like so much talk," say somthing like "I really like this part but you should try putting a little more action in this certain part."

Thank you very much for your advice Look forward to chapter 8!!!

Nice chapter Mysteria Pearl! I got confused in some parts, but I get it now.


As they were walking side by side, he took Misty's hand. She snuck a glance at him. And he, her. They both blushed furiously as their glances met.
Oh, I loved this part. I bet they looked cute!!


Daisy, lily, Violet and Misty all shared a mother but Misty's sisters' father wasn't Misty's. Misty's dad, he ran the gym, married Misty's mom but the sisters wern't happy about it. One day their mother accidentally drown and Misty and her friends Keuyu and Sheath found her. Misty's sisters blamed their mothers death on Misty's father and locked him, and accidentally Sheath, in a room filled with wild grass types..." he took a breath,
"Misty broke in and found her father dead and Sheath was nowhere to be seen. Misty's sisters got nicer but took over the C.C. gym and Keuyu moved here and started a gym of his own and now while remodling is being done on Misty's gym, she's supposed to stay with this Keuyu guy." He panted.

Wow, Ash really talked fast here. I felt sorry for Misty, finding her dad death must be shocking. Poor Mist.


"May? Is that you? Ash? Bock? Trac..." She stopped midsentence as her eyes grew wide with horror. She looked up to the open top of the shower. Staring down at her was the biggest spinarac she had ever seen. It was giant.

She backed up and took a towel and wrapped it asround herself. She tried to scream, but no sound would come out of her mouth. She looked up at the spinaraq unable to move, paralyzed with fear. It turned its head and looked down at her. That was IT! She couldn't take it. She screamed. (You know, I still cant hear.)

Ok, this part scares me, I'm feeling shivers going up and down my spine. I really hate bug specially spiders. I, like Misty, have a thing for bugs, something when I see a bug I just can't move, or shout. I understand what she must had felt.

Mysteria Pearl
1st July 2005, 6:20 AM
yeah... me too.... that's why I didn't write too much about the incects because I give myself the bergeebers! *shiver!* I got aracniphobia and all that so I HATE bugs! Ick! Once I found a *gulp* daddy-long-legs in my sweater and a redish one crawling up my leg. Not to mention the time I found a turanchula (no idea how to spell that cuz I don't pay attention in science "aracnid week") on the only path to school. AHHH! wow. I just scared myself. Anyway, enough about me! Anybody got a really great fic? I'd lovvve to read it! (In all honestly my hand hurt from typing so much today.)

misty_aquamaster
1st July 2005, 8:41 PM
Please, Mysteria Pearl don't talk about those *shivers by just thinking about them* things... Please, I also have aracnophobia (or whatever it is spell) could you tried no to mention those bugs, please?

Mysteria Pearl
2nd July 2005, 5:06 AM
heheh. sorry. i'll go edit. :D Just trying to get a point across. bugs ick. There was an earwig... uh... never mind.... :D Anyway I'm totally pumped about this next chapter! Yay! as soon as I get a few more replies, I'll start to write it!

2nd July 2005, 7:08 PM
As I said in my PM, not bad. The plot is original, to say the least. The appearance of Joy Jr. makes for one of those 'questioning the ways of life' things. Can a Joy be someone besides a Pokémon nurse? Can she have [natural] blue hair?

You're bringing in a Kisa? Aw...and I actually didn't really notice the Furuba lines myself...though you could find some of those lines anywhere, no?

I await s'more of the story...and politely suggest maybe running a chapter through a spell check sometime, or perhaps a bit less dialogue. Otherwise, very good. ^^ Later!

Mysteria Pearl
3rd July 2005, 1:57 AM
well, actually, I didn't notice me putting in the furuba lines either. Someone (I am keeping them annoymous) told me. I guess it was just habbital. Later there'll be a whole part for Joy jr. You know, the story. Yep she does have natural blue hair. Don' know how but she does. If anyonw would like the story (fyi) of Joy jr, pm me. But no, I'm not bringing in kisa herself, I don't own her or anything. But *sigh* if you want to know who "Kisa" will be, pm me.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Chapter 8

Ash woke up with a start in the middle of the night. He opened his eyes and was staring straight into Misty's sleeping face.

*What the...?* he tucked her long tresses behind her ear.
*O yeah... she fainted...* He hesitantly put his bare arm around her waist (in the sleeping bag)

At about the same time Tracey was stirring. He rolled over and saw Ash (and Misty) in his current position.

*I knew it. He does like her. And I'm betting he always has... darnit.* He glanced at his watch.

5:18 am

*I'll go take a shower.* he thought as he stood, glancing once more at "you know who" and walked off to the showers.

Ash heavily breathed in and smelled a heavenly (flowery) scent. His snapped awake. He hadn't even remembered falling asleep... with his arm around Misty. He carefully lifted his arm off of Misty and sat up and looked at his watch.

5:34 am

*Geez. Why do I have to be up...* he stopped midthought as he saw Tracey's sleeping bag without Tracey in it.

*Crud. If he saw, I may never hear the end of this.*
He stood up and stretched. Ash's stomach growled.
*you think after five helpings of Brocks food, I'd be stuffed.* He took a granola bar out of his backpack and sat down next to "Sleeping Beauty" to eat it. He stuffed the bar away as he usually did and just sat, watching Misty.

______________________
kay here's just a little map of where everyone was kind of sleeping
~~~~Drew~~May

~~~~~~~~~~~Misty
~~~~~~~~~~~~~Ash

~~~~~~Tracey~~~~~~~~Brock

Max~~~Nurse Joy
~~~~~~~~~~~~~Joy jr.
Anyway back to the story

Brock yawned and opened his eyes (okay, that doesn't really make sense, does it? Can he even open his eyes?) and without a thought, got up and went to prepare breakfast.

"Hey May, you up?"

May opened an eye and looked into Drew's eyes.

"Yup. I don't have a watch. What time is it?"

they sat up and Drew looked at his watch.

6:26 am.

"So? what time?

"Six thirty. You up for some breakfast?"

"Sure!" She smiled as Drew helped her up and they went to get some food.

Nurse Joy awoke and sat up.

"Joy. Joy dear. Wake up! You too Max." She looked at her watch,

"It's almost six forty. Wake up, sweetie." She said nudging Joy jr. Max sat up on the other side of Nurse Joy

"I smell food. Must eat! hahahaha!" He got up and ran off (running into Tracey, who just emerged from the shower) to the food. Joy Jr blinked.

"Joyie? Are you awake?" Asked Nurse Joy.

"Yeah" She said before yawning.

"C'mon," Nurse Joy said to her daughter,
"Or we wont get to the food in time before it's all eaten up."

"Okeydokey!" Joy Jr. and her mother went to get some of the delicious food that Brock had prepared.

Drew took another bite of pancakes,
"I think I'll go take my shower now. I'll be right back."

"Don't take too long or we'll never find team rocket and my Pokemon."

"Yeah, okay,"He said throwing away his paper plate and walking away into the woods.

Misty drifted out of her sleep and lazily blinked in the sunlight.

"Misty? Misty are you okay?"

Misty looked up into Ash's worried face and realized she was in his sleeping bag.

"Wha?! How did I get here?" She said sitting up.

"You fainted and I let you sleep in my sleeping bag."

Misty blushed,
"I'm soooo sorry! I didn't mean to! I... I..."

Ash took her shaking hand, noticing how cold it was.

"I'm just glad you're okay. Once you were out, you were out."

"Th... thank you for caring about me... It was really thoughtful of you..."

Ash turned a deep red as he stood up, still holding her hand,
"I.. I... you look hungry... uh... let's get somthing to eat." He helped her up by the hand,
"I smell Brock making pancakes..."

the Pokemon are quite disturbed

Ash looked into the sky.
"Hey Tracey, is it just me, or is the sky really overcast?"

"Your right Ash. It's like night time..." Said Misty looking into the blackness.

"It was light earlier... I wonder what happened?..." Tracey said aloud, taking another mouthful of pancakes and stuffing it in his mouth.

Drew walked up, drying his hair with a towel,

"What's up with the sky and where's May?"

"Sky, dont know. May, pigging out over there." Max said, pointing to a burnt out fire. May sat there with her back to a tree, looking at the sky.

"Oh good. You're out of the shower. I'm next." said Brock, popping out of nowhere and walking off.

sweatdrop

"Oh! I just remembered!" Misty randomly cried.

A round of "Yes?" was followed.

"Uh... nothing... I'll be right back." Said Misty, putting down her plate and getting up. She walked up over to May (who was again "dreamily" chatting with Drew about nothing in particular)

"May, I forgot to ask you for my contest ribbon. Can I please have it?"

"Uh... yah... sure... I guess." she said taking the ribbon out of her hip-pack (fanny-pac) and staring at it for a few seconds.

"Hey Misty, how many ribbons do you have?"

Misty reached into her cape and pulled out a case and opened it and handed it to May.

"If you mean in this country, I have eighteen, including this one. But in the past six monthes, in all of Jhoto I've won sixty. So that, including my almost twenty, I've got bout eighty. How many do you have May?"

May's mouth had already almost fallen off her face,
"Well... I've... won... ten... How did you get so many ribbons in so little time?"

"O well I switch off between diving, shows and contests. I just won another diving contest yesterday." Misty said cooly as she took the ribbon from May.

"W... What? How many diving competitions have you won?"

"You know how much 75% of two hundred is?"

"A hundred fifty."

Misty winked and did a pose,
"You betcha! Anyway, i'm gonna go back and get some breakfast. Bye!" She said, skipping off back towards Ash and friends.

"Crud that's alot." Drew said aloud

"Yeah... she must be real busy."

Brock walked into the camp with flat, wet hair (let me tell you, he looked... funky)

"We better get going, guys." He looked up at the sky,
"What's with the sky?"

"I don't know." Said Nurse Joy, walking up.
"I've never seen anything like it before."

"Hey Mist, do you mind if I use one of your pokemon and go up and take a look?" Ash said turning to Misty.

"Don't you have Noctowl or Tailow with you?"

Ash nervously sweatdropped,
"Uh... well, no actually... I..."

"Gotcha. But you have to take me with you."

Ash looked at her. He never remembered Misty being interested in anything strange... of course... he never really noticed... besides... that was like years ago... right?

"C'mon out! Number 204! Draga!" Misty cried, opening her cape. for a few seconds, light drowned everything out. A beautiful dragonaire appeared in front of them and Misty hopped on.

"C'mon Ash." Ash hopped on behind Misty and put his arms around her waist.

"Draga. Go up in the sky so we can see what's going on up there." Draga weightlessly acended up towards the sky.

Misty looked up and began to see shapes in the sky. Those dark groups wern't clouds... they were pokemon. Hundreds of flying Pokemon.

She gasped,
"Ash... Look..."

"What the...? Where are they all going?"

"I don't know but I think we should follow them."

"Okay."
Misty looked down back to the ground,
"Guys! It's all Pokemon up here! Somthing's wrong! Maybe we should folow them!"

"You two go ahead! We'll pack up and be right behind you!"

"Would you like my little Perogi to come along with you and help?" Misty called down.

*little? O well. Peroga... or whatever can't be too much trouble.* Thought Brock.

"Uh... Sure! We could use a little help carrying some stuff!" He called up to Misty.
"Okay! Here she comes! Come on out Perogi! Number one hundred!" She opened her came and in front of Brock materalized a humongous Ninetails. Not like five feet, more like fifty feet.

"Help My friends Perogi! Do what they say!" Misty called down (or rather straight across to) the giant Ninetails.

"Bye-bye guys!" She callled down to our heroes as she and Ash flew away on Draga.

The "trio" flew on towards the horizon. (okay, if you could tell if there was a horizon at all.)

"Dont 'cha think we should be looking for Team Rocket and Piccachu?" Ash asked looking around in the never ending black.

"I think Team Rocket has somthing to do with this."

"I..." Suddenly a bolt of purple light thrashed down at them, knowking Ash off of Draga and down, far down to the ground.

"Ash! Ash! Go down Draga! Now!" Misty cried, uncoordinated. She faintly thought that she heard someone call her name from far above, but she didn't care. She just needed to find Ash.

Misty finally spotted him, limp and crumpled on the ground.

"oh no..."

*he cant be... please no.... please..."

She landed Draga and ran to Ash's side, throwing herself down beside him, shaking him.

"Ash! Please! You cant be.... Ash! Please wake up! Help! Anyone!" She called into the sky. But she realized as soon as the words came out of her mouth, that nobody was around to hear her yell.

"Please.... someone... help." She began to sob and laid her head on Ash's chest, not stopping her sobbing long enough to listen and see if Ash was breathing.

"So this is it... This is how it ends..." She took a shaky breath,
"Ash... I..."

"Misty? Is that you?" Asked a voice from above her head. She looked up at the tall thin boy with tanish skin, dark lashes, blonde hair and blue eyes who was dripping with rain (she hadn't even realized in her drama that it was raining.) She looked into the sky as the boy helped her up. No longer was the sky filled with Pokemon. They had been replaced by clouds.

"Misty? Who's that?" The boy asked.

"I... I don't know what happened... Ash... he... Who are you?"
He looked hurt,
"Don't you remember your best friend? It's me. Keuyu."

Her eyes widened.

"Keu??? You have to help me! Ash is unconcious and just a second ago the sky was filled with Pokemon! I... I..."

"Hold on, Mi." He hugged her,
"It's gonna be okay." He released her,
"Do you have any flying Pokemon with..." She pointed to Draga.

"Okay, Mi. Hop on. I'll get your boyfriend."

Misty turned bright red.

"B... boyfriend?" She stumbled as she climbed onto Draga.

"Course. Why else would you two be travling alone together?" He asked, picking up Ash and walking over to the Dragonaire.

"I... We were with some other friends, Two Nurse Joys, Brock, Tracey, May, Drew, and Max but they had us follow the Pokemon in the sky and now they're gone... It's like they all dissapeared..." She took Ash from Keuyu and sat him down in front of her, laying his head on her chest. She put her arms around his waist,

"He'll be okay, right?"

Keuyu got on Draga in front of Ash,

"He'll be fine but there aren't any human hospitals anywhere around here, so I think what we should do is go to my gym, it's just West of here, and call your Nurse Joy's and have them come there."

''Okay. C'mon Draga, we need to get Ash somewhere he can rest." She looked down at Ash,

*Please be okay, Ash...* She held him closer.
*I don't know what I would do if you wern't..."
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
"Hey Brock, looky! The black in the sky is gone!"Joy said, pulling on Brock's pant leg.

Brock looked up.
"Yeah... that is odd... Maybe we should try and find Misty and Ash."

"Nine! Ninetails!" Brock and Tracey both struck and Animaic pose as Perogi snuck up behind them,

"Don't do that!"
~~~~~~~~~~
Misty looked up (wayyyyyyyyyyyyy up) at the hunormous (humongous + enormous) Gym in front of them.

"Th... this is yours?"

"Uh... Now it's yours too, Mi. Now that you're going to be living here and all. C'mon." Said Keuyu, heading inside (carrying Ash)

"Return Draga." Misty said opening her cape and calling back Draga. Then she followed Keuyu into the gigantic gym.

"Mi? You okay?"

"H... How did you get this built...? I mean... my sisters inherited all of..."

"Our parent's money? Yeah. i know. I have proof and my best friend and I are wittnesses. Add up? We're old enough to speak up now and your sisters are afraid. They just... well... sent me a small portion of my rightful inheritance so I just built this gym... Do you like it?"

Misty looked around. Above them was a huge dome ceiling and the floor and all the walls were made of marble. There were sofa's with satin cushions. And that was just the lobby.

"We can bring your friend Ash to a room I kept for emergincies. It has some medical supplies and then we can call your Joys if he doesn't wake up soon. Oh and I have tons to show you! We have lotts to catch up on!" Keuyu said as Misty followed him into a plain room. She looked around. Just a bed with royal purple covers and a window, looking out into a rose garden.
Keuyu interupted her thoughts,

"Don't worry. This isn't one of the guest rooms. Now that I think about it, this is the only room that isn't specially furnished." He finished as he set Ash down on the bed.

"Is that... so..." Keuyu put an air mask on Ash's face and turned to Misty excitedly,

"Oh! I have so much to show you! I was so happy when your sisters called and asked me to let you help with the gym! I even prepared a special suite all for you! I'm so excited! Would you like to see it?"

Misty looked at Ash,
"Can You first help me get in touch with the Joy's?"
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
"Guys. I have a bad feeling about this. Ash and Misty should be back by now." Max said looking into the sky (of course seeing no sign of them)

Nurse Joy and Joy Jr. had taken the supplies and the motor scooter and went ahead to try and find our two heroes and left Max, May, Drew, Brock and Tracey on foot.

"I think we should split up." Said May, coming out of nowhere.

"Yeah, May you're right. You go with Drew and try and find Team Rocket and We'll go after the Joys and try to find Misty and Ash."

"Agreed" Tracey said.

"Yeah, Yeah, whatever." Said Drew.

"Okay. Whatever Drew thinks!" (okay I think we can figure out who that was)

"Haha! Yay! I get to go with Brock and Traceyyyyyyyyy!" Max cried hopping around.

Sweatdrop.
~~~~~~~~~~~

"Hello? Could you pretty please tell me if two Joys and some other guys checked back yet? Oh, will you check, please?" Misty asked sweetly over the phone. Keuyu gagged and had to hold a hand over his mouth in order not to crack up.

"Really? Okay... could you perhaps ask someone to watch for them. Just look for a Nurse joy who's being accompionied by a little girl who has blue hair that's about four feet tall? Tell them that Miss Misty Waters is looking for them at the Gym and Ash needs urgent medical attention? Thnk you!" She finished sweetly and hanging up the picture phone.

"So, Princess Mi, would you like to go see your suite?" He said bowing.

"Oh Yes! Of course! But then can we check on Ash?"

"It would be my pleaseure to do whatever you want, or somthing, right?" He said, offering her an arm. Misty took his arm and Keuyu led her out of the lobby and into an elevator

Corny elevator music

The elevator doors opened on the 10th floor (ya big I know) and walked her down the hall to giant double doors.

"Are you ready, my Belle Mi?"

Misty nodded and Keuyu took her hand and with the other, he pushed open the doors.

Misty stood in awe looking in the beautiful suite. A whole wall was almost completly covered with windows that had doors that led to a balcony looking over the water habitats. The window had royal blue and purple silk and satin curtins with gold trim. In the middle of the room there was a canopy king sized bed draped with the same royal colors and the dark cherry oak wook had gold (real gold) trim. The floor was marble and around the room there were a few fluffy carpets. Covering two whole walls (here's the best part!) was a huge tank filled with water but it also had mini land islands. The tank was a good ten feet thick too. Hanging from the ceiling was a huge golden chandelier and on the last remaining wall was a huge wardrobe and mirror. The wall and the ceiling were marble-patterned purple and blue and gold. On the last wall were to large and square objects covered by a white sheet.

"What's that?" Asked Misty, once she floated back down to reality, pointing to the sheet covered object.

"Here." He said, drawing her over closer. He gripped one the sheets by the edge and pulled it away. It was a huge portrait of Misty's parents.

"H... how... did you...? Mother... F... Father..."

Keuyu took her hand,
"I painted it myself. I hope you like it."

"I... I do... It's lovely..."

"You haven't seen the half of it." He took the other sheet and pulled it away. Next to Misty's parent's painting was a portrait of a little girl with shoulder length green hair and golden eyes and an adorible little smile.

"Sheath."

"I... this took me awhile to paint so... I was hoping you'd like it in your room.

Misty looked at Keuyu and for the first time realizing the sad look on his face.

"It's gorgeous! This is all really too much! I feel like a Queen! I... I'm sorry about Sheath but..."

Keuyu brightened,
"Oh yeah! I almost forgot! Here! I got this in the mail and I think Sheathy is still alive!" He pulled a crinkled note out of his pocket and handed it to Misty.

She is here. He who comes looking for her without the right price wont get her. Either you come or you will never see her again. A reward of 20,000,000,000 would be fair, correct? This note may be late, and we here apoligize for that but you lost touch and we couldn't find you like a needle in a haystack. Help will not be necessary if you know what we mean if cops are involved, you'll never see her again.

"Who would... Why would..." Keuyu shook his head,
"I don't know. I've tried everything but I just cant trace it. I got the note in the mail about two weeks ago. I'm just glad to have a clue. Before I thought she was..."

"Gone?"

"Yeah... gone. But don't worry about that. Officer Jenny already knows and has a copy. So come with me, there's more for you.

On the one solid wall, there were two sets of double doors.

"Door one or door two?" Asked Keuyu bowing.

"Uh... One?" Keuyu walked over to the first doors and opened them wide,
"As you wish, Mi."

Misty walked through the double doors. Before her was a huge bathroom. The marble and gold-studded bathtub was at least six feet long and five feet wide and sloping down from two feet down to four feet. The whole ceiling was a window, looking up into the sky. The floor was made of blueish marble and there was a standing shower made of stain glass picturing water pokemon. Not to mention having gold and silver nobbs and spiggots and such. Then there was a whole counted made of light pink marble and had two sinks carved in with gold handles.

"Wow... It's so gorgeous."

"A gorgeous palace for a gorgeous princess. I'm pleased you like it." Misty blushed.

"OH! Please come and see what's in room two!" Keuyu said as he excitedly pulled Misty out of the bathroom and to the second set of doors.

"Go ahead! Open them! Open them!" Misty pulled open the doors.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
"Where should we look?" Asked May, pushing branches away from her face.

"Where would a Team Rocket hideout be?"

"I don't knoooo..." May stopped short as her face smacked into a branch.

"May! Are you okay?" Drew asked as he caught her and hugged her to him.

"Yeah... I'm okay now.... but we should be looking for the hideout... somewhere hidden, untrackible, someplace..."

"Like that?" Asked Drew pointing over a cliff to a large grew building.

"Holy..! Yeah, tha'd be it. C'mon!" She pulled Drew to the edge of the ledge and laid down and pulled Drew down with her.

The whole compound was crawling with Team Rocket Thugs and was probbably strung with trip wires and lazers.

"How do we get in?" Whispered May.

Drew looked around and spotted a small cement building off to the side guarded only by two.
"There. Knock out those guards and take their uniforms. then we can get in no problem."

"Uh, Drew. One problem. Look down." She said pointing. Drew looked down. Way wayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy down.

"Th... That must be a hundred feet." May looked him in the eye.

"We'll have to scale it. But... I can't climb." May embarassed said.

"That's fine get on."

May blushed,
"Come again?" She studdered.

"Get on my back. I can climb down from her. piece of cake."

"I... I couldn't... I'm much to heavy! And I don't want to trouble you!"

"Oh, May. I'll be fine. Now climb on he said motioning to his back.

"Uh.." She timidly got on Drew's back and Drew swung himself and May over the edge. May clung for dear life around Drew's neck and he kept his left arm around her legs.

"It's okay. You can open your eyes now." May timidly opened her eyes and the pair slowly decended.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
"We're lost arn't we." Asked Max sarcasticly.

"Yup." Our two other special heroes, Tracey and Brock answered.

"Aren't we supposed to be headed for town?"

"Yup."
~~~~~~
Misty looked into the room. It was so beautiful. It had a mini kitchen half with green marble floors and counters and walls and the other half was... get this... a swimming pool.

"It goes down to ten feet." keuyu told her.

Above the pool was a loft with couches and a huge Jukebox. Did I mention that two walls were windows looking out over the water Pokemon and the third was a giant Tv? Hm... must of slipped my mind. XD

"Wow... This is so... much... I love it! Thank you!" She said hugging Keuyu.

"Anything for you, Mi." He said as Misty released him.

"Thank you once again, but could I please go back to Ash now? In case he wakes up and doesn't know where he is."

"Of course, Mi. You may go back to your boyfriend. I'll leave you two alone. I'm sure my... our assistant need help at the gym," He sighed,
"George never was very good."

Misty turned bright red as Keuyu took her out of her room and to the elevator.

"He... He's not my boyfriend! I... I..."

Keuyu put up his hand,
"Just pullin' your leg. Here we are." The elevator dinged as they reached the first foor.

"Oh... Um, thanks Keu. bye!" She said, skipping out of the elevator and into Ash's room and sitting down.

"Lucky Ash." Keuyu said smiling. The elevator doors closed and he punched in 2.

I'm loving this chapter! Max is so hilarious! I just ADORE him to death! (Kay I admit it I love all the guys to death!) Please leave a review! Thanks!
Ash or Keuyu? Hmmm. PM Me and tell me who you want to end up with Misty. Who do you like? I'll put the results on l8er!Anyway, please don't ask for more narration and less talk because I'm trying to add more of that. If you just cant stand it, I've got one solution. DONT read it. Anyway!

Once again a pretty darn good chapter. The info-stat thing at the beginning was informative; I hadn't a clue Joy Jr. was so young. Thanks for adding that in, and that map-out of the sleeping arrangements.

Misty seems to have turned more towards the perfect side of life...makes one wonder what happened to her to have given her the opportunity and skills to be so good so fast.

Also, I wonder what the design is for the contests and the final competition, seeing that yours is dramatically different from what the anime has. Perhaps a bit of info next chapter, or something?

Wow, you certainly improved from the last time I've read your chapters! You're getting much better with the plotline since it's very unique. ^^

I loved all of the shippy moments, especially the one when Ash and Misty knocked Tracey with the traditional mallet. XD When Ash was getting the buttons for Misty, I couldn't help but go "aww!"

I think Keuyu is trying to hook up with Misty but that's just me. I also think that Ash will get super jealous of him saying compliments to Misty. ^^ I'm going to enjoy that. ^_~

Anyway, I haven't noticed the lines of Furuba but I love the manga! ^^

Can't wait for the next chapter and keep at it!

~~*Mist*~~

Thank you. So very much! I too adored the shippy moments! Ahhh! My friend, (who doesn't have an account) called me screaming and squealing about how shippy it was! (Thanks Micaela!) I think I'm falling for Keuyu and Ashy. X] hehehe! Isn't Keu just the sweetest? Princely even! As soon as I get a third page I'm gonna start chapter 8.
Sorry that we haven't met "Kisa" (Sheath) yet but you kind of get a clue who she is. (I'm just going to finish chapter 8 now)

Bisbald!


Ash and Misty parts
*What the...?* he tucked her long tresses behind her ear.
*O yeah... she fainted...* He hesitantly put his bare arm around her waist (in the sleeping bag)

Ash took her shaking hand, noticing how cold it was.

"C'mon Ash." Ash hopped on behind Misty and put his arms around her waist.

She began to sob and laid her head on Ash's chest

She took Ash from Keuyu and sat him down in front of her, laying his head on her chest. She put her arms around his waist

other shippyness

"So, Princess Mi, would you like to go see your suite?" He said bowing.

"It would be my pleaseure to do whatever you want, or somthing, right?" He said, offering her an arm. Misty took his arm and Keuyu led her out of the lobby and into an elevator

"Are you ready, my Belle Mi?"

Misty nodded and Keuyu took her hand and with the other, he pushed open the doors.

Keuyu took her hand,
"I painted it myself. I hope you like it."

"I... I do... It's lovely..."

"I... this took me awhile to paint so... I was hoping you'd like it in your room.

"Door one or door two?" Asked Keuyu bowing.

Yay shippy!

Once again Bisbald!

YAY! 3 pages!!!!!!!!!

For the final time Bisbald!
Anybody ready for chapter 9? Hahaha! Here we go!
This is like really between pg and pg13. Again, no swearing.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Chapter 9

"Ash?" Misty had been asking the same question for hours.

*I wonder where Keu is. I wonder how long it's been. I wonder how the gym work is going. Is Keu going to have me help alot? Can I go back with Ash and the others?* She yawned. It had already become dark outside

*I'm getting sleepy...*

"I have to stay away!" She cried, totally disorinted.

*I... what.... time... I hope Ash'll be okay...* Her head nodded and her eyelids were heavy.

*I can't fall asleep. I wonder where my friends are....* Before she knew it she had fallen asleep in the uncomfortible wooden chair. Suddenly her body crumpled and she, still unconcious with tiredness, fell onto Ash's sleeping body. Just then, Keuyu walked in seeing ash and Misty.

*Maybe i should move them... Nah... This is too sweet... They're such a cute couple. Lucky* He thought, quietly closing the door on the way out and walking down the hallway. He glanced at his watch.

10:30 pm.

"Wow," He said to no one in particular,
"Time sure flies when you're battling and searching all around town for Misty's friends."

He exited the elevator and walked into the lobby,
"Sorry guys, but Ash and Misty are... busy at the moment. But allow me to show you to your rooms for the night. Follow me."
Brock, Tracey, Max and the two Joys followed him into the /cramped/ elevator. Keuyu bent down to Joy Jr.

"You must be little Joy," He whispered smiling,
"I'll show you where Ash is and you can take a look at him." The elevator dinged and Keuyu took Joy's hand,
"Follow me, Joy."

Joy followed him, accompionied by the rest, to the room.
"Uh, just Joy can come in here. I'll show you to your rooms now," He said, pushing Brock, Tracey, Max and Nurse Joy back into the elevator.

"See you later sweetie!" Called Nurse Joy.

"Yeah. Bye."

Joy timidly opened the door and almost instantly she had to hold back a squeel.
*Awww! How cute!*
She sat down on the wooden chair and stared at them, with Misty's head on Ash's chest.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
"Um, so you're that guy Ash was talking about, Keoooyu?" Asked Tracey.

"Yes. Mi and I have been friends since we were little," He turned to Brock,
"You are the rock trainer from Pewter, am I correct?"

"Well, I don't mean to get a swelled head, but..."

"You already have a huge one!" Max finished and then burst out laughing. Keuyu chrouched down next to Max,
"Ah, you must be Max. You're just as cute as she said you were. She wrote about all of you so much!"

"Did she say I was cute?" Max jumped up and grabbed Tracey and Brock by the earlobes and hanging like that.

"Ow! Ow! Not the ear! NOT THE EAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

Sweatdrop.

"So, where is this May I've heard so much about?" Keuyu asked after Max let go of Tracey and Brock.

"I don't know. They were going to look for Team Rocket and you found us before we could go look for them." Explained Tracey, tenderly rubbing his ear.

"I'm sure they'll be fine." Said Keuyu smiling a general 1,000,000,000 smile.

This will be your, and your doughter's room, Miss Nurse Joy." Said Keuyu, opening a set of double doors on the seventh floor.
"There are two special rooms on each floor. Your room, Miss Joy, has all the research you've ever dreamed of and more." Nurse Joy walked into the room. It was divided into two sides, both with king sized beds. One side, furnished in yellow and had a small sauna in the center and shelves upon shelves of beautiful porcelain dolls wearing dresses of every color. The walls were glass and hanging from the ceiling was a huge tv. Joy Jr's side. On Nurse Joy's side, the walls were bookshelves full of every book you can imagine. That side was draped with silvers. Her bed was huge and roung and there was a small tv set up showing security cameras from her Pokemon certre.

"It's... so beautiful!" Said Nurse Joy, sitting down on the bed.

"Good. You can wait here, I'll bring your daughter by later."

Keuyu turned to the others and took them out,
"Max, this is your room." Said Keuyu, shoving open two more doors. Inside was a huge bed and a little bed for his Caterpie. The room was all orange and dark purple. His favorite colors. On one wall there had to be at least eight tvs and there was a big computer with a ton of programs.

"THIS IS AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!" Cried Max as he jumped head first onto his bed, looking up to see a roof made of glass.

"Good. Oh, by the way, there's an intercom system. You'll figure how it works. Later!"

Keuyu took Tracey and Brock out of Max's room and brought them to the eight floor.

"Brock, you and Drew will be sharing a floor." said Keuyu opening his doors. Inside the whole place was made of beautiful stones. Jems and jewls and granite and limestone. It was gorgeous. His bed had light purple covers and there was a jacuzzi in the middle of the room.

"Brock, if you go through that door, there's a whole room dedicated to all the lovely ladies you've met. Yes, Misty wrote about every single one.

Brock ran through (literally through) the doors and started drooling,
"Megan! Luchestia! Jane! Joy! Jenny! Ren..."

Sweatdrop

"Whatever" Tracey said as he followed Keuyu out of that room.

"You and May share the ninth floor..." a bright red light and a faint beeping noise sounded.

"What's that?" asked Tracey.

"Oh nothing," Keuyu pulled a remote out of his pocket,
"Someone just challenged me at the gym. I've gotta run! Chou!" He sad running back in the elevator, leaving Tracey all alone.

"I wonder what kind of room he has for..." He opened the doors.
"Me..." Two whole walls of Tracey's room were photographs of every Pokemn imaginable, even ones you and I haven't seen. The other two walls, well one was a window and the other was a giant chalkboard.There was also a large easal and a whole bookshelf filled with supplies. The colors of the room were rather plain though. Lotts of Greens.
*Just what I like*
~~~~~~~~~~~~
Piccachu lazily opened it's eyes. He was in a firmilliear glass case and looking into the /evily nasty/ face of Jessie. He sat up,
"Picca! picca chu! He cried, trying to zap the case. As always it didn't work.

*Where is Ash? Misty?*

"Picca! Chu! Piccachuuuuuuuu!" Mewouth walked up.

"What's it saying, Mewouth?" Asked Jessie irritibly looking at the rodent.

"Piccachu! Picca picca chu chu!" Mewouth thought for a second,

"He says he wants Ash and Mwisty. and to wet him owtta 'dere."

"You mean he's whining."

"Ohhohoho!" James cried from the side of the Mewoth ballon.
"Headquaaaaaaaarters! Dead ahead!"

"Goodie!" Cried Jessie,
"We'll give the Boss Piccachu and get a big raise!"

"And big amounts of food!" James cried.

"Ya know what da Boss'll say?"

"What? What will he say?!"

"Hwe'll say, 'Becwase Mewoth and de others browt me 'dis wittle Piccachu, I have all de electricity I need for my big pwan to wown all the rare Pokemown in da world! I'm gwonna gwive dem a big waise!"

"Yay! Raise!" Jessie cried.

"Don't count your raise yet! We're still a couple miles away!"
Jessie sank down,
"Darn and just when we get a break from those pesky twerps!"
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
"You okay back there, May?" Drew asked. May opened her eyes. She just wanted to get to the bottom of the cliff.

"Yeah. I'm okay." Her arms had become numb and her legs ached but she wasn't about to complain. She glanced over Drews shoulder. his right hand, that he had been climbing with all these hours, was bleeding.

"Drew! Your hand!"
He grunted,
"I'm fine... really. Don't worry about me..."

"Top right now Drew! You're hurt! Please!"

He siged,
"Fine. Look down and tell me if we're coming to a ledge." May looked down.

"There's a ledge about three feet down."
"How wide's it?"

"I don't know. Wide enough to sit and rest on." Drew's foot rested on the small ledge. He slowly took his other foot and tested the ledge,

"It's solid enough." he carefully turned and set May down. She groaned,
"Ow. I'm so stiff." She said stretching.

Drew loked at his hand. It had numerous cuts and was bleeding continuously. But he couldn't let May worry.

"How's your hand?" Asked May.

He hid it behind hs back,
"I'm fine, really! It's just a little scrape is all." She took his arm and he brought his hand out from behind his back.
"Holy...! You're... you.. here!" She said, pulling her bandana out of her hair. she wrapped his hand in it,
"How does that feel?"

*It still hurts like heck but it's better.*
"It's fine." he looked down and sighed,
"still like thirty feet left. hop on."

May turned red,
"I couldn't! Your hand's already red with blood! I couldn't make you suffer any more!" An awkward silence materialized,
"Why are you doing all this? Why not just give up? And why do you insist on carrying me when you're hurt so badly?"

"Because of you, May." He said calmly.

"Me? Why?" Asked May, becoming red again.

Drew thought about it,
"Because I don't want you to get hurt. You're important to me and I don't want anything to happen to you." But what he was really thinking was,
*Because I love you May, that's why.*
May again got on his back and they climbed down further,
*I love you Drew.*
~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Back in the gym, Little Joy still sat, watching them. She looked at her digital watch,

11:36 pm.

Misty woke up on Ash's warm chest. She slowly opened her eyes, seeing she was half on top of Ash and noticing Joy Jr. patently sitting on the wooden chair. She got to her knees,
"Joy, what are you doing here? Does your mother know?" Joy nodded,
"Your friend, Mr. Keuyu found us, along with Mr. Beock, Mr. Tracey, and Max and brought us back here. He brought everybody else to their rooms but had me stay here in case you woke up so I could check on Ash. And Nurse Joy isn't my real mother." Misty froze,
"What do you mean, 'Not your real mother?'"
Joy sighed,
"You see, Nurse Joy doesn't want anybody to knoe but I suppose I can trust you. When I was little I lived in Peroiea. This mean man was trying to buy out the city but no one would sell. So instead, he blew up the whole city."
Misty gasped.
"My mother and I were in the gardens and I was playing with some little baby Pokemon, including my ladyba. There were some herdes of Torox nearby and when they heard the explosions, they stampeded. My ladyba took me into the sky, but mother was trampled. When she awoke she didn't remember me. She had amnesia. I tried to stop her, but she just ran away, out of sight. For a few days, Ladyba helped me find food and then Nurse Joy came with some rescuers to see if there were ny injured Pokemon to help. Instead she found me. I told her my story, but she just said that I should never tell it again. She adopted me and called me her own. I never went against her, because when she found me I was so little. My name's not even Joy."

"It isn't? Asked Misty.

"Nope. My real name is Jane but Nurse Joy makes me pretend to be Joy jr, you know like I'm really her own kid. But someday I want to find my real famly. I already know one of them."

"Really? who?"

"Nurse Mary is my real cousin. Her mother was my mother's sister, Nurse Jane. But My real family are people doctors. I'm going to become one too!"

"Is that so?" Asked Misty, taking in every word the girl said.

"Yup! As soon as I turn nine I can go and live with Nurse Jane and Nurse Mary! I wanna find a cure for amnesia! So someday, when I find Mom, I can remind her about everything!" And then I'm changing my name to Nurse Jane!"

Misty smiled,
"That's a really... interesting story, Jo... I mean Jane."

Joy, I mean Jane (AHH Name nightmare!) Yeah, Jane smiled.
"Thanks-"

"Piccachu!" Both of the girls jumped as Ash sat up. He breathed heavily,
"Wh... where am I? Misty? Where did all the flying Pokemon go?"

"Ash! Don't ever scare me like that again!" Misty cried, throwing her arms around him,
"Woah, hold on Where are we and why's Joy here?"

"My name's Jane!"

"Jane?"
Misty sighed,
"Story later Ash. One of the Pokemon in the sky zapped you and you fell of Draga. Keuyu found us and brought us here, to his gym."

"We're in a gym? I've gotta challenge... Oh..." He had almost forgotten for a seconf that Picachu wasn't with him.

"Jane has to check you, then we can go."

Jane (Joy whatever!) took a stethascope out of her pocket (convienent) and put it on Ash's chest,
"Please breath deeply, and take that air mask off." Ash took the mask off and did what Jane told him to do. he breathed deeply, He stood and moved himself. He told her he was fine and nothing felt out of place (accept what he was doing).

Keuyu walked in,
"Oh good, Misty, you're awake. You too, Mr. Ketchum."

"Awake?" Ash asked.

"Yeah. Misty fell asleep and..." Misty ran over to him and put her hand over his mouth,

"heheh... Keuyu, why don't we show Jane and Ash to their rooms?" Misty said, sweatdropping as she removed he hand.

"As you wish, my beautiful princess." He said offering her an arm (which she took)

*Jane?* Thought Keuyu

*Princess? What the? Who the heck does he think he is?* Ash thought, stuffing his hands in his pockets and following them.

*This is so nice! Yay!* Thought Joy

*This is wonderful! My best friends in the whole wide world are together at last!* She slowed her pace and as Ash was pssing she grabbed his arm and pulled it out of his pocket and took his hand. He looked down at her, slightly blushing. She smiled back up with him.

*Yes, I truly am happy*

Miss Misty! Why dont you hear me calling Master! Here I am in your cloak but you are far too busy to notice! Please! The Pokemon are all in danger! We are in danger! Please!

"This is your room Ash." Said Keuyu opening the door. Ash looked into the room. It was draped with blue and red. Off to the edge of the room was a big bed pilied high with brand new comforters. Th room was hexigontal so there were six walls. On the first wall was all the pictures and information about Tracey and Brock. Every Pokemon caught. Every place they went. Everything. On the second wall was a whole history of May and Max. The ribbons May won, the things Max did, everything. The next three wall wern't walls at all. They were windows. In the middle were doors out to the balcony,
"oh yeah, since You and Misty will be sharing a floor, your balconies are kinda... connected with a gate." Keuyu said, smiling.
Anyhow, The next wall was dedicated to Misty. Ash walked over to it.
"There's a poll on who's gonna end up with Misty? And I'm the number one choice?" Misty turned bright red,
"K... Keu... Where did you get this?"
He shrugged,
"My secretary Calirianialajiliagarlianiachubiria, we call her Cali, she's a huge fan of yours.That was online."
"Eh... heheheh..." They turned to the last wall. It was covered, litterall covered in Ash. Where he met up with Misty, where his first Pokemon was caught. how many Pokemon her caught, who he met, where he went, and even all the girls that fell for him.
"Wow. I never knew that I had this many fans," Said Ash, staring at all the copies of the fan mail that never go to him,
"I wonder why these never got through."
Misty sweatdropped,
"Uh... Maybe someone didn't want you to get a swelled head and... uh..." Keuyu got it. She had torn up all those love letters,
"Uh... Uh... Ash, Misty... should we round up your friends and go search for May and Dew?"
"That's Drew." Said Ash, not taking his eyes away from the Ash wall. Misty pulled him away from the wall by the hand... but maybe a little too hard... She pulled him, face first into her, causing both of them to fall over
`0```0``````00``````0
/|---/|\ then |-\ then 0_\__ then 00__ Ash was on top of Misty and had his face in her shirt.
"I'm so sorry Ash!" Misty cried as Ash got up.
"Oh! Uh, no, I'm sorry. C'mon let's go. May and Drew might need our help" he said helping her up by the hand and leading her out of there.

"You too go ahead. I'll see if Joy.. Uh... Jane... and Brock, Tracey and Max wanna come." Said Keuyu, taking his leave and heading up to his guest's rooms.

"Uh.. actually..." Ash started as Keuyu closed the door,
"Nevermind..." The elevator dinged as it opened and Misty walked in, not realizing they were still holding hands. With Ash's right hand he pressed 1b and the /corny/ elevator music began.

Ash turned and glanced down with a dazed look at Misty. She looked back up at him. As their glances met, they both blushed and looked away from each other. They elevator dinged again and opened to a moonlit yard that led into the forest.

"Misty... um..."

"Yeah Ash?"
Ash blushed,
"Uh, Nothing! I... uh... should we fly on one of your Pokemon or walk?" Misty shrugged and looked around,
"Well... if Team Rocket has a hideout somewhere in the forest around here, grunts will be all over. If we fly, they'll all be able to see us. If May and Drew are in trouble, we can't afford to risk alot of Rockets seeing us. We should walk and..."

"Nine! Ninetails!" Misty and Ash both jumped as Perogi snuck up behind them,
"Dont do that!"

"Return Perogi." Said Misty opening her cape with her left hand and returning the giant Ninetails.

"C'mon Mist." Said Ash lightly puling her by the hand.

Misty's song
Out here in the quiet of the night, Beneath the stars and moon...
We both know we've got somethin' on our minds...
We won't admit, but it's true.

You look at me, I look away.

I wanna tell you what I'm feeling, but I don't know how to start...
I wanna tell you, but now I'm afraid that you might break my heart
Oh, why should anything so easy, ever be so hard to do?
I wanna tell you what I'm feeling, and to say that...
I love you.

I practice all the things that I could say, Line by line, every word...
I tell myself today could be the day, But every time, I lose my nerve...

I look at you, you look away...

I wanna tell you what I'm feeling, but I don' know how to start...
I wanna tell you, but now I'm afraid that you might break my heart!
Oh, why should anything so easy, ever be so hard to do?
I wanna tell you what I'm feeling, and to say that...
I love you.

Why, why do you turn away?
It must be, you're afraid like me...
I try, but I can't pretend that I don't feel for you the way I do!
Can't you see?

I wanna tell you what I'm feeling, but I don' know how to start
I wanna tell you, but now I'm afraid that you might break my heart!
Oh, why should anything so easy, ever be so hard to do?
I wanna tell you what I'm feeling, and to say that...
I love you.

I wanna say...

But now I'm afraid...

I wanna tell you what I'm feeling, but I
don't know how to start
I wanna tell you, but now I'm afraid that
you might break my heart
Oh, why should anything so easy, ever be so hard to do?
I wanna tell you what I'm feeling, and to
say that...

I love you.

Keuyu smiled from the window then headed to Brock's room.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Drew and May got to the bottom of the cliff,
"May, you still okay?" Asked drew and he knelt down and carefully set her down,
"Yeah... I... guess... How's your hand?"

He tenderly unwrapped his hand,
"It stopped bleeding. That's good..." May grabbed his wrist and pulled his hand up to her face and looked closely at it,
"I'm so sorry Drew! I didn't mean for you to get hurt! I should of climbed down for myself... I..." Drew set his unharmed left hand on her shoulder,
"I'ts no big deal. Really."
May looked up toward the sky. It had become late and the sky was getting dark.
"I hope our friends find us before it gets pitch black out here..."

"We should find shelter. That looks like a pretty abandoned place. C'mon." He said getting up and heading towards the cement building. May followed him.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
"Here we are, Jessie!" James cried, awking Jessie and Mewoth as they floated over the base.

"Picca! CHU!" Piccachu yelled for the final time as it tried to break the glass.

"Silly rodent!" Jessie said, stretching.

"We'll have to put him in the jail... I mean our guesthouse! With that cute little brat... what was her name?"
"Cindy?" James guessed.

"Sevel?" Asked Meowth

"Shath? O well. Land here, James!"

"Yeah, Jimmy! Right here!" James landed the Ballon and Jessie picked up Piccachu in the case as Meowth jumped out.

At the same time, May and Drew were sneaking towards the very same cement jail, or should I say "guesthouse."

Keuyu knocked on Brocks door,
"Yo, Brock! Misty and Ash went to go look for May Drew and Piccachu. I'm gonna go follow them. Are ya with me?"

Silence.

"Hello?"

"Must... look... ah... pretty Joy... Kafra..." Cames Brocks voice from inside. Keuyu sweatdropped,
"Guess he's out..." He got in the elevator and pressed nine and came to Tracey's room,

"Hey Tracey I'm going with Ash and Misty to look for Team Rocket. Are you gonna come with me?"

"Nope. I'm pooped. Wake me up in time for breakfast." Again Keuyu sweatdropped. He didn't want to worry Max, Nurse Joy, or Jane so he decided he would go after them on his own. He got back in the elevator and pressed C3 and the elevator opened in the garage. He put on his helmet and gloves and got on his motorcycle (a lighter smaller one, but it rockes!) and rode into the forest.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~
"Ash I cant see anything. Where are you?" Misty said, groping around in the pitch black forest. It had been awhile since she had let go of Ash's hand.

"I'm over here, Mist. Are you okay?"

"Yes... I'm fine..." Little did she know that she was about to walk off the edge of a cliff.

Her eyes became accustomed to the light. Before they were in the starlight, then a few steps into the forest and everything had gone dark.

Ash blinked and squinted hard at where Misty's voice was coming from. She was about to walk off the cliff.

"Ash?"

"Mist! Don't move!" Ash said as he began to carefully walk towards her, making sure not to get too close to the edge.

"What is it Ash?" Misty said, putting her right foot down Only to find that there was nothing for her foot to land on,
"Ash!" Misty cried as she began to fall.

"Misty!" Ash cried running towards her. It seemed for a second that time stopped.
*No! Misty! Not you! Anybody other than you!* Ash screamed in his head.

*Wha? Ash! Help!* Misty tried to hold her balance but she kept on falling. Ash was frantic. He grabbed a overhanging tree branch and lunged forward towards Misty. He grabbed her around her waist (his arm inside the cape) and pulled her to his chest.
"M...Misty? Are you alright?" He asked shakily taking a breath, his left foot on the edge and his right foot hanging off the edge. Misty looked down.
"O my... Don't look down..." She shyly put her arms around his waist and her head on his chest. She could feel his hart beat fast in her ear and he could feel her heart on his side.

*How the heck am I gonna get back up.* Ash breathed deeply and looked back up at the branch. But he didn't see what he wanted. The branch was breaking...
*No! Well, at least Misty's safe ... for now... I have to get her up there!*

crack. Ash tightened his grip around Misty's waist.

"That's not a good sound, is it?" Asked Misty sarcasticly.

"I'm going to swing you up there, so you won't fall. Can you reach the edge?" Misty shivered,
"I... I'm not scared... but I rather not fin out the hard way..." there was another crack from the limb. Misty whimpered and clung to Ash. His foot slipped and he chrashed into the side of the cliff, getting the breath knocked out of him. Now the only thing holding them up was the splitting branch.
*If we're going to die... I guess I should tell him...*
*If we don't get back up soon, I'm... going to tell her...* Ash looked around. franticly looking for an escape. The cliff that they were against was flat until about fifteen feet over. There were no more overhanging branches and no rocks to grab,

"Mist, I need you to call out a Pokemon from your cape."
She began to cry as she shook her head,
"No! I can't... I can't... I don't want to le go!"
"You have to!" He deeply breathed in and said calmly,
"I've got 'cha, Misty, just call out Pokemon and then we can get outta here."
"I can't!" She cried,
"The lockballs... they really have alot of force when you open them. It'd knock us off of here..."
The branch broke.
"Misty! Jump!"
Misty couldn't jump. She was paralyzed in fear where she was.
*I really am going to di-" Suddenly they stopped falling. Misty wanted to open her eyes but she just couldn't. Misty was pulled up over the cliffside and into Ash's lap.
"Misty. It's okay. You can open your eyes now." She slowly opened her eyes to find herslef in Ash's arms and lap.
"Don't keep the lady all to yourself. Are you alright Mi?" Keuyu got down on his hands and kneeled and looked her in the eye.

"Y...yes... I'm... fine..." She lifted her hand to wipe her eye but found it was shaking.
"That's good. I'm so glad I found you two. Or you'd be squashed." Keuyu said smiling.
"Can you call out one of yout Pokemon Mist?" Ash asked, still holding onto the shaking girl.
"Uh....... uhhuh... C... C'mon out, Draga" With her hnd, now still, she opened her cape and Dragonaiere appeared. She carefully got out of Ash's lap and climbed on Draga. Ash climbed on behind her and Keuyu threw his helmit by his bike and jumped on.

A very good chapter you have herek, Misteria Pearl. It was pretty good.


"You okay back there, May?" Drew asked. May opened her eyes. She just wanted to get to the bottom of the cliff.

"Yeah. I'm okay." Her arms had become numb and her legs ached but she wasn't about to complain. She glanced over Drews shoulder. his right hand, that he had been climbing with all these hours, was bleeding.

"Drew! Your hand!"
He grunted,
"I'm fine... really. Don't worry about me..."

"Top right now Drew! You're hurt! Please!"

He siged,
"Fine. Look down and tell me if we're coming to a ledge." May looked down.

"There's a ledge about three feet down."
"How wide's it?"

"I don't know. Wide enough to sit and rest on." Drew's foot rested on the small ledge. He slowly took his other foot and tested the ledge,

"It's solid enough." he carefully turned and set May down. She groaned,
"Ow. I'm so stiff." She said stretching.

Drew loked at his hand. It had numerous cuts and was bleeding continuously. But he couldn't let May worry.

"How's your hand?" Asked May.

He hid it behind hs back,
"I'm fine, really! It's just a little scrape is all." She took his arm and he brought his hand out from behind his back.
"Holy...! You're... you.. here!" She said, pulling her bandana out of her hair. she wrapped his hand in it,
"How does that feel?"

*It still hurts like heck but it's better.*
"It's fine." he looked down and sighed,
"still like thirty feet left. hop on."

May turned red,
"I couldn't! Your hand's already red with blood! I couldn't make you suffer any more!" An awkward silence materialized,
"Why are you doing all this? Why not just give up? And why do you insist on carrying me when you're hurt so badly?"

"Because of you, May." He said calmly.

"Me? Why?" Asked May, becoming red again.

Drew thought about it,
"Because I don't want you to get hurt. You're important to me and I don't want anything to happen to you." But what he was really thinking was,
*Because I love you May, that's why.*
May again got on his back and they climbed down further,
*I love you Drew.*

Oh, I loved this part it's so sweet and lovely.


*Princess? What the? Who the heck does he think he is?* Ash thought, stuffing his hands in his pockets and following them.
Is he jelous? YES!!, he is so jealous. Love it!


Miss Misty! Why dont you hear me calling Master! Here I am in your cloak but you are far too busy to notice! Please! The Pokemon are all in danger! We are in danger! Please!
Is this the title, or what?

I have another question, why did you put Misty's song?


*If we're going to die... I guess I should tell him...*
*If we don't get back up soon, I'm... going to tell her...* Ash looked around. franticly looking for an escape. The cliff that they were against was flat until about fifteen feet over. There were no more overhanging branches and no rocks to grab,
Too bad, they didn't confesed they feeling. I hope they'll do it soon.

One last thing, could you PM me when you finish next chapter, please? Ok, this time I had a lot of question, I hope you can answer them soon.

1 Thank you very much Misty_aquamaster!
2 I adore the May x Drew but I love Misty x Ash (and fine I like Misty x Keuyu too) I think it's cute too
3 It's so cute when Ash is jealous. :D:D
4 It a Pokemon (not telling what 1 yet) from inside her cloak. Tries to talk to her but she can't hear it.
5 I just adore Mistys song and I think it fit pretty well there. It kind of says what they're feeling and I thought it would be pretty cute when both are thinking the same thing in their heads.
6 I cant wait to write about it. :D

Sure I'll pm ya. be glad to.

I love Misty's song, too. I just don't know which of the four versions I love more. Yeah, I didn't thought of what they would be thinking; it really fits perfectly. And thanks!

Interesting...quite a few things happened here, no?

I wonder how much Misty's lack of understanding will affect the danger the Pokémon are in...and what that danger is in the first place. *puzzles* I presume our Kisa-person is the one whose name was scrambled by Team Rocket? Sounds like she could help Pikachu out when they reach TR Headquarters.

The 'w' you added to some words Meouth said slightly confused me, but I think I can decipher it's accent now.

Keep up the great work! Later!

Thank you both so much! I'm sorry I haven't been updating for awhile, but my family's holding a big party and I'm spending all my time to prepare.
Gladdecease- my friend begged me to make him sound... I mean type funny. :D It'd sound kind of cute, though. Kinda like a little kid with a strange accent. Yes the Kisa person (Sheath) was the poor soul Team Rocket scrambled. I drew her and I'd just like to squeeze her! She's sooooooo adorible. Big eyes and She's be about... like 8. SWEETYPIE! I want her as a little sister! (I Think I'd b a good big sister0
Dragontaimer99- Thankee! I'll put the next chapter on here (and finish chapter 9) right away

I just moved chapter 10 down there. Way down there.

OMG! I'm freaked out. I'm here a couple weeks early in boarding school and nobody's here. I locked myself in my room but I feel really creepy! Like someone's coming to get me. PLEASE SOMEBODY PM ME! AHHH!

He woke me up playing chopsticks when he could of al least played some Bach. Sorry about the Barradie / Barradae thing. Mini typo. oops :D:D and here come Luffy and Ash come running up,

Luffy- "Well hi there! You're really pretty! You look like Nami!" *Tilts head*

Ash- "And Mistyyyyyyyyyyyyy" *Starts to drool*

Me- *Grinns and glomps them* "You're so cute!"

um... i think I'm gonna erase chapter 10 from up there and bring it down here. think that'd be good?
Fine You asked 4 it! Here's chapter 10! Yay!
Chapter 10... the usual. pg-pg13. big whoop.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Chapter 10

"C'mon you rare little rat! In ya go!" Jessie said as she picked up Pikachu and jumped out of the basket.

"Giovanni's gonna give us a huge raise! Ah ha-ha!" James cried triumphantly as he too, with Meouth under his arm, jumped out and headed toward the little jail.

"Yea. As soon as we pwut 'dat litt'l pika in da jail, we should head ta hadquarters and get ar' weward."May and Drew were watching from behind a bush as our "favourite evil duo" entered the cement building.

"Look Drew! They've got Pikachu!" May hissed.

"Wait 'till they leave. Then we can free it." Drew whispered, craining his neck, trying to see through the doorway and see what TR was doing.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
"Here," Said Jessie, removing the exausted Pikachu out of the carrier and throwing him into a cell with a little green haired girl chained to the wall,
"Here's a little friend for you kid." Sheath opened her eyes as the two Rockets and the cat left,
"Hi... What's your name?" She asked the little yellow Pokemon,
"Pika! Pika chu!!!!"
She smiled,
"He... hello, little Pika. I'm Sheath. Do you have a trainer?"

"Chu! Pika chu picca!" She listened to it,
"Oh, I see. Ash Ketchum, ya say? Is he like your daddy? Who's your mommy?"

"Pi! PIKA CHU! Chu! Chu! Pika Pi pika!!"
Sheath grinned,
"Oh I get it. Ash is your trainer. And Misty's your friend. I'm glad you're here. I haven't had a friend since Mew Mew!" Pikachu looked around. The cell was insolated and had iron bars and Sheath was wearing iron handcuffs. If he even zapped a little, she's be hurt.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
"Kay, they're gone. Let's go May." Drew said standing and stretching. May got up and ran to the door, being followed by Drew.

Sheath spotted them,
"Pika," She whispered,
"Do you know them?"

"Chu! Pii KAH!"
"May and Drew?"

"C'mon!" Hissed May as she pulled Drew in.

"Pikachu!" May cried as she pulled Drew over to the cage in the middle of the room.

"Hello, May and Drew." May turned to see a tiny, pale green haired girl chained to the wall,

"Good Heavens! What happened to you?" May cried (soap opera like)

"Yeah and who are you and how do we know you?" Asked Drew in a drone voice. May punched him.

Sheath laughed,
"I'm sorry... Pika told me about you... I'm Sheath... or so they told me..."
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
"Should we feel bad thatf we didn't go with Keuyu to help find May, Drew and Pikachu?" Asked Tracey as he sat down in the den while Brock made a sandwitch.

"Nah." They both said in unison.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Misty, Ash and Keuyu flew on slowly, trying to find May and Drew,
"Wait I see somthing!" Keuyu cried from the back and pointing down. Ingeniously hidden by a huge cliff and some tall evergreen trees were five big cement buildings. Four were connected and the other was far off to the side.

"Down Draga! Land near that little building!" Draga obeyed Misty and steeply decented and landed next to the building.

"Good job! Return Draga!" Called misty as she recalled the Dragonaire.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
"Hello, Twerpette number two and... Who are you?" May and Drew spun around to find Jessie, Meouth and James blocking the door behind them.

"Drew! My name is Drew! And what are you doing here, Team Rocket?" Drew shouted.

"Hewo! This is owr hideowt, We showd awsk you 'dat!"

"Yeah, Twerpette, just 'cuz you bring your pretty little boyfriend here dowsn't mean a thing!"

"Team Rocket!" Jessie, James and Meouth turned to find three other twerps behind them.
Ash protectively put his arm out in front of Misty.

"Ah! We've cought two more lovebirds!" Cackled Jessie before TR cracked up and rolled around on the ground, busting a gut with laughter.

Ash winced and prepared for misty to get enraged and bring out the hammars but instead she just tuned really red avoided eye contact with Team Rocket,
"Ash..." She said, hessistantly putting her hands on his outstretched arm and gently pulling it down.
"Uh..."
Keuyu looked over Mistys head and saw the little green haired girl locked up,
"Sheathie?" The little girl looked up,
"Keu?" Keuyu pushed Ash away and trampled over Team Rocket and ran to the cage.
~~~~~~~
"Hey Brock." Brock looked up at Tracey from his "Teen Girl" magizine (Teen girl? Ok that's just strange. Ok. I guess i get the whle "Filled with teen girls but... uh... never mind...).

"Yeah?"

tracey blushed,
"I think I'm gonna ask Misty out when she gets back."

Brock snickered,
"If Ash doesn't finnaly get to her first." He mumbled.

"Was?" (What?)
"Nothing."
~~~~~~~~~~
"Sh... Sheath?" Misty asked, eyes wide
"Missy?" (Oh by the way, when Sheath went missing, she wasabout 4 and had lost her front teeth, so when she was that age, "Misty" wuld sound like "Missy.")
Misty trampled over team Rocket's faces and ran to the cage.
"Um, hello? What about us?" Yelled Team Rocket sitting up with foot marks inprinted all over their faces.
"Oh... yeah..." Said Misty, opening her cape,
"Come on out, Number sixty two! Go, Katina!

Hihi! It's me again, Well DUH! Ok, so I'm really sorry but I snuck some German in there ("Was?") So, you ask if I'm gonna keep going?

"Ja!" Oops... I mean Yeah! In the morning!
TschuB! Bisbald! (Sorry! Sorry!) BISBALD!

Hi! I'm back! I'm so sorry I haven't been on in awhile but I had this major headache and it turned out to be serious. I like lost completely all my sight for like four days, but I'm fine now. But Deo, I know what you mean about the storm thing. I was on vacation, and I was walking on a plain road. It was really raining and a TRUCK almost hit me. Then, a slowing car did hit me, I only recieved minor bruises, though. Don't worry. It was really scary though. thank you very much for the encouragement, it was really sweet! I'm going to get right on finishing this chapter and I'll try and be on every day I can be!

Here we go! Chapter 10 continued!
"Go Katina!" Misty cried as she opened her cape. A bright light aurrounded them and a pure white Ninetails apperared.

"Ni! Ninetails!"

"Back up Sheathie! Use Aurora beam on the cage first, Katina!" And aura of power swirling with color exploded. When the smoke cleared, the cage door had almost completely disintegrated. Sheath stood compleatly unharmed cowering against the wall. Misty ran to her and knelt down beside her,
"You okay, Sheathie?" She asked, petting th little girls hair. She nodded.

"Pi! PIKACHU!" Pikachu cried as he ran into Ash's arms.

"Hey buddy!" Ash turned to team rocket,
"Pikachu! Thunder bolt!" Electricity shot from the mouse and zapped Team Rocket and sent them flying into the sky.

"We're blasting off again!" *ding noise* they dissapeared into the sky.

Keuyu ran over to Sheath and hugged her tight. A tear slid from his eye. He was finally reunited with his last reamaining family member. Misy backed away. At least they had ended up happy. She and her sisters had never grown competely together like that.

"Return Katina." She said without any energy whatsoever. Her ninetails returned.

"Great job Misty!" Ash caleld as he ran over to her. Instead of happines, though, he saw tears form in her eye. Before Misty knew what was happening, she was surrounded by Ash's arms. he hugged her and she laid her head on his chest. Maybe Ash didn't understand why Misty was crying, but he couldn't STAND to see a girl cry, espescially her.

*I just want to kiss her when she cries- WAIT! Did I think that?* Ash asked himself.

Misty lifted her head and looked up into Ash's choclatey brown eyes. As their gazes met something sparked. Misty and Ash had denied it for so long, but somehow, perhaps, they had grown closer than friends. Inside they genuinely loved each other. Maybe... Maybe it's inevitible that when two people get so close and spent so much together, that they fall in love. Everyody around them had known it would happen a LONG time before they did. (Heck I knew it as soon as I saw the second episode)

They both blushed hard and Ash gently get go of her waist and they turned away from each other. Keuyu frowned and then got an idea. Maybe Misty and Ash just needed a little help.

"Itruders!" Everyone turned to find a little purple haired, white skinned little girl pointing at them from the door. As soon as they looked at her she turned and ran.

"Wait!" Misty and May both cried at the same time as the girls ran after her.

"Wait up!" Misty shouted as she rounded the corner and persued the girl further. may was already tired. She sunk to her knees and breathed deeply as Misty sprinted after the little girl.

"Intruders! Intruders! INTRUDERS!" The girl called as she ran through the streets. Ash had picked up pikachu and was running after Misty. She and Ash had the most running expierence, since they were always running away... er towards danger.

"May! Drew plopped himself down next to her and put his hand on her shoulder.
"You okay?" She nodded and got up. Drew got up also and together they jogged towards... well towards Misty's shouting.

Keuyu picked up his little sister and put her on his back as he ran out the door. (Well, duh. She hadn't walked around for years and you expect her to run?)

"Sheathie! Do you know where to go?" He asked.
"Well, the guards and the Pokemon that came in kept talking about the 'Burgandy Hall' or somthing. They said it's where the 'Evil Master' reignes."
"Great! Do you know where to go?"
"I'm sorry... I don't know..."
"That's okay! Let's just find the others!" they (Keuyu) ran around and finally found May puffing along (I don't mean that in a bad way by the way, I mean I cant run for anything and I'm thin and trim) and Drew jogging along beside her, like he could go forty times faster than what he was going.

"Hi." Keuyu said as he slowed and jogged next to Drew and May.

"Hi." May said and she just plainly began to walk.

"You look tired. Are you in pain?" Sheath obliviously asked as the trio sweatdropped.
~~~~~~~~~~
"Intruders!" The purple haired girl called once again. Misty looked around her. She had been persuing the girl through streets lined with make-shift houses lining them, one right next to another. She was flabbergasted. It seemed these houses went on for miles and miles and she couldn't see any of it from anywhere in Keuyu's mansion! Now, it was useless to yell at the little girl to stop anymore, because it was obvious that that wouldn't soon happen.

"Yo! Misty!" Ash called as he ran up beside her.

"Pika! Chu chu!" pikachu also said from Ash's shoulder.

"intruders! Intruders! This is not a drill! INTRUDERS! Around them, people were rising and leaving their houses. All of them with T.R. logoed on their shirts and caps.

"Intruders!"
"Intruders!"
"Intruders!"
"Intruders!"

Men, women and childern all started to chase Misty and Ash.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Keuyu set Sheath down next to May.
"May, take care of Sheathie. Drew and I'll go find Misty and Ash." May nodded and took the little girl by the hand.

"Why don't we go wait where it's safe in the forest."

"Okay..."
~~~~~~~~

"Where do you think they are?" Keuyu asked Drew as they rounded a corner but quickly backed up as Misty and Ash sprinted full throttle past them, being chased by a huge crowd (mob, whatever)

"I think they're running at sixty miles an hour away from a Team Rocket mob towards some huge red and white building." He said, as he pointed up at the towering skyscraper.

"How come I can't see that from my mansion?"

"Who cares! We should get back to Sheathie and May to see if they're okay." Drew said as they turned around and ran back towards the forest.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
"Are they back yet?" Tracey nervously asked as he paced towards Brock for a millionth time.

"No." Brock said, not even looking up from his Teen Model magazine. (0_o)

"I think we should go out and look for them."

"Fine, said Brock getting up. I'll go so you don't break a hole through out host's million dollar floor (floor and roof)." Tracey sweatdropped.

"How do we get there? Tracey asked looking out the window for some trail or road or somthing.

"I think I have a way." Brock said *itty bitty slits of eyes gleaming*
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Misy tripped on her heavy cloak and fell. Immeadity Ash turned around and tried to help her up. But it was too late. The Team Rocket members had already caught up to them. Ash protectively put his arms around Misty as she sat up.

Just as Ash was about to give the command to have Pikachu thunder shock the crowd, he realized that there were mere childred there and he couldn't bring himself to order Pikachu to hurt them.

"You must go to Master."
"Master is judge, jury and exicutioner."
"Master."
"Master"
"Master" The people chanted. They pulled Ash and Misty to their feet and Ash took a hold of Misty's hand as she drew her cape closed, as to not let the people know she had hundreds of Pokemon with her. Misty and Ash both were curious to see exactly who where and what "Master" was.

The crowd let Misty and Ash to a huge gate and handed them off to three HUGE security guards.

"Intruders?"
"Intruders." The guards roughly took Misty and Ash by the arms and led them inside. those three big guards handed Ash and misty to two bigger guards who led them inside the main building.

"Go." One commanded, opening a door and forcing Misty and Ash through. the whole room was humongous. it had to be, alone, as big as a small house. Everything was draped in dark red and on a raised platform was a young man and a young woman sitting on two large, crimson thrones. The young man looked about sixteen and had dark red hair. He was dressed in dark red clothes and looked quite comfortible and in-charge. But his eyes... his green eyes had a blank look to them

The girl, meanwhile, looked to be about thirteen and really stressed. She had shortish smooth blue hair and was the only thing in the room dressed in blue. She was really pretty and had deep blue eyes

"You, I presume, are Ash Ketchum and Misy Waters." Said the young man as Misty and Ash nodded.

"Welcome to the Burgandy Hall.

How did you lie it? I hope you enjoyed it! As soon as someone replies, i'll put up chapeter 11!

;330;Read up to chapter seven. Don't report 'cos of Flygon, this is how I rate. OK, in terms of shipping this is good. But there are a lot of faults that make this fic not reach a high standard. They will be brought up by Mobius(The Salamence)

;359; I'm Cina, the ship reviewer of the gang. I LOVE THIS FIC! I'm not one for details, but in terms of shipping this rules. I won't do my K-I-S-S-I-N-G bit, since it's implied.

;373; Official reviewer and hater of Cina here. OK, length is good. Plot is superb. Shipping, well Cina's covered it, description,,
that's your problem. The description of Pokemon is atrocious. First rule of good fics is you describe, not just mention and expect the reader to know. Or use smilies. Smilies are banned. THe description is hat stops this being a great fic and leaves it as a mediocre ship. Sorry for harshity, but you asked SF to rte, and this is how we rate.

Mysteria Pearl
24th September 2005, 10:00 PM
Well thank you for the advice! Any help is well apriciated. I'll cut back on the smilies. Did i use smilies on chapter 1-7? I'll check. Anyway, Thanks once again for reviewing!

First things first. The Pikachu spellchecker is scanning your document.
Scanning...
Done. Gazillion mistakes found. Recommendation: Please use a word processor or spellcheck program. Otherwise, proofread.

Idiotproof Pikachu proofreader version 1.0 is scanning your document.
Scanning...
Done. Pokemon are neglected. Description is fine, considering every post has been read, though not very specific in some parts(like when Drew unwrapped his hand from May's bandanna you should mention the bandanna. Not everyone here has good memory or at least high enough standard to remember that May wrapped Drew's hand in her bandanna. And what happened to the bandanna anyway?)

Pikachu programs are tired. *Kicks them out of post*

Please cut back on the little plays it wasted a lot of my time trying to read through the entire 10 chapters. And your siggy could have it's size reduced by a lot if you cramp it together so that people like me can scroll through the fic easily.

And give it up for the final verdict.

;025; I wouldn't condemn it, and I think it's pretty nice. HOWEVER, PIKACHU IS NEGLECTED. Well it's your own choice but pokemon make it more interesting for example:
1)Taunting
2)getting involved in the shipping.
3)Being an idiot.
4)any other creative way you can think of, like(I thought of them first!) setting up a date, firing fireworks or something(Of course, only I the uber-class funky Pikachu could do but if you use it I don't mind, but please don't make the entire thing a one-man show[like one person doing the entire performance thingy])

Well the more characters the merrier right? And Mr. Creator. I want my box of Pikachu blend pokechow.

[/;025;]

Right got to feed the guy and of course sleep(it's 5 am on my side).

18312!

*Subscribes to thread*

P.S I still don't understand why I'm Mr random reviewer. S.F, tell me.

thank you for reviewing! I'm sorry I didn't have time to spellcheck, but it's the idea (thought) that counts, right? Okay. Maybe not. I'll re-check for my spellin mistakes and I'll try and make my sig smaller (tons of people's sigs are as big as mine and nobody ever seems to have a problem with it, take yours for example) Anyhoo, any advice is appreciated, Que Sera Sera!

;330;Finished reading up to date, but saw FTMP's post and had something to add before rating. FTMP is right, the Pokemon should be brought more into it. You've read my fic, so you'll already know I have already made both Pikachu and Ho-oh Pokeshippers, and Meowth as well. Here's some of the other Pokemon Pokeshippers:
Mewtwo, Rayquaza, Jirachi, Latios, Latias, Psyduck, Suicune, Celebi, Bulbasaur, Charizard, Squirtle, Politoed, Staryu, Togetic, Lugia, Onix, Geodude, Crobat, Forretress, Mew, Dewgong, Slowking, Unown, Larvitar, Gyarados, Milotic, Arbok, Weezing, Wobuffet, Cyndaquil, Totodile, Bayleef, Kingler, Tauros and Snorlax!
I know that's a lot, but they all appear, and they are all PokemonPokeshippers. It allows for a lot, and I mean A LOT of humour making Pokemon Pokeshippers, I mean, can you imagine Mewtwo as a Pokeshipper!?
Anyway, back to the rating, this is really quite good. The only flaws in it are stuff that Mobius will rate.

;359;This is one of the best shipping fics I've read. Unfortunatly, I've only read about 5 including SF's, since he doesn't see enough. Anyway, this is superb. I've already done the AM one, so know for MD one! May and Drew itting in a tree, K-I-S-S-I-N-G! The sooner the better to be honest.

;373; Still no award, 'cos in terms of actual fic rating, this is let down a lot by some easy to fix flaws. Just improve description of attacks and this will go up from a Vibrava fic to a Salamench in a heart beat. Interesting backplot though. Just fix attack description, and you'll be set.

Mysteria Pearl
19th November 2005, 1:48 AM
Hello everyone! Thank you so very much for waiting and being so kind and patient! As soon as I find my written notes, TONIGHT I will try and start typing it!

Jaquta- a very fancy sweet, kind of like a mini house

Just as a small reminder, Keuyu is pronounced KEY-OOH-YOU and Matuke is pronounced MAH-TOO-KAY. Oh, and Keshi is pronounced KEH-SHEE/SHI

Oh, and somthing else might be helpful. Have You ever seen Yu-Gi-h? Well, Matuke's voice would best match up with one of those characters; Noah Kiaba. And have any of you heard of "Sonic X?" Well, Keshi's voice just about matches that of Amy's.

Did you get, by now, why I've chosen the color burgandy for the story's text's color?

Ok here it comes!~~~~~~~~~~~

Btw, one again, I do NOT own Pokemon, Yu-Gi-Oh, Sonic X, or any of the characters in those animations nor in the fic. Well, I do own Keuyu and Sheathie, Matuke and Keshi and some other characters but none used in the real show

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Chapter 11- The Burgandy Hall

"Welcome to the Burgndy Hall."

Misty looked the young man up and down. He was very handsome, tall with dark red hair under a pure gold crown. His skin was as white as Misty's and was blemishless. And his eyes- They were of a deep cherry brownish red. The kind of cherry red that fine, expensive furniture is made of. But his eyes were... empty. totally empty. Not a single expression to be seen. It looked as if he was drained of any human emotion.

The boy's eyes narrowed,
"I am Matuke Haetaka, and this is my sister, Keshi Haetaka. You are now in my own little world. You see, This used to be the kind, sweet, peaceful, forgotton city of Ishaka but now, you see, I don't like Happy, kind, sweet, peaceful things, so, I took it over."

Matuke snapped his fingers and the first big guard entered and picked Misty up by the neck.

"Now than, you will do everything I say. Everything. Or else- well... My sister dear will have to deal with you." He looked over at the guard holding Misty and Misty herself and motioned for the guard to come closer.

"You're cute. I may just make you my queen." Boy did that strike a note in Ash's heart.

"Never! She'll never love you! She- I-" A bright blush crossed his face as he realized what he was about to say. He was about to say he- he loved her.

"Oh? What are you going to do?" Ash was silent. Meanwhile, Misty was struggling to breathe.

"You see, Keshi is in charge of law and punishment but I'm sure she wouldn't mind me taking this one small liberty. You dare defy me ONCE and I shall. hmm..." He snapped and he guard dropped Misty's limp body.
Ash ran over to her and laid her head on his chest. (AWWWW!)

"Misty? Misty? Are you okay?" Misty's eyes barely opened as she snuggled closer to Ash. Ash, in turn, turned brighter red.

"If you disobey me, I may just have to do away with Miss Water here. Or..." He snapped once again and the second guard brought in the little girl that Ash and Misty had chased,

"OR, I'll do away with one child of this village every hour that you are missing-"

"But-" Ash started to protest.

"But nothing! Guards! Lock them up-"

"Please, wait brother!" Keshi spoke for the first time,

"Please! Um- allow them to live freely! There is an empty Jaquta in the North Wing!"

"Fine." Matuke said with a glare. With that he waved his hand.

"I take you. You come." Said the first guard. Ash picked Misty up ( XD) and followed the big man.
~~~~

"WHERE THE STINKIN HECK ARRRRRE THEY!" May shouted

"INTRUDERS!" A little girl shouted from their behind.

"Not again." May said as she slapped her forehead.

"Come on out, Bulbasaur!" She said as she threw her Pokeball and Bulbasaur appeared.

"Bulb! Bul a saur!"

"Vinewhip that little girl!" Well... that's... at least what May's Balbasaur tried to do... it was a good effort and all, but it just ended up vinewhipping a treetrunk and the little girl continued to run.

"More intruders! More intruders!" Momentarilly, May and Sheath were surrounded by guards. May sweatdropped while Sheathie just covered her face.

"Heheheh... might you fellas know where our good pals Ash and Misty are? Y'know, they guy with the hat who's always with the pretty re-haired girl who is so obviously head over heels-"

One of the guards (duh= one of the head of the guards) grinned evily,

"Just come with us."
~~~~~~~~~~~~~
"Here's your sweet, kid." The gard said as he shoved Ash (still carrying Misty) into the room.

"Ya check in with Master every time ya leave this room, or, well, ya know the consiquences." With that, the man closed and bolted the door.

Ash carefully set Misty down on one of the two beds in the room and took off her cape. His hand brushed against her soft face, which was hot to his surprise. Ash pulled up a chair next to Misty looked around the room. The room was draped in blue and silver and the bedsheets had pictures depicting a fairytale with a handsome prince and a beautiful mermaid princess.

(sound firmilliar?)

Ash looked down at Misty, with her hair spread aroud her beautiful snow white face, her face so peaceful and so not... not... wel, frankly not yelling or angry.

*She so beautiful! Wait! Did I just think that?* Ash thought. Did he? he did. He did think that. Again. He was thinking it again. How special she was...

Ash leane down and breathed in her sweet perfume and slowly his lips were drawn to her lips... but just before he could kiss her, her eyes suddenly flew open.

"A-Ash?" She asked, sitting up. Now Ash was a new shade of red. way red. the kind of red you turn when you find out your skirt had been tucked in your underpants all day or that the girl/boy you liked all along likes YOU! Yeah, that red.

"I-I-I!" Ash turned away,

"Um you okay?" he asked, still looking away.

Misty ran her hands through her hair,
"Yeah... um I think so... h-hpw 'bout you, Ashy?"

Wow, now that blush was way bright crimson.

"Why wouldn't I be!?" Misty gave Ash the sly eye.

"You've been without food since breakfast-" gruuumblegurglegurrrrrgrooooannuuummmbllee. Ash's stomach grumbled quite loudly and Misty giggled,

"That's what I thought." She looked around,
"So how exactly do we get some food?"

Ash held his stomach as it gurgled again,
"I don't know."
~~~~~~~~
"Vuala!" Brock said as he pointed to the off-road jeep.

"What? Drive it?" Tracey asked

"duh!" Brock said as he grabbed the keys off the wall and got in

"Jump in and we'll find your Juliet, Shakespoe."

"Didn't Romeo fall in love with Juliet? And the auther wasn't Shakespoe-"

"Whatever." Brock said *Of course You're not going to fall in love with Juliet, Shakespoe, the part of Romeo's already taken...*

*By Ash.*
~~~~~~~
"Where could they be?" Drew asked Keuyu.

"I don't know but-"

VROOOOOM!

"Hey guys!" Keuyu and Drew looked up to find Brock and Tracey parked up along side them.

"What the heck are you doing driving my original million jeep?" Keuyu asked in a calm voice.

Brock sweatdropped,
"My mistake... Why don't you drive?" He scooted over to allow Keuyu behind the wheel. Tracey and Drew climbed in back and Keuyu drove away.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

"Missute, Rollfcof, come here." Matuke said as he snapped his fingers. At once, a young purple-haired woman and a tall, blonde haired man appeared. Alongside them were two beige ninetails.

"Commense with operation 'Thousand Tales." The man and lady bowed,

"Yes, Master." And then they, along with their ninetails dissapeared.

"Brother, you have not informed me of 'Operation Thousand Tales.' Please, tell me, what is it?" Keshi asked, looking earnestly into Matuke's eyes.

"Do not rush thing, my sweet sister. You will find out in due time. Due time." With that, he focused his attention to the front of the room, and from behind their thrones, emerged a large blue Ninetails. A blue Ninetails with... ten tails?
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

"The Matuke guy said there ewre clothes we were supposed to change into in the 'royal' closet.

"Well is there a 'royal bathroom' I can change in or a royal kitchen?'" Misty asked sarcasticly.

"I don't know. That'd be cool though!" My, My, was a completely dull pin you are, Ashy boy.

Misty stood up and stretched... and realized it hurt REALLY bad to even slightly move her neck.

"Dear dear! Dear dear!" Misty jumped at the sound of the new voice behind them, thus, reinjuring her neck and sinking to the floor.

Ash turned to find a green haired woman in a maid's uniform run in with a little (litterally tiny that is) barking Ninetials yipping at her heel.

"Oh my, oh my! You must be the new 'guests' Master has been talking about! Please, please make yourelves comfortible, yes, yes and please allow me to assist, assist you in anything you need, need." She said in a terribly rushed little voice

"Oh.. hello... Miss..." Misty started

"My name's Sliat, Slait and this is my Tails!" She said, pointing to her Ninetails.

"Oh... well..."

"You must, must get into your uniforms or Master, Master wil be displeased, pleased." She and her Ninetails ran to the closet and pullet out two seperate outfits.

"You have to be kidding me." Misty and Ash said in unison.

Ok, now I'm going to edit this and check it. I hope you guys like it and as SOON as someone reviews I will start my next chapter! Do not worry! I will this time!

Interesting chapter...

I suppose Tracey could be the Shakespeare. Writing the verses of their romance, declaring it true, and letting the whole world know it.

Ash's feelings are starting to come through, aren't they? ^^

Well, best of luck to them all, I suppose. And a nice chapter too.

Thank you! Chapter 11 was (I tried to make it) more of a informational chapter. So, it was kinda hard to add humor where all the drama was. I tried though :) In chapter 12... oh, just PM me if you want some good spoilers or just, as Deo said :) :) , want to get some info on what the heck Ash and Misty have to wear.

Thank you! I love to hear from you all!

Bisbald! TschuB!

~Mysteria Pearl~

By the way, I don't own any of the Pokemon characters accept Sheathie, Keuyu, Matuke, Keshi, and some other non-improtant characters. Also, I don't own Pokemon, or any of the related series.

Ok, since nobody decided to review, I'll start my next chapter right here!

Chapter 12: Things aren't Always what they Appear

Ash gawked up and down at Misty.

"I...I...I...I...I...I..." Misty cocked her head uncomfortibly

"Are you okay?"

Now, of course, Misty had insisted on using the bathroom first... and well... let's just say that the outfit that Matuke had assigned her wasn't esactly what she usually wore...

Misty was wearing a garment... make that a full dress made of light blue velvet. It had a square cut neck that was lined with diamonds- REAL diamonds! She also had to wear her hair down, that lightly cascaded over her shoulders, running down her back and on top her head was an elegant light blue velvet headband adorned with more diamonds. Oh, and did I mention that her dress had a slit all the way up her leg to her waist. Matuke had also given her BIG clicks (Those of you who ren't female, "Clicks" are high heeled shoes)

Ash just stood staring, which made Misty feel very uncomfortible.

"I..."

"Yes I heard... um why don't you go... uh change..." Ash just stood there in a daze.

*One... Two... Three...*

MALLAT TIME! Wowthat looks painful... Oh, and by the way, try listening to some silly music :)

"YOU FREAK! STOP STARING AT ME AND GO CHANGE!" With that, she pulled out her mallet (from nowhere, may I add) and started chasing him around the room.

"GET BACK HERE! I'M GONNA KILL YA!" Misty said, bonking him (gently, suprisingly) on the head.
~~~~
"Nice place ya got here!" May said as the big guard pulled her through a gate.

"We take you to master." The guards said as they pulled May and Sheath into the palace and up to the King and Queen's thrones.

"What now!?" Matuke cried exasperated. May looked the boy and girl up and down, but somthing really bothered her... The boy's eyes were deep and regularly beautiful... but the girl's eyes were blank... and empty... They were plain and flat and it looked as if her mind wasn't present.

"Um... sir... I... we... have you seen our friends, one with spiky black hair and one with birght orange fluffy hair? I could of sworn i saw them-"

"Silence!" Matuke roared. Both May and Sheah were startled. sheathy ran behing MAy and clung fearfully to her.

"Lock them up." All attention went to the seated girl.

"Without any trial or any consideration?" Matuke asked, seeming unsure and suddenly more silent.

"Lock them up." She repeated. The guards were instantly at May and Sheath's sides and grabbed them.

"Get your hands off m-" May started to say while the two giant men dragged she and Sheath away.
~~~~~~~~~
"Dude! do you even know wher you're going?" Brock asked as Keuyu drove once again through a huge bunch of trees.

"I don't care where we're going!" Kauyu cried as he drove through a ditch,
"I must find my princess!"
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The huge blue Ninetails once again appeared,
"There is a message from Giovanni." A voice came from nowhere

Matuke snapped his fingers and a Pokevision appeared before his face,

"Matuke! Keshi! Yolanda! What is taking so long! We should have the earth at our feet by now!"

"In due time." The voice said.

"Well, just make sure that you quicken the pace!"

Matuke and Keshi nodded,

"Yes, Father." Then the Pokevision dissapeared.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
"James, do you even know where we're going!? I should have NEVER let you leave the home base for those chickenwings! (???)

"Sorry, Jessie, but you know that Master Matuke and Mistress Keshi don't allow meat in their palace." Jessie rolled her eyes as James scarfed down the rest of his meal.

Meowth peeked over the side of the hot ar baloon basket,
"Ah see it! Dead ahead!"

Jessie ran over to the side,
"OOH GOODIE! Decent conditions here comes your QUEEN!" James and Meowth sweatdropped.
~~~~~~~~~
"Betcha can't catch me!" Max called as he jumped into the Gym pool. Jane (Joyie) jumped in after him and tagged him. Then she jumped out of the pool and ran around the edge, only to run into her mother, who wrapped her in a towel.

"i hope Misty and Ash are alright..." Nurse Joy wondered aloud.

"I bet they're just okeydokey and they're heading back right now!" Max said as he also jumped out of the pool.

"I hope so..."
~~~~~~~~
"Pika... pika..." Once again, poor Pika had been so tied that he had fallen asleep in Ash's backpack. HE poked his head out of the sack and didn't recognize anything around him.

"Are you awake, Pikachu?" Misty asked, stooping down. Pikahu looked up at her and had no clue who the heck she was. (It was kinda like a surprise "Extreme Poke Remakeover" or somthing) Immeaditly he got charged up as electricity flowed to his (adorible) little red cheeks.

"Wait! It's me, Misty! Your friend!" Pikachu calmed down and tilted his head.

"Chu?! Pipi Pikachu!" (Misty?! Is it you?)

Misty, for some odd reason understood and smiled as she picked up the cute little yellow rodent.

"Yeah..."

"Pipi chu!? Pipi Kachu? Pi kachu Pikachu uu? Pi Pikachu?" (Is it true!? What did Ash say? Did he say you're cute? Ask you out?)

"Yes... it's me... Ash gaped..." Here, Misty blushed,
"And... um no......"

Pikachu got an evil look in it's/his/her (Whatever you think) eye

"PIKACHU!" (PAYBACK!)

"Pardon?" Misty asked with a blank look. The oh-so-innocent look returned to the mouse's face,

"chuchuchu..." (nothing...)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
May sighed and sat down on the far wall of her and Sheath's cell. Prison cell.

"We're right back where we started..." She said in a very I-got-an-attitude-and-I-can-kill-with-it look.

"I'm sorry..." Sheath said. May turned to face her,
"It's okay, Sheathie, this isn't your fault. Sheath looked down at the cement floor,
"If it wasn't for me being really slow, you could of left me.."
"NO WAY! I would never do that-"

BANG! Sticking through the wall of the cell was a long, two rowed jeep.

"Guess putting that map in front of your face while you were driving wasn't such a good idea..." Brock said while seemingly getting about two feet smaller.

"Gee, ya think?" Keuyu asked sarcasticly.

"May!" Drew hopped down and hugged her. May just stood still, blushing very brightly,
"H-how did...? Where did...?" Drew pulled back from the fershmizzled (Yes I know, not a word... blah blah blah) brunette.

"Come on, we have to find Misty and Ash!"

"Betcha ten bucks there out kissing somewhere-" Tracey punhed Brock VERY hard in the face while Sheath climbed onto his (meaning Tracey's) lap.

"But I have nowhere to sit-" May started as Drew climbed in.

"Come on." Drew held out a hand and pulled May onto his lap. (As once again she turned as bright as a cherry)
~~~~~~~~~~~
"More and more of the great Ninetails, my realitives, are being captured or are traveling under the command of someone or somthing. This is not good for me or 'Operation Thousand Tales.' Keshi, Matuke, find for me all the Ninetails and together we shall rule the planet, not just this small village..." Came the voice again as the blue ten tailed fox started to glow once again.

Matuke and Keshi's eyes started to glow and get a flat look once again,
"Yes master."
~~~~~~~~
"I am not wearing this!" Ash declared as he came out of the bathroom. All attention turned to him. Just guess what he was being forced to wear.

Not half bad- not at all bad to be more like it. Burried in his thick, shaggy black hair was a red headband. He was also wearing a red sleeveless shirt that looked a bit tight on him and showed his muscled well. his pants were also made of a red material and they were billowly, although well fit and not a bit big. around his waist was a black sash and his feet were bare.

"Wow..."
"'Wow' what?" Ash asked, looking canfusidly at his Pikachu (who was now grinning evily... and where'd he get the camera...?) and Misty, who was just staring at him, eyebrows raised.

Misty snapped out of it,
"Nothing!" She said uneasily as she got up and turned to get her cape.

Trying to figure out some way of changing the subject, Ash looked around the room once more,
"So... how DO we get food." Yes, as obvious as a red rose on the middle of a mirrored table.

"I think we ask on that monitor thingy." Misty said pointing to a monitor hanging above Ash's bed.

"How? There aren't any bottons or a remote!" Ash said, exasperatedly. He poked it-

"Dinner's in the Dining Hall. Be there." Ash fell back (sweatdrop) as Matuke's face appeared on the screen,
"Walk down the hall, down a flight of stairs and enter a door to your left. Oh, and don't bring that disgusting little rodent- make that any Pokemon- with you." With that the monitor shut off and Matuke's face dissapeared. By that time, Ash recovered from his shock and stood up,

"C'mon, Misty!" He said, grabbing her by the hand and pulling her out of the room.

"Now was it 'up the stairs and the door on your right' or 'down the stairs and the door on you left'?" Ash thought aloud.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
"Guys," Said Keuyu looking up at the seting sun,
"I don't think we're going to be able to find Misty and Ash tonight." By that time, May, Brock and Sheath had already fallen asleep.

"I guess you should just pull over." Tracey and Drew said simoultaniously.

Keuyu parked in a clearing and they all carefully got out of the car (leaving Brock to sleep in the jeep, due to his obnoxious snoring). Drew carried May over to a tree and gently laid her down, as did Tracey with Sheath. Then Tracey, Drew and Keuyu all laid down to sleep and restart their search for Misty and Ash the next day.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
*It's been a long time since they left... gee, I hope they're okay..." Nurse Joy thought as she tucked in Jane and proceeded to Max's room to do the same.

*I shouldn't worry, though... I've heard that can lead to premature grey streaks and wrinkles... and they'll be fine... after all... they've all been on adventures before... I've heard of where they dissapear for monthes and turn out saving the world! Yeah... they'll be fine...*

"Max?" She asked Max's door.

"Coooooooommmme iiiiiiiinnnnnnnn...." She heard his grumble. Nurse Joy opened the door to find the little boy sleeping (kinda) peacefully. Carefully, she went over and tucked him in, turned out he lights, and went to bed for herself.

*I hope...*
~~~~~~~
Oh my gosh, sorry to interrupt, but I just found out I just got a new cousin!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Ash and Misty finally stumbled into the dining hall to find that only they, along with Matuke and Keshi were the only ones present, along with a few man and maid servants lining the walls.

The dining table wall long and thin, and was almost thirteen feet long. Matuke and Keshi sat at either end, while picking at their food.

Matuke looked up,
"Ah! Welcoe, my dear Misty! Please, do take a seat next to me." Misty hesitantly sat down next to him while Ash just sat (On the oppisite side) on a lonely chair in the middle of the table. Misty stared down at her food.

"What is wrong? Why aren't you eating? Are you feeling ill? Shall I have my doctors take a look at you?" Misty looked up at his face, into his eyes.

*That's wierd... why are his eyes... normal? They're so deep and... and... hmmmnn... It looks like he's a whole different person... and he's so kind... and princely... like a knight in shining armour...*

Matuke laid a hand on her forehead. There was a noticible flush that came to Misty's cheeck while Ash quietly fumed.

"Perhaps you should try and eat just a little bit of food and then head off to bed." He said and snapped. A maid came in carrying on a tray, a glass of warm milk.

Misty took it and sipped a little and began to feel a little better and began to nibble at her food, while meanwhile Ash had already finished.

Keshi stood up and without a word, left the room.

"What's with her?" Ash asked.

"Oh, do not worry about her. She often has mood swings and I can almost gaurentee you that she will be back to normal by the morning. Maybe tomorrow I'll even show you around our little town." Matuke said with our meaning more than anyone in the room knew.

Once Misty and Ash had finished their meal, Matuke excused them and they headed off to their room.

"Who the heck does that guy think he is!?" Ash hissed.

"I... I don't now but... he..."

"He enslaves us then is all suddenly chummy with you! 'My dear,' my foot!." Ash continued.

"Ash, I don't think the Matuke we met before was the real..."

"Real what?"

"The real Matuke. I think we just may have met him..."

"If he is Matuke... then isn't he always the real Matuke?" Ash asked while opening the door for her.

"I don't know..."

"Hello, hello! How are you, you? Are you ready for bed, bed?" Ash jumped back and held his chest as Sliat appeared with Tails out of nowhere.

"Um... yes..."

Sliat beamed,
"Great, great! Mistress Misty, follow me, me!" Misty hesitantly followed the /way too peppy/ little maid into the changing / bathroom while ash jumped head first into his bed.
In a little while, Misty emerged, folowed by Tails and Sliat, in a red satin bedgown.

"Come on Master Ash, Ash. Follow me, me!" Ash fell off his bed and followed Sliat and later also emerged in a red satin bedsuit. Misty had already gotten into bed and had turned out the light.

"Pi Pikachu Pikachu hu uu?" (Did you say she's cute yet?) Asked Pikachu as he jumped onto Ash's lap.

"SHHH! I... no... um who?"

"Chu!" (Misty!) (also meaning, 'You dunce! Misty!)

Ash turned brihgt red as he again shushed Pikachu (while PIkachu, may I add, roled it's eyes.)

"Goodnight, Ash..." Misty mumbled from her side of the room.

"G'night."
~~~~~~
"When shall I inform him of my intentions?" Matuke asked the grreat Ten Tailed fox.

"Soon, but I'm afraid, that Ash will not do what I please."

"I cannot blame him if it is his own choice to disobey you, Master Yolanda."

"As you have no choice, neither will he."

"How will you convince him?"

"He has not yet seen me. And with any hope, if his 'Darling Princess' is at stake, why would he even give a second thought to obeying me?" The voice said

"You wouldn't dare put the Master of Water in any danger, would thee?" Matuke asked, startledly.

"I will do anything to get my way, Matuke. You know that well." Matuke noded and once again, the Great Blue Fox dissapeared.

Sorry, for taking me this while to answer Mysteria Pearl. Those two chapter are good. I knew you could write again and you did it great. Keep it up!

Edit: Well, I finished reading what I haven't and it's really good as I told you before. Tell me went you update the next chapter. Later

Enter harsh reviewer.

I have a feeling if you didn't leave a line gap between each sentence this wouldn't be a page long, but then it's a just a feeling.

Shippiness, plot and description is all this has really got, as grammar is, well bluntly WAY TOO MANY SPELLING MISTAKES. When characters are speaking, you can use slang, when you are writing, best not to really unless you use quoation marks, which are '(Insert slang word here)'. Authors notes are funny, but best left for scripts, in this they ruin the pace IMO. And the fact you use red writing makes it hard for me to read as I'm on Dark Skin and would rather not change. Do you have Microsoft Word, Works Word Processor or another form of spellcheck? If not hire a proofreader(not me I'm too busy with other things). That way you can keep spelling mistakes down. That's the cons.

Pros, well the shippiness is nice and proper, the plot is very interesting, if enigmatic other than the shipping, and the characters are interesting. The description has by far improved a lot.

Overall just fix the grammar niggles and maybe the length(I can't shake the feeling sorry), and this will be a really great fic, instead of just a great AAML.

Auf Wiedersehn!(as I can't use accents as I use a laptop)

lol what Shiny Flygon said. You can use me as a proofreader, I don't really mind a lot, since I'm bored to death anyway. But I'm not going to be on 24/7.

Nay, latest chapter...Dark skin or Serebii 9.0, Burgandy is real hard to read. Bah. Not bad, but mistakes galore, and even author notes are mispelt, and all those not very important brackets/parentheses/( ) make it distracting. Yeah. Plot is going on, and I shall have to wait and see.

Hm...a mysterious development. And some fun outfit descriptions; very nice, that. They sound extravagant, and cool as well.

All in all, a nice chapter. I'll be waiting for more!

On the extension, one niggle to add, wait until the end of a post before mentioning something important FRL, since it ruins the flow, and a better way to do some of the things you did:

You put:-

Misty smiled(she strangely understood)

It sounds better when put:-

Misty smiled, hiding the fact she was amazed to find that she could understand what the little yellow rodent,

Also, did you borrow the camera idea off me? If you did could you say so as it was going to be used later in my fic, and I don't want to be aid to be copying you.

Mysteria Pearl
26th November 2005, 4:51 PM
ok, I'll go back and change that. Thank you!

~Mysteria Pearl~

ok, it's fixed

Couldn't you warn us when you make an extension? X_X It's kinda annoying.

Fine, Burgandy looks fine on Serebii v9.0 skin. Sue me.

As usual, the writer notes appear out of nowhere, and why the strange note that you have a new cousin in the middle of nowhere? >_> Add that as a postscript(also known as P.S.) or something. Mistakes are still on a rampage, and it's 2 plus on my side so I can't list 'em all. The plot is still driving me crazy. Hehe. I am awaiting for the next chapter.

~Mysteria Pearl~

Here we go! Chapter 13 has finally arrived!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Chapter 13

"Stop...! Please... not them... take me... not Ash... please... stop... I... I l..." Ash awoke to the sound of a certain redhead crying and talking in her sleep.

Slowly, without making a single noise, he crept out of bed and started to tiptoe over across the room towards Misty's bed. He silently made his way around the far side of his bed through the moonlight that was coming through the tall, acutely pointed stained-glass window. Carefully, he put his hand on Misty's face to find it wet with tears and shaking horribly, along with the rest of her body,

"Misty..." He whispered only loud enough for her to hear,

"Misty...? Wake up... you're only dreaming..." Misty shot up like a rocket (excuse the term) with a blank look on her face, staring, unbelieving, at Ash, kneeling next to her bed.

A couple of seconds ticked by before, suddenly, Misty threw her arms around Ash's neck and sobbed into his sleeping uniform shirt. That left Ash dumbfounded... and what's this? Ash changes colors too? Let's watch. Ash turned from a light pink into a red into a satisfying cranberry color brfore he finally snapped out of it by thinking,

*I, uh, this is not what you are thinking! Misty's just your best friend! She could-WOULD never fall in love with me! Breathe deeply! That's not deeply! DEEPER!* Finally Ash regained his senses and slowly wrapped his arms around the sobbing girl,

"What's wrong? Are you okay?" He asked in a hushed tone. Misty sniffed,

"E-everyone was... you were... I-I-I I was left to... they took you instead o-of me... they t-took all of my N-Ninetails a-nd," she took a shaky breath,
"I-it was all my fault, y-you in-sisted on getting h-hung instead of me I-I..." She broke back out into a tearful fit once again as she clung to Ash's warm body

"I, um... it was only a dream... why would anyone wanna... um... whenever I have a bad dream, I think about cheeseburgers! Lots and lots of cheeseburgers! of Or pie! Or winning the title of "Number 1 Pokemon Master!"" Misty wiped her nose (by the way, it didn't run, it was just a habbit, like Ash always thinking about food...) and looked back up at Ash, who in return let her go and sat back on his haunches. He ran his hand through his hair,

"Now, um, go back to sleep! You woke me up! And don't have another bad dream, I need my beauty rest!" Ash said in a matter-of-factial way, which made Misty giggle,
"Yes sir, Mr. Model!" Ash sweatdropped as he went back to his bed, got in and said,

"Good night, again." But Misty was already asleep. Somewhere in the very same room a tiny, almost unnoticable little fox-type pokemon dissapeared.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
"WIll you marry me?" a certain green haired... prince in tights and a big puffy hat... asked a certain brunette... princess in all silk and satin...?
"Yes! Oh, I love you so very much, Prince Drew!" She said as she swung her arms around the Princes' neck,
"Oh dear Princess May, I feel the exact same way! Would you like an egg?"

"Scrambled, please, Prince!"

"Um... prince? Whatever. Do you want anything else, May?"

"Yes, my love! I'd like aloaf of toast and some orange juice!"

"MAY WAKE UP!" May woke up to find a not puffy hatted, not tights-wearing Drew shaking her from behind. the "prince" she had been holding tight turned out to be a... tree?

"What's with all this lovey-dovey and princey stuff?" Drew asked as he helped May up in almost total darkness, accept the moonlight.

"Um... nothing!?"

"Uh, huh. So if I did this, it wouldn't phase you?" Drew asked, smirking.

"Do wha-" May started to ask, before Drew grabbed her hand and swung her around into a kind of hugging position, against his chest, and held her chin gently with his right hand as he bent down and kissed her cheek. Ooh, that's a new color, seems to be maroon, or should I say, moron.

"I-I-I-I-I-" May said blushing so deep, that you couldn't tell what her original skin color was.

"Nope," said Drew smiling,
"Didn't phase you a bit." WIth that, he hugged her tightly again and about the time when May looked like she was about to turn purple in joy... or perhaps of insanity, He released her from his grip... and hmmn... that's odd... it seems that he had turned a reddish color as well.

"Um..." Was all that both of them could say before Brock walked up and said,
"You, lovebirds, help me set up breakfast, you are going to eat somthing, right?" May and Drew blushed before May randomly piked up a HUGE log and whacked Brock in the head with it.
~~~~~
A big Meowth balloon landed near the base.
"Finally! We're HEEEEEEERE!" Jessie cried as she jumped out and stretched.

"FREEZE!" James, Meowth,and Jessie all froze.

A purple haired woman held what seemed to be a bazooka up at the Trio.

"Who are you and what do you want?" A tall, blonde man, who seemed to be married to the purple haired woman asked,

"We're members of Team Rocket! WE mean it!" Jessie shouted.

"Missute, what should we do?" Asked the blonde man.

"Rollfcof, go tell Master Matuke or Mistress Keshi that they're here." Missute said without lowering the bazooka. Rollfcof ran off,
"So, what are you here for?" Missute asked, glaring.

"Hon, we work for Giovanni himself-" Jessie started

"Shut up! how do you know about our Masters' father!?" Jessie, James and Meowth looked at each other.

"Boss has kids?"
~~~~~~~~~~
"Master! Mistress! There are more intruders! They claim to be Team Rocket members! What shall I do with them?" Asked Rollfcof while bowing before Matuke and Keshi.

"I suggest you bring them in." Keshi answered with a blank look in her eyes.

"Yes indeed. Also, will you send a wake up call to our guests, Ash, and darling Misty?" Matuke asked.

"Yes sir and ma'am. I will do as you require." Rollfcof said as he left.

"Do you believe that it perhaps may be possible that these characters actually work for Father?" Matuke asked.

"It is possible." Keshi snapped her fingers and a blue ten-tailed Ninetails appeared.

"Yolanda, there seems to be intruders claiming to be of an alliance with our father, could that be true?" Matuke asked.

The fox's eyes began to glow a dark red color,
"Indeed. Agents Jessie, James, and a talking Meowth all have previously worked for your Father for the past four years."

"What shall we do with them, Mistress Yolanda?" Matuke asked the Ninetails.

"Allow them to believe that we will procede in allowing them to help us. That talking Meowth may be a key asset to our master plan, indeed?"

"Yes," Keshi said in a monotone voice,
"We will fool them into our master plan, and then they will have no choice, just like the others."

"You mean threaten them?" Matuke asked.

"Yes. Find the weakness to their Trio and then rip it apart. Do as I command." The blue Ninetails said as it dissapeared.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
"So is it allright to let them in?" Missute asked as Rollfcof reappeared.

"Indeed. Follow me." Missute lowered the bazooka and followed the four into the palace.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~
"Dear, dear! Wake up, up!" Misty awoke with a start to find a green haired lady standing baove her,
"Time, time to get up, up!" Ash Yawned noisily as he stretched and also woke up.

"I'll get your clothes for today, day!" Slait chattered as she ran out of the room momentarilly to re-enter with a light green velvet dress with a design that perfectly matched the outfit Misty was assigned the day before and another red outfit for Ash.

"Hurry and change, change Mistress Misty, for the Master wants to talk with you, you!" Misty got up, kind of confused and went into the changing room followed by Slait, while Tails (Slait's Ninetails) waited near Ash. Minutes later, Misty emerged in the beautiful satin dress that made Ash gawk. But before too long, Ash found himself being pushed into the changing room himslef, by Tails.

A little later, Ash also emerged in his uniform, pouting, and followed a glamourous Misty and a fretty little maid out to the main hall where Matuke and Keshi were throned.

"Dear Misty! Welcome! And hello, Ash. Please, my dear, come and sit with me on my throne!" Misty hessitantly got up onto the raised platform and as she was commanded, sat down next to Matuke on his roomy throne.

"Bring in the intruders!" Keshi shouted, with a still blank look in her eyes. Almost immeaditly, Rollfcof entered, followerd by Jessie, James, Meowth, and Missute.

"Team Rocket!" Ash shouted and Misty said, rather quietly.

"The twerps! And the stupid red haired one is sitting with the Boss' son!" Jessie crowed.

"SILENCE!" Matuke roared,
"You may be favorible to our father, but this is our palace, town and base. So you will treat my darling Misty as if she is my wife, for soon, she shall be!" Matuke said.

"WIFE?!" Ash, James, Jessie, and Meowth shouted as they stood.

"Yes indeed. She shall be my wife and you re you serve us, along with my sister! Have joy, for today your king has chosen his wife!" Misty felt horrified, but dared not show it.

"You shall also kindly do everything that she ask, as well as what I and her friend Ash ask! Now then, Rollfcof, Missute, please assign them a smaller in detail mission. You are dismissed." Missute grabbed Jessie's arm and Rollfcof led James to the outside of the Burgandy Hall.

"please come with us to Mission Assignment Headquarters. It is located in the West Wing." Missute said as she led them, followed by her husband to a room with panels and papers covering it from head to toe,

"So what's the story of this place... you?" Jessie asked Misute as she looked around her.

"This project was begun many years ago by Giovanni. Master and Mistress aren't really his children, he carefully selected and kidnapped them when they were young and raised them as the King and Gueen. The public here is made up of the refugees of the old peaceful town that once stood here, members of Team Rocket, their famalies, and others that Giovanni selected to serve his "children." Just like Rollfcof and I. We were taken captive by Giovanni a couple of years back... I don't even know what has happened to our dear children. He is a tyrant, allong with his children he wishes to rule the world. There is also somthing else helping them, but nobody has ever seen it or knows its name, as far as I know." She picked up a piece of paper and skimmed down the list,

"There seems to be a small task here that needs to be taken care of. There has recently been a break-out of our jail. It would seem that a brunette girl by the name of May and a green haired girl- who was previously our prisoner for other various reasons, escaped through what seemed to be a gaint hole in the prison wall. As this is your first mission, you must leave all un-"captured" Pokemon that belong to you with us, along with all of your captured Pokemon but one."

Jessie and James looked down at Meowth,
"Nowt Me! I'm pwart of 'da team! You can't leave me!: Jessie shook her head,
"Sorry, Meowth, but we'll have to. Buh-bye now!" Missute picked up the cat Pokemon as Rollfcof led Jessie and James to the transportation and weapons rooms.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
"My darling Misty, whatever is the matter?" Matuke asked as he gently took Mity's face in his hands. ASh twitched from below on the lower level as he glared,
*WHO THE HECK DOES HE THINK HE IS!?* Ash's heart, as well as Misty's, starting to beat faster and faster, and faster. Matuke leaned down and planted a long kiss on Misty's cheek. In return, she could hardly move.

"Stop!" Ash cried as he, not realizing it, stood up.

Matuke turned to him with an amused look on his face.

"Remember our little agreement. If either of you go against my will, the other will suffer-"
"Matuke, dear, do not be angry at my friend, please." Matuke and Ash turned to Misty who had suddenly lowered her voice. She raised her hand and took Matuke's cheek in her hand and kissed his other cheek. Ash was shocked, and ran out of the room and back to his. Meanwhile, Misty could feel her stomach sink.

"You chose correctly, my dear. You indeed are wise, now I shall make sure that he suffers no longer." Matuke said as he stroked her hand.

"I feel a little sick... can I go back to my room?" She asked.

"Indeed, my little flower. I wouldn't want you to catch a fever." Misty stood up and walked to the door. Once she was outside the Burgandy Hall, she made a dash for their room, finding the door with a crack in it as well a two very large dents. Carefully she snuck in,
"Ash?" She whispered. Ash didn't hear her, because he was face down on his bed crying. It struck Misty odd to see Ash cry, she would never of guessed he could cry, but then again, she hadn't seen him cry when she was forced to leave to take over her sisters gym. She carefully walked over the Ash's bed and placed her hand on the back of his head and stroked his bushy blackish brown mane. Then her hand went down from his head to is shoulder to his hand.

Ash's sniftling had seemed to slow down and almost cease.

"Are you okay?" Misty whispered

"W-why would you care?" Ash asked and then hiccuped.

*Because I love you!* Misty wanted to shout and Ash wanted to hear.

"Because... I don't love Matuke."

"Why not?" Came Ash's muffled voice.

*You dunce, because I love you!* Misty thought again. Ash waited for a reply.

"Because..." Misty started,
"I think I'm already in love..."

*with you*
~~~~~~~
Nurse Joy yawned and noticed that her little daughter was no longer in her bed, nor in the room.
"It's so good to be able to sleep in! I wonder if Ash, Misty, May, Brock, Tracey, Drew, and Keuyu have gotten back yet. I hope so." Nurse Joy pulled on a pink fluffy housecoat and some matching slippers. She opened the door to her room and decided to go down to the kitchen to get somthing to eat.

As she entered the kitchen, she found it deserted. That seemed strange for her, because she had never owned huge mansion, or even a house, of her very own. Therefore she never had a kitchen of her own. She and Jane had always lived in a little apartment-type building attached to a local Pokemon Center. Whenever she had gone into the Pokemon Center Kitchen, it was always full of people and Pokemon, wanting food and more food.

"Jane? Maxie? Are you two here?" She went over to the fridge and pulled out a bananna to eat.

*Pool. Of course. They must be in the pool* Nurse Joy smacked herself on the forehead for not thinking of it sooner. She went down a long spiral staircase that started in the back of the kitched, found herself in a long hallway that had many rooms attached, a bath hall and finally outside on the patio.

*How many places in this house could there be?*

"-ah hahaha! I got you!"

"-EEK!" Came two childrens' voices. Nurse Joy followed the voices around the patio and found Jane and Max playing in the shallow childrens pool, splashing and having lots of fun.

Jane turned and saw Nurse Joy,
"Mama! Hello! About time you got up!" She said while smiling. Nurse Joy sat down on a pool chair and started to eat her bananna as she watched the children play,
"Have you seen anybody come back yet?" She asked.

"Nope!" Max said as he again splashed Jane

"Mama, I'm worried. What if they don't come back? Shouldn't we go look for them?" Jane asked impatiently.

"Heavens, no! I don't know what I would do if anything were to happen to either of you!" Nurse Joy said as she looked up st the sky, which for some reason, was darkening.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~
May wolfed down four eggs in mere seconds. Then she grabbed Drew's plate and ate his food too.
"um sure..." Drew said as he sweatdropped,
"You can have my food." Drew finished.

May then turned towards Tracey with a gleaming look in her eyes...

"FOOD!" Tracey stood up and held his plate high over his head so that May couldn't reach it. Brock and Keuyu did the very same thing.

"RARRRR!" Steam comes out of May's nose and ears...?

"I'M GOING TO TELL MISS MISTY ON YOU WHEN WE FIND HER AND THEN SHE'S GONNA BASH YOUR HEADS IN AND NEVER LIKE YA!" Almost immeaditly the blonde, greenish-brunette and the dark brunette all lowered their plates for May to devour. Such is the price of love... or perhaps pain, eh?
~~~~~~
Misty just sat still, next to Ash, with her hand on top of his there in the quiet. Maybe a little too quiet... silence can be a monster.

"Um... how about we go outside and train a little with our Pokemon?" Misty asked.

"Sure..." Ash sad as he sat up,
"But do ya think that Matuke and Keshi would let us?" Ash asked.

"Heck yeah, I think I can work it out. Carry my cape and follow me." Misty said with a sly look in her eye.
~~~~~~~~~~
"AH! My Darling Misty, are you feeling well? You look as if you feel better." Matuke smiled as Misty entered.

"Yes, thank you Matuke. I'm feeling much better. Thank you for worrying. I was wondering, though, I'd feel alot better if I could pehaps go outdoors to train a little with my Pokemon with Ash. Would that be possible?" She asked sweetly. Matuke stood and walked over to her. She looked up at his smiling kind face... kind?

"Of course, my dear, some fresh air will do you some good. Follow me, and I'll show you to the gardens." He took her hand and led her, followed also by a scowling Ash, to a huge walled in garden. It had beautiful statues and tall, carved bushes in the shapes of Pokemon and humans.

"It's beautiful." Misty said as she looked around.

"Why thank you, my dear. It's almost as lovely as you. But I fear, I must leave and return to my duties. I'll watch every once and awhile from my veranda. I shall see you later, my dear." He said as he left.

"Ok, it official. I hate him." Ash said.

"Don't ever say that! Somthing awful could happen to him two seconds from not an you'd regret it!" Misty said as she snatched her cape from Ash.

"Jeez, you say that like you care." Ash said, stuffing his hands in his pockets.

"Whatever."

Please! Stop! You have no idea what you are about to do! You are endangering us, you, all Pokemon and even the world! Please! Mistress Misty, Do not call us out!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Yay! Chapter 13 is finally complete!

Hmmm...Crypticness. Not much to comment on. Typos galore, cryptic plot, some explanation...Yep, the usual.

Nylf
29th December 2005, 6:27 PM
Plot, cryptic, romance, Cina's been gagged, typos, many, grammar, s'alright, text, I HAD TO HIGHLIGHT THE WHOLE THING. Please can you just do normal colour my fingers are killing me from highlighting that. Overall, remains average, try reading it over, correcting titles and at one spot Misty was in two places at once. I really got confused there. It's got the plot idea set but the spelling really needs work, I really do recommend getting a beta-reader.

30th December 2005, 5:58 PM
1 What version of Serebii do you use, Nylf? I chose the colour for the newer skin, v9.0, the green one. I'll go see what it looks like in the brown. :D be right back.

~Mysteria Pearl~

hmmn... I'm back and the v7.0 brown version with the burgandy lettering looks fine. I'll see what I can do.

~Mysteria Pearl~

Alrighty, the problem's solved. :D

about where you were confused

Misty turned towards Tracey with a gleaming look in her eyes. ahh, I see now. I meant to put that May turned towards Tracey hungrily r somthig like that. THanks for catching that :D I'll go edit right now!

~Mysteria Pearl~

Ok, now that problem's fixed too.

Felix Feral Fezirix
30th December 2005, 11:18 PM
I merely assumed that was May. And I use Dark type skin and I had to highlight. Next time Nlyf, just highlight the whole thing first. Abuse the scroll.

Nylf
30th December 2005, 11:32 PM
I assumed that as well, and I did, I'm on a laptop, and scroll still kills my fingers. Anyway to prevent spammyness, the plot is definetly original. Though the whole husband/wife thing is definetly psychotic in my opinion. He's only like fourteen? If I was Ash I wouldn't have given a Pikachu's and punched him. Can't give orders if you're unconcious.

Mysteria Pearl
31st December 2005, 3:41 AM
:D very, true. Good of you to point out the age, so that I can perhaps clarify.

Matuke is not indeed as young as Misty and Ash, who are about fourteen. Matuke is supposed to be about fifteen to sixteen, I haven't decided. He could be perhaps seventeen. But he has never been to the outside world. You notice, when he shows them out to the gardens, he must go back inside, not because he must go back to his duties, but Giovanni has forbidden him to stay too long outside. So, mainly from all his books, about rennasance times, all he knows about is around that time period. He has basicly no idea about things other than things run by Giovanni or his kingdom. He actually believes that kings and queens should become married early, like in the fairytales he read as a child. He doesn't know about Presidents or oligarchies or any other kind of rule other than having a monarchy.

yes, it would have been funny for Ash to do such a thing, but he knew that such a reaction would put either he or Misty in greater danger. :D Hoped you liked it :D

for now,
~Mysteria Pearl~

oh, and by the way, does anybody have any good Pokeshippy fics that have new chapters or anything? I'd love to read them :D

mindripper
11th January 2006, 12:35 PM
Ahoy there! Pokeshippers united here huh? Been a long tim since I have been hanging out with this croud, but better late than never, right?

Lol, I just loved the part when Jessie said "Hon". That was a little OOC but just picturing that in my head makes me stifle a little guffaw. Yeah and I agree that the kids are still pretty much minors, so let us just leave it to cute antics and sweet nothings ok? haha. Hey PM or contact me when you need me to review again. I will try to be punctual!

14th January 2006, 5:48 AM
Hi! Well, here we go! Next chapter!
_________
Chapter 14
Matuke stood at his balcany, dazingly watching Misty scold Ash for somthing. He leaned down and put his chin on his palm as he lovingly watched her. A big blue Ninetails appeared beside him,
"You actually believe you have found yourself a wife." it said.

"Yes." Matuke said as he sighed.
"She is so perfect. She's the master of water, and kind, sweet, pretty..."

"Do not forget our mission." Keshi said as she walked up behind them.

"Yes, indeed." Matuke said
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Misty opened her cape,
"Come on out all of you!" She called, but she had no idea of the chaos that was about to come. She was surrounded by light and appearing around her were hundreds upon hundreds of beautiful graceful pokemon.

from high up on the balcaony, Matuke started and almost fell backwards as he gaped, along with the Ninetails and his sister. The large blue Ninetails eyes began to glow red.

"Yolanda! Please don't-" Matuke tried to say, but it was too late. the enormous Ninetails leaped gracefully over the balcony, dissapearing, and invisably landing on the ground. Matuke immeaditly tore out of the room, down many flights of stairs and to the garden door. Keshi merely took her seat once again and glared at the door.

The invisible Ninetails landed softly and immeaditly grabbed the attention of all the Ninetails. The invisible Ninetails then lifted it head and roared a high-pitched supersonic roar. Then it bit the largest Ninetails near the knee, sending it into a raged schock. It flung around, trying to loosten itself from it's pain, also disturbing all the others. Soon, all of the Pokemon were rampaging.

"What's going on?!" Ash shouted over the ruckuss as he tried to make his way over to where he last saw Misty. Meanwhile, Matuke stared to run through the doorway as one by one the Ninetails seemed to dissapear within the now crushed gardens.

Matuke looked around,
"Oh no!" He whispered to himself,
"Mistress Yolanda has gone too far!"

Misty's limp body laid in the middle of the clearing. She tried to move but simply could not.

"Misty!" Both Ash and Matuke cried as they ran towards her side. Matuke reached her first and scooped her up in his arms, stroking her hair,
"Misty! Dear, are you alright?" Matuke asked and repeated over and over until Misty finally responded. Her eyes slowly fluttered and opened and looked up at the handsome Burgandy Prince. Then Misty threw her arms around him and turned into a shaking madness. Ash stood next to the prince and Misty, glaring down at them. Once Misty had gained conciousness, she clung, shaking, to Matuke.

"Shhh, it's alright..." Matuke said, rocking her back and forth.

"Matuke! How dare you defy Master!" Keshi said, still looking rather lifeless, calling down from the balcony. Matuke stood up, carrying Misty bride style, inside, followed by Ash. Matuke then sat down on his throne with Misty huddling in his lap and wiped a thin line of blood off of Misty's face.

"I will return Misty to your room when she has regained composure. Leave now." Matuke said to Ash. In return, Matuke got a large glare from the black haired boy.

"Fine," Matuke said while rolling his eyes,
"Tomorrow I'll allow you to attend my private springs and onsen (hot springs)." He said.

Ash turned and angrily left.

"You defied Master Yolanda." Keshi hissed. Then, she apparently calmed down,
"You know, she will take you over next if you don't be careful." She said in a monotone voice.

"The olnly reason you are taken over is because you're can't be trusted. Now get Yolanda." Matuke said. Immeaditly the blue Ninetails reappeared,

"What is it! I can't be bothered every time you have a problem, child," the voice said harsh-like,
"Besides, you disobeyed me. You left the castle. You know how much that angers me! The outdoor world is not pleasant-"

"I'm sorry I did not recieve your permission. But may I , perhaps, bring our guests to our private onsen tomorrow?" He pleaded.

"Yes. I will silently escort you there." Then there was a moment of silence.

"What did you do with her pokemon?" Matuke said as he broke the silence.

"Do? I didn't do anything with them."

"Tell the truth." Matuke snarled.

"They're in my control now. They're safely hidden away where even you or even the Water or Pokemon Mater could find. Don't worry, child, I won't hurt your precious Miss Waters. I have everything I need. Goodbye." The Ninetails phased away and Misty sat up, unaware that the blue Ninetails had even been there

"Are you alright, my dear?" Matuke asked as he patted her head.

"Y-yes." Misty whispered,
"But where are my P-pokemon?" she asked.

"I am sure they're fine. I will have my servants locate them for you later. I am sure they will be fine, as with such a wonderful trainer as you," Misty burried her face in his shirt and began to sobb again,

"There, there, my dear. Hey!" He said trying to lighten the mood,
"I have already told your friend that I will take you two to my private Onsen. Does that sound fun?" He asked kindly

"Yes... that does sound fun..."
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Keuyu glared up at the sun that was now far up in the sky.
"So, May, are you sure that Misty and Ash are in the place you were being held?" Keuyu asked. May rolled her eyes,
"No, I'm not sure. I just think that that's the kind of place full of trouble where Ash would get into trouble."

"WHAT?!" Keuyu burst,
"I thought he was supposed to be totally responsible and capible of handling things! Like a REAL Pokemon Master!" May burst out laughing as Keuyu closed the jeep door behind him and the rest of thegroup climbed in,

"Where would you come up with such a stupid idea?! He's the most irrosponsible troublemaker on the planet!" May cackled.

"Misty told me so and he seemed like he's the big hero!" Keuyu shouted, exasperated.

everyone in the car snickered as the jeep took off in a mad rage towards the Team Rocket Base.
~~~~
"Misty, my dear, how are you feeling now?" Keuyu asked as he stroked her hair.

"I guess I feel a little better... but my right leg hurts..."

"Are you feeling well enough to talk about a pressing matter?" He asked.

"I guess so..." Misty said uncomfortibly.

"Good." Matuke stood up,
"Then I think we should speak somewhere more private." He beckoned for Misty to follow him, but as she tried to stand up, her leg crumpled beneath her. Matuke ran to her side and picked her up, bride style.

"I suppose I shall carry you, then." Matuke said as he smiled down at the redhead and walked off into a private part of the castle.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Nurse Joy dried off Jane's head with a towel and then proceeded onto Max,

"What should we do while we wait?" Nurse Joy asked the children.

"Let's play hide and seek!" Max said, jumping up and down with excitement.

"Yeah! Can we!? Can we?!" asked Jane, also starting to hop.

Surse Joy smiled,
"Sure, but why don't we all change. You two can't run around the house all wet and I'm still in my bathrobe." The children ran into the hose with Nurse Joy trailing behind.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Matuke laid Misty down on a long, thin couch and sat on a small cushioned chair across from her. They were on a big, sunny balcony, overlooking a bit of the forest and the mountian.

"My dear, I'm afraid I haven't been able to talk this over with you yet," He pulled a small, square box out of his pocket and opened it in front of Misty's eyes.

Inside the box was a pure gold ring with a rather large diamond.

"I'd like to formerly tell you that I do love you. You seem too wonderful to be true," He said, kissing her hand. Then he swollowed hard before regaining composure,
"I- I suppose I am asking you to indeed marry me." He said, smiling from ear to ear.

"I-I-I-I-" Misty could hardley speak.

*I can't marry him! I love someone else! But if I don't waht will he do?! Will he hurt Ash?! I can't let that happen!*

"I thought we could have our wedding in three days is that alright or is that too long to wait? Perhaps we should get married in two days, hmm?" He pulled the ring out of the box and gently placed in on Misty's shaking finger.

"T-th-three days...?" Misty mumbled, not sounding much like a question, still in shock

"Perfect." Matuke said as he stroked Misty's hair and then leaning down...

He kissed Misty Waters on her lips, leaving her once again speechless and shocked
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
"Stop the jeep!" Tracey cried and the jeep came to a halt.

"What?!" Everyone asked.

"I thought I saw somthing back there!" Tracey said as the Jeep backed up.

Yes, through a small break in the trees, there was visible a small, grey, box-like building, a few small huts and what seemed to be a castle-like structure.

"Yep, that's sure it!" May said
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
About ten minutes after the two dripping children and Nurse Joy went into their rooms to change, they emerged, fully clothed and... mostly dry.

"Who should be it first?" Jane asked, twirling around.

"I'll be it." Nurse Joy said, turning to the wall and beginning to count,
"One... two... three... four..." Max grabbed Jane's hand and pulled her into the elevator and pressed the top floor button.

As soon as the duo stepped out of the elevator, they found themselves in a small, box-like hallway that faced one large, Cherry-Oak-wood door labeled in gold, "Keuyu"

"I wonder what's inside!" Max said escitedly as he reached up for the door handle.

"We shouldn't go into his room! It's private!" Jane argured.

"If he doesn't want anyone to go inside, he'd lock it." Max said as he turned the handle and swung open the giant, heavy door and they sepped inside.

"Woah!" Max said as he closed the door behind him.

Keuyu's whole room was dedicated to a certain redhead. There were thousands upon thousands of paintings and newspaper articles ung on the walls, along with unfinished portraits leaning, drying against the wall. His bedroom window looked out onto the forest and the bed was striped with blue and orange. There were also hundreds of letters and pictures of the redhead hung and scattered all over.

"It's like a shrine to Misty!" Jane cried.

"Yeah..." Max said as he picked up a worn looking book that had been laying on Keuyu's bed. He flipped to the last page.

"This one's dated just a few days ago, when we first got here!" Max said as he bagan to read,

Oh I am so happy! My darling Mi has finally come and she's staying here! I am so in love with her! And I'm so pleased that she actually came! Oh, how I wish I could tell her how I really feel! She is just so gorgeous and perfect and kind! But I fear that one of her closest friends, Ash Ketchum, favours her as well. I must tell her of my love before he does. He seems nice, though, and I have to admit they would make an adorible couple... but... I swear, as soon as i can get a free moment alone with her, I will admit my true feelings and hope that she doesn't reject me.

Hopefully, Keuyu


Alrighty, I guess I'm finished! Review away! *Giggle* but please don't rip anyone's head off, especcially mine :D

Lots of missing punctuation. You really need to work.

15th January 2006, 8:59 PM

Felix Feral Fezirix
17th January 2006, 9:12 PM
Ow...The mistakes were so many they burn my eyes. Maybe it's my intolerance of bad punctuation. Yep.

For starters, you were missing periods in some parts like Joe. (Not blasting him or anything but watching his posts you can find a few missing periods) And in one Misty speech you forgot to close it. And there was a total lack of paragraphing in some places.

Ah yes...the plot thickens...But you rushed an important part. Noooooo.

Manaic B*stard: In MY opinion, this punctuation should burn. *summons metal Dragonite and razes punctuation*

...Right...

THe point I railing about is...WHY IS THE PROPOSAL SO DARN SHORT!!!!!!!

Mysteria Pearl
18th January 2006, 4:04 AM
well, I meant it more as a command, not a request. :D That way, Misty really wouldn't have any time to think it over or reject him, just like Matuke planned. but, I see your point, I'll go back and see what I can do :D And please refrain for swearing here and edit.

Felix Feral Fezirix
18th January 2006, 9:01 AM
I changed it to darn. That should be acceptable...

Now we shall wait for Nylf to get in here.

Chapter 15
~~~~~~~~~
"We have to tell the others!" Jane cried as she and Max looked around Keuyu's room again at all the Misty fanthings.

"How can we get to them before it's too late!?" Max asked,
"Besides, Nurse Joy won't let us leave!"

Jane nodded,
"We'll just have to sneak out, tomorrow! Ok?"

"Deal!"
~~~~~
Matuke stroked Misty's hair. She was still in shock.

"I'm... I'm getting married..." Misty whispered to herself as Matuke hugged her gently.

"Yes, my dear, you are. I will have Sliat and Tails fit you for a wedding gown tomorrow! It will be such a lovely wedding!" He kissed her on the tip of her nose,

"Now then, I'll take you back to your quarters and send a doctor to examine you." He picked her up, as lightly as a feather and swept her down to her quarters. He kicked open the door and gently laid Misty down on her bed. Then he leaned down to her ear,
"I love you, so very much!" and without another word, he left.

then there became an awkward silence as Misty stared up at the ceiling with tear-stained eyes

"So... what did he tell you?" Ash asked, his voice muffled and sounding a bit crackly. Misty turned her attention to where he was laying on his bed with a pillow over his face.

Tears started sliding down Misty face and her breathing became stuttered at the thought of being married to Matuke. Immeaditly, Ash sat up and ran to her bed,
"Don't cry! Don't cry! Please!" Ash was desperate,
"Please... I'll do anything! Just don't cry!" Misty sat up and threw her arms around him.

"I-I-I-" Ash gently rubbed Misty's back,
"What?"

"I'm g-g-getting m-married... to Matuke-" She let out a long sobb and continued to cry into Ash's shirt.

"What!?" Ash cried in dismay. Misty slowed her crying,

"D-don't be angry.... if-if I go against him-m he's kill y-you! I-I car-e m-more about y-you than b-being m-m-married t-to him... b-besides... you still h-have to become th-e world's g-reatest p-pokemon mast-er... ri-right?"
Ash sighed and allowed himself to be hugged and cried upon while he was fuming with rage.

*HOW DARE HE! I'LL KILL HIM!*

Pikachu sat up. He had been sleeping until all this ruckass occoured and was now awake. As soon as he saw the "delightful" pose, he pulled out his mini camera and began snapping away maliciously.

During all this mayhem, an un-faced (I mean, not important) doctor came in and began to check Misty over.

"If you wouldn't mind sir, please leave." He said and shooed Ash away. Ash, grumbling, did what he was told and left the room.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
"Do you understand your mission, Rockets?" Missute asked.

"No, not really." James said, looking around the highly guarded room once more.

"Fine! We've been searching around for some spies of some kind. At one point we had captured two of them, but somehow they seemed to have blown out
the whole wall of the cell! One of the girls was a brunette girl with a dog-eared type hairstyle and the other was... I don't know... I was only told details about the older one for some reason." Missute said.
"So, your mission is to apprehend them, bring them back here, and make sure they don't escape once again."

"Yes ma'am!" Jesse, and James said as they grabbed their papers and ran out.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~
"Well then! What do we do now?" May asked Tracey in a whisper as they peered down at the headquarters.

"I have nooooo idea." Brock said as he placed his hand on his chin and took a pose,
"But I bet there are some cute girls that are ready to be rescued!" Sheath took this as he cue and kicked Brock in the butt

Keuyu sweatdropped,
"We have to figure something out soon! My Mi is in there!" He said exasperatedly.

"Hey..." May looked around,
"Where's Drew?" Suddenly she was tackled by behind by Drew and she let out a small "yelp" as Drew nuzzled the back of her head while everybody else sweatdropped.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Meowth looked around him. He had been taken to a room lined with pokeballs,
"Too bad 'dis stuff belowngs to Giovanni alwready, 'cuz I'd lwove to steal 'dem!"

"Silence!" SAid a voice as a great blue Ninetails appeared. the cat pokemon looked up at the big fox

"You may be a credible Team Rocket member but you are under my controll now, understand?" the voice asked.

"Sure." Meowth said as he knodded.

"My plan is to capture all of my great Ninetail brotheren together. You shall help in my plan. Understand?"

Meowth nodded and the Ninetails dissapeared
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
"I did it! I did it!" Matuke called to the vast echoing hall as he spun happily around,
"I'm getting married! I'M GETTING MARRIED!" He skipped joyfully down the hall but suddenly was caught off guard by a certain blue Ninetails.

"So," Yolanda said,
"You have done it. you are getting married." Matuke knelt down and bowed before her,
"Yes! Does thou doth this is the most glorious thing to have ever happened!?"
"Perhaps. How is the boy taking it?" the voice asked.

"I don't know. What have you been up to?" He asked.

"My plan is working." Matuke looked up at her,
"Please, tell me more." The Ninetails levitated him onto her back and then began to walk.

"Well, you know that my plan is to take over the entire population, no?"

"I understand."

"I can only take over one person at a time, at this moment, your disobedient adopted sister, but with the help of all of that master's pokemon, I can controll the entire planet! But..."

"But what?"

"I'm afraid that boy, Ash Ketchum, will interfere! Threaten him, Matuke! I do not want him to mess up my plans! Have him go after those bandits or else you will do something horrible to you fiance!"

Matuke sighed,
"I am thy servant... Mother."
~~~~~~~~~~
Ash stumbled through the halls and bumped into Matuke. Matuke looked down at him,
"I have a propisition for you, Ash Ketchum. Do not interfere with her plans or my wedding or I will do something horrid to my dear Misty, do you understand?" Ash glared up at him, don't knowing who "she" was or what "something" was but he didn't want to find out.

"I understand." Ash said gritting his teeth.

"I also understand you may have some feeling for my soon to be wife." Matuke said, pacing in a half circle around Ash.

Ash turned red,
"UH! WHY THE HECK WOULD I-"

"Admit it. I won't be angered." Ash looked at his shoes,
"Fine. I... I... I.... love her..."

Wow, Misteria! I really like it! Though, I have a question. Is the naintails the mother of Matuke? I don't get that part. Anyway, talk to ya soon.

Mysteria Pearl
4th March 2006, 4:30 PM
muahaha! That's my own little personal secret that you'll find out later... so if you're all like
"What the heck?! Giovanni is Matuke and Keshi's father and Matuke calls the Ninetails 'mother' ?!?!?!"
It's okay, I'm slightly confused too!

I'll try and get the next chappie out as soon as I can!

~ Mysteria Pearl ~

hiya! I have a quick note: all the Ninetails can speak English clearly, since they are very highly intelligent and all it takes for them to create a voice is to think about what they want to say, okaydokey?

Well, here goes!

Chapter 16
Misty laid on her bed staring up at the ceiling. It was almost nightfall already and the dusk glow sent beautiful shadows all over the room, colors from the stain glass window flooding down over her bed.

The doctor had left a while ago and Ash was nowhere in sight. Whereas before Misty had wanted to be alone, now all she wanted was to have company; she was purely lonely. Little did she know that Ash was sitting right outside the brutally beaten bedroom door, crying as well.

Ash thought back to how he had originally had a crush on Misty, from the very first he had laid eyes on her, way back when she had originally pulled him out of the water. He had never dared show it though; permanent mocking would of most assuredly come his way... but now... now Ash's feelings for Misty couldn't simply be described as a mere "crush." He truly loved her (no that isn't a typo and i don't mean "food" instead of "her").

Ash Ketchum truly and genuinely loved Misty Waters.

Ash laid his head against the wall and tried to breathe slower. He had no idea what he would say if he was caught crying in front of Misty.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
"Okay," May said,
"If we all split up we can cover allot-"
Drew covered her mouth with his hand,

"Bad idea. Last time we did that, you two got captured. We all should go in together," Drew whispered. May nodded her head and the other whispered in agreement.

Brock looked up at the sky,
"I think we should head in tonight... that way, I think we have a better chance of not getting caught, agreed?" Brock asked.

Drew, May, Sheathie, Keuyu, and Tracey all agreed.

Drew pointed down the mountain at a big mess of trees,
"We should start heading down real slowly..."

"I see..." Keuyu said,
"We need to stay a little bit apart for two reasons. One, if we're all cought together at the same time and place, we'll have less of a chance to escape. But if they capture, say two of us, then two can attack from the inside while the others can make an outside attack. Secondly, we won't be as easy to spot if we're all not together."

"We should always be able to see each other." Brock added,
"So that we can see when or if another is captured or in trouble.

Tracey nodded,
"That's a good plan. Hopefully, though, they don't know we're still here or we could be heading for bumpy roads." May licked Drew had and immeaditly he retracted it from her face,

"We'll do fine," She said,
"After all, we've been in tons of movies and like a bazillion episodes, and we've never even dies once... although my hair has frizzled quite a few times!" Sheathie giggled.

"Let's do it!" She said in a tiny, little voice.

"I'll head down the slope with May." Drew said, as he took May's hand, pulled her down to her knees and they began crawling diagnally towards the big mess of trees, about a quarter of a mile away.

"I'll go with Sheathie." Keuyu said as he pulled Sheath onto his back and began to crawl, the opposite way of May and Drew, down the mountain.

"Guess that leaves you and me." Brock said. He and Tracey parted ways and also began to crawl down the hill.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Yolanda stood up high on a cliff,
"Now to put my master plan into action." She phased away and rephased where she had been keeping the other Ninetails and just recently the Meowth,

"My minions," She said,
"We are going to take out the human population, take control of them and use them for what we want. First, we shall conquer the forest and water areas that surrounds the nearby cities, then, we shall creep in little by little towards the center, until we have captured their whole land. Then we will move on. Now then, Meowth here will be our negotiator between the human kind and us, report to him if you have any problems. Also," She said narrowing her eyes,
"You will have no choice in following me or not. As you can see, while before you were unconscious, I had special collars placed around your necks. If I even think bout you in a bad way, which I won't do unless you betray me, It will immediately send a repulsive and practically deadly shockwave through your bodies. Do you understand?" She asked.

The ninetails grumbled to themselves and each other,
"Yes..." They repeated,
"Agreed."

"Then my minions! Split, divide and conquer!" Yolanda's voice cried. Almost immediately, all the ninetails phased away, to where they had been assigned.

"wonderful..." Yolanda mumbled,
"They are now under my control..."
Yolanda phased away to the current battle field where she was about to conquer.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Keshi sat straight up in her royal throne. she clutched her chest as she felt as if some mysterious dark cloud was slowly lifting from her heart. Suddenly, as if out of nowhere, she could think, and even move a little bit on her own.

"Is... is Yolanda... moving out of range...?" She asked herself, raising her shaking hand up to her face. Nothing special, right? Wrong. She could move it, from her own free will, not Yolanda's. Carefully she stood, walking, almost tumbling down the hall.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
"Do you see them?" Jesse asked James as they knelt on the cliff, overlooking everything.

"No, Jess. Do you?" James asked, looking through his binoculars.

"Nope."
~~~~~
yay! That's all for now! see ya later! PLEASE REVIEW!

Chapter 17

“Okay,” May whispered to Drew, once they had reached a bi tree at the bottom of the cliff… hill… mountain… thingy…
“So, what do we do now?”

“We should wait for the others to get here.” May sat down on Drew’s lap as they continued to wait
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Keshi broke through a tangle of trees, receiving cuts and gashes all along her arms, legs and face,
*What if she comes back? She’ll find me! She’ll know where I am! I can’t let that happen! I can’t! No longer am I going to be a mind slave! But what if she does find me!? She’ll harm me for sure!” Keshi suddenly came upon the tiny village in the inside of the base walls. She had never been outside the “castle” though, so she had no idea what to do.

No one would recognize her now, though, it looked as if she was caught in the middle of a fight between two legendary pokemon. She grabbed a garment from a stand near her, throwing a gold coin at the man, and ran away. Once she was out of sight, she wrapped the cloth around her face and head as she fled through the streets. Finally she got to the outer wall, only a few yards away from the gate. She snuck up to the huge wooden doors and looked around to see if anyone was around to see her.

Carefully, with bloody hands, she pulled the gigantic doors open a bit, slipping easily through them and running off into the woods.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Finally, Keu, Sheathie, Brock, and Tracey, made it to where May and Drew where waiting.

“What’s the plan?” Brock asked.

“It would be better to split up onto two or three teams again for the night, I wouldn’t recommend going in there now… we’d get slaughtered.”

“I wanna go with May-May-ni.” Sheathie said, grabbing onto May’s hand.

“Okay, cutie, you can come with me and Drew!” May said Happily as Drew took her other hand and they walked away.

“Me and Tracey’ll wait by the wall tonight.” Brock said as he and Tracey walked away to the right edge of the wall.

“I guess I’ll just go it alone.” Keuyu said to himself, rubbing the back of his blonde head as he turned and headed just to the left of himself.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Keshi stopped running. She was exhausted, hadn’t eaten anything in quite awhile and was feeling a bit faint. She stumbled through yet another patch of trees and tripped over something. She hurtled forward, to tired to try and stop herself from falling, and she almost fell on top of a blonde boy.

Keuyu sat up,
“Where’d you come from!?” He asked the bloody girl

“P-Please h-help me…” She begged, closing her eyes and beginning to rapidly shake. Keu quickly removed his jacked and shirt and laid them on top of the rugged-looking girl.

*Her dress must have been expensive, before it was torn up like this. It’s a hoop skirt and the material looks very costly.* Keuyu thought to himself,
“What happened? Who are you?” He asked her.

“I escaped… just in time… but she may be coming after me… my name is Princess Keshi Haetaka…” She mumbled, just loud enough for Keu to hear.

“Who? Who was it? You’re a princess? Of this land?”

“I… I can’t tell you… I would be beheaded if I told you… yes… I am one of the three rulers of this land…” With that, her voice faded away as she passed out. Keu put his hand on her head and pulled back her bangs, caked with blood. He pulled a water bottle out of his backpack, took out a hanky, wet it, and began to gently wash her face and hair.

After about a half hour, Keuyu had fully washed her hair, face, and was working on her arms. After he was done with that, he carefully bandaged her arms, starting from her fingertips up.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~
Sheathie was following May around like a little duckling, always holding onto her shirt or hand. It had to be the most adorable little thing ever- a little girl who was less than like four feet tall following May around.

Drew watched this, smiling, as he leaned with his back against a tree.

“Geez, that kid likes you, huh, May?” Drew asked, grinning. May sat down on his lap, and Sheathie sitting on her lap.

“May-May, how many hours until dawn?” Sheath asked.

“I don’t know… maybe eight hours, just don’t worry about it and go to sleep.”

“Okay.” Sheathie said as she fell asleep
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
“MAMAMAMAMAMAMAMAMA!” Janie cried as she jumped into her mother’s arms.

“Yes?”
Jane grinned,
“I don’t know, hi!”
Max waddled up to the pair, droopy-eyed and sleepy looking.

“My, My, Maximillion. Looks like you two should get some sleep. Go run upstairs and get into your jammies, I’ll be right there to come and tuck you in.”

“Okay!” Jane said as she grabbed Max’s hand and practically dragged him to the elevator.

“How does she sustain that hyperness?” Nurse Joy asked as she collapsed onto a chair.

“Jane.” Max whispered, once they were upstairs,
“Pack up tonight, we’ll leave tomorrow morning.”

“Okay.” Jane said as they went their different ways.

Back downstairs, the phone rang for Nurse Joy.

“Hello?” She asked, she almost had to bit her tongue not to say “This is the Pokemon Center, how may I help you?”

“Ma’am! Something horrible is happening! Something’s been attacking all the pokemon! Case after case, they’re thoroughly severed! We can cover for you tonight, but you have to come back tomorrow!”

Nurse Joy was shocked,
“But I’m sitting two children- my daughter and a young lady’s brother. I just don’t think they’re responsible enough to leave alone!”

“You simply have to come back!” The nurse begged from the other end,
“Your first priority is a doctor, you took an oath! Just hurry back!” The girl on the other end hung up and Nurse Joy sat down at the table, an expression-less look on her face. Then she buried her face in her hands and began to weep.

*What is my first priority? A mother or a doctor!? I’m so confused!*
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~
*Where am I? Why is my face wet? What’s going on? How come I can think for myself? Who’s toughing my hand?* Keshi slightly opened her eyes and found a blonde boy sitting next to her, her hand in his, looking concernedly down at her.
“Are you alright, Princess Keshi?” The boy asked.

“Whom are you?” She whispered as she struggled to sit up.

“Do not try to get up!- you’ll hurt yourself!” Keu said as he helped her sit up,
“My name’s Keuyu Vertipalgia (hehe, that’s the first time I’ve added his last name XD), but you may call me Keu.

“Why thank you, my knight in shining armor You were most kind to tend to me.”

“It was nothing, my fair lady.” He said, taking her hand lightly in his and kissing it.

“Well, Mr. Vertipalgia, why on earth are you here at this very moment?”

“One of my dearest friends is being held in there,” He said pointing in the direction of the base,
“Her name is Misty Waters. She’s being escorted my a boy of the name Ash Ketchum. Have you seen them, by any chance?”

Keshi was shocked- no, lemme rephrase that. She was horrified,
“My brother had them arrested and they’re being held captive in the base! By the way,” She said tugging at Keu’s pant leg,
“You people out here dress strangely. A few strangers who found their way into the city this week were wearing similar garments. What are these?” She asked, pointing to his jeans.”

“You’re from a different place, aren’t you?” Keu asked as he sat down once again and began to explain about the current fads of the time
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
“Hey Tracey, whaddaya think Ash and Misty are doing right now?” Brock asked as he uncomfortably shifted his place in the tiny, thorny, bush they were hiding in.

“Ash is probably eating, Misty’s probably steamed, and they’re probably flirting like idiots- very confused idiots.”

“Yeah…” Brock said as he was poked in the eye by a twig (they shoulda listened to what their mommies said: do hide from palace guards in thorny bushes with one of your friends because you could poke your eye out) Tracey was already asleep before he could hear Brock yelp in pain.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~
Ash had finally been able to stop crying. He stood, wiped his eyes, and carefully pulled the wooden door open. Silently, he tip-toed inside,

“Ash?” Misty’s voice asked, wavering. The room was pitch-black, other than the moonlight coming through the stain glass window.

“I’m sorry I- I didn’t come back for awhile…”

“Ash…?” Misty asked.

“Yeah?” Ash said as he knelt down to Misty’s bed, bringing his face relatively close to hers.

“I’m scared… I’m scared of getting married to someone I hardly know… in three days… but…” She whispered,
“I know Matuke himself isn’t bad… I just…” Ash gently took her cold, shaking hand in his own, gently rubbing it and entangling his fingers with hers. Misty’s heart leaped- she was beginning to feel better as she felt Ash’s hand toughing hers, it just comforted her.

“Ash…thank you… you … I… I’m glad I fished you out of that river, that day… but perhaps… this all wouldn’t have happened if I hadn’t have met you… you would have just gone to Cerulean and battled one of my sisters, then you would have met some other friend… and… and… you wouldn’t have to be held here… I’d just be… somewhere else… but… I’m so happy… I’m so glad I know you, Ash, I’m glad I met you… thank you…” Ash sat there, almost in tears. It hit him so hard that Misty would marry someone just for the reason that he would be safe.

“No, Misty, I should thank you, you’re the best friend I can imagine.” Ash whispered as he stroked Misty’s hair, blushing like a geek who accidentally was tricked into a cool person’s party.

Misty smiled a little and soon drifted off to sleep. Ash let go of her hand and went to his own bed; to sleep
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
May woke up a bit fershmazzled, (don’t bother looking it up in the dictionary, it’s not there) and confused. She was on Drew’s lap and Sheathie was on her lap. Drew put his chin on her head,
“Are you awake, May?” He whispered.

“Yes, do you think the others are up yet?”

“Maybe… Let’s go down and see if Brock and Tracey are up yet. I’ll carry Sheath.”

“Okay.” May said as she got up and handed him the little girl, whom he slung on his back. May then slipped her arm around his waist as they descended quietly down the mountain.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~
After hours of explaining, Keu had finally worn Keshi out and she had fallen asleep. Since, of course, he was a gentle-man, he set her head on his lap and he had placed, once again, his shirt and jacket on top of her.

Keshi’s eyes fluttered and she opened them, staring at some blue cotton material. She sat up and looked at the teenage boy who was sleeping against the trunk of a tree,
“Master Keuyu, Master Keuyu, please arise- er… awaken… no that’s not it… ah! Wake up, Keu!” The blonde’s head rolled forward and he opened his eyes,
“Yo, Princess.” Keshi giggled at his remark,
“Shall we be going?” She asked as he got up.

“I don’t know, maybe. I gotta go find the rest of my friends, they’re scattered around in the forest, are you thirsty or hungry.”

“I am a smidget famished. But I’ll be fine.” Keu pulled out his water bottle and handed it to her,
“Drink some of this so you don’t get dehydrated. Then we’ll go find my friends.” Keshi looked at the clear plastic bottle, not knowing how to open it.

“Silly girl,” Keu said as he unscrewed the bottle cap. He took a sip and then handed it to her.

“Are you sure it’s alright, I mean, I wouldn’t want to inconvenience you in any way.”

“It’s fine.” Keu said as Keshi took a sip. Then she handed the water bottle back to him and they began to walk hand in hand down the hill… mountain… cliff… thingy.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
“Okay, kids, now I’m going back to the Pokemon Center. I’ll try to be back as soon as possible. Now, you know where everything is, and Officer Jenny will be coming to take care of you while I’m gone. Bye!” Nurse Joy said as she headed down the long driveway, towards the road.

“We gotta get outta here quick before Jenny comes!” Jane said, jumping up and down.

“Muahahahaha! Let’s get going!” Max cried like a maniac as they ran back into the house to get their things.

They had figured that Ash and the gang (but mostly Ash) would probably be hungry, and knowing them, they would have already made acquaintances with new people, maybe even had gotten someone to join their “gang,” so they brought food, water, and two little kid-sized sleeping bags. They grabbed their stuff, wrote a quick note, stuck it on the door and finally left.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
“Miss, Miss!” Misty shot up in bed like a rocket,
“Who’s there!?” She cried, totally disoriented.

“Rise and shine, shine!” Guess who? That’s right. Slait and Tails, up an’ at em’

“Time for measuring for your wedding dress, dress!” The little green haired woman said excitedly.

“This way, way!” She said, pulling Misty out of bed and turning on the bright gas lights. Ash sat up and groaned,
“Morning already?”

“Five AM, M!” Slait said,
“You can come too, too!” She took [the groggy] Ash’s hand and led them again to the closet.

“Master, you get dressed here, here. Madam, they’ll dress you there, there!” Ash lazily pulled a black shirt over his head to match his mood. Slait goaded Misty out of the room,

“Master, Master! We’ll be just down the hall to the left, left if you wanna see your friend in the dress, dress!” With that, the trio (Slait, Tails, and Misty) sped away, out of sight around the corner, closing the door behind them.

Ash finally, after about ten minutes, was able to get those stupid billowy pants on right and went where Slait had instructed. He knocked on the door.

“Come in!” Ash walked in and was faced with the most beautiful creature alive (to him)

Misty was standing on a mirror block, wearing… well…
Her veil was lined with flowers and pearls and the gauzy material flowed elegantly down her shoulders, over her long orange hair. She was wearing a gold and pearl necklace that dangled just above the neck of her dress.
Her dress was so beautifully designed- it had a square cut neck with lace lining the edge and a bodice-like front with a beautiful blue ribbon tying it. Right before the dress bottom started, there was another fringe of lace, the skirt part was like a hoop skirt, a very large radius, I must add.

Have you seen Cinderella’s dress? This was a whole lot better!

It had material draping over the back and flowing down, leaving room down the center where a whole strip was adorned with lace and ribbons. Underneath that was a beautiful gold material, shiny and soft, and underneath that, billowing out was a soft blue material. In one hand she was holding a scepter-type rod, that was covered with gold, jewels, ribbons, and precious stoned, and in the other, a fake bouquet of what her flowers were to look like.

“Ash!” Misty called as she jumped down of the pedestal. She couldn’t even see her feet, so she almost fell over, luckily Ash caught her- I mean, Mr. Tomato-faced-man caught her.

Tomato-face, meet carrot-head. Carrot-head, meet Tomato-face.
(I can say carrot head cuz I have orange hair too)

“I-I-I- wow… you look…” Ash stuttered

“Yes?” Misty asked, smiling cutely, making him blush like an even bigger dork.

“You… look… wow… you… look gorgeous.” Wow, great going, tomato-face man! You said it!

Misty grinned, taking this as a good opportunity to zone in on her flirting-and-making-boys-faces-red technique.

“How sweet! I didn’t think it was possible for you to be such a gentleman!” She said sweetly, hugging Ash. Wow, I need to get a tape recorder, that’s a new kind of red. I’d describe it, but it’s not on any of my color pallets so… just imaging for yourself a strawberry that just exploded mixed with cherries just out of the blender.

“I-I-I-” Was all Ash could possibly choke out.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Jenny stepped on it, zooming through the forest on her new motorcycle,
“I love meh job!” She yelled, to nobody in particular. Suddenly, she could have sworn she saw a flash of blue. Stopping her bike, she called,
“Janie? Aint dat you? It’s Auntie Jenny, an’ if you’re running away er somethin’ I won’t be mad, heck, I probably love adventures more than you do.” Immediately two little kid heads popped out from in a bush,
“Hi Auntie Jenny! Will you help us with something?” Janie asked

“Introductions first, young lady. Who’s your pardner?” Jenny asked as she stooped down

“This is Max. Max, this is my auntie Jenny.”

“Wait! Your mother’s sister is a Jenny? But she a Joy! And you’re a Jane and your mother’s not your real mother, but this is still your aunt? Does that mean you’re a Jenny, not a Joy or Jane?” (Max, if you would be so kind, please be quiet. You’re making my head hurt, as well as at least three people from the audience)

“I just act like her Aunt. I’m best buds with her ma’, so we hand out a lot.”

“This is so confusing.” Max said, pulling of his glasses and cleaning them on his shirt.

“SO, kids, where ya’ll headin’? You’re packed for at least a three day trip, plus stuff even. Now don’t tell me you were goin’ out at’ find butterfrees-”

“We’re going to find Ash, Misty, Brock, Keuyu, May, Drew, Brock, Tracy, and anybody else who they picked up along the way!” Jane bubbled.

“Ah see.” Jane said.

“So, do ya kids know exactly where ya’ll headin?’ I could give ya‘ll a ride if ya be needin’ it,” Jenny said.

“Actually, we have no idea where we’re going. You see, Misty and Ash went out or something, and then when they didn’t come back the rest of our friends went in search of them, and now, they woulda called or something, so we wanted to go out and find them. Plus, we have something to tell one of our friends.” Janie said, smiling.

“Ah see. We haven’t got any calls about a kidnappin’ or any missin’ kids in the area… well, how long have they been missin’?”

Jane thought,
“A couple of days, I suppose-”

“Usually they’re only gone for like a day!” Max chimed in.

“Well, ya’ll can come with meh, and we’ll find ‘em together, kay?”

“Okay!” Max and Janie said as Officer Jenny slung them up onto her motorcycle.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~
“My dear!” Misty had already changed out of her wedding dress and she and Ash were waiting in the main hall for Matuke.

They turned, seeing Matuke enter the room,
“Are you two ready to head off to the onsen?” He asked. Misty faked a smile up at him,
“Of course.”

Matuke nodded,
“You may head out to the carriage, while I find a servant to carry your things.” .

“By and by,” Matuke added,
“This onsen is newly constructed, you see, and it had different rules. The gender’s aren’t separated, instead you wear basking- I mean bathing attire--”

“You mean swimsuites?” Ash asked.

Matuke scratched his head,
“I suppose…”

Awkward silence

Sweatdrop

Multiple sweatdrops

Growing tension

Yeah…

Misty grabbed Ash’s hand, she was actually almost excited-- in a strange sort of way. She loved hot springs, in fact she simply adored them-- and dragged him outside of the castle.

“Please hurry with whatever your true plan may be, Master Yolanda, I cannot buy you very much time.” Matuke whispered into nothingness.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
"PIKACHU?" Meowth shouted as Pikachu was placed in the cage beside him,
"So, pipsqueak, what 'cha in fow (for)?"

"Pi pipipi pi pika pikachu" (I don't know, I was sleeping and then, I was here, Ash and misty are going somewhere.)

"Da Twerps ah' here too!?"

"Pi pi" (yes, here)
~~~~~~~~~
On the carriage ride, there were no windows or curtains, Misty suspected whoever was in charge didn’t want Matuke seeing the outside world. The seats were made of plum coloured velvet, and a single gas lamp hung, swinging from the roof. The inside of it was covered with gold material, with tassels and all. Gold coloured pillows scattered about and such.

“Matuke, how much longer before we get there?” Misty asked.

Matuke had seated Misty next to himself and Ash across, glaring at him.

Matuke reached up and rang a bell, attached to the outside of the carriage. In return there were three short rings.

“That means about three minutes left before we arrive,” he said as he wrapped his arm around her tensed shoulders,
“My dear, you back seems to be very knotted up, I’ll have to give you a massage once we arrive.” Misty’s face suddenlt turned about three shades redder,
“No- really, I’m fine!”

This whole scene faded away in Ash’s mind, the entire night did. All his mind kept going back on was Misty in that gorgeous wedding dress. His mind didn’t register when the carriage stopped or he got out, or when Matuke showed them their rooms, or when they separated to change. He didn’t have Pikachu with him to snap him out of that, though, because everyone knows Pokemon aren’t allowed to Royal Hot Springs or Onsens; Matuke had forced him to stay behind.

*She looked so beautiful…* Ash’s mind randomly thought as he changed into an old-fashioned-looking pair of brown and red swim trunks and he ran out to the hot, steaming pool of water.

“Hey Ashy!” Ash turned and almost instantly fell into the water out of shock. There was Misty, in yet another stunning bathing suit. It was just like a extremely short dress made out of a dark blue cotton-like material, which covered a regular bathing suit.

“Gah-gah-gah-gahhhhhh” Well, basically Ash thought that, but he kinda said it too.

“Ash..? You’re drooling… not that you look all that bad yourself” Misty said, making a funny face at him.

“Ah, Misty, are you ready for the glorious sensation of the onsen?” Matuke asked, coming up behind them and placing his arm around her waist. Ash, once again, silently fumed, steamingly angry. Matuke gently helped Misty in and then pulled her onto his lap and began to massage her shoulders. Ash also got in but crossed his arms and closed his eyes.

“By and by,” Matuke said,
‘Remember Ash, tonight, you and I shall be sharing a room, due to the short number of rooms available. Misty-kun, you will have a separate room, alright?” Misty nodded
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Two hours later, when Matuke, Ash and Misty all looked like raisons, they decided to get out and get ready for bed. None of these facts, either, reached Ash’s mind. He just followed what the guy in front of him.

Misty got into bed, and was beginning to freak out.

*I’m getting married… and my Pokemon… what about them? What’s happened to them…? Married… but… I’m not even fifteen… well… here the legal marriage age is fourteen… but… I’m going to be a wife… and soon have children of my own--” That pulled her over the top. She couldn’t even think about that, heck, even thinking about Matuke as her husband gave her the shivers,
*Why? Why couldn’t it be him? Ash. I’m just… so scared… and I… I don‘t even understand my own feelings… I’m getting married…* Her body began to shake rapidly.

“Ash?” She whispered into darkness, wishing for an answer; begging in her mind.
Of course, there was no reply. So, Misty stared up at the cieling, in that utter darkness, shivering, crying and lonely.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
“Ash,” Matuke said seriously as he sat down on one of the two beds in the room,

“I could not speak privately to you earlier, but I would like to repeat my warning. My master has commanded that if you admit your feelings to a certain young woman, she and you shall be severely punished, to almost the point of death. Do you understand? You must not get in my way, no matter how you feel! She is becoming my wife in a few days, and I will not have you interfering with my plans any longer, understood?”

Ash gritted his teeth as he turned out the light and got into bed,
“Clear as crystal.”
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

As both Ash and Misty closed their eyes, they both dreaded the day to follow, as well as every day after that. Panic began to stricken their minds as their eye-lids fell still, awaiting sunrise.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

So, how’d ya like it? Was it good? I hope so! Yay! You asked for a longer chappie so I gave ya’ll one… yes I know I gave Jenny a South West accent, but… yeah…

The description of her dress burns me. Not to be insulting or whatever, but that's the best piece of description thoughout the whole story.

Meh. Your paragraphing is still horrible. Quite a lot less typos (but still a lot), and you seem to like putting people's heads in laps, do you? >_<

The hot spring part seemed rushed. Whoosh. I freaked out. I could tell. >_<

Meh.-waits for next chapter-

ummmm... thank you? I'll try and make it more discriptive, and I'm sorry that you feel that way...

I do my paragraphing the way I do because, through a survey of my friends and superiors, I've found that if you make paragraphs far too long or too consistant, people sometimes get annoyed and start skimming.

But if I do very very short paragraphs, people also may just skim. So I try and keep it in the center. I'm very sorry if it bothers you but there's more to a story than paragraphing!

I also checked it on spell check four times, so I'm sorry if I missed something.

Thank you for the reply, though! I will try and fix those things!

EDIT: Ha, this is an update, like after like the 24th, my internet has been going haywire, so I'm right now working on the chappie! Yay, I should get it out real soon, but don't kill me if I'm slow...

~MP~

EDIT: By the way, the saying "clear as chyrstal" is a pun because, I have the chrystal game, Irena gave it 2 me for my b-day, and sometimes I'm so angry with it that I just don't get it and I say it's clear as chrystal, meaning I don't get it, but in Ash's context, it means he understands. Me though, I don't get the entire thing. How on earth did I even start this fic and actually figure out how to finish it. Like my name states: MYSTERIous (Mysteria? Get it?)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Update:

In this chappie, you’ll meet relatives of Sliat and Tails- Teef and Feet! Yay! READ STRAIGHT THROUGH TO THE END!!!! Ash and Misty mushyness, yay!
Chapter 18

“MISS MISTY!” Misty bolted up and out of bed, almost completely bouncing off the mattress. Next to her bed stood a little lady who looked just like Sliat. Standing next to her, only about a foot high was a tiny Ninetails, almost like Tails.

“Who are you, how do you know my name and why are you in here?” Misty asked, almost freaked out at the way-too-peppy small blue haired lady,
“I’M SLIAT’S TWIN TEEF! AND THIS IS MY NINETAILS, FEET! FEET’S THE TWIN OF TAILS! WE WORK HERE AT THE ONSEN AND WERE SENT AS YOUR WAKE UP CALL!” She said, rather loudly

“Oh,” Misty said. She had forgotten that she was still at the hot springs. The night before, she had fallen asleep in tears so her mind was still a-boggle.

“I’VE BEEN ASKED TO GET YOU DRESSED AND BRING YOU DOWN FOR BREAKFAST! WHAT COLOUR SHALL YOU BE WEARING TODAY, MISS MISTY?

Misty groaned as she sat up and rubbed her eyes,
“Uh… how about orange? Do you even have orange velvet?” Teef grinned,
“WE HAVE THIS LOVELY SILK AND VELVET DRESS!” she said, exuberantly running to the closet and practically ripping out a halter top made of silk that would go down to Misty’s ankles. There were pleats of Velvet sewn in with gold thread and all of it floated with amazing grace.

Misty yawned,
“Thank you, Sl- I mean, Teef.” It took her a second to get the name right, in all of her glory... Did I say glory? I meant grogginess.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Ash sleepily arose to find Matuke sitting at the window, elegantly sipping at a cup of tea,
“Finally, you’re up.” He said, without even turning away from the sunrise. His bed had already been made, he had bathed and he was fully dressed.

“Whatever.” Ash said as he sat up and ran his fingers through his tangled mane.

“You better hurry to get dressed, we’re supposed to meet my future wife in the dining hall.” Ash cringed when he said “future wife”

Matuke, with the hand not holding the teacup, pointed to the huge dresser at the end of the room,
“Clothes are in there.”
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Jenny’s motorcycle roared through the thick forest, making it’s way through trees and brush,
“Sorry there’s only one extra helmet!” Jenny called back to Jane and Max as they clung to each other for dear life, Jane wearing the helmet at present.

“That’s fine” Max called as he was whacked in the face by a tree branch, getting a mouthful of leaves, flowers and a squirrel. How a squirrel got from his face down his shirt and then down his pants is so far beyond me.

“AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH H!” He screamed. Jenny feared that he had been flung off so she quickly halted the cycle. Max jumped off dancing around like a wild animal, screaming something about a rodent.

“What wrong with him?” Officer Jenny asked, scratching her forehead. Jane sweat dropped,
“Just smile and pretend you understand.”
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
May yawned again.
“May, shhhh…” Drew whispered as he grabbed her around the waist. They were waiting by the gate, but Keu hadn’t shown up yet. Brock and Tracey were next to them, also pressed up against the wall.

“Should we go in without them?” Brock whispered to the rest of them.

“I think so,” Drew said,
“We’ll get to Ash and Misty sooner.” The rest agreed.

“But how should we do it?” Sheathie asked. She knew that inside, the people dressed in draping, old fashion, like old dessert villages.

“She’s right. They’ll obviously realize that we’re foreigners.” May whispered.

“Hey, there’s Team Rocket bases around here aren’t there? We could just be transfers from far away.” Tracy said.

Sheathie pointed to the headbands May and Tracy were wearing,
“In Team Rocket bases, you aren’t allowed to wear anything in your hair, other that a Team Rocket hat.” Then she also pointed to their shoes and coats,
“Also, no shoes in forests. We don’t wear coats unless we’re under the extremes.”

“We could always leave them here.” Brock pointed out,

“Yes, but then they might find them and suspect us.” Drew argued back.

“How about… we put them where they’d least look for them?” May asked, pointing up into a tree.

Drew practically glomped her,
“Perfect!” He grabbed all heir belongings and scurried up the tree, tying down all of their stuff and silently descended.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Keshi hugged her knees,
“I don’t particularly want to go back in there.” she said to Keu. Keuyu, in return, leaned up against the tree,
“Please, Miss Keshi, won‘t you help me find my friends?”

“They- they aren’t here…” She whispered.

“WHAT?!” Keuyu almost screamed.

“Yes, they, all three, are out right now, but they’ll be back soon. There’s no point to go back in right now… at least… I don’t think we’d get very far before we’re caught. P-plus... I’m scared…” Keu sat down across from her,
“I… I find it hard to be afraid… for myself…” he said.

“Hmmn?”

“Well, my friends are in real danger, they’ve been found and all. And I… I have no clue as to where they are or what’s happening to them-”

“Married,” Keshi interrupted.

“Pardon?” Keuyu asked politely.

“Married. Misty’s going to be wed to my brother, Matuke.”

Keuyu almost fell backwards,
“WHAT!!!??? My Mi is getting married to a man she just met!? She’s only fourteen!”

“Yes… but my brother has decided... The wedding is... tomorrow.”

Keu’s head almost exploded. Keshi giggled,
“You are too sweet, Keu, you’re worrying so over your friends.” She said as she took his hand
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Ash sat at the table, fiddling with his fork (you know, it takes a real imagination to be able to gain entertainment with a eating utensil. Matuke just sat majestically at the far end of the table, eyes glued to the door

Meanwhile, Misty was being sped down the halls by Teef and Feet.

“MISS MISTY, COME ON!” she cried as she dragged Misty around a corner and into the dining hall. Ash gaped at Misty, as did Matuke. Matuke stood and kissed her hand,

“Darling,” he said, making Ash cringe,
“How was your rest? I do hope it was peaceful enough.”

Misty forced a smile onto her face,
“It was fine, thank you, Matuke-k-ku-kun.”

She could clearly see Ash’s jealousy, she hated to see him sad, but she had no clue why he was jealous. After all, they were best friends- he should be happy for her... Even if she wasn’t even happy for herself. She could also clearly see Ash making a total fool of himself by staring with his mouth open and holding a fork for no apparent reason 0_o

“Please,” Matuke said,
“Sit, our breakfast is waiting,” He pulled out a chair for her and she sat. Then Matuke himself sat down.

Ash had regained composure... Well as much composure that he originally had (that’s not a lot) and just sat with a pouty look on his face.

“So,” Matuke said,
“We’ll be leaving straight after breakfast, and if we have no further delays, we’ll be back at the castle (He still has no idea the castle is really inside a humongous secret base) by noontide.” (do people actually use that word anymore? I know I do… and I guess he does too.)

“From there,” He continued,
“You’ll have a little free time to do whatever you please until dinner. I’m terribly sorry if there’s any ’havoc,’ so to speak; tomorrow is our wedding after all, and there may be a few last minute things to do. Oh! But isn’t it SO exciting!? They’re having the whole hall redecorated!”

Misty smiled as he continued on. Once again, the true Matuke had shoe through. He was so happy, almost like a little child a day before their birthday, anticipating all the presents they were going to receive.

*I just wish he could really find love… not one sided.. But actually be happy… with a girl who loves him as much as he loves her.*

As much as she loves him. If only Ash loved her as much as she loves him. But as she thought about it, it was impossible, really. After all, this is the same guy who in countless movies and specials STILL didn’t get that she adored him. Time after time, he was so dense.

These thoughts made her a bit sad until Matuke cleared his throat,
“Darling, Volfere wants to know what you would like to eat,” he said.

Misty looked up from her empty plate at the French-looking butler,
“Oh… I’ll just have some tea and… some pancakes.” The man nodded and left. As he returned, he gave Misty her breakfast, Matuke some toast and Ash… about everything left in the kitchen, which seemed to satisfy him for the time being.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Drew cautiously stepped up to the doors. At any usual base, there would be guards totally surrounding the entire camp.

“We won’t meet any guards out here. They’ve all been staying inside the big building lately.” Sheath said. Tracey nodded as he and Brock shoved at the door “successfully” opening it a crack. Luckily, the crack was just bi enough for them all to squeeze through, although May had a hard time getting her huge hairstyle through 0_o

Inside, it was just like an old dessert village, everyone wearing beige draping clothes. The five looked a little peculiar wearing all their colourful garments until they dashed to a clothing cart and bought some clothes from a (luckily, once again) blind man who gave them a really good deal.

AS soon as they changed, they began to sneak through the city. These people looked at them strangely and they only caught a bit of rough-conversation, rough meaning rough English, like it was a secondary language,

“… paint on she face?”

“…Odd yellow hair…”

“…Strange peoples…”

“--Seen them never have I!”

“--Boy wearing a plant green his hand on or is boy’s hair green?”

They also caught bitts and pieces of their language that sounded a little like this

“Beng jou i karguath stach gon? Jueidenmp er pertyal? Oi de hagur mah korker.”

As they began to run into more and more people they began hiding their faces and shuffled through the city more quickly when a mean looking old woman stopped them,
“Who is you! Me never see before!”

“I-” They tried to think up an excuse,
“We’re new arrivals.”

“No new arrivals until Tuesday.” She said blankly then she threw her head back and screamed in her loudest voice,
“INTRUDERS!” Now, I’m sure you don’t have time to read all the details, but they ran, a bunch of strong, burly-looking men (as well as that freaky old lady) chased them and finally caught them. Immediately, they dragged them back into the jail, with a new makeshift wall to replace the old broken one for the time being.

“Hey!” May shouted,
“Don’t WE get a fair trial!?”

“Prince and Princess gone. Come back soon. ‘Till then, you stay here.” May pouted as she sat down in Drew’s lap with Sheathie sitting down on hers.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Officer Jenny finally got the squirrel out of Max’s pants but by that time, they were all hungry and tired so they decided to stop and take a rest, as well as have a bit of lunch,
“So,” Jenny asked, taking a bite of her sandwich,
“How long have weird ‘tings been going on around here?”

Max thought,
“It started in about the year of 1996...” (The year Pokemon started! XD)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The carriage bumped along the road and there was an awkward silence between the three of them.

“So…” Matuke said,
“Who would you like to be brought to the wedding?” He asked Misty.

“Well…” She said thoughtfully,
“I’d enjoy if you’d allow my three sisters come and wish me good luck…”

*For the possibly worst day of my life,* She added in her mind.

“Is there anyone else? Perhaps your parents?” Of course, Matuke had no idea what parents really were, of course, he had always been told since he could remember that Yolanda was his mother, and she was. He had read in some ancient texts about mothers and fathers who saved their children or went away to ancient wars, but he still didn’t quite understand what they really were.

“My mother and father died long ago.” Misty said quietly. Matuke took her hand while Ash scowled,
“I’m so very sorry, my dear

“B…but I would like my friend Keuyu Vertipalgia to come.”

“Alright,” Matuke said,
“That sounds reasonable enough. Anyone else?” Ash grunted,
“I’m sure my mom and Professor Oak would want to come.” Misty agreed.

“Alright. I will do the best I can.” Matuke said as the carriage came to a halt. As the door opened, a guard ran up the it,
“Master Matuke, we have a few problems!”

Matuke rolled his eyes,
“What now?” He asked.

“Well,” The man said,
“First, we saw your sister fleeing the castle and out into the forest. Secondly, we have some more intruders.”

Matuke scowled,
“I’ll deal with all this later. Now, please escort my lovely Misty and Ash to their rooms.” The man quickly took them to their quarters and left them alone until dinner.

“Ash…” Misty said quietly as Ash laid facedown on his bed. Ash grunted.

“I’m really scared…” She said.
“Now don’t get me wrong, I AM going to get married to Matuke, it’s the only way you won’t get hurt.” Ash’s back began to shake and she heard kind of snickering type sounds coming from him.

“Ash Ketchum, are you laughing at me!?” she asked. His back started to calm,
“No.” He answered, face still hidden by the pillow.

“Okay… whatever…” She said as she began again,
“And I’m really afraid for my pokemon-- and Pikachu too! Do you think they’ll be okay?” She asked to Ash who’s back was moving up and down again, as well as his shoulders.

“Yes…” He said slowly. Misty decided to leave it at that and went to get a hairbrush. Whenever she was nervous, she would usually absent-mindedly start combing her hair for no reason.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Night had come more quickly than anyone thought. Soon, and awkward dinner between Misty, Ash and Matuke had finished and Matuke had absolutely refused to see May and the others. So, that left Drew, May, Brock, Tracey, and Sheathie left in the jail cell over night.

The shifts had just changed and a young purple-haired lady and a tall blonde man had replaced the two guards before them. The lady was leaning back on a wooden chair, reading a book while the man just sat and watched her.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Officer Jenny peered over some trees and spotted the base,
“Hey, look, ‘dere’s sometin’ just a coupl’a meters away.” She hid her motorcycle and Max and Jane followed her to the doors that were still open a crack. Cautiously, they went in and found the streets deserted- after all, it was just about dinner/ bedtime. They found their way through the city to a small grayish building; the jail.
Suspiciously, Jane led Max and Jane in and found inside:
Two guards, a purple haired woman and a blonde haired man, looking about in their early thirties
May, Drew, Sheathie, Brock, and Tracey all in a huge metal cage.

“Hi guys!” Max and Jane called as they ran up to the bars.

Missute and Jenny pulled their guns at the same time,
“Who are you and what do you want?” Missute asked Jane.

“Why ya got my niece’s friends locked up?”

“Because they’re intruders.” Rollfcof answered from leaning against the wall, also drawing a hand weapon,
“As are you.”

Meanwhile, Max and Janie were talking to their friends,
“So,” Max asked Sheathie,
“I haven’t seen you before! Who are you?”

“Sheath Vertipalgia.” She said. Immediately, Missute fell back in her chair and Rollfcof stood straight up, as white as plaster.
“What did you say?!” he asked as he helped his wife up.

Sheathie looked up innocently at him,
“My name is Sheath Vertipalgia.” Missute scrambled to get the keys and ran to the cage, immediately unlocking it and sweeping Sheath up into her arms, into a hug. She picked her up and Rollfcof followed her holding them both in his arms.

“I’m confused…” Seemed to be everyone’s reply.

Missute turned to them, Sheath in her arms, still a bit confused
“Sheathie’s our daughter! She and her brother Keuyu! Right after she disappeared, Mistress Yolanda appeared to us telling us that in exchange for our service she would help us be re-united… but you’ve been here this whole time!” She hugged her daughter tight,
“Do you remember me at all, sweetie?” She asked Sheath. Sheath looked at her closely,
“You had shorter hair,” She said, throwing her arms around her mother.

“We… we were never allowed to tell my poor son Keuyu what happened…” Rollfcof said sadly,
“I hope he’s alright…”

“He’s fine!” Jane replied.

“What?”

“We know him! He came looking for Miss Misty and Mr. Ash and we came looking for him!”

“Misty Waters!?” Missute asked, shocked.

“Yeah!”

Missute smiled sadly,
“That’s how this whole mess started. I was very close to Mrs. Waters, Misty’s mother. One night, I was coming over to ask for a cup of sugar, when I saw this huge blue Ninetails going into the kitchen… A few seconds later, I saw it re-emerge, holding Mrs. Waters in it’s tail. I fled, fearing for my life. The next day I found out that she had been drowned. The police claimed it was accidental, they called me crazy. After all, who would believe my story about a huge, nine foot tall blue Ninetails? After that, Yolanda right off commanded the death of Misty’s father, Mr. Waters. Then… Sheathie disappeared. It was too much for me to handle so when the blue Ninetails-- Master Yolanda-- appeared to me again, I was willing-- or rather, I was so afraid that I was willing to do whatever she said.”

“I’ve had about enough a ‘dis!” Officer Jenny said, holding the gun back up towards Rollfcof,
“wha’ is ’dis place, anyhoo? I demand ta hear more, afteh all, I’m Officer Jenny!”

“You have absolutely no authority here, Miss Jenny,” Missute pointed out,
“This is an individually ruled town, plus, it’s Rocket territory.”
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
“Do you think it’s safe to go in now?” Keuyu asked Keshi.

“It’s never safe to travel inside the walls of the base.” Keu laughed,
“I bet not. But it’s okay, we’ll be fine-- I’m sure of it!” He said confidently.

“But…” Keu sat down next to Keshi and gently laid his arm around her,
“Yes?”

“But I’m their princess… I’m sure that already they have a warrant for my arrest out…”

“Why?”

“I am not ever permitted to exit the castle… but now that Yolanda is at war… I have finally regained control of my body and I was therefore able to escape…” She sniffed and began to cry. Keu had no idea about some of the things she talked about, but he felt terrible that she was weeping,
“There, there…” He whispered as he protectively wrapped his arms around her.

“I-I’ll never... Never be able to go back there... I-it’s m-my only h-home! W-where w-will I go?” She broke out sobbing and clung to Keu as she continued crying.

“Shhh… it’s okay… there, there… I‘ll protect you…”
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
“PIPIKACHU!!!!” Ash sat up as Pikachu jumped onto his bed. Sliat had brought him back shortly after they returned from the Onsen.

“Sup, buddy?” He asked as he scratched his pal behind the large, bunny-like ears. He glanced over at Misty, who was still sitting on her bed and brushing her hair, wiping her eyes from time to time.

All Ash wanted to do was scoop her up in his arms and hold her in his arms. He got a kind of sad-dazed / love-sick-moron look in his eyes and Pikachu waved his hand in front of Ash’s face. Ash quickly snapped out of it,
“Misty? Are you okay?” He asked.

Maybe this is something you didn’t know. Remember how Ash seemed to be laughing as Misty began to tell him about how scared she was? Well… he wasn’t laughing, he was crying.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Missute and Rollfcof quickly let all the Poke-peeps out of the cage,
“You’ll have to go back in there after our shift’s over, or else, the guards will get suspicious. But, I think we can help. Rollfcof and I know a bunch of people who, like us, are desperately waiting for the time when people will come and free us from our burdens. People who, like us, were tricked into working for Yolanda, like Mr. Farjahorn and Ms. Riga. Also a very strong master, Mr. Ketchum.”

“Mr. Ketchum?” They asked in unison. They all knew well that that was Ash’s last name.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Keu sighed as he stared into the beautiful nigh sky. Keshi had fallen asleep crying in his arms and he had gently laid her under his jacket up, her face against his chest. He couldn’t fall asleep, though, he just simply had to find his friends.

“Keu…” Keshi mumbled, half asleep.

“Yeah?” He asked,

“You smell nice…” She said. Keu blushed as he gently laid his hand on her head and gently rubbed it,
“And you’re really… adorable.” He said as he leaned back up against the tree
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Misty had fallen asleep and Ash laid in his bed,
*How selfish am I!? How can I let the girl I adore more than anything marry a guy that she doesn’t love just to perhaps keep me alive!? I’m such a jerk, there’s no way she could ever like me.* Ash sat up and walked over to her bed, kneeling down next to it,
“Misty…” Ash said, stroking Misty’s hair. Her eye-lids fluttered, but didn’t awaken,
“If things were different, if I wasn’t such an idiot and would instead show you my feelings… geeze, I’m such a jerk, I can’t even control the way I act around you. Man do I wish I could be princely and stuff... But what I most desire... Is that I could tell you that…” He paused

“ That I love you.” He could feel his face grow hot at those words,
“There… I said it… Even if you are only protecting me… I don’t want you to marry him... I wish... I wish… I could ask you to marry ME… I love you... I love you!” He whispered as he began to weep,
“In all the time we were apart, I missed you so much... And now… finally after we’re reunited... You’ll be taken away from me forever… I love you…” Ash whispered as he brushed away her bangs and touched her lips with his own in a... A…

A gentle kiss. He wanted that moment to last forever. As he sat up few of his teardrops dripped down and fell onto Misty’s face, but Ash was too shy to touch her angelic face with his hands, afraid she could disappear or shatter. Quietly, Ash stood up, taking one last lingering look at Misty’s face before he headed back to his side of the room.

Pikachu grinned from a side table as he checked his camera. Yep. He had caught the whole ‘episode’ on tape.

“Ash…” Ash sat up in his bed just moments after he had left Misty’s side. Then he realized that she was only probably talking in her sleep,
“I love... I don’t want to… marry him... Ash… please… help me…” Ash stomach sank,
“Misty?” Of course there was no reply,
“I… I love you.”

He rolled over and didn’t notice that on the other side of the room, a single tear rolled down Misty’s not-so-sleeping face.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Yay! That chappie was exactly 4,000 words! Did you like it!? And I know what you’re thinking:
“ASH JUST-- MISTY IS AWAKE??? AHHHHH! HE JUST SAID HE LOVED HER!!!” and no, the world isn’t coming to an end. Hope you liked it!

By the way, the language I used isn’t real, so don’t bother looking it up

Well, I finally got around to reading it. I feel so bad, I know you asked me to a long time ago, but I never did. I'm sooo sorry! But I'm doing it now, so hey.

Well, you have a really interesting plot here, what with the nine-tails and all. I hope you still plan to explain how Misty got all of her nine-tails though. As for the character relationships, they're not very um, realistic. I mean, it's just suddenly all mushy between Ash and Misty and Drew and May. But I'm sure that you knew that as you were writing. I enjoy some mush, but some of the crying and hugging and all got a little repetitive. I like Max and Jane together, love her character by the way, and Keu and Keshi. I like both her and Matuke. One of the best things in this fics is all your little notes. Not really proper writing, but what the heck, it really made me laugh. I never knew there were so many ways to describe the color red, lol. Overall, good suspense, and I enjoyed it. I hope you write more soon. Oh, and put me on your PM list so I don't get behind, please.

Thank you all very much for the reviews!!!


Finally. Rawr. Ash admits his love.
That's what everybody's been telling me XD Too bad she wasn't awake to hear it... or was she? *heart-swell*


Well, I finally got around to reading it. I feel so bad, I know you asked me to a long time ago, but I never did. I'm sooo sorry! But I'm doing it now, so hey.

That's okay, I'm just glad that you came!!!!


Well, you have a really interesting plot here, what with the nine-tails and all. I hope you still plan to explain how Misty got all of her nine-tails though.

Yes, I'm planning to be very annoying by:
Chapter preview:
Chapter 19:
It's wedding day and Misty's thinking about all of her expierences... all of the times she and Ash have been through together... the good... the bad... and now... she be forced to leave his side forevor more.
She's also thinking about some other special things in her life-- mainly, her Pokemon


As for the character relationships, they're not very um, realistic. I mean, it's just suddenly all mushy between Ash and Misty and Drew and May. But I'm sure that you knew that as you were writing. I enjoy some mush, but some of the crying and hugging and all got a little repetitive.

yeah, I absolutely LOVE making things cheezy! Didja gag? KIDDIN!!!
Burried feelings are bound to arise and unfold, no?


I like Max and Jane together, love her character by the way, and Keu and Keshi. I like both her and Matuke.

Thank you very much!!They are pretty kawaii, aren't they? I'm so glad you like my OC's!!!! But what about Sheathie???


One of the best things in this fics is all your little notes. Not really proper writing, but what the heck, it really made me laugh. I never knew there were so many ways to describe the color red, lol.

YAYYYYYY! You like my notes! Well, basicly, when I was writing, it was in my free time ("no, duh, great way to point out the obvious, retatrd MP" <-inner self) so sometimes it was at like one in the morning or like... just random moments :D Either that or I'm amazingly funny *Bloated head pops* (JK, I'm not that funny!!!!)

Oh dear, I need to find very many more colour pallets


Overall, good suspense, and I enjoyed it. I hope you write more soon. Oh, and put me on your PM list so I don't get behind, please.

Okeydokey artichokie!!!!! I'll keep typin' away and I'll b sure 2 update soon ("meybeh....") 0_o like by the end of this millenium (wow, that REALLY must be spelled wrong. It's pretty late at night and I'm like deprived of sleep. Plus being a ditzy spazatic clutz doesn't help either.

Back to the point-- wait... what was my point?? oh! I'll get it out soon and b sure to let you know when it comes out!

EDIT: By the way, now, for some reason, I keep referring to my fic as COTN (Cape of the Ninetails) yeah, it should be TCOTN, but I think COTN is better, and sometimes I just say to like my friends (esp. Irena Mystica) "Have you read the new chapter of "cotton" yet?" I'm just used to saying "Cotton" for COTN. Really wierd little blah-blah note, but hey, I'm random!

^_^;; I'm confused too...what you meant is...

May and Drew are 2/4 of a couple, that means half 1/2, but it's 2/4, but then again 1/2...I'm getting confused myself...-_-;;

I can't wait for the next chapter! Especially because of May and Drew! ^_^ Wait, I'm a Pokeshipper, aren't I? Well, can't wait to see who bashes the wedding or Misty cancels the wedding or-

Nevermind, got carried away there...

___________________________
Chapter 19

*Why? Why is it I? Why am I the one who has to marry Matuke? * Misty woke up but felt numb; as it she was being crushed by a snorlax and had no energy left.

Silent tears ran down her face as she had her back to the awakening Ash.

“Misty? Are you awake?” Misty made no reply and Ash slowly crept up to her bed from behind. Misty braced for a rude awakening, but instead, she felt a soft, tan hand in her hair. She dared not breathe or even open one eye to look at him.

Hit me, hate me, cast me away. But please, please I beg with all my heart…

Don’t love me.

This ran through her head over and over. She could stand marrying Matuke. She could maybe someday get over it. She could move on from where her life once was. She would have to tell herself that.

But if Ash loved her, if he truly did…
She rather die than be apart from him. Her body began to shake as she tried to withstand her tears. Ash’s hand left her hair, as he was afraid he was the cause of her rapid shaking. He walked away, over to the chestnut wardrobe, took out his clothes for the day, black of course, and walked away.

Once he was out of the room, Misty submitted to her shaking, racking back and forth with violent sobs and she whispered over and over,
“I love him… I love him… I love him!” Of course she didn’t remember that Ash had left Pikachu in the room, and of course, Ash’s Pika-pal was recording the whole thing

“Miss Misty Ma’am, Ma’am!” Misty sat up and found Tails and Sliat standing at the foot of her bed

“Are you alright, Ma’am, Ma’am?” Misty nodded as she wiped away her tears and laughed nervously,
“Just pre-wedding jitters, I guess…”

“Oh,” Sliat said as she walked over to the dresser and began fiddling with something.
“You should consider it an honor, honor to be marrying the prince, prince.”

“Oh? Why is that?” Misty asked. Sliat thought,

“Well, on the outside, outside, Master is cruel, cruel. But inside, inside, is the little boy I raised with my own two hands, hands.”

“You were his maid?” Misty asked.

“I am Master Matuke-kun sister, sister.” Sliat whispered in a hushed tone.

“How come he never told me?” Misty asked, curiously.

“Because he had no idea, idea.” Sliat said,
“Mistress Yolanda kidnapped Matuke and I when he was just a baby- I’m six years older than him. She found great promise in him and knew that when he grew older he would make a fine ruler, ruler... Or at least a ruler that would obey her every command, command.”

“What about your twin, Teef? And I thought Princess Keshi was his sister.”

“Teef followed Yolanda, Yolanda. When the Mistress found her, she wouldn’t allow her to return to Mother and Father, Father. And Mistress Keshi… I’m not allowed to speak of her, her.”
“Oh come on!” Misty pleaded. Sliat sighed,
“No.”

“I’ll ask Matuke-kun! Then you’ll have to tell him everything you just told me!” A look of horror spread across Sliat’s face,
“Fine! Mistress Keshi was the infant firstborn of a young couple. Yolanda did strike, strike while the mother was out playing with her second born son, a baby, and the father with his daughter. I heard they were in the woods when Yolanda snatched up Keshi. The father perused them valiantly and finally Yolanda agreed to let him in the city and watch his daughter grow up on one condition: that he remain in the city under Yolanda’s rule; to never reveal himself as Keshi’s father, and to never tell anyone that he’s a Pokemon Master. Also, he could never go back to his wife and baby son ever again.”

“A Pokemon Master?” Sliat nodded.

“Then what’s really Keshi’s last name?” Misty asked.

“… Ketchum.”
~~~~~~~~~~
“Like, hello?” Daisy said as she answered the videophone.

“Good morning. I am presuming this is a sister of Misty Waters. Is that true?”

“Yes…” Daisy said slowly.

“Good. You and her other two sisters are invited to her wedding.” That took a moment to register in the blonde’s mind.

“WHAT!? IS THIS A PRANK!?”

“No, ma’am. Misty Waters and Prince Matuke Haetaka are to be wed this afternoon. We have already purchased jet tickets for you to get here quickly.”

“Where exactly is here?” Daisy asked.

“Ma’am, that is none of your concern. A royal guard the whole way will escort you, so you have no need to worry. He should be at your residence soon.” Almost simultaneously, the doorbell rang and Lily ran to get it.

“Good. It sounds like he’s on time.” The guard continued on the phone.

“Like when exactly did my baby sister get engaged to the ‘Matkey’ guy anyway? WHO is he, anyway?”

“Ma’am, his name is Matuke. It was a royal engagement, so I do not know the details, Ma’am. He is the prince of our village. You are to attend the wedding, by your sister’s request.”
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Misty walked down the hall, being pulled along by Sliat, trying to comprehend what Sliat had said,
*Keshi Ketchum… Ash’s sister… and his father… are here… and Giovanni has pretended all this time to be their father… and Yolanda’s pretended to be their mother… *

She could faintly feel a bunch of ladies turning her around and helping her into tight shoes, billowing undergarments, and such. Then she was told to lift her arms and her wedding dress was pulled over her head. She caught only parts of what the women were saying.

“… Almost time!”

“What colour blush…?”

“… think about this?”

“Well…”

“Her hair should be more down and…”
Soon Misty was pulled in front of a long mirror. She looked even more gorgeous than she had when she had tried on her dress. The beautiful fabric flowed down gently and her face looked calm and beautiful.

This was how her best friend found her.
“Whoa…” he said as he walked in, staring at Misty. As soon as Ash stepped into her sight, tears pricked at her eyes; good think she was wearing her veil.

“H-hi Ash.” Ash grinned as he scratched the back of his head,
“You sure look pretty.”

*DID I JUST SAY THAT OUT LOUD?!?!?!?!?!*

*What did he just say? Did he just compliment me? *

“Heheheh… anyway…” Great going, dork boy. You really are a geek.

“Would you... Help me down… I can’t bend down…” Ash gently took her hand and helped her down from the pedestal.

“So… are you excited or something?” He asked, looking pretty depressed.

“…Or something.” Misty said as she leaned her forehead against his chest,
“You’ll be there, right?”

“… I don’t know. I’ll have to ask Matuke.”
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
“We should first go to Mr. Ketchum’s hut.” Missute said. She and her husband had strategically tied all of their “prisoners” together and led them down the road, inconspicuous to all the people who trusted them with their lives.

They traveled down to the edge of the inside woods where there seemed to be no movement by humans, no life there at all. There was only one rustic little dirt-brick and wood house. The roof, made of straw, was falling apart and the door hung on one hinge. There was only one window with bars on it-- they had no idea why. Besides, if he was afraid buglers would break in, why leave his door swaying freely in the wind?

They entered, one by one and the sight amazed them. A man practically hang from two chains attacked to opposite sides of the circular dirt wall. He was hanging loosely and his knees barely touched the ground. His head was hanging down and his messy black hair blew around loosely in the wind.

“Mr. Ketchum.” his head jerked upward, a pleadingly tired look in his eyes, circled by red. It looked as if he hadn’t shaved, bathed or eaten in months.

“It’s just me, Missute and Rollfcof.” Missute said as she kneeled down and pulled some bread out of her pocket. She fed it to him and afterwards he said gruffly in a hoarse voice,

“Thank you... I thought you two would… never come again… I was beginning to lose hope.”

May and the others could see the resemblance between he and Ash. The chocolate brown eyes, the thin figure. He wasn’t at all ugly, just un-kept.

“We’ve come to free you.” Rollfcof whispered as he bent down and unfastened the chains holding him up. His body immediately crumpled to the floor. Missute ran to his side and helped him up,
“You okay?”

“Yeah.” He grunted shifting his weight on Rollfcof, who had slung Mr. Ketchum’s arm onto his shoulder.
“Who are they?” He asked, motioning to the tied up group with his chin.

“They’re friends of your son.”

“My little Ash has grown up… is he a Pokemon master yet?” he asked Brock.

“Not yet, but he’s sure on his way.”

“Good. Don’t want him beating his old man.”
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
“Ash,” Matuke said as he passed Ash in the hallway, stopping hi.

“Oh, Matuke. I was wondering… I could come to the wedding?” Ash asked in a monotone voice.

“…No.”

“WHY?” Ash practically screamed, enraged.

“I don’t want any interference. I will put you in the picture room and you can watch it on a color picture box.”

Of course, Matuke had no idea what a TV was, but he had caught a glimpse of one and had commanded Sliat to tell him about it.
Matuke snapped and instantaneously, guards ran to his sides,
“Take Ash to a picture chamber where he may watch my wedding.” The guards grabbed Ash and dragged him off.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Ash found himself in a gray room. They had sat him down on a circular gray stool and had chained his arms to well... Chains (no, duh) and had connected them to the walls. Before him was a large projector screen and from behind him shone a light that showed the sanctuary at that current time; maids decorating, but basically it was empty. Ash lightly pulled on the chains and felt searing pain shoot up his arms. Of course, they had to be electric.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Daisy, Lily and Violet had packed in a hurry, only enough for about two days, and accompanied by their “royal guard” hurried off to the airport.

They had boarded their jet without problem, as had they arrived. Now they were waiting for their limo. Yes, the royal guard at the “palace” had arranged them a limousine.

Soon they saw a sleek black car drive down the walk and they got in it.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
*It’s all over… It’s all over! All my dreams… they’re all down the drain.. All my hard work… I’ve worked all my life…

I’ve worked all my life towards a goal that is now impossible to reach.

I remember the first day… when my quest began.

It was just last year… right after Togepi… Tegetic had left in the Mirage Kingdom… I was just out... when I had found him…

Ash…

Ash, not the boy-wonder, but the Ninetails. He and Misty. No, not me, the Ninetails, Misty.

I was in awe… they were playing together in the water, looking so very majestic. At first, I had just silently stood there, behind a grove of trees. They looked so happy, the black Ninetails and the orange.

A way that perhaps Ash and I would never be.

Then, they approached me and next to each of them a vision stood. One in almost the image of me, and one of a man that looked very much like Ash.

“Greetings.” The Ash look-alike said,
“I am Ashro, and this is my wife, Mysteria.” I had gaped on,

“Where are you-- who are…”

“We lived long ago,” The “Mysteria” figure said as she embraced the “Ashro” fellow,
“But now our Ninetails are the only ones that exist.” The orange Ninetails had made a kind of cooing sound.

Now that I think about it, in these royal clothes, I look very similar to Mysteria. That’s when Ash and Misty, the Ninetails, had nudged me.

Mysteria had said something like,
“Ashro… It looks as we, or rather they have chosen their new masters.” She smiled kind of sadly,
“They want you to capture them, don’t you see?” She asked. I actually had two Poke balls with me and I captured them without a struggle.

Then the rest had come. It was strange, really. One by one they came to me. This one had been in the royal wars and his master had been killed, another’s master had gone into insanity and committed suicide.

All strange coincidences that brought them to me. Me. I had no idea why. I was just a water trainer, after
All. And Ninetails tend to be just fire. FIRE! But not mine.

I had been able to train them to use water attacks, and as I trained with them I learned more about them and I had grown to love them. Each and every one of them.

It seems now, that they were sent to me for a purpose. But that’s crazy.

It’s just crazy.

Every day, though, they kept telling me to re-unite with Ash, although I have no idea how they know him.

Am I crazy?*
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Matuke walked into Misty’s preparation room with his hands over his eyes (it’s custom to never see the bride before the wedding),
“My dear,” he said,
“How is everything?”

Misty stood up,
“Can my friends come to my wedding?” she asked right away,

“My dear, isn’t this a bit sudden?”

“You told me that my sisters would be coming, but haven’t told me about my friends May, Brock, Tracey, Keuyu, Drew, Max or Janie.”

“I’ve tried to reach your friend Keuyu, but he isn’t at home. I shall have my messengers keep trying, but in the meantime, your sisters are here!” He walked out of the room, granted he almost ran into the wall because his eyes were covered, but whatever. After he had left, her sisters ran in,

“Like, little sis, I thought Ashy was your boyfriend! When didja meet this Matuke guy!?”

“Like, yeah! He’s looks like a keeper, alright! Does he have a twin or anything!? I can settle for an older brother!”

“I can’t wait! But I never thought, like, our baby sister would, like, get married before us!”

“Like, that’s just cuz you can’t settle on one guy, Daisy!”

“Oh shut up, Vi!”

“Now like calm down you two…”

“Like stay out of this Lil’”

Misty was still caught up in the fact that her sisters were there. Finally, her three sisters stopped arguing and turned their attention to their sis.

“You look, like, so adorable! Gorgeous! I can like, even now call you the fourth beautiful sister!”

“Yeah, oh my gosh, you, like, look just like mom did, like when she was getting married to, like your dad!”

“I know! Like look at her hair! Isn’t that pretty!? I like totally need her hair stylist to, like, do my hair!”

“You’re always thinking about yourself, Daisy, it’s our sister’s wedding!”

“Don’t, like, critique me, Vi!”

“Like, quit fighting!”
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
“I think it would be best if we split up here. It’s too risky for us all to get caught.” Missute said.

“One or two of us should go and talk to Misty while the others go and try to crash the wedding.”

“Agreed.” Then they randomly picked Max and Janie to go and find Misty. After all, it was the safest job, and best for small peeps who could sneak around
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Meanwhile, after Matuke exited, he sighed and ran his hands through his hair,
“The prisoners are her friends, eh?” He asked out loud to nobody in particular as he started off to locate Misty’s friends.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
“Drew, I’m tiiiired!” May whispered as she and the ‘gang’ snuck through the silent town in mid-morning. Drew sighed fondly as he knelt down and pointed to his back,
“Come on, cutie, get on.” He said while grinning.

May giggled,
“Thanks! You’re cute yourself!” She said as she pecked him on the cheek and hopped onto his back, snuggling her face into his strangely coloured hair and hugging him around his neck.

“Once you two stop flirting, wouldja mind? WE’RE SUPPOSED TO BE SNEAKING!” Tracey hissed.

“Woah” they all said in unison 0_o Tracey hissing. Kinda scary. Back away slowly…

Sheath giggled, shattering the awkward (to say the very least) silence,

“May-May-Ni, are you in love with Mr. Drew?” 0_o

Oh my gosh, I wish I had a camera. Drew turned so red that… like… well... hmmn… how to describe it… have you ever gotten like a evil bright red detention slip? (not that I’d know, my friend got one though) it’s like that colour!

Or that colour could be compared to like orange soda that’s sat around for a couple years (not that I’d know, also, just... Never mind.)

Sweatdrop

Meanwhile, May wore a face that basically said- “WAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! Am I really that obvious?” More like oblivious.

Drew could clearly see May was practically spazzing out in her brain, so he decided to take away a little of her embarrassment,
“Come on, Sheath, May and I are-”

“Yes.” Drew looked up at May; he could feel her arms shaking around his neck
“Yes what, May?” Sheath asked,

“Yes… Yes, I... I… I’m in l-love w-w-with Drew.” She hid her face behind Drew’s oversized collar and continued shakily,
“Drew… I’m c-crazy about you… you… you really are sweet… a-and I… I really do care f-for you… and I… I l-love you… I r-really do…” Her words ended in almost a whisper

“M-” Before Brock could embarrass them any further, Tracey slapped a hand over his mouth and took Sheathie gently by the hand and led them away, followed by Missute and Rollfcof.

“W…what?” Drew asked, totally stunned. May, from on his back felt tears coming on and bit her lip, trying to hold her tears back, thus, shaking,
“I… I’m sorry… p-please let m-me down…” She closed her eyes, expecting to be roughly tossed down, but instead she was set down ever so gently. May turned and began to run but soon she felt a hand in hers, pulling her back.

*No… It’s the end… I messed up and now… it’s the end… he’ll never fall in love with m-me!*

Drew pulled her to his chest,
“May… I…” he started awkwardly.

“I’m sorry,” She said, trying to pull away, only to get drawn closer. She burst into tears,
“But I love you! I love you! I love you!” Her eyes opened as she felt soft, warm lips against her own and found that--yes--Drew was-was-was kissing her!

*I- HE!!! WHAT ON- I… WHAT ON JOHTO!?” May’s mind almost imploded as to search for a cause of his reaction.

May pulled away, still having a tingling sensation on her lips; still in tears,
“Y-you didn’t have to- I mean, it’s okay- I… I… wow…” Drew took her chin in his hands, bent down, narrowed his eyes, and set his forehead against hers, locking gazes with her teary eyes,

“I…I’m not acting. May, I… it might not seem like it… but… I… I’m crazy a-about you too.” By this time his face was as red as a neon sign, you know, like at the opening of a new mall. But that’s off the subject.

Then, ever so gently, Drew pulled May against his chest, setting his chin on the top of her head and stroking her fuzzy brunette hair,

“I love you and only you, my dear May.”
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
“Where do you think May-May-ni and Drew are?” Sheathie asked from Tracey’s shoulders. Up in the front of the line, Brock was telling Mr. Ketchum (who was being held up by Missute and Rollfcof) about all the progress Ash had made.

“Don’t know. But we should be going in the correct direction; toward that big building and all,” He said pointing towards the huge castle-type mansion that law beyond some more trees and a few huts.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
“So, Mr. Max, how do we get inside?” Janie asked.

“No idea.” Max said as he and Janie clung to the wall.

Janie looked around, up and down the walls and around the castle-grounds and then something caught her eye,
“Hey, Max, look up there!” She whispered as she pointed up at something metal in the wall. Max followed her gesture and found the object of her point; an air duct vent; well, a cover for one. It was located only a few feet above their heads and was hanging loosely on a cracked brick; not even a nail held it.

“I get it! Hurry and climb up on my shoulders! Then, once you’re In, you can pull me in too!”

Janie jumped on his back and pulled off the metal cover, revealing a big, square, dark hole in the wall. She climbed in and then offered him a hand.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
“Mommy, Mommy, a strange girl and boy are making out in front!” May pulled away from Drew, wide-eyed, turning towards the little child and his mother, hoping; praying that they were one in favour of the revolution, but, eh, sometimes, she just got to be wrong.

“INTRUDERS!”

“Aww jeeze, not again!” Drew grabbed May’s hand and together they fled through the streets of the Rocket town. Slowly, the cries grew louder until the crowd was almost on top of them, until they passed through two huge stone gates. As soon as that happened, the cries completely vanished and May and Drew were left standing at the foot of a humongous building.

“Who go there!?” A huge guard called from behind them. Almost immediately, four or five more guards appeared. May sunk to her knees while Drew stood, contemplating and analyzing the situation. He closed his eyes in deep thought for a moment and then opened them.

Drew faced the guards and held out his wrists,
“We are here for the… um... We are here to see our friend Misty…” He said hopefully

“Oh,” The guard said, to both May and Drew’s relief,
“We’ve been told about you. We’ve also been told, for security reasons, to apprehend you and hold you captive during the marriage ceremony.”
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Ash sat in the large white room, head bowed,
“I… I have no idea what to do…” He muttered to himself,

“Think… think…” But after a long, long time, he still could think of nothing.

“I’ll never… never be able to tell her I love her…” A tear ran silently down his face.

Ash growled and pulled on the chains, and received a huge zap that surged throughout his whole body, even more painful than Pikachu’s thunder shock.

“YAHHHHHH!” Ash cried in pain. He glanced at his wrists and ankles and realized that he was developing cuts and welts along the edge of the cuffs.

“Pi pikachu” Pikachu said from a tiny cage that some guards had previously stuffed him in on the other side of the room.

“It over… it’s just over…” Ash’s eyes had grown wide as he began to think about all the times he could have told Misty his true feelings.

*Why? EVERY STINKIN’ DAY WAS YET ANOTHER CHANCE! Every day! Any one of those days, I could have said it… and if I had… we wouldn’t be here… maybe we’d be somewhere else… she wouldn’t be forced to marry Matuke… It is my fault… I’m such an idiot… but it’s just over…”
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Keshi and Keu stood at the gate, staring up at the huge gates,
“We’re near a route that would greatly lessen our time... What did you call it before, Keu?” Keu looped an arm around her waist,

“Shortcut, sweetheart, shortcut.” At his words, although only meant to joke, made Keshi turn light pink, like a lemonade icy-pop.

“I… Yes… well… it’s right inside the walls and it leads straight to the castle…” Keuyu looked around, scanning the area around him and making sure the coast was clear,
“Okay, when we get inside, we’re going to first find a blanket. Then we can put you on my back and cover you with it, you can pretend to be a sick woman or something--”

“But I am far too heavy for you to lift and carry!”

Keu drew near to her, face simply inches away from hers,
“Nonsense, my dear, as long as I am near to you, you will feel as light as a feather,” OOH! Even pinker, like cotton-candy that’s been super-blown, maybe by a hair dryer. 0_o
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
“From the information we’ve gathered,” Rollfcof said,
“I believe that Master Matuke and Mistress Misty’s wedding is in the main auditorium as soon as the sun sets. The Ketchum Jr. you speak of must have a plan and have things handled by inside…” (yeah right.)

Brock snickered, but after receiving a glare from the others shrugged nervously,
“Uh… sorry… I didn’t think you were actually serious. Carry on.”

“Like I was saying, we should just act as backup to him. If he really loves the maiden as much as you say, he should be able to handle the situation by himself.”

Another snicker from Brock earned him a bonk on the head by Tracey.

“Anyway,” Missute took over the stressed conversation for her husband,
“Our best chance is to attend the wedding. I doubt that anyone knows about our new alliance-- yet. Soon, though, someone will figure it out… hopefully, not before nightfall. We can take you into the wedding, because Misty has requested your presence there, but you cannot speak to us once we get into the base. When we strike, we will strike hard.”
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Misty sat on her balcony, deep in thought,
*My dear Pokemon, wherever you are, I wish you happiness… And you... Ash… I wish you love…*
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

There you go! Don’t cry! *Sweatdrop*

No, I’m not going to stop at twenty chappies… or else I’d have to make chappie 20 humongous! I’m currently making chapter 20, it’s really good so far, and I hope to post it very soon!

Do I have to nervous? Have you already predicted the end? Maybe you haven’t! Maybe, I may just twist it up! But chill out, I’m still a major:

i should research that... you know... if you can actually die from laughter... like bust your spleen or something...

but seriously, I'm trying to work on chappie 20, but first I'd like to know, what shipping does everyone believe is the most Kawaii?
Contest-HAHAHAHAHA!-Poke-HAHAHAHAHAHA! -dies of laughter after reading your post-
-randomly puts on a pair of glasses like Edna in The Incredibles-

Contestshipping and Pokeshipping. -shifts glasses-

But if I had to choose...

IF I HAD TO CHOOSE! -slams a hand down onto the table, which caused the books on it to drop on the floor-

I'll choose...-drum roll-

Contestshipping!

-takes away glasses-

Hmmmnn... nice choice, Miss Edna

originally, I had no clue as to the fact that this fic would have the potential of being a Contestshipping AND a Pokeshipping fic!

Wow, looking back at the first chapter... I now realize...

I stunk.

*throws glasses in furnace along with my sanity and dignaty*

~ Mysteria Pearl ~

so that's one vote Contestshipping, huh? Interesting *turns into a scary lab partner*

"Yes master... I will create more contestshippyness for master *creepy laugh*"

Um, Miss Edna, you don't need to advertise The Incredibles, or in this case, Pokemon.

Haruka and Shuu seemed a bit OOC in the whole flirting part but the rest was fine. ^^;

Then, ever so gently, Drew pulled May against his chest, setting his chin on the top of her head and stroking her fuzzy brunette hair,

“I love you and only you, my dear May.”
^That was so kawaii. I squealed so much when that happened. xD

Good luck on chapter 20. <3

Wow. With the new chapter, I had to comment.

You've really improved since you started writing this story, did you know that? I'm sure you did, but I don't think I had any idea myself until this chapter--it was incredible, frankly.

The original plot this story focused on finally seems to be building up towards its climax. Or at least we've gotten more information. The monologue Misty performed when the Ninetails information was revealed reminded me a lot of manga. Fruits Basket, especially. There's quite often a personal reflection or private explanation at the end of an important chapter that reveals a bit about the character that's monologuing--this one gave some helpful background story.

The twists of these OCs, who turned out to not just be random OCs (thank godsh!) was really surprising, and brought those characters to the forefront for me, as compared to their earlier scenes when I often ignored them. --' I'm glad you've made their importance all the more obvious.

The slapstick-styled humor, the crazy spun-sugar fluff, and your random notes every so often lended the touch that made sure I knew it was you writing. Which is reassuring...and made me smile. The randomness keeps everything stable, strangely enough.

All in all, nice job this chapter. I'll be waiting for your next one.

Yay! Finally they are noticed! *sniff* I know that usually when people read a fanfic with alot of OC's, they get bored and skip to the people who they believe are important! That's why I'm trying to make them significant to the main Poke peep's lives!

I guess whackiness touches people! Like I always say (or rather, never say but claim to) : wait... what was it? Oh! Humour is like glue, it holds things together and keeps the plot running!


All in all, nice job this chapter. I'll be waiting for your next one.

I'll be trying my hardest to finish chapter 20 very soon! (Although that isn't working I'm not too worried. I can't get to sleep anyhow, what is it called? Insane? No...Infurriated? no... Ah! Insomnic (or something)

So, many things came out in this chapter. I was surprised to learn that Keshi is really Ash's sister, and that his father was there too. Also, the story about the Ninetails was really interesting. I'm interested to know more about their two former masters and how their story relates to this one. Glad to see May and Drew hook up finally. Poor Ash and Misty . . . And I love the stuff going on with Keshi and Keu. The only thing I would suggest is that you not use notes about detention slips and stuff. Funny though it may be, if you're not doing so consistently, you shouldn't address the audience. I may have said something to the contrary earlier, but whatever. That would be the more proper way. Also, I don't know if I asked you this, I've asked so many people, but would you mind reading my fic "Mare Tempestatum" if you ever get the chance? I feel kinda bad asking since I took so long to read this one, but it's been slow on reviews overall. Anyway, it was really good, and I look forward to the next chapter!

Nice try, you got both shippings in. I say that's a Double Kill. Though the Contestshipping moments got owned by your spacing. >_< I dunno why.

Meh. Plot intricaties. I like that part about Ash's dad. And when he said, "Good. Don't want the kid to catch up with the old man." IT ACTUALLY MADE ME SMILE. ANd I'm kinda drained right now, so smiling isn't that easy.

I suppose it's a bit hypocritical, asking for another chapter so soon...considering my own writing. -- I should work on that, I really should...ah, well.

I forgot to write about the Keushi (my smush-name for the ship). It's cute, really...how easily embarrassed and how much of a flirt they are, and how well it works together. Certainly isn't found too often in Pokémon; it's a very nice change of pace, romance-wise.

Anyhoo, since you've been so persuasive, here it is!

I don't think it's as good as chapter 19 was or is as good as Chapter 21 will be, but it's okay... I suppose XD

Well, finally! Here’s the highly-anticipated (I think…) chapter. There’s a little more blood than normal in this chapter, but I had to drama-tize it (is that even a word? I really don’t think so)

No, I do not own Pokemon the show, the game, (etc), but I do own all my OC’s, such as:
Keuyu Vertipalgia
Sheathie Vertipalgia
Missute Vertipalgia
Rollfcof Vertipalgia
Keshi Haetaka
Matuke Haetaka
Sliat and Tails
Feet and Teef
The Mysterious Yolanda
My version of Mr. Ketchum
Janie
And any of the others

so don’t even TRY to steal one. You may claim one, but not steal one!

As usual, pg - pg13. No swearing… but a little bleeping… er... ‘Mechanical difficulties’… heh... Anyhoo… I hope you enjoy!

Chapter 20

“Where are we anyway, Maxie- oof!” Janie asked in the dark as she collided with Max in the air duct.

(I never thought dust could collect so thickly in the air that if you used a chainsaw, you still couldn’t cut through it. 0_o)

“Owww…” Max mumbled as he tenderly rubbing his head. They were over a small opening and were trying to figure out where they were. All they could see was straight down at a blue and gold marble floor and the end of a blue velvet chez lounge and two feet.

Then the feet moved and the person walked almost directly under the air vent. That’s when Max and Jane realized, by the bright red hair, that it was Misty.

“Miss Misty! Miss Misty!” Janie cried as she got on top of the vent cover. Misty looked up in shock just as the cover cracked and Max and Janie fell in on top of her.

Misty sat up and found two wide eyed, simply adorable poke-palls in her lap.

“Well that was sure random. Where the heck did you two come from?” Misty asked, stunned

“Oh,” Max said, grinning,
“We just decided to drop in unannounced.” (Geeze, Max, that’s like the lamest joke ever. Even I could do better than that!)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
“Matuke.” Matuke turned towards the mysterious voice from his balcony as a certain blue Ninetails appeared. He immediately knelled down on one knee, (no duh, smart one, what else would he kneel on, his nose?)
“Mistress Yolanda, why are you here?”

“My dear boy, I wouldn’t miss my own son’s wedding. And besides, after only rampaging a few more minor villages and cities, I will have conquered the entire world!” (self over-confidence, much?)

“Very good, mother. Thank you.”

“For what?”

“For allowing me to be wed.”

“Nonsense, child. The Water Master was a fine choice, I commend you for that. Very strategic. And now, she will be bound to you forever; one of the potentially strongest trainers this planet has ever seen. Once again, a fine choice. Also, I believe this act will render a certain trainer useless. And also render him absolutely insane.” Yolanda’s eyes began to grow red and almost instantly, Matuke’s eyes grew dull.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Keu ran down the barely-worn path with Keshi clinging to his back,
“Are you alright, my princess?” He asked, stopping briefly.

True, at that moment, Keshi was about to pass out from the glee of being so near to him, as I'm sure that any of us females would, but she still tried to force down her blush... but that obviously didn’t work. She was just about the colour that that icky cherry-flavoured cough syrup is coloured. Or maybe the colour the people turn when they have to swallow it…

Keu’s long, thin, muscled legs resumed what they were doing; dodging trees, brush and… er… stuff and at the same time sprinting at top speed. Keshi bounced along on his back as she merely tried to hold on

“Is that it, sweetie?” Keu asked, motioning with his head to a giant building only meters away from them.

“Yes!” She said, as red as a fire hydrant (unless they’re yellow. Then… Anyhoo.)
“Can you climb a wall?”

“Why?” He asked.

“Because, if I know my brother well enough-- and I hope I do-- he’ll have put Ash in the place I would have-- as the righter and the ruler of torture. It’s on the third floor, but there's only one window anywhere near it. A tree overhangs it over there.” She said as she let go of his neck with one arm and pointed at a tall elm tree with thick, sturdy branches.

“Ruler of torture? You? A sweet, pretty, adorable girl like you?” He asked as he approached the tree. Keshi turned even pinker; basically neon. 0_o

Ninja art- climbing trees no-jutsu! I’m kidding! KIDDING! Walk away slowly! *sweatdrop*

Keu jumped stealthily up the tree in one bound and landed on the windowsill. Looking in and seeing only one guard, without one thought, he broke the glass with his bare hand, shredding the outer skin of his hand and making it gush blood,

“Intruder!” The guard shouted, but before any other guards were actually alerted, Keu pulled a poke ball from his pocket,
“Go UN!” an unknown appeared, a large star shaped one at that.

“Hidden power!” He cried and the powerful pokemon released its furry on the guard who was soon unconscious

“Oh my goodness, you are simply amazing!” Keshi bubbled.

“Yeah, yeah, I’m not that great,” He said blushing the colour of this very text and returning his pokemon to his Pokeball,
“Now where’s this room?”

Keshi climbed off his back, grabbed his un-injured hand and pulled him to a large, cherry wood door.

“He’s probably in here--” Suddenly they heard a cry of absolute pain. Keshi grabbed the handle and yanked the door open, running in, followed by Keu.

What they found there horrified them.

Ash looked up at them with wild blood-shot eyes that were filled with tears.

Blood and sweat dripped down his skin and hair and the flesh around his wrists and ankles were simply torn up by the chains and cuffs. His clothes were crisp and burned anc charred to a chalky black colour.

“Oh my--! Oh my goodness!” Keshi backed up and found herself in Keu’s strong arms,
“I… I’m so sorry! I…” Ash glared up at them,

“Get away! Or I’ll kill you!” Ash screamed viciously.

“Dude, what’s wrong?” Keu asked as he kneeled down in front of his friend, releasing Keshi. Keshi backed up to the wall, terrified.

“You!” Ash snarled to the blonde boy,
“It’s all your fault! I love her more than anything and I’ll never be able to see her again! Because she was so dead set on visiting you, she’s getting married! I love her and now I’ve lost my chance!”

Ash had gone to the brink of insanity,
“I hate you! I hate him! I hate myself for ever meeting her!” Keu looked down at him,
“Man, we gotta get you out of here!” He said as he tugged at one of the chains, receiving a blast of a thunderbolt with Ash.

Smooth move, Keu dude. 0_o

“Keu!” Keshi cried as she grabbed him from behind, tearing him away from the volt-laden chains and into her embrace.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
“What on earth are you really doing here?” Misty asked Max and Jane as she pulled them onto her lap.

“We have to tell you about Keu!”

“What?” Misty asked.

“He liked you! He really liked you! He wrote all about it in his diary! That he has a big crush on you!” Misty smiled sadly and tried to sound a bit excited,

“My… what a surprise… but… it doesn’t matter… I’m getting married today.” Misty then received two big eyed looks from Max and Janie

“To who!? ASH!? He finally admitted to you he loves you and asked you to marry him?!” Janie cried excitedly. Misty turned as red as a rooster's feathers,
“No… no… I’m getting married to a prince. Prince Matuke Haetaka.”

“Prince who?!” Max asked a little too loud.

As soon as he said that, there was a loud knock on the door and two huge guards charged in, grabbing Max and Janie and dragging them to the door,

“Wait!” Misty called. The guards stopped and turned,
“Yes ma’am?”

“D-don’t you dare hurt them! They’re… invited to my wedding so please bring them there!” Misty commanded.

“As you wish, Ma’am. But you know the rules. No visitors unless they‘ve gotten permission from Master Matuke.”

As the door closed, Misty lay down on the soft pillows in full despair,
“How come this happened to me?”
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
“So… this went better than it could have.” Drew mumbled through his gag. He and May were chained to the chapel pews, next to Max and Janie,

“How do you figure that? We’re being held in a Rocket base against our will, gagged and chained to our seats, Ash and Keuyu are nowhere in sight and Misty’s getting married to a man she doesn’t love whatsoever.” Max said sarcastically. May just made a “humph” sound in agreement.

“Well… the way I figure that, we found Ash’s father and sister, we’ve actually been kinda reunited to Misty and Ash, and we’re no longer in the wilderness.” Jane said, or at least that’s what I think she said. It’s so hard to hear what they say when they’re wearing those awful gags.
“Ash’ll save her.” May grunted through the thick material.

“How do you know?” they asked

“He loves her right? Fairytales never end with the princess marrying the man she doesn’t love! Her knight in shining armour always comes to the rescue! Doesn’t he?” May asked. Leave it to May to be an optimist

“I don’t know, May… this isn’t one of your fairytales, after all. This is real, and like it or not, our friend is being forced to marry the prince.” Max said sadly.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
“Ma’am, Ma’am! It’s time for the wedding, wedding!” Sliat said, almost literally sending Misty through the roof. That would be very painful, seeing as the ceiling was solid marble and although her was thick-headed, her head wasn’t nearly as hard as need be to break the roof. Ash's head was maybe just thick enough...

“Please follow me, me,” Sliat said, taking Misty by the hand and leading her out.

“Sliat, is Ash is the auditorium?” Misty asked.

Sliat stopped and stayed silent for a moment,
“I… haven’t seen him, him. If I know my baby brother, brother, he won’t be there at all, all… but perhaps Matuke will be kind, kind this time, time.”

Misty was led through the hall feeling very empty, thoughts only echoing throughout her mind,
“Sliat… what if he doesn’t come at all?”

“I don’t know, know. All I know is you are going to be wed today, day. If Master Matuke orders it, it shall be done, done.”

*But he p-promised! He said that if I marry him, Ash won’t be harmed… and… if Ash isn’t there… I don’t… I don’t think I can do this… I’m not strong enough to even stand up to him... But it’s for the best, I suppose… Ash will be safe… but how!? I’m so scared! Ash… please... be my knight in shining armor... save me...*
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
“How the *bleep* are we going to get him there!?” Keu shouted angrily to himself.

“There’s just no way I can even get a good grip on those *bleep* high-volt chains... And there’s nothing to pull them out of he walls with.” He ran a bloody hand through his hair, staining his bright blonde hair with red.

The hand he had shredded when he broke the glass was even more severed thanks to the chains. Keshi was looking on in horror,

“Keu-kun… the wedding’s starting…”

“How do you know?” He asked, still trying to think of a way to free Ash.

“I can hear the music.” Keu started as everything grew still and he listened carefully, his ears picking up a tune,

“Oh… *bleep*… great” My, Keu has a dirty mouth... er... I mean... more michrophonial difficulties.

“Keu, if we have any hope to free Misty from Matuke, we have to go! We need to crash the wedding!”

“What if the others have already crashed it?”

“If they had, the music wouldn’t be playing!” Keu looked down at the sizzling boy.

“Go… All I care about is that Misty is happy… please…” Keu groaned and then ran out, accompanied by Keshi.

Ash stared at the floor, tears pricking at his eyes and conquering his face. He bit his lip as he shook, just thinking about what Misty was going through was worse than torture. (Speaking of that corset... those are very painful! That alone would be plently of torture to drive me crazy... oh... too late!)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
“Just bringing in the prisoners that the Mistress requested.” Missute said nervously to one of the outer guards. The huge guard glared down at her,
“Good. The wedding is starting. Go on in.” He heaved open the huge wooden door and Missute along with Rollfcof, Mr. Ketchum, Brock, Tracey, and Sheath, went inside.

After awhile of stressful meetings with various guards, soldiers and people of political importance, they finally made it to the humongous auditorium. It seemed as if very person they had ever met, along with everyone in the entire village was seated in there. Down far in the front of the stadium-seating-type room sat may, Drew, Max and Janie.

As Missute and Rollfcof led the Poke-palls through the crowd, though, two humongous guards stopped them (man they must work out! They're HUGE!!!),

“Are these more friends of the Mistress?” They asked gruffly. Missute backed up a little and Rollfcof stepped in,
“Stand down, guard. We are escorting them to their seats there is no need for your precaution.” The guard grunted,
“All friends of the Mistress will be chained to their seats wearing gaga, as orders from the prince. I am to make sure the chains and gags are applied securely so that there may be no interruption to the wedding. Am I clear?” The guard asked. Rollfcof glared at him but reluctantly handed him the rope that loosely held Mr. Ketchum, Brock, Tracey and Sheathie.

The guard roughly tugged them to the front pew and chained them all In, just as he had said. Then he returned to Missute and Rolfcoff’s side,
“Now, all Team Rocket Grunts are to report to the back with the others. As you know is our policy, anyone from our forces interferes and they will be killed swiftly. Understand?”

Missute gulped,
“Yes, we understand.” Then the man pointed to the back of the room and with one more glance at their friends, Missute and Rollfcof walked away.

“That didn’t go as well as we planned…” Rollfcof muttered to his wife and they parted and made their way through the crowd

“Indeed… now we have no way of possibly interfering with the wedding… Everyone’s tied up… and if we barge in… we’ll be killed instantaneously…”

“But there is hope.”

“What? Why? What kind? Who?”

“Patience. I heard that there was another youth traveling with Sheathie. And the Princess just escaped the grips of Yolanda this very morning.”

“Who’s the other who was traveling with them?”

“Our son, Keuyu Vertipalgia.”
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
“Oh my… I’m about to be married…” It hit Misty once again as she looked down at her bouquet, her dress, her veil.

She tried to whisper to herself comforting words, but nothing stopped her body from it’s rapid shaking. She could hear the fast music playing and could feel her heart beats overpass the beats of the preparation music.

“Ma’am, Ma’am? Are you ready, ready? The wedding’s about to start, start.” Sliat put a hand on Misty’s shoulder,

“It’s okay, kay. Soon this will all be over and the entire land will be at peace, peace.” Sliat reassured her.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Matuke straightened his crown and crown and then shoved open the large wooden doors at his end of the chapel. Everything and everybody was silenced as the music began to play and he began to walk down the aisle.

Holding his chin high, chest out, and his shoulders back, he approached the front of the auditorium, dressed almost completely in burgundy silk and velvet with gold and white trimmings, cape included. His black boots resembled leather and he held a pure gold staff in one hand (boy that must have been heavy!) and looped around his belt was a long, thin and tightly woven whip that had metal tips.

Meanwhile, Keshi and Keu ran to a balcony that overlooked the entire ceremony,
“Oh no!” Keshi whispered as she looked down on the sickening scene.

“We have to stop the wedding!” Keu whispered back to her as they turned and ran down fight after flight of stairs.

Ooh. Sweaty, tan, blonde boy. Me likey. XD
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

“What am I going to do?” Ash muttered to himself. He could clearly see all the tears and the blood collecting on the white marble tile of the floor beneath him and despair was gnawing at his heart.

Ash then noticed a blue and an orange glow forming behind him. His sat up as best he could and turned his head, only to receive another blast of fiery electricity to his body.

“It’s alright…” A female voice said. Ash was now loosely hanging by the chains, head drooped.

“So, are you just going to give up that easily? It seems you don’t love her very much, hun.” Ash’s head snapped up and found two faces peering down at him,

“What… who... who are you? I must be hallucinating… either that or dying…” Ash said as he squinted up at what very much resembled he and Misty

“Nope… well… you are dying due to the lack of blood… but you’re not hallucinating. My name is Ashro and this is my wife, Mysteria. We’re here to help you”

Mysteria kneeled down,
“Oh, poor boy! Are you alright!?” She pulled a handkerchief and wiped away some blood dripping down from Ash’s mouth. At the contact between the hazy, sparkling cloth and his skin, Ash felt kind of dizzy and at the same time… ‘fuzzy’.

(Okay, that was funky. Ash is feeling fuzzy now, huh? Now I wonder if he would like some chocolate chip cookies and milk with that! On with the story, you dope, Mysteria Pearl! Gosh, I can be so annoying sometimes!)

“Mysteria-kun! You’ll just make him pass out or die if you touch him!”

“Oops!” She said, sweat dropping,
“Sorry! I forgot!” (Man, what a ditz, huh? At least I’m not that bad... All I do is run into walls and conveniently fall down countless sets of stairs… eheh...)

The mirage-looking woman stood up.

“Why- how are you here? To torture me?” Ash asked

“It's not important how we got here. We were sent here so here we are. What is important is that the wedding is starting.”

Ash lowered his face again,
“I’m not that oblivious.” (Oh, contraire, Ashy-boy, you are so dense a brick wall couldn’t compare to you. XD)

“So you’re just going to let the love of your life marry someone she doesn’t love? You’re pathetic.” Ashro mumbled

“Shut up! I love her more than anything!” Ash growled,
“Like you care,” He added under his breath.

“Of course we care,” Mysteria said quietly,
“But we can’t do anything to help you. Even we even touch you, it could result in death.”

“Then what the *bleep* can I do!?”

(Sorry about the technical difficulties, folks, the bleeps are really just… er… the microphone’s busted! That’s it *sigh* boy... That was a close one!)

“I don’t know…” Mysteria said.

Ashro looked off in the distance, (well, basically he just got a kind of bland look at he stared into nothingness, but let's pertend he looked into the distance, shall we?)
“But you better do something soon, because the “Song of the Bride” is starting... And I sense that that poor girl is about to faint.”
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Ashro was more correct than you could have guessed.

Misty was just about the colour you turn when you burp (I’VE HEARD!!!) and taste Coke, chocolate pudding, steak, chicken, goldfish, and that weird fruit that you mom made you eat. 0_o Yeah, I know, gross! But try tasting it and then you’ll see the colour of Misty’s face. Ick… eew…

The Song of the Bride began to play and before Misty, the large cherry wood doors were pulled open. She was the only person in the wedding procession. Slowly and unsurely, she began down the aisle, on the edge of consciousness.

Matuke narrowed his now dull eyes and smiled a half smile that seemed to say,
‘You see, my dear? I always get my way.’

Misty swallowed once again, closed her eyes to gain more consciousness, and then continued down the aisle
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Keshi and Keu had finally made it to the door but two huge guards jumped in their way, blocking their way.

“Get out of my way!” Keu shouted. That obviously didn’t work and the guards grabbed he and Keshi, dragging them inside, covering their mouths with their hands. They couldn’t take them to the front just then, because the wedding had started.

Misty passed the row of the Professors she knew, all looking very solemn with their arms crossed. Then there was a row with Officer Jenny’s. The row in front of them were seated the Joy’s and in front of them were some acquaintances that Misty had met along their journey.

The front consisted of Mrs. Ketchum, Daisy, Lily, Violet, Sheathie, Janie, Maxie, May and Drew.

But no Ash. He and Keu were nowhere in sight.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

YAY! Chapter 20 is now officially out! I’m sorry if it wasn’t dramatic as chapter 19 but chapter 21 will have you on the edge of your seat!

I actually got some PM’s saying that some people, who hadn’t even replied, wanted Misty to marry Matuke or end up with Keuyu or another character! I never expected my OC’s (original characters) to actually be that popular! Wow!

Thank you so much all of my awesome reviewers! You are the best!

Lol. Nice chapter. Not a Pokeshipper but seems dramatic enough to me. :p Got some punctuation problems there though. But all is good.
Can't wait for chapter 21. =]

Ooh. Sweaty, tan, blonde boy. Me likey. XDThis killed me.

Really, it did. *ishded*

The chapter was interesting. More of the character interactions and the build-up as we approach the "Wedding March" (the song of the Bride you mentioned, perhaps?). A bit more of the Mysteria and Ashro mystery...which is unusual in itself, but it was kind of cool to see them showing up outside of flashback after so long.

Overall, good chapter. And Ash is so screwed.

Suddenly I keep having the Legend of Zelda music playing in my brain. <_< Graagh.

Thank you all so much for the replies!

Yay! I'm so relieved, becuase it's really good while listening to tense music (that's what I was listeningto when I wrote it) but when everything's silent... it seemed... kind of dorky XD But I'm so glad you liked it! Chapter 21 is on the way as we speak! I'm hoping *coughHOPINGcough* to have it out by tomorrow... but that just may not be possible XD


This killed me. Really, it did. *ishded*

YAY! That was like my fav line in this chapter XD !!!!!!!!!!!!!! DOON'T DIE! Live! You have to live at least until the next chappie *gets electric thingings that doctors use* "CLEAR!" *boom* "CLEAR!" *Boom*


The chapter was interesting. More of the character interactions and the build-up as we approach the "Wedding March" (the song of the Bride you mentioned, perhaps?).

yesh XD evil isn't me? People call it the "Wedding March?" Everyone I know told me it's the Song of the Bride. 0_o how peculiar...


A bit more of the Mysteria and Ashro mystery...which is unusual in itself, but it was kind of cool to see them showing up outside of flashback after so long.

I'm not unusual! XD *attempts to do a hair flip and somehow manages to flip the comp chair backwards and ends up sprawling on the floor* okay then... maybe Mysteria and Ashro are a bit... different. Yes, I very much like their characters, so I thought it would be cute if they had a more important role, yes?

Mwahahaha......TEH SUSPENSE!!!!!! Overall, good chapter. And Ash is so screwed

XD I had one of my friends proof-read my chapter 20 and she's like,
"Is Ash going to blow up or something? It doesn't seem like he'll make it in time!"

In my own personal opinion *talk show voice* I'd think that Ash would be... like... in that big Pokeball in the sky...

Love the way you put it though XD


I say you bring in Pikachu with an adamantium sword and hack those chains apart. Hah.

that would be... interesting @.@ but I thought Pikachu was locked up in a electric cage, near Ash... That'd be pretty cool, though :D


Suddenly I keep having the Legend of Zelda music playing in my brain. <_< Graagh.

wow... really?


Must.....wait.....till......Chapter.....21.......-splat-

I'm sorry!!! :) I'll get it out as soon as possible!

That was good. I liked seeing more of Keshi's crush on Keu. I think she's my favorite of your OCs. It was interesting that you had Ashron and Mysteria try to help Ash. Poor Misty. I wonder what's gonna happen next. I would still suggest that you not do parenthetical notes though. If this were a different kind of story, a parody or comedy, it would fit, but it kinda breaks up the mood of the story, which is kinda dark. Anyway, keep up the good work!

Kinda dark? That's the first time it's been described as that XD But I can't help the annoying little side notes! It's the way I write XD !

Keshi x Keu is really cute, I have to say! Keushi is such a flirty shipping

hehehe! I just found out it's not the mic or your fault. I have Keu and Ashy here to explain (I had to practically rip Keu out of Keshi's grasp XD And Ash wasn't so easy to pry away from Misty on the break! XD)

Ash: uh... sorry in... kinda advance... for having a dirty mouth... er... yeah...

Keu: What he MEANS to say, but can't, is that we lost control of our tempers, because of the people we adore. Isn't that right, Ash?

Ash: t-the ones w-we a-adore? um... *bright red* y-yes...

Mysteria Pearl- *pokes each of them in the ckeek* Aren't they cute? Anyhoo, I gotta get back to recording this story, right Ashy? Right Keu? apalogize!

You better compensate me for getting me electrified by the wires...getting into the hospital...-makes up a bunch of tales and Ash and Keu get bored, and walks away- HEY GET BACK HERE! I haven't finished my Lecture! For that...I'm going to lecture your author...-glances at Mysteria Pearl- MUWHAHAHAHA! -gets a squeaky toy hammer and chases Mysteria Pearl-

Anyway, in order to toture Mysteria Pearl more...-tears away her script for the story- -cackles- Now she can't update her story! So, you better update Chapter 21 without the script, or else...-looks at GrandPaPa's Dog...- Hm...Want some more toture?

Mysteria Pearl
5th June 2006, 6:23 AM
NOOO! Not my beloved script!!! Although, so far, this chapter is shorter than the others, (so far, it's only 2162 words) it's being much harder to write.

HUGE POKESHIPPY CHAPTER!!!

also, Keushi, Contestshipping, a little Max x Janie (don't have a name 4 it yet) shipping and a couple of others that may just take you by surprise!

NOT THE DOGGY! *climbs up the tree* I'm.. eh... more of a cat person... NOT THE SQUEAKY HAMMAR!!! *ducks*

I'm so sorry that this chappie is taking like forever to get out, but it's soooo good that I don't want to mess a single thing up~

"GAAHG!" that was a freaky noise 0_o I shoulda recorded it.

~ Mysteria Pearl ~

Chapter 21 of Cape of the Ninetails has finally arrived! Are you exited? Or is it that you have nothing to do and had some time to waste? XD

Well, as usual, pg-pg13. Don’t own the show, game or the official character, just my OC’s. Don’t even try to steal them or there will be consequences! Muahaha! *evil grin*

There’s some Keushi as well as Mysteria x Ashro (Mysterious-Beings-Shipping; MBS) and some Chibi-shipping (Max x Janie) as well as Contestshipping

MAJOR POKESHIPPING!!!!!
________________________________________
Chapter 21- I need you

“Hurry!” Mysteria said, pulling at her thoughtful husband’s sleeve,
“Or that poor dear will die of stress!”

“I’m thinking, I’m thinking!” Ashro said.

“There’s no time…” Ash said quietly,
“Just please save Misty, please!”

“Oh no,” Mysteria said,
“We can’t interfere with wedding ceremonies... It’s a rule that we late owners of the Ninetails have… I’m sorry… But we can help your Pikachu!” With that, she snapped and the cage holding Pikachu unfolded and there sat the fluffy little yellow Pokemon with red cheeks,
“Pipipi! Pi Pikachu!” (Thank you, Mysteria!)

“*bleep*”

“Oh, but Ashro, me have to do something!” Mysteria said, a vision of a black Ninetails appearing by her side. She sat down on it and put her face in her hands.

Ashro kneeled down in front of Ash,
“Kid, c’mon. You can do it! You have to escape on your own! You can do it, kid!”

Ash pulled lightly on the chains and received a strong zap. But by this time he was almost numb due to the lack of blood and the fried nerve-ends. Blood dripped freely down out of his nose and mouth, but in spite of that, he felt a tiny twang of hope.

“You have to do it for your true love!” Mysteria coaxed.

Ashro frowned seriously,
“Kid, I was just like you, tied up and nowhere to go, but when I though of my Mysteria… It brought me the confidence that I needed! Think about how much you love her! How much you want her! What she means to you! How much you need her!”

*Misty…

If it wasn’t for you, I wouldn’t be where I am today… you… you bring me so much happiness… with everything you do… every little, seemingly insignificant thing…*

“ARRAGH!” Ash cried as he gave a huge tug to the chains, tearing more flesh off his body and splattering more blood across the white floor and walls. (It looks tie-dye-like 0_o)

“Yes! Yes, go Ash! You can do it!” Mysteria cheered on (as did Mysteria Pearl)

Ash ripped the chains away from the walls, severing his body to the extreme.

His limp body fell to the floor with a thud and a crash of the chains,
“I… I’m going to die…” he whispered as a tear of pain ran sideways down his face,
“I’m really going to die…”

“No! You have to go save your princess! Do you want to be separated forever?!” Mysteria pried. Ash slowly, painfully sat up.

“Run! You have to make it there in time.” Ash tried to stand, failed three times, and then finally succeeded. Chains still attached to his arms and legs, he started down the hall, zombie-like,
“Pika pichu…” Pikachu mumbled as he rummaged through his pocket and pulled out his camcorder.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Misty slowly walked down the aisle, in the eyes of some of her closest friends and her family. Matuke smiled down at her, eyes still empty and looming.

She reached the main stage and Matuke took her hand,
“You look lovely, my dear.” He said in a low, monotone voice

“Dearly beloved,” the preacher began to speak, but all Misty’s mind could linger on was the fact that Ash was nowhere in sight and she rather die than be married to Matuke.

Meanwhile, among the crowd, all those who were truly beloved to her weren’t there, but those who were presence were weeping; not is happiness, but in sorrow, sadness, and pity.

Matuke took her hand and he said all of his vows, about how he would be faithful forever and such.

Then the preacher turned to Misty
“I… Matuke, I promise… to be forever faithful… to never… leave your side.” That’s all Misty could choke out before she melted into tears.

“My dear, it’s fine…”

The preacher nodded,
“Do you promise…” Misty bit her lip and the man’s words echoed loudly in her head as she prepared to become Matuke’s wife

“I do.” Matuke said, squeezing Misty’s hand.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
“Kid, you ain’t going anywhere.” The guard said to the fried boy

“If you don’t let me in, you‘re going to die.” Ash said menacingly as there were two bright flashes of light behind him, one blue and one orange. The guard backed up against the door in fear as a Royally-dressed man and woman appeared along with two looming Ninetails-- one black and the other orange.

The lady swooped up next to him,
“If I were you,” She said majestically,
“I would get out of Ash, my, and my husband’s way.”

“N-no way, lady! I have orders from--” Seconds later, Ashro was at his wife’s side, glaring down at the man,
“How dare you not do what my wife says!” he said, striking him across the face with his fist. The man fell to the floor, unconscious due to the touch of the mysterious male being.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
“And do you, Misty Waters, promise to love and to cherish Matuke Haetaka forever and for eternity? In sickness and in health? Till death do you part?”

“I… I… I d-”

“No she doesn’t!” Everyone’s attention shifted towards the back of the humongous room.

There Ash stood, beaten and bruised.

Now there was no remaining flesh around his wrists and ankles; just a few muscles attached to his limbs along with some shredded skin. Misty could see straight to the bones of his arms and legs. His clothes were caked with blood, as was what was left of his body

“Misty,” He said weakly,
“I’m so sorry! And I--”

“SILENCE YOU BUFFOON!” Matuke roared,
“How DARE you interrupt my wedding! Guards! Arrest him! Kill him NOW!”

“Wait!” Keshi cried, shoving the guards aside with tremendous strength,
“Guards I order you to halt!” The guards stopped short, confused slightly as the guard holding Keu released him

“Don’t stop! She is a traitor! She’s broken Mistress Yolanda’s control! She’s not one of us! GET THEM!” The guards launched themselves once more at Ash and Keshi.

“Keu!” Keshi cried as another guard grabbed at her. Keu kicked the guard in the stomach, sending him to his knees, but it was too late to save Ash. The guards grabbed Ash by the neck and by his upper arms and then dragged him up to where Misty and Matuke were standing. As they roughly let Ash’s body fall to the ground, his chains clinked on the floor and lay around him

“Ash!” Misty cried and she scurried down the stairs and to Ash’s side. A huge guard stepped in front of her and shoved her away from Ash. (How rude.) Somehow, Ash managed to pull himself up to his knees and a guard took him by the back of his neck,

“Misty…” He said as he lowered his head. It was then that she realized he was weeping... For her.

“Oh Ash…” She whispered, almost completely to herself

“The truth is…” Ash said quietly, scornfully,
“I don’t want you to marry him, even if you’re only protecting me… because I-I--”

“Silence!” Matuke roared again; infuriated. All at once, his eyes cleared up and he got a rather insane look upon his face. He pulled out the whip that was attached to his belt,

“I have suffered far too long! This is all I have! I will get my way!” He raised the long whip in the air, but just before he could crack it at Ash, the great blue Ninetails appeared in front of them all,

“Halt!” Came her voice. Everything; absolutely everything, went completely silent in the tremendous hall as Keshi ran to Keu and he encircled her protectively in his strong, tan arms,
“Matuke,” The voice said,
“I sense regret and anguish in your voice. Do you wish not to be a prince? Do you wish not to be under my control? I am the reason that you are great; that you are even ALIVE! I saved you, nurtured you! You owe me everything and now, how dare you question my authority! You defiant child! You dare brake my control!?”

Keshi cowered closed to Keuyu, pulling herself as close as possible to the strong blonde boy, who, in return, held her tighter and whispered comforting things to her. The crowd looked on in awe as their male leader, the one with no fear and seemingly no pity bit his tongue. The prince bowed,
“Mother, I am your faithful servant, as am I your slave. Do what you wish with me as punishment,” Matuke said resentfully.

“Insolent child. I will deal with you later. As for you,” The voice said as Yolanda’s head turned to face Misty and Ash,
“How dare you go against what my slave orders?!” Woah. Anger management, as well as some therapy, is much needed here.

The guard who had previously been holding Ash grabbed his bloody, torn up arms and pulled them, along with the attached chains, up behind his back, sending searing pain throughout his body. Ash let out a cry of pain that included some things that I’d rather not put here.

“Stop! Please stop!” Misty pleaded. Ash looked up at her with a look of immense pain and at the same time such sorrow and love,
“Misty…” He said in a whisper as he blinked tears out of his eyes,

“Misty… I… I… I love you!”

(What? Lemme clean all those old auto parts out of my ears! Did he just- what? Woah! Rewind! He just said--!!!)

Ash stared down at his knees that were now soaked by blood and tears (as best he could with a man tightly gripping his neck and arms.)
Everyone-- in the entire room--was in shock. May, for one, squealed through her gag and put her head on Drew’s shoulder and his rested his head on top of hers. Daisy, Lily, and Violet, along with all their other friends, were on the edge of their seats in anticipation. Keu was gently rubbing Keshi’s back and caressing her hair absentmindedly.

All Misty could do was stand there in shock.

**bleep*… I knew this would happen... But why me?* Then Ash remembered Ashro’s words,


“Think about how much you love her! How much you want her! What she means to you! How much you need her!”

“Misty… I-I’m sorry... But... I… I can’t even think about losing you forever! I would die! I love everything a-about you! Your smile gives me a reason to live! I love you! I want you and only you to love me... only me… Misty! I-I need you!”

When he said that his face was as red as-- well... At least I think it was red... It’s so hard to tell when he’s covered in blood. 0_o

Misty collapsed to her knees and gently wrapped her arms around his neck, sobbing into his collar,

“Ash… I love you too! I love you more than anything!” She said in tears before she pulled back, just a little, placing her lips upon his, sending something like a shockwave through his body. Not that he needed one, mind you, he had enough from those awful electric chains. But this shockwave... it felt pleasant to his body and they both shivered at the sensation.

The audience exploded into applause and roared in cheers.

The guard that had been holding Ash dropped his arms and let go of his neck, and Ash kneeled there, stunned; being kissed absolutely senseless. (come on everybody! “Aww!”) As his mind (finally) registered what was happening, he somehow managed to lift his shredded hands and held Misty in his arms, reacting to the kiss. As they slowly pulled apart, Ash was flabbergasted to find that Misty was still there-- she hadn’t disappeared at his touch, like she had all those times in his dreams.

Meanwhile, Misty was in just as much awe as him. Still enveloped by his warm embrace against his chest, they heard a strange noise coming from Yolanda’s direction. As they looked up, sparks began to surround the great blue creature,

“How DARE you!” the voice shouted above the cheers of the audience. Ash glanced over Misty’s shoulder and then the two, Misty helping Ash, stood up. Ash’s arm was slung over Misty’s shoulder

“I challenge the water Master to a Pokemon battle! Her strongest Pokemon verses me!” The voice shouted. Before Misty could reply, though, Ash shouted,
“You stole all her Pokemon! She can’t fight you, so I’ll fight you instead!”

“Fine.” Yolanda said.

“If I win,” Ash said,
“I get to capture you! And you’ll return Misty-kun’s Pokemon!”

“Agreed,” Yolanda said,
“But when I win, the girl marries Matuke as planned and I get your and your friends’ service as my slaves forever!”

“Fine!” Ash said confidentially,
“But I won’t lose! Pikachu!” He called to his ever-faithful little rodent friend, who, by the way, was still sitting at the door, camcorder in hand and recording. Pikachu grinned, totally embarrassed, and stuffed the camera away in his pocket .

( 0_o what fluffy, little rodent has a pocket anyhow? I guess… he does… wow... I wish I could fit a camcorder in my pocket. It’d be very handy, what, with all the comic-book-worthy stuff that randomly happens to me XD)

Pikachu jumped onto Ash’s shoulder.

“Don’t hurt Yolanda too badly…” Misty whispered to Ash

“This is coming from the girl who doesn’t mind whacking my head with a mallet from time to time?” He asked, grinning a wide, mischievous grin.

Misty ignored his last comment but then got an eviler idea,
“And Ash… Good luck…” Misty said as she kissed Ash on his lower jaw, making him tingle from head to toe. He turned as red as a motor home that was on fire (I’ve seen one so I should know XD) and Misty was left as red as the Burgundy Hall itself.

Brock cleared his throat and stood up, thus pulling on his chains and getting the “shock” of his life (awful pun, sorry! XD)

The charred man coughed,
“I’ll be the referee... If someone’ll un-chain me…” The Ninetails nodded and a guard ran to release Brock of his chains. He ran over between Yolanda and Ash,
“This will be a one-on-one Pokemon battle between Ash Ketchum and the challenger, Yolanda. The last standing wins! You may begin!” He ran out of the way as the two Pokemon took their stances

Before Ash could say a word, Yolanda’s eyes began to glow purple, as well as the fluffy little rodent we’ve all come to love. The Ninetails looked up and Pikachu shot up In the air, smashing into the roof and being smacked almost unconscious.

*That Ninetails doesn’t even have to move! *bleep* I’ll never beat her!*

“Come on, Pikachu! Thunderbolt!” Ash watched up, helpless as Pikachu tried to thunderbolt the giant fox but instead received a shock himself. Again and again the little rodent tried, to no avail, until Ash caught on.

*I get it! It’s just like those chains! They’re not really that strong, but will send what you try to do back on you!*

“Pikachu!” He called up to the medium-well-done Pikachu,
“Charge up all your power now!” The yellow fuzz ball did what his master commanded, his little red cheeks almost bursting with the amount of energy,
“Now I want you to use thunderbolt on yourself!”

“What’s this? A last ditch effort? Or is it merely suicidal?” The voice said as the Ninetails cocked its head.

That was when Pikachu released his fury and shocked himself, shattering the evil-looking purple glow around him and falling to the floor

“What?!” The voice screamed.

“Yeah!” Ash cried,
“Now Pikachu! Charge up!”

The little Pikachu began to glow orange (yes, orange of all colours.) The ten tailed Ninetails slowly stood, realizing one of it’s ultimate techniques had been broken,
“No matter,” The voice said,
“I have many other plans!” Her eyes began to glow red this time as she launched herself towards Pikachu,
“One look in my eyes, and you’ll be powerless to beat me!” One suggestion, never tell your strategy to the opponent. Just saying. It’ll make your life a whole lot easier.

“Close your eyes, Pikachu!” Ash called to his Pokemon. Pikachu obeyed and shut his round, black eyes.

“Fool!” The voice cried,
“How are you supposed to vanquish me without being able to see me!?” Pikachu’s glow had faded

“Pikachu, agility to your right!” Even with his eyes closed, Pikachu jumped over the large, blue beast and safely ran to his right.

“Okay, Pikachu! Charge up all of your electricity! We’re going to make one colossal (Wow, Ashy, have you been reading the dictionary lately?) final attack! Okay buddy!?”

“Pipi pi!”

The Ninetails turned, eyes still emitting the red colour, and growled,
“You little Pika pipsqueak! I’ll tear you apart!”

“Pikachu!” Ash called,
“I want you to unleash all your thunder all at once across this whole battlefield!” With that, Pikachu released the largest thunderbolt the world has seen. Ever. It lit up the entire place, as well as setting a few things on fire and obliterating much else. It had faded before it could hit Ash or any of the audience, thank goodness.

The great blue Ninetails collapsed, exhausted, and fried.

“Yes!” Ash said with as much happiness in his voice as he could muster. He pulled a Pokeball out of his pocked and captured the beast.

“This match is over! The victor is Ash Ketchum!” Brock shouted while the auditorium once again exploded into cheering. Ash stood there, still shocked that he had even beaten the great beast when he heard Matuke call him,
“Hey Ash!” ash turned to find a very clear-eyed, sweet looking boy throw something that glittered towards him. Ash caught it, opened his hands, and grinned.

“Ash! You won!” Misty cried as she ran to his and threw her arms around him. Ash picked her up and she wrapped her long legs around his body. (She had long ago taken off the hoops of her hoop skirt, seeing as they were so very bothersome.)

Ash then did what he thought he’d never, even in a billion years, do. He leaned forward and gently kissed her. Tears of joy ran down her porcelain face as they separated.

While all the attention was on "center stage", no one seemed to notice that a few people; more specifically two people, the prince and another, had slipped away..

“Misty…” Ash said slowly,
“I want you to have this,” He took the Pokeball that held Yolanda out of his pocket and handed it to her as he let her down.

“Ash, I have to be the happiest and luckiest girl in the world!” She said, still drawn near to him.

“Not yet…” Ash said, smiling, as he knelt down on one knee and took her hand in his,
“I want to spend every day of the rest of my life with you, by your side, forever,” Misty turned as red as Ash’s blood smeared across her face.

*Oh my… would he!? is he!?* Misty thought as there was a momentary silence

“I gave you a promise ring long ago that we would meet again… I see you still wear it on your pointer finger… and now that we have re-united... I’ve realized I love you more than anything, and I can’t live without you; I can‘t stand to be apart from you any longer,” Misty’s eyes grew large in shock as he kissed her hand,

“Misty Waters… will you marry me?” He asked holding out a beautiful gold and diamond ring and slipping it onto her thing finger. Misty broke down into tears and threw her arm around him, sliding to the floor, tight in his embrace
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
YAY! NOW DON”T LEAVE! THERE’S GOING TO BE A WHATSAMAHOSHIETS… what’s it called? Oh! A post log! DON’T YOU DARE MOVE YOUR TUSHIE FROM THAT SEAT!!!!

Remember in one of the very first chapters, Misty feels her pointer finger to feel if something's still there? That's the ring he was speaking of!

Well, was it good? I HOPE SO!!! I actually wrote a battle scene! Yay! I’m so proud of myself! I hope it was okay and not too dull to read, As it’s my first time with the thorough battle scene and all! (I’ve done others, just not that long B4)

This chappie was 3,399 words! Wow! WOW! Not too much shippyness other than Poke, I’m sorry! Well… there was Mysteria x Ashro (I’m going to call it… Mysterious-Beings-Shipping, MBS), Keushi, Contestshipping, and I suppose a little Max x Janie (what to call it… how about Chibi-shipping?)

I’ll post the post-log as soon as somebody replies XD Other than me, that is.

I hope you enjoyed it!

REMEMBER: It’s NOT done yet!!!!

Yay! Ash finally confessed! The battle was pretty good, though it was a little short for such a big one, and I would have preferred Pikachu to not have used Recover. It was a little too convenient. But anyway, the rest of it was really sweet. I really liked the Keshi and Keu moments. Can't wait to read the rest!

Felix is right!

;025; He should have killed off the audience. <_< Or caused serious damage.....Mwahahaha......

Anyway, back to the chapter. The shipping.....w00t! The torture......Mmm.....The sadist likes it. ^_^

The general chapter.....It was okay except for the battle. I didn't like that battle. It should have taken very long. A little more drumrolls, a little more movement, Pikachu getting a little hurt, barely beating Yolanda, Ash taking a hell lot of damage at the same time, and then they finally win and all the 1337 scenes occur. ^_^ The general YES! I BEAT THE BAD GUY feeling will be really burning. It should have been more of a battle to end all battles. Climax. >_< Rawr.

Anyhow, I shall wait for whatever you are about to throw at me next.

Nope, there's still the post-log. and if you think about it, there's a lotta loose ends that need to be tied up. But if it's to stressful to read the trama that happens after the perfect moment, you can leave 0_o BUT PLEASE DON'T!

I tried to really tone down on the humerous parts here, to make it more dramatic... but I don't think it really... I don't know... worked XD


oh my god! I love this chapter!! it's GREAT! sorry for not commenting to your other chapters but I loved those as well! great job!

I am so thrilled you liked it!!!!!!! It's alright that you didn't reply for some of the other chapters, I'm just happy you liked it! Thank you!

Ah...so the confession. 'Bout time, frankly. It was cute 'n all, and mushy as could be.

The battle was a bit lacking, I will say that. Not much of a drum-up to the final attack, and the "look into my eyes" thing was kind of stupid. This Ninetales should really know better than to spill its secret move. Like, if Pikachu actually fell for the attack briefly, or something like that...that would have been a bit better, I think.

Beyond that...I'll be waiting for your epilogue (though the story hardly seems finished).
