This is my first fanfiction story. I am a little nervous about it as this is the first fiction I wrote in a little bit. I had stop writing for a little bit to take a break and learn how to write better. Well, I decided to use this as a tool for improving my writing, whether it be doing better characters, plots, grammar, etc.
Now the story is based on the novella Old Man and the Sea. The reason I am writing this story based on the novella is because I liked the message of the story and I think it could be a good idea for a Pokemon fanfiction. Usually I see a lot of adventure and orginial trainer stories but not much parables, as this is what the story is going to be. The story will be as long as a novella but updates might take a little long as I am very busy at the moment. Also, the story might be a little boring at first but it will get better as the story progresses. Before I start the story, here is a warning:
Warning: This story will be rated PG-13 for Violence. If you do not want to read scenes of Pokemon being eaten, then leave this thread right now.
Okay I will be quiet. Well, nothing else to say then to sit back and enjoy the story.

PROLOGUE: THE STORM
Harman is a small town that is your typical small town. Everyone knowing each other, small markets with people yelling out what they want you to buy, small comfortable houses, a lot of nice and friendly people, and children playing everywhere. The town is also filled with green grasses with beautiful flowers, houses on top of hills, and is next to a beautiful navy blue sea. The minute you enter this town you would have wish your town or city is like Harman.
Right now Harman is covered with the tears of the shadowed color clouds and the winds are crying yelling in short shrieks. The small markets is now all closed and many people with their Pokemon are trying to go inside their houses as fast as they can. Many of them are really soaked and wet. Some people and the Pokemon had fell down because of the slippery wet ground.
In her small brown home, Betty is cooking dinner. Today’s dinner is chicken soup with carrots and lettuce. The smell is liked a hot steam bath filled with nice smelling flowers. Her husband Markus is looking outside the window. He is seeing the chaos that is going outside. Luckily I am not outside where I get soaking wet and catching a cold, Markus thought to himself. Before Markus was watching the news to see the reports on the storm.
“Right now it is forty five degrees with the wind at twenty five miles per hour and rain pouring down two inches above ground. Also, the clouds are moving at twenty miles per hour so the rain should be stop in a couple of hours.”
Betty saw that her husband is looking through the window. Markus’s face is shown with grief and concern.
“Markus, why are you still looking through the window? Also, if you are not watching the television no more, why don’t you turn it off? You are wasting electricity!”
“I can hear the television can’t I?” said Markus in a laughing tone. Betty does not like it when her husband jokes like that.
“Markus!” said Betty slowly but in a harsh tone.
“Just joking Betty. Anyways, I am worried about Aries, her Shelgon, and Damus.”
Aries is Betty and Markus’s son and Damus is a Pokemon fisherman who is friends with both Markus and Aries. During the summer Aries would always go help with Damus on catching some fish. Usually Betty does not approve of Aries going fishing with Damus because most of the time Damus cannot catch some seafood. She believes that Aries can catch more Pokemon fishes alone then being with Damus. Sometimes Betty even believes that Damus is the most unlucky person there is.
“I do not know why Aries would want to be with Damus. Damus uses his Pokemon to faint the fish Pokemon he catches.”
“Well Betty, at least Damus is not really trying to use those Pokemon for bad uses, like taking over the world. How can you catch a fish Pokemon if it is not fainted? All the Pokemon fisherman does that.”
“Not all Pokemon fisherman. Stan uses harpoons to get his catches, not his Pokemon. I liked Damus better when he was a Pokemon coordinator, and he was a real good one too.”
Suddenly Markus is seeing four shadowy figures coming by. The shadowy figures are moving as fast as their muddy feet can handle.
“Betty, I think it is them! They are finally here!”
Suddenly Markus rushed through the door to the entrance of the house and open it. Facing in front of Markus is an old man, a young boy, a Manectric, and a soaking wet Shelgon.
