It was a bright Sunday morning in the residence of Littleroot Town. It was the day when the beautiful, talented and smart Amethyst entered her first day of school, kindergarden! Oh, she how she couldn't wait. She totally dreamed of going to school, making new friends, joining after school activites (isn't she too young for that?), playing all day! She sighed dreamily out the window of her lavender colored room. The walls were tinted with splashes of yellow to her liking. The wall had pictures of her parents. Especially ones of her lovely mom.
Her mom was Sapphire Birch, a famous Professor who took her dad's place because he was getting "too old". She giggled, thinking it was because her grandpa didn't seem that old. Maybe he was such a lazy bum, she thought.
She admired her mother, alot. Who wouldn't? She was beautiful, intelligent and a very good cook! She improved her cooking skills from the last... few years, though. Ahem. She also was a talented Pokemon battler. She wasn't the Champion of Hoenn after all, though. She decided to take her father's place in his time of need. Amethyst smiled at her mom's kind and thoughtfulness.
Amethyst yawned and stretched her arms. It was time to get out of bed, just in time for breakfast! She glanced passed the Skitty Clock which read 9:31 A.M. She changed quickly out of her PJ's, into a light sleeveless yellow dress, with a lavender mini jacket and wore brown sandals. She rushed through the bathroom, brushing her medium lengthed brown hair, similiar to her mom's hair style and had a strand of hair sticking out, like her dad. She beamed happily, her magenta eyes showing satisfactory. Finally, she brushed her teeth and left her bedroom.
Downstairs, there was Sapphire cooking pancakes and muffins. She cringed at the burnt smell of pancakes and quickly turned off the stove. She groaned at the black tinted meal, which supposedly were pancakes. She hung her head down in embarrasment. Today just wasn't her day.
Yesterday, she was exhausted from all the chasing trying to study a rare shiny Mightyena. She had never seen one before, and wanted to do research on how certain Pokemon has it's unique appearance. She chuckled to herself as she thought of appearance. She dumped the pancakes down the trash can and placed the handful of blueberry muffins on a big plate. The woman sighed and sat on a wooden chair of her dining table.
Since when she was caught up of appearance? Didn't beauty come from the inside, not the outside? Admittedly, she had been self-concious at times. At a conference, she was pretty worried if she looked too much like she was on drugs, and the rest of the Professors would laugh. They patted her back saying it's okay to look pretty bad, at least all the time she wasn't, eh? Perhaps she was just being ridiculous.
She laughed out loud and bended her elbows on the table, hands cupping her cheeks. She was pretty dead tired, she need more sleep. Too many sleepless nights. 'How did dad stand staying up long for so many weeks?' She wrly thought. She shrugged it off, heading upstairs to get ready for work.
While heading down the stairs, Amethyst and her 'annoying' brother Topaz were chasing each other. Topaz screamed in fear as Amethyst was inching closer, and closer to him. He hated her, and loathed her touching him. His mom caught the falling as kid as he fell. He lunged over at her, facing a flustered Amethyst.
"Mooooom, she was chasing me again!" He whined, clinging onto his mother's grip.
Sapphire looked like she didn't want to deal with this any longer. She mentally wanted to beat the crap out of her own kids, but no, she did not had the heart to.
"Amethyst...," she started desperately. "Please stop bugging your little brother..."
Amethyst cried angrily, "But mommy he's always taking my things!" She pointed her little finger at the accused boy.
"Because you always touch MY STUFF!!!" He shrieked with tears in of his brown eyes. The tears were dripping along his black and red t-shirt and matching black shorts. He buried his face in his mother's chest and softly cried.
This literally ****** Amethyst off. He always cried and clung to her parents for comfort and pity. She despised his call for attention. She wished, just wished, he got the same punishments as she did. She pouted and grimaced, ready to shout out her feelings.
"That's enough Topaz!" Sapphire spatted with fury. "Stop crying, I'm tired of carrying all the stress you AND Amethyst make!"
Topaz looked up at her with awe. His eyes widened but stopped crying. For once of his life, he was scared of his mom. She put him on the step of the staircase in front of her and glared at the two children.
"Amethyst, Topaz... please stop fighting. For today." She pleaded, trying to conceal the weakened state of her mind.
They both looked at each other. Topaz frowned of how much his sister looked like mom. It was creepy, and he didn't think such a great mom will have a child like Amethyst. She was an annoying brat and girly girl. He hated girls like that. In fact, overall, he disliked girls alot.
Amethyst on the other hand, hated how Topaz was. He would always whine and complain when he's not his quiet old self. He would always bug her to the point she punches him, or to the point she wants him dead. But of course, she did still care about him... he was her brother.
"For mommy?" Sapphire wrapped her fingers together and giving the puppy eyes look. Their children frown at her sad attempt to make them stop fighting, but gave in anyways.
"Okay, mommy..." They both said in unison. Sapphire's expression lightened. At least, for one day, she would have peace and quiet. Although, she would be at work most of the time. She continued her steps up the stairs.
Topaz and Amethyst did nothing but stare at each other for a while. Topaz nervously tapped his left foot and chewed on his lip. Amethyst was have a hard time staying still and glanced at the ceiling, then looking back at the ground.
"So..." Topaz started. "What should... we do... together?" He regretted saying that as soon as Amethyst smirked at him.
"Hah, who said we can play with each other? Mommy said no fighting only." She placed her hands on her petite hips.
Topaz's idea of hanging out with Amethyst diminished. "Whatever." He turned back, heading down stairs for breakfast. 'Sheesh, girls.'
His sister hesitated, looking a bit confused. She shrugged it off and followed his steps.
At the afternoon, Ruby sat on his work desk, bored. No, he wasn't bored of designing clothes as his job, but bored of having no one to talk to for a long time. Sure, he had his loving wife but they rarely saw each other due to their careers. His heart sank of the fact at all, he hasn't communicated with his family so much. He shook his head, he did see them, he should be grateful for that. Only at the weekends, but when he had an unplanned meeting, he had to go immediately. When he enters the room with his boss, he sometimes feels like killing him for breaking his life away from his kids. He would be thinking of ways to piss him off. Ruby sighed, he knew his boss had no intentions to place stress on him, but life in the real world sure is a *****.
He stared at his desk. Cloth, thread, needles and other materials were everywhere. He hated it. He would used to scare the wits out of himself when something was out of order, but he was... kind of used to it now. It still disgusted him that he turned out to be slightly messy. He wanted to be clean, damnit.
He felt the piece of cloth he was working on. He was to make some shirt for women. It was supposed to have flowers and interesting colors that supposed fitted. He banged his head. Wincing, he placed his head down, trying to relax.
He sucked when it came to creativity. He did. He didn't know how he got the job as a fashion designer, but he did.
"The boss hired me for pity, or to be the most crappiest designer in this building to make others look good," he snorted bitterly.
But his displeasure dissapeared as he thought of Sapphire.
She was the most encouraging person who supported his dreams of being a designer. True, in the past she dimissed his dreams as a Pokemon Coordinator with harsh words and fights... but she's changed. She finally accepted his beliefs and opinions a few years back.
Not only that, she was a wonderful woman. Her intelligence and beauty mesmerized his soul. She had a ...cute voice, not those annoying high-pitched voices other ladies had. She was different. One bad quality was that she had a temper for things. He laughed when they encountered each other for the second time. She almost scared him to death with her angry eyes, fangs and tarzarn attire. She would always smack him. He nearly drowned when she was about to toss him in the ocean.
He loved how he would calm her down with a hug or a kiss, though. He grinned at how she would blush and try to regain her self confidence. She was just so adorable that time, she was.
Thoughts broke out when his dear, 'beloved' boss entered his room. 'Oh, how lovely.' He sarcastically remarked to himself.
"Hello, how are you sir?" His boss looked like a business man but with.. style. He has long black hair but appeared to be in his 30's or 40's. He has a mustache, and usually wore colorful outfits. He winced at that fruity colors.
"Fine, you?" Ruby simply replied. He was surprisingly polite.
"Good, good..." His expression showed uncertainy and hesitation. Ruby cocked an eyebrow his weird actions today.
"Say, Ruby. Do you mind taking the day off? No, no, in fact.. two days off. Maybe.. three?" He gulped a bit. Afraid Ruby will freak out and insist on working on more big and better designs for the world to see.
Ruby was bewildered. He stood up from his chair and stared at his boss with disbelief. He clenched his fists on his desk and hung his jaw open.
"What...?" He gasped out. "Really...? Three days...?"
The boss was slightly taken back by his baffled look. "Well, if you like...--"
"Would LIKE?" Ruby scoffed. His boss blinked.
"I Would LOVE it, man!" He grinned and clasped his hands together, cheering for joy. Three whole days, with his children--Amethyst, Topaz and Diamond! Not to mention, his beloved Sapphire. Well, for a few hours at least...
His boss twitched when he emphasized the word, 'man'.
"Thank you, sir, THANK YOU!" Ruby gathered his belongings, shoving them in his black bag. He quickly shook his boss's hands and glomped him.
Slammed against the floor, the boss cringed and held a dazed expression.
"FINALLY OUT OF THIS HELLHOLE! Woo-hoo!" Ruby screamed, echoing through the halls. Everyone came out of their rooms and stared at the man strangely.
In fact, some of the windows cracked.
A man took notice of this. "You know, you're paying for that." Ruby took out his wallet and gave his some of his cash.
"I'm going home, woooooooo!" Tears streamed down of his eyes excitedly. He loved his boss, now. His was glad his boss gave him the opportunity to see his family again! But.. he did glomp him to death, so he doesn't expect another one anytime soon...
Everyone muttered some things of him being gay, or just mentally retarded and went back to their own business. The boss was still dazed out.
"Freak..." He managed to mumble.
