A/N: This is my first time posting my fan fiction so please go easy on me. I have tried to stay faithful to the characters personality as I can. Please R+R! love Sammy (CuteDrew667)
May is starting her journey to Kanto alone and finds herself aboard a beautiful ferry that would take her to Vermillion City. She runs into a familiar green-haired person on board and ends up arguing with him. Later at the Pokemon Centre she gets a little shock from the person she least expected to be there for her...
Rated PG-13 for the first few chapters, rated R/NC-17 in later Parts.
Part 1 - Starting the Journey
‘Well, I guess this is goodbye,’ said May sadly, as she looked at Ash and Brock.
‘Yeah, see you May,’ said Ash hugging her.
‘Bye, you guys,’ she said, hugging Brock as well.
As May departed with her brother Max, she felt her eyes brimming with tears. She could not believe that she was beginning her travelling alone in a few days. She unlocked the front door and (after being engulfed in hugs by her mom and dad) hurried up to her room, before her tears threatened to spill down her face. Ash and Brock were her best friends, and now they were going back to Kanto and would probably continue to travel with Misty Waterflower.
May sighed and lay back on her bed and felt herself drift off to sleep.
Two days later May left her house again to travel alone to Kanto.
‘Why didn’t you just stay with Ash and Brock and travel to Kanto with them?’ Max had asked.
‘Because I need to do different things, plus they have Misty and I am sure I will find some friends too,’ she said, though in her mind she was doubtful.
‘Go Skitty,’ shouted May, and released Skitty from its Pokéball.
Skitty jumped up onto Mays shoulder and they continued down the valley. It took her two hours to reach the nearest Port and by then it was almost evening. She flashed her Coordinator pass at the guard and boarded on the ferry to Kanto.
She collapsed onto the nearest bench and put her head in her hands. She was exhausted, she had been having bad sleep since two weeks ago, when it dawned her that she would be alone.
‘Miss, I am sorry, but this café is closed now, would you care to go to your room.’
May nodded and walked slowly towards her cabin, looking at the floor. She bumped sharply into someone, and fell over in surprise.
‘Hey watch it,’ she cried, strapping her waist-bag back on.
‘You were the one that…May?’ the person said.
She looked up. Stood in front of her was a tall, young man of about seventeen years with light emerald coloured hair and green eyes.
‘Drew?!’ May exclaimed.
‘So, why would a little rookie like you be wanting to go to Kanto?’ Drew asked smirking, after helping May to her feet.
‘For God’s sake Drew, after all this you still have to believe that you are better than me. I got all five contest ribbons in both Jhoto and Hoenn and were in both of those regions grand festivals. I have proven myself a good co-ordinator, so why don’t you just leave it,’ May exploded.
‘Well, May that is quite a temper you have. Though I think you should remember that though you have made it this far, every time we have battled, I have beaten you,’ said Drew smirking, flicking his hair to the side.
‘Oh, you are just a complete jerk Drew,’ shouted May, ‘now if you will excuse me, I am going to my room and I hope to barely see you when I reach Kanto.’
May pushed passed him and ran into her room with Skitty clinging onto her shoulder. She threw all her Pokéballs into the middle of the room and Combusken, Beautifly, Bulbasaur, Squirtle and Eevee appeared before her (she had passed Munchlax onto Max). Beautifly flew over and sat on her head like it did whenever May was sad.
‘Beauti’, Beautifly,’ it said in an attempt to comfort her.
‘Thanks Beautifly,’ she said smiling up at it.
Skitty jumped from her shoulder and curled up on her lap. Her other Pokémon jumped up on the bed and made noises as though to try and give her strength.
‘You know what guys, you’re right. Drew isn’t going to make me stay in my room. Beautifly come with me up to deck?’ she asked, and Beautifly nodded and closed its eyes in gratitude, ‘yes, the rest of you can have a nice rest.’
She returned them to their Pokéballs and walked triumphantly from the room with Beautifly flying next to her. She reached the deck and gasped as she looked out to sea. The sun was starting to set and the glorious colours reflected on the water to make it even more beautiful.
‘Oh my God, I am, like, your biggest fan, could I have your autograph please?’ May heard a high pitched squeal come from behind her.
She turned around to see Drew sat on a bench alone reading a Kanto Contest Guide, and a group of girls running towards him. May rolled her eyes, some things never change. She watched as Drew lazily signed a photograph of himself for a very shaky fan. Anger boiled inside her. He could at least be nice to his fans. She looked at Drew and thought of his attitude and couldn’t understand why these girls were so infatuated with him. Sure, he was known as a great co-ordinator and stuff like that, but what did all these girls see in his actual personality.
‘Drew, I have been wanting to meet you for so long, you have no idea. I am honoured, you are an amazing person,’ said a pretty, red-haired girl nervously as Drew scribbled his signature on a book she had given him.
‘Well now you have,’ said Drew, not smiling or even looking at the girl.
May’s anger surged to braking point. She marched over to Drew, pushing past the girls.
‘Hey, we were here first, you can get his autograph after us,’ said a tall girl who was holding a photo of Drew’s Roselia.
May ignored her.
‘Drew, you are such a complete jerk,’ May yelled.
‘Well, excuse me for sitting here May,’ Drew said sarcastically.
‘Honestly, you are so selfish, these girls are your fans and you can’t even be bothered to be nice to them. Well, trust me Drew if they really knew you I doubt they be obsessed with you then,’ May said fiercely.
‘Just because you are bitter that I have beaten you and your little friends more times than I can count, there is no need to try and turn these people against me.’
‘Yeah Drew, she is probably just jealous because loads of girls like you. How do you know a loser like her?’ said the girl holding the Roselia picture.
‘Oh well you know what, I am bloody sorry for defending you girls,’ snapped May, walking back to the deck rail, where Beautifly was waiting for her.
She leant on the rail and listened to the girls trying to engage Drew in conversation. She felt a shadow form next to her, and saw one of the fans had come over to her.
‘I am sorry about what my sister said,’ muttered a pretty girl with light purple hair that looked about thirteen.
‘Your sister is the girl with the Roselia picture right?’ May asked realising to resemblance between them.
‘Yeah, that’s Suzie, I’m Lillietta,’ said the girl nicely.
‘Hi, I’m May.’
They shook hands and both looked over at Drew.
‘So, you actually know him,’ said Lillietta incredulously.
‘Yes, unfortunately. Trust me, he isn’t all he seems.’
‘I absolutely love him, though I thought I ought to apologise for my sister’s behaviour. I have got his autograph now and I have actually spoken to him,’ she whispered, her eyes almost filling with tears.
‘Well, I have known him for years and I personally think he is a complete jerk, but it is sweet that you like him so much, and thank you for coming over here. Are you a trainer?’ asked May.
‘Well, I have one Pokémon, a Torchic,’ she said proudly.
‘Wow, awesome, I have Beautifly of course, and Skitty, Combusken, Squirtle, Eevee and Bulbasaur. I am going to be entering the Kanto Grand Festival.’
‘Oh my God, that means you will be with Drew, he is entering too of course,’ squealed Lillietta.
‘I guess, though I am not as excited as you. Are you going to try and enter?’
‘Well, I dream of becoming a good co-ordinator, but I have only just started but I want to try and build up a good team of Pokémon and then hopefully enter the next Grand festival. I can’t wait to see you at the festival, I always watch it on TV,’ said the girl, gazing at May in awe.
‘Aw, well thank you,’ said May, feeling very flattered.
‘Do you think you will win?’ asked Lillietta.
‘Oh that is very doubtful, she has never won a Festival.’
Drew had stood up and the cluster of girls were huddled near him. He flicked his hair and smirked at May.
‘Isn’t that true May?’ said Drew, and a couple of the girls looked shocked that he knew May’s name.
‘No I have never won a grand festival, but if you remember I almost beat you in the Hoenn Grand Festival,’ said May angrily.
‘Well “almost” obviously wasn’t good enough, because I beat you in the end. Oh and maybe we should not relive the contest in which you broke down in tears,’ sneered Drew, flicking his hair again.
‘Yes, and I can remember after I defended you to Ash and Brock, you walked out and left me in tears after everything I had done for you. That shows what a complete selfish git you are,’ shrieked May, her voice cracked and she was scared she may cry.
‘Oh come on, was there really any need to break down just because I beat you-’
‘No wonder Ash hated you, he watched on TV as I cried and you left me there. You were so malicious, it wasn’t what you did, it was the way you did it. You have never been nice to me, even after everything I have done to help you, you couldn’t even find it within you to comfort me.’
‘Now you can’t say I have never done anything nice,’ he said, closing his eyes, ‘what about after the Yhuruka convention, on the beach, remember that?’
May blushed and a couple of the girls looked as though they were boiling with rage.
‘Oh, Drew would you like me to tell these lot the thing that you did during at the Yuzuriha Convention?’ said May and it was his turn to blush.
The fans were all looking from one to the other.
‘Hey, you two, were you actually a couple?’ asked Suzie, looking furious.
‘NO!’ said both May and Drew at the same time.
‘So then what happened at the Yuzuriha convention, it doesn’t say anything on your website about it Drew,’ said Lillietta, speaking for the first time since he had come over.
Drew frowned and grabbed May’s arm and pulled her closer to him.
‘I told you that it wasn’t from me,’ Drew hissed at her.
‘Oh really, funny how there was a Roselia’s rose with it,’ May hissed back.
May saw Lillietta over Drew’s shoulder looking as if she was going to cry and suddenly realised how close her and Drew were. She pushed him away and frowned.
‘I’m going back to my room, Lillietta do you want to come?’ May asked, repositioning her waist bag.
‘No,’ said Lillietta fatly, and May realised that she was first and foremost Drew’s fan.
‘Fine, come on Beautifly,’ said May, beckoning Beautifly to follow her.
‘May wait,’ said Drew.
She turned and looked at him. He put his hand into his jacket and his fans edged closer, trying to see what he was getting. He pulled out a red rose and threw it to her like he had on many other occasions. She frowned and looked down at the beautiful, deep-red flower.
‘Like I said before, it is Beautifly not you, so don’t get excited,’ said Drew nastily and his fans looked a little less infuriated as May placed the flower into her waist bag.
May clenched her fists in fury and marched away, hearing the snide remarks and giggles from the girl fans. She slowed down when she got back to the corridor leading to her room. She pulled the rose out of her bag and threw it onto the floor.
‘So do you have a Roselia?’ asked a boy sitting at a bench in the corridor near May, he had his cap pulled down so May could not see his face.
‘No, someone gave it to me,’ answered May bitterly.
‘So, I am guessing he isn’t your favourite guy,’ said the guy with a small laugh.
‘Anything but, Drew is the most arrogant jerk I know,’ said May angrily, ‘just because he has won loads of contests with his bloody Roselia doesn’t mean he has the right to be horrible to me.’
The boy lifted his cap up to look at May.
‘Are you saying that the famous co-ordinator Drew, gave you that flower?’ he said slowly, raising his blue eyebrows that matched his dark hair.
‘Yes, but trust me I am not one of his screaming fans. In fact I wouldn’t mind if I never saw him again. He has made my life a misery whenever I have ever been around him, which unfortunately is quite often, because he happens to be at almost every contest I go to. He may have fans, but it is no surprise to me that he has no real friends, no one would ever be able to get close to him, because of how horrible and cocky he is. I have noticed that no one is ever supporting him at Contests apart from his little girl fans,’ May ranted.
‘Erm-’ began the guy but May cut across him.
‘I almost wish I had never stopped Ash from having a go at him that time at the Hoenn contest. In fact, without me, Drew wouldn’t be alive, I saved his life when we fell into a river on Mirage Island. I told him that it was Wynaut that had saved him, but all they did was pull us out of the river. I didn’t have the strength to lift us both out of the water and I could of easily left him but I kept him above water as best I could while he was unconscious. Even after that, when we were on the boat going away he had to make a snide remark to me. Well, I hope I never see him again, I-’
‘What I was trying to say was…’ said the guy pointing behind May.
May turned to see Drew standing with an expression she had never seen on him before. He knelt and picked up the rose he had given to her and tossed it into a bin that was near him. He flicked his hair and walked away and May felt a rising guilt in her chest.
‘I guess you really do know him then, huh?’ said the guy, pulling his cap back down.
‘Oh for God’s sake, can this day get any worse!?’ screeched May running the rest of the way to her room, ‘return Beautifly.’
Eventually the ferry arrived in Kanto (Vermillion City) and May could barely wait to get out into the real air. Seeing as this was her first time in Kanto, she was more excited than most of the other co-ordinators getting off the ferry. She grinned at Beautifly, who (as usual) was the Pokémon accompanying her gracefully. May proceeded towards the Pokémon Centre happily, forgetting completely about the events on the ferry. She really wanted to explore but she needed a place to stay and the Pokémon centre was the nearest place. She beamed as she approached yet another Nurse Joy.
‘Hello Joy, could I have a room for the night please,’ asked May smiling.
‘Oh I am very sorry dear, the last room was just taken a couple of minutes ago. All the rooms are doubles and most people are on their own, so if you find anyone you know then you could always share.’
May sighed, her happiness vanishing. She didn’t know anyone in Kanto. She turned and banged into someone, causing her to fall back with the impact.
‘Hey, watch where your going?’ said May angrily, looking up.
It was Drew. Typical! She waited for him to insult her, but he just turned and walked away. May suddenly remembered what had happened on the ferry. What she had said about him. She closed her eyes in frustration and then blurted out his name.
‘What?’ he said turning slowly.
‘Listen, I am sorry about everything I said on the ferry. I didn’t mean for it to upset you,’ May said scrambling to her feet.
‘It didn’t hurt me, it just ****** me off,’ Drew snapped.
May gasped, she has never heard Drew swear before. Her eyes started to quiver with emotion.
‘Well, I am sorry, okay? I know we aren’t friends, but I don’t want us to be real enemies,’ May said quietly, walking towards him hesitantly.
‘Whatever. Don’t go soppy on me,’ Drew said, folding his arms.
‘Okay,’ said May quietly.
‘What are you doing now?’ asked Drew sighing in a bored way.
‘Well, all the rooms have been taken so I am wondering is Wakana or someone else is here and I have missed them, because the only way I can stay is if I am with someone else who already has a room,’ May said closing her eyes and bowing her head slightly.
Drew didn’t say anything. She looked up and he was staring at her as though thinking hard.
‘Well, you know, you could always stay with me,’ muttered Drew off-handily.
‘Really?’ exclaimed May, completely taken aback.
‘Yeah, just this once though. I am just on my own, and if you really need somewhere to say then it is no real sacrifice for me,’ said Drew flicking his hair and looking out of the Pokémon Centre doors.
‘Oh thank you Drew,’ said May, clasping her hands together and beaming.
‘No problem, I have the room card though, but I am going up there now anyway, so I can let you in whenever you come back,’ said Drew absently.
‘Well, I will come up now too then,’ said May smiling.
‘Alright then,’ Drew said walking past her so May had to jog up to keep up with him.
They got to the room and Drew slid the card through the slot and it opened. May followed him in uneasily. It suddenly dawned on her that she would be sharing a room with Drew. Not only a guy, but a person who is constantly gossiped about and photographed. If she was seen sharing a room with him, the story would spread so fast, it would reach her mom in Pettleburg City before you can say Just Friends.
Her mother had already made the assumption that her and Drew were more than friends, and she didn’t really want that to be brought up again.
‘Are you just going to stand in the doorway all day, or actually come in?’ Drew’s voice snapped May back to reality.
‘You know Drew, maybe it wouldn’t be very convenient if I stayed with you,’ May mumbled, looking at the floor.
‘What’s the real reason?’
May looked up at him, but he had his back to her and was taking off his jacket to hang up. May’s eyes widened and she quickly shut the door and got into the room hastily.
‘Drew, you are being photographed all the time. The last thing we need is for someone to see you taking your jacket off with me in the room,’ May said, then thought to her that it sounded pretty stupid.
‘Taking my jacket off?’ repeated Drew, and then it registered with him what she meant and he closed his eyes in frustration.
‘Sorry, but you know what it is like…’
‘Well, are you going to stay here or not?’ asked Drew impatiently.
‘I- er, yes thank you,’ said May quietly.
‘Fine, I am going for a swim,’ he paused to think for a second, ‘here you go,’ he passed her the Room Card, ‘just make sure you stay nearby in case I need to get back in.’
‘Ok, thank you Drew,’ said May.
He shrugged and grabbed his bag and walked out of the room, tossing his light-purple jacket on the desk as he went. May sat slowly on one of the single beds and smiled. It was the first real smile that had appeared on her pretty face in quite a few weeks.
