I’m sorry encyclopika. I will try as hard as possible to make chapters longer.
As the sun rose over New Bark Town, A few Hoothoot were retiring back to their nest. A Spinarak scuttled up a tree. In a room in the local Pokémon Center, a brunette teenage girl was sleeping. On the floor beside her bed lay a few snoozing Pokémon. There was a knock on the door and a soft voice said, “May, you need to wake up soon if you want to get to the finals in time!”
The girl groaned and said sleepily, “Five more minutes dad…” It wasn’t long before she started snoring again.
Meanwhile, over at the contest hall, people were piling in through the doors trying to purchase tickets. A police motorbike was parked outside the hall. “Can everyone please line up in an orderly fashion.” Officer Jenny told the crowd. “You, yes you with the big hair! Get back in line!” A man with a brown Afro trudged to the back of the line. Contests have become increasingly popular in Johto. Everyone would try as hard as possible to get their hands on tickets. The main entrance of the contest hall was in a state of chaos.
Back at the Pokémon centre, May was still snoozing. Skitty let itself out of its pokéball. Skitty realised that her trainer was late for an important match. It then noticed that her trainer was still asleep and snoring as loud as a snorlax so it used doubleslap on May. May woke abruptly screaming Drew’s name. May realised that her Skitty was staring at her, wondering what on earth had just happened. May blushed and said, “I’m sorry Skitty, I didn’t mean to scare you.” Skitty replied with a faint purr. “Oh no! I’m late for the contest!” May shrieked. She quickly changed into her usual outfit and rushed out of the room. A few seconds, she returned, “Almost forgot these” she said to herself as she picked up her pokéballs. She ran down the winding stairs. She avoided taking elevators now, because of what happened a few days ago. She borrowed a pokécenter bike and headed for the contest hall.
A puffed-out and panting May reached the contest hall. She propped the bike up against the wall and rushed into the hall. She quickly dumped her stuff in a locker in the changing rooms. She ran towards the main hall. As she was running she collided with a door. As she regained her balance, she noticed a sign on the door that said, “PULL”, as she was running, she tried pushing the doors at high speed. May pulled open the glass doors and the main hall opened up in front of her, there was an eager screaming crowd, the judges were waiting for her. Drew was stood in the centre of the stage. The announcer, Katherine was stood beside him. “Due to his opponent not being here, I declare Drew…. Oh, hi May! Pleased to see you, the match will continue! Both trainers please take to the stage. Both trainers ran up the steps on either side of the stage. They both had a pokéball in hand, waiting for the judges to be ready. “Drew, May, begin when you’re ready!” shouted the head judge.
“Oh, I’m ready, ready to cream you May!” shouted Drew as he threw his pokéball high in to the air. A butterfree appeared on stage with a shimmering powder scattering over the stage. On the other side of the stage, a brown furry fox-like Pokémon appeared on stage. “Butterfree! Silver Wind!” Drew commanded. The butterfly Pokémon gracefully aimed a forceful attack at the little Evee. May reacted quickly, “Dodge it, and use Double Team!” Evee obeyed with a cry. Many copies of Evee created a ring, surrounding Butterfree. Drew’s Butterfree glanced around and tried locating the real Evee. “Butterfree! Bug Upheaval!” Butterfree attacked a clone. It disappeared. “Evee quickly! Shadow ball!!” The real Evee shot a round purple orb from its mouth. It collided with butterfree’s attack with a big bang. The two Pokémon were thrown back. As the smoke cleared, both Pokémon were panting. Both Pokémon were covered in dust. Both Pokémon faced each other. Butterfree descended from midair with a crash. “Butterfree is down for the count! May and Evee have won the New Bark Contest! Please join me to collect your ribbon!”
Outside, once everything had quietened down, May was signing autographs. There were lots of fans surrounding her. There was a person in front of her that looked strangely familiar. She had long purple hair. She was wearing a white t-shirt and a pink skirt. “Harley?” May asked.
“I’m not Harley silly!” came the reply, “I’m Haley. Hmm… You know Harley? He’s my twin brother!” Have you seen him about?”
“Not lately” answered May, “Not since the Hoenn Grande Festival.”
A tall green haired boy ran up to the crowd, panting profusely, “Hey girls! You’re fans of famous trainers aren’t you?” the girls nodded as a reply, “I’ve just seen Wallace, Hoenn Champion in town!” The girls giggled and ran towards the town centre. “Really?” asked May.
“No silly, that was just a distraction! I came here to talk to you. You did great in the battle just now. I was surprised. You deserve that ribbon. And since its nearly Christmas, I’m here to give you a gift.” The cold weather froze May. She didn’t know what was going on. Soft white flakes floated down from the sky. Drew pressed a pink rose into May’s hand. He leaned closer to May and whispered, “Happy Christmas, May” and he gave her a quick kiss on the cheek. From a nearby tree, there was a sudden flash but both May and Drew did not notice it. Drew immediately ran off after that, leaving May stunned.
I hope that was long enough. I’m sorry if it isn’t. I added a bit of festive mood in there. Well, I hope you like it! Merry Christmas! Do I need to do anything with the layout of the fic cos it always looks very wide and not very long...
