Rated PG to be safe. ^^
I have this posted on Fanfiction.net and soon it'll be on the pokemon tower..but I thought I'd give you guys a chance to read it here, too. <33 ^_^
And yes, I realize that in the second chapter, you might think there's a lemon. Let me be the one to assure you that NOTHING beyond what I wrote down is happening. So no lemons. I rated this PG because I was afraid people would be like "OMG SEXUAL REFERENCE!!!111" but it's not a sexual reference at all. Kays? ^_^;;
OH! And I'm bringing in an OC too. >_> To be with Brock. Maybe. >___> He's awfully lonely in this fic..
Disclaimer: You guys know the drill. I don't own pokemon. ^.^;
I'm including two chapters in this post cause I've already written two chapters of it..if that's against any rules, let me know and I'll take off chapter two and post it later >_______<;;;;
May was bored. Completely bored out of her mind. She was currently seated outside the local pokemon center, waiting for Brock, Max, Ash, and Misty, who had just joined up with them in the last town, to get through with their physical examinations. Lately, those competing in the League challenge and any contest needed to have a physical once a year, to be sure that they weren’t pushing themselves too far. Ash & Co. had been passing through a town when they heard about the new rule, so they decided to go ahead and get it over with. May had already been examined, so she decided to wait for them outside. She needed the fresh air to think about..him.
Her number one rival.
The annoying, egotistical, jerk-faced, adorab-...
Wait, Drew? Adorable?
‘Since when have I thought Drew was adorable??’ she thought to herself. Yet a little voice in the back of her head told her that she had always loved him. The roses..she knew they weren’t really for her Beautifly. Drew was giving the roses to her.
May noticed a small daisy growing in the grass next to the bench. She blinked and, upon impulse, picked it from the ground and held it in her hands, examining it a bit. She had seen it done on movies..so..why wouldn’t it work now?
“He loves me..He loves me not..He loves me..He loves me not..” May picked the petals off, one by one, till she was left with just one petal. May had been so deep in thought that she didn’t hear someone walking up behind her.
Drew was confused. Who was this ‘he’ that May was talking about? He had just noticed May sitting on the bench near the Pokemon Center, and so he decided to go on over to her and tease her just a little bit. She was quite adorable when she was angry with him.
Drew had known for a while that he loved her; He didn’t want to be rejected, though. All of his life, he worked hard for the things he got. He didn’t just sit on his butt and become as good a Coordinator as he had become. He wanted to work hard for May’s love, too. He just wasn’t quite sure how to, though-
“I dunno if I want to pick the last one..What if..what if it’s wrong? What if I’m getting my hopes up?” May’s voice brought him out of his thoughts. She still hadn’t noticed his presence, so he decided to wait just a little longer. Maybe it’d shed some light on who she was talking about.
He didn’t have to wait long.
“Drew could never love me..” she mumbled. May reached up to wipe a tear from her eye, and suddenly felt someone leaning over her shoulder. A hand was grabbing the flower, plucking the last petal and chuckling.
That chuckle. She knew that chuckle. She’d heard it so many times..it sent shivers up her spine.
It was him.
“He loves you,” Drew said softly, his mouth right next to her ear.
She sat there with her mouth open. Yep, he’d done it. He’d left her speechless. He could’ve made a smart aleck remark about how he’d finally managed to shut her up, but he didn’t have the heart to do that.
May turned her head slightly, confirming her gut feeling that Drew was, in fact, saying what she thought he said. She looked at him, and sparkling blue eyes met emerald green ones. The look in his eyes made her want to melt. She did what her heart told her to do without hesitation. She leaned forward a little bit while closing her eyes, and he copied her actions until their lips met. It wasn't a deep kiss - it was innocent and gentle. He broke off and smiled at her, sitting down next to her on the bench and casually (A/N: Hah, like Drew could act casual -- he just kissed the girl of his dreams!) put his arm on the back of the bench, inching it around May's shoulder.
'Well, at least I'm not bored anymore..' She smiled a little bit at her own joke and snuggled up closer to him.
Ash and Co. had just walked out of the Pokemon Center when Misty spotted May and Drew. Ash, being dense, hadn't realized that Drew and May were having a "lovey-dovey" moment, and was about to open his mouth to call May's name, but Misty silenced him with her hand over his mouth. Max looked over and gagged -- his sister was making kissy faces with that Drew kid! Brock chuckled and covered Max's eyes and looked over at Misty. "Should we disturb them?"
Misty grinned back at him, and Ash chuckled as Misty removed her hand.. "Nah, let's leave them alone," she said, mentally congratulated May on snagging her guy. Misty was still in the process of 'snagging' her guy, who happened to be standing right next to her. Misty turned around and walked back into the pokemon center, dragging her friends along with her so they could find Nurse Joy and inquire about a room, since Drew and May didn't look like they were going to be done anytime soon. It was getting late anyways.
Misty was feeling quite mischevious tonight. After assuring Nurse Joy that nothing (beyond cuddling and innocent stuff) would happen between the two new lovebirds, she arranged for Nurse Joy to tell a little white lie. Joy wasn’t too thrilled (A/N: No pun intended) about lying, but she agreed that it was about time those two got together, and they needed a little push to keep things going smoothly. So, it was arranged for May and Drew to share a room -- Nurse Joy would tell the couple that there was only one room left, and it only had one bed in it. (A/N: NO LEMONS! Sorry!)
“Thanks Nurse Joy!” Misty said, glancing behind her as the Pokemon Center’s doors opened and the cute couple walked in. Misty winked at Joy and went off to find the boys and tell them of her little plan.
May couldn’t believe it. Drew was holding her hand! And..and..he kissed her! All in the last five minutes! He didn’t think she was ugly or stupid or annoying..he..he loved her! May felt like she was on top of the world. She smiled at Nurse Joy, gently squeezing Drew’s hand in reassurance.
“Oh, hello May, Drew. I take it you two want to spend the night at the Pokemon Center and need a room?” They nodded at her and she typed up something on her computer. “Well..Here’s the thing: I only have one room available..and..it has one bed. So..I suppose that since you’re both tired, you could share the room? Maybe one could sleep on the floor or something? If you’re not comfortable, I can probably make some other arrangements..”
“No, no, it’s perfectly fine,” Drew said, saving May the trouble of answering. Joy nodded and smiled. “Alrighty then..Here’s your key, it’s room number 17..go down that hallway, first door to the left,” she said, handing Drew the key. May just enjoyed the moment with Drew, not quite paying attention. Drew led her down the hallway and into their room.
Tonight was going to be..interesting.
“Um, Drew? Aren’t you cold down there?” May said, peeking her head over the side of the bed to the floor where Drew was sleeping. Drew was actually cold and uncomfortable, but he didn’t want to push May in their new-found relationship. Not that he would do anything..he just didn’t want to scare her away. He smiled and tried to tell her that he was fine, but an involuntary shiver went up his back, which didn’t go unnoticed by May. “Alright, that’s it. Get your butt up here, Drew. You’re sleeping up here in the warm bed. I’ll sleep..um..” May mumbled the next few words, but Drew caught them. “..I’ll sleep up here with you if you want..butifyouwant..I’llsleepinthefloo-” she couldn’t finish her mumbling, because Drew had already climbed up into the bed and wrapped his arms around her, answering her question for her.
‘He’s so warm..’ May thought as she snuggled up closer to Drew’s chest. Drew had already fallen asleep, and May found out a little secret about him..
...Drew had what her mom called the ‘teddy bear syndrome’. ‘Mom said that Dad has it..he always snuggles up to her while he’s fast asleep,’ she thought. Drew looked so adorable! Just like a teddy bear. A green teddy bear. Hm..she’d have to remember that for his next birthday.
It wasn’t quite late yet, so May wasn’t all that tired. But she wasn’t complaining about her current situation. No sirree. It gave her more time to think..about..well..her friends.
Two of her friends in particular.
Misty and Ash.
They needed to get together. May knew that they loved each other, but..well, she might as well just say it: Ash was dense. Slower than a slowpoke when it came to matters of the heart.
That’s when it hit her.
She would tell Drew about it in the morning. They’d play matchmaker..and get those two together, once and for all.
