Eeeeeeeeee!!! I'm actually scared of posting this. I don't know if people are going to like this! Ahhhhh!!! PG 13.
“And that,” Drew said. “Is why I have to tell May I love her before Christmas.”
“Could you repeat that? I wasn’t paying attention.” His raven haired friend Ash said. Drew and Pikachu, Ash’s childhood and most trusted friend, sweatdropped together.
“I pour my heat out to you and you weren’t even listening?!?!” Drew exploded.
“Yeah, that about sums it up.” Ash said. Drew sighed. Him and Ash has put their differences aside about a year ago and had begun to travel together along with Brock and Misty, other childhood friends for Ash, Max, who was now a psychic pokemon trainer with an exceptionally strong Gardevoir that he’d come back for when it was a Ralts, and May, Ash’s best friend and now a best friend of Drew-but apparently Drew wanted it to be more. Ash often caught him staring at her with his green eyes in an admiring and loving way. May never caught this gaze, but she was actually the only one who didn’t. Even Max knew.
Drew still had fangirls, more rabid than ever, and they hated May with a passion for stealing Drew’s’ affections away from them…not that he actually had affections for them. In his eyes, May was the only one who he’d ever consider dating. She was sweet, kind to everyone that wasn’t Harley and had a radiance that shone from others.
Drew could just picture her smiling face right now, gazing at him with her sapphire pools for eyes. He shook off the memory, and yes it was a memory because it had happened before, to pay attention to his highly annoying friend.
“Okay. I like May.” He said.
“Well no duh. Even Max knows that. Even your fangirls know that. May’s the only one who doesn’t know that!” Ash laughed.
“Well thank you Doctor Obvious! That’s why I have to tell her! And before Christmas!” Drew said. Ash looked puzzled.
“Why before Christmas?” He asked. Drew hammered his head onto the armchair that he was sat in, as they were in a pokemon center in Johto. Ash had decided to come back to take the gym challenge again as the Johto council had decided to make the Elite four battle amongst the trainers in the league too and he thought of it as more of a challenge that way, after battling (and losing badly to) Agatha shortly after leaving Hoenn.
“Because, you knucklehead, I want to take her to La Rousse city to stay with my parents for new year. And they need to know by Christmas. And you can’t just ask a girl to your house without…you know, feeling something.” Drew said.
“When it’s May you have to tell, it’ll probably be annoyance. You can barely catch up to her with all the training she’s been doing for the next contest. When she learnt Robert was going to be there, she had to. After all, he beat you in Hoenn.” Ash said, pointing it out.
“Yeah, but she beat me in Kanto…even though it was probably a fluke.” Drew said, giving his trademark hair flip.
“You really should stop doing that,” said May. She had secretly come through the doors and had listened to the battle orientated part of the two’s conversation. Drew’s heart quickened pace the way it always did. But this time he had a reason. May was wearing a low cut tank top and shorts as she had just been running with her pokemon. He could feel his cheeks flushing red more by the second but shook it off. He gave his hair another flick.
“Hey,” He said. “It keeps my hair out of my eyes and it looks cool.”
“Whatever,” May said. “I’m going to take a shower so I’m locking the girl’s room door.”
“Okay, we’ll meet you for dinner, what’d you think we should have?” Ash asked his brunette friend. “Personally, I’m in the mood for a burger.”
“Well, I’d like to go for noodles if that’s okay so I’ll meet you guys back at the room.” Drew said.
“Sounds good to me. I’m in too,” May said. She began walking away but Drew leapt out of his chair and grabbed her by the shoulders, taking her by surprise. “Drew,” She said. “What are you doing?”
“Sorry, I needed to stop you,” Drew said, letting go. “…So, you’re coming with me?” He asked.
“Yeah…is that alright? I like noodles is all.” May replied. Ash, behind them watched the scene with much interest and a massive grin on his face.
“O-okay…uh, I’ll meet you in the park at 7?” Drew asked her.
“Cool,” May said, flashing a dazzling smile. “It’s a date. See ya, boys.” She then turned around leaving Drew absorbed into his own thoughts.
“A date…” He thought. “She said it was a date…” When May left the lobby he pumped his arm. “I gotta get changed…” Drew said.
“What’s wrong with your outfit?” Ash asked. “It’s cool!” Drew sweatdropped again.
“Ash. Let me explain this to you slowly…” Drew said. “It’s dinner-”
“Noodles.” Ash interrupted.
“Whatever. It’s still dinner. With May. The girl I like. The girl I like like. And these clothes haven’t been washed in two days. Misty can even smell it and she’s got a cold.” Drew said.
“It’s a guy trademark,” Ash said, leaning back. “The man-smell.”
“You mean the revolting mix of pizza, aerosols and pure sweat?” Misty asked from the armchair she was sitting in.
“Exactly!” Ash grinned. Misty and Drew sweatdropped.
“Sometimes it surprises me that Ash is this dense…” Misty said. Drew nodded in agreement and then went to the guy’s room.”
May Maple sighed and flopped down onto her bed after taking her shower. Her wet shoulders dampened the sheets but at the moment she really didn’t care. She gazed at the outfit she’d chosen for the evening: a long sleeved low cut shirt, a short black skirt and sandals, also with red chopsticks for her hair.
She arose and began to get changed carefully into it, making sure it didn’t wrinkle. After all, dinner with Drew had to be perfect. Just perfect. Just like him and his attitude…May froze at what she just thought. Sure, she was looking forward to their dinner together but Drew was just a friend…wasn’t he?
Around half an hour later, May was running out and to the park with her brown pack in hold. She rushed straight past Nurse joy, giving her a shock.
“Careful!” She yelled. “There’s supposed to be an unruly Glailie on the loose!!!”
“Don’t worry Nurse Joy!” May cried back. “I’m in safe hands!!!”
