Greetings, pokeshippers! This is me again, but this time writing a fic. I would really appreciate comments, but don't be so harsh, as it is my first fic. It might take me some time to write chapters, as this is my first! Anyway, here we go.
Chapter 1 A New Adventure (rating is G haha)
Sunlight came upon the sleepy town of Pallet as a black haired boy was awakened by the chirping of a Pidgey. He slowly got up and yawned.
"Ahh Morning Pikachu."
The lump under his blanket moved slowly, then Pikachu got up sleepily.
"Piika..." it said, mad at his trainer for waking him up.
"Hey buddy, its 7 am. We have things to do."
Delia Ketchum was greeted by the groggy boy.
Ash Ketchum, her son, was 18 years old. He had started his journey with Pikachu, then had traveled around Kanto and Johto with Brock and Misty, two of his best friends. He had to part with them 5 years ago, and it was a very sad parting, especially with Misty, whom he had promised would travel with him again one day.
Ash had just arrived from Hoenn, and was taking a short break in his hometown.
"Good morning Ash. Feeling good today?"
"yaaaaaaaaaaawn" was his reply.
"Anyway Professor Oak was looking for you, i think he has another adventure you, as usual."
"Really? That's gonna be awesome!" he excitedly replied.
Later that morning, Ash and pikachu were at Professor Oak's.
"Well Ash, I suppose you want me to tell you a new region for you to explore." the professor said.
"Well, yeah! duhhh..." said Ash rudely.
"There IS something new I would like you to check out, but it doesn't involve catching Pokemon or collecting badges." said the prof.
"WHAT! You drag me here in the early morning, and waste my time, while I could have been giving my Pokemon some training? Geez!" he complained.
"Ash, there's more to life than collecting badges. Anyway, I want you to take a jetplane to the distant island of Desolado, and take a train to a mountain range to Devil's Canyon and..
"Coool!" Ash interrupted again.
"Anything called Devil's Canyon is surely exciting"!
"I want you to search for a certain treasure called the Salvation Gem..."
"Coool!" he interrupted again.
"Wait, how do you know that it's in the canyon place? Where there should I look? If its treasure, shouldn't treasure hunters be looking, and not me?"
"Ash, cool it. Listen to me for a second." Oak said.
"Every hundred years, in the middle of Devil's Canyon, the Salvation Gem, the rarest and most valuable jewel in the world, is said to appear to the person that deserves it the most. Now, I want you to go there, search for it, and bring it back home with you."
"Ok, but what would you use it for?" Ash asked.
" I heard, that there are a group of rogue treasure hunters called The Cruel Jewels, that are after it, and are searching for it as we speak.
"But if they are already after it, I don't have a chance of finding it before them!" Ash exclaimed.
"Ash, the Salvation Gem only appears to those who deserve its worth. If the Cruel Jewel members go there with wrong intentions, it won't appear to them."
Ash nodded his head. A long pause. Ash then said: "I'll do it."
"Psyduck, get out of the pool!" came the scream of an orange-haired girl.
"You know you cant swim, so stop trying!"
"Psyayay..." came the sad reply."
"Misty", came a groggy voice.
"What are you doing mopping the floor at 12 midnight?"
"Well, I wouldn't be doing this, Daisy, if you didn't have this huge party, I wouldnt!"
Daisy sweatdropped and left.
Misty sighed. Of her sisters hadn't gone on that 6 month shopping trip she would still be traveling with her closest friend, Ash Ketchum.
She secretly liked him, but never got the guts to tell him, fearing rejection.
Oh, how she longed to be with him, even for the shortest time.
The video phone interrupted her thoughts. It was Brock another of her friends.
"Hey Brock." she said.
"Oh hi Misty, did I wake you?"
"No, I was... busy."
"Good cause I wanted to ask if you if you heard that Ash came home."
"Ash is home?" Misty asked, brightening up.
"Yeah he called and told me he's going off to a distant mountain range."
"Oh." Misty said, saddened by the fact he was leaving just when she knew he had gone home.
"Are you sick? You don't look so happy." Brock asked.
"It's nothing, just that I.. I miss Ash." She said sadly, blushing a bit.
"Oh, Ok." Brock said, looking a bit thoughtful.
Back in Pallet Town, Ash hung up his video phone.
"Who was that honey? Delia asked.
"Oh, what did he need?"
"He told me that I should take Misty with me to Desolado."
"Oh, why don't you?"
"Well, its just that I havent seen her in 5 years and she might have.... changed."
"Nonsense! Call her first thing tomorrow and ask her to come."
The next day, Ash called Misty.
"Hello?" Misty said.
"Hi Mist." Ash grinned.
"ASH?!?!??" Came Misty's reply.
"I havent seen you in ages!" she continued.
"Hahaha" He chuckled, and explained his destination to Misty.
"The Salvation Gem, huh? Well, my sisters are back, and I guess I could come."
"Ok, great!" said Ash.
"Bye! See you in two days." Ash hung up.
Misty calmly hung up, took two steps, took a few moments and shouted:
"Yessssssss!!!! My prayers have been answered!!!!!
Darn, it sucked didn't it? Or not? Comments, please!
