A/N: I would rate this fic R...it does have adult situations but not a lot of detail. If you disagree with my rating let me know!
I would say that this fic is semi-multishipping...I'm Team Misty so there's a lot of Pokeshipping, but also some Advanceshipping...Brock is also dating someone...which would include Brockshipping(I think)....but I digress, you'll just have to read it and figure out if a couple you support is in it.
"How much longer before we reach Cerulean City?" May Young asked as she pulled her long brown hair back into a ponytail to keep it from blowing in the wind as she rode in her boyfriend's convertable.
Ash looked at the clock, "I'd say another 5 minutes...10 at most it's not very far." He looked at her out of the corner of his eye. When he told her that he was going to run over the the Cerulean Gym to personally invite Misty and her sisters to the banquet Prof. Oak and the rest of the Pokemon League Committee was throwing in his honor, she had insisted on going with him. Her story was that she wanted to see Misty but he wasn't so sure. They hardly knew eachother and he couldn't imagine that they had gotten closer when he wasn't around. Of course it could always be jealousy, he had known Misty for most of his life and they used to be best friends. When he first met May, Misty was the subject of most of their conversations for awhile. He thought he may have had feelings for her, every now and then he would look at her and see the person she was blossoming into, instead of his tomboyish best friend. These thoughts freaked him out, at 13 he wasn't ready for love or anything resembling it, and yet when he wasn't expecting it there it was. He had tried to tell her once, when she was leaving to take care of the gym, but when he looked up at her face and saw all the hope behind her eyes he couldn't go through with it. He couldn't risk a friendship as deep as the one he had with Misty over something that he wasn't even sure of. That was something he had never told anyone, what he had really meant to say, instead of commenting on her bike and the fact that she was in a hurry.
When they pulled up to the gym Ash felt a strange sensation come over him. Almost the same as when he came home after being away for long, a mixture of excitement and calm. It was weird, he had never thought of Cerulean City as home...maybe it was just Misty, she was his first friend on his journey and the one that stayed with him the longest.
May jumped out of the car after him and up to the door, "I'm really excited about seeing Misty again!" she exclaimed.
"Me too." he admited, "I haven't been a very good friend lately...I almost never call her as often as I used to, we've only been writing letters...and even that isn't very regularly."
She smiled at him, then rang the doorbell. One of Misty's sisters answered...Lily, he thought...
"Oh my god! Ash is that you?" she asked twirling her hair, "You're so grown up!" She batted her eyes a couple times, leaving him shocked. Daisy, Lily, and Violet had never not liked Ash, they were just vaguely indifferent because he was Misty's friend. He had forgotten how long it had been since he had seen the Sensational Sisters, but he knew he had to look significantly better than the last time. He was taller, tanner, and more muscular, travelling and training had done wonders for him. It would seem as if he was finally in the league of causing beauties like Misty's sisters to blush. It made him smile.
"He's totally not someone I'd choose for a boyfriend, but you're no prize yourself" he remembered Daisy saying to Misty when he first found out about her older sisters. Lily wanted him now...
"Ash!" May snapped her fingers in front of his face, snapping him out of his daydream.
"Oh yeah..."he blushed a little, "I came to invite you all to my Master Banquet." he presented her with the invitation, "Um...is Misty here? I was hoping to see her..."
Lily shook her head, "she left a couple days ago to run an errand for the gym, she should be back by next week, but I don't know what day...I could have her call you!"
"No, that's fine...I'll call her." he put a smile on even though he was upset on the inside. "I should probably head back home, but tell Misty...that I hope she'll come...I hope all of you come!" he waved as he and May got back into his car and headed towards Pallet town.
"Are you sad that Misty wasn't home?" May asked once they were on the road
"A little. I was hoping to see her and say hi, but hopefully she'll come to the banquet and we can catch up there!" he smiled then turned on the radio hoping to end all the conversation in Misty's direction.
Misty raised an eyebrow as she watched a flashy blue convertable pull out of the gym's parking lot and roar down the street. We had a challenger? Please God let Daisy have been there! Her sisters had come a long way from the teenagers that they had been...but she still only trusted the eldest sister to run the gym while she was gone.
"I'm home!" she called opening the door, "Violet? Daisy? Lily? Where are you guys?"
"Misty!" Lily walked in the kitchen when her sister was setting her bags on the table, "Did you get the badges?"
"Yeah." she handed her a box of small blue teardrop shaped pins, "Did we just have a challenger? I saw a car pull out as I was on my way in..."
"Oh! No, that was Ash...and some girl..." Lily trailed off.
"Ash? My Ash?" Misty asked.
"Your Ash?" Lily teased.
"My friend Ash...you know what I meant..." she growled flushing slightly.
"Yes, it was your friend Ash, he wanted me to give you this" she handed Misty the unopened envelope.
"What is it?" she looked at Lily questioningly.
"Open it and find out, duh! He said it's for all of us, I just figured you'd want it."
Misty carefully opened it and pulled out a gold and silver embossed card inviting the Sensational Sisters of Cerulean City to a party celebrating Ash Ketchum's induction in the Pokemon League Masters Society.
"Oh my God." she couldn't help the smile that found itself on her face, "He finally did it."
"So are you going to go?" Lily asked, "I still have to talk to Daisy and Violet...but they don't need all four of us."
"I don't know, I'll have to think about it..."
"Why? He's your friend and he did specifically say that he wanted you there, and he's gotten really cute! Don't tell me it's because of that girl."
"It's not...not really....I haven't spoken to the guy in 4 years. I mean, we've had the odd phone conversation and letters back and forth...but we're not as close as we used to be..."
"So go and catch up, get close again!"
"It's not that easy..." Misty sighed.
"You know...you never really told us what happened when you went out to Hoenn..." Lily said softly.
"What do you mean?"
"You left the gym all ready to travel with your friends again then came back a few days later. We could tell you were upset but we didn't want to ask you what had happened until you were ready to tell us."
"I wasn't upset, I missed the gym so I came home." she shook her head, "Anyway, I don't know if I'll go to this or not. But I would like to keep it...if that's okay with you guys..."
"Sure, what would we want it for anyway?" Lily opened the fridge and pulled out a bottle of water.
"Where are Daisy and Violet anyway?" Misty asked.
"Daisy conned Tracey into taking her to a movie and Violet had a hair appointment, they should both be back by dinner...Speaking of which, what are you making?"
Misty's jaw dropped, "I just got home and you already want me to make you dinner? What were you planning on having if I hadn't come home?"
"I dunno," Lily shrugged, "Probably nothing."
She sighed, "Well, I don't feel like cooking...how about we order a pizza?"
"Sounds good, order 2 larges, Tracey will probably stay for dinner, he's been doing that a lot lately." Lily winked as Misty laughed.
"Has he asked her out yet?"
"No, they're both still pretending that there's nothing going on between them." Lily rolled her eyes still baffled by her older sister's sudden personality shift when it came to Tracey. Daisy had always been so outgoing around boys and she never seemed to dwell on one for too long, but this latest romance has been going on for a couple years. Although neither one of them ever admitted to being more than friends, it was clear to everyone around them.
"I think it's sweet." Misty sighed dreamily, "I never would have thought that Daisy would fall for someone as down-to-earth as Tracey. He's good for her."
"Whatever, all I know is that I'm losing my manicure partner." Lily groaned.
Well there you have it, chapter 1. I know it's not anything too exciting, I was really just trying to set up the situation between Ash and Misty. The next chapter will get a little more exciting. Will Misty go to the banquet? and all that sort of stuff.
