a/n: Okay, I went over this in my head many times and the best way I could come up with to tell this story was to have two seperate stories going on at once. So, to help keep them apart I've come up with this. I'm going to give this fic an R rating, there are very adult situations.
A young dark haired trainer stood at the top of the hill overlooking a quaint, tiny village. There couldn’t have been more than 15 houses including one large plantation with an observatory standing proudly on the edge of town.
“Do you have to run so fast?” he heard a voice complain behind him. “It’s too hot to be chasing after you like this!”
“Maybe you should keep up.” he smirked turning to look at her. She was panting heavily as she pulled her auburn colored hair back into a low ponytail. Her brown eyes glared, but there was a softness behind them. “I wish you wouldn’t do that to your hair, Dee, you look like somebody’s mother.”
“Well it makes sense…I’m going to be.” she proved her point by placing her hands on her slightly protruding stomach.
He smiled half-heartedly, “I know. That’s why we’re here. Pallet Town, to start our new lives as parents…and regular people…” he sighed, “I’m going to miss being a trainer though.”
“We’ve been through this Gabe, you don’t have to give up training…it’s just…soon I’ll be too big to keep traveling with you…and we can’t exactly drag a baby around too.” she put a reassuring hand on his shoulder.
“I know that! The baby is partly my fault anyway. I might as well be punished for it! I just thought I’d never have to get a real job…I was supposed to become a Pokemon Master!” he groaned then began to walk towards the town.
Dee sighed as she followed him. She was beginning to get tired of hearing about his broken dreams. As if she had planned on becoming a mother when she was 17 and moving to a nowhere dump like Pallet Town! Her life was supposed to be more glamorous than that. When her and Gabe became more serious in their relationship they had mapped out their lives together, he was going to become a world renowned Pokemon Master and they would live in a penthouse in Celadon City. Where Dee would spend her days shopping and her nights escorting Gabe to all of the high society dinners. Then the test was positive. Now her parents were so disappointed that they wouldn’t speak to her, and they had to rely on Gabe’s parents for help. Her dream life was slipping out of her grasp and the only things she had to blame was the damn baby! Obviously, her and Gabe held most of the responsibility, but it was easier to blame something she didn’t know.
“We’re here!” she was snapped out of her thoughts by Gabe. She looked up and saw a large building surrounded by a couple dozen different types of pokemon.
“It was nice of Prof Oak to give you a job at his lab and a place for us to live.” she finally spoke up as they began to walk towards the entrance.
Gabe arrogantly brushed a dark curl off of his forehead, “He didn’t really have a choice, my parents are his biggest benefactors. He would have had to find another way to raise money if he had turned down their request.”
Dee frowned, Gabe’s family was loaded. So she still had a hard time trying to figure out why they had to have Gabe get a job when they could easily have paid for them to live comfortably.
“Ah! You must be Gabe and Dee. I was wondering when you would show up.” A vaguely handsome middle-aged man greeted them at the door. He had sandy brown hair and dark intelligent eyes. He was dressed in khakis and a sage green polo shirt with a lab coat over it.
The teenagers nodded with Gabe stepping forward, “Thank you for helping us Professor.”
“Of course, don’t mention it. I can always use an extra pair of hands around here.” he began to walk into the lab gesturing for them to follow. In the first room was a very pregnant young woman was tending to a couple baby squirtle. She had dark brown hair that fell loosely around her shoulders and navy blue eyes. Delia wasn't sure how anyone so big could be any help to Prof Oak, but it seemed that she was working more than just playing with the squirtle.
“Jasmine!” he exclaimed, “this is Gabe Michaels and Dee Bennet. The new aides I was telling you about.”
“Oh, hello!” Jasmine stood and walked over to them, “I’m Jasmine, Prof Oak’s daughter-in-law.” they shook hands.
“Jasmine, why don’t you show Dee her new home while I finish giving Gabe the tour of the lab.”
“Of course,” Jasmine gestured to the playpen in the corner, “May fell asleep not too long ago, would you mind listening for her?”
Prof Oak shook his head smiling as the two women went out the back door and across the field.
Swirls of brown, pale blue, and white covered the room. Ash Ketchum was bored. Laying upside down on the couch, he watched the entertainment center blur as the blood rushed to his head.
“Ash? What are you doing?”
He turned his head to the side and saw a turquoise and orange blur join the others. It couldn’t be anyone but his girlfriend, Misty. They had been friends for a long time, 8 years. They started dating when he was traveling around Sinnoh. Brock casually mentioned to Ash that Misty was going on a date with someone in her hometown of Cerulean City. It freaked Ash out and as soon as they got to the next town he called her demanding to know how her date went. She was coy and teasing, but eventually told him that it was fun but not something she was going to continue.
“I don’t think I like the idea of you dating…” he said softly.
“Why not? It’s not like I’m not old enough to date!” she snapped back.
An arguement ensued as Misty tried to get why he didn't want her to date out of him, with Ash making up one lame excuse after another.
“Maybe I don’t like it because I don’t want you to date anyone but me!” the second the words were out of his mouth they both froze. He wanted nothing more than to hang the phone up and beat himself over the head.
“O-okay…” she said, her voice barely above a whisper.
“What?” he asked.
“Okay…when you get home from Sinnoh….we’ll go out on a date. Until then….I won‘t see anyone…”
“I won’t either.” he smiled, his face a subtle shade of pink.
That’s exactly what happened. They went on their first date and had been inseperable since then. Misty was over at his house practically everyday now that her sister’s battling skills had improved enough that she could trust them to run the gym without her. And he snuck out and spent every night in Cerulean City with her, always making sure that he was back in his own bed before his mom woke up in the morning.
“Where’s my mom?” he asked sitting up. Then he shut his eyes until the dizzy feeling passed from being upside down for so long.
“She said she had some errands to run.” Misty plopped down on the couch next to him. She looked cute, her orange hair was down around her shoulders with the front pinned back. They were having an unusual heat wave, so she was wearing a turquoise bikini top with white board shorts a matching turquoise floral pattern down the sides. Ash himself was just wearing a pair of swim trunks, anything more and he would be sweating to death.
“Gotcha…she’ll probably be gone for awhile.” he looked around the room, “Did she take Mimey with her?”
“Yep…it’s just you and me.”
“and Pikachu.” he added.
She nodded, “But he’s asleep, so it’s still really only us.” they sat in silence for minute before she spoke again, “Why were you laying upside down on the couch?”
“I dunno. I couldn’t think of anything else to do. Not traveling is getting really boring.” he sighed.
“I see what you mean, because being around me couldn’t possibly be enough to keep you wanting to stay.” Misty rolled her eyes and crossed her arms over her chest.
“Aw, come on Mist, don’t be that way. You know I want to hang out with you. But there’s absolutely nothing to do in Pallet Town!”
She sighed, then a small mischievous smile formed on her face, “You’re right…there’s not all that much to do here. But we have the makings of some excitement…”
“No, we don’t…at least not here” he looked at her strangely.
“Of course, what could two teenagers possibly do when they have a good couple hours without parental supervision?” she looked at him out of the corner of her eye.
It only took a couple seconds for him to understand her meaning, and when he did his smile matched hers. He leaned forward kissing her softly. Misty, never the patient one, put her hands behind his neck and deepened the kiss. After a couple minutes, Ash pulled away and cleared his throat, “Maybe we should go upstairs…”
“Why?” she asked.
He swung his gaze to Pikachu sleeping in the corner, “I feel weird making out with you in front of him.”
“Why? It’s just Pikachu…and he’s asleep…”
“I know…but to me, that’s like…”he tried to find the right way to describe it to her, “it’s like Brock is sleeping over there!”
Misty scrunched her nose up as she imagined their older friend in the living room with them. She shuddered slightly, “You’re absolutely right, let’s go upstairs!”
They stood and practically ran up to Ash’s room where they shut the door. “Much better!” he smiled walking toward her and kissing her again. She pulled him slightly leading him towards his bed. They laughed as they toppled over onto it. He pulled her on top of him as she ran her fingers through his hair. He slid her shorts off, slightly dismayed to see that her bikini bottoms were underneath. Misty sat up, her legs still straddling him. She laughed at the disappointed look on Ash’s face.
“What? Did you think I was going comando?” she giggled.
“A guy can hope can’t he?” he chuckled with her. Then he sat up kissing her again. She pushed him back down, laughing, before reaching back and untying her top.
Ash woke up realizing that he was alone. He glanced over at his alarm clock and saw that he had been asleep for a little over an hour. He got up shaking his hair to unstick it from the back of his neck and got dressed. As he passed his bedroom window he saw Misty sitting on the fence that divided his backyard and Prof Oak’s talking to Gary. He jogged down the stairs, noting that his mom still hadn’t returned, and out to his friends.
“It’s a lot like being friends…except with more tongue.” Misty was saying as he walked up. His face turned red as he realized they were talking about him.
“Misty! Stop!” he waved his arm in her direction. Causing both Gary and Misty to laugh. Ash looked over at Gary. In the heat, he was also only wearing a pair of shorts, but he was also wearing his white lab coat.
“Why are you still wearing your coat? Aren’t you boiling in that?’ he asked pushing himself up onto the fence next to Misty.
Gary brushed back his brown hair which was damp with sweat, “Yeah, but I feel a little lame without it. I am a pokemon researcher, I have to look the part.” they all laughed.
They looked up to see his mom jogging out the back door towards him. She was really young, for having an 18 year old son. Her reddish brown hair was pulled up on in a high ponytail and her brown eyes were sparkling with excitement. “You got a letter!”
Ash stood up and met her partway taking the letter from her hand and ripping open the envelope. His eyes scanned the message as a wide smile appeared across his face.
“Well…looks like this summer isn’t going to be as boring as I thought!”
