It was already quite late in the evening, four young travelers had just set up their camp in the forest. They decided all to go to sleep because it had been a very exhausting day.
After five minutes three of them where already sleeping, but the last one couldn’t.
‘That was one exciting day, don’t you think buddy?’ Asked a raven haired boy his pokemon.
‘Pi-Pikachu!’ The electric mouse nodded.
The pokemon trainer continued: ‘Another badge and another friend for our collection.
We’ve already made a lot of friends on our journeys.’
‘Pika-pika.’ His yellow friend reacted with a sound of joy.
‘We’ve made friends and rivals in almost every place we’ve visited. But ofcourse our very dear friends are the once we traveled with.’
‘Let’s see, so far we’ve got Misty and Tracey, who are now far away from us, and then ofcourse Brock, Max and M-a...
As the boy pronounced the names of his friends he watched them sleep peacefully in their sleeping bags. But when he was about say the last name he felt a funny but warm feeling inside of him. He stopped talking to stare at her; a girl with brown and beautiful blue eyes, softly talking in her own sleep. ‘Bulbasaur.. you’re the best..’
While he watched her, he could only think of how cute she looked in her red sleeping bag, talking in her own sleep. ‘Even in her dreams she only thinks about her pokemon and contests. Her pokemon are her friends too and she’s always caring about them.’ He thought, as a small smile came to his face.
Then looked around him to see if Pikachu was still awake and waiting for him to finish his story, but his first pokemon had already found a soft place to sleep. The electric mouse would normally react when his trainer just stopped talking like this but he must’ve felt it was alright. Pikachu could always tell wether his trainer acted strange out of good or bad feelings. And despite feeling a bit funny and sweaty, most of all Ash felt really good.
After turning his view back to the coordinater, who has stopped talking in her sleep, he looked back at all the great times he had with her. ‘Together we’ve had some though challenges, but we always made it through. Since the day I met her, I never felt scared again. Even when Pikachu was kidnapped I always felt strong because I knew she was by my side.’
‘She’s always optimistic and ready to help someone when help is needed. And although she has a strong personality and she is determend to achieve her goals, she hardly ever has to fight about it.’ Yeah, that’s what he liked about her the most.
After giving her a last glance, Ash himself went to sleep, only to dream about all the adventures that where ahead of him.
