First I'll cover some things about this story...
First the ages are:
Satoshi: 17 (He'll be Kasumi's age in this story)
Takeshi(if he makes an appearance in this story): 23
Secondly, the outfits:
Hikari(At beginning of story when she's still with Cresselia): Short shorts that are black, a pink tank top, with a matching black scarf. For shoes, worn-out purple and black sneakers and also a black color version of her hat in DP.
Hikari(When at Veilstone): Numerous outfits, but mainly denim cut-offs with a black tank-top and violet scarf.
Kasumi(always): Navy blue shorts and a yellow crop top, and a rain/teardrop-shaped necklace.
Shinji(always): Sinnoh clothing
Satoshi: Kanto/Sinnoh clothing
Takeshi: Kanto/Johto clothing
Also in this story they haven't met yet, and 'The Dark One' and 'Chosen One' doesn't even know what each other look like. This story will be mainly told in Kasumi's point of view but also sometimes Hikari's POV and maybe even Shinji's POV
Thirdly, the summary so you understand the story a little better :
Hikari Light was born the 'Chosen One'. Shinji Dusk was born 'The Dark One' Hidden away in Veilstone, Shinji follows. To take over New Moon Island was the plan. Finding love wasn't, but he found it anyway.
Rated T for... Minor Language and because I'm paranoid XD;;

Light And Dark
There was once this princess,
Her birth took place the night of the full moon,
Her birthplace, Full Moon Island,
Cresselia was one to witness her birth
There was once this orphan
Who was born on New Moon Island.
Born the night of the new moon,
Now Darkrai is the only person he looks up to
Five years later
On the nights of the Full Moon,
Cresselia is revealed,
Through the eyes of Hikari Light…
Five years later…
On the nights of the New Moon,
Darkrai is revealed,
Through the actions of Shinji Dusk…
A young five year old girl was alone in the middle of the night, staring up at the millions of stars shining and laughing up above. A full moon glowed brightly in the sky, brighter than any star in the sky. It was pale and had a ghostly glow to it that made the young girl shiver in fright. A crystal clear lake sparkled in the moonlight.
“Hikari…” a soft, mystic voice said.
The young girl’s eyes widened, and she turned around quickly, her midnight blue hair hitting her back. “Wh-who’s there?” she cried out in a small, frightened voice.
“Relax.” the same voice said.
“It’s only me.” Hikari turned around again, her eyes widened at the sight before her.
A swan-like pokemon with a blue body stood before her. Glowing purple rings decorated her sides and backs, and on her head was a yellow ornament that resembled a crescent moon.
“Cre-cresselia?” she asked quietly.
“Yes, it is me Hikari.” the pokemon said.
“Wh-what do you want?” Hikari asked quietly. An anxious shiver ran down her back. She was both excited and scared. Excited for seeing a legendary pokemon with her very own eyes, and afraid that the pokemon may hurt her
“You are the Princess of Full Moon Island. You are also the chosen one, the only one who can protect Full Moon Island from the clutches of darkness.” the pokemon explained.
“Th-the chosen one? The clutches of darkness? Wh-what does that mean?” she asked.
“The darkness of New Moon Island. The island that Darkrai lives on.” Cresselia told her. “He plans to invade this island in the year of when you’ll be turning sixteen. You’re the chosen one, the only one who can save this island and the pokemon on this island.”
“You hold a special kind of power Hikari. I sense good coming from your heart, Hikari. Please, help us.” Cresselia asked kindly.
Hikari stood silent for a few minutes, but finally answered, “I’ll help you.”
“For now on, you’ll be my trainee.” the pokemon told her, smiling from the insides. Suddenly the pokemon touched Hikari, and her body began to melt into her bare skin.
The young girl’s eyes widened, and her mouth was shape in an ‘O’ of surprise. “Wh-what’s happening? Why are you…”
“Relax, Hikari-chan.” The pokemon told her in a soothing, peaceful voice. “This is all part of your training. I have to learn to control your power. I’m the only one who can help you do so, but in order for me to help you, I have to go deep inside of you.”
“But… it’s so painful…” The young girl whispered through sobs. She collapsed to her knees, getting her white nightgown dirty.
“Be strong, Hikari. Be strong…” the pokemon told her.
Hikari howled in pain, as Cresselia finished going into her body. She screamed some more, as her neck began to burn like a roaring fire.
She looked into the crystal clear water of Full Moon’s lake and saw why. There was a tattoo-like mark on her neck. A pale blue heart with a white crescent moon facing west on top of the pale blue heart was just barely visible in her reflection. “Cresselia…” Hikari whispered.
“Did you find the berries?” Reiji, an eleven year old, with a purple ponytail asked.
“Yes, brother.” answered a mini-version of the eleven old.
“Good.” the brother said, taking some berries from his hand.
“What were mom and dad like before they died?” the five-year violet hair child questioned.
“Well, they were… Honestly, I can’t really remember. It was so long ago. I was only six at the time, a year older then you when they died.” Reiji told him, taking a bite out of a Pecha Berry. “They were always smiling, and laughing. It’s really sad thinking about them. It was just too bad that one bad hurricane had to take their lives away from us.”
The five-year old stared at the food in his hands. The boy put them down, walking away. “Huh? Aren’t you hungry, Shinji?”
“No… Not really.” the boy answered. “I’m going to sleep.”
Later into the night…
“Shinji….” a faint, creepy voice called out into the night…
The young boy tossed and turned inside the tent he slept in. He tried to wake up, but something kept him trapped inside the dark pit of evil.
“Shinji….” The voice called out again.
The frightened boy looked all around him, but saw nothing except darkness. “Wh-what?! What do you want?!” He asked shakily.
“Turn around…” the voice ordered.
Shinji did as told, and felt the life get sucked out of him. A black, ghostly creature stood in front of him. The ghostly creature had a small black head, white substance erupting from its head. The white substance covered one of its ice blue eyes. There was a red growth around its neck, and it had an hourglass figure. It appeared to be wearing an old, ripped-cloak.
Shinji’s voice got caught in his throat as he stammered out the pokemon which stood before him. “D-Dar-Darkra-”
“Yes, it’s me… Darkrai, the nightmare pokemon.”
The boy stood shaking, afraid of the ghost pokemon.
“I need you to do me a favor, boy.” The pokemon said, in an almost soothing way.
“I need you to help me, take control of Cresselia’s Island, Full Moon Island.” Darkrai told him. Shinji was too scared to say no. He could hardly even speak to the pokemon!
“What do I have to do?” He asked.
“I’ll take that as a yes.” The pokemon said, one of his black hand touching Shinji’s bare arm.
Shinji shivered and gasped, for Darkrai’s hand was ice cold! Shinji gasped some more as Darkrai’s hand started to absorb into his arm!
“WH-WHAT’S HAPPENING?!” Shinji asked, frightened.
The pokemon chuckled. “Relax, my dear boy. Soon enough you’ll be ready…” ‘To take on Cresselia and her Island goons.’ The pokemon thought inwardly as the last of his body was absorbed into Shinji’s body.
The young boy clenched his teeth in pain, and screamed. After a while the pain subsided. His left shoulder still stung in agony. He touched his shoulder, but pulled back from the fiery pain that greeted him. He glanced at his shoulder through the corner of his eyes, and gasped. A black tattoo-like mark was left behind, it was shaped like two black bones with a black death fire burning in the middle of the two bones. “Darkrai…” the boy whispered.
Suddenly he felt the heaviness around him lift, and he found himself panting and sweating like somebody who just ran ten whole miles, in his bed. “It was all just a dream…” he whispered to himself. He glanced at his shoulder, and saw it was more than a dream. Way more. The tattoo-like mark was still there, the symbol of Darkrai was still visible on his arm.
