Yay, I'm done, I'm finally done, the next Chapter is out!
Wait, why wasn't anybody posting? How mean, nobody was posting. Buwaaaaa! Oh, well I'll just start then.
Going for it all
„Mas, Masquerain! “
„Beautifly, beau! “
The two Insect Pokémon where dancing happily together, not noticing the danger that came from Ursaring. For a while (what seemed like forever) Ursaring, May, Drew and Misty held still .Drew was unable to fight with Misty on his back, and Misty possessed only Waterpokemon which weren’t much use on Land. Then Ursaring made a move. It opened its mouth to shoot a hyper beam. All three stared at the huge bear which would destroy them any minute. Finally May snapped
„Pikachu, use Thunder! “May screamed and Pikachu obeyed immediately.
Ursaring stopped its attack and screamed in pain but managed to wear off the attack. Now it seemed really angry. May gritted her teeth, also getting pis*ed because she hardly ever got a chance to rest on this cursed day.
„I’m out of here, “June squeaked and hopped on her bike.
„Wait for meeeee! “ Brock yelled and tried his best to follow June.
Cynthia also started running, but a few thoughts crossed her mind. All of these Pokémon where pretty powerful. They probably all had a territory and that meant, they should have started fighting as soon as they met. But they weren’t, and that was more than odd. Something must have happened, but what? What could be important enough to let those Pokémon meet without fighting? Or have they just met and where about to fight? Whatever it was, Cynthia should get out of reach for them too.
Ash knew he was in trouble. Giovanni wasn’t the leader of such a big and dangerous organization for nothing. And from everything Ash had heard, he doubted that Giovanni would hesitate to hurt or maybe even kill him. He really wished Pikachu would be here right now. This was the first time Ash noticed how much he relied on Pikachu. Pikachu was always with him because it wanted to, but Ash was with Pikachu because he would be lost without it.
„Well, well, who do we have here? “ Giovanni said, „The little twerp who had ruined the plans of my loyal helpers.“
Ash hated him. He has never seen Giovanni in Person. He didn’t know who he was, but alone from hearing his voice, Ash knew that he hated him.
„I heard that Pikachu of yours is amazing, “Giovanni went on talking, „Where is it? And where are all you’re other Pokémon? I would like to take them with me. You’re coming too, of course. As long as nobody knows what is going on, we cannot allow any witnesses. “
„So it was you after all“ Ash said.
His heart was beating fast; too fast for Ash to stay calm. Fear was overwhelming him. He gritted his teeth. No, he couldn’t show how frightened he really was. If Ash loses now, there will be no hope for the girl.
Suddenly, Ash’s fear vanished. Thinking about the girl Giovanni was after, Ash felt new courage.
„You are causing all this damage. And only because of a little girl. What do you want from her anyway? “
„This girl is something very special. With her on our side, we will be unstoppable. “
„As you can see, she doesn’t want to, so just leave her alone. “
„And why should I? I have always gotten what I wanted. And you will not be a hindrance. “
With these words, Ash froze again. Giovanni went towards the girl and Ash couldn’t move. He cursed himself for being such a coward, but as long as he didn’t have his Pikachu, he felt absolutely powerless. Giovanni now reached after the girl. As Ash saw this, his fear vanished again and was replaced with hatred. He didn’t want Giovanni to touch this innocent girl with his dirty hands, but just as he wanted to stop him, a powerful hyper beam hit Giovanni. Suddenly five large Pokémon where standing next to Ash: An Onix, a Blaziken, a Venusaur and two Pokémon Ash couldn’t identify.
One looked like an ice bear. It was walking on all four feet and its head had something like an armor of blue metal which was double as long as the head itself. It went from its nose till the end of its head, where a diamond was sitting. There it parted. Around its breast was also an armor of blue metal. It covered him from the breast past the tail approximately six inches. The fur of his pranks up to the knees was also blue.
The other Pokémon seemed to be a mix between a Blaziken and a Girafarig and was about 8, 5 feet tall. Its legs, which where twice as long as it’s torso, were brown, and the rest of its body yellow. The arms went to the hips and instead of hands, it had hooves. Its neck was as long as its legs and its head looked like a human head. Its eyes were almost closed and at the end of its tail was a little ball with a face on it. The eyes of this face where closed. It had two horns on its each one of its heads and it‘s real forehead had a white Star.
All five Pokémon seemed quite angry.
„Blaziken, use fire spin to make a wall. Pikachu, use Thunderbolt to help Blaziken! “ May ordered the two Pokémon.
Ursaring stepped back, searching for a way to get through. As soon as May was sure it wouldn’t find one, she turned to Misty and Drew.
„Drew, you must be exhausted from carrying Misty. Let me help.” she said and helped Misty glide down from Drew’s back, (much to Drew’s relief).
Mist wrapped one arm around May’s neck and one around Drew’s. While Blaziken and Pikachu held off Ursaring, May, Drew and Misty tried to get away. After a while, Ursaring gave up.
„Come back Blaziken! “ May called and Blaziken vanished into his Poke ball.
Pikachu hurried to catch up and climbed on Misty’s head so that it wouldn‘t have to walk.
All three hurried into the forest. As she reached the forest, June jumped of her bike and ran into the it. Brock followed with a little distance and Cynthia, who was still curious about what was going on, was last. As Brock and Cynthia had finally reached June, they found her sitting on the ground, together with three other people.
„May, Misty, Drew! What are you doing here? And Pikachu too! “Brock called out happily when he noticed who the other three people where.
„Trying to find a way out. “Misty replied, also happy to see the Brock and Cynthia alive.
„Pika, pikaa,“ Pikachu cried and jumped on Brocks shoulder.
„What? May and Drew? The two top coordinators?“ June asked with big eyes.
„I don’t think you can call us top coordinators quite yet, right Drew? “ May replied blushing a little.
„What goes for you doesn’t necessarily go for me. “ Drew only said.
„What is that supposed to mean, mister? “
„It means, that only because you’re not a top coordinator doesn’t mean that I’m not one. “
„Oh, please. I’ve been beating you at the grand festival in Kanto and a few times in Jotho! “
The two of them went on a while, before Misty suddenly screamed: „Would you two stop flirting, PLEASE? “
„WHERE NOT FLIRTING! “ Drew and Misty yelled in unison.
„Anyhow, how did you two survived the fall? “ Brock asked out of nowhere.
„I fell into a river near here and a few Amsell pulled me out. I think they left when we were fighting that Ursaring, “May answered.
„You mean you were the one that was fighting. Anyhow, I guess I was just lucky. The trees and ranks slowed down my fall a bit, but I still got injured. “Misty answered.
Then it was Drew’s turn: „Masquerain popped out of its poke ball and saved me. “
That is when May finally noticed: „Oh my god, Drew! Masquerain and Beautifly are gone! “
Ash was out of breath, but kept on running. He had to get away from team Rocket and save that girl. Blood was still tripping from her fingers and Ash could feel the warmth of the girl’s new blood on his naked Arms. In his head he recalled what had just happened.
The five huge Pokémon stared at the girl. Giovanni still didn’t move and all the other team Rocket members were busy looking after him. The heads of the Pokémon moved. Now, they were staring at Ash and Ash looked right into their eyes. For a second, it seemed as if Ash could read the Pokémon’s minds. They wanted him to save her. For some reason, that girl was very important to them and since they knew he didn’t belong to the enemy, they wanted him to take her away from team Rocket. Ash went to his stuff, packed his clothes into his bag and went back to the girl. He pushed his hands under her back and knees and lifted her up. She was light. Very light. She was so light that Ash almost fell backwards as he lifted her. For Ash, it seemed that she hardly weighed anything. He startled for a moment, but then snapped and ran off in the direction he came from. The one thing neither Ash nor Giovanni knew was that these five Pokémon have saved both their lives.
Ash almost reached the forest as two little creatures flew out of it.
„So, Brock, Cynthia, how did you survive the fall? “ May asked.
Drew was probably right when he said she was a scaredy cat because this forest gave her the creeps. She walked very close to him. Also, knowing the others were here as well, helped her to calm down.
„That’s easy. June and her Ursazu saved us by using a water gun to catch our fall. Isn’t that right, June? “Cynthia asked, but when she saw June, who was also walking next to Drew, staring at him with heart-eyes and a smile, she sweat dropped. Drew stared back, trying to figure out what was wrong with this girl.
„A…anything wrong? “He asked.
June opened her mouth to say something.
„Pikaaaa, pika, pi, “Pikachu said instead and June closed her mouth again.
Pikachu jumped off Brocks shoulder, ran in some direction, and disappeared into the forest. A second later, two bugs flew towards them; A blue moth with orange wings and a grey butterfly with huge yellow wings.
„Oh, Beautifly! “ May cried out happily as the butterfly landed on her arm.
„Hey Masquerain, where have you been? “ Drew asked Masquerain as the little moth landed on his head.
„Without those two, I wouldn’t have found you. Yeah, yeah, I missed ya too, Pikachu. “A familiar voice said and everybody turned to look.
„ASH! “ Misty and May cried after they made sure it was really him.
„That’s my name, “he joked, but didn’t seem happy at all, even with Pikachu rubbing against his face, „Listen you guys, team Rocket is behind all this. And I mean the real team Rocket , Giovanni in person and all. They‘re after this girl and they’ll do anything to get her. We have to get out of here, now. “
„What does team Rocket want from a girl? I thought they were after Pokémon, “May asked confused.
„You only know Jessie, James and Meowth. But the real team Rocket is a lot more dangerous. Even more dangerous than team Aqua and Magma together, “Brock explained.
„Yeah, and if we don’t hurry, they’ll get us, “Ash said, „Does anyone know a way out of here? “
„I do. “ June said shyly, still unable to believe that she has met Drew, May, Cynthia AND Ash in one single day.
„Then hurry, we have no time to waist. “ Ash said.
„What happened to her? She looks like she has gone through hell. “Drew asked and pointed at the girl in Ash’s arms.
„Believe me, it was worse than hell, “Ash only said and went on walking.
So everybody followed June who had her bike next to her. May was still walking very close to Drew, but wasn’t as scared anymore since Ash was now here. Brock was following Cynthia with a drooling mouth and heart eyes, and Ash was still carrying the unknown girl, who seemed to not get heavier at all.
It was really weird. This girl wasn’t normal. Ash was sure of that, and not only because team Rocket was after her. This lightness of hers was also not normal.
June seemed to know the area pretty well, because it didn’t take long until they were out of the forest. Everybody was relieved when they finally saw the orange evening sun. They were in a huge flower field which was almost totally surrounded by forest. Only when they looked north, there was no more forest and even more flowers.
„Hello, sun! “ May said and stretched her body.
„I don’t think you will have all too much time to relax. “ A voice came out of nowhere.
„Oh no! Not you again! “Ash whined.
„Well, well, what have my eyes just seen? “
„Some twerps coming out of the forest, I mean! “
„But where here...“
„… working up...“
„…hate and fear. “
„Meowth, now that’s a name. “
„Causing trouble for you is our faith, “
„Taking that girls hope and putting in its place. “
„As long as we can cause chaos, no matter where, “
„we’ll always be there! “
„Team Rocket, who else should it be“Misty yelled angrily.
So this is team Rocket, huh? “They don’t look so though, “June thought out loud.
“Hey, watch what you’re saying, Icy!” Jessie yelled.
“Yeah, don’t dare saying that again or you’ll regret it!” James helped out.
“Pikachu, get ready” Ash ordered the little yellow mouse.
“You’ll regret calling me Icy. Go Ursazu!”
A Panda, about Pikachu’s size came out of its Poke ball. Its dark eyes where sticking out of its light blue fur which surrounded the eye-area, its arms and its legs. Its belly was quite fat and it’s arms and legs were really short compared to its torso which was all white just like its head. It’s ears where pretty small too and stuck out of its head which seemed to be the only organ that fit to its belly. All in all, the little bear seemed really cute, but didn’t look like it was helpful in fighting.
“Stage times everyone,” Drew yelled and Roserade, Masquerain, Absol and Butterfree appeared.
“You go too, Happiny,” and out of its poke ball, came Brocks cute, pink, little egg-like Pokémon.
It seemed to be wearing some sort of pants and had an egg in it. Its cheeks were really red and it had curly veins on its forehead. Its fur seemed to be tied back into a pigtail which reached into the sky. It also seemed very cute, but not helpful in fighting, just like Ursazu.
Come on out, Garchomp” Cynthia also said.
“Ursazu, water gun!”
“Cacnea, come out and use drain punch to shoot back the water gun!” James yelled and threw his Poke ball.
“You too, Seviper. Use poison tail against Thunderbolt” Jessie helped out.
Out of poke ball came a dark-blue, almost black huge snake which looked a little bit like a viper. It had long, red teeth and it’s eyes were golden. All over its body it had golden sparks and on its chest was purple lighting. Half of its tail, which looked like a spear, was red.
A green flash appeared around Cacnea’s arm and hit the water gun, which almost hit May if Drew hadn’t pulled her out of the way. Meanwhile, June’s bike wasn’t so lucky. Pikachu’s thrown back Thunderbolt hit and totally burned it.
“Oh no, my poor bike is totally roasted. Grrr, you’ll pay for this!” June cried.
“Calm down June.” Brock tried to hold her back from doing anything silly.
“You’re totally outnumbered,” Drew said confidently, “there is no way you can win, no matter how strong you are.”
“Oh no Meowth, we ARE totally outnumbered. What do we do now?” James asked with a lot of sarcasm in his voice.
“I don’t know. Do you know what to do, Jessie?” Meowth answered.
“Hmm, let me think. Ohh, I know,” Jessie said and snapped her fingers.
Out of the woods that surrounded them, about forty or even more, team Rocket members appeared. Every single one of them had at least one poke ball in his hand and nobody seemed like he would hesitate to use it.
“Now hand out the girl or else! Yeah, and while were at it, your Pikachu too.” Meowth said sharply.
“Forget it. I’ll never give you that girl and my Pikachu none the less!” Ash answered dangerously quiet and pressed the girl closer to his own body as if he could protect her that way.
He also made sure Pikachu was there. The wounds of the still unknown girl wouldn’t stop bleeding and were now soaking Ash’s clothes. As he felt the warm thick blood on his chest he looked down to the girl and gritted his teeth. He had to get her to a hospital quick otherwise she would lose too much blood. But then again, what should he do? It was forty or maybe fifty against eight and even with Cynthia on their side, this situation was hopeless. Ash gritted his teeth even harder. Just what the heck should he do? At this rate, the poor girl would be with team Rocket again, the ones who had tortured her like this and for Pikachu, it would probably mean goodbye forever.
Suddenly, the girl opened her eyes. But they weren’t green anymore like they used to be. Instead they were glowing blue. Ash felt an aura surrounding his body. He looked around. The others were trapped in this blue aura too and May, Brock and June had even started floating in the air and calling their Pokémon back. As Ash also felt himself getting pulled up by the air, he looked at the girl again. She was now starting to float on Ash’s arms. As soon as she was in standing position in front of everybody else, facing them, her whole body started glowing from the inside. The flash that came out of it was so bright, that everything went white. Then black….
Ash opened his eyes. Whatever was beneath him, it was soft, but cold. There was something near his nose which smelled very good. With his vision fully returned he got on his knees. As Ash looked up he saw the girl. Her body was surrounded by a blue aura and her eyes also glowed blue. Her leaf dress was flattering and so was her long black hair. Unlike Ash and the others, she was still floating in the air. Slowly, the floating stopped and the girl was standing on her feet. The blue aura around her disappeared and her eyes regained their normal color. Ash looked at her in amazement, but snapped when the girl closed her eyes and collapsed again. He stood up and caught her right before she hit the ground.
The others now started appearing from the flower fields. The first ones to awake were Brock and Cynthia. As Brock saw Cynthia he immediately sat next to her and started flirting with her. Then June awoke, and after that, Misty and Pikachu. Only May and Drew didn’t pop out of the flowers. While Ash stayed put with the unconscious girl in his arms, the others went off looking for May and Drew. It was Brock who had found the two.
“Come here,” he whispered and made a sign to stay quiet.
“Awww, how cute,” June and Misty sighed in unison as they saw the whole scenery.
Drew and May were laying in the grass, fast asleep. May was rubbing her face into Drew’s breast and Drew hid his face in May’s hair. He had his one arm around May and his other arm was used by May as a pillow while Mays hands were grabbed at Drew’s Shirt.
“Those two are such a cute couple, even if they deny that they flirt with each other alot,” Misty whispered quietly.
“What do you think? Should we wake them up?” Cynthia asked Brock, since he knew May quite well.
“I’m not sure if we should, but we don’t have a choice. We have to get to the Pokémon Center as soon as possible.”
“The sun has almost set. I don’t think we’ll make it before nightfall even if we wake ‘em up now.” June figured.
“May, hey May, Drew, wake up.” Brock said softly trying to awaken his two friends.
Drew opened his eyes. He blinked a few times before his eyes fully opened, but still didn’t move. The lovely smell of May’s hair made him numb. As he finally realized the situation he was in, he tried to stand up quickly but got held back by May, who was still sleeping. Drew looked at her softly and chuckled.
“May, it’s time to wake up. Come on.” He tried to wake May up, but she only rubbed her face deeper into his shirt, mumbled something and smiled.
Drew sighed. He knew from Ash that May usually woke up quite early in the morning, but after she fell asleep, nothing could wake her up.
“Let her sleep. I’ll carry her to the Pokémon Center.” Brock offered, but Drew refused.
He insisted on carrying May alone.
“Hey, June, you know the area, pretty well. Where are we?” Misty asked after that little argument was solved.
“We’re close to Holia town. It’s famous for its huge flower fields around the town. “June explained.
“Holia town? Isn’t this where we wanted to go in first place?” Misty asked again.
“It is.” Cynthia simply answered.
“Then I guess you want to go see professor Fochs. She gave me Ursazu just two days ago.”
“Then I guess you are a beginning trainer, aren’t you?” Brock asked.
“Sure am. My goal is to become a top coordinator just like Drew and May and win either Drew’s or Ash’s Heart.”
“Less talking, more walking. Come on June show us the way. I can’t carry May on my back forever, you know.”
“Come on Misty, I’ll carry you.” Brock offered and Misty climbed on Brocks back.
“Ash, let’s go!” Misty yelled from Brocks back and interrupted Ash’s thoughts.
“Coming!” Ash yelled back and lifted up the unknown girl, now starting to get used to her lightness, “Come on Pikachu, let’s go, too.”
As the group finally reached the Pokémon center of Holia town, everybody stormed in, leaving only June and Pikachu behind.
“Oh, beautiful nurse Joak! I … didn’t … get to … say anything …yet.” Misty was pulling Brock’s ears from his back.
“We don’t have time for this now. Flirt another time!” She said.
“Nurse Joy, please, you have to take care of our Pokémon,” June, who just came into the Pokémon center with Pikachu, begged.
“Just one minute, June.” The woman behind the desk said.
Her pink hair was tied into two ponytails, which ends were tied into the hair bands. Her veins where curled so that they wouldn’t fall into her eyes. She was wearing a pink dress and a white medicine coat above that. That was all you could see from behind the desk.
Nurse Joy took a telephone.
“Linda, they’re here.” she said. “Aha… Okay… Yes, I’ll tell them… No need to worry, they’re in good hands here… I’ll do it right now, so I won’t forget… Wait, there’s an injured girl with them. She needs first class medical attention, right now… Chansey? No way, Chansey can’t handle this… But… okay…okay, I get it.” And she hung up.
“Chansey, take care of the girl.” Nurse Joy said and the pink fluffy egg-shaped Pokémon came out of the room behind the desk and obeyed immediately.
Its arms and legs were very short in comparison with its egg-shaped body. It was carrying an egg in its womb and its small tale was shaking with every step, letting the Chansey look even cuter.
“Chansey, Chansey!” It said and pointed at the girl in Ash’s arms and then at the stretcher it had in front of itself.
Ash understood and bedded the girl on the stretcher.
“All of you please go to Professor Foch’s laboratory tomorrow at noon. Now, who’s first?” Nurse Joy smiled.
As soon as the Pokémon problem was handled, everybody went to the rooms they became from Nurse Joy. Pikachu was hopping around Ash, who really appreciated it, since he had learned how much he needed Pikachu. Meanwhile Drew and Brock went to the girl’s room. Brock let Misty slide from his back and asked if she would be okay. As soon as she agreed, he left to go to sleep. Drew stayed. He bedded May on one of the four beds and gently pulled the blanked up to her chin. He smiled as he realized how cute her sleeping face was and again, Drew got the same warm feeling he had every time he thought about seeing May after a long lonely journey. He became once again aware of how much he wanted to protect this cute little innocent girl. He shook his head. Why did he always start thinking about such stuff? He had to snap out of this, damn it. But when Drew looked back at the sleeping girl, his face became soft again. It couldn’t possibly be, could it? That he was …. No, it couldn’t. Drew went out of the room leaving the girls behind, his confused mind filled with thoughts.
So, this was it. I hope some people review this time, since I'm really trying my best with this.
Okay, I know this doesn't look all too shippy rght now, but it will definitly become shippy as soon as the girl wakes up. And this is NOT a contestshipping fic. May and Drew will leave to a own journey soon. A side storie called as long as you're with me. Anyone who wants me to inform you as soon as the first Chapter is out, just tell me. I do absolutely not have a clue if I have told you to much right now, but I hope I didn't
The group finally arrives at the Pokémon Center, but something seems to be wrong with Drew. Or was it May's fault? Profesor Fochs wants to talk. A great Chance for Ash and co. to look at the Almo starter Pokémon. And then there is the still unknown girl. Will she be okay after what team Rocket has done to her? Who is she anyway, and why is team Rocket after her?
Episode four: The unbroken barrier
