    Ash's POV

    I cannot help it, I couldn't stop it if I tried
    The same old heartbeat, fills the emptiness I have inside
    And I knew that you can't fight love, so I won't complain
    Cuz why would I want to stop the fire that keeps me going on?


    Today is Valentine's Day, the worst holiday in the world. Brock went completely bonkers – worse than usual. Every girl in town got a taste of his desperate, lovesick ways. Even Croagunk couldn't stop him as it usually did. It was, literally, nothing short of a circus sideshow.

    I didn't really mind it. Dawn and I watched the whole thing from a distance, pretending like we didn't even know him. Dawn offered to grab an ice cream with me. What a welcome distraction.

    But what I did mind was the fact that Brock reminded me that Valentine's Day is a day for you and the person you love to spend together.

    Suddenly, my ice cream lost its flavor. I was missing him too much.

    Cuz when there's you, I feel whole
    And there’s no better feeling in the world
    But without you, I'm alone
    And I'd rather be in love... with you




    Gary's POV

    To melt the ends now, to see is to believe
    I just want you near me, I just want you here with me
    And you help everything I’ll need for you
    It's the least that I could do


    Today is Valentine's Day, the best holiday in the world! I'm used to girls swooning over me, and today's the day when bunches of them swoon together. I got all kinds of love letters and phone calls, not to mention offers from all kinds of girls. Grandpa called to say I had more mail at home.

    I didn't really mind it. When you're as famous and handsome as me, you start to get used to it after a while. It's the kind of day that guys like me live for. My research in Sinnoh could stand to take a break for a day, after all.

    But I did mind the fact that, despite the gaggle of gorgeous girls who giggled nervously and flirted with me, Valentine's Day is the day you're supposed to spend with someone special.

    The mountain of chocolate beside me suddenly lost its appeal. I miss him.

    Cuz when there's you, I feel whole
    And there's no better feeling in the world
    But without you, I'm alone
    And I'd rather be in love... with you



    General POV


    And I feel you holding me

    Why are we free to be in love, to be loved?

    I can't explain, I know it's tough to be loved...

    And I feel you holding me...



    With a slight sigh, Gary shoved the pile of chocolates onto the floor, letting the morsels fall where they may. They looked completely unappetizing to him. He couldn't eat them. Besides, he'd get fat if he ate a dozen boxes at a time. He had an image to uphold.

    Elsewhere, Ash promptly tossed his cone into the trash. He couldn't finish eating something that tasted like dirt to him. Dawn looked at him curiously as his chair scraped the asphalt outside the sidewalk ice cream shop. "Come on Dawn, let's go get Brock out of my misery now."

    How could two people be so close, yet so far?

    Cuz when there's you, I feel whole
    And there's no better feeling in the world
    But without you, I'm alone
    And I'd rather be in love...
    Yes, I'd rather be in love...
    Oh I'd rather be in love... with you

    And I feel you holding me...





    OWARI
