*Ah. Hi, I'm Punch. This is my first post as well as my first Pokemon fanfic. Be hard on me, be easy on me, I don't care. I don't want to be like those people who asks people to be easy on them. Say what you honestly think of it. I'll understand ;D*
Chapter 1“Blue, wake up!” –TOK-
“Blue!” –TOK TOK-
“I’M AWAKE!” I yelled.
The yell frightened the Pidgey outside as I stood up to open the window.
“What are you looking at?” I mumbled.
The sun was so bright, but underneath my window I saw a petite girl with long blond hair that shimmered in the wind. I squinted to see Yellow smiling with a pile of rocks next to her.
She smiled as she shouted, “Hurry, Blue! We’re going to be late!”
I yelled back, “Hold on! Let me change!”
Today was Yellow’s birthday and we were meeting up with the others for a daytrip to Cinnabar Island. As I was putting on my light blue top, I heard a recognizable voice intermingling with Yellow’s.
I could hear Red’s conversation with Yellow through the window, “Are we all set to go?”
“Nope, not yet; Blue just woke up!” Yellow replied.
I froze. That voice. Green’s voice… He wasn’t supposed to be here! My mind drifted to last week when Yellow and I planned this whole trip…
I had told Yellow that we should do something for her birthday and she had suggested a trip.
“That’s a wonderful idea!” I told her.
“Hmm… to Cinnabar! It’s been a while since I’ve see Blaine.” Yellow replied.
“Excellent, who do you want to invite?”
“Well, Ruby and Sapphire told me earlier this week how they would be going to Hoenn for Ruby’s Pokémon Contests, Crystal’s busy with her work, and Gold and Emerald are out playing pool in Johto… So I guess it will be you, me, Red, and Silver!”
“What happened to Green” I asked anxiously.
“He’s back to the gym and catching up on the challenges that piled up when he was gone.”
Green, Viridian City’s Gym Leader and the grandson of Professor Samuel Oak. He had saved me once or twice in the past, but we haven’t engaged in a normal conversation. Red would tell me stories about Green’s behavior before he matured. How obnoxious and arrogant he was. And he’s always so serious and awkward! Always calling me a “pesky girl” It’s not like I have anything against him, it’s just that I would NEVER get along with him.
I snapped out of the memory and went to the window. “Yellow! Can you help me with something?” I hollered.
“Sure! Wait here guys!”
I turned from the window when, “Blue?” It was Green.
He looked up at me with his dark, green eyes. His hands were in his pocket and his necklace gleamed in the sun. “Do you not know how to put on a shirt?”
I looked down to see that my top had not been pulled down all the way. I could feel myself blush as I quickly shut the window.
I sighed as I saw Yellow on my bed.
She smiled. “Hiya!”
“Yellow… didn’t you tell me that Green was busy with the gym?” I asked, frustrated.
“Well, yeah! But then he defeated all the challengers within a week and he said he was free today! That’s… not a problem is it?”
I heard the uneasiness in her voice.
“No, no problem at all! Okay I’m all set, let’s just get the food and go.”
Holding a basket of food, I waved to my mom, “Bye mom!”
“Goodbye honey! Have fun!”
We were just out the door when Yellow grabbed the basket from my hands and ran to the boys.
Yellow laughed, “Red! Hold this!”
“Wha-? Oh sure!” He smiled and blushed.
They were so cute. It wasn’t hard to imagine them getting together.
I walked to them as I caught Green’s eyes. He just silently stared back. Holy ****, holy ****, holy ****! I blushed as I turned away from him. Get a hold of yourself, Blue! Ugh.
“Okay we’re on our way!” Yellow giggled. She took out a Pokéball, “Butterfree!” Her Butterfree flew around our heads, happy to be out of its ball.
Red smiled as he took out his Aerodactyl. Yellow just grinned as she watched them run around. I just gawked. As Green was petting his Charizard, I realized that Red’s and Yellow’s Pokémon were for solo flights. I looked at Green and it seemed that he had just realized it himself. He glanced at me and sighed.
“Alright, all set? Blue, you’ll have to ride with Green. Is that okay with you Green?” Yellow asked, “Oops, we’re late! I told Silver that we would meet him at one. Let’s go!”
I saw Yellow and Red take off. I slowly turned to Green with disbelief.
“… Pesky girl.” Green sighed. He got on Charizard and asked with impatience, “Are you getting on?”
Unwillingly, I climbed behind Green when he whispered, “Hold on tight.”
I barely managed to reply when Charizard suddenly took off. My arms automatically went around his waist. My cheeks were burning and the strong wind made me squint. I put my head on his back and I felt his body turn.
… Did he just smirk?
