So this is my first Fan Fic. I really hope you guys like it. I've decided to post both the intro and the first chapter since the two of them are very different from each other. Any reviewer can post here. Comments from people who aren't reviewers are also welcomed. Enjoy!
Towards The End (and Love) [PG-13]Rated PG-13 for some language, sexual innuendo, violence, and disturbing images and situations.
Chu-Chung! Chu-Chung! SCREEEEEEECCHHH!!!!!!!! WOOSHH!!!!!
The sounds of the metallic building being ripped apart could be easily heard even outside the large and intimidating structure . Hundreds of frightened people were forced to stay behind the caution tape that surrounded the towering, metal beast. Mothers were screaming in horror as they saw large chunks of it fall from such a high height; for fear that their loved ones that had gone into the metal death trap or worked in it, were misfortunate enough to be inside the falling metal chunk. However, some mothers were shouting with joy as they saw their child being brought down by professional Pokemon Trainers.
The police had called in some of these trainers since there were so many policemen that had been scattered across the Sinnoh region. It was very rare that the policemen would have to request these trainers, but today was not an ordinary day. These trainers were being requested around the whole region because of similar disasters to the collapsing building. They were happening all around the region, but the strangest part about it was that they all seemed to start at the same time. However, this was never proven.
One of the Pokemon trainers stumbled down the steps at the entrance, holding a crying child in his hands. This trainer had large, deep, black wounds across his face. One very noticeable wound was a large and wide scrape that was clearly swept across the man’s right cheek. Already, the white nerves were coming together as thin, white threads in order to close up the wound. Black muscle was oozing out of the wound. Several people gasped at the disgusting sight, and the women had their hands covered over their mouths as they saw it. The brave trainer didn’t notice the wound until later. Though, he wouldn’t care when he would see it.
“Sir, we have evacuated all of the children from the building,” said one of the policemen.
“Very good. Alright men! Let’s clear it out!” said the chief policeman.
“NO!!!!!” It was one of the mothers that had let out the cry. “My son is still up there!”
“Ma’am, I assure you, everyone has been evacuated. I am going to have to ask you to leave,” said the chief.
“You think I wouldn’t know that my son is still up there?? I am his mother, damnit! I know he is up there!!” This mother was obviously not going to give up so easily. She would have to fight in order to save her own child.
“Alright men! Let’s go! Move it!” said the Chief, who obviously ignored the mother’s cry.
“No! Stop! He is still up there!”shouted the mother.
A different trainer had overheard the conversation and decided that he needed to check to see if anyone was still in the building.
“Alright Alakazam,” he said calmly as he released it from its pokeball, “I need you to search that building for any survivors.”
The Alakazam nodded and searched the structure with its psychic powers. The telekinetic Pokemon jumped startled. It told his trainer that there was still something up there. The woman and the chief continued screaming at each other. The trainer had about enough of their bickering and broke the conversation.
“Chief! She’s right! There is still somebody up there!”
“How do you know?” he responded.
“My Alakazam saw it. There isn’t just one, but two of them! One of them is a trainer!”
“So? Maybe your Alakazam is wrong. Ever thought about that?” the Chief asked. He no longer cared who survived or died. The Chief had been here all day, but so had the others that were on duty. They never complained. So why should the Chief, of all people, complain? If this man had a conscious, he would have cared more.
“I know he is right, sir,” the trainer responded.
The chief sighed, “Very well. Men! Do not leave! We still have others that need to be evactuated. All officers standby!”
The building continued to collapse, and the awful shrieks and cries were released from worried people’s mouths. There was another trainer, one of the more elite ones, that was still in the dying, man-made skyscraper. There was a trapped baby underneath some sharp metal that was drenched in its own blood. It did not shock the trainer though. He had seen a lot of things far worse than this.
“Alright Charizard, I need you to melt that metal WITHOUT hurting that baby! Go!”
The Charizard puffed out its chest and released a white-hot flamethrower on the metal. The Charizard did not injure the baby, fortunately.
“Charizard, Let’s keep moving.”
And on that note, the daring trainer picked up the baby and sprinted out of what was left of the building. The mother wept with joy as she saw her baby being carried out. Immediately, the trainer ran to the ambulance and asked the doctors what they could do.. The mother was given the news that her baby would have to be taken to the hospital right away, but was assured that her baby would be ok. The iron beast’s towering reign had now ended as it distorted and crumbled to the ground, releasing a large cluster of dark smoke and dust.
“Alright, now we can move out. Let’s go men!” the chief commanded.
One by one, each of the police cars left, as did the trainer’s. However, the trainer with the Charizard, and the one with the Alakazam, stayed behind and chatted.
“Do you know what happened?” asked the trainer with the Charizard.
“I don’t know, I just received a call that there was a building that was suddenly collapsing. They gave us no report as to what exactly caused it.”
“Do you think anyone knows what happened?”
“With every situation that has a mysterious cause like this one, there is bound to be a group of people or at least one person that knows the true story behind the situation, but honestly, no. I don’t think anyone knows what happened.”
“Well it was just a freak accident, right? I mean, it’s not like it was anything too serious.”
“Every situation has some seriousness, including this one.” He paused for a moment. He sighed and then said, “I don’t know, man. I think there was something behind this.”
“Look, buildings collapse all the time. Well, maybe not all the time, but you get what I mean. Do you really think that somebody caused this on purpose? Better yet, do you think a single person or thing caused this? Come on, man.”
“I don’t know, it just doesn’t seem natural that...”
“You know what?” the other trainer interrupted, “let’s just go and be done with it. It’s all in the past now and everyone else has left. Besides, it’s been a long day and we should probably head back to our homes.”
“You’re probably right. Let’s go.”
The other trainer smiled and walked back. The one with the Alakazam stopped for a second and looked back at the remains of the building and sighed.
“Come on!” Forget about it!” the other trainer was far away so he had to shout to the trainer.
“Right,” the trainer with the Alakazam murmured.
Chapter 1: Shocking News
“Yes!! I got my 8th Sinnoh badge!!!! WOOHOO!!!!!! YEAH!!!!!! POKEMON CHAMPIONSHIP HERE I COME!!!!! BRING IT ON!!!!!! WOOHOO!!!!!
Ethan and Nicole were outside of the gym sitting on a bench with their chins rested on their hands. The one that was cheering for himself was Daniel.
Ethan was not a young man, but he was not a boy. He was 15 years old. He had semi-long light-brown hair, but it wasn’t close to being as long as how a female has her hair, with faint streaks of blonde strands of hair. He was roughly 5'6" and moderately thin. He had hypnotic grey eyes that always surprised people when they saw them for the first time. He wore a black beanie on his head with a red pokeball symbol on the front of it. Ethan always wore a black jacket with a creative symbol on the back of it. He always had the jacket unzipped unless he was forced to zip it up. Underneath the jacket was just a plain grey shirt. He also wore moderately tight jeans. They were not tight enough to be considered skinny jeans. He always wore a silver ring on his ring finger on his right hand.
Nicole was the same age as Ethan, but she was around 4 months older than him. She was also 5'6" and quite thin. She had beautiful, long, straight black hair that reached down to the middle of her back. She had piercing blue eyes that seemed to always be full of delight. She also wore a purple beanie on her head with a pokeball symbol on the front of it. Nicole wore long purple boots. She always wore a sleeveless, pink shirt with a white miniskirt. The skirt was a little bit longer than the average super short miniskirt.
Daniel was about a month older than Ethan. He was 5'8" and moderately thin. He wore an orange collared shirt with short sleeves and khaki pants. He had emerald green eyes with short blonde hair.
Ethan was a Pokemon trainer, and an excellent one too. He had started his journey as a Pokemon trainer when he was 10 years old. He started his journey in the Sinnoh region. He was not a very good trainer when he started. He couldn’t even get one gym badge. He would try over and over again to get a gym badge, but he would always fail. The worst part for Him wasn’t that he had lost so many times, it was that he had no friends to comfort him. He had not yet bonded with his pokemon enough for them to care about how he felt. It was quite sad in the sense of the emotion, and in the sense of it being pathetic, and pathetic in the sense of it being pitiful. So He decided to leave Sinnoh without even getting a single gym badge and headed for Kanto. From Kanto, he went to Johto, then to Hoenn, then to the Kanto Battlefrontier, and then back to Sinnoh. Ethan met his companions in Sinnoh the second time he had come there. He first met Her in Sandgem Town. She had been walking out of Professor Rowan’s lab with a pokeball in her hand. She was the one that came to Him. She asked Him many questions and it seemed to confuse Him as to why She asked Him such specific questions about various Pokemon related things. The conversation after the questions was very long. They had gotten to know quite much about each other within that one conversation. So He invited Her to come with him for the journey. She thought about it for awhile and then finally said yes. He had met Daniel after he had defeated the first gym leader in the Sinnoh region. Daniel was a very hyperactive individual. Despite that, he was very knowledgeable about the world of Pokemon in many of its aspects. Not only that, but he was very knowledgeable about many various things. Daniel could also be a very serious person. When Daniel wasn’t in that serious mood, he was overly optimistic.
“You think he would have been out faster,” Ethan murmured, obviously really bored, as was Nicole.
“Tell me about it, it took us at least 30 minutes for us to get our 8th gym badge,” she said with the same boredom in her voice.
“He was in there for over 3 hours. He’s lucky that we didn’t just walk out on him and leave,” he said.
They both paused and watched as Daniel kept jumping up and down and making a fool out of himself.
“Should we tell him?” asked She.
“We can tell him later once he calms down,” answered He.
“We could just tell him now before he keeps rubbing it in our faces and talks about how he is going to be the Pokemon champion,” she said.
He shrugged, “That works too.”
“YEAH!!!!! LET’S GO!!!! I AM GOING TO WIN THIS!!!!”
“Hey Daniel!” he yelled.
“Hey! I got my 8th gym badge!” said Daniel in excitement.
“Uh... yes, we know,” he responded, “I hate to break it to you Daniel, but the championships were last month. You have to wait a whole 11 months before the new championships tournament begins.”
“Oh...,” Daniel sounded disappointed, “Well, there’s always next year right??” he sounded more hopeful. Daniel was the type of guy that would bounce very quickly from any negative situation.
“Yes, but it took you 3 hours to get your 8th gym badge, and it took Ethan and I 30 minutes,” said Nicole.
“So? That doesn’t mean anything,” said Daniel.
He put his hand on his forehead and ran it down his face, “Actually Daniel, Nicole and I made it to the semi finals and were both defeated in the tournament. Since it took you over 3 hours, I doubt you will even make it into the tournament,” he said.
There was a pause.
“It’s getting kind of late. We should probably get something to eat,” She suggested
“Alright, let’s go,” he said.
When the three of them got to the restaurant, Daniel barked in.
“You know time doesn’t really mean anything in the case of battling.”
She sighed, “Daniel you can’t just...”
“We interrupt this program for some breaking news!”
It was the television. Ethan and co. turned their heads to the left to see the t.v. screen.
“This morning in Veilstone City, a large building collapsed. No source has been found as of yet. Investigators are doing their best to see what caused this disaster to occur. Thankfully, everyone was evacuated out of the building just in time thanks to a highly professional group of Pokemon trainers. What is strange about this happening, is that there were no bombs in the building, and all of the supports of the building were tight and sturdy. One source says that there was one trainer that had a feeling that this was caused by some sort of larger force. That idea was been discarded, as it is improbable. That concludes this breaking news. Now back to your program.”
Ethan and co. turned their heads back. They looked at each other for less than a second. The waiter came by and gave them their food and they ate. After they had finished, Ethan began to speak.
“Don’t you think that is a little strange, though? What if something ‘big’ was responsible for that building’s collapse?”
“The newscaster said that was unlikely. Remember?” Nicole reminded.
“I don’t know, those newscasters don’t know everything,” replied He.
“Think about it though Ethan, buildings fall over usually do to construction malfunctions or whatever,” she said.
“The newscaster said that the investigators said there was nothing wrong,” he said.
“Those newscasters don’t know everything,” Daniel said and then smirked.
“Well we can’t go to Veilstone city and find out for ourselves,” he said as he chuckled half kidding and half not.
“Well, why couldn’t we?” asked Daniel.
“You can’t be serious,” he said.
“We should probably get going now,” suggested She
“Cool, let’s go set up for tonight,” he said.
So the three of them headed down towards the sandy, white beach. Wingulls and Pelippers were flying out into the ocean; going to places of the unknown.
While the three of them were walking on the beach, Nicole shouted enthusiastically, “I cannot wait for tomorrow!”
Ethan chuckled, “Hmhm! Me too. It’s going to be great.”
“Oh, come on! You can be more excited than that!” she said.
He waved his hands in the air, “Ah. Yeah. Woohoo. This is going to kick ***,” he said very dully.
“Fine. Don’t be excited then.”
“I’m excited!” Daniel yelled.
“Daniel, your always excited. If you lose a Pokemon battle your excited,” He said bluntly.
“Well, I’m really excited!” he paused, “and it doesn’t matter if you lose, it only matters if you have fun!”
“Daniel, that is so cliche and you know it,” He said.
“It may be cliche, but it’s true.”
“Well, not to me it isn’t, but if you want to believe that, then do it,” He said.
The two of them started setting up their tent. Daniel was having trouble with setting the poles in between the rings on the tent and putting them in the sand.
“How the hell do you do this?” he said annoyed.
She was working on the other pole, but she went over to help Daniel anyway.
“Here, I got it from here,” she said.
“Woah, woah, woah! What are you doing?” Daniel asked.
“Helping you?” she answered
“Well, I didn’t ask for your help,” he pointed out.
“Yeah, but you definitely need it.”
“Just let me do it,” he said.
Daniel spent a few minutes trying to get the pole in the rings, but somehow the ten fell apart and they all would have to start over. Ethan shook his head and placed his hand on his forehead. Nicole just stared at Daniel with amusement, giving him the ‘I told you so’ look.
Daniel sighed and muttered, “I need help,” he said with a monotone voice.
Nicole just laughed and walked over to help Daniel, “If you just let me help you, this wouldn’t have happened you know,” she pointed out.
“Yeah, yeah, I know.”
Finally! The tent had been set up and they could all go to sleep, but for Ethan, sleep wasn’t going to happen.
