(Note: If you want, you can call me Michael instead of Elite Arbiter. I mean, hey, we’re all friends here, right? And that is my real name, just so you know.)
I bet you remember the last chap, when they saw that Brendan was helping Malek. Who could forget? Anyway, here are some of the last few words from the 4th chap *ahem*: “Let’s just go back to the house; it’s getting near 10:00. We should get some sleep.” -said by Ash. And here’s the 5th chap:
Welcome back to the Den of Darkness… It’s me, EA, here with another chap. *laughing maniacally*
Michael, I told you not to laugh maniacally. You’ll hurt your throat!
Aw, mom! You ruined my moment! *clears throat* Sorry for the unwanted interruption… XD
Chapter 5: Misty’s Return
Hmm… What could that mean? XD
Note 2: This will be a bit shorter than the rest, but I’ll make up for it in the next Chap.
As Ash and May headed back to the house, they had no idea of the visitor they were going to get tomorrow. They could only think about when and where Malek would show up next. Ash yawned.
“Ahh… Man I’m tired. I really need to get some sleep.” He yawned. again. “What about you, May?”
“Nah. I think that I’ll help my mom with the dinner.”
“Okay. Well then… ‘Night May. See ya tomorrow.”
“Goodnight Ash.” Secretly, May blew him a kiss as she shut the door.
The next morning, when Ash woke up and went into the kitchen, he saw everyone waiting for him.
“What are you all looking at me for? I didn’t do anything… Did I?” He asked with a confused look on his face.
“We’re waiting to slap you across the face for waking up so late!” May and Max answered.
“But it’s only… Hey! You don’t have to be sarcastic, ya know!” Ash exclaimed as he looked at the clock on the wall. “It’s only 7:30!”
“I know that.” Caroline said, “But you should want to wake up earlier for your presents!” She pointed to the tall evergreen tree in the living room that had millions of presents under it. Some big, some small, some round, some straight, some colorful and some dark. Ash gasped.
“That’s a lot of presents!” he said, staring. “Are any of ‘em for me?”
Norman, as if waking up from being hypnotized, answered out of nowhere. “Well, we knew you might’ve ended up here, so we got you a few gifts. But it wasn’t just us; I think May got a couple for you.” Just then, the doorbell rang. “Huh? I wonder who that could be, especially on Christmas morning. Ash, could you get that?”
“Sure.” He opened the door, and got a big surprise. “Misty?! What are you doing here?”
“Didn’t Caroline tell you? I’m celebrating Christmas with you! I can’t believe you didn’t remember. My sisters are still on the vacation and no one else is there. So I came all the way here.” Misty explained. When May saw Misty, she got a little angry.
“What’s she doing here?” May asked. “I mean, Merry Christmas, Misty!” She added when Caroline shot her a dirty look. ‘Ho. Ho. Ho.’ she thought, sarcastically.
Max was getting impatient. “Presents, now!!! I want presents, now!”
“Hmm… good idea, Max.” Ash commented, “Maybe it’ll break this fight up…”
So, as it was said, every one started opening presents one by one. Ash picked up a round one that said: “To: Ash, From: May. NOTE: Open outside!” So when he read it, Ash and May went outside and opened it.
“A poke ball? Why did you say to open it outside then?” Ash questioned.
“Look inside…” May answered. “You’ll get a very big surprise!” Ash threw it out, making his jaw drop wide open as he saw a blue figure dash by, like a Scyther running through the tall grass, and heard a roaring sound echoing through the town, making snow fall off the rooftops, even startling some of the residents.
“A… A… Suicune? HOW DID YOU GET A SUICUNE?!” He yelled, “AND WHERE DID YOU GET A SUICUNE?! He calmed down, “But I like it, thanks.”
“I knew you’d like it, you can’t resist catching wild Pokemon, so I thought getting a legendary would be much more valuable to you.” May explained.
“Yeah, and it’ll help us against Malek too!” Ash added.
May had an angry look on her face just now. “Is that all you care about? Defeating Malek is more important?” She suddenly started to cry. “I got you this incredible present; a majestic Suicune, and all you’re going to use it for is a pointless battle that no one will win? I hate to see beautiful things—she patted Suicune on the head and it growled affectionately-- used in war! You’ll destroy the world trying! Don’t you get it?! I can’t stand to see you get hurt anymore!”
“May, calm down…. Don’t cry, okay? That’s not all I care about. The truth is…. I care about you much more than anything else May. And I really mean it…” Ash said.
“You mean................” May started,
“Yes… I love you May, and nothing can ever change that….” Ash finished. Little did they know, Max was videotaping the entire thing.
“Oh this is good….” He thought to himself, “I can’t wait to show this to Mom!”
May felt she had to say something too. She took a deep breath, and said “Ash, I… What I’m trying to say is… Well… I mean… I love you too, Ash. I didn’t think you’d feel the same. But now I know…” She said. Apparently, she was a bit nervous. “Thank you.”
I wish I was as lucky as Ash. I’ll never have a girlfriend… Ignore that last sentence! Ash got a Suicune. Surprised? Probably not… But if you think this chap was cool, check out the next one: A Common Foe! Any advice? Give to the needy! XD All opinions accepted, and btw, what do you think of the chap names so far; like on a scale of 1-10 on how they go with the chapters?
Off topic: Who got the new Ace Combat game? I have it and I love it!
