This fanfiction is NOT going to fit the title, 'Team Magma and Aqua' in the beginning, but near the end it will.
Anyway, this is probably going to be the first fanfiction I ever wrote that I'm going to finish lol. So enjoy! ^_^ and this fanfic is Rated G
The Rise of Darkrai
"Chimchar," called Alice, looking up at the fire monkey that hopped down and took its place on her arm.
The hot-air balloon basket had only its half left, and Alice was about to take a daring jump to the nearby bridge.
"Alice! I am coming!" yelled the utterly annoying Barren Alberto, who, unfortunately for him, tripped and fell face-first on the ground.
But Alice was too scared to laugh at him. The bridge was coming closer and closer, and that meant she had to jump soon.
"Here goes," she said, jumping off the hot-air balloon's basket.
Unfortunately, she didn't make it.
"CUT!" yelled the director, doing a facepalm, "Alice, when are you EVER going to make that jump?!?"
Getting up from the mattress she fell on, Alice replied, "Well, let's see YOU try to jump off a hot-air balloon on a bridge!"
"But Antonio is going to SAVE YOU!!!!" yelled the director, standing up, "And you never get close enough to the bridge so HE CAN DO THAT!"
"Can we just take a break?" asked Barren Alberto, "I fall face-first every time we redo this scene just to figure out that Alice didn't make the jump."
"Whatever. Sure, fine," the director said five seconds later, throwing his arms out in frustration, "And call in Ash to shoot the new Black and White episode. He's in his trailer with Iris and Cilan."
Barren nodded, and motioned for Lickilicky to follow him.
"Let's go, Lickilicky."
~In Ash's Trailer~
Barren knocked on the door to Ash's trailer.
"The director needs you to shoot a Black and White episode," he yelled.
A few seconds later, Cilan opened the door.
"Ugh. Do we have to right now? Why can't May and Drew do their special first? You know, the episodes where they travel with Harley and Solidad in Johto?"
"You talk to the director about it, then," said Barren, walking away.
Cilan turned to Iris and Ash in the trailer, watching old episodes of Advanced Generation and hogging the popcorn.
"Oh my gosh!" squealed Iris, "I can’t believe I never bothered to watch Advanced Gen before!"
"Hey, guys, I'm going to talk to the director if we can shoot our episode later," said Cilan.
Iris and Ash nodded, still staring at the screen.
The TV screen was showing Drew giving May a red rose.
"Is this for Beautifly?" asked May.
"Yeah, something like that . . ." said Drew, flicking his hair and walking away.
“Reminds me how arrogant Drew was,” mumbled Ash.
But then the phone rang.
“I’ll get it,” Ash said, walking over to the phone.
“ASH!!!!!!!!!!! YOU FINALLY PICK UP NOW, DO YOU?!?!?!?”
Barry’s voice was so loud Ash had to keep the phone at least two feet away from his ear.
“Huh? What are you talking about?”
“I’LL TELL YOU WHAT I’M TALKING ABOUT!!!!!!!” screamed Barry even louder, “THE DIRECTOR TOLD YOU TO RENEW MY CONTRACT FOR SEASON FOURTEEN, AND I TOLD YOU TO MEET ME AT THE NEW PIZZA PLACE FIVE HOURS AGO!!!!!!!”
Now that Barry mentioned it, Ash had a flashback from exactly five hours ago . . .
Barry and Ash were licking ice cream cones, under a tree near the set.
“Hey, Ash,” Barry started to say, “The director asked you to renew my contract for season fourteen.”
“Hmmm? Yeah, sure,” said Ash, who was sucked in ice cream wonderland.
And then Barry kept talking, and Ash kept eating his ice cream, not paying attention to a thing he said . . .
“HELLO?!? ASH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!” yelled Barry, ending the flashback.
“THE PIZZA PLACE ISN’T EVEN A PIZZA PLACE!!! IT’S A COFFEE SHOP!!!!! HOW WOULD YOU LIKE IT IF YOU SPENT FIVE HOURS AT A COFFEE SHOP WITH SOME DUDE TELLING YOU, ‘SIR, THIS IS NOT A PIZZA PLACE,’ ALL THE TIME!!!!! SOMEONE IS GOING TO GET FINED!!!!!!!!”
Ash could hear Barry say, “No offense,” to the waiter, a.k.a. ‘some dude’, standing next to him.
“They’re not going to let Barry go back to that place,” thought Ash.
Ash turned to Cilan and said, “Well, looks like we have an excuse to do the episode later.”
~At the Coffee Shop~
Barry was constantly checking his Poketch.
One minutes passed, two minutes, three minutes . . .
“ARGH!!!! WHEN WILL ASH GET HERE?!?” yelled Barry, not caring if everyone in the coffee shop was staring at him with weird looks.
Just then, the bell above the door rang.
“Sorry I’m late,” said Ash.
“Finally, the weird blonde boy’s friend is here,” mumbled the nearby waiter.
Ash made his way to Barry’s table and sat down, only to receive stares from Barry.
But Barry didn’t let him finish.
“WHAT TOOK YOU SO LONG?!?” he interrupted.
“Well . . . I was watching some Advanced Generation with Iris and Cilan,” Ash said guiltily.
“Oh. You mean the episodes with that girl May and her rival Drew?”
“And ‘her rival Drew’ happens to be sitting next to you,” said a familiar voice.
“Huh?” said Barry, turning his head to the right.
Ash and Barry saw a particular green-haired coordinator.
“How did I not notice?!?” asked Barry.
“It’s because you’re ignorant. Simple,” Drew replied, doing one of his signature hair flicks and standing up to leave.
“Reminds me yet again how arrogant Drew was,” mumbled Ash.
“I heard that,” was the last thing Drew said before he left.
(A/N: The A/N means Author's Notes, and I'll have these after every chapter. Anyway, onto the notes! This chapter is exactly two and half pages on Microsoft Word. And I got the 'renewing the contract' idea from the 'Caption the Pokemon Picture' thread in the Games section.)
