Love at Second Sight [Milkshipping]
Approved Rating: PG-13
It was a clear, cool, and sunny mid-June morning in the woods south of Goldenrod. Ash, who was training for continental tourney, was traveling through Johto for the second time. He was wearing very light clothes, (not much if you ask) which included blue tank tops, black shorts, and bare feet, in which his soles had turned black for not wearing any shoes for the past several days.
At around 10, he slipped on a pair of “massage slides” that he had been carrying throughout his journey. He headed towards the shore to wash his feet, which he had a hard time with as he had grown calluses on the bottoms of his feet, and then headed towards the peak of the hill where he and the group he had been with who had all split some time ago found reason to celebrate.
Ash headed down the hill towards the city limits. By the time he entered, it had heated to about 26°C, just before 11. His Pokémon were all tired out from the several days of battling, so he needed to get to the Pokémon Center as soon as he could.
When he entered the Pokémon center, he saw a familiar face.
“Ash!” shouted Whitney as soon as she saw him.
“Haven’t seen you in years!”
“Hi Whitney!” Ash replied, as Whitney came over to hug him.
“So how’s things at the gym?” asked Ash.
“uuuhhhhh… I better talk about that later.” Whitney answered in a mood swing.
Ash had all his Pokémon healed, and then exited the Pokémon center with Whitney.
“What did you want to tell me?” Ash said to Whitney.
With reluctance, Whitney spoke up. “uuhhhh… I’ve been booted out as leader.”
“Why?” asked a shocked Ash.
Whitney grabbed Ash’s arm and took him to a wooded area.
“You see, officials at the Johto League recently decided that they no longer needed me as Gym Leader for the Plain Badge. Nasty people.” Whitney said softly to Ash. “It wasn’t just me that got kicked out. Gym leaders at Ecruteak and Blackthorn were also thrown out.” Whitney continued. “It was part of the league officials’ plan to get rid of their so-called opposition leaders.”
“Awww. I’m so sorry that had to happen,” cried Ash.
“Me too. It’s things we all have to go through” Whitney replied as she grabbed Ash’s hands, making him blush. Tears began to flow in her eyes, so she laid her head on Ash’s chest and began to weep.
“It’ll be alright, It’ll be alright” Ash lamented, trying to calm Whitney down.
After a few minutes, Whitney asked, “What brings you here?”
Ash replied, “I’m… or I was… training for the continental tourney”
“I’m just startin’ my own journey like regular trainers do” Whitney said back. “now that I’ve been booted out of the gym,” she continued sadly.
Ash began to shy away towards the beach, and Whitney followed. “Where are we going?” she asked.
“I wanna go to the beach and have some fun,” Ash said happily.
“Allright!” Whitney said with obvious cheer.
They both separated to change quite some distance away.
When they rejoined, Ash pulled a bottle of sunscreen from his backpack.
“Hey, rub some on my back would cha?” Whitney asked.
After Ash rubbed the sunscreen on as much of his body as he could, he began rubbing some on Whitney’s back. Whitney smiled as she felt Ash’s hands rub against her skin.
“Let’s go!” both shouted as they headed towards the shore.
Ash borrowed a surfboard, and Whitney laid in the sand to sunbathe. Next, they were playing Frisbee and beachball. They even buried each other in the sand.
Later, clouds rolled in, and they left to change back into their normal clothes, and went inside a nearby diner to stay dry and to have dinner. There, after the two filled their orders, Ash found a perfect opportunity to start a semi-intimate conversation with Whitney.
“You know, it seems funny knowing that you’re no longer gym leader,” Ash said to Whitney
“It seems odd knowing that you came back to this area,” Whitney said in response. “By the way, what happened to your Pika?”
“Team Rocket took it away… recently,” Ash cried softly.
“Aww, I’m sorry to hear that.” Whitney said, looking to cheer Ash up.
Ash then told the big story. “When we were heading towards Azalea, Pikachu was grabbed by a net coming from their Meowth balloon, and they used water guns, bolts, even illegal tazers to stop me. I was zapped real good, but recovered rather quickly. Next thing I know, they cut off my path of travel by cutting all the wires of a nearby electric transmission line. The only way for me to get across was to go all the way to the next tower where the wires were safely overhead. Unfortunately, there was no way for me to catch up with them. I reported it to the nearest police post. Their severing of the transmission line was not only dangerous, but thousands were of course left without power, but now that’s been taken care of, even though Team Rocket has not been apprehended.”
Changing the subject, Ash noticed that Whitney had shining pink earrings. “Those are the most beautiful earrings I’ve seen” he blushed.
“Thanks. I got them as my last birthday present” Whitney replied.
They were served after their conversation was finished. After the two finished their dinner, Whitney paid the bill for both, by the time they left, it had cleared up, and it was less than three hours from sunset.
They went out into the forest to train their Pokémon. The two even had a battle using Whitney’s Nidorina, and Ash’s Golbat. Ash won, but Whitney didn’t cry this time.
Once the battle was over, they began to find a camping spot for the night.
Before they chose their place to camp out for the night, Ash wanted to admit something to Whitney.
“There’s something I need to say, but you might hate me for it,” Ash told Whitney with high reluctance and fear.
“What is it? I won’t get angry” Whitney encouraged sweetly.
“I…. I … I … l… I love you.” Ash stammered
“Aw, I’ve been waiting to hear that forever, sweetheart.” Whitney said with tears of joy. She moved her lips towards his and gave him a soft kiss on his lips.
Ash returned a bigger kiss to Whitney, making her blush. They gave each other a big hug, holding on for what seemed like forever.
They eventually moved over side by side, Whitney put her arm around Ash’s neck; in return, he put his hand on Whitney’s back and rubbed it, which resulted in her blushing.
“That feels so good...” Whitney muttered to herself in a whisper.
They faced the sunset, occasionally pecking one another on the cheeks.
Eventually, they set up camp for the night, right next to each other. Whitney sung Ash to sleep, and continued to until she fell asleep herself.
