    Default Against All Odds (AAML One-shot)

    Against All Odds (AAML One-shot) Rated: U

    Summary: This AAML One-Shot was inspired by a popular song 'Against All Odds' sang by Phil Collins, whose song was then later sang by Mariah Carey and Westlife. This fic describes what Ash and Misty were feeling since their seperation. R&R please! Here we go!

    Note:
    Red: Misty or Mariah Carey
    Blue: Ash or Westlife
    White: Both



    Somewhere, far away in the Hoenn Region, a young teen leaned his back against a tall tree while sitting on the green grass. He was wearing a blue jacket, jeans, multicoloured trainers and an official Hoenn League cap. Napping next to him was a little yellow rodent Pikachu, who was not only a pokemon that the teen was training but was also his best friend. That teen was none other than Ash Ketchum.

    While Pikachu rested next to him, he looked at the bright yellow sun as it began to set in the sky. While he looked at the beautiful sunset, he thought about one person who was beautiful as that.

    How can I just let you walk away, just let you leave without a trace
    When I stand here taking every breath with you, ooh
    You're the only one who really knew me at all


    It was one of his best friends who was travelling with him since day one of his pokemon journey when he ‘borrowed’ her bike in order to save Pikachu from a flock of avenging Spearows. Although Ash thought that she was only following him because the bike he owed her they developed a strong friendship, maybe something more than that.

    Somewhere, in a gym of Cerulean City in Kanto, a girl walked around a swimming pool with her green swimsuit. Normally, she’d have a ponytail at the side of her head but she let her hair down, as she was about to take dive for a swim. This was the same of hairstyle that her friend liked about her. With a depressed look on her face, she dived down into the pool, hoping that it help her soothe her sadness. Water can sometimes make you feel relaxed… sometimes.

    How can you just walk away from me,
    When all I can do is watch you leave
    Cos we've shared the laughter and the pain and even shared the tears
    You're the only one who really knew me at all


    Her name was Misty. She was the youngest of the four Cerulean sisters. At a young age, she left the gym to become a water pokemon master. In the process, she had an encounter with a young child who she would spend a lot of her time following since he broke her bike. Although they had bad times, such as arguing about taking wrong directions, they never let those things separate them as they shared a great and strong bond.

    After she got her bike, she received some news from her sisters that may change her life forever. They were taking a tour around the world, meaning that she had to leave him in order to look after the gym. Despite that he didn’t like the idea of her leaving the group, he knew that she had to because of her upcoming responsibilities. Before she left, she gave him a small napkin hoping that he understood why she gave it to him.

    So take a look at me now, oh there's just an empty space
    And there's nothing left here to remind me,
    Just the memory of your face
    Ooh take a look at me now, well there's just an empty space
    And you coming back to me is against the odds and that's what I've got to face


    There was one occasion that they both met again but in the Hoenn region. After her Togepi, the egg pokemon that Misty greatly cared for since its birth while travelling with her friends, evolved into a stronger pokemon called Togetic, she had to release it so that it can protect the other Togepi from any danger. It was obvious how she felt when a loved one had to leave her.

    A few hours after Togetic left, Misty sat on the grass looking at some stars. It was then Ash came over to her because he knew what Misty was feeling after being departed with a pokemon she treated like it was her own child. After some comforting words between each other, he spotted a small teardrop running down her face and wiped it off. They both noticed how cold the air was and he wrapped his arm around her upper back, keeping her warm for several minutes. The next day, she had to leave her old travelling group to return to her duties as a gym trainer.

    Back at the present in the Cerulean City gym, Misty swam up to the surface of the pool and breathed in some air after holding her breath for a short while being underwater. After she left her friends back in the Hoenn region she felt empty without him and feared that he might fall in love with others.

    I wish I could just make you turn around,
    Turn around and see me cry
    There's so much I need to say to you,
    So many reasons why
    You're the only one who really knew me at all


    A few hours later in the Hoenn Region, it was now night time as Ash and his travelling companions were at a pokemon center. While his friends have a good night sleep, Ash looked out of the window of his room looking at the starry skies, wondering what would be like if she was still travelling with him. Yes, they would be arguing a lot but still…

    He walked back to his bed where Pikachu was sleeping. Trying his best not to disturb his yellow friend, he looked inside his bag and took out the two items that reminded him of his redhead friend as he sat on this soft furniture. One was a photo showing a picture of them sitting at the end of a small boat, smiling happily while winking at the camera while Ash wrapped his arm around Misty’s shoulder. The other was a napkin she gave him. To this day he didn’t understand why she gave him that but he knew that it was something important.

    Ash, being a young man who mainly focuses on pokemon, never knew much about love… maybe less. But there were times when he felt a stronger bond than just friendship when he was around her but when she left, he somehow felt empty; it was like a part of him had left for good. Despite that he had other friends around him, he sometimes felt alone without her.

    So take a look at me now, well there's just an empty space
    And there's nothing left here to remind me, just the memory of your face
    Now take a look at me now, cos there's just an empty space


    Back at the Cerulean City gym, Misty was in her bedroom as she also looked at the stars outside her window. She then looked at the photos, thinking of the adventures she had with her friends. One in particular was the same picture that Ash had, which also reminded her of him. In fact, there were many pictures of them stuck to her wall, along with her other friends.

    She knew that Ash wasn’t knowledgeable when it came to love but there were various times when he made her feel appreciated, loved and completed.

    But to wait for you, is all I can do and that's what I've got to face
    Take a good look at me now, cos I'll still be standing here
    And you coming back to me is against all odds
    It's the chance I've gotta take


    They both had a lot to say and confess to each other – how they feel about each other, their past adventures, and others. But there were obstacles that held them back from saying their confessions as it may affect their friendship they hold dearly.

    They hope that one day, they would cross paths again to say what they had inside their minds and hearts for so long. But the question remained… how long would it be until they see each other again?

    As they thought of that question and the answer to it, at the same time, they looked out of the window to look at the starry skies again thinking about each other and thought of these words…

    Take a look at me now…
    Take a look at me now…

    Aww, one-shots are just soo...I dunno, but I wish it wasn't a one-shot. I don't care much for songs and stuff, but it matched perfectly with the theme of the one-shot. Can't say much more, but oh well. ^^

    MistyMix89: Cheers, mate. I thought that the song would fit this one-shot.

    Mizu_Gal: Well, I wanted my romance/shipping one-shots to be something different from the other shipping fics and love songs gave me the inspiration cos they can reflect on love couples and what situations they are in. Apologies for writing up these one-shots but I got other fics to write up.

    Do I detect a one-shot of "Somewhere Out There" in the works?

    It was beautiful. Personally, I think I'm about to go through the same thing, so I get it.

    Now that you mentioned it, Steve Brookstein is the latest person to sing this song. I'm thinking that other people will also be singing it.

    Short story is, I am in love with someone, but they aren't with me. Sucky part is, I'm in the middle of a fic (see sig), and I've lost all my motivation to write.
