Ruby and I spent his birthday flying six hours home to Johto, wrapped in each other's arms like we should have been the first time we flew. It was quiet and careful, very opposite in comparison to my flight with Cynthia. I kept trying to talk to Ruby and tell him I was sorry that I couldn't get him anything real for his birthday, but he wasn't having it. Ruby was thrilled to be free, now that the shock and disbelief of Sapphire really truly giving up set in, he didn't need anything more.
Well except maybe one thing.
It was two days since the plane flight home, and me and Ruby were determined this time. Under the hot July sun we flew from a hotel room in Mauville to that perfect little lake miles from the city and into the clean mountain air. This was the place I realized I loved Ruby at, the place I got my first nosebleed because of his shirtless body, the first time he ever made me fly or made me surf. This lake was a first for everything between us, and sex was not going to b

Two long days had gone by, suffocating me, picking me up and flinging me around, punching me in the face repeatedly while I suffered in silence wishing that I could pick up the phone and call Ruby again without the fear of him not liking me anymore. Sure he said he wanted me to come to him in Johto, but he could have very well been mistaking. Who was to say that after two days of the horrible truth sinking in, he would still want me to find him?
Either way my weaker demeanor had taken me to the plane, and within the next day I was boarding a six hour flight to Olivine City, clear across the ocean and further than I had ever been before. I was nervous, and slightly nauseous from the turbulence, however I was comforted by the unnatural way they produced such clean air in such a small space. I had it hurtling down at me for the longest time, until the petite woman sitting next to me asked politely if I could put it lower because she was freezing. I couldn't argue, I was also cold

Trying to play fight with a pokemon was a bad choice to begin with… but trying to play fight with an eleven foot snake that’s body was as thick as your head was a whole different mistake.
Serperior, who was normally so high class and gentle and easy going, turned into a thorough killer when she was in battle, and regardless of it being a play fight or not she was still the scariest fucking thing I had ever come face to face with (accept maybe for my own dilemmas).
She was strong, a solid slithering muscle covered in sleek oily skin, glistening under the moon as the starts twinkled and the late summer hat set in. It had been especially hot around Aspertia this last week, and threats about wild fires had come on the news—not a good sign when east on the mainland Unova was suffering from snow flurries.
I hadn’t decided what to do about Team Plasma really… but I decided that if things got worse and I heard anything more about it on the news I would h

Two years later
August twenty ninth—that was the day, though I didn’t even know it at the time, that everything had happened. Two years ago on a this very day Team Plasma had been annihilated, I had almost been killed, and my brother’s lover had been killed in a promising attempt to save me.
As the story goes—and I had been telling myself this story every day for two years now—everything happened for a reason. Rosa had been kidnapped for a short while after falling from a great height in the Plasma ship she tried to raid on her own. She had been fine for the most part, even though the fall made her black out for a while, and her spirit had lasted through the hell she had to pay when she woke up. Her beloved Arcanine had a broken hip bone, broken front paws, and a twisted jaw from hitting it on a railing. He had suffered much more than she intended for him to, but the extent

The pokemon Center?
Hyuu sent me the message after I so easily conquered the ground gym leader, Clay. I just managed to finish this battle which mean I had five badges now—far more than what I imagined I could ever get.
It was crazy to think that my first battle with Roxie had caused me such turmoil. I was so scared of harming my pokemon that I simply didn’t have faith in them, and now I looked down upon Kukui, who was battered but far from broken, and smiled a genuine smile. Things were… going good. For the first time in a while I had to stop and think about just how lucky I was to have things working in my favor.
“You did good Kukui.” I held her ball in my hands. “Do you want to rest here until we get to the Center?”
She shook her head, wiping a smidge of blood from her mouth. I didn’t like walking with her when she was hurt because it made me look like a cruel trainer, but she wasn’t exactly willing to go

“I—I DIDN’T MEAN IT SERPERIOR!” I cried, my stomach in a knot as the waves of the ocean lapped at my feet. I didn’t mean it… I didn’t want him to leave me… I—I couldn’t go on without him by my side. He was my partner.
Broken sobs fell from my chest like rain as Arcanine placed his huge head over my shoulder again—holding onto me as if he knew that I had learned my lesson, and that this was a punishment no one deserved. I ached… all over with regret and pain and… pure shame.
How could I have thought that for so long winning was the only answer? That getting revenge on Team Plasma and stopping this was my ultimate goal? I was foolish… I was downright stupid to think that.
I realized now, with the moon beating down on me from over the ocean, and the black shallow waves rolled in with a mighty roar. The ocean—so dark and so violent…. It was this fear that had me believing that I had

What in the world was going on?
Rosa pushed faster, running—no—sprinting through the crowds with her pokeball in her hand ready to fling into battle at the sight of any Team Plasma members. She was long legged and fast—more so than me who was trailing behind and breathing heavily to keep up. Alec was lithe and skillful in his bounds now that he evolved, and I found it slightly ironic how he was more interested in this fight than I was.
Waves crashed against the docks as people pooled in, silently staring up at the ship standing tall above the shore. A bridge to the land was being guarded by a pair of grunts, though they were unable to hold the line for much longer as both their eyes scanned the crowds coming—it was as if the whole town had flocked to see the event go down.
Team Plasma was being revealed. Again this painful group of rogues from two years ago, were banding together to form something greater—like the ship they sailed their organization

Steam flitted lovingly off the smooth expanse of my skin, smothering the open pours on my body and making me feel utterly loose and surprisingly at ease. The tension from within the hasty hours of the night had passed upon waking and boiling myself beneath the water, trying to remember how a summer rain felt back on Mintonga where the ocean was close enough to warm you no matter how dry you were. Sighing I looked in the fogged mirror, blinking and appreciating the toned figure that had stayed put despite the obvious lack of activity. Surfing was my main source of exercise, but I had never been anything but slender despite that. It was nice to know that wasn’t changing here on the mainland. I flexed inwardly, grunting softly at the muscle under my layer of tanned skin—this was another factor I was pleased about.
My skin, tight, focused, warm and tinted with the dotting of freckles, had not changed since I got here. No lack of summer sun had taken those beloved frec

There were some things in life-- I realized too late--that you just couldn't change. Fate was one of them. Perhaps the most important one.
All my life I had spent growing up a normal, happy child with friends on the street to scuff my knees with and get bandages from their mothers. I had been the wild one of the bunch, always pushing, always trying to fit through a hole too small for me. I wanted the see what was on the other side of the walls that confined me, but it was only television that had allowed me to do so.
I was ten years old when I met Ruby Stone for the first time. He was on a tiny screen in which my mother had to fix the satellite wire to see. It was in black and whitevery outdated for our day and ageand it was the single most amazing thing I had ever seen. Ruby was a rookie handler at the time, fumbling around with his pudgy hands and pudgy poochyena, flushing whenever the judges addressed him. He was bold, even as a child, and I envied that. Not to

We had three days, two if you don't count today being pretty much over, before Ruby's birthday.
I had taken Cynthia's words to heart when she told me that it was a shame Ruby wasn't eighteen yet, and so I had asked him, out of blatant curiosity, only to find that he told me it was July twentieth. Three days away.
Such a simple solution and none of us had even thought about it. It took the simple pity from a stranger to make us realize the opportunity that lay before us. Ruby's freedom was riding on less than seventy two hours, and I understood why Sapphire was so determined to get us to Goldenrod now. If she could get Ruby's paperwork signed by his mother before then, we were screwed, but if we could keep her at bay long enough, there wouldn't be a worry in the world.
This was the first big step we had to take, and sadly it would make or break us depending on if we could indeed pull it off. The second step was what the hell I was going to get Ruby for a gift. Three days away an
