The Dream

They got to the airport. Lucario was stopped at security, but other than that there were no problems. Riley and Lucario walked up to the food court while waiting for their flight. They got in line.

“Is anyone else going to be there?” Riley asked. Andrew had many pokémon, and they occasionally visited. Some chose not to move.

“Not that I know of, Andrew said that Ninetales stops by more often than before, but other than her, no one will be there.” Ninetales was one of the pokémon that didn’t move away.

“Cool, she any good at battling?” Riley knew that he wouldn’t stand a chance against a fire-type such as a ninetales, but he enjoyed trying.

“She is pretty good, the beat Lance, the elite four champion in Kanto for Andrew before the explosion, though I whittled ‘em down.” Lucario enjoyed bragging about himself, though he tried his best not to, he did when an opportunity arose.

They stepped up and gave their orders. “Does he still have the pokéballs?” Riley asked. He had never held one before, he had seen them in pokémarts before, before the disaster, but his parents wouldn’t buy him one.

“Yeah, but he just uses them for decoration now. He released all of his pokémon after he became a mightyena. They are empty.” Lucario explained. Riley tried to think about what it would be like to be inside of one. He guessed that it would be very uncomfortable.

They stepped back with their receipt. “Could you get the food?” Riley asked. Before Lucario could answer, he shoved the receipt into his chest and walked toward Lauren.

Riley sat down next to Lauren at the gate. He put his arms around hers. “I’m looking forward to this month.” He said.

She leaned into him. “Now why would you say that?” She asked playfully.

Lucario walked up with a tray of food before Riley could answer. Riley quickly let go.

Lucario passed out the food and sat across from them. They began eating.
They finished without much conversation. “Lauren, do you-” Lucario started, but he was cut off by the intercom.

“Flight seventeen to Trenton, now boarding at gate seventeen” A female voice said.

They stood up. “That’s us.” Riley said. They walked off to the gate and boarded their flight.

Riley was extremely tired, though he hadn’t realized it. In his dream he walked through a hallway, it looked like something that he would have seen in some sci-fi space movie. It was comfortably cool inside the building. There were pictures of space ships, other planets, and astronauts. He found a window that looked into a laboratory. To his amazement he saw humans! They were all crowded around a computer. None of them seemed to pay him any notice. Next to the computer was a koffing that was crying out inaudibly. He knew he couldn’t have done anything to help it. He kept walking.

He came to a door. On the front, about a foot above him, there was a label that said “Lowes”. He opened it to see what appeared to be a condominium. As he looked around, he saw things that no one would expect in a space station: a television with an old game system hooked up to it, along with a few games and three controllers. There was refrigerator filled with milk, beer, and other things you might expect to find in a family kitchen. In one of the bedrooms, there was a children’s bed with toys sprawled out on the floor.

He walked out, only to find another family condo through the next door. He walked into the kitchen, to find a woman, a human woman, in her late thirties, cooking pasta.

She looked over at Riley. “What the hell!” She had a look of terror in her eyes. She threw a wooden spoon at him, he dodged it.

“What was that for?” Riley asked forcefully. She didn’t answer.

She climbed up on the counter and shrieked. “Get away!” She called.

Riley stepped closer. “Why are you human?” He asked, apparently over the spoon.

She crawled past him, still on the counter. When she was passed him, she ran to the cupboard and pressed a button inside. An alarm went off. He heard it go off far down the hall.

Several people in hazmat suits ran in and grabbed Riley. They walked off with him squeezed tight in their arms.

One of them looked at him and said “Would you like a drink?” Riley woke startled.
He looked around, dazed.  A miltank was standing in front of the food cart. “I’m sorry, what was that?” He asked. He hadn’t forgotten the dream, but he wasn’t going to be rude.

“Would you like a drink?” She repeated.

“Oh, no thank you.” He said.

She looked over to Lauren, who was sitting in the window seat. “and you?”

“I’ll take a water, thank you.” She said. The flight attendant poured the water into a bowl and placed it on Lauren’s tray. She continued on.

Lauren looked over at Riley after taking a few laps of water. “Did you have a nice sleep?” She asked.

Riley wiped his eyes with his claws. “I had this weird dream.” He told her the dream.

“Weird, a colony of humans” She said. She lapped up more of her water, and then looked out of the window.

Riley pulled out a portable game system from his bag and began playing.

Ten Years After: A Pokemon World - The Dream

The fourth installation in my fanfic. Riley and friends board the plane, and Riley has a dream. This dream is relative, but I made it this way so that you could guess why she was scared of him, and why she was human. Don't worry though, you will find out in a future installation.

I really enjoyed writing this, but I can't tell you my excitement about me writing about Andrew, as my bio says, I love wolves, and what would a wolf lover's Pokemon story be without a mightyena?

EDIT: lol, I didn't realize this, but there's some epic foreshadowing in here! See if you can find it, and no, it isn't the actual dream. (I'll give you a virtual cookie if you do. Nothing more, nothing less.)

wow i didn't know pokemon world was part of the Earth or is Trenton a coincidental name for the city?
Pokemon-TF-Fan Featured By Owner Jun 25, 2009  Hobbyist Writer
Notice that I never say Earth. In the show they make tons of references to places on Earth (at the end of the Johto series, Jessie claimed that she didn't know where Antarctica was, but it sounded warm). Trenton just sounds like a nice, normal city.

Pokemon-TF-Fan Featured By Owner Jun 27, 2009  Hobbyist Writer
