I had always heard that Castelia City was one of the biggest cities in the world. I chuckled a little at that. It was definitely big, but nowhere near as big as Lumiose City from my homeland of Kalos. Still, it was fairly decent in size, and as this was my first trip here to Castelia, it was no surprise I was a bit lost.
You see, I had come to Castelia City in the middle of the Unova region because my girlfriend was here. After everything that happened in the Kalos region, she wanted to start fresh somewhere else. I had spent some time in Kalos helping repair many of the cities and towns that had been damaged during all of the attacks.
It was sometime after she left for Unova that she and I had fully come to the realization that we loved each other. It was over a phone call that involved both of us just sitting and starting at each other that we realized we didn't need to even talk to know what the other was thinking.
"Serena-san!" she had shouted suddenly after we had been silent for almost ten minutes. "I... I love you..."
She was the first to say it, and without even a thought, as though I had been longing to say it for years, I responded back, "I love you, too."
Afterwards, the two of us actually realized what we had said. We were silent for a time longer before finally speaking up again and deciding we would be girlfriends. After that, we just continued to call each other on a regular basis, talking sweet to each other, telling each other how much we loved each other.
But it wasn't enough. I just couldn't keep myself sane without her. She filled my thoughts every moment that we weren't together. I had to see her again, and so, I made the decision to step down from my spot as the Champion of the Kalos Region. Using the money I had earned from that, I bought a ticket to Unova and flew on over.
Shauna was going to be surprised. I told her I had a surprise for her the next time I called her, but I didn't tell her I was going to be coming to Unova to see her. That was the surprise. I wasn't going to call her at all. I was going to go to Unova, find her, and surprise her.
As I wandered around Castelia City, I began to think this might have been a bad idea. I had no way of knowing where in Castelia Shauna even was, and if I called her to find out, it would ruin the surprise. The first thing I did was call up all of the hotels... That was a mistake.
Every hotel told me the same thing, they couldn't tell me who was staying at their hotel as it was a breach of privacy. And when I say I called all of the hotels, I mean it. There were fourteen of them in Castelia City.
Since that was a bust, I started trying to think of all the places Shauna had last mentioned she still wanted to visit before she left Castelia, but sadly, that didn't pan out either. It was starting to get late. I would have to call Shauna soon, and at that point, the whole surprise would be up.
Or so I thought.
As I rounded a corner out of an alleyway, I didn't see the person who was also crossing by the same corner. I slammed into them, and we both fell backwards. "I'm sorry!" I quickly chimed in, then realized who I had bumped into. It was Shauna, and her clothes were an absolute mess.
"S-Serena-san?" Shauna stuttered as she looked at me. "B-but how? Why are you here?"
"Surprise!" I shouted weakly and rubbed the back of my neck. It was then that I noticed that it wasn't only Shauna's clothes that were a mess. When we had collided, Shauna had been carrying some sort of ice cream cone. It had been between her and me when we ran into each other, causing it to smash against both of our clothes.
"I wanted to come see you," I spoke up. "I didn't want to tell you I was coming cause I wanted to surprise you, but I spent all day searching for you." I stood up as I said those words, then helped Shauna up.
Shauna said nothing. She just hugged me tight. I smiled and wrapped my arms around her, pulling her into a deep embrace. We stood there silent for a moment, then finally pulled away. Our clothes stuck to each other from the ice cream.
"Come on, let's go to your room and get us out of these clothes." I took Shauna's hand and she lead me back to her hotel room.
Upon getting into the room, I set my suitcase down on the bed. I then immediately grabbed my shirt and lifted it off. Shauna blushed immediately. I don't think she had expected me to just start stripping right then and there. Of course, I wasn't getting naked. I had a little pink bra and panties on, and they were ice cream free. It did make me glad I had decided to wear my normal black sleeveless shirt with high-waisted red skirt, though. I had originally considered dressing in something sexy, but didn't want to get oggled at during my wandering of Castelia.
I dropped my skirt, then looked up at Shauna. She stared at me, her face deep and red. "We should get you out of those sticky clothes," I spoke up and stepped up behind her. I grabbed the bottom of her shirt and began to lift it up.
"I-I can undress myself, you know?" Shauna stuttered.
"I figured, but you were just standing there." I moved close to her ear and whispered, "I thought I'd be helpful."
I had never seen Shauna go so weak as when I did that. Something in that whisper had enticed her and she slipped down onto the bed, almost like her legs had given out. As I was still holding onto her shirt at the type, she ended up slipping right out of it.
Under her shirt, Shauna had worn a cute, black, lacy bra. I stared at her chest for a long moment as Shauna lied on the bed, her face an even deeper crimson than before. She moved her arms to cover her chest, even if it did no more good than her bra.
Without a word, I dropped to my knees and grabbed her shorts, sliding them down her legs. She wore a cute pair of black panties under her shorts and I smiled as I sat down next to her on the bed. "Isn't this better than wearing ice cream?"
"B-but we're naked," Shauna stuttered.
"We still have our underwear on." I grabbed one of the straps to Shauna's bra and grinned as I snapped it. "See?"
"Hey, that hurt." Shauna quickly sat up as she rubbed her shoulder where the strap had snapped down onto her after I had released it.
"True, but it got your mind off your current lack of clothing, yeah?" I kissed her on the cheek.
Shauna turned away sheepishly with a blush. "T-true."
I moved around behind Shauna and began to unfasten her pigtails. Grabbing up a brush, I began brushing her hair. The soft movement of the hair brusher brought with it a calming sensation as well as a sense of intimacy. Before we had started dating, me and Shauna had enjoyed brushing each other's hair. It was probably because we were madly in love even then, we just hadn't yet admitted it.
With each stroke, I could sense Shauna growing calmer. Soon, she had completely relaxed, perhaps even too much as she fell back into my chest with her eyes closed. I giggled and kissed her gently on the forehead. Shauna opened her eyes and looked up at me. She moved herself a little closer, gently putting her lips against mine. We kissed for a moment before she returned to her state up against my chest. I didn't move at all for almost an hour as I continued to hold her in her sleepy state.
After that, I decided it was probably good for me to sleep as well. I carefully lied Shauna down on the bed, careful not to wake her, then lied next to her. As I rolled onto my side, facing away from her, I felt her hands reach around me and grab onto my chest. I blushed, but quickly realized Shauna was still asleep by the sound of her cute snoring. I decided to let her keep her hands there and simply closed my eyes.
Of course, when your girlfriend suddenly squeaks out "my pillow" and squeezes with her sleepy hands, a little moan is hard to resist letting out. Still, our night from there went smoothly and we slept together for the first time since our journey back in Kalos.
