The Alolan region was all excited tonight.
In the small town of Iki town, a lot of people were rassembled on the big place. It was the night already, the whole town was lighting up by a big fire.
You were here, among those people. But in opposite of everyone, you were looking...sad.
You could still remembered what happened yesterday.
You came to Malie City with your friend Elio, just a special day. You were about to tell him your feelings for him but he ignored you.
Upset, you ran away, yelling to him you were cutting ties with him.
"Sigh...Elio..." You whispered as a powerful male voice raised up in the crowd.
It was Hala, you knew him since a while.
"My friends! Thanks you to everyone for your presence! This event shall be remember in honor of Lunala and Solgaleo, our guardians gods!" He yelled proudly before pointing the moon.
"Soon, the sun will rise, and the moon will follow its way, proving its superiority! In a total solar eclipse!"
Everyone started to get excited, as Hala laughed happily.
"For this extraordinary event, I have a surprise for you! Lunala's trainer! The presence of the god of the Moon during such an event is a gift from the sky! (Y/N), come here please!"
You took a deep breath and made your way throught the crowd, coming next to Hala. He smiled at you, as everyone was looking as you with shining eyes.
"I present you (Y/N)! This fantastic trainer caught Lunala! Right?
You grabbed a Dusk Ball on your belt and quietly threw it, showing your Lunala. It roared proudly at the crowd, the moonlight reflecting on its body as everyone was startled.
-In real!! Awesome!! So the legend was true!!
-Looks like your Pokemon and you made their effect, (Y/N). Too bad Solgaleo isn't here as well.
-Huh ? Why ? You asked.
-Well, knowing Lunala was going to be here, I wanted Solgaleo to be here as well. In an ultimate battle, those two clashing under the eclipse... Would be the battle of the century."
You nodded and looked down. You were quite regretting Elio wasn't here for this special event...
The night was starting to disappear, everyone looked at the moon, when suddenly a roar resonated.
Lunala was the first to react, roared in answer, as Solgaleo appeared, entering in the city at full speed.
Everyone startled, you were also.
Hala was about to summon Tapu Koko, but he stopped when he saw a boy on Solgaleo.
You recoiled, startled.
Elio looked at you and jumped off his Pokemon. He pet his fur and walked towards Hala.
"Sorry, I'm late.
-Elio! I mean, champion of Alola! You finally came!
-I hesitated actually, I wasn't in the mood to do this, but..."
He looked at you, with a neutral expression but his eyes were quite sad.
"But I chose to come for the ceremony.
-Thanks you, Elio. Thanks you very much. Said Hala, putting his hands on the boy's shoulders. My friends! The legendary battle between the gods of Sun and Moon....will start soon!"
Everyone got excited again, except you and Elio.
You looked at him.
-This isn't the moment, (Y/N)... He said, turning at you. We have a ceremony to make."
You were about to yell something at him, to bursted out but Lunala stopped you in a glare.
"Lunala, you...You want to fight Solgaleo so bad?
-Minaaa! (Yes, this is the ceremony. I must not lose.)
-Fine, let's do this together."
"People of Alola, witness this mythological struggle! (Y/N) with Lunala against Champion Elio with Solgaleo!"
You recoiled and Elio did so. You two stared at each other, your two Pokemon were silent as well.
The both of you nodded, focused so strongly that everyone was agape, excited quietly.
"Let the Ceremonial Battle begin! May the Sun and Moon be with you, trainers!
The people started to get excited again as the two gods rushed at each other, roaring.
-Solgaleo, use Psychic as well!"
The two gods attacked each other but weren't weakened enough.
"Lunala, Shadow Ball!"
Lunala hit Solgaleo quite violently, as he almost fell off.
"Solgaleo, Iron Head!"
Lunala also recoiled from the hit, as the dawn was slowly coming.
"Elio, I wanted to say sorry for yesterday! You yelled, almost crying. Would you ever forgive me?
-Use Iron Head again!!"
Lunala was about to faint already, Elio's angerness was making Solgaleo stronger, you could feel it.
"Elio....Sob... You clinched your fists.
-(Human, I can't lose!) Sent Lulana by telepathy to you.
-I know... This is our battle...Do you think you can make a lost blow?
-Minaaaa ! (Bet I can!)"
The eclipse started, the town was almost in night again.
"Solgaleo, Sunsteel Strike! Yelled Elio."
His Pokemon roared, his body changed to its Radiant Sun phase and he jumped, roaring again as a huge sun appeared behind him, he was ready to strike.
"Lunala! Use Moongeist Beam!"
Lunala screamed, and flied to above the town, just above Solgaleo. The eclipse was almost finished, the two gods were aligned with it as Lunala took his Full Moon phase and prepared a ray of light.
You and Elio yelled together.
The two Pokemon attacked, Solgaleo charged Lunala while Lunala attacked him with the beam.
A huge light appeared, the whole place got envelopped in a deep mist.
When it vanished, the two gods were on the ground....both fainted.
"Lunala! You yelled, running to him.
-(Sorry...I failed...) Said the god, looking to you.
-No...Don't say that... You said, crying. You made your best..."
You hugged Lunala's head and saw Elio was doing the same to Solgaleo, who was licking his face.
The young champion looked at you, you looked away in shame.
"Well, well. What a ferocious battle we had. Said Hala, clapping in his hands. You two are awesome trainers!"
People cheered for you and Elio as fireworks appeared in the black sky, where only the sun and moon were visible.
Lunala and Solgaleo nodded at each other and pushed you and Elio towards the other.
-Elio...I...I'm sorry... You sighed, ready to cry again.
-Humph...Sighed Elio, looking to the fireworks.
-Would you ever forgive me?
-You...You won't, huh... You said, sadly.
-That's what I dislike about you. Simply said Elio, putting off his cap.
-You are too much worried for nothing. Slightly smiled Elio to you.
Your whole body was shaking, you were crying like a fountain, your cheeks were all red.
Elio giggled and put his hat on your head, holding your shaking hand and widely smiling.
"You ran away yesterday...but I never hated you for that you know?
-I know you since two years, you aren't the kind of person to cut ties this easily.
-...Why were you ignoring me?
Elio scretched his face with a finger, blushing quite strongly.
"Well...your declaration was so....sudden that I didn't know how to react ...
-I thought about it all day today and I...I...
You were expecting an answer when Elio approached his head from yours and gave you a kiss on the cheek.
-I love you...(Y/N), I love you...since you came to Alola two years ago...
-I'm sorry, you made the first step... He said, holding your hands.
-This...is nothing..my Elio...Nothing..."
Lunala and Solgaleo smiled at each other as you let your frail body fell into the arms of the one you loved...He hugged you back....The fireworks, the eclipse, the crowd...
Nothing else than you two existed in this moment.
"I love you Elio..." You said in a whisper, closing your eyes.....
