*On the boat to Kanto*
The sun was on its way down and there was a little breeze. May was standing on the deck of the boat. She was happy to be seeing her friends again. She wondered how Max did on getting his badge "It's so beautiful" She said looking out to the sun set "You know May, If you talk to yourself people will think you're a crazy person" came a voice she knew all to well. "It's also not nice to sneak up on people" May said in her defence "hm" was his replay and flicked his hair out of his face. May never under stood it, but though it was cute although she would never tell him that mostly because it would go to his head, but partly because she was scared he would laugh at her. "It was just a comment about the sun" she told him. Drew was taken back by the sight of May standing with her back to the sun. It made her look like an angle. "What? Do I have something on my face?" she asked confused as he had been looking at her. "No, your face is fine" she said a little embarrassed that he said it. "Oh thanks, I think?" she said with a smile. "So you happy to see your friends?" he asked, walking past her to stand looking at the ocean, "There your friends too" May said turning to join him. "Yeah, I guess, I never really had friends when I was a kid" he said looking down. May had never seen this side to Drew before "Never?" she asked feeling sorry for him. "Ha, I know what your thinking, I guess that's why he is such an ass" "NO! I wasn't thinking that at all" May said shaking her head. "You must have been lonely" she said looking at the ocean. "I don't want your pitty, I was fine being on my own" May was a mad, she wasn't trying to give him pitty she was just… then she stopped her self from saying what she thought and said nothing. She remembered her mum telling her when she was small that sometimes action speak louder then words, so she took his hand but said nothing just looked out to the open water. Drew (who was half expecting her to shout or just walk away) was surprised by the action, but didn't let go or pall away. He liked it for once they weren't fighting they were just happy in this place at this time. 'Maybe I should tell her' Drew thought looking over to see her looking right back at him. She smiled that wonderful smile that his heart melt. They came closer till her noses were touching and Drew felt his heart skip a beat. Their lips were almost touching. When…..
"Ring Ring, Ring Ring" the sound cut though the two like a hot knife though better. "Oh sorry that's my phone" May said still moments away from Drew and palled her phone from her bag. "Hello, Oh Hi Misty, Yeah we on the boat now" She spoke on the phone to the red head. As she walked away Drew thought he missed his chance to tell her. When she looked back a smiled that same smile again. He looked out to the water "Okay" he said to him self "at the party" he said dropping a red rose over the side of the ship. He watched as it floated away. "Yeah sure, at the party" he muttered in a sad voice and went back to his room.
* The Cerulean Gym*
"Is the sea nice?" the red head asked as she placed the phone between her ear and shoulder because she was trying to give Psyduck a bath with not much luck. "Good, you been here by the morning?" she asked May who was on the boat with Drew on the way to stay with Misty. "And how is Drew?" Misty asked in a mocking tone as she knew May liked Drew "Okay, Okay I'm sorry, he not there is he?" she paused "Okay you can tell me all about it later, okay I see you soon bye" Misty putting the phone down. "Now Psyduck will you just stop it you need to be clean" Misty said fighting with the water pokemon, she put down the bottle of shampoo and stepped back from Psyduck putting her hands on her hips as she looked down at him. "what am I going to do with you?" the small pokemon looked up at her blankly. "Like Mistyyyyy" came a voice from down stairs "because my head ache wasn't big enough" she turning to door to see what her sister was calling about. "Like Misty, hurry up!" came another voice "I'm coming, I'm coming, what is it?" Misty looked through the door to see her 3 older sisters sitting around the table with a look that worried her. "Don't look so scared Misty" Lilly said as she fixed her hair. "The last time we had a meeting like this you set me up with that weirdo" she said looking at her sisters "Yeah well, if we don't do anything like, no one will, when was the last time like called Ash?" Violet asked knowing full well that it make Misty mad. "He's been busy Violet and so have I, you know with running this Gym" she snapped back at her. "Like stop it" Daisy said "This is important" she looked around the room at her sisters.
"Now Misty, Brock's party is in like 3 days and you haven't even thought about buying a dress" She took Misty's hand and sat her in the chair. "Yeah like I have 4 and Lilly's had 3" Violet said like it was something everyone did. "I've been busy, and I just thought I could use one that you're not gonna wear" Misty said wanting to get out of this conversation as soon as she could. Violet rolled her eyes and flicked her on the head "Ow! Why did you do that?" she said rubbing her head "Because, it wouldn't go with your hair" Lilly said fixing her hair again for the 4th time. "May and Dawn are going looking like movie stars, plus us and you gonna stand next to them like not looking so good?" she carried on. "And like Ash is gonna be there, don't you like want him to fall off his feet for you?" Misty couldn't answer sure she wanted Ash to see her but she didn't want to tell her sister she was right. "that's not the point" Daisy said getting mad again. "We saw this and thought of you" she went out of the room and come back with a shopping bag. "So like we got you this" she handed over the bag to her younger sister. Misty looked at the bag then to her sisters "you 3 did something nice for me?" she couldn't get her head round it "like yeah and if you don't hurry up then I'm gonna wear it" Lilly said folding her arms. Misty opened the bag and to say she was worried about what her sisters had brought her, was an understatement. She palled out a long sky blue dress that hung only of one shoulder it had a midnight blue waistband; it looked like water flowing down the river, with the misty shine of the moon upon it. "Well do you like it?" Daisy asked not being able to read Misty's face. "It's lovely" she said in little voice which for the red head was strange. "But I don't understand why?" She asked looking at her sisters, "Well, I guess because you're like okay" Violet said giving her sister a hug, followed by the other two. It was times like this that Misty really it was bit like a full moon or a double rainbow they don't happen often but when they do everyone enjoys them.
Ash watched as the sun slowly decended behind the mountains. He watched the shadow move down them and couldn't help but think what was hiding up there, what took Marion and was after Ho-Oh? "What ya looking at?" came a voice from behind him. He turned to see Gary standing next to him "You still thinking about going up there?" Gary asked. "Yeah, I can't just leave it." Ash said not looking away "Yeah that's just like you. Never walk away from a fight" Ash nodded "What do you think up there?" Ash asked when "Gary, are ready?" come a voice from behind them. It was Dawn she came and stood with them taking Gary's hand "yeah, we were just talking about how Ash is gonna ask Misty to the party" Gary said with that look that Ash hated. "What?" he said still trying to process what he had just heard "Aw, I'm sure you think of something" She said with a smile. "Yeah, I'm sure, later Ash" The two talked off to the sun set it was the first time Ash had noticed that Gary was holding a picnic basket. As they walked off his mind shifted from what was in the mountains to Misty. He did miss her but how come he tell her that "Chu" Pikachu come a sat on his shoulder, "You miss her huh buddy?"
