Sheer, cold, darkness.
No sound was heard. No voice echoed. Everything felt cold as ice. Not a single wind brushed one’s skin. Not a single peep caressed one’s ear.
Darkness was all that could be seen. And while light might be the source of all that is good, darkness is eternal, for darkness is a cold truth that all must face upon death.
But for some good fortune of the people, darkness holds a longer expiration date, allowing them to obtain the light they hungrily want before their time runs out.
Sun brightened lively as it stood proudly above the blue skies. Pokémon chirped and squeaked in joy as they ran around the city and nearby forests. Humans laughed and talked peacefully with one another. The event of last night didn’t stop them from pursuing their everyday lives. Some were still cleaning up their stalls. A few children and baby Pokémon were seen playing around with the festival’s games that still lingered around.
A girl came out of the Icirrus gym. A full, wide smile painted her rosy, sunny face. “Well that was fun,” she commented to herself, right hand holding the city’s badge as proof of their victor. Chuckling once, White pinned the badge under her vest, smile growing wider to see the row of trinkets that resembled her one step closer to victory.
Like their previous encounters, before she had any time to turn or think, White felt her neck being wrapped around by a pair of arms. “Ack- Air…!”
Oh Arceus oh Arceus oh Arceus oh Arceus oh Arceus oh Arceus oh Arceus oh frickin’ damn Arceus!
Those were the only words that occupied White’s frantic mind. Her hands ruffled her hair for the eleventh time, threatening to mess up her do that Bianca combed oh so nicely. Right after she realized what her Pokémon had done, White felt like she had been punched in the uterus. Never would she think that her Pokémon would betray her like this. They were better than this. They should know better.
But nope. It turned out her Pokémon were just as slick and sly as oil on ice.
And so the night marked the memories of the certain two. For the first time in his life, N was presented with nothing but awe and amazement. Foods that he ate, games that he played; all opened his eyes like open doors, making him see the joys and wonders of the outside world.
And for a girl named White, all she could do was smile and laugh at the pleasant shock his true self gave her.
Purring happily, Serena nibbled her cookie. She sat at their front yard, eyes gazing at the glistening stars that blanketed the empty sky. The Ampharos glanced at the male by her side, who was also silently chewing at his own treat. ‘Hey Damien,” she called out softly, gently nudging his side with her elbow.
The air around them seemed to intensify. The sounds around them seemed to mute off completely. Only heartbeats were heard; one that boomed stronger than the other. White could feel the heat rushing to her cheeks. What is he doing here?! Her mind screamed as loud as sirens. Of all times, of all places, why is he here?!
N, on the other hand, stayed glued in his position. For the first time, his mind went blank. His mouth felt dry. There, standing before his very emerald eyes, was the girl that invaded his analytical thoughts and stirred his sturdy doubts. What’s more, she was sporting anything but the usual. Never had N seen her wear such a thing. She was still White; that N couldn’t deny. But the White tonight seemed…elegant in his eyes.
White stood proudly before the Icirrus Gym. Her hands held her waist as she looked at the cave-like building. “This gym is uses ice Pokémon,” she smirked happily, head turned to look at her Samurott. “Think you can handle a little brain freeze, Isaac?”
‘You bet!’ Isaac roared triumphantly, forelegs stomping in anticipation. His eagerness was fuel to his trainer. Fisting into her right palm, White raised her arms and cheered, “Let’s get us that badge!”
With both screaming with such tenacity, they ran into the gym.
“Well, that was easy as pie. Don’t you think, Dex?” White stretched her arms as she walked out of the gym. Dexter happily trotted by her side, neighing in pride at his splendid victory. Though her back still ached from the numerous blasts of cannons she had to endure, the glistening Mistralton badge pinned inside her vest made her forget all the soreness. Radiating a proud smile, White patted Dexter’s head, earning her a loving whine.
Heartbeats raced. Time ticked. All were set in stone. One dashed at the speed of light. One screamed in utmost terror. One had his feet glued to the ground, making no sudden movements as the sharp tip zoomed in his vision.
Ba-dump ba-dump ba-dump BA-DUMP…!
A loud exhalation of both relief and fatigue slipped through her mouth. White stood on top of a small hill. A smile formed her face as she saw the city of Mistralton. “Well guys,” she spoke as White looked from behind. Her team of four met her gaze, all beaming with smiles even with exhaustion lingering in their veins. “Good news is I can see Mistralton City.” White held her hips, huffing proudly at their advance.
“Bad news is I can’t take any more walking.” Her huffs of tenacity soon turned into groans of fatigue. She let her body fall backwards, arms spread apart and back landing on the soft bed of grass. Her Pokémon stood above her head, eyeing White with dry, amused chuckles.
Blowing a short sigh, she looked up. “Mind if we camp out here tonight, guys? I swear I can’t move another muscle and I’m too lazyyyy,” she moaned childishly as White rolled left and right. Her arms were on her stomach. Her legs were bent as she swayed around. Sounds of their laughter echoed in her ears, making White flash a white, cheeky smile.
“That settles it then!” Quickly she sat up straight and turned around. Her smile staying on her face, White asked, “So who wants me to batch up some Sitrus soup for dinner?”
Needless to say her Pokémon tackled her to the ground with loud barks and huge smiles on their faces.
N sat quietly at the rail of the Driftveil Drawbridge. He hugged his knees, eyes on the clear water. His reflection was shining elegantly before him. His emerald eyes shined dully at the sparkling image.
“You better be ready coz I will defeat you.”
”Yes, I hate their leader.”
Her words were like a blast of echoes, banging his eardrums minute by minute. He sighed bitterly, slamming his forehead on his knees. She hated him. She wanted N to lose. She wanted N defeated.
She will snatch away all he had believed in since he was born.
“Mama, where are we going?”
Emery looked at his son. The child tugged the sleeve of her blouse. Pursing a small smile, she answered, “We’re going to Sinnoh to see grandma and grandpa. Isn’t that fun?”
The boy bit the insides of his cheeks. He gazed out front. The wonderful island of Cinnabar was slowly fading away from his gaze. He then focused his attention back at his mother. “But Mama, isn’t Papa coming with us?”
He saw her mother’s smile slowly fading away. Emery averted her gaze, her finger softly tapping her cheek. “Well darling, Papa has lots of work to do back home. Sometimes Papa has to sacrifice himself just so he can make us happy.”
His head tilted to the left, confused with his mother’s explanation. “Sacrifice…?”
Lillil mumbled woozily in her sleep. Slowly, she opened her eyes. Her vision was blurry, but a few seconds later, she was able to see clearly.
And the first thing she saw – was Samurott’s face closely to hers.
”Oh wow! Kotone, your house looks awesome!”
Kotone scratched her head in abash. Her cheeks flushed in a pink colour. Her mouth burst cheeky giggles. “Ah it’s nothing. I’m just happy to have found a place for me and my Pokémon.”
Silver rolled his eyes at her statement. Yeah, one would be happy – if one so happen to live in a luxurious penthouse in one of the finest condos in Goldenrod City.
