It was one of those days. One of those days where you just want to lay back, sigh, and daydream.It was raining heavily, and a thunderstorm was brewing outside my room.
I stared into the mirror, concentrating on my bright blonde hair, which wasn't tied up in a ponytail for the first time in two years. Next I stared at my black clothing. A short black skirt, black blazer, dark grey polo shirt and black tie. I looked like walking death. Is it fair to crack jokes on death when your sister just died? I don't know.
I fiddled in the drawer on my dresser - which held my mirror - and found what I was looking for. A black headband.
I put it on, and it pulled my hair back behind my ears. I sighed deeply,
and reached into my blazer pockets. Yup, my pokemon were there.
About half a second later, there was a knock on the door. My eyes drifted to the tall, brown door and I coughed.
"Its open..." I muttered in between coughing fits. The fire last week had done no good to my chest.
The door opened slowly, and in walked Lucy, my best friend in this dark and lonely world.
"R-Rose? Its time to go..." She said solemly, stuttering.
I didn't look at her. I simply grabbed the red rose that lay on my dresser and put it next to my pokeballs in my blazer pocket.
Lucy pulled a strand of her thick, black hair behind her eyes and looked straight into my dark, solemn brown eyes with her bright, icy blue ones. She was wearing exactly the same clothes as me, which made me angry for an unknown reason.
I noticed a single tear roll down her left cheek, and she turned away, gesturing for me to follow. Did I really look that much like my sister?
We left my cozy, familiar room and entered the long, winding corridoors of the sixth floor hotel in the Resort Area.
We didn't say a word as we turned down four coridoors, and down five flights of stairs to the hotel lobby.
Everyone was waiting for me. I scanned the familiar faces.
One of them I instantly reconigsed was another Battle Frontier Brain's child. Barry. He gave a small wave, looking solemn, but still managing to smile. His hair was the same colour as mine, and his strangely orange eyes were shaking. He was wearing a black blazer, dark grey polo shirt, black tie and long, black trousers. I just glared at him and looked at the boy next to him.
Another Frontier Brain's son. For the record, I was the only girl. Paul had his hands in his trouser pockets, and was looking at his Dad, who was talking to Barry's dad, Palmer. Paul's black eyes were unreadable, and his hair fell across his cheeks and ears. He was wearing exactly the same clothes as Barry.
I closed my eyes then, and sighed another deep sigh. Lucy sweatdropped, and coughed for attention.
"Rose is here... c-can we go now, Sir Drake?" She asked, facing Paul's dad.
Drake looked at her, his expression as barren as ever. His looks were almost exactly the same as Paul's, but his hair was cut shorter. He was even wearing the same clothes, but in a bigger scale. He nodded.
"Lets be off. Get this over with already." His voice was deep.
Palmer, who was standing next to him, nodded as well.
"Rose, you're coming with me, Barry, Vicky and Paul. Lucy, you're going with Drake, JoJol, Reji, and Hermonie."
I nodded, walking down the final step, and heading towards the two boys. Paul and Barry both looked at me at the same time, their expressions unreadable.
Barry gave me a small nod, smiling.
"C'mon Rose. Lets get this over with." He gestured to the black hurse outside. I gulped.
Paul's eyes narrowed.
"Don't be such a baby. Just follow us." His voice was cold, and I found no comfort in it. It was like a black pit of nothingness.
