Chapter 1-My alarm clock was beeping and I heard a Dodrio cry in the distance, signaling the arrival of dawn. I blearily stretched, got out of bed and went over to the mirror. As always, I found myself wishing that I was a normal coloured Charmander. Instead of the normal orange, my skin was a shiny golden colour which blended with my cream coloured belly and my eyes where a stunning blue, the flame on my tail burned brightly. I went downstairs to the kitchen, were my foster parents, a couple of Charizard’s stood with breakfast. My real parents we’re killed when I was just 2 years old. As per usual my foster dad Riki greeted me warmly, while my foster mother, Sammy, made me breakfast and gave me a hug. I ate my breakfast quickly and with a small sigh, went to check the mail that was on the kitchen bench. I sifted through the mail, hoping to find a letter confirming my acceptance to a rescue team guild. It’s my lifelong dream to create and lead the world’s finest rescue team. I saw many bills and letters from family and when I came down to the last letter my heart skipped a beat. I glanced at it and almost fainted with joy when I opened it and read that it was from “Lopunnys Guild of Fun and Friendship” with my heart ready to burst out of my chest with joy and excitement I read that her Guild would be very happy to accept me, and to meet her at the Guild at 1:30 tomorrow afternoon. I gave an excited yell and went to show my foster parents the letter. To my dismay, they skim read the letter and sternly told me that ”An exploration team Guild is no place for a young charmander like you, there is too much risk involved, you will stay here and get a nice job at the bank”. I opened my mouth to argue but shut it again as a plan formed in my mind. I said “Okay, I will stay here and just let my dreams slide away”. This was meant to be sarcastic, but luckily for me Riki and Sammy took it seriously. I forced myself to walk instead of run up the stairs to my room. I packed some food, water, blankets, toothbrush and of course the letter, plus my favourite red bow, my blue scarf and pink bracelet. I took a few deep breaths and left a letter for my foster parents. I reread what I’d written “Dear Riki and Sammy, I want to thank you for taking such good care of me these last 8 years, but I’m going to chase my dreams, and I hope that you care for me enough to respect my decision and let me live my life the for myself” Sincerely yours Charcoal. I took one last look around my beloved room, took one deep breath and opened my window. I used a nearby tree to lower myself around, looked at the sunset in the east, the direction we’re the guild was, and took my first step into a brand new world full of fun and adventure as well as mystery.
