    Default Re: Pokemon Special ~ The Next Chapter [CHAPTER TWO POSTED]

    Never fear Flaze is here!

    That was a stupid introduction phrase -w- but anyways, I finally managed to read all two chapters, and I feel bad for taking so long in all honesty xD

    Anyways on to the review. As I've said before it's not usual that you see a fic based on Pokemon Special especially a sequel, this fic brought me back simply because my first fic was also a sequel fic but to the anime, but enough about that.

    First I'll ask if you're included the FRLG part in the fic? considering no one mentioned Team Rocket's involvement in the Sevvi Island and the attack on Vermilion but I'll let that slide because you told me before that you read the translations as they come out.

    I liked the first chapter, I think it was a pretty good introduction to the characters, I disagree with Instrutilus on one thing. I for one thought that the first chapter had a good amount of description while also leaving things for the reader to imagine, it's always good to allow the reader's imagination to take a part in things at times.

    The plot is pretty fresh, I liked Lydia because of how naive and silly she is but she's also very likeable and I'm really curious as to why her father doesn't want to let her travel on her own. The thing that shocked me the most about this chapter was Green's personality, I wouldn't expect him to be so caring I guess xD maybe a little bit of a softie cause she's his niece but I never expected him to act so cheerfully, but that's just me.

    Aiden was also another shock for me, however I think that the revelation of him being part of Team Rocket was a bit...quick, I mean that we didn't get too many hints about it and it was just mentioned in one go so while I was surprised I was also a bit confused because of how sudden it had been.

    I can see a lot of things that'll become important later on, including Aiden and Lydia's feelings, though I had already pretty much guessed that one by myself, don't make her too oblivious to his feelings though.

    That's all I have to say so far, it's still at the start so there's not much to comment on regarding the story, like I said before I'll pass on thinking of things that happen in the FRLG and HGSS chapters of the manga cause I know that the former you probably haven't read and the latter is one that even I haven't read xD

    Otherwise I think you're doing pretty good for someone that's started out, just make sure to keep it up and become better.

    Thank you so much! >__< I really appreciate the in-depth input. And yes, I have not read the FRLG/E Saga but I do know some of the major events that happened in the story. I just didn't know how to put that in...I may go back and re-word that extra's dialogue to include those events, that way to clarify that. Thank you for pointing that out. The TR part of the story was tough...I agree with you it's too fast to introduce it; the preferable way would probably have been hashing out little bits and pieces, etc. the more Aidan trusts Lydia the more he reveals. It was tough to give the readers an idea of the main quest out without spoiling that, since his motive is that quest. I have to work on that. I guess I'm being too cheezy with the 'love at first sight thing' on Aidan's part too but I am a sucker for stuff like that xD; Especially when the female character is really innocent. I like the strong leader but awkwardly romantic type. There's another secret about him you'll find out later in the story that I won't spoil. And Green's personality...uhhhhh it's so hard x___x In my mind I get ideas about how Blue, Yellow, Red Gold, Crys, and Silver would act, but he is SO hard to portray on a personal level. I'll have to try to improve that in later chapters.

    Hope to see you on skype Mr. Haze :) It's a pleasure exchanging ideas!

    Pokemon Special: The Next Chapter


    The Adventure Continues...
    Lydia abandons her life at home for a chance to fulfill her dreams. While walking through the city in attempt to find Aidan's whereabouts, Lydia finds herself caught in the middle of an villainous plot concocted by a group of terrorists; what's worse, Aidan somehow is involved! After rescuing Mr. Psychic, a man with the power to accurately predict the future, Aidan reveals the motives behind his journey. The two trainers also learn about their futures, and much to Lydia's distaste, she realizes she must embrace life to the fullest before time runs out. Moved by her courage and determination, Aidan invites her to accompany him on his journey, though he is hesitant to reveal his true agenda.

    Rating: Teen (Mild language, bloodless violence, suggestive themes)

    Enjoy Chapter Three.

    Chapter Three: VS Meowth


    "…And the winner is Green, leader of the Viridian Gym!" the referee called.

    "No way…"

    The challenger, defeated, slumped to the ground. One more badge and he could have entered the annual Pokemon league tournament. Green returned his Machamp to its Pokeball and approached the trainer.

    "That was a fantastic match, son," he replied. "Although I noticed that your Pokemon didn't have full health at the start of the match. Once your team has recuperated and you've trained them further, it would be an honor if we could have a rematch."

    "T-thank you, sir," the young man piped up. "Once my Pokemon are fully healed, we'll be back!"

    The man quickly gathered his things and hurried from the scene. As soon as the door of the Viridian Gym slammed behind him, Green sighed and buried his hands in his face. It was difficult enough that he was dealing with a crisis situation while at the same time attending to the gym. Ironically, it had been empty for most of the day, minus a few challengers, which didn't help his nerves. Attaching his Pokeball to his waist he made his way to the back door of the building. Stepping outside and locking it behind him, Green paced furiously to his house, located directly behind his tower of a gym. It had been rebuilt after Giovanni, former ex-leader of Team Rocket, had finally been taken into custody with a sentence for life in prison. Upon entering, it was empty. Blue was still at work. A new university had been built in the center of town, where she taught Pokemon lectures on a daily basis.

    Yesterday, Green had gotten a phone call about a series of robberies of confidential documents on Kanto history. In addition, Giovanni had been murdered in his jail cell by an unknown vandal. It had driven him off the wall. Today had been a stressful afternoon, unbeknownst to his wife. However, Green wouldn't be surprised if she did hear the news. Her intellect couldn't be denied. The region had been peaceful for so many years that Green didn't expect another situation to present itself. The moment he opened the door to his office, the phone rang. He lunged for it.

    "Hello, this is Green."

    "Hey, it's me."

    "Hmph. I'd recognize that voice a mile away," Green retorted. "I thought you'd be busy with the gym."

    "I'm having Junior look after it for me while I take care of some things."

    "I take it your search hasn't been successful, then."

    "No," the voice replied sullenly. "But I'm sure you know that's not why I'm calling."

    Green perked up. "So you've heard the news, then?"

    "Yeah."

    "Son of a…they just don't know when to give up, do they?! I got a call from Bill the other day saying the Celadon University records have been robbed…It's all such a big mess. I can't leave the gym to investigate until Blue's classes end in a month. But we have to stop this before things get out of hand. I swear, if they target Pallet Town aga-"

    "Calm down, Green. I've called Brock, Misty, and Erika. The Celadon police are looking into it. We beat them numerous times before, and we can do it again."

    "It amazes me how your so calm all the time," Green sighed. "What I don't understand is what their motive is. Who would murder Giovanni after he was already in jail? Could it be some sort of plot for revenge?"

    "I don't know. I'll be heading to Celadon to get word from Erika." the voice replied.

    "I just hope there's a way we can keep the children out of this…my daughter is as sharp as Blue. And I can only say the same for the others…my niece, especially. Saffron is so close to Celadon."

    "Yeah…"

    "Sorry. Didn't mean to bring that up."

    "It's okay."

    The call waiting function began to beep on Green's receiver. "Listen, I've got a call on the other line. We might be intercepted in the future, so let's start exchanging letters. I'll send Pidgeot to Celadon so you pick him up."

    "Alright. Tell Blue and Emilia I said hi," the voice answered calmly. "I'll keep up with the investigation."

    "Will do. Just take it easy. As soon as I can get coverage for the Gym I'll handle this. I've told you this before and I'll tell you again. Know your limits."

    The voice softened a little. "Thanks, Green. We'll be in touch."

    Green punched a set of numbers on the phone.

    "This is Green speaking."

    "Hello…Green," a voice said shakily.

    "Axel. This is certainly a surprise," Green paused. "You haven't called in years. I assume Sliph must be keeping you busy. Is there anything you need? How's Lydia doing?"

    "Well, that's actually what I'm calling about."

    "About Lydia? Is everything alright?"

    "No…my daughter…my precious daughter…she's gone missing!" Axel cried.

    Green nearly dropped the receiver.

    "WHAT?"

    (\__/)

    (-o-)(-o-)(-o-)

    "Ahhhhhhh, this is THE LIFE!"

    Lydia stretched her arms above her head. The sun was shining beautifully on the fields of Route 5. It had only been twenty-four hours since she left home and she already felt like she was in paradise. After meeting Mr. Psychic, she and Aidan had camped out in a local Pokemon Center in Saffron before setting out on their journey. With a gentle breeze blowing and the Sparrows chirping softly towards the horizon, the day couldn't be more perfect.

    Aidan chuckled heartily. "So you've never left the city before?"

    "Nooooope," Lydia chimed in a sing-song voice. "Not until today. My attendants only let me outside to tend to the garden or work at the Pokemart," she explained. "But oh man, I never knew it felt THIS good!"

    "Why doesn't your father want you to become a Pokemon trainer?" Aidan asked. "We live in a world full of Pokemon. What did he expect? There's no way he could get you to avoid them forever."

    "I don't know," Lydia sighed. "He actually used to love Pokemon."

    "Why the change of heart?"

    "I think it has to do with my mom," she began reluctantly. "My mom died of an illness when I was five years old. She worked as a Professor in Pallet Town in place of her grandfather, Professor Oak. After her death my dad became extremely absorbed in his work, and then we moved to Saffron City. A friend of his worked at Sliph so he got a job there."

    "Wow…I'm so sorry, Lydia." Aidan's put a hand on Lydia's shoulder. "That must have been rough."

    "Yeah, it was. I'll never forget the moment we moved into our new house. My dad released all of his Pokemon in the streets, right in front of me. And he said that as long as I lived I was never allowed to become a Pokemon trainer. From then on, he hired strict attendants to take care of me. I wasn't allowed to go anywhere without them…The only place I could be alone was my room."

    Digging through her skirt pocket, Lydia pulled out the pokeball of Noel. "But I wasn't alone. My aunt and uncle gave me Noel." A bright smile spread across her face. "They told me never to give up on Pokemon, or my dreams. So Noel and I would play together every day in secret," Lydia giggled. "And then the I found you! The place we met the other day was near our secret spot. But I guess I didn't look behind me when I left work."

    "Guess not," Aidan grinned.

    "Well, all of that with my father doesn't matter now," Lydia concluded. "Because I'm going to be a pokemon trainer, and that's that."

    And she only had a year to do it.

    "Hey, that's the spirit! With my help, you're going to be a pro in no time!"

    "Great!" Lydia clasped her hands together eagerly. "So, where are we off too?"

    "…No idea."

    Lydia blinked, dumbfounded.

    "Huh? You mean you don't know how to get to Johto from here?"

    "Weeeell…I kind of snuck on the Magnet Train to get to this region," Aidan said nervously. "I actually don't know anything about where we are. And I lost my Pokegear, so I don't have an ID."

    "And I thought my sense of direction was bad."

    "Haha. Sorry."

    "You can get back to Johto by getting a pass for the Magnet Train," Lydia replied. "I went their on a trip once. But you have to apply for one in Saffron City."

    Lydia gulped. That would risk being caught by her father.

    Aidan caught on quickly. "Probably not a good idea we go back there, anyway. Wouldn't want your old man seeing you. Any other ideas?"

    "Well, I had a town map beforehand, but I kinda lost it. And I don't have a Pokegear either." Lydia rubbed her temples. "Ummmm…oh, I got it! I could always get one from my uncle Green. He lives in Viridian City. Besides, we should tell him about what's going on with Team Rocket. He'll believe me. And he might be able to find Red."

    Aidan nodded. But in his heart he couldn't help but feel a tiny pang of guilt. It was pointless to deny that part of the reason he'd invited her to tag along was for her connections. With powerful allies on his side his cause would be ten times easier than continuing on his own. And then, there was Lydia's knowledge of the region, which he didn't have either. But he knew those weren't the only reasons. In a way he could relate to Lydia a lot, especially about her not having a fatherly figure in her life, and her passion for Pokemon. He hadn't seen his parents for years…and to make things worse, he didn't even know who they really were. But he was determined to keep searching. He had been through hell escaping from his pursuers to get to Kanto, and all the more he was lucky to be alive. Nothing, not even the past, would stop him from finding his parents. And in order to do that, he couldn't let the world be blown to pieces.

    "I heard there's a Hidden Machine that teaches a Pokemon to fly. Do you have one?"

    "No," Aidan shook his head. "My pokemon don't know how to fly."

    "Then I guess we'll have to go to Viridian on foot. If we follow this path here, I think we'll make it to Celadon City."

    "Alrighty then."

    "Great!" Lydia cried in delight, waving her hands in the air. "I'm so excited!"

    "You should be," Aidan turned to face her. "Because your about to have your first pokemon lesson."

    (\__/)

    (-o-)(-o-)(-o-)

    The serenity of the afternoon continued as Lydia and Aidan made their way through the fields of Route 7. A sign they eventually encountered confirmed their suspicions that they were indeed heading in the right direction: towards Celadon City, known as "the City of Rainbow Colors." Lydia heard the tales of how the rays of the setting sun illuminated the city, bathing it with a colorful glow. Soon she would be one of the lucky ones to bask in its glory. Along the way Aidan had been explaining to her about different types of Pokemon, and how type effectiveness could be of advantage in battle. In addition, he explained how the more a Pokemon fought in battle, the more experience it would gain. Though it was all new and foreign to her, she listened intently and took in as much information as she could.

    "Let's see…so there are three basic types of Pokemon: fire, water, and grass. And each one has a different strength and weakness towards another," she repeated to Aidan.

    "Correct."

    "What about other types?"

    "There are many more, but you'll learn as you go along."

    "Ohhhhhh, okay."

    Aidan nodded. "For now, let's focus on the basics. You have Noel, right? Lapras is a water type. Water types have an advantage over fire types, like my Rapidash. Rapidash is a fire type. Think about it in terms of nature. It's common sense. Fire burns grass. Water takes out fire. Grass absorbs water. Make sense?"

    "Gotcha!"

    "Having your Pokemon having a type advantage over your opponent is key to a successful battle. Your Pokemon's attacks will be stronger and will be able to resist their opponent. Sometimes, certain types of Pokemon are resistant to certain attacks, too. Like normal type attacks don't work on Ghost types, and vice versa. Oh, and there's a Pokemon's moves. Different moves do different things. Some special moves you can only learn by leveling your Pokemon up. A Pokemon's moves plays a huge part in determining the outcome of the fight."

    Lydia's head was spinning. "Sorry, could you explain that again? I'm still confused."

    "Oh, my bad," Aidan rested his hands behind his head. "I can get a little crazy when it comes to Pokemon. Pokemon are my passion…no, their more than that. Their not only my partners, but they're my best friends. I think everyone should form a bond with Pokemon. My pokemon have taught me so much."

    And that, he thought matter-of-factly, was why he felt obligated to help Lydia. It wasn't right that Pokemon was taken away from her. He knew all too well how awful the isolation felt.

    "I wish I could have more Pokemon too," Lydia said.

    "But you can."

    "How?"

    "Like I said, I'll teach you everything you need to know!" Aidan winked. "Now I'll teach you how to catch a Pokemon."

    "That should easy," Lydia brought her fists to her face. "I've watched people on TV do it all the time."

    "Alright. Let's keep going until we find one."

    Lydia and Aidan proceeded to walk down the dusty path of Route 6. Several trainers here and there passed through but paid no attention to them. The trees and bushes concealed the many Pokemon living in the area. Many Pidgeys rested in the trees and several Poliwags swam in the riverbanks. However, the sight of the duo caused them to remain hidden and others scurried out of reach. A pack of Oddish preceded to hide in the leaves. After about two hours of walking Lydia rested her hands on her knees. They were getting nowhere. Rooftops of the buildings in Celadon City faintly dotted the horizon.

    "I…I didn't think it would be that hard to find a Pokemon," Lydia heaved. She wasn't used to walking such long distances. "I can already see Celadon City."

    "It's probably all the trainers walking through here," Aidan concluded. "Wild Pokemon can be really shy. If we had left the city a little earlier this morning we might have had more luck."

    Suddenly the bushes directly to the right of Lydia and Aidan began to rustle. The trainers whirled around. An auburn colored tail poked out. After a few more seconds of movement, the face of an Abra revealed itself.

    "That's the Pokemon Mr. Psychic had!" Lydia gasped with excitement. "I'm going to get it!"

    Lydia quickly rummaged through her backpack and pulled out an empty red and white capsule. There was no way she was going to let the Abra get away. Readying her aim, she raised her arm in poise to attack.

    "Lydia, wait..."

    But before time Aidan had time to finish Lydia had already thrown the Pokeball. The object bounced off of Abra's head and opened, ensnaring Abra in a flash of light. Snapping shut and dropping to the ground, the pokeball wiggled once before reopening and releasing the frightened Abra. It had broken free. Seconds later, it surrounded itself in a ball and disappeared. In an instant the Abra was gone. Aidan buried his hands in his face.

    "N-no way!" Lydia wailed. "What happened? Did I throw the pokeball wrong?"

    "That's not how you catch a Pokemon, Lydia," Aidan shook his head. "If you want catch a Pokemon, you have to weaken it first. Then throw the Pokeball."

    "Oh." Lydia sheepishly twiddled her thumbs. "My bad."

    "Here, I'll show you."

    Aidan scanned the brush until he saw a clump of leaves twitching. Taking a pokeball from his belt he carefully tapped it, releasing a Pokemon with similarities to a mouse. With dry, tough hide, and a set of three, sharp claws, the sandy colored Pokemon looked eager to battle. Happily it rubbed up against Aidan's legs.

    "This is Sandshrew," Aidan patted his companion under his ears. "I snuck him out of an experimental lab before I escaped headquarters."

    "Awwww! He's so adorable!" Lydia giggled.

    "Now watch carefully."

    Aidan motioned to the bushes. Sandshrew crept as close to the shrubs as possible.

    "Sandshrew! Aim a sand-attack at the bush!"

    Right on command, Sandshrew rapidly began digging in the ground to form a cloud of dust. With its hind legs, Sandshrew shot the clumps of sand towards the leaves. Startled, Abra teetered out of the bush. Unable to teleport, it attempted to brush the mass of sand from its eyes, but with no avail.

    Aidan turned face to Lydia. "By using Sand-Attack, it lowers the accuracy of a pokemon. Abra can't see due to Sandshrew's attack, so it can't teleport. Now it can't escape."

    Lydia nodded as if she understood. "Okay."

    "Okay! Now use Rollout!"

    Tucking its paws into a squat Sandshrew had formed a ball. Lunging for its opponent, Sandshrew knocked the confused Abra into a tree. Abra was immobilized. Taking the opportunity Aidan snatched an empty pokeball from his belt and threw it at the dizzy Pokemon. After a few jiggles the Pokeball stopped moving.

    "Alright! I caught Abra!" Aidan cheered. "Simple as that! Good job, Sandshrew!"

    Lydia clapped in amazement. Just now, she had witnessed her first Pokemon capture, right before her very eyes! It was the most exciting thing she had ever seen. The world of Pokemon was so vast.

    "That was amazing, Aidan," Lydia began. "If we find another pokemon, I'd love to try ag…."

    "MEOOOOWW!"

    A piercing cry broke Lydia's train of thought. Climbing down from a tree was cream-colored cat. The feline rested at the bottom of the tree and proceeded to clean its fur. A gold coin was embedded on its forehead.

    Lydia's eyes bulged.

    "Oh my GOSH!" she firmly gripped Aidan's arm. "That's the cutest Pokemon I've EVER seen! What Pokemon is that?"

    "That's a Meowth," Aidan replied. "They're usually pretty hard to find in the wild, at least in Johto."

    "Can you help me catch it, Aidan? Please?"

    "Of course. Call out Noel."

    Lydia threw her pokeball in the air. Noel, released from its chamber, moaned cheerfully.

    She turned to Aidan. "Okay, now what should I do?"

    "What attacks does Noel know?"

    "Ummm...Sing, Growl, and Water Gun."

    Aidan scrunched his brow, deep in thought. "Hmm…what about Confuse Ray?"

    "I'm not sure. Noel and I have gone swimming, and sometimes he'd fend off wild Pokemon. But he's never battled before."

    Minus the horrible Team Rocket incident. Lydia shook her head. She didn't want to think about it.

    Aidan nodded. "That might just be enough." he paused. "Lydia. Try ordering an attack at the Meowth. Anything…Noel's waiting!"

    "Okay Noel," Lydia hesitated. "Use Growl!"

    Lapras opened its mouth to emit a strong, pulsing sound wave. The shock of the noise immediately alerted the wild Meowth. Taken aback, Meowth hissed at its attacker. The cry bounced against Noel's sound waves, creating a sea of hideous noise.

    "It's using Growl to counteract Noel," Aidan shouted, covering his ears. "The goal is to weaken it!"

    "A-alright! Noel, try a Water Gun!"

    Without warning a burst of water sprayed from Noel's mouth, blasting the Meowth with full force. Knocked to the ground it was soaked to the bone. Angry, it immediately lunged for Noel, claws ready. Lydia recalled the Raticate from yesterday scratching Noel with a similar attack. Battles were so quick! But she wasn't going to fall for the same trick twice. Aidan mentioned the move Confuse Ray. Whether Noel knew it or not, it was worth a shot.

    "Noel, I'm counting on you! Give it all you've got and use Confuse Ray!" Lydia shouted.

    Lapras paused as if he was processing the information. To her surprise Noel opened his mouth once more and sent visible beams of sound towards the Meowth. As soon as they hit the its ears the Meowth immediately stopped in its tracks. Spinning and teetering, the Meowth had no control over it's actions. It began to scratch itself.

    "Now! Throw the Pokeball!"

    With all her might Lydia tossed the empty capsule towards the wild Meowth. Contained in a beam of light it disappeared. Lydia held her breath. The pokeball shook once, twice, three times…and then stopped. She had caught the Meowth.

    "WOW! I DID IT, I DID IT! I caught my first Pokemon!"

    Lydia was jumping up and down. Ecstatically she shook Aidan's arms. "Thank you so much!"

    "Hahaha, don't mention it," Aidan blushed. "Anything for a fellow Pokemon lover."

    "I'm going to name you Bijou because of that jewel on your head!" Lydia beamed. "From now on, we're going to be great friends!"

    Aidan smiled. "Good timing, too. We seem to be getting close to the city."

    "Then let's go." she smiled back.

    "OHOHOHOHOHOHOHOHO! Don't think you'll leave without saying heell-llo to me!"

    Lydia cringed.

    The voice calling from behind her was indistinguishable. Peppy, sugar-coated, high-pitched…she could never forget it. Out of all the times she had to run into her, now would have to be the worst.

    Aidan blinked, confused. "Lydia? Who is that?"

    Reluctantly, Lydia forced herself to turn around to see a young girl smiling back at her. Eyes covered in mascara with dainty pale skin, she could easily be mistaken for a model. Her long blond hair, half tied in a ponytail, fell smoothly to her waist. The black blouse she wore complemented her flashy red skirt, with a huge ribbon tied in the front. Even her matching hat seemed to stand out. The girl did a quick flip of her hair before waltzing over to approach Lydia.

    "Hi…Emilia." Lydia forced a smile.

    Emilia was clapping in the most obnoxious way possible. "Lydia, Lydia! I'm impressed. All these years hiding from public eye and you actually managed to catch a Pokemon! What's that, your first one?"

    "Second, actually," Lydia tried to answer in the nicest way possible. "Your dad gave me a Lapras."

    "Oh yeah, that little guy. I forgot. But if that's all you have you've got a long way to go. I just started my Pokemon journey a week ago and I've already caught twenty Pokemon. And...TADAH! The Celadon City Gym Badge!"

    "T-that's great. Good for you."

    "That's not all. Take a look at what my mom got me."

    Shuffling through her purse Emilia flashed a small, red device with a variety of buttons. Proudly she clicked it open it to reveal a blank screen.

    Lydia's mouth became the shape of an O.

    "Oh my gosh...is...is that...a Pokedex?!"

    "Bingo!" Emilia grinned. "One state-of-the art Pokedex, straight from Pallet Town. My mom got one from Professor Bill. Like it?"

    Lydia was practically in tears. She had wanted to own a Pokedex practically since she popped out of her mother's womb.

    Emilia turned to face Aidan. Immediately, she ran up and grabbed his arm. "And who's this hottie? Lydia, you didn't tell me you had a friend like this! You've got to introduce us!"

    "This is Aidan," Lydia answered. "He's a Pokemon trainer, and my new fried."

    "Wooow! You must be such a good Pokemon trainer!" Emilia squealed.

    "W-well, I try," Aidan stammered.

    "Lydia, it's a good thing a ran into you. Do you think you could do me a wee little favor?" She blinked.

    Lydia frowned. When they were kids Lydia was always tricked into doing Emilia's 'favors.' Borrowing money, helping her with housework, playing with her dolls...and in the end, she'd always end up empty handed.

    "Weeeell…I've been volunteering at a Pokemart, and I'm collecting donations for the poor," she spoke in the saddest voice she could muster. "They wanted me to sell some items to trainers to help with the cause. It's so sad how those poor Pokemon are left alone in the streets...it's horrible!"

    As she sniffled on Aidan's arm he awkwardly patted her shoulder. Lydia rolled her eyes. She didn't buy it.

    "Sorry, but no." Lydia grabbed Aidan by the arm. "Aidan and I have important things to do. Right, Aidan?"

    "You don't want my items?" Emilia pouted.

    "Aw, come on, Lydia. I don't see why we can't help. It's for a good cause."

    "Let me see those items," Lydia snatched a Full Restore from the case she was holding. Scrutinizing the object she smirked when her suspicions had been confirmed.

    "Nice try, Emilia. These are fake. I've worked at my dad's Pokemart and there's no official Sliph Company label on the product. All potions and restoring items have them."

    "Really?" Aidan turned to face Lydia, dumbfounded.

    "Yeah. Besides, I know you like the back of my hand."

    "Well, nothing escapes a keen eye," Emilia snuck a quick peek at her nails. "Except when the person becomes a space-cadet all the time."

    "What was that?!" Lydia could feel her blood boiling. It was getting harder to control her temper. "Sure, my memory could use some work, but at least I don't go around tricking people!"

    "Lydia, seriously. Your so naive. People in this world are not just going to jump off a bridge for you. If you really want something, and it's in your reach...then you go and get it, whatever it takes. A little white lie here and there is not going to kill you."

    "Look at how long your dad cooped you up for." Emilia chatted hurriedly. "You should have just left home a long time ago."

    Lydia's face fell. "Yeah, I know. But even so, I'm working hard now! I'm going to be the greatest trainer there ever was!"

    "Good, maybe. But you'll never surpass me. My dad says as soon as I get all eight badges I can have an Xtransceiver," Emilia practically was waving her nose in the air. "My Pokegear is getting old. But you don't even have that, do you?"

    "Why you..."

    "Weeell, would you look at the time. I REALLY should be going. Can't afford to slack on the Pokemon training. And since I'm in a good mood, I won't tell our dad's you've been sneaking off. Can't sell out my rival when the game's finally beginning."

    "Hey, wait," Lydia began. "You said you became a Pokemon trainer last week. Don't trainers get their Pokemon license at ten? Why did you start so late?"

    Emilia flushed, her cheeks becoming a bright shade of red. Unknowingly Lydia had hit a weak spot.

    "Hmph! N-no reason. I just felt like taking my time, that's all. A certain someone I know is as slow as a Squirtle!"

    "Huh?"

    "Anyway, I'm out of here. There's a Saffron City Gym Badge with my name on it!"

    Before Lydia had time to react the red knapsack she was carrying transformed into a Ditto. It's flesh oozed before morphing into a the image of a round puff-ball. Grabbing the feet of her new Jigglypuff, Emilia soared high in the air as the Ditto blew up like a balloon. Emilia flew further and further from sight.

    "Tooooo-taaaloooo!" Emilia blew Lydia a kiss. "We'll meet again, Lydia! Especially you, hottie!"

    Aidan could only watch uneasily as the girl fluttered off. As soon as Emilia was completely out of sight Lydia clenched her fists, throwing them in the air. She felt like ripping her hair out. Normally, it took a lot to make her angry. She was probably one of the most patient, calm, and easygoing person in all of Saffron. Except when it came to Emilia.

    There was a long silence.

    "Holy cow. You don't seem like the type who ever gets angry," Aidan attempted to break the ice. "That was intense."

    "I can't STAND her," she huffed. "I can't believe she's my cousin. Aunt Blue and Uncle Green are nothing like her."

    "You mean she's Green and Blue's daughter?!" Aidan gasped.

    "Yeah," Lydia sighed. "Unfortunately."

    "Sheesh, she sounds like she's a handful."

    "Yeah, she really is."

    "Don't listen to her, Lydia. Your going to be a great Pokemon trainer. You'll see. With practice, you're going to be a champ!"

    Lydia turned to face Aidan. His warm, calming demeanor was comforting. She was glad that he had let her join him on his journey. Secretly, she hoped she wasn't being a bother to him. The quest he was embarking on sounded dangerous. It was still a mystery to her why he had left her come with her, as much as she secretly wanted to from the start.

    She could only answer with a soft smile. "Glad to hear."

    "Well, now it's off to Celadon City," he smiled back. "Ready?"

    "Yeah."

    Lydia couldn't have been more ready.

    Well this chapter had a lot of activity now didn't it? It was nice to see Lydia learn some things about the world of training as well as seeing her catch her first Pokemon, that is always a good thing. I wasn't expecting to see Emilia, though she seems like a bitchier version of Blue to me xD but that's good cause it gave us a different side of Lydia's personality aside from the meek and easily excited girl that we had seen before. All in all it was a good chapter and I hope to see more.

    Chapter Four: VS Sandshrew



    Fire. Heat. Destruction. Surrounded by sea of flames, a little boy sputtered for oxygen in a cramped room. The air reeked of smoke as he stumbled through a maze of burning wood. Sweating profusely, he could feel the strength draining from his body. Desperately he searched for an exit, longing to see the relieved faces of his parents. Burnt debris from the ceiling slammed and crashed into the furniture. As a lamp suddenly fell down in front of him, the boy shrieked.


    "DADDY! MOMMY! WHERE ARE YOU?"

    Smoke began to rise. His vision was getting blurrier by the minute. Coughing and choking, he crawled in the corner of the room. Tears streamed down his face as he buried his hands over his head. He was having such a peaceful afternoon with his father and mother. They took him home, went out for reasons he couldn't remember, and never came back. Before he knew it there was a crash in the window and a burst of fire. Without warning, the world seemed desolate in an otherwise blissful life.

    The boy was exhausted. He could feel his eyelids becoming heavier and heavier. He had been trapped for hours in the burning house with no sign of hope. His breath was scarce. A wave of dizziness hit him as he slumped to the ground. His exhaustion prevented him from noticing the door swinging open. Faintly he heard the sound of thumping footsteps. The boy strained to turn his neck around, but all he could see was a shadow.

    "Hello there, little one."

    "…D-Daddy?"

    "Your parents are gone."

    "...Gone?"

    "I'm here to take care of you."

    The boy couldn't resist the strength of the cold, rough hands scooping him up. Slung over the mysterious man's shoulders, he could feel his consciousness ebbing away from him. The sight of the surrounding flames became dimmer and dimmer. Afterwards, darkness.

    "…dan."

    "…Aidan, wake up."

    "Daddy?"

    "Aidan?!"

    Aidan awoke to the sound of Lydia's voice with a fright, his face caked with sweat. Another nightmare.

    Lately, he'd been having dreams about his childhood. Strangely all that came to mind was that one scene, playing over and over like the a song on repeat. But to him it only served as a painful memory from the past. A reminder of the loneliness and bitterness that had accumulated in his heart. He was separated from his loving father and mother by a fire. And no matter how much he tried to recall his time with his parents before then, he couldn't remember. It must have been the trauma. It was as if he was chasing after something he could never reach; some faint glimmer of hope that day had been some freak accident, that his parents were still alive and out their somewhere.

    Even though his life was spared that day, the world wouldn't be the same without his parents.

    Aidan was so absorbed in his thoughts that he didn't notice Lydia hovering over his face. Her bright brown eyes reflected immediate concern. Meeting her gaze caused him to jump back and slam his head into the tree he was resting on. Moaning in pain he rubbed his temples.

    "Are you alright, Aidan?!" Lydia gasped.

    "Yeah," he sighed. "Never been better."

    "I woke up earlier and you were groaning in your sleep," she replied hurriedly. "I was really worried."

    "Don't be," he forced a grin. "I'm fine."

    "Oh, good," she giggled with delight. "Glad to hear it. Whenever your ready let's keep going. We're so close to Celadon City."

    Aidan shook the remnants of his dreams away. Never in his life had he met a person with a laugh as carefree and happy as Lydia's. Honestly he was shocked, because he'd think that someone with a past like hers that would be a major downer.

    "Hey Aidan, look. There's a huge crowd clustered around that sign there," Lydia pointed out after packing up the remainder of her belongings. "I wonder what's going on."

    "Huh. Let's check it out then."

    Aidan and Lydia pushed through the canopy of leaves that had been concealing them from the road and made their way to the bulletin board. Indeed, as Lydia noted, there was a mass of people surrounding it, so much so that Aidan or Lydia couldn't make out what they were looking at. Travelers crowded the road left and right. Many, if not all, seemed to be heading in the same direction towards the northeast.

    Lydia, now on her toes, teetered for balance as she struggled to read the board. The curiosity was eating away at her. As he watched Lydia jump up and down Aidan sighed. He tapped an elderly man who was part of the crowd on the shoulder.

    "Excuse me, but what's going on here?"

    "Why don't you know, sonny? Today begins the start of the three-day Maiden's Cape Festival!"

    Lydia's eyes sparkled with curiosity. "Did you say festival? What kind of festival?"

    "In the little town of Maiden's Cape there is a shrine of a maiden named Kaede with an old tree near a cliff. Two thousand years ago there was a war between Kanto and Johto over control of the main region of Pokearth. Soldiers that sailed overseas from Unova had settled in the new land and wanted to colonize, but inhabitants from Johto had control over them. One brave women among them named Kaede sought peace between the two regions. After a long and gruesome struggle the soldiers of Unova triumphed under the leadership of Kaede, granting them independence into what we know as Kanto today. The shrine commemorates Kaede and the soldiers who gave their lives for the sake of their people. Thanks to her Kanto and Johto were able to live in harmony. During the festival we honor the people by visiting the shrine and releasing boats with candles at the beach below."

    "Wooow," Lydia cooed. "Sounds like fun! I've never been to a festival before."

    "Me either," Aidan replied. "Well, I mean, I have…but I don't remember."

    "Don't remember?"

    "Yeah. My parents took me to one a long time ago, when I was little."

    "…Or it would have been," the man continued on. "This year the Maiden's Cape Festival is being cancelled. Someone bought out the land and wants to destroy the shrine to build a private business."

    "So does that mean the festival will be permanently cancelled?" Aidan asked.

    "Afraid so. But since the festival signifies old traditions in Kanto a lot of the locals are upset. They're all heading over to Maiden's Cape to see if they can stop the construction."

    "That's horrible," Lydia said. "Who would do such a thing?"

    "Some representative from the Sliph Cooperation was a realtor for the buyer, apparently. Tsk. Those greedy scoundrels will do anything to expand their company."

    Lydia bit her lip.

    "It's kinda strange, though. No one knows who the buyer is. The guy didn't even show his face. He just came in wearing a cloak with a huge sum of money and demanded to buy the land. When the town denied his offer he took it with Sliph. And the company pulled some strings and helped the vermin without a fight."

    Aidan crossed his arms.

    "Where can I find this Maiden's Cape? I have to go there now!"

    "Lydia…" he began.

    "Heh-heh! Never in my seventy-five years have a seen a traveler so fired up about visiting that old place," he cackled. "Just follow the crowds to the northeast and you'll get there lickety-split. Though I don't know what the point is. I'll be darned if those Sliph construction workers back off."

    "Trust me, they'll listen to what I have to say," she retorted as she stomped towards the crowds of travelers. Aidan bowed his head to thank the gentlemen and dashed after Lydia.

    Lydia gritted her teeth, pushing through pedestrians that blocked her way. There was no doubt in her mind that her father was by far the cruelest man on Pokearth. She couldn't fathom why loving Pokemon was so wrong. There were worse things the world could be doing. It was one thing if he tried to get in the way of her dreams. But to take away an honored Pokemon tradition from innocent people was another.

    "Lydia, wait!"

    Aidan caught up to her through the sea of travelers. As he grabbed her on the shoulder she remained silent.

    "Lydia, are you alright?"

    She turned to face him with a bright smile. "I'm fine! Really, I am."

    Taking a moment to contemplate she found herself gazing at the endless canvas of blue above her. Aidan remained silent as he watched her trying to fight back tears.

    "I won't let my father and this buyer get away with this," Lydia continued. Her eyes gleamed with unyielding determination. "Aidan, please. It's selfish to ask this of you while your trying to stop Team Rocket, but we've got to stop the construction at Maiden's Cape. This tree seems really precious to the villagers. If there's something I can do help the people at this village, then I want to help them."

    She paused. "It may sound strange, but in a way I kind of understand what they're going through. Taking away something that's important to those people is just like when my father tried to take away my dream. Since I'm related to him the construction workers might listen to me. And even if they don't, I want to keep trying!"

    Aidan's frown broke into a grin.

    "Who said I was stopping you?" He extended an index finger towards Lydia's chest before grabbing a Pokeball from his waist. "See that? That feeling, from deep within, is what it means to be a Pokemon trainer. The power to fight for what's right."

    "You really think so?"

    "I know so."

    Tossing the red-and-white capsule in the air Rapidash leaped from its pokeball through a stream of light. As Aidan rubbed the fur under the majestic horse's chin it whinnied in delight. He offered a hand to Lydia.

    "As long as you always try your hardest, I'll be glad to help you out. That's what friends are for!"

    Lydia couldn't have been happier that Aidan understood. "Thank you, Aidan!"

    "What that guy said is rubbing me the wrong way anyway," he frowned. "Why would someone want to destroy a famous monument to build a mansion in a place like that? It sounds kind of fishy."

    "Didn't that man say the person who bought the land didn't show his face?"

    Aidan nodded. "Yeah. And besides, it's never okay for someone to destroy an old Pokemon shrine to build some stinkin' mansion. I'm going to kick their butts!"

    "Hehe. Your silly, Aidan."

    Rapidash crooned softly. He was raring to go. Aidan proceeded to help Lydia on his back and hopped on beside her. Determined, he pumped his fist in the air.

    "Alright, Rapidash!" Aidan pointed towards the horizon. "Onward to Maiden's Cape! We're going to…to…"

    "Hm?"

    "Uh…that town…what direction are we going again?"

    Lydia nearly fell off of Rapidash. Sighing, she rubbed her temples. "Maiden's Cape is northeast of here. So we're going that way."

    Aidan chuckled. "Riiiiight. Sorry. Let's go, Rapidash!"

    It was nearly dusk when Aidan and Lydia arrived at the town of Maiden's Cape. Accurately as the man described, it was a province on a cliffside with an enormous tree that seemed to stretch to the heavens. The oak looked ancient, as if it was surrounded by a mysterious aura. Nonetheless it stood tall, full of leaves and completed untouched. Towards the center of town, a set of stairs lead to a beach at the bottom of the crevice that stretched for miles as far as the eye could see. Unfortunately so the smell of gasoline and burning wood interfered with the beautiful sight.

    Aidan and Lydia, after speaking with a few locals, made their way to the site of the construction. Men in baggy shorts and orange vests with stripes were transporting tools a few miles away from Kaede's shrine. A couple were flipping through documents; designs for the new building most likely. A huge crowd of locals paraded in a circle at the bottom of the cliff leading to the tree. Some had picket signs, others posters, while many simply waved their hands in frustration.

    "SAVE OUR TREE! SAVE OUR TREE! SAVE OUR TREE!"

    "You can't destroy a precious Kanto historical monument!"

    "Greedy Sliph bastards!"

    "You'll pay for destroying part of our town!"

    "Oh, can it!" One of the builders shouted back in disgust. "Everything's already been paid for. We're not stopping this project."

    Lydia and Aidan exchanged determined glances. They nodded to one another. Lydia marched over to a nearby construction worker and poked him on shoulder, with Aidan following behind her.

    "I'd like to speak to the head of this construction project, please." Lydia said.

    "Another local?" he sighed. "Listen, we've told you like it is. While this construction project may be sudden, we're not authorized to stop it. Maybe if I lived here I'd feel the same. But I'm just working to pay the bills."

    "But…"

    "No buts. If you want to make a scene then join the crowd. It'll get you nowhere though."

    "Listen up, you geezer," Aidan interrupted. "It just so happens that my friend here is related to the president of your company's corporate office, the very man who approved this project. So if I were you, I'd take us to him right away. I'm sure she could report all kinds of stories of what a wonderful employee you are."

    "Gaahhhhh! Okay, okay! Don't make a fuss," he leaned in closer to the children. "I'll take you to see him. Follow me."

    The construction worker lead Lydia and Aidan through the crowd to the base of Kaede's shrine. A man with wavy purple hair dressed in a business suit was surrounded by a wave of photographers. A Pokemon TV news crew was stationed in front of the tree. The newswomen was chatting away with the snooty businessman, who was adjusting his glasses in front of the cameras.

    Lydia tugged the sleeve of Aidan's jacket. "I know that man," she whispered to him. "That's Petrel, one of my father's assistants. He's on my father's board of executives at Sliph Cooperation. I only talked to him once, and he was kind of scary."

    "You said his name was Petrel?"

    "Yeah," she replied. "Why?"

    "I dunno," Aidan ruffled his bangs in thought. "For some reason I feel like I've heard that name somewhere before."

    "Do you know him?"

    "Well…not exactly. But that name sounds so familiar."

    "…So, Petrel, how do you feel about being the man responsible for tearing down the ancient Kaede war monument?" A middle-aged female news reporter shoved a microphone towards his face. "I hear a lot of people in Kanto are upset about it."

    "Well, naturally, I'm sure there are a few people that are upset about this," Petrel replied calmly. "But surely the entire region of Kanto wouldn't be against tearing this old thing down. As a representative for the Sliph Cooperation I can assure you that I'm not the only one who is in agreement. The Maiden's Cape festival is merely an excuse for the town to throw together a honkey-tonk tourist attraction to generate revenue every year. If people want to learn more about our region's history, then there are plenty of other methods of doing so. This tree is weak and dying. My client is looking for a quiet place to do his business, and Maiden's Cape is the perfect place. He can put this land to much better use."

    "A few?!" Aidan clenched his fists. "There were a ton of people who were against this, going all the way back to Saffron! I outta barge in there and teach this moron a lesson!"

    Aidan snatched a Pokeball from his belt. He was poised to attack.

    "Wait, Aidan," Lydia held him back. "I'll try talking to him afterwards. He might listen to me."

    "What business is your client hoping to conduct?" the reporter continued. The look in her eyes reflected her hunger for some juicy information.

    "My client has requested to keep that information private," Petrel responded. Lydia noticed a sly smile spreading across his dimples, revealing his yellow, crooked teeth. She shivered.

    "And who is this mystery client we've heard so much about?"

    "That is also confidential."

    Lydia swore the grin plastered on his face was full of malice. She remembered as a little girl his bizarre facial expressions had scared the heck out of her. Even someone her age could figure out that Petrel was hiding something; that or he was generally a twisted man. Absorbed in her personal thoughts, Lydia didn't notice Aidan making a mad dash for the camera. Making haste, she ran after him.

    "I can't reveal much yet, but I assure you that it will benefit all the citizens of Maiden's Cape," Petrel turned towards the cameras. "One small sacrifice for the greater good is necessary, I say."

    "Ah, I see," the reporter nodded sullenly. It didn't look like she was going to get the ground-breaking story show was aiming for. "Well, thank you, Mr. Petrel. And so you have it, folks. The festival of the Maiden's Cape festival is no more. Looks like we're all going to have to hit the history books this year. I'm Marlene from the Pokemon News at 5. Tune in next week where-"

    "You'll destroy this Pokemon Shrine over my dead body!" Aidan shouted, darting in front of the cameras. He flashed a Pokeball in front of Archer's face. "If you want to do it, then you have to challenge me first!"

    "Well look at what we have here, citizens of Kanto!" The reporter eagerly motioned the cameraman to face the equipment in her direction. "A brave challenger has come to fight for the sake of the festival! That's one dedicated Pokemon lover!"

    "Aidan, wait!" Lydia made a mad dash into the scene. Panting heavily she rested her arms on her knees. "Let…m-me…ha-handle this…"

    Now the reporter was dumbfounded. "And's who's this?"

    "Hmph." Petrel sneered. "Your quite overconfident for a young man. Challenging a Sliph Cooperation executive like myself would be a waste of your time. Obviously there's a clear difference in our power levels."

    "Why you-"

    "Mr. Petrel, please," Lydia interrupted. She bowed her head. "Please excuse him."

    "Lydia, what are you saying?"

    Petrel froze at the sound of Lydia's name.

    "L-Lady Lydia…is that you?"

    Lydia knew that if she revealed herself on television it would be a bad thing, but thanks to Aidan the both of them had already been captured on screen. All the better if her father was watching, because she was going to prove him wrong about her leaving to become a Pokemon trainer, and; most importantly, about approving the construction to destroy the town's shrine. Reluctantly she turned toward the cameras.

    "Yes, it's me. I am Lydia Oak, daughter of Axel Oak, president of Sliph Cooperation!"

    The crowd below gasped. The president's daughter had a reputation for being stuck-up, sheltered, and spoiled, so it was a shock to see her out in the open. It seems the rumors about her were untrue.

    "Where have you been?!" Petrel demanded. "Your father has been worried sick. And what's worse, your with this filthy Pokemon trainer…"

    "Don't talk about Aidan that way," Lydia shot back. "And that's not your concern. What your doing here isn't right. Please, Mr. Petrel, don't destroy this monument. This festival is important to these people, and to all Pokemon lovers alike!"

    Petrel licked his lips. Aidan observed him carefully as his beady eyes made contact with Lydia's. The lack of information he had given the press confirmed his suspicions. There was definitely something weird going on around here. The name Petrel was sliding on the tip of his tongue. It was so familiar to him, yet he couldn't remember it. Whether or not it was related to his quest, he couldn't be sure. The fact Lydia's family knew this guy kept him off the hook. But he wouldn't put it past Team Rocket to pull some shady stunt like this. Archer wanted anything to do with Pokemon or its history to aid their plans.

    "I would listen to you, Lydia, but I'm only acting under your father's orders," Petrel said awkwardly as he rubbed his hands together. "You'd have to speak to him about it. If you want, I could take you home."

    "No," she said firmly.

    "Come again?"

    "It's like I said. No. I'm not going to let him control me anymore. You can tell my father I'm not coming home until I finish my Pokemon journey."

    "But Lady Lydia-"

    Petrel was cut off by the beeping ringtone on his communicator. Taking the device from the outer pocket of his briefcase he scrutinized the message carefully. Reading it, his eyes widened. It didn't take him long for his face to break into a coy smile.

    He gently placed his right hand on her shoulder. "Alright, my lady. I'll tell you what. I'll tell the construction workers to hold off for tonight. Tomorrow morning, If you and your friend can defeat me in a Pokemon battle, then I'll cancel the project and leave the shrine alone. How does that sound?"

    "Really?" Lydia shook his hand ecstatically. "Wow, thank you so much, Mr. Petrel! It's a deal."

    "No trouble at all," he smiled, once again revealing his crooked teeth. "I would be a fool to deny a request of my boss's daughter."

    Petrel shot a slippery grin at Aidan. Taken aback, he pushed himself between the businessman and Lydia. Co-worker of Lydia's father or not, by now there was no doubt in his mind Petrel was up to something shady.

    "You stay away from her," Aidan snapped. "If there's anyone your going to face in a battle, it's going to be me."

    "Heh." Petrel smirked. "I look forward to it, boy."

    Petrel paraded down the hill in a flash, waving a hand to make way through the excited crowd of pedestrians. He was in no mood to speak with anyone else after a stressful day of answering questions. Marlene and the remainder of the photographers quickly hurried after him, flashing their cameras and demanding additional news for the story. Lydia, overjoyed, turned to Aidan.

    "We did it!" she cheered. "That wasn't so bad. Now we can save the shrine! I guess Petrel isn't as mean as I thought he was."

    "I don't buy it," he grumbled. "Petrel is definitely onto something."

    "Aw, don't say that. He said he'd leave the shrine alone if we won. Doesn't get any more understanding than that," she paused. "Anyway, we should probably rest up and get ready for tomorrow's match. Just think of how fun the festival will be afterwards!"

    "There's no way I'll lose to the likes of him," Aidan retorted. He could feel the blood coursing through his veins. The fact that Petrel's identity was on the tip of his tongue was bothering him even more.

    "Hey Aidan, do you mind helping me train Bijou a little tonight? I want to be ready for tomorrow, just in case."

    Aidan nodded. "Sure. We can battle each other to teach it some good attacks."

    "Okay," she smiled brightly. "Let's do our best!"

    "You got it," he smiled back.

    Lydia and Aidan began heading towards the stairwell leading to the beach. The crowds had slowly dissipated from the scene and Petrel and the reporters were nowhere to be found. Aidan felt himself relax. As suspicious as Petrel was no threats were made against him or Lydia, so maybe he was just being paranoid.

    "…Ple…ase…elp…"

    Suddenly Aidan felt a powerful surge of pain radiating in his temples. Immediately he clamped his hands on his head for relief, but he was surprised when it only lasted for a second. Confused, he shook his head.

    "Hey Lydia, did you hear something?"

    "Huh?"

    "I dunno," he stammered. "I thought I heard a voice."

    "A voice?"

    "Yeah. Of a women."

    "Oh," she blinked. "Sorry. I didn't hear anything."

    "Never mind. It's fine."

    Aidan rolled his eyes. It must have been all in his head.

    Or so he thought.

    Night had swiftly fallen in Maiden's Cape. As the sun set the otherwise cloudless sky had been splashed with many yellow balls of light. Sitting in the cosmos they twinkled gaily, completely undisturbed by the land below them. A soft, cool breeze quietly shook the town, the waves gently lapping across the shore that spread endlessly for miles. The ancient tree on cliffside, still untouched, continued to bask in an eerie glow.

    Despite the serenity of the evening, a man with a black vest had decided to leave town. A cape hung around his head in order to conceal his face. It was crucial he wasn't discovered. Regardless, he had been walking in the outskirts of Maiden's Cape for quite some time. As he entered deeper into the forest, he paused to shuffle through his briefcase, where he then proceeded to take out his Xtransceiver. After taking a brief look at his surroundings, he punched in a set of numbers and waited with baited breath. With a few rings the phone clicked.

    "I was getting impatient," a husky voice barked on the end of the line. "I thought you'd never call."

    "My apologies, boss. It took me longer than expected."

    "Is everything going according to plan?"

    "Yes, sir," the man grinned slyly. "It's just like you said. The President's daughter is here, along with some brat."

    "The boy plays us for fools. I know his true identity."

    "What?!" the man nearly dropped his Xtransceiver. "Boss…then that means, he's…"

    "I know who he is. I was hoping to use him for our plans, but it seems after all these years I have no power over him," the voice paused. "Stubbornness runs in the family."

    "What are your orders then?"

    "I want you to capture that girl alive, and bring her to me. Destroy anybody who suspects you."

    "And the boy?"

    "...Simple."

    A slight cackle could be heard from the opposite end of the receiver.

    "Eliminate him."

    The man snapped the Xtransceiver shut as the moonlight slipped through the trees. A ray of light caught his face directly, revealing a grinning pair of crooked teeth.

    "You can do it, Bijou! Try it one more time! Use Faint Attack on Sandshrew!"

    Sandshrew stood its ground, waiting for the attack. Bijou hissed softly as she felt the power rising through her body. Now brimming with a shade of color as dark as the night sky, the cream-colored cat lunged for the sandy mouse with open claws. In one sweep she had successfully closed in on her target. However, before the Meowth could land a critical hit, Sandshrew quickly dived in the sand to evade the blow. Shortly after he popped out Aidan returned him to his pokeball. Lydia scooped up Bijou and twirled her in a circle.

    "YESSSSSSSS! WE DID IT!" She giggled happily. "You were amazing, Bijou! WOOO!"

    "I think you should put her down, Lydia," Aidan slapped his hands across his mouth. He was trying so hard to contain his laughter, with no avail. Somehow Lydia had the funniest way of showing her love for Pokemon.

    "She looks dizzy."

    "Whoops!" Lydia blushed. After putting Bijou on the sand Lydia watched the frazzled Meowth teeter in dizziness. It seemed she didn't like to be held much. Apologetically she rubbed behind Bijou's ears. The cat purred.

    "I'm sorry, Bijou," she clasped her hands together. "I was just so proud of you. I'll try to be more gentle next time."

    "Meooooowww!" Bijou cried.

    Lydia returned the Meowth to its pokeball. Afterwards, she yawned. "Wheeew! I'm so tired. Training can be a lot of work."

    "But you love it, right?"

    "Yup."

    "I'm glad to see how enthusiastic you are about it," Aidan replied, unpacking a sleeping bag from his knapsack. "Training your Pokemon is the best part of the experience. A lot of people complain or say it's boring, but in actuality they're missing out. You and your Pokemon form strong bonds that way."

    Lydia proceeded to do the same. "That's what my mom said too." She paused for a moment to think about the past. "There wasn't a day when she didn't talk about Pokemon. She loved breeding them and playing with them in the lab. If only I could show her how far I've come."

    "I bet she's really proud of you, Lydia."

    "Yeah."

    Lydia continued to unpack her backpack. As she did Aidan found himself taking a good look at her. Normally her brown eyes sparkled when she was excited, but tonight he could see the ocean reflected in her dark hues, making them stand out. Her long chestnut hair, half tied in two small buns, was blowing softly in the calm ocean breeze. Aidan rubbed his brow. He wasn't sure if there was sand in his eyes, but he could see she was surrounded in light. Somehow the moon seemed to bathe her tiny figure in brilliance. He watched silently as her lips crinkled into a light smile. Lydia was actually pretty cute. As she suddenly turned to face him, he flinched.

    "Aidan? Are you feeling okay?" Lydai's expression remained as innocent as ever.

    Aidan wanted to knock himself on the head. His cheeks were burning.

    "Um, yeah. I'm fine."

    "Your face is all red. Do you have a fever?"

    "No! No. I, uh, I'm just a little dizzy, that's all. Yeah. I think I'm going to get some water," he stood up.

    Lydia blinked. She cocked her head as she watched him scurry away awkwardly towards the pier. It was confusing how all of a sudden Aidan seemed sick. He didn't appear to be earlier in the day. She took a moment to contemplate. Untying her buntails, Lydia shrugged it off. It must have been the signs of a hayfever or something. It was pretty hot, even for spring.

    After power-walking what seemed like a mile Aidan slumped to his knees on the rough surface of the pier. Against the rocky wall in front of him was a built-in water bubbler, while next to it was a set of stairs leading to the cliffside with the shrine. Aidan swiftly got up, ripped off his jacket, turned the fountain on and splashed water in his face. The cold water stung, but it made him feel calmer. Right now he wanted to be anywhere but with Lydia. It wasn't like him to let his guard down that easily.

    Wiping off his face with his hands, he picked up his jacket and began to head back to the beach. But something stopped him.

    "Help me…Help me…."

    Aidan slammed his fists over his ears. His head was throbbing. This time he was sure he heard a voice. It didn't seem as scratchy as before, though. This time he could clearly make out the voice of a young women. The warm sound seemed to echo in his mind, almost like a melody.

    "Help me…I'm here…Up here…"

    Aidan felt himself drawn to its power. Slowly, without realizing it, the ambience of the night began to slip away from him. In his mind all he could hear was the girl's voice, beckoning him to come. It was smooth, gentle, and comforting; almost as sweet as honey. His consciousness was ebbing away. All he wanted to do was follow the sound. He began to climb the stairs leading up to the cliff.

    Lydia, meanwhile, was lying on her sleeping bag on the beach. She was losing herself in the clusters of stars above her in the vast, night sky, waiting for Aidan to come back. For some reason it was taking him a long time. He must have been really thirsty. Seeing as she was bored out of her mind, she decided it would be fun to sneak up on him and surprise him. "That ought to cheer him up," she thought. Giggling, Lydia grabbed her pokeballs just in case and headed over.

    But when Lydia made it to the pier, Aidan was nowhere to be found.

    "That's weird." she said aloud. "This is the only pier on the beach. Where could he be?"

    Lydia turned to face the stone wall. There was a water bubbler next to the set of stairs they had climbed down to get to the beach. As she took a closer look, her eyes widened to find Aidan's jacket sprawled on the floor. Scooping it up she ran to the edge of the pier facing the sand.

    "AIDAN! WHERE ARE YOU?"

    Her voice echoed into the emptiness of the night. No response.

    "Could something have happened to him?" she exclaimed. "No, it can't be. Aidan is really strong."

    Panic-stricken, she whipped her head in all directions. If this was Aidan's idea of a practical joke, it wasn't funny by a long shot. She glanced up the stairs to Kaede's shrine. Faintly she could see a figure making their way to the top. She sighed in relief. It must have been Aidan wanting to look at the monument.

    Lydia climbed the tower of stairs after him. By the time she got to the top she was completely winded. Leaning on the edge of the railing, she took a brief respite before heading towards the shrine. Relief swept over her as she saw Aidan standing near the edge of the cliff.

    "A…Aidan…." she panted, resting her hands on her knees. "There you are. You were taking a while to come back, so I followed you. I hope everything's okay."

    Aidan didn't respond. He continued to walk past Kaede's shrine.

    "Um, I hope your not mad at me for asking you to train with me. I didn't know you were getting sick. I hope your going to be okay. I can battle Petrel tomorrow if you want. Thanks to you I'm a lot stronger now!"

    Still no response. Lydia gulped. He must have been really mad.

    "I'm really sorry, Aidan. I should have noticed you weren't feeling well," she bowed her head. "Do you think you can forgive me?"

    Aidan, completely unaware of Lydia's voice, was now moving in towards edge of the cliff. The roar of the crashing waves could be heard below him.

    "A-Aidan? That's really dangerous!" Lydia cried. "Get away from there! Can't you hear me?"

    In the back of his mind, Aidan could hear someone faintly calling to him. The voice sounded familiar, but he couldn't remember who it belonged to. In a daze he looked to the sky above him, where he saw a young woman with long, flowing golden hair. Her white gown fluttered in the wind, and her arms were spread out wide.

    "Who are you?" Aidan said lazily. "Are you the one who was speaking to me?"

    "You don't recognize me, little one?" the wispy voice replied. "It's been so long. I've missed you so much."

    The woman's voice made Aidan feel extremely drowsy. He struggled to keep his eyes focused on the figure above him. At her remark, his eyes opened a little.

    "M-mother?"

    "Yes. It's me, Aidan. I've missed you so much."

    "But…but how?"

    "I'm here now," she echoed. "I'm here. Come closer, Aidan. I want to see your beautiful face."

    Lydia gasped at the sight of Aidan talking to himself. She recalled earlier in the day him mentioning the voice of a women. She froze as everything clicked. There was no way a tree could last for so many years unless someone…or something, was protecting it. As much as she didn't want to believe the conclusion she came to, Aidan's strange behavior was all the confirmation she needed. Lydia felt a sudden chill creep up her spine. No, it couldn't be. Ever she was little she was terrified of…it. Repressed memories began to show themselves. It just couldn't be what she was thinking of. But the terrible notion fogging up her brain made her want to scream with terror. It couldn't be!

    ...But it was.

    Ghosts. Rather, a ghost. Kaede's ghost. Angry and hungry for vengeance, she possessed and eliminated anyone who poised a threat to her home. And for whatever reason, she was after Aidan.

    "Aidan!" Lydia shouted. "Whoever your talking to, don't listen! That person is trying to hurt you!"

    The sound of Lydia's voice began to break the hold the spirit had on Aidan's mind. Aidan winced. His head began to ache.

    Aidan, still sluggish, tried to turn around. "Huh? Who is that?"

    "Don't listen to her, Aidan," the spirt cooed to him. "She's trying to distract you. Come. I want to hold you in my arms. I've missed you."

    Try as he may, Aidan couldn't resist the sweet sound of the ghost. Without warning it drowned out Lydia's screams of concern.

    "Aidan."

    Aidan lifted his foot over the edge.

    Lydia was fighting back a flood of tears. "Aidan, DON'T!"

    "Come."

    He leaned over the edge.

    "AIDAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAN!"

    First of all was this based on that anime episode xD cause the location is at about the same point now that I think about it, plus the whole thing with the spirit reminded me of it.

    Seems like there's some conspiracy going on now that Petrel has been revealed to be working for Silph Co. which just makes me more curious as to what Team Rocket might be planning. We also got to see another side of Lydia plus we learned a bit more regarding how Aiden ended up in Team Rocket, now I just wonder who his parents were considering the way he was treated by the person Petrel was talking to on the phone.

    To be honest when I first started the chapter it looked really long xD but you have a real knack at grasping the emotions of characters and describing them very well and the way your action develops it makes it really easy to picture, you apply just the right amount of description to things without making it overflowing. So when I finally finished the chapter I actually felt like I wanted more xD and that's good, really good in fact so I would definitely keep going with this fic if I were you.

    Yuuuuuup xD It was. I really loved that episode and wanted to put my own original flare on it. What's going to happen (and what has happened) will be completely different though; Kaede was based off the spirit in the episode, and there was no war story in it either.

    Thank you so much for the reviewing every chapter Flaze, it's nice to know that someone is interested in reading this story and that I have some good points to my writing. I want to work on my weak points too. It's been a lot of fun writing my first fic, and there's more to come!

    After reading the first 4 chapters, I can safely say that I enjoyed reading them, even if I haven't read the Pokémon Special manga series due to lack of availability here in Denmark (I did do some research about them beforehand, though).

    Description-wise, it is great when it comes to show the various character's expression, and even if the first 2 chapters lacked somewhat when it comes to description to the environments and the characters, I started to see improvements on that front starting with chapter 3. Continue improve on that.

    Lydia seems like an interesting person, a bit naive, but still very likable. She still has a lot to learn when it comes to Pokémon training, but you've managed to establish her passion and reasoning for abandoning her home. While her father has shown to be very unreasonable, I suspect it's because of misguided love for his daughter after what happened to Lydia's mother. Whether you're going to go deeper on that subject we'll have to wait and see.

    Aidan is also an interesting character to me, both for his personality and the way he handles things. I can understand that his roughness at times comes from his time in Team Rocket, though I think you dropped the bomb too early for it to have any effect, so to speak. And as for the possible romantic relationship between Aidan and Lydia, you should be careful not hasten things. A couple of hints here and there doesn't hurt, though.

    Plot-wise, you've established the two character's goals, which is good, but I also like that you've made a side-story in the 4th chapter, keeping things varied and interesting and also opening up possibilities of character growth. Keep up the good work.

    Thank you sir, I really appreciate you elite's taking a time to read my story haha! I will take everything you said into mind for future chapters. Describing environments are definitely my weakness. And as you and Flaze said, I agree wholeheartedly I dropped the bomb on Aidan's backstory .___. It was a challenge how I could introduce the main plot-line without doing so, but now I see it could have been used later. I might go back and re-write certain sections.

    What a lovely story! I really enjoy reading this, not to mention I love the characters. You do an awesome job delving into the character's emotions and thoughts which is more difficult in 3rd person. Hm, speaking of emotion, I'm liking that little romance you're creating between Lydia and Aidan. I have seen many upon many fan fictions rush any romance within it, (*loud obvious cough* mainly BlackxWhite fics) so just be wary of the way you pace the romance. Though, as you said in an earlier post that Lydia would notice this romance in the final chapter so that sounds pretty good. Again, be sure to watch out about that so it isn't Aidan desperately trying to get her love. I would feel so awful for him reading that!

    Secondly, the description. I would know, as I am terrible with this myself. Due to this, I can't really provide solid help without sounding like some hypocrite. Though I can say this, the issues seem to lie in describing the setting and other miscellaneous details.

    Otherwise it's pretty sweet to see another PokeSpe fic on this website! I can't wait to see what happens with this! *eagerly awaits update*
