Wonderful Tonight (AAMayL One-Shot Valentine’s Day Special) Rated: U

A/N: Inspired by the song ‘Wonderful Tonight’ by Eric Clapton

It was night time, 14th of February, Valentine’s Day.

There was supposed to be an evening event for Valentine’s Day in Lilycove City of the Hoenn Region but it got cancelled due to bad weather, which was raining. Ash and May were inside their borrowed room of the pokemon centre for the night while their friends, Max and Pikachu were getting some food for the night’s dinner while their other friend, Brock was in another location of the centre, probably sulking because of the cancellation.

The room had four separate beds, one for each of the group, on one side of the room and a number of entertainment systems such as a hi-fi. Ash and May were looking outside of the window, watching the downpour of the rain.

They wanted to go to that party but for different reasons. Ash wanted to be there for the food while May wanted to go there to find someone special to be with for the night.

Ash knew that May wanted someone to dance with and thought that no stupid weather would stop a special day like this one. He walked over to the hi-fi system and searched for a CD with some good songs that could make May happy.

He found a good CD and placed it in the hi-fi. A slow love song started playing, catching May’s attention. “Hey,” she said with a small smile on her face. “I love this song.”

“You, er… wanna dance?” Ash asked nervously, bowing to her politely.

“Oh… thank you,” May said blushing slightly, also bowing back.

They both clasped hands and moved in close for their slow dancing position as a famous singer started to sing the following lyrics.

It's late in the evening; she's wondering what clothes to wear
She puts on her makeup and brushes her long blonde hair
And then she asks me, “Do I look all right?”
And I say, “Yes, you look wonderful tonight.”


As they held on closely to each other while slow dancing to the music, May closed her eyes and pictured herself going to the party that was cancelled that night. In her mind, she was wearing a red dress with red high heeled shoes, along with long gloves on each hand. She then pictured herself slowly dancing with random people, one by one, until she thought about the one person that was dancing with her at that very moment.

We go to a party and everyone turns to see
This beautiful lady that's walking around with me
And then she asks me, “Do you feel all right?”
And I say, “Yes, I feel wonderful tonight.”


Still holding closely onto Ash, she felt a wonderful feeling of warmth and pleasure coming from him as they continued to dance slowly. She was still picturing herself dancing with him, who was wearing a tuxedo, until they looked in each other’s eyes as their faces slowly moved in until their lips pressed.

I feel wonderful because I see
The love light in your eyes
And the wonder of it all
Is that you just don't realize how much I love you


In reality, the Valentine’s Day event party was cancelled because of the rain, she wasn’t wearing the beautiful dress, no one was there to see them dance and no kisses were made. Despite all that, she felt just as happy because she was dancing with the teen that she held closely to her heart.

She remembered all the great things that he had done for her in the past and all the great and bad moments they had since they first met. He supported her throughout many adventures; many times when she participated in pokemon contests as pokemon coordinator and that meant a lot to her.

It's time to go home now and I've got an aching head
So I give her the car keys and she helps me to bed
And then I tell her, as I turn out the light
I say, “My darling, you were wonderful tonight.”


Along with the song, she wanted the dance with him to never end.

But as the song did, they both looked at each other’s eyes. “You okay, May?” Ash asked with curiosity in his eyes, looking at May’s blushing face.

“Yeah… I’m feeling wonderful tonight,” May replied, letting out a small relaxing sigh.

Oh my darling, you were wonderful tonight.


END! Happy Valentine’s Day, people!
