Yeah...it's me again with another TBS fic, again. This plot bunny popped in my head in the middle of the night when reading the ToxicBoltshipping thread. After many headdesks and brainstorming, this what was spawned. I rather like it but it may have errors. Please inform me if you see any!
Koga often enjoyed the peace and quiet when Surge wasn't around. Matis Surge is his very loud and American boyfriend who often comes over to visit like twice a week. In contrast to Koga's stoic nature, Surge was very outgoing, loud and electrifying. He often comes off rude at first glace but once you get to know the American, you can see his heart is at the right place.
Usually Koga expected a booming voice calling him from the main gate anytime soon. He would get annoyed and purposely not answer. But all he heard was his phone ringing in the kitchen. He rose up from the porch and went to where the phone was and anwsered.
"Hey! Koga it's me! Surge!" a loud voice basically screamed into the phone.
"...I could tell by the ringing in my ears, Matis." Koga replied.
"Oh ha ha Koga." Surge replied. "Just wanted to check up on you and Janine for today since I can't come over today. My gym tech been on the fritz lately and I've been working my ass off trying to fix it."
Koga made a face, probably a disappointed look but it faded away instantly. Koga sighed and said, "Why must you have all this complicated machines in your gym. A Pokemon gym should be simple and to the point."
"Bullshit! Your gym, well Janine's gym is FAR from simple. I nearly broke my nose walking into an invisible wall!"
"That teaches the trainers how to overcome obstacles that they can not see. Those who fail are merely simpleton fools." Koga snorted out.
"Well you weren't calling me that the last time I was here..." Surge said devilishly in a whisper which made Koga blush.
"Well that was a month ago..." Koga started
"You know what, I'll take a break and come over today! What do you say?"
Koga mood lightened a bit but he hid it as he replied, "You're an adult, you can do whatever you want."
"Heh. So I'll see you later?"
With that Koga hung up the phone. It had been nearly half a month since Surge last visited due complications of his gym. At first it was fine for Koga since the gym and his home would be as quiet as it used to before Surge was there and he would be able to focus on various things. After a week Koga noticed how empty the place felt without Surge around, which was quite similar to the same feeling he had when his wife died. Ever since then while not willing to admit it, he looked forward to Surge's calls.
At the moment Janine walked in, heading for the fridge. She opening it and grabbed a water bottle and headed towards her father.
"That was Uncle Surge right?" She asked.
"Yes. He said he's coming over today." Koga answered. Janine face lit up afterward.
"Really? It's being a long time since Uncle Surge came by! I guess you're happy too, Father."
"Humph! It's doesn't matter if he comes or not." Koga replied as he turned his back on Janine.
"Soooo why are you blushing Father?" Janine asked while smiling. Koga ignored her and continued to hide his blush from her but he knew that she can see though his facade.
"Don't you have a Gym battle to work on?" He asked, changing the subject.
"Not today. I plan to read the old scrolls and learn a new ninja technique today" Janine responded. "I'm pretty good with the transform tech but I want to prefect another ninja move..."
Janine then left the kitchen to start her training while Koga went out to the porch for some air.
An hour passed as Koga awaited for Surge to come over. He had made some tea to drink and was sipping some when he heard a large knock on the door. He immediately went to the door to answer but as he came closer, he started to hear a commotion and some laughter. He turned the doorknob and suddenly jump back as the door busted open with two guys falling on the floor. Koga recognized Surge instantly with his blond spiky hair and large toned body but didn't recognize the other. He had brown hair and spoke in a Kansai accent. Surge instantly got up and dusted himself off.
"Hey Koga! Miss me?" Surge cried as he pecked Koga in the cheek.
Koga didn't respond and asked, "Who's your friend?"
"You don't recognize Bill the PokeManiac?" Surge gasped. "He's pretty well known around Japan for making the Pokemon Storage System. I was pretty sure you knew of him since you lived in Japan all you life."
Bill blushed and responded, "Well I don't think I'm that well known. Other much better people made my System better like Bebe and...Lanette."
Bill bowed to Koga to greet him and Surge suddenly wrapped Bill in a headlock.
"You don't give yourself much credit Bill! You CREATED the whole damn thing! You changed the whole Pokemon world with it!" Surge said while giving him a light noogie.
"Well I guess you're right Surge." Bill laugh as he was freed from Surge's grip.
"So how do you know Bill, Matis" Koga asked suddenly
"Matis? That's your first name Surge? Ha!" Bill laughed again
"Kooooga...I asked you to call me Surge..." Surge whined
"Humph! Just answer my question."
"Me and Bill go WAY back! I met him when I first became Gym Leader as he help me out repairing my Gym long ago." Surge answered as he put Bill into anther headlock. "Since my Gym is on the fritz, I asked him to come and help!"
"I'm pretty sure you're better than me in that kind of stuff, Matis." Bill said and Surge gave him a harder noogie while yelling something about not calling him that.
Koga just stared at the two with an unreadable look. Was Surge always like this to Bill? He doesn't know why their friendship is bothering him so much.
"Oh yeah! While we passed by the stores in Fuchsia, there was a new Ice Cream parlor opened today!" Surge exclaimed "How about we all go out for some ice cream?"
"That's sounds good! I love ice cream!" Bill said. "How about you Koga?"
"No thanks. I don't like sweets." Koga said. "Plus I'm going to watch over Janine with her training today so I'm pretty busy."
Surge looked at Koga with concern. "Anything wrong Koga?"
"No. Not really."
Surge looked at him and sighed. "Seems like Koga isn't coming then. We'll be back later, come on Bill."
Surge pecked Koga in the cheek again and started walking to the city area with Bill. Koga started to close the door but heard Bill say something.
"Hey Surge. I gotta tell you something."
"What is it?"
Bill blushed and said, "It's kinda personal, I'll tell you when we get there.."
"Really now? I wonder? Hehehe"
The two became out of reach for Koga to hear to his chagrin. He must know what Bill is talking about. Bill is WAY to chummy to Matis to his liking and they go to an ice cream place to talk about something personal? Koga thought about it for a few seconds.
A few moments later, Janine comes from the training rooms responding to her father calling her.
"...let's take a walk to the city." He said while not facing her.
"Um...OK. Lemme get ready firs-" Janine started but suddenly was pulled outside by Koga. "Hey! I'm not ready yet!"
"Sorry but this is more important."
Janine decided not to argue but wondered how this would end.
End of Chapter 1! R&R please!
