A black and white world
Love and Lum Berries
I was dared to do this. Consider it a side story to Valentines Pie
The scent of pie was heavy in the air. Pikachu sniffed the breeze and cooed happily. Since his time in Houen, he had gotten quite fond of Lum Berries, and couldn't wait to have a taste of it in a nice tasty crust.
Some of the other creatures on the preserve were gathered by the window, until Delia's Mr. Mime leaned out and batted them away with a broom. Pikachu giggled to himself, and started around the side of the building...
...only to run right into a Meowth.
Not just any Meowth. Oh no, nothing could be ordinary, Pikachu figured. It had to be *that* Meowth.
They stood there for a moment, staring at each other, neither knowing quite what to do when faced with his rival. Pikachu charged a half-hearted spark, but waited for Meowth to make the first move.
But the cat just stood there, staring at him with a faint blush across his tan face.
Wait a moment, Meowth was blushing? Pikachu cocked his head, ceasing the charge. "Chaa?" he asked.
"...uh yeah..." Meowth muttered, a hand behind his head. "So...uh...how's things?"
It was such a startling question, the sheer normalacy of it, that Pikachu nearly fell over. "Pika?"
"...I brought ya somethin'," Meowth continued, producing a Lum Berry from behind his back. "Found 'em in a big bag out back...I know ya like 'em..."
Pikachu eyed him suspiciously, but took the berry anyway, which seemed to relieve the cat greatly.
"So...uh...it's Valentines Day, eh?" Meowth ground his heel into the dirt. "Yeah..."
"...I got you this too!" Meowth drew out something else, a piece of paper decorated in much the same way the pieces of paper Ash was giving out.
Pikachu looked at it. There were some strange scribbles on it, like words, only written very badly, and a little symbol that he recognized as a 'heart'.
He looked up, about to ask Meowth what this meant, but the cat had run off.
"Chaaaa..." Pikachu sighed. He was glad to let this 'Valentine's Day' go over his head.

That is the most adorable, sweet, wonderful little fic I've ever read! Aiiiiii! It was written perfectly, Pikachu's suspicion, Meowth's nervousness, how the little rodent didn't even really get the idea of Valentine's Day... *sigh* I'm saving this one, to keep!
