I looked out the window of our small house. Currently the window is being pattered with rain drops. I sighed, and tapped my foot.
“Mom, I’m bored.”
“I can’t make the rain stop, honey.” she said. “Your dad will be here soon.”
This improves my mood slightly, but doesn’t stop my boredom. My name is Timmy Talon. I have blue eyes, and blond hair. I have white skin and a slight tan. Today I’m wearing a green T-shirt and brown plants. We live on the outskirts of Rustboro City. It’s a big city with large corporations, and skyscrapers. We live in a small house, with three bedrooms, and one bathroom. I’m an only child, so I have no one to play with. Well, I have Taillow, but I can’t play with her inside. Mom says she makes a big mess when we play. I may have something to do with the time we broke mom’s plates. My mom has brown hair, blue eyes. She likes to wear aprons and dresses all the time. Currently she’s doing the dishes.
I go over to the couch and sit down on it. I lean back against the couch. Taillow comes over and lands on my head. She has blue feathers on her back, and on the back of her wings. Her belly is white, as are the underside of the wings, while her face and upper chest are red. She has one yellow beak, with two gray eyes right above it. Her tail is two sharp feathers which are also blue. She had black claws, with yellow nails.
She hops off of my head and on to my lap. She looks at me and makes cooing sound. I reach my hand down and pet her. It’s better then doing nothing I could charge a battery with how much I pet her. Suddenly, I hear the door opening and I jump off the couch and run to the door. I see my dad walking in. I run to him, and try to jump on him. My dad has blond hair, and green eyes. He’s wearing a brown overcoat, with black pants, and a white shirt.
“Hey kid,” he said as he picked me up and ruffled my hair. “Were you good today?”
“I was!” I said as he started taking his coat off.
“Honey,” mom said. “You may not want to take that coat off.”
“Why’s that?” my dad asks
“We need some herbs,” she says “Would you mind going to Miss Rosalie to get them?
“Sure,” he says “I’ll just go now.”
“Can I go?” I ask, “Please! Please! I’ll be good! I’ll take Tallow with me too!”
“If your dad says it’s ok,” mom said. “And if you take an umbrella.”
“I’m good for it,” dad says “Get an umbrella and we can go.”
I graved a blue umbrella and ran outside. I opened the umbrella once I got outside.
“Come on dad!” I said “let’s go!” as I started walking down the street. Miss Rosalie lives a little out of the city, and has a huge herb garden. After I walk for a few seconds I feel a light weight on my head. I feel it vibrate, and I flinch as water droplets fall onto me. It was Taillow. She must have gotten wet while flying onto my head. I decide not to shake her off; it would just tick her off.
“Wait up kid!” dad said. “Wear only halfway there!”
This was true. I had a habit of running ahead of people, and we were only halfway there. We had just left the suburbs of Rustboro and were walking down a gravel road. We had entered the forest. It was a lush forest, with many trees, flowers and pokemon. Not any Pokemon came out to look at us. They do that sometimes. The rain stopped, and dad took of his coat, and laid it on his arm.
“I’ll take your umbrella,” he said as he pointed at the umbrella. I handed it to him and he placed the umbrella on this arm, hanging it by the handle. We walked on, and in a few minutes we where at Miss Rosalie’s house. Taillow had jumped of my head, and was flying around in the air. We walked up to the house, to find Miss Rosalie out by her door. Miss Rosalie was in her late thirties. She has black hair, and brown eyes. She’s wearing blue jeans and a red plaid shirt. I hear that she has workers help her in the gardens, but they would have all gone home by now.
“Hi boys,” Miss Rosalie said “What can I get you today?”
“I have a list,” dad said “Let’s go inside and talk about it. Is it ok if Timmy looks around your gardens?”
I cross my fingers. I’ve been allowed to see her gardens before, and had caused no damage.
“As long as he’s careful,” Miss Rosalie said. “Some of my plants have been attacked by something. If you find it, I’ll be grateful.”
I nodded I would have Taillow with me. So I figured I would be safe. I went off to see the gardens, and dad and Miss Rosalie when inside. The gardens were huge. She has three different sections, one that was more of an orchard, with large trees that had fresh fruit and lots of berry bushes. Then there was the herb garden, filled with countless herds. Basil, oregano, and parsley were among the ones I knew, but there were many more. Finally there was the flower garden. It was filled to the brim with flowers of many colors. Reds, blues, and yellows moved in a wave of color as the wind blew. It took my breath away. Heck, it could take anyone’s breath away. All three of the sections had gravel paths running thru them, allowing for workers to move around with out haring the plants. Wait a minuet. I squinted; I saw a brown spot at the corner of the garden, next to a path. I ran towards the growing brown spot.
Once I got there I saw this bug digging at the plants. It had an awkward shaped head, with green eyes and two feelers near its mouth. Its entire body was white, baring the front legs which were brown, its eyes and wings which were green. The wings were small and didn’t seem to help the thing fly. It had two back legs, which, like the wings and front legs were attached to its torso. It was a Nincada. So this was the Pokemon that had been digging up the gardens. I had to stop it. Taillow had been circling me, and landed on my head, look at the strange Pokemon. It would best if I used Taillow to attack the Pokemon right? I didn’t want to fight it myself, its claws looked sharp.
“Ok,” I say “Taillow, use peck on that Pokemon!”
Taillow jumps off my head, and flaps her wings to get a few feet above my head. Then she dived down, her beak glowed and became as share as it could. She hit the bug, knocking it into the flowers. The bug, startled by the sudden attack started digging a deep hole. It was trying to get away.
“Oh no, you don’t!” I said “After it, Taillow! Use wing attack and quick attack at once!”
Taillow flew around the hole, a few times to build up speed. Then she dived into the hole, both of her wings glowing. In a few seconds I heard a hissing sound. Taillow flew out, covered in small scratches. The bug knew fury swipes, that’s were the scratches came from. The Nincada climbed out of the hole, and looked around it was sporting many bruises and scratches. I closed its eyes and focused
“Let’s finish this!” I yell “Use air slash!”
Taillow flapped its wings multiple times, creating many sharp blades of air, they all few at the ground bug. At the last second, the Pokemon jumped out of the way of the attack. The blades harmlessly hit the ground. It must have used mind reader.
“Now!” I hollered “Hit it with a quick attack powered peck!”
Taillow few up, and then came back down towards the white bug. Its beak glowed again, and it became shaper. The Nincada jumped out of the way, but Taillow would not be fooled twice. She turned up and went under the Nincada. The attack connected, and the Nincada went flying. It came down behind me. I ran over to it, and picked it up. The thing has lost conciseness. I carried it back to the house and walked in.
“You did good Taillow,” I said “Miss Rosalie, I found the Pokemon that has been digging up your gardens.”
“Oh,” she said “So it was a Nincada? I should have guessed. I see you knocked it out.”
“Well, It was attacking your flowers” I said “I had to stop that. What will happen to it?”
“I’m going to give it to nurse Joy can see if she can fine a home for It,” she said “Why do you ask?”
“Because I wanna keep it,” I said “It seemed like a good Pokemon”
“Is that so,” My dad said “I’ll say yes to that.”
“Really?” I said “You sure?”
“Of course!” He said “You did knock it out, and I’m sure mom will say yes too, as long as you don’t break any of her fine china.”
