~~Time to cool off
Aubrey leaned back in his lawn chair and sipped his lemonade, through a green crazy straw. The eighteen year old delivery boy was clad simply in blue jeans and an olive green band tee-shirt. His Poochyena, Ms. Wolf, was curled up next to him on the grass of route twenty four, eyes closed and snoring very lightly. They had been resting there the better part of an hour, enjoying the sunlight and the cool breeze. Ms. Wolf was a healthy specimen of Poochyena with sleek black fur and lean muscles, Aubrey clearly took excellent care of the pup.
Ms. Wolf rolled onto her side and started running in her sleep, probably dreaming of chasing a Meowth. She growled at thin air baring her teeth at the dream. Aubrey chuckled, he had seen her act this way in her sleep countless times. He pushed his shades down from his forehead to cover his eyes. Quite suddenly and unexpectedly Ms. Wolf awoke and jumped up looking off towards Nugget Bridge. Aubrey turned to see what had woken her and saw two of Misty’s trainer’s a red head and a blonde wearing bikinis and towels walking along the bridge and gossiping, attractive young ladies were the young lad’s Achilles heel.
He cracked a grin and jumped up brushing himself off and straightened his clothing. Aubrey started walking casually along toward the ladies, Ms. Wolf following close right behind him. “Hello hello! If it isn’t Katy and Sally, how are you talented trainers doing this spring time afternoon?” he asked giving them a little mock bow.
When both the girls turned to look at Aubrey, they rolled their eyes in unison. “Not this guy again,” The red head whispered to the blonde. “Listen delivery boy, we don’t have time to deal with pond scum,” Said the blonde, she eyed him up and down giving him a disgusted look, and it wasn’t that Aubrey was unattractive. In fact when he had first moved to Cerulean he earned a reputation as a ladies’ man. The only problem was, Cerulean was a tiny town.
The red headed girl scoffed at him and crossed her arms scowling at him fiercely. “Our names are Stacey and Kimie. I thought you would have remembered that Yew, after going on three dates with both of us, on the same nights.” She hissed and her tone made him take a few steps back, they were superior trainers after all.
Behind her master Ms. Wolf growled everyone turned their attention to the Poochyena. “Wow Yew,” Said Kimie the red headed girl “how long have you had that puppy and it still hasn’t evolved?” Aubrey knelled down and scratched Ms. Wolf behind her ears. “Aw, why would I want this ador-“ However he was cut off by Stacey “How long?” He took a deep sigh and rolled his eyes as if he did not care about his reputation as a trainer. “Eight years, what of it?” He asked turning back to face the girls with a scowl. “And it’s your only Pokémon?” asked Kimie, who burst out laughing pointing at Aubrey. This wasn’t going as well as he had hoped. “What do I need another one for? I’m just a delivery boy not some gym leader’s lackey.” That shut Kimie up from laughing. It was true he only battled wild Pokémon who would attack him during his deliveries throughout Kanto. “Besides Misty has like what? Three or four Pokémon? ” he asked.
In response to his observation Stacey took out a pokeball. ‘Where did that come from?’He thought to himself. But before he could further ponder the hiding places on her outfit she let the Pokémon out, a Seaking. He looked down at the water Pokémon and held up his hands passively. “Whoa now, I don’t do Pokémon battles with trainers, remember?” he asked raising his eyebrows at the girl. Stacey gave an grin “That’s fine by me loser. Seaking, Water gun!” She shouted and the next thing Aubrey knew he was on his back, winded, and completely soaked with a sharp pain in his gut. He coughed sitting up and watched the girls walking away laughing hysterically. “That loser couldn’t even capture a Magikarp!” he heard one of that say to the other.
Aubrey got to his feet scowling; they had hurt his pride more than anything. “Couldn’t catch a Magikarp huh? All right, we’ll show them!” He shouted as he marched into the nearby field, and grabbed a large sturdy stick. He walked back over to his lawn chair and pulled out some string and his packed lunch. He tied the string around both the stick and a roll and marched to the nearby lake and dipped it into water and waited still fuming. Ms. Wolf watched him with a look of exasperation in her eyes the whole time. She let out a heavy sigh and walked over to him by the shore laid by her feet giving her trainer a look of distaste. She hated when he got into one of his moods.
It didn’t take long for one of the many kings of karp to bite. Aubrey felt the tug on his make shift fishing rod and pulled back. He pulled a magnificent example of the common pokemon out of the river. Its whiskers and fins shone like gold, its scales glinted in the sunlight like rubies. Aubrey was calmed down from his anger when he saw how good it looked, for a Magikarp.
