FINALLY ITS HERE
only a few characters are introduced in this chapter, but be patient.
Ding, ding, ding!
Professor Laurel placed her hand on the “Ignore” button of the phone. She sighed and looked into my eyes.
“Winter, your mother wants you to work on your social skills, so you can get help on your journey.”
I peeked down at my light brown boots with cotton trimmed on the edges. Nobody dared to talk about my mother at the Pokemon Lab. Not ever since she decided to leave me here.
“Okay,” I responded quietly, tugging at a lock of extremely pale periwinkle hair.
“There are two kids waiting for you to go on the journey with them.” Professor Laurel informed. “But to make it up to you, you all are getting Pokemon that aren’t starters.”
I shrugged and bit my lip. Will they like me?
Laurel opened the door to the Meeting Room, labeled Room 126.
I shuffled through the door, my head hanging. I tried not to meet anyone’s eyes, but I watched them silently.
One girl was feeding a fletchling a pokepuff, and the other girl was playing catch with a deerling.
“Thunderstorm, Gulfstream,” Laurel held her clipboard tightly. “This is Winter.”
I waved a little bit but didn’t say anything.
Gulfstream held the deerling close as she held out her hand. “Hey, I’m Gulfstream. You can call me Gulfy, if you want.”
I grabbed it weakly and finally met her gaze. “I’m, um- Winter.”
Thunderstorm came over as well, her fletchling clutching onto her shoulder. “’Sup? My name’s Thunderstorm. This is Gale.”
“Winter.” This time, I acted a bit more confident to show Professor Laurel that I had great social skills.
Gulfstream handed me a Pokeball. My fingers fumbled on it for a few seconds until a clicked it.
The Pokeball opened with a flash (that nearly blinded me, I might add) and a smol vanillite chirped.
I picked it up tenderly. “Um, I’ll name you… Blizz?”
Blizz responded in a loud approval.
“Can we go?” Thunderstorm asked, her eyes flashing.
“I don’t see why not.” Laurel shrugged, opening an exit door.
I grabbed my snap-pack and slung it on. My eyes caught the door to go with Laurel, but if she knew I had followed her away from the journey, she would be angry with me.
Blizz hopped along, like he was problem-free.
“Hey, I’d put Blizz in a Pokeball, if I were you.” Thunderstorm shrugged. “It’ll melt.”
I held out the Pokeball and collected him in. My mind was on the fact that Laurel kept asking me to find “The Noblest Spirit”, which had to be both a Pokemon and Trainer. I also noticed how she would glance at Gale at random times.
“Hey, guys? Which city are we going to first?” I murmured.
“Waterlily Heart City,” Gulfstream said, checking the map.
I shrugged and steadied on ahead.
Not long after, a scream could be heard. I looked up, curious.
A boy riding a confident absol had dropped out of the sky, and directly onto Gulfstream.
“Gulfy!” Thunderstorm gasped, racing to where the two collided.
“Ow.” Gulfstream huffed, squirming out of the pile.
My head whipped to the boy. “Hey! What were you doing?”
“Okay, okay! I’m sorry! It was my crazy absol!” The boy held his arms in front of his head to block any attacks.
“Dude! You need to control that Pokemon!” Thunderstorm crossed her arms and rolled her eyes. I couldn’t hold back a laugh.
“Okay, sure, ma’am.” The boy’s voice wavered. “Don’t hurt me.”
Thunderstorm raised her eyebrows. “If I had any sense, I would send Gale to pick you off. But, I don’t.”
Gulfstream rubbed her head, muttering anxious but terrifying phrases.
I held out my hand. “I’m Winter. That’s Thunderstorm, and the one you landed on is Gulfy.”
“Gulfy?” The boy asked.
“Gulfstream.” Gulfstream hissed.
“I’m Kingston,” He pointed at Gulfstream. “But you may call me King, if you want!”
Gulfstream looked about ready to smack him. “No.”
Kingston shrugged. “Then you guys can. By the way, can we go back into town? I came with this girl…”
Thunderstorm sighed and pointed in the direction towards town. “Gale, can you find a girl that matches this description?”
“Kind of tall, she has blonde-ish hair, oh- and she has gray-steel-blue eyes. Got it?” King shouted up at Gale.
Gale fluttered off, into the breeze. I stared down at Blizz’s Pokeball.
“Maybe the rest of us could search by ground?” I suggested. “We can meet back at the fountain by the café.”
Everyone agreed and took out their Pokemon.
Blizz began to hop towards the Pokeshops at the mall. I followed, wondering why he chose this area.
Eventually, I just realized that he just wanted to buy Pokepuffs in the windows of every tasty-smelling bakery.
“Hey! Leave me alone!” A lone voice shouted from inside a clothes shop.
I peeked inside, and saw that Gale was flying in circles around a girl’s head. But this wasn’t any ordinary girl. It was King’s friend.
eyyyyyy i didn't put really any ship moments in here, but tell me who you think i'm shipping.
Also, this took up like 4 pages on Word.
