Holy shit, where have I been for the past 10 or so months!? Seriously 10 just to write this? SWTF-translates to Seriously What The Fuck!
Anyway, I am sorry for this INCREDIBLY long wait, I don't even know the reason for why this has taken so long. Oh wait, I must of been lost in the Shivering Isles, or something. A joke in referencing the Shivering Isles expansion to The Elder Scrolls Oblivion, I love the Shivering Isles. Madning fun. Well actually, lost in gaming, life, and my mate's eyes lol.
Also, I am unfortunately no closer to my goals then 10 months ago, not even a wee baby step. Still no license, and I've given back my vehicle, it's was to much for me to drive, I kept hitting stuff with the front end. The license is a REQUIRMENT for the military. Honestly I don't think I'm cut out to drive, it's not second nature to me.
I WAS going to move and go to collage, unfortunately the classes have already started and so I'll have to wait for SPRING to go to collage. Just hope they got a class I want to take, or cooking.
Wait... where was I? Oh yes. Well I am terribly sorry for this rather long wait, I'm not sure if it won't happen again. I've gotten rather lazy since I've graduated High School, maybe going to school again will provide me with the urge to write stuff to pass the boredom, lol.
Well with that said, comment, criticise, and all that stuff. I want feedback, the nonexplosive painful kind, lol. Sorry SC II is messing with my head, and the Sheogorath from Skyrim, he looks so familair. With that said, enjoy.
"Are you done yet?"
"Yeah, I'm almost done, buddy."
Kyler lowers his ears as the brush touches the back of his head. It glides down his neck and along his back until it touches the base of his tail and stops. It lifts and she places a hand on the back of his head. He wags his tail as he feels her soft hands run down to the base of his neck. She lifts her hand and he feels her hand run down his head again.
"See, that wasn't so bad. Was it buddy?"
He tilts his head back lowering his ears, a slight murr passes his lips as she starts petting him.
"He must really like it when you pet him."
He lowers his ears more as Diane continues to pet him. "Buddy always liked it when I pet him. It gives him a sense of comfort and appreciation. Plus, I pet all my Pokemon.
"Why do you always call him 'buddy'?"
Feeling Diane lift her hand away he opens his eyes and looks over at both of them. Diane was kneeling beside him, the towel around her waist now spread over the cool white tile floor, droplets of water slowly rolling down her naked body. Her pinkish red hair flows down to her shoulders.
He looks over at Petal who was sitting nearby. Her body gleamed as the bathroom's light hit her gorgeous, neatly groomed fur creating an almost heavenly aura. Her leaflike tail curled against her body showing how relaxed she was.
"Because he's always been my buddy. He is my first pokemon, and has always been with me. Ever since the day he hatched he's been by my side. He always sleeps near me and he's very protective, especially when it comes to boys."
He looks at Diane and smiles, innocently wagging his tail. She smiles and he feels her hand underneath his chin, scratching him.
"I still remember the day my dad gave me his egg. It was my twelfth birthday, and all week dad kept saying that I would get the best present ever."
*Six years ago*
She slowly opens her eyes, looking around the room. She glances up, smiling as a tall man stood in the door way smiling back at her, his arms crossed in front of him. His soft blue eyes looking at her.
"Morning, baby girl." He says as he stands there.
"Morning, dad." She says as she sits up, stretches, and yawns.
"Happy birthday," He says. He lowers his arms as he walks into the room towards her bed. He stops and kneels down beside her. She feels him kiss her on the head.
She smiles, and wraps her arms around his neck. She feels his arms wrap around her.
He lets go and moves away smiling.
"I have a present for you, one you're going to love."
"Really? What is it?"
He smiles and stands up, looking over at the doorway. She looks over at the door way seeing her mother standing there in her nurses gown, in her arms a small brown egg with a white zig zagged stripe across its middle. She walks into the room over to the bed and sits down.
Her eyes widen as her mother places the egg on her lap and smiles.
"Happy birthday, Diane."
She looks at it, then at her parents.
Her dad smiles and nods.
"Yes, it's your very own Pokemon egg."
She looks at the egg and slowly reaches out and touches it. It was smooth and warm to the touch.
"But you need to know something."
She looks over to her dad as he placed a hand on her head.
"Pokemon eggs are fragile and must be taken care of at all times. If harm ever comes to this egg, the innocent being inside will never experience life. It's your job to protect this egg and keep it safe. Once it hatches, the baby Pokemon will still need to be looked after, since it will be too young to fend for itself. Promise me and your mother that you will take care of this egg and the life inside it."
Placing her hands on the egg she slowly picks it up and hugs it. A wave of awe, and responsibility washes over her, and she feels a warm tear roll down her face.
"Thank you. I promise I'll take good care of it."
She feels her parents' arms wrap around her, locking her in a warm embrace.
"Happy birthday" They whisper in her ear.
"Happy growl, Diane!"
She glances down, seeing the familair orange and black face of Scorch, her mom's Growlithe, standing next to the bed. Smiling, she nods her head and he jumps up and nuzzles her. She feels tears of joy running down her face.
"Wow. That must of been the best birthday ever."
He looks at Petal as Diane reaches over and pets her.
"It was the best ever. Dad told me I had a lots of responsibilities to look after buddy's egg. I went to bed with it, woke up with it, bathed with it and everything. His egg was with me every minute of everyday. A couple months later, while visiting my cousins in the Unova region, he hatched. Right in the middle of the Pokemon center, in front of dozens of strange people and Pokemon. A tiny baby eevee with light blue eyes hatched in front of everyone. The first thing he did was look at me and jumped into my arms, nuzzling and licking me. It was the happiest moment of my life."
He feels Diane touch his forehead scratching at the base of his ear, causing him to murr and lean into her hand. She continues scratching and he continues murring from the treatment, lightly thumping his hind leg.
"He really likes that."
Diane stops and he whines a little. Suddenly he feels something work around his waist. He looks down while Petal's leaf like tail curls around his waist. He feels her body against his. He blushes and glances up at Diane.
She puts a hand to her mouth and laughs slightly.
"Looks like someone likes you buddy."
He blushes more and looks at Petal.
"Whats this for?"
She looks up and smiles.
"No reason, it's just that I like you."
She reaches up and licks his nose, causing his eyes to widen and his face burn from blushing. He hears Diane laugh again, then she stands up, walking over to the bathroom door opening it. She motions with her hand. He nods and nuzzles Petal's cheek.
"Come on, Petal."
He feels her tail release his body and he stands up. Walking towards the door, he walks through into the bedroom. The cool white tile turning to fuzzy brown carpet. He looks at the room. The walls seemed to be made of what looks like tree logs. He walks over to the bed he jumps on it, his paws sinking into the the soft black blankets. He lays down, facing the doorway to the bathroom. The bed shifts a little as he feels Petal lay down beside him and nuzzles him.
"You two look like a rather cute couple."
He blushes more, looking at Diane who had placed the towel around her midsection. Petal's tail wraps around his as she leans closely to him. He watches as Diane smiles and walks over to the bed, kneeling down as she lifts her backpack up onto the bed. She stands up, unzips the top of the backpack, pulls out her clothes and places them on the bed.
"What do you think, buddy? Casual or what?"
Laying his head down, he eyes the various articles of clothing. It was rather limited since she likes to travel light, and most of their supplies were back at the ruined camp site. Four short sleeved shirts, three pairs of jeans, undergarments, and her training clothes. She then places a small plastic bag onto the bed next to the pile of clothing, inside was a full length beautiful dark blue dress. She only wore it when they were in a contest or some special formal event. But even then it's seldomly worn. He silently watches as a small glimmering tear slides down her cheek.
"Are you okay, Diane?" His ear twitches as Petals speaks, her voice sounding a little worried.
Diane nods and sniffs. "Yeah, I'm fine. It's just....this was my mothers dress. She looked so beautiful in it."
"She must have. Uh....where are your parents, Diane?"
He feels the air in his lungs freeze. He looks up at Diane, she was looking at the dress. Diane silently lifts her head to look at Petal.
He looks over at Petal, she lowers her ears, looking down at the bed. "I'm sorry."
Diane places a hand on Petal's head, rubbing it gently.
"It's okay, it happened a long time ago. Buddy and I don't talk about it, it's... painful."
He lays his head down as silence overtook the room, the only sounds he could hear were their breathing.
"I don't know what I would do if I lost my parents." Petal looks down, a small tear slowly rolling down her face."
Diane reaches out and rubs Petal's head. "It's okay."
A long silence passes as Kyler rests his head on his paws, staring at both of them. After a few moments, Diane smiles, taking her hand off of Petals head and looks down at the assortment of clothes.
"Okay, so what should I wear? Any suggestions buddy?"
His eyes dart from clothing to clothing. She occasionally asked him this question.
"I don't know, wear what ever you feel like."
She looks at him and places both hands on the bed.
"Well... lets see.... I'm kinda in a training mood today." She looks over at Petal and smiles. "I'm anxious to see what Petal can do in a fight, plus you're getting a little big buddy."
His ear twitches and he raised his head, frowning at her.
"Hey, I'm not getting fat. You should look in a mirror, Ms. Snorlax."
Diane raises an eyebrow, looking at him. "Ms. Snorlax? That's the best you can think of?"
"That was kinda lame, Ky."
He looks over at Petal, then rests his head on his paws. "It was either that or thunder thighs."
Diane shakes her head. "You should leave the joking to Ry, buddy."
Sighing he closes his eyes and lowers his ears. "I guess. By the way, where is he?"
"As soon as we got here, I told him I'd deal with you two and he left."
"Okay, I hope he's not gossiping about what happened."
"Seriously? You know better then that, Ry would never tell anyone what happened. He may mess with you, but he'd never do anything like that to hurt you."
"You're right, sorry." He sighs.
Ry never really has done anything to hurt him, just the usual joking around. Ry loved joking around, even when he was baby Riolu. He always found something to laugh about. Before he could talk, he was only able to make incomprehensible noises.
"Um....I was wondering, is Ry gay?"
His ear perks. Opening his eyes, he looks at Petal.
"Uh, yeah. Why?"
Petal shakes her head.
"No reason, it's just I kind of got a feeling that he was gay."
Raising his head, he looks at her.
"You're okay with it, right?"
"Yeah, it's okay. I don't have a problem with it."
Kyler lowers his head and looks out of the room's window.
The sun's noon rays lightly shone through the open window, a light breeze causing the red curtains to sway slightly. The light chirping of several flying-type Pokemon sounded rather soothing. It was followed by dozens of crackling noises similar to sparks of electricity.
"Did you hear something?"
He sighs as his ear twitches towards Petal.
"That was Spark, the Luxray on our team. He has a.... thing for flying-types."
"A thing. We don't know what it is, but he doesn't like them very much. He says he finds them annoying." He chuckles lightly. "We've actually found a fun way to entertain ourselves with it."
He looks over at her and smiles.
"You'll see in a little bit. By the sound of it, today's the perfect day to mess with him."
She tilts her head to the side and lowers an ear. It actually made her look rather cute.
Smiling, he leans over, licking Petals cheek, causing her to blush deeply. She smiles back and licks his cheek.
"Do you want to train today, Petal?"
Nodding eagerly, she licks his cheeck again. "I'd love to."
Smiling, he licks her cheek.. "Okay."
"So, that's settled, and I know just the clothes to pick."
Turning to Diane, who was picking up her training clothes: a plain white short-sleeved shirt, and her green shorts. She removes the towel, setting it on the bed. She starts to get dressed.
"You seem okay with dressing in front of him."
He looks over to Petal. Diane looks up at Petal and continues dressing, pulling her panties up.
"Buddy's seen me naked plenty of times, we used to bathe together when we were smaller, he's never done anything."
"Okay. You must trust him a lot."
He looks over at Diane as she nods and puts on her bra, then moving her hair back so it doesn't get in the way.
"I trust buddy with my life, and he knows it. I trust all my Pokemon. Well, the one's I've caught, anyways."
"So there's been Pokemon that you don't trust?"
He lays his head down on his paws, looking at both Diane and Petal.
"Well, as a Joy, I love all Pokemon, but not every trainer. There's been times I've confronted a trainer about the way they treat their Pokemon. But there are times there's a Pokemon I don't like. So yeah there are some Pokemon I wouldn't trust."
"What about that human male you've been hanging out with?"
Diane stops as she pulls up her training shorts, looking at Petal.
"How would you know about a human male with us?"
He looks over at Petal who blushes slightly.
"I've been... following you guys since the last human town... Sandgem I think?"
"Sandgem, that was a few days ago, so you've been following us since then?"
Petal blushes more, rubbing her side with her tail.
"Well yes... kind of. Kyler was quite attractive."
He blushes deeply as Petal looks over at him, smiling. Diane smiles slightly, and continues getting dressed, grabbing her shirt and putting it on.
"I see. Well... Brendan is a nice guy. I trust him, I mean, he did save my life."
His ears perk and he looks over at Diane.
"Wait, what? How did he save your life?"
Diane pulls down her shirt, smoothing it out.
"When we were running away from Armando and his crew yesterday, Ardi found a crossing on the river, a large rotted out tree."
Lifting his head he looks at her.
"You know how dangerous those things can be."
"Yeah I know, buddy, but we didn't have a choice. I was the last to cross, and when I was ready to jump off, the tree gave out from underneath me and I was starting to fall back. Brendan grabbed my hand and pulled me off of it. I don't know what would of happened it he didn't."
He looks at her as she straightens her hair, her eyes closed. Sighing, he lays down on his paws.
"Okay, as long as he didn't do anything else."
"Oh please, buddy. Don't start acting like my father."
"I don't like you being around human guys ever since that bastard, Dirge."
"Buddy, I'm a grown girl, I can make my own choices. But I will give you that. I seriously hate that guy."
He sighs as he looks over to Petal.
"He was a guy we traveled with, for a few days. Black hair, leather jacket, and very cocky attitude, always got what he wanted. I hated him from the start."
"He couldn't have been that bad."
"He was. He didn't treat his pokemon with respect, and didn't care for their well-being. All he cared about was looking cool and getting laid." He looks up at Diane, a fire in her eyes as she spoke of him. "We met him in Ilex forest, and he offered to help us out of the forest. We walked that forest for four days, then one night I woke up to him taking off my panties, saying I owe him for helping us out..." Diane stops and shudders. "He covered my mouth and was undoing his pants when Kyler woke up, having sneaked into the tent and bit his hand that was over my mouth. I kicked him in the crotch about five or six times before he lost consciousness. We left him with his pokemon before he woke. We found the exit an hour later, he was leading us in circles the whole time. Next day we heard he was arrested in Azalea town for seven accounts of rape."
"Wow, I'm glad you weren't the eighth count."
Diane nods, sitting down on the bed.
"Yeah, we were lucky, at least it was us and not some other poor girl."
"What happened to him?"
"Well....." Diane turns to him and Petal, a slight smile on her face. "He was accused, sent to prison-- a place for convicted people of doing really bad things-- for a very long time, and his pokemon were taken away and were treated."
"Sounds like he deserved it."
Laying his head back down, he smiles.
"He did, I'm glad that bastard's in jail."
He feels Diane's hand touch his head and start scratching him behind the ear, a light murr escaping his muzzle.
"Me too, buddy."
"So Kyler's been distrustful of human guys since then?"
He feels Diane keep scratching him as she speaks.
"Yeah, we've traveled with a couple since then, and if a guy was involved that buddy didn't like, he was always between me and them. It was impossible to get a date with him around."
"You don't need to be dating anyways," he says. Diane keeps scratching him.
"Oh really? I'm grown up buddy, I don't need you watching over me like you're my father."
"I know, but I'm just trying to keep you safe from those scumbags."
"I know, and I'm thankful, but I can take care of myself."
Sighing, he leans into her hand as she continues to scratch him.
"So does this mean I can finally date?"
"Sure, but no mating."
"Sorry buddy, but I have needs, too."
He sighs. "Fine, whatever."
"Good. Besides, why do you get all the fun of having sex with someone?"
He blushes as Petal giggles lightly, and feels her tail wrap around his.
"Yeah, why should you?"
Sighing again he places his paws over his head. He hears Diane and Petal laugh a little.
"So I guess we're all ready for today. You want to apologize to Evy and Mich now, or later?"
"Now, I guess... I just want it done with as soon as possible."
He feels Diane's hand leave, and the bed shifts. The mention of Evy and Mich was making him nervous. This was probably going to be the hardest part of his life.
"Okay, I'll go find them and tell them you want to talk."
Opening his eyes, he watches as Diane walks over to the door and opens it up. Turning back to him she motions to the bathroom.
"It might be best if Petal stays in there while you all talk."
He nods and lifts his head.
Diane weakly smiles and walks out the door, shutting it behind her. He feels Petal's tail tighten around his, and he looks over at her.
"You're okay with it, right?"
She nods and nuzzles him.
"Yeah, I'm okay with it. Are you nervous?"
Nodding, he looks at the window.
"Yeah, I'm very nervous right now."
He feels her press her face against his, her tail squeezing his own.
"Don't worry, it'll be alright. I'll be in the bathroom if you need me."
After she kisses his cheek, she stands up, walks over to the edge of the bed, and jumps onto the floor. He watches as she walks towards the bathroom. She was so sincere and kind...
"Petal?" He says, his voice choked a little.
She turns back towards him. "Yes?"
He pauses, looking at her, the seconds seemed to fly by as he stared into her natural brown eyes.
She smiles warmly at him. "You're welcome." And walks through the bathroom door. She shuts it part of the way.
Sighing he turns his head back to the door leading to the rest of the house. The Butterfrees in his stomach multiply by the hundreds every second.
At any moment, Diane's going to walk through with Evy and Mich... Dear Arceus, please give me the strength to do this...
Standing up, he walks over to the foot of the bed and jumps down, facing the door, and sits down, the anxiety and fear building inside him.
He blinks, looking at the door.
"I've got them. I'm sending them in now."
Gulping, he watches as the handle turns slowly, and the door opens.
