Ash - Popular?
Ash Introducing Title: Ash- Popular?
The gang has sat down on a bench in the park. Misty is sitting next to Ash with Brock and Pikachu sitting on the opposite side. Unbeknown to Ash, Misty is staring at him.
Ash: So then Ill use my Squirtle. What other pokemon does he have?
Brock: (opens his book) Lets see weve covered Charizard, Flareon and Ninetails, right?
Ash: Yeah whats his fourth pokemon?
Brock: Magmar. Its a level 45.
Ash: Huh. Thatll be tough, right Misty? (no response) Misty? (looks at Misty)
Misty is still staring at Ash with a dazed look on her face. Ash waves his hand in front of Mistys face.
Ash: Misty? Are you in there?
Misty: (wakes up) Huh? Oh, (blushes) sorry Ash.
Brock: What was that all about Misty? (baby voice) Taking a gander at your man again?
Misty: Maybe I am!
Ash & Brock: WHAT?
Ash: Um, Misty
Misty: (smacks head) Not you Ash, the boy over there!
Ash: Huh? (turns head)
Misty is pointing at a boy, about 12 (remember, Ash & Misty are both 12 in this fic) and has black hair, big brown eyes- looks almost- no, exactly like Ash. He has a pokeball in his hand and his showing it off to a large group of girls.
Misty: He seems popular.
Brock: (sweatdrops) Gee, I wonder who he looks like
Ash: He looks like me, Misty. Notice his hair, his eyes, the way hes showing off his pokemon? The clothes hes wearing? He looks just like me.
Misty: (blushes) I kinda like your type.
Girl 1: Hey, stay away from him!
Misty looks at two girls, both Ashs age. They both are wearing blue shirts, expect the girl on the lefts shirt is showing off her bellybutton. They run over to Ash.
Girl 2: Do you really think its him?
Girl 1: Of course. I could never forget his eyes or anything else on his body for that matter. (laughs)
Girl 2: (laughs) You mean you really did?
Girl 1: Yeah. He kissed me, square on the lips.
Misty: Ash, who are these girls?
Ash: (laughs dryly) Um, this is Amber (points to the girl on the left) and Jane (points to girl 2).
Amber: Hey, its been awhile Ash. (looks at Misty) Would this happen to be the redhead you talked about?
Jane: She isnt ugly.
Ash: (laughs dryly) Ha, this is Misty. And I never said she was ugly.
Amber & Jane: Somebodys on lockdown.
Brock: (laughs) Haha, Im Brock. How does Ash know you two beautiful ladies?
Jane: Ash found us a few weeks ago. Well, he mostly found Amber.
Amber: Me and Ash were friends for a long time, and one night he had an incident involving a boy named Gary and redhead here.
Misty: You mean the hotel incident?
Amber: Yeah. Well, anyway, when Gary came back in to get the necklace from you and stopped you two from kissing, he left the hotel when the two of you fell asleep. He came and found me and told me what happened and I got sympathetic. One thing led to another and we kissed. After that
Ash: (jumps in front of Amber) Lets just stop right there, Amber.
Misty: (slightly irritated) No, I wanna know what happened, Ash.
Brock: Yeah, me too.
Ash: What happened was we stopped kissing and I came back. We didnt do anything else.
Misty: (relieved) Oh. So it was just an accident?
Brock: Im not surprised.
Misty: What do you mean?
Brock: Like any girl would even think of dating Ash. Theyd have to be
Misty looks at Brock and silences him. Everybody is quiet for a second. Then two people run into Ash.
Ash: (falls down) Ow! Watch it! (looks up) Oh, not again!
Mary: Prepare for trouble!
Scott: Make it double!
Mary: To protect the world from devastation!
Scott: To unite all peoples within our nation!
Mary: To denounce the evils of truth and love!
Scott: To extend our reach to the stars above!
Mary: Team Rocket, were the double threat tonight!
Scott: If you know whats best youll surrender the fight!
Mary: And you know thats right!
Misty: How do you guys come up with those stupid mottos?
Scott: Were just good like that. No, come to think of it, were BAD like that.
Mary: Now hand over your pokemon before we have to BE bad!
Ash: Never! Go Pidgeotto! (throws pokeball)
Misty: Starmie go!
Brock: Vulpix, go!
Mary: Vaporeon, Jolteon, go!
Scott: Golem and Onix, go!
Misty: Starmie, Water Blast!
Ash & Mary: Water Blast? (Ash pulls out his PokÚdex)
PokÚdex: Water Blast. This attack is like Fire Blast, only using water. Kills any rock or ground type pokemon instantly.
Starmie sends out five jets of water forming the same symbol Fire Blast does. It hits Onix and Golem and they both faint instantly.
Misty: Good job Starmie!
Mary: Its your turn to suffer! Vaporeon and Jolteon, Ice Beam and Thunderbolt on the girl, NOW!
The two pokemon shoot theyre attacks at Misty. But just before they hit Misty, somebody dives in front of her and takes the damage
Ash gets hit by the attacks and falls down, badly hurt. Misty runs to him and bends down.
Misty: (panicking) Oh my god, oh my god! Ash!
Brock: (growls) You bitch. Vulpix, Fire Spin!
Vulpix sends the huge amount of fire over to Vaporeon, Jolteon and Mary. They all go flying, and hit Scott, which sends him flying too.
Mary & Scott: Looks like Team Rocket is blasting off again! (ding)
By this time, Amber and Jane have also rushed to Ashs aide. All three girls are panicking, but Misty is the most.
Misty: (starts to cry) Oh god he dived in front of me to save me now hes gonna die!
Brock: If we dont hurry Misty he will die! The girls and me are going to go get help, you stay here and watch him. O.K?
Misty nods and watches the three of them run into the city. She then sits next to Ash.
Misty: My best friend saved me hes more than my best friend. I love him. (gets angry) But I didnt tell him! Now hes going to die and Im never going to be able to tell him!
Misty then falls over and cries. She continues to cry as she lies next to Ashs almost lifeless body.
Later, Ash has finally been allowed to see visitors. Its been a good day or so in the hospital, and nobody has been allowed to see him. Misty is the first to be led down the hall. The doctor explains what happened.
Doctor: He saved your life. His body was just barely able to take the blow of an Ice Beam and a Thunderbolt. Hell need to stay here one more day before we can release him. If those attacks wouldve hit you, wed be attending your funeral.
Misty: (shocked) Ouch.
The two arrive at Ashs room. He opens the door.
Doctor: Just come out and tell me when I should let the other one in here.
Misty: (nods and smiles) Thank you doctor.
The doctor shuts the door behind him. Misty sits next to Ash in a chair. She stares at him for a minute before waking him up.
Misty: Psst. Ash.
Ash: (wakes up) Huh? (looks at Misty) Hi Misty.
Misty: (smiles) How ya felling?
Ash: (sighs) Like crud. How are you?
Misty: Fine thanks to you. (searches for his hand) Will you be O.K?
Ash: (grabs Mistys hand) Should be.
Misty: Ive got something to tell you, Ash. Its been hiding for a while now, but
Ash: Me first.
Misty nods. Ash takes in a deep breath. Misty eyes widen.
Ash: Ive known you for over a year, and all we ever do is argue. But I cant hide what Ive been feeling deep inside for a long time now. Youve always been there for me- never leaving my side.
Misty: (smiles) Yeah so?
Ash: But Ive betrayed you so many times. I dont deserve you.
Misty: (gasps) What?
Ash: Misty, Im asking you- no, begging you to leave me and Brock and settle down with somebody who can take care of you.
