At the hospital
Misty hangs up the phone. She sighs and lies back in the bed.
Boy: Who was that?
Misty almost jumps in the bed. She turns around and looks at the
Misty: It was Ash, my boyfriend.
Boy: Oh. (laughs nervously) Sorry, just curious.
The boy then walks out of the room. Misty lies back down in bed.
Misty: (sighs deeply, quietly) Oh Ash
Narrator: And now, the continuation.
Misty Introducing Title: John!
Its nighttime at the hospital, and Misty is sleeping in her
bed. A young boy, about Mistys age, is walking through the halls. A shade of light
from a window in the hallway reveals himself to be the same boy from the hospital earlier.
He finally reaches Mistys room. He slowly creaks the door open, and pops his head
Boy: (thinking) Shes so cute when shes sleeping. (looks
she has a boyfriend
and I cant just steal this girl away from
this "Ash" kid, can I? (looks back up) No. I have to be her friend. She already
told me about this "Scott" guy and he tried to steal her away. Ill just be
her friend thats all. (sighs out-loud) Still, what I wouldnt give to just hold
The boy sighs again, then slowly shuts the door.
That morning, Misty is being served breakfast by Brock. Togepi is
resting in Mistys bed.
Misty: So, did you find out more about John?
Brock: (sets the spoon down) That boy? No Misty, I didnt.
(raises an eyebrow) Why are you so curious?
Misty: I dont know. Hes so nice and
but I cant cheat on Ash. I love him.
Brock: So dont.
Misty looks down and sighs. Brock raises the other eyebrow.
Brock: Oh no
Misty: (looks up at Brock) Oh geez, I didnt do anything with
Brock: Good, and let it stay that way. (starting to get irritated)
You know, Ash is my friend too, and he would be CRUSHED if you did anything behind his
back. Just like you would be.
Misty: (defensively) Brock, I told you Im not cheating on Ash,
and I dont plan too!
Brock: (sighs) I know. I just dont want you to throw away what
you have with Ash. I mean, what kind of boyfriend calls you everyday?
Boy: One on a short leash.
Misty and Brock jerk theyre heads around. The boy (obviously
John, if you figured that out by now) is standing there in the doorway. Brock laughs but
Misty: John, I do not have Ash call me everyday! He just does.
John: Do you like it?
Misty: (smiles) Of course. I think its sweet.
John: (thinking) Note to self- be sure to call her everyday if you
ever get her as a girlfriend. (out-loud) Anyway, how are you doing today?
Misty: Pretty good, thanks to Brock and his soup here.
Brock: Its my special recipe.
John: Cool, can I try some? (walks inside and shuts door)
Brock then takes out a thermos and a small bowl. He opens the
thermos and puts some soup in the bowl, and hands the bowl to John. John grabs a spoon and
takes a sip of the soup. He coughs and sets the bowl back down.
John: No offense Brock, (coughs) but that stuff (coughs) is really
Misty: Well, I like it that way.
Just then, a phone rings in the room. Misty rolls over to pick it
Videophone: Ring ring ring, ring ring ring, phone call, phone call.
Misty: I hope its Ash. (pushes a button on the videophone)
An image of Ash appears on the screen. He looks beat up (if you read
"At The Pokemon League" youd know why) and tired. Mistys face goes
from a happy one to a worried one.
Misty: (worried) Hey, are you O.K.?
Videophone: (voice of Ash, weakly) Yeah, Im fine
Misty: What happened to Pikachu?
Videophone: (voice of Ash) You remember Butch and Cassidy of Team
Misty: I thought they were in jail?
Videophone: (voice of Ash) Yeah, thats what I thought
until they attacked me and stole Pikachu.
Misty: (gasps) Team Rocket has Pikachu?
Videophone: (voice of Ash) Yeah, but Butch and Cassidy are still in
Misty: How are you so sure?
Officer Jenny suddenly appears next to Ash. Brock blushes a deep red
and John sweatdrops from Brock.
Videophone: (voice of Jenny) Weve barricaded the whole town.
Nobody is going in or out.
Brock: (snaps out of girl-dreamy mode) Why are you being so careful
about a pokemon theft?
Videophone: (voice of Jenny) We heard about what happened to the
Viridian City pokemon center a year back and if this Pikachu is captured by Team Rocket,
then that could happen to any building anywhere on this island. (voice of Ash) So,
were all trying to find them.
Misty: Well, you just be careful. If they hurt you Ill have to
go kill them.
Videophone: (voice of Ash, laughs) Ha, dont you worry about me
Mist. You just worry about getting better soon, O.K.?
Misty: (smiles) O.K. Bye!
Videophone: (voice of Ash) Bye! (hangs up)
Misty: (hangs up) Well, I hope they find Pikachu.
Brock: Im pretty sure they will Misty. If Ash doesnt
find Pikachu hell go crazy.
John: (under his breath) That might not be such a bad thing
Misty: What was that John?
John: (nervous) Nothing, nothing.
Narrator: Well, it looks like Ash has double the trouble! With John
at Mistys heels and Team Rocket, he might just GO crazy. Find out what happens next
