I groaned as Ethan dragged me off to the food stand once again. For a small kid, he sure can eat!
"Fo, I fawf finking that fe coulf like...." He stopped talking long enough to finish the mushy cotton candy and gummy mix in his mouth," So, I was thinking that we could like, have a completion tomorrow on who can finish their Pokedex first!"
I raised an eyebrow," Uh, you do remember that I'm the champion, right? I completed my Pokedex years ago." I stated, a proud smile on my face. Ethan's face dropped, a light embarrassed flush on his face.
He rubbed his neck awkwardly," Oh, he-he, I knew that!"
I chuckled and waved goodbye," Yeah, yeah, sure you did! Seeya'!"
I left the carnival, leaving Ethan alone to eat as he pleased. Besides, I had a party to go to tonight, and the last thing I needed was Ethan dragging me around a smelly, kid-invested place for the whole day. Once I was in a clearing on the way back to New Bark, I got an idea. A brilliant idea.
I took out a master ball and flung it into the air," Fly, Ho-Oh!" The loud screech and wind blowing signalled me that it had been released. I hopped on, swinging my arms around it's neck," To Dragon's Den, Ho-Oh!" The bird fluttered it's wings, prepared for the long trip, and took off.
Silver paced around the dim cave, procrastinating on what he should do. Lyra was having a party tonight, and he had been invited. The only reason he even agreed to go was because _____ would be there, and he knew that for a fact because A) She never missed a party, and B) Lyra told him. But, there was a small problem;
Silver didn't know how to dance.
And it wasn't just dancing in general, it was also slow dancing, the only type of dancing he wanted to participate in with ______. He felt pretty pathetic about it, but he figured that it wasn't too hard to learn. He did research and found out that there were different types of dances he needed to learn to master the art. That's how he punched a hole through his computer screen. Silver groaned and gripped his blazing red hair, prepared to rip it out of his head," Dammit! Why does nothing work out like I want!?"
Typhlosion looked at his trainer and laughed, saying 'Man! You are pathetic!', earning a cold glare from the teenager," Oh shut up, windbag."
The fire type growled and tackled his trainer, causing the only clothing he had to be covered in dirt," Get off of me you little-"
He paused when he saw a shadow looming over him and his Pokémon," Uh, hey _____...."
______ knelt down and patted the fire type, who had got off of Silver and cuddled into the one trainer that gave him affection," Silver, we've talked about this. You need to learn to treat your Pokémon the right way. This includes not cursing at them." Silver rolled his eye and sat up, trying to wipe off the dust that clinged to his clothes," Yeah, yeah, whatever."
______ sighed in aggravation and stood up, holding out a small hand towards him," Are you gonna just stay down there or what?" Silver smacked her hand away and got up himself. He glared at the female in front of him and crossed his arms," So, is there a reason you came here?"
_____'s shining (e/c) eyes went wide and she giggled," Oh yeah! Are you going to Lyra's party tonight?" Silver's face went red and he huffed like a child, earning a funny look from his Pokémon," What's it to you?"
______'s face went red and she stuttered," N-no reason. Just w-wonderin' is all." Silver looked down at the cave floor, suddenly finding the rocks and dirt very interesting," I-I might go. B-but I can't dance..." he mumbled, hoping she would hear him.
She raised an eyebrow, placing her hands on her hips," What?"
"I SAID I CAN'T DANCE!" Silver's booming voice echoed through the cave, startling a few wild Pokémon," Are you happy now?"
______ stifled a laugh before she placed a hand on his shoulder" Aw, Silvy! It's okay! To be honest, I'm not the best dancer either..." She said shyly, her cheeks tinted pink.
Silver grumbled," At least you know how to dance, terrible or not."
"Whoa, wait. You mean you don't know how to dance at all?"
He shook his head. _____ giggled lightly, causing many Butterfree to bubble in Silver's stomach. She looked at him with those beautiful orbs that could make only Silver melt and placed a hand out towards the fifteen year old," Take my hand."
"Just do it."
Sivler hesitated, but gave in and grabbed her hand. She snaked her arms around his neck, making Silver flush at the contact," Okay, now put your hands on my waist."
Silver looked at her like she was crazy," W-what!?"
She rolled her eyes and took her hands away from his neck, taking Silver's hands and placing them on her hips," If you want to learn how to dance, you must co-operate." Silver's face became more red, but he obliged and slowly flowed her lead, gently swaying and following her feet, refusing to meet her gaze. _____ took out her phone and placed an earbud in her ear, then in Silver's. Silver looked at her very confused, and was about to ask her what he was doing, until he heard a beautiful slow song go through the small thing in his ear.
Silver was starting to get the hang of it, and by the end of the song, _____'s head was pressed against his chest, while his hands rested on her back and his head resided in the crook of her neck. The guitarist strummed the last cord of the song, and _____ pulled away, much to Silver's dislike.
"Wow, you're an amazing dancer." _____ beamed, a bubbly smile on her face. God, Silver just wanted to grab her and spin her around, and let her know how much he cared for her, even when he didn't show it.
"Uh, Silver, are you okay? Your face is really red." _____ placed a hand on his cheek, letting the warmth of his face seep into her hand," You're really warm, do you have a fever?"
Silver couldn't speak, he didn't know what to say anymore. _____ sighed and removed her hand, letting herself out, but Silver grabbed her hand before she could move an inch," Wait! Don't go!"
_____ blushed and looked at him," Why?"
Silver needed an excuse for ______ not to go, so, he did the one thing he could think of first.
He kissed her.
______ was shocked at first, but melted quickly into it, kissing back with as much passion. But alas, the stupid need for air cut it short. Silver snatched away _____'s phone and put the earbuds back in their ears, putting another slow song on and placing his hands on her hips, her wrapping her arms around his neck.
______ placed her head on Silver's chest, not wanting the moment to end. They danced to the same song for hours, completely letting the concept of time slip their minds. Until Lyra called _____.
"_____! Where are you!? The party started like an hour ago!"
_____ chuckled before looking up to Silver's red eyes," That's okay, I got my own dance right here."
