Doo and I had been practicing for a while now. I had grown to level eight, so I had just learned my quick attack. So, to celebrate, we decided to change our practice style. We would play tag for a while, while the others just kept battling.
The wind was blowing intensely on that beautiful green field. The others looked very tired as I skipped past them, but they were still practicing. I took a moment to enjoy the beautiful sights, when I noticed there was a cliff near me. I turned around to look at it, as the wind hit me again
Any moment, everything can change,
Feel the wind on your shoulder,
"Tag, you're it!" Doo said, teleporting in front of me in the form of a …ra-ra…(what was that world again? Oh, yeah.), ralts. I silently cursed as I used my quick attack to try to get him. Of course, he would teleport away.
I couldn't stop running forward as I tripped over my own feet. Everything became slower as I fell from the cliff, everything but my heart, which was pounding at 100,000,000,001 miles per hour. I closed my eyes as I waited for it all to end. Ironic how my second death would mirror my first one: falling. It was also ironic how I had been reborn as a Taillow, a flying type pokemon, and I didn't know how to fly to save myself.
Memories of my life came flashing before me. Doing a commercial, getting Doo, buying a pokemon egg, getting the call, and my first death.
"We are experiencing some trouble due to the bad weather. We ask you to stay calm and not move from your sits. Thank you for traveling on the Lilycove airlines"
The plane started shaking uncontrollably, and everyone started to panic. I heard my mom scream, and hurried over to her. She had been in the bathroom.
Everything happened so quickly I can barely remember. All I know is that we all died that day, but I had been given a new life. And I had become afraid of heights.
Being reborn, acting with Doo, and the short time I had passed here. I couldn't help but thinking I had wasted my life -both of them. I remember and realized that in just a second.
For a minute, all the world can wait,
Let go of your yesterday.
Suddenly, I felt the wind blowing more intensely, and something inside of me awoke. It was a feeling I had never had before, a feeling stronger than any I have had in my life. It was a very deep desire.
Can you hear it calling?
Can you feel it in your soul?
I knew what I had to do now, but how to do it? The ground was close now -extremely close. My heart beat a little faster. It was either getting over my fear, or dying because of it. But how did I know this sudden feeling was real? What if I would still die, no matter what I did? What if it made it worse?
Can you trust this longing?
And take control
Without even thinking, I opened my wings. It came naturally to me, as if I had been doing itg for all of my life, as if I had been born for that single purpose. And maybe I had been.
Open up the part of you that wants to hide away
You can shine,
I flew up faster and faster, until I reached a cloud. I flew around it, making a little wing out of it. I flew around, enjoying the exquisite feeling of freedom that washed over me. I laughed, and danced, and cried. I flew all around, and everything seemed to have a new light. It was better riding on the wind than being stranded on the ground.
Who cares that I died in the sky? That was behind me. I had to live my new life without worrying about my old one. My life had ended on the sky, and on the sky it had started again.
Forget about the reasons why you can't in life,
And start to try, cause it's your time,
I knew at that very moment that there was no reason to be worried anymore. In the end, we would triumph.
Time to fly.
