Summary: Lance heals Red after he saves a kid.
"You should not do things like that, Red. One day, I won't be able to help you." Lance said, as he carefully placed his fingers over Red's sides. Red winced, and nodded as he felt bone and muscle and tissue knit together, stifling a gasp of pain.
"The more I use my power on someone, the more immune to it they become. That's why you feel pain now."
"… I really did not need to know that." Red sighed.
"You can sit up now." Lance said, frowning. "Honestly, what were you thinking? Throwing yourself in front of a car to save a little girl?"
Perhaps it was…
"Lance… if I had saved a pokémon, would you not be mad?"
Lance shook his head. "You know me too well, Red. But let me give you a word of warning. My power does not work well on humans. And if I – no, the Forest senses that you hurt yourself saving one of them…. my power will not work on you either, even with your ancestry."
Red sighed. "I'm sorry."
"Are you really?"
"… I don't know. I just didn't want her to die."
Lance grimaced. "Well, killing hatchlings is generally not praised, yes, but you didn't have to save her. Yellow was there too."
"I'm just worried about you."
"You have a strange way of showing it." Red said, a tad bitterly, but he allowed Lance to hug him until he calmed down.
They sat in silence for a few moments, and finally Red worked up his courage.
"Can I kiss you now that I'm properly contrite?"
Lance chuckled. "Go ahead."
And they did.
I'm such a crazy Championshipper that I name my rival in RBY and FRLG Red or Ash so that Lance has company in Indigo Plateau!
