The Ones You Trust - Part 4

"Pikachu! Cyndaquil!" Ash called around the forest. He and the other Pokémon had been searching for Pikachu or Cyndaquil all night and still no sign of them. "The others are going to be up in a few hours, and they'll be wondering were we are" He thought to himself as he tried to stiffle a yawn. "Noctowl, go back and tell the others were we are, ok?" He asked. Strange, even though the Pokémon had saved him, he still felt a little uneasy around them.

Noctowl nodded and spread his wings, taking off into the dirrection of the camp.

Ash sighed and continued walking, even though he really wanted to stop and rest, he didn't want to give up on Pikachu or Cyndaquil, even if he was still nervous around them. They still scared him slightly, and he wished he didn't feeling that way.

Pikachu opened his eyes slowly and goaned. [Were are we?] He said to himself as he raised himself up onto all fours. He spotted Cyndaquil sleeping next to him and relised they were in a small cage. [What the...Hey! Let us out of here!] Pikachu cried rattling the cage.

Cyndaquil looked up at Pikachu. [Whats going on?] It took a second for his surrondings to sink in. He pushed himself up and released a flamethrower on the bars, but they had no affect.

Pikachu did the same, releasing a thunderbolt, but that also had no affect. Suddenly, a delicious smell reached his nose and his ears twitched curiously. He turned around and saw behind him was Team Rocket. The three had their backs to Pikachu and Cyndaquil and were looking at something.

"Are you sure this was a good idea?" James asked worriedly.

Jessie tore her eyes away from the delicious food set in front of them and looked at James. "James, why not celebrate after capturing that Pikachu and Cyndaquil"

"Because whenever we do something goes wrong" James answered bitterly.

Jessie frowned. "Well it's not going to happen again, now dig in before Meowth and I eat it all without you" She said and begain to eat the food at an amazingly fast pace, soon joined by James, Meowth and the unexpected Wobbuffet.

Pikachu frowned and lowered his ears. He was feeling quite hungry and the sents made his stomach rumble, echoed by Cyndaquil's.

"Hey, be quiet over there" Jessie called back.

"Ya, some of us are tryin' to eat" Meowth added.

Ash groaned as he awoke to the rising sun. He had stopped for a rest and fallen asleep. Quickly waking himself and nervously waking his Pokémon he headed off through the forest.

After a few hours Ash heard a loud snoring sound coming from an area not to far away. He motioned for his Pokémon to be quiet and snuck over, spotting Team Rocket asleep with leftover food lying around them. His eyes scanned the area and he spotted a cage with Pikachu and Cyndaquil in it, both of them fast asleep.

Ash looked back at Bayleef. "Hey, think you could use your vine whip to get Pikachu and Cyndaquil over here?"

Bayleef nodded determandly and withdrew her vines, which traveled along the ground and to the cage. She carefully picked it up and pulled it back to them, placing it on the ground gently. With ne swift Razor Leaf the cage was destroyed, leaving a startled Pikachu and Cyndaquil unharmed.

Before Team Rocket awoke, Pikachu and the other Pokémon stood in a line. "Pikachu!" Pikachu called, waking the Rockets from their deep sleep. A wide grin spread across his face as Team Rocket's face's paled when they saw them. In one focused burst, the Pokémon released their attacks on the rocket's, sending them blasting off.

Pikachu sighed and grinned as Team Rocket dissapeared with a 'ping'. He turned back to Ash and ran towards him, but stopped when he saw Ash back away slightly. "Pikapi?"

"Sorry Pikachu," Ash said grinning sheepishly and scratching the back of his head. "I guess it's gonna take a little while for me to lose that fear of you guys." He explained.

Pikachu understood and nodded. [Well can we go back tothe others, I'm starving] He said as he stomach rumbled.

"Ya, me too, lets get going guys" Ash said, turning to head back. The other Pokémon followed him silently back to the camp.

He would lose his fear soon enough, and he could get back on the road to becoming a Pokémon Master. Hopefully something like this would NEVER happen again.
