A Clumsy Confession

"This looks like a nice place. Right, Ash?" a young brunette girl asked her now boyfriend. She started laying out a blanket on the soft grass on top of a hill. She was having a picnic with her boyfriend as a celebration for officially becoming a couple. Her boyfriend, Ash Ketchum, was carrying a basket full of food that they were gonna share on this perfect evening.

Ash was smiling while setting down the basket and bringing out the food, plates, salad, and eating utensils. He couldn't believe it, the woman he loved actually liked him back. He could still remember how the conversation went just the day before…

Ash was nervous. He was about to confess his love to his best friend May Maple. He stood there in the living room of his home in Pallet, watching his love of his life conversing with their friend Dawn Blirtz. "\'Aw man,' he thought to himself 'What am I supposed to tell her, "Hey May, listen I love you. Will you be my girlfriend?".' he shook his head. "That's weak".

Ever since Ash and May departed in Kanto, Ash had been missing more and more of his coordinator friend. When she visited him in Sinnoh he felt so happy and excited. She looked so beautiful in her new clothes that she bought. He was so shy around her and everyone noticed, everyone except May of course. She was as dense as Ash when it came to noticing clues about romantic feelings.

"Just tell her!" He yelled inside his head, "Maybe you'll have a chance. I mean she hasn't mentioned Drew at all yet." He waited a couple seconds before finally having the courage to tell her.

As he walked towards her, time seemed to stop. He was getting more and more nervous the closer he got and when he stood behind her he almost collapsed. He tapped her shoulder causing her to turn around with a confused look. After seeing who it was she smiled.

"Hey Ash!" she smiled cheerfully, "What's up?" she looked at him with her hands behind her back looking cute as ever. Ash's cheeks blushed tremendously. Dawn, seeing the blush on the raven haired boy, knew what he was about to do and excused herself. After waving goodbye to her friend, May asked Ash, "So Ash, what's up? Again." she giggled.

Ash blushed even more. Her laugh was music to his ears. Just listening to it made his heart flutter. He looked down at his feet, "Um, I just wanted to tell you something. Something important" He looked towards his left scratching the back of his head.

"Oh. What?" she was now curious as to what he was going to ask. "C'mon, don't keep me in suspense." she giggled once again, making Ash smile softly. He looked at him with those beautiful sapphire eyes. He finally decided to let it all out.

"May. I love you," he cringed. That wasn't what he wanted to say. He looked at her face, bracing for the slap and continuous insults… but it never came.

She was confused, but in her eyes he saw hope. Wait, hope? "You what? Ash?" she was now looking him with a serious face. "Did you just say you love me?" she was shaking. Was she angry? Upset? He didn't know.

Ash sighed. "Yes," he looked at her eyes deeply, "I love you, May. For a long time I've loved you. I'm sorry if this was so sudden, but I had to tell you. You're everything to me, May. When I was in Sinnoh, all I could think about was you. I missed you so much, May. I- I can't explain it because I'm not good at this kind of stuff, but I know you mean so much to me that goes far more than friendship." he continued to look at his sapphire orbs. She had tears in her eyes. 'Oh now look at what you've done. You made her cry. Good job, idiot.' he cursed himself for making the girl he loved cry.

He looked down at his feet again, " I understand if you don't feel the same way." he started turning around, ready to walk out the house to clear his mind, but a hand stopped him. He looked at the small hand on his shoulder and turned around to see a smiling, crying May.

"You dummy!" she said, "I love you too!" she lunged at him and kissed him. The kiss was passionate. It was their first kiss and was still amazing. May hugged Ash tightly not wanting to let go. But after a few seconds, they did in order to breath. "I love you too, Ash. You have no idea how happy I am." she wiped her tears and kissed him again. The rest of the night was spent with the new couple kissing, hugging and cuddling together.

May was lying on the blanket looking at the clouds. Chewing on a piece of sandwich. She looked towards Ash and smiled her caring smile. She motioned for him to lay down next to her and he obliged. She passed him a sandwich for himself and continued to stare up into the clouds.

Ash simply looked at his girlfriend; happy that yesterday went just right. He grabbed her hand and squeezed, which she returned. "I love you." she turned to him with the biggest smile she could muster.

"I love you too."
