Chapter 2 True Love

"Sure, Ash. What's up?" I said, walking to the deck. Now's the perfect time, I thought. I can tell him how I feel.

"You there. Can I battle you?" a hooded man said, walking up.

"I know that voice! Go! Pidgeot! Bow off his hood!" Ash said, throwing Pidgeot's poke ball. "Gust!"

"No!" the man said as his hood blew off and away.

"Dad. I thought… I thought you were dead. Why? Why, if you were alive all this time, didn't you come back? Why, Dad?!" Ash yelled, then ran off.
