Okay guys, this is my first fanfic so it may not be that good. Please post any suggestions that anyone may have. It may be a little short.


"Finally, we made it to the Fortree City Gym", said an confident Ash Ketchum, "I'm gonna go in there and win my 6th badge!"

"Don't get to overconfident," replied May

"What's that supposed to mean May?" Ash said turning to face her with an almost angry expression on his face.

"Well, how can you be so sure that you're going to win?" said May "Winona's probably extremely powerful, so I'm just saying that I wouldn't get my hopes to high if I were you."

Ash's face was about the color of bright red right now, and the two looked like they wanted to have a go at each other."

"Now, what's the use of arguing with each other?" said an irritated Brock "Why don't we just go in and see what the match will turn out like."

"Yeah, there's no point of fighting about the match if there hasn't even been one yet." said Max who was now in the middle pushing the two away from each other. "Ok, then lets go!" said Ash, as he turned away from May and walked to the door, Brock and Max following behind him.

'Why can't I tell him?' May thought to herself, 'I always just end up fighting with him instead." She then sighed and went to catch up with the rest of them.

"Hi, I'm Ash Ketchum from Pallet Town and I'm here for a gym battle!" Ash said as they walked through the door into a large circular room. "Here we go again." May mumbled to herself. "What was that May?" Max asked. Oh, Nothing Max." May replied quickly.

Suddenly a woman came through the door on the opposite side of the room. She had long blonde hair and was wearing a long jean skirt with a black tank top. "Hi, I'm Julie and I work her for Winona, you must be her for a gym" she was cut off by Brock before she could say anymore. "Julie, I will follow your heart everywhere you go and" He was then cut off by Max who pulled him away by his right ear. "Come on, we're not here for that Brock." Said an irritated Max.

"As I, was saying," said Julie, "I'm afraid that Winona's not here right now. She's attending to something up in Mt. Chimney, and I'm afraid that she won't be back for two more days."

"Well, I guess we'll have to stay in the pokemon center until she gets back." said May

"Oh, but I was really looking forward to my gym battle today." said Ash sounding very disappointed."

"Well, I guess you will just have to wait a few more days for that.," replied Max who was still holding Brock by the ear.

When they arrived at the pokemon center a while later, Max was again holding Brock by the ear. "I'm sorry, but we don't have any more rooms available." said Nurse Joy to the group of them.

"So, I guess we'll have to camp out." said May.

"Yeah, we have no other choice." agreed Ash.

"Well we'd better head out and find a good spot to camp before it gets really dark out." said Max.

"Um, Max could you let go of my ear, it's really starting to hurt." said Brock as they started walking towards the door. "Not until we get outside Brock.," replied an annoyed Max.

"Well this looks like a good spot to spend the night." said Brock a few minutes after they had entered the forest and found a nice little clearing. "How about I make us some dinner now, how does rice balls and soup sound?"

"Awesome" replied Max, Ash, and May.

"Now May and Ash you go and get us some firewood, and Max you came and help me with dinner." said Brock.

"Ok" the three replied

Max then walked over to Brock to help him with dinner while Ash and May went into the forest to gather firewood.

When they entered the forest they didn't speak for a few minutes. Then May broke the silence by saying, "Nice night out tonight." Then Ash replied by saying, "Yeah, it is." They both then looked at each other and they both blushed, but then they turned away immediately.

They walked around in the forest gathering wood and then they started heading back to the campsite.

May then stopped for a minute and told Ash that she needed to tell him something. "What is it?" he asked stopping also right next to her. "I.........."

So tell me what you think. I'm working on chap 2 right now so tell me if you have any suggestions.
