Author's Note: Yay! I'm proud to say that for the first time, I'm not apologizing for a slow update! It really hasn't been that long.
I'm both pleased and sad to report that this will be my last installment of this story. That's right – Chapter 7 is the mind boggling conclusion. I REALLY hope you like it.
Thanks to Bizarre Psyduck, john, RAW19, and Lady Leah of Chaos for their reviews.
RAW19 – LOVED the joke. Hope you don't mind, but I'm so gonna use it. Thanks a billion!
Well, I enjoyed writing the conclusion, so I hope you enjoyed reading it!
Disclaimer: Don't own pokémon. Trying really hard, but it's not looking good.
Common sense, yes, but read the other chapters before this one!
"Oh my God!" Misty shouted again.
"Misty!" said Brock, coming towards the room, "What is it? I heard you screaming… I just got back from the pokémon center – Nurse Joy dumped me. Anyway, why did you---" He trailed off, recognizing the scene in front of him.
"Oh… My… God…" said Brock.
"It's not what it looks like!" said Ash, quickly pulling away from Gary.
Misty cringed. "What is it?"
"Well," said Ash, "I just broke up with May… and Gary got turned down by you… We were, er, comforting each other."
"Wait," said Brock, "When did you break up with May?"
Ash shrugged. "About five minutes ago…"
"And…" continued Misty, "For some strange reason, you thought Gary would be a good replacement for her?"
"Well," said Ash, "Gary was there, and--- oh, hey! That's right! You like me, too!"
Misty froze. "Uh… no I don't."
"Oh," said Ash, "Sorry. Brock said you did."
"Brock!" shouted Misty.
"I didn't do anything…" mumbled Brock, gazing innocently at the ceiling.
"Forget it, Ash," said Gary, "You don't need her."
"It's over, Gary," said Ash.
Gary shrugged. "Okay."
"So, Misty," said Ash, "Do you want to go out with me?"
Misty smiled. "I'd love to, Ash, but--- I can't."
"Well," said Misty, "I'm going out with Brock now."
"What?" said Brock and Ash in unison.
Misty kicked Brock in the shins. "That's right," she added sweetly.
"Oh," said Brock, "Right. Me and Misty. Yeah…"
Nurse Joy and Officer Jenny were seated inside the Pokémon Center watching TV. As they watched, they rolled their eyes as the 'Lucky Bombs' commercial came on.
"Lucky Bombs," said the spokesperson charismatically, "They're magically exploding! Not FDA approved. Eat at your own risk."
"Nurse Joy," said Officer Jenny, squinting at the man on the television, "That's not the man that was in here yesterday…"
"What do you mean?" she asked.
"I mean– you were conned. That was no cereal guy…"
"Oh, no," said Nurse Joy, "Not again… why does this always happen to me?"
Officer Jenny stared at her. "You meet men posing as cereal advertisers often?"
"Of course," said Nurse Joy. "Don't you?"
"Oh," said Nurse Joy, thoughtfully, "Well, at least you got that tip where his brother was…"
"Yeah," nodded Officer Jenny in agreement, "I sent the troops to Canada, but they haven't found anyone yet… I wonder if---" she trailed off, comprehension drawing in her mind.
"What's wrong?" asked Nurse Joy.
"We were both conned," said Officer Jenny, "There is no Rock. That was Brock!"
Nurse Joy groaned.
"Wait," said Officer Jenny, jumping to her feet, "This is wonderful! I watched him walk home last night! I know exactly where he is!"
Nurse Joy's eyes widened. "Really?"
"Really. I need to round up some people…" She jumped up and ran from the pokémon center.
Nurse Joy sighed. "Now what?"
Back at the Mansion…
"Jessie?" said James, approaching her.
"Yeah?" said Jessie.
"Will you… marry me?"
Jessie looked at him. "Oh, you're serious! But, uh… why?"
James shrugged. "I realized that I don't like May. I like you. And we're old enough to get married, so I figured – what the heck."
Jessie stared at him. "It's kinda sudden."
Jessie thought about it. "Well… okay!"
"Here," said James, handing her a ring, "Stole it from a six year old."
"How nice!" said Jessie, admiring the ring. "By the way, I'm glad you're not gay."
"He's not gay?" said Meowth, approaching them.
"Nope," said Jessie, "He's marrying me."
Meowth stared at them. "Do I have to be the flower girl?
"Um… no," said James.
"That's great!" said Meowth.
The rest of the characters were seated in the living room when Team Rocket came running in.
"I'm getting married!" shouted Jessie.
They stared at her.
"To James!" she continued.
They continued to stared.
"You all suck," said Jessie, sitting down as well.
A loud knock was heard at the door.
"The door's open!" shouted Drew.
"You keep the door open and you live in a mansion?" questioned Ash.
"Yeah," said Drew, "What's your point?"
"You could be robbed!" said Ash.
"Brock!" shouted Nurse Joy as the door flew open, "I have horrible news!"
"Oh, shit!" said Misty, as she and all the other convicts dove behind the furniture.
"Um…" began Brock, "You must be mistaken. I'm Rock!"
"It's okay, Brock," said Nurse Joy, "I figured it out. I'm here to warn all your friends. Officer Jenny's on her way!"
Brock paused. "Why are you telling me this?" he asked.
Nurse Joy sighed. "Because I'm sorry. I shouldn't have slapped you… and I'd like to go out with you sometime."
"Hey, Misty," said Ash, "Looks like you lost your boyfriend…"
Misty shrugged. "Easy come, easy go."
"So, do you want to go out with me sometime?"
Misty laughed. "Fine. You win. I'll go out with you.
"Excuse me," said Jessie, loudly, "I think we have more pressing matters at hand. Did you not hear the woman? Officer Jenny is on the way!"
"She's here," came a voice from the doorway. "What's going on?" said Officer Jenny, entering the gathering.
She looked around the room. "Ah ha!" she exclaimed, "The missing convicts! I'm placing you all under arrest!"
"Officer Jenny," said Gary, stepping forward, "I'm these kids' lawyer. I have to say, they're innocent."
"Oh, yeah?" snapped Officer Jenny, "Why should I believe that?"
"Settle down," said Gary, "I'll explain. But first, I know just the joke to cheer you up."
Every person in the room groaned.
"No, listen," said Gary, "Why did Mr. Stupid- tiptoe past the medicine cabinet?"
"Why?" said Officer Jenny.
"To get to the other side!" Gary exclaimed.
(Compliments of RAW19. 'Why did Mr. Stupid tiptoe past the medicine cabinet?' 'So he wouldn't wake the sleeping pills!' 'Why did the chicken cross the road?' 'To get to the other side!' Thanks again!)
Officer Jenny cracked up. "To get to the other--- oh my god! That's hilarious!" She doubled over, laughing.
"What just happened?" whispered Misty.
"I think she thought it was funny…" Ash replied.
"But… it wasn't."
"Alright," said Officer Jenny, "Anyone this funny has to be alright. I release all the charges!"
"What?" came the voice of all the convicts…er, ex-convicts.
"You heard me!" she said. "You have to tell me how you come up with those jokes," she added to Gary.
Gary nodded. "Can do."
"Then everyone's free to go!" exclaimed Officer Jenny.
The group smiled. Gary did it. Gary actually did it. Irony of ironies, huh?
Well, our heroes were free… The Jail Break was a success.
(I'm bad with endings… sue me!)
Free from their jail sentence, all the members were able to go on with their life. Even Team Rocket stayed out of jail.
Ash resumed his pokémon training, both Misty and Pikachu at his side. Sorry Advance Shippers!
Drew and May continued their--- coordinating. (I dunno, is that a word?) They worked together, but of course, had to face off on occasion. Drew usually won.
Jessie and James did get married, but they were only twenty, so, ya know, they had to drink grape juice at their wedding. Oh, and Meowth was the flower girl.
Max became a super genius. No surprises there, right?
Brock set up a breeding area near the pokémon center so he'd be closer to Nurse Joy.
And Gary, of course, went on tour for comedy, opening for booing crowds all over the world. Officer Jenny went as both his girlfriend and his manager. Yeah, she's kinda old for him… but at least he's not gay!
Well, that's about everyone!
I guess they all lived happily ever after.
(Yeah… I'm bad with epilogues, too!)
Author's Note: Well, that's it! I hope you liked it! Please review and tell me your thoughts (it was awesome, amazing, unbelievable horribly, ect.). I appreciate it.
Thanks to all the readers and reviewers! I had a lot of fun writing this!
Look out for me for additional fan fics. I might be writing and AAML fic after this… then probably an Ash+May story just to even the field a bit. Maybe… I won't make any guarantees yet.
Anyway, that's all I have for now.
Thanks so much for reading!
