Chapter 10 – Misty's Plan


"Will you marry me?" Ash's voice rang through May's head. Marry Ash? That's what she had dreamed of ever since she had met him! But why was she finding it so hard to answer him? The box that he held out in front of her contained the most beautiful diamond ring that she had ever seen, not to mention she loved Ash more than anything in the entire world…

"I… I don't know what to say," May finally said, breathless.

"You could say yes," Ash said.

"Y… yes!" May finally exclaimed. "Yes, of course I will marry you!"

"So… the twerps are getting married?" Jessie said. "You can't really help being happy for them. After all, we are on the same side now…"

Misty, meanwhile, had been watching the whole scene from her window.

"Great," she sighed. "I love Ash, but he's just so happy with May… I tried to break them up years ago… I don't think I could do it again. And I wouldn't…" Suddenly, an angel Misty and a devil Misty appeared on Misty's shoulders.

'Of course you want to ruin their relationship!' The devil said. 'You've loved Ash much longer than she has!'

'But Ash does not love you. After what you did to him and May years ago… how could he? I think he hates you now… by leaving them alone you might be able to keep your friendship with both of them,' Misty's shoulder angel said.

'Don't listen to a word she says!' the shoulder devil said. 'She's crazy.'

'If I'm crazy, so are you,' the shoulder angel said. 'Oops, I said something mean!' The angel vanished in a poof of smoke.

"I guess the evil side of me won," Misty said. "Now, I have to get Ash back somehow…"

'You never had Ash,' the shoulder devil said.

"Good point," Misty said.


"Congratulations, you two," Wes said.

"Yes, congratulations!" Rui said.

"Thanks, everyone," Ash said. "Now, if you don't mind…"

"Ash and I need to do talk privately," May said. She walked with Ash up to their room; however, in the doorway, there was a little surprise…

"Congratulations, you two! I saw the whole scene from the window!" Misty said, standing in front of their door. 'God, I can't believe I'm saying this… I can't believe I'm going to break them up either… they look so cute together! What am I saying! Now, back to business.'

"Misty… what an unpleasant surprise," May said. "I know that you aren't happy for us. Now, can you please excuse us so we can get into our room?"

"How do you know Ash doesn't want to talk to me?" Misty said.

"Because I said I don't," Ash said. "Don't even try and break us up, because I never loved you. May and I are getting married no matter what you do."

'Not if I have anything to say about it…' Misty thought. "Fine, then…" Misty said. "I'll leave you two to your room." Misty walked into her own room.

"I wonder what that was all about," Ash said.

"What does it matter?" May said from in the room. "Now come in here." Ash walked into the room slowly and closed the door.

"May?" Ash asked. He couldn't see May anywhere.

"Over here," May's voice said from over by the bed.

"Ok," Ash said, walking over to the bed. May jumped up from the side and tackled Ash onto the bed, kissing him.

"I can't believe you proposed to me!" May exclaimed. "Ash, I've been waiting for this day for three years!"

"You have?" Ash asked.

"Of course," May said. "The only reason I didn't make any move in the past three years was because I thought you didn't love me anymore… I can't believe we're getting married!" May rested on the bed next to Ash. "I love you."

"I love you, more than anything in the world," Ash said, putting his arm around her and locking lips with her in a passionate kiss.

Meanwhile in Misty's room…

"They sound so corny… 'Oh, I love you Ash! I love you May!'… They could at least keep it down. It's like they're trying to mock me," Misty said. "Oh, well. By the time Ash and May say 'I do,' I'll have them both under my control…"

Back in Ash and May's room…

((I'm going to put Misty's thoughts in italics.))

"So," May said. "When did you want the wedding to be?"

"I was thinking soon, like two months," Ash said.

Two months!

"Really? I was hoping sooner…" May said.

"Well," Ash said, tickling May under the chin, "We can have the wedding any time you want! We just have to give our relatives and friends time to get here."

"How about in two weeks?" May said.

"Two weeks? That's rushing it a little bit, don't you think?" Ash said, sitting up.

"Fine," May said, sitting up as well. She flung her arms around Ash's neck. "How about in three weeks?"


"That's probably enough time," Ash said, looking over his shoulder at May.

"Kiss me," May said. Ash turned his body around and started to make out with May, lying down on the bed.

Could they be any more gooey and romantic?

May finally separated lips from Ash.

"I'm tired…" May said, yawning. "I think I'll take a little nap." May fell asleep with her head on Ash's shoulder.

"I guess I'd better rest up also…" Ash said, falling asleep with his forehead against May's.

Awe, they're so cute… I almost wish I didn't have to break them up. Almost being the key word.

- 30 minutes later –

Ash heard knocks on the door that abruptly woke him up.

"Huh? Who's there?" Ash said, yawning.

"It's us," Wes and Rui said. "We kind of wanted to come into our part of the room…"

"Right," Ash said. He got up from the bed, leaving May asleep, and opened the door.

"Thanks!" Wes and Rui said in unison, running off to the door that separated the two rooms.

"I wonder why those two were in such a hurry…" Ash said. "Ah, well."

"Ashy! Where did you go off to?" He heard May's voice say.

"Coming, May!" Ash went back to the bed. "Time to get up!"

"Morning already?" May said half asleep.

"It was never night," Ash said.



"I don't want to get up…"

"Then I'll have to make you."

"Ok… do I really have to get up?"

"Yes, May."

"Oh, all right, Ashy," May said as she got out of bed. "Any signs of Cipher returning here?"

"May, we just beat off Nascour. I don't think they'll be coming here for quite a while."

"Ok, then," May said. "Hungry?" Ash grinned.

"When am I not?" Ash replied.

They're going out to dinner – now's my chance!

As Ash and May left the room, Misty snuck in unnoticed.

"Now, time to get down to business!" Misty said. She put a small unnoticeable camera on the ceiling of the room. "Whatever they do, I can now see!" Misty said. She went back to her room and pushed a button on the television screen switching it to Video 2. "Hahahahaha!" Misty said. "Now, I can spy on their every move!"

"Good work!" Her shoulder devil said. They both started to laugh maniacally together.

- 2 hours later -

"Man, I'm full!" Ash said, coming back into the room with May.

"Me too - I don't think I could eat another bite!"

"I'll be right back up," Ash said. "I just want to go see if the others have settled into their room."

"Ok, Ashy! I'll be waiting for you!" May kissed Ash on the cheek and left the room.

"I'll be back soon!" Ash said leaving the room.

"Woo hoo!" May yelled jumping on to the bed. "I can't beleive Ash and I are getting married! It's like a dream come true!"

Yeah, my dream.

- 15 minutes later -

"May?" Ash said, entering the room. "Where are you now?"

Ash searched the whole room, unable to find her. He opened the door between the two rooms, and saw Wes and Rui on the bed kissing.

"A little privacy here?" Wes said.

"Sorry. Have you seen May?" Ash asked.

"Not since earlier," Wes said.

"Ok, sorry," Ash said. He closed the door and Wes and Rui went back to kissing. 'Maybe she's in the bathroom...' Ash thought. He went up to the bathroom door.

"May? Are you in there?"

"Yeah," Ash heard May say. "Come in." Ash opened the door and entered the bathroom.

"I thought you said you were in here?" Ash said, looking around.

"I am, silly! Over here!" May said. Ash turned her head and saw May in the hot tub.

"Ummm... I think I'd better leave," Ash said.

"No, come in!" May said.

"I can't... my bandages. They'll come off," Ash said as a grim reminder of what had happned just yesterday.

"Don't worry," May said. "If they do, we can put new ones on."

"I guess," Ash said. "I could come in for a little while."

- 1 hour later -

"I guess it's time for bed," May said, leaving the bathroom with a towel wrapped around her.

"Yeah, I guess," Ash came out of the bathroom in a black bathrobe.

"I'm going to go get dressed," May said, going back in to the bathroom. "I'll be right back."

"Ok," Ash said. He laid down in the bed and waited for May to come out.

I can't believe it... I have to get over there and make Ash hate May right now!

But before Misty could do anything, May walked out of the bathroom in a nightgown. She laid down on the bed next to Ash.

"Night, Ashy!" She said before kissing him on the cheek and closing her eyes.

"Night," Ash said, putting his arm around her and going to sleep.

All right! They're both asleep! Time for some sabtoge!

Misty crept into Ash and May's room, unnoticed by either of them, and got to work.
