Chapter 3


Author's Note: This chapter is going to be extremely fun because we are going to have co-starring the SPPF Drew Fan Club! Poor Drew.. He might not live for the next chapter. :P I apologize in advance if I don't get people in character. Don't kill me please ;. All I have to go on is posts and conversations so cut me a little slack. 

May walked around the Pokemon Center, pacing back and forward between the glass door and the desk where Nurse Joy resided. She huffed and plopped herself down abruptly on a crimson chair that was embossed with variations of different Pocket Monsters. She connected the evolutions to their first stages as if she were playing connect the dots, as her brick red and white gloves glided across the vinyl surface. Her sudden burst of energy disintegrated and dissolved and she was now reverted to her usual state. She glanced at a magazine rack that resided against a wall and a picture of a green haired co-ordinator was plastered on the front cover. She glared at the magazine in disbelief and scoffed silently to herself.

"Oh that Drew. He thinks he's SO great. But since this is a co-ordinator's ball, I wonder if Drew is going to be there. Knowing him he's probably too busy training and not going to show up at all. Oh well, if he's not there he can't rub it in my face about how many ribbons he has, I suppose." she sighed. "He can't have gotten many though. This ball is supposed to tell the rules of next year so I doubt he's gotten that far. But he was pretty good at the Hoenn Grand Festival last year. That Flygon of his was something else. And to think he had it the whole time and still managed to keep it hidden." She was interrupted halfway through her personal soliloquy by a sudden burst of light escaping from the side of her waist. The sudden beam of light formed into a shape of a creature that was cerulean and tan in color with a rather large stomach that did not fit its proportions.

"Munchlax, you really need to stop getting out of your Pokeball at random times," May sighed in defeat. The defiant Pokemon glanced around the Pokemon Center as if it had lost something that obtained great value. Its eyes gleamed as it spotted a porcelain fruit bowl filled with a cornucopia of varying fruits and candies. Munchlax darted to the bowl and sucked up the contents, leaving May quite disappointed. The Pokemon suddenly dropped to the floor and began to slumber. She grasped a white and red ball that was attached to her waist and used her pointer finger to press the small button in the middle. A beam of light attached itself to Munchlax while it was still in a stage of relaxation.

"I guess you really live up to your name. Munchlax; return," She stated. Seconds later the creature disappeared and returned back into its small habitat. "I'm surprised you can even fit in there, Munchlax."

"Munchlax still giving you trouble?" Ash commented as he found a seat next to May. "Reminds me of this Psyduck I used to know that belonged to Misty. The thing never wanted to stay in its Pokeball." he laughed. "I remember one time when I first began training in the Indigo League when Misty was so mean to it and it finally used some amazing psychic powers because its headache became so intense. We were all really surprised but we found out its headache was good for something!" Ash laughed. "It takes time, May. Don't give up on it."

"Hopefully one day Munchlax will learn to listen to me. Thanks Ash." May sighed as she rolled the Pokeball containing Munchlax back and forward on the table. May traced an imaginary line on the red vinyl surface of the table and rested her chin on her palm. May's mind flooded with thoughts and she remained unresponsive, staring off into a wall as if it were an action-packed horror movie. Max crept up behind her and tapped her lightly on the shoulder. May jumped out of her seat and turned around to face her younger sibling.

"Max! DON'T SNEAK UP ON ME LIKE THAT!" she screeched.

"May. Calm down. I just wanted to tell you that you should really be getting ready. It's almost time to go and you don't want to be late, believe it or not, " Max commented while he held his hands in a defensive position. May rose up out of her seat and nodded at her brother.

"Alright Max. Just give me a minute," May nonchalantly commented as she stared blankly out of the giant window of the Pokemon Center.

"I wonder.." May sighed as she rose up out of her seat.


"Is that who I think it is?" a voice squealed.

"It has to be! Look! There's that Roselia that look likes it's on steroids! It has got to be

his! I've never seen one so freaking big!"

"No.. It can't be. Doesn't he have training to do or something?"

"Wait, wait.. I think it is! IT'S DREW!"



"WE CAN'T LESS THIS ONE JUST PASS! Everyone, collect yourselves! Let's go talk to him! I go first!"


A thunderous boom of squealing echoed throughout the streets of Slateport City. Drew averted his gaze to the direction of the high-pitched giggles, slightly squinting his eyes at the dust cloud that slowly became more visible as the seconds deceased. Roselia turned her thorny-crowned head to see what the commotion was that was evolving in the street.

The dust cloud eventually evaporated, and a mob of females appeared from the dust. The group of girls all pointed in Drew's direction. Drew froze in his footsteps. He muttered under his breath a brief "Uh oh" before he waited to be attacked like how a snake would approach its prey. As the group approached closer and closer, the green haired co-ordinator waited to be greeted by his fans. A group of seven girls approached, all differentiating in physical appearance. A girl with raven hair that reached her waist sprinted up to the Pokémon trainer as his back was turned and embraced the trainer in a tackle-glomp, nearly making them plummet onto the hard terrain. Drew froze in place and blushed slightly as the night-colored haired girl released him from her embrace.

"Hi! I'm Kiori." The black haired girl introduced.

"I guess you already know who I am." Drew laughed.

Kiori chuckled to herself. Drew stuck out his hand, as he exchanged a handshake with her. Kiori stuck her hand out and accepted his hand rapidly and shook it gently; not letting it go until thirty seconds later. The other girls squeaked with excitement. Drew glanced at them as sweat dripped down his temples.

"It's nice to meet you. Who are your friends?" Drew inquired while eyeing the rest of the group.

"Well.. You see.. Maybe they should just introduce themselves. Hey all of you get over here! NOW!"

A girl with mahogany tinted hair and brown eyes approached him. She stuck out her hand and Drew accepted. They exchanged greeting and she finally introduced herself.

"Hi. I'm Sweet May. How are you doing?" She casually introduced.

"Hello. It is nice to meet you too. I'm fine." Drew responded.

"Yes you are." A voice coughed and Drew looked at the group, slightly surpised at the unknown person's forwardness. His eyes widened and a slight hue of crimson swept across his cheeks.

"I bet you know someone else named May, don't you Drew?" a girl with golden hair and emerald eyes commented while smirking mischievously.

"Uhh…" Drew muttered lowly under his breath, while a rose tint swept across his cheeks. Quickly he retaliated and came back with a snide remark. "May can't even say the name of a liechi berry correctly. She's a joke" He shot back quickly. His stomach sunk to the bottom of his toes as guilt infected and plagued his mind.

"Sure. Whatever you say." the blonde stated sarcastically. "Anyways, I'm Tiffany. It's nice to meet you. Sorry about that. I talk too much some times."

"Don't worry about it." Drew chuckled. "Nice to meet you also." Drew looked at the remaining fan girls and waited patiently for the rest of the introductions.

He flicked his luxurious emerald tresses to the opposite side of his forehead as the girls squealed with delight. Drew caught this sudden break of emotion and raised his eyebrow slightly as a drip of sweat rolled quickly down his browbone. Another fan with a mix of sienna and dandelion hair and earth colored orbs approached him, grabbing his arm in the process.

"Hi! I'm Chelsea!" she added as she poked him lightly in the side of his waist. She slightly giggled and covered her mouth with her hands. "Oh! And this is Ama!" she introduced as a girl with dark hair and gothic attire approached Drew.

"Don't worry. I don't bite," she chuckled. "I just like Toast a lot, you see. Any kind of Toast will do. Gothic Toast with eyeliner if anything. So pretty," Ama sighed. The rest of the group chuckled and Drew still looked just as confused, even if more so. Drew registered all the clues in his mind as if it were a puzzle and came up with a verdict that would describe their behavior- these were a group of fan girls.

"Speaking of May...You know you waited for her in the final contest, Drew. You can't lie." Kiori added.

"And another thing. WHY didn't Ash go in for the glomp also? It was the perfect opportunity!" Drew stared at her slightly bewildered with his mouth agape and Kiori just grinned. A girl with cerulean tinted hair and ocean blessed eyes emerged from the cluster of estrogen and introduced herself.

"Hi. I'm Umi. Don't worry; I'm the mild fan girl," she introduced.

"And this is Alopec," she pointed at a girl who seemed rather shy. She had shoulder length auburn hair and eyes that matched. She meekly approached the infamous coordinator and stuck out her hand. "Hi. It's nice to meet you. You are a great coordinator."

"Nice to meet you also" he added, sighing. "How many times have I said that today?" he questioned jokingly.

"Seven I think. Yeah, I bet all these introductions are getting rather repetitious," Sweet May added. "We should go find something else to do."

"Well I really should be going. I am obligated to go this co-ordinators ball and I need to go find something to wear." Drew stated. "I really don't want to go but it has the rules for the next Grand Festival."

"Oooh! Let all of us help you out! Please?" Kiori squealed. Ama agreed with her comment by nodding her head. Suddenly she got a sudden gleam of excitement in her orbs and turned around to face the rest of the fan club. She shielded a side of her mouth with her hand and whispered so Drew could not hear.

"We get to dress up the Toast. I'm going to make him try on a maid's outfit. Just you watch." she chuckled deviously and the others giggled quite as well.

"I don't think that would be a good idea. I'd rather just do this alone. Well I got to go. I have a big day ahead of me."

"Aww. Ok," Chelsea stated. The rest of the girls looked at him with disappointment swimming in their orbs.

"Noooo!" Kiori screamed as she grasped Drew's left arm. Roselia slightly chuckled as she averted her gaze to her owner and his fan.

"Let's just leave Toast alone for now. We'll probably meet up with him later," Ama added, emphasizing the "for now".

"Hopefully we'll meet again?" Drew questioned as he flicked his hair once again.

"Of course," Sweet May added.

"Hopefully," Alopec inquired.

"See ya!" he waved as his figure and his Pokemon's was slowly swallowed by the horizon. A mixed cornucopia of goodbyes with different harmonizing pitches were heard as Drew disappeared. Drew continued to walk and he raised his left hand in the air, signaling a goodbye wave without even turning around.

"That was quite interesting, wasn't it?" he laughed as he threw his emerald dresses to the opposing side of his face.

"Rose, rose," The flower adorned Pokemon commented with her rose-like hands interlaced with one another. Drew chuckled and rested his gaze upon Roselia as he smirked.

"I think it's been a long day Roselia. Tonight is that co-ordinator's ball, it's crazy how time flies," Drew commented, staring off into the distance. Brilliant hues of periwinkle and rose adorned the canvas of the sky as the background to a brilliant golden orb that shone marvelously. He glanced around quickly and caught glimpse of a giant clock tower. "I really need to find something to wear. Let's look at that store, it seems it would have something to fit the occasion, doesn't it Roselia?" Drew commented, pointing to a quaint lavender looking store with lace accents that adorned the naked borders. "I saw May and her little friends there just a few days ago. I wonder if she's going to this thing." Drew dazed as he subconsciously strolled into the store. Drew glanced at the same brilliant stained glass display that resided on the wall of the store. He sighed a quick "humph" and continued his way into the store, flicking his tresses to the left side of his face.

Ohhh yeah. Took 7 months, but I finally got it done. I've been busy. I hate being a Junior. One more year left of high school, then it's the big time.

I apologize about the lack of updates. I'll try to update more. :)
