She just keeps on trying,

and she smiles,

and you feel like crying.

On and on, on and on, on and on...

Two Pokemon trainers reluctantly sat on the ground in Ilex Forest, apparently stuck together for the night.

The girl was studying the red-headed boy, while he glared at her from beneath his wild mane. They sat cross-leged and faced each other.

She frowned and brushed his hair out of his eyes.

"There, now you look much nicer!"

He was giving her a sarcastic look, one that said 'Get away from me before I bite off your arm.'

"People will be able to see you better if you wore your hair back off of your face."

She stared at him, thinking.

"You have nice eyes...I mean, pretty eyes...err, they are a lovely shade of..." Seeing she was embarrassing herself, she stopped.

He rose an eyebrow at both her compliment and her blush.

He noticed that her hand was still hovering by his cheek.

He slapped her hand away from his face, and started to stand up to leave.

She just wouldn't let him. She grabbed his arm in a vicegrip and caused him to stumble back to the ground.

"Oh no you don't! You're not leaving me in Ilex Forest all alone!"

He heard the fear in her voice, cracking through.

"I may have defeated all the gyms in Jhoto and Kanto, and beaten the Elite Four, but I'm still afraid of the dark!"

Her grip on him tightened.

He sighed and sat back down. Her hair was a bit dishelved by her sudden lunge for him, and he couldn't help but reach out and place a loose strand of hair behind her ear.

Her eyes widened considerably, and so did his.

His hand did not leave it's position where it lightly brushed against her cheek.

This would have been an awkward position for any old girl and guy, but this time it was different.

They were RIVALS. Nothing could happen between them...

Or could it? Who said they couldn't?

Tension was building between the two teens...What could possibly happen next?

AN: Hah hah, cliffhanger! Please review! Do you guys like it? And to think, this started out as 'ZOMG, Silver totally loves Crystal! And he does the hair thing! It's SOO CLICHE! Yay!'
