I'm Sorry again for the late update... oh well... I can't do anything to fix this bad habit of mine since that I'm cramped up with all of these schoolwork, strict bedtime, very limited internet access, and worst of all... our computer just got busted and I'm stuck with my laptop for a few days... It's easier to write a story on a computer than a laptop that I just realized now...

Anyway, I'd like to thank the people who like to read this story and I'm sorry for the wrong grammars because English is not my first language and I kinda rush writing these because my mom hates it when I stay up late at night lounging on the computer chair... (ahh, LIFE!) and lastly... my computer was being stupid (I got that line from another author) SERIOUSLY!

Well based on my poor updates, I can't make promises about sooner updates (for now)... I really need to fix my schedule... I'm just a newbie at this and I still can't get the hang of it... I get amazed by the other authors who can balance their school or work with this hobby... )

I'll just clear things up a bit in this chapter on why May suddenly left, give some "clues" on who's Drew's first love, and why Norman and Caroline can't tell Drew nor Daniel where May's heading to...

LAPTOP!... MICROSOFT WORD!... AND TYPE! XD (get it?... lights!... camera... action?... ah forget it...)

-:XOX:-

Summary:

... uhh... just go with the flow...

(insert cricket sounds here)

OKAY! It's about CONTESTSHIPPING!

(insert cricket sound here)

I GIVE UP!... I don't know for now... my mind has a mind of it's own (if that's possible... NOT!)

Chapter 3

The Masked Singer

-:XOX:-

May sped off the highway with her motorcycle. (A/N: is that legal?, and at the age of 15?! Please tell me if it is) After avoiding some traffic police, she finally reached her destination.

The place she stopped by was a big building with "POKEMON RECORDS" written on it's big and flashy billboard sign (just imagine the most expensive, exquisite, and biggest building... you get the picture?)

The brunette drove slowly towards the gate with 2 guards standing on each side. She lowered her hood to reveal a face with a glittery beautifly mask and once the guards recognized who she is, they swiftly opened the gates for her and also made some phone calls to notify the staffs that the star is in the building.

She finally got inside. She walked with poise and grace and each passerby that saw her would stare at her with their mouths open wide and some saliva dripping out of it (JUST SOME!). When she reached the elevator, the people inside the elevator also stared at her. When the elevator reached the 29th floor, she got out and walked through the halls. The halls were empty since it is night time. She opened the last door on the left of the hall that had a "STUDIO" sign imprinted in glittery paint on it.

"MAY! About time you came!" a blue haired girl shouted at her.

"yeah, we were worried that you had been hoarded with fan boys again like last time" a short haired brunette with her arms crossed followed up the blue haired girl.

"I'm sorry Dawn, it's just that I'm having a bad hair day right now" May walked towards the girls. "and no Hikari, I was not hoarded by my fanboys this time."

"Whatever, let's just get this started, my big bro's next in this room and he has been waiting for hours, lucky for you, his girlfriend is there to keep him company and to control his temper." A blonde guy wearing a white hat holding drumsticks warned May.

"Oopsie!... we better hurry up then... what song will we be recording now?" May took hold of the microphone with pink rhinestones decorated on it (like Avril Lavigne's on her Best Damn Thing music video)

"how about Thousand Miles?" a maroon haired guy suggested.

"HUH? I didn't see you there, Daisuke" May blinked at the guy (not wink in flirting... as in blink in shock! THIS IS CONTESTSHIPPING!)

"You always forget about me" Daisuke sulked in one corner... muttering something...

"I'm sorry!... how about I make it up to you by letting you borrow my-"

"YACHT!" Daisuke cut off May and jumped in joy all around the studio

"okay..., but only for a week" May sighed and got in position.

"yes!... SCORE!... I finally have a place for my date!" Daisuke cried with tears of joy while doing a "happy dance" with his guitar.

A vein popped out of Dawn's head. "Can we start now?!" She was fuming about now.

"okay, Takeru, countings please" Hikari signalled the group to take hold of their musical instruments.

"One, Two, Three, Four" Takeru beat his two drumsticks together...

The intro started with Hikari playing the keyboard with grace.

Making my way downtown
Walking fast
Faces passed
And I'm home bound

Staring blankly ahead
Just making my way
Making my way
Through the crowd

And I need you
And I miss you
And now I wonder...

If I could fall
Into the sky
Do you think time
Would pass me by
'Cause you know I'd walk
A thousand miles
If I could
Just see you
Tonight

It's always times like these
When I think of you
And I wonder
If you ever
Think of me

'Cause everything's so wrong
And I don't belong
Living in your
Precious memories

'Cause I need you
And I miss you
And now I wonder...

If I could fall
Into the sky
Do you think time
Would pass me by
'Cause you know I'd walk
A thousand miles
If I could
Just see you
Tonight

And I, I
Don't want to let you know
I, I
Drown in your memory
I, I
Don't want to let this go
I, I
Don't...

Making my way downtown
Walking fast
Faces passed
And I'm home bound

Staring blankly ahead
Just making my way
Making my way
Through the crowd

And I still need you
And I still miss you
And now I wonder...

If I could fall
Into the sky
Do you think time
Would pass us by
'Cause you know I'd walk
A thousand miles
If I could
Just see you...

If I could fall
Into the sky
Do you think time
Would pass me by
'Cause you know I'd walk
A thousand miles
If I could
Just see you
If I could
Just hold you
Tonight

May finished the song and applaud themselves for a wonderful performance.

They were then surprised to see a guy with blonde hair with a short-haired brunette standing on his left by the studio screen.

"hey, that was good" the guy walked inside the recording session room.

"You have an awesome voice... Beautifly" the girl offered May a handshake.

"Thanks" May accepted the handshake. She looked at her band mates for a brief moment and then Takeru spoke up.

"Hey big bro Yamato, we were just done using the studio, you can use it now..." Takeru got out from his drums and patted Yamato on the back.

"YAMATO?! AS IN THE YAMATO?!" May and Dawn screamed in unison.

"hehehe, I get that a lot... and yeah." Yamato scratched the back of his head and Daisuke and Takeru just sweat dropped. Hikari was just calm about the whole situation since she already know Yamato because Takeru and her were childhood friends and she often visited their place now and then.

"and this is my girlfriend, Saori"

"Nice to meet you guys, especially Beautifly" Saori smiled at May and May also smiled in return.

"Well, this studio's all yours and I better get going now. See 'ya tomorrow guys!"

"don't forget, 5 pm SHARP!" Dawn emphasized the time.

"Okay!"

May ran towards the exit. When she hoped on her motorcycle, she took her mask off and put on her hoodie and drove back home.

"Back in Kanto, the studio was near at our place and the staff never stared at me like that. This relocation is really starting to change my lifestyle drastically." May thought to herself.

She finally got home. She parked her motorcycle next to her car. Then she unlocked the big mansion doors, got upstairs, took a shower, brushed her teeth, and finally went to her bed.

"I hope that things light up tomorrow..." and with a yawn, the girl went fast asleep.

The Next Day...

"Wake up sweetie, it's 10 am" Caroline shook her daughter's shoulders to wake her up.

May shot her eyes open when she heard that it was already 10 'o clock. "10 'O CLOCK? I'M LATE FOR SCHOOL!"

"don't worry honey, I've already called the school and told them that you were not going today"

"huh? Why?

"well, given all these decisions and when Mia told me that you went to sleep late last night, your father and I thought of giving you a break... and you're having a concert next week so you better freshen up a bit." Caroline caressed May

"Thanks mom!" May hugged her mom

"I don't want my little princess collapse while singing in front of worldwide television"

"No worries, that won't happen!" May showed an assuring smile to her mom.

Someone knocked the door and then came in Norman.

"Caroline, we have to go now... you're having your fashion show today isn't it?"

"oh yeah, well Beautifly, duty calls..."

"okay then, bye mom and bye dad" Both adults kissed May on her forehead (one at a time).

"oh wait!,... May, you better dress up 'cause you have a visitor downstairs." Norman told May before they went off.

"Visitor?"

Who could this visitor be?... May got up from bed and took care of her personal hygiene. Shethen dressed herself with a white tank top, a pink leather jacket that's only covering her upper torso, denim skirt, white knee-high socks, and black snickers.

She then went downstairs and towards the living room to know who this mystery visitor is.

And it turned out to be...

The boy was sitting casually on the couch. He was wearing a white t-shirt, black cargo pants, snickers(A/N:I'll leave the colour judgement to you).

"What are you doing here?" May asked the boy in front of her.

The boy smirked at her in response...

-:XOX:-

Anaila: well, sorry for the cliffy

Misty: I thought I TOLD YOU TO-

Ash: wait NOOOO!! (Ash got hit in the head instead of Anaila)

Anaila: (insert puppy dog pout here) you... saved me...

May: hey Misty, maybe she has her reasons for having a cliffy...

Drew: Even so, she could've at described the guy more...

Anaila: I'm really sorry for this!

Misty: I GIVE UP!... you're beginning to lose your shy personality...

Misty: (blushes madly)

Anaila: I'll take that as a yes...

May: oh well... see 'ya next chapter!

Drew: (hair flips)

END OF CHAPTER 3

-:XOX:-

The next chapter will reveal who the visitor is... and may explain why Saori reffered to May as Beautifly, and give some details on how she became a singer...

This story is MAINLY contestshipping and MINOR pokeshipping, ikarishipping, and some digimon couples (I don't know the names of their pairings...)

I'm sorry if there was no Drew moment in there... but I'll surely post a chapter mostly about Drew next time! )

THANK YOU FOR THE REVIEWS!
