Ambezua: Ah, yes... Let's check up on Misty and May.

Chapter 6: On the Road Again...

A few weeks later...

Ash looked over at Misty, who lay motionless on the bed. Ash began to stroke her hair softly. He stood up, and turned to leave.

"Hey, where are you going?" Misty sat up.

"Oh... I thought you were asleep." Ash sat back down on the bed.

"Na, I just pretended to, just to figure out what you do to me when I'm sleep." Misty grinned.

"Huh?"

"I'm just kidding, silly!" Misty gave him a light shove, "you can be so dense sometimes."

"The cute sort of dense, or the annoying type?"

"Both..." Misty crept closer for a kiss.

"HEY, what's up you two!" May burst through the door, her arm in a cast.

"What are you doing here, May?" Misty jumped away from Ash, blushing.

"Oh, I'm just cheaking up on you two. I didn't get off as lucky as you did. I DID get shot in the shoulder. At least TRY to show some concern. I can't even use my right arm!" May put her left arm on her hip.

"I got shot in my lower left side! I nearly died! What do you mean I got off easier?" Misty fumed.

"Uh... yeah... well, you two can get back to whatever it was that you were doing before I came in." May said nervously, and walked out of the room.

"It's good to have May back to normal again." Ash smiled

"Yeah, GioMay was REALLY beginning to tick me off!" Misty grinned.

They both laughed.

"Hey, guess what?" Brock walked into the room, carrying a pokemon egg.

"Whose that for?" Ash pointed at the egg.

"Well, it turns out that since Team Rocket violated the rules of the tournament by attacking us, they ahve decided to award the egg to you two. I hope you enjoy it... Oh, and please try to take it easy, Misty, your wounds still haven't fully healed. Doctor's orders." Brock walked out of the room again, careful to close the door as he left.

Ash looked down at the egg, it's smooth surface gleamed in the light.

"You know what, Ash? It's sort of like our baby."

"Yeah," Ash agreed, without really listening to what Misty said.

"Also, I wouldn't mind having another baby with you either..." Misty's eyes twinkled.

"Yeah, that's fine with me, Mist," Ash was still not listening, he was still fully absorbed in the egg.

"How about right now?" Misty grabbed Ash around the waist from behind.

"Now? Huh? What?" Ash finnally snapped out of his trace.

"Ha, Ha, Ha, never mind... You just act so absent-minded sometimes."

"Oh... But what is it that you wanted to do?"

"Oh, nothing... May has been talking to me about the little "encounter" you two had while she was being influenced by Giovanni. I was just curious..."

"Oh, no! Not you too!" Ash pumped up pff the bed, only half serious.

"Come on, Ash... I was just kidding."

"Oh, good, I hoped so."

"What type of pokemon do you think this is, anyway?" Misty changed the subject back to the pokemon egg.

"I'm not sure..."

"Well, we had better get an early start, if we plan on getting to the next town on scedule."

"Right," Ash placed the egg into his backpack, and ran out into the living room. He picked up Pikachu, placed him on his knee, and took a seat on the coutch.

"Hey, guys, guess what? I have something important to tell you all." an evil smile crept across Misty's face as she sat next to Ash

"What is it?" Brock asked, a bit curious, and took a seat.

Duplica and May rushed in each took a seat as well.

"Ash and I are going to have a baby soon."

Everyone's eyes buldged and jaw dropped, except for Ash and Misty, who were laughing fit to kill.

THE END

Ambezua: LOL, I love happy endings! Don't you? Please R&R! (and yes, I plan on going over the story MULTIPLE times looking for errors. I just haven't had a lot of time today to find them.)
