Summary: May after getting into a fight with Drew runs off and gets kidnapped. Five years later Drew, Solidad, and Harley run into May but she doesn't know who they are. Will she remember? And I hear wedding Bells. Contestshipping and other shipping.
AN: Hey this is my first contestshipping story. I'm debating whether to put May with Gary or Brendan. Please tell me! Also all pictures for this story are on its link to polyvore. Please read and review!
"Skitty use blizzard!" said May. She watched apprehensively as her Skitty unleashed it's attack. Closing her eyes she let out a sigh, trying to block the on coming migraine.
Two ribbons. Two more ribbons and she would be eligible to enter the Grande Festival.
"You're not seriously even considering using that move in the contest May are you? It's pathetic," said a voice behind her. May opened her eyes, groaning internally. Drew. Her rival, sometimes friend, and her secret crush.
May reluctantly turned to face him, waiting for the on coming shower of insults. Behind him stood Solidad and Harley, her other rivals.
Somehow the four of them ended up traveling together. Except for May, all of them had all five ribbon's to enter the Grande festival.
"Drew's right May. People from other contests you've entered will be there and will recognize that move. It's becoming your trademark move with skitty," said Solidad. May liked Solidad, she really did. It was like having an older sister but she could be a real pain. Like now.
"I know I'm just practicing," May said with a tight smile.
'Why can't they trust me to just train on my own?' she thought internally rolling her eyes.
"Hard to believe considering how much you spend your time eating and sleeping. Considering how badly you've been performing," said Drew flicking his hair.
She winced. That stung. May had been doing terribly in contests lately but it hurt hearing other people tell her so.
'He doesn't have to emphasize it,' she thought feeling the first slight prickle of tears, but she held them back.
"Yeah May sweetie you need to kick it up," said Harley punching his fist in the air.
"I know," May said controlling her temper, closing her eyes.
'Can't they leave me alone?' she thought desperately.
"Harley is right May. If your Pokémon see you failing they'll lose confidence to," said Drew as having to explain something t.
"I know Drew," May said gritting her teeth. Couldn't they leave her alone? They told her this everyday!
Solidad seeing she was stressed tried to calm her down. " May it's not that your bad it's just that you need to focus more," she said gently.
"Yeah try to concentrate more on your Pokémon, not your stomach. You know you're going to get fat it you keep eating like that," added Harley, smirking.
"I know you guys you don't have to-," started May but drew cut her.
"No May you clearly don't!" he lashed out taking a step foreword as she took one back wincing at the tone of his voice. Not noticing he went on.
"How do you expect to get anywhere if you don't train? You've barely made it into semi finals in the contests, your appeal scores have plummeted, and need I go on? You'll never make it if you keep up like this," Drew finished, his arms crossed looking serious.
That was when May lost it. Her eyes shot open angrily, the tears finally spilling out, running like rain down her face.
" I KNOW! I know how badly I've been doing so you don't have to keep telling me I suck because I know that!" she yelled shocking them all. Her expression darkened as she turned her gaze to the ground, tears still running down her face, before spinning on her heel and running into the forest. Skitty
Solidad felt guilty. She took a step forward as if to follow but Drew stopped her shaking his head.
"She'll be fine Solidad. Now we'd better go in. It's supposed to rain later," he said calmly, as Solidad nodded and followed Harley back in.
Drew walked behind them but stopped looking over his shoulder at the place May had run through feeling guilty as well. He then shook his head. He was letting his feelings get in the way of what he knew would make May a better coordinator. He followed Harley and Solidad back in.
Back to May
May ran through the woods tripping as the tears blurred her vision. Why? Why couldn't they see she was trying her best? And Drew. At the thought of him made wince, once again stumbling on to the ground.
Staring down at the ground, she watched as her tears fell like rain onto the cold earth beneath her. Why did she have to love such a jerk? Staggering up she continued running, not caring where she ended up.
At last she burst through the woods and found herself on the cliffs near the sea. The sun was setting against the sky, which was colored with different shades of red and orange.
May sat down pulling her knee's up against her chest. She took off her bandana and used it to blow her nose.
Skitty walked up to her looking concerned. It rubbed its head against her leg. May looked down at it smiling. She picked skitty up and held skitty close to her.
" I'm sorry for running off like that skitty. I just needed some space," she said stroking skitty. Skitty nudged her belt where her other pokemon were.
May smiled at skitty and stood up. "Okay come on out everyone!" May said releasing all her pokemon. Immediately skitty ran over to them.
'Drew and those guys were getting on Mays case again' she said and knew that if their master was upset then they were to.
'I don't know why he goes so hard on her. Roselia says he's in love with May' sighed Beautifly as everyone turned to look at her.
'When did she tell you this?' demanded Glaceon.
'When May lost her last competition. Roselia says she thinks Drew really cares for May as in more than a friend' responded Beautifly. Blaziken crossed his arms, huffing.
'I still don't like grass head' he muttered. Everyone then glanced over at their master. Her eye's were transfixed on the horizon. The warm breeze caressed her cheeks, tempting her to let her hair out of its pig-tailed captivity.
She pulled her hair out of its usual do and let it down, the breeze tossing it playfully. Mays hair like Misty's was surprisingly long, falling a few inches past her midback. When she looked down at her hands she noticed how scratched her gloves were from when she tripped. She took them off, setting them next to her bandana.
Skitty, she suddenly noticed, was tense and on guard, looking ready to attack. Her other pokemon she noticed were as well. It was then she heard footsteps behind her. She sighed thinking it to be Drew or Solidad.
"Drew or Solidad if that's you I really don't want to tal-…" May was cut off as she felt pain shoot through her body. Her eyes were still fixed on the horizon, before she fell and her world turned black.
The next day
Drew awoke to the sound of pounding on the door. He looked at the clock and groaned out loud. The clock showed it was only six am. It was probably May. Sighing, he got up walking towards the door grumpily, as Harley grumbled about getting his beauty sleep.
He opened the door saying, " May what the-…Solidad what's wrong?" Solidad stood in the doorway shaking, tears streaming down her unusually pale face.
" May." She whimpered quietly staggering into the room. Drew frowned. What did May do now?
" What did May do Solidad?" he asked calmly, grasping her shoulders. By now Harley was sitting up in bed.
Solidad looked up at him her eyes red from crying. "Nurse joy says May didn't come in at all last night. Her things were found on the cliffs. Drew Mays has been kidnapped."
