"Carnavine, I am not a fruit,

no matter what anyone says!"


"Oooh, doesn't it look cute?"



Discovering James

Chapter 5

"I don't...understand..."

"What is there to understand, James? I love you."

He shrugged and crossed his arms. "Yes, I got that, but I just don't understand what you don't understand."

Jessie's face fell. "What don't I understand?"

"That I'm gay!"

She nodded and laughed, waving this off as only a minor inconvenience. "Oh, silly, of course I know that, but you can't be..." and she stopped when she saw the serious look on his face. "...you really are? I always just figured that you were that way because no girl had ever looked twice at you, but, I mean, now that you know that a girl likes you, doesn't that, I dunno, turn you on?"

James shook his head, his lovely blue hair falling into his beautifully, sparkling green eyes. "No, not really."

"Oh, well then...well, how about if I would kiss you?"

"Uh, nope, probably not."

Jessie was now quickly becoming angry. "Oral sex?"


"Actual sex? Oh, come on, you have to be getting a little hot, right?"

James frowned and thought about it for a second. "No, not really." and he laughed. "Wow, just how desperate are you to turn me straight, Jess?"

She sighed and turned away. "I guess not desperate enough."

James stood there for a moment before going up to her and reaching for her shoulder. "C'mon, Jess, don't be like that. I thought that you knew!"

"Yeah, and I thought that you knew about how I felt about you!"

"Well I didn't!"

"And I didn't know that you were gay!"

He frowned. "Well then I guess that we were both off, weren't we?"

"But I think I'm the one whose most hurt."

"You?" James asked, now tearing up again, "At least your boyfriend didn't text message break up with you! Not that any guy would. You're sort of hot."

And she became happy again. "I knew it!"

"Knew what?"

"That you couldn't resist me!"

James shook his head. "No, no, you don't understand and I guess you never will. The only person that I'm in love with is Butch."

Just as the words left his mouth, the green-haired member of Team Rocket said in his annoying voice, "Did I just hear someone say my name?"

James let out an excited squeal as he ran up to him and jumped into his open arms. Jessie just stood there, her arms limp at her sides, and her face flaming. "James..."

But he wasn't listening anymore. He kissed Butch on the cheek and squealed, "I thought that I'd never see you again!"

Butch frowned down at him and raised a brow. "Jeez, I love you too, Jamie, but we've only been going out for three weeks. Think you could cool it a little?"

James just shrugged and embraced him. "But I thought that you broke up with me!"

"Of course I didn't! Why would I have done that?"

"The text message..." James said. "You text message broke up with me, remember?"

Butch laughed and shook his head. "No I didn't! That was an accident!"


"Yeah, Cassidy had to use the cell to call the Boss, so she took it from me and sent the message before I was done. What I had wanted to say was , 'I am breaking up inside because we're not even engaged yet'."

Jessie let out a sigh of exasperation and yelled at him, "So you mean that James thought that you were breaking up with him because the message said, 'I am breaking up'? That's the stupidest-"

James cut her off and asked, "So that means that you really do love me?"

"How could anyone not?"

Jessie walked right up to where Butch was still holding James in his arms, and glared at him. "I could. I hate that little blue-haired idiot!" as if to prove this she slapped James in the face, making him let out a shrill howl of pain. She didn't care, though.

Jessie just continued to walk off in the direction that Meowth and the twerps had gone. It looked like everyone's feelings about love was fickle at this point. Jessie just shook her head and felt her heart ripping in half as she heard James yell behind her, "For God's sakes, it's not blue, it's lavender!"

First off all of the quotes mentioned in this fanfic were real—James actually said them somewhere in the Pokemon series. I didn't make any of them up. So...yeah. *cough, cough* he's straight alright. Whatever you say.

James = Love
