I don't own any of the characters in this story.
After Ash's dream turned into nothing again, Misty and Pikachu walked back into the hallway. They were headed toward the 'Control Room' again to see what Ash was doing.
Misty closed the door behind her, and walked to the epic spinny chair next to the keyboard and computer screen. Misty sat down, with Pikachu jumping in her lap, and then she pressed the button that turned on the screen. The screen turned on, and it looked like Ash was running.
"Good. Ash is doing what we told him to. I mean without controlling him of course." Misty said, shyly at Pikachu.
"Pikachu." Pikachu said, happily. Misty pushed the button that allowed sound, and then they continued to watch Ash's pursuit to find the Abra.
Meanwhile, Ash was running deeper into the forest, looking for the lost Abra. "Where could it be?" Ash asked himself aloud. "I'm gonna need some help. Come on out!" Ash said, as he grabbed out two of his Poké balls and released his Pokémon. Totodile and Noctowl came out of their Poké balls, and looked at Ash for instructions.
"Okay. I need you guys to look for an Abra. You know what an Abra looks like, right?" Ash said, as both of his Pokémon nodded their heads. "Okay. Now get going." As he said that, the Pokémon ran in two different directions, and began their search.
Ash ran deeper into the forest, and started to look once more. Ash stopped at a tree, and started to look behind bushes when he heard his name.
"Ash!" Brock yelled, running toward Ash, with Togepi in his arms. "What are you doing? Why weren't you at the campsite?"
"I'm looking for an Abra." Ash said, continuing to look behind bushes and trees.
Brock looked confused, and asked, "Why are you looking for an Abra?"
Realizing that Brock didn't know yet, Ash sighed, and said, "I found out where Misty and Pikachu are."
"Really? Where are they?" Brock said, leaning in closer. Even Togepi looked at Ash with hopeful eyes at the sound of its trainer's name.
Ash smiled, nervously, then he pointed to his head. "They're in here."
Brock looked at him, and said, "In where? Where are they? All you're doing is pointing at your head."
"Exactly. They're in my head." Ash said, then corrected himself. "Well, they're in my mind actually. But it's the same thing."
"I'm serious, Ash. Where are they? No more games." Brock said, starting to sound serious and a little frustrated.
Ash's fists started to clench together, and said, fiercely, "I'm telling the truth!"
"Okay. If you are telling the truth, then prove it." Brock said.
"Fine. I will." Ash said, then he looked up at where his brain was.
Brock scoffed, and said, "This oughta be good."
Ash continued to look at his forehead, and said, "If you guys are in there, I'm giving you the chance to make me say anything or do anything. Just make me do something that'll make Brock believe me."
In the 'Control Room', Misty and Pikachu heard Ash's pleas, and looked at each other. "Okay. How are we going to prove that we're in here?" Misty asked Pikachu.
"Pika pi." Pikachu said, wondering the same thing. Misty sighed, and leaned on the keyboard with her elbow, accidentally pressing a button in the process. Suddenly, a microphone came out, attached to the keyboard.
"What does this one do?" Misty asked. Pikachu shrugged. Then Misty leaned in closer to the microphone, and started to talk into it. "Hello? Hello? Does this thing work?"
Suddenly, Ash felt strange, and he started to talk. "Hello? Hello? Does this thing work?" Ash covered his mouth with his hand, as he realized that that wasn't his voice. It was Misty's! Brock gasped, while Togepi cheered at the sound of Misty's voice.
Misty and Pikachu heard it too, when Ash opened his mouth. "So that's what it does." Misty said, leaning back in the chair. Then she leaned back into the microphone, and started to talk again.
"Brock, are you listening? It's me, Misty." Misty spoke.
On the outside, Ash was saying whatever Misty said. "Pikachu's here too. Say something Pikachu."
Pikachu leaned into the microphone, and said, "Pikachu!"
Ash felt strange again, and spoke, "Pikachu!" His voice changed to Pikachu's.
Brock looked at Ash, and said, "I don't believe this."
Regaining his voice again, Ash replied back with, "I told you I wasn't lying." Then he looked up to his forehead, and smiled. "Thanks you guys."
Misty and Pikachu giggled, and smiled. Then Misty spoke one more time into the microphone, "Now go and find that Abra!"
Ash got the feeling again, and spoke in Misty's voice, "Now go and find that Abra!" Togepi cheered, and jumped in Ash's arms, hearing Misty's voice once again. The little Pokémon hugged Ash, tightly, and didn't let go. Then in Misty's voice, he said, "I love you, Togepi. Be good. And Brock, Ash, you take care of it. If anything happens to Togepi, there will be consequences."
Ash cleared his throat, regaining his voice again, and said, "We will. Don't worry."
But Misty had a look of worry anyways. Pikachu watched as the little microphone went back inside the keyboard. Misty sighed, then continued to watch the screen again.
"We'd better start looking." Brock said.
Ash nodded his head, which inside, made the spinny chair jump a little, scaring Misty and Pikachu. "Right." Brock and Ash started to look around their surroundings.
Ash continued to hold Togepi in his arms. The little Pokémon still thought that he was Misty, but Ash didn't seem to mind. Suddenly, Ash felt something fall on his head. Ash felt around his head, and found an apple core.
"What the-?" Ash began, but was interrupted when another apple core fell on his head. Ash looked up into the tree, and saw the Abra, sitting on a tree branch, eating apples.
Ash smiled, and waved toward Brock. "Hey, Brock, I found it!"
"You did? Where is it?" Brock said, running towards Ash.
Ash pointed up at the tree, and said, "It's up there."
"Oh no. How are we going to get up there?" Brock said, but was then given Togepi. "What are you doing?"
"I'm going to climb up there and talk to it." Ash said, as he turned his hat around, and started to climb. Brock watched, as Ash climbed up to the tree branch the Abra was on.
Ash looked at the Abra, and smiled. "Hi." The Abra looked towards Ash.
Inside, Misty was watching the Abra, who was staring at Ash. Then she noticed something, "The scratch, it's gone." And it was indeed. The Abra's head didn't have any injuries on it. "How did it heal so quickly?" Misty thought about it, and then she found out the answer.
Meanwhile, Ash continued to talk to the Abra. "I'm sorry to disturb you while you're eating. But you see I have a problem that only you can solve." The Abra continued to look at Ash.
"Yesterday, I was sleeping, and you met my two friends, Misty and Pikachu. Perhaps you remember them?" Ash asked. The Abra nodded its head, while Ash smiled, and continued to speak. "Well, my friend, Misty, picked you up, and she's sorry about what she did, but you did something to make her and Pikachu get into my mind. Can you help us?"
The Abra nodded its head. "That's great!" Ash said, looking at the Abra. The Abra stood up on the branch, its hands starting to glow a faint purple. And just as the Abra was about to work its magic, it was grabbed a big, mechanical hand.
"Abra!" The Abra screamed.
Ash looked in shock, and yelled, "Abra! No!" Ash jumped down from the tree and landed on the ground. "Who took Abra?"
"Prepare for trouble!" A feminine voice said.
"Make it double!" A masculine voice said.
"To protect the world from devastation!"
"To unite all people within our nation!"
"To denounce the evil of truth and love!"
"To extend our reach to the stars above!"
"Jesse!" Jesse said, revealing herself.
"James!" James said, revealing himself.
"Team Rocket blasts off at the speed of light!" Jesse said.
"Surrender now, or prepare to fight!" James said. Then Meowth revealed itself.
"Meowth, that's right!" It said.
"Oh no!" Ash said, as he saw Abra in a metal cage. "Let Abra go!"
"Sorry, but we're late for a flight." Jesse said, as all three of them jumped into their balloon and flew off into the sky.
"No! Abra!" Ash yelled, running toward the hot air balloon. Ash jumped to grab the basket, but missed, and fell down to the ground.
"Abra!" Abra yelled in fear, as Team Rocket laughed, evilly.
Brock ran to Ash and kneeled down to him, and asked, "Are you okay?"
"I'm fine. But I failed. I failed Abra, Misty, and Pikachu." Ash said, quietly. Brock gave him a look of sympathy, and patted his back. Togepi looked down, sadly.
Inside Ash's mind, Misty and Pikachu had seen the entire thing. Pikachu had a look of sadness in its eyes, as its ears moved down. Misty looked down, also sad, but then realized something, quickly. "It's not over yet, Ash Ketchum!" Misty pressed the 'Control' key on the keyboard, and smiled.
Ash felt strange again, like a shock up his spine, and looked up at his forehead. "Misty? What are you doing?"
Misty continued to smile, then she typed in a command, and pressed the 'Enter' key.
Suddenly, Ash started to run, forcefully, to the tree. Ash screamed, not knowing what he was doing. Brock watched Ash in shock. Suddenly, Ash jumped into the tree and started to climb, until he got to the highest branch. Ash and Misty both saw the balloon not far away, then Misty typed in another order.
Ash felt his legs starting to move again. This time instead of running, he was jumping from one tree to the next, like a ninja. Ash started to smile, maybe being controlled by someone wasn't so bad after all. Ash continued to jump from tree to tree, until he got close to the balloon.
Misty quickly typed in another command, and pressed 'Enter'. Ash looked up at the balloon, and jumped at it. Ash grabbed onto the basket, and started to climb, until he got inside the hot air balloon. Team Rocket screamed in surprise, with Meowth holding the Abra close.
"I'll take that!" Ash said, proudly, taking Abra away from Meowth. Then he jumped out of the balloon, and landed perfectly on the ground.
Brock ran up to him, and congratulated him. Ash and Brock looked up as they heard Team Rocket talking to them.
"You won't get away with this!" Jesse yelled at the top of her lungs.
"Yeah, we'll be back!" James said.
"But this time, for Pikachu!" Meowth yelled, then all three of them laughed.
Ash set Abra on the ground, and said, "Oh yeah!" Then Ash pointed a finger at Team Rocket's balloon, and ordered, "Pikachu, use Thunderbolt!"
Hearing his master's command, Pikachu used Thunderbolt. It electrocuted Misty, the technology in the room, and Ash's head.
Ash screamed and grabbed his head. Ash fell down to the ground in agony, and screamed, "Headache!" Pikachu immediately stopped, hearing Ash's scream of pain.
Brock sweat dropped, and said, "Maybe I'll blast them off, today."
"Okay." Ash said, before hitting his head on the ground, still in a little bit of pain.
"Go Vulpix!" Brock said, releasing his Pokémon. "Vulpix, use Flamethrower on the balloon." Vulpix did as it was told, and sent the balloon off into the distance.
"Looks like Team Rocket's blasting off again!" Team Rocket screamed.
Brock returned his Vulpix, then kneeled down to Ash, who managed to sit up. "Are you okay, Ash?"
"A little. I forgot that Pikachu's inside, not out." Ash said, laughing a little.
The Abra looked up at Ash, and it used Psychic to break the cage and to free itself. Then it walked toward Ash, jumped into his lap, and put a hand to Ash's head. Ash looked at it, wondering what it was doing. Then the Abra's hands started to glow purple again, and then there was a bright, white light. Misty and Pikachu shielded their eyes from the light, but they were still blinded.
Misty, slowly, opened her eyes, only to see Ash staring down at her. Ash smiled, and giggled. Misty looked around, and saw Pikachu lying beside her. Misty smiled, then looked at her surroundings to see where she was lying.
Misty saw Ash's legs underneath her, and looked up again to see Ash's face above her. Misty screamed a little, realizing that she was lying in Ash's lap, and sat up. Ash and Brock laughed. Then Togepi jumped in Misty's arms, causing her to smile and laugh.
Pikachu opened its eyes, and saw Ash in front of it. Pikachu smiled, and jumped in Ash's arms, giving him a real hug, and not in a dream. "Pika pi!" Pikachu said, happily.
"Pikachu!" Ash said, hugging it. Misty smiled.
"I'm glad you guys are okay." Brock said.
"Me too, and while we were still in Ash's head, I realized why Abra was putting a hand to Ash's head, yesterday, before we were sent into his dream." Misty said, looking at Brock, then Ash.
Ash looked up, curious, and said, "Why?"
"Well, yesterday, I noticed that the Abra had a scratch on its head, and a really bad one. It looked like it wouldn't heal for days. But then, I noticed today that the scratch was gone." Misty said, looking down.
"So what does that mean?" Ash asked, Pikachu listening as well.
Misty turned to Ash, and said, "It means, that that Abra was healing itself with your dreams." Ash gasped. "And when it sent Pikachu and me into your dream, it must've been because it was fueling itself with it, causing us to go in the dream."
Ash looked confused, but said, "Whatever. I'm just glad that there won't be any more controlling over me." The trio, including Pikachu, laughed. Then Ash stood up with Pikachu sitting on his shoulder, and said, "I wonder where that Abra went, though. It left, as soon, as you guys came back."
Misty stood up with Togepi in her arms, and said, "I don't know." Suddenly, Ash's stomach growled. "Hungry, I'm guessing?" Misty asked, looking toward Ash.
Ash scratched behind his head, while sweat dropping, and said, "Yeah. I was so eager to find that Abra, I guess I skipped breakfast."
"Well, then let's go eat." Brock said, walking back to the campsite, leaving Ash and Misty walking slowly together.
Once Brock was out of sight, Ash grabbed Misty's wrist, causing her to turn around. "What is it, Ash?"
"Um, do you promise not to tell anyone about that dream? You know, with you and me kissing?" Ash asked, nervously.
Misty nodded her head, and said, "Of course." Misty started to walk again but was caught short by Ash grabbing her shoulder. "What is it now?"
Ash looked at her, nervously, again. "Well, I was wondering, if we could-"
"Kiss for real?" Misty finished, smiling at Ash.
Ash stared at her with wide eyes. "You're gonna break my arm, now right?" Ash asked, wincing in fear.
Misty shook his head, and said, "No." Ash sighed with relief, then was given a kiss on the lips by Misty. Once Misty parted from him, Ash looked at her, dreamily.
Misty noticed this, and smirked at him. "Don't get any bright ideas, Pokémon trainer." She said, as she flicked his nose. Ash grabbed at his nose, and smiled.
Then, Ash started to run in front of Misty, and yelled, "Bet you can't catch me!"
Misty smiled, and started to run after him, yelling, "I bet you I can!" Then they ran back to the campsite, smiling and laughing at each other.
