I do not own Pokemon.

It's through. I can't believe it. It's over; it's nothing but a memory, like I will soon be too.

I've been waiting for this moment ever since I knew. I was scared but… I knew I had to be brave.

I see you up ahead; you're walking so confidently, with a fast pounding heart in your chest. It's full of fear, excitement and thrill, everything that exhilarates the mind.

Mine just hurts.

My limbs begin to ache physically, my eyes grow heavy. Every breath is painful; every step I take brings me closer to the end.

But further away from you.

You turn and call my name;

"Come on!"

I try harder but the pressure is increasing. Is this my weakening body, or my heavy heart weighing me down?

You run back to me with a distraught look in your innocent eyes.

"Are you okay?" I hear through my tear-sodden mind. I say nothing, but I feel a tiny droplet soak into my cheek.

You call my name again with more concern than before and I look up into your eyes. You don't deserve this and… I don't deserve to be your friend.

I wish I could've told you this before. I'm sorry; I didn't want to hurt you.

This is it, for me. You go out there, and start again, because you can.

"Wh-what do you mean?" I can see your eyes start to water before me. Stop, please, stop. You're hurting me now.

The course of history has changed. I can no longer exist. I don't fit into this world.

I stand in agony and despair as I watch my whole life begin to fade. Although I feel such sorrow, I feel like I'm bursting with pride. I'm so proud to have you as a friend. You were with me through thick and thin.

My body suddenly feels like it's glowing; glowing with memories and bitter sweet thoughts. I can see a brilliant light… The light at the end of the tunnel? I'm so happy and yet… so sad…

This is the end… But before I go, I have one last wish.

Go back. Go back, holding me in your heart; I will always be behind you. Go back and tell everyone what happened here, so that… so that… nothing like this will ever happen again… I'll never forget you.

My friend.
