Chapter 10

Roxie's POV

I swear to Arceuus I can't keep up this charade. But I had to, for Marlon's sake. Onyxwing, Icetooth and I looked over the cliff. Landoruswas laughing maniacally, with a huge smirk on his stupid face, teeth bared as well. I noticed blood floating towards the surface...

I wanted to scream, but I this would give my position away.

"So, you thought you would get away with killing me… hmm?" a familiar voice said. I turned around. Perched upon his trusty Unfezant, Wind, was Marlon. He was wielding an eighteenth-century looking gun. Where he found it, who knows, but it was good for him to find it! "Leave me alone, or I will shoot you." He cocked the gun. Landorus stopped laughing and started backing off. "You promise?"

"I-I promise…" the feline chuffed. "Come on Thundurus, Tornadus, let's go."

"Thank you…" Marlon and I said in unison. The three beasts nodded and floated back up into the clouds, disappearing. The rain stopped and the clouds dissipated. A loud sound echoed in the distance, but it wasn't thunder. It sounded like an ocean liner.

"Marlon… your arm."

"Yeah, I know," he said as Wind landed on the ground. He jumped off her.

"Where did you find that gun?" I asked. "It looks eighteenth century."

"It was weird… I saw a strange light down below, so I followed it… and I found a treasure chest full of valuable things, including this. I have no idea if it works or not…"

"Probably not, since it's been in the ocean for so long." I looked at it. "Looks like something Lenora or Hawes can restore. Oh yeah, I thought I heard an ocean liner's foghorn."

"I thought I was the only one. Should we follow it?"

"I think we should!" I agreed. I looked at my tattered shirt. "Oh, but my shirt… I'm showing sooo much." I blushed.

His face turned red a little. "Y-you're fine."

"Okay. Say, where are Icetooth and Onyxwing? They seemed to have disappeared…" I wondered. I looked around and saw that they were hiding behind a tree. "Guys… no need to be scared." The two scared Pokémon walked around the tree and up to me. "It's all right. This item, called a gun, no one can shoot it because it's been in the ocean for so long." They looked at it for the longest time.

"Listen…" Onyxwing squawked. "We want to come with you guys."

"Yes. I would like to see the world beyond this area." Icetooth nodded. "What Marlon described in a short period of time sounds amazing…"

"Yes. I'm curious about humans." The Archeops tried to open his beak to form a smile, but wasn't successful. It looked stupid, but funny at the same time, and maybe a little bit cute, too.

"You know, you'll be sent to René's lab…" I pondered.

"R-René? That nice human I met several seasons ago?" His eyes lit up. "Yes! I don't care!" he squawked. He wrapped his wings around me, kind of like a hug.

"Okay then." I grabbed a pokeball from my belt. I enlarged it, and he immediately tapped it with his beak. He was immediately sucked into the pokeball. It wobbled and clicked. "All right!" The pokeball immediately dissipated.

"Congrats, Roxie!" Marlon clapped. "I guess it's my turn, then?" He grabbed a pokeball from his belt and enlarged it. He set it on the ground. Icetooth walked up and tapped it with his paw. He dematerialised into the capsule. It wobbled and clicked, and dissipated.

"Congrats, Marlon!" I grinned. I walked up to him and hugged him tightly. He wrapped his huge arms around me and sucked the life out of me. "Okay Marlon," I gagged. "You can stop hugging me…"

"Oh. Sorry, Roxie." He let go of me. I was finally able to breathe properly. "Come on, let us hurry and catch that ship before it leaves!"

"Right!" he said and nodded.

Third person's POV

Professor Juniper, or René as she known by people she trusts, was sitting at her desk doing paperwork when she heard a noise. She turned around and noticed to pokeballs had arrived.

"Well, I'll be. They're from Marlon and Roxie." She walked over and released the two Pokémon that were in the pokeballs.

The two Pokémon materialised and looked around. The Archeops that she knew tackled her to the ground and play bit her. "René!" the bird said happily.

"O-Onyxwing?" she questioned, blinking.

"Yes! It's me, René!" he squawked. "How I've missed you!"

"I-I've missed you too." She nodded and stood back up. "Who's your friend?"

"I'm Icetooth. You must be René, no? Onyxwing wouldn't stop chattering about you and whatever the other person's name is…" The polar bear bowed.

"I see. I think you're thinking of my friend, Émile."

"So that's his name." Icetooth looked around.

"Would you like to come outside?"

"Okay," the two Pokémon agreed.

Roxie's POV

"Weeee!" Marlon and I were sitting on his Mantine, Tyne. "This is very exhilarating!"

"I know!" he agreed. He looked at my face. I felt sick. "Are you okay?"

"I don't feel that great…"

"Do what I told you to do, don't look down, and look out towards the horizon." I nodded and did what he said. I breathed in and out slowly and looked out towards the horizon. Some Alomomolas seemed to enjoy our company, splashing in and out of the water.

The ocean liner was just within our reach. "Now, fly up!" Tyne ascended into the air and landed on the boat, exhausted.

Random people started looking at us. "Is that? No way! It's Marlon! It's Roxie! I want their autographs!" various people said.

That's when security noticed us. "Oi!" someone from security shouted. "What the hell are you doing on this boat? You are not authorised to be on this boat!"

"Sir…" I walked up slowly and knelt down. "We've been stranded for about four days and we could use a proper bath, food, clothes and water. Just look at my shirt, sir! My b-bra is showing!" I blushed. "Surely people have been looking for us! Don't you know who I am?" I glared at the officer.

"Um no… I don't believe anyone's been looking for you, at least not that I know of. No one has reported you guys missing."

"What?" I snapped. "How the hell!" I clenched my fists. Of course, I wasn't telling the truth. I had told Billy Jo and Nicky that we were going to be away for a while.

"And could we have some pills for seasickness?" Marlon shot back at the officer. "And maybe a bed? If you don't compromise, I'll shoot you." He cocked the gun.

"Y-yes sir!" the officer responded instantly.

"The name's Marlon, the gym leader of Humilau City."

"And the name's Roxie, the gym leader of Virbank." I crossed my arms and tapped my foot.

The officer nodded and ran off, probably to go tell the captain.

"Damn Marlon; that was a smart move." I stared out the window. "Are you sure you don't want some of this?"

"No… I don't like alcohol…" he sighed. "It makes me throw up."

"Well, that's a damn good reason not to drink it. You don't like doing anything crazy, other than jumping off that cliff; do you?" I asked.

"Not really, no… I don't like drugs and stuff like that."

"Hmm, all right, more for me…" I poured some more wine into my glass. I accidentally read the label aloud, "Bordeaux, 1995."

"Don't drink too much of that," he said with concern. His voice was smoother than molasses. I shuddered. His voice turned me on.

"All right, Marlon."

I approached him and stared at him. "W-what?" he asked. "Why are you looking at me like that?"

"Your voice turns me on."

"Well, that's good to know…"

I continued to stare at him. "You know you want to."

"I think you've had too much to drink," he said worryingly. "I don't trust anyone who's had too much alcohol…"

"Shirt off, now," I demanded. He gasped and fell off the bed.

"Ow…" he moaned. I jumped on top of him. "Roxie, get off!" he yipped.

"I'm afraid not." I put my mouth on his lips and kissed him. He squirmed but he seemed to be easing a bit. "Quit squirming."

"Ro –"

"Shut up and kiss me." I stuck my tongue down his mouth, so that he would shut up. He eventually relaxed and started to kiss me. I stopped kissing him when I realised he was having an asthma attack. Even if I was drunk, I knew exactly what was happening.

I ran over to the desk where we put all of our stuff. I grabbed his inhaler and handed it to him. He put it in his mouth and pushed the button. He relaxed.

"I'm sorry that keeps happening…" he really sounded apologetic.

"No… I-I don't care," I slurred slightly. "D-do you want to go further?"

"Not really… b-but I do love you." He blushed. "Give me some of that wine."

"Okay." I walked over to the bottle and handed it to him. He took a swig from it.

"This is really gooood." He took another swig from it. "Okay… l-let's do it." He stared at me. His face flushed from the alcohol. I nodded and smirked.

I finally get into his damn pants.

"Ugh…" I woke up the next day, with a headache. "Bad hangover…"

"Urgh… my head," Marlon woke up, grunting. "What the hell happened last night?"

"I-I don't know. I don't remember." I noticed that we weren't wearing any clothes, but luckily, there were covers over us. "D-did we do it?"

"I-I guess so." His face turned paler than the full moon.

"Umm… well, that's pretend that didn't happen."

"Okay… t-that's a good idea." He nodded.

A/N: lol well, it's about time, no?
