Celebi frowned sadly her blue eyes sorrowful as she gazed down at the small form cradled in her arms. Amber eyes gazed curiously back at her, his head tilted to the side cutely.
"Oh little one," She whispered "You will have a hard life ahead of you," She turned to face the man next to her. "Aaron are you sure you wish to do this to your child?" Her eyes hard she questioned the aura guardian before her. A pained look flashed across the handsome face before he nodded.
"It's the only way, Without me here to protect him the hunters could and would kill him easily. I...he's my son...he's the only thing I have left. I would do anything to protect him, even if it means sending him away." Celebi nodded hearing the resolve in Aaron's voice.
"Very well then. Though know this even if you survive I will not bring him back to this time. Usually I would not even do this for anyone but, we Pokemon and I myself owe you a great deal. Consider my debt to you fulfilled Aaron." The man nodded once again understanding and sorrow filling his features. "I understand Lady Celebi." The fairy like Pokemon nodded sharply.
"What is his name?"
"Samuel, Samuel Oak...Come to me...I am in the forest. Come to me Samuel." Pokemon Professor Samuel Oak jerked upright with a startled gasp.
"Celebi you have returned." He whispered hurrying to dress, he rushed down the stairs he did his best to be quiet not wanting to wake his grandson who slept in the room across the hall. Opening the front door he didn't pause as he hurried into the forest surrounding pallet town.
"Celebi!" He cried joyfully seeing the small fairy like Pokemon appear before him, A bundle cradled carefully in her arms.
"Samuel." She greeted her voice somber. "I have a task for you, my friend."
"Anything." He whispered vehemently "I would do anything for you, Celebi." The Legendary smiled sadly.
"I know you would."
"So what do you need from me?" Celebi slowly floated forward until there was only a foot or so between them.
"This." And with careful use of her Physic powers she drew back the blanket showing him the face of a sleeping child.
"Who..." He breathed out shocked beyond belief.
"He is the son of a very dear friend whom I owed a favor...He is no longer in this world but before he went he asked me to take his son away from his enemies. I agreed, Samuel I need you to find someone to care for him." He gaped at the Pokemon in shock
"I will do it. But why me, Celebi?" She smiled at him thoughtfully for a moment before answering "Because Samuel, I trust you," She murmured handing him the child "Now then his name is Ashura, you can tell no one of my involvement, Remember that, Samuel." And as she spoke her last words to him Celebi disappeared into the woods.
Ring. Ring. Ring.
"Hello Delia Ketchum speaking."
"Delia it's Samuel Oak I have heard about your unfortunate circumstances about having a child, and I may have an Alternative."
