[A/N]: This is an a request for a friend on tumblr. And there's more need of love for newrivalshipping, okay.
—- Wally had always held admiration for his fellow trainer May, who was the daughter of the Petalburg's Gym Leader.
Although, he never specified his relationship with her, he didn't see it as a rivalry of some sort, probably something as her as his mentor, although that is really embarrassing to say…
Even after the girl became Champion, he still had high regard towards her with respect, yet unbeknownst of his own feelings had gradually changed from respect or admiration.
It was something that he wouldn't dare think of due to his own sake of naivety and wonderment on how to confront this strange feelings that overtook him when he sees May.
Turning ridiculously scarlet in the face, with his heart pounding in excitement, Wally wanted to hide himself when ever he began to feel like this around his old friend, wanting nothing to ruin this innocent friendship of theirs, fearing it may plague the old ties they made to one another.
Despite him trying to hide these feelings, it became painfully obvious that he grew to love his old friend. Yet, what could he do? It's too overwhelming for him, just to go to her and … … tell her.
He took his chances anyway. And talked to her on one of their times together—- with his shy voice stuttering, face turning pink and confessing.
"I-I LIKE YOU, MAY!"
