So we all have a long weekend coming up and everyone was debating about what we should do. All of us wanted to do something with the seniors that were available that weekend. So Misty, May, Emma, and I all meet up in our room to discuss ideas.
"Okay so far we know that, Paul, Reggie, Davy, Virgil, Ash, Misty, Drew, Gary, May, Falkner, Aaron, Brock, Jasmine, Harley, Solidad, Tracey, you, and me are all free this weekend." Emma stated.
"Do we have to invite Harley? He gives me the creeps." May complained.
"Yes May, it's the nice thing to do." Misty answered. I do have to admit it though. He scares me.
"Okay, so does anyone have any ideas about what we could do?" I question.
"Let's go gambling!" Misty throws out.
"I think we're a little too young to gamble." Emma argues.
"Not the seniors!" Misty shot back. Oh boy…
"I got it!" I say. Emma, May, and Misty all stare at me.
"Well, out with it!" May yells.
"Let's go to the beach!" I say. Everyone stares at me.
"Dawn, that's an awesome idea!" Emma yells.
"Alright, so this weekend, we are all gonna meet up here and head to the beach!" Misty finalized.
"Dawn." I look behind me and I see Principal Cynthia.
"Yes?" I question.
"Your mother is on the phone. She wanted to talk to you." Cynthia informs me.
"Alright. I'll be right there." I reply. Cynthia walks out of the room.
"I wanna meet your mom!" Misty yells. I think she just broke mine and the others eardrums.
"Same here." May added.
"I would also like to meet your mother." Emma stated.
"Alright. I think my mother would be happy that I've met some awesome friends." We all walk down to the phones and I see Cynthia standing at one of the phones with my mother on the screen.
We all reach the phones and I see her. Dawn's mother. She's in her human state right now but she is still as beautiful as people say she is.
"Hi mom." Dawn greets her mother.
"Hello Dawn. Are these your friends?" Cresselia questions.
"Yep, this is May, that's Misty, and this is Emma." Dawn introduces.
"I'm guessing that you girls are all the daughters of Pokémon?" Cresselia guessed.
"Yes. I am the daughter of Gyarados." Misty explains.
"My dad is Blazekin." May adds in.
"Oh I remember Blazekin. He's such a sweetheart. He was always the jock back in High school." Cresselia explained.
"Yep, that's my dad for you." May put her hand behind her head.
"You miss Emma, need no introduction. I honored to finally meet you." Dawn's mother bows to me and I bow back.
"It's a great honor Cresselia." I reply.
"I have a question for you Miss Emma." Cresselia states.
"What is it?" I reply.
"How often do you see your father?" I was shocked that she asked me that. I was speechless for a little bit. "I'm sorry, I didn't mean to offend you."
"No you didn't. I get to see my father about twice, maybe 3 times a year in person now. When I was little, he never left my side." I reply.
"I see." Cresselia replies. "Anyways, Dawn I was wonder how school has been going for you." Dawn and her mother continued to talk with Misty and May butting in every once in a while. I didn't want to feel like I was intruding so I decided to leave. I start to walk back to my room. I understand why my father is gone all the time, but he could call me more often. The only times I see him for my birthday and Christmas. I mean he'll drop by at school to check up on things but, I don't even get to see him then. What? I feel tears run down my face. Why am I crying? Do I wish I could see my father more?
We were all talking to Dawn's mother and I noticed that Emma was gone. I look around a little to see if she was just in the lobby or something. I don't see her anywhere.
"Hey Misty, are you alright?" May questions me.
"Yeah. But I think Emma left." I reply.
"So mom, when's your next meeting?" I overhear Dawn still talking to her mother.
"What meeting?" I question.
"Oh that's right, you guys wouldn't know about it. You see once a year, every legendary Pokémon hold a meeting to discuss laws, how the regions are cooperating with each other, and the notorious groups that they try to develop strategies to stop them." Dawn explained.
"Oh wow. That's sounds cool." May marveled.
"Cool , yes, fun, not so much. It's basically like a family or high school reunion." Cresselia explained.
"Then why wouldn't it be fun?" I question.
"Because all they ever talk about is work." Dawn explains.
"No offence, but that does sound boring." I agree.
"None taken. I was also wondering if you could come to the meeting this weekend." Cresselia questions.
"Aww, mom do I have to? We just made plans for this weekend!" Dawn complained.
"Aww, mom do I have to? We just made plans for this weekend!" I complained.
"I know that you still have a good long life as a teenager left, but you'll soon have to take over my position. The council and I have decided that all of their children must attend as well." Mom explained.
"So basically I don't have a choice?" I question.
"Pretty much! I'll see you this weekend!" My mom hangs up the phone and the screen goes black.
"Geez! I wish my mom would tell me stuff like this in advance! Well, there goes my weekend." I pout.
"Hey, I bet it won't be as bad as you think." May tries to cheer me up.
"Well at least Emma and Paul are going with you." Misty adds in.
"I guess you're right. I should probably go tell them." I say.
"Wait, where is this meeting held?" May questions.
"This year it's at Full Moon Island a.k.a my house." I reply.
I'm back in my dorm room sitting on my bed. I feel my phone vibrate. I take my phone out of my pocket. I got a text message from dad. He calls and texts me whenever he can but I wish I could see him more. I open the text and read it out loud to myself.
"Emma, this weekend is the semi-annual Legendary council meeting, I would like to come. It is going to be held on Full Moon Island this time. The council decided that all of the offspring mush attend this meeting to get a feel for what we do and what the future generation is expecting. I'll see you soon. Dad." I guess I have no choice but going. I hear footsteps coming down the hall.
"Hey, Emma are you alright?" Gary states as he walks in my room.
"What are you doing here?" I snap.
"I came to propose." Gary said sarcastically. He walked up to my bed and sat next to me. "What's up?"
"I have a stupid council meeting my dad wants me to go to this weekend. I'm pretty sure that Dawn and Paul are gonna have to go too." I explain.
"Well at least you get to see your dad." Gary stated.
"Yeah, I guess." I reply. I pick my legs up off the ground and I rest my head on my knees.
"Remember when we were kids. You always had to stay at my house 'cause of your old man." Gary stated.
"Yeah, why?" I question.
"Well, you always had a great time at my place. And if anything happened to you, you told me. I thought of you like my little sister. Even though our parents are in no way related." Gary explained. He was right though. I was often left out of games because of who I am. The other kids thought it was unfair for the team that didn't have me on it. But Gary always played with me, no matter what we played. He is like a big brother to me. I lean next to his shoulder and he wraps his arm around my shoulder.
"Thanks Gary." I reply.
"If you ever need someone to talk to, I'll listen." Gary assured.
Dawn, Misty, and I heard the whole thing. We were all fan girling in the lobby.
"Okay, we need to get a plan to hook those two up!" I yell.
"May, shut up! We don't want to be heard!" Misty states. She's right. Me and my big mouth.
"Okay, but we have to do it after the legendary council meeting." Dawn states.
"Do what after the Legendary Council Meeting?" I hear a deep voice say.
"Paul! What are you doing here?" Dawn states.
May, Misty, and I were just discussing our plans to hook up Emma with Gary when we were so rudely interrupted by Paul.
"Like I said before, do what after the Legendary Council Meeting?"
"N-nothing! Now why don't you scurry off." I lie.
"I can't do that because I need to talk to you about something extremely important." Paul stated.
"Okay, what is it?" I ask.
"I need to ask you alone." Paul said.
"Dawn it's alright. We'll discuss our plans when you get back." Misty stated. I get up out of my seat and I follow Paul to another lobby.
"What is it?" I question.
"Did you know about this?" Paul hands be a piece of paper. It says "Lunar Ball" in big letter.
"I don't get what the big deal is about this, it's just a dance." I say.
"Forget it." Paul rips the flyer out of my hands and a piece of it is ripped off. I look at the small piece of paper in my hands. Oh God. No, no, no, no, no! I am not going to! I am so gonna kill mom when I see her! I stomp off angrily to my dorm room.
The next day was Saturday and Paul, Emma, and I are all at the front of the school saying goodbye to our friends for the short time we will be gone.
"Be safe you three." Cilan states.
"We will." Emma states.
"Hey Dawn. Say hi to your mom for me, will ya?" Aaron requests.
"Not a problem." I reply.
"We have to get going if we want to get to Full Moon Island by night fall." Paul states.
"Right." Emma agrees. I surround myself in a bright white light and I transform into a Cresselia. Paul surrounds himself in a dark black light and he turns himself into a Darkrai. I look back at Emma and she didn't transform.
"Emma, what's wrong?" I question her.
"I-I can't transform, at least, not yet." Emma explains. Paul looks at her.
"Then you can ride on my back." I offer.
"Thanks!" Emma climbs onto my back and we head to Full Moon Island.
Paul, Dawn, and I are heading to Full Moon Island to take part in the annual Legendary Council Meeting. I look down at my neck and I see the necklace that Gary gave me yesterday. I was leaning on his shoulder.
I was leaning on Gary's shoulder after what he just told me.
"Thanks Gary." I reply.
"Oh wait. I have something I wanted to give you." Gary dug through his pocket and pulled out a rather large box.
"What is it?" I question Gary.
"Open it and find out." I slowly open the box and I see a necklace with a locket at the bottom. I open the locket and I see a picture of me and Gary from when me and Gary were kids.
"Your hair hasn't changed after 10 years." I give a small laugh. "I love it." I wrap my arms around Gary.
"Almost as much as you love me?" Gary teases.
"You wish!" I yell back.
I open the locket and I look at the picture. Maybe I was wrong. Do I actually have feelings for Gary? I look down at the school and I can barely see Gary. He winks and gives me a thumbs up. I do the same back. But I know that I'll see him again, I mean, how long can a council meeting be right?
