So guys, I'm not sure if it is the best idea to start a new story, but I was so inspired! I couldn't even finish the new chapter for TLC :C Anyway, this is a story inspired by "I'm Stuck in a House Full of Girls" by hellfire15. It is a story about a Lucario that is sent away to work for a family friend, while attending a prestigious university. Now sit back, relax, and enjoy C: Oh, by the way, they are all pokemorphs C:
(Insert Review Responses Here)
It was a nice winter day in Unova, the wind ever so graciously blowing through the city. In the distance a train could be seen, carrying a specific Lucario. This Lucario however, was in for a big surprise when he arrived at his destination.
I sighed, looking at the forest that was slowly giving way to a city landscape. I still couldn't understand the reason why mother insisted me on leaving Sinnoh. I could only try to figure it out by replaying the conversation over and over in my head.
"Lawrence, what on earth do you mean you don't want to leave?"
"Mother, please explain why I was even considered for going there? I'm fairly certain that there are much better candidates than I." I protested. My mother just sighed, and looked me straight in the eyes.
"Lawrence sweetie, you know that your father and I only want the best for you, right?"
"Great! So here's your ticket, the address, map, and your bags are in the cab outside!" She said, handing me said items.
"W-Wait! I don't get a say in this?!" I yelled, already being pushed out the door by my excited mother.
"Nope. By dear, and remember to have fun and get good grades. Say hi to Elisa for me when you get there!" She said, dabbing at her eye with a handkerchief.
'Might as well gather my things…' I thought, as I soon spotted the train station.
I gathered my things, and looked at the map. A stray breeze however, blew it out of my hands.
I cursed and began to follow after my map as it flew carelessly in the wind. I sighed in relief, when it landed on the ground. As soon as I reached for it however, another breeze swept it away. Luckily for me, I didn't follow after it. The map flew right into a speeding train, thundering over the tracks.
I groaned, knowing that without the map I'd be screwed. I brought my bag with me and began to think of what I would do. 'Without a map, I'm screwed. At least I still have the address…'
I was still pondering over my current predicament, and happened to notice a certain group of people holding a sign.
After deciding I should ask someone for assistance and directions, I approached said group, and politely coughed.
The group of people turned, and out eight of them, I recognized one.
"Miss Elisa?" I asked, shocked to see my mother's best friend, and colleague.
"Oh my, if it isn't Lawrence! Look at how big you've gotten." The Eevee smiled, giving me a quick greeting.
"It's great to see you ma'am, and by good luck too." I smiled back. I noticed the other seven members of the group staring at me, with friendly smiles.
"Oh, where are my manners, Lawrence, meet my daughters. They are most certainly excited to meet you." Elisa said, quickly dragging me over to meet them.
An Espeon approached, extending her hand. "My name is Ellie, it's a pleasure to meet you."
"Pleasure for me as well." I replied, giving her a quick handshake.
Next, a Leafeon came forward. "I'm Lisa."
"Nice to meet you."
A Flareon and Vaporeon approached me next. " I'm Flare, and this is Veronica!"
"Pleasure to meet the both of you."
Lastly, a Glaceon, Umbreon, and Jolteon stepped forward. "I'm Grace." "I'm Ujaya." "And I'm Julie."
"Nice to meet all of you." I smiled. 'They seem nice…Maybe leaving was a good idea after all.
"Come, we should leave and return home. Lawrence, you still need to register for this year, and become aquatinted with our home." Elisa said, looking at her watch. I nodded, and bent over, picking up all of my luggage.
I looked up, seeing the girls staring at me. "Is something wrong?" I asked, confused at their stares.
"How are you that strong?" Lisa asked, her mouth going agape. I raised an eyebrow.
"What do you mean?"
"You're carrying four bags at once, and they don't seem to be very light." Ujaya said, equally surprised.
"I do a lot of chores from where I come from." I replied, finally understanding their question. "It keeps me in shape."
Elisa lead us outside where a limo was parked, waiting for us. I placed my bags in the trunk, and we all climbed inside.
Lisa turned her head, looking at me. I turned to look at her, but she quickly looked away.
"So Lawrence, how is Lucy?" Elisa asked, a humorous glint in her eyes.
"She is fine, and gives you her regards." I replied, before I remembered a question.
"What is my job exactly?" I asked.
"Oh, it's nothing you can't handle. You will just be our butler until graduation." She replied.
"Butler?" the girls said in unison. They began to giggle, and I sweat dropped.
"Guess it won't be to different than home then."
We started to pass the time by getting to know each other. The sisters were all my age, which is pretty cool.
Soon enough however, we arrived at the front of a very impressive mansion. I could only look in awe at the sight. The girls giggled at me. I blushed, and grabbed my things. We then ascended the steps and walked through the two oak doors.
If I thought the outside was amazing, the interior was indescribable in comparison.
I let out an appreciative whistle, and Elisa turned towards me. "Do you like it? I hope that you do. Lisa, be a dear and show Lawrence to his room please."
"Come on, I'll give you the grand tour after." Lisa said, grabbing me by the arm. She pulled me up the stairs, obviously excited to show me around.
"So this will be your room." She said, opening a room at least three times the size of mine at home.
"This is my room?" I asked, looking at my lodging. There was a 32-inch flatscreen, a desk, a queen sized bed, and my own bathroom.
"Yup, meet me outside when you're done, I'll show you around." Lisa said, giving me a smile. She exited the room, leaving me to get situated.
I sighed in peace, still drinking in my surroundings. I quickly mapped out where I would put all of my things. I started to put away my clothing first, putting each article in their respective spots. I then went into the bathroom, and started to put my toiletries in the cabinet, before a voice on a intercom sounded through the house.
"Everyone, please come downstairs for a family meeting." Ellie's voice called.
I put down my things, before picking up my last bag. It was the smallest, but most important to me out of all of the other things I brought with me. Inside contained one of my best talents.
Shouldn't keep these in my room.
I opened my door and saw Lisa, Flare and Grace walking down the stairs. I started walking after them, and they looked at me, flashing their dazzling smiles.
"Hey Lawrence, what's in the bag?" Flare asked, looking at my prized possessions.
"You'll see later." I replied, flashing a smirk.
I followed behind the three ladies, into a dining room where Ellie, Elisa, Ujaya, and Julie were sitting.
Elisa stood up as everyone sat down. We all looked at her, expecting her to begin to speak.
She looked at each of us in turn, before beginning to speak. "As we all know, Lawrence is going to be staying with us for a while, but I'm afraid that our meeting is going to be a little short lived."
The girls frowned a little. I was just curious to hear what she wanted to say.
She took a breath before continuing. "I have been called away to Kanto for a movie, and I probably won't be back till Christmas."
"What? But, you just got back!" Ujaya protested.
"Please don't leave so soon mom." Julie pleaded.
Elisa just smiled sadly. "Believe me girls, Lawrence will take care of you guys while I'm gone. He may not look like it, but he is a very talented young man. Besides, it's only for a couple of months, and I'll try to visit as frequently as possible."
"What do you mean by talented?" Ellie asked.
Elisa was about to answer, but her stomach began to growl. She gave a light blush, and looked at me.
"Lawrence, be a dear and make us all a lunch before I leave."
"Of course." I replied. Finally, I get to use these guys!
Lisa took me over to the next room, which turned out to be a kitchen. I set my bag on a counter, and slowly unzipped it.
I unveiled the cover, and inside were cooking utensils of all sorts. They were all very expensive, and my mother got them for me when I found one of my talents.
"Oh, those are pretty!" Lisa said, looking at my tools.
"Thank you, you can go sit with your family, I got lunch covered." I said.
"Okay then." Lisa smiled, leaving the room.
I popped my knuckles, and put a pan on a stove top. I went to the fridge and found a list on it.
Inside this fridge are many ingredients that I'm sure you are familiar with. Below is a list of the girls favorite types of food.
Grace: Fish and meats.
Lisa: Fresh vegetables and fruits.
Veronica: Fish and meats. Doesn't really like vegetables.
Ellie: Vegetables and meats. Doesn't particularly like fish.
Ujaya: Alright with anything really.
Flare: Likes spicy foods.
Julie: Likes sweet and sour foods.
Please feel free to anything in our home. And remember to make your mother proud!
I silently thanked Elisa in my head, having no idea what to make for them. I stared at their respective tastes, and decided to make a main course of Panini's, a side of salad, and a fruit smoothie for a drink.
Satisfied with my choices, I proceeded to pull out the ingredients. I used a Magikarp, and a Tauros for the meat, along with a few spices. I quickly made sure to make Lisa's a vegetarian sandwich, so I wouldn't mess her appetite. As I finished the sandwiches, a few girls kept on peeking their heads in to watch me at work. I quickly made a sitrus and oran berry smoothie, and making sure it was to my liking, I poured a total of nine glasses. I had already made the salad, and began to plate each dish, before setting them on a tray for me to carry.
I carefully made my way in the dining room, and the girls looked at me in amazement. After setting down everyone's plates, I sat down and said, "Hope you enjoy."
They all looked at my meal, before taking a timid bite. They all smiled at the rush of flavors.
"Wow, this is really good!" Flare said, happily munching on her Panini.
"How did you learn to cook like this anyway?" Ellie asked, taking a sip of her smoothie.
"My mom taught me, she's a five-star chef." I replied, also drinking my smoothie.
"Well it's definitely better than Grace's cooking!" Lisa said, grinning at me.
"Hey!" Grace yelled, as we all laughed.
Soon enough, they all let out content sighs. Elisa stood up, as did I as I began to clear the table.
"Well thank you for the wonderful lunch Lawrence, but I have to go, so see you all soon!" Elisa said, walking out the front door to her waiting limo. We all waved goodbye, and I was suddenly pulled inside the home.
"Where are you from?" Ellie asked, looking at my clothing, "You don't seem to be from around here…"
"I come from Lake Valor, in Sinnoh." I replied, curious as to what they wanted.
"So, do you have any other spectacular talents?" Grace asked, leaning in close, eager to learn about me.
"Well, I'm an accomplished fighter, I can obviously cook, and I know my way around chores." I listed off.
"Do you have a girlfriend?" Flare asked. I blushed, and the other girls giggled at me.
"No." I answered.
"Well, there are things that need to be done, so here is your list of duties." Ujaya said, unrolling a scroll, that reached the floor.
"Well that doesn't seem to hard." I said, shrugging. Ujaya then shook the scroll, until it rolled all the way to the far wall.
"Still not even compared to what I do at home." I said, as the girls stared at me curiously. I picked up the list, and looked over it. These will all take me about an hour…
"So, guess we will see if you can handle it." Julie said, walking upstairs.
"See yah in a bit Lawrence." Lisa said, as she and the other girls walked around the house.
I sighed, realizing I'm still not even sure where everything is. I began to read the list, and began searching for the cleaning supplies.
Guess I'll know soon enough.
And cut! So what did you guys think? Is it good, bad, or just plain s#!*? Please review, and join me again for next chapter! SL is outta here!
