Sorry about the long wait, things have been pretty rough for both me and the actual author, so I haven't really been in the mood. Family troubles, mainly. Anyways, you don't want to hear about me. xD On with the story. :3

By the way, loving those of you guys who've been calling yourselves "Calem's Mum" and "Calem". Made me chuckle reading over your little reviews. :)

I woke up to the sensation of warm breath on my neck and arms around my waist. I tilted my head up to see Sycamore... No, wait, Augustine, cuddling me close to his chest. I considered rousing him, but he looked so cute asleep that I just left him. I lay my head back down on the pillow and looked at the alarm clock by his bed.


Sighing, I closed my eyes again. There was no chance of sleep now, because the thoughts of last night had already drifted into my head. In hindsight, it probably wasn't the best thing for me to have done. After all, there is quite a gap between our ages. Was it really the appropriate thing to do?

I opened one eye and looked back at the clock.


I sighed again. If only I could get back to sleep, but this position just wasn't comfortable. Also, right at the back of my mind, something was niggling me. I just couldn't put my finger on what it was.


What was it? I can't seem to relax. I also have a throbbing underneath, from where I lost my virginity last night. Remembering this, I glanced over at the mess on the bed sheets. I could feel myself blushing, despite the fact I was the only person awake in the room. We did that, and it was kind of frightening. Plus, I had told Augustine not to wear a...

Oh crap! I jumped with a start, stirring the Professor from his sleep. I struggled to get out of the bed as quickly as possible, and I reached for my clothes. The morning-after pills! That was it!

I could hear Augustine swearing in French while still in bed, obviously surprised by my sudden burst of energy.

"Serena, qu'est-ce qui se passe? Revenez dans le lit, imbécile," he hissed. I, unfortunately, had no clue what he was saying, but I guessed it wasn't good.

Fortunately, I knew a little French from two years of learning it in school. "Les pilules, salaud!" I shouted, putting my bra and pants on.

"God, no need to rush," he sighed, clambering out. "They're not going to run away."

I stood for a moment, feeling like a dolt. Why had I bothered to rush up? Anyway, no point considering this now. I finished getting dressed and headed out the door. This was the perfect opportunity to give myself a free-for-all tour of his flat.

It was rather spacious, situated above his lab. It had a very modern kitchen-dining room space, a large, homely living room attached and two doors leading out, one to the bedroom and the other, presumably, to the bathroom.

Striding confidently out of the bedroom, Augustine filled the kettle and put it on. I noticed that he hadn't bothered to get fully dressed, and instead was just in his underwear. I also noticed, quite happily, that his six pack was left showing. I felt the sudden urge to go over and cuddle with him. So I did.

Augustine was still facing the opposite way, preparing the drinks, so I wrapped my arms around his waist. This caused him to spin around and pull me in for a hug. We stood like that for a few minutes, until I felt his grip start to loosen. My hands instinctively reached for his chest as soon as I remembered his six pack. I was grinning inwardly.

He's so beautiful, I thought, and he's all mine!

"Ma chère, you like what you see?" I looked up to see him grinning mischievously.

"I do indeed," I murmured, leaning upward and grazing my lips against his, before pulling away, smirking.

He leant against me and pushed me back against the counter, placing his hands either side of me so I couldn't escape. Forcefully, he pushed his lips against mine in a passionate kiss, sliding his tongue into my mouth.

I didn't like to admit it, but I was enjoying it. But, I had to remember to take the pills.

Using both my hands, I shoved him off me and stepped forward.

"Now, now, not this early in the morning." His face went full-on pout, but I chose to ignore it. "Anyway, where are the pills?"

Roughly, Augustine reached up and yanked a cupboard door open, throwing the packet right at me.

"God, you're so childish sometimes!" I exclaimed, exasperated.

"Yeah, but you love me for it!" The Professor grinned, his mood suddenly, and without warning, changing. Without realizing, I grinned back. Was I ever going to understand this man?

"So, what are you going to be up to today?" I asked Augustine as we went down the elevator to his lab.

"Just the usual. I'm still trying to figure out Mega Evolution, which you're supposed to be helping me with." With that, he smirked slyly.

"Hey, I am helping you! I've been using it a lot, and you even said the other day I was a big help!" I shouted.

"Okay, okay, calm down! Sheesh, don't get up in my face or anything." He grinned, and I smiled in return to let him know his was forgiven. "Anyway, can I request you battle with another Mega Evolution holder today?"

I grabbed my Holo Caster out of my bag and flicked through my contacts. There were only four other Mega Evolution holders - Korrina, Diantha, Lysandre and Calem.

Lysandre's out of the question, since the incident with Team Flare. In fact, I'm not sure if he even still has the Mega Ring.

Calem... Definitely not, after what he tried last time I saw him.

Diantha isn't too bad a choice, as she is pretty confident with her Mega Charm. Unfortunately, though, she's all over Augustine, and he's mine, not hers.

That left only Korrina. She was the Mega Evolution successor, so she'd be up for helping us.

"How does Korrina sound?" I asked.

"Sure," he replied. "Send her a message."

Hey, Korrina, it's Serena. Professor Sycamore needs help with his Mega Evolution research today, and because you're the successor, you're the best choice. Are you up for battling me? Please respond as soon as possible. Thanks!

About a minute later, I had a response.

Oh, Serena, I'd love to, but I can't, not today. We have an event on at my Gym today. Any other day would've been fine, but... So sorry!

Sighing, I turned my attention back to the Professor, who had heard the whole thing.

"Well, why don't you try Diantha?" he asked.

I gave him a dirty look. "She'll go mad flirting with you! It'll make me seriously jealous!"

"Well, if it makes you feel any better, I'll ignore her, as I love you." Hearing him say that made me feel great, I have to say.

"...Alright then. I guess it'll give me a good opportunity to battle with my latest addition - Mega Scizor."

Hey, Diantha, the Professor and I are doing some more Mega Evolution research today. I need to battle someone else who can use it. Would you be able to help out today? It's absolutely fine if you can't, honest. Reply soon.

The response came almost instantly.

Hey, Serena! Sure, sure, I'm up for helping out! I'll be over to the lab in about five minutes! See you there!

Looks like I was going to have some competition that afternoon.

Finally finished. Had some serious writer's block, but it's done. :P Please leave reviews! They make my day! :)
