(Semi-ATTN Hedgehodgey) Date: Friday, February 04, 2000 6:20 PM "I can't beleive I'm doing this," Smasher complained to himself. He wasn't fond of the idea of Shuriken dating Misty's Staryu after the scene at the gym. He could still hear the taunting Misty gave him after he lost. Smasher decided to at least try to be open-minded about it. Smasher knocked on the door of Misty's house. He had already tried going to the gym, but they told him that she had gone home already. Shuriken had gotten directions to her house from one of the Pokemon hanging around the gym. Begrudgedly, Smasher walked him over there. Misty answered the door. She seemed very annoyed to see that it was Smasher. "What do you want, you little punk?" she demanded. "It's about Shuriken, my Staryu," Smasher tried not to look embarassed. At the mention of the name, Misty's Staryu peeked outside through the doorway. Shuriken saw her and came up to her. "What about him?" Misty inquired impatiently. "He, uh..." Smasher started. He couldn't get the words out. He decided to stand straight and say it loudly (like when Brock asked to be Susan's apprentice). "Shuriken wants to ask your Staryu out on a date!" <<Uh, hi,>> said Shuriken in Staryu-speak. This would be a series of pulses of glowing light from his gem core. <<Hi...>> Misty's Staryu said in a soft tone. "What!?" exclaimed Misty. "You know, a date," explained Smasher. "A little dinner, a movie, maybe a walk through the park..." Smasher wasn't as interested in getting Shuriken a date now as much as he was interested in seeing how Misty would respond. So far, Misty was getting upset. Smasher decided that was what he was going for. "Then we'd come back to your place for coffee, y'know? So when should we pick her up? Sevenish? Eight?" <<So, uh,>> began Shuriken. <<I was wondering if you'd like to... you know...>> <<I'd love to,>> Staryu already knew what the question was. She had been thinking about it since the match. "If you think I'm going to let my Staryu go out with a little street-punk like yours, think again!" Misty said. "After all the damage you caused to the gym, I should have you arrested!" "Hey, chill babe," Smasher said, correctly assuming it would make her more mad. "It's all good. Lets just have bygone be bygones. Besides, the whole Magikarp thing wan't my fault," he continued, stating in a manner that suggested that it was hers. [At this point, Smasher and Misty get into an arguement that I'd rather not get into detail about.] <<Wha, huh?>> Shuriken responded. Considering how Misty was reacting, he was surprised that Staryu hadn't Double-Slapped him by now. <<To go out with you,>> Staryu finished for him. <<I'd love to.>> Shuriken figuritive heart soared. He felt like dancing into the street, swinging around lamposts and singing showtunes. <<Really? You will?>> Shuriken excitedly asked. <<Uh huh,>> Staryu answered, giggling. <<AW! All right! So when can I yaaahahh!>> Smasher suddenly grabbed Shuriken and tucked him under his arm. "If you're going to be that way about it, fine!" Smasher yelled. "You try to be nice to people, you try to be courteous, but when you cause a little property damage suddenly your pets aren't allowed to date other people's pets! Well then I'm leaving! Good day, MA'AM!" With that, Smasher stormed off, his arm tightly wrapped around his squirming Staryu. Misty hmph'ed and slammed the door shut. Unable to manipulate the doorknob, Staryu could only watch as her love disappeared into the sunset. To be continued.... Will Shuriken ever find true love? Will Misty and Smasher resolve their differences and get along? Will Misty's Staryu learn to turn a doorknob? Stay tuned, and you'll find out!
