In the last story...
Shikaku and his new Magmar, Travis, were heading back to Saffron City.
However, they know not of the troubles that will meet them when they meet up
with Mary, the psycho-bitch from hell.
Part two of "Everything you need to know in life you learned in Kindergarten
(But Shikaku apparantly never went)"
It was after dark by the time Shikaku made it back to the train station.
Mary had made several phone calls by the time Shikaku finally walked in. She
walked up to him and immedietly got in his face.
"What the hell did you do? Are you a god damned retard? Do you realize
how much you've set me back? I've been here for like four hours WAITING FOR
YOU because you're an idiot!" She seemed genuinely angry, which was
something that Shikaku had come to expect in the short time they had been
"Hey, hey, hold on a second. I can explain."
"THERE'S NOTHING TO EXPLAIN. You had me worried! You could have been
killed!" Shikaku reacted a little strangely to this statement. She might
actually have feelings for him.
"Wait a second...you were worried? About me? The person you hate so much
for being a sexist pig who thinks with his penis?" He cracked a smile. "I
think you're falling for me."
"What? NO! I was worried about you because I would have been out of a
job! As far as I'm concerned, you're just another failure that I've been
assigned to fix! Your feelings mean nothing to me, and there's no way in
hell that I'd fall in love with anyone while on the job, especially a jerk
"...ouch..." Shikaku took a step back, and she turned her head away and
sighed. "Ok, sorry. My mistake."
"Whatever. Let's just get to a hotel and get some rest. We'll make the
rest of our trip tommorow morning." She turned around and dragged a bag
behind her. "You don't have any luggage, do you? No matter..."
The next morning...
Shikaku rolled over in bed as a loud banging on his door refused to
stop. He finally got out of bed and walked up to the door to unlock and open
it. Mary was standing at the door with a cup of coffee. She looked at him
and began to laugh.
"Oh my god! Don't you wear anything when you sleep?"
"I am wearing something. It's my birthday suit." Still groggy from the
abrupt awakening, Shikaku rubbed his eyes.
"Whatever, captain commando. Get some clothes on and meet me downstairs
in 10 minutes. We're taking a walk." She smiled and looked down before
walking down the hall. Shikaku slowly walked back in and slipped on some
clothes. He put on his belt and released his Magmar.
"Hey, we're going for a walk with that lady I told you about. You know,
Mary? Yeah, well, she's taking us somewhere. I don't know where yet, but
she's starting to act kind of decent now so it can't be that bad, right?" He
looked at his Magmar who was examining his new surroundings. "Yeah, that's
what I thought. C'mon."
Shikaku grabbed a small hand towel from the hotel room and put it in his
jacket before leaving the room. Travis followed him to the elevator.
"Now, if she's acting a little bitchy, don't blow her up with fire or
anything. Technically she has authority on everything I do, and if she's in
a bad mood, it's probably just PMS." Travis nodded as the elevator door
opened. They found Mary sitting in a chair with her legs crossed. She looked
stunning that morning, and Shikaku found himself pondering a new hobby-
pondering about Mary.
"You know, there's something about you." Shikaku looked at Mary, who
hadn't noticed their arrival yet.
"And what would that be? Hey, is that yours?" Mary pointed to Travis and
smiled. "It's so cute! I've never seen a Magmar before!"
"Yeah, his name is Travis." Shikaku kind of grimaced.
"Hiya Travis! I'm Mary. Keep your trainer in check for me, ok?" Travis
stared at Mary. He seemed to like her, and Shikaku started to feel a little
jealous. She smiled and stood up. "Are you ready?"
"Yeah, let's get going." He recalled Travis back into his pokeball. They
left the hotel and started a trip outside.
Mary led them to the threshhold between Saffron and the path to
Cerulean. They walked for about an hour and a half before they got to a
small, stone cottage hidden in the woods. There was an area cleared around
it and there were several small trees surrounding the . The scent of white
plum filled the air, and the mid-day's sunlight shot through the leaves of
the trees over which the cottage rested. Mary took a small key and opened
the door to the cottage, and slowly walked in.
"I used to live here. It's a great place to just sit and think...and
it's always a great place to train." She smiled and walked around, picking
up pictures and such.
"Don't get nostalgic on me, please." Shikaku sat on a couch and looked
at his watch.
"Yeah...well, we should probably start your training. Grab a broom and
help me out." Mary walked outside to a clearing and Shikaku brought a few
brooms. He looked at the clearing for a second, and realized it was a small
Pokemon battle area. He began to sweep and handed Mary a broom. After about
10 minutes, the area was clear and ready for battle.
"Now, let's go. Choose your pokemon." She threw out a pokeball which
"Uh...damnit...Travis, go!" Shikaku pointed to the Corsola and threw a
pokeball. Travis appeared. "Um...use...shit..."
"Corsola, earthquake!" Mary's Corsola jumped high into the air.
"Fuck! Travis, Flamethrower, quickly!" Travis opened his mouth and
flames exited quickly. They spiralled around, however, they missed Corsola,
who slammed into the ground, causing a tremor around Travis, and surrounding
him in dirt and earth. His tail flame reduced to a small ember, and Shikaku
called him back.
"Heh...well, at least it's cute." Mary winked at Shikaku as he thought
about what pokemon to send next.
"Mark, kick it's ass." Shikaku released his Murkrow, Mark. "Use Faint
"Corsola, defense curl!" Corsola curled into a ball and hardened itself.
The Murkrow flew at a tremendous speed, disappeared, and reappeared in front
of Corsola. It's claws, although sharp and fast, were deflected by Corsola.
"Mark, use Toxic, and then Fly!"
"...what?" Mary seemed shocked by this.
"Your Murkrow has fly."
"And you walked all the way to Saffron?"
"You are such a FUCKING IDIOT. I was so worried."
"Uh..haha..I guess that was kind of stupid of me.."
"Oh my god.." Mary ran straight at Shikaku and jumped on him. She rammed
her fists into his face as he desperately tried to get her off of him. He
"What the hell?!" He wiped the blood from his mouth. She ran at him
again, screaming, and hitting him. They rolled around on the ground for a
second, struggling, while Murkrow and Corsola sat and watched. Eventually
Shikaku pinned Mary to the ground.
"My god, calm down." He smiled. "You know, you're really pretty when
"..." She threw him off of her and ran inside, locking the door.
"What the hell?" He looked at Murkrow and Corsola. "What the fuck are
you looking at?"
Shikaku is locked out of Mary's cottage because he's an idiot. Is Mary going
to kick his bitch-ass the entire month, or will he figure out some way to
get on her good side? TBC.
