The Clefairy walked through the woods alone. It was quiet. It was a
nice day. Weather reports said there was a storm heading to Fuschia, but
he hopes to get a Lapras or a ship before the weather. Suddenly, he
tripped over a hidden root.
"$%#@ it!" White Blade was not in a good mood. He picked himself up.
Being in a Clefairy's body had some adjusting to do. He also found he
had an unusual urge for sweets. Not something he liked.
"In the name of Allahkazam, I swear I am going to get this done and over
with as soon as possible!" He started getting hungry and saw an apple
tree. He tried climbing it, but being so small, he had trouble.
He climbed on on a branch after what seemed hours, only to find a Pikachu
had already found lunch. He saw an apple and tried reaching it, only to
find it just out of reach. He took a small jump and nearly fell off.
Clinging to the branch, he heard the Pikachu laughing at him. "Pika
"Yeah, you laugh, I'm hungry. I don't suppose you'd be willing to help
me here, would ya?" The Pikachu stared in shock. "Please?"
"You talk like a human?"
"Yeah, no big deal. I was trained." He knew this was a lie, but he
couldn't really trust anyone or anything. Besides, it wasn't really a
lie. Humans learn to speak like they were trained. It's just harder for
pokemon to learn how.
"Grr... so your master plan on capturing me?" The Pikachu got extremely
"No I don't plan on capturing you. Noone's my master except me. Dang
apple." His stomach rumbled. The Pikachu still kept his guard and
started charging up a Thundershock. "Hey, I told you, I'm not here for a
fight. All I wanted was an apple!" He recognized the charge build up,
the Pikachu was getting ready to launch a strike. He thought to himself,
"This is not my day."
The Pikachu shot out a small bolt... hitting the apple stem. The apple
landed right in front of White Blade's feet. "There, got it for you."
White blade picked it up and took a bite. A little warm, just how he
liked. "Thanks, you don't know... Ekans!"
"What?!" Behind them, an Ekans was looking for lunch. The Pikachu
looked easy enough, the Clefairy would be trouble. Either way, he'd be
eating good. The Pikachu froze in terror. The Ekans coiled and
and got a mouthful of apple. He spit it out and looked to see who threw
it, only to meet the Clefairy face to face. White Blade grabbed its neck
and said "Listen you, I'm not in the mood to be lunch today, got it? Now
get out of here!" He threw the Ekans off balance and it fell straight to
the ground. He turned around to see the Pikachu staring again. "You OK?
The Pikachu just jumped up and grabbed an apple. "Thanks. I... I didn't
want to be lunch either." He handed the apple to White Blade. "Sorry
you had to lose your lunch."
"It's not a problem. I was just as scared as you. If he had gotten you,
I'd have been his next target. Ekans will eat as much as they can when
they get the chance."
That night, they were sitting in the tree talking. White Blade told his
story in full. The Pikachu asked questions, naturally. "So, you go to
Cinnabar and look for what you're supposed to do. How do you know that
the information you're looking for will be there?"
"I don't, but it's the best place to start. I'm going to have to find
someway to get there. No money means I'll have to sneak a ride or
"Why didn't you just use one of you pokemon from before your became a
"It's a new life. I doubt catching pokemon will be an option. I do know
I'll need something more then my bare hands to get through this. I'm
stopping by the Gym in Fuschia before hitting the road. Maybe I can get
a sword there. Koga taught me how to use one before, and though I'm very
rusty, it could be useful."
"Pokemon don't use weapons."
"Farfetch'd, Cubone, and Marowak do. Besides, if I'm going to brave the
Cinnabar mansion looking for info, I'm going to have to deal with
whatever I find there. Plus, I need to start training this body like a
pokemon. I don't know what I can learn, but I should still be able to
"Well, I'm going to sleep. Maybe I'll see you in the morning. Good
night." The Pikachu promptly fell asleep.
White Blade remembered that Pikachus can fall asleep whenever they want.
Not a bad idea for himself either. He got himself as comfotable as
possible and laid back. He looked up at the stars and prayed that he
could get this done as soon as he could.
He walked into Fuschia City, munching on one last apple. He looked West
and saw storm clouds in the distance. Cinnabar and then Professor Oak to
reclaim Draconi if possible. He was going to need help, that much was
evident. He only hoped Draconi recognized him.
Marching towards the gym, he noticed the damage from some time ago was
fully repaired. He hoped Koga didn't hold that against him at all.
