What's the point of this?
I'm lost anyway
Hey, maybe you ought to smile
Do you want to dance?
Tell me what you think
Because I really don't know here
Where's that smiling face I always knew
Did life deal you a bad card?
Bull don't take it out on me
Did you think you were smart
I don't think so my sweet
Maybe your the one that's out of control
Wind and Dev started walking to the nearest Pigeot Express. It was still a
long ways off. Dev thought it was a bad idea. Pokemon Tech wasn't exactly a
great experience for him. This little summer "reunion" was just a doomed idea.
He didn't exactly leave on good terms with his family or especially his
brother either. In fact he might have gone and shot a lot of the damn kids in
that school if he had the chance. Just because he wasn't as great and
privileged as his half-brother didn't mean that everyone would hassle him. Dev
discarded his thoughts and looked over at Wind. He was more concerned about
her condition to go to this so-called "relive" your memories week. She left
when she was only eleven, just three years ago. He'd barely been gone for a
few months. Since then he'd gotten stronger, tougher ... bolder, he wouldn't
be pushed around there anymore. Scratching the goatee he was trying to grow he
wondered how Wind managed to pull herself together suddenly. Just a few days
ago she tried slashing her wrists. Now she was just fine and dandy.
God, I hope she isn't on crack Dev thought, smiling at Wind. He looked down at
Sandshrew, Wind's only friend when she was traveling the last few months
without him. He could tell it was probably having the same thoughts. After
walking a few more steps Wind sat down on a rock and motioned him to sit down
"You know, I think about ready to talk about this, about everything." Wind
Dev nodded and held her hand, Sandshrew crept up beside her.
"First of all, the reason I want to go to this little reunion is to show
everybody that I'm ok, you know, I haven't gone nuts or anything." Wind said
realizing how wrong her words were. "No, that's not right. I'm a total
basketcase, but this is something I have to do. It's important to me to show
everyone I wasn't washed down the drain. I know I have issues I have to deal
with, but I know I can go threw it. I'm successful you know, I have two
Gyarados, I have two badges and eight pokemon"
Dev nodded thinking of himself, but he didn't have anything to show for his
journeys unlike Wind. He was stronger physically and mentally.
"What about..." Dev started.
"You know what that girl Minax said to me? She said she wanted me to feel that
pain she felt. That she'd been left alone, abused. That shows how smart she
is. You know what I've been through?" Wind started, angry. "I don't know about
her pain, but mine is sure as hell enough to live with. I'm glad I met her,
otherwise I might have become her, now I know how foolish it is to try to bring
pain on others for your own." That was it. The burning for revenge Wind had
always felt started to dissolve. "I use to think, I have issues and everyone
else was gonna pay. Not anymore. I'm not twelve anymore. I wouldn't look for
the easy way out anymore. It's in me, and nobody else."
Dev looked at her stunned. She had reached an absolution, one that he hoped to
find someday. Wordlessly he pulled her arms around her.
"Come on, those Pidgeots will leave without us." He whispered.
"The world bites, live with it" Pen:brush:Keyboard:Paint.
One day the mother weedle will have her revenge!
