After a long bus ride the brakes sounded with a squeal, waking Darius up
with a startle. "Welcome to Vermillion City," the bus driver's voice
crackled over the intercom, "thank you for traveling with Arcanine Transit."
Darius grabbed his bag and walked down the steps, "See ya later, kid."
"Oh, uh bye, thanks again," Darius replied to the driver. He smiled
back at him, shut the door and pulled away. The boy turned away and scanned
the scenery, the beach stretched for as far as the eye could see. Tourists
and locals alike were in their bathing suits, tanning in the sun or
frolicing in the water. The sun pelted down onto Darius' shoulders causing
him to sweat.
He rubbed his arm across his forehead and head into town, looking for
the Pokemon Center. He came upon the domed building and entered the door,
he relished in the air conditioning and walked up to the counter. "Hello,
how may I help you? Do you need a room? Your pokemon healed?" Nurse Joy
"Just a room please." She nodded and handed Darius a key, he smiled at
her and went up the stairs. He unlocked the door and set his bag on the bed
along with Grimer's and Golbat's pokeballs. He let out Starmie who in turn
hovered in mid-air and made its noise.
"Hey, Starmie, wanna go for a swim?" It made its noise in aproval and
hovered in wait while Darius changed into a wet suit. They went back
downstairs and out the door, making their way to the beach. Darius crossed
the hot sand and dove into the water, followed by Starmie.
They resurfaced but Darius was standing on Starmie in a surfing
position. The starfish took off in the water heading for an oncoming wave.
Darius laughed as they cut through the tube made by the crest curling over.
The next wave came but this time they got on top of it. They shot the curl
for as long as they could but Darius wiped out and fell into the water.
Starmie was quick to rescue him but Darius had no intention of going
surfing again. He got Starmie to take him over to the calm water. "Okay
now, float on your back so I can lay on you." It shook its body in showing
negativity, "You're right I shouldn't make you stay still. It's been
forever since you were in water, go ahead and have fun I'll go rent an inner
