He found her smile infectious, and leaned in with a big grin, hugging her tightly. Shedding tears of joy, he picked her up in his arms and swung her around wildly. "Aerie, you have no idea how happy I am!" "Wanna bet?" Aerie giggled in his ear. She threw her legs up around him, and the next thing they knew, they had crashed to the ground. "OW!" Seth moaned after hitting the dirt. "Aerie, and you say I'm rough...." He chuckled and let his fingers drift along the softness of her cheek. "Sorry," Aerie made herself comfortable. "And I hope you aren't disappointed or anything..." "Nah." Seth wrapped his arms about her. "I was hoping you wouldn't want to rush it...." He leaned forward to kiss her briefly, feeling giddy. He felt like the luckiest guy in both worlds! "So.....does this mean we're engaged?" He blushed slightly, which amazed Aerie. "I suppose we are..." Aerie laughed and then looked thoughtful. "Now, who would have thought Dad and Mewtwo would show? Talk about strange occurences....with our luck they'll probably end up crashing the wedding." Seth shifted on the dirt. "Well, if they're still around by that time. Didn't you say Mewtwo was dead?" Aerie shrugged, her violet hair falling over her shoulders. "Can't say for sure. Besides, that was there, and this is here." Seth nodded, rubbing up and down her back. He suddenly got an evil gleam in his eye. Aerie took note, but before she could react, she found herself flipped onto her back with large green eyes in her own. "What was that about us not existing? Do I need to prove to you that I exist?" Seth chuckled darkly. Aerie closed her eyes and smiled. "You can try." As Seth moved to kiss her again, he suddenly became aware of another presence. He frowned and moaned inwardly. Not again.....go away Dopplerrrr..... "Not Doppler!" Both Aerie and Seth startled and looked up at the familiar voice. "Mimic!" "That is being right!" A Flareon trotted over to them. "Mimic lost awhile there, but some persons Mimic can not identify told Mimic to come here to prevent lemon and breaking of rules.....whatever that mean. Why Seth and Aerie in dirt? Mimic hungry, let go!" Remembering her lost corndog, Aerie decided that they should all head back to the ongoing festival. Seth gave her his arm with a smile, and they started back, Mimic leading the way.
