Here it is, chapter one. I don't want any comments regarding any names, like Sakura and Azosun, I gave each with a reason.
An Unusual Beginning
The alarm clock rang its loud ‘bell’. 7:00, as most people would say, was the time. The sun’s rays came through the window. Morning had begun. Sounds of slight movements in the quilt could be heard. Someone was getting up. The boy sat up and stretched out his arms. He yawned in the process. He looked at the other boy in the room, but then turned away for a second. He remembered his nightmare, but he decided to forget about it. He looked at the other boy again.
“Danny, it’s morning.” The boy said to the other boy, whose name was Danny. The other boy looked at the watch and said, “7:00 in the morning to be exact.” Danny sat up on his bed. He let out a yawn and brushed aside some of his hair which got in the way of his face.
“Guess today’s the day, Xano.” Danny said.
“What day?” The boy named Xano asked.
“The day in which we get our first Pokémon.” Danny replied.
“Oh, that day. Remember what mom told us?” Xano asked.
“Yeah, she told us she’d get us new clothes. She must be downstairs.” Danny said. “By the way, why didn’t you remember anything mom told? You’re better than me when it comes to stuff like this. What happened to you?” He continued.
“Bad dream. A nightmare to be exact. Don’t want to talk about it.” Xano replied.
“Okay. You go down first. I need to do something here first.” Danny said. Xano nodded in reply. He got up, went into the bathroom, brushed his teeth and proceeded to the stairs. Stepping down slowly, he made it to the ground floor. No one was there. He went to the bedroom door and knocked. After two minutes of waiting, his mother came out.
“What is it? Came down for your clothes then?” His mom told Xano. He looked at her amazed. “It was easy to figure it out. Today I promised, and today it is. Nothing is going to be late this time, after how long you had to wait for most other things. Wait here.” His mom continued. She went inside her room. After a minute, she came out with three boxes, the kind used to keep clothes. “Take these to upstairs. One for you, one for Danny, and one for Sakura.” She said. Xano looked surprised.
“Sakura? Who‘s that?” Xano asked.
‘You don’t remember Sakura? You don’t remember your own sister?” His mom replied.
“Sakura…I remember now!” Xano lied. He had no Idea who was Sakura. He wanted to see his new clothes as soon as possible. He took the clothes and rushed upstairs. He saw Danny looking at another flight of stairs. “Where did those stairs come from? I was sure we had only two floors in this house.” Xano said.
“I’m not sure how they got here overnight. Listen.” Danny said. The sound of someone singing in a shower could be heard. “I tried the door, but it was locked. I knocked, but no response.” Danny said. The brothers went into deep thought. Xano recited what their mother said to him. ‘So it’s probably our ‘sister’ Sakura up there. But I never remembered anyone else in our family.” Danny said.
“Neither do I. But we mind as well wear our new clothes now. They came in sets.” Xano said. Danny agreed. They had a quick shower, and came out completely different than they went in. They had entered with pajamas, and came out with clothes that looked better than anything else they ever wore. The first to come out was Danny.
His hair was shining red. His eyes were a dark maroon. His hair reached his collar, where it stopped. His shirt’s sleeves extended to his wrists. It was mainly red, with striped of purple which travelled the collar, centre, wrists and shoulders. A dark, black pant covered his legs. A grey belt divided his shirt from his pant. His black and white shoes finished off his new looks. Xano was to come out next.
He sported a grey and red baseball style cap. He had bright blue eyes. Two thick strands of hair rest on his face, near his eyes. The red and yellow cap fitted him nicely. His hair shined blue. The hair on the back of his head stopped at the neck. He wore a plain, yellow shirt, but most of it was covered by his blue jacket. The jacket had gold colored strips in places similar to Danny’s shirt. The jacket had two pockets which resided at the area which covered the chest, one on each side. His grey pants were quite plain. A couple of extra pockets spiced it up a bit. His red and white shoes were most comfortable.
“Guess mom didn’t upset us, huh?” Danny said.
“You said it, bro.” Replied Xano. Their attention turned towards the other box of clothes.
“What should we do with it?” Danny asked.
“Wait for Sakura to call out for someone. Ask her to slightly open the door so that we can slide in the clothes.
“Good idea. She must be enjoying herself. Wonder how our ‘sister’ looks like.” Danny said.
“So do I. But just wait for her to dress up first, okay?” Xano said. Danny nodded. Just like they thought a voice came out.
“Hello? Is anybody there? Mom? I’ve run out of clothes I can wear. Can someone give me a fresh pair?” The voice asked. Danny looked at Xano and nodded.
“Just open the door slightly and I’ll slide in a pair of clothes.” Xano said. The door slightly opened. Xano hurried to the table where the box was kept and picked it up. He threw it at the door at the top of the staircase, and a hand picked it up. The door then slammed shut. Xano and Danny sat on their beds and waited. Five minutes later, the voice came from the door again.
“Come in, whoever you are. Don’t be shy.” The voice said. The door opened up fully. Xano and Danny ascended up the stairs and went in. The room was about the same size as their room. Sitting on the bed was a girl. Xano and Danny sat on either side of her. “Who are you? I doubt I’ve seen you, but you look so familiar.” The girl said. “My name’s Sakura. What’s yours?” Sakura said.
“My name’s Danny, and my big brother there is Xano. We’ve been told by our mother that you were our sister. Now that you mention it, even you look familiar, though we’ve never seen you before.” Danny answered.
The girl named Sakura wore a white headband. Her brown hair was short around the face, but it was really long at her back. She wore a pink sleeveless top, quite plain except around the edges. She wore a white skirt which touched her knees. She wore a kind of glove which went from her fingertips to her elbow. She wore socks in a similar manner. Her green and black shoes made her look a little different.
“Really? I can’t believe that she would say such a thing. I’ve never seen you two before.” Sakura said.
“Same here. We’ve never seen you before either. Why would mom say such a thing? Either way, even you got new clothes. Are you getting your first Pokémon today as well?” Danny asked. Sakura thought for a second.
“Yeah! I remember now! I was supposed to get a Pokémon today! How could I forget!” she replied. The expression on Xano’s face was immediately understood, once he was seen by his brother and sister. He wanted to go out to get their Pokémon, as it was getting late already. “Okay then, let’s go!” Sakura said. The trio got up from the bed. They descended down the two flights of stairs, bid a temporary goodbye to their mother, and went out.
Danny ran to a sign. He read what was written there. “Spark Town” the sign showed. “So this is spark town.” Danny said, “Time to run to school!” He continued. Xano and Sakura saw the town around them.
Spark town was filled with life. Trees, plants, humans and Pokémon inhabited the area. The houses were nicely planned and neat, along with the town’s building placement. Roads were nonexistent, for the town itself was so small that one end to the other could easily be covered in 20 minutes. Their own house was among the larger ones, considering most were of moderate size. Some were quite small, but the inhabitants were mostly single. A fresh aroma filled the air, regardless of some electrical items placed in some odd places.
The trio darted towards the school. They were to finish their studies in their final test that day. The three entered, and they came out in half an hour. Since they were seated separately and were given different questions, they started discussing about their results.
“The paper was so easy. It was all about type advantages and Pokémon attacks.” Xano said.
“Same here, except I didn’t find it easy.” Danny replied. “What about you Sakura?” he asked.
“I had it quite differently. They asked me about the bond between trainer and Pokémon. But either way, we all passed and we have proof that we did. Let’s just go to the lab now.” Sakura replied. Her brother’s agreed and they set off for the lab.
After a three minute run, they reached the lab. They knocked at the door. After no response, they rang the doorbell. They opened by itself. The lab was highly complex and nothing like spark town’s exterior. Full of electrical equipment, technology, chemicals and such, there was a different feel in the air. A tall young man got up from his chair and approached the trio.
“Hello there. You may call me professor Azosun. I’ve been awaiting some graduates to come for their Pokémon. Now, can I know your names and how old you three are?” The tall man, who was named Azosun, asked.
“You can call me Danny and I’m thirteen” Danny said. “I’m Sakura and I’m fourteen.” Sakura said. “Xano, fourteen.” Said Xano in a solid tone.
“Alright then. Come with me to the starters you can choose from.” Said Azosun, walking away. He was wearing a white coat and white clothes, like most scientists. He had a robotic arm instead of an organic arm on his left. It was mostly made of a shining silver metel, with streams of blue energy flowing through it. It did not go unnoticed.
“Azosun, how come you have a robotic arm?” Sakura asked.
“I had an accident long back and used this to make up for my lost arm.” He bluntly replied. It was clearly understood he was hiding something, but no one bothered to ask. After walking a few yards across the large place, they arrived at a place where three pokéballs were kept. The professor released the creatures inside the balls, to reveal three small extraordinary creatures.
“Koto!” said one of the creatures. It was slightly long and limbless. Small bits of steel protected it at some places. In the place of forelimbs, a small steel stick and a steel cylindrical tube were present on either side. The steel was shining silver, while the rest was a light green. It had a small head covered with steel, and showed only small green eyes. “That would be Kotocero, a grass type Pokémon.” Azosun said. “That one’s mine!” Sakura said, pushing aside everyone else. She took that Pokéball and brought the Kotocero back inside.
“Agra!” Said another creature. This one was black and scaly all over. It resembles a baby alligator. Sharp teeth, long tail, strong muscles, it had it all. “This one is mine.” Danny announced. “That would be Agrafen, a water type.” Azosun said.
“That means the other one is mine” Xano proclaimed. The creature he was pointing at was a short, bipedal dragon-like creature. It had tiny wings, but it could not fly. It was armored head to toe. A small horn of fire stuck out from its forehead. It had short hands and legs, yet it was able to stand upright. “That would be Piiron, the fire type. It seems that I have satisfied you three. You may now go to the training grounds.” Azosun concluded. The three left the place.
The training grounds were a place for beginning trainers to train. The trio went there. The place was pretty much Spark Town without buildings. Strangely, the three pokéballs glowed in different colors and floated through the way. Pokémon stepped away in fear. They were nearing the entrance to their first challenge. Suddenly, Azosun dashed into them and pushed them into Route XS01.
“What did you do that for?” Danny asked in an angry tone. “There’s no time to explain now. Run!” Azosun said. They ran further into Route XS01. Azosun’s robotic arm transformed into a strange weapon, and a blue beam flew from it all the way to Spark Town. A huge explosion was heard at where Spark Town once was.
“What did you do? Why are you making us hurry? What is the reason behind this? How did you do that? You’ve been hiding things from us.” Xano said. “I can’t explain now. I can only do so at night. Right now, you’re not safe without me. No more questions until nightfall, please.” Azosun said. The three siblings decided to be quit till nightfall, and ask all questions at night, even those between themselves, for they felt truth behind Azosun’s words.
I am open to answer questions on the plot and story, but I warn I will keep it hidden(like being colored white) for it would contain spoilers.)
