Summer Starts Now
It was a beautiful morning in Vaniville Town; a young girl with hazel hair and blue eyes was asleep. A Fletchling flew into the room and flew right on to the girl.
"Ah!" The girl screamed falling off her bed. She groaned and rubbed slowly, as her eyes flicked open. "My head." She groaned.
"Good morning Summer." Fletchling chirped. The girl smiled and petted her Fletchling.
"Morning." Summer said. She quickly got up and got changed into her light blue dress and dark jacket. She looked at herself in the mirror and smiled. "Perfect." She said. Summer went downstairs and smiled at her mom. "Morning mom." She said.
"Oh morning Summer." Her mother, Grace said flipping some pancakes. "Did you sleep well?"
"Yeah." Summer replied. Her mother placed the plate of pancakes at the table and she enjoyed them in one gulp.
Just a few days ago Summer and her mom Grace moved from Kanto to Kalos because of her father's job in the police force. Summer was sad about the move because she misses some of her friends, but realizes she'll make some new friends here in Kalos.
After finishing her breakfast, Summer heard a knock at the door. Grace smiled after she heard the knock. "Summer, why don't you go and say hi to your new neighbors." She suggested.
"Okay." Summer replied. Summer got out of her seat and opened the door. Outside was a young boy with black hair, blue jacket, jeans, and black boots. And a young girl with tanned skin, dark brown hair in pigtails, a magenta blouse with 3 black ribbons, a small purple and back skirt, and pink boots.
"Hello, there I'm Calem, I'm your next door neighbor." Calem introduced holding Summer's hand and giving it a kiss. Summer blushed at the moment, but quickly shook it off.
"And I'm Shauna! Glad to meet ya!" She cheered. Summer smiled at the girl's personality. It was almost like hers when she was a young girl.
"Nice too meet you too, I'm Summer." Summer said introducing.
"Hey Summer, you know your name make me feel warm inside." Calem said giving a warm smile.
"Uh thanks." Summer said blushing and laughing nervously.
Shauna giggled at Calem's affection towards Summer. "Well anyways, Calem we should be getting to the next town." Shauna said.
Calem smiled. "Oh yeah! Summer you have to meet us in Aquacorde Town we have a gift for you." Calem said. He and Shauna ran off to Aquacorde Town.
Summer smiled and followed them to Aquacorde Town. "Hey Summer!" Calem called out. Summer turned around and smiled.
"We're over here!" Shauna yelled. Summer smiled and sat next to her friends, along with two other boys.
"Summer these are our friends, Trevor, who is an expert at photography. And Tierno who is an expert on dancing." Calem explained introducing his friends to Summer.
"Wow." Tierno said looking at Summer. "She's prettier then Shauna described her." He said.
"Ah." Summer blushed and smiled. "T-Thank you." She said.
"Your welcome, so." Tierno started. "Do you have a nickname?" He asked.
Summer nodded. "Yeah, I'm called Sunny back home." She said.
"Sunny! I love that name!" Trevor said smiling.
"Thank you." Summer replied.
"So Tierno, were you going to show us something?" Calem asked.
"Oh yeah." Tierno said being reminded by his friend. He went to his backpack and took out a small case. Inside, were three Pokeballs containing a Pokemon. "These were given to me by Prof. Sycamore." He explained. "He told me that Sunny, Calem and Shauna could pick one."
Summer then looked at Trevor and Tierno. "Wait what about you guys?" She asked.
"I already got my starter from Prof. Sycamore." Tierno said.
"And my dad gave me my starter as well." Trevor said showing his Pokeball.
Shauna giggled. "Ah ok." Shauna looked at the Pokeballs not sure what to pick. "Summer," Summer then looked at the young girl. "Could you pick first, I don't know what to pick." She said.
"Oh. Ok." Summer said. To be honest she didn't know whom to pick as well. She looked through the Pokeballs and frowned. "C-Can I see what's inside?" She asked.
Tierno nodded, and released the three starters from their Pokeballs. The starters were Chespin, a grass-type nut Pokemon, Fennekin, a fire-type fox Pokemon, and Froakie a water-type frog Pokemon.
"So which one do you pick?" Tierno asked.
"I pick," She stopped to look at the Pokemon, and grabbed the Fire-type Fox Pokemon. "Fennekin." She said.
"Great choice!" Calem cheered. "Do you have a nickname for him?" He asked.
Summer looked at her new Pokemon to think what would be a perfect nickname for him. After a while, she smiled. "I'm going to name you, Blaze." She said.
Fennekin, now named Blaze, smiled happily with his new name.
"I like that name too! What made you think of it?" Shauna asked.
"I just see this little Fennekin having fire in his eyes, like he's ready to fight, so Blaze is perfect for him." Summer explained.
"Then I'll get this cute Li'l Chespie." Shauna said hugging Chespin tight. Chespin smiled at Shauna's love and affection.
"That leaves you and me, Froakie." Calem said. Froakie grinned when it met its trainer.
Trevor then went to his bag, and took out three tablet devices. "Here you go. These are your Pokedex, they're useful for you." Trevor handed the Pokedex to Calem, Shauna and Summer."
"Wow! Thanks Trevor." Summer said.
Trevor smiled. Tierno got up and handed a letter that from Prof. Sycamore so Summer can give to her mother. "Prof. Sycamore told me, before you left on your journey." He said.
Summer grabbed the letter and looked at it. Her eyes widen when she saw it had a rose sticker on the envelope. "Wow thanks." Tierno smiled.
Trevor and Tierno stood up. "Well me and Trevor are going to go now," Tierno said.
"Were going to be looking for Pokemon, so we'll see you guys later." Trevor said.
"Okay, bye." Summer said waving to the guys as they left. "I better get going too, I have to give this letter to my mom before I leave." Summer got up from her seat and was running to go home, however, she stopped when Shauna pulled on her dress.
"Wait!" Shauna yelled. "Before you go, can we have a battle?" She asked.
Summer looked at Blaze who was determined to battle, Shauna, and gave him a smile. "Sure, why not. I want to see how Blaze is in battle."
Blaze jumped up and down, and went in front of Summer ready to battle. Shauna smiled and let out her Chespin so she can battle as well.
"Alright Blaze! Let's use Ember!" Summer commanded.
Blaze let out small flares of fire from its mouth and launched them at Chespin who got badly injured with them.
"Chespie use Tackle!" Shauna commanded. She thought since grass types are week to fire types, why not use Tackle to do some damage.
Chespie used her tackle attack on Blaze, but it didn't do too much on him.
Blaze used another Ember attack and it defeated Chespie.
"Chespie!" Shauna yelled. Shauna held her Chespin, and it suddenly woke up, but it was a tad bit injured. Shauna sighed. "I'm glad your okay." She said hugging Chespie.
"I-I'm sorry, Shauna." Summer said looking down. Shauna gave a small smile and went to Summer.
"Hey its ok, Chespie will be fine." Shauna said. Summer smiled and gave a sigh of relief. Blaze went to Summer and the later petted her Pokemon. "Hey, Summer! That was a great battle! Let's battle next time, okay." Shauna said. Summer smiled and nodded running home.
Calem got up and started walking north. "I'll be on Route 2. Once you give the letter to your mom, meet me there." He said giving a wink. Summer smiled and blushed at the boy.
Blaze gave a smirk at Summer as they walked back home. Once they were home, Summer gave the letter to her mom.
"Honey! Your going on your journey!" She yelled, a smile on her face showing she was happy for her.
"Y-Yes." Summer said smiling.
Grace smiled and cheered. "I have to get you ready." She then quickly ran upstairs to prepare her daughter's bag. Blaze was surprised with Summer's mom, but chuckled as well.
Grace came back downstairs with her daughter's bag fully packed. "Here I got you everything for your trip." Grace said.
"T-Thanks. Well bye mom." Summer said with a small smile.
Grace smiled. "Bye Summer, have a safe trip, and be careful." Grace then closed the door, Summer smiled and walked away from her house slowly. Once they left the house, Summer and Blaze looked at Route 1 and Aquacorde Town up ahead.
"Ready Blaze?" Summer asked.
"Ready." He replied.
"Let's go." Summer and Blaze took their fist steps to start their journey.
