Ash: The Fugitive
Chapter 0: Prologue
Insane Magikarp 999
I watched as my two daughters and my son danced and played out in the yard with Mom. My beautiful wife was all dressed up and ready to go. We were going to have the perfect evening. Our 3rd Anniversary was going to be celebrated at our favorite restaurant and after that we were planning on some quality time together. None of it happened…
We arrived at the restaurant and sat down at our table (thank goodness we had reservations!) Misty and I ordered and soon after our meals were brought to us, my cell phone rang.
"Please don't be them!" I said desperately to myself.
I looked at the caller ID. It was them all right, the Elite Four.
"Hello? Uh-huh? Yeah. All right all be down immediately."
I closed the phone and looked up. Misty's eyes became watery with sorrow. I hated to see her like this. This beautiful angel, separated with the one man she loved on her anniversary.
"Misty I have to go. It's the…"
"Just go!" she said in a voice I hated to hear from her. That voice that might say she hates me and everything I am.
"I'm sorry. Misty, I'll make it up to you I promise."
I was speechless. Not on our anniversary! We were fighting, on the perfect night.
I just walked away in sorrow, predicting what would happen when I got home. My prediction was far off. Very far off…
It was a complete waste of time. Hearing strategies, planning our fights, and preparing for worst case scenarios. I can't believe I gave up the night with the most wonderful person in my life, to hear all that bull-shit. I was pissed. When I got home I looked for Misty hoping I could cheer her up. I found her in the room, beaten and bloody, scared out of her mind.
I held her in my arms, only for a short time. She was free of my grip, and was now looking at me with horror and anger in her eyes.
"YOU DIRTY BASTARD! THEY'RE COMING! THE POLICE ARE ON THIS WAY TO ARREST YOU FOR YOUR SICK ACTS YOU SON OF A BITCH!!!"
"Misty!? What the hell are you talking about!?"
The police busted down the front door and shoved me down to the ground. They hand-cuffed me and picked me up.
"Ash Ketchum, you are under arrest!"
