Disclaimer: If you don't know that I don't own Pokémon by now then you should get your head examined. I do not and never will own Pokémon. And I don't own The Pokémontower. The Pokémontower is owned by the Jolt Master. I use The Pokémontower as a name of a business in this part so please don't sue me Jolt. I don't have anything but this fic. But enough of that, lets get on with this story. This story was written in February 2004.

Ash and Misty have been walking up on deck for a couple of hours now. In that time, they almost got into a couple more fights but luckily Pikachu was there to stop them before they went too far.

ggggrrrr Ash's stomach said to him.

"Oh man, I'm hungry. Where are the restaurants around here," Ash said holding his side.

"I think we passed one about ten minutes ago. Lets go back and see," Misty said.

Ash, Misty and Pikachu turned around and started walking towards where Misty thought she had seen a restaurant. They were walking for about five minutes when Ash smelled something.

"Hey what smells so good?" Ash asked.

Misty took a sniff and said, "Whatever it is it smells good enough to eat."

"Where is it coming from?"

"Through that door over there I think," Misty said and pointed to an open door a few feet away to their right.

"Is this the restaurant you were talking about Misty?"

"I don't think so. I was sure that I had seen one farther down the deck."

"Well a restaurant is a restaurant. Lets try it," Ash suggested.

No sooner had Ash and Misty walked in had someone come up and said, "I'm sorry sir, but to eat here you will have to put your Pikachu in its Pokéball."

"What! Why?" Ash asked.

"We don't allow Pokémon in here unless they are in their Pokéballs because this is a restaurant for people, not for Pokémon."

"Are you kidding me?"

"That's our policy. And if you ask me, I don't think it's a big problem. Just put it in its Pokéball and you can eat here."

"Pi pi kachu, pi?" Pikachu asked his trainer.

"Don't worry Pikachu. I won't force you into a Pokéball if you don't want to." Ash then turned back to the guy and said, "Well if that's your policy, then I'll be going." Then Ash turned around and started to leave.

With Ash leaving, Misty didn't want to stay here and eat alone so she turned around and said, "Wait up Ash!"

Once they were out of sight Ash said, "Can you believe that guy Misty? I don't know what's the matter with Pikachu being out of its Pokéball."

"Don't get mad Ash. Some people just don't like Pokémon that much. And anyway it doesn't matter. I'm positive that there's another restaurant just ahead," Misty said.

And Misty was right. Within another five minutes Ash, Misty and Pikachu were outside of a restaurant ready to go in. When they went in they were promptly welcomed by one of the employees.

"Welcome to The Pokémon Tower. I'm Sean. How may I help you?"

Before Ash or Misty could open thier mouths to answer, Sean said, "Oh, are both of you Pokémon trainers?"

"Yes," Ash and Misty said in unison.

"Then do I have an offer you'll like. Here at The Pokémon Tower, if you have a Corsola you can eat for free. Would either of you have one?"

"It just so happens I have a Corsola. In fact I'm gonna use it in the competition tomorrow."

"Do you have it with you?" Sean said excited.

"Well no."

"You don't..." Sean said disappointed.

"But it's down in my room. Can you wait ten minutes for me to run and get it?"

"Sure, we're not closing any time soon especially if you have a Corsola."

"Then lets go Ash," Misty said.

"You go on alone Misty. I'm too hungry to run all the way down to the room and back. Pikachu and I will wait here for you to come back."

"Okay. I'll see you in ten minutes," and Misty started to take off down the deck at a fast walk.

Ten seconds later Ash remembered that Misty didn't have a room keycard. Ash went outside the restaurant and yelled,

"Miiiiiiiiissssssstyyyyyyyyyyy!!!!!" but it was too late. Misty was too far down the deck to hear him.

"Oh, man. I didn't want to have to go," Ash said to himself.

'Misty's gonna be mad at me unless I catch up with her. And I can't risk her getting really mad. If that happens Officer Jenny will disqualify us,' Ash thought to himself.

With no other choice, Ash started to run with Pikachu right next to him. While he was running Ash thought of how he could get to room 183 faster than Misty and then it hit him. Misty only knew one way to the room from around here but Ash had been out here earlier with Natalie so Ash knew a much quicker way. He would get there in half the time it would take Misty. Ash was just passing the swimming pools now so he slowed down to a fast walk.

Just as Ash thought, he got to room 183 in a couple of minutes and there was no sign of Misty yet. Not wanting to stand, Ash got out the keycard and went inside his room to sit down and wait for Misty to arrive. Ash thought that he should leave the door open so Misty would know that he was already here.

Ash smelled a little bad because of his run so he thought he should put on some deoderant. The problem was was that it was in his disorganized backpack, but he knew that he should smell good if he was going to be in a restaurant with Misty so he went over to his backpack and started looking around for it.

Within another minute, Misty was in the hallway leading to room 183. When she was within a few steps she noticed that the door of the room was open.

'Now that's really strange,' Misty thought. 'Why would the door be open? Unless there's someone in there trying to steal something.'

Misty walked a little forward and heard someone in the room looking for something. Misty was about to go in there to stop whoever it was but then she remembered that she didn't have any Pokémon with her and this person might. Misty thought about this for a few seconds and then thought of Officer Jenny. Without a moment to lose, Misty started to walk down the hallway down to the elevators.

Meanwhile in room 183 Ash was still looking for his deoderant. Finally after half the stuff was out he found the deoderant and started to put it on. After he was done he looked at the clock by the bed and it read 4:38.

'That's weird," Ash thought. 'Misty should have been here by now. I wonder what's keeping her.'

Meanwhile, Misty had just gotten down to the brig where Officer Jenny was.

"," Misty tried to say but she was all out of breath from running to the brig.

"Misty, calm down. What are you trying to say?" Jenny asked.

"I think that there's someone in my room trying to steal something. I walked down there and saw that the door was open and I heard someone in there looking around for something."

"Well then lets go!" Jenny said excited.

In room 183, Ash put back all his stuff into his backpack and looked at the clock it read 4:42. Then Ash said to Pikachu,

"Man Pikachu, I'm starting to get worried. Do you think anything happened to Misty?"

"Pi ka chu pi ka chu."

"Do you think we should go out and look for her?"


"Wait Pikachu. What if she comes back here? I should leave a note."

Ash quickly looked around for some paper and saw a notepad with a pencil on it. He walked over and started to write:

"Dear Misty, I have gone out to look for you because you're not here yet and I'm worried about you. Right now it's 4:43. Signed, Ash. P.S: I know it's short, but I was in a hurry."

"Come on Pikachu," Ash said as he left the room. Before he left, Ash turned back and closed and locked the door.

Ash had just gotten into one of the elevators to go back up on deck when Misty and Officer Jenny were just getting off another one of them. They were almost to the room when Jenny said,

"Misty, stand back. He might still be in there."

Then Jenny took out her Pokéball and called out her Growlithe. Jenny had a master key so she used it to unlock the door. With Growlithe leading her, Jenny went into the room and was surprized to find everything so neat.

"There's no one in here anymore! You can come in Misty," Jenny yelled.

When she went inside the room Misty was also surprized to find everything in the same place as they had left it.

"I swear Officer Jenny. Someone was in here."

"It's okay Misty; I believe you," Jenny said and turned to Growlithe.

"Growlithe, do you smell anybody else who was in this room recently?" Jenny asked it.

Growlithe took a few sniffs.

"Growl growlithe!" it said as it nodded its head.

"Can you tell which way he went?" Jenny asked.

When Jenny said this Growlithe started to run in the direction of Ash's scent.

"Lets follow it!" Jenny said to Misty. With Misty and Jenny leaving so fast, they didn't even see Ash's note before they left the room. Right before they left, Jenny closed and locked the door and then followed Growlithe to the elevators.

Ash and Pikachu were up on deck now still looking around for Misty with no such luck. Ash went over to a man and asked,

"Excuse me. Have you seen a girl with red hair about my age around here recently?"

"No I'm sorry, I havn't. Why are you looking for her?"

"Because we were supposed to meet up a little while ago, but she didn't show up and I'm worried about her."

"Well don't worry. Were on a ship and she can't have gotten far. If I see her I'll be sure to come and find you. What room are you staying in?"

"Room 183 and thank you."


Ash kept on walking along looking for people that could help him find Misty until he heard some growling behind him.

"Growl growlithe! Grrr. Grrr," Ash heard behind him and before he could turn around the Growlithe pounced on him stopping Ash in his tracks.

"Good work Growlithe. Now lets see who you are," Jenny said as she pulled Ash up from Growlithe.

"Ash! But how Officer Jenny!" Misty yelled.

"I don't know. Gorwlithe could you have been wrong about the scent?" Jenny asked her Pokémon.

Growlithe went up to Ash and sniffed him and then turned to Jenny and shook its head at its trainer.

"Hmmm..." Jenny said.

"Uh...excuse me. What is going on!" Ash yelled.

"Ash, when I went to my room to get my Corsola for the restaurant, the door was open and I heard someone in there looking around."

"Did you see who it was?" Ash asked.


"Misty, Misty, Misty," Ash said while shaking his head. "That was me. I had went down to our room a faster way so I could beat you there."


"Because you had forgot this," Ash said then reached in his back pocket and pulled out the keycard. "I knew that if you went back to our room and you weren't able to get in, you would be mad at me for not remembering to give you the keycard. And if you got mad I couldn't take the chance of you getting really mad cause then you would have not only gotten yourself disqualified from the compotition but me aswell."

"But why did you leave the door open?" Jenny asked.

"Well I was tired from my run getting to the room before Misty so I went into the room to sit down. I left it open because I thought if Misty came by and she remembered that she didn't have a keycard, she wouldn't have even tried to open the door, thinking it was locked, because she would be too mad at me to try the door."

"But I heard someone in the room looking around for something," Misty stated.

"That was me looking in my backpack for some deoderant because I smelled bad from my run to the room. My backpack is very unorganized so Misty could have thought that someone was looking around for something, like money or Pokémon."

"Well that's enough evidence for me. This case is closed. Misty, Ash, I wish you two both luck in the competition tomorrow. Until then," Jenny said then recalled her Growlithe and left Misty and Ash to be alone, well except for Pikachu that is.

"Well now that that's over with, how about I go get my Corsola in our room."

"How about we go together Misty."

"Yeah, your right. No need to do this again."

Ash, Misty and Pikachu all went together down to room 183 and got Misty's Lureball that had her Corsola in it. After Misty got her Corsola they were about to leave when something by the bed caught her eye. She walked over to the bed, took up Ash's note and read it aloud.

"Dear Misty, I have gone out to look for you because you're not here yet and I'm worried about you. Right now it's 4:43. Signed, Ash. P.S: I know it's short, but I was in a hurry."

"Oh Ash that's sweet. You were really worried about me."

Ash began to blush and said, "I was just worried that you would get too mad and get me disqualified."

"Then why are you blushing?"

Ash was blushing even harder now and yelled, "I'm not blushing! Excuse me I have to go to the bathroom." Ash went into the bathroom and locked the door. He turned on the water in the sink and began to wash his face with the cool water. Then he dried himself off with a towel and looked into the mirror. Thankfully he wasn't blushing anymore.

Ash thought, 'Does she know that I love her now? I hope not. I'm not ready for this.'

Meanwhile outside of the bathroom in room 183 Misty thought, 'I wonder,' then she read over Ash's note again in her mind. '...I'm worried about you...'

'Could he actually love me?' Misty thought some more. 'Maybe I'll find out later.'

Ash finally came out of the bathroom ready to face whatever Misty was to say to him. But Misty just said,

"If your done in the bathroom then lets go get some free food."

Ash was stunned at what Misty said. He was sure that she knew now that he loved her. All Ash could say was,

"Okay. Yeah. Lets go get some free food!"
