Shattered heart, vanished
By: Rash Ketchum
Author’s note: Hi guys, I’m back with my second fic.
Unlike the first one I have full control over this one. I’ve made some
improvements in my dialogues and storyline so I think this might be a bit
different. Oh and I’ve received some e-mails asking me where the song is from.
Well, I couldn’t find any interesting lyrics. So… I just made it up. Now on
with the story… enjoy.
Brief description: A tragic fight between Ash and
Misty in the past broke up the whole group forever. But now after five years of
separation, Ash has returned with new skills and a new ‘friend’. He doesn’t
seem to remember any of his old companions and has become completely ruthless
in battle. The others are trying to understand him but will they be able to do
it before the worst comes? Read and find out.
Note: Ash is 19, Misty is 19, Brock is 22, Damien is
21 and Blake is 23. The ages are useful in particular parts of the fanfic.
Prologue: After Ash has left, Misty is heartbroken.
After five years she has finally been able to contact Brock and tell him the
whole story. Both of them are in deep thought of what could have happened to
their old friend while the flashback goes on.
Chapter 1: Stormy Past
In the living room of a house in Pewter were a red haired
girl and a tall young man both in deep thought. They were both thinking about a
happening in the past.
“Hey guys, we’re here. Standburgh city. So
Ash, you have any strategy for this gym,” asked Brock slate one of his best
friends and a fellow companion.
“Ash come up with a strategy? Come on he’d
probably just…” went on Misty Waterflower the other best friend Ash traveled
with but was cut off by Ash.
“Hey guys, look? What’s that,” asked Ash
inattentively pointing to a crowd of people.
“Huh… looks like there’s someone there?”
said Brock as the crew went forward.
“Excuse me, but what’s going on,” asked
Misty to a girl in the back.
“Uh so you’re new here? You’re lucky ‘cause
the famous teenage celebrity Damien is giving out autographs here… NOW!”
replied the girl excited.
“Damien… oh please, these guys are only
good at giving out autographs and nothing else. Their just a bunch…” trailed
off Ash but was cut off by none other than Damien.
“Oh look, what do we have here? A lovely
young lady? Well I’ll be more than happy to give you an autograph anytime
miss…” said Damien trying to charm Misty.
“I’m… Misty… I,” muttered Misty but was
shocked when he kissed her cheek.
“You’re the brightest star in the darkest
night sky,” said Damien making Misty blush.
“Oh… umm th-thank you,” said Misty still
dazed by her action.
While all this was going on Brock and Ash
were just confused. All the other girls there were watching them with jealousy.
After talking with Damien and getting to know him better the crew said goodbye
and headed towards the Pokémon center. But Damien looked more interested in
Misty and wasn’t just gonna let her go.
At the center…
“Umm… excuse me are you Misty waterflower?”
asked nurse joy to Misty.
“Yeah, that’s me,” replied Misty confused.
“There’s someone who wants to meet you,”
said nurse joy as she went away.
“Someone wants to see me? Who could it be?”
thought Misty curious.
When she reached the hall room of the
center she saw Damien with a bouquet of flowers.
“Misty… hi, these are for you,” said Damien
handing Misty the flowers.
“Oh thank you Damien. That’s so sweet,”
said Misty accepting them.
“Misty, listen I’ve been thinking. Since
you’re new in this town, how about this evening I take you out somewhere. Just
you and me, how does that sound?” asked Damien smiling.
Misty’s heart soared with excitement. Going
out with a celebrity would be fabulous. She was going to say yes when suddenly…
“WHAT? Go out? Come on Misty, you and I
both know these celebrity guys are just a bunch of fakes. He’s probably just
playing you,” said Ash trying to get Misty to say no.
“Ash, be quiet. He’s a nice guy. And
besides why are you so worried? Don’t you want me to go out with ‘another’
guy?” asked Misty making Ash blush dark scarlet.
“Umm… no I just think that you should think
about it first. I mean you don’t think that someone like him doesn’t have a
girlfriend do you?” asked Ash trying to convince Misty.
“Well Ash, for your information I’ve
already thought about it. Sure Damien, I’ll go with you,” said Misty to Damien
“Then I’ll pick you up at seven?” asked
Damien kissing Misty’s hand and going away.
“Why do I even care? Do what you want?”
said Ash as he went away furious.
“All right. Now that Ash is jealous I can
get him to confess,” thought Misty.
The whole day Ash acted like he didn’t even
know Misty and never talked to her. This just made Misty gladder but what she didn’t
know was that her love for Ash wouldn’t be the same after that evening. Finally
Damien came at seven sharp and Misty giving him her hand as she waved goodbye
to Ash and Brock. But Ash didn’t wave back.
“Come on man, let her do this. I mean after
we’re out of here this will all be over right?” asked Brock trying to stop Ash
“I’m not sure Brock. I just can’t believe
Misty just left me like this. And to think I thought she felt the same way,”
said Ash thinking what might happen.
“Ash, she does feel the same way. She’s
just going out with the guy ‘cause he’s a star. Now, lets go and do some
training. I’m sure you’re going to need it for your next gym battle,” said
Brock as he and Ash headed outside for some training.
“Having a good time Misty?” asked Damien to
Misty at the movies.
“You bet. I never had this much fun for a
long time. Thank you Damien,” replied Misty smiling at him with shining eyes.
“I’m glad to no that my angel,” said Damien
as he kissed her cheek making her blush.
Misty was having such a good time she
didn’t even think about Ash and fell into Damien’s charm. She soon found
herself resting her head on his shoulder and finally falling in love with him.
She thought that instead of running around with Ash she should stick with
Damien who’s rich, famous and would love her dearly. After an evening of fun
and romance she and Damien reached a nice place not far from the place were Ash
and Brock were training.
“Damien look, I don’t know how to say this
but after this whole evening I think I’ve somehow fallen in love with you. I
mean I…” trailed off Misty but stopped at his touch.
“I know. Your eyes, your fragrance, your
whole personality attracts me like a passion. I love you too Misty, I love you
too,” said Damien looking at Misty with half-opened eyes.
Misty at that moment couldn’t think of
anything else being hypnotized by his dark blue eyes and charming look. She
unwarily leaned towards Damien who was constantly moving towards her.
Obviously, they met in a kiss.
“Pikachu use… huh? What’s wrong Pikachu?
Brock I think Pikachu hears something,” said Ash noticing that Pikachu was
listening to something.
“Hey Pikachu, what do you hear?” asked
Brock to the little mouse.
“Pika pi,” replied Pikachu as it ran
towards a small bush.
They soon reached the place and pushing
some leaves out of the way peeked through. What they saw surprised them,
especially Ash greatly. Both Damien and Misty were sitting on the grass with
his hands wrapped around Misty. They were talking and giggling. Though Brock
and Pikachu couldn’t, Ash could guess quite clearly what they were talking
about. And as if just to make his prediction, which would be his worst
nightmare come true, he saw what he feared of seeing his whole life. Misty…
kissing another guy with great passion. He felt senseless and incapable of
saying or doing anything. But finally he was pulled back to reality by Brock.
“Look Ash, I don’t know how to say this.
But it looks like you were right. I’m sorry, I’m just sorry,” said Brock trying
to comfort him by padding on his shoulder.
“It’s okay Brock, it’s okay. The only girl
I ever loved has left me. And now I have nothing left. Let’s go Brock, I’ve
nothing to look at,” said Ash with anger.
Ash left that place immediately without
waiting for Brock or Pikachu. But while all this had happened Misty didn’t know
