Prologue: Off to Pallet Town
Come on.. We should be there by now.. Eva thought as she was looking down at the ground. "Storm, I think you should fly lower now. I don't think we have much further, so we must make sure we don't miss it."
"Swellow!" The Pokémon nodded, and flew low enough that the clouds weren't blocking their sight anymore. And really, as soon as he did, Eva could see the first houses of Pallet Town. She was happy for that, as Storm was getting pretty tired - after all, it's not such an easy task to fly all the way from Petalburg to Pallet, especially if you have to carry someone on your back and only have one stop before the end, like Storm did.
"Swee?" Storm asked. Eva looked at him.
"Just a bit further.. Here. I think you could land there, by these trees. So we won't drag too much attention." Storm nodded, and flew towards the ground. When they landed and Eva stepped on the ground, she opened her bag and took out a bowl and a can of Pokémon food. She opened the can and put the food in the bowl.
"Here you go, Storm. You really deserve it. Thanks for the flight."
"Swee!" Storm said happily as he began eating the food. Eva pat him. When he ate all of the food, she took out a PokéBall.
"You can rest now." She returned the Swellow in his pokéball, and then put the bowl and the empty can back in her bag. She looked around and took a deep breath. So, this is Pallet Town. Seems like a nice place. So.. According to the guide, this is where the trainers here start out, and the professor's name is Professor Oak. But I don't think I'll go there today, I should take a rest first.. But where? she thought as she looked around. Well, guess I'll have to ask someone here. So she put her bag on her back, and walked towards the town.
"Thank you very much for letting me stay here, Mrs. Ketchum!" Eva said happily as she looked around the room she was given to sleep in.
"Oh, that's no problem. It will be nice to have kids in this house again." Eva secretly rolled her eyes when she was called a 'kid', but decided not to complain about it. After all, this was the best place she could get.
"Mhm.. And you know, your son's my idol*. And I want to take on a journey just like he did!"
"Really? That's sweet!" Delia complimented. "Well, I guess I should let you pack off now. See you tomorrow!" She smiled, and then she left the room.
Eva sat on the bed. What a nice woman.. And she is Ash's mother! I really got lucky for being able to stay here for the night.. But tomorrow.. Tomorrow comes the most important day of my life. Tomorrow I set on a journey to become the greatest Pokémon trainer there ever was! Better even than Ash!
With those thoughts she changed to her pajamas and got in the bed. It was still day outside, though the sun would set in about two or three hours. But, Eva was very tired, and she didn't see any reason to stay awake any longer. Plus, she didn't want to be late.
"Tomorrow" she whispered to herself as she slowly fell asleep.
*by 'idol' I meant it as someone she looks up to and who she wants to be like.
