Pokémon: Touko's Adventures

By Ailie Ramsay

Mystery / Adventure

Captured

The last time I saw Touko was when I left her in the throne room of my castle, promising that we would see each other again. I've never really understood the concept of promises so I have ever rarely made them, but I should have known better that I couldn't keep my promise to her.


The room was pitch black and dreary, not a single ounce of light even passed through the gaps under the steel door.

A boy sat in the corner, his dirty green hair fell over his eyes. Tight, silver bands itching and bruising his skin around his wrist and thick chains connected them to the wall behind his back.

He became too malnourished to cause a struggle anymore like he did in his earlier days in the underground dungeon, and the lack of oxygen also put him at a disadvantage to think up an escape plan.

He finally became aware of the other man in the room, who broke into a menacingly evil laugh that could – in his opinion – cut through his heart.

He shivered, for he knew if there was one person that could truly hurt him; it would be his father.

"So…The young king has finally broken." Ghetsis sneered, "And here I thought that I helped make the perfect heir for the royal family. Your too kind and gentle towards every living thing, you certainly didn't get that from me, N." He walked over to the young boy and grabbed hold of his chin so he could get a better look N's face.

N reverts his gaze away from Ghetsis. "Your only problem there is that you never made me, you never made Anthea or Concordia. You brought us up to be like you, you can never take away our virtues or our beliefs even if they are different from yours." His voice was a little deeper and croaky since he hadn't used it in so long, and he gave a frighteningly beautiful but crooked smile. "Even if we go down in this pointless war you have made, it will be Touko that will stand against you. She will beat you like she did before and…you will stay down."

Ghetsis frowned. "You have the guts to go against me, my son." He then smiled. "But your little girlfriend won't be able to stop me this time."

"What exactly have you got up your sleeves that could possibly help you achieve liberating Pokémon from people?"

"That's the thing. My goal is not to liberate Pokémon from people, but to liberate the world from people. You my dear son are going to be the main subject to let this happen." N's eyes widen just as Ghetsis flips a switch on the wall, electrical green power vibrating through the chains. N arched his back in exhilarating pain as he screeched through his gritted teeth.

"Our project as a family has been abolished because of that little girlfriend of yours, my son. You have listened to her heart and her desire to stay with Pokémon in the world." Ghetsis shouted over the noise. "You have cost us dearly. So…think of this as punishment for your treachery."

N's eyes turn a ghastly yellow colour, and his screaming is caught in his throat.

Giuliana Cassetta: My face is full of tears, I never cried like now with a book or even a movie. I loved every single chapter. I truly don't know what to say, I'm out of words and my eyes hurt from crying. Such an bittersweet story, it's so wonderful. One of my favorites for sure. Keep it up!

CookieMonster911: The story overall was an adventure that is appealing to any age. The way the characters develop adds a more human characteristic to the novel.

Jessica Esa: With a tantalising end to the first chapter, the authour has given us a treat and a welcome addition to the fantasy adventure genre. To limit it to just such would be an injustice however, as this novel clearly draws on elements of historical fiction, fairy tale and horror. Simply, there's someth...

aaron10905: This is undoubtedly one of the best books written on here. I actually unistalled this app until someone told me about this story. I came back not expecting much, just to be drawn into the story and the characters. I would buy this book in real life, as long as another was promised shortly after.

makaylakay: I love love this story! It's written incredibly and well thought-out plot! I love how it's a different twist in fantasy fiction, other then the usual vampire or werewolves.

Hawkebat: Playing both Kotor I & II and Swtor I found the story line interesting and it held me until chapter 35 Very good story and plot flow until then, very few technical errors. I felt that the main character was a bit under and over powered, as it fought for balance. The last few chapters felt too f...

Roy Jenner: I was pleased to join the action where this B-17 was limping back across the English Channel defying all odds. Obviously written by a person more than familiar with the interior of the Flying Fortresses that were familiar in the skies of Southern England during World War 2. Plenty of action here ...

Erin Crowley: The concept here is really strong, but the execution is definitely lacking. Tenses, grammar, etc are all off, with at least one or more errors per 'Page' on my phone. The writing style is almost broken- sentences move into each other awkwardly, and are filled with an excess of "filler words", lik...
