Get to Class


Misty Waterflower groggily opened her eyesas her phone trilled an annoying tune; she glanced at the clock, 6:00a.m. Who was calling this early- before her alarm clock even went off? It was Dawn. Dear Arceus. Misty picked up her phone and barked, "What could possibly the emergency that you felt the need to call me a half an hour before I need to get up, Dawn?"

"Oh Misty, thank goodness you picked up! I'm in such a pinch!" Dawn whined and Misty rolled her eyes.

"And what would that be?" Misty asked in a patronizing voice.

"I have no idea whether to wear my red wedges or white ones!" It took a minute for Misty to comprehend what Dawn had just said and another minute for Misty to muster all the spite she had in her to yell, "DAWN ARE YOU SERIOUSLY SAYING YOU CALLED ME AT SIX IN THE MORNING FOR FASHION TIPS!?"

"….Maybe?" Dawn squeaked at her friend.

"GOODBYE DAWN. You can figure it out! Or call May!" Misty huffed and then smirked as she put May on the chopping block; she deserved it, May barely helped on a project they had just done because she was too busy flirting with Drew. Sometimes Dawn reminded Misty exactly of her sisters and it was just too much for one person to handle. After being rudely awakened, Misty decided to get up and start her day by brushing her teeth and hair and pulling on her blue shorts and yellow tank top.

"Like, Misty!" Daisy cried from behind her door and Misty groaned.

"What Daisy?"

"Have you like, seen where my eye shadow went?"

"Why on Earth would I know where your eye shadow is?"

"I don't know maybe you, like, used it?"

"Really, you thought I'd use that?" Misty questioned sarcastically.

"Well, maybe but-"

"Go ask Violet, geez Daisy!" Misty shouted and continued getting her backpack ready for school, ignoring Daisy's sigh of distress. She finally ventured downstairs with Togetic floating with her and went over to the cupboard where cereal was and then to where the Pokémon food was. She and Togetic finished quickly and with a brief call goodbye to her three ditzy sisters Misty hopped in her car, heading towards her High School. She reached the school in a matter of ten minutes and parked in her usual spot between Iris's car and May's. May had just got there as well and so Misty waited for her to get out of her car. May had a bit of a scowl on her face as she slammed her door.

"Morning sunshine!" Misty greeted her cheerfully.

"Yeah, yeah. Do you know Dawn called me at practically six this morning?" May huffed.

"Correction, she called me at six in the morning and called you after I told her to go pester you."

"Why'd you do that!" May questioned sounding very annoyed.

"Well, if I do recall correctly, a certain girl named May Maple decided not to help a girl named Misty Waterflower with a project they both had to work on so said girl May, could flirt with a certain boy named Drew." Misty finished, crossing her arms. May flushed red and quickly said, "I said I was sorry! And I was not flirting with him! I get it I deserved it!"

"There you go!" Misty laughed and they continued through the front doors of the school and head towards their lockers. A tall boy with brown, spiky hair approached them as they rounded the corner.

"Hey Brock!" Misty called to one of her best friends.

"Hey guys, what's new?" The ever cheery, aspiring Pokémon Breeder questioned.

"Oh nothing really, we both just were rudely awakened by the wrath of Dawn and her fashion distresses." May answered back sarcastically.

"Speak of the devil." Misty said as a blue haired girl flitted down the hallway towards them and the three of them groaned. Don't get them wrong, Dawn was their friend, however, she was a handful.

"Hey guys! How do I look?" Dawn asked strutting in a circle.

"Ooh you picked the white wedges?" May made a face and insulted her shoes on purpose just to get a rise out of Dawn.

"Wha-what? What do you mean?" And in a second Dawn was crying waterfalls(anime style.). They all laughed and Dawn quickly stopped and looked at them in confusion.

"Kidding, Dawn, kidding!" May giggled and Dawn frowned at them.

"Whatever, I look fantastic."

"You better, there's Paul." Misty said trying not to break her straight face.

"Huh, where?!" Dawn twirled around, fixing her skirt.

"Ha! You do like him!" May cried triumphantly.

"No!" Dawn retorted knowing she had been caught in the act and stormed off towards her locker.

"Alright, I've got to get to class so I'll see you," she nodded to May, "in English and you," she turned to Brock, "in science. Hey, wait Brock, have you seen Ash?"

"Ooh!" Brock cooed at Misty, "Why do you want to know?" He waggled his eyebrows and Misty whacked him on the head.

"Shut up, Brock! We have a project in Battle Training and we're partners!" Upon saying that Brock 'ooh-ed' again earning himself a whack upside the head from Misty yet again. Obviously not getting anywhere with Brock, Misty stomped off around the corner towards her locker and then affectively bumped into someone also rounding the corner.

"Oof!" Misty dropped her books on the floor, about to release her rage on whoever was dumb enough to not be looking where they were going around the corner.

"Watch-" She was cut off by recognition of messy black hair under a red and white hat.

"Hey you, I was looking for you Mist!" Ash Ketchum cheerfully greeted her with his goofy smile.

"Ketchum!" She said in mock anger, "Watch where you're going!" She hoped he didn't see the blooming blush forming across her face. Ash just laughed and picked up her books that were mixed with his. Pikachu 'chu-ed' a hello to Togetic and the Pokémon floating next to Misty waved it's small, cream colored arms in greeting.

"There ya go." Ash stood back up, handing Misty her books and holding his at his side and leant against the wall. "So, what's up?" Misty giggled and answered.

"I don't know you said you were looking for me?"

"Oh yeah…" Ash blushed and scratched the back of his head in embarrassment and then opened his mouth to say something just as the bell rang for the start of class.

"Oh no! I'm late, we need to go to class Ash!" Misty said, her eyes widening in realization.

"Oh, y-yeah, alright see you, Mist!" Ash called after her and Misty waved back at him.

"Talk to you later, Ketchum!" Misty hollered back, she blushed furiously at his nickname for her. What had he wanted to say to her?
