A Hopeful Wind Chapter 1: Lost Secrets Andrew stared out of his bedroom window. He had dark brown hair, faily light colored skin and hazel eyes that changed color depending on what time of day it was. He was about 4' 11", and was the average wieght for a alomst 10 year old boy. He wore a white shirt with blue and green stripeds down it . "Andrew, time for bed," his mother called. "Just a second," he called back. Tomorrow was Andrew's big day. He got to choose his pokemon that he was to travel with, Mudkip. Torchic or Treecko. He didn't know which one to choose, and, by the rule of his family he would only deside between two. This is because Proffesor Bay is Andrew's dad, so he has to let the other trainer-to-be choose his or her pokemon first. Andrew struggled to sleep, but after an hour he managed to. The morning came and Andrew looked at his clock. 6:00! "That can't be," he thought. Then he remembered that it was spring, and we just moved the time forward an hour. He came down to "eat" breakfast, but he was so nervous that he only fingred his food. The time finaly came where Andrew came to the lab and saw his father. He had jet black hair, blue eyes and the smae coloring as Andrew. But there was one person at the lab that Andrew didn't know. He was on a bike, but it looked more like a motercycle. He was extreamly overwieght, and had this "I'm thougher than you look on his face". "Ralph, come in please," Bay said. Andrew guessed that this boy's name was Ralph, and, by the looks of it the name suited him quite well. While Ralph was in with Bay another person arived. She was beautiful, as her bright blue eyes matched the color of her shirt. her long black hair extending a little past her shoulders. Andrew was stunned at this perfect girl, the right size, wieght and hight. Andrew was about to ask what her name was but her was interupted by Ralph coming out of the lab with a ball that contained a Torchic. "Well, I,m not getting a Torchic," Andrew thought. "Who are you," Bay asked in his always optomistic voise to the girl. "I am Emily she said, and I am very sorry I didn't have time to register to get my first pokemon." "It is no problem, just come with me." Emily went with Bay and soon came out with a pokemon with a Treecko in it. Andrew followed Ralph's and Emily's footsteps into the lab. "So, I guess I only have one choise left. Mudkip." Andrew inquired. "Yes." Bay answered. "So let's go Mudkip!" Andrew cried. "Let our journey begin!" "Wait, before you go I need to tell you something." "What." "First of all, please don't tell anyone this." "Okay." "So, I need to start by telling you that that mudkip you have is special. Unlike the Treecko and Torchic, this Mudkip is discolored. Instead of orange cheaks it has green ones." "So, does the color do anything special to it." "Yes, it makes your mudkip more powerful. And the other thing I need to tell you is that no one belives discolored, or shiny pokemon exist. So this is a very special discovery. That is all. Oh, here are some poke balls." Bay said as he handed Andrew the poke balls. As Andrew left the lab and was suprised to see that Emily was still there. "Andrew," she said, stutering. "I was wondering if you would join me on a pokemon journey." Andrew was delighted that a girl this beautiful would invite him, just an ordinary boy to start a journey together. "But I have my mudkip." He thought, "So mabey I'm not so ordinary." "Sure," he said.
