A Pokemon Fanfic: A Pokemon Fanfic: Chapter Four (The Kidnapping)

by Bulba the Curious

Bulba the Curious When Lawrence mysteriously disappears, it looks like it's time for a rescue mission. And a new friend may be coming along for the ride.
Scene 10

After a quick stop by the pokemon center, the boys sat on a nearby bench, contemplating what to do.

"We could go back and try again," suggested Norman.

"No," replied Lawrence. "I doubt we could do any better."

"We could train, and then go back," Norman suggested again.

"Maybe. But where would we train?" Lawrence wondered.

"In the forest," Norman said, like it was obvious. At the word forest, Lawrence opened his eyes wide.

"No! No, no, no..." Norman stopped Lawrence's rant before he finished.

"You're going to start sounding like Roxanne. Come on, let's go." The boys walked back in the direction of the forest. They passed by the flower shop and saw a note on the door. Curious, the boys investigated. The note read "Gone out for more supplies: Be back at 10:00".

"Ten o'clock. That's right now," Lawrence said. "I wonder where Gloria is." Suddenly, the boys heard a voice behind them. They whipped around to see Gloria on a bike.

"Hello, boys!" she called. "Back for more herbs?"

"No!" Norman called back. Gloria walked her bike up to them.

"So what are you doing here?" she asked.

"We're going into the forest to train," replied Norman. "Do you want to come?"

"I have to keep working. I told you about my strict mother, right?"

"That's okay. But when we come out, we might need some natural medicine."

"Good luck, boys!" Gloria called as they entered the forest. Inside, Lawrence immediately seemed wary. He looked around nervously, but the forest seemed empty.

"Where are all the pokemon?" wondered Norman. Not a flutter of a wing, nor a call of a bird was heard. Suddenly, there was a rustle in the bushes. A small head peaked out, followed by a long neck. Before the whole pokemon was revealed, Lawrence noticed it and screamed. The pokemon dashed back into the trees.

"What was that for? We need to find some pokemon!" Norman exclaimed, exasperated. He turned away from his friend, defiantly.

"How many times do I have to tell you!" Lawrence said from behind Norman. "I'm afraid of -" His voice was cut off.

"That's not funny, Lawrence. What are you afraid of?" After a few seconds, Lawrence had not answered. "Lawrence?" Norman turned around, and nobody was there. Nobody except for the flygon. "Did Lawrence scare you? Or did you scare Lawrence?" Norman asked the Flygon. Flygon seemed in no mood to talk, however. It urgently dragged Norman out of the forest.

"What? What are you doing? This is no time for games! Lawrence is missing!" Norman tried to get flygon to stop, but it was too strong. By that time, they were in front of Gloria's shop. Voices could be heard from inside.

"Okay brat, talk!"

"Yah, why are you trying to beat the league?"

"I'm just a trainer! Isn't that what trainers are supposed to do?"

"That voice was Lawrence's!" Norman whispered to flygon. He quickly realized that flygon couldn't understand him, but kept talking to it anyways.

"Let us go! This boy is innocent!"

"That was Gloria!" Norman whispered again. "Whoever those people in there are, they've got Lawrence and Gloria!"

Norman was lying against the door, trying to listen to the rest of the voices. There was silence for a few seconds, then the someone tried to open the door. It wouldn't open, of course, but Norman got out of the way. He hid behind a large plant, and flygon followed him. The door flew open, and a man came out, dragging Gloria and Lawrence, who were tied up and gagged, behind him. A woman followed them all. The mysterious couple were both dressed in the same dark red outfit. Norman couldn't see their faces, but saw Lawrence's clearly. Lawrence was about to scream in panic, but Norman a finger to his lips. Lawrence was silent.

Scene 11

A few minutes later, the mysterious duo had gone out of sight. Norman and flygon came out of their hiding place.

"Those people went towards Rustboro. I wonder what havoc they could cause there? Flygon, do you want to come with me?" Norman asked the pokemon. Flygon looked at Norman for a second, then zipped off towards Rustboro. "Wait for me! Norman called.

The two heroes arrived in Rustboro soon after their departure from the Flower Shop, and saw the familiar suits of the goons who had kidnapped Lawrence and Gloria. They were chatting in front of the Rustboro Gym. Suddenly, the man looked toward Norman and flygon for a brief second, then turned away. He had a big M emblazoned on his outfit and his face looked familiar.

"Flygon, I saw his face. I think I've seen him before." Norman didn't even notice that Flygon couldn't understand him. They seemed to have a close relationship already.

Norman then had his second great realization. The man was the one who had battled him and Lawrence with Roxanne!

The two grunts entered the gym. "We have to follow them!" In preparation, Norman got cleffa and Pooch out of their pokeballs. "Cleffa, will I ever find a good nickname for you?" he wondered aloud.

The strangest quartet ever to exist trooped towards the gym. They arrived at the door, and halted. A sign posted read "Gym Closed Until Further Notice". "Should I open it?" Norman said to no one in particular. In the end, flygon was the only one brave enough to open the door.

None of the typical trainers were there. Only three other people were present. The man and woman in the red outfits, and Roxanne. They were at the back of the gym talking amongst themselves, and didn't notice when the three pokemon and Norman entered. They snuck as quietly as possible towards the mischievous trio, but the many rocks and pebbles littering the gym floor made it hard. The foursome got close enough to hear snippets of the conversation.

"This boy is trying to beat the league," the man said to Roxanne. "The woman was a witness, so we brought her, too."

"Okay," Roxanne replied. "I'll take the runt to Maxie. You take the woman back where you found her, and if she talks...wait, who's that?" Roxanne was looking right at Norman.

"It's that kid that we battled earlier!" the man replied. "Get him!" He and the woman rushed up to Norman. They each sent out a geodude.

"Flygon, you can take 'em! Wing attack!" Flygon whipped up a small tornado with its wings. The tornado picked the geodudes up into the air and smashed them together. They were knocked out. Each grunt cradled their pokemon in their arms, then ran out the door. "Yes!" said Norman, victorious. He then looked up at Roxanne.

"You couldn't even beat me when I was distracted, and with your friend!" Roxanne gestured towards Lawrence, who was in the corner, still tied up, along with Gloria.

"I don't plan to battle you," replied Lawrence. "Flygon, pick up Gloria and bring her back here!"

Faster than Roxanne could react, Flygon dashed to Gloria, picked her up by the ropes, and flew back to Norman.

"That's okay. I didn't want her anyways," Roxanne seemed bothered, though. Lawrence had a worried look on his face. "I guess you've figured it out by now, that I'm in league with team Magma. I have a good reason, though. I'll tell you all about when I beat you and your friend from the flower shop. Then I'll take you to Maxie, too!"

"Oh, brother," moaned Norman.
