The storm showed no sign of letting up. Its cold winds seeped through the open window in the hall way and crept up our necks. Its tears pouring into Rustboro city like a the city was its cup, almost filled to the brim with rain. I watched as Jason played in the rain, his first time feeling the cold, wet substance.
"Jason, come inside now." I told him. He stopped hopping and dancing in the rain and shot a wide eyed look at me. Something told me that he associated the word "come" with something bad. I never knew why. He always gave me that look when I told him to come. He hopped towards me and looked at my black sneakers, then he looked up at me. I assumed he wondered that my feet looked different than his or Violet's when she took her sneakers off. I created another warm towel with electricity and dried off his damp, whie fur. He stared at my feet again for some reason. I guessed he wanted to see them. I took my sneakers off. It felt good because I have not been bare foot since my body assumed this form. Jason nipped my feet with his fingers and hopped around on them, testing them with his feet. He looked at me and held his arms up towards me.
I picked him up held carried him into the room where Sato, Violet and I slept in since my tent was swept away by the storm. Violet and Sato slept most of the time since there was nothing else to do but talk to each other. The only one that found things to do for entertainment was Jason. He was always playing around in the drawers or in mine or Violet's hair. He even coaxes Sato to play with him sometimes.
"Ugh." Violet groaned. "When's this storm gonna settle down? It's starting to get me in a gloomy mood."
"Soon, Vi." I told her. "It has been a day since it started, if it doesn't stop soon, it will go on for a week. That's what I think anyway.
"Whatever. I'm gonna go take a bath or something. That'll be more fun than sitting here and doningnothing all day."
Sato let out a soft yawn as she slowly oped her eyes, after her long nap.
"You okay, Sato?" If you're hungry I could get you something."
"That's so sweet of you, thanks. Don't worry about me." She said in her sweetest, most soothing voice. "I don't eat that much."
"In that case, would you tell me more about yourself?" I asked.
"I was about to ask you the same thing."
"Oh, unfortunately, I do not have anything to talk about. Nothing has happened in my life before I got to this city."
I sat down next to her on the bed. She gave me a smile.
"Well, that's okay,"
"So what did you want did you want to say?" I asked.
I'm not what you would call a very happy person."
"Well, my parents are the problem. They have neglected me for so long now. I have had to fend for myself for all this time. A few weeks ago, they threw me out for days on end without any help at all. Yes it has made me into a more responsible person but I feel like they don't even love me. I think they really hate my existence."
"Really?" I said. "Then why do you alway seem in a good mood?"
"Huh? Oh. Well..." She started sheepishly. "I- it's really because I'm around you. When I'm around you, I get this sinister and odd vibe that... It makes me feel like I'm melting in happiness. Everyone else thinks I feel this way because you saved me from those boys, but it's not just that. I feel a connection with you, Ryan. I- I love you..."
"Love you too, Sato."
I lie down next to her and closed my eyes, trying to fall asleep. Jason bounded up from the floor and nestled himself in between us.Even as I slept, I could still hear the faint pitter patter of the sky's tears on the roof. I still felt Sato clinging to me in fear whenever the sky bellowed out her load cry. I opened my eyes. I couldn't bare to sleep anymore.
Violet came out of the other room with nothing but a white towel over her, her hair dripping wet.
"Honestly, that felt so damn refreshing!" She exclaimed.
I turned to Sato who also, couldn't sleep anymore either. "This storm is tiring, but it doesn't provide a quiet place to sleep either." I said.
"I hear you, Ryan." Violet answered while putting her clothes on again. "Can't you control it or something? I don't know, shoot lightning into the clouds and blow them up."
"Thay won't work, I know it."
"Dammit, that's just great. Waiting in here longer will make me take baths until the storm stops, and you two will end up joining me. EspeciallyyouRyan."
"Not in nine years, Violet. Remeber that."
"Ah come on, Ry-Ry." She pouted
Violet was still moody since I wouldn't act towards her in sexual ways. I enjoyed seeing her pout like there wouldn't a tomorrow for a long time.
Outside, Elec was having a boy in his group, heal is wound. His name was Alexander, he had no last last because he didn't know where he came from.
"Elec, have you gone mad?" He said angrily with his odd accent. "You obviously can't beat him, and yet you still try."
"Shut up," Elec yelled, the pain in his chest making him scream. "I'm no coward like you."
"You only fight for revenge. Not for a better reason, this makes you a fool. I only follow you around because the I want to see when Violet will slap you next, or who will make you fall forever. I care not about your life, but I heal your wounds just so you can get pummeled again."
"Grrr, after I'm done with Sparker, we'll see who's the one getting pummeled."
"Oh yes, I'm sure, Elec, but be warned, you haven't see what I could do... Yet. No matter though, none of my skills are going to be wasted on you anyway."
