Returning Home 


Wally shrugged. All times were pretty much the same for him, and he’d rather be talking to Ruka then be fussed over by his relatives, anyway.

“Roller blades, huh? That’s really neat,” Wally replied genuinely, thinking about it for a moment. “I’d definitely like to go with you, but -” But nothing. He wasn’t going to let his illness get to him and make him scared to do things that sounded fun. Especially not with Ruka. He’d go even if he passed out during the expedition. “No, I would sometime! If that’s all right with you, anyway. I don’t want to get in the way, and you’d probably have to teach me because I’ve never roller bladed before.”


“I bet it is…” he replied softly, then shrugged. “How have I been? Kinda lonely I guess, to be honest. Brendan’s, well… you know how he is. He’s never around. And I’m too much of a scaredy-Skitty to go off into another region. Or something.”  Wally coughed slightly. “Seriously, though, I’m really glad you came back. I’m always afraid that you’re gonna… forget about me or something,” he finished, giving her a pained smile that didn’t do a very good job of hiding his feelings on the matter.

She thought he would deny again and in a case like that, she would probably insist over and over until he thought more of it. Thankfully, this wasn’t the case, yet if Ruka was surprised, she didn’t show it. She simply smiled brightly. “Great, we can go next week, how’s that? And don’t worry, it took me a bit how to roller blade too.” As she thought about it, it was somewhat reckless of her to go roller blading in Hoenn without her pads on, but she seemed to have gotten the hang of it, so there wasn’t any need. 

Her expression changed into a thoughtful face as she tried to put comprehend what happened back at home. She wasn’t surprised in the slightest about Brendan; he was a flake pretty much. “Well, if you want, you can always come to Kalos with me. I was thinking of taking on the pokemon league there too.” 

"Wally, now how could I ever forget you?" she asked, with a slight shake of her head. "I wouldn’t worry about that if I were you; you’re one of my closest friends. There’s no way I’d be able to forget you."

“A - a bad time?” Wally echoed, then shook his head. “Nah… there’s really no such thing. I never have all that much going on.” Maybe a more accurate statement would be that there was never much of a good time, either. But he had to force himself to shake off that kind of negativity. If something had happened with Ruka, he needed to be there to support her as best as he could, not waste his time moping about his own situation.

He glanced down at her feet and his smile broadened, this time more genuinely. “I didn’t know you rollerbladed,” he commented. “New hobby?” Wally felt a slight pang of jealousy, knowing he’d personally probably never be able to rollerblade due to his condition; he’d likely pass out from the adrenaline alone.

Looking back at Ruka directly, he continued, “Honestly, though, it’s not a bad time at all… you can come in, I don’t mind. I mean, I’d more than not mind, I’d be happy to have you come in. I was just surprised you showed up out of nowhere, that’s all. Usually you’re off doing… more important things.”

"Ah, that’s good," Ruka replied casually. She hadn’t thought about intruding at a bad time, but then again, for the past few months, she had forgotten that not all times were good times for visiting. "Well, I would rather nothing going on that a bad thing going on, right?" Really, it depended on the kind of "bad" presented at the situation, but she thought lightly upon the subject. Though, out of this entire thought, she was glad to see Wally hadn’t changed much. 

"Hobby? I guess you could say that," she replied, crouching down to take them off. "Actually, I was in the Kalos region for a few months now. The primary way I like to get around the place is by roller blades and pretty much a good portion of the residents there do it too. If you want, we should go sometime."  She enjoyed rollerblading compared to biking since, in her opinion, the person had more control as well as the fact she hated sitting down on anything for long periods of time. 

She smiled brightly, walking right on into the house. “Makes sense. Although, I wouldn’t say carelessly exploring Kalos is important.” She turned to look at him. “Although, I’ve got to say, it’s a pretty place.” She caught herself before going on and on about the region. “But anyway, how have you been?”

Returning Home 


It was a fortunate coincidence that Wally happened to be home at this time, too. Well, “home” for him was more specific than what Ruka probably defined it as; she considered the Hoenn region her home and Wally confined that definition to his house in Verdanturf Town. Well, his aunt and uncle’s house, anyway. Somehow he had never really been able to think of it as his own.

He wasn’t expecting any visitors, since the town was tiny and everybody knew each other. Since his return, everyone had already asked him how he was doing, and fretted over him, and treated him like he was about five years younger than he was. But he was used to that. No matter what he did to improve his own health, he’d always be a fragile glass object to others, and that was frustrating. Didn’t help that he wasn’t particularly strong anyway - he had nearly passed out just on the flight to return home. His relatives didn’t need to know that, though, because if he told them they would probably lock him in his room for the rest of his life.

Sighing, Wally flopped down on the couch, slightly exhausted by his interactions with his family, when he was roused again by a knock at the door. Before his aunt or uncle could even offer to get it, he was on his feet. If nothing else, they could at least let him answer the door on his own.

He had assumed it was a neighbor or something of that sort, so he was utterly surprised when he saw the face of his friend. “R-ruka!” he squeaked slightly. “Um - I had no idea you were going to -” Wally glanced back nervously at his relatives, now conscious more than ever of their tendency to baby and embarrass him. He was so glad to see her but almost wished she hadn’t visited. “A-ah… well… what’s new? I mean, you should - you should come in first, and then you can tell me.” Wally made an attempt to force a smile, but it wasn’t as convincing as usual.

It wasn’t worth asking her pokemon to fly all the way to Verdanturf since she had docked at Slateport. Instead, she decided to test out the new traveling mechanism she had bought while in Kalos; a pair of roller blades. With the apparatuses strapped to her feet, she decided to take the low road since she didn’t expect Cycling Road to accept people on roller blades instead of bikes.

Ruka had decided there was no immediate reason to go back home to Littleroot Town at the moment. She had seen a couple of her siblings shopping in the open shops in Slateport. They had seemed fine, so she didn’t bother to go and say hi to them. As if she wasn’t planning to do so when she really did arrive at her house. In any case, she felt that it would make more sense to check Verdanturf for her friend before heading through the tunnel, past Rustboro, through the Petalburg Woods, and into Petalburg to check if Wally was there. 

It didn’t take long at all as the brunette rolls into the Town. The transition from Mauville to the route connecting it to Verdanturf was relaxing, especially since the air was so pure. She had always understood Wally’s parents’ reasoning for moving their child here. After all, she quite liked it here herself. 

It wasn’t long till she swung around the corners of the houses and ended up in a familiar house she had remembered as the house Wally was staying in. She had visited quite a few times, but this was the first in a while. She knocked on the door a few times and waited patiently for someone to answer. It seemed as if she hit right on the spot when Wally peeked out and stammered a greeting. 

"Hello yourself Wally," she said with a simple smile. Of course, that smile was something Ruka would let go very easily. "Did I come at a bad time?"

Returning Home 

Ruka wasn’t one to check up on her home town very often, which in her opinion, was due to the fact her other siblings were there constantly leeching off the nice pampered life they lead there. Unfortunately, this wasn’t the case for Ruka who found it much more entertaining doing things on her own instead of being bored at home all day like a lazy bum. 

So when the brunette landed in the Hoenn region, docking in Slateport City, it was a surprise to the pokemon that followed her that she decided that going home would be a nice change of pace. After, maybe she would seek out her friends. The girl had been mindlessly searching each region for her best friends, having found the one that was MIA, she had decided to go to the region of Kalos. Of course, returning home for a bit first. Maybe she would visit Wally first, after all he was probably the only guy on the planet that wouldn’t get on her nerves.

I feel as if that stupid boy shot a bullet through my brain. 



“You know, the whole hiding in the darkness of your room, trying to block out all sorts of communication is a bit emo,” he pointed out, sarcastically. “And fine, I’ll be a good brother and I won’t be a crazy person… for now.” He twitched slightly as she poked his side, ending up falling horizontally over her body. “Ohhhhhhhh nooooooooooooooooooo! I’ve fallen and I can’t get upppppppppppp!”

"Oof! Fire, get off, you’re heavy!" She struggled under her covers before throwing them on top of him and manually pushing him off. "Arceus Mew, Fire, you’re like fifty or something pounds heavier than I am!" She coughed, aiming her foot for his side and kicking him right off the bed. "Next time you do that, you’ll need more than Life Alert…"



“And you say that as if it were a bad thing, lil’ sis.” He sat down next to her and gently poked her cheek. “No need to thank me, I felt the emo wafting around your room again and decided to stop by.”

"You know fully well why I hate it here and I’m NOT emo. Besides, I’m exhausted right now. I can’t deal with your ridiculous attitude today." She crawled under her covers and poked Fire’s side. "Go… I want to be left alone…" 


I’m sorry this me isn’t cute. But you cannot change me. This me will always be me.
