Just so you know: A/N time! Haha. Well, just so you know, ARON and UMBREON are my fav PKMN! So you'll be hearing about them quite a lot...I like MAWILE quite a lot too. And I have to make certain letters capitalized b/c this stupid program is annoying and they say I misspell them and that is SO ANNOYING! Sorry. I'm Hematite's crazy cousin Plebia, as he so NICELY refers to me. I write the stories, he does everything else.
It was just another average day. Jack the farmer was sickling his grass fields. 'Whew.' He thought. 'That's the last of them.' That day, there were 4 fields of corn and 5 fields of tomatoes to be harvested. There were also 15 fields of grass to be cut.
Jack was a very plain person. Soft spoken but strong minded. He wore his blue cap backwards, but a tuft of chestnut colored hair still showed. He said nothing unless someone asked him to. His blue overalls had no designs on them, like his scarlet bandana and snow-white shirt. His orange rucksack was pristine, but it, too, had no design. Jack was quick to show his opinion, however, when someone offended him, like Duke. Duke was the owner of the Aja Winery, and went to the Supermarket frequently. Unfortunately, he was also known as a free loader and never paid his bill. When Jack saw this, he was quick to speak up. But most other times, he said nothing.
Jack thought a lot. To most people, he seemed deep. But as he explained to his friends on one of those rare occasions when he spoke, he wasn't deep. He wasn't trying to be. Jack simply thought more than he spoke. Unlike Manna. 'Dear Lord,' he thought one day. 'Does she ever shut up?'
Jack Kurata was the grandson of Magami Kurata. He had inherited the farm from his grandfather, so he could stay in Mineral Town forever if he could prove himself. There was always an if. He had three years. If he could manage the farm well enough, get married, and make enough friends at the end of the three, then he could stay. If he didn't, well, he'd have to go back to the city. Which didn't suit Jack very well at all.
Today was no different. Jack did his work, and was finished with everything at 6 PM. The dusk of yet another boring day. The end of another plain old, average, boring, and pointless day. 'Why am I doing this?' Jack thought. 'There's nothing to do...it's the second year already. I only have 5 sheep and 5 cows. At least the chickens are well. But I don't have a dog or a horse! And that just sucks mold.' He turned to go into his shack-I mean house, but then he remembered to go get his hoe, which had been abandoned in the middle of the field.
What he saw surprised him. Very, very, much.
A dog, a diminutive dog, was eating his hoe. It looked like a Dalmatian, only it didn't have ears. The dog had bright, bright, blue eyes, and its body was covered in white plates. 'Plates...' thought Jack. 'Those aren't plates. They're...they're steel! He's covered in steel!' A dog. A dog made of steel, was eating Jack's hoe. In the middle of his field. 'What is it?' Jack wondered. He advanced to salvage his iron hoe, but the dog seemed to realize this. The dog thing that was covered in steel tackled Jack's knees and sent him flying across the farm.
A/N: What is that dog thing? Yes, I know this is short. So what? I love that 'dog thing'! Do you know what it is? It's...it's...an...
Let's spoil the story! It's an ARON! Yop! One of m POKEMON ever! I LUV ARON and UMBREON! ARON is from the Ruby and Sapphire games, in case you don't play POKEMON. He's a Steel/Ground combo. He's pretty tough, good on offense and defense. He's weak against the attack 'Magnitude' though. =( But I still like him! And next chapter, we will meet Mineral Town's POKEMON expert...and he'll have a MAWILE! Ooh..and next chappie, Cliff comes to MT! So happy. Haha spoiling my own story. Whatever. Just a heads up. Almost everyone will get a POKEMON. The adults, I don't know...all the young people are, anyways. Review, please. Tell me how much my story sucks. And give suggestions on what POKEMON Duke, Doug, Carter, Stu, and the Doctor should receive.
