Disclaimer: I DO NOT OWN POKEMON! (Sure wish I did though... Ah well!)
Now, on with the story! (But first, to clear things up: Ash, Misty, Brock and Pikachu and still travelling together, and Ash is at his house with Misty while Brock is out in town. And nope, this is NOT Pikashipping. It's not any kind of shipping really. Just showing the friendship between Ash and Pikachu.)
"Hey Pikachu?" asked Ash Ketchum who was sitting next to Misty Waterflower, his girlfriend of two years.
"Pi pikapi?" (Yes, Ash?)
"You should come with me on a walk, buddy!" he exclaimed excitedly.
After an agreeing nod from Misty, Ash and Pikachu walked out the front door and started walking to their backyard, until Ash found a tire swing and started swinging, while Pikachu sat on the grass, noting the thoughtful expression on Ash's face.
"Pika pika pi pikachu?" (What's wrong, Ash?)
"Well Pikachu, I brought you out here because I wanted to say how thankful I am for you and everything you've done for me.", Ash stated.
Pikachu was astonished. He was also glad because he knew him and Pikachu were super close.
"Pi?" (For what?)
"You mean you don't know what I'm thanking you for?"
"Pikachu, there's so many things I can thank you for, but I'll name the most important ones. Buddy, I have to thank you for not killing me the first day I met you."
"Pika pika chuu…" (Yeah… sorry about that.)
"Don't be sorry about that buddy. You saved my life AND helped form a lifelong friendship with me all in one day. That's amazing Pikachu."
"Pi…Pikachu?" (You mean it?)
"Of course I do, Pikachu. I mean, without you, I wouldn't be here today."
"And… I gotta thank you for getting me and Misty together. Me and my dense brain (or so I've heard) would have never realized it if you hadn't helped me, buddy." Ash said with confidence.
"Pika chu Pikapi." (It was no problem, Ash.)
"But most of all, I thank you for being the best friend anyone could ever have. Thank you for saving me numerous times. Thank you for being you. You're Pikachu. And I would never trade it, or you, for the world."
Pikachu began tearing up st the emotional thank you he was receiving from his best friend.
"And I can never thank you enough for all you've done. But I'll try as hard as I possibly can to repay you, Pikachu."
"Pikapi pika pi chu pika." (Ash, you don't have to. I promise.)
"Okay… if you're sure buddy."
"Pika chu pi." (I am.)
"I guess we'd better get back. Misty will start to worry." Ash stated.
"Pi pika chu." (Yeah, we should.)
Ash and Pikachu were halfway back to the house when Ash stopped and knelt down to Pikachu.
"You know what, buddy? You're my little blessing."
(A/N: I'm starting to get used to writing fanfics, so please, be easy. I'm learning! *raises hands defensively* I wrote this on impulse because I had a spark of inspiration. Sorry if the characters seem a little OOC, but it's my story! :D Anyways, please rate and review! I really appreciate the nice reviews!)
-Colorful Pikachu. :D
