Kura: Hiya everybody! I know that I said that this story was discontinued and that I would delete this story but then I decided to give it one more chance. I honestly didn't want to delete it, especially with a lot of people asking me not too or to update…so yeah, I decided to try it again. I changed it not by much but since my writing style changed from doing many POVs to doing only regular POV, I decided to just rewrite it. I hope that it's fine. :)
Kura: Oh, and thank you to all the reviewers to asked me to update and continue this story! You have really helped me in deciding this very decision! This is all dedicated to all you who have asked and encouraged me! :D
Berry: Kura does not own Pokemon Diamond and Pearl or Shugo Chara. Start.
Chapter 1 – A Promise Broken
Light shone into the room of a young girl. The morning warmth felt amazing outside and many young children were outside, playing in the sun's rays and getting a delicious treat to cool themselves, even though their mother's instructed them not too. Although, in the very room just spoken about earlier, a young girl was still sleeping away her summer holidays…that was…until four rather loud little tiny floating girls woke her up.
"WAKE UP AMU-CHAN!"
"KYAAAA!" A girl with bright pink hair fell to the floor, her bed sheets then following after her and landed on top of her, hiding her from the rest of the world. Then in a matter of seconds, the sheets were flung into the air and the same girl jumped up, turning to glare at the little floating girl in front of her and yelled, "WILL YOU PLEASE STOP WAKING ME UP LIKE THAT RAN?" Her golden eyes lit up in anger.
The very person she was yelling at only giggled and said in a matter-of-fact tone, "You wouldn't wake up." Her pink eyes were full of amusement and mischief however as she tried to look her best at being more serious. It didn't work since she fell to heaps of laughter. Amu only glared at her.
Another one like Ran floated up to Amu with a kind smile and said in a motherly tone, "Amu-chan, time to change!" Her green eyes were full of worry however as she stared at the rather large bump on Amu's head.
Amu sighed and smiled. "Thanks Suu; and don't worry, it should go away soon." She said, indicating to the bump before turning to glare at the hyperactive pink one who continued to laugh.
"You're gonna be late." Silence ran through the room as Amu looked at Miki and her rather too-serious blue eyes before looking towards her clock, a second of silence running pass them and then a splitting scream tearing the happy morning.
"I'M GONNA BE LATE!"
Meanwhile, Dia only sighed and shook her head, thinking, I really shouldn't be so surprised about this… Then she yawned and went to her yellow and black egg, went inside, and fell asleep. Ran, Miki, and Suu watched her and all three shrugged before turning back to Amu and watching with amusement at their bearer who ran back and forth with clothes half on, falling to the ground, getting back up, and then grabbing her black and red bag.
Amu wore a black hat with cat ears with a red X sew onto it and silver rings. Her usual red X pin was on her hair as well. Her clothes consisted of a white collared shirt before pulling over a black and red striped thin sweater over it. She wore a tie with several modifications to her liking and black shorts that were attached to her long and baggy black socks. She ran out before running back in and grabbing the four eggs and placing them gently in her bag and crying out, "Come on you three!" before running back out.
Ran, Miki, and Suu looked at each other before laughing and flying after Amu who they had lived with for a long time now. By the time they got downstairs, they saw Amu stuffing her mouth with a toast and muttering bye to her family. But then they saw Ami reach out and grab Amu's shorts as the older girl was putting on her black shoes. Amu looked at Ami and smiled.
"What's wrong Ami?" Then the pink haired girl blinked in surprise when she saw her little sister sniff slightly, her eyes becoming watery.
Ami looked at her older sister before mumbling in words too soft for their parents to hear. "You'll come back?" Amu looked at her sister, wondering what in the world happened to her sister before smiling and kneeling down in front of her, resting a hand on her sister's smaller shoulder. Ami looked at Amu.
"I will never ever leave you Ami. You are my precious sister and I'll always come back for you because I love you too much."
"Even more than that King?"
Amu giggled and nodded. "Even more than Tadase." She said and then Ami smiled sadly at her. Her eyes still held sadness and barely noticeable tears. But Amu can see them…she could see them…
"I can feel it…I can feel that you're going to leave and never come back!" She said softly, looking down and Amu saw her tears falling to the floor. Luckily, mama and papa were too busy making breakfast for their little daughter in the kitchen as they knew that Amu would leave already.
A strange feeling of danger passed through Amu's entire body as though there was a total of a thousand X eggs attacking her as she was alone. She then hugged Ami tightly, surprising the little girl. "I promise Ami…even if I disappear from this world, I will always come back. Even if it takes me years, I will come back and be with you again Ami…"
Then she heard the soft sniffles from her little sister and giggled while Ami hugged her back tightly. "Onee-chan…" She heard from the little girl. Meanwhile, her three awakened charas were cooing at the sight, embarrassing the older sister but she still held on tight to her little sister.
Finally, Amu let go when their mother told Ami to come to the kitchen for breakfast. Ami looked at her sister and grinned. "Ja ne onee-chan!" She said happily. Amu smiled back and ruffled her sister's hair playfully. "H-Hey; onee-chan, stop that!"
Amu laughed. "Well, see you later, kay Ami?" Ami nodded. Then Amu turned, opening the door and left. Ami continued to smile but then it disappeared as the door closed.
"…" She stayed silent before turning around and headed toward the kitchen with the small grave look of worry. All she could think of was, don't forget your promise…onee-chan…
It took a while but soon, Amu could see the roof of Seiyo Elementary school. Though she was now on her way to seventh grade, the Guardians still exist as there are still bound to be X eggs around. Amu smiled as she remembered the new members of the Guardians in the Elementary division while she and the others moved up to the Middle division. And because of Hikaru being the King's chair and Rikka being the Queen's chair now, Tadase and Rima could no longer fill those position while Nagihiko and Amu had to remain the Jack and Joker until new members could arrive.
"Amu-chan, we're nearly there!" Dia said sleepy as she had woke up nearly moments ago. She rubbed her eyes and still managed to stay in pace with the others.
Ran pouted. "Mou Amu-chan; if only you slept earlier last night, we wouldn't be so late!" She cried out as the others remembered staying up late to watch scary film in which Amu could not go to sleep right after.
Amu turned her head and glared at Ran. Her eyes were on fire and was making a pissed off scary face that scared Ran. "YOU WERE THE ONE THAT DECIDED TO WATCH THE MOVIE RAN!" She screamed as she then ran ahead, not wanting to listen to Ran's voice.
The little cheerleader shook as she flew after her bearer. Her eyes were still large in shock and she was very terrified of seeing Amu like that. "S-S-Scary…" She muttered as her sisters nodded in agreement.
"Well, Amu-chan is right. You did force us to watch that movie suu~" Suu said.
Miki could only nod in agreement. Dia didn't say anything, still too tired to respond.
Within minutes, they all arrived at the gates of the school. Amu ran faster while her charas desperately tried to catch up with her. Soon, they ran through the glass doors of the Royal Garden and ran to the middle, panting and falling to the ground. "S-Sorry…I-I'm…late…" Amu managed to say before collapsing to the floor.
A girl then kneeled besides her, her golden eyes looking at Amu. "Amu…Are you alright…?" She asked softly while her chara, Kusu-Kusu poked Amu's chara with glee.
Amu looked up and smiled. "Yeah, thanks Rima." Rima smiled back with an amazing amount of warmth that she would only give out to Amu herself and the cute baby-like girl, Yaya.
Yaya jumped out of her seat and crashed into Amu with a large bear hug. "AMU-CHI! You're late, late, late! I was soooooo bored! WHY DID YOU COME LATE?" She cried out, her eyes now burning with fake anger.
A sigh escaped the pink haired girl's lips before patting Yaya's head and said, "Sorry but I slept late thanks to a certain someone." She shot Ran a glare while Ran herself was whistling innocently. Then Amu stood up, smiling at everybody and said, "Good morning guys."
The rest there except Hikaru smiled and said in a chorus of words, "Good morning." Hikaru meanwhile, only nodded before turning away and mumbled a small good morning. Amu smiled at the King's chair.
Then once again, Yaya jumped into the air and said, "Minna; I have something to show you!" Her eyes shone with excitement as she said this and her actions could not argue with her. Everybody then proceeded to watch as she grabbed her two bags and placed it on the table with much difficulty. As it was placed, it made a loud thud and everybody stared warily at it. All of a sudden, Yaya began pulling things out. Everybody yelped as things were thrown in their way while Rima and Hikaru only dodged in silence.
Nagihiko sweat dropped as a small pillow was slammed into Kukai's face while blankets were thrown onto Tadase's head, hiding him from sight. Amu caught several bentou boxes just in time as they were thrown in her direction and Rikka yelped when bottles of ice cold water were thrown at her. Everybody then placed the objects they had gotten a hold of on the table and looked at Yaya who was still looking for something, mumbling all the way.
"GOT IT!" They all turned to see Yaya holding up a book with a strange cover.
Everybody could only stare at it in silence before they all said simultaneously, "How do you fit all these in there?"
"Duh, I have two bags!" Yaya said as though it were the most obvious thing in the world.
Everybody only stared at her and sighed inwardly.
Amu shook her head as she thought in disbelief. And to think my bag is bigger than hers…
After stuffing all that she had back into her bags, Yaya placed the book on the table. Everybody stared as she then went ahead to open it very…very…very…very…slowly…
"GET ON WITH IT!" Rikka, Amu, and Kukai cried out while the others shook their head at the childish girl.
Yaya pouted. "Sheesh…can't even add a dramatic feel to anything…" She muttered. The three who yelled glared at her hotly. Then once again, Yaya opened the book and everybody gasped softly at the beautiful first page.
It was just a picture book. But the picture in front of them was quite beautiful with the fields of flowers and the clear blue sky. A forest surrounded the field as though hiding the marvelous scene from prying eyes. Clearly the author had an amazing imagination. But what surprised the children were not the flowers or the trees or the sky. What surprised them were the strange looking creatures living in the field.
There was a small herd of these cute little bear cubs but they had strange designs on their body and did not look like an ordinary bear with its ordinary brown fur. It did have brown fur but there was that lighter shade on his brow shaped as a crescent moon and the tail was more similar to that of a bunny's.
On the other side of the field, and playing with each other were another group of strange creatures that this time, looked like raccoons. Their ears, however, looked like a rabbit's and was standing on its tail rather that it's feet. Their tails were also stripped.
Amu looked at the creatures curiously before another caught her attention: one that looked like a pink cat with slightly pokey grass sticking out of its head. The eyes were yellow and they were floating in the sky with a couple of others like it. Alongside them, flying, were strange creatures similar to birds. They basically looked…different.
"I like the flowers." Everybody looked up to see Rima and Nagihiko staring at each other, their eyes surprised before Rima glowered at the long haired boy and Nagi doing the same, both feeling that they shouldn't like the same thing. The rest sweat dropped at the two but couldn't help laughing silently that the two 'rivals' said the same thing at the same time. However…Yaya and Rikka openly laughed.
"HAHAHA!" Amu looked warily at Yaya who fell down, laughing and clutching her sides. Rikka did the same as they teased Rima and Nagi. Rima looked angered while Nagi slightly blushed and turned away, confusing the rest but they paid no attention.
However, Amu did notice Tadase and Kukai cover their mouth as to stop themselves from laughing at poor Nagi.
Amu then shook her head and took the book, looking at it herself while Yaya and Rikka teased Nagi and Rima with the help of Kukai while Tadase simply watched while drinking tea with Hikaru. Both looked slightly bored. Amu smiled before looking back at the book, her attention completely on it. She was very interested in the creatures in the book. She started to flip through the pages, taking in every detail. Creatures of different shapes and sizes met her golden curious eyes and she took them in gladly. But there was one that took her attention. Its brown eyes bore into her and she couldn't help but feel a strange tingly sensation run up her spine. She shivered.
Finally, she reached a page of a man and another strange creature with strange looking plates circling its body. Its shape was similar to a…reindeer maybe? Something like a horse or a deer but looking at the eyes, Amu was just drawn into it. She traced the creature with her fingers as everybody else in the background continued to tease the previous Jack and Queen. Amu looked at the man holding an orb. The man looked strangely familiar…very familiar…but where?
She turned to the next page but her eyes suddenly held surprise as she saw a lock and a key in the same man's hand. The man himself, well, she could not see his face. But the key and the lock, she knew what they were…she knows what they are…she has one of them…
"Hey, why're the Humpty Lock and the Dumpty Key in here?" Amu voiced out and everybody turned to her.
Tadase was the first to speak. "What do you mean Amu?" The two were already on a first name basis without the kun and chan at the end.
Amu turned the book around, the pages now facing her friends and pointed at the lock and key. "Look; doesn't it look like the Humpty Lock and Dumpty Key?" She asked. Everybody took one look and the shock in their eyes was all that was needed to convince Amu that they realized what it was as well.
Nagi was the next to respond. "Maybe that book relates to a shugo chara?" He asked.
"That's not possible; the only book that's related to a shugo chara is that picture book." Tadase said as he shook his head, frowning.
"Then why…" Kukai muttered as he placed his fingers over his lips, pondering. Even Rikka and Hikaru were in deep thought as they followed the teen's actions.
Amu then flipped to the next page, dismissing the question but continued to look in curiosity. She didn't care if curiosity killed the cat; after all, cats have nine lives, right? Amu smiling inwardly at that thought before her attention was returned to the book.
She looked at the delicate book. It was nearly battered and seemed very old. To find picture books like this, she thought, must be very rare. Then finally, she turned to another page and saw a human boy along with another strange creature looking like a yellow mouse with long ears with a caption saying, "No matter what, we'll always be friends…" But then, anything after that was rubbed away, making Amu unable to read it.
"…No matter what…we'll always be friends…" Amu whispered as her finger gently traced the boys and the creatures smiling faces. She gave a small smile. "Must be nice…I wish I could go there and meet them…" But then again, it's just a storybook; they don't exist. She reasoned to herself.
All of a sudden, her eyes were blinded and she dropped the book on the table as a bright light covered the book. "W-What the-?" She cried out, causing the others to turn to her, only to close their eyes due to the bright light.
"W-What's going on?" Hikaru asked as he opened his eyes slightly, looking at the book.
"I-I-I don't know!" Amu cried out when suddenly, she felt wind rushing past her and she gasped as she felt it try to pull her in. She opened her eyes fully despite the bright light and saw the book open and something like a small twister came out. Amu watched in horror as her friends were slowly getting sucked in when suddenly, Hikaru and Rikka could hold on anymore, their strength failing them.
They screamed out as they got taken and everybody yelled in horror, yelling the younger one's names. "HIKARU! RIKKA!"
Then Yaya followed after as her arms couldn't hold on anymore. Amu watched as Kukai reached to grab her, his eyes wide with horror, only to have slipped and follow after Yaya. The rest screamed out as even their charas chased after them.
Tears started to appear in Amu's eyes as she watched her friends disappear into the book one by one. Instantly, she felt hatred towards the book and even though she knew the feelings were stupid, she just couldn't help it. "MINNA!" She cried out as she watched the rest of her friends get sucked up. In the end, only Rima and Kusu Kusu were left, despite their weak arms. Amu looked at her best friend, tears falling.
She watched as Rima cast her a fearful look before her fingers slipped from the pole she was holding on too and with shocked and scared look, Amu heard her scream out, "AMUUUUUUUU!"
The rest of Amu's tears fell as Amu watched her best friend and her chara fall in. "RIMAAAAAA!"
"KUSU KUSUUUU!" Ran, Miki, Suu, and Dia screamed out.
But that was their mistake for at that moment, Amu slipped as she was screaming and now, she found herself getting sucked into the book. She gave a tearful look at the closed door of the Royal Garden before screaming, "HELP!" And then, along with her charas, she was gone.
Ami looked up, her eyes suddenly filled with sadness and shock. "…N-No…" She whimpered as tears fell from her eyes. Instantly, her parents noticed and rushed to her side, both confused and worried.
"What's wrong Ami-chan?" Her mother asked with her eyes wide with worry. Her father stood next to her mother with the same worried expression.
Ami only looked at them before she cried out, "Onee-chan is gone! She's gone!" She rushed to her mother's comforting arms, crying. "O-Onee-chan…she's gone!"
Her parents only looked at each other with worry and confusion but the little girl didn't care. She could feel it…that her sister was gone. Gone from the very world…
The garden returned to its peaceful silence. However, the place looked slightly trashed with the chairs turned over and dirt from the pots being blown on the pathway. However, the table stayed upright and on the table was a small and tattered like book, closed. But on the cover, there was an inscription glowing faintly.
Then, in a bright light, a girl appeared in front of it, her sea blue eyes eying the book warily. Slowly, she touched it and drew back quickly. A sigh escaped her lips before she grabbed the book and turned around. She looked at the book with no emotion betraying her eyes. In a faint whisper, she spoke.
"I bid you good luck…ones of the prophecy…"
And then, in a bright light, she was gone. All that was left was the silence of the garden with no trace of the ones who stood there not too long ago for they were gone…gone from this world and entered a different world.
A different world…
…The world of Pokemon…
