Chapter 3:

Who Is He?

   “Olive!” I cried over the phone. She gasped at my anxiousness to tell her something.

   “What?! What’s wrong?” She said quizzically in a worried tone. I was smiling dramatically on the other end of the line.

   “I just met the boy of my dreams!” I said trying to hold back a huge smile which might’ve made me start laughing to myself.

   “Seriously?! Finally! Now we can go on double dates!” Olive said excitedly.

   I sighed, “Doesn’t mean I’m dating him. I just fell in love with him when we met.”

   “How’d you two love birds meet then? Tell me everything!” She demanded. I laughed.

   “OK, don’t worry.” I cleared my throat and began, “Me and Absol came around a corner where these two guys in complete black were attacking the boy with a Venusaur’s Razor Leaf and restraining him with Vine Whip. He was injured and I have no clue why they were after him. My first instinct was to help him and that’s what me and Absol did. Absol took out Venusaur and I got injured in the process too. The boy grabbed my arm and led me to a gap in the wall where we hid until they couldn’t find us and we escaped. I took him back to my house and fixed up his wounds and he decided to fix up my one too. He was so cute… but then he left so quickly I didn’t get a chance to ask for his name or anything. I hope I’ll see him again.” I finished. Olive paused for a moment.

   “So, after all this… you’re in love with a guy you don’t even know basically. You don’t know anything about him, no name, no address, no phone number… Talk about love, your life is so difficult isn’t it, Alice?” She joked. I sighed, she was right in a way though. I should’ve asked for his name when I had the chance.

   “Yeah… Now I feel hopeless…” I murmured. Olive seemed silent.

   “No, don’t say that. I’ll go looking for him with you, we’ll find him don’t worry; and you two will be wed and have babies by the dozen!” She said calmly, the laughed. I frowned.

   “Thanks, you’re so right.” I said sarcastically.

   “OK, but don’t worry. We’ll find him, this isn’t the biggest city in the world and we know a lot people here. Maybe we could ask them if they’ve seen him.” Olive suggested. I nodded but thought quickly about him.

   “We’ll have to do it sooner rather than later though, my image of him is fading fast ‘cos I’ve only met him the one time. Plus I’ve never seen him around here before… maybe he’s on holiday here.” I said sadly. Olive hummed and began to think.

   “We could think that but why were those guys after him then? It must’ve been a targeted attack because they didn’t let him go when you came in. Also, they were determined to capture him for some reason so he couldn’t have been hassling them in any way. He also doesn’t sound like he’s a lad of any description so he wouldn’t have been hassling them… I think he lives here and those guys have some nerve with him, but they need him for something.” Olive exclaimed. She sounded so smart just then.

   “Really? Well that’s bringing back my hopes now.” I said with a smile.

   “Yeah, well that’s what I assume though. Don’t expect that, he might not be visiting.” She reminded.

   “Yeah, true… let’s pray then.” I suggested with a half-smile which wasn’t as confident as I’d hoped. I really wanted to see him again. I think I do love him.

   “Well, if he loves you to then he might be looking for you too!” She said with a confident voice.
