Ash and Gary have known each other since they were little, and grew up to be rivals. Gary never admitted it but Ash was his most important friend. Was.
Ash has been missing for several months, and Gary is determined to do whatever it takes to find him. Only thing is, Gary is remembering every thing he and Ash did. He looses sleep from the memories, and there is also the fact that he is denying he has any kind of feelings for his raven hair friend.
He loves Ash with every ounce of being in him, and that only makes him want to find Ash more.
