How to be Brave - Blanche x Spark
~Boy x boy story - so even though Blanche has been drawn as a woman, he's a male for this story because yaoi is life~
Blanche was born with a curse on his body. Until he finds his soul mate he is doomed to be unhappy and soulless. Growing up is tough on a boy whose village despises him and blocks him out of everything because of the 'curse'. Regardless, he grows up to be intelligent, strong and in command of the pokemon around him - making him the perfect gym leader.
However, as he launches out on his own as a gym leader, he finds himself training some people who need help with their control and wisdom. Spark, a gentle yet irritating soul, seems to draw Blanche in until he can't refuse his desires anymore.
Is Spark his soul mate? Will this unruly man make the cold and withdrawn leader mellow?
