Chapter 1:- Twinkle Twinkle
Ash gazed lovingly at his sleeping fiancée, who was curled up gently next to him. Her fire-red hair glowed softly in the dim moonlight streaming through the window, and her usual scowl was replaced by a small smile. He couldn't help but love the woman he'd known since he was ten years old, now for over half his life. He stroked her hair tenderly, thinking of the night a few months ago when he'd proposed. It was a beautiful moment for both of them to remember, and he loved to think of it whenever he couldn't sleep. The memory entered his mind, and it filled him with warmth. She'd never seen it coming.

Ash had taken her out for a romantic evening, leaving Pikachu at home (against the electric Pokémon's will until Ash explained his plan). He'd slipped the ring into the pocket of his suit. The small box couldn't even be seen. The two had enjoyed a wonderful dinner, and were taking a walk on the Cerulean city beach, which was completely dead at that time of night, with a bright moon shining like the sun.

He remembered how beautiful the red-haired woman had looked. A sleeveless turquoise dress that fell down almost to her ankles, her long hair up in a gorgeous braided design. She hated heels, and had donned a pair of white sandals for the June night. But as they walked in the sand, both were barefoot.

Suddenly, he stopped. She didn't complain. It was nice just to hold her, his girlfriend, tightly in his arms and the waves rolled gently onto the sand, the only noise around. It was nice just to be with her; alone and together tonight.

He reached up to her face with one of his hands. Her face, so smooth and soft, so warm. And her eyes, closed now, so bright with an emerald light. Slowly he kissed her, gently but passionately, and she responded well. His other hand rested curled around the small of her back, her own hands loosely around his neck.

Carefully he pulled back. She gave him a warm smile as he reached into his pocket for the small blue velvet box. As he held it out to her, she looked surprised, shaking slightly as if she already knew what it contained.

"Misty," he said once her hands were firmly gripping the small box, "I love you. So much. And I never want to leave your side." She opened the box, very slowly, it seemed like eternity before she saw it. Then she gasped, barely audibly, but the beach was too quiet. Ash heard it.

"Marry me?"

The redheaded woman was almost on the verge of tears, something she hardly ever was, certainly never around him. She stood there, in shock, gazing at the ring. It was silver, with gems in all sorts of blues from sky to sapphire inlaid; and one emerald, the color of her eyes, which were now beginning to mist over.

"Oh, Ash," she whispered, barely breathed the words. "Of course I will. I love you. I love you more than you know. Yes, Ash. Yes, yes!"
The tears almost spilled out of her eyes. He slipped the ring onto her finger, which shone brightly as the moonlight hit its jewels. Then he embraced her, wrapping her tightly in a grasp that would have left her gasping for air, but she could barely breathe anyway.

They broke apart, eventually, and continued walking down the beach, with her grasping his arm tight, as if she would never let go, like they would stay in the moment forever. Her ring shone brighter with each step, and she couldn't help but look at it and think of how amazing her boyfriend - no, fiancée - was. He, in turn, couldn't stop looking at her, thinking of her, and how gorgeous she was, what an amazing wife she'd be.


"Yes, Ash?"

"I don't see how I could ever love you more than I do right now."

Now he saw one single tear slide quickly down her cheek. It startled him. "Are you crying, baby?"

"Yes, Ash, I am. Because I love you too. I love you so much. I never want to let go of you." He grabbed her tenderly, pulled her towards him, embracing her in his strong arms.

"I will never let go of you, either, Misty."

Somewhere a lone noctowl hooted softly.

Now Ash was closer to sleep. He always felt the memory helped him, made him warm and soft and satisfied. Still he stroked the fire colored hair of the sleeping beauty next to him. Suddenly she stirred.

"Ash?" She lifted her head slightly, the hand she'd had under her head showing off the twinkling engagement ring.

"Yes, baby?"

"It's the middle if the night. Get some sleep. What are you doing awake anyway?"

"Watching you sleep. Remembering." He felt the ring gently. Slowly she reached her hand up to his face, pulling it back down into the pillow.

"Sleep, babe. I love you."

"I love you too."
