It was the day that Lillis had been waiting for, a day where her life would change forever, and she was ready to go. She had been since some ridiculously early time in the morning, unable to sleep for the sheer excitement that had overcome her. What would cause such behavior? Today was the day she would get her first pokemon and she already knew exactly which pokemon she would choose. Charmander, the fire pokemon. It would be the perfect companion for her journey. At least, that was what she hoped. After all, no two pokemon were exactly the same. She had learnt a little about it during school but she was sure to learn more soon.
Of course, it was also tradition. Leaving home at ten years old to go on your first adventure, making your way in the world, and she wasn't going to fail that test. She never failed.
"You should eat something, dear." Her mother was worried about her again, but Lillis was in no mood for food. Now that it was time, she wasn't about to delay. She couldn't risk Professor Elm not having her desired pokemon! That would be a disasterous start to the whole thing. She shook her head, throwing a plush squirtle at her brother as she headed out of the house.
"It'll be your turn soon, don't drop the ball!"
She rushed to the lab and was pleased to finally get inside. The professor talked about how important this choice was, but she already knew her answer. There was no hesitation as she chose the charmander.
"Char, that'll be your name." A simple name, from the mind of a girl that was still in reality a child. The charmander chirped quietly at it's new trainer before returning to it's ball. This was it, this was really it. As she made her way out of the lab she could barely believe it. All this time she had waited and now she couldn't even decide what she actually wanted to do. Obviously, she needed to head for the next town first. But what then? She didn't know, and the truth was she'd never been sure of that. Her destiny lay ahead of her... Whatever that was.
