"There's nothing I value more than my friendship with a shy little Mudkip named Dew. I've known her for as long as I can remember and we're best of friends. In contrast to my recklessness and sense for adventure, her timidity is really endearing, yet we both get along better than any two Pokemon could. True, she may be my one and only friend, but that's all an orphaned Treecko like me could ever ask for. And I know that she cares for me as well, heh..."
Florel and Dew are best friends that come to realize that their fondness for each other may be more than just simple friendship. Together, they'll face the many hurdles standing between them and their growing love for each other. I started writing this story on Valentine's Day and, after four and a half months, it has grown from far more than a short lemon to a sweet love story. Emphasis is more on the characters and their development than some huge and complex plot. :3
This story wasn't originally meant to be as large as it grew into it. It was just supposed to be a quickie for Valentine's Day. But I ended up falling in love with the characters and going along with their personalities and affections towards each other. It was just so endearing that I had to keep writing. I'm glad I did, though, because I personally believe that this is the best story I have written to date, far more so than even Middle of Nowhere. I can only hope that you, the reader, feel the same, but even if you don't, it was really great writing this story and has helped further my experience as a writer. Thank you!Also thank you to The Tinkler for helping me proofread this and to everyone else that has helped me while writing A Friend Indeed. :3
