Diode a l'Amour: Part 5"Um, Ash... what are we doing here?"
After breakfast, once Serena took Bonnie and Dedenne to the town's shopping district, Ash grabbed Clemont by the wrist and dragged him all the way across town. The boys ran for almost half an hour until they found themselves at one of the town's local battlefields, one that Ash had heard about from a few locals while back at the Pokemon Center.
The battlefield was basically the standard layout for most professional designs; it was a layer of dirt that had been bordered with white paint and decorated with the classic Poke Ball logo at the center. Surrounding it was a ring of luscious, green grass, as well as a number of wooden benches. Since it was located on the edge of town, it was parallel to a large forest, which was rich with trees, shrubs and other plant-life. The boys had even heard that there were a bevy of unique Pokemon that lived in the forest, ones that often wandered into town.
Ash grinned excitedly, adding a chuckle shortly after. "We'r
Diode a l'Amour: Part 4Breakfast couldn't have been any more awkward for Serena and Clemont. After what happened earlier, neither party felt like they could say a word to one another, or to Ash or Bonnie. They just sat at their booth in the cafeteria - Bonnie and Serena on one side, and Ash and Clemont on the other, with Pikachu and Dedenne eating together on the end of the table - in complete and utter silence.

Also, ever since they sat down, Serena hadn't so much as glanced at the boys, and vice versa. Even at her age, Bonnie knew that something had happened between the three of them.
The younger blonde slammed her palms against the table, starting the rest of the
Diode A l'Amour: Part 3Clemont felt inexplicably warm when he woke up that morning. He felt like he was thrown into a sauna and had the door locked behind him. The feeling of warmth was particularly focused at his chest and across his hip. He couldn't be any warmer if he was hugging a hot water bottle. It was almost like he was hugging an actual person...
That last thought was enough for Clemont to snap his eyes wide open, looking to his side. He felt his heart skip a beat when he saw that, none other than Ash was curled up against him. From what he gathered, Clemont saw that Ash had taken off his shirt in the middle of the night, and was lying topless next to him. This all had taken him by surprise, but none more so than when Clemont saw that Ash was snuggling up to him, burying his face into Clemont's chest.
In this situation, the only thing Clemont could think to do was to scream loudly, throw the blankets off himself, and jump out of it. He was in such a rush, however, that his foot got caught up in the
