Red and Lucas met with Sycamore, Flint, Violet, and Oak on a street corner in Lumiose city as the boys would greet their families.
"Hey Boys, glad you made it." said Sycamore with a smile as the boys we're taking a moment to catch their breath. "We're all going to take a bus over to Snowbelle City; i've already rented the Cabin so we'll have ourselves a very memorable Christmas.
"Sounds really fun, building snowmen, having a snowball fight!" said Red
"Making Hot Chocolate, Makinch Christmas Cookies." said Lucas as Sycamore smiled at the boys as a large Bus pulled over where the group was standing and opened it's doors.
"Come on Everybody let's get on the bus!" Sycamore called out as everybody got on the bus and got seated with Red and Lucas in one seat, Sycamore and Oak in another and Violet and Flint in one as well which got Red and Lucas talking as the bus started to move.
"Hey Red, I was thinking about something?"
"What's on your mind?"
"Well do you think it's possible that maybe....uh....?" Lucas was a bit nervous and Red could tell as he places a hand on Lucas's shoulder.
"Is something wrong?" Red, saw that Lucas's knees were starting to shake a bit he could tell how nervous Lucas was, and why he wasn't finishing his question. Red placed his hand on Lucas's knee and the small blonde boy looked up to Red and blushed a bit before taking a deep breath, and continuing his question.
"Do you think it would be a good idea if we were some how unite our parents together?" Lucas said as Red looked at him with a smile.
"I was actually thinking the same thing."
"Yeah, I thought how cool would it be if we can get my mom and you're dad together; we would be a family all together."
"I know it would be awesome, but i'm not to sure."
"Lucas, why don't we get them to talk to eachother, and ask them to buy gifts,it can be a great way to maybe get them both together."
"Ok we can do that, and at the same time get eachother gifts." Red and Lucas continued talking as time would pass on the buss ride as Lucas leaned his head on Red's shoulder and would fall asleep with Red also falling asleep as well on the Bus ride. Hors would pass and the boys would both wake up and look out the window to see snow.
"Hey i see snow, i think we're almost there." said Lucas amazed at the snow as Red also looked at Lucas.
"Ha, yeah you're right, this will be exciting." Red said as he and Lucas looked at the snow that was falling around the landscape. The Bus came to a stop at a Cabin which had a beautiful view of the mountains surrounding it, along with several trees and of course snowfall which really set off the scene as everybody started to get off the bus, with Red and Lucas running around in the snow.
"The snow is so beautiful, want to catch snowflakes on our tongues?" asked Lucas as Red nodded as the boys stuck their tongues out to catch snowflakes.
"HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!" laughed Red and Lucas as Red's mom called out for them
"Boys, i think you've got plenty of time later to play in the snow, why don't we take our things into the Cabin and get things set up." Violet said as everybody all went inside the Cabin to find it nice and cozy looking with a lot of square feet, a fireplace, a TV in the living room with furniture, a kitchen, and a staircase leading upstairs.
"This place looks really nice, and very comforting, well let's head up stairs and decide where we're all going to sleep." said Sycamore as everybody all went upstairs and saw that there were four bedrooms upstairs and two bathrooms. "Ok Red and Lucas share a room, I'll get a room by myself that leaves Violet, Flint, and Samuel to decide who shares and who gets one to themselves.
"We have an idea, why don't our parents share a room together, and Oak can have one alone." suggested Red which startled everyone a bit.
"Red, Honey me and him barely know eachother."
"Me and Lucas thought it would be a good idea for you two to get to know eachother, trust us it'll be ok with us, and i'm sure the professor's don't mind having their own rooms to themselves." suggested Red as he and Lucas looked at their parents.
"Well I guess, we can share one, but our room will be next to your room boys, so we can check up on you."
"ok then, can we go put the Christmas Tree up?" asked Lucas
"Sure let's get to it." said Flint as everybody made their way downstairs to put up the Christmas Tree. Sycamore, Oak, and Flint started to put the poles together and into a stand where they began to tighten up screws to hold the entire tree as the men started putting branches on the tree by length, and after getting each individual branch from longest on the bottom to shortest on the top, and straightening out several branches, the Christmas Tree was now ready for decorating.
"Can me and Lucas do the lights?"
"Sure go ahead, boys." said Sycamore as Red and Lucas took a string of lights and started running around the tree throwing the light strands around the tree.
"Boys becareful!" said Violet, as Red and Lucas both tripped and ended up getting themselves tangled in Christmas lights.
"HAHAHAHAHAHA!" Laughed Red and Lucas as did everybody else as the boys would get free and finish putting the lights around the tree.
"Ok who wants to put the star on top of the tree?" asked Sycamore as Red and Lucas hollered
"WE DO!" Lucas took the star as Red gave Lucas a boost by sitting Lucas on his shoulder's for him to reach the top and put the star on top completing the lights and stars.
"Well let's finish it off by putting the ornaments around the tree and the skirt underneath." Everybody all started to put Red and Gold colored glittery ornaments around the tree, both Red and Lucas took some Ornaments they made one of a Pokeball and the Other a Sunflower around the tree as the Tree looked beautiful.
"Hey Boys, let's go put Stocking around the fireplace and after that want to go outside and play while we wrap your gifts for you." said Violet as Red and Lucas smiled as they opened a box containing Stocking to put on a Garland Wrapped Fireplace with lights around them as Red and Lucas both picked a stocking to hang on the Fireplace. After the hung their stockings up both Violet and Flint approached their respective sons for something they wanted to ask.
"Honey, do you want to go in town and buy you're friend a gift?" Violet asked Red, as he nodded with a smile.
"Sure, i'd love to well come with me." Red's mom said as Red looked at Lucas
"Hey Bro, i'm going to go run an errand with my mom, we'll meet up later here.
"Ok, me and my dad was also going to do something so i'll see you later. Lucas and red parted ways for the moment as the boys would spend a bit of quality time with their respective parent, doing some Christmas Shopping.
"So Red, what would you like to get, you're friend for Christmas?" Red's mom asked as they were looking at some store windows.
"Well I want to get him something so we can keep it in our hearts forever."
"Aww that's really Sweet!" Violet said with a smile
"What do you think of Lucas's Dad?" Red asked as Violet wasn't too sure how to respond.
"Well he has a nice son who's your friend, but not really that much, but I guess he's ok to say the least; though I do feel bad for him being all by himself."
"Well maybe you should talk to him more, maybe get to know him more."
"I know it's just that after what happened to your Father and all, i'm not too sure if I'm ready for that kind of thing."
"Well, don't you think it would be nice for me to have a Fatherly Figure in my life?"
"Well I see you have a point, and you're friend, did lose his mother and brother, and you're the closest thing he has for a sibling, and I could possibly become like a Motherly Figure to him."
"Ha, that would be so cool."
"I know honey, maybe I should talk to him more, and maybe consider it, after all it would be nice to have you boys closer together and all of us close as a Family." As Red and Violet were walking through Town Red noticed something in a Store Window that he thought would make for an excellent gift for Lucas.
"Mom, do you see that, I think that is What I should get Lucas for Christmas."
"All right honey, let's go see it and pay for it and we'll than go meet with your Friend."
"All right let's do it." Red said as he and his Mother went in to purchase some gifts and came out of the store with bags full of stuff. "Well shall we go meet with Lucas and his Dad."
Meanwhile in Town Lucas was walking with his Father Flint in Town looking at all of the Christmas Decorations as they reminded him of the times at Christmas that they along with Hinawa and Claus that they would all go through town during Christmas going shopping together.
"Are you thinking about your mother and Claus?" Flint asked as Lucas looked like he was deep in thought about something.
"Yeah, of course I am; and I really do miss those times."
"I can tell by that son, so tell me how are you liking your adventure with that Red, Boy?"
"Yeah of course I am, it is so much fun, I really do love Red like a big brother, he really does remind me of Claus, and his Mother is very nice, she almost reminds me of Mom in a way."
"HAHAHA, well i'm sure Hinawa and Claus are looking down at you and are very proud of what all you've accomplished here; like winning three Pokémon Gym Badges, and catching all of these Pokémon around this world; All I have to say, is that Red really has made you into a very strong and courageous, young man." Flint said as he patted Lucas's Blonde Hair as Lucas blushed with a smile.
"He is my Best Friend in the World, and the only friend I've ever made in my life, and we got to thinking, you and his Mother should see eachother more and maybe hook up." those words made Flint remove his Cowboy Hat and scratch his head in confusion.
"I'm not too sure if that can work, son, I mean I loved your Mother and could never love another woman even after she passed away; are you boys really sure that you want to have us together like that?"
"Of course, Dad, the thing is Red never even knew his Father when he was born, and his Mother has been raising him for over a decade, I think, he needs a Father Figure and I believe you should be the one to do just that; Red's Mom can be like a Mother Figure to me as well, she can take care of me, and be a new Mother Figure and give me the feeling that I have missed for years; and lastly Red, can be like Claus, he already reminds me of Claus, and the facet that we've had so many great adventures together, goes to show how much we care about eachother, and why I think we should all be a family together." Flint got to thinking about the idea and took a breath, than Lucas saw something in the corner of his eye, as he thought about what to get for Red. "Hey Dad, I want to get that for Red for Christmas."
"Oh ok, Son let's go pay for it and meet with your friend and his Mom and go do some stuff." Flint said as Lucas nodded as they went into the store and came out some time later with bags full of stuff that they purchased. "Let's go meet with Red and his Mother." Flint said as he and Lucas would make their way to an Ice skating Rink where they would meet Red and Violet there looking at the Ice Rink.
"Hey Bro, do you want to go Ice Skating?" Red offered as Lucas looked at the Ice and felt a bit nervous.
"I don't know, Red, it looks a lot more dangerous that Roller Skating." Red put his hand on Lucas shoulder as both Flint and Violet looked at the boys.
"We'll watch over you boys as you go skating." Flint said
"Just don't skate too far." Violet said in a motherly tone, as the boys put on some Ice Skates and made their way to the Ice Rink while holding hands and slowly shifted their Feet forward to keep themselves balanced on the ice. Flint and Violet were watching their sons skating together and started talking to eachother.
"Our boys have become really close to eachother, and they were thinking about the idea of all of us as a Family Together." Flint said as he was looking over at Violet
"I got to thinking about that and you know Red does need a Father figure in his life, he's never had one and I think it's about time that he had one."
"Lucas really misses what it's like to have both a Sibling and a Mother and I think since he really loves being around Red, than maybe it's time I moved on with my life and find somebody for Lucas to once again consider a Mother."
"That's really sweet and you know what, maybe we should talk to eachother more and since it's want the boys want for us for Christmas let's all have some Family Time Together, what do you say?" Asked Violet as Flint started to think about it and responded.
"Well, I am a little old for Ice Skating but if it means showing the Boys that we can all be a Family together, than let's do it." Flint said as he and Violet put on some Icce Skates and would join their sons in Ice skating as they parents met the sons on the Rink.
"We decided we should all spend some time together as a Family, so let's all make some Family Memories together, Boys?" Red and Lucas smiled as they would hold hands together, with Flint holding onto the wall, and Lucas's Hand, and Red holding Violet's hand on the edge, with Red and Lucas holding hands in the Center as the Surrogate Family all made a few laps on the Ice Rink, together. After making a few laps, Violet and Lucas began to lose their balance and so did Red and Flint as the Surrogate Family all fell on their butts on the Ice Rink, it was a bit of a painful fall but Red, Lucas, Violet, and Flint all laughed it off, realizing that this was a Family Moment that they were all going to share. After the four of them got back up to their Feet,; Flint looked at his watch and realized they all didn't have much more time to waste.
"What do you all say we head back to the Cabin, we can all go for a Sled Ride on the Hills, and Build snowmen, not to mention we got Gifts to wrap." Flint said as Red and Lucas nodded and smile as the boys along with Violet would all follow Flint and they would all make their way back to the Cabin.
"Well what do you say we all go for a Sled Ride down the Hills there?" Violet suggested looking at a nice hill that was safe to ride a sled on.
"Sure Mom, i'm down for that."
"Sure sounds like fun to me as well." Lucas also said as Flint nodded. As the Surrogate Family all went for a couple rides on a Family Sized Sled down the Hill a couple times; they also Built Snowmen while they were outside, well to be exact six of them, after Oak and Sycamore joined in on the Fun, along with having a Snow Ball Fight. After time had passed both Violet and Hinawa all saw that the skies were getting a bit darker and realized Dinner had to be cooked and Presents had to be wrapped. Red and Lucas stayed outside and were making Snow Angels together as the two looked up to the darkened Sky and began to see the Northern Lights in the Night Sky which really brought out the True Beauty of the Snow Covered Mountain Area.
"You know, it looks like our Plan Worked and we're all going to be one big Happy Family." Red said ad he was still waving his arms and legs in the snow making an Angel with it.
"Yeah, do you think they'll get Married?" Lucas asked as he kept making his angel as Red stopped for a moment and thought about it.
"HMMMMM; well that would be cool, if they did, and I hope the do, than we'd be Stepbrothers." Lucas stopped making his Angel and smiled at the idea.
"I would love for that to Happen and then we would all be a Family, Together Forever." Lucas said as he and Red crossed their Hands together reaching for the Snowy, Northern Light sky.
"Together Forever." Said Red, as Violet came outside.
"Red, Lucas it's time for Dinner Boys>"
"Well let's go Eat, Bro." Red said getting up and dusting the snow off of himself.
"i'll race you to the Kitchen." Lucas said as he Ran toward the Cabin.
"Hey No Fair, you got a head start." Red complained as he chased after Lucas, as Everybody was now Gathered in the Dining Room that was decorated Beautifully for Christmas Dinner with a Beautiful Turkey in the Middle and plenty of Food for the Surrogate Family to eat, as Professor Sycamore tapped a Glass with his fork to get Everyone's Attention.
"Can I have Everyone's Attention, Before we Eat, why don't we all say Grace first." Everyone all bowed their heads down and closed their eyes to say their Grace. "We would like to show our appreciation for this great food, and great gifts, and for our family and friends a Happy and Merry Holidays, we thank those who made it all possible." Sycamore said as everyone all opened their eyes and started eating their Christmas Dinner. after the Entire Surrogate Family all had their Fill of Turkey, Casseroles, and Dessert both red and Lucas were sitting together on the Couch near the Christmas Tree, full of wrapped presents underneath the tree, and with the Fireplace lit up; drinking some Hot Chocolate and Eating Christmas Cookies while Watching The Grinch. The Boys we're looking tired but we're having a conversation about there day.
"This has been some night, hasn't it Lucas?" Red asked taking a bite of his cookie.
"Yep, it sure has, I think are parents really are getting along a lot better than we thought of." Lucas said taking a sip of his Hot Chocolate.
"Hey Lucas I know Christmas is tomorrow but since we're alone, I feel like I should give you, your gift now." Red said as he put down his plate and took out a wrapped box with a bow on it and handed it to Lucas.
"To me, from You ok, i'll open it." said Lucas as he slowly tore open the wrapping paper off the box and opened the box holding what was a Necklace with a Pokeball on it with a message that Lucas Read out loud. "When you're in Battle, always wear this Necklace and always think of me, and realize that I will forever be in your Heart, Lucas my Best Friend on the entire Planet." Tears started to form in Lucas's Eyes as Red took a nearby tissue and wiped them from Lucas's Face. "That was so beautiful Red, i'll wear it with me forever." said Lucas as he hugged Red for a bit and realized since Red gave him his gift, Lucas thought it would be fair to give Red his as well; Lucas went over and picked up a wrapped up box with a bow on top of it and handed it to Red. "Here you go, Red."
"All right, thanks buddy, I can't wait to see what you got me." said Red as he started to tear apart the wrapping paper and opened the box and inside was a Similar Necklace with a Sun on it that had a message on it that Red, read out loud. "Sunny Days bring out the best of memories for the Best of Friends; Red and Lucas Best Friends and Brothers Forever." Red said and now tears formed on his eyes nearly making him cry as Lucas took a tissue and wiped Red's face with it. "That was so Beautiful, I'll always think of us, every time I wear this necklace." Red said as he put his necklace on as the boys finished their cookies and hot chocolate, as the boys were starting to fall asleep on the couch as Flint and Violet looked at the boys, sleeping on the couch.
"Awww, that is so adorable, Well it looks like we better take the kids up to bed now." Violet said as Flint looked at her and nodded.
"Well you're son is taller than mine, so what we'll do is, i'll carry Red, and you can carry Lucas." Flint said as he went over to pick up and carry Red in his arms; the movement caused Red to stir awake wondering what was going on.
"F...Flint?" Red asked a bit groggy.
"Yes, it's me son, don't worry i'm carrying you to bed." Flint said as he started carrying Red up the stairs with Violet following behind him carrying Lucas which made the blonde psychic boy, stir awake a bit."
"Huh, what's going on?" Lucas asked as he saw Violet carrying him.
"It's ok, sweetie, i'm carrying you to bed." Violet said as it made Lucas feel all warm and fuzzy as both Violet and Flint carried Lucas and Red to their bedroom that they were sharing and both laid them on their bed together; with both, single parents tucking their sons in to the bed, as Red and Lucas stirred up wondering what was going on.
"What's going on?" asked Red
"We're just tucking you boys in, tomorrow is Christmas after all." Violet said with a smile
"Our first, Christmas together as a Family, and it's already a memorable one for all of us, now Good night Boys, Sllep Tight, and Santa will be here, in a few hours." Flint said as Red smiled as did Lucas
"Goodnight Mom and Flint." Red said as Violet came over and kissed both Red and Lucas on their cheeks as she and Flint left their room as Lucas opened his eye a bit with Red cuddling him. "Good Night, Lucas, I love you, Sweet dreams, bro."
"Good Night, Red, I love you too, bro." Lucas said as both boys drifted off to sleep, as Christmas Morning would come and the Entire Family would all open their presents in the morning and all enjoy their first Christmas, all together as a family.
Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukah, Happy Kwanza, Happy New Year, and Happy Holidays to all, and Too all a Good Night.
