Son of Earth- Chapter 4Only a few hours later the sun peaked over the Tohjo mountain range. Dante, accustomed to waking at early hours, popped out of bed immediately. He quickly and quietly slipped into his clothes and shoes and opened his bedroom door. Lizzie had apparently not made it to her bedroom and was sleeping on the couch. For a short Dante considered leaving an apology, but then realized that he had no reason to be sorry. He was going to do this and if started doubting himself he'd never be able to get near the lab.He slipped out the front door and closed it ever so softly behind him with nothing more then a whispering click. The morning chill was still hanging in the year. Frost glazed the ground and the pale light cast a peaceful light upon the town. Dante was apparently the only one with villainous plans that morning as he couldn't see a single person anywhere in town. Feeling more confident that he doing the right thing he ran over to the lab. The front door was locked but he'd expected that.
Son of Earth- Chapter 2When you think of Johto, you think of sprawling Goldenrod, historical Ecruteak, the majestic peaks of Mt. Silver, the mysterious Dragon Clan of Blackthorn. You think of the dangerous Whirl Islands, the lighthouse of Olivine, the gigantic Lake of Rage. When you think of Johto you think of all of these places and more.You do not think of quiet little New Bark Town on the southern coast.When Dante could see the rooftops of the village from his spot on the rails, he jumped onto a branch of a nearby tree and climbed down. When he was little his father would take him bug catching in the Viridian Forest and Dante had gotten really good at tree climbing. Of course, this tree was taller and older, but Dante managed to make it to the ground. The canopy so far above his head now blocked out much of the sunlight.Dante walked for a few minutes in silence, lost in the thoughts of his journey and the pokemon he wanted to raise and how he felt they could be trained best. He knew he wanted an Abra.
Son of Earth- Chapter 1Yesterday had been an ordinary day. The sun rose. The wind blew. The Pokemon ran through the grass outside the house. And Dante Argento would stand in the doorway and look in the direction of the Johto region and think back to the night three years prior when his father had left him for that region, never to return. Like every day before that Dante would clench his fist and grit his teeth and shout loudly that he was not weak and that he would some day become the greatest pokemon trainer in the world. Then Arthur would walk by, look at him, and then Dante would spend the rest of the day staring in the direction of Johto.Dante Argento was not an ordinary eleven year old boy. He had not pokemon, he had no family, and he had a secret he could never tell anyone, a secret that constantly tore at his heart and caused to rage and cry. Dante Argento was the son of one of the most wanted men in the history of the Kanto Region, Giovanni Argento, the once mighty head of the nefarious Team Rocket
