Mark threw the covers aside and jumped out of bed, he ran to the calendar and saw that it was the day he had been waiting for. "Wohoo!" He yelled with a gleeful jump. "They're coming, they're finally coming!" He quickly got dressed in a tee shirt and pair of baggy pants before rushing downstairs, at the bottom of the stairs there was a door and at the foot of the door was a large cardboard box, a huge smile crept across his face as he ripped open the box. After removing the packaging he found five shiny red topped balls, he stuffed the Pokeballs into one of his many pockets along with his other trainer gear.
After having breakfast he stepped outside and became his usual shy self...Pallet town...A cool breeze filled his lungs just as it had every other day for the last few years, he had spent all his life here only traveling as far as the second nearest city, and now. Now he was about to start the journey of a life time and it all began with that letter he had recived what felt like a millennium ago...Collect every gym badge. Mark was going to do it, but first he was going to see the elite four and red, he was going to see the final hurdle and one day he was going to beat them.
He made his way to the stage that was under construction, the elite four would arrive soon so he decided to get a good seat and wait for them to arrive. In the mean time he took out his radio and headphones before tuning into his favourite station.
