The two had slept through the night, embracing each other the whole time. They were both so happy to finally have someone to hold, never being able to sleep to well before because of it. The sun began to shine through the window in their room, slowly beating down on them. Normally the pokemon of the guild were woken up early by a Herdier, usually for a morning meeting or announcements from their guild master, but these two still had a few more minutes of cuddle time. They really wanted to enjoy it for as long as they could, because soon they wouldn’t be able too.
The guild master had an assistant named Connie, a starly who was often known to be a rule stickler. If anyone was caught stepping out of line, they would be quickly put back into place. The starly had also been known to get on to couples for “Shaming the guild by showing public affection.” While something like that does sound justified, this came down to any form of affection, down to paw holding. Knowing this, the two laid in bed together, holding each other close as long as they could, up until the dog pokemon arrived to wake them up, giggling at the two love birds he saw.
They got out of bed and got ready for the day. Alester set his glasses on his nose and put on his hat, tucking his ears down under it. While the Audino put on his jacket, zipping it up, leaving a bit at the top unzipped to reveal his necklace, a mega stone hung around his neck. They gave each other one last kiss, embracing again for a moment before sighing and leaving their room, locking the door behind them.
They made their way outside, joining the crowd that was standing and listening to the starly. They were pretty bored listening to him, droning on and on about hard work and getting things done. They had heard this all before, being with the guild for a long time. Alester especially was bored out of his mind. All he could think about was the cutie standing next to him, he couldn’t wait for this day to end so they could cuddle some more.
“This is so boring…” Aleseter muttered, struggling to keep his eyes open.
“I know right? I think it’s almost over. Just get through it.” Alex said with a little smile, giving the Sylveon a pat. Alester giggled a bit and tried to focus on it, thankfully it was nothing important, just the usual “Work hard” speech. The crowd cleared out finally, everyone heading to complete their work or go about their business. Team purity made their way to one of the bulletin boards, looking over it for a good job.
They always had a hard time finding a good job to do. Being an experienced team, it was often seen as wrong to take the really easy jobs. Many beginner teams were on the lookout for those jobs, so they had to make sure not to steal work from them.
“Do we have to work today? You know we’re just gonna end up with an easy job and be done in an hour.” The Sylveon asked as he looked over the board, he was really bored and annoyed.
“You know if we don’t take a job we won’t have money for the week.” Alex said to him smugly, nudging his side.
“I know! Geeze, what’s it take to get a day off around here?”
“A life threatening injury” The audino said smugly, winking down at the pouty sylveon.
“Fair enough. Just find a job and lets get going.” The Sylveon said with a huff, rolling his eyes. They eventually settled on a job, a simple task: go save somebody who collapsed in the mountains. Nothing they hadn’t dealt with before. They went to get some breakfast at the cafeteria before leaving, the two both got a big plate of berries. They ate them happily, occasionally feeding each other playfully and giggling at each other.
“Why are you so adorable?” The sylveon asked with a smile.
“Why are you?” The audino asked back. He giggled at him and booped his nose, making a little boop sound when he did.
The two were about to lean in to kiss each other, but were interrupted by certain starly walking in. Thankfully they both noticed and quickly pulled away. Connie just gave them a confused look before going back to her business. They were silent for the rest of breakfast, cleaning their plates and then getting the hell out of there. Both of them let out a sigh of relief after they rounded the corner.
“I hate this guild sometimes.” Alester said with a groan, looking back as they walked.
“Same here, but hey we’d probably get in trouble for acting lovey dovey in town too.”
“I guess that’s true. Let’s just head out then, better focus on our job for the day.” The sylveon adjusted his glasses, pushing them up his snout in a badass way.
“Right! Time to get to work!” The audino said confidently, gripping the mega stone around his neck. Whenever he felt strong emotions of any kind he liked to grip it tightly in his paw, it gave him a confidence boost, or a sense of comfort if he needed it. They made their way out into the forest, walking along the path and enjoying the gentle breeze on the way to the mountains. Today seemed really peaceful, hopefully it would stay that way for the two.
