The next morning went like normal. Sulfur wakes up and makes himself some breakfast, using his fire powers. John took the day to relax still while Will seemed to be preparing for another solo mission. Sulfur should probably go with Will, try to get to know him better before going through with John's plan. As soon as Sulfur finished his breakfast, he goes to Will.
“Um, Will? Do you have a moment?” Sulfur asked.
"I'm about to go on a mission but sure…” Will said. “What do ya need?"
“Last night, John told me you were having troubles looking for love.” Sulfur said. “Do you have a crush on someone?”
"No...and it's my personal life…” Will said, growling slightly. “You two had no right to know... I'm going on my mission..."
Will sighs upset and walks off.
‘Sheesh! So much for getting to know him better…’ Sulfur thought to himself.
"You wanna come?" Will stopped to ask.
“Sure.” Sulfur said.
This might be the perfect opportunity for Sulfur to get to know Will better and show him his fire control.
"We're just looking for an item luckily." Will said.
They headed to the dungeon, which was a bit dark. Sulfur surrounds himself in his fire to provide light for him and Will. The Lucario was impressed by this, knowing that he actually took his advice on how to control his fire.
“Let's hope this isn't heavily guarded.” Sulfur said.
"It's one of the smaller dungeons" Will told him.
Sulfur and Will search for the item in question.After a bit of searching, he sat to take a break. Sulfur remembers he cooked with his fire this morning and had some cooked sausages in his pocket.
“Here.” Sulfur said as he handed the sausages to Will. “You might be hungry.”
Will took them and ate them.
“I also saw when you were using your aura, you were distracting yourself.” Sulfur said.
"I was just practicing..." Will told him. "Aura can be used in many ways. Even some I might not even be aware of."
This whole scenario is similar to what Will told Sulfur about how to use his fire for other uses than combat.
"Anyways... Anything else ya wanna ask?” Will wondered.
“No...not really…” Sulfur said.
"Well, let’s continue with the mission." Will said.
Sulfur and Will continue searching for the item. Will stretches while they look around.
Sulfur finally finds the item, and hides it in his pocket so that he could get more info from Will.
"Any luck?" Will asked.
“Nope.” Sulfur lied.
“This is gonna take forever." Will groaned. “You're lucky I brought camping supplies in case we are here overnight...Let's take another break."
He sighs sitting...This was Sulfur’s chance to just get basic info, and to not get too deep or personal.
“So, when you're upset, do you find ways to get your mind off of whatever's gotten you mad?” Sulfur asked.
"I mostly meditate." Will said. "Or go for a walk to take my mind off it."
‘I wonder...what does he want in a woman?’ Sulfur asked himself. ‘Personality wise?’
"If you are curious in my personal life that much…” Will said, slightly upset. “I just want a girl who wants to just relax and take things slow. Let’s just find the item and get home."
“Well...to tell you the truth, I...had it in my pocket.” Sulfur said, taking the item out of his pocket.
“If ya wanted to just hang out just ask next time." Will said.
When Sulfur and Will entered back in the guildhouse, Sulfur returns the item to the Guildmaster and heads to John.
“Alright. I got everything I need to help Will out on his date.” Sulfur said.
"Alright, it's almost night.” John said. “Lets head to the bathrooms and dye you."
Inside the male's bathroom, Sulfur dyed his front fur while John helped him with the back.
"Hmm? What color is this again?" John asked.
“Dark brown.” Sulfur said.
"So you're gonna go for a lopunny sort of look?" John said. "Alright."
Soon, night comes and Sulfur takes a look at his new form. Afterwards, Sulfur starts to see Will out with another female. It appears to be none other than a female Excadrill. He sighs though as it seems he wasn't interested and ended up thanking her for trying and started walking off. This was her chance to get to him, so she took the chance.
“Hey. Will.” Sulfur said.
Being a female had a special per Sulfur didn’t reognise, as his voice was feminine.
"Huh...? Um do I know you?" Will asked.
“No. You don't.” Sulfur said, seeing that it was working so far. “But I know you need some comfort by your side.”
"I guess…” Will said. “Are you new in the guild or something?"
“Yes. I'm entirely new.” Sulfur said. “A friend of mine told me you were having romantic troubles.”
Will confesses that he was, in fact, having romantic issues.
“Well, I'll be more than happy to help out.” Sulfur said, realizing what he's getting himself into.
"Look... You seem like a nice gal... But I don't know..." Will said, doubting himself. "I mean I got turned down by the other one so... Guess I got nothing to lose..."
Now the problem was this; what if he did fall in love with the female version of Sulfur? She'd eventually be exposed for what she was. But she didn’t seem to care, as she only wanted to see Will happy and confident again.
"Look... I'll go out with you but don't force yourself if you don't like me..." Will said.
“I won't. I won't.” Sulfur said.
Sulfur takes Will out to a lake to take a view at the moon's reflection. They both seemed to like the view, as Sulfur tells him that that’s the reason she enjoys the night skies and that her mind wanders at night.
"What do you think about?" Will asked.
“I think about wanting to snuggle with a man who wants to do the same with me.” Sulfur said, making Will blush slightly. “And if he's able to take me on a few successful dates, I'll give him a special treat at his place.”
"That's kinda a bit interesting.” Will said.
‘It's working.’ Sulfur thought to himself. ‘I just need to keep this up.’
Will was starting to fall for her but it didn't look like it on Sulfur's end. That is, until he gently put his paw on her hand.
“Wow. Looks like you must've gotten those thoughts of sadness out of you.” Sulfur said.
"Y-yea..." Will said, blushing faintly. "Thanks for coming out..."
“Not a problem.” Sulfur said.
She was surprised to see it actually worked out, though it was clear Will was falling in love with Sulfur despite not knowing it was him.
"Um so want to do anything else..?" Will asked.
“Are you...hungry?” Sulfur asked.
Will replied that he could eat, and let Sulfur pick the location in question. Sulfur takes Will to a Japanese themed restaurant where a Dewgong happened to be working. Soon, after they finish eating, Sulfur thanks Will for the date and kisses his cheek.
“That was so much fun.” Sulfur said.
"Y-yea…” Will said. “So um... Would you like to go out again sometime? Oh wait. I never got your name?"
“Sure. Oh, and call me Laura.” Sulfur said.
"Laura... Thats a nice name." Will said.
The two walked off in their separate ways. Sulfur heads back to John to tell him how it all worked out.
“Well, John. It worked out surprisingly well. Although, now he's fallen in love with me…” Sulfur said. “I'd probably have to keep up the act for the rest of my life...way to go, Sulfur…”
"What if he ever wants to see you during the day?" John said.
“He's going to find out that it's actually me instead of Laura.” Sulfur said. “Also, I'm only a female at night. Did you forget? I don't want Will to find out what happened to me.”
"I mean, you're gonna have to either find a way to become permanently female to keep Him happy or tell him the truth.” John said.
“Well...you're right...I'll tell him about what's happened to me tomorrow.” Sulfur said. “For now, let's wash this fur dye off.”
