Chapter 12: Riding the Surf

"What do you mean the ferry's not running?"

Ash and his friends sat in the ferry terminal, trying to get the first ferry to Akala Island. Lillie and Ilima rubbed their eyes sleepily, annoyed by how early Ash and Professor Kukui had woken them. Ash was trying to get their tickets, while Kukui was on the phone with his wife. The lady at the terminal chuckled nervously.

"I'm sorry, sir, but the ferry broke down. We don't know when it'll be fixed."

Ash dropped his head in sorrow, feeling as if his whole world had came crashing down.

"Okay, thanks anyway."

Ash slumped his way over to some chairs as Professor Kukui finished his phone call.

"Great, see ya then. Love ya to, honey."

He then made his way over to the trio of teenagers.

"Great news, guys. I just got off the phone with Burnett, and she agreed to give us a tour of her lab later this week. She works at the Dimensional Research Lab in Heahea City, and thinks she's close to making a big break through."

"Sounds great Professor, but we still need to get there, and the ferry's down. They said it wont be running for a while."

Professor Kukui rubbed his chin in thought.

"Hmm, that's a problem. Wait, I've got it! Everybody, use Agility and follow me!"

Before anyone can stop him, Kukui rushed out of the building into Hau'oli City. The trio shrugged before following.

They found Kukui at Big Wave Beach, staring out at the sea. He waved them over enthusiastically.

"Hey guys, check this out, WOO!"

Sharing exasperated looks, the trio ran over to them.

"So what's your big idea, Professor Kukui? How are we getting to Akala Island?"

"With that. Take a glance over there!"

The three teenagers glanced out to the Melemele Sea to see a group of Mantine surfing along the waves. But what really surprised them was that people were standing and riding on them! Professor Kukui chuckled at their surprised looks.

"That's our ride. Time to introduce you guys to Mantine Surfing, Woo!"

Ash's eyes lit up in excitement.

"Oh yeah, lets do this!"

"Pika Pika!"

Ilima nodded.

"Hmm, this should be interesting. I cant say I've ever ridden on a Mantine before."

Lillie however, grew hesitant.

"Surfing? On a Mantine? Is it safe? I mean, aren't wild Mantine dangerous? What it..."

Professor Kukui put a reassuring hand on her shoulder.

"Don't worry, Lillie. These Mantine are trained and perfectly safe. Besides, I would never do anything that would put you in any danger, would I?"

"Well, I guess not."

Ash put a hand on her other shoulder, helping her to calm down.

"Don't worry, Lillie. We'll be right there beside you."

Lillie smiled, trying to hide her blush.

"Alright, so its settled then. Come on, lets get you guys in gear."

A few minutes later, all four were wearing swim wear and protective gear. Ash, Kukui, and Ilima were wearing simple swim trunks, while Lillie wore a one piece swim suit. An instructor came up to them.

"Alright, lets go over the basics. First, we need to work on your balance..."

An hour passed, and the three of them were clear to surf out to Akala Island. However, while Ash and Ilima were quick learners and doing flips in the air, Lillie was lying on her stomach clinging onto her Mantine for dear life.

"Don't go so fast, don't go so fast, don't go so...AAAAAAAAAAH!"

As the Mantine went over a large wave, Lillie lost her grip and went flying. Before anyone could say anything, Ash directed his Mantine over the wave, catching Lillie bridal style and landing with a big splash.

"You alright, Lillie?"

Lillie nodded, too shocked to even speak as Ash set her down.

"Come on, you can ride with me the rest of the way."

"Y-you don't mind, do you?"

"Of course not, don't we Pikachu?"

"Pikachu!"

"Besides, the Professor said we should be there in a few minutes. Just hold on tight, Kay?"

Lillie nodded, gripping his waist.

10 minutes later, the Quartet arrived at Heahea Beach. The four of them stretched their limbs out, ready for new adventures.

"Alright gang, lets conquer this island!"

"Pika Pi!

His companions laughed at his antics as he rushed up the steps to Heahea City proper, knowing that no matter what great adventures lay ahead.
