4: Battle Subway

This drabble is dedicated to my beta reader, barcelona107. He's a railfan and all which explains the mention of trains in here, hehe. x]

And on another note, this is canon to Perfection, and yeah, it's expected that this will happen, but the question is how? Hehe, that'll happen in the future chapters.

4. Battle Subway

...

...

"This is the last stop of the battle subway. Are you kids going back to Nimbasa City or...?"

"I'm kinda hungry. Ya wanna go back now, Ruby?"

Ruby took a deep breath, gritting his teeth, focusing his attention at his beautiful wife. He blinked his eyes, as he slowly bobbed his head, nodding at her question. "Let's go."

It had been a month since both have exchanged their vows to spend the rest of their lives together as husband and wife. Besides exploring the four islands of the Alola region as a part of their honeymoon, Ruby decided to take Sapphire to the Unova region to explore the vast growing cities like Castelia, Driftveil and Nimbasa Cities.

Both participated in the Battle Subway as partners and, as expected from their titles and their skills, both managed to defeat the Emmet and Ingo also known the Battle Subway bosses.

What Sapphire didn't know, however, was the fact that Ruby just couldn't stop smiling and looking at her at every activity they were having in the foreign region.

He had to admit. Her enthusiasm to practice some of the region's culture, participating into its activities or just simply trying the exclusive food it is offering never ceased to amaze him.

She was just simply amazing and considerate at every thing they do in the region, and just by being with her was already making him contented at their trip.

"I..." Sapphire closed her eyes as she gently opened her mouth to let out a soft yawn.

Ruby snapped out of his thoughts, looking at his beautiful wife.

The smile on his lips grew wider at the sight. She looked so cute whenever she yawns. "Are you tired?"

"A..." Sapphire nodded her head, her left fang sticking out from her top lip, making Ruby's heart thump faster.

Every time he looked at her felt like the first time he had laid his eyes on her. She was just so beautiful.

So... cute...

"A little." Sapphire finished leaning her head on his right shoulder blade. "Are we... there..." She let out another cute yawn as her husband wrapped his right arm around her waist, pulling her closer to him, closing ever so little gap between their bodies. "...yet...?"

Ruby released a soft chuckle, placing a kiss on her head. "Not yet. Just rest for a while. I'll tell you when the train reaches our destination."

Sapphire nodded her head gently, placing her right arm on his chest. Not a moment later, her eyes were starting to get heavier. Slowly, she closed her eyes, letting slumber took over her as the train provided a constant acceleration for the travelling husband and wife to reach their destination.

Ruby smiled once she felt her weak grip on the fabric of his shirt. He caught her hand, before it falls onto his lap, and linked their fingers together.

He pulled her closer, now letting her sit on his lap. His other arm wraps around her waist as his lips made its way onto her lips.

He slowly and gently pressed his soft lips against hers as he too, fall into slumber with his arms still wrapped around her in a protective hug.

Thank Arceus they were alone on the train together. He wouldn't be able to hug and kiss her if some random stranger was with their ride back to the city.

"Kids, the ride is over."

"Ruby..."

"Hey, your girl is talking to you. HEY!"

The voice caused Ruby's eyes to open widely. He blinked his eyes for a moment, registering what just happened. His arms didn't budge from its previous position, however, making Sapphire more flustered and embarrassed from their current position.

She loved it, no doubt, but doing it literally in front of the train conductor was absolutely embarrassing and a different case.

"What happened?" He asked, not noticing the snickering train conductor on his left side.

"Ya can let go of me now." Sapphire didn't make an eye contact with her husband. Instead she gently placed her hands on his and removed his arms around her waist.

"It literally took me thirty minutes to wake you lovebirds up."

A shiver ran through Ruby's spine as he jerked his head to his left. His eyes widened a bit from shock.

Okay, how long was he asleep and how long was their ride?

"It's a good thing your girlfriend... uh... should I say fiancée because of the ring? Anyway," The tall, skinny, Caucasian train conductor let out a cough, crossing his arms across his chest. "I managed to wake your girl first. Now if you two excuse me there are some new challengers in the Battle Subway and the trip can't start unless you two lovebirds flirt somewhere else."

"Right." Ruby said, his tone was flustered from the train conductor's words, and stood up once Sapphire offered her hand to him. He grabbed it, linked their fingers together and apologized to the train conductor. The lovebirds later took their leave, both too were flustered and embarrassed to speak a word.

Well, that was one pleasant ride they had until those new challengers and that train conductor ruined it. How the charmer hoped no one heard him sleep talk at how beautiful his wife was.

He hardly sleep talked, really. He just felt like he did since he was absolutely comfortable from their previous position.

Sapphire's cheeks miraculously and thankfully returned to its normal temperature. She was glad that's over with. Although she couldn't believe out of all the places they'd been to, her husband has to sleep talk when the train conductor just woke her up after his constant tapping on the pole, just in time for Ruby to say some words to her.

"Stay..." The charmer said, sleep talking, and pulled his wife closer to him. It intensified the blush on Sapphire's cheeks. "I love you..."

Thankfully the train conductor only let out a soft 'aww' at her husband's words, but to Sapphire, it made her flustered and embarrassed. Although Ruby could say it to her anytime whenever they were in a private place where it would be just the two of them.

She released a sigh.

Yep.

This was going to be a long day.
