Red Poké looks up at the dim night sky with a hint of fear in his eyes. "Blue...." he speaks softly to her. Blue Poké nods. A baby, wrapped up in yellow blankets, lays in her arms. "Stella" Red speaks softly to the baby. His voice cracks with sorrow. "You are a wonderful human being. You are going to change the world someday. But no. Not today. Someday. I- I love you, Stella." Red starts crying. "Zapdos!" Blue calls to the sky. Zapdos swoops down from the sky, picking up the baby in its beak. "Take good care of her! Find her a good home!" Blue waves up at the night sky biding her child farewell.
