Lucas McMillan
On the Island (Day 1)

Lucas smiled, his headphones pumping music into his ears as he looks out over the front of the S.S. Tidal. He had departed from Stern's Shipyard only a few days before, and he could already see the island on the horizon. Ace was asleep on Lucas's bunk, but Aaron was standing next to Lucas. He was ready for anything. The first thing he was gonna do was get to his dorm and set up his game system and do some training on his laptop. Lucas smiled as he imagined fighting someone new on the island. He looked down at Aaron and Aaron chirped back. This is gonna be great, Lucas thought, looking ahead.
Lucas soon reached the island. He waved as Captain Stern took the Tidal back toward the Hoenn Region. Lucas put Ace and Aaron back into their Poke balls and started wandering around.
Frodo: I can't do this, Sam.
Sam: I know. It's all wrong. By rights we shouldn't even be here. But we are. It's like in the great stories Mr. Frodo. The ones that really mattered. Full of darkness and danger they were, and sometimes you didn't want to know the end. Because how could the end be happy. How could the world go back to the way it was when so much bad happened? But in the end, it's only a passing thing, this shadow. Even darkness must pass. A new day will come. And when the sun shines it will shine out the clearer. Those were the stories that stayed with you. That meant something. Even if you were too small to understand why. But I think, Mr. Frodo, I do understand. I know now. Folk in those stories had lots of chances of turning back only they didn’t. Because they were holding on to something.
Frodo: What are we holding on to, Sam?
Sam: That there’s some good in this world, Mr. Frodo. And it’s worth fighting for.
