It’s not a well-known fact, but Maylene is deathly afraid of the dark. She’s not sure why, and she takes great delight in watching when her Lucario beats up dark-type pokémon, but she still can’t sleep without her Pecha berry shaped night light. She’s too scared to go train on Iron Island with Roark and Byron, because it’s in a cave, and last time Brawly invited her over to his gym, she passed out five minutes into their training session and woke up to find his Makuhita and Machop putting wet towels on her forehead while Meditite looked worried.
Brawly pats her on the back and says that she’ll grow up and get over it, and then takes her surfing.
They drink soda pop with a twist of lemon at the top, and Maylene decides that maybe, if he’ll watch over her, she can stand the dark a bit better.
I haven’t actually seen any fic with Maylene, or her appearance in the anime, so I’m doing this one Game-verse. And I hope LJ allows this one to pass…
