You’re In Love With Him But He Likes Your Best Friend: Part 2

A/N: This is a filler chapter. Meaning, this is much shorter than part 1. Do not feel dishearted, there will be a longer, more detailed part 3. 

Part 1

Masterlist linked in bio.

“Are you ever going to speak to me?”

Y/n freezes as she hears Harry’s voice ask her the question she’s been dreading to answer.

It’s been two weeks since she’s heard that voice. It may sound rougher now, more stern and harsh than it normally is as it growls behind her at the counter of Lexi’s bar, but it’s still the first time she’s heard it in two weeks.

After her sober confessions to a very tipsy, slumberous Harry, Y/n had to understand what it truly meant to move on.

At first, she thought she would still be able to be around him as she searched for ways to rid her feelings. She distracted herself, mostly. She would interact more with Savannah than she would Harry, and even started picking up new habits whenever she felt her emotions creeping in. Anything that reminded her of him was disregarded entirely so that the only time he was able to consume her thoughts was whenever he was near her.

For the first couple weeks, she was holding up quite well, considering the circumstances. She was able to contain her emotions and take her mind off of the raging heartache that kept burning in her chest.

But it wasn’t much long after that night when Savannah and Harry finally became official, and if Y/n wasn’t anguished before, she surely was then. She was forced to witness the transition of their relationship in hindsight. What was once casual flirting and innocent touches turned into secretive giggles and loving hand gestures.

It was as if her heart broke all over again. What seemed to be almost completely mended was destructed all at once. The chase between Harry and Savannah was over, and reality set in that Harry was happy and in love with someone that wasn’t Y/n.

Watching them together was Y/n’s most devastating nightmare, and the thought of that alone meant she couldn’t mentally handle being alone anymore. With all of the emotions built up inside of her, being alone for Y/n meant enduring the pain and suffering she didn’t want to feel anymore. She just wanted it all to end, everything.

The earliest hours of the morning wrecked her the most. With only the moon illuminating the room and the radio silence throughout her house gave Y/n no choice but to be alone with her thoughts. She wasn’t loved, and no matter how many nights she’s tried to convince herself that this wasn’t the end, it was.

She had to let Harry go, completely this time. She gave up on him entirely because she couldn’t keep loving him when he didn’t love her. Not anymore, not like that.

She keeps her back to him as he heaves heavy breaths, eyes sending daggers and teeth clenched from his crippling frustration. 

“It’s Thursday, I see,” Harry grumbles before giving her the chance to answer, jaw locked as his fingers grip harshly around a stray, unfinished glass of alcohol. “You never work Thursdays. ’S this where your Friday shifts went?”

There’s an unpleasantly rough tone in his voice that makes Y/n’s breath hitch in her throat. She’s never witnessed this side of him, filled with anger and exasperation. He’s always been so soft and gentle, never having the heart to speak down to someone. But here he is, eyes dark with anger and words spewing venomously from his lips.

And as much she hates to admit it, she can’t blame him for being so angry with her. She knows she means the most to him—even if it’s not in a romantic sense—she’s become such an important part of his life. Ever since they met, she took in the truth about his past, understood the feelings and thoughts he’s carried all through his years, and was able to provide him with anything she was able to when he needed her most. She was one of the very few people he trusted and felt most comfortable with in his life. She was irreplaceable, he’d always tell her, nobody could compare to her. She meant everything.

And then, she left him. She distanced herself so far away from him until it was as if she was never apart of his life. She ignored him and all his attempts to reach out to her again. It hurt her tremendously, knowing that what they had together was completely and utterly helpless, but she never questioned how Harry felt about it. She did what was easiest for her and never thought about it twice. She left him so that he can be happy, but as he stands so tensely and confused before her, she can’t help but blame herself what’s happened between them.

She nods her head softly, still refusing to look up at him as she gathers all the used glasses in front of her, making herself seem distracted so she doesn’t have to make much effort into speaking to him.

“I—uh, yeah. Friday nights were getting hectic and I couldn’t keep up with the late hours. I thought Savannah told you.”

It’s a lie. A shitty, impulsive lie that Harry almost finds humorous. Of course, Y/n switched her Friday night shift. She felt as if she had no choice. She couldn’t bare to look at him with Savannah another goddamn second, and he thought of spending Friday nights with Harry without being alone with him and going to the 24-hour movie theater together was enough to make her sick to her stomach.

“She did,” he clicks his tongue, eyes narrowing as he watches her scramble around the bar, “didn’t have to, though. I knew she was lying.”

Y/n’s actions halt for a moment, a feeling of dread flowing in her veins before she goes back to cleaning off the bar, disregarded his statement completely.

Harry knows Y/n’s been avoiding him, she hasn’t exactly made it as subtle as she thought. Their entire friendship changed, and Harry knows he wasn’t the one ruining it.

The morning after Y/n drove Harry back from the bar, all he could really remember clearly was falling asleep with Y/n. There were other bits he remembered, but that was really the only moment that came to him when he woke up. And he was confused when he woke up alone because, in all honesty, he was looking forward to waking up next to her. It was all his drunk mind thought of, and that terrified him.

When Y/n started distancing herself from him, Harry kept wondering what he had done wrong. She was fine with Savannah, keeping up with their lives as usual. But she was different with Harry—closed off, in a way, and it made him feel something he’s never felt in his life before.

He was confused, to say the least. Because when he was kissing down the bare chest of the woman of his dreams, he couldn’t stop daydreaming about Y/n, and how he hasn’t heard her voice and how he hasn’t felt her in so long.

He had Savannah wrapped around his finger, yet he still felt as if everything about it was wrong. He changed when Y/n left him, because even when he was around the most loving company, he felt alone.

He was helpless. As much as he tried to love Savannah, Y/n was always in the back of his head. She was there, all the time, trapped in his mind with no escape route. 

At first, he was confused—upset and lost without Y/n. He didn’t know life without her would feel so lonely, so empty and incomplete. It was strange, not knowing how to live his life without her. He’d never expected her disappearance to be such a hindrance to him, but it was. Oh, how it was.

Then, he was angry—angry because as many times as he tried to get her to speak to him again, she never came back. She was gone, forever.

Now, he’s hurt. So damaged by her leaving his side, so incomplete and destroyed without her with him anymore. His heart is heavy with sadness and he couldn’t let himself feel this way anymore. 

He needs her, no matter how wrong and pathetic it sounds, he needs her. 

“So you gonna tell me why you’ve been avoiding me, or am I gonna have to force it out of you?” he seethes, nose flaring as he tries to steady his uneven breath.

Y/n shakes her head ignorantly, a flash on innocence in her eyes as she does so. But she damn knows well what he’s talking about, and her oblivion drives him crazy.

“I don’t—I don’t know what you’re talking ab—“

“Oh, fuck off with it!” Harry spits, slamming his closed fist down on the wooden counter.

He doesn’t seem to care about how sudden the bar falls silent, or the glisten of fear in Y/n’s eyes when she finally looks up at him. All he can seem to care about is how much pain he feels, all over. All he can think about is how now, after the last two weeks of not being able to understand why he cares so goddamn much, he’s finally able to feel some sense of sanity being in front of her now.

“You know what you’re doing to me, Y/n! You know damn fucking well what you’re fucking doing and—“

“Harry, please.” Y/n whispers and she isn’t sure as to whether or not she’s begging him to lower his voice or begging for him to understand.

“And it’s not fair!” he cries out, tears of frustration overflowing from his eyes as he grips tightly onto his hair.

His breaking point is approaching, he feels it. He feels it with every breath he takes and every word that emits from his mouth. His heart twists and breaks as he expresses every feeling that’s been consuming him for the past two weeks. He needs her to know what she’s doing to him, needs her to know how he feels in this moment.

“I did nothing to you and you keep pushing me away and that’s not fair because I don’t know how to live without you. Isn’t that something?! I don’t know what to do without you, and you know that!”

Suddenly, his head falls in his hands as he begins to sob. Complete heart-wrenching sobs, making his chest tight and breathing shallow.

Y/n reaches her hand out for him, her fingers clasping harshly around his wrist. Her own eyes start to brim with tears as she watches him sob below her, his body shaking with undying cries. She swallows harshly when he grabs ahold of her hand, bringing her palm against his forehead. His lips reach to kiss her wrist softly, quickly refraining from keeping them there longer.

To touch her, for the first time, is every answer he needs. She’s the only one to make him feel this way—she’s the only one to drive him to the brink of insanity and resurface him back to clarity. She has power over him he never understood until now, after he’s lost her.

“I don’t know why it hurts this much, Y/n,” He cries, his eyes squeezing shut as he inhales sharply, “I’ve never been more confused in my life.”

She chokes on her cries as she nods her head softly, her free hand reaching up to rake her fingers through his hair. Her lips shake from their craving to touch him, watching as he weakens beneath her. 

She’s missed him, in the most desperate of ways. She’s missed every part of him, and every atom in her body yearned to feel him again. Whether it was to feel the warmth of him from a distance or to feel his skin ignite her, she wanted every part of him against her. If she wasn’t with him, she was missing him, and craving him with every breath she took. 

Her lips press tentatively to his forehead, her breath fanning through his hair as she does so. The action is quick, leaving just as quickly as it comes, but it carries sentimental meaning for the both of them.

Harry frowns, his heart thumping in his chest. He looks up into her eyes, filled with concern and sanity as she maps his features.

“It’s been ever since me and Savannah got together.” He mumbles, eyes watching her face as it pales slightly at his words. “You haven’t spoken to me since.”

Her eyes flutter shut as he speaks, finding it completely pointless to try and make him believe otherwise. He deserves to know, one way or another, and even if it’s now, she feels like she’s already lost him. There isn’t much she’d be losing now, anyways. He was never hers.

“Please leave, Harry.” She whispers.

She backs away from him, her touch leaving him was like a gunshot to his chest. It’s a feeling he’s felt all too much that he can’t bare to feel again. 

His heart breaks as he watches her begin to cry, her usual glistening eyes now filled with tears of sorrow. He shakes his head, squeezing his eyes shut as he tentatively takes a step closer to her.

He’s desperate, and he doesn’t care how weak he seems. He’s desperate to see where he’s missed it all along, to know how long he’s been making her feel this way. He’ll never forgive himself for all the pain he’s caused her, for all her nights alone when all she wanted was to be with him.

He could have done so much to change this. If he had just listened to his heart from the beginning, this would all be different now. If he hadn’t been so blind, they would both be happy right now.

“Love, I—“

“Don’t.” she whispers, her voice cracking as she speaks, “Please, don’t.“

She isn’t exactly sure what she’s saying—isn’t quite sure what she’s begging him not to do. Maybe it’s the nickname he’s always called her that makes her stomach twist a bit more, or how he’s trying to make her feel better that makes her eyes sting with a fresh new wave of tears, or how he looks at her now the way he never did before that makes her throat tighten around a sob. Whatever it is that makes her beg, she can’t  handle it anymore.

“I’m trying, Y/n,” He whispers, “please.”

“Please just—“ her eyes flutter shut as she speaks, “just leave me alone.”

Harry lets out an unsteady breath, his green eyes brimmed with red as he watches her begin to sob. 

He nods, because he can’t let himself keep doing this to her. If he keeps trying with her in her current state of mind, she won’t be able to think properly. She’ll be a wreck, more so than she is now, and he can’t find it in his heart to do that. Even if it means fighting for her.

“It’s not worth it, you know.” He whispers, his eyes staring lovingly into hers, “Being with her, it’s not worth it if it means losing you.”

Five Times Spencer Reid Got Relationship Advice, and the One Time He Didn’t Need It (Spencer Reid x Reader)

Request done for @redrookrising who wanted “an imagine about Spencer going around to different members of the BAU, asking them how to ask the reader out” Unbeta’d! Hopefully you guys enjoy it! 

“Rossi, can I ask you something?” Spencer said leaning on the doorway of Rossi’s office.

“Come in. Sit.” Rossi said, putting the files down.

“So, you know Y/N, the new girl in IA? The one Kevin brought over last week?”

“Ah, yes. She’s a pretty one.” Dave said, recalling with a smile.

“I know it’s frowned upon by the bureau, but I thought since you didn’t say anything when Garcia and Kevin were together that I’d ask you if you had any advice as to how I should ask her out.”

“You come to me in a time of need,” Rossi said jovially. “Just be yourself. But if it helps, in my time, I’ve learned that women like to be treated. A little wine and dine never hurt. Or if you want to really seal the deal…”

“I do.” Spencer said, surely. He couldn’t stop thinking about Y/N.

“Then take her to the city of love.” He clocked Spencer’s taken aback look, “Kid, I’m telling you, just grab a couple of plane tickets and take her to Paris. Works every time. No one does romance like the French.” Rossi reasoned. Spencer shouldn’t have expected anything less, Dave was known for extravagance. Spencer knew that it wouldn’t work, not that Y/N wasn’t worth it. Flashy just didn’t fit her style.

“I’ll consider it,” Spencer lied. “Thanks, Rossi.”

The Death of Savannah Hardin

Little Savannah Hardin (9) of Kenowah, Alabama, was a bright and vivacious child who was the top of her class despite a fractured home life. Her parents were separated, and for much of her early life Savannah was shuttled between homes and caregivers. In early February 2012, Savannah was living with her grandmother Joyce Hardin Garrad, in a detached trailer with a big back yard. Since she began living with her grandmother, Savannah’s teachers noticed welts and bruises on her legs, and she was losing a lot of weight.

On February 10, 2012, Savannah accepted a candy bar from a friend as she rode home on the school bus. When Garrad found the chocolate wrapper she became enraged, as Savannah had a bladder condition that made her sensitive to caffiene. As punishment for eating the candy, Garrad ordered the nine-year-old girl to carry an armload of sticks and run non-stop circles around the yard.

This is gruelling exercise for a young child, and after forty-five minutes Savannah begged for a rest and a glass of water. Garrad instead shouted at her to run faster, and refused to give her a drink. Savannah’s stepmother was present the whole time, but did nothing to stop the abuse.

A neighbor of Garrad later said that Savannah was forced to run for over three hours before she collapsed. During that time Garrad screamed at her granddaughter to “keep running until you’ve learned your lesson”, and laughed when Savannah began to vomit and cry. When the little girl started to seize on the ground, Garrad pushed her inert body with her foot and demanded she get up. It was only when Savannah’s face turned blue that Garrad called an ambulance.

Savannah was rushed to hospital and put on life support, but tragically she died two days later, from dehydration and heart failure. Her emaciated body was covered in half-healed bruises, and she weighed just 63 pounds.

Joyce Hardin Garrad was charged with murder, and tried to defend her actions as “strict discipline”. The judge disagreed, and in 2015 Garrad was found guilty of capital murder. She is currently awaiting a hearing that will determine if she will recieve the death penalty.

I will be moving alllllllll the way down south to Savannah, Georgia in September!!! Not for a job, but because I want to live there. So the best reason to move, really.

My new year’s resolution was to not be a victim of circumstance this year. I’ve been saving up for something big, and last week, the universe told me this was it.

happy post-reunion things:
  • about ten seconds after they kiss in the field, james basically collapses with exhaustion. thomas manages to persuade the plantation owner to let him watch over james for a few days while he recovers. he alternates his time between watching james, and putting the finishing touches on the escape plan he’s been working on since being sent to savannah, but never had any incentive to actually put any effort into. he would either suffer in the plantation, or suffer somewhere else. at least at the plantation he had something to do. now, however, he has james again - and despite not knowing the exact details, the scars and bruises prove that peter lied when he claimed james and miranda would be taken care of, if thomas just agreed not to make trouble at the plantation. whatever pain james has suffered to exhaust him so completely - physically and emotionally -  is more than enough for a lifetime. thomas is determined to see to it that he suffers no more.
  • james wakes up a few times, never for very long. more than once, he clearly thinks he’s still asleep. one time he sleepily calls thomas ‘my lord’, and thomas kisses his hand and tells him it’s alright, my lieutenant, that everything is going to be alright now that they are together, because he will make it so.
  • of course, they escape. that’s not important. what is important is what comes after
  • thomas occasionally catches james staring at him, and just gives a little smile that says ‘i know, i can’t believe it either’
  • james is a LOT happier to say ‘i love you’. before he was cautious, he was sensible, and the worst happened anyway. and he spent ten years thinking that thomas had died not knowing all the things that he did, all the things that he was, that made james fall in love with him. he’s never going to make that mistake again
  • they trade stories of their various scars. james tells thomas about flint. when he starts telling him about the maria alayne, thomas freezes, and for a moment james’ heart sinks. ‘I never knew who it was that killed my father,’ he says. james can’t look at him. he’s remembering a thought he had, not long after waking up properly in thomas’ bed at the plantation. how did you get here? he’s remembering the small but persistent thought that has been tormenting him since then - what if thomas had been on that ship? what if he had missed him? if he had just been a few weeks earlier, would he have found thomas sooner? before miranda’s death? before the war? what pain could he have prevented if he had just been faster, smarter, better - but then thomas tells him how peter had him transferred from bethlem to savannah. how he had been ready to give up - how being freed from the chains and the torture of bethlem had saved his life. how that had only been possible because of alfred hamilton’s death. ‘You saved me,’ thomas says, and he kisses james. ‘even if you did not know it at the time.’
How Criminal Minds Is Going To End

Because it’s got to… At some point, right?

The team is called out into the field on a case but it turns out to be a massive ruse. A cop whose case they took over and solved years ago, has gone crazy. Them “stealing his glory” has made him lose his mind and want revenge. And he’s had years to plot his revenge. The teams gets taken hostage and ends with multiple casualties.

Flash forward five years:

Rossi has retired again and become a recluse. His books re-entered the best sellers lists again after the publicity the last case got but he shuns it all. He walks around his huge house, wandering from room to room, not really sure what he’s doing with his life anymore.

Luke has started a relationship with Elle Greenaway who made a surprise return to help take the final unsub down. Although she hadn’t been a part of the team for years, she still grieves for them. And Luke, who’d only been a part of the team for two years shares that same grief. They didn’t feel like they could confide in JJ or Garcia, they hadn’t been part of the BAU for long enough. So they confided in each other, helping each other through their grief, which eventually spawned a relationship. They moved to the coast and live in a small beachside house with Roxy, who loves running into the ocean at any opportunity.

Jack Hotchner signed up for the Academy, wanting to follow in his father’s footsteps. He wants to make his Dad proud. Of course Aaron Hotchner came out of hiding to help his team during their week long, highly news covered hostage situation, it was inevitable. It’s just a shame that Aaron didn’t get to see Jack graduate, that he won’t get to see him walk down the aisle with his childhood sweetheart. One thing Jack swears to himself daily; he won’t be let his job come between his family.

Derek and Savannah are just okay. Little Hank is growing up so quickly but he misses his uncle Spencer and his auntie Penelope. He wishes he could see his funny, colourful clothing wearing aunt but she won’t visit anymore. Derek misses his friends and often slumps into a depression that Savannah tries desperately to pull him out of. Sometimes she succeeds, other times she rides out the storm with him.

Penelope has left the states. She created a new virtual world, similar to Second Life. It’s made her a millionaire but hasn’t made her happy, not really. She spends hours a day at her computer desk with Sergio purring in her lap. In her own online world she’s created avatars for all her friends in which their all still together and all still very much alive. She only logs off when she can no longer see the screen because she’s that exhausted.

JJ and Will moved to the south. They’ve had two new babies, twins. A boy and girl. JJ sobbed as she pushed them into the world, knowing instantly what she would name them. Emily and Spencer, after the bravest people they would never get to meet. Her family are the glue that holds her together, the only way thing stopping her sinking.

The BAU is no longer how it used to be. But that isn’t necessarily a bad thing. SSA Seaver now runs the floor with Anderson her second in command. Portraits line her office, her old colleagues and friends.

Not longer there, but never forgotten.

Thank you to the awesome folks who liked, followed, faved, reblogged and reviewed this fic so far, your support means SOOOOOOOOOO much to me. So without further ado, let’s get cracking with this chapter…)

Here’s the link…

Chapter 6 – Playtime.

Four weeks had gone by since the quake and tsunami which the media had horrendously dubbed ‘The Wave’ and Zootopia was still trying to come to terms with what had happened. Just over eight million mammals lived in Zootopia before that horrific night, and about three and half million of those had perished in The Wave the majority of them rodents. Seeing soldiers on the streets to maintain marshal law had become an everyday occurrence and even after a month rescue workers were still finding bodies in the rubble. Most schools had been destroyed and the ones that were still standing didn’t have the adequate staff to help teach what remained of the student body. Out of the twelve hospitals that served the city only three remained safe for public use, causing overcrowding and in some cases patients being transferred cross state for treatment. In the place of wrecked homes slums and villages of tents had sprouted all around the city, the mammals who lived in these so called ‘Wave towns’ were hungry, desperate and in fear for their lives. And as for the law and order? It was a shit storm; the two prisons that were located within the city limits had been damaged in The Wave and consequently over a thousand prisoners had escaped, crime rates had gone through the roof especially murder and robbery, the worst of times brought out the worst in mammals.

Robyn used to run through the public park in Savannah central for exercise every day but now that entire patch of greenery had become a ‘Wave Town’ where there were desperate mammals and zero sanitation. Robyn was a brave mammal but she wasn’t stupid, there was no need to risk her life on a daily run, luckily she knew one place nearby that had plenty of space to run in and it would be rare to see any other mammal; Sherwood cemetery. Some mammals would be put off jogging around a graveyard others would say it was disrespectful but Robyn actually found comfort here, it wasn’t frightening instead it was peaceful and this way she could drop by a certain gravestone every day to say ‘Hi’. Robyn who was dressed in her running gear which consisted of a grey t shirt and black shorts had run ten circuits of the graveyard and was not feeling tired, in fact she wasn’t feeling fatigue lately when she exercised she put it down to not having school so she had more energy, however though after her tenth lap she made her way to the most heart wrenching part of the graveyard; the nursery. For any mammal who had gone through the nightmare of losing a young child in Sherwood this was where they were most likely laid to rest, Robyn sat in front of a gravestone she visited more times than she could remember, she leaned forward and kissed the white marble of the memorial and greeted with grin “Morning boys.” Robyn then sat back and relaxed in front of the grave of her three still born litter mates Ryan, Ronan and Reginald Wilde, technically born and died on the same day with only their sister Robyn surviving them. “I think I’m getting faster, y’know? This run is getting too easy, what do you guys think, should I add a few miles?” She asked, knowing she would get no answer, as always.

From as early as she could remember Robyn knew she was one of four kits but only she had made it, at first she had felt sad at this fact, that she had missed out on having three brothers and also a heavy weight of guilt that she had been the only kit in the litter that was born alive, but her Grandma Bonnie had given her some sage words that gave her comfort ‘They are your guardian angels’, now one could easily dismiss as an adult trying to comfort a child with whimsy but Bonnie Hopps was speaking from experience. Bonnie, like most bunnies, was one of many of a multitude of siblings but with every litter that her mother gave birth to some would sadly not make it, it was just the way it was. As Robyn got older during a trip to Bunnyburrow Bonnie revealed that she had lost seventeen kits, this fact was heart breaking but just the way things were for Rabbits, even if Robyn was a child of two species she understood this part of her lapin legacy. All Robyn could do was live for her brothers and never let them be forgotten. That didn’t stop her imagining her brothers would be like if they were alive; Robyn pictured Ryan as the creative one maybe he liked to draw or play an instrument, Ronan as a sporty kid like her and Reggie as a mini version of their dad.

“So guess what? Mom and Dad finally have a day off,” Robyn spoke to the gravestone “I know right, it’s been like four weeks without them having a single break, they look so tired lately, apparently Mom’s going to invite Luna around later for veggie stew so we can have a family dinner.”

Robyn looked across the damaged landscape of Sherwood and beyond that the main hub of Savannah central, her navy eyes focused on the newish looking hospital where she had fought for her life not so long ago, she let out a sigh and spoke “Hannah’s seeing the doctor this morning about her eyes, all the other surgery didn’t work and this is the last ditch test to see if anything can be done for her sight…I don’t get it, her parents are terrified for her and so am I but she just keeps smiling, she’s so upbeat…I Just don’t get her…maybe that’s why I love her.” Robyn found herself having butterflies in her tummy as she pictured Hannah, even if these four weeks had been tough the new couple still spent lots of time together although Jack and Skye were doing the whole helicopter parenting thing since her injury and that was pissing Hannah off especially when they walked in on her and Robyn kissing.

“Whatever the outcome of her meeting with the doctor we’re still going to enjoy some junk food, we’re going to head to bugga burger with Kodi and Kion and just hang out, like old times…plus Kion needs cheering up, he’s been so down since his sister’s gone missing.” Robyn confided to her brothers, it always made her feel better to speak about her problems here, where no one alive was listening but she knew somewhere her brothers were.

Buzzzzzzz! Robyn’s peaceful moment was broken by the rude interruption of a wasp buzzing in front of her face, she absolutely hated wasps ever since she was little. She jumped back in alarm and let out “Ah! Get out of my face!” but the wasp continued to get closer so Robyn turned on her heel and started running away from the insect, but it was pursuing her now, Robyn glanced back and she whined “Oh come on.”, she looked back to where she was running and she was about to run into a bench, she panicked and tried to jump over it, the hybrid leapt into the air and cleared the bench easily…the only problem was that she was still getting higher in the air, she had easily jumped twenty feet with little effort “What’s the?” Robyn gawped as she began to descend…and collide with a tree. “Crap!” Robyn squeaked as she braced for impact, she hit the trunk of the oak with a whack and hit the grass soon after. Robyn could already feel her right arm stinging, she sat up and noticed her forearm was bleeding with a jagged gash “Ugh, great.” Robyn commented, then something unexpected happened, the wound closed up before her very eyes “The hell!?” She gasped Did I just imagine that? There was a cut on my arm and now…wait I jumped super high too, what was that about!? Robyn’s mind raced Hang on, I got stabbed in the gut during the quake and that healed quick too; that medicine Luna gave me? It has to be it.

Robyn looked at where her arm had been cut mere seconds before and smiled to herself “Awesome.” The teen then did a quick check of her surroundings to make sure no one else was around before positioning herself in a crouched position so she could launch herself into the sky as high as she could. “Ok, 3,2,1,” Robyn sprung into the air with a huge grin on her face, this time she must’ve made it thirty feet before landing on the ground with ease before jumping again “Woo-hoooo!” she celebrated, she felt almost euphoric as she bounded through the air.  She landed with a roll and laughed to herself before realising something important “Hannah had the same medicine as me? Does that mean she’s like me?” Robyn asked out loud to no one, the prospect of having these new abilities was exciting but she was left confused to the fact that if her body could heal within seconds then why hadn’t Hannah’s eyes repaired themselves?


It was 4 AM when Aleks Rojek stirred from his sleep with Luna still sleeping soundly next to him, the couple were in a spacious king sized bed, the bed was meant for mammals much bigger than them but in the expanisive and luxury penthouse that Luna inherited it was well placed. As he lay in bed, he thought about latest events that had taken place in Zootopia, and enjoying the closeness and scent of the only mammal he could consider as a family in this new, odd and dangerous world. The vibrating sound of his phone disturbed the overwhelming peace, Aleks sighed deeply before reaching for it. What he saw, made his eyes water with tears of joy; it was a muzzletime call from his parents, he hadn’t had any contact with them since the first few hours after the wave, he had been working so much overtime he always missed their subseqent calls. The grey fox answered the call and a screen displayed the faces of his beloved parents, it was clear to see that they showed a mix of worry and relief.

“O Boże, Synu, jak dobrze Cię widzieć.” A Silver furred vixen on the screen said with relief.

*”OH God, we are so happy to see you, son.”

“Cześć Mamo, cześć Tato.” Aleks grinned sounding a bit sleepy.

*”Hi Mum, hi Dad.”

“Nie obudziliśmy cię? Przeszkadzamy bardzo?” A Red Fox, his father, asked with playful tone, but his eyes were full of worry.

*”Didn’t we wake you up? We are not disturbing anything aren’t we?”

Aleks yawned “Nie, I tak niedawno się obudziłem.”

*”Nah, I woke up awhile ago.”

“Próbowaliśmy się do ciebie dodzwonić odkąd usłyszeliśmy o trzęsieniu ziemi, bardzo się martwiliśmy, że…” Mrs Rojek’s voice was breaking  down.

*”We’ve tried to reach you since we heard about the earthquake, we’ve worried so much that you may…”

“Byłem wtedy w bezpiecznym miejscu, z dala od zasięgu tsunami.” Aleks assured, remembering that he had been in the penthouse when the tremors began

*”By that time I was in safe place, far enough from tsunami’s range”

Even thoug Aleks had lived in USA for two years now, his Polish was still free of foreign accent. Luna woke up, hearing her lover’s kind voice, for a moment she didn’t notice that he was talking in his native language, but when she realized that, she looked over her mate’s shoulder with pure curiosity.

“Hi.” Luna smiled innocently, unaware of who she’s talking to.

“Oh Dzieńdobry.” Silver Vixen half laughed, seeing a young lady hugging to her son.

Aleks turned his head to kiss his love on the cheek, and said in a proud voice“ Luna Kochanie, this is Elizabeth and Peter, my parents. Mamo, Tato, To jest Luna, moja Dziewczyna.”

*”Mum, Dad, This is Luna, my Girlfriend.”

“Nice to meet you.” Aleks’ mum greeted in English, she was proud that her son finally found someone.

“Haha, So that’s mean that we soon will have grandchildren?” Peter laughed, his English was clear enough to understand.

“Tato!” Aleks yelled with embarrassment.

“Who knows.” Luna chuckled, joining in teasing Aleks.

Aleks sighed covering his eyes with his free hand from embarrassment.

Luna, Elizabeth and Peter laughed at once. Within few seconds Aleks joined them.

When they all stopped laughing, Aleks’ dad spoke “ Jesteśmy tak szczęśliwi, że jesteś cały, i że znalazłeś sobie piękną lisiczkę.”

*”We are so glad that you are alright, and that you found yourself a beautiful vixen.”

Aleks smiled. „Tęskniłem za wami.”

*”I missed you.”

„Co byście powiedzieli na małe odwiedziny?” His mum asked him grinning.

*”What would you say for a short visit here?”

„Bardzo bym chciał, ale teraz mam masę obowiązków,” “i ten cały projekt nadal trochę potrwa, więc raczej przez najbliższe dwa lata raczej nie dam rady.” Aleks sighted sadly.

*”I’d really loved to visit you… but I have a lot of stuff to do here.” Aleks continued with sadness in his voice “and this project is still going to take more time, so I probably won’t be able to visit you for next two years.”

„To może my was odwiedzimy, co ty na to?” Elizabeth proposed smiling.

*”So maybe we visit you? What do you think?”

Luna listened intently to their conversation having absolutely no idea what they are talking about.

„Spróbujemy przylecieć najwcześniejszym samolotem.” Peter promised

*”We’ll try to take the earliest plane.”

„We’ll be waiting.” Aleks responded with excitement in his voice

“Nie będziemy już wam przeszkadzać,”Aleks’ mum ended kindly. “Pa pa.”

*”We won’t be disturbing You two,”**”Bye bye”

„Bye.” Luna and Aleks said at once, before hanging up.

Aleks put his phone on night table next to the bed. „So what time do we have?” He asked rhetorical looking at his watch and groaning slightly as he saw 4.23 am

„Way too early to get up from bed when you have day off.” Luna yawned, laying back.

„Yeah,” Aleks admitted „But it’s definitely too late to fall asleep again.” Silver fox sighed looking at his red furred beauty.

Luna smiled devilishly “Who said that we have to sleep?” She asked with bewitching tone in her voice.

Aleks give her gaze full of love, before leaning next to her and whispering  “Then how about enjoying each other?”

She put her right paw on his neck and kissed him in response. He wrapped his tail around her and became lost in romance.

It was just after nine when Luna and Aleks had managed to get out of bed due to the clinginess both of them felt after such a passionate early morning. Luna had decided on making breakfast for the pair of them “Aleks do you want one egg or two?” Luna asked loudly, she was dressed in a set of silk pink pyjamas.

“Two, I’ve worked up an appetite.” Aleks joked in response, his voice travelling from the bathroom.

Luna was about to throw a joke back but stopped when she heard the familiar ping of the elevator, Luna quickly stepped into the main living space of the penthouse to see the elevator door opening with the happy faces of her parents to greet her God damn it, I forgot they had a spare key Luna’s brain panicked before she awkwardly opened with “Mom, Dad, w-what are you doing here?”

Judy who was holding a cup holder with three rich smelling coffees replied “We haven’t seen you in weeks, so we thought we’d come surprise you with breakfast.”

“How did you know I had the day off?” Luna asked, trying to think of a way to get rid of her folks before they discovered Aleks.

“Well this little stalker,” Nick motioned to his wife with a grin “saw a post on your furbook page last night about being off today.” Placing a bag of Danish pastries on the coffee table.

“Don’t call me that.” Judy groused, swatting Nick on the arm.

“Um, guys, I’m actually kinda’ sick,” Luna lied “I caught this nasty tummy bug from a patient so I think, uh, you should go, I don’t want to pass it on to you two.”

“Oh sweetie we’re sorry,” Judy replied “we’ll get out of your fur.”

Nick however was not convinced, he could spot a lie anywhere so he asked with an arched eyebrow “What’s going on?”

“Nothing.” Luna denied in a voice that was way too high.

But before Nick could call Luna on her bad lying a voice called from the hallway “Luna have you seen my towel?” Aleks then appeared in the living room dressed only in his boxers and a toothbrush in his mouth, he became still as a statue the instant he saw Nick and Judy standing before him, the toothbrush that had been in his jaws fell to the floor.

Luna tensed up and whispered “Shit.” Waiting for the inevitable shouting match to begin.

Judy was stood with jaw slack, her vision darting between Aleks and Luna, this felt so uncomfortable she now knew what it must’ve felt like for Marian when she walked in on her holding her shredded knickers all those years ago. She then looked to Nick and mumbled “Oh no.”

Nick had his fangs bared, he eyes were narrowed and looked like he was about to lunge at Aleks at any given second “Rojek…” He growled.

Aleks who was intimidated beyond belief saluted his superiors by reflex “Good morning captain, chief.”

“You.” Nick hissed before bolting towards Aleks, luckily for the silver fox he was over twenty five years younger and a lot faster than Nick. Aleks bounded over the sofa with Nick scrambling over in chase “Stay still so I can rip your god damn head off!”

“Sir please calm down!” Aleks implored as he ran to the dining table.

“I’ll calm down once I beat the hell out of you!” Nick responded with spite chasing the rookie around the table.

“Nick, quit it!” Judy yelled, watching Aleks make a break for the kitchen with Nick in pursuit.

As soon as Aleks reached the kitchen Luna put herself in the way of the door so her enraged father couldn’t enter “Dad.” Luna simmered, ready to boil over with anger.

“Kiddo, I need to teach that bastard a lesson.” Nick said through gritted teeth, his eyes locked on the petrified Rojek in the kitchen.

“Bastard?” Luna repeated with distain before poking Nick in the chest and replying “How dare you!”

“Now Baby Girl…” Nick tried to manoeuvre both the conversation and a way around his daughter…but failed.

“Don’t you ‘Baby Girl’ me,” Luna cut down, her anger clear in her voice “I am so sick of this ridiculous protective Dad crap! Every boy I’ve ever brought home has never been good enough for you, have they?”

“Of course they weren’t!” Nick defended.

“Why? You don’t even get a chance to know them, you judge them as soon as you see him, you scare them away…but you didn’t scare him.” Luna spoke, pointing at her boyfriend.

Judy walked over to Nick and grabbed his paw then said “Let’s hear her out….but let Rojek get some pants on first.”

“…Ok.” Nick begrudgingly accepted, he stepped aside and let both Luna and Aleks pass by, with the couple quickly heading to the master bedroom to get changed.

Two minutes later Luna and Aleks returned to the spacious living room to find Judy and Nick on one sofa, with the red fox staring daggers into the young polish cop. Judy who was drinking the cappuccino she had brought from the coffee shop opened the conversation before the pair sat on the opposite sofa “So how long have you two being seeing each other?”  

Aleks, who was sometimes too honest for his own good, answered “Four months.”

“Are you serious!?” Nick snapped.

“Dad!” Luna warned.

“Nick, please.” Judy added.

“Fine! So how did this whole thing start?” Nick questioned.

“It was at the gym,” Luna answered truthfully “Aleks was new and couldn’t get one of the machines working so I helped him out, we started to chat and the rest is history.”

“By the time I found out Luna was the daughter of you two it was too late, I had fallen for her.” Aleks revealed.

Nick’s flames of anger burned brighter while Judy’s heart swelled at these words “So the day of the wave when you told me you had found someone special, you were talking about Rojek?” Judy asked, happy that her eldest kit had found a nice guy.

“Yes.” Luna confirmed before looking at Nick and saying “You can stop staring at Aleks with evil eyes.”

“Not happening.” Nick defied, continuing to stare with ill intent.

“Dad!” Luna forced “Ugh, you do this every time!…Except when Hannah started dating Robbie, why are you ok with Hannah and not him?”

“I’ve known Hannah since was born, she’d never hurt Robyn, she’s the perfect girlfriend for her.” Nick stated, standing by his statement.

“And you know Aleks.” Luna parried “You have been working with him for months.”

“That’s different,” Nick back peddled “he’s my officer, sure he’s a good cop but as a mammal I don’t know squat about him.”

“Nick,” Judy interjected with a sigh “I know you like Aleks as a mammal, you told me so.”

“Carrots.” Nick reacted, hoping in vain that she would back him up.

“The day after the wave you told me what happened in Sherwood, that Rojek was willing to sacrifice his job to save those in need, you told me you were proud of him.” Judy stated, looking at Aleks who looked rather sheepish.

Nick didn’t deny this claim but he wanted to move away from it all the same so he asked Luna “Why didn’t you tell us about you two?”

“I was going to but then the wave happened, and ever since it’s been crazy.” Luna explained “Plus you act all weird whenever I mention I’m in a relationship.”

“I still don’t like this.” Nick said sourly.

“Well tough shit,” Luna replied with a fire in her voice “I’m an adult and I can be a relationship with whomever I want.”

“Captain, Chief, may I say something?” Aleks spoke up, still maintaining police etiquette.

“When we’re like this Aleks we’re not your superiors; we’re Judy and Nick.” Judy eased the young fox’s worries, and when she saw Nick about to protest this she promptly punched him in the arm to stop him interrupting.

“If you have any fears that I would dishonour or hurt Luna please know I would never dream of such a thing,” Aleks began, feeling brave and entwining his paw with Luna’s “for one reason we all know Luna is not a pushover, she’s a strong vixen who doesn’t take disrespect from anyone and the second reason is; she is my Ukochana.”

“Uko-what?” Nick queried the foreign word.

“Ukochana, it means beloved. I love your daughter, I have never been happier than when I’m by her side, every day I try to be a fox worthy of her love and my body and soul belong to her…If you wish to fire me then go ahead but know I will stay with Luna no matter what.” Aleks declared, bracing himself for a verbal barrage.

But the venomous words never came, instead Nick remained stoic and silent while Judy welled up with tears before cracking “Oh, that is beautiful.” She gave a weepy smile.

Nick closed his eyes and breathed out, it was as if he had been verbally defeated before offering “Judy’s cooking her Bunny Burrow veggie stew tonight…why don’t you two join us?”

Luna who was still ticked off at her dad responded with “We’ll come, but if you begin acting like an asshole we’re gone, we clear?”

“Crystal.” Nick conceded, begrudgingly.

Judy who had kept her excitement at bay so far could no longer contain her glee at Luna being in love, she got up from the sofa and wrapped Aleks in a tight hug and grinned “Welcome to our crazy family! I’ll dig up all the old photos of Luna when she was a kit so you can have a look.”

“Mom.” Luna gave a warning tone but on the inside she was happy; at least one of her parents approved of Aleks.

A few minutes later Nick and Judy left the penthouse leaving the emotionally exhausted couple alone, after a long hug Aleks headed to the bathroom for a shower while Luna went back to the kitchen to continue making breakfast, it’s then Luna noticed her phone on the kitchen counter flashing with a new message, she grabbed it and opened the text from Olivia which just had to words ‘Bunker. ASAP.’


Robyn was waiting outside the hospital main entrance dressed in her casual clothes waiting for Kodi and Kion to arrive, the plan was for them to meet Hannah at the hospital and then hang out to either celebrate getting her sight back or consoling her on being blind forever, whatever happened they wanted to be there for Hannah. But all Robyn could think about at the moment was what happened at the graveyard earlier that morning and if Hannah was experiencing anything similar. It doesn’t make sense, I’m healing like magic and Hannah’s still blind, how the hell am I supposed to bring up this subject? Be like ‘Hey I’ve got super powers, have you?’ ugh this is crazy. Robyn thought as she looked at the mammals going in and out of the hospital, on the look out for the Savage family. And even if Hannah’s got these weird abilities, then what? Do we tell our parents? Our friends? Maybe I should talk to Luna about this.

“Hey Robyn.” A voice called out, Robyn looked behind her to see Kodi and Kion walking towards her.

“Sup’.” Robyn replied, her mind still on the whole ‘super powers’ subject.

“Any sign of her yet?” Kodi asked in a caring voice, despite acting like player the teen wolf did have a loving nature to him, he really did love his friends…and worry for them.

“Nothing yet, her appointment should’ve finished ten minutes ago.” Robyn fretted before looking up at Kion, the usual chipper lion looked crestfallen, his broad shoulders slumped and his big brown eyes were clearly showing his depression “I know it’s a dumb question but how are you holding up Kion?”

“Don’t mind me squirt,” Kion played down “we’re here for Hannah, she’s going through a lot more than I am right now.”

“Don’t say that big guy,” Kodi sympathised “we’re here for you too.”

“Thanks but honestly I don’t want to talk about Kiara at the moment, it’s bad enough at home.” Kion confided “Mom’s convinced she’s dead and Dad’s been a basket case since the wave, he spends hours just sitting in her old room…it’s like they’ve given up on her.”

“As long as you believe there’s still hope.” Kodi comforted.

“Thanks guys.” Kodi gave a sad smile, he then caught sight of three familiar figures approaching, it was the Savages “Hey it’s them.”

Robyn spun around and what she saw answered the question on whether or not anything could be done for Hannah’s eyesight; it was a definite no. Skye and Jack’s faces and body language just displayed defeat and grief, the husband and wife holding onto each other’s paws for strength. Hannah who was on the other side of her mother with her arm linked was holding her cane in her spare paw and had her usual content look on her muzzle. Hannah sniffed the air and greeted “Is that you guys?”

“It’s us babe.” Robyn confirmed.

“I’d say it’s nice to see you guys but well…” Hannah joked, much to the pain of her parents who exchanged an awkward look.

“Same old stripes.” Kodi grinned.

“Well one advantage to be being blind is that I’m never going to endure your horrible fashion sense Kodi.” Hannah played, unlinking from Skye’s arm and stepping closer to her friends.

“Ouch.” Kodi feigned being hurt.

“It’s good to see you haven’t lost your sense of humour.” Kion said, still worried for the hybrid.

“Well if I lost that then I’d really be screwed.” Hannah replied with a light chuckle.

“So…” Robyn had to say this “What did the doctor say?”

“All the shrapnel from the gas canisters was removed in the last few surgical ops,” Skye explained, sounding down “but the shrapnel was not the reason for Hannah going blind.”

“So what was it?” Kion followed up.

“The explosion.” Hannah answered, before adding a quiet “Ka-boom.”

“Huh?” Robyn sounded, her face scrunching up in confusion.

“The intense light and searing heat from the exploding gas canister oversaturated her retinas causing her…” Jack tried to explain but choked on his tears.

“Dad.” Hannah spoke softly, holding out her hand so he could take hold of it, which he did “It’s going to be ok, we all know it could’ve been worse. I still got all my other senses, I got the best parents any mammal could have and I’ve always my friends. Being blind is not going to stop me doing anything.”

Jack wiped away some tears and sniffed “I wish I was brave like you, little one.” Even though this was a tender moment Robyn couldn’t help but laugh internally every time Jack called Hannah by her pet name, seeing as she was much taller than her bunny father.

“Anyway me and the guys are going to hang out for a bit, I’ll be back around six.” Hannah said, letting go of her Dad’s hand.

“You’re going out after what you just learned?” Skye asked, aghast.

“Well yeah, what do want me to do? Sit around feeling sorry for myself.” Hannah parried, her aqua blue eyes still but had mischief in them.

“Well no but Zootopia’s more dangerous than ever since the quake, it’s not safe especially for a blind girl.” Jack pointed out.

Hannah let out a sigh and stepped back over to her friends before saying “Look I’ve got a Lion and wolf with me, who’s going to mess with us? Plus I’ve got Robyn with me, she’d never anything happen to me. And if push comes to shove I can fight off an attacker with my cane.” Hannah proceed to hold her cane like a sword and swiped at the air.

“Ok,” Skye accepted “be safe.”

Fifteen minutes later the four teens were stood outside the Bugga Burger in Sherwood, only to find a bunch of cops and yellow tape surrounding the fast food place. “What the?” Robyn mumbled, the windows had bullet holes in them, staff members were being interviewed by police and paramedics were loading a shot moose into the back of an ambulance.

“What’s going on? I hear a lot of noises…and I can smell blood.” Hannah asked, honing her sense of smell.

“Looks like someone shot up the Bugga Burger.” Kodi answered “Who holds up a burger joint?”

“Someone desperate.” Kion theorized “A lot of stuff like this has been happening lately.”

“Yeah, my parents have been working like crazy, I heard Mom say crime rates had tripled since the wave.” Robyn added.

“So no burgers.” Hannah huffed, tapping her cane on the pavement with annoyance.

“We could just get a load of junk food from the convenience store and veg out somewhere.” Kodi suggested.

“Meh, why not?” Hannah agreed, really craving something unhealthy.

The convenience store wasn’t that far away, the group loaded up on chips, sodas and candy bars before sitting on the curb outside the store, stuffing their faces. “So good.” Hannah cooed, munching on some extra spicy tortilla chips.

“I’ve missed candy so much,” Kodi spoke with his mouth full of milk duds “the 7/11 near my house collapsed in the quake.”

“I miss going to school,” Kion spoke up “they say it’s going to be another three weeks before St. Zoo High reopens.”

“At least you get to go back there, I’ve got go to a school for the blind.”  Hannah replied “I’ve got to learn brail before I can even think about continuing my education.”

“You can do it, you always did have good grades.” Robyn encouraged, kissing Hannah on the cheek.

“Well at least I’ll be able to brag that I’ve got the most amazing girlfriend to my new classmates.” Hannah grinned, her tail wagging with happiness.

“Excuse me.” A polite voice brought the four out of their conversation. They looked to their left to see a cougar in his mid twenties with a stack of flyers “Can I give you one of these.” Holding out the flyer.

Kion took the piece of paper and glanced briefly at the info on it ‘DO YOUR PART FOR ZOOTOPIA, VOLOUNTEER AT THE SHERWOOD DISASTER RELIEF CENTRE, ALL MAMMALS WELCOME’ “Relief centre? What’s this all about?” Kion asked the cougar.

“The Sherwood community centre is housing some mammals left homeless from the wave, we’re looking for mammals to help us rebuild houses, make care packages, organise clothing donations, basically anything we can do to help.” The cougar explained.

“Aw that’s nice.” Hannah commented.

“So what is the red cross or government running it?” Robyn queried before taking a sip of her cherry cola.

“Nope, we’re just normal Zootopians trying to help, like Nick Wilde did.” The cougar answered.

Robyn spit out her cola at the mention of her father “D-did you say Nick Wilde?” She spluttered.

“Yeah, you’ve got have seen that youtube video of that cop who stopped the looting in Sherwood by using his words.” The Cougar was wondering why the teen look bewildered.

“Yeah, The heart of Sherwood video, I heard it’s got like ten million views.” Kion confirmed.

“My dad’s on youtube!?” Robyn asked, hardly believing what she was hearing.

“How did you not know about this?” Kodi laughed.

“Wait, you’re Nick Wilde’s daughter? Aren’t you a Hare?” The Cougar pondered out loud.

“Nope I’m a hybrid, I’m half bunny.”  Robyn cleared up.

“Same here, except my Mom’s a fox and my Dad’s a bunny.” Hannah threw in.

“Well whatever you guys are, we could really use the help.” The Cougar added.

“Sure we can drop in, we’re not doing anything.” Kion smiled, knowing his friends were of the same mind.

“Great look for a deer named Alana, she’s in charge.” The Cougar gave a satisfied smile.

After finishing their snacks the three friends made their way to community centre a few blocks away, Robyn was not surprised to see a wave town had formed around the building with dozens of tents dotted around the grounds and mammals trying to live normally in the squalor. Robyn felt a sense of guilt as she walked down the street, sure she had nearly died in the wave but she still had a roof over her head and parents to take care of her. These mammals had lost everything and relying on hand outs from the government and the charity of strangers, she noticed some kids playing a game of baseball in the middle of the road with a rough diamond drew in coloured chalk, which was relatively safe seeing as the street was closed to traffic, the kids ranged from six to ten years of age and all of them were wearing smiles despite what had happened, Robyn wished sometimes that she could be that naive and blissful again but she knew it was foolish. One of the kids, a bear cub, threw a curveball and the young zebra batter struck it perfectly and it went zipping through the air out of the chalk marked diamond and right at Hannah, before Robyn could react though Hannah’s paw shot up and caught the ball just before it hit her in the face. “WHOA!” The kids chorused “Did you see that!?”

Kodi was speechless for once and his jaw was slack, as he looked at the blind girl with a bamboozled look on his face.

“Damn…” Was the only thing Kion could say as he tried to process what he just saw.

Hannah looked the most surprised by this, “What…how did I do that?” she breathed, gripping the baseball tighter.

“Did you see that coming?” Robyn questioned, her mind already jumping to another answer; the medicine.

“No…I felt it.” Hannah tried to describe “That was weird.”

“Hey can we have our ball back?” The Bear cub asked.

“Oh, sorry.” Hannah snapped out of her daze before throwing it back, aimed perfectly at the cub who caught it with ease which caused another ripple of whispers and gasps among the kids.

“How did you know where to throw?” Robyn asked, her navy eyes going wide with astonishment.

“I don’t know.” Hannah answered, sounding a little scared “Come on, let’s go inside.” She quickly changed the subject, leading her way with her cane tapping in front of her, the other three sharing a look of confusion before catching up with Hannah.

The group of friends walked into the main building of the community centre and were met with a scene akin to a military operation, except every single one of these mammals were civilians. There were a team of mammals in one corner trying to fix broken electronics, another team sorting out cans of food and bottles of water, one squad were going over schematics for new homes and the final team were sifting through clothing and blanket donations. “I don’t care if city hall wants the wave town moved, it isn’t happening!” A young but commanding voice yelled from the middle of the room, the voice belonged to a white tailed deer in her early twenties staring up at an unimpressed bull elephant in a designer suit.

“Listen the governor has stated that only specific parts of the city can have waves towns and Sherwood isn’t one of them.” The elephant blustered.

“Those other wave towns are already overcrowded and smell of piss and shit, at least here mammals can eat and sleep in relative safety.” The doe replied with a fire in her voice, she was speaking so loud that most mammals in the room had stopped what they were doing to watch the exchange.

“I have a written order from the governor, do you wish to defy the government?” The elephant threatened.

“Do you wish to drag innocent mammals from their home and stick them in a hell hole?” The doe slung back, she was dressed in a casual shirt and jeans.

“Ok, suit yourself, but please note if the wave town outside this community centre is not vacated in the next 24 hours the governor will order the national guard to move everyone by force.” The elephant smirked down at the doe who was tiny in comparison.

“Oh no, the national guard whatever shall we do!” The deer hammed up “What can a bunch of ordinary folk do against soldiers and their guns?” the doe then began to chuckle.

“What’s so funny?” The elephant asked, clearly irritated.

“You know every mammal had a weapon in here that could defeat your boss and his troops in a matter of seconds,” The deer sniggered before producing a phone out of her pocket “one of these.”

“A smartphone?” The elephant scoffed.

“Exactly, you see the moment you send the national guard here we’ll start streaming on the internet as you force mammals at gunpoint to move, I’m sure ZNN would love to see that.” The doe grinned devilishly.

The elephant’s expression drooped but he still managed to say “You’re bluffing.”

“I can picture the headline now ‘Cruel California Governor terrorises own citizens’, it’s bit of bad press to have especially during an election year.” The doe piled on. The elephant was now at a loss for words, he let out a grunt of displeasure and made his way out of the building with the deer waving a hoof and singing “Buh-bye.”

“Ok that was just awesome.” Hannah said out loud, who had listened to conversation intently.

The deer turned to see Robyn, Hannah, Kodi and Kion and promptly asked “And you are?”

“Is this the Relief centre?” Kodi asked, rather stupidly.

“No it’s the Sherwood luxury spa, we offer massages, there’s a sauna in the back and a Olympic sized swimming pool out front.” The Deer replied with sarcasm.

Kodi who felt dumb as hell at this point joked “I could always use a massage.”

“I’ll make it simple do you need help or do you want to help?” The doe asked bluntly, crossing her arms.

“We want to help.” Kion answered.

“Good, we always need new volunteers.” The doe smiled “My name’s Alana, Alana Clearwater and you kids are?”

“Kion Priderock.” The lion answered.

“Kodi Jones.” The embarrassed magician answered.

“I’m Hannah Savage.” The striped hybrid introduced herself.

Before Robyn could introduce herself Alana asked “Um, are you blind?”

“Nah I just carry this cane around for kicks.” Hannah kidded.

“You want help, even though, y’know…” Alana tried to find the right words, her hoof nervously tracing speckles on her cheeks.

“I lost my sight in the wave but I know mammals lost a lot more, if I can help in anyway please let me.” Hannah informed with conviction.

“I like your style kid.” Alana gave an impressed look and a nod before turning to Robyn “How about you red? What do I call you?”

“Robyn Wilde.” Robyn answered.

“Wilde…you related to Captain Wilde?” Alana questioned.

“He’s my dad.” Robyn clarified.

“Oh yeah, I heard he was married to a bunny.” Alana grinned “Well let me say your Dad inspired most of the mammals in this room, including myself, he’s a great mammal.”

“Uh…thanks, I guess.” Robyn replied, unsure of how to take the compliment.

“So let’s get you some job assignments.” Alana continued, she looked at Kion and asked “You got any back problems Kion?”

“No, why?” Kion asked back.

“I need a mammal to help with the construction crew, you up to the task?” Alana asked, pointing to the crew in the corner.

“You got it.” Kion complied, strolling over to introduce himself to the rest of the team.

“Ok where’s that wolf kid?” Alana asked, wondering where Kodi had gotten off to.

Robyn rolled her eyes and pointed with a sigh “There he is.” Kodi was chatting to a very pretty she wolf trying to fix a TV.

“Let me guess, he’s flirting?” Hannah chortled.

“Ten points.” Alana griped before marching over to the lover boy.

“Wow, so you do a lot of charity work?” The she wolf asked.

“Oh yeah,” Kodi lied “it’s so important to help other mammals in need.”

“You’re so sweet.” The she wolf cooed.

“So you like to help out mammals huh?” Alana cut in.

Kodi who had not banked on the interruption panicked and answered “Yeah, of course.”

“That’s so good to hear, because you’re job in cleaning the shower and toilet block out back.” Alana smirked “These poor mammals need a clean environment.”

Kodi’s smile faded and huffed “Fine.” Knowing it was pointless to protest.

“What about us?” Hannah asked Alana, eager to help.

“Well we need some crates of bottled water taken out of the storage shed, can you two handle that?” Alana proposed, taking a key from her pocket and passing it to Robyn.

“Sure thing.” Robyn agreed, taking the key.

Kodi, Hannah and Robyn made their way to the back yard of the community centre with Kodi grumbling “Damn cleaning duty, this sucks.”

“Serves you right.” Hannah laughed.

“Hey I was just chatting to her.” Kodi defended.

“No you weren’t,” Robyn cut down “you were trying to get into her panties.”

“Tch, anyway….” Kodi changed the subject “what was with that baseball Stripes?”

Robyn and Kodi watched the trepidation return to Hannah’s face as she answered “You’re going to think I’m crazy.”

“Babe?” Robyn spoke, putting a reassuring paw on her girlfriend’s shoulder.

“Hey it’s us remember, you can tell us anything and we’ll keep our traps shut.” Kodi vowed.

“Ok,” Hannah said cautiously “I could feel it flying towards me, like static or something.”

“Static?” Kodi repeated.

“It’s been happening all week, I can feel stuff, like I know where objects are in a room because I can feel them around me likes little buzzes of electricity.” Hannah struggled to convey “And it’s not just that, all my other senses have kicked into overdrive. I could hear you guys talking outside the hospital before while I was in the elevator.”

“That’s….” Robyn was about to say impossible but after this morning in graveyard the word possible had changed for her somewhat.

The loud sound of a chain snapping halted the conversation, two stallions opening up the storage shed with bolt cutters and a pick up truck parked outside. “Are they doing what I think their doing?” Hannah asked, hearing the two horses whisper ‘Hurry up’ and ‘Be on the lookout’ from far away.

“They’re stealing the supplies.” Robyn growled.

“Let’s call 911.” Kodi suggested.

“They won’t get here in time.” Robyn replied before trudging over and shouting “Hey, what are you doing!?”

The two stallions turned around with one of them bellowing “Clear off kid, if you know what’s good for ya’.”

“Leave. Now.” Robyn spat.

“Robyn!?” Kodi flapped.

“Robyn be careful!” Hannah yelled.

“We’ve already called the cops, you’ve got about two minutes before they arrive.” Robyn lied, stepping closer to the thieves.

“You need to learn when to shut up brat!” The Stallion with buck teeth barked, flexing his muscles.

“Go run home to your ma, you cute little bunny.” The other horse teased, this one holding the bolt cutters.

“Cute?” Robyn whispered, her eyes narrowing.

“Oh hell.” Kodi gulped.

“He called her the ‘c’ word.” Hannah grimaced

“Last chance ass hats; leave.” Robyn said, standing her ground.

The horse with the bolt cutters had heard enough and swung the bolt cutters down at Robyn, she dodged them easily and kicked the stallion in the gut with such a force he was knocked into the side of his pick up truck with a visible dent….that was impossible Robyn was around the 17 pound mark in weight yet she managed to kick and launch 1500lb horse with little effort, The medicine!? She thought it gave super strength too! When Robyn realised what she had done she felt a surge of energy course through her, she was going to teach these thieves a lesson she bared her canine like teeth and grinned at the other horse who looked terrified and simply said “Playtime.”

(AN/ DUN DUN DUN! Both of our heroines have powers!? What did you folks think!? PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE Review!!!!!!!

Stay forever

Pairing: Bucky Barnes x Reader

Warnings: Angst, Fluff in the end.

Words Count: 815

If you wanna be tagged in my stories, tell me!

Y/n was in her room, on the Helicarrier. She shouldn’t be there; she was supposed to stay away from the affairs of SHIELD and the Avengers. Now that world no longer belonged to. She had helped Nick Fury and his organization just because the whole world was in danger, because of Loki and his sinister plans. Revise Steve Rogers for her was not easy. The last time she saw him was when he had gone to see her, to tell her that her boyfriend Bucky Barnes, was dead in the war.
Y/n had cried, screamed, she also blamed Steve for what had happened, even though deep down she knew that he was not to blame.
Y/n and Bucky had a relationship for so many years by now, that after his death, the girl didn’t know what to make of her life without the man she loved.
But when one day after the New York War, Steve called her to tell her that Bucky was alive, y/n didn’t think twice to return to him.
After all these years, for y/n revise Bucky in front of her, alive and well, made her cry with happiness.
But even if Bucky had returned, he was no longer the same as before: the torture, violence, physical and psychological wounds that he had suffered had turned him into something different. In a murderess.
Bucky, in the guise of the Winter Soldier, had almost killed his best friend Steve, and he had tried to kill y/n.
But when during the final battle against Bucky, she had called up the boy’s name, something in him had snapped; a sparkle in the eye of the Winter Soldier had made it clear to y/n that her Bucky was still there, in the deep. He just needed help; help to remember again. Help to love again.
Y/n had moved the heavens, and with Steve Rogers was able to bring the Bucky Burnes of a time in her arms.
But things hadn’t gone as y/n hoped. She wanted to be with Bucky, love him again as long ago. But Bucky couldn’t accept all the bad he had done; he felt.. dirt, and horrified that in which they had transformed him.
He was afraid to go crazy again, do it again hurt someone; to hurt y/n.
Bucky decided to escape, as far as possible. No call, no letter.
But in that moment, y/n, locked in her room, hadn’t yet lost hope; she couldn’t accept losing a second time the love of her life. And so she decided to look for him, to bring him back. To bring it back once and for all from her. Every bit of information that could relate to Bucky, y/n followed it.
And finally one day she managed to find him; Bucky was hiding in a small apartment in Savannah. The place where it was born y/n. Although he was gone, y/n he was still in the thoughts of the boy.
When Bucky saw y/n, the beating of his heart quickened. He had been for so long alone, and she was still beautiful.. but how could he forget the pain he had felt the woman he loved?
Bucky tried to get her away from him, to tell her she had to escape from the monster he had become. But y/n was tired of not having Bucky at his side. She had suffered for years because of his death, and now that he was alive, she wanted him as close as possible to her.
Y/n moved closer to Bucky, and placed her lips on those of the boy; all the suffering, the pain, the joy of y/n in having recovered her love, was all channeled into that kiss. And in the end even Bucky could no longer stay away from y/n, from her lips, from her soft skin, from her body.
Y/n shivered with pleasure when she heard the metal arm of Bucky touch her naked back under her shirt.
They quickly undressed, and they made love.
Y/n was finally at peace in the arms of her man.
During the night, while they slept next to each other, Bucky started screaming; he was surely dreaming of something horrible, all the horror that he had passed. Bucky shifted between the sheets, so as to wake up y/n. She turned to see what was happening, and saw Bucky writhing from the pain caused by the nightmare.
Y/n walked him over to her, and put the Bucky’s head on her legs; she began to rock him in her arms, trying to calm him down.
“It’s all right,” whispered y/n to Bucky, “now I’m here with you.”
Bucky awoke sweaty in the arms of the woman. When the Bucky’s gaze met her eyes, he realized that he was wrong to dismiss y/n from him, and he couldn’t live without her.
“Stay with me. Stay forever.” Bucky said.

Laura Dern in Talks to Join Kristen Stewart in ‘JT Leroy’ Biopic

Justin Kelly is directing the film that recounts the true story of the infamous literary hoax.

Laura Dern is preparing for a literary hoax.

The Big Little Lies actress is in talks to join Kristen Stewart in JT Leroy, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.

Justin Kelly is directing from a script he wrote, based on the life rights of Savannah Knoop and her book Girl Boy Girl: How I Became JT LeRoy.

After six years, The New York Times revealed that Leroy was just a literary persona.

Dern is in talks for the role of Albert, who participated in the hoax as a friend named Speedie.

The actress, who is featured in Fox Searchlight’s comedy Wilson, adds JT Leroy to her upcoming slate, including Disney’s follow-up Star Wars: The Last Jedi and Jennifer Fox’s drama The Tale. Dern is repped by CAA and Untitled Entertainment.

For that character meme, @lurkerdelima asked for my headcanons (i guess that’s what they are?) for my smallpox Thomas Hamilton. I’ve only written him twice, but here’s what I got:

– Not a day goes by where he doesn’t think of Miranda. In Savannah, especially in the early days, the only way he made it through a day would be by imagining conversations with her (it was too painful to think about James). They’d converse in his head, often the same conversations over and over, fine-tuned and perfected over the years, about the best way to earn favor with the guards and other prisoners, the best way to plant seeds evenly, the best way to tend to an ill friend. Now, back with James, it’s even worse. He finds himself constantly turning, mouth opening to speak, or turning up to smile, at something James has said or done, only to find his best friend won’t be there to smile back at him.

– He had been with James the first time he ever saw a man hanged. All the other times, he’d been with strangers.

– Life in Savannah was easier than at other prisons or asylums, sure. But a prison is still a prison, and men are the same everywhere. Guards are the same everywhere. Thomas knows he can tend a garden with broken fingers. He can work twelve hour days with influenza. He can withstand sunburn over sunburn over bruises over sunburn. As a child, the only serious injury he’d received in his sheltered youth was a bruised tailbone after falling from a tree. He was four years old, and his mother had praised him for not crying, for being so brave through the pain. Thomas had climbed that tree often. He could see over the high gates surrounding his home. Up there, he could see the people of London on the streets. He could see a lot. He could see far. He had known, even then, there were always worse pains.

— He had a lover before James, before Miranda, even. She was only one who knew about him, though. The man had been older, a friend of his father’s, and Thomas had been freshly 19 and eager to learn about the world. His lover had spent just over a year teaching Thomas all the ways in which he could feel pleasure, to be comfortable with his body, with who he was and what he wanted. To love without apology. The final lesson had come when the man had moved away to the Colonies with his wife and children, without a final goodbye, or indeed any word at all, to Thomas. He never begrudged the man for it, and thought of him fondly still, years later. But he knew then to never feel shame for what he yearned for in this life.

– He has a quiet bet going on with himself to get Silver to ride him by Christmas. It hasn’t happened yet, but he likes his odds.

Background story on Savannah..

Savannah Hamilton wasn’t always a bad girl, in fact she done well in school up until the age of 14, her mum was supportive and loving but a hopeless romantic..

Her Dad left when she was born so she has no idea who he is, when she was younger she would ask about him and her mum would repily with “He loved you very much, he just had a different life than we had” she never understood what that meant and growing up without him made her hate him.

Savannah had always loved drawing, no one in her family could draw and she was an only child so no one understood her love for drawing.

It was always her way of escaping her world.

When Savannah’s mum met husband number four that’s when things changed. Savannah didn’t like him at all and she hated how he made her mum act. He was controlling and a bully.

Savannah hated living in the house with him so the first chance she got of moving out she took it.

at the age of 14.

At first she stayed with her grandma the only grandparent she had who understood her but she couldn’t live there forever so she made a deal with her mum.

her mum agreed to pay for where she was living as long as they got to see her once a week and she stayed in school.

So she moved into a 2 bedroom apartment on her own and loved it! she kept to herself until she became friends with Lee and Tiffany over the summer.

Quickly Savannah realised being the good girl got her no where and Lee and Tiffany definitely weren’t the good kind.

she dyed her lovely blonde and she got some tattoos and a nose piercing that summer.

She started back to school as a totally different person.

Her grades went down and her attitude towards life and people changed and she was no longer the nice girl.

By the age of 16 Savannah had given up any hope of ever passing school because she didn’t care about an education.

She wants to be a tattoo artist and have her own shop one day and she sees school is just in the way.

She would rather party all night and sleep all day than go to school.

Which leads to where the story starts…


Background story on Luke..

Luke was a chubby child with two older brothers to look up to.

He had trouble making friends but he didn’t have trouble fitting in,he just didn’t fit in for a long time.

ever since he was a kid he has always wanted to be a musician and at the age of  13 he started up a Youtube channel and started posting videos and covers of himself singing.

he was no longer known as the chubby kid at school no more.

he decided that school wasn’t for him, that he wanted to take singing to another level by starting a band that’s how his bad reputation started.

He stopped coming to school and when he did he would get into trouble.

He started a band with Michael Clifford,Calum hood and Ashton Irwin

Calum hood his best friend was the first one out of his friends to get a tattoo so Luke also got one and his love for tattoos started from there.

as well as starting his own band Luke also loved partying and dating girls. Having a popular youtube channel made the girls fall at his feet at school.

Luke loved every minute of it.

which brings us to where the story starts..


Background story on Luke and Savannah’s friendship.

Savannah and Luke lived on the same block, they didn’t starting being friends until the age of 8 years old.

Family life for both of them weren’t good.

one day they both were angry at their parents and they both ended up at the same park and they started talking and their friendship begun.

They hung out more and more every day and they became very close.

Savannah showed Luke her drawing, he was the first person she ever showed her drawings too and Luke told her that he loved to sing.

Savannah supported Luke with his music and loved when he sung to her.

Savannah even helped Luke make his own youtube channel..

Some people say that they made a cute couple but as time went on Savannah’s life got more and more complicated, of course Luke tried to be a good friend to her but Savannah just pushed Luke further away until she couldn’t push anymore.

they both grew to hate one another especially when Savannah changed over the summer.

which brings us to where the story starts….

A/N: I was inspired by a clip I watched in greys anatomy so I decided to make this. I could make it multiparts just ask me or request something else :) bare with me I’m fairly getting back into this and enjoy xx

*Warning: swearing and if multiparts then the time will jump from past to present *

— 2008 —

“y/n!” I heard Luke shout from behind me but I just kept walking not wanting to speak to him or even listen to him for that matter. “Wait! I’m sorry” he continued this time breathless as if he were trying to catch his breath. This made me run, I ran until I successfully couldn’t hear him and I was in the safety of my backyard. I hopped over the short fence and walked to the back door luckily my parents decided to leave a fake rock which was actually a key holder because I had forgotten my keys.

I grabbed the rock opened it retrieved the key and unlocked the door , I entered re- locking the door I called to see if anyone was home which I had doubted my parents were probably still at work and my older brother Ashton would’ve probably been out hanging with his friends so I just walked slowly to my bedroom closing the door behind me and sliding down it to hold my knees and cry.

I’ve noticed that whenever Elphaba belts a lot (Wizard and I, Defying Gravity and No Good Deed), it’s the times that is the least emotionally reserved and just shows all of her true emotions.

But in For Good, despite the fact that it is one of the most dramatic points in the musical, Elphaba doesn’t belt at all

because she’s trying to hide all of pain and sadness from Glinda to make sure she stays hidden and can move on with her life

I wonder what life would be like if I had found Parle Productions when they first started Demyx Time.

Chapter 1: Not Your Average Sunday

“Emma! Hurry up or we’re going to be late!”

Emma Nolan rolled her eyes as her mother’s voice carried from downstairs. The woman was habitually late for every aspect of her life but the thought of being late for a Sunday Mass would send Mary Margaret Nolan into an absolute frenzy of promptness. Running a hand through her blonde locks Emma quickly checked her reflection in the full length mirror hanging on the back of her bedroom door.

Most of her clothes were still in New York - there was only so much she could fit in her small bug - but having grown up with her mother she at least had the presence of mind to bring a few Sunday pieces with her. The champagne colored summer dress fell to just a few inches above her knees, flaring out slightly at the waist to create an almost swaying effect as she walked. She kept her accessories simple - her favorite dust rose clutch, the small pearl drop earrings her father had given to her on her twenty-second birthday, and the ever present Swan necklace she had worn since she was seventeen. Her make up was simple and her blonde locks cascaded down her shoulders in loose waves with the champagne heels she had bought at Ruby’s insistence during the brunette’s last trip to New York rounding out her outfit.

And we’re one chapter closer to the smut! And, and… This story won’t be over when they finally do it. I kinda have some ideas to keep this going. Oh and I hadn’t done it yet soooo.. I wrote in a shifting scene into this. Well, the more operative term would be I TRIED to write a shifting scene into this. I TRIED.

ALSO HUGE SHOUTOUT TO MY GIRL @writergrrrl29 because without you this story would be a hot damn mess and you’re amazing and I love you.


eventually rough sex, !Alpha Baron x !Omega Reader, biting/marking, talks of alpha omega dynamics ( things like reader having a heat cycle, Baron knotting reader at some point, etc) and pretty much anything that comes to me. I’ll update the warnings as needed. !Shapeshifting mentions.

It was definitely strange, seeing Baron without the limelight and the cameras and all the people telling him how to act, feeding him lines. It was an eye opener, honestly. We’d just gotten into the town where most of his friends and the little family he had left were staying and we were meeting them for drinks at some bar they all liked to go to.

Corey flopped down in the seat next to me, tattooed hands gripping a Michelob Ultra and his index finger circling the top. “Figured you’d go with Ziggler. He seemed pretty damn confident at the airport.. What did my boy do to change your mind?”

I watched Baron and his brother horsing around at a foosball table, laughing loudly when Baron rubbed it in that he was winning and his brother spoke up quickly, “By one damn point. One, man.”

“I’m still winning.” Baron smirked as we locked eyes and it was that intense stare from earlier, back at the hotel this morning and I couldn’t help but feel my panties pooling with wetness as all the thoughts from earlier came back to mind again. Corey snickered and then nodded to Baron. “You still haven’t answered me.”

“Off the record, right? This isn’t Corey Graves, ring commentator.. This is Corey Graves, caring friend… Right?” I couldn’t believe I was about to just spill the tea as it were, but damn it, I couldn’t just hold it all in anymore. Corey nodded, took another sip of his Michelob and then told me with a laugh, “Yeah. I’m just curious because for a month solid there, you were at each other’s throats.”

“Who he is and who he lets people think he is are two very different things.. And maybe I have a strong dislike for bleach blond fuckboys who only want me because they know I only really want someone else.” I mused aloud as I reached out, stealing a cheese stick from the platter sitting on the table.

“So you do still want him.. All the annoyed looks and avoiding him and the two of you really ripping into each other was an act.. Any reason you’re just sitting on this and not telling him, Savannah?”

I coughed a little, choking on the sip of my mixed drink I’d taken. He’d caught me off guard, I didn’t have an answer for it right away. I mulled it over and then shrugged. “One thing, it’s more fun.. On a more serious note? He needs to prove this, for himself.. And maybe I want to have it proven before I just let him in.”

“Ah.. Good point. I don’t blame you, I mean he was pretty nasty that day on the plane. And I told him he was being a son of a bitch.” he smiled softly as his own wife slash mate came into the bar, excusing himself to go and meet her.
Baron wandered over and I saw the stormy look in his eyes. Was he seriously going to get jealous of every single man who dared to attempt conversation?
Apparently so.

“You can stop sulking right now. You don’t own me. And Corey was just asking me something because he cares about you. Don’t be a jealous asshole, okay?” I shut down the attitude as I calmly sipped my mixed drink and to my surprise, Baron pursed his lips but mumbled something under his breath that I didn’t catch and instead, he sat down, the back of the chair in his chest, tearing into the cheese sticks. He didn’t speak at first.

“Look, it’s hard not to get wound up.”

“No, Baron, it’s not. All you do is actually give me a little credit. I’m not your ex girlfriend.” I replied calmly, the startled look on his face as I revealed that yes, I knew all about the one other girl, the one he’d tried to settle in with, the one who’d rejected him.

Look, I’ve been in love with the guy secretly since I got signed to NXT back in 2013 We went through the PC together. Whether he realizes it or not, I saw how everything went down and I knew that while he’d hidden it very well, it had to hurt like hell.

Maybe that’s why I understood his pushing me away when his mark showed up on me, instead. When you love someone for so long and you’re thinking this is it, she’s the one and then you tell her this huge secret and she basically nopes the fuck out of the situation, severing whatever bond you might have once had, yeah.. It’ll feel like it’s going to kill you.

“I know.” he muttered the words after his shock at my knowing settled a few minutes later. “She was trying to fuck half my friends. It’s hard to bring you here and know I have absolutely nothing on you, there is nothing tying us together.. That  I basically treated you like shit and I honestly wouldn’t have blamed you if you just wrote me off.. And I don’t say this shit often, okay? I just don’t.. So take it however you want.. I’m shit at this.”

I weighed his words carefully and then, I was even more careful choosing my reply.. Because while it pissed me off, him lumping me in with that whore he called an ex fiance, I’ve spent the better part of a month now being nasty, pretending to hate him and more recently, I’ve just realized that despite everything, I just can’t anymore. This is the biggest reason I wish he’d hurry the hell up and be done proving what he feels he has to prove to me because I just… I want the rest of our lives to start? I want to be happy? I want to feel like I belong to someone and I want him all to myself.

but he’s still basically accusing you of potentially being like her…… not exactly…… either way, it was a jerk move and you should go off… my mind argued and I reached out, grabbing another cheese stick. “ I’m not doing this tonight. Things are going okay. Let’s not fuck that up. But for the record, I’m not the bed hopping bimbo your ex was. Now I’m gonna go play darts. You can sit here and stew in whatever you imagine you interrupted a few minutes ago, or you can take it to be exactly what I said it was and come with me.”


Baron sat there for about two or three minutes, just thinking about what she told him, their trip together so far and how the last time he bought a girl back it ended with the girl basically bolting for the exit when he sat her down, told her everything. Since then, he hadn’t bothered with letting another girl get close to him. Then Savannah came bursting into his life and try as he might – and he did try like hell at first – he couldn’t keep her out.

When she gave up not too long ago, it was scary for him. The fact that she was slowly re allowing herself to open up to him again here and there was huge for him. Her words just now hit him and the more he sat there slowly nursing his second bottle of the night, the more he realized that she’d never done anything to prove herself anything like his ex fiance.

He slid the chair beneath the table and stood, slowly making his way over to the dartboard, hanging back a few minutes just watching her in show off mode, a smirk on his face as he continued to nurse his beer and one of his thumbs through his belt loop. Corey made his way over, nudging him. “Piss her off already, man?”

“So why aren’t you over there? Do you really have to drag all this out? All denying your nature is  doing is making you miserable. Personally, I think it’s making her a little stir crazy too.” Corey nodded to Savannah who was turned facing away from the dartboard, a dart in her hand. 

“She won’t hit this.” Baron was shaking his head, chuckling as he watched her attempting to play a game of darts. The smile on his face wasn’t hidden and Corey noticed it, promptly smirking to himself.

“Probably not… And wow, her aim is really, really bad… You should probably go get your girl buddy, before she takes someone out with those things.” Corey turned and walked away and Baron started to walk over, slipping up behind Savannah, his hands at her waist casually. He seemed to just fall into the habit lately, touching her whenever he was near her and he could. 

“Your aim is terrible, kitten.” Baron muttered against her ears as he stepped up behind her.Savannah turned, found herself pressed right up against his chest and Baron had to bite back the growl threatening to escape his lips as his cock twitched, straining against his jeans for the thousandth time that day. She bit her lip and held out a dart. “Show me how to do this then, romeo.”

Baron got behind her, raising her arm, bending it how it needed to go.. The entire time he was doing this, his breath was warm against her neck and he could feel her tensing all over, when his lip grazed her neck he heard her whimper, felt her shiver slightly. “Now throw.”


“Now. Just don’t take out anybody. You gotta keep your eye on the bullseye, kitten. Focus.” his body rubbed against hers lightly and he chuckled when he heard her mumbling, “That’s easier said than done right now, Baron.”

“I’m not distracting you, am I?”

She turned to look at him, a pout on full lips. “Do you honestly have to ask that?”
“I’m not trying to.” Baron chuckled and Savannah pouted, giving her own low growl of frustration. When she missed, she swore quietly and he guided her arm up again, bending it again where it needed to be bent. His lips slightly grazed her neck and he felt the shiver that went through her body when it happened, but when she hit the 7, she jumped up, clapping and forgetting herself for a minute, she turned and hugged against him. “Did you fuckin see that? It didn’t stick in the column or the wall.. Or land on the floor.”

His arms slid over her body and when she gasped, her green eyes meeting his, he saw the faintest deep darkening, her pupils bigger, her scent sweeter and he leaned in, nipping at her lip. “We gotta head out early.. Do you wanna get out of here?”

“We’re leaving tomorrow?”

“Yeah, I usually don’t stay in town long. Being honest, I usually just pick up X and we hit the road again.”

“My dog.”

“You have a pet… Mr. Surly McCrabbypants has a dog. This I have got to see.” Savannah noticed then that yes, she was still sort of holding onto Baron. He glared at her and shook his head. “Besides… Your scent kitten… It’s driving me insane.. And if I can smell how badly you want me and that you happen to be in heat… Then I’m not the only one.” he nodded in the direction of a tall and muscular guy eyeing her from where the man sat at the bar.

Savannah bit her lip and felt her panties flooding all over again, felt the familiar tightening of every single part of her body as Baron very openly picked her up and carried her right out the doors of the bar, past the staring man and out to his motorcycle. 

She scooted onto the bike behind him and he sucked in a breath as he’d done earlier when they’d been leaving his friends place from picking it up. Her body was lightly thrown against his as he took off and it took literally everything in him not to find some dark place and pull off the road, do everything he wanted to do to her.

He almost jumped a foot into the air when he felt her nipping at his neck. He growled a little, a warning sound and she dared to giggle. “Sorry.”

“You better watch out, kitten.”
“Or what? The big bad wolf might eat me?” Savannah purred teasingly as they pulled to a stop in the driveway of his house. 

The dogs bark broke the silence and she’d just gotten off when she was nearly toppled over, being licked, making her laugh. She knelt down a little, looking at the dog. “You’re a sweetheart.”

“Don’t say that shit! X is a badass.” Baron gave her a look for saying it but Savannah poked out her tongue and then let the dog lick her hands, sniff them to get used to her scent. … because he’s going to have to because unlike some, I am here and I am here to stay… just have to let your owner get used to the idea… she thought to herself as Baron stood there, watching her.

“What?” I looked up from playing with X to find Baron staring at me intently. “Didn’t think you’d like big dogs.. Saw you as more of a small purse sized dog kind of girl, honestly.. Or cats.” Baron made a disdainful face at the word and I laughed for a split second before taking my phone out of my jacket.

He took the phone, looking at my lock screen, at my picture of my pit bull.“His name is Yoda.”

“Yoda? You named the poor dog Yoda?”

“When he was smaller, he had mange when I found ‘im.. Only had fur on his ass.. and the scales that come with the mange, well… They kinda felt like Yoda’s skin looked… Look, I was 8 and I really, really, really liked Star Wars.” I explained as Baron eyed me and then snickered a little. “You don’t know me like you think, okay?”

“I’m really starting to realize that.” Baron grabbed our stuff and stepped into the living room of the house and my eyes darted around because surprisingly enough, it felt more like home than I thought it would… I honestly thought that he’d have a bunch of furniture but nothing to make the place his own… I’d thought wrong, obviously, from the shelves displaying Civil War bone saws and horror movie stuff to the photographs everywhere, it honestly made me smile. I was slipping my shoes off and he cleared his throat.

“I’ll um… I’ll sleep in the living room tonight.”

god damn it, Baron!… but I want you in the same bed with me… Can’t you fucking cave in already?… I  get it, okay?….I wanted, more than anything, to scream that at him because I’m beyond frustrated at this point, but then I managed to calm myself down. 

He is doing this to prove how he really feels… To me.

And for some reason, I think he’s just proving to himself that he can let his guard down and get attached… It’s not entirely impossible to think that maybe, just maybe, he has his own insecurities about us.

He thought his last serious girlfriend was it and he went home one night and everything was gone but a note and his dog. That much I’d heard from one of the wives of one of his best friends. And I know that had to hurt like hell.

…. just like your ex did to you…. Just not quite the same reason… and you weren’t in a hurry to trust anyone, remember? It took you 3 years to finally admit to yourself that for whatever reason, you wanted Baron so badly you could taste it… 

“Are you sure? I mean that couch looks really, really small.. And you already cramped yourself onto that cot at the hotel.. And I know you had a kink in your neck earlier, I saw you, rubbing at it all night.” I bit my lip as I looked up at him.
“Just take the bed. You haven’t slept in almost a week.”

“I’ve gotten more sleep than you.” I pointed out as he eyed me and I tapped my foot, crossing my arms. “I can handle this shit, okay? I handled it all alone this entire time. I can handle myself.”
“Yeah, but..”

“Unless you’re fucking offering to give me what I really want, Baron.. Take the bed. It’ll help me sleep, okay?”
He stepped closer, that golden flash of lust temporarily changing the color of his dark eyes as he eyed me and tried to think of something to say. “Not yet, kitten.”

“That’s what I thought, romeo.. Now.. You’ll sleep on your bed, I’ll take the couch that we both know I’ll fit on better and that’s the end of it, alright?”

“You really think this is cute, don’t you? This whole tapping your foot, staring me down thing.. But I’ll let you have this one.. Just because I’m tired as hell and yes, my neck may be just a little cramped. But sooner or later, kitten.. I’m gonna show you exactly who’s in control.”

His lips were brushing mine, my hips were brushing his and both of us were so tense that any second we’d explode. I felt my heart beating faster, I felt the feverish heat of my skin boiling like molten lava and I felt more frustrated than I’d ever been in my entire life.

X was nosing between the two of us and whining for attention and looking up at us with a tilted head and an amused look and I fluffed the dog’s fur as I tilted my own head to look up at Baron. “Looking forward to it.” I muttered mostly to myself as I flopped onto the couch and found myself being the pillow for X when he jumped onto the couch a few seconds later, after I’d wiggled into place and covered up with a blanket that smelled exactly like Baron, my nose taking in the scent as deeply as it could.

If Baron doesn’t crack soon, I swear to God, I will lose my entire effing mind. It will be gone. 

Knowing he was asleep by now, because I could sense it and I could hear his obnoxious snoring, I stood and stretched and made my way through the house and out into the backyard. I needed to do something to de-stress. The only thing I’ve ever known that relaxes me, - other than sleeping with Baron’s shirt lately, is to let the other side out to play for a while.

I hit the woods as soon as I hit all fours and it felt amazing and freeing. The wind in my light gray fur, the snapping of twigs and leaves and bramble bush limbs a comforting lull as I just ran for a few hours, playing around in the forest behind Baron’s house. By the time I was coming back, the sun was coming up and I knew I’d be grouchy as hell and totally useless for at least part of the day but what I wasn’t expecting was to see Baron standing propped against the wooden post on his back porch, arms crossed, eyes scanning the trees as I burst through.

I quickly grabbed my clothes in my mouth and found a shed close to the back of the property and hurriedly shifted back to my human form, stepping out, slinking onto the porch past him. 

“You still shift?”

“You don’t?” I asked, a brow raised.
“I haven’t since I was 15.”

“It helps me through this heat cycle bullshit, okay? I go and run around a few hours and it calms me down. Why wouldn’t you do it if you were stressed out?”

“Because doing it stresses me out.” Baron reached out, snickering a little as he pulled a leaf from my ear. I poked out my tongue and shook my head, sniffing the air. “You cook something?”

“Pancakes… Chocolate chip.”

“My favorite..” I bit my lip and fell silent, following him into the house. “How long have you been awake?”

“Since you left last night. I almost came after you but I wasn’t sure it was a good idea.. Besides, I hate shifting, I haven’t in years.” Baron sat two heaping plates on the table and then sat down, stabbed a mouth full of his pancakes as he looked over at me and so did I, groaning as the taste of them hit my mouth.
“Wow… you can actually fucking cook! This is…”He was smirking and I licked my lips as he eyed me and asked, “I’m taking that as a compliment.. But you can’t?”

“Nope. Motors? I can handle. Transmissions, bring it on… hell, I can even do hair and makeup and shit… But put me in front of a stove with directions and walk away and you will be returning to a house fire. The firemen in my town all know me by name, kinda?” I spoke cautiously while wolfing down my food.

“Nobody’s going to steal your food, tiny. You’re gonna choke if you don’t stop.”“I’m n-” I coughed as I promptly took too big a bite and after Baron hit my back, it went down. “I, ermm… Okay, sometimes you make good points.” I turned to look at him as I explained, “Whenever I shift out to the other me… I burn through food like crazy. I’m always starving.”

“Yeah.. Like that night back at the hotel, right? When I had your breakfast sent up?”

“You… you did that?” I acted shocked and bit my lip, staring intently at his, distracted by them a good f ew seconds before finally continuing to speak, 

 “Yes.. But how’d you know I shifted that night too?”

“I saw you go in your hotel room but I never saw you leave.. Then I bumped into you on the elevator that morning. Not that hard to figure out.. Besides, you always have leaves stuck to you whenever you do it.”
“I do not!”

“You do, kitten.” Baron smirked as I took a huge bite of my food and spoke through the mouth full, “It was easier than going to my dad and telling him what was going on and stuff, okay? Besides, I read my mom’s diary after I found her things in our shed… I knew she kept it hidden from my daddy. I didn’t wanna freak him out. He had enough going on. I mean my momma died unexpectedly… Then all his shit with the garage and other things… Besides, he wouldn’t have understood.”

“How do you know he wouldn’t have understood?”

“How do I know he would’ve?” I shrugged and sighed. “Look, he was already raising a little girl completely on his own and a lot of the time, that baffled him. The guy could hear the word Tampax and run screaming from the room.. he wanted to throw a bullet at my prom date and tell him that the bullets moved faster after 9:30.”

“Wow.” Baron couldn’t stop the laugh that came at her words. He was seeing her really smile for once, for probably one  the first times since he’d met her and her smile was… It was one of those smiles that you definitely wanted to see over and over again. It could light up the darkest night, it definitely had his heart beating a little crazy in his chest even if he’d never admit it out loud.

“You had a 9:30 curfew for prom?”

“That’s seriously all you took away from our conversation?”

We fell silent and I felt X walk towards me, resting his head on my leg. I reached down, petting him on the head as I focused on shoveling the food into my mouth. I didn’t know what else to say, and besides… Baron was about to get a full on crash course into my crazy existance in about another 12 hours anyway… I just found myself hoping to God that it didn’t send him screaming for the nearest exit when he did.
