[back at Comte De Chagny's]
Raoul: Wait, don't leave!
Mrs. Chagny: If you can't afford to keep that bimbo happy, how can you afford a
boarding school for Lilly? Good bye! [ she slammed the door hard enough to break
After a decision to run off they decided to tell Christine first only to
find she was gone. Then was the suggestion of sending little Lilly to boarding school
instead of using Christine. But somehow the argument led to questioning about
Raoul's wealth. And it seems money changes emotions a lot.
Raoul looked in the corner to see the child crying.
Raoul: You know where she is, don't you?
Raoul: I don't believe that. I know you're mad at me for running your mother off, but
It wasn't my fault. It was Christine's. Just tell me what you know and I'll get her
and bring her back and punish her.
Lilly: I don't....
Raoul: TELL ME DAMN IT!!!!
Lilly: ERIK! SHE SAID SOMETHING ABOUT A ERIK[the child started to cry]
[ In the opera house cellars]
Christine woke up from a restful nights sleep. A first she had been able
to have in a long time. Of course the fact she had Erik sleeping next to her had a lot
to do with most of it. She wanted to get up and look around to see what changed
since she had last been here, but she didn't want to wake Erik.
She was real careful when she got out of bed, and slipped on his shirt.
Christine: Hhhmmmm, I like his cologne. [she thought silently]
She looked around to find nothing had changed. She looked on the organ
To see if he was writing anything new, Yes, she knew she was being nosy but she
loved Erik's music. Just then, she tripped and fell on keys.
Christine: Well, that was bright of me.
Erik: [laughing in a corner] Yea, it was hilarious.
Christine: How long have you been awake?!
Erik: Longer than you, I was waiting for you to get up. When you did I was going
To jump up behind you and make you jump, but you did that yourself.
[he wrapped his arms around her waist unaware they were being watched]
Erik: What are we going to do now?
Christine: How about get married, make a few babies, watch them grow, sit on the
Front porch, and get old together.
Erik: I like that plan.
Christine: Did you hear something?
Erik: Ssshh , let me listen.
Raoul comes bursting in the room holding a hunting gun.
Raoul: Don't try Erik, all the times I told her to shut up she'd yell back.
Erik: What are you doing here?
Raoul: Collecting what's mine!
Christine: Strange, everything here belongs to Erik. Including me.
Raoul: That's what this is for. [He held up his gun]
Erik: You are the CRAZIEST FOP I EVER MET!!!!!!!!!
Raoul: I know what you are but [he pointed gun] what am I?
Erik: What do you want?
Erik: I don't care how much you threaten me, just leave Christine alone.
Raoul: I don't want revenge against you, sir, only Christine. Unfortunately, for you,
you know everything. And I can't let you go can I?
Christine: Why can't things be like they used to be? Remember? When we played
all day and the only thing we were afraid of was getting home late for supper.
Raoul: Memories fade!
Erik: Before you do anything to us, tell me how you got down here.
Raoul: I followed Nadir when he found you two sleeping... He left not disturbing
you. I'm getting tired of this. I really need to be going so if you two would just get
in that corner.
Erik to Christine: Wait for it.
Raoul: Any last words?
Erik: Only a few. Does your head hurt?
Raoul turned around to see Nadir holding a bat. He was knocked
unconscious. Nadir usually doesn't visit twice within a few days. But the discovery
of a weapon robbery linking to Raoul felt important but he felt he would've
interrupted something special. When he was leaving he saw something out
of the ordinary go in the underground home.
A few days later. The couple had the park to
Erik: Are you going to be ok?
Christine: Yes, I'm fine.
Erik: The wedding is tomorrow, if you don't feel up to...
Christine: hold your tongue! Besides, we need to get this over with before I get so
Pregnant I can't fit into my dress.
Erik: I love you.
Christine: ^_^ You.
[Christine tackled him.]
Erik: You know these grass stains will be hard to get out.
Christine: Come on, Meg's expecting us for dinner.
Erik: I have a surprise.
Christine: A way to see Nadir's face again when you told him he was the best man?
Erik: No, listen. My wedding gift I give to you.
In the still of the night
I held you
Held you tight
In the still of the night.
Christine: I love it. But how'd you?
Erik: It's amazing what a promise to the choir they can have free cake can do.
And Christine found what she wanted. A place to build happy memories.
Corny I know, but I love happy endings
Erik:^_^ I love ones that involve fop disappearances and happy Christines.
