Lirin: Hey all. Before starting how about a little history of how this story came to be.
Johnny: get the popcorn ready.
Lirin: Oh haha, it ain't that long a tale. And since you're being a jerk you can tell it.
Johnny: short and simple version, it's based off a real nightmare of my Hime's and she took the time to turn it into a story. don't ask why she dreamed the cast she did, we still don't know, but this is how it went.
Lirin: a few warnings, 1st if you've got a weak stomach i advise you this might not be for you or at least starting around chapter 7. and 2nd if you have a fear of snakes, much like myself, again this might not be a story for you, again beginning around chapter 7. you've now been warned.
Johnny: pairing will be, myself and Jess and that's all.
Lirin: I don't own Beyblade or it's characters...except in my dreams...ha. please enjoy the beginning of my new tale. and a special big thanks to Beywriter for suggesting a good title to us.
Chapter 1: New Old House
"Why are we here?" Johnny asked his girlfriend as they turned down a dead end street that had a no trespassing sign at the top. "Do you know someone who lives down here?"
"Kind of" the girl at admitted keeping her eyes on the road. "My grandparents used to live down here, and after they died the house was kept in the family should anyone need it. So I think now is a good time to use it."
"You're brilliant" he leaned over and kissed her right cheek causing a small red tinge to appear across her cheeks.
At the current moment they were trying to hide themselves from Johnny's mother who was out to kill Jess and their unborn child since she did not see the girl as worthy of her son.
Johnny wanted to stay and do something about this, but his first priority was to get his family to safety. And Jess had thought of a place she'd rather have not of gone back to, but it was unknown to most outside her family and a few close friends.
The ride down the street was short and she pulled her Volvo in a driveway of a faded red house. The lawn was over grown and the bushes hid the windows from view. Paint was chipping away from with walls and windows of the house and garage. But they didn't care as they got out of the car.
Jess fiddled with her keys looking of the one belonging to this house. It was on a flame painted key which she found funny because while she lived her with her grandmother and parents, she always wished the place would burn...preferably with her grandmother still inside. A fact no one knew. But now she was glad the place was never set ablaze as she and Johnny opened the door.
It squeaked opened and they went into what was called 'the new room'. It was the main living area of the house, but because it was not originally part of the building it was always 'new'.
The inside was not fairing well, just as the outside, and Johnny had much work to do to get it ready for his family. Dust caked the furniture and floors of the entire place and cobwebs hung from the ceiling. As he looked around the place more, he did see a few spiders crawling around spinning new webs.
Jess took a seat on the dusty couch and began coughing as the cloud settled down around her. Johnny ran to her side and knelled before her.
"Yeah" she said after coughing. "I hate dust."
"I'll take care of it" he promised kissing her lips briefly. "Do you want to run out and get us some lunch? I can try and get this room cleaner while you're gone."
She giggled. "We'll have to get cleaning supplies first. I wouldn't trust the stuff that was here, that's been here since my grandparents had the place."
"Alright" Johnny agreed and helped his girl up. "So where can we get the stuff?"
About forty minutes after leaving and going down the road, they returned with bags for cleaning product and bug killers. They even had bought masks and goggles to protect themselves from the mess of their temporary house.
They carefully set the bags on the floor and looked around. The sun was setting on them and the light was fading inside. Johnny tried a light but it didn't work. He then tried to replace the bulb but that didn't help.
"Power must be off from the breaker. I'll show you were it is. Just let me get a flashlight from the car." Jess ran out before Johnny replied and came back holding a thin stick.
Johnny followed her through the kitchen and out another door into a hall way. She flicked a hook lock up and opened the door with stairs leading down. She shivered as her blue eyes looked down there. Something about the basement had always bothered her.
"I can find it" Johnny offered noticing her hesitation.
"It's okay. As long as there's light I don't mind being down there."
He let it drop as they took their first steps down into the lowest level.
The breaker was in back by an old fallen apart workbench. And just like the rest of the house, it was covered with dust and spider webs. Jess stood back as Johnny opened it and caused a couple eight legged critters to run. She shined the light for him as he flicked the switches giving the house back it's life.
Before they left they also found the water valve and turned that back on. And they also looked around a few of the boxes for anything useful like dinnerware and what not.
Most of what they found was junk. But one box had a lone glass. Inside was dried circles of what it once contained, but Johnny figured after a good washing it would be fine to use.
With that in tow, they climbed back up the stairs into the main floor of the house. At the top of the stairs, Jess shivered again. Johnny wrapped his arms around her and kissed her cheek giving her some comfort.
"Go get some food and I'll see what I can do here. When you get back, at least the first room will be cleaner."
"Alright. Anything special you want?"
"Just your safe return" he smiled at the girl in his arms.
"That I can do" she returned the smile. "I'll be back as soon as I can."
They quickly kissed and Jess returned to her car leaving the front door opened to help get fresh air in the place.
Johnny: so the beginning was normal enough. but it wont remain that way for too long.
Lirin: please review. it took a lot for me to write this and i would like to know it wasn't for nothing. thanks :)
