Here's another chapter! I (and Numbuh362) tried to make this chapter a little differnt... So enjoy!
Children screaming and crying. I felt bad, but there was nothing I could do. I faintly remember the hallucination of my brother holding me back, but for some reason, I can't remember why. I shove him away and keep moving, not allowing anyone to slow me down. My grey shoes crept noiselessly into the docking range where I hid from anyone who could come in. The bald boy came in, accompanied by 74.239, and I managed to catch mere snippets of what they had to say. And, deducting from what I heard, Nigel was never to be seen again.I escaped the safety of my hiding spot and shouted plain nothing to the stars. The two turned around and I stood with my hands on my hips, but somewhere, my eyes softened enough for Nigel to be fine with walking up to me, and kissing my lips before I could yell at him, but frankly, I didn't mind the least bit. I dragged him out, signaling 'Peace' with two fingers at 74.239.
Patton Drilvosky sat on the couch, holding a small picture of his wife, Fanny. He silently sobbed as he remembered when they took her...
The sun shone brilliantly as the family played outside in their backyard. Fanny sat on the grass, watching her daughter, Amelia, her husband, Patton, and her dog, Max run around, trying to tackle each other. Fanny smiled as her daughter raced towards her.
"Hey Mom! Are we ready to eat now?" she asked as Patton caught up to her, shortly fallowed by Max.
"Sure are." Fanny pulled out the sandwiches and condiments. Max attempted to shove his nose in the woven picnic basket, but was scolded by Fanny. "Max!" the white and ginger dog quickly obeyed.
"Fanny, what about that snack you brought for Max?" he asked, grabbing his tuna sandwich.
"Oh yea." the Scottish woman rummaged through the basket, and pulled out a small blue bag of dog treats. "Maxxy!" she exclaimed, holding a meaty treat in her hand. "Sit, boy." almost immediately after the dog sat, Fanny let the dog lick the treat from her fingers. "Good boy, Max!"
The family could have been the happiest, it was perfect and Patton couldn't have asked for a better family. But that's when they came. They drove up in a dark black van and wore jump suits of black, navy blue and white. When they approached the small family, it felt as if a dark storm cloud had rolled above them. Amelia had moved behind her father and hung onto his shirt and all of their smiles and faded into unsure frowns.
"Are you Fanny Drilvosky?" one of the men asked.
"Yes…" The wind begun to pick up, and blue the family's hair around in the air.
"You're under arrest for being part of the Government Rebellion." Patton's mouth opened slightly as his wife turned her head towards him, then back to the man. The team handcuffed Fanny and lead her to the van. Amelia looked up at her father, her short black frizzy hair blowing in the wind.
"Dad, what just happened?"
Patton sighed. "Nothing… let's go home…"
That day, Patton felt like his life ended. He has tried his best to be a great father to Amelia, but it was just so challenging without Fanny. Amelia sped walked down the steps, skipping two's and plopped down on the couch next to her father. "Hi, dad." she sighed, tuning the television to cartoons.
"When's mom coming home?"
Patton sighed and slightly shook his head. "…I don't know."
Abby Gilligan stood in the middle of the airport with her children. She faced her husband, about to say goodbye. "Goodbye, Hoagie. Good luck." she whispered as she kissed her husband good bye.
Her son, Evan ran up to his father. "Good luck on the air force dad! I know you'll be the best!"
Hoagie rubbed the boys head, feeling nothing but his old pilot hat. "Thanks, Evan. You keep working on your plane designs, okay?"
The young boy smiled and nodded. "Okay!" as the boy backed away, his twin sister, Rebecca, walked up.
"Bye dad, I'll miss you. Good luck." The girl sniffed. She was a true daddy's girl, and seeing her father leave to the air force was heartbreaking.
"I'll miss you too, Becca. You take care, okay?" The man bent down to kiss his daughter on the forehead, then heard the announcer over the intercom.
"Flight 255 time to board. Flight 255 time to board." Hoagie sighed and looked at his wife again. "Goodbye Abby. I love you." he hugged and kissed her one more time, then boarded the plane, taking one last look…
Nathan Uno sat on the computer. "Come on, baby…" he muttered as he allowed his computer to break through the firewall." His best friend, Daze Beatles sat at his side.
"Nathan, are you sure it's a good idea to change the school schedule to a snow day? In June?"
Nathan reassured the girl with a flick of his hand. "Of course, Daze. I've looked up on the computer so many times, it's fool proof!" Daze watched in anticipation until it was complete. "Yes! It's done!" Nathan exclaimed, giving the black-haired tomboy a high five. "Don't worry about waking up early tomorrow, cuz we don't have school!" Nathan leaned back into his computer chair in pride.
"Daisy, if you know anything about Nathan's arrest, tell us now!" her mother, Kuki Beatles demanded. Daze just looked at her feet. She knew she was going to get beat for disobeying her mother's orders, but Nathan's friendship to her was far more important. "Daisy, tell me NOW!" still, Daze remained silent.
Kuki was no furious with her daughter. The depressed mother took Daze and picked her up by the ankle with her slit arms and dragged her into another room, leaving a grown up Rachel sitting in the living room, or as it was most commonly referred to as the interrogating room.
A few loud and painful smacks and a short scream were heard from the room Kuki had forced her daughter into. When they came out, Daze's face had a new large, red spot and a bloody nose. The look Daze gave Rachel was heartbreaking.
Rachel knew Kuki was not always like this. She used to be very loving and happy, but then the day Wally was arrested changed her for the worst. She would beat her children more then daily and her wrists were often slit. Rachel wished she could do something to help the Beatle twins, but there was no way she could.
It was quiet and all the kids were asleep. I dug through my desk and pulled out my old green and black diary. I flipped through the light green pages till I found the one I was looking for.
I haven't heard from Nigel in a while. An hour to be precise. It's like, he won't even talk to me. I just can't explain it, but I have to give him the benefit of the doubt, he may be trying to satisfy his overly clingy girlfriend. What can you do?
I snapped my finger. That was it, I had to find a way to Moonbase. I looked over to Kuki. She had changed, her wrists were slit and bloody. I gasped and grabbed her left hand, silently praying I didn't see what I thought I saw. Her sad, cold eyes look up at me, and she had dark circles under her eyes, so dark, they were almost black. The palm of her hand was red from the slap to the face she had given Daze. And I realized, that I needed to do this more than ever.
"Do you know how I can get to the Moonbase?" I asked quietly, making sure the kids didn't hear me.
"Nigel's old house. The tree house there has an old S.C.A.M.P.E.R. that probably could take you there."
I nodded. "Can you call Fanny and ask her to help you watch the kids while I'm gone?"
Kuki shook her head. "You didn't hear, Fanny's in jail. That's why she wasn't at Isabella's party."
I widened my eyes. "What? What did she do?" I asked, shocked. Fanny didn't seam like the kid of girl to get arrested. Especially when she had a family. She loved them so much.
"She was with Wally in the government rebellion." A tear began to fall down the raven haired girl's cheek.
"Kuki?" I asked quietly.
"Did you know Wally was against the government?"
Kuki hesitated for a second, then nodded. "I didn't know he would get arrested for it. I thought he was just protesting."
I walked next to the girl and put a reassuring hand on her back. "Don't worry, I'm gonna get this fixed. That's why I'm going to Moonbase. I'm gonna fix it if it's the last thing I do." I looked up in the direction of Isabella's room. "Hopefully she didn't seek up to Moonbase." I smirked. Kuki looked at me questionably. "Just because I'm an adult doesn't mean I can't catch on that she's the Supreme Leader of the Kids Next Door." I smiled. "She takes after me, alright."
"Alright, I'll give you 10 seconds to talk, adult!" Harvey said, pinning down the women, aiming his S.P.L.A.N.K.E.R. at her.
"I need to talk to your sister!"
Harvey looked over at me. "Who wants to know?" Harvey asked slyly.
"Now tell me, what part of 'I need to talk to your sister' did you not understand Harvey?" the women pointed to me.
"How do you know my name! Do you have this place full of video cameras?" Harvey asked, beginning to swirl his head around, trying to find any presents of cameras.
"Harvey, let her go." I ordered, lowering my S.P.I.C.E.R. a bit, not letting my guard down.
"Do I have to make it a direct order?"
Harvey sighed, and got off of the grown-up. "No…"
The adult quickly got up. "Thanks." she said, brushing herself off. "
What have you come here for, and why do you need to talk to me?"
The women walked up to me. "Your the only one who can save my world."
I raised my weapon a little higher and took a step back. She seemed a little too close to me. "We're the Kids Next Door, not the Citizens Next Door. We help kids, not adults."
The women looked almost desperate. "What if I told you that I was from the future?"
I lowered my weapon ever so slightly. "I'm listening…"
"I come from a terrible future. Nothing is the way it was before, and I need your help to fix it." I narrowed my eyes.
"Who are you, and tell me what year you belong to." I raised my S.P.I.C.E.R. "
I come from the year 2038." I lowered my gun down, confused.
"If you come from that time, only 20-some years away, and you look almost exactly like me, then you must be…"
The woman nodded. "That's right, and I need your help."
"With what?" I questioned.
"I don't know just yet. All I know is that I was celebrating my daughter, Isabella's 11th birthday when the FBI came in and arrested Wally!"
I stopped and thought. "I have a daughter!"
My future self nodded. "And a 10 year old son." I held my head.
"What am I like!" Harvey asked, rather excitedly.
"Well, you're a lot calmer, I thank your future wife for that, and you have three kids, two sons and one girl."
"Harvey, not the point." It may not have been fair to critegue him on that, he was just as curious as I was, but if this was as urgent as 'future-me' said it is, then we need not waste it. "We've got to stay on topic. Now, how did you get here?"
"There's a time machine at Moonbase in my time. I sneaked over there and took it. Hopefully they won't need it anytime soon." I narrowed one eye in confusion. "How? You're an adult." my future self snorted. "Easy. Isabella's 2x4 technology to appear as a her. Helps if she's the Supreme Leader."
I pondered. "So, what do you want me to do?"
"I need you to come back with me. Help me fix the future!" I continued to ponder. Something about this just didn't seam right and I felt uneasy about it.
"I don't know…" "Please, Rachel. Think, you won't just be helping me, but you'll also be helping you. If you don't do something, your future will be horrible."
I narrowed an eye. "How horrible?" I really couldn't be worse then my life now, could it?
"You're husband is in another country, your son's in jail, one of your best friend's is depressed and her husband's in the air force, and the other is… mentally unstable and her husband's in jail, and another of you're friends are in jail and her husband's not taking it well, while raising a daughter. So far, me and my daughter are the only mental stable ones."
Harvey jumped in again. "And what about me?"
"Harvey, let's face it, you've never been mentally stable." she said as she reached out to put a hand on my brother's shoulder, then pulled away. I guessed she made a smart choice.
Harvey shrugged as if agreeing with her.
After what seamed like forever, I gave her an answer. "…Fine." I finally sighed.
"Great. Now come with me. There's no time to loose." The older woman grabbed my hand and headed for the window, but as we were about to exit, but Harvey stopped us.
"What about me?" he pleaded.
"Sorry Harvey, but we need you to cover for Rachel." Harvey frowned.
"Sorry." was my last word, and we left through the window.
I tried to make this chapter longer then the last, and I successed. ^.^ I feel proud!
Again, I would LOVE to thank Numbuh362 for helping me out with the idea for this chapter and some of the context. Again, I probably wouldn't even have this story posted if it wasn't for her. You rock! ^.^
Numbuh 27, over and out!
