YESSSSS! LAST CHAPTER! This story was good (in my opinion) but it took FOREVER!
Was it worth it?
Days passed. Reuben made lots of friends in the kitchen and both masters loved his sandwiches, although his dislike for Lumiere had rapidly increased. He almost didn't even like seeing the candle, so he avoided him as much as possible. Megan became good friends with Lumiere (much to Reuben and Babette's annoyance) and she explored and memorized every inch of the castle. She took great pleasure in teaming up with the candle to terrorize Cogsworth.
Because of their tricks, the clock's blood pressure and stress levels had risen dramatically. He could barely go around a corner without being scared by the experiment and candle duo. They though it was hilarious, especially after really big scares, because then Cogsworth would faint.
They had been there one week now. Reuben woke up and pushed the covers off his yellow body. He looked over at Megan's bed. It was empty, as usual. She had the habit of getting up early while Reuben ALWAYS slept in. He padded to the double doors, opened them, and started to walk to the kitchen. He saw a candlestick at the top of the stairs.
No. This candle looked different. Shorter nose… slightly different brass design… smaller forehead… softer eyes…
"Megan?" The candle spun around, changing as she did so. She grew into the green experiment in a matter of seconds.
"Reuben! Um… I was just wondering what it would feel like to~"
Reuben didn't let her finish. Tears formed in the corners of his eyes and he raced on all fours back down the hall.
He ran into his room and slammed the door. He started angrily punching the stone walls. The doors opened, but Reuben almost didn't notice. He drew back to punch again, but a strong paw held his arm in midair. He spun around to see a very concerned looking Megan. "Reuben, what's wrong?"
The yellow experiment sank to his knees. "You like that stupid candle better than me…" He realized he sounded like a whining child, but he didn't care. It was true.
"Oh Reuben," Megan said soothingly, "You're jealous!"
She put a paw on his shoulder. "Reuben, Lumiere is my friend, not my lover." She slid closer to him. "Someone already has that position."
"You sure? You seemed to get pretty cozy with him."
"He has a boochiboo already. Babette almost BOILED when she saw me hanging out with him." She shrugged. "Besides. We're from two different dimensions and two different species." She pressed her head under his chin, not unlike a cat. "I'd much rather have a flesh-and-blood experiment by my side forever." He nuzzled her back, the unpleasant feeling in his chest disintegrating.
"Am I interrupting?" Reuben glared over his shoulder at the French candle, annoyance welling in him.
"What do YOU think?" Reuben growled menacingly.
Megan intertwined her fingers with his fur. "Reuben…" He voice held warning. He knew not to press when she used that tone, so he tried to relax.
"You are wanted in the kitchen."
Reuben sighed. Leave it to the candle to ruin everything. He tried to get up, but his legs wouldn't move. He looked at Megan to see that she was emitting yellow/green light.
"Um… are you two… glowing?" Lumiere questioned.
"I-I think so." Megan stammered.
The two experiments tried to keep Lumiere in sight, but soon the light blocked out the candle completely. A loud humming rang in their ears.
"Tell everyone we're going back home!" Megan shouted to Lumiere.
"I will! Goodbye!" Lumiere yelled back.
"How do you know we're going home?" Reuben asked her above the humming.
"Just a feeling." She answered.
She was right. When the light disappeared, they were back in Jumba's make-shift lab. He told them that when they used Dimension's powers, they would only stay in the alternate dimension for a week. They told him where they went and what they did (Jumba though that it was ridiculous until Reuben pointed out, "and making dimension changing experiments ISN'T ridiculous?").
They fell back into routine, not telling anyone but Jumba about their experiences. One day, they were sitting on the living room couch, watching a movie about talking cars. Megan was really into it, but Reuben was laying against the couch back, paws behind his head and eyes closed.
She turned to him. "Hey Reuben, do you think Dimension could~"
Reuben didn't open his eyes or move. "Don't even think about it, Megan."
She grinned and went back to the movie.
So, there it is. Combining two of my favorite characters in one (slightly weird) fanfic.
I'M FINALLY DONE!
CEEEEEELEBRATE GOOD TIMES, COME ON!
