|A+ A- Full 3/4 1/2 Expand Tighten|
It was a week after the kiss, and we had just gotten grades on our projects. Tinka and CeCe, surprisingly, had gotten an A-. Gunther and I had gotten an A+ for recording our project. After class, during lunch, I met with Gunther in the empty science classroom and gave him a hug.
"We did it! We got an A+!" I whisper-yelled.
Gunther smiled and held me tighter.
We leaped apart when we heard CeCe's voice calling my name just outside the science room. I glanced at Gunther and nodded. Then I yelled, "Gunther Hessenheffer, you are a colorblind, pompous jerk!"
"And you are a skunk of a dancer, Rocky Blue!" Gunther shouted.
I smiled and winked, mouthing 'sorry' about what I had yelled. He smiled and nodded, and mouthed, "It's okay; I'm sorry".
CeCe rushed in. "Could you guys be any louder?" She glared at Gunther. "And how dare you call Rocky that! She probably did half the project you took credit for!"
"You mean, you think I did the exact same thing you would have done?" Gunther said dryly.
"What?" CeCe gasped. "I don't do that!"
"Yes, CeCe, you do," I said quietly. I looked up at her hurt face, then looked at Gunther, and suddenly burst into tears.
"Rocky?" CeCe asked. "What's wrong?"
Gunther stepped up and put his hand on my arm. "Are you okay, Rocky?"
CeCe shoved his arm off. "Go away, Hessenheffer!"
Gunther hesitated, then backed up. I shook my head and tried to speak, but all that came out was a moan. I kept sobbing uncontrollably, hyperventilating. I began to feel lightheaded, and my vision began to get cloudy.
"G...Gunther..." I managed to groan, right before my knees buckled and I fell forward. I felt myself get caught by someone before I faceplanted into the classroom floor.
"Rocky!" I heard Gunther's alarmed voice cry out. "CeCe, go get the nurse!"
There was a pause. "Now!" shouted Gunther. I heard footsteps running out of the classroom.
Gunther set me on the ground and rolled me over onto my back. I could barely make out his face. Black spots began to cover my vision, and my head was swimming.
"Rocky?" Gunther's voice sounded faint. I felt warm lips on mine, but it lasted ony a second. Footsteps were running back in.
"I've got the nurse!" CeCe breathed.
"She's cold!" Gunther's voice cracked. "So cold," he whispered.
My body ached. Every joint, every cell, every inch of my body ached. I felt I hand on my neck, and heard the nurse say, "Her pulse is slow, and her breathing is shallow. We need to get her to the hospital!"
Time seemed to stretch on forever, though I was aware of Gunther's hand intertwined with mine. Once I heard him say to someone aggressively, "Stay back!"
"Gunther, she's my sister!" Ty cried.
Gunther was quiet.
"Gunther, let Ty see Rocky." Tinka said quietly.
I felt another hand hold mine. "Rocky?" Ty asked.
I couldn't respond.
Suddenly I was aware of someone lifting me up, onto a stretcher. Gunther was still clutching my hand, but Ty had let go. Soon I couldn't tell what was happening, only that Gunther was still holding my hand.
"Son," someone said. "We need to wheel her into ICU. You'll need to let go."
I heard Gunther begin arguing with the man, until Gunther finally began to let go.
"I'm sorry, Rocky," Gunther whispered. As I felt his presence fade, I managed a moan. "Gunther..."
Then the darkness took over.
As soon as they wheeled Rocky into ICU, I sat down and began crying. Tinka touched my arm. "Gunther..." she said sympathetically.
CeCe knelt in front of me. She, Ty, and Deuce had all come to the hospital. "You love Rocky," she said bluntly, but not unsympatheticly.
I sniffed and nodded, tears still flowing down my cheeks.
"You really do love her, don't you?" CeCe asked. "For how long?"
I raised my head and looked into CeCe's eyes. "Since we first met. Before you and her even knew each other."
I proceeded to tell them the story of how Rocky and I first met, my voice cracking in certain spots.
"Whoa, buddy, that's..." Deuce began. "That's so sweet."
Tinka sighed. "This is why you wanted to be Rocky's science partner, isn't it?"
Tinka shook her head, and tears began streaming down her cheeks. "I actually do believe that Rocky is a amazing dancer," she sniffed. "I just hope I'll have a chance to tell her."
She broke down and Ty cradled her in his arms.
"Her fashion sense is next to perfect!" Tinka continued. "Perfect being me and Gunther... And Rocky is an incredibly smart girl, great at solving mysteries!"
CeCe nodded. "She's the best best friend a girl - anybody!- could have." Then CeCe began sobbing and threw her arms around Deuce's neck. Deuce looked stunned, then held CeCe tightly.
I couldn't take it anymore. I stood up and ran into ICU. I looked quickly around, and when I saw Rocky, my heart stopped. There were about a dozen doctors and nurses gathered around her, and all of them looked grim. I ran over to Rocky and clutched her frigid hand.
"Kid, you can't be here!" A doctor yelled. I ignored him.
"Rocky?" I whispered. "Wake up."
When nothing happened, I started sobbing. "Please wake up!"
Some nurse and doctors were trying to pry me from Rocky, but no one could release my grip, though I wasn't holding on very hard.
My heart shattered when I heard a nurse say to me, "Kid, I'm sorry, but we have no idea what was wrong. Her body just shut down. It's too late."
I began shaking my head. "No no no no no no!" I whispered. I leaned in and pressed my warm lips to her cold lips, tasting salt where one of my tears had fallen. While I kissed her lifeless body, I murmured, "I...I love you, Rocky."
Her eyes flew opened and she bolted straight up in the hospital bed, gasping for air. The hospital staff exclaimed, and one nurse fainted. I stared, shocked and completely and utterly ecstatic.
"I love you too, Gunther," Rocky smiled, her eyes sparkling. She threw her arms around my neck and kissed me, and I felt an electrical current run from my lips to my toes.
The nurse who had informed me of Rocky's "passing" looked dumbfounded. "But she was dead! Her heart had stopped beating and her breathing had stopped! The defibrillator didn't work and-"
"Haven't you ever heard of," CeCe began, walking up with Deuce, Ty and Tinka. "True love's kiss?"
Two weeks after I had died, I lay in my bed, listening to music. One of my favorite songs, Off The Chain by Selena Gomez, began playing. (A/N If you don't know this song, you should find it on YouTube and start listening to it while reading this next part) The first verse was halfway through when I heard a knock at my door.
I opened the door and looked up to see the beautiful blue eyes of my boyfriend, Gunther Hessenheffer. I smiled and hugged him. "Gunther! What are you doing here?"
Gunther grinned, and brought something out from behind his back. I gasped.
"Oh my godfather!" I squealed as he handed me a fluffy brunette kitten with jade colored eyes.
"Fluffy had kittens two weeks ago," Gunther explained. "This little girl remind me of you."
I cuddled the kitten and touched its lime green, cupcake shaped pet license. "A cupcake!"
He smiled. "Remember when you shoved that cupcake in my face?"
I giggled. "Yes!"
Gunther sat on my bed. "What're you doing to name her?"
I sat down next to him and thought. "'Runther-Jade C. Queen'," I decided. "Or 'RJ' for short."
Gunther laughed. "I love it! What does the 'C' stand for?"
"Cupcake!" I giggled.
"Rocky + Gunther," I smiled.
He looked into my eyes, and I melted. "I love you," Gunther whispered.
"I know," I whispered back. "And I love you."
"I know," he smiled, then leaned forward. I met him halfway, and we kissed. RJ mewed between us, and we laughed, still kissing.
True Love's Kiss.
Sorry for not updating, but I was on a no-Internet vacation...
Honestly, I didn't intend for all of this to happen! I intended for CeCe to find out, and Gunther to give little RJ to Rocky, but as I was typing, it was like my fingers had a different idea and I ended up with this! End of the story, sadly, but trust me, in my mind, they date until past college and get married as soon as they graduate, they have several children, and little RJ grows old and happy with them :)
