We Run

Summary: Based on 2012's Young and Restless Adam and Chelsea. One shot

God damnit. Chelsea Lawson inwardly screamed. She hadn't expected this and now it was happening. Why on earth did she think she could do this.

She ran away, and the plan was to go away from Genoa City and make a home for herself- but the smooth voice on the other end of the phone knew all too well she was having doubts.

"So, I take it you didn't make it to Australia?" Adam Newman drawled with snark. Chelsea shuddered and ignored the cramping in her lower back and put on her best confident tone.

"I don't know what you're talking about, Adam," She began. "I'm already at the airport-"

"You're lying." Her friend deadpanned. "You're overdue, Chelsea. There is no way they are going to let you on that plane."

Chelsea mentally kicked herself. Fuck it.

"You don't know everything-"

"Where are you?" Adam cut in.

"I'm just sitting in my car-"

"It's freezing, Chelsea. You're going to catch hypothermia."

She sucked in a breath realising for the first time she really was freezing.

"Tell me where you are, I'll come get you. We'll take you to bed-"

"I don't want Victoria to get my baby..." Chelsea mumbled like it was a fleeting after-thought.


"I...I want to run away."

She heard him swallow. "Okay. Where? Where do you wanna go. Just let me get there. We can leave together."

"We...we can't, Adam." A tear rolled down her cheek and she swiped it away.

"Why not? Chelsea. We can leave, we can go anywhere you want."

"Victoria is not going to give up this baby without a fight."

"I don't care what Victoria wants. What do you want, Chelsea?"

"A life. To stop running. To have my baby and wake up to sunshine. I'm so sick of the cold, and the snow-"

"Then let's run, Chelsea. To hell with the rules."

Chelsea felt another twinge but nodded. "Yeah."


"I said yes. Let's- let's run."

She heard Adam exhale. "Are- are you sure?"

"Yes." And for the first time in her life Chelsea Lawson meant it. "Let's go."

I know it's short please R and R possibly are thinking of a sequel to this.
