Title: Memories Away
Summary: Uncovering some old home videos also uncovers some feelings they never knew they had... 1/5 and even some 3/4
Author's Notes: Ok this story is basically a bunch of flashbacks. And I'm sorry if they sound to old in the flashbacks, I'm not very good with little kid dialogue.
Extra info: In this fic 1 and 5 have known each other since they were little and Numbuh 1's father left his mom when Numbuh 1 was little.

(((((Q))))) Means that what's between two of those is what they're watching on the TV aka it's the home movie.
Chapter 6: Abby or Numbuh 5?
He popped the tape into the VCR and sat on the couch propping his legs up on the coffee table. He motioned for Numbuh 3 and Numbuh 4 to do the same.
"Now just sit back and watch." His grin became mischievous. "Trust me, you'll like it."
"Give it back!"
Numbuh 5 turned around startled. That isn't me or Numbuh 1...
"Come on Numbuh 4 give me back my rainbow monkey!"
"Numbuh 4!" Numbuh 3 chased after the blonde boy. "Please Numbuh 4 give it back!" The Aussie had stolen her favorite rainbow monkey and she had chased him onto the roof.
"Ah'll only give it back if ya promise to stop blasting that cruddy rainbow monkey song!"
"I can listen to my rainbow monkey CD as loud as I want!" She cried stomping her foot.
Numbuh 4 just stuck out his tongue. "No way."
"Numbuh 4!" She was beginning to sound desperate. She sighed. "Fine. You win. I promise not to my rainbow monkey CD real loud if you give me back my rainbow monkey."
"Well..." He pretended to think.
"Numbuh 4!" She stuck out her lower lip and made it quiver. "Please."
It took exactly 5 seconds for him to cave. "Oh...alright."
He walked towards her and didn't see the part of a branch sticking up from among the floorboards. He tripped and went flying head first into Numbuh 3. Both children went tumbling to the ground, landing in an awkward position. Numbuh 4 (who had landed on top of Numbuh 3) picked his head up and found his face dangerously close to hers. A pink tint graced her face and neither could seem to tear their eyes away from the other.
"I...I...I can't feel my legs." She giggled and the tension vanished.
"Oh...sorry." He scrambled off her and handed her the rainbow monkey. "Here ya go."
With that he climbed down the stairs, a blush still staining his face, most likely to train. Numbuh 3 watched where he had been with sad eyes before looking at her rainbow monkey and hugging it to her chest.
"That was close."
Both Numbuh 3 and Numbuh 4 seemed to be in shock. They were both staring blankly at the TV, mouth's hanging open. Numbuh 1 and Numbuh 2 were shaking with laughter. Even Numbuh 5 couldn't hide her laughter.
"Ah...uh...well Ah...ya see..." Numbuh 4 really was at a loss for words this time.
"I gotta go..." Numbuh 3 jumped up from her spot on the couch. "I have to...to...to reorganize my rainbow monkeys!" She ran out of the room.
Numbuh 4 growled under his breath. "Oh no ya don't sheila. This time we're goin' to talk about it." He ran after her.
Numbuh 2 watched the place where his teammates had just been until the TV blared back to life. He turned to face the TV and a sly smile crept onto his face. Quietly he crept away, leaving Numbuh 1 and Numbuh 5 to watch the movie by themselves.
Still transfixed by what was playing on TV both kids moved to sit on the couch. The tree house was completely silent except for the sounds coming from the TV. It showed the roof of the tree house again, only this time at night.
Numbuh 5 sighed and pulled her knees to her chest. She and Numbuh 1 had had another fight earlier. About Lizzie. Not only and she messed up another mission but she had accused Numbuh 5 of trying to get rid of her so she could have 'Nigie' all to herself.
Of course when she had tried to explain this to Numbuh 1 he had blown up at her and taken Lizzie's side. That had hurt more then she was willing to admit. She placed her forehead on her knees and groaned.
She turned to see Numbuh 1 walking towards her.
He sat down next to her. "I'm sorry about blowing up on you earlier."
She shrugged. "Whateva."
"Do you mind if I sit up here with you. You know as just Abby and Nigel." He looked up at the stars. "We don't get to do that much since we joined the Kids Next Door."
She shrugged again. "We've been busy. Not to mention Lizzie would throw a fit. She has a problem with us just being teammates, let alone friends." She laughed.
Numbuh 1, however, didn't seem to find it amusing. "Numbuh 5...Lizzie shouldn't get in the way of our friendship."
Numbuh 5 gave a frustrated growl. "Ooh! You always do this Numbuh 1!"
He looked confused. "Do what?"
"You say she's not important but then every time she's around you act like putty in her hands! Now if you really like the girl dat's fine but you have to let Numbuh 5 know! You have got to totally commit and she don't like you hangin' around Abby!" She stood up. "You think about that okay? And let me know when you decide. Am I Abby or am I Numbuh 5?" That said she turned around to back inside the tree house.
She was stopped by a hand grabbing her wrist. "Wait, Abby!" She turned to face him and he pulled her into a hug. "You're right Numbuh 5...I mean Abby. And it's not a contest. Lizzie's just a girl. You're my best friend."
She buried her head in his chest and breathed in his scent. "Good. Numbuh 5 was afraid she'd lost her best friend.
He smiled. "Don't be ridiculous."
The TV screen went blank and total silence fell over the tree house. Numbuh 1 was in shock. That had only been a few nights ago. Slowly he turned to face Numbuh 5 to find her staring at him.
"Did you mean that?" She broke the silence.
"Did you really mean what you said or are you just gonna deny it next time Lizzie shows up."
He scooted closer to her. "I'm not going to deny it." He came closer still, their thighs were barely touching now. "If there's one thing I've learned from watching these videos it's that losing Lizzie," He brought his face closer to hers, "would be nothing compared to losing you." He cupped her cheek in his hand and brought his lips to hers.
He barely had time to enjoy the feel of her lips on his when the creaked open and someone let out a shriek of joy.
Ms. Uno looked up at the tree house from her place on the sidewalk. She listened as a shriek of joy came floating out of the window. Followed closely by words.
"Oooooooooh! Numbuh 1 and Numbuh 5 are kissing!"
Ms Uno just smiled and gave herself a mental pat on the back. Bring over those old home videos really had been a good idea. Feeling very proud of herself and looking very satisfied Ms Uno continued to walk down the street.
I really am I genius.
Numbuh 3's shriek made Numbuh 1 and Numbuh 5 spring apart. She stood in the doorway with starry eyes before shaking her head and smiling at her teammates.
"Oopsies. Sorry." With one last giggle she closed the door.
They could hear Numbuh 2 and Numbuh 4 begging to be let in. They were both very grateful when Numbuh 3 refused.
Numbuh 1 grabbed Numbuh 5's hand and gave it a squeeze. "You know...I'm actually sort of glad my mom brought over those videos."
Numbuh 5 smiled. "Numbuh 5 is too." Then she grew silent and looked as if she had just realized something. "Hey...Numbuh 1?"
"Yes Numbuh 5?"
"You're mom's an adult right?"
"And she was in da tree house right?"
"So...uh...why didn't da alarm go off?"
TaDa! That's the end. I hope you guys liked it! Sorry there wasn't more 3/4 fluff. The next story I write will have lots to make up for this one!
After I finish a story that I've left hanging for a while I'll get to work on my other KND fic. So look out for it!
And for those of you who were wondering who was videotapping everything...well honestly I never really thought about who was tapping. Ms Uno I guess since she had the video but...I let you decide.
Well R&R and tell me what you think! I'd love to know!
Flames are, as always, used to roast Lizzie.
