Serena had finished her last patient early and was on an adventure to find Darien. Searching through each hall and coming up empty handed, she decided there was only one more room that he could be in; her father's office.
She had just made it to the door and was about to open it when she heard her father's deep voice speaking.
"Should I make the check out to you?"
She recognized that voice.
"Is it D-A-R-I-E-N?"
Why was her father giving money to Darien?!
"Are you sure Serena doesn't suspect anything?"
"I'm quite positive. I told her to come for dinner tonight. You drive. You know where to go. She's going to die tonight, you do realize this?."
THEY WERE PLANNING ON KILLING HER?! And she thought Seiya was bad!
Quickly she ran from the door and into the elevator.
"Serena?" Darien knocked on her apartment door.
He knocked harder.
Still, no answer.
Finally he decided to turn the handle on the door, which to his advantage was open.
"Serena?" He said gently as he saw her zipping about her bedroom.
Completely startled and frightened, she stumbled over her suitcase.
"What are you packing for?"
"I-I'm going on a-a-a vacation."
"When did you find this out?" He asked as he started to walk towards her.
"Today." She backed away.
"Why are you acting so strange?"
"S-s-strange? I'm not, I'm being completely normal."
"Well quit packing and put this on." He handed her the garment bag that he was holding.
"What is it?" She asked cautiously.
"Your father told me we were going to dinner with him tonight and I decided to buy you something for the occasion."
Serena slowly grabbed the bag and opened it.
"A dress." She stated relieved.
"Yes that's usually what they put in garment bags. You've got thirty minutes so hurry up. I'll be back here to get you."
Serena sat on the couch wearing the pink glittery ball gown, her hair down and messy. She didn't reapply her make up. Her nerves were on end and she couldn't help but bite her nails. Her hand clutched the small bottle in her evening bag. Soon she heard the dreaded knock.
"Are you ready?" Darien asked trying not to insult her.
"Yes, let's go." She hurried.
"Why do you look so nervous? Relax; it's just dinner with your father."
"I know but it can be a real killer." She caught what she said and suddenly, she felt like crying.
"Darien, this isn't the way to my father's house."
"I know I wanted to take a more…scenic route."
"What's wrong with the normal short route?"
"Nothing, I just like this one better."
"You know I'd feel much better if we didn't take the scenic route." She started to fidget.
Darien went to hold her hand when she suddenly grabbed her purse and pulled out a can of pepper spray.
"STAY BACK! I SWEAR I'LL USE IT!" She screamed aiming it.
"Serena what the hell are you-AHH!" he screamed as she pushed on the pump releasing the stuff everywhere.
Darien hit the brakes causing them to come to a screeching halt. Serena opened the door and ran out of the car.
'Have to go somewhere with a lot of people…' she thought as she kept running.
Soon Wal-Mart came into sight.
'Seiya!' She thought as she ran inside.
Darien stumbled out of the car, rubbing his eyes. Quickly grabbing his cell phone he dialed Dr. Clark's number.
"We have a problem. Your daughter spazzed on me and ran off. I have no idea where she went and she sprayed me with pepper spray!"
"Well it seems that it sucks to be you." The doctor chuckled.
"Well what am I going to do now?!"
"Where are you?"
"Third and Main Street."
"Wal-Mart's one street over, she probably went there looking for Seiya."
"What the hell got into her?!"
"I don't know but find out; I don't know how much longer I can hold them."
Darien ended the call and continued to wipe his eyes as he proceeded to return to his car and speed off towards the super store in hopes of finding his Serena…his loveable, psychotic Serena.
"Seiya?" Serena gasped for air as she found him stocking depends.
"What's wrong?" He asked looking up. "And why are you dressed like that?"
"They're going to kill me." She heaved.
"What? Who? Serena what are you talking about?"
"I overheard. Darien and my dad…they're going to kill me."
Seiya hugged her close, though she didn't want him to touch her, and said, "No one's going to kill you."
"Serena?" Darien chimed in as he ran into the aisle.
"Stay away from me!" She beckoned.
"No you listen! I heard you and my dad! I know what you're planning on doing Darien! I can't believe-"She cut herself off as she pushed herself away from Seiya.
"I can't believe that you said you loved me! I had sex with you, I told you I loved you and you want to kill me?!" She screamed causing all the bystanders to stop what they were looking and gawk.
"YOU SLEPT WITH HIM?!" Seiya raged.
"Shut up Seiya this isn't about you." Serena retorted.
"Serena what the bloody hell are you talking about?!" Darien pleaded.
"She's going to die tonight, you realize this right? Who should I make the check out too?! Ring a bell Darien?! Did my father pay you to love me or something?! I can't believe I actually wanted to marry you! I wouldn't marry you if you were the last man on Earth!" Serena threw the ring Darien had given her on the floor by his feet. He had given her a silver band to wear on her right hand so no one would ask questions.
"No! Serena, your father and I were going to surprise you. We knew you'd die if you found out. You raised the most money for that fundraiser and the media wanted a photo shoot with you tonight and Tom Brokaw was going to be there to interview you. He paid me to get you a dress and to take you somewhere nice for dinner while he got everything set up at a banquet hall for your arrival."
Serena had never felt so stupid in her life. Suddenly a herd of people came crashing through the Wal-Mart doors, cameras flashing everywhere. Her father standing in the front of them, a smile upon his face.
"Miss Clark, how does it feel to know that you alone raised $10,000 dollars for Shady Lanes?" A reporter asked.
"Do you know where the money will be going?" Another asked.
Serena dumbfounded. She didn't know what to say. She suddenly started crying.
"What's wrong?" Her father tried to comfort as he walked to her placing an arm around her.
"I thought you were going to kill me, and I told Darien I didn't want to marry him and I sprayed him with pepper spray and I look terrible and to top it all off I'm PMSing." She sobbed.
"Do you need a tampon, honey?" A woman behind her asked handing her a Tampax.
"I don't like Tampax. I never have I don't know why I used it." She sniffled.
"Here you go sweetie, a little foundation will make it all better." Another woman said handing her a Cover Girl compact.
"I've never tried Cover Girl." She said as she opened it up gently dabbing the puff on her cheeks. "And I've come to realize…I love it."
She broke out of her father's embrace and to where Darien stood. She leapt into his arms kissing him passionately.
"I thought I was going to kill you." He smirked.
"Cause your kisses are deadly." She giggled.
"Hey you two save it for the hotel!" Serena heard a voice say from the crowd.
"Grams!" She squealed as she rushed over to Sylvia.
"How did you get here?"
"Your yutz of a father forgot me in the car."
"You're a whore!" Seiya finally let it out as he walked over to Serena.
"Hey, dick hole, come here." Sylvia commanded.
Seiya knelt down beside Sylvia's wheelchair. Quickly she grabbed the cane that was in her hand and started hitting him the head.
"If I ever hear you talk to my grand daughter like that again I'm gonna shove your pathetic excuse of penis so far down your throat it'll come out your ass you good for nothing bum!"
"So, Serena. Since I'm not the last man on Earth, I'm the last Darien; does that mean you'll still consider marrying me?"
"I dunno. It might take some convincing."
"Well, how about this?" He asked pulling a diamond ring out of his pocket.
"It's beautiful!" She exclaimed.
"So will you marry me?"
"I don't know…I don't get a forty percent family discount from you. I don't get anything from you really."
"You're going to pay for that Miss Clark."
"Well I take that back. I do get one thing from you."
Darien grabbed Serena's hand and placed the ring upon her finger. The flashes went off simultaneously.
"Miss Clark is there anything you'd like to say?" Tom Brokaw emerged from the crowd.
"Yes there is one thing. Damn I love Wal-Mart!"
I went to my boyfriend's house and used his comp to finish it…sorry if the last chapter was confusing but I had to end it there because of my computer…I hope you all liked it! Thanks for the reviews…
