Author's Note: Decided to go ahead and make an alternate ending, cuz this is one of those stories that kinda needs one. Yeah, not much to say. Thanks everyone who was supportive during my story and who read and reviewed. Also, the beginning of the chapter (more like the first half) will be the same so yeah… just a warning.
You Can't Be the One
Chapter 13: Alternate Ending
"Sorry…for what?" I wanted nothing more than just run away again, but something kept my feet planted to the ground.
He shrugged his shoulders, staring at the ground. "For everything that has been happening… I should've…never gotten you involved."
I shook my head. "Yes ya shoulda! Ya want yer gurl back right? Then that's what I'm gonna do!"
I don't know why I just said that. I wanted to stay here, not bring her back, but I said it so I was going to help him.
"Come on!" I said, grabbing his hand and dragging him behind me. It was only when I realized we were holding hands did I blush and let go.
Yeah, I wanted to stay with him. I wanted to stay with him more than anything else. But it made no difference if that's not what he wanted. Besides, she deserved the right to come back.
We left Termina, Serge walking quietly behind me; his hands jabbed in his pockets, not saying a word. In fact, his face was emotionless.
When we were half way back, I suddenly stopped and turned back to look at him. He was staring at the ground, not paying attention, and ran right into me, almost knocking me over.
"Sorry Kid!" he said, looking me over to see if I was okay.
"Serge…ugh! Never mind, come on, we still have a long ways ta go."
I wanted to ask him how he felt about me…then realized it didn't matter and it would be better if I didn't get more attached.
He looked glum, then nodded. He continued to follow me in silence as I trekked back to Opassa Beach, memorizing the way by now.
I found the little blue orb like thing glowing in the sand and turned to look at Serge.
"Somethin' tells me that this is my way home, and her way back ta ya…"
He nodded, finally catching up, and leaned against a rock, watching me with his still expressionless face.
"Well, I guess I'm goin' home…maybe I'll see ya again someday."
He didn't say a word, in fact, he looked to the ground at that point.
"Well G'bye, Mate…"
I felt tears come to my eyes but immediately blinked them away. I turned to take one final look at him, before I stepped onto the blue orb, the wind picking up around me.
He was frozen, and shock filled his eyes. I felt myself being lifted into the air, and looked at the ground seeing Serge run towards me, but I was too high for him to reach me now.
"I love ya Mate…" I whispered to myself, still looking down at him until everything went black. I felt myself go limp, and I knew he wasn't by me anymore, that I was going back…
Serge watched me leave, looking to the sky even after it was clear. Half his heart was yelling that he was an idiot, while the other was waiting for her to come back.
Kid fell from the sky, landing in the soft sand by Serge. She looked up at him with a smile. "M-Mate?" she asked and when he nodded a smile appeared on her face.
"What happened? All I remember is bein' somewhere with lots of tall buildin's and strange people…"
He didn't say a word, and she started to laugh. "Oh, I get it…I was dreamin'…"
He shook his head and told her everything that had happened. She listened quietly as he explained, absorbing everything he said like a sponge.
"Ya loved her didn't ya Mate?"
He shrugged his shoulders. "I can't believe I have anotha half too, I thought it was just ya Mate…"
He smiled meekly; in reality he didn't even have another half. His other half was dead, just like I was at that moment.
He smiled happily and looked to the sky. "Thank you Kid…"
I landed on my bed, and once I recovered I darted downstairs to my mom.
"Mom?" I yelled, and when I saw her I gave her a huge hug.
"Don't you Mom me Young Lady! Don't think sucking up will get you out of the trouble you're in! You're attitude lately has been horrible and the teachers called and said you were skipping class and dressing like…dressing like…dressing like you are right now! What is with that outfit?" Her eyes fell on my clothes, which were the same ones I was wearing when I was with Serge.
So it hadn't just been a dream…suddenly I wished it had. I muttered a weak "Yes ma'am," and went back up to my bedroom, collapsing on my bed and sighing.
"Well, at least he's happy…"
Yeah, at least he was happy. I hoped the other me had made it back okay. Well, it wasn't like there was anything I could do about it now…I didn't know how to get back.
So I would never see him again? Figured, it was just my luck that he was worlds away. Heck, it was probably all just some dream that everyone had had. Yeah right.
I let myself fall into a deep sleep, and woke up to my mom screaming at me to get up or I would be late to school.
I groggily got up and ready, going downstairs to eat breakfast and then leaving for school. It felt so weird being back in my time after everything that had happened before.
I walked in to Math class and saw we were having a test, which was bad for me since I hadn't been here in so long. I cursed under my breath and sat down.
The bell rang and everyone else joined me, sitting down in their seats. The teacher walked in a few moments later.
"We have a new student. His name is Serge. Please make him feel comfortable."
A boy with cobalt eyes and hair walked in with a shy smile. Immediately all the girls stared at him. My heart jumped to my throat.
"He came here?"
He took the only available seat, which was behind me. I turned behind me and looked at him.
"What are you doing here?"
He looked confused. "My dad got a transfer…"
"You don't remember me?"
He shook his head, staring at me like I was crazy.
This was going to be an interesting year…
Ok, hope everyone liked it or the other one. If not, I'm sorry. Sue me. Lol. Well, yes, the Serge in the class was Serge's other half. When he died, he went to our world and lived there. Yeah, confusing, just go with it.
P.S. sorry for the lack of title for this chapter. I couldn't think of anything.
