A/N- Ah, the sequel! Now, it may take me awhile to post another chapter on this after this one. But I will, never fear! I love this story so I will always return to it. Now, on with the show!

Chapter 1- Runaway
A most cold wind blew about the lovers as they raced along the dark highway. She wrapped her arms tighter about his waist. A sign off to her right as they flew by announced that the city of Duckburg was only two miles away. She pressed her cheek up against his back.
Over the roaring wind, he shouted, "We're almost there!"
She took a deep breath as she shouted back, "What will we do once we get there?"
He paused. "I don't know, but we'll think of something."
They were refugees. The proverbial star-crossed lovers, as Shakespeare would say. She found it amusing that she thought back on Shakespeare, such an academic subject. Something she had never been good at, or, at least, had never had enough interest in to care. On the horizon ahead, the sun rose, showing the skyscrapers of Duckburg. The infamous McDuck offices loomed over all others.
He pulled off the road suddenly.
"What is it?" she asked, alarmed.
He whirled. "Nothing. I just thought we could use a break from the cold."
He hugged her tightly. "It's going to be all right, Gosalyn. Your father will never be able to find us here."
"You didn't leave any note to Morton telling where we were going, did you?" she asked, staring up at her love.
"No. I didn't even know where we were going until we were on the road."
She giggled. "Well, that's always a good sign."
They continued to hold each other for a few more moments, but Gosalyn could not relax, try as her love, as Negaduck, did to calm her. There was a knot in her stomach that could not be undone. She gripped him tightly.
"Let's get moving. I don't like just sitting here. I feel like an easy target," she said. "Morg's got that location spell, you know."
Negaduck stared down at her. Kissing her forehead, he nodded. He turned and started up the bike. She held on tight. Before they both knew it, they were in Duckburg…with no where to go.
"Damn!" Morgana McCawber swore quietly.
She'd been at the location spell ever since Darkwing had pulled away from the house. Obviously, the girl was on the move. Moving targets were harder to find than still ones. She had been still for all but a few minutes. Morgana had gotten her location then. She could only hope it was accurate. Walking away from her spell, still active and moving erratically, she pulled out an old map.
Magic wasn't always "just magic." This fact had surprised Gosalyn from the moment she had first met her. It had continued to fascinate her, to the best of Morgana's knowledge. The witch referenced the map, pushing away the old memory. Finally, she found the point.
"Oh my!" she said. "I know where she's going!"
Quickly, she went for the telephone.
Darkwing Duck had been at Morton McCawber's manor for an hour now. The old vampire was constantly having to reply Darkwing's question of, "Where did they go?" with "I don't know."
Darkwing was underestimating Morton's feelings on the matter. Undoubtedly, the masked hero thought that Morton didn't understand the magnitude of the situation…that he didn't care about Gosalyn's well-being. But he did…that's why he was torn.
He honestly did not know where the couple had run to. But if he did…would he tell? He knew of Negaduck's love for the girl. Although it may be inappropriate, that did not mean that it wasn't genuine. He believed it was. However, he wasn't going to tell the distressed duck before him that.
"Would you like a drink?" Morton offered.
Darkwing weakly waved his hand to show that he had declined the offer. He looked pleadingly at Morton.
"Are you sure…?" he said.
"I do not know. I am sorry. Perhaps Morgana--"
But no sooner did the name escape from his beak, Darkwing's cell phone rang. He picked it up quickly.
"Yes? Gosalyn?" he said, followed quickly by "Oh. Have you found her?"
There was silence for a moment as Darkwing listened to the person on the other end. A few minutes later, he leapt up from his seat.
"Morg, I'm going--Really? Thank you. I love you. I'll see you when I get back. Good bye," he said, hanging up the phone.
He turned to Morton. "I'm going to leave."
And with that, Darkwing all but flew out the door.
End Notes: Ah, I liked this chapter. Good beginning, I hope? Now, I must say that I once read a DW fic where he had a cell phone and it occurred to me…"Gee, what a great idea. Why wouldn't he have a cell phone?" So, thanks and kudos to the fic. I guess I had never really thought about it, because DW wasn't really in what I would consider the "Age of Cell Phones." If I can find the fic again, I'll give it proper kudos in the next chapter. Anyhow, please enjoy!
Disclaimer the Second- I don't own Duckburg or anything related to. That belongs to disney. That applies to all chapters.
End Notes the Second: This isn't really a crossover fic, although a character or two from the Duck Tales series may appear occasionally. Over all, though, not a crossover.
