Okay! This is the last chapter. I planned on having it longer then this but...this is how the story went! I hope you like it! Cause...I had a little trouble with the ending. Heh heh...
Ding Dong! Nisa stirred in her sleep. DING DONG!
"HUH? Wha?" she sat up in bed and went to answer the door. When she opened the door, she gasped. There stood a dripping wet Arria holding her book, and standing in the rain.
"Arria? What are you doing here?" she asked as she led Arria into the house.
"I- I ran into Cronlin…"
"Alone? Where's Kiki!" Nisa asked frantically.
"She's working late…..but that's not the problem!" Arria insisted.
"Well…..what's going on?"
"I was talking to Cronlin…..and…he's really mad," Arria was starting to cry…. "Nisa…..I think he's going to kill you….. tonight!"
"WHAT! ARRIA! WHAT HAPPENED!" Nisa yelled. Kaniki came running downstairs.
"What's going on? Arria, what are you doing here? Why are you soaking wet?"
"HE'S GONNA KILL NISA! DON'T YOU GET IT! SHE'S GONNA DIE!" she screeched.
"WHAT! Nisa! What's going on?" Kaniki demanded.
"I'll tell ya later! Just…..call Hyde and tell him to come over, okay?" Nisa ordered. Kaniki opened her mouth to object…but upon seeing the frantic look on Arria's face, decided to go call Hyde….in the middle of the night.
"Arria, what are you talking about? What's going on?" Nisa inquired. Arria looked at her. An expression of pure fear shone through her eyes.
"Nisa…..Cronlin's my brother. He's going to kill you….and….from the way he talked to me….he'll be over any minute." Arria whispered. Nisa was in shock…
"Yeah….I thought….I could stop him but….he just…..wouldn't listen…" Nisa sighed. Kaniki walked into the room with the phone. She was holding it away from her ear. They could all clearly hear Hyde's words.
"WHAT THE HELL! YOU WOKE ME UP IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT TO TELL ME TO 'COME OVER'! WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH YOU!" Arria raced over and grabbed the phone.
"HYDE! NISA'S GONNA DIE! CRONLIN'S GONNA KILL HER!"
"COME HERE BEFORE SHE DIES!" Kaniki grabbed the phone.
"Gotta go Hyde, bye!" she said quickly and hung up.
"Okay….I'm calm….Arria….WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT!" Kaniki screeched.
"Kaniki….Cronlin's my brother, and he's gonna kill Nisa….and I think he's going to do it TONIGHT!" Kaniki sat down in awe.
"Oh my god…..what are we going to do?" she said mostly to herself. Arria sniffed. Nisa took a deep breath.
"Well, we have to be ready! We can take him!" she declared. They stared at her.
"Nisa…..Arria doesn't have Kiki here to read from her book…..and we've never really beaten Cronlin." Kaniki announced.
"Way to kill my last hope Kaniki." Nisa replied angrily.
"I'm just trying to be realistic…" she muttered. BAM! They all turned. There in the doorway, stood an extremely angry Hyde.
"WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON HERE!" he shouted. Nisa looked at him.
"HI! ARRIA YELLS IN MY EAR LIKE A LUNATIC THAT YOU'RE GONNA DIE AND YOU SAY 'HI'! WHAT ARE YOU ALL DOING YOU NUT JOBS!" he yelled furiously. Nisa just stared then, she smiled.
"Were you worried about me?" she asked.
"OF COURSE I WAS! SHE SAID YOU WERE GONNA DIE FOR PETE'S SAKE!" They all stared at him. Hyde blushed.
"I……I just…. Eido's asleep in your yard." He muttered. Kaniki smiled.
"I'll go get him." She said. She then walked out the door and dragged Eido into the house.
"How'd you get here so fast?" Arria asked, now beginning to act less crazy. Eido was up because Kaniki hit him in the head.
"Hyde went crazy and we raced here at like……a million miles per hour." (he's exaggerating)
"I didn't know what was going on!" Hyde protested. Eido grinned.
"CREHOR!" The living room wall was gone, and the whole room was on fire.
"Cronlin's here!" Nisa shouted. Cronlin stepped in.
"Nisa, your dead." He announced.
"NO WAY!" she yelled back.
"URIIK!" the blast came hurtling towards her, but the spellbook was up in Kaniki's room.
"We'll hold em' off! You go get your book!" Hyde ordered. Nisa nodded. Kaniki grabbed Nisa and pulled her upstairs to get the spellbook.
"HYDE! GO AWAY YOU POINTY HEADED FREAK!" Cronlin screeched. Hyde smirked.
"No way." Arria ran over to Cronlin.
"WILL YOU JUST QUIT IT! THIS ISN'T GONNA SOLVE YOUR PROBLEMS!" Arria yelled.
"I DON'T CARE!" Cronlin shouted angrily at her. Nisa slid down the banister with Kaniki running down the steps behind her.
"MIKRON!" The blast sent Cronlin hurtling backwards.
"AAAAAHHHHHH! NISA! I'M GONNA KILL YOU! YOU HERE ME! KILL YOU!" he shouted. Arria glared at him.
"WHY DO YOU WANT TO KILL HER JUST BECAUSE SHE'S IN LOVE WITH HYDE!" she screeched. They all stopped. The entire room was silent. Hyde turned away. Arria looked at him.
"You….you knew?" she asked him. Hyde whipped around to look at her.
"YOU KNEW! WHY DIDN'T YOU TELL HER!" Arria screeched.
"WHY DIDN'T YOU TELL HER! Besides…..I only knew a little…" Hyde trailed off.
"What do you mean?" Arria inquired.
"I found out not to long ago….but! I only knew that Cronlin wanted to kill her because…..because she-"
"Because, Nisa!" Arria turned to Nisa, "Cronlin wants to kill you because he loves you!"
"WHAT!" everyone yelled out in surprise.
"But, you like Hyde…so he got mad." Arria explained. (I'm sure all of you are jumping around going, Yay! I was right! Wahoo! Have fun, it's nice to be right, isn't it?)
"SHUT UP!" Cronlin screeched. Nisa turned to him.
"I don't understand…"
"DON'T YOU REMEMBER YOU WORTHLESS PILE OF-"
"IF YOU LOVE HER SO MUCH WHY DO YOU YELL AT HER ALL THE TIME?" Hyde interrupted.
"It's better than you! You're just mean to her all the time!" Cronlin argued.
"What the hell are you talking about?" Hyde said rather calmly.
"You wanna hear what happened? Well, listen closely."
Cronlin walked up to Nisa.
"Nothing really, I was just thinking…"
"What were you thinking about?"
"Well, I think…I'm in love…" Nisa trailed off.
"Really? With who?" Cronlin asked, trying to conceal his excitement.
"Well, I don't know him very well, I just saw him walking around one day…he has this pointy hair, and an H on his shirt…but, he was so…I dunno, I just felt so happy…" Cronlin glared, it was Hyde, he just knew it.
"Oh…that's…great." He muttered.
"I know! Isn't it!"
"I know that kid…"
"Really! What's he like?"
"HE'S A REAL JERK! YOU SHOULD STAY AWAY FROM HIM!" he yelled.
"Well he can't be that bad, I mean-"
"YES! HE'S HORRIBLE! AND YOU WOULD BE AN IDIOT TO LIKE HIM!"
"Look Cronlin, I don't know what your problem is, but if your going to be so unreasonable, I don't think I can hang out with you anymore. Bye…" and she walked away. Cronlin shuddered.
"Fine…if that's the way you want it…"
"YOU'RE INSANE!" Hyde yelled. Cronlin glared at him.
"NO I'M NOT!"
"That's the reason you came after me….you were jealous?" Nisa asked. Cronlin looked at her.
"YES! YOU LIKED HIM BEFORE YOU EVEN MET HIM!" he pointed at Hyde angrily.
"I'm right here ya know." Hyde announced. Cronlin smirked.
"Galig, I want to kill them." Cronlin announced.
"All of them…..I want them all dead…." Cronlin held up his hands.
"CREHOR!" They all hid behind their arms but…..the blast never hit…
"AHHHHHH!" they looked to see Arria….laying on the ground..all burnt with her book, which was on fire.
"She took the blast." Hyde thought aloud.
"Why did you throw your book there too….now you have to go back to the mamodo world…." Nisa said sadly. Arria stood up. She ran over and grabbed Cronlin's book from Galig and threw it onto her own.
"SO I COULD DO THAT!" she shouted.
"WHAT!" Cronlin screeched. Arria walked over to Nisa.
"Tell Kiki I said….it was fun…and, goodbye." Arria said sadly. Nisa nodded.
"I'll see ya at the end of the battle, okay?" Arria grinned.
"See ya." Hyde said. Arria waved.
"Bye guys!" and then……she vanished. Cronlin lunged at Hyde.
"THIS IS ALL YOUR FAULT!" He yelled. Hyde watched him start to fade… right before Cronlin hit him, he disappeared.
"I guess….it's just us now." Nisa said sadly. Hyde looked at her.
"You'll get to see them at the end of the battle."
"It'll be bittersweet though, I'll get to see Arria, but I'll also have to see Cronlin." Nisa laughed. Kaniki sighed.
"I'm gonna go call Kiki." She sighed. Eido smiled.
"I'll go 'help' her." He grinned and followed her. Nisa smiled at Hyde.
"I guess you know now, huh?" Hyde turned to her.
"I guess so…" Kaniki walked in with Eido following.
"Kiki's a little sad, but, I think she'll be okay." Eido nodded.
"Well, I'm going to show happy here were he's staying tonight, okay?" Nisa nodded. Kaniki smiled and went upstairs, with Eido following of course.
"Well?" Nisa inquired.
"Well, what?" he replied.
"Aren't you gonna say something like, I'm sorry, but I don't like you that way, or No! It would never work out!" Hyde smiled. A real smile, and kissed her, just for a second. Nisa blushed.
"I love you too."
All done! It's over! That's the story! But, I will be writing more, but...probably not in this section, maybe, I dunno. Other stories for now! Maybe more Zatch Bell in the future! You'll just have to wait and see!
