So, this is my first attempt at 100 oneshots. …Cool.

This is for Emerald Shapeshifter 777, because she requested it and because she granted my requests.

This is some straight up Chinmay(romance) and Chotto(Friendship).

Takes place after the destruction of the Worm.

I can't say I own SRMTHFG. BUT, I do own this oneshot. So yeah.

Please Hang On

Why? Why did I leave her alone? Chiro lay in his bed, staring up at the ceiling. The rest of the monkey team was doing their own activities: Sprx was polishing his magnets, Nova was sparring with Antauri, Gibson was doing something in his lab, and Otto was…actually, Chiro didn't know where Otto was. A sudden knock on his door provided the answer.

"Chiro, are you in there?" Chiro said nothing, hoping the green mechanic would let it go and walk away. Apparently, Otto had other plans.

"Chiro, are you in there?" Chiro sighed and called out.

"Yeah, Otto, I'm in here. What do you need?" The green monkey entered the room, smiling goofily as always.

"I was just wondering if you wanted to play a video game, your choice." Chiro sighed and shook his head.

"No thanks, Otto. I'm really not in the mood for anything like that." Otto's smile fell as he heard the guilt and despair in his young leader's voice. When the green monkey spoke his voice was heavy with concern.

"What's wrong, Chiro?" Chiro didn't say anything at first, instead staring at the ceiling again. Otto spoke again, just in case the boy hadn't heard him.

"Did you hear me, Chiro? I asked what's wrong." Chiro sighed for a third time, turning his attention to the green simian. Fear and guilt circulated in the boy's blue eyes.

"It's Jinmay. That message we got from her…" Otto understood, immediately feeling out of place. He wasn't used to dealing with other people's emotions. Antauri was the guy who handled that.

"Do you want to talk about it? I could go and get Antauri…" Chiro shook his head, causing Otto to slump over ever so slightly. "Oh, ok…" As the green primate turned to leave, Chiro called out.

"No, Otto, wait! I-I do want to talk about it." Otto turned his head around, right foot half out the door.

"Really?" Chiro simply nodded, but it was enough for Otto to turn around and close the door. The green monkey walked over to Chiro and sat on the bed next to him. The two sat in silence for awhile, each waiting for the other to speak. Finally, Chiro worked up the courage to begin.

"It's my entire fault, Otto. All mine." Otto looked confused when he replied.

"What's your fault, Chiro?" The black haired teen looked at Otto, tears forming in his eyes as he spoke.

"Jinmay, Otto! I left her alone to guard the entire planet!" Otto nodded in understanding, but Chiro continued his rant.

"An entire planet by herself! What was I thinking? We have a hard enough time with the six of us. What made me think she could handle it on her own? I'm not saying she's weak. She's one of the strongest people I know. But still…" Chiro turned to Otto; tears were now flowing down his face. Otto placed what he hoped was a comforting hand on Chiro's shoulder.

"You didn't leave her, Chiro. You simply trusted her with all your heart. Love makes you do that." Chiro turned to Otto, the tears beginning to abate.

"Y-you really think so, Otto?" Otto thought for a moment, thinking about all the times he had trusted his friends, who he loved dearly, to do something. He smiled and gave Chiro a thumbs-up.

"Sure do. And besides, who would have thought anything would happen to Shuggazoom when the Skeleton King wasn't there? Don't worry, Chiro. We'll get her back." Chiro smiled, pulling Otto into a hug.

"Thanks, Otto." Chiro let go of the green monkey, who then made his way out of the room. Chiro lay back down on his bed and stared at the ceiling again. He was suddenly very tired, and decided to go to sleep. His last coherent thought before dropping off into the land of dreams was this:

I haven't shown you how much I love you, Jinmay. I have to do this, or I'll never forgive myself. I'll show you the first chance I get. So please, hang on.

Well, there you go. One down, 99 more to go. Please read, review, and request.

I NEED requests. If you have an idea or a pairing request, let me know. I'll do all of them, as long as it's not slash or emo. I just don't go there. Sorry.

Steelers and Halo 3 rock.
