One Sweet Day

He finally tore himself away from her lifeless body. He was in shock. She was gone...but she couldn't be! Five minutes ago she had been alive and well, just as happy as he was that Alex was safe...but now she's gone...it was unbelievable...He wasn't ready to let go...there was so much he still wanted to tell her...but he couldn't...


Sorry I never told you
All I wanted to say
But now it's too late to hold you
Cuz you've flown away
So far away


She was floating away from her family. She willed herself to go back to them, but she couldn't. She had died. She had never seen the broad with the knife coming. It was her own fault, really. She had been paying attention to Alex being safe. She forgot that those two ancients were still walking around...but it was too late to worry about it now. Oh, God. Rick was crying. She had never, ever, seen him cry. She never wanted to...She had to turn her face away...She called his name, even though she knew he couldn't hear her. But he stopped crying suddenly. Evie was shocked....maybe he couldn't actually hear her voice, but he knew she was still with him...


Never had I imagined
Living without your smile
Feeling and knowing you hear me
It keeps me alive
Alive


He felt her spirit with him. He was sure it was her. He knew what he had to do. He hugged Alex, and left him and Jonathan with Evelyn....He had some serious revenge to take care of.


And I know you're shining down on me from Heaven
Like so many friends we've lost along the way
And I know eventually we'll be together
One sweet day


Evelyn saw Rick get up and walk towards the temple. What was he doing? He couln't possibly go in there. He could be killed! But wait, she thought, He needs to destroy Imhotep. If he doesn't, the world will end. But he can't die in the process. He HAD to stay alive...god, she missed him so much....


Darling, I never showed you
Assumed you'd always be there
I took your presence for granted
But I always cared
And I miss the love we shared

And you'll know I'm looking down on you from Heaven
Like all of the friends you've lost along the way
And I know eventually we'll be together
One sweet day...


As he walked towards the sound of the huge gong, Rick thought about Evelyn. All of their precious memories. Their kisses, their fights, the way the made up, the son they made together...he knew he would never be able to kiss her again...the thought was enough to make him collapse....how could he go on?


Although the sun will never shine the same
I'll always look to a brighter day
Lord I know when I lay me down to sleep
You will always listen as I pray...

And I know you're shining down on me from Heaven
Like so many friends we've lost along the way
And I know eventually we'll be together
One sweet day


She was so busy looking down on what Rick was doing, she didn't notice that Alex and Jonathan had picked up her body and run inside the temple. She watched him as he fought with Imhotep. He was obviously trying with all of his strength, but it seemed that his strength had deteriorated...suddenly she felt a tingle...and she felt herself falling back toward the Earth...back to her own body...


And you'll know I'm looking down on you from Heaven
Like so many friends you've lost along the way
And I know eventually we'll be together
One sweet day...


He was losing. Badly. He was using all of the strength he had, but he wasn't completely himself anymore. Evie was his other half, and she had been ripped from him....Oh, no. Now there's something else to fight...something about five times bigger than Imhotep...He thought of Evie. She was the only thing that was keeping him alive. He HAD to stay alive.


Sorry I never told you
All I wanted to say...


She was alive! Her genius son had brought her back! After a run-in with an old opponent, she raced towards where Rick was. She found him, and she called his name....


Rick was doing his best. But the Scorpion King and flung him across the room...he was in pain, his body couldn't take much more...but then he heard his name...Evie called his name! SHE WAS ALIVE!! It seems that that one sweet day was TODAY!
He fought with his newly-regenerated strength....she was alive!!!





**And you know the rest.....=)**
