Future Bound

Chapter 15: Home Again

"So we have an agreement then," asked Dylan

"We would be honoured to help you restore peace to the universe," said the Quadrion Elder, "and you need not thank us for helping you with that Neitzschean rogue."

"Uh, oh I was just,"

"About to thank us, we know, come back and visit anytime, and if you need us don't hesitate to send word."

"All right then we're all set," said Dylan.

With negotiations done and a new world added to the New Commonwealth, the Andromeda went on its way.

Somewhere on the ship.

"He picked Beka?"

"So what?" asked Andromeda

"I love him," said Rommie sadly

"You've become too emotional, " said Andromeda.

" What's wrong with that?"

"We are a warship, with a built in artificial intelligence, that is all."

"How can you say that?" asked Rommie.

"Because it's true," said Andromeda.

"But that was only one future right?" asked Rommie, "it wasn't set in stone."

"Get over it," said Andromeda, "you're not human."

^^^

Training Room.

"Something wrong Tyr?" asked Rev Bem walking up to the Neitzschean.

"There's nothing wrong Magog," he answered.

"Whatever you need to tell yourself."

"What's that supposed to mean?"

"Nothing," said Rev

"There's a 50/50 chance she's out there," said Tyr.

"Terra you mean?"

"Who else."

"Well before we left she told you that she's find you if she existed here," said Rev.

"Between the next twelve to eighteen years."

"And if she doesn't?"

"She was a fine warrior, strong and intelligent," said Tyr.

"I'll take your word for it," said Rev, "I spent most of my time with my future self at Tarn Vedra, I heard you were all attacked."

"We lived," commented Tyr.

"And got back safely," said Rev, "what's meant to happen will happen, and when it does, so be it."

"Is that supposed to cheer me up?"

"I do what I can," said Rev turning around and giving the Neitschean back his privacy.

^^^

Machine Shop.

"So what's the likelihood of all that happening to us?" asked Harper.

"Could be anything," answered Trance.

"Come on you know don't you?"

"It's not specific, Harper."

"Hey, Ing didn't tell you anything did she?" asked Harper.

"Tell me what?" asked Trance innocently

"But you already know don't you?"

"That you're going to confess your undying love for me?"

"I was going to start with kissing you but that confessing thing," said Harper smiling, "I think I could work thatin somewhere."

"Well then get over here," said Trance smiling as she watched him stand up.

"Is thing close enough?" asked Harper backing her against a wall.

"Possibly," she said wrapping her arms around his neck and pulling him in for a full kiss. As their mouths fought for control, clothes went flying everywhere in a race to see who could get who's clothes off first. And as they fell to the ground, Harper pulled down a tarp from one of his inventions, to use as a make-shift blanket.

Observation deck.

"Do you know how long I've been looking for you?" asked Beka coming up from behind Dylan, who was staring off, literally, into space.

"How long?" asked Dylan.

"No idea," she said, "that was some trip."

"Yeah it was."

"He was a freak wasn't he?" asked Beka smiling

"Got it from you undoubtedly," said Dylan, "what he get from me?"

"Staying calm in an emergency situation, and all of your annoying leadership qualities."

"Do you think that brown was his natural hair colour?"

"No idea, I walked in on him entertaining Ingrid with neon pink hair," said Beka laughing.

"Oh my god." They both laughed.

"He was cute though," said Beka

"And headstrong," said Dylan.

"Yeah."

"Hey, Beka," said Dylan.

"Yeah?"

"Am I stupid?"

She bust out laughing, "He was right wasn't he, that would get to you."

"Well?"

"Dylan you may be crazy by trying to piece the universe back together but we would be long dead if you weren't as smart as you are, so shut up."

"Excuse me?" he asked slightly taken aback.

"Come on," she said taking Dylan by the hand.

"Where?"

"To get really, really drunk," she said laughing.

"Well then by all means lead the way," he said.

Then taking one last look out into space, the two of them walked out of the Obs. Deck hand in hand.

End.

A/N: I'm Done! Whoo! That's the end. I hope you all enjoyed it and I know it's a been a long wait. I think I was a bit mean to Rommie in the end, I feel kinda bad…but if I do a sequel and I mean IF, [I will need some major begging and a ton of reveiws (only 29 so far^_~)], then maybe I could do something for her…

Thanx to all of you for reviewing, that just proves how much cooler you are than most people! Thanks again! Bye for now^^
