Sorry sorry sorry!! I meant to get this out there soooo much sooner, but like I said in the last chapter, work started and my free time got taken from me! This is kind of a lame chapter…I wanted to write more, but I wanted to get it up, because I felt bad. SO I hope you enjoy anyway!

Gary was grinning up at us with that oh so punchable face of his, looking like he won the lottery. I wondered if I aimed myself correctly, if I could somehow land a flying kick right in his crotch.

That would be so awesome!

Misty on the other hand, didn't seem nearly as angry as I was, "Gary?! What are you doing here?"

Gary crossed his arms and closed his eyes, opening one mockingly up in our direction, "Your friend called to tell me to pretend you two were spending the night at my house, in case your Mom asked me about it," he shrugged haughtily, "Of course, I had to come see if Squinty was kidding me or not, and here you are! Right when I thought you couldn't get any more dense, Ashy boy, you get you and your girlfriend stuck on Grandpa's roof!"

Misty probably sensed my rising anger, and quickly jumped in before I got a chance to try out the Roof-Jump-Dick-Kick.

Awesome name for it, huh? I know.

"I'm not his girlfriend," Misty rolled her eyes, "And yes, Ash is an idiot, we've all known it for a while now. However, we have been trapped up on this roof all night with no food, water or bathrooms, so please help us get down."

"I could do that," Gary smirked, "for a price."

I slapped my forehead with my palm, "Oh no, good grief."

Misty's eyes narrowed suspiciously, "What kind of a price?"

"I don't know… I'm not sure if you two want to get down quite badly enough just yet!"

"You've got to be kidding me," I moaned, "Misty, don't encourage him, he's not gonna help us, he's just doing this to taunt us."

"Be quiet, Ash!" She whispered irritably, "This could be our one chance to get down any time soon, and you will not ruin it!"

She crossed her arms and glared right back down at Gary's smug face, "What is it, Gary? Because if you're just screwing with us, then at least give us the benefit of knowing so we can ignore your ugly facade and go on with our lives."

Wow. I had to admit I was impressed. I could fight with Gary, sure, but there was no way I would have the guts to say that kind of thing to him.

"Hmph," Gary turned his nose up and faced his back to us, "Well fine. Maybe I wont even offer you a chance to get down if you're going to be like that."

"Good!" She yelled back, "We don't want your help!"

Oh no, "Uh, Misty…I'm all for not getting help from Gary…but don't we want help from Gary?"

"Not if he's going to be an arrogant, selfish, pigheaded-"

"Hey!" Gary called up from the ground, "I'm still here, you know!"

"Good!" She screamed back, then began yelling louder down at him, "Arrogant! Selfish! Pigheaded-!"

I sighed. As much as I loved seeing Gary getting ripped a new one by Misty, I knew it was time to break this up before Misty and I had to spend the rest of our lives on the roof.

Talk about me screwing everything up!

I didn't want to draw attention to myself, so I stood up quietly, and lightly touched her shoulder to get her attention. She instantly stiffened at my touch, and spun around to look at me with wide eyes.

I felt bad for starling her like that, so I smiled apologetically, "Sorry, Mist, didn't mean to scare ya," I looked at Gary, sighed and looked back up at her, "I know you don't want to get help from Gary, trust me, I don't either! But like you said, it might be the only option."

With one last glance at Gary on the ground below, Misty sighed, "You're right, but if he wants us to do anything embarrassing or ridicules, I'm out."

"Right. Alright, Gary," I called to his irritated expression below, "We're in. What do you want us to do?"

"About time!" He threw his hands up in the air, "All that, and I wasn't even going to make you guys do anything bad!"

Misty rolled her eyes, "Just tell us, Gary."

Gary crossed his arms, and that ever so obnoxious look returned to his obnoxious face, "I'll go get the ladder and let you down…" He paused for dramatic effect.

"Yeah?" We asked in unison.

"…When you share a tiny little kiss with your girlfriend!"


Yes yes, I'm sorry this chapter was so much crap, I promise the next one will be better…and will move the plot…and be up before Christmas! Anyway, hope you liked, and don't forget to review!
