Aaron Stone: No Second Chances

Prologue: Not Meant To Be

A Fanfiction By Lauraac2110

"I'm sorry, Aaron," T. Abner Hall sighs. "It's just not meant to be."

I nod in reply but, because I don't trust myself to say anything else to him, I remain silent.

"Sir, if I may..." S.T.A.N begins.

"Yes, leave us, Aaron," Mr Hall commands. I nod again, turn and leave the room.

It isn't meant to be this way. They weren't meant to forget. I've made a big mistake so I should be living with the consequences right now. But, no.

Hall Industries have intervened and everything is going to go back to the way it had been only a few days before. I'm supposed to be happy that I'm not going to be ruthlessly hunted by the Omega Defiance because they had learned my real identity. I'm supposed to be happy that I can live my quite normal life for a little while longer. I'm not, though.

I don't like my life of secrets. I don't like lying to my parents, my brother or my classmates. I thought that this was going to be a chance to be more honest and more genuine with my family. Obviously, though, it's clear that I'm going to be returning to the life of secrets again soon despite everything which has happened over the past few days.

I stop in the corridor for a moment and sigh. I bet that you're wondering how this all began right now. Well, it began like all the other messes in my life. It began with another mission for Aaron Stone. This one, though, is the one that I'll remember for the rest of my days as the mission which nearly cost me my life. This one is also the one that I'll remember as the mission after which I was given second chance.

There's just one problem.

In my line of work, there are meant to be no second chances after you've made such a big mistake like I did.
