Alright, I didn't change a lot. The last sentence that was added I deleted because how does Cortex know where Nina is? If you put in how Cortex figures out that she's at the island then you can have him tell N. Gin to set the coordinates for the island. If you don't, it just seems like there's a plot hole.

Summary- Crash and Nina finally meet as people not enemies but what will happen next.

'Thoughts'

"Conversation"

Chapter 4

Night began to set in and the bright moon rose over the calm sea near the island. Its gentle light peered into an open window rousing Nina from her pleasant slumber. "Umm...what time is it?" the girl asked quietly. "It's nighttime" a voice replied. She looked up with blurred vision to the source of the voice. Rubbing her eyes and looking again, Nina saw the one she loved, Crash. The bandicoot looked down at her with a smile "How long have you been awake?" Nina asked. "Long enough to see a beautiful site," Crash answered in a quiet and caring tone. As Nina heard this she slowly shifted up to kiss Crash squarely on the lips.

Meanwhile, Coco was in the living room watching Crunch do pushups and still trying to convince him that Nina wouldn't do anything evil while she stayed with them. "Crunch, why can't you let the past go?" Coco asked "You don't know what it's like to be experimented on by Cortex. It messes with your mind in a terrible way and you have to fight every day to not turn into the hateful person he created you to be." Crunch retorted, looking over at the blonde bandicoot sitting on her laptop "I may not be able to understand your viewpoint, but she does. In fact, it's even worse for her since it washer own fatherthat punished her for being human. It's for that reason that I feel she should be allowed to live her life as she sees fit. If that means her being with Crash, so be it," Coco said in a solemn tone. "Well, I guess you're right. I have been a little too harsh on her, but I'm not saying I put my complete trust in her" Crunch said, continuing his workout regime "It's enough that you're going to at least try and get along with her," Coco answered.

As Coco and Crunch finished their conversation, Crash and Nina got out of their comfortable embrace and climbed out of the warm bed. The pair stretched and worked out the kinks. As they finished Crash turned to face his love, noticing that the girl was looking down at her metallic hands. Oblivious to Crash's stare, Nina's mind began to fill with her recurring nightmare.

Nina Nightmare

There she was stood hugging the man, well bandicoot, of her dreams. She was enjoying the feel of his soft, warm fur and his loving embrace on a beautiful beach when her father had found them. With a snarl, her father ripped Crash away from her. He did this to hurt her. He also did it to scare away the things she held dear so much that they would decide they never wanted to see her again. This was what he had always done with everything she loved. Her pets, most of her friends, and now the one thing she loved the most.

Nina kept having this horrible vision play over and over again in her mind. The girl didn't know why, but she knew it terrified her. "Nina, you okay?" Crash asked very concerned. As Nina faced him she replied "I'm fine, Crash, but can I ask you something?" The bandicoot nodded "What do you truly think of me?" Nina asked hoping for a good answer "I think you're the most beautiful girl in the world. I think you are the most amazing and wonderful person I will ever have the pleasure of being with and I love you, metal hands and all." Crash spoke softly taking hold of her metallic hands before pulling her into his tight embrace. This made Nina swell even more with happiness and reveal a rare full blown smile. As she and Crash once again held each other, Nina tried to think of a time where she had been filled with so much joy and love. She soon realized it was when she had seen her mother for the last time. The girl held her love a little tighter at the memory and not wanting to let go of this moment.

Nina and Crash separated from their embrace one again and Crash said "I'm going to take a shower okay?" Nina simply nodded in reply. This left Nina some time to think and wonder where and how far she and Crash's relationship would go. She hoped that it would play like a dream she had once.

Nina's Dream

"Welcome friends," the minister spoke as he looked at the two people standing before him and smiled. "Today, we are gathered here to join Crash and Nina in holy matrimony." Crash turned his head to face his bride, smiling as he placed his hand in hers. She turned to face him, a subtle tear dripping from the corner of her eye. "Do you Crash take Nina to be your lawfully wedded wife, to have and to hold, for better or for worse, for richer or for poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish; from this day forward until death do you part?"

"I do," said Crash without hesitation.

"And do you Nina take Crash to be your lawfully wedded husband, to have and to hold, for better or for worse, for richer or for poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish; from this day forward until death do you part?"

"I...I do," said Nina as Crash gently squeezed her hand to comfort her.

"Then I pronounce you husband and wife. You may kiss the bride" the minister announced.

"No need to tell me twice!" Crash said as he kissed Nina square on the lips

The girl sighed merrily as her mind began to fill with other ideas of her and Crash's potential life together and waited for her love to finish showering.

Cortex sat in his lab trying to figure out yet another plan to take over the world and destroy his nemesis, Crash Bandicoot. He growled as he thought how the bandicoot had ruined his previous plans. Suddenly, the mad man was pulled out his thoughts when his right hand man, Dr. N. Gin brought him a message."Who could possibly be sending me mail?"the scientist thought as he opened it. Quickly reading the contents of the letter, Cortex quickly discovered that it was from his alma mater, Madame Amberly's Academy of Evil, informing that Nina had run away.

Crushing the letter in his head, Cortex called to N. Gin. "Ready a ship as soon as you can. We must find my daughter and teach her a lesson." "Yes, Dr. Cortex," the lackey answered.
