Chapter Ten: Saving the World.

I clung to the person closest to me, which unfortunately was Jake as we all just stood there gaping up at the alien, I looked over at Tom.

"What are we gonna do?" I asked. We didn't exactly have the resources to take on a giant alien.

"Who's little now Earth maggots? Pretty cool huh?" The alien laughed.

"It's over. You lose." He said. He began walking away, the ground shook violently as he did so.

"Where's he going?" Lee asked.

"Wherever he wants." I breathed out. Tom dropped his gun as we all began freaking out.

"What are we gonna do?" Art asked.

"I don't know!" I exclaimed. Jake ran his hands through his hair. Ha, he looked kinda cute when he was stressed. Wait! Bad Rory! Don't think that! I shook my head clear of those thoughts.

"We're dead! There's no way we can survive against that!" Lee said, pointing to the monster.

"Don't say that. We can't give up." I replied. Hannah and Beth looked scared to death. I looked over at Tom who had drifted away for some reason. He stared after the alien.

"Tom?" I asked. He ignored me and looked down at the ground. His head snapped up and he looked at us,

"Guys. Listen. We don't have much time!" He said, gathering us in a circle. He turned to Snugs.

"Sparks. Can anything go in that machine?" He asked.

"Theoretically." Sparks replied. Oh…. I don't like that word… It's not a guarantee. Guarantees are better that theories… Just saying.

"Okay! Good. Art, Lee. I'm gonna need a controller." Tom said. He turned to Beth and I.

"Beth, Rory. I need you to keep the other aliens on lock down." He instructed.

"Okay." Beth replied.

"Got it." I nodded. I looked at the giant one and saw him stick a huge orange stick in the ground. I flinched. We gotta hurry.

"Jake. Come with me. Hannah, stay with Sparks." Tom finished telling us what to do.

"Rory. Come on!" Beth said. I nodded and looked at Jake, he sent me a smile which I returned. Beth grabbed my arm and we ran over to the ugly alien who was still unconscious. I grabbed the paintball gun from the ground and walked over and stood behind her, ready to shoot if it all of a sudden sprung to life or something. Beth dropped to her knees and took off her belt.

"You are one ugly alien." She said. I laughed and nodded in agreement. I heard a thump behind me, I spun to see the female had gotten out of the trashcan.

"He may be ugly. But he's mine!" She exclaimed. I started shooting at her.

"You don't know when to quit do you?" I exclaimed, shooting at her. I missed her though. She came at me, baring her claws.

"Beth!" I squeaked as the paintball gun ran out of ammo. I threw the gun to the side and backed away. She ran past me and clawed my leg. I let out a cry of pain.

"SHIT!" I cursed.

"Rory!" Beth exclaimed. I waved her off.

"Focus on them!" I said. She nodded and grabbed the tennis racket next to her. She swiped at the alien, and narrowly missed her. She went to attack her face, but Beth blocked her with the racket. She began to slice it with her nails. I crawled over to help her, as Beth threw the alien down. She leaped back at her and jumped on her back. She grabbed her hair and Beth spun around. The alien was flung to the ground. She looked down at her hand.

"You broke my nail!" The alien hissed. She charged again, but Beth pulled back her fist. She was gonna punch an alien...

"I don't care!" Beth grunted as she punched her. The alien fell to the floor. Beth looked at her nail and bit it off and spit it out. She turned to me. I was gaping at her. Beth was one tough chick….

"You okay?" She asked. I nodded and looked down. I was bleeding a lot.

"I've dealt with it." I replied, pointing to my neck. She looked unsure but didn't say anything. Another tremor made me fall. I looked over to see the alien had stuck another stick in the ground. What the hell are those for? I looked back over at Beth, she was holding up. I looked back at the alien in time to see him press a button and send 5 beams of light into the sky. Oh my God….

"They're beacons…. He's calling the invasion." I breathed. I heard Jake yell something similar.

"We are so dead." Beth muttered. I nodded in agreement. Hannah walked over to us. She grabbed Beth's hand and stared up at the sky.

"It's them… They'll all be coming soon.." She said. I looked down at her… Was that really necessary? And she said it really creepy…

"I'm going to check on the boys." I said. Ignoring the pain in my leg, I ran over to where Jake and Tom were to find Tom on a light pole and Jake shooting the giant alien. I swear these boys are trying to give me a heart attack.

"ARE YOU TRYING TO GET YOURSELVES KILLED?" I yelled at them. I was ignored. I watched as Jake ran through the aliens legs, the alien spun to face him. The twins ran up to me. Art held a controller.

"Where'd you find it?" I asked.

"Over there." Lee replied, pointing off towards the house. I nodded.

"BRING IT!" Jake yelled up at the alien. Pain surged through my leg all of a sudden. I leaned on Lee. He held me up.

"TOM TAKE THE SHOT!" Jake yelled. I looked up at Tom and saw him handling the gun. Don't fall… Don't fall… Don't fall.

"His collar is still in the way!" He shouted. Then I saw it. The ugly one was now growing.

"LOOK OUT!" I shouted, pointing over at him. Jake looked at me then followed my arm.

"THE UGLY ONE GOT BIG!" Jake yelled. Tom looked back at it. The alien stomped closer to us.

"HURRY TOM!" I yelled.

"DO IT!" Jake said. Tom pointed the gun up a bit and shot.

"What was that?" Jake asked. The alien all of a sudden fell. I jumped a little. The leader shot up and turned to the tall one. He punched him in the face.

"Commander?" The tall, ugly one asked. The commander didn't respond, he then noticed the twins and I.

"Puny humans! Is that all you have?" He asked them, holding the leader back. Lee had the arms swinging madly. The tall one punched him. Art punch back. Each hit they took, the ground shook violently. I clung to Lee to stay standing.

"Whoa…" I breathed. The tall one picked up the fat one and slammed him onto the ground. I ran over to watch it, I ran back over to Bethany and we stood opposite to the boys.

"Sparks! Reverse the machine!" Tom shouted. I noticed he had since jumped from the pole onto the ground. We watched as the ugly one pretty much owned the other guy.

"Nothing's working!" Art exclaimed.

"Give it to me!" Tom exclaimed, he snatched the remote from him. He did a move and lifted his knee. We watched as the fat one kneed the tall one where the sun don't shine.

"Oooh! Crude." Art cringed .

"But effective." Lee added.

"Awesome!" Jake exclaimed, squeezing his cousins shoulders. We all watched as the aliens tumbled towards the machines.

"Reversed!" Sparks declared. I smiled happily, and watched as the aliens fell into the machine and instantly began shrinking…. And so did the machine. It wilted and crumbled before our eyes. After a second it shrank, then exploded blasting us backwards. After it cleared, Beth helped me up and we ran towards the others.

"BETHANY!" Hannah exclaimed.

"Hannah! Are you okay?" Beth exclaimed back. They hugged, I ran and embraced Jake. He picked me up and spun me around. He set me down and smiled.

"You were great Rory!" He exclaimed. I smiled back. All of a sudden, his lips were crushed to mine. At first I was shocked, but then I found myself kissing back. What the hell was I doing? Kissing Jacob Pearson? Part of me wanted to pull away, slap him and run. But the other part of me wanted to stay in that position forever. I went with the second one. He pulled away all too soon.

"S-s-so were y-y-you guys!" I replied. He chuckled and kissed my forehead. I smiled and we turned to see the shocked faces of the twins, Hannah looked grossed out, Tom looked a little annoyed and Beth was smirking.

"I knew it! I knew you liked each other!" She said. I felt my face heat up and all of a sudden I was thankful for the dark. There was no way I could like him...

'Yes there is.' Argh, that damn voice is back.

'I don't like him!' I argued.

'You're right... You love him!' Okay, it's official... I'm insane. But that damn voice was right... I did love him... Even if he could be an idiot...

"Guys look. The rest are coming." Beth's voice snapped me out of my thoughts. I looked up at the sky and saw many little dots.

"There are so many of them." I whispered. None of us moved, we just stared at the millions of aliens that were coming to invade. I looked down at Snugs, he looked down at his wrist and clicked a button.

"Retreat! Retreat! The machine has been destroyed! We have been outsmarted by the hu-mans! The invasions has failed!" He said, signaling for the aliens to fly away. He turned back and smiled at us. We smiled back at him. We looked up at the aliens and watched them fly away.

"Oh thank God…" I sighed happily, watching the last of them disappear. We slowly walked towards Sparks.

"It's done… It's over…" Tom muttered in a dazed voice. I laughed.

"It's all over. We won." I agreed. Sparks looked up at us, slightly confused. He scratched his head.

"Thanks Snugs. For everything." Tom said to him as we all gathered around him. Jake placed an arm around me to help me walk.

"You're all right for a space maggot. I'm gonna miss you." Jake smiled down at him.

"Miss him?" Hannah asked. I gave her a confused look. It wasn't like he was going to stay.

"He's staying here with us." She said, she knelt down and looked at Snugs.

"Please don't go. You can stay here and be part of our family." She said. Aw… That's so cute… A little four armed alien for a pet. Most kids have cats or dogs or fish… maybe a bird or a turtle or something. No, the Pearson's have an alien. Sparks pulled out something small, but then he expanded it to reveal a picture of him, with 3 people I can assume were his wife and kids. She smiled at the picture, so did I.

"Hannah, I think he already has a family." I said. Sparks smiled at her.

"My family." He said. I chuckled.

"All right. Let's get you back up to your ship." Tom said. Sparks nodded and we all walked back into the house. We walked upstairs and into the attic. We climbed out the window and looked at Snugs one more time. Hannah knelt down and handed him her sock monkey. He smiled and took it from her.

"Goodbye Hannah." He said, he reached up and hugged her.

"Aw.." I whispered. He was just too cute! She hugged him back. They pulled away from each other and he walked over to his ship. Hannah ran over to us and hugged Beth's waist. Snugs flew towards us and we all ducked down. He did this twice before flying away. We smiled as he did so.

"I'm gonna miss him." I said.

"We all are." Beth said. I nodded and we all went back inside.

"Okay Rory, we need to clean you up." Beth said as we walked into mine and the boys room.

"How come I'm the only one who was injured this bad?" I asked. Jake laughed. Tom came in with the first aid kit and we cleaned it up.

"Man, these are really deep…" He muttered examining them closely.

"So? Just throw a Band-Aid on it and get it over with." I said.

"No, Rory…. I think you need stitches." He replied. I stared down at him, eyes wide.

"I don't think so." I snapped.

"Rory. You have to." Jake said. I shook my head. I refused to go to the hospital willingly! I've spent too much of my time there unwillingly.

Jake's POV.

(Again, written by Tyler)

"That was awesome!" I exclaimed at Tom as he took down the other alien. I looked for Rory, I saw her with Bethany. Her leg was bleeding badly. The girl must have gotten her again. The space maggots fell into the machine and it started shrinking. The chick came and got the ugly one out of there, but they left the leader. The machine shrunk all the way and blew up. The force knocked us backward, I jumped up and ran towards the girls as they ran towards us. I ran straight to Rory and caught her in a hug.

"You were great Rory!" I exclaimed as I spun her around in a circle, she giggled and I set her down. She smiled up at me, and on impulse, I leaned down and kissed her. She didn't push me away or do anything I expected her to do, she kissed back. SHE KISSED BACK! I pulled away and she smiled again.

"S-s-so were y-y-you guys!" She stuttered out. I chuckled and kissed her forehead lightly. I turned to see my little brothers shocked faces, Hannah looked disgusted, Tom looked annoyed and Beth was smirking. I gave her a confused look.

"I knew it! I knew you liked each other!" She said. I placed an arm around her shoulders. Then Beth looked up at the sky.

"Guys look. The rest are coming." She said. We all looked up.

"There are so many of them." I said. We all just stared up at the sky. I wasn't ready or in the condition to take on millions of aliens. Sparks all of a sudden clicked his watch.

"Retreat! Retreat! The machine has been destroyed! We have been outsmarted by the hu-mans! The invasions has failed!" He said, signaling for the aliens to fly away. He turned back and smiled at us. We smiled back at him. We looked up at the aliens and watched them fly away.

"Oh thank God…" I heard Rory sigh happily, watching the last of them disappear. We slowly walked towards Sparks.

"It's done… It's over…" Tom muttered.

"It's all over. We won." Rory agreed. Sparks looked up at us, slightly confused. He scratched his head.

"Thanks Snugs. For everything." Tom said to him as we all gathered around him.

"You're all right for a space maggot. I'm gonna miss you." I smiled down at him.

"Miss him?" Hannah asked. I gave her a confused look. It wasn't like he was going to stay.

"He's staying here with us." She said, she knelt down and looked at Snugs.

"Please don't go. You can stay here and be part of our family." She said. Hannah wanted a pet alien? Why doesn't that surprise me? Rory smiled as he pulled out a picture of him and his family

"Hannah, I think he already has a family." She said. Sparks smiled at her.

"My family." He said. She chuckled.

"All right. Let's get you back up to your ship." Tom said. Snugs nodded and we all walked back into the house. We walked upstairs and into the attic. We climbed out the window and looked at Snugs one more time. Hannah knelt down and handed him her sock monkey. He smiled and took it from her.

"Goodbye Hannah." He said, he reached up and hugged her.

"Aw.." Rory whispered. I hugged her tighter to me. They let go of each other and Hannah ran to Bethany. Snuggles got into his spaceship and flew away

"I'm gonna miss him." Rory said.

"We all are." Beth agreed. She nodded back and we all went back inside.

"Okay Rory, we need to clean you up." Beth said as we walked into our room.

"How come I'm the only one who was injured this bad?" She asked, I laughed as Tom went to get the kit. He came back in and started wiping off the blood. I helped.

"Man, these are really deep…" He muttered examining them closely. I nodded in agreement.

"So? Just throw a Band-Aid on it and get it over with." She said..

"No, Rory…. I think you need stitches." He replied. Her eyes grew wide.

"I don't think so!" She snapped.

"Rory, you need too," I said. She shook her head defiantly. I sighed and held her down.

"Tom. Go get the adults." I instructed. She kicked and squirmed, but I kept her still.

"What's going on?" Aunt Nina asked, walking in.

"Well Rory was trying to get something under the bed, and these nails that were sticking out cut her leg open." I explained, pointing to the three nails under Tom's bed. They actually were sticking out. Aunt Nina sighed.

"You haven't even been here a day and you already need a trip to the hospital. Let's go." She said. Rory sulked as I picked her up and carried her to the car. We got her stitched up and left the hospital.

"Adults are so oblivious..." Rory muttered as we walked into the house. I had held her hand the entire time and none of the adults said a word. I laughed and nodded in agreement. When we got back to the house, us kids went upstairs while the adults stayed downstairs.

"Okay, I think we can all agree that what's happened today can't be told to anyone!" Tom said.

"Psh, yeah... Like anyone would anyone would believe us." Rory scoffed.

"Let's all swear we won't tell anyone." Tom said. We all exchagned looks and nodded.

"We swear." The twins said.

"I promise." Rory said.

"Scouts honor." I agreed.

"I swear." Beth said.

"Me too." Hannah agreed. After that, everyone left to their respective rooms and we climbed into bed. Rory was out within second.

"Jake? You up?" Tom asked.

"Yeah, what's up?" I replied.

"Don't hurt Rory." He said. I laughed.

"I promise I won't." I said.

"You better not." He warned I nodded and slowly drifted to sleep.
