So far Bugs and Lola are hating each other's guts. They know deep down that they love each other but they haven't been showing it lately. But will they put their differences aside when something terrible happens to someone they love?
Thursday morning Bugs went into the garage to get something out of his car. He hadn't been in there since yesterday afternoon when he got Lola's Ferrari and was surprised to find a sheet over the Volkswagen. He pulled it off and his eyes got wide at what he saw.
Lola was upstairs helping Kristy get dressed totally oblivious to what Bugs was doing downstairs.
"LOLA!" Bugs called.
He sounded mad. Lola was afraid to go down. "I'll be right back Kristy…" She stood up and went down stairs. She paused around the corner from the garage door and sighed. "Okay Lola, you can do this. Think of it as ripping off a band-aid…lord help me now!" She went into the garage and found Bugs leaning up against his messed up car not looking very happy.
"When were you gonna tell me about this?"
"I'm sorry alright! I had to pick up Melissa and this drunk dude crashed into us…" Bugs was still glaring at her. "Bugs I'm sorry. I'll pay for it myself if that's what you want," she pleaded.
"So my own wife doesn't even trust me enough to tell me about my car?" Bugs asked icily.
"I didn't want you to be mad at me…"
"You don't think I'm mad now? That I had to find out about this myself because you couldn't frickin tell me? I could've taken it to the shop last night and have it back by next week!"
"You could've asked you know."
"You could've taken your own car then I would've ruined my own!"
"But you didn't ask and now my car is ruined."
"You act like you care about that stupid car more than me!" Lola exclaimed furiously.
Bugs was taken aback by that one. "I never said that Lo!"
"You implied it!" with that Lola stomped out of the garage and back upstairs.
Later that morning Bugs and Lola walked into the Loo separately because Lola had to drop the kids off at the elementary school (although if that weren't the case they probably would've came separately anyway).
Bugs walked down the hallway with a scowl on his face and his hands in his pockets. When he was halfway to his office Daffy ran up to him. Bugs ignored him and stared straight forward.
"Hey Bugsth," Daffy said. He saw the look on Bugs' face. "Ha, I see you found out about your car huh? Man that was nasty, I'm surprised she could even drive it home like that. It was a nice car too, the value probably dropped at least $10,000…"
Bugs was steaming on the inside. "Would you shut up?" he said through his teeth. "I'm not in the mood to listen to you act like an idiot!" He stomped off to his office.
Daffy shook his head in pity. "Rude."
That evening Lola decided their fight had gone too far. She wanted it to stop, she didn't like being mad at him. She knew some of the things she said were unforgivable but she said those things out of anger, she didn't mean them. She was constantly looking out of the window waiting for him to get home that evening.
"Mommy," Kristy said.
"Yes?" Lola said looking out of the huge window in the hallway.
"When is daddy coming home?"
"He should be here in a few minutes," Lola said.
"Okay." She left probably to go tell her brother.
Lola jumped when she heard the door unlock. She ran to it and Bugs came in. "Hi," she said sort of timidly.
He slammed the door behind him and didn't answer. She raised her eyebrows in confusion. "Are you okay?" He didn't answer her, just headed for the stairs.
Kristy ran back down the hallway. "Hi daddy!"
"Hey Kristy," Bugs said. He started to go upstairs.
Kristy gave Lola a questioning look. "What's wrong with him?"
Lola shook her head. "I don't know." She started to go upstairs after him. She found him in their bedroom sitting on the bed with his head in his hands. "Bugs, what's wrong?" she said as she placed her hand on his shoulder in attempt to comfort him.
He shoved her off. "Why the hell do you care?" he said harshly.
Lola was taken aback by his outburst. "Because I'm your wife…and I care about you."
"Oh really?" He stood up. "Did you care when you were yelling me out about every damn thing in the world? Or how about when you didn't have sense enough to tell me about my own car?"
Lola was mad now but she kept her tone even. "I told you I was sorry about the car. And you weren't exactly an angel yourself you know."
"There you go; you always have to play the innocent one!" He started to come towards her. "You never do anything wrong and have to put it all on other people!" All of his anger towards her and just life in general was just pouring out of him. He knew he should stop but he was on a roll.
Lola backed away as he came closer. "I never…!"
"Why can't you just stop being a bitch for once in your life?" his hands balled into fists as he spoke.
Then the kids came in. The stopped in their tracks when they saw their parents arguing. "Mom? Dad?" Jacob said.
"Stay out of this!" Bugs exclaimed.
"Why can't you have just told me what's wrong in the first place?"
"Mommy? Daddy?" Kristy said.
"Go downstairs kids!" Lola said.
"Why can't you just leave me alone?" Bugs shouted in her face.
"Mom! Dad!" Jacob exclaimed.
"I said STAY OUT OF THIS!" Bugs exclaimed.
"Don't yell at him! Whatever you're mad about take it out on me not them!"
"This isn't about them Lo, it's about us!"
"It's just that you come in here mad for god knows why, and take all you're bullshit out on me like I did…" Suddenly Bugs smacked her across her face and the unexpected impact threw her into the wall. A sharp pain went through her as she clutched her face in her hands with the tears welling up in her eyes. She slowly turned to face him then backed away half expecting him to hit her again. She felt as though she were looking at a stranger, Bugs had never ever hit her before! The tears spilled down her cheeks blurring her vision. "How could you?" she said quietly.
Bugs was in disbelief at what he just did. Lola leaned up against the wall red faced with tears in her eyes. Jacob and Kristy cringed away from him as if they expected to be next. He reached his hand out and came towards Lola to comfort her. "Lo…"
She pushed him away aggressively. "GET THE HELL AWAY FORM ME!" she screamed. She buried her face in her hands and sobbed.
The kids came over to her. "Are you okay mommy?" Jacob asked.
"No…" Lola sobbed. "I thought you loved me," she said hardly above a whisper.
Bugs heard it though. He felt so ashamed of himself. How could he have let this happen? He'd hurt his wife and now his kids were terrified of him. He did the only thing he could do at the moment. He left the room before he could cause any more grief and soon he was out the front door.
Lola looked at Jake and Kristy who gave her worried looks. "You two go finish your dinner, I'll be down soon."
"Please," she managed to choke out between her uncontrollable tears. "I'll be down soon."
They went downstairs reluctantly. Lola threw herself onto the bed and cried harder than ever. She felt as though she didn't know him anymore. She felt like this wasn't the Bugs Bunny she'd fallen in love with. The Bugs Bunny she'd fallen in love with didn't yell at her or curse at her or hit her; he was compassionate and sweet and he cared about her. Now she was scared, not of him but for him. It seemed as though the love they had was slowly slipping away and before she knew it her worst fear would be realized: he'd leave her.
Bugs was in his car driving away. He didn't know where he was going, he just knew he was getting out of there. He drove off into some woods but didn't stop there. He probably ran over a squirrel but at that moment he really didn't care. Road rage wasn't the answer to most problems but it sure felt good. Finally he came to the top of a cliff. He got out of the car and sat near the edge which over looked a meadow where he and Lola had spent so many afternoons just goofing off.
"What is wrong with you?" he said to himself. "How could I…have been such a…how could I do that to her? Who gives a crap about the frickin car…Why was I so mean to her…what the hell did she do to you? Who cares what happened yesterday or…ugh!"
The look on Lola's face replayed over and over again in his head. She had been so compassionate despite their argument that morning, why couldn't he have seen that? And when he hit her…that image was terrible. Her tears were terrible. When she said "I thought you loved me" was the worst. He did love her, and because of what he'd done she didn't think it was true.
And the kids. How could he have done that in front of them? They probably thought he was some abusive…abomination! How could they ever trust him again?
All in all he felt absolutely ashamed of himself that he could let everything amount to this. His mind drifted of to about some eight years ago when Sherrice's ex-husband Mark had abused her and threatened to murder her and Bugs had gone after him. Or Jason abusing Lola and trying to kill her. Was this what he was turning into? Some crazy psychopath who abused his wife and kids? Would they ever trust him again? Or worse yet, would Lola stay with him after what he'd done?
After a few more hours of cursing himself out, it started to get cold and dark, and when he was sure the kids would be in bed, he drove back home.
Later that night when Bugs came home Lola completely ignored the fact that he was there. She sat at her vanity in their bedroom wearing her pajamas tying her ears back into their usual ponytail. He came into the room and she pretended to keep her gaze fixated on her angry and hurt reflection in the mirror.
"Hi," he said.
She ignored him.
"I'm sorry I came back so late," he said trying to make small talk.
Lola rolled her eyes. "If you were coming back at all," she mumbled so Bugs couldn't hear.
"You're sorry? You've been saying you're sorry every other day," she said harshly as she stood up. "But do you really mean it?" She pushed past him, left the room and didn't come back for the rest of the night.
The next day after school let out all the teachers except Bugs and Lola were gathered around the door. What had been going on between Bugs and Lola hadn't gone unnoticed by their friends. They decided they're argument had gone too far and as much as they despised those rabbits they were not about to let them ruin their marriage over something stupid. Good friends huh?
"Have either of you tried talking to Lola?" Sylvester asked Penelope and Melissa.
"We did, she won't say a word," Penelope replied.
"We all tried talking to Bugs," Pepe Le Pew said gesturing to himself, Daffy, Wile E, and Speedy.
"That rabbit is muy testarudo. He's thick in the cabeza," Speedy said.
"Hey there's Lola!" Melissa said pointing.
Lola was walking down the hallway with her John Cena bag and her head down. She didn't even look at them as she walked past. "Hi you guys."
"Lola, what's going on between you and Bugs?" Elmer Fudd asked.
"Please talk to us," Penelope said.
Of course Lola wasn't about to tell them anything even though they were her friends. She absentmindedly put her hand to her face where Bugs had smacked her. "I don't wanna talk about it," she said quietly still not looking up. She pushed past them. "I have to go pick up my kids."
"Something is definitely going on," Melissa said.
"Why do we care about thosthe two? Who caresth if those idiots get divorced, it's not our problem. It's none of our businessth!" Daffy said.
"It is our business! There little fight has gone on long enough and it's time it ends. What if it gets violent?" Melissa said.
They all thought about that for a moment. Bugs and Lola violent with each other? "Nah!" they said simultaneously.
A few minutes later Bugs came down the hallway. He had a look on his face like he was deep in thought. When he saw them crowded around the door he scowled.
"Bugs, we want to talk to you," Sylvester said.
"Is that why you're standing around the door? I thought you were about to start an angry mob and just waiting for your pitchforks and torches to arrive," Bugs said sarcastically.
"That's not funny, this is serious!" Melissa said.
"Wow, the Looney Tunes being serious, what is this world coming to?"
"What's going on between you and Lola?" Wile E exclaimed getting frustrated with his sarcasm.
Bugs pretended to think. "What's the phrase I'm looking for? It's right on the tip of my tongue…oh yeah! Mind your own business!" he started to walk past them towards the entrance.
Granny came down the hallway. Sylvester and Wile E pulled her towards them before she could say anything. "Bugs is depressed," Sylvester said.
"You're the only one he'll talk to," Pepe Le Pew said.
"Talk to him now!" Melissa said.
"Granny can I ask you something?" Daffy asked.
"Anything Daffy," Granny said.
"When the hell are you gonna retire?"
Granny chuckled. "In your dreams. And I'll talk to him." She headed out the door.
Granny caught up with Bugs who was halfway across the parking lot. "Bugs can I speak to you?"
"Don't tell me, the guys put you up to this."
"Well they did as a matter of fact but I really want to know, what's wrong? Is it Lola?"
There was such sincerity and care in her voice Bugs couldn't say no. He leaned up against his Viper and sighed. "Yeah it is Lola. We've been fighting a lot lately and honestly I think it's going too far."
"Did you apologize to her?"
"Every time I try we just start arguing about something else. We can hardly talk to each other without yelling."
"But you've gotten into fights before. What makes this any different?"
"Promise you won't think of me differently if I tell you?"
"You have my word."
"I hit her in the face yesterday."
"I don't know…I guess I just let my temper get the better of me…I mean I was having this god awful day…I know that's no reason to take it out on her but…Shit, I'm such an idiot! You should've seen her face Granny, it was like she'd shattered into a million pieces…I still feel terrible about it. She hasn't frickin spoken to me since last night when she told me to 'get out of her face'. She wouldn't even sleep with me last night! What if she divorces me Granny? Then what will I do? I can't live without her!"
"Bugs, think about it. Do you really think Lola will divorce you?"
"I wouldn't put it past her," Bugs said miserably. "I've been such a jerk it wouldn't surprise me if she did."
"Well, the best I can tell you is to try to make it up to her. Believe me, things get better in time. And for god's sake's control your temper!"
"You're right Granny. I'll apologize to her as soon as I get home," Bugs said confidently.
"That's the spirit."
Bugs got into his car and headed home to apologize to his wife.
Lola was on her way to the kids' elementary school to pick them up. She checked her gas tank which had been running on E all day. It'd be pure luck if she made it to the school. She made a U turn to the gas station. After getting the gas she parked in front of the store next to it to get maybe some Skittles or something for Jake and Kristy.
As soon as she got out she was grabbed by the arms. "Hey!" She punched the short guy on her right but the bigger one on her left got a hold of her easily. She struggled and tried to shout but he put his hand over her mouth. She was dragged to a beat up silver station wagon.
"Take her away Mugsy."
When Bugs got home he found the house unusually quiet. No one came running to him as he came inside. "Jake?" he called. "Kristy? Lola?" No answers. "C'mon you guys, this isn't funny." He went into the living room. No one there. Kitchen. No. Library. No. Upstairs. No where to be seen.
He went to the kitchen and called Lola.
"You've reached Lola Bunny, I can't answer the phone right now, so please leave a message."
"Lo, it's Bugs. Where are you? The house was empty when I got home. Please call me back and let me know you're okay." He put the phone away.
He paced around the kitchen starting to get nervous. What if something happened to them? He tried to think of a good explanation. He couldn't think of any that didn't involve them all being hurt. Maybe they went to the store? Nah, Lola would've called him. Maybe it wasn't the kids, maybe it was just Lola.
With that he got back into his car and drove to the elementary school. He went into the office.
"Can I help you?" the elderly secretary asked.
"Are Jacob and Kristy Bunny still here?"
"Jacob and Kristy? Yes, yes, they're still here. Why are you so late picking them up?" she said accusingly.
"Actually my wife was supposed to pick them up but she never showed." The lady shook her head sadly. "What?"
She pulled a crystal ball out of her drawer. "I see your wife Lola. About an hour ago something terrible happened to her."
Bugs raised his eyebrows. He never did believe all that fortune telling stuff. "Um, thank you but I really should…"
"Wait! She was taken away, to an old monkey hut where she will be fried and tortured until they eat her then kill her."
"Eat her then kill her?"
"Yes, if you don't hurry and get to Siberia she'll be dead."
Bugs backed away. "Right. Siberia. Monkey hut. I'll be there." He left the room thinking that woman is totally nuts. He went to Jacob's classroom first and found them both in there.
"Daddy!" They ran over to him and hugged him.
"Why didn't mom pick us up?" Jacob asked.
Bugs shrugged. "I don't know." He turned to their teacher. "Sorry I'm so late, there was...complications."
"No problem at all. I don't' mind staying with these two, they're great kids," the teacher said.
"What do you say?" Bugs said to Jacob and Kristy.
"You're very welcome. I'll see you on Monday."
They said good-bye and went out to the car. Bugs was deep in thought about where Lola could be. Nothing came to him.
"Stop poking me!" Kristy exclaimed.
"I'm not poking you," Jacob said innocently.
"Stop poking me!"
"I'm not poking you!"
This went on for some time until Bugs couldn't take it anymore. "Both of you be quiet!"
"But he's poking me!"
"Would ya keep your hands to yourself and stop talking?" Bugs exclaimed. Both were silent. As he passed the gas station out of the corners of his eyes he could've sworn he saw Lola's Ferrari. He wasn't about to underestimate anything that might give him a clue as to where she was. He turned around and pulled into the parking lot. "You two stay here I'll be right back."
He got out and inspected the car. When he looked inside he saw Kristy's Chuck E Cheese doll. It definitely was Lola's car but where the heck was Lola? He went into the store and went up to the counter.
A tired and bored looking man who smelled like drugs looked at him.
"Have you seen a blonde rabbit around here about this tall has a John Cena purse?" Bugs asked trying not to sound too desperate.
The man racked his memory of the day. "Yeah I seen her. She had two men with her she did."
Bugs raised his eyebrows. "Two men?"
"Yeah. There was this short little man with a tall hat, couldn't get a good look at 'is face. And there was this tall large fella, didn't look too bright if ya know what I mean." He turned back to his newspaper.
Short man with a tall hat, tall guy that didn't look very smart. Suddenly it all fell together. His old foes Rocky and Mugsy kidnapped Lola!
Rocky and Mugsy pushed Lola into an old abandoned apartment which looked like it hadn't been used in years. They pushed her up the dirty stairs into a room, the whole time she struggled to break free and Rocky held a gun in case she actually did break free and try to run.
"Tie her up Mugsy," Rocky said in a sinister voice.
"Okay boss," Mugsy said. He pushed Lola into a chair and tied her up tightly.
"Ow! No so tight!" Lola exclaimed. It felt like the rope was cutting off her circulation.
"Sorry," Mugsy said loosening it up.
Rocky slapped him. "Don't loosen it up ya idiot!"
"Sorry," Mugsy tightened the rope again.
Lola struggled to break free but the rope was too tight, it was no use.
Rocky got in her face, his breath smelled like fresh cigarette smoke. "Heh, heh, now you've got no one to come save you huh?"
Lola glared at him. She was about to say Bugs would save her but her face fell. After what had happened yesterday, it was clear that Bugs didn't love her anymore. She honestly didn't expect him to come for her. "You're right. I don't."
Rocky raised his eyebrows. "Aren't you Bugs Bunny's wife?"
"Yes, but he's not coming so you might as well let me go."
"I'm not falling for that!"
"Yeah he's not falling for that!" Mugsy repeated.
Rocky punched him. "Shut up!"
"I'm serious! He's not coming! He…he doesn't love me anymore!" Her voice choked on that last part but she didn't let her pain show. "He's hit me! You might as well let me go and hold someone else hostage!" The more she said it she actually believed it. She knew she shouldn't believe that but when she thought of what he's done to her she didn't see any reason why he still loved her.
Rocky and Mugsy laughed. "Touching story young lady but if you really think we're that dumb you're mistaken." Rocky handed Mugsy the gun. "If she tries anything funny Mugsy, blow her brains out!" Rocky left the room to go set up a trap.
"Okay boss." Mugsy turned to Lola and held up the gun with an evil grin on his face. Lola just glared at him keeping her pride on her face.
Bugs had to rescue Lola and fast but first off he needed to put the kids…somewhere. Friday was Granny's bingo night so she was out. His next thought was Sylvester. They loved staying over there because Sylvia made some mad deviled eggs and they liked playing with Jr.
Bugs pulled into the driveway of Sylvester's brick mansion which was a few blocks away from his.
"Daddy, why are we over here?" Kristy asked.
"Because you're staying over Sylvester's for a while," Bugs said as they walked to the door. Bugs rang the doorbell and Sylvester answered it.
"Hey Bugs, Jacob, Kristy. Wassup?"
"Can they stay over here for a while?" Bugs asked.
"Sure why?" Bugs raised his eyebrows indicating that they needed to talk in private.
Suddenly Jr came downstairs. "Hey people! Jake, Kristy, long time no see dudes!"
"Jr, it's been a day since you've seen them," Sylvester said. Him and Bugs went into the dining room where they found Sylvia trying out different hairstyles in the mirror. "Um, Sylvia?"
Sylvia turned around and immediately let her long hair (which now had neon pink highlights) fall to her shoulders. "Yes?"
"Jake and Kristy need to stay over here for a while, Bugs says it's important."
"I think Lola's been kidnapped," Bugs said.
"I come home and she didn't pick the kids up from school, I find her car abandoned in the gas station, and some guy there says Rocky and Mugsy were there," he explained.
"What's been going on between you two anyway?" Sylvia asked.
"That doesn't matter…"
"C'mon Bugs, we're babysitting your kids we have a right to know," Sylvester said.
Bugs sighed exasperatedly. Will these people ever stop caring? "We've just been fighting a lot okay? I hit her yesterday and she's really mad at me. I need to find her and tell her that I still love her before she had the chance to get a divorce!"
Sylvia and Sylvester stared in disbelief. "You hit your wife?" Sylvester said.
"You think Lola of all people will divorce you?" Sylvia said.
Bugs rolled his eyes. They just didn't get it. "I have to go." He went to the door. Jacob tugged on his pants. "Dad, is mom okay?"
Bugs bent down and looked him in the eyes. "Mom is fine. I just have to go pick her up."
"Why can't we come?"
"Because I'll probably be back late. Don't you and your sister try to stay up late waiting for me okay?"
Bugs gave him a hug. "Bye Kristy!" He called.
"See ya kiddo," he said to Jacob. Then he set off to find Lola.
Lola had been sitting in that room tied up for almost an hour. Mugsy sat across from her in a chair holding up the gun so if she found out how to break free she couldn't. She decided to try Bugs' sweet talk, maybe that'll get him to untie her.
"Mugsy, why do you take it from that guy?" Lola said trying to sound like she cared.
"What d'you mean?"
"I mean he bosses you around, curses at you, and doesn't even give you a pay check for all your hard work. Why even bother?"
"Because he's my friend…"
"Friends tell you to shut up all the time? Friends force you to do their dirty laundry? Some friend Rocky is."
Mugsy thought about that. "Well…"
"You don't have to do this Mugsy. Let me go. Lower the gun." Mugsy gave her a suspicious look but slowly lowered the gun. "That's it. Now come over here and untie me." Mugsy stood up and walked over to her. Lola smiled. Bugs has taught you well Mrs. Bunny, she thought. She sighed at the thought of her husband. The first thing she was going to do when she got out of here was talk to him whether he still loved her or not.
"WHAT ARE YOU DOING?" Rocky exclaimed.
"So close," Lola mumbled.
Mugsy quickly stood up. "I was…uh…I was…"
"I thought I told you to keep her tied up and to shoot her if she tried anything funny!" Rocky exclaimed.
"She told me you're not my real friend. That I shouldn't take all this from you and clean your laundry anymore," Mugsy explained.
Rocky's face turned positively evil. "And you're gonna believe her? After all we've been through? You're gonna leave me to go through with this plan ALONE?"
"I'm sorry Rocky, I won't do it again."
"Yeah you'd better not." He walked towards Lola. "And you'd better not try anymore funny stuff or else!" He expected Lola to break down in fear but instead she just glared and said, "Aw, go suck and egg."
Rocky's eyes widened in surprise. "I'm serious lady!" He turned to Mugsy. "Keep her quiet." He stormed out of the room to wait for Bugs.
"So…read any good books lately?" Lola asked in attempt to distract him again.
Mugsy slapped her with his large hands. "Shut up you stupid girl."
Lola's face turned viscious. "I swear I outta…" He slapped her again. And again for the fun of it. "What was that for?" He slapped her again. Her face burned from being hit so much but she didn't let a sound escape from her throat. Mugsy slapped her again.
The door opened. "Lo!"
Lola turned around and her eyes got wide. "Bugs?"
Mugsy held the gun up to Bugs. "Drop it Mugsy!" Mugsy dropped the gun.
Bugs ran over to Lola and started to untie her. "You came?" she said still in disbelief.
"Of course I came, I wasn't just gonna let them hurt you." He undid the last rope and pulled her out of the chair. He lifter her face to look at him and he kissed her and she put her arms around him in relief.
Rocky came through the other door not at all pleased with what he saw. "HEY!"
Bugs and Lola broke their kiss and gave him an annoyed look. "What?"
"How the hell did you get in here?"
"Oh I took the back door because there was a giant cage hanging over the other one," Bugs said.
Rocky's face turned into a satisfied smirk. "Well I hope you two are enjoying your little reunion because this is the last time you'll ever see each other."
"Yeah what he said," Mugsy said.
Rocky punched him. "Shut up!"
"What'd I do boss?"
"I said SHUT UP!"
Bugs stepped in front of Lola. "If you wanna hurt her Rocky you'll have to go through me!"
"But you're the whole reason we're all here today Bugs."
"What are you talking about Doc?" Bugs said suspiciously.
"Geez, I honestly thought you were smarter than this. Don't you see? This was all a set up. We knew you'd come looking for her, even though she tried to convince us you didn't love her anymore. All the times you've humiliated us and got us sent to jail, we're just returning the favor rabbit. We're gonna kill your wife, let you watch her die, then we're gonna kill you!"
"Yeah we're gonna kill you," Mugsy said.
Rocky punched him. "SHUT UP AND GRAB THE GIRL!"
Before Bugs could react Mugsy grabbed Lola and Rocky cuffed Bugs so he couldn't save her. Mugsy held Lola's arms behind her back and held the gun to her head. Bugs struggled but he couldn't break free. "Let her go! She hasn't done anything!"
"Shut up rabbit." Rocky kicked him in the leg making him crumble in pain. Lola looked dead at Bugs with wide fearful eyes. "Any last words?" Rocky said.
"Bugs…I love you," Lola said.
Bugs honestly thought this was the end. He'd always thought he'd had the upper hand on these guys but not this time. The gun was to her head and he couldn't save her. The last memory he'd have was the scared look on her face in cold sweat. There were so many things he hadn't gotten to say or do. He dropped his head in defeat. He looked her in the eyes. "I love you too, and I'm sorry."
"Fire away Mugsy!"
Lola grimaced about to face death.
Mugsy prepared to pull the trigger.
Bugs' eyes widened in fear. "NO!"
Lola opened her eyes. She wasn't dead. What the heck?
Click! Click! Click!
"Hey boss, no more bullets," Mugsy said.
"No more bullets? NO MORE BULLETS? WHAT DO YOU MEAN NO MORE BULLETS? YOU FORGOT TO LOAD THE FRICKIN GUN?"
Mugsy pushed Lola onto the floor and he and rocky got into a loud argument completely forgetting the rabbits.
Lola crawled over to Bugs who'd also been pushed onto the floor and hugged him.
"Are you okay?" he asked as she embraced him (his hands were still cuffed behind his back).
"I'm fine. I swear that empty gun was some luck. Good thing Mugsy's an idiot." She took a bobby pin out of her hair and unlocked the cuffs then they stood up. "A woman always wears a bobby pin in her hair for situations like this."
Rocky and Mugsy saw them and apparently forgot their argument about the gun. They headed towards them and Bugs and Lola backed up. "When I say now, you take Mugsy and I'll take Rocky," Bugs whispered.
Lola nodded. "Got it."
Lola charged at Mugsy jumped into the air and kicked him.
Mugsy staggered back but came out of it and put up his fists. "Show me what you've got doll!"
Lola's eyes flamed up fiercely. She punched him in the face before he could react. She punched him with every word. "Don't. Ever. Call. Me." She picked up a chair and hit him in the head with it, wood flying everywhere. "Doll!" She gave Mugsy a few more blows easily (as you can see Mugsy can't fight). Then she kicked him in the gut sending him slamming him into the wall with Tweety Birds floating around his head.
Meanwhile, Bugs and Rocky were circling each other.
"Back down any moment rabbit," Rocky said in that sinister voice of his.
"In your dreams Doc," Bugs said, standing his ground.
Rocky picked up a loose metal pole on the floor like a sword and Bugs picked one up himself. "You're sick Rocky," Bugs said.
"How do you think I got the reputation as the baddest criminal out there?" Rocky said proudly.
"Aw, put that ego away."
"I mean all the crimes I've commited, hardly with the help of Mugsy…"
"The baddest criminal around shouldn't need any help," Bugs said with a smirk.
"Are you saying I'm weak?" Rocky said angrily.
"You're asking for it rabbit!"
"Is that the police?"
Rocky turned around with fear in his eyes. "Where?" he said in a panicking voice.
Bugs took the opportunity while he was distracted to swing at him hitting him in the back. He swung again but Rocky blocked it then swung back which Bugs blocked. Bugs hit him in the face making him bleed. Rocky tried to hit Bugs but he blocked it yet again. Just as Bugs was about to hit him Rocky knocked the pole out of his hands. "Crap," Bugs mumbled.
Mugsy checked the gun and found one stubborn bullet in it. "Hey boss, whatdya know one bullet left."
Rocky was furious. He ignored Bugs and came over to Mugsy absolutely enraged. "One. Bullet. Left. You mean to tell me there was one bullet left?" He snatched the gun. "Mugsy I outta…!" He accidentally pulled the trigger.
I'm so obsessed with violence and drama for some reason. Who was it who got shot? Bugs or Lola? Will they die? What will happen after they die?
