Ok, I'm gonna do Chapter 5, then I'm gonna stop for tonight. I have school tomorrow. Senior year. I really hate my school. I keep having flashbacks of when my first ex dumped me...idk why. And when my second ex threatened me with "When I see you again, you'll regret it." Why did I tell you that? Well, at least I didn't tell you about the nightmare that I keep having about my second ex raping me and me becoming pregnant and my first ex being there for me when i am in labor. Dang it! Oh, well. At least I got it out. Chapter 5!

Chapter 5: Starting the List

Margo, Penny, and Gru walked to the living room.

"All right, Penny. We are going to have a family meeting downstairs. Sit there for a minute." Gru said, gesturing to the couch. Gru called Dr. Nefario.

"Dr. Nefario. Assemble the minions, Edith and Agnes. Family meeting!" Margo and Penny followed their father to the portal to the lab.

"Da, da..." A minion began while nailing a bolt.

"Minions, assemble." Gru said while still in the portal.

"Okay, okay." The minion ran away then came back to finish his job.

"Throo!" The minion attempted to nail the bolt, but, once again, hitting the other minion in the head. That same minion screamed in pain. The minions gathered in the same auditorium where Gru had once told them about his plan to steal the moon. But there was only quietness and stillness this time.

"All right, the last time we were here was for the girl's dance recital. Now, we gather here for a different, more serious reason. A life-changing reason. Margo?" Gru said. Margo stepped up.

"As you all know, I have leukemia. The doctor told me that I have only three months to live. So, dad and I made a list. A list of things I want to do before I die. 1) I want to go to Paris and see the Eiffel Tower. 2) I want to see the Northern Lights. 3) I want to visit my parents' graves. 4) I want to see the stars. 5) I want to see Italy in a gondola. 6) I want to make sure my sisters are happy when I leave. So, on the way home, dad and I adopted Penny, a girl me and my sisters once knew at Miss Hattie's." Margo said, looking down at her newly-adopted sister.

"And so, within these last three months," Gru said, his voice shaking, "we will complete this last five things. First, we will go to Paris and see the Eiffel Tower."

And so, Dr. Nefario, Gru, Margo, Penny, Edith, Agnes, and nine of the minions packed their bags and left for France.

A/N: Okay, the next three chapters will be very short but the one after the next three will be long. Read and Review!
