Hello…I'm working on this at the moment…As I am writing this, I have not even posted the chapter that belongs before this one, which should have been posted when it needed to be posted, which in turn did not get posted because I am not able to post it at the place I am at because it does not allow posting within the posting area…and this particular posting area might let me post it, when in reality it really won't let me post it or post anything related to something that needs to be posted. So all in all, I am not able to post anything where I'm at right now ^_^
Haha, I felt like writing something confusing…Yay!
Anyways, hope you guys enjoy this chapter, and don't forget to give me some feedback! Love you all!
Oh, and don't think badly of me for this chapter. There is going to be a new character in this one. It will be the only chapter she is seen in, though. Some of you will recognize her from my story, "KFP Interviews". Maybe even some of you will just realize who she is. I just couldn't think of anything for this chapter so decided to do this.
Pretty Sure it's a Miracle
Chapter 5: Insane
It was now the third day of being in the same room with Tigress.
And guess what?
No one's throats were missing yet.
But half my stomach was.
Well, not literally. It just felt like it. I was still as fat and round as ever. Tigress wasn't looking so good, though. She had lost her glow that she usually had in only three days. Her eyes remained alive, thankfully. She usually didn't want to get out of bed in the morning. I couldn't blame her for that, though. I didn't really want to, either. This flu was really wiping us out.
"Po? Tigress?" Viper whispered, cracking open my door slightly, being sure not to stick her face in through it, "I brought your soup…"
"Thanks, Viper," I said, watching as she slid the bowls in carefully.
"You're welcome," she replied. She shut the door and slithered back the way she came. I went over and grabbed the bowls. Sitting back down on the futons, I handed Tigress her bowl and set mine down in front of me.
"It's only been three days and I'm already sick of not being able to go anywhere," Tigress grumbled.
"Well, I'll tell you what," I announced, "After we're all better and everything, why don't I take you out to dinner or something? We can go wherever you like."
She smiled and picked up her bowl, bringing it closer to her mouth, "I'd like that."
I stared at her for a moment, watching as she tiredly ate her soup. It was normal chicken noodle soup, (not that mine wasn't) and I kind of wanted to know who was making it because I knew for a fact that not a lot of the people who work here can cook so well.
Being early afternoon, we were tired, but not tired enough to go to sleep. We yawned constantly, and our headaches pounded desperately in our heads, as if it were trying to escape. Truth be told, I wished it would escape and leave us.
"Po, Tigress," a gruff voice said. The door did not open, but we could still hear it. I already knew who it was by the voice and the outline of their body outside of the door. It was Master Shifu. I wasn't sure why he was here.
"Yeah, Master?" I answered.
"I'm sorry that I didn't ask your permission first, but you have a visitor. A message was sent to me from a girl requesting permission to visit you. She seemed to have good intentions. Her mother was a skilled medical worker and taught her everything she knows, so there is a possibility she will be able to help you. Would you mind if I let her in? She has already arrived."
"Um, sure," I shrugged.
"Now, wait," Tigress interjected, "This girl…how old is she?"
"She's about 15 years old," Shifu answered.
"Why?" I asked Tigress.
"I was just wondering if this girl was old enough to take care of us," she shrugged, "But…Fifteen years old? Are you sure that's safe, Master?"
"I'm positive. She is very talented when it comes to these kinds of things. Don't ask me how I know that," he said, "I will go and get her."
"I still don't know if having a fifteen year old girl taking care of us is a very good idea," Tigress said once Shifu was out of earshot.
"Ah, I'm sure we'll be fine. What could go wrong?" I rolled my eyes.
Suddenly, the door slipped open just enough for someone to step in.
"Tigress- ah, Master Tigress? Master Po?" the person said, closing the door behind them.
It was so weird, like seeing a black and white version on Tigress. I creased my eyebrows. I had never seen a white tiger until now.
"Um, hi!" I said with a grin, "I'm Po, and this is Tigress…"
"Oh, I know who you are!" She squealed, "You guys are famous everywhere! I'm from America, and you guys are even known about all over there! Everybody knows the story about you and the Furious Five, Po! I can't believe I'm actually talking to the Dragon Warrior and Master Tigress! This is insane! Master Tigress, may I say what an honor it is to meet you," she bowed to her, "You're my favorite of the Furious Five! And Master Po, it's a huge honor to meet you!" she bowed to me, too, "My name is Mo. I traveled to China with my grandma, so now I live here."
"It's awesome to meet you too, Mo," I bowed in return. Tigress did the same, "So, do you wanna, like, get started on us, or what?"
"Oh, yes, of course!" she stuttered, setting the bag she was carrying down on the ground. I sat back down on the futon next to Tigress, brushing my thumb over her paw. She sighed, and whether it was out of irritation or content, I wasn't sure.
"Now, what do you guys ha-," she started, turning around to face us. But she stopped dead when she saw my paw on Tigress's. I had a moment of panic, thinking she was going to get grossed out considering we're two different species. But what happened was far from that.
"No. Freaking. Way," She whispered. She looked up at our faces, then back down at our paws. She repeated this about five times, and then lost it, "OH MY GODS! ARE YOU SERIOUS? You…you guys are together? This is amazing! I never thought that would happen! I thought that Tigress would be too stubborn to admit it or Po would be too scared to tell her!" she continued as if she was talking to herself.
"I think I like this kid," I whispered to Tigress. She rolled her eyes as she continued to watch Mo freak out over the fact that Tigress and I had gotten together.
"Uh…uhm…I- I can't believe this! Forgive me, but I and a few of my other friends have been waiting ever since we heard about you for you two to get together! We love you guys as a couple," she beamed, "But…I'm getting way too off track. I'm supposed to be helping you guys with your whole 'stomach flu' issue."
"Yes, could you please move onto that?" Tigress mumbled. I elbowed her.
"Okay," Mo said, "I have this weird way of knowing what's wrong with you and how to fix it quickly. If I do this right, then you should be back to normal by tomorrow."
"And if you don't do it right?" Tigress asked, looking a bit concerned.
"Um…I'll just make sure I do it right, okay?" she shrugged. Tigress and I shared a worried look, wondering if we would make it out of this with all of our dignity…
"Okay, you should be good!" Mo exclaimed, putting her stuff back in her medical bag, "I gotta go now, but can I…um…I feel kinda awkward asking this…"
"Why? Just ask. I'm sure we can do whatever you want. I mean, you just kinda cured us of the stomach flu," I pointed out.
"True, but still…" she trailed off.
"C'mon! Just ask!" I urged, wondering what it was that she wanted.
"Okay…I was wondering…You guys are so famous, and it's been my dream to meet you, and you know, Po got his dream of becoming a Kung Fu master, so anything's possible…So, could I have…um…a…hug?" she closed her eyes.
I was actually kind of shocked that she was so weird about asking this. I mean, sure, people don't ask me if they can have a hug, I usually just go up and hug them, "Uh, sure! Kid, you don't have to be so self-conscious about asking that. It's no big deal!"
She opened her eyes, "Really? Are you serious? Thank you!" She ran up to me and put her arms as far round me as she could. I hugged back lightly. She pulled away, smiling like she had just conquered the world, "My friends are so not gonna believe me when I tell them about this!"
And the next thing I knew, she did one of the stupidest things I have ever seen someone do before.
She hugged Tigress.
Tigress stood there, shocked, like she had when I hugged her after defeating the Peacock. Mo pulled away quickly, grabbing her bag and waving to us on her way out. We waved back, laughing a little.
"It's nice to know that we have such…eccentric friends," Tigress chuckled.
"More like insane," I corrected, "I can't believe she hugged you! And you were okay with that?"
"I was…surprised, to say the least," she shrugged, "It was too late to hug back, though. She had already pulled away."
"Well...would you move away if I hugged you?" I asked sarcastically.
"Hmm…Let me think about that…" she purred, coming closer to me. She slid her hands behind my neck, closing the space between our bodies, "Would you move away if I kissed you right now?"
"I'd have to put some time into that tho-," I started, but I never got to finish that sentence. Tigress leaned up, silencing me with her lips. I wrapped my arms slowly around her waist, bringing her closer, (if that was even possible) and-
"Po, Tigress? Did that girl leave already? Or is she st-"
Shoot, I thought, pulling away from Tigress. Shifu stood in the doorway, with the door half open. His eye was twitching, his right ear was folded down, and his mouth was open in mid-sentence. "Uhh…Hi, Master," I stuttered, "I…Oh, dear."
"Master, forgive us," Tigress bowed.
Master Shifu shook his head, recovering from his shocked state of mind, "No, no. I shouldn't have barged in like that. I should have knocked first. But I don't believe that I will ever be able to rid myself of that image. Carry on," he waved his hand, walking out of my room and sliding the door shut.
"That was awkward…" I whispered.
"Just a bit."
Okay…so far on this vacation…I have gotten three chapters of two different stories done in only 2 days. I got two done for this story, and one done for my interview story…I think I'm gonna go to sleep now because soul-searching-Raven (she came with me and my other friend on the trip) is going to sleep too…and then dinner…yummy…
Hope you enjoyed it :) Review!
Oh, forget it. Just review. ;)
