Disclaimer: I do not own Sorcerer's Apprentice, only this story and my OC.
Welcome to 'A Rerun II: Fast Forward.' Yeap I have decided to make a sequel, I was thinking of one-shots but I deleted it since I was no good with them, so here I am back with 'A Rerun' hope you will enjoy it, if you want to suggest ideas go ahead.
A bitter wind blew towards him making him shiver in coldness and somehow in fear. The grey sky seemed to dull the place even more than it already was, he frowned at his surroundings as he stood in a field filled with crops. He slowly walked around and noticed that some crops were cut down while some still stood tall, it somehow reminded him of all those alien movies that he watched, as he got to the centre he stopped and his mind seemed to click. It was the Morganean Circle.
It was then that he noticed a large black book somewhat similar to his Encantus, walking towards it he picked it up before opening it and flipped through the pages with mild-interest, he jumped and dropped the book as a knife was chucked in front of him. He slowly lifted his gaze up at the person who had dared to chuck it at him, he felt fear crawling up his back as the cloaked person stared at him, Dave's eyes trailed down towards one of his hands and noticed the sharp razor liked claw, instantly he ran.
The field seemed to be like an endless maze, every turn would either lead to another path or a dead end, Dave skidded to a stop as he stared down at the black hole down below how it got there he had no idea, he was now standing on a cliff and he knew that the person with the claw liked hands was behind him, he turned around and was ready to send a plasma bolt but didn't had time since he fell in, he quickly grasped the edge of the cliff and looked up at the man, he seemed to be chanting something before reaching out and grabbed his arm making him scream in pain…
He shot up from his bed and looked around, everything seemed normal unlike his so called dream. It seemed to plague his mind he winced as he looked at his arm which held a large cut. Sighing he stood up and walked towards his bathroom and grabbed a towel before dabbing in onto his wound. These nightmares or terrors had started to appear two months ago after he had defeated Morgana, he did not voice it out to Balthazar or Mikayla knowing they would get protective of him.
He walked towards his wardrobe and pulled out black cargo pants along with a green hoody. He looked at his mirror before running his hands through his hair and winked at himself, with that he walked out his room and gazed at the long hallway. He hummed a small tune as he walked pass the other doors that were empty, he did not know why Balthazar insisted them moving into a larger place than his so called 'apartment'. He remembered how Mikayla muttered something about it looking like the same house-mansion from National Treasures.
After she had returned Dave and Balthazar insisted that she move in with them since they had plenty of rooms (too much if you asked him). At first she declined but after a few words she had later agreed to live with them for the time being, but they still insisted that it would be permanent.
He still continued his training with Balthazar along with Mikayla. She stated that she needed training aswell but hers was limited and would only train with him when they were at the same topic or subject, like last week he was practising how to freeze time and was having a hard time so did Mikayla but they knew they would be able to get it in the end.
During her stay he had learnt a lot about her. She loves chocolate with any kinds of fruits especially bananas and strawberries. When she bit her lip it meant she was nervous. She did not care about the age gap between her and Balthazar even though he did at times. She had a quick wit that was soon rubbing on him-
"Dave what are doing up at this hour?"
He looked up and saw Mikayla standing below the staircase staring up at him with her arms crossed, he raised an eyebrow at her attire. She wore a yellow summer dress that ended to her knee, there was white flower prints at the bottom she also wore the necklace that Balthazar had given her. He turned to look at the clock that was behind him. 6:00AM. He turned to look at her once again.
"What about you? And wearing that dress at this time too." Dave pointed out trying to change the subject.
"I like to take morning walks." Mikayla shrugged, before narrowing her eyes "And don't go changing the subject."
"I like taking morning walks too." Dave replied, he knew he could never lie but he hoped Mikayla would drop it. She stared at him before nodding her head, she then walked towards the kitchen, Dave watched as she disappeared through the arch way, sighing he walked down the stairs and followed Mikayla, who had her back to him making coffee.
"You know if I was Balthazar I would have told you were a bad liar and try to get it out of you." Mikayla said turning around handing him a hot chocolate which he took gladly, while she took a sip on her coffee.
"Yeah but you wouldn't, you're not like that." Dave shrugged simply making Mikayla smile.
"You know me too well."
"So" Mikayla said looking up at Dave "How are you and Beck's? I noticed you two are not talking too much, what's the matter?"
Dave let out a sigh before looking at Mikayla. To be honest he didn't know aswell, I mean he and Becky had been okay but ever since the nightmares came he started to take some of them out on her, he did not miss the hurt look she showed, he would apologize and she forgave him way to easily making him feel more guilty for his rudeness.
"Just stressed out." Dave said simply, he heard Mikayla sigh knowing she had let go of the topic. Balthazar on the other hand won't be that easy.
"You two are up early?"
They both turned to look at the older man who leaned on the doorway with his arms folded. He looked a mess in the morning, his eyes sparkled with curiosity and happiness but his clothes on the other hand were wrinkled from sleep. He still couldn't believe his strict master looked normal.
"Yeah we decided to have an early start." Mikayla smiled before handing Balthazar a cup of coffee which he took gladly and sat across Dave on the island. Dave sent a smile which he returned back.
"Dave, meet me in the lab straight after school we will continue with your History." Balthazar stated simply, and grinned as Dave let out a groan.
"Can't Mikayla come with me? I mean she still hasn't learnt her previous life yet" Dave tried to reason.
It was true. Mikayla confessed that she still hadn't had her full memory back yet. Sometimes she would get fragments of those memories in her dreams or sometimes she just spaced out, he wished he could do that it would be awesome-
"True but hers is not as important as yours. No offence Mikayla." Balthazar turned to look at his partner.
"Don't I feel loved?" Mikayla said sarcastically, but later smiled forgiving Balthazar.
"Alright" Dave looked at the clock and placed his cup on the sink before giving them a smile "I got to run, I promised Becky I'll pick her up."
"Not in my car-" Balthazar turned to look at his apprentice who grinned. Mikayla rolled her eyes before throwing the keys at Dave who caught it awkwardly but caught it anyway.
"Thanks Mikayla, you're the best!" He ran up to her and gave her a quick hug before running out the door.
She smiled as she saw Dave ran out the house and into her car. She turned to Balthazar who stood in front of her with a grin and a mischievous look on his face, rolling her eyes she turned and placed her cup on the sink and decided to wash it. She tried to ignore his arms that wrapped itself around her waist and his lips on her bare shoulder. Once she was done with the dishes she turned to look at him with a raised eyebrow as he stared back with innocent in his eyes.
"You know we have the house to ourselves until this afternoon right…" Balthazar whispered making her raise an eyebrow, grinning she leaned a little closer as she stared up at him while he stared at her lips.
"I like the way you think…" She saw him grin and he leaned in, quickly she slid away from his arms and gave him a side ways glanced "But not today I have some shopping to do"
She laughed as she saw Balthazar turn to her, she yelped before running up the stairs running away from him, Mikayla's laughter was mixed with his. She skidded to the right and quickly locked the door; she could hear his footsteps approaching her way, biting her lip she waved her hand causing time to stop.
She had learnt that trick when she read one of the letters, taking a deep breath she opened the door and saw Balthazar frozen; she giggled before shutting the door behind her and made her way out of the manor, once she was out she waved her hands again making everything move once again. She let out another giggle before hopping into her own car, she started the engine before driving out of the place, she heard her phone ring, and without looking at the caller ID she answered it.
"That was a mean trick." Mikayla rolled her eyes knowing he was probably pouting.
"So?" Mikayla grinned before parking the car. She hopped out and walked around the city centre looking at the shops.
"Like I said it was a mean trick, I swear you and Dave just drive me crazy sometimes."
"You know you love it." Mikayla stopped as she saw Veronica sitting on a bench in a white tank top with a jean jacket along with a knee length skirt; she was staring at a young couple who sat a few benches away. Mikayla sighed.
"I'll call you later." With that she hanged up and approached Veronica.
After she had come back Dave filled in what had happened between the two. Veronica was staying with Becky for the time being until she was able to get used to the time period, her and Balthazar rarely spoke since it was awkward for Veronica she didn't blame Veronica, after all she just found out the Balthazar no longer has feelings for her and yet she still does. She sat onto the bench making Veronica look at her in shock before offering a smile Mikayla returned it.
"How are you fitting in?" Mikayla asked politely.
"I'm fine thank you; I am still having trouble with the way they converse but I am doing well." She replied before standing up and walked away, sighing she also stood up and followed her walking beside Veronica.
"We need to talk about it."
"I have already talked about it with Dave and Balthazar and I am sure they have informed you about it." Veronica replied simply, but Mikayla could feel her hurt aswell, she was saddened that she was a part of it.
"But I want to hear it from you, think about it as a girl to girl thing." Mikayla tried again, but Veronica simply ignored it.
Mikayla let out a sigh before opening her bag and pulled out a pen and paper before writing down her number. She looked up and saw Veronica looking at her confused, she handed it to her which she took in reluctantly.
"It's my number, if you are ready to talk ask Becky for a phone and call me." Veronica looked at her before nodding and started to walk away, Mikayla watched her before walking into a shop. She hoped they could get along but it would probably seem awkward and Veronica seemed nice.
"That's her huh? She has a pretty face." The person stated as they stared at the girl.
"Don't get distracted, we are here for the Prime Merlinean."
"You sure she could lead us to him?" Turning to his partner who grinned.
"I am certain."
