What If…

I do not own Animorphs. If I did, Rachel would not be dead, and there would be a propper ending to the series.

AN: This is a plot bunny that popped up while I was on cinnamonbunzuh . com. Please enjoy!

Jake POV

After we saved the world from the Yeerks, I decided to take a year or two off. I was offered several jobs, including a teaching post. I did not accept it at the time. Because I had no job, I had a lot of time to think things over. Marco and I had drifted apart after Rachel's death. He had tried to get me to get together with him and Ax, and he had even convinced Tobias and Cassie to meet up with us. I didn't show. I just couldn't face them, Cassie. I began writing down my thoughts in a journal. As I was thinking about the time around when we first met Erik, I began thinking. What if Erik had kept the crystal? Would Rachel still be alive? Would Tom? Would I have been able to have a normal life? I slumped, head in my hands, and started to cry. I rarely cried. I knew this was hopless, but I wish I knew.

YOU SAY YOU WISH TO KNOW WHAT WOULD HAVE HAPPENED.

That voice! I regonized that voice!I sat bolt upright. " Elimist? Is that you?"

YES. SADLY, I CANNOT SHOW YOU. BUT, I CAN TAKE YOU BACK IN TIME TO THE EVENTS THAT HAPPENED ON THAT FATEFULL DAY, AND LET YOU STAY THERE. YOU CANNOT COME BACK, AND I WILL NOT BE ABLE TO COMMUNICATE YOU IF YOU CHOOSE TO GO. YOU WILL REMEMBER EVERYTHING THAT HAPPENED IN THIS TIME, BUT NO ONE ELSE WILL. DO YOU UNDERSTAND, JAKE?

I nodded.

GOOD. The elimist replied. NOW, WILL YOU ACCEPT MY OFFER? I MUST KNOW IN FIVE MINUTES. IF YOU CHOOSE NOT TO GO, I WILL ERASE YOUR MEMORIE OF THIS ENCOUNTER. IF YOU CHOOSE TO GO, HOWEVER, I WILL IMMEDIATELY TRANSPORT YOU TO THE TIME DIRECTLY AFTER THE BATTLE WITH ERIK. DO YOU CHOOSE TO ACCEPT OR NOT?
