A/N: I'm back with the next chapter! Some Apollo and Pearl action coming! Well I'm not going to waste anymore of your time making you read this author's note. Onto the story!

Disclaimer: I only own the plot. Yeah that's right. I'm done screaming. I'm a professional.

Apollo walks down the hall of the hotel where he comes to a room labeled: Janitor. He walks in.

Apollo: Hmmmmm, that's odd. I didn't know they held throat healing sessions in a janitor's closet. Well, I guess I can't question a birthday coupon! Hello?

Suddenly the lights are shut off and Apollo is blindfolded. The lights turn back on and someone yells…

Pearl: SURPRISE! HAPPY BIRTHDAY POLLY!

Apollo: GAH! Pearl! What are you doing here!

Pearl: Surprising you for your birthday! Come on! I'm going to take you out to lunch!

Pearl tries to open the door but…it's locked.

Apollo: Um, Pearl? What are you waiting for? Take my blindfold off and get us out of here!

Pearl: Uh…Apollo? We…have a slight problem…the door's locked.

Apollo rips of his blindfold.

Apollo: WHAT? NO NO NO THIS CANNOT BE HAPPENING! I CANNOT BE LOCKED IN A CLOSET WITH PEARL FEY!

Pearl: Hey why not? It's not like I'm going to rape you or something! I'm not THAT desperate!

Apollo: (starts going crazy) hehehaha…I bet you did this on purpose. DIDN'T YOU? You…you….FREAK! Ms. I can command dead spirits to take over my body! YOU DID THIS TO HAVE A FORCED MAKE-OUT SESSION DIDN'T YOU? HAHAHAHEHEHAHAHAHEHE! IS THIS WHAT YOU WANTED?

Pearl starts to cry.

Pearl: N-N-No! T-that's not what I-I-I wanted at all! I…

She starts losing it and getting angry.

Pearl: I just wanted to do something nice for you're birthday you, you ungrateful loudmouth! You think I'm weird? How about you huh? Mr. I scream my head off to make money so I don't end up as a grape juice hobo! Face it! You're not even a good lawyer!

Apollo: OH NO YOU DIDN'T! I got this attorney's badge through hard work and talent!

Pearl: Yeah sure! If you call screaming useless and baseless conjectures in court talent!

Apollo: You little….

Pearl suddenly gasps and faints. She collapses on the floor with a thud.

Apollo: Pearl! W-W-What happened?

Apollo hurries to try and call Ema, but as he's dialing, he begins to lose consciousness.

Apollo: Room…spinning…getting…dark…

*THUD* Apollo passes out and both him and Pearl lay on the ground for who knows how long.

On the other side of the door…(3 hours later)

Ema: Are you sure this is the last place you saw them?

Maya: Yes. Pearl told me she was going to do something special for Apollo's birthday.

Ema: Well I don't hear any partying going on…are you sure they didn't leave for the restaurant or something?

Maya: I'm positive. Pearly told me that she would call me before she left!

Ema: Then either they've been kidnapped…or quick! Open the door Maya!

Maya: Nnnrgh..I can't! It's shut tight!

Ema: Oh no, they're both trapped in there! There isn't enough oxygen for them to survive a lot longer! Quick! SOMEONE HELP!

Maya: I'll go run and find the janitor! You stay here and make sure they're okay!

Ema: Maya…HOW AM I SUPPOSED TO MAKE SURE THEY'RE OKAY? I CAN'T SEE THEM!

Maya: DON'T YOU YELL AT ME! I'M NOT THE ONE WHO'S JUST STANDING THERE!

Ema: Hey! You VOLUNTEERED to help! And I'm not just STANDING here! I am trying to think up a good plan to help save Apollo and Pearl who could possibly be dying AS WE SPEAK!

Klavier: Frauleins! What is the matter! What is going on?

Ema: Apollo and Pearl are trapped in that closet and we need to get them out before they die!

Klavier: So…Herr Forehead and Fraulein Fey are trapped in the janitor's closet why…?

Maya: Pearly was trying to do something nice for Apollo's birthday. So she sent him a card to meet her in the janitor's closet. She was going to blindfold him and then lead him to that fancy restaurant Tres Bien. Pearly said she would call me as soon as she left, but I never received any calls in the past 3 hours. I began to worry and called Ema. We both have determined that those two are locked in that closet with a small supply of oxygen.

Klavier: Okay frauleins. Step back and let the professional do this.

Klavier kicks the door and breaks it open in one swift moment revealing the two unconscious people.

Ema: Klavier! How did you do that! The door was locked!

Klavier: Being a rockstar means working out ja? And that is the procedure I use when I am locked out of my dressing room.

Maya: PEARLY! Wake up please! NO NO NO NO EMAAA! CALL AN AMBULANCE! AND TELL NICK TO BUY ME A BURGER!

Klavier: I will go get her the burger you go call the ambulance Fraulein.

Ema: Got it.

In the hospital…(2 hours later)

Maya: Doctor a-are they going to be okay?

Phoenix: Please doctor, tell us that they're going to survive.

Doctor: Relax, are you their guardians?

Phoenix: Well-

Maya: Yes! Of course we are! Isn't that right? Sweetie?

Phoenix: ugghh…

Doctor: Alright, the two will be fine but they need time to recover. The lack of oxygen has damaged some of their organs and tissues. We were lucky that they were brought to the hospital in time. If it was any more than a half hour later, those two would probably never wake up.

Maya: May we see our two children?

Doctor: No not yet. We don't want to disturb them while they are resting. They haven't woken up since they were checked in. We have requested that no one visits them until they have recovered enough to wake up.

Phoenix: We understand. Let's go Maya.

Maya: You still owe me a burger…

In the hospital room…

Apollo: Ugh….my head….where, where am I? The hospital? Oh my gosh Pearl!

Apollo tries to get out of bed but finds that it hurts to move.

Nurse: Oh good you're awake! Has the girl woken yet?

Apollo: I don't think so. I just got up.

Nurse: Oh, I'll let the doctor know of your awakening.

She leaves the room in a hurry.

Apollo: Pearl? Pearl! Are you still there?

Pearl: Nmnngh…wh-what happened? Why are we in the hospital?

Apollo: I don't know…here's the doctor! He might know!

Doctor: Ah, I see you two are awake. Should I go get your mom and dad?

Apollo and Pearl: M-mom and Dad? We aren't-

Maya: APOLLO AND PEARL! MY WITTLE BABIES!

Phoenix: Sup kiddos.

Apollo: Oh. Those two.

Pearl: Mystic Mayyyaa! What happened?

Maya: Shhh Pearly. I'll tell you once we get out of here.

Doctor: Well I see that you both seem to be ready to go home. I'll go tell the nurse to sign you both out.

Maya: C'mon kids follow mommy!

Apollo & Phoenix: Uh…

Outside in the hallway

Ema: Apollo! You're okay! I thought you were a goner there for a second…

Klavier: Herr Forehead and Fraulein Fey! You are okay!

Trucy: Yeah! We missed you so much!

Phoenix: C'mon guys let's go. We gotta get back to the agency…and I got to get more grape juice.

And everyone walks back home living happily ever after…until the next chapter.

A/N: Another chapter done! Okay guys so this was a really fun chapter to write and I hope y'all liked it! I've noticed how I've lost a few reviewers….sad face….but I just want to thank those of you who have stuck with me. I'll give you guys a shoutout at the end of the story!

Review…?
