Sorry this one's late, my internet connection fucking hates me -.- So anyway, thank you for the reviews, enjoy!
"Welcome home, Murdoc!" Noodle said happily, hugging him tightly.
"Thanks, love," Murdoc said, returning the hug with a grin.
"Muds! It's good to have you back!" Russel exclaimed, blocking the doorway to give him a swift hug.
"Yeah, I know, Russ. You've missed me incredibly, but can I at least get into the house?" Murdoc said.
"Oh, sorry man," Russel snickered, stepping out of the way.
Someone came thundering down the stairs. Murdoc's face broke into a huge grin.
"Murdoc!" 2D yelled, crashing into him.
Russel grabbed 2D by the back of his collar, stopping them from falling. 2D grinned at Murdoc sheepishly, his face pink.
"Hello, faceache," Murdoc grinned, and then pulled 2D into a kiss.
Russel pulled a face and turned away. Noodle turned red and they quickly went up the stairs, giving them some privacy.
"When you two're done with all that shit, we're in the living room!" Russel called behind him as he hastily made his exit.
2D giggled into Murdoc's mouth. He pulled away and frowned slightly.
"Muds, can you really not tell me where you've been?" he said desperately.
Murdoc shook his head apologetically. Immediately after his release from the hospital, he had disappeared for two weeks. He had called them, telling them he had some private things to sort out.
2D pouted. Murdoc wrapped his arms around his neck, planting a kiss on his nose.
"C'mon, love. It's not important. Let's go join Russel and Noods," he said soothingly.
2D's face cleared, and he nodded. Hand in hand they went up the stairs to the living room, where a large collection of food and alcohol was sitting there on the table, waiting for them.
Noodle and Russel were sitting on the couch, already eating.
"Oh. We thought you'd be longer," Russel said with his mouth full.
"Don't worry, we'll make up for everything later," Murdoc smirked. 2D turned red and looked away.
The rest of the night was filled with food, alcohol and laughter.
Noodle made a grab for the champagne.
"Nope, still no alcohol, Noods," Russel said without looking up.
Noodle sighed and settled for her Sprite.
"Whatever happened to Stacey, anyway?"
She hadn't been arrested because there hadn't been enough proof. She had then disappeared without a trace.
Noodle immediately became alert when Russel asked the question. She and Murdoc exchanged glances.
"Think she moved to another country or something," Murdoc said vaguely, eying his champagne.
"Can't believe that bitch got away with all of that. It's fucking unbelievable!" Russel said angrily.
"Well, I hope her life really sucks wherever she is. No one will like her anyway, so she'll be lonely," 2D mused.
The others rolled their eyes goodnaturedly at this innocent, naïve remark. Murdoc pulled 2D closer, ruffling his hair.
"Yeah, you're right, Stu. I'm sure her life's horrible.." Murdoc said, humoring him.
He exchanged a brief smirk with Noodle, which went unseen by Russel and 2D.
"I've got good news, by the way!" he exclaimed suddenly. "Tomorrow, after the guests have done their part, the song should be done!"
The three of them cheered at this news.
"Finally! It's going to be awesome!" Russel grinned.
"It is," Murdoc agreed.
"Well, I'm off to bed. If the guests are coming tomorrow, I have to be at least partly alive," Russel sighed, groaning as he got up.
Noodle glanced at Murdoc and 2D, who were edging nearer to each other.
"I'm going, too. Good night," she said quickly, following Russel to the hall.
Murdoc wasted no time in closing the distance between him and 2D, capturing his lips roughly. Murdoc brushed his tongue along the seam of 2D's lips, causing the latter to shiver. He broke away for a second.
"I've missed you," 2D whispered, threading his hands through Murdoc's hair.
"I've missed you too," Murdoc replied with a small smile, stroking 2D's cheek with his thumb.
2D fell backwards onto the couch as Murdoc pressed his lips against his again, straddling him.
Five days before
There she was. It had taken Murdoc days to find her, his only knowledge being that she was in Hawaii, but there she finally was. Standing on the bridge, completely oblivious to the threat nearing her.
Murdoc quietly walked up to Stacey. She was leaning with her elbows on the railing of the bridge, blowing smoke into the night sky.
When he got to her, he pulled her roughly up by her hair and pressed the knife against her throat before she even knew what was happening.
"Hello, love," he growled as he dug the knife deeper into her skin.
"Wha.. how did you find me?" Stacey gasped.
She didn't even scream, she knew it was hopeless. For one, there was no one anywhere near this sodding bridge. And she knew Murdoc would have finished her off and left before anyone could have even started walking.
"I've got my connections. Anyway, that's not your problem. You're biggest problem right now is my good mate Satan," Murdoc said with a smirk, pulling the knife across her throat.
The only person who knew about this was Noodle. She and Murdoc had planned this together, both not accepting the fact that Stacey would be running free. Russel would be furious if he found out, and 2D would be absolutely frantic, so they decided to keep it to themselves. He was absolutely safe, there hardly lived any people in that little village she was staying in, and she had just arrived her so no one knew her, nor would they question her absence. It was all done.
Murdoc smirked slightly, thinking back as 2D lay curled up against his chest. Satisfaction and bliss seeped through him. Stacey was dead, he was recovered, their song would be done tomorrow, they were all back together again. And he had 2D. Everything was perfect.
