(Blossom's P.O.V)

'Where there is desire
There is gonna be a flame
Where there is a flame
Someone's bound to get burned
But just because it burns
Doesn't mean you're gonna die
You've gotta get up and try, and try, and try
Gotta get up and try, and try, and try
You gotta get up and try, and try, and try'



'Eh, eh, eh
Funny how the heart can be deceiving
More than just a couple times
Why do we fall in love so easy?
Even when it's not right'



'Where there is desire
There is gonna be a flame
Where there is a flame
Someone's bound to get burned
But just because it burns
Doesn't mean you're gonna die
You've gotta get up and try, and try, and try
Gotta get up and try, and try, and try
You gotta get up and try, and try, and try'



"Blossom, the dummy has been broken for a while now...I think you can stop" Buttercup said

I ignored her and continued my punches. I knew the dummy had broken some time ago and I was now punching the air but I couldn't stop. My fists were caked with dried blood and my body was drenched in sweat. My skin was burning but I couldn't stop. My anger was blinding me. I had to keep punching. I had to work it out. If I didn't I would explode. I need to keep my composure. I am a powerpuff girl and I need to be able to defend my city when it needs me.

Buttercup was still talking. I decided to focus on the lyrics blasting through the training room as I continued punching and jabbing the hair in different locations. My eyes staring at the blank white wall.

'Ever worry that it might be ruined
And does it make you wanna cry?
When you're out there doing what you're doing
Are you just getting by?
Tell me are you just getting by, by, by...'

The music suddenly stopped. I stopped punching and snapped my gaze over to Buttercup. She had my phone in one hand and the aux cord to the stereo in the other. I grounded my teeth in frustration.

"Buttercup... go... away..." I grounded out,but she didn't flinch. She only stared at me. It was like she was analogizing me...looking into my mind... and that pissed me off.

"You're angry" she stated

I scoffed

"Yeah? And what was your first clue" I rolled my eyes. I was losing my drive as the pain from my body started to set in. I tried to ignore it.

Buttercup sighed

"Blossom you need to talk about it and you need to talk to them. It's been 4 days!"

The rage was back

"WHAT WOULD YOU KNOW!" I growled out. My skin was getting hotter. I felt like I was burning.

"I KNOW YOU FUCKED UP AND NOW YOU ARE RUNNING AWAY LIKE A COWARD!" Buttercup growled back. Her green eyes blazed.

"I did nothing..." I gritted out

Buttercup clenched her fist

"Why are you always like this... Why is it always everyone else's fault but your own?!" Buttercup screeched.

"You don't know what you are talking about, Buttercup" I said clenching my own fist. Ignoring the stings that spread from my sore knuckles.

"You loved him and lost him"

"Shut up"

She was pocking a monster and didn't even know it

"You always were possessive... what got mad because you didn't have all the nerd's attention?"

"Buttercup shut up" I grounded out. I felt the fire and tried pushing it away.

"Why Blossom?...Is because you lost lover boy? Or is it because you still wanna fuck the geek?. Which is it Blossom? Which one is it huh? TELL ME!"


I was losing my cool. I felt the flames bursting beneath my fingertips. It was becoming painful. I could control it if she would just shut up. Hot tears were running down my cheeks as I painfully grounded my teeth. She knew nothing.

She continued pushing me. Her words were loud and clear in my mind as I tried to escape. I need to escape her...escape the flames. I needed to be free so I could I could think.


Why wont shut up.

I clenched my eyes shut and covered my ears with my hands. I was breaking.

What she said next was my undoing

"You are not worthy enough for Brick or Dexter and certainly not worthy enough to call yourself a PowerPuff Girl" Buttercup grounded out envisaging every word.

I stopped breathing for a second. The flames that had been trying to break free had escaped and I welcomed them with open arms. I opened my eyes and blankly stared into my sister's green ones. Without thinking I calmly closed the space between us before I quickly grabbed her wrist and slung her into the wall. The beast was out...and it was thirsty for blood.

"Wrong move bitch" Buttercup said as she spat out blood onto the white tiled floor.

Buttercup barreled into my body sending us both to the ground. I felt nothing even as her fist collided with my jaw sending my face to the side. I wrapped my legs around her neck and pulled her back.

I jumped up and summoned the flames to my fingertips. The warmth was the only thing I felt at the moment. I threw spears of fire straight at Buttercup's surprised form. Buttercup barley dodged my attack. I charged forward as fire swirled around my hand. I punched her in the gut earning a groan that fueled the fire. My punches were precise and quick. Just as I was about to send a kick to her jaw she grabbed my ankle and swung me across the room and straight into a wall. The impact left an imprint in the wall but my body still felt nothing. Buttercup attacked me with a ball of electric energy.

My body lurched but I still felt nothing. I quickly sent balls of fire back at her before attacking with punches and kicks. Te fight went on fr what seemed like hours. Neither of us gave up. Punches and kicks were thrown wildly in the air and on the ground. Fire against electricity. The power in the room made the already thick air almost unbearable. I was breathing heavily. The Beast was slowly tiring and fatigue was catching up. Buttercup attacked me with an electric spear straight through my chest. She intentionally missed my heart that I could tell but the shock of the attack was enough for me to collapse to the ground. The beast was tired and had returned to its cage. I felt all the pain at once. My limbs screamed with fatigue. The blood from my open wounds dripped to the floor, I felt he pain that was in my heart burst open. I let out a scream of pure agony as the tears ran down my face. I couldn't help it. It was too much and it hurt worse than anything I've ever experienced in my whole life. Buttercup got down on the floor with me and held me close.

She was giving me the comfort I desperately needed and I accepted it, as I cried into her torn black tank top.

"You were right Buttercup. Everything is my fault. I should have never blew up on Bubbles the way I did. She did nothing and did not deserve it. I was just blinded by jealousy...she got along better with him then I ever did... even when were dating. Bubbles had always had the most friends and the attention. I just felt like she could take anything from me and that scared me. Brick hates me now and will realize that he should be dating Bubbles instead" I cried harder

Buttercup rubbed my back and sighed.

"He doesn't hate you but he is hurt. You make it seem like you loved Dexter instead of him"

I quickly shook my head

"No. I love Brick! He means so much to me!"

"Then tell him so you can fix this. Apologize to him and Bubbles. They will understand...but you can't run away anymore. Tell them the truth. The truth will set you free Bloss"

She's right...

"You are right Buttercup. I'm sorry for the way I have been acting"

Buttercup scoffed

"Finally! I've been waiting for you to apologize for your bitchyness for years!"

I sighed.

And there goes the moment...

"You just had to ruin the moment..."

"Damn right. You know I hate sappy shit"

"You know you are a real bi-.."


We snapped our heads to the door where a red faced professor stood with a glare set on Buttercup and I.

We both looked at each other and then the professor sheepishly.

"Um training...?"

At that same time a hanging light fell from the ceiling and onto the floor. Making me and my sister flinch as the professors vein bulged.
