THE COLDEST HEART: CREE LINCOLN

Disclaimer: I owe nothing, except maybe this fic.

Cree was on stage, outdone in a strapless pink dress. The room was packed. She always knew she was granted with an angelic voice; but she was sorta sorry about the way she was about to put it to use.

Yet she faced the light, ready for everything that was to come that night. Her dark eyes met those of the one single person she was about to do this for. Abby smiled a encouraging for her sister.

Then, the strong voice of the teenaged beauty rang out: "This is a song that I'd like to dedicate to my younger sister, Abby. Love you sis." At least she hoped that would make up for the three years of rivalry.

The music began to play (A/N: Don't owe this song either, it's by the Classic Crime.). Cree nervously listens to the intro before her sweet, angelic voice carries trough the hall once more:

A couple f years and I'm a silhouette

My Halo is broken now

And I'm all that's left

I hate to dissapiont

But it's the way thing went

I was blind to the things that I did

And after what was said

Cree closes her eyes, trying to think happy thoughts as she sang. Her heartbeat kept prefect time with the music.

Tie up these loose ends

'Cause these voices are calling me out

I've got the solution

You can feed me to something

That is leaving this doubt

Cree opens her eyes again as she sings the chorus, her eyes meeting those of her sister once more. The clear shock of what her sister was singing was etched on Abby's face.

Whoa!

I'm losing hope

There's a hole in my heart

That's been cut out of stone

Whoa!

Cold comes, cold goes

Could you fill this hole?

'Cause I can't do it alone

Cree wraps the cord of the microphone around her wrist, basically cutting off the blood flow. But she didn't care. As she sang the next verse, she thought about how empty she'd felt since she left the K.N.D and betrayed her sister.

A couple of tears and I'm a broken mess

The sadness has taken me far too deep in regret

So sing me a song about something good

My heart's on the thrashing floor

And I've done every single thing I could

Abby knew Cree was singing for her. It was years since the sisters had communicated with each other without it ending in a fight.

I used to believe in

Some kind of feeling

That could change everything I thought I knew

But that door is closed

And my heart feels like it's frozen

If you hear me I can feel you

A tear was shed, unnoticed by the crowd, but Cree was sure Abby saw it roll down her cheek as she sang the chorus for the second time.

Whoa!

I'm losing hope

There's a hole in my heart

That's been cut out of stone

Whoa!

Cold comes, cold goes

Could you fill this hole?

'Cause I can't do it alone

Cree burst into the bridge, her eyes never leaving her sister, as if in fear that she would loose sight of her if her gaze adverted.

The coldest heart can be brought to life

When it's thrown into the fire of goodbyes

The coldest heart can be brought to life

When it's thrown into the fire of goodbyes

The coldest heart can be brought to life

When it's thrown into the fire of goodbyes

Then, the ebony beauty launched into the chorus again, her eyes burning with an agony that nobody seemed to notice. Nobody except for Abby.

I'm losing hope

There's a hole in my heart

That's been cut out of stone

Cold comes, cold goes

Could you fill this hole?

'Cause I can't do it alone

I'm losing hope

There's a hole in my heart

That's been cut out of stone

Cold comes, cold goes

Could you fill this hole?

'Cause I can't do it alone

The crowd was practically going wild by the time Cree sings the last verse; it didn't matter why the song, sung with so much emotion, was of emotional value to her.

I've got the coldest heart

(Cause I can't do it alone)

I've got the coldest heart

I've got the coldest heart

I've got the coldest heart

The building erupts into applause, not a single soul was left untouched by Cree's song. And Abby? She must've cheered hardest of all…


Later, in her bedroom, Cree was found removing her makeup. A gentle knock was heard at the door, and Cree called out: "Come in. The door's unlocked."

Moments later, Abby appeared in the door. "Hey, sis." She walked over to her elder sister, and Cree, unable to hold back tears, accepts an embrace form the smaller figure. Neither speaks for quite some time, just staying in their postion.

Then, Abby breaks the silence. "You sang that song for me didn't you." It was a statement, not a question. Cree nods anyways, trying to hold back a fresh wave of tears. Abby reaches up and wipes away a stray tear. "It'll be alright."

For a brief moment, Cree wondered why her sister sounded so certain, but she didn't dwell on it for too long, because Abby answers her unspoken question: "I heard ya, Cree. Loud and clear."


Cree's heart was made out of ice, ever since she left the K.N.D. The only feeling she felt with it was pain, pain that came form a massive hole in her life.

Countless of times had she tried to fill it by herself: By getting a new gig with the Teen Ninjas, by making new friends. She tried everything.

But all that time she knew what she really needed.

Her sister's love.

All that time she had spent admitting a silent plea for her sister's help. She couldn't fill this hole alone.

But on this night, as they held each other wordlessly, Abby did what she could to heal her sister's wound. And she succeeded.

A/N: That's a warp, peoples. Please R & R to tell me what you think.
