A/N: So here I am, in the middle of the night, sitting in front of my computer writing stuff for Lucket once again. RL has been crazy for the past 3 weeks and I've tried to make updates for my other stories but the writer's block has got in the way so I decided to cool myself down and write something a little bit lighter to cheer up my mood.

Thanks to Miss Junie for the wonderful prompts in thankyou_bucket community at livejournal, I'm so happy to have found this new spirit in the Lucket fandom. It needs to be revamped a little bit as it gets really quiet for the past 3 months. I want to contribute my love for Lucket so here it is!

I've decided to put these oneshots under the Love and Equations archive because basically it is meant to be for drabbles about Lucket. So, hope you guys will enjoy this, and do check thankyou_bucket community. It is a Lucket heaven if I must say. I'll post this on the community as well under the name bon2410. Please leave me some reviews because as usual I'd love to know what you guys think about it. And for those who have been very generous in sharing their thoughts for my previous oneshot, thank you so, so much you guys. I really appreciate it from the bottom of my heart! :)

Enjoy!

LOVE AND EQUATIONS

-II-

Do the Math

A 100-Word Lucket Challenge


* Featuring Jim Brickman's Valentine album as the song inspirations.


1. Infinity

"No pressure, no diamond." – Thomas Carlyle

Genre/s: Angst/Tragedy

Song: Remembrance - Jim Brickman

Summary: As Hope Plaza headed towards destruction, Lucas had to deal a critical decision. Would he risk himself to push the limit, for the sake of the one he loved? Teaser for The Enigma. -AU-

If he could describe heaven, he would be happy to announce that he had found one.

The fire burned his skin with its glorious pain, but all he could see was her. She eyed him with her wary eyes - those beautiful blue eyes - screaming for him as he shoved her with his last strength before the blinding light swallowed him into darkness.

The world was dying. Hope Plaza was destroyed, taking his dreams along as it crumbled into ashes. But he felt no regrets. For once, he'd found peace, in his gleaming precious one. His Bucket, was saved.


2. Equation

Flowers

Genre/s: Romance/Humor

Song: Simple Things - Jim Brickman

Summary: Lucas has always been treating Skye as a problem that needed to be solved. After lots of experiments and failures, would he finally realized that she was not a series of calculations, just like series of numbers on his paper work? Sometimes a genius needed a break as well.

"You think I'm some sort of equation here? Do the math, Lucas. I'm not your graphs and numbers." She spat in irritation as he stood there in front of her with a large bouquet of flowers in his hands.

Finally, he gave up and threw the flowers to the ground, condemning his idiotic self and grabbed her face in his hands, kissing her fiercely.

"See?" She sighed as they broke away. "It wasn't so hard, was it?" She leaned down and took the bouquet in her hands, shoving it to him abruptly. "You've had your answer all along, genius."


3. Counting

"Life isn't measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away."

Genre/s: Romance/Drama

Song: Rocket To The Moon - Jim Brickman

Summary: Lucas had finally found his life again. As he waited for Skye on the end of the aisle, he began to realize that she was all he needed. Even without an air to breathe, he would survive. As long as she was with him, he would live.

Every minute, every second. Every step, every heart beat. He was counting, until the moment she would stand before him, taking the last trace of his breath away.

She was the life, the half part of his broken soul. There was nothing in this world that he wanted more. She was everything. His light, his air. His source of existence.

As she walked along the aisle, eyes staring deeply into his, he knew from that moment on, that his life would never be the same again. He had risen from the death, and he had lived, because of her.


4. Negative

"Some days you're the bug, some days you're the windshield."

Genre/s: Angst/Drama

Song: Change Of Heart - Jim Brickman & Olivia Newton-John

Summary: Skye had come to the point in her life where she couldn't see through the deeds that Lucas had done to her and the colony.

Her eyes spoke the truth, searing his skin with the burning hatred emanated from her penetrating gaze.

It was too late. She had closed the doors around her, leaving him with one choice to walk away.

"I hate you." She whispered bitterly, yanking her arm off as he tried to reach for her.

She started to walk pass him, brushing her shoulder roughly against his. She turned around, taking one last glance at him, relishing the waves of emotions in the inside.

"I'm sorry." He whispered weakly as she shook her head. "It's not even worth it, Lucas. I won't forgive you this time. It's over."


5. Binary

Stone

Genre/s: Romance/Hurt/Comfort

Song: The Gift - Jim Brickman, Colin Raye, Susan Ashton

Summary: It was all about trust. Just as hard and solid as a stone, their love was strong enough to hold on to each other. Even as tribulation came, they knew that nothing would ever tear them apart. Teaser for Backfired.

"Open your eyes, Bucket." He whispered, taking the blindfold off from her eyes. Her smile gleamed in the sun as she threw her hands around his neck, kissing his lips gently.

Their feet dangling over the rocks beneath them, relishing the feel of light sprays of water, as they held in each other's embrace.

He gently swooped her into his arms, holding her tightly to him. "Are you scared?" he asked. "I trust you." She murmured, urging him to jump.

And with a smile, they plunged into the depth of the water, sinking as hard and solid as a stone.


6. Symbols

Chocolate

Genre/s: Humor/Suspense

Song: Valentine - Jim Brickman

Summary: It was Valentine's Day and Lucas decided to give a little gift to her favorite sister. Surely it would not be a normal thing when it came to dealing with a psychopath. And Lucas just had a mind of his own.

"I have a present for my special sister." Lucas announced cheerfully, handing a small box to her as a smirk appeared across his face.

Skye took the box gingerly and took off the lid. Her eyes widen in surprise as she saw the two metal objects that lay neatly over a soft fabric.

"Those bullets you gave me last year, was the sweetest thing anyone had ever given to me." He pulled her tight against him, despite her effort to push him away.

"And as you've been very sweet to me, I decided to return the favor." He whispered darkly.
