Chapter Six: Story Time
Sorry I didn't get this out before April 10th like I wanted but basically was busy, lazy and I got 'stuck' when it came to what to write.
Now for those who have NOT noticed yet. THIS FIC IS A BETRAYAL FIC. THE INNER SCOUTS ARE TO SIMPLY PUT IT, BAD! AND WANT TO KILL SERENA AND SYBIL- AN ORIGINAL CHARACTER BUT NOT A MARY SUE. IF YOU ARE ONE WHO DOES NOT LIKE INNER BETRAYAL FICS THEN CLICK THE BACK BUTTON NOW. I DON'T WANT TO CHECK MY EMAIL AND GO "OH YAY. I GOT A REVIEW" ONLY TO READ IT AND IT SAY HOW BETRAYAL FICS SUCK, ARE OVER USED, AND WOULD NEVER HAPPEN.
I DON'T CARE. IT'S FANFICTION. I DON'T CARE THAT IF YOU DON'T LIKE BETRAYAL FICS. I DON'T CARE IF YOU THINK BETRAYAL FICS ARE OVER USED. I WRITE WHAT I WANT AND FEEL LIKE WRITING. I DON'T DISLIKE THE INNERS OR DARIEN BUT JUST WANTED/FELT LIKE WRITING A BETRAYAL FIC. SO PLEASE, IF YOU FEEL LIKE YOU HAVE TO BE A RUDE ASSHOLE AND "READ" MY FIC EVEN THOUGH YOU DON'T LIKE BETRAYALS AND KNEW IT WAS A BETRAYAL FIC BEFORE YOU CLICKED ON IT TO READ, DON'T LEAVE A REVIEW. YOUR WASTING MY TIME AND YOURS. AND I REALLY DON'T WANT TO READ HOW YOU THINK I SUCK AND YADA YADA.
Sorry for those loyal readers and those who don't do these acts but I just had to put that in. I'm just so amazed and tired that people willingly read something they don't like just to insult others and try to make them "bend" to their views and thoughts. I thank those who read my story and enjoy it and those who review. I know that I'm not the perfect writer, but no one's perfect. So why try to belittle them for something most do. I feel better after getting all that off my mind. Thank you and I hope you enjoy the chapter.
"It's a pleasure to meet our little brother's friends." Serena said politely, smiling at the boys. Sybil snorted and crossed her arms over her chest. "Sybil! Be nice." Serena told elbowing her sister in the side.
"Yeah, what she said." Sybil said frowning.
"I apologize for my sister. It's hard to believe that she actually has manners sometimes." Serena declared scolding Sybil, who just rolled her eyes. Quatre shook his head in silent laughter.
"So what are you two doing back here after so many years?" Quatre questioned looking at the two, whom suddenly became serious.
"We needed a vacation. A get away of sorts to relax." Serena answered, her clear blue eyes becoming unfocused, starring off to the side at nothing. Heero narrowed his eyes at the girls in suspicion; he glanced over to Wufei who also was staring at the girls with suspicion.
"A vacation away from what?" Quatre asked.
"Life." Sybil simply stated.
"It's been a while since we've just been able to sit down and relax." Serena said snapping out of her daze. Sybil walked up to Quatre, throwing a arm over his shoulders.
"So, what have you been up to little brother? Hmm? Causing mass destruction while saving the world from evil?"
"Much be fun. Get to travel a lot?" Serena asked smirking along with her sister. Quatre looked at the two with wide eyes.
"So...what is it like to be a Gundam pilot? Sounds like an important job." Sybil inquired, taking her arm off Quatre's shoulders and walked over towards Serena standing by her side. The boys' eyes widened.
"Y...you know? H...how did you know?" Quatre requested shocked, stuttering slightly. Sybil rolled her eyes while Serena giggled.
"Oh please. Of coarse we know. How we know is a completely different story though." Sybil replied, sitting back down on the lounge chair. She picked her discarded sunglasses off the ground and placed them over her eyes.
"It's not that hard to figure out Quatre. After all you are our little brother," Serena stated trying to keep her sister and her own secret a secret from their brother and his war friends. "Even though we haven't kept in touch with you, we have a friends who's high up there in stature. She was nice enough to keep us up-to-date with what's going on in your life." It wasn't too far from the truth. After al Trista is high up in stature and did keep the twins up-to-date with what was happening in this world.
Heero and Wufei didn't seem to buy the girls story. They shared a quick glance at each other and with a silent conversation they both decided that the girls couldn't be trusted and that they would have to keep an eye on them. They were unsure of whether to involve Quatre in on their "mission" since he is the girls younger brother, but they would have to find out who these girls are and how they know so much.
"So, how long do you plan on staying here?" Quatre inquired, curious if they would stay or disappear again.
"Here, as in this house of here as in sight and contact?" Sybil inquired, tipping her head to the side, glancing at the boys over her dark tinted sunglasses.
"Either. Both. I just want to know whether or not you two are going to disappear again for years on end with out any contact causing everyone to think the worst- that you're dead." Quatre's frustration seeping out in his words.
We're sorry little brother. We didn't realize how much our leaving hurt you." Serena apologized.
"Father was so sad when you two disappeared. He would always say that it was his fault you two were gone." Quatre voiced.
"He never told you?" Sybil stated, more than questioned.
"Never told me what?" Quatre inquired.
""We should all go inside and sit down and we'll tell you our story. Your guys go in the living room. Serena and myself will go change quickly and meet you there." Sybil suggested, standing up and entered the house. Serena following behind her. The guys looked over at Quatre who shrugged his shoulders.
"I guess we should go inside and sit down to let them explain. I really want to know what's going on and what had happened." He entered the house behind his older sisters. The others followed after their friend, then the five of them sat down in the living room on the various furniture, waiting for the long-lost Winner twins.
"What are we going to tell them Sybil?" Serena asked in a slight panic. "We can't tell them the truth."
"I know Sere. Don't worry about it. We'll just say dad thought it best to send us away with our aunt Trista to keep us safe from the war that was breaking out. It is the truth, just some details are missing." Sybil calmed her sister.
"I know. Short, to the point, and they never will know the full truth. At least not till we want them to know." Sybil smirked. Then headed to her room to change out of her bathing suit. The girls quickly changed into simple flared blue jeans and a t-shirt.
"Okay." Serena started. "I supposed it's time you learned the truth of our disappearance."
"Ten years ago dad decided, since war was starting up, that it would be best plus safer if we were to stay with mom's sister Trista. We've basically been with her all these years. The only reason we didn't keep in touch is because of safety reasons. Both your safety, being a Gundam pilot, and ours. Both Trista and father were afraid that the enemy would get a hold of the information of you being a Gundam pilot and use us against you and the other Gundams. " Sybil informed.
"So dad blamed himself..." Quatre started, putting the pieces together.
"Because he sent us away. He didn't want anything to happen to any of us and decided he had to do this. In order to protect all of us." Serena finished.
"So where have you been all these years?" Rashid asked, finally joining in on the conversation. The twins looked at each other.
"That is..." Serena started, unsure of what to say.
"That is classified information. We have been strictly forbidden to comment of answer questions of that nature." Sybil responded in her monotone voice. Heero and Wufei, already not trusting the girls, narrowed their eyes at them.
"Who are you really?" Heero demanded and pulled his gun out at the girls. "Who is it you work for?" Wufei joined in with his comrade and pulled out his own gun.
"Heero! Wufei!" Quatre shouted at his two stoic friends.
"I can't leave you girls alone for a day without you causing trouble." A female voice chuckled, echoing throughout the room. The boys turned their attention, and their guns, to where the voice came from.
"Who are you? Show you're self!" Wufei demanded. The woman stepped out of the shadows and into their line of slight.
"Trista? What are you doing here? I thought you weren't coming for another week or so." Serena inquired, surprised to see their aunt.
"Serena. Sybil." Trista greeted smiling. "I decided to check up on you two. Also I wanted to let you know that Michelle, Amara, and Hotaru have settled in our home. Quatre." She turned to the blond haired pilot. "It's been a while. I remember when your favorite words were "no" and "I don't wana." You've grown into a fine young man nephew." Sybil and Duo snorted in laughter.
"I can't imagine Q-man as a little tyke saying "no" and "I don't wana."" Duo said, "I imagined him dressed in little suits, acting like a British gentleman with every-other word coming out of his mouth "Thank-you", "I'm sorry" and "have a pleasant day."" Quatre blushed at the attention he was getting.
"Oh he was a little charmer. To the public, but at home I remember when I would try to get him to take a bath after him and the girls would play outside, especially when Sybil would push him in the mud," Trista paused in her story to look over at Sybil who rolled her eyes in return." I'd get him in the tub and turn away for a second and he'd be half way down the hall butt-naked screaming, "No! I don't wana take a bath."" She finished chuckling, while Duo let out a bark of laughter.
"Onnas Stop getting off the topic at hand. Just who are you and what are you doing here?!" Wufei demanded, getting angry at the subject change. Bother Heero's and his own gun still out and aiming at the three woman, who were standing next to each other. Trista sighed when the twins glanced over at her wondering what they should say to get out of this situation peacefully.
"My name is Trista Meiou. My older sister was Masumi. She married Isaac Winner and mothered his twenty-seven other children from previous marriages having three children herself- Sybil, Serena, and Quatre. She had died during childbirth with Quatre due to complications. I had offered to help Isaac with the children- namely the twins and Quatre since they were the youngest. My brother-in-law had been approached by Instructor H and was forced to have Quatre become a Gundam pilot.
"The other girls were old enough to take care of themselves but the twins were still too young. Not to mention Isaac didn't like how H would try to get the girls to train and become pilots as well. We decided it was best if I took the girls someplace else for their safety. It was only recently that it became safe enough for the three siblings to be reunited. That and seeing how it was becoming unsafe to stay where we were." Trista informed them, not telling the whole truth, but enough to keep the boys happy. The guys turned to Rashid, who would know if it was the truth- with him being 'part of the family'.
"That is true. I was just never informed of the full extent of what was going on. Mostly for safety reasons." He confirmed.
"What do you mean it became unsafe where you were at?" Quatre asked, becoming worried when he ran their story through his head. Serena and Sybil glared at their aunt.
"Well...ah..." Serena stumbled, trying to put their situation in a way where it's wouldn't give away their secrete.
"Serena's, now ex-fiancé, cheated with a friend of ours on the side and recently decided that the best way to get our of his relationship with Serena was to kill both Serena and myself. Luckily, we listened in on a conversation between the group of back stabbing bitches without them knowing and got away before they could do anything." Sybil said nonchalant, hatred seeping into her words in her last sentence. Quatre's eyed bugged out and his jaw dropped. "Yeah. What a bunch of psychos. But Trista thought it would be best to get away from there and stay/hide here since they don't know our true identity."
I thought of making the chapter longer but decided to stop and update. I'll start on the next chapter soon. I have some ideas bouncing around in my head for this story. Though lately I've been focusing a more on my Harry Potter fics- Learning to Love and Hidden Secretes. But I'm trying to make it so I split my time writing between all/most of my stories, though it's kind of hard when my muse tends to pull me in a different direction than I want it to.
Well thanks for reading. Hope you review- unless you're doing what I've been complaining about and disregarding my warnings, then just leave. I really don't want to hear it anymore.
AN: I wanted to repost this because I had forgotten put say something about this chapter. I know there are several different theories about Quatre's family. There's how his sisters and himself are test tube babies, how just Q's a test tube baby, and how the thirty of them are from different marriages. I decided to have Quatre, Serena and Sybil be from the same mother and the other twenty-seven be from previous marriages, mostly because they're the central point of the story. Oh and I have been meaning to take the author's note off and add it to this chapter, but I had forgotten it had been there. My brain is mush early in the morning, but that's when my best ideas come forth.
I thinking that it will be:
Then more than likely:
There have also been suggestions to these parings:
Lt. Noin/ Sally Po -I don't know if I'll do that….i might not even have them in the fic and if they are not a big role.
Relena/ Dorthy -I don't know about that one. But I WONT have Relena be annoying.
Treize/ Lady Une-I don't know about these two either, I was thinking about maybe having Treize with Luna.
I don't want to take on too many parings because then it will be too much for me and I'm afraid that if I do take on a lot of parings it will get out of control and the story will become too much. The main focus of the story is on Serena and Sybil with a the others on the side.
