Stark 369

It didn't take long to arrive at Billy's lair, seeing as the cops were looking on the other side of town. He sat penny down on a chair and looked around warily, unsure what to do.

Penny looked around the lair, absolutely gobsmacked. How had he got hold of all this? When had he thought up the calculations for that... thing? She thought of thelast Saturday at the laundromat. Billy hadn't showed up.

"Oh my..."

"Do you want a water or hot beverage or...?" He felt stupid asking about that, but felt it best to start simple with her.

"No thanks." She was sure this was some bizarre hallucination. Maybe something had got into the water. Or she'd been too excited about the new shelter and started seeing things. Or Captain Hammer's declaration that they "totally had sex" had made her faint. Anything was better than believing this was true.

"You don't look well," he stated, looking at her odd expression. "Maybe you should lay down...?"

Penny shook her head.

"No, no, Billy..."

"Is... is something wrong?" He knew exactly what was wrong, but he needed to hear her say it. He blinked a few times, waiting.

Penny stared at him for a moment, then shook her head.

"I can't," she said to no one in particular. "This isn't right, I can't believe this."

Billy nodded awkwardly, knowing that it would take time for her to accept it. "You're in shock. You need to rest. Would you like me to take you home, or do you want to stay here?" 'Here,' he prayed, 'Please stay here.'

"This can't be happening," she mumbled. In the back of her mind it occurred to her that the press would be at her apartment. Her outburst was bound to have fuelled vicious imaginations.

"But it is. It had to." Billy wanted to reach out, to hold her, to comfort her, but he didn't. He blinked.

Penny lifted her head,searching his face for some explanation.

"I can't believe I didn't see this."

Stark 369

"I'm still me, Penny. Still Billy." He laughed awkwardly, but found that it was not at all funny, so shut his mouth.

She shook her head, her eyes lowered to the floor.

Billy blinked, trying to find something to say. He glanced around nervously. "Rest. I'll be back... later." And with that he walked off to go shower and change. He needed to... think.

Eventually the emotional exhaustion of the day overcame Penny and she slumped in the chair, asleep.

When Billy came out in normal clothes, wiping his wet hair with a towel, he saw Penny asleep. He smiled briefly and walked to his bed, picking up a blanket and putting it on her. He sat on the edge of the bed and nodded, remembering the night. Soon after, he crawled in back onto the bed without a blanket and slept fast.

When Penny woke up her mind was no less foggy. She'd hoped that she'd open her eyes to her own room, but apparently she hadn't dreamed.

5/25/2012 #48
Stark 369

Billy woke when he heard Penny stir. He sat up in the bed, fixing his hair briefly, blinking, then looking to her. "Morning."

5/25/2012 #49
Madame Apathy

Penny looked at him and smiled. He wasn't wearing the lab coat any more.

5/25/2012 #50
Stark 369

She was smiling. Penny was smiling. That was a good sign... right? Billy took it as such. "How are you?"

5/25/2012 #51
Madame Apathy

"You're awake," she said, her eyes running around the room as she tried to distract herself.

5/25/2012 #52
Stark 369

"And are you," he stated warily. She looked... confused.

5/25/2012 #53
Madame Apathy

"Your hair's sticking up," she said quietly, touching her forehead to try and demonstrate to him.

5/25/2012 #54
Stark 369

"Right." He grabbed a comb and a mirror, fixing it properly. When it looked good he turned to her. "Good?"

5/25/2012 #55
Madame Apathy

She nodded, still numb from the day before.

5/25/2012 #56
Stark 369

"So," he glanced around. "how are you..?

5/25/2012 #57
Madame Apathy

Penny had by this point found some of her words.

"Awful," she replied. "My boyfriend is dead, my friend is a murderer, and I couldn't stop it. How am I meant to fix this?"

5/25/2012 #58
Stark 369

Billy opened and closed his mouth a few times.

"I don't know that you can."

5/25/2012 #59
Madame Apathy

"This would be easier if I knew why it was happening," she muttered to herself.
