Hey guys! Sorry for the long wait! Life happens and school is just piling up. I just got through a round of midterms and have to start preparing for upcoming school projects. I’m not sure when the next update will be – but thanks to all those who have stuck with me during the slow process of this fic. And if this note doesn’t make sense, then it’s because I’ve fried my brain cells by studying too much!
Note: In case any of you don’t remember, Jenna is the name of Z’s doll – which was mentioned in chapter 2.
Love is everything it’s cracked up to be. It really is worth fighting for, being brave for, and risking everything for. – Eric Jong
“Hey pretty lady, wanna talk?”
Z glanced up as Caleb sat down beside her and she felt a small smile come to her lips. However, the smile faded as she remembered the reason that made her so upset in the first place. The yellow ranger gave a soft sigh, raising her knees to her chest and resting her chin on them. It had been a long and tiring day and it had been completely awful. “Not really,” she replied.
“Come on,” Caleb coaxed as he wrapped an arm around her. Automatically, she leaned into his embrace and felt a lot better. It felt nice to be held. “You know you can tell me anything.”
There was silence and Caleb frowned when he realized that he wasn’t going to get an answer just yet. He let out a sigh and then smiled a bit as a few memories came to him. “Remember when you were younger, whenever you had a problem, you would always run to me?”
Z felt herself smile and she giggled a bit. “You always did know how to make me feel better,” she admitted.
“I remember this one time when you were ten and Keegan put gum into your hair. You cried for weeks.”
“I was mad at Keegan for so long,” Z laughed. “But then you punished him and made him take on my chores for two months.”
“Yep,” Caleb grinned and then a silence once again ensued. “So, wanna tell me what’s wrong?”
She hesitated, and then sighed. “Caleb, have you ever been in love?”
Her friend looked surprised and than began chuckling. “So that’s what your gloomy mood is all about. You have boy problems.”
“It’s not funny,” Z replied hotly. “Caleb! Stop laughing! I don’t know what to do!”
“Well,” Caleb cleared his throat as his laughing fit came to a stop. “Just let things run its course.”
“So, what do you do when the guy you like is spending lots of time with another girl that already has a boyfriend?”
“Syd and Bridge are best friends, of course they’re going to hang out. And when you stop being jealous, you’ll see that Syd doesn’t have feelings for Bridge the way she does for Sky.”
“How did you know I was talking about Bridge and Syd?”
Caleb gave her a bored look. “You weren’t exactly subtle the last few days. And you forget who you’re talking to… all of us street kids are very good at observing.”
Z bit her lip and avoided Caleb’s gaze.
“So you like Bridge, huh?”
“I never said it was Bridge!”
“You didn’t have too.”
The yellow ranger sighed, knowing it was a useless argument. “I don’t know what to do. I’ve never liked anyone before.”
Caleb smiled and patted the top of her head. “Just wait and see. You have nothing to worry about.” He then stood up and walked out of the common room, leaving Z sitting on the couch, feeling more confused than ever.
“I think we should lock them in a closet.”
Sky looked up from his desk and turned to face her, his expression filled with amusement. “You can’t lock them in a closet, Syd.”
“Why not?” Sydney was sitting cross-legged on his bed, leaning against his pillows as she inspected her nails. “You seem them do it in movies all the time and each time the couples come out of the locked closet happy and together. Besides, it’ll be fast and easy!”
The blue ranger let out a soft chuckle and shook his head. “You can’t lock them in a closet,” he repeated.
Sydney pouted and went back to inspecting her nails and he went back to his paperwork. And for twenty minutes, they sat in silence, enjoying each other’s company. Then –
“You think we should write them secret love notes and signed with each of their names?”
Sky looked up once more. “You mean, send a note to Z with Bridge’s name on it and another to Bridge with Z’s name on it?”
This time he laughed out loud. He stood up from his desk and headed over to where his girlfriend was sitting. Her hair was tied up in a casual ponytail and she was wearing one of his faded blue SPD shirts along with her favorite pajama bottoms and her fluffy pink robe. He sat next to her, wrapping an arm around her waist. She leaned into his embrace, resting her head against his shoulder comfortably. “I think you were a little closer with the closet idea,” he told her. “Why do you want to see Bridge and Z together so bad?”
“They would look cute together, don’t you think?”
“Sure, but I don’t think you should be meddling.”
“I am not meddling,” Sydney stuck out her tongue at Sky.
“Yeah, you’re not meddling,” Sky paused. “Yet.”
“I just wanna see Bridge and Z happy.”
“Syd, we don’t even know if Z has feelings for Bridge.”
Sydney stuck out her tongue at the blue ranger once more. “Oh come on, you know something’s there! I mean, Z’s mad at me for no reason!”
Smiling softly, he gave her shoulder a gentle squeeze. “Promise me you won’t do too much meddling.”
There was a silence.
“Syd?” He prompted.
“Fine,” Syd pouted. “I promise I won’t do too much meddling.”
“Good,” Sky kissed the pink ranger’s forehead before standing up. “I’m going to go take a shower.”
And as he headed towards his bathroom, his clothes in hand, Sydney’s voice stopped him. “Sky?”
He turned and faced her. “Yeah?”
“Can we please lock them in a closet?”
Snow fell gently around him, coating everywhere around him with cold wet snowflakes. The snow crunched beneath his feet as he walked down the empty pathway through the park. His breath formed little misty clouds and he brought his hands to his mouth and blew into them, momentarily warming his fingers.
It had been a long eventful day – and he was beginning to feel the weariness that he felt earlier in the day come back to him. But for the first time, Bridge could honestly say that he was content with his life. Never had he imagined that he would be able to touch – to feel and experience something without being overloaded with emotions.
He was about to touch the empty park bench and feel the rough ridges of the wood. He was able to pick up an empty pop can that someone had left on the ground and throw it into the recycling trash can without seeing the nameless person that had drunk it before he had touched it.
He was free but at the same time, he wasn’t. The green ranger knew that he would never be completely normal, but now, at least he had a chance to fit into society better than he had before.
By the time Bridge got back to the Academy, most of the cadets and staff had already gone to bed. There were a few people milling about as he made his way down the hallway. He passed the Command Center and spotted Kat and waved as he continued toward his bedroom.
He entered and wasn’t the least bit surprised to see Sydney perched on Sky’s bed and leaning against the blue ranger’s pillows with a magazine in her hands. Over the past few months, he had grown used to seeing the pink ranger in his bedroom – she was there all the time. Sometimes he found it amusing to find Syd sitting on Sky’s bed – she was usually the only spot of pink in a room of green and blue.
“Hi Bridgey!” The pink ranger greeted, looking up from her magazine. “Are you okay? How was your exploration?”
“It went fine,” he replied honestly. “It was really different… refreshing.”
“Oh,” Sydney paused, looking at him expectantly waiting to hear more. Sky exited the bathroom a few moments later, a fluffy blue towel wrapped around his neck. “Hey Bridge,” Sky smiled, seeing the green ranger. “How are you feeling?”
“Tired.” Bridge headed over to his closet and pulled out his comfiest pajamas. “I’m going to take a shower and then we’ll talk after, okay guys?”
His friends nodded and he turned towards his bathroom, very much looking forward to a nice, long and hot shower.
Jack lounged around on the yellow ranger’s bed as he watched Z pace back and forth. His expression turned to one of amusement and he couldn’t help but laugh. “Still jealous?”
Z stopped pacing and pinned the red ranger with a glare. “NO!”
“Sure you’re not.”
She glared at him for a minute before sighing and sitting down at the edge of her bed and grabbing her doll and hugging it tight to her chest. Seeing the expression on the yellow ranger’s face made Jack sit up from his comfortable lazy position to a position that made him look like he was focusing his attention solely on Z – which he was. “What’s wrong?”
She stared at him and he suddenly knew.
“You’re scared,” he stated simply. He opened his arms. “Come here.” Still holding onto Jenna, she fell into Jack’s arms, feeling herself relax more than she had for the last week. This felt familiar, she felt comfortable. “Why are you so afraid?”
Only with Jack was she able to admit her feelings. “I don’t know,” she replied.
“It’s obvious that Bridge has feelings for you.”
“Are you sure?”
“’Course I’m sure,” she could feel the vibrations rippling through his chest as Jack chuckled. “The only person, who hasn’t noticed, is you.”
“Really?” Z looked up into Jack’s face, wondering why her heart had suddenly started beating rapidly. “How do you know?”
“Bridge isn’t exactly Mr. Mysterious,” Jack stated. “He doesn’t know it but most of the time he wears his heart on his sleeve. The way he looks at you says everything.”
“No,” he interrupted. “Z, its time to stop denying what you feel because despite what you say, the look on your face says it all, you just have to admit to yourself your true feelings.”
“I don’t want him to leave,” she sniffed. “Everybody always leaves after awhile.”
“Who says Bridge is going to leave? They’ve done a good job with sticking with us, don’t you think?”
Z wiped a stray tear from her eye and sniffed. Grudgingly, she admitted to herself that Jack was right. Bridge, Syd and Sky had stuck with them for awhile now. And if she was really honest with herself, she did rely on their friendship. Bridge made her laugh, she and Syd were almost as close as sisters and with Sky - she felt like she had another brother looking out for her well-being.
“I guess you’re right,” she mumbled.
“And they aren’t going to leave.”
“And I know I can trust them.”
“And… and… and… I like…”
“I’m waiting.” Jack’s voice sounded impatient.
“And… I like… I like… I like Bridge.”
“What?” Jack suddenly seemed deaf.
“I like Bridge.”
“What did you say?”
“I like Bridge.”
“Say it louder, I can’t hear you very well.”
Z sat up and faced Jack with an annoyed look on her face. “I like Bridge, okay!”
Jack grinned. “Took you long enough to admit it,” the red ranger stood up and headed for the doors of her bedroom. “Now, the question is, what are you going to do about it? Night Z!” Whistling, Jack turned and headed out, leaving Z to think things over.
“You know,” Syd remarked as she leaned against Sky’s pillows, sipping her hot chocolate. “We haven’t done this in awhile.”
“Done what?” Sky asked, leaning against the wall at the edge of his bed as he munched on some baby carrots, the SPD Handbook in his hand.
“Hang out together,” the pink ranger answered. “Just the three of us. The past three days that we’ve been together sorta felt like old times, don’t you think?”
“It sure did,” Bridge replied quietly. He looked up from his own mug of hot chocolate and faced the two people he considered to be his family. “You guys know that you’re the best friends I’ve ever had, right?”
“Of course we know, Bridgey!” Sydney grinned. “We aren’t going to forget that fact anytime soon.”
“And you guys know how grateful and thankful I am that you’ve helped me somewhat control my powers?”
“It was nothing,” Sky added.
“You guys are the best,” Bridge grinned. He stared at the blue and pink rangers for a moment, feeling grateful and happy to have found friends like them. He held their gazes and felt comforted by the fact that they would always stand by him no matter what.
There was a comfortable silence as the three of them resumed to what they were doing. Sky went back to reading his SPD Handbook; Syd went back to sipping her hot chocolate and flipping through her magazine, while he finished his own drink.
“So Bridge, are you planning to ask Z out on a date anytime soon?”
Syd’s sudden question startled the green ranger and he began to choke as he tried to swallow his drink. Sky leapt from his position and headed over to his side of the room and began thumping on his back as he gasped.
“Way to go, Syd,” the blue ranger reprimanded. “You just can’t leave it alone, can you?”
The pink ranger shrugged, looking concerned. “I didn’t mean to make him choke.”
As his coughing died down, Bridge took a large gulp of water from the bottle that Sky handed him. “Thanks Sky,” he gasped. Once his coughing fit died down, he glanced at the pink ranger. Syd was looking at him with a mischievous grin on her face. The green ranger inwardly groaned. His best friend was playing matchmaker – he should’ve known.
“I don’t know…” he replied slowly.
“You can ask her out now – your powers aren’t going to be a problem anymore!” she pressed.
“Syd…” Sky cut in. There was a bit of a warning in his voice.
“What? Bridge deserves to be happy – he’s had a crush on Z for awhile now!”
“You promised that you wouldn’t meddle - “
“Much. I promised that I wouldn’t meddle that much.”
“Still – “
“Guys!” Bridge interrupted. The green ranger sighed as both the blue and pink rangers looked at him. “Syd, what makes you think Z would go for someone like me anyway? I’ve never dated anyone before.”
“What makes you think Z won’t go for someone like you?” The pink ranger countered.
“I don’t know…” Bridge trailed off. “I’ve never asked a girl out before.”
“Tell you what,” Syd cut in. “Let’s double date. The Winter Carnival has been in town for a few days now, how about we go there tomorrow? You, Z, me and Sky. What do you say?”
Bridge thought it over and then nodded. “Alright, sounds like a plan… I guess.”
“YES!” Syd squealed.
Bridge felt his heart flutter as Syd began spouting off details about the carnival and the plans for the next day. The green ranger took a deep breath and forced himself to relax – it wasn’t that big of a deal, right? Could a double date be considered a hangout? A casual hangout? As he listened to Syd’s excited chatter, Bridge couldn’t help but feel anxiety build up within him.
Z sat quietly on her bed, brushing her hair as she waited for Syd to come back to their room. She felt like such an idiot. Her earlier fight with the pink ranger had happened because of her jealousy and she knew it.
The yellow ranger wasn’t used to feeling jealous. She wasn’t used to admitting that she was wrong. And she definitely wasn’t used to having deep feelings for a person. Z placed the brush that she was holding down onto her nightstand and picked up her doll and hugged it tight to her chest. Syd would forgive her, she knew that – the pink ranger never stayed mad for too long.
The doors of her bedroom slid open and there stood the pink ranger herself. Syd stepped over the threshold and stopped once she saw the yellow ranger waiting for her. They stared at each other for a moment before Syd spoke. “So… am I allowed to come in, or do you need some more time to cool off? ‘Cause if you need more time to cool off, I can always spend the night in Sky’s room.”
“No,” Z replied, feeling a little bit more than guilty. “I’m sorry! I didn’t mean to yell at you – are we still friends?”
Grinning, Syd bounced over to her bed and threw her arms around her shoulders. “Of course!”
Now she felt relieved. Z grinned, knowing that all was right with the world again.
“So, why were you so mad at me?”
Well, almost anyway.
Z bit her lip and avoided the pink ranger’s gaze. She glanced down at Jenna and fingered her doll’s tattered dress. She had already admitted it to Jack – what harm would come from telling Syd? “I was jealous,” she muttered.
The yellow ranger was so busy trying to avoid the pink ranger’s gaze that she missed the delighted grin that adorned Syd’s face. Sydney was doing her best to refrain from giggling. “And why were you jealous?”
“Because you were spending a lot of time with Bridge,” Z turned bright red. “And I like Bridge a lot,” she mumbled.
There was a silence and the yellow ranger looked up, wondering why she didn’t get more of a reaction. She instantly felt a little uneasy at the grin that adorned the pink ranger’s face. “Syd?” she asked. “What’s with that look?”
“I was beginning to wonder when you would admit it to yourself,” Syd clasped her hands together and giggled. “It’s nice to see that you aren’t in denial anymore.”
“What?” Z couldn’t believe what she was hearing.
Sydney gave her a bored look. “What do you mean ‘what’? Everyone knew that you had a crush on Bridge, the only person who doesn’t know is Bridge himself.”
“And trust me, Bridge likes you too!”
She stared at her teammate, her heart rate increasing. “Really?”
Sydney just nodded, not giving any other details. “Yep!”
“But…” she trailed off once more. Jack had basically said the same thing. Did she dare believe it? “But…”
“But nothing,” Syd interrupted. “If you ask me, you’ve been dancing around your feelings for too long. It’s about time you admitted your feelings – Bridge already realized his feelings for you, he just couldn’t tell you.”
Her eyes widened. “Why not?”
“I’ll let Bridge tell you,” the pink ranger winked. “Now, what are you doing tomorrow?”
Momentarily startled by the sudden change in conversation, it took Z a minute to answer. “Um, nothing. Since we’re on call, I was just thinking of lounging around. Why?”
“Well, Sky and I are heading to the Winter Carnival tomorrow to spend some time together. Want to come?”
“I don’t think so, Syd. I refuse to be a third wheel around you two.”
“Silly! Bridge is going to be there!”
“Really?” The yellow ranger’s heart began to pound and she couldn’t decipher the feeling. Was she excited? She sort of was… but the feeling was more nervous than excited.
“Yep,” came the pink ranger’s answer.
Z closed her eyes and took a deep breath. “Okay, I’ll go.” And as she listened to Sydney begin to spout of details about the next day, she couldn’t help but feel a sense of dread wash over her.
The snow crunched beneath their feet as they walked along the white covered grounds. It wasn’t very cold out, but it was cold enough for their breaths to form tiny mists of clouds every time they talked. People were milling all over the carnival grounds – long lines were formed at all the rides and games. Smells of sizzling hot dogs and cotton candy as well as hot chocolate filled the air. Sounds of happy laughter were heard as a couple of children ran past them, throwing snowballs at each other.
Sky, Syd, Bridge and Z were at the Annual New Tech City Winter Carnival and they were excited to be there.
Well technically, only one person was truly excited. One person was cold and the other two were too nervous to truly enjoy themselves.
“Oh Sky!” Syd was squealing. The pink ranger waved her arm towards the booth that featured a dart game. There were several large sized bunnies in all sorts of colors hanging to the roof of the booth. “They’re so cute! Can you win me one?”
Bridge and Z were suddenly left alone as Sydney dragged Sky over to where the game was. The green and yellow rangers stood around awkwardly for a minute, watching as the blue ranger began throwing the darts that the booth operator had provided. Glancing out of the corner of her eye, Z saw that Bridge quickly adverted his gaze once he saw that she was looking at him. The yellow ranger felt a grin come to her face as she realized that the green ranger was just as nervous as she was.
“So,” she spoke up, shifting her gaze from the ground to Bridge. “Are you having fun?”
“Yup,” he replied.
An awkward silence ensued when Bridge didn’t say anything else. The yellow ranger wracked her brains trying to come up with something else to say. She bit her lip and looked around, searching for something to say. That was when she noticed that the pink and blue rangers were missing. “Hey!” she exclaimed. “What happened to Syd and Sky?”
Bridge quickly looked over at the dart game. Sky and Syd were no where to be seen. The green ranger narrowed his eyes. Boy, his friends were sneaky. He had a feeling that Sydney had been planning something like this from the start. The pink ranger had been way too cheerful that morning and he had a feeling that Sky had most likely been roped into going along with Sydney’s plan. The green ranger sighed and shook his head. “I don’t think we’re going to find them for awhile. Want to go get some hot chocolate?”
The yellow ranger looked momentarily surprised but quickly accepted. “Sure, let’s go.”
They headed towards the small restaurant that was located not to far from the darts game. Upon entering, a waitress greeted them and they were immediately seated in the corner. They gave their orders and once the waitress left, the awkward silence between them suddenly came back.
After about five minutes, Z decided to make the first move. She wasn’t usually the ‘beat around the bush’ type of person. She liked things to be straight to the point. She had been in denial about her feelings for Bridge for the last few weeks and she had just finally admitted it to herself. She really didn’t feel dealing with awkward silences now. Jack had told her Bridge liked her. Syd did too. And Caleb mentioned it as well.
The yellow ranger sat up straighter and looked at Bridge, her heart pounding a mile a minute. “Bridge, I have something to tell you.”
The green ranger looked startled but gave her his complete attention. “Okay.”
“Try not to interrupt me, okay? ‘Cause I’ve never done this before and for awhile there this whole thing had me so confused and scared that I didn’t know what to do. I was so confused and jealous that I ended up blowing up at Syd, which I really didn’t mean to do. I mean, you and Syd are best friends, so I don’t know why I was jealous in the first place…” Z knew she was babbling now and she immediately stopped. She took a deep breath to calm her nerves. “Bridge,” she said as calmly as she could. “I like you. A lot. As in, more than a friend. Like the way Syd likes Sky.”
The green ranger was quiet for a minute and then his face split into the widest smile she had ever seen. “I feel the same way,” he told her.
She stared, hardly daring to believe it. “Really? I mean – Jack said you did, and so did Syd but –”
“I feel the same way,” Bridge repeated calmly.
“Wow,” she said. They fell silent as they looked at one another. “So, what now?” the yellow ranger asked.
Bridge had a strange look in his eyes. Slowly, he took off his leather gloves and held out his left hand to her. “Can I hold your hand?” he asked softly.
Her eyes widened. “But Bridge, your powers! What if –“
“Just trust me.”
She took in a sharp breath. There was that word again. Trust. Looking at Bridge, she saw the sincere look in his eyes and felt herself slowly relax and a small smile came to her face. She trusted Bridge. He wouldn’t hurt her. Slowly, she extended her right hand and entwined her fingers with his.
Z waited, but no moans or gasps came from Bridge. Instead, the green ranger looked strangely calm. She was even more startled when he said, “Your hand is nice and soft. Its how I always imagined it would be.”
“Bridge, why aren’t your powers acting up?”
“It’s a long story,” the green ranger replied and she felt her face grow hot as Bridge moved closer. “I promise I’ll tell you later.”
Without even realizing it, Z leaned her face closer to the green ranger’s. She was feeling safer than she had ever felt before. She reveled in the warmth she felt radiating from Bridge’s body as he wrapped his arm around her waist. And it was right there, in their secluded corner in the café, she received the gentlest yet loving kiss of her life.
“Look! They’re going off together!” Syd tugged on Sky’s arm as they spied around a booth. The pink ranger was grinning with delight. “I am brilliant.”
“Syd, can we go inside somewhere? I’m cold.”
“I should play match maker more often!”
“I think I’m getting sick.”
“They are so perfect for each other!” Syd continued to watch Z and Bridge’s retreating backs as their teammates headed towards the small café located in the middle of the grounds.
“Seriously, Syd. I’m not getting any warmer just standing here.”
“I wonder what they’re going to talk about…”
“I’m going to become an icicle any minute now,” Sky muttered. “How would you like a boyfriend popsicle?”
“Oh, I hope Bridge tells her how he feels!” The pink ranger clasped her hands together. “And to think, they might get together because we ditched them so they could be alone.”
The pink ranger was pulled out of her thoughts and she looked at her boyfriend. “What?” She then noticed that Sky’s cheeks and ears were red and that the blue ranger was shivering, while still holding the large stuffed bunny that he had won her. “Oh baby, I’m so sorry!” Syd cooed as she immediately latched onto Sky’s arm and began dragging him to the nearest restaurant so they could warm up. She had forgotten how much Sky hated the cold. “Let’s get you somewhere warm.”
“You owe me,” Sky spoke up.
“I know, sweetie.” Sydney grinned up at Sky, her eyes showing how grateful she really was. She knew she had been a real pain in the neck the last couple of days, but the blue ranger had never complained. He just went along with whatever she wanted. “I promise,” she winked. “I’ll do whatever you want, anytime you want.”
“I’m going to hold you to that.”
As soon as the boys had dropped them off at their room for the night and the doors had shut tight behind them, Syd had immediately dragged her over to her bed and pounced. “Okay, tell me everything!”
“What?” Z looked at her roommate like she was crazy.
“What? What do you mean ‘what’? Tell me what happened with Bridge! Sky and I leave you and the next time we see you, you guys are holding hands! I was dying to ask you guys what happened between you during dinner but Sky kept elbowing me to keep me quiet,” Syd was bouncing up and down with excitement. “Tell me, are you guys dating now? Did you finally tell him how you felt? Did he tell you how he felt?”
Z couldn’t help it. A large smile came to her face and she nodded. The yellow ranger laughed out loud as the pink ranger gave a loud squeal. “Oh, I knew it! I knew if we left you guys alone something might happen! Sky had his doubts but then he’s a man and what do men know about anything? Oh, I’m so happy for you guys!”
The two roommates talked for another hour – Syd asking the questions and Z providing the details. And when the two ended their conversation and she had decided to head to bed, the yellow ranger couldn’t help but reach out for the large sized giraffe that Bridge had won for her that afternoon at the carnival. She hugged the stuffed animal to her chest and fell asleep with a large smile on her face.
Up on the roof of the SPD Academy, Giovanni stood while the rest of the city slept. The city looked peaceful and the glistening snow made it look beautiful. He enjoyed nights like this, where everything was silent and he was left alone with his solitude. He brought his hands together and cracked his knuckles as he took in a deep breath of fresh air.
Thanks to Piggy, he was able to get into the Academy using the blue prints that the alien had given him. He had to admit, Elizabeth and Jack had certainly done well for themselves. Silent as always, he had been able to maneuver through the secret pathways in the ceiling and looking through the vents, he had been able to see the insides of each their rooms. He now knew exactly where everyone was located; all he had to do now was to develop a strategy and extract his revenge.
Turning away from the view of the city, Giovanni turned and headed for the opened vent that was located right next to the rooftop doors. He crawled through the small space as quietly as he could. Even though it was late at night, there were still people in the Academy that were awake. Like the pink and blue rangers, for example. Giovanni paused, watching as Sky and Sydney interacted with each other. He was directly above the common room and he could plainly see the two teammates sitting on the couch in front of the television making out.
He rolled his eyes and continued on. He passed Keegan’s room and paused to observe what he was doing. Jack and Keegan were sitting on Keegan’s bed, while Caleb was sitting on Ian’s bed and the three looked to be in deep conversation. Knowing that he would never be able to hear their conversation, Giovanni continued on until he reached his destination.
He entered the secret underground base with perfect silence. He headed over to the darkest corner of the large room and settled down to sleep. He was close… so close… revenge was just within his grasp. He fell asleep dreaming of what was to come and how it would feel once everyone was dead.
Well, another chapter done and we’re now a chapter closer to the ending. Just out of curiosity, I’d like to see what everyone thinks will happen with Giovanni (grins). So be sure to leave it in the review! Thanks for sticking with me everybody!
