X.A.N.A. really did it this time...
EARLIER THAT DAY.
Aelita got up to stretch. It ws quite a boring school day at Kadic. The day was over with.It was Saturday too.So half a school day. She texted the gang to meet at a Italian resturant. The gang shows up. She greets them. "This is actually a good place for pizza,Odd might enjoy it." She giggled. "I can read him like a book. He is hungry for pizza."
Odd stepped back. "I am hungry for pizza!"
She nods to the gang. "Told you."
As they ate, Jeremy's laptop went off. He checked it. "X.A.N.A. Attack. Sector 5."
He looked out the window and gasped. He saw a man. Tall, muscluar, and was bald with facial hair. There was something in the possessed man's shirt. Jeremy said to the gang, "X.A.N.A. did it this time. Look out the window."
The gang gasps."X.A.N.A. did get too far."
The man comes in and whips out the pistol from under his shirt as the gang stands up to run. He aims the pistol and commands them to stop running. They did as he said. They turn around. The man fired twice at their Einstien. Jeremy.
"No!" Aelita ran in front of Jeremy taking the shot to the head and the shot at the heart.
"Aelita!" Jeremy was shaken. X.A.N.A. left the man's body.
The gang was speechless then Ulrich snapped out of it and called a hospital. Sirens started up in the distance and it got louder.
AT THE HOSPITAL.
Several hours later...
Jeremy waited. Hands in his lap staring at his feet. "I should of been shot. Not her...not the one I love."
Yumi placed a hand on his shoulder, "She got her courage and will to take your fall. She protected you."
Then the doctor came in.
Ulrich was about to ask then the doctor said, "She has hardly a chance to live. It is rather surprising that she is trying to fight the pain with her rather fragile body. You may so and see if her if you like."
When they walked in the rom, they saw Aelita in the bed asleep. Her chest slowly moving. Jeremy just wanted to leave but he couldn't. He walks up to her slowly. The gang leaves the room so he could be alone.
Tears streamed down his face as he picks up her hand and places it in his hand. He sat in the chair right beside her bed. "I hope you live through this,Aelita..." He kissed her hand softly. It would haunt him forever until he died if she slips from life that night. He gets up then leaves unable to stay any longer. The gang gives him space.
LATER THAT NIGHT.
Jeremy tosses and turns in his bed un able to sleep. In the morning he goes straight to the hospital to aee Aelita starting to get more confidence. He goes to her room and sits there talking to her as if nothing bad happened. Then her heart rate increased a bit and she moved a little. He was waiting to see what will happen next.
Her eyes open instantly. She groans in pain. "Whe-wha?J-Jeremy?" She looked at him trying to sit up she gripped his hand a little. She slipped back down. He held her hand, "Please relax." He kissed her on the lips softly starting to cry softly. "Everything will be alright."
An It Did.
A few weeks later she was back at Kadic taking special classes and therapy until she could be back in normal classes. Jeremy stayed by her side every step of the mile stone. Sissy started to rethink about what she had said and done to Aelita in her friends. She appologiezed to the gang. Aelita and Jeremy forgave her and the gang forgave after a while.
Jeremy and Aelita were alone in the forest sitting under a tree. Aelita was nudged up to Jeremy's side. He stroked her soft pink hair. "Aelita..." He said.
She looks up then is instantly surprised from a deep kiss from him. She returns the kiss. They heard a click of a camera. They parted blushing deeply. It was Milly and Taymia.
