Double-Cross My Heart - Chapter 19Double-Cross My Heart - Chapter 19 by BrandonHill
Counting our protracted bath -It is a good thing that our skin does not prune from prolonged immersion-, it took Derek and I a full hour and a half after Deb’s communiqué to exit the hotel room.
To be more specific, I was the one who first emerged in that time frame, and to more than a couple of gazes and emotions that ranged from playfully shrewd to mildly annoyed. Nevertheless, it turned out that my “distraction” had provided more than enough time for the clan to pack up and prepare for a rapid departure, leaving all present with time to occupy themselves with idle chitchat and a few smoking sessions, but with everyone standing conspicuously about Lyman’s now derelict trailer.
“The boss gonna be long?” Wadih asked as he came to my side. He sounded understandably anxious; he was just as eager to get back on the road as

This was where my memories ended.
I opened my eyes. I was back in Father’s sitting room. Father was no longer kneeling before me, but instead, was seated in his own chair opposite me. I glanced at my goblet to find the blood congealed and long cold. His trek through the experience of my mission must have been lengthy.
My gaze then fell back upon Father. God, he seemed so old!
And for the first time in my life, I could sense his thoughts. I shuddered with the sudden realization of something that I thought I’d never sense. Such depth and extent of memory, it was like staring into an endless library. But his emotions wrenched me. So much shame and anger ... but not directed at me. Still, it was all I needed to know. I could have done what he did to me, explore the corridors of his mind, saw the truth f

Lyman took his leave as quickly as he arrived, knowing that we would not be far behind. I, however, had been left quite shaken from the suddenness of events. Derek and I had been in physical contact all of the previous evening and throughout the day as we slept, and with the exception of the time we’d shared our mutual dark pages of the past, I had never know him to have been so calm. So serene were his thoughts, in fact, that I believe that if I had asked him to finish the deed he began with me before his courage fell, he would have, in spite of his discomfort, just to make me happy. But the second we heard Lyman’s words, it shattered that admittedly fragile peace as if it were no more substantial than any thin pane of glass. And it was agony for us both. Though he maintained his outward decorum, Derek’s heart was now anything but calm. At Lyman’s devastating words, my mind swallowed a torren
FBnCC: I See the Light(Christina is standing on a balcony; as the sun sinks lower on the horizon, she admires the atmosphere, for she has never seen any warm colors, in her life)FBnCC: I See the Light by Lizlovestoons12
Christina: All those days, watching from the windows,
All those years, outside, looking in,
All that time, never even knowing
Just how blind I've been.
Now I'm here, blinking in the starlight,
Now I'm here, suddenly, I see,
Standing here, it's oh, so clear,
I'm where I'm meant to be.
And at last, I see the light, and it's like the fog has lifted,
And at last, I see the light, and it's like the sky is new,
And it's warm, and real, and bright, and the world has somehow shifted...
All at once, everything looks different, now that I see you.
Chum-Chum: (to Man-Arctica) Who is she singing about?
M.A.: Me, obviously; I mean, who else would she love?
Fanboy: Um, I think I know who! (points up to the balcony, and sure enough, the Global Warmer is seen slowly walking up to Christina with a warm smile on his face)

Christina: (as Global Warmer enters the room) Global?
G.W.: Yes, Christina?
Christina: There's something I have been meaning to tell you. :iconumplz:
G.W.: Is it something nice? (floats in the air and puts a hand on Christina's shoulder)
Christina: Well, you can say that.
G.W.: Then it can wait. (floats down and walks to the front door)
Christina: It can, (stands from the chair) but for how long?
G.W.: Forever and ever.
Christina: (sighs) Forever and ever, is a very long time, you.
G.W.: (chuckles) Forever isn't long at all, when I'm with you! (vanishes in a ball of fire) (Christina follows his voice, and ends up outside)
I wanna call your name, forever,
And you will always answer, forever.
And both of us will be,
Forever, you and me,
Forever and ever. (fli
Lizzie's Sad Song (Total Eclipse of the Heart)(interior: Makin' Bacon; night. It's Valencrisp's Day, but Lizzie is left all alone at the dance, with nobody, yet. Ogo approaches her with a look of concern, for he has never seen Lizzie like this.)Lizzie's Sad Song (Total Eclipse of the Heart) by Lizlovestoons12
Lizzie: Evening, Ogo.
Ogo: What's troubling you?
Lizzie: It's almost 8:00, and Robot and Monster haven't shown up, yet!
Ogo: Oh, maybe they're late?
Lizzie: Maybe, but I have some doubts that they'll even show up.
Ogo: Don't be a silly-willy, Lizzie; (puts an arm around her) Robot and Monster always show up at a party! But, if you want some advice?
Lizzie: What is it?
Ogo: (singing) Turn around.
Lizzie: (singing) Every now and then, I get a little bit lonely, and he's never comin' 'round.
Ogo: Turn around.
Lizzie: Every now and then, I get a little bit tired of listening to the sound of my tears. (tears up, slightly)
Ogo: Turn around. (hands her a tissue)
Lizzie: (dries her eyes) Every now and then, I get a little bit nervous that the best of all the times have
