Singing and laughing
Post by Orchestra the Mighty on Jul 21, 2007, 9:15pm

The sound of faint singing can be heard coming from the lower levels of the bus. Most of the lyrics seem to be pretty nonsensical:

All along I was searching for my Lenore
In the words of Mr. Edgar Allan Poe
Now I'm sober and "Nevermore"
Will the Raven come to bother me at home…


Re: Singing and laughing
Post by Kelly Alecia "Star Girl" Lisa on Jul 21, 2007, 9:20pm

The first thought that pops into my head is the fact that I never have and never will like that song. The singing is curious enough to make me head down to the lower seating. I mean… who on the bus sings out loud but me?

Of course, when I get there, I realise that I recognise that voice. I would never forget it. I stop in my tracks, frozen in shock.

*Kidd*

"Calling you, calling you home
You… calling you, calling you home…oh…crap. Finally. You're here." I look at her and laugh.

"Knock that off, this shouldn't come as shock to you anymore."

I’m pretty sure I should be kind of incredulous. At least a little. I mean, people don’t just pop up from having been dead, no matter how much I might wish they did. And if I stopped a moment to really consider it, I’d realise that she had been in heaven, somewhere where she was far happier than she could ever be here, and really, she shouldn’t be here at all, and I should be wondering how it’s possible before even considering the ramifications of –

I run over to her and grab onto her in a hug.

- obviously, I’m not stopping for that moment to consider it. I can’t. It’s Kidd. I can’t think past that right now.

"Knock this off too, people will start spreading nasty rumors about the two of us. Always groping me…"


Re: Singing and laughing
Post by Kelly Alecia "Star Girl" Lisa on Jul 21, 2007, 9:36pm

I let her go with a sheepish look.

"Sorry."

I’m not going to ask ‘why’, and I'm not going to ask 'how', because if I do, she'll fade away, and this won't be real, and I can't handle that right now.

I latch onto her again.

Well, that lasted….


Re: Singing and laughing
Post by Orchestra the Mighty on Jul 21, 2007, 9:40pm

"You've made a mess of things again…" I say sadly, but making it known that I will not cry.


Re: Singing and laughing
Post by Kelly Alecia "Star Girl" Lisa on Jul 21, 2007, 9:42pm

I don’t have that fortitude. When I pull away – not by much, but enough that I can look at her – I am crying, but not out of sadness.

"I have?"

I have. But like I noted, I’m not big on being able to think properly right now.


Re: Singing and laughing
Post by Orchestra the Mighty on Jul 21, 2007, 9:44pm

"Oh yeah, big mess of it all." I reply. "But I'm not here to talk about that, or how you're supposed to fix it all."


Re: Singing and laughing
Post by Kelly Alecia "Star Girl" Lisa on Jul 21, 2007, 9:45pm

"You aren’t?"

I let go entirely and sit on one of the seats – mostly because I think my knees are going to give way if I don’t.

"What are you here for?" I shake my head right after saying it. "It doesn’t matter what you’re here for! What matters is that you’re here!"


Re: Singing and laughing
Post by Orchestra the Mighty on Jul 21, 2007, 9:50pm

"Sort of."

A sigh escapes my lips. She never gets it.

"I'm here to talk to you, about whatever you want."


Re: Singing and laughing
Post by Kelly Alecia "Star Girl" Lisa on Jul 21, 2007, 9:51pm

"Whatever I want?"

I look to the side before looking back at her. There's something I've needed to know for a long time. … don't do it. Don't do it. Don't.

"I need to know why you stayed."

"I was happier here than I was in Japan. My dad was a wreck, even with me back he was a wreck…and being a member of the Big Hero Six was a full-time job. I couldn't have fun."


Re: Singing and laughing
Post by Kelly Alecia "Star Girl" Lisa on Jul 21, 2007, 9:56pm

I bow my head slightly, and when one of the tears drops into my lap, I realise that they're still coming. I try to wipe them away, but it seems a little futile.

"Oh, Kidd…. I'm so sorry."


Re: Singing and laughing
Post by Orchestra the Mighty on Jul 21, 2007, 10:03pm

"You don't need to apologize." She does this way too much.

"But let's talk. About anything you want…things that aren't about me I'd prefer."


Re: Singing and laughing
Post by Kelly Alecia "Star Girl" Lisa on Jul 21, 2007, 10:08pm

"I do need to. But if you don't want me to, I won't."

I pause and let as much of a moment pass as I can without speaking. A beat doesn't even pass.

"You were the best friend I ever had. You know that, right? I'm sorry, something that isn't about you…. I'm not exactly a fountain of good news lately, Kidd," I giggle quietly.

Post by Orchestra the Mighty on Jul 21, 2007, 10:09pm

"It doesn't matter. Let me hear it."


Re: Singing and laughing
Post by Kelly Alecia "Star Girl" Lisa on Jul 21, 2007, 10:11pm

"I died. Again. I'm not really sure what happened with that. Everyone tells me that I did - they keep on telling me that things were breaking apart after that - but I don't remember dying. I just remember being here… then… you and my parents, and a warmth that I didn't want to go away from… and then waking up in a cold dark morgue drawer that I had to hit my way out of," I say, holding out my bandaged hand.

"So I guess I must have."


Re: Singing and laughing
Post by Orchestra the Mighty on Jul 21, 2007, 10:17pm

I stroke her hair gently.

"Yeah, I saw all of that. Dillon did you worse than any villain ever did…"


Re: Singing and laughing
Post by Kelly Alecia "Star Girl" Lisa on Jul 21, 2007, 10:18pm

I cock my head to one side, more confused than usual.

"Dillon… bawhahuh?"


Re: Singing and laughing
Post by Orchestra the Mighty on Jul 21, 2007, 10:20pm

"Shhh…"

I explain to her everything that happened.

"…but it wasn't his fault, Kelly. Something was wrong with him, the both of you."


Re: Singing and laughing
Post by Kelly Alecia "Star Girl" Lisa on Jul 21, 2007, 10:23pm

"Oh. Oh!"

I get what she's saying. I do, but that hurt look won't fade.

"Oh, no, of course, there had to be! He would never do something like that unless something was terribly wrong, right?"


Re: Singing and laughing
Post by Orchestra the Mighty on Jul 21, 2007, 10:25pm

"It was awful." a few tears leave my eyes. "You were both being so awful to each other. The way he was hitting you, but what you said to him…that was the worse part Kelly."


Re: Singing and laughing
Post by Kelly Alecia "Star Girl" Lisa on Jul 21, 2007, 10:27pm

I have to wonder, of course, but the first thing I do is wipe the tears from her eyes.

"What- what was I saying?"


Re: Singing and laughing
Post by Orchestra the Mighty on Jul 21, 2007, 10:30pm

It's hard for me to do, but I repeat most of the things she said to him perfectly from memory.


Re: Singing and laughing
Post by Kelly Alecia "Star Girl" Lisa on Jul 21, 2007, 10:32pm

"Oh."

The tears are still coming, but for completely different reasons than before.

"I didn't realise I could be like that. I can't believe I put him through that."


Re: Singing and laughing
Post by Orchestra the Mighty on Jul 21, 2007, 10:37pm

"Kelly, let's not kid ourselves, you held a grudge against Meghan for a while, we both know you could be a bit mean, but yeah, that was bad." I flick her gently on the forehead.

"But don't you dare go an do something stupid to "fix" this, he's better off for it."


Re: Singing and laughing
Post by Kelly Alecia "Star Girl" Lisa on Jul 21, 2007, 10:39pm

"I don't think there's anything that I could possibly do to fix this… it's- I can't even describe how awful those things were, but-"

I shake my head vehemently, the tears spreading outwards with each shake.

"How could he be better off thinking that he killed someone?"


Re: Singing and laughing
Post by Orchestra the Mighty on Jul 21, 2007, 10:48pm

"Well for one, he's reasoned it out to be a nightmare, and rightly so, but that's not what I meant. He doesn't think you feel the way same about him he feels about you, so it's helped him function a bit better rather than being a love-lorn-loon."


Re: Singing and laughing
Post by Kelly Alecia "Star Girl" Lisa on Jul 21, 2007, 10:53pm

"That's true," I say, placing my head in my hands.

"I don't know why he got that impression in the first place. The worst part is… if things had been different, I don't know, maybe it could have been the case."


Re: Singing and laughing
Post by Orchestra the Mighty on Jul 21, 2007, 10:58pm

"They aren't though, so don't waste time worrying about that. Too be honest I'm only here because…"

It sort of hurts to admit I lied to her but she needs to know the truth.

"…when you "died" and started, y'know, coming up and then went back down, I got kind of sad."


Re: Singing and laughing
Post by Kelly Alecia "Star Girl" Lisa on Jul 21, 2007, 11:03pm

I gasp quietly.

"You can do that?"

I latch onto her again.

"Thank you, thank you, thank you, you don't know how much it means that you came down! I got really sad too because I saw you and mum and dad and then I got pulled back down into this world where people are mean and they lie and hurt other people and even Erebus was here hurting Alexander and they said that he killed me too but he couldn't have because I was up with you guys when that happened and then I missed you all when I came back down and thank you, thank you!"

Post by Orchestra the Mighty on Jul 21, 2007, 11:06pm

"Uhhh…Kelly, no. I can't do this actually. It's all very complicated and has more to do with you than it does me."


Re: Singing and laughing
Post by Kelly Alecia "Star Girl" Lisa on Jul 21, 2007, 11:09pm

"Oh."

I scrunch my nose up slightly, thinking about it, but already realising that I probably won't get it.

"This is probably one of those things that I'm best off not thinking about, or I'll just get really confused, isn't it?"


Re: Singing and laughing
Post by Orchestra the Mighty on Jul 21, 2007, 11:10pm

"Not as confusing as what I'm about to ask you: Why haven't you done your hair in a while?"


Re: Singing and laughing
Post by Kelly Alecia "Star Girl" Lisa on Jul 21, 2007, 11:12pm

I giggle slightly and flick it back with a hand.

"We've been on the run from SHIELD. I haven't had much of a chance."

My eyes widen and I hop up from my seat.

"Oh, but it does this now when I use too much of my power!"

I absorb some light from the surrounding area, doing it nice and slowly so that it doesn't hurt, and the hair turns silver. First it just turns silver in streaks, but it spreads across the whole head, and soon all of the hair is a shiny, silver colour.

"I haven't really had a chance. Well, he made me stay in the medbay for nearly a week after we fought the Phalanx and I kept on bleeding internally, but I didn't think to ask him, really."

I try to get a sparkle of colour to spread out from my fingers, but nothing really comes out.

"They're just kind of… a lot less than they used to be. More limited, too. Like, sometimes they hurt to use, now. Absorbing light and stuff."


Re: Singing and laughing

I give her a hug.

"I'd give you all my crazy powers if I could."

"I wouldn't be able to handle them," I say, hugging her back. "Only Kidd Taki can do that.

I pause to think about that for a moemnt.

"Kidd… things aren't going well here, and I'm… well, I just came back from the dead and punched my way out of a morgue drawer after waking up naked in there, and then hiding in the back of an alley until some of the Hellions found me. My health can't get much worse." I look at her through wide, pleading eyes with tears still coming out of the corners.

"I need you here." I shut the eyes for a moment, and shake my head. "But that's not what's important…. If it's going to hurt you in anyway - if it's going to be bad for you in anyway, then you shouldn't stay."

I squeeze her tight.

"Let me just have at least one more moment."


Re: Singing and laughing
Post by Orchestra the Mighty on Jul 22, 2007, 12:51am

Re: Singing and laughing
Post by Kelly Alecia "Star Girl" Lisa on Jul 22, 2007, 12:57am

"It isn’t easy right now, Kidd," I say, holding on all the tighter because of the fading. "It’s killing me right now. It’s like… I only got a few moments with you before you got yanked away. But if you have to go, then you should go."

I drop my head onto her shoulder.

"I can’t, I shouldn’t, and I won’t stop you. If you have to go, though, I need to tell you that I love you, and you’re the best friend I ever had. More than that, you’re my sister, and I couldn’t ask for a better one…."


Re: Singing and laughing
Post by Orchestra the Mighty on Jul 22, 2007, 1:07am

"You tell me that too much, and it's just going to suck when I leave, honey…" I say, resting my cheek on her head.

"We'll be fine until then though…"

By the door you said you had to go
Couldn't help me anymore
This I saw coming, long before
So I kept on staring out the window

I continue singing.


Re: Singing and laughing
Post by Kelly Alecia "Star Girl" Lisa on Jul 22, 2007, 1:11am

"You’re wrong. I don’t tell you that enough,” I tell her quietly, joining in singing, despite the fact that I don’t like the song. It doesn’t matter right now.

"I was 'bout to say, you sure you weren't lookin at someone else?"

Now she's relaxed

I sigh and go back to hovering over on the other side of the hallway.

"I think she knows something I don't… not that it would surprise me, really, but I think she knows about all of this. Could do it. Everything here seems to be a kind of wish… it's like Peter Pan." I say quietly to myself.

"It's the same as having wings!" I sing under my breath.

I sigh again.

"I wonder why she doesn't want to."

"That's what I wanna know! Kelly just said all some stuff 'bout being where I need to be, but it don't make sense!"

"It's really very simple," I say, spinning around to face them again. "But no-one will listen to me…."

Re: Kidd's Room

"I'm not crazy… why would you say I'm crazy?" I ask, wearing a bemused expression.

"Rassfrassin…"

"What do you want Kelly?"


Re: Kidd's Room
Post by Kelly Alecia "Star Girl" Lisa on Jul 28, 2007, 1:28pm

"To speak with you, but I can go if you want. You don't seem like you're in the mood."


Re: Kidd's Room
Post by Orchestra the Mighty on Jul 28, 2007, 1:28pm

"Not after speaking to Kalvin, no. But I figure, why not. Talk."


Re: Kidd's Room
Post by Kelly Alecia "Star Girl" Lisa on Jul 28, 2007, 1:40pm

"You… spoke with Kalvin? But he's in space!"


Re: Kidd's Room

"That doesn't matter."


Re: Kidd's Room

"What, that he's in space? But- but- it's impossible!"


Re: Kidd's Room

"Say that again and I leave."


Re: Kidd's Room
Post by Kelly Alecia "Star Girl" Lisa on Jul 28, 2007, 1:43pm

"I'm sorry…. don't do that. Please?"

That's… strange. Wouldn't she be happy after seeing Kalvin? She told me that she loved him - and he said the same. So why would she be this upset after that?


Re: Kidd's Room
Post by Orchestra the Mighty on Jul 28, 2007, 1:43pm

"I'm going to leave soon. I have too."


Re: Kidd's Room
Post by Kelly Alecia "Star Girl" Lisa on Jul 28, 2007, 1:44pm

"I know. I get that. Can I- can I come in? Or… could we go up to the roof or something?"


Re: Kidd's Room
Post by Orchestra the Mighty on Jul 28, 2007, 1:46pm

"You can come in." I say, passing through the door behind me.


Re: Kidd's Room
Post by Kelly Alecia "Star Girl" Lisa on Jul 28, 2007, 1:48pm

I open the door and walk in.

"So, I know that you’re going soon. It felt like this was the last chance I had to see you."

I sigh and bow my head slightly.

"What’s it like? Where you’re going?"


Re: Kidd's Room
Post by Orchestra the Mighty on Jul 28, 2007, 1:48pm

"I'm not telling you." I sigh. "You'll find out…eventually…"


Re: Kidd's Room
Post by Kelly Alecia "Star Girl" Lisa on Jul 28, 2007, 1:50pm

"Tease," I smile. "That’s not fair!"

I think I saw it, but I can’t be sure. I guess I won’t know… unless…

"I wish we could go get some ice cream or something. Do you remember that little parlour in NYC we used to go to all the time?"


Re: Kidd's Room
Post by Orchestra the Mighty on Jul 28, 2007, 1:52pm

"Vaguely. You forget a lot of things when you go up there."


Re: Kidd's Room
Post by Kelly Alecia "Star Girl" Lisa on Jul 28, 2007, 1:54pm

"Vaguely? That’s a shame. It was this lovely little place run by…."

I trail off and the smile fades again.

"I’m not going to see you again, am I? Until…."


Re: Kidd's Room

"You die. I mean, you might even go to Heaven…here's hoping though."


Re: Kidd's Room
Post by Kelly Alecia "Star Girl" Lisa on Jul 28, 2007, 1:57pm

"Might even… you weren’t?" I half shout it. If she wasn’t… I can’t think of anything that would be less fair than that.


Re: Kidd's Room

"Calm down."


Re: Kidd's Room
Post by Kelly Alecia "Star Girl" Lisa on Jul 28, 2007, 2:00pm

I bring my voice down, but… still….

"Were you?"


Re: Kidd's Room
Post by Orchestra the Mighty on Jul 28, 2007, 2:01pm

I stick my tongue out.

"That's for me to know and to find out."


Re: Kidd's Room
Post by Kelly Alecia "Star Girl" Lisa on Jul 28, 2007, 2:03pm

I smile a little wanly.

"You could just tell me, you know. I don’t know why you wouldn’t. I just… well, there's no question about it. Heaven is fair. You have to be there. Which means… you are happy, right? I mean… when you're gone?"


Re: Kidd's Room
Post by Orchestra the Mighty on Jul 28, 2007, 2:04pm

"What's not fair would be me telling you things you shouldn't know. Just wait a few years Kelly."


Re: Kidd's Room
Post by Kelly Alecia "Star Girl" Lisa on Jul 28, 2007, 2:06pm

"A few years is all it’ll take? I can wait a few years… I think. I can."

"D'oh. I don't know know when you're gonna kick the can Kel, I was just tossing that out there."


Re: Kidd's Room
Post by Kelly Alecia "Star Girl" Lisa on Jul 28, 2007, 2:08pm

I smile cheerily.

"Well, you can see why I’d be a little impatient."

Only after saying that do I realise what it sounds like.

"I mean… I don’t mean that the way it came out."


Re: Kidd's Room
Post by Orchestra the Mighty on Jul 28, 2007, 2:09pm

"There's so much more to do here than there is there." I smile. "Enjoy it."


Re: Kidd's Room
Post by Kelly Alecia "Star Girl" Lisa on Jul 28, 2007, 2:11pm

"I’m sure, but…."

I sigh again before hugging her tightly.

"I know you’ve got to go, but I wish so badly you could stay. You were so much fun… and I can’t even show you anything that you’d enjoy or anything because of that stupid SHIELD thing."


Re: Kidd's Room
Post by Orchestra the Mighty on Jul 28, 2007, 2:12pm

"Kelly…I pass through most things, I wouldn't have enjoyed any of it anyway."


Re: Kidd's Room
Post by Kelly Alecia "Star Girl" Lisa on Jul 28, 2007, 2:15pm

"That’s a shame. … You’ve got to go now, haven’t you?"

I hug a little tighter, not wanting to let go. I’m a little surprised by the fact that I’m not passing through, which is reason enough to not let go.

"Take me with you."


Re: Kidd's Room
Post by Orchestra the Mighty on Jul 28, 2007, 2:16pm

"Never." I whimper. "You're gonna have cute babies one day. And you're gonna name one Kidd The Mighty. That's all the first name, just so you know."


Re: Kidd's Room
Post by Kelly Alecia "Star Girl" Lisa on Jul 28, 2007, 2:18pm

"I promise. I still wish you’d take me with you, but… We can’t all have what we want, no matter how hard we want it." I kiss her on the cheek and then squeeze tightly before letting go. I won’t cry. I won’t. I won’t.

"I know you’ve got to go…. I miss you, Kidd."


Re: Kidd's Room
Post by Orchestra the Mighty on Jul 28, 2007, 2:19pm

"Don't. All I ever did was get you into trouble anyways." I smile, as I start floating upwards. A little cheesy, but that's how I want to go out.


Re: Kidd's Room
Post by Kelly Alecia "Star Girl" Lisa on Jul 28, 2007, 2:20pm

"I don’t care, Kidd. I would’ve followed you into hell. G’bye. I love you." I watch her float up, not daring to take my eyes off of her for even a moment.


Re: Kidd's Room
Post by Orchestra the Mighty on Jul 28, 2007, 2:23pm

"Then you would've gotten a helluva tan, kiddo. Peace, love and soul." I giggle, blowing her a kiss and vanishing.


Re: Kidd's Room
Post by Kelly Alecia "Star Girl" Lisa on Jul 28, 2007, 2:26pm

I watch her leave, still telling myself that I won’t cry. I won’t. It’s something that… no.

I fall to my knees after she leaves and start crying… quietly. Very quietly. I don’t want someone coming in, hearing it, whatever. I don’t want it. Why couldn’t she take me with her?
