Sequel to My Heart Wants to Kill Me. Sometimes the real you can do things you'd never believe, even when you thought they were gone for good.
My Heart Still Wants To Kill Me
Why do you do this to yourself?
"Do what to myself?"
"I'm not hurting anybody. You're the one-"
How many times do I have to say "I am you" before it gets through your thick helmet?
"I am nothing like you!" Sprx yelled at the top of his lungs, attracting the attention of those around him. Seeing how he was in the middle of Shuggazoom Park, that may have not been the best idea. He sank down on the bench further and further until the crowd lost its curiosity and went on about their day. He stood up and made his way back towards the robot.
But you wish you were.
Sprx stopped dead at that comment. "What makes you think that?"
Because I know the real you; the person you could be if you just stopped acting like a moron for five seconds.
The robot's sliding door closed behind Sprx and he rose to the brain scrambler's level.
See what happens when you think?
"This is thinking? I took the tube too many levels up by mistake. This is just a waste of time."
Not totally. Look who's here.
Sprx turned his attention to Nova, who was looking out the robot's mouth down to the city. Nova turned his way. "What are you doing up here?" She asked.
Sprx heart ached again. "Stop it." He commanded quietly.
Only you can stop it.
"What's that supposed to mean?"
Sprx realized he had been shouting again. He sweat and tried to make up an excuse. "Sorry, I'm thinking about stuff." Okay, not a total lie. He could get out of this as long as she didn't…
"What were you thinking about?"
…ask what was up. So much for that plan. "It's nothing, really." He knew that wouldn't work before he even said it. Nova was too caring to let a team member's problems dwell once she knew about them. She started him down. Sprx sighed and walked up beside Nova, looking out the robot's mouth with her. "I've just been having a bit of an identity crisis."
"You don't have to worry about that." Nova said. "You're the dumb monkey, remember?"
Sprx chuckled. "Yeah, I guess so." He knew she was trying to help, but his heart hurt even more. He couldn't help it. After all, it wasn't easy getting out from between a rock and Nova.
He couldn't even yell at her to go away either. He could never hurt her, and every time Nova even glanced at him, he remembered why.
She smiled at him. His felt like his heart was falling apart, like he was falling apart. It was getting to the point where it was hard to even look at her anymore.
So he didn't. He stared at the floor, depressed. She noticed and put a hand on his shoulder, trying to comfort him. That only made it worse; 10 times worse.
What are you going to do now, Sparky?
Sprx couldn't take it. He felt a tear roll down his cheek as Nova's concern grew and she grew closer to him.
"Sprx…. Are you o-"
Nova stopped suddenly. Before Sprx could try and ask why she had, he realized he couldn't speak either. It took him a moment to figure out why, and when he did his eyes widened.
He was in the middle of a kiss with Nova.
He looked at Nova, surprised by her actions, but noticed that she held the same look of shock on her face. Somehow, he had subconsciously pulled her in. He was ready to pull off and try to apologize, but he couldn't. Nova had her arms around his neck, her tail around his tail, and her eyes closed. Sprx eyes opened wider in surprise for a moment, but then he closed them and returned the embrace.
The two slowly broke off from one another. They stared at each other for a moment, in shock as to what had just happened. But that was okay. Sprx could have stared at her forever.
Because it didn't hurt anymore.
A/N: Done! Yay!
