Of Aliens and Royalty
Chapter 14~ The Final Conclusion
Hal and the princess reached the hospital first. As soon as he landed, the villain ran up to the doors of the hospital and kicked them open,
"Someone get her to a doctor!" He shouted to the stunned doctors of the Emergancy Room.
Megamind, Roxanne, Minion and Minonia weren't far behind,
"Did you see a red curly haired guy carrying a girl that looked like me?" Megamind shouted as he grabbed a doctor by the shoulders,
"They're in that room…" the poor doctor stuttured as he pointed to the room down the hall, Minonia running off in the direction that the doctor pointed in.
Roxanne then grabbed the poor doctor, and shook him wildly,
"Forget about him! I'm going into labor!" She said as she socked the doctor in the jaw,
"N-Nurse!" The doctor called out before fainting, Megamind turned towards his girlfriend,
"Honey, you need to calm down-"
"CALM DOWN! You're not the one about to give birth here so YOU CALM DOWN! AND I AM CALM!" Roxanne shrieked. Minion gave Roxanne a look and the dark haired reporter sagged her shoulders,
"Minion…ooh…why did I ever kiss him in the first place?" Roxanne moaned, as a nurse brought a wheel chair over to the expectant mother,
In the other hospital room, Princess Celestial was laying on the bed, her eyes were closed and she was breathing heavily. Hal was gently stroking her hand, when Minonia bounded into the room,
"My Princess!" The black cat shouted as she jumped onto the bed, "My Princess, please say something!"
Slowly Princess Celestial Starburst turned to face her loyal minion, tears in her eyes,
"I…I am…sorry," Minionia had tears racing down her cheeks, "I…used…you…I…lied…" The cat wrapped her arms around the Princess's chest and sobbed,
"My Princess you will not die on me! You're going to be just fine!"
Hal, just sat in the corner and watched, a blank look on his face,
The poor doctor that Roxanne had socked in the face, was now limping back to his office, a bandage on his face and an ice-pack in his hand,
"Mothers these days," the doctor groaned as he made his way to his desk. However as soon as he sat down, a nurse rapped on his door,
"Doctor, your needed in ER room 3!" The poor guy sighed,
"Alright, I'll be down in a second," He said as he slowly made his way from his comfy looking chair and hobbled down the hall way,
However, once he made it to ER room 3, and saw the patients inside, he sighed once more,
"Oh come on! Of course I get the room with the crazy lady that punched me! Ugh! I knew I should have stayed home today…" the doctor muttered before plastering on a fake smile as he greeted the three,
"Doctor! Get me some anesthetic! AHH! Megamind, when I'm through with this I'm personally going to kill you!" Roxanne growled as she squeezed his hand so tightly that his hand began to turn white,
"Ah, ah, hun your hand…"
"Shut up!" She growled at him. Megamind looked at Minion pleading for help before looking at the doctor,
"Sorry, you must have been the doctor she punched…she's normally not like this…"
"Its fine, its fine. After all, that's to be expected with this job. Now lets get started by checking her vitals…"
The same doctor, after checking Roxanne's blood pressure and vitals, left a nurse with them as he went to go check on his next patient,
The doctor walked into the room, only to see the paling Princess laying limply on the bed,
"Ah, sir what seems to be the problem," Hal spoke up for the first time, his face forlorn and his eyes dark,
"I fell in love with her,"
"Miss, please try to calm down-"
"Calm down? I'm about to give birth to an alien baby! HOW CAN I CALM DOWN!"
"Hun, its not good to get so worked up…"
"Please try to calm down a little bit Ms. Richie. You're becoming too OOC…"
The doctor walked back into the room,
"Here are the results from her X-Ray, sir," the doctor said as he handed Hal the file of papers,
"W-What's wrong, doctor?" Minonia whispered, her throat still sore from her sobs,
"She has a virus in her stomach. It seems that at any moment…she will die…"
Minonia scampered into the third ER room where Megamind, Roxanne and Minion were,
"Megamind! The princess…" Minion shouted as she bounded into the room. Megamind, instantly let go of his girlfriend's hand,
"What's wrong with the princess?"
"She…She's got the stomach virus! She's going to die!"
Megamind, Minion and Minonia raced back into the room where Hal and the Princess were,
"Sister!" Megamind cried out as he raced to her bedside,
"Syx…this rain…it brings…rejuvenated…life…and sorrow…"
"Sister, if I…If I had just-"
"Syx," the princess said as she looked at Megamind with a calm look, "My burden is free…I am going to see Mother and Father…I was wrong to…try to ever separate…you and Roxanne…"
Megamind just looked at the princess, tears in his eyes as well as her's.
Hal was in his own little world,
This is all my fault…if I hadn't kissed her…Hal was sure that he was in love with his princess. She was beautiful, kind and even now on her death bed, she did not bear any grudge towards him or Megamind.
As Hal stood in the corner and watched Megamind and Princess Celestial's final goodbyes he couldn't help but to feel a tug at his own heart. Soon it would be his time to say his goodbyes,
Suddenly, a nurse ran into the room,
"Mr. Megamind, sir? Roxanne is about to start pushing, but she won't start until your in the room with her,"
"Ah…I'll be right there…" Megamind said as he took one last longing look at his sister before following the nurse, Minonia and Minion left the room as well, knowing that Hal and the Princess needed to be alone. After a couple minutes of silence, Hal faced her and began to speak,
"There…isn't any way to save you?" Hal asked timidly. The princess smiled sadly,
"I can feel my body's life force draining…Hal…if…you were to do anything by now…it would…already be too late…" Hal's face crushed,
"…you need to know that I...never...meant anything that I said Hal. Although...our time was short, I...really enjoyed your presence,"
Suddenly, Hal cradled his fingers around her face and brought her into a kiss which she accepted, How Ironic, the princess thought, That my life shall be ended by the kiss that started it, Tears escaped her eyes as she embraced the gesture. Mother...you were right...The princess's soft blue eyes began to close,
"Hal...I...I always liked you...don't forget that..."
"I'll never forget, my princess," The red head sobbed as he clung to the Princess' now lifeless hand, "I'll never forget..."
And as Hal sat by the hospital beside weeping for the loss of his Princess, a new life was brought into the world, guided by the rain.
A/N: OMG! I am finally done with this story! I think my mental limit for stories is about 14 chapters :P This chapter was done on the 13th but then I went to a weekend tournament, so I couldn't update sooner (no internet you know…) I'm sorry for leaving you all in suspense!
As for the rain thing, I was just thinking of the abrupt weather change from sunny to rain in the previous chapter and then I was thinking about weather symbolism and I thought I'd add it in, last minute. Rain normally connotes feelings of sadness and despair, yet its water can bring life to plants, so I thought that was a little bit of irony that I wanted to implant. Gives you something to think about you know, ;)
I liked the ending but then I also didn't (it doesn't really feel like it ended does it?), I really wanted the princess to die quietly (normally my endings end with a bang) so this is quite the change!
Anyway, enough with the long paragraphish Author's Note:
Thanks to all of my readers, who waited years for this story to be finished! I'm terrible,I know I know :P
