Part Two-The Show Must Go On

:Vicious P.O.V.:
I held the picture of Diana in my hand and I looked at it. Then gave it to the man who pretended he was dead. Mike Yamada AKA Mao Yenrai. "She looks a lot like Julia."

Empty spaces - what are we living for Abandoned places - I guess we know the score On and on, does anybody know what we are looking for...

"She's pretty isn't she, Mike?" He gave me a cup of coffee and some chocolate cookies.

I let Mao live, because he wanted to be free. He helped me out after my whole family was killed.

He sipped his tea. "Do you want to be free, so you can be with her and Julia? Do you want redemption?"

Another hero, another mindless crime Behind the curtain, in the pantomime Hold the line, does anybody want to take it anymore The show must go on The show must go on, yeah

To live in freedom. "Of course I want those things!"

Inside my heart is breaking My make-up may be flaking But my smile still stays on

He takes my katana and looks at it. "I want you to do something. Make me a promise."

Whatever happens, I'll leave it all to chance Another heartache, another failed romance On and on, does anybody know what we are living for ? I guess I'm learning (I'm learning learning learning)

"What is it? I'll do anything!" I say.

I must be warmer now I'll soon be turning (turning turning turning) Round the corner now Outside the dawn is breaking

"Anything?" He looks me in the eyes.

But inside in the dark I'm aching to be free

He slams the sword down across the table. "Then kill the elders and their cronies, that's the only way you can be set free. Do it even if you have to betray your own men. Another thing, after you get rid of them. I want you to never take another life with this weapon. Do you promise?"

The show must go on The show must go on, yeah yeah Ooh, inside my heart is breaking My make-up may be flaking But my smile still stays on

I take the katana and put it back. "Yes, I will do that." I leave his house and head for Julia's apartment.

Yeah yeah

:Julia's P.O.V.

Vicious comes in. "I saw Mike Yamada. I have to get rid of the elders, then after they're gone. I can't take another life."

My soul is painted like the wings of butterflies Fairytales of yesterday will grow but never die I can fly - my friends

I grab a bottle. "This is a little potion, put it on the sword, when you cut Spike with it. It'll put him to sleep in a couple of hours."

The show must go on (go on, go on, go on) yeah yeah The show must go on (go on, go on, go on)

Vicious grabbed the bottle from me. "Well, as long as it doesn't kill him."

I'll face it with a grin I'm never giving in On - with the show

I whisper in his ear. "Make sure your men have tranquilizer darts. I'll probably meet Spike at the cemetery, once I have him the plan can go on as scheduled."

Ooh, I'll top the bill, I'll overkill I have to find the will to carry on

Vicious takes a deep breath. "All this for a kid. But when I saw her, she was alone, no one wanted to play with her."

On with the show

Our daughter. "Well, all of that will change once we're free. Are you with me?"

On with the show

He nods, "Yes, I am."

The show - the show must go on

We shouted as we ran out the door. "To Diana!"

:That was Part Two-Vicious is turning Vash-like, sowwy, but it's my ficcy. Julia is just nuts, so, she's not perfect in this fic or my other one. Part Three-Call Me, Call Me-Ed will leave and she will break Spike's heart in the process.:
