*blows off dust* oh, hi. I'm back on this. Here, let me fix these walls of text, and I'll have a new chapter soon.


DISCLAIMER: I DON'T OWN ANY OF THE CHARACTERS; ALL I OWN IS THE IDEA. JUST SO YOU KNOW, I THOUGHT THAT GAZ MIGHT HAVE BEEN NAMED AFTER HER DADDY, AND DIB MIGHT HAVE BEEN NAMED AFTER HIS MOMMY IF THEY WERE DEVI AND JOHNNY'S CHILDREN. AND ALSO, I MADE THE C. IN JOHNNY'S LAST NAME STAND FOR CHADWICK. JUST SO YOU KNOW.


"Please… stop…" Gaz begged weakly. Her father hadn't been the same since her mother's death, and decided to throw himself into his work until he felt better, but, when he didn't, he thought he'd harm the source of his wife's passing. Gaz. And he hit Dib also. But, here's something the children never knew. They were kidnapped. But, that didn't stop the professor from beating them on a daily basis for no apparent reason.

"Please…" Dib begged "daddy, please!" Membrane just laughed. He laughed and laughed. He loved the sound pain made. Especially on children that weren't his.

But, one did lose energy by beating the trembling little bundles clinging to each other. "Okay, this beating stuff's getting old. Dib, help your sister." Out of the blue, he was like a whole other person. Dib got a first-aid kit from the bathroom. He tenderly wrapped up one of Gaz's wounds. Gaz was too young to have to go through this. If anyone, it should be Dib.

"Don't worry, Cinderella." He whispered. "Someday soon, we'll both get out of this madhouse." Dib called her Cinderella because Cinderella was treated badly by her adoptive parents, but, she ended up happy. Gaz pulled away from her brother, and ran to find her daddy.

She held her teddy in her arms, and found membrane by the coat rack, getting ready to leave. "Daddy! Wait!" the sweetened girl trembled. Membrane whipped around, and glared daggers at the six year old.

"What do you want, you little brat?" he hissed.

She extended her bear to him. "Take… the… teddy?"

Membrane pushed her away. "I DON'T HAVE TIME FOR YOU!" he smacked her, and went to the car. She, however, chased after him. Dib ran after his sweet sister, trying to protect her from their father… or as they thought he was.

Meanwhile, five houses down

Johnny stared out the window into the rain, fantasizing about his two beautiful children, wishing he knew where they were. He closed his eyes, and flashed back to the day he lost them:

*flashback*

Fifteen year old Johnny and his fifteen year old GF Devi were walking with their two children, a two year old, and a three week-old. "What a wacky looking young man!" some guy proclaimed.

Even at fifteen, Nny was insane. So, he pulled out his Dagger, and ran after the guy who had called him wacky. Devi left the stroller and her young son to chase her boyfriend. As she was trying to pull him off the poor man, the two teens heard Dominique screaming and Jessica crying. The young parents looked up, and saw that famous scientist who killed his wife stealing their children!

"Hey! Put them down!" Johnny screamed, chasing the man with a knife. Professor Membrane looked up, grabbed Dominique by the arm, and ran. Johnny ran after the man as long as he could, but, to no avail. He lost the man. Johnny dropped to his knees, and all he could hear was Devi crying, and his own heart pounding. But, other than that, he heard his own thoughts;

I'm sorry kids.

*end of flashback*

Just then, Johnny heard something from five houses down. "FOR THE LAST TIME," a man screamed "I DON'T WANT YOUR STUPID DOLL!" Johnny ran at vampire speed to the front yard to see the professor with his girl who was crying, and trying to give him a teddy, and his son, Dominique.

Is this why you kidnapped my children, Membrane? So you could abuse them? And the teddy wasn't the worst part; Membrane grabbed her arm, and started punching her.

She was crying and crying, begging, "Stop… please… daddy, please!" DADDY? The word was like a slap across the face.

Dominique started pulling the professor's arm, begging, "Daddy, stop! Please! She's a little girl!"

Dominique calls him daddy too? But, Membrane grabbed him by the neck, and used him to beat Gaz.

Johnny pulled out a whistle (who knows where he got it?) and blew into it for fifteen seconds. When everyone in the yard (and basically on the street) was looking at him, he calmly said, "That's quite enough, Membrane. Do you know who I am?"

Membrane looked at him in horror. Nny knew the answer, but, Membrane tried to act like he didn't. "n-n-no…" he squeaked. Johnny glared at him, true, unimaginable hate in his red eyes.

"'Hey. put them down,'" Nny sneered "sound familiar? You'd better remember me like your life depends on it. BECAUSE IT DOES!" Nny pulled the knife from his pocket, causing Membrane to be so afraid, he looked like he was about to have a heart attack. "I'll ask you again; do you remember me or not?"

"Yes! Yes! I do! You're that wacky looking boy!"

crack went Johnny's sanity. "you can kidnap my children; you can defile my aunt's grave-"

"I'm over here."

"-you can even try to kill me," Johnny said, through clenched teeth, trying his best not to go completely ballistic and kill his children, just the man who had called him 'the w-word'

"but, call me wacky, and YOUR LIFE IS OVER!" he screeched, plunging the knife into Professor Membrane's chest. He pounced on the body, even though he was probably dead already, and reduced him to nothing more than a pile of blood, bones, clothes and organs. He took a deep breath, stood up, and turned to his children, each sure they were next.

"Don't kill us!" Dib squeaked.

"I'm not going to hurt you, children."

"Tell that to daddy!"

Johnny smiled, uh, "sweetly" at the little girl. "He wasn't your daddy, sweetheart. Do you remember me? Oh, of course you don't. Come on, I'll explain at home." He took his son's tiny eight-year-old hand, and Dib grabbed his sister, who was clinging to her teddy. Johnny was going to try to explain their kidnapping as best he could and, once Devi got home from work, introduce them to their mommy.
