What am I supposed to tell Kobra? We can't have a pregnant killjoy out, especially not me. I'm supposed to be a fighter, I'm supposed to be strong! I can't raise a child in this world! Especially not with BLI after us all, Kobra would never allow it. Oh God, what am I supposed to do?
"Umm Chloe? Can I speak to you... Alone."
Chloe was sitting next to Gerard sharing a can of Power Pup, they were laughing at each other gagging. They had a pretty strange relationship. Almost like me and Kobra.
"Hey PB, what's up?"
PB? That's a new one, it's probably the smartest thing I've ever heard her say. Ever.
"Well I sort of need to tell you something..."
"You're pregnant aren't you?"
Ok, I take back the thing about not being smart.
"W-what? How do you know?"
"Well I may not be the smartest but remember that time my Mother got pregnant with Jessica or Susan as BLI know her as..."
She didn't have time to finish before she was on her knees breaking down.
"I- I just miss them so much! Why did we ever leave Megan?! Why? I don't care about BLI, I just want my family back!"
I couldn't lie. I missed those days too. We used to go dancing every Saturday together, everything was so perfect! Me, Chloe and Louise would all sit and talk about music or just joke about. We don't know what happened to Louise after BLI took over, last time we saw her a draculoid was dragging her into a large building. It was horrible.
"Get off me you dick!!!!!"
What was going on? I walked out of my house meeting Chloe who was sitting on the pavement.
"Hey C- I mean Elizabeth. What's going on?"
I really needed to get used to calling everyone by their BLI approved names.
"Oh hi, Victoria. It's Louise, she's being sent to Haru. None of us know why"
I did. Louise had always wanted to be a killjoy. She refused to change her name or clothing since BLI came, I just hope to god that they won't hurt her. Surely they won't, BLI are here to protect us from the killjoys. Aren't they?
None of us had seen Louise since.
"C'mon Chloe, you know your sister wouldn't want to see you like this. And I know Party doesn't, speaking of which..."
Party started walking over to Puppet before he wrapped his arms around her waist.
"Is everything ok Peroxide?"
Gerard was like a big brother to me and I loved him for it, if it weren't for him and Korba then me and Chloe would be dead.
Chloe turned and gave me a deadly stare.
"Peroxide, I told you! Only call me by my Killjoy name out here, it's not safe"
I kept forgetting that.
"Fine. Puppet, where are we?"
I saw a confused look on her face as she tried to figure out the map.
"Well, umm... If we were there... Somewhere... Then..."
Ok, this seriously wasn't helping me. I was dizzy and dehydrated.
"OK! I KNOW WHERE WE ARE! No... I don't"
I let out a huge sigh as I fell against the car.
"Face it C... Puppet. We are lost and we are going to die in the desert! I haven't even lived properly! Oh God! I don't want to die"
Maybe I was being a little hysterical but it was the heat, it was getting to my head.
"Look Peroxide, we are going to make it. I promise you, something goods coming. I can tell"
(3 hours later)
"Seriously Jet, you've had me driving for hours. When can we get back to the diner?!"
My vision was black and I was beginning to hear voices, is this what it felt like? Being dead. It's a strange feeling, I can still feel the heat and hear everyone.
"Oh shut up Ghoul, we will be back once Party finds what I'm looking for"
Voices everywhere. Wait, am I dead?
"Don't get me involved! It's Kobra anyway! He has the map!"
"Woah! What did I do?!"
This strange man had a voice that not even an angels could compare to. Kobra. A deadly, vicious name but such a sweet and caring voice. And then I heard him again.
"Guys, what's that car?"
He has noticed us, oh crap. What if he thinks we are BLI spies?!
I felt a sudden force on my arm, leaving me to fall against the car.
"Well done Kobra, wait this ones waking up"
I slowly opened my eyes and saw a man with red hair pick up Chloe and carry her bridal style to his car nearby.
"Hello? Are you awake?"
My eyes began to open, I was beyond curious as to who this mystery figure was. A tall man crouching slowly began to take off a large yellow helmet revealing a pair of deep brown eyes. His blonde hair falling over his face as he cupped my face in his hands.
"Hey, you ok?"
"Umm, yeah... W-who are you? And where is C... Puppet?"
I sat and checked where we were. Yep still in the desert.
"She's in our Trans Am with my brother, Party Poison. I'm M... I mean Kobra Kid and you are?"
Why do I recognise those names? They sound so familiar but I just can't see where I know it from... Kobra... Party... Wait, Kobra Kid, Party Poison... Fun Ghoul... Jet... Star... OH GOD!
"Wait, you're the fabulous killjoys aren't you? I'm Peroxide Bride"
Kobra grabbed my hand and pulled me into his chest helping me into their trans am.
"Umm yeah, I'm fine thanks Party... I just need to speak to Mikey"
Just as I finished Mikey came walking around the corner of the diner engulfing me into a hug.
"Hey baby. You ok?"
"We need to speak"
I grabbed his hand and took him outside to where the trans am was parked, Mikey grabbed my waist and lifted me onto the bonnet.
"Look, Mikey. I need to speak to you. The thing is... I think I'm pregnant..."
His face lit up as soon as I said the word.
"OH MY GOD MEGAN! IM SO HAPPY!"
Well that was a surprise.
