Ok, this song is old but it's stuck in my head! So I ahd to write a story about it and I think it's the best songfic I've done! Y'all will have to tell me!


I'm 15 for a moment
Caught in between 10 and 20
And I'm just dreaming
Counting the ways to where you are

He lay on his bed, thinking about what had just happened. His parents had a fight again and this time he knew it was the last one they would have. His dad was leaving, going to California to make it big. His mom just shouted at his dad, telling him that it's just a fantasy that he is after and that she never wanted to see him again, he wasn't even allowed to visit his two kids.

Archie grabbed his diary. He didn't care what the other kids thought, it was the only way to keep his sanity during this rough time. He turned to a new page and started writing.

I'm 15 now and I feel life is passing me by. All I do is stay up here in my room, waiting out mom's cries, dad's shouts. Now they are all over. Soon I'm going to be 16 and then 17. Before you know it, Jenny, my little sister, will be 20 while I'm 30. That's scary.

Archie closed his diary and sighed. He didn't know that 15 was probably a good year for him, for he did not know that when he was 17, he would be fighting an evil god of time.

I'm 22 for a moment
She feels better than ever
And we're on fire
Making our way back from Mars

Archie gulped as he watched his bride walk towards him, her veil hiding her face. But he could still see her beautiful hazel eyes. He looked next to him at his best man and best friend, Jay. Next to him was Archie's other friends, Odie, Herry and Jay. Archie looked back at his sister who was the flower girl and his brides best friend, Theresa, who was the bride's maid.

His bride was standing next to him and he carefully took off the veil to reveal her beautiful face and her bright red hair. "You look beautiful, Atlanta." Archie whispered to her. She smiled up at him. "You look not too bad yourself."

They stood before the minister and said their vows. Before they knew it, Atlanta was throwing her bouquet of roses and Theresa caught them. He then whisked her away to their honeymoon destination.

15 there's still time for you
Time to buy and time to lose
15, there's never a wish better than this
When you only got 100 years to live
I'm 33 for a moment
Still the man, but you see I'm a they
A kid on the way
A family on my mind

"I'm pregnant Archie!" Atlanta squealed into the phone, which surprised Archie as Atlanta never squealed. But this was great news! "That's great Atlanta! I'm coming home now and we can celebrate!" He said. They both hung up and Archie ran out of his office and to his boss'.

"Jay! Atlanta and I are expecting a baby!" He said to his boss and best friend. Jay looked up from the paper work and smiled. "That's great Arch! You can leave early and celebrate with Atlanta!" He said. "But you and Theresa have to come with us! Odie, Herry and Neil too!" Archie said.

Jay nodded and both of them headed towards Archie's and Atlanta's house. Jay phoned Theresa and told her to phone Odie and the others.

I'm 45 for a moment
The sea is high
And I'm heading into a crisis
Chasing the years of my life
15 there's still time for you
Time to buy, Time to lose yourself
Within a morning star
15 I'm all right with you
15, there's never a wish better than this
When you only got 100 years to live

Archie fell onto his bed. He and Atlanta had another fight. He hated it, it was his parent's marriage all over again. He looked at his bed side table and saw his diary from 15. He opened it and wrote an entry.

I'm not going to be like him. I'm going to change. From now on, Atlanta and I will no longer fight. I'm doing it for my daughter's sake; she doesn't deserve the life I had.

Half time goes by
Suddenly you're wise
Another blink of an eye
67 is gone
The sun is getting high
We're moving on...

Archie stood before her grave, the second time he had returned here in the same month she died. She had cancer; she died the same way his mother had. At least she didn't die before she went to their daughter's wedding.

Archie stood there, looking at the grave stone carving, 'A wonderful friend, mother and wife. You went through so much and now you can finally rest.'

I'm 99 for a moment
Dying for just another moment
And I'm just dreaming
Counting the ways to where you are

Archie lay in the hospital bed, pipes coming out from his mouth and needles coming out of his arms. He was 99 and he never expected to live this long. His daughter was sitting by his bedside. "Dad, you know I love you? And I loved mom aswell." She said, tears rolling down her eyes. Archie frowned but then his life passed before his eyes.

15 there's still time for you
22 I feel her too
33 you're on your way
Every day's a new day...

His parents fighting, fighting Cronus, marrying Atlanta, Atlanta telling him the great news, the birth of his child, him and Atlanta fighting, Atlanta's death and now his death.

15 there's still time for you
Time to buy and time to choose
Hey 15, there's never a wish better than this
When you only got 100 years to live

Archie Harris died, age 99, due to lung failure. His daughter had to take him off life support to save him from the pain to come. He died peacefully and rejoined his friends, and the love of his life, in the Elysian Fields.


Ok, if you are thinking 'What is she doing? Didnt' she say she was leaving?' Well, I said CotT was getting boring writing about, so I will not be starting new stories. I'm writing stories on FanFiction, but all my CotT stories are on FicWad! I'll still be here, I'm not leaving for good (so if you were thinking about throwing a party to celebrate me leaving and never coming back, sorry!)!!
