Best Brains owns MST3K...that's about it. Where the Daisies Grow >>Baloo: The Field Where I Died >>Kit:What? >>Baloo:Inside joke. Disclaimer: Mine!!!! Ahahahahahahaha! >>Rebecca:Um...think Ricia's a tad unstable? Okay now that it's out of my system, TaleSpin and all it's respective characters belong to Disney. The poem belongs to me...and I bite so no take it Dedications: This is for all who responded to the last part. Mostly for Dan who helped me with the medical crud. >>Kit:Crud? I guess this should be pretty technical...not. NOTE: If you're looking for jokes read the first part cause unless you're a sick twisted human being you aren't going to get a whole lot of giggles from this. PART II White petals fall too soon From my clinging grasp And as life plays its mournful tune I hear one last gasp >>Rebecca: The sound of the story dying I can't remember where I heard The song that haunts me in my dreams The breath one took to speak the word To calm my inner screams >>Baloo:Rosebud. But I'll keep your hand in mine And pray you never go For I'll be standing by your side Where the daisies grow ********* It all seemed a blur. One moment she was yelling at Baloo like always and then... >>Baloo:She was lounging on the beach surrounded by rich guys! >>Rebecca:Whoo-hoo! A voice. She could remember a pleading voice. >>All: (TS fans) Just give us one more season! Please? Begging her to return. But whose voice was it? Her own? She was so tired. Too tired to try to\ remember, so she let the darkness come. ******** "What do you mean you won't tell me what's going on???", Baloo yelled at the guy behind the desk. >>Kit:(Baloo) I'm telling you I returned that book! It is not overdue! The young man, looked annoyed "Look Mr. Baloo, I told you I don't know anything. When we have word we'll tell you. Now please, either sit down or leave", he said bluntly. >>Baloo:(gets up to leave) >>Rebecca:(pulls him back down) Not you. Baloo fought the urge to throttle the youth and marched >>Kit: Left left left right left back over to Kit. The boy ,holding a crying Molly in his arms, looked up. "No luck Papa Bear?", >>Rebecca:(Baloo): No, the slot machines are rigged! Kit asked trying to comfort the small girl. "No Kit.", he said and picked up Molly. "Don't cry Pigtails, I'm sure everything will be fine. You're Mama's gonna be just fine" >>Kit: (Molly) Who? I'm just listening to my soaps. The little girl sniffed. "Promise?", she asked tears brimming in her eyes. "Promise.", Baloo answered. 'Oh please God, don't let me be lying', he silently prayed. ****** Darkness. A flicker. Reach for the light....always out of grasp. Where? 'Baloo you can't leave me here You wouldn't just...leave' >>Baloo:Uh...Becky? Are you on some kind of acid trip? >>Rebecca:Either that or you've locked me in the closet. ******* The hours crept for the three anxious bears waiting for any word... hoping they were wrong in their assumptions. That their darkest fears would not be confirmed. >>Kit: That Cops was being renewed for another season. Baloo was sick with worry. He barely noticed the two cubs clinging to him. All thoughts were of Becky. >>Rebecca: ...and food, sleeping, treasure, his plane, Kit, that stupid banana song, but at least Becky was in there somewhere. The arguement that seemed to have triggered it all. Maybe it was his fault. Why couldn't the doctors tell him what was happening? 'Oh Becky...I'm sorry' Kit snuggled closer to Baloo. He noticed how tense his Papa Bear was. 'He can't stand to wait', he thought. Kit tried to tell himself everything would be fine but if life on the streets had taught him anything it was that everything was very rarely fine. >>Baloo: Now that's a run-on sentence. >>Kit: I don't believe in commas! He looked over at Molly who had long since cried herself to sleep. He suddenly felt tired and fell into a fitful slumber. ******* 'No...please! Don't go! It's dark...' >>Rebecca: Get me out of this closet! ******* Baloo opened his eyes and was suddenly aware of a hand shaking him. A tall black fox looked down at him. "Mr. Baloo? I am Dr. Cadeever. >>Kit: Dr. Cadeever?? >>Rebecca: Oh dear God I'm a dead woman! I'm Ms. Cunningham's doctor.",he stated. Baloo was instantly awake. "Is she okay? Where is she? Can we see her? What took you guys so long??", he asked rapidly. The two cubs stirred awaked and looked at the two men. Dr. Cadeever looked down at the two children. "Perhaps we'd better discuss this in private, Mr.Baloo.", he said gesturing to a small room adjacent to the waiting room. >>Baloo: Why are they going into the bathroom to discuss this? Kit opened his mouth to protest but Baloo raised his hand. "Keep an eye on Molly, Li'l Britches. I'll tell you about it after.", he said his voice shaking. >>Baloo:...with barely contained hope. >>Rebecca: Hey! Molly's eyes filled with tears. "Mommy's not okay...is she?", she whimpered. >>Rebecca:(Molly) I'm going to be raised by an incompatent lazy pilot. >>Baloo: Hey! The doctor's heart went to the small child. So young...too young. And her...brother? He looked tired and ill. His face tear-streaked. >>Kit: Yeesh. Maybe somebody should get me...er him a doctor. Baloo stepped into the doctor's office and sat down. "Okay doc, I can handle it. What's Becky got?" "Mr. Baloo, we've run countless blood tests. We ran so many tests, >>Rebecca: (Cadeever) She died from blood loss...so sorry. hoping it wasn't true" "What? Doctor what is wrong with her?" >>Baloo: (Cadeever) She's a money grubbing skinflint...but that's not important right now. "Malaria" The world stopped. For one moment all movement ceased. Baloo could hear his scream but it was like it was coming from all around him. He vaguely felt a hand grasp his arm. >>Rebecca: Baloo wake up you're in a bad fanfic. "Mr. Baloo? Are you alright?", Dr. Cadeever's voice came through the haze. "Becky...aw no...not my Becky...please God not her" >>Rebecca: Since when am I your Becky? >>Baloo: Beats me. Ask Ricia. "Mr. Baloo?" "It's not fair. Not her..." "I know this must be tough for you, but you have to be strong. Think of the children." >>Rebecca: One person makes a Sally Struthers joke and I break your legs! Baloo's mind snapped back. "Oh my God! Kit! Molly! How am I gonna tell Molly?" >>Kit:(Molly) She's gonna die? Whoopie! The plane is mine! ******* Kit stared at the closed door. >>Baloo:Kit? You have some weird obsession with doors? >>Kit: Uh...apparantly. He wished he could hear what was going on. The doctor...Cadeever? >>Baloo: Yeah we don't believe it either. had looked regretful. It was bad news, he knew that much...but how bad? He held Molly. Poor Molly, all the family she had was her mom. Her world hung in the balance and what Baloo said as he opened the doors could tip the scales. >>Rebecca: How cute. Ricia's trying to be metaphorical. ******* 'Baloo? Molly? Kit? Please don't leave me here. So dark and lonely I don't want to be alone. Not here. >>Rebecca: I don't wanna be alone in the closet. Not now...I remember how you held me. Kept saying everything would be okay, if I would only wake up. >>Baloo: Hitting on the ambulance workers Becky? I want to be awake I want to be okay Where are you now?' ******* END OF PART II >>All: Whoo-hoo!
