Alex Indigo
Sep 02, 2002 05:46 PM

After STella and Hugo had got into their estate.
Alex turned around, and flew to the top of the house.

"hehe, think he can get rid of me, well I'll just keep guard of those two nasty brothers!"

The night falls deeper.

"Yawn! must stay awake.."

Theres a car, that comes thought the neiborhood twice, catching Alex's attention.

"un huh...bring it on.."

The car parks out side, without headlights.

Gus looks at Sammy.
"Well this is Hugo's estate, and that slut of a sister married him...so they must be here, shall we go see?"

Sep 02, 2002 09:59 PM

Sammy cracks his knuckles. "Sure thing," he whispers. "Y'wanna bash the door down, or just surprise her?"
Sep 03, 2002 05:08 PM

Gus gets out of the car, and grabs a gun.
"Were going to surpirse her."

He cocks the gun.

"Now come quietly."

He walks up to the door, watching out for any guards that could be there.


Sep 03, 2002 05:40 PM
A dog growls, and a flashlight shines in Sammy and Gus's eyes. "Hey! Who goes there?" a gruff voice says.


Sep 03, 2002 05:55 PM

Gus, hides his gun.
"Why hullo good sir, we were looking for our sister, we came all the way from california to visit her, and are quit tired so if you don't mind..."


Sep 03, 2002 06:13 PM

"I'd best not wake her," the guard says in a low voice. "You'd best come back in the morning. There's dozens of places nearby where you can rent a room for the night." He keeps his hand firmly on the dog's leash, though the dog is still growling at the strangers.


Sep 03, 2002 06:17 PM

He puts his hand on the gun, and draws it to the dog.
"I think it would be best if we didn't wake her, well just slip right in, any questions?"
Looks at Sammy. "Get the door open."

Alex watches from above, just watching.


Sep 03, 2002 08:15 PM

Sammy heads for the door.

The dog snaps at Gus, and the guard releases the leash. The dog springs at Gus, teeth bared, while the guard goes for his own gun.

Sammy runs to the door in the distraction. He slides a small flat piece of metal between the door and the frame. It pushes the tongue of the lock back in, and it swings open.


Sep 04, 2002 05:38 PM

Gus takes a flying leap back aims the gun at the guards hand that is reaching for his gun.

Then throws the gun to Sammy, taking out another from his jacket pocket.

Stella jolts up in bed, wide eye.
"Hugo! Hugo, did you hear that? I heard a gun!"
She jumps out of and gets a robe.


Sep 04, 2002 05:52 PM

The guard cries out, having been shot right in the hand. He falls to his knees, dropping the gun. But the dog leaps onto Gus, growling, and trying to rip the man's throat out.

Sammy picks up the gun so the wrong people don't pick it up, grumbling something about Gus treating him like a child; of course he has his own gun in one of his inside pockets. He turns back to see what Gus will do, and aims the gun at the dog, in case Gus can't deal with it.


The gunshot wakes Hugo as well. He pulls a gun out of the drawer of the bedside table and puts his slippers on, not bothering with a robe. "You have to hide, Stella; if it's your brothers, they're after *you.*"


Sep 04, 2002 06:00 PM

Gus knocks the dog over the head with the gun, knocking it out.

"Darn it! Okay in, in, we gotta hurry...!"

Gus knocks down the door, aiming his gun inside.


Stella grabs Hugo.
"No! Don't go down there, just lock the door, don't go!"


Alex hears the guns shots, and runs the the other side, next to the window where Stella and Hugos room is.
But somthing flies over him, crashing into the room first.
Alex follows not sure who or what it was.

((guess who? heheh I had to, I debated weather or not, but I finally got a good story to back it up^^*))

A Tall man stands looking at Hugo and speaks only once, but the voice is fimualar and allie.

"Get beside the door, there heading up..."

Alex stood and watched, his eyes widen, it could'nt be...no...but it was....


Sep 04, 2002 06:02 PM

Alex grabbed the man, that was his father.


Sep 04, 2002 06:13 PM

Sammy heads inside without hesitation. The guard manages to get the gun in his left hand and fires, though since he's right-handed and injured, he probably won't hit his target.


Hugo points the gun at the weirdo who just crashed through their second-story window. Even if Hugo should know the man from days past, it's dark and he's too nervous to recognize it, and Alex's presence does nothing to comfort him. "Get out!" he yells at the man.


Alex Indigo
Sep 04, 2002 06:26 PM

Gus jumps into the house missing the bullet by only a bit.

He looks around, only guessing hearing noises from above that there all upstairs.

"Lets stay down here, we don't wanna be trapped, let them come to us..hide in the shadows of the stairs, brother."

Alexandir Lifted his head.
"Aim the gun toward the gun, you think you could do that right boy."

Alex walks over toward Stella.

Stella goes against the wall.
"Alex, whos that? He he looks like you but older..."

"I dont' believe it either, who'd did he get here?"

Alexandir walks toward the door and listens.
"Thats no the problem now son, we have far more things to worry about..." He pause and looked at Hugo. "Do you have a phone near by?"


Hugo McHenry
Sep 04, 2002 08:15 PM

"Then they'll catch *us* by surprise when they come downstairs," Sammy whispers, frowning. "There might be more than one staircase. I don't know about this, Gus. What do you say we get her later? I didn't like the sound of those crashes up there. What if it's more than just her and her husband? Don't matter how good a shot you are, two men don't stand a chance against a couple dozen idiots with guns."


"The telephone's downstairs," Hugo says, his gun still pointed at the stranger. "I don't know what business you think you have breaking our window and coming in to see my wife in her nightclothes." He cocks the pistol. "You've to the count of five to explain yourself or get out."


Alex Indigo
Sep 05, 2002 05:14 AM

Gus nods.

"Sammy, your so smart at times, we need to plan, lets go, get a plan."

runs over to sammy, and follows sammy.


Alexandir looked over at Stella and Alex.
Then he turned on a light.

the light revealed his looks more, long hair, with a streak of white. Deep blue eyes, looks alot like Alex.

"Calm yourself down, I was nearly trying to help, now, I think they might of left, but none to say for sure."

Looks at the door.

"I'll go down to have a look."
He bows his head and opens the door to walk out.

Alex kinda grabbed Hugo.
"No, don't hold that gun to him, thats..thats my father!"

Hugo McHenry
Sep 05, 2002 12:17 PM

Sammy hurries out of the house. The guard is gone and the dog's still out cold.


Hugo stares at Alex in disbelief for a bit, half-lowering the gun. "That's hardly a good reason to let my guard down," he says quietly. "Stella's own family wants her dead. Why should I trust *yours*? At the least, he's probably as *mad* as you are."

Of course, it's not much of an issue since Alex's father has already left the room.


Alex Indigo
Sep 05, 2002 06:41 PM

Alexandir comes back.
"you have a wounded guard, and a knocked out dog downthere, I called the police, and the ambulance."

Stella moved closer to Hugo, she doesnt say anything.

Alex is very insulted.
"Well who ever it was, they probally got scared off by the guard..orsomething.."

Alexandir takes Alex's right hand.
"Yes, might have been scared off, but we dont know for sure, it looked quiet downstairs."

Turns to Hugo.
"Sir, please for give my rudeness of coming in your window, I am so sorry."
Bows his head, and hold out his right hand.
"Alexandir Indigo the second.."


Hugo McHenry
Sep 05, 2002 10:37 PM
Despite his nervousness, Hugo can't help but groan. "That means there were *three* of you?" he murmurs. He sighs, shaking Mr. Indigo's hand. "Hugo McHenry, though I wouldn't be surprised if you knew that already." Without another word, he turns to Stella, looking her up and down. "Are you all right, darling? You're not cut, are you?"


Stella Mchenry
Sep 06, 2002 07:02 AM

Alexandir smiles, looking at the window.
"Well someone had to wake you up, Alex sure wasnt doing a thing."

Alex just crossed his arms, not knowing really what to do but he decides to leave.
"Well I'm outta here....he can handle this.."

Stella, just sits down and tugs at Alex's shirt.

"Did you see them, was it my brothers?"

Alex nods his head, and leaves.

Hugo McHenry
Sep 06, 2002 10:53 AM
"I'm armed, Mr. Indigo," Hugo says indignantly. "I guess I know how to protect my wife." He shakes his head. "Did you see the guard? Will he live? I'd best go downstairs and assess the damages." He heads that way.


Alexandir Indigo II
Sep 06, 2002 05:06 PM

Alexandir follows him.
"Sorry, really shouldn't have got involved...I was just on my way to see Alan, when I seen Alex and the two men..."

He looks at Stella who is following so close to Hugo she keeps hitting his heels.

"and please pardon my son...very anything wrong that he has done..."


Hugo McHenry
Sep 07, 2002 10:28 AM

Hugo doesn't reply. He assesses the damages downstairs, rather surprised that the door isn't damaged. "I *know* we locked it," he says, frowning. He shakes his head. The guard is laying on the floor near the door, his hand bleeding onto the carpet. "We should find a way to stop the bleeding before the paramedics arrive," he says quietly. He nods to Mr. Indigo. "Go find some sheets."


Stella Mchenry
Sep 07, 2002 01:10 PM

Stella nods her head, but doesn't move..she just stand there.

Alexandir(fox) goes and gets some sheets, and starts to wrap it around the guards hand.


Hugo McHenry
Sep 07, 2002 01:24 PM

Hugo hugs her, strongly. "I'll not let any harm come to you, Stella."


Stella Mchenry
Sep 07, 2002 02:34 PM

Nods her head. Words won't come to her.

Alexandir hears the police.
"I guess I should tell them what I saw..."


Hugo McHenry
Sep 07, 2002 02:37 PM

Hugo sighs, and reluctantly lets go of Stella. "As should I." He heads outside.


Stella Mchenry
Sep 07, 2002 02:46 PM

Stella watches Hugo talks to the police, then slides up stairs, calling for Pippy.

"Oh there you are my sweet puppy, Don't worry, my brothers arent coming back..."

Alexandir stands outside after the police has left.

"Well its about morning, I'll just see if Alans awake yet, care to join me?"


Hugo McHenry
Sep 07, 2002 02:48 PM

Hugo shakes his head. "No thank you. I'll have to see about getting a bolt for the door, and some new guards. To say nothing about the window." He goes back inside, sighing heavily once the door's closed.


Stella Mchenry
Sep 07, 2002 02:53 PM

Stella is playing with Pippy.

"Its okay...okay..there gone...gone.."


Hugo McHenry
Sep 07, 2002 02:56 PM

Hugo looks at her for a moment and then goes to the telephone to call someone to fix the window.


Stella Mchenry
Sep 07, 2002 03:03 PM

Looks really tired.

"Oh Pippy I'm so tired, lets go t bed, common, well sleep in the guest room!"

Picks up her fat dog, but then falls down.
"ouff! your so heavy!"

Puts her hand on her head.

"and Im so dizzy."


Hugo McHenry
Sep 07, 2002 03:07 PM

Hugo quickly finishes the call and goes over to help Stella. "Are you all right? The window will be repaired tonight..."


Stella Mchenry
Sep 07, 2002 03:15 PM

Stella shakes her head.
"I'm just got dizzy...ohh.."

"I think I'll just..just..."


Hugo McHenry
Sep 07, 2002 03:18 PM

Hugo puts his arm around Stella's waist and helps her up the stairs. "Shall I phone a doctor?"


Stella Mchenry
Sep 07, 2002 03:20 PM

Stella just shakes her head.

"Oh no, I'm fine...just fill ill..just a lil, probally all the fright, thats all..."

Pippy follows them.


Hugo McHenry
Sep 07, 2002 03:23 PM

Hugo frowns slightly. He's not fond of dogs, aside from guard dogs, but of course he'd put up with far worse for Stella's sake. "Come, then," he says, helping Stella to the guest room.


Stella Mchenry
Sep 07, 2002 03:24 PM

She lays down.
and helps Pippy to lay by her.

"Its okay, they left...Hugo, wont you stay here with me for a while.."


Hugo McHenry
Sep 07, 2002 03:29 PM

"Of course, darling," Hugo says softly. He sits on the bed, looking at Stella with adoring eyes.


Stella Mchenry
Sep 07, 2002 03:35 PM

Her eyes widen as she starts to think...

"Darling, maybe I should see a doctor...."

Looks at Pippy. and pets his back.


Hugo McHenry
Sep 07, 2002 03:37 PM

Hugo's eyes widen. "Of course. I'll phone one right away." He rushes downstairs, frightened.


Stella Mchenry
Sep 07, 2002 03:39 PM

Just lays downs, looking at Pippy.

"No it can't be..but..it could be...maybe..."

Hugo McHenry
Sep 07, 2002 03:40 PM

Hugo comes back upstairs a few minutes later, taking Stella's hand, still worried. "He should be here in half an hour. Will you be all right 'til then?"


Stella Mchenry
Sep 07, 2002 03:42 PM

She just smiles.
"yes I'm fine..just tired and dizzy,but I think I'm fine.."


Hugo McHenry
Sep 07, 2002 03:59 PM

Hugo waits with his wife until the doctor knocks on the door. He runs up and shows him to Stella, then leaves the room, giving Stella her privacy. The doctor comes out a while later, and says that she doesn't seem to have anything wrong. Hugo hurries back up to see her.


Stella Mchenry
Sep 07, 2002 04:05 PM

Stella looks at Hugo and smiles.

"The Dr. said that I might be..."
she pause and hugs him.
"with child."


Hugo McHenry
Sep 07, 2002 10:25 PM

"What? Stella?" He laughs. "So soon?"

Hugo grins, then pauses, looking down soberly. "Um...Stella...I promise I won't be angry with you if you tell me the truth, no matter what the answer...but...were you and Alex...did you ever know him in the Biblical sense?..."


Stella Mchenry
Sep 08, 2002 05:07 PM

Stella looks confussed.
"What do you mean by biblical sense?"
She gives a half smile.


Hugo McHenry
Sep 08, 2002 08:46 PM
Hugo is blushing, not looking at Stella; he really wishes he didn't have to be so blunt. "I mean...did you ever...um...make love to him?"


Stella Mchenry
Sep 09, 2002 05:48 PM

Stella looked up with a werid look, as a chiled about to eat somthing nasty.
"Oh dear no! I'm not that kind of lady!"

She fluttered her eyes, and looked down.
"I do amit...there was times...when we both had it in our eyes, but never...did we..."


Hugo McHenry
Sep 09, 2002 05:54 PM

Hugo sighs, hugging Stella. "I thought...from the way you two were talking...how much you'd seen of each other... I'd've loved the child even if it wasn't mine, but I feared for Michelle..."


Stella Mchenry
Sep 09, 2002 05:56 PM

Stella eys grew green with anger.
"How dare you! How dare you think that this child isn't yours! That I would go, and go..."
She stands up and walks toward the door.
"If you can't trust me...like that..then...I guess its your problem!"
She puts her hand to her mouth.
and just whisper to herself.
"how dare he..how dare he...think that.."


Hugo McHenry
Sep 09, 2002 06:00 PM

"Stella! I didn't mean..." Poor Hugo had no idea a woman would take such an implication so personally; he's rather clueless when it comes to the fairer sex. "I was just...caught by surprise...this is all so sudden; we were only married a fortnight ago!" He composes himself. "You're always acting as though you're a terrible person--as though you feel guilty for your past. I just thought perhaps--*perhaps*--you had a past worthy of your feelings."


Stella Mchenry
Sep 09, 2002 06:08 PM

Stella turns around to look at him.

"Yeah but your not suppose to believe that! I just say that to make me feel better, you know...right? That I'm not bad...am I, am I really that bad? do you think I was that bad!"


Hugo McHenry
Sep 09, 2002 06:13 PM

"I thought Alex may have been able to lead you into temptation," Hugo says quietly, looking down.


Stella Mchenry
Sep 09, 2002 06:17 PM

She looked at Hugo with a look.

"Oh please, like Alex even knows how to...a mean please, he sneaks into my house in the middle of a night...no, not to see me in my nightclothes, or to give me a kiss good night, not even to say hullo,but to give me a puppy and then sneaks off!"
She shakes her head.
"Infact, her rarely ever kissed me! He always asked first! How...how is that you ask someone to kiss them?"

She sat down, and grabbed her pippy.


Hugo McHenry
Sep 09, 2002 08:19 PM

Hugo looks at Stella for a moment, then down. "I'm sorry. I shouldn't've even brought it up. But my conscience is eased now." He stands, knowing he's made a mess of things, but figuring talking will make things worse. "Please let me know if you need anything, darling."


Stella Mchenry
Sep 10, 2002 06:16 AM

Stella looked up, her eyes still angry.
She just pets her dog.

"No thank you, I don't need anything....I'll just get it myself thank you very much!"

She stands up, letting pippy plop to the floor, and walks out toward the kicten.


Hugo McHenry
Sep 10, 2002 09:51 AM
Hugo sighs, ignoring the dog, then heads back downstairs to make some more phone calls.


Stella Mchenry
Sep 10, 2002 10:07 AM
Stella just sits on the couch, and looks at the unlit fire place.

Not sure that Hugo could even hear her, she talks anyways.
"I'm sorry, maybe we should get somthing to eat, or see a movie."

She looked at her hand.
"I wounder if I'll make a good mother..."


Hugo McHenry
Sep 10, 2002 10:32 AM
Hugo doesn't hear his wife, but he comes in soon afterwards, sitting on the other side of the couch. "Everything's taken care of for tonight. Frances has the Hoover and she's cleaning the glass up right now. I've ordered three guards; they'll be here this afternoon. The agency assures me they won't flee." He sighs.


Stella Mchenry
Sep 10, 2002 10:40 AM

Stella leans over to take his hand.
She looks at him with more cheerful eyes.
"Can we...do somthing today, just to get out, like lunch, or a movie, just somthing, maybe a walk in the park?"


Hugo McHenry
Sep 10, 2002 10:42 AM

"If you'd like," Hugo says, running his free hand over Stella's. "I'd just as soon stay home to take care of everything here, but if you'd rather go out..."


Stella Mchenry
Sep 10, 2002 10:49 AM

Stella hugged him.
"yes, lets go, have fun, just let things be for a while."

She stands up.

"I say the park, just walk and hold hands, doesn't that sound fun?"


Hugo McHenry
Sep 10, 2002 10:57 AM
"Certainly," Hugo says, yawning a little--he didn't get much sleep the night before, obviously. He stands, holding out his hand for Stella. "Shall we?"


Stella Mchenry
Sep 10, 2002 11:01 AM

Stella smiles.
"yes, lets just walk with each other."
Sheclosed her eyes and took a deep breathe, then open them.

"lead the way."
