He came in a hurry that must have meant he must have thought she was prego. She’d never take that risk. It would be career suicide at this point. She had to keep working on her career for a while before anything like that ever happened. They were just so busy, there wouldn’t be any time and plus, she didn’t know if that’s what it would ever lead to. She loved Mase to death but you could never be sure. She sat up and glanced at the flask and felt slightly guilty for making him work on it but then suddenly he focused on the TV. She couldn’t believe he was actually considering it was true. And then he called her ‘baby’ again. It was becoming a habit but she just like it when they just used their regular nicknames. It made things right. Just because they’ve spent a good years enough together, she didn’t want too much to change or it wouldn’t be them anymore. It would just be another couple.
“Mase, I’m going to remind you again. Don’t call me by that,” She reminded “Just call me Char, like you usually did. It’s what I’m used to and it’s my name. Calling me that makes me seems like every other girl that has a boyfriend... I don’t like being every other girl.” She smiled at him and then got him to sit right beside her on the couch. She leaned her head on his shoulder.
“Don’t trust the media. You know I won’t... They’re just a bunch of cocky actors that want to use me to gain fame. I love you, only you,” She stated and then put her head up. She met his eyes and wasn’t too sure if he knew she confirmed it or not but she didn’t. She didn’t want to screw things up for him and have some people trying to track him down. She knew what could happen to a celeb’s boyfriend or girlfriend.
“Hey, listen I never confirmed we were dating to the public. Did you know that? I didn’t think it would be right because it would give you a hard time. Being in cameras and having people gossip, and then accuse you of dating or cheating is terrible and it’s less privacy and they go snooping in your life. I didn’t want you in that... But I’m just thinking of announcing it tomorrow, if that’s okay with you. I’m just sick of them assuming I’m dating so many different people. I only want you in that place. So, if it’s fine, I want to tell them you’re my boyfriend,” She bit her bottom lip hoping that he’d allow her. She knew that it was a lot to handle but she was just so tired of these accusations and not speaking that she did just love him. Then he moved onto the fake prego thing. Doubted...?
“That was the other thing I was going to tell you about...” She strolled on. Although, something just hit her. She raised an eyebrow “Okay, what if I do want it? Then what are you going to do? Our careers are important but are they more important than that?” She didn’t. She wouldn’t. Too much of a risk.
“You can’t just fix things up with chemicals all the time. And Mase, you don’t know if that’ll work for sure. You never tested it out,” She reminded him. Then she heavily sighed and decided to just let it out. Turns out, it wasn’t as funny as she thought. She should have just thrown it out the bag.
“It’s fake. I’m not pregnant. It’s practically impossible with how careful we are. I just wanted to see your reaction. But really, if I somehow did, what would you do? I wouldn’t want to take a chemical to destroy it. You’ve got to know me at least that much. I can’t stand chemistry and taking that risk. I’d rather go through it but don’t worry, it won’t ever happen. So, you won’t ever have to worry about it or make something to get rid of it,” She finished and start to rest her head at the edge of the couch again. She might have been slightly grumpy today from all the work going on these past days and weeks. But it wasn’t depression, she was just tired out.
Mason spent the afternoon working on trying to come up with a way to get rid of the baby. What if the media caught this, what if she lost her career because of this. It was clear they werent ready for a baby. Not now. Their careers were skyrocketing and the last thing he wanted was to have a baby and end it all. They were both doing so well. He was the biggest name in science, and she was the biggest name on television. Of course everyone knew her. The media was much more known than the science world. WHen he walked along the streets, he wasnt tackled down, he wasnt filmed. He was still just a normal guy with a nobel prize. But it still wasnt a big deal.
Ever since Charrie made her first film, she had been everywhere. He barely had anytime to spend with her. It was much different than when they lived at the tree house. THey were together twenty four seven. THey practically never left the other's side. This time he barely saw Charrie except at night. And if they were out in public, they were always being bothered with paparazzi. Well what could he do? SHe was such a celebrity.
When he heard the sound of her voice in the living room, he gulped, hurrying out of the lab when he finished making his no prego mix. "Im here Charrie. I made something for you, which you should take now!" he hurried, holding the flask as he hurried out the door. He knew those words anywhere. Hey we need to talk? that meant she really was pregnant.
WHen he made his way outside, he panted softly, holding the bottle in his hands. Charrie never confirmed they were dating. He didnt know that at all. He thought the whole world knew. No wonder why no one ever tackled him down when he was in public. But as he stared at the tv, he was shocked. A male confirmed that they were dating. What the hell was going on? As he stared, he looked down at Charrie, knowing he didnt really believe in this sort of thing, but it was getting much too serious. Another male actor just confirmed it. That had to mean something right?
"Baby? WHo is that guy? Is it true?" he looked over to her, holding the liquid in his hands as he placed it onto the table. "I-I made you something that would try and lose the pregnancy....I doubted you wanted a child right now" he gulped.
It’s been great through the years. Nothing so terrible has occurred and they were both so successful. She didn’t do much for the world really. All she did was creating this fantasy world and make it real and out there. Although, people who said TV teach you nothing, they were wrong. A lot of people learn a lot of things on TV, especially kids who learn their sense of moral or how they talk. Media affected everyone, manipulated them. She never liked the manipulations, she just loved the enjoyment. She never focused on selling and influencing others to be stupid to be cool because that’s what this ‘actor’ or ‘character’ did. Then she also had to keep herself in watch because if she did something wrong, than she’d be caught and people would want to do it or shun her completely out. As for Mason, he made it big up there. He actually helped a lot of people. She was slightly jealous. He was so smart and now he was healthy. He really did surpass everyone. To think she thought of him such a loser really years ago and the other people that didn’t think much of him. They really made it big, both of them. She never thought this was going to happen but it did. The survived through the hard times and got something that was well worth it.
As she came into the apartment, she did not exactly see him in the living room. Did he runaway after seeing that? She knew he normally ran away from his problems but not as much, but she couldn’t picture him running away from it. He’d probably find a way to handle it. She smiled to herself as she rested her bag on the couch. Maybe he was in his lab trying to fix something up like last time. She was so tired from that meeting and then helping out the kids. Tomorrow, she had to go into an interview, and then talk to this actress with the manager. They wanted to personally talk to her about getting the role but Charrie wasn’t sure about that. She never liked that actress-all because of what she heard how it’s like to dealing with her. Then after that, she will drop at the dojo for a good half an hour and then there was a party afternoon that she was invited to but unsure if she wanted to go.
“Mase!” She yelled out. She could just check the other rooms but just felt too tired to get up at this moment. Just in a few seconds, and she promises to herself that she will get up. She had to go get changed into something more comfortable.
“We need to talk! It’s important,” She declared. She just wanted to have fun with him like she used to. The only place she could talk comfortably with him was inside here because everywhere else, she was afraid of someone was listening on. She was careful not to be seen. Then she forced herself to get up and go into the closet. She changed into a long t-shirt and some leggings. She came out dragging her feet and dropped back into the couch again, flicking the TV on. When she turned it on, it was a cartoon show. She went through a couple of channels and sighed as she saw herself. All of them thought she was so innocent, so kind, funny, charming and brave. She wasn’t so innocent. She did things that they couldn’t believe but that was all over. Then they showed an image of her with some actor walking, talking, eating and declared that she was having secret meetings with him to date. She rolled her eyes.
“Yea right... He wishes,” She scoffed. Then they showed a clip of the actor saying she was attractive and he confirmed that they were- She chocked on her own spit. Her eyes started to tear up. She ran to the kitchen and drank water down. That bastard! She knew she shouldn’t have bothered to talk to him about the film! He just wanted this chance to get people to know him. He wasn’t even a known actor, he used her.
“Ugh! Why me!?” She whined. She couldn’t let these things get to her head. She shut the TV off and groaned, lying on the couch. She had to fix that up. She didn’t exactly confirm Mase and her were girlfriend and boyfriend. She should clear that up tomorrow but she was afraid of the media getting in their noses in and accuses her of cheating something. Mase never really believed that stuff, and thank god for that. It was just better to say she loved him and only him and state that anyone she is speaking to is only for the movies.
THe thought of her encouraging him that he would be stronger made him smile. He loved how Charrie truly cared for him. He knew his job, but even with all these chemicals, she kept him in check. Not to do anything crazy or life threatening. But the fact that she said it wasnt his appearance that she loved him made him one of the happiest guy ever. He didnt need to work so hard to become super buff, but he did want to be healthy. "Well I believe you look amazing. But just like you Im not dating you just because of your looks. I liked you when you were pull ups and pigtails" he chuckled and finally made it back to the tree house.
Eventually a few weeks became a few months and the two of them were growing so much more closer together. The fights began dying down, their problems were slowly going away, and they were as fit as can be. Mason continued with his daily routine of cooking for Charrie, then they would eat breakfast and head out to train. WHen he was too exhausted, the two would spend so much time getting to know the other through the years they've missed. All of this distraction and training really had Mason focused. He had finally gained some muscle in both his abs and arms. He wasnt some scrawnt geek anymore. He was a finely toned geek. And thanks to Charrie's company, he was able to give up on drinking alcohol. The first week was the worst, but Charrie was much stronger than he was. She would hold him down. The weeks after became much easier to the point of him being back to normal. At least mostly.
Charrie had also been getting much better. He noticed that if he made her mad, or kissed her, she wouldnt even think about anything depressing. And since most of her depressing thoughts were on Russia, or between the two of them, as long as he stayed happy, she was too. Mason felt so close to her. There was no need to be insecure anymore. And by the time they returned home, they had a few more things to deal with. Mason's parents were used to his disappearance, but when he came home, they were happy. HE had stopped the alcohol business and was even looking less pale and about to die. Of course he avoided Charrie's parents. He knew that her father probably still had a shotgun stuck behind him each time. But it did die down a little.
Charrie never left Heath's side, but Mason didnt feel insecure about her being with him. Sure he could try his luck, but he believed that Charrie only loved him and that Russia was simply a mistake. THey had gotten over all of that. Mason was even able to get his job back at the secret weapons department. He still worked in the same industry as Prim, and they finished their project. Prim would try to do more, but Mason simply sent her to another department, only calling her over if he needed her help.
His healing water was finally approved and sold in stores. It was prescribed by doctors and soon he was rolling in the dough. He had become famous in the scientific world, but tv wise, Charrie was all over it. She had become a celebrity in the entertainment world. While he was being distracted with live demos, or interviews on his next idea, Charrie had paparazzi all over. Sometimes it was even hard for him just to get into his own apartment. But he was really proud of her. She did what she wanted and now she was a big star. He was just glad that he had made such a huge impact on people's lives. He even started launching his product in different countries. THe man thing he was proud of was that people respected him now. Sometimes he even wondered what Heath thought of him now. But that didnt bother him. The two have been doing great things without having much of a need to hurt themselves anymore. It was going great.
When Mason finally woke up, he rubbed his eyes and headed into the bathroom. After taking a shower, he wrapped a towel around his waist and noticed the pregnancy test on the counter. When he saw it was positive, he nearly jumped through the roof. "Oh god no. She isnt....we...we were careful! MOre careful than we've ever been before!" he was starting to panic. He quickly dressed and headed into the kitchen to see the note on the fridge. Okay, she'll be back later! he ate some toast and Jam before heading down to his office to grab a few things. Mason had been working on a new experiment. One that would cure the flu in a few hours. He spent the rest of the day testing out a few more things before he headed home for the afternoon. Prim was quiet today. She hadnt said a word all week. He wondered what happened? Was it because he was famous? He didnt know, but he had other things to worry about.
As he headed home, he started working in his secret lab. He was trying to make something that would stop an early pregnancy. Charrie just couldnt. How could she be pregnant now, but not then!
“That’s all I wanted to hear, a promise,” She smiled back at him. As long as he wasn’t harming himself with those chemicals, than she wouldn’t worry. Besides, she trusted him a lot that he could handle it. His healing water was a really great idea and he’ll probably strike rich on his own. She wanted to gain a lot of money on her own as well. Of course, to do that she needed her parents money. It was just perfect that she was born into a wealthy family because it gave her better chances. It wouldn’t be as hard as the people who started at the bottom.
“Don’t worry; the wind won’t be able to blow you down if you grow healthy. It’s not appearance that I love you, so that doesn’t matter too much. I’m not as attractive as some of my cousins and a lot of people Mase. You’re probably the only one that thinks of me like that. I just see myself as decent, and comfortable of how I look. ” She stated. He was insecure but that had to die off too. Even if he said not to laugh, it was still amusing. He was right; it was terrifying to the normal person. She helped him out the way back. Just the two of them like this felt right.
The more time spent together, pushing each other to be their best. Yes, they were ups and downs but it seemed everything was getting fixed and they were. She didn’t have any need to really cut anymore. The depressive thoughts wouldn’t come in her head unless she chooses to think really deeply about them. She still felt bad for what she did but she wasn’t going to live forever in the past of it. She moved on and decided dedicating her life in misery wasn’t right. Mason didn’t need alcohol to solve his problems or just for the hell of it. It was tough but nobody said it was going to be easy. There, she proved it. She didn’t need therapy from a stranger. Eventually, they did have to go back and she had to face her parents. They were devastated, and angry at her for avoiding them. Heath didn’t take it so lately for avoiding him too and eventually dropped his bodyguard position. Instead, he was helping her out in a dojo-teaching some kids and teenagers martial arts. She knew she should break it off for Heath for good but she couldn’t. Not after all they’ve been through. It would be losing a close friend.
Now, her and Mason didn’t have to live fighting each day because of their issues. They could just live with each other normally-or as normal as it could get with their unique relationship. It was early morning and she had to get up because one of her mother’s connections to film called up. This was Charrie’s second movie she made. Her first did get her noticed, famous even. It was sometimes a bother but she kept her privacy well kept and made sure she had time for herself. People always assumed she was dating many different celebs and then they found out it was for the movie. She had a boyfriend, and she didn’t ever want to lose him. She loved her privacy and she never really wanted to famous, famous, and just make movies. As soon as she finished talking with the person, she hung up. She had to meet up with up with them about now. She was currently in the kitchen of the apartment.
Then she grabbed the pregnancy test box and went into the room Mason was sleeping in. She thought of doing this prank for years but after the first time she was worried that it could actually happened, she almost scrapped it out. She opened it, switched it to positive and left it near the washroom. He had to see it in order to work. If he didn’t, than she’d have to do the manual way.... Luckily, they weren’t as stupid as last time, so they had nothing to worry about. So it was safe to pull this prank. She moved at the side of his bed and kissed him gently on the cheek as he was sleeping. She sighed and then entered the kitchen again, leaving a sticky note on the fridge.
‘Hey, meeting up with that lady- Sarah Macklin for the movie. Then to the dojo. See you afternoon. Love you! ’ She’s been busy these days lately. Hell, the only time she got to see Mason was afternoons because some mornings she had to rush and get out. There were days where she wasn’t busy but very rare. She loved those days. She could spend them with Mason. She got dressed and then left to go that meeting. They talked about casting directing, scenery and such. They already had the people for it, they just had to approve of everything and put up the auditions. That took a good amount of her time. She got a small break and had to go to the dojo and meet up with Heath. She actually loved dealing with the kids. There was one cute little boy that tried to flirt with her. It was just adorable. He had an older seventeen year old brother that also tried to flirt with her annoyed her more than anything. He was practically a kid. She never took it to heart because he was just seventeen and knew nothing. But the seventeen year old wouldn’t say a thing when Heath was watching. She finished with that and headed off the to the apartment. She fit in the key and walked in, expecting Mason to be there and probably panicking-unless he figured out that it was a prank. Which she doubted because she hadn’t pulled anything for years. She liked pulling things like this on him.
"I know, I know. I wont test on myself. I have lab rats. But even then I still feel like a good person is worth the test if the outcome is ground breaking. I mean yes it's terrible, but it could also save millions of people's lives. So for me I think it's worth it. But I'll tone it down. Promise"
he grinned and thought about his healing water. If this was finally let to the markets, he would be famous. His goals would be achieved and he would be a role model, a genius, a savior. People just wouldnt look down on him anymore, and thanks to Charrie's support, he didnt feel so helpless any longer."I may have the brains, but if you challenged me to fight....Im pretty sure my brain will be the first thing beaten down. Still it's nice to have strategy and a plan to work through. How else would I come up with those little sneak attacks on you. And you're not just brute strength either. You're smart with tactics and you're fast. Those skills combined make you one deadly girl to deal with. I doubt with all this training I will lay a finger on you. This is just to help me compare in attraction. Right now if someone saw us as a couple, they would wonder how in the world did I get such an attractive girl to be mine. I mean....a strong wind could blow me down"
he laughed and just rolled his eyes."Dont laugh at me.....I was terrified. It's not everyday someone is after you with weapons. And for a person who cant fight, it was horrible. Of course I bursted into adrenaline mode. Here it's alright. I can take it easy and just work hard. After all that's the only way to get results"
He looked up into her eyes as she laid over him. Sitting up, he stretched and rubbed his thighs from hurting so much. "I think Ill need assistance back to the tree house. We should get going before I collapse here. I doubt you can lift me up alone"
he smiled at the thought of her becoming famous. She had a great dream and he could see himself beside her, supporting her. If she became famous, he just hoped that she kept him in his sights as well. He knew that day three years back he made her keep a promise, but he wondered if she even still remembered that.
As he held onto her shoulders for support, he walked through the trees as he followed his tracking device. In a few minutes, they were safely walking back to the entrance of the tree house, heading up the elevator. Days like these were so peaceful. It took a lot of hardwork to train today, but his mine was occupied, he had Charrie beside him, and he didnt feel like he had so many problems anymore.
Should we TS to when they're in good shape hun? Or discuss what should happen?
“You shouldn’t test anything on yourself whether it’s toxic or not” She frowned. He trusted his science a lot more than she would ever. She couldn’t. She trusted herself to hold a weapon and use it well but she doubt Mase, could handle there. There you go, they were practically equal. She shouldn’t ever look down on him because he couldn’t do the stuff she could and it shouldn’t go the other way either. It seemed being together like this, and focusing on this distracted them from everything else. It didn’t put so much stress over her mind.
“Most people don’t need to fight. You got something better,” She assured him. Other than her fighting skills, she was pretty creative. How else did she find much different way to torment Mason for many years? Then they had finished the half hour and he looked really tired. She knew it must have been really tough on him. If she was pushed to the limit she’d just break.
“It is better. Last time you just ran on adrenaline. It was too funny,” She laughed. It was great to see him trying so hard to do this. She honestly felt like they were getting better. Maybe it wouldn’t be too long before they got better and they’d just be able to live normally-or at least their normal. Maybe, she wasn’t exactly doing herself her favour by making him get so strong. Weather she liked it or not, guys had an advantage over their strength. She had good strength but she mostly just focused on moving quickly and inflicting the most damage possible. Then he’d have some advantage over her-yet, she’d still win in the end. Oh well, they would never get into war like that ever again.
“Ha, that’s a good number,” She said and watched him started to wobble. She giggled watching how much she pushed him. She should help him out. Moments like this seemed comfortable and easy to be with him. They weren’t fighting; they were just two people trying to get better. Then he lay there on the grass. It was a good time to call it quits. She didn’t want to kill him. She lay right beside him, hovering over.
“We can stop now,” She assured “You did great today. If we keep going at this, you’ll be good in no time. Once we can get better we can live normally. Go on with our lives. You go to work, I’ll get a job, make a film maybe even become a celebrity. Then... Then-well who knows what happens but I hope that it’ll be good.” Having that hope that things would turn her for the best want her to keep going. Staying away from her parents might just be what could make her better. She didn’t need to go to therapy. She didn’t want a strangers help. She’d rather have Mason, even if they were both twisted up.
Mason knew that all of his hard work was going to benefit himself and his relationship with Charrie. If he was healthy and fit, he would be able to run from someone and not just solely depend on adrenaline. And if everything went well, he wouldnt need the alcohol and he would probably add another ten years to his lifespan, which was always a plus. The thought of running and doing pull and push ups was going to destroy fat and build muscle. The health benefits were great, but there was one thing he wanted other than that. He also wanted to defend and look good against Charrie. Sure she could beat him up to a pulp, but if this worked, he could at least put up a small fight, or maybe even pin her down. That would be lovely. It was rather odd that she was the one taking charge in this relationship. Usually the male's role was to be the strong and protective one. But then again, they werent ordinary. With the muscles, he could stand up to Charrie and not look like some skinny wimp. He didnt want to look like a bodybuilder or anything, a finely toned body was all he asked for. Charrie was amazing outside and underneath her clothes. He wanted to be as well.
The thought of experimenting on himself was brought up on accident. He didnt mean to worry her, but he did tend to use his concoctions on himself sometimes. "Dont worry. I wont use it on myself unless I know for sure it's not toxic" he promise, continuing his jog through the woods. Talking with her really helped him keep his mind off of his aching muscles and straight to his goal. He wasnt going to give up so easily. Yes it was tough, but with Charrie depending on him, he'd give his best.
After a while, he would walk and take a breather, trying to relax and gain some energy to continue. That's when she said that he wasnt so weak. And when he thought about it, she was right. Just the way she said it made him feel so relieved. "You're right Char. I guess IM not so weak in my world, but in yours I am. And you're the same. I never thought about it like that. But then again we all have our strengths and weaknesses. Mine's just fighting and beating people up to defend myself" he laughed softly, shaking his head before he continued running. After the half hour, he was standing against a tree, panting heavily as he held his hand against his chest. "Damn! That was tough, but definitely better than the first time"
WHen she asked about pushups, it actually wasnt that bad. "I can do at least thirty. You know those large glass bottles of chemicals dont lift themselves. So I guess you could say I have at least been working my arms" he stretched out his arms and wobbled them a little before kneeling to the ground. Luckily he had such a professional teacher. He was going to get fit in no time. And he was sure that Charrie wasnt depressed. His plan was if she had her mind on him, it was off everything else, and that was a great thing.
He started working on his arms and his core, barely making it past the first reps. He was tired from the run and was nearly going to pass out. "CHarrie. C-Can we take a break....or go back now. Im so exhausted" he laid back against the grass and just tried to take a breather. She had been pushing him to the limits and his body just couldnt take anymore today.
“I’m proud of you, Mase. For trying hard. Just remember, you’re not just doing this for me but yourself,” She smiled at him. Even if it was slowly, they would get better until they didn’t have anything to worry about. Then, the better days would come. They wouldn’t live with their issues forever. If she focused on the great things that could happen if they did stop harming their bodies, than she wouldn’t think so much cutting. There was ways to stop it. As long as she didn’t feel depressed or those thoughts in her head overtook her, she’d be fine. She didn’t think testing chemicals on her would be safe. As much as she trusted Mase, she did not trust things that were mostly dangerous.
“No it’s fine...” She sighed “Yea, I do feel better now.” Then she heard about him testing it on himself. He was joking right? She stared at him with wide eyes. If he did, he would who knows what he could have done to himself “You’re joking, right? He was right but it still didn’t stop her dislike of chemicals. She couldn’t understand them, she never would. Science was never one of her strengths-actually her weakest. Mase may have been weak in her world but she was weak in his. She could never handle a battle of using her brains unless it involved strategies in a fight.
“Good, I wouldn’t ever want to get lost,” She sighed in relieve. They jogged for a couple of minutes only having to slow down again. She didn’t want to push him too hard. He needed to go on his own pace. Only when he’d start being lazy, she’d push. As the walked she decided to mention it, hoping it would boost up his confidence. She kept on reminding him and insulting him that he was weak.
“I just realized something. You may be weak in my world but I’m weak in yours. You always won in academics, I won in fights. So I guess you have no reason to feel weak, even if I call you that. I really suck at your stuff after all...” She admitted. They were actually pretty equal. Both of them were better at something different. Brains and brawns, who knew she’d be the brawns.
After walking, she had to get him to run again. He may have been tired out but it would be worth it. When he got too tired, she slowed down. Once they finished running they had to do some other stuff. She wasn’t really that tired. She was put through a lot of exercise back in the three years.
“Mase, out of curiosity. Exactly how many push ups can you do?” She raised an eyebrow. She was hoping not to hear the numbers from zero to ten. But she couldn’t say anything about that. She didn’t expect him to be able to do a lot. It was like expecting her to be good at chemistry. Although, she was pretty sure it took some good talent to screw up as bad as her during the classes.
THe thought of testing a chemical on Charrie was very risky. He knew exactly what it did, but she was right. It was best not to put anything on her at all. And he didnt want to risk her life either, maybe just keeping her mind occupied with something else was their best bet. Still, he didnt understand why Charrie was so afraid of him and the lab. He really wished she had a little more confidence in his work. He was a scientist after all. Everything in the lab inspired him. Ever since that day when Charrie caused an explosion in class, he was fascinated. Just combining a few simple natural chemicals can cause the world to end. He loved trying to figure out what was something new he could invent. It was endless and Mason loved it when things were like a puzzle.
"Okay okay. Tree bad. We wont climb any trees, but Ill at least try to do some pull ups and crunches. I want to get those abs for you" he smiled at the thought. Usually if Charrie wanted something he could buy it for her. But he couldnt by physical activity. He had to do it himself. It required hardwork and if it wasnt for her, he probably wouldnt even be doing it. But he wanted to be healthy as well.
"Im sorry Char. I was just thinking. I didnt mean to scare you or anything, your safety is priority number one. Not all chemicals are bad you know. All those medicines that people make. Look how that painkiller stopped the fever. I bed you're feeling good right now arent you?" he was glad he could heal away her sickness at least. "Im wont do any experiments on you. I will test it out on myself first" he joked, knowing that he would always use a lab rat. But sometimes he did use a few chemicals to see what it would to to him. It wasnt the smartest idea, but he would always know first hand what to do differently.
"Okay half an hour. Got it!" he was taking in a deep breath, trying to stall the run. DOnt worry Char, I have a tracking device on my wrist. It shows me where the tree house is. We wont get lost" he assured her. Plus he had his phone. Dale could locate them as well.
WHen she pushed him, he was a little surprised, but she was right. He needed to get going. So he spent the next few minutes running down a random path. It was hard after about the first fifteen, but he started to walk for a moment and catch his breath. Having Charrie beside him to root him on was more helpful than he thought. This was harder than he thought it's be. Doing this everyday didnt seem fun at all.
The mention of gym bothered her. She always hated gym through the years of school. Sure, she beat up most of the girls and guys in soccer, baseball, self defense and running but it was no fun. She got lazy and decided to sit most of time out. That dropped her mark but she could care less. Gym just bored her out of her mind because there felt no real challenge to it. It was the same sports they did every year after all. Charrie didn’t think he could handle trees. She had trouble getting down from them if she went a good height. She got stuck plenty of times.
“Maybe it’ll be better but I won’t make any promises. Mase, if I get stuck up a tree with you, we’re not going down until someone finds us. Good, let’s see if you can last a full half hour this time,” She smiled back. She wasn’t exactly going to go easy on him. This time, she will follow in his pace. It wasn’t about her exercising now, she was pretty much fit. He needed it. She waited patiently for him outside and then he finally arrived. Then she heard what he had in mind. Her eyes just popped. Was he being serious? Putting a chemical on her!?
“Mase, I’m not your lab rat!” She had to remind him “Besides, even if I put it on my wrists, if I can’t cut there, I’ll find another place. Can’t dumb a chemical all over me... I know you’re just trying to help but you said ‘testing.’ I don’t want any experiment to be done on me.” She couldn’t help but freak out on it. When she thought of chemicals she thought of explosions and toxins that killed people. Her thoughts tended to be violent and because of incidents she had playing around with chemicals in the science classroom when she was forced to-she couldn’t look at it any other way. In her defense, the teacher left the classroom unwatched for a good five minutes. Apparently, that was enough for her younger self to get bored and see what would happen if she combined some stuff together. She was pretty sure Mason knew about one of those incidents. She had more than one.
“Not running, if I ran you wouldn’t be able to catch up. We’re just going to jog for a half an hour. If you need to take a breath, just start walking for a bit and start jogging again. This time I won’t leave you out of my sight-at all. Oh and please make sure you know how to get us back,” She hoped. She slightly stretched and once she was done that. She pushed him from behind to get him start jogging and then start jogging-more like speed walking beside him. She looked around the scenery “I really love nature... It’s so much better than being in the city with all that noise.”
The fact that Mason was a chemist did mean that he could make medicines and sell them. He was doing that. He made his healing water and that would be on the market soon enough. Once the town's people figured out how much faster it healed wounds than ordinary antibiotics, he would be rich. Probably richer than his parents. But that wasnt the only reason why he was doing it. Yes the money was great, but he would be recognized and he would be famous. Those people that looked down on him, his parents, Heath, his friends, Prim. Well not anymore they wont. As soon as his healing water hits the market, he knew his life would change. People will see how amazing he was just like how Charrie saw him.
As soon as Mason finished washing up the dishes, he headed into the room. He slipped into his basketball shorts and into a wifebeater before walking up to her. "I hope it's more fun than a gym. I dont think I could handle climbing the trees, but as long as you're with me...I think I can do it. I can definitely do the running. I know Ill last more than ten minutes" he grinned determined to make her proud. To get back into shape and to gain some muscle. It was much better than being seen in the city and almost having the chance to lose your life from her father.
When he started heading down the elevator, he chuckled and shook his head "Well I had a feeling that I could help you out with the wrist thing. It'll have to wait until we got back though. I know a chemical that would be nearly indestructible from practically any knife. We can test it out on on your wrists. Dont worry. It doesnt stick to skin. It can come off easily" he tried to tell her. Hopefully she wasnt freaked out, but he wanted to help her.
"Okay so what are we starting with? A nice mile? Or just running?" he was starting to get unexcited since it was actually getting closer to running.
“Yea... That wouldn’t have been good,” She admitted “Still, that pill better work, for the sake of both of our lives.” He was good at chemistry, meaning he had to be really good at figuring things out like this. Why was he doing weapons and such when he could have just come up with different medicine and gain a lot of money? Well, anything he wanted to do, he could do it. That reminds her, she needed to go get a job or start that film she had in mind. She liked living on her parent’s money and such but she didn’t like taking advantage of them. She’d rather just come up with the money on her own. Of course, she had to borrow some to do that... As he pointed out running around the forest, she was going to mention that they could possibly get lost. Getting lost in the wilderness wasn’t a good one. There was a time in Russia she did have to sort of do some camping. It was hell. There was no electronics and no bathrooms. Otherwise, she didn’t mind camping too much and she loved standing in nature.
“We could, it’s more fun than doing it in a gym,” She smiled and then laughed “It’s more challenging. But, I don’t think you can handle climbing trees Mase. I can get up there, pretty high but getting down is a different story. As long as we don’t go too high, we should be fine. Unless you already know how to do it.” She was actually looking forward to it. Sure, it would be simpler to go into the city but if they were going in there they had to be careful. If they saw Mason, they’d follow him to her. Getting away is fun, getting caught not so much. He didn’t seem as bad as last time she mentioned him. She didn’t know any other way to explain that they could get caught because he was the one trying to track her down.
“That’s good. I’m glad you’re not worried,” She smiled at him. She was just waiting for him to finish up eating. She was such a pig at times. She nodded at getting ready. She got up from the chair and then he got her curious about what he had meant. What was it? What might she not agree about? She raised an eyebrow.
“Okay, you should tell me what’s on your mind when I come back from changing though. Meet me outside than,” She told him. She didn’t like being left in the dark. She then changed into another pair of jeans and t-shirt that she brought along with her here. She tied up her hair and then took the elevator down. She wanted to come up with ways of what help he meant but couldn’t.
WHen she drank down the pill, he wasnt too worried anymore. Contraceptives worked at a good eighty percent. And not to mention the fact that increased the concentration. So he easily bumped it up to at least an eighty five or maybe even ninety percent that it would work. He wasnt too worried. "I dont think kicking harder would of helped at all. I would of probably had them removed if they didnt work, and that means...well...we wouldnt love each other the same. But you're right Char. No matter what happens, we can figure things out together. I know we can" he leaned over, hugging his arms around her, assuring her that nothing would go wrong. As long as they had each other, he would try and make sure neither of them were murdered.
The thought of going out did worry him. He didnt want any chance of anyone ever finding them at all. If they went back to the city, maybe Heath would track them down, or worse, her father holding a shotgun looking around town for him. He didnt want to risk anything. "You're right Charrie. We should probably stay here. I could always just run around the forest with you. I know how to get back to the tree house anyways. Maybe we can even do some pull ups on the branches, or climb the trees for core and arms. We can use it as a gym?" he suggested, hoping that maybe she could train him in a place like this. It could work. They'd kill two birds with one stone. He would Gain strength and they could both break their habits with each other's company.
When she mentioned HEath, he sighed a little, honestly not feeling too bad anymore. He felt okay. After last night he didnt doubt that she would ever be with Heath again. Last night was beyond amazing and no matter what happened, he wouldnt regret it. "It's okay Char. Im not all that worried anymore. I know you love me" he winked and blew her a kiss before sitting down and starting to eat up the breakfast he made. "Let's get ready then. We can work and play. I also have an idea that could help you....although Im not sure you'll agree to it so willingly" he smirked.
As she drank the pill down she watched him over her eyelids walking around the room. He really seemed worried that she was going to be. It was just the day after. It was too soon to worry about something that would probably never happen. She trusted that this pill would work anyway. It had to. If it didn’t than she’d be angry at both of them. She just couldn’t afford to let something like that happen. The hell that would be brought up if it happen. Damn, they should really think things thru before they go and have sex without thinking of the consequences. All those health classes for nothing! Their father’s would kill them! Their mothers could go either way. But otherwise, it was safe to say that they will be killed if she did get pregnant. It was too fast. She didn’t want to hit fast forward-if it ever happens.
“I should have kicked harder than,” She groaned. She became worried when he heard that the nurse said he was okay. That couldn’t be good. She felt the color drain out of her skin. Now, she was scared of it. Ugh, and she thought this morning was going to be a good one. She didn’t think she had anything to worry about. Now she had to worry about the consequences of sleeping with each other and not thinking about it. She just trusted that this would work and nothing terrible was going to happen. She just had to calm them both down. He seemed calm when he hugged her but they weren’t out of the loophole yet.
“Mase, although I don’t think it’ll happen. There’s still a chance. But even so, we’ll figure it out,” She promised and then they were on talking about food. She loved food. She loved him for cooking her food. She thought about heading into town but she was pretty sure Heath was going to look for her in every inch of the town. If they went any places they went before, she could be caught. If they went into a familiar car, and Heath tracked it down-well she was screwed. She’d be shifted right into therapy and at this point, she actually believed she didn’t need it. The thoughts weren’t coming in her head right now. She was worrying about the after effects of sleeping with each other. As long as things went normal for her, then they were good.
“Bacon and eggs sounds great,” She assured and as they walked into the kitchen “I want to get out but if we’re going to go to town, we have to find a car that Heath doesn’t recognize to get out of here. We can’t go to places we normally go either. He’ll track me down. Trust me... I know how hard he tries to track me down.” Then she caught her mouth remembering she wasn’t supposed to talk about Heath. Maybe this was an exception. She frowned and had to apologize “Sorry... It just came out. I didn’t meant to mention him. I just wanted to explain that we had to be careful.” She should really watch her mouth more.
“I like the idea of you going to the gym though,” She admitted “I want you to get healthy and fast. Just like how I want to stop myself from getting sick or injuring myself.” Then the food was put on the table. She sat down and smiled at it. She looked up at him “Thanks for the food. You really are the best boyfriend.” Well, anyone who made her food was the best but Mase was at the top out of all of them, simply because she loved him. She started to eat and it didn’t take her long to finish up.
