No reviews. I'm not that surprised. But Jewel and I love this story, so we're continuing it.
This is a filler chapter…Jewel says we need one, I agree.
"You're kidding me! We've been in New York for two days and we're leaving already?" Eagle Eye complained to Hawk for the millionth time.
"Well, not every place can be Vegas, you know." Replied Hawkeye, trying to keep her cool.
"Why were we even here, anyway?" Eagle Eye was beginning to sound very much like a petulant five-year-old.
"We had to talk to JahJah! How many times do I have to explain this to you? Don't make me put a muzzle on you and stick you in a cage!" shouted an exasperated Hawkeye, earning herself many stares from bewildered bystanders. But hey, this is New York. Weirder things have happened.
"Ever heard of phone?" Eagle Eye yelled back, equally frustrated.
"For the last time, JahJah doesn't talk on the phone! We have a system of animals: 3 birds, a fox and a squirrel. They bring messages to JahJah and then we go to New York to meet. Now, we're going to Paris, because JahJah's contacts say Dr. Bob is in the Eiffel Tower! Okay?" Hawk exclaimed.
"That's stupid! It wastes fuel, which is bad for the environment. Oh wait, I forgot, you don't care about the environment!"
"You wanna go, huh?" shouted Hawk, slipping into her fighting position and balling her fists. Eagle Eye's answer however was completely unexpected.
"…Go where?" she asked, deadpan and totally serious.
Hawkeye facepalmed, she knew she was only wasting energy and time trying to explain the terms of the 21st century. Doing a complete 360 on tactics, Hawkeye calmly led the still befuddled Eagle Eye to the plane with promises of sugar plums and stuff.
Whoa, whoa, sugar plums? You did NOT promise me sugar plums! Do I look like a little child in a Christmas poem to you?
Well, you act so much like one, so forgive me if I can't help but think of you as one.
Whatever, let's get back to the story.
There was an awkward silence between the girls as they rode the plane. Apparently Eagle Eye was still bummed out that there was no sugar plums. Empty promises…what has the world come to?
"So, not to be stereotypical or anything, but you don't look…you know, Indian-ish."
Eagle Eye smirked. "Wow, nothing gets by you, does it?"
"Nope" Hawk replied, popping the p.
The blonde adopted Indian sighed. "Well, it all started about 18 years ago…"
"Wait, wait. You don't have to tell me your life story."
Eagle Eye folded her arms. "I've already started, so you might as well sit back, it's pretty long."
The Army Sergeant groaned as she began. "What did I get myself into?"
"I don't know my parents…my real ones I mean. They abandoned me when I was a few days old, in the forest. I would have died, had it not been for my saving grace, a grey wolf named Sunrise. She kept me alive until the Delaware Indian tribe found and adopted me. You guys in the Army hate me for not letting you build a bigger base, but the forest and the animals saved me. I have to return the favor. I can't let them die. That's why I'm here." Eagle Eye looked at Hawk at the end of her dramatic, chilling, heart-wrenching, Oscar-winning life documentary.
Hawkeye feigned sleep, snoring at her loudest. "Huh, you're done? Oh, look we're here!" she said as the plane landed.
Eagle Eye couldn't contain the anger in her and it came out in the form of a sharp punch to Hawk's jaw. She then stormed off the plane, without a word, leaving a stunned Army Sergeant to her thoughts.
"What did I do?" she thought. "Well, time to go and face the storm."
Ta-da! I'm just going to point out that Jewel writes for Hawkeye, so I'm not responsible for making her incredibly mean in this chapter…
Three hours to write. Three seconds to review. Really, if nothing else, review to wish me a happy belated birthday (it was the 28th). Flamers will be laughed at. Severely.
Next chapter: Confrontation!
