Penny sat in the recliner with her hands holding her head. Billy has just told her everything. She couldn't bring herself to believe any of it.
"So you're Dr Horrible..." She said softly.
Billy nodded even though it wasn't a question. How could he be so stupid. He had just gotten her back and now he was losing her all over again.
"All those TV reports, and the newspaper articles, and the stories about the fights with Captain Hammer. That was you the whole time...." She looked up at him with an unreadable expression.
Billy and Penny raced through the park, side by side, trying to get out of the downpour. They got to the sidewalk and ran with all the other civilians trying to do the same. Billy motioned to Penny to turn left. They rounded the corner and sprinted towards the small gray apartment. "My home's just over here! We can wait out the rain!" He yelled to her. She nodded and smiled at him.
"Race ya!" She yelled playfully as she zoomed past him.
"Not fair!" He laughed and ran after her.
What this considered a date? They were just walking in the park but they were walking together. Dr Horrible stood infront of the small mirror, trying for the first time in weeks to run a comb through his terribly matted hair. He ended up getting it stuck in the back of his head and hopping around trying to get it free.
There was a knock at the door just as Dr Horrible was beginning to contemplate shaving his head. Moist struggled with the door knob then burst into the room
He laughed at him quietly as he tugged at the comb. "Aww Doc." Moist said as he went over to help....
Dr Horrible stared at Penny. She looked very much alive. She was hooked up to a heart moniter and an IV and she had a copy of Gone With The Wind laying in her lap. She was still smiling at him with the same sweet smile she had before it happened.
Part of Dr Horrible wanted to run out the door and go lock himself in the janitors closet. But the other part of him was about to burst from the happiness he felt right now. "P-penny." He stuttered as he hobbled into her room and shut the door, almost smashing his finger.
Dr Horrible sped down 17th avenue and raced around the corner. He cut off some guy in a Honda CRV resulting in some colorful language being shouted out of the windows.
"S-sorry, sorry..." He mumbled quietly as he sped through a yellow light and almost skidded into a telephone pole.
Moist sat in the passenger side with a death grip on the handle mounted to the roof of the small silver car.
"Geez man! Slow down! If we die you won't ever get to see her!" He yelled as he frantically fastened his seatbelt.
Dr Horrible sat in his oversized chair with his lab coat undone, running his finger over the armrest. If he rubbed it one way, it felt scratchy, and when he rubbed it the other way, it felt smooth. It wasn't a very interesting thing but it kept his mind off of..... what had happened a few weeks ago.
Recently he'd switched out his blood red lab coat for his old white one. He liked that one better. The buttons wernt so tight around his neck.
Billy was gone too. Dr Horrible couldn't go back to ever being him after what happened. The main reason he put on that act was so he...
(Authors note: this story takes place before Penny died. I thought of this when I turned one of my own shirts pink the other day! Lol! Hope you enjoy! :3 :3 )
Dr Horrible (disguised as Billy) carried his basket of dirty clothes to the washing machine that was only three away from Penny's. He watched her as she threw the last of her clothes into the wash. She gently shut the lid and deposited several coins into the slot. The washing machine clattered to life as Penny walked to a nearby dryer and took out some clothes to fold.
Captain Hammer pranced around the van singing "Everyone's a hero". It really got annoying after the 14th time. All the animals were sprawled out around the van with their paws/flippers over their ears, wishing they could be with skipper in the sound proof drivers cab.
Lexii turned to Dr Horrible "Does he HAVE an off switch?!?" she asked with bloodshot eyes. He shook his head and pressed his paws tighter over his ears.
Lexii nudged Rico with her elbow. "Got anything to make him SHUT UP?" she asked. Rico thought...
Don't question my methods, or WHY, but i'm deleting my account. I haven't found Moist, and Hammer's never here, so it's pointless to stay. That plus i have my personal reasons for leaving. I'm sorry, Lexii... You too Hammer. It's a tough decision, but it's one i have to make.....
Sincerely Yours, Dr Horrible. ( aka William Harris)
