"I guess its hard for someone your age to take in." Blue sighed, "I wanted some more time...But.."

"YOU'RE GOING TO TURN ME INTO A DOLL?!" Private screeched in horror.

"Oh, don't take it like that Private. By making you a doll, you can be adorable forever." Blue spun around so he wasn't facing him.

"Blue..Stop..Please.." Private begged.

"Besides, being a doll gives you the excuse to wear anything you want. What would you like to be?"

'I don't know, Maybe, ALIVE?!' Private thought while inching towards the basement.

Blue turned around and was taken back to see Private inching away. "Private? Where are you going? Come back here!"

"No!"

"What?"

"I-I'm sorry..But..I DON'T WANT TO BE A DOLL!" Private screamed as he ran into the basement.

He shut the door and locked it. But at the bottom of the stairs, a door was locked.

"Where did this door even come from?!"

"Prrrivavvte!"

Private screamed hearing the familiar voice calling out to him creepily.

He gulped hearing banging at the door at the top.

"PRIVATE!"

The little penguin slammed against the door, "OPEN!"

"Babby brother, come baack-"

The younger screamed and slammed against the door. He froze hearing Blue's illusion powers firing at the door upstairs. Private ducked as the door from upstairs went flying down. He looked up in horror to see his brother at the top of the stairs smirking.

"You know better than to run away from your big brother!"

Private whimpered then struggled with the door. He finally opened the door and sped around the basement with Blue chasing him from behind. He nearly bumped into Ami.

"Private?"

Blue caught up panting,"Don't let him escape Ami!"

Fearing for his life, Private quickly went past Ami and slid away. He made sure they weren't catching up and hid under a table.

"Private!" Ami called but there was no answer.

"Where did Private go?" Blue asked.

"I don't know..."

"WHAT?!" Blue growled, his eyes filling with anger.

"I'm sorry, he must be here some-"

"USELESS!" Blue shot an illusion in Ami's side making her scream out in pain and fell over.

Blue ran back upstairs. Private crawled over to Ami. Private grabbed a bandage off the table and wrapped it on Ami's side.

"Thank you.." The mage breathed.

Private smiled slightly, "Its fine."

"You should hate me."

Private frowned, "Don't say that."

"I took away your brother, why wouldn't you hate me?"

"Ami...Let's get out togetah. We'll die if we stay here."

Ami nodded and started up the stairs with Private, along the way, she tripped and laid on the stairs painfully.

"Ami!"

"Keep going.." Ami coughed.

"No! I'm not leaving without you!"

"I'll be right behind you as soon as I regain my energy."

Private was silent as he ran into the main room and towards the door to get out of the house but something grabbed his feet causing him to trip. He lifted his upper body up and looked over only to see a blue aura around his feet. He looked up to see Blue towering over him.

"I think that's enough of the games, don't you?" He frowned, "I have to keep you still, hmm?"

Private whimpered. "Let go of me!"

"I didn't want to hurt you..Seems like I have no choice."

"No..Stop..Please.."

Blue smiled, "Just some medic work will fix the cuts."

"I just wanted to stay at home...I love you big brothah..." Private struggled to get through to him.

"Private..." Blue smiled wider, "Your suffering will end soon. So rest in peace..." Blue raised his flipper which was sparking with his power. "My dear baby brother. I LOVE YOU!"

Suddenly a icicle was thrown into Blue's chest causing a scream of pain. "Gha..."

Private gasped. "Blu..." "Pri..Big brothah..!"

Blue coughed out blood, "I..Love..You..Priv.."

Another icicle was thrown below the other icicle making him scream again then fell backwards.

"B..Blue..."

Private then screamed.

Ami then limped over. "Are you hurt?"

Private cried then hugged Ami tightly. "Blue isn't moving! Did he die?"

"I'm sorry...It was the only way I could save you."

"I..I guess its for the best..."

Suddenly Blue threw himself up with his sick smirk, he was about to fire an illusion but a sword was thrusted through his back. He fell on his stomach. The male with yellow feathers was standing behind Blue. "Well, I made it."

Private stared at him. "You saved us..Thank you."

"Well, he asked me to do it."

"You mean Kiki?"

"Mm-hm. Well you might want to get out of here. After all, I'm going to burn this house down."

Private gasped, "What?! But all my memories!"

"We need to make sure this never happens again."

/

Ami stared at the burning house. "Well its just us now."

"And Snow" Private added, pointing to the bird on his shoulder.

"Well I can't take care of you...And the daycare will not take care of you once they hear what happened...But..I do know there's a zoo in New York..I could take you there."

Private shrugged, "Okay."

Ami limped near a cliff, "Just tell me when you're ready to leave."

Private started following but then he noticed a book on the ground. He silently picked it up.

Some years later

"So Private how have you been?" Private was on the phone with Ami while watching the Lunacorns. "I'm fine, though Kowalski said I couldn't touch anything in his lab again aftah what happened to Rico." 'As if that stops me' Private thought with a smirk.

Ami chuckled, "What did you do?"

"Well I accidentally spilled something in Rico's drink, and after he drank it, he couldn't speak normally since. And Kowalski found out I took something from his lab and that's why."

Private smiled at the memory of Rico freaking out and screaming. He laughed at how he had faked worry.

"Uh, what's so funny Private?" Ami asked, feeling a little worried.

"Oh sorry, funny TV show." The younger lied, "Well I got to go!" Private hung up.

Ami put the phone down on the table, bit on her bottom lip and gazed up. "Private is kind of like you...Blue."


Yay! I finished it! So I'm gonna go now, byyye...
