Volk sat, tied to a chair. Waiting for Sergei Poliakoff, known widely as a mercurially mooded murderer, would have been nerve wracking for a lesser man, but Volk was raised in Siberia. He had waited, half buried underneath the rotting corpse of an elk, for three days time, in order to kill a wolf with his knife. Also, he was an old man. He had little left to live for.
Sergei walked in, ostentatiously flouting a pistol. "Do you know why you are here, Volk?"
"Yes, but I'll humor you. Pray tell."
"I have killed men for less than that amount of disrespect! You are here because you failed to kill your target last month. Do you have an explanation?"
"I will spare you the trouble of proving that I am lying, and just say that I could not. Everyday my eyesight grows dimmer. And I could not kill an innocent girl."
"Idiot! Waste! Do you not know that the whole purpose, the only reason you continue to exist, is because you can kill whomever, whenever I tell you! This targe
Too late (Part 1) Code LyokoJeremy was staying late at the factory, as usual. He still hadn't found a way to free Aelita from her virtual prison, and he felt he wasn't even getting close. However far away, though, the prisoner was always there to cheer him up. "Don't worry, Jeremy," she'd started one night, "I've waited ten years to get out of here-what are a few more weeks? You shouldn't work so hard."Too late (Part 1) Code Lyoko by HeWalksInBeauty
"But Aelita, the longer we wait, the more likely X.A.N.A. will spring another trap-one we can't escape." She looked like a puppy one had spoken crossly to. Jeremy, secretly filled with shame, spoke up "Have you been keeping up in your studies of earth?" She replied brightly "Oh, yes! I've recently analyzed so much data from poems and stories. There is a recurring theme that I don't understand."
"Well what is it?" Jeremy inquired, confident he could explain anything she wondered about. Well, everything but one thing. The only thing he couldn't explain to her was-"Something called: Love" Aelita bluntly stated. She c
Too late (Part 2) Code LyokoThe scanner opened. The profound emptiness inside it was matched by the same thing inside Jeremy. The only thing left inside was a strand of pink hair, which he promptly picked up and stared at, tears welling in his eyes. As the kids stood around the scanner, they waited for someone to say something to quell the silence, but no one was sure what to say. "Here is death!" the empty scanner seemed to insolently proclaim. How can anyone explain the feelings of a death of a young person? All their potential, vanished in an instant or poured out slowly on the battlefield. And in the middle of the ugly, whirling, infinite specter of death, Jeremy and his friends were thrown into the center of it with only a few seconds warning. Yumi pet her hand on Jeremy's shoulder. "There was nothing you could have done," she offered. "No," he said slowly, as if every word cut his mouth as it came out, "You're wrong. Last night, I was a few hours away from finishing the materialization program. I let AelitaToo late (Part 2) Code Lyoko by HeWalksInBeauty

The gang stood around Jeremy, who was at the terminal. The moment they'd been waiting for for more than 2 years had arrived. They had finally defeated X.A.N.A. As Jeremy was about to shut down the computer, Odd piped up, "Einstein, why don't we just turn it off downstairs with that fancy switch?" Jeremy rolled his eyes and repeated, "Ugh, for the last time, Odd: Doing it from the booth will ensure that all the files Aelita and I have created will remain uncorrupted." Jeremy was out of his chair now. "Besides, the shutdown program is already-" He never finished the sentence. As he spoke, a bolt of lightning had shot out of the computer and planted itself in his chest. "Jeremy!" Everyone shouted at once. Aelita flitted over and kneeled next to him, cradling his head in her arms. Ulrich checked his pulse. "It's faint...but it is there," he concluded, "He is going to die if we can't get him to the E.R. in time." Aelita turned pale. She was staring at the monitor, where the h

Jeremy bent over the keys on his computer. It was a cold, clear, early autumn afternoon in France. It was beautiful this time of year, but Jeremy, hunched in his grotto, barely noticed it. He was far too busy working on an anti-virus for his...best friend. He jumped up with a start, however, when a fusillade of knocks bombarded his door. He scarcely murmured a "Come in" when Aelita stormed in, took him by the arm, and marched him outside, nearly shouting "Jeremy! You need to see this!" She had dragged him into the middle of the woods before she stopped. The trees were flamboyant reds, oranges, and yellows. The air was deliciously cool. The sky was absurdly blue. "What is it, Aelita?" Jeremy grumbled, slightly annoyed at being interrupted. Aelita stared at him incredulously, and said "The leaves! The breeze! The sky! Everything is so pretty!" Jeremy remembered that this was her first fall in remembrance. This was all new
