NOTE: This story is a sequel to Night Walker


Past:

Jason was at the academy with his friends, training as usual. However, for the past week, Jason's performance was a little off key.

"Hey Jas, what's the matter? For the past few days you've seemed distracted."

Hercules asked. Jason looked at his friend for a moment.

"Nothing much."

He replied. Hercules shrugged of disbelief.

"Come on. I think you are forgetting who you're talking to. You can tell me anything."

He claimed. Jason considered what Hercules said for a moment and sighed.

"It just isn't the same without her."

He confessed.

"You mean Jenna?"

Hercules clarified. Jason nodded.

"I know I must sound ignorant, but you just knew her for a day."

Hercules continued.

"Yeah, I know...But the thing is. when I'm with her, I feel like I knew her all my life."

Jason exclaimed.

"I don't know what to say. You can't travel through time."

Hercules replied, taping his friend on his shoulder.

"That's it!"

Jason cheered. Confused and alarmed, Hercules removed his hand.

"What? What's it?"

He asked. Without answering, Jason started to walk away. Just then, Iolaus came along, watching Jason walk out of the room.

"What's up with Jason?"

He asked. Hercules sighed.

"I don't know...But I think I gave Jason a bad idea."

He replied.

***

Jason was in the library, researching on time traveling, when Iolaus came in the room.

"Uh, hey Jas."

He claimed, not really knowing what to say.

"Hey..."

Jason replied in a distracted tone.

"You know, Hercules told me what you've been up to."

Iolaus continued. Jason scattered through the scrolls, ignoring his friend.

"Look, we both know that this isn't going to happen. You can't go travel through time."

Iolaus blurted out. Jason looked up to his friend with determind eyes.

"If Jenna did it, why can't I?"

He asked.

"I don't know! but what I do know, is that you belong here, and Jenna belongs wherever she is. You should stop lying to yourself."

Iolaus cried. Jason looked at his friend for a moment and sighed.

"You're right. What was I thinking?"

He claimed, laying his head on the table. Iolaus padded Jason on the back.

"Love hurts."

He claimed. Jason raised his head a bit and saw his answer starring at him.

"I got it. I found a way to see Jenna again!"

He cheered. Jason grabbed the scroll and ran out of the room, with Iolaus following behind.

"Jason! Wait up!"

He cried. but Jason continued his run. Finally he stopped outside.

"Would you tell me what's the deal?"

Iolaus asked. Jason handed Iolaus the scroll for him to see. At the same moment, Hercules came to the scene.

" What's up?"

He asked. Jason pointed to the scroll Iolaus was reading. Hercules read it and moments after, the two guys were looking at Jason.

"You're kidding. Don't tell me you're going to go through with this."

Hercules claimed.

"Why not. It's just a couple words and boom, we're there."

Jason cheered.

"But it's dangerous. You don't know where we'll end up."

Hercules argued.

"Hercules is right, I don't think saying; Guide me threw the gates of time. Will do anything."

Iolaus cried. Then, a strong wind started to blow. The trio knew the ritual.

"Oops."

Iolaus claimed. After that, the three boys got sucked up in the tunnel of time.

***

Present:

Jenna was in the car with her mother, driving from an appointment.

"So, how was your session?"

Her mother asked.

"Not bad, I said a phrase he talked the whole time. The everyday thing."

Jenna replied.

"You know, it's for your own good."

Jenna nodded. She looked out the window and shrugged.

"I know, I know. Seeing Dr. Shrink is supposed to help me. But I'm fine now. You see? I'm not blabbing any stories about traveling through time. I just don't get it why I have to continue this."

Jenna exclaimed. When they got home, Jenna ran up to her room. She walked to her secret hidding place in her closet and pulled out an amulet. She leaned on her wall and looked at it.

"I gotta leave this behind."

She whispered. Jenna then left her room and went outside for a walk.

***

When the trio regained notion of time, they found themselves in front of a weird looking building.

"Wow! How far in the future do you think we went?"

Hercules asked.

"I don't know. Maybe we should ask the person who lives in that house."

Jason suggegsted. With a nod, the three guys entered the home. They looked around with fascination. The wonders that surrounded them made them gasp.

Looking around, Iolaus saw a picture on a table.

"Amazing. These paintings are so small."

He claimed. Just then, they heard someone coming in the house.

"What do we do?"

Iolaus asked.

"Hide!"

Hercules cried in an alarmed voice. On that word, they started to run around and went in a closet.

"Mom? Dad?"

A voice cried. The steps came closer and closer, until it stooped in front of them. Then, the door quickly opened. When Jenna saw the three guys in her closet, she let out a loud cry. At the same time, her three visitors let out a cry. Jenna then closed the door, hearing someone let out a little cry of pain.

~~~~~***~~~~~

"This can't be happening!"

Jenna whispered to herself. She took deep breaths, trying to calm her racing heart. Jenna reopened the door and saw they were still in the closet.

"Uh, hi."

Iolaus claimed. Jeena rolled her eyes.

"Get out of there."

She cried.

"Are you mad or something?"

Hercules asked. Jenna gave them a fake smile.

"Of course not. I mean, I finally moved on and now this? This just bites."

She exclaimed in a sarcastic tone.

"Jenna, there is a perfectly good reason why we're here."

Iolaus started.

"Oh really? I'm all ears."

Jenna replied. Iolaus backed up a little before he answered.

"It's all Jason's fault!"

He cried. Jenna shook her head of disbelief.

"These things can only happen to me."

She mumbled. Then, Jenna started to walk upstairs to her room, followed be the three visitors.

"You guys are going back from where you came from. There is no way you are staying here."

Jenna exclaimed. She then entered her room and started searching for the amulet.

"This is a nice room."

Jason claimed, not knowing what else to say. Iolaus started to play with the radio and accidently turned it on. The music coming from the box made him jump.

"That's pretty cool, music coming from a box."

He claimed. Jenna turned the radio off and took a moment to think.

"Oh no..."

She mumbled.

"What?"

Hercules asked.

"I threw the amulet away."

Jenna confessed.

"So. All we have to do is to look for it...again."

Iolaus suggested.

"We can't. I have no idea where it landed. We just have to look for another way."

Jenna explained. After a moment of silence a light turned on in Jenna's mind.

"How did you guys got here?"

She asked. Hercules took out the scroll and started to read it.

"Then, Iolaus said a certain phrase."

He explained.

"That's it?

Jenna asked. The others all nodded in a sychronized way.

"Well, just say it."

She said. Iolaus did so and waited for a result. However, there was none. Jenna sighed and fell on her bed.

"This could not be worse."

She mumbled. Then, Jenna heard someone coming in. She ran to the stairs to see who it was.

"Oh no, not this."

She whispered in a despaired voice. Her friend, Billie came over. Jenna had forgotten she was supposed to study with her.

"Hey Jenna! I got the books, the snacks! It's time to cram for that big math test!"

Billie cheered. Without being seen, Jenna ran back to her room.

"You guys gotta hide."

She cried. However, Jenna wasn't quick enough, because Billie was behind her.

"Wow! Where did you meet them? They're just a bunch of hotties."

Billie asked. Jenna jumped and turned to her friend.

"Oh, Hi Billie."

She said in an uncomfortable voice. Iolaus took a step foreward and grabbed Billie's hand.

"Hi. I'm Iolaus...I'm from the future."

He claimed in a flirting tone.

"Iolaus, Shut-up!"

Jenna cried. Billie looked at her friend with a stunned face.

"That means, you were telling the truth...and that scar, you didn't do it yourself."

She claimed. Jenna nodded.

"This is so cool! We have to bring them to the dance tonight!"

Billie cheered.

"No way! They'll stick out like a sore thumb!"

Jenna protested.

"Come on. We'll just borrow some cloths from your brother."

Billie argued. Jenna didn't budge.

"No, this will just blow up in my face, like it always does."

She claimed. Nevertheless, minutes later, Jason, Iolaus and Hercules were dressed to blend in.

"I can't believe I'm going for this."

Jenna mumbled.

"Look on the bright side, they are hot in those cloths."

Billie exclaimed.

"I don't feel hot."

Hercules claimed.

"It's just an expression."

Jenna explained.

"Let's go out and party!"

Billie cheered. Half an hour after Jenna, Billie, Iolaus, Jason and Hercules were at a dance club.

"Is this fun or what!"

Billie cried over the music.

"Yeah, a real hoot."

Jenna replied in a sarcastic tone. Then, Billie grabbed Iolaus and went to the dance floor. Hercules, on the other hand, engaged in a conversation with a girl at the bar.

"I'm sorry for all the problemes we caused."

Jason cried.

"It's not your fault.It's Billie's fault."

Jenna replied with compassion.

"No, it's my fault. It's because I wanted to see you again."

Jason confessed.

"What?"

Jenna asked. She didn't hear the last phrase Jason said.

Then, a strong odor came in the room. It was like the smell of rotten flesh.

"Do you smell that?"

Jenna asked.

"Yeah. I don't know, but I think I smelled it somewhere else before."

Jason claimed.

"The last time I smelled something like this was when..oh no"

Jenna cried in an alarmed voice.

"What?"

Jason asked.

"We gotta get the others."

Jenna claimed in a nervous tone. However, Jenna wasn't fast enough. Becuase on stage, where the band would be, stood her worst nightmare.

"You don't just kill me and walk away!"

Cried the monster like person.

"Ganty..."

Jason whispered.

~~~~~***~~~~~

The music stopped when Ganty made his entrance. Billie and Iolaus joined Jenna and Jason. Hercules came as well.

"Friends of yours?"

Billie asked, looking at Ganty with a confused expression on her face.

"You're supposed to be dead! In case you don't remember, I killed you."

Jenna cried back to Ganty.

"Oh, I remember. That's why I'm here for my revenge."

Ganty replied. While Jenna and Ganty had their friendly conversation, everyone in the building evacuated, leaving Jenna, Jason, Iolaus, Hercules and Billie with Ganty and his zombie friends.

"We are going to finish what we started."

Ganty claimed. Jenna, on the other hand, smiled at the proposition.

"With pleasure."

She replied. Then, Jenna joined Ganty on stage. Without hesitating, she threw the first punch.

"My warriors, attack!"

Ganty cried out. Immidiately, the zombies started the fight with Jenna's friend.

"Now, its just you and me."

Ganty claimed.

"I feel so loved."

Jenna replied.

"Shut-up and fight!"

Ganty cried in anger. Jenna beamed.

"You read my mind..."

She cried. Ganty, anxious to get revenge, grabbed Jenna and gave her continuous kicks in the stomach. He then threw her across the room, making her land at the bar. The sound of breaking glass covered the sound of the fighters. Ganty, thinking victory was in his grasp, started to laugh.

"Victory is mine!" Surrender now!"

He cried.

"There is no way Jenna can get killed that easily."

Billie cried with sadness. Out of the blue, Jenna jumped up.

"That hurts, I'll give you that."

She claimed. Doing flips, Jenna joined Ganty once more. She then gave him her strongest punch, making her hand go threw his stomach. Jenna removed her hand and made a disgusted face.

"That was the most disgusting thing I ever did."

She mumbled. However, Ganty didn't fall. He simply looked down at the hole. He then looked up at Jenna and slashed her face with his razor sharp nails.

Jenna touched the dripping blood from her face. The pain started to kick in and Jenna felt it.

"I can't break your neck, can't puch a hole in you. What the hell can I do?"

She cried in anger. Ganty started to laugh.

"Nothing! My zombies and I are going to take over the world!"

He cried with victory in his voice.

"Over my dead body!"

Jenna replied with anger in her voice.

"Consider it done."

Ganty claimed. Jenna looked around the room and saw a candle light. An idea crossed her mind. Therefore, Jenna turned to her friends.

"You guys get out of here!"

She cried.

"But what about you? I can't leave you here!"

Jason cried back.

"That's sweet and all, but just get out of here! It's not going to be pretty."

Jenna yelled. On that note, Jenna's friends left. When she saw they left, Jenna made a dash for the candle. She then ran to the bar and rubbed some alcohol on a piece of cloth. She then started to throw the cloth at the zombies, making them soak in the alcohol. Jenna then poured the drink everywhere she could. Taking the candle, Jenna started to torch the place. The fire surrounded Ganty and was burning his friends.

Out of the fire, Jenna arrived with the candle in hand.

"Special delivery. From me to you!"

She cried. Then, Jenna planted the candle in Ganty's shoulder, letting him burn.

***

Jason watched the fire consume the building with horror. He wanted to go back for Jenna, but Hercules and Iolaus were holding him back.

"She's gone! There's no way Jenna could survive that fire!"

Hercules cried. Jason shook his head. He didn't want to believe Jenna was gone.

In the mist of sadness, a figure crawled out of the consuming fire. Jason saw Jenna coming out of the building and ran to her, so did the others.

"Are you alright?"

Billie asked.

"Remind me to never listen to you again."

Jenna whispered in a weak voice. She then closed her eyes, falling in some kind of sleep.

***

Everyone was now in Jenna's backyard, saying their goodbyes. Jason grabbed Jenna's arm and walked away from the others.

"I wanted to talk to you alone."

Jason explained. Jenna smiled.

"I'm all ears."

She replied. Jason took a deep breath, carefully picking his words.

"Look, all I wanted to know is where we stand with the us issue."

Jason confessed. At those words, Jenna lost her smile.

"There's no us Jason."

She explained.

"What do you mean? You don't love me? But, I can't believe that."

Jason exclaimed in a confused voicfe.

"Believe what you want. We just can't be together that's all."

Jenna finished. She then started to walk to her friends. However, Jason grabbed her arm.

"You don't just wake up one morning and stop loving someone, Jenna. Love is forever...Now tell me the truth!"

Jason cried. Jenna turned her back to Jason, her face was fludded in tears.

"I LOVE YOU! You're happy now? I love you. I hate you for it. Because I try not to, but I can't."

Jenna confessed.

"Then why can't we be together?"

Jason asked in a more calm voice.

"Because by the time we could be together, you'll be dust in the ground."

Jenna explained. Jason wanted to lean over for a kiss, but Jenna refused.

"It will only make it harder."

She replied. Jason nodded. The three guys went in a triangle and Iolaus recited the words. The strom started and Jenna couldn't take her eyes off Jason.

"God, it's worth the pain."

She claimed. Just before the hole, Jenna threw herself around Jason's neck, giving him a pasion filled kiss.

Billie saw the hole opening and reached for Jenna. Then, in a swift movement, the storm stopped, letting place to a starry night...

THE END
