Alex felt the rumbling through the door as the handle turned. His heart was slamming in his chest, demanding an explanation. Why would he agree to trust this… being… enough to not kill him or maim him as soon as the door was opened? He scuttled back a few extra feet (which only succeeded in getting him 6 inches further from the door) and landed backwards on his behind for his troubles.

That’s how Celeste came to find him when the door was open; sitting on the tile, looking pale and shaken, and probably more bruised than before. He swallowed shakily. She was still so close. And her gaze was far too familiar, like high school all over again, only this time, she was the one towering over him. It was eerie.

The woman claiming to be Celeste settled back on her heels, her knees bent and feet tucked beneath her.

“Are…. Are you ok, Alex?” She sounded absurdly shaken for someone in such a position of power. Alex’s fear came at him again in a wave; he hated sitting on the floor though, giving Celeste any more height over him than she already had, and he stood on shaky legs with his hands quivering to keep him balanced.

“No, I am not ok! It’s been five years… what the hell is going on?? Why on earth would I trust you—it shouldn’t even be possible for you to be here!” Alex’s yelling surprised Celeste, and she lifted her hands, palms out, like she was trying to comfort someone. Alex flinched backwards, and her hands dropped again. She looked over her shoulder at Neilson, but David was just standing on the counter, with his arms crossed tightly over his chest, watching. So she plunged on ahead.

“I don’t suppose you remember the IBA…” She searched Alex’s face for any recognition, but his features were too small to determine for sure. Damn, it was hard to read his face. Except for the fear; that was always horribly apparent. “I was basically drafted for the agency out of high school. You might remember the ceremony…. Anyway,” (Why the hell did I say that? ) “The Bureau was following the kidnappings, and then agent Neilson was taken—“ Here she motioned to the man on the counter—“and they implemented a really risky plan for retrieval; the injections for rapid growth and cell division wasn’t tested on humans very well. But… I messed up. I wasn’t supposed to get anyone else. The success of this was going to determine if more rescues would be attempted.”

 Alex took a moment to process what this meant, all while staring at the floor. But when he looked up again, he looked hurt, and angry.

“Are you saying that… if it wasn’t for an agent being kidnapped… that everyone that was taken would still be here?” His voice shook; he was livid. “Why don’t you just dump me back at that pet store, huh? No point in keeping me now! Right? If it hurts your mission!”

Celeste stared at him. But she’d had enough of this tiptoeing around, and trying to speak differently to him because of his situation. If he were of normal size, she would have put her hand on his shoulder, stared him in the eyes, and explained the situation to him calmly. But that was just too impossible right now, so she did what she could.

Without warning, Celeste extended her arms, pushed her feet out behind her, and lowered herself to her stomach, directly in front of Alex. His heart was scrambling up his throat and his stomach was in his toes. Her face was way too close. He felt exposed, but found himself unable to walk backwards and distance himself. She leveled her gaze with his, and it was like he couldn’t see anything except her eyes. She spoke to him then, in such a quiet, and rather calming voice that he doubted that even David could hear her. He could feel the vibration of her voice through the floor. The effect made him wonder if this was what it felt like to be hypnotized with one of this swinging pocket watches.

“I rescued you for that shop, Alex; despite the limit for new shoppers, and everything else.  And I’m not going to let them have you back. We’re all going to get out of here, and that is a promise.”

Alex was speechless. His knees buckled a little, and he stumbled backwards, but Celeste’s hand was right there to catch him. He hadn’t even seen her move. He stared up at her in shock.

“Swear it?”

“Swear it.”

She eased her hand from his back so that he would fall over, and slowly straightened back up to give him his space.

“Now… I’m guessing you don’t want to be on the floor anymore?”

Alex realized what she was saying just as he saw her hand in front of him, palm up. He swallowed, the gulp of anxiety getting lodged in his throat. She was giving him the choice, and it was something that he was definitely not used to. At his normal size, he had never worried about anything where his choice would be question; he was a young man, and athletic. But the sudden removal of his free will had broken him. And now, Celeste was giving it back, in a way. With a deep breath, he climbed on to her hand.

This time, the experience felt very different for the both of them. Alex was far more aware of Celeste’s pulse through her hand, but he was sitting up, and with his back straight while he balanced. Celeste’s finger curved up a little bit out of reflex, but she tried to give Alex as much space as she could while walking him back to the counter. He climbed off and cast a wary look at Agent David Neilson.

David reciprocated.

Alex frowned, and keeping one eye on David, spoke to Celeste.

“You said that you got me out of that… pet shop… despite limits for new owners. How exactly did you get me out?”

“Maybe you don’t remember everything… you were kind of out of it when we got you out. Don’t you remember who carried you out of the pet sto---“ Celeste stopped mid-sentence and stiffened, her eyes widening in realization.

Alex looked as pale as a sheet when he remembered the young face that had stared at him through his cage at the shop. His eyes met Celeste’s just as a very, very soft knock sounded from the outside of the hotel door.

David regarded them both from his spot on the counter, with his arms cross. “Yeah… I was wondering when you two would remember that.”

Ok, so things are a little less tense now... BUT AREN'T WE ALL FORGETTING SOMEONE??
*Dramatic music plays*

We're getting on the last legs of the story, guys. It was always a battle for me to figure out how to wrap up my loose ends. But we're so close!
There will be, at max, 4 or 5 more chapter left, and that's if they're all the length of the one above.
If I keep them as long as chapter 7, well be finished in about 3 more posts.
Hold on tight, it's gonna be a bumpy ride!

Thank you for your support <3

Celeste didn't even have time to celebrate being remembered as her shy, younger self; there was a little man on the table who had just lost his marbles from this new information.

“Are you SHITTING ME? Are you out of your MIND AGENT LATIFF?!” Senior Agent David Neilson was no longer sitting, oh no; somehow, even with his size he still managed to sound intimidating. Celeste actually flinched, and she just knew Alex did, too.

“Wait David, just hold on—“ but Neilson just went on like he hadn’t been interrupted, and he didn't take too kindly to being called by his first name, under the circumstances. It was almost like Celeste was back at the bureau again.

“You adopted the extra human because you KNOW HIM? What, did you have some sort of fucking fling together, back in the day? ZIP IT! I don’t care if the two of you were engaged—there is no excuse for your emotions and your past impeding on your work like this! And taking so long to get here… You were in deep before, but now…” Neilson took such a deep breath that his eyeballs seemed to bulge, and this was when Celeste couldn’t take it any longer. She was embarrassed, she was shy, but most importantly, she was pissed. She’d put up with Neilson for years, but she just couldn’t take it any longer. She straightened up and marched over to his section of counter top, using her new-found height to tower over the small  David Neilson.

“Look, you over-pompous windbag; I’ve had about enough out of you! Do you know what I went through to get here? No, of course not—you’ve got your head so far up your ass that you weren’t paying attention to the work by all the ‘little people’, and I think that should change! Do you even know what the process of those chemicals are? There’s a reason no one wanted this job; I was the first human test for this, did you know?!?!? It HURTS!” Her voice was getting louder, strained, and it was bordering on tearful, but she plunged on: “All of those skin cells multiplying at that rate, even spread out over a couple of days, was EXCRUCIATING!  Like healing from a third degree burn! Do you want to know why I “took so long getter here”? I was in the IC ward for 3 days, because the agency didn’t account for the extra size difference between animal test subjects and humans, and what that would mean for the cell multiplication! But of course, you would know this, because you are a POMPOUS, overbearing, self-important PIECE OF—“

Click.

Celeste froze where she was, at a very close distance to Agent Neilson. He had his back pressed against the suitcase, and for the first time, Celeste actually saw a glint of fear in his eyes. But the sound hadn’t come from him.

Shocked at her anger, Agent Latiff turned, pale-face to the door of the bathroom, which had just closed very slowly.

Alex was no longer on the counter.

Celeste’s eyes snapped back to David’s, the last of her color draining from her face.

“Oh God…” She whispered. What have I done?

 

Poor Alex had been frozen in fear during the start Giant’s rant – but thankfully, it hadn’t lasted long. He’d shimmied down the lamp chord and darted for the bathroom door as soon as he could. It was a decision he was sure he’d forget, but he was at a loss of what else to do; this was a far worse situation than normal. Not only was he with a new giant, but an insane one, as well; one who knew about his past, and he would have no more of it.

Plus, he was quite sure that this giant wasn’t registered for two humans; maybe, if he could get himself found, he’d be returned to the shop…

Thank God for cheap hotel doors, he thought, pushing at the lightweight (in comparison to what it could be, at least) bathroom door.

Click

But his actions had not gone unnoticed, and Alex fell to the ground in front of the door, petrified with fear.

 

Celeste walked as quickly and quietly to the bathroom door as she could, cursing herself for her carelessness.

Yeah, I’ve always wanted to swear Neilson out, but what on earth possessed me to do it NOW?

She dropped to her knees in front of the door, her hand to her mouth.

“What the hell was I thinking…?”

David, for his part, was at least staying quiet, though out of fear, a newfound respect, or from just being plain miffed, Celeste didn’t know. Celeste removed her hand from her mouth and touched it to the door.

“A—Alex…?” Saying his name out loud hurt. She’d started making progress, but then she’d blown it, and now he was running scared… but Celeste was determined to not make the same mistake again.

Alex jumped at the sound of his name, and crab-walked away from the door at such a speed that he tripped over his hands and fell on his butt.

“L-leave me alone!” He squeaked. “You’re not her—you’re not Celeste Latiff! There’s no way in hell! You…You… Monster! Go away!” He slammed his hand over his mouth with a loud clap. His big mouth had gotten him in trouble before. And now he’d seen the bad side of the…being…that was on the other side of the door, and he was horribly shaken. But at least now, he knew what to expect. Normally, seeing the worst actually helped, but not this time. On the other side of the door, the giant spoke with an older version of the shy girl’s voice.

“Please…Alex… I’m so sorry…” Alex couldn’t see it, but Celeste had her forehead leaned upon the door. “I’m sorry you think I’m a monster… I’m s—“ Her voice choked up again. Alex hadn’t had to say it; it was plain to see in his eyes. But hearing that word out loud, directed at her, had been like a slap in the face. She took a deep breath, and tried again. “It’s horrible for the beings on this planet to call humans pets, just because of their size difference. I wish… I wish you could see past this size difference… What’s awful is that, if it wasn’t for my size right now, I wouldn’t have yelled at David just then. But… please, Alex, it really is me…” Her hand went back to her mouth, and she turned and looked at Neilson, who just shook his head. She’d messed up, bad. Now there was no taking it back. But as Celeste started turning away from the door, she heard Alex’s voice, low to the floor.

“Prove it.”

Her head snapped up so fast that she almost gave herself a concussion against the door frame.  A million stories ran through her mind, but she stopped. Knowing his name hadn’t convinced Alex; proving that she knew information about him wouldn’t gain his trust. So what was left? She closed her eyes tight, and took a deep breath.

“In high school, Sophomore year, there was a huge food fight. Principal Jay banned gum at the school for three weeks because it was stuck all over the walls afterwards. After graduation, there was STILL a set of initials under the table, written in gum: ‘JB’, courtesy of the starter of the fight, Jack Benhim. None of the staff ever figured it out.” There was a pause at the other side of the door. After a moment, however, Celeste heard footsteps, very small, but audibly moving to the side within the echoing bathroom.

“I… I can’t get the door open.”

Celeste leaned backward in shock. Behind her, David’s jaw had gone slack, his mouth hanging longer than he was tall. Celeste turned back to the door, swallowed hard, and reached her hand up to turn the knob.

Mission Minor Complication 7
Guess who's back from the dead!! (Myself or my characters? You'll never know ;) )
** Slight warning for swearing from the Agent who recently lost his marbles!**
So, I guess I lied, because here is the new chapter, 24 hours early! Enjoy!
(Also, DA wasn't letting me submit this as per normal, so I cheated this system and submitted through sta.sh first mwahaha!)

It's been so long that I can't remember how to spell Celeste's last name. I need to fix that later >.<;

Oh... a long time ago, I got a note requesting an explanation for how the chemicals/serum worked. Yeah... I'm horrible with that kind of thing, but... here's a shitty explanation, kind of, I guess? It's not much more than what I really had in mind. Honestly, in all of my time around GT stuff, that is the first time that I've heard a request for an explanation like that. And there have been some stories much more skimpier in information than mine. So here's an attempt, at least, in this chapter.

As for how the process will reverse? It's much more painful :(

With all new craziness, emotions... 
Yeah, I'm too tired to type; I have to work tomorrow xD
Anywho, I have the new chapter all typed, I swear; DA just isn't letting me submit it (grrrrrr). I hope I can get it up soon!
Thank you for all the support for the story, even while I was gone from DA.
Love you all, muches! <3

In other news, it looks like I have a great year ahead, and I hope my forecast is right.
After two years in a row ending in tears, a change of pace would be lovely. I've lost some friends, and gained others, and even made up with two of them, which was great. It's like history is repeating, but with several exception, and with a much better outcome. Is it the difference in age and time, or something else? I have no idea. But I'm in a happy mood, and I feel de-stressed and accomplished, so I won't over-think it for now. Honestly, there are still a few people I would like to apologize to... but I have no idea what the waters are like right now. I know longer feel like I want to clear the air, but rather to make it known that I'm sorry, I guess. Ah, well, time goes on, life goes on, and I am excited for the fall semester!

Things are looking up, and you can bet your bottom dollar that my writing will reflect that :)

Celeste has a mini flashback that further describes why she saved Alex in the first place, and Alex recognizes her--but what does that mean, exactly? find out in the next installment of--! //shot//

oh, sorry the beginning of this ya know...sucks. Oh, and you'll notice that David has fallen somewhat silent. that wont last long, believe me!

*****EDIT:
I've been getting a lot of comments hoping for a continuation of this story. (Actually, this is probably the most hype I've gotten for a deviation o.o) I'm happy to announce that, after a rather hectic year or so, I'm hoping to continue this, very soon. I'll be writing up drafts while I'm at work tomorrow! Thank you for all of the support! <3  *****
